Brownfield resolution approvedCouncils approval paves the way for rehabilitation and redevelopment of Seminole Mall By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE City council members unanimously approved a resolution declaring the Seminole Mall property a blighted and contaminated site at its Nov. 12 meeting.This was the first in a three-step process for the land to receive a Brownfield designation from the state, which would pave the way for the long-awaited redevelopment of the property, located at the northeast corner of 113th Street North and Park Boulevard. A Brownfield designation will aid the futureenvironmental remediation, rehabilitation and economic development of the Seminole Mall area. Such a designation could lend itself to tax credits and grant money for the malls new owners, Seminole Mall, LP, and also protect them from environmental liability during the propertys redevelopment. Following the citys approval, Seminole Mall LP can now take its appeal for a Brownfield designation to the state.Miami-based attorneyMichael Goldstein, the environmental counsel to Seminole Mall LP, said the mall property formerly housed a gas station and a dry cleaner. These businesses are the sources of the sites contamination, he added. The Brownfield designation will result in the streamlining and expedition of cleanups to accelerate redevelopment and job creation in Seminole, said Goldstein. Mayor Leslie Waters called the mall redevelopment an exciting project and a top project for our city. Councilor Jim Quinn said he was more than happy to approve the citys resolution and get the ball rolling on the sites redevelopment. As a member of the City Council and a representative of the residents of Seminole, I look forward to a bright and shiny new downtown area, he said. My hope is that Seminole Mall LP will accept this cooperation as a first step of presenting a beautiful new mall to the residents of Seminole.

Seminole St. Petersburg Clearwater 110713BOB EVANS HEARING CENTER Chamber president polls Seminole businesses By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE A year and a half ago, Seminole Chamber of Commerce President Roger Edelman decided he wanted to find a way to get in touch with the needs of local businesses. So he set out to visit and poll 100 local companies both big and small to ask them a series of questions: How do they like the Seminole area? What are some areas where they could improve? What are their views on working with city government? I just wanted to get out there and hit the pavement, Edelman said. There are a lot of different businesses in the community. I just dont know enough about the small businesses because Im not out there. He updated the City Council on his progress at a meeting this summer. At the time, he had met with 62 businesses, and earlier this month he met his goal of 100. Though he met with a few businesses that already belonged to the Chamber, the majority 92 hadnt joined yet. It gave me a chance to talk about what it means to be a part of the Chamber, Edelman said. Along the way, Edelman also found that business had picked up for the majority of the companies and 79 percent planned on hiring new employees this year. And 81 percent of the companies considered Seminole a good city to own a business and most viewed their dealings with the city and its staff in a positive light. Marketing and social media was the biggest concern for most businesses, Edelman added. Seventy-six percent of the companies said that marketing was their biggest challenge, and many of the businesses dont properly utilize social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Social media is a big one, Edelman said. [A lot of these businesses are] opening the doors and expecting the people will walk through it. Those are the businesses that are struggling Its a different world out there and you have to attract customers in a different way. As a result, the Chamber will organize free social media workshops for business owners to take place at some point this year. For more information about the Chamber, visit www.seminolechamber.net. approval to two developments: the construction of a Gordon Food Service (GFS) store at 5000 Park St. and the redevelopment of the existing Wendys fast-food restaurant at 10751 Park Blvd. The planned 10,000-squarefoot GFS, the third in the county, would be built on the northwest corner of Park Street and Sheen Drive, just north of the Kohls shopping center. Quinn, who travels to Clearwater to shop at the GFS in that city, reached out to the company two years ago and suggested they consider opening a store in Seminole. I sent them an email and asked them to look at our lovely city, Seminole, formerly known as Camelot, he said. The grocer provides food and anything you need for a restaurant or community event, Quinn said. Everything is right there. GFS is also open to the public. The Wendys is one of the oldest in Pinellas County and will be totally redeveloped. A second public hearing and final vote on both projects will take place at the councils Nov. 26 meeting.Bay Pines VA renamed to honor Bill YoungWASHINGTON, D.C. President Barack Obama signed legislation Nov. 13 by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and others to rename the Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medical Center in Florida after the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young. Nelson, who serves as a senior member of the Senates Armed Services Committee, was able to fast track the bill through the Senate, where it was approved Oct. 31 following House passage the week before. President Obama signed the bill Nov. 13. This is a fitting way to recognize Bill Youngs extraordinary legacy of public service and his unwavering support of our veterans, Nelson said. After 42 years in Congress, Young died Oct. 18 and was laid to rest in the Bay Pines National Cemetery Oct. 24 adjacent to the medical center that will now bear his name. According to the legislation, the Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Bay Pines is now known as the C.W. Bill Young Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. C.W.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3AFrom Seminole to Somaliland and backMayor Leslie Waters travels to Somaliland as consultant to local government officials, political partiesSEMINOLE In October, Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters travelled to Somaliland to provide consulting services to elected local government officials and political party leaders in the East African country. Mayor Waters was sent by the International Republican Institute and the U.S. Agency for International Development, two international support organizations. The purpose of this assignment was to work with city councilors and mayors in Somaliland. Her training forums focused on how to be more effective government officials; how to improve communications with the people of Somaliland; how important it is that elected and party officials work together on outreach events; and the significance of the planning and hosting of Town Hall meetings. Mayor Waters, with the oversight of the IRI Somaliland Country Director Bojan Ristic, and consulting partner Steve Pier, of Occident and Orient Development in Texas, trained over 150 people. Professions of attendees included physicians, camel and goat herders, fishermen, religious sheiks, educators and small business owners. Working with the good people of Somaliland was truly a humbling experience, said Mayor Waters, an experience where it was my intention to help make a difference in helping to enhance their democracy and improve the political process for the benefit of all Somalilanders. Somaliland is an unrecognized, self-declared defacto sovereign state that is internationally recognized as an autonomous region of Somalia. They have been a democracy for only 22 years. The countrys government is comprised of a president, cabinet, parliament and three branches of national government, as well as local government with mayors and councilors. Those who attended the training gained a great deal of knowledge on how to be effective elected officials, how to organize and plan community outreach events, and to how to better communicate constituents in their villages and communities, Mayor Waters said. Political parties benefited from trainings on how to help elected officials be successful, and how to grow their party influence and membership.Photo by MEGAN BADASCHA row of local shops in Somaliland.

Seminole Beacon, November 21, 2013 110812 112113 Outdoors 5A Photo courtesy of PHILLIP R. CONNELLGarrett Connell, a senior at Seminole High School, earned his Eagle Scout rank on Nov. 11. Connell is a member of Troop 279, which is supported by the Seminole Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. To earn this rank, Connell worked with the park rangers at Fort DeSoto Park on a beach preservation project. In recent years, stretches of the beach have suffered from erosion, and the park rangers along with the Pinellas County Parks and Recreation Department have tried to mitigate the erosion by planting sea oats. The sea oats root systems create and maintain dune systems, which help withstand beach erosion and provide a natural habitat for wildlife. In May 2012, Connell held a car wash fundraiser to raise the $400 needed to purchase the sea oats. On June 9, 2012, he organized and led a group of 50 volunteers to plant approximately 4,000 sea oat plants at a designated area of Fort DeSoto Beach. Connell is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society and Math Honor Society, and plays varsity soccer. He is in the process of applying to various universities and plans to major in pre-med.Eagle ScoutRedfish abound where schools of mullet are foundA combination of events has all played a part in what has been an amazing week on the water. Full moon tides, huge schools of pre-spawn mullet and a lot of cloud cover set the stage for a great redfish bite. Find the mullet and the redfish will be right with them. During the high tide the mullet have been bunching up in a typical pre-spawn pattern. As the thousands of mullet jump and belly roll about the reds are hanging below waiting for a chance at an easy meal. Live bait has been the ticket this week. However, cut bait or artificials would work as well. With a resurgence of bait into the area after our last cold front, baiting up each day has been easy. Look for the big schools of pilchards to be found all along the beach as long as we have an offshore wind. What-else Cooler water has begun to funnel the larger trout back into the shallows. Typical winter-time holding spots would be deep grass around many of the spoil islands as well as the edges of shallow grass flats were it sharply drops off to a deeper secondary flat. As long as the bait stays in the area so will our migratory fish. Kingfish and Spanish mackerel fishing has been red hot this week. Big Spanish mackerel can be found up and down the beach. Anchoring and live chumming will produce constant action from a variety of fish including the occasional cobia. Running larger bait such as a small jack crevalle under a balloon will put you in the kingfish game.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

The Greenlight Council, made up of local civic, business and government leaders, had asked for independent validation of financial assumptions for parts of the plan before granting approval. Those portions involve plans outlining proposed bus improvements and the implementation of a future light rail line. Scrubbing the numbers and being able to answer the publics question, If I give you my penny, can you do what you say youre going to do? with a resounding yes is very important and unusual, said Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority Chairman Ronnie Duncan. Its unusual to do this kind of detailed analysisFlorida strikes gold with record tourism in the third quarter By SUZETTE PORTERState and local officials are celebrating a banner year for tourism. More people visited Florida during the third quarter of 2013 than ever before, according to preliminary estimates released Nov. 15 by Visit Florida, the states tourism marketing corporation. About 22.9 million visitors came to Florida from July to September, an increase of 1.7 percent over the same time last year. Because every 85 visitors to our state supports one Florida job; a growing tourism industry equates to more jobs for Florida families and a stronger economy, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release. Estimates show that 72.6 million visitors made Florida their destination through the first three quarters of 2013 up 3.4 percent over last year. Visitor spending from January through August statewide was $51.8 billion, a year-over-year increase of 5.8 percent. Direct travel-related employment grew by 2.8 percent, providing an additional 29,700 jobs. So far this year, were up nearly 2.5 million visitors who increased their spending by almost $3 billion, led by a double digit increase in international visitors, said Tammy Gustafson, chair of Visit Floridas board of directors. This continued momentum is a testament to the strength of Visit Floridas marketing efforts, the power of the Sunshine State brand and the dedication of the nearly 1.1 million Floridians who work in the states tourism industry. According to Visit Florida, 19.5 million domestic visitors came to Florida during the third quarter of 2013 a 0.5 percent increase over 2012. About 2.9 million overseas visitors included Florida in their travel plans a 10 percent increase from last year, and 516,000 visited the state from Canada a 2.9 percent increase. Record visitor numbers equate to record spending, said Will Seccombe, president and CEO of Visit Florida. With taxable sales up, occupancy rates up, rental car collections up, bed taxes up and average daily room rates up, Floridas tourism industry has never been stronger.Pinellas enjoys record-setting yearPinellas County officials also are celebrating a new record. Bed tax collections topped $31 million during fiscal year 2013 the highest in the countys history. The Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office reported Nov. 5 that over a three-year period, 2011 to 2013, bed tax collections have increased, 7.7 percent in 2011, 12.3 percent in 2012 and another 8 percent in 2013. According to D.T. Minich, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater executive director, reaching the $30 million level is a significant milestone. Collecting $30,000 in bed tax allows Pinellas to meet the states criteria of a high impact tourism county. Local officials could add an additional penny to its bed tax, an increase from five cents to six cents. Bed tax collections pay for tourism marketing, beach restoration, bonds on area sports stadiums and other tourism-related initiativesST. PETERSBURG On the heels of a new annual record for all-time ridership, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority continues to post exceptionally strong ridership numbers as it starts its new fiscal year. In October, the agency provided 1,278,051 rides making for the second highest total for October in agency history. October 2012 was highest ever. PSTA officials said although ridership was up on their regular routes last month, the temporary closing of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for a movie shoot dropped shuttle ridership between CMA and Winters Dolphin Tale Adventure by more than 15,000 as compared to October 2012. When you consider the probable impact the new movie will have on our economy, the short term dip in ridership is nothing compared to the increases that were expecting after the movie opens, said PSTA spokesperson Bob Lasher. In the meantime, PSTA leaders continue working to find ways to meet the growing demand for ridership and to ease overcrowding on many routes. Agency leaders are also encouraged by the fact that the demand for service remains strong even though fuel prices have dropped precipitously over the past few weeks. They say that its very common for riders to continue using transit when fuel prices drop, since monthly bus passes are still cheaper than the average fill-up and they enjoy the stress relief of not having to drive on crowded roads. For more information, visit www.PSTA.net. To access real time bus information, visit www.Ride PSTA.net. Call the PSTA InfoLine at 540-1900. at this point in the process and for that I commend PSTA and its partners in this process. After receiving validation of the Greenlight Pinellas financial assumptions from experts at Ernst and Young and HNTB Corporation, the council unanimously voted to endorse the plan. Members will now take the plan to Pinellas County Commissioners and request that a funding proposal be placed on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot. Over the next few weeks, county staff will work with PSTA to craft ballot language for the referendum asking voters to change transit funding in Pinellas County from its current .7305 mill property tax to a one percent sales tax. That process will include a Commission workshop on Dec. 3 and a public hearing tentatively scheduled for Dec. 10. To learn more about the plan, along with supporting study documentation, visit www.greenlight pinellas.com.PSTA ridership continues to grow under the direction of the countys Convention and Visitors Bureau. Fifty-three percent of the tax goes to marketing and operations, 20 percent to debt service, 16 percent to reserves, 9 percent to beach nourishment and 2 percent pays for the Tax Collectors services. Minich attributes marketing efforts by Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, the countys destination marketing organization, for the record year. This is a result of aggressive marketing and very targeted messaging, Minich said. A lot has changed during the past several years, including our marketing approach. Were not relying on print as much, which gives us the ability to better target online within our feeder markets. Visit St. Pete/Clearwater revealed its marketing plan for 2014 on Nov. 13. The plan includes a first-ofits-kind nationwide marketing partnership with Floridas Natural, workplace elevator videos and snow-centric guerrilla marketing in cold-weather feeder markets and a continued evolution of the St. Pete/Clearwater brand that encourages visitors to Live Amplified, according to a press release. Officials say the new direction showcases the youthful vibrancy and diversity visitors experience in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, from soaking in the sunshine to rocking a kayak through mangroves to diving into the mind of Dali. Weve worked very hard to re-invent the St. Pete/Clearwater brand over the last six years, said VSPC Deputy Director David Downing. So this amped-up evolution is built upon a solid foundation, one based on market research and proven results of consistent tourism growth across our target markets. The plan also incorporates a shot of adrenaline for St. Pete/Clearwater logo, which will be bursting into 3-D print, and pulsing and spinning via animation in video and online. The logo will appear on 12 million Floridas Natural orange juice cartons in supermarkets throughout the United States starting in January. A St. Pete/Clearwater vacation sweepstakes teaser will appear on the front panel of the cartons, and a side panel ad will encourage people to enter for a chance to win a trip to the natural choice for a beach getaway. St. Pete/Clearwater is ready to begin its winter marketing campaign in New York and Chicago. Street-level advertising in Toronto will entice visitors with slogans such as We salt margaritas, not sidewalks.

Its a tradition, and its humbling, said Major Sean Jowell, with the Sheriffs Office Support Services, who has participated in Ride & Run with the Stars for more years than he can remember. This years event is Saturday, Dec. 7, 8 a.m. to noon, at Fort De Soto Park. Ride & Run with the Stars has taken place the first Saturday in December since 1983. The event was the brainchild of three former deputies, Michael Platt, Scott Stiner and Gary Herbine. Back in those days, employees of the Sheriffs Office would donate their own money to try to help families and children they knew needed help, especially during the holidays. But the need was too great. They couldnt do enough on their own. So, Platt, who retired as a captain and now works at the Sheriffs Office as range master, Stiner, now a retired captain, and Herbine, a retired lieutenant, came up with the idea to have a bicycle riding event at Fort De Soto to raise money for the children. It was a very simple thing, but it really took off and grew, Jowell said. Now, its the 20th anniversary. The event is the largest law enforcement organized holiday charity fundraiser in the Tampa Bay area. Over the years, more than $500,000 in donations and proceeds have gone to the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project. The money helps fulfill the wish lists of children, some known to the Sheriffs Office because they were involved with cases of violent crime. Others may come from families who were victims of economic crime. All have interacted with the sheriffs office for some reason. The families fill out an application and provide a wish list of needs. Members of the Christmas Sharing Project closely vet each family to make sure they arent getting help elsewhere and truly have a need. We spend hours going over the applications, Jowell said. The children dont ask for anything big, he said. The wish lists dont include the latest gaming console or newest phone. Its humbling to see that, he said. They ask for clothes, underwear, socks. We have teens asking for their very first bike. They ask for simple things. For the past few years, Bechtel Financial has donated bicycles and others have donated helmets. Jowell said Bechtel would be donating bicycles again this year. Helmets will come from the sheriffs office. No monetary goal has been set for this years event, just as much as we can possibly get, Jowell said. In recent years, the Ride & Run with the Stars has brought in between $40,000 to $50,000. More than a 100 volunteers from the sheriffs agency and others will gather at the Target on Tyrone Boulevard, which will open two hours early Dec. 17, to shop for each child on their list. It is likely that some wont get everything they requested. We purchase as much as we can, he said. It all depends on the number of children. Any leftover money pays for food for a holiday meal. Jowell said the sheriffs office usually collaborates with a local grocery store, in past years it has been Publix. Families get a gift certificate they can use to buy a turkey and sides. Prior to Christmas Day, Community Policing deputies play Santa and personally deliver the gifts to the families. Theyre all appreciative of what they receive, Jowell said. These families dont have a sense of entitlement.About the eventJowell said planning for Ride & Run with the Stars is a year-round activity, which contributes to its success. The main events focus on bicycling, running and walking. All activities take place within the scenic beauty of Fort De Soto Park. Registration begins at 7 a.m. Dec. 7. Advance registration is available online at www.rideandrunwith thestars.comor pick up a form at the Sheriffs Office, 10750 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Registration fee is $35 a person, which includes the selected race, a long-sleeve logo T-shirt (for the first 750 registrants), food and giveaways. For the $35 fee, participants can choose between the 25 mile run, which begins at 8 a.m.; a 10K Family Bike Ride, which starts at 8:15 a.m.; 5K certified race, which begins at 8:30 a.m.; or the 1-mile fun walk/skate, with a start time of 8:45 a.m. Parking fees at Fort De Soto Park are waived for registered participants. Jowell said the 5K chipped race was a first-time event. The electronic chips will accurately monitor each runners time. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded in each age group. He said the new event was part of the effort to make the event better every year. Lots of activities are planned and everyone is welcome whether they participate in one of the main events or not, Jowell said. The public can cheer on the racers, take part in a silent auction which is scheduled from 8 to 10 a.m. where bids will be taken on sports gear, getaways and gift baskets. Everyone is invited to test his or her climbing skills on the 25-foot Everest Challenge or browse the wares at the arts and crafts booths. A favorite event for many is a visit for Santa, Mrs. Claus and their elf, who are expected to arrive in a Sheriffs helicopter at 10 a.m. Jowell said the children always enjoy their visit with Santa, and they receive a small gift, such as a coloring book and Crayons or a stuffed animal. Special drawings and presentations are scheduled at 10:15 a.m. Grand prizes are high quality bicycles. Its definitely a good holiday event, Jowell said. We play Christmas music and set up Christmas trees. The surroundings are beautiful. Its a good time to interact with the community. Registration fees help fund the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project. Other money comes from sponsors and private donations. Almost all the money is spent on children and their families because the cost of the event is very low due to the many volunteers. For information about Ride & Run with the Stars sponsorship opportunities, registration and giveaways, call Jowell at 582-5959. For information about the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project or to adopt a family, call Sandra Garcia-Olivares at 582-6465.

Units arrived to find smoke on the second floor of the structure, and after investigating, they determined that it was a burned-up motor on an air conditioning unit, which was the source, according to a fire report.Students hospitalized after taking drugsSEMINOLE Five students at Seminole Middle School ended up at a local hospital Monday afternoon after they ingested prescription medications illegally brought to school by a classmate. Elizabeth Sauls, 14, of Madeira Beach, an eighth grade student at the middle school, 8701 131st St. N., brought the prescription medication hydroxyzine, which she took from her parents, to the school this morning. She distributed the medication to at least four other female eighth graders, and she took the drug herself. Later in the afternoon, the five teens began to feel ill. They were taken to a local hospital about 2 p.m. as a precaution. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported Monday evening that their condition was non-life-threatening. Sauls will be charged with one felony count of dispensing medication without a license and a misdemeanor count of possession of a prescription medication without a prescription. According to drugs.com, hydroxyzine reduces activity in the central nervous system. Hydroxyzine can cause side effects that may impair thinking or reactions, among other things.Man arrested in accidental shootingSEMINOLE A Seminole man was arrested Nov. 18 after accidentally shooting a 17 year old under his care. James Harrison Wolf, who has prior convictions of crimes in California, is being held on $7,500 bond at the Pinellas County Jail. He is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Wolf also is a registered sex offender.According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives the shooting happened just before midnight Sunday, Nov. 17, at a private residence on Anchorage Circle in Seminole. Detectives said Taylor Titus, 17, left his home about 9 p.m. without telling his caregivers, James Wolf, 55, and Nancy Wolf, 56, and returned home shortly before midnight. When Titus got home, Wolf was preparing to go to sleep and had turned off all the lights in the home. Wolf then heard a noise coming from the back of the home, grabbed his handgun and went to check his residence. Wolf noticed a subject near the backdoor and ordered him to freeze. The subject began to walk toward Wolf. Wolf then fired one shot, hitting the subject. When the subject stumbled toward Wolf, he realized it was Titus. Titus was transported to a local hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries.WKMJ 102.1 FM taken off the airPINELLAS PARK Officers with the Pinellas Park Police Departments Community Redevelopment Area Policing unit and investigators from the Federal Communications Commission wrapped up an investigation Nov. 15 of a pirate radio station operating within the city limits of Pinellas Park. Investigators determined that Joseph Kervenson, 27, of Kenneth City was listed as the CEO of the pirate radio station using the call letters of WKMJ 102.1 FM. According to a report from Pinellas Park police, the radio station was broadcasting over the FM airways without licensing from the FCC a third degree felony in the state of Florida. During the investigation, officers seized the radio transmitter and antenna used for the illegal broadcast. The business located at 6251 Park Blvd. Suite 9-F in Pinellas Park was secured and the radio broadcast was terminated. Kervenson was charged with unauthorized transmissions to, or interference with, a public or commercial radio station licensed by the FCC. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $5,000.Sheriff announces zero-tolerance for DUI By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri notified his staff Nov. 11 of a new zero-tolerance DUI policy. Driving while impaired by alcohol or controlled substances is not only illegal, it is dangerous and causes serious injury and death, Gualtieri said in his written notice. As members of law enforcement we must set an example for our community and adhere personally to the laws we enforce. Moreover, we must do the right thing and driving while impaired is doing the wrong thing. Every person who drives while impaired makes the bad decision to do so it is a conscious decision and a choice that disregards human life. Before Gualtieri changed the policy, members of the sheriffs office charged with a DUI would receive a seven-day suspension if they had no prior disciplines on their record. The existing general orders allows a discipline range from a seven-day suspension to termination. Gualtieri said, We have experienced more member involved DUIs recently, this troubles me greatly and it is something that must stop. Again the decision to drive impaired is a conscious decision and one that can easily be avoided. Gualtieri said the new policy applied only to DUI charges after the new policy went into effect Nov. 11. He communicated the new policy so everyone was aware in advance of the consequences of their actions. Effective immediately I will no longer impose the minimum seven-day suspension for DUIs and the consequence for any member of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office who operates a vehicle while above the legal alcohol limit of .08 percent blood alcohol content, or is convicted of a DUI will be termination of employment, Gualtieri said. This will be automatic and exceptions will not be made for anyone regardless of rank or position within the agency. Gualtieri said if a member of the sheriffs office refuses to blow during the criminal investigation, as is done now, a member of the Administrative Investigative Division would go to the jail and require an administrative blow. If the blow shows an alcohol level of .08 percent or higher, the employee would be terminated. I never want to be in the position of having to terminate anyones employment; however, I also do not want to be the one knocking on the door of someones home at 2 a.m. telling them that their loved one was killed by a DUI driver especially one that works for PCSO. There is an easy solution to avoid any consequence of this new policy dont drive while impaired.Results of Operation Safe Families availableLARGO Sheriff Bob Gualtieri recently announced the results of Operation Safe Families, a month-long Florida Sheriffs Task Force statewide operation targeting subjects wanted for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-support. Operation Safe Families began on Oct. 13 and ran through Saturday, Nov. 9. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcements 2012 Uniform Crime Report, 108,046 domestic violence offenses were reported to law enforcement agencies last year, and 202 individuals died as a result of domestic violence, which represents approximately 20 percent of all homicides in the state of Florida. In an effort to create a renewed consciousness and make the public aware of the very serious problem of domestic violence, the Florida Sheriffs Task Force launched Operation Safe Families. The initiative set out to target two classes of fugitives outstanding warrants for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-payment of child support. Across the state, 33 sheriffs offices joined the effort. The monthlong operation resulted in more than 5,500 arrest charges, including service of 387 domestic violence warrants and 772 writs of bodily attachment. The unified effort also was successful in making 2,586 probable cause arrests for domestic violence and in placing 89 children into protective custody. Additional arrests stem from other domestic violence related charges, among them resisting arrest with violence and without violence. Domestic violence impacts the lives of countless families and innocent children. Besides the immediate physical pain and emotional trauma often caused by domestic violence, I am greatly concerned because it is a cyclical behavior that harms the growth and development of the next generation our children. While the formal task force known as Operation Safe Families has ended, citizens should rest assured knowing that no matter what day it is, the sheriffs of Florida will continue working to combat domestic violence, Gualtieri said. The partnership between law enforcement agencies, certified domestic violence centers and the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence is critical in our collective efforts to ensure that perpetrators are held accountable for their violence. We always encourage anyone needing assistance to contact their local certified domestic violence center or the statewide Florida Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800500-1119, said Tiffany Carr, president and CEO for the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri Photo courtesy of CLEARWATER FIRE AND RESCUEFirefighters determined that a motor on an air conditioning unit was the cause of smoke at Crabby Bills Restaurant.

Still time to register for annual Turkey Trot races By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER Before stuffing bellies full of turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels can participate in the annual Tampa Bay Times Turkey Trot and sister races. The race options include the 10K Turkey Trot, the 5K Wingding, the 5K Fun Run, the 1-mile Gobbler, and the Clearwater Challenge, which is the 5K, 1-mile and 10K. The races all are on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, and all begin at Keene Road just south of Gulfto-Bay Boulevard except for the 5K Fun Run, and they end in Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School. The Wingding begins at 7 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 5K Fun Run begins at 7:30 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 1mile Gobbler begins at 8:30 a.m. and costs $14 in advance or $15 on race day. The 10K Turkey Trot starts at 8:45 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day, and the Clearwater Challenge begins at 7 a.m. and costs $35 in advance or $40 on race day. Competitors can register online at www.tampabay.com/turkeytrot, or at Fit 2 Run in either St. Petersburg or Tampa. The cost of registration includes the race, a T-shirt and goodies at the end of the race, said Skip Rogers, race director. People can register early through Friday, Nov. 22, at 3 p.m. For a full list of onsite registration locations, see the website. Late registration is available at limited locations through Monday, Nov. 25, at 3 p.m. Early T-shirt pickup and lastchance registration is available at the following times and locations: Monday, Nov. 25 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Bright House Networks, Westfield Countryside Mall on the second floor mall entrance near JC Penney, 27001 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or their T-shirt with race number and Tshirt tag. Tuesday, Nov. 26 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Fit 2 Run, 256 Second St. N., St. Petersburg. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or T-shirt with race number and T-shirt tag. The Turkey Trot Kickoff Party is set for Wednesday, Nov. 27, 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School, 540 S. Hercules Ave. Money needs to be the exact amount in cash or check format. The public is invited to enjoy a fun, free evening that includes live music, games, snacks, and the chance to buy official Turkey Trot merchandise in preparation for race day. Racers also will be able to pick up their T-shirts and race numbers. Its a community event, Rogers said. Wednesday night is like Homecoming. We provide free food and drinks, and people come out and sign up for Turkey Trot. We get college kids who come home for the holidays and they meet either at Turkey Trot or the day before. They can meet up with friends who they wouldnt otherwise have time to see. The race began in 1978 at Howard Park in Tarpon Springs and was on a Saturday and run by the YMCA. The director was from Buffalo, N.Y. He said, We do it on Thanksgiving morning, Rogers said. We kind of looked at him like he was nuts. But we moved it to Thanksgiving morning and we had 999 people who were at the race. And its naturally grown from that. Last year we had a record of 17,678 who ran it. The Clearwater Challenge is the newest addition to the race, which was added last year, Rogers said. A number of competitors already were doing it and nicknamed it the Turk-Can-Do, he said, and they asked if it could be made official. I interviewed a lot of people last year who were doing the challenge, and their interpretation was that it was a challenge, Rogers said. Those runners could easily do any one of the races, but doing all three is an extra challenge, especially since there is about a half mile from the finish line back to the start of the course and having to make it back there in time for the next race to begin. So in all, the runners are completing about 11.3 miles. The proceeds from the race benefit local charities, including the West Florida Y Runners Club Scholarship programs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Pinellas County and the Childrens Heart Foundation. Last year, $48,000 was given out in 24 $2,000 scholarships, and about another $100,000 was given to local charities, Rogers said. People are encouraged to also bring canned goods and nonperishable food items on race day to donate to the RCS Food Bank. People are encouraged to arrive at least an hour before the race because parking gets tight. Spectators and racers should not stand or walk on neighbors yards and instead should use the sidewalks. Competitors should line up according to speed, with the fastest runners at the front, the slowest and walkers in the back. Noncompetitive wheelchair participants should also start at the back of the crowd, and animals, bicycles, wagons, roller blades and skates are not allowed on the course. There will be one water station in the Wingding and three water stations in the Turkey Trot course. At the end, there will be free refreshments for all registered participants. Medical personnel at a medical tent also will be at the finish line. The first three male and female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot races in the Open, Master and Grand Master levels will receive trophies. The Master level is for people age 40 and older, and the Grand Master level is for people ages 50 and older. In the Gobbler race, the first-place male and female winners will receive trophies. Additionally, the first 125 male and 125 female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot will receive top finisher awards. People must be present to collect their awards, as they will not be mailed. The city of Clearwater is one of the major sponsors, and theyre very supportive of it and very happy, Rogers said. As far as demographics, it brings anywhere from 6-month-old kids to 90-yearolds doing it. Its probably one of the biggest events in Clearwater. At his last count, Rogers said there are registered runners from everywhere, including Alaska, Washington, D.C., California, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Canada. He said there were only about eight states that were not represented so far, but theres still time for more people to register.Photo by JIM LAYFIELDBriana Whaley of Clearwater took first place in the womens category of the Wingding 5K race in 2012.

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.

I have been designing and creating since I was a little child, Svyatogor said. I remember crafting dolls from hay and plants and then hand-sewing dresses for them. Svyatogor was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. Her affinity for creativity now apparent in her evening gowns, masquerade costumes, gothic garb, corsetry and even fetish wear started with her family. Both of her parents and her grandmother were artistic people, she said. I inherited a functional toy sewing machine that my mom used to play with when she was a child and started using it for my fashion projects. Then I learned how to knit and crochet from my grandmother, she explained. I was making all sorts of wearable things for myself and my family. Even my macram skills I applied to fashion, making and wearing dresses out of ropes, especially during my hippie years. Svyatogor has lived in Largo for most of the 15 years shes been in the United States. Yet the fact that she hails from the land of caviar and Catherine the Great is apparent in some of Svyatogors designs. Since she studied fashion and design in her native Moscow and graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa, its natural that the Old and New Worlds collide in her fashions. I like integrating different cultures for example, Victorian and futuristic cyber, or traditional classic with underground alternative. It makes for a unique and fun mixture, she said. Svyatogors avant-garde apparel includes everything from spiked corsets to dragon-patterned jackets in her arsenal. Her innovative wearable art has turned heads at shows and exhibitions such as Busch Gardens House of Vayne Fashion Show, featured in the parks 2009 Howl-O-Scream event. For a 2011 show Closet Artists: Art to Wear in St. Petersburg, she created several one-of-a-kind pieces including a dress made almost entirely out of red zippers. As a designer at Designs to Shine, a Pinellas Park-based business which sells distinctive ballroom gowns and dancewear, Svyatogor secured a spot on a team, which created attire for national TV, shows Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance? It is always exciting to see your creations on TV, but I feel the most satisfaction and fulfillment when I see people become instantly inspired and even empowered to dance and perform better while wearing my creations, she said. My goal is to create gowns in a way that when you put them on, you cant help but to want to start dancing and smiling. Svyatogor also is quite adept at making leather crafts, elaborate masks, elegant jewelry and stained glass art objects, which are also functional. I make fused glass air plant or orchid holders that you hang in the garden, and the stained glass looks so beautiful sparkling in the sun and moonlight, she said. It has also proven to be very good for the plants as they have all blossomed ever since I placed them in these glass holders. They provide just the right support, air circulation and moisture access for the plants to feel happy in them. Plus, they look pretty. Svyatogor is the owner of the Purring Angels Cattery, a home-based labor of love where she specializes in raising tiny teacup and toy-sized cats. One of the breeds, the lambkin, almost no one else in the country has. They are just starting to become known in big part thanks to my cattery, Svyatogor said. Animal Planet even filmed part of an episode of Cats 101 on the Lambkin breed in her home. My kitties were the stars in it, she said with a smile. The rare breed cats, like her art, are for sale, and Svyatogor has even shipped the kittens to such faraway places as Brazil and South Korea in order to find them good homes. To see them, visit purringangelscattery.com. Photo by BRETT BRANNINGFashion designer Ioulia Svyatogor of Largo poses in one of her designs with two of her cats. She also owns a cat breed business.Even when she is not busy raising rare kittens, conceptualizing fashions or crafting collectibles, Svyatogor always seems to find herself drawn to the world of art. I love visiting galleries, attending art shows and going to costumed and themed events and masquerades, she said. Pretty much anything creative is always of interest to me anything I can learn from, anything that is beautiful, pure, unordinary, meaningful, artistic and inspiring.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, November 21, 2013A year ago I made the mistake of subscribing to a nutrition advice publication called Eat right or die! They gave my name to other health and nutrition magazines. Now Im drowning in food-related advice and factoids. Here are some examples. Did you know that if you try to cook a rabbit in your microwave oven, the rabbit will really not appreciate it? You should first boil the rabbit in a large pot; the way Glenn Close did in the film Fatal Attraction. Next time your mother-in-law gives you a box of grapefruit or grapefruit juice, she may be trying to kill you. Thats because science has identified more than 85 common drugs that may interact poorly (i.e., explode) when brought in contact with grapefruit. Not actually explode. Just make you dizzy or cause gastrointestinal bleeding. If you dont eat right and put on too much weight, chances are your brain will turn into oatmeal faster than if you ate properly and stayed slim. Furthermore, if you have a low level of vitamin C and beta-carotene, you may be inviting Alzheimers disease into your life. So check with your doctor. Or at least have a beta-carotene discussion at your next bridge club or Elks meeting. Nutrition newsletters can be disillusioning, even though helpful. For the past 23 years my Aunt Rachel has been giving me 10 pounds of sea salt at Christmas. Its better for you than table salt, she said. And I believed her. So I spent the ensuing 12 months putting sea salt on everything I ate, including tapioca pudding. But Aunt Rachel was wrong. The experts now say that sea salt is not viable as a sodium-reduction measure. It contains almost as much sodium as table salt, and really doesnt taste that much better. For years, scientists and the food industry have been removing transfat and gluten from our diets. Where does all that unwanted stuff go, once its taken away? I have wondered that, and now I have an unconfirmed report: Nebraska. My sources tell me that two separate fields each 5 miles square, 40 miles west of Lincoln have been set aside for the gluten and transfat. Both substances will remain there for the next 20 years while the experts answer this question: What are we gonna do with this stuff? Have you noticed that during the past few years TV programs about food and cooking have increased almost as much as Spanishlanguage channels? Along with whiter teeth, clear skin and trashy sit-coms, Americans love food. One result of that is that more babies are being given the names of food items. Dont be surprised if you hear about infants named Aspic, Watercress, Finocchio, Ratatouille, Cumin and Horehound. Do you suffer from osteoarthritis? Are you easily confused by what you read? If so, forget about doing research on the various drugs and food supplements aimed at reducing arthritis pain. Youll end up not knowing whether to toss out or keep most of the contents of your bathroom shelf. A detailed report in Nutrition Action reported on studies of glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, fish oil, krill oil, Vitamin D and SAM-e all of which have been touted as painkillers for arthritis patients. The verdict on the studies: you might as well flip a coin to decide whether to buy these medicines. Pain reduction was either absent or minimal. Ive been popping glucosamine tablets for years, but now Im quitting. Alzheimers and peanut butter? Those were main items in a University of Florida study, in which subjects were asked to sniff a spoonful of peanut butter as it was held several inches from their noses. Of 94 patients tested, 18 had already been diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimers. All 18 were less able to smell the peanut butter with their left nostrils than their right nostrils. A degraded sense of smell is a recognized Alzheimers symptom. Because Alzheimers usually affects the left side of the brain first, researchers believe the sniffing test may help to better detect the onset of the affliction. But they warn the public that self-administered peanut butter tests be avoided, since odor sensitivity can be affected by many factors. In your nutrition reading, you are sure to find a warning about your favorite food or drink. The experts have a knack for finding something dangerous in almost every food or beverage known. But dont be discouraged. The flip side is that, each week, scientists discover that a previously-banned item has been given the okay. Even as I finish writing this column, I see on the Web that moderate consumption of beer may help ward off cancer. And several times a year researchers change their minds about coffee one month it will bring an early death, but a short time later we learn that caffeine may cure impetigo or conniption fits. So dont give up just keep reading, and eating.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.House Speaker John Boehner told reporters Wednesday that the GOP leadership has no intention of going to conference committee on the Senates comprehensive immigration bill passed in June. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy told Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles Director Angelica Salas last week that the House would not pass its immigration package this year. Not enough time. But in Washington, theres always time for the blame game. This week, The Hill ran a two-part autopsy on immigration reform and concluded: Both parties are responsible for the efforts demise. Boehner wouldnt commit. His rank-andfile didnt trust President Barack Obama to enforce a new law, given the presidents 2012 executive order to flout immigration law and halt the deportation of DREAM Act-eligible residents. The White House pressed House Democrats not to reach a deal before the Senate, even though the House is the linchpin. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., told The Hill: It is clear to me that there was no strategy on the White Houses part post-Senate victory. Because the Senate victory was the strategy. That statement confirms the rights longstanding suspicion that the left doesnt really want immigration reform, not when Democrats can use the issue to lather up anti-GOP anger among Latino voters. Obama did not deliver on his 2008 promise to push an immigration bill during his first year in office, even though Democrats controlled the White House, Senate and House during the first two years of his presidency. Only after Democrats lost the House in 2010 did that lame-duck body pass the DREAM Act to offer citizenship to children brought into the country illegally by their parents. Because supporters couldnt deliver the 60 votes needed in the Senate five Democrats voted no it tanked. Salas told me Tuesday that both parties hold equal responsibility for the measures failing. She insisted her group doesnt want to keep the issue alive to help one party bury the other. There is a way forward. The GOP caucus has been working on piecemeal bills to address immigration reform, including its own version of the DREAM Act, the Kids Act. The problem is, Salas noted, nothing is in writing yet. At least show your cards, she challenged. National Journal reported that Republicans are fighting over whether to allow DREAM kids to sponsor their undocumented parents for green cards. Understandably, Salas objects. Every citizen has that right, she said. If this Kids Act treats all citizens equally, her group would be wise to support it. Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year. Otherwise, their main contribution to the immigration debate will be passage of a measure to resume deporting DREAMers spared by Obamas pen. Is that the message they want to send to Latino voters? Id rather Americans hear the words of Kids Act supporter Eric Cantor. The House majority leader said in February, One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.Email Debra J.

Debra Saunders Jury duty proves interesting for newspaper editor John Deering is chief editorial cartoonist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the state's largest newspaper. Winner of the National Press Foundation's 1997 Berryman Award, Deering also gained top honors in the 1994 national John Fischetti Cartoon Competition and was the seven-time winner of the Arkansas Press Association's Best Editorial Cartoonist award. Born in 1956 in Little Rock, Deering has been drawing since his childhood fascination with science ction and dinosaurs. He and his wife, Kathy, have a daughter and two sons, and live in Little Rock. He still draws dinosaurs. About the cartoonistI have always felt its our civic responsibility to serve on a jury. But when a letter recently came in the mail from the Pinellas County Clerk of the Court, requesting my presence for jury duty, I had mixed emotions. On one hand, I looked forward to the opportunity to serve but on the flip side of the coin, like so many of us, I didnt have the time. After giving it some thought and discussing the matter with a colleague, I decided to postpone my day of duty to early November. The clerk agreed and I showed up on the day specified at the Pinellas County Justice Center on 49th Street. At 8 oclock sharp, about 125 of us filed into a large room where the waiting began. After we all filled out a brief questionnaire, the waiting continued. About a half-hour later we watched a pair of fairly good orientation videos, which outlined the history of the justice system in the United States and explained just why we were there that day. Then there was more waiting. Finally, about two hours into the process, a county employee informed us that there was a light docket that day and a good chance many of us would be excused early. I figured since Im a newspaper editor, I would probably receive that distinction. But no. About a half-hour later, a county employee read out a list of potential jurors who were excused. And, of course, I was not among them. OK, I thought, maybe today is the day I get selected. Time wore on before we were informed the remaining 50 or so of us needed to stay tuned. There might be a need for a jury panel involving some of us, they told us. And guess what, I got the call. So about 30 of us were escorted up to a fourth floor courtroom where jury selection began in the courtroom of Judge Timothy Peters. We were asked a number of questions, including would we be available if the case extended into a second day. I thought, sure, I can do that. But not everybody was on the same page. One woman, for example, got excused because she had two dogs at home that needed to have their medication by 6 p.m. Another said she wouldnt be available because her sons youth football team was playing in a big game over on the east coast of Florida and she would be in transit on the second day. Others had previous convictions, which basically eliminated them, and others had previous issues with being a victim of a crime. Others said they knew law enforcement members or had family members that were law enforcement officers. That pretty much eliminated them. After all of this, we all filed out of the courtroom, had lunch and came back to find out if we were selected. Juries in Florida have six members and an alternate. So seven of us were going to be selected. As the names were being called out, I thought again I might be excused. But no. When it came down to the sixth and final person, I got the call. A woman behind me was selected as the alternate. The jury of three men and three women was there to hear a felony case against a young Clearwater man charged with sale and possession of crack cocaine. The states case was based on the testimony of an undercover informant who said he purchased crack from the defendant in a Clearwater crack house about a year ago. The state reinforced the case with a video it claimed showed the transaction going down. On the night of the alleged deal, the informant was wired with an audio/video system that was invisible to those around him. Unfortunately, the Clearwater Police detective that set the informant up to wear it had no previous experience with the equipment and the camera shot haphazardly in the wrong direction. The audio worked OK but it was unclear who was speaking. So, in essence, the video/audio was inconclusive. We had to toss it out. Then there was the testimony of the informant and the police detective. The informant was doing this task only to keep himself out of jail from a previous drug conviction. He openly admitted he visited the crack house before the date of the alleged deal many times and continued to buy cocaine afterward, spending as much as $200 to $1,000 per week. His credibility was sketchy, at best. The police detectives testimony was good. But since he didnt actually see the deal happen (he was outside driving around in an unmarked car), there was no way of proving the defendant was the person who actually made the sale or was actually in possession of crack cocaine. There were at least seven people in the crack house that evening. So it could have been any number of those people who were in possession of crack and actually sold the drugs to the informant. After two hours of deliberation, we finally came to the conclusion that the defendant could not be found guilty on either charge. Was the defendant guilty? More than likely. But with the evidence the jury had to work with, a not guilty verdict was the only direction we could go. I walked out of the Justice Center that evening with mixed emotions about what had happened. But I took solace in the fact that the justice system did what it is supposed to do. As Judge Peters made clear to us on more than one occasion, we were to base our decision on the evidence. We did just that.Young family touched by show of support Editor: I wanted to take the time to say thank you to all of those who came out to show their respects and honor my brother. Not only at the public viewing and the service. As my family and I drove from the Indian Rocks church to Bay Pines we couldnt help but to notice your presence. My heart was deeply touched by all those who stood on the side of the rode waving the flags, saluting and sharing a piece of history with families and friends. Thank you, to all those who were waiting at intersections and in parking lots while the funeral procession went past. Thank you to all the businesses that have put signs out thanking and honoring Bill. My brother will be sorely missed not only locally and nationally but as well as in out familys hearts. As most of you know my brother and I came from humble beginnings together and I am proud of my brother and all that he has done for this country. The Tom Young family.

The public forum discussed the goal of achieving world peace. The panel of SPC professors and Sane Haidara, an immigrant student from Mali, led a thought-provoking discussion followed by questions being fielded from the audience. Seminole Lake Rotarian Chuck Oldanie, a Seeds of Peace volunteer, moderated the Nov. 14 event. Oldanie approached David Klement, the executive director of the Institute, about organizing the forum in April.

Fullerton of Seminole enrolled at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, this fall. Before classes began, Fullerton took part in an orientation that included an introduction to Colbys rigorous academics, rich cultural life, and community involvement opportunities as well as a threeday outdoor excursion. A graduate of Tampa Preparatory School, Fullerton is the son of Kenneth and Linda Fullerton of Seminole. The Class of 2017 was Colbys most selective to date, with an acceptance rate of 26 percent. The group represents diverse backgrounds 22 percent identify as students of color, 14 percent are international, and members of the class come from 41 countries and 35 states. Founded in 1813, Colby College is the 12th-oldest independent liberal arts college in the nation.CCC integrates technology into the classroomCLEARWATER Learning at Clearwater Central Catholic High School once meant pen and paper in the classrooms and computers in the media center or the computer lab. Thats changed. After several years of campus technology upgrades, this year the school had every student report to class with his or her own iPad. Using apps and other technology, teachers can integrate technology into lessons with the swipe of a hand. The result is whats known as a 1:1 technology school, where every student has a device for learning (an iPad 2 or higher). Dr. John Venturella, school president, says its an effective tool to help CCC students prepare for college and the workplace as leaders who can analyze information, understand problems and work with others to reach solutions. To that end, the schools Collaborative Learning Commons has a virtual library with online databases and reference books as well as more than 40 online LibGuides with customized links and instructions for class projects involving research. Teachers use class wikis, note-taking apps and polling apps to make written assignments and class discussions more interactive. Students with diagnosed learning differences can listen to audio versions of their texts through a Learning Ally subscription or apps that read test questions and other printed information aloud. Math teachers use the ShowMe app to make and share videos of solutions to math problems. More importantly, I require students to create these video ShowMe clips to demonstrate understanding, said Diane Sabatos in a press release. Sabatos is mathematics department chair. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher, Venturella said. It transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning.PCSB announces finalists for Support Employee of YearNine nominees have been named finalists in the 2013-14 Support Employee of the Year recognition program for Pinellas County Schools. The finalists were selected from a group of 79 nominees.

In previous years, a total of 21 semifinalists were chosen. Of those, three in each category advanced as finalists after a second round of judging. This year, in an attempt to streamline the program, three finalists in each category were selected during an initial round of judging.

Dr. Parveen Vahora, a board-certified OB/GYN, performed a robotic laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy. Dr. Keith Gregory Chisholm, a boardcertified general surgeon, performed a robotic laparoscopic single site cholecystectomy. The da Vinci Surgical System robot allows surgeons the opportunity to perform cervix-sparing hysterectomies and single-incision gallbladder surgeries, like those performed today which would have been impossible just a short time ago. The talent of our surgeons is supported by the range of motion and 3-D vision capabilities provided by the da Vinci robot, said Bruce Bergherm, president and CEO of Florida Hospital North Pinellas. Their passion and drive to provide the most advanced approaches to surgery to our patients is truly enhanced by this incredible technology. With minimally invasive procedures like a singlesite/incision gallbladder surgery, patients can expect shorter recovery times, less pain and dramatically lessened scarring. For example, with a single-site robotic laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the gallbladder is removed via an incision in the belly-button, rather than using a larger incision in the abdomen with traditional surgery, or multiple points of entry from a traditional laparoscopic procedure.Program offers outreach to homebound LGBT seniorsST. PETERSBURG The Metro Friendly Visitors, a group of LGBT seniors at Metro Community Center in the Kenwood area of St. Petersburg, is making a special outreach to homebound LGBT seniors throughout Pinellas County for communication and socialization. Those who participate in the Metro Center senior activities enjoy the good fellowship of regular group discussions and outings. However, members realize that there many in the community who are shutins due to ill-health and injury. The Metro Friendly Visitors program targets shut-ins, those who may be residing alone or in a group care setting. Metro Friendly Visitors needs help identifying those LGBT homebound seniors in Pinellas County who might welcome some companionship and regular visits from volunteers. For information, email Adam Jahr at adamj@metrotampabay.org. The Metro Friendly Visitors will meet Wednesday, Dec. 11, 3 p.m., at the Metro Community Center, 3251 Third Ave. N.Morton Plant to offer CarFit CLEARWATER Morton Plant Mease Memory Disorders Clinic and the Aging Well Center are teaming up to offer CarFit, a free, new safety program designed to help older adults learn how the fit of their vehicle affects their driving and how to use their vehicles safety features. The CarFit event will take place Friday, Dec. 13, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Aging Well Center at The Long Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road. Older drivers are considered safer drivers because they are more likely to wear seatbelts and less apt to speed. However, they are more likely to be seriously injured or killed from a car accident due to their bodies fragility and improper fit in their cars, CarFit program organizers say. Drivers who attend the free community event will have a 12-point checklist done in about 20 minutes that includes checking if the driver: is sitting correctly and positioned at least 10 inches from the steering wheel; can reach the pedals easily with ones foot instead of toes causing slower reaction time; and has the flexibility to adjust mirrors and minimize blind spots. Trained volunteers will recommend car and driver adjustments after the inspection. Drivers interested in having a CarFit check are asked to preregister. Call 724-3070. CarFit is an educational and safety program created by the American Society on Aging, and developed in collaboration with American Automobile Association, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association.Morton Plant seeks volunteersMorton Plant Mease Health Care provides a variety of volunteer opportunities at hospitals and facilities throughout Pinellas and Pasco counties.

In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldnt allow for any sort of inquiry into the sons whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.Weekend of a ChampionGenre: Documentary Cast: Sir Jackie Stewart and Roman Polanski Director: Frank Simon and Roman Polanski Not rated In 1971, motor racing fan Roman Polanski spent a weekend with world champion driver Jackie Stewart as he attempted to win the Monaco Grand Prix. Polanski was given intimate access to Stewarts world for three days, both on the track and off. The result is an extraordinarily rare glimpse into the life of a gifted athlete at the height of his powers. Some 40 years on, Polanski and Stewart meet once again. In a remarkable post-script, they discuss the sport, both past and present, with a unique and unmatched perspective.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly .com.

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.

PETERSBURG As a prelude to Worlds Aids Day, the Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project will present a staged play reading of Craig Lucas screenplay Longtime Companion on Monday, Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m., at American Stage Theatre, 163 Third St. N. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Admission is paywhat-you-will at the door. Advance purchase tickets are available for $15 each. A cash bar will be available. For information, call 823-7529 or www.americanstage.org. The production stars Katherine Michelle Tanner, Chris Crawford, Steve Garland, Brian Shea, Vincent Stalba, Drew DeCaro, Larry Alexander, Joey Panek, Jim Sorenson, Chris Jackson, Jonelle Marie Meyer and Daniel Harris. Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder, the audience watches the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of the protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry the audience from the it-couldnt-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on everyones lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as Longtime Companions of the deceased. By special permission from Craig Lucas, this one-night-only performance will benefit People with AIDS programs at Metropolitan Charities of Pinellas. The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness, provide assistance, and perpetuate a life of dignity for those affected and infected by HIV and AIDS.

He quickly landed a gig on the Uptown Comedy Club nationally syndicated show and later appeared on ABCs Home Improvement with Tim Allen. His big break happened in 1995 when he joined SNL.

The trials and tribulations of young love are difficult enough to deal with in ordinary settings. How I Live Now takes a tale of teenage romance and plants in the middle of World War III. How I Live Now blends themes of love, loss and familial accountability with a bleak dystopian near-future scenario. Daisy, a neurotic American teenager, is sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside by a father who doesnt seem to want to deal with her. She is initially portrayed as highly unlikable: She is bratty, selfobsessed and impolite. Her attitude toward her cousins Piper, Isaac and Eddie ranges from indifferent to belligerent. Gradually, however, she begins to let down her defenses. She discovers her deceased mother spent time at the home and that she even slept in the same room where Daisy is staying. More importantly, she finds a kindred spirit in her cousin Eddie. The two fall in love. That aspect of the story may be off-putting to some. Love stories between first cousins are controversial. In production notes provided by Magnolia Pictures, Saoirse Ronan makes the case that the relationship is more compelling. I think its stronger and almost more romantic that they are cousins, Ronan says. It makes their connection stronger. She tries to go against it because she knows it defies convention but its a lot more interesting than, Daisy goes to summer camp and meets this dude. Everything is against them but the fact that he understands her better than she does and figures her out straight away gives her such an attraction to him. Even as the romance blossoms in How I Live Now, the couples idyllic summer days are punctuated with increasingly alarming news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. The mood changes drastically when an unnamed enemy detonates a nuclear device in London, killing thousands and spreading fallout across the countryside. England is dragged into the conflict and martial law ensues. The family is forcibly separated by the British military, with the boys, Eddie and Isaac, conscripted into the army and the girls, Daisy and Piper, recruited as farm laborers. The remainder of the film depicts how Daisy takes responsibility for her 10-year-old cousin Piper and struggles to survive and find a way back to the house in the English countryside where she hopes to find Eddie. How I Live Now brings to mind some of the more notable World War III movies of the 1980s, including World War III, Testament, The Day After, Threads and the animated When the Wind Blows. Like these movies, How I Live Now delivers numerous sequences highlighting the brutality of war with startling realism. Most striking is a scene in which Daisy picks through a pile of corpses to see if either of her cousins is among the dead. Unlike its predecessors, How I Live Now shrewdly keeps the identities of its combatants a mystery. In the 1980s, the backstory of such films generally pitted the United States against the Soviet Union. Since the end of the Cold War, the likelihood of that showdown has greatly diminished and the threat of a global conflict has shifted to other potential adversaries. Because How I Live Now is seen through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, it is fitting that the political elements are downplayed in the film. Ronan gives a solid performance as Daisy. She has screen chemistry with her costar, George MacKay, but it is her rapport with Daisys young cousin Piper that is truly transfixing. For Eddie, MacKay employs the strong-and-silent template, serving up an appealingly provincial persona. Harley Bird plays Piper with stunning depth and range. Tom Holland is equally gifted as Isaac, who seems the only well-adjusted member of the family from the onset. The film is based on Meg Rosoffs novel of the same name, first published in 2004. It earned a number of prestigious literary awards, including the Guardian Childrens Fiction Prize. The book is written entirely in the voice of its heroine. The filmmakers, including director Kevin Macdonald, manage to replicate Daisys internal monologue in a series of wellplaced scenes. A tale of endurance and survival, How I Live Now is oddly mesmerizing. Featuring exceptional performances from its young cast, led by Ronan, and bolstered by striking cinematography and a vivid sense of dystopian anxiety, Macdonalds adaptation of Rosoffs novel is a modern coming-of-age story with emotional impact.6B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, November 21, 2013 DRIVER TRAINEES NEEDED NOW!

Tickets start at $29.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. McGuinn is best known for being the lead singer and lead guitarist of The Byrds, an American rock band that flourished from 1964 through 1973. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with The Byrds. The band boasted a signature sound featuring harmony singing mixed with McGuinns innovated jangly 12-string Rickenbacker guitar. Among the bands most enduring songs are their cover versions of Bob Dylans Mr. Tambourine Man and Pete Seegers Turn! Turn! Turn! along with the selfpenned originals, Eight Miles High, Ill Feel a Whole Lot Better, So You Want to Be a Rock n Roll Star, Ballad of Easy Rider and Chestnut Mare.According to McGuinns bio, provided by Skyline Music, the innovative guitarist was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scene when he co-founded The Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Prior to forming the Byrds, McGuinn toured and performed folk music with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player. He was also the musical director and guitarist on Judy Collins #3. McGuinn, a Chicago native, studied at the Old Town School of Folk Music and was active on Chicagos folk scene, where he was strongly influenced as a teenager by Bob Gibson. Within a few weeks of finishing high school, McGuinn was working with the Limeliters in California, playing guitar and banjo on their album Tonight: In Person. McGuinn is also on the Chad Mitchell Trios albums Mighty Day on Campus and The Chad Mitchell Trio at the Bitter End. After touring with singer Bobby Darin, McGuinn moved to New York at Darins request to work for his publishing company, TM Music, in the fabled Brill Building as a songwriter. He and Frank Gari co wrote the song Beach Ball and performed it with Darin, as the City Surfers in July 1963. After hearing the Beatles for the first time at the Brill Building, McGuinn began playing folk songs to a rock beat in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village. His experiments in merging folk and rock didnt please the folk purist, so he moved to Los Angeles to work at the Troubadour. It was after an opening set for Hoyt Axton that Gene Clark approached McGuinn with appreciation for his new musical blend. They started writing songs together in the folk den of the Troubadour. It wasnt long before David Crosby joined them and added his unique concepts of harmony to the duo, thereby completing the underpinnings for one of the most influential bands of the s. Within a few months, McGuinn, Clark & Crosby were looking to expand their group. Conga player Michael Clarke was recruited because he looked like two of the Rolling Stones. Mandolin player Chris Hillman was asked to join the group and to learn how to play the bass guitar. During a Thanksgiving dinner the band settled on the name Byrds, and success was just around the corner. Columbia Records signed the Byrds in January 1965 and they recorded their first No. 1 hit, Mr. Tambourine Man. In 1968 McGuinn and Hillman hired Gram Parsons and headed for Nashville where they recorded the now critically acclaimed Sweetheart of the Rodeo. McGuinn disbanded the Byrds in 1973 to pursue his dream of a solo career. He made five solo albums on Columbia Records. McGuinn rejoined Gene Clark and Chris Hillman in 1978 on Capitol Records for three albums. In 1981 McGuinn decided it was time to return to his folk roots and began touring solo acoustic. Arista records released Back From Rio in 1991, a rock album that included his friends, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello, Chris Hillman, David Crosby, Michael Penn and John Jorgensen. After touring extensively to support the album he returned to his roots folk music. In November 1995, McGuinn began recording and uploading to the Internet a series of traditional folk songs to his website. The recordings are available for free download at the FOLK DEN section of McGuinns official website mcguinn.com. The autobiographical one-man show, Live from Mars, was released on Hollywood Records in November of 1996. The album includes two studio tracks, May The Road Rise To Meet You, and Fireworks, recorded in Minneapolis with members of the Jayhawks. McGuinns next CD was recorded on Appleseed Recordings, titled Treasures From The Folk Den. The CD offered favorite songs from the Folk Den with the added bonus of duets with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Odetta, Jean Ritchie, Josh White Jr. and Frank and Mary Hamilton. It was nominated for a Grammy in 2002 in the category of Best Traditional Folk Album. On April 1, 2004 McGuinn released a CD, which he called Limited Edition because he sold it only via the Internet and at his live performances. Limited Edition is an eclectic blend of rock and roll, traditional folk music, new compositions and hip-hop. In 2011, McGuinn released CCD. According to the album notes, CCD reflects McGuinns love of sea shanties. His intricate finger work on various stringed instruments and the haunting quality of his Irish heritage vocal style will take the listener back to the days when mighty sailing ships explored the seas from the Kamchatka Bay to the Greenland whaling fisheries. The CD is wrapped in an eight-panel package that compliments the music. Along with photos of the ocean and three sailing ships, each song is briefly explained, enabling listeners to enjoy the intricate and historical lyrics as their feet tap to the rhyme of the waves. McGuinn was reportedly honored to be able to do a small part in preserving these songs of the sea on this CD. Following the release of CCD, McGuinn was asked what he thought his legacy would be. His response was not what one might expect The Byrds. Instead, McGuinn said he hoped to be remembered for using the modern age of technology to help keep the songs of old from vanishing in the wind.Photo by JOHN CHIASSON/SKYLINE MUSICRoger McGuinn shares his love of folk music and strives to keep songs of old from vanishing in the wind.

Celebrate The Fall SeasonWith These Local BusinessesCelebrate The Fall Season Mozarts Don Giovanni, the Spanish legend of Don Juan, the worlds most notorious womanizer, who becomes the target of three ladies. Don Giovanni is the second of the three great operas Mozart wrote in collaboration with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, with its world premiere at the Prague Opera in 1787. The opera is the most famous telling of the story of Don Juan, the opera, subtitled dramma giocoso, meaning playful drama masterfully combines uproarious comedy with moments of genuine tragedy. It contains some of Mozarts most brilliant melodies: the famous duet L ci darem la mano and Don Giovannis heartmelting serenade, Deh vieni alla finestra. The production will be sung in English.

VIEWPOINTSDebra SaundersLessons forGOP candidates. Page 15A. 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.

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 a report from Seminole Fire Rescue, Dawn Leonard, her daughter, Brittany, and Dawns father, Roger Lindblade were at home at the time of the fire, about 9:20 a.m. They smelled smoke and escaped the home just as firefighters arrived on the scene. 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.

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). In previous years, a total of 21 semifinalists were chosen. Of those, three in each category advanced as finalists after a second round of judging.

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. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.Sunlight Jr.Genre: Drama Cast: Naomi Watts, Matt Dillon, Norman Reedus and Tess Harper Director: Laurie Collyer Not rated Sunlight Jr. spotlights hard-working convenience store clerk Melissa (Naomi Watts) and her disabled boyfriend, Richie (Matt Dillon), who are trapped in a generational cycle of poverty. 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.

Brownfield resolution approvedCouncils approval paves the way for rehabilitation and redevelopment of Seminole Mall By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE City council members unanimously approved a resolution declaring the Seminole Mall property a blighted and contaminated site at its Nov. 12 meeting.This was the first in a three-step process for the land to receive a Brownfield designation from the state, which would pave the way for the long-awaited redevelopment of the property, located at the northeast corner of 113th Street North and Park Boulevard. A Brownfield designation will aid the futureenvironmental remediation, rehabilitation and economic development of the Seminole Mall area. Such a designation could lend itself to tax credits and grant money for the malls new owners, Seminole Mall, LP, and also protect them from environmental liability during the propertys redevelopment. Following the citys approval, Seminole Mall LP can now take its appeal for a Brownfield designation to the state.Miami-based attorneyMichael Goldstein, the environmental counsel to Seminole Mall LP, said the mall property formerly housed a gas station and a dry cleaner. These businesses are the sources of the sites contamination, he added. The Brownfield designation will result in the streamlining and expedition of cleanups to accelerate redevelopment and job creation in Seminole, said Goldstein. Mayor Leslie Waters called the mall redevelopment an exciting project and a top project for our city. Councilor Jim Quinn said he was more than happy to approve the citys resolution and get the ball rolling on the sites redevelopment. As a member of the City Council and a representative of the residents of Seminole, I look forward to a bright and shiny new downtown area, he said. My hope is that Seminole Mall LP will accept this cooperation as a first step of presenting a beautiful new mall to the residents of Seminole.

Seminole St. Petersburg Clearwater 110713BOB EVANS HEARING CENTER Chamber president polls Seminole businesses By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE A year and a half ago, Seminole Chamber of Commerce President Roger Edelman decided he wanted to find a way to get in touch with the needs of local businesses. So he set out to visit and poll 100 local companies both big and small to ask them a series of questions: How do they like the Seminole area? What are some areas where they could improve? What are their views on working with city government? I just wanted to get out there and hit the pavement, Edelman said. There are a lot of different businesses in the community. I just dont know enough about the small businesses because Im not out there. He updated the City Council on his progress at a meeting this summer. At the time, he had met with 62 businesses, and earlier this month he met his goal of 100. Though he met with a few businesses that already belonged to the Chamber, the majority 92 hadnt joined yet. It gave me a chance to talk about what it means to be a part of the Chamber, Edelman said. Along the way, Edelman also found that business had picked up for the majority of the companies and 79 percent planned on hiring new employees this year. And 81 percent of the companies considered Seminole a good city to own a business and most viewed their dealings with the city and its staff in a positive light. Marketing and social media was the biggest concern for most businesses, Edelman added. Seventy-six percent of the companies said that marketing was their biggest challenge, and many of the businesses dont properly utilize social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Social media is a big one, Edelman said. [A lot of these businesses are] opening the doors and expecting the people will walk through it. Those are the businesses that are struggling Its a different world out there and you have to attract customers in a different way. As a result, the Chamber will organize free social media workshops for business owners to take place at some point this year. For more information about the Chamber, visit www.seminolechamber.net. approval to two developments: the construction of a Gordon Food Service (GFS) store at 5000 Park St. and the redevelopment of the existing Wendys fast-food restaurant at 10751 Park Blvd. The planned 10,000-squarefoot GFS, the third in the county, would be built on the northwest corner of Park Street and Sheen Drive, just north of the Kohls shopping center. Quinn, who travels to Clearwater to shop at the GFS in that city, reached out to the company two years ago and suggested they consider opening a store in Seminole. I sent them an email and asked them to look at our lovely city, Seminole, formerly known as Camelot, he said. The grocer provides food and anything you need for a restaurant or community event, Quinn said. Everything is right there. GFS is also open to the public. The Wendys is one of the oldest in Pinellas County and will be totally redeveloped. A second public hearing and final vote on both projects will take place at the councils Nov. 26 meeting.Bay Pines VA renamed to honor Bill YoungWASHINGTON, D.C. President Barack Obama signed legislation Nov. 13 by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and others to rename the Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medical Center in Florida after the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young. Nelson, who serves as a senior member of the Senates Armed Services Committee, was able to fast track the bill through the Senate, where it was approved Oct. 31 following House passage the week before. President Obama signed the bill Nov. 13. This is a fitting way to recognize Bill Youngs extraordinary legacy of public service and his unwavering support of our veterans, Nelson said. After 42 years in Congress, Young died Oct. 18 and was laid to rest in the Bay Pines National Cemetery Oct. 24 adjacent to the medical center that will now bear his name. According to the legislation, the Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Bay Pines is now known as the C.W. Bill Young Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. C.W.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3AFrom Seminole to Somaliland and backMayor Leslie Waters travels to Somaliland as consultant to local government officials, political partiesSEMINOLE In October, Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters travelled to Somaliland to provide consulting services to elected local government officials and political party leaders in the East African country. Mayor Waters was sent by the International Republican Institute and the U.S. Agency for International Development, two international support organizations. The purpose of this assignment was to work with city councilors and mayors in Somaliland. Her training forums focused on how to be more effective government officials; how to improve communications with the people of Somaliland; how important it is that elected and party officials work together on outreach events; and the significance of the planning and hosting of Town Hall meetings. Mayor Waters, with the oversight of the IRI Somaliland Country Director Bojan Ristic, and consulting partner Steve Pier, of Occident and Orient Development in Texas, trained over 150 people. Professions of attendees included physicians, camel and goat herders, fishermen, religious sheiks, educators and small business owners. Working with the good people of Somaliland was truly a humbling experience, said Mayor Waters, an experience where it was my intention to help make a difference in helping to enhance their democracy and improve the political process for the benefit of all Somalilanders. Somaliland is an unrecognized, self-declared defacto sovereign state that is internationally recognized as an autonomous region of Somalia. They have been a democracy for only 22 years. The countrys government is comprised of a president, cabinet, parliament and three branches of national government, as well as local government with mayors and councilors. Those who attended the training gained a great deal of knowledge on how to be effective elected officials, how to organize and plan community outreach events, and to how to better communicate constituents in their villages and communities, Mayor Waters said. Political parties benefited from trainings on how to help elected officials be successful, and how to grow their party influence and membership.Photo by MEGAN BADASCHA row of local shops in Somaliland.

Seminole Beacon, November 21, 2013 110812 112113 Outdoors 5A Photo courtesy of PHILLIP R. CONNELLGarrett Connell, a senior at Seminole High School, earned his Eagle Scout rank on Nov. 11. Connell is a member of Troop 279, which is supported by the Seminole Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. To earn this rank, Connell worked with the park rangers at Fort DeSoto Park on a beach preservation project. In recent years, stretches of the beach have suffered from erosion, and the park rangers along with the Pinellas County Parks and Recreation Department have tried to mitigate the erosion by planting sea oats. The sea oats root systems create and maintain dune systems, which help withstand beach erosion and provide a natural habitat for wildlife. In May 2012, Connell held a car wash fundraiser to raise the $400 needed to purchase the sea oats. On June 9, 2012, he organized and led a group of 50 volunteers to plant approximately 4,000 sea oat plants at a designated area of Fort DeSoto Beach. Connell is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society and Math Honor Society, and plays varsity soccer. He is in the process of applying to various universities and plans to major in pre-med.Eagle ScoutRedfish abound where schools of mullet are foundA combination of events has all played a part in what has been an amazing week on the water. Full moon tides, huge schools of pre-spawn mullet and a lot of cloud cover set the stage for a great redfish bite. Find the mullet and the redfish will be right with them. During the high tide the mullet have been bunching up in a typical pre-spawn pattern. As the thousands of mullet jump and belly roll about the reds are hanging below waiting for a chance at an easy meal. Live bait has been the ticket this week. However, cut bait or artificials would work as well. With a resurgence of bait into the area after our last cold front, baiting up each day has been easy. Look for the big schools of pilchards to be found all along the beach as long as we have an offshore wind. What-else Cooler water has begun to funnel the larger trout back into the shallows. Typical winter-time holding spots would be deep grass around many of the spoil islands as well as the edges of shallow grass flats were it sharply drops off to a deeper secondary flat. As long as the bait stays in the area so will our migratory fish. Kingfish and Spanish mackerel fishing has been red hot this week. Big Spanish mackerel can be found up and down the beach. Anchoring and live chumming will produce constant action from a variety of fish including the occasional cobia. Running larger bait such as a small jack crevalle under a balloon will put you in the kingfish game.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

The Greenlight Council, made up of local civic, business and government leaders, had asked for independent validation of financial assumptions for parts of the plan before granting approval. Those portions involve plans outlining proposed bus improvements and the implementation of a future light rail line. Scrubbing the numbers and being able to answer the publics question, If I give you my penny, can you do what you say youre going to do? with a resounding yes is very important and unusual, said Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority Chairman Ronnie Duncan. Its unusual to do this kind of detailed analysisFlorida strikes gold with record tourism in the third quarter By SUZETTE PORTERState and local officials are celebrating a banner year for tourism. More people visited Florida during the third quarter of 2013 than ever before, according to preliminary estimates released Nov. 15 by Visit Florida, the states tourism marketing corporation. About 22.9 million visitors came to Florida from July to September, an increase of 1.7 percent over the same time last year. Because every 85 visitors to our state supports one Florida job; a growing tourism industry equates to more jobs for Florida families and a stronger economy, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release. Estimates show that 72.6 million visitors made Florida their destination through the first three quarters of 2013 up 3.4 percent over last year. Visitor spending from January through August statewide was $51.8 billion, a year-over-year increase of 5.8 percent. Direct travel-related employment grew by 2.8 percent, providing an additional 29,700 jobs. So far this year, were up nearly 2.5 million visitors who increased their spending by almost $3 billion, led by a double digit increase in international visitors, said Tammy Gustafson, chair of Visit Floridas board of directors. This continued momentum is a testament to the strength of Visit Floridas marketing efforts, the power of the Sunshine State brand and the dedication of the nearly 1.1 million Floridians who work in the states tourism industry. According to Visit Florida, 19.5 million domestic visitors came to Florida during the third quarter of 2013 a 0.5 percent increase over 2012. About 2.9 million overseas visitors included Florida in their travel plans a 10 percent increase from last year, and 516,000 visited the state from Canada a 2.9 percent increase. Record visitor numbers equate to record spending, said Will Seccombe, president and CEO of Visit Florida. With taxable sales up, occupancy rates up, rental car collections up, bed taxes up and average daily room rates up, Floridas tourism industry has never been stronger.Pinellas enjoys record-setting yearPinellas County officials also are celebrating a new record. Bed tax collections topped $31 million during fiscal year 2013 the highest in the countys history. The Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office reported Nov. 5 that over a three-year period, 2011 to 2013, bed tax collections have increased, 7.7 percent in 2011, 12.3 percent in 2012 and another 8 percent in 2013. According to D.T. Minich, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater executive director, reaching the $30 million level is a significant milestone. Collecting $30,000 in bed tax allows Pinellas to meet the states criteria of a high impact tourism county. Local officials could add an additional penny to its bed tax, an increase from five cents to six cents. Bed tax collections pay for tourism marketing, beach restoration, bonds on area sports stadiums and other tourism-related initiativesST. PETERSBURG On the heels of a new annual record for all-time ridership, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority continues to post exceptionally strong ridership numbers as it starts its new fiscal year. In October, the agency provided 1,278,051 rides making for the second highest total for October in agency history. October 2012 was highest ever. PSTA officials said although ridership was up on their regular routes last month, the temporary closing of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for a movie shoot dropped shuttle ridership between CMA and Winters Dolphin Tale Adventure by more than 15,000 as compared to October 2012. When you consider the probable impact the new movie will have on our economy, the short term dip in ridership is nothing compared to the increases that were expecting after the movie opens, said PSTA spokesperson Bob Lasher. In the meantime, PSTA leaders continue working to find ways to meet the growing demand for ridership and to ease overcrowding on many routes. Agency leaders are also encouraged by the fact that the demand for service remains strong even though fuel prices have dropped precipitously over the past few weeks. They say that its very common for riders to continue using transit when fuel prices drop, since monthly bus passes are still cheaper than the average fill-up and they enjoy the stress relief of not having to drive on crowded roads. For more information, visit www.PSTA.net. To access real time bus information, visit www.Ride PSTA.net. Call the PSTA InfoLine at 540-1900. at this point in the process and for that I commend PSTA and its partners in this process. After receiving validation of the Greenlight Pinellas financial assumptions from experts at Ernst and Young and HNTB Corporation, the council unanimously voted to endorse the plan. Members will now take the plan to Pinellas County Commissioners and request that a funding proposal be placed on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot. Over the next few weeks, county staff will work with PSTA to craft ballot language for the referendum asking voters to change transit funding in Pinellas County from its current .7305 mill property tax to a one percent sales tax. That process will include a Commission workshop on Dec. 3 and a public hearing tentatively scheduled for Dec. 10. To learn more about the plan, along with supporting study documentation, visit www.greenlight pinellas.com.PSTA ridership continues to grow under the direction of the countys Convention and Visitors Bureau. Fifty-three percent of the tax goes to marketing and operations, 20 percent to debt service, 16 percent to reserves, 9 percent to beach nourishment and 2 percent pays for the Tax Collectors services. Minich attributes marketing efforts by Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, the countys destination marketing organization, for the record year. This is a result of aggressive marketing and very targeted messaging, Minich said. A lot has changed during the past several years, including our marketing approach. Were not relying on print as much, which gives us the ability to better target online within our feeder markets. Visit St. Pete/Clearwater revealed its marketing plan for 2014 on Nov. 13. The plan includes a first-ofits-kind nationwide marketing partnership with Floridas Natural, workplace elevator videos and snow-centric guerrilla marketing in cold-weather feeder markets and a continued evolution of the St. Pete/Clearwater brand that encourages visitors to Live Amplified, according to a press release. Officials say the new direction showcases the youthful vibrancy and diversity visitors experience in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, from soaking in the sunshine to rocking a kayak through mangroves to diving into the mind of Dali. Weve worked very hard to re-invent the St. Pete/Clearwater brand over the last six years, said VSPC Deputy Director David Downing. So this amped-up evolution is built upon a solid foundation, one based on market research and proven results of consistent tourism growth across our target markets. The plan also incorporates a shot of adrenaline for St. Pete/Clearwater logo, which will be bursting into 3-D print, and pulsing and spinning via animation in video and online. The logo will appear on 12 million Floridas Natural orange juice cartons in supermarkets throughout the United States starting in January. A St. Pete/Clearwater vacation sweepstakes teaser will appear on the front panel of the cartons, and a side panel ad will encourage people to enter for a chance to win a trip to the natural choice for a beach getaway. St. Pete/Clearwater is ready to begin its winter marketing campaign in New York and Chicago. Street-level advertising in Toronto will entice visitors with slogans such as We salt margaritas, not sidewalks.

Its a tradition, and its humbling, said Major Sean Jowell, with the Sheriffs Office Support Services, who has participated in Ride & Run with the Stars for more years than he can remember. This years event is Saturday, Dec. 7, 8 a.m. to noon, at Fort De Soto Park. Ride & Run with the Stars has taken place the first Saturday in December since 1983. The event was the brainchild of three former deputies, Michael Platt, Scott Stiner and Gary Herbine. Back in those days, employees of the Sheriffs Office would donate their own money to try to help families and children they knew needed help, especially during the holidays. But the need was too great. They couldnt do enough on their own. So, Platt, who retired as a captain and now works at the Sheriffs Office as range master, Stiner, now a retired captain, and Herbine, a retired lieutenant, came up with the idea to have a bicycle riding event at Fort De Soto to raise money for the children. It was a very simple thing, but it really took off and grew, Jowell said. Now, its the 20th anniversary. The event is the largest law enforcement organized holiday charity fundraiser in the Tampa Bay area. Over the years, more than $500,000 in donations and proceeds have gone to the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project. The money helps fulfill the wish lists of children, some known to the Sheriffs Office because they were involved with cases of violent crime. Others may come from families who were victims of economic crime. All have interacted with the sheriffs office for some reason. The families fill out an application and provide a wish list of needs. Members of the Christmas Sharing Project closely vet each family to make sure they arent getting help elsewhere and truly have a need. We spend hours going over the applications, Jowell said. The children dont ask for anything big, he said. The wish lists dont include the latest gaming console or newest phone. Its humbling to see that, he said. They ask for clothes, underwear, socks. We have teens asking for their very first bike. They ask for simple things. For the past few years, Bechtel Financial has donated bicycles and others have donated helmets. Jowell said Bechtel would be donating bicycles again this year. Helmets will come from the sheriffs office. No monetary goal has been set for this years event, just as much as we can possibly get, Jowell said. In recent years, the Ride & Run with the Stars has brought in between $40,000 to $50,000. More than a 100 volunteers from the sheriffs agency and others will gather at the Target on Tyrone Boulevard, which will open two hours early Dec. 17, to shop for each child on their list. It is likely that some wont get everything they requested. We purchase as much as we can, he said. It all depends on the number of children. Any leftover money pays for food for a holiday meal. Jowell said the sheriffs office usually collaborates with a local grocery store, in past years it has been Publix. Families get a gift certificate they can use to buy a turkey and sides. Prior to Christmas Day, Community Policing deputies play Santa and personally deliver the gifts to the families. Theyre all appreciative of what they receive, Jowell said. These families dont have a sense of entitlement.About the eventJowell said planning for Ride & Run with the Stars is a year-round activity, which contributes to its success. The main events focus on bicycling, running and walking. All activities take place within the scenic beauty of Fort De Soto Park. Registration begins at 7 a.m. Dec. 7. Advance registration is available online at www.rideandrunwith thestars.comor pick up a form at the Sheriffs Office, 10750 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Registration fee is $35 a person, which includes the selected race, a long-sleeve logo T-shirt (for the first 750 registrants), food and giveaways. For the $35 fee, participants can choose between the 25 mile run, which begins at 8 a.m.; a 10K Family Bike Ride, which starts at 8:15 a.m.; 5K certified race, which begins at 8:30 a.m.; or the 1-mile fun walk/skate, with a start time of 8:45 a.m. Parking fees at Fort De Soto Park are waived for registered participants. Jowell said the 5K chipped race was a first-time event. The electronic chips will accurately monitor each runners time. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded in each age group. He said the new event was part of the effort to make the event better every year. Lots of activities are planned and everyone is welcome whether they participate in one of the main events or not, Jowell said. The public can cheer on the racers, take part in a silent auction which is scheduled from 8 to 10 a.m. where bids will be taken on sports gear, getaways and gift baskets. Everyone is invited to test his or her climbing skills on the 25-foot Everest Challenge or browse the wares at the arts and crafts booths. A favorite event for many is a visit for Santa, Mrs. Claus and their elf, who are expected to arrive in a Sheriffs helicopter at 10 a.m. Jowell said the children always enjoy their visit with Santa, and they receive a small gift, such as a coloring book and Crayons or a stuffed animal.

Units arrived to find smoke on the second floor of the structure, and after investigating, they determined that it was a burned-up motor on an air conditioning unit, which was the source, according to a fire report.Students hospitalized after taking drugsSEMINOLE Five students at Seminole Middle School ended up at a local hospital Monday afternoon after they ingested prescription medications illegally brought to school by a classmate. Elizabeth Sauls, 14, of Madeira Beach, an eighth grade student at the middle school, 8701 131st St. N., brought the prescription medication hydroxyzine, which she took from her parents, to the school this morning. She distributed the medication to at least four other female eighth graders, and she took the drug herself. Later in the afternoon, the five teens began to feel ill. They were taken to a local hospital about 2 p.m. as a precaution. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported Monday evening that their condition was non-life-threatening. Sauls will be charged with one felony count of dispensing medication without a license and a misdemeanor count of possession of a prescription medication without a prescription. According to drugs.com, hydroxyzine reduces activity in the central nervous system. Hydroxyzine can cause side effects that may impair thinking or reactions, among other things.Man arrested in accidental shootingSEMINOLE A Seminole man was arrested Nov. 18 after accidentally shooting a 17 year old under his care. James Harrison Wolf, who has prior convictions of crimes in California, is being held on $7,500 bond at the Pinellas County Jail. He is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Wolf also is a registered sex offender.According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives the shooting happened just before midnight Sunday, Nov. 17, at a private residence on Anchorage Circle in Seminole. Detectives said Taylor Titus, 17, left his home about 9 p.m. without telling his caregivers, James Wolf, 55, and Nancy Wolf, 56, and returned home shortly before midnight. When Titus got home, Wolf was preparing to go to sleep and had turned off all the lights in the home. Wolf then heard a noise coming from the back of the home, grabbed his handgun and went to check his residence. Wolf noticed a subject near the backdoor and ordered him to freeze. The subject began to walk toward Wolf. Wolf then fired one shot, hitting the subject. When the subject stumbled toward Wolf, he realized it was Titus. Titus was transported to a local hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries.WKMJ 102.1 FM taken off the airPINELLAS PARK Officers with the Pinellas Park Police Departments Community Redevelopment Area Policing unit and investigators from the Federal Communications Commission wrapped up an investigation Nov. 15 of a pirate radio station operating within the city limits of Pinellas Park. Investigators determined that Joseph Kervenson, 27, of Kenneth City was listed as the CEO of the pirate radio station using the call letters of WKMJ 102.1 FM. According to a report from Pinellas Park police, the radio station was broadcasting over the FM airways without licensing from the FCC a third degree felony in the state of Florida. During the investigation, officers seized the radio transmitter and antenna used for the illegal broadcast. The business located at 6251 Park Blvd. Suite 9-F in Pinellas Park was secured and the radio broadcast was terminated. Kervenson was charged with unauthorized transmissions to, or interference with, a public or commercial radio station licensed by the FCC. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $5,000.Sheriff announces zero-tolerance for DUI By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri notified his staff Nov. 11 of a new zero-tolerance DUI policy. Driving while impaired by alcohol or controlled substances is not only illegal, it is dangerous and causes serious injury and death, Gualtieri said in his written notice. As members of law enforcement we must set an example for our community and adhere personally to the laws we enforce. Moreover, we must do the right thing and driving while impaired is doing the wrong thing. Every person who drives while impaired makes the bad decision to do so it is a conscious decision and a choice that disregards human life. Before Gualtieri changed the policy, members of the sheriffs office charged with a DUI would receive a seven-day suspension if they had no prior disciplines on their record. The existing general orders allows a discipline range from a seven-day suspension to termination. Gualtieri said, We have experienced more member involved DUIs recently, this troubles me greatly and it is something that must stop. Again the decision to drive impaired is a conscious decision and one that can easily be avoided. Gualtieri said the new policy applied only to DUI charges after the new policy went into effect Nov. 11. He communicated the new policy so everyone was aware in advance of the consequences of their actions. Effective immediately I will no longer impose the minimum seven-day suspension for DUIs and the consequence for any member of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office who operates a vehicle while above the legal alcohol limit of .08 percent blood alcohol content, or is convicted of a DUI will be termination of employment, Gualtieri said. This will be automatic and exceptions will not be made for anyone regardless of rank or position within the agency. Gualtieri said if a member of the sheriffs office refuses to blow during the criminal investigation, as is done now, a member of the Administrative Investigative Division would go to the jail and require an administrative blow. If the blow shows an alcohol level of .08 percent or higher, the employee would be terminated. I never want to be in the position of having to terminate anyones employment; however, I also do not want to be the one knocking on the door of someones home at 2 a.m. telling them that their loved one was killed by a DUI driver especially one that works for PCSO. There is an easy solution to avoid any consequence of this new policy dont drive while impaired.Results of Operation Safe Families availableLARGO Sheriff Bob Gualtieri recently announced the results of Operation Safe Families, a month-long Florida Sheriffs Task Force statewide operation targeting subjects wanted for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-support. Operation Safe Families began on Oct. 13 and ran through Saturday, Nov. 9. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcements 2012 Uniform Crime Report, 108,046 domestic violence offenses were reported to law enforcement agencies last year, and 202 individuals died as a result of domestic violence, which represents approximately 20 percent of all homicides in the state of Florida. In an effort to create a renewed consciousness and make the public aware of the very serious problem of domestic violence, the Florida Sheriffs Task Force launched Operation Safe Families. The initiative set out to target two classes of fugitives outstanding warrants for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-payment of child support. Across the state, 33 sheriffs offices joined the effort. The monthlong operation resulted in more than 5,500 arrest charges, including service of 387 domestic violence warrants and 772 writs of bodily attachment. The unified effort also was successful in making 2,586 probable cause arrests for domestic violence and in placing 89 children into protective custody. Additional arrests stem from other domestic violence related charges, among them resisting arrest with violence and without violence. Domestic violence impacts the lives of countless families and innocent children. Besides the immediate physical pain and emotional trauma often caused by domestic violence, I am greatly concerned because it is a cyclical behavior that harms the growth and development of the next generation our children. While the formal task force known as Operation Safe Families has ended, citizens should rest assured knowing that no matter what day it is, the sheriffs of Florida will continue working to combat domestic violence, Gualtieri said. The partnership between law enforcement agencies, certified domestic violence centers and the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence is critical in our collective efforts to ensure that perpetrators are held accountable for their violence. We always encourage anyone needing assistance to contact their local certified domestic violence center or the statewide Florida Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800500-1119, said Tiffany Carr, president and CEO for the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri Photo courtesy of CLEARWATER FIRE AND RESCUEFirefighters determined that a motor on an air conditioning unit was the cause of smoke at Crabby Bills Restaurant.

Still time to register for annual Turkey Trot races By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER Before stuffing bellies full of turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels can participate in the annual Tampa Bay Times Turkey Trot and sister races. The race options include the 10K Turkey Trot, the 5K Wingding, the 5K Fun Run, the 1-mile Gobbler, and the Clearwater Challenge, which is the 5K, 1-mile and 10K. The races all are on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, and all begin at Keene Road just south of Gulfto-Bay Boulevard except for the 5K Fun Run, and they end in Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School. The Wingding begins at 7 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 5K Fun Run begins at 7:30 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 1mile Gobbler begins at 8:30 a.m. and costs $14 in advance or $15 on race day. The 10K Turkey Trot starts at 8:45 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day, and the Clearwater Challenge begins at 7 a.m. and costs $35 in advance or $40 on race day. Competitors can register online at www.tampabay.com/turkeytrot, or at Fit 2 Run in either St. Petersburg or Tampa. The cost of registration includes the race, a T-shirt and goodies at the end of the race, said Skip Rogers, race director. People can register early through Friday, Nov. 22, at 3 p.m. For a full list of onsite registration locations, see the website. Late registration is available at limited locations through Monday, Nov. 25, at 3 p.m. Early T-shirt pickup and lastchance registration is available at the following times and locations: Monday, Nov. 25 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Bright House Networks, Westfield Countryside Mall on the second floor mall entrance near JC Penney, 27001 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or their T-shirt with race number and Tshirt tag. Tuesday, Nov. 26 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Fit 2 Run, 256 Second St. N., St. Petersburg. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or T-shirt with race number and T-shirt tag. The Turkey Trot Kickoff Party is set for Wednesday, Nov. 27, 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School, 540 S. Hercules Ave. Money needs to be the exact amount in cash or check format. The public is invited to enjoy a fun, free evening that includes live music, games, snacks, and the chance to buy official Turkey Trot merchandise in preparation for race day. Racers also will be able to pick up their T-shirts and race numbers. Its a community event, Rogers said. Wednesday night is like Homecoming. We provide free food and drinks, and people come out and sign up for Turkey Trot. We get college kids who come home for the holidays and they meet either at Turkey Trot or the day before. They can meet up with friends who they wouldnt otherwise have time to see. The race began in 1978 at Howard Park in Tarpon Springs and was on a Saturday and run by the YMCA. The director was from Buffalo, N.Y. He said, We do it on Thanksgiving morning, Rogers said. We kind of looked at him like he was nuts. But we moved it to Thanksgiving morning and we had 999 people who were at the race. And its naturally grown from that. Last year we had a record of 17,678 who ran it. The Clearwater Challenge is the newest addition to the race, which was added last year, Rogers said. A number of competitors already were doing it and nicknamed it the Turk-Can-Do, he said, and they asked if it could be made official. I interviewed a lot of people last year who were doing the challenge, and their interpretation was that it was a challenge, Rogers said. Those runners could easily do any one of the races, but doing all three is an extra challenge, especially since there is about a half mile from the finish line back to the start of the course and having to make it back there in time for the next race to begin. So in all, the runners are completing about 11.3 miles. The proceeds from the race benefit local charities, including the West Florida Y Runners Club Scholarship programs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Pinellas County and the Childrens Heart Foundation. Last year, $48,000 was given out in 24 $2,000 scholarships, and about another $100,000 was given to local charities, Rogers said. People are encouraged to also bring canned goods and nonperishable food items on race day to donate to the RCS Food Bank. People are encouraged to arrive at least an hour before the race because parking gets tight. Spectators and racers should not stand or walk on neighbors yards and instead should use the sidewalks. Competitors should line up according to speed, with the fastest runners at the front, the slowest and walkers in the back. Noncompetitive wheelchair participants should also start at the back of the crowd, and animals, bicycles, wagons, roller blades and skates are not allowed on the course. There will be one water station in the Wingding and three water stations in the Turkey Trot course. At the end, there will be free refreshments for all registered participants. Medical personnel at a medical tent also will be at the finish line. The first three male and female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot races in the Open, Master and Grand Master levels will receive trophies. The Master level is for people age 40 and older, and the Grand Master level is for people ages 50 and older. In the Gobbler race, the first-place male and female winners will receive trophies. Additionally, the first 125 male and 125 female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot will receive top finisher awards. People must be present to collect their awards, as they will not be mailed. The city of Clearwater is one of the major sponsors, and theyre very supportive of it and very happy, Rogers said. As far as demographics, it brings anywhere from 6-month-old kids to 90-yearolds doing it. Its probably one of the biggest events in Clearwater. At his last count, Rogers said there are registered runners from everywhere, including Alaska, Washington, D.C., California, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Canada. He said there were only about eight states that were not represented so far, but theres still time for more people to register.Photo by JIM LAYFIELDBriana Whaley of Clearwater took first place in the womens category of the Wingding 5K race in 2012.

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.

I have been designing and creating since I was a little child, Svyatogor said. I remember crafting dolls from hay and plants and then hand-sewing dresses for them. Svyatogor was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. Her affinity for creativity now apparent in her evening gowns, masquerade costumes, gothic garb, corsetry and even fetish wear started with her family. Both of her parents and her grandmother were artistic people, she said. I inherited a functional toy sewing machine that my mom used to play with when she was a child and started using it for my fashion projects. Then I learned how to knit and crochet from my grandmother, she explained. I was making all sorts of wearable things for myself and my family. Even my macram skills I applied to fashion, making and wearing dresses out of ropes, especially during my hippie years. Svyatogor has lived in Largo for most of the 15 years shes been in the United States. Yet the fact that she hails from the land of caviar and Catherine the Great is apparent in some of Svyatogors designs. Since she studied fashion and design in her native Moscow and graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa, its natural that the Old and New Worlds collide in her fashions. I like integrating different cultures for example, Victorian and futuristic cyber, or traditional classic with underground alternative. It makes for a unique and fun mixture, she said. Svyatogors avant-garde apparel includes everything from spiked corsets to dragon-patterned jackets in her arsenal. Her innovative wearable art has turned heads at shows and exhibitions such as Busch Gardens House of Vayne Fashion Show, featured in the parks 2009 Howl-O-Scream event. For a 2011 show Closet Artists: Art to Wear in St. Petersburg, she created several one-of-a-kind pieces including a dress made almost entirely out of red zippers. As a designer at Designs to Shine, a Pinellas Park-based business which sells distinctive ballroom gowns and dancewear, Svyatogor secured a spot on a team, which created attire for national TV, shows Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance? It is always exciting to see your creations on TV, but I feel the most satisfaction and fulfillment when I see people become instantly inspired and even empowered to dance and perform better while wearing my creations, she said. My goal is to create gowns in a way that when you put them on, you cant help but to want to start dancing and smiling. Svyatogor also is quite adept at making leather crafts, elaborate masks, elegant jewelry and stained glass art objects, which are also functional. I make fused glass air plant or orchid holders that you hang in the garden, and the stained glass looks so beautiful sparkling in the sun and moonlight, she said. It has also proven to be very good for the plants as they have all blossomed ever since I placed them in these glass holders. They provide just the right support, air circulation and moisture access for the plants to feel happy in them. Plus, they look pretty. Svyatogor is the owner of the Purring Angels Cattery, a home-based labor of love where she specializes in raising tiny teacup and toy-sized cats. One of the breeds, the lambkin, almost no one else in the country has. They are just starting to become known in big part thanks to my cattery, Svyatogor said. Animal Planet even filmed part of an episode of Cats 101 on the Lambkin breed in her home. My kitties were the stars in it, she said with a smile. The rare breed cats, like her art, are for sale, and Svyatogor has even shipped the kittens to such faraway places as Brazil and South Korea in order to find them good homes. To see them, visit purringangelscattery.com. Photo by BRETT BRANNINGFashion designer Ioulia Svyatogor of Largo poses in one of her designs with two of her cats. She also owns a cat breed business.Even when she is not busy raising rare kittens, conceptualizing fashions or crafting collectibles, Svyatogor always seems to find herself drawn to the world of art. I love visiting galleries, attending art shows and going to costumed and themed events and masquerades, she said. Pretty much anything creative is always of interest to me anything I can learn from, anything that is beautiful, pure, unordinary, meaningful, artistic and inspiring.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, November 21, 2013A year ago I made the mistake of subscribing to a nutrition advice publication called Eat right or die! They gave my name to other health and nutrition magazines. Now Im drowning in food-related advice and factoids. Here are some examples. Did you know that if you try to cook a rabbit in your microwave oven, the rabbit will really not appreciate it? You should first boil the rabbit in a large pot; the way Glenn Close did in the film Fatal Attraction. Next time your mother-in-law gives you a box of grapefruit or grapefruit juice, she may be trying to kill you. Thats because science has identified more than 85 common drugs that may interact poorly (i.e., explode) when brought in contact with grapefruit. Not actually explode. Just make you dizzy or cause gastrointestinal bleeding. If you dont eat right and put on too much weight, chances are your brain will turn into oatmeal faster than if you ate properly and stayed slim. Furthermore, if you have a low level of vitamin C and beta-carotene, you may be inviting Alzheimers disease into your life. So check with your doctor. Or at least have a beta-carotene discussion at your next bridge club or Elks meeting. Nutrition newsletters can be disillusioning, even though helpful. For the past 23 years my Aunt Rachel has been giving me 10 pounds of sea salt at Christmas. Its better for you than table salt, she said. And I believed her. So I spent the ensuing 12 months putting sea salt on everything I ate, including tapioca pudding. But Aunt Rachel was wrong. The experts now say that sea salt is not viable as a sodium-reduction measure. It contains almost as much sodium as table salt, and really doesnt taste that much better. For years, scientists and the food industry have been removing transfat and gluten from our diets. Where does all that unwanted stuff go, once its taken away? I have wondered that, and now I have an unconfirmed report: Nebraska. My sources tell me that two separate fields each 5 miles square, 40 miles west of Lincoln have been set aside for the gluten and transfat. Both substances will remain there for the next 20 years while the experts answer this question: What are we gonna do with this stuff? Have you noticed that during the past few years TV programs about food and cooking have increased almost as much as Spanishlanguage channels? Along with whiter teeth, clear skin and trashy sit-coms, Americans love food. One result of that is that more babies are being given the names of food items. Dont be surprised if you hear about infants named Aspic, Watercress, Finocchio, Ratatouille, Cumin and Horehound. Do you suffer from osteoarthritis? Are you easily confused by what you read? If so, forget about doing research on the various drugs and food supplements aimed at reducing arthritis pain. Youll end up not knowing whether to toss out or keep most of the contents of your bathroom shelf. A detailed report in Nutrition Action reported on studies of glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, fish oil, krill oil, Vitamin D and SAM-e all of which have been touted as painkillers for arthritis patients. The verdict on the studies: you might as well flip a coin to decide whether to buy these medicines. Pain reduction was either absent or minimal. Ive been popping glucosamine tablets for years, but now Im quitting. Alzheimers and peanut butter? Those were main items in a University of Florida study, in which subjects were asked to sniff a spoonful of peanut butter as it was held several inches from their noses. Of 94 patients tested, 18 had already been diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimers. All 18 were less able to smell the peanut butter with their left nostrils than their right nostrils. A degraded sense of smell is a recognized Alzheimers symptom. Because Alzheimers usually affects the left side of the brain first, researchers believe the sniffing test may help to better detect the onset of the affliction. But they warn the public that self-administered peanut butter tests be avoided, since odor sensitivity can be affected by many factors. In your nutrition reading, you are sure to find a warning about your favorite food or drink. The experts have a knack for finding something dangerous in almost every food or beverage known. But dont be discouraged. The flip side is that, each week, scientists discover that a previously-banned item has been given the okay. Even as I finish writing this column, I see on the Web that moderate consumption of beer may help ward off cancer. And several times a year researchers change their minds about coffee one month it will bring an early death, but a short time later we learn that caffeine may cure impetigo or conniption fits. So dont give up just keep reading, and eating.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.House Speaker John Boehner told reporters Wednesday that the GOP leadership has no intention of going to conference committee on the Senates comprehensive immigration bill passed in June. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy told Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles Director Angelica Salas last week that the House would not pass its immigration package this year. Not enough time. But in Washington, theres always time for the blame game. This week, The Hill ran a two-part autopsy on immigration reform and concluded: Both parties are responsible for the efforts demise. Boehner wouldnt commit. His rank-andfile didnt trust President Barack Obama to enforce a new law, given the presidents 2012 executive order to flout immigration law and halt the deportation of DREAM Act-eligible residents. The White House pressed House Democrats not to reach a deal before the Senate, even though the House is the linchpin. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., told The Hill: It is clear to me that there was no strategy on the White Houses part post-Senate victory. Because the Senate victory was the strategy. That statement confirms the rights longstanding suspicion that the left doesnt really want immigration reform, not when Democrats can use the issue to lather up anti-GOP anger among Latino voters. Obama did not deliver on his 2008 promise to push an immigration bill during his first year in office, even though Democrats controlled the White House, Senate and House during the first two years of his presidency. Only after Democrats lost the House in 2010 did that lame-duck body pass the DREAM Act to offer citizenship to children brought into the country illegally by their parents. Because supporters couldnt deliver the 60 votes needed in the Senate five Democrats voted no it tanked. Salas told me Tuesday that both parties hold equal responsibility for the measures failing. She insisted her group doesnt want to keep the issue alive to help one party bury the other. There is a way forward. The GOP caucus has been working on piecemeal bills to address immigration reform, including its own version of the DREAM Act, the Kids Act. The problem is, Salas noted, nothing is in writing yet. At least show your cards, she challenged. National Journal reported that Republicans are fighting over whether to allow DREAM kids to sponsor their undocumented parents for green cards. Understandably, Salas objects. Every citizen has that right, she said. If this Kids Act treats all citizens equally, her group would be wise to support it. Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year. Otherwise, their main contribution to the immigration debate will be passage of a measure to resume deporting DREAMers spared by Obamas pen. Is that the message they want to send to Latino voters? Id rather Americans hear the words of Kids Act supporter Eric Cantor. The House majority leader said in February, One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.Email Debra J.

Debra Saunders Jury duty proves interesting for newspaper editor John Deering is chief editorial cartoonist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the state's largest newspaper. Winner of the National Press Foundation's 1997 Berryman Award, Deering also gained top honors in the 1994 national John Fischetti Cartoon Competition and was the seven-time winner of the Arkansas Press Association's Best Editorial Cartoonist award. Born in 1956 in Little Rock, Deering has been drawing since his childhood fascination with science ction and dinosaurs. He and his wife, Kathy, have a daughter and two sons, and live in Little Rock. He still draws dinosaurs. About the cartoonistI have always felt its our civic responsibility to serve on a jury. But when a letter recently came in the mail from the Pinellas County Clerk of the Court, requesting my presence for jury duty, I had mixed emotions. On one hand, I looked forward to the opportunity to serve but on the flip side of the coin, like so many of us, I didnt have the time. After giving it some thought and discussing the matter with a colleague, I decided to postpone my day of duty to early November. The clerk agreed and I showed up on the day specified at the Pinellas County Justice Center on 49th Street. At 8 oclock sharp, about 125 of us filed into a large room where the waiting began. After we all filled out a brief questionnaire, the waiting continued. About a half-hour later we watched a pair of fairly good orientation videos, which outlined the history of the justice system in the United States and explained just why we were there that day. Then there was more waiting. Finally, about two hours into the process, a county employee informed us that there was a light docket that day and a good chance many of us would be excused early. I figured since Im a newspaper editor, I would probably receive that distinction. But no. About a half-hour later, a county employee read out a list of potential jurors who were excused. And, of course, I was not among them. OK, I thought, maybe today is the day I get selected. Time wore on before we were informed the remaining 50 or so of us needed to stay tuned. There might be a need for a jury panel involving some of us, they told us. And guess what, I got the call. So about 30 of us were escorted up to a fourth floor courtroom where jury selection began in the courtroom of Judge Timothy Peters. We were asked a number of questions, including would we be available if the case extended into a second day. I thought, sure, I can do that. But not everybody was on the same page. One woman, for example, got excused because she had two dogs at home that needed to have their medication by 6 p.m. Another said she wouldnt be available because her sons youth football team was playing in a big game over on the east coast of Florida and she would be in transit on the second day. Others had previous convictions, which basically eliminated them, and others had previous issues with being a victim of a crime. Others said they knew law enforcement members or had family members that were law enforcement officers. That pretty much eliminated them. After all of this, we all filed out of the courtroom, had lunch and came back to find out if we were selected. Juries in Florida have six members and an alternate. So seven of us were going to be selected. As the names were being called out, I thought again I might be excused. But no. When it came down to the sixth and final person, I got the call. A woman behind me was selected as the alternate. The jury of three men and three women was there to hear a felony case against a young Clearwater man charged with sale and possession of crack cocaine. The states case was based on the testimony of an undercover informant who said he purchased crack from the defendant in a Clearwater crack house about a year ago. The state reinforced the case with a video it claimed showed the transaction going down. On the night of the alleged deal, the informant was wired with an audio/video system that was invisible to those around him. Unfortunately, the Clearwater Police detective that set the informant up to wear it had no previous experience with the equipment and the camera shot haphazardly in the wrong direction. The audio worked OK but it was unclear who was speaking. So, in essence, the video/audio was inconclusive. We had to toss it out. Then there was the testimony of the informant and the police detective. The informant was doing this task only to keep himself out of jail from a previous drug conviction. He openly admitted he visited the crack house before the date of the alleged deal many times and continued to buy cocaine afterward, spending as much as $200 to $1,000 per week. His credibility was sketchy, at best. The police detectives testimony was good. But since he didnt actually see the deal happen (he was outside driving around in an unmarked car), there was no way of proving the defendant was the person who actually made the sale or was actually in possession of crack cocaine. There were at least seven people in the crack house that evening. So it could have been any number of those people who were in possession of crack and actually sold the drugs to the informant. After two hours of deliberation, we finally came to the conclusion that the defendant could not be found guilty on either charge. Was the defendant guilty? More than likely. But with the evidence the jury had to work with, a not guilty verdict was the only direction we could go. I walked out of the Justice Center that evening with mixed emotions about what had happened. But I took solace in the fact that the justice system did what it is supposed to do. As Judge Peters made clear to us on more than one occasion, we were to base our decision on the evidence. We did just that.Young family touched by show of support Editor: I wanted to take the time to say thank you to all of those who came out to show their respects and honor my brother. Not only at the public viewing and the service. As my family and I drove from the Indian Rocks church to Bay Pines we couldnt help but to notice your presence. My heart was deeply touched by all those who stood on the side of the rode waving the flags, saluting and sharing a piece of history with families and friends. Thank you, to all those who were waiting at intersections and in parking lots while the funeral procession went past. Thank you to all the businesses that have put signs out thanking and honoring Bill. My brother will be sorely missed not only locally and nationally but as well as in out familys hearts. As most of you know my brother and I came from humble beginnings together and I am proud of my brother and all that he has done for this country. The Tom Young family. Pinellas Park Bob McClure Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year. Otherwise, their main contribution to the immigration debate will be passage of a measure to resume deporting DREAMers spared by Obamas pen. Is that the message they want to send to Latino voters?

Seminole Lake Rotarian Chuck Oldanie, a Seeds of Peace volunteer, moderated the Nov. 14 event. Oldanie approached David Klement, the executive director of the Institute, about organizing the forum in April.

Fullerton of Seminole enrolled at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, this fall. Before classes began, Fullerton took part in an orientation that included an introduction to Colbys rigorous academics, rich cultural life, and community involvement opportunities as well as a threeday outdoor excursion. A graduate of Tampa Preparatory School, Fullerton is the son of Kenneth and Linda Fullerton of Seminole. The Class of 2017 was Colbys most selective to date, with an acceptance rate of 26 percent. The group represents diverse backgrounds 22 percent identify as students of color, 14 percent are international, and members of the class come from 41 countries and 35 states. Founded in 1813, Colby College is the 12th-oldest independent liberal arts college in the nation.CCC integrates technology into the classroomCLEARWATER Learning at Clearwater Central Catholic High School once meant pen and paper in the classrooms and computers in the media center or the computer lab. Thats changed. After several years of campus technology upgrades, this year the school had every student report to class with his or her own iPad. Using apps and other technology, teachers can integrate technology into lessons with the swipe of a hand. The result is whats known as a 1:1 technology school, where every student has a device for learning (an iPad 2 or higher). Dr. John Venturella, school president, says its an effective tool to help CCC students prepare for college and the workplace as leaders who can analyze information, understand problems and work with others to reach solutions. To that end, the schools Collaborative Learning Commons has a virtual library with online databases and reference books as well as more than 40 online LibGuides with customized links and instructions for class projects involving research. Teachers use class wikis, note-taking apps and polling apps to make written assignments and class discussions more interactive. Students with diagnosed learning differences can listen to audio versions of their texts through a Learning Ally subscription or apps that read test questions and other printed information aloud. Math teachers use the ShowMe app to make and share videos of solutions to math problems. More importantly, I require students to create these video ShowMe clips to demonstrate understanding, said Diane Sabatos in a press release. Sabatos is mathematics department chair. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher, Venturella said. It transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning.PCSB announces finalists for Support Employee of YearNine nominees have been named finalists in the 2013-14 Support Employee of the Year recognition program for Pinellas County Schools. 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). In previous years, a total of 21 semifinalists were chosen. Of those, three in each category advanced as finalists after a second round of judging. This year, in an attempt to streamline the program, three finalists in each category were selected during an initial round of judging. The nine finalists will undergo a second round of judging and a winner will be chosen from each category, as well as an overall winner. The finalists are as follows: Direct involvement Kerry Afflitto, Bayside High School, Clerk II Mary MacEwen, 74th Street Elementary, Teacher Assistant Renee St. Onge, Brooker Creek Elementary, ESE Associate Indirect involvement Cathlene Burcham, Career Academies of Seminole, Data Management Technician Sandra Frazier, Paul B.

PETERSBURG Attendees will learn the best practices for integrating persons with disabilities in the workplace during the next Walgreens Bayside Business Forum, set for Friday, Nov. 22, 7:30 a.m., at Franklin Templeton, 100 Fountain Parkway N. Sponsored by the USF St. Petersburg College of Business, the forum is free and open to the public. Titled The Long Road: Employment for Persons with Disabilities, the event will feature JR Harding, Ed.D., of the Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities. He is a two-time presidential appointee, seventime Florida gubernatorial appointee, author of the book Now What?, and a recognized international disability expert. Harding has testified numerous times before the U.S. Congress and the Florida Legislature, resulting in an increase in independence and self-sufficiency for persons with disabilities. During the business forum, he will explain his personal journey to emphasize the challenges of self-sufficiency and the tools he used that could be helpful to others. Sustainability of our communities requires that we have better success in the field of disability integration, said Maling Ebrahimpour, Ph.D., dean of the USFSP College of Business. This is an important topic and we are fortunate to have Dr. Harding explain the challenges and rewards of hiring persons with disabilities. A continental breakfast and coffee will be served.

Health 17A Seminole Beacon, November 21, 2013 Obituaries Frances D. (nee Gunter) GOLDBERGage 71, passed away October 19, 2013 at her home in Largo, Florida after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was the beloved wife of Donald M. Goldberg, loving mother to Lisa and mother-in-law to Michael, adoring grandmother to Christopher, Amy, Zion and Rebeccah, and loving pet parent to her two dachshunds, Roxie and Bella. Frances was born January 1, 1942 in Albany, Kentucky, the only child of Grover and Olene Gunter. The family later relocated to Ohio, where she graduated from Princeton High School in Cincinnati, class of 1959, and went on to study at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Her career spanned more than 40 years, with her time divided between two corporations. She spent 17 years at General Electric Aerospace, Cincinnati, in technical publications; and subsequently as senior electronics buyer for Smiths Industries, Clearwater, Fla., from which she retired after 28 years of service. After a long career, Frances embraced retirement. She was an avid reader, crochet enthusiast, played weekly mahjong with her adorable ladies, served as Treasurer of Coquina Cove Residents, volunteered as a Deputy Poll Worker, was a splendid homemaker and a long time member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Celestine Chapter #185 of Cincinnati, for more than 40 years.

The public is invited to attend. Members promote tobacco-free environments for a healthier community. For information, call Kim Goldberg at 430-4727.Florida Hospital reports robotic surgery firstsTARPON SPRINGS It was a day of exciting firsts in robotic surgery at Florida Hospital North Pinellas recently, with the first gynecological and single-site procedures performed at the facility using the da Vinci Surgical System. Dr. Parveen Vahora, a board-certified OB/GYN, performed a robotic laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy. Dr. Keith Gregory Chisholm, a boardcertified general surgeon, performed a robotic laparoscopic single site cholecystectomy. The da Vinci Surgical System robot allows surgeons the opportunity to perform cervix-sparing hysterectomies and single-incision gallbladder surgeries, like those performed today which would have been impossible just a short time ago. The talent of our surgeons is supported by the range of motion and 3-D vision capabilities provided by the da Vinci robot, said Bruce Bergherm, president and CEO of Florida Hospital North Pinellas. Their passion and drive to provide the most advanced approaches to surgery to our patients is truly enhanced by this incredible technology. With minimally invasive procedures like a singlesite/incision gallbladder surgery, patients can expect shorter recovery times, less pain and dramatically lessened scarring. For example, with a single-site robotic laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the gallbladder is removed via an incision in the belly-button, rather than using a larger incision in the abdomen with traditional surgery, or multiple points of entry from a traditional laparoscopic procedure.Program offers outreach to homebound LGBT seniorsST. PETERSBURG The Metro Friendly Visitors, a group of LGBT seniors at Metro Community Center in the Kenwood area of St. Petersburg, is making a special outreach to homebound LGBT seniors throughout Pinellas County for communication and socialization. Those who participate in the Metro Center senior activities enjoy the good fellowship of regular group discussions and outings. However, members realize that there many in the community who are shutins due to ill-health and injury. The Metro Friendly Visitors program targets shut-ins, those who may be residing alone or in a group care setting. Metro Friendly Visitors needs help identifying those LGBT homebound seniors in Pinellas County who might welcome some companionship and regular visits from volunteers. For information, email Adam Jahr at adamj@metrotampabay.org. The Metro Friendly Visitors will meet Wednesday, Dec. 11, 3 p.m., at the Metro Community Center, 3251 Third Ave. N.Morton Plant to offer CarFit CLEARWATER Morton Plant Mease Memory Disorders Clinic and the Aging Well Center are teaming up to offer CarFit, a free, new safety program designed to help older adults learn how the fit of their vehicle affects their driving and how to use their vehicles safety features. The CarFit event will take place Friday, Dec. 13, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Aging Well Center at The Long Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road. Older drivers are considered safer drivers because they are more likely to wear seatbelts and less apt to speed. However, they are more likely to be seriously injured or killed from a car accident due to their bodies fragility and improper fit in their cars, CarFit program organizers say. Drivers who attend the free community event will have a 12-point checklist done in about 20 minutes that includes checking if the driver: is sitting correctly and positioned at least 10 inches from the steering wheel; can reach the pedals easily with ones foot instead of toes causing slower reaction time; and has the flexibility to adjust mirrors and minimize blind spots. Trained volunteers will recommend car and driver adjustments after the inspection. Drivers interested in having a CarFit check are asked to preregister. Call 724-3070. CarFit is an educational and safety program created by the American Society on Aging, and developed in collaboration with American Automobile Association, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association.Morton Plant seeks volunteersMorton Plant Mease Health Care provides a variety of volunteer opportunities at hospitals and facilities throughout Pinellas and Pasco counties.

It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.PhilomenaGenre: Drama Cast: Judi Dench and Steve Coogan Director: Stephen Frears Rated: R Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, Philomena focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock something her IrishCatholic community didnt have the highest opinion of and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldnt allow for any sort of inquiry into the sons whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.Weekend of a ChampionGenre: Documentary Cast: Sir Jackie Stewart and Roman Polanski Director: Frank Simon and Roman Polanski Not rated In 1971, motor racing fan Roman Polanski spent a weekend with world champion driver Jackie Stewart as he attempted to win the Monaco Grand Prix. Polanski was given intimate access to Stewarts world for three days, both on the track and off. The result is an extraordinarily rare glimpse into the life of a gifted athlete at the height of his powers. Some 40 years on, Polanski and Stewart meet once again. In a remarkable post-script, they discuss the sport, both past and present, with a unique and unmatched perspective.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly .com.

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.

PETERSBURG As a prelude to Worlds Aids Day, the Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project will present a staged play reading of Craig Lucas screenplay Longtime Companion on Monday, Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m., at American Stage Theatre, 163 Third St. N. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Admission is paywhat-you-will at the door. Advance purchase tickets are available for $15 each. A cash bar will be available. For information, call 823-7529 or www.americanstage.org. The production stars Katherine Michelle Tanner, Chris Crawford, Steve Garland, Brian Shea, Vincent Stalba, Drew DeCaro, Larry Alexander, Joey Panek, Jim Sorenson, Chris Jackson, Jonelle Marie Meyer and Daniel Harris. Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder, the audience watches the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of the protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry the audience from the it-couldnt-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on everyones lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as Longtime Companions of the deceased. By special permission from Craig Lucas, this one-night-only performance will benefit People with AIDS programs at Metropolitan Charities of Pinellas. The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness, provide assistance, and perpetuate a life of dignity for those affected and infected by HIV and AIDS.

The trials and tribulations of young love are difficult enough to deal with in ordinary settings. How I Live Now takes a tale of teenage romance and plants in the middle of World War III. How I Live Now blends themes of love, loss and familial accountability with a bleak dystopian near-future scenario. Daisy, a neurotic American teenager, is sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside by a father who doesnt seem to want to deal with her. She is initially portrayed as highly unlikable: She is bratty, selfobsessed and impolite. Her attitude toward her cousins Piper, Isaac and Eddie ranges from indifferent to belligerent. Gradually, however, she begins to let down her defenses. She discovers her deceased mother spent time at the home and that she even slept in the same room where Daisy is staying. More importantly, she finds a kindred spirit in her cousin Eddie. The two fall in love. That aspect of the story may be off-putting to some. Love stories between first cousins are controversial. In production notes provided by Magnolia Pictures, Saoirse Ronan makes the case that the relationship is more compelling. I think its stronger and almost more romantic that they are cousins, Ronan says. It makes their connection stronger. She tries to go against it because she knows it defies convention but its a lot more interesting than, Daisy goes to summer camp and meets this dude. Everything is against them but the fact that he understands her better than she does and figures her out straight away gives her such an attraction to him. Even as the romance blossoms in How I Live Now, the couples idyllic summer days are punctuated with increasingly alarming news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. The mood changes drastically when an unnamed enemy detonates a nuclear device in London, killing thousands and spreading fallout across the countryside. England is dragged into the conflict and martial law ensues. The family is forcibly separated by the British military, with the boys, Eddie and Isaac, conscripted into the army and the girls, Daisy and Piper, recruited as farm laborers. The remainder of the film depicts how Daisy takes responsibility for her 10-year-old cousin Piper and struggles to survive and find a way back to the house in the English countryside where she hopes to find Eddie. How I Live Now brings to mind some of the more notable World War III movies of the 1980s, including World War III, Testament, The Day After, Threads and the animated When the Wind Blows. Like these movies, How I Live Now delivers numerous sequences highlighting the brutality of war with startling realism. Most striking is a scene in which Daisy picks through a pile of corpses to see if either of her cousins is among the dead. Unlike its predecessors, How I Live Now shrewdly keeps the identities of its combatants a mystery. In the 1980s, the backstory of such films generally pitted the United States against the Soviet Union. Since the end of the Cold War, the likelihood of that showdown has greatly diminished and the threat of a global conflict has shifted to other potential adversaries. Because How I Live Now is seen through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, it is fitting that the political elements are downplayed in the film. Ronan gives a solid performance as Daisy. She has screen chemistry with her costar, George MacKay, but it is her rapport with Daisys young cousin Piper that is truly transfixing. For Eddie, MacKay employs the strong-and-silent template, serving up an appealingly provincial persona. Harley Bird plays Piper with stunning depth and range. Tom Holland is equally gifted as Isaac, who seems the only well-adjusted member of the family from the onset. The film is based on Meg Rosoffs novel of the same name, first published in 2004. It earned a number of prestigious literary awards, including the Guardian Childrens Fiction Prize. The book is written entirely in the voice of its heroine. The filmmakers, including director Kevin Macdonald, manage to replicate Daisys internal monologue in a series of wellplaced scenes. A tale of endurance and survival, How I Live Now is oddly mesmerizing. Featuring exceptional performances from its young cast, led by Ronan, and bolstered by striking cinematography and a vivid sense of dystopian anxiety, Macdonalds adaptation of Rosoffs novel is a modern coming-of-age story with emotional impact.6B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, November 21, 2013 DRIVER TRAINEES NEEDED NOW!

Tickets start at $29.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. McGuinn is best known for being the lead singer and lead guitarist of The Byrds, an American rock band that flourished from 1964 through 1973. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with The Byrds. The band boasted a signature sound featuring harmony singing mixed with McGuinns innovated jangly 12-string Rickenbacker guitar. Among the bands most enduring songs are their cover versions of Bob Dylans Mr. Tambourine Man and Pete Seegers Turn! Turn! Turn! along with the selfpenned originals, Eight Miles High, Ill Feel a Whole Lot Better, So You Want to Be a Rock n Roll Star, Ballad of Easy Rider and Chestnut Mare.According to McGuinns bio, provided by Skyline Music, the innovative guitarist was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scene when he co-founded The Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Prior to forming the Byrds, McGuinn toured and performed folk music with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player. He was also the musical director and guitarist on Judy Collins #3. McGuinn, a Chicago native, studied at the Old Town School of Folk Music and was active on Chicagos folk scene, where he was strongly influenced as a teenager by Bob Gibson. Within a few weeks of finishing high school, McGuinn was working with the Limeliters in California, playing guitar and banjo on their album Tonight: In Person. McGuinn is also on the Chad Mitchell Trios albums Mighty Day on Campus and The Chad Mitchell Trio at the Bitter End. After touring with singer Bobby Darin, McGuinn moved to New York at Darins request to work for his publishing company, TM Music, in the fabled Brill Building as a songwriter. He and Frank Gari co wrote the song Beach Ball and performed it with Darin, as the City Surfers in July 1963. After hearing the Beatles for the first time at the Brill Building, McGuinn began playing folk songs to a rock beat in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village. His experiments in merging folk and rock didnt please the folk purist, so he moved to Los Angeles to work at the Troubadour. It was after an opening set for Hoyt Axton that Gene Clark approached McGuinn with appreciation for his new musical blend. They started writing songs together in the folk den of the Troubadour. It wasnt long before David Crosby joined them and added his unique concepts of harmony to the duo, thereby completing the underpinnings for one of the most influential bands of the s. Within a few months, McGuinn, Clark & Crosby were looking to expand their group. Conga player Michael Clarke was recruited because he looked like two of the Rolling Stones. Mandolin player Chris Hillman was asked to join the group and to learn how to play the bass guitar. During a Thanksgiving dinner the band settled on the name Byrds, and success was just around the corner. Columbia Records signed the Byrds in January 1965 and they recorded their first No. 1 hit, Mr. Tambourine Man. In 1968 McGuinn and Hillman hired Gram Parsons and headed for Nashville where they recorded the now critically acclaimed Sweetheart of the Rodeo. McGuinn disbanded the Byrds in 1973 to pursue his dream of a solo career. He made five solo albums on Columbia Records. McGuinn rejoined Gene Clark and Chris Hillman in 1978 on Capitol Records for three albums. In 1981 McGuinn decided it was time to return to his folk roots and began touring solo acoustic. Arista records released Back From Rio in 1991, a rock album that included his friends, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello, Chris Hillman, David Crosby, Michael Penn and John Jorgensen. After touring extensively to support the album he returned to his roots folk music. In November 1995, McGuinn began recording and uploading to the Internet a series of traditional folk songs to his website. The recordings are available for free download at the FOLK DEN section of McGuinns official website mcguinn.com. The autobiographical one-man show, Live from Mars, was released on Hollywood Records in November of 1996. The album includes two studio tracks, May The Road Rise To Meet You, and Fireworks, recorded in Minneapolis with members of the Jayhawks. McGuinns next CD was recorded on Appleseed Recordings, titled Treasures From The Folk Den. The CD offered favorite songs from the Folk Den with the added bonus of duets with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Odetta, Jean Ritchie, Josh White Jr. and Frank and Mary Hamilton. It was nominated for a Grammy in 2002 in the category of Best Traditional Folk Album. On April 1, 2004 McGuinn released a CD, which he called Limited Edition because he sold it only via the Internet and at his live performances. Limited Edition is an eclectic blend of rock and roll, traditional folk music, new compositions and hip-hop. In 2011, McGuinn released CCD. According to the album notes, CCD reflects McGuinns love of sea shanties. His intricate finger work on various stringed instruments and the haunting quality of his Irish heritage vocal style will take the listener back to the days when mighty sailing ships explored the seas from the Kamchatka Bay to the Greenland whaling fisheries. The CD is wrapped in an eight-panel package that compliments the music. Along with photos of the ocean and three sailing ships, each song is briefly explained, enabling listeners to enjoy the intricate and historical lyrics as their feet tap to the rhyme of the waves. McGuinn was reportedly honored to be able to do a small part in preserving these songs of the sea on this CD. Following the release of CCD, McGuinn was asked what he thought his legacy would be. His response was not what one might expect The Byrds. Instead, McGuinn said he hoped to be remembered for using the modern age of technology to help keep the songs of old from vanishing in the wind.Photo by JOHN CHIASSON/SKYLINE MUSICRoger McGuinn shares his love of folk music and strives to keep songs of old from vanishing in the wind.

Celebrate The Fall SeasonWith These Local BusinessesCelebrate The Fall Season Mozarts Don Giovanni, the Spanish legend of Don Juan, the worlds most notorious womanizer, who becomes the target of three ladies. Don Giovanni is the second of the three great operas Mozart wrote in collaboration with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte, with its world premiere at the Prague Opera in 1787. The opera is the most famous telling of the story of Don Juan, the opera, subtitled dramma giocoso, meaning playful drama masterfully combines uproarious comedy with moments of genuine tragedy. It contains some of Mozarts most brilliant melodies: the famous duet L ci darem la mano and Don Giovannis heartmelting serenade, Deh vieni alla finestra. The production will be sung in English.

Christmas with the Baltimore Consort, Sunday, Dec. 15, at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, 324 Pine St. Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for members and students. The Baltimore Consort has delighted audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and earned their CDs a place on the Billboard Magazine Top 10 list. The Baltimore Consorts arrangements of early music from England, Scotland, France, Italy, and Spain speak to the heart as well as the mind, and their love for the early music of English/Scottish heritage has led them to delve into the rich trove of traditional balladry and dance tunes preserved in the Appalachian mountains and Nova Scotia. The group features Ronn Mcfarlane, lute; Mindy Rosenfeld, flutes, fifes, recorder, crumhorn; Larry Lipkis, viol, recorder, crumhorn, gemshorn; Mark Cudec, cittern, viol, recorder, crumhorn, guitars; Mary Anne Ballard, viols, rebec; Danielle Svonavec, soprano; and Jose Lemos, countertenor.

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.

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.

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.

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. 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 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.

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.
