Seminole fire truck pull gears up By BRIAN GOFFSEMINOLE For the past seven years, one of the highlights of the annual Seminole Pow Wow Festival has been the fire truck pull. Teams of people, young and old alike, grab onto a rope and pull a fire truck for 100 feet in a competition to see who can do it the fastest. This years competition takes place March 1 in the parking lot of the Seminole Library during the Pow Wow. Its never too early to begin to line up teams and sponsors for the event, and that is what organizer Wayne Madasey has been hard at work doing. Madasey has been involved with the event, which is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Seminole, for the past three years and has seen it grow considerably. Around the time I took over, there were five teams and six or eight sponsors, he said. Since then weve averaged about 20 sponsors and 11 teams. This year, hopefully well get more, especially from the high school; wed like to get 12 or 14 teams. The teams that participate in the event arent just restricted to the schools. In fact, Madasey says there are a wide variety of categories. Of course we have the high school and middle school teams, he said. We also have adult men teams, adult females, adult mixed teams, men and women, and there is the teen mixed division. There are also teams from businesses and that is where the Features Business . . . . . . . . . .14A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . .9-10, 18A County . . . . . . . . . . .6-7A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-4B Faith & family . . . . . . . .11A Health & tness . . . . . .12, 19A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Military . . . . . . . . . . .16A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .8A Pet Connection . . . . . . . .15A Real Estate . . . . . . . . .13A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .17A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising CorrectionA story on the Feb. 3 debate between candidates for the District 13 House of Representatives seat held in the Digitorium at St. Pete Colleges Seminole campus contained errors about two candidates positions on three issues.

Cop plays the bad guyRetired undercover detective teams up with local filmmakers to make horror movies By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE After retiring from his job as an undercover narcotics detective for the Sheriffs Office three years ago, Randall Speakman was uncertain what his next step would be. Then, his mother succumbed to cancer. Not long after that, his brother died from a heart attack. I would wake up and feel like I had no purpose, Speakman said. But things slowly got better. He bought the London Bus Pub with his friend and business partner, Brad Doran. He also began making horror movies, including last summers House Guest, with a pair of local filmmaker brothers, Brian and Jake Jalbert, and found he had a knack for playing the bad guy. It saved me, Speakman said. Between the Bus and meeting Brian and doing movies. I think its the main reason Im still here. Speakman and Doran met while hanging out at the Angry Pepper. Speakman was considering a move to Bradenton at the time, but the two would talk about what it would be like if they opened up their own bar. When the longtime owners of the London Bus Pub put the business up for sale, Doran and Speakman jumped at the chance to buy it. That business has been there over 41 years, Doran said. Its roots go that far back in the community. The community was their primary motivation for buying the restaurant they wanted to give back, Speakman said.

The movie featured London Bus Pub owner Randall Speakman, and was produced by Brian and Jake Jalbert. Vincent is pictured with his co-star Maylin Morera, who played Jen Murphy.SEMINOLE Registration has begun for the fifth annual Forever Friends Golf Tournament Saturday, April 5 at Seminole Lake Country Club. The tournament is held yearly in honor of Nate Richardson, Keith MacCollom, Joey Ruzecki and LeShawn Smith who died on April 10, 2009 in a car accident in Seminole. Richardson, MacCollom and Ruzecki were students at Seminole High School. Smith was a student at Largo High School. All of them were standout students. Smith and MacCollom were members of their high school basketball teams and Richardson was on Seminole Highs baseball team. All money and proceeds raised from the tournament will go toward scholarships in the boys names at Seminole High School and youth opportunities around the city of Seminole and Largo. Within the past four years, the tournament has raised over $125,000 in college scholarships as well as $45,000 in grants for kids. There are many ways that residents and businesses can donate and participate in the tournament. The entry fee to play is $160 per person. The fee includes a lunch and dinner provided by Seminole Lake Country Club, 18 holes of golf, one mulligan, putting green and straightest drive contests, four closest to the pin contests and 12 raffle tickets. Forever Friends is also looking for a title sponsor, which is $4,000. With this sponsorship, the sponsor gets entry of two foursomes, along with four extra dinners, business name on tournament brochures distributed around the community and a banner recognizing them and their business. A gold sponsorship is $1,250 and includes entry for four players, a gold sponsorship sign along with hole sign on the course and four additional dinners. A silver sponsorship is $1,000 and includes tournament entry for four, a silver sponsorship sign and a hole sign. A bronze sponsorship is $750 and includes entry for four players and a bronze sponsorship hole sign. There also is the opportunity for a business to be a putting green sponsor or a driving range sponsor. Both are $250. Any resident or business can be a get a hole sign for $100. There will be a silent auction as well as a live auction during dinner. The families are looking for item donations for both. If anyone is interested in joining for dinner, each dinner is $25. The deadline to register to play in the tournament is March 31.

The pair also wanted to create a friendly atmosphere, a second home. Its a Cheers atmosphere, Speakman said. Hey, how you doing? Everybody knows each others name. Then a chance encounter with Brian at a local Subway fast food restaurant led him in a different direction. Speakman overheard Brian talking with friends about shooting a movie. Intrigued, Speakman stopped to chat. The Jalbert brothers, Boca Ciega High School graduates, filmed weddings through their company Iyrus Entertainment by day, and made action and horror movies in their free time. Speakman had always been interested in acting. After all, he had spent 27 years with the Sheriffs Office, where acting was an integral part of his job as an undercover detective. He expressed an interest in working on one of Brians films and the two exchanged contact information. Their first project together was a short film, Love Struck. This is when they realized Speakman had a knack for playing the bad guy. He took on the role of a seedy pawn shop owner who was running drugs on the side. He was a bad dude, said Speakman, who added that roles like that come naturally to him because of his background. As an undercover cop, all I did was work with bad guys. They entered the film into the 2012 Action Film Challenge.

A business pays $150 as a sponsor and gets to enter a team. The money raised goes to the various programs supported by the Kiwanis Club. In March we have a program called (Every) Child a Swimmer at the Seminole Rec Center, said Madasey. We take 120 kids who are 10 years or older and bring them into the pool. Most of them cant swim, but after 10 or 12 days they can either swim or handle themselves in the water. We have a 95 percent passing rate in that program. In addition to that, the Kiwanis Club puts a lot of money into the Horses for Handicapped program. We support that program to the tune of $1518,000 for the upkeep of the horses, he said. We also give $6,000 to graduating seniors in scholarships. All our proceeds go toward helping those programs. Madasey said the fire truck pull isnt the only fundraiser the club is involved in during the year. He said the Christmas tree sale every year is important, too. We sold 249 trees in 12 days this year and made over $4,000 from that, he said. For now, however all the attention is going toward the fire truck pull to make sure that it is successful. Wendy Strickland has participated in the event for the past three years. She works at Allen Sports and has entered a team from that company each year. It is very fun. I get a group of my girlfriends and we bring our kids and they get to pull the truck too on their own team, she said. It is fun and a good community event for Seminole. Strickland said she can remember the first time she pulled a fire truck and what it was like. It feels very heavy, she said. It feels heavy, but once it starts it comes along pretty well. But it isnt easy; it is definitely heavy to pull. Madasey says he looks forward to the event every year because it involved so many people who are attending the Pow Wow. We not only have plenty of teams, but lots of spectators as well, he said. It is announced at the carnival and you can see the people come over to watch it.

It really is a fun day. FIRE TRUCK PULL, from page 1A Photo courtesy of GENE STERNChuck Oldanie, a local Realtor and member of the Seminole Lake Rotary Club, spoke at the clubs Feb. 7 meeting. He presented his vision of how three prominent charitable organizations with similar intentions Rotary International, Seeds of Peace and Habitat for Humanity may some day work collaboratively to promote the idea of peace through understanding. Oldanie has been working on this potential collaborative effort since 2000, and recently saw the results of his efforts when he organized a Habitat build in Mumbai, India, which was coordinated through local Rotary Clubs and Seeds of Peace.Collaborating for peace Frank Joshua Vento, 48, of Seminole, passed away on Feb. 3.

Saying goodbye HOUSE GUEST, from page 1ASpeakman was named Best Villain and Brian won the award for Best Actor. Next came the thriller House Guest, which premiered at Muvico in Ybor City last July. In House Guest, a group of friends gather at one of their homes only to realize a murderer terrorizing their city is one of the guests. Speakman joined the brothers as co-executive producer and funded the $3,000 needed for the budget. They also brought in Alex Vincent, the child star of the Childs Play movies. Not only did Vincent star in the film, but he wrote the script as well. Brian met Vincent, who lives in New Port Richey, after publishing an ad on Craigslist seeking local scriptwriters. Hes such a down-to-earth guy, Brian said. He wrote it, and I thought it would be cool to get him to star in it as well. The movie can be rented on Vimeo On Demand at vimeo.com/ondemand/houseguest/74246288 and DVDs can be purchased online. Now theyre hard at work on their next projects, In Your Image and Seconds to Run. Seconds to Run is about a group of white trash rednecks that toy with their victims by giving them a 10-second head-start before hunting them down. In Your Image, based on a dream Speakman had, is about two twin brothers adopted out to two different families one very loving and supportive, the other abusive. Each brother takes a very different path in life, and, not knowing the other exists, encounter each other later in life. I dream in vivid detail, Speakman said. Its crazy, Brian said. He made a dream come true. They passed Speakmans notes from the dream on to local scriptwriter Jim Duncan who formatted it and fixed it up. Now theyre trying to grab the attention of aGrandmas take on grandpas in softball gameST.

He said the reserve capacity built into the system is needed to ensure response. In addition, he said, the plan shifts the costs of the system to the fire side. Graham expressed his dismay that county staff had not scheduled a private meeting with him to talk about the details. He wants to know exactly how the changes will affect Lealman. It is dj vu, said Commissioner Janet Long, referring to past discussions on EMS when the staff presentation differed from the view of the fire departments. Robert Polk, president of the Pinellas County Fire Chiefs Association, said, Its a never-ending dilemma, adding that his words were not intended to fuel a debate. One of his concerns is the plan to freeze costs after the end of three years of cost reductions. His bigger issue is taking units off the street. Something has to suffer, he said. He advocates more meetings and more discussion. He is concerned about the ability to respond to fires that involve injuries in the middle By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys Emergency Medical Services is among the best in the nation. But that quality comes at a price that is getting harder and harder to afford. For years, staff has been looking for ways to cut costs without damaging response times and service. Prior studies and plans were rejected. Relationships between the county and the municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services have become strained. Still, something has to be done before the EMS millage rate reaches the cap and the reserve fund is depleted. Staffs most recent proposal comes from recommendations by consultant Fitch and Associates. Implementation of the recommended CARES model calls for reduced staffing of fire stations during nighttime hours when activity is at its lowest. CARES stands for Community-wide Alignment of Resources for Efficiency and Service. Fitch says using a CARES-2 could save Pinellas millions of dollars over time. Under the proposed new funding model, no change is recommended for Dunedin, East Lake, Gulfport, Madeira Beach, Oldsmar, Pinellas Suncoast, Safety Harbor, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island. Increased funding is proposed for Palm Harbor, Seminole and Tarpon Springs. Decreased funding is planned for Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg. The reductions would be phased in over three years. Staff estimates a savings of $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-2015. St. Petersburg takes the biggest hit with a reduction of more than $1 million over three years. Clearwaters funding would go down $669,690; Largo, $527,566; Pinellas Park, $504,789; and Lealman, $285,454. Tarpon Springs funding would increase by $381,531. Palm Harbor would receive $240,740 more. Seminole would get an increase of $143,945 in part to pay for service to Redington Beach and Redington Shores. Currently, the county pays for two positions per rescue truck 24 hours a day for 48 hours of funding. Under CARES, two positions per rescue truck would be funded for 14 hours a day plus one position on an engine for 10 hours for 38 hours of funding. The number of funded positions would go from 84 to 79.28. Bruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, said that staffing changes would not affect the countys average response time of 7 minutes, 30 seconds 90 percent of the time. Speaking at a Feb. 4 work session, Moeller said response time improvements are predicted for service to Tarpon Springs, Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Madeira Beach, St. Pete Beach and areas serviced by Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District. Response time decreases of a few seconds are possible in Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Oldsmar, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor and St. Petersburg. County Administrator Bob LaSala is optimistic about the plan, estimating savings of $18 million to $20 million in the first three years, if you add in cost avoidance. In 10 years, savings could mount up to $58 million to $60 million, he said. LaSala said he reviewed the plan with mayors and city managers from 14 cities and four fire districts. Leaders from Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Oldsmar, Clearwater, Seminole, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island reportedly said they were prepared to recommend the changes. Weve been talking about this for a long, long time, said Commissioner Ken Welch. I hope we can bring it in for a landing. Moeller reported that CARES 2 does reduce overall response times by about 5 seconds, but said the increase should not affect the average of 7 minutes 90 percent of the time. Most calls currently are answered in about 4 minutes. LaSala said staff would work with the 18 providers of first responder services to create more efficiency. Well look to see if we can address the 5 seconds by how we assign calls throughout the system, he said.ObjectionsLealman Fire Chief Richard Graham believes the new plan will decrease the level of service. I understand it will save money, but what is a life worth? he asked. He disagrees with the Fitch studys assessment that the EMS sys-Plan may balance Pinellas EMS fundingCounty staff continues negotiations with 18 first responder service providers Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERBruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, explains the latest plan to contain costs of the countys Emergency Medical Services during a Feb. 4 work session.

Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they're even given a chance of showing. Your asking price is often your home's "first impression", and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it's imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a home seller as pricing too low. Taking a look at what homes in your neighborhood have sold for is only a small part of the process, and on its own is not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recent study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled "Homesellers: How to Get the Price You Want (and Need)". This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles.

We have to accept that. Despite, his concerns, Polk said he believed the latest plan is closer than ever to something all sides can support. He added that the countys fire chiefs had not yet met to discuss the recently released proposal. Who is getting money and who is not, thats a cloudy issue, he said. He agreed with Graham that individual meetings between fire departments and county staff were necessary for everyone to understand the effect of the proposed changes. LaSala said he planned to work with the decision makers for each of the 18 service providers not necessarily the fire chiefs. LaSala then left the room. This is not the first time weve been subject to this type of behavior, Polk said. He pointed out that a city manager was not a decision maker. Polk, who also is chief of Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District, said he was offended to be diminished and belittled at commission meetings. He talked about recent incidents that had taxed Pinellas Countys resources to the maximum. He said storms tax the system to absolute maximum. And you never know when theyre coming, he said. Hurricanes dont sneak up on us, but they tax our resources. He said due to the countys vulnerability when access to the mainland was lost when bridges were closed, it was important to be more self-sufficient than landlocked counties. LaSala returned to the meeting and apologized to Polk, saying he had not meant to demean you or others. Palm Harbor Fire Commissioner Norm Atherton said he believed the county had negotiated in good faith a deal that he would recommend to his board. However, he also had some concerns about certain aspects and the lack of communication. Communication is never perfect, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. But I pledge that each fire department will receive a presentation. Seel added that as of Feb. 2, she had served on the commission for 15 years. EMS and fire have been contentious issues, she said. Its been a journey these last 14 years for some of us here, Morroni said. Its upsetting that there is still a communication issue going on here. Commissioner Charlie Justice said it was difficult to make a decision when one side says EMS is subsidizing fire service and the other side says EMS is not paying for itself. The important thing is that were close, Commissioner Norm Roche said.

Prior to last weeks big blow, we had some spectacular days on speckled trout. Were still targeting areas of sandy shell bottom mixed with sparse grass. Bouncing red and gold jigs up off the bottom has been working very well, as we move along the color change edge were able to show our jigs to a lot more fish than if we were using live shrimp. However, the shrimp will work very well once the fish are located, especially if you feel like there might be some big fish in the area. Look for the bite to turn back on in a big way this week. Our water temperature should get back up into the 60s by the weekend with the good tides brought on by the full moon, and rest assured that somewhere out there the trout will be biting. Places to check will be Fort De Soto. The park offers many spots for anglers to get out of the wind for one, but its close proximity to deeper gulf and bay waters allows for good clean water with tremendous grass growth potential. Target deep bomb holes, channel edges and general pothole bottom. Boca Ciega Bay is also good but often overlooked area for some big sea trout. Target island edges just inside Johns Pass when the water is clean. On a side note its not uncommon to find schools of pompano hanging in the deeper troughs around the islands. The entire east side of the bay from Gulfport to Park Boulevard can be good for both trout and reds. Find clean water and you should be in the right spot. St. Josephs Sound offers excellent trout fishing this time of year. Spoil islands both north and south of Dunedin Causeway can get loaded up with big trout at times. Target the deeper sides of the island. Thats usually where the better tidal flow is and that sand shell bottom is definitely what to look for.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Maxx)(727) 202-4344 021314 Knowing your childs love languageThis week is all about love. When I think of love, I think of my family. Like most of you, I love my family more than anything. The love parents have for their children is usually unconditional love. I know no matter what my kids do, I am going to love them. I may not agree or be happy with something they do, but I will always love them. Recently I started reading Gary Chapmans book, The 5 Love Languages of Children. The book is about how we as parents can best communicate love with our children once we know their primary love language. My girls know how much I love them, but according to Chapmans book some kids may not realize you love them if you are not filling what he calls in his book their love tank. He mentions five kinds of love in his book. They are physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts and acts of service. To find out your childs love language there is a list of questions the child answers. This multiple-choice quiz can be found in the book or for free online at Chapmans website www.5lovelanguages.com. You also can try seeing how your child responds when you give the different kinds of love languages. You can try a specific love language for a week and see what happens. Chapman says when you are giving your child their primary love language you see a difference in how your child behaves. I was interested in seeing what my two girls love languages were. I also wanted to answer the quiz to find out what my love language and my husbands love language was. I will tell you my husband thought the questions were a little goofy. I still made him take the quiz. I wanted to make this a family event. It was interesting to see that my girls love languages were different. One daughters primary love language is quality of time. This means when I spend time with her she feels loved. My other daughters love language is acts of service. So when I do things for her like help her with her homework or help her pick out her clothes, she feels loved. Chapman says that we need to give our kids their primary love language, but they will benefit from having all the love languages. I also thought it was interesting how he says knowing your childs love language helps with discipline and that discipline shouldnt be something negative. It should be out of love that we discipline. I did notice that after making a conscious effort at trying to give each daughter love in their love language that it did make a difference. I know they both know I love them, but they are happier when I am filling their love tank with the love language they speak. I think knowing their love language just enhances my relationship with each one of my girls. So when you think about the ones you love this week, think about filling their love tanks. Valentines Day may not be about giving candy, flowers or cards, but just might be physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time or acts of service.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

PETERSBURG Suncoast Safety Council created the Ride Safe Motorcycle Training program in 2008 to comply with the motorcycle endorsement law enacted the same year. The law requires all riders in the state of Florida to successfully complete the MSF Basic RiderCourse to obtain a motorcycle endorsement on their Florida License. The course was developed to train and educate both novice and experienced motorcyclists and scooter riders in the physical and mental skills necessary for safe vehicle operation, and to reduce the number of motorcycle and scooter related crashes and injuries on Floridas roads and highways. As of Feb. 1, Ride Safe Motorcycle Trainings range is located at Tyrone Square Mall. Two day classes are available on weekends and weekdays. To register, visit www.RideSafeNow.org, call 373-7233 or visit a Suncoast Safety Council office in Clearwater or St. Petersburg. The classroom portion of the motorcycle training will be held in Clearwater and the range will be located at Tyrone Square Mall (next to Tires Plus). Suncoast Safety Council offices are located as follows: Motorcycle Classroom Address 1145 Court St.. Clearwater Motorcycle Range Address 2800 Tyrone Blvd. North, St. Petersburg Ride Safe Motorcycle Training provides a safe, fun and professional learning environment where residents can get the motorcycle training needed to obtain a Florida motorcycle license or enhance riding skills. This 15-hour course (five hours of classroom training plus 10 hours of riding/practical training) satisfies all Florida motorcycle and scooter license requirements. The professional team of Motorcycle Safety Foundation Rider-Coaches help riders gain the skills needed to ride with confidence. Ride Safe Motorcycle Training provides bikes (motorcycles and scooters) and DOT-approved helmets for training. All students must have a valid drivers license or learners permit to enroll. For the riding portion of the class, students need long-sleeve shirt or jacket, denim jeans or heavy pants, over-the-ankle boots, full-fingered gloves and shatter resistant sunglasses or safety glasses.

They help to locate our ancestors on the ground where they lived and worked, and thus go a long way in helping us more fully appreciate the lives they led. There is one type of map that is very helpful in this pursuit because it gives us such amazing detail, but which may not be in our awareness as much as the familiar road map or plat map is. That is the Sanborn insurance map collection.Those maps were originally created to aid in estimating fire insurance liabilities, and as such, insurance underwriters used the maps to determine risks and establish premiums. You can see from this use the reason for the detail that was provided. As a side benefit, they provide an insight to American urbanization that is typically not found in other types of maps. Therein lies their value to genealogists.The Sanborn Company, founded by a surveyor from Somerville, Mass., named Daniel Sanborn, began making these maps in 1867. In time his firm became the largest and most successful American map company. The company headquarters was in Pelham, N.Y., but had regional offices in other large cities across the county. It had a host of surveyors it used to record the location, shape, and other relevant details about buildings in all major urbanized areas throughout the country. In addition, it was surprising how many small communities also were the subject of Sanborn maps. The firm issued maps primarily between the late 1870s and the early 1960s for about 12,000 American cities and towns. Some areas had multiple editions produced, and even communities with as few as a couple of hundred people had maps made for them. The Sanborn maps themselves were produced on 21-inch by 25inch sheets of paper and bound in volumes. They were relatively large scale showing 50 feet on the ground to 1 inch on the map. Updates were pasted into the volumes until completely new editions were created. The maps included text or abbreviations to describe the purpose of the buildings, identifying them as dwellings, factories, businesses, etc. Each map typically covered a four to six block area, and included an index of streets and addresses, and special indexes for churches, schools, businesses, and such as needed. Because of their intended use, many details were provided to include outlines of each building and outbuilding, window and door locations, sidewalk widths, property boundaries, fire walls, natural features, railroad corridors, building use (sometimes even particular room use), composition of building materials, existence of sprinkler systems, locations of fire hydrants, location of water and gas mains, and more Their use to genealogists can be significant. We can make use of all that detail to learn about the structures our ancestors lived and worked in. Because of their detail, we can use them to determine which new house numbers correspond to particular old dwellings. We also can create a list of organizations and businesses in the area that may have been used by an ancestor. Such organizations may include churches, schools, laundries, groceries, etc. By researching those organizations, we may uncover new evidence and clues regarding a familys past. If used in combination with a city directory, we can develop an informative sense of the neighborhood in which our ancestor lived. Today Sanborn maps are found primarily in the archives and special collections of town halls and public and university libraries, some of which are on line. Cyndis List is a good place to look for sites (http://cyndislist.com), and the Library of Congress map collection lists thousands of maps where over 6,000 are online (http://www.loc.gov/rr/geogmap/sanborn). Another good reference is Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Sanborn_Maps), which lists Sanborn map collections by city and state, identifying many, which are digitized and online. If you are at a stage in your genealogy research where you want maps to help visualize aspects of your ancestors lives, dont overlook the value of Sanborn maps. They are a captivating reference to explore, and once you start to use them, you may find yourself drawn into the story they tell, whether they directly relate to one of your ancestors or not.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972. He is past president of the Pinellas Genealogy Society.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHealthy AgingA happy emotional outlook and sharp mental state are critical building blocks for overall good health in seniors. Physical health pales when a person suffers emotional distress and isolation, making them unable to enjoy life. In fact, emotional health and a sharp mind are critical for seniors when physical limitations prevail. Physical health can be maintained by exercising within your individual abilities, with your doctors consent. Exercise helps preserve muscle tone and bone density and can aid in balance and coordination. Daily exercise can be as simple as walking around the block or participating in a group exercise class at the local gym. Consuming a wellbalanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, and protein provides nutrients your body needs to function properly inside and out. Mental health is facilitated by challenging yourself every day. Challenges can include participating in new activities, playing games you never have before or merely extending your knowledge in one subject. Creativity is key in keeping your brain sharp and your senses focused. Emotional health becomes endangered as seniors face the loss of a spouse and other loved ones. Isolation can become prevalent due to physical limitations or the lack of desire to socialize. Anxiety and depression can affect seniors who worry about money matters, have minimal contact with others, or for those who suffer serious medical conditions. Emotional health depends largely on happiness, which is influenced by increased socialization and less isolation. Encourage seniors to join clubs, volunteer, or dine together. Daily activities give a sense of purpose, a feeling of value and create happier states of mindwhich is key in potentially avoiding the effects of stress, anxiety and depression. The primary goal of seniors is to maintain independent lives in their own homes. It is essential for seniors to understand that in order to achieve this goal they must learn how to adapt to some of these changes by pursuing healthy lifestyles that can, in turn, make independence possible well into their golden years. Comfort Keepers is a leader in in-home senior care to promote independent living. Services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, incidental transportation, laundry, recreational activities, personal care and technology products. 021314 021314 Chefs Specials for Lunch & DinnerSurf & Turf Twin Tails ... and More!

Tri-paw sweetheartCongratulations to Mila, a three-legged pit bull mix, who is Februarys Pet of the Month photo contest winner. Her human mom, Inga Martinez, adopted her from Pinellas County Animal Services, where she volunteers. Mila is now 2 years old and was adopted a year ago on Halloween. Even though she only has three legs, she still runs just as fast or faster than her four-legged buddies. Mila is a very athletic and fun dog. She was picked up as a stray with several old breaks in her front leg that had grown back wrong, so the leg had to be amputated, Martinez said. After the amputation, she spent 10 days in a wonderful foster home, and a few days later, Martinez adopted her. Mila loves her new home, where she also has an 11-year-old shepherd mix doggy brother, Roxy. They have a blast playing together, riding in the car and going for walks. Martinez said that after spending time with Mila, she has a pretty good idea how she got the breaks in her leg. The way Mila reacts to sticks, empty paper towel rolls, brooms, or anything that looks like a bat makes Martinez suspect that she was beaten. I make sure she never sees any objects that look anything like what could be used as a bat. I will make sure she never has to be afraid again, Martinez said. As Pet of the Month winner, Mila has won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

A healthy immune system is very important; many infections and diseases can be prevented, or made better, by a healthy and active immune system. More is not always better though, for other diseases occur when the immune system is too strong. The white blood cells and antibodies are the armies of the immune system, attacking invading bacteria, viruses and other organisms. The antibodies, and some white blood cells, recognize and attach to foreign invaders, directing the white blood cells to attack and destroy the bad germs. The antibodies are very specific; they need to target the causes of infection while avoiding the actual hosts own body. If the immune system is not strong enough, foreign organisms can come and cause disease. Bacteria can cause kennel cough, viruses can cause parvovirus, feline leukemia virus, or rabies, yeast can cause ear infections and fungus can lead to pneumonia, just to name a very few possible problems. Our pets bodies, and our own, are constantly being assaulted by foreign invaders determined to cause illness. But like many things in nature, there must be moderation with the strength and power of the immune system; an overactive immune system causes problems as well. If the antibodies and white blood cells react to normal substances, such as pollens or proteins in food, it can lead to severe skin allergies or asthma in the lungs. An overreaction to an insect sting can cause hives, facial swelling, or even anaphylaxis, where the throat swells shut. Even worse is when the immune system becomes confused and begins to attack the dogs or cats own body parts. If the immune system attacks the cartilage, it can lead to a rheumatoid arthritis. If it attacks the red blood cells, which carry oxygen, it can cause a spontaneous lifethreatening anemia (known as an auto-immune hemolytic anemia.) Sometimes the immune system attacks platelets, which allow the blood to clot, and cause spontaneous bleeding. The immune system can also attack the skin, causing horrible flesh-eating rashes called pemphigus. The controversy comes with regards to vaccines. Vaccines stimulate the immune system by helping it to practice fighting certain germs. The vaccine against parvo-virus allows the immune system to become and stay good at fighting this common disease, which leads to potentially fatal bloody vomiting and diarrhea. It is a very serious disease and absolutely needs to be prevented. At the same time, however, we need to be careful not to over-stimulate the immune system and cause other problems. The pendulum has swung back and forth on how often and how many vaccines to give our pets. Most universities now recommend against the vaccinate to everything every year protocol that was common a decade ago. At the same time, avoiding vaccines altogether has led to an increase in preventable diseases in people, and these pet infections still occur with frightening regularity. The answer lies somewhere in the middle and is a topic for discussion with your pets vet. Moderation is never easy; the middle ground is always filled with complicated grays instead of the easy black and whites. Keeping our pets healthy is important, and to do so we need to cross into that moderation space.Michael Rumore practices at Lake Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, and at online at www .LakeSeminoleAH.com.

Murphy Memorial VA Hospital were filled with elite high school football players as members of the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl teams visited patients and staff Jan. 1, 2014. Considered community outreach by the staff, it became much more to the players. Mason Cole, East Team offensive lineman and senior at East Lake High School in Tarpon Springs, Fla., never had this sort of experience before. Coming here was an awesome thing, Cole said. Me, myself and Im pretty sure everyone else have never been here or seen anything like this before. Seeing veterans ... it really goes to show how much they mean to us, how much they matter, how thankful we are for them. Players visited patients in both the Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center and the Community Living Center, meeting veterans that spanned many age ranges. In Johnnys room, his mother marveled that the players were so big and laughed as they tried to play catch with her son. When thanked, East Team defensive lineman Jesse Aniebonam, from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md., simply stated, We are blessed to be in your presence. Players handed out small foam footballs emblazoned with the U.S. Army All-American Bowl logo and personally signed by the players, with each including a personal message ranging anywhere from thanks for all you do to God bless. One player, East Team defensive lineman Elisha Shaw of Tucker High School, Tucker, Ga., went above and beyond, creating miniature works of art by drawing pictures or intricate patterns on each of the footballs he delivered. This one is for you, I created it especially for you, he would say as he handed each one to a smiling patient. Although the patients appeared to be impressed by the players, commenting on their skills, their height, their obvious physical prowess, Zach Schmid, punter for West Team and player from Francis Parker High School in San Diego summed up what several of his teammates were feeling. We are able to do what we do because of people like you, Schmid said. Cole echoed the sentiment as he explained what it meant to be chosen as a U.S. Army All-American. It means a lot to me. Its the reason that I chose to come to this one (instead of other bowl options), I want to play in the bowl supported by the men and women that protect this country, Cole said. The 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl took place at the Alamodome Jan. 4. Story provided by 319th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment/DVIDS Photo by U.S. ARMY RESERVE SGT. 1ST CLASS LISA M. LITCHFIELDMembers of the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl East and West Teams participate in community outreach at the Audie L. Murphy Memorial VA Hospital in San Antonio, Texas on Jan. 1. Players spent the afternoon visiting with veterans and wounded warriors, handing out autographed footballs and expressing appreciation for the freedoms they enjoy. All-American players are selected from high schools across the country and are considered to be among the best athletes in the nation, with many alumni going on to distinguish themselves both collegiately and in the NFL.

It causes permanent brain damage. Smokers have difficulty concentrating. They suffer loss of memory, and all intellectual performance is impaired, especially in speech and math. Also their personality and emotions are abnormally affected, causing dullness, lethargy, loss of sense of time, hostile suspiciousness, and a false sense of euphoria. THC, a toxic chemical in this drug rests mainly in the fat cells of the body, particularly the brain. Marijuana damages the lungs and respiratory system 10 times faster than nicotine cigarettes. It also damages DNA (genetic cells) and the reproductive system and can cause abnormal births, according to a study at Columbia University. A second Columbia University study found that a control group smoking a single marijuana cigarette every other day for a year had a white blood cell count that was 39 percent lower than normal, thus damaging the immune system and making the user more susceptible to infection and sickness. Five marijuana cigarettes a week have the same cancer causing capacity as 112 conventional cigarettes. One marijuana cigarette causes a 41 percent decrease in driving skills. Two cigarettes cause a 63 percent decrease. Often it is difficult to detect a person who is stoned, as opposed to being drunk with alcohol and having an obvious odor. And all too often marijuana and alcohol are consumed together, studies find. If we legalize marijuana or remove penalties for possession or use, hundreds of thousands of youth will be tempted to try it. It has been known to be a gateway drug to even more dangerous drugs also. For these and many other reasons, marijuana should not be legalized in Florida. Nancy Davis SeminolePreserve a part of historyEditor: I am currently doing the historical reviews of all of Clearwaters history since its beginnings. I volunteer in the historical research section at the main library. I also have all the Belleview Biltmore history from Henry Plants first beginning in Belleair. Many historical sites, homes and buildings built as far back as the mid 1800s have been renovated, turned down but more importantly moved I think saving part of the Belleview Biltmore could be done as a win-win situation as so much of it has deteriorated. The historic Plumb house was moved and is a historical museum. It has vintage furniture, artifacts and a short video of its history. Recently, they moved the Turner House to Heritage Village. My suggestion: Donate and move the most historic part of the Biltmore to Heritage Village, where it can be restored to its original look. Perhaps it can be similar to the fabulous one at the University of Tampas museum. Change the code to residential with more single homes and townhouses to save green space and traffic issues. It is a win for the Belleview Biltmore because part of it will be preserved and visited for years to come. It is a win for our town because other important issues can be addressed and we will start being able to collect much needed tax money. Just a thought of mine while looking at hundreds of historic sites at the library. Many people have used clever solutions to preserve at least a part of history. Perhaps the town of Belleair can preserve the soul of Belleair while moving forward, which is always hard. Roma Allen BelleairShedding light on rights of rentersEditor: In a letter Why unincorporated, Dec. 26, the correspondent states the property I live on probably is not taxed. Well, I only rent here so it is not my fault I do not pay property taxes, Nothing could be further from the truth. When the owners of rental property set the rent they include the property tax in their calculation of how much to charge. Thus, in a very real sense the renter is the only one who really pays the tax on rental property, and the owner of the rental property is no more than a tax collector. Many of our founding fathers subscribed to the mythic idea that people who dont pay taxes shouldnt be given the vote, and since renters dont pay taxes they shouldnt be given the right to vote. The introduction to the article For Wider Suffrage (The Annals of America, Volume 4, page 640) describes the situation better than I ever could. The first state constitutions limited the suffrage to property holders. By the first decade of the 19th century, when those early constitutions came under review, there existed a new class of Americans, who did not own land, but who nevertheless felt a vital interest in government and were ready to press for the right to vote. Men like John Adams, Joseph Story, Daniel Webster, James Madison and James Monroe defended the status quo: They foresaw a society divided along economic lines, rent by conflict between rich and poor, and they feared that extension of suffrage would provide the masses with a political weapon with which to attack the rights of property. Liberals denied that the masses had any desire for class conflicts The attitudes and liberals and conservatives havent changed very much since then. The fears and phobias of our founding fathers led to some strange ideas on who should vote. Consider the letter On the Importance of Property for the Suffrage by John Adams, which is an answer to a letter from James Sullivan. The Annals of America, Volume 2, pages 422-423, includes the statement: Is it not equally true that men in general, in every society, who are wholly destitute of property are too little acquainted with public affairs to form a right judgment and too dependent upon other men to have a will of their own. And, this from the same letter, even more absurdly: why exclude women? You will say because their delicacy renders them unfit for practice and experience in the great businesses of life and the hardy enterprises of war, as well as the arduous cares of state. One can only wonder what the authors of stuff like that would have thought of Golda Meir, Indira Ghandi and Margaret Thatcher. I admit that I do not admire our founding fathers as much as others do, e.g., Justice Scalia. In this matter I stand with Benjamin Franklin who in a speech to the constitutional convention wrote I cannot help expressing a wish that every member doubt a little of his own infallibility. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 163. I also stand with George Washington who wrote, I do not think we are more inspired, have more wisdom or possess more virtue than those who will come after us. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 238. Palmer O. Hanson Jr. Largo Hes finally facing up to FacebookA week ago the Internet company, Facebook, marked its 10-year anniversary. Its a major success story about a college student named Mark Zuckerberg who conceived an idea, put it to work in his dorm room, and now is worth more money than most Central American nations. The idea behind Facebook was to help friends and family stay in touch. Today half the world, plus the population of several small planets, swap messages on Facebook. Most of the messages possess the intrinsic value of a rabbit sneeze, but the same thing might be said of the Internets other social networking entities such as Twitter, You Tube and email. No harm need result, and many users of Facebook gradually discover as they devote 10 or 15 hours a day to scrolling that they now have a purpose in life. I envy them. For the past few years Ive had a Facebook page, but Ive made the mistake of not really learning how the dadblamed system works. When Ive dipped my toes into the mix by sending or replying to messages wafted my way, my efforts have disappeared into the void. I end up not knowing if anyone received what I sent, or (even less likely) that they gave a hoot that I tried to get in touch with them. This includes instances in which I asked the addressee to get in touch with me by phone or by email, so that we could converse, so to speak, like two rational humans instead of furnishing our private thoughts to be read by dozens or hundreds of alleged Facebook friends, who might or might not remember who we are, or could care less. My connectivity batting average has been mighty low, but Ive enjoyed and appreciated those few persons who have responded. By now Ive had to admit that I may not be destined to be a successful social networker. Such a person, from what I can tell, emerges from the womb wearing a smile and attempting to shake hands with his/her mother, father, the doctor and all the nurses in the delivery room. He has a built-in knack for building friendships, and has a need to be in touch with as many persons as possible. As a Facebook fan, he wants to know and be known, and to share his thoughts and experiences no matter how pedestrian. But I could be wrong. Or half-wrong. On the opposite end of the Facebook spectrum could be persons who are shy, introverted, lacking social skills, and desperate to establish friendships, including the phony ones that can thrive even for a short time on Facebook. Have the professional researchers ever made an attempt to find and describe a typical Facebook user? If so, please let me know what was learned. I fall somewhere between the two extremes Ive listed above. I enjoy meeting and knowing people, but not so much that I reach out very much to them. I value conversation, but not with certified looneys. As I scroll through Facebooks entries, I sense that the soup du jour for most of the exchanges is at the level of superficial backyard gossip rather than the stating of deep concerns on matters of universal importance. And thats to be expected. After all, who would want to reveal her/his innermost feelings to a gallery of viewers many of whom, if she met them face to face, wouldnt know her from Adams off ox? Still, Facebook obviously is powerful and useful. As I begin writing this column, the networks are telling of a young woman, an Olympian speed skater, whose family will be with her in Sochi only because Facebook viewers read about the familys need for the funds that would make their trip possible. The word went out, and the donations came in. Facebook indeed has wings. Not too many years ago humans communicated by means of smoke signals, drums and carrier pigeons. Along came the U.S. mail, pony express and telegraph, followed by the telephone, wireless Morse code transmissions and voice radio. Not long thereafter society was graced with television, the computer, fax machines, the Internet and its stepchildren email, Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, and Instagram. Im sure Ive missed a few citations. Each of these inventions helped to shrink the world and bring its inmates closer, along with the question Just how close to people do I need or want to be? Also, Along with all this newfound intimacy, are we any wiser, happier or more loving? Facebook can help us answer these questions, at least for those participants who care enough to ask them.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Retirement: challenges and advantagesIts been more than three years since I retired. I believed at the time that living by calendar schedules, fighting commuter traffic and fending off lifes challenges was behind me. I liked being a Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. I feel privileged to again be granted an occasional 15 inches or so of editorial page space to report on or vent on topics dear to my heart. Modern senior citizens are unlike those of decades ago who often spent their remaining years in back yards or front porches waiting to die. Todays older Americans are more active, more involved, and certainly more cerebral than those of preceding generations. Often times we travel, perform volunteer work or merely track the adventures of Jerry Springer or Steve Wilkos and wonder where they find those people that appear on their shows. Thanks to modern electronics we keep up on current events through newspapers, television, and smart phones that do practically everything but brew the morning coffee. My step granddaughter knows all about contemporary electronics. She is the go-to person in the family when our gadgets refuse to work. But I have grown to absolutely abhor automated telephone systems that banks, credit card and insurance companies employ. Patience is not one of my virtues. Dealing with electronic voice commands that demand pushing buttons to answer questions instead of talking to real people is challenging and frustrating. Just recently I threatened an electronic voice with something that would be impossible to accomplish without being a contortionist. The metallic response: Thank you, I will transfer you to a representative. I sometimes wonder how my mother who was in her late 80s and legally blind overcame the obstacles of modern survival.Then there are the doctor visits where nurses and office workers often affectionately address seniors as honey and sweetheart. Many of us resent that. Last month my wife had to undergo a colonoscopy. The doctor actually presented us with before and after color pictures of the procedure. I wondered aloud if I should have them enlarged to frame and hang over the living room sofa. And why would a doctor specialize in that sort of thing, anyway?Being a senior citizen does have its privileges. We get modest discounts at restaurants and stores. My days of flashing press credentials are over. I now offer an AARP card. People seem to be more courteous to older folks. Last year we visited New York City and I was astonished over how many young people offered me a subway seat. I declined each time, proving instead that I was wholly capable of hanging on to a stanchion pole without being catapulted through the entire length of the train as it roared into the 42nd Street station. As age advances we find that accomplishing once-routine chores has become slightly difficult. Young women in skimpy clothing are less interesting. Mowing a lawn is challenging on hot summer days. We suffer from aches and pains. We forget easily and actually obey traffic laws. I am fortunate to have a wonderful wife and an extended family. I still go to the gym three times a week. We travel. Im reasonably healthy and still set goals for the future. There arent too many things I would change if I could rewind my life. Perhaps I would practice patience, listen more to what people have to say, accept human idiosyncrasies, and put my mind in gear before starting my mouth.As for the good old days ... theyre just beginning.

In fact in Dunedin they come from a spot along the causeway. Take a drive and you will see budding Olympic sailors working out every weekend. They have been doing it for several years and who knows one or more of them might be participating in the next Summer Olympics in 2016. The athletes training on the causeway are being coached by Robbie Daniel, 51, himself an Olympic class sailor who came within a hair of participating in two different Olympics in the late 1990s and during the last decade. He said it was a lot of work for him and a lot of work for the students who are learning from him now. It winds up being nearly a full time job, he said. There is all manner of training to do, not just with the boats, but also physical training. Those boats are pretty physical so you have to be fit. It is part of the training. It is at an elite level. It doesnt matter what sport it is; there is so much detail and it makes you a better athlete. Daniels Olympic sailing career really began when he was 12 years old and began racing competitively. He progressed through the system and ultimately took part in four Olympic campaigns. A Campaign is a four-year regimen that takes place between Olympics and it ends with trials and races to determine who the U.S. Olympic Sailing Committee chooses to represent the country at the Olympics. Daniel came close on two occasions. Twice I finished second in the last race, he said. Going into it I was tied, I still had a chance in the last race to win the selection. Daniel said the pain of not winning after four years of such hard work, wasnt as bad as he imagined. I was obviously disappointed, but you are kind of prepared for that all along, he said. Obviously, you are disappointed and heart broken, but it was not as devastating as I thought it would be. Right after the race you have to begin to pack up and get ready to go home and get on with life so that helped me not to dwell on it so much. It was around that time that Daniel began coaching and hes been at it ever since. His wife, Jill Nickerson, 54, is also his partner in the business, Red Deer Racing. She said when a young sailor comes to them for more advanced training it is quite a shock. Most kids are used to racing what we call Optis, boats designed for them and it is exciting for young kids. But after a while they get bored and some of them leave sailing, she said. We try to capture them and introduce them on an F-16 class boat which is bigger and faster. It is like a rocket ship by comparison and the kids get an adrenaline rush and say it is over the top. We have yet to get a kid on an F-16 that doesnt get off the water and say it was fabulous. It was a rush. The actual Olympic sailing boats are N-17s. Reed Deer Racing operates both and it isnt cheap. The N-17 costs anywhere from $31,000 to $33,000 and the F-16 costs about $20,000, said Nickerson. We really dont have a choice of what we buy. If you are going to train for the Olympics then you have to do it in boats approved by them. The boats are multi-hulled; they are catamarans, Hobie-cats. Nickerson said the sailing competition in the upcoming Summer Olympics has been changed and she said it is for the better, that there is now a level playing field. They took sailing out of the last Olympics but now it is back in, she said. The difference is that this time they have dictated that there must be a mixed crew, a male and a female. So everybody is starting out with a clean slate. There is no Olympic history with mixed crews. Training mixed crews is what Daniel is doing on the Causeway. One of his students is Sarah Streater, 18, a senior in high school in Fort Lauderdale. She makes the four-hour drive to Dunedin every weekend to train. It is crazy but it is a lot of fun, she said. There are great sailors in this class and it is lots of fun to compete against top sailors. Streater has been sailing with Matthew Whitehead, 21, a USF student from Panama City. She feels they have the chemistry they need to be successful. We have been sailing together for a while, she said. The last time we competed together we placed second, he is my main crew. Their goal? Predictably, the Olympics. Im planning on trying for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, said Streater. Hopefully we can be the top USA boat and then go and win a medal. Do we have a realistic chance? I think so. We are a top team right now and we feel good about competing against other teams. Daniel agrees it is a good goal to have, but wonders if it might not be a bit premature.Olympic hopefuls training on Dunedin CausewayThe goal to make the Olympics is possible, anything is possible, he said. You have to start off with that attitude, realistically they should be shooting for the 2020 games, but none of these guys want to do that, they want it now, four years is a long time for them. As for his own Olympic aspirations, Daniel said they are probably over. I have it in me to have another go at it, he said. But you have to look at what makes sense. It is a lot of money; you have to find a way to pay for it all. Im more focused on coaching and making a living. Olympic campaigning doesnt do anything but cost you money. Daniel said he is encouraged that the U.S. Olympic Committee has begun to fund his sport more than it ever did before. Despite the fact that he likely wont compete for an Olympic spot anymore, Daniel says he has no intention of giving up sailing, ever. I love being out there and the competition, he said. I can combine the joy of sailing with the joy of helping others enjoy sailing as much as they can. His methods must be working. Take it from Streater, one of his students. Robbie is a good coach, I absolutely love Robbie coaching, she said. I learn something every day. Hes a great sailor and whatever you can get out of him will make you great. I learn so much just being with him. Photo by BRIAN GOFFCoach Robbie Daniel shows student Sarah Streater some of the finer points of Olympic sailing at his facility on the Dunedin Causeway.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:RoboCopGenre: Action, adventure, science fiction and thriller Cast: Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle and Marianne Jean-Baptiste Director: Jose Padiha Rated: PG-13 In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years, but have been forbidden for law enforcement in America. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance to build a part-man, partrobot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine.Winters TaleGenre: Drama Cast: Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jennifer Connelly, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint, Russell Crowe, Ripley Sobo and Mckayla Twiggs Director: Akiva Goldsman Rated: PG-13 Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, Winters Tale is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) is a master thief, who never expected to have his own heart stolen by the beautiful Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay). But their love is star-crossed: She burns with a deadly form of consumption, and Peter has been marked for a much more violent death by his one-time mentor, the demonic Pearly Soames (Rus-Opening this weekendRoboCop reboot hits big screen; Winters Tale stars Farrell, Findlay Photo courtesy of COLUMBIA PICTURES/MGM PICTURESJoel Kinnaman stars in Columbia Pictures Robocop. sell Crowe).

Endless LoveGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Alex Pettyfer, Gabriella Wilde, Robert Patrick, Bruce Greenwood, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigby and Joely Richardson Director: Shana Feste Rated: PG-13 There is nothing more overpowering, reckless and all-consuming than the rush that accompanies first love in all of its intensity and obsession, possibility and promise. It is a timeless theme in modern storytelling, dating back to Shakespeares star-crossed lovers, but one that remains urgently current because it serves as a rite of passage for everyone in every generation. Endless Love stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde in the story of Jade Butterfield and David Elliot, a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. Although separated by class boundaries, their gravitational pull is undeniable and unstoppable. During the months following their high school graduation, Jade, a sheltered young woman with a lim itless future, becomes enthralled with David, a working-class boy with a troubled past who in turn falls head over heels for her. Their romance collides with Jades controlling fathers attempts to steer her clear of David, while her mother encourages the relationship to thrive and his father advises cleareyed caution. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, two young lovers will defy logic and allow their all-consuming passion to determine their future together.The following will open in limited release.

Enter French anthropologist and Native American researcher Georges Devereux (Amalric), called in by the hospital to make sense of their baffling patient. Through increasingly vivid conversation, Picard and Devereux develop a compelling friendship as they embark on an exploration of Jimmys memories and dreams, an experiment they conduct like a couple of detectives in this intelligent and extraordinarily moving film from Arnaud Desplechin.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Seminole fire truck pull gears up By BRIAN GOFFSEMINOLE For the past seven years, one of the highlights of the annual Seminole Pow Wow Festival has been the fire truck pull. Teams of people, young and old alike, grab onto a rope and pull a fire truck for 100 feet in a competition to see who can do it the fastest. This years competition takes place March 1 in the parking lot of the Seminole Library during the Pow Wow. Its never too early to begin to line up teams and sponsors for the event, and that is what organizer Wayne Madasey has been hard at work doing. Madasey has been involved with the event, which is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Seminole, for the past three years and has seen it grow considerably. Around the time I took over, there were five teams and six or eight sponsors, he said. Since then weve averaged about 20 sponsors and 11 teams. This year, hopefully well get more, especially from the high school; wed like to get 12 or 14 teams. The teams that participate in the event arent just restricted to the schools. In fact, Madasey says there are a wide variety of categories. Of course we have the high school and middle school teams, he said. We also have adult men teams, adult females, adult mixed teams, men and women, and there is the teen mixed division. There are also teams from businesses and that is where the Features Business . . . . . . . . . .14A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . .9-10, 18A County . . . . . . . . . . .6-7A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-4B Faith & family . . . . . . . .11A Health & tness . . . . . .12, 19A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Military . . . . . . . . . . .16A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .8A Pet Connection . . . . . . . .15A Real Estate . . . . . . . . .13A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .17A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising CorrectionA story on the Feb. 3 debate between candidates for the District 13 House of Representatives seat held in the Digitorium at St. Pete Colleges Seminole campus contained errors about two candidates positions on three issues.

Cop plays the bad guyRetired undercover detective teams up with local filmmakers to make horror movies By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE After retiring from his job as an undercover narcotics detective for the Sheriffs Office three years ago, Randall Speakman was uncertain what his next step would be. Then, his mother succumbed to cancer. Not long after that, his brother died from a heart attack. I would wake up and feel like I had no purpose, Speakman said. But things slowly got better. He bought the London Bus Pub with his friend and business partner, Brad Doran. He also began making horror movies, including last summers House Guest, with a pair of local filmmaker brothers, Brian and Jake Jalbert, and found he had a knack for playing the bad guy. It saved me, Speakman said. Between the Bus and meeting Brian and doing movies. I think its the main reason Im still here. Speakman and Doran met while hanging out at the Angry Pepper. Speakman was considering a move to Bradenton at the time, but the two would talk about what it would be like if they opened up their own bar. When the longtime owners of the London Bus Pub put the business up for sale, Doran and Speakman jumped at the chance to buy it. That business has been there over 41 years, Doran said. Its roots go that far back in the community. The community was their primary motivation for buying the restaurant they wanted to give back, Speakman said.

Childs Play actor Alex Vincent, right, scripted and starred as Rob Murphy in the film House Guest. The film was shot locally in Seminole and in Vincents New Port Richey home. The movie featured London Bus Pub owner Randall Speakman, and was produced by Brian and Jake Jalbert. Vincent is pictured with his co-star Maylin Morera, who played Jen Murphy.SEMINOLE Registration has begun for the fifth annual Forever Friends Golf Tournament Saturday, April 5 at Seminole Lake Country Club. The tournament is held yearly in honor of Nate Richardson, Keith MacCollom, Joey Ruzecki and LeShawn Smith who died on April 10, 2009 in a car accident in Seminole. Richardson, MacCollom and Ruzecki were students at Seminole High School. Smith was a student at Largo High School. All of them were standout students. Smith and MacCollom were members of their high school basketball teams and Richardson was on Seminole Highs baseball team. All money and proceeds raised from the tournament will go toward scholarships in the boys names at Seminole High School and youth opportunities around the city of Seminole and Largo. Within the past four years, the tournament has raised over $125,000 in college scholarships as well as $45,000 in grants for kids. There are many ways that residents and businesses can donate and participate in the tournament. The entry fee to play is $160 per person. The fee includes a lunch and dinner provided by Seminole Lake Country Club, 18 holes of golf, one mulligan, putting green and straightest drive contests, four closest to the pin contests and 12 raffle tickets. Forever Friends is also looking for a title sponsor, which is $4,000. With this sponsorship, the sponsor gets entry of two foursomes, along with four extra dinners, business name on tournament brochures distributed around the community and a banner recognizing them and their business. A gold sponsorship is $1,250 and includes entry for four players, a gold sponsorship sign along with hole sign on the course and four additional dinners. A silver sponsorship is $1,000 and includes tournament entry for four, a silver sponsorship sign and a hole sign. A bronze sponsorship is $750 and includes entry for four players and a bronze sponsorship hole sign. There also is the opportunity for a business to be a putting green sponsor or a driving range sponsor. Both are $250. Any resident or business can be a get a hole sign for $100. There will be a silent auction as well as a live auction during dinner. The families are looking for item donations for both. If anyone is interested in joining for dinner, each dinner is $25. The deadline to register to play in the tournament is March 31. For more information about the tournament, visit www.foureverfriends.org.Citizens Academy starts in April, registration underwaySEMINOLE The city is accepting applications for its Citizens Academy, which will be held every Wednesday at 6 p.m. during the month of April at City Hall, 9199 113th St. Residents will learn about city government, tour facilities and interact with city staff.

The pair also wanted to create a friendly atmosphere, a second home. Its a Cheers atmosphere, Speakman said. Hey, how you doing? Everybody knows each others name. Then a chance encounter with Brian at a local Subway fast food restaurant led him in a different direction. Speakman overheard Brian talking with friends about shooting a movie. Intrigued, Speakman stopped to chat. The Jalbert brothers, Boca Ciega High School graduates, filmed weddings through their company Iyrus Entertainment by day, and made action and horror movies in their free time. Speakman had always been interested in acting. After all, he had spent 27 years with the Sheriffs Office, where acting was an integral part of his job as an undercover detective. He expressed an interest in working on one of Brians films and the two exchanged contact information. Their first project together was a short film, Love Struck. This is when they realized Speakman had a knack for playing the bad guy. He took on the role of a seedy pawn shop owner who was running drugs on the side. He was a bad dude, said Speakman, who added that roles like that come naturally to him because of his background. As an undercover cop, all I did was work with bad guys. They entered the film into the 2012 Action Film Challenge.

A business pays $150 as a sponsor and gets to enter a team. The money raised goes to the various programs supported by the Kiwanis Club. In March we have a program called (Every) Child a Swimmer at the Seminole Rec Center, said Madasey. We take 120 kids who are 10 years or older and bring them into the pool. Most of them cant swim, but after 10 or 12 days they can either swim or handle themselves in the water. We have a 95 percent passing rate in that program. In addition to that, the Kiwanis Club puts a lot of money into the Horses for Handicapped program. We support that program to the tune of $1518,000 for the upkeep of the horses, he said. We also give $6,000 to graduating seniors in scholarships. All our proceeds go toward helping those programs. Madasey said the fire truck pull isnt the only fundraiser the club is involved in during the year. He said the Christmas tree sale every year is important, too. We sold 249 trees in 12 days this year and made over $4,000 from that, he said. For now, however all the attention is going toward the fire truck pull to make sure that it is successful. Wendy Strickland has participated in the event for the past three years. She works at Allen Sports and has entered a team from that company each year. It is very fun. I get a group of my girlfriends and we bring our kids and they get to pull the truck too on their own team, she said. It is fun and a good community event for Seminole. Strickland said she can remember the first time she pulled a fire truck and what it was like. It feels very heavy, she said. It feels heavy, but once it starts it comes along pretty well. But it isnt easy; it is definitely heavy to pull. Madasey says he looks forward to the event every year because it involved so many people who are attending the Pow Wow. We not only have plenty of teams, but lots of spectators as well, he said. It is announced at the carnival and you can see the people come over to watch it. We always have good attendance and it is a fun event. Madasey says being the organizer gives him the best job of the day. Ive got the megaphone so I get to announce the events, he said. It really is a fun day. FIRE TRUCK PULL, from page 1A Photo courtesy of GENE STERNChuck Oldanie, a local Realtor and member of the Seminole Lake Rotary Club, spoke at the clubs Feb. 7 meeting. He presented his vision of how three prominent charitable organizations with similar intentions Rotary International, Seeds of Peace and Habitat for Humanity may some day work collaboratively to promote the idea of peace through understanding. Oldanie has been working on this potential collaborative effort since 2000, and recently saw the results of his efforts when he organized a Habitat build in Mumbai, India, which was coordinated through local Rotary Clubs and Seeds of Peace.Collaborating for peace Frank Joshua Vento, 48, of Seminole, passed away on Feb. 3. He served as a lieutenant for the City of Seminole Fire Department for 25 years and also as a fire inspector for the City of Gulfport. Vento was the station officer for Fire House 31 and was active with the departments Hazardous Materials team, as well as being an EMT. He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Lisa Vento; his children, Christopher and Megan Vento; his mother Mary K. Vento; his sister, Betsy Athey; and nieces and nephews. Saying goodbye HOUSE GUEST, from page 1ASpeakman was named Best Villain and Brian won the award for Best Actor. Next came the thriller House Guest, which premiered at Muvico in Ybor City last July. In House Guest, a group of friends gather at one of their homes only to realize a murderer terrorizing their city is one of the guests. Speakman joined the brothers as co-executive producer and funded the $3,000 needed for the budget. They also brought in Alex Vincent, the child star of the Childs Play movies. Not only did Vincent star in the film, but he wrote the script as well. Brian met Vincent, who lives in New Port Richey, after publishing an ad on Craigslist seeking local scriptwriters. Hes such a down-to-earth guy, Brian said. He wrote it, and I thought it would be cool to get him to star in it as well. The movie can be rented on Vimeo On Demand at vimeo.com/ondemand/houseguest/74246288 and DVDs can be purchased online. Now theyre hard at work on their next projects, In Your Image and Seconds to Run. Seconds to Run is about a group of white trash rednecks that toy with their victims by giving them a 10-second head-start before hunting them down. In Your Image, based on a dream Speakman had, is about two twin brothers adopted out to two different families one very loving and supportive, the other abusive. Each brother takes a very different path in life, and, not knowing the other exists, encounter each other later in life. I dream in vivid detail, Speakman said. Its crazy, Brian said. He made a dream come true. They passed Speakmans notes from the dream on to local scriptwriter Jim Duncan who formatted it and fixed it up. Now theyre trying to grab the attention of aGrandmas take on grandpas in softball gameST. PETERSBURG The 75 and older Freedom Spirit of Florida womens softball team will compete against the 80 and older Kids & Kubs mens softball team on Tuesday, Feb. 27, at noon. The game will be held at the North Shore field, adjacent to the St. Petersburg swimming pool on North Shore Drive. All are welcome to come watch this Grandmas vs. Grandpas softball game. Freedom Spirit has a successful year in 2013. They participated in five tournaments, finishing first place once, second place twice and third place once. The tournaments were held in both Florida and outside the state in Jacksonville and Pensacola, Fla.; Cleveland, Ohio; Hendersonville, Tenn.; and Dalton, Ga. Lake Seminole Square sponsored a spaghetti luncheon for the team last year. This beneft raised enough money for two tournament entry fees. The team is also seeking additional donations. For more information, call Ethel at 3854661 or Del at 365-2188. Filmmaker Brian Jalbert on the set of the thriller House Guest. The film premiered last summer and can now be purchased at www.houseguestfilm.com. big name actor to star in it. Daniel Baldwin and Ice T are two actors who have asked them to make an offer, Brian said. He also reached out to Kevin Spacey, but he received a polite email telling him that Spaceys compensation would be greater than the films entire budget of $5,000. Just the fact that he got back to us is pretty cool, though, Speakman said. For more information, visit www.houseguest films.com and iyrusentertainment.com.Photos courtesy of BRIAN JALBERT

He said the reserve capacity built into the system is needed to ensure response. In addition, he said, the plan shifts the costs of the system to the fire side. Graham expressed his dismay that county staff had not scheduled a private meeting with him to talk about the details. He wants to know exactly how the changes will affect Lealman. It is dj vu, said Commissioner Janet Long, referring to past discussions on EMS when the staff presentation differed from the view of the fire departments. Robert Polk, president of the Pinellas County Fire Chiefs Association, said, Its a never-ending dilemma, adding that his words were not intended to fuel a debate. One of his concerns is the plan to freeze costs after the end of three years of cost reductions. His bigger issue is taking units off the street. Something has to suffer, he said. He advocates more meetings and more discussion. He is concerned about the ability to respond to fires that involve injuries in the middle By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys Emergency Medical Services is among the best in the nation. But that quality comes at a price that is getting harder and harder to afford. For years, staff has been looking for ways to cut costs without damaging response times and service. Prior studies and plans were rejected. Relationships between the county and the municipalities and fire districts that provide first responder services have become strained. Still, something has to be done before the EMS millage rate reaches the cap and the reserve fund is depleted. Staffs most recent proposal comes from recommendations by consultant Fitch and Associates. Implementation of the recommended CARES model calls for reduced staffing of fire stations during nighttime hours when activity is at its lowest. CARES stands for Community-wide Alignment of Resources for Efficiency and Service. Fitch says using a CARES-2 could save Pinellas millions of dollars over time. Under the proposed new funding model, no change is recommended for Dunedin, East Lake, Gulfport, Madeira Beach, Oldsmar, Pinellas Suncoast, Safety Harbor, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island. Increased funding is proposed for Palm Harbor, Seminole and Tarpon Springs. Decreased funding is planned for Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg. The reductions would be phased in over three years. Staff estimates a savings of $2.3 million in fiscal year 2014-2015. St. Petersburg takes the biggest hit with a reduction of more than $1 million over three years. Clearwaters funding would go down $669,690; Largo, $527,566; Pinellas Park, $504,789; and Lealman, $285,454. Tarpon Springs funding would increase by $381,531. Palm Harbor would receive $240,740 more. Seminole would get an increase of $143,945 in part to pay for service to Redington Beach and Redington Shores. Currently, the county pays for two positions per rescue truck 24 hours a day for 48 hours of funding. Under CARES, two positions per rescue truck would be funded for 14 hours a day plus one position on an engine for 10 hours for 38 hours of funding. The number of funded positions would go from 84 to 79.28. Bruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, said that staffing changes would not affect the countys average response time of 7 minutes, 30 seconds 90 percent of the time. Speaking at a Feb. 4 work session, Moeller said response time improvements are predicted for service to Tarpon Springs, Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Madeira Beach, St. Pete Beach and areas serviced by Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District. Response time decreases of a few seconds are possible in Clearwater, Largo, Lealman, Oldsmar, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor and St. Petersburg. County Administrator Bob LaSala is optimistic about the plan, estimating savings of $18 million to $20 million in the first three years, if you add in cost avoidance. In 10 years, savings could mount up to $58 million to $60 million, he said. LaSala said he reviewed the plan with mayors and city managers from 14 cities and four fire districts. Leaders from Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Oldsmar, Clearwater, Seminole, St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island reportedly said they were prepared to recommend the changes. Weve been talking about this for a long, long time, said Commissioner Ken Welch. I hope we can bring it in for a landing. Moeller reported that CARES 2 does reduce overall response times by about 5 seconds, but said the increase should not affect the average of 7 minutes 90 percent of the time. Most calls currently are answered in about 4 minutes. LaSala said staff would work with the 18 providers of first responder services to create more efficiency. Well look to see if we can address the 5 seconds by how we assign calls throughout the system, he said.ObjectionsLealman Fire Chief Richard Graham believes the new plan will decrease the level of service. I understand it will save money, but what is a life worth? he asked. He disagrees with the Fitch studys assessment that the EMS sys-Plan may balance Pinellas EMS fundingCounty staff continues negotiations with 18 first responder service providers Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERBruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, explains the latest plan to contain costs of the countys Emergency Medical Services during a Feb. 4 work session.

Depending on how a buyer is made aware of your home, price is often the first thing he or she sees, and many homes are discarded by prospective buyers as not being in the appropriate price range before they're even given a chance of showing. Your asking price is often your home's "first impression", and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it's imperative that you make a good first impression. This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a home seller as pricing too low. Taking a look at what homes in your neighborhood have sold for is only a small part of the process, and on its own is not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recent study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled "Homesellers: How to Get the Price You Want (and Need)". This report will help you understand pricing strategy from three different angles. When taken together, this information will help you price your home to not only sell, but sell for the price you want.

We have to accept that. Despite, his concerns, Polk said he believed the latest plan is closer than ever to something all sides can support. He added that the countys fire chiefs had not yet met to discuss the recently released proposal. Who is getting money and who is not, thats a cloudy issue, he said. He agreed with Graham that individual meetings between fire departments and county staff were necessary for everyone to understand the effect of the proposed changes. LaSala said he planned to work with the decision makers for each of the 18 service providers not necessarily the fire chiefs. LaSala then left the room. This is not the first time weve been subject to this type of behavior, Polk said. He pointed out that a city manager was not a decision maker. Polk, who also is chief of Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District, said he was offended to be diminished and belittled at commission meetings. He talked about recent incidents that had taxed Pinellas Countys resources to the maximum. He said storms tax the system to absolute maximum. And you never know when theyre coming, he said. Hurricanes dont sneak up on us, but they tax our resources. He said due to the countys vulnerability when access to the mainland was lost when bridges were closed, it was important to be more self-sufficient than landlocked counties. LaSala returned to the meeting and apologized to Polk, saying he had not meant to demean you or others. Palm Harbor Fire Commissioner Norm Atherton said he believed the county had negotiated in good faith a deal that he would recommend to his board. However, he also had some concerns about certain aspects and the lack of communication. Communication is never perfect, said Commission Chair Karen Seel. But I pledge that each fire department will receive a presentation. Seel added that as of Feb. 2, she had served on the commission for 15 years. EMS and fire have been contentious issues, she said. Its been a journey these last 14 years for some of us here, Morroni said. Its upsetting that there is still a communication issue going on here. Commissioner Charlie Justice said it was difficult to make a decision when one side says EMS is subsidizing fire service and the other side says EMS is not paying for itself. The important thing is that were close, Commissioner Norm Roche said.

Prior to last weeks big blow, we had some spectacular days on speckled trout. Were still targeting areas of sandy shell bottom mixed with sparse grass. Bouncing red and gold jigs up off the bottom has been working very well, as we move along the color change edge were able to show our jigs to a lot more fish than if we were using live shrimp. However, the shrimp will work very well once the fish are located, especially if you feel like there might be some big fish in the area. Look for the bite to turn back on in a big way this week. Our water temperature should get back up into the 60s by the weekend with the good tides brought on by the full moon, and rest assured that somewhere out there the trout will be biting. Places to check will be Fort De Soto. The park offers many spots for anglers to get out of the wind for one, but its close proximity to deeper gulf and bay waters allows for good clean water with tremendous grass growth potential. Target deep bomb holes, channel edges and general pothole bottom. Boca Ciega Bay is also good but often overlooked area for some big sea trout. Target island edges just inside Johns Pass when the water is clean. On a side note its not uncommon to find schools of pompano hanging in the deeper troughs around the islands. The entire east side of the bay from Gulfport to Park Boulevard can be good for both trout and reds. Find clean water and you should be in the right spot. St. Josephs Sound offers excellent trout fishing this time of year. Spoil islands both north and south of Dunedin Causeway can get loaded up with big trout at times. Target the deeper sides of the island. Thats usually where the better tidal flow is and that sand shell bottom is definitely what to look for.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Maxx)(727) 202-4344 021314 Knowing your childs love languageThis week is all about love. When I think of love, I think of my family. Like most of you, I love my family more than anything. The love parents have for their children is usually unconditional love. I know no matter what my kids do, I am going to love them. I may not agree or be happy with something they do, but I will always love them. Recently I started reading Gary Chapmans book, The 5 Love Languages of Children. The book is about how we as parents can best communicate love with our children once we know their primary love language. My girls know how much I love them, but according to Chapmans book some kids may not realize you love them if you are not filling what he calls in his book their love tank. He mentions five kinds of love in his book. They are physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts and acts of service. To find out your childs love language there is a list of questions the child answers. This multiple-choice quiz can be found in the book or for free online at Chapmans website www.5lovelanguages.com. You also can try seeing how your child responds when you give the different kinds of love languages. You can try a specific love language for a week and see what happens. Chapman says when you are giving your child their primary love language you see a difference in how your child behaves. I was interested in seeing what my two girls love languages were. I also wanted to answer the quiz to find out what my love language and my husbands love language was. I will tell you my husband thought the questions were a little goofy. I still made him take the quiz. I wanted to make this a family event. It was interesting to see that my girls love languages were different. One daughters primary love language is quality of time. This means when I spend time with her she feels loved. My other daughters love language is acts of service. So when I do things for her like help her with her homework or help her pick out her clothes, she feels loved. Chapman says that we need to give our kids their primary love language, but they will benefit from having all the love languages. I also thought it was interesting how he says knowing your childs love language helps with discipline and that discipline shouldnt be something negative. It should be out of love that we discipline. I did notice that after making a conscious effort at trying to give each daughter love in their love language that it did make a difference. I know they both know I love them, but they are happier when I am filling their love tank with the love language they speak. I think knowing their love language just enhances my relationship with each one of my girls. So when you think about the ones you love this week, think about filling their love tanks. Valentines Day may not be about giving candy, flowers or cards, but just might be physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time or acts of service.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole.

They help to locate our ancestors on the ground where they lived and worked, and thus go a long way in helping us more fully appreciate the lives they led. There is one type of map that is very helpful in this pursuit because it gives us such amazing detail, but which may not be in our awareness as much as the familiar road map or plat map is. That is the Sanborn insurance map collection.Those maps were originally created to aid in estimating fire insurance liabilities, and as such, insurance underwriters used the maps to determine risks and establish premiums. You can see from this use the reason for the detail that was provided. As a side benefit, they provide an insight to American urbanization that is typically not found in other types of maps. Therein lies their value to genealogists.The Sanborn Company, founded by a surveyor from Somerville, Mass., named Daniel Sanborn, began making these maps in 1867. In time his firm became the largest and most successful American map company. The company headquarters was in Pelham, N.Y., but had regional offices in other large cities across the county. It had a host of surveyors it used to record the location, shape, and other relevant details about buildings in all major urbanized areas throughout the country. In addition, it was surprising how many small communities also were the subject of Sanborn maps. The firm issued maps primarily between the late 1870s and the early 1960s for about 12,000 American cities and towns. Some areas had multiple editions produced, and even communities with as few as a couple of hundred people had maps made for them. The Sanborn maps themselves were produced on 21-inch by 25inch sheets of paper and bound in volumes. They were relatively large scale showing 50 feet on the ground to 1 inch on the map. Updates were pasted into the volumes until completely new editions were created. The maps included text or abbreviations to describe the purpose of the buildings, identifying them as dwellings, factories, businesses, etc. Each map typically covered a four to six block area, and included an index of streets and addresses, and special indexes for churches, schools, businesses, and such as needed. Because of their intended use, many details were provided to include outlines of each building and outbuilding, window and door locations, sidewalk widths, property boundaries, fire walls, natural features, railroad corridors, building use (sometimes even particular room use), composition of building materials, existence of sprinkler systems, locations of fire hydrants, location of water and gas mains, and more Their use to genealogists can be significant. We can make use of all that detail to learn about the structures our ancestors lived and worked in. Because of their detail, we can use them to determine which new house numbers correspond to particular old dwellings. We also can create a list of organizations and businesses in the area that may have been used by an ancestor. Such organizations may include churches, schools, laundries, groceries, etc. By researching those organizations, we may uncover new evidence and clues regarding a familys past. If used in combination with a city directory, we can develop an informative sense of the neighborhood in which our ancestor lived. Today Sanborn maps are found primarily in the archives and special collections of town halls and public and university libraries, some of which are on line. Cyndis List is a good place to look for sites (http://cyndislist.com), and the Library of Congress map collection lists thousands of maps where over 6,000 are online (http://www.loc.gov/rr/geogmap/sanborn). Another good reference is Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Sanborn_Maps), which lists Sanborn map collections by city and state, identifying many, which are digitized and online. If you are at a stage in your genealogy research where you want maps to help visualize aspects of your ancestors lives, dont overlook the value of Sanborn maps. They are a captivating reference to explore, and once you start to use them, you may find yourself drawn into the story they tell, whether they directly relate to one of your ancestors or not.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHealthy AgingA happy emotional outlook and sharp mental state are critical building blocks for overall good health in seniors. Physical health pales when a person suffers emotional distress and isolation, making them unable to enjoy life. In fact, emotional health and a sharp mind are critical for seniors when physical limitations prevail. Physical health can be maintained by exercising within your individual abilities, with your doctors consent. Exercise helps preserve muscle tone and bone density and can aid in balance and coordination. Daily exercise can be as simple as walking around the block or participating in a group exercise class at the local gym. Consuming a wellbalanced diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber, and protein provides nutrients your body needs to function properly inside and out. Mental health is facilitated by challenging yourself every day. Challenges can include participating in new activities, playing games you never have before or merely extending your knowledge in one subject. Creativity is key in keeping your brain sharp and your senses focused. Emotional health becomes endangered as seniors face the loss of a spouse and other loved ones. Isolation can become prevalent due to physical limitations or the lack of desire to socialize. Anxiety and depression can affect seniors who worry about money matters, have minimal contact with others, or for those who suffer serious medical conditions. Emotional health depends largely on happiness, which is influenced by increased socialization and less isolation. Encourage seniors to join clubs, volunteer, or dine together. Daily activities give a sense of purpose, a feeling of value and create happier states of mindwhich is key in potentially avoiding the effects of stress, anxiety and depression. The primary goal of seniors is to maintain independent lives in their own homes. It is essential for seniors to understand that in order to achieve this goal they must learn how to adapt to some of these changes by pursuing healthy lifestyles that can, in turn, make independence possible well into their golden years. Comfort Keepers is a leader in in-home senior care to promote independent living. Services include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, incidental transportation, laundry, recreational activities, personal care and technology products. 021314 021314 Chefs Specials for Lunch & DinnerSurf & Turf Twin Tails ... and More!

Tri-paw sweetheartCongratulations to Mila, a three-legged pit bull mix, who is Februarys Pet of the Month photo contest winner. Her human mom, Inga Martinez, adopted her from Pinellas County Animal Services, where she volunteers. Mila is now 2 years old and was adopted a year ago on Halloween. Even though she only has three legs, she still runs just as fast or faster than her four-legged buddies. Mila is a very athletic and fun dog. She was picked up as a stray with several old breaks in her front leg that had grown back wrong, so the leg had to be amputated, Martinez said. After the amputation, she spent 10 days in a wonderful foster home, and a few days later, Martinez adopted her. Mila loves her new home, where she also has an 11-year-old shepherd mix doggy brother, Roxy. They have a blast playing together, riding in the car and going for walks. Martinez said that after spending time with Mila, she has a pretty good idea how she got the breaks in her leg. The way Mila reacts to sticks, empty paper towel rolls, brooms, or anything that looks like a bat makes Martinez suspect that she was beaten. I make sure she never sees any objects that look anything like what could be used as a bat. I will make sure she never has to be afraid again, Martinez said. As Pet of the Month winner, Mila has won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

A healthy immune system is very important; many infections and diseases can be prevented, or made better, by a healthy and active immune system. More is not always better though, for other diseases occur when the immune system is too strong. The white blood cells and antibodies are the armies of the immune system, attacking invading bacteria, viruses and other organisms. The antibodies, and some white blood cells, recognize and attach to foreign invaders, directing the white blood cells to attack and destroy the bad germs. The antibodies are very specific; they need to target the causes of infection while avoiding the actual hosts own body. If the immune system is not strong enough, foreign organisms can come and cause disease. Bacteria can cause kennel cough, viruses can cause parvovirus, feline leukemia virus, or rabies, yeast can cause ear infections and fungus can lead to pneumonia, just to name a very few possible problems. Our pets bodies, and our own, are constantly being assaulted by foreign invaders determined to cause illness. But like many things in nature, there must be moderation with the strength and power of the immune system; an overactive immune system causes problems as well. If the antibodies and white blood cells react to normal substances, such as pollens or proteins in food, it can lead to severe skin allergies or asthma in the lungs. An overreaction to an insect sting can cause hives, facial swelling, or even anaphylaxis, where the throat swells shut. Even worse is when the immune system becomes confused and begins to attack the dogs or cats own body parts. If the immune system attacks the cartilage, it can lead to a rheumatoid arthritis. If it attacks the red blood cells, which carry oxygen, it can cause a spontaneous lifethreatening anemia (known as an auto-immune hemolytic anemia.) Sometimes the immune system attacks platelets, which allow the blood to clot, and cause spontaneous bleeding. The immune system can also attack the skin, causing horrible flesh-eating rashes called pemphigus. The controversy comes with regards to vaccines. Vaccines stimulate the immune system by helping it to practice fighting certain germs. The vaccine against parvo-virus allows the immune system to become and stay good at fighting this common disease, which leads to potentially fatal bloody vomiting and diarrhea. It is a very serious disease and absolutely needs to be prevented. At the same time, however, we need to be careful not to over-stimulate the immune system and cause other problems. The pendulum has swung back and forth on how often and how many vaccines to give our pets. Most universities now recommend against the vaccinate to everything every year protocol that was common a decade ago. At the same time, avoiding vaccines altogether has led to an increase in preventable diseases in people, and these pet infections still occur with frightening regularity. The answer lies somewhere in the middle and is a topic for discussion with your pets vet. Moderation is never easy; the middle ground is always filled with complicated grays instead of the easy black and whites. Keeping our pets healthy is important, and to do so we need to cross into that moderation space.Michael Rumore practices at Lake Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, and at online at www .LakeSeminoleAH.com.

Murphy Memorial VA Hospital were filled with elite high school football players as members of the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl teams visited patients and staff Jan. 1, 2014. Considered community outreach by the staff, it became much more to the players. Mason Cole, East Team offensive lineman and senior at East Lake High School in Tarpon Springs, Fla., never had this sort of experience before. Coming here was an awesome thing, Cole said. Me, myself and Im pretty sure everyone else have never been here or seen anything like this before. Seeing veterans ... it really goes to show how much they mean to us, how much they matter, how thankful we are for them. Players visited patients in both the Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center and the Community Living Center, meeting veterans that spanned many age ranges. In Johnnys room, his mother marveled that the players were so big and laughed as they tried to play catch with her son. When thanked, East Team defensive lineman Jesse Aniebonam, from Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md., simply stated, We are blessed to be in your presence. Players handed out small foam footballs emblazoned with the U.S. Army All-American Bowl logo and personally signed by the players, with each including a personal message ranging anywhere from thanks for all you do to God bless. One player, East Team defensive lineman Elisha Shaw of Tucker High School, Tucker, Ga., went above and beyond, creating miniature works of art by drawing pictures or intricate patterns on each of the footballs he delivered. This one is for you, I created it especially for you, he would say as he handed each one to a smiling patient. Although the patients appeared to be impressed by the players, commenting on their skills, their height, their obvious physical prowess, Zach Schmid, punter for West Team and player from Francis Parker High School in San Diego summed up what several of his teammates were feeling. We are able to do what we do because of people like you, Schmid said. Cole echoed the sentiment as he explained what it meant to be chosen as a U.S. Army All-American. It means a lot to me. Its the reason that I chose to come to this one (instead of other bowl options), I want to play in the bowl supported by the men and women that protect this country, Cole said. The 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl took place at the Alamodome Jan. 4. Story provided by 319th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment/DVIDS Photo by U.S. ARMY RESERVE SGT. 1ST CLASS LISA M. LITCHFIELDMembers of the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl East and West Teams participate in community outreach at the Audie L. Murphy Memorial VA Hospital in San Antonio, Texas on Jan. 1. Players spent the afternoon visiting with veterans and wounded warriors, handing out autographed footballs and expressing appreciation for the freedoms they enjoy. All-American players are selected from high schools across the country and are considered to be among the best athletes in the nation, with many alumni going on to distinguish themselves both collegiately and in the NFL.

It causes permanent brain damage. Smokers have difficulty concentrating. They suffer loss of memory, and all intellectual performance is impaired, especially in speech and math. Also their personality and emotions are abnormally affected, causing dullness, lethargy, loss of sense of time, hostile suspiciousness, and a false sense of euphoria. THC, a toxic chemical in this drug rests mainly in the fat cells of the body, particularly the brain. Marijuana damages the lungs and respiratory system 10 times faster than nicotine cigarettes. It also damages DNA (genetic cells) and the reproductive system and can cause abnormal births, according to a study at Columbia University. A second Columbia University study found that a control group smoking a single marijuana cigarette every other day for a year had a white blood cell count that was 39 percent lower than normal, thus damaging the immune system and making the user more susceptible to infection and sickness. Five marijuana cigarettes a week have the same cancer causing capacity as 112 conventional cigarettes. One marijuana cigarette causes a 41 percent decrease in driving skills. Two cigarettes cause a 63 percent decrease. Often it is difficult to detect a person who is stoned, as opposed to being drunk with alcohol and having an obvious odor. And all too often marijuana and alcohol are consumed together, studies find. If we legalize marijuana or remove penalties for possession or use, hundreds of thousands of youth will be tempted to try it. It has been known to be a gateway drug to even more dangerous drugs also. For these and many other reasons, marijuana should not be legalized in Florida. Nancy Davis SeminolePreserve a part of historyEditor: I am currently doing the historical reviews of all of Clearwaters history since its beginnings. I volunteer in the historical research section at the main library. I also have all the Belleview Biltmore history from Henry Plants first beginning in Belleair. Many historical sites, homes and buildings built as far back as the mid 1800s have been renovated, turned down but more importantly moved I think saving part of the Belleview Biltmore could be done as a win-win situation as so much of it has deteriorated. The historic Plumb house was moved and is a historical museum. It has vintage furniture, artifacts and a short video of its history. Recently, they moved the Turner House to Heritage Village. My suggestion: Donate and move the most historic part of the Biltmore to Heritage Village, where it can be restored to its original look. Perhaps it can be similar to the fabulous one at the University of Tampas museum. Change the code to residential with more single homes and townhouses to save green space and traffic issues. It is a win for the Belleview Biltmore because part of it will be preserved and visited for years to come. It is a win for our town because other important issues can be addressed and we will start being able to collect much needed tax money. Just a thought of mine while looking at hundreds of historic sites at the library. Many people have used clever solutions to preserve at least a part of history. Perhaps the town of Belleair can preserve the soul of Belleair while moving forward, which is always hard. Roma Allen BelleairShedding light on rights of rentersEditor: In a letter Why unincorporated, Dec. 26, the correspondent states the property I live on probably is not taxed. Well, I only rent here so it is not my fault I do not pay property taxes, Nothing could be further from the truth. When the owners of rental property set the rent they include the property tax in their calculation of how much to charge. Thus, in a very real sense the renter is the only one who really pays the tax on rental property, and the owner of the rental property is no more than a tax collector. Many of our founding fathers subscribed to the mythic idea that people who dont pay taxes shouldnt be given the vote, and since renters dont pay taxes they shouldnt be given the right to vote. The introduction to the article For Wider Suffrage (The Annals of America, Volume 4, page 640) describes the situation better than I ever could. The first state constitutions limited the suffrage to property holders. By the first decade of the 19th century, when those early constitutions came under review, there existed a new class of Americans, who did not own land, but who nevertheless felt a vital interest in government and were ready to press for the right to vote. Men like John Adams, Joseph Story, Daniel Webster, James Madison and James Monroe defended the status quo: They foresaw a society divided along economic lines, rent by conflict between rich and poor, and they feared that extension of suffrage would provide the masses with a political weapon with which to attack the rights of property. Liberals denied that the masses had any desire for class conflicts The attitudes and liberals and conservatives havent changed very much since then. The fears and phobias of our founding fathers led to some strange ideas on who should vote. Consider the letter On the Importance of Property for the Suffrage by John Adams, which is an answer to a letter from James Sullivan. The Annals of America, Volume 2, pages 422-423, includes the statement: Is it not equally true that men in general, in every society, who are wholly destitute of property are too little acquainted with public affairs to form a right judgment and too dependent upon other men to have a will of their own. And, this from the same letter, even more absurdly: why exclude women? You will say because their delicacy renders them unfit for practice and experience in the great businesses of life and the hardy enterprises of war, as well as the arduous cares of state. One can only wonder what the authors of stuff like that would have thought of Golda Meir, Indira Ghandi and Margaret Thatcher. I admit that I do not admire our founding fathers as much as others do, e.g., Justice Scalia. In this matter I stand with Benjamin Franklin who in a speech to the constitutional convention wrote I cannot help expressing a wish that every member doubt a little of his own infallibility. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 163. I also stand with George Washington who wrote, I do not think we are more inspired, have more wisdom or possess more virtue than those who will come after us. From the Annals of America, Volume 3, page 238. Palmer O. Hanson Jr. Largo Hes finally facing up to FacebookA week ago the Internet company, Facebook, marked its 10-year anniversary. Its a major success story about a college student named Mark Zuckerberg who conceived an idea, put it to work in his dorm room, and now is worth more money than most Central American nations. The idea behind Facebook was to help friends and family stay in touch. Today half the world, plus the population of several small planets, swap messages on Facebook. Most of the messages possess the intrinsic value of a rabbit sneeze, but the same thing might be said of the Internets other social networking entities such as Twitter, You Tube and email. No harm need result, and many users of Facebook gradually discover as they devote 10 or 15 hours a day to scrolling that they now have a purpose in life. I envy them. For the past few years Ive had a Facebook page, but Ive made the mistake of not really learning how the dadblamed system works. When Ive dipped my toes into the mix by sending or replying to messages wafted my way, my efforts have disappeared into the void. I end up not knowing if anyone received what I sent, or (even less likely) that they gave a hoot that I tried to get in touch with them. This includes instances in which I asked the addressee to get in touch with me by phone or by email, so that we could converse, so to speak, like two rational humans instead of furnishing our private thoughts to be read by dozens or hundreds of alleged Facebook friends, who might or might not remember who we are, or could care less. My connectivity batting average has been mighty low, but Ive enjoyed and appreciated those few persons who have responded. By now Ive had to admit that I may not be destined to be a successful social networker. Such a person, from what I can tell, emerges from the womb wearing a smile and attempting to shake hands with his/her mother, father, the doctor and all the nurses in the delivery room. He has a built-in knack for building friendships, and has a need to be in touch with as many persons as possible. As a Facebook fan, he wants to know and be known, and to share his thoughts and experiences no matter how pedestrian. But I could be wrong. Or half-wrong. On the opposite end of the Facebook spectrum could be persons who are shy, introverted, lacking social skills, and desperate to establish friendships, including the phony ones that can thrive even for a short time on Facebook. Have the professional researchers ever made an attempt to find and describe a typical Facebook user? If so, please let me know what was learned. I fall somewhere between the two extremes Ive listed above. I enjoy meeting and knowing people, but not so much that I reach out very much to them. I value conversation, but not with certified looneys. As I scroll through Facebooks entries, I sense that the soup du jour for most of the exchanges is at the level of superficial backyard gossip rather than the stating of deep concerns on matters of universal importance. And thats to be expected. After all, who would want to reveal her/his innermost feelings to a gallery of viewers many of whom, if she met them face to face, wouldnt know her from Adams off ox? Still, Facebook obviously is powerful and useful. As I begin writing this column, the networks are telling of a young woman, an Olympian speed skater, whose family will be with her in Sochi only because Facebook viewers read about the familys need for the funds that would make their trip possible. The word went out, and the donations came in. Facebook indeed has wings. Not too many years ago humans communicated by means of smoke signals, drums and carrier pigeons. Along came the U.S. mail, pony express and telegraph, followed by the telephone, wireless Morse code transmissions and voice radio. Not long thereafter society was graced with television, the computer, fax machines, the Internet and its stepchildren email, Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, and Instagram. Im sure Ive missed a few citations. Each of these inventions helped to shrink the world and bring its inmates closer, along with the question Just how close to people do I need or want to be? Also, Along with all this newfound intimacy, are we any wiser, happier or more loving? Facebook can help us answer these questions, at least for those participants who care enough to ask them.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Retirement: challenges and advantagesIts been more than three years since I retired. I believed at the time that living by calendar schedules, fighting commuter traffic and fending off lifes challenges was behind me. I liked being a Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. I feel privileged to again be granted an occasional 15 inches or so of editorial page space to report on or vent on topics dear to my heart. Modern senior citizens are unlike those of decades ago who often spent their remaining years in back yards or front porches waiting to die. Todays older Americans are more active, more involved, and certainly more cerebral than those of preceding generations. Often times we travel, perform volunteer work or merely track the adventures of Jerry Springer or Steve Wilkos and wonder where they find those people that appear on their shows. Thanks to modern electronics we keep up on current events through newspapers, television, and smart phones that do practically everything but brew the morning coffee. My step granddaughter knows all about contemporary electronics. She is the go-to person in the family when our gadgets refuse to work. But I have grown to absolutely abhor automated telephone systems that banks, credit card and insurance companies employ. Patience is not one of my virtues. Dealing with electronic voice commands that demand pushing buttons to answer questions instead of talking to real people is challenging and frustrating. Just recently I threatened an electronic voice with something that would be impossible to accomplish without being a contortionist. The metallic response: Thank you, I will transfer you to a representative. I sometimes wonder how my mother who was in her late 80s and legally blind overcame the obstacles of modern survival.Then there are the doctor visits where nurses and office workers often affectionately address seniors as honey and sweetheart. Many of us resent that. Last month my wife had to undergo a colonoscopy. The doctor actually presented us with before and after color pictures of the procedure. I wondered aloud if I should have them enlarged to frame and hang over the living room sofa. And why would a doctor specialize in that sort of thing, anyway?Being a senior citizen does have its privileges. We get modest discounts at restaurants and stores. My days of flashing press credentials are over. I now offer an AARP card. People seem to be more courteous to older folks. Last year we visited New York City and I was astonished over how many young people offered me a subway seat. I declined each time, proving instead that I was wholly capable of hanging on to a stanchion pole without being catapulted through the entire length of the train as it roared into the 42nd Street station. As age advances we find that accomplishing once-routine chores has become slightly difficult. Young women in skimpy clothing are less interesting. Mowing a lawn is challenging on hot summer days. We suffer from aches and pains. We forget easily and actually obey traffic laws. I am fortunate to have a wonderful wife and an extended family. I still go to the gym three times a week. We travel. Im reasonably healthy and still set goals for the future. There arent too many things I would change if I could rewind my life. Perhaps I would practice patience, listen more to what people have to say, accept human idiosyncrasies, and put my mind in gear before starting my mouth.As for the good old days ... theyre just beginning.

In fact in Dunedin they come from a spot along the causeway. Take a drive and you will see budding Olympic sailors working out every weekend. They have been doing it for several years and who knows one or more of them might be participating in the next Summer Olympics in 2016. The athletes training on the causeway are being coached by Robbie Daniel, 51, himself an Olympic class sailor who came within a hair of participating in two different Olympics in the late 1990s and during the last decade. He said it was a lot of work for him and a lot of work for the students who are learning from him now. It winds up being nearly a full time job, he said. There is all manner of training to do, not just with the boats, but also physical training. Those boats are pretty physical so you have to be fit. It is part of the training. It is at an elite level. It doesnt matter what sport it is; there is so much detail and it makes you a better athlete. Daniels Olympic sailing career really began when he was 12 years old and began racing competitively. He progressed through the system and ultimately took part in four Olympic campaigns. A Campaign is a four-year regimen that takes place between Olympics and it ends with trials and races to determine who the U.S. Olympic Sailing Committee chooses to represent the country at the Olympics. Daniel came close on two occasions. Twice I finished second in the last race, he said. Going into it I was tied, I still had a chance in the last race to win the selection. Daniel said the pain of not winning after four years of such hard work, wasnt as bad as he imagined. I was obviously disappointed, but you are kind of prepared for that all along, he said. Obviously, you are disappointed and heart broken, but it was not as devastating as I thought it would be. Right after the race you have to begin to pack up and get ready to go home and get on with life so that helped me not to dwell on it so much. It was around that time that Daniel began coaching and hes been at it ever since. His wife, Jill Nickerson, 54, is also his partner in the business, Red Deer Racing. She said when a young sailor comes to them for more advanced training it is quite a shock. Most kids are used to racing what we call Optis, boats designed for them and it is exciting for young kids. But after a while they get bored and some of them leave sailing, she said. We try to capture them and introduce them on an F-16 class boat which is bigger and faster. It is like a rocket ship by comparison and the kids get an adrenaline rush and say it is over the top. We have yet to get a kid on an F-16 that doesnt get off the water and say it was fabulous. It was a rush. The actual Olympic sailing boats are N-17s. Reed Deer Racing operates both and it isnt cheap. The N-17 costs anywhere from $31,000 to $33,000 and the F-16 costs about $20,000, said Nickerson. We really dont have a choice of what we buy. If you are going to train for the Olympics then you have to do it in boats approved by them. The boats are multi-hulled; they are catamarans, Hobie-cats. Nickerson said the sailing competition in the upcoming Summer Olympics has been changed and she said it is for the better, that there is now a level playing field. They took sailing out of the last Olympics but now it is back in, she said. The difference is that this time they have dictated that there must be a mixed crew, a male and a female. So everybody is starting out with a clean slate. There is no Olympic history with mixed crews. Training mixed crews is what Daniel is doing on the Causeway. One of his students is Sarah Streater, 18, a senior in high school in Fort Lauderdale. She makes the four-hour drive to Dunedin every weekend to train. It is crazy but it is a lot of fun, she said. There are great sailors in this class and it is lots of fun to compete against top sailors. Streater has been sailing with Matthew Whitehead, 21, a USF student from Panama City. She feels they have the chemistry they need to be successful. We have been sailing together for a while, she said. The last time we competed together we placed second, he is my main crew. Their goal? Predictably, the Olympics. Im planning on trying for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, said Streater. Hopefully we can be the top USA boat and then go and win a medal. Do we have a realistic chance? I think so. We are a top team right now and we feel good about competing against other teams. Daniel agrees it is a good goal to have, but wonders if it might not be a bit premature.Olympic hopefuls training on Dunedin CausewayThe goal to make the Olympics is possible, anything is possible, he said. You have to start off with that attitude, realistically they should be shooting for the 2020 games, but none of these guys want to do that, they want it now, four years is a long time for them. As for his own Olympic aspirations, Daniel said they are probably over. I have it in me to have another go at it, he said. But you have to look at what makes sense. It is a lot of money; you have to find a way to pay for it all. Im more focused on coaching and making a living. Olympic campaigning doesnt do anything but cost you money. Daniel said he is encouraged that the U.S. Olympic Committee has begun to fund his sport more than it ever did before. Despite the fact that he likely wont compete for an Olympic spot anymore, Daniel says he has no intention of giving up sailing, ever. I love being out there and the competition, he said. I can combine the joy of sailing with the joy of helping others enjoy sailing as much as they can. His methods must be working. Take it from Streater, one of his students. Robbie is a good coach, I absolutely love Robbie coaching, she said. I learn something every day. Hes a great sailor and whatever you can get out of him will make you great. I learn so much just being with him. Photo by BRIAN GOFFCoach Robbie Daniel shows student Sarah Streater some of the finer points of Olympic sailing at his facility on the Dunedin Causeway.

When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance to build a part-man, partrobot police officer.

Endless LoveGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Alex Pettyfer, Gabriella Wilde, Robert Patrick, Bruce Greenwood, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigby and Joely Richardson Director: Shana Feste Rated: PG-13 There is nothing more overpowering, reckless and all-consuming than the rush that accompanies first love in all of its intensity and obsession, possibility and promise. It is a timeless theme in modern storytelling, dating back to Shakespeares star-crossed lovers, but one that remains urgently current because it serves as a rite of passage for everyone in every generation. Endless Love stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde in the story of Jade Butterfield and David Elliot, a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. Although separated by class boundaries, their gravitational pull is undeniable and unstoppable. During the months following their high school graduation, Jade, a sheltered young woman with a lim itless future, becomes enthralled with David, a working-class boy with a troubled past who in turn falls head over heels for her. Their romance collides with Jades controlling fathers attempts to steer her clear of David, while her mother encourages the relationship to thrive and his father advises cleareyed caution. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, two young lovers will defy logic and allow their all-consuming passion to determine their future together.The following will open in limited release.

Meanwhile, desperate to get her poems published, Amy stalks an aging punk poet figure named Rat Billings (John Cusack), one of the greatest poets of the early s. Rat reluctantly agrees to mentor her. As Amy makes new friends, including a drag queen named Rubia, the elderly couple who own Adult World, and Alex, the charming and quirky young manager, she learns that she might not be the voice of her generation after all.Date and SwitchGenre: Comedy Cast: Nicholas Braun, Hunter Cope, Dakota Johnson, Sarah Hyland, Nick Offerman, Gary Cole, Megan Mullally and Wendi McLendon-Covey Director: Chris Nelson Rated: R High school seniors Michael and Matty have been best friends since third grade.

A WWII vet plagued by excruciating headaches, dizzy spells, hearing loss and bizarre dreams, Jimmy Picard (Del Toro), a Native American Blackfoot, is labeled schizophrenic by a military hospital confused by his condition. Enter French anthropologist and Native American researcher Georges Devereux (Amalric), called in by the hospital to make sense of their baffling patient. Through increasingly vivid conversation, Picard and Devereux develop a compelling friendship as they embark on an exploration of Jimmys memories and dreams, an experiment they conduct like a couple of detectives in this intelligent and extraordinarily moving film from Arnaud Desplechin.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.
