By SUZETTE PORTERThe U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill June 10 that should help veterans receive timelier healthcare. The Veteran Access to Care Act, co-sponsored by Congressman David Jolly, who represents Pinellas Countys District 13, and Congressman Gus Bilirakis, who represents District 12, allows the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to contract with non-VA facilities to provide care for eligible veterans among other things. This was a simple step that can provide immediate relief for some veterans waiting months for needed care, Jolly said in a June 10 press release. Utilizing the private sector and non-VA facilities to reduce these wait times is not only common sense, but the fastest way to get veterans the care they need. As of Friday afternoon, the bill was still pending in the Senate.Veterans Intake DayJolly visited Pinellas County June 17 for a Veterans Intake Day at his office on the St. Petersburg College campus in Seminole. He wanted to get first-hand information from veterans who use local VA services. Veterans were asked to take a survey, which 183 of the more than 300 who came to intake day completed. About 40 percent said they had already asked to be referred to a non-VA provider, and 48 percent said results of those requests had been poor or very poor, indicating theres a strong reluctance on the part of the VA to send people to a non-VA provider, Jolly said.There is a strong interest on the part of local veterans to go outside the VA system for care. And if the VA cannot provide timely care My Hope ChestNonprofit helps uninsured breast cancer survivors pay for reconstructive surgery By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, Alisa Savoretti has done it all: performed in Las Vegas as a showgirl, worked as a court reporter in Los Angeles, founded an online furniture store. But shes also a breast cancer survivor, which has inspired the most ambitious endeavor of her life: My Hope Chest. The organization assists uninsured women around the country who have lost one or both breasts during their fight with breast cancer to pay for their reconstructive surgery, which the larger breast cancer charities dont fund. Nearly 22,000 women each year lose their breasts to cancer and are unable to pay for reconstruction themselves because theyre uninsured or they cant afford their deductible. This complicated surgery which actually consists of three surgeries over the course of a year to take a woman from flat to finished, Savoretti said costs around $25,000. While insurance companies consider it part of breast cancer treatment and include it in their healthcare plans, the uninsured are out of luck. But its the final stage of treatment, Savoretti said, and necessary. It would be nice if uninsured women could be taken from start to finish. Where is the support for the uninsured mastectomy, some say victim, but I say survivor? She acknowledges that while many charity dollars as possible need to be used for saving lives, its wrong to consider this reconstructive surgery unnecessary. After a mastectomy many women dont feel like themselves anymore. It affects confidence and self-image, she said. It changes how they look at themselves. This is where My Hope Chest comes in. It focuses solely on helping women afford this elusive reconstructive surgery they otherwise couldnt afford on their own. Its the only charity of its kind. For the past 10 years, Savoretti has kept the nonprofit going, even when it seemed to be running on fumes, and said its finally gaining some momentum. My Hope Chest moved out of her Seminole home and into a suite at the Seminole Office Center, 7985 113th St. N., earlier this month. Shes also received national attention, with a mention in Fitness Magazine and O, the Oprah Magazine. Last October, Readers Digest named her one of the nine names to know in the fight against breast cancer. My Hope Chest also has landed two national corporate sponsors.

The space, located in the Seminole Community Library, provides a modern, technologically advanced version of your dads garage, so to speak. The grand opening was held June 3. These creative learning environments, often called makerspaces, are growing in popularity, said Information Services Librarian Chad Mairn, who received a $3,500 Innovation Grant from the St. Petersburg College Foundation to start the lab. For years weve been more consumption oriented, but now the trend is moving toward creating while discovering things yourself, said Mairn. With these technology tools, you can design and build things, learn, and share ideas instead of passively consuming information. The space will provide an area where people with common interests like computers, technology, science or digital arts can socialize and collaborate on ideas and learn new skills. In SPCs lab, which is open to the public, visitors can learn how to program different devices, such as the Raspberry Pi, the Arduino Genuine Mega 2560 Circuit Board and the ProtoSnap LilyPad Development Board. That lab is going to be phenomenal, said Instructional Technologist Nancy Munce, who used the 3-D printer to create a cookie cutter she designed from scratch. Those printers are still wickedly expensive; too expensive to have at home. The potential to learn valued skills is remarkable.Munce saw Mairns enthusiastic Facebook post about the lab and took him up on his offer to get involved. She was looking to prepare cookies for a friend who was graduating from the University of Floridas College of Veterinary Medicine.She figured out how to use Adobe Illustrator to create an outline for the cookie cutter and then used a 3-D CAD (computer-assisted design) program for the rest. I poked around and somehow figured it all out, said Munce. Basically this saved me from having to cut three dozen cookies by hand.

At a time when we are hearing about wait times lasting months, we must eliminate barriers that prevent veterans from getting the care they deserve, he continued. The VA has made great strides in the last several weeks to clear the waitlist by using non-VA medical providers. But long-term reform must include statutory changes to fully put veterans in charge of their health care. Veterans deserve a choice. Plain and simple. Jolly said information gleaned June 17 shows that changes that are more dramatic are needed to ensure veterans have control of their medical provider decisions. Of those surveyed, 49 said they had waited more than 45 days from the time they requested an appointment until they were able to see a primary physician. Thirty-six waited from 31 to 45 days, 43 for 15 to 30 days and 27 less than 14 days. Forty-three reported waiting more than 90 days to get an appointment with a specialist. Thirty-four reported waiting 45 to 90 days, 60 waiting 15 to 45 days and 18 said they had waited less than 14 days. Still, sixty-eight percent of those surveyed said care at the local VA was adequate or better. Jolly said many veterans attended intake day just to compliment the staff and administration at the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center, aka Bay Pines, and the James A. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa. That doesnt surprise me, Jolly said. Weve heard for weeks from a number of veterans who say despite the ongoing scandal, they love the care they receive through the VA and that reflects the commitment of so many of the hardworking VA employees. Jolly also learned that many veterans had recently been contacted by the VA to assist with getting them off the waitlist and into private sector healthcare. Jolly said finding solutions to the VA healthcare scandal should not center on assigning blame. Rather it needs to spark a dialogue of ideas that leads to change a continued dialogue and coordination between our veterans, the VA, and the Congress, he said. Comprehensive reform must address the interest of our veterans first and foremost.

Just last month, they sold 151,000 units, yielding $113,000 for the nonprofit. And Olga Bra is offering to match up to $75,000 donated to the organization through its website www.olgainti mates.com. Savoretti hopes this is just the beginning and that even more money will begin to come in so she can hire the staff needed to properly run My Hope Chest. Ideally, there would be staff in place to recruit more volunteer surgeons. Her goal is to find at least one in each major city, that way the organization can assist more women. Shes also gearing up for two major events this fall. The Butterfly Glow Walk 5K Fun Run will take place the evening of Saturday, Sept. 20, at Pass-A-Grille Beach. Each entrant will receive glow sticks and butterfly wings. The second event is Hope Floats on BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) Day, Wednesday, Oct. 15. Smaller groups and organizations can host their own BRA Day events for My Hope Chest around the country. The event is based around creating and launching Hope Floats Wish Boats on a lake, river or pond. For more information, visit www.myhopechest.com.My Hope Chest held its grand opening and ribbon cutting on June 5. Alisa Savoretti, founder of My Hope Chest, created the nonprofit after her own struggles affording reconstructive surgery after surviving breast cancer. The former Las Vegas showgirl even performed when she had only one breast, mere weeks after chemotherapy treatment ended in March 2003. She performed under the name The Lopsided Showgirl.

Delightfully, dolphins return to the Intracoastal Waterway as the waters warm. Our local waters include resident dolphins that return to their summer haunts. They also include nonresident dolphins of both sexes that we see much less often. Some are nonresident females with newborns, which is why Johns Pass is a vital dolphin nursery ground whose ecological integrity must be maintained. Others are roving bulls in search of mating opportunities. The bulls this year include a suitably gnarly cast of characters: Xiphos, Brick, Nose, Keyhole Plus, Ouch and Fishlips. Ouch and Fishlips are bonded bulls. Unlike the other males, they are not roving. They have found mating opportunities by swimming with local lady dolphin P. When males in the animal kingdom stay with a female like this, they are said to be mate guarding. Ouch and Fishlips are guarding P. This is not the first time. Ouch and Fishlips also guarded her in 2007. One of them probably produced Ps delightful calf PeeWee, born in 2008. Mate guarding bulls do not guard the same. One of the bulls guards the female by staying at her side. The other bull stays peripheral to them. The peripheral bull does not appear to contest the coupling. He shows respect for the possessor. Instead, the peripheral bull takes a different tact. He attempts to draw the females attentions away from her guard by doing all kinds of unusual things when swimming with the couple. These unusual things are displays. Displays are designed to entice the female from the guard to the peripheral male. Thus, displays are typically aimed at the couple. Ouch is Ps guard. Fishlips is the peripheral male. Does Fishlips understand that all bets are off in the game of love? One thing is for sure. Fishlips knows that research boats make handy props. In a circular cove in our study area, we spied Fishlips hunting along the seawalls. Though he was mostly out of sight, we tracked him by the flares of big bubbles he shot into the seas to scare fish into flight. Seeing other dolphins in the middle of the cove, I predicted that these were P, Paisley and Ouch. Fishlips left his seawall and traveled to the sandbar in the middle of the cove. There he submerged and, accosting the sea floor, created small mudplumes. Mudplumes are another way to secure a fish sandwich at sea. We glimpsed a bright flash in the dark waters: He was swimming upside-down the way dolphins do when they are pursuing a fish at close range, his gleaming white belly glinting momentarily. Abruptly, this Goliath of a bull bottlenose began acting strangely. His massive rounded head bobbed out of the mudplume, barely clearing the water surface. Bobbing another four or five times, he seemed to be straining to reach life-giving air. Then he disappeared into the sea. The waters began swaying and cresting as if something thrashed wildly instead of swam smoothly. A massive mudplume arose. Again, Fishlips bobbed, barely clearing the surface, and then sunk decisively. We rippled with alarm on board. Had Fishlips become entangled on something that tethered him underwater and bobbed to try to breathe? Was this larger-than-life mudplume form dragging something across the sea floor in his struggles to reach the surface? Was this the moment to dive in and save a dolphin from drowning? Could we? Should we? Seconds seemed like minutes as, wide-eyed, we were riveted on the mudplume. The seas hid all. A thousand thoughts careened through my head: my morals, the hands-off policy of my federal permit, my ethics, let-nature-take-its-course edict of field research, the madness of watching something die that we could save, the danger of trying, and the danger of dying by trying. Time stopped, but not for the creature besieged below the surface. Fishlips erupted at the surface and whipped his mighty tailstock, slamming the seas into a colossal column of water as he kicked a fish into flight at our boat. As I leapt aside to shield my camera, Fishlips surfaced from his cagey cascade in the normal dolphin position and headed toward his distant schoolmates. As he did, he cast a backward look that I shall never forget. It said so plainly, Did ya catch that?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Irene Olive Cates qualified as a write-in candidate against incumbent Rene Flowers in District 7.Election informationThe voter registration deadline for the primary election is July 28.

The date has not yet been determined. Pinellas County beaches will remain open throughout the project. Public access to the active beach construction areas will be restricted. These areas will extend approximately 700 to 800 feet in length, and ramps over pipes will provide safe access for visitors to the shoreline north and south of the active work areas. The first active area will be at Sunshine Beach, which is the northern tip of Treasure Island. It will be followed by Sunset Beach in Treasure Island and Upham Beach and Pass-A-Grille beach in St. Pete Beach. An estimated total of 555,000 cubic yards of sand will be used for the project and cost of $16.18 million. Beach nourishment helps to preserve Pinellas County beaches, which are important for storm protection, tourism and nesting sea turtles and shorebirds.For more information about beach nourishment in the county, and this project updates, visit www.pinellascounty.org/environment/coastalMngmt/nourishment.htm. Jack and Susan Latvala score side-by-side awardsCLEARWATER State Sen. Jack Latvala and Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala collected awards from the Florida Association of Counties this week for their leadership and unwavering dedication to ensuring that Florida has strong county governance. Sen. Latvala was awarded the Doc Myers Lifetime County Advocate Award, an honor that is reserved for those elected officials who have consistently distinguished themselves as advocates for local government, and who go above and beyond to protect the rights of counties, a press release said. Similarly, Commissioner Latvala received the Marlene Young Presidential Advocacy Award for her steadfast, persistent leadership and extraordinary commitment to preserving the home rule authority of Floridas 67 counties. The awards were given during the 2014 annual conference of the Florida Association of Counties, June 17-20, the associations largest annual event. Throughout his career in public service, Sen. Latvala has worked tirelessly with counties on a wide variety of issues affecting local government, including Medicaid, the environment, and taxation. He was a crucial supporter of counties rights during the 2014 Legislative Session when they fought to bring fairness in the costsharing formula established between the state and each county for juvenile detention services. I am honored to receive the Doc Myers Lifetime County Advocate Award from FAC, and I will continue my commitment to ensuring that my constituents have their voices heard at all levels of government, the senator said. I am also very proud of the great work that Commissioner Susan Latvala has done for Floridas counties, and to be recognized along with her today is a great honor. Visit www.TBNweekly.com

PETERSBURG St. Petersburg College president Bill Law, who completed his fourth year as college president earlier this month, received a contract extension through June 30, 2017 and an exemplary performance review from the SPC Board of Trustees. Board Chair Deveron Gibbons praised Laws leadership, expertise and creativity and his commitment to the colleges mission of promoting student success and enriching local communities through education, career development and self-discovery. Board members reviewed Law on leadership, diversity of initiatives, planning, budgeting and external relations. One of the principal charges given to Dr. Law at the start of his tenure was to refocus our efforts on the core mission of this institution, said Gibbons. Dr. Law has performed this portion of his responsibilities at the highest level of leadership. (SPCs) College Experience project has significantly improved the classroom success of our students across the board. Law created The College Experience in 2012 to ensure students finish what they start and succeed. The five major components of The College Experience include out-of-class support, integrated career and academic advising, new student orientation, My Learning Plan (a roadmap for graduation) and early alert and student coaching system. Since The College Experience launched, SPC students have shown significant academic improvements, but the greatest advances have been among African-American and Hispanic males. For African American males, success rates jumped from 42 percent in spring 2012 to 58 percent this spring. For Hispanic males, the success rate rose from 53 percent to 68 percent. Law holds weekly meetings with college staff to review progress reports and success metrics and communicates these goals throughout the college. In his review, Gibbons also noted that Law has succeeded in the past year in moving forward with the complex development of the Midtown campus, renewing SPCs online education program, formulating a student-focused response to major changes in the state guidelines for developmental education and expanding the colleges commitments to workforce education across all levels of the colleges instructional mission. Our consistent, superior audit reviews, budgeting, and strategic planning, have been able to put into motion, a plan for future success, Gibbons said. President Law continues to be an effective spokesperson for the college in Tallahassee and our college continues to perform at a very high level in the key areas of postsecondary education policy. New principals named for several schoolsLARGO Informational open houses are planned for students interested in enrolling in Pinellas County Schools and St. Petersburg Colleges newest collaborative the Elite Educator Program.

This is your opportunity to Share your Heart! There is vulnerability in the elderly often brought on by feeling less worthy as they once felt when they were still involved in a career, enjoying times with siblings, traveling with a spouse and basically maintaining their independence. Once they experience the loss of a lifetime career and the loss of loved ones, they may also lose their sense of purpose for everyday living. Think of at least one elderly person that you know and how you may help them achieve purpose in life once again. Involve them in your life. How can you encourage them today to maintain relationships and enjoy what they find appealing as an individual? Shut-in seniors are at a higher risk of depression and loneliness due to their inability to get out into the public on their own. Encourage them to attend Senior centers which provide the opportunities for friendships and activities for them to enjoy. Call them on a regular basis and suggest different volunteering opportunities available to them. Several years ago, Comfort Keepers piloted a program called Interactive Caregiving which has proven that active and mentally stimulated seniors enjoy a better quality of life and physical well being. Transforming daily activities into interactive activities helps keep people strong, improve health and outlook on life, and reduce the risks for injury, depression, and symptoms of dementia. Interactive Caregiving is the unique way our Comfort Keepers deliver care to our clients. It centers on four interrelated aspects engagement of the mind, an active body, proper nutrition, and safety. What I observe often is that the elderly need to know that they are still important and needed. Enjoying camaraderie with others does not fade with time. The elderly love to share stories and appreciate others that are truly listening. They have so much wisdom to offer and truly know the value of life. Lets honor the elderly, encourage and support them to continue to enjoy their lives with purpose.

Police beatMinor injuries reported in seven-vehicle crashPINELLAS PARK Failed brakes may be the cause of a seven-vehicle crash that occurred about 2:40 p.m. Saturday, June 21, near the intersection of Park Boulevard and Belcher Road in Pinellas Park. According to Pinellas Park police, Katherine Langston, 30, of Dade City was driving a 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood westbound on Park Boulevard in the median lane just before the initial crash. She told police that as she was approaching Belcher Road, she noticed that the light was red and began to attempt to brake; however, her brakes didnt work. The Cadillac sideswiped a 2005 Ford Escape that was in the center lane. The driver of the Escape, Mary J. Phero, 53, of Seminole was uninjured. The Cadillac then continued westbound and struck a 2014 Jeep Wrangler, which was in the median lane. The impact caused the Jeep to hit a 2011 Volkswagen Touareg, which was in the southbound turn lane for Belcher Road. The driver of the Jeep, Dale Harris, 57 of St Petersburg, was uninjured. The front seat passenger, Ida Harris, 56, was transported to Bayfront Hospital. The driver of the Touareg, Ann C. Garcia, 50, of St Petersburg, and her two daughters, ages 18 and 14, were uninjured. After the Cadillac struck the Jeep, it ran into a 2013 Nissan Rogue, which was in the median lane. The Nissan was knocked into a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 located in the median lane. The driver of the Nissan, Riley Wallace, 29, of Seminole and his mother, Catherine Theriault, 56, of Seminole, a passenger, were uninjured. Wallaces 5-month-old daughter was taken to All Childrens Hospital in a private vehicle. The driver of the Dodge Ram, Minh Vo, 48, of Largo was transported to Northside Hospital. After striking the Nissan, the Cadillac rolled onto the passenger side, against a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan, which was in the center lane. The driver of the Caravan, Cassandra Ventura-Riddick, 40 of St. Petersburg, nor her husband, Lance Riddick 41, or her two sons, ages 8 and 10, were injured. Langston and the owner of the Cadillac, Morgan Williams, 22 of St Petersburg, were transported to Bayfront Hospital. Williams two children, both age 2, were transported to All Childrens Hospital. Pinellas Park police reported Sunday that all the patients transported by ambulance to local hospitals had been released. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

One also was charged with burglary with assault or battery after he entered the second suspects residence without permission and hit him in the face with a closed fist. The incidents occurred between June 12 and June 15 at two private residences in Pinellas County. According to the sheriffs report, detectives were contacted on Monday, June 16, after it was reported that a suspect was observed to be undressed with a 15-year-old victim. Detectives identified the male as Colby Naler Smith, 18, of St. Petersburg. Smith and the victim reportedly had sexual contact June 15. During an interview, the victim told detectives that another suspect had also physically abused her on three different occasions between June 12 and June 14, because he did not want her around Smith. Detectives identified the second suspect as Alex Jeffrey Bokhouen, 20, also of St. Petersburg.

Wheeler joins Coast GuardSeminole High grad serves aboard USS Constitution By LT. J.G. CARL ZEILMAN BOSTON A 2011 Seminole High School graduate from Redington Shores, is part of a handpicked Navy crew serving on the worlds oldest commissioned warship afloat, the USS Constitution. Seaman Matt Karkheck, an aviation technician, serves aboard the 216-year-old Bostonbased ship named by President George Washington to honor the Constitution of the United States of America. Famously known as Old Ironsides, the Constitution is a wooden-hulled three-masted heavy frigate that originally launched in 1797 as one of six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Armament Act of 1794. Karkheck, 21, said he is honored to have been selected to serve on the ship that is rich in history and successfully held off the British Navy in the War of 1812. It is a tremendous honor to serve on the Constitution, in a historical city like Boston, said Karkheck. The Constitution actively defended sea lanes against global threats from 1797 to 1855. Now a featured destination on Bostons Freedom Trail, Constitution and her crew offer community outreach and education about the ships history and the importance of maintaining a strong Navy to hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Seventy-five sailors make up the crew aboard USS Constitution. These sailors routinely interact with the public talking Above, seaman Matt Karkheck, an aviation technician, aboard the USS Constitution.

The Constitution is scheduled to conduct several sailing demonstrations in Boston Harbor this summer prior to entering a three-year dry dock maintenance period. The ships first sailing commemorated both the Battle of Midway and the 70th anniversary of D-Day on June 6. The popular Independence Day sailing, open to the public via lottery, will occur on July 4. Serving in the Navy has changed my life for the better, said Karkheck. I met my girlfriend and have acquired skills that will last me an entire lifetime. And, to know that I am part of 1 percent of the Navy, who has the opportunity to serve on the Constitution, is a humbling feeling.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, June 26, 2014Everybody seems to be taking aim at VA facilities these days. Even Gov. Rick Scott climbed aboard the bandwagon to harvest headlines at the expense of VA healthcare. With 1.5 million veterans that call Florida home, were committed to being the most veteran-friendly state in the nation and reports of deaths, neglect, poor conditions and a secret waiting list in federal VA hospitals in Florida are unacceptable, Scott was quoted as saying. The VA operates six medical facilities in Florida, including the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center, until recently known as Bay Pines, and the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa. Our politicians need to talk with and learn from actual veterans who benefit from places like Bay Pines. And Im one of them. I qualify for VA medical benefits thanks to a U.S. Air Force stint. Bay Pines staff has provided treatment for high blood pressure, diabetes and even patched me up after a nasty fall from the attic of my home to the concrete garage floor. Never have I received more professional medical care anywhere else. VA services, in my humble opinion, far surpass any of that offered by civilian doctors and medical facilities. Just how good are VA facilities? Ask Robert Royce, a World War II Army-Air Corps veteran, who clearly recollects his participation in the Normandy invasion and the Battle of the Bulge. He has absolutely nothing unpleasant to say about VA health care, even after 60 years of participating in the system. You can read his entire story by visiting www.va.gov/health/NewsFeatures/2014/May /The-70th-Anniversary-of-the-D-Day-Invasion .asp Or visit Module B at Bay Pines any hour of the working day where you can meet genuine heroes. They are veterans of all wars (they do call the Korean police action a war now) and other lesser conflicts. Its a place where you can meet a 20-something, slightly-built female veteran with light brown hair and a ready smile ... who lost a leg in Iraq. Its a place where ex-soldiers of the Vietnam era still speak of distant locations like Dung Ha, Plei Me, Da Nang, Cam Ranh Bay www.vietnamwar.net/CamRanhBay.htm and the Ho Chi Minh Trail. More than 40 years after we unceremoniously fled Saigon, these unsung heroes continue to endure nightmares from the tropical jungles of Vietnam, Cambodia and a few other places we werent supposed to be, but very much were. Module B is where men and women in their 70s and 80s and even 90s reawaken their encounters against the Nazis and Japanese during World War II. Many still experience pain from physical injuries, and battle fatigue that today is called CSR, or Combat Stress Reaction, and PSD, or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Visit en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posttraumatic_ stress_disorder, medical terms for chronic psychological trauma. Bay Pines is a place where old soldiers whose physical and emotional wounds never die and their much younger colleagues who fought in more recent battles have much in common. They represent generations of men and women who put their lives on the line for their country. Though eons apart on other values, they carry their heads high and would step up to the plate again if an enemy nation threatened America. I once eavesdropped on a conversation between an elderly World War II Army veteran and a 20ish former Marine who suffered appalling mutilations in Afghanistan. I was with the 101st Airborne, the aged wheelchair-bound ex-GI explained. We fought in some of the most god-awful places you can imagine. Winter was so cold in Europe that socks froze to your feet. The Marine whose legs nearly were severed by an IED ... Improvised Explosive Device ... countered with his own war stories. The IEDs are the weapons of choice for insurgents in Iraq, Afghanistan and even Syria. The home-made explosives are responsible for the majority of military casualties. Since the U.S. military left Iraq a few years ago violence there has reached levels not seen since the peak of that war. So, what can our politicians do to really help our valiant veterans? Plenty. For starters, lets get passed federal legislation to expand benefits for veterans and, more significantly, provide the VA with more money to eliminate existing case backlogs. A recent proposition imploded following a bitter bi-partisan battle between Democrats and Republicans who blamed each other for their shameful display of political idiocy. Perhaps the most significant contribution our government leaders can make is simply to keep America out of wars. President Barack Obama wants to redeploy American troops to Iraq to quell an al-Qaida inspired insurgency in major cities. Our veterans deserve better than being at the blunt end of political shenanigans. Unlike the Charlie Sheens, Lindsay Lohans and Kim Kardashians of this world who have become heroes to todays young people, our military veterans are the real defenders of a nation and its people. They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, the lack of which is unprecedented and difficult to comprehend.Thomas Michalski is a retired Tampa Bay Newspapers editor. He can be reached at thomasamski@yahoo.com.A wise woman named Jill once said, Persons who take offense do much more harm than those who give offense. To which we can all say Attagirl, Jill. Youre absolutely right. Just think about it. Count the number of persons you know who are real stinkers. We all have a few offense-givers in mind, but they are vastly out-numbered by those tender souls who take offense because of real or imagined slights, insults, and other actions. Each day, thousands (perhaps millions) of persons take offense at God. Their common cry: Why me, Lord? When something large or small goes wrong in their lives, these pitiful creatures seem incapable of realizing that God did not deliberately choose them as an objective of His or Her wrath. Havent these folks ever heard of fate, luck and happenstance? You will note that persons who blame God for their troubles seldom credit God for the good fortune that comes their way. Its been quite awhile since Ive heard of someone shouting Why me, Lord? after winning the lottery or being the sole survivor of a traffic accident. Many of todays TV programs could not exist without people who have taken offense. Judge Judy and the other courtroom shows are flooded with persons who have been offended by someones dog, or their driving, infidelity, failure to pay, lying and other evil acts. The same goes for Dr. Phil and Jerry Springer. For their guests, they must rely on offended persons looking for justice, i.e., revenge. Taking offense is getting more dangerous with each passing day. Thats because of our national gun culture. Before long, if we believe that the checkout clerk at the grocery store has made an 8-cent error in our bill, well be well-advised not to take offense and question the clerk. Chances are shell have a .38 caliber pistol tucked inside her blouse, and would love to wave it at us. (The pistol, not her blouse.) Back in Toledo in 1962 I was given a frightening lesson in the risk of taking offense and then showing it. I was driving to work when a big old Cadillac pulled out of a side street and cut me off. I took immediate offense and gave a blast on my horn. I caught up with the Caddy at the next red light. I made the mistake of pulling alongside him. I was suddenly face to face with the toughest, meanest-looking dude in the city. He snarled at me, Why dont you go BLEEP yourself?!! He seemed ready to exit his car and climb into mine. From that day forward I have refrained from taking offense at other motorists. Or at least exhibiting it. Taking offense is usually a manifestation of ego. How dare you do or say such a thing to me? Dont you know how important or special I am? The answer to that question is usually No. How special are you? Life becomes simpler and more enjoyable when we put our egos on the back shelf, where they wont be easily hurt. For offenses that simply cant be forgotten or ignored, its wise to make no response at the time the insult or grievance is rendered. Just be patient. This was beautifully exhibited in the film Godfather I by Robert Duvall, legal counselor to Don Corleone. Duvall was sent to Hollywood to ask a bigtime producer to grant Corleone a personal favor. The producer flew into a rage. He stood above Duvall and cursed him, Corleone, the Mob and Italians in general. Instead of reacting to the insults, Duvall quietly finished his meal, thanked the producer, and left for the airport. Several days later, the producer awoke to find the head of his favorite prized race horse lying in his bed. This was a classic illustration of the adage, Revenge is a dish that is best served cold. Or another useful piece of advice, Dont get mad. Get even. On a less vindictive note, let me refer you to a best-selling author whose writings my son Jim recently introduced me to. He is Don Miguel Luis, a 62-year-old Mexican known for his life-affirming teachings. One of his books is called The Four Agreements, a group of principles for daily life. One of them goes like this: Dont take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you wont be the victim of needless suffering. I like that. It sounds much like Stoicism. Refusing to take offense is not easy, and never will be. But when achieved, the payoffs are enormous.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

There are numerous reasons against the sale water independence, water self-reliance, rate stability, income from the property, and the fact that it is an irreplaceable asset. On the other hand, I could only find one reason to sell: short-term and shortsighted financial gain. Our elected officials have a responsibility to manage the county budget without selling a precious water resource or otherwise raiding the balance sheet. Because water supply is a critical long-term issue, I sent out an email to tens of thousands of Pinellas County voters (http://ymlp.com/z09GXJ). The response to this e-mail was strong, and the latest count from the board records clerk shows 109 people contacting the Board of County Commissioners to express opposition to the sale of the land, and only two expressing support for the sale of the land. Since my e-mail, all four commissioners in favor of the sale Latvala, Long, Justice and Welch have sent out e-mails to constituents defending their position. Ms. Long claimed that she is working hard with [county] staff to determine what future value the land holds for our citizens. But Ms. Long misses the point: this is not about the value of the land, it is about water self-reliance and independence. Mr. Justice began one e-mail by declaring, There is no danger of losing access to our water resources now or in the future. Three paragraphs later in that same e-mail, Mr. Justice said he will only support the sale of this land if our water resources remain secure. It is clear from Mr. Justices first statement that he has already made up his mind that our water resources are secure, which renders his second and conditional statement meaningless. Yesterday, Ms. Latvala tried to make this controversy about water safety in an e-mail to constituents, an e-mail which was published today in the St. Petersburg Tribune. Water safety is not the issue. The issue is and continues to be water independence and self-reliance, particularly drinking water. Because of this continuing barrage of misinformation and attempts at distraction by certain commissioners, this morning I sent out an update to concerned citizens and elected officials. Why is this sale being rushed through in the waning days of Ms. Latvalas time on the commission? Voters should also ask themselves, who is Ms. Latvala representing in this matter? The citizens of Pinellas County? Or is she representing Tampa Bay Water, a special district of the state of Florida which she is the chairwoman of. The people dont want government for special districts, or for special interests. The people are tired of that because they suffer as a result. Lets get back to government for the people. Tom Rask SeminoleWatch your step on the beachesRe: Retire and do what? Tom Germonds column, June 19Editor: One of my biggest pet peeves, when walking the beaches in the same areas you frequent, are the holes in the beach sand. Instead of looking at the beautiful aqua water, instead of looking at the cloudless sky, you have to be watching where you walk so as not to fall into one of those holes, and some of them are huge. I personally think there should be signs posted that say, Have an awesome time at the beach, play, sunbathe, but when you leave, please fill the holes in made by you or your children. Recently, while walking the beach in North Redington, I came across a lady with two young girls, probably 9-10 years old, digging a nice big hole. The lady told them, when they finish, to fill the hole in so this lady (me) or anyone else wont fall in it while walking by. I stopped and thanked her, telling the young girls if I fall in one of those holes and break a leg/arm/hip, I might not be able to ever walk the beach again. PS: I retired and did a Blue Danube River cruise, it was awesome and it was expensive, and yes, we should explore Florida and surrounding states. Thanks for a nice article, and when and if you retire, enjoy every minute of it. I am. Jeanne Richard SeminoleBelleair Bluffs spends too much moneyEditor: The Belleair Bluffs Commission is contemplating 10 percent tax on our utilities. They are so anxious to levy it they are considering reversing a longstanding city ordinance requiring a vote of the people before enacting a tax of this type. The city attorney has said that they can reverse the ordinance based on a Florida Law that has been on the books since 1972. Our ordinance was enacted in 1992 and hasnt been a problem until now. The commission claims to be good stewards of the citys money. They say our shortfalls are a result of the economy, or pension settlements beyond their control. The pension settlement was within their control. It could have been settled for about $1 million less. The economy called for hard choices on spending. Property values had dropped and the citys revenues were down. They elected to take money out of our reserves to maintain the level of service. Good stewardship should include cost control, not just raising taxes. Spending in Belleair Bluffs is high when compared to unincorporated county and other municipalities. I use unincorporated, not to suggest that Belleair Bluffs become unincorporated, but to establish a base of services. It is up to each person to decide whether the additional services being provided are worth their additional cost. Belleair Bluffs can easily be a financially viable city. The problem is the city spends too much. They are trying to be a large City, to justify larger expenses. The City has to start looking at more efficient alternatives. Being small has benefits, we just dont take advantage of them. I would much prefer hearing we are providing the same or better services for less. Belleair Bluffs taxes seem high to me, considering what we are getting. Even more so by adding the additional tax. In my opinion, increasing taxes is the last thing they should do. Before that, we need a citizens task force to review the operating budget with a fresh look at how we are spending our money. The commissioners dont seem to want to do it. On the contrary, they have said the city is in good financial condition. They just need more money. George Lawton Belleair Bluffs Thomas Michalski The rewards of not taking offense

Cleared Youth sailing program holds graduation By BRIAN GOFFINDIAN ROCKS BEACH 35 young people from all over Pinellas County graduated from the Youth Sailing program held at the Calvary Episcopal Church. The group were from ages 6 to 12 and were part of a program that is ongoing, established and led by Father Bob Wagenseil, the former pastor of the church. The graduation took place June 20 and began with a sailing demonstration for the parents and friends who gathered for the event. Then it was award time. Im particularly pleased to recognize and honor the junior leaders of this group, said Wagenseil. They helped the other young people to learn about the team concept. It also helps them hone their leadership skills. Wagenseil also paid tribute to the various adult volunteers who did everything from hands-on sailing help to driving and delivering whatever the participants needed. Ive often been asked what it takes or what skills one needs to be a volunteer in this program, he said. The fact is all you really need is to like children. You must be able to help them in whatever way they need it. You must be there for them. Proudly watching the ceremonies was Kristie Baxter of Largo. Her two sons, Drew, 11, and Lance, 8, were participants in the program and she said it couldnt have come soon enough. I have wanted to enroll them in the program for two years, she said. We couldnt get in because it was always so crowded. I thought the program was great and it was very well run. Baxter said her boys were so enthusiastic they brought their work home with them. There was rope all over the house, she said. They would bring home their books and study how to tie the various knots that were required and they practiced over and over again. She said it is likely her children will have a life-long interest in sailing and because her husband is also interested in sailing they are looking for a family program that they can all be involved in. The oldest participant in the group was Nick Cavallaro, 12, of Belleair Bluffs. He joined the program this year with his sister Sophia, 10, and they were both recognized by Wagenseil for their help during the program. I got to help out a lot because I could do some things the younger kids couldnt do, said Cavallaro. I cant wait to get back at it. Im going to try to get into the after-school program so I can be sailing all year round. I have always wanted to sail so I hope this leads to somewhere good. His sister was just as enthusiastic. It was awesome, she said. I dont know if I would ever make sailing a career but Id sure like to keep at it. During the ceremony Wagenseil couldnt say enough about his two protgs. Josh Leibe, 17, of Seminole has been in the program since he was 7 years old. Now he is an assistant director of the group and is heading off to college in the fall. Hes applied to both the Coast Guard and Naval academies. D.J. Tassone, 14, of Clearwater will step into Leibes shoes when he leaves. Wagenseil said he will be the next assistant director of the group. Just before lunch, as he does at every graduation, Wagenseil asks the young sailors, Who are you? Their response is music to his ears. A response he never tires of hearing. Were intrepid sailors, sir! Then, with the formal ceremonies out of the way, it was lunchtime, and nothing helps work up a good appetite than some time on the water. The speed at which the young sailors hit the food line was testament to that. As people left after the event, parent after parent came by to hug and thank Wagenseil for his efforts. It made him feel special. I feel great, I couldnt feel better, he said. Anytime you can impact a life for the better then it makes life worth living. I feel humbled and blessed. This program helps bring people and families together; it has all been worth it.Sailing camp sessionsSummer youth sailing camps are underway at the Clearwater Yacht Club. Session 2 will begin July 14 and continue through graduation July 25. Morning class runs from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday and afternoon class runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Session 3 will run from July 28 through Aug. 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Yacht Club members are invited to cheer on the young sailors and welcome parents and family members not only at graduation but at anytime during the program.

Here and There Here and ThereFoster parents neededEckerd Community Alternatives is seeking residents willing to take in foster children to meet a growing need for homes. There are more than 1,000 children in licensed foster care in Pinellas and Pasco counties, but only 300 foster homes to care for them. These children have been abused, neglected or abandoned.

Following is a partial list of exhibitors scheduled to participate in this years craft festival: Steve and Judy Archbold of Ossian, Indiana Wood Gissell and William Barbour of Sebring Jewelry Mickey D. and Mike Bradham of Homosassa Ceramics Randy Brooks of Fort White Sculpture Kaysea and Matthew Bruce of Gainesville Pet accessories Janet Campagna of South Orleans, Massachusetts Clothing Walter Catts of Palmetto Furniture Melanie Cech of Spring Hill Glass Dennis Collins of Naples Jewelry Lucie Davis of Oakland Park Fiber Jessica Elwood of Bradenton Painting Carol Generoso of Osprey Jewelry Randy Giamporcaro of Tampa Jewelry Segundo (Luis) Gomez of Miami Jewelry Annette and Gerry Kapfer of St. Pete Beach Jewelry Sindi Karman of Melbourne Home goods Peter Lakiotis of Clearwater Pet accessories Cynthia Linden of Gulfport Mixed media Lorrie Mason of Tampa Jewelry Andres Medina of St. Petersburg Fiber Malinda Ratliff of West Palm Beach Home goods John Roessler of Brooksville Jewelry Rasa Saldaitis of Gulfport Painting Robin Short of Gulfport Fiber Denise Smith of Weirsdale Jewelry Trae Stokes of Pinellas Park Food Lora and Bob Thomas of Sarasota Pottery Miriam Valido of Lutz Miscellaneous Marina Vega of Kissimmee Jewelry Joe Weinstein of Clearwater Stone Richard Wise of Lady Lake Photography Barrie Wolfson of Seminole Home goods According to American Craft Endeavors, the jury process is ongoing and this list of exhibitors has not been finalized. Annette and Gerry Kapfer of St. Pete Beach have become regular exhibitors at American Craft Endeavors shows. According to her website, Annette spent most of her childhood and early teenage years just outside of Oslo, Norway, where she fell in love with nature and the ever changing oceans. Long summers days on the water was spent digging by the shore and exploring sea life, Annette said in her artist biography. After college and marriage, my husband and I decided city life was no longer on top of our list. I missed the sounds and smell of salt water and could not really get used to New York City. We packed up and left New York for Florida and St. Pete Beach. Already a long time collector of glass objects, it was a natural transition for Annette to create her own aquariums in her studio using dichroic glass. The magical properties of this glass with its bright colors and intense reflective qualities are the perfect palette for capturing the spirit of the restless ocean and its communities of colorful sea creatures, she said. My kiln-fused dichroic glass is creatively patchworked, almost quilted, creating 3D views of natures art. Each piece is signed, individually handmade and completely unique. Using only the highest quality art glass, Annette creates each piece using a technique similar to that of a mosaic artist. Each piece is fired and carefully annealed to eliminate stress in the glass and to ensure strength and durability so your customers can consider them heirloom quality, she explained. While my technique is time consuming, the results are appreciated as stunning earrings and pendants are admired by jewelry collectors and nature lovers alike. Annette resides in St. Pete Beach with her husband Gerry, their daughter Karianne and their dachshund Bubba. Another Pinellas crafter participating in this years festival is Robin Short of Gulfport. Short has been quilting and sewing for most of her life and has been inspired by her mother, Ellen Plankey, who is a wellknown award winning artist. Short loves putting together great fabrics, colors and high quality products to create usable, and unique items for her customers. Short has been exhibiting her work with American Craft Endeavors for more than five years. Artist Rasa Saldaitis of Pinellas Park was born in 1965 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Since the seventh grade, art was one of my specialties and I have loved art ever since, Saldaitis said in a biography that appears on her website. By the eighth grade, I was attending art school and graduated top of my class. She went on to attend the V. Muchina Academy of Applied Arts University in St. Petersburg, Russia, studying realistic drawing and painting. From 1984 to 1989, she was being trained to be an instructor at Siauliai Pedagogical University in Siauliai, Lithuania. During that time, I competed in many art competitions and student art shows, Saldaitis said. With my high grades I was very successful in my shows and competitions. I received my masters degree from Siauliai Pedagogical University in 1989. She and her husband began exhibiting and selling their artwork in eastern and western Europe, Because of his lifelong outdoor background, Wise eventually gravitated to the world of nature photography. His photographs have been published in magazines, calendars, and have earned high honors in regional photography competitions. American Craft Endeavors produces some of the nations most exciting high-end juried craft shows in many of Floridas vibrant downtown areas and popular tourist destinations. The groups founders personally select unique, culture rich cities for their show locations providing a complete outdoor experience unmatched by other festivals. All crafters are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants in order to ensure a superior event featuring diverse art media and the highest quality of original handmade crafts.

Kapfer will participate in the second annual Madeira Beach Craft Festival July 5-6.Ringside to host fundraiser for RuckmanIt was during that year that serious health issues arose in the form of cancer and numerous related difficulties which he has been aggressively battling ever since. ST. PETERSBURG Fighting for Rocky Ruckman at Ringside a fundraiser for longtime Tampa Bay area musician Rocky Ruckman is set for Sunday, June 29, 2 p.m. to 2 a.m., at Ringside Caf, 16 Second St. N. The show will include a jam with Branson Welch at midnight as well as performances by Donni Bennett Band, Greg Billings Band, Hal Hammer Jr. and the Cross Creek Blues Band, Lee Pons, Maxwells Silver Hammer, Red X Band, Sarasota Slim, Shawn Brown, Stone Soul, Stormbringer, TC Carr & Bolts of Blue and Woody & The Woodtones. There will be a donation cover, which is not required for entry. Attendees will have an opportunity to bid on unique music memorabilia in a silent auction. There also will be raffle prizes with winners drawn hourly. For information, call 8948465. Ruckman is fighting cancer and numerous health complications. This benefit will help the musician with healthcare bills and living expenses. Originally hailing from the tough steel town of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, where his first efforts as a vocalist and guitarist were well received, it was after arriving in Florida that Rocky Ruckman really became a heavy hitter on the Tampa Bay music scene. Consistently fronting a cutting-edge contemporary sound-driven by his spirited, powerful voice and aggressive, punchy guitar work, he soon earned the respect of fans, players and critics alike. Attacking the stage with a vengeance, Ruckman dynamically fronted several of the most talked about and successful club and concert rock bands in the area. Ruckman was associated with bands such as Monarch (1980-1982), Full Steam Eddy (1982-1983), Blanco (19831987), Misspent Youth (19871988) and Rocky Ruckman and the Beat Heathens (1988-1997). It was with that final crew that Ruckman released a powerful CD of originals songs entitled Crazy World Out There. After a hiatus from decades of performing five or more dates weekly, he assembled Strange Puppet Release in 2009 and occasionally lent his latent but passionate blues/jazz skills to Blind Willie & Blue Situation in charity events through 2013. eventually opening their own art studio in 1991 becoming one of the first private business owners to establish a business after the Soviet Union collapsed. In 1994, the couple and their two children moved to the United States, first settling in Chicago, Illinois and later relocating to Pinellas. We continued to create and sell our art work in galleries as well as art festivals, Saldaitis said. My oil and acrylic paintings represent my love for color and the world around me. I feel that every artist dips his brush in his soul and paints his own nature into his paintings. Richard D. Wise is a nature photographer based in Lady Lake. Wise has been in the photographic business for 40 years, serving as a Navy photographer in Vietnam and later as an aerial photographer in the Pacific and in Washington, D.C. Wise photographed former President Nixons inauguration and other political events. He also worked as a photographic technician for NASA in Greenbelt, Maryland.

FRI. 11am 7pm 011614 Fourth of JulyPinellas County celebrates Independence Day with fireworks, parades By LEE CLARK ZUMPEEven before the sun goes down and fireworks light up the night skies over Pinellas County marking Independence Day 2013, festivities will be underway. The Fourth of July commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, the document in which American colonies effectively declared independence from Great Britain. According to www.census.gov, On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress, setting the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation. The website goes on to list a number of interesting facts, such as: The estimated number of people living in the newly independent nation in 1776 was 2.5 million. The nations estimated population on this July 4 will be 316.2 million. Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston comprised the Committee of Five that drafted the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson, regarded as the strongest and most eloquent writer, wrote most of the document. John Hancock, President of the Second Continental Congress, was the first signer of the Declaration of Independence. Two future presidents signed: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Both men died on the 50th anniversary of signing, on July 4, 1826. In 2012, the dollar value of U.S. imports of American flags was $3.8 million. The vast majority of this amount ($3.6 million) was for U.S. flags made in China. The value of fireworks imported from China in 2012 totaled $218.2 million. As of March 1, 2013, there were 65.9 million hogs and pigs in the United States. Chances are that the pork hot dogs and sausages consumed on the Fourth of July originated in Iowa: The Hawkeye State was home to 20.3 million hogs and pigs. North Carolina boasted 8.9 million and Minnesota had 7.8 million. As always, this most American of holidays will be marked by parades, fireworks and backyard barbecues across the country. Locally, to celebrate the event, displays of fireworks, parades, concerts and other events are planned.
