Page 13A State of the cityCPA says Seminole in good financial shape; mayor discusses fiscal 2013 year thus far By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Mayor Leslie Waters gave her State of the City address at the April 8 City Council meeting, following the 2013 comprehensive annual financial report from the citys accounting firm, Wells, Houser & Schatzel, P.A. And the city is in good financial shape, said Peter Schatzel from WHS. I am pleased to say that based upon the results of fiscal year 2013 and based upon the citys previous financial condition, that the annual financial report does reflect that you are in fact in very sound financial condition at the end of fiscal year 2013, he said. The citys general fund balance has enough to cover five months of city expenses in an emergency, he said, which is a safe reserve. I have found over the years that a lot of cities try to have at least three months, Schatzel added. I think three months is viewed as the minimum to have on hand. An average of three to six months is a good reserve to have on hand. This is an increase over previous years, he said. In 2012, this reserve would have covered 4.4 months of expenses, and 4.5 months the three years prior to that. Schatzel also discussed the citys firefighters pension fund. The fund had a $2.1 million increase in equity in fiscal year 2013, compared to $4.8 million the year before. Part of this discrepancy can be explained by the number of lump-sum payouts, which totaled around $793,000, made to firefighters who left Seminole Fire Rescue. The city also spent $1.7 million on capital assets for the fire rescue company, including nearly $1 million on improvements made to Fire Station 30. He also noted that in fiscal year 2013 the city paid off the last of the debt incurred to build the recreation center in 1999. Now, he said, the city has just one bond left, about $3.6 million, on two public works buildings built in Features Business . . . . . . . . . .14A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . . . .8A County . . . . . . . . . . .6-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . .10-11A Health . . . . . . . . . . .15A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .12A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .17A Real Estate . . . . . . . . . .9A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .16A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-5A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Get a taste of the summer movie lineups anticipated hits. ...

Always a bit of a nomad, in her mind shed wander the country while creating her art. Each day shed wake up in a new city; each day shed sell her work on the side of the road to make ends meet. These days, the project has become a reality. But the NOMAD Studio that stands for Neighborhood-Oriented Mobile Art & Design Studio has taken on a much larger scope and focuses more on the communitys needs than her own. Now, Bouchers goal is to take her mobile art studio concept into community events throughout not just the Tampa Bay region, but the entire state, and to provide art projects and lessons for everyone, no matter the age or skill level, along the way. This is not my project is the way I look at it, she said. There was a point early on where I thought it was my project. But it became apparent to me as I started talking to people about it that its a lot bigger than me. Boucher, a 1992 Seminole High School graduate, attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and spent a decade in the Windy City. She worked as a metalsmith, and also designed windows and did product photography for a small downtown boutique. Then about three years ago she was ready to make more of an impact on a community, and realized coming home to Pinellas County was the best way to do that. When youre in Chicago or a big city you can make an impact, but its hard to do, she said. So I felt like I wanted to return to my roots and see what was going on here and hopefully bring back some of what Ive learned in the arts. But she wasnt initially sure where this impact would be made. Eventually after returning home, she found herself teaching art to elementary school students at Plato Academy, a charter school in Seminole. This became the inspiration for NOMAD. While she was afforded some flexibility with lesson plans and projects for students, she found there was never enough time for the arts. Students would often be pulled from her class for myriad NOMAD studio art bus rolls onPhoto by TIFFANY RAZZANOCarrie Boucher, founder of the nonprofit NOMAD Studio, a mobile art project, inside her art bus.Photo courtesy of CARRIE BOUCHERChildren draw on the NOMAD Studio art bus, which founder Carrie Boucher hopes to use to bring art to community events throughout the region. See NOMAD STUDIO, page 4AThe energy company provided more than $500,000 for a large solar array at the Seminole campus and a second array on the Clearwater campus and provided for related educational outreach efforts. Monitors on each campus show daily production of energy from the arrays, and engineering and environmental technology students use the information for research. The arrays are projected to save the college as much as $20,000 a year in energy costs. Since its installation earlier this year, for example, the Seminole array has produced more than almost 18,000kWh of energy, enough to fully charge 737 electric cars or almost 3.3 million smartphones. Questions answered at SPC eTownHall meeting By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE Pinellas County citizens tweeted, blogged, phoned and asked questions in person during the FY 2015 Budget eTownHall meeting April 9 in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College. Communications officials report that about 250 people logged on to the blog and another 50 attended the hour-long live event. More than 65,000 received phone calls and an untold number watched the event streamed live on the countys website, pinellascounty.org, and on PCCTV. Mark Wilson, news anchor at Fox 13, moderated. County Administrator Bob LaSala answered questions from the public, as did all the commissioners, except Charlie Justice, who was sick. Wilson began the evening talking about results from a recent citizens survey that showed traffic and transit among top concerns. Several eTownHall participants asked transit-related questions. One wanted to know if transit was already part of the Pinellas for Pinellas program. Welch explained that Penny for Pinellas was a separate voter-approved tax that pays for capital improvement projects. Currently, PSTA receives its funding from ad valorem (property taxes). A referendum in November will allow voters to decide to change the method of funding to a 1 percent sales tax devoted entirely to transit needs. This is a vitally important initiative in our county, something weve talked about since the 1970s, said Commissioner Janet Long. Long said without transit improvements, the economy would become stagnant. Its 2014. All major metro areas have a way for people to get from the airport to the beach with a transportation option, she said. We dont have it. Commissioner Chair Karen Seel explained that no money is currently available to fund a light See BUDGET, page 4ASCHOOLSSPC hosts medical marijuana programThe controversial issue of legalizing medical marijuana will be debated at the next Village Square program of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, April 17, 2014 AROUND, from page 3A2005. This should be paid off by 2019 with Penny for Pinellas funds. During her State of the City address, Mayor Waters gave an overview of what the city has accomplished so far in fiscal year 2013, which began in October. Mayor Waters said the citys revenue is expected to decrease 3.7 percent compared to last year, making fiscal year 2013 the sixth straight budget year of declining revenues and subsequent reduced expenditures. Were hoping that 2015 brings stabilization to the budget, she said. She stressed, though, that unlike other cities facing similar financial strains following the 2008 recession, Seminole hasnt had to reduce services offered or increase millage rates. In fact, she said, the city has one of the lowest property tax rates in Pinellas County. She also said she set and met four major, personal goals for her first year in office: being accessible to local businesses, starting a citywide food drive, hosting regular Meet the Mayor forums, and teaching civic classes to children. The city recently kicked off its first Citizens Academy, one of the councils seven-year goals, which will be held every year moving forward. And one of the highlights of the year so far has been the hiring of new Fire Chief Heather Burford, Mayor Waters said. Construction will begin soon on the renovation of the former city hall in City Park. The multi-use facility will include rental space for the general public and the Historical Societys planned museum. Waterfront Park, which will be located on Long Bayou on Park Boulevard, next to Home Depot, also will become a reality this year, Mayor Waters said. The city has received around $200,000 in grants to redevelop the property into a city park with canoe and kayak access. The redevelopment of 60 acres along Bay Pines is underway. This mixed-use development will include residential and commercial uses, and Mayor Waters said shes hopeful the new owners of the Seminole Mall will announce their plans for that property this year. The future of Seminole looks bright, she said. reasons special events, FCAT training, sports. I felt like the amount of time we had to teach art was really short, Boucher said. Whenever they were told it was time to clean up, they were like, Aw, I dont want to clean up yet. It was the only time they didnt listen to me. They always wanted more art time. Frustrated, she came up with the concept for NOMAD. I love art, she said, and nobody should be pulled out of art and everybody should have access to art. Initially, she thought shed simply offer private lessons on an art studio bus. But by doing strictly paid lessons on a bus, youre eliminating a huge demographic of people who couldnt afford lessons, she said. So she decided to create NOMAD as a nonprofit organization, one that would be subsidized by donations and merchandise sales. Then she could take the bus anywhere she was needed in the community. The Perry family, which owns a series of Pit Stop Auto Repair shops in and around Venice, heard of Bouchers plan and contacted her. They had a bus on site to donate to her cause and would also provide free labor to get the vehicle up and running. For months Boucher and her volunteers would travel to Venice to work on the bus interior, getting it ready for public use with a long drawing table and seating. Even though its far from ready, she said, the bus debuted at the Gasparilla Arts Festival at Tampas Curtis Hixon Park last month. I couldnt have asked for a better place to debut at, though, Boucher said. She let those stopping by the bus contribute to its mural, since it was basically a giant whiteboard at that point and hadnt been painted yet. Children took crayons and drew all over the bus. On the bus, she offered guided art projects but also allowed kids to run with their inspiration. NOMAD saw hundreds of kids creating art on the bus that weekend, she said. It was incredible. Her work on the bus isnt done, though. Because it sat for several years, much of the original floor was rotting, so currently the floor is temporarily a covered 3/4 piece of plywood. The generator isnt working, so thats going to take some troubleshooting, she said. And once it is running, she needs to have an electrician give her the OK that the bus electrical system is safe to use. Then shell tackle the air conditioning system, which is important as summer months approach. Shed also like to install a sink for clean-up and get the wheelchair lift working again. That way it can be truly accessible to everyone, she said. Before getting this first bus, Boucher envisioned a whole fleet of busses, flooding the area with art. But she didnt realize how much work renovating one bus for the project would take. I still love that idea, she said. But for right now I want to get this bus done. Even while work on the bus is being completed, it can be found every Thursday evening at the Edge Farmers Market in St. Pete. And Boucher is building up her team of volunteers and is also seeking donations for the bus. People can either purchase a NOMAD Studio Tshirt for $20 or donate directly to the project on PayPal.com by sending it to donate@no madartbus.org. For more information about the project, visit www.facebook.com/NOMADartbus.The way art, and even music and things like that, are being defunded in public schools, we need to decide for ourselves if the arts are important to us, Boucher said. And if they are, then its our responsibility as a community to come together and teach art in an effective way. Ill do as much as I can to make it happen. But I cant do it on my own. NOMAD STUDIO, from page 1A STATE OF THE CITY, from page 1Arail system, but if the Greenlight Pinellas tax initiative were approved, it would be something coming in the future. Greenlight Pinellas is a transportation plan to move transit forward in Pinellas, said Commissioner Ken Welch. The first part of the plan improves bus services more flex routes and trolley services, evening services and more. The second part is light rail, which will come after. He answered a question as to why the rail couldnt be done by a private company by saying that a publicprivate partnership could be possible. Commissioner Susan Latvala told a caller that no county government money is spent to fund Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. She said PSTA had a separate budget and revenue stream. County tax money is not spent on PSTA and PSTA money is not spent on county government services. She pointed out that four commissioners sat of the PSTA board and helped oversee how the authoritys money was spent. Seel said the county was working on an interlocal agreement with PSTA that would ensure sales tax revenue would be spent as outlined in the Greenlight plan, should voters approve the 1 percent tax. The sales tax money collected would be passed through the county to PSTA.Budget questionsLaSala answered questions about the FY 2015 budget. He said although the budget was balanced, it would take great care to keep it that way. He explained that costs are continuing to rise faster than revenues. Were looking for ways to be more efficient, he said. One example is construction of a new chiller plant that should be finished in 2015. LaSala said it would help save on air conditioning costs. He recently presented an update to the 10-year budget forecast that showed challenges ahead for the future. Strategic planning is one of the things Im most proud of, said Commissioner Norm Roche, adding that it allowed more flexibility to adjust the budget year to year. He also commented on the survey. The survey is important, he said. It lets us know how were doing. Ninety percent say were meeting or exceeding service levels. Commissioner John Morroni agreed that the survey was important, but said the best feedback came from being out in the community. He pointed out that the survey involved only 800 people, while he attended a recent FAST (Faith and Action in Strength Together) with about 3,000 people in attendance. People are not afraid to tell you what they think, he said. A blogger asked if eliminating the Save Our Homes property tax exemption would give the county enough money to pay for services. Long explained that Save Our Homes was a state law, put into place after voters approved a constitutional amendment. She said voters would have to approve another amendment rescinding Save Our Homes, which she said was unlikely. Another participant asked about the importance of the property appraiser on the budget process. The property appraiser develops objective evaluative data based on tax values, LaSala said. The values are used to develop budget strategies. He said early estimates showed a 3 percent growth in property tax values and could come in higher, as much as 4 or 5 percent. Property values are an important part of our revenue base, he said. A blogger asked if the $5 fee to park in county parks with beach access was working to provide more money. Yes, said Latvala. It has kept us from having to BUDGET, from page 1A Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioners Janet Long, left, and Susan Latvala listen as Commissioner John Morroni makes comments during the FY 2015 Budget eTownHall meeting April 9 in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College.The guest speaker will be Elizabeth Fanslow, author of Be Amazing.

Roche said some people liked that less mowing was being done in the parks, allowing areas to become naturalized again. Another caller asked about funding for Emergency Medical Services and wanted to know if the commission was considering consolidation. Welch explained that due to the state charter governing EMS, the commission did not have the authority to consolidate. Consolidation, in my opinion, needs to happen, he said. We dont need 19 different districts. Meanwhile, county staff is working of saving money through enhancements to the 911 system and other measures, he said. Its important for consumers to recognize that we have the very best fire and EMS in the U.S., Long said. But it is also the most expensive. We need to find other ways to do it. But we have to be sensitive to the publics safety and wellbeing. She said change was difficult due to the political differences of those involved. So many people are resisting change, she said, adding that she had been married to a firefighter, retired now, for 37 years, so she understood the issue. Ive been a strong proponent of consolidation for years, Roche said, adding any change in the EMS system should be done with great care. He said there had been a lot of talk about regional consolidation and collaboration in recent years. We need to make sensible consolidation within our own borders. Welch answered the question about possible decrease in EMS millage, saying it could not go down as long as the cost to provide service continued to increase. On the question about abandoned houses in disrepair around the county, LaSala said the commission had approved adding three positions for code enforcement for this year. But, were mostly complaint driven, he said. And it takes time to make changes, as after notice is served about a problem, people have to be given a chance to resolve the issue. Morroni said the county was inadequate in its code enforcement and talked about an increase in the number of complaints.AccomplishmentsA caller asked the panel about the countys accomplishments. Seel talked about the countys growth and jobs. We had the best year ever in tourism bringing in over $31 million in bed tax revenue, she said. Were among the top counties in the state for tourism. She said the county was bringing in more high paying jobs and had retained more than 1,000 jobs last year. Morroni added that tourists had spent $5.5 billion in Pinellas last year. More than 1 million passengers used the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. Were doing gangbusters right now, he said. Long said with more carriers and Allegiant Air are adding routes, even more people would be coming to the county for business and to visit. They are paying a large percentage of Penny for Pinellas that we dont have to pay, she said.Business growthRoche answered a question about the importance of business growth. Thats one of the main challenges right now, he said. He said the average household income in the county was between $40,000 and $45,000, which causes concerns about the financial stress level on the population. He said most couldnt afford more taxes or fees. But Pinellas is a built-out county, meaning there isnt room to bring in large companies. He said officials needed to revision its business community for the future. Weve got to think different within the space we have, he said. Long said improved transportation options would help create new jobs and business growth along future rail corridors. Seel also fielded a question about construction on U.S. 19 and the hardship it was causing for businesses. She said that thanks to federal money and support from the Florida Department of Transportation, U.S. 19 projects had been fast tracked, meaning they can be completed 25 years ahead of schedule. She said extra money was made available to offer contractors incentives to finish the work sooner. She added that the Gulf-to-Bay span should be opening soon, which will give people an idea of what things will be like when ongoing construction is completed.Other questionsAnother caller asked about volunteer opportunities within county government. LaSala said volunteers were very important, providing 150,000 hours of service, equivalent to $5 million in service in a variety of capacities. They are doing work we wouldnt be able to do otherwise, he said. Seel answered the question about the future of the Waste to Energy plant. She said the contract with Duke Energy continues until 2024. Duke must buy the electricity we produce by burning trash, she said. She said the plant burned 1.5 tons of trash last year. Morroni added that Pinellas had recycled 1 million tons. Seel said due to the Waste to Energy plant, the county had not raised its tipping fee at the dump since 1985. LaSala added that tipping fees provide revenue for a renewal fund that paid for repairs, replacement and maintenance at the plant. Several questions came in about schools. Latvala explained that county government had nothing to do with schools. They elect their own board and have their own taxes, she said. Long, who sits on the Homeless Leadership Council, answered the question about what is being done about homelessness in Pinellas. She said many agencies were working together to assist, especially the fastest growing population of homeless families with children. Were trying to find a solution to get people into a program that can help them rise out of poverty so they can care for themselves, she said. She said some homelessness is tied to mental health issues as well as alcohol and drug abuse. She said many veterans were homeless, which is being addressed by the Veterans Administration and VA hospitals. Theyre doing their best to provide for them, she said. The final question asked if the county would be willing to pay if the Tampa Bay Rays said they wanted a new stadium in the Gateway area. Roche said the days of the taxpayer building stadiums was over. He said he didnt see Pinellas County citizens with an average household income of $43,000 paying for a new stadium. Latvala pointed out that the stadium would be paid for with bed tax money, which is mostly paid by tourists. If the opportunity comes up, there will be a public discussion and we will make the best decision, she said. BUDGET, from page 4A

David Jolly takes on beach nourishmentWASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman David W. Jolly called on members of the U.S. House April 9 to support the Senate version of the recentlypassed Water Resources Reform and Development Act that would extend the federal authorization of the 50-year ongoing renourishment project in Treasure Island. Like many of the infrastructure projects Congress takes on, our nation has made a longterm investment in the safety and prosperity of our Pinellas community through this project, and similar projects up and down the coastline, Jolly said in a press release. Stable beaches protect public and private infrastructure along our coastline, and the communities that call them home. Beach renourishment provides a flood buffer, which is vital for protecting both lives and property during severe storms and hurricanes. Beach nourishment funding in Pinellas County also provides for the districts economy by ensuring Pinellas beaches remain a sought-after destination for visitors from around the world, Jolly said. Tourism is one of Floridas most important economic drivers, with an estimated 38.4 million out-of-state visitors heading to Florida beaches each year. For a county that is surrounded by water, and a state with more beach visitors than all of the U.S. National Parks combined, allowing Florida coastlines to deteriorate would translate into jobs and revenue lost, as well as economic uncertainty. The Senate version of the Water Resources Reform and Development allowed for reauthorization of beach renourishment projects and it is my hope that the House will support the Senates effort in this regard as they work toward an agreement in the Conference Committee, Jolly continued. A major driver of the Florida economy is tourism. In Pinellas County alone, tourism officials estimate that visitors bring a $7.3 billion economic impact annually our community simply cannot afford to have our beaches deteriorate from coastal erosion. The benefits of well-protected coastlines extend far beyond Pinellas County and the state of Florida. When it comes to the National Flood Insurance Program for example, which benefits the entire nation, Florida remains a major donor, in part due to the security provided by the ongoing beach construction program. Just as Congress supports national infrastructure projects in other regions, like maintaining ports and waterways and flood control along rivers and streams, we need Congress to make sure that our countrys 50-year investment in our Pinellas coastal community remains protected, Jolly said. Court employees recognized earn productivity awardCLEARWATER The eight members of the Fiscal Team of the Administrative Office of the Courts for the Sixth Judicial Circuit were named as a team winner of a 2014 Prudential Financial-Davis Productivity Award, which recognizes state employees whose innovations significantly improve the delivery of state services and saves money for Floridas taxpayers. The annual statewide competition attracted 568 nominations for improvements worth an estimated $558 million in cost savings, cost avoidances and increased revenue for the state of Florida. The local employees were one of just four court groups to be acknowledged around the state. They will be recognized at a regional awards ceremony June 13 in Tampa. The team that earned the citation includes Budget Services Manager Rob Snyder, and fiscal assistants Tanja Fitzgerald, Mary Kris Lichtenberg, Inass Riyad and Justin Thom, all of whom work in Pinellas County courthouses; and Administrative Services Manager Stephanie LoBalbo, and fiscal assistants Chris Hover and Susan Vega, who work in courthouses in New Port Richey and Dade City. They were cited for the implementation of four programs, including two for which the savings are measureable. The four projects are: Development of a co-op system of supply ordering where an employee must first ask other employees via email whether they have a needed supply item before ordering anything new. In five years, the Circuits office supply budget dropped from $114,954 to $100,729, or 12 percent even while the individual items went through the normal price creep upward. Implementation of stringent cost recovery standards, such as requiring pre-payment of due process services in most cases, and by pursuing cost recovery when pre-payment cannot be made. In the past five years, almost $1.2 million has been recovered for due process services. Transferal of some contractual vendor rates from hourly with travel to a flat rate that includes travel time, and limiting the frequency with which supplies may be ordered to once per month, reduced the number of invoices that have to be processed, audited, and signed. In four years, total invoice count dropped almost 35 percent, from 5,729 to 3,781. In an effort to reduce offsite storage, printing costs and paper consumption, the Sixth Judicial Circuits fiscal and technology offices joined forces to initiate two projects: 1) the replacement of individual desktop printers with shared network printers and copiers, saving hardware and print cartridge costs; 2) a shift to electronic storage of documents, resulting in less paper being stored off site, thus cutting monthly storage fees and the need for onsite file cabinets.

Comfort Keepers takes pride in our team consisting of a cohesive staff and one hundred plus caregivers working together towards the same goal of providing our community of seniors with the utmost care, enabling them to stay safe and happy in the comfort of their own homes. At Comfort Keepers our goal is to create a team of caregivers who have the heart, patience, dedication, loyalty and love for nurturing others. This sounds like a perfect mix of attributes and ones that do exist in so many people. Caregiving can be one of the most difficult yet rewarding careers. To some it comes naturally, especially if you are a nurturer by nature. For others it may be a calling they are somewhat unsure of but feel they wish to pursue. A key and valued portion of the interviewing process at Comfort Keepers is to learn the desire of the potential candidate to join the Comfort Keepers Team as a caregiver. We are a team centered on making a difference in each clients home in order to provide the very best of care and understanding of the individual needs. We create a Plan of Care specific to each person and do our utmost to match a caregiver with each client. Making a good match is highly important in building trust between caregiver and client. We do our best to match caregivers to clients in regards to personalities, while paying close attention to skills needed. Our caregivers participate in spring and fall in-services with many topics to choose from. We have several guest speakers who graciously give of their time to assist us in our training meetings. These training topics include caring for alzheimers dementia clients, hospice awareness, falls risk prevention and transferring, senior nutrition and elder abuse. Our mission is to provide our caregivers with the knowledge most pertinent to caring for our seniors which in turn builds their confidence to offer the best possible care to our clients. Experience is not the #1 ingredient to being a good caregiver. It takes personality, empathy, reliability and most of all willingness to serve on both good and bad days. Caregivers often visit with me and share stories regarding their time spent with clients. It is quite touching to see in their eyes and hear in their voice that they are truly fulfilled in playing such an important role in the lives of others. We provide in-home care to Pinellas County offering daytime, evenings, overnights and live-in services. Please apply online to largo@com fortkeepers.com if you are interested in joining our team.

Speaking at an April 8 work session, LaSala said the telephone survey was very, very accurate and provided a very precise bit of feedback from our citizens. Sarah Lindemuth of HCP, a national research, strategy and marketing firm headquartered in Tampa, agreed, saying the 2014 results showed the highest percent of favorable responses on quality of life questions since the county implemented the use of an annual survey in 2011. The random digit dial telephonic survey, conducted Feb. 1-17, involved 800 residents 200 from north county, 200 from mid county, 200 from south county and 200 residents who live on the beaches. The goal: to measure citizen expectations and perceptions regarding key drivers for citizen qualify of life, to determine strengths and opportunities for improvements, according to Lindemuths PowerPoint presentation. She said the survey included calls to the countys large base of longterm residents as well as newer residents, who tend to be younger, have children and higher levels of income. She said the strongest ambassadors for the county are age 65 and older, those new within the past 10 years, those with higher education and incomes above $50,000. The number who said they would recommend Pinellas as a place to retire, live, raise children and/or work increased some significantly as compared to 2012 and 2013 survey answers. Nine out of 10 said they would recommend the county as a place to live and retire, and almost nine in 10 would recommend Pinellas as a place to work and raise children. Perceptions of current quality of life, compared to five years ago, significantly improved versus 2013, continuing an upward trend, she said. More respondents indicated optimism for future quality of life. She also reported that citizens trust and confidence in county government significantly exceeds trust and confidence levels reported in a National Gallup Poll. Few of those surveyed said they had plans to move from Pinellas within the next year. Most who participated in the survey said the county is better aligning with expectation on a majority of community characteristics. Results were not as favorable as to meeting expectations for transportation and economic factors, she said. The biggest gap was for traffic flow. Pinellas has a strong base of tenured residents nearly four in five, or 79.9 percent, have lived in the county for more than 10 years. The survey showed an 11 percent increase in new residents, those who have lived in Pinellas for four years or less. Lindemuth pointed out a few statistical differences between responses from residents of unincorporated areas versus those who live in incorporated (municipalities) area in terms of whether expectations are being met. The biggest differences were reported in water drainage management and having a point of contact for concerns. In unincorporated areas, 82.5 percent said the county was meeting expectations for water drainage management as compared to 76.2 percent in incorporated areas. As to a point of contact for concerns, 78.7 percent of those surveyed in unincorporated areas said expectations were being met for having a point of contact for concerns, 3.8 percent said expectations were exceeded and 14.8 said expectations were not being met. In municipal areas, 67.4 percent said the availability of a point of contact met expectations, 9.9 percent said it exceeded expectations and 6.5 percent said expectations were not being met. Responses exude more optimism than in prior studies for quality of life, Lindemuth said, when talking about the trends shown by the survey. Citizens continue to challenge the county on the topics of economy, transportation and the natural environment. Other trends of note reveal job-related challenges, she said. Reaction to select transportation topics suggests congestion remains a detractor to overall resident experience, she added LaSala said he was pleased with the results. Im proud of what this tells us, he said. But it doesnt mean there is not room for improvement.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERSarah Lindemuth of HCP talks about results of a recent citizens survey during the April 8 Pinellas County Commission work session.

He also built a cooking fire pit, provided a safety fence, and enclosed a water source. The project took over 160 hours of work by Nagel and his fellow Scouts. He also regularly volunteers at Heritage Village, giving tours and providing information during festivals and other events. Nagel started in scouting as a Tiger with Cub Scout Pack 431 and eventually earned the Arrow of Light.

Three recent events at sea whisper of its coming. But it is late. The dolphin spring is marked by a return of dolphins to the Intracoastal Waterway estuary from their winter quarters. Their winter quarters are presumably the Gulf of Mexico. But no one really knows where our local dolphins go during the cold months, which, when you think about it, is strange. The first maritime sign that the dolphin spring is almost unsprung is the flirting of the water temperature. Why is the water temperature in our local backwaters in the 60s for most of the cold months and in the 80s for most of the warm months, but is so briefly at the transition temperatures of the 70s in between? Water temperatures have been flirting with the telltale 70-degree mark in the last couple of weeks, coyly approaching it and then retreating from it bashfully. I should ask my database if dolphins begin returning in earnest once the water temperatures hit the 70s or it only seems that way. A second sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the small squad of teens we encountered the other day. Their message was double-speak. We found them as a quartet of three males (VC, Oyster and PC) and one female (Babyface) that swelled into a quintet as they headed west and joined teen female AM. They were uncharacteristically quiet for teens. The part of their doublespeak that said the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was PC. PC has been a sign of spring at sea for the last two years. PC is 9 years old now. Capt. John Heidemann and I watched him grow up. In fact, we were allowed to babysit him. His mom P dropped him off at the boat, went off to hunt hundreds of yards away, returned, picked him up and off they went! Obligingly, while she was gone, PC gave us precious footage of his game of Toss the Horsetail. Photo by ANN WEAVERTwig with a twig. Sticks little calf Twig mouths a horsetail toy as it waits for mom to return from a hunting trip. Its toy is visible in its mouth if you look closely.PC left home and became independent of P at the unheard-of age of 16 months. Thus, we are doubly pleased to see him. It means he continues to prosper amid the many dangers of the sea. In the bottlenose bull way, he threads through those dangers to find what he likes. When he finds it, he stays where it is. When he does not, he continues his search of the seas. We did not see PC in 2010 or 2011, and only glimpsed him briefly in the spring 2012 when he swung through to check out our local waters. He returned four months later after Thanksgiving. He must have found something he liked because he stayed through July 4, 2013. He left again save for one appearance. Thus, we have not seen this strapping young bull for six months. But he not only returned. He returned to the company of VC and Oyster. They must be friends, for they are ones he has appeared with in the past. The other part of the teen double-speak was that teens are still here. As the adults return in the spring, teens vanish or become more circumspect. In particular, teen bulls contra-indicate the more mature (more beat-up) bulls. Once we see those pairs of big bruisers in the backwaters (Ouch and Fishlips, Grin and Twin Dip, Ekard and Spry, Midface and Lax, Brick and Nose, N and Riptab, among others), we are unlikely to seeing teen bulls like Oyster or VC until the fall. In keeping with his early maturity, PC is not intimidated by these bruisers as other teen bulls are. A third sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the milling mess of moms and kids Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver that we found the week before. The milling mess was fun and frustrating to watch. There were at least a dozen dolphins. They were a nursery group that included six calves. With all those kids, there was lots of action! The three wiggliest were born last year in 2013. This spring, they are entering the stimulating phase of dolphin development called Babys First Spring; more on these bracing activities later in the season! The little wigglies included our second youngest calf from 2013, Qs mysterious calf Qody. Qody is pronounced Cody but alphabetizes with mom Q in the database. I hope Q stays in Johns Pass so I can watch her raise Qody the way I watched her raise Qball. (No new word on Qballs injuries, reported last week in Dolphin Watch.) The three wiggly dolphins were poked and prodded and rolled by three older calves until the seas bubbled. But they did not stay. They had proverbially poked their heads into Johns Pass as if to see if they found whatever it is the dolphins come here to find. They did not find it, for they then returned to the mysterious locale from which they had come. This gives me another idea to check in the database. How often have dolphins appeared in early spring, not found what they were looking for and vanished until some later date? Is the pool still too cold? Oh yeah, one final clue that spring is almost un-sprung. Local bull Scrapefin ran into local bull DD2 the other day and vanished in short order. DD2 will not tolerate Scrapefin in his vicinity. Scrapefin knows it. Ahh, things seem to be nice and normal!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, April 17, 2014Ive been reading about the recent troubles college fraternities have gotten into because of two things: alcohol and hazing. Just when were convinced that all the customs of the world have changed, and that the old days and old ways are gone forever, we hear about dear old Alpha Gamma Ray or some other fraternity getting sued or thrown off campus because of killing one of its pledges by forcing him to drink a gallon of vodka within half an hour. As in days of yore, everyone throws up their hands and exclaims, How awful! How could this happen in our enlightened society? So lets think about that. For openers, start with the booze. Historians tell us that alcohol was invented about three seconds after the Big Bang occurred 13.8 billion years ago. (Im exaggerating, of course, but I often do this to make a point.) My point is that alcohol has been around ever since humans discovered (by accident or intent) how to make it. Since that time, alcohol has been part of life. One theory says man was a hunter/gatherer until he began growing crops that could be fermented or distilled. He soon learned that by tossing in some sugar and other ingredients and stirring the mix for a few weeks, he could produce a marvelous beverage. When swallowed, it gave him a whole new outlook on life. He shouted, No more hunting deer and groundhogs for me Im gonna be a farmer! Humans male and female, young and old have been enjoying and/or dying from alcohol ever since. Despite hundreds of years of medical research, no one has found exactly why most people drink in moderation (or not at all) while others become an alcoholic gradually or from their first sip. Alcoholism treatment has emerged from the dark ages, but the success rates of the various methods are open to question. Thats because alcoholism research is often a foggy field filled with unreliable subjects (active drunks) and the inability of the various experts to agree on just what alcoholism is. Its a mistake to think that alcohol and fraternities are automatically linked. Theyre not. Throughout our country we find fraternities (and their colleges) that have few regulations on alcohol use, while others have successfully clamped down on student drinking. But in America banning booze is a tricky endeavor (witness our nations 13-year disaster with the Prohibition Amendment). It has the same predictable success rate as banning sex or Big Macs. My own college prohibited alcohol for one year in the 1950s; the result was a farce. All in all, its unrealistic to expect college students (whether or not theyre members of a fraternity) or any other segment of the population to refrain from drinking. Even so, society is justified in trying to ban drunken driving, the serving of alcohol to minors and other abuses. Hazing is another ancient tradition that grabs headlines from time to time, at least when it results in injury or death to its victims, who are usually initiates or recruits. The experts arent sure where hazing started, but variations of it are found in organizations around the globe. To fully examine hazing is to risk losing ones belief in human decency. What in our souls can justify imposing rituals ranging from humiliation to sheer torture on our brothers and sisters to punish their unwitting crime of being outsiders who merely wish to come inside? I underwent mild (and non-alcoholic) hazing twice in my checkered history. The first occasion was when, as crew members on our ship reaching the equator en route to Korea in 1951, my fellow polliwogs (who had not previously crossed the equator) and I were subjected to disgusting but good-natured abuse by the shellbacks (sailors who had earlier experienced the tradition.) Other hazing came when I chose a fraternity. One night my pledge class was seated at tables on which the actives (upper-classmen) had placed small dishes of canned fruit topped with whipped cream, which was actually shaving cream. The actives took joy at watching the pledges gag as they swallowed the first mouthful. Otis, a senior bullyboy with whom I shared a mutual loathing, stood waiting for me to retch. But I fooled him. I calmly swallowed most of the fruit and shaving cream, to the amazement of the actives and the rage of my enemy Otis. It was one of the most satisfying incidents of my life. To my mind the truth about extreme hazing, wherever it occurs, is this: it is bullying, pure and simple. Beneath its surface almost always lurks sadism. But Im neither an expert nor a sadist. So forgive me if Im wrong.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.C. Fred Jones was always good for a great quote. I remember talking to the former Auburndale state legislator in the 1980s about the possibility of the Legislatures session having to be extended for a month. The shorter, the better, he said, because anytime the Legislature meets, your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are in danger. Still holds true. And when the Legislature meets, common sense goes on sabbatical. For instance, why are some of our state leaders hell bent on making voting more difficult and killing people easier? A bill sponsored by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, would allow people to conceal firearms without a permit during emergencies, including riots. Who came up with this idea? Yosemite Sam? We also checked in on Gov. Rick Scott to see what hes been up to lately. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? Scott said. Yes, sir. Many times. You have to be careful while youre walking in Tallahassee; its easy to trip on the puppet strings extending from special interests to lawmakers. Wouldnt be surprised if Senate President Don Gaetz will soon do a commercial for Budweiser based on his conversation recently with the Associated Press. The craft beer industry is trying to get the Legislature to approve the use of half-gallon growlers, but Gaetz told AP that he supports his friend, an Anheuser-Busch distributor in his district. We checked in with Gaetz. Mr. Gaetz, why are you opposed to loosening up regulations for the craft beer industry? Doesnt that go against the grain, so to speak, of the Republicans distaste for overregulation? This is the famous Budweiser beer, Gaetz said. We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood aging produces a taste, a smoothness and a drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price. Time shall tell whether Gaetz will fall off his high Clydesdale while tripping over puppet strings. Surprised that the craft beer bars havent put his face on their dartboards. They probably dont realize how easy it is to find his face. It can be downloaded at www.flsenate.gov/ Senators/s1. Oh-oh. Gov. Scott is calling again. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? he said. Yes, sir. Thank you. The governor these days has been busy announcing new major road construction projects such as building an elevated expressway linking Interstate 275 and U.S. 19 in our area and widening the last four-lane section of Interstate 95. I didnt bother to ask him if he has given any further thought to funding high-speed rail or similar mass transit projects. If he ever got on board mass transit, to quote C. Fred Jones, Ill eat my hat at high noon in front of the county courthouse. And the county courthouse may be the only place were going to be able to drop off election ballots if some lawmakers keep toying with voting laws. Meanwhile, Gaetz is on the line again. Hello, senator. This Buds for you, Tom. Sir? Click. At the time of this writing, yet to be determined is whether the cowboys in the Legislature will pistol whip their colleagues in line to support the shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later-in-a-riot legislation. Summarizing what Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in the Tampa Bay Times, its the definition of insanity. Thank you, sheriff. Youre the canary in the coal mine. I long to see the day when Florida legislators put the interests of their constituents ahead of special interests, Yosemite Sam, Budweiser or whatever. But Im an ironclad doubting Thomas. If common sense ever takes precedence over special interests in Tallahassee, Ill eat my Florida Gator visor at high noon in front of a sellout FSU crowd at Doak Campbell Stadium and wash it down with a growler full of brew.

North Redington Beach completed a $3.2 million project which included: to enhance safety to the existing Gulf Boulevard crosswalks changes will improve pedestrian safety, February 2014. The following month three pedestrians were killed trying to cross Gulf Boulevard, March 2014. The Department of Transportation concluded a seven-year study May 1, 2010, and reached this conclusion: to 1 ratio a pedestrian is more likely to have an accident inside versus outside crosswalk. Midblock crosswalks are dangerous (Franklin County Traffic Safety Board) advises four lane roads with 10,000 traffic or more mid-block crosswalks should not be considered even if a pedestrian safety median separates opposing traffic lanes. The North Redington Beach Gulf Boulevard traffic count is 14,551+/(Pinellas County records) All being mid-block crosswalks. North Redington Beach has more crosswalks per linear feet on Gulf Boulevard in .9 mile of a 13.5-mile segment of BIG-C beach towns stretching from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater. Beach Beacon article April 2 titled BIG-C focuses on pedestrian safety quoted Indiana man who died would probably be still alive had he checked for cars. I believe Jed Gettinger Indiana Man would probably be alive had there not been a mid-block crosswalk on Gulf Boulevard with a traffic count of 14,551 +/giving him a false sense of security he was safe in a crosswalk. Ive been crossing Gulf Boulevard for over a half century, never having one problem crossing the way my mother taught me: Look Both Ways. I cross at places where it seems safest. I trust myself to determine when and where its safe to cross: not a sign, flashing light, paint on the pavement or waving a yellow flag. I believe officials make the best decisions with the references they have at the time. Im here to offer some new references that will hopefully enable safer decisions for our community. Disagree? Then cross Gulf Boulevard using a crosswalk. My concern is you will not be around to offer rebuttal. My heart goes out to the families of Darrel Johnson, Patrick McClean and Jed Gettinger who lost their lives attempting to cross Gulf Boulevard safely. John Messmore North Redington BeachColumn on Affordable Care not correctEditor: We wife and I have lived in Harbor Bluffs/Belleair for 35 years. We have enjoyed the Belleair Bee for many years. I cannot remember the Bee having a nationally syndicated opinion writer in the past. I respectfully suggest that Debra Saunders does not enhance your publication one iota. Her recent piece on the Affordable Care Act is just plain not correct. I strongly suggest you reconsider the need for a national columnist. Alan E. James Jr. Belleair A few months ago I surrendered my Verizon 4G smart phone. It was an ostentatious instrument, capable of doing everything from reporting the exact time in Baruun-Urt, Mongolia, to broadcasting country music from Toad Suck, Ark. For two years my trusty Android robbed me of hours upon hours of time as I searched the Web for tasty treats like akutag, a frosty Arctic dessert made from seal or moose fat, to goodies from the Weird Food Club of New York City that includes scorpion with chili peppers, broiled snake, goose intestines, and brain soup. Ummm. Yummy! Then there was the probing of news sites from around the world, or listening to live stream radio stations from distant places like Fiji, Iceland, Fairbanks, and Tampa. (OK, so Tampa is not that far away.) I thrilled to the days of yesteryear on an old time radio app as the Lone Ranger galloped across the plains with his faithful companion, Tonto, or the creaking door as the Shadow emitted his bizarre guffaw. I had about 100 apps on my Android phone that included a pedometer, camera, heart rate monitor, maps, instructions, communications, games and even a nifty smell-oapp that allegedly spewed the fragrance of morning coffee, searing burgers on a grille, and even sensuous come-up-to-my-placesometime perfume. I never did get that one to work. Although people warned that smart phones are as addictive as recreational drugs at a meth clinic, I signed the contract that catapulted me into cyber space. Vanished were the days of watching the human entertainment at Walmart. I could watch the People of Walmart website instead. At night I remained secluded in a rear room punching the minuscule keyboard to chat with computer-generated friends I never met. I played Scrabble with a woman in Japan who created unrecognizable words like dapifer and sepulchral to beat me into submission. I exchanged messages with a farmer in a small North Dakota town who bragged about being able to start the family pick-up truck in 56 degrees below zero weather. AT&T developed the first wireless network in 1946, but the gizmo that combined a telephone and computer didnt come along until 1973. By the late 1990s the Palm Pilot and the Windows Pocket PC were gaining popularity. Early smart phones had limited functionality and, with the exception of Japan, were relatively unknown in most of the world. Then along came the BlackBerry, dubbed the CrackBerry, due to its addictive appeal. It reigned supreme until Apple and Android versions were introduced a few years later. Apple in 2007 ushered in the first iPhone that offered a touch screen to replace the diminutive stylus keyboard. The Googlebacked Android arrived two years later. The rest is history. The future holds many wonders such as folding phones sans batteries that will be powered by radio, television and cellular signals. Google Glass ... eyeglasses with built-in mini computers ... is being developed along with surgically implanted micro projectors that will beam touch screens on hard surfaces such as desks, tables and even public restroom walls. The technology will be available to the public within five years. The smart phones, numbered at approximately 500 million worldwide, also create environmental, social and other challenges. They contain toxic chemicals like arsenic and mercury. They are the prominent target of thieves and other villains. They cause innumerable motor vehicle accidents thanks to inattentive drivers who simply must check messages and websites while piloting 2 tons of steel down a highway at 65 mph. Then there are the security issues, too plentiful to mention here. People spend more time on their smart phones than interacting with friends, neighbors and relatives. I once saw a mother and young daughter at a tire store communicating with each other via smart phone ... while seated in the same waiting room! What it boils down to is that people dont talk anymore; they text or email or leave messages on Facebook and other social media sites. Kids fail to foster human relationships, and are clueless about the world beyond modern electronics. I enjoy not being held hostage by my Android smart phone. It now rests soundless in a desk drawer; its screen forever extinguished while I blissfully converse with people face to face and, for better or worse, remains somewhat ignorant of the frivolities in cyberspace. I now have an old-fashioned flip phone if someone needs to talk with me. And if I burrow around the attic long enough I can probably exhume my prehistoric Ma Bell black dial phone with a real ringer that graced my desk a million years ago. And who knows ... maybe I can invent a holster of sorts to carry it on my hip. I could actually launch a whole new fad!Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor.

In order to achieve Baby-Friendly status, the hospital continues to demonstrate its ability to offer breastfeeding mothers the information, support and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies. A maternity facility can be given Baby-Friendly status by meeting requirements set forth by the World Health Organization and continuing to follow the 10 Steps of Successful Breastfeeding including: helping all mothers initiate breastfeeding within one hour of birth, showing mothers how to breastfeed and maintain lactation even if they should be separated from their infants, giving newborn infants only breast milk unless medically indicated, practicing rooming-in by allowing mothers and infants to remain together 24 hours a day, and encouraging unrestricted breastfeeding on cue. Studies continue to demonstrate that there are many benefits to breastfeeding that extend well beyond the initial first days of life. With the philosophy, education and support in place, Morton Plant has increased the percentage of women successfully breastfeeding from 63 percent in 1991 to 85 percent in 2013. The hospital offers lactation consultants, educational classes for expectant moms to post-delivery and a variety of support groups for nursing moms. Morton Plant Hospital received its first Baby-Friendly designation in 2003. Morton Plant Hospitals sister facility Mease Countryside Hospital also has Baby Friendly status from WHO and UNICEF.

Lustig, a theatre major, expects to graduate in 2015. Sittloh earns roster spotSEMINOLE Jennifer Sittloh of Seminole recently was named to the Zia softball roster at Eastern New Mexico University. ENMU is a NCAA Division II institution, affiliated with the Lone Star Conference.SPC to host Village Square programSEMINOLE The controversial issue of legalizing medical marijuana will be debated at the next Village Square program of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College. The program, Medical Marijuana: Is Florida Going to Pot?, will be presented Thursday, April 17, 6 to 8:15 p.m., in the conference center of the Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N., Seminole Advance reservations for this dinner event are required. Registration for Village Square members and educators is $25; for guests, $30, and for students, $20. To register, visit spcollege.edu /solutions and click on the Village Square tab. To register by mail, send checks to Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733. For information, call 3946251. The program is co-sponsored by the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU Television. With the Florida Supreme Courts 4-3 ruling Jan. 27 that a proposed amendment meets all legal requirements to go on the Nov. 4 ballot, the stage was set for a heated campaign on whether Florida should legalize use of marijuana for health reasons. A distinguished panel will debate the issue. Speaking for the amendment will be Ben Pollara, campaign manager for United For Care, the organization behind the initiative petition campaign. Speaking against will be Carlton E. Turner, former assistant to the president and director of the White House Drug Abuse Policy Office the Drug Czar under President Ronald Reagan.Presenting the point of view of law enforcement will be Bob Gualtieri, sheriff of Pinellas County.The moderator will be Craig Kopp, news anchor and host of All Things Considered on WUSF NPR Radio. The proposed amendment, if approved by 60 percent of voters, would permit Florida doctors to approve use of marijuana by individuals with debilitating diseases for which benefits would outweigh risk. The most commonly cited conditions are cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, ALS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease, Alzheimers and Crohns Disease. Opponents say that the ballot phrase as determined by a licensed Florida physician leaves the door open to certifying use of marijuana for almost any ailment or complaint. The Village Square is a forum for nonpartisan debate of key state and national issues that operates under the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Institute serves as a resource for academic enrichment, a nonpartisan venue for civil debate and civic engagement. Eckerd Review set to launchST. PETERSBURG Edgar Award winner Lori Roy will appear at the Eckerd College Reading and Art Party to help unveil the 2014 edition of Eckerd Review on Monday, May 5, 5:30 p.m., in Cobb Gallery on campus, 4200 54th Ave. S. The event is free and open to the public. Roy won the 2012 Edgar Award for best first novel, and her second book, Until She Comes Home, is nominated for best novel this year. She attributes much of her success to her four-time attendance at the annual Eckerd College Writers Conference: Writers in Paradise, co-founded and co-directed by Professor of Literature and Creative Writing Emeritus Sterling Watson and Dennis Lehane, a 1988 graduate of Eckerds Creative Writing program and last years Edgar Award winner for best novel. An interview of Roy is included in Eckerd Review 2014, a journal of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and art created by members of the Eckerd community and published by students. During the Reading and Art Party, Roy will participate in a Q&A session covering parts of that interview. The event also will feature readings from other works in the Review, including poems by St. Petersburg Poet Laureate Peter Meinke and Eckerd College President Donald Eastman. Visual art from the 2014 Review will be displayed in Cobb Gallery May 5-9 and celebrated at the party.

Multi-platinum recording artist Air Supply will perform in concert in the intimate Capitol Theatre. Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met in 1975 in Sydney, Australia, where they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles, and of course, singing. They made a demo of two songs, Love and Other Bruises and If You Knew Me and took it to every record company in Sydney. Everyone turned it down but one, CBS Records, who admired their unique style. Their first single shot to No. 1 on the national charts and that same year they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the United States and Canada. Returning home, they made an album, Life Support, which included Lost in Love, that went to the Top 10 in Australia and somehow found its way to music industry executive Clive Davis in New York. Davis immediately signed Air Supply to Arista Records and in 1980, Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Their second single, All Out of Love, went to the top of the charts even quicker. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies.

PETERSBURG The birth of photography turned the camera into a notebook of history especially when it came to battlefields and those in uniform. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is bringing that notebook of American military history to St. Petersburg with the opening of The American Soldier A Photographic Tribute. The exhibit opened March 18 and will run through July 13. The American Soldier is a dramatic exhibition of 116 wall-to-wall photographs capturing the essence of American soldiering for more than 150 years. The exhibition guides visitors through the Civil War, Spanish American War, Boxer Rebellion, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Afghanistan, and the streets of Baghdad. The exhibition captures the emotions of danger, frustration, humor, camaraderie, death and victory that American soldiers encountered in this odyssey through history. Arriving from the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum in Texas, space for the exhibit was an initial challenge, but the museum underwent interior renovations adding exhibit space to accommodate The American Soldier and enhance the guest experience. The arrival of this amazing exhibit is a major coup for St. Petersburg and the Museum of History, said Rui Farias in a press release. Farias is executive director at the museum. It compelled us to be creative and in the process, the redesign and remodeling of our interior exhibit space is energetic and inviting. This exhibit gives the Museum of History the opportunity to re-create itself as a cultural center. Our goal is to use art, photographs and artifacts to teach history. Cyma Rubin is the curator and producer of The American Soldier, as well as the curator of the highly successful exhibition, Capture the Moment The Pulitzer Prize Photographs. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is at 335 Second Ave. NE. Museum hours for the exhibit are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.Venue Theatre hosts salePINELLAS PARK Venue Theatre, at 9125 U.S. 19 N., Pinellas Park, is having a spring cleaning sale through April 26.

Summer movie lineupTop 10 most anticipated summer flicks and five potential sleepers scheduled to hit the big screen By LEE CLARK ZUMPEJudging by the box office numbers being generated by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it almost seems like the summer movie season is already underway. Of course, it isnt and, according to the Gregorian calendar, the first day of summer falls on June 21. But Hollywood doesnt pay much attention to such pesky details. As far as the film studios are concerned, the drive to fill theaters by hyping an endless parade of potential blockbusters marks the start of summer. That procession generally commences in early May although it seems to be arriving earlier and earlier each year. Last summers blockbuster lineup kicked off with Iron Man 3, which followed the previous summers box office champion, Marvels The Avengers. Iron Man 3 grossed $1.2 billion worldwide last year. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is Marvel Studios first big hit of the year, bringing in plenty of revenue since its release earlier this month. As of this past weekend, the film had grossed about $477 million worldwide. The summer movie lineup features many more superheroes hoping to cash in on the comicbook-to-big-screen bandwagon. Its likely one or more will be this years top-earning blockbuster. But what is a blockbuster? Websters defines the term as something notably expensive, effective, successful, large or extravagant. The 1975 film Jaws ushered in the era of the summer blockbuster. Movie studios adopted a marketing strategy focusing on the release of at least one supergrossing flick no later than July 4. Early examples of summer blockbusters include Star Wars, released May 25, 1977; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, released June 4, 1982; Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, released May 23, 1984; and Batman, released June 23, 1989. Each of these films had exceptional opening weekend revenues. Following is a list of this years 10 most anticipated summer blockbusters. Only time will tell which ones will go on to become spectacular Hollywood cash cows and which ones will turn out to be box office bombs.No. 1 X-Men: Days of Future PastRelease date: May 23 Cast: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Evan Jonigkeit Those lovable mutants are back in this adaptation of the Uncanny X-Men storyline Days of Future Past by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. An ensemble of XMen members work to prevent a war that will lead to a dystopian future and possibly the extinction of their kind. The film is unique in that it is a sequel to both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class and features cast members from both incarnations of the franchise.No. 2 The Amazing Spider-Man 2Release date: May 2 Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and B.J. Novak The web-slinger is back with more Peter Parker angst. Just as Parker is getting comfortable playing the hero, he is forced to face formidable villains in this electrifying sequel. Thats right: Electro is in town and Spider-Man is about to realize that all his enemies seem to have one thing in common: Oscorp.No. 3 GodzillaRelease date: May 16 Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston In the immortal words of Blue Oyster Cult: Oh, no, there goes Tokyo go, go Godzilla.Its not even worth guessing how many Godzilla movies have been made since the original 1954 classic. The most recent American adaptation hit the screen in 1998 and starred Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno. Although it earned a significant amount of derision, it still did well at the box office.Now, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are ready to resurrect the monster for another generation and in the insanely popular and nearly Oscar-worthy trailers, actor Bryan Cranston best known for portraying Walter White in Breaking Bad vehemently sounds the alarm. This one could be epic.No. 4 MaleficentRelease date: May 30 Cast: Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Photo courtesy of UNIVERSAL PICTURESScarlett Johansson stars in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville Disney has taken the iconic villainess from its classic 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty and crafted her story into a dark fantasy. Audiences will learn how betrayal led to Maleficents malevolent mischief.No. 5 Transformers 4: Age of ExtinctionRelease date: June 27 Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver Michael Bay apparently doesnt have anything else to work on, so, why not crank out another Transformers film. This will be the fourth installment in the franchise and someone must have realized it was time to shake things up a bit. This one features a new cast Shia LaBeouf is out, Mark Wahlberg is in and, for the first time in Bays ongoing series, the Autobots and Decepticons are joined by Dinobots. This obviously begs the question: How long before Hollywood decides to pit kaiju against Dinobots? No. 6 Dawn of the Planet of the ApesRelease date: July 11 Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi SmitMcPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer The sequel to 2011s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set about a decade after the events of the first film and after an epidemic has decimated humankind. The survivors find themselves facing a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar. In this sci-fi survival-of-the-fittest scenario, war between ape and man seems unavoidable.No. 7 Jupiter AscendingRelease date: July 18 Cast: Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James DArcy and Tim Pigott-Smith In this sci-fi action adventure film, Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a housecleaner plagued by a lifetime of bad breaks. Then one day Caine played by Channing Tatum shows up and Jupiter discovers that her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.No. 8 Guardians of the GalaxyRelease date: Aug. 1 Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro With Fantastic Four and The XMen tied up at Twentieth Century Fox, Marvel Studios has decided its next big push in the unfolding Marvel Cinematic Universe will be a lesser-known property: Guardians of the Galaxy. While one doesnt need to be a comic book aficionado to name at least a few members of The Avengers, it is unlikely that the average person could cough up the names of this ragtag bunch: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. There are a few others, but so far, these folks seem to be the only ones who will make it to the big screen for this installment unless Adam Warlock shows up in a cameo. To become a blockbuster, this film has to appeal to more than Marvels core fan base. Early trailers have emphasized both the science fiction and humor components of the story. It wouldnt be a surprise if Marvel Studios tossed in a few surprise appearances by one or two of their hottest properties. Robert Downey Jr. isnt that busy, after all. See SUMMER MOVIES, page 8B

No. 9 LucyRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. The trailers for this film look spectacular, although the story premise seems awfully similar to 2011s thriller Limitless. No. 10 Into the StormRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep and Scott Lawrence Disaster movie genre, meet found footage genre. In Into the Storm, professional storm chasers and not-so-smart thrill-seekers eager to get the perfect picture of a tornado capture the destruction of the town of Silverton during a really bad weather day. Those who adored Twister will likely find this glimpse at Mother Natures dark side appealing. But wait theres more Every summer, there are a few surprise hits films that might not quite reach blockbuster status, but that outperform expectations and earn far more than they cost to produce. These sleeper hits are often first screened in limited release, distributed to select art house theaters and shown at festivals. Sometimes, due simply to word-of-mouth not to mention social media these films end up expanding into mainstream movie theaters. They offer a welcome alternative to Hollywoods cookie-cutter formula blockbusters. Here are a handful of films that might qualify as this years sleeper hits.No. 5 Blood GlacierLimited release: May 2 Cast: Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Brigitte Kren, Hiller Beseler and Peter Knaack This one promises to evoke classic creature features. An ecological horror film, the story follows Janek, a technician on a climate observation station high up in the German Alps. He discovers a strange red liquid pouring from a nearby glacier. When substance comes in contact with the local wildlife, it causes changes that are at first curious, then horrifying.No. 4 The SignalLimited release: June 13 Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp and Laurence Fishburne Three college students on a road trip across the Southwest experience a detour and that kind of thing rarely leads to anything good, does it? Nick and Jonah are MIT freshmen with a passion for hacking. While driving cross-country through Nevada with Nicks girlfriend, Hailey, they follow clues left by a rival hacker named Nomad, which leads them to an eerily isolated area. After a terrifying confrontation with Nomad, the group regains consciousness in captivity and Nick finds he is in a waking nightmare.No. 3 I OriginsLimited release: July 18 Cast: Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Bergs-Frisbey, Steven Yeun and Archie Panjabi I Origins follows a molecular biologist whose study of the human eye points to evidence with far reaching implications about our scientific and spiritual beliefs.No. 2 A Most Wanted ManLimited release: July 25 Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe and Daniel Brhl A Most Wanted Man is based on master story-teller John le Carrs worldwide bestselling book. In Hamburg, Germany, a mysterious, tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in the citys Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian fathers ill-gotten fortune. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Willem Dafoe) and a young female lawyer (Rachel McAdams) who is determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. A Most Wanted Man promises a cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.No. 1 The Green InfernoRelease date: Sept. 5 Cast: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss Blanton At the very end of summer comes Eli Roths The Green Inferno, a cannibal horror thriller. In Roths terrifying new film The Green Inferno, a group of college students take their humanitarian protest from New York to the Amazon jungle only to get kidnapped by the native tribe they came to save. Problem: It happens to be a tribe that still practices the ancient tribal rite of cannibalism and they have a healthy appetite for intruders. Maybe it wont be a blockbuster but its sure to become a cult classic. For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.

Page 13A State of the cityCPA says Seminole in good financial shape; mayor discusses fiscal 2013 year thus far By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Mayor Leslie Waters gave her State of the City address at the April 8 City Council meeting, following the 2013 comprehensive annual financial report from the citys accounting firm, Wells, Houser & Schatzel, P.A. And the city is in good financial shape, said Peter Schatzel from WHS. I am pleased to say that based upon the results of fiscal year 2013 and based upon the citys previous financial condition, that the annual financial report does reflect that you are in fact in very sound financial condition at the end of fiscal year 2013, he said. The citys general fund balance has enough to cover five months of city expenses in an emergency, he said, which is a safe reserve. I have found over the years that a lot of cities try to have at least three months, Schatzel added. I think three months is viewed as the minimum to have on hand. An average of three to six months is a good reserve to have on hand. This is an increase over previous years, he said. In 2012, this reserve would have covered 4.4 months of expenses, and 4.5 months the three years prior to that. Schatzel also discussed the citys firefighters pension fund. The fund had a $2.1 million increase in equity in fiscal year 2013, compared to $4.8 million the year before. Part of this discrepancy can be explained by the number of lump-sum payouts, which totaled around $793,000, made to firefighters who left Seminole Fire Rescue. The city also spent $1.7 million on capital assets for the fire rescue company, including nearly $1 million on improvements made to Fire Station 30. He also noted that in fiscal year 2013 the city paid off the last of the debt incurred to build the recreation center in 1999. Now, he said, the city has just one bond left, about $3.6 million, on two public works buildings built in Features Business . . . . . . . . . .14A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . . . .8A County . . . . . . . . . . .6-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . .10-11A Health . . . . . . . . . . .15A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . .12A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .17A Real Estate . . . . . . . . . .9A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .16A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-5A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Get a taste of the summer movie lineups anticipated hits. ...

Always a bit of a nomad, in her mind shed wander the country while creating her art. Each day shed wake up in a new city; each day shed sell her work on the side of the road to make ends meet. These days, the project has become a reality. But the NOMAD Studio that stands for Neighborhood-Oriented Mobile Art & Design Studio has taken on a much larger scope and focuses more on the communitys needs than her own. Now, Bouchers goal is to take her mobile art studio concept into community events throughout not just the Tampa Bay region, but the entire state, and to provide art projects and lessons for everyone, no matter the age or skill level, along the way. This is not my project is the way I look at it, she said. There was a point early on where I thought it was my project. But it became apparent to me as I started talking to people about it that its a lot bigger than me. Boucher, a 1992 Seminole High School graduate, attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and spent a decade in the Windy City. She worked as a metalsmith, and also designed windows and did product photography for a small downtown boutique. Then about three years ago she was ready to make more of an impact on a community, and realized coming home to Pinellas County was the best way to do that. When youre in Chicago or a big city you can make an impact, but its hard to do, she said. So I felt like I wanted to return to my roots and see what was going on here and hopefully bring back some of what Ive learned in the arts. But she wasnt initially sure where this impact would be made. Eventually after returning home, she found herself teaching art to elementary school students at Plato Academy, a charter school in Seminole. This became the inspiration for NOMAD. While she was afforded some flexibility with lesson plans and projects for students, she found there was never enough time for the arts. Students would often be pulled from her class for myriad NOMAD studio art bus rolls onPhoto by TIFFANY RAZZANOCarrie Boucher, founder of the nonprofit NOMAD Studio, a mobile art project, inside her art bus.Photo courtesy of CARRIE BOUCHERChildren draw on the NOMAD Studio art bus, which founder Carrie Boucher hopes to use to bring art to community events throughout the region. See NOMAD STUDIO, page 4AThe energy company provided more than $500,000 for a large solar array at the Seminole campus and a second array on the Clearwater campus and provided for related educational outreach efforts. Monitors on each campus show daily production of energy from the arrays, and engineering and environmental technology students use the information for research. The arrays are projected to save the college as much as $20,000 a year in energy costs. Since its installation earlier this year, for example, the Seminole array has produced more than almost 18,000kWh of energy, enough to fully charge 737 electric cars or almost 3.3 million smartphones. Questions answered at SPC eTownHall meeting By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE Pinellas County citizens tweeted, blogged, phoned and asked questions in person during the FY 2015 Budget eTownHall meeting April 9 in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College. Communications officials report that about 250 people logged on to the blog and another 50 attended the hour-long live event. More than 65,000 received phone calls and an untold number watched the event streamed live on the countys website, pinellascounty.org, and on PCCTV. Mark Wilson, news anchor at Fox 13, moderated. County Administrator Bob LaSala answered questions from the public, as did all the commissioners, except Charlie Justice, who was sick. Wilson began the evening talking about results from a recent citizens survey that showed traffic and transit among top concerns. Several eTownHall participants asked transit-related questions. One wanted to know if transit was already part of the Pinellas for Pinellas program. Welch explained that Penny for Pinellas was a separate voter-approved tax that pays for capital improvement projects. Currently, PSTA receives its funding from ad valorem (property taxes). A referendum in November will allow voters to decide to change the method of funding to a 1 percent sales tax devoted entirely to transit needs. This is a vitally important initiative in our county, something weve talked about since the 1970s, said Commissioner Janet Long. Long said without transit improvements, the economy would become stagnant. Its 2014. All major metro areas have a way for people to get from the airport to the beach with a transportation option, she said. We dont have it.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, April 17, 2014 AROUND, from page 3A2005. This should be paid off by 2019 with Penny for Pinellas funds. During her State of the City address, Mayor Waters gave an overview of what the city has accomplished so far in fiscal year 2013, which began in October. Mayor Waters said the citys revenue is expected to decrease 3.7 percent compared to last year, making fiscal year 2013 the sixth straight budget year of declining revenues and subsequent reduced expenditures. Were hoping that 2015 brings stabilization to the budget, she said. She stressed, though, that unlike other cities facing similar financial strains following the 2008 recession, Seminole hasnt had to reduce services offered or increase millage rates. In fact, she said, the city has one of the lowest property tax rates in Pinellas County. She also said she set and met four major, personal goals for her first year in office: being accessible to local businesses, starting a citywide food drive, hosting regular Meet the Mayor forums, and teaching civic classes to children. The city recently kicked off its first Citizens Academy, one of the councils seven-year goals, which will be held every year moving forward. And one of the highlights of the year so far has been the hiring of new Fire Chief Heather Burford, Mayor Waters said. Construction will begin soon on the renovation of the former city hall in City Park. The multi-use facility will include rental space for the general public and the Historical Societys planned museum. Waterfront Park, which will be located on Long Bayou on Park Boulevard, next to Home Depot, also will become a reality this year, Mayor Waters said. The city has received around $200,000 in grants to redevelop the property into a city park with canoe and kayak access. The redevelopment of 60 acres along Bay Pines is underway. This mixed-use development will include residential and commercial uses, and Mayor Waters said shes hopeful the new owners of the Seminole Mall will announce their plans for that property this year. The future of Seminole looks bright, she said. reasons special events, FCAT training, sports. I felt like the amount of time we had to teach art was really short, Boucher said. Whenever they were told it was time to clean up, they were like, Aw, I dont want to clean up yet. It was the only time they didnt listen to me. They always wanted more art time. Frustrated, she came up with the concept for NOMAD. I love art, she said, and nobody should be pulled out of art and everybody should have access to art. Initially, she thought shed simply offer private lessons on an art studio bus. But by doing strictly paid lessons on a bus, youre eliminating a huge demographic of people who couldnt afford lessons, she said. So she decided to create NOMAD as a nonprofit organization, one that would be subsidized by donations and merchandise sales. Then she could take the bus anywhere she was needed in the community. The Perry family, which owns a series of Pit Stop Auto Repair shops in and around Venice, heard of Bouchers plan and contacted her. They had a bus on site to donate to her cause and would also provide free labor to get the vehicle up and running. For months Boucher and her volunteers would travel to Venice to work on the bus interior, getting it ready for public use with a long drawing table and seating. Even though its far from ready, she said, the bus debuted at the Gasparilla Arts Festival at Tampas Curtis Hixon Park last month. I couldnt have asked for a better place to debut at, though, Boucher said. She let those stopping by the bus contribute to its mural, since it was basically a giant whiteboard at that point and hadnt been painted yet. Children took crayons and drew all over the bus. On the bus, she offered guided art projects but also allowed kids to run with their inspiration. NOMAD saw hundreds of kids creating art on the bus that weekend, she said. It was incredible. Her work on the bus isnt done, though. Because it sat for several years, much of the original floor was rotting, so currently the floor is temporarily a covered 3/4 piece of plywood. The generator isnt working, so thats going to take some troubleshooting, she said. And once it is running, she needs to have an electrician give her the OK that the bus electrical system is safe to use. Then shell tackle the air conditioning system, which is important as summer months approach. Shed also like to install a sink for clean-up and get the wheelchair lift working again. That way it can be truly accessible to everyone, she said. Before getting this first bus, Boucher envisioned a whole fleet of busses, flooding the area with art. But she didnt realize how much work renovating one bus for the project would take. I still love that idea, she said. But for right now I want to get this bus done. Even while work on the bus is being completed, it can be found every Thursday evening at the Edge Farmers Market in St. Pete. And Boucher is building up her team of volunteers and is also seeking donations for the bus. People can either purchase a NOMAD Studio Tshirt for $20 or donate directly to the project on PayPal.com by sending it to donate@no madartbus.org. For more information about the project, visit www.facebook.com/NOMADartbus.The way art, and even music and things like that, are being defunded in public schools, we need to decide for ourselves if the arts are important to us, Boucher said. And if they are, then its our responsibility as a community to come together and teach art in an effective way. Ill do as much as I can to make it happen. But I cant do it on my own. NOMAD STUDIO, from page 1A STATE OF THE CITY, from page 1Arail system, but if the Greenlight Pinellas tax initiative were approved, it would be something coming in the future. Greenlight Pinellas is a transportation plan to move transit forward in Pinellas, said Commissioner Ken Welch. The first part of the plan improves bus services more flex routes and trolley services, evening services and more. The second part is light rail, which will come after. He answered a question as to why the rail couldnt be done by a private company by saying that a publicprivate partnership could be possible. Commissioner Susan Latvala told a caller that no county government money is spent to fund Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. She said PSTA had a separate budget and revenue stream. County tax money is not spent on PSTA and PSTA money is not spent on county government services. She pointed out that four commissioners sat of the PSTA board and helped oversee how the authoritys money was spent. Seel said the county was working on an interlocal agreement with PSTA that would ensure sales tax revenue would be spent as outlined in the Greenlight plan, should voters approve the 1 percent tax. The sales tax money collected would be passed through the county to PSTA.Budget questionsLaSala answered questions about the FY 2015 budget. He said although the budget was balanced, it would take great care to keep it that way. He explained that costs are continuing to rise faster than revenues. Were looking for ways to be more efficient, he said. One example is construction of a new chiller plant that should be finished in 2015. LaSala said it would help save on air conditioning costs. He recently presented an update to the 10-year budget forecast that showed challenges ahead for the future. Strategic planning is one of the things Im most proud of, said Commissioner Norm Roche, adding that it allowed more flexibility to adjust the budget year to year. He also commented on the survey. The survey is important, he said. It lets us know how were doing. Ninety percent say were meeting or exceeding service levels. Commissioner John Morroni agreed that the survey was important, but said the best feedback came from being out in the community. He pointed out that the survey involved only 800 people, while he attended a recent FAST (Faith and Action in Strength Together) with about 3,000 people in attendance. People are not afraid to tell you what they think, he said. A blogger asked if eliminating the Save Our Homes property tax exemption would give the county enough money to pay for services. Long explained that Save Our Homes was a state law, put into place after voters approved a constitutional amendment. She said voters would have to approve another amendment rescinding Save Our Homes, which she said was unlikely. Another participant asked about the importance of the property appraiser on the budget process. The property appraiser develops objective evaluative data based on tax values, LaSala said. The values are used to develop budget strategies. He said early estimates showed a 3 percent growth in property tax values and could come in higher, as much as 4 or 5 percent. Property values are an important part of our revenue base, he said. A blogger asked if the $5 fee to park in county parks with beach access was working to provide more money. Yes, said Latvala. It has kept us from having to BUDGET, from page 1A Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commissioners Janet Long, left, and Susan Latvala listen as Commissioner John Morroni makes comments during the FY 2015 Budget eTownHall meeting April 9 in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College.The guest speaker will be Elizabeth Fanslow, author of Be Amazing.

Roche said some people liked that less mowing was being done in the parks, allowing areas to become naturalized again. Another caller asked about funding for Emergency Medical Services and wanted to know if the commission was considering consolidation. Welch explained that due to the state charter governing EMS, the commission did not have the authority to consolidate. Consolidation, in my opinion, needs to happen, he said. We dont need 19 different districts. Meanwhile, county staff is working of saving money through enhancements to the 911 system and other measures, he said. Its important for consumers to recognize that we have the very best fire and EMS in the U.S., Long said. But it is also the most expensive. We need to find other ways to do it. But we have to be sensitive to the publics safety and wellbeing. She said change was difficult due to the political differences of those involved. So many people are resisting change, she said, adding that she had been married to a firefighter, retired now, for 37 years, so she understood the issue. Ive been a strong proponent of consolidation for years, Roche said, adding any change in the EMS system should be done with great care. He said there had been a lot of talk about regional consolidation and collaboration in recent years. We need to make sensible consolidation within our own borders. Welch answered the question about possible decrease in EMS millage, saying it could not go down as long as the cost to provide service continued to increase. On the question about abandoned houses in disrepair around the county, LaSala said the commission had approved adding three positions for code enforcement for this year. But, were mostly complaint driven, he said. And it takes time to make changes, as after notice is served about a problem, people have to be given a chance to resolve the issue. Morroni said the county was inadequate in its code enforcement and talked about an increase in the number of complaints.AccomplishmentsA caller asked the panel about the countys accomplishments. Seel talked about the countys growth and jobs. We had the best year ever in tourism bringing in over $31 million in bed tax revenue, she said. Were among the top counties in the state for tourism. She said the county was bringing in more high paying jobs and had retained more than 1,000 jobs last year. Morroni added that tourists had spent $5.5 billion in Pinellas last year. More than 1 million passengers used the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. Were doing gangbusters right now, he said. Long said with more carriers and Allegiant Air are adding routes, even more people would be coming to the county for business and to visit. They are paying a large percentage of Penny for Pinellas that we dont have to pay, she said.Business growthRoche answered a question about the importance of business growth. Thats one of the main challenges right now, he said. He said the average household income in the county was between $40,000 and $45,000, which causes concerns about the financial stress level on the population. He said most couldnt afford more taxes or fees. But Pinellas is a built-out county, meaning there isnt room to bring in large companies. He said officials needed to revision its business community for the future. Weve got to think different within the space we have, he said. Long said improved transportation options would help create new jobs and business growth along future rail corridors. Seel also fielded a question about construction on U.S. 19 and the hardship it was causing for businesses. She said that thanks to federal money and support from the Florida Department of Transportation, U.S. 19 projects had been fast tracked, meaning they can be completed 25 years ahead of schedule. She said extra money was made available to offer contractors incentives to finish the work sooner. She added that the Gulf-to-Bay span should be opening soon, which will give people an idea of what things will be like when ongoing construction is completed.Other questionsAnother caller asked about volunteer opportunities within county government. LaSala said volunteers were very important, providing 150,000 hours of service, equivalent to $5 million in service in a variety of capacities. They are doing work we wouldnt be able to do otherwise, he said. Seel answered the question about the future of the Waste to Energy plant. She said the contract with Duke Energy continues until 2024. Duke must buy the electricity we produce by burning trash, she said. She said the plant burned 1.5 tons of trash last year. Morroni added that Pinellas had recycled 1 million tons. Seel said due to the Waste to Energy plant, the county had not raised its tipping fee at the dump since 1985. LaSala added that tipping fees provide revenue for a renewal fund that paid for repairs, replacement and maintenance at the plant. Several questions came in about schools. Latvala explained that county government had nothing to do with schools. They elect their own board and have their own taxes, she said. Long, who sits on the Homeless Leadership Council, answered the question about what is being done about homelessness in Pinellas. She said many agencies were working together to assist, especially the fastest growing population of homeless families with children. Were trying to find a solution to get people into a program that can help them rise out of poverty so they can care for themselves, she said. She said some homelessness is tied to mental health issues as well as alcohol and drug abuse. She said many veterans were homeless, which is being addressed by the Veterans Administration and VA hospitals. Theyre doing their best to provide for them, she said. The final question asked if the county would be willing to pay if the Tampa Bay Rays said they wanted a new stadium in the Gateway area. Roche said the days of the taxpayer building stadiums was over. He said he didnt see Pinellas County citizens with an average household income of $43,000 paying for a new stadium. Latvala pointed out that the stadium would be paid for with bed tax money, which is mostly paid by tourists. If the opportunity comes up, there will be a public discussion and we will make the best decision, she said. BUDGET, from page 4A

David Jolly takes on beach nourishmentWASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman David W. Jolly called on members of the U.S. House April 9 to support the Senate version of the recentlypassed Water Resources Reform and Development Act that would extend the federal authorization of the 50-year ongoing renourishment project in Treasure Island. Like many of the infrastructure projects Congress takes on, our nation has made a longterm investment in the safety and prosperity of our Pinellas community through this project, and similar projects up and down the coastline, Jolly said in a press release. Stable beaches protect public and private infrastructure along our coastline, and the communities that call them home. Beach renourishment provides a flood buffer, which is vital for protecting both lives and property during severe storms and hurricanes. Beach nourishment funding in Pinellas County also provides for the districts economy by ensuring Pinellas beaches remain a sought-after destination for visitors from around the world, Jolly said. Tourism is one of Floridas most important economic drivers, with an estimated 38.4 million out-of-state visitors heading to Florida beaches each year. For a county that is surrounded by water, and a state with more beach visitors than all of the U.S. National Parks combined, allowing Florida coastlines to deteriorate would translate into jobs and revenue lost, as well as economic uncertainty. The Senate version of the Water Resources Reform and Development allowed for reauthorization of beach renourishment projects and it is my hope that the House will support the Senates effort in this regard as they work toward an agreement in the Conference Committee, Jolly continued. A major driver of the Florida economy is tourism. In Pinellas County alone, tourism officials estimate that visitors bring a $7.3 billion economic impact annually our community simply cannot afford to have our beaches deteriorate from coastal erosion. The benefits of well-protected coastlines extend far beyond Pinellas County and the state of Florida. When it comes to the National Flood Insurance Program for example, which benefits the entire nation, Florida remains a major donor, in part due to the security provided by the ongoing beach construction program. Just as Congress supports national infrastructure projects in other regions, like maintaining ports and waterways and flood control along rivers and streams, we need Congress to make sure that our countrys 50-year investment in our Pinellas coastal community remains protected, Jolly said. Court employees recognized earn productivity awardCLEARWATER The eight members of the Fiscal Team of the Administrative Office of the Courts for the Sixth Judicial Circuit were named as a team winner of a 2014 Prudential Financial-Davis Productivity Award, which recognizes state employees whose innovations significantly improve the delivery of state services and saves money for Floridas taxpayers. The annual statewide competition attracted 568 nominations for improvements worth an estimated $558 million in cost savings, cost avoidances and increased revenue for the state of Florida. The local employees were one of just four court groups to be acknowledged around the state. They will be recognized at a regional awards ceremony June 13 in Tampa. The team that earned the citation includes Budget Services Manager Rob Snyder, and fiscal assistants Tanja Fitzgerald, Mary Kris Lichtenberg, Inass Riyad and Justin Thom, all of whom work in Pinellas County courthouses; and Administrative Services Manager Stephanie LoBalbo, and fiscal assistants Chris Hover and Susan Vega, who work in courthouses in New Port Richey and Dade City. They were cited for the implementation of four programs, including two for which the savings are measureable. The four projects are: Development of a co-op system of supply ordering where an employee must first ask other employees via email whether they have a needed supply item before ordering anything new. In five years, the Circuits office supply budget dropped from $114,954 to $100,729, or 12 percent even while the individual items went through the normal price creep upward. Implementation of stringent cost recovery standards, such as requiring pre-payment of due process services in most cases, and by pursuing cost recovery when pre-payment cannot be made. In the past five years, almost $1.2 million has been recovered for due process services. Transferal of some contractual vendor rates from hourly with travel to a flat rate that includes travel time, and limiting the frequency with which supplies may be ordered to once per month, reduced the number of invoices that have to be processed, audited, and signed. In four years, total invoice count dropped almost 35 percent, from 5,729 to 3,781. In an effort to reduce offsite storage, printing costs and paper consumption, the Sixth Judicial Circuits fiscal and technology offices joined forces to initiate two projects: 1) the replacement of individual desktop printers with shared network printers and copiers, saving hardware and print cartridge costs; 2) a shift to electronic storage of documents, resulting in less paper being stored off site, thus cutting monthly storage fees and the need for onsite file cabinets.

Comfort Keepers takes pride in our team consisting of a cohesive staff and one hundred plus caregivers working together towards the same goal of providing our community of seniors with the utmost care, enabling them to stay safe and happy in the comfort of their own homes. At Comfort Keepers our goal is to create a team of caregivers who have the heart, patience, dedication, loyalty and love for nurturing others. This sounds like a perfect mix of attributes and ones that do exist in so many people. Caregiving can be one of the most difficult yet rewarding careers. To some it comes naturally, especially if you are a nurturer by nature. For others it may be a calling they are somewhat unsure of but feel they wish to pursue. A key and valued portion of the interviewing process at Comfort Keepers is to learn the desire of the potential candidate to join the Comfort Keepers Team as a caregiver. We are a team centered on making a difference in each clients home in order to provide the very best of care and understanding of the individual needs. We create a Plan of Care specific to each person and do our utmost to match a caregiver with each client. Making a good match is highly important in building trust between caregiver and client. We do our best to match caregivers to clients in regards to personalities, while paying close attention to skills needed. Our caregivers participate in spring and fall in-services with many topics to choose from. We have several guest speakers who graciously give of their time to assist us in our training meetings. These training topics include caring for alzheimers dementia clients, hospice awareness, falls risk prevention and transferring, senior nutrition and elder abuse. Our mission is to provide our caregivers with the knowledge most pertinent to caring for our seniors which in turn builds their confidence to offer the best possible care to our clients. Experience is not the #1 ingredient to being a good caregiver. It takes personality, empathy, reliability and most of all willingness to serve on both good and bad days. Caregivers often visit with me and share stories regarding their time spent with clients. It is quite touching to see in their eyes and hear in their voice that they are truly fulfilled in playing such an important role in the lives of others.

Speaking at an April 8 work session, LaSala said the telephone survey was very, very accurate and provided a very precise bit of feedback from our citizens. Sarah Lindemuth of HCP, a national research, strategy and marketing firm headquartered in Tampa, agreed, saying the 2014 results showed the highest percent of favorable responses on quality of life questions since the county implemented the use of an annual survey in 2011. The random digit dial telephonic survey, conducted Feb. 1-17, involved 800 residents 200 from north county, 200 from mid county, 200 from south county and 200 residents who live on the beaches. The goal: to measure citizen expectations and perceptions regarding key drivers for citizen qualify of life, to determine strengths and opportunities for improvements, according to Lindemuths PowerPoint presentation. She said the survey included calls to the countys large base of longterm residents as well as newer residents, who tend to be younger, have children and higher levels of income. She said the strongest ambassadors for the county are age 65 and older, those new within the past 10 years, those with higher education and incomes above $50,000. The number who said they would recommend Pinellas as a place to retire, live, raise children and/or work increased some significantly as compared to 2012 and 2013 survey answers. Nine out of 10 said they would recommend the county as a place to live and retire, and almost nine in 10 would recommend Pinellas as a place to work and raise children. Perceptions of current quality of life, compared to five years ago, significantly improved versus 2013, continuing an upward trend, she said. More respondents indicated optimism for future quality of life. She also reported that citizens trust and confidence in county government significantly exceeds trust and confidence levels reported in a National Gallup Poll. Few of those surveyed said they had plans to move from Pinellas within the next year. Most who participated in the survey said the county is better aligning with expectation on a majority of community characteristics. Results were not as favorable as to meeting expectations for transportation and economic factors, she said. The biggest gap was for traffic flow. Pinellas has a strong base of tenured residents nearly four in five, or 79.9 percent, have lived in the county for more than 10 years. The survey showed an 11 percent increase in new residents, those who have lived in Pinellas for four years or less. Lindemuth pointed out a few statistical differences between responses from residents of unincorporated areas versus those who live in incorporated (municipalities) area in terms of whether expectations are being met. The biggest differences were reported in water drainage management and having a point of contact for concerns. In unincorporated areas, 82.5 percent said the county was meeting expectations for water drainage management as compared to 76.2 percent in incorporated areas. As to a point of contact for concerns, 78.7 percent of those surveyed in unincorporated areas said expectations were being met for having a point of contact for concerns, 3.8 percent said expectations were exceeded and 14.8 said expectations were not being met. In municipal areas, 67.4 percent said the availability of a point of contact met expectations, 9.9 percent said it exceeded expectations and 6.5 percent said expectations were not being met. Responses exude more optimism than in prior studies for quality of life, Lindemuth said, when talking about the trends shown by the survey. Citizens continue to challenge the county on the topics of economy, transportation and the natural environment. Other trends of note reveal job-related challenges, she said. Reaction to select transportation topics suggests congestion remains a detractor to overall resident experience, she added LaSala said he was pleased with the results. Im proud of what this tells us, he said. But it doesnt mean there is not room for improvement.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERSarah Lindemuth of HCP talks about results of a recent citizens survey during the April 8 Pinellas County Commission work session.

For his Eagle Scout Project, Nagel worked with Heritage Village to design and build a preparation table and cabinet for the primitive cooking area. The items were constructed from rough-cut cypress and hand-built to fit into the historical timeframe for Heritage Village. He also built a cooking fire pit, provided a safety fence, and enclosed a water source. The project took over 160 hours of work by Nagel and his fellow Scouts. He also regularly volunteers at Heritage Village, giving tours and providing information during festivals and other events. Nagel started in scouting as a Tiger with Cub Scout Pack 431 and eventually earned the Arrow of Light. As a Boy Scout, he has earned 29 merit badges and held multiple positions of leadership within Troop 431.

Three recent events at sea whisper of its coming. But it is late. The dolphin spring is marked by a return of dolphins to the Intracoastal Waterway estuary from their winter quarters. Their winter quarters are presumably the Gulf of Mexico. But no one really knows where our local dolphins go during the cold months, which, when you think about it, is strange. The first maritime sign that the dolphin spring is almost unsprung is the flirting of the water temperature. Why is the water temperature in our local backwaters in the 60s for most of the cold months and in the 80s for most of the warm months, but is so briefly at the transition temperatures of the 70s in between? Water temperatures have been flirting with the telltale 70-degree mark in the last couple of weeks, coyly approaching it and then retreating from it bashfully. I should ask my database if dolphins begin returning in earnest once the water temperatures hit the 70s or it only seems that way. A second sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the small squad of teens we encountered the other day. Their message was double-speak. We found them as a quartet of three males (VC, Oyster and PC) and one female (Babyface) that swelled into a quintet as they headed west and joined teen female AM. They were uncharacteristically quiet for teens. The part of their doublespeak that said the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was PC. PC has been a sign of spring at sea for the last two years. PC is 9 years old now. Capt. John Heidemann and I watched him grow up. In fact, we were allowed to babysit him. His mom P dropped him off at the boat, went off to hunt hundreds of yards away, returned, picked him up and off they went! Obligingly, while she was gone, PC gave us precious footage of his game of Toss the Horsetail. Photo by ANN WEAVERTwig with a twig. Sticks little calf Twig mouths a horsetail toy as it waits for mom to return from a hunting trip. Its toy is visible in its mouth if you look closely.PC left home and became independent of P at the unheard-of age of 16 months. Thus, we are doubly pleased to see him. It means he continues to prosper amid the many dangers of the sea. In the bottlenose bull way, he threads through those dangers to find what he likes. When he finds it, he stays where it is. When he does not, he continues his search of the seas. We did not see PC in 2010 or 2011, and only glimpsed him briefly in the spring 2012 when he swung through to check out our local waters. He returned four months later after Thanksgiving. He must have found something he liked because he stayed through July 4, 2013. He left again save for one appearance. Thus, we have not seen this strapping young bull for six months. But he not only returned. He returned to the company of VC and Oyster. They must be friends, for they are ones he has appeared with in the past. The other part of the teen double-speak was that teens are still here. As the adults return in the spring, teens vanish or become more circumspect. In particular, teen bulls contra-indicate the more mature (more beat-up) bulls. Once we see those pairs of big bruisers in the backwaters (Ouch and Fishlips, Grin and Twin Dip, Ekard and Spry, Midface and Lax, Brick and Nose, N and Riptab, among others), we are unlikely to seeing teen bulls like Oyster or VC until the fall. In keeping with his early maturity, PC is not intimidated by these bruisers as other teen bulls are. A third sign that the dolphin spring is almost un-sprung was the milling mess of moms and kids Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver that we found the week before. The milling mess was fun and frustrating to watch. There were at least a dozen dolphins. They were a nursery group that included six calves. With all those kids, there was lots of action! The three wiggliest were born last year in 2013. This spring, they are entering the stimulating phase of dolphin development called Babys First Spring; more on these bracing activities later in the season! The little wigglies included our second youngest calf from 2013, Qs mysterious calf Qody. Qody is pronounced Cody but alphabetizes with mom Q in the database. I hope Q stays in Johns Pass so I can watch her raise Qody the way I watched her raise Qball. (No new word on Qballs injuries, reported last week in Dolphin Watch.) The three wiggly dolphins were poked and prodded and rolled by three older calves until the seas bubbled. But they did not stay. They had proverbially poked their heads into Johns Pass as if to see if they found whatever it is the dolphins come here to find. They did not find it, for they then returned to the mysterious locale from which they had come. This gives me another idea to check in the database. How often have dolphins appeared in early spring, not found what they were looking for and vanished until some later date? Is the pool still too cold? Oh yeah, one final clue that spring is almost un-sprung. Local bull Scrapefin ran into local bull DD2 the other day and vanished in short order. DD2 will not tolerate Scrapefin in his vicinity. Scrapefin knows it. Ahh, things seem to be nice and normal!Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Send her an email at annstats54@gmail.com or visit www.goodnaturedstatistics.com. NOAA advises anyone who sees a stranded dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico to call 877-942-5343 or 877-433-8299.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, April 17, 2014Ive been reading about the recent troubles college fraternities have gotten into because of two things: alcohol and hazing. Just when were convinced that all the customs of the world have changed, and that the old days and old ways are gone forever, we hear about dear old Alpha Gamma Ray or some other fraternity getting sued or thrown off campus because of killing one of its pledges by forcing him to drink a gallon of vodka within half an hour. As in days of yore, everyone throws up their hands and exclaims, How awful! How could this happen in our enlightened society? So lets think about that. For openers, start with the booze. Historians tell us that alcohol was invented about three seconds after the Big Bang occurred 13.8 billion years ago. (Im exaggerating, of course, but I often do this to make a point.) My point is that alcohol has been around ever since humans discovered (by accident or intent) how to make it. Since that time, alcohol has been part of life. One theory says man was a hunter/gatherer until he began growing crops that could be fermented or distilled. He soon learned that by tossing in some sugar and other ingredients and stirring the mix for a few weeks, he could produce a marvelous beverage. When swallowed, it gave him a whole new outlook on life. He shouted, No more hunting deer and groundhogs for me Im gonna be a farmer! Humans male and female, young and old have been enjoying and/or dying from alcohol ever since. Despite hundreds of years of medical research, no one has found exactly why most people drink in moderation (or not at all) while others become an alcoholic gradually or from their first sip. Alcoholism treatment has emerged from the dark ages, but the success rates of the various methods are open to question. Thats because alcoholism research is often a foggy field filled with unreliable subjects (active drunks) and the inability of the various experts to agree on just what alcoholism is. Its a mistake to think that alcohol and fraternities are automatically linked. Theyre not. Throughout our country we find fraternities (and their colleges) that have few regulations on alcohol use, while others have successfully clamped down on student drinking. But in America banning booze is a tricky endeavor (witness our nations 13-year disaster with the Prohibition Amendment). It has the same predictable success rate as banning sex or Big Macs. My own college prohibited alcohol for one year in the 1950s; the result was a farce. All in all, its unrealistic to expect college students (whether or not theyre members of a fraternity) or any other segment of the population to refrain from drinking. Even so, society is justified in trying to ban drunken driving, the serving of alcohol to minors and other abuses. Hazing is another ancient tradition that grabs headlines from time to time, at least when it results in injury or death to its victims, who are usually initiates or recruits. The experts arent sure where hazing started, but variations of it are found in organizations around the globe. To fully examine hazing is to risk losing ones belief in human decency. What in our souls can justify imposing rituals ranging from humiliation to sheer torture on our brothers and sisters to punish their unwitting crime of being outsiders who merely wish to come inside? I underwent mild (and non-alcoholic) hazing twice in my checkered history. The first occasion was when, as crew members on our ship reaching the equator en route to Korea in 1951, my fellow polliwogs (who had not previously crossed the equator) and I were subjected to disgusting but good-natured abuse by the shellbacks (sailors who had earlier experienced the tradition.) Other hazing came when I chose a fraternity. One night my pledge class was seated at tables on which the actives (upper-classmen) had placed small dishes of canned fruit topped with whipped cream, which was actually shaving cream. The actives took joy at watching the pledges gag as they swallowed the first mouthful. Otis, a senior bullyboy with whom I shared a mutual loathing, stood waiting for me to retch. But I fooled him. I calmly swallowed most of the fruit and shaving cream, to the amazement of the actives and the rage of my enemy Otis. It was one of the most satisfying incidents of my life. To my mind the truth about extreme hazing, wherever it occurs, is this: it is bullying, pure and simple. Beneath its surface almost always lurks sadism. But Im neither an expert nor a sadist. So forgive me if Im wrong.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.C. Fred Jones was always good for a great quote. I remember talking to the former Auburndale state legislator in the 1980s about the possibility of the Legislatures session having to be extended for a month. The shorter, the better, he said, because anytime the Legislature meets, your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are in danger. Still holds true. And when the Legislature meets, common sense goes on sabbatical. For instance, why are some of our state leaders hell bent on making voting more difficult and killing people easier? A bill sponsored by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, would allow people to conceal firearms without a permit during emergencies, including riots. Who came up with this idea? Yosemite Sam? We also checked in on Gov. Rick Scott to see what hes been up to lately. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? Scott said. Yes, sir. Many times. You have to be careful while youre walking in Tallahassee; its easy to trip on the puppet strings extending from special interests to lawmakers. Wouldnt be surprised if Senate President Don Gaetz will soon do a commercial for Budweiser based on his conversation recently with the Associated Press. The craft beer industry is trying to get the Legislature to approve the use of half-gallon growlers, but Gaetz told AP that he supports his friend, an Anheuser-Busch distributor in his district. We checked in with Gaetz. Mr. Gaetz, why are you opposed to loosening up regulations for the craft beer industry? Doesnt that go against the grain, so to speak, of the Republicans distaste for overregulation? This is the famous Budweiser beer, Gaetz said. We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood aging produces a taste, a smoothness and a drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price. Time shall tell whether Gaetz will fall off his high Clydesdale while tripping over puppet strings. Surprised that the craft beer bars havent put his face on their dartboards. They probably dont realize how easy it is to find his face. It can be downloaded at www.flsenate.gov/ Senators/s1. Oh-oh. Gov. Scott is calling again. Did I tell you were going to lower auto registration fees about $25? he said. Yes, sir. Thank you. The governor these days has been busy announcing new major road construction projects such as building an elevated expressway linking Interstate 275 and U.S. 19 in our area and widening the last four-lane section of Interstate 95. I didnt bother to ask him if he has given any further thought to funding high-speed rail or similar mass transit projects. If he ever got on board mass transit, to quote C. Fred Jones, Ill eat my hat at high noon in front of the county courthouse. And the county courthouse may be the only place were going to be able to drop off election ballots if some lawmakers keep toying with voting laws. Meanwhile, Gaetz is on the line again. Hello, senator. This Buds for you, Tom. Sir? Click. At the time of this writing, yet to be determined is whether the cowboys in the Legislature will pistol whip their colleagues in line to support the shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later-in-a-riot legislation. Summarizing what Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in the Tampa Bay Times, its the definition of insanity. Thank you, sheriff. Youre the canary in the coal mine. I long to see the day when Florida legislators put the interests of their constituents ahead of special interests, Yosemite Sam, Budweiser or whatever. But Im an ironclad doubting Thomas. If common sense ever takes precedence over special interests in Tallahassee, Ill eat my Florida Gator visor at high noon in front of a sellout FSU crowd at Doak Campbell Stadium and wash it down with a growler full of brew.

Tom Germond Common sense lacking in capitalCross your fingers using crosswalksEditor: How many pedestrians need to be killed on Gulf Boulevard before we stop the illusion that a pedestrian is safer in a crosswalk? North Redington Beach completed a $3.2 million project which included: to enhance safety to the existing Gulf Boulevard crosswalks changes will improve pedestrian safety, February 2014. The following month three pedestrians were killed trying to cross Gulf Boulevard, March 2014. The Department of Transportation concluded a seven-year study May 1, 2010, and reached this conclusion: to 1 ratio a pedestrian is more likely to have an accident inside versus outside crosswalk. Midblock crosswalks are dangerous (Franklin County Traffic Safety Board) advises four lane roads with 10,000 traffic or more mid-block crosswalks should not be considered even if a pedestrian safety median separates opposing traffic lanes. The North Redington Beach Gulf Boulevard traffic count is 14,551+/(Pinellas County records) All being mid-block crosswalks. North Redington Beach has more crosswalks per linear feet on Gulf Boulevard in .9 mile of a 13.5-mile segment of BIG-C beach towns stretching from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater. Beach Beacon article April 2 titled BIG-C focuses on pedestrian safety quoted Indiana man who died would probably be still alive had he checked for cars. I believe Jed Gettinger Indiana Man would probably be alive had there not been a mid-block crosswalk on Gulf Boulevard with a traffic count of 14,551 +/giving him a false sense of security he was safe in a crosswalk. Ive been crossing Gulf Boulevard for over a half century, never having one problem crossing the way my mother taught me: Look Both Ways. I cross at places where it seems safest. I trust myself to determine when and where its safe to cross: not a sign, flashing light, paint on the pavement or waving a yellow flag. I believe officials make the best decisions with the references they have at the time. Im here to offer some new references that will hopefully enable safer decisions for our community. Disagree? Then cross Gulf Boulevard using a crosswalk. My concern is you will not be around to offer rebuttal. My heart goes out to the families of Darrel Johnson, Patrick McClean and Jed Gettinger who lost their lives attempting to cross Gulf Boulevard safely. John Messmore North Redington BeachColumn on Affordable Care not correctEditor: We wife and I have lived in Harbor Bluffs/Belleair for 35 years. We have enjoyed the Belleair Bee for many years. I cannot remember the Bee having a nationally syndicated opinion writer in the past. I respectfully suggest that Debra Saunders does not enhance your publication one iota. Her recent piece on the Affordable Care Act is just plain not correct. I strongly suggest you reconsider the need for a national columnist. Alan E. James Jr. Belleair A few months ago I surrendered my Verizon 4G smart phone. It was an ostentatious instrument, capable of doing everything from reporting the exact time in Baruun-Urt, Mongolia, to broadcasting country music from Toad Suck, Ark. For two years my trusty Android robbed me of hours upon hours of time as I searched the Web for tasty treats like akutag, a frosty Arctic dessert made from seal or moose fat, to goodies from the Weird Food Club of New York City that includes scorpion with chili peppers, broiled snake, goose intestines, and brain soup. Ummm. Yummy! Then there was the probing of news sites from around the world, or listening to live stream radio stations from distant places like Fiji, Iceland, Fairbanks, and Tampa. (OK, so Tampa is not that far away.) I thrilled to the days of yesteryear on an old time radio app as the Lone Ranger galloped across the plains with his faithful companion, Tonto, or the creaking door as the Shadow emitted his bizarre guffaw. I had about 100 apps on my Android phone that included a pedometer, camera, heart rate monitor, maps, instructions, communications, games and even a nifty smell-oapp that allegedly spewed the fragrance of morning coffee, searing burgers on a grille, and even sensuous come-up-to-my-placesometime perfume. I never did get that one to work. Although people warned that smart phones are as addictive as recreational drugs at a meth clinic, I signed the contract that catapulted me into cyber space. Vanished were the days of watching the human entertainment at Walmart. I could watch the People of Walmart website instead. At night I remained secluded in a rear room punching the minuscule keyboard to chat with computer-generated friends I never met. I played Scrabble with a woman in Japan who created unrecognizable words like dapifer and sepulchral to beat me into submission. I exchanged messages with a farmer in a small North Dakota town who bragged about being able to start the family pick-up truck in 56 degrees below zero weather. AT&T developed the first wireless network in 1946, but the gizmo that combined a telephone and computer didnt come along until 1973. By the late 1990s the Palm Pilot and the Windows Pocket PC were gaining popularity. Early smart phones had limited functionality and, with the exception of Japan, were relatively unknown in most of the world. Then along came the BlackBerry, dubbed the CrackBerry, due to its addictive appeal. It reigned supreme until Apple and Android versions were introduced a few years later. Apple in 2007 ushered in the first iPhone that offered a touch screen to replace the diminutive stylus keyboard. The Googlebacked Android arrived two years later. The rest is history. The future holds many wonders such as folding phones sans batteries that will be powered by radio, television and cellular signals. Google Glass ... eyeglasses with built-in mini computers ... is being developed along with surgically implanted micro projectors that will beam touch screens on hard surfaces such as desks, tables and even public restroom walls. The technology will be available to the public within five years. The smart phones, numbered at approximately 500 million worldwide, also create environmental, social and other challenges. They contain toxic chemicals like arsenic and mercury. They are the prominent target of thieves and other villains. They cause innumerable motor vehicle accidents thanks to inattentive drivers who simply must check messages and websites while piloting 2 tons of steel down a highway at 65 mph. Then there are the security issues, too plentiful to mention here. People spend more time on their smart phones than interacting with friends, neighbors and relatives. I once saw a mother and young daughter at a tire store communicating with each other via smart phone ... while seated in the same waiting room! What it boils down to is that people dont talk anymore; they text or email or leave messages on Facebook and other social media sites. Kids fail to foster human relationships, and are clueless about the world beyond modern electronics. I enjoy not being held hostage by my Android smart phone. It now rests soundless in a desk drawer; its screen forever extinguished while I blissfully converse with people face to face and, for better or worse, remains somewhat ignorant of the frivolities in cyberspace. I now have an old-fashioned flip phone if someone needs to talk with me. And if I burrow around the attic long enough I can probably exhume my prehistoric Ma Bell black dial phone with a real ringer that graced my desk a million years ago. And who knows ... maybe I can invent a holster of sorts to carry it on my hip. I could actually launch a whole new fad!Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor.

In order to achieve Baby-Friendly status, the hospital continues to demonstrate its ability to offer breastfeeding mothers the information, support and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies. A maternity facility can be given Baby-Friendly status by meeting requirements set forth by the World Health Organization and continuing to follow the 10 Steps of Successful Breastfeeding including: helping all mothers initiate breastfeeding within one hour of birth, showing mothers how to breastfeed and maintain lactation even if they should be separated from their infants, giving newborn infants only breast milk unless medically indicated, practicing rooming-in by allowing mothers and infants to remain together 24 hours a day, and encouraging unrestricted breastfeeding on cue. Studies continue to demonstrate that there are many benefits to breastfeeding that extend well beyond the initial first days of life. With the philosophy, education and support in place, Morton Plant has increased the percentage of women successfully breastfeeding from 63 percent in 1991 to 85 percent in 2013.

Lustig, a theatre major, expects to graduate in 2015. Sittloh earns roster spotSEMINOLE Jennifer Sittloh of Seminole recently was named to the Zia softball roster at Eastern New Mexico University. ENMU is a NCAA Division II institution, affiliated with the Lone Star Conference.SPC to host Village Square programSEMINOLE The controversial issue of legalizing medical marijuana will be debated at the next Village Square program of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College. The program, Medical Marijuana: Is Florida Going to Pot?, will be presented Thursday, April 17, 6 to 8:15 p.m., in the conference center of the Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N., Seminole Advance reservations for this dinner event are required. Registration for Village Square members and educators is $25; for guests, $30, and for students, $20. To register, visit spcollege.edu /solutions and click on the Village Square tab. To register by mail, send checks to Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733. For information, call 3946251. The program is co-sponsored by the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU Television. With the Florida Supreme Courts 4-3 ruling Jan. 27 that a proposed amendment meets all legal requirements to go on the Nov. 4 ballot, the stage was set for a heated campaign on whether Florida should legalize use of marijuana for health reasons. A distinguished panel will debate the issue. Speaking for the amendment will be Ben Pollara, campaign manager for United For Care, the organization behind the initiative petition campaign. Speaking against will be Carlton E. Turner, former assistant to the president and director of the White House Drug Abuse Policy Office the Drug Czar under President Ronald Reagan.Presenting the point of view of law enforcement will be Bob Gualtieri, sheriff of Pinellas County.The moderator will be Craig Kopp, news anchor and host of All Things Considered on WUSF NPR Radio. The proposed amendment, if approved by 60 percent of voters, would permit Florida doctors to approve use of marijuana by individuals with debilitating diseases for which benefits would outweigh risk. The most commonly cited conditions are cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, ALS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons Disease, Alzheimers and Crohns Disease. Opponents say that the ballot phrase as determined by a licensed Florida physician leaves the door open to certifying use of marijuana for almost any ailment or complaint. The Village Square is a forum for nonpartisan debate of key state and national issues that operates under the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Institute serves as a resource for academic enrichment, a nonpartisan venue for civil debate and civic engagement. Eckerd Review set to launchST. PETERSBURG Edgar Award winner Lori Roy will appear at the Eckerd College Reading and Art Party to help unveil the 2014 edition of Eckerd Review on Monday, May 5, 5:30 p.m., in Cobb Gallery on campus, 4200 54th Ave. S. The event is free and open to the public. Roy won the 2012 Edgar Award for best first novel, and her second book, Until She Comes Home, is nominated for best novel this year. She attributes much of her success to her four-time attendance at the annual Eckerd College Writers Conference: Writers in Paradise, co-founded and co-directed by Professor of Literature and Creative Writing Emeritus Sterling Watson and Dennis Lehane, a 1988 graduate of Eckerds Creative Writing program and last years Edgar Award winner for best novel. An interview of Roy is included in Eckerd Review 2014, a journal of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and art created by members of the Eckerd community and published by students. During the Reading and Art Party, Roy will participate in a Q&A session covering parts of that interview. The event also will feature readings from other works in the Review, including poems by St. Petersburg Poet Laureate Peter Meinke and Eckerd College President Donald Eastman. Visual art from the 2014 Review will be displayed in Cobb Gallery May 5-9 and celebrated at the party.

Multi-platinum recording artist Air Supply will perform in concert in the intimate Capitol Theatre. Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met in 1975 in Sydney, Australia, where they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles, and of course, singing. They made a demo of two songs, Love and Other Bruises and If You Knew Me and took it to every record company in Sydney. Everyone turned it down but one, CBS Records, who admired their unique style. Their first single shot to No. 1 on the national charts and that same year they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the United States and Canada. Returning home, they made an album, Life Support, which included Lost in Love, that went to the Top 10 in Australia and somehow found its way to music industry executive Clive Davis in New York. Davis immediately signed Air Supply to Arista Records and in 1980, Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Their second single, All Out of Love, went to the top of the charts even quicker. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles run of consecutive top five singles. The albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies.

PETERSBURG The birth of photography turned the camera into a notebook of history especially when it came to battlefields and those in uniform. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is bringing that notebook of American military history to St. Petersburg with the opening of The American Soldier A Photographic Tribute. The exhibit opened March 18 and will run through July 13. The American Soldier is a dramatic exhibition of 116 wall-to-wall photographs capturing the essence of American soldiering for more than 150 years. The exhibition guides visitors through the Civil War, Spanish American War, Boxer Rebellion, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Afghanistan, and the streets of Baghdad. The exhibition captures the emotions of danger, frustration, humor, camaraderie, death and victory that American soldiers encountered in this odyssey through history. Arriving from the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum in Texas, space for the exhibit was an initial challenge, but the museum underwent interior renovations adding exhibit space to accommodate The American Soldier and enhance the guest experience. The arrival of this amazing exhibit is a major coup for St. Petersburg and the Museum of History, said Rui Farias in a press release. Farias is executive director at the museum. It compelled us to be creative and in the process, the redesign and remodeling of our interior exhibit space is energetic and inviting. This exhibit gives the Museum of History the opportunity to re-create itself as a cultural center. Our goal is to use art, photographs and artifacts to teach history. Cyma Rubin is the curator and producer of The American Soldier, as well as the curator of the highly successful exhibition, Capture the Moment The Pulitzer Prize Photographs. The St. Petersburg Museum of History is at 335 Second Ave. NE. Museum hours for the exhibit are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.Venue Theatre hosts salePINELLAS PARK Venue Theatre, at 9125 U.S. 19 N., Pinellas Park, is having a spring cleaning sale through April 26.

Summer movie lineupTop 10 most anticipated summer flicks and five potential sleepers scheduled to hit the big screen By LEE CLARK ZUMPEJudging by the box office numbers being generated by Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it almost seems like the summer movie season is already underway. Of course, it isnt and, according to the Gregorian calendar, the first day of summer falls on June 21. But Hollywood doesnt pay much attention to such pesky details. As far as the film studios are concerned, the drive to fill theaters by hyping an endless parade of potential blockbusters marks the start of summer. That procession generally commences in early May although it seems to be arriving earlier and earlier each year. Last summers blockbuster lineup kicked off with Iron Man 3, which followed the previous summers box office champion, Marvels The Avengers. Iron Man 3 grossed $1.2 billion worldwide last year. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is Marvel Studios first big hit of the year, bringing in plenty of revenue since its release earlier this month. As of this past weekend, the film had grossed about $477 million worldwide. The summer movie lineup features many more superheroes hoping to cash in on the comicbook-to-big-screen bandwagon. Its likely one or more will be this years top-earning blockbuster. But what is a blockbuster? Websters defines the term as something notably expensive, effective, successful, large or extravagant. The 1975 film Jaws ushered in the era of the summer blockbuster. Movie studios adopted a marketing strategy focusing on the release of at least one supergrossing flick no later than July 4. Early examples of summer blockbusters include Star Wars, released May 25, 1977; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, released June 4, 1982; Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, released May 23, 1984; and Batman, released June 23, 1989. Each of these films had exceptional opening weekend revenues. Following is a list of this years 10 most anticipated summer blockbusters. Only time will tell which ones will go on to become spectacular Hollywood cash cows and which ones will turn out to be box office bombs.No. 1 X-Men: Days of Future PastRelease date: May 23 Cast: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Halley Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Boo Boo Stewart, Adan Canto, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Evan Jonigkeit Those lovable mutants are back in this adaptation of the Uncanny X-Men storyline Days of Future Past by Chris Claremont and John Byrne. An ensemble of XMen members work to prevent a war that will lead to a dystopian future and possibly the extinction of their kind. The film is unique in that it is a sequel to both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class and features cast members from both incarnations of the franchise.No. 2 The Amazing Spider-Man 2Release date: May 2 Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field and B.J. Novak The web-slinger is back with more Peter Parker angst. Just as Parker is getting comfortable playing the hero, he is forced to face formidable villains in this electrifying sequel. Thats right: Electro is in town and Spider-Man is about to realize that all his enemies seem to have one thing in common: Oscorp.No. 3 GodzillaRelease date: May 16 Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston In the immortal words of Blue Oyster Cult: Oh, no, there goes Tokyo go, go Godzilla.Its not even worth guessing how many Godzilla movies have been made since the original 1954 classic. The most recent American adaptation hit the screen in 1998 and starred Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno. Although it earned a significant amount of derision, it still did well at the box office.Now, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures are ready to resurrect the monster for another generation and in the insanely popular and nearly Oscar-worthy trailers, actor Bryan Cranston best known for portraying Walter White in Breaking Bad vehemently sounds the alarm. This one could be epic.No. 4 MaleficentRelease date: May 30 Cast: Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Photo courtesy of UNIVERSAL PICTURESScarlett Johansson stars in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Lesley Manville Disney has taken the iconic villainess from its classic 1959 animated film Sleeping Beauty and crafted her story into a dark fantasy. Audiences will learn how betrayal led to Maleficents malevolent mischief.No. 5 Transformers 4: Age of ExtinctionRelease date: June 27 Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver Michael Bay apparently doesnt have anything else to work on, so, why not crank out another Transformers film. This will be the fourth installment in the franchise and someone must have realized it was time to shake things up a bit. This one features a new cast Shia LaBeouf is out, Mark Wahlberg is in and, for the first time in Bays ongoing series, the Autobots and Decepticons are joined by Dinobots. This obviously begs the question: How long before Hollywood decides to pit kaiju against Dinobots? No. 6 Dawn of the Planet of the ApesRelease date: July 11 Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi SmitMcPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer The sequel to 2011s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set about a decade after the events of the first film and after an epidemic has decimated humankind. The survivors find themselves facing a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar. In this sci-fi survival-of-the-fittest scenario, war between ape and man seems unavoidable.No. 7 Jupiter AscendingRelease date: July 18 Cast: Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James DArcy and Tim Pigott-Smith In this sci-fi action adventure film, Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a housecleaner plagued by a lifetime of bad breaks. Then one day Caine played by Channing Tatum shows up and Jupiter discovers that her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.No. 8 Guardians of the GalaxyRelease date: Aug. 1 Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro With Fantastic Four and The XMen tied up at Twentieth Century Fox, Marvel Studios has decided its next big push in the unfolding Marvel Cinematic Universe will be a lesser-known property: Guardians of the Galaxy. While one doesnt need to be a comic book aficionado to name at least a few members of The Avengers, it is unlikely that the average person could cough up the names of this ragtag bunch: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. There are a few others, but so far, these folks seem to be the only ones who will make it to the big screen for this installment unless Adam Warlock shows up in a cameo. To become a blockbuster, this film has to appeal to more than Marvels core fan base. Early trailers have emphasized both the science fiction and humor components of the story. It wouldnt be a surprise if Marvel Studios tossed in a few surprise appearances by one or two of their hottest properties. Robert Downey Jr. isnt that busy, after all. See SUMMER MOVIES, page 8B

No. 9 LucyRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. The trailers for this film look spectacular, although the story premise seems awfully similar to 2011s thriller Limitless. No. 10 Into the StormRelease date: Aug. 8 Cast: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep and Scott Lawrence Disaster movie genre, meet found footage genre. In Into the Storm, professional storm chasers and not-so-smart thrill-seekers eager to get the perfect picture of a tornado capture the destruction of the town of Silverton during a really bad weather day. Those who adored Twister will likely find this glimpse at Mother Natures dark side appealing. But wait theres more Every summer, there are a few surprise hits films that might not quite reach blockbuster status, but that outperform expectations and earn far more than they cost to produce. These sleeper hits are often first screened in limited release, distributed to select art house theaters and shown at festivals. Sometimes, due simply to word-of-mouth not to mention social media these films end up expanding into mainstream movie theaters. They offer a welcome alternative to Hollywoods cookie-cutter formula blockbusters. Here are a handful of films that might qualify as this years sleeper hits.No. 5 Blood GlacierLimited release: May 2 Cast: Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Brigitte Kren, Hiller Beseler and Peter Knaack This one promises to evoke classic creature features. An ecological horror film, the story follows Janek, a technician on a climate observation station high up in the German Alps. He discovers a strange red liquid pouring from a nearby glacier. When substance comes in contact with the local wildlife, it causes changes that are at first curious, then horrifying.No. 4 The SignalLimited release: June 13 Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp and Laurence Fishburne Three college students on a road trip across the Southwest experience a detour and that kind of thing rarely leads to anything good, does it? Nick and Jonah are MIT freshmen with a passion for hacking. While driving cross-country through Nevada with Nicks girlfriend, Hailey, they follow clues left by a rival hacker named Nomad, which leads them to an eerily isolated area. After a terrifying confrontation with Nomad, the group regains consciousness in captivity and Nick finds he is in a waking nightmare.No. 3 I OriginsLimited release: July 18 Cast: Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Bergs-Frisbey, Steven Yeun and Archie Panjabi I Origins follows a molecular biologist whose study of the human eye points to evidence with far reaching implications about our scientific and spiritual beliefs.No. 2 A Most Wanted ManLimited release: July 25 Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe and Daniel Brhl A Most Wanted Man is based on master story-teller John le Carrs worldwide bestselling book. In Hamburg, Germany, a mysterious, tortured and near-dead half-Chechen, half-Russian man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in the citys Islamic community desperate for help and looking to recover his late Russian fathers ill-gotten fortune. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Willem Dafoe) and a young female lawyer (Rachel McAdams) who is determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. A Most Wanted Man promises a cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.No. 1 The Green InfernoRelease date: Sept. 5 Cast: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss Blanton At the very end of summer comes Eli Roths The Green Inferno, a cannibal horror thriller. In Roths terrifying new film The Green Inferno, a group of college students take their humanitarian protest from New York to the Amazon jungle only to get kidnapped by the native tribe they came to save. Problem: It happens to be a tribe that still practices the ancient tribal rite of cannibalism and they have a healthy appetite for intruders. Maybe it wont be a blockbuster but its sure to become a cult classic. For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.
