Osceola was in control for more than three quarters of the game holding a 2-0 lead with only 12 minutes left to play. Thats when Seminoles offense turned up the heat, scoring twice within a minute and the go-ahead goal with only six seconds left to play. Final score: Seminole 3, Osceola 2.

Candidates debate the issuesObamacare, flood insurance and immigration reform were among the variety of topics By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE Monday night, Republican David Jolly, Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby attended a byticket-only debate in the Digitorium of St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus. The three candidates are running for a chance to serve Pinellas County in the U.S. House of Representatives in a special election March 11. The winner will fill the position left vacant when longtime Rep. C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Young served District 13 in congress for more than 40 years. The debate, a special edition of Political Connections, broadcast on Bay News 9, was the result of a partnership between SPC, Bay News 9 and the Tampa Bay Times. The event was sponsored by AARP. The debate was moderated by the Times political editor Adam C. Smith, Times assistant managing editor Amy Hollyfield and Bay News 9 senior anchor Al Ruechel. Write-in candidate Michael Levinson did not attend. The nights event was fastpaced with a variety of topics covered in what was described as lightning rounds, where single word answers were preferred. Other questions allowed candidates 30 to 60 seconds to make their case. An opening statement started things out. Jolly told viewers that he had spent 20 years working at the side of the late Rep. Young. He said he wants to continue Youngs work to empower families to make their own decisions. He favors less taxes and less regulation. He stressed that he is a Pinellas County native. He was born in Dunedin and now lives in Indian Shores. Overby said when he began to campaign for a seat in Congress a year ago, he did so to bring people who are disenfranchised with the process back into the fold. He said if elected, he would have a chance to bring the peoples concerns to a larger stage. He said he agreed with some of the priorities of his opponents, but there were grave differences between the three. Sink said she was sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. She wants to end partisanship to get things done. She said she is an experienced businesswoman who served as the states chief financial officer and worked together to bring Democrats and Republicans together. She wants to fight to protect jobs, Social Security, veterans benefits and bring the voice of the people in Pinellas County to Washington.Lightning round questionsShould Florida accept federal money to expand Medicaid? Overby said yes; Sink said no. Jolly said not unless there is a guarantee the money cant be taken away. Should the federal government be required to have a balanced budget? Overby and Jolly said yes; Sink said no. Should the state allow medical marijuana? Jolly and Overby said no; Sink said yes, but added she did not support any program that would allow pot shops. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council approved the appointment of seven members to the Charter Review Committee one for each council member at its Jan. 28 meeting. Mayor Leslie Waters nominated Susan Berkowitz, an industrial engineer to the committee, while Vice Mayor Barnhorn nominated St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Provost Dr. James Olliver. Councilors Chris Burke, John Counts, Bob Matthews, Patricia Plantamura and Jim Quinn nominated Bob Castles, who has sat on the committee in the past; Ann Gardner of the Seminole Lake Country Club Estates Homeowners Association; Linda Cole, who sat on the committee previously; Chuck Oldanie of the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake; and Joe Haynes respectively. This is a very important committee, Waters said. It only convenes every five years and gives an overview, a look-see as to the relevance and appropriateness of our charter. Since 1999, Section 10.03 of the City Charter requires the council to appoint no less than five and no more than nine members to the committee every five years. The council should appoint at least one member who has previously sat on the committee. Waters suggested that each council member nominate one person for the committee, but Plantamura argued that the council should nominate the maximum number of members to encourage openness and citizen participation. I think appointing the maximum number of interested parties to serve, that is the number nine, is in the citys best interest in transparency and inclusiveness, she said. She pointed out that past Charter Review Committees have been composed of nine members. Barnhorn, however, expressed concerns about how theyd select the remaining two members of the committee. If only a couple of people on the council know that eighth person, its not necessarily a vote of council, he said. It needs to be a vote of council as a whole. He added, Its also been my experience that the more people you put on a committee, the longer it takes them to make a decision on any one thing, Features Business . . . . . . . . .10-11A Classieds . . . . . . . . .7-9B Community . . . . . . . . .14A County . . . . . . . . . . .6-8A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-6B Faith & Family . . . . . . . .16A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .9A Real Estate . . . . . . . . .15A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-5A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .17A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising The Mahaffey Theater welcomes the Pat Metheny Unity Group Feb. 9. ...

Prior to Youngs death, she was a longtime resident of Hillsborough County. She replied that when she considered running for District 13 seat, she asked herself, Do I share the values of the people of this district? My political values are very well aligned with Pinellas County, she said, adding that she had worked in Pinellas County for 25 years in the business community and her charitable work. Jolly said that Rep. Young By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Pinellas County voters in District 13 were left with plenty to talk about following the hour-long debate between Republican David Jolly, Libertarian Lucas Overby and Democrat Alex Sink at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Monday night. The three candidates are vying to fill the U.S. House of Representatives seat left vacant in that district when Rep. C.W. Bill Young died in October. The winner will be chosen in a March 11 special election. Several who were in the audience for the debate lauded the events fast-paced format, which featured a lightning round where single-word yes or no answers were encouraged and questions where candidates were given more time 30 to 60 seconds to respond. I have to commend the [debates] sponsors and moderators, said the Rev. Fr. Robert Swick, commander, JFK 1963 chapter and veterans advocate, of Dunedin. They worked hard to come up with an interesting format. Jeff Johnson, state director for AARP Florida, which sponsored the event, thought the format allowed for really good discussions on a variety of issues. He added, I think the moderators did a good job. They jumped around, but in a good way, and kept the pace up.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3A Photo courtesy of GENE STERNSeminole Lake Rotary Club named Osceola Fundamental High School students Ethan Grantges and Emily Harris as students of the month. Grantges, who has a GPA of 4.6, is a member of the National Honor Society and is on the principals list. He is also a member of the championship varsity swim team and volunteers at the St. Paul United Methodist Church Youth Group. He plans to attend the University of Central Florida where he will major in mechanical engineering. Harris, with a GPA of 4.4, has been on the Principals List and Honor Roll and has received Academic Letters for the past three years. She works at local childrens camps tutoring first graders struggling with reading skills. She also participates on the bowl, culinary and juggling teams. Recently accepted to Johnson & Wales Charlotte, she plans to earn a degree in culinary and food service management. Also pictured is principal Michael Bohnet.Students of the Monthhad taught every school group that visited his office that the House of Representatives was the peoples house, something he would continue to respect if elected. Alex wants to change Washington, I believe representation should be local, she said. Overby said he didnt think residency was a determining factor. A lot of Pinellas County people are interested in the concept, he said. He said he had spent a great deal of time working in the trenches, spending time in the community. When Sink was asked if she would stay in Pinellas if she lost the election, she said, Im not losing.ObamacareA member of the audience asked the candidates if they supported a repeal of Obamacare. Jolly said yes. He said Obamacare was founded on a premise that now is being called the lie of the year. He said it should be repealed and alternatives offered in its place. He said Obamacare was hurting Pinellas County residents and businesses. Overby said he was in favor of getting the cost of health care down. Some parts of Obamacare are good, he said. But there needs to be less focus on insurance and more on reduced costs. Sink said she believes that Americans have the right to health insurance and secondly affordable health care. Obamacare cant be repealed because we cant go back to where we were, she said. She said she knew people who were thrilled with Obamacare. She asked if it were right to go back to a time when people could be refused insurance due to pre-existing medical conditions or when seniors had more problems with access to health care. Jolly said the problems Sink mentioned could be fixed. I believe in less government, not more, he said. Overby said many of the arguments ongoing over healthcare and insurance dated back to the Clinton administration. He suggested getting insurance out of the way so work could be done to fix affordability.Flood insurance reformOverby said he supported the plan recently passed by the Senate to delay insurance rate hikes for four years to allow time to work on real solutions. He supports expanding the public option and more involvement by private insurers. Sink said she had reached out to insurance companies and agents as well as local Realtors. She said she offered four or five suggestions on her website. She favors looking for solutions now and exploring what can be done with the private sector instead of kicking the can down the road for four years. Jolly said Biggert-Waters flood reform is a bad law today and it will be a bad law in four years. He favors use of private insurance and diversifying the risk pool. The answer is not in Washington. The answer is in the private sector. It is in Tallahassee, he said. Sink reminded Jolly that the National Flood Insurance Program was started due to a lack of private insurers.Immigration reformSink and Overby said they support immigration reform and a path to citizenship as proposed by a bipartisan Senate plan. Overby said he does not support parts of the plan that are too expensive. Jolly does not support a path to citizenship. He said people who have broken the law should not be rewarded and suggested that something needed to be done about businesses that employ illegal workers. We cant insult those who have done it (became a citizen) legally, he said.Social SecurityOn the question of Social Security and Medicare benefits, Jolly admits something needs to be done; however, he does not support cutting benefits to those who are vested in the program. He defines vested as having worked for 40 quarters, or 10 years. He does not advocate long-term entitlement for those not now in the system. Overby did not favor Jollys approach. As a 27year-old, he asked who would end up paying. He said the plan would leave him without benefits. Jolly is 41 and Sink is 65. Overby favors other alternatives such as a voluntary program to drop out of the system as a charitable donation. He does not favor forcing people out. I will fight to support Medicare and Social Security, Sink said. She said she went on the program this year after paying in for 40 years. She said she didnt want to worry that her 25-year-old daughter would not have access to health care when she is 65.Student financial aidOne SPC student asked the candidates about what could be done to make education and financial aid more affordable. Overby said costs of education had gone up dramatically due in part to the subsidies. He said federal government should be less involved to allow colleges to become more competitive. Sink said it was important for government to continue to invest in the future and ensure students have access to student aid. Jollys plan ties the cost of education to the success of the school. Theyre offering a product to the students, he said.Other topicsJolly said he is OK with the states amendment on gay marriage because it is a matter between the partners and their God. Overby said he supports the ban. Sink said she supports gay marriage. Overby supports the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. Sink also is in support, but added more needed to be done to ensure adequate background checks. Jolly supports doing whatever must be done to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Sink supports raising the minimum wage. Overby is opposed. Jolly supports finding a suitable wage rate and then tying future raises to the cost index. On a local issue, Jolly and Overby oppose light rail in Pinellas County. Sink is in favor. The moderators brought up the subject of Jollys lobbyist activities against Social Security and for offshore drilling, which he said were not true. He said he worked to negotiate a ban against offshore drilling. He said he worked on a measure that would guarantee Social Security for everyone. The candidates were asked if there were things in which they disagreed with their party. Sink said she disagreed with Obamas plan to implement chain CPI, which would lower benefit amounts. Jolly said he disagrees with his partys handling of flood insurance reform and changes to Social Security. Overby said the Libertarian Party was often bullheaded and overzealous. He said he was trying to find solutions for all, not just one part of the population. Jolly and Overby oppose Common Core standards for education. Jolly believes education should be a decision made in the classrooms. Overby believes the closer education is to families the better. Sink believes standards are important to measure students who will be competing on a national and worldwide setting. The candidates were asked one question on foreign policy: Would they support more aggressive military action in Syria? Sink said no. I dont believe in putting more boots on the ground in a country where we dont understand the dynamics, she said. Jolly said yes. (Bashar) Assad used chemical weapons to kill people and children, he said. We should have intervened right away. Overby said no. He said he had talked to Syrians right after the incident. Syrians didnt want us interfering, he said. The U.S. going in and killing more people would not have helped. Other remarksWhichever candidate is elected will have a short time to serve before they are up for re-election again in November. Sink said she would spend her time working with FEMA on flood insurance. Jolly agreed with Sink that flood insurance reform should be a priority. But he added that constituent service had to be a major task. Young served for 43 years and he took care of Pinellas County, he said. Overby said he would focus on simplifying the tax code and getting taxes and spending down. If flood insurance is on a four-year hold, it can wait, he said. I want to make sure to keep as much money in the pockets of the people as possible. Sink said she wanted to go to Washington to be the voice for Pinellas County. I would be honored to serve as your congresswoman, she said. Overby said he had spent a year working with the community to find out what the people want. Im not part of the political machine, he said. Im not part of a party I have to answer to. I can do what the people want. Jolly said it was not easy to put yourself up before the public when you run for office. He said he would take his core values to Washington. I want less regulation and less taxes for the people in Pinellas County. For more information on the candidates, visit davidjolly.com, lucasoverby.com or alexforcongress .com. CANDIDATES, from page 1A CHARTER REVIEW, from page 1Aincluding how to spell the word the. I would give more confidence to the citizens of Seminole that there wouldnt be confusion, Plantamura said. She suggested putting names of volunteers in a hat and pulling them out to fill the remaining spots on the committee. Moving forward, the council will suggest areas for the committee to review and discuss prior to its first meeting, which has yet to be determined. In other action items, the council: Approved the use of Capital Improvement Project funds for the rehabilitation of storm water conveyance piping adjacent to Pineapple Road, 72nd Terrace, 121st Street and 112th Street. The city set aside $195,000 in CIP funds for the project, which will rehabilitate the failing pipes identified by the citys Public Works Department with a Cured in Place Pipe and minor joint repairs. The pipe restoration will cost the city $177,076. The city was able to piggyback on a Pinellas County contract with Layne Inliner LLC. To my memory, we havent spent money on storm water pipe lines in at least five years, Waters said. City Manager Frank Edmunds said that only spot repairs have been made in recent years.

Seminole City Councilor Chris Burke also commended the break from the usual debate format, particularly the lightning section. You didnt just get the candidates up there going, Blah blah blah, he said, which kept the audience more engaged. Of the many topics discussed, different issues resonated with different attendees. Camille Christian, a student at SPC, of Safety Harbor, was very interested in what the candidates had to say on the issue of financial aid for college and immigration law. But she was disappointed they didnt spend more time discussing legalizing marijuana. Corey Harpin of Clearwater agreed that student loans were a hot topic of the night. We need to reform the way funds are given out so students can afford to go to school, he said. But he wishes the candidates had spent more time discussing education reform overall. I have a 14-month-old son at home, he said. The decisions we make today are going to affect him. An operations manager at a manufacturing factory, Harpin also felt that the topic of expanding manufacturing jobs in the county and supporting small, local businesses should have been discussed. Though AARP members each have their own set of interests, all can appreciate discussions on social security, healthcare and Medicaid, Johnson said. But one question he thinks candidates should have answered at the debate: How can people currently working ever afford to retire? Its an important question to consider, he said, with pensions going away and an unstable economy. Burke wishes more time was spent on the goals for District 13. We didnt get any of their thoughts on the topic. Two issues stood out for Seminole City Councilor Patricia Plantamura: immigration reform and healthcare. Immigrants enrich both Americas culture and its economy, she said. Statistical data shows that immigrants are business creators. Theyre consumers. Theyre living in homes. Theyre a wonderful aspect of life in this country. She added, Its a non-partisan issue. Congress just needs to get it done. As for the candidates themselves, Burke felt there was no clear winner in the debate. Each candidate won on different topics, he said. Undecided on which candidate to support, he said he came to Mondays debate curious to see who they are and what they have to say. I liked David Jollys answer on being from Pinellas County, Burke said. I think he won on the local versus carpetbagging debate. As for Sink, she overstated her bipartisanship, Burke said, and lost time where she could have been more specific on various issues. He was also impressed by Overby, whom he didnt know much about prior to the debate. He was very well-spoken and informed on the issues, he said. Swick, a Democrat who supports Jolly, agrees. The young man, the libertarian, did a very fine job, he said. I liked his poise and his strength of fact. Everything he said was backed up by facts. He added, I didnt appreciate Sink. It seemed like she was hogging up the time. Christian, initially an undecided voter, didnt know much about any of the candidates prior to the debate. I thought all three candidates had something good to say, she said. But now she supports Sink, she said. She seemed very sincere and I appreciated that she shared her personal experiences. Harpin was also undecided going into the debate and left it fairly confident that he will vote for Sink. I really liked her, he said, and how she stayed on topic. I was taken aback by the runaround Jolly gave us. I didnt feel like he gave very direct answers on issues like the Affordable Care Act. Plantamura, a supporter of Sink before the debate, was also not very happy with Jollys answer on the Affordable Care Act. Because of the ACA, shes had healthcare since Jan. 1, she said. Republican or Democrat this is a bipartisan benefit, she said. I was very disappointed in Mr. Jollys shallow answer. As for the debate as a whole, Plantamura said SPC has a lot to be proud of. This whole event is a feather in the cap of the city of Seminole, she said. SPC Seminoles provost, Dr. James Olliver, said the school and its Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, were honored to host the event. St. Petersburg College always welcomes the opportunity to be a community partner, he said. And promoting civic engagement is one of the Institutes primary missions. Debating the policy issues, followed by informed voting, is what democracy is all about.

BANKRUPTCY~BUSINESS andBANKRUPTCY~CONSUMER011614 6A CountyEight to run for Latvalas seatLongtime commissioner announces she wont seek re-election in November By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER In a surprise move, longtime Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala announced Jan. 28 that she is not seeking reelection in November. Latvala had previously announced that she would run to keep her job representing District 4. Her name still appears with seven others as announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. After much soul-searching, Latvala said Jan. 28, Ive decided not to seek re-election. She said her kids were in high school when she first ran for election. Now they are 35 and 36 and fixing to give me a grandchild, she said. Latvala became somewhat emotional as she made her surprise announcement. She said serving on the commission was the greatest honor of my life. You will be missed, but family is No. 1, said Commissioner John Morroni one of the first to speak after a moment of shocked silence. You will be missed. It was a real honor to serve with you, Commissioner Ken Welch added. I really am bummed out now. Commission Chair Karen Seel said, Im bummed out too and a little surprised, but family comes first. Seel added that serving on the commission often means that family has to come second. Seel made public Latvalas engagement to Jay Powers when she congratulated the couple at a recent commission meeting.Race for District 4 seatIf Latvala had stayed in the race, she likely would have faced several competitors in the Aug. 26 Republican primary, as Scott Fisher, Timothy Keffalas and Wanda Kimsey had already announced they would run. So far, only Jack McAdoo has announced for the Democrats. Two other announced candidates, Dustan Showers and Marcus Harrison, are not affiliated with any party. Since Latvala dropped out of the race, two more Republicans have jumped in. Johnny Johnson Jr. is a new name on the list of announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. Former County Commissioner Neil Brickfield posted on his Facebook page that he was jumping into the race as of Jan. 31. Brickfield brings the list of announced candidates to eight five Republicans, one Democrat and two NPAs. Brickfield represented District 1 on the commission from 2008 to 2012. Latvala was one of four commissioners targeted by a group of citizens in what was commonly referred to as the eight is enough lawsuit. The citizens claimed the commissions longest-serving members were in violation of term limits approved by referendum in 1996 but never implemented. The state Supreme Court ruled term limits unconstitutional before they were ever added to the Pinellas County Charter. In the end, a Circuit Court judge ruled in favor of the commissioners. His opinion concurred with the county attorneys that a 2012 Supreme Court decision on term limits could not be applied retroactivity in Pinellas. Latvala, Seel, Welch and Morroni are free to run for election as many times as they want. Morroni, who also was elected to the commission in 2000, has announced his bid for reelection in November. Two others have announced a run for the District 6 seat fellow Republican Thomas Rask and Libertarian of Florida candidate Jack Harris. Commissioner Norm Roche is seeking a second term representing District 2 in November. Fellow Republican Ed Hooper has announced that he is running and Largo Mayor Pat Gerard, a Democrat, also has announced. Potential candidates still must qualify during the qualifying period in May and June.Long career of serviceLatvala was first elected to serve District 4 on the county commission in 2000. Prior to that, starting in 1992, she served two terms on the Pinellas County School Board. She is currently the commissions vice-chair, and by tradition, most likely would have been picked to serve as chair next year. Latvala currently serves as the chair of Tampa Bay Water. She is chair of the MPOs School Transportation Safety Committee, the countys Business Technology Services Board, the Consolidated Justice Information Systems Committee and Prescription Drug Task Force. She is a member of the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board and the countys Health and Human Services Coordinating Council. She is past chair of the Tourist Development Council, Economic Development Council, Public Safety Coordinating Council and the countys Value Adjustment Board. She is a former member of the countys Charter Review Commission. She has served on many statewide boards, and is currently an executive board member for the Florida Association of Counties. She also serves on the board of a number of local civic organizations.

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

An amendment to the countys animal services ordinance requires any dog found at large and impounded for a second time within two years to be sterilized at the owners expense. Pinellas County Commissioners approved several amendments to the ordinance Jan. 28. Several of the changes were required to bring the countys rules on dangerous animals in line with state law. County rules cannot be more restrictive than state law. Other amendments applied to local rules. Commissioner Norm Roche was the only commissioner to vote no. Commissioner Charlie Justice was absent. Roche supported the changes that addressed state law, but he was opposed to the amendment that requires sterilization for dogs caught at large and the reduced hold times at the shelter. He prefers waiting under a much larger conversation settles the question of a possible new trap, neuter, vaccinate and release program. In addition, a passionate group of animal activists continues to advocate implementing mandatory sterilization for all the countys dogs and cats. Staff had first proposed that dogs found roaming that had not been spayed or neutered be sterilized at the owners expense the first time they were caught. After hearing arguments from the public, the rule was changed to allow owners to be warned the first time. Some breeders remain opposed to the law, saying that circumstances leading to a dog getting loose could be beyond their control. Sterilization of a dog meant for breeding could be devastating to their operation. County staff pointed out that many shelters do mandatory sterilization on the first occurrence. In discussions with the county attorneys office, it was felt that an appropriate warning at the time of the first impound was both reasonable and fair, a staff report said. Staff said that the changes to the reclaim hold time would ensure that owners had adequate time to reclaim their animals while assuring that animals are not held in a shelter environment longer than necessary. The thinking is that the faster an animal can be moved through the shelter process, the quicker they can be reclaimed or adopted, minimizing the chance of becoming diseased. Impounded animals with a license or other owner identification will be held for at least seven days. The day of impoundment counts as the first day. Dogs without identification age 16 weeks or older will be held four days. Puppies under 16 weeks will be held two days. Litters of puppies will be held one day. Cats without identification age 16 weeks or older will be held three days. Kittens under 16 weeks will be held one day. Several people spoke against the change in hold times, saying it was just a way to fast track more animals being euthanized. Others were concerned about the reduced time for owners to reclaim. Several speakers complained about conditions at the countys SPCA. They said the countys director of animal services was being mentored by SPCAs director, who they say is responsible for deteriorating conditions at both facilities. Since SPCA is a partner with Animal Services, staff was asked to look into the matter. We appreciate your passion, Commission chair Karen Seel told the audience. All of us have or have had a dog or cat, and we love them as well. County Administrator Bob LaSala said an independent investigation of misdeeds, including one involving drugs, at Animal Services had been done. The public at previous meetings had brought the alleged problems to the commissions attention. LaSala said the investigation showed a misunderstanding of policy that had been corrected. He said nothing unethical, immoral or illegal was found. In other business, commissioners: Approved an ordinance amending the countywide rules relating to preservation of industrial lands. Approved consideration of settlements in two legal matters. Approved advertising of a Feb. 11 public hearing on a proposed change to county code governing purchasing and contracting. Approved an interlocal agreement with the state Department of Health to provide preventative care for residents that do not qualify for government-sponsored health coverage. Approved financial commitments for two potential economic development projects. One project could result in 62 jobs paying 150 percent above the states annual average. The second could produce 105 jobs paying 200 percent above the states annual wage. Listened to a complaint from a Seminole business owner about code enforcements handling of a sign matter. Senate says no to flood insurance rate hikes By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County residents received a glimmer of hope last week that at least some relief may be coming to combat the unintended consequences of reform on the National Flood Insurance Program. The U.S. Senate approved by a vote of 67-32 Jan. 30 legislation proposed by Florida Sen. Bill Nelson. According to a press release from Nelsons office, the bill will delay many of the flood insurance rate increases for four years, during which time FEMA would be required to study the affordability of the policies and re-evaluate the accuracy of new flood maps. Pinellas has been described as ground zero due to the number of properties affected by sky-high flood insurance rate hikes due to implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Horror stories about monstrous rate increases have been told for months. The real estate industry is reeling. Government officials are concerned that property values could plummet. Pinellas County Commissioner Chair Karen Seel recently took a trip to Washington, D.C., to try to get federal lawmakers to understand the problems flood insurance reform was causing local residents. She reported at a recent commission meeting that she believed the trip did some good, which may be true at least in the Senate. We are finally coming to the point at which we can grant homeowners and businesses some relief from the huge, gargantuan sometimes tenfold increases in flood insurance premiums, Nelson said in a press release. Nelson and fellow Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu from Louisiana took the lead in asking for a rate-hike delay. Congress provided some relief for some of the affected homeowners when it passed the $1.1 trillion government-funding bill in December, Nelson said. The bill prevents the government from spending money this fiscal year to enforce higher premiums on homeowners due to the new flood maps. It also gives FEMA 60 days to provide Congress with a report on ways to keep rates more affordable. But the budget bills requirements were only a partial solution, Nelson said. Legislation passed Jan. 30 attempts to provide greater relief. Nelson pointed out that the measure still must pass the House where tea party members have said they intend to defeat it. Gov. Rick Scott applauded the Senates action and released a statement Thursday evening. I would like to thank the bipartisan coalition of members in the U.S. Senate for their leadership and support on passing legislation to delay increases in flood insurance premiums for Floridians, Scott said. Florida has clearly been a donor state to the National Florida Insurance Program by contributing $16 billion over the last three decades, which is nearly four times the amount that Florida homeowners have received back in claims. This legislation, while not perfect, will provide relief to Florida families who have been disproportionally targeted by these unfair federal flood insurance rates hikes. I encourage their colleagues in the House to also support this common sense measure. The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber, which has been very active in efforts to get relief from the negative effects of flood insurance reform, sent out an update after the Senate vote. It will be a challenge to get it passed by the U.S. House and signed by the President, the email said. Both House Speaker (John) Boehner and President Obama have made it clear that they do not support a delay. In addition, none of the proposed relief measures applies to commercial property.

Congress passed the BiggertWaters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 to try to stabilize the finances of NFIP, which has been in the red since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

This is hard to confirm at sea with dolphins. It can be hard to verify that dolphins are fighting rather than engaging in other lively but non-hostile activities. Fighting makes a lot of splashing that obscures opponent identities. But there are clear moments when you can identify males fighting over a female. If you take her perspective, you see that her options are limited. A shy female we call WR was at the center of huge skirmishes in 2013, two in summer and two around Christmas. I hope she had a break in between. The biggest fight was on July 4. The elements set the stage. Stormy eastern skies were sapphire blue. The setting sun shown like a spotlight on the green and beige islands of Johns Pass, crowded with people, ice chests and volleyball nets instead of resting birds. The dolphin fight started abruptly. It would include a dozen bulls before it was over but it was mainly six, all healthy in body and appetite. Three started throwing serious punches right away. That is, they thrashed each other with their powerful peduncles until the scene resembled a cartwheel tournament. WR was generally embroiled in a mating mob of three or four writhing bulls. Each bull exerted great effort to mate but prevent others from mating by thrusting himself between any dolphins that drew their bodies together, sometimes with audible thuds. Nearby, milling bulls snorted their discontent. To avoid the males, WR floated at the surface on her back as long as she could, her white belly luminous against dispassionate sapphire skies. Inevitably, a bulky bull slammed down on her and she vanished in the lather of struggle. Again and again, males appeared and dove on her, shoving each other aside and skidding back into the fray. Their battle barks and growls attracted more males until there were scuffles all around. The oceans commotion drew the people from their ice chests to stand in ankle-deep water and watch until the skies were aflame with fireworks. The summer fighting over WR went for three weeks until she left the study area. Then, in that enchanting trend among our local dolphins, she returned in the fall as her mother J gave birth to this years calf. She was still with Scarface and his buddy Gazio. They must have won the bull battles over her. Around Christmas, they encountered local rivals determined to test their mettle. Capt. John Heidemann turned our boat into a northern cove in our study area just as a dolphin fight ended. We caught the last two tail whips. As we headed over, local boys Scrapefin and Ski headed out, slowly swimming 5 feet apart in the stately unison of dolphins on display. It had been quite a fight, indicated by the large mud plumes that dotted the area, which fighting dolphins usually create, and the many people on their balconies, now glaring as if the dolphin fight stopped because of us. Meanwhile, the vanquished had escaped underwater. Outside the cove, WR was alternately accompanied by pairs of bulls, the larger bulls Scrapefin and Ski harrying the younger bull pair Scarface and Gazio. The younger bulls bond is fairly new but showed one characteristic of bonded bulls: One bull tends to be bolder. Today Scarface was bolder, shoving Scrapefin back while Gazio swam the sidelines. It was hard to tell WRs preferences. She acted like a compliant dance partner traded between partners. Then we saw that she wanted to get away but escape was futile. Three times, she rocketed out of the jostling bullpen at her greatest speed, racing a hundred yards underwater and then skimming over it to catch her breath and continue her escape. She has the unique physical advantage of being able to empty and refill her lungs in a fraction of a second. But like you, a dolphin can only give it her all as long as she can and then must slow to catch her breath. This gives the other dolphins time to catch up. Time and again, we watched her sprint away vigorously and her companions follow unswervingly. Finally, she, Scarface and Gazio ducked down a convenient canal. Competitors Scrapefin and Ski seemed to lose interest. They continued past the panting escapee to toy with some teens down the way. But they would be back. The next week was an instant replay. Again, we got to the same cove just in time to see distance dolphins give the final tail whips amid telltale mud plumes indicating a serious skirmish. This time, we saw one of the dolphins shoot out of the group, rocket under our boat and blast another hundred yards out of the cove. There was no telling who it was. But as its followers charged past and we identified Scrapefin, Ski, Scarface and Gazio, we knew the fleeing dolphin was little lady WR. Outside, the two sets of bulls caught up and alternately accompanied WR. When temporarily ousted, each pair would arch over the surface in patent display, once even grunting (which is rare). They circled like whooping Indians until conflict resumed. They fell upon one another in writhing mating mobs, punctuated by cartwheel contests of traded tail-whips and desperately swimming between any two dolphins that drew their bodies together. Eventually, a large yacht came by and the competitors surfed away. We have not seen WR or her companions since. Her tormentors Scrapefin and Ski remain here. For her sake, I hope they do.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

TORRES CLEARWATER Four experts in their field shared their perspectives on the upcoming year to members of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce Jan. 21. The breakfast program, this year dubbed Focus on 2014: A Tampa Bay Economic Forecast, is an annual event for the Largo-based chamber, held at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater Beach. Ed Peachey, president and CEO of WorkNet Pinellas and the Tampa Bay Workforce Alliance, spoke first, sharing current statistics on the growth of the local work force. The slow but steady growth likely would continue in the upcoming year, he said. I think its pretty much going to be more of the same. I think unemployment is going to continue to go down. I think were going to have job growth in all industry sectors except maybe government, being that its an election year, he explained. Peachey called for the employers in the room to not leave the task of training tomorrows work force to colleges and universities. We need the employer community to step up and help train that next generation of workers, he said. We have to create more opportunities for internships and apprenticeships if were going to build a work force here in Tampa Bay.Health careCarl Patten, director of health care policy for Florida Blue in Jacksonville, discussed the future of health care, much of which hinges on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In general, spending on health care has slowed in recent years, even falling behind the rate of inflation one year, he explained. But that was a result of the recession and the coming year is sure to see an increase in health care spending. The question is, to what extent? Patten said. That would depend on how the continual implementation of the Affordable Care Act plays out and how both advocates and opponents of different aspects of the federal law will fight for, or against, its implementation. There are a lot of strange bedfellows and strange enemies that are going to pop up as a result of this, he said. The Affordable Care Act isnt the end solution to the problem of the immovable object versus irresistible force, Patten explained. Rising health care costs, particularly Medicare, are up against the immovable fact that the country typically doesnt want to pay more than 18 percent of GDP in taxes, he said. The obvious solutions growing the economy or cutting health care services or raising taxes havent been working out. Were going to have to figure out how to get more value out of the money we spend, Patten said. We spend $2.8 trillion a year in health care, far more than any country.EnergyAlex Glenn, president of Duke Energy Florida, reviewed the state of energy resources. Overall electricity usage per customer is down, despite the company serving more customers overall, thanks to increasing energy efficiencies, he said. Glenn discussed the merits and drawbacks of various energy sources Duke Energy continues to pursue. The company currently relies on natural gas for now a cheap source of energy, but historically the most volatile in cost for 60 percent of its energy. Projections place shale gas, obtained within the United States through hydraulic fracturing or fracking, as the future source of reliable energy, he said. Renewable solar energy continues to be an expensive and less effective source specifically twice as expensive as natural gas, even factoring in reimbursements from government incentives, while only being a fifth as effective, Glenn said. The key to success in solar is storage, he added. Duke Energy will continue to invest in ways to store the energy during peak sunshine for use when Tampa Bay customers need the most power, particularly between 6 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., he said. Glenn also said addressing the areas transportation needs played a part in energy efficiencies, making a plug for the Greenlight Pinellas plan. Weve got to address our transportation issues. If we dont, were going to get left behind, he said.Income inequalityPhilip Porter, economics professor at the University of South Florida, was charged with concluding the event with an economic forecast. He focused almost entirely on the problem of income inequality. A variety of factors led to the giant gap between the top 1 percent those who make $400,000 a year or more and everyone else, he explained. While globalization had the unforeseen consequence of creating more demand for the countys highly skilled talent and less demand for unskilled workers at home, factors such as tax law changes and the shift to paying CEOs based on the stock of the company rather than its overall success unnecessarily increased the pay of those at the top, Porter said. The problem now is the top 1 percent includes the members of Congress, who work to create, for example, agricultural subsidies for their income peers larger companies rather than small farmers who compete directly against them, he said. Even Social Security is a plan that takes from the majority and gives to the richest age demographic: those 65 or older, Porter said. Even local tax dollars often are used to incentive high earners like larger businesses or professional sports teams, well stocked with earners in the top 1 percent to stay or move into the area. Some income inequality is necessary to incentive those working their way up the ladder with rewards for their hard work, Porter said. But todays inequality is not the result of normal market forces, but rather the 1 percent supporting their own. My sense is you make income equality by letting the market take its place, Porter concluded. You interfere with the market, you get disruptions that look like 11 people vs. 3.5 billion, and thats unsustainable. Big Brothers Big Sisters CEO steps downLARGO Effective June 27, Susan Rolston will be retiring from the position of CEO for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas. Rolston has spent her entire career adding potential to the lives of children, first with the Pinellas County School District and then at Big Brothers Big Sisters. She joined the agency in March of 2001. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the board members and executive staff by working together to enrich the lives of children who need us the most, Rolston shared in her retirement announcement to her staff members. Rolston will leave the agency with a scholarship endowment for graduating Littles, designed to help break generational poverty. Over the past decade, the agency has accomplished substantial growth in the number of children served under Rolstons leadership, from 400 in 2001 to 1,433 in 2013. Being recognized locally and nationally as an evidence-based social service nonprofit that provides high quality mentoring to children is extremely rewarding, Rolston stated. Reaching that level of achievement in the midst of diversifying revenue sources was a satisfying, yet aggressive challenge. As a champion for children living in adversity, Rolston expects to stay engaged with local programs and activities that will give children in need the opportunity for a better life. Dave Fox, president of Big Brothers Big Sisters Board of Directors and senior vice president of Manufacturing & Advertiser Content at ValPak, thanked Rolston for her leadership on behalf of the board of directors. Susans legacy will continue to further the agency under the steadfast direction of the strong team established during her years of service, he said.

School newsSchools selected for AP Capstone programBoca Ciega, Northeast and Countryside high schools are three of nearly 100 schools worldwide selected to implement AP Capstone an innovative program that allows students to engage in the rigorous development of skills critical for success in college inquiry, research, collaboration, and writing. The program includes a two-course sequence: Advanced Placement Seminar and AP Research. The first of the two AP Capstone courses, AP Seminar, will start in fall 2014. The program is designed to be taken in sequence during the junior and senior year, targeting students who have passed or have the potential to pass an AP exam. We are one of the few districts in the country to have an opportunity to offer AP Capstone to students at three of our high schools, said Pinellas County Schools Superintendent Michael Grego in a press release. In the coming years, we hope to expand this innovative program to even more high schools within the district to prepare a broader, more diverse student population for college and career success. Current sophomores at Boca Ciega, Northeast and Countryside will be encouraged to apply to the program if they have passed or have the potential to pass an AP exam. The three high schools offering AP Capstone will host informational fairs in February. Northeast High School hosted its 10th grade College and Career Ready Night on Feb. 4. Countryside High School hosted its Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment Fair on Feb. 5. Boca Ciega High School will host its College, Career and Registration Fair on Monday, Feb. 10, 6 p.m., for current 10th grade students currently enrolled in AP courses or who have the potential to pass an AP exam. The fair will be presented in the main auditorium. Current 10th grade students will register for classes for the 2014-15 school year during the week of Feb. 10. Developed in response to feedback from higher education faculty and college admission officers, AP Capstone complements the in-depth, subjectspecific rigor of AP courses and exams currently offered at the three schools. The seminar course will equip students with the power to explore academic and real-world issues through an interdisciplinary lens and consider multiple points of view. The AP Research course will allow students to design, plan, and conduct a yearlong mentored investigation on a topic of their choosing. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher on the AP Seminar and AP Research Exams and scores of 3 or higher on four AP Exams of their choosing will receive the AP Capstone Diploma.Vought receives deans list recognitionCLEARWATER Ethan Vought of Seminole received the deans list award at Clearwater Christian College for scholastic achievement during the 2013 fall semester.

I was a member of this group for many years, before realizing that the expenses of belonging to the clown alley were becoming too much. Now, let me give a bit of background as to why. Sure there were dues to belong to the club, but that was only a very small portion of the costs involved. Keep in mind that this is a group who volunteers its services to the community of Largo, and yes, at the time, in association with the City of Largo. Besides dues, the City of Largo required that everyone have a recreation card. Thats a bit of money, especially when our whole family was involved And then each person had to pay for the use of the Citys Community Center room for the one hour of use each month per person. And this is all for a group who volunteers for the city at events the city requests clowns for. Remember, this is a clown group who volunteers their time and materials, such as balloons, face paints etc. If you are unaware, these items can be quite expensive. And remember volunteering. Florida Clown Day has always been one of my favorite times spent with the children of Largo and surrounding areas. I have enjoyed taking my little clown car, and my three children and we have enjoyed clowning with the kids. This all makes me contemplate how the city of Largo must not realize the value of these clowns and their services. I also do paid clowning. The City obviously either has no idea the value of these clowns or just doesnt care. To have over one hundred clowns available to the community at Florida Clown Day is an event that is hard to beat. It is not the fault of a clown alley who volunteers their time that the city is so irresponsible with city money that they need to charge volunteers to volunteer for the benefit of the City. It just frustrates me that the city of Largo is trying to spin this as if Uptown Clowns has been getting some kind of sweetheart deal. Just saying. Dean Adams Largo2014 perspective on Roe versus WadeEditor: In 1973, the same year Roe versus Wades Abortion Act was passed, co-workers disclosed to me that they knew of a single woman who had already had one abortion, and was in the process of scheduling a second. When I asked them why, they indicated that they believed the expectant mother was single, had no supporting family, church, job or benefits, and was not of sound mind since having taken the life of her first and only child at age 18. In 1949, a single mother with no job, three young mouths to feed and having recently experienced her husbands death, in the midst of severe loneliness and grief, becomes pregnant. Worse yet, she is left in a foreign city to fend for herself and her children. Somehow, she manages to struggle through the experience, remarries a former high-school sweetheart in 1951, and moves back into her small hometown to raise her family. While these two stories share very similar circumstances at the start, their outcomes at the finish line are extremely different. On Feb. 8, the 1949 single mother will turn 92. She is an amazing individual in stature, courage, grace and dignity, with a healthy respect for life and for countless others. During the last 64 years, I have come to know her from a much deeper and broader perspective as to her capabilities, commitment and maternal love. There is nothing she failed to sacrifice for any of the family members throughout their adolescence and well into their adulthood with their respective families, a beacon or measure for others to follow. Isnt it ironic then, that after all of this, she finds herself once again in the same dilemma for she must now face the very same issues and questions of the unborn or soon to be aborted child. When she cant speak, eat or stand-up for herself and life is coming to an end or her life-sustaining functions begin to fail as they will for all of us who have been given the opportunity to travel lifes journey and all of the wonderful and unknown experiences it has to offer, who then will be best able to speak, care and take action on her behalf if not for the unborn child. Lorian J. Tripp Largo A local hero Editor: Step out your door and begin walking and you will likely not go very far before you pass one of the many heroes living in this area who have yet to be recognized and rightfully praised. Just look a bit closer, for example, at the following life of a local man who fits this category all too well, and then judge for yourself if you would also call him a hero. From his earliest days, he had no doubt that music would be a necessary part of his life. Back in the 1940s and 1950s, as he helped to build army tanks at Baldwin Locomotive Works, he was working along with, and playing music for, Mario Lanza, who was still studying opera at that time. He went on to play guitar in the Westinghouse band, and then bass in a variety of other bands, with noted stars like Billy Holiday, Cab Calloway, and Dave Brubeck. But all of those impressive times did not, of course, make him a hero. That would come later. Much later. After working at Westinghouse, building generators for battleships, he then moved on, and, for the next 36 years, he owned and ran a car lot until he finally retired. From that point on, he had to cope with the next big challenge in his life, his advancing age. All the way up through his 70s and 80s, he held his own quite well. But when he reached the age of 90, things began to fall apart. That job at Westinghouse, building generators, included a good amount of asbestos dust filling the air, at a time when that threat to health attracted little attention, fluid began to appear in his lungs. And then he actually began to fall. During the next few years, he fell eight times, breaking his ribs and both shoulder blades. Aspirin was prescribed for the pain, and that gave him bleeding ulcers. On one of his falls, he tore off most of the skin from his left elbow down to his wrist, leaving a large area of the flesh beneath exposed. His skin by then had dried out, and it became so fragile that simply touching it too hard would cause a pool of blood to appear beneath it. Now comes the amazing part. His name is Vito Prudente, a little guy, 137 pounds, and, up to this very moment, after all that life has inflicted upon him, he not only keeps going day to day, but he does so always with a cheerful word and a smile for everyone he meets. He keeps moving among us, with a cane and a shuffle, and with that sly little pixie look of his, so full of joy at simply still being alive that he brightens every room he enters. Vito is one of the bravest individuals I have ever known. At age 94 now, and still going strong, he represents, by any definition, that category of a true hero who persists, with all the odds against him, to conquer each day with his own joy, and to readily share that joy with others. Bill Glasser Clearwater Feeding fish in the North AtlanticI sympathize with all the sick passengers on the several cruise ships weve been reading about in the past few weeks. Im amazed that the cruise lines are still operating, and that vacation travelers continue to risk ghastly gastro-intestinal ailments by booking passage on any of those floating palaces. These reports take me back 65 years, to my first ocean cruise and the disaster I experienced. The vessel was far from luxurious. It was a U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Bristol, based in Newport, R.I. I had boarded the ship only a few days earlier after completing radioman training at the Norfolk, Va., naval base. I was 18 and had joined the Navy the previous summer in order to escape being drafted into the Army. I feared dying in an obscure foxhole after the Soviet Union declared war on the western world. Im not sure why I thought death on the high seas was preferable to death in a foxhole. Further evidence of my mental acuity was the fact that I had suffered from motion sickness from infancy onward. Id get sick in the family car, on a playground swing, on amusement park rides, or in a canoe moving through a frog pond. In the face of all that, what did I do? I joined the Navy!A week after I boarded the Bristol, we went on training maneuvers in the north Atlantic, a region famous for its stormy waters, especially in March. I spent the ensuing fortnight in two places: clinging to my bunk with a bucket beside me, or dry-heaving over a rail outside the radio shack. Crew members passing by made sympathetic remarks such as Still feeding the fishes, Driver? I was useless to perform any duties. At any single moment I was afraid I was going to die. Two minutes later I feared that I might not. As I lay immobilized in my bunk, shipmates kept playing a rhythm-and-blues song called I Want a Bow-Legged Woman, performed by Bull Moose Jackson. The lyrics are branded into my soul.When the Bristol returned to Newport, I was prepared to be shot, given a medical discharge or transferred to an Army base in the Sahara desert. Instead, the Navy sent me to a nut-house. The official title was Ward L (the psychiatric unit) of the Chelsea Naval Hospital, just outside downtown Boston. The Navy figured that motion sickness was a form of mental illness. For two weeks my companions were sailors incapacitated by a variety of mental/emotional ailments. One was a convicted murderer, transferred from a Navy prison to be treated for epilepsy. Another was a man so homesick he had attempted suicide. A third was a transvestite deserter who was found performing in a Boston gay bar. Then there was a chief petty officer who had suffered for years from chronic unexplained dysentery. Obviously, my motion sickness was a ready-made affliction to help me fit easily into this bizarre gallery. My treatment consisted of several steps. One was dime-store psychoanalysis. Seaman Driver, did your parents beat you? Did you ever get a girl pregnant? Do you get a thrill from seeing a chicken? When those incisive queries failed to identify any Freudian traumas, the Navy therapists attached a dozen or so electrodes to my skull and measured the radioactive beeps and blurps that could be detected. Once it was clear that I wasnt a psychopath I was assigned critical duties such as sweeping and swabbing the hospitals floors. And so it went, until the day a doctor summoned me to hear the verdict that would alter the course of my life. Seaman Driver, our conclusion is this: we feel you are an average, not-especially-bright young man whose perennial vomiting while traveling on erratically-moving objects is genuine, i.e., youre not faking it in the hope of being assigned to shore duty. We have no idea what causes your problem. So were sending you back to your ship, with this bottle of pills. The bottle contained a newly-developed drug called Dramamine. It was a miracle. Ive lived with it ever since. I will not board an aircraft or an ocean-going vessel without first popping a Dramamine tablet. Its only unwelcome side effect is drowsiness, which has occasionally lowered the trajectory of my otherwise meteoric career. But thats another column, perhaps. Unfortunately, from what I read, the recent cruise ship plagues cannot be prevented or easily cured by taking a pill. The only apparent solution is for the traveling public to steer clear of ocean voyages. Im all for that. One of the joys of my life is the immense satisfaction of staying home with the TV and watching Rick Steves schlepping all over Europe.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun.

I was fortunate to have a brother and that was his job. We didnt recycle. Not many did back then. I dont remember doing trash when in college or even after I got my first apartment. Im sure I took it somewhere and someone hauled it away. Trash became part of my life not long after I married for the first time. We rented a house on 100 acres well outside Fayetteville, Ark. It came with a fireplace, plenty of well water, a 100-year-old garden, and a view that just kept on giving. But no one picked up the trash. The county provided a dumpster across the highway from a little convenience store about 10 miles away. We drove there a couple of times a month with a pickup truck filled with trash bags. The dumpster was usually overflowing. We finally purchased a home on 10 acres a little closer to town. The well water smelled like rotten eggs. The old oak barn had no fireplaces. There was no garden and no one came for the garbage. But, it was ours and we loved it. Funny thing, the only legal place to take our trash was that same little dumpster, except now it was about 20 miles away. We began to recycle everything we could. We sold our aluminum cans at a beer distributing company. We took our paper to a place run by a nonprofit for the disabled. No one took plastic, steel cans or glass. We composted religiously, trying to turn that sticky red clay ground into soil so we could garden. We minimized our trash as much as we could. And monthly, we filled the back of the pickup and drove 20 miles to the dumpster that was usually overflowing. Twenty-two years later, I parted ways with my first husband and moved to town. For the first time in nearly 20 years, I lived in a place where someone came and hauled away the garbage. There was a nifty little wooden rack with a row of metal garbage cans. I used them every day just because I could. Only those who have lived without could understand the luxury. When I moved to Florida a couple of years later with my soon-to-be second husband, we lived in an apartment. Residents had to carry their trash to a dumpster on the other side of the complex. I took our trash to the dumpster most every day at first. Then I figured out when it would be full to overflowing and skipped those days. Apartment life really wasnt our thing, so a year later we moved to a house in Belleair. The city sent around garbage trucks twice a week. I missed the luxury of being able to go to that dumpster any time I wanted. If you got busy and forgot it was trash day, you were out of luck. Weve lived in Largo for nearly 10 years now and bought our home a little more than three years ago. Weve concentrated on reducing our trash by recycling and composting. It doesnt matter if we forget a trash day because we rarely have enough for two. But we almost always have three containers full of recycling, and theyre usually overflowing. Last week, we received our new recycling container. And its huge. I cant tell you how excited I am. The city of Largo is providing mixed recycling service. Theyll be no more sorting. For us, the service starts this week. We can start putting in glass and steel cans, and juice and milk cartons, too. You have to rinse them out just like the aluminum, but thats no big deal. We can recycle plastic containers #3 through #7. Im already visualizing the empty space where the stacks of kitty litter buckets in the garage are now. We wont have to hold the paper when it rains because the container has a lid. I do most of my work on the computer, but I still love hardcopy. Being able to get rid of most of it every week makes me giddy with joy. Some may not appreciate the luxury. But I sure do. Im anxious to see if my neighbors who dont recycle now will start. It couldnt be easier. Only those who have lived without can understand the luxury. Thank you Largo.Suzette Porter is Internet services manager for Tampa Bay Newspapers.

For more information, please call 727-391-9599. www.RemaxAllStar.com 020614 By BOB McCLUREREDINGTON SHORES Beach residents and businesses may well see an increase of visitors from New York and Chicago over the next few months. At least thats what the staff of Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater is hoping for after investing $1 million in a marketing campaign that targets the two northern cities. Speaking to members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council on Jan. 29, D.T. Minich, executive director of the Pinellas County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said his staff has designed a program that uses a number of catchy slogans at key locations in those two cities to get their message across. What we do is very unique when we market, Minich said. Most destinations, when they run a campaign, have one or two slogans that they use nationwide. When we go into New York or Chicago, we customize those messages. We want them to know we understand their markets and we want to talk to them. Minich said Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater has purchased advertising space in 800 Subway or Metro cars throughout the New York area. We have banners up above in the Subway cars, coming in from Long Island and New Jersey, Minich said. When youre going into the Subway, we have about 48 of these lighted panels throughout Manhattan. So as you walk into the Subway station, youre going to see the beach message and then when you get in the station youre going to see it again. The message includes a serene beach scene with slogans such as: Manhattan? Were partial to the margarita Our daily commute? Walking down to the beach Wake up in the city that never sleets New York, New York warm up, warm up. The campaign also includes a beach message on the side of four double-decker buses in New York and two in Chicago. Also in Chicago, CVB has taken over every possible advertising space in the Ogilvie Transportation Center. Ogilvie is the connecting station that goes to all the upscale suburbs on the north side, Minich said. When I say taken over, were on the sides of the escalators and we bought every single advertising space in Ogilvie. Were even on the floor. When you go up an escalator, it says Winters looking up and when you come down the escalator it says come down to a warm beach. Among the slogans to be used in the Windy City are: Rush Street? Seriously, whats the hurry? (with an image of a beach) We can show you 35 magnificent miles No Loop but a circular thing called the sun Chicago, youll be bullish about this. CVB has also invested in coffee sleeves with such phrases as Sunshine is the new caffeine. and Coffee can only warm you up so much.Tourism marketing efforts target New York, ChicagoAbout 200,000 sleeves will be used in Chicago coffee shops and another 80,000 in New York, Minich said. Just in case the targeted market misses the message in those locations, when commuters reach an elevator they will see it again, or at least think about being in a warmer place. We bought every possible elevator (video) screen available in New York and Chicago, said Minich. Then at the bottom of the screen, whats cool is we have real-time temperatures in Chicago and Pinellas County. CVB also will experiment with gorilla marketing, an advertising strategy using low-cost unconventional methods, when the next major snow storm hits Chicago or New York. Weve hired a company to go throughout New York and Chicago, at eight different locations in New York and five in Chicago, and theyre going to build huge snow sculptures, like our sand sculptures here, Minich said. Theyre going to feature a dolphin, a guy (paddle) boarding and palm trees. Theyre going to be 6to 8-feet-tall and theyre in prime locations. This will happen with the next snowstorm. We think this will get a ton of media attention because this hasnt ever been done before. Altogether, Minich said the combined New York-Chicago campaign is expected to create 976 million impressions, which is an online advertising measure of the number of times an ad is seen. In addition to the New York-Chicago program, CVB has embarked for the first time with a marketing effort in Toronto using such slogans as Toboggans? Were riding waves and Follow the geese south, they know what theyre doing. CVB has also partnered with Floridas Natural with a message on 12 million cartons of orange juice. We have the entire side panel with a chance to win a trip to St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Minich said. This will go from now to April. Well also be featured in Better Homes and Gardens and Midwest Living. The catch phrase for this campaign is If only they could bottle this feeling. Well here it is in a carton. The early results are good, Minich said. Our phone lines and our website are going through the roof, he said. Its not only what were doing but its Mother Nature at its best too. As a testimony, beach hotels are almost completely sold out for March. Were near sell-out capacity for March and into April, Minich said. Its a great combination. Weve had all the bad weather up north, which gets people thinking Ive got to get out of here for spring break. Then Easter is later this year too (April 20) and that helps. On other topics, Minich said: International travelers, primarily from Germany and the United Kingdom, account for 18 percent of the countys tourism, which is expected to grow to about 25 percent with COPA Airlines now operating four flights a week from Panama into Tampa. Latin America is a whole new market and its going to open up a lot of opportunities for us, Minich said. Pinellas County will be featured on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May. CVBs 108-page Gulf To Bay magazine will be distributed in the Sunday, March 2 edition of the New York Times and later in the spring in the Florida edition of the New York Times, as well as the Orlando Sentinel, Florida edition of the Wall Street Journal and Tampa Bay Times. Altogether, 525,000 copies of the publication are being distributed this year.

Kerryn Ellson The Vorac GroupPinellas receives $200,000 defense grantTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott announced Jan. 24 that local defense partners in Pinellas County were awarded $200,000 through Floridas Defense Infrastructure Grant. Pinellas County was one of eight counties to receive a Defense Infrastructure Grant, which allotted $1.6 million to eight governments statewide. Scott said, These investments are critical to the continued growth and protection of Floridas military sector. This $200,000 investment will allow Pinellas County to address encroachment and buffering, transportation and access, and security issues. Across Florida, our military servicemen and women are dedicating their lives to protect our state and nation, and we must continue to fund these vital programs and protect the over 758,000 jobs the military and defense industry supports in Florida. Floridas military and defense industry is responsible for $73.4 billion, or 9.4 percent, of Floridas gross state product, which translates to jobs for more than 758,000 Floridians. In Pinellas County, the military and defense industry is credited with $3.61 billion in economic impact and 39,702 jobs. This grant has been utilized for more than 15 years as a key tool in maintaining Floridas reputation as the most military-friendly state in the nation. Sen. Jack Latvala said, Local military installations have long been an important part of our lives in Pinellas County. The grant funds will be put to good use building the pedestrian walkway at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater. Sen. Jeff Brandes said, Gov. Scott and the Legislature know the importance of supporting our military families and I applaud them for awarding $200,000 to Pinellas County. Rep. Ed Hooper said, The impact of Floridas military bases is often overlooked as an economic driver for the state. More than $70 billion is inserted annually into our economy by more than 750,000 personnel living in our state and, as a result, nearly 40,000 jobs have been created right here in Pinellas County. These grants go a long way to help preserve this economic asset. Rep. Larry Ahern said, The grant will help our military bases with much needed infrastructure improvements. These improvements will keep both military personnel and local citizens safe and secure. I applaud Gov. Scott and our Legislature for addressing this need. Rep. Jamie Grant said, These grants go a long way in helping preserve the economic impact our military bases and families have on Florida. I sincerely thank Gov. Scott and the Legislature for continuing to support the military in Pinellas County and across the state. Rep. Kathleen Peters said, Floridas military sector continues to be among the strongest in the nation thanks to critical funding from these two programs. Gov. Scott and the Legislature continue to support these programs and, in turn, allow us to keep more than $3.6 billion in economic impact here in Pinellas County.

Sports 17A Seminole Beacon, February 6, 2014 Obituaries FLORENCE TAYLOR May 20, 1914 January 24, 2014 Her family is sorry to announce that after a marvelous life of almost 100 years, Florence Ida Parker Taylor (nee Vint) has passed away in Toronto. She was predeceased by her husband, Hugh B. Parker (1963); second husband, Leon A. Taylor (2004); and stepson, David Taylor (1990). She has left wonderful memories for her children and their spouses: Carol Shaw (Wayne), Hugh C. Parker, (Judy), and Joy Parker Blackwood (Billy Ray), and for her stepchildren, Peter Taylor, Patricia Taylor and Glen Taylor (Joanna). Florence enjoyed and was loved by her grandchildren, Ross Galloway (Liz Marshall), Lynn Galloway (Nicholas Goboly), Christine Parker (Todd Joyes), Karen Craig (Ryan), and Victoria and Leilani Taylor, as well as great grandchildren, Brody Galloway and Quinn and Abigail Joyes. She will be missed by her sister, Lois Parker; sister-in-law, Dora Davenport and niece, Joan Munoz, as well as by Murray Galloway, Jill Burns, and countless friends in Florida, Montreal, Ontario and elsewhere. Florence loved life. Born in Toronto, she attended Balmy Beach and Williamson Road Public Schools, Moulton Ladies College, and Shaws Business School. She was a talented musician with dreams of a concert pianist career; a dream cut short by the depression of the 1930s. She loved participating in sports of every kind, and continued to swim lengths of the pool almost daily at her home in Florida and at Amica at Bayview, until well into her nineties. Florence loved travelling and saw much of the world. Her main passion was her love of, and devotion to, Christian Science. She was a Christian Science Practitioner, and was active in every avenue of her church. Having lived for 36 years in Florida after her husband retired, it was quite a decision to return to Toronto at age 92 to be closer to her family. But she easily made friends at Amica and participated in everything from bridge games and movie nights to the glee club and the Sudoku group. She was one of the last members of the Monitor Club of Toronto. Thanks to Ruth, Beverly, Novlette and Solange for their loving support and care, as well as to the staff at Amica. The love of each of us goes with you on your on-going journey, Mom! An afternoon to remember Florence Taylor will be held at a later date. In lieu of owers, a contribution to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

Four years ago, 400 runners registered for the run. The following year it grew to 750 and last year the total was 900. This year, organizers expect at least 1,000 runners, making it the largest ever. Way back when, the first race attracted only 48 runners, said Danielle Felten, Belleairs special events coordinator. Now were expecting over 1,000 because more and more people are talking about it. Felten says the parade route may have something to do with its growing popularity. The route goes through down and along Bayview and the bluffs and it gives everyone a great view of the beautiful scenery, she said. Even the walkers like it, weve gotten rave reviews. The runners just have a good time on that route. One of the regular participants in the race agrees with that assessment. Jim White has been running in the race for years. I enjoy it, it goes past the houses and the bluffs, it is a nice run, he said. The athletic websites all bill it as a picturesque run so it has some attraction because of that. White says he is not surprised that the event is growing every year. It is well advertised and is a nice town event, he said. Im hoping to do real well this year but I have some training to do. Ive been sick and had a twisted ankle but Im back at it now. Another reason why the race is popular according to White is the after-party. Felten acknowledges that it is something that attracts the runners. I can only say the party is the best time ever, she said. Every registered runner gets to attend the party and besides entertainment there is free food and drink for everybody, all you can eat. Belleair resident Amy Maguire, her husband Sean and daughters Megan, 12 and Molly, 10 are regulars in the race. No one is more enthusiastic about the event than Maguire. There are so many people from all over who come to the race and they make it exciting, she said. Last year I talked to people from St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs and they told me how much they love to come to Belleair for the race. Maguire says she and her family have been participating in the race almost since the beginning. You establish milestones when you do something like this, she said. When my youngest was just 7 she actually ran the entire race. It was a community event and she was with all her friends and they ran the race. They never would have dreamed they could run that far. Maguire says she and her family intend on participating in the race for years to come. The race was started 12 years ago as a 10k run and was held as a fundraiser for the Rec Center. Back then it was held in the morning. Five years ago it was changed to a 5K in the evening and that is when its popularity took off. People come back year after year, said Felten. This year one woman who has been participating for years told me she finally registered before the early deadline; she signed up early to get the discount. Although serious runners from all over participate in the race, there is more to the event than that. In addition to the 5k run, there is also a 1-mile fun run and nobody necessarily needs to run, participants can walk the course as well. As long as they are registered and are paid up they qualify for that after-party, which some have said is the only reason they show up. The race is held on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 5:30 p.m. Participants can register online at imathlete.com and look for Belleair Sunset, or in person at the Dimmitt Community Center. Online registration closes on Feb. 12, but in-person registration continues right through the day of the event. The discount date is passed so the registration cost is $30 for adults and $20 for children from 5 to 15. For that registrants get a Tshirt, awards for the top finishers and the post-race party. People need to go because it really is fun, said Felten. It is really the deal of the century.Dozens of runners cram into Belleairs Town Hall to pick up their kits for last years Sunset 5K race. Soccer player Andrew Goodman, left, was recently selected as BeefOBradys Student-Athlete of the Week. In addition to playing all positions for Seminole High School, he also plays for the club team Tampa Bay United. With a 3.0 GPA, he will be attending St. Petersburg College in the fall.

Will Ferrell is the voice of President Business, aka Lord Business, an uptight CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life, and Liam Neeson is the voice of Lord Businesss loyal henchman, Bad Cop/Good Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet. Voicing the members of Emmets rebel crew on this heroic mission are Morgan Freeman as the ancient mystic Vitruvius; Elizabeth Banks as tough-as-nails Wyldstyle, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Wyldstyle shares a history; Nick Offerman as the craggy, swaggering pirate Metal Beard, obsessed with revenge on Lord Business; Alison Brie as the sweet and loveable Unikitty and Charlie Day as Benny, the 1980-something Spaceman.The Monuments MenGenre: Drama Cast: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and John Goodman Director: George Clooney Rated: PG-13 Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, TheOpening this weekendGeorge Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray star in Monuments Men Photo by CLAUDETTE BARIUS/COLUMBIA PICTURESFrom left, clockwise, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Matt Damon, Hugh Bonneville, John Goodman and Jean Dujardin star in Columbia Pictures' The Monuments Men.Monuments Men is an action drama focusing on seven over-the-hill, out-of-shape museum directors, artists, architects, curators, and art historians who went to the front lines of WWII to rescue the worlds artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their rightful owners.

PETERSBURG The 20-time Grammy award winner Pat Metheny will bring his Unity Group to the Tampa Bay area for a one-night special performance set for Sunday, Feb. 9, 7 p.m., at The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S. Tickets start at $45. Call 893-7832 or visit www.themahaffey .com. Methenys body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras and ballet pieces with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical. Pat Metheny, Ben Williams, Chris Potter, Giulio Carmassi and Antonio Sanchez are the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Pat Metheny Unity Group is an extension of Methenys Unity Band project. In 2012, he partnered with Sanchez (drums), Williams (bass) and Potter (saxophone) as a quartet. The group toured Europe and the United States. In 2013, Metheny sought to capitalize on the bands success and officially announced the formal formation of the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Unity Band project was life-changing for me said guitarist Pat Metheny in a press release Ted Kurland Associates. I have led many groups of talented musicians, but what went down with that band on a night-after-night basis was inspiring in a way that was really unlike anything else. When we did our last gig, as we walked off the stage all I could think about was that I didnt want it to end, and I knew it was the same for Chris, Antonio and Ben, too. Metheny also announced an anticipated album and world tour. For the past few months, I have been trying to find a way to extend our time together, Metheny said. At the same time, I have been feeling the pull to do the kind of lush and harmonically dense music with lots more written material that has always been a big part of my larger groups and projects. One night I woke up with the tantalizing idea of really taking Unity concept all the way and forming a platform for the first time that could cover the entire spectrum Pat Metheny Unity Group to play at Mahaffey Theaterof things that I have done as a bandleader over the years under one roof. With this lineup, everything from Bright Size Life to Secret Story to all of my Group stuff to Song X could be within range and more. With the new incarnation of the project, a new face joined the lineup. An incredible musician appeared on my radar thanks to a recommendation from my friend, bassist Will Lee, Metheny said. His name is Giulio Carmassi. He comes from Italy and I guess you could say that he is a multi-instrumentalist, but that barely scratches the surface of what he does. Carmassi is a piano and keyboard player, and also plays woodwinds and brass, guitars, bass, drums and, according to Metheny, he sings like an angel. He told me he was inspired by seeing one of my bands perform in Italy when he was young and often thought about having the multi-instrumentalist seat on one of my projects, Metheny said. With Guilio added to the core just about anything will be possible. The Pat Metheny Unity Group released the new album Kin Feb. 4.Pat MethenyAccording to the biography provided by Ted Kurland Associates, Metheny was born in Lees Summit, Mo., in 1954, into a musical family. He began playing trumpet at age 8, and, at age 12, he switched to guitar. By his mid-teens, Metheny was playing regularly with some of the best jazz musicians in Kansas City and, in return, earning priceless on-the-bandstand experience. Methenys introduction to the international jazz scene came in 1974. Over the course of his three-year stint with vibraphone great Gary Burton, Metheny displayed his soon-to-become trademarked playing style, which blended the loose and flexible articulation customarily reserved for horn players with an advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility. His debut album soon followed: Bright Size Life (1975) helped re-imagine the traditional jazz guitar sound for a new generation of players. Metheny has continued to redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument. Over the years, Metheny has won countless polls as Best Jazz Guitarist and plenty of awards, including three gold records for Still Life (Talking), Letter from Home and Secret Story. He has also won 18 Grammy Awards spread out over a variety of different categories including Best Rock Instrumental, Best Contemporary Jazz Recording, Best Jazz Instrumental Solo, Best Instrumental Composition. The Pat Metheny Group won an unprecedented seven consecutive Grammies for seven consecutive albums. Metheny has spent most of his life on tour, averaging between 120 and 240 shows a year since 1974.

PETERSBURG A year after their outstanding Florida debut with Caberfeidh Productions, Cassie and Maggie MacDonald are returning to St. Petersburg. Cassie and Maggie MacDonald will perform Friday, Feb. 7, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show. Call 822-3590 or visit www.mypalladium.org. Cassie and Maggie are 2011 Galaxie Rising star award winners, and 2012 ECMA nominees for Roots/Traditional Recording of the Year for their debut album Fresh Heirs. The evening will feature original and traditional Celtic music ranging from Cape Breton reels to Antigonish polkas and more. According to their press kit, Cassie and Maggie encompass everything you could ask for in a musical act. Billed as exciting and innovative, they have found the perfect balance between musical integrity, and sheer entertainment. Cassie and Maggie stay true to their Celtic roots while charting and testing the boundaries of traditional music. They are known for bringing a breath of fresh air to the genre with their original compositions and arrangements. Sisters, cohorts and collaborators, Cassie and Maggie have been enchanting audiences far and wide with their infectious energy, driving rhythms and lilting melodies. Born in Halifax, with strong roots in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, the musicians got their start wowing audiences across Canada with their unique blend of original and traditional Celtic music. Cassies fiddle playing has been described as sweet and elegant with just the right amount of raw power. Maggies piano playing has an irresistible drive and compliments Cassies playing perfectly. Together these delightful sisters are far more than the average fiddle and piano duo: Cassie is an award winning highland and step dancer and also sings harmony for Maggie. In addition to her virtuosic piano playing, Maggie sings lead, plays guitar and is also an accomplished step dancer. Their music fits together seamlessly, encompassing various styles from Cape Breton reels to Antigonish Polkas, Quebecois fiddling and footwork to down east standards. Their vocal harmonies are sweet yet powerful and their step dancing exact and exciting, showing off their youthful charm and energy. The siblings were born to a family with a rich musical heritage. Raised in Nova Scotia, a province steeped in musical culture and traditions, the girls have used their unique upbringing as a springboard for their own brand of Celtic Roots music. They are equally at home playing tunes passed down through generations of musicians as they are seamlessly weaving themes from the Moonlight Sonata into sets of surefire reels. Appearing on stages across Canada, the United States, France, Germany, Bermuda and the UK, since their first festival performance at the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival in Ontario, the girls have gone on to be soloists in the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo and International Polizi Show in Hamburg, Germany. They also performed for the French Ambassador in Paris, France. Cassie and Maggie played at the independence day celebrations on Bermuda Island, the Lunenburg Folk Harbour festival, Celtic Classic festival, Stan Rogers International Songwriters festival and Festival Memoires et Racines in Jolliette, Quebec. This year will prove to be the busiest and most exciting yet with performances at the Milwaukee Irish Festival, Celtic Colours International festival and Ocrafolk festival in NC, again, just to name a few.

PETERSBURG Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh, a special multi-media, private artifact exhibition, is on display through April 27 at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S. FHM is one of three U.S. cities to host the exhibition. Prior to its arrival in the Tampa Bay area, it visited Chicago and New York. After its run at FHM, the collection will return to Israel. Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh is not a traveling exhibition but a collection of personal items thats likely never to be seen together again. Entrusted to organizers by Seneshs nephews, the exhibition includes a widerange of personal artifacts including her diary, a newspaper she published with her brother, and a collection of personal notebooks and photographs. Senesh is widely known as the author of Walking to Caesarea, her 1942 poem that was set to music in 1945 and is largely considered the virtual second anthem for the state of Israel. Recently performed by Regina Spektor at a concert in Israel this past August, it was also prominently featured in the movie Schindlers List. Organized by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City, the 2,500-square-foot exhibition also includes audio/visual displays by Roberta Grossman, the awardwinning director of Blessed is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh. We could not be more thrilled that St. Pete is one of three cities to receive this very important chronicle of one of the Holocausts most respected heroes, said Elizabeth Gelman, director of the Florida Holocaust Museum. A strong, resourceful, courageous woman, her story continues to inspire people across the globe. We expect the exhibition to draw visitors from across the state of Florida.About Hannah Senesh There are people whose glorious memory continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living these lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way. Senesh wrote these words in a letter to her mothers family in Dombvr, Hungary, upon the death of her great-aunt Betti Mama, in September 1940. Senesh, a young woman who took part in a secret British mission so that she might also help Jews in Europe, was one of those people. She also was the talented poet who wrote those words that would, along with her diary, be read by millions of people around the world. Seneshs life was short but her memory continues to impact millions. Senesh was born on July 17, 1921, into a Hungarian-Jewish middle class family. She went to a private Protestant secondary school where she was one of a small number of Jewish students. While she excelled there, she also eventually encountered institutionalized anti-Semitism. Her response was to become an ardent Zionist intent on settling in Palestine. She left Budapest for Palestine in September 1939, two weeks after Germanys invasion of Poland. After completing two years of studies at the Agricultural School for Young Women in Nahalal, she joined the newly organized kibbutz, Sedot Yam. In the summer of 1943, wanting to help in the effort to defeat the Nazis and to do something for the Jewish remnant in Europe, Hannah accepted an invitation to join a unit being trained to parachute into occupied Europe. There, she and the other Palestinian-Jewish volunteers would carry out a double mission. For the British, she would help set up escape routes for downed Allied aircrews who had evaded capture; for the Haganah the Palestinian Jewish underground army she would organize Jews and help them to escape. Senesh and four colleagues parachuted into Yugoslavia in March 1944. She crossed into Hungary in early June, but was immediately captured by the Hungarian authorities. She was imprisoned for six months and was brutally interrogated. While in prison, she taught her fellow prisoners Hebrew and inspired them with stories of life in Palestine. Her mother was arrested in an attempt to extract information from her, but Senesh refused to give her captors the information they sought. She was tried for treason, and executed by firing squad on Nov. 7, 1944, at the age of 23. Her remains were moved to Israel in 1950, and she is now buried in the section of Israels national military cemetery dedicated to the parachutists. Her mother and brother survived the war.

It shows how her priorities changed in 1938 and 1939 upon facing anti-Semitism, and how she became a Zionist. The exhibition follows Senesh to the Agricultural School of Young Women in Nahalal and portrays her physical and spiritual life there and at Kibbutz Sedot Yam through the use of her own words, including the text of her famous 1942 poem Halikha LKesariya (A Walk to Caesarea), known worldwide as Eli, Eli. This short Hebrew poem was set to music in 1945, and has since become a virtual second anthem in Israel. Seneshs mission, imprisonment, trial and execution are narrated through the words of her acquaintances, family, and friends who were witness to these tragic events. The exhibition concludes with a section describing Hannahs legacy. Items featured in the exhibition include: An edition of Kis Szenesek Lapja (Newspaper of the Little Seneshes), produced in 1929 by Senesh and her brother Giora). Readers paid for the paper with chocolates. Seneshs Hungarian passport with its visa to Palestine. The portable typewriter Senesh brought with her to Palestine along with letters she typed to her mother that sometimes included drawings and handwritten messages. The suitcase in which Senesh stored her notebooks and other possessions when she departed on the mission. She left a letter stating that she is leaving the suitcase at the kibbutz containing Daddys books and other personal items, which I would not like anyone except Gyurka (her brother) or Mother to touch. The last photo of Senesh and her brother Giora taken in Tel Aviv the day Hannah departed on her mission. He had arrived in Palestine the previous day. The back of the photo was inscribed by her brother. How good and pleasant it is for siblings to be together, and sent to her in Egypt. Senesh returned it to him, adding, How good!

The addition of Eat It! a few years ago made the event a tasty triple-header, said Ken Hannon, DFACs associate executive director.

Osceola was in control for more than three quarters of the game holding a 2-0 lead with only 12 minutes left to play. Thats when Seminoles offense turned up the heat, scoring twice within a minute and the go-ahead goal with only six seconds left to play. Final score: Seminole 3, Osceola 2. Seminole advanced to the regional final against Lakewood Ranch in Bradenton but was defeated 1-0. Top right, Seminole High goalkeeper Bria Riancho makes a save against Osceola.

Candidates debate the issuesObamacare, flood insurance and immigration reform were among the variety of topics By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE Monday night, Republican David Jolly, Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby attended a byticket-only debate in the Digitorium of St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus. The three candidates are running for a chance to serve Pinellas County in the U.S. House of Representatives in a special election March 11. The winner will fill the position left vacant when longtime Rep. C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18. Young served District 13 in congress for more than 40 years. The debate, a special edition of Political Connections, broadcast on Bay News 9, was the result of a partnership between SPC, Bay News 9 and the Tampa Bay Times. The event was sponsored by AARP. The debate was moderated by the Times political editor Adam C. Smith, Times assistant managing editor Amy Hollyfield and Bay News 9 senior anchor Al Ruechel. Write-in candidate Michael Levinson did not attend. The nights event was fastpaced with a variety of topics covered in what was described as lightning rounds, where single word answers were preferred. Other questions allowed candidates 30 to 60 seconds to make their case. An opening statement started things out. Jolly told viewers that he had spent 20 years working at the side of the late Rep. Young. He said he wants to continue Youngs work to empower families to make their own decisions. He favors less taxes and less regulation. He stressed that he is a Pinellas County native. He was born in Dunedin and now lives in Indian Shores. Overby said when he began to campaign for a seat in Congress a year ago, he did so to bring people who are disenfranchised with the process back into the fold. He said if elected, he would have a chance to bring the peoples concerns to a larger stage. He said he agreed with some of the priorities of his opponents, but there were grave differences between the three. Sink said she was sick and tired of the dysfunction in Washington. She wants to end partisanship to get things done. She said she is an experienced businesswoman who served as the states chief financial officer and worked together to bring Democrats and Republicans together. She wants to fight to protect jobs, Social Security, veterans benefits and bring the voice of the people in Pinellas County to Washington.Lightning round questionsShould Florida accept federal money to expand Medicaid? Overby said yes; Sink said no. Jolly said not unless there is a guarantee the money cant be taken away. Should the federal government be required to have a balanced budget? Overby and Jolly said yes; Sink said no. Should the state allow medical marijuana? Jolly and Overby said no; Sink said yes, but added she did not support any program that would allow pot shops. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council approved the appointment of seven members to the Charter Review Committee one for each council member at its Jan. 28 meeting. Mayor Leslie Waters nominated Susan Berkowitz, an industrial engineer to the committee, while Vice Mayor Barnhorn nominated St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Provost Dr. James Olliver. Councilors Chris Burke, John Counts, Bob Matthews, Patricia Plantamura and Jim Quinn nominated Bob Castles, who has sat on the committee in the past; Ann Gardner of the Seminole Lake Country Club Estates Homeowners Association; Linda Cole, who sat on the committee previously; Chuck Oldanie of the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake; and Joe Haynes respectively. This is a very important committee, Waters said. It only convenes every five years and gives an overview, a look-see as to the relevance and appropriateness of our charter. Since 1999, Section 10.03 of the City Charter requires the council to appoint no less than five and no more than nine members to the committee every five years. The council should appoint at least one member who has previously sat on the committee. Waters suggested that each council member nominate one person for the committee, but Plantamura argued that the council should nominate the maximum number of members to encourage openness and citizen participation. I think appointing the maximum number of interested parties to serve, that is the number nine, is in the citys best interest in transparency and inclusiveness, she said. She pointed out that past Charter Review Committees have been composed of nine members. Barnhorn, however, expressed concerns about how theyd select the remaining two members of the committee. If only a couple of people on the council know that eighth person, its not necessarily a vote of council, he said. It needs to be a vote of council as a whole. He added, Its also been my experience that the more people you put on a committee, the longer it takes them to make a decision on any one thing, Features Business . . . . . . . . .10-11A Classieds . . . . . . . . .7-9B Community . . . . . . . . .14A County . . . . . . . . . . .6-8A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-6B Faith & Family . . . . . . . .16A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .9A Real Estate . . . . . . . . .15A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-5A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .17A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising The Mahaffey Theater welcomes the Pat Metheny Unity Group Feb. 9. ...

Prior to Youngs death, she was a longtime resident of Hillsborough County. She replied that when she considered running for District 13 seat, she asked herself, Do I share the values of the people of this district? My political values are very well aligned with Pinellas County, she said, adding that she had worked in Pinellas County for 25 years in the business community and her charitable work. Jolly said that Rep. Young By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Pinellas County voters in District 13 were left with plenty to talk about following the hour-long debate between Republican David Jolly, Libertarian Lucas Overby and Democrat Alex Sink at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Monday night. The three candidates are vying to fill the U.S. House of Representatives seat left vacant in that district when Rep. C.W. Bill Young died in October. The winner will be chosen in a March 11 special election. Several who were in the audience for the debate lauded the events fast-paced format, which featured a lightning round where single-word yes or no answers were encouraged and questions where candidates were given more time 30 to 60 seconds to respond. I have to commend the [debates] sponsors and moderators, said the Rev. Fr. Robert Swick, commander, JFK 1963 chapter and veterans advocate, of Dunedin. They worked hard to come up with an interesting format. Jeff Johnson, state director for AARP Florida, which sponsored the event, thought the format allowed for really good discussions on a variety of issues. He added, I think the moderators did a good job. They jumped around, but in a good way, and kept the pace up.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3A Photo courtesy of GENE STERNSeminole Lake Rotary Club named Osceola Fundamental High School students Ethan Grantges and Emily Harris as students of the month. Grantges, who has a GPA of 4.6, is a member of the National Honor Society and is on the principals list. He is also a member of the championship varsity swim team and volunteers at the St. Paul United Methodist Church Youth Group. He plans to attend the University of Central Florida where he will major in mechanical engineering. Harris, with a GPA of 4.4, has been on the Principals List and Honor Roll and has received Academic Letters for the past three years. She works at local childrens camps tutoring first graders struggling with reading skills. She also participates on the bowl, culinary and juggling teams. Recently accepted to Johnson & Wales Charlotte, she plans to earn a degree in culinary and food service management. Also pictured is principal Michael Bohnet.Students of the Monthhad taught every school group that visited his office that the House of Representatives was the peoples house, something he would continue to respect if elected. Alex wants to change Washington, I believe representation should be local, she said. Overby said he didnt think residency was a determining factor. A lot of Pinellas County people are interested in the concept, he said. He said he had spent a great deal of time working in the trenches, spending time in the community. When Sink was asked if she would stay in Pinellas if she lost the election, she said, Im not losing.ObamacareA member of the audience asked the candidates if they supported a repeal of Obamacare. Jolly said yes. He said Obamacare was founded on a premise that now is being called the lie of the year. He said it should be repealed and alternatives offered in its place. He said Obamacare was hurting Pinellas County residents and businesses. Overby said he was in favor of getting the cost of health care down. Some parts of Obamacare are good, he said. But there needs to be less focus on insurance and more on reduced costs. Sink said she believes that Americans have the right to health insurance and secondly affordable health care. Obamacare cant be repealed because we cant go back to where we were, she said. She said she knew people who were thrilled with Obamacare. She asked if it were right to go back to a time when people could be refused insurance due to pre-existing medical conditions or when seniors had more problems with access to health care. Jolly said the problems Sink mentioned could be fixed. I believe in less government, not more, he said. Overby said many of the arguments ongoing over healthcare and insurance dated back to the Clinton administration. He suggested getting insurance out of the way so work could be done to fix affordability.Flood insurance reformOverby said he supported the plan recently passed by the Senate to delay insurance rate hikes for four years to allow time to work on real solutions. He supports expanding the public option and more involvement by private insurers. Sink said she had reached out to insurance companies and agents as well as local Realtors. She said she offered four or five suggestions on her website. She favors looking for solutions now and exploring what can be done with the private sector instead of kicking the can down the road for four years. Jolly said Biggert-Waters flood reform is a bad law today and it will be a bad law in four years. He favors use of private insurance and diversifying the risk pool. The answer is not in Washington. The answer is in the private sector. It is in Tallahassee, he said. Sink reminded Jolly that the National Flood Insurance Program was started due to a lack of private insurers.Immigration reformSink and Overby said they support immigration reform and a path to citizenship as proposed by a bipartisan Senate plan. Overby said he does not support parts of the plan that are too expensive. Jolly does not support a path to citizenship. He said people who have broken the law should not be rewarded and suggested that something needed to be done about businesses that employ illegal workers. We cant insult those who have done it (became a citizen) legally, he said.Social SecurityOn the question of Social Security and Medicare benefits, Jolly admits something needs to be done; however, he does not support cutting benefits to those who are vested in the program. He defines vested as having worked for 40 quarters, or 10 years. He does not advocate long-term entitlement for those not now in the system. Overby did not favor Jollys approach. As a 27year-old, he asked who would end up paying. He said the plan would leave him without benefits. Jolly is 41 and Sink is 65. Overby favors other alternatives such as a voluntary program to drop out of the system as a charitable donation. He does not favor forcing people out. I will fight to support Medicare and Social Security, Sink said. She said she went on the program this year after paying in for 40 years. She said she didnt want to worry that her 25-year-old daughter would not have access to health care when she is 65.Student financial aidOne SPC student asked the candidates about what could be done to make education and financial aid more affordable. Overby said costs of education had gone up dramatically due in part to the subsidies. He said federal government should be less involved to allow colleges to become more competitive. Sink said it was important for government to continue to invest in the future and ensure students have access to student aid. Jollys plan ties the cost of education to the success of the school. Theyre offering a product to the students, he said.Other topicsJolly said he is OK with the states amendment on gay marriage because it is a matter between the partners and their God. Overby said he supports the ban. Sink said she supports gay marriage. Overby supports the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. Sink also is in support, but added more needed to be done to ensure adequate background checks. Jolly supports doing whatever must be done to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Sink supports raising the minimum wage. Overby is opposed. Jolly supports finding a suitable wage rate and then tying future raises to the cost index. On a local issue, Jolly and Overby oppose light rail in Pinellas County. Sink is in favor. The moderators brought up the subject of Jollys lobbyist activities against Social Security and for offshore drilling, which he said were not true. He said he worked to negotiate a ban against offshore drilling. He said he worked on a measure that would guarantee Social Security for everyone. The candidates were asked if there were things in which they disagreed with their party. Sink said she disagreed with Obamas plan to implement chain CPI, which would lower benefit amounts. Jolly said he disagrees with his partys handling of flood insurance reform and changes to Social Security. Overby said the Libertarian Party was often bullheaded and overzealous. He said he was trying to find solutions for all, not just one part of the population. Jolly and Overby oppose Common Core standards for education. Jolly believes education should be a decision made in the classrooms. Overby believes the closer education is to families the better. Sink believes standards are important to measure students who will be competing on a national and worldwide setting. The candidates were asked one question on foreign policy: Would they support more aggressive military action in Syria? Sink said no. I dont believe in putting more boots on the ground in a country where we dont understand the dynamics, she said. Jolly said yes. (Bashar) Assad used chemical weapons to kill people and children, he said. We should have intervened right away. Overby said no. He said he had talked to Syrians right after the incident. Syrians didnt want us interfering, he said. The U.S. going in and killing more people would not have helped. Other remarksWhichever candidate is elected will have a short time to serve before they are up for re-election again in November. Sink said she would spend her time working with FEMA on flood insurance. Jolly agreed with Sink that flood insurance reform should be a priority. But he added that constituent service had to be a major task. Young served for 43 years and he took care of Pinellas County, he said. Overby said he would focus on simplifying the tax code and getting taxes and spending down. If flood insurance is on a four-year hold, it can wait, he said. I want to make sure to keep as much money in the pockets of the people as possible. Sink said she wanted to go to Washington to be the voice for Pinellas County. I would be honored to serve as your congresswoman, she said. Overby said he had spent a year working with the community to find out what the people want. Im not part of the political machine, he said. Im not part of a party I have to answer to. I can do what the people want. Jolly said it was not easy to put yourself up before the public when you run for office. He said he would take his core values to Washington. I want less regulation and less taxes for the people in Pinellas County. For more information on the candidates, visit davidjolly.com, lucasoverby.com or alexforcongress .com. CANDIDATES, from page 1A CHARTER REVIEW, from page 1Aincluding how to spell the word the. I would give more confidence to the citizens of Seminole that there wouldnt be confusion, Plantamura said. She suggested putting names of volunteers in a hat and pulling them out to fill the remaining spots on the committee. Moving forward, the council will suggest areas for the committee to review and discuss prior to its first meeting, which has yet to be determined. In other action items, the council: Approved the use of Capital Improvement Project funds for the rehabilitation of storm water conveyance piping adjacent to Pineapple Road, 72nd Terrace, 121st Street and 112th Street. The city set aside $195,000 in CIP funds for the project, which will rehabilitate the failing pipes identified by the citys Public Works Department with a Cured in Place Pipe and minor joint repairs. The pipe restoration will cost the city $177,076. The city was able to piggyback on a Pinellas County contract with Layne Inliner LLC. To my memory, we havent spent money on storm water pipe lines in at least five years, Waters said. City Manager Frank Edmunds said that only spot repairs have been made in recent years. Authorized the sale of beer and wine by the Rotary Club of Seminole at the Pow Wow Kick-off Party at City Park on Saturday, March 1. This is the first time this free kick-off event will be held at City Park.candidates on their feet. Seminole City Councilor Chris Burke also commended the break from the usual debate format, particularly the lightning section. You didnt just get the candidates up there going, Blah blah blah, he said, which kept the audience more engaged. Of the many topics discussed, different issues resonated with different attendees. Camille Christian, a student at SPC, of Safety Harbor, was very interested in what the candidates had to say on the issue of financial aid for college and immigration law. But she was disappointed they didnt spend more time discussing legalizing marijuana. Corey Harpin of Clearwater agreed that student loans were a hot topic of the night. We need to reform the way funds are given out so students can afford to go to school, he said. But he wishes the candidates had spent more time discussing education reform overall. I have a 14-month-old son at home, he said. The decisions we make today are going to affect him. An operations manager at a manufacturing factory, Harpin also felt that the topic of expanding manufacturing jobs in the county and supporting small, local businesses should have been discussed. Though AARP members each have their own set of interests, all can appreciate discussions on social security, healthcare and Medicaid, Johnson said. But one question he thinks candidates should have answered at the debate: How can people currently working ever afford to retire? Its an important question to consider, he said, with pensions going away and an unstable economy. Burke wishes more time was spent on the goals for District 13. We didnt get any of their thoughts on the topic. Two issues stood out for Seminole City Councilor Patricia Plantamura: immigration reform and healthcare. Immigrants enrich both Americas culture and its economy, she said. Statistical data shows that immigrants are business creators. Theyre consumers. Theyre living in homes. Theyre a wonderful aspect of life in this country. She added, Its a non-partisan issue. Congress just needs to get it done. As for the candidates themselves, Burke felt there was no clear winner in the debate. Each candidate won on different topics, he said. Undecided on which candidate to support, he said he came to Mondays debate curious to see who they are and what they have to say. I liked David Jollys answer on being from Pinellas County, Burke said. I think he won on the local versus carpetbagging debate. As for Sink, she overstated her bipartisanship, Burke said, and lost time where she could have been more specific on various issues. He was also impressed by Overby, whom he didnt know much about prior to the debate. He was very well-spoken and informed on the issues, he said. Swick, a Democrat who supports Jolly, agrees. The young man, the libertarian, did a very fine job, he said. I liked his poise and his strength of fact. Everything he said was backed up by facts. He added, I didnt appreciate Sink. It seemed like she was hogging up the time. Christian, initially an undecided voter, didnt know much about any of the candidates prior to the debate. I thought all three candidates had something good to say, she said. But now she supports Sink, she said. She seemed very sincere and I appreciated that she shared her personal experiences. Harpin was also undecided going into the debate and left it fairly confident that he will vote for Sink. I really liked her, he said, and how she stayed on topic. I was taken aback by the runaround Jolly gave us. I didnt feel like he gave very direct answers on issues like the Affordable Care Act. Plantamura, a supporter of Sink before the debate, was also not very happy with Jollys answer on the Affordable Care Act. Because of the ACA, shes had healthcare since Jan. 1, she said. Republican or Democrat this is a bipartisan benefit, she said. I was very disappointed in Mr. Jollys shallow answer. As for the debate as a whole, Plantamura said SPC has a lot to be proud of. This whole event is a feather in the cap of the city of Seminole, she said. SPC Seminoles provost, Dr. James Olliver, said the school and its Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, were honored to host the event. St. Petersburg College always welcomes the opportunity to be a community partner, he said. And promoting civic engagement is one of the Institutes primary missions. Debating the policy issues, followed by informed voting, is what democracy is all about.

BANKRUPTCY~BUSINESS andBANKRUPTCY~CONSUMER011614 6A CountyEight to run for Latvalas seatLongtime commissioner announces she wont seek re-election in November By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER In a surprise move, longtime Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala announced Jan. 28 that she is not seeking reelection in November. Latvala had previously announced that she would run to keep her job representing District 4. Her name still appears with seven others as announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. After much soul-searching, Latvala said Jan. 28, Ive decided not to seek re-election. She said her kids were in high school when she first ran for election. Now they are 35 and 36 and fixing to give me a grandchild, she said. Latvala became somewhat emotional as she made her surprise announcement. She said serving on the commission was the greatest honor of my life. You will be missed, but family is No. 1, said Commissioner John Morroni one of the first to speak after a moment of shocked silence. You will be missed. It was a real honor to serve with you, Commissioner Ken Welch added. I really am bummed out now. Commission Chair Karen Seel said, Im bummed out too and a little surprised, but family comes first. Seel added that serving on the commission often means that family has to come second. Seel made public Latvalas engagement to Jay Powers when she congratulated the couple at a recent commission meeting.Race for District 4 seatIf Latvala had stayed in the race, she likely would have faced several competitors in the Aug. 26 Republican primary, as Scott Fisher, Timothy Keffalas and Wanda Kimsey had already announced they would run. So far, only Jack McAdoo has announced for the Democrats. Two other announced candidates, Dustan Showers and Marcus Harrison, are not affiliated with any party. Since Latvala dropped out of the race, two more Republicans have jumped in. Johnny Johnson Jr. is a new name on the list of announced on the Supervisor of Elections website. Former County Commissioner Neil Brickfield posted on his Facebook page that he was jumping into the race as of Jan. 31. Brickfield brings the list of announced candidates to eight five Republicans, one Democrat and two NPAs. Brickfield represented District 1 on the commission from 2008 to 2012. Latvala was one of four commissioners targeted by a group of citizens in what was commonly referred to as the eight is enough lawsuit. The citizens claimed the commissions longest-serving members were in violation of term limits approved by referendum in 1996 but never implemented. The state Supreme Court ruled term limits unconstitutional before they were ever added to the Pinellas County Charter. In the end, a Circuit Court judge ruled in favor of the commissioners. His opinion concurred with the county attorneys that a 2012 Supreme Court decision on term limits could not be applied retroactivity in Pinellas. Latvala, Seel, Welch and Morroni are free to run for election as many times as they want. Morroni, who also was elected to the commission in 2000, has announced his bid for reelection in November. Two others have announced a run for the District 6 seat fellow Republican Thomas Rask and Libertarian of Florida candidate Jack Harris. Commissioner Norm Roche is seeking a second term representing District 2 in November. Fellow Republican Ed Hooper has announced that he is running and Largo Mayor Pat Gerard, a Democrat, also has announced. Potential candidates still must qualify during the qualifying period in May and June.Long career of serviceLatvala was first elected to serve District 4 on the county commission in 2000. Prior to that, starting in 1992, she served two terms on the Pinellas County School Board. She is currently the commissions vice-chair, and by tradition, most likely would have been picked to serve as chair next year. Latvala currently serves as the chair of Tampa Bay Water. She is chair of the MPOs School Transportation Safety Committee, the countys Business Technology Services Board, the Consolidated Justice Information Systems Committee and Prescription Drug Task Force. She is a member of the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board and the countys Health and Human Services Coordinating Council. She is past chair of the Tourist Development Council, Economic Development Council, Public Safety Coordinating Council and the countys Value Adjustment Board. She is a former member of the countys Charter Review Commission. She has served on many statewide boards, and is currently an executive board member for the Florida Association of Counties. She also serves on the board of a number of local civic organizations.

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

An amendment to the countys animal services ordinance requires any dog found at large and impounded for a second time within two years to be sterilized at the owners expense. Pinellas County Commissioners approved several amendments to the ordinance Jan. 28. Several of the changes were required to bring the countys rules on dangerous animals in line with state law. County rules cannot be more restrictive than state law. Other amendments applied to local rules. Commissioner Norm Roche was the only commissioner to vote no. Commissioner Charlie Justice was absent. Roche supported the changes that addressed state law, but he was opposed to the amendment that requires sterilization for dogs caught at large and the reduced hold times at the shelter. He prefers waiting under a much larger conversation settles the question of a possible new trap, neuter, vaccinate and release program. In addition, a passionate group of animal activists continues to advocate implementing mandatory sterilization for all the countys dogs and cats. Staff had first proposed that dogs found roaming that had not been spayed or neutered be sterilized at the owners expense the first time they were caught. After hearing arguments from the public, the rule was changed to allow owners to be warned the first time. Some breeders remain opposed to the law, saying that circumstances leading to a dog getting loose could be beyond their control. Sterilization of a dog meant for breeding could be devastating to their operation. County staff pointed out that many shelters do mandatory sterilization on the first occurrence. In discussions with the county attorneys office, it was felt that an appropriate warning at the time of the first impound was both reasonable and fair, a staff report said. Staff said that the changes to the reclaim hold time would ensure that owners had adequate time to reclaim their animals while assuring that animals are not held in a shelter environment longer than necessary. The thinking is that the faster an animal can be moved through the shelter process, the quicker they can be reclaimed or adopted, minimizing the chance of becoming diseased. Impounded animals with a license or other owner identification will be held for at least seven days. The day of impoundment counts as the first day. Dogs without identification age 16 weeks or older will be held four days. Puppies under 16 weeks will be held two days. Litters of puppies will be held one day. Cats without identification age 16 weeks or older will be held three days. Kittens under 16 weeks will be held one day. Several people spoke against the change in hold times, saying it was just a way to fast track more animals being euthanized. Others were concerned about the reduced time for owners to reclaim. Several speakers complained about conditions at the countys SPCA. They said the countys director of animal services was being mentored by SPCAs director, who they say is responsible for deteriorating conditions at both facilities. Since SPCA is a partner with Animal Services, staff was asked to look into the matter. We appreciate your passion, Commission chair Karen Seel told the audience. All of us have or have had a dog or cat, and we love them as well. County Administrator Bob LaSala said an independent investigation of misdeeds, including one involving drugs, at Animal Services had been done. The public at previous meetings had brought the alleged problems to the commissions attention. LaSala said the investigation showed a misunderstanding of policy that had been corrected. He said nothing unethical, immoral or illegal was found. In other business, commissioners: Approved an ordinance amending the countywide rules relating to preservation of industrial lands. Approved consideration of settlements in two legal matters. Approved advertising of a Feb. 11 public hearing on a proposed change to county code governing purchasing and contracting. Approved an interlocal agreement with the state Department of Health to provide preventative care for residents that do not qualify for government-sponsored health coverage. Approved financial commitments for two potential economic development projects. One project could result in 62 jobs paying 150 percent above the states annual average. The second could produce 105 jobs paying 200 percent above the states annual wage. Listened to a complaint from a Seminole business owner about code enforcements handling of a sign matter. Senate says no to flood insurance rate hikes By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County residents received a glimmer of hope last week that at least some relief may be coming to combat the unintended consequences of reform on the National Flood Insurance Program. The U.S. Senate approved by a vote of 67-32 Jan. 30 legislation proposed by Florida Sen. Bill Nelson. According to a press release from Nelsons office, the bill will delay many of the flood insurance rate increases for four years, during which time FEMA would be required to study the affordability of the policies and re-evaluate the accuracy of new flood maps. Pinellas has been described as ground zero due to the number of properties affected by sky-high flood insurance rate hikes due to implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Horror stories about monstrous rate increases have been told for months. The real estate industry is reeling. Government officials are concerned that property values could plummet. Pinellas County Commissioner Chair Karen Seel recently took a trip to Washington, D.C., to try to get federal lawmakers to understand the problems flood insurance reform was causing local residents. She reported at a recent commission meeting that she believed the trip did some good, which may be true at least in the Senate. We are finally coming to the point at which we can grant homeowners and businesses some relief from the huge, gargantuan sometimes tenfold increases in flood insurance premiums, Nelson said in a press release. Nelson and fellow Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu from Louisiana took the lead in asking for a rate-hike delay. Congress provided some relief for some of the affected homeowners when it passed the $1.1 trillion government-funding bill in December, Nelson said. The bill prevents the government from spending money this fiscal year to enforce higher premiums on homeowners due to the new flood maps. It also gives FEMA 60 days to provide Congress with a report on ways to keep rates more affordable. But the budget bills requirements were only a partial solution, Nelson said. Legislation passed Jan. 30 attempts to provide greater relief. Nelson pointed out that the measure still must pass the House where tea party members have said they intend to defeat it. Gov. Rick Scott applauded the Senates action and released a statement Thursday evening. I would like to thank the bipartisan coalition of members in the U.S. Senate for their leadership and support on passing legislation to delay increases in flood insurance premiums for Floridians, Scott said. Florida has clearly been a donor state to the National Florida Insurance Program by contributing $16 billion over the last three decades, which is nearly four times the amount that Florida homeowners have received back in claims. This legislation, while not perfect, will provide relief to Florida families who have been disproportionally targeted by these unfair federal flood insurance rates hikes. I encourage their colleagues in the House to also support this common sense measure. The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber, which has been very active in efforts to get relief from the negative effects of flood insurance reform, sent out an update after the Senate vote. It will be a challenge to get it passed by the U.S. House and signed by the President, the email said. Both House Speaker (John) Boehner and President Obama have made it clear that they do not support a delay. In addition, none of the proposed relief measures applies to commercial property.

Congress passed the BiggertWaters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 to try to stabilize the finances of NFIP, which has been in the red since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

This is hard to confirm at sea with dolphins. It can be hard to verify that dolphins are fighting rather than engaging in other lively but non-hostile activities. Fighting makes a lot of splashing that obscures opponent identities. But there are clear moments when you can identify males fighting over a female. If you take her perspective, you see that her options are limited. A shy female we call WR was at the center of huge skirmishes in 2013, two in summer and two around Christmas. I hope she had a break in between. The biggest fight was on July 4. The elements set the stage. Stormy eastern skies were sapphire blue. The setting sun shown like a spotlight on the green and beige islands of Johns Pass, crowded with people, ice chests and volleyball nets instead of resting birds. The dolphin fight started abruptly. It would include a dozen bulls before it was over but it was mainly six, all healthy in body and appetite. Three started throwing serious punches right away. That is, they thrashed each other with their powerful peduncles until the scene resembled a cartwheel tournament. WR was generally embroiled in a mating mob of three or four writhing bulls. Each bull exerted great effort to mate but prevent others from mating by thrusting himself between any dolphins that drew their bodies together, sometimes with audible thuds. Nearby, milling bulls snorted their discontent. To avoid the males, WR floated at the surface on her back as long as she could, her white belly luminous against dispassionate sapphire skies. Inevitably, a bulky bull slammed down on her and she vanished in the lather of struggle. Again and again, males appeared and dove on her, shoving each other aside and skidding back into the fray. Their battle barks and growls attracted more males until there were scuffles all around. The oceans commotion drew the people from their ice chests to stand in ankle-deep water and watch until the skies were aflame with fireworks. The summer fighting over WR went for three weeks until she left the study area. Then, in that enchanting trend among our local dolphins, she returned in the fall as her mother J gave birth to this years calf. She was still with Scarface and his buddy Gazio. They must have won the bull battles over her. Around Christmas, they encountered local rivals determined to test their mettle. Capt. John Heidemann turned our boat into a northern cove in our study area just as a dolphin fight ended. We caught the last two tail whips. As we headed over, local boys Scrapefin and Ski headed out, slowly swimming 5 feet apart in the stately unison of dolphins on display. It had been quite a fight, indicated by the large mud plumes that dotted the area, which fighting dolphins usually create, and the many people on their balconies, now glaring as if the dolphin fight stopped because of us. Meanwhile, the vanquished had escaped underwater. Outside the cove, WR was alternately accompanied by pairs of bulls, the larger bulls Scrapefin and Ski harrying the younger bull pair Scarface and Gazio. The younger bulls bond is fairly new but showed one characteristic of bonded bulls: One bull tends to be bolder. Today Scarface was bolder, shoving Scrapefin back while Gazio swam the sidelines. It was hard to tell WRs preferences. She acted like a compliant dance partner traded between partners. Then we saw that she wanted to get away but escape was futile. Three times, she rocketed out of the jostling bullpen at her greatest speed, racing a hundred yards underwater and then skimming over it to catch her breath and continue her escape. She has the unique physical advantage of being able to empty and refill her lungs in a fraction of a second. But like you, a dolphin can only give it her all as long as she can and then must slow to catch her breath. This gives the other dolphins time to catch up. Time and again, we watched her sprint away vigorously and her companions follow unswervingly. Finally, she, Scarface and Gazio ducked down a convenient canal. Competitors Scrapefin and Ski seemed to lose interest. They continued past the panting escapee to toy with some teens down the way. But they would be back. The next week was an instant replay. Again, we got to the same cove just in time to see distance dolphins give the final tail whips amid telltale mud plumes indicating a serious skirmish. This time, we saw one of the dolphins shoot out of the group, rocket under our boat and blast another hundred yards out of the cove. There was no telling who it was. But as its followers charged past and we identified Scrapefin, Ski, Scarface and Gazio, we knew the fleeing dolphin was little lady WR. Outside, the two sets of bulls caught up and alternately accompanied WR. When temporarily ousted, each pair would arch over the surface in patent display, once even grunting (which is rare). They circled like whooping Indians until conflict resumed. They fell upon one another in writhing mating mobs, punctuated by cartwheel contests of traded tail-whips and desperately swimming between any two dolphins that drew their bodies together. Eventually, a large yacht came by and the competitors surfed away. We have not seen WR or her companions since. Her tormentors Scrapefin and Ski remain here. For her sake, I hope they do.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

TORRES CLEARWATER Four experts in their field shared their perspectives on the upcoming year to members of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce Jan. 21. The breakfast program, this year dubbed Focus on 2014: A Tampa Bay Economic Forecast, is an annual event for the Largo-based chamber, held at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater Beach. Ed Peachey, president and CEO of WorkNet Pinellas and the Tampa Bay Workforce Alliance, spoke first, sharing current statistics on the growth of the local work force. The slow but steady growth likely would continue in the upcoming year, he said. I think its pretty much going to be more of the same. I think unemployment is going to continue to go down. I think were going to have job growth in all industry sectors except maybe government, being that its an election year, he explained. Peachey called for the employers in the room to not leave the task of training tomorrows work force to colleges and universities. We need the employer community to step up and help train that next generation of workers, he said. We have to create more opportunities for internships and apprenticeships if were going to build a work force here in Tampa Bay.Health careCarl Patten, director of health care policy for Florida Blue in Jacksonville, discussed the future of health care, much of which hinges on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In general, spending on health care has slowed in recent years, even falling behind the rate of inflation one year, he explained. But that was a result of the recession and the coming year is sure to see an increase in health care spending. The question is, to what extent? Patten said. That would depend on how the continual implementation of the Affordable Care Act plays out and how both advocates and opponents of different aspects of the federal law will fight for, or against, its implementation. There are a lot of strange bedfellows and strange enemies that are going to pop up as a result of this, he said. The Affordable Care Act isnt the end solution to the problem of the immovable object versus irresistible force, Patten explained. Rising health care costs, particularly Medicare, are up against the immovable fact that the country typically doesnt want to pay more than 18 percent of GDP in taxes, he said. The obvious solutions growing the economy or cutting health care services or raising taxes havent been working out. Were going to have to figure out how to get more value out of the money we spend, Patten said. We spend $2.8 trillion a year in health care, far more than any country.EnergyAlex Glenn, president of Duke Energy Florida, reviewed the state of energy resources. Overall electricity usage per customer is down, despite the company serving more customers overall, thanks to increasing energy efficiencies, he said. Glenn discussed the merits and drawbacks of various energy sources Duke Energy continues to pursue. The company currently relies on natural gas for now a cheap source of energy, but historically the most volatile in cost for 60 percent of its energy. Projections place shale gas, obtained within the United States through hydraulic fracturing or fracking, as the future source of reliable energy, he said. Renewable solar energy continues to be an expensive and less effective source specifically twice as expensive as natural gas, even factoring in reimbursements from government incentives, while only being a fifth as effective, Glenn said. The key to success in solar is storage, he added. Duke Energy will continue to invest in ways to store the energy during peak sunshine for use when Tampa Bay customers need the most power, particularly between 6 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., he said. Glenn also said addressing the areas transportation needs played a part in energy efficiencies, making a plug for the Greenlight Pinellas plan. Weve got to address our transportation issues. If we dont, were going to get left behind, he said.Income inequalityPhilip Porter, economics professor at the University of South Florida, was charged with concluding the event with an economic forecast. He focused almost entirely on the problem of income inequality. A variety of factors led to the giant gap between the top 1 percent those who make $400,000 a year or more and everyone else, he explained. While globalization had the unforeseen consequence of creating more demand for the countys highly skilled talent and less demand for unskilled workers at home, factors such as tax law changes and the shift to paying CEOs based on the stock of the company rather than its overall success unnecessarily increased the pay of those at the top, Porter said. The problem now is the top 1 percent includes the members of Congress, who work to create, for example, agricultural subsidies for their income peers larger companies rather than small farmers who compete directly against them, he said. Even Social Security is a plan that takes from the majority and gives to the richest age demographic: those 65 or older, Porter said. Even local tax dollars often are used to incentive high earners like larger businesses or professional sports teams, well stocked with earners in the top 1 percent to stay or move into the area. Some income inequality is necessary to incentive those working their way up the ladder with rewards for their hard work, Porter said. But todays inequality is not the result of normal market forces, but rather the 1 percent supporting their own. My sense is you make income equality by letting the market take its place, Porter concluded. You interfere with the market, you get disruptions that look like 11 people vs. 3.5 billion, and thats unsustainable. Big Brothers Big Sisters CEO steps downLARGO Effective June 27, Susan Rolston will be retiring from the position of CEO for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas. Rolston has spent her entire career adding potential to the lives of children, first with the Pinellas County School District and then at Big Brothers Big Sisters. She joined the agency in March of 2001. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the board members and executive staff by working together to enrich the lives of children who need us the most, Rolston shared in her retirement announcement to her staff members. Rolston will leave the agency with a scholarship endowment for graduating Littles, designed to help break generational poverty. Over the past decade, the agency has accomplished substantial growth in the number of children served under Rolstons leadership, from 400 in 2001 to 1,433 in 2013. Being recognized locally and nationally as an evidence-based social service nonprofit that provides high quality mentoring to children is extremely rewarding, Rolston stated. Reaching that level of achievement in the midst of diversifying revenue sources was a satisfying, yet aggressive challenge. As a champion for children living in adversity, Rolston expects to stay engaged with local programs and activities that will give children in need the opportunity for a better life. Dave Fox, president of Big Brothers Big Sisters Board of Directors and senior vice president of Manufacturing & Advertiser Content at ValPak, thanked Rolston for her leadership on behalf of the board of directors. Susans legacy will continue to further the agency under the steadfast direction of the strong team established during her years of service, he said.

School newsSchools selected for AP Capstone programBoca Ciega, Northeast and Countryside high schools are three of nearly 100 schools worldwide selected to implement AP Capstone an innovative program that allows students to engage in the rigorous development of skills critical for success in college inquiry, research, collaboration, and writing. The program includes a two-course sequence: Advanced Placement Seminar and AP Research. The first of the two AP Capstone courses, AP Seminar, will start in fall 2014. The program is designed to be taken in sequence during the junior and senior year, targeting students who have passed or have the potential to pass an AP exam. We are one of the few districts in the country to have an opportunity to offer AP Capstone to students at three of our high schools, said Pinellas County Schools Superintendent Michael Grego in a press release. In the coming years, we hope to expand this innovative program to even more high schools within the district to prepare a broader, more diverse student population for college and career success. Current sophomores at Boca Ciega, Northeast and Countryside will be encouraged to apply to the program if they have passed or have the potential to pass an AP exam. The three high schools offering AP Capstone will host informational fairs in February. Northeast High School hosted its 10th grade College and Career Ready Night on Feb. 4. Countryside High School hosted its Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment Fair on Feb. 5. Boca Ciega High School will host its College, Career and Registration Fair on Monday, Feb. 10, 6 p.m., for current 10th grade students currently enrolled in AP courses or who have the potential to pass an AP exam. The fair will be presented in the main auditorium. Current 10th grade students will register for classes for the 2014-15 school year during the week of Feb. 10. Developed in response to feedback from higher education faculty and college admission officers, AP Capstone complements the in-depth, subjectspecific rigor of AP courses and exams currently offered at the three schools. The seminar course will equip students with the power to explore academic and real-world issues through an interdisciplinary lens and consider multiple points of view. The AP Research course will allow students to design, plan, and conduct a yearlong mentored investigation on a topic of their choosing. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher on the AP Seminar and AP Research Exams and scores of 3 or higher on four AP Exams of their choosing will receive the AP Capstone Diploma.Vought receives deans list recognitionCLEARWATER Ethan Vought of Seminole received the deans list award at Clearwater Christian College for scholastic achievement during the 2013 fall semester.

I was a member of this group for many years, before realizing that the expenses of belonging to the clown alley were becoming too much. Now, let me give a bit of background as to why. Sure there were dues to belong to the club, but that was only a very small portion of the costs involved. Keep in mind that this is a group who volunteers its services to the community of Largo, and yes, at the time, in association with the City of Largo. Besides dues, the City of Largo required that everyone have a recreation card. Thats a bit of money, especially when our whole family was involved And then each person had to pay for the use of the Citys Community Center room for the one hour of use each month per person. And this is all for a group who volunteers for the city at events the city requests clowns for. Remember, this is a clown group who volunteers their time and materials, such as balloons, face paints etc. If you are unaware, these items can be quite expensive. And remember volunteering. Florida Clown Day has always been one of my favorite times spent with the children of Largo and surrounding areas. I have enjoyed taking my little clown car, and my three children and we have enjoyed clowning with the kids. This all makes me contemplate how the city of Largo must not realize the value of these clowns and their services. I also do paid clowning. The City obviously either has no idea the value of these clowns or just doesnt care. To have over one hundred clowns available to the community at Florida Clown Day is an event that is hard to beat. It is not the fault of a clown alley who volunteers their time that the city is so irresponsible with city money that they need to charge volunteers to volunteer for the benefit of the City. It just frustrates me that the city of Largo is trying to spin this as if Uptown Clowns has been getting some kind of sweetheart deal. Just saying. Dean Adams Largo2014 perspective on Roe versus WadeEditor: In 1973, the same year Roe versus Wades Abortion Act was passed, co-workers disclosed to me that they knew of a single woman who had already had one abortion, and was in the process of scheduling a second. When I asked them why, they indicated that they believed the expectant mother was single, had no supporting family, church, job or benefits, and was not of sound mind since having taken the life of her first and only child at age 18. In 1949, a single mother with no job, three young mouths to feed and having recently experienced her husbands death, in the midst of severe loneliness and grief, becomes pregnant. Worse yet, she is left in a foreign city to fend for herself and her children. Somehow, she manages to struggle through the experience, remarries a former high-school sweetheart in 1951, and moves back into her small hometown to raise her family. While these two stories share very similar circumstances at the start, their outcomes at the finish line are extremely different. On Feb. 8, the 1949 single mother will turn 92. She is an amazing individual in stature, courage, grace and dignity, with a healthy respect for life and for countless others. During the last 64 years, I have come to know her from a much deeper and broader perspective as to her capabilities, commitment and maternal love. There is nothing she failed to sacrifice for any of the family members throughout their adolescence and well into their adulthood with their respective families, a beacon or measure for others to follow. Isnt it ironic then, that after all of this, she finds herself once again in the same dilemma for she must now face the very same issues and questions of the unborn or soon to be aborted child. When she cant speak, eat or stand-up for herself and life is coming to an end or her life-sustaining functions begin to fail as they will for all of us who have been given the opportunity to travel lifes journey and all of the wonderful and unknown experiences it has to offer, who then will be best able to speak, care and take action on her behalf if not for the unborn child. Lorian J. Tripp Largo A local hero Editor: Step out your door and begin walking and you will likely not go very far before you pass one of the many heroes living in this area who have yet to be recognized and rightfully praised. Just look a bit closer, for example, at the following life of a local man who fits this category all too well, and then judge for yourself if you would also call him a hero. From his earliest days, he had no doubt that music would be a necessary part of his life. Back in the 1940s and 1950s, as he helped to build army tanks at Baldwin Locomotive Works, he was working along with, and playing music for, Mario Lanza, who was still studying opera at that time. He went on to play guitar in the Westinghouse band, and then bass in a variety of other bands, with noted stars like Billy Holiday, Cab Calloway, and Dave Brubeck. But all of those impressive times did not, of course, make him a hero. That would come later. Much later. After working at Westinghouse, building generators for battleships, he then moved on, and, for the next 36 years, he owned and ran a car lot until he finally retired. From that point on, he had to cope with the next big challenge in his life, his advancing age. All the way up through his 70s and 80s, he held his own quite well. But when he reached the age of 90, things began to fall apart. That job at Westinghouse, building generators, included a good amount of asbestos dust filling the air, at a time when that threat to health attracted little attention, fluid began to appear in his lungs. And then he actually began to fall. During the next few years, he fell eight times, breaking his ribs and both shoulder blades. Aspirin was prescribed for the pain, and that gave him bleeding ulcers. On one of his falls, he tore off most of the skin from his left elbow down to his wrist, leaving a large area of the flesh beneath exposed. His skin by then had dried out, and it became so fragile that simply touching it too hard would cause a pool of blood to appear beneath it. Now comes the amazing part. His name is Vito Prudente, a little guy, 137 pounds, and, up to this very moment, after all that life has inflicted upon him, he not only keeps going day to day, but he does so always with a cheerful word and a smile for everyone he meets. He keeps moving among us, with a cane and a shuffle, and with that sly little pixie look of his, so full of joy at simply still being alive that he brightens every room he enters. Vito is one of the bravest individuals I have ever known. At age 94 now, and still going strong, he represents, by any definition, that category of a true hero who persists, with all the odds against him, to conquer each day with his own joy, and to readily share that joy with others. Bill Glasser Clearwater Feeding fish in the North AtlanticI sympathize with all the sick passengers on the several cruise ships weve been reading about in the past few weeks. Im amazed that the cruise lines are still operating, and that vacation travelers continue to risk ghastly gastro-intestinal ailments by booking passage on any of those floating palaces. These reports take me back 65 years, to my first ocean cruise and the disaster I experienced. The vessel was far from luxurious. It was a U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Bristol, based in Newport, R.I. I had boarded the ship only a few days earlier after completing radioman training at the Norfolk, Va., naval base. I was 18 and had joined the Navy the previous summer in order to escape being drafted into the Army. I feared dying in an obscure foxhole after the Soviet Union declared war on the western world. Im not sure why I thought death on the high seas was preferable to death in a foxhole. Further evidence of my mental acuity was the fact that I had suffered from motion sickness from infancy onward. Id get sick in the family car, on a playground swing, on amusement park rides, or in a canoe moving through a frog pond. In the face of all that, what did I do? I joined the Navy!A week after I boarded the Bristol, we went on training maneuvers in the north Atlantic, a region famous for its stormy waters, especially in March. I spent the ensuing fortnight in two places: clinging to my bunk with a bucket beside me, or dry-heaving over a rail outside the radio shack. Crew members passing by made sympathetic remarks such as Still feeding the fishes, Driver? I was useless to perform any duties. At any single moment I was afraid I was going to die. Two minutes later I feared that I might not. As I lay immobilized in my bunk, shipmates kept playing a rhythm-and-blues song called I Want a Bow-Legged Woman, performed by Bull Moose Jackson. The lyrics are branded into my soul.When the Bristol returned to Newport, I was prepared to be shot, given a medical discharge or transferred to an Army base in the Sahara desert. Instead, the Navy sent me to a nut-house. The official title was Ward L (the psychiatric unit) of the Chelsea Naval Hospital, just outside downtown Boston. The Navy figured that motion sickness was a form of mental illness. For two weeks my companions were sailors incapacitated by a variety of mental/emotional ailments. One was a convicted murderer, transferred from a Navy prison to be treated for epilepsy. Another was a man so homesick he had attempted suicide. A third was a transvestite deserter who was found performing in a Boston gay bar. Then there was a chief petty officer who had suffered for years from chronic unexplained dysentery. Obviously, my motion sickness was a ready-made affliction to help me fit easily into this bizarre gallery. My treatment consisted of several steps. One was dime-store psychoanalysis. Seaman Driver, did your parents beat you? Did you ever get a girl pregnant? Do you get a thrill from seeing a chicken? When those incisive queries failed to identify any Freudian traumas, the Navy therapists attached a dozen or so electrodes to my skull and measured the radioactive beeps and blurps that could be detected. Once it was clear that I wasnt a psychopath I was assigned critical duties such as sweeping and swabbing the hospitals floors. And so it went, until the day a doctor summoned me to hear the verdict that would alter the course of my life. Seaman Driver, our conclusion is this: we feel you are an average, not-especially-bright young man whose perennial vomiting while traveling on erratically-moving objects is genuine, i.e., youre not faking it in the hope of being assigned to shore duty. We have no idea what causes your problem. So were sending you back to your ship, with this bottle of pills. The bottle contained a newly-developed drug called Dramamine. It was a miracle. Ive lived with it ever since. I will not board an aircraft or an ocean-going vessel without first popping a Dramamine tablet. Its only unwelcome side effect is drowsiness, which has occasionally lowered the trajectory of my otherwise meteoric career. But thats another column, perhaps. Unfortunately, from what I read, the recent cruise ship plagues cannot be prevented or easily cured by taking a pill. The only apparent solution is for the traveling public to steer clear of ocean voyages. Im all for that. One of the joys of my life is the immense satisfaction of staying home with the TV and watching Rick Steves schlepping all over Europe.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver The luxury of recycling our trashI dont remember thinking much about trash as a kid. I was fortunate to have a brother and that was his job. We didnt recycle. Not many did back then. I dont remember doing trash when in college or even after I got my first apartment. Im sure I took it somewhere and someone hauled it away. Trash became part of my life not long after I married for the first time. We rented a house on 100 acres well outside Fayetteville, Ark. It came with a fireplace, plenty of well water, a 100-year-old garden, and a view that just kept on giving. But no one picked up the trash. The county provided a dumpster across the highway from a little convenience store about 10 miles away. We drove there a couple of times a month with a pickup truck filled with trash bags. The dumpster was usually overflowing. We finally purchased a home on 10 acres a little closer to town. The well water smelled like rotten eggs. The old oak barn had no fireplaces. There was no garden and no one came for the garbage. But, it was ours and we loved it. Funny thing, the only legal place to take our trash was that same little dumpster, except now it was about 20 miles away. We began to recycle everything we could. We sold our aluminum cans at a beer distributing company. We took our paper to a place run by a nonprofit for the disabled. No one took plastic, steel cans or glass. We composted religiously, trying to turn that sticky red clay ground into soil so we could garden. We minimized our trash as much as we could. And monthly, we filled the back of the pickup and drove 20 miles to the dumpster that was usually overflowing. Twenty-two years later, I parted ways with my first husband and moved to town. For the first time in nearly 20 years, I lived in a place where someone came and hauled away the garbage. There was a nifty little wooden rack with a row of metal garbage cans. I used them every day just because I could. Only those who have lived without could understand the luxury. When I moved to Florida a couple of years later with my soon-to-be second husband, we lived in an apartment. Residents had to carry their trash to a dumpster on the other side of the complex. I took our trash to the dumpster most every day at first. Then I figured out when it would be full to overflowing and skipped those days. Apartment life really wasnt our thing, so a year later we moved to a house in Belleair. The city sent around garbage trucks twice a week. I missed the luxury of being able to go to that dumpster any time I wanted. If you got busy and forgot it was trash day, you were out of luck. Weve lived in Largo for nearly 10 years now and bought our home a little more than three years ago. Weve concentrated on reducing our trash by recycling and composting. It doesnt matter if we forget a trash day because we rarely have enough for two. But we almost always have three containers full of recycling, and theyre usually overflowing. Last week, we received our new recycling container. And its huge. I cant tell you how excited I am. The city of Largo is providing mixed recycling service. Theyll be no more sorting. For us, the service starts this week. We can start putting in glass and steel cans, and juice and milk cartons, too. You have to rinse them out just like the aluminum, but thats no big deal. We can recycle plastic containers #3 through #7. Im already visualizing the empty space where the stacks of kitty litter buckets in the garage are now. We wont have to hold the paper when it rains because the container has a lid. I do most of my work on the computer, but I still love hardcopy. Being able to get rid of most of it every week makes me giddy with joy. Some may not appreciate the luxury. But I sure do. Im anxious to see if my neighbors who dont recycle now will start. It couldnt be easier. Only those who have lived without can understand the luxury. Thank you Largo.Suzette Porter is Internet services manager for Tampa Bay Newspapers.

At least thats what the staff of Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater is hoping for after investing $1 million in a marketing campaign that targets the two northern cities. Speaking to members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council on Jan. 29, D.T. Minich, executive director of the Pinellas County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said his staff has designed a program that uses a number of catchy slogans at key locations in those two cities to get their message across. What we do is very unique when we market, Minich said. Most destinations, when they run a campaign, have one or two slogans that they use nationwide. When we go into New York or Chicago, we customize those messages. We want them to know we understand their markets and we want to talk to them. Minich said Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater has purchased advertising space in 800 Subway or Metro cars throughout the New York area. We have banners up above in the Subway cars, coming in from Long Island and New Jersey, Minich said. When youre going into the Subway, we have about 48 of these lighted panels throughout Manhattan. So as you walk into the Subway station, youre going to see the beach message and then when you get in the station youre going to see it again. The message includes a serene beach scene with slogans such as: Manhattan? Were partial to the margarita Our daily commute? Walking down to the beach Wake up in the city that never sleets New York, New York warm up, warm up. The campaign also includes a beach message on the side of four double-decker buses in New York and two in Chicago. Also in Chicago, CVB has taken over every possible advertising space in the Ogilvie Transportation Center. Ogilvie is the connecting station that goes to all the upscale suburbs on the north side, Minich said. When I say taken over, were on the sides of the escalators and we bought every single advertising space in Ogilvie. Were even on the floor. When you go up an escalator, it says Winters looking up and when you come down the escalator it says come down to a warm beach. Among the slogans to be used in the Windy City are: Rush Street? Seriously, whats the hurry? (with an image of a beach) We can show you 35 magnificent miles No Loop but a circular thing called the sun Chicago, youll be bullish about this. CVB has also invested in coffee sleeves with such phrases as Sunshine is the new caffeine. and Coffee can only warm you up so much.Tourism marketing efforts target New York, ChicagoAbout 200,000 sleeves will be used in Chicago coffee shops and another 80,000 in New York, Minich said. Just in case the targeted market misses the message in those locations, when commuters reach an elevator they will see it again, or at least think about being in a warmer place. We bought every possible elevator (video) screen available in New York and Chicago, said Minich. Then at the bottom of the screen, whats cool is we have real-time temperatures in Chicago and Pinellas County. CVB also will experiment with gorilla marketing, an advertising strategy using low-cost unconventional methods, when the next major snow storm hits Chicago or New York. Weve hired a company to go throughout New York and Chicago, at eight different locations in New York and five in Chicago, and theyre going to build huge snow sculptures, like our sand sculptures here, Minich said. Theyre going to feature a dolphin, a guy (paddle) boarding and palm trees. Theyre going to be 6to 8-feet-tall and theyre in prime locations. This will happen with the next snowstorm. We think this will get a ton of media attention because this hasnt ever been done before. Altogether, Minich said the combined New York-Chicago campaign is expected to create 976 million impressions, which is an online advertising measure of the number of times an ad is seen. In addition to the New York-Chicago program, CVB has embarked for the first time with a marketing effort in Toronto using such slogans as Toboggans? Were riding waves and Follow the geese south, they know what theyre doing. CVB has also partnered with Floridas Natural with a message on 12 million cartons of orange juice. We have the entire side panel with a chance to win a trip to St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Minich said. This will go from now to April. Well also be featured in Better Homes and Gardens and Midwest Living. The catch phrase for this campaign is If only they could bottle this feeling. Well here it is in a carton. The early results are good, Minich said. Our phone lines and our website are going through the roof, he said. Its not only what were doing but its Mother Nature at its best too. As a testimony, beach hotels are almost completely sold out for March. Were near sell-out capacity for March and into April, Minich said. Its a great combination. Weve had all the bad weather up north, which gets people thinking Ive got to get out of here for spring break. Then Easter is later this year too (April 20) and that helps. On other topics, Minich said: International travelers, primarily from Germany and the United Kingdom, account for 18 percent of the countys tourism, which is expected to grow to about 25 percent with COPA Airlines now operating four flights a week from Panama into Tampa. Latin America is a whole new market and its going to open up a lot of opportunities for us, Minich said. Pinellas County will be featured on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May. CVBs 108-page Gulf To Bay magazine will be distributed in the Sunday, March 2 edition of the New York Times and later in the spring in the Florida edition of the New York Times, as well as the Orlando Sentinel, Florida edition of the Wall Street Journal and Tampa Bay Times. Altogether, 525,000 copies of the publication are being distributed this year.

Kerryn Ellson The Vorac GroupPinellas receives $200,000 defense grantTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott announced Jan. 24 that local defense partners in Pinellas County were awarded $200,000 through Floridas Defense Infrastructure Grant. Pinellas County was one of eight counties to receive a Defense Infrastructure Grant, which allotted $1.6 million to eight governments statewide. Scott said, These investments are critical to the continued growth and protection of Floridas military sector. This $200,000 investment will allow Pinellas County to address encroachment and buffering, transportation and access, and security issues. Across Florida, our military servicemen and women are dedicating their lives to protect our state and nation, and we must continue to fund these vital programs and protect the over 758,000 jobs the military and defense industry supports in Florida. Floridas military and defense industry is responsible for $73.4 billion, or 9.4 percent, of Floridas gross state product, which translates to jobs for more than 758,000 Floridians. In Pinellas County, the military and defense industry is credited with $3.61 billion in economic impact and 39,702 jobs. This grant has been utilized for more than 15 years as a key tool in maintaining Floridas reputation as the most military-friendly state in the nation. Sen. Jack Latvala said, Local military installations have long been an important part of our lives in Pinellas County. The grant funds will be put to good use building the pedestrian walkway at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater. Sen. Jeff Brandes said, Gov. Scott and the Legislature know the importance of supporting our military families and I applaud them for awarding $200,000 to Pinellas County. Rep. Ed Hooper said, The impact of Floridas military bases is often overlooked as an economic driver for the state. More than $70 billion is inserted annually into our economy by more than 750,000 personnel living in our state and, as a result, nearly 40,000 jobs have been created right here in Pinellas County. These grants go a long way to help preserve this economic asset. Rep. Larry Ahern said, The grant will help our military bases with much needed infrastructure improvements. These improvements will keep both military personnel and local citizens safe and secure. I applaud Gov. Scott and our Legislature for addressing this need. Rep. Jamie Grant said, These grants go a long way in helping preserve the economic impact our military bases and families have on Florida. I sincerely thank Gov. Scott and the Legislature for continuing to support the military in Pinellas County and across the state. Rep. Kathleen Peters said, Floridas military sector continues to be among the strongest in the nation thanks to critical funding from these two programs. Gov. Scott and the Legislature continue to support these programs and, in turn, allow us to keep more than $3.6 billion in economic impact here in Pinellas County. I thank them for awarding this funding to our community. Mike Meidel, director of Pinellas County Economic Development said, Pinellas County is honored to be able, with our partners, to enhance the campus of the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater at the St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport (PIE) through this Defense Infrastructure Grant. Clearwater is the largest and busiest Air Station in the Coast Guard, and with this grant we will address safety concerns and improve pedestrian access. The USCG Air Station Clearwater, the U.S. Army Reserve and the Florida National Guard employ over 700 personnel at PIE, and generate nearly $60 million annually in direct and indirect earnings in Pinellas County. The Florida Defense Grants Programs are administered by Enterprise Florida Inc. The grants are awarded annually, on a project-prioritized basis, to communities hosting military installations.

By supporting the passage of a constitutional amendment to declare that corporations are not persons and money is not speech, Greenman will explain how groups and individuals can lead the way to restoring democracy. Since the year 2000, Greenman has focused on efforts to eliminate corporate personhood. At the UU Associations General Assembly in June 2013, Greenman and his team obtained the necessary delegate votes to pass an Action of Immediate Witness, which encourages organizations and individuals around the country to support the passage of a constitutional amendment to declare that corporations are not persons and money is not speech. In addition, he will discuss how those in the extended community can effectively lead the way to restoring democracy. All are invited to attend and learn about this growing movement.

Sports 17A Seminole Beacon, February 6, 2014 Obituaries FLORENCE TAYLOR May 20, 1914 January 24, 2014 Her family is sorry to announce that after a marvelous life of almost 100 years, Florence Ida Parker Taylor (nee Vint) has passed away in Toronto. She was predeceased by her husband, Hugh B. Parker (1963); second husband, Leon A. Taylor (2004); and stepson, David Taylor (1990). She has left wonderful memories for her children and their spouses: Carol Shaw (Wayne), Hugh C. Parker, (Judy), and Joy Parker Blackwood (Billy Ray), and for her stepchildren, Peter Taylor, Patricia Taylor and Glen Taylor (Joanna). Florence enjoyed and was loved by her grandchildren, Ross Galloway (Liz Marshall), Lynn Galloway (Nicholas Goboly), Christine Parker (Todd Joyes), Karen Craig (Ryan), and Victoria and Leilani Taylor, as well as great grandchildren, Brody Galloway and Quinn and Abigail Joyes. She will be missed by her sister, Lois Parker; sister-in-law, Dora Davenport and niece, Joan Munoz, as well as by Murray Galloway, Jill Burns, and countless friends in Florida, Montreal, Ontario and elsewhere. Florence loved life. Born in Toronto, she attended Balmy Beach and Williamson Road Public Schools, Moulton Ladies College, and Shaws Business School. She was a talented musician with dreams of a concert pianist career; a dream cut short by the depression of the 1930s. She loved participating in sports of every kind, and continued to swim lengths of the pool almost daily at her home in Florida and at Amica at Bayview, until well into her nineties. Florence loved travelling and saw much of the world. Her main passion was her love of, and devotion to, Christian Science. She was a Christian Science Practitioner, and was active in every avenue of her church. Having lived for 36 years in Florida after her husband retired, it was quite a decision to return to Toronto at age 92 to be closer to her family. But she easily made friends at Amica and participated in everything from bridge games and movie nights to the glee club and the Sudoku group. She was one of the last members of the Monitor Club of Toronto. Thanks to Ruth, Beverly, Novlette and Solange for their loving support and care, as well as to the staff at Amica. The love of each of us goes with you on your on-going journey, Mom! An afternoon to remember Florence Taylor will be held at a later date. In lieu of owers, a contribution to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.

Four years ago, 400 runners registered for the run. The following year it grew to 750 and last year the total was 900. This year, organizers expect at least 1,000 runners, making it the largest ever. Way back when, the first race attracted only 48 runners, said Danielle Felten, Belleairs special events coordinator. Now were expecting over 1,000 because more and more people are talking about it. Felten says the parade route may have something to do with its growing popularity. The route goes through down and along Bayview and the bluffs and it gives everyone a great view of the beautiful scenery, she said. Even the walkers like it, weve gotten rave reviews. The runners just have a good time on that route. One of the regular participants in the race agrees with that assessment. Jim White has been running in the race for years. I enjoy it, it goes past the houses and the bluffs, it is a nice run, he said. The athletic websites all bill it as a picturesque run so it has some attraction because of that. White says he is not surprised that the event is growing every year. It is well advertised and is a nice town event, he said. Im hoping to do real well this year but I have some training to do. Ive been sick and had a twisted ankle but Im back at it now. Another reason why the race is popular according to White is the after-party. Felten acknowledges that it is something that attracts the runners. I can only say the party is the best time ever, she said. Every registered runner gets to attend the party and besides entertainment there is free food and drink for everybody, all you can eat. Belleair resident Amy Maguire, her husband Sean and daughters Megan, 12 and Molly, 10 are regulars in the race. No one is more enthusiastic about the event than Maguire. There are so many people from all over who come to the race and they make it exciting, she said. Last year I talked to people from St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs and they told me how much they love to come to Belleair for the race. Maguire says she and her family have been participating in the race almost since the beginning. You establish milestones when you do something like this, she said. When my youngest was just 7 she actually ran the entire race. It was a community event and she was with all her friends and they ran the race. They never would have dreamed they could run that far. Maguire says she and her family intend on participating in the race for years to come. The race was started 12 years ago as a 10k run and was held as a fundraiser for the Rec Center. Back then it was held in the morning. Five years ago it was changed to a 5K in the evening and that is when its popularity took off. People come back year after year, said Felten. This year one woman who has been participating for years told me she finally registered before the early deadline; she signed up early to get the discount. Although serious runners from all over participate in the race, there is more to the event than that. In addition to the 5k run, there is also a 1-mile fun run and nobody necessarily needs to run, participants can walk the course as well. As long as they are registered and are paid up they qualify for that after-party, which some have said is the only reason they show up. The race is held on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 5:30 p.m. Participants can register online at imathlete.com and look for Belleair Sunset, or in person at the Dimmitt Community Center. Online registration closes on Feb. 12, but in-person registration continues right through the day of the event. The discount date is passed so the registration cost is $30 for adults and $20 for children from 5 to 15. For that registrants get a Tshirt, awards for the top finishers and the post-race party. People need to go because it really is fun, said Felten. It is really the deal of the century.Dozens of runners cram into Belleairs Town Hall to pick up their kits for last years Sunset 5K race. Soccer player Andrew Goodman, left, was recently selected as BeefOBradys Student-Athlete of the Week. In addition to playing all positions for Seminole High School, he also plays for the club team Tampa Bay United. With a 3.0 GPA, he will be attending St. Petersburg College in the fall.

PETERSBURG The 20-time Grammy award winner Pat Metheny will bring his Unity Group to the Tampa Bay area for a one-night special performance set for Sunday, Feb. 9, 7 p.m., at The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S. Tickets start at $45. Call 893-7832 or visit www.themahaffey .com. Methenys body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras and ballet pieces with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical. Pat Metheny, Ben Williams, Chris Potter, Giulio Carmassi and Antonio Sanchez are the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Pat Metheny Unity Group is an extension of Methenys Unity Band project. In 2012, he partnered with Sanchez (drums), Williams (bass) and Potter (saxophone) as a quartet. The group toured Europe and the United States. In 2013, Metheny sought to capitalize on the bands success and officially announced the formal formation of the Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Unity Band project was life-changing for me said guitarist Pat Metheny in a press release Ted Kurland Associates. I have led many groups of talented musicians, but what went down with that band on a night-after-night basis was inspiring in a way that was really unlike anything else. When we did our last gig, as we walked off the stage all I could think about was that I didnt want it to end, and I knew it was the same for Chris, Antonio and Ben, too. Metheny also announced an anticipated album and world tour. For the past few months, I have been trying to find a way to extend our time together, Metheny said. At the same time, I have been feeling the pull to do the kind of lush and harmonically dense music with lots more written material that has always been a big part of my larger groups and projects. One night I woke up with the tantalizing idea of really taking Unity concept all the way and forming a platform for the first time that could cover the entire spectrum Pat Metheny Unity Group to play at Mahaffey Theaterof things that I have done as a bandleader over the years under one roof. With this lineup, everything from Bright Size Life to Secret Story to all of my Group stuff to Song X could be within range and more. With the new incarnation of the project, a new face joined the lineup. An incredible musician appeared on my radar thanks to a recommendation from my friend, bassist Will Lee, Metheny said. His name is Giulio Carmassi. He comes from Italy and I guess you could say that he is a multi-instrumentalist, but that barely scratches the surface of what he does. Carmassi is a piano and keyboard player, and also plays woodwinds and brass, guitars, bass, drums and, according to Metheny, he sings like an angel. He told me he was inspired by seeing one of my bands perform in Italy when he was young and often thought about having the multi-instrumentalist seat on one of my projects, Metheny said. With Guilio added to the core just about anything will be possible. The Pat Metheny Unity Group released the new album Kin Feb. 4.Pat MethenyAccording to the biography provided by Ted Kurland Associates, Metheny was born in Lees Summit, Mo., in 1954, into a musical family. He began playing trumpet at age 8, and, at age 12, he switched to guitar. By his mid-teens, Metheny was playing regularly with some of the best jazz musicians in Kansas City and, in return, earning priceless on-the-bandstand experience. Methenys introduction to the international jazz scene came in 1974. Over the course of his three-year stint with vibraphone great Gary Burton, Metheny displayed his soon-to-become trademarked playing style, which blended the loose and flexible articulation customarily reserved for horn players with an advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility. His debut album soon followed: Bright Size Life (1975) helped re-imagine the traditional jazz guitar sound for a new generation of players. Metheny has continued to redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument. Over the years, Metheny has won countless polls as Best Jazz Guitarist and plenty of awards, including three gold records for Still Life (Talking), Letter from Home and Secret Story.

PETERSBURG A year after their outstanding Florida debut with Caberfeidh Productions, Cassie and Maggie MacDonald are returning to St. Petersburg. Cassie and Maggie MacDonald will perform Friday, Feb. 7, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show. Call 822-3590 or visit www.mypalladium.org. Cassie and Maggie are 2011 Galaxie Rising star award winners, and 2012 ECMA nominees for Roots/Traditional Recording of the Year for their debut album Fresh Heirs. The evening will feature original and traditional Celtic music ranging from Cape Breton reels to Antigonish polkas and more. According to their press kit, Cassie and Maggie encompass everything you could ask for in a musical act. Billed as exciting and innovative, they have found the perfect balance between musical integrity, and sheer entertainment. Cassie and Maggie stay true to their Celtic roots while charting and testing the boundaries of traditional music. They are known for bringing a breath of fresh air to the genre with their original compositions and arrangements. Sisters, cohorts and collaborators, Cassie and Maggie have been enchanting audiences far and wide with their infectious energy, driving rhythms and lilting melodies. Born in Halifax, with strong roots in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, the musicians got their start wowing audiences across Canada with their unique blend of original and traditional Celtic music. Cassies fiddle playing has been described as sweet and elegant with just the right amount of raw power. Maggies piano playing has an irresistible drive and compliments Cassies playing perfectly. Together these delightful sisters are far more than the average fiddle and piano duo: Cassie is an award winning highland and step dancer and also sings harmony for Maggie. In addition to her virtuosic piano playing, Maggie sings lead, plays guitar and is also an accomplished step dancer. Their music fits together seamlessly, encompassing various styles from Cape Breton reels to Antigonish Polkas, Quebecois fiddling and footwork to down east standards. Their vocal harmonies are sweet yet powerful and their step dancing exact and exciting, showing off their youthful charm and energy. The siblings were born to a family with a rich musical heritage. Raised in Nova Scotia, a province steeped in musical culture and traditions, the girls have used their unique upbringing as a springboard for their own brand of Celtic Roots music. They are equally at home playing tunes passed down through generations of musicians as they are seamlessly weaving themes from the Moonlight Sonata into sets of surefire reels. Appearing on stages across Canada, the United States, France, Germany, Bermuda and the UK, since their first festival performance at the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival in Ontario, the girls have gone on to be soloists in the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo and International Polizi Show in Hamburg, Germany. They also performed for the French Ambassador in Paris, France. Cassie and Maggie played at the independence day celebrations on Bermuda Island, the Lunenburg Folk Harbour festival, Celtic Classic festival, Stan Rogers International Songwriters festival and Festival Memoires et Racines in Jolliette, Quebec. This year will prove to be the busiest and most exciting yet with performances at the Milwaukee Irish Festival, Celtic Colours International festival and Ocrafolk festival in NC, again, just to name a few.

PETERSBURG Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh, a special multi-media, private artifact exhibition, is on display through April 27 at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S. FHM is one of three U.S. cities to host the exhibition. Prior to its arrival in the Tampa Bay area, it visited Chicago and New York. After its run at FHM, the collection will return to Israel. Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh is not a traveling exhibition but a collection of personal items thats likely never to be seen together again. Entrusted to organizers by Seneshs nephews, the exhibition includes a widerange of personal artifacts including her diary, a newspaper she published with her brother, and a collection of personal notebooks and photographs. Senesh is widely known as the author of Walking to Caesarea, her 1942 poem that was set to music in 1945 and is largely considered the virtual second anthem for the state of Israel. Recently performed by Regina Spektor at a concert in Israel this past August, it was also prominently featured in the movie Schindlers List. Organized by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City, the 2,500-square-foot exhibition also includes audio/visual displays by Roberta Grossman, the awardwinning director of Blessed is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh. We could not be more thrilled that St. Pete is one of three cities to receive this very important chronicle of one of the Holocausts most respected heroes, said Elizabeth Gelman, director of the Florida Holocaust Museum. A strong, resourceful, courageous woman, her story continues to inspire people across the globe. We expect the exhibition to draw visitors from across the state of Florida.About Hannah Senesh There are people whose glorious memory continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living these lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way. Senesh wrote these words in a letter to her mothers family in Dombvr, Hungary, upon the death of her great-aunt Betti Mama, in September 1940. Senesh, a young woman who took part in a secret British mission so that she might also help Jews in Europe, was one of those people. She also was the talented poet who wrote those words that would, along with her diary, be read by millions of people around the world. Seneshs life was short but her memory continues to impact millions. Senesh was born on July 17, 1921, into a Hungarian-Jewish middle class family. She went to a private Protestant secondary school where she was one of a small number of Jewish students. While she excelled there, she also eventually encountered institutionalized anti-Semitism. Her response was to become an ardent Zionist intent on settling in Palestine. She left Budapest for Palestine in September 1939, two weeks after Germanys invasion of Poland. After completing two years of studies at the Agricultural School for Young Women in Nahalal, she joined the newly organized kibbutz, Sedot Yam. In the summer of 1943, wanting to help in the effort to defeat the Nazis and to do something for the Jewish remnant in Europe, Hannah accepted an invitation to join a unit being trained to parachute into occupied Europe. There, she and the other Palestinian-Jewish volunteers would carry out a double mission. For the British, she would help set up escape routes for downed Allied aircrews who had evaded capture; for the Haganah the Palestinian Jewish underground army she would organize Jews and help them to escape. Senesh and four colleagues parachuted into Yugoslavia in March 1944. She crossed into Hungary in early June, but was immediately captured by the Hungarian authorities. She was imprisoned for six months and was brutally interrogated. While in prison, she taught her fellow prisoners Hebrew and inspired them with stories of life in Palestine. Her mother was arrested in an attempt to extract information from her, but Senesh refused to give her captors the information they sought. She was tried for treason, and executed by firing squad on Nov. 7, 1944, at the age of 23. Her remains were moved to Israel in 1950, and she is now buried in the section of Israels national military cemetery dedicated to the parachutists. Her mother and brother survived the war.

Entertainment 5B Seminole Beacon, February 6, 2014 012314 013014 1930s, exploring Seneshs home life, education, and religious beliefs as part of a bourgeois Jewish family. It shows how her priorities changed in 1938 and 1939 upon facing anti-Semitism, and how she became a Zionist. The exhibition follows Senesh to the Agricultural School of Young Women in Nahalal and portrays her physical and spiritual life there and at Kibbutz Sedot Yam through the use of her own words, including the text of her famous 1942 poem Halikha LKesariya (A Walk to Caesarea), known worldwide as Eli, Eli. This short Hebrew poem was set to music in 1945, and has since become a virtual second anthem in Israel. Seneshs mission, imprisonment, trial and execution are narrated through the words of her acquaintances, family, and friends who were witness to these tragic events. The exhibition concludes with a section describing Hannahs legacy. Items featured in the exhibition include: An edition of Kis Szenesek Lapja (Newspaper of the Little Seneshes), produced in 1929 by Senesh and her brother Giora). Readers paid for the paper with chocolates. Seneshs Hungarian passport with its visa to Palestine. The portable typewriter Senesh brought with her to Palestine along with letters she typed to her mother that sometimes included drawings and handwritten messages. The suitcase in which Senesh stored her notebooks and other possessions when she departed on the mission. She left a letter stating that she is leaving the suitcase at the kibbutz containing Daddys books and other personal items, which I would not like anyone except Gyurka (her brother) or Mother to touch. The last photo of Senesh and her brother Giora taken in Tel Aviv the day Hannah departed on her mission. He had arrived in Palestine the previous day. The back of the photo was inscribed by her brother. How good and pleasant it is for siblings to be together, and sent to her in Egypt. Senesh returned it to him, adding, How good!

DUNEDIN The Dunedin Fine Art Center is referring to its upcoming fringe art festival as the IT Weekend, a super-fecta of events, which will include Contain It!, Trashy Treasures, Eat It! and Brew It! The grouping of events runs for just one evening and one day: Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21-22, at Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd. The fun will kick off Friday, Feb. 21, 6 p.m., with another legendary DFAC party, according to a press release. The event will feature craft brews, live music by Nancy RayGuns and, of course, all of that incredible food. Contain It!, a multi-media installation fair, showcases the work of artists who have reworked the interior of PODS to reflect their unique take on the space. The idea is to have someone step inside each POD and feel transported into the artists imagination, said George Ann Bissett, DFACs executive director. This years presentation is being curated by Christine Renc-Carter. Featured container artists will include Nicole Abbett, Paula Pollyzoom Allen, Nathan Beard, Theo Georgiou, Moses Hensley, Shane Hoffman along with three students, Barbara Hubbard along with two students, Wes Roos, Kumpa Tawornprom and Eric Voorhis. There also will be a special installation by last years peoples choice winner, Vicky Block. Trashy Treasures is considered the Tampa Bay areas most loved art garage sale. People donate art works that theyve perhaps grown tired of, and art supplies they no longer need to DFAC. The center then offers a select group for sale by silent auction for the event Friday evening, and then prices the rest of it to sell on a firstcome first-served garage sale basis on Saturday, Feb. 22. The addition of Eat It! a few years ago made the event a tasty triple-header, said Ken Hannon, DFACs associate executive director. Food trucks for this years Eat It! will include DFACs own Stephen Decaires temporary Palm Cafe on Wheels, George Tinney BBQ and more. This year, DFAC never being an organization to rest on their laurels for too long is adding a craft beer component to the festivities. Theyre calling Brew It!
