Fred Zinda named 2013 Mr. Seminole By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The Seminole Chamber of Commerce honored several of the communitys top business and civic leaders at the citys most prestigious awards ceremony March 1. For the first time in several years, the Mr./Ms. Seminole banquet was held separately from the Chambers installation event. This years event took place at Holiday Inn Harbourside in Indian Rocks Beach. Jotos Pizza founder Fred Zinda took home the top award of the evening and was named the 2014 Mr. Seminole. Others honored included Marianne Fisher, Boss of the Year; Seminole Goodyear, Business of the Year; and Jean Campbell, Merit Award. Zinda, along with his wife, Carol Zinda, opened Jotos Pizza in Pinellas Park in 1974, initially operating as a Krustys Pizza franchise. The couple opened their Seminole location in 1982. The Zindas have a long history of giving back to the community. Theyve donated food, money and time to a variety of local organizations, including Seminole High School, Blessed Sacrament Church, youth sports teams and a number of civic groups. They also organize holiday gift giving for needy families and over the past 10 years, their annual Dough for the Kids Golf Classic has raised more than $300,000 for All Childrens Hospital. Fred was also previously named Boss of the Year by the Chamber. I am so proud and so humbled, he said after being named Mr. Seminole. Then, he called his wife up to join him at the podium. Who would have ever thought 40 years later wed be here accepting this award from this wonderful community, she said.

Things really started to turn around the past two years, though, he added. Last year the team ended the season 21-4, and 23-7 in 2012. Both years the Warhawks were district runner-ups, losing each time to St. Petersburg High School by just two and one points, respectively in each district final. Then this season saw a district shakeup. Every two years, the districts are realigned, Walker said. Though theyd face them in a regular season game, Seminole would no longer be contending with SPHS for the title. But Walker was uncertain about how far the team would make it this year. Last year, eight seniors graduated, leaving holes to fill. We were kind of wondering if we were going to have enough firepower to get there again, he said. He began to motivate his players in the off-season with what they referred to as Operation 14 and a goal to make it into the district playoffs again. And Walker put his players to work, as well. Over the season, theyd practice two times a day weight room and drills during the day, scrimmages at night. We work really hard in the off season, he said. Theres a great commitment from both our parents and our students. Seniors Connor Frain and Tanner Cowan stepped up as leaders. Theyre our biggest leaders, Walker said. Theyre very unselfish players, more worried about the team. Meanwhile, two juniors lit up the scoreboard for the Warhawks. Marco Behori led the team in points with about 18 per game, Walker said, and TJ Frounfelter averaged about 13. The teams fans known as The Splash Zone were another motivating factor for the team. The bleachers are full for each game, Walker said, and onlookers wear special T-shirts they had made up, creating a crowd of orange. Theyve taken on their own identity, he said. Theyre great and give us an advantage at home. Nobody wants to have to face us here. Though the season just ended a few weeks ago, Walker and the team are already thinking about next year. They have one goal in mind: winning the district title again. It wont be easy, he said. Though theyre only losing three seniors from his eightplayer rotation of starters, including Frain and Cowan, those players happen to be the teams biggest rebounders and make up the core of its defense. No one person is going to be able to replace any of them, Walker said. People are going to have to step up as a committee. Were losing our height, our defense and our rebounds.Jacob Valentine and Gretchen Wells. A motion to approve a license agreement with the owners of Seminole Mall for use of its parking lot for parade staging was removed from the table because it was not yet prepared, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. The council moved to allow Edmunds to execute the agreement once it was complete. Each year we go through the process with mall ownership to come with an agreement regarding citys use of their property for Pow Wow Parade, Edmunds said. This year, it took a little bit of extra time, he said, and the agreement can take longer to draw up for a number of reasons, especially if there are new owners or attorneys involved. In other action items, the council: authorized a funding request of up to $1,000 for a German delegations March 13 and 14 visit to the city as part of the National League of Cities Urban Fellowship program. The money, taken from the citys contingency fund, will be used to pay for meals at lunch and dinner and travel expenses to and from the airport, and within the city, Edmunds said. The delegation will meet city leaders and employees, tour city facilities and visit St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus. Councilor Plantamura took a similar trip to Germany earlier this year. approved the citys co-sponsorship of the Seminole Kiwanis Clubs Every Child A Swimmer program, which will take place at the Seminole Family Aquatic Center April 14 through May 1.

Police 5A Police beat14-year-old male shot in SeminoleSEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are investigating an apparent accidental shooting in Seminole that occurred at about 4:20 p.m. on Sunday, March 2, at a private residence located on 134th Way North in Seminole. According to detectives, the victim, 14-year-old Andrew Mills and his 16-year-old friend Matthew Emerick came to Matthews home after baseball practice on Sunday afternoon. While they were in the house, Matthew came into a room where Andrew was to show him a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle. While Matthew was showing Andrew the rifle, he accidentally shot Andrew in the abdomen. Andrew was transported to a local hospital via Bayflite with non-life-threatening injuries. No adults were home at the time of the incident. No charges will be filed against the teen. The investigation continues.U.S. 19 in Tarpon Springs reopens after crashTARPON SPRINGS Traffic returned to normal on U.S. 19 in Tarpon Springs late March 1 after the roadway was closed most of the day due to downed power lines and a multi-vehicle incident with two fatalities. Tarpon Springs police reported that an officer on foot patrol checking businesses in Tarpon Tower heard a loud boom coming from the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and U.S. 19 about 3 a.m. March 1. The officer headed to the area and found downed power lines in the road. He attempted to stop traffic headed southbound on U.S. 19; however, two vehicles unavoidably struck the downed lines, the report said. Jaime E. Alvarado, 18, a worker at a nearby McDonalds, approached the officer and told him that just after the boom, he saw a white vehicle headed northbound and that another red vehicle, also in the northbound lane, had gone airborne into the retention pond on the east side of U.S. 19. Duke Energy was alerted about the three downed power poles and multiple live wires in the area. After Duke Energy turned the power off to the area, an adult male was found next to one of the downed poles with wires over him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police do not yet know if the man was a pedestrian or an occupant of the vehicle found in the pond. Officers noted that the location of the body was in line with where the vehicle went airborne over a 6-foot fence and into the pond. Tarpon Springs police dive team found an adult male seat-belted into the passenger seat of the vehicle in the pond. The drivers seat was empty. No other bodies were found. The vehicle was pulled from the pond and authorities report that it was not red but instead was a silver two-door vehicle. Additional description was being withheld until next of kin was notified. Police reported that only one injury was reported from the two southbound vehicles. Marchelle L. Wallace of Port Richey, 27, was treated and released.

Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. According to staff notes, the new facility, to be located at 14790 49th St. in Clearwater, will be an extension of the countys mobile health unit, which is a federally qualified health center that currently serves the homeless population at 12 locations countywide. More specifically, the overall objective of this project is to provide a new health care facility to serve as a patient-centered medical home that uniquely serves the needs of homeless individuals through in-house medical care and social support services, staff said. Plans call for the facility to provide medical and dental care, as well as house a 24-hour medical respite facility to provide convalescent care for clients recently released from a hospital. The project is divided into two phases. Phase 1 will include programming, schematic designs/design development and construction documents to allow for accurate subcontractor bidding and pricing that will be used to come up with a guaranteed lump sum price. Phase 2 is the building construction phase. The commission will approve the lump sum price prior to the start of Phase 2. The building will be constructed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, aka LEED, recommendations, but due to costs will not be formally certified. Staff said cost of Phase 1 should not exceed $265,942. An additional cost for permits and application fees is estimated at $112,783 for a total cost of $378,725. Total cost of the project Phase 1 and Phase 2 is $4.5 million to be funded by a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Capital Grant, approved May 1, 2012, for $5 million. Health and Community Services Director Gwendolyn Warren told commissioners to continue to qualify for the grant, a decision to move forward had to be made Feb. 25. Commissioners asked a number of questions about the cost of operations and maintenance for the new facility. Paul Sacco, director of Real Estate Management, said O&M costs had been estimated at $150,000 a year. He deferred questions about staffing to Warren. Warren said O&M costs would be paid for from the Health and Community Services budget. She said ongoing negotiations for staffing were continuing with a number of the countys partners that currently provide homeless services, as well as area hospitals. Were working on it, she said. The goal is to get people into treatment. Other sources of funding Warrens staff is looking at include homeless medical assistance programs and federal grants. She said the biggest anticipated shortfall is for equipment needs dental chairs, furniture for exam rooms and the like. Were trying to get grants and manage our resources, she said. She said cost of care would be paid for by Medicaid and private insurance billing and money from the general fund to pay for uninsured clients. Warren and her staff are working on a number of reports that are expected to be complete in May. My big concern is how to pay for this, Commission Chair Karen Seel said. Were still on a wing and a prayer. We had 10 medical homes, now we have five and this will be six, Warren said. I believe we can manage it. She said the grant includes a mandated time line. The county is currently behind about one year. Warren told commissioners if they didnt continue to move the project forward, the money could be lost. This gives me no choice, Seel said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said much of the information the commissioners wanted to know had been provided in past meetings; however, he admitted it might be helpful to have a report that put everything together in one package. Its not firmed up on where the resources are coming from, Seel said. Its not signed, sealed and delivered. It cant be signed, sealed and delivered until approval, Warren replied. She said agreements had been made with some partners, specifically the Juvenile Welfare Board and All Childrens Hospital. I cant promise anything. I really cant, Warren said. The plan is to not come back for resources. It is not my intention as long as Im director to ask for more resources. LaSala suggested scheduling a work session to discuss the details and work that has already been done to secure resources to staff the facility. Seel continued to express her concerns about the complications of realigning resources, saying it could be problematic. The devil is in the details, Warren agreed. Pinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel asks questions Feb. 25 about how staff plans to pay for staffing of a new medical facility to be constructed on 49th Street in Clearwater.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTER County briefsEnrollment opens for ambulance membership planApplications are being accepted through March 31 for the Sunstar FirstCare Ambulance Membership Plan.

Jack Latvala of Clearwater recently received the 2014 Moffitt Momentum Award during Moffitts annual Business of Biotech Conference. The award was created by Moffitt Cancer Center as a way to honor leaders in the community who have championed the efforts of Moffitt and cancer research. It is given to those public servants whose tireless efforts have benefitted the entire institution over the years, and in turn, who have made a difference in the lives of those individuals battling cancer in Florida, said Dr. Alan List, President and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center. Sen. Latvala was instrumental in passing legislation in 2012 to increase Moffitts share of Floridas cigarette taxes.

We are asking residents to continue to be prudent with their water use, especially outdoor irrigation, at this time. Its important to be mindful of our water supply, said District Chairman Carlos Beruff. The board enacted Phase II Water Shortage restrictions Dec. 17 due to reduced river levels and increasing water supply concerns. Restrictions for lawn watering were expected to continue throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The extended order follows a seasonal feature of Phase II, which recognizes that reasonable lawn irrigation needs may be higher in spring and summer, when days are longer and temperatures are hotter than the winter months, Swiftmud officials said in a press release. Phase II restrictions continue through at least July 31, depending on the amount of rainfall the area receives. Under Phase II, local enforcement requirements continue to be in effect and homeowners associations still may not enforce any deed restrictions in a manner, which could cause an increase in water use. Micro-irrigation and hand watering of non-lawn areas can be done any day, if needed. Watering by any source must be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Swiftmud encourages residents to practice Florida-friendly landscaping principles and to water lawns only when needed. The simplest way to determine if your yard needs water is if your grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least onethird of your yard, appear bluegray, or do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it, according to the press release. The Tampa Bay area relies on the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir during the dry season; however, the reservoir is currently being repaired and is out of service.Lawn watering schedule and timesLawn watering days and times for the twice-per-week schedule are as follows unless a municipality has a different schedule or stricter hours in effect. Call the phone number on your water bill if you have questions. Watering can only be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Even addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday Odd addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday Locations without a discernable address, such as rights-ofway and other common areas inside a subdivision, may water on Tuesday and/or FridayNew lawns and plantsNew lawns and plants have a 60-day establishment period. On days one to 30, they may be watered any day of the week. During days 31 to 60, they may be watered approximately every other day. Even-numbered addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Odd-numbered addresses may be watered on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

TORRESLARGO Pianist Sharis Coleman-Derr has been visually impaired since birth. Her struggle to see has been challenging, but isnt the worst fate for the lifetime musician. Music is my thing. Being blind is annoying, but being deaf would be tragic, because then I would have a hard time hearing the music, she said. I cant imagine life without music. To be fair, shes not completely blind. Her retinas were damaged in the womb, an unfortunate side effect to a medicine for morning sickness her mother took when she was pregnant. But her parents didnt realize the damage until Coleman-Derr was about 6 months old. Foreshadowing a life of music, they gave her the middle name Gita, which is Hindi for song, inspired by her grandparents who were missionaries in India. For most of her life, ColemanDerr could see pretty well out of one eye, she said, enough to ride a bike and read textbooks from a closed circuit television. An emergency surgery at age 28 caused further complications. For about six years, ColemanDerr dealt with a cataract slowly thickening in her good eye, making her vision worse. Last January, doctors took the cataract out. But her eye had been dilating more and more over the years to compensate for the cataract When they removed the cataract, my eye was dilated all the time in the daylight. So, it was taking in too much light, which means I dont have enough contrast to see the lines painted on the crosswalks, which makes it very difficult for me to get around now, she said. So Im actually dealing with a new sight change within the last year that makes things even more difficult. A more experimental surgery could either replace her retinas or insert a microchip and neurotransmitter, letting her see via a pair of glasses with cameras that would send the messages directly to her brain. But both approaches are still a long way off in research before they are approved. So for now, Coleman-Derr, 36, deals with the sight she still has. Shes been living on her own since she was 20 and dating an old schoolmate from the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind for longer than that. She enjoys playing at local assisted living facilities and retirement homes. Its a service she picked up when she was visiting her grandparents in an assisted living facility back in Pennsylvania and began playing on the piano. Since then, shes volunteered at the Senior Friendship Center when she lived in Sarasota and locally, at the Grand Villa and, until recently, the Palms of Largos Regal and Cypress Palms. She takes requests, but plays whatever comes to mind, mostly pop songs, romantic melodies and Broadway numbers. Shes particularly fond of the Beatles and artists like Enya. She focuses on positive music, she said, not wanting to waste time on songs with a negative or a woe-is-me message. It was on her grandparents piano the one she still plays on today that she had her first piano lesson. She was about 2 or 3 when she sat down at the piano and began banging on the keys. Her grandfather disciplined her with only spanking I ever received and then explained how she should respect the instrument, she said. From that point on, I thought of the piano as sort of a friend, not just a thing that you bang on, she said. Generally, its sort of a metaphysical belief that when Im playing on the piano, it feels good. The piano feels good; its happy to be of use. I just get that vibration. For a short time when she was 8, Coleman-Derr had a piano teacher who taught her how to play songs by ear. But is mostly self-taught, assembling first the melody of a new song she wants to learn and then accompanying the chords. Aside from the School for the Deaf and Blind, Coleman-Derr attended Manatee College, where she earned an associates degree in psychology. She was a massage therapist for a while, certified in 2003 through the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy. She plays, and also sings, for her church, a local Unitarian Universalist congregation, where shes attended for the last 10 years. In 2006, she decided to put together a CD to help benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Her debut album, which she titled Gita, is made up of her original piano compositions, including her first song Escape, written at a womens retreat; Sunset, written for her brother and Coming home, written for her mother. Coleman-Derr doesnt write songs down physically, so the concept of composing an original song is a bit abstract. She knows that some can get very mathematical with their compositions. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESSharis Coleman-Derr, whose middle name Gita means song in Hindi, plays at her organ in her Largo home.I dont do it that way, she said. For me, its all about hearing the notes. For one of her original songs, she heard the song in her head first. It found its way into a solid melody as she began to plink it out on the piano when she came home. When I write a song, I sit down and figure out the configuration physically on the piano, and then I try to maintain it in memory, she said. If it sticks, then its a song. If it sticks. Coleman-Derr admits that Gita has not sold as well as she would have liked. Shes not the best saleswoman, she said, though those who have bought it, have said the music is very calming. I havent really written anything new in a long time, she said. I like to compose, but I think I have more fun playing songs that I know for an audience. Shes contemplated recording more of her work in another album. But I probably need to sing on that one, she said. To purchase Gita, contact Coleman-Derr at shariscd@tam pabay.rr.com or 366-2291.

The road has been long and difficult, but Platt is happy with the life shes built, she said. Creating and serving food has become her passion. I love what Im doing, she said. I love feeding people. I love making people happy. Visit www.charlietulims.com,www.facebook.com/CharlieTulumsor call 584-TACO. Platt said she hopes to continually expand her customer base at the taco shack. Im hoping that I can propel the business into something that someday will be bigger than the taco shack, she said. Id like to stay here in Largo, build a business here. Im always keeping my eyes open for whats new and whats next and whats going to happen in the future. And, as soon as the Charlie Tulum brand becomes entirely hers, Platt plans on updating the logo. Charlies great; hes awesome. But he is a male and I am female, so I need something that represents me a little more, she said, explaining that the new logo will feature a girl turtle. Though she didnt come up with the mascot of her company, Charlie Tulum has been an appropriate icon to represent Platt. Shes been obsessed with turtles since she started visiting Hawaii once a year for a month at a time and fell in love with swimming alongside them. Locally, shes found herself drawn to the turtles at McGough Nature Center in Largo. Charlie Tulum will be a sponsor and food vendor at the Turtle Trot 5K on April 26, benefiting the center. And there was one other reason Platt was drawn to Charlie Tulum. A couple of years ago, she reconnected with the son whom she bore and gave up for adoption when she was 15. His name is Charlie, and he works as a chef back in Chicago. Thats why its so cosmic, this all coming together in the time By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Once youve cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people on a two-burner stove and a toaster oven, roasting the turkey one piece at a time, serving tacos out of a truck doesnt seem so crazy. Kimberly Platt has always loved to cook and entertain, but in hindsight, that dinner 10 years ago foreshadowed her recent change in careers. I should have known then, she said. Im creative with my space and with what equipment I have available to me. Platt, 42, is the owner of Charlie Tulums Taco Shack and the accompanying Dos Tacos Food Truck. How she came to run a taco and catering business is a serendipitous tale, perhaps only less murky than how a turtle named Charlie made it from Tulum, Mexico, to a home in Indian Rocks Beach. Platt described his journey as smuggled and is careful to avoid the names of his current caretakers. The business named after the Mexican turtle started as a walkup taco window on Indian Rocks Beach. Platt came on as a business partner to help launch the mobile part of taco business. We updated the logo, did a lot of changes, she said. He was supposed to do all the food, and I was doing everything else. The food truck officially began operating Oct. 1. Eleven days later, Platts partner left abruptly during lunch service, mere days before the Dos Tacos Food Truck was scheduled to serve at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday Oct. 16. I had never driven the truck. I had never cooked for that many people, Platt said. So for three days, I didnt even sleep. The trial by fire was managed with the help of some great friends and family, Platt said. She doesnt know how many tacos she served during the event, but it was great advertising for the new business. Everybody that came and ate came back that day and ate again, she said. I have no idea how I did it. Platt leases the building at 707 1/2 First Ave. SW. in Largo. The restriction that she could only be open for lunch at the location was perfect for a food truck business that primarily stayed busy during the evenings. Platt painted the tiny building bright green, trimmed in orange and blue. She decorated the taco shacks yard with colorful patio furniture and planted a garden where she grows fresh basil and parsley that she uses in her tacos. A lot of time and money has been spent here to make this me, she said, sitting with coffee under a green umbrella in the patio area of the taco shack. Ive always had bright, colorful things. It makes you happy youre sitting in happiness. The serene lot a block away from the intersection of West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road and near OShys Irish Tap House is a bit hard to find, she admitted. But its also a great location, because if people want to leave their office and come and hide, they can do that, she said. The taco shack, which offers free Wifi, is open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Charlie Tulums niche is fresh, more organic tacos. Platt, who lives in Dunedin, said she usually stops at Jams Farm Fresh Produce in Largo for ingredients on her way to the taco shack. I shop every morning. I shop as local as I can, Platt said. The taco shack is closed on Mondays because Platt attends classes at the Art Institute of Tampa that day. Shes just two classes away from an associates degree in culinary arts. Restaurant management is a new career field for Platt, but shes always been in the food business and industry in some way, sometimes without even knowing it, she said. Aside from working in restaurants on the beach, she ran a division of her parents food recall and retrieval business, overseeing the representatives that pull products off the shelves. When her parents sold that division, Platt had a rare opportunity to make a scary and crazy change in her life. I had the ability to do anything I wanted to do, she said. At 40 years old when you decide to go back to school, its a whole other ball park. Platt traveled a lot for her previous job one year sleeping in her own bed only 26 nights total. The new lifestyle was supposed to allow her more time at home, around the time that Platt began dating longtime friend and now fiance, Lisa Deliello. My goal is to be home and with her and we have a little puppy as much as possible, because I did travel for so long, so hard, she explained. Nonetheless, Platt has been busy. She probably should have finished school before launching a business, she admitted. But Platt is one who always does everything at once, she said. Shes not sure when shell finish school. Shes taking a semester break to concentrate on Charlie Tulums and plan her beach wedding in March. She and Deliello were the 49th couple to be registered as domestic partners when Pinellas County opened the registry in April. Deliello, whos also finishing up a new degree, often helps Platt on the truck. Catering and the taco truck have been most successful part of the business. When shes not serving from the truck, Platt has a much broader culinary range, specializing in varied selection of bite-size party appetizers she calls smalls. The taco shack also sells more than tacos, offering salads, soups, hot-pressed sandwiches and burritos on its menu as well as changing daily specials. Platt is open to critiques and suggestions, often telling customers, If you like us, tell us on Facebook. If you dont like us, tell us on Facebook. I take any criticism or praise, she said. I havent had too many negative comments. Growth has been steady. Platt began delivering within a two-mile radius of the taco shack about a month ago. She only recently began actively advertising her business. I can feel the business changing. I can feel Largo changing since Ive been here in October, she said. The city officials and leaders have been supportive and welcoming, she said. She recently joined the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and found its members very loyal to one another. Through the chamber, she partnered with Jay Dingman of Barley Mow to bring the truck out for a monthly event on second Thursdays, 6 to 9 p.m. A beer cheese soup she made with Barley Mow beer has already been a sold-out hit.

A second detention deputy has been disciplined failing to immediately report the use of force and misrepresenting the facts of the incident. The incident occurred on Aug. 31, 2013 at the Pinellas County Jail. According to internal affairs investigators, detention deputy Joel De Los Reyes, 51, was assigned to supervise a juvenile pod at the Pinellas County Jail. Investigators say De Los Reyes became engaged in a verbal exchange with one of the inmates over whether the television would remain on or off; and regarding horseplay between inmates. De Los Reyes summoned assistance from detention deputy Adrian Nanu, 49, who entered the housing area through an emergency door, which remained opened and unsecured. At the same time, an inner cell door used to secure the juvenile inmates was left open. Nanu remained outside the emergency doors. De Los Reyes decided to remove the inmate, identified as Steven Valentin, 16, of New Port Richey from the cell. Deputies say he walked him over to the day room, pushed him onto a table. De Los Reyes continued to escort inmate Valentin out toward the emergency door, where Nanu was now entering. As they walked toward the door, De Los Reyes delivered a knee strike and an elbow strike to inmate Valentin. Nenu documented in his supplement initially that inmate Valentin was verbally abusive toward De Los Reyes. Nenu initially indicated that he witnessed the deputy deliver a guided custodial touch to the inmate, but later admitted that this was an inaccurate representation of what had occurred. De Los Reyes failed to report the use of force to his chain of command. He initially stated the inmate was not compliant and that his strike was not excessive. He later admitted to using excessive force. An internal affairs investigation was initiated. De los Reyes resigned while under investigation. The Sheriffs Office Robbery/Homicide Unit, who determined probable cause for arrest, also investigated the case. De Los Reyes turned himself in to the Pinellas County Jail at about 10 a.m. Feb. 24 on charges of battery. He had been employed by the Sheriffs Office since Feb. 27, 2006. Nenu received a seven-day suspension for failing to report the incident to supervision immediately and for misrepresenting the facts of the case. Nenu has been employed by the Sheriffs Office since May 29, 1988. Video of the incident can be viewed at www.TBNweekly.com/con tent_articles/022414_pco-04.txt.

Morton Plant utilizes new Medtronic CoreValveCLEARWATER Two years ago Morton Plant Hospital was the first in the Tampa Bay area to perform an advanced surgical procedure for severe symptomatic aortic stenosis called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). Now, Morton Plant Hospital is expanding its Valve Clinic and TAVR programs with another first, utilizing the newly FDA approved self-expanding Medtronic CoreValve. Morton Plant is the first hospital in the country, not previously involved in the Medtronic research study, to implant the Medtronic CoreValve. The Heart Team at Morton Plant Hospital has now successfully completed six CoreValve implants. TAVR offers an alternative for patients with severe aortic stenosis, who are not considered candidates for conventional open heart surgery. The CoreValve procedure is part of the legacy of firsts for the TAVR program since Morton Plant became the first hospital to bring the procedure to the Tampa Bay area two years ago. The difference with the CoreValve is that it provides an opportunity to treat a broader group of patients, including those with small valves, who previously may not have been able to have the procedure, said Joshua Rovin, M.D., in a press release. Rovin is a cardiovascular surgeon and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. We hope that by utilizing leading edge TAVR treatment and technology, we can provide relief of symptoms, and improve the quality of life for more patients suffering from heart failure due to severe aortic stenosis, said John Ofenloch, M.D., a cardiovascular surgeon and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. In January, the Food & Drug Administration approved the CoreValve. This means that patients do not have to be part of a clinical research trial to be considered, but still must meet FDA criteria. The CoreValve is implanted through a thin, flexible tube (catheter), that is advanced through an artery in the groin (femoral artery), arm (subclavian artery), or via a small chest incision (aortic). The valve is then delivered inside the diseased natural aortic valve and allowed to expand. As more TAVR valves are approved, it provides additional resources that the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team can consider to treat patients who may not have been treatable before, said Douglas Spriggs, M.D., an interventional cardiologist and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. The TAVR procedure allows for the opportunity of a less invasive procedure, making it an option for patients who do not medically qualify for standard aortic valve replacement surgery, said Lang Lin, M.D., an interventional cardiologist and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. Many factors are considered in the determination of the appropriate procedure for the treatment of advanced aortic valve disease. The valve clinic affords an opportunity for complex patients to be evaluated by an expert multidisciplinary team of physicians.SHINE Volunteers neededVolunteers are currently being sought by Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, March 6, 2014President Barack Obama called Afghan President Hamid Karzais bluff Tuesday.Obama let it be known that because Karzai is unlikely to sign a bilateral security agreement essential to keeping some U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014 he had asked the Pentagon to work on a plan to withdraw all troops before 2015. Obama has good reason to want to cut Karzai off at the knees. Karzai wont sign the security agreement despite unanimous support from the Loya Jirga, a council of elders with political say in Afghanistan. He released 65 Taliban from the Bagram prison despite U.S. protests that the detainees had been involved in attacks that wounded coalition and Afghan forces. The Afghan people have been amazing allies, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon told the National Press Club on Monday. President Karzai has not. Even before the Karzai phone call, McKeon was concerned that Obama might go soft on the mission. In 2008, Obama was something of a hawk on the region. He appalled Hillary Clinton when he said that he would pursue actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets in Pakistan whether President Pervez Musharraf liked it or not. He argued that unlike Iraq, Afghanistan was a war of necessity and the right battlefield. At the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, he pledged, I will end this war in Iraq responsibly and finish the fight against al-Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Toward that end, Obama ordered a surge of 30,000 troops in 2009. Unfortunately, he signaled a lack of resolve when he also announced that he would start to withdraw surge troops in mid-2011. As he wrote in his memoirs, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates concluded that the president doesnt trust his commander, cant stand Karzai, doesnt believe in his own strategy and doesnt consider the war to be his. For him, its all about getting out. McKeon is baffled as to why Obama doesnt talk up the good news coming out of Afghanistan. As the April presidential election looms, major candidates support the security agreement. Afghan national security forces have come a long way, although they still need U.S. support. But with Operation Enduring Freedoms death toll exceeding 2,300, U.S. support is weak. In November 2001, less than 1 in 10 Americans saw the war as a mistake. Now, Gallup reported this month, Americans are as likely to say U.S. military involvement there was a mistake as to say it was not. Tom Umberg, a former Democratic state assemblyman in California and an Afghanistan War veteran, disagrees. We still have a clear national interest there, he told me. At this very moment, there are children attending schools where they are planning to kill Americans and U.S. allies. They are our sworn enemies. The question Americans should ask themselves, he added, is whether they want Afghanistan to return as the petri dish for terrorism that it once was. Obama has every right to demand a signed agreement as a condition for continued but limited U.S. military support. But voters should be aware that if Washington were to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan, the war might be over, but the threat would not.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. Has any Supreme Authority written a book listing the proper and improper ways for us to talk with one another? If so, Ive missed it. Of course, many books exist that teach us how to become a better conversationalist. Im not referring to that skill. What concerns me is the absence of any rulebook that defines when, in a civilized conversation, a person should speak and when to shut the hell up. Have you noticed that today there are very few listeners? These are people who, perhaps in childhood or in a finishing school, were taught to remain silent while the other guy was speaking. If and when silence finally occurred, then it was your turn. No more, or rarely, does conversation work that way. Today, closely observe talkers you know, especially if theyre appearing on a TV or radio program. Youll find few polite listeners. If and when you do identify such persons, theyll be the ones in the corner who everyone ignores. In modern conversation, youd better learn to be an interrupter, and a forceful one. If youre not prepared to cut off the current speakers flow in mid-thought, you might as well just leave. Youre a nobody, a cipher, an odd duck who just sat there. Occasionally I encounter a monologuist (I hope thats a real word). He or she is someone who began chattering at birth and has never really stopped except during sleep or surgery. They dont know how, or why they should listen to another persons thoughts. In such cases, I sometimes carry a kitchen timer or just look at my watch. I make a bet with myself about how long Chatty Kathy or Voluble Vince will blabber on before they run out of air. I sit there confounded that so many words can issue in an unbroken stream from one persons alleged brain. Some folks see nothing wrong with being interrupted in mid-sentence. Thats how real people talk with each other, Driver. Conversation isnt a chess game or a college debate. Its give and take. Maybe so. But most people would rather give than take. Some wit once said, The opposite of talking isnt listening its waiting. I must confess my views on conversation are shaped by how quickly I bore people when its my turn to talk. Im adept at quips, but my narratives plod. I could be giving an eyewitness account of a terrorist attack on the White House, and my listeners would quickly nod off or beg, Bob, please shut up. People interrupt me just to shut me up. Its on the typical TV panel discussion that you see the worst manners and the most interruptions. Example: Five days a week, Whoopi Goldberg and several other celebrity women sit down for a chatterfest known as The View. For the next half-hour or so they proceed to babble on about all sorts of topics, none of which become clear to the viewing audience because none of the panelists is permitted to express a complete thought without being cut off in mid-sentence. This is conversation? Or is it the way show-biz people (male and female) are supposed to talk? A similar gabbing contest can be seen on Fox News each afternoon, on a program called The Five. Several men and women sit around a table to exchange opinions on current events. But what we see and hear is mostly rapid-fire wisecracks and punchlines, and very little solid information on whats happening in the real world. The panelists seem to be on a quota system, with the prize going to whoever can score the most interruptions. I find relief by watching any of several instructive interview programs, such as those hosted by Bill Moyers, Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley. Although these guys will occasionally break in with a noteworthy point, they usually grant their guests the dignity of letting them speak freely. A major victory for civilized conversational restraint was scored recently when CNN fired its prissy, tiresome and often ill-mannered commentator Piers Morgan. Although his lengthy news background fully qualified him to hold his job, Morgans obstreperous interviewing style made me want to flip my TV switch to the Weather Channel or a Jerry Seinfeld re-run. As I write this, rumors say that veteran interviewer Larry King would like to replace Morgan. Millions would welcome that move, Id guess. King was sometimes mocked for his many marriages and pedestrian intellect, but he usually asked interesting common-man questions. Best of all, he allowed his guests to respond. He conducted a genuine talk show, not a fencing match.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net.Politics is a dirty word. Citizen approval for the U.S. Congress has dipped to just 9 percent, down from 14 percent scarcely five months ago. It is the lowest in the history of the Gallop Poll. President Obama, once believed by some to be the nations savior, now has an approval rating of just 41 percent. That figure is expected to slide further as Obama continues to stumble aimlessly through the nations maze of economic, social and other challenges. The state level numbers arent better. Gov. Rick Scott, who reportedly will be spending $100 million of his own money to support his re-election campaign, shows an approval rating of around 30 percent, depending on the poll. He is pitted this November against former Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican turned Independent turned Democrat who has a record of flip-flopping or simply dodging issues. The Florida Legislature should be hiding their collective heads in shame for their own measly average approval rating. Like their federal counterparts, home-grown lawmakers have a reputation for allegedly being bartered by big business and special interest groups. Do Florida lawmakers accept money for their favors? All you need to do is visit the Florida state campaign database at election.dos.state.fl.us/campaignfinance/contrib.asp to see what state representatives are accepting in exchange for their considerations. I will not pinpoint any particular policymaker, but what you will find by entering a name in that database is bound to shock you. The total contributions amounted to staggering sums for the 2012 general election. No doubt money is being exchanged for the 2014 contests. There are reasons why contributors to Pinellas County lawmakers come from places like Fort Myers, Ocala and Jacksonville, along with donors from New Orleans, Indiana, New York, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania. Donors embody law firms, utilities, insurance companies, and the health care, agricultural, pharmaceutical, finance, political organizations and many other special interest groups and lobbyists. Included in the list is American Traffic Solutions Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz. ... the very same folks who bring us all those nifty red light cameras that have sprung up in various municipalities under the guise of traffic safety. And if you dont believe that red light cameras are all about filling municipal coffers, visit www.atsol.com/. Right on the front page of the ATS website it clearly states, Learn more about the economic benefit red-light safety cameras can bring to your community. Note the words economic benefit. Floridas red light camera law, officially known as the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, faces legislative challenges this spring. Although previous attempts to eliminate or harness the cameras have failed, some state lawmakers are again attempting to repeal the law that governs them. During one five-year period (2006-2011) ATS handed out more than $240,000 to candidates for state office and another $1.3 million to lobby state and municipal governments, much of that in the Sunshine State. Florida legislators later killed red-light camera proposals. It should be interesting to see what happens this year. What it all boils down to is that we need new blood in municipal, county, state and federal offices. The same ole, same ole politicians, some of whom bounce from one public office to another over their lifetime, should be replaced by individuals with integrity, openness and unsullied initiatives for Floridas future. The political machine of this state and country needs to stop being oiled by special interests with deep pockets ... so it grinds to a halt and becomes a part of history.Tom Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com. 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey dautrey@TBNweekly.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli accounting@TBNweekly.com Advertising Director: Jay Rey jrey@TBNweekly.com Classied Advertising Manager: Wendy Edwards wedwards@TBNweekly.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.comProduction Manager: David Brown production@TBNweekly.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter webmaster@TBNweekly.com Beach Beacon: Bob McClure bmcclure@TBNweekly.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl alundahl@TBNweekly.com Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Largo Leader: Juliana A.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSTime to ban kite boarding and kite surfing?Editor: Near sunset Feb. 9 at Pass-A-Grill beach a cool, cloudy day was being enjoyed by kite boarders and beachcombers alike Suddenly, with the silent swiftness of the wind, a beach-walking woman was struck from behind by an errant kite boarders rig. Thrown 10 yards garroted by kite wires she was slammed hard to the ground, sustaining multiple cuts, abrasions, contusions, fractures to the right hand and serious shoulder damage. As she lay bleeding, surrounded by shocked bystanders, the kite boarder fled the scene. This mans behavior is unacceptable and may call for kite boarder legislation and enforcement. His acts of maliciousness or incompetence were followed by cowardice or callousness. That cannot be tolerated. Everyone should be able to safely walk the beaches. The excitement and freedom of the kite boarder shouldnt have to be impeded. However, personal freedom and personal responsibility go hand-in-glove. If kite boarders will not be responsible, then they must be regulated. This regulation could include: specific training and certifications, carrying liability insurance, restriction to specific areas or perhaps regulation means banning kite boarders permanently from populated areas. Good. Charles D. Updegrove Falls Church, Va.The cost of Obamacare: Is it too much?Editor: On Dec. 11 a reader wrote a letter to the Tampa Bay Times saying that he was pleased that through the new Affordable Care Act his 26year-old daughter was able to get medical insurance that also included some dental coverage. He lamented that at over $4,000 a year ($340 a month) it was quite expensive. She doesnt qualify for any subsidy because her earnings of $30,000 put her over the threshold. Is the cost too much? Lets pretend the readers daughter is in Ontario, Canada, and earning the same $30,000 where the health care is free. Or is it free? First, she would have to pay more in federal income tax. Her current rate of 11.08 percent would jump to 15 percent. Since Florida doesnt have a state income tax and Ontario does, she would have to deduct another 5.05 percent for the Ontario provincial income tax. Whenever she buys something from a retail store, instead of Floridas low 6 or 7 percent retail sales tax she would be paying 13 percent. Over the course of a year, with everyday purchases, that adds up. If she bought a $30,000 automobile, tack on an extra $2,100 over and above what shed be paying in Florida. Gas for her car would be about $2 more or $5.20 a gallon (converted from liters) and heaven forbid if she likes a little vodka in her orange juice. A 1.75 liter of Smirnoff Vodka can be bought in Florida for $18. The same bottle bought in Ontario is $54. Plus she would be paying sales tax on almost everything from taxicabs to dry cleaning, even lawyers fees. There is no dental or prescription coverage provided by the Ontario plan. She would be purchasing this insurance from an outside source such as Blue Cross, which includes co-pays and would add another $1,008. ($84 a month) to her health care costs. If one were to break down the taxes that a Canadian pays (of any wage and age bracket up to 65) to get his or her free health care, plus having to pay for prescriptions and dental work out of his or her own pocket, it would work out to more than what an American is going to be paying for Obamacare. This is offset by the fact that health coverage in Canada doesnt include deductibles or co-pays. The results are? The American hospitals, especially the for-profit ones, offer the best in the world in the way of technology, equipment, treatment and low wait time, but up till now, it was only for those who had insurance coverage or who could afford it. With the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) most will now qualify for those same benefits. In this writers opinion, Obamacare is certainly a good deal for some 37 plus million Americans. Also, it will reduce the numbers of Americans who go bankrupt for the nonpayment of medical bills. The downside? The insurance companies who administer these programs bring in the premiums and then pay out the medical bills; whats left over, as their profit is 12 billion dollars. Not chump change at all. Imagine if there was a not-for-profit system similar to what the Canadians have and that same 12 billion got poured back into the medical system. It would certainly help.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerIndependence and Aging in PlaceFor many of us boomers, we reflect often on a timeline of goals we wish to achieve and assess what truly nourishes our happiness in looking ahead. Spending time with family, maintaining good health, enjoying a stable work environment, and enjoying our special hobbies are likely at the top of the list. Lets add enjoying our independence to this. We enjoy the freedom to control what we do and where we go which is a blessing, one we take for granted. In our Comfort Keepers in home care business we witness daily the dilemma our senior clients face when they lose what they have owned for so many years, their independence. At one time, they too were in the work force sharing their talents in a career, actively raising families, and enjoyed physical hobbies. Imagine when the day arrives our senior loved ones face physical and/or mental losses. Control is so important to any adult, therefore, the loss of it can create feelings of uselessness, sadness, frustration and even guilt as they do not wish to be a burden to their loved ones. There is no rule book as to how to help your aging parent cope with the loss of independence. Be patient and help them understand this is not a personal failure and reassure them you will do everything you can to keep them engaged with family and friends. The toughest moment is when they can no longer drive. It is a normal function for most us to jump in our car day in and day out. Try to imagine the sense of loss your loved one is feeling by giving up this integral part of their independence. Try to not dismiss their feelings and be there to help with the transition. You can offer your support, encouragement and suggest options of transportation along with offering rides whenever possible. Safety in the home is crucial for your loved one to remain there. A clear path to each room is the best practice. Be sure there are not too many throw rugs or cords to trip on and if there are, secure them. Grab bars in the bathrooms by the shower and the stool are great safety tools. A large percentage of our potential calls are driven from mom or dad need bathing assistance and meal prep. The ability to bathe and cook are two areas that can directly extend the months or years people are able to age in place. Comfort Keepers provides guidance on how to make the home safer as the natural changes of aging come along. We plan physical activities appropriate to each clients health condition from walks to helping around the house. Exercise helps balance and the range of motionWe are here to keep your loved one comfortable and safe in their home.030614"Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength."

MARNIE JACOBOWITZPINELLAS PARK Spc. Robert R. Ortiz Jr., a supply specialist with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, Army Reserve Medical Command, recently competed in ARMEDCOMs prestigious Best Warrior Competition. The event took place Feb. 24-27, 2014. Ortiz, 20, a Pinellas Park soldier, started his intense training for this competition last year when he was selected as alternate. I chose to compete in the Best Warrior Competition to better myself as a soldier, develop confidence and to improve my soldering skills, said Ortiz. He is one of only 13 soldiers of approximately 9,500strong ARMEDCOM Warriors to be selected to compete for this honor. Upon completion of BWC, competitors are afforded the opportunity to attend Fort Bragg Air Assault School. Ortiz, a native of Lockport, Ill., currently resides in Safety Harbor. He is looking forward to taking advantage of this opportunity. The Best Warrior Competition was developed by retired Sergeant Major of the Army Jack Tilley in 2002, testing soldiers physical endurance, military knowledge, and mental perseverance. The competition is an opportunity for Warriors to highlight their military skills in a competitive environment. The grueling four-day event competition taxes each soldier mentally and physically. It includes a timed written exam, physical fitness test, and a number of mentally and physically challenging exercises including day land navigation, urban orienteering courses, road march, weapons qualification on rifles and pistols, hand-tohand combative tournament, tactical combat casualty care, and mystery events. Ortiz began his intense training in preparation for the higher command level competition intended to select the noncommissioned officer and junior enlisted Soldier of the Year for ARMEDCOM. The winner advances to train and prepare through U.S. Army Reserve Command, and upon winning will go on to represent the Army Reserve Command to the Army wide Best Warrior Competition to be held later in the year. The Army Reserve Medical Command has been represented at the top Army event in 2009 by Staff Sgt. Aaron Butler, a medical logistics NCO from Three Forks, Mont., at the Department of the Army level competition. Spc. Robert R.

MonastPodiatric Physician & Surgeon Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons F.D.A. Cleared When am I going to learn?When am I going to learn? How many times do I need to see something to learn that it is real, I should believe it and even depend on it? For example, in our hyper-capitalized society, how much proof do I need to concede that the initial quoted price is not real? The storefront advertises two pair of glasses for $100. But did I want lenses with those new frames? The utilities or cable company rep reassures me that the quoted monthly fee is the true fee. But to get the service, I also will need to pay the swollen list of additional fees. When am I going to learn that there is usually more to it? I have similar questions about dolphin intelligence and their friendliness to man. If a dolphin does the same thing to our research boat on two consecutive surveys, is there more to it than habit? Is the second-timearound behavior the dolphin way to say, I remember what we did before. That was fun! Lets do it again? That certainly could be true of humans. So I have to keep in mind that that explanation could be attributing human traits to an animal unfairly, the offense of anthropomorphism. The goal of the science of animal behavior (ethology) is seeing animals clearly for what they are. That can be difficult. For example, when a dolphin runs through a series of previous behaviors as if on fast-forward, is it ever acknowledging the previous encounter? It was one of those wonderful winter days that reassures us that spring is close. It was clear, calm, beautifully blue, and like San Diego, not warm but not cold. We encountered several pairs of dolphins in short order. En route with the second pair, we spied a third pair going in the other direction. Like cars in opposing lanes on the interstate, the two pairs did not stop and visit. Data done on the second pair, we headed over to the third pair. The smaller of the two, 4-year-old Cutlass, headed over to us as well. He was in a distractible mood. Such dolphins are not engrossed in some on-going activity and are easily attracted to anything going on around them, like nearby boats. Cutlass came over and exhibited a remarkable and engaging set of behaviors, the kind humans love. He got more and more excited; or rather his behaviors become more animated. First, he came up behind the boat and tossed something into the air a couple of times. Distractible dolphins toss all kinds of things (seedpods, small eels, fish, small rays, shells, etc.). However, I did not see any object and the photos revealed only water. Usually, only baby dolphins toss water. Cutlass is long past babyhood. Then he came to the front of the boat and wove under the bow. When we failed to accelerate so he could surf, he returned to the back of the boat and started rolling around. Suddenly he startled and his flukes flipped into the air for a second. Something had goosed him pretty hard. He shot forward underwater and then leapt free of it in a graceful U-turn called a bow. He returned to rolling around at the back of the boat but startled again. Then, in short order, he shot into another graceful bow. But this time it was with his mother, Courtney snapping at his belly. When Cutlass first came over, his mom Courtney had continued swimming toward Johns Pass and the Gulf, their ultimate destination. But she came back and registered her objection to his dawdling by goosing him. That was evidently insufficient to distract him from his tomfoolery at the boat. So she goosed him a second time and finally threatened to T-bone him. Didnt he know that he was supposed to be traveling rhythmically at her side? They had places to go! Cutlass did two more graceful bows (defiantly?), then joined his mother and traveled rhythmically at her side out into the Gulf. Cutlass engaging behavior was not only notable for its dolphin mystique of being friendly toward people. It was also notable as a skillful reference to previous behavior, intentional or not. This was February; we had not seen this pair since October (four months before). I remember that October day well because it was the first time Cutlass engaged our boat clearly and extensively as a mature calf ready to wean instead of a dear but indiscriminate calf (who, like a puppy, loves Photo by ANN WEAVERFour-year-old Cutlass and his mom Courtney demonstrate a typical maternal discipline behavior called the rostral ram-aerial avoid. The errant calf leaps to dodge a collision with his mom. The rostral ramaerial avoid ranges from symbolic, as here, to deadly serious.everybody). His behavior that October day was wonderful to watch. It included object tossing, inspecting the boat, aerial behaviors and gentle play with other youngsters. Consequently, on this fantastic February day, social play was the only missing behavior. I have to wonder if Cutlass remembers that October day too and went so far as to act out his recollections by repeating the highlights of that day. The man who ruptured the wall between humans and other animals, Charles Darwin, thought that the ability to recognize an individual after a considerable passage of time showed the rudiments of a mind. I see way more than basic intelligence in the friendliness of our local bottlenose dolphins, albeit with due caution. However, there is definitely just a bare bones connection between my opening reference to the deceitful prices of our hyper-capitalized society and dolphin psychology: When am I going to learn?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Organizers are confident that the event, one of the Largos premiere social events of the year, will raise the money needed to help with the citys library. Scott Thompson, CEO of the Greater Largo Library Foundation and the chief organizer of the event, explained that the money raised goes straight to the library. We fund programs at the library that the city budget does not cover, he said. We support the English Second Language learning center, we buy mobile carts so people can get around, and we financed the wireless communication system so the employees can communicate without having to go to a phone. Heres how the Art Hop works. Residents pay $35 in advance or $40 at the library door on Saturday at 6 p.m. Then everyone gets on a bus tour to four different locations in the city: McGill Plumbing, Side Door Antiques, Largo Feed Sore and the Pinecrest Retirement Village. At each stop, a different artists work will be on display for those on the bus so they can look over the offerings and purchase something if they wish. By 8 p.m., the tour will conclude back at the library where 25 other artists and performers will be gathered. Georgia artist Jace McTier is the featured artist of the event. Also featured will be Rising Star artist Lisa Bagley, an art teacher from Largo High. Jazz singer Lisa Casalino of Tampa will provide the entertainment for the evening. This years event will include art displays from the students from Largo High, Largo Middle School and Largo Elementary. In addition, there is food sampling and, according to Thompson, a rather large silent auction. We have over 100 items for bid in the auction, he said. There are such things as massage packages, golf packages and boat cruises. McGill Plumbing general manager Shane Wood said he is only too happy to participate in the Art Hop. It is important to get involved in the community, he said. The Largo community has been good to McGill Plumbing for a long time, and now that Im in a position to help, I will. Anything we can do to get people out and about we will do it. I want to help out. Wood is excited about the event even though it may cause a little disruption during business hours. We have a great venue here to host an artist and display the art. It will be good to have people come through here and be part of the festivities, he said. This is the first year Wood will participate in the event, but already he can foresee getting involved next year. I dont see any reason to think I wouldnt get involved, he said. I like what the library foundation is doing and if it is going to help support the local library, then Im all for it. The library foundation started in 1987. This will be the seventh year the foundation has run the Art Hop, bringing in lots of funds to support the library. Were looking at making around $20,000, said Thompson. It is our main fundraiser of the year. As much fun as it sounds, Thompson said it isnt easy to put together the event year after year. It really takes a good group of volunteers about a year to put it together, he said. We will start working on next years event in May. Thompson also is quick to point out that it takes generous sponsors to make it happen as well. In addition to the four participating sponsors, the foundation also has the help of a group of main sponsors. They are: Raymond James, Largo Medical Center, C1 Bank and the Palms of Largo. Thompson said that despite the work that goes into making the event happen, it is all worth it, not just for the monetary return but also for what it does for the community. At the end of the night you feel good, he said. It is a great event where people have a great time, and it is rewarding to see people leave happy knowing they have supported the library and the foundation.

Fred Zinda named 2013 Mr. Seminole By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The Seminole Chamber of Commerce honored several of the communitys top business and civic leaders at the citys most prestigious awards ceremony March 1. For the first time in several years, the Mr./Ms. Seminole banquet was held separately from the Chambers installation event. This years event took place at Holiday Inn Harbourside in Indian Rocks Beach. Jotos Pizza founder Fred Zinda took home the top award of the evening and was named the 2014 Mr. Seminole. Others honored included Marianne Fisher, Boss of the Year; Seminole Goodyear, Business of the Year; and Jean Campbell, Merit Award. Zinda, along with his wife, Carol Zinda, opened Jotos Pizza in Pinellas Park in 1974, initially operating as a Krustys Pizza franchise. The couple opened their Seminole location in 1982. The Zindas have a long history of giving back to the community. Theyve donated food, money and time to a variety of local organizations, including Seminole High School, Blessed Sacrament Church, youth sports teams and a number of civic groups. They also organize holiday gift giving for needy families and over the past 10 years, their annual Dough for the Kids Golf Classic has raised more than $300,000 for All Childrens Hospital. Fred was also previously named Boss of the Year by the Chamber. I am so proud and so humbled, he said after being named Mr. Seminole. Then, he called his wife up to join him at the podium. Who would have ever thought 40 years later wed be here accepting this award from this wonderful community, she said.

This was the first district title the team has won in 26 years. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE With the Pow Wow Parade and Festival set for this weekend, Friday, March 7 through Sunday, March 9, the City Council handled last-minute agreements and contracts associated with the annual event at its Feb. 25 meeting. The council approved performer engagement contracts for the musical acts scheduled to take the stage over the three-day weekend. The following acts had contracts approved: Rebekah Reid, $150; Sean and the Riders, $150; the Troy Duncan Band, $600; the Arthur Z Band, $300; Frank Cannon, $200; and Sounds of Soul, $1,500. Councilor Jim Quinn pointed out that the events sponsors fund these performances. We do not spend one thin dime of taxpayer money for these Pow Wow festivities, he said.The council also appointed the following volunteers to the 2014 Pow Wow Festival and Parade Committee: Bill Barbosa, Tammy Bibelhauser, Tony Kelly, David Kinsey, Harold Kinsey, Gerry Kinsey, Dovile Koveraite, Barbara Allen Liberatore, Dorie Michalik, Greg Michalik, Gerard Milot, Jelene Mingo, Eileen Newsome, Sharon Oliphant, Dottie Reeder, Carolyn Smith, Susan Sousa, By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Though they lost in the second round of the state playoffs to Northport High School, its been the biggest year for Seminole High School boys basketball since the 1980s; for the first time in 26 years, the Warhawks brought home the 7A-9 district title. With a record of 20-4, Coach Josh Walker says the only record better than that was earned in the 1960s, when the team ended the season 21-3. Walker, who graduated from SHS in 1997, said the transformation hes seen since taking over the boys basketball program just five SHS boys basketball celebrates big year See COUNCIL, page 4ACOUNTYWater restrictions extendedAs of March 1, Pinellas County residents can water their lawns and landscape plants twice a week before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. ...

Things really started to turn around the past two years, though, he added. Last year the team ended the season 21-4, and 23-7 in 2012. Both years the Warhawks were district runner-ups, losing each time to St. Petersburg High School by just two and one points, respectively in each district final. Then this season saw a district shakeup. Every two years, the districts are realigned, Walker said. Though theyd face them in a regular season game, Seminole would no longer be contending with SPHS for the title. But Walker was uncertain about how far the team would make it this year. Last year, eight seniors graduated, leaving holes to fill. We were kind of wondering if we were going to have enough firepower to get there again, he said. He began to motivate his players in the off-season with what they referred to as Operation 14 and a goal to make it into the district playoffs again. And Walker put his players to work, as well. Over the season, theyd practice two times a day weight room and drills during the day, scrimmages at night. We work really hard in the off season, he said. Theres a great commitment from both our parents and our students. Seniors Connor Frain and Tanner Cowan stepped up as leaders. Theyre our biggest leaders, Walker said. Theyre very unselfish players, more worried about the team. Meanwhile, two juniors lit up the scoreboard for the Warhawks. Marco Behori led the team in points with about 18 per game, Walker said, and TJ Frounfelter averaged about 13. The teams fans known as The Splash Zone were another motivating factor for the team. The bleachers are full for each game, Walker said, and onlookers wear special T-shirts they had made up, creating a crowd of orange. Theyve taken on their own identity, he said. Theyre great and give us an advantage at home. Nobody wants to have to face us here. Though the season just ended a few weeks ago, Walker and the team are already thinking about next year. They have one goal in mind: winning the district title again. It wont be easy, he said. Though theyre only losing three seniors from his eightplayer rotation of starters, including Frain and Cowan, those players happen to be the teams biggest rebounders and make up the core of its defense. No one person is going to be able to replace any of them, Walker said. People are going to have to step up as a committee. Were losing our height, our defense and our rebounds.Jacob Valentine and Gretchen Wells. A motion to approve a license agreement with the owners of Seminole Mall for use of its parking lot for parade staging was removed from the table because it was not yet prepared, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. The council moved to allow Edmunds to execute the agreement once it was complete. Each year we go through the process with mall ownership to come with an agreement regarding citys use of their property for Pow Wow Parade, Edmunds said. This year, it took a little bit of extra time, he said, and the agreement can take longer to draw up for a number of reasons, especially if there are new owners or attorneys involved. In other action items, the council: authorized a funding request of up to $1,000 for a German delegations March 13 and 14 visit to the city as part of the National League of Cities Urban Fellowship program. The money, taken from the citys contingency fund, will be used to pay for meals at lunch and dinner and travel expenses to and from the airport, and within the city, Edmunds said. The delegation will meet city leaders and employees, tour city facilities and visit St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus. Councilor Plantamura took a similar trip to Germany earlier this year. approved the citys co-sponsorship of the Seminole Kiwanis Clubs Every Child A Swimmer program, which will take place at the Seminole Family Aquatic Center April 14 through May 1. The Kiwanis has conducted this award-winning program for 30 years. reappointed Lisa Pezone and George Tripp to the Developmental Review Board. COUNCIL, from page 1A BASKETBALL, from page 1A Above, Marco Behori (3) led the Warhawks in scoring this season. The junior will be back next season to help the team defend its district title.

Left, Connor Frain (33), goes for a shot while a Tarpon Springs opponent attempts to block him. Cowan and Frain were considered team leaders and defensive stalwarts, said Warhawks coach Josh Walker, and will be missed after they graduate this year.Thankfully, the teams two leading scorers are returning. But nothing is promised, he said. Were going to have to work for it Weve got to get that chemistry back.

Police 5A Police beat14-year-old male shot in SeminoleSEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are investigating an apparent accidental shooting in Seminole that occurred at about 4:20 p.m. on Sunday, March 2, at a private residence located on 134th Way North in Seminole. According to detectives, the victim, 14-year-old Andrew Mills and his 16-year-old friend Matthew Emerick came to Matthews home after baseball practice on Sunday afternoon. While they were in the house, Matthew came into a room where Andrew was to show him a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle. While Matthew was showing Andrew the rifle, he accidentally shot Andrew in the abdomen. Andrew was transported to a local hospital via Bayflite with non-life-threatening injuries. No adults were home at the time of the incident. No charges will be filed against the teen. The investigation continues.U.S. 19 in Tarpon Springs reopens after crashTARPON SPRINGS Traffic returned to normal on U.S. 19 in Tarpon Springs late March 1 after the roadway was closed most of the day due to downed power lines and a multi-vehicle incident with two fatalities. Tarpon Springs police reported that an officer on foot patrol checking businesses in Tarpon Tower heard a loud boom coming from the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and U.S. 19 about 3 a.m. March 1. The officer headed to the area and found downed power lines in the road. He attempted to stop traffic headed southbound on U.S. 19; however, two vehicles unavoidably struck the downed lines, the report said. Jaime E. Alvarado, 18, a worker at a nearby McDonalds, approached the officer and told him that just after the boom, he saw a white vehicle headed northbound and that another red vehicle, also in the northbound lane, had gone airborne into the retention pond on the east side of U.S. 19. Duke Energy was alerted about the three downed power poles and multiple live wires in the area. After Duke Energy turned the power off to the area, an adult male was found next to one of the downed poles with wires over him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police do not yet know if the man was a pedestrian or an occupant of the vehicle found in the pond. Officers noted that the location of the body was in line with where the vehicle went airborne over a 6-foot fence and into the pond. Tarpon Springs police dive team found an adult male seat-belted into the passenger seat of the vehicle in the pond. The drivers seat was empty. No other bodies were found. The vehicle was pulled from the pond and authorities report that it was not red but instead was a silver two-door vehicle. Additional description was being withheld until next of kin was notified. Police reported that only one injury was reported from the two southbound vehicles. Marchelle L. Wallace of Port Richey, 27, was treated and released. The three occupants of the second car from Quebec, Canada, were uninjured. Both vehicles sustained damage.Man arrested for battery on K-9, deputyDUNEDIN A Pinellas County Sheriffs deputy and K-9 are doing OK after suffering injuries while responding to a burglary in progress Friday morning.

Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. According to staff notes, the new facility, to be located at 14790 49th St. in Clearwater, will be an extension of the countys mobile health unit, which is a federally qualified health center that currently serves the homeless population at 12 locations countywide. More specifically, the overall objective of this project is to provide a new health care facility to serve as a patient-centered medical home that uniquely serves the needs of homeless individuals through in-house medical care and social support services, staff said. Plans call for the facility to provide medical and dental care, as well as house a 24-hour medical respite facility to provide convalescent care for clients recently released from a hospital. The project is divided into two phases. Phase 1 will include programming, schematic designs/design development and construction documents to allow for accurate subcontractor bidding and pricing that will be used to come up with a guaranteed lump sum price. Phase 2 is the building construction phase. The commission will approve the lump sum price prior to the start of Phase 2. The building will be constructed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environment Design, aka LEED, recommendations, but due to costs will not be formally certified. Staff said cost of Phase 1 should not exceed $265,942. An additional cost for permits and application fees is estimated at $112,783 for a total cost of $378,725. Total cost of the project Phase 1 and Phase 2 is $4.5 million to be funded by a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Capital Grant, approved May 1, 2012, for $5 million. Health and Community Services Director Gwendolyn Warren told commissioners to continue to qualify for the grant, a decision to move forward had to be made Feb. 25. Commissioners asked a number of questions about the cost of operations and maintenance for the new facility. Paul Sacco, director of Real Estate Management, said O&M costs had been estimated at $150,000 a year. He deferred questions about staffing to Warren. Warren said O&M costs would be paid for from the Health and Community Services budget. She said ongoing negotiations for staffing were continuing with a number of the countys partners that currently provide homeless services, as well as area hospitals. Were working on it, she said. The goal is to get people into treatment. Other sources of funding Warrens staff is looking at include homeless medical assistance programs and federal grants. She said the biggest anticipated shortfall is for equipment needs dental chairs, furniture for exam rooms and the like. Were trying to get grants and manage our resources, she said. She said cost of care would be paid for by Medicaid and private insurance billing and money from the general fund to pay for uninsured clients. Warren and her staff are working on a number of reports that are expected to be complete in May. My big concern is how to pay for this, Commission Chair Karen Seel said. Were still on a wing and a prayer. We had 10 medical homes, now we have five and this will be six, Warren said. I believe we can manage it. She said the grant includes a mandated time line. The county is currently behind about one year. Warren told commissioners if they didnt continue to move the project forward, the money could be lost. This gives me no choice, Seel said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said much of the information the commissioners wanted to know had been provided in past meetings; however, he admitted it might be helpful to have a report that put everything together in one package. Its not firmed up on where the resources are coming from, Seel said. Its not signed, sealed and delivered. It cant be signed, sealed and delivered until approval, Warren replied. She said agreements had been made with some partners, specifically the Juvenile Welfare Board and All Childrens Hospital. I cant promise anything. I really cant, Warren said. The plan is to not come back for resources. It is not my intention as long as Im director to ask for more resources. LaSala suggested scheduling a work session to discuss the details and work that has already been done to secure resources to staff the facility. Seel continued to express her concerns about the complications of realigning resources, saying it could be problematic. The devil is in the details, Warren agreed. Pinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel asks questions Feb. 25 about how staff plans to pay for staffing of a new medical facility to be constructed on 49th Street in Clearwater.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTER County briefsEnrollment opens for ambulance membership planApplications are being accepted through March 31 for the Sunstar FirstCare Ambulance Membership Plan.

Jack Latvala of Clearwater recently received the 2014 Moffitt Momentum Award during Moffitts annual Business of Biotech Conference. The award was created by Moffitt Cancer Center as a way to honor leaders in the community who have championed the efforts of Moffitt and cancer research. It is given to those public servants whose tireless efforts have benefitted the entire institution over the years, and in turn, who have made a difference in the lives of those individuals battling cancer in Florida, said Dr. Alan List, President and CEO of Moffitt Cancer Center. Sen. Latvala was instrumental in passing legislation in 2012 to increase Moffitts share of Floridas cigarette taxes.

We are asking residents to continue to be prudent with their water use, especially outdoor irrigation, at this time. Its important to be mindful of our water supply, said District Chairman Carlos Beruff. The board enacted Phase II Water Shortage restrictions Dec. 17 due to reduced river levels and increasing water supply concerns. Restrictions for lawn watering were expected to continue throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The extended order follows a seasonal feature of Phase II, which recognizes that reasonable lawn irrigation needs may be higher in spring and summer, when days are longer and temperatures are hotter than the winter months, Swiftmud officials said in a press release. Phase II restrictions continue through at least July 31, depending on the amount of rainfall the area receives. Under Phase II, local enforcement requirements continue to be in effect and homeowners associations still may not enforce any deed restrictions in a manner, which could cause an increase in water use. Micro-irrigation and hand watering of non-lawn areas can be done any day, if needed. Watering by any source must be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Swiftmud encourages residents to practice Florida-friendly landscaping principles and to water lawns only when needed. The simplest way to determine if your yard needs water is if your grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least onethird of your yard, appear bluegray, or do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it, according to the press release. The Tampa Bay area relies on the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir during the dry season; however, the reservoir is currently being repaired and is out of service.Lawn watering schedule and timesLawn watering days and times for the twice-per-week schedule are as follows unless a municipality has a different schedule or stricter hours in effect. Call the phone number on your water bill if you have questions. Watering can only be done before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Even addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday Odd addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday Locations without a discernable address, such as rights-ofway and other common areas inside a subdivision, may water on Tuesday and/or FridayNew lawns and plantsNew lawns and plants have a 60-day establishment period. On days one to 30, they may be watered any day of the week. During days 31 to 60, they may be watered approximately every other day. Even-numbered addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Odd-numbered addresses may be watered on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

TORRESLARGO Pianist Sharis Coleman-Derr has been visually impaired since birth. Her struggle to see has been challenging, but isnt the worst fate for the lifetime musician. Music is my thing. Being blind is annoying, but being deaf would be tragic, because then I would have a hard time hearing the music, she said. I cant imagine life without music. To be fair, shes not completely blind. Her retinas were damaged in the womb, an unfortunate side effect to a medicine for morning sickness her mother took when she was pregnant. But her parents didnt realize the damage until Coleman-Derr was about 6 months old. Foreshadowing a life of music, they gave her the middle name Gita, which is Hindi for song, inspired by her grandparents who were missionaries in India. For most of her life, ColemanDerr could see pretty well out of one eye, she said, enough to ride a bike and read textbooks from a closed circuit television. An emergency surgery at age 28 caused further complications. For about six years, ColemanDerr dealt with a cataract slowly thickening in her good eye, making her vision worse. Last January, doctors took the cataract out. But her eye had been dilating more and more over the years to compensate for the cataract When they removed the cataract, my eye was dilated all the time in the daylight. So, it was taking in too much light, which means I dont have enough contrast to see the lines painted on the crosswalks, which makes it very difficult for me to get around now, she said. So Im actually dealing with a new sight change within the last year that makes things even more difficult. A more experimental surgery could either replace her retinas or insert a microchip and neurotransmitter, letting her see via a pair of glasses with cameras that would send the messages directly to her brain. But both approaches are still a long way off in research before they are approved. So for now, Coleman-Derr, 36, deals with the sight she still has. Shes been living on her own since she was 20 and dating an old schoolmate from the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind for longer than that. She enjoys playing at local assisted living facilities and retirement homes. Its a service she picked up when she was visiting her grandparents in an assisted living facility back in Pennsylvania and began playing on the piano. Since then, shes volunteered at the Senior Friendship Center when she lived in Sarasota and locally, at the Grand Villa and, until recently, the Palms of Largos Regal and Cypress Palms. She takes requests, but plays whatever comes to mind, mostly pop songs, romantic melodies and Broadway numbers. Shes particularly fond of the Beatles and artists like Enya. She focuses on positive music, she said, not wanting to waste time on songs with a negative or a woe-is-me message. It was on her grandparents piano the one she still plays on today that she had her first piano lesson. She was about 2 or 3 when she sat down at the piano and began banging on the keys. Her grandfather disciplined her with only spanking I ever received and then explained how she should respect the instrument, she said. From that point on, I thought of the piano as sort of a friend, not just a thing that you bang on, she said. Generally, its sort of a metaphysical belief that when Im playing on the piano, it feels good. The piano feels good; its happy to be of use. I just get that vibration. For a short time when she was 8, Coleman-Derr had a piano teacher who taught her how to play songs by ear. But is mostly self-taught, assembling first the melody of a new song she wants to learn and then accompanying the chords. Aside from the School for the Deaf and Blind, Coleman-Derr attended Manatee College, where she earned an associates degree in psychology. She was a massage therapist for a while, certified in 2003 through the Sarasota School of Massage Therapy. She plays, and also sings, for her church, a local Unitarian Universalist congregation, where shes attended for the last 10 years. In 2006, she decided to put together a CD to help benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Her debut album, which she titled Gita, is made up of her original piano compositions, including her first song Escape, written at a womens retreat; Sunset, written for her brother and Coming home, written for her mother. Coleman-Derr doesnt write songs down physically, so the concept of composing an original song is a bit abstract. She knows that some can get very mathematical with their compositions. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESSharis Coleman-Derr, whose middle name Gita means song in Hindi, plays at her organ in her Largo home.I dont do it that way, she said. For me, its all about hearing the notes. For one of her original songs, she heard the song in her head first. It found its way into a solid melody as she began to plink it out on the piano when she came home. When I write a song, I sit down and figure out the configuration physically on the piano, and then I try to maintain it in memory, she said. If it sticks, then its a song. If it sticks. Coleman-Derr admits that Gita has not sold as well as she would have liked. Shes not the best saleswoman, she said, though those who have bought it, have said the music is very calming. I havent really written anything new in a long time, she said. I like to compose, but I think I have more fun playing songs that I know for an audience. Shes contemplated recording more of her work in another album. But I probably need to sing on that one, she said. To purchase Gita, contact Coleman-Derr at shariscd@tam pabay.rr.com or 366-2291.

The road has been long and difficult, but Platt is happy with the life shes built, she said. Creating and serving food has become her passion. I love what Im doing, she said. I love feeding people. I love making people happy. Visit www.charlietulims.com,www.facebook.com/CharlieTulumsor call 584-TACO. Platt said she hopes to continually expand her customer base at the taco shack. Im hoping that I can propel the business into something that someday will be bigger than the taco shack, she said. Id like to stay here in Largo, build a business here. Im always keeping my eyes open for whats new and whats next and whats going to happen in the future. And, as soon as the Charlie Tulum brand becomes entirely hers, Platt plans on updating the logo. Charlies great; hes awesome. But he is a male and I am female, so I need something that represents me a little more, she said, explaining that the new logo will feature a girl turtle. Though she didnt come up with the mascot of her company, Charlie Tulum has been an appropriate icon to represent Platt. Shes been obsessed with turtles since she started visiting Hawaii once a year for a month at a time and fell in love with swimming alongside them. Locally, shes found herself drawn to the turtles at McGough Nature Center in Largo. Charlie Tulum will be a sponsor and food vendor at the Turtle Trot 5K on April 26, benefiting the center. And there was one other reason Platt was drawn to Charlie Tulum. A couple of years ago, she reconnected with the son whom she bore and gave up for adoption when she was 15. His name is Charlie, and he works as a chef back in Chicago. Thats why its so cosmic, this all coming together in the time By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Once youve cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people on a two-burner stove and a toaster oven, roasting the turkey one piece at a time, serving tacos out of a truck doesnt seem so crazy. Kimberly Platt has always loved to cook and entertain, but in hindsight, that dinner 10 years ago foreshadowed her recent change in careers. I should have known then, she said. Im creative with my space and with what equipment I have available to me. Platt, 42, is the owner of Charlie Tulums Taco Shack and the accompanying Dos Tacos Food Truck. How she came to run a taco and catering business is a serendipitous tale, perhaps only less murky than how a turtle named Charlie made it from Tulum, Mexico, to a home in Indian Rocks Beach. Platt described his journey as smuggled and is careful to avoid the names of his current caretakers. The business named after the Mexican turtle started as a walkup taco window on Indian Rocks Beach. Platt came on as a business partner to help launch the mobile part of taco business. We updated the logo, did a lot of changes, she said. He was supposed to do all the food, and I was doing everything else. The food truck officially began operating Oct. 1. Eleven days later, Platts partner left abruptly during lunch service, mere days before the Dos Tacos Food Truck was scheduled to serve at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday Oct. 16. I had never driven the truck. I had never cooked for that many people, Platt said. So for three days, I didnt even sleep. The trial by fire was managed with the help of some great friends and family, Platt said. She doesnt know how many tacos she served during the event, but it was great advertising for the new business. Everybody that came and ate came back that day and ate again, she said. I have no idea how I did it. Platt leases the building at 707 1/2 First Ave. SW. in Largo. The restriction that she could only be open for lunch at the location was perfect for a food truck business that primarily stayed busy during the evenings. Platt painted the tiny building bright green, trimmed in orange and blue. She decorated the taco shacks yard with colorful patio furniture and planted a garden where she grows fresh basil and parsley that she uses in her tacos. A lot of time and money has been spent here to make this me, she said, sitting with coffee under a green umbrella in the patio area of the taco shack. Ive always had bright, colorful things. It makes you happy youre sitting in happiness. The serene lot a block away from the intersection of West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road and near OShys Irish Tap House is a bit hard to find, she admitted. But its also a great location, because if people want to leave their office and come and hide, they can do that, she said. The taco shack, which offers free Wifi, is open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Charlie Tulums niche is fresh, more organic tacos. Platt, who lives in Dunedin, said she usually stops at Jams Farm Fresh Produce in Largo for ingredients on her way to the taco shack. I shop every morning. I shop as local as I can, Platt said. The taco shack is closed on Mondays because Platt attends classes at the Art Institute of Tampa that day. Shes just two classes away from an associates degree in culinary arts. Restaurant management is a new career field for Platt, but shes always been in the food business and industry in some way, sometimes without even knowing it, she said. Aside from working in restaurants on the beach, she ran a division of her parents food recall and retrieval business, overseeing the representatives that pull products off the shelves. When her parents sold that division, Platt had a rare opportunity to make a scary and crazy change in her life. I had the ability to do anything I wanted to do, she said. At 40 years old when you decide to go back to school, its a whole other ball park. Platt traveled a lot for her previous job one year sleeping in her own bed only 26 nights total. The new lifestyle was supposed to allow her more time at home, around the time that Platt began dating longtime friend and now fiance, Lisa Deliello. My goal is to be home and with her and we have a little puppy as much as possible, because I did travel for so long, so hard, she explained. Nonetheless, Platt has been busy. She probably should have finished school before launching a business, she admitted. But Platt is one who always does everything at once, she said. Shes not sure when shell finish school. Shes taking a semester break to concentrate on Charlie Tulums and plan her beach wedding in March. She and Deliello were the 49th couple to be registered as domestic partners when Pinellas County opened the registry in April. Deliello, whos also finishing up a new degree, often helps Platt on the truck. Catering and the taco truck have been most successful part of the business. When shes not serving from the truck, Platt has a much broader culinary range, specializing in varied selection of bite-size party appetizers she calls smalls. The taco shack also sells more than tacos, offering salads, soups, hot-pressed sandwiches and burritos on its menu as well as changing daily specials. Platt is open to critiques and suggestions, often telling customers, If you like us, tell us on Facebook. If you dont like us, tell us on Facebook. I take any criticism or praise, she said. I havent had too many negative comments. Growth has been steady. Platt began delivering within a two-mile radius of the taco shack about a month ago. She only recently began actively advertising her business. I can feel the business changing. I can feel Largo changing since Ive been here in October, she said. The city officials and leaders have been supportive and welcoming, she said. She recently joined the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and found its members very loyal to one another. Through the chamber, she partnered with Jay Dingman of Barley Mow to bring the truck out for a monthly event on second Thursdays, 6 to 9 p.m. A beer cheese soup she made with Barley Mow beer has already been a sold-out hit.

A second detention deputy has been disciplined failing to immediately report the use of force and misrepresenting the facts of the incident. The incident occurred on Aug. 31, 2013 at the Pinellas County Jail. According to internal affairs investigators, detention deputy Joel De Los Reyes, 51, was assigned to supervise a juvenile pod at the Pinellas County Jail. Investigators say De Los Reyes became engaged in a verbal exchange with one of the inmates over whether the television would remain on or off; and regarding horseplay between inmates. De Los Reyes summoned assistance from detention deputy Adrian Nanu, 49, who entered the housing area through an emergency door, which remained opened and unsecured. At the same time, an inner cell door used to secure the juvenile inmates was left open. Nanu remained outside the emergency doors. De Los Reyes decided to remove the inmate, identified as Steven Valentin, 16, of New Port Richey from the cell. Deputies say he walked him over to the day room, pushed him onto a table. De Los Reyes continued to escort inmate Valentin out toward the emergency door, where Nanu was now entering. As they walked toward the door, De Los Reyes delivered a knee strike and an elbow strike to inmate Valentin. Nenu documented in his supplement initially that inmate Valentin was verbally abusive toward De Los Reyes. Nenu initially indicated that he witnessed the deputy deliver a guided custodial touch to the inmate, but later admitted that this was an inaccurate representation of what had occurred. De Los Reyes failed to report the use of force to his chain of command. He initially stated the inmate was not compliant and that his strike was not excessive. He later admitted to using excessive force. An internal affairs investigation was initiated. De los Reyes resigned while under investigation. The Sheriffs Office Robbery/Homicide Unit, who determined probable cause for arrest, also investigated the case. De Los Reyes turned himself in to the Pinellas County Jail at about 10 a.m. Feb. 24 on charges of battery. He had been employed by the Sheriffs Office since Feb. 27, 2006. Nenu received a seven-day suspension for failing to report the incident to supervision immediately and for misrepresenting the facts of the case. Nenu has been employed by the Sheriffs Office since May 29, 1988. Video of the incident can be viewed at www.TBNweekly.com/con tent_articles/022414_pco-04.txt.

Morton Plant utilizes new Medtronic CoreValveCLEARWATER Two years ago Morton Plant Hospital was the first in the Tampa Bay area to perform an advanced surgical procedure for severe symptomatic aortic stenosis called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). Now, Morton Plant Hospital is expanding its Valve Clinic and TAVR programs with another first, utilizing the newly FDA approved self-expanding Medtronic CoreValve. Morton Plant is the first hospital in the country, not previously involved in the Medtronic research study, to implant the Medtronic CoreValve. The Heart Team at Morton Plant Hospital has now successfully completed six CoreValve implants. TAVR offers an alternative for patients with severe aortic stenosis, who are not considered candidates for conventional open heart surgery. The CoreValve procedure is part of the legacy of firsts for the TAVR program since Morton Plant became the first hospital to bring the procedure to the Tampa Bay area two years ago. The difference with the CoreValve is that it provides an opportunity to treat a broader group of patients, including those with small valves, who previously may not have been able to have the procedure, said Joshua Rovin, M.D., in a press release. Rovin is a cardiovascular surgeon and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. We hope that by utilizing leading edge TAVR treatment and technology, we can provide relief of symptoms, and improve the quality of life for more patients suffering from heart failure due to severe aortic stenosis, said John Ofenloch, M.D., a cardiovascular surgeon and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. In January, the Food & Drug Administration approved the CoreValve. This means that patients do not have to be part of a clinical research trial to be considered, but still must meet FDA criteria. The CoreValve is implanted through a thin, flexible tube (catheter), that is advanced through an artery in the groin (femoral artery), arm (subclavian artery), or via a small chest incision (aortic). The valve is then delivered inside the diseased natural aortic valve and allowed to expand. As more TAVR valves are approved, it provides additional resources that the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team can consider to treat patients who may not have been treatable before, said Douglas Spriggs, M.D., an interventional cardiologist and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. The TAVR procedure allows for the opportunity of a less invasive procedure, making it an option for patients who do not medically qualify for standard aortic valve replacement surgery, said Lang Lin, M.D., an interventional cardiologist and a member of the Morton Plant Hospital Valve Clinic team. Many factors are considered in the determination of the appropriate procedure for the treatment of advanced aortic valve disease. The valve clinic affords an opportunity for complex patients to be evaluated by an expert multidisciplinary team of physicians.SHINE Volunteers neededVolunteers are currently being sought by Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, March 6, 2014President Barack Obama called Afghan President Hamid Karzais bluff Tuesday.Obama let it be known that because Karzai is unlikely to sign a bilateral security agreement essential to keeping some U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014 he had asked the Pentagon to work on a plan to withdraw all troops before 2015. Obama has good reason to want to cut Karzai off at the knees. Karzai wont sign the security agreement despite unanimous support from the Loya Jirga, a council of elders with political say in Afghanistan. He released 65 Taliban from the Bagram prison despite U.S. protests that the detainees had been involved in attacks that wounded coalition and Afghan forces. The Afghan people have been amazing allies, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon told the National Press Club on Monday. President Karzai has not. Even before the Karzai phone call, McKeon was concerned that Obama might go soft on the mission. In 2008, Obama was something of a hawk on the region. He appalled Hillary Clinton when he said that he would pursue actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets in Pakistan whether President Pervez Musharraf liked it or not. He argued that unlike Iraq, Afghanistan was a war of necessity and the right battlefield. At the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, he pledged, I will end this war in Iraq responsibly and finish the fight against al-Qaida and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Toward that end, Obama ordered a surge of 30,000 troops in 2009. Unfortunately, he signaled a lack of resolve when he also announced that he would start to withdraw surge troops in mid-2011. As he wrote in his memoirs, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates concluded that the president doesnt trust his commander, cant stand Karzai, doesnt believe in his own strategy and doesnt consider the war to be his. For him, its all about getting out. McKeon is baffled as to why Obama doesnt talk up the good news coming out of Afghanistan. As the April presidential election looms, major candidates support the security agreement. Afghan national security forces have come a long way, although they still need U.S. support. But with Operation Enduring Freedoms death toll exceeding 2,300, U.S. support is weak. In November 2001, less than 1 in 10 Americans saw the war as a mistake. Now, Gallup reported this month, Americans are as likely to say U.S. military involvement there was a mistake as to say it was not. Tom Umberg, a former Democratic state assemblyman in California and an Afghanistan War veteran, disagrees. We still have a clear national interest there, he told me. At this very moment, there are children attending schools where they are planning to kill Americans and U.S. allies. They are our sworn enemies. The question Americans should ask themselves, he added, is whether they want Afghanistan to return as the petri dish for terrorism that it once was. Obama has every right to demand a signed agreement as a condition for continued but limited U.S. military support. But voters should be aware that if Washington were to withdraw all troops from Afghanistan, the war might be over, but the threat would not.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. Has any Supreme Authority written a book listing the proper and improper ways for us to talk with one another? If so, Ive missed it. Of course, many books exist that teach us how to become a better conversationalist. Im not referring to that skill. What concerns me is the absence of any rulebook that defines when, in a civilized conversation, a person should speak and when to shut the hell up. Have you noticed that today there are very few listeners? These are people who, perhaps in childhood or in a finishing school, were taught to remain silent while the other guy was speaking. If and when silence finally occurred, then it was your turn. No more, or rarely, does conversation work that way. Today, closely observe talkers you know, especially if theyre appearing on a TV or radio program. Youll find few polite listeners. If and when you do identify such persons, theyll be the ones in the corner who everyone ignores. In modern conversation, youd better learn to be an interrupter, and a forceful one. If youre not prepared to cut off the current speakers flow in mid-thought, you might as well just leave. Youre a nobody, a cipher, an odd duck who just sat there. Occasionally I encounter a monologuist (I hope thats a real word). He or she is someone who began chattering at birth and has never really stopped except during sleep or surgery. They dont know how, or why they should listen to another persons thoughts. In such cases, I sometimes carry a kitchen timer or just look at my watch. I make a bet with myself about how long Chatty Kathy or Voluble Vince will blabber on before they run out of air. I sit there confounded that so many words can issue in an unbroken stream from one persons alleged brain. Some folks see nothing wrong with being interrupted in mid-sentence. Thats how real people talk with each other, Driver. Conversation isnt a chess game or a college debate. Its give and take. Maybe so. But most people would rather give than take. Some wit once said, The opposite of talking isnt listening its waiting. I must confess my views on conversation are shaped by how quickly I bore people when its my turn to talk. Im adept at quips, but my narratives plod. I could be giving an eyewitness account of a terrorist attack on the White House, and my listeners would quickly nod off or beg, Bob, please shut up. People interrupt me just to shut me up. Its on the typical TV panel discussion that you see the worst manners and the most interruptions. Example: Five days a week, Whoopi Goldberg and several other celebrity women sit down for a chatterfest known as The View. For the next half-hour or so they proceed to babble on about all sorts of topics, none of which become clear to the viewing audience because none of the panelists is permitted to express a complete thought without being cut off in mid-sentence. This is conversation? Or is it the way show-biz people (male and female) are supposed to talk? A similar gabbing contest can be seen on Fox News each afternoon, on a program called The Five. Several men and women sit around a table to exchange opinions on current events. But what we see and hear is mostly rapid-fire wisecracks and punchlines, and very little solid information on whats happening in the real world. The panelists seem to be on a quota system, with the prize going to whoever can score the most interruptions. I find relief by watching any of several instructive interview programs, such as those hosted by Bill Moyers, Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley. Although these guys will occasionally break in with a noteworthy point, they usually grant their guests the dignity of letting them speak freely. A major victory for civilized conversational restraint was scored recently when CNN fired its prissy, tiresome and often ill-mannered commentator Piers Morgan. Although his lengthy news background fully qualified him to hold his job, Morgans obstreperous interviewing style made me want to flip my TV switch to the Weather Channel or a Jerry Seinfeld re-run. As I write this, rumors say that veteran interviewer Larry King would like to replace Morgan. Millions would welcome that move, Id guess. King was sometimes mocked for his many marriages and pedestrian intellect, but he usually asked interesting common-man questions. Best of all, he allowed his guests to respond. He conducted a genuine talk show, not a fencing match.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71 @comcast.net.Politics is a dirty word. Citizen approval for the U.S. Congress has dipped to just 9 percent, down from 14 percent scarcely five months ago. It is the lowest in the history of the Gallop Poll. President Obama, once believed by some to be the nations savior, now has an approval rating of just 41 percent. That figure is expected to slide further as Obama continues to stumble aimlessly through the nations maze of economic, social and other challenges. The state level numbers arent better. Gov. Rick Scott, who reportedly will be spending $100 million of his own money to support his re-election campaign, shows an approval rating of around 30 percent, depending on the poll. He is pitted this November against former Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican turned Independent turned Democrat who has a record of flip-flopping or simply dodging issues. The Florida Legislature should be hiding their collective heads in shame for their own measly average approval rating. Like their federal counterparts, home-grown lawmakers have a reputation for allegedly being bartered by big business and special interest groups. Do Florida lawmakers accept money for their favors? All you need to do is visit the Florida state campaign database at election.dos.state.fl.us/campaignfinance/contrib.asp to see what state representatives are accepting in exchange for their considerations. I will not pinpoint any particular policymaker, but what you will find by entering a name in that database is bound to shock you. The total contributions amounted to staggering sums for the 2012 general election. No doubt money is being exchanged for the 2014 contests. There are reasons why contributors to Pinellas County lawmakers come from places like Fort Myers, Ocala and Jacksonville, along with donors from New Orleans, Indiana, New York, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania. Donors embody law firms, utilities, insurance companies, and the health care, agricultural, pharmaceutical, finance, political organizations and many other special interest groups and lobbyists. Included in the list is American Traffic Solutions Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz. ... the very same folks who bring us all those nifty red light cameras that have sprung up in various municipalities under the guise of traffic safety. And if you dont believe that red light cameras are all about filling municipal coffers, visit www.atsol.com/. Right on the front page of the ATS website it clearly states, Learn more about the economic benefit red-light safety cameras can bring to your community. Note the words economic benefit. Floridas red light camera law, officially known as the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, faces legislative challenges this spring. Although previous attempts to eliminate or harness the cameras have failed, some state lawmakers are again attempting to repeal the law that governs them. During one five-year period (2006-2011) ATS handed out more than $240,000 to candidates for state office and another $1.3 million to lobby state and municipal governments, much of that in the Sunshine State. Florida legislators later killed red-light camera proposals. It should be interesting to see what happens this year. What it all boils down to is that we need new blood in municipal, county, state and federal offices. The same ole, same ole politicians, some of whom bounce from one public office to another over their lifetime, should be replaced by individuals with integrity, openness and unsullied initiatives for Floridas future. The political machine of this state and country needs to stop being oiled by special interests with deep pockets ... so it grinds to a halt and becomes a part of history.Tom Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com. 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey dautrey@TBNweekly.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli accounting@TBNweekly.com Advertising Director: Jay Rey jrey@TBNweekly.com Classied Advertising Manager: Wendy Edwards wedwards@TBNweekly.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.comProduction Manager: David Brown production@TBNweekly.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter webmaster@TBNweekly.com Beach Beacon: Bob McClure bmcclure@TBNweekly.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl alundahl@TBNweekly.com Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond tgermond@TBNweekly.com Largo Leader: Juliana A.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSTime to ban kite boarding and kite surfing?Editor: Near sunset Feb. 9 at Pass-A-Grill beach a cool, cloudy day was being enjoyed by kite boarders and beachcombers alike Suddenly, with the silent swiftness of the wind, a beach-walking woman was struck from behind by an errant kite boarders rig. Thrown 10 yards garroted by kite wires she was slammed hard to the ground, sustaining multiple cuts, abrasions, contusions, fractures to the right hand and serious shoulder damage. As she lay bleeding, surrounded by shocked bystanders, the kite boarder fled the scene. This mans behavior is unacceptable and may call for kite boarder legislation and enforcement. His acts of maliciousness or incompetence were followed by cowardice or callousness. That cannot be tolerated. Everyone should be able to safely walk the beaches. The excitement and freedom of the kite boarder shouldnt have to be impeded. However, personal freedom and personal responsibility go hand-in-glove. If kite boarders will not be responsible, then they must be regulated. This regulation could include: specific training and certifications, carrying liability insurance, restriction to specific areas or perhaps regulation means banning kite boarders permanently from populated areas. Good. Charles D. Updegrove Falls Church, Va.The cost of Obamacare: Is it too much?Editor: On Dec. 11 a reader wrote a letter to the Tampa Bay Times saying that he was pleased that through the new Affordable Care Act his 26year-old daughter was able to get medical insurance that also included some dental coverage. He lamented that at over $4,000 a year ($340 a month) it was quite expensive. She doesnt qualify for any subsidy because her earnings of $30,000 put her over the threshold. Is the cost too much? Lets pretend the readers daughter is in Ontario, Canada, and earning the same $30,000 where the health care is free. Or is it free? First, she would have to pay more in federal income tax. Her current rate of 11.08 percent would jump to 15 percent. Since Florida doesnt have a state income tax and Ontario does, she would have to deduct another 5.05 percent for the Ontario provincial income tax. Whenever she buys something from a retail store, instead of Floridas low 6 or 7 percent retail sales tax she would be paying 13 percent. Over the course of a year, with everyday purchases, that adds up. If she bought a $30,000 automobile, tack on an extra $2,100 over and above what shed be paying in Florida. Gas for her car would be about $2 more or $5.20 a gallon (converted from liters) and heaven forbid if she likes a little vodka in her orange juice. A 1.75 liter of Smirnoff Vodka can be bought in Florida for $18. The same bottle bought in Ontario is $54. Plus she would be paying sales tax on almost everything from taxicabs to dry cleaning, even lawyers fees. There is no dental or prescription coverage provided by the Ontario plan. She would be purchasing this insurance from an outside source such as Blue Cross, which includes co-pays and would add another $1,008. ($84 a month) to her health care costs. If one were to break down the taxes that a Canadian pays (of any wage and age bracket up to 65) to get his or her free health care, plus having to pay for prescriptions and dental work out of his or her own pocket, it would work out to more than what an American is going to be paying for Obamacare. This is offset by the fact that health coverage in Canada doesnt include deductibles or co-pays. The results are? The American hospitals, especially the for-profit ones, offer the best in the world in the way of technology, equipment, treatment and low wait time, but up till now, it was only for those who had insurance coverage or who could afford it. With the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) most will now qualify for those same benefits. In this writers opinion, Obamacare is certainly a good deal for some 37 plus million Americans. Also, it will reduce the numbers of Americans who go bankrupt for the nonpayment of medical bills. The downside? The insurance companies who administer these programs bring in the premiums and then pay out the medical bills; whats left over, as their profit is 12 billion dollars. Not chump change at all. Imagine if there was a not-for-profit system similar to what the Canadians have and that same 12 billion got poured back into the medical system. It would certainly help.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerIndependence and Aging in PlaceFor many of us boomers, we reflect often on a timeline of goals we wish to achieve and assess what truly nourishes our happiness in looking ahead. Spending time with family, maintaining good health, enjoying a stable work environment, and enjoying our special hobbies are likely at the top of the list. Lets add enjoying our independence to this. We enjoy the freedom to control what we do and where we go which is a blessing, one we take for granted. In our Comfort Keepers in home care business we witness daily the dilemma our senior clients face when they lose what they have owned for so many years, their independence. At one time, they too were in the work force sharing their talents in a career, actively raising families, and enjoyed physical hobbies. Imagine when the day arrives our senior loved ones face physical and/or mental losses. Control is so important to any adult, therefore, the loss of it can create feelings of uselessness, sadness, frustration and even guilt as they do not wish to be a burden to their loved ones. There is no rule book as to how to help your aging parent cope with the loss of independence. Be patient and help them understand this is not a personal failure and reassure them you will do everything you can to keep them engaged with family and friends. The toughest moment is when they can no longer drive. It is a normal function for most us to jump in our car day in and day out. Try to imagine the sense of loss your loved one is feeling by giving up this integral part of their independence. Try to not dismiss their feelings and be there to help with the transition. You can offer your support, encouragement and suggest options of transportation along with offering rides whenever possible. Safety in the home is crucial for your loved one to remain there. A clear path to each room is the best practice. Be sure there are not too many throw rugs or cords to trip on and if there are, secure them. Grab bars in the bathrooms by the shower and the stool are great safety tools. A large percentage of our potential calls are driven from mom or dad need bathing assistance and meal prep. The ability to bathe and cook are two areas that can directly extend the months or years people are able to age in place. Comfort Keepers provides guidance on how to make the home safer as the natural changes of aging come along. We plan physical activities appropriate to each clients health condition from walks to helping around the house. Exercise helps balance and the range of motionWe are here to keep your loved one comfortable and safe in their home.030614"Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength."

MARNIE JACOBOWITZPINELLAS PARK Spc. Robert R. Ortiz Jr., a supply specialist with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, Army Reserve Medical Command, recently competed in ARMEDCOMs prestigious Best Warrior Competition. The event took place Feb. 24-27, 2014. Ortiz, 20, a Pinellas Park soldier, started his intense training for this competition last year when he was selected as alternate. I chose to compete in the Best Warrior Competition to better myself as a soldier, develop confidence and to improve my soldering skills, said Ortiz. He is one of only 13 soldiers of approximately 9,500strong ARMEDCOM Warriors to be selected to compete for this honor. Upon completion of BWC, competitors are afforded the opportunity to attend Fort Bragg Air Assault School. Ortiz, a native of Lockport, Ill., currently resides in Safety Harbor. He is looking forward to taking advantage of this opportunity. The Best Warrior Competition was developed by retired Sergeant Major of the Army Jack Tilley in 2002, testing soldiers physical endurance, military knowledge, and mental perseverance. The competition is an opportunity for Warriors to highlight their military skills in a competitive environment. The grueling four-day event competition taxes each soldier mentally and physically. It includes a timed written exam, physical fitness test, and a number of mentally and physically challenging exercises including day land navigation, urban orienteering courses, road march, weapons qualification on rifles and pistols, hand-tohand combative tournament, tactical combat casualty care, and mystery events. Ortiz began his intense training in preparation for the higher command level competition intended to select the noncommissioned officer and junior enlisted Soldier of the Year for ARMEDCOM. The winner advances to train and prepare through U.S. Army Reserve Command, and upon winning will go on to represent the Army Reserve Command to the Army wide Best Warrior Competition to be held later in the year. The Army Reserve Medical Command has been represented at the top Army event in 2009 by Staff Sgt. Aaron Butler, a medical logistics NCO from Three Forks, Mont., at the Department of the Army level competition. Spc. Robert R.

MonastPodiatric Physician & Surgeon Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgeons F.D.A. Cleared When am I going to learn?When am I going to learn? How many times do I need to see something to learn that it is real, I should believe it and even depend on it? For example, in our hyper-capitalized society, how much proof do I need to concede that the initial quoted price is not real? The storefront advertises two pair of glasses for $100. But did I want lenses with those new frames? The utilities or cable company rep reassures me that the quoted monthly fee is the true fee. But to get the service, I also will need to pay the swollen list of additional fees. When am I going to learn that there is usually more to it? I have similar questions about dolphin intelligence and their friendliness to man. If a dolphin does the same thing to our research boat on two consecutive surveys, is there more to it than habit? Is the second-timearound behavior the dolphin way to say, I remember what we did before. That was fun! Lets do it again? That certainly could be true of humans. So I have to keep in mind that that explanation could be attributing human traits to an animal unfairly, the offense of anthropomorphism. The goal of the science of animal behavior (ethology) is seeing animals clearly for what they are. That can be difficult. For example, when a dolphin runs through a series of previous behaviors as if on fast-forward, is it ever acknowledging the previous encounter? It was one of those wonderful winter days that reassures us that spring is close. It was clear, calm, beautifully blue, and like San Diego, not warm but not cold. We encountered several pairs of dolphins in short order. En route with the second pair, we spied a third pair going in the other direction. Like cars in opposing lanes on the interstate, the two pairs did not stop and visit. Data done on the second pair, we headed over to the third pair. The smaller of the two, 4-year-old Cutlass, headed over to us as well. He was in a distractible mood. Such dolphins are not engrossed in some on-going activity and are easily attracted to anything going on around them, like nearby boats. Cutlass came over and exhibited a remarkable and engaging set of behaviors, the kind humans love. He got more and more excited; or rather his behaviors become more animated. First, he came up behind the boat and tossed something into the air a couple of times. Distractible dolphins toss all kinds of things (seedpods, small eels, fish, small rays, shells, etc.). However, I did not see any object and the photos revealed only water. Usually, only baby dolphins toss water. Cutlass is long past babyhood. Then he came to the front of the boat and wove under the bow. When we failed to accelerate so he could surf, he returned to the back of the boat and started rolling around. Suddenly he startled and his flukes flipped into the air for a second. Something had goosed him pretty hard. He shot forward underwater and then leapt free of it in a graceful U-turn called a bow. He returned to rolling around at the back of the boat but startled again. Then, in short order, he shot into another graceful bow. But this time it was with his mother, Courtney snapping at his belly. When Cutlass first came over, his mom Courtney had continued swimming toward Johns Pass and the Gulf, their ultimate destination. But she came back and registered her objection to his dawdling by goosing him. That was evidently insufficient to distract him from his tomfoolery at the boat. So she goosed him a second time and finally threatened to T-bone him. Didnt he know that he was supposed to be traveling rhythmically at her side? They had places to go! Cutlass did two more graceful bows (defiantly?), then joined his mother and traveled rhythmically at her side out into the Gulf. Cutlass engaging behavior was not only notable for its dolphin mystique of being friendly toward people. It was also notable as a skillful reference to previous behavior, intentional or not. This was February; we had not seen this pair since October (four months before). I remember that October day well because it was the first time Cutlass engaged our boat clearly and extensively as a mature calf ready to wean instead of a dear but indiscriminate calf (who, like a puppy, loves Photo by ANN WEAVERFour-year-old Cutlass and his mom Courtney demonstrate a typical maternal discipline behavior called the rostral ram-aerial avoid. The errant calf leaps to dodge a collision with his mom. The rostral ramaerial avoid ranges from symbolic, as here, to deadly serious.everybody). His behavior that October day was wonderful to watch. It included object tossing, inspecting the boat, aerial behaviors and gentle play with other youngsters. Consequently, on this fantastic February day, social play was the only missing behavior. I have to wonder if Cutlass remembers that October day too and went so far as to act out his recollections by repeating the highlights of that day. The man who ruptured the wall between humans and other animals, Charles Darwin, thought that the ability to recognize an individual after a considerable passage of time showed the rudiments of a mind. I see way more than basic intelligence in the friendliness of our local bottlenose dolphins, albeit with due caution. However, there is definitely just a bare bones connection between my opening reference to the deceitful prices of our hyper-capitalized society and dolphin psychology: When am I going to learn?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Organizers are confident that the event, one of the Largos premiere social events of the year, will raise the money needed to help with the citys library. Scott Thompson, CEO of the Greater Largo Library Foundation and the chief organizer of the event, explained that the money raised goes straight to the library. We fund programs at the library that the city budget does not cover, he said. We support the English Second Language learning center, we buy mobile carts so people can get around, and we financed the wireless communication system so the employees can communicate without having to go to a phone. Heres how the Art Hop works. Residents pay $35 in advance or $40 at the library door on Saturday at 6 p.m. Then everyone gets on a bus tour to four different locations in the city: McGill Plumbing, Side Door Antiques, Largo Feed Sore and the Pinecrest Retirement Village. At each stop, a different artists work will be on display for those on the bus so they can look over the offerings and purchase something if they wish. By 8 p.m., the tour will conclude back at the library where 25 other artists and performers will be gathered. Georgia artist Jace McTier is the featured artist of the event. Also featured will be Rising Star artist Lisa Bagley, an art teacher from Largo High. Jazz singer Lisa Casalino of Tampa will provide the entertainment for the evening. This years event will include art displays from the students from Largo High, Largo Middle School and Largo Elementary. In addition, there is food sampling and, according to Thompson, a rather large silent auction. We have over 100 items for bid in the auction, he said. There are such things as massage packages, golf packages and boat cruises. McGill Plumbing general manager Shane Wood said he is only too happy to participate in the Art Hop. It is important to get involved in the community, he said. The Largo community has been good to McGill Plumbing for a long time, and now that Im in a position to help, I will. Anything we can do to get people out and about we will do it. I want to help out. Wood is excited about the event even though it may cause a little disruption during business hours. We have a great venue here to host an artist and display the art. It will be good to have people come through here and be part of the festivities, he said. This is the first year Wood will participate in the event, but already he can foresee getting involved next year. I dont see any reason to think I wouldnt get involved, he said. I like what the library foundation is doing and if it is going to help support the local library, then Im all for it. The library foundation started in 1987. This will be the seventh year the foundation has run the Art Hop, bringing in lots of funds to support the library. Were looking at making around $20,000, said Thompson. It is our main fundraiser of the year. As much fun as it sounds, Thompson said it isnt easy to put together the event year after year. It really takes a good group of volunteers about a year to put it together, he said. We will start working on next years event in May. Thompson also is quick to point out that it takes generous sponsors to make it happen as well. In addition to the four participating sponsors, the foundation also has the help of a group of main sponsors. They are: Raymond James, Largo Medical Center, C1 Bank and the Palms of Largo. Thompson said that despite the work that goes into making the event happen, it is all worth it, not just for the monetary return but also for what it does for the community. At the end of the night you feel good, he said. It is a great event where people have a great time, and it is rewarding to see people leave happy knowing they have supported the library and the foundation.
