VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenFlorida leads the way in Medicare fraud prosecutions. Page 13A. Photos by TAMMY CAPITANIA team of volunteers from Bauder Elementary School and Seminole Home Depot built a backyard play set as a surprise for 10-year-old Joshua Steijger, a Bauder student who is battling cancer. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Third-grader Joshua Steijger has always loved playing on the swings. Trips to Largos Central Park playground rank high among the 10-year-olds favorite pastimes. Some days it even rivals his love of wrestling and WWE star John Cena. But the trips to the park have stopped since Joshua began chemotherapy in December. In November, doctors discovered a tumor on an optical nerve. They began treatment within weeks, before the holidays were even over, in hopes of shrinking the mass and saving his vision. Though the rocking sensation of the swings soothes him when he isnt feeling well, the drive to the park, and crowds of children can be overwhelming for him, said his grandmother and legal guardian Maria Vanderham. So last month a team of volunteers from Bauder Elementary School, where Joshua goes to school, reached out to local businesses for donations to build him his own backyard play set with swings, monkey bars, a slide and a sandbox. Its hard when hes on the playground and doesnt feel well, Vanderham said. But the swinging calms him. Now he can go right out the back door. If its hot out when hes playing and he feels sick, he can just run inside.

Bob Evans Hearing 393-3775IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR HEARING DURING BETTER HEARING MONTH. LaSala firedCounty Commission terminates administrators contract By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The first clue that something was awry came from media reports about less-than-satisfactory results of an annual performance review. Then Commission Chair Karen Seel removed the review of the Pinellas Countys administrator from the April 15 meeting agenda and later replaced it. The first item of business at that meeting was unanimous approval of Bob LaSalas termination. Commissioner Norm Roche was not present for the vote. Seel began by asking if a commissioner would make a motion to terminate LaSalas contract without cause. She said the contract called for a 90-day notice provision. She said during those 90 days, LaSala would report to her or her designee for assigned duties. Commissioner Ken Welch made the motion. Commissioner Janet Long seconded it. Welch thanked LaSala for his service. But I think this is an appropriate step forward, he said. It is with mixed emotions I leave my position as Pinellas County Administrator, LaSala said after the vote. Please know that it has been an honor to serve this community. He thanked the commission for recognition of my financial management acumen, and I am particularly gratified that I leave Pinellas County in far better economic condition than when I arrived, he said. As you know, I am not one to shy away from our biggest, most important community issues, he continued. And while I believe we have made progress on the very tough issues related to emergency medical services and health and community services, I recognize that those incremental accomplishments have not been without controversy. That said, they are incredibly important matters to our community, and I wish you all the success in resolving them and moving forward positively as I hand the baton to your next leader. Of course, I will always be available to help you in any way I can.Hired during a time of controversyPerhaps the most-respected administrator in the countys recent history passed the baton to LaSala in 2008. Fred Marquis served Pinellas County as its administrator from 1979 to 2000. He returned in an interim capacity in 2007 after former administrator Steve Spratt resigned in the aftermath of a grand jury investigation of a land deal between former property appraiser Jim Smith and the county. Marquis strongly endorsed LaSala for the job, in part due to his prior experience. LaSala worked as the countys chief assistant administrator and assistant administrator from 1979 to 1989. He returned to Pinellas from California, where he managed cities for 10 years. He now has served counties and cities for more than 40 years, including more than 23 years in Florida. His governmental career started in New York and New Jersey. During a meeting on Sept. 9, 2008, when the commission approved his initial contract, he vowed to provide a proactive commitment to professional management. Being a good leader means you have to have followers, LaSala said. At the time, Seel asked him to describe what he thought were some of the countys opportunities for improvement. I believe you dont have to be sick to get better, LaSala said. He said while Pinellas was pretty healthy, that condition would be tested in the coming months in terms of resources. He said some of the continuing challenges would be setting priorities for services and the ability to respond to changes. My job for the next few months will be to do a lot of listening, he said. After only two months on the job, LaSala told members of the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake that the county would be faced with major decisions about its EMS system and budget. He was right. In the end, one of those issues garnered him praise, the second, the EMS controversy, may have helped cost him his job.Falling review scoresIn 2012, LaSala received a composite score of almost 81 percent on his annual review. His high score was for preparation and administering of the budget, 3.64 out of 4. His next highest grades were for integrity, getting 3.5 for his overall integrity and 3.57 for his personal integrity. His low score was 2.71 for facilitative leadership and facilitating county board effectiveness. In 2013, his composite score was down to 74 percent, representing the highs and lows in seven categories. His high score was for organization, planning and management with an average rating of 3.29 out of 3.5. He scored 3.25 for strategic leadership, 3.17 for integrity, 3.02 for service delivery management, 2.83 for responsiveness, 2.70 for communication. His lowest score, 2.52, was for policy facilitation.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala makes a statement April 15 after the commission unanimously voted to terminate him. See LASALA, page 7A The Ave Maria Guild of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church held an Easter parade at their parish center on April 9 to benefit the school.

Easter bonnetsSPC forum takes on transit By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE On Nov. 4, registered voters throughout Pinellas will go to the polls to decide on a change in funding for local transportation. Supporters say the additional funding from a 1 percent sales tax compared to the amount available through ad valorem taxes is necessary to improve transportation to provide sustainable economic growth into the future. Opponents say the current funding method would be sufficient with better use of the money. On April 3, the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College, based on the Seminole campus, hosted a two-hour public forum Dealing with Gridlock: Is There a Light Rail in Pinellas Countys Future? Representatives from both sides were invited to present their case. SPC Seminole Provost James Olliver moderated the event inside the colleges Digitorium. Don Ewing, co-chair of Yes for Greenlight, provided information in support of the Greenlight Pinellas initiative. Barbara Haselden, campaign manager and spokesperson for No Tax for Tracks, presented information for the opposition. SPC plans to use the forum process to cover all the referendums on the November ballot to provide the public an objective and nonpartisan view, Olliver said. A test of the forums ability to help the public make up its mind was used for the first time ever that Thursday night when instant polling via cellphone texting was introduced to the audience. This is probably the first time youve been in an auditorium and you have been told to keep the cell phone on, said David Klement, executive director of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions.

Before the presentations, 24 people indicated support for Greenlight Pinellas, 11 were against and five were undecided. After, 30 people were in favor, 21 against and only two undecided.In support of GreenlightEach speaker was given 15 minutes to make his or her case. Ewing went first. He took the audience back to the mid-1960s when Disney began its plans to build the City of Tomorrow in Orlando. The goal was to create a pedestrian-friendly and car-free environment. He said while Greenlight Pinellas wasnt intended to turn the county into a Disneyworld, the plan did include the idea of providing walkable communities with improved transit and reduced use of vehicles. Projections show, without change, Pinellas future is one of more congestion on local roads and longer commute times. Ewing said continual widening of existing roads is getting more difficult due to lack of space and safety concerns. That cant be our only approach, he said. He advocates Greenlight Pinellas with plans for improved bus service and a future light rail system, running for Clearwater to St. Petersburg with the potential for a connection to Tampa and points beyond to provide regional connectivity. Supporters of Greenlight say it is more than just light rail. They say that better transportation system will create jobs and encourage economic development, enhance quality of life, as well as support the environment. Adding nighttime hours to the bus schedule will allow workers on the late shift to use public transit to get home something they cant do now. Students taking classes at SPCs different campuses will find it easier to use the bus system with decreased wait times of 15 minutes at stops. Tourists will be able to get from the airport to the beach using public transportation. He encouraged the public to visit pinellasontrack.com for complete information. Its a real life look at what enhanced bus service and rail can do, he said. Ewing said the plan years in the making was well vetted and had been analyzed by two third party experts Ernst and Young, financial auditors, and HTNB, a national engineering and transportation consulting firm. He explained the different routes that make up a variety of proposed enhanced bus services, running throughout the county. Light rail doesnt appear for 10 years, he said; however, the route is already mapped out. The majority of rail lines are on public land, meaning fewer problems with right of way. Once the Greenlight Pinellas plan is complete, 80 percent of the population will live within 1/4 mile of a bus rapid transit station and 86 percent will work within 1/4 mile of a station, he said. Greenlight Pinellas plan relies on an increased level of funding that would come from a 1 percent sales tax as opposed to collection of ad valorem taxes. Ewing said for some, taxes would go down. For example, a taxpayer of an owner-occupied home with a median value of $161,600 would pay $81.52 less with a sales tax, per estimates from IRS studies. He pointed out that the sales tax would not be levied on groceries or medical items and would be limited to the first $5,000 of any purchase. He said a person could buy a car for $20,000 and not pay more than $50 in transit tax. He added that tourists were expected to pay about 1/3 of the tax money generated. He said if the tax were approved, an oversight committee of citizens would monitor how the money is spent, as would County Commissioners. He said Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority the receiver of the proposed transit tax money was fiscally responsible, receiving consistently clean audits of its finances. He urged the public to vote yes for Greenlight.Against GreenlightHaselden then presented the case against Greenlight. She pointed out that it cost a family of four about $100 a day to go to Disney. She said if they stayed at a hotel there, ate at the restaurants and paid other expenses, the cost would be $4,500 to $5,000 an amount not affordable for everyone. Disney was an entrepreneur and a private business, she said. She told the audience that public transportation was stagnant. She showed a chart that showed 50 percent of the U.S. used public transportation post World War II. Since then, the number has dropped to 2 percent. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 1.6 percent use public transportation in Pinellas. Her source was Heritage Foundation: Public Transit: A Bad Product at a Bad Price. She showed a photo of a new PSTA bus that she said cost $650,000. Currently there are 200 in the PSTA fleet, she said, with plans for more. She argued that PSTA doesnt pay for itself, and said about 75 percent of its operations were subsidized. About 22 percent of PSTAs $63 million operating budget comes from federal or state grants, another 22 percent from passenger fares and about 53 percent from ad valorem taxes. The capital budget includes another $28 million. Haselden said her numbers come from PSTA. She said it costs about $7 a ride with riders paying an average of 91 cents, meaning in total PSTA is subsidized by 87 percent. She showed a chart of the countys property values and pointed to the decrease after 2007 when the recession hit. She said the amount of money PSTA collected dropped from $38 million to $26 million due to the decline in property values. She said a check of past years budgets shows the agency spending money in 2002 and continuing to spend until 2007 when it began to slow down. Budget cuts followed including staff layoffs. Then, the agency raised its millage rate, and spending increased again, including hiring of staff, Haselden said. They outspend their income, she said. She talked about a statement made by PSTA CEO Brad Miller, who said if no new sustainable funding source is found, PSTA would have to cut 30 percent in 2016. PSTA is at a crossroads, she said. She talked about the negative aspects of light rail, including the difference between high-speed and light rail, which causes congestion at intersections. She is opposed to increasing the sales tax from 7 percent to 8 percent. PSTA currently receives $32 million from ad valorem taxes and would receive $148 million from a 1 percent sales tax, she said. She objects to Greenlight supporters calling it a tax swap. She said unless it was revenue neutral it was no swap. She said if an additional 1 percent sales tax was approved, Pinellas would have the highest in the state, which cannot be good for business. She said with more potential revenue, PSTA could increase its credit limit and debt to the taxpayer. She talked about false premises and claims by Greenlight that there would be more than 200,000 new people in Pinellas by 2040. Thats not true, she said. The population is not growing. She disputed claims of record ridership being touted almost every month by PSTA. She said the numbers are inflated by how they count rides. She gave an example of a single trip with multiple bus transfers. She said each time a passenger boards a bus, it is counted as a ride, so a single person taking the bus to the mall could be counted as six rides. The (ridership) numbers havent changed in eight years, she said. She talked about empty buses and buses running with only two to three people. She said PSTA paid $700,000 for a study that showed the top five routes were so busy they were almost dangerous and other routes not performing. She said the entire Greenlight Plan was just a promise. There is no guarantee in writing, she said. She said people dont want to give up roadway lanes to dedicated use by light rail or buses. She showed a chart of costs and fares for several metro areas using light rail, pointing out that none of them came close to breaking even. In Pinellas, theres just no need, she said. U.S. 19 is almost finished. I-275 corridor is going to connect to U.S. 19. The roadway will have no stoplights, she said. Haselden believes public transportation should be bid out to the private sector if PSTA cant provide safe reliable service to 1.6 percent of our neighbors, for those who want a ride that doesnt take all day to get to their destination. She pointed out that PSTA would continue to receive grant money and fare money on top of the projected increase from the sales tax a considerable increase in overall funding.Questions and answersThe presenters also fielded questions from the audience. One led to a lengthy discussion on population density. The biggest problem is that we dont have the density needed (for rail), Haselden said. You go from a low density area to another low density area. She compared Pinellas Countys population to that of New York City, which has enough people to support enhanced systems. She also said light rail wasnt needed to stimulate the economy, she said it could be done using Bus Rapid Transit. Ewing disputed the statement that the proposed light rail route connects two low-density areas, stating that Pinellas County has the highest density of any county in the state. He said the rail line would travel between the countys two most dense areas, traveling through Pinellas Park and Largo on its way. Over time, this will force people to live around rail lines and in high rises increasing density narrowing our territory, Haselden said. Were used to a large territory. Another question led to a discussion on economic development. Ewing said the 16 rail stations would be located away from current developed areas onto land not currently developed, which would be good for the local economy. Haselden said the Federal Transit Administration described development around rail lines as redistributed growth, not new growth. She gave the example of the effect malls had on downtown areas in the recent past. This will drive people to shop near rail lines, she said. One man, who identified himself as a veteran, asked if the steel for the tracks, trains and other components would come from America or overseas. Brad Miller, PSTA CEO, said federal law requires it all to be made in America. Ewing answered anothers concern by saying Greenlight Pinellas would provide options and alternatives. Some would use (public transportation) every day and some on occasion, he said. He gave an example of a trip to the airport, thus saving money on parking. Its about getting people off the roads to not have to expand the roads, he said. We can only expand the roads a certain amount. Were running out of land. We need to educate people that they can do something else. Haselden said it was more important to work on the roads. Ninety-eight percent of us use the roads, she said. FORUM, from page 1A Seminole resident Emma Mattes travelled to Washington, D.C., to meet with Rep. David Jolly on April 9, Advocacy Day. Mattes, an advocate for the Dystonia Advocacy Network, as a form of Dystonia called Spasmodic Dysphonia, which affects her vocal cords. Shes been working with the organization for five years. In the past, shes gone to D.C. to meet with Congressman C.W. Bill Young and always received a warm welcome and much needed support for my cause, she said. Representative Jolly offered me the same warm welcome and support which was very inspiring to me and my fellow advocates.Advocacy Day AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3A Local student named Horatio Alger ScholarSEMINOLE Jamal Waked, 18, of Seminole was one of only three high school students in the state of Florida, and one of only 105 students in the country to be named among the 2014 Horatio Alger National Scholars. Waked and his fellow 2014 national scholars were invited to participate in a four-day weekend of activities, roundtables and special sessions in Washington, D.C., April 3-6. The students also received their honors and had an opportunity to meet such leading individuals as Justice Clarence Thomas, entrepreneur and business visionary Sir Richard Branson, and actor Tom Selleck. Since 1984, Horatio Alger Association Members and Friends have been funding need-based college scholarships to support deserving young people to overcome their adversity and pursue their dreams through higher education. So far the Association has awarded $100 million to approximately 20,000 students. Waked, born in Panama, relocated to the United States when he was 4. Hes a member of the 2014 graduating class of St. Petersburg High School. Hell be attending the University of Florida in Gainesville in the fall to pursue a career in engineering and the sciences. Photo courtesy of ROSALIE HAGELJamal Waked, right, was one of 105 students to be named a 2014 Horatio Alger National Scholar. While in Washington, D.C., accepting his honor, he met actor Tom Selleck. STUDENT, from page 1Aoffice clerk, and Cheron Panakhyo, Joshuas teacher, organized the project. Capitani served as the community liaison for the project and reached out to area businesses for assistance. Seminole Home Depot donated most of the building materials; West Coast Fence Corporation and PlayNation of Tampa provided additional swing parts. Home Depot also sent over a team of volunteers to help build the playset, and lunch was donated by Mikes Pizza of Largo. The swingset was a complete surprise for Joshua, who arrived home just as finishing touches were being made to the structure. His reaction was priceless, Capitani said. The glowing smile, large eyes and the outburst of such joy when he asked, Is that for me? Joshua was in such awe What joy to be able to help make the life of a child with such unfortunate circumstances more enjoyable. Life hasnt been easy for Joshua or his siblings, said Vanderham. Their parents arent in the picture. So in addition to caring for Joshua since November, she has also adopted his younger brother, Jordan Steijger, 4. Their sisters, 9-year-old twins, live with their maternal grandmother. But Joshuas had it the worst, Vanderham said. The child has been through heck ever since he was born. Hes hopped from home to home for years between Vanderhams house, his parents and foster care, where he was sometimes mistreated because of his developmental disabilities. He also has neurofibromatosis type I, a lifelong tumor disorder caused by a genetic mutation. It causes tumors to grow throughout the body, she said, and also can result in learning disabilities and vision disorders. The tumors are only worrisome if they affect the nervous system, she said, like this most recent mass growing on an optical nerve. Joshua has already lost sight in his right eye. Shes hoping the chemo will be able to save his vision in his left one. An MRI after the first round of treatments he has a year-and-a-half of chemotherapy sessions ahead of him shows the tumor has shrunk a bit, she said. Shes grateful to Bauder for all of its support throughout his treatment. The school has done a lot for him, she said, or for us, I should say. Vanderham also plans to sign Joshua up for the Childrens Dream Fund. It might be nice to take him to Disney, she said. We went to the zoo recently and they had rides there, and that was all he wanted to do. She added, I just want to do something nice for him. I feel awful. These children havent had anything. Nothing. No company. No parents. Nothing. Its awful. Photo by TIFFANY RAZZANOJoshua Steijger, 10, right, plays on the swingset with his 4-year-old brother, Jordan. The swinging motion calms Joshua when he isnt feeling well.

What It Is and Why You Should Care Largo, FL. Based on the Unclaimed Property Laws in Florida, your stocks, bonds, mutual fund accounts, bank accounts, as well as physical property stored in safe deposit boxes are subject to Escheatment (transfer of property to the state). Thousands of Floridians may be negatively impacted by this aggressive, unwarranted, medieval law and your personal property could be transferred to the states Unclaimed Property Division in accordance with applicable abandoned property laws. To make matters worse, seized assets are required to be liquidated and proceeds are deposited into the State School Fund until the owner comes forward to claim them. Imagine the unintended tax consequences and irreparable damage this would cause. Our greedy politicians will stop at nothing to collect new revenue for the state, and they feel no guilt whatsoever for their behavior.

The county signed an interlocal agreement with the Barrier Islands Government Council on July 10, 2012 for Penny for Pinellas funding to pay for undergrounding of utilities, streetscape enhancements and pedestrian safety improvements. Plans called for creating a uniform corridor for all 11 beach communities through common amenities and streetscaping. The project focuses on elimination of visual blight caused by overhead utilities, development of an attractive roadway experience to encourage tourism and economic development, and pedestrian safety improvements. Unfortunately, it has taken an awful long time, Cretekos said. We started talking about this in 2000 14 years ago. In 2007, officials found that initial plans approved in 2001 were not feasible, he said. They werent economically possible, so they had to be changed. The project also was delayed due to the economic downturn that resulted in less money coming in to the Penny for Pinellas fund. Finally, in 2012, all parties agreed to a new funding formula that split $35 million between the municipalities over time. The money would be doled out at $3.5 million a year during fiscal years 2013 to 2016. Additional money would be allocated at a rate of $7 million a year during fiscal years 2017 to 2019. Shares would be determined by how much area each city has of Gulf Boulevard frontage. The BIG-C was given the responsibility for determining if a project is eligible for funding and verifying that the work was done as approved. The cities are responsible for project design, implementation and ongoing maintenance. Cities can apply for reimbursement of costs up to the amount of their share for work done after March 13, 2007. Cretekos is the current BIGC president. Simons heads up the BIG-C committee in charge of project approvals. Cretekos said some of the smaller cities are waiting to begin projects until the amount of their share grows to a larger sum. Small communities with low budgets dont have the money to pay for projects and then apply for reimbursements, he said. Plans are for them to accumulate enough money to do the work. He showed several slides of work done since money became available. He said Clearwater had been reimbursed $6.7 million for work done on its Beach Walk project on Clearwater Beach. Indian Shores received $4 million to help pay for a new city hall, bike lanes and moving of utility poles along Gulf Boulevard. The city installed a new bus shelter and new aesthetically pleasing trashcan covers were added. Redington Beach also used beautification money to pay for moving utility lines underground. Simons assured commissioners that all $35 million would be spent according to approved project plans. He estimated that more substantial projects would begin in year four of the allocations. Smaller communities cant wait for reimbursements, they dont have the money, he said, echoing Cretekos earlier statements. He said Treasure Island was in the planning stage for a $3 million project that the city would fund and then request reimbursement. Commissioner John Morroni brought up the subject of recent pedestrian deaths along Gulf Boulevard. He wanted assurances that projects were focusing on pedestrian safety. The mayors asked if it were possible to allocate additional money sooner than scheduled. We would appreciate it, Cretekos said. It doesnt hurt to ask, said Commissioner Ken Welch.

At that time, the piece will remain nameless, but it will not be untitled. A contest is being held to name the sculpture, with the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation offering prizes of a one-night stay at the DoubleTree Beach Resort in North Redington Beach and a one-year Garden Family membership to the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation to the person whose title is chosen. Suggestions must be submitted by Friday, May 9. Recommended names should be emailed to flbgfoundation@gmail.com. Submissions must include the proposed title of the piece and the full name, phone number and email address of the entrant. The sculpture was borne of a love for the gardens and a vision of elevating the gardens experience with artwork. Former Foundation president Chuck Scaffidi conceived the idea of featuring a stunning piece of art in the small pond outside of the Wedding Garden. More than two years ago, he started working with the Foundations Art-in-the-Garden committee chair Melinda Vargas and board member Erhan Ozey. He and Vargas went on a quest to find the appropriate artist and design and a call-toartists resulted in the appointment of local artists Owen Pach and Jonathan Schork. The artists will be present as the sculpture is dedicated to Scaffidi at the Foundations Diggin the Arts at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 4. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Florida Botanical Gardens and is free to the public. This event brings a wide variety of museums and cultural organizations to the gardens for a fun day of art projects, Plein air competition and an instrument petting zoo.

And he marked needs attention to satisfactory on LaSalas mediation and negotiation skills. The rest of his evaluation showed good to excellent scores. Commissioner Susan Latvala gave LaSala good or excellent scores in nearly every category. Commissioner John Morroni was the only commissioner to give the administrator a perfect score excellent in every area. Long mostly gave the administrator satisfactory scores. She circled needs attention in the areas of responsiveness advocacy, media relations and interpersonal communication. She marked good for budgeting, financial analysis, strategic planning and presentation skills. Commissioner Charlie Justice scored LaSala as satisfactory to excellent in every category, with excellent marks for function/operational expertise, operational planning, initiative and risk taking, budgeting and integrity. Seel gave the administrator the most points for satisfactory performance, marking excellent for his technological literacy only. Roche found nothing excellent about LaSalas work in 2013, nor did he mark anything as needing attention, although he did create a new spot between needs attention, the bottom of the scale, and satisfactory, for several of his answers. In 2014, LaSalas composite score fell to 70 percent. Seel marked needs attention, the lowest grade, on nearly every area except vision, presentation skills and media relations, which she marked as satisfactory. She marked good for technological literacy, budgeting and financial analysis. Susan Latvala was more generous in her scores, giving LaSala an excellent or good in every category. She did remark under the vision category that LaSala does an excellent job within the organization not as well with community. She also said he needed to practice presenting at a level that everyone can understand. While Morroni did not give LaSala a perfect score, he gave him more excellent marks than other commissioners. He marked good for facilitative leadership, remarking that the outcome of the EMS debate would be an indicator. He also marked good for mediation/negotiation, commenting, Sometimes it doesnt come out as neutral all the time. He also marked good for citizen service. He thanked LaSala for his hard work and dedication. It seems we are finally tackling some tough issues with the support of the majority of the board, he wrote. Justice scored LaSala as satisfactory, good or excellent in his responses. He included written comments stating that the administrator has done an outstanding job maintaining the machinations of the county functions during a time of slow economic recovery and structural transition. There are some areas of concern; challenges that exist, he wrote. The administrator needs to improve communication. Communication to the external communities that show respect for the validity of others opinions; communication with staff that shows that change is made with purpose and intent and not for the sake of change; and communication with the Board to better align the goals and plans both short term and long term. Recent circumstances with the EMS issue, the strategic planning and the healthy communities discussions exposed areas in need of greater attention in order for greater successes. Long scored LaSala between satisfactory and excellent and included comments on most pages. She said he could do a better job of building partnerships and/or meeting with community groups in order to continue relationships the county has taken decades to develop. Bob has a stubborn streak that interferes with his good judgment, she wrote. Bob must work on his demeanor during public meetings to ensure respect and civility toward our citizens, as well as the elected officials. She praised him for his work in organizational planning and management. Bob does an outstanding job with strategic short and long range planning, she wrote. His commitment and dedication to financial stability is outstanding. Welch scored LaSala as satisfactory, good or excellent in every area except organizational integrity, which he marked between needs attention and satisfactory. Im concerned with the loss of key personnel and the impact of personnel decisions on internal and external relationships and collaboration, Welch wrote. I am also increasingly concerned with the number of ongoing conflicts and/or disputes with key community partners collaboration with our partners is a priority. He praised the administrator for his strategic planning, the countys website and the use of eTownHall meetings for citizen interaction. Budget and forecasting are excellent, he wrote. Strategic planning implementation depends on collaboration, staff retention and communication. Roche had little good to say about LaSala. His scores mirrored Seels with most coming in somewhere between needs attention and satisfactory. He did mark good for function/operational expertise, and a spot between good and excellent for technological literacy. Roches typed comments were among the most scathing. He listed a number of problems with how the administrator has performed his job and his understanding of the countys citizens. He said LaSala appears to favor a conspiratorial us versus them environment, frustrates easily when questioned, often rejects and rebuts opposing or differing viewpoints and/or alternative approaches, and tends to dismiss or obfuscate rather than consider and incorporate. He listed several issues, including downtown Palm Harbor, the Pinellas County Library Cooperative, EMS, fire services, indigent care contracts, animal services, stormwater and citizen interactions, as having been handled in a spirit of divide and conquer rather than coalesce and achieve. He also expressed concern about a pattern of discarding the value of institutional experience and knowledge, in favor of outside hiring and promotion. Seel said she would begin work immediately to appoint a designee for LaSala to report to and make plans for beginning a search for a new administrator. She did not share any additional information. Assistant County Administrator Mark Woodard served in the administrators role during the Tuesday meeting. The commission is expected to appoint an interim administrator at the April 22 work session. Before leaving the April 15 meeting, LaSala said he was proud of the countys employees. This is a terrific group of employees who try to do their very best each and every day, and I sincerely thank them, he said. Further, I would also be remiss if I did not personally acknowledge my executive staff, and I include those who have been reassigned as well. Each of those individuals brought very real talent and a true commitment to public service. I thank them as well. Again, it has been my privilege to serve as your administrator. LASALA, from page 1A

When it rains, the kids are doubled up with classes in the regular buildings. When this happens, teachers cant teach and the children arent learning. Its a big problem especially when your school goes down a letter grade because of lower test scores. I was able to bring this to the attention of our school superintendent at an education forum and now school officials are looking into this. I think sometimes we just need to take action and find out whom to ask so we can get things done. A lot of times people dont know theres a problem unless we bring it to their attention. Dont be afraid to call your city, county and school officials to help you. I am not saying that every time I try and do something, it gets done. There are times when things dont get done. To me its important to at least try, so you can feel at least youve done your part. Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2Mom FamilyFun.blogspot.com.Recently, my husband commented that I seem to be able to get things done at our daughters school and in the community that most people wouldnt know they could do. I thought about what he said and decided that maybe I could share a little inspiration about how to make a difference. Its all too often we see things and complain, but dont take action to try and do something about it. Like most of you, I am your every day citizen. I try to be active in my kids school and in the community. I volunteer at the school and am on the PTA. I am also involved in the chamber of commerce for my work and recently have taken part in the citys citizen academy. I want our schools and community to be a great place to live, work and play for my family and me. My instinct is when I see something that I think can be improved or needs to be fixed, I call whoever is in charge and try to get something done. Maybe its the reporter in me or because I worked for city government and know basically how things work. I know that, usually, I can at least get a response. Ill give you a few examples. When I moved to my house several years ago, there werent sidewalks on one of the main roads that I would take my kids for a wagon ride. It was very dangerous because part of the road had sidewalks and part of it didnt. I decided to take some pictures and write our city officials about why I thought there needed to be sidewalks. The city looked at what I showed them and said they had money in their sidewalk improvement fund and put in the sidewalks. I was delighted. Recently there was a lot of rain water on the fields where my daughters play their softball games and they were covered with mosquitoes. After playing two games and having the kids eaten by mosquitoes, I looked up mosquito control and emailed them about the problem. The officials emailed me back and had the fields sprayed within a day. Thank you, mosquito control! Another example is my girls school. Like most schools in Pinellas County, there are lots of portables that are used as classrooms. Last year, my daughter, who was in third grade at the time, lost Mom 2 MomKadi Hendricks Tubbs IRB presents annual art and ale event INDIAN ROCKS BEACH The Rotary Club of IRB presents its second annual Art and Ale event, sponsored by BarProducts.com and the Pinellas Education Foundation, Saturday, May 10, 6 to 10 p.m., at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 11220 Oakhurst Road, Largo.

DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 020614 Dont let bed bugs infest your homeRemember the old saying, Sleep tight and dont let the bed bugs bite? It wasnt always a cute bedtime rhyme. In the not too distant past, the tiny, nocturnal bloodsuckers were a serious problem in Florida, across the country and throughout the world. Thanks to DDT and Malathion, they were largely eradicated in most of the developed countries by the 1940s, but if recent reports are any indication, lots of people arent sleeping too tight these days. Bed bug cases have been on the rise since the mid-1990s up almost 500 percent just in the last few years. They have been finding their way back into hotels (upscale and otherwise), cruise ships, dormitories, movie theaters, nursing homes, hospitals and homes. Regarding the latter, mansions can be as vulnerable as their more modest neighbors. The common denominator is usually people, though they also feed on the blood of birds, bats and rodents. Bed bugs and their eggs hitchhike on such things as clothes, backpacks, used furniture, bedding and in the luggage of travelers. They love heat and darkness. And they love sleeping humans. Unless you know what to look for, you might not know you have these uninvited guests until you have a heavy infestation or an allergic reaction to the bed bug saliva that can cause itchy and inflamed welts hours or days later. While you sleep, hungry bed bugs will come out of their hiding places, suck your blood, then scurry back under cover, commonly on or near beds and couches. They inject a fluid into the bites to keep the blood flowing and this fluid, like mosquito bites, is what causes the skin to itch and become swollen. Usually a bed bug hitchhiker is an egg or a pregnant female capable of starting a new infestation upon her arrival at your home. She can produce 200 to 500 eggs in her lifetime, laying 10 to 50 eggs at a time. The eggs, which hatch in one to three weeks, are the size of the tip of a pen, very hard to see without a magnifying glass. When fully grown, bed bugs can be about 1/4-inch long. Adults can live for six months or more without a blood meal. Because bed bugs are usually nocturnal and so good at hiding, they are difficult to spot, especially when an infestation is small. For early detection, which makes control cheaper and more successful, set up a catch trap. Google How to Make a Bed Bug Interceptor Trap out of Common Household Items. Encase your mattress and box springs to make it easier to inspect for bugs. There are other monitoring devices, such as sticky traps, which can be placed around beds and sofas, as well as carbon dioxide and heat attractants. Aside from bite symptoms, you also can look for fecal droppings and blood spots on bedding or on walls around baseboards. Some pest control companies use bed bug-sniffing dogs, but a number of false positives and false negatives have been reported. If bed bugs are found there are several ways to control them, with the best results achieved by using a combination of methods. There are many steps that can be taken by homeowners to optimize the possibility for successful control. First, vacuum the carpets, furniture and any visible bed bugs. Secure the vacuum bag in a zip lock baggy and put it in the freezer for at least a week. Place bed legs in plastic catch traps to thwart bed bug mobility, and encase your mattress and box springs. All bedding should be laundered with soap and a borax additive and dried at a high temperature. Any clothing, pillows and drapery that cant be cleaned in this manner should be dry-cleaned. Dresser drawers should be emptied out so insecticides can be sprayed under the drawers. For detailed information regarding insecticides and other control methods, Google Bed Bugs and Blood-Sucking Conenose or visit your local University of Florida Extension, which is located at 12520 Ulmerton Road in Largo. We are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To speak with a horticulturist, call 5822110 from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays.

Growing WiseJane Morse Better fishing conditions expectedWith a tough week of weather behind us, we are all looking forward to better fishing conditions that should be in store for us this week and through the weekend. With water temperatures still hanging below 70 degrees its safe to think that the best fishing of the season is still ahead. Light winds should clean our nearshore waters up for this weekends fishing. Kingfish remain high on the list of target species. When conditions have been right for kingfish, the majority of the fish have been somewhere in the 3 to 5 mile range. Purely speculation at this point especially considering the amount of wind we had last weekend, but it would probably be a good idea to start in these depths. Blue runners, large pilchards and threadfin herring have been the ticket for these 10 to 20 pound fish. The larger fish will most likely be found out deeper, say 80 feet and out, or shallower in spots like the shipping channel. Inshore, redfish remain the one constant. Improving new moon tides will give anglers the opportunity to target these fish at both the high and low tidal stages. Entry points along the outer edges of the flats are potential low tide hotspots. Lightly weighted soft plastic jigs in darker colors have been working well in this scenario. When the tide peaks later in the morning, its time to start working those oyster mounds for pockets of fish. Corking a live shrimp and casting it around the edges of the oyster mound is one of my favorite ways to fish. Periods of stable weather have allowed for the bait to congregate around many of the local bridges at night. Working the shadow lines with a fast sinking cast net has yielded a variety of bait that can be used both inshore and offshore. Pilchards, the preferred live bait for trout, redfish and snook have been a bit scarce thus far this spring. Being resourceful however and utilizing what bait is available can still produce good catches of quality fish.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

The request was supported by thousands of anglers and tournament directors after the recent closure of the Southern Kingfish Association. Our focus, that of the Old Salt Fishing Foundation, has always been and always will be, do what is best for all anglers, said president Tom Verdensky. The Old Salt Kingmasters National Kingfish Series is just that, a tournament series for the anglers. The past sanctioning bodys focus was primarily on the southeastern United States. We will not only reunite these tournament directors and anglers but revive and combine them with the synergies of the Old Salts. As part of the new series, the Kingmasters World Championship will be held in May 2015 in Madeira Beach. One of the driving forces in the move was Brazilian angler Guilherme Rodrigues who landed a 74.13pound king mackerel off Brazils Itzcolomi Islands. The catch may qualify him for a line class world record from the IGFA. This catch brought our attention for the need to add an international division to the series, said Verdensky. Discussions with event organizers are already being put in place from Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, Central and South America to name a few. Speaking from the city of Madeira Beachs perspective, the city has been impressed with the Old Salts in how they conduct their massive fishing tournaments, said Madeira Beach City Manager Shane Crawford. I have personally worked with them on an ongoing basis and their professionalism, reputation and vigor make their events the biggest and the best in the area. They constantly continue to amaze me. The world championship also will be accompanied by a sponsor and director summit. For more information, please visit www.oldsaltfish ing.org, email info@oldsaltfishing.org or call 216-6601. Photo by JIM LAYFIELDTussock moth caterpillars crawl along a chain link fence under oak trees on the property of Walsingham Elementary School in Largo, April 13. According to the University of Florida Entomology and Nematology Department, tussock moth caterpillars emerge from eggs most often laid in shade trees, especially oaks, the previous spring by adult moths. It is not uncommon for them to fall out of trees onto unsuspecting people below. They also may hang from a silk string to reach the ground. After two to four weeks of growth, the caterpillars spin their cocoons. They emerge from the pupal stage as adult moths about two weeks later. The male moths fly to the flightless females to mate, and the females lay their eggs on the cocoons recently vacated. The cycle repeats the following spring when the caterpillars emerge from the eggs.Caterpillar gathering

Although the children may visit often, typically they are not present when it comes time for mom or dads doctors visits or other appointments they attend for their well being. One of the most difficult things for patients, is knowing how to ask questions of a doctor. You owe it to yourself to ask these questions, especially when it comes to prescribed medications. Take a list of your current medications and vitamin intake along with you. It is important to review each drug recommended and learn of all the side effects that are a possibility. Because time is limited it is important to make a list of any questions you have pertaining to your health so you are sure to get your answers before walking out the door. Jot down the answers if you fear you may not remember them. Invite a friend or caregiver you trust to go on doctor visits along with you for support. This person does not need to speak for you but their presence may ensure that someone is caring for you. This relative or friend can help you remember the key points made by your doctor. If you're not sure you understand what is happening, ask questions until you feel comfortable. It is important to know all of your options when diagnosed with a problem. If tests are recommended, be sure to ask what they entail so you are comfortable if you choose to go forward with them. Learn if there are side effects to these tests. It is quite normal to feel worried about speaking frankly with your doctor, but your doctor will be able to be more sensitive to your needs if you inform him of your concerns. He or she is there to help you with all of your medical concerns. It is important to be assertive and to gather all the knowledge you can regarding your health.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, April 24, 2014After being sued by the Wall Street Journal, the government finally released its Medicare reimbursement data last week. It included the less-than-stunning revelation that 28 of the 100 doctors who received the largest payments in 2012 were from Florida. No other state came close. And no physician in the country billed Medicare for bigger bucks than Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, a West Palm Beach ophthalmologist who operates several clinics and is tight with a powerful Democratic senator. Melgen got almost $21 million from Medicare in 2012. (No, you dont need your vision checked $20,827,341 is the actual number, for one year.) Records show Melgen filed claims for 894 patients and 92,000 procedures, meaning Medicare paid him approximately $11,700 for every eyeball that was eyeballed by him and his staff. Even in Florida, the mecca for Medicare tricksters, Melgens billing habits drew notice. The government had already forced him to give back $8.9 million from 2007 and 2008, alleging he overbilled for injectable Lucentis, an expensive medication that combats macular degeneration. The disorder is common in the elderly, and nationwide the treatment costs Medicare $1 billion a year. In 2012, Melgen reported administering more than 37,000 doses of Lucentis in South Florida. Currently hes under investigation for possible fraud, and twice FBI agents have swarmed his offices in search of evidence. His attorney says hes done nothing wrong, and has taken action to recover the nearly $9 million that Melgen repaid the agency in charge of Medicare and Medicaid. The doctor has an important ally in Sen. Robert Menendez, the New Jersey Democrat, who has traveled on Melgens private jet and hung out at his posh spread in the Dominican Republican. When Melgen first got in trouble, Menendez called the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to defend his pals prolific billing. Another time the senator argued in favor of a company owned by Melgen in a dispute over a seaport contract in the Dominican Republic.For his part, the doctor donated $700,000 to a Democratic political action committee that gave $582,000 to Menendezs re-election efforts. So far, Melgens friendship with Menendez has failed to deflect the FBIs interest.Second on the national scoreboard of Medicares top billers is Dr. Asad Qamar, an Ocala cardiologist who was paid $18.2 million in 2012. He told the New York Times that his charges are fair, and that the sum is so large partly because he works in an outpatient facility for which the government pays added fees. Like Melgen, Qamar is an enthusiastic donor to Democrats, including President Obama. He gave more than $100,000 to the Democratic National Committee, and distributed other contributions to congressional candidates in five states, including Florida. After federal auditors began examining Qamars bills, the doctor hired lobbyists to contact more than a dozen U.S. lawmakers, seeking relief from the scrutiny. The auditors put an astronomical burden on us, in terms of manpower, he told the Times. An astronomic burden caused by astronomical billing. Any physician who rakes in $18 million from Medicare in 12 months deserves special attention, because such a massive volume of medical claims definitely isnt business as usual. In fact, according to a Times analysis, only about 2 percent of doctors collected almost 25 percent of the countrys Medicare payouts in 2012. Expanding that graph, just 25 percent of doctors accounted for 75 percent of Medicares total spending, which reached $77 billion that year. Its hardly a shocker that Florida leads the way. No place in the nation hosts more Medicare fraud prosecutions, a grim distinction. The good news is that the conviction rate is high; the bad news is that we could quadruple the number of prosecutors, and theyd still be overworked. Meanwhile, soaring Medicare costs cut deeper and deeper into federal tax revenues. The program is so huge that it practically defies effective auditing, but certainly a much better job of that could be done. Publicizing the payment database is a start. Some medical practices are more complex than others, and the numbers only tell part of the story for each physician on the list. However, its more than a statistical blip when two doctors collect a total of $39 million, more than hundreds of other practitioners in those same specialties added together. California, which has twice the population of Florida, had only 10 doctors in the top 100 Medicare billers, compared to our stellar 28. Its not that Florida has more sick and elderly people than California, because we dont. We just happen to attract more opportunists.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132.Is there a medically-recognized ailment known as magazine addiction? If not, perhaps there should be. Victims of this ailment can be easily recognized, usually by the postal workers who must lug the magazines to the addressees doorstep and try to somehow fit the periodicals into the mailbox. Magazine addiction has several causes, although an average addict may not manifest every symptom. Loneliness and a sense of isolation can be a trigger. If I feel disconnected to the human race, the arrival of a dozen or more magazines each month can make me feel plugged in to the world. If Sally flunked out of high school and is tired of hearing her better-educated neighbors talk about high-falutin topics such as Vladimir Putin and the federal reserve, she may succumb to the notion that compulsive reading of many magazines will elevate her into membership in Mensa. Good luck with that, Sally. If you randomly examine, say, 20 different magazines, youll be struck by a disillusioning fact: only a few will have much worthwhile content. Many if not most publications are nothing more than advertising vehicles. The publishers dont really want to inform or educate you and me. They want us to rush out and buy the mostly unnecessary products they advertise. To help create or feed our addiction, many publishers lower their yearly subscription rates to basement levels. Each week I receive magazine offers so low in price I almost feel guilty not to subscribe. For 10 bucks or less I can get a years worth of The Duck Hunters Gazette or the beautifully illustrated Slim Butt, telling women (and men, I suppose) 80 ways to make their fannies appear slender. The publishers dont survive on the money we send them for our subscriptions; they get most of their profits from advertising. And that depends on how high they can boost their circulation. When it comes to spying on the habits of Americans, the CIA and National Security Agency are pikers compared to the publishing Mafia. Although a magazine may assure you that it will not give out your address, dont believe it. Lets say that in January you subscribe to Mortuary Monthly. Within weeks youll be getting subscription offers from Modern Gravestones and Funeral Wear. Soon will come notices from Cremation World magazine. A year ago I made the mistake of subscribing to a publication of the Harvard medical school. Today Im on the subscription target list for the Mayo Clinic, the Hebrew Colonic Digest, Prevention magazine, Fitness, Womens Health, Mens Health, Diet Tips for Astronauts and a new book, How I Survived a Month of Lithuanian Cuisine. If I followed all the advice in these publications, Id be the healthiest man in my psychiatric ward. Some magazines can be worth subscribing to just for the gifts they offer. I have a closet half-filled with jackets, duffel bags and overnight cases, all of them bearing the logos of the publications I signed up for. Although a magazine addict will seldom go bankrupt from his (or her) habit, he will eventually wake up to the fact that hes running out of spare time. Before his addiction took hold, he had a social life, he exercised, loved to cook, played with his children, attended prayer meetings, all that good stuff. As his magazines piled up, he gradually abandoned all that. Today he devotes all his discretionary hours (or minutes) to reading the eight or 10 publications that have arrived during the past week. Except the magazine addict doesnt really read. He merely skims and browses. Theres not enough time to actually concentrate on the details. If he takes the time to do so, hell be cutting into the time remaining to attack the other stories or publications that await. Recovery from magazine addiction often comes when the subscriber stops to ask this question: Do I really need, or want, to know all this stuff? Thats what happened to me a few years ago as I plowed through The Economist, a superb British weekly newsmagazine. If I spared four hours on each issue, I was plugged into not just the big stories such as a new pope, but also such throat-grabbers as the plunging of eggplant prices in Regurgistan. I finally took my fingers off the pulses of the world, and Ive been much happier since.I still love magazines, and I dont mean this column as an advisory against them. But like food, sex or good conversation, there should be a limit.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSSo much for one man, one voteEditor: As a nation we find ourselves blessed with an abundance of that element that has eluded mankind since civilization first emerged. I refer here to security from those who would harm us. With the vast expanse of the great oceans separating us from potential enemies, our shores seem inviolable. On and below the seas, in the air and even in space we have created a seemingly impenetrable umbrella of protection. Combined with our unparalleled ability to retaliate, in kind, only the foolish would consider engaging us militarily. In spite of this shield, we continue focusing our attention outwardly when searching for danger, when it should be apparent the imminent threat to America lies from within. I refer here to the fact many of those freedoms and rights we cherished in the past are today merely an illusion. The prime and most significant example of this is the belief the citizens of this nation elect those who will represent them in congress, and that it is these same citizens those elected intend to serve. In reality from the moment our representatives step off the plane and onto the tarmac in Washington, and in most cases long before, they and their vote have already been co-opted by those with the financial wherewithal to pay the asking price for their allegiance. In truth, their election was not a result of conscious support from the electorate, it came about because of the vast sums of money funneled into their campaigns by the ultra wealthy, and anyone naive enough to think these people didnt expect a return on their investment would do well to seek permanent residency in Fantasy Land. As if this was not bad enough, it is about to get worse. Three recent decisions by the conservative led John Roberts Court have seen to that. Consider the ramifications of their rulings regarding the intrusion of money into politics. I refer specifically to the decisions that ruled in effect, Corporations are people, PACs could not be limited in political spending and now their most recent ruling, that individuals could not be limited in what they donate to campaigns. That the court feels money is entitled to a vote is a given. Sadly, no one from the right is on record questioning these decisions. It gives one reason to speculate as to the attitude of conservatives had the court ruled that in future elections each eligible voter would be entitled to one vote for every $1 of their net worth. While on the surface this proposal may seem farfetched this is exactly what the court has implied as a result of the three decisions they rendered. The courts willingness to ignore the corrupting influence of money in politics has opened the floodgates. This will eventually result in the destruction of the system that for so long assured we would remain a Democratic Republic. That is, if this hasnt already occurred. America was founded on the premise of one man, one vote. The courts recent decisions in effect sell to the highest bidder the right to disenfranchise the average citizen from that promise. This conclusion is based on the fact the wealthiest citizens, those who now hold a virtual stranglehold on our government by virtue of their financial advantage, will most certainly put an end to the dreams of the authors of the American Constitution, the dream of government of the people, by the people and for the people, a premise we cherished since the moment we were founded. Robert Shaw Madeira Beach Saunders ignores facts on ObamacareRe: Obamacare: Just magical thinking, April 10Editor: Once again, TBN newspapers show their true colors: anything to discredit a black man in the White House! Had the TBN done its due diligence as responsible journalists, you would have discovered that this article by Debra Saunders ignores the facts and the truth regarding the Affordable Care Act. Worse, the article goes on to distort the realities of both the ACA and healthcare in the U.S.A., the most expensive for-profit healthcare system in the world! Any attempt to right the wrongs of the U.S. healthcare debacle results in floods of money to create lies and distorted opinions from the insurance industry, the healthcare industry, and ultra-right politicos, whose siren songs lure the gullible. Here is one link, out of a host of links, that afford responsible journalists with the facts and the truth: www.politifact.com/truth-o -meter/statements/2014/mar/18/john-boehner/john-boehner-says -more-people-are-uninsured-obamac. Mike MacDonald ClearwaterEditors note: Tampa Bay Newspapers strives to print columns from conservative as well as liberal journalists on its Viewpoints pages. The columnists opinions do not necessarily reflect those of the newspaper. Light rail: An inexpensive way to goEditor: Although I am sorry to see that planned transportation improvements, if approved by voters in November, will increase the sales tax, hurting some folks, they also will help them by providing inexpensive rides to distant jobs. When I was entering high school in 1944, I lived on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio. I chose to attend an all boys Catholic High School on the far east side of Cleveland. No problem: I took a bus to downtown and then light rail to the school area. Many years later, I returned to Cleveland, having retired from the U.S. Marine Corps (1968). My job required much air travel. Fortunately, I could drive to the light rail station a few blocks from my home, leave the car there without charge and speed to the airport. I travel for pleasure now, but have a friend to ride with me to Tampa Airport and take my car home to avoid large parking fees. I take the shuttle home, but light rail would be preferred. Bob McEwen, Indian ShoresMissed opportunity on bridge workEditor: Two articles in the Beach Beacon struck a nerve with me this week. 1. Park Boulevard bridge repairs delayed Last October the county announced the bridge would be closed in June 2014. Wouldnt all these documented delays in the article had been in the process already at the time they announced the anticipated closure? The Project Engineer is just now finalizing a contract and getting it out for bids? Seems like that would have been almost completed when they announced the initial closure dates. The real issue is now it appears the bridge will be closed as schools resume in the fall so school buses will need to be re-routed and northern tourists, part-time residents return for the winter adding additional traffic. Seems like an opportunity missed here to complete the repairs when the least amount of impact to the community would have been realized. 2. Residents urged to use sidewalks The captain makes a good point but where this accident occurred at Spitzer Park at the intersection of 176th Avenue East and 176th Terrace Drive E. there are no sidewalks. The only sidewalk in the area is on 175th Avenue East To flip a full size Cadillac in a residential area, speed had to be the issue, hopefully more patrols will remedy that. Using sidewalks is always the recommended. But I hope the captain and the Indian Shores Police Department recognizes the more important issue in this accident was excessive speed and speeding in general in our residential neighborhoods.

Health newsBayCare Hospitals introduce new endoscopy equipmentCLEARWATER Patients in the Tampa Bay area needing advanced diagnostic endoscopic ultrasounds now may benefit from new technology which can mean less time in a procedure and a more detailed diagnosis thanks to a new endoscopy processor at three BayCare hospitals that offers the latest, most precise imaging technology. Located at Morton Plant, St. Anthonys and St. Josephs hospitals, the new endoscopy processor, also called an EUS or Endoscopic Ultrasound, is used if a standard endoscopy exam has determined the need for further investigation. EUS may be used to evaluate stages of cancer, chronic pancreatitis or other disorders of the pancreas. It is used to study: abnormalities or tumors in organs, including the gallbladder and liver; bumps in the intestinal wall; or the muscles of the lower rectum and anal canal. EUS also is used in diagnosis and staging of tumors of the esophagus, and in the diagnosis and staging of certain tumors of the chest cavity. The EUS technology offers radial and linear scanning. The 360 degree scanning offers the advantage of a full panoramic view and a Doppler functionality to display blood flow dynamics inside the blood vessels. This adds valuable information to the examination, simplifying the orientation within the gastrointestinal tract and therefore speeding up the examination time. The linear scanning technology provides a scanning range of 180 degrees. Linear scanning technology is designed to continuously visualize the progression of needle insertion into the tissue when performing a EUS-Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) procedure to collect tissue samples or other therapeutic procedures.Local ostomy group to meetST.

PETERSBURG The National Institutes of Health recently awarded $747,000 to Eckerd College to fund computational modeling of how certain cancer-fighting drugs interact in the human body. It is the first NIH grant ever awarded to Eckerd College. Assistant Professor of Chemistry Joseph Larkin, Ph.D., will use the grant to develop methods to study boron-based pharmaceuticals that fight resistant cancers, such as pancreatic and ovarian cancers. The NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute K22 Career Development Award will fund three years of study, beginning this summer. Eckerd College students will work with Larkin on the project, along with graduate students and faculty from the University of South Florida. The research will focus not only on how the body interacts with boronbased drugs but how they work, with the goal to develop methods of early cancer detection. Larkin received his Ph.D. is from the University of Georgia with a concentration in quantum chemistry. His post-doctoral training was at the NIH, where he worked on computational methods for studying biochemical systems over different time and length scales. Application of these new methods focused on therapies containing boron and how they react with enzymes in the body.Suncoast Pediatrics to sponsor Playing UnpluggedLARGO Suncoast Pediatrics will sponsor Playing Unplugged on Saturday, April 26, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Largo Central Park, 101 Third St. SE.

Boz Scaggs will perform Tuesday, April 29, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $85. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. A casual listen to the Boz Scaggs discography makes one thing obvious: The artist is both a musical seeker and a man of sizable talent as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. His explorations in blues and R&B, rock and jazz have produced lasting work and a career that has brought with it acclaim, a loyal following and an enduring respect among musicians. Scaggs, a Grammy Awardwinning rock legend, has released 21 albums, two of them gold and three of them platinum. In addition to touring extensively with his own band, Scaggs continues to work with Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald as The Dukes of September, most recently a playing a 47-city tour to rave reviews, performing their own material along with R&B and soul classics. Santana will take the stage Tuesday, April 29, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $89. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerd hall.com. Delivered with a level of passion and soul equal to the legendary sonic charge of his guitar, the sound of Carlos Santana is one of the worlds bestknown musical signatures. For more than four decades from Santanas earliest days as a groundbreaking Afro-Latinblues-rock fusion outfit in San Francisco Carlos has been the visionary force behind artistry that transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries. For more than 40 years and almost as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards, including a record-tying nine for a single project, 1999s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for Smooth). In 1998, the group was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whose website notes, Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of rocks true virtuosos and guiding lights. Santanas last album, Shape Shifter (2012) was the first for his new label, Starfaith Records and debuted at No. 16 on the Billboard Top 200.Health expoThe Fun n Sun Clearwater Health Expo will be presented Wednesday, April 30, at Bright House Field, 601 Old Coachman Road.

For Damien, every day is a fight against corruption and although it isnt apparent at first, he finds an unlikely ally in one of the last good souls of Brick Mansions, Lino, played by David Belle. Stuck in the unpredictable and dangerous concrete jungle of Brick Mansions, Lino battles every day to live an honest life. A vigilante in his own right, he fights for a better overall community. Upon first meeting, their differences get the better of them and the thought of being allies seems nearly impossible. That is until Damien and Lino realize they share a mutual enemy: Tremaine. The duo comes from completely different worlds, whose paths never should have crossed. But when Tremaine kidnaps Linos girlfriend, it sets in motion a chain of adrenaline-spiking events forcing the two to work together. Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless, acrobatic ex-convict, and together attempt to stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. In the process, they learn that they have more in common than they initially realized. A grudging respect for one another leads to friendship as they begin to realize that what happens inside and outside of Brick Mansions is not what it seems.The Quiet OnesGenre: Supernatural horror Cast: Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne and Olivia Cooke Director: John Pogue Rated: PG-13 Tucked away in an estate outside of London, Professor Coupland along with a team of university students conduct an experiment on Jane Harper, a young girl who harbors unspeakable secrets. What dark forces they uncover are more terrifying than any of them expected. Inspired by true events, the film stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke and is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.For No Good ReasonGenre: Documentary Cast: Ralph Steadman and Johnny Depp Director: Charlie Paul Rated: R Ralph Steadman is the last of the original Gonzo visionaries. Made over the course of 15 years, For No Good Reason explores the connection between life and art through the eyes of seminal British artist, Ralph Steadman. Insightful, humorous, and visually stunning, this is a study in honesty, friendship and the ambition that drives an artist. Ralphs rise to prominence began in the early 1970s during the fallout from the love and hope that had swept the western world during the 1960s. This legendary time for music, literature, art and philosophy was the catalyst, along with his developing relationship with writer Hunter S. Thompson, for Ralph to express and chart the wreckage that followed; a large-scale disintegration of a demoralized counter-culture. His art gained recognition in the press and popular-culture publications, both in the U.K. and U.S., for its bold comment on his fiercely heart-felt politics. The film is a richly creative, visual feast about the power and importance of art to achieve Steadmans aim I learnt to draw...to try to change the world. Director Charlie Paul spent 15 years meticulously amassing the footage and creating the remarkable animations for the film to match the same anarchic energy, anger and free spirit of Steadmans pictures. Through Johnny Depps lead in this intimate portrait, we are able to reach to the heart of what make this artist tick, his friendships and fallings out, his love for art and his passion for civil liberties. For No Good Reason is riot of stories and images as we take a trip through the wild and dark days of Steadmans time with Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas writer Hunter S. Thompson, the Rumble in the Jungle; gun fights with literary giant William S. Burroughs and his fiercely heart-felt politics. This is an inventive, energetic, occasionally harrowing, but inspiring and uplifting film with contributions from Terry Gilliam, Richard E. Grant and music from Slash, All American Rejects, Jason Mraz, James Blake, Ed Harcourt and Crystal Castles, all For No Good Reason.The German DoctorGenre: Drama and thriller Cast: Alex Brendemhl, Natalia Oreiro, Diego Peretti, Elena Roger, Guillermo Pfening, Alan Daicz and Florencia Bado Director: Lucia Puenzo Rated: PG-13 Patagonia, 1960. A German doctor (Alex Brendemhl) meets an Argentinean family and follows them on a long desert road to a small town where the family will be starting a new life. Eva (Natalia Oreiro), Enzo (Diego Peretti) and their three children welcome the doctor into their home and entrust their young daughter, Lilith (Florencia Bado), to his care, not knowing that they are harboring one of the most dangerous criminals in the world. At the same time, Israeli agents are desperately looking to bring the German doctor to justice. Based on filmmaker Luca Puenzos fifth novel, the story follows Josef Mengele, the Angel of Death, a German SS officer and a physician at the Auschwitz concentration camp, in the years he spent hiding, along with many other Nazis, in South America following his escape from Germany. Mengele was considered to be one of WWIIs most heinous Nazi war criminals.LockeGenre: Action and drama Cast: Tom Hardy, Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott, Olivia Colman, Tom Holland, Ben Daniels, Danny Webb, Alice Lowe, Bill Milner, Lee Ross, Silas Carson and Kirsty Dillon Director: Steven Knight Rated: R Ivan Locke (Hardy) has worked diligently to craft the life he has envisioned, dedicating himself to the job that he loves and the family he adores. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul. All taking place over the course of one absolutely riveting car ride, Locke is an exploration of how one decision can lead to the complete collapse of a life. Walking with the EnemyGenre: Drama Cast: Jonah Armstrong, Hannah Tointon, Ben Kingsley, Simon Kunz, Simon Dutton, Burn Gorman, Shane Taylor, Charles Hubbell, Simon Hepworth, Andrew Brooke, William Hope Director: Mark Schmidt Not rated Inspired by the true story of Pinchas Rosenbaum, Walking with the Enemy begins in the final months of World War II. The Nazis are desperately trying to enact their genocide against Jews in Hungary, who had been protected from persecution until their leader Regent Horthy (Sir Ben Kingsley) was forced to bow to the will of Hitler and Eichmann. Hoping to find his displaced family and avoid being placed in a labor camp, young Elek Cohen (Jonas Armstrong) undertakes extraordinary measures to survive, using a stolen uniform to pose as a Nazi officer so that he can reroute Jews to safety and disrupt the activities of the German occupiers. Young & BeautifulGenre: Drama Cast: Graldine Pailhas, Marine Vacth, Frederic Pierrot, Fantin Ravat, Johan Leysen and Charlotte Rampling Director: Francois Ozon Not rated Young & Beautiful is a coming-of-age portrait of a 17-year-old French girl over four seasons and four songs, from her sexual awakening to her first time, from her exploration of love to her search for her identity.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

VIEWPOINTSCarl HiaasenFlorida leads the way in Medicare fraud prosecutions. Page 13A. Photos by TAMMY CAPITANIA team of volunteers from Bauder Elementary School and Seminole Home Depot built a backyard play set as a surprise for 10-year-old Joshua Steijger, a Bauder student who is battling cancer. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Third-grader Joshua Steijger has always loved playing on the swings. Trips to Largos Central Park playground rank high among the 10-year-olds favorite pastimes. Some days it even rivals his love of wrestling and WWE star John Cena. But the trips to the park have stopped since Joshua began chemotherapy in December. In November, doctors discovered a tumor on an optical nerve. They began treatment within weeks, before the holidays were even over, in hopes of shrinking the mass and saving his vision. Though the rocking sensation of the swings soothes him when he isnt feeling well, the drive to the park, and crowds of children can be overwhelming for him, said his grandmother and legal guardian Maria Vanderham. So last month a team of volunteers from Bauder Elementary School, where Joshua goes to school, reached out to local businesses for donations to build him his own backyard play set with swings, monkey bars, a slide and a sandbox. Its hard when hes on the playground and doesnt feel well, Vanderham said. But the swinging calms him. Now he can go right out the back door. If its hot out when hes playing and he feels sick, he can just run inside.

Bob Evans Hearing 393-3775IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR HEARING DURING BETTER HEARING MONTH. LaSala firedCounty Commission terminates administrators contract By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The first clue that something was awry came from media reports about less-than-satisfactory results of an annual performance review. Then Commission Chair Karen Seel removed the review of the Pinellas Countys administrator from the April 15 meeting agenda and later replaced it. The first item of business at that meeting was unanimous approval of Bob LaSalas termination. Commissioner Norm Roche was not present for the vote. Seel began by asking if a commissioner would make a motion to terminate LaSalas contract without cause. She said the contract called for a 90-day notice provision. She said during those 90 days, LaSala would report to her or her designee for assigned duties. Commissioner Ken Welch made the motion. Commissioner Janet Long seconded it. Welch thanked LaSala for his service. But I think this is an appropriate step forward, he said. It is with mixed emotions I leave my position as Pinellas County Administrator, LaSala said after the vote. Please know that it has been an honor to serve this community. He thanked the commission for recognition of my financial management acumen, and I am particularly gratified that I leave Pinellas County in far better economic condition than when I arrived, he said. As you know, I am not one to shy away from our biggest, most important community issues, he continued. And while I believe we have made progress on the very tough issues related to emergency medical services and health and community services, I recognize that those incremental accomplishments have not been without controversy. That said, they are incredibly important matters to our community, and I wish you all the success in resolving them and moving forward positively as I hand the baton to your next leader. Of course, I will always be available to help you in any way I can.Hired during a time of controversyPerhaps the most-respected administrator in the countys recent history passed the baton to LaSala in 2008. Fred Marquis served Pinellas County as its administrator from 1979 to 2000. He returned in an interim capacity in 2007 after former administrator Steve Spratt resigned in the aftermath of a grand jury investigation of a land deal between former property appraiser Jim Smith and the county. Marquis strongly endorsed LaSala for the job, in part due to his prior experience. LaSala worked as the countys chief assistant administrator and assistant administrator from 1979 to 1989. He returned to Pinellas from California, where he managed cities for 10 years. He now has served counties and cities for more than 40 years, including more than 23 years in Florida. His governmental career started in New York and New Jersey. During a meeting on Sept. 9, 2008, when the commission approved his initial contract, he vowed to provide a proactive commitment to professional management. Being a good leader means you have to have followers, LaSala said. At the time, Seel asked him to describe what he thought were some of the countys opportunities for improvement. I believe you dont have to be sick to get better, LaSala said. He said while Pinellas was pretty healthy, that condition would be tested in the coming months in terms of resources. He said some of the continuing challenges would be setting priorities for services and the ability to respond to changes. My job for the next few months will be to do a lot of listening, he said. After only two months on the job, LaSala told members of the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake that the county would be faced with major decisions about its EMS system and budget. He was right. In the end, one of those issues garnered him praise, the second, the EMS controversy, may have helped cost him his job.Falling review scoresIn 2012, LaSala received a composite score of almost 81 percent on his annual review. His high score was for preparation and administering of the budget, 3.64 out of 4. His next highest grades were for integrity, getting 3.5 for his overall integrity and 3.57 for his personal integrity. His low score was 2.71 for facilitative leadership and facilitating county board effectiveness. In 2013, his composite score was down to 74 percent, representing the highs and lows in seven categories. His high score was for organization, planning and management with an average rating of 3.29 out of 3.5. He scored 3.25 for strategic leadership, 3.17 for integrity, 3.02 for service delivery management, 2.83 for responsiveness, 2.70 for communication. His lowest score, 2.52, was for policy facilitation.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala makes a statement April 15 after the commission unanimously voted to terminate him. See LASALA, page 7A The Ave Maria Guild of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church held an Easter parade at their parish center on April 9 to benefit the school. The eight-grade girls judged the Easter bonnet competition based on beauty, creativity and theme. A luncheon and social hour followed the parade. Pictured, from left, are Carol Zinda, the guilds president; Phyllis Gregory; and Delores Riley, treasurer. Easter bonnetsSPC forum takes on transit By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE On Nov. 4, registered voters throughout Pinellas will go to the polls to decide on a change in funding for local transportation. Supporters say the additional funding from a 1 percent sales tax compared to the amount available through ad valorem taxes is necessary to improve transportation to provide sustainable economic growth into the future. Opponents say the current funding method would be sufficient with better use of the money. On April 3, the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College, based on the Seminole campus, hosted a two-hour public forum Dealing with Gridlock: Is There a Light Rail in Pinellas Countys Future? Representatives from both sides were invited to present their case. SPC Seminole Provost James Olliver moderated the event inside the colleges Digitorium. Don Ewing, co-chair of Yes for Greenlight, provided information in support of the Greenlight Pinellas initiative. Barbara Haselden, campaign manager and spokesperson for No Tax for Tracks, presented information for the opposition. SPC plans to use the forum process to cover all the referendums on the November ballot to provide the public an objective and nonpartisan view, Olliver said. A test of the forums ability to help the public make up its mind was used for the first time ever that Thursday night when instant polling via cellphone texting was introduced to the audience. This is probably the first time youve been in an auditorium and you have been told to keep the cell phone on, said David Klement, executive director of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions.

Before the presentations, 24 people indicated support for Greenlight Pinellas, 11 were against and five were undecided. After, 30 people were in favor, 21 against and only two undecided.In support of GreenlightEach speaker was given 15 minutes to make his or her case. Ewing went first. He took the audience back to the mid-1960s when Disney began its plans to build the City of Tomorrow in Orlando. The goal was to create a pedestrian-friendly and car-free environment. He said while Greenlight Pinellas wasnt intended to turn the county into a Disneyworld, the plan did include the idea of providing walkable communities with improved transit and reduced use of vehicles. Projections show, without change, Pinellas future is one of more congestion on local roads and longer commute times. Ewing said continual widening of existing roads is getting more difficult due to lack of space and safety concerns. That cant be our only approach, he said. He advocates Greenlight Pinellas with plans for improved bus service and a future light rail system, running for Clearwater to St. Petersburg with the potential for a connection to Tampa and points beyond to provide regional connectivity. Supporters of Greenlight say it is more than just light rail. They say that better transportation system will create jobs and encourage economic development, enhance quality of life, as well as support the environment. Adding nighttime hours to the bus schedule will allow workers on the late shift to use public transit to get home something they cant do now. Students taking classes at SPCs different campuses will find it easier to use the bus system with decreased wait times of 15 minutes at stops. Tourists will be able to get from the airport to the beach using public transportation. He encouraged the public to visit pinellasontrack.com for complete information. Its a real life look at what enhanced bus service and rail can do, he said. Ewing said the plan years in the making was well vetted and had been analyzed by two third party experts Ernst and Young, financial auditors, and HTNB, a national engineering and transportation consulting firm. He explained the different routes that make up a variety of proposed enhanced bus services, running throughout the county. Light rail doesnt appear for 10 years, he said; however, the route is already mapped out. The majority of rail lines are on public land, meaning fewer problems with right of way. Once the Greenlight Pinellas plan is complete, 80 percent of the population will live within 1/4 mile of a bus rapid transit station and 86 percent will work within 1/4 mile of a station, he said. Greenlight Pinellas plan relies on an increased level of funding that would come from a 1 percent sales tax as opposed to collection of ad valorem taxes. Ewing said for some, taxes would go down. For example, a taxpayer of an owner-occupied home with a median value of $161,600 would pay $81.52 less with a sales tax, per estimates from IRS studies. He pointed out that the sales tax would not be levied on groceries or medical items and would be limited to the first $5,000 of any purchase. He said a person could buy a car for $20,000 and not pay more than $50 in transit tax. He added that tourists were expected to pay about 1/3 of the tax money generated. He said if the tax were approved, an oversight committee of citizens would monitor how the money is spent, as would County Commissioners. He said Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority the receiver of the proposed transit tax money was fiscally responsible, receiving consistently clean audits of its finances. He urged the public to vote yes for Greenlight.Against GreenlightHaselden then presented the case against Greenlight. She pointed out that it cost a family of four about $100 a day to go to Disney. She said if they stayed at a hotel there, ate at the restaurants and paid other expenses, the cost would be $4,500 to $5,000 an amount not affordable for everyone. Disney was an entrepreneur and a private business, she said. She told the audience that public transportation was stagnant. She showed a chart that showed 50 percent of the U.S. used public transportation post World War II. Since then, the number has dropped to 2 percent. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 1.6 percent use public transportation in Pinellas. Her source was Heritage Foundation: Public Transit: A Bad Product at a Bad Price. She showed a photo of a new PSTA bus that she said cost $650,000. Currently there are 200 in the PSTA fleet, she said, with plans for more. She argued that PSTA doesnt pay for itself, and said about 75 percent of its operations were subsidized. About 22 percent of PSTAs $63 million operating budget comes from federal or state grants, another 22 percent from passenger fares and about 53 percent from ad valorem taxes. The capital budget includes another $28 million. Haselden said her numbers come from PSTA. She said it costs about $7 a ride with riders paying an average of 91 cents, meaning in total PSTA is subsidized by 87 percent. She showed a chart of the countys property values and pointed to the decrease after 2007 when the recession hit. She said the amount of money PSTA collected dropped from $38 million to $26 million due to the decline in property values. She said a check of past years budgets shows the agency spending money in 2002 and continuing to spend until 2007 when it began to slow down. Budget cuts followed including staff layoffs. Then, the agency raised its millage rate, and spending increased again, including hiring of staff, Haselden said. They outspend their income, she said. She talked about a statement made by PSTA CEO Brad Miller, who said if no new sustainable funding source is found, PSTA would have to cut 30 percent in 2016. PSTA is at a crossroads, she said. She talked about the negative aspects of light rail, including the difference between high-speed and light rail, which causes congestion at intersections. She is opposed to increasing the sales tax from 7 percent to 8 percent. PSTA currently receives $32 million from ad valorem taxes and would receive $148 million from a 1 percent sales tax, she said. She objects to Greenlight supporters calling it a tax swap. She said unless it was revenue neutral it was no swap. She said if an additional 1 percent sales tax was approved, Pinellas would have the highest in the state, which cannot be good for business. She said with more potential revenue, PSTA could increase its credit limit and debt to the taxpayer. She talked about false premises and claims by Greenlight that there would be more than 200,000 new people in Pinellas by 2040. Thats not true, she said. The population is not growing. She disputed claims of record ridership being touted almost every month by PSTA. She said the numbers are inflated by how they count rides. She gave an example of a single trip with multiple bus transfers. She said each time a passenger boards a bus, it is counted as a ride, so a single person taking the bus to the mall could be counted as six rides. The (ridership) numbers havent changed in eight years, she said. She talked about empty buses and buses running with only two to three people. She said PSTA paid $700,000 for a study that showed the top five routes were so busy they were almost dangerous and other routes not performing. She said the entire Greenlight Plan was just a promise. There is no guarantee in writing, she said. She said people dont want to give up roadway lanes to dedicated use by light rail or buses. She showed a chart of costs and fares for several metro areas using light rail, pointing out that none of them came close to breaking even. In Pinellas, theres just no need, she said. U.S. 19 is almost finished. I-275 corridor is going to connect to U.S. 19. The roadway will have no stoplights, she said. Haselden believes public transportation should be bid out to the private sector if PSTA cant provide safe reliable service to 1.6 percent of our neighbors, for those who want a ride that doesnt take all day to get to their destination. She pointed out that PSTA would continue to receive grant money and fare money on top of the projected increase from the sales tax a considerable increase in overall funding.Questions and answersThe presenters also fielded questions from the audience. One led to a lengthy discussion on population density. The biggest problem is that we dont have the density needed (for rail), Haselden said. You go from a low density area to another low density area. She compared Pinellas Countys population to that of New York City, which has enough people to support enhanced systems. She also said light rail wasnt needed to stimulate the economy, she said it could be done using Bus Rapid Transit. Ewing disputed the statement that the proposed light rail route connects two low-density areas, stating that Pinellas County has the highest density of any county in the state. He said the rail line would travel between the countys two most dense areas, traveling through Pinellas Park and Largo on its way. Over time, this will force people to live around rail lines and in high rises increasing density narrowing our territory, Haselden said. Were used to a large territory. Another question led to a discussion on economic development. Ewing said the 16 rail stations would be located away from current developed areas onto land not currently developed, which would be good for the local economy. Haselden said the Federal Transit Administration described development around rail lines as redistributed growth, not new growth. She gave the example of the effect malls had on downtown areas in the recent past. This will drive people to shop near rail lines, she said. One man, who identified himself as a veteran, asked if the steel for the tracks, trains and other components would come from America or overseas. Brad Miller, PSTA CEO, said federal law requires it all to be made in America. Ewing answered anothers concern by saying Greenlight Pinellas would provide options and alternatives. Some would use (public transportation) every day and some on occasion, he said. He gave an example of a trip to the airport, thus saving money on parking. Its about getting people off the roads to not have to expand the roads, he said. We can only expand the roads a certain amount. Were running out of land. We need to educate people that they can do something else. Haselden said it was more important to work on the roads. Ninety-eight percent of us use the roads, she said. FORUM, from page 1A Seminole resident Emma Mattes travelled to Washington, D.C., to meet with Rep. David Jolly on April 9, Advocacy Day. Mattes, an advocate for the Dystonia Advocacy Network, as a form of Dystonia called Spasmodic Dysphonia, which affects her vocal cords. Shes been working with the organization for five years. In the past, shes gone to D.C. to meet with Congressman C.W. Bill Young and always received a warm welcome and much needed support for my cause, she said. Representative Jolly offered me the same warm welcome and support which was very inspiring to me and my fellow advocates.Advocacy Day AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 3A Local student named Horatio Alger ScholarSEMINOLE Jamal Waked, 18, of Seminole was one of only three high school students in the state of Florida, and one of only 105 students in the country to be named among the 2014 Horatio Alger National Scholars. Waked and his fellow 2014 national scholars were invited to participate in a four-day weekend of activities, roundtables and special sessions in Washington, D.C., April 3-6. The students also received their honors and had an opportunity to meet such leading individuals as Justice Clarence Thomas, entrepreneur and business visionary Sir Richard Branson, and actor Tom Selleck. Since 1984, Horatio Alger Association Members and Friends have been funding need-based college scholarships to support deserving young people to overcome their adversity and pursue their dreams through higher education. So far the Association has awarded $100 million to approximately 20,000 students. Waked, born in Panama, relocated to the United States when he was 4. Hes a member of the 2014 graduating class of St. Petersburg High School. Hell be attending the University of Florida in Gainesville in the fall to pursue a career in engineering and the sciences. Photo courtesy of ROSALIE HAGELJamal Waked, right, was one of 105 students to be named a 2014 Horatio Alger National Scholar. While in Washington, D.C., accepting his honor, he met actor Tom Selleck. STUDENT, from page 1Aoffice clerk, and Cheron Panakhyo, Joshuas teacher, organized the project. Capitani served as the community liaison for the project and reached out to area businesses for assistance. Seminole Home Depot donated most of the building materials; West Coast Fence Corporation and PlayNation of Tampa provided additional swing parts. Home Depot also sent over a team of volunteers to help build the playset, and lunch was donated by Mikes Pizza of Largo. The swingset was a complete surprise for Joshua, who arrived home just as finishing touches were being made to the structure. His reaction was priceless, Capitani said. The glowing smile, large eyes and the outburst of such joy when he asked, Is that for me? Joshua was in such awe What joy to be able to help make the life of a child with such unfortunate circumstances more enjoyable. Life hasnt been easy for Joshua or his siblings, said Vanderham. Their parents arent in the picture. So in addition to caring for Joshua since November, she has also adopted his younger brother, Jordan Steijger, 4. Their sisters, 9-year-old twins, live with their maternal grandmother. But Joshuas had it the worst, Vanderham said. The child has been through heck ever since he was born. Hes hopped from home to home for years between Vanderhams house, his parents and foster care, where he was sometimes mistreated because of his developmental disabilities. He also has neurofibromatosis type I, a lifelong tumor disorder caused by a genetic mutation. It causes tumors to grow throughout the body, she said, and also can result in learning disabilities and vision disorders. The tumors are only worrisome if they affect the nervous system, she said, like this most recent mass growing on an optical nerve. Joshua has already lost sight in his right eye. Shes hoping the chemo will be able to save his vision in his left one. An MRI after the first round of treatments he has a year-and-a-half of chemotherapy sessions ahead of him shows the tumor has shrunk a bit, she said. Shes grateful to Bauder for all of its support throughout his treatment. The school has done a lot for him, she said, or for us, I should say. Vanderham also plans to sign Joshua up for the Childrens Dream Fund. It might be nice to take him to Disney, she said. We went to the zoo recently and they had rides there, and that was all he wanted to do. She added, I just want to do something nice for him. I feel awful. These children havent had anything. Nothing. No company. No parents. Nothing. Its awful. Photo by TIFFANY RAZZANOJoshua Steijger, 10, right, plays on the swingset with his 4-year-old brother, Jordan. The swinging motion calms Joshua when he isnt feeling well.

What It Is and Why You Should Care Largo, FL. Based on the Unclaimed Property Laws in Florida, your stocks, bonds, mutual fund accounts, bank accounts, as well as physical property stored in safe deposit boxes are subject to Escheatment (transfer of property to the state). Thousands of Floridians may be negatively impacted by this aggressive, unwarranted, medieval law and your personal property could be transferred to the states Unclaimed Property Division in accordance with applicable abandoned property laws. To make matters worse, seized assets are required to be liquidated and proceeds are deposited into the State School Fund until the owner comes forward to claim them.

The county signed an interlocal agreement with the Barrier Islands Government Council on July 10, 2012 for Penny for Pinellas funding to pay for undergrounding of utilities, streetscape enhancements and pedestrian safety improvements. Plans called for creating a uniform corridor for all 11 beach communities through common amenities and streetscaping. The project focuses on elimination of visual blight caused by overhead utilities, development of an attractive roadway experience to encourage tourism and economic development, and pedestrian safety improvements. Unfortunately, it has taken an awful long time, Cretekos said. We started talking about this in 2000 14 years ago. In 2007, officials found that initial plans approved in 2001 were not feasible, he said. They werent economically possible, so they had to be changed. The project also was delayed due to the economic downturn that resulted in less money coming in to the Penny for Pinellas fund. Finally, in 2012, all parties agreed to a new funding formula that split $35 million between the municipalities over time. The money would be doled out at $3.5 million a year during fiscal years 2013 to 2016. Additional money would be allocated at a rate of $7 million a year during fiscal years 2017 to 2019. Shares would be determined by how much area each city has of Gulf Boulevard frontage. The BIG-C was given the responsibility for determining if a project is eligible for funding and verifying that the work was done as approved. The cities are responsible for project design, implementation and ongoing maintenance. Cities can apply for reimbursement of costs up to the amount of their share for work done after March 13, 2007. Cretekos is the current BIGC president. Simons heads up the BIG-C committee in charge of project approvals. Cretekos said some of the smaller cities are waiting to begin projects until the amount of their share grows to a larger sum. Small communities with low budgets dont have the money to pay for projects and then apply for reimbursements, he said. Plans are for them to accumulate enough money to do the work. He showed several slides of work done since money became available. He said Clearwater had been reimbursed $6.7 million for work done on its Beach Walk project on Clearwater Beach. Indian Shores received $4 million to help pay for a new city hall, bike lanes and moving of utility poles along Gulf Boulevard. The city installed a new bus shelter and new aesthetically pleasing trashcan covers were added. Redington Beach also used beautification money to pay for moving utility lines underground. Simons assured commissioners that all $35 million would be spent according to approved project plans. He estimated that more substantial projects would begin in year four of the allocations. Smaller communities cant wait for reimbursements, they dont have the money, he said, echoing Cretekos earlier statements. He said Treasure Island was in the planning stage for a $3 million project that the city would fund and then request reimbursement. Commissioner John Morroni brought up the subject of recent pedestrian deaths along Gulf Boulevard. He wanted assurances that projects were focusing on pedestrian safety. The mayors asked if it were possible to allocate additional money sooner than scheduled. We would appreciate it, Cretekos said. It doesnt hurt to ask, said Commissioner Ken Welch.

At that time, the piece will remain nameless, but it will not be untitled. A contest is being held to name the sculpture, with the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation offering prizes of a one-night stay at the DoubleTree Beach Resort in North Redington Beach and a one-year Garden Family membership to the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation to the person whose title is chosen. Suggestions must be submitted by Friday, May 9. Recommended names should be emailed to flbgfoundation@gmail.com. Submissions must include the proposed title of the piece and the full name, phone number and email address of the entrant. The sculpture was borne of a love for the gardens and a vision of elevating the gardens experience with artwork. Former Foundation president Chuck Scaffidi conceived the idea of featuring a stunning piece of art in the small pond outside of the Wedding Garden. More than two years ago, he started working with the Foundations Art-in-the-Garden committee chair Melinda Vargas and board member Erhan Ozey. He and Vargas went on a quest to find the appropriate artist and design and a call-toartists resulted in the appointment of local artists Owen Pach and Jonathan Schork. The artists will be present as the sculpture is dedicated to Scaffidi at the Foundations Diggin the Arts at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 4. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Florida Botanical Gardens and is free to the public. This event brings a wide variety of museums and cultural organizations to the gardens for a fun day of art projects, Plein air competition and an instrument petting zoo. The Florida Botanical Gardens is located at 12520 Ulmerton Road in Largo, with an alternate entrance at 12211 Walsingham Road.

And he marked needs attention to satisfactory on LaSalas mediation and negotiation skills. The rest of his evaluation showed good to excellent scores. Commissioner Susan Latvala gave LaSala good or excellent scores in nearly every category. Commissioner John Morroni was the only commissioner to give the administrator a perfect score excellent in every area. Long mostly gave the administrator satisfactory scores. She circled needs attention in the areas of responsiveness advocacy, media relations and interpersonal communication. She marked good for budgeting, financial analysis, strategic planning and presentation skills. Commissioner Charlie Justice scored LaSala as satisfactory to excellent in every category, with excellent marks for function/operational expertise, operational planning, initiative and risk taking, budgeting and integrity. Seel gave the administrator the most points for satisfactory performance, marking excellent for his technological literacy only. Roche found nothing excellent about LaSalas work in 2013, nor did he mark anything as needing attention, although he did create a new spot between needs attention, the bottom of the scale, and satisfactory, for several of his answers. In 2014, LaSalas composite score fell to 70 percent. Seel marked needs attention, the lowest grade, on nearly every area except vision, presentation skills and media relations, which she marked as satisfactory. She marked good for technological literacy, budgeting and financial analysis. Susan Latvala was more generous in her scores, giving LaSala an excellent or good in every category. She did remark under the vision category that LaSala does an excellent job within the organization not as well with community. She also said he needed to practice presenting at a level that everyone can understand. While Morroni did not give LaSala a perfect score, he gave him more excellent marks than other commissioners. He marked good for facilitative leadership, remarking that the outcome of the EMS debate would be an indicator. He also marked good for mediation/negotiation, commenting, Sometimes it doesnt come out as neutral all the time. He also marked good for citizen service. He thanked LaSala for his hard work and dedication. It seems we are finally tackling some tough issues with the support of the majority of the board, he wrote. Justice scored LaSala as satisfactory, good or excellent in his responses. He included written comments stating that the administrator has done an outstanding job maintaining the machinations of the county functions during a time of slow economic recovery and structural transition. There are some areas of concern; challenges that exist, he wrote. The administrator needs to improve communication. Communication to the external communities that show respect for the validity of others opinions; communication with staff that shows that change is made with purpose and intent and not for the sake of change; and communication with the Board to better align the goals and plans both short term and long term. Recent circumstances with the EMS issue, the strategic planning and the healthy communities discussions exposed areas in need of greater attention in order for greater successes. Long scored LaSala between satisfactory and excellent and included comments on most pages. She said he could do a better job of building partnerships and/or meeting with community groups in order to continue relationships the county has taken decades to develop. Bob has a stubborn streak that interferes with his good judgment, she wrote. Bob must work on his demeanor during public meetings to ensure respect and civility toward our citizens, as well as the elected officials. She praised him for his work in organizational planning and management. Bob does an outstanding job with strategic short and long range planning, she wrote. His commitment and dedication to financial stability is outstanding. Welch scored LaSala as satisfactory, good or excellent in every area except organizational integrity, which he marked between needs attention and satisfactory. Im concerned with the loss of key personnel and the impact of personnel decisions on internal and external relationships and collaboration, Welch wrote. I am also increasingly concerned with the number of ongoing conflicts and/or disputes with key community partners collaboration with our partners is a priority. He praised the administrator for his strategic planning, the countys website and the use of eTownHall meetings for citizen interaction. Budget and forecasting are excellent, he wrote. Strategic planning implementation depends on collaboration, staff retention and communication. Roche had little good to say about LaSala. His scores mirrored Seels with most coming in somewhere between needs attention and satisfactory. He did mark good for function/operational expertise, and a spot between good and excellent for technological literacy. Roches typed comments were among the most scathing. He listed a number of problems with how the administrator has performed his job and his understanding of the countys citizens. He said LaSala appears to favor a conspiratorial us versus them environment, frustrates easily when questioned, often rejects and rebuts opposing or differing viewpoints and/or alternative approaches, and tends to dismiss or obfuscate rather than consider and incorporate. He listed several issues, including downtown Palm Harbor, the Pinellas County Library Cooperative, EMS, fire services, indigent care contracts, animal services, stormwater and citizen interactions, as having been handled in a spirit of divide and conquer rather than coalesce and achieve. He also expressed concern about a pattern of discarding the value of institutional experience and knowledge, in favor of outside hiring and promotion. Seel said she would begin work immediately to appoint a designee for LaSala to report to and make plans for beginning a search for a new administrator. She did not share any additional information. Assistant County Administrator Mark Woodard served in the administrators role during the Tuesday meeting. The commission is expected to appoint an interim administrator at the April 22 work session. Before leaving the April 15 meeting, LaSala said he was proud of the countys employees. This is a terrific group of employees who try to do their very best each and every day, and I sincerely thank them, he said. Further, I would also be remiss if I did not personally acknowledge my executive staff, and I include those who have been reassigned as well. Each of those individuals brought very real talent and a true commitment to public service. I thank them as well. Again, it has been my privilege to serve as your administrator. LASALA, from page 1A

Suite 101 Palm Harbor, FL 346843 Convenient Locations to Serve You 042414 041014 Mom shares can-do attitude for making a differencealmost a month of learning because her class was in a portable. When it rains, the kids are doubled up with classes in the regular buildings. When this happens, teachers cant teach and the children arent learning. Its a big problem especially when your school goes down a letter grade because of lower test scores. I was able to bring this to the attention of our school superintendent at an education forum and now school officials are looking into this. I think sometimes we just need to take action and find out whom to ask so we can get things done. A lot of times people dont know theres a problem unless we bring it to their attention. Dont be afraid to call your city, county and school officials to help you. I am not saying that every time I try and do something, it gets done. There are times when things dont get done. To me its important to at least try, so you can feel at least youve done your part. Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 8 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2Mom FamilyFun.blogspot.com.Recently, my husband commented that I seem to be able to get things done at our daughters school and in the community that most people wouldnt know they could do. I thought about what he said and decided that maybe I could share a little inspiration about how to make a difference. Its all too often we see things and complain, but dont take action to try and do something about it. Like most of you, I am your every day citizen. I try to be active in my kids school and in the community. I volunteer at the school and am on the PTA. I am also involved in the chamber of commerce for my work and recently have taken part in the citys citizen academy. I want our schools and community to be a great place to live, work and play for my family and me. My instinct is when I see something that I think can be improved or needs to be fixed, I call whoever is in charge and try to get something done. Maybe its the reporter in me or because I worked for city government and know basically how things work. I know that, usually, I can at least get a response. Ill give you a few examples. When I moved to my house several years ago, there werent sidewalks on one of the main roads that I would take my kids for a wagon ride. It was very dangerous because part of the road had sidewalks and part of it didnt. I decided to take some pictures and write our city officials about why I thought there needed to be sidewalks. The city looked at what I showed them and said they had money in their sidewalk improvement fund and put in the sidewalks. I was delighted. Recently there was a lot of rain water on the fields where my daughters play their softball games and they were covered with mosquitoes. After playing two games and having the kids eaten by mosquitoes, I looked up mosquito control and emailed them about the problem. The officials emailed me back and had the fields sprayed within a day. Thank you, mosquito control! Another example is my girls school. Like most schools in Pinellas County, there are lots of portables that are used as classrooms. Last year, my daughter, who was in third grade at the time, lost Mom 2 MomKadi Hendricks Tubbs IRB presents annual art and ale event INDIAN ROCKS BEACH The Rotary Club of IRB presents its second annual Art and Ale event, sponsored by BarProducts.com and the Pinellas Education Foundation, Saturday, May 10, 6 to 10 p.m., at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 11220 Oakhurst Road, Largo.

DIABETES OR PROSTATE CANCER? 020614 Dont let bed bugs infest your homeRemember the old saying, Sleep tight and dont let the bed bugs bite? It wasnt always a cute bedtime rhyme. In the not too distant past, the tiny, nocturnal bloodsuckers were a serious problem in Florida, across the country and throughout the world. Thanks to DDT and Malathion, they were largely eradicated in most of the developed countries by the 1940s, but if recent reports are any indication, lots of people arent sleeping too tight these days. Bed bug cases have been on the rise since the mid-1990s up almost 500 percent just in the last few years. They have been finding their way back into hotels (upscale and otherwise), cruise ships, dormitories, movie theaters, nursing homes, hospitals and homes. Regarding the latter, mansions can be as vulnerable as their more modest neighbors. The common denominator is usually people, though they also feed on the blood of birds, bats and rodents. Bed bugs and their eggs hitchhike on such things as clothes, backpacks, used furniture, bedding and in the luggage of travelers. They love heat and darkness. And they love sleeping humans. Unless you know what to look for, you might not know you have these uninvited guests until you have a heavy infestation or an allergic reaction to the bed bug saliva that can cause itchy and inflamed welts hours or days later. While you sleep, hungry bed bugs will come out of their hiding places, suck your blood, then scurry back under cover, commonly on or near beds and couches. They inject a fluid into the bites to keep the blood flowing and this fluid, like mosquito bites, is what causes the skin to itch and become swollen. Usually a bed bug hitchhiker is an egg or a pregnant female capable of starting a new infestation upon her arrival at your home. She can produce 200 to 500 eggs in her lifetime, laying 10 to 50 eggs at a time. The eggs, which hatch in one to three weeks, are the size of the tip of a pen, very hard to see without a magnifying glass. When fully grown, bed bugs can be about 1/4-inch long. Adults can live for six months or more without a blood meal. Because bed bugs are usually nocturnal and so good at hiding, they are difficult to spot, especially when an infestation is small. For early detection, which makes control cheaper and more successful, set up a catch trap. Google How to Make a Bed Bug Interceptor Trap out of Common Household Items. Encase your mattress and box springs to make it easier to inspect for bugs. There are other monitoring devices, such as sticky traps, which can be placed around beds and sofas, as well as carbon dioxide and heat attractants. Aside from bite symptoms, you also can look for fecal droppings and blood spots on bedding or on walls around baseboards. Some pest control companies use bed bug-sniffing dogs, but a number of false positives and false negatives have been reported. If bed bugs are found there are several ways to control them, with the best results achieved by using a combination of methods. There are many steps that can be taken by homeowners to optimize the possibility for successful control. First, vacuum the carpets, furniture and any visible bed bugs. Secure the vacuum bag in a zip lock baggy and put it in the freezer for at least a week. Place bed legs in plastic catch traps to thwart bed bug mobility, and encase your mattress and box springs. All bedding should be laundered with soap and a borax additive and dried at a high temperature. Any clothing, pillows and drapery that cant be cleaned in this manner should be dry-cleaned. Dresser drawers should be emptied out so insecticides can be sprayed under the drawers. For detailed information regarding insecticides and other control methods, Google Bed Bugs and Blood-Sucking Conenose or visit your local University of Florida Extension, which is located at 12520 Ulmerton Road in Largo. We are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To speak with a horticulturist, call 5822110 from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays.

Growing WiseJane Morse Better fishing conditions expectedWith a tough week of weather behind us, we are all looking forward to better fishing conditions that should be in store for us this week and through the weekend. With water temperatures still hanging below 70 degrees its safe to think that the best fishing of the season is still ahead. Light winds should clean our nearshore waters up for this weekends fishing. Kingfish remain high on the list of target species. When conditions have been right for kingfish, the majority of the fish have been somewhere in the 3 to 5 mile range. Purely speculation at this point especially considering the amount of wind we had last weekend, but it would probably be a good idea to start in these depths. Blue runners, large pilchards and threadfin herring have been the ticket for these 10 to 20 pound fish. The larger fish will most likely be found out deeper, say 80 feet and out, or shallower in spots like the shipping channel. Inshore, redfish remain the one constant. Improving new moon tides will give anglers the opportunity to target these fish at both the high and low tidal stages. Entry points along the outer edges of the flats are potential low tide hotspots. Lightly weighted soft plastic jigs in darker colors have been working well in this scenario. When the tide peaks later in the morning, its time to start working those oyster mounds for pockets of fish. Corking a live shrimp and casting it around the edges of the oyster mound is one of my favorite ways to fish. Periods of stable weather have allowed for the bait to congregate around many of the local bridges at night. Working the shadow lines with a fast sinking cast net has yielded a variety of bait that can be used both inshore and offshore. Pilchards, the preferred live bait for trout, redfish and snook have been a bit scarce thus far this spring. Being resourceful however and utilizing what bait is available can still produce good catches of quality fish.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

The request was supported by thousands of anglers and tournament directors after the recent closure of the Southern Kingfish Association. Our focus, that of the Old Salt Fishing Foundation, has always been and always will be, do what is best for all anglers, said president Tom Verdensky. The Old Salt Kingmasters National Kingfish Series is just that, a tournament series for the anglers. The past sanctioning bodys focus was primarily on the southeastern United States. We will not only reunite these tournament directors and anglers but revive and combine them with the synergies of the Old Salts. As part of the new series, the Kingmasters World Championship will be held in May 2015 in Madeira Beach. One of the driving forces in the move was Brazilian angler Guilherme Rodrigues who landed a 74.13pound king mackerel off Brazils Itzcolomi Islands. The catch may qualify him for a line class world record from the IGFA. This catch brought our attention for the need to add an international division to the series, said Verdensky. Discussions with event organizers are already being put in place from Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, Central and South America to name a few. Speaking from the city of Madeira Beachs perspective, the city has been impressed with the Old Salts in how they conduct their massive fishing tournaments, said Madeira Beach City Manager Shane Crawford. I have personally worked with them on an ongoing basis and their professionalism, reputation and vigor make their events the biggest and the best in the area. They constantly continue to amaze me. The world championship also will be accompanied by a sponsor and director summit. For more information, please visit www.oldsaltfish ing.org, email info@oldsaltfishing.org or call 216-6601. Photo by JIM LAYFIELDTussock moth caterpillars crawl along a chain link fence under oak trees on the property of Walsingham Elementary School in Largo, April 13. According to the University of Florida Entomology and Nematology Department, tussock moth caterpillars emerge from eggs most often laid in shade trees, especially oaks, the previous spring by adult moths. It is not uncommon for them to fall out of trees onto unsuspecting people below. They also may hang from a silk string to reach the ground. After two to four weeks of growth, the caterpillars spin their cocoons. They emerge from the pupal stage as adult moths about two weeks later. The male moths fly to the flightless females to mate, and the females lay their eggs on the cocoons recently vacated. The cycle repeats the following spring when the caterpillars emerge from the eggs.Caterpillar gathering

Although the children may visit often, typically they are not present when it comes time for mom or dads doctors visits or other appointments they attend for their well being. One of the most difficult things for patients, is knowing how to ask questions of a doctor. You owe it to yourself to ask these questions, especially when it comes to prescribed medications. Take a list of your current medications and vitamin intake along with you. It is important to review each drug recommended and learn of all the side effects that are a possibility. Because time is limited it is important to make a list of any questions you have pertaining to your health so you are sure to get your answers before walking out the door. Jot down the answers if you fear you may not remember them. Invite a friend or caregiver you trust to go on doctor visits along with you for support. This person does not need to speak for you but their presence may ensure that someone is caring for you. This relative or friend can help you remember the key points made by your doctor. If you're not sure you understand what is happening, ask questions until you feel comfortable. It is important to know all of your options when diagnosed with a problem. If tests are recommended, be sure to ask what they entail so you are comfortable if you choose to go forward with them. Learn if there are side effects to these tests. It is quite normal to feel worried about speaking frankly with your doctor, but your doctor will be able to be more sensitive to your needs if you inform him of your concerns. He or she is there to help you with all of your medical concerns. It is important to be assertive and to gather all the knowledge you can regarding your health.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, April 24, 2014After being sued by the Wall Street Journal, the government finally released its Medicare reimbursement data last week. It included the less-than-stunning revelation that 28 of the 100 doctors who received the largest payments in 2012 were from Florida. No other state came close. And no physician in the country billed Medicare for bigger bucks than Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, a West Palm Beach ophthalmologist who operates several clinics and is tight with a powerful Democratic senator. Melgen got almost $21 million from Medicare in 2012. (No, you dont need your vision checked $20,827,341 is the actual number, for one year.) Records show Melgen filed claims for 894 patients and 92,000 procedures, meaning Medicare paid him approximately $11,700 for every eyeball that was eyeballed by him and his staff. Even in Florida, the mecca for Medicare tricksters, Melgens billing habits drew notice. The government had already forced him to give back $8.9 million from 2007 and 2008, alleging he overbilled for injectable Lucentis, an expensive medication that combats macular degeneration. The disorder is common in the elderly, and nationwide the treatment costs Medicare $1 billion a year. In 2012, Melgen reported administering more than 37,000 doses of Lucentis in South Florida. Currently hes under investigation for possible fraud, and twice FBI agents have swarmed his offices in search of evidence. His attorney says hes done nothing wrong, and has taken action to recover the nearly $9 million that Melgen repaid the agency in charge of Medicare and Medicaid. The doctor has an important ally in Sen. Robert Menendez, the New Jersey Democrat, who has traveled on Melgens private jet and hung out at his posh spread in the Dominican Republican. When Melgen first got in trouble, Menendez called the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to defend his pals prolific billing. Another time the senator argued in favor of a company owned by Melgen in a dispute over a seaport contract in the Dominican Republic.For his part, the doctor donated $700,000 to a Democratic political action committee that gave $582,000 to Menendezs re-election efforts. So far, Melgens friendship with Menendez has failed to deflect the FBIs interest.Second on the national scoreboard of Medicares top billers is Dr. Asad Qamar, an Ocala cardiologist who was paid $18.2 million in 2012. He told the New York Times that his charges are fair, and that the sum is so large partly because he works in an outpatient facility for which the government pays added fees. Like Melgen, Qamar is an enthusiastic donor to Democrats, including President Obama. He gave more than $100,000 to the Democratic National Committee, and distributed other contributions to congressional candidates in five states, including Florida. After federal auditors began examining Qamars bills, the doctor hired lobbyists to contact more than a dozen U.S. lawmakers, seeking relief from the scrutiny. The auditors put an astronomical burden on us, in terms of manpower, he told the Times. An astronomic burden caused by astronomical billing. Any physician who rakes in $18 million from Medicare in 12 months deserves special attention, because such a massive volume of medical claims definitely isnt business as usual. In fact, according to a Times analysis, only about 2 percent of doctors collected almost 25 percent of the countrys Medicare payouts in 2012. Expanding that graph, just 25 percent of doctors accounted for 75 percent of Medicares total spending, which reached $77 billion that year. Its hardly a shocker that Florida leads the way. No place in the nation hosts more Medicare fraud prosecutions, a grim distinction. The good news is that the conviction rate is high; the bad news is that we could quadruple the number of prosecutors, and theyd still be overworked. Meanwhile, soaring Medicare costs cut deeper and deeper into federal tax revenues. The program is so huge that it practically defies effective auditing, but certainly a much better job of that could be done. Publicizing the payment database is a start. Some medical practices are more complex than others, and the numbers only tell part of the story for each physician on the list. However, its more than a statistical blip when two doctors collect a total of $39 million, more than hundreds of other practitioners in those same specialties added together. California, which has twice the population of Florida, had only 10 doctors in the top 100 Medicare billers, compared to our stellar 28. Its not that Florida has more sick and elderly people than California, because we dont. We just happen to attract more opportunists.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132.Is there a medically-recognized ailment known as magazine addiction? If not, perhaps there should be. Victims of this ailment can be easily recognized, usually by the postal workers who must lug the magazines to the addressees doorstep and try to somehow fit the periodicals into the mailbox. Magazine addiction has several causes, although an average addict may not manifest every symptom. Loneliness and a sense of isolation can be a trigger. If I feel disconnected to the human race, the arrival of a dozen or more magazines each month can make me feel plugged in to the world. If Sally flunked out of high school and is tired of hearing her better-educated neighbors talk about high-falutin topics such as Vladimir Putin and the federal reserve, she may succumb to the notion that compulsive reading of many magazines will elevate her into membership in Mensa. Good luck with that, Sally. If you randomly examine, say, 20 different magazines, youll be struck by a disillusioning fact: only a few will have much worthwhile content. Many if not most publications are nothing more than advertising vehicles. The publishers dont really want to inform or educate you and me. They want us to rush out and buy the mostly unnecessary products they advertise. To help create or feed our addiction, many publishers lower their yearly subscription rates to basement levels. Each week I receive magazine offers so low in price I almost feel guilty not to subscribe. For 10 bucks or less I can get a years worth of The Duck Hunters Gazette or the beautifully illustrated Slim Butt, telling women (and men, I suppose) 80 ways to make their fannies appear slender. The publishers dont survive on the money we send them for our subscriptions; they get most of their profits from advertising. And that depends on how high they can boost their circulation. When it comes to spying on the habits of Americans, the CIA and National Security Agency are pikers compared to the publishing Mafia. Although a magazine may assure you that it will not give out your address, dont believe it. Lets say that in January you subscribe to Mortuary Monthly. Within weeks youll be getting subscription offers from Modern Gravestones and Funeral Wear. Soon will come notices from Cremation World magazine. A year ago I made the mistake of subscribing to a publication of the Harvard medical school. Today Im on the subscription target list for the Mayo Clinic, the Hebrew Colonic Digest, Prevention magazine, Fitness, Womens Health, Mens Health, Diet Tips for Astronauts and a new book, How I Survived a Month of Lithuanian Cuisine. If I followed all the advice in these publications, Id be the healthiest man in my psychiatric ward. Some magazines can be worth subscribing to just for the gifts they offer. I have a closet half-filled with jackets, duffel bags and overnight cases, all of them bearing the logos of the publications I signed up for. Although a magazine addict will seldom go bankrupt from his (or her) habit, he will eventually wake up to the fact that hes running out of spare time. Before his addiction took hold, he had a social life, he exercised, loved to cook, played with his children, attended prayer meetings, all that good stuff. As his magazines piled up, he gradually abandoned all that. Today he devotes all his discretionary hours (or minutes) to reading the eight or 10 publications that have arrived during the past week. Except the magazine addict doesnt really read. He merely skims and browses. Theres not enough time to actually concentrate on the details. If he takes the time to do so, hell be cutting into the time remaining to attack the other stories or publications that await. Recovery from magazine addiction often comes when the subscriber stops to ask this question: Do I really need, or want, to know all this stuff? Thats what happened to me a few years ago as I plowed through The Economist, a superb British weekly newsmagazine. If I spared four hours on each issue, I was plugged into not just the big stories such as a new pope, but also such throat-grabbers as the plunging of eggplant prices in Regurgistan. I finally took my fingers off the pulses of the world, and Ive been much happier since.I still love magazines, and I dont mean this column as an advisory against them. But like food, sex or good conversation, there should be a limit. Once we decide to draw the lines, life can still have just as much meaning as when we were on our reading rampage.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSSo much for one man, one voteEditor: As a nation we find ourselves blessed with an abundance of that element that has eluded mankind since civilization first emerged. I refer here to security from those who would harm us. With the vast expanse of the great oceans separating us from potential enemies, our shores seem inviolable. On and below the seas, in the air and even in space we have created a seemingly impenetrable umbrella of protection. Combined with our unparalleled ability to retaliate, in kind, only the foolish would consider engaging us militarily. In spite of this shield, we continue focusing our attention outwardly when searching for danger, when it should be apparent the imminent threat to America lies from within. I refer here to the fact many of those freedoms and rights we cherished in the past are today merely an illusion. The prime and most significant example of this is the belief the citizens of this nation elect those who will represent them in congress, and that it is these same citizens those elected intend to serve. In reality from the moment our representatives step off the plane and onto the tarmac in Washington, and in most cases long before, they and their vote have already been co-opted by those with the financial wherewithal to pay the asking price for their allegiance. In truth, their election was not a result of conscious support from the electorate, it came about because of the vast sums of money funneled into their campaigns by the ultra wealthy, and anyone naive enough to think these people didnt expect a return on their investment would do well to seek permanent residency in Fantasy Land. As if this was not bad enough, it is about to get worse. Three recent decisions by the conservative led John Roberts Court have seen to that. Consider the ramifications of their rulings regarding the intrusion of money into politics. I refer specifically to the decisions that ruled in effect, Corporations are people, PACs could not be limited in political spending and now their most recent ruling, that individuals could not be limited in what they donate to campaigns. That the court feels money is entitled to a vote is a given. Sadly, no one from the right is on record questioning these decisions. It gives one reason to speculate as to the attitude of conservatives had the court ruled that in future elections each eligible voter would be entitled to one vote for every $1 of their net worth. While on the surface this proposal may seem farfetched this is exactly what the court has implied as a result of the three decisions they rendered. The courts willingness to ignore the corrupting influence of money in politics has opened the floodgates. This will eventually result in the destruction of the system that for so long assured we would remain a Democratic Republic. That is, if this hasnt already occurred. America was founded on the premise of one man, one vote. The courts recent decisions in effect sell to the highest bidder the right to disenfranchise the average citizen from that promise. This conclusion is based on the fact the wealthiest citizens, those who now hold a virtual stranglehold on our government by virtue of their financial advantage, will most certainly put an end to the dreams of the authors of the American Constitution, the dream of government of the people, by the people and for the people, a premise we cherished since the moment we were founded. Robert Shaw Madeira Beach Saunders ignores facts on ObamacareRe: Obamacare: Just magical thinking, April 10Editor: Once again, TBN newspapers show their true colors: anything to discredit a black man in the White House! Had the TBN done its due diligence as responsible journalists, you would have discovered that this article by Debra Saunders ignores the facts and the truth regarding the Affordable Care Act. Worse, the article goes on to distort the realities of both the ACA and healthcare in the U.S.A., the most expensive for-profit healthcare system in the world! Any attempt to right the wrongs of the U.S. healthcare debacle results in floods of money to create lies and distorted opinions from the insurance industry, the healthcare industry, and ultra-right politicos, whose siren songs lure the gullible. Here is one link, out of a host of links, that afford responsible journalists with the facts and the truth: www.politifact.com/truth-o -meter/statements/2014/mar/18/john-boehner/john-boehner-says -more-people-are-uninsured-obamac. Mike MacDonald ClearwaterEditors note: Tampa Bay Newspapers strives to print columns from conservative as well as liberal journalists on its Viewpoints pages. The columnists opinions do not necessarily reflect those of the newspaper. Light rail: An inexpensive way to goEditor: Although I am sorry to see that planned transportation improvements, if approved by voters in November, will increase the sales tax, hurting some folks, they also will help them by providing inexpensive rides to distant jobs. When I was entering high school in 1944, I lived on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio. I chose to attend an all boys Catholic High School on the far east side of Cleveland. No problem: I took a bus to downtown and then light rail to the school area. Many years later, I returned to Cleveland, having retired from the U.S. Marine Corps (1968). My job required much air travel. Fortunately, I could drive to the light rail station a few blocks from my home, leave the car there without charge and speed to the airport. I travel for pleasure now, but have a friend to ride with me to Tampa Airport and take my car home to avoid large parking fees. I take the shuttle home, but light rail would be preferred. Bob McEwen, Indian ShoresMissed opportunity on bridge workEditor: Two articles in the Beach Beacon struck a nerve with me this week. 1. Park Boulevard bridge repairs delayed Last October the county announced the bridge would be closed in June 2014. Wouldnt all these documented delays in the article had been in the process already at the time they announced the anticipated closure? The Project Engineer is just now finalizing a contract and getting it out for bids? Seems like that would have been almost completed when they announced the initial closure dates. The real issue is now it appears the bridge will be closed as schools resume in the fall so school buses will need to be re-routed and northern tourists, part-time residents return for the winter adding additional traffic. Seems like an opportunity missed here to complete the repairs when the least amount of impact to the community would have been realized. 2. Residents urged to use sidewalks The captain makes a good point but where this accident occurred at Spitzer Park at the intersection of 176th Avenue East and 176th Terrace Drive E. there are no sidewalks. The only sidewalk in the area is on 175th Avenue East To flip a full size Cadillac in a residential area, speed had to be the issue, hopefully more patrols will remedy that. Using sidewalks is always the recommended. But I hope the captain and the Indian Shores Police Department recognizes the more important issue in this accident was excessive speed and speeding in general in our residential neighborhoods.

Health newsBayCare Hospitals introduce new endoscopy equipmentCLEARWATER Patients in the Tampa Bay area needing advanced diagnostic endoscopic ultrasounds now may benefit from new technology which can mean less time in a procedure and a more detailed diagnosis thanks to a new endoscopy processor at three BayCare hospitals that offers the latest, most precise imaging technology. Located at Morton Plant, St. Anthonys and St. Josephs hospitals, the new endoscopy processor, also called an EUS or Endoscopic Ultrasound, is used if a standard endoscopy exam has determined the need for further investigation. EUS may be used to evaluate stages of cancer, chronic pancreatitis or other disorders of the pancreas. It is used to study: abnormalities or tumors in organs, including the gallbladder and liver; bumps in the intestinal wall; or the muscles of the lower rectum and anal canal. EUS also is used in diagnosis and staging of tumors of the esophagus, and in the diagnosis and staging of certain tumors of the chest cavity. The EUS technology offers radial and linear scanning. The 360 degree scanning offers the advantage of a full panoramic view and a Doppler functionality to display blood flow dynamics inside the blood vessels. This adds valuable information to the examination, simplifying the orientation within the gastrointestinal tract and therefore speeding up the examination time. The linear scanning technology provides a scanning range of 180 degrees. Linear scanning technology is designed to continuously visualize the progression of needle insertion into the tissue when performing a EUS-Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) procedure to collect tissue samples or other therapeutic procedures.Local ostomy group to meetST.

PETERSBURG The National Institutes of Health recently awarded $747,000 to Eckerd College to fund computational modeling of how certain cancer-fighting drugs interact in the human body. It is the first NIH grant ever awarded to Eckerd College. Assistant Professor of Chemistry Joseph Larkin, Ph.D., will use the grant to develop methods to study boron-based pharmaceuticals that fight resistant cancers, such as pancreatic and ovarian cancers. The NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute K22 Career Development Award will fund three years of study, beginning this summer. Eckerd College students will work with Larkin on the project, along with graduate students and faculty from the University of South Florida. The research will focus not only on how the body interacts with boronbased drugs but how they work, with the goal to develop methods of early cancer detection. Larkin received his Ph.D. is from the University of Georgia with a concentration in quantum chemistry. His post-doctoral training was at the NIH, where he worked on computational methods for studying biochemical systems over different time and length scales. Application of these new methods focused on therapies containing boron and how they react with enzymes in the body.Suncoast Pediatrics to sponsor Playing UnpluggedLARGO Suncoast Pediatrics will sponsor Playing Unplugged on Saturday, April 26, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Largo Central Park, 101 Third St. SE.

After signing a recording contract with Columbia Records, Money burst onto the scene with his eponymous debut album in 1977. Fans immediately fell in love with Moneys sound, and the album, which went double platinum, featured hits like Baby Hold On and Two Tickets to Paradise. Money followed the success of his debut album with a stream of Top 40 hits, as well as some of the eras most creative videos for songs like Think Im in Love and Shakin. In 1986, Money released Cant Hold Back, which featured the classic, Grammy-Nominated duet with Ronnie Spector, Take Me Home Tonight. The song reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album went platinum and also featured the hit I Wanna Go Back. The Romantics formed in 1977 and are known for having created some of the most influential and beloved rock and roll of all time. Boasting a Detroit sound, The Romantics favored short hair, short songs and red leather suits. The bands self-titled debut album, released in 1980, featured the hit single What I Like About You. Orleans is best known as the s pop-rock band that authored iconic hits such as Still the One, Dance With Me and Love Takes Time. Now entering their 41st year of live performances, Orleans has produced a body of work spanning 16 albums and several DVDs. For more than 30 years, members of The Atlanta Rhythm Section have entertained audiences all over the world with their hits. The members of Atlanta Rhythm Section originally came together as a session band at Studio One, an Atlanta area studio recording artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Al Kooper, Dickey Betts and .38 Special. The band released 15 albums and was paired with contemporaries Lynyrd Skynyrd as the successors to the Allman Brothers carrying the mantle of Southern Rock in the late 70s. Performing songs that were more musically diverse and having hits that had a softer, pop flavor, they had a sound all their own. With multiple gold and platinum albums to their credit, the band had top hits such as So Into You, Imaginary Lover, Doraville, Im Not Gonna Let It Bother Me Tonight, Champagne Jam, Angel, Do It Or Die and Spooky. Since 1986 Kirk McEwen has been fronting his own band and opening for the likes of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Cinderalla and Sister Hazel.

Rodney Atkinss well-known singles, If Youre Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows) and Watching You, spent weeks at the top of the country music chart and were ranked as the top country songs of 2006 and 2007. Atkins platinum album, If Youre Going Through Hell also produced two more No. 1 singles. Atkins has received six nominations from the Academy of Country Music and two from the Country Music Association, winning Top New Male Vocalist from the former in 2006. Cole Swindells career began with his well-know single Chillin It. Swindell released his selftitled debut album in February of 2014 and has been opening for Luke Bryan on his Thats My Kind of Party 2014 Tour. The Swon Brothers (Zach and Colton) first hit the national radar charming fans with their incredible sibling harmonies and fun-loving personalities as finalists on Team Blake in Season 4 of NBCs The Voice. Newly signed to the Arista Nashville record label, the brothers returned to The Voice in December of 2013 to perform Later On, the first taste of the Muskogee, Okla., natives upcoming album, helmed by producer Mark Bright. LoCash Cowboys, the compellingly charismatic duo comprised of Chris Lucas and Preston Brush, have been winning over fans in droves these past seven years with their high energy and over-the-top live performances. Lucas and Brush co-wrote, with Jaren Johnston, Keith Urbans multi-week No. 1 hit You Gonna Fly, which catapulted to the top of the Country radio charts in a rapid 19-week ascent. With Chris Janson and Danny Myrick, LoCash Cowboys also co-wrote Tim McGraws hit Truck Yeah. Natalie Stovall boasts breathtaking vocals and larger-thanlife stage presence. Her bands turbo-charged, take-no prisoners live shows match her energy. Natalie Stovall and The Drive are realizing their dream each day as they perform for fans around the world and finish up their debut record, set to release in 2014. Stovall has been playing professionally since she was 10, and performed everywhere from the White House to the Oprah Winfrey Show. Her musical influences might span from the high-energy shows of Shania Twain and Garth Brooks to legends like Michael Jackson and Aerosmith, but make no mistake, her country roots run deep. Blackjack Billy is an American country rock group based in Nashville. They describe their music as Redneck Rock. Their debut single, The Booze Cruise was independently released in March 2013. With plenty of ambition, raw talent and business savvy, John King catapulted himself from a little mountain town in Georgias Habersham County into the spotlight opening for award-winning artists, playing over 150 dates per year, prior to having a booking agent. King took a serious interest in guitar when he realized that he could figure out how to play his favorite songs, but then went on to modify them. His dedication and tenacity paid off in opening slots for nationally recognized, award-winning artists; a feat that is virtually unheard of without a booking agent. In 2013, Black River Entertainment signed John King to their artist roster; along with Dancing with the Stars champion and acclaimed singer/songwriter Kellie Pickler and country music superstar Craig Morgan. Concertgoers may bring lawn chairs and blankets as well as one sealed bottle of water per person. Not permitted at the concert are pets (except assistance animals), grills or open flames, glass containers or bottles, coolers, food or drinks, unauthorized vendors, tents, canopies, umbrellas, audio/video recording devices, throwing objects (footballs, Frisbees, etc.), inline skating and skateboards, littering and personal fireworks.Concerts at REH, Capitol TheatreIncluded in the Fun n Sun Celebration schedule of events are two performances by living legends.

For Damien, every day is a fight against corruption and although it isnt apparent at first, he finds an unlikely ally in one of the last good souls of Brick Mansions, Lino, played by David Belle. Stuck in the unpredictable and dangerous concrete jungle of Brick Mansions, Lino battles every day to live an honest life. A vigilante in his own right, he fights for a better overall community. Upon first meeting, their differences get the better of them and the thought of being allies seems nearly impossible. That is until Damien and Lino realize they share a mutual enemy: Tremaine. The duo comes from completely different worlds, whose paths never should have crossed. But when Tremaine kidnaps Linos girlfriend, it sets in motion a chain of adrenaline-spiking events forcing the two to work together. Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless, acrobatic ex-convict, and together attempt to stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. In the process, they learn that they have more in common than they initially realized. A grudging respect for one another leads to friendship as they begin to realize that what happens inside and outside of Brick Mansions is not what it seems.The Quiet OnesGenre: Supernatural horror Cast: Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne and Olivia Cooke Director: John Pogue Rated: PG-13 Tucked away in an estate outside of London, Professor Coupland along with a team of university students conduct an experiment on Jane Harper, a young girl who harbors unspeakable secrets. What dark forces they uncover are more terrifying than any of them expected. Inspired by true events, the film stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke and is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.For No Good ReasonGenre: Documentary Cast: Ralph Steadman and Johnny Depp Director: Charlie Paul Rated: R Ralph Steadman is the last of the original Gonzo visionaries. Made over the course of 15 years, For No Good Reason explores the connection between life and art through the eyes of seminal British artist, Ralph Steadman. Insightful, humorous, and visually stunning, this is a study in honesty, friendship and the ambition that drives an artist. Ralphs rise to prominence began in the early 1970s during the fallout from the love and hope that had swept the western world during the 1960s. This legendary time for music, literature, art and philosophy was the catalyst, along with his developing relationship with writer Hunter S. Thompson, for Ralph to express and chart the wreckage that followed; a large-scale disintegration of a demoralized counter-culture. His art gained recognition in the press and popular-culture publications, both in the U.K. and U.S., for its bold comment on his fiercely heart-felt politics. The film is a richly creative, visual feast about the power and importance of art to achieve Steadmans aim I learnt to draw...to try to change the world. Director Charlie Paul spent 15 years meticulously amassing the footage and creating the remarkable animations for the film to match the same anarchic energy, anger and free spirit of Steadmans pictures. Through Johnny Depps lead in this intimate portrait, we are able to reach to the heart of what make this artist tick, his friendships and fallings out, his love for art and his passion for civil liberties. For No Good Reason is riot of stories and images as we take a trip through the wild and dark days of Steadmans time with Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas writer Hunter S. Thompson, the Rumble in the Jungle; gun fights with literary giant William S. Burroughs and his fiercely heart-felt politics. This is an inventive, energetic, occasionally harrowing, but inspiring and uplifting film with contributions from Terry Gilliam, Richard E. Grant and music from Slash, All American Rejects, Jason Mraz, James Blake, Ed Harcourt and Crystal Castles, all For No Good Reason.The German DoctorGenre: Drama and thriller Cast: Alex Brendemhl, Natalia Oreiro, Diego Peretti, Elena Roger, Guillermo Pfening, Alan Daicz and Florencia Bado Director: Lucia Puenzo Rated: PG-13 Patagonia, 1960. A German doctor (Alex Brendemhl) meets an Argentinean family and follows them on a long desert road to a small town where the family will be starting a new life. Eva (Natalia Oreiro), Enzo (Diego Peretti) and their three children welcome the doctor into their home and entrust their young daughter, Lilith (Florencia Bado), to his care, not knowing that they are harboring one of the most dangerous criminals in the world. At the same time, Israeli agents are desperately looking to bring the German doctor to justice. Based on filmmaker Luca Puenzos fifth novel, the story follows Josef Mengele, the Angel of Death, a German SS officer and a physician at the Auschwitz concentration camp, in the years he spent hiding, along with many other Nazis, in South America following his escape from Germany. Mengele was considered to be one of WWIIs most heinous Nazi war criminals.LockeGenre: Action and drama Cast: Tom Hardy, Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott, Olivia Colman, Tom Holland, Ben Daniels, Danny Webb, Alice Lowe, Bill Milner, Lee Ross, Silas Carson and Kirsty Dillon Director: Steven Knight Rated: R Ivan Locke (Hardy) has worked diligently to craft the life he has envisioned, dedicating himself to the job that he loves and the family he adores. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul. All taking place over the course of one absolutely riveting car ride, Locke is an exploration of how one decision can lead to the complete collapse of a life. Walking with the EnemyGenre: Drama Cast: Jonah Armstrong, Hannah Tointon, Ben Kingsley, Simon Kunz, Simon Dutton, Burn Gorman, Shane Taylor, Charles Hubbell, Simon Hepworth, Andrew Brooke, William Hope Director: Mark Schmidt Not rated Inspired by the true story of Pinchas Rosenbaum, Walking with the Enemy begins in the final months of World War II. The Nazis are desperately trying to enact their genocide against Jews in Hungary, who had been protected from persecution until their leader Regent Horthy (Sir Ben Kingsley) was forced to bow to the will of Hitler and Eichmann. Hoping to find his displaced family and avoid being placed in a labor camp, young Elek Cohen (Jonas Armstrong) undertakes extraordinary measures to survive, using a stolen uniform to pose as a Nazi officer so that he can reroute Jews to safety and disrupt the activities of the German occupiers. Young & BeautifulGenre: Drama Cast: Graldine Pailhas, Marine Vacth, Frederic Pierrot, Fantin Ravat, Johan Leysen and Charlotte Rampling Director: Francois Ozon Not rated Young & Beautiful is a coming-of-age portrait of a 17-year-old French girl over four seasons and four songs, from her sexual awakening to her first time, from her exploration of love to her search for her identity.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

From the Chicago area, where he played at various clubs, Dawson has lived in Indian Rocks Beach since 2009. He also lived in Indian Rocks Beach from 1975 to 1982. Dawson said El Tree-O performs weekly at Mahuffers Bar in Indian Shores. I have gone there and played a few times, and long story short, we put together an hour show, Dawson said. Besides El Tree-O, Discount Loans brings continuous music by two other local bands to the Beach Party stage. Southern Jam will perform first before headliners, The Surfin Raccoons, musicians who have played many local area clubs for 15 years, takes the stage. Surfin Raccoons is a band that was formed mainly by Mike Riley and Sam Reynolds at a party at the Cinder Block in Saint Petersburg in 1985. They play manly s and s rock and blues. The event will be held on the beach just behind the Indian Rocks Beach County Park, 1700 Gulf Blvd. Admission is free and food is for sale from local vendors: Crabby Bills, Pajanos, Red Lion Pub, Slyce Pizza Bar, Sombra Coffee and Brain Freeze Treats. Wine, sponsored by 18 on the Rocks, is also available for purchase as well as beer, courtesy of Crabby Bills. No coolers or dogs allowed. Theres something for everyone. Theres a lot going on, Dawson said. They always put on a good show. The music is good. The vendors are good. Its neighbors being neighborly, he said. Dawson, 57, said he has been playing the harmonica for 45 years. His father was a professional musician, a Dixieland jazz trombonist. I sang first with him when I was 6 years old on his stage, Dawson said. Dawson is a longtime HOA member and volunteer and husband of HOA board member, Lisa Dawson. Raffle tickets to win a paddleboard from Watersports West will be sold at the event. Century 21 Beggins, which has sponsored the Biggest Beach Party Ever in past years, teamed up with Paramount Title to support it again this year. Chad Morris, Discount Loans.com Owner/Partner said, The caliber of local musical talent on the beaches is unbelievable and we never miss a chance to support it. This years media sponsor is Tampa Bay Newspapers/Beach Bee. The Indian Rocks Beach Homeowners Association, a nonprofit organization, donates proceeds from its events to support local community projects and worthwhile causes.
