The stipulation is that the facility would have to be built on city property and managed by city government. In an interview, Chamber president Roger Edelman said hes heard the future home of Waterfront Park, an 8-acre lot located at 10400 Park Blvd. next to Home Depot, is tentatively being considered for the project. But its way too premature to discuss the details, he said. At the meeting, City Manager Frank Edmunds, who had been privately discussing the grant with the Luries prior to Sept. 10, said hed set up a workshop session soon so the council can discuss the grant offer. In a letter to the city, the couples attorney, Timothy C. Schuler, wrote that they have seen the need for a permanent home or clubhouse that would give both consistency of location and prominence to these vital entities that serve our community so well. The Luries have a storied reputation for philanthropic giving. Theyve been involved with more than 40 civic organizations countywide. Lurie, who was chamber president, a past Rotary Club president and previous Mr. Seminole, is considered a pioneer of the city. He led the chamber By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Last year when Pinellas County implemented its surface water assessment fee for unincorporated residents, some complained. But this year, an overflow crowd showed up to protest after some received bills as much as 340 percent higher. Nearly all were residents of mobile home parks. Kelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager, explained that last years bills were incorrect incomplete. This years assessments are more accurate. They were calculated using data from digitized images, showing all the impervious surfaces inside the different parks, including roads, swimming pools, patios, shuffleboard courts and other structures besides the mobile homes. Assessments that are more accurate allow the county to capture the best revenue stream based on the amount of runoff from each property. Rainwater and water from sprinklers flow out onto the ground, which becomes saturated. The excess water, or runoff, continues onto sidewalks and streets, picking up pollutants as it then flows into storm drains, ponds, ditches and on into the countys waterways and Gulf of Mexico. Federal regulations require the county to maintain certain water standards. More money is needed to maintain an aging stormwater system and pay increasing cost of operations. More maintenance is needed to help alleviate flooding problems in some areas. Better surface water management is needed to help lower flood insurance premiums. The county created its new fee to provide a Features Business . . . . . . . . .11, 16A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B Community . . . . . . . . . .8A County . . . . . . . . . . .5-6A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4, 8B Faith & family . . . . . . . .15A Health . . . . . . . . . . .12A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . .9, 17A Pets of the week . . . . . . . .18A Police . . . . . . . . . . . .7A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .10A Seminole . . . . . . . . . .3-4A Sports . . . . . . . . . . .14A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .13A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers perform at Amalie Arena on Sept. 21. ... Page 3B.ENTERTAINMENTBudgets, millage rate passed on first reading By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council gave a tentative green light to the millage rate and various city budgets for fiscal year 2015 at its Sept. 10 meeting, passing separate ordinances regarding budgets and millage rate following their first readings and public hearings. The millage rate for the upcoming fiscal year is slated to remain at 2.4793 as it has been for the last eight years. The trend started way back in the Nineties, said Harry Kyne, director of administration. This is the eighth year in the same rate and there hasnt been a rate increase since 1996. This millage rate is a 5.23 percent increase over the rolled back rate of 2.356, and will bring in $2,554,837 for the city in fiscal year 2015. Seminole earns 13 cents on the dollar of every dollar collected, Kyne said. For a property owner in Seminole per hundred thousand of taxable value pays the city $248 a year out of their taxes and it comes out to 68 cents per day. The council also gave initial approval to establish four budgets for the fiscal year 2015 the general fund operating budget ($14,769,552), the debt service fund ($960,082), the special events fund budget ($98,647) and the tree/landscape mitigation budget ($50,000). The proposed general fund budget indicates a 4.8 percent decrease in appropriates over the 2014 budget. Kyne said Seminole has a number of revenue streams to fund its annual budget. In fact, the ad valorem tax, or property tax, which gets most of the press, only makes up 17 percent of the budget, he said. Forty-two percent of the citys budget is funded by the county to pay for fire services in unincorporated areas and about 52 percent of the total operating budget is used to pay for fire services, the lions share of that, around 71 percent, coming from the county, he said. Franchise fees and utility taxes bring in about 21 percent of operating budgets revenue, and another 14 percent comes from intergovernmental revenue, including sales tax.Music in the Park: Week 3Mobile home residents protest stormwater feesFAST lobbies for more money Faith in Action for Strength Together asks county for dental care funding. ...

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. This weeks concert is sponsored by Barnhorn Financial.

Celebrating health workersSPC park featured on Tour of Native LandscapesSEMINOLE The 40-acre park Natural Habitat Park at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus will serve as one of two public landscape locations for the Florida Native Plant Society Pinellas Chapters eighth annual Tour of Native Landscapes on Saturday, Sept. 27. The self-guided tour, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will involve a total of six sites throughout Pinellas County. Participants are given maps and information about each site and they can visit them on their own based on their schedule during the day. Candace Candy Arnold, president of the Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, said that restorative efforts were part of the reason why the organization selected SPCs Natural Habitat Park as one of the locations for the tour. One of the reasons is that our mission is the restoration of native plants and native plant communities, Arnold said. The habitat is just absolutely gorgeous. In 2010, the Natural Habitat Park opened after undergoing a restoration, removing exotic and non-native vegetation to better highlight the natural plant life. We thought this would be a great opportunity for our members to see what great restoration can look like, she said. If you see some of the pictures from before when they were removing some of the exotic plants, it was thick with exotics. Now its filled with beautiful native vegetation. Maura Scanlon, assistant professor of biology in environmental science technology at the Seminole campus, said the habitat also serves as green space for relaxing and as an outdoor classroom for field studies. It is ideal as it highlights not only the beauty of native plants and animals, but also how impacted urban land can become ecologically functional again through wetland restoration, Scanlon said. While the habitat has not been featured on the landscape tour in prior years, members of the Florida Native Plant Society have served as speakers for students in the Associate in Science Environmental Technology program and Seminole Environmental Club at the Seminole campus. The Natural Habitat Park is teeming with life including more than 250 species of birds, dragonflies, reptiles and native plants. The park features a 200-yard-long boardwalk with 12 viewing stations, a 50seat teaching pavilion, a floating dock and a butterfly and sculpture garden. Students from the SPC Seminole Environmental Club will provide assistance to visitors and answer questions during the tour. Having the park be a stop on the tour provides an opportunity for the public to learn more about SPC, our programs, and this great resource, Scanlon said. Natural Habitat Park at St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus will be included on the Florida Native Plant Societys Pinellas Chapters Tour of Native Landscapes on Saturday, Sept. 27.during the citys 1970 incorporation. Weve always had a strong feeling for what takes place in Seminole, Edward said. Theyve been a major benefactor to the city before, Edelman said. This doesnt surprise me, honestly, with the Luries. Theyre a very philanthropic family. Edmunds said at the meeting, Its just an outstanding offer from two very generous members of our community. Mayor Leslie Waters promised the couple we will do you proud. She added, Thats a half a million dollars and we really appreciate that. Im a little emotional over this because thats a big generous grant to the city. Vivian said, Seminole has been wonderful to us, to our family. Its been a wonderful place to raise our children, now our grandchildren. This is our way of loving back. GRANT, from page 1A BUDGET, from page 1ASeminole, like most of the cities in Pinellas County and around the state, try to diversify their revenue stream, Kyne said. The theory is that a negative impact in one area wont cripple the budget. He added that there are mostly negative or small increases in spending this year, resulting in a 4.8 percent or $745,700 reduction in revenue expenditure from last year. Things appeared to have flattened last year and are beginning to turn slightly, he said. Taxable value went up last year. It went up again this year. Sales tax revenue is increasing. When you look into what the forecasts are from the state, it appears theres more tourism and theyre expecting more revenue sharing. We would expect things looking better. City Manager Frank Edmunds also said in the future the city can expect additional revenue from projects like the Bay Pines development and the redevelopment of the Seminole Mall. We are expecting a moderate and gradual increase or improvement in the revenue picture going forward, he added. Mayor Leslie Waters said, The sooner it turns around the better. We all have a wish list of what wed like to do with some extra revenue. In other action items, the council: Authorized Fleischman Garcia Architecture to redesign the replacement of Fire Station 32. In 2010, the city council directed the architecture firm to design a replacement fire station, but the projects cost exceeded expectations at nearly $1.7 million, said Edmunds, nearly double what the city hoped to spend. The direction at the time was for a much larger station in hope that post recession the station could be built, he said. Clearly the staff direction to the architects was probably much to generous. This is probably much more real world. The city will pay Fleischman Garcia $180,000 for the new designs. Fire Station 32 will be demolished and reconstructed, Edmunds said. Temporary quarters for Seminole Fire Rescue will be set up on site so that staff can operate out of a temporary facility while construction is taking place. Gave the Public Works Department permission to apply for and accept a Highway Beautification Grant from the Florida Department of Transportation. If awarded, the grant would match 50 percent of funds designated for landscape projects that beautify state roadways. Edmunds said the city is looking to install palm trees along the center median near the Bay Pines project, and hopes to upgrade landscaping along 70th Avenue.

Largo, FL 33770 3131 N. McMullen Booth Road Clearwater, FL 33761 dedicated source of funding for surface water management. Fifteen municipalities already charge such a fee. Many agree that citizens should help fund surface water-related activities. But fee increases of 200 to 340 percent are too much, said Todd Pressman, on behalf of a conglomerate of mobile home parks. He said the concern is that the fee is disproportionate. He questioned the countys change in methodology for calculating the new bills. Mobile home parks have become the affordable housing of the county, he said. He asked commissioners to better balance the cost to owners of mobile home parks before charging the new fees. Attorney David Eastman represents a number of mobile home parks. He too talked about the huge fee increases and blamed it on the change in the way the county used the data from the digitized maps. He offered to sit down with staff to help find a solution. He said mobile home parks were about affordable housing for retirees, singles and families. He objects to the parks being assessed the same as commercial property. He added that some of the parks have surface water improvements that could qualify them for credits on their bill. But the period to apply is past. The rate of increase got everyones attention, he said. One example was for Amber Glades Mobile Home Park in Safety Harbor. The current years stormwater fee was $16,000. The new bill is $60,000, which increases the monthly cost to renters from $3.16 to $12. Frank Torres told commissioners he would have to stop buying his pills to be able to afford his share of the increased bill to Oakcrest Mobile Home Park in Largo. Im on Social Security. My wifes on Social Security, he said. He said coming up with $12.39 extra a month would be difficult. Last years fee increased his rent by $3.86. I dont know where to get the extra money, he said. I cant get my teeth fixed. Fred Bickley from Bickley Management brought another problem to the table older parcels built from 1970-1990. He said they were constructed based on code at the time, but now they cant be improved to qualify for credits. He said his bill had increased 115 percent over last year. Attorney Rex Sparklin representing Orange Lake Civic Center in Largo told commissioners that the special assessment violated state statute. You may need to table this issue until you work it out, he said. Commissioners discussed the possibility of rolling the bills back to last years rate or removing roadways from the assessments, which would reduce the amount. But, the tax rolls have to be certified by Sept. 15. Staff said there just wasnt enough time. Commissioners asked staff to consider the effect of removing roadways inside mobile home parks from the assessment. The plan is to amend bills and issue credits if necessary. Some voiced a concern about the added workload for staff. Im very sensitive to issues causing staff to have more work, but Im a lot more sensitive to our citizens, said Commissioner Janet Long. Its not their fault this is coming up four days before the deadline. She encouraged staff to work out the problem before next year. Get it right so we dont have these same issues, she said. County Administrator Mark Woodard said the commissioners intent was clear. The how is still unclear, but well figure it out, he said. The commission voted 6-1 to approve fiscal year 2015 surface water service assessments and fees. Commissioner Norm Roche voted no.

They were the only ones from the public to make comment about the proposed budgets for fiscal year 2014-15. Commissioners allocated an additional $500,000 to its Health and Community Services Department for dental care in the coming year. According to Lynda Leedy, interim HCS executive director, $300,000 will be used to serve residents with incomes of 100 percent of the poverty level or less. The remaining $200,000 will be used to serve those who make 200 percent of the poverty level or less. Staff estimates that the additional money will allow them to provide dental care to 1,600 more, as well as enhance the service to people who already were enrolled in the countys program. But FAST wants more $4.3 million more. Donna Davis, the first of more than two dozen people who signed up from FAST to speak to commissioners about spending more money for dental care for those on fixed incomes and the working poor. About six left before the public hearing began at 8:40 p.m. after commissioners listened to those unhappy with their stormwater utility bills. The public hearing on budgets and millage rates came after three other hearings, which began at 6 p.m. Davis told the commission that FAST had requested a report from the Department of Health in Pinellas County on what it would take to improve dental care. She said they asked how much money would be needed to serve residents in existing facilities if hours were extended in the evening and clinics could see patients on Saturday. She said the working poor were unable to take off work to go to the clinics during normal hours. The report showed that by extending hours, the Health Department could serve nearly 11,000 at a cost of $4.3 million. Please help our Health Department, theyre awesome, she said. County Administrator Mark Woodard pointed out that the commission had nearly doubled the budget for the indigent dental health program, spending $480,000 in the current year and adding $500,000 for next year. Commissioner Ken Welch said the $500,000 was not a one-time cash infusion but would be recurring dollars for the program. FAST acknowledged that $500,000 was good, but still not enough. Several seniors talked about their own need. They said living on Social Security benefits, receiving as little as $700 a month, didnt allow them to afford dental care something that becomes necessary with aging. They talked about the added health risks from having bad teeth and ill-fitting dentures or worse yet, no dentures at all. They talked about the difficulties younger people with missing front teeth have when trying to find a job. Someone needs to do something to help poor people, said Avis Lemon. Commission Chair Karen Seel said the need for improved services had been the focus of a recent dental roundtable. She said providers had been asked to come together to talk about the needs and discuss ways to increase dental services to county residents. She said the discussion confirmed that there are resources in the community. The goal is to find an efficient approach. The professionals say they have the capacity to serve, Seel said. She said staff was working with the Health Department and other stakeholders to come up with a feasible plan to increase capacity. Thats where were headed, she said. Welch said he supported increasing the budget for dental care in future years, adding that it was too late to do more for next year. He said funds had already been allocated. The only place to get more money was from reserves, dropping them below 15 percent something he would not support. Commissioner Charlie Justice suggested that FAST talk to their representatives in Tallahassee about the need for more money. The Department of Health is technically a state agency, he said. He also suggested that the commission make the matter part of its legislative package for next year. He said the county needed to be very specific about what it was asking for with specific dollars for a specific purpose.Budget and millage rates OKd on first passThe commission gave unanimous approval for all county budgets, totaling nearly $2 billion, and millage rates, which remain unchanged from the current year. The final public hearing is set for Tuesday, Sept. 23, 6 p.m. in the fifth floor conference room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/budget/ default.htm.

In our fast pace society, there does not seem to always be enough time to follow through with our good intentions. There is another avenue to let your special family member or friend know that they are in your thoughts and that is simply to mail a thinking of you card or letter. Receiving a card in the mail is personal, a kind act and especially when you live alone, it is sort of like someone just surprised you with a big hug! Sharing a thoughtful card with your loved one reinforces that they are not alone, they are special and you have them in your heart always. Those of us who receive Thinking of You cards via mail, can attest to that warm, uplifting feeling experienced when opening a card filled with kind words. It can make your day, I know it makes mine. Gift giving is an important part of life and a greeting card is a gift. When you send a card, you are sending an emotional piece of yourself. What better way to tell someone you care. Think about the last time you ripped open a bright envelope to find an unexpected note from someone you love inside. Whether it was a family member, or friend, that joy of having their handwriting right there in your hands is irreplaceable. Something about that note, that card, that letter, communicated love and care simply in its presence. Note how you felt Wouldnt it be amazing to help others feel the same? Emails are easy to keep but they are not tangible and enduring in the same way a handwritten card is. Cards can be displayed on desks and mantles and are so memorable. Many of us have saved our loves notes from our children and many cards sent to us on special occasions, stored for future reminiscing. As the elderly glance at their photo albums filled with loving memories, it is equally special to pull cards out to reread those loving messages sent from family and friends. Cards and letters can create a comfort and deep connection between people through the power of words. Send a card or letter to someone special today and imagine the smile on their face, you will indeed make their day.

The victims were a 14-year-old female and 16-year-old female that were known to the suspect. The crime occurred at an undisclosed location in Tama County, Iowa. Pinellas County detectives began their investigation on Thursday, Sept. 11, after they were contacted by the Tama County Sheriffs Office in Iowa, requesting assistance with their investigation. Detectives were told that a warrant had been issued for Stewart David Smith, 52, for sexual abuse of a child. According to detectives, Smith reportedly admitted to the media in Iowa that he is a pedophile who has been to prison for crimes related to juveniles. Smith has a criminal history dating back to the 1990s and was a registered sexual offender, but currently has no restrictions and is not required to register. Pinellas County detectives met with Smith Sept. 11 and arrested him on the Tama County warrant. He was transported to the Pinellas County jail without further incident. There are currently no local charges. Detectives said Smith has routinely taken part in juvenile related functions with church youth groups and Girl Scouts while living in Iowa. While living in Florida, he lived near a school and church daycare. Detectives said there could be local victims. Anyone with information on this investigation or other potential victims is asked to contact Detective M. Kolenda with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Crimes Against Children Unit at 727-5826200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.Child bitten in attack by Great DaneST. PETERSBURG A 6-year-old girl was bitten by a Great Dane who attacked her about 5:45 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, at the King of the Road Mobile Home Park, 5701 Haines Road in unincorporated St. Petersburg. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies reported that the dogs owner, David Watson, 51, of St. Petersburg was walking his 130pound, 5-year-old male Great Dane on a leash in the common area of the mobile home park. Several children in the park approached Watson and the dog Otis and began to pet the dog. The victim also approached the dog and began to pet him when he attacked her. As the victim, Ariel Hampshire, went to the ground, the dog bit her in the face, neck and head, deputies said. She was transported to a local hospital via ambulance for treatment of serious lacerations. Pinellas County Animal Control was contacted and took possession of the dog.Man injured in Palm Harbor motel firePALM HARBOR A 64-year-old man received life-threatening injuries from smoke inhalation during a Thursday afternoon fire at a Palm Harbor motel. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, deputies responded to the fire at Kings Inn Motel, 34107 U.S. 19 N. about 3:12 p.m. The injured man, William Manning, a resident of the motel was sleeping in a motel room at the time. Detectives assigned to the Arson and Auto Theft said the fire probably started near the door to the room where discarded cigarettes were found. Manning was transported to a local hospital via Bayflite with life-threatening injuries due to smoke inhalation. No one else was injured in the fire and no other rooms in the motel were damaged due to the fire. Detectives said the fire does not appear suspicious.Detectives seek credit card fraud suspectsPinellas County sheriffs detectives are seeking the publics assistance in locating two credit card fraud suspects from unincorporated Clearwater. According to detectives assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit, the victim last used her credit card at a Shell gas station in Palm Harbor. The following day the suspects used the credit card number six times at various locations, including a Home Depot store at 30144 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater, two Walmart stores, 41232 U.S. 19 N. and 23106 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater, and a Walgreens, location unknown.

As a mom with two small kids, ages 3 and 5 at the time, it was hard to handle all the things a mom needs to do and be out of commission for a while. I am so thankful for my family and friends who were there with me during the surgery and the year of recovery. Yes, it was a year of recovery. I actually couldnt put any pressure on my right leg for more than 30 days. I was still using a cane on my 40th birthday. I tried to get rid of the cane before my birthday, but the doctor said I still needed to use it a little longer. I tell you all of this because having the surgery was such a blessing. I didnt realize it at the time, but I realize it now. I am able to do all the things I use to do. Before, the pain in my knee and hip got so bad, I didnt even want to go shopping, and if you know me you know I love to shop. In fact, I knew it was time for the surgery when I didnt want to shop anymore. It hurt to walk and I didnt want to take painkillers, even though I was taking about four Motrin three to four times a day. You are probably wondering why I had a hip replacement at such a young age. Most people are 60 or older when they have a hip replacement. I was 39. The reason was because I was born with a dislocated hip. The doctors did what they could at the time to correct it. When I was two months old, I was put in the hospital and in traction for 30 days. I had surgeries when I was a few months old, including a steel pin in my hip. After the surgery, I was put in a body cast for a year. You dont see too many kids these days in a body cast. Again at age 3, I had surgery again and another body cast. I also had knee surgery when I was 9. My parents went through a lot with me. Years ago, being born with a dislocated hip was an ordeal. They didnt have the technology they do today. My doctor told my parents by the time I was 40, I would need a hip replacement. He was right. I was fortunate enough to be able to have one of the best doctors perform my hip replacement. He actually wrote articles and performed hip replacement surgeries on people who were born with dislocated hips. My hip replacement was so extensive and I had such a long recovery time because they had to cut the femur bone. The bone had to be cut to correct the leg length so that both of my legs would be even. By doing that, my recovery time was a lot longer than your normal, everyday hip replacement. I didnt know until after the surgery that my recovery was going to be long because the doctor couldnt tell for sure if he would need to cut the femur until he performed the surgery. I am so thankful I had a great support team helping me with my kids at the time. I had both my mom and mother-in-law taking care of my two girls along with my husband. I also had a wonderful friend who helped me with picking up my girls from preschool and kindergarten. The women in my Bible study and church came to the rescue with meals for a full month. I couldnt believe it. It was such a big help to have meals prepared every other night. I cant tell you how much a meal means when you arent able to cook. If someone is sick and needs a meal, I try my best to help out because, I know how thankful I was when I was sick and received a meal. I learned so much from going through this surgery. If you asked me right after the surgery if I was glad I had it, I probably wasnt, because it was very painful and such a slow recovery. Today, though I am so glad I did it. I cant imagine being in the pain I was in and living life in agony. What really made an impact on me is the community of family and friends including neighbors who just did what they could to help me. Everything from my daughters preschool class sending a huge get-well card with their handprints to other cards, flowers, to even cleaning my house for me. It was incredible. I couldnt have done it having small children without the help of others. Its those relationships that can help us in our time of need. Thanks again to everyone who helped me and took the time to care. Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamily Fun.blogspot.com.

They appeared and disappeared like characters in a video game. Nervous milling like this indicates agitation. The seas were probably buzzing with grunts, growls and barks. Without knowing it, we got ringside seats for a most unusual dolphin behavior, thanks to one of our smartest girls. Of the eight dolphins, there were four onlookers, three contestants and one prize. The onlookers were mother-calf pairs milling on the outskirts of the arena. As with human dramas, dolphin dramas draw a crowd. The three contestants were mature bulls, two against one. Brick and his bonded buddy Nose are seasonal visitors. They are the sole remnants of the once-mighty Punch Buddies bull super alliance that used to appear annually and challenge resident bulls. Schnoz is one of our biggest resident bulls. Dominant, Schnoz works alone. The prize was local lady Bet. A model mother to her firstborn calf, Bet and Ballou lived alongside mother-calf pair Face and Facet. These three dolphins were Bets social world and immensely important to her. All three died abruptly last September within three weeks. Bet had a rough winter. On the other side now, this particularly intelligent dolphin swam with Schnoz. And, ah, how they swam! They paced each other perfectly as they wove in choreographed synchrony, close enough to be touching. When Schnoz surfaced, Bet surfaced. When Schnoz dove, Bet dove. They only broke rhythm when one leaned sideways to present its gleaming white belly to the other; this is a standard friendly invitation. Bet and Schnoz were a courting couple. We got there just as rival bull pair Brick and Nose challenged them. Hey, you never know unless you try. Plus, theoretically, two bulls have the advantage over one bull (if you discount the escorted lady). Brick and Nose started their challenge by milling around the courting couple at a distance. Nose signaled his discontent with a vaporous snort from his blowhole. Brick reinforced Noses signal with a snort of his own. It was like your neighbors shouting at you from across the street by alternately laying on their car horns. Bet and Schnoz stopped their choreographed swimming, adopted the identical humped posture and floated side by side, their backs to the rival pair. In this position, the courting pair looked each other right in the eye, Bets right eye inches from Schnoz left eye. Oh, yeah? says Nose. Take this! Nose arched up over the water surface in great exaggeration and slammed his chin down on the water. Schnoz answered by creating a patch of frothy water with a tailslap. Eh, get lost. Tailslaps are what they seem to be striking contact between the water surface and dolphins powerful peduncle and flukes. Tailslaps are usually warnings. Stop what you are doing! The strength of the warning is revealed by the intensity of the tailslap. Tailslaps range in intensity like laughter ranges in intensity. A low intensity tailslap is like a chuckle. The dolphin barely raises the tailstock above the water and merely dabs it lightly on the down stroke. A medium intensity tailslap is your normal laughter. The dolphin raises the tailstock to a 45-degree angle and gives the water a good smack. A high intensity tailslap is you shrieking with laughter, gasping because the delight that bubbles out of your core takes your breath away. The dolphin elevates the tailstock as high as possible, nearly upending into a headstand, and whacks the water with full force. Undeterred by Schnoz low intensity tailslap, the rival pair edged closer to the courting couple. Undeterred by but undoubtedly aware of the proximity of the rival pair, the courting couple resumed their hypnotic synchronous swimming. Synchronous (unison) behavior is the dolphin way to signal their united front to others (is this why human armies march in step?). Calves initially imitate their mothers moves but ape her less as they grow up; their united front signal is unintended. In contrast, bonded bulls use the synchrony signal the most because it clearly communicates their united front. Thus, it was not strange that bonded bulls Brick and Nose gave synchronized signals like choreographed swims and corresponding snorts. Courting pairs also use the synchrony signal. After all, courtship is cooperation through the escalation of synchronous exchange, and mating in water without arms is so much easier when partners cooperate. I do not know if the synchrony of courting pairs is meant to be a social signal. It could be. The rival bulls trailed the courting pair. The courtship choreography was punctuated with another low intensity tailslap: Schnoz warned the rival bulls behind them. I said get lost. The warning did not work. The rival bull pair closed in, crowding the couple. Roused, big bull Schnoz replied with a high intensity tailslap! Boom! What followed was a most unusual dolphin behavior, thanks to one of our smartest girls. Unexpectedly, Bet reinforced Schnoz ringing warning with a resounding high intensity tailslap of her own. Schnoz bolstered Bets warning with a third reverberating high intensity tailslap. Bet fortified the force of his tailslap with a final fourth rich and resonant tailslap! A series of synchronized tailslaps! This rare form of teamwork signaled the couples united front. It also signaled that dolphin females have choices in the mating arena. Finally, it worked really well. The waters fell silent. Time passed. Dolphins appeared way in the distance. Chase? Escape? Great getaway. After their flourishing signal, Bet and Schnoz sprinted to a private bay. Brick and Nose did not follow them. Instead, they seized the next opportunity that swam by. As the onlookers who had accumulated during the drama slowly dispersed, we glimpsed Brick and Nose on their trail.Photo by ANN WEAVERIn their world without walls, dolphins must control their every move. This tumbling twosome shows that control takes practice. Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSSignificant historical events reduced to slogansEditor: This past week I had the pleasure of attending the dedication of the Madeira Beach 9/11 Memorial. While it was well attended, moving and a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives that day as well as testament to the bravery of firemen everywhere, I could not help but wonder how many of those attending gave pause to consider the tragedy we witnessed that fateful day and were now memoralizing could have been prevented. To keep this fresh in our minds is equally as important as recalling the sacrifices made that day. We Americans have a tendency to reduce to slogans the significant events in our history. We then use these slogans to rally the faithful and in so doing overlook the invaluable lessons that were there to be gleaned from these experiences. I refer here to events like the bridge at Concord, the first salvo fired at Fort Sumter or the attack on Pearl Harbor. Nowhere in the slogans that were created to memorialize these events is there a scintilla of information that would help in preventing things like these from happening again, only enough information to rekindle our anger when they are recalled. This is especially true in the case of the al-Quida inspired attacks in 1991. Here the lesson we should have learned was the fact this tragedy was made possible only because of the failures of our intelligence community. We must remember, if we have any hope of preventing a recurrence, that had those responsible for our nations security not been engaged in their internecine warfare between agencies, more concerned with who received credit for the intelligence gathered than in sharing it between the agencies involved, then 9/11 would have no more significance on the collective psyche of Americans today than 9/10 or 9/12. There is not a citizen in this nation who will ever need a memorial to remind them of what happened on that fateful September day. Unfortunately, their are far too few Americans who can explain how we allowed it to happen. Lest we forget! Robert Shaw Madeira BeachNeighborhood does its part in accommodating ALFsRe: Commission says yes and no to ALF rezoning requests, Sept. 4, by Suzette Porter.Editor: There are several points in this article that need clarification in regards to Oak Tree Manor. First, it was not just several neighbors who opposed this rezoning. A petition was signed by all of the homeowners in the surrounding neighborhood, except two. The variances that were being requested posed safety issues that had to be addressed with the commissioners. Parking spaces were inadequate on the existing property and a reciprocal parking agreement with Winn-Dixie, which was not valid according to the property owner, highlighted these areas of concern. The neighbors have only opposed two requests at commission meetings. Once when the ALF was built originally and the second at the recent meeting. We have not opposed expansion of this facility when it happened on the existing property. All of the neighbors understand the need for ALF facilities regarding the future of the elderly in our community. Many of us have experienced this need first hand in our families. We have compassion for the elderly residents at this facility. We also feel like our neighborhood has done its part in accommodating residential facilities for the elderly, as we have two ALs in our neighborhood. Patty Gaston Seminole North Dakota is for everyoneEditor: I read an article by Thomas Michalski in the Tampa Bay News titled North Dakota is not for everyone. It can be read online at this rather long address http://www.tbnweekly.com/editorial/viewpoints/content_articles/081914_vpt-01.txt In his brief transit through the state in August he drew a lot of conclusions that I will generously call uneducated. I guess you could say it put me in a defensive mood. I have spent time in both Florida and North Dakota during all seasons for the last 40+ years. I didnt just pass through one time in August and make snap judgments about the culture and the folks that live in either place. And, I might note, as folks drive on their summer vacations, trying to escape the torturous heat down south, they are using gasoline and oil from North Dakota. North Dakota produces over 1 million barrels a day of oil in the Bakken. Florida produces about 6,000 barrels, which is about enough to get tourists down I-75 to the toll road going to Disney World. I would be willing to compare the unemployment rates and average income in North Dakota (6th) to Florida (27th). Where do you want to work if you want a good income. Do you have to put on heavy clothes in the winter? You betcha. But, it sure helps to keep the riff raft from down south out. Tourists in Florida buy a souvenir sealed empty can that is labeled as Florida Sunshine. Other than hot humid air, sand and Mickey Mouse dolls Florida doesnt offer much else to the rest of the country. I saw the bumper sticker Hell is like Florida: Its not the heat its the humidity. The last two times I stopped to buy oranges on the way out of the state they were not even edible. They might tout the fishing there but even there are many of the places I used to fish for crappie and bass are being taken over by talapia. Many of these places that have talapia were actually stocked by the state and they have displaced the fish Florida is known for. If you want heat in North Dakota you only need to go to the International Peace Garden where they have the most complete, and beautiful, collection of cactus in the world. Several of the plants are the only ones of that kind on the planet. When someone breaks down on the road in North Dakota someone always stops to help. I can tell you from personal experience. When I broke down all three of the next three vehicles stopped to offer aid. The culture in Florida says do not stop to help because of all the strange folks there. Which state do you want to break down in? How many folks in Florida have stepped out of their ice fishing house on a cold crisp night and watched the wonder of the aurora borealis? Did you know most kids in North Dakota not only know what the milky way is, they have seen it. Have they tasted the wonderful flavor of a walleye or yellow perch taken from frigid water? In fact, folks in North Dakota can walk on water. One thing you will notice as you travel around North Dakota is that you will only see one flag displayed and one language spoken; Old Glory and English. If you want to be among the most friendly and hardy folks in America, then I say North Dakota is for Everyone. Dennis Miller Livingston, TexasMichalski tells it like it isRe: Racism and bigotry, by Thomas Michalski, Sept. 4Editor: Quite a gutsy article which should have been written long ago, and many times. Good that you are retired, otherwise, no doubt, someone would want to tar and feather you for having the courage to say it like it is. On the white power fanatics, correct, but give the Confederate flag a break. The confederacy after all was made up of gentlemen of the type of Robert E. Lee, and even Lincoln did not start out as antislavery. (Of course we all know it is wrong) but he was trying to hold the union together. Our creed since evolved to say one nation, under God, indivisible. Still Texas and other places seem to want to assert states rights and our country is totally confused on this as the Big 9 sometimes rule for the states and other times against. Same sex marriage for example and treading on religious institutions traditional rights. Sometimes it seems we are ruled by one person, the one on the court that tips the balance on an issue to make it 5-4. Anyway, congratulations on your article and I wonder how much static you will get for telling the truth. If time permits, let me know. Henry King Clearwater So here we are in the era of Information Overload or IO. Each day the average citizen is exposed to thousands of incoming messages via phone calls, email, advertisements, TV, radio, personal contacts and simply being alert to the passing parade. Its good to be well-informed. But it can also drive you crazy, unless you somehow learn how to process all that data. Are there courses that can teach you how to stay sane in todays age of IO? If so, Id gladly sign up. Maybe we should fashion our own defense system. Call it CIO Combatting Information Overload. I can think of several first steps. One is to stay in bed each morning with a pillow jammed against each ear. This will shut off most incoming messages. However, it also will cost you your job, or the love of your children waiting to be fed before the school bus arrives. A second step would be to get rid of your TV, computer, radio and newspaper delivery. That would isolate you thoroughly from the outside world. But soon the silence would overcome you. Retreat from IO is not the answer. A more effective step is to train our minds to ignore most of whats coming at us. Such as advertising. Im sick unto death of people trying to sell me something vacuum cleaners, hair spray, real estate, religious beliefs, political candidates, the whole nine yards. (More on this, below). Im not opposed to advertising as such. Its just that so much of it is repetitive, unimaginative or outright lies. Ive become adept at outwitting advertisers. When I watch TV and an ad comes on, I either shut the sound off or just click to another station. When I open a magazine and see that it contains five pages of advertising for each page of useful content, I file the magazine in a trash bag. Unfortunately, in recent weeks Ive begun to give the same treatment to most news reports. Throughout the summer its been a constant yaddayadda of Ferguson, Gaza, floods, forest fires, Ebola, Putin and political fingerpointing. After awhile it becomes too much. My defense: on most mornings I boot up my Kindle, find a reputable news source and read the basics. For the rest of the day I enthusiastically avoid all incoming news. Does that make me an ostrich? Maybe. A more sensible approach to IO is to maintain the Stoic attitude. A fundamental of Stoicism is to recognize and calmly accept everything, good or evil, that life can throw at us. A Stoic will not flee from reality or dismiss it, but neither will he/she allow fate to be an overwhelming force. Faced with an unceasing flood of daily information, a Stoic will assume the role of a weather-beaten granite mountain, able and willing to survive whatever comes. Another visual defense I often employ against informational onslaught is the ever-bobbing cork. I picture all of life as an often-raging sea, in which were mere corks. Waves may sweep over us and drive us under for a brief time, but we always rise again to the surface and greet the return of the inevitable calm. As mental weapons against incoming information deluges, are granite mountains and bobbing corks too simplistic to be recommended to a wide audience? Maybe so. But they work for me, at least part of the time. You probably have invented your own devices. I hope so. Ernest Hemingway said that every writer, to be believable, should develop his/her own bulls-t detector. He neglected to tell us exactly how that can be done. During his lifetime Papa Hemingway peddled a large amount of his own b.s. Still, his advice has merit, not just for writers, but all of us. Today, a valuable detector of lies and malarkey is PolitiFact, an invention of the Tampa Bay Times used to evaluate the degree of truth contained in the statements of candidates, news outlets, government officials and other inhabitants of the public arena. If I were king, I would expand PolitiFacts reach and direct it first and foremost at Americas advertisers, large and small. As much as any other institution, our advertising industry is the source of countless half-truths, distortions, exaggerations and outright lies. Some preventive regulation exists, but not enough to stop the frauds we are exposed to via every communications channel you can name. To sum up: the challenge that information overload presents to us is not just how to resist it, but how to find the nuggets of truth and determine the significance we should assign to each one of them. In attempting to do that, good luck to all of us.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Over the weekend, aides announced that the big new change essentially wont happen until after the midterm elections. Whats up? Obama told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd on Sunday, Sept. 7, What Im saying is that Im going to act because its the right thing for the country, but its going to be more sustainable and more effective if the public understands what the facts are on immigration, what weve done on unaccompanied children and why its necessary. What Obama couldnt quite say is that if he further undermines immigration law, the Democrats will lose the Senate. And he couldnt exactly blame Republicans for his decision to not act as promised. Ergo, gobbledygook. Obamaland was easier to translate when the administration was crowing about how it was going to go beyond donothing Republicans on immigration and pass reforms this summer. Leaks suggested that millions of people might win legal status. Aide Dan Pfeiffer boasted to The Christian Science Monitor that the president would act so boldly that Republicans might try to impeach him. Of course, it turned out to be a big tease, just like candidate Obamas pledge to pass a big immigration bill during his first year in office. The Democrats controlled Congress and the Oval Office then, and he didnt even try. Presidential inaction kept the issue alive so that Democratic operatives can gin up Latino outrage and turn out the base in an off-election year. The spin in Washington was that Republicans would lose out by not being part of an immigration shakeup. This summer, the politics changed as the consequences of nonenforcement came home to roost. A surge of unaccompanied minors mostly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador hit the border. Many of these children were fleeing for their lives. Many also came from families who saw opportunity. Obamas Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals offered legal status to some immigrants who came here illegally as children. A law signed by President George W. Bush also mandated that children from those nations Central Americas Northern Triangle be given shelter. If you make something legal, you see more of it. Hillary Clinton quickly saw the unintended consequences of a law enacted out of the best of intentions. In June, she told CNN, We have to send a clear message: Just because your child gets across the border, that doesnt mean the child gets to stay. So we dont want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey. Because shes a Democrat, Clinton can say such things without fear of being branded a racist. And that gives others permission to think likewise. Is Obamaland slower to see consequences than Clinton? Or, as I suspect, is Team Obama simply better at teasing the issue? Spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday that Obama is postponing Deferred Action 2.0 because he needs more time to communicate his plans to voters. To which a frustrated Major Garrett of CBS News responded, If he wanted to explain it, he could explain it.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaun email@example.com.

Section 718.111(11)(h) provides that the association must maintain insurance or fidelity bonding of all persons who control or disburse funds of the association. The amount of the insurance policy or the fidelity bond must be sufficient to cover the maximum funds that will be in the custody of the association or its manager at any one time. The statute states that persons who control or disburse funds of the association includes, but is not limited to, those individuals authorized to sign checks on behalf of the association and the president, secretary, and treasurer of the association. Any costs incurred by the association with regard to the insurance or bonding is a common expense of the association. Q. Does the Florida Condominium Act require me to maintain insurance upon my unit? A. Not very long ago, said insurance coverage was required. However, the requirement has been deleted from Chapter 718 and no unit owner is required to maintain insurance upon his unit. It is my opinion that each unit owner should carry his own insurance inasmuch as a unit owner is responsible for improvements costing thousands of dollars. Q. I have a question for the board of directors of my association. How should I present my question to the board? A. I would strongly suggest that you reduce your question to writing and file it with the board of directors. The filing must be made by certified mail, return receipt requested. If you make your inquiry in such a fashion, the board of directors is required to respond to you, in writing, within 30 days of its receipt of your inquiry. The response of the board of directors must either give a substantive response to you, notify you that a legal opinion has been requested of the attorney for the association, or notify you that advice has been requested from the Bureau of Condominiums of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. If the board of directors requires advice from the bureau, the board shall, within 10 days of its receipt of the advice from the bureau, provide you, in writing, with a substantive response. If the board of directors has requested a legal opinion from its counsel, the board must, within 60 days after its receipt of your question, provide you, in writing, with a substantive response to your question. Should the board of directors fail to provide you with a substantive response, said failure shall preclude the board of directors from recovering attorneys fees and costs in any subsequent litigation, administrative proceeding, or arbitration which arises out of your inquiry. For your information, the board of directors may adopt reasonable rules and regulations regarding the frequency and manner of responding to unit owner inquiries. One of the rules may require that the association is only obligated to respond to one written inquiry per unit in any given thirty 30-day period.Peter Hofstra, of the law firm of DeLoach & Hofstra, 8640 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, provided this article.

Professional 010214 Red tide bloom moving north at last report By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Interim director of Pinellas Countys Convention and Visitors Bureau David Downing told county commissioners that the red tide situation was iffy, during a Sept. 11 meeting. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has been monitoring a patching bloom of Karenia brevis, Florida red tide, since July. A small fish kill was reported on Honeymoon Island over the Labor Day weekend and respiratory irritation was reported at Anclote Key, Honeymoon Island and Three Rook Island in FWCs Sept. 5 red tide report. The good news is that it is not moving, Downing told the commission. It is there, but it not moving closer to shore. He said staff was keeping up with the weekly reports from FWC and working to dispel misinformation about the bloom on social media sites. Social media is very useful in situations like this for sending out updates, he said. He added that right now, everyone was optimistic that red tide would not cause problems. But we have a plan in place just in case, he said. The Sept. 12 report from FWC shows that there is no need to put that plan in place at the current time. The last three-day forecast from the University of Florida and FWCs Collaboration for Prediction of Red Tides said the bloom offshore northern Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties would move north. Good news for Pinellas. There were no reports of fish kills or respiratory irritation on or offshore Pinellas last week. Water samples taken alongshore and inshore showed no signs of red tide. Background concentrations were found in three samples taken offshore, including 17 miles off Honeymoon Island, 17 miles off Belleview Island and 39 miles off Mullet Key. Background concentrations dont cause problems. Its common to find K. brevis in local waters at background concentrations, less than 1,000 cells per liter, Alina Corcoran, a researcher at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Institute in St. Petersburg, said in an interview Sept. 5. Karenia brevis, Florida red tide, produces brevetoxins, which is the cause of respiratory irritation, fish kills and other problems. The brevetoxins can affect the central nervous system of fish and other vertebrates, causing these animals to die. Wave action causes the release of the toxins into the air, which leads to respiratory irritation. Satellite images taken Sept. 11 show a patchy surface bloom located about 5 to 15 miles offshore between Dixie and northern Pinellas counties and less than 3 miles offshore of Cedar Key in Levy County. Photo courtesy of FWCRight, satellite images from Sept. 11 show a patchy surface bloom of red tide located about 5 to 15 miles offshore between Dixie and northern Pinellas counties and less than 3 miles offshore of Cedar Key in Levy County. The hotter colors show the bloom. Gray represents cloud cover.

The Sunscreen Film Festival and CMA will host a documentary film camp over the course of six Saturdays, from Oct. 18 to Nov. 22, for young filmmakers at the CMA. The camp will focus on CMAs mission of rescue, rehab, release and filmmaking. Students will learn about topics affecting marine life and ecosystems along the gulf coast region. The students will create documentaries to share their experiences. The CMA is known for its resident film star Winter the dolphin. The subject of the films Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2, Winter has become an internationally recognized symbol for marine life rescue and rehabilitation. She has also become an inspirational figure for kids and adults alike. With the CMA as a backdrop for the film camp, students will learn about marine science topics, interact with animals and resources at the aquarium, learn from guest lecturers, and through hands on training, create impactful documentaries using their own talents and visions to bring pressing topics to life. This was a natural partnership building on our rescue, rehab and release philosophy combined with the great work Sunscreen does with film camps, education and our combined community outreach, said David Yates in a press release. Yates is the executive director of CMA. Its really exciting stuff for CMA, Sunscreen and the community. The camp is open to the public. A maximum of 20 students age 13 to 18 can register. To register, visit sunscreen-filmfestival .ticketleap.com/sunscreen-cma-filmcamp2014. The cost to attend is $225.

Rosh Hashanah is a day of repentance and renewal, judgment and restoration. This day to blow the shofar (Numbers 29:1) prompted Maimonides to write: Sleepers, awake! Reflect on your actions! Remember your Creator return to him! Be not as those whograsp at shadows, miss that which is realwaste their lives pursuing empty things that neither profit or deliverNathan AusebelIn the Talmud God tempers judgment with mercy as a loving father: And God will say to Israel, even to all mankind : My childrenon Rosh Hashanah I will look on you as if you had been created for the first time. For early Christians this day of hope presaged all the joys of Jesus second cominguntil false church doctrines of hellish cruelty and destruction arose, eclipsing His Fathers promises of restitution. Justice against evil will come, but its results? A restored Earth, and mankinds opportunity for resurrection and regeneration The LORD is graciousfull of compassionslow to anger and of great mercy.

Steve Winwood will appear as a very special guest Amalie Arena is at 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Tickets start at $32.75. Visit www.amaliearena .com. Its been 38 years since Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers released their debut album. Since then, the band has sold more than 60 million records. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, their first year of eligibility, and in recent years have continued to build on their already legendary success. Their concerts are celebrated by fans and critics alike and their music has influenced numerous young bands and writers around the world. Between the Heartbreakers recordings, solo work and his membership in The Traveling Wilburys along with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty has received 18 Grammy nominations and been honored with lifetime achievement awards including Billboards Century Award, ASCAPs Founders Award, MTVs Video Vanguard Award. Pettys SiriusXM radio show, Tom Pettys Buried Treasure, is now in its eighth season and is one of the most beloved and popular shows on satellite radio. It features Tom Petty spinning favorite tunes from his extensive private music collection. Tom Petty, with the Heartbreakers at his side, has become a rock and roll icon lauded by fellow musicians and music lovers worldwide. The bands latest album was released in July and met with instantaneous success. According to a press release from Reprise Records, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart with the release of Hypnotic Eye. The album has been a hit with fans and critics alike, many of whom have declared the album to be amongst Pettys finest. Hypnotic Eye has been critically embraced around the globe, with Rolling Stone Magazine declaring that Petty and his eternal Heartbreakers return to the scrappy heat of those early days with their toughest, most straight-up rocking record in many years, deepened by veteran perspective. In recent years, Petty went back to his roots, reuniting his first band, Mudcrutch, to cut the album they never got the chance to make back in the early 1970s. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers previous release, Mojo, carried with it the spirit of the Mudcrutch sessions. Mojo featured the sound of a band playing together in a room not a studio facing each other, all singing and playing at the same time. The music is alive, with no overdubs or studio trickery. With this album, I want to show other people what I hear with the band, Petty said in a press release from Big Hassle Media. Mojo is where the band lives when its playing for itself. Following the 1976 debut album Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers released a string of studio albums including Youre Gonna Get It! (1978), Damn the Torpedoes (1979), Hard Promises (1981), Long After Dark (1982), Southern Accents (1985), Let Me Up (Ive Had Enough) (1987), Into The Great Wide Open (1991), Songs and Music from Shes The One (1996), Echo (1999), The Last DJ (2002), Mojo (2010) and Hypnotic Eye (2014). Petty also released several albums as Tom Petty such as Full Moon Fever (1989), Wildflowers (1994) and Highway Companion (2006) which still featured members of The Heartbreakers as studio musicians as well as outside musicians such as George Harrison, Ringo Starr and Jeff Lynne. Also performing at the Sept. 21 show will be Steve Winwood. Beginning with The Spencer Davis Group at age 15, extending through Traffic and Blind Faith to a landmark Grammy-award winning solo career, Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock n roll for more than five decades. He is a respected innovator who has helped to create some of the genres most celebrated achievements. As a multi-instrumentalist with unmistakable vocals, he continues to deliver inspirational performances of his diverse catalog.Photo by MARY ELLEN MATTHEWS/BIG HASSLETom Petty and The Heartbreakers perform at Amalie Arena on Sept. 21.Capitol welcomes Nicki Bluhm and The GramblersCLEARWATER Song craft and sincerity seem to take center stage with Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers, a band hailing from Northern California that seamlessly mixes elements of country, blues, soul and s rock into taut, intelligent and evocative tunes with infectious hooks. On tour in support of their selftitled album, Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers will make a stop in the Tampa Bay area with a performance Tuesday, Sept. 30, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $22. Call 7917400 or visit www.atthecap.com. The San Francisco-based band serves up a melodic hodgepodge of California folk-rock, brisk Americana and heartfelt soul. The music is punctuated by refreshing fourpart harmonies, crisp Californiastyle rock guitar and the lead singers dramatic, nuanced vocals. Nicki Bluhm possesses a girl-nextdoor disposition that when paired with her pure voice evokes some of the greatest female vocalists of the 1970s such as Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin and Karen Carpenter. The first record under the banner of the full band, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers features 11 new songs penned by the band members, arranged and produced by Nickis husband and the bands musical director, Tim Bluhm. The music was recorded at the Bluhms Mission Bells studio in San Francisco and released on Little Sur Records. According to a biography provided by Monterey International, Tim and Nickis paths first crossed at a house party, when someone passed a guitar to Nicki. As the story goes, Nicki had never before sung in front of a crowd. Whether she jumped at the opportunity or had to be convinced, she eventually complied with the request and delivered an impromptu blues number, immediately catching Tims ear. A connection was made, and before long, Nicki and Tim were playing music together as he mentored her. Nickis natural music talents sent her headlong down a path toward a career as a singer/songwriter. Meanwhile, Nicki and Tim fell in love, got married and, in 2008, created and released Nickis debut solo album, Tobys Song. Driftwood followed in 2011 and, in 2012, the couple released Duets. Around this time, the band had begun to take shape. Nicki tapped a childhood friend, Deren Ney, to play lead guitar. Next on board was Dave Mulligan, who accepted an impromptu invitation to join while hiking with the Bluhms one day. Bass player Steve Adams and drummer Mike Curry already had musical commitments, but when each man got the call from the Bluhms, they agreed to moonlight as part of The Gramblers. According to the biography, things changed when the bands Van Sessions video for Hall & Oates I Cant Go For That went viral. The video introduced Nicki and band to the world with a taste of their endearing, stripped down versions of classic songs as well as to an existing catalog of original tracks from Nickis two previous solo albums.

The only human whose company shed chose to spend her time with is herself. What better challenge, then, to set for herself, than to walk seventeen hundred miles from the central Australian city of Alice Springs to the west coast. Its not something she can hope to do alone though. Firstly, she needs some camels to help her cross the desert and she spends two years training the animals that will be carrying nine months of supplies for her. Secondly, she needs money to support herself during the odyssey; National Geographic magazine agrees to sponsor her, on the condition that its photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) can catch up with her a few times along the way to take photos. Tracks follows the real-life story of the unlikely adventurer who became known as the camel lady as she attempts the unthinkable feat, while trying to avoid the inevitable attention it is sure to attract.The Zero TheoremGenre: Drama Cast: Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Mlanie Thierry, David Thewlis and Lucas Hedges Director: Terry Gilliam Rated: R Acclaimed director Terry Gilliam returns with the visually stunning sci-fi epic The Zero Theorem, starring Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius. Living in isolation, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life or the complete lack of one once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by visits from people he doesnt fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mlanie Thierry), his unpredictable supervisor Job (David Thewlis), and wouldbe digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), its only when he experiences the power of love and desire that hes able to understand his own reason for being.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Whats not expected is having the box appear again, less than a week later, carrying Teresa, the first girl to arrive in the Glade.Thomas learns that each resident of the Glade has a role to play, from gardening to construction to being one of the elite runners who map the walls of the Maze that keep them captive and change configurations every night. Maze Runners race the clock to cover as much ground as possible before the end of the day when the Maze locks down and the deadly biomechanical Grievers roam the corridors of the concrete structure. Even as a newcomer or greenie, Thomas feels an unsettling familiarity about the Glade and the Maze. There is something locked away in his memories that might, in fact, be the key to solving the mysteries of the Maze and possibly the world beyond.This Is Where I Leave YouGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Abigail Spencer, Dax Shepard and Jane Fonda Director: Shawn Levy Rated: R When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-havebeens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

Lifes a BreezeGenre: Drama Cast: Fionnula Flanagan, Pat Shortt, Eva Birthistle and Kelly Thornton Director: Lance Daly Rated: R Lifes a Breeze is a charming dramedy that follows a family struggling to stay afloat and together through hard times in Ireland. When the family makes a well-intentioned attempt to clean out their mothers house, and accidentally trashes a mattress she has been stashing her life savings in, Nan (Fionnula Flanagan), her unemployed slacker son Colm (Pat Shortt), and his niece Emma (Kelly Thornton) must overcome their many differences to lead their family in a race against time to find a lost fortune.

A&E NEWS, from page 2B GRAMBLERS, from page 3BIn 2012, the band logging more than 200 concert dates. In 2013, Nicki and the Gramblers touring schedule took them to Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Hangout Music Festival and Mountain Jam. The band also was showcased on network television by veteran journalist Anthony Mason for CBS This Morning. The new album, Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, got underway with the lead single Little Too Late. With its organic mix of funk, blues and honky-tonk, the track echoes both the classic Bakersfield sound as well as Bonnie Raitts brand of blues. Another song Ravenous with haunting lyrics and a pulsing bass line, brings to mind Rumours era Fleetwood Mac. We make music that generations of friends and families can share, Nicki says in the biography. She acknowledges that there is an evergreen quality to the bands music and admits her influences come from a wide variety of sources. Ultimately, though, its about entertaining her audience. For me, there is a tenderness, a humanness. Its about getting down to the basic level of bringing joy. Were a fun, honest group of people who love traveling and seeing the country. Im with my husband and my best friends, were so lucky to be doing this, and were so grateful for those coming out to visit with us.Shop Local
