VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenIts time to end the death penalty ... Page 13A. 40th anniversaryJotos Pizza celebrates four decades of pizza, family and community By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE In 1973, Fred and Carol Zinda, with their two young daughters in tow, sold all of their belongings and left behind their friends and family in rural Wisconsin to open a pizza franchise in Pinellas County.This week, as a testament to mom-and-pop chains everywhere, Jotos Pizza celebrates 40 years in business. Jotos will host special events at its Seminole location, 13050 Park Blvd., Saturday, Jan. 25, and Sunday, Jan. 26.Early yearsAt 31, Fred had a steady job working in a paper mill; Carol, then 28, was a legal secretary. Neither of them had any experience in the restaurant business. But their friends, a Michigan couple theyd met while on their honeymoon in 1966, had recently relocated to Orlando to open a Crustys Pizza franchise. They couldnt believe how much money they were making, Carol said. Pizza began to really take off in the 1960s, she said. Until then, it wasnt very popular. But by the time the Zindas considered opening a pizza joint of their own in the early 1970s, it had become the number one food in the country. So they headed south in 1973, landing in Pinellas Park, where they rented a mobile home and opened a Crustys Pizza on 49th Street. When they arrived in September of that year, Pinellas Park businesses were facing a moratorium on construction. So their grand opening, originally planned for October, was delayed. Those first few months were the toughest of their lives, Carol said; most nights shed cry herself to sleep she was so homesick. And they lived off their savings while Fred traveled to the Orlando Crustys for on-the-job training as they waited for their own stores grand opening. We had to sell everything to move, she said. We went into debt to open this franchise. It was pure hell at first. We couldnt afford groceries. We survived on our menu items. They eventually opened on Jan. 22, 1974. They made only $60 that first day, Carol said. But slowly, as the Zindas planted roots in the community, the business grew. In 1977, they decided to break away from the Michigan-based franchise. For the royalties [Crustys] got from us, we werent getting enough back from them in return, Carol said. They really werent supportive. So the couple founded Jotos, the name a combination of their daughters first names Tori and Jodi. We had to come up with our own recipes for sauce and dough, Carol said. We still use them today.Jotos expandsThe Zindas didnt let their inexperience hold them back. Even though we didnt know anything about the business, said Fred, we were very people-oriented. This was the key to their success and the driving force behind their growth.In 1982, the couple opened up its Seminole location. The following year, they expanded to Gulfport, on 15th Avenue and 58th Street South.

Pinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel and Intergovernmental Relations Manager Wendy Nero recently took a trip to Washington, D.C., to talk to federal lawmakers about the undue burden being placed on local property owners and real estate. The women gave a report to the commission during the Jan. 14 meeting. Seel said they communicated the impact that the Biggert-Waters Act was having on Pinellas County, which has the largest number of affected policyholders in the National Flood Insurance Program. She said they wanted federal officials to understand that the hardship wasnt just on wealthy beach property owners. More than 46,000 properties with a median value of $132,245 are facing drastic increases in flood insurance premiums compared to only 253 at values more than $1 million. More than 22,000 properties arent on the waterfront and have no water view. Approximately 17 percent of the countys tax base is affected. It was eye-opening and frustrating, Nero said of the trip. She added that she believes they were able to bring a greater level of awareness and sensitivity to the issue. Nero said it was important for lawmakers to understand the different challenges facing people in Florida as compared to those in Louisiana and other parts of the nation. She said a big concern for people with rate increases was that they had no recourse and no advocacy. One of the most significant messages is that simply delaying NFIP reform isnt the solution, Nero said. We have to make the program solvent and not do it in four years, she said. Among measures Congress is considering is a delay until an affordability study can be completed. Another idea is to reduce the increases from 25 percent to 10 percent. Another is to tie insurance rates to the property, not the owner, to keep insurance rates stable. A push is on to empower consumer justice to provide an independent review of rates and advance notice along with an appeals process, Nero said. She said things were beginning to happen fast with the Senate expected to take up something within the next few weeks. She said the bigger challenge would come from the House.

By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council authorized the allocation of $295,100 from its fiscal year 2013 year-end fund balance to address council goals and city needs at its Jan. 14 meeting. The Administration Department will get an additional $85,600 for office equipment as well as to fund public art and city branding projects. Another $80,000 will go to the library. The council provides this amount to the library each year to purchase new circulation materials. Public Works will receive $76,000 for professional and contract services, the planned community garden and the purchase of traffic calming devices. The recreation center also will receive $41,500 to recondition two pools and the Charter Section will receive $12,000 for office equipment and an email record retention system.In other action items, the City Council: approved the use of up to $6,000 in contingency funds for the demolition of an abandoned house at 10148 66th Ave. This is an unusual move by the city, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. The city has contacted the structures owners, but received no reply, and there is no known mortgage on the house, he said. At this point, he added, its become a safety concern. Demolition will take place within the next few weeks and a lien for the amount will be placed against the property, Edmunds said. named Vice Mayor Thomas Barnhorn as the citys representative for the Pinellas County Commissioners initiative to fight the National Flood Insurance Program rate hikes.OUTDOORSDolphin WatchLike the weather right now?

By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners had a full plate of public hearings for the first commission meeting of 2014. Commissioners unanimously agreed Jan. 14 to changes to the false alarm ordinance recommended by Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, including fee changes. PCSO Chief Deputy George S. Steffen said the ordinance first enacted in 2009 due to an excessive number of false alarm calls that were taxing resources at the sheriffs office had proved successful with a 37 percent drop in incidents. But, the ordinance had no way to enforce payment of fines. Steffen said it had never been the intention to collect fines; the goal was to reduce false alarms and to get people to register. Those who register are allowed two false alarms annually before fines are charged. Fine amounts go up with the number of false alarms. Those fined for a false alarm can either pay or request a hearing to dispute it. But there was nothing in the ordinance to enforceCommission updates false alarm ordinancePhoto courtesy of JODI WHITCOMBFred and Carol Zinda, founders of Jotos Pizza, with their daughters Tori Thrower, front, and Jodi Whitcomb, far right, outside one of their restaurants in 1978.

Several years later, in 2003, eager to take advantage of the beach traffic, they opened a Jotos on West Bay Drive. They also expanded their menu over the years as well. In 1977, their first menu only included two subs and one pizza, Fred said. Today, their menu lists dozens of items, as well as a separate childrens menu. And in order to keep up with bigger chains, Jotos was forced to evolve the way it conducted business; it wasnt long before the chain delivered orders to customers doors, accepted credit cards and sold pizza by the slice. Fred said, Over the years, we realized when in Rome, you do as the Romans do. You have to go with the changes.A family affairToday their family only owns two Jotos the one in Seminole and the Bayou Center location, the lone survivors, Carol said. A third Jotos on 49th Street in Pinellas Park mere blocks from the original location is also still open, but it was sold to a former employee in the late 1980s. The economy hit us pretty hard, said the Zindas daughter Jodi Whitcomb. But these two are still going strong. She doesnt rule out Jotos opening new restaurants as the economy improves. In the past decade, her parents, who now live in North Redington Beach, have stepped back from the business, while Jodi; her husband, Steve Whitcomb; sister, Tori Thrower; and brotherin-law, Brent Thrower run the show. A CPA who worked for the city of Largo, Jodi seamlessly stepped in to fill her mothers shoes, taking over bookkeeping for the company. It made sense for Steve and Brent, both with a sales background, to each manage one restaurant. And Tori, who taught at Dale Mabry Elementary School and Skyview Elementary School, assists with day-to-day operations and major decisions at Jotos. From day one, the Zindas intended to create a family environment, not only to attract customers but also to build a legacy. Its always been my dream that we can keep this going, that it would stay in the family, Fred said. But he didnt want to drive [his daughters] into it. They did their own thing, Carol said. When they were ready they joined the family business. We grew up in it, Jodi said. As teens, she and her sister worked their way through the ranks, from dishwasher to food prep to waitressing. Now, the familys third generation has joined the Jotos team. Jodis 16-year-old daughter, Harley, recently started working as a waitress. Shes the first of the grandchildren to work for Jotos, but Fred hopes she isnt the last. I hope the legacy keeps going, he said.Giving backThe Zindas embraced their new home immediately, giving back to the community from the very beginning. When the first location opened in 1974, they sponsored Jimmy Cope, a legendary local racecar driver who competed at Sunshine Speedway. Tori and Jodi attended Sacred Heart Catholic School, and the restaurant donated pizzas to school functions, such as its Fall Festival. Everyone in Pinellas Park knew us because of those two things, Fred said. In Seminole, they donated food, time and money to the local schools, including Seminole High School and Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks, and various youth sports leagues. Jotos has also raised over $300,000 for All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg. In 1999, Brent and Tori had a daughter, Rachel. Born prematurely, Rachel was only with us for five days, Jodi said. Despite the tragedy, the family was so impressed by the care received at ACH, that it created the Dough for the Kids Golf Classic in 2004. Held annually in May, this years tournament marks its 10th anniversary.Celebrating 40 yearsJotos will host a weekend of special events at its Seminole restaurant to celebrate its 40th anniversary. On Saturday, Jan. 25, former employees are invited back to catch up and reminisce, while Sunday, Jan. 26 is a customer appreciation day featuring live music, childrens activities, a prize wheel and a clown, Jodi said. I cant believe its been 40 years, Carol said. It really is a milestone for mom and pops to last in todays world. For more information, visit www.jotospizza.com.

Thats why were taking the time and effort to run this color test, so that we can be sure ads will have just the right shades of purple: not too dark, not too light. Its little things like this that set us apart from other publications.We Care 48/90/10/55 48/90/10/25 48/90/10/40 50/100/0/35 48/90/10/30 50/100/0/25 payment or a hearing request. The amendment allows for issuing of an ordinance violation, after a show-cause hearing, when people dont pay the fine or request a hearing. The amendment also removes the $20 fee to request a hearing to dispute a fine. People would be charged only if they cancel a hearing or request to continue a hearing without notice. The fee structure was changed for registered and nonregistered alarm-owners. Those registered will pay $30 for a third false alarm, down from $74. The fee for four false alarms in one year remains at $100. The fine for five false alarms is reduced by $50 down to $200; six drops $50 as well, down to $250 and more than seven false alarms will cost $300 each. Unregistered alarm-owners will pay $80 for the first false alarm, $160 for the second one, down $40 from the original fee schedule. The third false alarm would cost $320, up from $250, and the fine for four or more is $500.Alcohol in M-1 zonesPinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala told commissioners that the growing popularity of craft beer was behind a proposed change to the land development code to allow dispensing of alcohol in an M-1 (light manufacturing and industry) zoning district. Commissioners approved the amendment during its second and final public hearing. The first hearing was Jan. 14. Commission Chair Karen Seel pointed out that the current code allowed retail sales; however, dispensing of alcohol was allowed only in areas zoned C-1, neighborhood commercial district; C-2, general retail commercial and limited services district; C-3, commercial, wholesale warehousing & support district; and IPD, industrial planned development district. According to a staff report, amending Pinellas Countys code to allow dispensing of alcohol in an M-1 district is consistent with adjacent communities in the county that allow for on-site dispensing and consumption for craft beers in industrial areas.Unanticipated fund balance appropriatedJustice and Consumer Services will receive an additional $270,310 for its Justice Coordination Program, thanks to the recovery of disputed charges from the state regarding past payments to the shared county/state juvenile trust fund. The additional money will help fund an electronic monitoring pilot program designed to reduce juvenile detention days and truancy, implement a pilot mentoring and re-entry support program to reduce recidivism rates and other activities.Countywide Planning AuthoritySitting as the Countywide Planning Authority, commissioners unanimously approved three of four Countywide Future Land Use Plan amendments. The first case was an amendment on property at 3211 Alt. U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor for a change from residential urban to residential/office general. The second was for a change from residential low to residential urban for 0.4 acre of land at 1569 and 1571 Sunset Point Road in Clearwater. The third amendment involved 9.8 acres at 5465 126th Ave. N. for a change from industrial general to industrial limited. Commissioners denied a request from the city of Safety Harbor to change zoning on 34.6 acres. The amendment would remove the industrial designation from a portion of the property. The final public hearing of the day was the first for a proposed ordinance amending the countywide rules for preservation of industrial land. The second public hearing is scheduled for Jan. 28, 6 p.m., at the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St. ALARM ORDINANCE, from page 1A Here and There Here and ThereHolocaust remembrance event SEMINOLE A Holocaust remembrance event, Never Again! will be held on Monday, Jan. 27, 7 p.m. in the Digital Auditorium, University Partnership Building, St. Petersburg College, Seminole Campus.In addition to student readings and candle lighting, Rabbi David Weizman of the Congregation Beth Shalom, Clearwater, and Rev.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerAs we continue into the New Year with resolutions and good intentions, let me suggest exactly what our Comfort Keepers ad states when searching for caregivers. It begins with Share Your Heart! There are millions of seniors out there longing for company, someone to chat with about their past experiences and someone to care about their future. This is your opportunity to Share you Heart! There is vulnerability in the elderly often brought on by feeling less worthy as they once felt when they were still involved in a career, enjoying times with siblings, traveling with a spouse and basically maintaining their independence. Once they experience the loss of a lifetime career and the loss of loved ones, they may also lose their sense of purpose for everyday living. Think of at least one elderly person that you know and how you may help them achieve purpose in life once again. Involve them in your life. How can you encourage them today to maintain relationships and enjoy what they find appealing as an individual? Shut-in seniors are at a higher risk of depression and loneliness due to their inability to get out into the public on their own. Encourage them to attend Senior centers which provide the opportunities for friendships and activities for them to enjoy. Call them on a regular basis and suggest different volunteering opportunities available to them. Several years ago, Comfort Keepers piloted a program called Interactive Caregiving which has proven that active and mentally stimulated seniors enjoy a better quality of life and physical well being. Transforming daily activities into interactive activities helps keep people strong, improve health and outlook on life, and reduce the risks for injury, depression, and symptoms of dementia. Interactive Caregiving is the unique way our Comfort Keepers deliver care to our clients. It centers on four interrelated aspects engagement of the mind, an active body, proper nutrition, and safety. What I observe often is that the elderly need to know that they are still important and needed. Enjoying camaraderie with others does not fade with time. The elderly love to share stories and appreciate others that are truly listening. They have so much wisdom to offer and truly know the value of life. Lets honor the elderly, encourage and support them to continue to enjoy their lives with purpose. It is not length of life, but depth of life. -Ralph Waldo Emerson012314Maintaining Lifes Purpose 012314 5.00% TAX-FREE* Dallas/Fort Worth TX International Airport Robert J.

County 7A Seminole Beacon, January 23, 2014 012314 10 Questions to Ask Before You Hire a Real Estate AgentSEMINOLE-LARGO Not all real estate agents are the same. If you decide to seek the help of an agent when selling or buying your home, you need some good information before you make any moves. Picking the right agent is one of those critical issues that can cost or save you thousands of dollars. There are very specific questions you should be asking to ensure that you get the best representation of your needs. Many agents would prefer that you dont ask these questions, because the knowledge youll gain from their honest answers will give you a very good idea about what outcome you can expect from using this agent. And lets face it-in real estate, as in life-not all things are created equal. Hiring a real estate agent is just like any hiring process-with you on the bosss side of the desk. Buying or selling a home is a major financial action, probably the biggest you will ever take. Its critical that you make the right decision about who will handle it. To help homeowners do a better job of choosing an agent to represent them, industry experts have prepared a FREE Special Report entitled Questions You Must Ask When Interviewing an Agent. This report identifies 10 critical questions that will help you make an accurate prediction of how good a job this agent will do for you.

Not intended to solicit properties currently listed. Copyright 2014012314 Theres a $900 million deficit to overcome, she said. Biggert-Water Insurance Reform Act of 2012 was put into place to try to deal with the debt amassed starting with Hurricane Katrina and continuing through Superstorm Sandy. Sen. Bill Nelson spoke on the Senate floor Jan. 15 and urged his colleagues to take up and pass legislation that would give millions of consumers relief from the dramatic flood insurance rate hikes that began Oct. 1, according to an email from the senators office. Nelson said a provision in the pending budget bill would cover less than a quarter of all the flood insurance policies being affected by the huge rate hikes, and thats why we need to move forward with passing the broad bipartisan bill that will delay these rate hikes for several years Congress has since passed the budget bill. While it includes some relief from the effects of flood insurance reform, it does nothing for commercial property, according to an update from Robin Sollie, executive director of Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce. In an email sent out Jan. 17, Sollie said the bill wouldnt help properties that have already received higher insurance bills, nor will it help anyone trying to buy or sell a home. The relief doesnt apply to homes that are now considered flood prone due to FEMAs new maps. She concurs with Nelson that only about a quarter of polices would be effected. Meanwhile, state lawmakers continue to talk about private flood insurance for Floridians. Rep. Larry Aherns recently filed a bill that lays the framework for implementing a private insurance program. Commissioner Susan Latvala voiced concern about private flood insurance in Florida, which she said could make people pull out of the federal program, further increasing costs of policies with fewer people paying into the federal program. County Administrator Bob LaSala pointed out that property owners could not be refused flood insurance under the government program, but private insurance companies could refuse to write policies, then property owners would have no choice but to use the government program. Latvala advocates doing more to mitigate flood damage. LaSala said the county is looking for ways to improve its rating, which would affect the cost of insurance for its citizens. Latvala suggested that residents might be willing to pay a tax if the money would be spent to mitigate flood risk and lower insurance rates. Commissioner John Morroni sold his home in Feathersound in December. He said the insurance premium went up from $600 to more than $4,000 for the homeowner, which was almost a deal-breaker. He said people werent even interested in looking at waterfront property right now unless they were wealthy. All they want is high and dry property, he said.

PETERSBURG Vietnam veteran and local artist Mike Willis was recently honored by the Pinellas County Veterans Service Office. Willis attends the Bay Pines Veterans art therapy group and volunteered to create a painting, which represented pride and patriotism. Sometimes ideas come through based upon how my week has gone and is a way of me bringing out those emotions and creativity, said Willis. I had never worked on a piece this large so this was a real challenge. After starting the project, Willis said, Even the size of the canvas could not contain all of the thoughts and emotions that went into this. I wanted to get it just right as a memorial to my fellow servicemen and women. This was truly a work of the heart. The painting is displayed in the Health and Community/Veterans Services offices in St. Petersburg.

With more than 750,000 twinkling LED lights the largest display to date illuminating 30 acres of plantings, pathways and waterways, the Holiday Lights in the Gardens event has become a tradition. Attendance has been steadily growing over the years with more than 60,000 visiting the displays during the events 11th anniversary in 2011 an increase of nearly 18,000 from 2010. In 2012, 77,000 enjoyed the display. An additional purpose of the Holiday Lights in the Gardens is to raise funds to support the Florida Botanical Gardens. The Foundation plans to develop and support an array of projects, including expansion and renovation of the west gardens surrounding the Pinellas County Extension building, enhancement and expansion of the childrens trail, installation of boardwalks through the wetlands, development of a GIS system to identify and record plants and memorials, artistic additions to the gardens and another magical Holiday Lights in the Gardens event next year.

The program is a strategic investment that couples leadership training with a $200,000 unrestricted grant for high-performing nonprofits that have made a significant impact addressing needs related to community development, critical needs or workforce development and education. Nonprofit leaders gain valuable skills and apply funding where it is most needed for maximum local impact. Feeding America Tampa Bay also received this award last month. We recognize the important role Pinellas Education Foundation plays in supporting the education system to give all students the opportunity to be successful and pursue their career and education goals, said Bill Goede in a press release. Goede is Tampa Bay market president, Bank of America. The leadership training and funding will not only deepen its impact today but sustain its mission and services over time. Pinellas Education Foundation is a coalition of business and community leaders working together to improve the quality of public education. The foundation is enhancing educational opportunities in Pinellas County Schools through scholarships, grants, teacher recognition, public education reform advocacy and the creation of sustainable programs to improve student and teacher performance. Pinellas Education Foundation will use funding from the Neighborhood Builders award to build Future Plans, a preventative approach program that will better prepare students for post-secondary education. The pilot program is a self-administered, career guidance program aimed at helping high school students and young adults discover their aptitudes and interests. Its because of partners like Bank of America that we are able to accomplish our mission to improve and enhance educational opportunities in Pinellas County Schools, said Jim Myers, chairman of Pinellas Education Foundation. Were grateful that Bank of America has an incredible commitment to education and the vision to see the critical importance of helping the next generation of job creators and workers find successful pathways to jobs in demand.Special Kids Academy to open second schoolST.

PETERSBURG The USF St. Petersburg Honors Program is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a special lecture series that reflects the theme of the anniversary, Celebrate the Liberal Arts. Dennis Thompson, Ph.D., the Alfred North Whitehead Professor of Political Philosophy Emeritus at Harvard University, will discuss Science, Ethics and Democracy on Thursday, Jan. 23, 4 p.m., at the University Student Center Ballroom. The lecture is free and open to the public. Nabil Matar, Ph.D., the Presidential Professor of Arts & Humanities at the University of Minnesota, will discuss The Arabic Legacy in Western Thought on Monday, March 3, 3:30 p.m., at the University Student Center Ballroom. The lecture is free and open to the public. The liberal arts are at the core of the Honors Program but there is a lot of confusion about what that means, said Thomas Smith, Ph.D., in a press release. Smith is the Honors Program director and associate professor of government and international affairs. The liberal arts are about developing critical thinking and fostering our capacities for reason, judgment and scientific inquiry. They provide the intellectual tools to be engaged citizens. Both speakers will discuss issues that go to the heart of what the liberal arts are all about, Smith said. Thompson, the author of eight books and founding director of the Harvard University Center for Ethics, will underscore the importance for scientists to understand the ethical implications of their work. Matar will explore the transmission of ideas from the Arab world into western thought. This spring lecture series underscores an important part of the mission of the Honors Program at USF St. Petersburg, said Frank Biafora, Ph.D., dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. It brings together nationally recognized thought leaders discussing provocative topics that will both challenge and enlighten our students and the public. The Honors Program will also present the Second Annual St. Petersburg Conference on International Affairs Feb. 13-15 at the University Student Center Ballroom. The conference, featuring 15 panels of distinguished experts from across the country discussing the critical international issues of the day, is free and open to the public. Complimentary parking for the Honors Program events will be available at the USFSP parking garage, 260 Fifth Ave. S. For information, call 8734872. Visit www.usfsp.edu/academic-programs/hon ors/.

As with the weather right now, if we do not like the dolphin behavior of the moment, we wait. It will change even when we do like it very much.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Send her an email email@example.com orvisit her website www.goodnaturedstatistics.com.NOAA advises anyone who sees a stranded dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico to call 877-942-5343 or 877-433-8299.Like the weather right now? Take your pick. Calm or windy. Warm or cold. Cloudy or clear. If you do not like it, wait. It will change. Like the weather right now, it is the same way at sea with dolphins. Our winter surveys of the study area, which we monitor under federal permit for the government, are the least predictable. We may glide across still seas with summers glorious abundance and find dolphins by the dozen. We may totter and lurch across choppy seas only to glimpse a singleton rushing away. It has long been my impression that, ceteris paribus, the dolphins overall energy level matches that of the seas. I have never tested this impression against the database. Perhaps my belief is skewed by the vividness of calm dolphins on calm seas. They will take your breath away, as they did recently. It was just two days before frigid cold assaulted our nation, power grids and furnaces yet the skies were crystal clear, the day cheerfully warm and the waters as still as they get. All three dolphin groups were relaxed, almost tranquil. Maybe they were just full. Perhaps food had been plentiful in the dark nights of that new moon. Perhaps it had been easier to catch, for the estuary had been abnormally shallow as if a celestial someone had pulled a plug until half of its water had drained away. Or do they change the outlook with the weather? First, we found an unruffled trio of teens rounding a watery bend (young bull buddies Oyster and VC, female Babyface). We know of another long-term teen trio of the same composition, two males and a female. Because as a rule the composition of dolphin groups varies remarkably (a social organization called fission-fusion), teen trios are intriguing as a potential pattern. I thought about the unwritten book of teenage dolphin behavior. Is the transition from dependent calf to mature adult in the worlds most intelligent animal as variable as other aspects of their behavior? Or are there unsuspected regularities, such as mom dolphins who are friends giving rise to calves who also grow up to be friends? Certainly one regularity is safety in numbers whilst swimming naked all night with sharks. All three teens showed suspect toothrakes, thought to come from toothed creatures that are not dolphins. Whatever happened, Babyface took the brunt of it. She had a frightening variety of suspect toothrakes compared to her schoolmates. But all bore the same ominous signs. Had they taken on the culprit collectively? The quintet we found next showed the same composed companionability. Bull Hi W Ski heaved his muscled body at the surface and greeted us with three chuffs, rough exhalations that combine the sounds of a hoarse cough and wheezy sneeze. He and his bull buddy Scrapefin slid over and rolled on their sides to peer at us through divinely still waters, images that the camera struggled but ultimately failed to capture. Scrapefin chomped his jaws lightly now and again. He was holding something in his mouth. Dolphins often manipulate objects when feeling sociable. He went to demonstrate that dolphins can handle animate objects with great gentleness, encasing them in a terrifying cage of white teeth but releasing them unharmed to escape in great haste (an image that the camera did capture). I wondered if dolphins ever hold a tiny sea creature in their mouth just to feel it wiggling, as we did with moths in cupped hands as kids. Nearby, Valiant, her son Vidalia and adult female Bet swam close together and coordinated their movements faithfully. Winter-born 3-year-old Vidalia is working on weaning. He spent the day before in riotous relations with his older brother VC and pal Oyster, rocketing around as if nippy seas were inconsequential. Capt. John Heidemann pointed out that however dolphins conceptualize the notion of sibling, older brother VC knows that Vidalia is his brother. But does younger brother Vidalia know that VC is his (older) brother? Hardly riotous that day, Vidalia paced the lady dolphins perfectly. All three used a poetic style of synchronized surfacing, rising at 45-degree angles with bodies straight as arrows to breathe one after the other. Their faces slowly materialized out of the green gloom, their dark eyes unblinking until hitting the air. Two miles south, the final group meandered with the same cool synchrony. Teen females Qball and Trix swam with adult female Split. Split looks wonderful, her gray coat clean and unblemished. Qball weaned in stages this fall. She stayed with mom Q and new sibling Qody for four months but recently took the first steps of independence. Last week, she zoomed around with other teens, including the days trio of Oyster, VC and Babyface. With schoolmates, she used the poetic style of synchronized surfacing, aiming upwards with body straight as an arrow as she rose to breathe, her face slowly materializing out of the green gloom and her By ANN WEAVEROne day Scrapefin demonstrated that dolphins can handle tiny sea creatures with great gentleness and release them unharmed.

PETERSBURG Il Ritorno, a locallyowned modern Italian restaurant, will host its grand opening ceremony Thursday, Jan. 30, 5 p.m., at 449 Central Ave. David Lazer Benstock, owner and executive chef at Il Ritorno, has returned to his hometown of St. Petersburg to bring a taste of fresh Italian cuisine to the community. The grand opening will feature complimentary appetizers, champagne and giveaways. Due to limited space, a reservation is suggested and can be made by calling 897-5900. After studying culinary arts at Johnson and Wales University in Colorado, Benstock went on to open Wolfgang Pucks Spago in Colorado, worked at Michelin Star restaurant The Modern in New York City, and worked for some time in Venice, Italy. As he traveled throughout Europe, training under some of the best chefs in the world and honing his skills into an art form, Benstock found a passion for Italian culture and cuisine. This caused him to realize the importance of working with fresh, local ingredients a concept he longed to pursue. Upon his return from Italy, Benstock worked at Scarpetta in Miami and, most recently, Boca in Tampa. St. Pete has always held a special place in my heart, said Benstock in a press release. I always knew that I would come back some day to open up my dream restaurant in my hometown, and it finally happened. Its good to be home.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, January 23, 2014Clarence Aaron described his time in federal prison serving life without parole for a firsttime nonviolent drug conviction as a walking death sentence on his head. Before President Barack Obama commuted his sentence last month, Aaron faced a longer sentence than some fellow inmates with multiple felonies even murder. Aaron was hardly the only nonviolent offender sentenced to life without parole. Last year, the American Civil Liberties Union reported that more than 2,000 federal inmates were serving life without parole for nonviolent offenses. How can a nonviolent first-time offender be sentenced to life without parole? Their biggest mistake, after their crimes, was not pleading guilty. Prosecutors give drug defendants a so-called choice. In the most egregious cases, the choice can be to plead guilty to 10 years or risk life without parole by going to trial, Human Rights Watch adviser Jamie Fellner says. She has a term for it: the trial penalty, which can deliver longer time than drug dealing itself. When a case goes to trial, the prosecutor gets to pick the sentence by choosing the amount of drugs for which a defendant is charged. A federal judge had to sentence Aaron to life because he was convicted of conspiracy to traffic 23 kilograms of crack and powder cocaine. The crazy part is that prosecutors got to 23 kilograms by charging Aaron for a 9-kilogram deal that did happen and a 15-kilogram deal that did not. The career dealers knew how to game the system. Their sentences were reduced because they testified against Aaron. The National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys is fighting back against the bad press on federal mandatory minimums. The system, prosecutors argue, protects the public from the old days when a defendants sentence depended on which judge heard the case. Now the guilty know that some prison time is unavoidable. Georgetown University Law Center professor Bill Otis, a former federal prosecutor, reminded me that every system, every country, has its sentencing anomalies. The federal system at least has four checks plea bargains, a safety valve that allows judges to reduce the punishment for some low-level defendants, defendants ability to reduce their penalty by testifying against others, and the presidential pardon power that commuted Aarons life sentence. I should add that Otis doesnt see drug dealing as nonviolent, not when an addict could die of an overdose. I would expect to agree with everything Otis said. No system is perfect. Plea bargains benefit both law enforcement and defendants. The federal safety valve gives judges some discretion. Guilty parties can reduce their sentences by cooperating with authorities. If all else fails, there is the presidential pardon. Except: The minimum sentence for a nonviolent offense should not be life without parole, basically the same as the maximum sentence. Federal prosecutors want the public to trust them even when they do nothing to curb their own excesses. No reasonable person would assert that there is a public interest in putting young, low-level, nonviolent offenders, with or without prior convictions, behind bars until they die. If the Department of Justice had demonstrated any kind of commitment to fixing its excesses, the public could trust prosecutors. Instead, the prosecutorial-industrial complex has circled the wagons and actually defends these medieval punishments. Floridas Stephanie George was one of the other seven recipients of a presidential commutation last month. Like Aaron, who told me he was guilty of a big crime, George made some huge mistakes. In 1996, authorities searched her house and found $14,000 and 500 grams of her boyfriends cocaine stash in her attic. Because George had two prior felonies for selling $40 and $120 worth of crack, which were counted as separate felonies this 26-year-old woman was sentenced to life without parole. When The Washington Post praised Obama for showing mercy toward a mother serving a life sentence for stashing her boyfriends drugs, the NAAUSA took offense. President Robert Gay Guthrie chided the editorial board for not recognizing that Georges prior convictions caused her to be considered a career criminal with a criminal history at the highest level under the federal sentencing guidelines. Federal law, as mandated by Congress, caused her drug distribution conviction, her third, to trigger a life sentence. Thats why Congress should change the law.Email Debra J. Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org.The execution of Thomas Knight recently is a textbook case for why Floridas dysfunctional death penalty should be scrapped. Here was a man whose guilt was never in doubt, whose crimes were cold-blooded, whose attitude remained remorseless and often defiant yet the system took nearly 40 years to close the book. In South Florida, Knight will be remembered for abducting and killing a Bay Harbor Islands couple, Sydney and Lillian Gans, in 1974. After a frantic manhunt, he was found hiding in the mud with the rifle used in the crime, and $50,000 cash that hed forced Gans to withdraw from a bank. Ironically, Knight wasnt executed for those murders. In 1980 he fatally stabbed prison guard Richard Burke with a sharpened spoon, and it was that homicide that finally delivered him to the death chamber for a lethal injection. His case had dragged on so long that last year a federal appeals court lamented: To learn about the gridlock and inefficiency of death penalty litigation, look no further than this appeal. The daughter of Sydney and Lillian Gans didnt attend Knights execution because of poor health. At 73, she is now older than her parents were when they were slain. For decades, the dogged maneuvering and serial delays in capital cases have frustrated prosecutors and police, and brought more misery to the victims relatives. There is no workable solution except to repeal the death penalty and replace it with mandatory life sentences. Because appealing a capital case involves both state and federal courts, it cant simply be expedited by legislation. And because people do get wrongly convicted as organizations such as the Innocence Project have demonstrated judges must be cautious and thorough. Convicted of a rape and murder in 1986, Florida Death Row inmate Frankie Lee Smith was exonerated by DNA evidence in December 2000. It was too late. Smith had died of cancer 11 months earlier in prison. For obvious reasons, defense lawyers in death cases strategize to stall, stall and then stall some more. Their job is to keep their clients alive as long as possible. Florida fought 10 years to execute the notorious Ted Bundy, at a cost to taxpayers of about $5 million. Theres no calculation as to how much was spent litigating the case of Thomas Knight, who received his first death sentence in 1976, but you can be certain it was a fortune. Set aside for a moment the moral and religious objections to capital punishment, and the questions about its disproportionate application to minorities. Consider the statute strictly as an expensive, endless drain of legal resources. Since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, Florida has averaged slightly more than two executions a year while adding about 12 new residents annually to Death Row. You can do the dismal math in your head. Today 396 men and five women live on Floridas Death Row, and most (if not all) have attorneys working on appeals. The pace could never be described as swift. Knight was no anomaly; many capital cases have been slogging along since the mid-1970s. One of the most infamous is that of James Rose, a house painter convicted of snatching his ex-girlfriends 8-year-old daughter from a Hollywood bowling alley, then killing the girl and dumping her nude body in a canal. The shocking crime happened in October 1976, when Rose was 30 years old. Last month he turned 68, and he continues to file appeals. Multiply his paperwork by 400 and thats what faces the state. On both sides of each marathon case, taxpayers usually get stuck with the legal bills. That wont change, either, unless somebody rips up the Constitution. However richly a killer like Thomas Knight deserved to die for his crimes, the exorbitant cost of executing him is impossible to justify at a time when the courts are understaffed, underfunded and swamped. It would be vastly more economical and efficient to give up on capital punishment and impose mandatory life sentences, as 18 states already do. At this point a death sentence is practically a de facto life sentence, anyway, given the longevity of the appeals process. By the time its over, families of the victims are as wrung out as they are relieved. The day before Knight was put to death, another Death Row veteran named Robert Patten departed without fanfare. Many wont remember who he was, but back in 1981 he shot dead a young Miami police officer named Nathaniel Broom. Patten was first sentenced to die in 1985, appealed, was resentenced to die in 1989, and of course continued to appeal. Twenty-five long years later, he wasnt even executed by the state. Prison officials said he died of natural causes, which isnt uncommon on Death Row due to the aging inmate population. Its time for Florida to get out of the costly execution business, and let cancer and clogged arteries do what the justice system cant.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Correct the flaws with sentencingLETTERSA Democrats detour from critical issuesEditor: While viewing the cartoon reprinted from the Arkansas Democrat Gazette that depicts Governor Christie in his limo in a traffic jam coming up to a sign that says White House exit, I realized what gets a Democrats attention. Its not an administration that abandoned Americans in Benghazi or sells guns to foreign drug cartels or fails to police our borders from illegal entry or lies outright about a myriad of issues. Its gridlock! Carl Muller Indian Rocks Beach A sad state of affairsEditor: I read recently that the mayor of Largo has said that the Largo Cultural Center is only available to cultural events that produce a profit for the city. It seems that in Largo the only concern is for the bottom line and not the cultural advancement of its citizens. When a cultural activity such as the lady who offered to present a Mexican cultural program for free was rejected on the basis of not producing enough revenue, the name of the center should be changed to The Largo Center For The Rich And Famous. What a sad state of affairs when everything in this country is based on the profit motive. Stefano Longinotti Largo Its again time for the Winter Olympics, and my spirits are rising. They do that because of the luge. Thats an Olympics sport in which one or two possibly insane persons lie face up on a small sled and slide down an icy track at speeds approaching 90 mph or death, whichever comes first. Every two years when I watch the Winter Olympics on television and see the luge competition, Im filled with immense gratitude that I am not aboard a luge. If I ever fall into a depression, Ill ask my doctor to show me films of the luge, and Ill immediately be cured. Even today, when I feel down, I tell myself, At least youre not on a luge. Oddly enough, I like the sound of the word luge. I think its pronounced loodgsh or maybe looshz. Nice and mushy, like being kissed by a woman with a mouthful of ice cream. The word luge comes from an obscure language and means small sled. Thats enough lugery, for now. As Im sure you know, the 2014 Winter Olympics will start soon in a city were all familiar with, the Black Sea port of Sochi, Russia. Its nickname is The Summer Capital of Russia, which gives rise to the question, Why stage winter sports in a summer playground? The apparent answer is that for two months a year, Sochi gets cold enough to permit Russia to spend billions of rubles to build Olympic ice rinks, ski slopes and luge runs. Also, to hire a gazillion security guards to prevent nasty tricks by anti-Russia terrorists from Chechnya, Faloopistan and other advanced civilizations of that region. Controversy has already arisen for the Olympics, even before they start. As I write this, on Jan. 15, howls of distress have erupted because an elite ice-skating committee has mysteriously awarded a trip to Sochi to a female ice skater even though she fell flat on her tush twice during a crucial recent performance. The committee thereby ousted the Sochi hopes of another female skater whose performance was judged 10 points better than perfect. Another question: can an Olympics visitor who loves sushi find sushi in Sochi? I did some research, and the answer is yes. Sochi is 990 miles south of Moscow. Its history goes back thousands of years. Its present population is 415,000, but it was a small city until the 1930s, when Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin said, Da vilna ke noshkamini pucht! (Lets beef up this burg!). And, lo, new hotels, parks, malls and Dunkin Donuts stands suddenly appeared. Today Sochi is much like Manhattan, in that few of the cab drivers speak English and tend to overcharge their passengers. Sochi has 4 million visitors each year, but only 3 percent come from outside Russia. Humidity is high, but the sun shines 300 days each year, by order of President Putin. The city contains a hundred ethnic groups; the vast majority are Orthodox Christians. None of this information answers the question Why does the Olympic Committee give out gold, silver and bronze medals to the best athletes? At the end of each event, why doesnt the head honcho simply say, Yall did just great! and let everyone go home happy? Also, why the nationalistic score cards? So far, the USA has won six golds, and China only four, which means the world is safe for democracy for another two years. Yippee! One possible answer is international status-seeking. Another is money. In this day and age, big sports means big bucks for the big boys who run things. With millions of TV viewers looking on, advertisers lay out small fortunes for every 30-second commercial spot. Sizeable endorsement payoffs can go to the athletes who win gold in the major events such as figure skating and ski jumping. But a less cynical view of the Olympics says they are held because around the world are thousands of dedicated athletes whose minds are dominated by these thoughts: How good can I get? What would it feel like to stand on up there with a medal around my neck while they play my national anthem? As a congenitally lazy man, I cant begin to imagine the years of discipline and sacrifice Olympic-class candidates must endure on their long, lonely trip to the high ground. I think the biggest payoff for any Olympics contestant, win or lose, must surely be the inner voice that whispers, You did it, pal. You didnt quit. You made it to the Big Show, and you gave it your best shot. What a lovely sound to carry with you for the rest of your life.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

PETERSBURG The U.S. Coast Guard assisted four boaters suffering from hypothermia early Thursday morning when their vessel ran into trouble north of Pass-A-Grille. A person aboard the vessel contacted Sector St. Petersburg at 11 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 15, via VHF-FM channel 16 radio reporting he and three other boaters aboard a 17-foot recreational vessel were hypothermic, running out of fuel and needed assistance. While gathering information, the operator was not able to spell his last name, said Richard Hutchinson, a watchstander at the sector. We then launched a boatcrew from Station St. Petersburg to the scene. Unable to continue to their destination due to heavy seas and running low on fuel the distressed boaters moored their vessel to a private dock near Tierra Verde High and Dry Marina. The Coast Guard requested emergency medical services to rendezvous to the scene and evaluate all people aboard. It is extremely important to monitor the weather prior to getting underway, said Hutchinson. Minor distress situations turn severe in minutes when a boater forgets to check the weather prior to departing. All boaters were treated and released by emergency responders and the Coast Guard towed the vessel to Tierra Verde High and Dry Marina at 2:03 a.m.Seminole 12-year-old hit by carSEMINOLE A 12-year-old girl was transported to Bayfront Medical Center in critical condition Thursday afternoon after being hit by a car on 131st Street south of 84th Terrace in Seminole. According to a report from Florida Highway Patrol, Lyght L. Hussey, 37, of Seminole was driving a 2003 Honda SUV southbound on 131st Street in the outside lane south of 84th Terrace about 4:28 p.m. Leah Martin, also of Seminole, was attempting to cross the road at a marked crosswalk leading to Seminole High School. Martin entered the path of Husseys vehicle, which struck the girl. The SUV traveled onto the right shoulder of the roadway and Martin was pinned under the vehicle. Charges were pending.Seminole man arrested in $6 million Ponzi schemeSEMINOLE The Florida Department of Law Enforcement Tampa Bay Regional Operations Center arrested a Seminole man Jan. 16 in a $6 million Ponzi scheme. David George Dreslin, 54, was charged with racketeering, conspiracy to engage in a pattern of racketeering activity, three counts of sale of an unregistered security, three counts of sale of a security by an unregistered dealer, security fraud and organized fraud. Dreslin turned himself into the Pinellas County Jail Thursday afternoon. Bond was set at $920,000. This was a joint investigation with the Office of Financial Regulation and FDLE. Attorney General Pam Bondis Office of Statewide Prosecution will prosecute the case. According to a press release, the investigation revealed that Dreslin was engaged in a Ponzi type scheme, soliciting investors for various real estate projects. Dreslin, an accountant, would convince his clients to purchase shares or units in a variety of real estate development projects promising large returns in a short period of time. Victims of this scheme lost their hard-earned savings to someone who was looking to make a quick dollar through an illegal operation, Bondi said. Because of strong partnerships among my Office of Statewide Prosecution, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Office of Financial Regulation, the defendant is behind bars, and my office will aggressively prosecute this case. Agents found Dreslin did not own all of the real estate he sold to his clients and also used their investments as personal income or to payout other investors. Agents believe investors lost over $6 million in the scheme. FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey said, Dreslins victims were convinced to liquidate their retirement accounts and in some instances cash-out the equity of their homes. For many victims, the scam resulted in the loss of their life-savings. The OFR is committed to protecting the citizens of Florida and appreciate the efforts of our partners in law enforcement to bring justice to those who seek to separate Floridians from their hard earned dollars, said OFR Commissioner Drew J. Breakspear. We encourage all potential investors to research any financial product fully and to take measures to protect themselves. The investigation is ongoing and there will be additional arrests, according to the FDLE. Deputies looking for female arsonistLEALMAN Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies are looking for a woman who allegedly poured lighter fluid on her ex-boyfriend before setting a fire in his mothers apartment in Lealman late Friday afternoon. According to deputies, Oscar B. Mitchell, 36, and Kamekia D. Russell, 36, met at a convenience store near the apartment Jan. 17. Mitchell reportedly borrowed some money from Russell some time ago, and Russell wanted him to pay back the money. When Mitchell left the convenience store, Russell reportedly followed him back to his mothers home in the Lakeside Terraces Apartment Complex. She then followed him to the second floor and followed him inside the apartment where she allegedly sprayed him with lighter fluid. He then ran out of the apartment. Russell reportedly remained inside the apartment where she allegedly set fire to a curtain. A small sofa cushion also caught fire. After Mitchell saw Russell leave the apartment, he ran back inside and put out the fire.Oldsmar murder suspect arrested in TennesseeAuthorities in Sevier County Tennessee arrested an Oldsmar man Jan. 16 wanted in connection with the murder of his girlfriend. James Brian Quilliams was charged with first-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend Teresa Sue Compton, 48. According to Pinellas County sheriffs detectives, Quilliams slashed and stabbed Compton multiple times with a sword. He was taken into custody just after midnight Jan. 16 after he was found in a cabin in Wears Valley, Tenn. Pinellas County Sheriffs Office began investigating the homicide after deputies were called to the couples home on Stoneview Circle in Oldsmar about 4:46 p.m. Jan. 13. Deputies were advised that blood had been observed in the driveway and neighbors were concerned about the welfare of the homeowners. Upon entering the home, deputies found that the living room floor was covered in blood. After further search of the home, they discovered Compton deceased in the garage. Deputies retreated and contacted detectives from the sheriffs robbery/homicide Unit, who began their investigation. Detectives have put together the following timeline of events. Neighbors said they saw Quilliams sitting in his car in front of the home between 8 and 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12, and described his demeanor as weird. Between 11 p.m. and midnight, neighbors reported they heard the couple arguing. Neighbor said arguing between the couple was not unusual. Detectives say at 4:21 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 13, Quilliams booked a flight to Knoxville, Tenn. on Allegiant Airlines out of St. Pete Clearwater Airport. At 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. that day, neighbors reported seeing Quilliams in the driveway of the Oldsmar residence. At 3:15 p.m., Quilliams checked his baggage in at St. Pete Clearwater Airport. Detectives said Quilliams arrived in Knoxville at 8:50 p.m. and taken by a friend to a motel in Pigeon Forge. At 5 a.m. Jan. 14, Quilliams ex-wife Kristi Quilliams was arrested for DUI by Pigeon Forge Police Department. When asked if they should call her husband to pick up her vehicle, Kristi Williams told officers her husband would not come to get the vehicle as he was on the run after killing a woman in Pinellas County. She also told officers that she had dropped him off at the Smokey Mountains National Park. Through further investigation and in coordination with the Sevier County Sheriffs Office, detectives learned that Quilliams might be in a cabin in the 3100 block of Valley Home Way in Wears Valley in Tennessee. Quilliams was located and taken into custody in the early morning hours without further incident by the U.S. Marshalls Service. A sword believed to be the murder weapon was located and in the victims home in Oldsmar. Quilliams vehicle, a 2001 Black Nissan Ex-Terra located at the St. Pete Clearwater Airport, is being processed. Detectives said Compton and Quilliams had been arguing over text messages sent by Quilliams to his ex-wife, Kristi Quilliams. David George Dreslin James Brian Quilliams

A unique and imaginative theater piece, Love Letters, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is a charming, poignant play centering on just two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. Using the epistolary form sometimes found in novels, they sit side by side at tables and read the notes, letters and cards in which they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats that have passed between them throughout their separated lives. Don Williams, Friday, Jan. 24, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $65. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. They came to call Don Williams the Gentle Giant in the decades he was a dominating country hit maker, recording hits like Good Ole Boys Like Me and Til The Rivers Run Dry. He earned his nickname because of his unique blend of commanding presence and that laid-back, easy style that has appealed to adult men and women alike cutting across national and genre boundaries. If those personal and musical qualities stood out strongly across the 1970s, the s and the s, they are all the more distinctive in 2012, when so many country and pop records seem to work as check-off lists of somebodys idea of how to be a man, or hard-sell attempts to indicate affection for a woman. Williams has never sounded like he felt the need to sell somebody something or to prove anything. Shawn Colvin, Saturday, Jan. 25, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater.

With gained confidence, and the warmth of her new home, Apple breaks from her inhibiting past, embracing the future with clarity and hope.

PETERSBURG The inaugural St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival will be presented Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 1-2, at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE. The grounds of the museum will transform into a unique outdoor gallery showcasing the extraordinary artwork of more than 100 top national and international artists. Graciously hosted by the Museum of Fine Arts, the St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival showcases the original creations of artisans from 25 states and overseas in such mediums as painting, jewelry, sculpting, photography, woodworking, ceramics, glass, fiber art, mixed-media and more. These are among the most collected and awarded artists in America. Attendees will witness an incredible tapestry of artwork woven by the diverse creations of artisans that are masters of their art forms. The festival will feature a variety of sculptural forms from large articulated outdoor animal sculptures, life-like fiber sculptures of African wildlife and exquisite glass wall hangings. The tapestry of artwork is enhanced with unique digital flower imagery, elegant leather purses and handbags interwoven with unique, amazing ceramic art and stunning wildlife photographs. Also find extraordinary handmade clothing and elegant jewelry. Attendees also will enjoy the rare opportunity to meet and interact with the creators of the artwork. Buyers will be able to learn about how their artwork purchases were created. Artists will be onsite Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. Among the participating artists is photographer Barry Hollritt. Hollritt is known for his photographic artwork, especially in the areas of waterfowl and landscape photography. Frequently using landscapes, nature and waterfowl as his, Hollritt actively works to promote environmental awareness through his photography and presentations. Edward Loedding attempts to bridge two opposing art forms: abstract art and realistic art. My approach is not to blur the edges of realism or sharpen the focus of abstraction, but to create a common ground where the two can meet not as opponents coerced into an uneasy balance, but as equal partners singing a new song with one voice, Loedding says in his biography on his website. He creates his artwork digitally. With digital tools, the entire process remains fluid and changeable from the first seed of my idea until I deem the work complete. I can move forward and backward, making decisions on any component of the artwork at any time I want. Kimberly Marshall of Bonita Springs graduated with a degree in fine arts in Toronto, Canada. She is an internationally renowned artist who has won several awards for her creative talents in painting and mixed medium. Though her subject matter is vast, some of Marshalls greatest loves in life are flowers, seascapes and landscapes. Her paintings inspire simple beauty, serenity and joy which are evoked by nature, her travels and photography. By combining several techniques together, I can expound on my creativity and allow my art to flow like the textures which surround our world, Marshall says on her website. My art is an expression of my passion and love for life and all its gifts and amazing beauty. Marius Moores current body of work explores spiritual traditions and places from the Far East to the Himalayas. Since 2006, Moore has been shooting exclusively with digital SLR camera equipment. He believes the technology has reached a point where the image resolution and tonal range made with digital has surpassed that of film. He still considers himself a purist, in that no heavy manipulation of reality is imposed on his work. Travel and technology have made the world a smaller place, and many of the places that were practically impossible to get to in recent times can now be visited and experienced with a little determination and good luck. Thomas Long established his own studio/hotshop in 2001 in St. Augustine, and has been blowing glass for more than 28 years. Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is hand-blown by Long and is created to influence its environment through color, pattern and movement. His stunning and colorful glass sculptures have been featured in Architectural Digest, Florida Design, Florida Architecture and Coastal Living magazines. These artists will be joined by many others Feb. 1-2 at the festival. The St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival is directed by Paragon Fine Art Events, an organizer of fine art festivals, and is hosted by the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg.
