VIEWPOINTSBob DriverDecisions at TIME magazine baffle columnist. Page 13A New fire chiefSeminole Fire Rescue welcomes Heather Burford from Ridgefield Fire DepartmentBy TIFFANY RAZZANO SEMINOLE Earlier this month, Seminole Fire Rescue welcomed a new fire chief into its ranks. Chief Heather Burford, formerly fire chief of the Ridgefield Fire Department in Connecticut, began serving the Seminole area as of Jan. 13. I was ready personally for a change and a new career challenge, she said. Burford replaces George Bessler, who served as fire chief in Seminole for three years before retiring in August. Bessler currently works as training chief for the East Lake Fire Department. [Heather] Burford is an enthusiastic mid-career professional who responded well during our selection process, City Manager Frank Edmunds wrote in an email to the members of City Council after offering her the job. Burford has more than 24 years of experience in fire service. She spent the last seven of those years as fire chief in Ridgefield. The RFD delivers fire, advanced life support, technical rescue, prevention and educational services to a community of over 25,000 residents. As chief, Burford oversaw a staff that consisted of both career and volunteer members, including 37 fulltime fire/EMS personnel, nine fire/EMS dispatchers and a volunteer contingent of 57 members. She was drawn to Seminole Fire Rescue because of its larger scope, she said. With 74 full-time employees, SFR provides fire, rescue, emergency medical and educational services to 80,000 residents and an additional 8,000 tourists and daytime workforce within 25 square miles. Born and raised in Canada, Burford spent some time in the Midwest for college, earning a B.S. from Iowa State University in 1988. After a short stint working for a pharmaceutical company in Manhattan, she discovered the fire and rescue field as a volunteer firefighter. It was sort of accidental, she said. But she realized she loved the field and decided to attend school to become an emergency medical technician. By then she was living in Connecticut and earned her paramedic certificate from Norwalk Community College in 1993. That same year, she left her position as an EMT for Danbury Ambulance Services to join the Manchester Fire-Rescue-EMS Department. Once there, I worked my way up the ranks, Burford said. Over 13 years, she worked her way from firefighter/paramedic to fire lieutenant and finally battalion chief when she left in 2006 to join Ridgefield. She eventually earned a masters degree in public administration from the University of Connecticut. Now Burford brings her experience to Seminole Fire Rescue. When she decided to leave Ridgefield, she knew she wanted to work in either California or Florida. Those are the two areas of the country youll find the movers and shakers in fire protective services, she said. Trends tend to come out of those areas. She focused her job search on Florida, and was also recently considered for the fire chief position with Largo Fire Rescue. The position was eventually offered to Shelby Willis, who came on board this past fall. Burford accepted the position with SFR in early December and moved to Seminole at the end of that month. While exploring and getting to know the area, shes had the chance to chat with locals about what they think of SFR often without telling them who she is to ensure she received honest feedback. I just wanted to understand the perception [of SFR] thats out there, she said.

But, Pinellas County staff still predicts that the cost of doing business will outpace the revenue stream. Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala revealed the latest 10-year budget forecast during a Jan. 21 work session. LaSala described the forecast as a snapshot in time based on the best economic information available from national, state and local sources. This is the fifth year that county staff has prepared the forecast as a prelude to budget preparations for the next fiscal year. LaSala said the forecast helps identify hurdles and whats coming down the road to assist commissioners with their decision-making. Its a great tool the forecast, he said.Economic projectionsOne of the leading national forecast tools is the Gross Domestic Product, expected to grow by 2.6 to 2.8 percent annually over the next three years, according to Jim Abernathy, senior financial management and budget analyst with the Office of Management and Budget. Staff also uses information from the Florida Estimating Conference, which met in December. Abernathy said the states economy is moving in a positive direction with a renewal of population growth and an upswing in tourism. However, the foreclosure rate continues to raise concerns. Florida had eight of the 10 highest rates for foreclosure markets in the United States with Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando, Palm Bay, Port St. Lucie and Tampa Bay making up the top six. Median sales prices for existing homes are up but still remain more than $50,000 below the bubble induced level of late 2006, the staff report said. Unemployment is another indicator of economic growth. The current unemployment rate of 6.4 percent is well below the peak level of 11.4 percent in February 2010, Abernathy said. The most recent unemployment figure released by the state Jan. 24 showed the unemployment rate down to 6.2 percent in December. Locally, economic growth is expected to remain slower than the states, despite declining unemployment. Pinellas Countys unemployment is the lowest since 2008. But the countys population growth is stagnant. The states population is growing pretty fast, Abernathy said. The county doesnt have room for more population. Still, staff expects sales tax collections to See BUDGET, page 5ASEMINOLEAuthor tribute planned at libraryRick Smith, son of Florida author Patrick D.

Photo courtesy of HARRIET AND BOB SACKETTHarriet and Bob Sackett, Lake Seminole Square residents, recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. Their granddaughter honored their committment by getting married on the same day. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Wedding bells rang for Bob and Harriet Sackett on Nov. 18, 1943 in Buffalo, N.Y. That was more than 70 years ago, and the couple, now residents at Lake Seminole Square, is still going strong. We cant believe it ourselves that weve been married for that long, Harriet said. I dont know what our secret is, if we even have a secret. Their granddaughter, Heather Watson, decided to honor her grandparents love and commitment by holding her own wedding on their 70th anniversary date this past fall. Because of health issues, the Sacketts werent able to travel to the 1940s-themed wedding in California. Bob, who was diagnosed with cancer, is undergoing chemotherapy. We decided we couldnt go, Harriet said, adding, Were in pretty bad shape. But were in good shape for the shape that were in, her husband quipped. The Sacketts were still able to celebrate Watsons and their own special day by viewing the wedding via Skype from Lake Seminole Square. The young bride and groom also sent them a duplicate violet bouquet and boutonniere from the wedding party. Their son and daughterin-law Watsons uncle and aunt who live in Pinellas County as well, joined them. It was so wonderful, Harriet said. We were able to see everything. It was a wonderful tribute. They even set up Skype to view the rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately, Harriet fell and injured her shoulder while watching it. So its a good thing we didnt go to California, she said. Bob and Harriet grew up next door to each other in the Finger Lakes region. They began dating while in high school. After graduating, Bob joined the Army and when he returned home, earned his degree from SUNY-Fredonia. The couple moved to Pinellas County in 1958, first to St. Petersburg and then to Seminole in 1969. Bob was a music teacher at Mirror Lake Junior High School and Clearwater High School, where he also served as choral director and dean of boys. He moved on to Largo Middle School to become a counselor. Harriet also worked in the school system, as a bookkeeper for 20 years. The Sacketts have two children and six grandchildren.Couple celebrates 70th wedding anniversary with a twist Photo by LORO DESANTISThe Keswick Christian Schools third-grade class presented a program celebrating Dorothy Van Steenburgs 93rd birthday at Pinecrest Place in Largo. Van Steenburg taught the first grade at Keswick 60 years ago, when the school had only a log cabin on it with some out buildings. Her husband was also the principal there.Happy birthday!

The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then 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 $17,500 to local organizations.

PETERSBURG Eva Schloss the stepsister and childhood friend of Anne Frank, Holocaust survivor and author will speak Monday, Feb. 10, 7:30 p.m., at The Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 25th Ave N. The doors will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $28. Call 344-4900 or visit www.chabadsp.com. Schloss compelling story of survival and how she and her mother rebuilt their lives is gripping. The presentation will be suitable for teenagers and families of all faiths.In 1938, Germany invaded Austria, causing many Jewish families to flee Austria to avoid persecution. Among the emigrants was 8-year-old Eva Geiringer, who with her mother, brother, and father moved first to Belgium and then to Holland, where one of her neighbors was a German Jewish girl of the same age. Her name was Anne Frank.The two girls became friends and playmates. They passed the time by skipping, playing hopscotch and marbles, and drinking lemonade that Annes mother prepared. Ultimately, both girls and their families were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. She recalls the day Anne Franks father showed her a small package containing his daughters diary, and his path in bringing himself back to life by publishing the diary around the world. Eva is a courageous individual who works tirelessly to end the violence and bigotry that continues to plague our world, said Rabbi Alter Korf, of the Chabad Jewish Center of St. Petersburg, the organization sponsoring the event. We are honored and excited to play host to this great person. Schloss has never visited the Tampa Bay area, and it is likely she will not return. Organizers say they are expecting a large turnout from across the spectrum of the greater community.Extension offers landscape services certification classesLARGO Anyone providing landscape services in Pinellas County must complete Best Management Practices training and obtain a vehicle decal for landscape maintenance per Pinellas County fertilizer and landscaping ordinance #10-06. This requirement includes all employees who use mowers, edgers, leaf blowers or other landscaping equipment. The requirement also includes tree service employees. Pinellas County waters are experiencing a decline in water quality as a result of excess nutrient loading through stormwater runoff. Nutrients from fertilizers and landscape debris are major contributors to water pollution. Pinellas County is dedicated to addressing water pollution throughout the county, and education of the industry service professionals is key to improving water quality in Pinellas County and Tampa Bay. The Pinellas County Extension offers Landscape BMP certification classes monthly. Classes are offered in English and in Spanish. The class cost is $15. To see a class schedule and register for a class session, visit www.LandscapeBMP.eventbrite.com.

She served as fire chief in Ridgefield for seven years. See HERE AND THERE, page 9Apeople have a positive perception of the department and what we are able to do. So far, shes impressed by SFRs capabilities and professionalism, she said. She plans to spend the next few months getting to know the community, its leaders and SFR, she said. But she has a passion for firefighter safety, she said, and thats one area on which shed like to focus moving forward. Though, she notes, SFR already has high safety standards. I think its really important that we, as an industry, are constantly evolving and improving what we do and how we do it in terms of safety, she said. That translates to a safer community as well. Its an area of personal interest and concern. Other areas she hopes to focus on include professional development and educational programs for the community, specifically for children and seniors. But right now, my focus is on what we are doing, how were doing it and where were going in the future, she said.

Bed tax collections amounted to a record $31.1 million in 2013, 8.2 percent more than 2012. Staff expects tourism to continue to thrive. The local housing market remains depressed, but sales prices are up over last year. Staff said foreclosures would likely increase over the next few years, keeping prices down. Staff presented the forecast for nine key funds: general, emergency medical services, tourist development, transportation trust, capital projects, airport, water, sewer and solid waste.General fund forecastBarry Lupiani, management and budget analyst, explained the forecast for the General Fund. Staff estimates a $3.9 million budget gap for fiscal year 2015 with the gap growing to $40 million by FY 2024. To close the gap, revenue must increase or spending has to go down. Property taxes account for 67 percent of general fund revenue. Staff estimates an increase of about 3 percent in property tax collections for future years. Taxable values are forecast to increase by 3.4 percent in 2014 and 3 percent each year thereafter through 2017. A half-cent sales tax accounts for 9 percent of the general fund budget. Staff predicts a 4 percent increase in sales tax for fiscal years 2015-2017 and 3.5 percent for 2019-2024. Future general fund spending includes annual increases of 4.3 percent for salary and benefits, and general cost inflation of about 2 percent a year. Lupiani said estimates for FY 2014-2015 did not include potential effects of national insurance reform. Any negative impacts from rising flood insurance cost wont affect property values until at least FY 2015-2016. Bottom line, the budget forecast indicates that the current level of service paid for from the general fund is not sustainable, LaSala said. Recommended ways to balance the budget include reducing or eliminating programs; evaluating compensation options, using return on equity for enterprise funds, increasing the millage rate or use of money held in the service level continuation account, which has a current balance of $10.7 million. It will be 20 years before we get back to where we were in gross revenue, LaSala said, admitting that his projection could be off by a few years. He said the burying power of the dollar had been eroded with 20 years of inflation to take into account. LaSala also pointed out that as unemployment drops, pressure on wages would go up and affect the supply and demand of talent. Our ability to keep people we have and need becomes more of a challenging compounded by the retirement of the baby boomers, he said.Emergency medical services fundVeronica Ettel, senior financial management and budget analyst, presented the forecast for emergency medical services. The EMS fund is not in balance, she said. The budget forecast shows a gap of $3.4 million in FY 2015 with reserves down to 25 percent below the amount required by Commission policy. If nothing changes, the reserve fund would be gone by FY 2018. Millage rate increases would be needed to provide the same level of services. Staff is counting on implementing a consultants recommendations to alleviate the strain on the EMS budget. LaSala said staff was working on translating the Fitch report and would bring recommendations to the commission on Feb. 4. He said after receiving direction, staff would begin work with municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services. The contract with Paramedics Plus to operate the Sunstar ambulance service expires in 2014. It can be extended to 2015. The contract will go out for bid in 2016. The budget forecast includes a 4 percent increase for ambulance service. First responder costs are expected to go up by 5 percent.Transportation trust fundAnother problem spot is the transportation trust fund. Lyn Katare, management and budget analyst, told the commission that the fund is not in balance beginning in FY 2015 and projections show that the fund will run dry by FY 2019. Reasons include rising costs and decreasing revenues due to more fuel-efficient vehicles, Katare said. The budget gap increases in FY 2017 when the local option gas tax expires, unless the commission votes to continue the tax. She said to balance the budget, the commission might have to subsidize transportation with money from the general fund or reduce service.Other fundsLinda Benoit, management and budget analyst, said the water and funds would remain balanced as long as approved 2 percent rate increases continued annually through FY 2015. She said a new rate study would begin this year and a consultant would make recommendations to keep the funds in balance through future years. The solid waste fund also is in balance, although solid waste tipping fees and electricity sales have declined due to the slow economy. Bill Berger, interim director of the Office of Management and Budget, said the capital projects fund would remain in balance as long as staff effectively managed the timing of projects. Plans also include the use of interfund loans from the solid waste fund to address short-term shortfalls. Berger said the forecast did not assume renewal of Penny for Pinellas, which expires in 2020. He said if voter did not approve the tax for future years, money for infrastructure would have to come from the general fund.Budget processBerger talked about potential impacts to the forecast including new federal or state mandates, impact of flood insurance on property values, property tax exemptions, Save Our Homes impact, slower than expected economic growth, changes in the frequency and intensity of storms, utility rate increase and reauthorization of the penny, tourist and gas taxes. The outcome of the referendum on Greenlight Pinellas transportation tax also is on the list. Staff will monitor everything on the list and calculate the effect of any changes on the budget to keep the commission and the public up to date. The Office of Management and Budget officially kicks off the budget season Feb. 7. County departments must submit their strategic plans by Feb. 28. Operating budgets are due by March 17. The CIP budget is due by March 28. Public budget information sessions begin on April 17 with an update on strategic initiatives. Independent agencies will present their budgets on April 24. Constitutional Officers have until May 1 to submit their budgets with budget information session scheduled on May 15 and 22.

On June 12, a budget information session will cover the capital improvement program, and user fees for water, sewer and surface water. The property appraiser will certify property value estimates on July 1 and the county administrator will present his FY 2015 budget on July 15. A meeting to hear feedback on the proposed budget is scheduled on July 22. The commission will meet to finalize proposed millage rates for Truth and Millage notices on July 31. Trim notices will be mailed Aug. 22 The first public hearing on the budget is set for Sept. 11 with a final hearing on Sept. 23. FY 2015 begins Oct. 1. BUDGET, from page 1A

He is currently a member of Clearwater Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center Collision and the Libertarian Party. He also has worked with a number of nonprofit groups.Why run for office?Jolly said he is running to fill the immeasurable void left in Congress and the county after Youngs death. This is what this race is all about to me, he said in response to a questionnaire sent to all candidates. Ive worked on behalf of our community and this congressional district for 20 years alongside our late Congressman, as he consistently found ways to grow high-tech and defense manufacturing jobs here at home, invest in transportation and infrastructure improvements that affect our quality of life, expand higher education opportunities, protect and nourish our beaches, and support our men and women in uniform. I got into this race because I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. I also believe I can bring together Republicans, Independent and Democrats to work together. Sink said, If you see a problem and think you can be part of the solution, you owe it to your community to step up and work to fix it. I am running because I am sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. Its time for Republicans and Democrats to come together to tackle the challenges that matter most to Pinellas County caring for our seniors and veterans, stopping the flood insurance rate spike, helping businesses grow jobs and protecting Medicare and Social Security. As a business leader and (former) Floridas chief financial officer, I put partisanship aside and worked across party lines to get things done. Its these bipartisan, results-oriented values that I will take to Congress to break the gridlock and get results for Pinellas. Overby said he is running because it gives him the opportunity to fight for my neighbors on the national level. I believe that with my knowledge of the community and my lifelong work in the area, I have a unique knowledge of how the laws Congress passes affects the everyday person, he said. Living and working under the regulatory burden imposed on working class citizens for so long, I am in a position to understand how to help my community.Candidates hope to accomplishJolly has three top priorities, creating jobs and growing our economy, repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a market-based solution, and replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Natural Disaster Insurance Program. Sink said the most important thing she wants to do in Congress is to be part of bringing folks together to focus on solving the challenges that matter most to Pinellas, like helping businesses grow jobs. And one of the most important challenges we face here in Pinellas is the flood insurance issue, she said. First, we need to stop the rate spike, but we also need a longer term solution that provides more accountability, transparency and affordability for homeowners. We also need to get Congress focused on protecting our seniors and veterans. I will fight to protect Medicare and Social Security end of discussion. And I want to make it easier for veterans to find jobs and get the benefits theyve earned. As a wife and daughter or Marines, this is very personal to me. Overby said he has short-term and long-term goals. In the short term, we plan to focus on simplifying the tax code, working on cutting federal waste, ending corporate welfare and working toward real immigration relief, he said. While I have long-term and short-term legislative goals, I have spent this campaign focused on goals that would have the greatest immediate impact. In general, my goals will always be to limit the size and scope of the federal government and to open up opportunities for workers and business owners alike.Best qualified candidateJolly said, Pinellas County and our nation deserve a leader who will work to create jobs and grow our local economy, lower taxes, cut wasteful spending, secure Americas borders, lower the national debt, replace Obamacare with free-market health care policy and respect our Constitution and Bill of Rights. I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. Sink said, My commitment to solving problems is driven by my real world experience as a business leader, my service as Floridas Chief Financial Officer and as a contributor to our nonprofit community. In the private sector, I helped Florida families secure the resources they needed to pursue their dreams, and as CFO, I cut wasteful spending to make government do more with less and fought for consumer protections, especially those focused on seniors. My life has always been guided by bipartisan, results-oriented leadership, and its these values I will bring to Washington. Overby said, I am more qualified than my opponents because of both my time and experience in the private sector, which takes a vast understanding of not only existing legislation but preparedness for new legislation, and my time and experience working with this community. Not only do I understand better what is it like to live and work in this community far better than my opponents, I offer a vastly different vantage point on the issues and have the experience to offer solutions.Most pressing issuesJolly said the most pressing issues in Washington, D.C., that affect Pinellas County are the need to create jobs and grow our local economy, repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution, and replace the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Disaster Insurance Program. Additionally, I believe the Administration and Congress must balance the budget, he said. Sink said, Everywhere I go, homeowners and businesses tell me the flood insurance rate spike will put them at risk of losing their homes or businesses. This is yet another self-inflicted crisis Congress has refused to act on and Pinellas families will suffer if they cant put politics aside to solve the problem, she said. Sink said she had outlined several proposals to combat the flood insurance crisis. Protecting Pinellas seniors is also a top priority, she continued. As CFO, I worked to defend Floridas seniors from fraud and abuse and in Congress I will continue in those efforts. Social Security and Medicare are promises that have been made to our seniors and I am committed to being a strong advocate for preserving that promise. Overby said, Having been working with the community to build solutions and address concerns for the past year of this campaign, I have heard time and time again that jobs and the economy are the two biggest concerns. This is the reason I have chosen to go after the legislative reforms that I have. Unless we work toward reopening the small business sector, the people of this district will continue to suffer, he said.What should be done?Jolly said, I started and ran the Florida Federal Contractors Association to sustain and grow Pinellas defense, high-technology and manufacturing industry. We must protect these jobs by electing a member of Congress that understands the important contribution these companies make to job growth and our local economy. Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution that solution should be able to address pre-existing conditions, protect policy owners from cancellation and allow children to remain on their parents policies until a later age just as the Affordable Care Act does, he said. Jolly proposes replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new National Disaster Insurance Program. The Administration and Congress should balance the budget, he said. Merely reducing the amount of the annual deficit does not constitute capturing additional revenue. An actual surplus would create an opportunity to consider additional investment in services with a reduction of the tax burden imposed on individuals and businesses. Sink said, I will work to bring Republicans and Democrats together to focus on the challenges that Pinellas families are facing. Its through bipartisan, commonsense problem solving that we will break through the gridlock and get things done. Those are the values that I have built my career on and its those values I will take to Washington. Overby said, I am working on solutions that would make doing business easier and allow the small business sector to grow. Through tax reform, removal of red tape and clearing the way for small business owners to operate more freely I can help give my community relief from some of their biggest concerns.About the electionThe last day to register to vote in the March 11 special Congressional election or one of the 12 municipal elections is Monday, Feb. 10.

After the special service, there was a display of historical items in Smead Hall. The church began as John Knox Presbyterian Church of Seminole on Sunday, Jan. 19, 1964. Services were held at 8:30 a.m. at the Seminole Elementary School under the pastorate of the Rev. Joseph W. Conyers Jr. Six months later, on July 20, 1964, the congregation held its first service in the new building at 11250 86th Ave. N. The Presbytery had purchased the five-acre site on the corner of 86th Avenue and 113th Street in 1961 and held the groundbreaking for this building, a fellowship hall to be temporarily used as the church sanctuary, on April 6, 1964. On May 16, 1965, the congregation, with 75 members, was formally organized and chose the name Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church. Rev. Bruce Smead was named pastor. He served this congregation for 22 years, from 1965 until he retired in April 1987. The building programs continued, with the addition of the four big classrooms and some storage areas, as well as two small rectangular buildings. One of these buildings is now the choir room and adjoining library. The other contains the main office, including the pastors study, the business office and the workroom. In 1975, the congregation decided to begin the fundraising and planning of the sanctuary, narthex and sacristy. On July 4, 1976, Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church combined the dedication of the churchs sanctuary with the celebration of the nations bicentennial. Congressman C.W. Bill Young was the guest speaker at the event. When Rev. Smead retired in 1986, Rev. William Davis was called to serve at LSPC in 1988. Rev. Davis and his family came from Dubuque, Iowa, and were affiliated with the church until 2003. During this time, in 1991, Rev. Durl Odom brought his congregation from Kirk of the Lake Presbyterian Church (Bardmoor area) to join congregations, and served as assistant pastor for one year. After 15 years, Rev. Davis retired from ministry at LSPC in 2003. In the winter of 2005, Rev. Robert Wierenga accepted the offer to serve as the pastor of LSPC. His installation was held Sept. 25, 2005. Prior to this, his family had spent 10 years as missionaries, first in Costa Rica, then in Venezuela. He holds a doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary and hails from Michigan.

Offer Expires April 30, 2014012314 More than just a day at the zooMom takes a revitalizing day to reconnect with her daughtersAs I watched my two little girls ages 8 and 9 circling around on the Jungle Carousel at the Lowry Park Zoo, I had a thought. Can a day get any better than this? It was such an indescribable feeling, sitting there watching my daughters have fun and not worrying about anything else. The girls were so excited when I said we were going to go to Lowry Park Zoo. They couldnt wait because they hadnt been there in years and loved seeing all of the animals. I couldnt wait because it brought back memories of me taking them when they were younger. It reminded me of days when we could just get in the van and go on a whim. This was before we had restrictions like school and work. Since the girls were babies, two of my favorite places for a day trip were Lowry Park Zoo and Busch Gardens. I think the reason we liked these two attractions was because we love animals, and because we could travel there in less than an hour. I love going to the zoo, because you dont have to pay to park, and the admission price is reasonable. Since the last time we went, they even included most of the rides for free; in the past you had to pay for each ride. We would go to Busch Gardens because they had a preschool pass program where kids could get in free until they were 5 years old. I loved walking them in their stroller. It was great exercise! As they got older, they would walk. Now they run! Our recent trip just brought back so many wonderful memories. Not only memories of the zoo itself, but the people who shared the experiences with us. While we were driving there, we thought about all the different people who went with us, including grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. I realized so many times as parents, we get caught up in our everyday lives. I know I do. Even at the zoo, my phone went off with a text from work. Of course, I started texting back immediately, but youll never guess what happened. My battery that was charged just died. The phone just stopped working. I couldnt text back. I knew it was a sign that I needed to not be thinking about work and re-focus back on why I was there. We need to take time and have quality time with our kids. I needed to do this without distractions. My kids missed that, and I did too. I probably missed it more than them. My kids and I had a blast. The weather was one of Floridas gorgeous sunny days, but not too hot just right in temperature. Even though the parking lot was full, the zoo wasnt crowded. We were able to see everything we wanted to see and not have to wait too long for anything. The only ride we waited more than 20 minutes was the Expedition Africa Guided Safaris, which is an 18-minute tour of the animals on a trolley. On the other rides, like the Jungle Carousel and the Tasmanian Tiger Family Roller Coaster, the waits were minimal. The fun part was going on these rides with the girls. Yes, I evenPhoto by KADI HENDRICKS TUBBSGraci, left, and Randi Kay Tubbs enjoy the roller coaster at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. went on the roller coaster, and I am not one for roller coasters. I asked my girls what the best part of the day was and they said they couldnt pick just one part. They said everything was great! I had to agree. For me this day refreshed and revitalized me as a mom and built on the good memories I already have with my daughters.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

PETERSBURG The Rowdies recently named Perry Van Der Beck general manager of the St. Petersburg-based North American Soccer League franchise. A captain of the 1980 United States Olympic soccer team and 1984 U.S. Soccer Player of the Year, Van Der Beck began his professional career with the Rowdies in 1978, when he was the first player in NASL history to be drafted out of high school. He has held leadership positions with the Tampa Bay Mutiny and the Tampa Bay Terror, and recently served as the executive vice president, technical director and director of player development for the Rowdies. Perry is the perfect man to lead the Rowdies into this new era, said club owner and chairman Bill Edwards. His personal history with the team, along with his passion, vision and proven track record at developing young talent, will help him build a perennial winner here in Tampa Bay. Together we will do great things for the club and our community. I am thrilled to have this opportunity, said Van Der Beck. The Rowdies organization has held a special place in my heart for the last 35 years, and were blessed with the most boisterous, enthusiastic fans in all of NASL. We captured the Soccer Bowl Championship in 2012, and my entire staff is focused on returning the championship trophy to Tampa Bay where it belongs. I look forward to helping Bill Edwards create not just the best on-field soccer team, but the best fan experience anywhere in the country. Van Der Beck has earned industry-wide acclaim as one of the premier developers of new soccer talent. From 1988 to 1994, Van Der Beck was a star player and assistant coach for the Tampa Bay Rowdies, and also made 23 appearances for the U.S. National Team. Among his many individual awards are 1984 U.S. Player of the Year and captain of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. During the 2003-04 season, Van Der Beck was a staff coach with the Adidas Elite Soccer Program, which identifies the nations best high school players and coaches them in a weeklong training program. From 2004 to 2006, he was head coach and technical director of the Olympic Development Program for the Super Y League, a National Youth League. The Rowdies were the first professional sports franchise in the area and remain one of the most recognizable and well-loved brands in soccer. Originally established in 1975, the team won the NASL Soccer Bowl championship in its inaugural year and created a unique, entertaining and memorable franchise with the Fannies, Wowdies and unforgettable Kick in the Grass theme song. In 2008, a group of investors announced the purchase of rights to a professional soccer franchise and the newly established team began play in 2010. In 2012, the Rowdies won the NASL Soccer Bowl Championship after a thrilling shoot-out victory in front of a sold out crowd at Al Lang Stadium in downtown St. Petersburg.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563I was still very cold in St. Augustine early on the 14th day of Christmas, as I edited this Florida Perspectives column. Scanning the Weather Channel website, even Tampa, my new other favorite Florida city, registered in the upper mid-30s. But, as the warm-up continues, its my good fortune to be a native of the Sunshine State, aka Paradise. I doubt that those residents with allegiance to The Florida State University noticed the cold at all on Monday or Tuesday nights or, even this morning. Theyre still celebrating their season-ending joy winning the BCS National Championship in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on Twelfth Night. I am sure that the most-worn apparel on flights outbound Tuesday to Florida screamed garnet and gold. And, I say that while proudly wearing my Florida Gators orange and blue. (We will get back there, Gators, eventually). But, today is not about gridiron championships. Its about the start of the second season for public school students. Competition in the classroom heats up student by student, grade by grade, school by school, county by county. Its the season of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, aka FCAT. In late February, FCAT Writing tests are given. Mid-April to early May, its FCAT testing in reading, math and science. FCAT results are high-stakes competition for students, teachers, and administrators. St. Johns County School Superintendent Joe Joyner knows that. This district has been Number One overall or, shared the honor, this past decade. (Given the districts success, we know why Joyner was a potential lieutenant governor candidate last fall. Wisely, he thanked Gov. Rick Scott for the honor but declined further consideration.) In his weekly report to educators, parents and the general public, Joyner noted the upcoming testing. As is customary following the winter break, we will now focus on academic progress leading up to testing and assessment for all grades, he said. This culminates with opportunities for our students to show the skills and knowledge that they have acquired throughout the entire year. I encourage you to make note of district-wide testing dates on the 2013-2014 Master Calendar to ensure that you can plan and help your child prepare for success! If you havent heard the testing message in your own district, or missed it, check for yourself. Student success starts at home. Strong parental support for learning, a good nights sleep and a good breakfast for the students counts heavily. Business operators, who employ students, should also take note when it comes to their work schedules. Student success is our responsibility, because it reflects on their futures, our teachers and our schools.Margo C. Pope is a former editorial page editor of The St. Augustine Record.LETTERS The sad decline of TIME magazineDo you remember what TIME magazine used to be like? I do, but Im older than most Americans. That means I can recall when journalism stood for providing information, much more than entertainment or titillation. In 1959, in Rome, I was with some students from Syracuse University. One of them said, Over here, I cant get my weekly copy of TIME. How am I gonna know what to think? Many Americans felt the same way. Even if you didnt agree with TIMEs moderately right-wing position on issues, you could feel that after spending an hour or two with the latest issue of TIME you were up to date on most of the major national and world news stories. TIME had correspondents scattered throughout the world. Publisher Henry Luce was a force to be reckoned with. Each week TIME furnished its readers with reams of content, i.e., words and sentences. It also supplied photos and artwork that complemented the stories without overwhelming them. The magazine seemed to be aimed at intelligent, concerned adults. Over the past half-century, that has changed. I wont bore you with a detailed chronology. Ill just describe some aspects of recent TIME issues. On the plus side, you can still find a few detailed, well-written stories about important public figures and vital problems the USA and the rest of the world are grappling with. The Jan. 20 issue featured a cover story on Janet Yellen, the incoming chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve system and the first woman ever to hold that job. Another story dealt with the resurgence of Iraqs Al-Qaeda forces. There was a guest column by a Christian-magazine editor about end-of-life decisions that often must be made for or by critically ill persons. Columnist Joe Klein (probably the main reason I still subscribe to TIME) wrote about income inequality. The rest of the issue contained a scattering of brief stories that might be described as significant. Or not. Im no authority on magazine publishing, but it seems to me that every serious news journal has at least two or three crucial decisions to make for each issue. (1) Which stories do we choose to run? (2) How much space do we give to each story? (3) How do we display the magazines total content news, photos, advertisements, headlines? Today TIMEs weekly decisions on those matters baffle me. With only a limited amount of room in each issue, how can the editors justify devoting a two-page spread in the Jan. 20 issue to the photo of an infant being lifted from the rubble of a recent air attack in Damascus? A similar profligate use of precious space was a full-page inside photo of Janet Yellen (whom we had already seen on the cover), facing an opposite page whose total content was forty superfluous words whose message could have been captured in a single paragraph of running text. In the Culture section we were treated to not just one, but two full-page photos of Hollywood celebrity Spike Jonze. To which any thinking reader might cry out, Why? A twoinch mug shot would have done the same job, thus freeing up room for a thousand words of text. TIMEs philosophy of space allocation can be seen in the squeentsy semi-agate art captions that practically shout to subscribers past age 70, If you cant read this tiny type, the hell with you. Young people can, and they have the most money. Theyre the ones our advertisers want to reach. The worst example of space allocation in the Jan. 20 issue was a five-page spread on an exercise program called Crossfit something all America has been begging to learn about, dont you know? After thumbing through the issues inexplicable mish-mash, I asked myself, Why do you subscribe to TIME? I have no ready answer. I can get most of the news I need from The Week magazine, the Internet, and other easily available sources. Several mornings each week, as I wake up, I reach out for my Kindle. I switch it on and, for 50 cents or a buck, order the days edition of the Boston Globe, New York Times or Tampa Bay Times. A few seconds later Im awash in news from around the world. In fairness to the people who write and publish TIME, I must concede that dozens of good reasons may exist for the many changes to the once-worshipped magazine. In any age, the news business is a shifting, competitive, dog-eat-dog way to earn a buck while staying alive. High on the list of any publications headaches is the unpredictable nature of the publics preferences. Plus columns like this one, whining and kvetching because life aint like it used to be.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.Kudos to music that gives us pauseIt was a time when great songwriters told us about tin soldiers and Nixon coming and reminded us that the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls. Whether putting flowers in gun barrels helped change the world in the 1960s is debatable, but the messages in the music of those turbulent times sent powerful messages, gave us pause. And that music still does. In a daydream, I wondered whats happened to protest music and songs that spoke about social consciousness. Certainly, world events continue to cry for more of such works the U.S. government shutdown, instability in the Middle East, war in Afghanistan, Edward Snowden, among other issues. I dont hear it, at least not on my radio stations. Flash back to the s and s. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, among my favorite musical groups, gave us Ohio, about the killing and wounding of students by soldiers during an antiwar protest at Kent State University. Along those lines is Chicago, written by Graham Nash in response to Mayor Richard Daleys shameful handling of riots during the Democratic Convention in Chicago in 1968 and other issues. I always liked Credence Clearwater Revivals Fortunate Son, an anti-Vietnam War song critical of class discrepancies. The song was played during a war scene in the movie Forrest Gump and fit nicely onto the soundtrack.We had Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez. Remember the Eve of Destruction? It was made famous by Barry McGuire, who performed rock, folk and contemporary Christian music. John Lennons Imagine, with its enduring theme of peace and love, is listed as No. 3 on Rolling Stones 500 greatest songs of all time. Im sure youve heard it. Didnt check to see if any music by his other half, Yoko Ono, made the list, though. My favorite songwriter is Paul Simon. The works of Simon and Garfunkel in the 1960s are unsurpassed in their themes about the downtrodden, dispossessed and neglected, such as the Sound of Silence. Who can forget the classic verse from the song Mrs. Robinson: Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio? Yes, hes gone, but Im glad Paul Simon is still around. In the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen, Born in the USA, and U2, Sunday, Bloody Sunday, produced some stirring protest songs. Also one of my favorites is Midnight Oils Beds are Burning, a song about giving native Australian lands back to the Pintupi, who were among the very last people to come in from the desert, according to the website SongFacts. Im hard pressed to think of any renowned songs inspired by war, politics or other significant issues that were produced in the last decade. A cursory search on the Internet gave some insight. This, from New York Times music writer James C. McKinley Jr. in 2011, capsulizes my line of thinking: So far, musicians living through the biggest economic disaster since the Great Depression have filled the airwaves with songs about dancing, not the worries of working people, he wrote. Is it because the great icons of dissent from bygone eras are too far removed from current forms of expression and communication to make an impact on the current generation of songwriters? Folk singers have been revered for their social commentary, such as Pete Seeger, the author of Where Have All the Flowers Gone, and Turn, Turn, Turn. But Seegers era, the 1950s, is long past. Perhaps, too, many of us as true of any generation are reluctant to embrace newer forms of music. Im about as flexible as Stonehenge. However, while searching for articles about recent examples of provocative protest music, I came across rap artist Pharoahe Monchs tribute song to Trayvon Martin called Stand Your Ground, an effort to repeal the law used to protect George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Martin. Kudos to Monch, known as a socially conscious musician, for delivering what Huffpost Live calls a potent, hard song that decries the verdict through a sound somewhere between punk rock and hip-hop. Whether I agree with the verdict in the case is immaterial here. What I applaud is any artists earnest attempt to help bring about change or at least make us think. Hail to musicians who write songs that dare to disturb the sound of silence.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tger mond@TBNweekly.com.

Margo Pope Student success starts at home Tom Germond Drivers SeatBob Driver An aberration of historical factsRe: Editorial cartoon, Jan. 23.Editor: The Star of David prominently placed in the heavens with a dedication to Ariel Sharon 1928-2014 was meant by the cartoonist to celebrate the life of General and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. There are a number of Jewish academicians who agree that Sharon is the man responsible for destroying any hope of a viable Palestinian state with the destruction of hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages and with the introduction of Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands, ergo, sabotaging any peace treaty between representatives of all Palestinians and of all Israelis. Sharons military incursion into Beirut allowed the massacre by Lebanese Christians of over one thousand Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila camps of southern Beirut in September of 1982. He was found indirectly guilty by an Israeli Commission. These famous academicians are: Prof. Ilan Pappe and Prof. Avi Shlaim (two Israeli historians), Prof. Noam Choamsky, Prof. Norman Finkelstein, and Prof. John J. Mearsheimer, educators and authors all. To praise Sharon as a shining star is an aberration of historical facts which the cartoonist should have known. Arthur Hebert LargoHeed words of Lawrence of ArabiaEditor: I fear the muted din echoing in the distance is emanating once more from the drums of war being beat by those urging Americas military involvement in the mid-East. With this in mind it seemed an opportune moment to revisit an article I wrote which was printed elsewhere a few years ago. The message is still pertinent today, and perhaps even more so in view of the fact we still find ourselves bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan with no real satisfactory conclusion in sight. In my letter I cautioned against ignoring the lessons of history when making decisions, especially when those decisions involve military commitment. In order to add emphasis and lend authority to my message I quoted a chillingly prescient article written by Col. T.E. Lawrence. It was sent from Arabia and subsequently published in the London Times in 1920. Quoting the author he wrote, The people of England have been led in Iraq into a trap from which it is hard to escape with dignity and honor. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. Things have been far worse than we have been told, our administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. Today, we are not far from disaster. The writer then went on to explain the difficulty of trying to impose western style democracy on nations to whom the concept itself was foreign, and which in many instances violated their religious beliefs. Taking liberty here, it is my contention he was including in this admonition all Arab and Muslim nations. Resuming the quote he went on to argue, How long will we permit millions of pounds, thousands of troops and tens of thousands of Arabs to be sacrificed on behalf of a colonial administration which can benefit nobody but its administration? It is fair to say in view of what has transpired in the past few years that Lawrence of Arabia knew that of which he spoke. Unfortunately, we (Americans) have turned a deaf ear to his message, or for that matter to the messages of anyone proffering similar arguments in protest of our actions. Will we ever learn to listen, or more importantly, listen to learn? Robert A. Shaw Madeira Beach

InspiredLiving plans Alzheimers seminarST. PETERSBURG InspiredLiving at Ivy Ridge will conduct a free educational seminar for community members who are providing care for a loved one with Alzheimers or other memory disorder. The seminar, titled Coping Techniques for Caregivers, will be presented Wednesday, Feb. 12, 10:30 a.m., at InspiredLiving at Ivy Ridge, 7179 40th Ave. N. Presented by, AJ Cipperly, director of programming for InspiredLiving, the seminar will address coping techniques for the many challenges caregivers face today in caring for an aging loved one who suffers from Alzheimers disease, dementia or other form of memory loss. When you find yourself in the role of primary caregiver for a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimers disease, you may feel overwhelmed and beset with a wide array of emotions sadness, anxiety, hopelessness and even anger are common, said Cipperly in a press release.

Most often when we speak of success it is material possessions and fame. However, success can very much be a volunteer who gives of their time to those in need but no one ever hears about. It can be a mother or father who gave up their own dreams to invest in their children. A single parent who stayed and worked several jobs to make sure their family did not go without. The person who gives beyond their means to help another. My conclusion is the heart determines the success of a person. I do not believe success can or should be measured by things. Success is an inside job. If you give your very best to your passion, your mission, your lifes work, then you are successful. Do not let anyone or anything tell you otherwise. Be your SUCCESS today!This article was provided by Laura Morelli, an orthopedic specialist at The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers, 1660 Gulfto-Bay Blvd, Clearwater.How do you measure success? Is it the car you drive, the house or neighborhood you live in? Maybe the degree you hold or the career path you chose? For others, maybe a club status or choosing the right life partner, fulfilling a dream? This question I believe has endless possibilities. For each and everyone of us most definitely a different answer. You see, it is all a matter of perspective. What one views as success may be very, very different for another. It is truly whatever you put your whole heart into. If an education and awesome career path is your heart, then go for it all the way. If there is a dream youve been dreaming, then work hard to make that dream a reality! Every bit of it is For your healthLaura Morelli State DOH announces new healthiest weight snapshotsThe Florida Department of Health has rolled out a new resource providing the first comprehensive healthiest weight profile for each of the states 67 counties. This new tool provides an important view of the progress in each of our counties as we work to become the healthiest state in the nation, said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. The County-Level Healthiest Weight Snapshots tool is a part of the Community Health Assessment Resource Tool Set and features information designed to assist families, health care professionals, policy makers and whole communities to help Floridians achieve a healthy weight. To find profiles per county, visit www.floridacharts.com/charts/default.aspx and click on the healthiest weight profile link. Information by county is available in the dropdown menu. To find the rates of overweight and obese adults in the Tampa Bay area, check the data for Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco. In Pinellas, about 42 percent of adults are overweight and 24 percent are obese. In Hillsborough, 39 percent of adults are overweight and 25 percent are obese. Pascos rate of overweight residents is 36 percent, with 31 percent of adults classified as obese. The tool includes demographic, behavioral and built environment measures relating to the communitys healthy weight status, and may be used to support community health assessments, provide data for health and weight related research and encourage communities to continue their efforts to improve nutrition and increase physical activity. Healthiest Weight Florida is a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, not for profit organizations, businesses and entire communities to help Floridas children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living.

Fielden Bruce Odell, 31, of Seminole was driving a 2003 Dodge Ram at the time of the crash about 7:40 a.m. Nov. 20. He was traveling southbound on 71st Street North approaching 50th Avenue North when he attempted to pass another southbound vehicle. According to FHPs report, Odell over-corrected and traveled back across the roadway. The truck rotated clockwise before traveling into a culvert, becoming airborne, then overturning before finally colliding with a utility pole. When the vehicle overturned, Odell was ejected from the vehicle. He suffered minor injuries and was transported to Bayfront Medical Center. Odells passenger, Benjamin Jacob Staker, 34, of Kenneth City died at the scene. Odell was charged with vehicular homicide and ticketed for no seatbelt. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail Jan. 21 and released the same day on $10,000 bond. According to jail reports, Odell was booked two times in 2007 and once in 2010 on domestic battery charges.Skateboard bandit caughtCLEARWATER A suspect in the skateboard-riding Target thief case was arrested on Jan. 22, according to a Clearwater police report. David Ahmaal Aziz Kennedy has been charged with robbery with a deadly weapon because he allegedly showed a knife when store employees encountered him near the doors, the report said. Kennedy was identified as the suspect in the Jan. 15 robbery of the Super Target at 2747 Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard when police say he went into the store one minute before closing, grabbed a 32-inch flat-screen TV and fled the store on a skateboard. Surveillance video was released after the robbery that showed the suspect skating through the store with the TV in his possession and also showed him fleeing Target on the skateboard, the police report said. The video was posted on the Clearwater Police Department Facebook page, where more than 15,000 people viewed it. Apparently one of those views was Kennedy himself, who said a friend told him that he should check out the video, the police report said. He did not, however, admit to detectives that it was him in the video or that he robbed the store. Kennedy, 30, lives in Clearwater and his arrest record shows that he has been arrested at least 18 times in Pinellas since 2010, according to the Pinellas County Sheriffs site. His most recent arrest prior to this one was on Jan. 9 on a grand theft charge, police say. He was released from jail on that charge on Jan. 14, and the Target robbery was the next day, the report said. He was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.Two sent to hospital in crashCLEARWATER Two people were taken to the hospital after a crash on the morning of Jan. 22 at Martin Luther King Jr. and Laura streets. A pickup flipped over after colliding with an SUV at the intersection, according to a Clearwater Police report. Two people from the SUV were taken to the hospital for treatment of what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries. Clearwater Fire and Rescue workers extradited the patients from the vehicle. One of the members of the department hung out with a little girl who had been in the vehicle but was uninjured, the police report said. He sat with her and offered her a stuffed animal as he tried to explain what was happening as she watched her family members be rescued and treated.

A series of unexpected adventures including, getting kicked out of a strip club, being mugged and getting pummeled by the Las Vegas reigning gelatin-wrestling champion, Veronica, rip them from the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip and places them smack dab in Vegas seedy underbelly. Determined to keep their bachelorette party dreams alive, the girls band together and embark on the wildest night in bachelorette party history. Fueled by sex and booze, this raunchy, riotously hilarious, out-of-control, blowout is, for better or worse, all caught on tape. And is destined to go down as the Best Night Ever.Tims VermeerGenre: Documentary Director: Raymond Joseph Teller Rated: PG-13 Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenisons adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen.At MiddletonGenre: Romance Cast: Andy Garcia, Vera Farmiga, Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Nicholas Braun, Peter Riegert and Tom Skerritt Director: Adam Rodgers Rated: R Academy Award nominees Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga star as straight-laced George and eccentric Edith, two strangers who meet on their childrens campus tour at the idyllic Middleton College. Failing comically to connect with their kids, George and Edith play hooky together, ditching the official tour for a carefree adventure reminiscent of their own college years. But what begins as an afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever. A light-hearted romance for adults on the surface, At Middleton is a deeply moving portrait of roads not taken and the timelessness of youth.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly .com.

In between touring the world with Bon Jovi, Lenny Kravitz, Brian May of Queen, The Cranberries and Van Hunt, Vintage Trouble has headlined smaller venues creating a raucous energy that captivates the audience and turns clubs and pubs into wild late night parties. The band released its debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions, in 2011. Savoy Brown was formed in London in 1965 by guitarist Kim Simmonds. Originally a UK version of a Chicago blues band, the group developed into a classic and highly original rock band but always managed to keep its blues roots intact. The bands 1967 debut, Shakedown, helped launch the British blues boom. Savoy Brown continued to find commercial success as a blues band in the 1970s with albums such as Hellbound Train. The band will release a new album, Goin to the Delta, in February. More blues on the billWidely regarded as one of worlds very best female guitarplayers, Ana Popovics career has been meteoric, and shows no signs of slowing down. The Serbian-born musician has become one of the most lauded blues guitarists on the circuit. Popovic moved to Memphis to capture the citys greasy Stax sound, record at Ardent Studios, and play with its finest musicians. Albert King and WAR equally inspire her 2013 LP Can You Stand The Heat. The most impressive aspect of her music is her diversity of techniques and styles. Her blend of smoking electric funk slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals, tight blues groove, soulful feminine vocals and her incredible stage presence makes her an irresistible force in the music world. Born in 1969, Eric Lindell is an American singer-songwriter who came to national prominence after relocating to New Orleans in 1999. His recording career began in 1996 as a local/regional New Orleans-based artist. Beginning in 2006, when Alligator Records picked him up, he began touring nationally and internationally. He recorded three albums for Alligator and has since issued several CDs on smaller indie labels. Like the legendary female singers she most admires Etta James, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin, and Aretha Franklin Lauren Mitchell gives audiences everything she has and then some. From her roots singing in the churches of Ohio, to the southern blues and rock scene throughout Florida, Mitchell has honed her craft by singing her heart out in hundreds of honkytonks and blues halls along the way.

Kansas City-based Samantha Fish has been on a roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Rufs 2011 release, Girls with Guitars. Fueled by the trios Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the United States, and the international buzz it created in the blues world, Fish recorded Runaway, her solo debut on Ruf, which mixed gutsy riff-blues rockers like Down In The Swamp with the mellow small-hours jazz of Feelin Alright, while marinating her songwriting in the groove of the Rolling Stones and even tipping a hat to Heart. Hitting a receptive international blues and rock press, Runaway was hailed as a thrilling opening statement, earning a string of rave reviews and radio airplay, climaxed by her winning the Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut in 2012. Fish followed up Runaway last September, unleashing her trademark guitar work and soulful vocals on the new album Black Wind Howlin. Rather than trying to duplicate what she accomplished on her first success, Fish re-defines her sound throughout the tracks on Black Wind Howlin. She can be brutally rocking on cuts like the tour bus snapshot of Miles To Go, the swaggering Sucker Born and the venomous Go To Hell. Born in 1991 in St. Louis, Mo., Marquise Knox hails from a musical family deeply entrenched in the blues. SEA-BLUES, from page 4BHe learned how to play guitar from his grandmother Lillie whose family members were sharecroppers and whose great, great grandparents were slaves. He also played with his Uncle Clifford, who was a major influence in Knoxs life. For Knox, blues is his heritage and a way of life. He spent his early teenage years in St. Louis mentoring under the late great blues legend, N.E.A. Heritage Fellowship recipient and Grammy Award winner Henry James Townsend. Knoxs talents have earned him performing rights with some of Americas most notable blues performers such as blues legend and Grammy Award winners B.B. King, Pinetop Perkins and David Honeyboy Edwards. He has also performed at dozens of festivals, and has toured Germany and played the Baden Blues Festival in Switzerland.

I am so looking forward to our first Cabaret on Jan. 30. I may even sing a song or two. For more information, call Barcaski at 348-6682.

VIEWPOINTSBob DriverDecisions at TIME magazine baffle columnist. Page 13A New fire chiefSeminole Fire Rescue welcomes Heather Burford from Ridgefield Fire DepartmentBy TIFFANY RAZZANO SEMINOLE Earlier this month, Seminole Fire Rescue welcomed a new fire chief into its ranks. Chief Heather Burford, formerly fire chief of the Ridgefield Fire Department in Connecticut, began serving the Seminole area as of Jan. 13. I was ready personally for a change and a new career challenge, she said. Burford replaces George Bessler, who served as fire chief in Seminole for three years before retiring in August. Bessler currently works as training chief for the East Lake Fire Department. [Heather] Burford is an enthusiastic mid-career professional who responded well during our selection process, City Manager Frank Edmunds wrote in an email to the members of City Council after offering her the job. Burford has more than 24 years of experience in fire service. She spent the last seven of those years as fire chief in Ridgefield. The RFD delivers fire, advanced life support, technical rescue, prevention and educational services to a community of over 25,000 residents. As chief, Burford oversaw a staff that consisted of both career and volunteer members, including 37 fulltime fire/EMS personnel, nine fire/EMS dispatchers and a volunteer contingent of 57 members. She was drawn to Seminole Fire Rescue because of its larger scope, she said. With 74 full-time employees, SFR provides fire, rescue, emergency medical and educational services to 80,000 residents and an additional 8,000 tourists and daytime workforce within 25 square miles. Born and raised in Canada, Burford spent some time in the Midwest for college, earning a B.S. from Iowa State University in 1988. After a short stint working for a pharmaceutical company in Manhattan, she discovered the fire and rescue field as a volunteer firefighter. It was sort of accidental, she said. But she realized she loved the field and decided to attend school to become an emergency medical technician. By then she was living in Connecticut and earned her paramedic certificate from Norwalk Community College in 1993. That same year, she left her position as an EMT for Danbury Ambulance Services to join the Manchester Fire-Rescue-EMS Department. Once there, I worked my way up the ranks, Burford said. Over 13 years, she worked her way from firefighter/paramedic to fire lieutenant and finally battalion chief when she left in 2006 to join Ridgefield. She eventually earned a masters degree in public administration from the University of Connecticut. Now Burford brings her experience to Seminole Fire Rescue. When she decided to leave Ridgefield, she knew she wanted to work in either California or Florida. Those are the two areas of the country youll find the movers and shakers in fire protective services, she said. Trends tend to come out of those areas. She focused her job search on Florida, and was also recently considered for the fire chief position with Largo Fire Rescue. The position was eventually offered to Shelby Willis, who came on board this past fall. Burford accepted the position with SFR in early December and moved to Seminole at the end of that month. While exploring and getting to know the area, shes had the chance to chat with locals about what they think of SFR often without telling them who she is to ensure she received honest feedback. I just wanted to understand the perception [of SFR] thats out there, she said.

Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala revealed the latest 10-year budget forecast during a Jan. 21 work session. LaSala described the forecast as a snapshot in time based on the best economic information available from national, state and local sources. This is the fifth year that county staff has prepared the forecast as a prelude to budget preparations for the next fiscal year. LaSala said the forecast helps identify hurdles and whats coming down the road to assist commissioners with their decision-making. Its a great tool the forecast, he said.Economic projectionsOne of the leading national forecast tools is the Gross Domestic Product, expected to grow by 2.6 to 2.8 percent annually over the next three years, according to Jim Abernathy, senior financial management and budget analyst with the Office of Management and Budget. Staff also uses information from the Florida Estimating Conference, which met in December. Abernathy said the states economy is moving in a positive direction with a renewal of population growth and an upswing in tourism. However, the foreclosure rate continues to raise concerns. Florida had eight of the 10 highest rates for foreclosure markets in the United States with Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando, Palm Bay, Port St. Lucie and Tampa Bay making up the top six. Median sales prices for existing homes are up but still remain more than $50,000 below the bubble induced level of late 2006, the staff report said. Unemployment is another indicator of economic growth. The current unemployment rate of 6.4 percent is well below the peak level of 11.4 percent in February 2010, Abernathy said. The most recent unemployment figure released by the state Jan. 24 showed the unemployment rate down to 6.2 percent in December. Locally, economic growth is expected to remain slower than the states, despite declining unemployment. Pinellas Countys unemployment is the lowest since 2008. But the countys population growth is stagnant. The states population is growing pretty fast, Abernathy said. The county doesnt have room for more population. Still, staff expects sales tax collections to See BUDGET, page 5ASEMINOLEAuthor tribute planned at libraryRick Smith, son of Florida author Patrick D.

Photo courtesy of HARRIET AND BOB SACKETTHarriet and Bob Sackett, Lake Seminole Square residents, recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. Their granddaughter honored their committment by getting married on the same day. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Wedding bells rang for Bob and Harriet Sackett on Nov. 18, 1943 in Buffalo, N.Y. That was more than 70 years ago, and the couple, now residents at Lake Seminole Square, is still going strong. We cant believe it ourselves that weve been married for that long, Harriet said. I dont know what our secret is, if we even have a secret. Their granddaughter, Heather Watson, decided to honor her grandparents love and commitment by holding her own wedding on their 70th anniversary date this past fall. Because of health issues, the Sacketts werent able to travel to the 1940s-themed wedding in California. Bob, who was diagnosed with cancer, is undergoing chemotherapy. We decided we couldnt go, Harriet said, adding, Were in pretty bad shape. But were in good shape for the shape that were in, her husband quipped. The Sacketts were still able to celebrate Watsons and their own special day by viewing the wedding via Skype from Lake Seminole Square. The young bride and groom also sent them a duplicate violet bouquet and boutonniere from the wedding party. Their son and daughterin-law Watsons uncle and aunt who live in Pinellas County as well, joined them. It was so wonderful, Harriet said. We were able to see everything. It was a wonderful tribute. They even set up Skype to view the rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately, Harriet fell and injured her shoulder while watching it. So its a good thing we didnt go to California, she said. Bob and Harriet grew up next door to each other in the Finger Lakes region. They began dating while in high school. After graduating, Bob joined the Army and when he returned home, earned his degree from SUNY-Fredonia. The couple moved to Pinellas County in 1958, first to St. Petersburg and then to Seminole in 1969. Bob was a music teacher at Mirror Lake Junior High School and Clearwater High School, where he also served as choral director and dean of boys. He moved on to Largo Middle School to become a counselor. Harriet also worked in the school system, as a bookkeeper for 20 years. The Sacketts have two children and six grandchildren.Couple celebrates 70th wedding anniversary with a twist Photo by LORO DESANTISThe Keswick Christian Schools third-grade class presented a program celebrating Dorothy Van Steenburgs 93rd birthday at Pinecrest Place in Largo.

Here and There Here and There100 Women Who Care to meet Feb. 11PINELLAS PARK The 100 Women Who Care, a group uniting Pinellas County women to make a collective monetary impact on community charities, will meet Tuesday, Feb. 11, 7 to 8 p.m., with a social time at 6:30 p.m., at Ready for Life, 4000 Gateway Centre Blvd., Suite 200. Patterned after a similar group in Michigan, this concept has been very effective in other communities around the United States. The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then 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 $17,500 to local organizations.

PETERSBURG Eva Schloss the stepsister and childhood friend of Anne Frank, Holocaust survivor and author will speak Monday, Feb. 10, 7:30 p.m., at The Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 25th Ave N. The doors will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $28. Call 344-4900 or visit www.chabadsp.com. Schloss compelling story of survival and how she and her mother rebuilt their lives is gripping. The presentation will be suitable for teenagers and families of all faiths.In 1938, Germany invaded Austria, causing many Jewish families to flee Austria to avoid persecution. Among the emigrants was 8-year-old Eva Geiringer, who with her mother, brother, and father moved first to Belgium and then to Holland, where one of her neighbors was a German Jewish girl of the same age. Her name was Anne Frank.The two girls became friends and playmates. They passed the time by skipping, playing hopscotch and marbles, and drinking lemonade that Annes mother prepared. Ultimately, both girls and their families were deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. She recalls the day Anne Franks father showed her a small package containing his daughters diary, and his path in bringing himself back to life by publishing the diary around the world. Eva is a courageous individual who works tirelessly to end the violence and bigotry that continues to plague our world, said Rabbi Alter Korf, of the Chabad Jewish Center of St. Petersburg, the organization sponsoring the event. We are honored and excited to play host to this great person. Schloss has never visited the Tampa Bay area, and it is likely she will not return. Organizers say they are expecting a large turnout from across the spectrum of the greater community.Extension offers landscape services certification classesLARGO Anyone providing landscape services in Pinellas County must complete Best Management Practices training and obtain a vehicle decal for landscape maintenance per Pinellas County fertilizer and landscaping ordinance #10-06. This requirement includes all employees who use mowers, edgers, leaf blowers or other landscaping equipment. The requirement also includes tree service employees. Pinellas County waters are experiencing a decline in water quality as a result of excess nutrient loading through stormwater runoff. Nutrients from fertilizers and landscape debris are major contributors to water pollution. Pinellas County is dedicated to addressing water pollution throughout the county, and education of the industry service professionals is key to improving water quality in Pinellas County and Tampa Bay. The Pinellas County Extension offers Landscape BMP certification classes monthly. Classes are offered in English and in Spanish. The class cost is $15.

She served as fire chief in Ridgefield for seven years. See HERE AND THERE, page 9Apeople have a positive perception of the department and what we are able to do. So far, shes impressed by SFRs capabilities and professionalism, she said. She plans to spend the next few months getting to know the community, its leaders and SFR, she said. But she has a passion for firefighter safety, she said, and thats one area on which shed like to focus moving forward. Though, she notes, SFR already has high safety standards. I think its really important that we, as an industry, are constantly evolving and improving what we do and how we do it in terms of safety, she said. That translates to a safer community as well. Its an area of personal interest and concern. Other areas she hopes to focus on include professional development and educational programs for the community, specifically for children and seniors. But right now, my focus is on what we are doing, how were doing it and where were going in the future, she said.

Bed tax collections amounted to a record $31.1 million in 2013, 8.2 percent more than 2012. Staff expects tourism to continue to thrive. The local housing market remains depressed, but sales prices are up over last year. Staff said foreclosures would likely increase over the next few years, keeping prices down. Staff presented the forecast for nine key funds: general, emergency medical services, tourist development, transportation trust, capital projects, airport, water, sewer and solid waste.General fund forecastBarry Lupiani, management and budget analyst, explained the forecast for the General Fund. Staff estimates a $3.9 million budget gap for fiscal year 2015 with the gap growing to $40 million by FY 2024. To close the gap, revenue must increase or spending has to go down. Property taxes account for 67 percent of general fund revenue. Staff estimates an increase of about 3 percent in property tax collections for future years. Taxable values are forecast to increase by 3.4 percent in 2014 and 3 percent each year thereafter through 2017. A half-cent sales tax accounts for 9 percent of the general fund budget. Staff predicts a 4 percent increase in sales tax for fiscal years 2015-2017 and 3.5 percent for 2019-2024. Future general fund spending includes annual increases of 4.3 percent for salary and benefits, and general cost inflation of about 2 percent a year. Lupiani said estimates for FY 2014-2015 did not include potential effects of national insurance reform. Any negative impacts from rising flood insurance cost wont affect property values until at least FY 2015-2016. Bottom line, the budget forecast indicates that the current level of service paid for from the general fund is not sustainable, LaSala said. Recommended ways to balance the budget include reducing or eliminating programs; evaluating compensation options, using return on equity for enterprise funds, increasing the millage rate or use of money held in the service level continuation account, which has a current balance of $10.7 million. It will be 20 years before we get back to where we were in gross revenue, LaSala said, admitting that his projection could be off by a few years. He said the burying power of the dollar had been eroded with 20 years of inflation to take into account. LaSala also pointed out that as unemployment drops, pressure on wages would go up and affect the supply and demand of talent. Our ability to keep people we have and need becomes more of a challenging compounded by the retirement of the baby boomers, he said.Emergency medical services fundVeronica Ettel, senior financial management and budget analyst, presented the forecast for emergency medical services. The EMS fund is not in balance, she said. The budget forecast shows a gap of $3.4 million in FY 2015 with reserves down to 25 percent below the amount required by Commission policy. If nothing changes, the reserve fund would be gone by FY 2018. Millage rate increases would be needed to provide the same level of services. Staff is counting on implementing a consultants recommendations to alleviate the strain on the EMS budget. LaSala said staff was working on translating the Fitch report and would bring recommendations to the commission on Feb. 4. He said after receiving direction, staff would begin work with municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services. The contract with Paramedics Plus to operate the Sunstar ambulance service expires in 2014. It can be extended to 2015. The contract will go out for bid in 2016. The budget forecast includes a 4 percent increase for ambulance service. First responder costs are expected to go up by 5 percent.Transportation trust fundAnother problem spot is the transportation trust fund. Lyn Katare, management and budget analyst, told the commission that the fund is not in balance beginning in FY 2015 and projections show that the fund will run dry by FY 2019. Reasons include rising costs and decreasing revenues due to more fuel-efficient vehicles, Katare said. The budget gap increases in FY 2017 when the local option gas tax expires, unless the commission votes to continue the tax. She said to balance the budget, the commission might have to subsidize transportation with money from the general fund or reduce service.Other fundsLinda Benoit, management and budget analyst, said the water and funds would remain balanced as long as approved 2 percent rate increases continued annually through FY 2015. She said a new rate study would begin this year and a consultant would make recommendations to keep the funds in balance through future years. The solid waste fund also is in balance, although solid waste tipping fees and electricity sales have declined due to the slow economy. Bill Berger, interim director of the Office of Management and Budget, said the capital projects fund would remain in balance as long as staff effectively managed the timing of projects. Plans also include the use of interfund loans from the solid waste fund to address short-term shortfalls. Berger said the forecast did not assume renewal of Penny for Pinellas, which expires in 2020. He said if voter did not approve the tax for future years, money for infrastructure would have to come from the general fund.Budget processBerger talked about potential impacts to the forecast including new federal or state mandates, impact of flood insurance on property values, property tax exemptions, Save Our Homes impact, slower than expected economic growth, changes in the frequency and intensity of storms, utility rate increase and reauthorization of the penny, tourist and gas taxes. The outcome of the referendum on Greenlight Pinellas transportation tax also is on the list. Staff will monitor everything on the list and calculate the effect of any changes on the budget to keep the commission and the public up to date. The Office of Management and Budget officially kicks off the budget season Feb. 7. County departments must submit their strategic plans by Feb. 28. Operating budgets are due by March 17. The CIP budget is due by March 28. Public budget information sessions begin on April 17 with an update on strategic initiatives. Independent agencies will present their budgets on April 24.

He is currently a member of Clearwater Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center Collision and the Libertarian Party. He also has worked with a number of nonprofit groups.Why run for office?Jolly said he is running to fill the immeasurable void left in Congress and the county after Youngs death. This is what this race is all about to me, he said in response to a questionnaire sent to all candidates. Ive worked on behalf of our community and this congressional district for 20 years alongside our late Congressman, as he consistently found ways to grow high-tech and defense manufacturing jobs here at home, invest in transportation and infrastructure improvements that affect our quality of life, expand higher education opportunities, protect and nourish our beaches, and support our men and women in uniform. I got into this race because I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. I also believe I can bring together Republicans, Independent and Democrats to work together. Sink said, If you see a problem and think you can be part of the solution, you owe it to your community to step up and work to fix it. I am running because I am sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. Its time for Republicans and Democrats to come together to tackle the challenges that matter most to Pinellas County caring for our seniors and veterans, stopping the flood insurance rate spike, helping businesses grow jobs and protecting Medicare and Social Security. As a business leader and (former) Floridas chief financial officer, I put partisanship aside and worked across party lines to get things done. Its these bipartisan, results-oriented values that I will take to Congress to break the gridlock and get results for Pinellas. Overby said he is running because it gives him the opportunity to fight for my neighbors on the national level. I believe that with my knowledge of the community and my lifelong work in the area, I have a unique knowledge of how the laws Congress passes affects the everyday person, he said. Living and working under the regulatory burden imposed on working class citizens for so long, I am in a position to understand how to help my community.Candidates hope to accomplishJolly has three top priorities, creating jobs and growing our economy, repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a market-based solution, and replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Natural Disaster Insurance Program. Sink said the most important thing she wants to do in Congress is to be part of bringing folks together to focus on solving the challenges that matter most to Pinellas, like helping businesses grow jobs. And one of the most important challenges we face here in Pinellas is the flood insurance issue, she said. First, we need to stop the rate spike, but we also need a longer term solution that provides more accountability, transparency and affordability for homeowners. We also need to get Congress focused on protecting our seniors and veterans. I will fight to protect Medicare and Social Security end of discussion. And I want to make it easier for veterans to find jobs and get the benefits theyve earned. As a wife and daughter or Marines, this is very personal to me. Overby said he has short-term and long-term goals. In the short term, we plan to focus on simplifying the tax code, working on cutting federal waste, ending corporate welfare and working toward real immigration relief, he said. While I have long-term and short-term legislative goals, I have spent this campaign focused on goals that would have the greatest immediate impact. In general, my goals will always be to limit the size and scope of the federal government and to open up opportunities for workers and business owners alike.Best qualified candidateJolly said, Pinellas County and our nation deserve a leader who will work to create jobs and grow our local economy, lower taxes, cut wasteful spending, secure Americas borders, lower the national debt, replace Obamacare with free-market health care policy and respect our Constitution and Bill of Rights. I humbly believe I have the qualifications to step in on day one and be effective for the people of Pinellas County in Congress. Sink said, My commitment to solving problems is driven by my real world experience as a business leader, my service as Floridas Chief Financial Officer and as a contributor to our nonprofit community. In the private sector, I helped Florida families secure the resources they needed to pursue their dreams, and as CFO, I cut wasteful spending to make government do more with less and fought for consumer protections, especially those focused on seniors. My life has always been guided by bipartisan, results-oriented leadership, and its these values I will bring to Washington. Overby said, I am more qualified than my opponents because of both my time and experience in the private sector, which takes a vast understanding of not only existing legislation but preparedness for new legislation, and my time and experience working with this community. Not only do I understand better what is it like to live and work in this community far better than my opponents, I offer a vastly different vantage point on the issues and have the experience to offer solutions.Most pressing issuesJolly said the most pressing issues in Washington, D.C., that affect Pinellas County are the need to create jobs and grow our local economy, repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution, and replace the National Flood Insurance Program with a new Disaster Insurance Program. Additionally, I believe the Administration and Congress must balance the budget, he said. Sink said, Everywhere I go, homeowners and businesses tell me the flood insurance rate spike will put them at risk of losing their homes or businesses. This is yet another self-inflicted crisis Congress has refused to act on and Pinellas families will suffer if they cant put politics aside to solve the problem, she said. Sink said she had outlined several proposals to combat the flood insurance crisis. Protecting Pinellas seniors is also a top priority, she continued. As CFO, I worked to defend Floridas seniors from fraud and abuse and in Congress I will continue in those efforts. Social Security and Medicare are promises that have been made to our seniors and I am committed to being a strong advocate for preserving that promise. Overby said, Having been working with the community to build solutions and address concerns for the past year of this campaign, I have heard time and time again that jobs and the economy are the two biggest concerns. This is the reason I have chosen to go after the legislative reforms that I have. Unless we work toward reopening the small business sector, the people of this district will continue to suffer, he said.What should be done?Jolly said, I started and ran the Florida Federal Contractors Association to sustain and grow Pinellas defense, high-technology and manufacturing industry. We must protect these jobs by electing a member of Congress that understands the important contribution these companies make to job growth and our local economy. Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a market-based solution that solution should be able to address pre-existing conditions, protect policy owners from cancellation and allow children to remain on their parents policies until a later age just as the Affordable Care Act does, he said. Jolly proposes replacing the National Flood Insurance Program with a new National Disaster Insurance Program. The Administration and Congress should balance the budget, he said. Merely reducing the amount of the annual deficit does not constitute capturing additional revenue. An actual surplus would create an opportunity to consider additional investment in services with a reduction of the tax burden imposed on individuals and businesses. Sink said, I will work to bring Republicans and Democrats together to focus on the challenges that Pinellas families are facing. Its through bipartisan, commonsense problem solving that we will break through the gridlock and get things done. Those are the values that I have built my career on and its those values I will take to Washington. Overby said, I am working on solutions that would make doing business easier and allow the small business sector to grow. Through tax reform, removal of red tape and clearing the way for small business owners to operate more freely I can help give my community relief from some of their biggest concerns.About the electionThe last day to register to vote in the March 11 special Congressional election or one of the 12 municipal elections is Monday, Feb. 10.

Copyright 2014012314 SEMINOLE Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church held its Golden Jubilee Jan. 9, celebrating 50 years of ministry in the Seminole area. Guest speakers at the event included Mayor Leslie Waters and Rev. Dr. Nancy Kahaian, head official for the 71 churches in the Presbytery of Tampa Bay. After the special service, there was a display of historical items in Smead Hall. The church began as John Knox Presbyterian Church of Seminole on Sunday, Jan. 19, 1964. Services were held at 8:30 a.m. at the Seminole Elementary School under the pastorate of the Rev. Joseph W. Conyers Jr. Six months later, on July 20, 1964, the congregation held its first service in the new building at 11250 86th Ave. N. The Presbytery had purchased the five-acre site on the corner of 86th Avenue and 113th Street in 1961 and held the groundbreaking for this building, a fellowship hall to be temporarily used as the church sanctuary, on April 6, 1964. On May 16, 1965, the congregation, with 75 members, was formally organized and chose the name Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church. Rev. Bruce Smead was named pastor. He served this congregation for 22 years, from 1965 until he retired in April 1987. The building programs continued, with the addition of the four big classrooms and some storage areas, as well as two small rectangular buildings. One of these buildings is now the choir room and adjoining library. The other contains the main office, including the pastors study, the business office and the workroom. In 1975, the congregation decided to begin the fundraising and planning of the sanctuary, narthex and sacristy. On July 4, 1976, Lake Seminole Presbyterian Church combined the dedication of the churchs sanctuary with the celebration of the nations bicentennial. Congressman C.W. Bill Young was the guest speaker at the event. When Rev. Smead retired in 1986, Rev. William Davis was called to serve at LSPC in 1988. Rev. Davis and his family came from Dubuque, Iowa, and were affiliated with the church until 2003. During this time, in 1991, Rev. Durl Odom brought his congregation from Kirk of the Lake Presbyterian Church (Bardmoor area) to join congregations, and served as assistant pastor for one year. After 15 years, Rev. Davis retired from ministry at LSPC in 2003. In the winter of 2005, Rev. Robert Wierenga accepted the offer to serve as the pastor of LSPC. His installation was held Sept. 25, 2005. Prior to this, his family had spent 10 years as missionaries, first in Costa Rica, then in Venezuela. He holds a doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary and hails from Michigan.

Offer Expires April 30, 2014012314 More than just a day at the zooMom takes a revitalizing day to reconnect with her daughtersAs I watched my two little girls ages 8 and 9 circling around on the Jungle Carousel at the Lowry Park Zoo, I had a thought. Can a day get any better than this? It was such an indescribable feeling, sitting there watching my daughters have fun and not worrying about anything else. The girls were so excited when I said we were going to go to Lowry Park Zoo. They couldnt wait because they hadnt been there in years and loved seeing all of the animals. I couldnt wait because it brought back memories of me taking them when they were younger. It reminded me of days when we could just get in the van and go on a whim. This was before we had restrictions like school and work. Since the girls were babies, two of my favorite places for a day trip were Lowry Park Zoo and Busch Gardens. I think the reason we liked these two attractions was because we love animals, and because we could travel there in less than an hour. I love going to the zoo, because you dont have to pay to park, and the admission price is reasonable. Since the last time we went, they even included most of the rides for free; in the past you had to pay for each ride. We would go to Busch Gardens because they had a preschool pass program where kids could get in free until they were 5 years old. I loved walking them in their stroller. It was great exercise! As they got older, they would walk. Now they run! Our recent trip just brought back so many wonderful memories. Not only memories of the zoo itself, but the people who shared the experiences with us. While we were driving there, we thought about all the different people who went with us, including grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. I realized so many times as parents, we get caught up in our everyday lives. I know I do. Even at the zoo, my phone went off with a text from work. Of course, I started texting back immediately, but youll never guess what happened. My battery that was charged just died. The phone just stopped working. I couldnt text back. I knew it was a sign that I needed to not be thinking about work and re-focus back on why I was there. We need to take time and have quality time with our kids. I needed to do this without distractions. My kids missed that, and I did too. I probably missed it more than them. My kids and I had a blast. The weather was one of Floridas gorgeous sunny days, but not too hot just right in temperature. Even though the parking lot was full, the zoo wasnt crowded. We were able to see everything we wanted to see and not have to wait too long for anything. The only ride we waited more than 20 minutes was the Expedition Africa Guided Safaris, which is an 18-minute tour of the animals on a trolley. On the other rides, like the Jungle Carousel and the Tasmanian Tiger Family Roller Coaster, the waits were minimal. The fun part was going on these rides with the girls. Yes, I evenPhoto by KADI HENDRICKS TUBBSGraci, left, and Randi Kay Tubbs enjoy the roller coaster at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. went on the roller coaster, and I am not one for roller coasters. I asked my girls what the best part of the day was and they said they couldnt pick just one part. They said everything was great! I had to agree. For me this day refreshed and revitalized me as a mom and built on the good memories I already have with my daughters.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

PETERSBURG The Rowdies recently named Perry Van Der Beck general manager of the St. Petersburg-based North American Soccer League franchise. A captain of the 1980 United States Olympic soccer team and 1984 U.S. Soccer Player of the Year, Van Der Beck began his professional career with the Rowdies in 1978, when he was the first player in NASL history to be drafted out of high school. He has held leadership positions with the Tampa Bay Mutiny and the Tampa Bay Terror, and recently served as the executive vice president, technical director and director of player development for the Rowdies. Perry is the perfect man to lead the Rowdies into this new era, said club owner and chairman Bill Edwards. His personal history with the team, along with his passion, vision and proven track record at developing young talent, will help him build a perennial winner here in Tampa Bay. Together we will do great things for the club and our community. I am thrilled to have this opportunity, said Van Der Beck. The Rowdies organization has held a special place in my heart for the last 35 years, and were blessed with the most boisterous, enthusiastic fans in all of NASL. We captured the Soccer Bowl Championship in 2012, and my entire staff is focused on returning the championship trophy to Tampa Bay where it belongs. I look forward to helping Bill Edwards create not just the best on-field soccer team, but the best fan experience anywhere in the country. Van Der Beck has earned industry-wide acclaim as one of the premier developers of new soccer talent. From 1988 to 1994, Van Der Beck was a star player and assistant coach for the Tampa Bay Rowdies, and also made 23 appearances for the U.S. National Team. Among his many individual awards are 1984 U.S. Player of the Year and captain of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. During the 2003-04 season, Van Der Beck was a staff coach with the Adidas Elite Soccer Program, which identifies the nations best high school players and coaches them in a weeklong training program. From 2004 to 2006, he was head coach and technical director of the Olympic Development Program for the Super Y League, a National Youth League. The Rowdies were the first professional sports franchise in the area and remain one of the most recognizable and well-loved brands in soccer. Originally established in 1975, the team won the NASL Soccer Bowl championship in its inaugural year and created a unique, entertaining and memorable franchise with the Fannies, Wowdies and unforgettable Kick in the Grass theme song. In 2008, a group of investors announced the purchase of rights to a professional soccer franchise and the newly established team began play in 2010. In 2012, the Rowdies won the NASL Soccer Bowl Championship after a thrilling shoot-out victory in front of a sold out crowd at Al Lang Stadium in downtown St. Petersburg.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563I was still very cold in St. Augustine early on the 14th day of Christmas, as I edited this Florida Perspectives column. Scanning the Weather Channel website, even Tampa, my new other favorite Florida city, registered in the upper mid-30s. But, as the warm-up continues, its my good fortune to be a native of the Sunshine State, aka Paradise. I doubt that those residents with allegiance to The Florida State University noticed the cold at all on Monday or Tuesday nights or, even this morning. Theyre still celebrating their season-ending joy winning the BCS National Championship in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on Twelfth Night. I am sure that the most-worn apparel on flights outbound Tuesday to Florida screamed garnet and gold. And, I say that while proudly wearing my Florida Gators orange and blue. (We will get back there, Gators, eventually). But, today is not about gridiron championships. Its about the start of the second season for public school students. Competition in the classroom heats up student by student, grade by grade, school by school, county by county. Its the season of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, aka FCAT. In late February, FCAT Writing tests are given. Mid-April to early May, its FCAT testing in reading, math and science. FCAT results are high-stakes competition for students, teachers, and administrators. St. Johns County School Superintendent Joe Joyner knows that. This district has been Number One overall or, shared the honor, this past decade. (Given the districts success, we know why Joyner was a potential lieutenant governor candidate last fall. Wisely, he thanked Gov. Rick Scott for the honor but declined further consideration.) In his weekly report to educators, parents and the general public, Joyner noted the upcoming testing. As is customary following the winter break, we will now focus on academic progress leading up to testing and assessment for all grades, he said. This culminates with opportunities for our students to show the skills and knowledge that they have acquired throughout the entire year. I encourage you to make note of district-wide testing dates on the 2013-2014 Master Calendar to ensure that you can plan and help your child prepare for success! If you havent heard the testing message in your own district, or missed it, check for yourself. Student success starts at home. Strong parental support for learning, a good nights sleep and a good breakfast for the students counts heavily. Business operators, who employ students, should also take note when it comes to their work schedules. Student success is our responsibility, because it reflects on their futures, our teachers and our schools.Margo C. Pope is a former editorial page editor of The St. Augustine Record.LETTERS The sad decline of TIME magazineDo you remember what TIME magazine used to be like? I do, but Im older than most Americans. That means I can recall when journalism stood for providing information, much more than entertainment or titillation. In 1959, in Rome, I was with some students from Syracuse University. One of them said, Over here, I cant get my weekly copy of TIME. How am I gonna know what to think? Many Americans felt the same way. Even if you didnt agree with TIMEs moderately right-wing position on issues, you could feel that after spending an hour or two with the latest issue of TIME you were up to date on most of the major national and world news stories. TIME had correspondents scattered throughout the world. Publisher Henry Luce was a force to be reckoned with. Each week TIME furnished its readers with reams of content, i.e., words and sentences. It also supplied photos and artwork that complemented the stories without overwhelming them. The magazine seemed to be aimed at intelligent, concerned adults. Over the past half-century, that has changed. I wont bore you with a detailed chronology. Ill just describe some aspects of recent TIME issues. On the plus side, you can still find a few detailed, well-written stories about important public figures and vital problems the USA and the rest of the world are grappling with. The Jan. 20 issue featured a cover story on Janet Yellen, the incoming chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve system and the first woman ever to hold that job. Another story dealt with the resurgence of Iraqs Al-Qaeda forces. There was a guest column by a Christian-magazine editor about end-of-life decisions that often must be made for or by critically ill persons. Columnist Joe Klein (probably the main reason I still subscribe to TIME) wrote about income inequality. The rest of the issue contained a scattering of brief stories that might be described as significant. Or not. Im no authority on magazine publishing, but it seems to me that every serious news journal has at least two or three crucial decisions to make for each issue. (1) Which stories do we choose to run? (2) How much space do we give to each story? (3) How do we display the magazines total content news, photos, advertisements, headlines? Today TIMEs weekly decisions on those matters baffle me. With only a limited amount of room in each issue, how can the editors justify devoting a two-page spread in the Jan. 20 issue to the photo of an infant being lifted from the rubble of a recent air attack in Damascus? A similar profligate use of precious space was a full-page inside photo of Janet Yellen (whom we had already seen on the cover), facing an opposite page whose total content was forty superfluous words whose message could have been captured in a single paragraph of running text. In the Culture section we were treated to not just one, but two full-page photos of Hollywood celebrity Spike Jonze. To which any thinking reader might cry out, Why? A twoinch mug shot would have done the same job, thus freeing up room for a thousand words of text. TIMEs philosophy of space allocation can be seen in the squeentsy semi-agate art captions that practically shout to subscribers past age 70, If you cant read this tiny type, the hell with you. Young people can, and they have the most money. Theyre the ones our advertisers want to reach. The worst example of space allocation in the Jan. 20 issue was a five-page spread on an exercise program called Crossfit something all America has been begging to learn about, dont you know? After thumbing through the issues inexplicable mish-mash, I asked myself, Why do you subscribe to TIME? I have no ready answer. I can get most of the news I need from The Week magazine, the Internet, and other easily available sources. Several mornings each week, as I wake up, I reach out for my Kindle. I switch it on and, for 50 cents or a buck, order the days edition of the Boston Globe, New York Times or Tampa Bay Times. A few seconds later Im awash in news from around the world. In fairness to the people who write and publish TIME, I must concede that dozens of good reasons may exist for the many changes to the once-worshipped magazine. In any age, the news business is a shifting, competitive, dog-eat-dog way to earn a buck while staying alive. High on the list of any publications headaches is the unpredictable nature of the publics preferences. Plus columns like this one, whining and kvetching because life aint like it used to be.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.Kudos to music that gives us pauseIt was a time when great songwriters told us about tin soldiers and Nixon coming and reminded us that the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls. Whether putting flowers in gun barrels helped change the world in the 1960s is debatable, but the messages in the music of those turbulent times sent powerful messages, gave us pause. And that music still does. In a daydream, I wondered whats happened to protest music and songs that spoke about social consciousness. Certainly, world events continue to cry for more of such works the U.S. government shutdown, instability in the Middle East, war in Afghanistan, Edward Snowden, among other issues. I dont hear it, at least not on my radio stations. Flash back to the s and s. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, among my favorite musical groups, gave us Ohio, about the killing and wounding of students by soldiers during an antiwar protest at Kent State University. Along those lines is Chicago, written by Graham Nash in response to Mayor Richard Daleys shameful handling of riots during the Democratic Convention in Chicago in 1968 and other issues. I always liked Credence Clearwater Revivals Fortunate Son, an anti-Vietnam War song critical of class discrepancies. The song was played during a war scene in the movie Forrest Gump and fit nicely onto the soundtrack.We had Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez. Remember the Eve of Destruction? It was made famous by Barry McGuire, who performed rock, folk and contemporary Christian music. John Lennons Imagine, with its enduring theme of peace and love, is listed as No. 3 on Rolling Stones 500 greatest songs of all time. Im sure youve heard it. Didnt check to see if any music by his other half, Yoko Ono, made the list, though. My favorite songwriter is Paul Simon. The works of Simon and Garfunkel in the 1960s are unsurpassed in their themes about the downtrodden, dispossessed and neglected, such as the Sound of Silence. Who can forget the classic verse from the song Mrs. Robinson: Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio? Yes, hes gone, but Im glad Paul Simon is still around. In the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen, Born in the USA, and U2, Sunday, Bloody Sunday, produced some stirring protest songs. Also one of my favorites is Midnight Oils Beds are Burning, a song about giving native Australian lands back to the Pintupi, who were among the very last people to come in from the desert, according to the website SongFacts. Im hard pressed to think of any renowned songs inspired by war, politics or other significant issues that were produced in the last decade. A cursory search on the Internet gave some insight. This, from New York Times music writer James C. McKinley Jr. in 2011, capsulizes my line of thinking: So far, musicians living through the biggest economic disaster since the Great Depression have filled the airwaves with songs about dancing, not the worries of working people, he wrote. Is it because the great icons of dissent from bygone eras are too far removed from current forms of expression and communication to make an impact on the current generation of songwriters? Folk singers have been revered for their social commentary, such as Pete Seeger, the author of Where Have All the Flowers Gone, and Turn, Turn, Turn. But Seegers era, the 1950s, is long past. Perhaps, too, many of us as true of any generation are reluctant to embrace newer forms of music. Im about as flexible as Stonehenge. However, while searching for articles about recent examples of provocative protest music, I came across rap artist Pharoahe Monchs tribute song to Trayvon Martin called Stand Your Ground, an effort to repeal the law used to protect George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Martin. Kudos to Monch, known as a socially conscious musician, for delivering what Huffpost Live calls a potent, hard song that decries the verdict through a sound somewhere between punk rock and hip-hop. Whether I agree with the verdict in the case is immaterial here. What I applaud is any artists earnest attempt to help bring about change or at least make us think. Hail to musicians who write songs that dare to disturb the sound of silence.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tger mond@TBNweekly.com.

Margo Pope Student success starts at home Tom Germond Drivers SeatBob Driver An aberration of historical factsRe: Editorial cartoon, Jan. 23.Editor: The Star of David prominently placed in the heavens with a dedication to Ariel Sharon 1928-2014 was meant by the cartoonist to celebrate the life of General and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. There are a number of Jewish academicians who agree that Sharon is the man responsible for destroying any hope of a viable Palestinian state with the destruction of hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages and with the introduction of Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands, ergo, sabotaging any peace treaty between representatives of all Palestinians and of all Israelis. Sharons military incursion into Beirut allowed the massacre by Lebanese Christians of over one thousand Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila camps of southern Beirut in September of 1982. He was found indirectly guilty by an Israeli Commission. These famous academicians are: Prof. Ilan Pappe and Prof. Avi Shlaim (two Israeli historians), Prof. Noam Choamsky, Prof. Norman Finkelstein, and Prof. John J. Mearsheimer, educators and authors all. To praise Sharon as a shining star is an aberration of historical facts which the cartoonist should have known. Arthur Hebert LargoHeed words of Lawrence of ArabiaEditor: I fear the muted din echoing in the distance is emanating once more from the drums of war being beat by those urging Americas military involvement in the mid-East. With this in mind it seemed an opportune moment to revisit an article I wrote which was printed elsewhere a few years ago. The message is still pertinent today, and perhaps even more so in view of the fact we still find ourselves bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan with no real satisfactory conclusion in sight. In my letter I cautioned against ignoring the lessons of history when making decisions, especially when those decisions involve military commitment. In order to add emphasis and lend authority to my message I quoted a chillingly prescient article written by Col. T.E. Lawrence. It was sent from Arabia and subsequently published in the London Times in 1920. Quoting the author he wrote, The people of England have been led in Iraq into a trap from which it is hard to escape with dignity and honor. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. Things have been far worse than we have been told, our administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. Today, we are not far from disaster. The writer then went on to explain the difficulty of trying to impose western style democracy on nations to whom the concept itself was foreign, and which in many instances violated their religious beliefs. Taking liberty here, it is my contention he was including in this admonition all Arab and Muslim nations. Resuming the quote he went on to argue, How long will we permit millions of pounds, thousands of troops and tens of thousands of Arabs to be sacrificed on behalf of a colonial administration which can benefit nobody but its administration? It is fair to say in view of what has transpired in the past few years that Lawrence of Arabia knew that of which he spoke. Unfortunately, we (Americans) have turned a deaf ear to his message, or for that matter to the messages of anyone proffering similar arguments in protest of our actions. Will we ever learn to listen, or more importantly, listen to learn? Robert A. Shaw Madeira Beach

Most often when we speak of success it is material possessions and fame. However, success can very much be a volunteer who gives of their time to those in need but no one ever hears about. It can be a mother or father who gave up their own dreams to invest in their children. A single parent who stayed and worked several jobs to make sure their family did not go without. The person who gives beyond their means to help another. My conclusion is the heart determines the success of a person. I do not believe success can or should be measured by things. Success is an inside job. If you give your very best to your passion, your mission, your lifes work, then you are successful. Do not let anyone or anything tell you otherwise. Be your SUCCESS today!This article was provided by Laura Morelli, an orthopedic specialist at The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers, 1660 Gulfto-Bay Blvd, Clearwater.How do you measure success? Is it the car you drive, the house or neighborhood you live in? Maybe the degree you hold or the career path you chose? For others, maybe a club status or choosing the right life partner, fulfilling a dream? This question I believe has endless possibilities. For each and everyone of us most definitely a different answer. You see, it is all a matter of perspective. What one views as success may be very, very different for another. It is truly whatever you put your whole heart into. If an education and awesome career path is your heart, then go for it all the way. If there is a dream youve been dreaming, then work hard to make that dream a reality! Every bit of it is For your healthLaura Morelli State DOH announces new healthiest weight snapshotsThe Florida Department of Health has rolled out a new resource providing the first comprehensive healthiest weight profile for each of the states 67 counties. This new tool provides an important view of the progress in each of our counties as we work to become the healthiest state in the nation, said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. The County-Level Healthiest Weight Snapshots tool is a part of the Community Health Assessment Resource Tool Set and features information designed to assist families, health care professionals, policy makers and whole communities to help Floridians achieve a healthy weight. To find profiles per county, visit www.floridacharts.com/charts/default.aspx and click on the healthiest weight profile link. Information by county is available in the dropdown menu. To find the rates of overweight and obese adults in the Tampa Bay area, check the data for Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco. In Pinellas, about 42 percent of adults are overweight and 24 percent are obese. In Hillsborough, 39 percent of adults are overweight and 25 percent are obese. Pascos rate of overweight residents is 36 percent, with 31 percent of adults classified as obese. The tool includes demographic, behavioral and built environment measures relating to the communitys healthy weight status, and may be used to support community health assessments, provide data for health and weight related research and encourage communities to continue their efforts to improve nutrition and increase physical activity. Healthiest Weight Florida is a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, not for profit organizations, businesses and entire communities to help Floridas children and adults make consistent, informed choices about healthy eating and active living.

Fielden Bruce Odell, 31, of Seminole was driving a 2003 Dodge Ram at the time of the crash about 7:40 a.m. Nov. 20. He was traveling southbound on 71st Street North approaching 50th Avenue North when he attempted to pass another southbound vehicle. According to FHPs report, Odell over-corrected and traveled back across the roadway. The truck rotated clockwise before traveling into a culvert, becoming airborne, then overturning before finally colliding with a utility pole. When the vehicle overturned, Odell was ejected from the vehicle. He suffered minor injuries and was transported to Bayfront Medical Center. Odells passenger, Benjamin Jacob Staker, 34, of Kenneth City died at the scene. Odell was charged with vehicular homicide and ticketed for no seatbelt. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail Jan. 21 and released the same day on $10,000 bond. According to jail reports, Odell was booked two times in 2007 and once in 2010 on domestic battery charges.Skateboard bandit caughtCLEARWATER A suspect in the skateboard-riding Target thief case was arrested on Jan. 22, according to a Clearwater police report. David Ahmaal Aziz Kennedy has been charged with robbery with a deadly weapon because he allegedly showed a knife when store employees encountered him near the doors, the report said. Kennedy was identified as the suspect in the Jan. 15 robbery of the Super Target at 2747 Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard when police say he went into the store one minute before closing, grabbed a 32-inch flat-screen TV and fled the store on a skateboard. Surveillance video was released after the robbery that showed the suspect skating through the store with the TV in his possession and also showed him fleeing Target on the skateboard, the police report said. The video was posted on the Clearwater Police Department Facebook page, where more than 15,000 people viewed it. Apparently one of those views was Kennedy himself, who said a friend told him that he should check out the video, the police report said. He did not, however, admit to detectives that it was him in the video or that he robbed the store. Kennedy, 30, lives in Clearwater and his arrest record shows that he has been arrested at least 18 times in Pinellas since 2010, according to the Pinellas County Sheriffs site. His most recent arrest prior to this one was on Jan. 9 on a grand theft charge, police say. He was released from jail on that charge on Jan. 14, and the Target robbery was the next day, the report said. He was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.Two sent to hospital in crashCLEARWATER Two people were taken to the hospital after a crash on the morning of Jan. 22 at Martin Luther King Jr. and Laura streets. A pickup flipped over after colliding with an SUV at the intersection, according to a Clearwater Police report. Two people from the SUV were taken to the hospital for treatment of what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries. Clearwater Fire and Rescue workers extradited the patients from the vehicle. One of the members of the department hung out with a little girl who had been in the vehicle but was uninjured, the police report said. He sat with her and offered her a stuffed animal as he tried to explain what was happening as she watched her family members be rescued and treated.

A series of unexpected adventures including, getting kicked out of a strip club, being mugged and getting pummeled by the Las Vegas reigning gelatin-wrestling champion, Veronica, rip them from the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas strip and places them smack dab in Vegas seedy underbelly. Determined to keep their bachelorette party dreams alive, the girls band together and embark on the wildest night in bachelorette party history. Fueled by sex and booze, this raunchy, riotously hilarious, out-of-control, blowout is, for better or worse, all caught on tape. And is destined to go down as the Best Night Ever.Tims VermeerGenre: Documentary Director: Raymond Joseph Teller Rated: PG-13 Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) manage to paint so photo-realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning eight years, Jenisons adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen.At MiddletonGenre: Romance Cast: Andy Garcia, Vera Farmiga, Taissa Farmiga, Spencer Lofranco, Nicholas Braun, Peter Riegert and Tom Skerritt Director: Adam Rodgers Rated: R Academy Award nominees Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga star as straight-laced George and eccentric Edith, two strangers who meet on their childrens campus tour at the idyllic Middleton College. Failing comically to connect with their kids, George and Edith play hooky together, ditching the official tour for a carefree adventure reminiscent of their own college years. But what begins as an afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever. A light-hearted romance for adults on the surface, At Middleton is a deeply moving portrait of roads not taken and the timelessness of youth.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly .com.

In between touring the world with Bon Jovi, Lenny Kravitz, Brian May of Queen, The Cranberries and Van Hunt, Vintage Trouble has headlined smaller venues creating a raucous energy that captivates the audience and turns clubs and pubs into wild late night parties. The band released its debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions, in 2011. Savoy Brown was formed in London in 1965 by guitarist Kim Simmonds. Originally a UK version of a Chicago blues band, the group developed into a classic and highly original rock band but always managed to keep its blues roots intact. The bands 1967 debut, Shakedown, helped launch the British blues boom. Savoy Brown continued to find commercial success as a blues band in the 1970s with albums such as Hellbound Train. The band will release a new album, Goin to the Delta, in February. More blues on the billWidely regarded as one of worlds very best female guitarplayers, Ana Popovics career has been meteoric, and shows no signs of slowing down. The Serbian-born musician has become one of the most lauded blues guitarists on the circuit. Popovic moved to Memphis to capture the citys greasy Stax sound, record at Ardent Studios, and play with its finest musicians. Albert King and WAR equally inspire her 2013 LP Can You Stand The Heat. The most impressive aspect of her music is her diversity of techniques and styles. Her blend of smoking electric funk slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals, tight blues groove, soulful feminine vocals and her incredible stage presence makes her an irresistible force in the music world. Born in 1969, Eric Lindell is an American singer-songwriter who came to national prominence after relocating to New Orleans in 1999. His recording career began in 1996 as a local/regional New Orleans-based artist. Beginning in 2006, when Alligator Records picked him up, he began touring nationally and internationally. He recorded three albums for Alligator and has since issued several CDs on smaller indie labels. Like the legendary female singers she most admires Etta James, Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin, and Aretha Franklin Lauren Mitchell gives audiences everything she has and then some. From her roots singing in the churches of Ohio, to the southern blues and rock scene throughout Florida, Mitchell has honed her craft by singing her heart out in hundreds of honkytonks and blues halls along the way. Her distinctive brand of full-throttle, all-or-nothing stage performances leave audiences begging for more.

It would be difficult to overstate Crays impact on rock, rhythm and blues since the release of his 1980 album debut Whos Been Talkin. Over the course of his career, Cray has invited listeners along on his epic musical journey breaking through the pop ceiling with his gate crashing/bluesedged trademark sound, distinct playing style and daring innovations. Vintage Trouble will bring their stage stealing rock, soul and blues infused performance to the festival. Boasting four guys with a passion for music and a ton of soul, Vintage Trouble has won over entire continents, bringing an unSee SEA-BLUES, page 8B

Kansas City-based Samantha Fish has been on a roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Rufs 2011 release, Girls with Guitars. Fueled by the trios Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the United States, and the international buzz it created in the blues world, Fish recorded Runaway, her solo debut on Ruf, which mixed gutsy riff-blues rockers like Down In The Swamp with the mellow small-hours jazz of Feelin Alright, while marinating her songwriting in the groove of the Rolling Stones and even tipping a hat to Heart. Hitting a receptive international blues and rock press, Runaway was hailed as a thrilling opening statement, earning a string of rave reviews and radio airplay, climaxed by her winning the Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Debut in 2012. Fish followed up Runaway last September, unleashing her trademark guitar work and soulful vocals on the new album Black Wind Howlin. Rather than trying to duplicate what she accomplished on her first success, Fish re-defines her sound throughout the tracks on Black Wind Howlin. She can be brutally rocking on cuts like the tour bus snapshot of Miles To Go, the swaggering Sucker Born and the venomous Go To Hell. Born in 1991 in St. Louis, Mo., Marquise Knox hails from a musical family deeply entrenched in the blues. SEA-BLUES, from page 4BHe learned how to play guitar from his grandmother Lillie whose family members were sharecroppers and whose great, great grandparents were slaves. He also played with his Uncle Clifford, who was a major influence in Knoxs life. For Knox, blues is his heritage and a way of life. He spent his early teenage years in St. Louis mentoring under the late great blues legend, N.E.A. Heritage Fellowship recipient and Grammy Award winner Henry James Townsend. Knoxs talents have earned him performing rights with some of Americas most notable blues performers such as blues legend and Grammy Award winners B.B. King, Pinetop Perkins and David Honeyboy Edwards. He has also performed at dozens of festivals, and has toured Germany and played the Baden Blues Festival in Switzerland.

A&E newsMUSE@MFA event to benefit arts programsST. PETERSBURG The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance will present MUSE@MFA on Friday, Jan. 31, at the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE. Tickets for MUSE@MFA start at $100 a person. A cabaret table for four is $500. Sponsorship packages are available. For information, visit stpeteartsalliance.org. During MUSE@MFA, guests will be immersed in a pARTy, infused with interactive digital art, pop-up performances, and artful dinner courses. The voices and influence of local artists will be featured throughout the evening. This creatively charged event will ask the question, Who inspires your creativity? The presentation of two inaugural MUSE Awards will shine a spotlight on those who inspire others. The MUSE Arts Award will recognize a literary, performing, or visual St. Petersburg artist who is a stellar representative of St. Petersburg. The Muse Peoples Choice Art Award will recognize an outstanding individual artist or arts organization, determined by popular acclaim using social media platforms. Proceeds will benefit Arts Alliance programs supporting artists and arts and cultural organizations. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is the only 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising money and advocating for the entire creative community arts and cultural organizations in St. Petersburg including theatre, music, museums, artists and creative businesses.Monthly Cabaret night setDUNEDIN Gypsy Stage Repertory Company and the Showcase Arts Foundation Inc (SAFI) will hold a monthly Cabaret night with an open mic element on the last Thursday of each month. The first Cabaret will be held Thursday, Jan. 30 at the SAFI theater space, 1714 CR 1, Suite 2. The hostess of these events will be Tamara Spiri, a singer who has opened for comedians Jackie Mason and Nipsy Russell. Spriri has sung everywhere from small cabaret venues with only a pianist to major venues fronting an 18-piece orchestra. There will be a PA provided and members of the Gypsy Stage will also perform some songs and sketch comedy. Other performers are encouraged to come and sign up for a performance slot, first come first served. Anything goes from music to comedy. There is a suggested donation of $5 at the door. Artistic Director Lil Barcaski said, This is going to be a real happening every month. The $5 suggested donation and funds raised from snacks and libations will help with expenses and overhead for our little theater space and training facility while raising awareness of our organization. I am so looking forward to our first Cabaret on Jan. 30. I may even sing a song or two. For more information, call Barcaski at 348-6682.
