Syrupped and featheredPublix manager celebrates his store raising over $10k for the March of Dimes By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Following his stores success during the March of Dimes signature fundraiser, March for Babies, Paul Cook, manager of the Publix on 113th Street and Park Boulevard, celebrated in the most unique way he could think of: on May 1, he let his employees cover him in maple syrup and feathers, and wandered down to 113th Street, where he clucked like a chicken. The store raised $10,300 for the cause in March, surpassing its original goal of $9,000. Only three times in Publix history has one of its stores raised more than $10,000, said Natalie Ison, a Publix representative. So the 113th Streets store is significant, she said. Cook said he set a goal for his store of $9,000, but told his employees that if they went above the $10,000 mark, hed let them syrup and feather him. I wanted to give them something to help motivate them, he said. He attributes this years success to the closing of Publix stores in Indian Rocks and Madeira Beach. Weve been a little bit busier because of that, he said. For nearly two decades, Publix stores across the country have supported the March of Dimes each spring.

The Swap-n-Shop, which kicked off April 13, offers the every day person the chance to sell or swap their goods, said Jennifer Pisco, who founded the group. Items vary from artwork and jewelry to lotions and balms, and browsers can even pick up homegrown flowers and veggies. A lot of the vendors just do this for a hobby, she said. So this gives them the chance to show off their skills and maybe make a little extra money. But its also a good way for vendors to jumpstart a business, before taking their wares to larger markets, she said. One woman lost her job right before the April 27 Swap-n-Shop, and showed up with furniture to sell. She said, This is my job for now, Pisco said. Pisco, who works full-time as a graphic No Democrat in District 13 race By SUZETTE PORTERThe qualifying period to run for a spot in the U.S. House of Representatives ended Friday, May 2. The list of candidates posted at the Florida Division of Elections website, showed one Republican, one Libertarian, one no party affiliation and one write-in candidate. The Democrats say they are backing the NPA. The incumbent, Republican David Jolly of Indian Shores was one the four who qualified. He defeated Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby of Clearwater in a special election on March 13 to fill seat left vacant after longtime U.S. Representative C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18, 2013. Sink announced April 15 that she would not be running in the Nov. 4 election. Overby announced April 21 that he too was bowing out of the race. On May 2, Overby announced he was back in. After much deliberation and a number of careful consultations with my family, campaign team and community, I have decided to renew by candidacy for the 13th Congressional District seat, Overby said in a press release. Pinellas County deserves real choices on the ballot in November, by running for this office, I can serve my community by helping to ensure a real dialogue and discussion on the issues facing us. Overby thanked the Rev. Manuel Sykes, a Democrat, who had considered running against Jolly, for his support and encouragement. Jolly and Overby will be opposed by NPA candidate Ed Jany of Tampa and write-in candidate Michael Stephen Levinson of St. Petersburg. Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant issued a statement May 2, declaring the partys support for the NPA candidate. Like so many in Pinellas County, (Ret.) Col. Ed Jany is sick and tired of Congressman David Jollys dysfunctional Republican Congress that puts special interest ahead of seniors, women, and working families, Tant said. Col.

OR Tax holiday helps Floridians prepare for hurricane season By SUZETTE PORTERFlorida lawmakers approved a Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday, which begins May 31 and continues through June 8. Hurricane season begins June 1 and continues through Nov. 30. Government should encourage rather than hinder Floridians from preparing their homes and families for severe weather that threatens our state during hurricane season, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, in a May 2 press release the last day of the 2014 legislative session. The legislature also approved a back-to-school tax holiday scheduled for Aug. 1-3 and a sales tax holiday for energy efficient products from Sept. 19-21 for the first $1,500 of the sales price for new Energy Star or WaterSense products. During the hurricane preparedness tax holiday, the following items are exempt from state sales tax and county discretionary sales surtaxes: Portable self-powered light sources selling for $20 or less Portable self-powered radio, two-way radio, or weather band radio selling for $50 or less Tarpaulins or other flexible waterproof sheeting selling for $50 or less Self-contained first-aid kits selling for $30 or less Ground anchor systems or tie-down kits selling for $50 or less Gas or diesel fuel tanks selling for $25 or less Packages of AA-cell, C-cell, D-cell, 6-volt, or 9-volt batteries, excluding automobile and boat batteries, selling for $30 or less Nonelectric food storage coolers selling for $30 or less A portable generator selling for $750 or less Reusable ice selling for $10 or less Pinellas Countys Emergency Management is urging residents to begin hurricane preparations now, including finalizing their plans. In the latest eLert, residents are asked to finish stocking their survival kits, check their evacuation levels and update lists of important papers and phone numbers. Renowned hurricane forecasters Dr. William Gray and Dr. Phillip Klotzbach with the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University are predicting a below-average season in 2014. Despite the quiet forecast, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them, the forecasters said in report released April 10. They are reminded to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much or how little activity is predicted. Gray and Klotzbach predict nine named storms will form in the Atlantic Basin this year and three will strengthen into hurricanes and one will become a major hurricane. They say there is a 35 percent chance that a hurricane will make landfall somewhere on the U.S. coast and a 20 percent chance one will come ashore on the east coast, including the peninsula of Florida.

Col. Jany will be a voice for Main Street values and will work to bring commonsense solutions to a place where theyre needed most: the halls of Congress. The Florida Democratic Party proudly supports Col. Ed Jany. Tant explained that Jany, who is a registered Democrat, is forced to run as a NPA candidate due to state law that requires candidates to be registered with a political party 365 days prior to qualifying. Jany changed his political affiliation from Republican to Democrat several months ago, Tant said. But it was too late to qualify to run as a Democratic candidate for the District 13 seat. Republican Gus Bilirakis of Tarpon Springs, who currently serves District 12, which includes the northern sections of Pinellas, qualified unopposed and will keep his seat. Democrat Kathy Castor of Tampa, who represents District 14, which includes a portion of south St. Petersburg, also qualified without opposition. DISTRICT 13, from page 1ACounty employees re-assigned to St. Petersburg College By SUZETTE PORTERTwo key Pinellas County employees will spend a few months at St. Petersburg College. Former administrator Bob LaSala and Gwendolyn Warren, former executive director of Health and Community Services, have been relieved of their duties with county government and have new work assignments at SPC. The county will continue to pay their salaries. Commission Chair Karen Seel sent a letter to LaSala April 24, letting him know that he had been re-assigned as a loaned executive to SPC. This new assignment is effective immediately and shall run through your July 14, 2014 termination date, Seel wrote. President (William) Law will be utilizing your experience in the ongoing work of the college related to the economic and community development and within the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. According to the letter, LaSalas new work site in in Clearwater. Commissioners voted unanimously April 15 to terminate LaSala. His contract calls for 90-day notice. LaSala received unfavorable results during this annual review. Commissioners have been concerned about miscommunications with some of the countys partners, especially those who provide fire and emergency services and health and community services. Interim Administrator Mark Woodard sent a similar letter to Warren April 24 informing her that she had been re-assigned as a loaned executive to SPC. The assignment runs through June 30 Warrens retirement date. As this is a full-time assignment, your duties as executive director of Health and Community Services are now suspended and have been transferred to others, Woodard wrote. Please coordinate with Lynda Leedy to arrange for the removal of all personal property from your office Saturday, April 26 and on that day return all county property Leedy, former deputy director of HCS, is now interim director. Warren will assist SPC with its wellness program at an office on the Clearwater campus. Her first day on her new job was April 28. Warren first ran into trouble with the commission during a revamp of the county Veterans Services. Recently, she has come under fire during talks about changes to the medical care program for the indigent population. Seel sent a letter to county employees April 17 informing them of LaSalas termination and Woodards appointment as interim administrator, pending approval of the commission at an April 22 work session, which was unanimous. I know that with change comes stress from the unknown, rumors due to miscommunication and the perception of chaos, Seel told employees. I know it has been difficult times, stressed by restructuring and entire department upheavals, bringing many changes in personnel. I want you to feel free to do your job and to continue to do it well without worry or stress. Through all of these challenges, you all have continued to set the standard for public service.Right, former Health and Community Services Executive Director Gwendolyn Warren presents information about a contract for design of the Bayside Health Campus during a Feb. 26 commission meeting.

A tradition in your neighborhood.Expert touts advantages of improved transitST. PETERSBURG Economic leaders throughout the Tampa Bay area have labored for years to attract high-tech, well-paying jobs to help bolster our economy. During an April 23 presentation to the PSTA Board of Directors, Darnell Grisby, director of policy development and research from the American Public Transportation Association, raised eyebrows when he noted the economic impact of high-tech jobs. One high-tech sector job, he said, can support up to six other local jobs, such as lawyers, construction workers and plumbers. That statistic was part of Grisbys presentation on the changing travel patterns of millennials, as opposed to older generations, and how 18 to 34 year-olds are increasingly embracing transit use and communities that offer viable transportation options. The data is from a recent study released by APTA: Millennials and Mobility and shows that younger generations are leading a trend of Americans who are returning to walkable cities and suburbs that feature vibrant public transit. A recently corroborated trend by a separate study released by the Rockefeller Foundation and Transportation for America concluded that 54 percent of Millennials would consider moving to another city if it had more and better options for getting around. Sixty-six percent said that access to high quality transportation is one of the top three criteria they would weigh when deciding where to live. PSTA and economic development officials believe these trends only further enforce the need to build a robust transit system to help keep and attract new talent coveted by high paying industries such as software, internet and scientific research. To be able to attract the very best people from around the country we need to have transit options, said Mike Meidel, Pinellas County Economic Development Director. Numerous studies over the past few years commissioned by Zipcar also show that Millennials, on average, are now more willing to give up a car than their cell phones. The smartphone is closing the gap between the perceived benefits of the car versus public transportation, Grisby said. As more transit agencies around the nation deploy real-time applications that allow customers to know down to the minute where the bus will be, increasingly transit users will be able to be as spontaneous as the automobile user. PSTA is already taking advantage of that growing trend thanks to Real Time Bus Information System, which debuted last fall. The system lets riders use cell phones, smartphones, computers or texts to find out when the next bus will arrive at their stop.

It is a time when we get to thank our childrens educators for all they do for our kids. They play such an important part of our childs life. I am so thankful for the teachers I had while going to school. For the most part, I had wonderful teachers who helped me become the person I am today. My daughters, who are now in second and fourth grade, also have had fantastic teachers so far during their first few years of school. My girls love going to school, and it has a lot to do with their teachers. Both my daughters have had teachers that are very caring and nice. When you think about it, elementary school teachers spend almost as much time as we do as parents with our children during the week. And todays teachers have so much on their plate. They have to be more than teachers. Because of todays society and the homelife of a lot of kids, teachers have had to take on an even bigger role in a childs life. Some of todays educators are the only positive influence a child has. Teachers today are role models and play a big impact in our childs life. Recently, I was asked to attend an awards ceremony for fifty middle and high school students who turned their lives around. It was called Pinellas Countys Turnaround Achievement Awards. The Krauss family, who own the Seminole Lanes bowling alley, hosted the event. This awards ceremony captured the essence of just how important an educator can be. A lot of these students lives were changed because of teachers who took time and cared about a student who may have been going in the wrong direction. Some of the students were in trouble all the time, some were making terrible grades and some were missing a lot of school. Because a teacher or coach took an interest and let them know they truly cared about them, these students lives were changed. The stories I heard that day were incredible and brought tears to my eyes. During the ceremony, the educator gave you a glimpse of how the student was and how they changed. The student, in turn, thanked the person who made a difference in their life. Some of these students were going nowhere fast and now they have scholarships to universities. It is important to thank those who make a difference in our childs lives. So I thank all of our educators. You deserve this week of appreciation and continued appreciation throughout the year.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls, lives in Seminole.

That is, until family caregivers consider the value of the time and financial sacrifices made to care for a loved one. If you are a family caregiver, you know all too well that the responsibility requires a considerable amount of your time time and attention your loved one deserves. As a caregiver, you are on call day and night. You coordinate transportation to and from medical appointments, grocery shopping and other errands. You have another home to clean. You are the one who helps pay bills, provides companionship for your loved one and takes care of other tasks as needed. This is often in addition to holding down a job and caring for your immediate family. When you work with a reputable in-home care agency, such as Comfort Keepers, you will still be in charge of the care your loved one receives. You just will not be responsible for the time-consuming, day-to-day care giving responsibilities. In addition to peace of mind, our in-home care delivers a wide range of services, working with seniors and their families to create care plans that meet their specific needs. These individual care plans allow seniors the opportunity to age in place, safely and securely. Our services provide support to help preserve seniors' dignity and independence as well. Comfort Keepers requires a two-hour minimum visit and we base our services around your loved ones needs. It may be meal prep, light housekeeping, a bath visit or it may be both. We create a plan of care that can be affordable and at the same time, specific needs are met on a weekly basis. The greatest benefit to hiring a caregiver from an organization that employs its caregivers is the oversight provided and convenience for everyone involved. Details are not your responsibility. The biggest distinction with Comfort Keepers is: We employ the caregiver, and clients are not burdened with employer laws and requirements. Our employees undergo rigorous background checks, interviews and reference validations. Our caregivers are covered by workers' compensation, general liability and bonding insurance. A large roster of caregivers can "step in" in the event the regular caregiver is unavailable. Ongoing Client Advocate visits are in place to assure a trusting bond between client and caregiver. More seniors prefer to stay in their own home, enjoying cherished memories and maintaining a level of privacy and independence. Let Comfort Keepers be your solution to keeping mom and dad safe in their homes.For two hours to 24/7 care, call us for affordable options!

Rick Scott was joined by Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey, Florida sheriffs and police chiefs in Tampa April 23 to announce that Floridas crime rate had dropped 4.7 percent compared to 2012, putting Florida at a 43-year crime low. The findings were based on the Uniform Crime Report. In a press release, Scott said, Today we have more good news for families. Even while Floridas population grows, the total number of crimes continues to drop, which is a testament to our brave men and women who serve in our communities each and every day. Florida is now at a 43-year crime low. Our lower crime rate means that not only are our families and communities safer, but Florida is in a better position to create more opportunities for Floridians. This drop in crime shows everyone that Florida really is the best place to raise a family. State Attorney General Pam Bondi said, Making Florida a safe place to live, work, and raise a family is my main goal, and thanks to the hard work of our superior law enforcement officers and prosecutors, we have the lowest crime rate in 43 years. I am grateful to all of the public servants who work tirelessly to make our communities safer. Their work has made a tremendous difference, as evidenced by a crime rate that has dropped for the past three consecutive years. The total number of crimes fell 3.8 percent from last year, which translates into 27,380 fewer crimes in 2013. The number of violent crimes was also down 2.4 percent. Murder is down 3.9 percent, forcible sex offenses and robbery each declined 2.8 percent and aggravated assault is down 2.1 percent. There were 15 fewer victims of domestic violence in 2013 with cohabitants being the largest group of victims in this category, with spouses remaining the second largest group. Law enforcement officers made 904,634 arrests last year, almost 2,500 arrests per day. The report also contains information on officers killed feloniously. Two law enforcement officers died from criminal causes while on duty during 2013. In addition, two law enforcement officers died accidently during the course of duty. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri released the 2013 PCSO crime stats May 17, which showed a 5.8 percent decrease in total Part 1 Crimes and a 5 percent decrease in the overall crime rate in the Sheriffs service area for 2013. This marks the fifth consecutive year of a decrease in Part 1 Crimes for the area patrolled by the Pinellas Sheriffs Office, with an overall five-year decrease of 23.8 percent. Part One crimes are murder, forcible sex, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Uniform Crime Report system. The complete 2013 Annual Uniform Crime Report, including county-by-county breakdowns, can be found on FDLEs website at www.fdle.state.fl.us /fsac/ucr. FDLE began tracking crime statistics in 1971. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Detectives with the Largo Police Department investigated the theft of more than $500,000 in cigarettes and cash from Dosal Tobacco Corporations distribution center in Largo, resulting in charges against two former employees within the last month. Detective Lance Wagoner, with the assistance of Detective Keith Wedin, began the investigation into a $350,000 theft from the Dosal warehouse, in the 13800 block of U.S. 19, March 20. They worked with the manager of the Largo warehouse, as well as Dosals national sales manager. Dosal is a multimillion-dollar company that produces cigarettes in Miami and markets them worldwide under the brands Competidora, DTC, Romy and 305s. The investigation made it clear that two suspects were stealing independently of one another, police reported. To gather evidence, Wagoner and Wedin canvassed 38 convenience stores in Pinellas and Pasco counties and interviewed the owners. Detectives discovered that former employee Basem Quasem Shahin, 36, took about $50,000 in currency and money orders from accounts on his route in St. Petersburg, according to police. Shahin quit his job with Dosal before police were notified of the theft. Wagoner collaborated with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and learned that Shahin had taken flight to the country of Jordan. Police are seeking a warrant for his arrest, charging him with a second-degree felony scheme to defraud. Another suspect former employee Scott Joseph Delemeester, 31, of St. Petersburg was arrested for a first-degree felony scheme to defraud April 28. He is accused of stealing $293,787 in cigarettes. The second suspects case was a bit more problematic, as it involved the detectives having to learn about the inventory control system, computerized devices and standard operating procedures used by the company, explained Sgt. Randall Chaney of Largos investigative services division. An executive with Dosal flew to Pinellas County to give her expert testimony and help detectives develop probable cause in the case. In the course of the five-week investigation, police also discovered that Delemeester stole from his employer two years ago, according to reports. Police will pursue a second charge, bringing the total of Delemeesters thefts to over $500,000. Largo Police Chief Jeff Undestad praised his detectives for their work in a citywide email about the case. A great deal of time goes into investigations like this and not all have a successful outcome like this one, he wrote.Former employees accused of stealing $500,000 in cash and cigarettes Scott Joseph Delemeester To report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

Deputies were called to the Caroline Trailer Court, 6418 Haines Road in unincorporated St. Petersburg at about 8:42 a.m. Saturday in reference to a found dog. When deputies arrived, they found a German Shepard mixed breed dog that appeared to be malnourished, emaciated and covered in fleas. Deputies were able to locate the dogs owner, Jason Leigh Aldridge, 38, who reportedly told deputies he did not know the dog had left his home. As deputies conducted their investigation, they discovered Aldridge was feeding the dog from a plastic bag of food infested with bugs. The dogs bed and area where the dog spent the majority of his time was soiled with urine and feces. Food and water bowls were empty. According to deputies, Aldridge told them the dog named Rocky was 17-years-old and his health had been deteriorating, but he had not been to a vet recently due to lack of money. Deputies contacted Pinellas County Animal Services and staff took possession of the dog. As of April 26, Rocky weighed 47 pounds. Deputies arrested Aldridge for one count of felony animal cruelty.

S pecial 1 Time Offer 76 Years Combined ExperienceFred J. Menth Richard (Bo) Bulmanski Rising water temperatures should increase actionSummer-like weather over the past week has pushed our water temperatures up to about what they should be for this time of year. The warmer water should hopefully accelerate the baitfish migration to the area. Thus far this spring season has been pretty light on bait. Those willing to get up early have had success filling the live well with scaled sardines. However, once the sun comes up, cast-netting live bait has been tough to say the least. The best kingfish action remains in 30 to 50 foot of water. Artificial reefs in this depth are key places to target, as well as near shore hard-bottom areas as shallow as 20 foot. Trolling either live blue runners or silver spoons behind a number 2 planer has been working well. Most of the fish have been in the 10-pound range, with fish up to 20 pounds being fairly common. The redfish has dominated the inshore scene. Big high tides brought on by this last moon phase allowed anglers to target reds along the mangroves for extended periods of time. Warmer water has prompted the reds to feed much better than a couple of weeks ago, and having a well full of scaled sardines doesnt hurt, either. Target the points along the mangrove shorelines. These small points will usually have an oyster bar around them and when the tide is high, the reds like to sit right on top of the oyster. Pier anglers fishing the De Soto piers and the Skyway piers are catching plenty of pompano. Catch these tasty critters by bouncing Crazy jigs off the bottom. Early mornings have provided the best action. Expect plenty of Spanish mackerel to be hanging around the piers as well. Cast Gotcha plugs, silver spoons or live threadfins.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.

Everest University shows some Earth Day love in LargoLARGO The Nature Preserve at Largo Central Park received special attention on Earth Day as Everest University-Largo gave its adopted park a cleanup. On April 22, students, faculty and staff grabbed rubber gloves and garbage bags for three hours of trash pickup at the park, situated at 150 Highland Ave. SE. We adopted the Largo Central Park Nature Preserve two years ago as a way to give back, said Todd Emmons, coordinator of the regular park cleanup and massage therapy instructor at Everest University-Largo. Part of the soft skills we teach at Everest is the importance of volunteering and doing something good for the community where we live. The Largo Recreation, Parks and Arts Department erected a plaque to Everest for its dedication in keeping the Nature Preserve clean. Everest works closely with Greg Wright, parks supervisor, to help rid the park of pollution. Its 31 acres are home to more than 130 species of birds. The American alligator, otters, the red fox, wild turkeys, marsh rabbits and bats all feed or live in the park. Much of the garbage accumulates in the Nature Preserves marshlands, where it is carried by surface water runoff. Studies show that volunteering provides physical and mental rewards, including mood lifts and stress relief. It brings people together, promotes personal growth and helps students better understand the makeup of the community where they live. Most importantly, students who have low self-esteem gain a new perspective. They learn their value by seeing they are needed and that every person counts. Everest Universitys Largo campus is at 1199 E. Bay Drive, Largo.

Throndsen is Prepare Florida PHSS coordinator. Most Floridians are underprepared for disaster: less than one-third of Floridas population has a family disaster plan. The diverse and varied composition of our states population also poses unique challenges, especially for our most vulnerable: seniors, children, migrant workers, underserved populations and tourists. Included in the plans of the campaign is the goal to train 500,000 people in lifesaving first aid, CPR and AED skills over the next three years. Research has shown that continuous Citizen CPR can be effective in caring for a person with no signs of life when a rescuer is unable, untrained or unwilling to perform full CPR. The best way for a bystander to help is by calling 9-1-1 and using Hands-Only CPR. Its simple to do and theres no mouth-tomouth contact. In a life threatening situation, performing Hands-Only CPR is better than doing nothing at all. There are no prerequisites or minimum age to participate in the 30-minute course. The Citizen CPR training is not intended to substitute for a formal training course. Citizen CPR is not a certification course. To register, call Pinch-A-Penny at 397-6817. Pinch-A-Penny, Pool-Patio-Spa/Hot Tub Store is a local franchise owned by long-time Seminole residents by Trish and Don Nuckols.

Chef and owner Michael Athanasopoulos competed in the competition in March. This was Pizza Bizzars first year at the event and the competition was fierce.

Congratulations to Luca, the May pet photo of the month winner. Luca is a 6year-old Chihuahua who lives with his parents, Sophia Renee and Michael Leishman in Indian Rocks Beach. They have raised Luca since he was small enough to fit in a coffee cup. Even full-grown, he only weighs 4 pounds and was the runt of the litter, but dont tell him that. He grew up with two pit bull siblings, Willis and Lola, and always thought he was far tougher than them. And at least as big. He loves sunbathing, burrowing in blankets and warm crevices, and has endearing obsessive habits. But what his mom loves most about him is that even though he is all grown up, he still looks and behaves like a puppy. For better or for worse, hes still very dependent on his moms presence and is the happiest when hes with her. He is never far from her lap and she loves and takes comfort in this constant affection from her best friend. Her favorite quality about Luca is his personality and how he seems to feel about her. Ive had dogs my whole life but never a dog that looked at me with such intensity and relied on me so much, she said. I truly feel the enormous love he has for me and the comfort he takes from having me close. As pet of the month winner, Luca and his family won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park.

This frightening disease should not be ignored because of the consequences for our pets, as well as the potential for it to spread to people. Leptosporosis, commonly abbreviated as lepto, is a bacterial disease. It is typically spread by the urine of infected wildlife, including squirrels, rats, mice, opossums and raccoons. Unfortunately, these critters inhabit most of our backyards, so even dogs that never leave their own yard have the potential to be exposed. The bacteria also can live for some time in puddles and in the soil. The symptoms can be vague, which is why some call lepto the great mimicker. In dogs, abdominal pain, fever, loss of appetite, vomiting, and changes in the frequency of urination are all potential signs but are frustratingly signs of many other diseases as well. The testing for lepto can be difficult, time consuming and expensive, leaving many cases undiagnosed. Untreated, leptosporosis can lead to liver and kidney failure and be fatal. When a dog becomes infected with the leptosporosis bacteria, they tend to drink more and pass the bacteria through their urine. Because the bacteria can be cutaneously spread, or is contagious through the skin, this puts human family members who come in contact with the infected urine at risk. According to the CDC, symptoms in people include fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, jaundice, anemia, and sometimes a rash, and can lead to kidney damage, liver failure, and even brain and respiratory disorders. If properly diagnosed, lepto is treatable with antibiotics in both dogs and people. In 2005, more than 40 people in Tampa caught leptosporosis after an adventure race that involved running though standing water around the Hillsborough River; it is in our immediate area. There are several vaccines for leptosporosis in dogs that do an excellent job of preventing disease, but they are often underutilized for several reasons. Many dog owners decline the vaccine, mistakenly thinking that their dog would have to catch it from another dog. Years ago, veterinary schools mistakenly taught that only boar-hunting hounds needed to be vaccinated; at the time, it was not understood that other wildlife carried the bacteria. The second reason the vaccine is underutilized is because it is by far one of the most reactive vaccines, and some pets simply cannot get it without having a vaccine reaction. Studies have shown the general risk of a vaccine reaction is more with very small dogs and certain breeds, such as dachshunds. Leptosporosis is a truly scary disease. Pet owners should be vigilant and careful, and not become a statistic in the University of Floridas spike in cases.

Viewpoints 17A Seminole Beacon, May 8, 2014Intersections are a part of every commute, and they can be extremely dangerous, reflected by how many accidents we see. In Pinellas County, U.S. 19 and Tampa Road has had the most crashes of any intersection over the past six years, partly because its the fourth most congested intersection in the county. In second place is the Curlew Road and U.S. 19 intersection, which is in the same vicinity. In all, eight of the top 25 crash intersections are along the U.S. 19 corridor. But no matter what routes you take, its up to you to watch the road and make adjustments as needed. These days, drivers are more distracted than ever. Many drivers tend to ignore what is in front of them as they text on their phones, tend to passengers, eat, or who knows what else. These distractions can lead to heading into an intersection too fast, then slamming on the brakes, which can cause a collision. So with this in mind, here are some tips for drivers to avoid crashes at intersections: Look ahead. Never rely solely on the brake lights in front of you to know when to stop. Always look ahead at traffic patterns and signals. Paying attention to upcoming traffic will help you gauge if the light will be red when you get there. Avoid tunnel vision and only watching the car directly in front of you. Know when to stop at a yellow light. A yellow light does not mean that you should simply speed up to get through the intersection. Instead, it is a caution signal alerting you to be prepared to stop. Generally, if youre going the speed limit 100 feet or less from the intersection when the light turns yellow, you have passed the point of no return and cant stop safely. If this occurs, drive through to avoid sudden braking. However, if youre not yet in that zone, be prepared to stop. Beware of following large vehicles too closely. If a truck or large vehicle is in front of you, maintain enough space so that youre able to see past it. Or, if possible, try to get around the vehicle so that you can have better visibility of the road ahead. Monitor your speed. In many accidents, speed is a factor. The faster you go, the less time youre going to have to react if something unforeseen happens in front of you. Be careful with turns. Have you ever been driving and gotten over to the turning lane, only to realize it isnt where you want to go? If you find yourself in a similar situation, make the turn and then reroute yourself to get back on track. Trying to suddenly get back over into the other lane is dangerous and against the law if within the solid white lines. Its also important to note that not all crashes at these intersections are between vehicles. Pedestrians have accounted for 6 percent of all crashes at Pinellas intersections over the past six years. Whether youre on foot or on a bicycle, always stay alert to your surroundings and follow these safety rules: Look both ways, and then look again before you cross. When crossing high-speed intersections as a pedestrian, it is important to take a second glance and always use the crosswalk. Just because you have the right of way, this doesnt mean you shouldnt still pay attention to traffic. Make sure no cars are running a red light. Vehicles going 60 mph can cover a quarter mile in 15 seconds. You also need to watch out for cars turning right on a red light. Many drivers slow down but not all come to a complete stop or yield to pedestrians. Be visible. Bright clothing and reflectors help keep you visible to drivers, especially at night. Follow the rules of the road. Even while riding a bike, as long as youre on the road, youre subject to the same rules as vehicles.

As we grow older, our body parts begin to show wear and tear. Our bones creak and pop. We start to slow down. Medical science has done wonders in delaying the effects of aging. Most of us can look forward to a long life even if we have to take a handful of drugs every day. While we work to increase longevity, it seems little progress is being made to increase communication between the generations. In fact, some say its getting worse. Life experience is being devalued more and more especially in light of all the technological advances.The young remain convinced they know better than their elders, and the elders know the younger generation has a lot to learn. I remember thinking of the older generation as the naysayers. They never seemed to listen to ideas, and they rarely let me try them not that it stopped me. Sometimes I paid the heavy price for my youthful spontaneity. Now that Im older, I realize the ideas proposed as a former member of the younger generation were in reality a case of been there and done that for my elders. They actually said no with good reason. But poor communication skills on both sides result in generational conflict. Instead of the younger generation respectfully questioning their elders about their experience, they turn away, disgruntled because no one takes them seriously or lets them do anything. Elders could try to explain, but it probably would do no good. The younger generation isnt known for its listening skills. And, older folks arent known for their patience. I do still remember when I was younger. It really wasnt that long ago. Im not yet ancient. It pretty much infuriates me when its implied that because Im now an older woman, I cant understand. Trust me. I get it. Ive been there and done that more times than Ill admit. I remember thinking why do they do it that way, its so stupid. Now, I know many things happen as they do because thats how it works literally. I also know there is little in life that cant be improved. It is true that old folks get set in their ways. Its comfortable. We like to invoke, the if it aint broke, dont fix it rule. We really dont care if the younger generation thinks were stupid. Theyll know better when they get to be our age, as we did and the generations before. Then theres a matter of respect. The younger generation doesnt seem to have much respect for their elders. Were dated and not very smart about the real world, or so they say. We cant even type with our thumbs! Yet, they demand our respect and thrive on our praise, while secretly planning our demise. They covet our ability to take on more responsibility something they perceive as power. Imagine what could happen if the younger generation recognized the value of experience and understood what it meant to earn that prized position of seniority. What if they understood seniority in the workplace didnt just mean more vacation time and maybe a bigger salary. Seniority really means many years of job/life experience. But just for a moment, lets imagine young people and old people working together respectfully to create that better world. Of course, it would take improved communication skills and I dont mean texting. It would require those with seniority taking time to listen to an idea even if it has been tried and failed. Instead of the younger generation dissing their elders, they would learn from their experience and use it to come up with something never tried something new. If the young could just understand, the importance the older generation puts on not repeating their mistakes. The young believe they can skip steps, running to the top of the mountain without a plan for getting down. The old have fallen off that mountain a time or two. We dont want to do it again. We prefer to plan a safe descent. We like working with a safety line. Thats how we survive. Its true that older folks become comfortable with things the way they are. Theyre resistant to change without a really good reason. They lose patience when those younger insist on doing whats already been tried unsuccessfully, especially when someone acts as if theyve invented a new wheel. Please forgive the lack of excitement. Young people are valued for their energy, their ability to learn and innovate. Older people have great value for their experience, abilities and skills. They know most do overs are stupid. Theyve been there and done that.Suzette Porter is Internet services manager for Tampa Bay Newspapers.Bill Kane and his family lived in a Midwest state with restrictive gun laws. One day Bill said to his wife Mitzi, Lets move to Georgia. Theyve got a new firearms law that will make us much safer than we are here. Most people in Georgia are allowed to own a gun and take it almost everywhere. Bill was 40. He had never been shot or held up at gunpoint, or otherwise been threatened by someone carrying a gun. Even so, he heard the crime reports and listened to the stories issued by the Giggies. They were the members of God Is Guns (GIG), a huge, rich and powerful gun lobby. Despite their rapidly growing influence the Giggies were scared. They warned that one day weakkneed liberals would repeal the Second Amendment and forbid ordinary citizens from owning guns. So Bill quit his job. He and Mitzi, with their two children, moved to Georgia. They rented a house and enrolled their kids in a high school. The schools principal welcomed them, saying, I carry a firearm, and so do most of my teachers, as well as the school custodian and the three security guards. To graduate, every senior must complete a sharpshooters program. Any student who refuses is regarded as a subversive, and must wear a red-and-black bulls-eye on his/her clothing each day. The Kanes looked for a suitable church to attend. At first they could find no church of their denomination that allowed the congregation to wear guns during the services. But at last, with the help of GIG, they found a house of worship whose leaders loved guns almost as much as they loved God. Bill went to a state office building to apply for a Georgia drivers license. As he entered the lobby, a greeter stopped him and said, Sir, are you carrying a firearm? Bill said, No. Should I have one? The greeter said, Well, we feel better if we can easily see a pistol on the hip of each patron. This identifies him or her as a God-fearing gun-loving citizen. Without a gun showing, the person could be a terrorist or, even worse, a left-wing, antigun troublemaker. Are you a member of GIG? Bill said, I sure am. I received my membership card just a few days ago. A week after moving into their new home, the Kanes were visited by the local Welcome Wagon. Two smiling ladies gave them flowers, a small cake, and a large box filled with assorted ammunition for use in handguns made by Magnum, Glock, Smith and Wesson, Colt and other major companies. One lady said, We hope these bullets will fit your weapons. You do own a gun or two, dont you? Most of the families in our crowd have at least five. Were all Giggies, and proud of it. One night they attended their first Guns Is God meeting. They listened to a fiery speech by the local GIG chairman, Chick L. Gruber. Chick warned that although the governor and state legislature were under GIGs thumb, the victory was far from complete. For example, he said, many Georgia police groups opposed the new guns-everywhere law. So did the Georgia Municipal Association. Chick said, Georgia still requires every citizen to obtain a license to carry a gun. Thats wrong, my friends! Thats Communism! We are surrounded by enemies of freedom, Gruber continued. They will not stop until all our weapons are taken from us, and we become powerless to resist the predators who will stalk our streets. But the greatest danger is not from the criminal element. A much larger threat are the richies, the filthy oligarchs. When they achieve absolute power, you and I will be unable to rise up and overthrow them. Our guns will be gone, and so will our ability to revolt, as our founding fathers did in 1776. Do we want that? Will we stand for that? Hell, no! shouted the crowd. Gruber went on to outline GIGs nationwide plan to defeat every anti-gun political candidate in future elections. GIG needs your help, your donations and most of all your hatred and mistrust of anyone who opposes total firearms freedom and the God-given Second Amendment. We must squash them like bugs! Are you with me? The cheers and applause were deafening. The Kanes were astounded. On the drive home they said little to each other. But before going to bed they shared a beer at the kitchen table. Bill reached for his wifes hand and said, I thought Id feel safe here in Georgia. But somehow I dont. How about you? Mitzi said, Im scared. Lets go back home. A week later, thats what they did.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The theme of National Nurses Week 2014 is Nurses Leading the Way, and no one puts more passion into the health care profession than VA nurses and nursing staff. The VA is the nations largest single employer of nurses. The VA nurses lead their profession in education and training, clinical responsibility and research. But their passion comes from VAs mission to provide the very best personalized, proactive, patient-driven care to the veterans we serve. The nurses are integral and equal members of our health care team of professionals. No health care professional is closer to the veterans we care for than a VA nurse. Veterans and families rely on them for their compassion and the VA relies on them for setting the highest clinical care standards. That reliance is well placed. The VAs recognition as a leader in health care quality, patient safety and research is due in large part to nurses. Every year, the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System serves more than 100,000 veterans and our nursing staff is involved at virtually every point of care. From admission to discharge, from primary care to complex inpatient procedures and home care our nursing staff is there to deliver the best possible outcomes for our nations heroes. Moreover, about 20 percent of our nurses are veterans and 245 hold advanced certifications in specialized nursing practices like anesthesia, geriatrics, mental health, cardiac and more. For Nurses Week this year, the Bay Pines VAHCS will host various events to recognize our dedicated nursing professionals across the organization. The week culminates with our annual nursing awards program scheduled for Friday, May 9, at the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center. The event is a fitting tribute to all of those who committed to the Florence Nightingale Pledge: With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care. I am deeply proud to be associated with the nearly 1,100 nursing employees who serve veterans across the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System and of all of our nations 3.1 million registered nurses who work tirelessly to keep us well and save lives around the clock every day. Happy nurses week. Teresa E. Kumar Associate director, Patient Care Services, Bay Pines VA Healthcare SystemLight rail: An Expensive Way to GoRe: Light rail, an inexpensive way to go, letter by Bob McEwan, April 24-25 Editor: Sorry, letter writer of last week, but this light rail is not going to take you to the Tampa airport. The light rail is only going from St. Petersburg to Clearwater. Gov. Scott announced Feb. 18, 2014, that a 15year advancement of a I-275 toll connector into Pinellas will be built with no tax increase for citizens. This new gateway will go to the St. Petersburg airport only. And the light rail is the expensive way to go. The sales tax increase the PSTA bus company wants us to vote for in November will raise our sales tax to 8 percent, the highest in the state of Florida. Greenlight Pinellas (their logo) plans to take the millions this sales tax increase will generate and borrow billions in grants, bonds, and debt to build a light rail system. PSTA and our elected officials want to spend your money to please powerful special interests. We do not need a rail. PSTA has lost our trust by the way they have been managing the bus system. They need to improve the system and do a better job of meeting the needs of the l.6 percent of residents that ride the buses.

Her family got its first car when she was about 18 or 20 years old. On May 1, she thought she was just going to a party. She was surprised to look around and see so many people around her age. At 108 years old, Thomson of Oak Manor in Largo still was the oldest person in the room, but she was one of 39 centenarians people age 100 or older at the Suncoast Hospice centenarian birthday party in Clearwater. This is believed to have broken the Guinness Book of World Records previous record of 31 centenarians all in one place at the same time. Additionally, there were 23 people in their late 90s among the approximate 250 people in attendance. Its the whole celebration of life, which is what our organization is about, said Rafael Sciullo, president and CEO of Suncoast Hospice. We have a long-standing history of including people from the community and really celebrating what people have added to the community and also their lives as well. Everyone has a wonderful story, Sciullo said, and it is a wonderful opportunity to share some of those stories and to celebrate. Thomsons story began in Illinois, where she grew up on a farm. One of her favorite memories of her childhood was jumping belly first onto her wooden sled and using her hands to steer her way down the hill. Ann Kelly of WDUV 105.5 FM helped host the ceremony and read brief biographies about many of the centenarians. One man is an Army veteran who can speak seven languages. Another woman, born in 1910, didnt go to her first movie until she was 60 years old. When Kelly reached the biography of Julia Cookie Winters, who will be 101in November, Winters eyes grew wide, her mouth twisted into a giant O, and her hands flew to her cheeks. She had never admitted her age out loud before, she said, and she could hardly believe how old she had gotten. Then she noticed a reporters camera and began making moose antlers with her hands and hammed it up for the photos. Sheri Grunden with Suncoast PACE describes Winters as a spitfire who loves to sing, loves music, people and is a big social butterfly. Winters of Pinellas Park said the party was super duper, and when asked what is the key to a long and happy life, she said its a glass of wine, whisky, and that she never had any kids. The table then erupted in laughter. At a nearby table, another centenarian had a fury visitor. Ivan, Sciullos 6-year-old golden retriever and trained service and therapy dog, happily donned a party hat and visited with the guests. Helen Williams, 101, who lives at the Palms of Largo, enjoyed petting Ivan at the party. Williams was raised in New York and is proud of her years working as a real estate agent. She was married for 60 years and has 38 great-grandchildren. The other ladies at her table asked her how she still has such a lovely and young complexion. Just wash it, Williams said. Phyllis Brewer isnt quite 100 yet, but born in 1916, that was close enough to celebrate. Besides, shes had to be a grown-up since she was a teenager, so maybe that counts for extra. Well, I became a mother when I was 15 because mother died when I was 15 and left me with four children underneath me, Brewer said. The youngest one was 2. They lived in South Cushing, Maine, and though it was hard, she had promised her mother that she would raise her brothers and sisters while their father worked as a carpenter. I thought I wasnt going to be able to do it, but I did, Brewer said. I promised my mother that I would take care of the children, and I did. Leaving school was the hardest part. After Brewer raised her siblings, she got married and had three kids of her own Arnold, Robert and Ruthie. Brewer has learned a lot throughout her life. I think Ive learned that your family means an awful lot to you, Brewer said. More precious than you realize as youre growing up. And I had cancer when I was 40 and I thought I was going to lose my life. And I thought, Whats going to happen to my children? They were old enough to take care of themselves, then, but I still thought they needed me. Sitting next to Brewer was Jane Hammond, 101, and lives in Regal Palms in Largo. She was at the party with her daughter, Audrey Walcheski. Hammond was married for 58 years, and she and her husband loved going on cruises together. She has always loved to dance and even got up out of her chair to dance along to the live music at the party. Hammond was born in Holland and came to the United States at age 7. Her family landed on Ellis Island and then lived in New Jersey until she got married. Walcheski said her father was in the military, so they all lived in many places, including California, West Virginia, and Florida several times before the couple finally retired in Florida. Hammond was a bookkeeper at St. Petersburg Junior College and has always been extremely active and an expert entertainer and cook. She passed down her skills for entertaining and cooking to her daughter, which are some of Walcheskis favorite memories of her mom. She was always just happy, Walcheski said of her mother. Tons of friends. Every time they would go on a cruise or something, they would come home with new friends and would continue to correspond with them and send Christmas cards to them and things like that. She would write out her Christmas cards every year until just a few years ago. Walcheski lives in Feather Sound and greatly enjoys the time she gets to spend with her mother. You know what? Im really enjoying her now, Walcheski said. I take her every Friday to get her hair done. We go to Safety Harbor to a beauty shop that shes gone to for years and years and years so I wouldnt change that for anything in the world. And we usually have the radio on and I find a station that she likes and we sing songs all the way up, and we just have a ball. Shell read the signs to me on the side of the road and then we go out and have lunch. Shes just really a pleasure. Royce Ladd of Lake Seminole Square in Seminole was one of the fewer male centenarians. At 105, he still is quite lively and gregarious. I dont feel like a minority anymore, Ladd said with a laugh, as he looked around at all the other people his age. Born in Iowa, Ladd was a civil engineer and was married to his wife for 77 years until she died last year at age 104. We had a very enjoyable life, he said. His helper, Joyce Otazo, said Ladd and his wife loved to travel and visited every country in the world except for Korea. He joked that the key to such a long and happy marriage was that they never had kids. But also, he said its to have a real good partner who likes the same things. The pair were extremely active and truly in love, Otazo said. When she helped him move to a smaller living space, they found stacks of letters that the couple had written to each other over the years that were incredibly moving. He also kept a journal of all their travels, Otazo said. I mean, Its 7 oclock in the morning and were doing this, Its 10 oclock at night and were doing this. All day. And they both were like that. So hes right. Find somebody who likes the same things that you do. They both loved the same things. When they got older, they still traveled, and he drove the motor home while his wife knitted and sewed. They were also proud that both of them graduated from college. Ladd is amazed by all the inventions and advancements that have occurred during his lifetime, especially in electronics. He said the current electronics are way over his head, though Otazo points out that he uses email and keeps up with people on the computer. Ladd said a key to living a long time is to not smoke or drink and to keep healthy as best one can. Also, look on the bright side, Ladd said. There usually is one. Suncoast Hospice in Clearwater believes they broke the Guinness World Record on May 1 for having the most centenarians in one place at one time. The record had been 31 people age 100 or older together all at once, and hospices final count on May 1 was 39 centenarians. Royce Ladd, 105, of Lake Seminole Square, was present for the event. Ladd was married to his wife for 77 years, and they had great adventures, traveling all over the world. They visited every country except for Korea.Photo by ALEXANDRA LUNDAHL Visit www.TBNweekly.comCLEARWATER The 2014 National Society of Arts and Letters Awards Luncheon held at Ruth Eckerd Hall Heye Room April 26 honored Mark Sforzini with the Community Award for his outstanding leadership and accomplishments.

We would like to recognize zero hospital-acquired pressure ulcers as a team effort, said Wendy Lincoln, R.N., in a press release. Lincoln is chief nursing officer at Northside Hospital.

Theyve had 36 No. 1 and Top 10 smash hit singles that are still being spun on classic rock radio more than 500,000 times every year. Theyve performed thousands of concerts worldwide to countless crowds. Now its time for three of the most legendary names in rock to come together for a massive U.S. summer tour.

Tickets start at $85. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerd hall.com. The addition of Don Felder to the Soundtrack of Summer tour means that the combined album sales of all three acts, as well as all the bands they were once members of, is well north of 200 million worldwide, said Styx guitarist/singer James JY Young in a press release issued by ABC Public Relations. Certainly by this yardstick, the Soundtrack of Summer has got to easily be in the Top 10 three-act concert tours to ever hit the road. Renegade Juke Box Heroes partying at the Hotel California will be your slammin soundtrack of a rockin hot summer! What more could you ask for after this crazy cold winter we are having? As longtime friends, were happy to join Styx and Don Felder for the ultimate soundtrack of summer, said Foreigner founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones. Our combined songs are some of Americas favorite summer anthems, and were excited to be bringing them to our fans across the country. This tour will have the best vocalists and guitarists on the road today, said Don Felder. The sheer volume of our combined catalogs is massive and should satisfy any rock n roll fan, and rock them until they cant walk out of the place. The Soundtrack of Summer kicks off May 16 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma before making two stops in Texas. Then, its on to the Sunshine State for a performance at Clearwaters Ruth Eckerd Felder will hit the stage at 7 p.m. at every stop. Styx and Foreigner will alternate closing slots. According to the current schedule, Foreigner will close the show at Ruth Eckerd Hall.ForeignerWith 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and rolls most enduring anthems such as Juke Box Hero, Feels Like The First Time, Urgent, Head Games, Say You Will, Dirty White Boy, Long, Long Way From Home, and the worldwide No. 1 hit, I Want To Know What Love Is Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than 30 years into the game. Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, spent more than 20 weeks on Billboards Top 200 Albums chart in 2013. According to the bands biography provided by Paradigm Talent Agency, at Foreigners core is founder and lead guitarist Mick Jones, the visionary maestro whose stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks and multilayered talents continue to escalate Foreigners influence, along with lead vocalist Kelly Hansen, bass guitarist Jeff Pilson and multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel. Founded in 1976, Foreigners debut album produced the hits Feels Like The First Time, Cold As Ice and Long, Long Way From Home. The album Double Vision followed, as did a string of hits like Urgent, Juke Box Hero and Waiting For A Girl Like You. Those songs helped give Foreigners next album, , its impressive run at No. 1 on the Billboard chart. At the zenith of s sound, Foreigners fifth album, Agent Provocateur, gave the world the incredible No. 1 global hit, I Want To Know What Love Is. This musical milestone followed the record-breaking song Waiting For A Girl Like You. A new level of energy commenced in 2002 when Jones decided to take Foreigner to the next level, according to the biography. He was joined by the astonishing Kelly Hansen on vocals, and continues as they lead the group in a re-emergence of astounding music that speaks to long time foreigner fans and younger generations. With renewed energy and direction, Foreigner hit the Billboard charts again with the 2005 release of their live greatest hits album, Extended Versions. Cant Slow Down followed in 2009, and entered the Billboard chart in the Top 30, driven by two Top 20 radio singles, In Pieces and When It Comes To Love. To follow was the release of the bands three-disc set, Feels Like The First Time, which included an acoustic CD with an intimate and unique re-interpretation of many Foreigner classics, studio re-records by the new lineup and a live performance DVD showcasing the groups exceptional live energy. Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, spent more than 20 weeks in the Billboard Top 200 in 2013. StyxSpawned from a Chicago basement in the early 1970s, Styx would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late s and early s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Over the course of their 38-year career, the band has released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top 10 singles. Styx has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. As a sign of their enduring popularity, the band has performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. According to ABC Public Relations, the current lineup of Styx features Tommy Shaw, James JY Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo. Two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Bad Company, two more studio albums and no end in sight, Styx continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.Early on, the music of Styx reflected such then-current progrockers as Emerson, Lake & Palmer and the Moody Blues, as evidenced by such releases as 1972s self-titled debut, 1973s Styx II, 1974s The Serpent Is Rising and 1975s Man of Miracles. While the albums helped the group build a substantial following locally, Styx failed to break through to the mainstream, until a track originally from their second album, Lady started to get substantial airplay in late 1974 on the Chicago radio station WLS-FM. The song was soon issued as a single nationwide, and quickly shot to No. 6 on the singles chart, as Styx II was certified gold. By this time, however, the group had grown disenchanted with their record label, and opted to sign on with A&M for their fifth release overall, 1975s Equinox. On the eve of the tour in support of the album, original guitarist John Curulewski abruptly left the band, and was replaced by Photo by ASH NEWELL/ABC PUBLIC RELATIONSStyx performs as part of the Soundtrack of Summer tour on May 20 at Ruth Eckerd Hall.Tommy Shaw. Shaw proved to be the missing piece of the puzzle for Styx, as most of their subsequent releases throughout the late s earned at least platinum certification, including 1976s Crystal Ball, 1977s The Grand Illusion, 1978s Pieces of Eight and 1979s Cornerstone, and spawned such hit singles and classic rock radio standards as Come Sail Away, Renegade, Blue Collar Man and Fooling Yourself. The band decided that their first release of the s would be a concept album, 1981s Paradise Theater, which was loosely based on the rise and fall of a oncebeautiful theater. Paradise Theater became Styxs biggest hit of their career, selling more than three million copies in a threeyear period. The band became one of the U.S. top rock acts due to such big hit singles as Too Much Time on My Hands. It also marked the first time in history that a band released four consecutive triple-platinum albums. In 1984, Styx released a careerencompassing live album, Caught in the Act. Not long after that, the band went on hiatus, as the majority of its members pursued solo projects throughout the remainder of the decade. A greatest hits compilation led to a reunion tour in 1996. The tour proved to be a success and resulted in the release of Return to Paradise, a live album and video. Don FelderDon Felder is the former lead guitarist of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. According to an artist biography provided by Paradigm Talent Agency, the bands record-setting compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) sold more than 29 million copies in the United States alone and was awarded by the RIAA the top-selling album of the 20th century. Currently Felder and the Eagles have sold more than 83.5 million albums. A member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1998, Felder served as a member of The Eagles for 27 years, putting his mark on numerous Eagles milestones. He originated the music and co-wrote The Eagles biggest hit the iconic smash Hotel California along with fan favorites like Victim of Love and Those Shoes.

Renegade 16. Too Much Time On My Hands 17. Hotel CaliforniaLARGO Boasting seasoned metal veterans with imposing credentials, it would be easy to call The Winery Dogs a supergroup. The power trio is out to prove its much more than a run-of-the-mill supergroup. The Winery Dogs hit the stage Thursday, May 15, 7:30 p.m., at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets are $24.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. The Winery Dogs features Richie Kotzen on vocals and guitar, Billy Sheehan on bass and vocals and Mike Portnoy on drums and vocals. Kotzen made his mark with Poison and Mr. Big; Sheehan has been rocking for decades with Steve Vai, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and others; and Portnoy was the co-founder of progressive metal superstars Dream Theater. The talented rock band downplays the supergroup label many assigned to them when they formed in 2012. In their view, supergroups tend to be short-lived entities composed of gifted players that jam out for little while and then quickly record with the hopes of catching lightning in a bottle. Moreover, theyre often the sum of their collective parts. Thats not the case with The Winery Dogs, a cohesive, well-rounded classic-sounding trio whose music is influenced by classic rock icons such as Led Zeppelin, Cream and Jimi Hendrix, as well as modern rockers such as Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Lenny Kravitz. The groups self-titled 2013 debut is filled with straightforward rock and roll inspired by some of their favorite bands. The music transcends any of the styles the individual artists are best known for. We all have our own distinct voicings and styles, but we also have a common ground of music we grew up listening to, said Kotzen in a press release provided by Paradise Artists. What makes the band so special is that somehow, in our collaboration, none of us lost our identity. We all sound like who we are yet we make music that is fresh and exciting and sounds like a new band. Theres a natural chemistry that came together; its one of those things thats meant to be. The glam-metal band Poison features prominently in Kotzens rsum: He joined the outfit in 1991 at age 21, performing on and contributing material to the album Native Tongue. He co-wrote Stand and Until You Suffer Some (Fire & Ice), two top 20 singles, and stayed with the band through 1993. In 1999, he joined Mr. Big. I like the fact that everybody comes from a different background, though there are similarities to them, said Sheehan. We have is a real special bond that wouldnt happen if we were all into exactly the same things. We brought disparate elements together and made them into a unified band. Sheehan has been performing professionally since the 1970s when he formed the power trio Talas with Dave Constantino and Paul Varga. Talas opened a string of shows for Van Halen in 1980. Not long after, Sheehan left Talas to join David Lee Roths solo band. Debut albumThe Winery Dogs released their self-titled album in 2013, showcasing 13 tracks that groove and swing without sacrificing any of the grit that makes great hard rock so inspiring. The opening song, Elevate, starts with a bang, as slamming drums and a visceral riff mesh into a rhythm of sheer power. Then the gifted musicians end the stanza in a flurry of precision playing before dropping down to a bass drum thump and sustained guitar feedback over which Kotzen sings, Lost in the dark, I feel like a shadow of myself. Then the band kicks back into overdrive and the song repeats its tension and release until it reaches the euphoric chorus, Elevate me, take me hire/ I dont want to be wasted. The push-pull dynamic illustrates how The Winery Dogs toy with established styles and turn them into something special, complete with Sheehans acrobatic bass fills and Kotzens rapid-fire solos, which help The Winery Dogs blend in a way thats both instantly recognizable and utterly individual. Desire is slinkier and more sensual, starting with a lone staccato guitar, but rapidly morphing into a something more infectious than teenage mono, wah-wah guitars pumping along with throbbing bass rhythms and a sturdy backbeat. Before the song is over, The Winery Dogs have engaged in a full-scale workout of funk-inflected and blues-embellished hard rock, capped with the vocal I dont think that I can let go. When we were writing, wed get together and play and everything was really natural and automatic and fell together in a really cool way, Sheehan said. Some of the jams we did on the record are pretty spontaneous. Wed launch into them and let nature its course. Honestly, the hardest thing was deciding which songs were our favorites. Wed finish something and be totally happy with it. And then wed do the next song and go, No, man, thats our new favorite! It was a rare and beautiful thing. Sometimes birth is hard labor, but these songs just popped out. According to the band, The Winery Dogs is a labor of love written from the heart, revealing unexpected shades of melodic eclecticism and lyrical vulnerability. Kotzens vocals powerful vocals and extraordinary guitar playing is anchored by Sheehans expert bass lines, which root the songs and provide a lock-and-step foundation for Portnoy to play around. The band createsWinery DogsPower trio made up of veteran rockers to perform at Largo Cultural Centerlyrical, signature guitar work on legendary songs like Hotel California, One of These Nights and New Kid In Town. Hotel California was recently voted the No. 1 best 12-string guitar song in the world by Guitar World magazine. After leaving the group in 2001, Felder also became a New York Times bestselling author when his riveting confessional memoir Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles proved a major commercial triumph upon publication in 2008 and went on to become a New York Times best seller. More recently, Felder has worked in both sessions and live performances with numerous music legends spanning the musical spectrum: The Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Bob Seger, Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Kenny Loggins, David Crosby, Gramusic that seesaws between primal simplicity and time-honored virtuosity. Its very exciting for me to be in a solid rock trio, Portnoy said in the press release. Stylistically, the bulk of my career has been spent playing progressive music, so this was an opportunity for me to do something that wasnt prog or metal. After a 25-year stint with the band he co-founded, Portnoy left Dream Theater in 2010. He enjoyed immense success with the prog-metal band, scoring 29 awards from Modern Drummer magazine. He is the second youngest person after Neil Peart of Rush to be inducted into Modern Drummers Hall of Fame. During his tenure with Dream Theater, he also worked on many side projects, including Transatlantic, a prog-rock supergroup featuring former Spocks Beard keyboardist/vocalist Neal Morse, Flower Kings guitarist Roine Stolt and Marillion bassist Pete Trewavas. With The Winery Dogs, Portnoy enjoys the shift in musical style. Its more classic rock and, at the end of the day thats what I grew up with and thats the biggest influence in my life, he said. Im just at home playing on a small four-piece kit doing a simple John Bonham groove as I am playing complex tempos on a giant kit. And thats been a great breath of fresh air for me.Photo courtesy of PARADISE ARTISTSFrom left, Billy Sheehan, Richie Kotzen and Mike Portnoy, performing as The Winery Dogs, visit Largo Cultural Center May 15.

Syrupped and featheredPublix manager celebrates his store raising over $10k for the March of Dimes By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Following his stores success during the March of Dimes signature fundraiser, March for Babies, Paul Cook, manager of the Publix on 113th Street and Park Boulevard, celebrated in the most unique way he could think of: on May 1, he let his employees cover him in maple syrup and feathers, and wandered down to 113th Street, where he clucked like a chicken. The store raised $10,300 for the cause in March, surpassing its original goal of $9,000. Only three times in Publix history has one of its stores raised more than $10,000, said Natalie Ison, a Publix representative. So the 113th Streets store is significant, she said. Cook said he set a goal for his store of $9,000, but told his employees that if they went above the $10,000 mark, hed let them syrup and feather him. I wanted to give them something to help motivate them, he said. He attributes this years success to the closing of Publix stores in Indian Rocks and Madeira Beach. Weve been a little bit busier because of that, he said. For nearly two decades, Publix stores across the country have supported the March of Dimes each spring.

The Swap-n-Shop, which kicked off April 13, offers the every day person the chance to sell or swap their goods, said Jennifer Pisco, who founded the group. Items vary from artwork and jewelry to lotions and balms, and browsers can even pick up homegrown flowers and veggies. A lot of the vendors just do this for a hobby, she said. So this gives them the chance to show off their skills and maybe make a little extra money. But its also a good way for vendors to jumpstart a business, before taking their wares to larger markets, she said. One woman lost her job right before the April 27 Swap-n-Shop, and showed up with furniture to sell. She said, This is my job for now, Pisco said. Pisco, who works full-time as a graphic No Democrat in District 13 race By SUZETTE PORTERThe qualifying period to run for a spot in the U.S. House of Representatives ended Friday, May 2. The list of candidates posted at the Florida Division of Elections website, showed one Republican, one Libertarian, one no party affiliation and one write-in candidate. The Democrats say they are backing the NPA. The incumbent, Republican David Jolly of Indian Shores was one the four who qualified. He defeated Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby of Clearwater in a special election on March 13 to fill seat left vacant after longtime U.S. Representative C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18, 2013. Sink announced April 15 that she would not be running in the Nov. 4 election. Overby announced April 21 that he too was bowing out of the race. On May 2, Overby announced he was back in. After much deliberation and a number of careful consultations with my family, campaign team and community, I have decided to renew by candidacy for the 13th Congressional District seat, Overby said in a press release. Pinellas County deserves real choices on the ballot in November, by running for this office, I can serve my community by helping to ensure a real dialogue and discussion on the issues facing us. Overby thanked the Rev. Manuel Sykes, a Democrat, who had considered running against Jolly, for his support and encouragement. Jolly and Overby will be opposed by NPA candidate Ed Jany of Tampa and write-in candidate Michael Stephen Levinson of St. Petersburg. Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant issued a statement May 2, declaring the partys support for the NPA candidate. Like so many in Pinellas County, (Ret.) Col. Ed Jany is sick and tired of Congressman David Jollys dysfunctional Republican Congress that puts special interest ahead of seniors, women, and working families, Tant said. Col.

OR Tax holiday helps Floridians prepare for hurricane season By SUZETTE PORTERFlorida lawmakers approved a Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday, which begins May 31 and continues through June 8. Hurricane season begins June 1 and continues through Nov. 30. Government should encourage rather than hinder Floridians from preparing their homes and families for severe weather that threatens our state during hurricane season, said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, in a May 2 press release the last day of the 2014 legislative session. The legislature also approved a back-to-school tax holiday scheduled for Aug. 1-3 and a sales tax holiday for energy efficient products from Sept. 19-21 for the first $1,500 of the sales price for new Energy Star or WaterSense products. During the hurricane preparedness tax holiday, the following items are exempt from state sales tax and county discretionary sales surtaxes: Portable self-powered light sources selling for $20 or less Portable self-powered radio, two-way radio, or weather band radio selling for $50 or less Tarpaulins or other flexible waterproof sheeting selling for $50 or less Self-contained first-aid kits selling for $30 or less Ground anchor systems or tie-down kits selling for $50 or less Gas or diesel fuel tanks selling for $25 or less Packages of AA-cell, C-cell, D-cell, 6-volt, or 9-volt batteries, excluding automobile and boat batteries, selling for $30 or less Nonelectric food storage coolers selling for $30 or less A portable generator selling for $750 or less Reusable ice selling for $10 or less Pinellas Countys Emergency Management is urging residents to begin hurricane preparations now, including finalizing their plans. In the latest eLert, residents are asked to finish stocking their survival kits, check their evacuation levels and update lists of important papers and phone numbers. Renowned hurricane forecasters Dr. William Gray and Dr. Phillip Klotzbach with the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University are predicting a below-average season in 2014. Despite the quiet forecast, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them, the forecasters said in report released April 10. They are reminded to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much or how little activity is predicted. Gray and Klotzbach predict nine named storms will form in the Atlantic Basin this year and three will strengthen into hurricanes and one will become a major hurricane. They say there is a 35 percent chance that a hurricane will make landfall somewhere on the U.S. coast and a 20 percent chance one will come ashore on the east coast, including the peninsula of Florida.

Col. Jany will be a voice for Main Street values and will work to bring commonsense solutions to a place where theyre needed most: the halls of Congress. The Florida Democratic Party proudly supports Col. Ed Jany. Tant explained that Jany, who is a registered Democrat, is forced to run as a NPA candidate due to state law that requires candidates to be registered with a political party 365 days prior to qualifying. Jany changed his political affiliation from Republican to Democrat several months ago, Tant said. But it was too late to qualify to run as a Democratic candidate for the District 13 seat. Republican Gus Bilirakis of Tarpon Springs, who currently serves District 12, which includes the northern sections of Pinellas, qualified unopposed and will keep his seat. Democrat Kathy Castor of Tampa, who represents District 14, which includes a portion of south St. Petersburg, also qualified without opposition. DISTRICT 13, from page 1ACounty employees re-assigned to St. Petersburg College By SUZETTE PORTERTwo key Pinellas County employees will spend a few months at St. Petersburg College. Former administrator Bob LaSala and Gwendolyn Warren, former executive director of Health and Community Services, have been relieved of their duties with county government and have new work assignments at SPC. The county will continue to pay their salaries. Commission Chair Karen Seel sent a letter to LaSala April 24, letting him know that he had been re-assigned as a loaned executive to SPC. This new assignment is effective immediately and shall run through your July 14, 2014 termination date, Seel wrote. President (William) Law will be utilizing your experience in the ongoing work of the college related to the economic and community development and within the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. According to the letter, LaSalas new work site in in Clearwater. Commissioners voted unanimously April 15 to terminate LaSala. His contract calls for 90-day notice. LaSala received unfavorable results during this annual review. Commissioners have been concerned about miscommunications with some of the countys partners, especially those who provide fire and emergency services and health and community services. Interim Administrator Mark Woodard sent a similar letter to Warren April 24 informing her that she had been re-assigned as a loaned executive to SPC. The assignment runs through June 30 Warrens retirement date. As this is a full-time assignment, your duties as executive director of Health and Community Services are now suspended and have been transferred to others, Woodard wrote. Please coordinate with Lynda Leedy to arrange for the removal of all personal property from your office Saturday, April 26 and on that day return all county property Leedy, former deputy director of HCS, is now interim director. Warren will assist SPC with its wellness program at an office on the Clearwater campus. Her first day on her new job was April 28. Warren first ran into trouble with the commission during a revamp of the county Veterans Services. Recently, she has come under fire during talks about changes to the medical care program for the indigent population. Seel sent a letter to county employees April 17 informing them of LaSalas termination and Woodards appointment as interim administrator, pending approval of the commission at an April 22 work session, which was unanimous. I know that with change comes stress from the unknown, rumors due to miscommunication and the perception of chaos, Seel told employees. I know it has been difficult times, stressed by restructuring and entire department upheavals, bringing many changes in personnel. I want you to feel free to do your job and to continue to do it well without worry or stress. Through all of these challenges, you all have continued to set the standard for public service.Right, former Health and Community Services Executive Director Gwendolyn Warren presents information about a contract for design of the Bayside Health Campus during a Feb. 26 commission meeting.

A tradition in your neighborhood.Expert touts advantages of improved transitST. PETERSBURG Economic leaders throughout the Tampa Bay area have labored for years to attract high-tech, well-paying jobs to help bolster our economy. During an April 23 presentation to the PSTA Board of Directors, Darnell Grisby, director of policy development and research from the American Public Transportation Association, raised eyebrows when he noted the economic impact of high-tech jobs. One high-tech sector job, he said, can support up to six other local jobs, such as lawyers, construction workers and plumbers. That statistic was part of Grisbys presentation on the changing travel patterns of millennials, as opposed to older generations, and how 18 to 34 year-olds are increasingly embracing transit use and communities that offer viable transportation options. The data is from a recent study released by APTA: Millennials and Mobility and shows that younger generations are leading a trend of Americans who are returning to walkable cities and suburbs that feature vibrant public transit. A recently corroborated trend by a separate study released by the Rockefeller Foundation and Transportation for America concluded that 54 percent of Millennials would consider moving to another city if it had more and better options for getting around. Sixty-six percent said that access to high quality transportation is one of the top three criteria they would weigh when deciding where to live. PSTA and economic development officials believe these trends only further enforce the need to build a robust transit system to help keep and attract new talent coveted by high paying industries such as software, internet and scientific research. To be able to attract the very best people from around the country we need to have transit options, said Mike Meidel, Pinellas County Economic Development Director. Numerous studies over the past few years commissioned by Zipcar also show that Millennials, on average, are now more willing to give up a car than their cell phones. The smartphone is closing the gap between the perceived benefits of the car versus public transportation, Grisby said. As more transit agencies around the nation deploy real-time applications that allow customers to know down to the minute where the bus will be, increasingly transit users will be able to be as spontaneous as the automobile user. PSTA is already taking advantage of that growing trend thanks to Real Time Bus Information System, which debuted last fall. The system lets riders use cell phones, smartphones, computers or texts to find out when the next bus will arrive at their stop.

It is a time when we get to thank our childrens educators for all they do for our kids. They play such an important part of our childs life. I am so thankful for the teachers I had while going to school. For the most part, I had wonderful teachers who helped me become the person I am today. My daughters, who are now in second and fourth grade, also have had fantastic teachers so far during their first few years of school. My girls love going to school, and it has a lot to do with their teachers. Both my daughters have had teachers that are very caring and nice. When you think about it, elementary school teachers spend almost as much time as we do as parents with our children during the week. And todays teachers have so much on their plate. They have to be more than teachers. Because of todays society and the homelife of a lot of kids, teachers have had to take on an even bigger role in a childs life. Some of todays educators are the only positive influence a child has. Teachers today are role models and play a big impact in our childs life. Recently, I was asked to attend an awards ceremony for fifty middle and high school students who turned their lives around. It was called Pinellas Countys Turnaround Achievement Awards. The Krauss family, who own the Seminole Lanes bowling alley, hosted the event. This awards ceremony captured the essence of just how important an educator can be. A lot of these students lives were changed because of teachers who took time and cared about a student who may have been going in the wrong direction. Some of the students were in trouble all the time, some were making terrible grades and some were missing a lot of school. Because a teacher or coach took an interest and let them know they truly cared about them, these students lives were changed. The stories I heard that day were incredible and brought tears to my eyes. During the ceremony, the educator gave you a glimpse of how the student was and how they changed. The student, in turn, thanked the person who made a difference in their life. Some of these students were going nowhere fast and now they have scholarships to universities. It is important to thank those who make a difference in our childs lives. So I thank all of our educators. You deserve this week of appreciation and continued appreciation throughout the year.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls, lives in Seminole.

Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The remaining dates for the Swap-n-Shop are May 11 and 25, and June 8 and 22.

That is, until family caregivers consider the value of the time and financial sacrifices made to care for a loved one. If you are a family caregiver, you know all too well that the responsibility requires a considerable amount of your time time and attention your loved one deserves. As a caregiver, you are on call day and night. You coordinate transportation to and from medical appointments, grocery shopping and other errands. You have another home to clean. You are the one who helps pay bills, provides companionship for your loved one and takes care of other tasks as needed. This is often in addition to holding down a job and caring for your immediate family. When you work with a reputable in-home care agency, such as Comfort Keepers, you will still be in charge of the care your loved one receives. You just will not be responsible for the time-consuming, day-to-day care giving responsibilities. In addition to peace of mind, our in-home care delivers a wide range of services, working with seniors and their families to create care plans that meet their specific needs. These individual care plans allow seniors the opportunity to age in place, safely and securely. Our services provide support to help preserve seniors' dignity and independence as well. Comfort Keepers requires a two-hour minimum visit and we base our services around your loved ones needs. It may be meal prep, light housekeeping, a bath visit or it may be both. We create a plan of care that can be affordable and at the same time, specific needs are met on a weekly basis. The greatest benefit to hiring a caregiver from an organization that employs its caregivers is the oversight provided and convenience for everyone involved. Details are not your responsibility. The biggest distinction with Comfort Keepers is: We employ the caregiver, and clients are not burdened with employer laws and requirements. Our employees undergo rigorous background checks, interviews and reference validations. Our caregivers are covered by workers' compensation, general liability and bonding insurance.

Rick Scott was joined by Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey, Florida sheriffs and police chiefs in Tampa April 23 to announce that Floridas crime rate had dropped 4.7 percent compared to 2012, putting Florida at a 43-year crime low. The findings were based on the Uniform Crime Report. In a press release, Scott said, Today we have more good news for families. Even while Floridas population grows, the total number of crimes continues to drop, which is a testament to our brave men and women who serve in our communities each and every day. Florida is now at a 43-year crime low. Our lower crime rate means that not only are our families and communities safer, but Florida is in a better position to create more opportunities for Floridians. This drop in crime shows everyone that Florida really is the best place to raise a family. State Attorney General Pam Bondi said, Making Florida a safe place to live, work, and raise a family is my main goal, and thanks to the hard work of our superior law enforcement officers and prosecutors, we have the lowest crime rate in 43 years. I am grateful to all of the public servants who work tirelessly to make our communities safer. Their work has made a tremendous difference, as evidenced by a crime rate that has dropped for the past three consecutive years. The total number of crimes fell 3.8 percent from last year, which translates into 27,380 fewer crimes in 2013. The number of violent crimes was also down 2.4 percent. Murder is down 3.9 percent, forcible sex offenses and robbery each declined 2.8 percent and aggravated assault is down 2.1 percent. There were 15 fewer victims of domestic violence in 2013 with cohabitants being the largest group of victims in this category, with spouses remaining the second largest group. Law enforcement officers made 904,634 arrests last year, almost 2,500 arrests per day. The report also contains information on officers killed feloniously. Two law enforcement officers died from criminal causes while on duty during 2013. In addition, two law enforcement officers died accidently during the course of duty. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri released the 2013 PCSO crime stats May 17, which showed a 5.8 percent decrease in total Part 1 Crimes and a 5 percent decrease in the overall crime rate in the Sheriffs service area for 2013. This marks the fifth consecutive year of a decrease in Part 1 Crimes for the area patrolled by the Pinellas Sheriffs Office, with an overall five-year decrease of 23.8 percent. Part One crimes are murder, forcible sex, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Uniform Crime Report system. The complete 2013 Annual Uniform Crime Report, including county-by-county breakdowns, can be found on FDLEs website at www.fdle.state.fl.us /fsac/ucr. FDLE began tracking crime statistics in 1971. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Detectives with the Largo Police Department investigated the theft of more than $500,000 in cigarettes and cash from Dosal Tobacco Corporations distribution center in Largo, resulting in charges against two former employees within the last month. Detective Lance Wagoner, with the assistance of Detective Keith Wedin, began the investigation into a $350,000 theft from the Dosal warehouse, in the 13800 block of U.S. 19, March 20. They worked with the manager of the Largo warehouse, as well as Dosals national sales manager. Dosal is a multimillion-dollar company that produces cigarettes in Miami and markets them worldwide under the brands Competidora, DTC, Romy and 305s. The investigation made it clear that two suspects were stealing independently of one another, police reported. To gather evidence, Wagoner and Wedin canvassed 38 convenience stores in Pinellas and Pasco counties and interviewed the owners. Detectives discovered that former employee Basem Quasem Shahin, 36, took about $50,000 in currency and money orders from accounts on his route in St. Petersburg, according to police. Shahin quit his job with Dosal before police were notified of the theft. Wagoner collaborated with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and learned that Shahin had taken flight to the country of Jordan. Police are seeking a warrant for his arrest, charging him with a second-degree felony scheme to defraud. Another suspect former employee Scott Joseph Delemeester, 31, of St. Petersburg was arrested for a first-degree felony scheme to defraud April 28. He is accused of stealing $293,787 in cigarettes. The second suspects case was a bit more problematic, as it involved the detectives having to learn about the inventory control system, computerized devices and standard operating procedures used by the company, explained Sgt. Randall Chaney of Largos investigative services division. An executive with Dosal flew to Pinellas County to give her expert testimony and help detectives develop probable cause in the case. In the course of the five-week investigation, police also discovered that Delemeester stole from his employer two years ago, according to reports. Police will pursue a second charge, bringing the total of Delemeesters thefts to over $500,000. Largo Police Chief Jeff Undestad praised his detectives for their work in a citywide email about the case. A great deal of time goes into investigations like this and not all have a successful outcome like this one, he wrote.Former employees accused of stealing $500,000 in cash and cigarettes Scott Joseph Delemeester To report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested a St. Petersburg man April 26 for felony animal cruelty after finding his dog living in deplorable conditions. Deputies were called to the Caroline Trailer Court, 6418 Haines Road in unincorporated St. Petersburg at about 8:42 a.m. Saturday in reference to a found dog. When deputies arrived, they found a German Shepard mixed breed dog that appeared to be malnourished, emaciated and covered in fleas. Deputies were able to locate the dogs owner, Jason Leigh Aldridge, 38, who reportedly told deputies he did not know the dog had left his home. As deputies conducted their investigation, they discovered Aldridge was feeding the dog from a plastic bag of food infested with bugs. The dogs bed and area where the dog spent the majority of his time was soiled with urine and feces. Food and water bowls were empty. According to deputies, Aldridge told them the dog named Rocky was 17-years-old and his health had been deteriorating, but he had not been to a vet recently due to lack of money. Deputies contacted Pinellas County Animal Services and staff took possession of the dog. As of April 26, Rocky weighed 47 pounds. Deputies arrested Aldridge for one count of felony animal cruelty. He was transported to the Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $5,000. He was released from jail the same day.

S pecial 1 Time Offer 76 Years Combined ExperienceFred J. Menth Richard (Bo) Bulmanski Rising water temperatures should increase actionSummer-like weather over the past week has pushed our water temperatures up to about what they should be for this time of year. The warmer water should hopefully accelerate the baitfish migration to the area. Thus far this spring season has been pretty light on bait. Those willing to get up early have had success filling the live well with scaled sardines. However, once the sun comes up, cast-netting live bait has been tough to say the least. The best kingfish action remains in 30 to 50 foot of water. Artificial reefs in this depth are key places to target, as well as near shore hard-bottom areas as shallow as 20 foot. Trolling either live blue runners or silver spoons behind a number 2 planer has been working well. Most of the fish have been in the 10-pound range, with fish up to 20 pounds being fairly common. The redfish has dominated the inshore scene. Big high tides brought on by this last moon phase allowed anglers to target reds along the mangroves for extended periods of time. Warmer water has prompted the reds to feed much better than a couple of weeks ago, and having a well full of scaled sardines doesnt hurt, either. Target the points along the mangrove shorelines. These small points will usually have an oyster bar around them and when the tide is high, the reds like to sit right on top of the oyster. Pier anglers fishing the De Soto piers and the Skyway piers are catching plenty of pompano. Catch these tasty critters by bouncing Crazy jigs off the bottom. Early mornings have provided the best action. Expect plenty of Spanish mackerel to be hanging around the piers as well. Cast Gotcha plugs, silver spoons or live threadfins.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.

Everest University shows some Earth Day love in LargoLARGO The Nature Preserve at Largo Central Park received special attention on Earth Day as Everest University-Largo gave its adopted park a cleanup. On April 22, students, faculty and staff grabbed rubber gloves and garbage bags for three hours of trash pickup at the park, situated at 150 Highland Ave. SE. We adopted the Largo Central Park Nature Preserve two years ago as a way to give back, said Todd Emmons, coordinator of the regular park cleanup and massage therapy instructor at Everest University-Largo. Part of the soft skills we teach at Everest is the importance of volunteering and doing something good for the community where we live. The Largo Recreation, Parks and Arts Department erected a plaque to Everest for its dedication in keeping the Nature Preserve clean. Everest works closely with Greg Wright, parks supervisor, to help rid the park of pollution. Its 31 acres are home to more than 130 species of birds. The American alligator, otters, the red fox, wild turkeys, marsh rabbits and bats all feed or live in the park. Much of the garbage accumulates in the Nature Preserves marshlands, where it is carried by surface water runoff. Studies show that volunteering provides physical and mental rewards, including mood lifts and stress relief. It brings people together, promotes personal growth and helps students better understand the makeup of the community where they live. Most importantly, students who have low self-esteem gain a new perspective. They learn their value by seeing they are needed and that every person counts. Everest Universitys Largo campus is at 1199 E. Bay Drive, Largo. For more information, visit www.ever est.edu.Photo courtesy of EVEREST UNIVERSITYEverest University-Largo has adopted the Nature Preserve at Largo Central Park and committed to keeping the diverse ecosystem clean. Taking part in the cleanup April 22 are, front row, from left, Georgette Hodson, Ashley Ruch and Kevin Smiley; back row, Tam Nguyen, Stephanie Fay, Tracey Elkins, Todd Emmons, Casey Bachelder and Allyssa Weiss.

Throndsen is Prepare Florida PHSS coordinator. Most Floridians are underprepared for disaster: less than one-third of Floridas population has a family disaster plan. The diverse and varied composition of our states population also poses unique challenges, especially for our most vulnerable: seniors, children, migrant workers, underserved populations and tourists. Included in the plans of the campaign is the goal to train 500,000 people in lifesaving first aid, CPR and AED skills over the next three years. Research has shown that continuous Citizen CPR can be effective in caring for a person with no signs of life when a rescuer is unable, untrained or unwilling to perform full CPR. The best way for a bystander to help is by calling 9-1-1 and using Hands-Only CPR. Its simple to do and theres no mouth-tomouth contact. In a life threatening situation, performing Hands-Only CPR is better than doing nothing at all. There are no prerequisites or minimum age to participate in the 30-minute course. The Citizen CPR training is not intended to substitute for a formal training course. Citizen CPR is not a certification course. To register, call Pinch-A-Penny at 397-6817. Pinch-A-Penny, Pool-Patio-Spa/Hot Tub Store is a local franchise owned by long-time Seminole residents by Trish and Don Nuckols.

Chef and owner Michael Athanasopoulos competed in the competition in March. This was Pizza Bizzars first year at the event and the competition was fierce.

Congratulations to Luca, the May pet photo of the month winner. Luca is a 6year-old Chihuahua who lives with his parents, Sophia Renee and Michael Leishman in Indian Rocks Beach. They have raised Luca since he was small enough to fit in a coffee cup. Even full-grown, he only weighs 4 pounds and was the runt of the litter, but dont tell him that. He grew up with two pit bull siblings, Willis and Lola, and always thought he was far tougher than them. And at least as big. He loves sunbathing, burrowing in blankets and warm crevices, and has endearing obsessive habits. But what his mom loves most about him is that even though he is all grown up, he still looks and behaves like a puppy. For better or for worse, hes still very dependent on his moms presence and is the happiest when hes with her. He is never far from her lap and she loves and takes comfort in this constant affection from her best friend. Her favorite quality about Luca is his personality and how he seems to feel about her. Ive had dogs my whole life but never a dog that looked at me with such intensity and relied on me so much, she said. I truly feel the enormous love he has for me and the comfort he takes from having me close. As pet of the month winner, Luca and his family won a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park.

This frightening disease should not be ignored because of the consequences for our pets, as well as the potential for it to spread to people. Leptosporosis, commonly abbreviated as lepto, is a bacterial disease. It is typically spread by the urine of infected wildlife, including squirrels, rats, mice, opossums and raccoons. Unfortunately, these critters inhabit most of our backyards, so even dogs that never leave their own yard have the potential to be exposed. The bacteria also can live for some time in puddles and in the soil. The symptoms can be vague, which is why some call lepto the great mimicker. In dogs, abdominal pain, fever, loss of appetite, vomiting, and changes in the frequency of urination are all potential signs but are frustratingly signs of many other diseases as well. The testing for lepto can be difficult, time consuming and expensive, leaving many cases undiagnosed. Untreated, leptosporosis can lead to liver and kidney failure and be fatal. When a dog becomes infected with the leptosporosis bacteria, they tend to drink more and pass the bacteria through their urine. Because the bacteria can be cutaneously spread, or is contagious through the skin, this puts human family members who come in contact with the infected urine at risk. According to the CDC, symptoms in people include fever, headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, jaundice, anemia, and sometimes a rash, and can lead to kidney damage, liver failure, and even brain and respiratory disorders. If properly diagnosed, lepto is treatable with antibiotics in both dogs and people. In 2005, more than 40 people in Tampa caught leptosporosis after an adventure race that involved running though standing water around the Hillsborough River; it is in our immediate area. There are several vaccines for leptosporosis in dogs that do an excellent job of preventing disease, but they are often underutilized for several reasons. Many dog owners decline the vaccine, mistakenly thinking that their dog would have to catch it from another dog. Years ago, veterinary schools mistakenly taught that only boar-hunting hounds needed to be vaccinated; at the time, it was not understood that other wildlife carried the bacteria. The second reason the vaccine is underutilized is because it is by far one of the most reactive vaccines, and some pets simply cannot get it without having a vaccine reaction. Studies have shown the general risk of a vaccine reaction is more with very small dogs and certain breeds, such as dachshunds. Leptosporosis is a truly scary disease. Pet owners should be vigilant and careful, and not become a statistic in the University of Floridas spike in cases.

Viewpoints 17A Seminole Beacon, May 8, 2014Intersections are a part of every commute, and they can be extremely dangerous, reflected by how many accidents we see. In Pinellas County, U.S. 19 and Tampa Road has had the most crashes of any intersection over the past six years, partly because its the fourth most congested intersection in the county. In second place is the Curlew Road and U.S. 19 intersection, which is in the same vicinity. In all, eight of the top 25 crash intersections are along the U.S. 19 corridor. But no matter what routes you take, its up to you to watch the road and make adjustments as needed. These days, drivers are more distracted than ever. Many drivers tend to ignore what is in front of them as they text on their phones, tend to passengers, eat, or who knows what else. These distractions can lead to heading into an intersection too fast, then slamming on the brakes, which can cause a collision. So with this in mind, here are some tips for drivers to avoid crashes at intersections: Look ahead. Never rely solely on the brake lights in front of you to know when to stop. Always look ahead at traffic patterns and signals. Paying attention to upcoming traffic will help you gauge if the light will be red when you get there. Avoid tunnel vision and only watching the car directly in front of you. Know when to stop at a yellow light. A yellow light does not mean that you should simply speed up to get through the intersection. Instead, it is a caution signal alerting you to be prepared to stop. Generally, if youre going the speed limit 100 feet or less from the intersection when the light turns yellow, you have passed the point of no return and cant stop safely. If this occurs, drive through to avoid sudden braking. However, if youre not yet in that zone, be prepared to stop. Beware of following large vehicles too closely. If a truck or large vehicle is in front of you, maintain enough space so that youre able to see past it. Or, if possible, try to get around the vehicle so that you can have better visibility of the road ahead. Monitor your speed. In many accidents, speed is a factor. The faster you go, the less time youre going to have to react if something unforeseen happens in front of you. Be careful with turns. Have you ever been driving and gotten over to the turning lane, only to realize it isnt where you want to go? If you find yourself in a similar situation, make the turn and then reroute yourself to get back on track. Trying to suddenly get back over into the other lane is dangerous and against the law if within the solid white lines. Its also important to note that not all crashes at these intersections are between vehicles. Pedestrians have accounted for 6 percent of all crashes at Pinellas intersections over the past six years. Whether youre on foot or on a bicycle, always stay alert to your surroundings and follow these safety rules: Look both ways, and then look again before you cross. When crossing high-speed intersections as a pedestrian, it is important to take a second glance and always use the crosswalk. Just because you have the right of way, this doesnt mean you shouldnt still pay attention to traffic. Make sure no cars are running a red light. Vehicles going 60 mph can cover a quarter mile in 15 seconds. You also need to watch out for cars turning right on a red light. Many drivers slow down but not all come to a complete stop or yield to pedestrians. Be visible. Bright clothing and reflectors help keep you visible to drivers, especially at night. Follow the rules of the road. Even while riding a bike, as long as youre on the road, youre subject to the same rules as vehicles.

As we grow older, our body parts begin to show wear and tear. Our bones creak and pop. We start to slow down. Medical science has done wonders in delaying the effects of aging. Most of us can look forward to a long life even if we have to take a handful of drugs every day. While we work to increase longevity, it seems little progress is being made to increase communication between the generations. In fact, some say its getting worse. Life experience is being devalued more and more especially in light of all the technological advances.The young remain convinced they know better than their elders, and the elders know the younger generation has a lot to learn. I remember thinking of the older generation as the naysayers. They never seemed to listen to ideas, and they rarely let me try them not that it stopped me. Sometimes I paid the heavy price for my youthful spontaneity. Now that Im older, I realize the ideas proposed as a former member of the younger generation were in reality a case of been there and done that for my elders. They actually said no with good reason. But poor communication skills on both sides result in generational conflict. Instead of the younger generation respectfully questioning their elders about their experience, they turn away, disgruntled because no one takes them seriously or lets them do anything. Elders could try to explain, but it probably would do no good. The younger generation isnt known for its listening skills. And, older folks arent known for their patience. I do still remember when I was younger. It really wasnt that long ago. Im not yet ancient. It pretty much infuriates me when its implied that because Im now an older woman, I cant understand. Trust me. I get it. Ive been there and done that more times than Ill admit. I remember thinking why do they do it that way, its so stupid. Now, I know many things happen as they do because thats how it works literally. I also know there is little in life that cant be improved. It is true that old folks get set in their ways. Its comfortable. We like to invoke, the if it aint broke, dont fix it rule. We really dont care if the younger generation thinks were stupid. Theyll know better when they get to be our age, as we did and the generations before. Then theres a matter of respect. The younger generation doesnt seem to have much respect for their elders. Were dated and not very smart about the real world, or so they say. We cant even type with our thumbs! Yet, they demand our respect and thrive on our praise, while secretly planning our demise. They covet our ability to take on more responsibility something they perceive as power. Imagine what could happen if the younger generation recognized the value of experience and understood what it meant to earn that prized position of seniority. What if they understood seniority in the workplace didnt just mean more vacation time and maybe a bigger salary. Seniority really means many years of job/life experience. But just for a moment, lets imagine young people and old people working together respectfully to create that better world. Of course, it would take improved communication skills and I dont mean texting. It would require those with seniority taking time to listen to an idea even if it has been tried and failed. Instead of the younger generation dissing their elders, they would learn from their experience and use it to come up with something never tried something new. If the young could just understand, the importance the older generation puts on not repeating their mistakes. The young believe they can skip steps, running to the top of the mountain without a plan for getting down. The old have fallen off that mountain a time or two. We dont want to do it again. We prefer to plan a safe descent. We like working with a safety line. Thats how we survive. Its true that older folks become comfortable with things the way they are. Theyre resistant to change without a really good reason. They lose patience when those younger insist on doing whats already been tried unsuccessfully, especially when someone acts as if theyve invented a new wheel. Please forgive the lack of excitement. Young people are valued for their energy, their ability to learn and innovate. Older people have great value for their experience, abilities and skills. They know most do overs are stupid. Theyve been there and done that.Suzette Porter is Internet services manager for Tampa Bay Newspapers.Bill Kane and his family lived in a Midwest state with restrictive gun laws. One day Bill said to his wife Mitzi, Lets move to Georgia. Theyve got a new firearms law that will make us much safer than we are here. Most people in Georgia are allowed to own a gun and take it almost everywhere. Bill was 40. He had never been shot or held up at gunpoint, or otherwise been threatened by someone carrying a gun. Even so, he heard the crime reports and listened to the stories issued by the Giggies. They were the members of God Is Guns (GIG), a huge, rich and powerful gun lobby. Despite their rapidly growing influence the Giggies were scared. They warned that one day weakkneed liberals would repeal the Second Amendment and forbid ordinary citizens from owning guns. So Bill quit his job. He and Mitzi, with their two children, moved to Georgia. They rented a house and enrolled their kids in a high school. The schools principal welcomed them, saying, I carry a firearm, and so do most of my teachers, as well as the school custodian and the three security guards. To graduate, every senior must complete a sharpshooters program. Any student who refuses is regarded as a subversive, and must wear a red-and-black bulls-eye on his/her clothing each day. The Kanes looked for a suitable church to attend. At first they could find no church of their denomination that allowed the congregation to wear guns during the services. But at last, with the help of GIG, they found a house of worship whose leaders loved guns almost as much as they loved God. Bill went to a state office building to apply for a Georgia drivers license. As he entered the lobby, a greeter stopped him and said, Sir, are you carrying a firearm? Bill said, No. Should I have one? The greeter said, Well, we feel better if we can easily see a pistol on the hip of each patron. This identifies him or her as a God-fearing gun-loving citizen. Without a gun showing, the person could be a terrorist or, even worse, a left-wing, antigun troublemaker. Are you a member of GIG? Bill said, I sure am. I received my membership card just a few days ago. A week after moving into their new home, the Kanes were visited by the local Welcome Wagon. Two smiling ladies gave them flowers, a small cake, and a large box filled with assorted ammunition for use in handguns made by Magnum, Glock, Smith and Wesson, Colt and other major companies. One lady said, We hope these bullets will fit your weapons. You do own a gun or two, dont you? Most of the families in our crowd have at least five. Were all Giggies, and proud of it. One night they attended their first Guns Is God meeting. They listened to a fiery speech by the local GIG chairman, Chick L. Gruber. Chick warned that although the governor and state legislature were under GIGs thumb, the victory was far from complete. For example, he said, many Georgia police groups opposed the new guns-everywhere law. So did the Georgia Municipal Association. Chick said, Georgia still requires every citizen to obtain a license to carry a gun. Thats wrong, my friends! Thats Communism! We are surrounded by enemies of freedom, Gruber continued. They will not stop until all our weapons are taken from us, and we become powerless to resist the predators who will stalk our streets. But the greatest danger is not from the criminal element. A much larger threat are the richies, the filthy oligarchs. When they achieve absolute power, you and I will be unable to rise up and overthrow them. Our guns will be gone, and so will our ability to revolt, as our founding fathers did in 1776. Do we want that? Will we stand for that? Hell, no! shouted the crowd. Gruber went on to outline GIGs nationwide plan to defeat every anti-gun political candidate in future elections. GIG needs your help, your donations and most of all your hatred and mistrust of anyone who opposes total firearms freedom and the God-given Second Amendment. We must squash them like bugs! Are you with me? The cheers and applause were deafening. The Kanes were astounded. On the drive home they said little to each other. But before going to bed they shared a beer at the kitchen table. Bill reached for his wifes hand and said, I thought Id feel safe here in Georgia. But somehow I dont. How about you? Mitzi said, Im scared. Lets go back home. A week later, thats what they did.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The theme of National Nurses Week 2014 is Nurses Leading the Way, and no one puts more passion into the health care profession than VA nurses and nursing staff. The VA is the nations largest single employer of nurses. The VA nurses lead their profession in education and training, clinical responsibility and research. But their passion comes from VAs mission to provide the very best personalized, proactive, patient-driven care to the veterans we serve. The nurses are integral and equal members of our health care team of professionals. No health care professional is closer to the veterans we care for than a VA nurse. Veterans and families rely on them for their compassion and the VA relies on them for setting the highest clinical care standards. That reliance is well placed. The VAs recognition as a leader in health care quality, patient safety and research is due in large part to nurses. Every year, the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System serves more than 100,000 veterans and our nursing staff is involved at virtually every point of care. From admission to discharge, from primary care to complex inpatient procedures and home care our nursing staff is there to deliver the best possible outcomes for our nations heroes. Moreover, about 20 percent of our nurses are veterans and 245 hold advanced certifications in specialized nursing practices like anesthesia, geriatrics, mental health, cardiac and more. For Nurses Week this year, the Bay Pines VAHCS will host various events to recognize our dedicated nursing professionals across the organization. The week culminates with our annual nursing awards program scheduled for Friday, May 9, at the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center. The event is a fitting tribute to all of those who committed to the Florence Nightingale Pledge: With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care. I am deeply proud to be associated with the nearly 1,100 nursing employees who serve veterans across the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System and of all of our nations 3.1 million registered nurses who work tirelessly to keep us well and save lives around the clock every day. Happy nurses week. Teresa E. Kumar Associate director, Patient Care Services, Bay Pines VA Healthcare SystemLight rail: An Expensive Way to GoRe: Light rail, an inexpensive way to go, letter by Bob McEwan, April 24-25 Editor: Sorry, letter writer of last week, but this light rail is not going to take you to the Tampa airport. The light rail is only going from St. Petersburg to Clearwater. Gov. Scott announced Feb. 18, 2014, that a 15year advancement of a I-275 toll connector into Pinellas will be built with no tax increase for citizens. This new gateway will go to the St. Petersburg airport only. And the light rail is the expensive way to go. The sales tax increase the PSTA bus company wants us to vote for in November will raise our sales tax to 8 percent, the highest in the state of Florida. Greenlight Pinellas (their logo) plans to take the millions this sales tax increase will generate and borrow billions in grants, bonds, and debt to build a light rail system. PSTA and our elected officials want to spend your money to please powerful special interests. We do not need a rail. PSTA has lost our trust by the way they have been managing the bus system. They need to improve the system and do a better job of meeting the needs of the l.6 percent of residents that ride the buses.

Her family got its first car when she was about 18 or 20 years old. On May 1, she thought she was just going to a party. She was surprised to look around and see so many people around her age. At 108 years old, Thomson of Oak Manor in Largo still was the oldest person in the room, but she was one of 39 centenarians people age 100 or older at the Suncoast Hospice centenarian birthday party in Clearwater. This is believed to have broken the Guinness Book of World Records previous record of 31 centenarians all in one place at the same time. Additionally, there were 23 people in their late 90s among the approximate 250 people in attendance. Its the whole celebration of life, which is what our organization is about, said Rafael Sciullo, president and CEO of Suncoast Hospice. We have a long-standing history of including people from the community and really celebrating what people have added to the community and also their lives as well. Everyone has a wonderful story, Sciullo said, and it is a wonderful opportunity to share some of those stories and to celebrate. Thomsons story began in Illinois, where she grew up on a farm. One of her favorite memories of her childhood was jumping belly first onto her wooden sled and using her hands to steer her way down the hill. Ann Kelly of WDUV 105.5 FM helped host the ceremony and read brief biographies about many of the centenarians. One man is an Army veteran who can speak seven languages. Another woman, born in 1910, didnt go to her first movie until she was 60 years old. When Kelly reached the biography of Julia Cookie Winters, who will be 101in November, Winters eyes grew wide, her mouth twisted into a giant O, and her hands flew to her cheeks. She had never admitted her age out loud before, she said, and she could hardly believe how old she had gotten. Then she noticed a reporters camera and began making moose antlers with her hands and hammed it up for the photos. Sheri Grunden with Suncoast PACE describes Winters as a spitfire who loves to sing, loves music, people and is a big social butterfly. Winters of Pinellas Park said the party was super duper, and when asked what is the key to a long and happy life, she said its a glass of wine, whisky, and that she never had any kids. The table then erupted in laughter. At a nearby table, another centenarian had a fury visitor. Ivan, Sciullos 6-year-old golden retriever and trained service and therapy dog, happily donned a party hat and visited with the guests. Helen Williams, 101, who lives at the Palms of Largo, enjoyed petting Ivan at the party. Williams was raised in New York and is proud of her years working as a real estate agent. She was married for 60 years and has 38 great-grandchildren. The other ladies at her table asked her how she still has such a lovely and young complexion. Just wash it, Williams said. Phyllis Brewer isnt quite 100 yet, but born in 1916, that was close enough to celebrate. Besides, shes had to be a grown-up since she was a teenager, so maybe that counts for extra. Well, I became a mother when I was 15 because mother died when I was 15 and left me with four children underneath me, Brewer said. The youngest one was 2. They lived in South Cushing, Maine, and though it was hard, she had promised her mother that she would raise her brothers and sisters while their father worked as a carpenter. I thought I wasnt going to be able to do it, but I did, Brewer said. I promised my mother that I would take care of the children, and I did. Leaving school was the hardest part. After Brewer raised her siblings, she got married and had three kids of her own Arnold, Robert and Ruthie. Brewer has learned a lot throughout her life. I think Ive learned that your family means an awful lot to you, Brewer said. More precious than you realize as youre growing up. And I had cancer when I was 40 and I thought I was going to lose my life. And I thought, Whats going to happen to my children? They were old enough to take care of themselves, then, but I still thought they needed me. Sitting next to Brewer was Jane Hammond, 101, and lives in Regal Palms in Largo. She was at the party with her daughter, Audrey Walcheski. Hammond was married for 58 years, and she and her husband loved going on cruises together. She has always loved to dance and even got up out of her chair to dance along to the live music at the party. Hammond was born in Holland and came to the United States at age 7. Her family landed on Ellis Island and then lived in New Jersey until she got married. Walcheski said her father was in the military, so they all lived in many places, including California, West Virginia, and Florida several times before the couple finally retired in Florida. Hammond was a bookkeeper at St. Petersburg Junior College and has always been extremely active and an expert entertainer and cook. She passed down her skills for entertaining and cooking to her daughter, which are some of Walcheskis favorite memories of her mom. She was always just happy, Walcheski said of her mother. Tons of friends. Every time they would go on a cruise or something, they would come home with new friends and would continue to correspond with them and send Christmas cards to them and things like that. She would write out her Christmas cards every year until just a few years ago. Walcheski lives in Feather Sound and greatly enjoys the time she gets to spend with her mother. You know what? Im really enjoying her now, Walcheski said. I take her every Friday to get her hair done. We go to Safety Harbor to a beauty shop that shes gone to for years and years and years so I wouldnt change that for anything in the world. And we usually have the radio on and I find a station that she likes and we sing songs all the way up, and we just have a ball. Shell read the signs to me on the side of the road and then we go out and have lunch. Shes just really a pleasure. Royce Ladd of Lake Seminole Square in Seminole was one of the fewer male centenarians. At 105, he still is quite lively and gregarious. I dont feel like a minority anymore, Ladd said with a laugh, as he looked around at all the other people his age. Born in Iowa, Ladd was a civil engineer and was married to his wife for 77 years until she died last year at age 104. We had a very enjoyable life, he said. His helper, Joyce Otazo, said Ladd and his wife loved to travel and visited every country in the world except for Korea. He joked that the key to such a long and happy marriage was that they never had kids. But also, he said its to have a real good partner who likes the same things. The pair were extremely active and truly in love, Otazo said. When she helped him move to a smaller living space, they found stacks of letters that the couple had written to each other over the years that were incredibly moving. He also kept a journal of all their travels, Otazo said. I mean, Its 7 oclock in the morning and were doing this, Its 10 oclock at night and were doing this. All day. And they both were like that. So hes right. Find somebody who likes the same things that you do. They both loved the same things. When they got older, they still traveled, and he drove the motor home while his wife knitted and sewed. They were also proud that both of them graduated from college. Ladd is amazed by all the inventions and advancements that have occurred during his lifetime, especially in electronics. He said the current electronics are way over his head, though Otazo points out that he uses email and keeps up with people on the computer. Ladd said a key to living a long time is to not smoke or drink and to keep healthy as best one can. Also, look on the bright side, Ladd said. There usually is one. Suncoast Hospice in Clearwater believes they broke the Guinness World Record on May 1 for having the most centenarians in one place at one time. The record had been 31 people age 100 or older together all at once, and hospices final count on May 1 was 39 centenarians. Royce Ladd, 105, of Lake Seminole Square, was present for the event. Ladd was married to his wife for 77 years, and they had great adventures, traveling all over the world. They visited every country except for Korea.Photo by ALEXANDRA LUNDAHL Visit www.TBNweekly.comCLEARWATER The 2014 National Society of Arts and Letters Awards Luncheon held at Ruth Eckerd Hall Heye Room April 26 honored Mark Sforzini with the Community Award for his outstanding leadership and accomplishments.

Pressure ulcers, or bedsores, can be fatal if given the opportunity to develop, leading to infection that can spread to the muscle, bone and blood stream. By implementing wound consults, which are generated automatically from nursing documentation upon admission, the hospital is able to monitor and document patients to ensure that they are moved frequently and that any early signs of an already present pressure ulcer are addressed by the patient care team. We would like to recognize zero hospital-acquired pressure ulcers as a team effort, said Wendy Lincoln, R.N., in a press release. Lincoln is chief nursing officer at Northside Hospital. Our wound care director, Kathy Jordan, works diligently with nursing and physicians to reduce patient risk for developing bedsores. Our achievement shows that Northside is committed to the safety of our patients and utilizes the proper mechanisms for process improvement and communication.Wellness fair set at Edward WhiteST.

The addition of Don Felder to the Soundtrack of Summer tour means that the combined album sales of all three acts, as well as all the bands they were once members of, is well north of 200 million worldwide, said Styx guitarist/singer James JY Young in a press release issued by ABC Public Relations. Certainly by this yardstick, the Soundtrack of Summer has got to easily be in the Top 10 three-act concert tours to ever hit the road. Renegade Juke Box Heroes partying at the Hotel California will be your slammin soundtrack of a rockin hot summer! What more could you ask for after this crazy cold winter we are having? As longtime friends, were happy to join Styx and Don Felder for the ultimate soundtrack of summer, said Foreigner founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones. Our combined songs are some of Americas favorite summer anthems, and were excited to be bringing them to our fans across the country. This tour will have the best vocalists and guitarists on the road today, said Don Felder. The sheer volume of our combined catalogs is massive and should satisfy any rock n roll fan, and rock them until they cant walk out of the place. The Soundtrack of Summer kicks off May 16 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma before making two stops in Texas. Then, its on to the Sunshine State for a performance at Clearwaters Ruth Eckerd Felder will hit the stage at 7 p.m. at every stop. Styx and Foreigner will alternate closing slots. According to the current schedule, Foreigner will close the show at Ruth Eckerd Hall.ForeignerWith 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and rolls most enduring anthems such as Juke Box Hero, Feels Like The First Time, Urgent, Head Games, Say You Will, Dirty White Boy, Long, Long Way From Home, and the worldwide No. 1 hit, I Want To Know What Love Is Foreigner continues to rock the charts more than 30 years into the game. Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, spent more than 20 weeks on Billboards Top 200 Albums chart in 2013. According to the bands biography provided by Paradigm Talent Agency, at Foreigners core is founder and lead guitarist Mick Jones, the visionary maestro whose stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks and multilayered talents continue to escalate Foreigners influence, along with lead vocalist Kelly Hansen, bass guitarist Jeff Pilson and multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel. Founded in 1976, Foreigners debut album produced the hits Feels Like The First Time, Cold As Ice and Long, Long Way From Home. The album Double Vision followed, as did a string of hits like Urgent, Juke Box Hero and Waiting For A Girl Like You. Those songs helped give Foreigners next album, , its impressive run at No. 1 on the Billboard chart. At the zenith of s sound, Foreigners fifth album, Agent Provocateur, gave the world the incredible No. 1 global hit, I Want To Know What Love Is. This musical milestone followed the record-breaking song Waiting For A Girl Like You. A new level of energy commenced in 2002 when Jones decided to take Foreigner to the next level, according to the biography. He was joined by the astonishing Kelly Hansen on vocals, and continues as they lead the group in a re-emergence of astounding music that speaks to long time foreigner fans and younger generations. With renewed energy and direction, Foreigner hit the Billboard charts again with the 2005 release of their live greatest hits album, Extended Versions. Cant Slow Down followed in 2009, and entered the Billboard chart in the Top 30, driven by two Top 20 radio singles, In Pieces and When It Comes To Love. To follow was the release of the bands three-disc set, Feels Like The First Time, which included an acoustic CD with an intimate and unique re-interpretation of many Foreigner classics, studio re-records by the new lineup and a live performance DVD showcasing the groups exceptional live energy. Juke Box Heroes, a new compilation of digitally recorded Foreigner hits, spent more than 20 weeks in the Billboard Top 200 in 2013. StyxSpawned from a Chicago basement in the early 1970s, Styx would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late s and early s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Over the course of their 38-year career, the band has released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top 10 singles. Styx has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. As a sign of their enduring popularity, the band has performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. According to ABC Public Relations, the current lineup of Styx features Tommy Shaw, James JY Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo. Two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Bad Company, two more studio albums and no end in sight, Styx continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.Early on, the music of Styx reflected such then-current progrockers as Emerson, Lake & Palmer and the Moody Blues, as evidenced by such releases as 1972s self-titled debut, 1973s Styx II, 1974s The Serpent Is Rising and 1975s Man of Miracles. While the albums helped the group build a substantial following locally, Styx failed to break through to the mainstream, until a track originally from their second album, Lady started to get substantial airplay in late 1974 on the Chicago radio station WLS-FM. The song was soon issued as a single nationwide, and quickly shot to No. 6 on the singles chart, as Styx II was certified gold. By this time, however, the group had grown disenchanted with their record label, and opted to sign on with A&M for their fifth release overall, 1975s Equinox. On the eve of the tour in support of the album, original guitarist John Curulewski abruptly left the band, and was replaced by Photo by ASH NEWELL/ABC PUBLIC RELATIONSStyx performs as part of the Soundtrack of Summer tour on May 20 at Ruth Eckerd Hall.Tommy Shaw. Shaw proved to be the missing piece of the puzzle for Styx, as most of their subsequent releases throughout the late s earned at least platinum certification, including 1976s Crystal Ball, 1977s The Grand Illusion, 1978s Pieces of Eight and 1979s Cornerstone, and spawned such hit singles and classic rock radio standards as Come Sail Away, Renegade, Blue Collar Man and Fooling Yourself. The band decided that their first release of the s would be a concept album, 1981s Paradise Theater, which was loosely based on the rise and fall of a oncebeautiful theater. Paradise Theater became Styxs biggest hit of their career, selling more than three million copies in a threeyear period. The band became one of the U.S. top rock acts due to such big hit singles as Too Much Time on My Hands. It also marked the first time in history that a band released four consecutive triple-platinum albums. In 1984, Styx released a careerencompassing live album, Caught in the Act. Not long after that, the band went on hiatus, as the majority of its members pursued solo projects throughout the remainder of the decade. A greatest hits compilation led to a reunion tour in 1996. The tour proved to be a success and resulted in the release of Return to Paradise, a live album and video. Don FelderDon Felder is the former lead guitarist of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. According to an artist biography provided by Paradigm Talent Agency, the bands record-setting compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) sold more than 29 million copies in the United States alone and was awarded by the RIAA the top-selling album of the 20th century. Currently Felder and the Eagles have sold more than 83.5 million albums. A member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1998, Felder served as a member of The Eagles for 27 years, putting his mark on numerous Eagles milestones. He originated the music and co-wrote The Eagles biggest hit the iconic smash Hotel California along with fan favorites like Victim of Love and Those Shoes. Felder is celebrated for his See SOUNDTRACK, page 4B

Girls In Black, the albums first single, reached the Top 30 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart while the second single, Wash Away, co-written by Felder and Styxs Tommy Shaw and featuring Shaws signature vocal sound, quickly jumped to No. 4 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart. Felder wrote or co-wrote all the songs and performs guitar and lead vocals on the album, which boasts a long list of iconic guest performers such as David Crosby, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Steve Lukather, David Paich and Steve Porcaro of Toto, Randy Jackson, Styxs Tommy Shaw and others.

Renegade 16. Too Much Time On My Hands 17. Hotel CaliforniaLARGO Boasting seasoned metal veterans with imposing credentials, it would be easy to call The Winery Dogs a supergroup. The power trio is out to prove its much more than a run-of-the-mill supergroup. The Winery Dogs hit the stage Thursday, May 15, 7:30 p.m., at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets are $24.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. The Winery Dogs features Richie Kotzen on vocals and guitar, Billy Sheehan on bass and vocals and Mike Portnoy on drums and vocals. Kotzen made his mark with Poison and Mr. Big; Sheehan has been rocking for decades with Steve Vai, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big and others; and Portnoy was the co-founder of progressive metal superstars Dream Theater. The talented rock band downplays the supergroup label many assigned to them when they formed in 2012. In their view, supergroups tend to be short-lived entities composed of gifted players that jam out for little while and then quickly record with the hopes of catching lightning in a bottle. Moreover, theyre often the sum of their collective parts. Thats not the case with The Winery Dogs, a cohesive, well-rounded classic-sounding trio whose music is influenced by classic rock icons such as Led Zeppelin, Cream and Jimi Hendrix, as well as modern rockers such as Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Lenny Kravitz. The groups self-titled 2013 debut is filled with straightforward rock and roll inspired by some of their favorite bands. The music transcends any of the styles the individual artists are best known for. We all have our own distinct voicings and styles, but we also have a common ground of music we grew up listening to, said Kotzen in a press release provided by Paradise Artists. What makes the band so special is that somehow, in our collaboration, none of us lost our identity. We all sound like who we are yet we make music that is fresh and exciting and sounds like a new band. Theres a natural chemistry that came together; its one of those things thats meant to be. The glam-metal band Poison features prominently in Kotzens rsum: He joined the outfit in 1991 at age 21, performing on and contributing material to the album Native Tongue. He co-wrote Stand and Until You Suffer Some (Fire & Ice), two top 20 singles, and stayed with the band through 1993. In 1999, he joined Mr. Big. I like the fact that everybody comes from a different background, though there are similarities to them, said Sheehan. We have is a real special bond that wouldnt happen if we were all into exactly the same things. We brought disparate elements together and made them into a unified band. Sheehan has been performing professionally since the 1970s when he formed the power trio Talas with Dave Constantino and Paul Varga. Talas opened a string of shows for Van Halen in 1980. Not long after, Sheehan left Talas to join David Lee Roths solo band. Debut albumThe Winery Dogs released their self-titled album in 2013, showcasing 13 tracks that groove and swing without sacrificing any of the grit that makes great hard rock so inspiring. The opening song, Elevate, starts with a bang, as slamming drums and a visceral riff mesh into a rhythm of sheer power. Then the gifted musicians end the stanza in a flurry of precision playing before dropping down to a bass drum thump and sustained guitar feedback over which Kotzen sings, Lost in the dark, I feel like a shadow of myself. Then the band kicks back into overdrive and the song repeats its tension and release until it reaches the euphoric chorus, Elevate me, take me hire/ I dont want to be wasted. The push-pull dynamic illustrates how The Winery Dogs toy with established styles and turn them into something special, complete with Sheehans acrobatic bass fills and Kotzens rapid-fire solos, which help The Winery Dogs blend in a way thats both instantly recognizable and utterly individual. Desire is slinkier and more sensual, starting with a lone staccato guitar, but rapidly morphing into a something more infectious than teenage mono, wah-wah guitars pumping along with throbbing bass rhythms and a sturdy backbeat. Before the song is over, The Winery Dogs have engaged in a full-scale workout of funk-inflected and blues-embellished hard rock, capped with the vocal I dont think that I can let go. When we were writing, wed get together and play and everything was really natural and automatic and fell together in a really cool way, Sheehan said. Some of the jams we did on the record are pretty spontaneous. Wed launch into them and let nature its course. Honestly, the hardest thing was deciding which songs were our favorites. Wed finish something and be totally happy with it. And then wed do the next song and go, No, man, thats our new favorite! It was a rare and beautiful thing. Sometimes birth is hard labor, but these songs just popped out. According to the band, The Winery Dogs is a labor of love written from the heart, revealing unexpected shades of melodic eclecticism and lyrical vulnerability. Kotzens vocals powerful vocals and extraordinary guitar playing is anchored by Sheehans expert bass lines, which root the songs and provide a lock-and-step foundation for Portnoy to play around. The band createsWinery DogsPower trio made up of veteran rockers to perform at Largo Cultural Centerlyrical, signature guitar work on legendary songs like Hotel California, One of These Nights and New Kid In Town. Hotel California was recently voted the No. 1 best 12-string guitar song in the world by Guitar World magazine. After leaving the group in 2001, Felder also became a New York Times bestselling author when his riveting confessional memoir Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles proved a major commercial triumph upon publication in 2008 and went on to become a New York Times best seller. More recently, Felder has worked in both sessions and live performances with numerous music legends spanning the musical spectrum: The Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Bob Seger, Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Kenny Loggins, David Crosby, Gramusic that seesaws between primal simplicity and time-honored virtuosity. Its very exciting for me to be in a solid rock trio, Portnoy said in the press release. Stylistically, the bulk of my career has been spent playing progressive music, so this was an opportunity for me to do something that wasnt prog or metal. After a 25-year stint with the band he co-founded, Portnoy left Dream Theater in 2010. He enjoyed immense success with the prog-metal band, scoring 29 awards from Modern Drummer magazine. He is the second youngest person after Neil Peart of Rush to be inducted into Modern Drummers Hall of Fame. During his tenure with Dream Theater, he also worked on many side projects, including Transatlantic, a prog-rock supergroup featuring former Spocks Beard keyboardist/vocalist Neal Morse, Flower Kings guitarist Roine Stolt and Marillion bassist Pete Trewavas. With The Winery Dogs, Portnoy enjoys the shift in musical style. Its more classic rock and, at the end of the day thats what I grew up with and thats the biggest influence in my life, he said. Im just at home playing on a small four-piece kit doing a simple John Bonham groove as I am playing complex tempos on a giant kit. And thats been a great breath of fresh air for me.Photo courtesy of PARADISE ARTISTSFrom left, Billy Sheehan, Richie Kotzen and Mike Portnoy, performing as The Winery Dogs, visit Largo Cultural Center May 15.
