Developers present Seminole Mall vision By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE For nearly two years, city officials, business owners and residents have wondered what Seminole Malls new owners had in store for the former retail hub. Even before the new owners, North American Development Group, came on board, for years the future of the declining mall, located at the high-traffic intersection of 113th Street and Park Boulevard, has been a giant question mark for the city. NADG, which bought the blighted mall at the end of 2012, and Tampa-based Primerica Group One/Primerica Development, which NADG teamed up with for maintenance, management and redevelopment of the site, finally shared their vision for the property at the July 22 City Council meeting. They plan to transform the rundown retail location into Seminole City Center, a shopping, entertainment and dining destination for the region. And the best way to ensure the successful completion of this major redevelopment project is through a public-private partnership, said Richard Trzcinski, Primericas president. He assured the council that he wouldnt put city or county residents at risk with the deal. No money would be required from Seminole up front, but would instead come later in the form of tax rebates, he said. The project would also require cooperation from the county, he added. Other funding possibilities include Penny for Pinellas money, community grants, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority participation, utility taxes and franchise fees. Trzcinski nodded to past Primerica projects that utilized similar successful partnerships The Mall at Millenia in Orlando, The Estuary in Brandon and The Village at Gulfstream in Hallandale Beach. Weve seen the way public-private partnership works to make things happen, he said. I think we absolutely need to proceed together. Seminole Mall is an unusual redevelopment project because its a focal point of the city and its residents, said Dale Johnson, Primericas director of Features Business . . . . . . . . . .10A Classieds . . . . . . . . .7-9B County . . . . . . . . . . .5-6A Entertainment . . . . . .1-6, 10B Faith & family . . . . . . . .12A Health & tness . . . . . . . .14A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Police . . . . . . . . . . . .8A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .9A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Sports . . . . . . . . . . . .7A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising INSIDE See MALL, page 4ACounty OKs tentative millage rates Seminoles rates to remain unchanged at 1.9581 ...

The group sits in the same spot every day at a table at the center of the mall, right in front of Stein Mart. Sometimes there are just a handful of them; sometimes their numbers swell to more than a dozen. Its just someplace to sit, he said. You dont have to buy anything, and we can catch up on things, talk about life, what were going to eat that night. But as much as the Seminole Mall has been a home away from home for Swart and his friends, he said its time for something new. [The developers plans] are the greatest thing Ive ever heard, he said. They need to tear down this dinosaur. And he isnt worried about his group being displaced at the planned outdoor Seminole City Center. Well just sit outside, he said. In the 10-plus years since he and his friends have been gathering at the mall, theyve seen its significant decline, he said. Many retailers have left the mall and many shops remain shuttered. These days, the air conditioning doesnt even work properly, he said. Its time for something new, he said, and something upscale that will attract a higher class of shoppers. Stan Monte of Largo, who has been a regular walker at the mall since he moved to the area in 1984, agrees. I like the new plan, he said. I think its great. Im looking forward to it. Hes especially excited about the mall becoming an outdoor shopping center and hopes it will be similar to Largo Mall. Its so convenient, he added. It has just about everything. Other mall regulars have mixed feelings about the plans. Jennifer Trowbridge lives within walking distance of the mall and stops by the CVS or Bealls at least once a week. Shes heard the new mall might be more upscale, but hopes the end result will have more affordable offerings, maybe a consignment shop or caf similar to Tellys, a mall restaurant that shut its doors this past spring. She also wishes the malls structure could be saved. Its beautiful in here, she said. Its worth refurbishing and keeping the mall indoors. She added, Something needs to be done. Im excited about something new, but sad to see the mall go Its heartbreaking.Photo by BOB MCCLURE2014 mail ballots begin arriving at Elections Office By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County voters have a number of decisions to make by Election Day Aug. 26, and more than 6,000 have already cast their ballot, according to statistics reported by the Elections Office Friday, July 25. Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark mailed 244,826 ballots to domestic votersJuly 22. An additional 2,657 were mailed to absent military and overseas voters July 9. As of July 25, 248,048 mail ballots had been distributed, and 2.5 percent had been returned to an Elections Office. Of the 6,227 returned, 42 percent were from registered Republicans and 41 percent were from Democrats. The remaining were from those registered as other.Check your mail ballot statusClark sent out a press release July 22 requesting that voters confirm ballot requests due to a recent mailing from the Voter Participation Center, a national nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. As of July 22, the Elections Office had received more than 1,300 mail ballot requests from voters responding to that mailing. The problem is that 87 percent of the voters already have ballot requests on file, Clark said. The organizations mailer also generated 125 phone calls through July 22, of which all but five were from voters who already had requested mail ballots.Plantamura addresses censure By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE During the July 22 City Council meeting, Councilor Patricia Plantamura addressed the councils 6-1 censure vote against her at the July 8 meeting. Plantamura called the act of censure a theatrical distraction from questions shes asked City Manager Frank Edmunds that have gone unanswered. She said she sent Edmunds three letters in June and July. Edmunds has yet to respond, she said. I am guilty of one thing, she said, asking questions and expecting answers. Mayor Leslie Waters said some of the questions in these letters have been addressed and that if Edmunds felt they needed further Photo courtesy of ELECTIONS OFFICEWorkers load a truck July 22 with 244,826 mail ballots sent out to domestic voters. See BALLOTS, page 5ACounts wont run for re-election By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Councilor John Counts, who has served on the City Council for over a decade, has decided he wont run for re-election this fall. He announced his decision at the July 22 council meeting. Counts, a regional sales manager at BB&T bank, said his daughter plays competitive softball, which takes up a lot of his free time. He first ran for City Council 12 years ago, and was unsuccessful in his bid two times in a row.

Workers making summertime upgrades to the school were excavating with a backhoe and cut open an unmarked 1-inch gas line that supplied the schools cafeteria. The open gas line discharged highly flammable natural gas into the area behind the cafeteria. SHS staff evacuated 80 students and teachers that were on campus for the Summer Bridge Program.

Enclosed malls like Seminole Mall are dinosaurs in the market. She ticked down a list of issues with the mall in its current state, including lack of tenancy and obsolete buildings. It just cries to be redone, she said. As retail changes, so do the needs of Seminole shoppers, Trzcinski said. With growing reliance on the Internet, soft goods can easily be gotten and brought to your door, he said. We have to create something thats a destination where people want to travel to, whether its from the beaches, Tampa or beyond. We have to create a sense of space that is exciting. The plan for Seminole City Center calls for razing the indoor mall and replacing it with a modern design that includes a 12-screen movie theater, restaurants, retail stores and a bank. No specific tenants have been named, though two of the remaining tenants, Bealls and Stein Mart, have expressed an interest in being part of the redeveloped shopping center, Trzcinski said. The redevelopment is projected to significantly increase real property taxes and sales taxes over the current site, Trzcinski said. An increase of $32.35 million in taxable real property value is expected with an additional $586,324 in tax revenue. The project also will create 725 permanent jobs, in addition to 244 indirect jobs and 629 temporary jobs during construction. This is big stuff, Trzcinski said. Its very, very exciting to me. City Manager Frank Edmunds said the council would need to discuss the possibility of entering into a development agreement with NADG and Primerica at a workshop in the near future and then bring the final proposal to a future council meeting for public comment. The city has entered into similar agreements with developers before, he said, but Seminole City Center would be of a much larger scale and have a greater impact on the city. [Seminole Mall] is the epicenter of our city, said Mayor Leslie Waters, and probably the only question that we get when were out in the city. Councilor Chris Burke said hed refrain from commenting on the project until he learned more about what is expected financially from the city. Before I trade the cow for the beans, I want to know how much the beans cost, he said. Councilor John Counts, however, enthusiastically supported the project, though he said he doesnt see it becoming a final destination spot for the region. Still, he expects it to have a large draw in the greater Seminole area. Its a phenomenal proposal and I support it 100 percent, he said. Seminole Mall first opened in 1965, initially anchored by Publix, which later moved across the street. None of the original tenants are left, Johnson said. The mall saw its heyday in the 1980s, though the propertys assessed value fluctuated over the years, she said. The propertys value saw its peak in 2008, at the height of the real estate boom. Its now at its all-time low, worth around $16 mi llion, she said.

Mayor Leslie Waters said, Were going to miss you. Its been 10 great years. Youve served under three mayors, I believe. Were going to miss your institutional knowledge of whats gone on before. It wont be quite the same without you down there at the end of the dais. Counts added that hell be interested to see who decides to run for his seat I put my full support behind anybody who shares my passion for the city and my passion for free enterprise for business within city of Seminole, he said. Two seats are up for grabs this election season the one held by Counts, and Councilor Bob Matthews seat. Matthews has served on the City Council since 1980. The council members, who will serve three-year terms, will be decided upon on the Nov. 4 ballot. Candidate filing began July 29 and ends Monday, Aug. 11, 4 p.m. Each candidate must obtain a qualification packet or a qualification CD from the city clerk. They must file all necessary documents, as provided by the city clerk, during the qualifying period. If filing a petition and fee, documents to be submitted should include: 40 petition cards signed by qualified city electors, a qualifying fee of $15 and a State Election Assessment fee of $55.62. If candidates are paying the fee only, they must pay a $100 qualifying fee in addition to the State Election Assessment fee. Fees must be made payable with a check from a campaign account. Candidates must be a registered voter and resident of the city of Seminole for one year prior to qualifying. Compensation for councilors is $5,562 annually. Rose Benoit, city clerk, can be contacted at 3910204, ext. 102 or COUNTS, from page 1A REACTION, from page 1A PLANTAMURA, from page 1AStein Mart employee Red Donarum said his store is excited to be a part of the malls future. But he also wishes it would remain an indoor shopping center. Its better for business, he said. At an outdoor mall, shops dont share business with each other as much since customers can drive up to the store of their choice and arent forced to walk past the other retailers. But its great that something is finally being done, he said. And nobody is more excited about this than former Mayor Jimmy Johnson. The most often question asked in Seminole is: what about the mall? he said. Now we know about the mall. He added, The plans are absolutely beautiful There is excitement in the area. People are very happy. This is just the beginning. St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Provost Dr. James Olliver is also excited. Since it is literally right down the street from us, we see it as offering a variety of entertainment, shopping, restaurants and other destinations that will appeal to faculty, staff and students, he said. SPC-Seminole is growing rapidly (with registrations for the fall term currently up nearly 17 percent over a year ago), and we look forward to partnering with the mall, the city and the Chamber of Commerce in being part of a renaissance of sorts in our community improving both the quantity of services and quality of life. Now that the plan has been made public, the city and the malls developers need to think about where the money to fund the project will come from, Johnson said. Thats the big question, he said. For now, were just going to have to wait and see what the [City] Council does with it and where funding will come from, said Roger Edelman, president of the Seminole. Thats going to be the biggest issue. consideration he should bring them before the City Council at its next meeting. At the July 8 meeting, she motioned that Edwards should bring to the council current or future requests for information that he deems not in the best interest and/or necessary and/or beneficial to the city. This motion passed 6. Plantamura also addressed a comment Coun cilor Chris Burke made during his motion to cen sure her regarding her leaving meetings early. She said shes only left one meeting early a May 27 workshop and that was because Mayor Leslie Waters wanted to discuss an agenda item from a prior meeting, she said, which, she alleges, is in vi olation of the Florida Sunshine Law. She has also previously expressed concerns that the censure was a coordinated effort, which is in violation of the Sunshine Law, because several councilors had prepared statements at the July 8 meeting. Yes, madam, we did have prepped statements and they were called motions and each of you have received a copy of that prepared motion, Waters said. She said that her statement and motion regarding information requests dealt with a completely different matter than Burkes motion to censure Plantamura. She added, Its not unusual for council members to read from prepared statements, which can lend to the accuracy of meeting minutes. Vice Mayor Thom Barnhorn said he read from a partially prepared statement at the July 8 meeting, but it had been written seven weeks prior during the Charter Review sessions and was not coordinated with any other councilor. Plantamura also alleged that the council has breached parliamentary procedure. According to the city ordinance, the council must abide by Roberts Rules of Order during meetings, she said. These rules call for the chair to be impartial and impersonal, she said, and for speakers to courteously address their remarks to chair. It also disallows attack and questioning of other members motives. It would do well for all of our council members, and certainly our presider, [Mayor Waters,] to familiarize herself with proper parliamentary procedure, Plantamura said. If she sees any breaches of the rules in the future, she will be filing charges to enforce the ordinance. I dont appreciate being trained by a colleague, Mayor Waters said. I appreciate your comments and opinions and thats exactly what they are, opinions. She said shed consult with City Attorney John Elias, who wasnt in attendance at the July 22 meeting, on the matter. We have a lawyer who sits with us at every council meeting, Mayor Waters said. Hes the one that monitors our parliamentary procedure. He monitors the Sunshine Law and he monitors any breach of law. He represents all of us on council Hes the expert. Im going to give this over to him. Earlier in the meeting, Plantamura also protested a 10 percent merit-based pay adjustment for City Manager Frank Edmunds, though the motion eventually passed 6-1. Plantamura noted that the 2014 budget delineated minimum and maximum pay rates for the city manager role $89,000 and $131,083 respectively. Ten percent of $128,000, which I believe was in the last budget for the Seminole city managers pay would take this well over the $131,000 cap on the city manager, she said, starting a dangerous precedent. Other employees who are at the top of their pay grade might have similar requests in the future. We cant do for some and not do for others, she said. She added, I am a fiscal conservative and so I think paying more than the top of the pay scale for any employee, especially an employee that I understand is leaving our city, this seems like a financially irresponsible decision to make. What it comes down to is semantics, said Councilor John Counts. Vice Mayor Thom Barnhorn said the 10 percent merit pay doesnt affect Edmunds salary. When this was brought forward it was not brought forward as an adjustment to the salary, he said. Its a lump sum merit [award.] This was not to be attached as part of his salary, and not to be repeated in the future. Edmunds hasnt received a bonus since 2006, said Councilor Jim Quinn and deserves the one-time lump sum. He listed some of the many projects Edmunds has worked on since joining the city in 1993: construction of the new recreation center, Tennis Courts Park, City Hall Park, the Seminole Mall project, the Bay Pines development, a drainage master plan, the joint library agreement with St. Petersburg College and nine annexation referendums that more than doubled the citys size. He more than deserves the bonus that were going to give him and hopefully it will help him change his mind and not leave the city, Quinn said.

The next budget year begins Oct. 1. For more information, visit mobility planAl Bartolotta, Planning manager for the Metropolitan Planning Organization, presented a report about ongoing work on a countywide mobility plan during a July 22 work session. According to Bartolottas report, a Mobility Plan Task Force formed in October 2009. It was comprised of planning staff from local governments, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority, Pinellas Planning Council and the Florida Department of Transportations District 7 Office, as well as citizen and business representatives. The task force worked on several goals, including: Improved efficiency of local site plan review processes in the application of growth management requirements Consistency in the application of growth management requirements across jurisdictional boundaries Furthering of the mobility goals of the local governments Addressing the transportation impacts of development projects effectively and equitably Furthering the emphasis on multi-modal transportation embraced by local comprehensive plans as well as the MPO Long Range Transportation Plan The Mobility Plan provides local governments with a new approach for managing growth as it relates to the transportation impacts of development projects, the report said. The plan revolves around the framework of the Transportation Impact Fee Ordinance, which has provided a countywide approach to Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERBill Berger, director of the Office of Management and Budget, explains changes made to the proposed FY 2015 county budget during a July 22 work session.the use of transportation impact fees since 1986. The proposed plan replaces traditional concurrency management systems based on maintaining roadway level of service standards with a more flexible approach, and it promotes multi-modal transportation. Utilizing the ordinance would allow local governments to give developers credit for pre-existing uses, which would encourage redevelopment and re-use of existing structures. The proposed Mobility Plan shifts the focus from roadway level of service to improving mobility with multi-modal transportation. It also enables local governments to provide a pay and go option for some development projects. Next steps toward approval of the plan include the commissions authorization to advertise. Then, in September or October, the Local Planning Agency will review and make its recommendation. Comprehensive Plan amendments will be sent to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity in October or November. The last step will be adoption of the changes by the county commission.Explorer Post 900 attends national conferenceLARGO Fourteen members of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post 900 joined more than 2,100 other Explorers, adult leaders, and staff from throughout the nation at the National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference, July 13-19, at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. The conference provided attendees with training, competition in all areas of law enforcement, and allowed explorers to gain an insight to all the different aspects of law enforcement throughout the nation. Sponsoring organizations included the FBI, Secret Service, Homeland Security (Customs/Border Patrol), ATF and DEA. The sponsoring agencies held a career fair at which law enforcement professionals were available to discuss career goals with individual Explorers. There also were demonstrations, exhibits, recreational and entertainment events. During the closing rally, area federal agencies and other law enforcement organizations showed off the latest in law enforcement technology and techniques. The explorers attended seminars related to domestic terrorism, forensic science, and defensive tactics. The conference featured competitions sponsored by law enforcement organizations providing realistic and practical experiences to prepare Explorers for the types of situations they would have to face in law enforcement careers. Team events included Arrest and Search, Bomb Threat Response, Crime Prevention, Crime-Scene Search, Domestic-Crisis Intervention, Shoot/Dont Shoot, Hostage Negotiation, Burglary in Progress, Traffic Accident Investigation, Traffic Stop, White-Collar Crime and Emergency Field First Aid. Four competition teams represented explorer Post 900. Team A was comprised of Explorer Capt. Spencer Shaw, Explorer Lt. Kelley Butterfield, Explorer Sgt. Lauren Paschall and Explorer Zoe Gambel. Team A received third Place in the nation for the Domestic Violence Investigation scenario. Although the other teams did not place in the top 5, the explorers learned valuable lessons on teamwork and investigative techniques. Individual competitions included air-pistol, drill, mountain bike, emergency vehicle operations course, physical agility test, honor guard, volleyball, and a pistol competition. Several explorers participated in the air pistol and pistol competition using 40 caliber semi-automatic firearms. Explorer Kelley Butterfield received first place in the slow fire phase and Explorer Max Dulsky received eighth place overall. Explorer Spencer Shaw received third place overall in the Top 20 Shooters in the nation for the 40 caliber firearms competition.

This goal is driven with safety as the key component. In a heartbeat, a fall can occur that may or may not result in broken bones but for an elderly person it can be a setback that can be life changing as far as them being able to maintain living in their homes. The effect of falls can be devastating both physically and financially. Medications are often the culprit for falls. It is a good practice to ask your doctor about the side effects of each drug you are taking so you are aware of what to expect and be sure to report them to him/her. Also share this information with your family and caregiver. Certain drugs can cause the blood pressure to lower which when getting up out of a chair or bed too quickly may cause dizziness or fainting. Try to get up slowly, especially in the middle of the night, sit on the edge of the bed a moment and then rise slowly to get your bearings. Walkers, canes and other tools of assistance are needed in the prevention of falls. Floppy slippers and shoes with slick soles can be a hazard. Often older adults tend to shuffle more than pick up their feet which makes tripping a real possibility especially on uneven pavement. It is very common for our seniors to attempt to do tasks that they have done their entire life when these very tasks now put them at risk for falling. For example, just one step up on a stool or ladder is extremely dangerous for older adults, who do not have the strength and balance of previous years. Encourage your loved ones to please ask a family member or caregiver to change a light bulb or reach items in cabinets that are too high. Electrical cords running across walkways, clutter or too many throw rugs are an accident waiting to happen. Railings on stairs, grab bars in the bathroom and adequate light are all easy fixes for prevention. It takes our eyes a while to adjust between darkness and light, therefore, adequate lighting is a must. Upon sign up for services with Comfort Keepers, a home environment assessment is done to offer the families ideas of how to take precautions against their loved one falling. This is a thorough checklist of potential conditions and/or methods to assist in prevention of injuries due to falls. Living well encompasses many aspects that in-home care can enhance. These aspects include mental, physical, nutritional and Safety considerations. We offer technology solutions, such as a Personal Emergency Response System, a fall detector, and a medication management system, all designed to increase safety.

TORRESLARGO Logan Hofstetter, 11, like any competitive surfer, pays close attention to weather patterns, winds and storms. Catching waves big enough for him to surf can be a bit of a challenge based, as he is from Largo, closest to the oftenlackluster Gulf waves. But its nothing Logans focused self-motivation cant handle. He and his father, Mike Hofstetter, travel to prime surfing spots on both Floridas west and east coasts to catch the best waves. Theyre usually trekking across the state on the weekends. Its nothing for me to ... get 20 texts: The winds blowing. When are we going? Where are we going? The trucks loaded. Lets go. I dont care about your meeting. Lets move, Mike explained with a smile. Things of that nature is what we deal with. Mike and his wife, Debbie, are proud of their son and his determination. And they admit that they had a part in his love for the beach. Weve always been water people, said Debbie. Logans been in the water since he was a baby. When he was a toddler, Logan saw kids skimboarding in the light surf of local beaches and decided he wanted to try it, Debbie said. His parents got him a cheap skimboard to start, but Logan was more serious about the venture than they expected Hes 2 and a half, dragging it across the beach, Debbie said. We realized then: hes got something special. Mike was an avid snow skier, but got into surfing about 20 years ago. As Logans coach, he works to instill techniques and discipline in Logan. And for the last 18 months, Logan has been competing. It makes me happy, and the waters my second home, Logan said. I like to have contests against my friends and stuff to prove that Im better. I just like the rush of trying to beat people. This year, he qualified for the National Scholastic Surfing Association National Championship, held in Huntington Beach, California, June 26 to July 3. The qualifying competitions began in August, one or two a month. This year, Logan did very well. He was ranked second in his region for his age division, Mike said. The East Coast Regional Championship was held April 7 in one of Logans frequent surfing spots: New Smyrna Beach. The competition included surfers from Florida and as far north as New Jersey and as far south as Barbardos. Everybody goes at it. And then you either get your ticket or you dont, Mike explained. Logan qualified for nationals in the open and explorer divisions in his age group. The competitions usually involve 15-minute heats. Each competitor is allowed to surf a maximum of 10 waves. Their score is based on their two best waves in the heat. When I paddle out, I try to catch the first wave. And then I try to get two big scores and then go look for bigger waves and bigger scores, Logan explained. Surfing is not without peril. New Smyrna Beach in particular is known for its sharks as well as its consistent surf and warm water. There were spinner sharks jumping during his heat, Mike said. Four kids got bit by sharks that weekend. Logan said the sharks used to scare him, But Im used to it now. He does still get nervous ahead of the competition, worried that he wont do as well as he hopes. The day comes really quick for me. And I just try to calm myself with music and stuff, he said. During a competition in May, the nose of his surfboard broke off as it hit the sand on the shore pound on a particularly good wave. Logan had caught one good wave before that, so he still made it to the finals. During the national competition in California, his challenge was the larger surf: 6and 7-foot waves, higher than he usually surfs in Florida. Its just harder to go from me knowing how to surf a small wave. And I have to get rid of that and learn how to swim a big wave and use that technique instead, he said. I think I did pretty good. To train for competitions, Logan practices at local skate parks and trains on equipment in his garage: weights, balance balls and an Indo Board balance trainer. He films himself performing tricks on land and water, to correct his technique. A lot of it is going down and making a progressive move in the most critical part of the wave. So in order to do that you need ramps and things to simulate going up and performing a maneuver and landing that maneuver and keeping your speed going so that you can make numerous maneuvers on said wave, Mike said. Theres a lot of bumps and bruises that occur. Logan currently is training for a qualifier in the Rip Curl GromSearch, held again in New Smyrna Beach. Many of those that have won that contest have gone on to big career s. Soits a good stepping stone, Mike said. Logans sister, Lily, five years his senior, also is into a beach sport: beach volleyball. Mike and Debbie are very busy keeping up with both of their childrens competitions. We are very blessed: he won the longboard last week and got to the semis in shortboard, and she won her beach volleyball tournament, Mike said. Were just proud of both of our kids. They seem to have found something, and are taking and running with it. Logan wants to eventually go pro, and said he thinks he has a good shot. His mother suspects that one day hell be drawn not only to visit his uncle in Hawaii, but also to live there with him. Uncle is waiting for a surfing partner, Debbie said. I feel it coming. At school, Logan gets consistently high grades. Hes participated in a math competition and won a scholarship for a summer art program at the Dal Museum this year. At Frontier Elementary School, where he just graduated, he often was nominated for exemplifying the character trait of self-motivation. Hell be attending Seminole Middle School this year. Ive never seen a child as motivated as that one, Debbie said. He doesnt stop. It actually amazes me what he does. Hes got his mind put to it. Watch out.Photo courtesy of CHARLEY HAJEKLogan Hofstetter, 11, of Largo warms up for a Gnarly Charley Grom Surf Series competition in Melbourne Beach July 12.

According to a report from Pinellas Park police, the District 6 Medical Examiner will determine the exact cause of death for Birgitta K. Melm, 61. Pinellas Park Fire Department responded to a structure fire at 7600 71st Ave. about 6 a.m. Saturday, July 26. Shortly thereafter, Pinellas Park police were notified that a body had been found inside the single-family residence. Firefighters put out the fire and remained on scene while police entered the home to begin an investigation. Police soon found out that two men, who knew the victim, had arrived prior to the firefighters. The two men had attempted unsuccessfully to put out the fire before one of the men tried to remove the woman from the home. He was overcome by smoke and had to leave the home. Police entered the home and found that the roof had partially collapsed on the east side. They found the womans body in the living room. Due to the obvious trauma and evidence that the fire was not the cause of the injuries to the female, a decision was made to call out detectives to continue the investigation, said Sgt. Adam Geissenberger, Pinellas Park police public information officer. When detectives arrived at the scene, they saw evidence that led them to believe that the female was the victim of a violent act. The determination was made at that time to treat the fire as a crime scene and that the death of the woman would be investigated as a homicide, Geissenberger wrote in his media release. Detectives and crime scene personnel started to collect evidence at the crime scene. The state fire marshal and Pinellas Park fire inspector assisted in the investigation. The medical examiner also was called to the scene. Detectives and the medical examiner did a physical examination of the victim and determined that she had a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It is now believed that the fire was intentionally set by the woman shortly before she took her own life, Geissenberger said. The woman owned several cats, which were not in the house at the time of the fire. Police think that the woman placed the cats in a shelter. One cat was left on the doorstep of a neighbor and a note was left nearby. Another note was found inside of a vehicle owned by the woman. Neither note offered any insight as to why the fire was set, Geissenberger said. An autopsy will be required to determine the actual cause of death. There is no reason for investigators to believe this was anything more than a suicide. Su zze tte P ort erMan arrested for exposing kids to pornST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives arrested a St. Petersburg man July 25, on charges of lewd and lascivious molestation and for exposing three minors to pornographic materials. Roger Lyle Kent, 67, was charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation; protection of minors; and prohibition of certain acts in connection with obscenity. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail where he is being held without bond. Detectives with the Crimes Against Children Unit say the victims, one male and one female, were under the age of 12 when the act was committed. The investigation began on July 1. The crime occurred at a private residence in St. Petersburg. According to investigators, the male victim told his father about the incident. The father reported the crime to the sheriffs office. Detectives determined that Kent had exposed the three children to pornographic video materials for about four to five years. Detectives also said that Kent had touched the boy in an inappropriate sexual manner; and made the girls touch him in an inappropriate manner. This activity repeated itself on multiple occasions. Detectives interviewed Kent at the Sheriffs Administration Building in Largo July 25, and subsequently arrested him.One driver cited in two-vehicle crashPINELLAS PARK Westbound Park Street was closed at 60th Street just before 5 p.m. Thursday, July 24, as Pinellas Park police worked the scene involving two overturned vehicles. According to the police report, a 2011 Nissan truck, driven by Kenton Sams, 70, of Treasure Island and a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta, driven by Shawn Barnes, 35, of Madeira Beach were traveling west in the 6000 block of Park Boulevard. The truck was in the center lane and the Jetta was in the median lane. Due to roadway construction the pavement in the median lane had been removed which created a 1-inch lip between the median and center lanes. When the Jetta changed lanes from the median to the center, the front right tire failed and resulted in a blowout. The car traveled 218 feet and went from the median lane to the sidewalk on the north side of Park Boulevard. The car then traveled 255 feet on the sidewalk with the right half of the car on the sidewalk and the left half of the car in the curb lane of Park Boulevard. While on the sidewalk, the Jetta struck a PSTA bus stop sign breaking the pole at the base. When the car reached the driveway of 6035 Park Blvd., it swerved left into the curb lane and the left half of the vehicle went into the center lane. At that time, the front of the Jetta struck the right rear of the Nissan truck. The truck veered left and fishtailed, bringing the back of the vehicle to the median lane. The truck was sideways with the drivers side door facing west. It rolled onto the drivers side and then onto its roof continuing to spin; the vehicle was traveling west. Then the truck left the roadway and went into the grass area of 6051 Park Blvd. where it hit a fixed sign. Police said after the Jetta hit the rear of the truck, the right front rim dug into the roadway and the Jetta rolled onto its passenger side and then rolled onto the roof. The vehicle came to a stop in the curb lane of Park Boulevard. Injuries were reported, but were minimal, according to the report. Investigators believe that seat belts and airbags prevented more serious injuries. Barnes was issued a citation for careless driving. Independent witnesses told investigators that the vehicle was driving at a high rate of speed just before the crash.PSCO seeks Mad Hatters burglarsLEALMAN Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives assigned to the Burglary & Pawn Unit are seeking the publics assistance in locating two commercial burglary suspects from the Lealman area.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSNo excuse for Seminole City Councils anticsE ditor: The Seminole City Council is a nonpartisan legislative group placed into office by the electors of the city of Seminole. It appears since 2007 that some of the council members are having difficulty understanding the definition of nonpartisan. With so many issues being decided by a 6-1 vote, one may be asking if a councils members political preference is interfering with their decision. If partisan politics are involved it would explain why some issues are being questioned a practice which may not have occurred in the past. Ignoring or evading the questions only creates more questions. Seminole residents resent the constant bickering taking place at city hall. They are exposed to the antics of our congressional leaders on a daily basis in Washington, D.C., so there is no excuse for the same actions taking place in the local community. Censure is a political action usually employed on the national level. For a member to initiate such an action on the local level may indicate a lack of legislative experience and ability to solve problems. In addition, it puts the other members in the uncomfortable position of voting on a motion, which should not have been made. Maybe it would better serve the public if the councilor responsible for the censure motion would focus more attention on their unmet campaign promises. Pa t J ord an SeminolePlantamura is a disruptive forceE ditor: This is a letter in favor of the Seminole City Council vote for censure of Ms. Plantamura. For years Plantamura has been a disruptive force on the City Council and I applaud the courage of the city council, by a vote of 6 for, 1 against, censure. Finally the City Council is standing up, and pointing out how Plantamura has been so disruptive and harmful to the organized running of our Seminole city government. Mr. Edmunds is one of the best city managers in America and I am afraid Ms. Plantamura has hastened his departure. Ms. Plantamura does not work well with others, and especially with Mr. Edmunds. R oy al Edmonds SeminoleCouncil member: Censure is character assassinationE ditor: I must set the record straight regarding the censure by Seminole Council. This was a baseless attempt to discredit me. I am not so naive as to think that these things dont happen in politics. I am not in this office for a popularity contest, but to serve my city. That said, the censure is character assassination, which has led to unsubstantiated accusations. Should this continue, it will be followed by charges of libel and/or slander. I am guilty of one thing asking questions and expecting answers. I recently wrote three yet unanswered letters to City Manager Edmunds. The letters inquired about an employee repeating a death threat on an elected official; unauthorized filing through city records without the clerks permission and the resultant lock being changed on the official files of the city; and why a candidate who missed an election deadline was qualified by our city to run. I also questioned city policy on threats of violence. The censure is a theatrical distraction from those serious questions. Citizens should seek out the facts through City Hall, which may become more difficult, as the major issue during censure discussion was Councils motion allowing the city to choose not to fulfill public requests for information. Under this new motion, if a citizen asks our manager for information, which could expose mismanagement, Edmunds can, at his discretion, now simply ask if Council would dismiss the request. Fortunately, video-recordings of meetings are on the citys website and my unanswered letters are posted at Pa trici a P la nt a mur a Seminole City Councilor Rights of LGT citizens: a slippery slope for the majorityRe: Domestic partnerships: not equality, Tiffany Razzanos column, July 24E ditor: I suppose you deem it your charter to give voice to all representations of our society, albeit even those in the extreme minority. Fair enough. You serve us well by protecting our rights to free speech. The question is: How are we in the majority to respond to pleas like Tiffanys? As lesbians, she and her girlfriend are part of a group of LGBT citizens that make up only 3-4 percent of our population by the latest scientific polls. Yet, their complaints against our government seem to be getting an inordinate amount of press and response in public policy. The problem seems to be a lack of consensus and will in the majority about what we think is essential to protect liberty and what is aberrant behavior. It presents a slippery slope that will continue to subject us to the tyranny of other small minorities lest we sort out what is really constitutionally defensible. Tiffany says that she and her girlfriend are just like any loving couple, that wants no deserves to spend their lives together. There will be public costs to protecting this demand both fiscal and social. We the people ought to consider carefully whether we can afford them in the long run. Ro ge r S he ll Redington Shores Proud to be Madeira Beach residentsE ditor: My husband and I just returned from having breakfast at the Snack Shack at Archibald Park. We thought the food was delicious and the surroundings well when you can look out from your seat at the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, life is great. The new Snack Shack recently opened last week and we were excited to check it out. The staff was busy putting extra little touches to the place but they still had time for a smile and a warm welcome to their establishment. As a resident, I happily commend the city on all of the improvements that have been made possible in the area and the progress is well worth it. We are able to see the community improve and flourish right before our eyes. It makes us proud to say that we live in the beautiful city of Madeira Beach. J udy Sh ow e ll Madeira Beach Americans like to think we live in a classless society. I agree. All my life Ive bumped into individuals with no class at all. Rude, illbred whelps, oozing offensiveness from every unwashed pore. You know the kind, Im sure. However, whether we like it or not, the rest of us are scattered into dozens of classes, categories and types. For example, in todays economy we each belong either to the top 1 percent (who have financial assets greater than the net worth of Argentina), or the bottom 99 percent, who wander around in tattered confusion, muttering Where did my money go? Then there are the social classes. The major groupings used to go like this: Working class, i.e., persons who earn money with their muscles and carry lunch buckets to work; the white collar class, who work in offices and watch Facebook on their computers; and the professional class doctors, lawyers, and auto mechanics who earn $500 an hour and up. All other workers were divided into dozens of sub-categories such as nurses, long-distance truck drivers and monkey-cage cleaners. The symbol of social climbing was a ladder, or a greasy pole. This gave rise to sayings such as Be nice to people on your way up, because youll meet them again on your way down. Also, The only thing wrong with reaching the top is that from that point theres only one way to go. These epigrams are credited both to Charlemagne and to Pete Rose. The chief goal of social climbers was to be (or appear) different or better than those around you. There are about 2,700 ways to do this. In the old days, the most common climbing techniques included getting rich, getting a better education, owning a big house and a Maserati automobile, or joining a country club where you could eat in a noisy dining room while engaging in intellectual talk, i.e., real estate. Some of those methods still work, but todays ultimate social climbing device is to become cool. Once youre accepted as being cool, the sky is your limit, at least for a short time. The trouble is that the meaning of cool is always changing. Whats cool today can be regarded as lame tomorrow. A similar glitch is that what raises your status in the eyes of some people will cause you to become a joke to others. Example: implanting a steel ball in your tongue, or having a dragon tattooed on your forearm. Either of those moves can bring you new friends on the street, but you can say sayonara to your future as a stockbroker. Another mistake a social climber can make is to appear in public in flip-flops. If Bill Gates, Helen Mirren or Charlie Rose were to step out on the street while wearing flipflops, they would dive 80 points on the distinguished scale. Maybe thats just my prejudice. Over the years, social climbing and selfimprovement have sometimes become entangled. Example: enlarging your vocabulary. In the 1950s, dozens of books offered to teach you bigger, better words such as egregious and misanthropic. The assumption was that if someone heard you use such terms, he would immediately hire you or ask you to marry his rich spinster aunt. Today, of course, anyone using a word more arcane than awesome will be shunned as a showoff and a freak. Another status-raising fad was public speaking. Toastmasters and the Dale Carnegie courses promised, or implied, that if you could get up and express yourself smoothly before a group, your business and social future was assured. Im sure that often was the case. However, the flaw in that idea was that when your speech ended and you sat down, you were still Homer Hankins from Gulch, Okla. Nothing had changed. As you can see from all of the foregoing discussion, determining the class in which we belong can be confusing and inconclusive. Today, many ambitious men and women dont climb ladders; they simply move sideways into new playing fields and situations. There they succeed or fail because of their own efforts or, more likely, because of the invisible influence of time, fate, happenstance and dumb luck. At the center of the effort to join another better class is the wish to alter ones basic nature or origins. You cant fault an oyster for wanting to smooth down the rough edges of its shell. But in the process the oyster may accidentally get rid of the piece of grit that, left alone, would turn into a pearl.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is his ground against wildlifeI hope I dont dream that I fed a downy woodpecker to a crocodile in the Largo Nature Preserve. Critters have been on my mind lately. And when I think about critters too much, I tend to have wild dreams about them from dust mites to Colombian tegus. A couple of Saturdays ago, I heard a large banging on the side of the roof on my building. The uninvited guest was a downy woodpecker, which ignored me as I began shooting pictures of it. Then I realized that the little bugger had a masonry drill bit for a beak and was creating a cavern in the roof. I dont think our condo board authorized this work. Keep it up and youre going to be a dead downy, I said to the bird, putting down my camera. I guess the bird got tired of all the attention it was getting and probably was offended at the names it was being called because I havent seen it since last weekend. I asked our office bug control guy what was the best way to get rid of a woodpecker. One of his suggestions was to put a rubber snake on the roof. Ahhhh the ol rubber snake remedy. Good idea. When I was kid I had a rubber snake, which usually rested on the top of my chest of drawers in my bedroom. One day the housekeeper, Irene, came in and saw the snake. Irene shrieked and fled the room. Hearing Irenes blood-curdling scream was enough to make me flee the room. Wonder what shed do if she saw a real snake, or something bigger, such as a gator.Speaking of which, with fears of a woodpecker peering out of a hole in my roof fresh on my mind, I listened to voicemail from a reader who said that the photographer erred in identifying the subject of a photo as an alligator in a recent edition of our newspapers. Thats a crocodile, dude. And you need to let authorities know about it because they are a whole lot more aggressive then alligators are. Look at your picture learn your gators and crocs, the reader said. Call the authorities? Good idea to ask them to get rid of the damn woodpecker on my roof. Crocodile in the Largo Nature Preserve? Theres a better chance of seeing a monkey there. Guess its possible a crocodile could call the preserve home, since an 11-footer was found in Lake Tarpon a year ago. But a crocodile would have to be adept at charting a course to the preserve from there or anywhere else without ending up as road kill unless it befriended a coyote that showed it the way. Somebodys pet? A 10-foot python was found dead in the preserve in 2009. I wonder what Irene would think of that? Dozens of reports have been made throughout Florida in the past two decades about people encountering, harboring or being attacked by exotic animals, such as tegus, boas, monitors, piranhas and zebradonkey hybrids. So I dont ignore most calls from readers about wildlife, including a report of a Sasquatch and an Elvis sighting. We referred the reptile matter to the Tampa Bay Newspapers animal identification committee, which consists of three editors. Meeting on July 22, we discussed for about a minute whether said reptile was an alligator, crocodile, tegus or just a decoy. All in favor of it being an alligator say I, I said. Motion passed 3-0. Its an alligator, dude, unless a wildlife expert says otherwise. Havent heard back from state yet, but Id be surprised if we and our photographer were in error. The animal identification committee was no help with my woodpecker problem. You should also know that I really have no intention of killing it because that would be a violation of the Migratory Bird Act and probably a dozen other laws, treaties, codes of ethics, the Ten Commandments and what not. However, if I did resort to violence, I think I could make a compelling argument that Id be covered by the Stand Your Ground law. Wheres Irene when I need her? She could scare anything to death. One shriek from her and its bye bye birdie.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond@TB We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

Tampa Bay Comic ConSteranko, Wolfman set to appear at Tampas own comic book extravaganza By LEE CLARK ZUMPETAMPA One week after more than 100,000 fans congregated in California for the San Diego Comic-Con, Tampa Bay area residents will have an opportunity to gather at the Tampa Bay Comic Con, running Aug. 1-3, at the Tampa Convention Center, 333 S. Franklin St., Tampa. Hours will be Friday, noon to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There also will be after hours programming, from 6 p.m. to midnight, on Friday and Saturday. Admission is $20 for one day or $45 for three days. Visit www.tampabay The Tampa Bay Comic Con Tampas own comic book get-together is widely considered as Floridas premiere family-friendly and fanowned comic book convention. The annual event originated in 2002, though it can trace its roots back to 2000 when it existed under a different name and was operated through different ownership. Today, the Tampa Bay Comic Con is owned and operated by Action 3 Events & Promotions, founded by Stephen Solomon and Bill Rocker. Event organizers provide a variety of exhibitors that cater to a widespectrum of comic fandom interests. Attendees will find vendors selling comic books, magazines, toys, games, anime, manga, cosplay, artwork, sketches and apparel. It isnt just about spending cash acquiring cool collectibles, though. The Tampa Bay Comic Con also strives to bring in a roster of guest creators and/or celebrities for attendees to meet. Special attention is given to keeping the convention fun and accessible to families with low admission for adults and free admission for children. In 2013, the convention drew an estimated 28,000 attendees throughout the weekend. According to event organizers, this years event is expected to attract more than 30,000 attendees. Celebrity guests will include appearances by Richard Madden and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) and John Rhys Davis (Lord of the Rings). Its certainly exciting having Richard [Madden] on-board for the upcoming Tampa Bay Comic Con, said Solomon in a press release. We are already well known by Game of Thrones fans from our guests last year. Solidifying TBCC as an event that draws big names from around the world, that no other similar event has ever drawn, is a big positive. In addition to those stars, TBCC has already secured several stars of film and television, including Evan Peters and Daniel Cudmore of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Caity Lotz of Arrow and Brighton Sharbino and Kyla Kenedy of The Walking Dead. The convention also will feature a number of creative forces in the comic book world, including legendary artist and writer Jim Steranko and writer Marv Wolfman both listed as guests of honor. Many other comic book creators will making appearances at this years event, such as Mike Zeck, Cullen Bunn, Frank Brunner, John Beatty, Mike Grell, Rob Hunter, Joe Rivera, Paolo Riera, Bernie Wrightson, Bob Camp and many others. Steranko is one of the most colorful characters in comic book history. Over his lifetime, he has been an illustrator, musician, art director, magician, fire-eater, designer, escape artist, filmmaker, pop-culture lecturer and publisher. According to the biography provided by TBCC, Steranko was responsible for more than 100 innovations as artist-writer on Marvel titles such as S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America and X-Men. The techniques he introduced revolutionized the comic book form. As an illustrator, Steranko painted a multitude of book covers, record jackets and movie posters, including 30 Shadow paperbacks. He has shown his work at more than 200 exhibitions worldwide, including the Louvre in Paris and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. Wolfman is best known for a lengthy run on the Marvel Comics title The Tomb of Dracula for which he and artist Gene Colan created the vampire-slayer Blade; as well as his work on DC Comics The New Teen Titans. His first published work for DC Comics appeared in Blackhawk, Issue No. 242, in 1968. He and longtime friend Len Wein created the character Jonny Double in Showcase, Issue No. 78, that same year. The two co-wrote Eye of the Beholder in Teen Titans, Issue No. 18 in 1968. Wolfman and Gil Kane created an origin for Wonder Girl in Teen Titans, Issue No. 22, which also introduced the characters new costume. In 1972, Wolfman moved to Marvel Comics, where he went on to work on titles including The Tomb of Dracula, Daredevil and Marvels adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs John Carter, Warlord of Mars. The convention will offer a wide variety of panels, including question-and-answer sessions with various guests, makeup and costume programs, a zombie costume contest, roleplaying and gaming, speed dating and discussions on everything from Doctor Who to comic book publishing.

It is a place where people learn, create and exhibit and is located in the heart of St. Petersburg. It was voted No. 1 mid-size arts destination in the U.S. in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The Morean Arts Center, with roots dating back to 1917 as the Art Club of St. Petersburg, focuses on an innovative, community-oriented approach to art and art education. Programming under the Morean Arts Center includes the Chihuly Collection, Morean Glass Studio and Hot Shop and the Morean Center for Clay, each of which will be represented in this exhibit. Local artists and Morean Arts Center instructors featured in the airport exhibit are: Leslie Neumann, encaustic painting; Ya LaFord, mixed media; Randy Van Duinen, photography and Neverne Covington, painting, drawing, printmaking. The Morean offers more than 200 classes in a variety of mediums to all ages of students, designed to bring out the artist in all of us. The Chihuly Collection opened in July 2010, and is a stunning, permanent collection of Dale Chihulys unique artwork. Chihulys passion and support of childrens art education was a prime reason for choosing St. Petersburg as the home for the Chihuly Collection. All proceeds earned through ticket and retail sales stay local to St. Petersburg to help support and sustain the educational programs at the Morean Arts Center. Now on-view at the Chihuly Collection is a new temporary exhibition space, which will present works from glass artists from all over the country. Since the opening of the Chihuly Collection in 2010, the city of St. Petersburg has seen an expansion in the art of glass like no other medium; and not just in the arts community, but tourists and locals alike. Also opened in 2010 were the Morean Glass Studio and Hot Shop, where visitors can watch local glass artists create beautiful blown pieces right before their eyes. The Morean is featuring its own resident artists in this exhibit: Pauli Maiville and Douglas Firebug Taylor as well as local glass artists Duncan McClellan and Susan Gott. Morean Center for Clay located at the historic train station is the Moreans hidden gem in the Warehouse Arts District offering supplies, education, studio space, and gallery sales in one building. This seamless access to clay services is a unique experience offered in few locations in the country. Not only is the Historic Train Station a destination for those interested in making clay art, but a haven for any pottery enthusiast. Fans and more importantly collectors of ceramics and pottery will be amazed at the level of talent, variety and sheer amount of high quality clay art available for purchase.Carnivores Tour to visit Steinbrenner FieldTAMPA For the first time ever, Linkin Park will play with Thirty Seconds to Mars and special guest AFI on a 25-city tour this summer, kicking off Friday, Aug. 8, in West Palm Beach. The second show on the Carnivores Tour will bring the bands to the Tampa Bay area, with a show set for Saturday, Aug. 9, 6:30 p.m., at George M. Steinbrenner Field, 3802 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Tampa, Tickets start at $30. Visit www.ticketmaster .com. This will be the first concert presented at Steinbrenner Field since 1996, which at the time was called Legends Field. It has been close to 19 years since we have held a concert at Steinbrenner Field so we wanted to kick things off with one of the hottest rock concerts touring this summer, said Howard Grosswirth in a press release. Grosswirth is vice president of marketing for the New York Yankees. We are extremely excited about reintroducing concert goers to this world-class venue, the momentum behind the Carnivores Tour and our future plans of hosting more concerts at Steinbrenner Field. EVENT Live has teamed up with George M. Steinbrenner Field and Sailaway Productions to become the official mobile app as well as provide marketing and promotional support for the Tampa stop of the Carnivores Tour. We could not be more excited to join forces with the mega brands behind this tour to help reintroduce Steinbrenner Field to the concert world while enhancing the overall concert experience with the EVENT Live app, said Ryan Waier, CEO of EVENT Live. The Carnivores Tour, sponsored in-part by Infinity and promoted by Live Nation, will showcase three multi-platinum bands in what organizers are calling an unforgettable night of music featuring some of the biggest rock and alternative radio hits from the past decade. In a post on the tours official Facebook page, colead singer of Linkin Park Mike Shinoda explained the unusual name of the tour. Carnivores is a metaphor that is meant to convey an appetite for something visceral and substantive, Shinoda said. I feel thats exactly the hunger this tour will feed. We are so excited to join our friends on this epic journey, said Jared Leto of Thirty Seconds to Mars in the press release. Its going to be the adventure of a lifetime. A&E NEWS, from page 2B

As Lee struggles to recover from her psychic and physical wounds, she crosses paths with Hafsia (Hafsia Herzi), a young Tunisian migrant in need of an abortion and safe passage to France, who bears a striking resemblance to a Libyan girl Lee photographed just before her capture.

Jones, The Bar-Kays and William Bell modern music makers who brought soul into the mainstream will bring the Memphis Music Fest to downtown St. Petersburg on Friday, Aug. 8, 8 p.m., at The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S. Tickets start at $39. Call 8937832 or visit www.themahaffey .com. This concert will feature a tripleheader of soul and blues men, including Booker T. Jones, The Bar-Kays and William Bell. Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, record producer and arranger Booker T. Jones is a 1992 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Musicians Hall of Fame inductee, 2007 Grammy Lifetime Achievement recipient and four-time Grammy winner. Best known as the front man for Booker T. and the MGs, Jones had an early start in the music industry from high school days. He played the oboe, saxophone, trombone, bass and piano, served as organist at his church and worked as a staff musician at the age of 16 for Stax Records in Memphis, cowriting the classic instrumental Green Onions. He released his 10th album, Sound the Alarm, featuring a group of guest artists including his son Ted Jones, in 2013. It can be argued that it was Jones who set the cast for modern soul music and is largely responsible for its rise and enduring popularity. On classic Stax hits like Green Onions, Hang Em High, Time Is Tight, and Melting Pot, Jones pushed the musics boundaries, refined it to its essence and then injected it into the nations bloodstream. Sound The Alarm finds the Hammond B3 organ master looking ahead yet again, laying down his distinctive bedrock grooves amid a succession of sparkling collaborations with some of contemporary R&Bs most gifted young voices. Sound The Alarm also marks Jones historic return to Stax Records, the Memphis soul label the instrumentalist, bandleader, producer, and songwriter helped put on the map during the 1960s, along with his brilliant band, the MGs. According to his biography provided by Concord Music Group, Jones connection to Stax Records began when he was still a teen, when the Bluff City label was founded out of McLemore Avenues Satellite Record Shop. I found the music that I loved for the rest of my life at Satellite Records, while I was on my bike soliciting customers on my paper route, Jones said in the biography. I walked into the lobby of the Capitol Theater, and it had been transformed into a record store, and there was Steve Cropper playing records for me there when I was in ninth grade. That legacy is my heart and my life. Thats where I come from. Originating as the Stax Records house band in 1966, The Bar-Kays were born from soul music and turbulent times. The band developed a raw soul sound that resonated with a young AfricanAmerican audience. The Bar-Kays have a career total of 29 albums, including one platinum album, five gold albums, and 20 Top 10 singles. It was The Bar-Kays purposeful soulfulness that first carried them to the top of the charts in 1967 with the hit Soulfinger. According to the biography on the bands website, the vibrancy of their approach landed them the careerchanging backup spot for the legendary Otis Redding on his final worldwide tour. The tour, however, had a disastrous finale with Otis Redding and four band members perishing in a tragic plane accident. The band persevered in the face of tragedy, soon recruiting vocalist Larry Dodson. The new Bar-Kays became the premier house band for Stax Records. This edition of the Bar-Kays went on to play on records behind such artists as Carla Thomas, Rufus Thomas, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, Soul Children and Isaac Hayes. The Bar-Kays were integral to Isaac Hayes iconic albums such as Hot Buttered Soul, Black Moses and the Grammy Award-winning album Shaft. Members of The Bar-Kays include Larry Dodson, lead singer; James Alexander, bass player and founder of the Bar-Kays; Tony Gentry, guitar; Ezra Williams, keyboards; Carlos Sargent, drums; Mark Bynum, keyboards; Darrel Stanley, background vocals; Archie Love, background vocals; Bryant Nesbitt, sound engineer; and Mike Anderson, guitar. A recent stint with Curb Records saw a hit for The BarKays with Everybody Wants That Love, and, in 2011, they had radio success with Return of the Mack. James and I are old pros but our band is very youthful, said Dodson in the bands biography. As a result, we have always been able to bridge the gap between old and new and reach many people. Singer/songwriter William Bell has come to define the essence of soul during a distinguished 40year career that started with the band The Del-Rios in the late 1950s. Born in Memphis but based in Atlanta since 1970, William Bell was one of the pioneers of the classic Stax/Volt sound, joining such other illustrious musical forces at that label as Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Isaac Hayes, Booker T. & the MGs, Albert King, Eddie Floyd, Carla and Rufus Thomas, The Staple Singers and the Bar-Kays, among others. He is probably best known for his debut single, 1961s You Dont Miss Your Water. After a two-year stint in the Armed Forces, William released his first full-length album in 1967, the classic The Soul of a Bell, which included the Top 20 hit single, Everybody Loves a Winner. That same year, blues great Albert King recorded what came to be his signature tune, Born Under a Bad Sign, also written by Bell, which has since become one of the most-recorded blues songs. The song also was recorded by Cream. Bells 1967 Every Day Will be a Holiday was featured in the 2010 sci-fi thriller Repo Men. According to a biography on the artists website, Bell released a brand new studio album, New Lease on Life, in the spring of 2006. In addition to New Lease on Life, other standout songs in an album full of highlights include the testifying Playaz Only Love You (When Theyre Playing), the soulful duet with Jeff Floyd on Somebodys Gonna Lose A Good Woman and My Body Dont Know. Bell also continues to produce and develop a number of new artists on his Wilbe label, such as Jeff Floyd, Lola, Dave Morris and Reginald Wizard Jones and The Total Package Band.

When little, teasing trials come, And pelt you every hour, just Spread your many blessings out To keep you from the shower. A big umbrella make of them, And as the trials fall, theyll Strike your shield, scatter there And not reach you at all. When you find that this is true, Please pass the word along, so Others, too, may shelter find, When things are going wrong. When they see your smiling face So free from care and fret, Theyll also lift their blessings up To keep from getting wet!Poems of Dawn Submitted by Joy Cometh in the Morning Dedicated to Inspiration & Enlightenment Through the Written Word 073114 Capitol Theatre to present s Movie SeriesCLEARWATER Movie night at the Capitol Theatre is back and the venue has put together a classic lineup of films for cinema lovers. Beginning Saturday, Aug. 2, the s Movie Series will serve up double features at the Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets are $7 for both movies and are now on sale. Call 791-7400 or visit Tired of the standard Hollywood blockbuster fare? Longing for the films of yesteryear? Capitol Theatres schedule of timeless 1970s movies will give Pinellas audiences an opportunity to have a nostalgic night at the movies experience. Showcasing some of the most memorable films of the decade, the s Movie Series has paired similarly-themed movies to create some creative double features. The double features will be complemented by s concessions and prizes, a full bar and a 15 to 20 minute intermission between movies. Following is a summary of upcoming screenings for the s Movie Series: Saturday, Aug. 2 Earthquake and Jaws, 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16 Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles, 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23 Burnt Offerings and Exorcist, 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6 Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Alien, 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20 Grease and American Graffiti, 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27 Rocky and Rocky 2, 7 p.m. The first pairing set for Saturday, Aug. 2 will be Earthquake and Jaws. Los Angeles is the natural site for a film about earthquakes: they happen there frequently and the landscape is familiar to moviegoers from thousands of films. Earthquake features a number of ongoing vignettes, which include cameos from numerous celebrities and stars, all tied together by the ongoing efforts of architect Graff (Charlton Heston) to rescue his estranged spoiled-rich-girl wife (Ava Gardner), while helping out with the ongoing rescue efforts taking place around him and while trying to determine what has happened to his mistress Denise (Genvieve Bujold). The rumbling sound effect designed for this film won a Best Sound Oscar for the film in 1975. There has never been a movie or a phenomenon like Jaws, the terrifying motion picture from the horrific bestseller by Peter Benchley. One of the most popular films of all time, Jaws was directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Roy Schneider, Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw. The film continues to shock moviegoers with its riveting tale of three men who become allied in a life-and-death hunt to destroy a killer embodying nearly three tons of instant white death.New Hope Heroes campaign to host concertCLEARWATER The New Hope for Heros Mega-Concert Series will kick off at the newly renovated Capitol Theatre with a special tribute show for our local veterans, their families and all those who have given their lives for our country. Live at the Capitol Theatre, the inspiring evening of appreciation and remembrance will offer local veterans of all wars the grateful thanks of the Clearwater community. The public is invited to attend, so hundreds of $25 general admission tickets are available to the general public, 100 percent free at the campaign website.

Adding special video segments to the live musical performances scheduled for the Aug. 21 show was inspired by and derived from the multi award-winning program that aired in May, on PBS, before a concert audience of hundreds of thousands and seen by troops serving around the world on the American Forces Network. Its a truly American, community event and all are welcome so long as the tickets last, said Ann Anderson in a press release. Anderson is the campaign executive director. Its an appreciation party, celebration, a mega-music concert presentation where our local veterans and their families are able to experience this moving tribute to their service and sacrifices in far away lands, said Captain Val LaFrance of Tarpon Springs. Its a time for us as Pinellas residents to gather together and have our voices of thanks and appreciation heard by the sons and daughters, mothers and fathers from Pinellas who paid so dearly to keep us all safe here at home. Thats why the $25 general seating tickets are available free online right now. The concert will feature the following segments: The program will recognize our service men and women with a special Welcome Home to thank veterans who served in Afghanistan, including a musical salute featuring one of Tampa Bays most beautiful operatic voices, Nancy Burridge. A story about a critically wounded veteran suffering from severe physical injuries and the grave invisible wounds of war. The story of a mother coping with grief after the death of her son, the first to die in Afghanistan. His service inspired her to become actively involved with Gold Star Mothers. Now she is helping other mothers with their loss, grief and healing as they move forward with their lives featuring an emotionally driven performance by Orlando songstress Emily Cutting. The 70th anniversary of the DDay invasion of the Normandy beaches of France will be commemorated, a seminal moment that turned the tides of war in favor of the Allies. World War II veterans who participated in the D-Day invasion will be honored and featured in this tribute to the sacrifices of our nations greatest generation. The New Hope Concert ends with an all out world-music performance by E. Laurence Bake and the cast of Trans-Formation.About The New Hope Campaign USAThe Pinellas County based New Hope for Heroes Campaign USA provides community-oriented, world-class music and entertainment concerts with inspirational and motivational elements for U.S. veterans and their families, creatively offsetting the life-destroying effects of war.

If you live in an ordered evacuation zone, you should already be at your safe place (host home, hotel or shelter). If you are not evacuating, its time to brave the storm. Here are some important tips to remember: Stay tuned to local news or PCC-TV for updates. Close interior doors. Secure and brace external doors. If power goes out, use your weather radio for alerts. For light, use flashlights, batteryoperated lanterns or chemical light sticks. Avoid burning candles and do not run a generator inside. Stay indoors and most importantly, stay calm. Parents should extend greater patience and understanding to children having difficulty coping with the situation. Be honest about the danger and reassure them that you are focused on their safety. Do your best to keep them entertained or occupied. Do not be fooled if there is a lull; it could be the eye of the storm and winds may pick up again.IF YOUR HOME IS BREACHEDEven though you have taken the necessary precautions to protect your home, the exterior can be breached. Debris can break through windows, and trees can crash through your roof. When this happens, take these immediate actions: Take refuge in a small interior room, closet or hallway on the lowest level of your home. Remember, the center of your house is the safest. Lie on the floor under a table or other sturdy object if you cannot make it to a safe room. Consider leaving your home ONLY if remaining poses an imminent threat to your life. Wait until the storm has passed to tend to any damage. 071714 Hurricane Season is coming: Prepare for the worst Save with the best TREE TRIMMING, TREE REMOVAL HAULING & REMOVAL OF DEBRISLandscaping, Clean-outs Bucket truck available.(727)487-3695www.precisiontreeservices.net061214 16 month old Easton, pride and joy of the Hloska Family Lic.#CCC1330040 State Certified Roofing ContractorCustomer Satisfaction Guaranteed!Email: chris@prideroofs.comwww.prideroofs.com727-934-7663All Employees are covered by Workmans Comp and General Liability Insurance! 072414 Roofing Roofing Roofing Pressure Cleaning Pressure Cleaning

The tour makes a stop in the Tampa Bay area Sunday, Aug. 3, 7 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $49.50. Call 791-7400 or visit Doors will open two hours before show time for the Under the Sun Marketplace. The inaugural Under The Sun tour was among last years most popular and acclaimed events, earning ecstatic media attention with each stop along the way. Looking forward to once again spending the summer with my friends, performing the hits we all love, said Sugar Rays Mark McGrath in a press release promoting the tour. This is one of the strongest lineups we have put together so far. All four bands are capable of headlining Under The Sun, so get there early. This is going to be the party of the summer, said Uncle Kracker. Cant wait to hit the road with some of my old friends, looking forward to making some new ones.Under the Sun lineupFor nearly three decades, Blues Traveler has embraced a wide array of musical styles from pop, folk and R&B to psychedelic soul and Southern rock and transformed them into their own inimitable brand of free-spirited rock n roll. In addition to worldwide album sales in excess of 13 million, the New Jersey-based band has performed close to 6,000 live shows, bringing crossover hits like the Grammy Award-winning, Billboard top 10 smash Run-Around to nearly 30 million ecstatic fans worldwide. Like any outfit active for more than 25 years, Blues Traveler has weathered its share of obstacles, including frontman John Poppers near fatal motorcycle accident and the tragic loss of founding bassist Bobby Sheehan. But true to its moniker, the band traveled on, maintaining an average touring pace of 250 shows each year and regularly releasing a series of compelling and creative new releases. Blues Travelers most recent studio outing, 2012s acclaimed Suzie Cracks The Whip, saw bright new colors added to the bands already jampacked palette, fusing a gloriously modern pop energy to their masterful musicianship and ever-expanding creativity. The bands current lineup features John Popper on vocals and harmonica, Chan Kinchla on guitars, Tad Kinchla on bass, Ben Wilson on keyboards and Brendan Hill on drums and percussion. According to the bands biography at UD Factory artist management, the members of Blues Traveler had a blast working for the first time ever with a handful of dynamic outside songwriting collaborators and the powerhouse production team of Sam Hollander and Dave Sluggo Katz, aka S*A*M and Sluggowho have worked their studio magic for everyone from rap rock band Gym Class Heroes to pop princess Katy Perry. Working with S*A*M and Sluggo was like being in a Tarantino movie, where the vibe is the primary thing and the focus is on the importance of telling a story, said Popper. Sam Hollander told us he saw Blues Traveler as three unique disciplines working together my approach, alongside Chan doing his own thing, and then the rhythm section led by Brendan. Best known as lead singer/songwriter for Sugar Ray, Mark McGrath a Southern California-native can lay claim to a stunning string of top 10 hits, including Someday, When Its Over, and the twin No. 1 classics, Fly and Every Morning. McGrath and Sugar Ray proved worldwide fan favorites, with multiple multi-platinum albums, countless sold-out tours, innumerable television appearances, and starring roles on the covers of such national publications as Spin and Rolling Stone. More than two decades since their foundation, the members of Sugar Ray remain devoted to the cause that united them, the pursuit of good times, sunshine, and great rock n roll. The Southern California-based bands most recent album was 2009s Music for Cougars, an exuberant reiteration of the bands signature sound, with particular focus on song-craft and sonic invention. As ever, musical styles from dancehall to disco, punk to pure pop are mixed and matched, resulting in a celebratory, swaggering collection that is distinctively and delightfully Sugar Ray. Songs like the buoyant single Boardwalk and Love Is the Answer are fit to burst with the wit and energy that once saw the band rule over the Top 10. Music for Cougars sees this band of brothers operating at the very peak of its powers, with the skills, strengths, and smarts that only two decades together can provide. Im not going to say we made the best record of our career, said McGrath in the bands bio provided by Kingdom Entertainment. Thats just so clichd. But we did! Initially known for his role as DJ in Kid Rocks legendary Twisted Brown Trucker band, Uncle Kracker soon staked his own claim for greatness via a unique stylistic synthesis of pop, rock, country, soul, blues, and even doo-wop. Known to his parents as Matt Shafer, the Detroit-based singer/songwriter made his stunning solo debut with 2001s No. 1 smash Follow Me, kicking off a run of top 10 multi-format hits like In A Little While, Smile and 2003s record-setting cover of Dobie Grays Drift Away. As if that werent enough, the following year saw Uncle Kracker topping Billboards Hot Country Songs chart for five consecutive weeks with When The Sun Goes Down, his RIAA gold certified collaboration with country superstar Kenny Chesney. In 2012, Uncle Kracker released his fifth studio album, Midnight Special. According to his biography at Sugar Hill Records, Uncle Kracker believes the most powerful thing you can do is celebrate the now and the trackson Midnight Special echo that sentiment. Whether its the dumped-but-loving-the-future Nobodys Sad on a Saturday Night, the gone for the weekend In Between Disasters or the Tom Petty-feeling small town truth behind what people reveal It Is What It Is, Uncle Krackers conversational baritone cuts through the mix to put life in perspective. I laugh all day seems like, said Shafer in the biography. I think I laugh all the time. From the time I wake up til I go to bed, it seems like theres always something to laugh about! People are funny: the way they do the things they do. Things are funny. I think living is funny to be honest. With their indelible, organ-powered style, Smash Mouth has long provided the sun-dappled soundtrack to summertime fun. The Southern California-based combo has earned sales exceeding six million albums in the United States alone, fueled by a streak of unforgettable chart-topping hits including Cant Get Enough Of You, Baby, Then The Morning Comes and the No. 1 classics, Walkin On The Sun and All Star. Furthermore, the bands songs including distinctive covers like Im A Believer and Why Cant We Be Friends, performed in the inimitable Smash Mouth style have been featured in a breathtaking array of film and television programs, including The Simpsons, Cant Hardly Wait, Half Baked, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and Shrek. In 2012, the band released its sixth studio album, Magic, which features founding members Steve Harwell and Paul De Lisle at the helm. Weve got so many hits on this new record its ridiculous, said Smash Mouth lead singer Steve Harwell in a press release from Monterey International promoting the album. Produced by neophyte guitarist Mike Krompass, Magic opens the curtain on a more mature Smash Mouth. On tracks like Better With Time and Out of love, its evident how much Harwells voice has developed from the rantin-chantin approach he favored on early Smash Mouth offerings. Hes equally strong on Future Ex-Wife. Meanwhile, founding bassist Paul Delisle and long-time keyboardist Michael Klooster lay down their time-tested, solid foundation on tracks such as Shes Into Me and Perfect Planet. Newcomers Mike Krompass and Randy Cooke both shine on tracks such as The Game where we find Cooke simultaneously bone-breaking and greasygroovy.
