Funds designated for Waterfront ParkCouncil expends $250,000 in CIP, reserve funds for the projects first phase By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE At its June 24 meeting, the City Council voted unanimously to expend $250,000 in Capital Improvement Project and undesignated reserve funds for the grading, drainage and general improvement of the site that will become Waterfront Park. This includes $150,000 in CIP funds and $100,000 in reserve funds. This is the first phase in the project, which will eventually include a kayak and canoe launch. Located at 10400 Park Blvd., the site is an empty, 8acre lot next to Home Depot. The city received $200,000 in state funding specifically for constructing water access and a launch for kayaks and canoes, which will be the parks primary use. Other possible elements of the park are being considered and there is no master plan for the site yet. The citys Public Works Departments recently solicited bids for the grading and drainage work required on the western portion of the waterfront property. MTM Contractors Inc. offered the lowest bid for grading and site improvement services $230,391 and was awarded the project. The site will also be built up so that it blends better with the nearby Home Depot property, said City Manager Frank Edmunds. In return for the stores permission to do this, the city will assist them in removing several Australian pines from the stores property. This long-term project will be completed over five years in several phases. Each portion of the project will be paid for separately, Edmunds said. The next step is to create a master plan for the Waterfront Park. Once we pursue a master plan we can pursue grants, Edmunds said.

Call Today For All Your Dental Needs Flag wavingPark Boulevard Bridge closure targeted for September By BOB McCLUREST. PETE BEACH County officials told members of the Barrier Islands Government Council June 25 they would do their best to begin repairs to the Park Boulevard Bridge in early September. The project, which has been proposed since last fall, would close the bridge for 30 days. The entire project would take 120 days. A contract for $834,685 was awarded June 24 to Seacoast Inc. of Oldsmar. Initially, Richard Coates, director of transportation and stormwater for Pinellas County Department of Environment and Infrastructure, said County Commissioner John Morroni suggested a time between November and December but beach leaders didnt agree. Traditionally, September is our most quiet month, said Indian Shores Mayor Jim Lawrence. Is it possible for construction to start by then? I agree with Mayor Lawrence, said Redington Shores Mayor Bert Adams. If we could get it started at the first of September that would be the best. Project Manager Tom Menke said it is feasible for a September start but everything would have to fall into place perfectly. All of the pieces have to fit together and some of it is out of our hands as far as the contractor, who now has to produce bonds and insurance to the county, he said. That sometimes takes time. Menke said he would begin immediately to set the September date in motion. Well definitely leave this meeting and go talk to our purchasing dept and see what we can do to accelerate the process, he said. Hopefully well be able to achieve that. In the event of a hurricane evacuation, the bridge would reopen and it would be used to help residents get safely to higher ground. Other emergency management plans call for a Sunstar ambulance to be stationed on the beach during the closure to better handle paramedic emergencies. According to county officials, the project is necessary because the bridge machinery is undersized, which has resulted in past closings. The work will consist of installation of primary reducers and brakes, trunnion hub reinforcement, buffer repair, live load shoe and nose lock shimming, bridge balancing and maintenance painting. During the 30-day closure, motorists can use alternative routes to the beaches via the Walsingham Road and Tom Stuart Causeway bridges in Indian Rocks Beach and Madeira Beach. The Park Boulevard Bridge was built in 1979, connecting Park Boulevard with the barrier islands. Photo by BOB McCLURECounty officials are targeting a September closing of the Park Boulevard Bridge to make needed repairs. The closing would last 30 days. Gas prices highest since 2008, AAA saysMillions expected to travel for Fourth of July weekend By SUZETTE PORTERViolence in Iraq can be blamed on the rising cost at the fuel pumps. Americans will likely pay the highest price per gallon this Independence Day since 2008. But thats not stopping travelers. AAA Travel projects that 41 million Americans an increase of 1.9 percent over last year will take a trip at least 50 miles from home during the Independence Day holiday travel period, July 26. About 1.8 million will be Floridians. With school out for summer, the Fourth of July holiday is typically the busiest summer travel holiday, Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group, said in a press release. About five million more Americans travel for this holiday compared to Memorial or Labor Day weekends. Traditionally, the majority of those celebrating our nations independence take a road trip. In fact, more than eight in 10 travelers, about 34.8 million, will travel by automobile, the most since 2007. Consumers are still mindful of their personal finances, Jenkins said. Auto travel is the best option for controlling expenses. It allows travelers the most flexibility in trip length and the option of making last minute changes. Gas prices are on the rise. AAA says that in recent years, gas prices have gone down prior to Independence Day, but this year Millions of Americans are expected to travel over the Independence Day weekend. Parking free July 4 at 3 Pinellas County parks By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Parking will be free at three Pinellas County parks on Fourth of July. Commissioners unanimously approved waiving the fees during a June 24 meeting. Free parking will be offered at Fort De Soto, Sand Key and Fred Howard parks. Commissioner Norm Roche made the motion for free parking, which was quickly seconded by Commissioner Janet Long. Roche wanted the free parking extended only to veterans. Since it isnt possible to segregate one segment of the population due to the way parking fees are collected he suggested that Independence Day parking be free for all. Long agreed free parking was a good way to honor veterans and suggested the measure be extended to include Memorial Day as well. I dont want to play Scrooge, and I understand the concept, but I would be more comfortable if this was an agenda item, Commissioner Ken Welch said. He asked about the cost. Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard said Fourth of July would be a high-attendance day with parking fee collections coming in at $80,000 to $100,000 at Fort De Soto alone. No decision was made about parking fees on Memorial Day. Parking fees at the countys other beach access parks, including Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores/Tiki Gardens, Madeira Beach, Redington Shores and St. Pete Beach, will still be in effect.COUNTYWater restrictions continuePinellas County reminds residents that restrictions continue on the use of reclaimed water.

This summer, my girls, age 8 and 9, decided they wanted to participate in the recreation centers swim team. Actually, my older daughter asked to do it, so my husband and I decided our younger daughter would do it too. The swimmers on the team are boys and girls ranging in age from about 5 to 15 years old. The two coaches are swimmers from the local high school. So far it has been a wonderful experience. We werent sure what we were getting into, but after several weeks of practice and a few fun competitions, our kids are hooked and so are we. The swim team lasts all summer long and is a non-competitive, which means the kids dont have to compete if they dont want to and the kids arent timed on their swim strokes. If the swimmers do want to compete, there is a fun type of competition on the weekends that is fast-paced, and everyone gets a ribbon. Each weekend, one of the recreation centers in the county holds a swim meet. The kids compete with other swimmers from the different recreation centers. The competition includes races from the four swim strokes: free-style, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. The coaches line up six kids and say, go, and the kids do one lap. As soon as the child finishes the race and gets out of the pool, they receive a ribbon for whatever place they came in. Its quick and so far the meets have lasted just a few hours. Each week, the kids have improved in their strokes and their self-esteem has improved. The first meet my kids did, they didnt want to do all the strokes because they were just learning them. By the second week, they decided they would give it a try and compete doing all the strokes, even the ones they didnt think they were as good at. The two of them ended up winning a first and second place ribbon in those events. They were really excited, and it was a great lesson for them to try something new. It is exciting to watch the other boys and girls competing. Most of the kids are pretty happy because no matter what, they get a ribbon. Whats nice too is that the parents of the other swimmers are encouraging all the kids, not just their own. Maybe its because we arent at a real competitive level right now, but it is very refreshing to not have parents being nasty when the kids are racing. My husband really gets into the meets. He videos the girls races and is so excited to share the videos with their grandparents. I did some research on the benefits of swimming and found there are quite a few. I knew that it was good exercise and easy on your body. You can lose weight doing it, and its great for your muscle tone and strength. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says that two and a half hours a week can reduce the risk of chronic illness, and it can also improve a persons mental health. With all these great benefits, and the fact that my kids actually like to go to swim practice, I think we made the right choice for this summers activity.

PETERSBURG The exhibition Jewish Refugees in Shanghai (1933-1941) will run July 12 through Aug. 31, at The Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S. From 1933 to 1941, Shanghai became a modernday Noahs Ark accepting some 18,000 Jewish refugees fleeing the Holocaust in Europe. Most were from Germany and Austria, but the refugees also included students of the famed Mir Yeshiva, the only yeshiva in occupied Europe to survive the Holocaust. In the Designated Area for Stateless Refugees, in the Tilanqiao area of Shanghai, Jewish refugees lived harmoniously with local Chinese, overcoming numerous difficulties together. Conditions in the impoverished Hongkou District were harsh: 10 per room, near starvation, disastrous sanitation and scant employment. With the aid of Iraqi Jews living in Shanghai, and later of Russian Jewish locals and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, most of the Jewish refugees managed to survive and many went on to have remarkable lives. Holocaust historian David Kranzler called it the Miracle of Shanghai. The exhibition brings together for the first time photos, personal stories and artifacts from Shanghais Jewish Refugee Museum, located in the former Ohel Moshe Synagogue in the Tilanqiao Historic Area. The Florida Holocaust Museum honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The Museum is dedicated to teaching the members of all races and cultures the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for college students, $8 for students 17 and younger, and free for active military members, FHM members, USF students with ID and children 5 and younger.

The Charter Review Committee is established every five years to review the charter and recommend changes. There are 12 proposed changes to the charter. These changes include deleting the language or any of his subordinates are in Section 3.06(a) to clarify that the city manager has sole authority to appoint or remove administrative officers or employees, increasing the time to fill a vacancy on Council from 30 to 60 days in Section 3.07(c)(1) and adding Section 5.02(b), which provides that the city manager may be removed from his position by the affirmative vote of four members of Council. A lot of work has gone into this, said Mayor Leslie Waters. Weve given this a lot of consideration. Councilor Patricia Plantamura was the sole no vote when the Council voted to add these amendments to the November ballot. She said she has concerns with a couple of the proposed charter amendments, which shes brought up in workshops, and was voting no on principal. Amended the joint-use library intergovernmental agreement between the city of Seminole and St. Petersburg College, which was initially made over 10 years ago. That document was designed to guide us into the future, Edmunds said, and focused on operation, funding and staffing issues. It has survived for more than 10 years and we did decide this year that it would be a good opportunity to revisit the document and make sure it describes our current operations, he said. The updates to the agreement reflect minor operational changes, he said. Nothing of real substance was modified. Selected Vice Mayor Thom Barnhorn to represent the city as its voting delegate during the upcoming Florida League of Cities Business Conference, set for Aug. 14-16 in Hollywood, Florida.

Expires 7/10/14.070314 061914 the violence in Iraq is driving up the cost of crude oil. Current gas prices are still cheaper than this years peak price and unlikely to deter people from traveling, Jenkins said. Many travel plans have already been made, and budgets set aside. In some cases, consumers will reallocate their budgets and cut back on dining, shopping or other trip activities. On June 29, according to AAAs Fuel Gauge Report, the average price of a gallon of unleaded gasoline in the United States was $3.67. The same day last year, the price was $3.50. Floridians were paying an average of $3.62. On the same day last year, the price was $3.46. The price is a little lower closer to home. Motorists in the TampaSt. Petersburg-Clearwater Metro Area are paying an average of about $3.56. Last year, the cost was $3.39. AAA says current gas prices are the highest since 2008, but they still havent reached that same level. On July 5, 2008, the average price of a gallon of unleaded gas in Pinellas set a new record of $3.996. The highest price ever reported was $4 on July 16, 2008. Air travel is expected to increase about 1 percent this year. Holiday air travel has slowly increased since 2011, AAA reports. Airfares are down about 5 percent with the average round-trip, discounted fare for the top 40 U.S. routes costing $215, down from $228 last year. Car rentals still average about $58. Regardless of the mode of travel, hotels will likely cost more than last year. AAA says hotels at Two Diamond hotels are 15 percent higher to about $137 a night, and prices are up 9 percent at Three Diamond hotels to about $178 a night. AAAs experts say people are willing to pay a little extra to take a holiday trip. Steady improvement in the economy along with increased consumer spending and confidence are the main factors driving more Americans to take a trip, Jenkins said. Consumer spending is expected to rise 4.2 percent, because of increasing credit not rising incomes. Consumers have been hesitant to add to their credit card balances the past several years, but continued improvements in the employment picture and rising home values means they are starting to feel more comfortable taking on debt. AAAs projections are based on economic forecasting and research by IHS Global Insight. AAA has been reporting on holiday travel trends for more than two decades.

PSTA, AARP host transit town hallDUNEDIN The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and AARP presented a town hall June 25 to discuss how transportation and mobility options can help Pinellas seniors live on their own terms. More than fifty seniors and residents attended the open forum at the Hale Senior Activity Center in Dunedin to hear from several speakers about how current PSTA services and potential future services through the Greenlight Pinellas plan would benefit the regions seniors. In addition to an overall 65 percent increase in PSTA bus service, 80 percent more weekend service and extended early morning and late night transit service, seniors would benefit under Greenlight Pinellas from increased evening and weekend DART door-to-door transit for those unable to use traditional bus service. There also would an increase in frequency of connector community circulator buses for easier access to shopping, medical appointments and community services. Transportation is a key component of livable communities, because by 2025, one in five drivers will be over age 65, said Laura Cantwell, associate state director of AARP.

Seniors over age 65 who no longer drive make 15 percent fewer trips to the doctor thats something that PSTA, our connector buses and our DART paratransit service can help with, said Brad Miller, CEO of PSTA. But mobility options for seniors means more than just going to the doctor, it means being able to spend time with family and friends, it means being able to be a part of our community, and it means freedom and independence. The transit system we have now isnt adequate for those over 65, but it isnt adequate for the rest of our community either. We have a lot of college students and younger people who could be riding, so Greenlight Pinellas is really about the future, said Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala. One of the first things businesses looking to relocate to this area ask us is, whats your public transportation like? And Greenlight Pinellas will give us a great answer to that question. An AARP study found that 85 percent of seniors are extremely/very concerned about fuel prices, leading many to seek other transportation options such as public transit. The number one reason seniors in the Pinellas area move into assisted living facilities is the inability to drive anymore and lack of transportation options.Pinellas County earns health awardsCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle to its employees earned it the Well Deserved and Golden Apple awards from UnitedHealthcare.

Both commissioners received awards for their individual outstanding efforts as leaders in the community. Seel received the Presidential Advocacy Award which is given annually to county commissioners from around the state who have shown exceptional leadership in partnering with the Florida Association of Counties to advance the counties legislative agenda. She was an invaluable asset to the Association this year as it launched its new federal advocacy program. As a result of Seels advocacy, Floridas flood insurance story was told and Congress ultimately passed legislation that will help many Floridians who were financially impacted by the old law. The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act was passed and signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 21. I am honored to be chosen as a recipient of the Presidential Advocacy Award, Seel said. As a voice for the citizens of Pinellas County, it is a top priority to maintain affordable and accessible flood insurance for homeowners. I am proud to have been a part of the efforts to express to Congress why flood insurance reform was desperately needed and am pleased with the successful outcome. Latvala was awarded the Marlene Young Presidential Advocacy Award for her commitment throughout her career to protect home rule and serve Floridas counties as a leader and an advocate. This prestigious award, named after the late Marlene Young who served as a commissioner for Polk County, is presented to the county elected official who has shown extraordinary leadership and commitment to the mission of the Association. Florida Association of Counties and Pinellas County are privileged to have such a dedicated public servant that recognizes many decisions affecting citizens are made in Tallahassee, said Holley. Commissioner Latvala has been someone we could call on no matter the issue, no matter the time of year, she has always been willing to step up and help not just her own county but all of Floridas 67 counties. Throughout her 14-year career on the Board of County Commissioners, Latvala has been a leader in the Association, serving as president from 2006 through 2007 while also chairing various policy committees. She has been committed to serving Floridas counties in any capacity where she was needed. Florida Association of Counties has represented the diverse interests of Floridas counties for 85 years emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule, the concept that communities and their local leaders should make the decisions that affect their community. The association helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through advocacy, education and collaboration.6A County COUNTY NEWS, from page 5A Bill increases punishment for leaving a crash sceneTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 102 June 24, which creates the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act relating to leaving the scene of an accident. This bill increases the punishment for leaving the scene of a crash resulting in serious injury to a person. It imposes a mandatory minimum term for imprisonment of four years for a driver convicted of leaving the scene of a crash resulting in the death of a person. It increases the mandatory minimum term of imprisonment from two to four years for a driver convicted of leaving the scene of a crash resulting in the death of a person while driving under the influence. Finally, the bill imposes a minimum driver license revocation period of at least three years. The hearts and prayers of Ann and I go out to the Cohen family, and its in Aarons name that we hope to further protect Florida families with Senate Bill 102, which will create the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act, Scott said a news release. No one should have to suffer the loss of a loved one due to reckless driving, and with this important law, well be more effective in protecting families. Aaron Cohen died after a hit-and-run crash in 2012 on Rickenbacker Causeway, which connects Miami to nearby barrier islands. Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, said, As we share the road with bike riders and runners they deserve to feel safe. This bill eliminates the incentive for motorists to leave the scene of an accident, and I thank Governor Scott for his support in helping to protect victims of this terrible crime. Cohen was riding a bike at the time of the crash. Tim Bustos, executive director of the Florida Bicycle Association said, For too long now, Florida has had one of the highest bicycle and pedestrian crash rates in the nation, and an inordinate number of these crashes involve motorists that leave the scene of a crash without rendering aid or assistance. We are hopeful this new legislation will act as a deterrent for motorists who may otherwise leave the scene after causing a crash, and will act as an incentive to stay at the scene.Bill requires safety seat use for 4and 5-year-oldsTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott signed HB 225 June 24, which revises child restraint requirements to increase the safety of children passengers in motor vehicles. Current law requires every motor vehicle operator in Florida use a crash-tested, federally approved child restraint device for children 3 years or younger. HB 225 extends current requirements to include children 4 and 5 years old. As a father and grandfather, I know how important it is to make the safety of Floridas children a top priority, Scott said in a press release. With this initiative, we are working to ensure our children travel safely and remain protected on the road. We will continue to do all we can to keep every Floridian safe, so they can enjoy everything our great state has to offer with their loved ones. Several local legislators added their support to the governors action. Governor Scott has proven his dedication to Florida families once again by signing this bill into law, said Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater. HB 225 will foster great changes to keep our young children safe and secure as they travel in our state. My fellow legislators and I stand with the Governor in his support and signing of HB225 to strengthen safety regulations for our children, said Rep. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater. It is crucial that our children are protected with the proper restraint devices so they can travel without harm. News from Tallahassee

At some point, William Chalmers Jr., 55, told them to stop, and subsequently became engaged in a verbal exchange with Burrows. During the exchange, Chalmers made threatening remarks to Burrows and pulled out a gun. Burrows retreated into a bedroom of the mobile home and shut the door. Chalmers followed him to just outside the room. In an effort to calm things down, Groves stood in front of the door between Chalmers and Burrows, who was inside the room. Chalmers then fired a shot through the door, striking Burrows in the neck, investigators said. Burrows was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.Armed suspect arrested for batteryST. PETE BEACH A man armed with a screwdriver injured a patron at MacNastys Sports Bar & Grill in St. Pete Beach about 2:20 a.m. Monday, June 23. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies arrested Christopher J. Forrester, 29, of St. Petersburg for aggravated assault. Deputies responded to a call about an armed subject at MacNastys Sports Bar & Grill, 6295 Gulf Blvd. in St. Pete Beach and was told that Forrester had fled the area after a physical altercation with Jason Sefick, 36, also of St. Petersburg. Sefick told deputies that he and Forrester were in a fight when he realized he was bleeding from his head. He then noticed Forrester had a screwdriver in his hand. Stefick was able to break away, return to the bar and call for assistance. Forrester fled the scene leaving behind his sandals and sunglasses. Deputies also located the screwdriver that Forrester used to attack Stefick. Deputies requested a K9 unit and set up a perimeter. K-9 Deputy Matt Aitken, 31, and K9 Bosco arrived on scene and initiated a track, which led them through several parking lots and then north along the beach. They continued a quarter mile north along the beach jumping several fences. Bosco, the K9, then alerted to the bushes where they successfully located Forrester. He was taken into custody and treated at the scene for punctures to his left thigh and left calf, which resulted from the police K9 apprehension, according to the sheriffs report. Forrester was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $10,000. Sefick was treated by paramedics at the scene.Post 900 adviser earns national awardLARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs Deputy James Butterfield, Post 900 Lead Adviser, received the National Sheriffs Association Explorer Post Adviser of the Year award June 23 during the associations conference in Fort Worth Texas.

Outdoors 9A Seminole Beacon, July 3, 2014 11350 66th St. N., Largo727-538-7771 There are different types of dementia afflicting over 7 million people today. In the early stages of dementia, many seniors show less interest in the activities they once enjoyed which can be hard on the family and loved ones who want to help them. There is one thing that all of us can do over and over again and that is simply to hug that person! This one gesture reassures them that they are not alone, they are loved. It is an emotional lift that speaks from the heart expressing, I care, I am here for you. Hugging, holding a hand, or smiling when talking can convey more than any words. We all need some TLC, and the person with dementiais no exception. While she/he might not be able to express their need for touch in words or, in late stages of dementia, the initiation, that touch is important.Also, be aware of your body language and facial expressions. Portraying respect and patience will allow for a positive conversation as it is painful to be talked about as if one isnt present. Routine activity, carefully planned, can enrich the lives of those affected with dementia and support them in many ways by helping them stay focused, maintaining proper blood pressure, blood sugar, keeping their minds sharp, slowing down the decline of dementia and building confidence. A few activities that prove beneficial for seniors and help keep them engaged include the following: Talk about past loves and relationships. Most people with dementia can recall events from the past compared to the present. Bring out old photos to help keep the discussion going. Talk about those romantic memories from the early years. Listen to music. Create art. Use construction paper, felt, doilies, paints, markers and stickers to create a work of art. Their artwork will make great gifts for grandkids, friends and neighbors. Bake something sweet. Make and decorate cookies. Just like music, the smells of baking treats may bring back thoughtful memories. Create with fresh flowers. Buy vases and an assortment of fresh flowers, possibly flowers from their own garden, for the senior to assemble. Remember to keep it fun! Following these few guidelines can offer stimulation and enjoyment for the person affected by dementia and their loved ones. Interacting with the senior with dementia and addressing his or her daily needs can not only provide relief for the senior but also peace of mind and reduced stress for the family. Every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug or just a friendly pat on the back.

OR 727-400-6870 727-400-6870 Summer bait numbers are on the riseGathering enough bait for the day is key, as most anglers know. However, finding enough pilchards to make a difference has been a real challenge lately. Fortunately for us, it appears we now may be on the verge of a major change. Masses of juvenile pilchards have flooded our bays and beaches. These tiny baits will grow quickly and soon theyll be big enough to tempt most any game fish. These smaller baits can be used in a couple of situations. Mackerel, jack crevalle and ladyfish numbers have increased with the arrival of the fry bait and can often be seen busting through the pods of bait. Using a quarter inch mesh cast net will allow you to net the baits without getting a bunch hung up in the net. Anchor up in the area that the bait is the thickest and toss out handfuls of freebees. This should bring the fish right behind the boat. Gag grouper opened this week and given the long closure fishing for them should be excellent for a while. Target ledges and artificial reefs for best action. Ledges as shallow as 20 foot are holding keeper gags as weve found out on recent mangrove snapper trips. Use live pinfish or grass grunts and be ready to turn the fish away from the structure. These shallower spots demand your full attention. Blacktip sharks are thick in certain areas through out the Intracoastal Waterway. Deeper cuts and channels are prime holding spots for these 3to 5-foot sharks. Using a chum block and frisky pinfish, weve been able to find non-stop action on these hard fighters as long as the tide is moving. Using monofilament leaders and a large circle hook has made a big difference in the amount of bites versus using a steel leader.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotma il.com.

Nature eventsClearwater opens a park for horsesCLEARWATER The city of Clearwater has opened a 27-acre equestrian park just south of Lake Chautauqua Park equipped with facilities to allow horse-owners and their horses a place to enjoy a ride through a nature preserve. Lake Chautauqua Equestrian and Nature Preserve features parking spaces for horse trailers, a shaded pavilion with picnic benches, and even a self-watering trough. The land was acquired by the city in 2009 through a Florida Communities Trust grant in the citys efforts to provide the community more natural park recreation opportunities.

The city of Clearwater is committed to giving its citizens areas to enjoy natural ecosystems and biodiversity through land preservation. We have 110 parks in Clearwater, with 28 of them labeled nature preserves. The project was funded through a $200,000 Recreational Trails Program grant by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Additional funding for the project came from Penny for Pinellas sale tax. Lake Chautauqua Park is at 2312 Landmark Drive, south of Enterprise Road in Clearwater. The parks amenities include parking, trails and picnic areas.

PETERSBURG Northside Hospital recently received the Mission: Lifeline Gold Receiving Quality Achievement Award for implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who suffer severe heart attacks. Each year in the United States, approximately 250,000 people have a STEMI, or ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, caused by a complete blockage of blood flow to the heart that requires timely treatment. To prevent death, its critical to immediately restore blood flow, either by surgically opening the blocked vessel or by giving clot-busting medication. The American Heart Associations Mission: Lifeline program helps hospitals, emergency medical services and communities improve response times so people who suffer from a STEMI receive prompt, appropriate treatment. The programs goal is to streamline systems of care to quickly get heart attack patients from the first 911 call to hospital treatment. Northside Hospital is dedicated to improving the quality of care for our patients who suffer a heart attack, and the American Heart Associations Mission: Lifeline program is helping us accomplish that goal through internationally respected clinical guidelines, said Dia Nichols, FACHE, president and CEO of Northside Hospital, in a press release. We are pleased to be recognized for our dedication and achievements in cardiac care, and I am very proud of our team. Northside Hospital earned the award by meeting specific criteria and standards of performance for the quick and appropriate treatment of STEMI patients to open the blocked artery.

Symptoms of chikungunya fever include sudden high fever, severe joint pain and swelling, back pain, rash as well as headache, body ache, nausea, vomiting and redness around the eyes. Rarer symptoms involve the brain, eyes, heart, kidney or other organs.Health officials say fatal infections are rare, but chronic joint pain, arthritis, loss of energy and depression lasting weeks to years has been reported. Other mosquito-borne illnesses include West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, Dengue Fever, Malaria, Yellow Fever and Rift Valley Fever. Pinellas County participates in a sentinel program that alerts officials when mosquito-borne illness may be in the area. Technicians monitor the mosquito population through traps located around the county. Mosquito Control also monitors viruses through sentinel chickens caged in eight locations. Routine blood tests on these chickens detect virus antibodies, which serves as an early alert that a virus is present locally. If a virus is detected, the state DOH will issue an advisory.For more information or to report a mosquito problem, call 4647503 or visit www.pinellascounty .org/publicworks/mosquito/de fault.htm. By SUZETTE PORTERState and local officials are asking the public to help control the mosquito population. A simple and easy way to prevent mosquito-borne illnesses is to follow the Drain and Cover method, said Dr. Celeste Philip, Deputy Secretary for Health and Deputy State Health Officer for Childrens Medical Services. Drain water from any containers around your home, cover your skin with clothing and mosquito repellent and cover doors and windows with screen to keep mosquitoes out of your home or business. The rainy season is especially challenging for Pinellas County Mosquito Control. Technicians have been aggressively treating known breeding grounds by ground and by air. They have also been busy lately responding to calls for help from county residents. Mosquitos can breed in as little as a quarter to a half inch of standing water. One of the best ways to slow down the growth of the mosquito population is to drain all standing water. The state DOH offers the following suggestions. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flowerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rainwater has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that arent being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. It is important to protect against being bitten to prevent the spread of mosquito-borne diseases. When outside, especially at dusk and dawn, it is important to wear shoes, socks, long pants and long-sleeves. Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according toOfficials need help to reduce mosquito population the label. Repeat applications according to directions. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches and patios to keep mosquitos out of the home.Mosquito-borne illnessesThe Department of Health in Pinellas County is cautioning residents about a viral mosquitoborne disease called chikungunya fever that has made its way to the Caribbean from Africa, Asia and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific.

12A Viewpoints Seminole Beacon, July 3, 2014Its time to pass the hat for Hillary Clinton. The former secretary of state has tried to distance herself from her weeks-ago assertion that after husband Bill left the White House, the couple were dead broke. She told PBS that the line was inartful, but only after she told a British paper that she does not count herself among the truly well-off. Nobody knows the troubles shes seen. In the United Kingdom pushing her latest book for which she received a reported eight-figure advance Clinton told The Guardian that the Clintons should not be seen as out-of-touch swells: We pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well-off, not to name names; and weve done it through dint of hard work. Let us check the boxes of that quote. The Democrat essentially asserted that U.S. income taxes are cleaning out the family coffers. Expect her to call for tax reform a la Mitt Romney, as she believes that paying taxes has kept the Clintons who, according to Politico, reported earnings of $109 million in the eight years preceding 2008 from being truly well-off. Through dint of hard work? Surely, Clinton worked harder as first lady and secretary of state than now. Ergo, she sees the speaking fees and book advances as just reward for what she often refers to as the call to public service. Now we know what public service means: Run for office; collect a top2-percent paycheck; then cash in. If you engaged in public service, youre entitled to it. With such an attitude, it should come as no surprise that Clinton will be paid $225,000 to speak at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas fundraiser in October. A private foundation will pay her fee so who cares if the money goes not to students but to a speaker who excels at self-serving spin? I dont begrudge the Clintons their wealth. Its just that every time I hear or read Hillary Clinton confess that shes a gal who just cant say no to public service, I reach for my wallet. Say this for Romney: He made his fortune in the private marketplace. Likely 2016 presidential rival Joe Biden knows a good opening when he sees it. On Monday, the veep told the White House Summit on Working Families not to hold it against him that he doesnt own a single stock or bond and has no savings accounts. He said, But I got a great pension, and I got a good salary. PolitiFact rated Bidens statement as half true, as the Bidens own five bank accounts. Also, wife Jill owns stocks. That said, it is refreshing to see a politician who recognizes that a six-figure salary and generous benefits are a fair reward for elective office. He even described his $230,700 salary as a lot of money. Biden seems to understand the fact that fundraising, which puts politicians in an orbit with the super-rich, doesnt mean they are entitled to a private-plane lifestyle. Let the reader beware. Democrats who crusade against income inequality oftentimes are counting the days until they, too, can rake in many times more than the median earner they claim to champion. Worse, in their case, they think theyre so selfless that they deserve it.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sf chronicle.com. Im aiming this column mostly at grandparents, lets say people aged 60 and older with grandchildren who are 10 to 20 years old. This week, as we celebrate the 238th birthday of our beloved country, Id like you to roll the calendar forward 50 years. You wont be hanging around at that time, of course. Nor will I. But our grandchildren will still be on deck (or so we hope). Today I want you to picture your grandkids standing at your gravesite or thumbing through a family photo album. Imagine, as they think of you, that they ask this question: I wonder what Grandpa or Grandma did, or even thought, about global warming way back then, when there was still time to do something about it? I wont attempt to imagine the answers to that question. Instead, Ill list some possible situations our grandchildren may face at that time, a half-century from now. For example, if theyll be living in Florida, odds are strong their homes will be inland, far from what you and I today regard as the Florida coastline. Much of the coast will have been diminished, washed away by steadily rising tides.Likewise with New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle and other coastal communities. But by then, wont the engineers have learned how to build dikes and coastal walls to hold back the sea? Lets be hopeful, and say yes. But do you know how much those seawalls will cost to design, build and be maintained? Guess who will foot the bills for all that? Not you and me. Our grandchildren, thats who. They may need every nickel theyve got left, just to stay alive. Basic food costs may have skyrocketed because of the droughts and flooding that have become increasingly common as climate change batters our countrys agricultural production. Home insurance prices may go through the roof, as a result of the floods and tornadoes that, even in 2014, have grown in number. Hundreds of reputable scientists have warned that global warming will bring increased air pollution, insect-borne diseases and longer allergy seasons. The growth in the number and severity of heat waves will result in more savage wildfires. Greater reliance on air conditioning may further strain our already burdened electric power system. And so on. Before I go further, Ill acknowledge that strong counter-claims exist, disputing many of the global-warming threats. Added to the argument is the knowledge that even if the United States today abruptly reduced its carbon-dioxide emissions, the worldwide benefits would be limited unless major polluters such as China and India also join in the effort. So what shall we do? Nothing? Wring our hands, sit and hope? For many persons, the clinching argument against taking action is the enormous economic pain it will cause to all participants. Coal mines will be shut down. Industries will howl at the cost of installing CO2-reduction measures in their factories. Politicians from all parties will quake in their boots and then dig in their heels as antipollution measures are viewed, correctly, as threats to their constituents job security. To all of these objections, the climatechange activists reply, We agree with you. The cost of saving the planet will be enormous. But the price of inaction, of waiting too long, may well be the end of civilization as we know it, or hope to know it. We realize that anti-pollution efforts by the USA alone cannot be the full solution to global warming, but until or unless the United States leads the way, how likely will it be that other industrial nations will also join the fight? Today, Im not saying that every American should immediately choose up sides on the climate change controversy. Our country is already divided on too many other issues. What Im urging is that every thinking American resolve to learn as much about climate change as he or she can. If you own a computer or live near a library, you have access to hundreds of books and articles about our globe and its environment. If we keep an open mind and study until our eyeballs start to ache, we can become a self-appointed expert on this all-important topic. At that point, we can then decide what is the truth, and which policies (public and private) deserve our support. Then we can be fully confident about which wheels we should put our shoulders to. On this Fourth of July, if youd like to do something really patriotic, try this: Go to your computer; boot up climate change and start to read. Become a GWN a global warming nut. Your grandchildren may not be watching you today, but in 2064 they may be asking the question I posed in my second paragaph (above).Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

ShiettPhone: 727-397-5563LETTERSLands are valuable asset for drinking waterEditor: Our forward-thinking county leaders purchased the Cross Bar land in 1976 and the Al Bar land in 1990 to ensure that the residents of Pinellas County would always and forever have an independent source of drinking water. These lands are located in Pasco County on top of the very rich Floridan aquifer. Recently some have suggested selling these lands in exchange for capital that would go into our general fund. I strongly reject the notion that we should sell such a valuable asset for a one-time injection of cash into our budget. As most of you know I have voted twice to keep these lands in the hands of their rightful owners, the Pinellas County taxpayers. The land is paid for and makes a profit from the sale of pine needle and timber harvested on site. We simply do not know what the future will bring in regards to water availability. As leaders, it is imperative that we prioritize our communitys needs, and fresh drinking water must be looked at with the upmost importance. My office has, and continues to, receive telephone calls, letters and emails urging us to keep these important lands. I intend to do everything in my power to protect this most valuable asset. I would appreciate your readers emailing all the county commissioners and letting them know they do not want to sell this land! John Morroni Pinellas County commissioner Treasure IslandPark drives bigger wedge between Belleair residentsEditor Your Belleair Bee article on Belleairs Hunter Memorial Park implied the project is being funded with private money. The article does not say that taxpayer money, $108,625, is being spent by the town. It does not say that more town money will be spent to maintain Hunter Memorial Park. A quote in the article said, I hope the park will bring the town together. In fact, the park has driven a bigger wedge between those who believe when Belleair borrowed $10 million it should be careful how it spends money, concentrating on needs, not wants, and those who believe we should keep spending, borrowing, raising fees, and possibly raising taxes. Steve Johnson BelleairSeminole city manager will be sorely missedEditor: I was saddened to learn of the upcoming resignation of Frank Edmunds as city manager of the city of Seminole. While serving on the City Council, I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with Mr. Edmunds. Mr. Edmunds has provided the city with many years of wise counsel and his professionalism will be sorely missed. Frank, on behalf of the residents of Seminole, I thank you for your service and wish you well in your future endeavors. Peter Hofstra SeminoleDont give up the search for aircraftEditor: Malaysia Flight 370 March 8, 2014. Its a bird its a plane its Superman in quest of the mysterious disappearance of the huge aircraft with 239 aboard as the man of steel combed the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean with super X-ray vision to no avail, even for this cape crusader. Its not my intention here to disparage the gravity of this horrific and watery descent into this huge ocean, but rather an expression of hope as remotely more slim as time slips away in search of 370s location, just three months ago this June 8. Its gut-wrenching that family and friends continue to anguish in not knowing where the final disposition of the passengers. The search should not be abandoned, at least for now. Malaysian Air should share in the brunt of the bill. Art Bailey SeminoleReferendum all about St. PetersburgEditor: The November 1 percent transportation sales tax referendum for Pinellas County will raise Pinellas sales tax to 8 percent, the highest in the state of Florida, and if you think that this 14 percent tax hike spending increase will stop here, I will sell you the Brooklyn Bridge. Other cities rail systems have had cost overruns and future tax increases scheduled, and further, if approved, and light rail begins, but for some reason like low ridership, light rail fails to operate, then Pinellas County taxpayers must repay the government for their investment. Yes, there is a place for light rail in large metropolitan cities like New York City where there is little parking available for automobiles and many of the residents live in large, high-rise apartments, near the rail stations, whereas, in Pinellas County most residents live in homes or condos and we have sufficient parking for automobiles. Further, DOT is spending $4.8 million to speed work on U.S. 19 and will complete the project nine months early. Something else that has not been considered is the fact that after the winter residents have left the area for six months and the yearround residents have left for the mountains or other cooler climates, who will be riding that train from Clearwater to downtown St Petersburg? The answer is nobody, but who do you think will pay for the empty train? Right, you will. Former St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster had it right when he stated any talk of light rail must include Hillsborough County. Hillsborough County residents defeated this 1 percent transportation sales tax referendum in 2010 and it will not be considered anytime soon. This is all about downtown St. Petersburg and keeping the Rays downtown, at the cost to all Pinellas County residents. Hopefully, North Pinellas County residents will remember this when they vote in November and will vote accordingly.

Rick Scott signs college affordability bill into lawTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott recently signed into law House Bill 851, a bill sponsored by Sen. Jack Latvala that will reduce the cost of a four-year Florida University Plan for newborn children by nearly $20,000. Among several sweeping changes, the bill provides a reduction in the future cost of Floridas state universities, allowing the Florida Prepaid College Board to better predict tuition and fee costs covered by the Stanley G. Tate Florida Prepaid College Program. Before passage of the bill, the cost of a Florida Prepaid Contract for a university had grown to more than $50,000 for a four-year newborn plan, pricing many families out of their dream of saving enough money so that their children can get a higher education. Providing greater access to a college education is one of the most fundamental ways we can ensure economic growth and a better quality of life for the people in our state, Latvala said in a press release. Latvala said he considered this bill a top priority during the 2014 Legislative Session. This bill will make higher education in Florida more affordable for everyone so that their dreams of success can become a reality, he added. The Florida Prepaid Board estimates that the lump sum price of the four-Year Florida University Plan for a newborn will drop from the current price of $54,000 to $35,000 or less. Those with current Florida Prepaid plans will also see a reduction in the cost of their plans, with about 50,000 existing plans receiving refunds or payment reductions because of the new law. According to the board, eligible accountholders with Florida Prepaid can expect to be notified in September about their specific refund or payment reduction.

Tickets start at $16.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. Jessy J and her band will perform songs from her latest No. 1 Billboard charting jazz album as well as many other hits. The MexicanAmerican saxophonist/singer/songwriter was recently featured on the cover of Jazziz Magazine and on the cover of Saxophone Journal Magazine and Latina Style Magazine. Her song Tequila Moon hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Jazz chart and received the Contemporary Jazz Song of the Year award from Billboard Magazine. Her song Tropical Rain, from her 2009 release, reached the top of the Groove Jazz Music chart and she soon followed with the No. 1 spot on the Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown, as well as the Billboard Jazz charts. All this success resulted in Jessy J being named Radio and Records Debut Artist of the Year in 2008.Musical prodigyThe artist known today as Jessy J was named Jessica Arellano when she was born in Portland, Oregon in 1982. Her father hails from Mexico and her mother is a native Texan. As a child, she experienced festive, live Latin music frequently: Her parents often hosted parties at which La Banda music of her fathers home country would flow all night long. It was apparent early on that Jessy was a true musical prodigy. According to her biography provided by Monterey International, she began playing piano at age 4 and spent most of her childhood as a competitive artist, performing at major conferences, competitions and festivals. These childhood experiences and the discipline and work ethic she gained from them would prove to be a great testing ground for her future career in the industry. In addition to her familys cultural heritage, Jessy also sought inspiration from other musical wellsprings. She was a huge fan of Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane, but also enjoyed listening to pop. She graduated from USC with a degree in jazz studies where she was named Most Outstanding Jazz Student of her class. After graduation, she didnt waste any time contemplating career decisions: She jumped straight into recording sessions with artists like Michael Buble and she toured with The Temptations (2005-6) and Jessica Simpson. Jessy also joined the cast of the off-Broadway show Blast! in 2004. She drew on her range of skills as an actress, singer, dancer and sax player as she performed in the U.S., London and Japan. While the stage appealed to her, it was during this time that she felt compelled to write and perform more of her own music. With her first recording, Tequila Moon, she realized her dream.Tequila Moon and beyondJessy J released her debut studio album, Tequila Moon, in March 2008 on Peak Records. All songs on the album were mixed, recorded and produced by Paul Brown. The album featured a number of talented studio musicians, such as Dave Beyer on drums and percussion, Paul Brown on guitar, Kiki Ebsen on piano and strings and Richie Gajate-Garcia on percussion. Tequila Moon earned high praise from critics and helped propel the hopeful musician beyond session-player status. Her 2009 follow-up, True Love, reinforced her standing as a talented newcomer to the contemporary jazz scene. The hit Tropical Rain from True Love reached the No. 1 spot on the Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown, as well as the R&R and Billboard jazz charts. Jessy appeared on the October 2009 covers of Saxophone Journal and Latina Style Magazine in February 2010. In September 2010, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers selected this multitalented musician for its prestigious ASCAPLUS writPhoto courtesy of JESSY JJessy J performs July 16 at Largo Cultural Center. See JESSY J, page 8Bing award. Jessys third album, Hot Sauce, was released in September 2011 on Heads Up International. The album highlights her collaborations with some of todays most prominent contemporary jazz musicians, including guitarists Paul

Brace your garage door 1. After Hurricane Andrew, engineers looked at how the homes in South Florida failed during the high winds. Four out of five homes that had major structural damage lost their garage doors first. Older garage doors in good condition can be braced with retrofit kits available at most home centers. New garage doors must meet stringent wind load requirements. 2. Protect your windows 2. By shuttering your windows with a code-approved, commercially available product or a minimum of 7/16 exterior plywood (FBC 2010 1609.1.2), you can increase your homes ability to withstand wind by one category of storm strength. In other words, a home that could survive a Category 2 storm can now handle a Category 3. If the wind gets into your home, it can force the roof upward, possibly allowing high winds to tear it off. 3. Brace your gable end roof 3. A gabled roof has two slopes that come together to form a ridge or a peak at the top. Homes with gabled roofs are more likely to suffer collapse of the end wall from high winds because they are often not braced properly during construction.

Hot Sauce showcases eight original songs along with adventurous new arrangements of Francis Anthony Eg Whites pop hit Leave Right Now and Duke Ellingtons jazz classic In a Sentimental Mood.Second ChancesLast year, Jessy J released her fourth studio album, Second Chances. The self-produced recording features collaborations with Grammy Award nominated keyboardist-producer Jeff Lorber, Grammy Awardwinning guitarist Norman Brown, renowned bassist Jimmy Haslip (formerly with The Yellowjackets) and legendary pianist Joe Sample. As a press release promoting Second Chances points out, the album is a major milestone for the artist as she takes over the reigns as the producer of the new album. Simultaneously, Second Chances represents a course change for Jessy, who purposely set out to meld her love for jazz and Latin rhythms with R&B grooves. The album title, Second Chances, developed out of the theme that its never too late to try again. Getting a second chance to do something that you messed up on the first time, Jessy explains in the press release. In this case, for me it was with something that happened the previous year. I realized that this year I had a second chance and every day is new, is fresh. The title track is really an inspirational song about doing something you really want to do. Some of the songs on Second Chances, released by Shanachie Entertainment, feature two in the title including the first single, Listen 2 The Groove, co-written by Lorber; Tango for Two, Dos, Twice and Double Trouble. The 10-song set features eight originals and two covers including the Roberta Flack hit Feel Like Makin Love and the Sergio Mendes classic Magalenha. I like to play music that people will recognize and connect to and be familiar with and also play music thats original, that really inspires them and creates new memories, Jessy says in the press release. Jessy, a big fan of s and s music, chose to include Flacks hit Feel Like Makin Love. Roberta is a gorgeous singer, she says. We felt that we could redo it in a way that would make it special again and also make it more current. I always thought of it kind of in a Robin Thicke mode with the recurring guitar theme. It also has a Brazilian vibe, the vocals are laid back and almost in a hushed tone. And its completely re-harmonized. I like arranging music and harmonizing it. Jessys passion for Latin music shines through on the Sergio Mendes classic Magalehna, one of her all-time favorite Brazilian tunes. On Dos a lovely guitar intro gives way to Jessy on both flute and soprano saxophone. That song is a really sexy song, she says. Its about two things: the good and the bad. Sections of the music had a reflective feeling that was dark and then other parts of the music were light. We wanted to have the alter ego two things. One of my heroes is Grover Washington Jr. Hes my favorite soprano saxophonist and I always think of him when Im playing that instrument. Second Chances may be all about getting the chance to do something over again, but for Jessy this album is a celebration of firsts as well. In addition to taking on the role of producer for the first time, she was able to work with two new artists on her wish list through her collaborations with Jeff Lorber and Norman Brown. The Mexican-American saxophonist/singer/songwriter has a lot to look forward to as she continues to enjoy the success of her hard work and dedication. Its a great life and Im grateful for it, Jessy says. Its going to be a good year.
