By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Improvements for the Park Street/Starkey Road corridor have been a part of Pinellas Countys Comprehensive Plan since 1989. Until recently, the project consisted of building a six-lane divided roadway from Tyrone Boulevard to East Bay Drive. But now county staff is proposing new parameters they say will better meet current needs. Al Bartolotta, section manager with the countys Planning Department and Metropolitan Planning Organization, updated commissioners during the March 18 regular meeting on recommendations from a consultant team asked to reevaluate the project. He showed a chart of 2010 traffic projections made in 1989 and real numbers from 2012. The most drastic change, down by 91 percent, was the estimate for the Tyrone Boulevard to Park Boulevard segment. In 1989, experts projected the annual average daily traffic on that segment would increase to 46,900. Actual numbers in the Pinellas County 2012 LOS (level of service) Report showed an AADT of 24,500. Those same experts projected an AADT of 39,800 for the Park Boulevard to Bryan Dairy Road segment. Numbers reported in 2012, showed a 45 percent decrease to 27,400. Thats a big difference in numbers, Bartolotta said. The downward trend in traffic coincides with the decline in the countys population from 2000 to 2010. Meanwhile came the economic downturn and there was no money to implement the project and it stalled. So staff took the opportunity to revisit the project with help from the design consultant. Bartolotta used a map to show significant areas near the corridor where people live in poverty. Those people are not driving, he said. Theyre utilizing the bus, biking and walking. An analysis of the corridor revealed areas with no sidewalks, some with no contiguous sidewalks and bus stops that consist of just signs sitting on swells, he said. He pointed out that there were other modes of travel besides cars and safety had to be a primary concern. Six lanes dont mix well with safety, he said. Ken Jacobs, manager with the countys Traffic Division, said the corridor study involved creating balance to solve congestion and capacity problems. Staff now believes capacity enhancements can be made without making the entire corridor six lanes. He pointed out that transitions between six lanes and four lanes and around intersections would be critical. Its a balancing act the need for capacity and the need for pedestrians and bicyclists, he said. Staff is focused on making sure investments already made for the project are being used. These investments include prior design plans, permits and rights of way already purchased. Consultant Chris Lovett with Engineering Services URS Corporation in Tampa explained proposed plans for the different segments. The design maintains a minimum 19.5 median width for separation of the two-way traffic and provides left-turn lanes. The minimum lane width is 11 feet. The existing stormwater conveyance system will be used. Bus pads and connecting sidewalks will be incorporated. A continuous sidewalk along each side of the corridor away from the curb where right of way permits also is included, as are continuous bike lanes along each side of the road. Five intersections are targeted for capacity improvements, including Park Street at Tyrone Boulevard, Park Street at Park Boulevard, Starkey Road at Bryan Dairy Road, Starkey Road at Ulmerton Road and Starkey Road at East Bay Drive. The intersections are currently failing or will fail in the future, staff said. The goal is to improve the capacity at the intersection but not overbuild the links between. Transitions from the intersections to the narrow links are critical. The 7.5-mile project is divided into six segments with Segment 1 divided into three with sub-segments. County and MPO staff have been working with the cities of Seminole and Largo to address concerns. The section of Park Street from Tyrone Boulevard to north of 86th Avenue North, primarily on the west side, is adjacent to land within the city of Seminole. The section of Starkey Road from south of Ulmerton Road to East Bay Drive goes through the city of Largo. The remainder is located in unincorporated Pinellas.The segments Segment 1A runs from Tyrone Boulevard to See PARK STREET/STARKEY ROAD, page 7A See RADIO, page 9A Sweetbay grocery stores switching to Winn-DixieBi-Lo Holdings LLC, the parent company of BI-LO and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, has announced it will begin to rebrand six Pinellas County Sweetbay stores into Winn-Dixie stores. The stores will close on April 5 and reopen on April 11. The stores affected are in Seminole at 10202 Seminole Blvd., St. Pete Beach, 7625 Blind Pass Road; South Pasadena, 6851 Gulfport Blvd. It also affects three St. Petersburg stores at 2139 34th St. N., 7491 Fourth St. N., and 3327 Ninth St. N. The six Pinellas stores are among 18 in the Tampa Bay area to make the change. Upon reopening as a Winn-Dixie, we believe customers will be pleasantly surprised to see that we have been working hard to provide the fresh, quality products they want at prices they can afford, said Joey Medina, Winn-Dixies regional vice president. Plus, we will offer a suite of in-store savings programs, like the fuelperks! Reward Program, which lets customers earn incredible savings at participating Shell stations every time they shop with their Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card. Other savings programs include: The Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card, which is a free membership card that allows customers to take advantage of deals when presented at checkout; Dependable Deals that freeze prices on hundreds of essential items for a 10-week period; $4 and $10 generic prescription savings, plus discounts on many name-brand medications; Weekly savings solutions through Buy One, Get One Free items, 10 for $10 and Meal Deals, which offers great prices on a variety of fresh meal packs for the family; and e-coupons, which are a way to load savings to Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card and have them redeemed automatically with a swipe of the card at the register. While the name on the storefronts is changing, the people running them dont have to, said Medina. Weve invited Sweetbay associates to join the Winn-Dixie family and look forward to exchanging what it means to be local as we work together to run even greater stores. Bi-Lo Holdings LLC, the parent company of BI-LO and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, is the ninth-largest conventional supermarket chain in the United States based on net sales. The company employs nearly 60,000 associates who serve customers in 686 grocery stores and 482 in-store pharmacies throughout the eight southeastern states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Pink balloons. Pink banners. Pink labels on grocery items. It was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; its hard to go anywhere without being overwhelmed by pink in October. The 10-year-old asked his mother why there was so much visible support for breast cancer but none for childhood cancer awareness. The month prior, doctors had discovered a tumor on his brain stem, and at the time of the shopping trip, Ethan was only a month into 35 rounds of radiation treatment. His mother, Natalie Fabac, didnt have an answer for him. But when she went home and did some research, she learned that September had been National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. And I had no idea, she said. And I had a child just diagnosed with cancer. So think of all the people out there who dont know about it.So she decided to do something.

Two were baseball games, the USF Bulls and the Tampa Bay Rays, and the other two were my girls softball games. As I was thinking about the games, I was reminded about how good it is for kids to be involved in sports. My two daughters have been playing sports since they were 4 and 5 years old. The first sport they wanted to play was tennis. I think they started out with tennis because their cousins played tennis. The next sport was soccer, then T-ball, baseball and this year, theyre playing softball. Being in sports has helped my girls in so many ways. They learn how to win and to lose. They learn how to play as a team and as an individual. They learn how to work for a goal. They also learn camaraderie and sportsmanship. Another benefit is they are exercising. Since my kids are young, only 8 and 9 years old, they are still learning how to play. This is the first year they have played softball. Most of the kids on the team are learning the positions, how to throw, pitch and catch. In just a few weeks, I have already seen an improvement. My husband and I always try to encourage our kids. Sometimes they get upset if they strike out, dont get a hit or make a bad play. While we were at the Rays spring training game, we were able to show the girls that even the professionals strike out and dont get hits every time. They even make errors, but they dont let it get them down and they get right back in the game. My daughter Graci and I attended the USF baseball game to watch one of my sisters sing the national anthem. While we were there, we not only saw the baseball game, but also had the chance to see the girls softball team play for a few minutes. It was a great chance to tell my daughter that if she gets good enough, she could get a scholarship and play softball for college if she wants. By the way, if you havent been to USF for a game, its pretty neat how the baseball and softball fields are right next to each other. The stadiums are beautiful and kids get in free to the games. Its a wonderful experience. Graci even got to be the kid announcer during the fourth inning and go into the press box to announce the Bulls players who were batting that inning. That made her day! I know from my own experience that when I was playing sports and going to school, I didnt have time to do much else. I played soccer, basketball and softball. I wasnt good enough to go to college on a scholarship, but I still enjoyed playing. I think it was even more important for kids to play sports in middle and high school because those are the years that kids seem to get into trouble if they dont have anything to do. When you are involved in sports, you dont have time to be bored and get into trouble. The other good thing is you have to keep up your grades to play sports. Most kids like playing sports, so they get good grades. I encourage parents to help your kids find a sport they like to do, whether its a team sport or an individual sport. It can make a big difference in your childs life.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog atMom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot .com.

An Eagle Scout Court of Honor and dinner will honor Anthony and two other Scouts Saturday, April 5, at Blessed Sacrament banquet hall in Seminole. For his Eagle Scout project, Anthony designed, built and installed six park benches along the Preservation 2000 nature trail just east of the Botanical Gardens in Largo. He coordinated the Scout troop and volunteers to complete the project. Anthony joined the Cub Scouts along with his father, who also is an Eagle Scout, when he was in the first grade. Through the years, they were involved in numerous community projects and camp-outs and had the honor to attend the 100th anniversary of The Boy Scouts of America in 2010 at the National Scout jamboree, at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. Eagle Scouts are required to earn 21 merit badges to complete the requirements necessary to achieve this highest honor in scouting. Anthony exceeded this by earning a total of 39 badges and also held many positions within Troop 431 such as scribe, patrol leader and mentor. While involved in scouting, Anthony also played saxophone in the Seminole Middle and Seminole High School bands. For three of his four years in high school, he played football for the Seminole Warhawks. Anthony plans to continue his education in exercise science and business management at St. Petersburg College and the University of South Florida.Photo by KADI HENDRICKS TUBBSGraci Tubbs, center, helped announce the lineup during the fourth inning of the USF Bulls Baseball game on March 16.

Mom 2 MomKadi Hendricks Tubbs Seminole student earns Eagle Scout rank Anthony Zsido CANCER, from page 1A Ethan Fabac, a fifth-grader at Seminole Elementary School, is recovering from brain cancer. His battle with the illness is his mothers inspiration for a Sept. 13 walk at the recreation center to raise awareness of childhood cancer.leading cause of death by disease in children and adolescents in the United States. That night made me realize that I had to do something to support my son, Natalie said. Theres a lot of children with cancer and you just dont know it. These kids need to know they have the support. Now shes on the hunt for local businesses to sponsor what she hopes will become an annual event.A mother knows It all started with a headache and a trip to the emergency room last August. Doctors didnt find anything major wrong with Ethan, though, and sent him home. Weeks later, he had another bad headache, which led to another ER visit. Both times he was misdiagnosed and sent home, Natalie said. But a mother knows her son best. During his third emergency room visit, she insisted Ethan have an MRI. She had researched brain tumors and had a gut feeling that something wasnt right with her son. They discovered a tumor, a Grade II Ependymoma, growing on his brain stem. He was diagnosed on Sept. 3 and was in surgery at All Childrens Hospital by the next day. After I found out I had to have surgery, I was super scared, Ethan said. But then they told me I would be asleep for it and I felt better about it. Hes so tough, Natalie said. Hes stayed stronger than his Mommy through all of this.TreatmentAfter surgery, the radiation treatments began. Several times a week, Natalie would take Ethan to Tampa for treatments, worrying the whole time about whether the tumor would grow back. But what Ethan remembers the most from these trips is the snarling rush hour traffic. We had to drive so far for it, he said. And the traffic was so bad. It took forever to get there and to get home. Natalie considered entering him into clinical trials, but backed out when she learned they werent usually effective on Ethans type of cancer. At the time, he was entering fifth grade at Seminole Elementary School. Following surgery, he had to be homeschooled. But he made principals list, Natalie said. And since going back in January, he hasnt missed a single day of school. Friends visited him at home, and they distracted him with the things 10-year-old boys like to do: playing video games, fishing. In fact, grabbing a rod and reel and heading to local docks with friends and family became his favorite pastime. [Fishing] started to click for me, he said. I just started catching a lot of things. And he likes to show off his battle wound a scar that begins at the nape of his neck and travels upwards several inches. Physically hes doing pretty well now, Natalie said. But he needs to have his brain scanned every three months. We have to live month to month with the scans for the next five years, she said. I have to keep an eye on him. Im always on edge. Every headache becomes something more.AshleyCan FoundationThroughout Ethans illness, social media has been a life support for Natalie. In various online forums and Facebook groups, shes met other moms with children battling cancer around the country, many with the exact same cancer Ethan had. One of the women she met was Maureen Montgomery, whose daughter, Ashley Montgomery, also was diagnosed with Ependymoma. The Montgomery family lives in Illinois, about 50 miles south of Chicago. In 2001, when Ashley was 9, doctors discovered a tumor growing on Ashleys brain stem. They did everything right: surgery, radiation, brain scans every three months, then every six months, and as Ashley got older, just once a year. Ashley was cancer-free for nearly seven years, when they discovered the tumor had grown back. She was 16, just months shy of turning 17, and the doctors were surprised it had returned. This time around they treated it even more aggressively, Maureen said, but there was always the chance that the treatment itself could kill her daughter. And much like Natalie, Maureen didnt know that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and that the cause has adopted the color gold, much like breast cancer uses pink, to rally support. When she learned this, she wanted to do more. In 2009, Maureen formed the AshleyCan Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The organization held its first fundraiser, a 5K race, in 2011. All of the proceeds go to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, the world leader in childrens cancer research. Ashley, today 23, is vice president of the foundation, frequently speaks at childhood cancer awareness events and is attending college. Though Ashley is cancer free now, the family is still determined to help the cause. Were trying to make even a little bit of a difference so no other family has to go through what we went through, Maureen said. And now shes branching out to other states. Childhood cancer has no state lines; it has no boundaries, she said. Natalies Seminole event is the first out-of-state event Maureen is helping to organize. The Sept. 13 walk will coincide with the Illinois event and National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day.Getting organizedThough shes overwhelmed by the scope of what shes trying to accomplish, Natalie is determined. Ive never done anything like this before, she said. But we need something like this in Seminole. We need to raise money for [childhood cancer] research and awareness of the need for funding. She added, I wish we didnt have to be part of something like this. But we need to raise awareness for our community. Shes already booked space at the citys Holland G. Mangum Recreation Complex for the Sept. 13 walk. And through social media, shes found some help locally. Jamie Smitte, whose father succumbed to cancer two years ago and founded Quilts of Hope, which makes quilts for children with cancer, has offered her assistance. Both she and Maureen have been amazing, Natalie said. Theyve been absolutely wonderful. Now shes seeking local business sponsors to step up and support their cause shes been knocking on doors and making cold calls as well as volunteers for the day of the race. Were hoping its a huge event, she said. Were just hoping we can pull it off. For more information about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, email Natalie at prayersforethan@live.com.

TORRESLARGO Computer equipment valued at $59,805 was delivered to a home in Canada Feb. 19 before Tech Data, an international IT distributor based in Largo, realized their customer had been a victim of a Russian cybercrime. The company has Largo police detectives to thank for helping to recover more than $20,000 of the equipment before it was shipped overseas, likely to Russia or possibly Ukraine, said Tech Data fraud manager Scott Heim. The scam started with a Zeus virus or a similar variant that infected one of their customers computers, Heim said. The virus, specifically a keylogger Trojan, was designed to track keystrokes and relay the user names and passwords, even online banking credentials, back to the cybercriminals, who then were able to log on to Tech Data Canadas website as the victim and place an order using their account. Heim said its a problem the company has been dealing with in the United States and Canada for about two years. All the major tech distributors are dealing with the same activity, he explained. In fact, any company that provides electronic commerce access for its customers has to defend against these types of attacks, he said. Rarely, however, is such an attack on Tech Datas websites successful. We catch almost all of them. Its less than 1 percent that actually get fulfilled, Heim said. Slips though, occasionally will occur, and its nice to know that we have partners with law enforcement that can jump on this for us. In this case, the order requesting 50 different items was placed Feb. 17 and shipped to a home in Laval, Quebec, later that day. When Tech Data identified the order as fraudulent, the company contacted UPS to try to stop the delivery, but the equipment had already arrived about an hour beforehand, at 8:04 a.m. Feb. 19. The company contacted the Largo Police Department to help intercept the stolen merchandise. Canadian authorities usually are reluctant to take up a case based on a private referral, Heim said. So Largos Detective Lara Young coordinated with police officials in Canada to obtain a search warrant at the address of the delivery. Canadian authorities arrested two people and were able to recover some of the stolen computer equipment, according to Largo police. Police Lt. Stephen Slaughter said he was proud of the investigative services division for their quick action. They jumped on the case within hours or the rest of the shipped equipment would have been gone, he said. More than $30,000 worth of equipment was not recovered from the Quebec home. Its our belief that its already gone to Russia, and theres not been great cooperation with the Russian authorities, Slaughter said. Heim said that in his experience tracing similar attacks through email communications and IP addresses, they almost always tie back to locations in Russia, typically in the St. Petersburg area. The two who were arrested arent cooperating, meaning that the equipment still unaccounted for likely wont be recovered, Heim said, though Canadian authorities continue to investigate. We want businesses to be aware and maintain their virus protection software. This is what can happen, Slaughter said. Offenders know that time is on their side. The two who were arrested are most likely unwitting participants in the scheme, charged with receiving the equipment and reshipping it overseas in a work-at-home set-up, Heim said. Its likely they wont know much of those behind the fraud anyway, Slaughter said. They wouldnt want somebody to have that much intimate knowledge, he explained. Heim said Tech Data has a system in place to track its customers order trends. An atypical order that is sent via expedited shipping to a residential address, as opposed to a business, will be flagged for manual review. If its found to be fraud, it will be canceled. Tech Data will follow up with its customer in this particular case, a Canadian IT reseller to let them know theyve been infected with a virus and walk them through what needs to be done to fix it. We would warn them too, its not just going to be Tech Data, but their other supplier accounts, Heim said. Cybercriminals usually order equipment like laptop computers, processors and hard drives. Since whatever they obtain is almost 100 percent profit, they can sell the equipment for prices dramatically less than their real worth. Theyre obviously selling on black market, Heim said. Still he said he was pleased with the collaboration with Largo police to jump all over this and recover some of the stolen merchandise.Most of Tech Datas corporate campus is within Largo city limits, at 5350 Tech Data Drive, near the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. The company is in the process of building a new 46,800-square-foot office building on the campus, according to Largo economic development documents.

He was released on $5,000 bond at 2:46 a.m. Clearwater police said Lesle was annoyed by a flock of seagulls near him and his friends south of Pier 80 near Tower 3, so he used the lower pole part of an umbrella to swing at the birds.

Someone from a local veterinarian facility responded and euthanized the bird.Sheriffs Office investigates identity theftTARPON SPRINGS Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are seeking the publics assistance in locating two credit card fraud/identity theft suspects from Tarpon Springs. According to detectives, the two suspects obtained the credit card information of the victim from the Tarpon Springs area at noon on Feb. 25. The suspects then possibly created a cloned card and used it at various locations in Pinellas County.

This was the Third Day of creation hence the name of our company, Third Day Landscaping 54th Avenue North. Current plans call for a four-lane urban roadway. The project completes the connection to 46th Avenue and addresses pedestrian safety concerns in the area. Design cost is $215,000 and construction $4.9 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2017-18. Segment 1B from 54th Avenue North to the Cross Bayou Canal Bridge is a four-lane project with a transition from 62nd Avenue to the sixlane bridge. It includes improvements for pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design cost is estimated at $215,000 and construction $5.3 million. It currently is not funded. 1C will be a six-lane road running from the south side of the bridge to 84th Lane North. Plans include widening of the functionally obsolete existing bridge to bring it up to standards and provide bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Design costs are budgeted at $220,000 and construction $4.6 million. It is funded and scheduled for construction in fiscal year 2015-16. Segments 2, 3 and 4 also will be a 6-lane road. Segment 2 runs from 84th Lane North to 82nd Avenue North and Segment 3 from 82nd Avenue North to 106th Avenue North. Segment 4 goes from 106th Avenue North to north of Bryan Dairy Road. Segment 2 includes an extended intersection improvement project to improve flow at Park Boulevard. Design cost is budgeted at $134,000 and construction $5.2 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2016-17. Segment 3 addresses continuity, pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design cost is estimated at $236,000 and construction $9.5 million. The project is not currently budgeted. Segment 4 provides improved traffic flow and connection to the Bryan Dairy Road project, Starkey Road to 72nd Street. Design cost was $63,000 and construction $4.2 million. The project is currently under construction. Segment 5, which runs from north of Bryan Dairy Road to 130th Avenue North, will be a 4lane road with design features to address pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design costs are estimated at $220,000 and construction $6.2 million. Segment 5 is not currently funded. Plans for segment 6 call for a 5-lane road, three going northbound and two southbound. The project addresses traffic flow especially between Ulmerton Road and East Bay Drive and pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design is estimated to cost $550,000 and construction $8.8 million. The project is not currently funded. Lovett estimated cost for the unfunded segments at about $30 million. He said segments had been funded putting those with prior investments design costs and purchases of permits or right of way at the top of the list. The next consideration was need. This will give the biggest bang for the taxpayers money, Lovett said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said he did not know if additional money for the project would be available until it gets closer to the end of collection of the current Penny for Pinellas. The road project first appeared on the Penny for Pinellas funding list in 1989. Commission Chair Karen Seel pointed out that costs for the three funded segments were less than budgeted. We might have some funding for another segment, she said. PARK STREET/STARKEY ROAD, from page 1A Florida lawmakers pass tax relief bill By SUZETTE PORTERUnanimous votes by Floridas House and Senate leaves the fate of $395 million in tax relief in the hands of Gov. Rick Scott. The bill passed March 18 by the Senate and March 20 by the House reduces certain annual vehicle registration fees, totaling $395 million in savings. Starting Sept. 1, fees to register a motor vehicle will drop to the amount paid prior to 2009. Registration costs will go down by $25.05 for heavy weight vehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. The legislature increased vehicle registration fees to help balance the budget in 2009, when state general revenue collections declined more than 22 percent since their high in 2005-2006, officials said. Now, theyre reversing that action. Gov. Scott praised the Senate for passing the bill. He released a statement March 18 that talked about how critical the bill was to his $500 million Its Your Money campaign. This tax cut will let families keep nearly $400 million of their hard-earned money in their own pockets, Scott said. Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson took a proactive stand to help local residents save money. On March 12, well before the legislature voted on the measure, Nelson removed the twoyear renewal option from motor vehicle renewal notices. If this bill passes, I want to give Pinellas County residents the opportunity to take advantage of the savings it will offer, Nelson said in a press release. I would be disheartened if someone missed out on the opportunity to save money because they were not informed of the pending legislation and potential savings. In 2013, 9 percent of Pinellas County residents took advantage of the biennial registration. A conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration shows that Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. However, residents can still renew their registrations for two years if they prefer. They need to write two year renewal on their registration renewal return card and double the amount to be paid. There is no cost advantage with two-year registration renewals, they are offered as a matter of convenience, Nelson said. For more information, visit www.taxcollect.com. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz announced in January details of a five-point Work Plan 2014, which prioritized tax relief. A reduction on annual vehicle registration fees was one of the five. The House and Senate have already passed two others, legislation to protect Floridas children from sexual predators as well as the Florida GI Bill. The GI Bill increases education and employment opportunities for the states veterans, including an increase in funding for Educational Dollars for Duty. It also allows out-of-state veterans to receive in-state tuition rates through the C.W. Bill Young Veteran Tuition Waiver Program. The bill provides $300,000 to Visit Florida to spend to encourage veterans to make Florida their home. It also enhances hiring preferences for veterans and spouses of veterans who died in combat for government jobs and allows private employers to do the same. Four separate bills were passed to increase protections against sexual offenders. The two remaining points are Economic Opportunity through Education and Improve Government Accountability and Efficiency.

New website reveals countys spendingCLEARWATER A new Spending in the Sunshine website allows users to view financial transactions by the Clerk and the Circuit Court and Pinellas County Commissioners. The website is the latest offering by the county to provide citizens an electronically accessed, transparent view of government activities. The Spending in the Sunshine website allows users to view detailed financial transactions down to the invoice level, and if applicable, the check number and funding source across both departments. The site offers multiple methods of searching for information under various categories including by vendor, department and spending. The site also provides records of salary expenditures for employees under both entities. Tutorial videos are placed on each tab of the site to help users navigate the different functions associated with each type of search. Users also are able to export data into multiple programs. Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke requested the in-house project be developed to offer citizens an easy-to-use, convenient way to view government spending. I am very pleased that all Pinellas County citizens will now be able to open the books, so to speak, and view government spending on their behalf, Burke said. I wanted to eliminate any barrier to being absolutely transparent. With Spending in the Sunshine, I believe we have accomplished just that a companion piece to the states sunshine laws regarding open record keeping.The project was led by Clerk of the Circuit Court Internet technology staff and developed by staff in Pinellas Countys Business Technology Services division, leveraging the countys recent investment in the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise business planning and financial application.To view the Spending in the Sunshine website, visit www.pinellasclerk.org and click on the Spending in the Sunshine tab at the top of the page.

March 29 11am-4pmBounce House & Fun Activities a knack for media and promotions. So he got out of the family business and launched Life Improvement Media Group. There are two facets to the interactive media company, Remmel said. The first offers other businesses all of the promotional techniques, technologies and resources needed to succeed. We have all the pieces of the puzzle for anything anyone might want to do, he said. The second facet his real passion is Life Improvement Radio, a free Internet radio station with two platforms: a slate of daytime, PG-rated, educational-based shows and Life Improvement Radio After Dark, which features musicand entertainment-based nighttime programming where anything goes. When LIR first started five years ago, it was the only Internet station in Pinellas County, Remmel said. And at the time, people had a much different perception of the online format. People have really been down on Internet radio, said Remmel, who has also hosted several shows on the station, including Your Media Guys. It was like the wicked stepchild of radio. But in just a few years, technology has improved so much that its really changed the marketplace, he said. Traditional radio stations are drying up. Many mainstream stations, such as 102.5 The Bone and 98.7 The Fan, have changed over to a talk format, and more Internet stations are popping up as the technology is refined. Currently, there are around 40 shows offered on LIRs daytime format, and 20 nighttime programs. But these numbers fluctuate, Remmel said. He launches new shows each month. And his daytime shows get between 4 million and 5 million listeners each year. His After Dark programming, which launched last April, so far has about 1 million listeners, and he expects this number to grow significantly in its second year. Velva Lee Heraty recently launched a show, Lets Talk Life, with LIR on Saturdays from 10 to 11 a.m. I was just so impressed with Erik and his show, she said. Shed considered starting a show with another local Internet station, but was turned off by how unorganized and unprofessional it was. They were way, way in over their heads, she said. So she jumped at the chance when Remmel offered her a show on LIR. He had the right platform, the right attitude and the technical skills, she said. Its been an absolute blessing working with Life Improvement Radio. Its wonderful to be part of a community of creative people and innovators. Now Remmels focus is on growing the station. Hes started an online crowd funding campaign at igg.me/p/705216. Hes hoping to raise $26,000 to move the station into a larger studio that will allow him to focus on his commitment to the community. Not only will he be able to better serve his listening audience, but local businesses, musicians and artists as well. Were the best-kept secret in St. Pete, Remmel said.

For Clay Folden, 26, of Harbor Bluffs it was the gift of a 35mm camera from his father when he was in middle school that led to a career in photography and a certain amount of fame in the emerging world of drone flying. Folden, who graduated from Seminole High School and now lives in Los Angeles, said his foray into using drones in his photography work was borne out of necessity. Photography is a very competitive market, he said. Everybody these days has a $40,000 camera and I cant compete with that. But my work in aerial photography got me a lot of attention. The drones, or aerial platforms as they are officially known, are roughly 18 inches in diameter and are remotely controlled. A camera is mounted on or in the drone and the photographer does the flying. They provide unique or novel shots that used to be impossible. They are usually in close quarters with tight maneuverings, said Folden. Folden said he found out about the drones from his uncle who noticed some aerial shots in an article he was reading. He did some research and discovered the drones. Folden said that was just over a year ago. Shortly after that a company came out with an affordable system, I got one and made my first video, he said. Right now Im working with a production company but I am getting my own production company. Folden remembers that first video and said it would have been impossible to do with his budget. That first video I shot with the aerial platform involved aerial shots of the Capital Records building in Los Angeles, he said. Without the drone I would have needed a crane or a cherry picker. Another time I shot a Shelby Mustang racing through the back streets in Manhattan. Before the drone we would have had to shut down whole streets and run another car alongside. This was a lot easier and much more efficient. Echoing those sentiments is local photographer Wayne Cathel, 53, of Belleair Bluffs, who has been a photographer for the past 10 years. He said as soon as he heard about the aerial platforms he wanted to get one. I came across them in a forum I was attending, he said. I thought what a great way to get above the subject. I have always wanted to get over and above; I have always wanted to get the shot from a higher vantage point. Cathel said he started out with baby steps using a drone. I bought a $99 one in a hobby store. It was supposed to simulate a real one. I learned how to operate it the hard way, in my house. I knocked over lamps and crashed into walls, but it is better to do it that way than to get an expensive one and crash it into a tree. It wasnt long before Cathel got himself a more expensive drone. First, one that cost $1,500, then later a $3,000 version. He said the more rotor blades on the drone the more stable they are. He too remembers his first video. It was in Dunedin at the sight of that big sinkhole that opened up earlier this year, he said. I was able to fly a camera down into the hole and was able to help the authorities find where they had to move the dirt to stabilize the hole. Since then Cathel says he has worked with Realtors and builders to get aerial shots for their promotions or to help with their projects. Airplanes and helicopters are very expensive, he said. I can get the same shots at a lower altitude and I can actually fly into a house if I need to. Cathel, whose company is Belleairimages.net, said there are safety concerns when flying a drone. I think there should be regulations because you need to know how to use them, he said. I follow the guidelines; stay away from crowds, stay five miles from any airport and do a pre-flight check to make sure everything is secure. There is a safety factor. Ironically, up until now photographers like Cathel and Folden have not been able to charge money for any shots they get from the aerial platforms. The Federal Aviation Authority has denied them the ability to profit from their work with drones. That could be changing, however. Recently a federal court judge ruled that the FAA had no authority to enforce their rules. It is something Folden has been waiting for. We have been pushing them to change those regulations, he said. I am meeting a lot of people who want my work and in anticipation of the FAA changing the regulations I have been investing in new equipment. Folden, whose mom, Julie, is a Realtor with Coastal Properties Group in IRB, and whose dad Gary is a charter boat captain out of the Clearwater Marina, has won awards for his work. He said it is a career that is just beginning. I know I have found my niche in this market, he said. It has gotten me a lot of attention. This will take my time for some time to come.

Lori Karns had already dunked a one shotter on the 15th of the same course earlier in the day. Zoromski smashed a 3-wood into the wind on the 12th hole and Lori stroked a 9-wood into the cup on the 15th hole. Some of our members were very happy since they played on the correct day to get a double dose of free drinks. On Feb. 20, Kim Schumacher aced the 13th hole of the east course with her 9-wood. She also earned a crack at winning $1 million at the Val-Spar Championship at Innisbrook. All local golfers who had a hole-in-one during a recent period were eligible to repeat the feat at the Val-Spar Championship. No one scored another ace but all enjoyed the opportunity.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, March 27, 2014We reveal who we are in several ways: how we speak, what we eat, our styles of dress, what we laugh at, what makes us angry or happy, and so on. Also, how we drive our cars. Or so says Emanuel W. Ricochet, Ph.D., director of the Final Skidoo Research Institute of Elkins, Ky. He has studied thousands of motorists, trying to link their personalities and backgrounds to the way they operate their motor vehicles under varied situations. For example, Dr. Ricochet says he has learned that red-haired women with dimples tend to flirt with other motorists more frequently than non-dimpled women with dark hair. When asked why this is true, Dr. Ricochet said, It has something to do with genetics as it relates to the Big Bang and the invention of the hydramatic shift by Olds or Ford by one of those guys. One of their wives was red-haired and dimpled, and things just sort of went out of control from that point. Other findings of the FSRI are as follows: Presbyterians aged 50 and over seldom check their rear-view and side mirrors before passing other cars. The FSRI report said, These normally well-mannered folks eventually get tired of straggling along behind the other guy. When this happens they suddenly pull out and give it the gas. Our best guess is that Presbyterians believe in pre-destination, which says when your time is up theres not much you can do about it. So why waste time looking out for other cars? Motorists who text while driving are usually lousy spellers. Researchers learned this by examining the cellphones of drivers who were killed or seriously injured in highway crashes. The low level of the drivers intelligence was indicated not only by their texting while driving, but also by their inability to correctly spell such common words as awesome and Miley Cyrus. Drivers who engage in cosmetic behavior, such as shaving or putting on makeup while underway, tend to have shorter life spans than persons who pay close attention to recommended safety measures. An FSRI report said, Motorists who persist in checking their facial appearance in the rear-view mirror are usually self-centered, narcissistic and frequently dead. Michigan residents who move to Florida tend to believe that Florida has the worst drivers in the nation. Florida motorists feel the same way about Canadian motorists. Fewer than 6 percent of drivers in any state believe that local drivers are competent and trustworthy. An unusually high percentage of male drivers arrested for road-rage behavior were found to possess active prescriptions for Viagra, Cialis and other erectile dysfunction drugs. FSRI physicians said, Although we cannot prove any necessary connection between road rage and sexual frustration, we suspect that one exists. If Sigmund Freud were still alive were sure he would see the link between a flaccid schwantstucher and its angry owner flipping the bird at other drivers. When interviewed, 44 percent of Pinellas County motorists said they did not realize that the left lane is the recommended one for passing another motorist. A typical response was, If Im in the left lane and going too slow, the other guy still has the right-hand lane to pass me, doesnt he? So whats the problem? Another local finding was that long-time Pinellas motorists often become confused while driving on Tyrone Boulevard and the few other hypotenuse streets that are found here. These are the streets that are not part of the standard north-south and east-west grid. The FSRI said, When these drivers suddenly realize they are traveling northwest or southeast, they become disoriented and afraid that they have been somehow transported to Boston or other cities with street plans designed by drunken madmen. According to the FSRI research, politically conservative drivers and liberal drivers are not much different from each other when it comes to safety, road courtesy, and obeying traffic laws. However, some contrasts do exist. Conservatives have better hearing, because they choose to listen to gospel music and Rush Limbaugh broadcasts, which can be performed at a lower volume. Many liberals especially those under age 25 are slightly deaf from playing rock music so loudly that the resulting vibrations loosen dental fillings of motorists in nearby cars. Dr. Ricochet said he looks forward to an upcoming study in which motorists will be asked about their attitudes toward car manufacturers. He said, We want to find motorists reaction to recent news stories in which General Motors and Toyota were revealed as callous, profit-hungry and contemptuous of their customers safety. In the face of these findings, motorists who persist in driving GM and Toyota vehicles are likely to score high on our naive and downright stupid scales. Or perhaps well just call them adventurous risk-takers.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Study: Who we are is how we drive Drivers SeatBob Driver Floridians menaced by inflation Hotel preservationists should heed common senseEditors: Opinions are like noses, we all have one. However, to vehemently espouse preserving the Belleview Biltmore hotel without the facts is divisive and causing our town of Belleair to choose sides. You have lost sight of the fact that the town does not own the hotel. It is a private enterprise and not part of the towns Parks and Recreation Department. Your anger and frustration is misdirected. Rather than chide the commission you should be chiding Kawa, Richard Heisenbottle, R.C. Johnson and D. Hein, all consummate prevaricators. They have been dangling the carrot in front of you and twisting the facts. Some of you have suggested the commissioners insist the present owners sell only to those who will restore the hotel. Can you imagine telling you whom you can market your home to? Have you never heard of private property rights? Some are jumping the gun and drawing conclusions without knowing the facts, i.e. Cheezems cheesy cookie cutter condo clusters. If you would wait, like youre asking us to wait, youd hear Mr. Cheezems plan rather than using your clever alliteration, which is counterproductive. We have waited patiently for five years for Heisenbottle to close the deal. How much longer can we wait? We have heard you, many from out of town, pound on the podium calling the hotel the heart and soul of Belleair. If that be the case, the town should be dead, as the hotel has been shuttered since January 2009. Your untruths and inaccuracies coupled with baseless accusations border on slander. Youre noisy, fact-baiting and are often irrational. Heres a partial list of your preposterous, inaccurate statements: Shovel ready project scheduled to start Jan. of 2013; economic feasibility has been validated by financers who will fund it; there are legitimate groups making offers to buy and restore; give Heisenbottle more time, there are more buyers in the wings; construction of townhomes and condos would almost certainly decrease the property values of existing condos; the hotel is in good condition and can be restored. As late as February Heisenbottle said, I have a solid commitment, were very close to a deal. These investors with the funds are as illusive as Ms. Hein. Ive asked numerous people, including reporters, if theyve ever set eyes on this woman who has a propensity for stirring up the pot with misleading statements. They all deny having met her. Not so for Ms R.C. Johnson, who is a regular at town meetings with her charts and documents. Johnson continues to question the credentials of our town attorney and our city planner. I ask where are her credentials and those of her minions who shout, accuse and disrupt, insisting the hotel can be restored? You are waiting for a miracle that is not coming, grasping at straws, and dreaming of preservation that is too expensive to come true. Commissioner Stephen Fowler, an avowed preservationist, said, Im saying slow down, with the economy recovering, Im firmly convinced that its doable. This from a man who admits to not being a money kind of guy. You have been comparing the Belleview Biltmore Hotel to the Don CeSar and the Vinoy, which is like comparing a funeral to a wedding; the Don being on the beach and the Vinoy being in the heart of a vibrant city on the waterfront. Maybe plans to renovate the hotel were too complicated and grandiose. There was never a Plan B suggested. We now have one being presented by Mike Cheezem, which entails a mixed-use approach. Lets listen to his plan and listen with our heads and not our hearts. It appears that common sense may be prevailing and preserving the hotel may no longer be a viable option. So please step away from the podium, cease and desist writing vitriolic accusatory letters and emails and let capitalism work. Lil Cromer BelleairIn memory of NikkiEditor: Do you know what rat poison looks like? After what happened to me, please find out. On Saturday, Feb. 22, my beautiful, yellow Labrador, Nikki, died from ingesting rat poison. Somehow, rat poison found its way into my backyard. I know this because I found some there after Nikki passed. The piece I found was a bright green color with specks. It didnt look dangerous. It looked like something a child might pick up to play with (see photo, however, it comes in many forms). I was told that either an animal dragged it into my yard from a neighbors yard or that someone threw it over my fence. I have lived in Belleair for 26 years, and never in a million years, could I imagine that my sweet, loving dog would be poisoned. Please find out what rat poison looks like. You can Google rat poison images. Please find out. It is horrific to watch your dog die from ingesting rat poison. My hope is that this announcement will inform people, so this does not happen again. It would give me solace to know that Nikki did not die in vain. Melinda Moreschi BelleairToo much commercialism on the beachEditor: Dear Treasure Island decision makers and all visitors of the beach: I am writing today about the boats pulling blimps and the planes dragging banners along the beaches. We are inundated with commercialism at every turn, in every corner, and at a constant and furious pace. Why? Please. Why does the city of Treasure Island allow this to happen in a place that residents and tourist alike go to vacate the madness? We want to hear surf, birds, and the voice of a person sitting next to us, not the roar of a small plane slowly dragging a banner that propels us back to the real world and makes us wonder if our auto insurance offers the best rate. We dont want these thoughts. Weve gone to the beach to vacate our lives for a period of time, and residents and tourists alike pay a hefty price to do so. And yet, even here, we are victims to more calls to consumerism. For the love of peace and to uphold the value of what vacation and holiday should still embody, please forbid this activity in the air and water space of Treasure Island. Be trendsetters. Stand up for what is right. Protect the little bit of precious freedom we have from consumerism. If I wanted Miami Id go to Miami. Gina Tracy Treasure IslandKudos for Seminoles recycling programEditor: I recently visited the website of the city of Seminole. In particular, I visited the wonderful posting for the Department of Public Works. I am thrilled to learn that Waste Management will deliver 64-gallon recycle carts to residential customers in March 2014. The enhanced recycling program is scheduled to begin the first week of April 2014. Seminole residential customers will be able to place aluminum and steel cans, cardboard, cartons, all color glass, mixed paper, newspapers, and plastic bottles (with caps removed). Of course, NO plastic bags should be placed into the recycle cart. This is wonderful progress for Seminoles recycling program. Congratulations to the city for making this important program grow. Mary Hampton SeminoleInaction has consequencesEditor: In the March 13 issue or the Seminole Beacon I read Mr. Drivers column on being a stoic. What came to mind were the approximately 400,000 people registered to vote in Pinellas County who did not cast ballots in the election to fill C.W. Youngs congressional seat. Whatever belief a person may have Democracy to stay effective demands participation. Shame on such inaction because inaction in itself is action and has consequences. David Robinson St Petersburg Living today, even by Florida standards, is pricey. The average cost for a loaf of bread is $1.41 as opposed to $1.08 five years ago and 88 cents in 2000. The average per pound cost for bananas now is 62 cents, 50 cents five years ago, and 35 cents back in 1999. A pound of bacon is $4.54, $3.44 five years ago, and just $2.47 15 years ago. The average cost of a gallon of gasoline today is $3.50. In 2007 it was $2.80; $1.36 in 2002; $1.13 in 1992; 65 cents in 1977, and 31 cents in 1962. Im old enough to remember gas prices in the teens and when windshields were washed and oil, air and water was checked. The attendant waved farewell with a fist full of S&H Green Stamps. Today, big oil and other industries boast billions in profits while paychecks remain stagnant as skyrocketing living expenses crush Americans into submission. Even a trip to the happiest place of all ... Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom ... costs $99 plus tax. Thats in addition to a $15 parking fee and the inflated prices for food and soft drinks. Its outrageous to visit parks that are little more than glorified shopping malls for Disney merchandise. Working Americans feel the brunt of the challenges to meet everyday expenditures. Many companies are reducing manpower, hours and sending jobs overseas. Full timers who enjoyed company-paid medical care, sick leave, vacations and other benefits face demotion to part-time status to circumvent federal and state employment laws. One restaurant chain has even announced that it may soon add an employee insurance surcharge to meals. The Consumer Price Index indicates that it costs $3,632 in Tampa Bay to maintain the same standard of living that costs, for example, $6,500 in New York. That means consumer prices here are 23.87 percent lower. Renting an apartment or home is 65.80 percent higher in the Northeast, groceries are 19.57 percent lower in Tampa Bay, while overall purchasing power is 41.77 percent higher than in New York. Compared to other states, its still cheaper to live in Tampa Bay when state income taxes (we dont have them) are factored in, along with transportation costs ($13 to cross the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey), as opposed to less than $2 at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge tollbooth. Florida property taxes that seem excessive to some really are dirt-cheap. My property tax is less than $1,000 annually. The rate on a home I once owned in New Jersey nudges $11,000 ... thats eleven thousand dollars! Some may argue that workers in major U.S. cities earn more money than their counterparts in the Southeast. In Florida, for example, a customer service representative earns roughly $12 an hour while an administrative assistant rakes in a few pennies more. Statistically, Floridians earn 6 percent less than workers in most other states. Now lets take a look at our New York example where a customer service representative earns $43,000 annually. Meanwhile, the minimum wage worker will earn $8.75 an hour this coming December, and a quarter more to $9-an-hour in December 2015. Floridas minimum wage rose by 14 cents last January, or 68 cents higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Thus, there are thousands of Americans holding on for dear life so they dont fall below the poverty line. So how does a low wage worker find money for the mortgage, rent, car payments, groceries, insurance, clothes, and all the other expenses on roughly $400 a week after taxes? They dont, and thats why so many gainfully employed workers depend on government subsidies for food, housing and health care in order to survive. Some municipalities, like Pinellas Parks Angel Fund, helps some low wage earners pay utility bills. Food banks operated by churches and civic groups offer free groceries to the working poor. Some corporate executives actually advise their minimum wage workers on ways to obtain various forms of public assistance, including Medicaid, rather than pay a decent salary. According to a study by the University of California at Berkeley, more than half of Americas minimum wage workers rely on at least one government public assistance program to support their families. Taxpayers are on the hook for $7 billion annually thanks to one major burger chain that offers take it or leave it minimal wages, no benefits, and limited work hours. The fast food industry combined is said to cost taxpayers an estimated $3.8 billion annually in government subsidies for the working poor. The Obama Administration is pushing for a federal minimum wage of $10.10 an hour by 2016. That would help roughly a million Floridians in the hotel, restaurant and service industries who live in a state that has the second-largest number of minimum wage workers, only after Texas. And so it goes for struggling Americans who are living paycheck to paycheck while trying to eke out a living. Meanwhile, the price of gasoline, groceries and insurance continues to escalate while big business reaps in the profits.Thomas Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com.

TORRESLARGO The food from Jai McFalls garden, growing abundantly in front of her Largo storefront, doesnt look much like the produce offered in grocery stores. The plants that do look familiar taste different, stronger. But thats a good thing, McFall said. The nutrients she feeds the plants keeps them from getting gobbled up by bugs. The produce tastes better and is better for you because theyve been cared for properly. What we do is we build up soil and then we put minerals in it, because minerals are elements essential for life, and minerals are what gives food their flavor, she said. McFall calls herself an edible landscaper. Her business, Organic Living, has been based at 13064 Indian Rocks Road in Largo since last July. Through it, she teaches people the benefits of organic food and, more importantly, how to grow it in difficult Florida soil. From her own garden, McFall shows off easily recognized vegetables: eggplant, kale, tomatoes, cauliflower, Romaine lettuce and cayenne peppers. She explains why the arugula and oregano tastes so different and offers leaves of herbs: sorrell, Thai basil, tarragon, cilantro, Cuban oregano, fennel, tarragon, longevity spinach, Chinese chives, Okinawan spinach, Italian dandelion, bronze fennel, stevia and dill. Even the hibiscus and snapdragon flowers are edible. And all the plants are growing and thriving, without any pesticides. Everything I sell is specific to Central Florida. It might not work in Miami, and it might not work up in Gainesville, but theyre very specific to Central Florida, McFall said. A new customer, Delalle Alexander of Clearwater Beach, browsed from shelves of seedlings March 14, selecting new plants to grow. Her garden only began to thrive last month; she failed to grow anything last year. But McFall taught her how to grow a garden in Florida. Her new tomatoes are still green, Alexander said. But they look happy, she said, explaining that shes also growing radishes, parsley and eggplant. They all seem like theyre happy plants. I havent eaten any yet, other than the parsley. Happy plants are what McFall is all about. She spends much of her days away from her garden, giving talks to various social groups, at preschools, senior centers, churches and doctors offices. If anybody wants me to come talk about organics, I will do so, and I love it, she said, adding that she doesnt require a fee. Because people need to know, and thats my purpose: to educate people.A broken systemPeople always ask McFall what she does to keep the bugs away. But there arent any bugs in her garden. The reason is simple. Healthy plants dont get bugs, she said. Todays conventional fertilizers give plants three minerals: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, the same ingredients that can be used to make bombs. We need 90 minerals in the soil to have healthy soil, McFall explained. Without more minerals, the resulting plants are stressed and unhealthy. The first thing Mother Nature does is sends in the bugs: Take out those unhealthy plants! Because were supposed to get our minerals from our food, McFall said. Scientifically, a healthy plant with no stress becomes a complex carbohydrate. A stressed plant one growing in the wrong season with the wrong amount of water or sunlight and without proper nutrients turns into a simple sugar. The bugs gravitate to simple sugars like candy, McFall said. To combat the bugs, pesticides were developed. So now we have weak and unhealthy plants covered with poison, McFall said. So then Mother Nature sends in the molds, the mildews, the funguses, the diseases, the weeds. Take out those unhealthy plants! Plants are supposed to develop their own probiotics and immunities, but pesticides kill those too, allowing unhealthy organisms to grow in their wake. Of course, the pesticides themselves are bad for humans to consume. McFall points customers to the Dirty Dozen, a list of the fruits and vegetables that are proven to contain the most pesticides, -67 toxins on every one of them, McFall said. Avoiding those toxins is the No. 1 reason to eat organic produce. A lot of people tell me, I cant afford to buy all organic. And I tell them, You cant afford not to, because youre going to pay the farmer now or youre going to pay the doctor later. And its going to be less painful and less expensive to pay the farmer now, McFall said. And if you know how, its easiest to grow your own produce. When you grow your own, not only are you keeping the herbicides and pesticides out, but youre making sure that youre putting the minerals in that need to be in the soil to have healthy plants and to have healthy bodies, McFall said. Plant magicMcFall grew up on an organic farm in Michigan. In the 1960s, the family grew or raised all their own food: meats, fruits and vegetables. We canned, and every Saturday we baked whatever breads, pies, cookies, cakes we needed for the week, so we ate really, really good, McFall said. She bought the 10 acres from her parents in 1986 and began her edible landscaping company. When she moved to Tampa in 2005, however, she discovered that her expertise didnt carry over exactly. Her first two gardens were miserable failures, she said. When she moved to a tiny plot in Clearwater, she tried again, this time with lots more success. She grew herbs and vegetables and cultivated more than 40 fruit-bearing plants. When people would come and look at my gardens, they would walk around and go, You cant grow gardens like this in Florida. You must be using magic, McFall said. Accordingly, the four plant food products Organic Living sells are called Magic Nos. 1 through 4, in order of importance. The first provides the soil with 91 minerals, mined from ancient seabeds in Nevada. No. 2 provides the beneficial microorganisms the plants need to thrive. You create a living community with the microorganisms and the worms and the insects and the plants, and you dont get bugs, and you dont get disease, McFall said. You get nutrient-dense, healthy plants. Magic No. 3 was developed out of a specific desire to grow a plethora of tomatoes, as is easy to do in many northern areas. McFall discovered that tomatoes needed a lower pH and even more nutrients. So the third plant food is made out of bat guano, blood meal and worm castings. Magic No. 4 is called biochar, a one-time application made from the Mayan technique of burning wood into charcoal and mixing it with organic compost. McFall keeps an ongoing experiment to compare the difference between a plant grown with her plant food and one without. The plant fed properly always thrives, grows bigger and produces more fruit, she said. Thats why I teach people to grow their own, because they can. Its totally doable, McFall said. There is work involved, there is money involved. Theres an investment to make. At the same time, its an investment in your future. For her own future, McFall is looking to move into the property next to her storefront and from there grow even more gardens. She wants to clear the back of her current property, plant a food forest and run a coop through which people can buy shares and pick up produce every week. She said she thinks her message, her ongoing mission, is having an impact in the community. Organic Livings email list is more than 2,000 strong, and theyre all regular customers, she said. Ive had people tell me that Ive changed their lives (and) their health, she said. They keep coming back. And they bring people with them. She finds her work very rewarding because she can say she is changing lives, one family at a time. Organic Living hosts regular workshops on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m. Most are free. A schedule of upcoming workshops, along with more gardening information, is available at the business website, www.organiclivingforall.com. McFall also is available to give talks on organic gardening. Call 324-4435. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESOrganic Living is at 13064 Indian Rocks Road in Largo.

Janney, Phillip Baker Hall and Rachael Harris Director: Jason Bateman Rated: R Jason Bateman makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words. In the movie, he stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious eighth-graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. Guy zealously plays to win the prize money at stake, outpacing the pre-teen field in match after match. Guy is aided and abetted in qualifying for the matches by reporter Jenny Widgeon, who has the exclusive rights to Guys story and has liaisons with her subject. Guy rudely steps up his game to embarrass and outwit the competitions imperious chief Dr. Bowman (Philip Baker Hall) and administrator Dr. Deagan (Allison Janney), who are intent on having him eliminated from the field. While Jenny attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), who is completely unfazed by Guys take-no-prisoners approach to life. But the increasingly heated final rounds of the Quill may spell things differently for Guys future.Cesar ChavezGenre: Drama Cast: Michael Pea, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Jacob Vargas, Yancey Arias, Wes Bentley, John Ortoz and John Malkovich Director: Diego Luna Rated: PG-13 In Cesar Chavez, director Diego Luna presents a powerful cinematic portrait of the legendary activist. The film stars Michael Pea in the title role, along with America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson and John Malkovich. Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but softspoken, Chavez embraced nonviolence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individuals ability to change the world.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Breathe InGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan, Mackenzie Davis and Nico Tortorella Director: Drake Doremus Not rated Breathe In pairs writer/director Drake Doremus once again with his incandescent star, Felicity Jones. seems happy enough, but with her arrival to the Reynolds Upstate New York home, the private struggles of each family member begin to bubble. In particular, frustrated musician-turnedpiano-teacher Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce) finds long suppressed dreams and desires reignited by Sophies talent and inquisitive nature. While Keiths wife, Megan (Amy Ryan) and daughter, Lauren (Mackenzie Davis) focus on Laurens final year of high school, Sophie and Keith are drawn ever closer by their mutual longing for creative expression. Ultimately, Sophie and Keith must confront how much they are willing to sacrifice and what they truly want out of life.Hide Your Smiling FacesGenre: Drama Cast: Ryan Jones, Nathan Varnson, Colm OLeary, Thomas Cruz, Christina Starbuck and Chris Kies Director: Daniel Patrick Carbone Not rated After a neighborhood tragedy, two young brothers 9-year-old Tommy (Ryan Jones) and 14year-old Eric (Nathan Varnson) confront changing relationships, the mystery of nature, and their own mortality. A dreamlike portrait of adolescence unfolding over one hot, hazy summer, Hide Your Smiling Faces is a startling debut, exploring rural American life through the distorted lens of youth.The Raid 2Genre: Action Cast: Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Tio Pakusadewo, Oka Antara, Julie Estelle, Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo and Kazuki Kitamura Director: Gareth Evans Rated: R He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldnt have been more wrong. Formidable though they may have been, Ramas opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap. And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender Yuda. In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco the son of a prominent gang kingpin to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-ornothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Cook, a Canadian Juno Award-winning guitarist, is touring in support of his recent album release, The Blue Guitar Sessions. According to his website, the musician found inspiration for the new recording while listening to Adeles . It was the simplicity of it, Cook says of Adeles work. For me it was amazing that an album, where many of the tracks were just voice and piano, was a pop record. I loved it. It creates a world where we get to really hear her voice and also the pianist can be more expressive. It just becomes a much more intimate album, a much more personal album and I thought I would love to do that. His appreciation of Adeles work emboldened him to tackle a long simmering personal objective and create a blue mood record. He spent the summer of 2011 cottage-hopping with his family and set about writing material for his eighth studio album, The Blue Guitar Sessions.A change in courseAccording to his biography at website of his booking agent, The Feldman Agency, The Blue Guitar Sessions is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. A leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995s Tempest, Cook has received many accolades, including, in 2008, winning the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazines prestigious Players Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia. But Toronto resident who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director, and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer has steered clear of anything resembling flamenco on this record, producing a sound that allows listeners to appreciate each musicians contribution. To do so he also battled his natural instinct to fill in space. Its a big departure from the work I have done in the past, he says in the biographical sketch. And theres a fear that if you do something drastically different, will there still be someone there to listen to it if you change? Cook feels that the role of an artist is to change, to constantly push forward and try and come up with something new. I dont want to spend the rest of my life repeating my first few records, Cook says. So I decided I was going to do it. The result is a captivating 14track album recorded on a pair of vintage microphones microphones for which Cook exhaustively searched so he could authentically replicate the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era. Sound is of the utmost importance to him as a musician, producer and engineer. The Blue Guitar Sessions is best enjoyed through a room-filling home stereo system like the old days. The track Broken Moon features Cooks extraordinary guitar accompanied by cellist Amy Laing. Tom Szczniak adds accordion to Witching Hour, a melodic composition hinting at Cooks Parisian roots. Toronto vocalist Emma-Lee makes an appearance on I Put a Spell on You, a cover of the song written by Screamin Jay Hawkins and popularized by Nina Simone and Jeff Beck. Longtime collaborator violinist Chris Church makes several appearances in just the right spots. Tampa Bay area audiences will soon discover how well The Blue Guitar Sessions translates to live performances. The Capitol Theatre performance will include songs from more familiar work as well as material from the new album. Cooks previous albums include Tempest (1995), Gravity (1996), Vertigo (1998), Free Fall (2000), Nomad (2003), Frontiers (2008) and The Rumba Foundation (2009). Five of these were nominated for Juno Awards and one, Free Fall, won a Juno Award for Best Instrumental Album. Joining Cook on stage are the musicians that have become as familiar to fans as Cook himself: Chris Church, Rosendo Chendy Leon, Nicholas Hernandez and Dennis Mohammed. What I found is that the longer the five of us played together, we really gelled and had a sense of what our domains were, Cook said in a press release from his publicist. Each member grew within their domain to make it something really big. We all learned to fill our space.

According to the event website, Team Sandtastic creates some of the finest quality sand sculptures worldwide. Sculptors and associates from the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom have created some singularly unique sculptures throughout the years for engagement proposals, weddings, and special events. Malls, conventions, fairs, festivals, and theme parks have been their staple clients. The team uses only sand and water with no cement or fixatives added. Tools utilized in the carving process include margin trowels, spreaders, cake decorator spatulas, and dental instruments for, intricate detailed areas. Mark Mason returns to the festival this year, bringing more than three decades of experience with him. Mason started sculpting sand 31 years ago, competing in the Sand-Blast, a sand sculpture contest in Fort Lauderdale. Sand sculpture became his primary occupation 22 years ago. Since then, he has led his artistic team to competitions in Australia, Canada, Mexico, Europe, South America, the United States and throughout the Caribbean. Clearwater resident Patrick Harsch joins this years sand sculptors. Harsch has been involved in sculpting sand for more than 17 years. He got his start with Team Sandtastic, working on an installation for Disney. More recently, Harsch has been exhibiting creations at the Florida State Fair. Another Pinellas resident, Dean Arscott, is new to the festival this year. Arscott was born and raised in central Maryland. He graduated from Ringling College of Art & Design in 2008, and now resides in Gulfport. He works on a wide variety of illustration and design projects in addition to carving with Team Sandtastic.

By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Improvements for the Park Street/Starkey Road corridor have been a part of Pinellas Countys Comprehensive Plan since 1989. Until recently, the project consisted of building a six-lane divided roadway from Tyrone Boulevard to East Bay Drive. But now county staff is proposing new parameters they say will better meet current needs. Al Bartolotta, section manager with the countys Planning Department and Metropolitan Planning Organization, updated commissioners during the March 18 regular meeting on recommendations from a consultant team asked to reevaluate the project. He showed a chart of 2010 traffic projections made in 1989 and real numbers from 2012. The most drastic change, down by 91 percent, was the estimate for the Tyrone Boulevard to Park Boulevard segment. In 1989, experts projected the annual average daily traffic on that segment would increase to 46,900. Actual numbers in the Pinellas County 2012 LOS (level of service) Report showed an AADT of 24,500. Those same experts projected an AADT of 39,800 for the Park Boulevard to Bryan Dairy Road segment. Numbers reported in 2012, showed a 45 percent decrease to 27,400. Thats a big difference in numbers, Bartolotta said. The downward trend in traffic coincides with the decline in the countys population from 2000 to 2010. Meanwhile came the economic downturn and there was no money to implement the project and it stalled. So staff took the opportunity to revisit the project with help from the design consultant. Bartolotta used a map to show significant areas near the corridor where people live in poverty. Those people are not driving, he said. Theyre utilizing the bus, biking and walking. An analysis of the corridor revealed areas with no sidewalks, some with no contiguous sidewalks and bus stops that consist of just signs sitting on swells, he said. He pointed out that there were other modes of travel besides cars and safety had to be a primary concern. Six lanes dont mix well with safety, he said. Ken Jacobs, manager with the countys Traffic Division, said the corridor study involved creating balance to solve congestion and capacity problems. Staff now believes capacity enhancements can be made without making the entire corridor six lanes. He pointed out that transitions between six lanes and four lanes and around intersections would be critical. Its a balancing act the need for capacity and the need for pedestrians and bicyclists, he said. Staff is focused on making sure investments already made for the project are being used. These investments include prior design plans, permits and rights of way already purchased. Consultant Chris Lovett with Engineering Services URS Corporation in Tampa explained proposed plans for the different segments. The design maintains a minimum 19.5 median width for separation of the two-way traffic and provides left-turn lanes. The minimum lane width is 11 feet. The existing stormwater conveyance system will be used. Bus pads and connecting sidewalks will be incorporated. A continuous sidewalk along each side of the corridor away from the curb where right of way permits also is included, as are continuous bike lanes along each side of the road. Five intersections are targeted for capacity improvements, including Park Street at Tyrone Boulevard, Park Street at Park Boulevard, Starkey Road at Bryan Dairy Road, Starkey Road at Ulmerton Road and Starkey Road at East Bay Drive. The intersections are currently failing or will fail in the future, staff said. The goal is to improve the capacity at the intersection but not overbuild the links between. Transitions from the intersections to the narrow links are critical. The 7.5-mile project is divided into six segments with Segment 1 divided into three with sub-segments. County and MPO staff have been working with the cities of Seminole and Largo to address concerns. The section of Park Street from Tyrone Boulevard to north of 86th Avenue North, primarily on the west side, is adjacent to land within the city of Seminole. The section of Starkey Road from south of Ulmerton Road to East Bay Drive goes through the city of Largo. The remainder is located in unincorporated Pinellas.The segments Segment 1A runs from Tyrone Boulevard to See PARK STREET/STARKEY ROAD, page 7A See RADIO, page 9A Sweetbay grocery stores switching to Winn-DixieBi-Lo Holdings LLC, the parent company of BI-LO and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, has announced it will begin to rebrand six Pinellas County Sweetbay stores into Winn-Dixie stores. The stores will close on April 5 and reopen on April 11. The stores affected are in Seminole at 10202 Seminole Blvd., St. Pete Beach, 7625 Blind Pass Road; South Pasadena, 6851 Gulfport Blvd. It also affects three St. Petersburg stores at 2139 34th St. N., 7491 Fourth St. N., and 3327 Ninth St. N. The six Pinellas stores are among 18 in the Tampa Bay area to make the change. Upon reopening as a Winn-Dixie, we believe customers will be pleasantly surprised to see that we have been working hard to provide the fresh, quality products they want at prices they can afford, said Joey Medina, Winn-Dixies regional vice president. Plus, we will offer a suite of in-store savings programs, like the fuelperks! Reward Program, which lets customers earn incredible savings at participating Shell stations every time they shop with their Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card. Other savings programs include: The Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card, which is a free membership card that allows customers to take advantage of deals when presented at checkout; Dependable Deals that freeze prices on hundreds of essential items for a 10-week period; $4 and $10 generic prescription savings, plus discounts on many name-brand medications; Weekly savings solutions through Buy One, Get One Free items, 10 for $10 and Meal Deals, which offers great prices on a variety of fresh meal packs for the family; and e-coupons, which are a way to load savings to Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card and have them redeemed automatically with a swipe of the card at the register. While the name on the storefronts is changing, the people running them dont have to, said Medina. Weve invited Sweetbay associates to join the Winn-Dixie family and look forward to exchanging what it means to be local as we work together to run even greater stores. Bi-Lo Holdings LLC, the parent company of BI-LO and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, is the ninth-largest conventional supermarket chain in the United States based on net sales.

Pink balloons. Pink banners. Pink labels on grocery items. It was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; its hard to go anywhere without being overwhelmed by pink in October. The 10-year-old asked his mother why there was so much visible support for breast cancer but none for childhood cancer awareness. The month prior, doctors had discovered a tumor on his brain stem, and at the time of the shopping trip, Ethan was only a month into 35 rounds of radiation treatment. His mother, Natalie Fabac, didnt have an answer for him. But when she went home and did some research, she learned that September had been National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. And I had no idea, she said. And I had a child just diagnosed with cancer. So think of all the people out there who dont know about it.So she decided to do something.

Two were baseball games, the USF Bulls and the Tampa Bay Rays, and the other two were my girls softball games. As I was thinking about the games, I was reminded about how good it is for kids to be involved in sports. My two daughters have been playing sports since they were 4 and 5 years old. The first sport they wanted to play was tennis. I think they started out with tennis because their cousins played tennis. The next sport was soccer, then T-ball, baseball and this year, theyre playing softball. Being in sports has helped my girls in so many ways. They learn how to win and to lose. They learn how to play as a team and as an individual. They learn how to work for a goal. They also learn camaraderie and sportsmanship. Another benefit is they are exercising. Since my kids are young, only 8 and 9 years old, they are still learning how to play. This is the first year they have played softball. Most of the kids on the team are learning the positions, how to throw, pitch and catch. In just a few weeks, I have already seen an improvement. My husband and I always try to encourage our kids. Sometimes they get upset if they strike out, dont get a hit or make a bad play. While we were at the Rays spring training game, we were able to show the girls that even the professionals strike out and dont get hits every time. They even make errors, but they dont let it get them down and they get right back in the game. My daughter Graci and I attended the USF baseball game to watch one of my sisters sing the national anthem. While we were there, we not only saw the baseball game, but also had the chance to see the girls softball team play for a few minutes. It was a great chance to tell my daughter that if she gets good enough, she could get a scholarship and play softball for college if she wants. By the way, if you havent been to USF for a game, its pretty neat how the baseball and softball fields are right next to each other. The stadiums are beautiful and kids get in free to the games. Its a wonderful experience. Graci even got to be the kid announcer during the fourth inning and go into the press box to announce the Bulls players who were batting that inning. That made her day! I know from my own experience that when I was playing sports and going to school, I didnt have time to do much else. I played soccer, basketball and softball. I wasnt good enough to go to college on a scholarship, but I still enjoyed playing. I think it was even more important for kids to play sports in middle and high school because those are the years that kids seem to get into trouble if they dont have anything to do. When you are involved in sports, you dont have time to be bored and get into trouble. The other good thing is you have to keep up your grades to play sports. Most kids like playing sports, so they get good grades. I encourage parents to help your kids find a sport they like to do, whether its a team sport or an individual sport.

Giving backLARGO Seminole High School senior Anthony Zsido, son of Daniel and Michele Zsido, earned the rank of Eagle Scout at his board of review Jan. 13. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor and dinner will honor Anthony and two other Scouts Saturday, April 5, at Blessed Sacrament banquet hall in Seminole. For his Eagle Scout project, Anthony designed, built and installed six park benches along the Preservation 2000 nature trail just east of the Botanical Gardens in Largo. He coordinated the Scout troop and volunteers to complete the project. Anthony joined the Cub Scouts along with his father, who also is an Eagle Scout, when he was in the first grade. Through the years, they were involved in numerous community projects and camp-outs and had the honor to attend the 100th anniversary of The Boy Scouts of America in 2010 at the National Scout jamboree, at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. Eagle Scouts are required to earn 21 merit badges to complete the requirements necessary to achieve this highest honor in scouting. Anthony exceeded this by earning a total of 39 badges and also held many positions within Troop 431 such as scribe, patrol leader and mentor. While involved in scouting, Anthony also played saxophone in the Seminole Middle and Seminole High School bands. For three of his four years in high school, he played football for the Seminole Warhawks. Anthony plans to continue his education in exercise science and business management at St. Petersburg College and the University of South Florida.Photo by KADI HENDRICKS TUBBSGraci Tubbs, center, helped announce the lineup during the fourth inning of the USF Bulls Baseball game on March 16.

Mom 2 MomKadi Hendricks Tubbs Seminole student earns Eagle Scout rank Anthony Zsido CANCER, from page 1A Ethan Fabac, a fifth-grader at Seminole Elementary School, is recovering from brain cancer. His battle with the illness is his mothers inspiration for a Sept. 13 walk at the recreation center to raise awareness of childhood cancer.leading cause of death by disease in children and adolescents in the United States. That night made me realize that I had to do something to support my son, Natalie said. Theres a lot of children with cancer and you just dont know it. These kids need to know they have the support. Now shes on the hunt for local businesses to sponsor what she hopes will become an annual event.A mother knows It all started with a headache and a trip to the emergency room last August. Doctors didnt find anything major wrong with Ethan, though, and sent him home. Weeks later, he had another bad headache, which led to another ER visit. Both times he was misdiagnosed and sent home, Natalie said. But a mother knows her son best. During his third emergency room visit, she insisted Ethan have an MRI. She had researched brain tumors and had a gut feeling that something wasnt right with her son. They discovered a tumor, a Grade II Ependymoma, growing on his brain stem. He was diagnosed on Sept. 3 and was in surgery at All Childrens Hospital by the next day. After I found out I had to have surgery, I was super scared, Ethan said. But then they told me I would be asleep for it and I felt better about it. Hes so tough, Natalie said. Hes stayed stronger than his Mommy through all of this.TreatmentAfter surgery, the radiation treatments began. Several times a week, Natalie would take Ethan to Tampa for treatments, worrying the whole time about whether the tumor would grow back. But what Ethan remembers the most from these trips is the snarling rush hour traffic. We had to drive so far for it, he said. And the traffic was so bad. It took forever to get there and to get home. Natalie considered entering him into clinical trials, but backed out when she learned they werent usually effective on Ethans type of cancer. At the time, he was entering fifth grade at Seminole Elementary School. Following surgery, he had to be homeschooled. But he made principals list, Natalie said. And since going back in January, he hasnt missed a single day of school. Friends visited him at home, and they distracted him with the things 10-year-old boys like to do: playing video games, fishing. In fact, grabbing a rod and reel and heading to local docks with friends and family became his favorite pastime. [Fishing] started to click for me, he said. I just started catching a lot of things. And he likes to show off his battle wound a scar that begins at the nape of his neck and travels upwards several inches. Physically hes doing pretty well now, Natalie said. But he needs to have his brain scanned every three months. We have to live month to month with the scans for the next five years, she said. I have to keep an eye on him. Im always on edge. Every headache becomes something more.AshleyCan FoundationThroughout Ethans illness, social media has been a life support for Natalie. In various online forums and Facebook groups, shes met other moms with children battling cancer around the country, many with the exact same cancer Ethan had. One of the women she met was Maureen Montgomery, whose daughter, Ashley Montgomery, also was diagnosed with Ependymoma. The Montgomery family lives in Illinois, about 50 miles south of Chicago. In 2001, when Ashley was 9, doctors discovered a tumor growing on Ashleys brain stem. They did everything right: surgery, radiation, brain scans every three months, then every six months, and as Ashley got older, just once a year. Ashley was cancer-free for nearly seven years, when they discovered the tumor had grown back. She was 16, just months shy of turning 17, and the doctors were surprised it had returned. This time around they treated it even more aggressively, Maureen said, but there was always the chance that the treatment itself could kill her daughter. And much like Natalie, Maureen didnt know that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and that the cause has adopted the color gold, much like breast cancer uses pink, to rally support. When she learned this, she wanted to do more. In 2009, Maureen formed the AshleyCan Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The organization held its first fundraiser, a 5K race, in 2011. All of the proceeds go to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital, the world leader in childrens cancer research. Ashley, today 23, is vice president of the foundation, frequently speaks at childhood cancer awareness events and is attending college. Though Ashley is cancer free now, the family is still determined to help the cause. Were trying to make even a little bit of a difference so no other family has to go through what we went through, Maureen said. And now shes branching out to other states. Childhood cancer has no state lines; it has no boundaries, she said. Natalies Seminole event is the first out-of-state event Maureen is helping to organize. The Sept. 13 walk will coincide with the Illinois event and National Childhood Cancer Awareness Day.Getting organizedThough shes overwhelmed by the scope of what shes trying to accomplish, Natalie is determined. Ive never done anything like this before, she said. But we need something like this in Seminole. We need to raise money for [childhood cancer] research and awareness of the need for funding. She added, I wish we didnt have to be part of something like this. But we need to raise awareness for our community. Shes already booked space at the citys Holland G. Mangum Recreation Complex for the Sept. 13 walk. And through social media, shes found some help locally. Jamie Smitte, whose father succumbed to cancer two years ago and founded Quilts of Hope, which makes quilts for children with cancer, has offered her assistance. Both she and Maureen have been amazing, Natalie said. Theyve been absolutely wonderful. Now shes seeking local business sponsors to step up and support their cause shes been knocking on doors and making cold calls as well as volunteers for the day of the race. Were hoping its a huge event, she said. Were just hoping we can pull it off. For more information about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, email Natalie at prayersforethan@live.com.

TORRESLARGO Computer equipment valued at $59,805 was delivered to a home in Canada Feb. 19 before Tech Data, an international IT distributor based in Largo, realized their customer had been a victim of a Russian cybercrime. The company has Largo police detectives to thank for helping to recover more than $20,000 of the equipment before it was shipped overseas, likely to Russia or possibly Ukraine, said Tech Data fraud manager Scott Heim. The scam started with a Zeus virus or a similar variant that infected one of their customers computers, Heim said. The virus, specifically a keylogger Trojan, was designed to track keystrokes and relay the user names and passwords, even online banking credentials, back to the cybercriminals, who then were able to log on to Tech Data Canadas website as the victim and place an order using their account. Heim said its a problem the company has been dealing with in the United States and Canada for about two years. All the major tech distributors are dealing with the same activity, he explained. In fact, any company that provides electronic commerce access for its customers has to defend against these types of attacks, he said. Rarely, however, is such an attack on Tech Datas websites successful. We catch almost all of them. Its less than 1 percent that actually get fulfilled, Heim said. Slips though, occasionally will occur, and its nice to know that we have partners with law enforcement that can jump on this for us. In this case, the order requesting 50 different items was placed Feb. 17 and shipped to a home in Laval, Quebec, later that day. When Tech Data identified the order as fraudulent, the company contacted UPS to try to stop the delivery, but the equipment had already arrived about an hour beforehand, at 8:04 a.m. Feb. 19. The company contacted the Largo Police Department to help intercept the stolen merchandise. Canadian authorities usually are reluctant to take up a case based on a private referral, Heim said. So Largos Detective Lara Young coordinated with police officials in Canada to obtain a search warrant at the address of the delivery. Canadian authorities arrested two people and were able to recover some of the stolen computer equipment, according to Largo police. Police Lt. Stephen Slaughter said he was proud of the investigative services division for their quick action. They jumped on the case within hours or the rest of the shipped equipment would have been gone, he said. More than $30,000 worth of equipment was not recovered from the Quebec home. Its our belief that its already gone to Russia, and theres not been great cooperation with the Russian authorities, Slaughter said. Heim said that in his experience tracing similar attacks through email communications and IP addresses, they almost always tie back to locations in Russia, typically in the St. Petersburg area. The two who were arrested arent cooperating, meaning that the equipment still unaccounted for likely wont be recovered, Heim said, though Canadian authorities continue to investigate. We want businesses to be aware and maintain their virus protection software. This is what can happen, Slaughter said. Offenders know that time is on their side. The two who were arrested are most likely unwitting participants in the scheme, charged with receiving the equipment and reshipping it overseas in a work-at-home set-up, Heim said. Its likely they wont know much of those behind the fraud anyway, Slaughter said. They wouldnt want somebody to have that much intimate knowledge, he explained. Heim said Tech Data has a system in place to track its customers order trends. An atypical order that is sent via expedited shipping to a residential address, as opposed to a business, will be flagged for manual review. If its found to be fraud, it will be canceled. Tech Data will follow up with its customer in this particular case, a Canadian IT reseller to let them know theyve been infected with a virus and walk them through what needs to be done to fix it. We would warn them too, its not just going to be Tech Data, but their other supplier accounts, Heim said. Cybercriminals usually order equipment like laptop computers, processors and hard drives. Since whatever they obtain is almost 100 percent profit, they can sell the equipment for prices dramatically less than their real worth. Theyre obviously selling on black market, Heim said. Still he said he was pleased with the collaboration with Largo police to jump all over this and recover some of the stolen merchandise.Most of Tech Datas corporate campus is within Largo city limits, at 5350 Tech Data Drive, near the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. The company is in the process of building a new 46,800-square-foot office building on the campus, according to Largo economic development documents.

This was the Third Day of creation hence the name of our company, Third Day Landscaping 54th Avenue North. Current plans call for a four-lane urban roadway. The project completes the connection to 46th Avenue and addresses pedestrian safety concerns in the area. Design cost is $215,000 and construction $4.9 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2017-18. Segment 1B from 54th Avenue North to the Cross Bayou Canal Bridge is a four-lane project with a transition from 62nd Avenue to the sixlane bridge. It includes improvements for pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design cost is estimated at $215,000 and construction $5.3 million. It currently is not funded. 1C will be a six-lane road running from the south side of the bridge to 84th Lane North. Plans include widening of the functionally obsolete existing bridge to bring it up to standards and provide bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Design costs are budgeted at $220,000 and construction $4.6 million. It is funded and scheduled for construction in fiscal year 2015-16. Segments 2, 3 and 4 also will be a 6-lane road. Segment 2 runs from 84th Lane North to 82nd Avenue North and Segment 3 from 82nd Avenue North to 106th Avenue North. Segment 4 goes from 106th Avenue North to north of Bryan Dairy Road. Segment 2 includes an extended intersection improvement project to improve flow at Park Boulevard. Design cost is budgeted at $134,000 and construction $5.2 million. It is funded for construction in fiscal year 2016-17. Segment 3 addresses continuity, pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design cost is estimated at $236,000 and construction $9.5 million. The project is not currently budgeted. Segment 4 provides improved traffic flow and connection to the Bryan Dairy Road project, Starkey Road to 72nd Street. Design cost was $63,000 and construction $4.2 million. The project is currently under construction. Segment 5, which runs from north of Bryan Dairy Road to 130th Avenue North, will be a 4lane road with design features to address pedestrian and multimodal safety concerns. Design costs are estimated at $220,000 and construction $6.2 million. Segment 5 is not currently funded. Plans for segment 6 call for a 5-lane road, three going northbound and two southbound. The project addresses traffic flow especially between Ulmerton Road and East Bay Drive and pedestrian and multimodal safety. Design is estimated to cost $550,000 and construction $8.8 million. The project is not currently funded. Lovett estimated cost for the unfunded segments at about $30 million. He said segments had been funded putting those with prior investments design costs and purchases of permits or right of way at the top of the list. The next consideration was need. This will give the biggest bang for the taxpayers money, Lovett said. County Administrator Bob LaSala said he did not know if additional money for the project would be available until it gets closer to the end of collection of the current Penny for Pinellas. The road project first appeared on the Penny for Pinellas funding list in 1989. Commission Chair Karen Seel pointed out that costs for the three funded segments were less than budgeted. We might have some funding for another segment, she said. PARK STREET/STARKEY ROAD, from page 1A Florida lawmakers pass tax relief bill By SUZETTE PORTERUnanimous votes by Floridas House and Senate leaves the fate of $395 million in tax relief in the hands of Gov. Rick Scott. The bill passed March 18 by the Senate and March 20 by the House reduces certain annual vehicle registration fees, totaling $395 million in savings. Starting Sept. 1, fees to register a motor vehicle will drop to the amount paid prior to 2009. Registration costs will go down by $25.05 for heavy weight vehicles, $21.55 for middleweight vehicles and $18.55 for lightweight vehicles. The legislature increased vehicle registration fees to help balance the budget in 2009, when state general revenue collections declined more than 22 percent since their high in 2005-2006, officials said. Now, theyre reversing that action. Gov. Scott praised the Senate for passing the bill. He released a statement March 18 that talked about how critical the bill was to his $500 million Its Your Money campaign. This tax cut will let families keep nearly $400 million of their hard-earned money in their own pockets, Scott said. Pinellas County Tax Collector Diane Nelson took a proactive stand to help local residents save money. On March 12, well before the legislature voted on the measure, Nelson removed the twoyear renewal option from motor vehicle renewal notices. If this bill passes, I want to give Pinellas County residents the opportunity to take advantage of the savings it will offer, Nelson said in a press release. I would be disheartened if someone missed out on the opportunity to save money because they were not informed of the pending legislation and potential savings. In 2013, 9 percent of Pinellas County residents took advantage of the biennial registration. A conservative estimate of $12.50 in annual savings per registration shows that Pinellas County residents would save approximately $500,000 by holding off on biennial renewals until the new rates are established, Nelson said. However, residents can still renew their registrations for two years if they prefer. They need to write two year renewal on their registration renewal return card and double the amount to be paid. There is no cost advantage with two-year registration renewals, they are offered as a matter of convenience, Nelson said. For more information, visit www.taxcollect.com. House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz announced in January details of a five-point Work Plan 2014, which prioritized tax relief. A reduction on annual vehicle registration fees was one of the five. The House and Senate have already passed two others, legislation to protect Floridas children from sexual predators as well as the Florida GI Bill. The GI Bill increases education and employment opportunities for the states veterans, including an increase in funding for Educational Dollars for Duty. It also allows out-of-state veterans to receive in-state tuition rates through the C.W. Bill Young Veteran Tuition Waiver Program. The bill provides $300,000 to Visit Florida to spend to encourage veterans to make Florida their home. It also enhances hiring preferences for veterans and spouses of veterans who died in combat for government jobs and allows private employers to do the same. Four separate bills were passed to increase protections against sexual offenders. The two remaining points are Economic Opportunity through Education and Improve Government Accountability and Efficiency.

New website reveals countys spendingCLEARWATER A new Spending in the Sunshine website allows users to view financial transactions by the Clerk and the Circuit Court and Pinellas County Commissioners. The website is the latest offering by the county to provide citizens an electronically accessed, transparent view of government activities. The Spending in the Sunshine website allows users to view detailed financial transactions down to the invoice level, and if applicable, the check number and funding source across both departments. The site offers multiple methods of searching for information under various categories including by vendor, department and spending. The site also provides records of salary expenditures for employees under both entities. Tutorial videos are placed on each tab of the site to help users navigate the different functions associated with each type of search. Users also are able to export data into multiple programs. Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke requested the in-house project be developed to offer citizens an easy-to-use, convenient way to view government spending. I am very pleased that all Pinellas County citizens will now be able to open the books, so to speak, and view government spending on their behalf, Burke said. I wanted to eliminate any barrier to being absolutely transparent. With Spending in the Sunshine, I believe we have accomplished just that a companion piece to the states sunshine laws regarding open record keeping.The project was led by Clerk of the Circuit Court Internet technology staff and developed by staff in Pinellas Countys Business Technology Services division, leveraging the countys recent investment in the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise business planning and financial application.To view the Spending in the Sunshine website, visit www.pinellasclerk.org and click on the Spending in the Sunshine tab at the top of the page.

March 29 11am-4pmBounce House & Fun Activities a knack for media and promotions. So he got out of the family business and launched Life Improvement Media Group. There are two facets to the interactive media company, Remmel said. The first offers other businesses all of the promotional techniques, technologies and resources needed to succeed. We have all the pieces of the puzzle for anything anyone might want to do, he said. The second facet his real passion is Life Improvement Radio, a free Internet radio station with two platforms: a slate of daytime, PG-rated, educational-based shows and Life Improvement Radio After Dark, which features musicand entertainment-based nighttime programming where anything goes. When LIR first started five years ago, it was the only Internet station in Pinellas County, Remmel said. And at the time, people had a much different perception of the online format. People have really been down on Internet radio, said Remmel, who has also hosted several shows on the station, including Your Media Guys. It was like the wicked stepchild of radio. But in just a few years, technology has improved so much that its really changed the marketplace, he said. Traditional radio stations are drying up. Many mainstream stations, such as 102.5 The Bone and 98.7 The Fan, have changed over to a talk format, and more Internet stations are popping up as the technology is refined. Currently, there are around 40 shows offered on LIRs daytime format, and 20 nighttime programs. But these numbers fluctuate, Remmel said. He launches new shows each month. And his daytime shows get between 4 million and 5 million listeners each year. His After Dark programming, which launched last April, so far has about 1 million listeners, and he expects this number to grow significantly in its second year. Velva Lee Heraty recently launched a show, Lets Talk Life, with LIR on Saturdays from 10 to 11 a.m. I was just so impressed with Erik and his show, she said. Shed considered starting a show with another local Internet station, but was turned off by how unorganized and unprofessional it was. They were way, way in over their heads, she said. So she jumped at the chance when Remmel offered her a show on LIR. He had the right platform, the right attitude and the technical skills, she said. Its been an absolute blessing working with Life Improvement Radio. Its wonderful to be part of a community of creative people and innovators. Now Remmels focus is on growing the station. Hes started an online crowd funding campaign at igg.me/p/705216. Hes hoping to raise $26,000 to move the station into a larger studio that will allow him to focus on his commitment to the community. Not only will he be able to better serve his listening audience, but local businesses, musicians and artists as well. Were the best-kept secret in St. Pete, Remmel said.

For Clay Folden, 26, of Harbor Bluffs it was the gift of a 35mm camera from his father when he was in middle school that led to a career in photography and a certain amount of fame in the emerging world of drone flying. Folden, who graduated from Seminole High School and now lives in Los Angeles, said his foray into using drones in his photography work was borne out of necessity. Photography is a very competitive market, he said. Everybody these days has a $40,000 camera and I cant compete with that. But my work in aerial photography got me a lot of attention. The drones, or aerial platforms as they are officially known, are roughly 18 inches in diameter and are remotely controlled. A camera is mounted on or in the drone and the photographer does the flying. They provide unique or novel shots that used to be impossible. They are usually in close quarters with tight maneuverings, said Folden. Folden said he found out about the drones from his uncle who noticed some aerial shots in an article he was reading. He did some research and discovered the drones. Folden said that was just over a year ago. Shortly after that a company came out with an affordable system, I got one and made my first video, he said. Right now Im working with a production company but I am getting my own production company. Folden remembers that first video and said it would have been impossible to do with his budget. That first video I shot with the aerial platform involved aerial shots of the Capital Records building in Los Angeles, he said. Without the drone I would have needed a crane or a cherry picker. Another time I shot a Shelby Mustang racing through the back streets in Manhattan. Before the drone we would have had to shut down whole streets and run another car alongside. This was a lot easier and much more efficient. Echoing those sentiments is local photographer Wayne Cathel, 53, of Belleair Bluffs, who has been a photographer for the past 10 years. He said as soon as he heard about the aerial platforms he wanted to get one. I came across them in a forum I was attending, he said. I thought what a great way to get above the subject. I have always wanted to get over and above; I have always wanted to get the shot from a higher vantage point. Cathel said he started out with baby steps using a drone. I bought a $99 one in a hobby store. It was supposed to simulate a real one. I learned how to operate it the hard way, in my house. I knocked over lamps and crashed into walls, but it is better to do it that way than to get an expensive one and crash it into a tree. It wasnt long before Cathel got himself a more expensive drone. First, one that cost $1,500, then later a $3,000 version. He said the more rotor blades on the drone the more stable they are. He too remembers his first video. It was in Dunedin at the sight of that big sinkhole that opened up earlier this year, he said. I was able to fly a camera down into the hole and was able to help the authorities find where they had to move the dirt to stabilize the hole. Since then Cathel says he has worked with Realtors and builders to get aerial shots for their promotions or to help with their projects. Airplanes and helicopters are very expensive, he said. I can get the same shots at a lower altitude and I can actually fly into a house if I need to. Cathel, whose company is Belleairimages.net, said there are safety concerns when flying a drone. I think there should be regulations because you need to know how to use them, he said. I follow the guidelines; stay away from crowds, stay five miles from any airport and do a pre-flight check to make sure everything is secure. There is a safety factor. Ironically, up until now photographers like Cathel and Folden have not been able to charge money for any shots they get from the aerial platforms. The Federal Aviation Authority has denied them the ability to profit from their work with drones. That could be changing, however. Recently a federal court judge ruled that the FAA had no authority to enforce their rules. It is something Folden has been waiting for. We have been pushing them to change those regulations, he said. I am meeting a lot of people who want my work and in anticipation of the FAA changing the regulations I have been investing in new equipment. Folden, whose mom, Julie, is a Realtor with Coastal Properties Group in IRB, and whose dad Gary is a charter boat captain out of the Clearwater Marina, has won awards for his work. He said it is a career that is just beginning. I know I have found my niche in this market, he said. It has gotten me a lot of attention. This will take my time for some time to come.

Lori Karns had already dunked a one shotter on the 15th of the same course earlier in the day. Zoromski smashed a 3-wood into the wind on the 12th hole and Lori stroked a 9-wood into the cup on the 15th hole. Some of our members were very happy since they played on the correct day to get a double dose of free drinks. On Feb. 20, Kim Schumacher aced the 13th hole of the east course with her 9-wood. She also earned a crack at winning $1 million at the Val-Spar Championship at Innisbrook. All local golfers who had a hole-in-one during a recent period were eligible to repeat the feat at the Val-Spar Championship. No one scored another ace but all enjoyed the opportunity.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, March 27, 2014We reveal who we are in several ways: how we speak, what we eat, our styles of dress, what we laugh at, what makes us angry or happy, and so on. Also, how we drive our cars. Or so says Emanuel W. Ricochet, Ph.D., director of the Final Skidoo Research Institute of Elkins, Ky. He has studied thousands of motorists, trying to link their personalities and backgrounds to the way they operate their motor vehicles under varied situations. For example, Dr. Ricochet says he has learned that red-haired women with dimples tend to flirt with other motorists more frequently than non-dimpled women with dark hair. When asked why this is true, Dr. Ricochet said, It has something to do with genetics as it relates to the Big Bang and the invention of the hydramatic shift by Olds or Ford by one of those guys. One of their wives was red-haired and dimpled, and things just sort of went out of control from that point. Other findings of the FSRI are as follows: Presbyterians aged 50 and over seldom check their rear-view and side mirrors before passing other cars. The FSRI report said, These normally well-mannered folks eventually get tired of straggling along behind the other guy. When this happens they suddenly pull out and give it the gas. Our best guess is that Presbyterians believe in pre-destination, which says when your time is up theres not much you can do about it. So why waste time looking out for other cars? Motorists who text while driving are usually lousy spellers. Researchers learned this by examining the cellphones of drivers who were killed or seriously injured in highway crashes. The low level of the drivers intelligence was indicated not only by their texting while driving, but also by their inability to correctly spell such common words as awesome and Miley Cyrus. Drivers who engage in cosmetic behavior, such as shaving or putting on makeup while underway, tend to have shorter life spans than persons who pay close attention to recommended safety measures. An FSRI report said, Motorists who persist in checking their facial appearance in the rear-view mirror are usually self-centered, narcissistic and frequently dead. Michigan residents who move to Florida tend to believe that Florida has the worst drivers in the nation. Florida motorists feel the same way about Canadian motorists. Fewer than 6 percent of drivers in any state believe that local drivers are competent and trustworthy. An unusually high percentage of male drivers arrested for road-rage behavior were found to possess active prescriptions for Viagra, Cialis and other erectile dysfunction drugs. FSRI physicians said, Although we cannot prove any necessary connection between road rage and sexual frustration, we suspect that one exists. If Sigmund Freud were still alive were sure he would see the link between a flaccid schwantstucher and its angry owner flipping the bird at other drivers. When interviewed, 44 percent of Pinellas County motorists said they did not realize that the left lane is the recommended one for passing another motorist. A typical response was, If Im in the left lane and going too slow, the other guy still has the right-hand lane to pass me, doesnt he? So whats the problem? Another local finding was that long-time Pinellas motorists often become confused while driving on Tyrone Boulevard and the few other hypotenuse streets that are found here. These are the streets that are not part of the standard north-south and east-west grid. The FSRI said, When these drivers suddenly realize they are traveling northwest or southeast, they become disoriented and afraid that they have been somehow transported to Boston or other cities with street plans designed by drunken madmen. According to the FSRI research, politically conservative drivers and liberal drivers are not much different from each other when it comes to safety, road courtesy, and obeying traffic laws. However, some contrasts do exist. Conservatives have better hearing, because they choose to listen to gospel music and Rush Limbaugh broadcasts, which can be performed at a lower volume. Many liberals especially those under age 25 are slightly deaf from playing rock music so loudly that the resulting vibrations loosen dental fillings of motorists in nearby cars. Dr. Ricochet said he looks forward to an upcoming study in which motorists will be asked about their attitudes toward car manufacturers. He said, We want to find motorists reaction to recent news stories in which General Motors and Toyota were revealed as callous, profit-hungry and contemptuous of their customers safety. In the face of these findings, motorists who persist in driving GM and Toyota vehicles are likely to score high on our naive and downright stupid scales. Or perhaps well just call them adventurous risk-takers.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Study: Who we are is how we drive Drivers SeatBob Driver Floridians menaced by inflation Hotel preservationists should heed common senseEditors: Opinions are like noses, we all have one. However, to vehemently espouse preserving the Belleview Biltmore hotel without the facts is divisive and causing our town of Belleair to choose sides. You have lost sight of the fact that the town does not own the hotel. It is a private enterprise and not part of the towns Parks and Recreation Department. Your anger and frustration is misdirected. Rather than chide the commission you should be chiding Kawa, Richard Heisenbottle, R.C. Johnson and D. Hein, all consummate prevaricators. They have been dangling the carrot in front of you and twisting the facts. Some of you have suggested the commissioners insist the present owners sell only to those who will restore the hotel. Can you imagine telling you whom you can market your home to? Have you never heard of private property rights? Some are jumping the gun and drawing conclusions without knowing the facts, i.e. Cheezems cheesy cookie cutter condo clusters. If you would wait, like youre asking us to wait, youd hear Mr. Cheezems plan rather than using your clever alliteration, which is counterproductive. We have waited patiently for five years for Heisenbottle to close the deal. How much longer can we wait? We have heard you, many from out of town, pound on the podium calling the hotel the heart and soul of Belleair. If that be the case, the town should be dead, as the hotel has been shuttered since January 2009. Your untruths and inaccuracies coupled with baseless accusations border on slander. Youre noisy, fact-baiting and are often irrational. Heres a partial list of your preposterous, inaccurate statements: Shovel ready project scheduled to start Jan. of 2013; economic feasibility has been validated by financers who will fund it; there are legitimate groups making offers to buy and restore; give Heisenbottle more time, there are more buyers in the wings; construction of townhomes and condos would almost certainly decrease the property values of existing condos; the hotel is in good condition and can be restored. As late as February Heisenbottle said, I have a solid commitment, were very close to a deal. These investors with the funds are as illusive as Ms. Hein. Ive asked numerous people, including reporters, if theyve ever set eyes on this woman who has a propensity for stirring up the pot with misleading statements. They all deny having met her. Not so for Ms R.C. Johnson, who is a regular at town meetings with her charts and documents. Johnson continues to question the credentials of our town attorney and our city planner. I ask where are her credentials and those of her minions who shout, accuse and disrupt, insisting the hotel can be restored? You are waiting for a miracle that is not coming, grasping at straws, and dreaming of preservation that is too expensive to come true. Commissioner Stephen Fowler, an avowed preservationist, said, Im saying slow down, with the economy recovering, Im firmly convinced that its doable. This from a man who admits to not being a money kind of guy. You have been comparing the Belleview Biltmore Hotel to the Don CeSar and the Vinoy, which is like comparing a funeral to a wedding; the Don being on the beach and the Vinoy being in the heart of a vibrant city on the waterfront. Maybe plans to renovate the hotel were too complicated and grandiose. There was never a Plan B suggested. We now have one being presented by Mike Cheezem, which entails a mixed-use approach. Lets listen to his plan and listen with our heads and not our hearts. It appears that common sense may be prevailing and preserving the hotel may no longer be a viable option. So please step away from the podium, cease and desist writing vitriolic accusatory letters and emails and let capitalism work. Lil Cromer BelleairIn memory of NikkiEditor: Do you know what rat poison looks like? After what happened to me, please find out. On Saturday, Feb. 22, my beautiful, yellow Labrador, Nikki, died from ingesting rat poison. Somehow, rat poison found its way into my backyard. I know this because I found some there after Nikki passed. The piece I found was a bright green color with specks. It didnt look dangerous. It looked like something a child might pick up to play with (see photo, however, it comes in many forms). I was told that either an animal dragged it into my yard from a neighbors yard or that someone threw it over my fence. I have lived in Belleair for 26 years, and never in a million years, could I imagine that my sweet, loving dog would be poisoned. Please find out what rat poison looks like. You can Google rat poison images. Please find out. It is horrific to watch your dog die from ingesting rat poison. My hope is that this announcement will inform people, so this does not happen again. It would give me solace to know that Nikki did not die in vain. Melinda Moreschi BelleairToo much commercialism on the beachEditor: Dear Treasure Island decision makers and all visitors of the beach: I am writing today about the boats pulling blimps and the planes dragging banners along the beaches. We are inundated with commercialism at every turn, in every corner, and at a constant and furious pace. Why? Please. Why does the city of Treasure Island allow this to happen in a place that residents and tourist alike go to vacate the madness? We want to hear surf, birds, and the voice of a person sitting next to us, not the roar of a small plane slowly dragging a banner that propels us back to the real world and makes us wonder if our auto insurance offers the best rate. We dont want these thoughts. Weve gone to the beach to vacate our lives for a period of time, and residents and tourists alike pay a hefty price to do so. And yet, even here, we are victims to more calls to consumerism. For the love of peace and to uphold the value of what vacation and holiday should still embody, please forbid this activity in the air and water space of Treasure Island. Be trendsetters. Stand up for what is right. Protect the little bit of precious freedom we have from consumerism. If I wanted Miami Id go to Miami. Gina Tracy Treasure IslandKudos for Seminoles recycling programEditor: I recently visited the website of the city of Seminole. In particular, I visited the wonderful posting for the Department of Public Works. I am thrilled to learn that Waste Management will deliver 64-gallon recycle carts to residential customers in March 2014. The enhanced recycling program is scheduled to begin the first week of April 2014. Seminole residential customers will be able to place aluminum and steel cans, cardboard, cartons, all color glass, mixed paper, newspapers, and plastic bottles (with caps removed). Of course, NO plastic bags should be placed into the recycle cart. This is wonderful progress for Seminoles recycling program. Congratulations to the city for making this important program grow. Mary Hampton SeminoleInaction has consequencesEditor: In the March 13 issue or the Seminole Beacon I read Mr. Drivers column on being a stoic. What came to mind were the approximately 400,000 people registered to vote in Pinellas County who did not cast ballots in the election to fill C.W. Youngs congressional seat. Whatever belief a person may have Democracy to stay effective demands participation. Shame on such inaction because inaction in itself is action and has consequences. David Robinson St Petersburg Living today, even by Florida standards, is pricey. The average cost for a loaf of bread is $1.41 as opposed to $1.08 five years ago and 88 cents in 2000. The average per pound cost for bananas now is 62 cents, 50 cents five years ago, and 35 cents back in 1999. A pound of bacon is $4.54, $3.44 five years ago, and just $2.47 15 years ago. The average cost of a gallon of gasoline today is $3.50. In 2007 it was $2.80; $1.36 in 2002; $1.13 in 1992; 65 cents in 1977, and 31 cents in 1962. Im old enough to remember gas prices in the teens and when windshields were washed and oil, air and water was checked. The attendant waved farewell with a fist full of S&H Green Stamps. Today, big oil and other industries boast billions in profits while paychecks remain stagnant as skyrocketing living expenses crush Americans into submission. Even a trip to the happiest place of all ... Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom ... costs $99 plus tax. Thats in addition to a $15 parking fee and the inflated prices for food and soft drinks. Its outrageous to visit parks that are little more than glorified shopping malls for Disney merchandise. Working Americans feel the brunt of the challenges to meet everyday expenditures. Many companies are reducing manpower, hours and sending jobs overseas. Full timers who enjoyed company-paid medical care, sick leave, vacations and other benefits face demotion to part-time status to circumvent federal and state employment laws. One restaurant chain has even announced that it may soon add an employee insurance surcharge to meals. The Consumer Price Index indicates that it costs $3,632 in Tampa Bay to maintain the same standard of living that costs, for example, $6,500 in New York. That means consumer prices here are 23.87 percent lower. Renting an apartment or home is 65.80 percent higher in the Northeast, groceries are 19.57 percent lower in Tampa Bay, while overall purchasing power is 41.77 percent higher than in New York. Compared to other states, its still cheaper to live in Tampa Bay when state income taxes (we dont have them) are factored in, along with transportation costs ($13 to cross the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey), as opposed to less than $2 at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge tollbooth. Florida property taxes that seem excessive to some really are dirt-cheap. My property tax is less than $1,000 annually. The rate on a home I once owned in New Jersey nudges $11,000 ... thats eleven thousand dollars! Some may argue that workers in major U.S. cities earn more money than their counterparts in the Southeast. In Florida, for example, a customer service representative earns roughly $12 an hour while an administrative assistant rakes in a few pennies more. Statistically, Floridians earn 6 percent less than workers in most other states. Now lets take a look at our New York example where a customer service representative earns $43,000 annually. Meanwhile, the minimum wage worker will earn $8.75 an hour this coming December, and a quarter more to $9-an-hour in December 2015. Floridas minimum wage rose by 14 cents last January, or 68 cents higher than the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Thus, there are thousands of Americans holding on for dear life so they dont fall below the poverty line. So how does a low wage worker find money for the mortgage, rent, car payments, groceries, insurance, clothes, and all the other expenses on roughly $400 a week after taxes? They dont, and thats why so many gainfully employed workers depend on government subsidies for food, housing and health care in order to survive. Some municipalities, like Pinellas Parks Angel Fund, helps some low wage earners pay utility bills. Food banks operated by churches and civic groups offer free groceries to the working poor. Some corporate executives actually advise their minimum wage workers on ways to obtain various forms of public assistance, including Medicaid, rather than pay a decent salary. According to a study by the University of California at Berkeley, more than half of Americas minimum wage workers rely on at least one government public assistance program to support their families. Taxpayers are on the hook for $7 billion annually thanks to one major burger chain that offers take it or leave it minimal wages, no benefits, and limited work hours. The fast food industry combined is said to cost taxpayers an estimated $3.8 billion annually in government subsidies for the working poor. The Obama Administration is pushing for a federal minimum wage of $10.10 an hour by 2016. That would help roughly a million Floridians in the hotel, restaurant and service industries who live in a state that has the second-largest number of minimum wage workers, only after Texas. And so it goes for struggling Americans who are living paycheck to paycheck while trying to eke out a living. Meanwhile, the price of gasoline, groceries and insurance continues to escalate while big business reaps in the profits.Thomas Michalski, a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor, can be reached at thomasamski @yahoo.com.

TORRESLARGO The food from Jai McFalls garden, growing abundantly in front of her Largo storefront, doesnt look much like the produce offered in grocery stores. The plants that do look familiar taste different, stronger. But thats a good thing, McFall said. The nutrients she feeds the plants keeps them from getting gobbled up by bugs. The produce tastes better and is better for you because theyve been cared for properly. What we do is we build up soil and then we put minerals in it, because minerals are elements essential for life, and minerals are what gives food their flavor, she said. McFall calls herself an edible landscaper. Her business, Organic Living, has been based at 13064 Indian Rocks Road in Largo since last July. Through it, she teaches people the benefits of organic food and, more importantly, how to grow it in difficult Florida soil. From her own garden, McFall shows off easily recognized vegetables: eggplant, kale, tomatoes, cauliflower, Romaine lettuce and cayenne peppers. She explains why the arugula and oregano tastes so different and offers leaves of herbs: sorrell, Thai basil, tarragon, cilantro, Cuban oregano, fennel, tarragon, longevity spinach, Chinese chives, Okinawan spinach, Italian dandelion, bronze fennel, stevia and dill. Even the hibiscus and snapdragon flowers are edible. And all the plants are growing and thriving, without any pesticides. Everything I sell is specific to Central Florida. It might not work in Miami, and it might not work up in Gainesville, but theyre very specific to Central Florida, McFall said. A new customer, Delalle Alexander of Clearwater Beach, browsed from shelves of seedlings March 14, selecting new plants to grow. Her garden only began to thrive last month; she failed to grow anything last year. But McFall taught her how to grow a garden in Florida. Her new tomatoes are still green, Alexander said. But they look happy, she said, explaining that shes also growing radishes, parsley and eggplant. They all seem like theyre happy plants. I havent eaten any yet, other than the parsley. Happy plants are what McFall is all about. She spends much of her days away from her garden, giving talks to various social groups, at preschools, senior centers, churches and doctors offices. If anybody wants me to come talk about organics, I will do so, and I love it, she said, adding that she doesnt require a fee. Because people need to know, and thats my purpose: to educate people.A broken systemPeople always ask McFall what she does to keep the bugs away. But there arent any bugs in her garden. The reason is simple. Healthy plants dont get bugs, she said. Todays conventional fertilizers give plants three minerals: nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, the same ingredients that can be used to make bombs. We need 90 minerals in the soil to have healthy soil, McFall explained. Without more minerals, the resulting plants are stressed and unhealthy. The first thing Mother Nature does is sends in the bugs: Take out those unhealthy plants! Because were supposed to get our minerals from our food, McFall said. Scientifically, a healthy plant with no stress becomes a complex carbohydrate. A stressed plant one growing in the wrong season with the wrong amount of water or sunlight and without proper nutrients turns into a simple sugar. The bugs gravitate to simple sugars like candy, McFall said. To combat the bugs, pesticides were developed. So now we have weak and unhealthy plants covered with poison, McFall said. So then Mother Nature sends in the molds, the mildews, the funguses, the diseases, the weeds. Take out those unhealthy plants! Plants are supposed to develop their own probiotics and immunities, but pesticides kill those too, allowing unhealthy organisms to grow in their wake. Of course, the pesticides themselves are bad for humans to consume. McFall points customers to the Dirty Dozen, a list of the fruits and vegetables that are proven to contain the most pesticides, -67 toxins on every one of them, McFall said. Avoiding those toxins is the No. 1 reason to eat organic produce. A lot of people tell me, I cant afford to buy all organic. And I tell them, You cant afford not to, because youre going to pay the farmer now or youre going to pay the doctor later. And its going to be less painful and less expensive to pay the farmer now, McFall said. And if you know how, its easiest to grow your own produce. When you grow your own, not only are you keeping the herbicides and pesticides out, but youre making sure that youre putting the minerals in that need to be in the soil to have healthy plants and to have healthy bodies, McFall said. Plant magicMcFall grew up on an organic farm in Michigan. In the 1960s, the family grew or raised all their own food: meats, fruits and vegetables. We canned, and every Saturday we baked whatever breads, pies, cookies, cakes we needed for the week, so we ate really, really good, McFall said. She bought the 10 acres from her parents in 1986 and began her edible landscaping company. When she moved to Tampa in 2005, however, she discovered that her expertise didnt carry over exactly. Her first two gardens were miserable failures, she said. When she moved to a tiny plot in Clearwater, she tried again, this time with lots more success. She grew herbs and vegetables and cultivated more than 40 fruit-bearing plants. When people would come and look at my gardens, they would walk around and go, You cant grow gardens like this in Florida. You must be using magic, McFall said. Accordingly, the four plant food products Organic Living sells are called Magic Nos. 1 through 4, in order of importance. The first provides the soil with 91 minerals, mined from ancient seabeds in Nevada. No. 2 provides the beneficial microorganisms the plants need to thrive. You create a living community with the microorganisms and the worms and the insects and the plants, and you dont get bugs, and you dont get disease, McFall said. You get nutrient-dense, healthy plants. Magic No. 3 was developed out of a specific desire to grow a plethora of tomatoes, as is easy to do in many northern areas. McFall discovered that tomatoes needed a lower pH and even more nutrients. So the third plant food is made out of bat guano, blood meal and worm castings. Magic No. 4 is called biochar, a one-time application made from the Mayan technique of burning wood into charcoal and mixing it with organic compost. McFall keeps an ongoing experiment to compare the difference between a plant grown with her plant food and one without. The plant fed properly always thrives, grows bigger and produces more fruit, she said. Thats why I teach people to grow their own, because they can. Its totally doable, McFall said. There is work involved, there is money involved. Theres an investment to make. At the same time, its an investment in your future. For her own future, McFall is looking to move into the property next to her storefront and from there grow even more gardens. She wants to clear the back of her current property, plant a food forest and run a coop through which people can buy shares and pick up produce every week. She said she thinks her message, her ongoing mission, is having an impact in the community. Organic Livings email list is more than 2,000 strong, and theyre all regular customers, she said. Ive had people tell me that Ive changed their lives (and) their health, she said. They keep coming back. And they bring people with them. She finds her work very rewarding because she can say she is changing lives, one family at a time. Organic Living hosts regular workshops on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m. Most are free. A schedule of upcoming workshops, along with more gardening information, is available at the business website, www.organiclivingforall.com. McFall also is available to give talks on organic gardening. Call 324-4435. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESOrganic Living is at 13064 Indian Rocks Road in Largo.

Janney, Phillip Baker Hall and Rachael Harris Director: Jason Bateman Rated: R Jason Bateman makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words. In the movie, he stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious eighth-graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. Guy zealously plays to win the prize money at stake, outpacing the pre-teen field in match after match. Guy is aided and abetted in qualifying for the matches by reporter Jenny Widgeon, who has the exclusive rights to Guys story and has liaisons with her subject. Guy rudely steps up his game to embarrass and outwit the competitions imperious chief Dr. Bowman (Philip Baker Hall) and administrator Dr. Deagan (Allison Janney), who are intent on having him eliminated from the field. While Jenny attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand), who is completely unfazed by Guys take-no-prisoners approach to life. But the increasingly heated final rounds of the Quill may spell things differently for Guys future.Cesar ChavezGenre: Drama Cast: Michael Pea, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Jacob Vargas, Yancey Arias, Wes Bentley, John Ortoz and John Malkovich Director: Diego Luna Rated: PG-13 In Cesar Chavez, director Diego Luna presents a powerful cinematic portrait of the legendary activist. The film stars Michael Pea in the title role, along with America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson and John Malkovich. Chronicling the birth of a modern American movement, Cesar Chavez tells the story of the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to securing a living wage for farm workers. Passionate but softspoken, Chavez embraced nonviolence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle to bring dignity to people. Chavez inspired millions of Americans from all walks of life who never worked on a farm to fight for social justice. His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individuals ability to change the world.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Breathe InGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan, Mackenzie Davis and Nico Tortorella Director: Drake Doremus Not rated Breathe In pairs writer/director Drake Doremus once again with his incandescent star, Felicity Jones. seems happy enough, but with her arrival to the Reynolds Upstate New York home, the private struggles of each family member begin to bubble. In particular, frustrated musician-turnedpiano-teacher Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce) finds long suppressed dreams and desires reignited by Sophies talent and inquisitive nature. While Keiths wife, Megan (Amy Ryan) and daughter, Lauren (Mackenzie Davis) focus on Laurens final year of high school, Sophie and Keith are drawn ever closer by their mutual longing for creative expression. Ultimately, Sophie and Keith must confront how much they are willing to sacrifice and what they truly want out of life.Hide Your Smiling FacesGenre: Drama Cast: Ryan Jones, Nathan Varnson, Colm OLeary, Thomas Cruz, Christina Starbuck and Chris Kies Director: Daniel Patrick Carbone Not rated After a neighborhood tragedy, two young brothers 9-year-old Tommy (Ryan Jones) and 14year-old Eric (Nathan Varnson) confront changing relationships, the mystery of nature, and their own mortality. A dreamlike portrait of adolescence unfolding over one hot, hazy summer, Hide Your Smiling Faces is a startling debut, exploring rural American life through the distorted lens of youth.The Raid 2Genre: Action Cast: Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Tio Pakusadewo, Oka Antara, Julie Estelle, Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo and Kazuki Kitamura Director: Gareth Evans Rated: R He thought it was over. After fighting his way out of a building filled with gangsters and madmen a fight that left the bodies of police and gangsters alike piled in the halls rookie Jakarta cop Rama thought it was done and he could resume a normal life. He couldnt have been more wrong. Formidable though they may have been, Ramas opponents in that fateful building were nothing more than small fish swimming in a pond much larger than he ever dreamed possible. And his triumph over the small fry has attracted the attention of the predators farther up the food chain. His family at risk, Rama has only one choice to protect his infant son and wife: He must go undercover to enter the criminal underworld himself and climb through the hierarchy of competing forces until it leads him to the corrupt politicians and police pulling the strings at the top of the heap. And so Rama begins a new odyssey of violence, a journey that will force him to set aside his own life and history and take on a new identity as the violent offender Yuda. In prison he must gain the confidence of Uco the son of a prominent gang kingpin to join the gang himself, laying his own life on the line in a desperate all-ornothing gambit to bring the whole rotten enterprise to an end.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Cook, a Canadian Juno Award-winning guitarist, is touring in support of his recent album release, The Blue Guitar Sessions. According to his website, the musician found inspiration for the new recording while listening to Adeles . It was the simplicity of it, Cook says of Adeles work. For me it was amazing that an album, where many of the tracks were just voice and piano, was a pop record. I loved it. It creates a world where we get to really hear her voice and also the pianist can be more expressive. It just becomes a much more intimate album, a much more personal album and I thought I would love to do that. His appreciation of Adeles work emboldened him to tackle a long simmering personal objective and create a blue mood record. He spent the summer of 2011 cottage-hopping with his family and set about writing material for his eighth studio album, The Blue Guitar Sessions.A change in courseAccording to his biography at website of his booking agent, The Feldman Agency, The Blue Guitar Sessions is much different from the rumba flamenco for which he is best known. A leading proponent of the genre since bursting onto the world music scene with 1995s Tempest, Cook has received many accolades, including, in 2008, winning the silver medal in Acoustic Guitar magazines prestigious Players Choice Awards behind the legendary Paco De Lucia. But Toronto resident who was born in Paris to John Cook, a film director, and his wife Heather, a former CBC television producer has steered clear of anything resembling flamenco on this record, producing a sound that allows listeners to appreciate each musicians contribution. To do so he also battled his natural instinct to fill in space. Its a big departure from the work I have done in the past, he says in the biographical sketch. And theres a fear that if you do something drastically different, will there still be someone there to listen to it if you change? Cook feels that the role of an artist is to change, to constantly push forward and try and come up with something new. I dont want to spend the rest of my life repeating my first few records, Cook says. So I decided I was going to do it. The result is a captivating 14track album recorded on a pair of vintage microphones microphones for which Cook exhaustively searched so he could authentically replicate the mood of recordings from the Miles Davis era. Sound is of the utmost importance to him as a musician, producer and engineer. The Blue Guitar Sessions is best enjoyed through a room-filling home stereo system like the old days. The track Broken Moon features Cooks extraordinary guitar accompanied by cellist Amy Laing. Tom Szczniak adds accordion to Witching Hour, a melodic composition hinting at Cooks Parisian roots. Toronto vocalist Emma-Lee makes an appearance on I Put a Spell on You, a cover of the song written by Screamin Jay Hawkins and popularized by Nina Simone and Jeff Beck. Longtime collaborator violinist Chris Church makes several appearances in just the right spots. Tampa Bay area audiences will soon discover how well The Blue Guitar Sessions translates to live performances. The Capitol Theatre performance will include songs from more familiar work as well as material from the new album. Cooks previous albums include Tempest (1995), Gravity (1996), Vertigo (1998), Free Fall (2000), Nomad (2003), Frontiers (2008) and The Rumba Foundation (2009). Five of these were nominated for Juno Awards and one, Free Fall, won a Juno Award for Best Instrumental Album. Joining Cook on stage are the musicians that have become as familiar to fans as Cook himself: Chris Church, Rosendo Chendy Leon, Nicholas Hernandez and Dennis Mohammed. What I found is that the longer the five of us played together, we really gelled and had a sense of what our domains were, Cook said in a press release from his publicist. Each member grew within their domain to make it something really big. We all learned to fill our space.

According to the event website, Team Sandtastic creates some of the finest quality sand sculptures worldwide. Sculptors and associates from the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom have created some singularly unique sculptures throughout the years for engagement proposals, weddings, and special events. Malls, conventions, fairs, festivals, and theme parks have been their staple clients. The team uses only sand and water with no cement or fixatives added. Tools utilized in the carving process include margin trowels, spreaders, cake decorator spatulas, and dental instruments for, intricate detailed areas. Mark Mason returns to the festival this year, bringing more than three decades of experience with him. Mason started sculpting sand 31 years ago, competing in the Sand-Blast, a sand sculpture contest in Fort Lauderdale. Sand sculpture became his primary occupation 22 years ago. Since then, he has led his artistic team to competitions in Australia, Canada, Mexico, Europe, South America, the United States and throughout the Caribbean. Clearwater resident Patrick Harsch joins this years sand sculptors. Harsch has been involved in sculpting sand for more than 17 years. He got his start with Team Sandtastic, working on an installation for Disney. More recently, Harsch has been exhibiting creations at the Florida State Fair. Another Pinellas resident, Dean Arscott, is new to the festival this year. Arscott was born and raised in central Maryland. He graduated from Ringling College of Art & Design in 2008, and now resides in Gulfport. He works on a wide variety of illustration and design projects in addition to carving with Team Sandtastic.
