Thats when his mother remarried and he was adopted by the man he considers his father. I call him Dad, though hes not my biological father, Dr. Bressler said. So when his wife, Maureen, and his mother-in-law met representatives of the Sallie House, a safe haven for children in the countys foster care system, at a Freedom Square health fair last September, something clicked for him. I was really very lucky, he said. But over the years its always been weighing on my mind. Who knows where Id be without my father. He was a role model for me. He was a dentist, too. I followed in his footsteps. He added, If my Dad didnt adopt me I dont know where I would be.

See TAX EXEMPTION, page 5A By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Commission is asking permission from its citizens to create a program that would grant ad valorem tax exemptions to new businesses and existing businesses that want to expand. Commissioners approved the referendum question June 3, which reads: Shall the Board of County Commissioners of Pinellas County be authorized to grant pursuant to s.3, Art. VII of the State Constitution, property tax exemptions to new businesses and expansions of existing businesses that are expected to create new, full-time jobs in the county. Residents will decide yes or no Aug. 26. If approved, tax exemptions to qualified businesses would be granted per project by separate ordinances. The economic ad valorem tax exemption legislation allows Pinellas County to encourage job creation and capital investment by new and expanding businesses and be competitive in regional and statewide economic development efforts, Economic Development Director Mike Meidel said in a memo to commissioners. At least 38 counties, including Hillsborough and Sarasota, plus 20 municipalities, including Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota, currently offer a tax exemption. State statute allows counties and cities to grant exemptions to businesses for up to 10 years for economic development purposes. The exemption may be granted for up to 100 percent of the assessed value of eligible improvements to real and tangible property for qualifying businesses.The statute defines eligible business types and requires minimum new job creation requirements, which include manufacturing or Qualified Target Industry, 10 new jobs; business with greater than 50 See DENTIST, page 4A

Twice in the past year first in December right before Christmas, and most recently on June 28 Dr. Bressler brought a group of these children into his Seminole dental practice, Dental Care Group, 8381 Seminole Blvd. He provided free dental care for them cleanings and fillings, X-rays for those with toothaches, and one child even needed a root canal, he said. His staff, including office manager Danielle Davis, who played a large role in coordinating the dental appointments for the kids, donated their time to the cause. I really have an amazing staff, Dr. Bressler said. Theyre the best. He had two other local dentists assist him that day, and as the charitable event grows, he hopes to find others willing to donate their time, including a pediatric specialist. For many of these kids, its the first time theyre seeing a dentist, he said. Often money has to be used for other things, food and clothes, so a lot of them have never been to a dentist before, Dr. Bressler said. So he tried to make the experience as fun as possible for them, with movies playing in the waiting room. Rep. Larry Ahearn, who rents an office in the same complex as Dr. Bressler, stopped by to greet them and handed out state of Florida coloring books and puzzles. Theyre the most vulnerable segment of society, Dr. Bressler said. Were just trying to play a little role in their life to make it a little better. Though some of them might not think it because theyre in a dentist office.Dr. Adam Bressler does dental work on a child from The Sallie House at his dental practice Dental Care Group June 28.

Bill Young Regional Reservoir has been offline for repairs the past couple of years. The reservoir began operating in 2005. In December 2006, cracks began to form in the facilitys soil-cement erosion control lining. Over time, the abnormal cracks appeared in several areas, eventually forming on 70 percent of the interior face of the reservoir. Its been years, since the reservoir could be filled to capacity. Finally, a repair project, which began in February 2013, is nearing completion, and Tampa Bay Water expects to begin refilling the reservoir this summer. When fully operational, the reservoir can hold 15.5 billion gallons of water. Officials estimate that the Reservoir Renovation Project will be finished by December. Kiewit Infrastructure South, the contractor renovating the storage facility, put in a bid of $162.4 million in 2011 to make repairs and to increase capacity at the reservoir by another 3 billion gallons. Later, it turned out that increasing capacity was not feasible, reducing the cost of the project to about $129 million. Construction plans called for Photo courtesy of TAMPA BAY WATERRepairs at the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir are going on according to plan, and refilling of the storage facility is scheduled to begin this summer.work to occur from the bottom of the reservoir up, so filling could begin while construction continues near the top of the berm, according to a news release. The entire job was scheduled to take advantage of the rainy season. Successfully achieving the initial fill date has been a goal of Tampa Bay Water and the project team since the renovation began, so that Tampa Bay Water can bank water in its savings account this summer, officials said. Water stored in the reservoir comes from the Tampa Bypass Canal and the Hillsborough and Alafia rivers. A portion of the surface water goes to the Tampa Bay Regional Surface Water Treatment Plant for treatment and distribution; surplus water is conveyed to the reservoir for storage and use during dry times. Tampa Bay Water filed a federal lawsuit in December 2008 against HDR, as well as the contractor Barnard Construction and the construction manager CDG, after the cracks were discovered. Tampa Bay Waters board rejected a $30 million settlement offer from HDR after the boards advisers estimated the agency could get as much as $97 million if they won the lawsuit. A federal jury ruled against Tampa Bay Water April 10, saying that HDR did not breach its standard of care when designing the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. Tampa Bay Water appealed the ruling and lost. The United States Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued its opinion Sept. 23, 2013, affirming the judgment of the trial court. Tampa Bay Water provides wholesale water to the public utility systems of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. Don Skelton named TBARTA interim directorThe Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority board of directors unanimously selected Don Skelton to be its interim executive director. Skelton replaces Bob Clifford who has resigned to join engineering firm Parsons Brinckerhoff. The board also unanimously expressed its appreciation for Cliffords years of service as TBARTAs first and sole executive director and wished him well in his future pursuits. Skelton has a long career in transportation planning and programs. He served as secretary of District 7 Office of the Florida Department of Transportation from 2005 until 2012. During that time, he served on the TBARTA board of directors as ex officio member, and was instrumental in providing support for the development of TBARTAs Master Transportation Plan. Presently, vice president at H.W. Lochner providing transportation engineering services for the Tampa Bay region and Central Florida. Ronnie Duncan, chairman of the TBARTA Board, stated that he was delighted that Skelton has agreed to once again step in and support TBARTA. Don was there when we started and played a major role in our early success. There could not be better person to serve in this capacity as we work through the process of selecting a permanent executive director, Duncan said. TBARTA is the regional transportation authority, which provides regional transportation planning and connectivity of people and freight throughout the seven county Tampa Bay region. For more information, call Donald Conn at 641-9963. TBARTA was created by the Florida Legislature in 2007 to plan and develop a multimodal transportation system that will connect the seven counties of the Tampa Bay region Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas and Sarasota.

Eligible companies would be required to submit a formal written application and each will be considered separately. If the exemption were approved, the business and the county would enter into a written agreement, which is required to include a status report. State rules allow enough flexibility to allow tax exemption programs to be tailored to meet local economic development objectives. According to a fact sheet from Pinellas County Economic Development, the exemptions would not increase taxes to county residents. The program does not exclude businesses from school taxes or other taxes levied by other authorities. Businesses that do not meet performance requirements would have its exemption revoked in whole or in part. The program is targeted toward businesses that have the majority of customers outside Pinellas, so they would not be competing with the local market. Only new buildings and new equipment built or purchased to accommodate new employees are eligible for an exemption. Land is not eligible.

Pinellas Park police responded to a call about a disturbance in the area of 78th Avenue and 49th Street Monday morning. Public information officer Sgt. Adam Geissenberger provided a summary of events that occurred between 10 and 10:30 a.m. that led to the arrest of 15-year-old Nicholas Brian Cummings. At 10:05 a.m. Cummings entered the Walgreens located at 7751 49th St. N. and selected several food items from the shelves, Geissenberger reported. Cummings passed all points of purchase and made no effort to pay for the items that he had selected. A staff member who asked him to pay for the items confronted Cummings. Cummings took a full 2-liter bottle of soda and threw it at the clerk. The bottle missed the clerk and Cummings fled the area on foot. Next, Cummings went to a parking lot on the east side of 49th Street just north of 76th Avenue, where he reportedly began to throw rocks at two parked vehicles while consuming the items he took from Walgreens. Thats when patrons and employees from Sonic, 7725 49th St. N., got involved. They confronted the teen and told him to stop throwing rocks. Cummings approached one of the patrons, a 59-year-old female and threw two rocks at her, striking her once, which resulted in injury. A Sonic employee tried to intervene, and Cummings fled the area. The employee, a 29-year-old male, followed Cummings, who had armed himself with a large, heavy tree branch. He struck the employee on the arm with the branch, causing injury. Cummings then ran north to 79 th Avenue where he struck a parked vehicle with a rock, breaking out the windshield and damaging the drivers side window. The teen continued to flee, according to the police report, and then threw a large decorative lawn stone through the window of an occupied residence. At this time, Cummings was located by officers and taken into custody without incident. Cummings lied about who he was, Geissenberger reported. His identity was made known with the assistance of other law enforcement personnel. The teens actions caused more than $3,000 in property damage and injury to two people. He was arrested and taken to the juvenile assessment center where he was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, four counts of criminal mischief, two charges of aggravated battery, obstruction by disguised person, retail theft and throwing a deadly missile.Pinellas Park police investigate stabbingPINELLAS PARK Pinellas Park police responded to a call about a stabbing about 9:43 p.m. June 29 in the 6700 block of 77th Terrace N. According to the police report, a citizen called to tell police that her son had stabbed her nephew and then turned the knife on himself. The victim then fled the scene in fear of the suspect. The suspect also fled the scene. A police K-9 unit responded to the scene and made contact with the caller. She informed arriving personnel that her son had fled on foot with a knife stuck in his chest. About five minutes later, police located the victim, Timothy Adams, 32, at a nearby residence. Rescue personnel transported Adams to the hospital as a trauma alert due to a penetrating stab wound to the chest, the report said. Meanwhile a police officer and K-9 unit, Tank, searched for the suspect and located him about 10:05 p.m. in the 7800 block of 70th Street. Police said that the suspect failed to comply with orders to surrender and was subdued by Tank. Police said that the suspect, Olin Hess, 37, of Pinellas Park had lifethreatening injuries due to a self-inflicted penetrating stab wound to the chest. He also was transported to a local hospital as a trauma alert. The mother told police that when she arrived home she had a brief conversation with her son, Hess. She said he had been complaining most of the day that he did not want his cousin, Adams, in the house. He gave no reason for his feelings and told his mother that he wanted Adams out of the house, the report said. When she refused to make him leave, Hess told her that he would stab him. Hess then went into his bedroom, and when he came out, he was armed with a knife. He went into the room where Adams was and stabbed him in the chest. Adams fled the home. When the mother went outside to call 911, Hess left the home with a knife sticking out of his chest. The mother told police that her son went back inside the home briefly, before fleeing on foot. Adams was listed in stable condition at an area hospital. Hess injuries are more serious, police said. Hess was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest without violence. Bond was set at $10,150.Explorer Post 900 participates in competitionPinellas County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post 900 recently participated in the 2014 Florida Association of Police Explorers State Competition June 23-28 in Crystal River, Florida, competing against 29 other explorer posts.

Gag grouper season opened at the beginning of the month and as expected, fishing has been very good. Big ledges and artificial reef structures are holding lots of gag grouper. The fish can be at any depth, from inside of the Skyway out to 150 feet deep. Weve been taking out plenty of large pinfish, but have been having most of our success on dead bait, frozen sardines, shad or threadfin herring. All will work. Red grouper are holding as shallow as 60 feet. Drift fishing with live pinfish over scattered live bottom has been very productive. Generally speaking, the deeper you go the better average you will find. Black tip shark fishing has been excellent along channel edges and mud bottom flats in 6 to 10 feet of water throughout the Intracoastal. Anchor up-tide of the area and put out a fresh chum block. Use frisky pinfish and grass grunts for bait suspended under a small balloon, with a 60-pound mono leader and a large circle hook typically 6/0 or 7/0. Most of the sharks are around 3 feet with the occasional 5 footer possible. Tarpon fishing has been good the first couple of hours of the day. Deep residential canals are good places to check for rolling fish in the morning. Putting out a spread of fresh shad or mullet will occasionally attract the attention of the lazy rollers. Tampa bay has been hit or miss the past few weeks. However, I would imagine that as we approach the full moon, things should get back on track. Look for the fish around bait schools and deep holes along bridges. Cast artificial lures to rolling fish or soak fresh dead bait on the bottom.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com.

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

The money will be used to fund a major remodeling project at Girls Inc.s facilities located at 7700 61st St. N. Its really exciting, said Kristina Fortner, Girls Inc.s executive director. The biggest portion of the project is the planned state-of-the-art STEM lab that will be built. Itll look like a regular high school or middle school lab, Fortner said, with separate islands for projects, high-powered microscopes and other equipment needed to properly conduct experiments. Theyll actually be able to conduct experiments in a controlled environment, she added. Currently, as the girls work on science experiments, they often transplant them from room to room to work on their various stages. We have the program and the space, but the space isnt utilized for what it could be, Fortner added. Girls Inc. has partnerships with corporations like Lockheed Martin, Tech Data and GE Aviation. A proper science lab will allow them to visit the facilities and have a STEM-level space for presentations. The cafeteria and kitchen also will get a facelift. The cafeteria will be completely demolished and rebuilt, and the kitchen will get commercial-grade stoves, a new dishwasher and a warmer. Right now cooking for 200 girls in the summer is not an easy task, Fortner said. Theyll also make the space better suited for parent-child cooking classes and events. The current ceramic studio also will be redone and turned into an art studio, and the library will get new wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. Many of Girls Inc.s books are in storage because they dont have enough space for them in the library. New accordion doors will be installed in the multi-purpose room so they can properly divide the room when its needed for several uses at once. Lighting in the facility will be updated and be more environmental friendly as well. Aesthetically, the lobby will be painted and new cubbies will be installed. Itll be very much in line with Girls Inc. national red, black and gray, that boldness, Fortner said. Fortner hopes the work will be completed by June, but says that the projects architect, RGA Design Group, is still reviewing the plans. We have to keep in mind that we have to stay operational at the same time, she said. So weve had several meetings with them about what that might look like. Girls Inc. also received a $10,000 Allegany grant to build a community garden. Right now, the organization has a small garden with tomatoes, sweet potatoes, jalapenos and lettuce that theyve put into place themselves and have the girls work on. This community garden grant is a partnership with the Edible Peace Patch Project, All Childrens Hospital and Kohls Cooks for Kids. There will be 12 family plots in addition to a community garden. The Edible Peace Patch Project will help them by installing an irrigation system, and Kohls will offer family cooking classes. Our goal is to develop a plant-to-plate sort of mentality, Fortner said. This is in line with the kitchen renovations, as Girls Inc. of Pinellas was named the recipient of a $280,000 Pinellas County Community Development Block Grant for a major remodeling project that includes a new STEM lab and a new cafeteria and kitchen. The organization also received a $10,000 grant to build a community garden with 12 family lots.well. We want to get not just the kids but the parents to see its not complicated, its not difficult, she said, even if we just teach them more about purchasing certain foods organically. The garden will likely be installed this fall and 40 community volunteers will be needed for the project. For more information, visit www.girlsinc-pinel las.org.

Morton Plant Mease schedules August programsThe Bay Pines VA Healthcare System recently named Cory Price as assistant director. Price will oversee several services across the healthcare system, including logistics, nutrition and food service, police, prosthetics and sensory aids, and voluntary service. Price comes to Bay Pines with more than 15 years of federal government service. His most recent assignment was administrator for operations at the Orlando VA Medical Center. He started his career as a commissioned Medical Service Corps officer in the U.S. Army where he oversaw helicopter ambulance employment and operations for nearly 12 years. This experience included both domestic and international operations in the continental United States, Thailand, Germany, Kuwait and Iraq. In January 2009, Price left the military to pursue opportunities where he could continue to serve Veterans and their health care needs. He began his VA career at the Orlando VA Medical Center where he served as the administrative officer for radiology and later administrative officer for medicine prior to his most recent assignment. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of a team nationally recognized for health care quality, delivery and safety, said Price. As a veteran, and someone committed to the health and wellbeing of the brave men and women we serve, my goal is to build on the successes this organization has achieved and do my part to strengthen our world class healthcare system. The Bay Pines VAHCS is one of the nations leading VA healthcare systems, employing more than 3,800 medical professionals and support staff dedicated to providing the very best care to veterans residing in southwest Florida. The organization is the fourth busiest VA health care system in the country in terms of patients served and operates nine facilities.Bay Pines VA Healthcare System names assistant director
Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, July 10, 2014A visit to the library is the ultimate treasure hunt. If youve spent time in a great library, such as Largos, you know what I mean. Even if you exit the library empty-handed, you know you eventually will return and come across a book that will be so spellbinding that it leaves you with something maybe for the rest of your life. And all it costs you is time. Since I was a child, Ive wandered the aisles of libraries, large and small, whether doing research for a school term paper or just hoping to find a book to read at my leisure. Libraries have also helped keep me out of harms way, particularly when I was living in a dorm at the University of Florida. I found studying in my room to be difficult at times, because of noise in the hallways and the occasional intruders. So when it was time for me to study for a difficult final exam, I grabbed my books and notes and headed for the other side of the campus, to the west library, fifth floor, as far away as I could be from any wouldbe distractions on my dorm floor. Hidden among rows and rows of books, the desk where I sat served me well. I studied for hours, the only noise being the occasional faint sound of the Hare Krishnas pounding their drums on the Plaza of the Americas. Goes with the territory at a university. Years later, living in Kissimmee, I was a frequent visitor to the citys library, where I developed a love for screenwriter and author Larry McMurtry, famous for his novel Lonesome Dove and many other fine works of western fiction. The library was small so I often headed to the Orlando Public Library, which had four floors of unlimited books to my liking. Id go there in the evening hours, after work, and plop down in a cozy lounge chair to read. Once, I fell asleep for several minutes. That was a major violation of the rules. The hand of a librarian gently squeezing my shoulders awakened me. No sleeping in the library, the employee said. Forgot that the library doesnt have a snoring section. These days, I go to the Largo Public Library twice a month or more, usually on Saturdays. Its a bustling place. Patrons sifting through DVDs, mingling at the caf, pursuing the new books, eyeing computer screens, reading, seeking help from librarians, leading their kids into the childrens section or just staring out the windows. A friend of mine from Redington Beach loves the ambiance of the library; she used to drive there every weekend to find a quiet space to write novels. Opening the library on Sunday is a future budget milestone. Thats good, because libraries are also fine visitor information centers. While in the library bookstore, I overheard a conversation between one of the volunteers and a visitor to the library inquiring about this area. The volunteer was giving her advice on things to do that weekend, such as taking in a craft festival in Dunedin. No shortage of treasures at the bookstore, too, such as David McCulloughs Pulitzer Prize-winning Truman, that cost me only $5. The hardback, 1,120-page biography is a compelling chronicle of the life of Americas 33rd president and his relationships with his subordinates and other world leaders. I learned that the challenges facing Truman were immense, perhaps underplayed in history. Similarly, about a year ago, while moseying through the aisles of the library, I plucked a biography on Dwight Eisenhower by Stephen Ambrose from the shelf. The book convinced me that few of our countrys leaders, if any, surpassed Ike in character and courage in his time. Time again to go treasure hunting. The $21 million library opened in 2005. Some residents were critical of the proposed costs of the library during the planning stages for it. Fortunately, most city commissioners remained committed to building the new library. Today, the services and programs offered by the library and the traffic it generates is a clear testament to commissioners foresight. Now if they can only find a way to keep it open on Sundays.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email tger mond@TBNweekly.comThe latest developments in the Mideast have surprised that small remaining percentage of observers who mistakenly assumed that the Muslim religion was unified. That delusion portrayed Islam as a tight-knit, disciplined body of believers who regard Islam as the only true faith and all other religions as misguided assemblages of infidels, worthy only of contempt and ultimate extinction. But in the past few weeks we have learned (or re-learned) that Islam is just as fractured as Christianity. The two warring branches are the Sunnis and the Shiites, whose primary purpose is to kill one another, take control of Iraq, and then go on to conquer the world in the name of Allah (provided, we must assume, that Allah can be shown to be either a Sunni or a Shiite.) The argument between the two sects goes back to 632, when Islams founder, the prophet Muhammad, died. Leadership then went to a Sunni. But the Shiites felt their man should have been named boss. That started the feud. Today most Muslims are Sunnis. But Shiites dominate in a significant number of other countries. And guess whos trapped in between the two factions? Good old Uncle Sam. While were thinking of the Sunni vs. Shiite contest, lets take time to think about some of the other large and small rivalries that have enlivened our history books. PROTESTANTS vs. CATHOLICS. Both branches of Christianity venerate God and Christ, but the agreement pretty well stops there. The opposing armies no longer kill each other, but the skirmishing continues in the form of competitive fund-raising, recruitment and the number of church suppers. Within the Protestant wing, mutual contempt thrives between Episcopalians and Southern Baptists, Presbyterians and Unitarian Universalists, and (always) between those Christians who believe in praying quietly in their closets and those who glory in 10,000-member megachurches with TV evangelist clown-ministers ranting for hours on stage. HATFIELDS and MCCOYS. These two families on the Kentucky-West Virginia border began feuding at the close of the Civil War. Using shotguns, rifles and whatever other weapons seemed handy, they kept on sniping and ambushing each other for the next 30 years or so. Origins of the disputes ranged from Civil War loyalties to bootlegging and contested love affairs between members of the two clans. Books, songs and movies tell about these mountaineers, who finally made peace. Today they hold annual joint reunions attended by thousands of Americans, few of whom become violent in their support of either side in the ancient squabble. BOSTON RED SOX vs. the NEW YORK YANKEES. This may be the greatest rivalry in the world of sports. Both of these major league baseball teams have histories filled with glory, pride and disappointment. Some experts believe the competition began in earnest when, in 1919, the owner of the Red Sox sold slugger Babe Ruth to the Yankees. This began an 86-year stretch (nicknamed The Curse of the Bambino) in which the Red Sox failed to win a single World Series. Boston and New York fans have long been famous for the intensity of their devotion. Two of their outfielders Ted Williams of the Red Sox and Joe DiMaggio of the Yankees were perhaps the greatest players in baseball history. In a related rivalry of sorts, scholars of American speech argue about which urban accent New York (think of actor William Bendix) or Boston (think of the two mechanic brothers on Car Talk) grates most heavily on the ears of those unsophisticated Americans born or reared west of the Hudson River. LOS ANGELES vs. SAN FRANCISCO. Residents of California, when searching for a conversational topic, can always fall back on the age-old rivalry between the states two dominant cities. Persons who love L.A. will rave about its sunny and warm climate, the superior beaches, the many available theme parks, the stimulus of the movie and TV industries, and the relatively lower cost of living. Angelenos will complain about San Franciscos roller-coaster hills, its fog, and how the plutocratic digital techies have pushed rentals and other living essentials far above the reach of average working stiffs. S.F.s rebuttals will include the citys low incidence of 10-mile traffic jams and its high level of public transport. Both cities can claim excellent universities and architectural achievements. Professional sports teams? Dont even think of entering those discussions unless you have hours to squander, plus a doctorate in statistics. Like love, conflict makes the world go round. Without it, great novels and plays would not be written. Cable TV news could not exist without politicians and entire nations fighting with each other. Even so, I rejoice every time Im able to reach for my personal conflict button and switch it off for a while. Happiness consists of eliminating or reducing conflicts in our own lives while ignoring the hundreds of other brawls raging around us. Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

About the cartoonistGet answers on proposed utility taxEditor: The mayor and commissioners are trying to push a 10 percent utility tax on water and electricity on us, without our vote. In Pinellas County, there are 24 municipalities. We are the fifth highest millage In 2011 the firemen were willing to accept $659,000 for their pension. The city ended up paying more than $1.58 million, plus attorney fees two years later. A lot of residents are on fixed income. They are going for the highest amount, which is 10 percent on our utilities. I question what amount the utilities will charge the city of Belleair Bluffs for doing this? Residents, you must come to the meeting July 14, at 6 p.m. to get the answers to these questions. Barbara Nyberg Belleair BluffsResident opposed to utility taxEditor: I am going door to door, with my dog, Buddy, getting signatures from residents who are opposed to the utility tax. The two replies I get when I ask if they have heard about the utility tax are: I heard something or No, I am not aware of any utility tax. All of the residents I have talked to have been nice. This is a safe and beautiful city that overspent our taxpayer money on fighting the firefighter pension fund. At the last workshop, Debra Sullivan made the statement there arent that many Belleair Bluffs residents on fixed incomes. I dont know where she got her information, but there are quite a few residents on fixed or low incomes and, we are in one of the worse recessions ever. I was just laid off from my job of eight years so people are still suffering job losses, income losses, higher food prices, gas at an all time high for the longest period of time and more. I will be in attendance at the July 14 workshop meeting at 6 p.m. as I am not fighting just for myself, but for the residents of Belleair Bluffs. JoAnne Reinhart Belleair BluffsFear mongers abuse concept of global warmingEditor: A response to Bob Drivers column on grandparents and global warming, I, too, am a grandparent and very concerned about the world my grandchildren will inherit. However, my concerns are not due to global warming but to the fear mongers who abuse the concept of global warming. It seems Mr. Driver has been sucked into the hype and has failed to educate himself on the other side of the story. In reality, science does not support all the rhetoric about global warming. What he really needs to be concerned about is the environmentalists indifference to and incompatibility with democracy and individual liberty. The environmentalists have turned a blind eye to exploring any view that does not support their theory. They are not seeking truth; they are seeking political advantage that steam rolls anything in its path. Sadly, democracy and individual liberty are in the way. If Mr. Driver and those like him continue to sign onto the conventional alarmist version of global warming and fail to seek the whole truth bringing science and reason to the table, our grandchildrens concern will not be that their homes are no longer on the coastline. They will be asking why their grandparents did not do something to stop the erosion of democracy and preserve their constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Mr. Driver, I know it is not politically correct but may I encourage you to use your Drivers Seat to take you to the other side of the question and get the whole story. The (environmentalist) emperor really does have no clothes. Rita Hopper LargoKudos for fireworks showEditor: Thank you, Madeira Beach for the best fireworks ever. Enjoyed them very much. What a treat! Proud to be a Madeira Beach resident and proud to live in the U.S.A. Loretta Somogyi Madeira BeachWhere have they gone?Editor: Has anyone else noticed the absence of birds at Taylor Lake this year? There were no baby ducks and only five baby moorhens this spring with decreasing numbers of egrets and herons. No wood storks, no roseate spoonbills visit like they did in the past. The owls and woodpeckers seem to have moved on. I havent seen a rabbit in years. The lake is low and swampy in appearance. Anyone who has read Rachael Carsons book Silent Spring should be concerned. I know I am. Barbara Hellebrand Largo

Tux, this months Pet Photo of the Month winners. These 1-year-old brothers and their father live with their human, Aspacia Becatoros and two other kitty siblings in Largo. Pictured are Mr. B.W. Tux cuddling with Socrates and also Aristotle making himself at home for a nap. Mr. B.W. Tux, was an unneutered feral cat that Becatoros had helped for about a year. He showed pregnant Mamma Mia where to get food at Becatoross house, and with much patience, grew to trust this human. The kittens that survived were Socrates and Aristotle. Save Our Strays helped catch the kitty family and spay and neuter all of them. By then, Mamma Mia was tame, and the kittens loved interacting with Becatoros. Sadly, Mamma Mia later died, but Becatoros adopted Aristotle, Socrates and their dad. Aristotle was the first to come in the house and meet Becatoross Siamese, Adorinda. When Aristotle walked inside, he immediately went over to her toy box, helped himself to a rubber ball and batted it around. Soon he came by to spend the night, and after several weeks, his brother worked up the nerve to come inside, too. After a few months, Mr. B.W. Tux came inside, too, and now rarely wants to go outside except to take walks with Becatoros. He took over the mothering duties and is extremely protective of his kids. As winners, they have won a $25 gift certificate to Largo Feed and Garden Supply in either Largo or Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

Not only do we worry for ourselves, but also for our family pets. If the weather is not safe for us, it is not safe for our furry family members either. Where can my pets and I go in the case of a hurricane evacuation? Unfortunately, most emergency shelters do not allow pets, due to risk of people being allergic or bitten, and pets fighting, and even lack of room or facilities. Check with your local emergency management officials to see if exceptions are made for service pets. It is recommended to research pet friendly hotels in neighboring counties and states that will be on your evacuation route. Make sure to ask if they have any breed or weight/size restrictions, and if so, if these are waived during an evacuation. Print this list and place it in your vehicle or with other important pet documents. What types of supplies should I pack for my pet if we evacuate? Have appropriate supplies that are easily accessible so you dont have to rearrange things to get to them in an emergency. A carrier is a necessary item, for both cats and dogs. Go ahead and label it, ideally with something waterproof. Try to bring your pets bed, blanket, or toy so that there is something calming and familiar to them.Having plastic or stainless steel food and water bowls, as well as enough food to last a week at minimum is advised. Dry food has advantages over canned food, such as not needing to keep food cool and tightly sealed, not worrying about having a can opener, etc. However canned food, as with canned goods for people, is obviously waterproof, and if you have multiple pets, there really wont be leftovers to refrigerate. Bottled water for you and your pets is also necessary. Be sure to take at least one gallon per pet per day when traveling or staying home. It is recommended to take some water with you, as hurricanes can be unpredictable and traffic can be bad. Therefore, you may need it in the car before reaching the hotel. Pack current vaccine records with you and your pets rabies certificates, microchip numbers, recent photo, medication instructions, etc. If your pet is on medication that requires refrigeration, such as insulin, pack a cooler and contact local emergency organizations such as the Red Cross for ice. Place all-important documents in a waterproof container or bag. Take additional leashes and collars and have them ready for when you take your pet in and out of the carrier. Try to do that in a safe, secure environment, especially when dealing with cats. If traveling far with your cat, the goal is to have a carrier big enough to fit a small litter box, bowls, and still have room for the cat to lie down. Should I get my pet microchipped, just in case? Yes! Living in Florida my entire life with pets, I strongly advise having your pet microchipped, regardless of if you are in an evacuation zone. Many pets can be displaced from their families during flooding or tornadoes. Whether traveling from an evacuation zone or staying in your home, pets can escape or lose their collar. A microchip will provide them some form of identification for people to locate you. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and goes underneath the skin between the shoulder blades.

Portofino at Indian Rocks continues renovations LARGO Portofino at Indian Rocks, 13300 Walsingham Road, is continuing its renovation plans by upgrading the entire condo property with a fresh new look. Waterstone Capital Largo LLC is the owner of the majority of units at Portofino of Indian Rocks. Eli Dadon, Waterstone manager, feels that the outdoor areas of the property deserve as much attention to detail as the interiors of the units. Changing the outside appearance to a Miami-style landscaping gives the property a relaxed and upscale look both indicative of Florida living, he said in a press release. David Swingle of Swingle Landscaping is in the process of upgrading and replacing the current landscaping. Texture-rich plants are being used throughout the property to compliment typical Florida plants that can withstand our warm and wet climate. Plans are in place to not only enhance the areas around the units, but to also compliment the walkways leading to the outdoor amenities such as the pools, tennis court and soon to come picnic areas. Well-designed and planned landscaping compliments the entire property, Dadon said. Our goal is to create an inviting atmosphere with enhanced curb appeal. Waterstone Capital Largo LLC purchased the majority of the property in November 2013. The companys intent is to upgrade the appearance and renovate the condos with state-of-the-art amenities. Landscaping is just one of the many areas of renovation currently taking place.Matton wins awardPINELLAS PARK The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association presented the 2014 State Quality Dealer Degree of Excellence Award to Paul Matton on June 26.

AlmaFormer St. Petersburg dining destination opens at Johns Pass By BOB McCLUREMADEIRA BEACH A former anchor restaurant in downtown St. Petersburg will open under a new name this week at Johns Pass Village. Scott and Thorn Vogel, the owners of the former Caf Alma, are opening Alma on the second floor at 111 Boardwalk Place. Alma will feature a VIP private dining room with seating for up to 50 guests and dining accommodations for up to 300. In addition to bringing the restaurants core tapas menu to Johns Pass, Alma also will feature locally caught day boat fish, Seminole Pride Angus Beef, Florida wild caught catfish and shrimp and other seasonal, local fare. Scott Vogel said he hopes to attract both tourists and local diners who go to the Salt Rock Grill in Indian Shores and Loews Don CeSar Hotel in St. Pete Beach. The new restaurant will occupy the entire second floor of the building, which also features some residential units on the third floor. The move marks the first downtown St. Petersburg dining establishment to expand operations in the Johns Pass tourist district. After 12 years of successful operation at 260 First Ave. S., Caf Alma served its final diners on June 29. The move became necessary when the restaurants rental property was sold a year ago and the new owner expressed an interest in doubling the rent. In March, David Kramer of Pridgen Realty brokered a sale of the Johns Pass Village building to Boardwalk Place LLC of Clearwater for $1.675 million. The deal included a long-term lease with the Vogel brothers and another commercial lease with Yogurt City, making the building 100 percent tenant occupied. When we first began serving diners in downtown St. Petersburg, there were only 30 other restaurants in the area, said Scott Vogel, president of Alma. Today, there are more than 100 restaurants in the downtown entertainment district. David Kramer opened our eyes to the massive business potential Johns Pass has to offer. Alma will join other dining establishments at Johns Pass, such as Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Hooters, the Friendly Fisherman Seafood Restaurant and Hubs Oyster Bar and Tavern.Photo courtesy of HEATHER GRZELKAAlma, a former St. Petersburg tapas restaurant, opens this week at 111 Boardwalk Place in Johns Pass Village.

Spider-Man and Wonder Woman are nearby, waiting for their next adventures. These and other comic book heroes take center stage at an exhibit that runs through Sept. 15 at the Dunedin Historical Museum. In recent weeks, visitors to the museum have learned about the evolution of comic books as well as donning the costumes of super heroes. Its definitely been an attraction to all families, said museum Director Vinnie Luisi. We have a little bit of everything. We have the interactive area, where mom and dad will dress up with the kids. We have Superwoman, Superman, Batman and we even have the criminal costume. Visitors can dress up as a robber, but if they get caught Gotham City police will arrest them. Comic books, sketches, costumes, collectible figures, and other comic memorabilia are on display, including the work of acclaimed artists, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, seasonal residents of the area, who have done work for Marvel Comics and similar companies. This is some of their artwork. Quite rare. You dont find these everywhere. We wanted to show that your next door neighbor who you dont know is a wellknown artist. They go over to these conventions, the comic cons. People stand in line for hours just waiting for their autographs, Luisi said. Tarzan, Nancy, Little Orphan Annie, Dick Tracy, Green Lantern, the Avengers and other icons of the eras of comics fill display cases in the exhibit, which includes something for everybody, Luisi said. During World War II, comic book series were published that catered to the soldiers. Photo by TOM GERMONDThe evolution of comic books is featured in an interactive exhibit at the Dunedin Historical Museum. Shown by a display case is museum Director Vinnie Luisi.Even in war there was a purpose for comics, to keep morale up, Luisi said. Comics: the Superpowered History is also designed to show how comics have risen to a dominant position in mainstream media. The exhibit takes in comics early origins in the 15th century to their influence on pop culture. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $2; children 7 and under are admitted free. Call 7361176. The staff and friends have had fun promoting the exhibit, such as arranging the first Dunedin Museum Superheroes Pub Crawl. You should have seen it as the 40 of us going from one pub to the next pub through town, Luisi said. The stares we got as everybody is walking from bar to the next bar with 40 super heroes lined up. In establishing the exhibit, the staff was looking at something to bring in during the summer that would attract a younger audience and family members, Luisi said. So we started contacting some of the local artists and we thought what a great combination of comic book history. We know that they go to the comic cons all over the United States. There really hasnt been a collection of this magnitude put together anywhere in Pinellas County. At a glance:What: Comics: the Superpowered History.

Family brings Culvers franchise, philosophy to Largo By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Parrish and Alicia Sandefur have never run a restaurant before. In a bold new start last year, they sold their lake house in Wisconsin, moved with their two teenagers to Pinellas County and invested $3.2 million of their own money to purchase the property at 3500 E. Bay Drive in Largo and turn it into Culvers. The realization of their efforts opens Monday, July 14. Its the seventh location in Florida so far for the franchise, which is known for its frozen custard and Butter Burgers. But its a lot more than just that, Alicia Sandefur explained. Culvers has such a wonderful feeling. Alicia sat in the Dunkin Donuts across West Bay Drive from the restaurant as a construction crew paved the driveway June 25. Her friendly smile and open demeanor, along with a bag of plastic coins granting free scoops of frozen custard, prompted more than one conversation with customers eager for the opening of the new restaurant. Ill be there opening day, said one such future customer, Colleen Noyes of Clearwater. Ill be there every day. Noyes said her friend from Wisconsin spoke highly of the restaurant. She and her friends live close by and were looking forward to making the place a frequent stop. We have a group. Were all going to be over there, she said. Alicia said she hoped that such gatherings will flourish in the good family feel of Culvers. Youll have people that come in every day, every couple of days. You get to know them by name, she said, explaining that the philosophy starts at the top, with CEO, whom shes come to know by name. Craig Culver has a way about that. He wants it to be like youre welcoming somebody into your home. The Sandefurs are an extension of the family-centered model, though the restaurant business is a new experience for them. Until recently, Parrish Sandefur was an executive at Briggs & Stratton, often traveling internationally to help set up and oversee engine-manufacturing plants. When the company offered to buy out his contract, Parrish had a chance to consider what else he might want to do with his life. The Sanderfurs, who met at a high school in Michigan, didnt encounter the Culvers brand until the 1990s, after they moved to Wisconsin and were married. Theres one on every corner in every neighborhood in Wisconsin, Alicia explained. My husband just absolutely fell in love with it. Parrish even wrote a small business plan based on the concept of Culvers while he was earning his MBA. But he had a good job at Briggs & Stratton, one that he might have kept until retirement. The buy-out offer gave him a new opportunity. I knew his back of the mind had always thought about this Culvers thing, his wife explained. When youre in a corporate environment, you dont really even give yourself a chance to explore that, because youre so busy. The couple wanted to retire in Florida and found out that the company had decided to open new franchises in the Florida market. They wanted to include their children in the decision. Evan, now 17, was still in high school and Leah, now 19, was graduating and planned to go to college in Wisconsin. We had a family meeting. We just decided, yep, were going to move our whole family down here to Florida, Alicia said. It was a big adjustment. Leah decided instead to follow her parents south and attend the University of Central Florida. Despite his mothers worry, Evan has flourished at Shorecrest Preparatory School. The move has been only part of the process. There were various stages of testing and training before Parrish was approved as a Culvers franchise owner, including 16 weeks training at the corporate headquarters in Sauk City, Wisconsin. But at every step of the way, the Sandefurs got a green light to keep moving forward. The lake house sold quickly. Culvers approved of the couples background and financials. It was all falling into place. I guess if one of those things wouldnt have worked, this wouldnt have worked. Were a working family; we didnt necessarily have the money, Alicia said. Who would have ever thought? The family moved to Florida last August. They rented a townhouse in Clearwater Beach and began the process of looking for a suitable restaurant property in the area. They needed enough land to support 52 parking spaces because drive-through customers park and wait with a number on the dashboard for their food to be prepared fresh and delivered to their car. They considered property on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard, a plot near Bay Pines and another on Ulmerton Road before they settled on the site of the former Farmers Kitchen on East Bay Drive. The building was demolished and rebuilt to the exact specifications of a medium-sized Culvers model the Sandefurs chose. As construction continued, the Sandefurs hired 72 part-time and full-time employees to work at the new restaurant. The managers are already trained and working in Port Charlotte, where the first Culvers in Florida was built and opened. Parrish has been working alongside his employees, whom hes paying to work despite construction delays at his own franchise. The Sandefurs will begin training the rest of the their crew on site starting July 7. Then, they will open the restaurant for a family day, inviting only employees and their families to a welcoming party on July 12. The restaurant is set to open to the public July 14. Alicia said she knows that there are several residents from Wisconsin and the Midwest who are excited for the opening. Many wave her down when they see the Culvers logo on her vehicle or white polo shirt and ask for an update. When you believe in a product, and see how excited it makes people, it makes all this construction worry overshadowed, she said. Alicia said Culvers has a policy of hiring inclusively. Shes looking forward to reaching out to senior communities and asking residents if theyd like to work for just a few hours a day, filling coffee and chatting with customers. One of her current hires is an 18 year old with Downs syndrome. His mom called me and said, I saw Culvers is coming and I know Culvers hired people with disability, Alicia said. You give everybody a chance to work. She said she cant wait until the community understands and embraces Culvers family-friendly philosophy. She wants the place to be welcoming like a similar franchise was to her daughters cheerleading squad, whose owner kept the place open late so the squad could gather after games. Shes ready for customers to come in just for the custard flavor of the day. She is excited to welcome them into the homey dining room that is a big part of the restaurant. Its not like any other fast food, she said. Eventually, the Sandefurs hope to expand and open more than one Culvers in Pinellas County. The company allows a couple to open as many as five total, but emphasize that expansion should be very controlled. They want the owner to be very present, Alicia explained. My husband will be working in that restaurant, overseeing everything for a very, very long time, till you feel very comfortable that you have a wonderful (general manager). And then well probably start our second. But so far, the Sandefurs are absorbing the many life changes that have come with opening their first restaurant over the past year, which coincides with their 25th wedding anniversary. This is a big year for us, Alicia said. I cant tell you enough how happy I am, how proud I am to be a part of this company. Pinellas Countys first Culvers, at 3500 E. Bay Drive, will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. starting July 14. A Culvers in Tampa, to be opened by different franchise owners, also is in the works.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Begin AgainGenre: Romance Cast: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld, Adam Levine, Catherine Keener and Cee Lo Green Director: John Carney Rated: R The latest film from writer-director John Carney, Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his newfound fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.A Long Way DownGenre: Drama Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots, Aaron Paul, Rosamund Pike, Sam Neill and Tuppence Middleton Director: Pascal Chaumeil Rated: R Based on the acclaimed novel by NickOpening this weekend Begin Again features Knightley, Ruffalo; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens Photo courtesy of THE WEINSTEIN COMPANYKeira Knightley and Adam Levine star in Begin Again.

Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Masons parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before.

The Fray set to playDenver-based piano-driven pop-rock quartet is touring in support of new albumCLEARWATER Celebrating the release of Helios, The Fray is in the midst of a nationwide tour. The Fray will perform Monday, July 21, 7 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road. Tickets start at $43.25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Helios, the bands fourth album, was released in February to widespread critical acclaim. Billboard named it one of the most highly anticipated releases of the season describing the band as more aggressive and more optimistic than ever before. The lead single Love Dont Die, produced by Ryan Tedder premiered on the Today Show followed by performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Dick Clarks New Years Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014, and a special performance on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! The Frays lineup features Isaac Slade on vocals and piano, Joe King on guitar and vocals, Dave Welsh on guitar, and Ben Wysocki on drums. According to a press release from Sacks & Co promoting the tour, the Denver-based group formed in 2002 after high school friends Slade and King bumped into each other at a local guitar shop. The Fray achieved national success with their 2005 debut featuring the hit singles Over My Head (Cable Car) and How to Save a Life, which went double-platinum. The band also earned a 2010 Grammy nomination for their self-titled release. That album featured the singles You Found Me and Never Say Never. The Frays next album, Scars & Stories, hit the shelves in February 2012. The album debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 charts. The lead single, Heartbeat, was inspired by Slades experiences traveling abroad. The band followed Heartbeat with a second single from the album, Run for Your Life. Following the success of the lead single Love Dont Die off of the new album Helios, The Frays latest track off the new record is Break Your Plans. We wanted to capture the moment right before a couple parts ways, where everything is pointing to the split, and one of them suddenly gets this fire almost out of nowhere, Slade said, talking about how the band conceived of the single. Maybe its the feeling of the other just starting to leave, maybe its a moment-in-time but suddenly theres fight left, and they go for it. Stuart Price who has worked with artists such as The Killers, Madonna and Keane produced Helios, released on Epic Records. Working with Stuart was the best of both worlds, Slade said in a band biography provided by Paradigm Talent Agency. We brought our organic instruments, and he brought his arsenal of electronic antiques. This record is all about running to the front lines of what weve done and pushing our borders even farther. Electronic instruments, drum samples, enormous backing vocals, opening up our writing to folks outside our camp. The same month Helios was released, The Fray performed alongside the Russian art collective Pussy Riot as part of Amnesty Internationals Bring Human Rights Home show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. To me, [Pussy Riot] made me realize how apathetic I can get as an American, King said. You can get real critical or not do anything about what you think should change and just let things happen. Theyre doing the opposite. Theyre going public ... Its inspiring to see that. I think that, if anything, it motivates. It should motivate people to do something.

Formed in 2002 by schoolmates Issac (Slade) and Joe King, The Fray achieved success with the release of their debut album, How To Save A Life in 2005, which was certified double platinum in the United States and platinum in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK.

Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles including I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Lodi, Susie Q, Wholl Stop the Rain, Travelin Band, Fortunate Son, Down On The Corner, Bad Moon Rising and Proud Mary. Anything but a cover band, like a symphony orchestra performing the works of Mozart, Classic Albums Live forgoes the gimmickry of costumes and impersonations, putting the music first. These world-class musicians tackle iconic music, concentrating solely on re-creating it faithfully from the original recording.

Critical applause also came from all corners, with Entertainment Weekly officially declaring UTS13 to be the coolest tour of the summer. Crosby, Stills & Nash, Saturday, Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $54.75. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. On the heels of their sold out March 2014 tour, Crosby, Stills & Nash have announced additional U.S. summer tour dates which includes a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall.

More than four decades since CSN first harmonized in Laurel Canyon, and played its first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, its members continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music. David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies, respectively. They are also in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, honored both for CSN as a group, and as individual solo artists.

McDonald and the members of Toto are old friends, dating back years prior to the singers appearance on Totos Ill Be Over You, from the Fahrenheit album in 1986. Toto members Mike Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro and Steve Lukather collaborate with McDonald on his RIAA gold certified solo debut If Thats What It Takes (1982). The trio all performed on Thats Why and No Such Luck, while Jeff laid down the drums and Luke contributed guitar on I Keep Forgettin. Lukather also played on I Gotta Try and Believe In It. In 1977, Keyboardist David Paich arranged horns and strings on the Doobie Brothers Livin on theFault Line. Even earlier, in 1972, Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro extended the invitation to McDonald to join Steely Dan. McDonald belongs to an elite group of blue-eyed soul vocalists Van Morrison, Rod Stewart, Daryl Hall whose sound is recognizable after a mere two notes. Much like the members of Toto, McDonald was a sought after session player in Los Angeles in the 1970s. Aside from his hits with The Doobies as well as a solo artist, McDonald lent his voice to records by an A-Z of artists, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill, Grizzly Bear and Holy Ghost. Meanwhile, his solo career in the 1980s and 1990s zoomed from success to success on the wings of evergreen hits like I Keep Forgettin, Sweet Freedom, On My Own (a duet with Patti LaBelle) and the Grammy-winning duet with James Ingram Yah Mo Be There. Few ensembles in the history of recorded music have individually or collectively had a larger imprint on pop culture than the members of Toto. As individuals, the band members can be heard on an astonishing 5,000 albums that together amass a sales history of half a billion albums. Amongst these recordings, NARAS applauded the performances with more than 200 Grammy nominations. With more than 35 years together and thousands of credits and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top-selling tours and recording acts in the world.Gulfport Artist reception, Saturday, July 19, 6 to 10 p.m., at Domain Home Accessories & Gallery, 3129 Beach Blvd. S., Gulfport.
