The Warhawks started slow, falling behind 11-0, but took a 21-19 lead into the locker room at the half. Seminole built a 12point lead in the third quarter, but North Port wasnt finished playing yet. With 30 seconds left in the game North Ports Malek Barber hit a three-pointer to tie the game at 57-57. It looked as though the Bobcats may mount a comeback, but Frain hit a three-pointer with just over three seconds left on the clock to give Seminole the win 60-57.

Page 1B.Pompeii, Days to Kill, Barefoot to open this weekend Council sets stormwater drainage standard By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council approved a resolution to establish a Stormwater Level of Service standard for public drainage facilities at its Feb. 11 meeting. It is important that we do establish a level of service as we move forward with drainage issues and drainage concerns, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. The city hired Tampa Bay Engineering to study its drainage facilities and to create a Master Drainage Plan. TBEs plan is based on a 25-year/24-hour storm event (with approximately 9 inches falling in a 24-hour event). The plan utilized an A through F grading system, which was used to identify current drainage service levels. TBE then recommended adopting a Level of Service D, which provides the most cost-effective approach for adequate drainage protection. In other action items, the council also: approved a $1,200-contract for Roadtrip Productions to sound and lighting for the 201 Pow Wow Festival. We have had some experience with this particular vendor, Edmunds said. Its the low-cost proposal to provide such services. Roadtrip Productions has provided similar services for preview Pow Wow events and the Music in the Park series. authorized a $500 donation to be given to Cross Bayou Little League. The council gave Cross Bayou a similar donation last year and intended it to be a one-time donation. So it wasnt written into the budget this year, Edmunds said. But theyve suffered a lot as a result of vandalism since last year and are seeking some funding to bring it back up to its prior status and condition, he said. Though located in an unincorporated part of the county, Cross Bayou attracts some players who are Seminole residents living east of Seminole Boulevard. appointed Phyllis Schaefer to the Tree Advisory Committee.Girl Scouts to honor Mayor Leslie WatersTAMPA The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida will honor Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters as one of its 2014 Women of Distinction at a luncheon Tuesday, March 18, at Tampas A La Carte Event Pavilion.

Pinellas County residents asked to conserve water By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County asked residents to conserve water for 10 days, Feb. 18-28 while workers install a new meter at the Keller pump station located off Keystone Road in Tarpon Springs. Its a complex construction. Welders will be working around the clock, said Kevin Becotte, plant operations manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructures Water and Sewer Division. The work is part of two major construction projects designed to help stabilize pressure and improve the quality of the countys drinking water supply. Pinellas County is collaborating with Tampa Bay Water. Plans for the work began in 2011. The first project is replacement of the Keller pump station, which is more than 50 years old. The second is installation of a half-mile pipeline where water from Tampa Bay Water and Eldridge-Wilde wellfields will be blended before entering the countys system. Currently, workers are installing a new meter on a 66inch pipeline. To do the job, Utilities had to shut off the main pipeline. A temporary pipe is carrying the load, but its a smaller diameter pipe, meaning it cant deliver as Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY UTILITIESThe 50-year-old Keller Pump Station located in Brooker Creek Preserve in Tarpon Springs is being replaced by a new, modern pump station part of a two-phase project to improve water delivery and quality to Pinellas County.many gallons of water per day. To make up the difference and keep the water flowing, the city of St. Petersburg will supplement the water coming from the Eldridge-Wilde wellfields and Tampa Bay Waters regional supply. The EldridgeWilde property, located in Pinellas but owned by Tampa Bay Water, has about 24 wells that pump into the water supply system. Becotte doesnt anticipate any problems while the meter is being installed. Still, water conservation by the public would help ensure there was enough water for everyone over the 10 days. He asked that people delay activities that would require large quantities of water, such as refilling swimming pools or pressure cleaning. People also are asked to refrain from lawn watering, car washing, installing new sod/landscaping and operating fountains. Becotte pointed out that conservation in daily use, such as not leaving the water running while brushing teeth, shaving, washing dishes and reducing See WATER, page 4ACOMMUNITYLarry Smart wins Sunset 5K raceThere is something about Belleair and the annual Sunset 5K race that brings runners back year after year.

Well be OK. Utilities had scheduled to do the work two week ago, but due to faulty equipment a valve that would not shut properly installation of the new meter was delayed. Becotte said the operation was well planned. He described the collaborative effort between the county, Tampa Bay Water, the contractor and engineer throughout the construction process as fantastic. The whole project will benefit Pinellas County, he said. The new pump station is more efficient. It will use less electricity. The water quality will be better. In addition, maintenance cost will be less for the station due to availability of parts. The old pump station is over 50 years old. We were fabricating replacement parts because they dont make them anymore, Becotte said. Utilities has contingency plans in place just in case something goes wrong with the current project. But we want to let everyone know this is happening so they can help with conservation. We want to keep the public informed, he said. Well know if the project is successful if people say they didnt notice a difference at all.

A ballot question is scheduled to appear on the Nov. 4 ballot, asking voters to approve allowing physician-supervised use of cannabis. Bills filed in the House and Senate of the Florida Legislature Feb. 10, call for legalization of controlled use of medical marijuana. Pinellas County Commission Norm Roche, who serves on the Public Safety Coordinating Council, brought the subject up during the Feb. 11 commission meeting. He said the coordinating council was looking at what county ordinances might be affected if medical marijuana was legalized. Its a very fascinating discussion, Roche said. Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch asked about the paraphernalia ordinance enacted when he was chair in 2006. Roche said it was among those being considered. He said the sheriffs office also was looking at what county laws legalization might affect. Welch pointed out that if medical marijuana were legalized, an education campaign likely would be required to inform the public that not all marijuana use was legal.Push for legalizationUnited for Care is the backer of the constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana. The Florida Division of Elections confirmed that enough signatures had been validated to put the measure on the November ballot and the state Supreme Court approved the ballot language in January. The Florida Division of Elections reports that Pinellas County residents accounted for 76,787 of the 786,368 valid signatures favoring placing an amendment on the ballot. According to the nonprofit lobbying organization Norml, the amendment would allow doctors to recommend cannabis therapy to their patients and authorize the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes. To pass, the amendment needs 60 percent approval by voters. House Bill 859 and Senate Bill 962 also would allow the use of medical marijuana in Florida. The Senate Bill, titled the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, which failed in 2013, is xnamed after a Manatee County woman suffering from Lou Gehrigs disease. Jordan has used marijuana for medicinal purposes for more than a decade. Authorities raided her home Feb. 15, 2013 and seized marijuana plants being grown by her husband. The couple argued that the plants were used to treat her medical condition. Eventually, the Manatee County State Attorneys Office dropped charges against the couple. Tampa Senator Jeff Clemens took up the cause, filing a bill in 2013 and 2014. Clemens bill calls for the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to regulate the industry and be responsible for licensing and permitting of dispensaries and farms.OpponentsOpponents of legalizing medical marijuana, including state Attorney General Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott, argue that marijuana is illegal according to federal law. Bondi filed a motion with the state Supreme Court in January trying to keep the constitutional amendment off the ballot. She argued that the ballot title and summary was misleading. The Supreme Court subsequently approved the ballot title, Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions, and the summary, which says, Allows the medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating diseases as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not authorize violations of federal law or any nonmedical use, possession or production of marijuana.ProponentsUnited for Care says on its website that marijuana is currently legal as medicine in 20 states and the District of Columbia. Information on the homepage states that marijuana has been shown to be an effective treatment for the symptoms and side effects associated with HIV/AIDS, cancer, hepatitis C, PTSD, MS and other neuromuscular disorders, glaucoma, and chronic pain. The American College of Physicians, American Public Health Association, American Nurses Association, and many other associations and organizations support the availability of medicinal marijuana. The Witchs Brew Caf and Pub, 1219 Florida Ave. in Palm Harbor, is offering a monthly educational series on the subject of Hemp and Cannabis starting Tuesday, March 11, 6:30 p.m. The eightmonth series scheduled on second and fourth Tuesdays continues through October.

Pinellas commissioners amend procurement policies By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners said yes to amendments to the purchasing code Feb. 11 that change approval authority and eliminate the commissioners approval of vendor rankings. The amendments were the result of work by the Contract Administration Review Team, which has been meeting since December 2012. CART was given several goals, including improving the efficiencies in the contract administration process while maintaining internal controls and accountability for staff and the parties that contract with the county, according to a staff report. The deliverables supporting his effort include establishing enterprise contract administration guiding principles; revising ordinances, policies and procedures to increase efficiencies; creating a contract administration manual; and establishing staff training program, the report said. Assistant County Attorney Dennis Long and Purchasing Director Joe Lauro provided CARTs recommendations to the commission Oct. 29, 2013. After receiving the commissions input, some recommendations were modified. A Feb. 11 public hearing was scheduled to discuss the final recommendations and approve the amendments. One amendment gives the county administrator the authority to approve change orders not exceeding 10 percent of the amount awarded by the commission or $250,000, whichever is less. Staff said the modification would greatly expedite contract closeouts and provide improved efficiency to many contract change orders that now require Board approval. The amendment also updated language to reflect current business process. It also eliminates the requirement that all contracts/instruments be filed with the Clerk of the Court. The county is working on an electronic contracts repository and automated agenda process. Contracts will continue to be filed with the Clerks office until the electronics repository is established. CART also revised most of the code governing bidder suspension and debarment so that non-performing firms could be penalized for poor performance in a more expedient and effective manner, staff said. Suspensions shall be based on documented contracting issues, such as breach of contract, vendor misrepresentation, criminal offense, fraud and conviction of a public entity crime, the report said. Long, who was attending his last commission meeting in an official capacity before his retirement, said CART had identified more serious code violations when considering reasons for a suspension. He also said the action had to relate to the vendors business, not a personal violation. He gave an example of someone being cited for a lawn watering violation, which he said would not count. Code outlining the vendors protest procedure was clarified to remove sections open to interpretation. Code governing the competitive sealed bidding process now clarifies that the county administrator can reject all bids or portions of bids. Another amendment adds advisory board members to the section of code on lobbying. Current code does not require the commission to approve rankings of firms or authorize staff to negotiate on contracts before final approval; however, historically, rankings have come to the commission as part of the process. Staff said obtaining approval on the ranking of firms conservatively adds four to six weeks to the contracting process. CART recommended eliminating commission approval except for operating agreement for the Waste to Energy Plant, Emergency Medical Services Transport and other contracts as necessary and required. The commission agreed. CART also recommended revising several longstanding procedures, which were not part of the code, but have a direct impact on the contracting process. Changes were made to the contract review process and master contract boilerplates. CART will continue its work and provide future recommendations as needed to improve the contracting process. Commissioner Norm Roche questioned how the commission would track the process of contracts in the system. Commissioner Janet Long also wanted to be informed, especially on contract extensions, so commissioners could respond to complaints from the public. County Administrator Bob LaSala said a quarterly report could be prepared. This releases some of authority of the board, Roche said. I just want to be able to monitor. Commission Chair Karen Seel thanked Attorney Long for his service. Youre a brilliant lawyer with a wicked sense of humor, she said. In other business, the commission: Unanimously approved a minor plan change for Largos West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment Plan Special Area Plan. The change allows the city to include language to provide economic and non-economic incentives for development and job creation. Scheduled a public hearing on March 18 on Business Technology funds for the Justice Consolidated Case Management System project. Adjourned to the conference room and away from the television cameras to discuss board, council and committee appointments, as well as Vision Tourism 2025. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel explains why she could not support one of the amendments that changes approval authority. Seel recalled issues with construction on U.S. 19 and the problems caused with project extensions. Visit www.TBNweekly.com

But we too have our winters. We can only go boating about half the time during the winter months as during the summer months. Curiously, our local dolphins seem to have a similar schedule. If you are boating along our local stretch of Intracoastal Waterway this month, you might see local bottlenose dolphins. Then again, you might not. On average, they are here about half as often in the winter as they are in the summer. That average arises from the combination of great sightings and poor sightings. You can see as many dolphins on some winter days as you would see on steamy summer days. On other winter days, you might not see any dolphins. The primary reason is that bottlenose dolphins show a type of mini-migration almost regardless of the habitat in which they live. Their migrations are modest: They tend to move between different bodies of water in summer and in winter. Those who spend their summers in large bodies of water migrate into small bodies of water for the winter, and vice versa. Locally, the dolphins that inhabit the Intracoastal Waterway during the summer tend to inhabit the Gulf of Mexico during the winter. Likewise, dolphins that we do not see in the Intracoastal Waterway all summer reappear during the winter. These strident individualists are dolphin teens. Dolphin teens are the product of a small but critical maritime assembly line that produces a handful of treasured teens each year. It starts in the summer when some of the females that belong to the Johns Pass dolphin community give birth. Their previous calf must fledge in the process called weaning but has the option of leaving home right away or taking its time. Some leave as soon as the new sibling is born. Ousted older calves that take their time usually do not stay in the same social group as their mom and new sibling but stay in their vicinity, often just a bay away. Less often, the older calf continues to swim with its mom and new sibling in the same group. It varies by individual. On average, calves take two to four months to begin appearing with age-mates. Thus, most have made the jump by Christmas. That is why the dolphins you find in winter waters are particularly likely to be small intense gatherings of sleek gray individuals that are bigger than calves but smaller than adults. They are easily recognized by their signature spouts of energy, at one moment gushing around a boat in a bid to surf its wake and the next bursting with bright curiosity about whatever is happening 50 yards away. Because of their restlessness, it is hard to get a close look at them. If you could, you would see that, like Qballs picture, they have clean coats and few scars. This will change steadily for most of the males. This year, the little local assembly line only produced one treasured teen, Qball, although there were five calves born to local moms. One of the moms, Sharkey, was a first-time mom this year. She did not have a previous calf that turned into a teen when she gave birth to young Echo. The other four moms had previous calves. One of the moms, Stick, had Savannah in 2011. He was a lively sturdy kid that showed some striking adult behaviors. But he disappeared in 2012, as did most of the other calves that were born in 2011. We have no explanation for this dark outcome, only disturbing ideas. That left three older calves to turn into teens. Two were little boys Juno and Fugazi. Like other young males we know, they did not wait for their moms to give birth again, instead striking out together on their own last year. Interestingly, even though they weaned without the impetus of a new baby sibling, we found them in the general vicinity of their moms J and Front Slash for many months. It was perhaps a maritime counterpart to moving out of your parents house but moving into the room over their garage. That left one more: Qball. May she experience only the best adventures of dolphin adulthood.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Its still a bit early to think were out of this current weather pattern, but even one skip in the cold front rotation has to be taken as a good sign. While the rest of the country couldnt even imagine getting some fishing in over this past weekend we were fortunate enough to get a break in the weather. With water temperatures still holding around 60 degrees, fishing still much remains a hit or miss affair. Inshore, redfish have been a reliable target on this recent full moon phase. Afternoon high tides have proven to be best, as the water has had plenty of time to warm throughout the morning hours. Mullet schools that seem nonexistent on the lower water have been coming together on the higher tides. Drifting through the schools of mullet while fan casting scented soft-plastic jigs has been producing quality sized redfish as well as the occasional big trout. For more consistent trout action, target spoil islands throughout the northern part of our region. Free-lining select shrimp on the hard part of the incoming tide typically on the north side of the islands has been producing steady action for trout ranging in size from 16 to 20 inches with plenty of larger fish mixed in. Offshore weve seen a big influx of mangrove snapper on during this recent full moon. Targeting ledges and artificial reefs in 30 to 50 feet water will put you in the right spot. Sending down a chum basket full of frozen shrimp will draw in a variety of fish when the current is moving. Fish with a live shrimp and a lightweight, on the same sized rod you would use for redfish.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wellerstein Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported a preliminary count of 4,831 manatees in Florida during this years statewide aerial survey, conducted in late January. A team of 20 observers from nine organizations counted 2,317 manatees on Floridas east coast and 2,514 on the west coast of the state. This years manatee count is the third highest we have recorded since the first statewide aerial survey in 1991, said Gil McRae, director of the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. We are encouraged by the relatively high count, especially given the high number of manatee deaths documented recently. Information on warm-water habitat use from this years survey will be integrated with manatee survival and reproductive rates to update future population projections. The goal of the aerial manatee survey is to count as many manatees as possible, providing researchers with a minimum number for manatees in Florida waters and a snapshot of where they are at the time of the survey. Weather conditions and manatee behavior during the survey have a large effect on survey counts. Because these factors vary from year to year, this count cannot be used to determine long-term population trends. After two winters of above-average temperatures, this year we received several consecutive, strong cold fronts that helped to gather manatees at warm-water sites where they could be more easily counted, said FWC manatee biologist Holly Edwards. The surveys highlight the importance of warm-water habitat to manatees in the winter, increasing researchers understanding of manatee distribution and relative use of these areas that are essential to manatee health and survival. The survey information helps managers better protect this endangered species. Researchers have been conducting statewide aerial surveys since 1991, weather permitting, to meet the states requirement for an annual count of manatees in Florida waters. Statewide aerial surveys were not conducted during the winters of 2012 and 2013 due to warm-weather conditions. Florida residents can help manatees by purchasing a manatee specialty license plate and a manatee decal. Funds from the license plate and decal support manatee research and conservation. Go to BuyaPlate.com to learn more about the license plate and MyFWC.com/ManateeSeaTurtleDecals to purchase a decal. Both items are available at county tax collectors offices.

TORRESLARGO The Feb. 6 meeting of the Starkey Parkies, a support group for those dealing with Parkinsons disease, began with a vocal exercise, not unlike ones professional actors and singers use to warm up, explained facilitator Ken Fradain. The circle repeated tricky syllables and complicated tongue twisters, each doing their best to enunciate and project the sounds. Speaking clearly and loudly is just one of the challenges those suffering from Parkinsons disease can face on a daily basis. Fortunately for me, I have not been affected that way yet, said Fradain, who acted as group facilitator for the first time that meeting. (For) some folks, the Parkinsons disease affects the muscles in their throats and causes problems with swallowing, and sometimes they cant speak loud enough. The Starkey Parkies is a grassroots group that meets at the Grand Villa on Starkey Road to provide a welcoming atmosphere of support, explained group leader Theo Betjemann. Many of the attendees came with a spouse or partner in their fight against the disease. One caregiver invited the group to the funeral for her mother, who had recently passed away of the disease. Aside from moral support, the monthly meetings are a forum to share exercises to forestall the effects of the disease, the latest medical tips and developments and stories that inspire each other to continue fighting. People need this kind of group, said Maria Portes of Largo, who has fought against the disease for almost 14 years. Honestly, its a very hard disease. I wish people would get educated about it. Portes was one of the initial organizers of the group, which first met in November. The organizers have been pleased by the positive response the group has had, evidenced even by the attendance of that first meeting. We got so many people. We couldnt believe it. It was overwhelming, Portes said. The original facilitator of the group, Marcy McCall, an author of a book on the disease, had to step down due to an unrelated illness. But the area set aside for the group at the Grand Villa was still filled with attendees during its most recent meeting. Portes said many people who dont experience Parkinsons disease firsthand still have a narrow view of it. They come to something like this (and) they think theyre going to see a room full of people shaking, but thats not what it is about, she said. The stiffness is my major complaint. Its hard. At my stage now, I have a lot of trouble walking sometimes. Even members of her own family dont completely understand. Once, when Portes was visiting with family about six months ago, she began to leave the room and found herself stopped. All of a sudden, I just couldnt walk. I just froze there, she said. Her brother asked her what was wrong. I said, Nothing Im frozen. He said, Why dont you put a sweater on? I was cracking up, Portes said. My brother, you have to get a little bit more educated about Parkinsons. The biggest challenge is how unpredictable the disease can be, she said. The medication sometimes just doesnt work as well as it should. I can be feeling fine now and 10 minutes from now, Ill be a mess, Portes said. Everybody always says, You look so good, but they dont know what we walk through. You have to walk in other peoples shoes. On the other side of the room, Bill Ohsa of Largo carried refreshments back to his seat and suddenly couldnt stop his hand from spilling the plastic cup of red juice. I get shaking and I cant stop, the retired construction worker explained as he recovered and began mopping up the floor. Arlene Dawson, sitting nearby, was unfazed by the spill. She lives at the Grand Villa, having given up her doublewide trailer in Clearwater, along with her independence, about three years ago, shortly after being diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. The ongoing fellowship and the information the group provides is important, she said. Her priority now is to make sure her brother, who lives in Ohio and was diagnosed with the disease before she was, also has a support group he can rely on. The ease and understanding that comes with socializing with others familiar with Parkinsons is key, explained Patty Nuytten of Largo, another organizer of the Starkey Parkies. You can get very isolated with Parkinsons. My voice is particularly affected, so I dont talk much on the phone. And its just hard to coordinate things, she said. You find yourself pretty much just staying at home if you dont do something like this. There tend to be two types of the disease. Nuytten is more affected by the stiff, rigid side of Parkinsons, as opposed to the shaky kind of Parkinsons, she said. She agreed that sudden onset of symptoms makes the disease particularly challenging. One minute, you could be fine and five minutes later, you can barely walk across the room, she said. During a socialization break, Anneliese Tedeschi of Pinellas Park sought out fellow group member Mike Mugharbel of Seminole. I noticed he walks without the walker now, she explained. Tedeschi had a fall recently and broke her neck. She has healed enough to no longer need the halo brace, but hasnt fully recovered. Now I cant get out of the wheelchair, she said. Since he got rid of his walker, I was trying to find out (how). Mugharbel said he tackled various kinds of exercise on his own to regain his mobility. Im proud of it, he said. You look like youre doing very well, Tedeschi commented. Staying active is particularly challenging to those suffering from Parkinsons, but its key to forestalling the progression of the disease, group moderators emphasized. In fact, the Feb. 6 meeting included a yoga demonstration designed to enhance mobility and stretch tense muscles. Bob Etchells of Largo said hikes and biking were his primary form of exercise. Im not sure how safe that is, he said with a smile, explaining that the other bikers on the Pinellas Trail move a bit faster than he does. Etchells, a retired computer engineer, said the camaraderie and awareness of the latest developments in Parkinsons made the Starkey Parkies group useful. Hes also discovered a better doctor through recommendations of its members. Its inspiring, said Robin Hirschberg, who is relatively new to the supportive community, having only been diagnosed with Parkinsons in October. The members of the group are sometimes more knowledgeable about the disease than his own neurologist, Hirschberg said. Another attendee, who did not want to give his name, agreed: those who suffer from Parkinsons are able to recognize its symptoms in others, often before doctors do. Aside from encouraging its members, the group hopes to raise general awareness of the disease, said Betjemann. Parkies can continue to live a meaningful life through personal awareness, improved self-care, socialization and various therapies, she explained. All of this becomes worthy of celebration when, through support of each other and the acceptance and embrace by the mainstream community, we are able to create victories over daily challenges created by the disease. The group ended with a vocal exercise. As a group, the Starkey Parkies voiced healthy affirmations aloud. My intention is to maintain health and wellness for myself, they said together. I am grateful for the health I have now. Opportunities to reverse any and all symptoms always come my way. The group meets first Thursdays, 1:30 p.m., at the Grand Villa, 750 Starkey Road in Largo.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerBe Your Own Best Advocate.Many seniors today live alone in their communities as their children live and work in other areas. Although the children may visit often, typically they are not present when it comes time for mom or dads doctors visits or other appointments they attend for their well being. One of the most difficult things for patients, is knowing how to ask questions of a doctor. You owe it to yourself to ask these questions, especially when it comes to prescribed medications. Take a list of your current medications and vitamin intake along with you. It is important to review each drug recommended and learn of all the side effects that are a possibility. Because time is limited it is important to make a list of any questions you have pertaining to your health so you are sure to get your answers before walking out the door. Jot down the answers if you fear you may not remember them. Invite a friend or caregiver you trust to go along with you for support. This person does not need to speak for you but their presence may ensure that someone is caring for you. This relative or friend can help you remember the key points made by your doctor.If you're not sure you understand what is happening, ask questions until you feel comfortable. It is important to know all of your options when diagnosed with a problem. If tests are recommended, be sure to ask what they entail so you are comfortable if you choose to go forward with them. Learn if there are side effects to these tests. It is quite normal to feel worried about speaking frankly with your doctor, but your doctor will be able to be more sensitive to your needs if you inform him of your concerns. He or she is there to help you with all of your medical concerns. It is important to be assertive and to gather all the knowledge you can regarding your health. Communicate openly in your effort to receive the right health care. Advocate with confidence for you!022014 3233 East Bay Drive, Suite 102, Largo, FL 33771We are a debt relief agency.

In December, Bondi announced a settlement with DADATA Inc. and others resolving allegations that they charged customers telephone bills for voicemail, e-fax and other services without the customers consent. The agreement requires the companies to refund all charges billed since July 1, 2009 to eligible Florida customers who did not consent to the service for which they were charged. Refunds may total approximately $2.3 million depending on the number of claims made. Individual refund checks are estimated to average $134, and they may be as high as $700. Claim forms must be submitted by April 12. Additionally, claim forms may be printed out for mailing, or the form may be completed and submitted online. Customers who previously received some credit or a refund may be eligible to file a claim for additional money. An independent claims administrator is handling the process.

13A Seminole Beacon, February 20, 2014I keep hearing about the war between the richest 1 percent of Americans and the other 99 percent of people. Tom Perkins, a Silicon Valley billionaire, recently published a letter in the Wall Street Journal. In it he compared todays vilification of Americas moguls with the Nazi persecution of Jews. He may have overstated his concern, but I think hes correct in assuming that todays War on the Wealthy does exist. I dont know much about economics, but Im able to ask questions. Following are a few that strike my mind on a Tuesday unshaven morning with a cup of coffee beside me and another 10-degree F. New England air mass hovering outside my window. How would or will I know when I reach the super-rich level? Has someone defined exactly how much wealth a person must have before he/she can be hated by the rest of us? Wed better find out, because one day there may come a knock on the door. An ominous voice will say, The latest figures are in. They show that you have crossed the line into SRT super-rich territory. Prepare to face the consequences. And what will they be? For openers, I hope both the rich and the poor will avoid violence. The rough stuff seldom helps either side. And it would be unfair to the rich guys. As a rule poor folks have more guns and know how to shoot straighter than billionaires who spend their spare time on yachts ordering their hired skippers to Bring her a few points to starboard, Kowalski. On the other hand, we all know who usually wins when the rich face the non-rich in legal proceedings involving armed assault. If super-rich is not clearly defined, how will the poor know precisely who our enemies are? What if we select someone as a target of attack, and then later discover he/she was NOT really super-rich but merely comfortable or well off? When the economic wars break out in earnest, what will some of the weapons be, on both sides? Exorbitant taxes on the wealthy immediately come to mind. But that will require action by Congress and state legislatures. Many of them are already controlled by the rich and powerful of both parties, and thats not likely to change. Economic boycotts may become a more effective weapon. Lets say that the Sigafoos Corporation, which makes most of the worlds oatmeal, is owned by a man worth $300 billion who pays his workers next to nothing. One day on the Internet, the Citizens Boycott Center sends out this message to every American: Stop buying Sigafoos Oatmeal! Within a few months, the Sigafoos Corporation has vanished. However, many other companies frightened by the Sigafoos boycott will have suddenly increased their workers wages, and are now run by CEOs whose salaries may not exceed 100 times what their janitors earn. Would such a tactic work in real life? I dont know. Its easy to concoct solutions on paper. Besides, its been pointed out that as Tom Perkins (above) climbed the slippery plutocracy pole, he created 275,000 jobs and generated more than $90 billion for persons other than himself. The Robin Hood theory of income distribution, if put into effect, would surely please those persons who received money taken from the coffers of the super-rich. But would the mathematics hold up over the long run? If, overnight, almost all of the 1-percenters financial holdings were re-distributed to families earning, say, less than $20,000 a year, would that really solve our nations inequality problems? Todays rich vs. not-rich conflict is by no means historys first example of economic imbalance. In the 40 years following the Civil War, titans such as Carnegie and Rockefeller ruled our country and ushered in the age of conspicuous consumption. Teddy Roosevelt and his trust-busters brought a peaceful end to that vulgar splurge. In contrast, France in 1789 and Russia in 1917 witnessed bloody and terrifying rearrangements of the economic order. Could such upheavals ever take place in the USA? I certainly hope not. But even the faint possibility of such events should act as a spur for our government and individual citizens to seek and find an end to this dissension. I doubt if most Americans favor the random, wholesale ransacking of the ultra-richs bank accounts. What fair-minded men and women desire is to return to the time when hard work, perseverance, some degree of talent and a level playing field assured contenders at least a 50-50 chance of achieving pay dirt and some kind of hoped-for dream. Did such an era ever really exist? Could we ever get back to it? Stay tuned.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.I have found the issue that can bring America together. Republicans and Democrats, urban hipsters and country folk, corporate scions and infrequent fliers they all seem to agree: The federal government must not allow mobile phone use on planes. If the Federal Communications Commission allows airlines with properly equipped planes to open the cellphone gates on commercial flights, even Washington agrees there will be revolts in the friendly skies. On Tuesday, by a bipartisan voice vote, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed a bill, the Prohibiting In-Flight Voice Communications on Mobile Wireless Devices Act, to the House floor. Chairman Bill Shuster, a Republican from Pennsylvania and the bills author, argues that at 30,000 feet, fellow passengers do not have the option of walking away from obnoxious loudmouths. Ergo, the Department of Transportation must ban voice calls on planes. Shuster, however, does favor regulations to allow passengers to use their phones and tablets to text, send emails and work online. Hes got a catchy slogan: Tap, dont talk. Me, I feel sorry for the poor chumps at the FCC. Since 1991, the FCC has banned cellphone use on planes, lest the signals interfere with wireless networks on the ground. With the advent of technology that can prevent interference, the FCC revisited the rule. In October, the FCC ruled that passengers may leave their phones on (in airplane mode) and personal electronic devices during takeoff and landing because its mission is to regulate technology, not passenger behavior. Kudos, the public should cheer. Finally, a regulatory agency that doesnt want to overreach its authority. Shuster himself noted that it is the responsibility of the Department of Transportation, not the FCC, to make rules in the name of airline safety. Unconcerned with jurisdictional matters, however, the public has flooded the FCC with protests. According to The Associated Press, 48 percent of Americans (78 percent of frequent fliers) oppose allowing passengers to talk on their phones. I get it. As airlines try to make flights cheaper a good thing seats are closer together and service lacks even the oh-so-modest frills of yore. When flying is a chore, passengers get grumpy. Its no fun even just riding public transportation next to a bigmouth, and city bus rides dont last six hours like a cross-country flight. The flying public fears air rage incidents. That said, Americans are overreacting. The FCC conducted a study of countries that allowed cellphone use on planes in 2012; none of the 11 authorities that responded reported any cases of air rage or flight attendant interference. Most countries reported low usage and short calls, and if there were complaints, they were about the cost or interruption of service. Remember when U.S. airlines installed those pricey middle-seat phones? There were no mutinies in the sky. If the FCC allows voice calls, my guess is that U.S. airlines will prohibit or strictly limit usage. Delta and Southwest have announced their intent to just say no. Legal departments, litigious consumers and flight attendant unions should take care of the rest. I know world travelers who pay big bucks to visit countries that offer hole-in-the-floor plumbing and bus rides with barnyard animals and who nonetheless are terrified at the prospect of flying on a U.S. airline on which other passengers can make cellphone calls. Truly, we live in a golden age. Americans idea of hardship is flying safely over the entire country in six hours, with access to movies, music and their choice of news. But oh, the horrors, someone else being able to make a phone call? For this, Congress will act.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.lessons from a female ski instructor, who I nicknamed Bulldog. She barked at me all day: Snow plow! Snow plow! Snow plow! Voil, better. Later during the lesson, as I was musing over whether the assorted bruises to my ego and my body were worth the aggravation, Bulldog gave me some hope. You come back tomorrow. I think youre starting to get your balance. No? Ellen and Bill had other plans. Go with us instead. Well take you to a bunny slope, Ellen said. Like hell. There are no bunny slopes in the Alps. I started the morning out by crashing into the ground after leaving the lift. Spent most of the day in the snow of a glacier looking up at little French kids skiing over me. But I survived and swore over several glasses of beer that I would return to Chamonix the following year and become something other than an icon for comic relief on the slopes. A year later, I was still crossing skis and performing yard sales, much to delight of other group members. There goes Germond again, bowling for skiers, Bill said. Come on, Tom, we need to get down the mountain sometime today, Ellen said. In Kitzbuhel, Austria, in 1993, the lack of snow further impeded my abilities to improve but I didnt look as wobbly as members of some Swedish ski team who were joined arm in arm while they sang the lyrics to Hey Jude for what seemed to be hours at some crazy Austrians beerhouse later that evening. By 1997, I think I was starting to get my balance. Took a downhill 37-mile ski trip to France via northern Italys system of torturous lifts that might have been built by Caesars army. We were told to bring our passports, leading me to wonder who was going to check them. Nobody unless you wanted to eat or dink something at an alpine restaurant. Never tried night skiing. However, in 2001 after the crazy Austrians plied us with alcohol and yodeling for a couple of hours, we were tempted to try night sledding. Then the crazy Austrians told us the trail was the darkened road on which we drove to get to the restaurant. We declined. Safety is not in the crazy Austrians vocabulary. By then, I think even the bulldog French ski instructor would acknowledge that I had approached the intermediate level on the ski slopes. I could get down the hill. Voil; I was happy. Recently, as I sifted through the contents of my suitcase, including a ski bib, trail maps, long underwear, headbands, goggles, and, for some reason, a bottle opener, those memories of great trips came rushing back. Reminiscing is a priceless pleasure. Im eternally grateful to Ellen, Bill and their extended family for introducing me to skiing and taking me on some great trips abroad. Cant part with my ski apparel at least not yet. It will remain in my suitcase in my cluttered closet. Right next to my racquetball bag.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

The writer should have used I believe or I feel or think rather than provide information as facts. I do not know where the writer obtained the sources for the information but not all corroborate the science of marijuana. Smoking marijuana can be a danger to health. I base my findings on information from the National Institute of Health website, but it says nothing about DNA changes. The site also says when used heavily some of the adverse effects occur. Now to the other critique of the article. Does the writer differentiate recreational vs. medicinal use? There are certain people who would benefit from marijuana use especially those suffering from terminal illness and from chronic pain. The writer makes no mention of the benefits. It is my understanding that the present proposal that will be on the ballot is for medical use only. Possibly some cases would occur where people would abuse marijuana but for those, who suffer from the aforementioned conditions, marijuana should be a treatment. David Robinson St. PetersburgSave, restore the BiltmoreEditor: The recent town hall meeting was as lively as ever when the subject was the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Since the Town Commission agreed to stay the zoning for another 6 months, the priority becomes to find a buyer who will restore the hotel. Restoration is possible, so lets put that item on the shelf. Whats next? Even some of the naysayers said they would be agreeable for restoration if the buyers had the money, and the credentials for marketing and managing the hotel after its restoration. Until now, the town has passively waited for people to come forward with their ideas; hopes are raised and then dashed, because they cant raise the money. Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported the growth of boutique hotels (10 to 100 rooms). See article here: online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB100014241278873243265045784 65240387040304. The major hotel chains also are involved in timeshare and or condotels. Check out Clearwater Beach. Its time to think about what to put in the box. The Belleview Biltmore would be a great collection of all three under one roof. In order to make this happen, somebody on the Belleair Board of Commissioners needs to take the initiative. I would recommend Commissioner Fowler. His position on saving the hotel is unambiguous. If he or other commissioners do not think that their position is adequate enough to get the attention of top officers in the big three (Marriott, Hilton or Sheraton), then ask for assistance from the governor and his office. When the next town meeting includes the Biltmore, and this is done, its a safe bet that there will be fewer Preservationists teed off. Ken Keating Belleair The super rich versus the rest of us Drivers SeatBob Driver Voil! A suitcase full of memoriesThe best yard sale Ive ever had was in the snow. In case you didnt know, in skiing terminology, a yard sale is defined as the act of a skier losing his balance and, due to the laws of centrifugal force and gravity, unintentionally falling down, causing his or her cap, sunglasses, gloves, skis and other personal belongings to scatter on the snow or beneath it. Im an expert at this. In 1992, my yard sale in the Alps in northern Italy was so spectacular that I somehow managed to lose my lift pass in the snow. Consequently, instinct took over, and I engaged in the longest Aprs-ski ever undertaken by an ugly American abroad while my friends enjoyed most of that afternoon on the slopes. That incident came to mind recently when I was thinking about selling my ski apparel, which is tucked away in a suitcase in my closet. Havent skied since 2003, in deference to the toll that acts of jockdom have taken on my body two knee surgeries and two foot surgeries. Put an end to my days of racquetball, too. However, nostalgias powerful grip may be deluding me. Could Yard Sale Germond return to the slopes? For about 10 years I took several trips to Europe with a group called Adventures on Skis. It all started in 1991 while I was an editor for the Osceola News-Gazette in Kissimmee. A co-worker, Ellen Johnston, invited me to go on a free trip to Chamonix, France. One of the people who had signed up for the trip canceled within a few days before leaving. Though she couldnt get a refund, she was allowed to transfer her reservations for the hotels and flights to another traveler. Since I was one of the few people she knew who had a passport, Ellen called me and asked if I would like to go on the trip with her husband, Bill, and her and other members of the group. I had to be at her house, which was about 30 minutes away, in an hour. I hesitated because Id never been on skis in my life, had little winter clothing and had a heavy workload that week. But my boss said, Whats keeping you from going? Youre single, and its free. Co-workers practically pushed me out the door. I ran into the bank to get my passport out of my safe deposit box. Then I went home and threw things into the suitcase. Made it to Ellens house in about an hour. They only asked that I give the woman who had to cancel her trip some small compensation. From a pay phone at a restaurant on the road, I called my dad, who told my mother, Tommy just babbled something about being on his way to France. Two days later Im taking ski We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

The Market is Rebounding! 14A Police Police beatbeing held at the Pinellas County Jail without bond.Man charged with child abuseTARPON SPRINGS Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit have arrested a Tarpon Springs man Feb. 12 for child abuse after he allegedly caused two fractures to a childs right leg because he was angry and frustrated over financial issues.According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Joshua Clifford Spencer, 22, was arrested about 3:30 p.m. at the Sheriffs Administration Building in Largo. The crime occurred at a private residence in north Pinellas. Crimes Against Children detectives began investigating the crime after a female relative of the child reported that Spencer might have hurt the 14-monthold female. The relative also reported that the suspect had also battered her. Spencer was first arrested on the evening of Feb. 10 for domestic battery and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. He was released on bond on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 8 p.m. Through further investigation into the child abuse allegations, detectives learned the childs right leg had been fractured in two locations. The relative told deputies that the suspect was angry and frustrated over financial issues and that the two had had an argument about the matter. The unnamed relative told detectives that she had left the child in Spencers care Feb. 10 and when she returned Spencer told her that something was wrong with the babys leg. The two transported the child to the hospital for treatment. Detectives continued their investigation and Spencer responded to the Sheriffs Administration Building for an interview Feb. 12. He initially told detectives that hed fallen while holding the baby and that the babys leg had become caught underneath him. Detectives said he then admitted to handling the child in a rough manner while changing her diaper, causing the fractures to the leg. He was arrested for aggravated child abuse and transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.Man dies from injuries suffered in crashPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police announced Feb. 12 that a man injured in a Feb. 7 crash at Park Boulevard and Belcher Road has died.

Matthew Cook, 56, of Pinellas Park was driving a 1998 Saturn, traveling eastbound in the center lane of Park Boulevard. Watkins lost control of his vehicle and struck a pedestrian sign and then overturned. The truck crashed into the drivers side door of Cooks Saturn. Both drivers suffered injuries that required their transport to area hospitals. Pinellas Park police were notified Feb. 11 that Cook had died as the result of his injuries.

Crossing guard badges were presented to those who had most recently finished Florida Department of Transportation certification. A length of service certificate presentation also took place during a ceremony at Elks Lodge 1525 in Dunedin. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri presented 12 length of service certificates, 30 FDOT badges, eight FDOT trainer certificates and 30 perfect attendance certificates. The PCSO School Crossing Guard Program presently has 136 crossing guards covering 187 school crossing posts for 36 elementary schools, nine middle schools and one high school in the unincorporated area as well as in the contract cities of Dunedin, Safety Harbor, Oldsmar, Seminole and Madeira Beach. The School Crossing Guard Program began in 1972 as a volunteer program. Through the years, the program has grown to meet and adhere to FDOT standards. Each school crossing guard attends a mandatory six-hour classroom training session and two-hours of field training, which is followed up with three days of field training at the guards assigned post.Feb. 22 Operation Safe Surrender set Individuals with non-violent, misdemeanor warrants can turn themselves in during Operation Safe Surrender Saturday, Feb. 22, and have their warrants resolved in a safe environment, as well as receive favorable considerations from the court. Come to the Suncoast Safety Council, 455 31st St. N., St. Petersburg, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The project is comprised of representatives from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Pinellas/Pasco State Attorney and Public Defenders Office, Clerk of Courts, and the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court. Operation Safe Surrender is not an amnesty program, but does offer favorable considerations from the court, often in the form of reduced fines, probation requirements or a new court date as an alternative to incarceration. The program allows wanted individuals to take responsibility for their actions, stop running from the law and clear their outstanding warrants. Individuals should arrive with a valid photo ID. No weapons or children are allowed. For more information, call Sgt. Bryan Bingham at 727582-6149.Man stabbed in botched drug dealPALM HARBOR A Holiday man was arrested for attempted murder in the second degree Feb. 14 after reportedly stabbing a man who sold him fake cocaine. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, James Jennings, 18, was charged with attempted murder in connection with the incident that occurred about 1:40 a.m. at an apartment in Palm Harbor. Deputies responded to a call about an individual being stabbed and rendered aid to Francisco Antonio Caraffa, 20, who had been stabbed multiple times. Bayflight arrived at the scene a short time later and took Caraffa to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that Jennings had sold Caraffa fake narcotics (cocaine) prior to the altercation. At Caraffas residence later in the evening, he confronted Jennings about the quality of his drugs. The confrontation escalated and eventually turned physical. During the brief skirmish, Caraffa thought he had only been punched, then noticed an exorbitant amount of blood on his clothing, deputies said. It turned out he had been stabbed multiple times by Jennings. A PCSO K-9 Unit tracked Jennings not far from the original scene and took him into custody without incident. Upon questioning, Jennings admitted to the confrontation but denied stabbing Caraffa. Jennings is James Jennings Joshua Clifford Spencer Photo courtesy of PCSOMembers of Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post 900 participate in a pistol competition during the Florida Association of Police Explorers Delegate training event Jan. 31-Feb. 2, hosted by the Palm Bay Police Department.

They have been learning about how inventors have used both simple and complex ideas and turned them into inventions to solve a problem or make life easier. Pictured is Bauders third-grade gifted class. Sally Burks, the gifted program teacher, transformed her classroom into a theater, with a theater curtain as a backdrop and served popcorn during presentations. First-grade through fifth-grade students researched and dressed up as the inventor of their choice, made models of the invention and presented it. Some of their favorite inventions presented included the popsicle (child inventor), ear muffs (child inventor), the Barbie doll, roller skates, the violin, the piano, the saxophone, the submarine, the ferris wheel, the Slinky, the traffic signal, and the disposable diaper. Burks also enjoyed dressing up and acting as a different inventor each day.Inventors & InventionsOsceolas Future Business Leaders of America team.SEMINOLE On Jan. 29, Osceola Fundamental High Schools Future Business Leaders of America attended the FBLA District Conference at the First Presbyterian Church in St. Petersburg Members of Osceolas FBLA chapter competed in a variety of different competitive events.

PETERSBURG Former NAACP president and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous will address faculty, staff, students and members of the public Thursday, Feb. 20, 7:30 p.m., in Fox Hall at Eckerd College, 4200 54th Ave. S. Sponsored by the colleges Afro-American Society and the office of multicultural affairs, Jealous will present That One Big Thing, in which he will identify the simple steps that can accelerate anyone toward achieving feats of great social transformation and service. This event, in observance of Black History Month, is free and open to the public and is part of Eckerds Presidential Events Series. The youngest president in the history of the NAACP, Jealous began his career at age 18 opening mail at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Since then, Jealous has been a leader of successful state and local movements to ban the death penalty, outlaw racial profiling, defend voting rights and secure marriage equality. Under his leadership, the NAACP grew to be the largest civil rights organization online and on mobile, experienced its first multi-year membership growth in 20 years, and became the largest community-based nonpartisan voter registration operation in the country. Jealous stepped down as NAACP president at the end of 2013. Prior to leading the NAACP, he spent 15 years serving as a journalist and community organizer. While at Mississippis Jackson Advocate Newspaper, his investigations were credited with exposing corruption at the state penitentiary at Parchman and proving the innocence of a black farmer who was being framed for arson. While at Amnesty International, he led successful efforts to outlaw prison rape, expose the increasing trend of children being sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, and draw attention to expanded racial profiling in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. When he was still a college student, Jealous helped lead a successful campaign to stop the governor of Mississippi from turning a public historically black university into a prison. A Rhodes Scholar, he is a graduate of Columbia and Oxford universities. He has been named to the 40 under 40 lists of both Forbes and Time magazines, and labeled a Young Global Economic Leader by the World Economic Forum. He is No. 1 on TheRoot.coms 2013 list of black leaders under 45. Jealous lives in Maryland with his wife and two children.

16A Real Estate Seminole Beacon, February 20, 2014 About 1.2 million U.S. adults suffer from lumbar spinal stenosis, a condition in which the spinal canal narrows putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, causing back and leg pain. Conventional surgery for this condition involves the permanent fusion of spine bones and joints, stabilizing the spine. Although effective, fusion may eliminate the natural range of motion between these bones, possibly leading to further spine degeneration. Largo Medical Center is participating in a clinical trial that may redefine the surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis. The study focuses on a new concept in spine surgery called facet joint replacement. The clinical trial is evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational device called the ACADIAFacet Replacement System. Scott Webb, DO, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, is part of a select group throughout the U.S. taking part in this landmark study. The study is open to both male and female patients between the ages of 21 and 85 who have been diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis and have had at least 6 months of conservative care; injections, medication, physical therapy, etc. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Rose A.

For Larry Smart, 44, of Tampa it could be because he wins the race more often than not. Smart first entered the race two years ago and finished first overall. If the race is getting better with age, then so is Smart. Back then he won the race with a time of 16:52. His personal best at the time was 16:30 so he was disappointed with his winning time. He blamed it on the heat; the temperature at race time in 2012 was well over 70 degrees. On Feb. 15 the race time temperature was barely 60 degrees and it showed. Smart won again, this time with a time if 16:25 and once again he credited the weather with the result. It was a nice cool evening, great for running, he said. The course is great but there is a little incline toward the end that sort of takes it out of you. However Im happy with the way things turned out. Smart also was happy with the entire event and he perhaps was able to answer some of the questions as to why runners keep coming back to Belleair. It really has to do with the course mostly, he said. This is a beautiful area, it is a very pleasant run and of course the afterparty is the best one around. Smart missed last years race because he was out of town but says he intends to come back again next year if he can. The first place womens finisher in the race was Kristen Tenaglia of Seminole. She finished with a time of 17:51. That wasnt bad, Ive done better but it was pretty good, she said, I havent raced for a while but I had another girl pushing me all the way. Tenaglia, who has entered the Sunset 5K three or four other times, echoed Smarts comments about why she keeps coming back. Belleair is a beautiful city,Previous winner sets the pace again in Belleair race Photos by BRIAN GOFFAbove, Larry Smart, 44, of Tampa won the Belleair Sunset 5K race. Below, Seminoles Kristen Tenaglia was the first woman finisher. Here she crosses the finish line.she said. It is a good course with lovely scenery and a great party afterwards. It makes for a fun race. Tenaglia, 25, said she used the Sunset 5K as a warm up for the Gasparilla Race in Tampa, which is coming up Feb. 22. She also warms up by running more than 10 miles every day. Belleairs newly appointed director of special events, Danielle Felten, said she was pleased with the whole event. I was a little worried that something might go wrong, she said. But everything went as planned and when something did need a little tweaking the people assigned to the task did their jobs perfectly. The now renowned after-party takes place on the sports field adjacent to the Dimmitt Community Center. All those who paid the entry fee for the race get to attend the all-you-can eat, all-you-can drink free party. It is likely every one of the 1,000 runners registered would list the party as a main reason why they attend. Felten said already plans are underway for next years Sunset 5K, which will be the 13th annual. hats are set to gather at the Largo Community Center, 400 Alt. Keene Road, for the annual Red Hat Tea Party Tuesday, March 11 or Wednesday, March 12, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Red Hatters will enjoy live music, dancing, door prizes, contests, vendor shopping and a lunch freshly prepared by the Largo Community Center.

Therese (Elizabeth Olsen) is a ravishing but sexually repressed young woman trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin Camille (Tom Felton) by her domineering aunt Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange). Now, Therese must spend her days as a virtual shut-in, confined behind the counter of a small shop by day and watching Madame play dominos in the evening. But when she meets her husbands alluring childhood friend, Laurent (Oscar Isaac), everything changes. What begins as a thrillingly illicit, clandestine affair will unravel into a shocking set of tragic circumstances for everyone.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

According to a press release from the Mitch Schneider Organization, the artists publicist, Mason plans to release a new EP titled Futures Past in 2014. The EP will feature new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. The EP will be available online at www.davemasonmusic.com and at Masons live shows. Renowned for such Traffic hits as Feelin Alright and Hole In My Shoe, plus his solo signature tracks We Just Disagree and Only You Know and I Know, Mason is excited to perform the music of Traffic. I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music, Mason said in a press release. And Traffic Jam aside from the obvious material will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive. CLEARWATER Audiences will have an opportunity to take a journey back to the greatest days of rock with Dave Masons sight and sound experience, Traffic Jam. Dave Masons Traffic Jam will take a detour into the Tampa Bay area Friday, Feb. 21, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets start at $49. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter and legendary guitarist has been making music since the age of 18 when he teamed up with fellow British native Steve Winwood to form the band Traffic. Since then he has penned dozens of hits such as Feelin Alright and We Just Disagree. He has been linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot. Mason has been performing to sold-out audiences for years and has sold millions of recordings worldwide. Masons solo studio albums include Alone Together (1970), Dave Mason & Cass Elliot (1971), Headkeeper (1972), Its Like You Never Left (1973), Dave Mason (1974), Split Coconut (1975), Let It Flow (1977), Mariposa De Oro (1978), Old Crest on a New Wave (1980), Two Hearts (1987), Some Assembly Required (1987) and Letters 12 Notes (2008). Prior to his solo career, Masons involvement with Traffic resulted in the studio albums Mr. Fantasy (1967), Traffic (1968) and Last Exit (1969), as well as the live album Welcome to the Canteen (1971). In 2014, Mason is on the road with an exciting new project billed as Dave Masons Traffic Jam. The tour kicked off Jan. 3 in Atlantic City, N.J., and will continue through the rest of the year. The Traffic Jam concert will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967s Mr. Fantasy and 1968s Traffic albums andDave Mason, a Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter and legendary guitarist, has been making music since the age of 18.

PETERSBURG American Stage Theatre Company recently announced its 2014-15 season for its six main stage productions, the 30th anniversary of American Stage in the Park and a bonus production that will be a Florida premiere. American Stage offers an unforgettable theatrical journey with one Florida premiere, four area premieres, two Tony Award-winning plays, two musicals, its eighth installment of the August Wilsons Century Cycle, a Neil Simon classic and a farce by Lewis Black. This year I was interested in stories that provided social bridges to experiences and inside stories far from our own, said Todd Olson in a press release. Olson is artistic director at American Stage. The season will open with The Chosen, written by the creators of last years hit My Name is Asher Lev, and is followed by Nureyevs Eyes, a bonus production and a Florida premiere produced in conjunction with Rudolf Nureyev by James Wyeth: Images of the Dancer from the Brandywine River Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. During the holidays, American Stage will present Neil Simons Laughter on the 23rd Floor. Kicking off the new year will be the eighth installment in the August Wilsons Century Cycle, Radio Golf, followed by the hilarious musical comedy Gutenberg! The Musical! starring Matthew McGee and Chris Crawford. In celebration of the 30th anniversary with American Stage in the Park, the company will take to the outdoors with the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical and Pulitzer finalist In the Heights. The summer of 2015 will see the play that won the Tony for Best Play, Red, and the regional premiere of comedian Lewis Blacks farce One Slight Hitch. American Stage Theatre Company presents its main stage productions in the Raymond James Theatre, 163 Third St. N., St. Petersburg. To purchase tickets or main stage subscription packages, call 8237529 or visit www.americanstage .org. Following is a summary of the 2014-15 season at American Stage Theatre. The Chosen, adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok, from the novel by Chaim Potok; previews Sept. 3-4; runs Sept. 5-28. It is 1944 set in Brooklyn, and two Jewish boys grow up five blocks and a world apart. A standing-room-only hit wherever it has played, this award-winning adaptation (from the award-winning novel) is by the same creators of last years hit My Name Is Asher Lev. The play begins when Reuven and Danny play a heated game of baseball between rival yeshivas until one is badly hurt. As their unique friendship grows, they learn important lessons about their fathers, their community, and themselves. Nureyevs Eyes, by David Rush; previews Oct. 15-16; runs Oct. 17-26. The play will be produced in conjunction with Rudolf Nureyev by James Wyeth: Images of the Dancer from the Brandywine River Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. An inside story about two masters an American painter and a Russian ballet dancer and how they created a now famous set of paintings. During the 1970s, the American painter Jamie Wyeth (son of Andrew) did a series of studies and paintings of Rudolf Nureyev, the legendary ballet dancer who defected from Russia and revitalized western ballet. Written with the express permission and support of Jamie Wyeth, this brand new play by David Rush imagines what their electric encounters may have been like, what secrets were revealed about the world of painting and international dance, and how their relationship evolved changing each of them. Laughter on the 23rd Floor, by Neil Simon; previews Nov. 19-20; runs Nov. 21 through Dec. 14. Get an inside look at the writers room with Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, Neil Simon, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, and other legends of early TV. Inspired by Neil Simons youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesars Your Show of Shows, the show features all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman. Radio Golf, by August Wilson; previews Jan. 21-22; runs Jan. 23 through Feb. 22, 2015. The production will be the eighth installment in American Stage Theatres August Wilson Century Cycle. Harmond Wilks is a real estate developer poised to become Pittsburghs first African-American Mayor. He is also on the verge of clinching a lucrative land deal: if the government declares the Hill District as blighted including Aunt Esthers house on 1839 Wylie a lot of federal money will be made available to Harmond and his partners. But as he steps into political prominence, his plans collide with his past, and August Wilsons 10th play shows how, in the rush to progress, the past is never too far behind. Gutenberg! The Musical!, by Scott Brown and Anthony King; starring Matthew McGee and Chris Crawford; previews March 11-12; runs March 13 through April 5, 2015. In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers audition for their new project a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract fulfilling their ill-advised dreams. In the Heights, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and book by Pulitzer-winner Quiara Alegra Hudes; previews April 22-23; runs April 24 through May 17, 2015. In the Heights is Broadways Tony Award-winning Best Musical about chasing dreams and finding a true home. This exhilarating musical tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New Yorks Washington Heights neighborhood a place where the coffee from the corner coffee shop is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Its a community on the brink of change, full of hopes and dreams where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. With a gripping story and incredible music and dance, In the Heights is a groundbreaking 21st century musical and the next chapter in the classic American story. Red, by John Logan; previews May 27-28; runs May 29 through June 21, 2015. Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New Yorks famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant in his studio on the Bowery. But when the student gains the confidence to challenge the master, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, RED is the inside story of an artists ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. One Slight Hitch, by Lewis Black; previews July 8-9; runs July 10 through Aug. 2, 2015. Its Courtneys wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce, the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect.American Stage Theatre Company is a not-for-profit professional theater founded in 1977. The companys mission is to create the most satisfying live theatre in the Tampa Bay area, accessible to all members of the community.

The Warhawks started slow, falling behind 11-0, but took a 21-19 lead into the locker room at the half. Seminole built a 12point lead in the third quarter, but North Port wasnt finished playing yet. With 30 seconds left in the game North Ports Malek Barber hit a three-pointer to tie the game at 57-57. It looked as though the Bobcats may mount a comeback, but Frain hit a three-pointer with just over three seconds left on the clock to give Seminole the win 60-57.

Page 1B.Pompeii, Days to Kill, Barefoot to open this weekend Council sets stormwater drainage standard By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council approved a resolution to establish a Stormwater Level of Service standard for public drainage facilities at its Feb. 11 meeting. It is important that we do establish a level of service as we move forward with drainage issues and drainage concerns, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. The city hired Tampa Bay Engineering to study its drainage facilities and to create a Master Drainage Plan. TBEs plan is based on a 25-year/24-hour storm event (with approximately 9 inches falling in a 24-hour event). The plan utilized an A through F grading system, which was used to identify current drainage service levels. TBE then recommended adopting a Level of Service D, which provides the most cost-effective approach for adequate drainage protection. In other action items, the council also: approved a $1,200-contract for Roadtrip Productions to sound and lighting for the 201 Pow Wow Festival. We have had some experience with this particular vendor, Edmunds said. Its the low-cost proposal to provide such services. Roadtrip Productions has provided similar services for preview Pow Wow events and the Music in the Park series. authorized a $500 donation to be given to Cross Bayou Little League. The council gave Cross Bayou a similar donation last year and intended it to be a one-time donation. So it wasnt written into the budget this year, Edmunds said. But theyve suffered a lot as a result of vandalism since last year and are seeking some funding to bring it back up to its prior status and condition, he said. Though located in an unincorporated part of the county, Cross Bayou attracts some players who are Seminole residents living east of Seminole Boulevard. appointed Phyllis Schaefer to the Tree Advisory Committee.Girl Scouts to honor Mayor Leslie WatersTAMPA The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida will honor Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters as one of its 2014 Women of Distinction at a luncheon Tuesday, March 18, at Tampas A La Carte Event Pavilion.

Pinellas County residents asked to conserve water By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County asked residents to conserve water for 10 days, Feb. 18-28 while workers install a new meter at the Keller pump station located off Keystone Road in Tarpon Springs. Its a complex construction. Welders will be working around the clock, said Kevin Becotte, plant operations manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructures Water and Sewer Division. The work is part of two major construction projects designed to help stabilize pressure and improve the quality of the countys drinking water supply. Pinellas County is collaborating with Tampa Bay Water. Plans for the work began in 2011. The first project is replacement of the Keller pump station, which is more than 50 years old. The second is installation of a half-mile pipeline where water from Tampa Bay Water and Eldridge-Wilde wellfields will be blended before entering the countys system. Currently, workers are installing a new meter on a 66inch pipeline. To do the job, Utilities had to shut off the main pipeline. A temporary pipe is carrying the load, but its a smaller diameter pipe, meaning it cant deliver as Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY UTILITIESThe 50-year-old Keller Pump Station located in Brooker Creek Preserve in Tarpon Springs is being replaced by a new, modern pump station part of a two-phase project to improve water delivery and quality to Pinellas County.many gallons of water per day. To make up the difference and keep the water flowing, the city of St. Petersburg will supplement the water coming from the Eldridge-Wilde wellfields and Tampa Bay Waters regional supply. The EldridgeWilde property, located in Pinellas but owned by Tampa Bay Water, has about 24 wells that pump into the water supply system. Becotte doesnt anticipate any problems while the meter is being installed. Still, water conservation by the public would help ensure there was enough water for everyone over the 10 days. He asked that people delay activities that would require large quantities of water, such as refilling swimming pools or pressure cleaning. People also are asked to refrain from lawn watering, car washing, installing new sod/landscaping and operating fountains. Becotte pointed out that conservation in daily use, such as not leaving the water running while brushing teeth, shaving, washing dishes and reducing See WATER, page 4ACOMMUNITYLarry Smart wins Sunset 5K raceThere is something about Belleair and the annual Sunset 5K race that brings runners back year after year.

Well be OK. Utilities had scheduled to do the work two week ago, but due to faulty equipment a valve that would not shut properly installation of the new meter was delayed. Becotte said the operation was well planned. He described the collaborative effort between the county, Tampa Bay Water, the contractor and engineer throughout the construction process as fantastic. The whole project will benefit Pinellas County, he said. The new pump station is more efficient. It will use less electricity. The water quality will be better. In addition, maintenance cost will be less for the station due to availability of parts. The old pump station is over 50 years old. We were fabricating replacement parts because they dont make them anymore, Becotte said. Utilities has contingency plans in place just in case something goes wrong with the current project. But we want to let everyone know this is happening so they can help with conservation. We want to keep the public informed, he said. Well know if the project is successful if people say they didnt notice a difference at all.

A ballot question is scheduled to appear on the Nov. 4 ballot, asking voters to approve allowing physician-supervised use of cannabis. Bills filed in the House and Senate of the Florida Legislature Feb. 10, call for legalization of controlled use of medical marijuana. Pinellas County Commission Norm Roche, who serves on the Public Safety Coordinating Council, brought the subject up during the Feb. 11 commission meeting. He said the coordinating council was looking at what county ordinances might be affected if medical marijuana was legalized. Its a very fascinating discussion, Roche said. Pinellas County Commissioner Ken Welch asked about the paraphernalia ordinance enacted when he was chair in 2006. Roche said it was among those being considered. He said the sheriffs office also was looking at what county laws legalization might affect. Welch pointed out that if medical marijuana were legalized, an education campaign likely would be required to inform the public that not all marijuana use was legal.Push for legalizationUnited for Care is the backer of the constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana. The Florida Division of Elections confirmed that enough signatures had been validated to put the measure on the November ballot and the state Supreme Court approved the ballot language in January. The Florida Division of Elections reports that Pinellas County residents accounted for 76,787 of the 786,368 valid signatures favoring placing an amendment on the ballot. According to the nonprofit lobbying organization Norml, the amendment would allow doctors to recommend cannabis therapy to their patients and authorize the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes. To pass, the amendment needs 60 percent approval by voters. House Bill 859 and Senate Bill 962 also would allow the use of medical marijuana in Florida. The Senate Bill, titled the Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act, which failed in 2013, is xnamed after a Manatee County woman suffering from Lou Gehrigs disease. Jordan has used marijuana for medicinal purposes for more than a decade. Authorities raided her home Feb. 15, 2013 and seized marijuana plants being grown by her husband. The couple argued that the plants were used to treat her medical condition. Eventually, the Manatee County State Attorneys Office dropped charges against the couple. Tampa Senator Jeff Clemens took up the cause, filing a bill in 2013 and 2014. Clemens bill calls for the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to regulate the industry and be responsible for licensing and permitting of dispensaries and farms.OpponentsOpponents of legalizing medical marijuana, including state Attorney General Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott, argue that marijuana is illegal according to federal law. Bondi filed a motion with the state Supreme Court in January trying to keep the constitutional amendment off the ballot. She argued that the ballot title and summary was misleading. The Supreme Court subsequently approved the ballot title, Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions, and the summary, which says, Allows the medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating diseases as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not authorize violations of federal law or any nonmedical use, possession or production of marijuana.ProponentsUnited for Care says on its website that marijuana is currently legal as medicine in 20 states and the District of Columbia. Information on the homepage states that marijuana has been shown to be an effective treatment for the symptoms and side effects associated with HIV/AIDS, cancer, hepatitis C, PTSD, MS and other neuromuscular disorders, glaucoma, and chronic pain. The American College of Physicians, American Public Health Association, American Nurses Association, and many other associations and organizations support the availability of medicinal marijuana. The Witchs Brew Caf and Pub, 1219 Florida Ave. in Palm Harbor, is offering a monthly educational series on the subject of Hemp and Cannabis starting Tuesday, March 11, 6:30 p.m. The eightmonth series scheduled on second and fourth Tuesdays continues through October.

Pinellas commissioners amend procurement policies By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners said yes to amendments to the purchasing code Feb. 11 that change approval authority and eliminate the commissioners approval of vendor rankings. The amendments were the result of work by the Contract Administration Review Team, which has been meeting since December 2012. CART was given several goals, including improving the efficiencies in the contract administration process while maintaining internal controls and accountability for staff and the parties that contract with the county, according to a staff report. The deliverables supporting his effort include establishing enterprise contract administration guiding principles; revising ordinances, policies and procedures to increase efficiencies; creating a contract administration manual; and establishing staff training program, the report said. Assistant County Attorney Dennis Long and Purchasing Director Joe Lauro provided CARTs recommendations to the commission Oct. 29, 2013. After receiving the commissions input, some recommendations were modified. A Feb. 11 public hearing was scheduled to discuss the final recommendations and approve the amendments. One amendment gives the county administrator the authority to approve change orders not exceeding 10 percent of the amount awarded by the commission or $250,000, whichever is less. Staff said the modification would greatly expedite contract closeouts and provide improved efficiency to many contract change orders that now require Board approval. The amendment also updated language to reflect current business process. It also eliminates the requirement that all contracts/instruments be filed with the Clerk of the Court. The county is working on an electronic contracts repository and automated agenda process. Contracts will continue to be filed with the Clerks office until the electronics repository is established. CART also revised most of the code governing bidder suspension and debarment so that non-performing firms could be penalized for poor performance in a more expedient and effective manner, staff said. Suspensions shall be based on documented contracting issues, such as breach of contract, vendor misrepresentation, criminal offense, fraud and conviction of a public entity crime, the report said. Long, who was attending his last commission meeting in an official capacity before his retirement, said CART had identified more serious code violations when considering reasons for a suspension. He also said the action had to relate to the vendors business, not a personal violation. He gave an example of someone being cited for a lawn watering violation, which he said would not count. Code outlining the vendors protest procedure was clarified to remove sections open to interpretation. Code governing the competitive sealed bidding process now clarifies that the county administrator can reject all bids or portions of bids. Another amendment adds advisory board members to the section of code on lobbying. Current code does not require the commission to approve rankings of firms or authorize staff to negotiate on contracts before final approval; however, historically, rankings have come to the commission as part of the process. Staff said obtaining approval on the ranking of firms conservatively adds four to six weeks to the contracting process. CART recommended eliminating commission approval except for operating agreement for the Waste to Energy Plant, Emergency Medical Services Transport and other contracts as necessary and required. The commission agreed. CART also recommended revising several longstanding procedures, which were not part of the code, but have a direct impact on the contracting process. Changes were made to the contract review process and master contract boilerplates. CART will continue its work and provide future recommendations as needed to improve the contracting process. Commissioner Norm Roche questioned how the commission would track the process of contracts in the system. Commissioner Janet Long also wanted to be informed, especially on contract extensions, so commissioners could respond to complaints from the public. County Administrator Bob LaSala said a quarterly report could be prepared. This releases some of authority of the board, Roche said. I just want to be able to monitor. Commission Chair Karen Seel thanked Attorney Long for his service. Youre a brilliant lawyer with a wicked sense of humor, she said. In other business, the commission: Unanimously approved a minor plan change for Largos West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment Plan Special Area Plan. The change allows the city to include language to provide economic and non-economic incentives for development and job creation. Scheduled a public hearing on March 18 on Business Technology funds for the Justice Consolidated Case Management System project. Adjourned to the conference room and away from the television cameras to discuss board, council and committee appointments, as well as Vision Tourism 2025. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel explains why she could not support one of the amendments that changes approval authority. Seel recalled issues with construction on U.S. 19 and the problems caused with project extensions. Visit www.TBNweekly.com

But we too have our winters. We can only go boating about half the time during the winter months as during the summer months. Curiously, our local dolphins seem to have a similar schedule. If you are boating along our local stretch of Intracoastal Waterway this month, you might see local bottlenose dolphins. Then again, you might not. On average, they are here about half as often in the winter as they are in the summer. That average arises from the combination of great sightings and poor sightings. You can see as many dolphins on some winter days as you would see on steamy summer days. On other winter days, you might not see any dolphins. The primary reason is that bottlenose dolphins show a type of mini-migration almost regardless of the habitat in which they live. Their migrations are modest: They tend to move between different bodies of water in summer and in winter. Those who spend their summers in large bodies of water migrate into small bodies of water for the winter, and vice versa. Locally, the dolphins that inhabit the Intracoastal Waterway during the summer tend to inhabit the Gulf of Mexico during the winter. Likewise, dolphins that we do not see in the Intracoastal Waterway all summer reappear during the winter. These strident individualists are dolphin teens. Dolphin teens are the product of a small but critical maritime assembly line that produces a handful of treasured teens each year. It starts in the summer when some of the females that belong to the Johns Pass dolphin community give birth. Their previous calf must fledge in the process called weaning but has the option of leaving home right away or taking its time. Some leave as soon as the new sibling is born. Ousted older calves that take their time usually do not stay in the same social group as their mom and new sibling but stay in their vicinity, often just a bay away. Less often, the older calf continues to swim with its mom and new sibling in the same group. It varies by individual. On average, calves take two to four months to begin appearing with age-mates. Thus, most have made the jump by Christmas. That is why the dolphins you find in winter waters are particularly likely to be small intense gatherings of sleek gray individuals that are bigger than calves but smaller than adults. They are easily recognized by their signature spouts of energy, at one moment gushing around a boat in a bid to surf its wake and the next bursting with bright curiosity about whatever is happening 50 yards away. Because of their restlessness, it is hard to get a close look at them. If you could, you would see that, like Qballs picture, they have clean coats and few scars. This will change steadily for most of the males. This year, the little local assembly line only produced one treasured teen, Qball, although there were five calves born to local moms. One of the moms, Sharkey, was a first-time mom this year. She did not have a previous calf that turned into a teen when she gave birth to young Echo. The other four moms had previous calves. One of the moms, Stick, had Savannah in 2011. He was a lively sturdy kid that showed some striking adult behaviors. But he disappeared in 2012, as did most of the other calves that were born in 2011. We have no explanation for this dark outcome, only disturbing ideas. That left three older calves to turn into teens. Two were little boys Juno and Fugazi. Like other young males we know, they did not wait for their moms to give birth again, instead striking out together on their own last year. Interestingly, even though they weaned without the impetus of a new baby sibling, we found them in the general vicinity of their moms J and Front Slash for many months. It was perhaps a maritime counterpart to moving out of your parents house but moving into the room over their garage. That left one more: Qball. May she experience only the best adventures of dolphin adulthood.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Its still a bit early to think were out of this current weather pattern, but even one skip in the cold front rotation has to be taken as a good sign. While the rest of the country couldnt even imagine getting some fishing in over this past weekend we were fortunate enough to get a break in the weather. With water temperatures still holding around 60 degrees, fishing still much remains a hit or miss affair. Inshore, redfish have been a reliable target on this recent full moon phase. Afternoon high tides have proven to be best, as the water has had plenty of time to warm throughout the morning hours. Mullet schools that seem nonexistent on the lower water have been coming together on the higher tides. Drifting through the schools of mullet while fan casting scented soft-plastic jigs has been producing quality sized redfish as well as the occasional big trout. For more consistent trout action, target spoil islands throughout the northern part of our region. Free-lining select shrimp on the hard part of the incoming tide typically on the north side of the islands has been producing steady action for trout ranging in size from 16 to 20 inches with plenty of larger fish mixed in. Offshore weve seen a big influx of mangrove snapper on during this recent full moon. Targeting ledges and artificial reefs in 30 to 50 feet water will put you in the right spot. Sending down a chum basket full of frozen shrimp will draw in a variety of fish when the current is moving. Fish with a live shrimp and a lightweight, on the same sized rod you would use for redfish.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wellerstein Biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported a preliminary count of 4,831 manatees in Florida during this years statewide aerial survey, conducted in late January. A team of 20 observers from nine organizations counted 2,317 manatees on Floridas east coast and 2,514 on the west coast of the state. This years manatee count is the third highest we have recorded since the first statewide aerial survey in 1991, said Gil McRae, director of the FWCs Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. We are encouraged by the relatively high count, especially given the high number of manatee deaths documented recently. Information on warm-water habitat use from this years survey will be integrated with manatee survival and reproductive rates to update future population projections. The goal of the aerial manatee survey is to count as many manatees as possible, providing researchers with a minimum number for manatees in Florida waters and a snapshot of where they are at the time of the survey. Weather conditions and manatee behavior during the survey have a large effect on survey counts. Because these factors vary from year to year, this count cannot be used to determine long-term population trends. After two winters of above-average temperatures, this year we received several consecutive, strong cold fronts that helped to gather manatees at warm-water sites where they could be more easily counted, said FWC manatee biologist Holly Edwards. The surveys highlight the importance of warm-water habitat to manatees in the winter, increasing researchers understanding of manatee distribution and relative use of these areas that are essential to manatee health and survival. The survey information helps managers better protect this endangered species. Researchers have been conducting statewide aerial surveys since 1991, weather permitting, to meet the states requirement for an annual count of manatees in Florida waters. Statewide aerial surveys were not conducted during the winters of 2012 and 2013 due to warm-weather conditions. Florida residents can help manatees by purchasing a manatee specialty license plate and a manatee decal. Funds from the license plate and decal support manatee research and conservation. Go to BuyaPlate.com to learn more about the license plate and MyFWC.com/ManateeSeaTurtleDecals to purchase a decal. Both items are available at county tax collectors offices.

TORRESLARGO The Feb. 6 meeting of the Starkey Parkies, a support group for those dealing with Parkinsons disease, began with a vocal exercise, not unlike ones professional actors and singers use to warm up, explained facilitator Ken Fradain. The circle repeated tricky syllables and complicated tongue twisters, each doing their best to enunciate and project the sounds. Speaking clearly and loudly is just one of the challenges those suffering from Parkinsons disease can face on a daily basis. Fortunately for me, I have not been affected that way yet, said Fradain, who acted as group facilitator for the first time that meeting. (For) some folks, the Parkinsons disease affects the muscles in their throats and causes problems with swallowing, and sometimes they cant speak loud enough. The Starkey Parkies is a grassroots group that meets at the Grand Villa on Starkey Road to provide a welcoming atmosphere of support, explained group leader Theo Betjemann. Many of the attendees came with a spouse or partner in their fight against the disease. One caregiver invited the group to the funeral for her mother, who had recently passed away of the disease. Aside from moral support, the monthly meetings are a forum to share exercises to forestall the effects of the disease, the latest medical tips and developments and stories that inspire each other to continue fighting. People need this kind of group, said Maria Portes of Largo, who has fought against the disease for almost 14 years. Honestly, its a very hard disease. I wish people would get educated about it. Portes was one of the initial organizers of the group, which first met in November. The organizers have been pleased by the positive response the group has had, evidenced even by the attendance of that first meeting. We got so many people. We couldnt believe it. It was overwhelming, Portes said. The original facilitator of the group, Marcy McCall, an author of a book on the disease, had to step down due to an unrelated illness. But the area set aside for the group at the Grand Villa was still filled with attendees during its most recent meeting. Portes said many people who dont experience Parkinsons disease firsthand still have a narrow view of it. They come to something like this (and) they think theyre going to see a room full of people shaking, but thats not what it is about, she said. The stiffness is my major complaint. Its hard. At my stage now, I have a lot of trouble walking sometimes. Even members of her own family dont completely understand. Once, when Portes was visiting with family about six months ago, she began to leave the room and found herself stopped. All of a sudden, I just couldnt walk. I just froze there, she said. Her brother asked her what was wrong. I said, Nothing Im frozen. He said, Why dont you put a sweater on? I was cracking up, Portes said. My brother, you have to get a little bit more educated about Parkinsons. The biggest challenge is how unpredictable the disease can be, she said. The medication sometimes just doesnt work as well as it should. I can be feeling fine now and 10 minutes from now, Ill be a mess, Portes said. Everybody always says, You look so good, but they dont know what we walk through. You have to walk in other peoples shoes. On the other side of the room, Bill Ohsa of Largo carried refreshments back to his seat and suddenly couldnt stop his hand from spilling the plastic cup of red juice. I get shaking and I cant stop, the retired construction worker explained as he recovered and began mopping up the floor. Arlene Dawson, sitting nearby, was unfazed by the spill. She lives at the Grand Villa, having given up her doublewide trailer in Clearwater, along with her independence, about three years ago, shortly after being diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. The ongoing fellowship and the information the group provides is important, she said. Her priority now is to make sure her brother, who lives in Ohio and was diagnosed with the disease before she was, also has a support group he can rely on. The ease and understanding that comes with socializing with others familiar with Parkinsons is key, explained Patty Nuytten of Largo, another organizer of the Starkey Parkies. You can get very isolated with Parkinsons. My voice is particularly affected, so I dont talk much on the phone. And its just hard to coordinate things, she said. You find yourself pretty much just staying at home if you dont do something like this. There tend to be two types of the disease. Nuytten is more affected by the stiff, rigid side of Parkinsons, as opposed to the shaky kind of Parkinsons, she said. She agreed that sudden onset of symptoms makes the disease particularly challenging. One minute, you could be fine and five minutes later, you can barely walk across the room, she said. During a socialization break, Anneliese Tedeschi of Pinellas Park sought out fellow group member Mike Mugharbel of Seminole. I noticed he walks without the walker now, she explained. Tedeschi had a fall recently and broke her neck. She has healed enough to no longer need the halo brace, but hasnt fully recovered. Now I cant get out of the wheelchair, she said. Since he got rid of his walker, I was trying to find out (how). Mugharbel said he tackled various kinds of exercise on his own to regain his mobility. Im proud of it, he said. You look like youre doing very well, Tedeschi commented. Staying active is particularly challenging to those suffering from Parkinsons, but its key to forestalling the progression of the disease, group moderators emphasized. In fact, the Feb. 6 meeting included a yoga demonstration designed to enhance mobility and stretch tense muscles. Bob Etchells of Largo said hikes and biking were his primary form of exercise. Im not sure how safe that is, he said with a smile, explaining that the other bikers on the Pinellas Trail move a bit faster than he does. Etchells, a retired computer engineer, said the camaraderie and awareness of the latest developments in Parkinsons made the Starkey Parkies group useful. Hes also discovered a better doctor through recommendations of its members. Its inspiring, said Robin Hirschberg, who is relatively new to the supportive community, having only been diagnosed with Parkinsons in October. The members of the group are sometimes more knowledgeable about the disease than his own neurologist, Hirschberg said. Another attendee, who did not want to give his name, agreed: those who suffer from Parkinsons are able to recognize its symptoms in others, often before doctors do. Aside from encouraging its members, the group hopes to raise general awareness of the disease, said Betjemann. Parkies can continue to live a meaningful life through personal awareness, improved self-care, socialization and various therapies, she explained. All of this becomes worthy of celebration when, through support of each other and the acceptance and embrace by the mainstream community, we are able to create victories over daily challenges created by the disease. The group ended with a vocal exercise. As a group, the Starkey Parkies voiced healthy affirmations aloud. My intention is to maintain health and wellness for myself, they said together. I am grateful for the health I have now. Opportunities to reverse any and all symptoms always come my way. The group meets first Thursdays, 1:30 p.m., at the Grand Villa, 750 Starkey Road in Largo.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerBe Your Own Best Advocate.Many seniors today live alone in their communities as their children live and work in other areas. Although the children may visit often, typically they are not present when it comes time for mom or dads doctors visits or other appointments they attend for their well being. One of the most difficult things for patients, is knowing how to ask questions of a doctor. You owe it to yourself to ask these questions, especially when it comes to prescribed medications. Take a list of your current medications and vitamin intake along with you. It is important to review each drug recommended and learn of all the side effects that are a possibility. Because time is limited it is important to make a list of any questions you have pertaining to your health so you are sure to get your answers before walking out the door. Jot down the answers if you fear you may not remember them. Invite a friend or caregiver you trust to go along with you for support. This person does not need to speak for you but their presence may ensure that someone is caring for you. This relative or friend can help you remember the key points made by your doctor.If you're not sure you understand what is happening, ask questions until you feel comfortable. It is important to know all of your options when diagnosed with a problem. If tests are recommended, be sure to ask what they entail so you are comfortable if you choose to go forward with them. Learn if there are side effects to these tests. It is quite normal to feel worried about speaking frankly with your doctor, but your doctor will be able to be more sensitive to your needs if you inform him of your concerns. He or she is there to help you with all of your medical concerns. It is important to be assertive and to gather all the knowledge you can regarding your health. Communicate openly in your effort to receive the right health care. Advocate with confidence for you!022014 3233 East Bay Drive, Suite 102, Largo, FL 33771We are a debt relief agency.

In December, Bondi announced a settlement with DADATA Inc. and others resolving allegations that they charged customers telephone bills for voicemail, e-fax and other services without the customers consent. The agreement requires the companies to refund all charges billed since July 1, 2009 to eligible Florida customers who did not consent to the service for which they were charged. Refunds may total approximately $2.3 million depending on the number of claims made. Individual refund checks are estimated to average $134, and they may be as high as $700. Claim forms must be submitted by April 12. Additionally, claim forms may be printed out for mailing, or the form may be completed and submitted online. Customers who previously received some credit or a refund may be eligible to file a claim for additional money. An independent claims administrator is handling the process.

13A Seminole Beacon, February 20, 2014I keep hearing about the war between the richest 1 percent of Americans and the other 99 percent of people. Tom Perkins, a Silicon Valley billionaire, recently published a letter in the Wall Street Journal. In it he compared todays vilification of Americas moguls with the Nazi persecution of Jews. He may have overstated his concern, but I think hes correct in assuming that todays War on the Wealthy does exist. I dont know much about economics, but Im able to ask questions. Following are a few that strike my mind on a Tuesday unshaven morning with a cup of coffee beside me and another 10-degree F. New England air mass hovering outside my window. How would or will I know when I reach the super-rich level? Has someone defined exactly how much wealth a person must have before he/she can be hated by the rest of us? Wed better find out, because one day there may come a knock on the door. An ominous voice will say, The latest figures are in. They show that you have crossed the line into SRT super-rich territory. Prepare to face the consequences. And what will they be? For openers, I hope both the rich and the poor will avoid violence. The rough stuff seldom helps either side. And it would be unfair to the rich guys. As a rule poor folks have more guns and know how to shoot straighter than billionaires who spend their spare time on yachts ordering their hired skippers to Bring her a few points to starboard, Kowalski. On the other hand, we all know who usually wins when the rich face the non-rich in legal proceedings involving armed assault. If super-rich is not clearly defined, how will the poor know precisely who our enemies are? What if we select someone as a target of attack, and then later discover he/she was NOT really super-rich but merely comfortable or well off? When the economic wars break out in earnest, what will some of the weapons be, on both sides? Exorbitant taxes on the wealthy immediately come to mind. But that will require action by Congress and state legislatures. Many of them are already controlled by the rich and powerful of both parties, and thats not likely to change. Economic boycotts may become a more effective weapon. Lets say that the Sigafoos Corporation, which makes most of the worlds oatmeal, is owned by a man worth $300 billion who pays his workers next to nothing. One day on the Internet, the Citizens Boycott Center sends out this message to every American: Stop buying Sigafoos Oatmeal! Within a few months, the Sigafoos Corporation has vanished. However, many other companies frightened by the Sigafoos boycott will have suddenly increased their workers wages, and are now run by CEOs whose salaries may not exceed 100 times what their janitors earn. Would such a tactic work in real life? I dont know. Its easy to concoct solutions on paper. Besides, its been pointed out that as Tom Perkins (above) climbed the slippery plutocracy pole, he created 275,000 jobs and generated more than $90 billion for persons other than himself. The Robin Hood theory of income distribution, if put into effect, would surely please those persons who received money taken from the coffers of the super-rich. But would the mathematics hold up over the long run? If, overnight, almost all of the 1-percenters financial holdings were re-distributed to families earning, say, less than $20,000 a year, would that really solve our nations inequality problems? Todays rich vs. not-rich conflict is by no means historys first example of economic imbalance. In the 40 years following the Civil War, titans such as Carnegie and Rockefeller ruled our country and ushered in the age of conspicuous consumption. Teddy Roosevelt and his trust-busters brought a peaceful end to that vulgar splurge. In contrast, France in 1789 and Russia in 1917 witnessed bloody and terrifying rearrangements of the economic order. Could such upheavals ever take place in the USA? I certainly hope not. But even the faint possibility of such events should act as a spur for our government and individual citizens to seek and find an end to this dissension. I doubt if most Americans favor the random, wholesale ransacking of the ultra-richs bank accounts. What fair-minded men and women desire is to return to the time when hard work, perseverance, some degree of talent and a level playing field assured contenders at least a 50-50 chance of achieving pay dirt and some kind of hoped-for dream. Did such an era ever really exist? Could we ever get back to it? Stay tuned.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.I have found the issue that can bring America together. Republicans and Democrats, urban hipsters and country folk, corporate scions and infrequent fliers they all seem to agree: The federal government must not allow mobile phone use on planes. If the Federal Communications Commission allows airlines with properly equipped planes to open the cellphone gates on commercial flights, even Washington agrees there will be revolts in the friendly skies. On Tuesday, by a bipartisan voice vote, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed a bill, the Prohibiting In-Flight Voice Communications on Mobile Wireless Devices Act, to the House floor. Chairman Bill Shuster, a Republican from Pennsylvania and the bills author, argues that at 30,000 feet, fellow passengers do not have the option of walking away from obnoxious loudmouths. Ergo, the Department of Transportation must ban voice calls on planes. Shuster, however, does favor regulations to allow passengers to use their phones and tablets to text, send emails and work online. Hes got a catchy slogan: Tap, dont talk. Me, I feel sorry for the poor chumps at the FCC. Since 1991, the FCC has banned cellphone use on planes, lest the signals interfere with wireless networks on the ground. With the advent of technology that can prevent interference, the FCC revisited the rule. In October, the FCC ruled that passengers may leave their phones on (in airplane mode) and personal electronic devices during takeoff and landing because its mission is to regulate technology, not passenger behavior. Kudos, the public should cheer. Finally, a regulatory agency that doesnt want to overreach its authority. Shuster himself noted that it is the responsibility of the Department of Transportation, not the FCC, to make rules in the name of airline safety. Unconcerned with jurisdictional matters, however, the public has flooded the FCC with protests. According to The Associated Press, 48 percent of Americans (78 percent of frequent fliers) oppose allowing passengers to talk on their phones. I get it. As airlines try to make flights cheaper a good thing seats are closer together and service lacks even the oh-so-modest frills of yore. When flying is a chore, passengers get grumpy. Its no fun even just riding public transportation next to a bigmouth, and city bus rides dont last six hours like a cross-country flight. The flying public fears air rage incidents. That said, Americans are overreacting. The FCC conducted a study of countries that allowed cellphone use on planes in 2012; none of the 11 authorities that responded reported any cases of air rage or flight attendant interference. Most countries reported low usage and short calls, and if there were complaints, they were about the cost or interruption of service. Remember when U.S. airlines installed those pricey middle-seat phones? There were no mutinies in the sky. If the FCC allows voice calls, my guess is that U.S. airlines will prohibit or strictly limit usage. Delta and Southwest have announced their intent to just say no. Legal departments, litigious consumers and flight attendant unions should take care of the rest. I know world travelers who pay big bucks to visit countries that offer hole-in-the-floor plumbing and bus rides with barnyard animals and who nonetheless are terrified at the prospect of flying on a U.S. airline on which other passengers can make cellphone calls. Truly, we live in a golden age. Americans idea of hardship is flying safely over the entire country in six hours, with access to movies, music and their choice of news. But oh, the horrors, someone else being able to make a phone call? For this, Congress will act.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.lessons from a female ski instructor, who I nicknamed Bulldog. She barked at me all day: Snow plow! Snow plow! Snow plow! Voil, better. Later during the lesson, as I was musing over whether the assorted bruises to my ego and my body were worth the aggravation, Bulldog gave me some hope. You come back tomorrow. I think youre starting to get your balance. No? Ellen and Bill had other plans. Go with us instead. Well take you to a bunny slope, Ellen said. Like hell. There are no bunny slopes in the Alps. I started the morning out by crashing into the ground after leaving the lift. Spent most of the day in the snow of a glacier looking up at little French kids skiing over me. But I survived and swore over several glasses of beer that I would return to Chamonix the following year and become something other than an icon for comic relief on the slopes. A year later, I was still crossing skis and performing yard sales, much to delight of other group members. There goes Germond again, bowling for skiers, Bill said. Come on, Tom, we need to get down the mountain sometime today, Ellen said. In Kitzbuhel, Austria, in 1993, the lack of snow further impeded my abilities to improve but I didnt look as wobbly as members of some Swedish ski team who were joined arm in arm while they sang the lyrics to Hey Jude for what seemed to be hours at some crazy Austrians beerhouse later that evening. By 1997, I think I was starting to get my balance. Took a downhill 37-mile ski trip to France via northern Italys system of torturous lifts that might have been built by Caesars army. We were told to bring our passports, leading me to wonder who was going to check them. Nobody unless you wanted to eat or dink something at an alpine restaurant. Never tried night skiing. However, in 2001 after the crazy Austrians plied us with alcohol and yodeling for a couple of hours, we were tempted to try night sledding. Then the crazy Austrians told us the trail was the darkened road on which we drove to get to the restaurant. We declined. Safety is not in the crazy Austrians vocabulary. By then, I think even the bulldog French ski instructor would acknowledge that I had approached the intermediate level on the ski slopes. I could get down the hill. Voil; I was happy. Recently, as I sifted through the contents of my suitcase, including a ski bib, trail maps, long underwear, headbands, goggles, and, for some reason, a bottle opener, those memories of great trips came rushing back. Reminiscing is a priceless pleasure. Im eternally grateful to Ellen, Bill and their extended family for introducing me to skiing and taking me on some great trips abroad. Cant part with my ski apparel at least not yet. It will remain in my suitcase in my cluttered closet. Right next to my racquetball bag.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

The writer should have used I believe or I feel or think rather than provide information as facts. I do not know where the writer obtained the sources for the information but not all corroborate the science of marijuana. Smoking marijuana can be a danger to health. I base my findings on information from the National Institute of Health website, but it says nothing about DNA changes. The site also says when used heavily some of the adverse effects occur. Now to the other critique of the article. Does the writer differentiate recreational vs. medicinal use? There are certain people who would benefit from marijuana use especially those suffering from terminal illness and from chronic pain. The writer makes no mention of the benefits. It is my understanding that the present proposal that will be on the ballot is for medical use only. Possibly some cases would occur where people would abuse marijuana but for those, who suffer from the aforementioned conditions, marijuana should be a treatment. David Robinson St. PetersburgSave, restore the BiltmoreEditor: The recent town hall meeting was as lively as ever when the subject was the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Since the Town Commission agreed to stay the zoning for another 6 months, the priority becomes to find a buyer who will restore the hotel. Restoration is possible, so lets put that item on the shelf. Whats next? Even some of the naysayers said they would be agreeable for restoration if the buyers had the money, and the credentials for marketing and managing the hotel after its restoration. Until now, the town has passively waited for people to come forward with their ideas; hopes are raised and then dashed, because they cant raise the money. Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported the growth of boutique hotels (10 to 100 rooms). See article here: online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB100014241278873243265045784 65240387040304. The major hotel chains also are involved in timeshare and or condotels. Check out Clearwater Beach. Its time to think about what to put in the box. The Belleview Biltmore would be a great collection of all three under one roof. In order to make this happen, somebody on the Belleair Board of Commissioners needs to take the initiative. I would recommend Commissioner Fowler. His position on saving the hotel is unambiguous. If he or other commissioners do not think that their position is adequate enough to get the attention of top officers in the big three (Marriott, Hilton or Sheraton), then ask for assistance from the governor and his office. When the next town meeting includes the Biltmore, and this is done, its a safe bet that there will be fewer Preservationists teed off. Ken Keating Belleair The super rich versus the rest of us Drivers SeatBob Driver Voil! A suitcase full of memoriesThe best yard sale Ive ever had was in the snow. In case you didnt know, in skiing terminology, a yard sale is defined as the act of a skier losing his balance and, due to the laws of centrifugal force and gravity, unintentionally falling down, causing his or her cap, sunglasses, gloves, skis and other personal belongings to scatter on the snow or beneath it. Im an expert at this. In 1992, my yard sale in the Alps in northern Italy was so spectacular that I somehow managed to lose my lift pass in the snow. Consequently, instinct took over, and I engaged in the longest Aprs-ski ever undertaken by an ugly American abroad while my friends enjoyed most of that afternoon on the slopes. That incident came to mind recently when I was thinking about selling my ski apparel, which is tucked away in a suitcase in my closet. Havent skied since 2003, in deference to the toll that acts of jockdom have taken on my body two knee surgeries and two foot surgeries. Put an end to my days of racquetball, too. However, nostalgias powerful grip may be deluding me. Could Yard Sale Germond return to the slopes? For about 10 years I took several trips to Europe with a group called Adventures on Skis. It all started in 1991 while I was an editor for the Osceola News-Gazette in Kissimmee. A co-worker, Ellen Johnston, invited me to go on a free trip to Chamonix, France. One of the people who had signed up for the trip canceled within a few days before leaving. Though she couldnt get a refund, she was allowed to transfer her reservations for the hotels and flights to another traveler. Since I was one of the few people she knew who had a passport, Ellen called me and asked if I would like to go on the trip with her husband, Bill, and her and other members of the group. I had to be at her house, which was about 30 minutes away, in an hour. I hesitated because Id never been on skis in my life, had little winter clothing and had a heavy workload that week. But my boss said, Whats keeping you from going? Youre single, and its free. Co-workers practically pushed me out the door. I ran into the bank to get my passport out of my safe deposit box. Then I went home and threw things into the suitcase. Made it to Ellens house in about an hour. They only asked that I give the woman who had to cancel her trip some small compensation. From a pay phone at a restaurant on the road, I called my dad, who told my mother, Tommy just babbled something about being on his way to France.

The Market is Rebounding! 14A Police Police beatbeing held at the Pinellas County Jail without bond.Man charged with child abuseTARPON SPRINGS Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit have arrested a Tarpon Springs man Feb. 12 for child abuse after he allegedly caused two fractures to a childs right leg because he was angry and frustrated over financial issues.According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Joshua Clifford Spencer, 22, was arrested about 3:30 p.m. at the Sheriffs Administration Building in Largo. The crime occurred at a private residence in north Pinellas. Crimes Against Children detectives began investigating the crime after a female relative of the child reported that Spencer might have hurt the 14-monthold female. The relative also reported that the suspect had also battered her. Spencer was first arrested on the evening of Feb. 10 for domestic battery and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. He was released on bond on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 8 p.m. Through further investigation into the child abuse allegations, detectives learned the childs right leg had been fractured in two locations. The relative told deputies that the suspect was angry and frustrated over financial issues and that the two had had an argument about the matter. The unnamed relative told detectives that she had left the child in Spencers care Feb. 10 and when she returned Spencer told her that something was wrong with the babys leg. The two transported the child to the hospital for treatment. Detectives continued their investigation and Spencer responded to the Sheriffs Administration Building for an interview Feb. 12. He initially told detectives that hed fallen while holding the baby and that the babys leg had become caught underneath him. Detectives said he then admitted to handling the child in a rough manner while changing her diaper, causing the fractures to the leg. He was arrested for aggravated child abuse and transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.Man dies from injuries suffered in crashPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police announced Feb. 12 that a man injured in a Feb. 7 crash at Park Boulevard and Belcher Road has died.

Crossing guard badges were presented to those who had most recently finished Florida Department of Transportation certification. A length of service certificate presentation also took place during a ceremony at Elks Lodge 1525 in Dunedin. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri presented 12 length of service certificates, 30 FDOT badges, eight FDOT trainer certificates and 30 perfect attendance certificates. The PCSO School Crossing Guard Program presently has 136 crossing guards covering 187 school crossing posts for 36 elementary schools, nine middle schools and one high school in the unincorporated area as well as in the contract cities of Dunedin, Safety Harbor, Oldsmar, Seminole and Madeira Beach. The School Crossing Guard Program began in 1972 as a volunteer program. Through the years, the program has grown to meet and adhere to FDOT standards. Each school crossing guard attends a mandatory six-hour classroom training session and two-hours of field training, which is followed up with three days of field training at the guards assigned post.Feb. 22 Operation Safe Surrender set Individuals with non-violent, misdemeanor warrants can turn themselves in during Operation Safe Surrender Saturday, Feb. 22, and have their warrants resolved in a safe environment, as well as receive favorable considerations from the court. Come to the Suncoast Safety Council, 455 31st St. N., St. Petersburg, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The project is comprised of representatives from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Pinellas/Pasco State Attorney and Public Defenders Office, Clerk of Courts, and the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court. Operation Safe Surrender is not an amnesty program, but does offer favorable considerations from the court, often in the form of reduced fines, probation requirements or a new court date as an alternative to incarceration. The program allows wanted individuals to take responsibility for their actions, stop running from the law and clear their outstanding warrants. Individuals should arrive with a valid photo ID. No weapons or children are allowed. For more information, call Sgt. Bryan Bingham at 727582-6149.Man stabbed in botched drug dealPALM HARBOR A Holiday man was arrested for attempted murder in the second degree Feb. 14 after reportedly stabbing a man who sold him fake cocaine. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, James Jennings, 18, was charged with attempted murder in connection with the incident that occurred about 1:40 a.m. at an apartment in Palm Harbor. Deputies responded to a call about an individual being stabbed and rendered aid to Francisco Antonio Caraffa, 20, who had been stabbed multiple times. Bayflight arrived at the scene a short time later and took Caraffa to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that Jennings had sold Caraffa fake narcotics (cocaine) prior to the altercation. At Caraffas residence later in the evening, he confronted Jennings about the quality of his drugs. The confrontation escalated and eventually turned physical. During the brief skirmish, Caraffa thought he had only been punched, then noticed an exorbitant amount of blood on his clothing, deputies said. It turned out he had been stabbed multiple times by Jennings. A PCSO K-9 Unit tracked Jennings not far from the original scene and took him into custody without incident. Upon questioning, Jennings admitted to the confrontation but denied stabbing Caraffa. Jennings is James Jennings Joshua Clifford Spencer Photo courtesy of PCSOMembers of Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post 900 participate in a pistol competition during the Florida Association of Police Explorers Delegate training event Jan. 31-Feb. 2, hosted by the Palm Bay Police Department.

They have been learning about how inventors have used both simple and complex ideas and turned them into inventions to solve a problem or make life easier. Pictured is Bauders third-grade gifted class. Sally Burks, the gifted program teacher, transformed her classroom into a theater, with a theater curtain as a backdrop and served popcorn during presentations. First-grade through fifth-grade students researched and dressed up as the inventor of their choice, made models of the invention and presented it. Some of their favorite inventions presented included the popsicle (child inventor), ear muffs (child inventor), the Barbie doll, roller skates, the violin, the piano, the saxophone, the submarine, the ferris wheel, the Slinky, the traffic signal, and the disposable diaper. Burks also enjoyed dressing up and acting as a different inventor each day.Inventors & InventionsOsceolas Future Business Leaders of America team.SEMINOLE On Jan. 29, Osceola Fundamental High Schools Future Business Leaders of America attended the FBLA District Conference at the First Presbyterian Church in St. Petersburg Members of Osceolas FBLA chapter competed in a variety of different competitive events.

PETERSBURG Former NAACP president and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous will address faculty, staff, students and members of the public Thursday, Feb. 20, 7:30 p.m., in Fox Hall at Eckerd College, 4200 54th Ave. S. Sponsored by the colleges Afro-American Society and the office of multicultural affairs, Jealous will present That One Big Thing, in which he will identify the simple steps that can accelerate anyone toward achieving feats of great social transformation and service. This event, in observance of Black History Month, is free and open to the public and is part of Eckerds Presidential Events Series. The youngest president in the history of the NAACP, Jealous began his career at age 18 opening mail at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Since then, Jealous has been a leader of successful state and local movements to ban the death penalty, outlaw racial profiling, defend voting rights and secure marriage equality. Under his leadership, the NAACP grew to be the largest civil rights organization online and on mobile, experienced its first multi-year membership growth in 20 years, and became the largest community-based nonpartisan voter registration operation in the country. Jealous stepped down as NAACP president at the end of 2013. Prior to leading the NAACP, he spent 15 years serving as a journalist and community organizer. While at Mississippis Jackson Advocate Newspaper, his investigations were credited with exposing corruption at the state penitentiary at Parchman and proving the innocence of a black farmer who was being framed for arson. While at Amnesty International, he led successful efforts to outlaw prison rape, expose the increasing trend of children being sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, and draw attention to expanded racial profiling in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. When he was still a college student, Jealous helped lead a successful campaign to stop the governor of Mississippi from turning a public historically black university into a prison. A Rhodes Scholar, he is a graduate of Columbia and Oxford universities. He has been named to the 40 under 40 lists of both Forbes and Time magazines, and labeled a Young Global Economic Leader by the World Economic Forum. He is No. 1 on TheRoot.coms 2013 list of black leaders under 45. Jealous lives in Maryland with his wife and two children.

16A Real Estate Seminole Beacon, February 20, 2014 About 1.2 million U.S. adults suffer from lumbar spinal stenosis, a condition in which the spinal canal narrows putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, causing back and leg pain. Conventional surgery for this condition involves the permanent fusion of spine bones and joints, stabilizing the spine. Although effective, fusion may eliminate the natural range of motion between these bones, possibly leading to further spine degeneration. Largo Medical Center is participating in a clinical trial that may redefine the surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis. The study focuses on a new concept in spine surgery called facet joint replacement. The clinical trial is evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational device called the ACADIAFacet Replacement System. Scott Webb, DO, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, is part of a select group throughout the U.S. taking part in this landmark study. The study is open to both male and female patients between the ages of 21 and 85 who have been diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis and have had at least 6 months of conservative care; injections, medication, physical therapy, etc. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Rose A.

We continue to have good success in leasing and selling properties within this area. The improvement of the economy will help keep the north Pinellas industrial market moving forward but there is still some pockets of industrial space that needs to be leased.

For Larry Smart, 44, of Tampa it could be because he wins the race more often than not. Smart first entered the race two years ago and finished first overall. If the race is getting better with age, then so is Smart. Back then he won the race with a time of 16:52. His personal best at the time was 16:30 so he was disappointed with his winning time. He blamed it on the heat; the temperature at race time in 2012 was well over 70 degrees. On Feb. 15 the race time temperature was barely 60 degrees and it showed. Smart won again, this time with a time if 16:25 and once again he credited the weather with the result. It was a nice cool evening, great for running, he said. The course is great but there is a little incline toward the end that sort of takes it out of you. However Im happy with the way things turned out. Smart also was happy with the entire event and he perhaps was able to answer some of the questions as to why runners keep coming back to Belleair. It really has to do with the course mostly, he said. This is a beautiful area, it is a very pleasant run and of course the afterparty is the best one around. Smart missed last years race because he was out of town but says he intends to come back again next year if he can. The first place womens finisher in the race was Kristen Tenaglia of Seminole. She finished with a time of 17:51. That wasnt bad, Ive done better but it was pretty good, she said, I havent raced for a while but I had another girl pushing me all the way. Tenaglia, who has entered the Sunset 5K three or four other times, echoed Smarts comments about why she keeps coming back. Belleair is a beautiful city,Previous winner sets the pace again in Belleair race Photos by BRIAN GOFFAbove, Larry Smart, 44, of Tampa won the Belleair Sunset 5K race. Below, Seminoles Kristen Tenaglia was the first woman finisher. Here she crosses the finish line.she said. It is a good course with lovely scenery and a great party afterwards. It makes for a fun race. Tenaglia, 25, said she used the Sunset 5K as a warm up for the Gasparilla Race in Tampa, which is coming up Feb. 22. She also warms up by running more than 10 miles every day. Belleairs newly appointed director of special events, Danielle Felten, said she was pleased with the whole event. I was a little worried that something might go wrong, she said. But everything went as planned and when something did need a little tweaking the people assigned to the task did their jobs perfectly. The now renowned after-party takes place on the sports field adjacent to the Dimmitt Community Center. All those who paid the entry fee for the race get to attend the all-you-can eat, all-you-can drink free party. It is likely every one of the 1,000 runners registered would list the party as a main reason why they attend. Felten said already plans are underway for next years Sunset 5K, which will be the 13th annual. hats are set to gather at the Largo Community Center, 400 Alt. Keene Road, for the annual Red Hat Tea Party Tuesday, March 11 or Wednesday, March 12, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Red Hatters will enjoy live music, dancing, door prizes, contests, vendor shopping and a lunch freshly prepared by the Largo Community Center.

Therese (Elizabeth Olsen) is a ravishing but sexually repressed young woman trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin Camille (Tom Felton) by her domineering aunt Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange). Now, Therese must spend her days as a virtual shut-in, confined behind the counter of a small shop by day and watching Madame play dominos in the evening. But when she meets her husbands alluring childhood friend, Laurent (Oscar Isaac), everything changes. What begins as a thrillingly illicit, clandestine affair will unravel into a shocking set of tragic circumstances for everyone.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

According to a press release from the Mitch Schneider Organization, the artists publicist, Mason plans to release a new EP titled Futures Past in 2014. The EP will feature new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. The EP will be available online at www.davemasonmusic.com and at Masons live shows. Renowned for such Traffic hits as Feelin Alright and Hole In My Shoe, plus his solo signature tracks We Just Disagree and Only You Know and I Know, Mason is excited to perform the music of Traffic. I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music, Mason said in a press release. And Traffic Jam aside from the obvious material will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive. CLEARWATER Audiences will have an opportunity to take a journey back to the greatest days of rock with Dave Masons sight and sound experience, Traffic Jam. Dave Masons Traffic Jam will take a detour into the Tampa Bay area Friday, Feb. 21, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets start at $49. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter and legendary guitarist has been making music since the age of 18 when he teamed up with fellow British native Steve Winwood to form the band Traffic. Since then he has penned dozens of hits such as Feelin Alright and We Just Disagree. He has been linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot. Mason has been performing to sold-out audiences for years and has sold millions of recordings worldwide. Masons solo studio albums include Alone Together (1970), Dave Mason & Cass Elliot (1971), Headkeeper (1972), Its Like You Never Left (1973), Dave Mason (1974), Split Coconut (1975), Let It Flow (1977), Mariposa De Oro (1978), Old Crest on a New Wave (1980), Two Hearts (1987), Some Assembly Required (1987) and Letters 12 Notes (2008). Prior to his solo career, Masons involvement with Traffic resulted in the studio albums Mr. Fantasy (1967), Traffic (1968) and Last Exit (1969), as well as the live album Welcome to the Canteen (1971). In 2014, Mason is on the road with an exciting new project billed as Dave Masons Traffic Jam. The tour kicked off Jan. 3 in Atlantic City, N.J., and will continue through the rest of the year. The Traffic Jam concert will feature hits and deep album cuts from 1967s Mr. Fantasy and 1968s Traffic albums andDave Mason, a Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter and legendary guitarist, has been making music since the age of 18.

American Stage offers an unforgettable theatrical journey with one Florida premiere, four area premieres, two Tony Award-winning plays, two musicals, its eighth installment of the August Wilsons Century Cycle, a Neil Simon classic and a farce by Lewis Black. This year I was interested in stories that provided social bridges to experiences and inside stories far from our own, said Todd Olson in a press release. Olson is artistic director at American Stage. The season will open with The Chosen, written by the creators of last years hit My Name is Asher Lev, and is followed by Nureyevs Eyes, a bonus production and a Florida premiere produced in conjunction with Rudolf Nureyev by James Wyeth: Images of the Dancer from the Brandywine River Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. During the holidays, American Stage will present Neil Simons Laughter on the 23rd Floor. Kicking off the new year will be the eighth installment in the August Wilsons Century Cycle, Radio Golf, followed by the hilarious musical comedy Gutenberg! The Musical! starring Matthew McGee and Chris Crawford. In celebration of the 30th anniversary with American Stage in the Park, the company will take to the outdoors with the Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical and Pulitzer finalist In the Heights. The summer of 2015 will see the play that won the Tony for Best Play, Red, and the regional premiere of comedian Lewis Blacks farce One Slight Hitch. American Stage Theatre Company presents its main stage productions in the Raymond James Theatre, 163 Third St. N., St. Petersburg. To purchase tickets or main stage subscription packages, call 8237529 or visit www.americanstage .org. Following is a summary of the 2014-15 season at American Stage Theatre. The Chosen, adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok, from the novel by Chaim Potok; previews Sept. 3-4; runs Sept. 5-28. It is 1944 set in Brooklyn, and two Jewish boys grow up five blocks and a world apart. A standing-room-only hit wherever it has played, this award-winning adaptation (from the award-winning novel) is by the same creators of last years hit My Name Is Asher Lev. The play begins when Reuven and Danny play a heated game of baseball between rival yeshivas until one is badly hurt. As their unique friendship grows, they learn important lessons about their fathers, their community, and themselves. Nureyevs Eyes, by David Rush; previews Oct. 15-16; runs Oct. 17-26. The play will be produced in conjunction with Rudolf Nureyev by James Wyeth: Images of the Dancer from the Brandywine River Museum at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. An inside story about two masters an American painter and a Russian ballet dancer and how they created a now famous set of paintings. During the 1970s, the American painter Jamie Wyeth (son of Andrew) did a series of studies and paintings of Rudolf Nureyev, the legendary ballet dancer who defected from Russia and revitalized western ballet. Written with the express permission and support of Jamie Wyeth, this brand new play by David Rush imagines what their electric encounters may have been like, what secrets were revealed about the world of painting and international dance, and how their relationship evolved changing each of them. Laughter on the 23rd Floor, by Neil Simon; previews Nov. 19-20; runs Nov. 21 through Dec. 14. Get an inside look at the writers room with Mel Brooks, Sid Caesar, Neil Simon, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, and other legends of early TV. Inspired by Neil Simons youthful experience as a staff writer on Sid Caesars Your Show of Shows, the show features all the attendant comic drama as the harried writing staff frantically scrambles to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of star madman. Radio Golf, by August Wilson; previews Jan. 21-22; runs Jan. 23 through Feb. 22, 2015. The production will be the eighth installment in American Stage Theatres August Wilson Century Cycle. Harmond Wilks is a real estate developer poised to become Pittsburghs first African-American Mayor. He is also on the verge of clinching a lucrative land deal: if the government declares the Hill District as blighted including Aunt Esthers house on 1839 Wylie a lot of federal money will be made available to Harmond and his partners. But as he steps into political prominence, his plans collide with his past, and August Wilsons 10th play shows how, in the rush to progress, the past is never too far behind. Gutenberg! The Musical!, by Scott Brown and Anthony King; starring Matthew McGee and Chris Crawford; previews March 11-12; runs March 13 through April 5, 2015. In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers audition for their new project a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their crass historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract fulfilling their ill-advised dreams. In the Heights, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and book by Pulitzer-winner Quiara Alegra Hudes; previews April 22-23; runs April 24 through May 17, 2015. In the Heights is Broadways Tony Award-winning Best Musical about chasing dreams and finding a true home. This exhilarating musical tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New Yorks Washington Heights neighborhood a place where the coffee from the corner coffee shop is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. Its a community on the brink of change, full of hopes and dreams where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. With a gripping story and incredible music and dance, In the Heights is a groundbreaking 21st century musical and the next chapter in the classic American story. Red, by John Logan; previews May 27-28; runs May 29 through June 21, 2015. Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New Yorks famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant in his studio on the Bowery. But when the student gains the confidence to challenge the master, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, RED is the inside story of an artists ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting. One Slight Hitch, by Lewis Black; previews July 8-9; runs July 10 through Aug. 2, 2015. Its Courtneys wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure that everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will be perfect. Then, like in any good farce, the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. So much for perfect.American Stage Theatre Company is a not-for-profit professional theater founded in 1977. The companys mission is to create the most satisfying live theatre in the Tampa Bay area, accessible to all members of the community.
