He fielded questions from the audience and discussed a number of national and statewide issues.Jolly addresses Chamber By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Congressman David Jolly, who represents Pinellas Countys District 13, was the guest speaker at the Seminole Chamber of Commerces Aug. 21 Business Power Luncheon at the St. Petersburg College Seminole library conference center. Jolly answered questions from attendees and touched upon a number of topics, including events that recently made national and global headlines the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley by ISIS, and the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by police in Ferguson, Missouri. Regardless of our thoughts, somebody lost their life and another person is dealing with the fact that that life was lost at their own hands, Jolly said when asked about the Ferguson shooting. Thats a tragedy. I think we all need to be very patient and let the system run its course, and ensure that due process and justice is served both for the young man and the officer. He also discussed issues that touched closer to Pinellas County including veterans access to healthcare. Earlier this summer, he co-sponsored the Veteran Access to Care Act, which he called an emergency measure and promised he would continue to focus on concerns surrounding healthcare for veterans. Its a historic crisis and I think it needs historic reforms, he said. Jolly also acknowledged the need for improved infrastructure and transportation alternatives when Pinellas County Commissioner Janet Long asked him what should be done about the states aging infrastructure. But there is no easy solution, he said, Bridge to closePark Boulevard Bridge to close for 30 days starting Sept. 29INDIAN SHORES Upgrades to the Park Boulevard Bridge will begin Monday, Sept. 29, according to Pinellas County officials. The work will require the bridge to be closed for 30 days through the end of October. The improvements will include replacing parts of the machinery that open and close the drawbridge. The U.S. Coast Guard requires the waterway to remain open to boats and for that reason the work must be done with the bridge in the upright position. Constructed in 1979, the bridge connects mainland south-central Pinellas County with the barrier islands at Indian Shores and Redington Shores. The Indian Rocks Causeway and Tom Stuart Causeway will be used as the detour routes. Signs will be placed along Park Boulevard to give motorists ample detour information, according to county officials.

It is the last three-day weekend for most until Memorial Day next year. Almost 35 million Americans are planning to take a final road trip taking them more than 50 miles away from home over the Labor Day holiday, according to AAA The Auto Club Group. AAA defines the Labor Day travel period as Thursday, Aug. 28, through Monday, Sept. 1. Labor Day travel is forecast to finish the summer with a bang, said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman. Gas prices are down and consumer spending is up, which should help generate the most travelers for Labor Day holiday since the record setting 45 million in 2008.Gas pricesCurrent gas prices are the lowest since 2010. As of Aug. 24, the See LABOR DAY, page 6A See JOLLY, page 4A Photo courtesy of PSTASPC Collegiate High School student senior Eritha Cainion talks about what the new partnership between Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and St. Petersburg College means to her during an Aug. 21 press conference at the Gibbs campus in St. Petersburg. By SUZETTE PORTERST. PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and St. Petersburg College have formed a partnership to provide a Universal Pass to provide free bus rides to students and staff. PSTA and SPC announced the news at a press conference Aug. 21 at SPCs Gibbs campus in St. Petersburg. According to Franco Ripple with Kevin Cate Communications, SPC is paying $75,000 to PSTA for a one-year contract. In exchange, more than 32,000 students and staff will be able to ride free on any of PSTAs 200 buses on 40 routes. Students, faculty and other employees can get the free rides by showing their SPC ID cards when boarding the bus. We couldnt be happier to partner with St. Petersburg College to provide their students and faculty with the transit options they needed, said PSTA Board member and Pinellas County Commissioner Janet Long in a press release. This has been a long time coming, and SPCs students and faculty now have a new way to get to class, home, work and all around Pinellas County, at no cost to them. Its great for our students, its great for our teachers and it will only get better with the improvements under Greenlight Pinellas. PSTA currently provides more than 14.5 million rides per year. It operates nearly 40 bus and trolley routes with a fleet of 203 vehicles. PSTA is asking voters to approve a new 1 percent transit tax on the Nov. 4 election ballot. The increased funding would allow the authority to implement improved transit, as outlined in Greenlight Pinellas. Visit greenlightpinellas.com for more information. Classes began at SPC Aug. 18, and the college reported that 32,350 students had signed up for 276,620 semester hours during the fall term an increase of 2.2 percent over last year. St. Petersburg College, founded in 1927, was Floridas first twoyear college. In 2002, SPC became the states first community college to offer a bachelors degree. As a consistent PSTA rider who depends on the bus system, this means so much to me, said SPC Collegiate High School student senior Eritha Cainion during the press conference. With this new partnership, it lifts the burden off the students, especially if we dont have cars. No more trying to figure out how to get a ride or pay for bus fare and we can ride seven days a week, including to the mall.VIEWPOINTSDebra SaundersWho gets to sue Al Gore? Page 15A.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, August 28, 2014spin on pop-country music. When I found out about being one of the first performers in the 2014 Music In The Park series, I felt a sense of accomplishment, Reid said in an email interview. I was very excited to hear the news because playing such a popular series has been a goal of mine for a while now. Being able to not only attend and support the other bands this year, but also perform, just immediately puts a smile on my face. I am so thankful. As a city resident, Music in the Park has had some influence in Reids own aspirations. Being a Seminole native and also a musician, this performance has definitely sparked a separate interest in performing as a whole, she said. I try to put a lot of energy into my performances, each one where I aim to get more energetic and better at working with the crowd. Id love to keep moving up the performance scale, and I surely believe this series is a nice step up. Reids first album, featuring all original songs, is due out in October. Also performing Sept. 5 will be Those Guys featuring Sean McQuiston McQuiston, a vocalist and guitar player with a penchant for playing rockabilly, is a recent participant in the Grammy Museums Music Revolution Project Tampa Bay hosted by the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts. He attends the Pinellas County Center for the Arts music magnet program at Gibbs High School. Charlie Souza and the New Tropics hit the stage on Sept. 12. Souza has worked and performed with some of the top names in the music industry, including Tom Petty and Gregg Allman. In the 1960s, he was part of The Tropics, one of the most popular pop-rock bands in the Southeastern United States. The band recorded Time, their first single, in 1968. Souza, along with Tropics co-founder Buddy Pendergrass, played in the psychodelic/glam rock band White Witch in the early 1970s. He also has toured and recorded with the New Rascals, featuring Rock and Roll Hall of Fames Dino Danelli and Gene Cornish with Bill Pascali of Vanilla Fudge. The rock and roll veteran released his solo albums Live Your Dream and Ball in the Corner Pocket on Souzaphone Records. His song Carry Me Back to St. Petersburg was selected as the city song for St. Petersburg, earning almost 13,000 votes in an online competition. Souza (bass and vocals) is joined by Todd Plant (vocals and guitar), Mike Conway (drums and vocals) and Jaybo Key (guitar and vocals). Souza still loves playing outdoor concerts in the Sunshine State. I love to play with the Florida backdrop of the beautiful palm trees, the seabirds and pelicans, the boats on the water, Souza said in an email. I love the rain and the sunshine and the puffy clouds and the grateful crowds. I wrote about it in the song Carry me Back to St. Petersburg. When asked to name some of his influences, the musician points the music of the s and s from Bob Dylan to The Rolling Stones, The Bee Gees and Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Monkees, The Rascals, Led Zeppelin and Crosby, Stills Nash and Young. But the best and most influential for me were the Beatles, Souza said. Thats probably why The Tropics went over so well because of our live show doing Beatles medleys along with our James Brown show. The Tropics have a new release out of all of the original recordings on a vinyl LP available in Europe on Guerssen Records. The album, As Times Gone, is distributed in the United States by Forced Exposure. The Charlie Morris Band will bring the blues to Seminole this year, performing Sept. 19. Born in Miami in 1963, Morris began writing songs and playing instruments at age 6. It wasnt until he was 15, however, that he picked up the guitar. Morris went to Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, earning a bachelors degree in 1984. He and fellow Eckerd students including Alan Craig, Devin Rice, Sue Finger and Dave Bawel formed the band Lotus. The band released an album of original music in 1984. He next joined a band called Cheers, playing cruise ships, before returning to St. Petersburg to play the Florida club circuit as a solo artist or as part of a band. During the early 1990s, he appeared at some of the states best blues clubs such as The Ringside, Skippers Smokehouse, the Bamboo Room and the Bradfordville Blues Club. Beginning in 1992, Morris and his band began building a fan following in Europe. In 1998, he released his first blues CD, Bluer Than Thou, featuring 10 original selections as well as one by pianist Gary Doyle. The album includes such future classics as Mr. Miracle, Cant Stop Cleanin and No Mo Money. Voices of Jazz based in Dunedin, plays Sept. 26. The band boasts a big band sound and performs classic big band jazz as well as swing music and modern arrangements of popular tunes. The bands members are engaging and energetic volunteers who participate purely for the love of music, the enjoyment of playing their instruments and their passion for performing. Band members are from Pinellas and Hillsborough counties. We perform regularly throughout Pinellas County most notably Safety Harbors Third Friday Music Series at Caf Orlando, Ron Scarcelli said in an email. Scarcelli is president of Voices of Jazz. We also have performed at the Dunedin Recreation Center, Gulfport Casino Ballroom and at Treasure Islands Sanding Ovations. Comfort Zone will perform Oct. 3. This band specializes in tight vocal harmonies. Based in Treasure Island, the act got its start as a vocal trio in 2009. With the addition of a rhythm section boasting seasoned professionals, the Pinellas band has made a name for itself covering classic hits by The Temptations, Tommy James & the Shondells or The Eagles as well as performing some of todays favorites from acts such as Little Big Town and Lady Antebellum. D.A. Smith and the Soul Injectors closes out the Music in the Park series with an evening of funk, soul and R&B on Oct. 10. D.A. Smith & The Soul Injectors are quickly gaining recognition as one of the premier and energetic live performance acts in the Tampa Bay area and beyond. This nine-piece soul band is known for delivering a high-energy show filled with original material, dance music from the s Motown and Stax records era and big hits from s soul and funk superstars. The band also has a reputation for tossing in a few contemporary hit songs, played in their own distinctive style.

Congressfailed to come up with a long-term solution in recent months, he added, and the reason is: how do we pay for it? Does it require an increase in the federal fuel tax? We need to have an adult conversation on long-term budget reforms.Several audience members commended Jolly on his support for Pinellas County beach renourishment, an issue hes pushed for federal support of since taking office in March. He was able to include the ongoing beach renourishment project in Treasure Island in this springs revised Water Resources Reform and Development Act. But hell need to continue to make a solid and vocal case for beach renourishment, he said. He hopes eventually it will be a regular budget item and not something that will be debated every few years. Beach renourishment is an issue that does not have support of the majority of Congress, he said. Even within my own caucus thats where the hardest fights happen. Its the same with flood insurance. So thats where I have a responsibility.

The only other tropical system being monitored by the National Hurricane Center is too far away to be a threat even if it does become a tropical storm or hurricane.Increase in consumer spendingAAA points to the increase in consumer spending as another factor prompting Americans to travel this year. Spending is expected to increase 3.8 percent year-over-year in the third quarter, AAAs experts say. Disposable income is only expected to go up by 1.4 percent; therefore, more Americans are likely to use credit cards to pay for holiday travel. This year, Americans are more optimistic about their financial situation, Jenkins said. Consumer spending continues to outpace disposable income, indicating that Americans are comfortable using their credit cards to finance one last summer vacation this year. While travelers save on gas, theyll likely pay about 6 to 9 percent more for lodging. Prices at AAA rated lodgings range from an average of $171 to $125. Cost of car rentals is about the same as last year, averaging $51. Airfare is up about 2 percent, but 1 percent more are expected to fly this year. About 1.5 million Floridians will travel by auto for Labor Day, according to AAA. Nearly, 132,000 are expected to fly and about 88,000 will use other transportation.AAAs travel projections are based on economic forecasting and research by IHS Global Insight.Labor Day safetyAs people prepare to celebrate, local law enforcement will be making plans to take to the roadways and waterways. They will be looking for people operating vehicles or boats while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They will be looking for speeders, red-light runners and aggressive drivers. Everyone is urged to wear a seat belt. Dont forget the life jacket when out on the water. LABOR DAY, from page 1A By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County beaches remain free of red tide, according to the latest report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. In a report released Aug. 22, two samples collected in the county contained background concentrations of Karenia Brevis, the scientific name for Florida red tide. One sample was collected offshore 25 miles west of Madeira Beach. The second sample was collected alongshore at Mullet Key, Bay Pier. Background levels mean that the samples contained 1,000 cells or less of the organism. Red tide was not detected in any other samples collected in the county. No effects from red tide are expected in the local area. FWC has been monitoring a large offshore red tide bloom in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. Satellite images from theNo red tide bloom found in PinellasOnly background traces of the organism detected in recent water samples Graphic courtesy of FWCSatellite photos from the Optical Oceanography Laboratory show the red tide bloom in the northeast Gulf of Mexico. The hot colors (red, orange and yellow) represent the bloom area. The gray is cloud cover. Pinellas County is not in range of the bloom.Optical Oceanography Laboratory at the University of South Florida show a patchy bloom up to 60 miles wide and 90 miles long, remaining at least 20 miles offshore between Dixie and northern Pinellas counties. No bloom concentrations of red tide have been detected alongshore or inshore of any of the areas (water) samples, FWC said in all its recent reports. The bloom in the northeast Gulf of Mexico is expected to move south and slightly away from the coast for the next several days, according to the Collaboration for Prediction of Red Tide. Fish kills and respiratory irritation has been reported in the area where the bloom is located. No fish kills or other problems have been reported in Pinellas. Florida Red Tide produces a brevetoxin that can kill fish, birds and marine mammals; cause health problems for humans; and adversely affect local economies, according to the information from the Florida Wildlife Research Institute. County newsAnother round of water maintenance comingThe method of water treatment for Pinellas County and its wholesale customers will be temporarily modified between Tuesday, Sept. 2, and Thursday, Sept. 25. The second of two short-term changes from chloramine to chlorine disinfection this year is a routine maintenance measure designed to optimize water quality. Those impacted include Pinellas County water customers as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor and Tarpon Springs. This disinfection program is designed to maintain distribution system water quality and minimize the potential for any future problem. There have been no indications of significant bacteriological contamination problems in the system. The water will continue to meet federal and state standards for safe drinking water. Kidney dialysis patients should not be impacted, but should contact their dialysis care provider for more information about chlorine treatment. Fish owners should not be affected if they already have a system in place to remove chloramines, but should contact local pet suppliers with any questions. Customers may notice a slight difference in taste and odor of the water during this temporary change in treatment. Chlorine was used as the primary disinfectant in the water for more than 50 years prior to 2002. Many communities using chloramine convert back to chlorine for a short period to maintain system water quality. Pinellas County switched to chloramine in 2002 to ensure compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. The first shortterm change from chloramine to chlorine disinfection this year ran from May 27 to June 16. See COUNTY NEWS, page 7A

Pinellas County Commissioners, sitting as the Emergency Medical Services Authority, unanimously approved a master agreement Aug. 19 with 17 municipalities and fire districts to provide advanced life support first responder service in the next fiscal year. They also unanimously approved a resolution with revised criteria for figuring out reasonable and customary cost of EMS providers. The providers rejected a previous plan to change how costs were distributed. County Administrator Mark Woodard thanked staff for work done to resolve the conflict and control EMS costs. There is a positive indicator that all parties will take this back to their respective councils and come back one by one (with approval), Woodard said. The city of Largo approved its agreement Aug. 19. In a memo to commissioners, Interim Chief of Staff Bruce Moeller said the resolution would level the playing field for all EMS providers. The cost components mirror the EMS cost components that have been allowed for the cities of Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg since the early s, he said. Good job! said Commission Chair Karen Seel. We should all stand up and cheer. Commissioner Norm Roche agreed that the work staff had done to defuse what had been a volatile situation was good, but we should not rest on our laurels. We need to keep moving forward, he said, adding that managing cost of EMS would be a longtime challenge. Woodard said the new contract would provide fiscal sustainability. It should keep the (EMS) millage constant through the end of the decade, he said. It levels the playing field. We treat each partner as uniformly as possible. Commissioner John Morroni praised Woodard and Moeller for their work and declared it to be Woodards first great accomplishment as county administrator. Excellent, excellent work done, Seel added. Im very proud of where we are. I look forward to continuing the dialogue. In related business, the EMS Authority approved changes to boundaries of two EMS districts. Upon request by the town of Kenneth City, it will become part of the Lealman district. The city of Pinellas Park, which provides service in Kenneth City, has agreed with the change. Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District will get back a portion of its territory taken away in 2010. PSF&RD provides service to the mainland in the Oakhurst area. In 2010, the county revised the district boundaries, giving Seminole Fire Rescue a piece that had been served by Suncoast. The Aug. 20 vote returns the boundaries to pre-2010. The countys designated EMS districts include East Lake Fire and Rescue District, Gulfport, Madeira Beach, Oldsmar, Palm Harbor Fire and Rescue District, Pinellas Suncoast Fire and Rescue District, St. Pete Beach, South Pasadena, Tierra Verde Fire District (including Fort DeSoto) and Treasure Island. Designated Emergency Medical Districts include Clearwater and the Clearwater Fire District; Dunedin and the Dunedin Fire District; Largo and the Largo Fire District, serving Highpoint Fire District, Belleair, Belleair Bluffs and Belleair Bluffs Fire District; Lealman Fire District and Kenneth City; Pinellas Park and Pinellas Park Fire District; Safety Harbor and Safety Harbor Fire District; St. Petersburg and a portion of the Highpoint Fire District and Gandy Fire District; and Tarpon Springs and Tarpon Springs Fire District. The towns of Redington Beach, Redington Shores and North Redington Beach have interlocal agreements with Seminole and Madeira Beach for fire and rescue service. The EMS Authority created a Redington Beaches Emergency Medical Services District to be served by Seminole and Madeira Beach. In final business, the EMS Authority approved the reappointment of Chris Arbutine Sr., Doug Bevis and Travis Palladeno as mayors council representatives to the Emergency Medical Services Advisory Board. Phillip Nicotera was reappointed as the representative for St. Petersburg College. Gayle Guidash was reappointed as the representative for the Pinellas County Health Department. Amber Boulding was appointed as an alternative representative for the health department. Anne Scofield and Scott Kuebler were reappointed as citizen representatives. All appointees serve two-year terms.

The notice is not a bill. The tax collector mails the bills Oct. 31. The TRIM notice is a notification to property owners of the proposed value of their property, the proposed millage rates set by taxing authorities, whether an exemption is in place, and the proposed property taxes they will see on their property tax bill this year. The mailing of this document marks the official time-period during which property owners have the opportunity to discuss, or even appeal, the value or exemption status of their property, as well as to offer input into the county or municipal budget hearings. Mailed with the Notice is a TRIM Guide, a newsletter that explains each component of the notice and provides answers to frequently asked questions. For more information about the TRIM Notice, or if you own property but do not receive the notice by the end of August, call the Pinellas County Property Appraisers office at 727-464-3207 or visit at www.pcpao.org.

PETERSBURG The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority announced that the agency is on track to save Pinellas taxpayers nearly $3 million this year, according to financial projections released Aug. 1. Thanks to sound financial management and savings from overtime reductions and personnel vacancies, insurance savings and fuel cost savings, PSTA projects its total Fiscal Year 2014 expenses will come in more than $3 million under budget. When adjusted for projected revenue, the net savings to taxpayers will be just over $2.6 million. Delivering world-class transit service while delivering savings to our taxpayers is what we strive to do, as responsible stewards of the publics money, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. As one of Americas lowest-cost and most efficient public transit agencies, we are always looking for ways to do more with less. Those efforts are really bearing fruit this year with almost $3 million saved across the board. The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority is the public transit provider for Pinellas County, providing more than 14.4 million rides per year. PSTA operates nearly 40 bus and trolley routes with a fleet of 203 vehicles. More information is available at www.PSTA.net. COUNTY NEWS, from page 6A

The report shows that 589,300 visitors stayed overnight during the month of June up from 562,800 in 2013. The economic impact was more than $720.5 million, an 8 percent increase. Occupancy at the countys lodging accommodations was 80.4 percent in June compared to 76.6 percent in 2013. The average daily rate was $123.15 up from $114.87 last year. Revenue per room was $99.01 compared to $87.99 in 2013. June continues the upward trend enjoyed by the countys tourism industry. From January through June, more than 3.2 million visited Pinellas, compared to just over 3 million for the same period in 2013. They spent more than $2.4 billion, up from in excess of $2.2 billion last year an increase of 8.8 percent. Occupancy rates often referred to as heads in beds by local officials have outpaced 2013 every month for the first six months of 2014. More families are visiting this year, 48.8 percent of visitors compared to 44.2 percent last year. Declines were recorded for couples traveling without children and singles. More than 60 percent took a plane with the majority flying in to Tampa International, 56.8 percent. Just over 8 percent arrived at the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport, which also is enjoying a record season. The airport reported an increase in passengers of 19 percent in July and a 22 percent year-to-date increase over 2013. The majority of travelers used Allegiant Air, which recently announced the addition three more non-stop flights to the 32 already offered. Allegiant will begin service to Concord, North Carolina Nov. 13; Belleville, Illinois Nov. 19; and Bloomington, Illinois Nov. 21. Clearwater Marine Aquarium continues to see an increase with 16.1 percent of visitors taking a trip to the attraction compared to 11.5 percent in 2013. Fort De Soto saw a slight uptick in traffic, 8.8 percent of visitors compared to 8.4 percent last year. Tarpon Springs recorded slightly fewer visits thus far this year, 6.9 percent in 2013 compared to 6.6 in 2014. In June, the top ranked feeder market was Tampa-St. Petersburg. A feeder market is the area from which hotel guests originate. The countys second ranked feeder market was New York followed by the Greater Orlando Area, then Chicago, Atlanta and Philadelphia. A survey of visitors to the area shows continued satisfaction with 97.3 percent saying they were satisfied with their trip to Pinellas so far in 2014 up from 95.7 percent last year.Search for a new directorCounty Administration Mark Woodard updated the TDC about the search for a new director of the Convention Visitor Bureau.

Next, you hear sirens wailing. What should you do? Weve all been in this situation, yet many times we dont know exactly what to do. During a normal shift, Sunstar Paramedics EMTs and paramedics see people react to emergency response vehicles in many different ways. Its important to do your part in preventing another accident or becoming a victim yourself when an emergency vehicle comes your way. With that in mind, here are six tips to help prepare you for these situations: 1. If its safe to do so, pull over to the closest curb, either right or left. Unlike some other states, Florida law allows drivers to pull to the closest curb, whether to the right or left, to make way for an emergency vehicle. Well often see drivers in the left lane trying to cut all the way over to the right shoulder, instead of pulling to the closest curb. Since many Florida drivers arent aware they can pull to the left in this situation, make sure there is space between you and the vehicle behind you. 2. Respect the Move Over Law. If an emergency vehicle is stopped along the side of the road, you should move over one full lane. And if you cant get over safely, slow down to 20 miles per hour below the speed limit. Drivers caught not adhering to this law will receive a citation. 3. Dont get distracted by whats going on in the emergency situation. Put down your cell phone and make sure you can hear whats happening around you. Keep one window open, if you have to, and lower your radio volume to a manageable level. Be alert to other emergency vehicles that may be responding to the same incident. Then, as you pass the situation, dont be distracted by roadside activity. 4. Follow safe driving practices. If you cant find a safe place to pull over, stay in your lane, and slowly come to a stop until the emergency vehicle passes you. Dont do anything that you wouldnt normally do when driving, such as going through an intersection when the light is red. If an emergency vehicle operator needs you to do something, they will direct you. 5. Dont panic. People tend to freeze when they see flashing lights or hear a siren. If this happens to you and panic sets in, slow down, take a deep breath, and look for the closest curb to pull over safely. Its better to take a few seconds to look around before making a move, than to make an ill-advised move out of haste. And use your turn signals to let others know your intentions. 6. Never try to pass an emergency vehicle or speed up to stay ahead of it. Dont try to out run an emergency response vehicle to avoid stopping or pulling over, and dont speed up trying to keep distance between you and an emergency vehicle behind you. Just pull over. Pedestrians and bicyclists also need to safely make way for emergency vehicles. Dont try to run across the street to beat an ambulance or police vehicle. Move back a safe distance from the roadway in case another driver panics and loses control of their vehicle.Charlene Cobb, Community Outreach Coordinator for Sunstar Paramedics, has been a Paramedic, Training Officer, Education Coordinator and Community Education Specialist in her career.

They strolled together along a thoroughfare popular with their kind. Except for them, the streets were empty. Or so we thought. Their pace said they were not going anywhere in particular. Its steady rhythm, first calming and then hypnotic, matched the breathing of someone who was falling asleep. Indeed, local lady FM and her strapping 6-year-old son Fennel were falling into a nice doze. Being dolphins, they kept swimming, but went slower and slower as they succumbed to the luxury of a nap. Suddenly, Fennel startled as if goosed poked from behind by some unseen force. It was the maritime version of falling out of bed. Being a dolphin, Fennel lurched forward in the water with a big splash. Awake now, he and his mother vanished beneath the waves. When they surfaced again, there were now three instead of two dolphins. The third was the big bull Xiphos. He had snuck up behind the dozing pair and goosed the lad to wake them up! The bull has personality. Named for the Greek word for sword, Xiphos gives us a glimpse of the personalities of free-ranging dolphins. The idea of dolphin personalities is both alien and acceptable, depending on your perspective. Animal lovers know perfectly well that animals have personality. The idea that this is debated in some circles is laughable to them (regretful though that laughter might be). On the other hand, animal scientists are warned to avoid the topic of animal personality. We cannot scientifically measure the rich and personal nuances of animal behavior that create personality because animals neither take surveys nor give interviews. (Notable exceptions are the amazing apes who use American Sign Language: Koko the gorilla, Kanzi the bonobo and Chantek the orangutan.) Yet those scientific walls of Jericho (discounting animal personality) are tumbling down. We are freer to talk now. Let me tell you about Xiphos the goosing dolphin. Xiphos is his own man. He first appeared in the study area that Capt. John Heidemann and I monitor under federal permit in May of 2012. Bull-like, he was shadowing a small group of hunting moms and cavorting calves. Capt. Heidemann and I only had two clues that he was there: occasional glimpses of a large dolphin dorsal fin in the distance and a sudden drawing together of the moms to their calves to form a tight group. We cannot suggest that Xiphos is prudent. But we can say that he was well-versed in the discreet ways of dolphins who are new to an area already inhabited by resident dolphins. Xiphos behaved this way toward groups of resident dolphins for the next four months with one notable exception. The exception was in late May. Dolphin Watch reported Xiphos remarkable demonstration with a large fish for local bulls N and Riptab. For many minutes, Xiphos handled the fish in a highly stylized way, with N and Riptab as his riveted audience. Many animals display for many reasons. The other animals watch and judge the displayer (for example, this is how females choose with whom to mate). We inferred that the point of Xiphos orchestrated display was to establish himself among local bulls. If I was not afraid of banishment from the animal behavior scientific community, I would admit that I thought Xiphos showed the kind of cool self-confidence we celebrate in celebrity George Clooney. Xiphos display apparently worked. Xiphos stayed in local waters for six months. By the fall, he was swimming with local dolphins. The following spring, Xiphos was again in the company of resident dolphins. It looked for a while that he was working on another quite remarkable campaign to bond with local bull Schnoz. Named for the nose-like extension as his identifying dorsal fin pattern, Schnoz is among the largest and most dominant of local bulls. Unlike the majority of mature bulls in our local waters, Schnoz has never had a bond with another bull (an adult male alliance) in the 10 years that we have studied him. Thus it was a pleasant surprise to see Xiphos and Schnoz traveling together for the summer. That fall, Xiphos and Schnoz expressed their bond with an extensive display of obvious affection. Afterwards, Xiphos left the area for many months. He came back this spring without Schnozs company but is again busy roaming and goosing. Yes, Xiphos continues his goosey ways. Just a month after young Fennel was goosed out of his nap, Q and her current calf Qody were searching the shallows off a mangrove isle. As we approached, they came together and swung over to the boat in the manner of dolphins greeting a familiar face. Their unhurried cruise alongside us was abruptly interrupted when Qody startled as if goosed poked from behind by some unseen force. Being a dolphin, Qody lurched forward in a flurry with a big splash. Yep, it was Xiphos! He had once again snuck up from behind to join fellow schoolmates.

Detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit said the funds were discovered missing during an internal audit and a report of the suspected theft was made to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Mathis reportedly utilized direct deposit to deposit the funds into her personal bank account. Mathis utilized the stolen funds for personal gain to include leisure activities and monthly expenses.

PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives arrested a former teacher Monday, Aug. 18, for unlawful sexual activity with a minor. According to the sheriffs report, detectives began their investigation on July 22, after it was discovered that the suspect and a 16-year-old student were having an inappropriate relationship. Detectives say that Elisha Joy Kingsley, 39, of St. Petersburg befriended the victim while she was a teacher at a private school in St. Petersburg. The suspect and the victim began texting each other via a phone application in mid-June. The two then began to meet up at various locations throughout Pinellas County. On or around July 5, the victim and the suspect engaged in sexual activity at an undisclosed location. Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit arrested Kingsley Aug. 18. She was released on $20,000 bond the same day. Since Kingsley is a former teacher and had frequent contact with children, detectives say there could be other victims. Anyone with information on this investigation or other potential victims, is asked to contact Detective J. Stibbard with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Crimes Against Children Unit at 727582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS orwww.crimestop persofpinellas.org.

Photo by BRIAN GOFFPuff-N-FluffYoung IRB inventors dog dryer wins her recognition By BRIAN GOFFINDIAN ROCKS BEACH A sense of purpose and determination is what a young IRB inventor says is necessary to successfully invent something. Marissa Streng, 12, is the inventor of the PuffNFluff, a device to help dry off dogs after their bath. Streng said it was borne out of necessity. Our dog didnt like being wet after his bath, and we didnt like that wet dog smell all over the house, she said. So she came up with a suit that goes on the dog and allows warm air from a regular home hair dryer to blow through the suit and all over the dog. It only takes from 15 to 25 minutes from start to finish, she said. There are draw strings to keep it in place around the neck and tail and Velcro to keep it on along the body. The Puff-N-Fluff has been manufactured and is already in stores. It took determination to get this far. It began with Streng enlisting the help of her mom, Sharon. We went upstairs to the sewing machine and made the prototype, she said. Im really happy and excited that it worked, but if it didnt wed keep trying until it did work. The whole thing began as a third grade science project for Streng. Her Puff-N-Fluff passed the test but it didnt stop there. Our science teacher submitted it to a contest being run at USF. I ended up winning my age division, she said. They say much begets more, and thats what happened to Streng and her invention. Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show were having a segment on young inventors who had been patented and they gave me a call, she said. I was on Fallons opening week and I got a prize of $5,000 in a contest sponsored by General Electric. As for meeting Fallon himself, Streng said it was a pleasant experience. Jimmy Fallon is very kind and made me feel warm and not nervous, she said. It was amazing. All that didnt happen because a 12-yearold girl had a good idea. It happened because of a lot of hard work. Marissas mother Sharon said there was plenty of heavy lifting to do to get this far. It costs thousands of dollars to patent anything, she said. Although it was a lot easier than we thought; once Marissa won the award at USF, their patent people helped us through the procedure to get a patent of our own. It made things a lot easier. Then came the task of getting the product to market, into stores and marketing the Puff-N-Fluff. The hard part about that is that it is such a different item, she said. You almost need to see a video of it to understand how it works. Since the Fallon show we have 150 of them on Amazon but thats about it. We havent put a lot of time or money into marketing; it is hard to do. Still, said her mother, the experience has been invaluable for Marissa. Were extremely proud of her. The nice thing about this is shes learning something that you arent taught in school, she said. She has gone to all the meetings with the manufacturers; shes picked out the colors and talked about what had to be done. She has learned about expenses and marketing, she has had to get up to speak at meetings, it is a priceless education. It is one thing to invent something that people will like. But in this case more than people have to like it; the dogs have to like it too. That doesnt seem to be a problem however if Marissas Pug dog Mojo is any indication. The first time we tried it on him he was like, what are you putting on me, she said. But he quickly got used to the warm air circulating around him. Most dogs are like that; they calm down once they start to get warm. Since that first time Mojo apparently is a fan of the Puff-N-Fluff. We use it every time he has a bath, she said. He now waits for us to lay it out then he walks right into it. Once it is on he normally lies down and just enjoys it. If a product is that well-received by its primary customers then its inventor would seem to have a good future. At least thats what Marissas mom hopes. I hope she is a young inventor in the making and I hope she realizes she can create things and believe in herself and a product and get it going, she said.Marissa Streng with her dog Mojo wrapped up in the Puff-N-Fluff and ready to get dried off.

Pinellas Park native serves aboard USS FordBy LT. J.G. JENNIFER CUNNINGHAMPINELLAS PARK A Pinellas Park native and 1999 Gibbs Senior High School graduate is serving in the U.S. Navy as part of a handpicked crew charged with bringing the Navys newest aircraft carrier into service. Petty Officer First Class Jack Bain, who enlisted 15 years ago, is an aviation ordnance man aboard Pre-Commissioning Unit Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78), the first ship in its class and the successor to the Navys Nimitzclass aircraft carriers that have been in operation for the last half century. Bain, the first in his immediate family to join the Navy, and the rest of the 1,000-Sailor crew are slowly bringing the ship to life, a crew that will eventually grow to more than 4,500 when the ship is at sea. When complete, the aircraft carrier, powered by two nuclear reactors, will measure more than three football fields long at 1,092 feet in length and will weigh more than 100,000 tons. It will be capable of sailing at nearly 35 mph and will carry more than 75 Navy aircraft. Petty Officer Bain plays a vital role in preparing our Nations newest and most technologically advanced warship for sea, said Fords Commanding Officer, Capt. John F. Meier. We have the opportunity to build this command with the ideals of our namesake and we are creating the command climate and a culture of excellence that we have always wanted. This crew is setting that standard, a standard that will last for the 50-plus year life of the ship. As one of the sailors who will commission the ship, Bain has the opportunity to see firsthand the innovations being incorporated into the design of the ship; from a redesigned flight deck to allow for more efficient aircraft operations to equipment that requires less maintenance. As the crew grows and works toward the goal of joining the fleet in 2016, Bain and other Gerald R. Ford sailors will be accepting spaces on the ship, training to operate it and building a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes. Training for the crew has to come from some unique sources. There are no Navy schools for some of the new equipment, so the crew is partnering with Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipbuilding and other vendors to master the new systems. This is a unique opportunity to see first-hand how the systems are installed and tested, which is an advantage that future crews wont have an opportunity to experience, said Meier. Petty Officer Bain and his shipmates are becoming the subject matter experts. They are working hand in hand with the shipyard throughout the testing phase and in turn teaching the Navy how to operate this new class of aircraft carriers. Bain said it is an exciting time to be in the Navy, helping to build a crew and a ship from scratch, something he never expected to be doing just a couple years ago. He also said he is proud of the work he is doing to help commission and man the Navys newest aircraft carrier. As a 34 year old with numerous responsibilities, Bain said he is learning about himself as a leader, sailor and a person. The Navy has done a lot of great things for me, said Bain. For example, its helped me become more of a leader. We have an awesome team here [on the Ford]. Everyone here is supportive of everyone. Bain adds he is ready to accept the sacrifices the Navy and his country are asking him to make. This humbling reward is being a part of something much bigger than he ever expected. Like the Nimitz-class aircraft carriers that came before it, USS Gerald R. Fords mission is to protect and defend America on the worlds oceans. When the ship deploys it will bring 4-anda-half acres of survivable, sovereign U.S. territory, increasing the Navys strike capability and defending the countrys interests in any region of the world. The ship is scheduled to be commissioned in spring 2016.Photo courtesy of NAVY OFFICE OF COMMUNITY OUTREACHPetty Officer First Class Jack Bain, a Pinellas Park native who enlisted 15 years ago, is an aviation ordnance man aboard Pre-Commissioning Unit Gerald R.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, August 28, 2014When Al-Jazeera bought Current TV for $500 million in January 2013, former Vice President Al Gore, who co-founded Current, praised the deal. Both Al-Jazeera, a network owned by Qatars oil-rich royal family, and his far-left Current TV, Gore said, were founded to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling. Last week, Gore and Current TV shareholders sued Al-Jazeera for fraud because, Gore attorney David Boies told reporters, AlJazeera America wants to give itself a discount on the purchase price that was agreed to nearly two years ago. The dispute raises the question: Can oil and sanctimony mix? After he lost the White House, Gore resumed his role as anti-global-warming activist in the film An Inconvenient Truth. As a senator, Gore wrote the 1992 book Earth in the Balance, in which he argued that global warming represented such a dire threat that only a wrenching transformation of society could spare the planet, such as a government mandate to eliminate the internal-combustion engine in a 25-year period. Its almost 25 years later, and the wrenching transformation instead seems to be that Gore and company cannot get enough Middle East oil money. Liberal fans of Current TV, you got used. Launched in 2005, Current TV provided safe landing for current and former Democratic politicians. In the past few years, the network hired former Democratic Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, former Democratic New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, who apparently had no trouble juggling two jobs. Alas, the viewing public did not tune in to watch current and former Democratic politicians pontificate like politicians. About 31,000 viewers were tuning in daily. Current TV nonetheless was worth millions because cable and satellite companies granted the network access to some 40 million households. And why was that? New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter credited Gore with pushing cable and satellite providers to include his untested network through a combination of personal lobbying and arm-twisting of industry giants. When cable bigs such as Time Warner started to squawk about dropping the barely watched Current TV, Gore and company sold their lefty investment to Al-Jazeera. After the deal was announced, you might think that Gore would have chosen to modulate his criticism of the oil industry, given his personal debt to Qatar crude. Wrong. That month, Gore went on NBCs Today to promote his book The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change. In the book, Gore wrote, Virtually every news and political commentary program on television is sponsored in part by oil, coal and gas companies as if thats a bad thing. Gore told host Matt Lauer its wrong to criticize him, because Al-Jazeera is a really distinguished and effective news-gathering organization. Now Al-Jazeera America has even fewer viewers 17,000 during prime time nightly than Current TV. And lawyers are involved. So Al Gore and company are suing AlJazeera for fraud. But who gets to sue Gore?Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sf chronicle.com.I give a few hundred bucks to worthy causes each year. I should give more, I suppose. Maybe one day I will. Id probably increase my donations somewhat if the fundraisers were more skillful or ingratiating at their jobs.A fundraisers first job, as I see it, is not to alienate his/her prospect at the very outset of the contact. But this fact seems to escape many of the groups that get in touch with me. One way to lose my gift is to assign the phone call to a person whose foreign accent is so pronounced I cant understand what he/she is saying. I have little prejudice against Pakistanis, Hispanics, Saudis, Filipinos or other overseas groups. But I become apoplectic when the fundraisers command of English is so lousy I have no hope of understanding what he or she is saying. Another turn-off is to be assaulted by some underpaid hireling reading in a monotonous, sing-song voice from a printed script in a steam room. As soon as I interrupt to ask a simple question such as Who do you work for? the hireling begins to stammer in confusion. He/she has obviously not been trained to handle anything not on the script. This triggers my doubt that he even knows or cares about the organization hes representing. Pressure tactics also will cause me to hang up immediately. Earlier today I got a phone call from a fundraiser who said he represents a veterans group Ive never heard of. I asked him to send me some literature, so that I could check on his credentials. Before he agreed to do that, he asked me to promise Id give a donation no matter what. I gave him a quick click, instead. I dont like appeals from outfits who say theyre strapped for money, but who nevertheless stuff their mailers with six pages of backup oratory. All that paper was once healthy trees. All that ink, plus the postage, costs money that could be used elsewhere. Dishonesty in fund-raising is rampant. Among the worst are the TV evangelists. Not all of them, but most of them. We will all grow old and die before we hear a TV preacher say this: Please send me as much money as you can, and right away. If you dont, I wont be able to afford my Rolls-Royce and my mansion in the Smokies. Ill have to find honest work, instead of strutting and ranting and scolding in front of millions of gullible TV viewers who mistake me for a Christian instead of the money-grubbing con artist that I am. Instead (and Ive beaten this drum before) these pious scammers will talk about seeds. Thats another term for money. Brother, the seed you plant today will become a mighty oak tomorrow. So send in your seed ($500 would be a good beginning) and before long youll have your own Cadillac and a chalet outside Gatlinburg. Even the causes I support irritate me with their fund-raising techniques. I send PBS an occasional buck or two, but I always feel like enclosing a note saying, Please use this contribution to shorten the sales pitches made by those snazzy society matrons who interrupt your otherwise excellent TV productions every half-hour to explain in extravagant detail how much we should support PBS. As I wrote that last paragraph, my phone rang. It was a phone company. It didnt ask for a cash gift. Instead, it wanted me to listen for eight minutes while they tell me why I should sign a two-year contract that includes phone, TV, texting, the Internet, movie streaming, Twittering and conscious contact with God. All of this in return for only a fifth of my annual income during the next six months, after which you can bet that rates will sharply rise. It used to be that fundraisers were happy for a single, one-time gift from us. The latest trend is to encourage our agreeing to a monthly donation to be automatically deducted from our bank account or charged to our credit card. Presumably forever. In this election year, the political parties are in full cry for funding. Their tone is now approaching desperation. My friend Leilani, a lifelong liberal, is being hounded via daily emails from Joe Biden and other Democratic sources. Their intensity has quadrupled since Republicans began threatening to impeach President Obama. The Democrats know this is unlikely to happen, but their fundraisers have jumped on the impeachment horse and intend to ride it all the way to Election Day. Most fund-raising techniques are unimaginative, but not always. The latest ploy is to dump buckets of ice-cold water on the heads of prospective donors, in an attempt to have them donate money to victims of, and research on, Lou Gehrigs disease. My question: If I agree to send in a check, will you promise NOT to pour water on my noggin?Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Again, thank you for sharing this personal experience so that many people may see that we are people just like them. L.J. Wood DunedinWhat a deal for city managerEditor: I read in the paper this morning that the Seminole City Council voted 6-0 to retain the city manager for another 8 months. That certainly is their prerogative and may be the right decision given the negotiations on the Mall. However, I think it was not a good use of taxpayers monies to grant him one week of vacation for every month worked. What a deal. Given the eight months he will have worked, he would have had two months off. Come on, lets get real here. Roney Sorensen Seminole Council member: Let voters decide the issueEditor: It has been interesting to see the letters both praising and lambasting the Seminole City Councils vote on the Greenlight Pinellas plan. I encourage those folks who prefer to speak with knowledge on the issue to watch our July 8 meeting via the citys website, my seminole.com. The council does not lack understanding of the plan. They do, however, know that Websters defines to endorse as to publicly or officially say that you support or approve something or someone. As we are a representative body, it would be inappropriate to suggest that all of our constituents support the plan by approving the resolution. In fact, the majority of messages we received were against the project. The Greenlight plan is an approved referendum on the November ballot. We chose to let the voters decide this issue without prejudicing them by approving the resolution. Perhaps those chastising us would have us follow the slippery slope and begin endorsing candidates for office, or maybe just let the council decide all elections for them? No, that would be antithetical to the founding theory of this great nation. None of the Seminole City Council members spoke against mass transit in Seminole or Pinellas County, nor against improvements to the PSTA bus service as some have alleged. We simply opted to let the American Democratic process take place where it belongs, in the voting booth. Chris Burke Seminole City CouncilLack of accountability in SeminoleEditor: I could not attend the Aug. 12, 2014, council meeting due to a work-related out-of-state trip. I appreciate the good work which Manager Edmunds has done for our city and with him I have always comported myself with respect. Edmunds leadership includes the responsibility to answer taxpayers questions. The problem lies with his unwillingness to provide answers to serious questions. His choice is contrary to open and transparent government. Public requests for information require answers. Every taxpayer should be alarmed when their City Council actually passes a motion, July 8, 2014, which allows the city Manager to avoid questions. This gives carte blanche to our manager to dodge any questions which he claims not in the best interest and/or necessary and/or beneficial to the city. Negative attention has been drawn to our city because of this lack of accountability. This has prompted a groundswell of community members contacting me to persist in getting my questions answered, and also their asking of new questions. As Edmunds continues his job in Seminole, I will continue mine. If no answers are forthcoming, I have no choice but to seek answers through legal means. I respect the office of city manager, but we all need to respect and abide by the laws, which provide the charter for our city. Patricia Plantamura Seminole City CouncilorAmount of product per dollar is getting smallerEditor: My ice cream comes in containers of only 1 and a half quarts, instead of full half gallons. They say, At least we didnt raise the price. My sugar comes in 4-pound bags, instead of 5-pound bags, now. They say, At least we didnt raise the price. Now, my generic, store-brand, rough-on-the-backside, wood-chipladen toilet paper is being manufactured in a thinner width, thus less paper per roll. The previous rolls of this type toilet paper were 450 2-ply sheets at 4.5 inches by 4 inches. The new rolls of toilet paper are now 473 2ply sheets at 4 inches by 4 inches, supposedly coming in at 52.5 square feet. I did the math. The supposed 23 extra sheets on the new roll do not make up for the significant amount of product they shaved off the outside edge of the roll. Good thing is, they keep saying: At least we didnt raise the price. Scott V. Morton Largo We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

Much to their amazement, their shop, located at 11025 Gulf Blvd., had been selected as the No. 3 ice cream shop in the country, according to a poll of customers on the travel website TripAdvisor. We didnt even know there was a poll taking place, said Diane. We didnt hear anything about it from TripAdvisor. But when given the chance to vote for the nations best ice cream parlors in July during National Ice Cream Month, the Nulls business got a lot of attention from their former customers. Super Scoops finished third behind Island Creamery, Chincoteague Island, Virginia; and Dietsch Brothers Inc., Findlay, Ohio. Finishing fourth in the balloting was Woodside Farm Creamery, Hockessin, Delaware; followed by A Better Scoop, Englewood, Florida. Interestingly, Super Scoops and A Better Scoop both feature Working Cow ice cream of St. Petersburg. People have been coming in from all round Florida congratulating us, said Diane. The Nulls opened the shop in a former car rental office just under six years ago after relocating from Connecticut. They offer over 20 flavors of ice cream in a homemade waffle cone or bowl, milkshake, banana split or a loaded sundae. The shop is open seven days a week, noon to 10 p.m. Photo by BOB McCLUREMonty and Diane Null operate Super Scoops at 11025 Gulf Blvd., in Treasure Island. The shop was voted the third best ice cream parlor in the United States by customers on the travel website TripAdvisor.

Bait fish stocks are on the rise. Bait fish of all types and sizes are blanketing our coastal waters attracting the attention of all kinds of predatory fish. It wont take much of a weather change for the fishing to really catch fire. Inshore fishing is picking up. Redfish are showing up at typical fall spots. Look for those flats that are directly adjacent to deeper water to be the most reliable. They dont call them channel bass for no reason. Redfish, especially fall reds, seem to school in deeper water and can often be found by the mud they create as they scour the bottom. Look for muds, tern activity and the presence of jack crevalle to give away the location of the redfish. Near shore, Spanish mackerel are becoming more and more of a mainstay. The Skyway and DeSoto fishing piers have been outstanding for mackerel. Use silver spoons behind a small trolling sinker first thing in the morning. While gag grouper seem to be a bit off right now, mangrove snapper fishing remains red hot. Ledges and artificial reefs from 30 to 50 feet are loaded with snapper and fishing has been good during the day and excellent at night. Heavy chumming with fresh cut pilchards will entice the snapper to come off the bottom both day and night.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBN weekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

18A Schools Seminole Beacon, August 28, 2014 082814 School newsUtica College launches nursing programST. PETERSBURG Utica College, a leading provider of higher education, recently launched its Accelerated Second Bachelors Degree Nursing program in St. Petersburg to address the rising shortage of nurses in the region and across the state of Florida. This is an exciting time for the Tampa Bay area as well as for Utica College, and we are eagerly anticipating the launch of our Accelerated Second Bachelors Degree Nursing program in St. Petersburg in August, said Dr. Todd S. Hutton in a press release. Hutton is the president of Utica College. There is so much opportunity for students pursuing nursing careers today. As our population ages and the demand for nurses grows, it is critical to provide the latest educational advancements required to improve the delivery of health care. We are committed to giving our nursing students a curriculum that is in step with those advances and helping them to successfully complete their bachelors degree program in just four semesters. We are confident they will graduate with the necessary leadership and clinical skills to excel anywhere in the health care industry. Headquartered in northeast St. Petersburg and centrally located to all area hospitals, at Utica College, students can earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing in just 16 months through a combination of online and classroom learning and complete clinical hours at top healthcare facilities under the supervision of registered nurse educators.

The St. Petersburg accelerated nursing program is currently accepting applications, and the first classes will begin next month.

PETERSBURG Months of efforts to get students enrolled this fall at St. Petersburg College have paid off, as enrollment for the term is up 2.2 percent over Fall 2013. As of Aug. 18, the first day of fall classes, 32,350 students were enrolled in 276,620 semester hours at SPC. Were in good shape and Im very glad to present these numbers because its been a few years since Ive been able to report enrollment gains, Patrick Rinard, associate vice president for enrollment services, told SPCs Board of Trustees on Tuesday. A number of our sister institutions across the state are reporting enrollment declines the first day of classes. At SPC, first-time-in-college student enrollment was up 8.8 percent, with even stronger gains among minority FTIC students. Enrollment among FTIC AfricanAmerican students was up 19.7 percent while FTIC Hispanic student enrollment was up 18.3 percent. Bachelors degree programs saw a 6.7 percent increase in students, continuing a trend of several years. Students seeking a bachelors degree now make up 12.7 percent of overall enrollment at SPC, up from 9.4 percent in Fall 2009. The top bachelors degree programs at SPC by enrollment and student hours are nursing, business administration and education. Were really proud of the data, said Tonjua Williams, senior vice president for student services. This would not have happened without changing the way we did business. We had to undo some of our processes and remove some obstacles to enrolling. As an institution, its easy to give yourself kudos, but its much harder to look at yourself and say maybe we need to change some processes, said BOT member Lauralee Westine. This came from all of you and we are thankful. Rather than attend a required orientation and get a student ID, new students at SPC now see an adviser when they register for classes to make sure they are on track. Previously, students were also required to take a career assessment, apply for financial aid, activate their SPC OneCard and get their textbooks before they could register. Other strategies implemented by college staff to increase enrollment included: Enhanced marketing and publications, particularly on social media Stronger student communications that are more personal and timely A weekly Fall 2014 enrollment webinar among staff so enrollment efforts could be better coordinated and communicated.

It all came crashing to an end in October 1959, when events forced the relationship into the open, sparking an avalanche of publicity castigating Beverly and her mother which only fed Florences need to stay in the spotlight. The Last of Robin Hood is a story about the desire for fame and the price it exacts.Life of CrimeGenre: Action and comedy Cast: Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Mark Boone Junior, Will Forte, Isla Fisher and Tim Robbins Director: Daniel Schechter Not rated When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonards novel The Switch. Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides hed rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.The NotebookGenre: Drama Cast: Ulrich Thomsen, Ulrich Matthes, Laszlo Gyemant, Andras Gyemant, Piroska Molnar, Gyongyver Bognar, Orsolya Toth Director: Janos Szasz Rated: R Toward the end of World War II, people in big cities are at the mercy of air raids and death by starvation. A desperate young mother leaves her 13-year-old twin sons at their grandmothers house in the country, despite the fact that this grandmother is a cruel and bestial alcoholic. The villagers call her the Witch because she is rumored to have poisoned her husband long ago. Previously pampered, the twins must learn how to survive alone in their new, rural surroundings. They realize that the only way to cope with the absurd and inhumane world of adults and war is to become completely unfeeling and merciless. By learning to free themselves from hunger, pain and emotion, they will be able to endure future hardships. So they begin their own series of studies: they fortify their spirits by reading the Bible and learning foreign languages. They practice every day to harden their bodies and minds. They hold their hands over flames, cut their legs, arms and chests with a knife and pour alcohol right on their wounds. They desensitize themselves to insults and learn to ignore the more insidious appeals of sentiment and love. The twins keep a written record of all they have witnessed during the war, Le Grand Cahier. When they write, they follow their own strict code: The prose must be free from emotion, the notes precise and objective. Over time they are initiated into the corruptions and horrors of a wartorn world. For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.

Last year, West Coast Players nonprofit arts organization raised nearly $25,000 for the new theater seating and completed the renovation with countless hours of volunteer help, according to a press release. The theater now boasts plush new red seats, elevated rows for better viewing, a new light and sound booth, new carpeting and lighted aisles.

Her mother chided her. Well, he started it, said the girl. Undoubtedly, the girl was right its not difficult for a bulldog to look unpleasant. The weakness, however, was in her conclusion about the dogs expression. Most likely, the dog was innocent, but even if not, the girl gained nothing by competing with him in making faces. One who believes in returning every ugly look he sees, or every ugly act he thinks is directed toward him, will wage a neverending and profitless war. Unlike true justice, spite usually has a greater negative effect on the spiteful than on the one spited: mentally, morally, physically and spiritually.Leaves of GoldFret not because of evildoers, soon they shall be cut off.

The play contains adult language and content and is recommended for mature audiences only. Performances are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25.50 plus applicable service fees. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. In his notes regarding the production, director Christopher Rutherford proposes that it is time to combine two famous idioms to create a new turn of phrase: You can never go home again because home is where the heart is. Rutherford touches upon some of the family dynamics the Letts explores in the play. Im not a parent but when I ponder what it must be like to pour the best and worst parts of yourself into another soul, and then one day to have them leave and live life on their own, I find the range of emotions and fears is unfathomable, he writes. We leave our family behind and we build a new family. If were lucky, the new and the old will blend together but for many, life doesnt hold such luck. The play is a spellbinding study of a dysfunctional family undergoing a full-scale nuclear meltdown. August: Osage County is simultaneously unsettling and beguiling in its voyeuristic perspective on familial entanglements. Darkly comedic, the story unfolds inside the home of Beverly and Violet Weston in rural Oklahoma. Beverly a once-respected poet whose glory days are far behind him is an alcoholic. Violet who is undergoing treatment for cancer has become addicted to various prescription painkillers. In the opening scene, as Beverly interviews young Native American Johnna for a job as Violets caregiver, the audience quickly senses how toxic life has become inside the house and thats even before all of the familys many dark secrets are revealed. What causes the series of revelations and the gradual disintegration of the brittle ties that once bound these kinfolk is Beverlys sudden, unexpected disappearance. His departure reunites all family members and ignites one confrontation after another. Michael Mahoney stars as Beverly Weston. Mahoneys whisky-drenched opening monologue impeccably delivered helps set the tone of August: Osage County. The actors melancholy humor suggests that lurking just beneath the charade of momentary serenity is a raging storm. Donna Donnelly portrays Violet Weston. Donnelly manages to invoke laughter when shes mocking her family; but its her weakest moments in which the actress truly excels. It is a wildly difficult role to tackle as Violet moves from malicious backbiting and manipulation to drug-fueled disorientation and lonely desperation. Linda Woodruff Weir is Mattie Fae Aiken, Violets sister. Weir delivers a deliciously screeching, uncouth bully. Like Violet, Mattie Fae has no concern for other peoples feelings and she is particularly cruel to her own son. Weir doesnt hold back in her portrayal of this shameless, nasty maternal despot. T.J. Gill is perfectly cast as Charlie Aiken, Mattie Faes generously forgiving husband. Gill makes the audience believe that Charlie may well be the only human capable of spending prolonged periods of time with Mattie Fae. Their son, Little Charles Aiken, is played by Jonathan Pouliot. Pouliot offers a heartrending performance as a young man continually demoralized by his overbearing mother. Starring as Beverly and Violets eldest daughter Barbara Fordham is Linda Roth-Grayne. Roth-Graynes performance is impressive: While Barbara wields the same caustic cynicism that has isolated her mother, she is by far a more sympathetic character. Roth-Grayne perfectly renders that heartbreaking moment in which an adult child realizes it has inherited all of the worst traits of its parents. Catherine Harp stars as Ivy Weston, Barbaras sister. Harp brings to the character just the right amount of mousy meekness. She sprinkles in hints of latent assertiveness along the way to lend weight to Ivys eventual bid for emancipation. The third sister, Karen Weston, is portrayed by Stephanie Bell. Bell seizes on this sisters skewed rationale. Karen seems narcissistic and self-absorbed, unwilling or unable to acknowledge the needs of others or express her own grief but her selfishness a defense mechanism. Bell underscores Karens own frantic and sometimes reckless attempts to distance herself from the ruins of her family. The cast also includes Ben Taylor as Bill Fordham, Barbaras husband; Margee Sapowsky as Jean Fordham, Bill and Barbaras daughter; Thom Jay as lecherous Steve Heidebrecht; Ana Benot-Reilly as unflappable Johnna Monevata; and Brad Barkley as Sheriff Deon Gilbeau. As usual, set designer Tom Hansen has created the ideal microcosm for this ensemble cast. His interpretation of the Westons three-story house of chronic misery serves as a perfect setting for this production. Eight OClock Theatres production of August: Osage County is gripping, emotionally taxing and ultimately rewarding. It is a darkly comic drama, filled with ferocity and fierce wit. The intensity of its ensemble cast is superb under the direction of Rutherford. As secrets are revealed and decorum is brushed aside, audiences will find the ensuing collapse of the Weston clan is viciously candid yet morbidly captivating.
