VIEWPOINTSBob DriverColumnist weighs in on press conferences. ... Page 15A. Budget adoptedTravel expenses, raises for City Council, Mayor also considered By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The City Council passed its fiscal year 2015 millage rate and various fund budgets at its Sept. 24 meeting following their second readings. The budget sets a millage rate of 2.4793 for the upcoming fiscal year a 5.356 percent increase over the citys rolled back rate of 2.356. This will be our eighth consecutive year of maintaining that millage tax rate and it is necessary to support our general operating fund, City Manager Frank Edmunds said. The council also approved 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 approved general fund represents a 4.8 percent decrease from 2014. It continues our trend to be financially responsible to our tax payers while at the same time providing quality services to our residents, Edmunds said. In other action items, the council: Voted 3-2 against instating a raise for the City Council in the coming fiscal year. The ordinance called for the mayor to receive $10,500 and each council member to receive $8,500. The proposed pay increase, which was discussed at several workshops over the summer during the budget review process, would have been in line with comparable-sized cities in Pinellas County. Mayor Leslie Waters, and Councilors Jim Quinn and Bob Matthews voted against the proposed raises while Councilors Chris Burke and Vice Mayor Thom Barnhorn voted in favor of them.

He discussed his decision to retire from the position after more than 20 years. This past summer, he announced that he would retire in January 2015. After some strong support from the mayor and [City] Council Ive decided to delay that to August 2015, he said. He added, Theyve given me quite a list of things to do between now and then. Edmunds said there are a number of city projects that hell oversee and get off the ground before he retires. Construction continues at the site of the Bay Pines redevelopment project, where a new Walmart opened this summer. A hotel and additional housing both apartments and houses are slated for the site, he said, and ground recently broke for a steakhouse that will be built there. Construction is also under way at Seminole City Park, where the former City Hall building was partially demolished to make way for a new Community Center. The new building will include a Seminole Historical Society museum, a banquet hall that will be available for public rental and city storage space. Waterfront Park, which will be located at 10400 Park Blvd. on an 8-acre lot next to Home Depot, is another exciting project, Edmunds said. The park will include a kayak and canoe launch.Suspicious substance found at Bay Pines VA facility By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE A Sept. 24 mass casualty exercise conducted by the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, and local law enforcement and first responder units was interrupted when a suspicious substance was found inside the Release of Information Office, said Seminole Fire Rescue Chief Heather Burford. The substance was discovered by an RIO employee around 10:30 a.m., Burford said, and the C.W. Bill Young V.A. Medical Center Emergency Room, which is located next to the RIO, was evacuated. Fifteen people were decontaminated before VA police determined that the substance was non-hazardous. The mysterious substance, which was found in a package being mailed from the VAs hospice program, originated from an ornament that had softened and crumbled en route to its destination off campus. The clay token, which features the imprint of a foot, is traditionally sent to families of individuals who pass away in hospice care, Burford said. The substance had already been sent to a laboratory in Tampa when a hospice employee confirmed that the substance came from the ornament. Its one of those things where until you verify something like that you err on the side of caution, Burford said.Photo courtesy of BRAD DYKENSPinellas County Hazardous Materials team members dress in protective suits prior to entering the area of where a suspicious substance was found at the Bay Pines VA on Sept. 24 See BAY PINES, page 4ACounty Commission passes millage rates and budgets By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners made no changes to tentative millage rates and budgets before unanimously adopting them all, one-by-one, during a Sept. 23 public hearing. No millage rate increases were included in budgets for fiscal year 2014-2015, as reflected in the Truth in Millage notices sent out from the Property Appraiser Aug. 22. The general fund countywide millage rate remains at 5.2755 mills. The general fund pays most of the countys operating expenses. The FY 2015 general fund budget is just over $590.4 million, up $14.4 million (or 2.5 percent) from FY 2014. A pay raise of 3 percent for all eligible county employees will come from general fund allocations. General fund revenue also will pay for increased funding for the Sheriffs Office, Veterans Services Department, dental care programs and other needs. Residents living in unincorporated Pinellas will continue to pay a Municipal Services Taxing Unit millage rate of 2.0957 mills. Millage rates also remain unchanged for the health department, Pinellas Planning Council, Emergency Medical Services and the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative. The budget includes a new taxing district to pay for recreation services in the East Lake community. The millage rate was set at 0.25 mills. The only other change is a reduction in the millage rate for the Dunedin Fire District due to completion of the new fire station. The FY 2015 countywide budget is just over $1.92 billion up $148.9 million, or 8.4 percent, compared to 2014. Increased property values account for the biggest influx of new dollars in the countys coffers. Some residents may have higher tax bills, despite the lack of millage rate increases.More money for veterans servicesThe Rev. Bob Swick, chairman and CEO for the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance, thanked commissioners for the increased funding for veterans services. Swick joined other local veterans, service providers as well as state officials in chastising the commission for a restructuring of countys services. Veterans complained for months about the changes and the resulting backlog. Plans by two former employees to consolidate Veterans Services with Health and Community Services resulted in a reduction in staff and fewer certified veterans services officers. The county reversed the failed consolidation and Veterans Services Division became a separate program again in June. In FY 2015, the division will have 6.5 full time employees and will receive $663,720 in funding the highest historical staffing and budget level for Veterans Services, according to the budget message from County Administrator Mark Woodard. Thank you for the vote of confidence to rectify an error that took place, Swick said. Swick said 25 percent or more of the countys population are veterans a number that is expected to grow in the coming years as Florida takes steps to be more veteran friendly. Swick pointed out that the 25 percent did not include veterans spouses and family members. He said the increase in staffing takes the county back to where it was two to three years ago, which would allow the division to reach out and touch veterans who are unable to come in to the office. At the first public hearing Sept. 11, members of Faith in Action in Strength Together, turned out to ask the commission to increase funding for adult dental health to $4.3 million. The commission added $500,000 to the budget for that purpose, but FAST said it wasnt COMMUNITYMom 2 MomFor the past few years, Ive been wondering just how common it is to have your kids go to the same elementary school you went to when you were a kid. I never attended any of my parents schools, not even their college, which seems to be a little more popular these days. But both of my girls go to the same elementary school I went to when I was younger.

According to investigators, a group of individuals are targeting elderly residents in Pinellas County.

AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 2A EDMUNDS, from page 1AEarlier this month, the city was offered a $500,000 grant from the Lurie family to build a multi-purpose facility in Seminole, potentially at the planned Waterfront Park. This building would house not only the chamber, but also will offer a permanent home to city civic organizations. The city is also getting ready to renovate the last of its fire stations, which have all been upgraded in recent years, Edmunds said. Fire Station 32, located on 110th Avenue, will cost about $1.7 million to renovate and the project is currently under architectural design. But what the project people seem the most excited about, he said, is the Seminole Mall redevelopment. In July, the malls new owners, North American Development Group and Primerica Group One, laid out their plans to tear down the existing mall to make way for a modern, outdoor shopping center that will include a movie theater, fitness center, restaurants, retail and a bank. While residents and business owners might be eager to see the project get started, Edmunds said theres still a lot for the City Council to consider, including the public participation in funding the project. Those [kinds of] projects are very, very complicated and its maybe more complicated because of the public nature of the project, he said. Still, he said, the council and the developers are hoping to have an agreement in place before the end of the year so redevelopment, which is estimated to take about three years, can begin in the first quarter of 2015. City Manager Frank Edmunds at the Seminole Chamber of Commerces Sept. 25 luncheon at St. Petersburg College.Photo by GRETCHEN CAIN WELLS The emergency drill began at 8 a.m. and was nearly over when the suspicious package was found, she added. It was interesting, she said, because we were about two hours into the drill. Because responders were already there, it was an easy transition into a real incident. The drill, which focused on a scenario where a chemical was released in the medical center and featured 12 patients, tested the HazMat and mass casualty capabilities of local first responders as well as VA personnel. Community agencies participating in the exercise included Seminole Fire Rescue, Treasure Island Fire Department, Lealman Fire and Rescue, Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Pinellas County Hazardous Materials Response Team and Sunstar Ambulance. As required by The Joint Commission, Bay Pines VA participates in two emergency exercises annually, one of which must involve the participation of community agencies.

I agree that we should get a raise, Quinn said. I agree that we should have been getting a raise every year that the city employees have been getting a raise. But I dont agree that we should be getting $8,500. Instead, the councils raises should have been based on what city employees received, Quinn said, which would be less than $8,500. Approved a formal procedure related to how the city funds out-of-state travel by the mayor and council members. In this new procedure, the mayor is entitled to city-funded out-of-state travel, while council members must submit their requests for out-of-state trips in advance and have them approved by the council in a majority vote. The mayor would also have the authority to designate a mayoral replacement for city-funded out-of-state travel. The ordinance passed 4-1, with Burke being the sole no vote. But there was some discussion over the legality of the procedure change prior to its approval. Councilor Patricia Plantamura, who missed the meeting because she was attending an ethics conference in Orlando, sent an email to City Attorney John Elias, Edmunds and the City Council prior to the meeting questioning whether the proposed change would violate the city charter by creating administrative and executive duties for the mayor. My opinion is that the proposed ordinance that has been read by title by the city clerk does not violate the City Charter, Elias said at the meeting. Gregory Plantamura, Patricia Plantamuras husband, read a statement written by his wife during the public hearing. In the statement, she wrote that she had sought legal counsel on the matter, and would vote no on the matter if she had been present. It is general understanding that local ordinances are to be created or modified as a result of the needs or desires of the community at large, and ordinances are made to affect the health, safety and welfare of the community, she wrote. This proposed change in ordinance is arbitrary and has no such community effect. Passed seven code changes, mostly related to land development and compliances with the Federal Clean Water Act. Community Development Director Mark Ely said the city code hasnt been thoroughly updated since 1991.

Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark mailed 2,696 ballots to overseas voters Sept. 19; another 252,000 went out Tuesday, Sept. 30, to domestic voters who have requested a ballot. All eligible voters can request a ballot by mail by visiting www.votepinellas.com, calling 727-464VOTE (464-8683), or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and include date of birth. The deadline to request a ballot to be mailed is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29. The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 4 election is Monday, Oct. 6. Visit www.votepinel las.comor call 727-464-VOTE for more information. Early voting is scheduled from Oct. 20-Nov. 2.On the ballotTheres a lot to decide by Nov. 4. Floridians will elect a governor and lieutenant governor, attorney general, chief financial officer and commissioner of agriculture. Pinellas County will pick a representative to serve in congress, as well as state senators and representatives. Voters will pick two new representatives to serve on the Board of County Commissioners. In nonpartisan races, voters will decide who will serve as a judge for the District Court of Appeals and fill two seats on the school board. Board members will be elected to serve four different fire districts. Municipal elections also are taking place in Dunedin, Largo and Seminole. Then, there are the ballot questions. The one attracting the most local attention is the referendum question on Greenlight Pinellas, a plan to fund the countys transit needs, improve bus service and build a rail system using a 1 percent sales tax instead of ad valorem taxes, which funds Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority now. Floridians all will decide on three constitutional amendments. The first is a request to dedicate funds to acquire conservation and recreation land. If passed, 33 percent of net revenues from existing excise tax for the next 20 years would be dedicated toward acquiring, restoring, improving and managing of conservation lands. The second is to allow the use of marijuana for certain medical conditions. A licensed state physician would determine the use and caregivers would be allowed to assist patients with the medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health would be in charge of regulating the production and distribution. The third question involves requirements under which the governor can prospectively fill vacancies in a judicial office. Examples are reaching retirement age or not qualifying for election. Charter amendments also will be found on the ballots of voters in Kenneth City, Largo, Seminole and St. Petersburg. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4.District 13 candidate withdrawsEd Jany, candidate for the office of Representative in Congress, District 13, has withdrawn.

Bob Swick, chairman and CEO for the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance, thanks Pinellas County Commissioners Sept. 23 for the increased funding for veterans services included in the FY 2015 budget.Pinellas unemployment down in August By SUZETTE PORTERTALLAHASSEE Pinellas Countys unemployment was 6.3 percent in August down from 6.4 in July, according to the Sept. 19 report from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The not-seasonally-adjusted figures continue to show an improvement in the local unemployment rate. In August 2013, the countys unemployment was 7.2 percent. The states not-seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate showed a slight increase, going from 6.2 percent in July to 6.3 percent in August. Nationally, unemployment decreased to 6.1 percent in August compared to 6.2 percent in July. The states not-seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate in August 2013 was 7.4 percent, and the national rate was 7.3 percent. Gov. Rick Scott touted the growth in manufacturing jobs in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area. According to a press release from the governors office, the local MSA added 15,100 new jobs in August compared to 2013 the fifth highest number of new jobs among all metro areas in the state and the most jobs of all metro areas in the manufacturing industry. Were thrilled to continue to see both positive job growth and a decreasing unemployment rate in the Tampa area over the year, Scott said. The unemployment rate for the local MSA remained unchanged from July, holding steady at 6.8 percent, down from 7.4 percent in August 2013. The MSA includes Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. Industries gaining the most jobs in the Tampa Bay MSA were trade, transportation and utilities with 6,100 new jobs and professional and business services with 6,000 new jobs. The manufacturing industry added 2,000 jobs, the most in the state. The governors press release also said that the local MSA led the way in online job demand in August with 44,025 openings. It also was first in the state in demand for high way and high skill STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) jobs. Of the counties in the Tampa Bay MSA, Hernando continues to report the highest unemployment, ranking No. 6 out of 67 with a rate of 8.8 percent. Pasco ranked No. 20 with 7.5 percent unemployment. Hillsborough County ranked No. 33 with 6.7 percent unemployment and Pinellas was ranked at No. 42. Hendry County continues to rank No. 1 with the highest unemployment rate at 13.1 percent. Monroe County ranks No. 67 with the lowest rate of 3.9 percent. The Tampa Bay MSA ranked No. 9 out of 23 with the Palm Coast ranking No. 1 with 9.5 percent unemployment and Crestview-Ft. Walton Beach-Destin MSA ranked No. 23 with a rate of 4.9 percent. Out of a labor force of 453,489, 28,737 were unemployed in Pinellas County in August. In July, 29,132 were unemployed out of a labor force of 455,379. In August 2013, 32,031 were unemployed out of a labor force of 446,303. The Department of Economic Opportunity continues to point out signs that the economy is improving. The creation of 23,000 private-sector jobs in Florida last month is another strong chapter in Floridas economic turnaround story, said DEO Executive Director Jesse Panuccio. With measurable growth last month in the manufacturing and business and professional services industries, we can see that our efforts to foster the creation of high-skill, high-wage jobs are paying off for Florida families. But Florida is not out of the recovery phase from the Great Recession. According to Chris McCarty, Survey director, for the University of Florida Survey Research Centers Bureau of Economic and Business Research, an August report shows a consistent signal that the economy is running at a steady pace. It also suggests that the Florida economy is not growing rapidly.Taste of Clearwater event celebrates 25 years on Oct. 9 By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER The 25th annual Taste of Clearwater event is coming to the Westfield Countryside Mall on Thursday, Oct. 9, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. People will have the chance to sample delicious food from more than 23 local restaurants, said Rachel Farinas, events and communication manager of the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce. Theyre all fantastic, and we have some local favorites but also some new restaurants that have come into town that are smaller and really trying to get their name out there, Farinas said. Some of the old favorites are Frenchys and the Baystar Restaurant Group restaurants, such as Island Way Grill and Rumba, she said. Some of the new culinary faces include Ohana Caf, Green Mint Asian Grill, and First Watch. For the second year in a row, the event will take place at the Westfield Countryside Mall, 27001 U.S. 19 N., and will mostly be set up from the ice skating rink toward Sears, on both the first and second floors. People can reserve tickets either online or at the event itself, which buys a wristband that then gives free admittance to all of the restaurants. Farinas emphasized that this is not one of the kinds of events where people must pay each time they want to sample a new restaurant. Cost for members of the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce or the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association is $25. Cost for general admission is $35; groups of five or more cost $20 per person; and groups of 20 or more people cost $15 each. Farinas said the mall is an ideal location, especially for the restaurants involved, because it provides extra exposure. They get the exposure of our attendees but also the general public of the mall, Farinas said. We saw great exposure last year. Those who are walking through the mall who may not have known about the event see it going on and want to come and try all the restaurants. So the restaurant participants definitely see that exposure, whether its from someone who bought a ticket or someone from the general public who see their banner as theyre walking by. Likewise, the event benefits the city as a whole, she said, because of providing exposure of some of the many things the city has to offer. Its a chance to expose the public to restaurants they may not have heard of or havent tried yet, getting them to visit them in the future, which in turn helps stimulate the local economy. It is estimated that between 600 and 750 people will participate in the event. Anyone with questions may call Farinas at 461-0011, ext. 229. Visit www.TBNweekly.comenough.Donna Davis was the only representative of FAST that spoke Sept. 23. Were very disappointed it is only going to be $500,000, she said. She repeated the message that $4.3 million was needed to provide services to the working poor. Youve advocated for the children, but we have to take care of the parents, she said. We have wonderful facilities but they are lacking funding. She promised FAST would return with its request next year. The $500,000 in recurring money is intended to provide dental care to uninsured county residents beyond the current care that gives only limited pain relief. Currently, clients with diabetes and heart conditions are eligible for the limited care. The county is working with its stakeholders to come up with a better way to offer basic dental care to low income residents. More than 6,000 visited emergency rooms in 2012, which cost $7.6 million. The FY 2015 budget also includes one-time dollars of $70,000 to support a dental sealant program sponsored by the Juvenile Welfare Board. The money will assist JWBs goal to provide four to six dental sealants for 1,000 students at 12 elementary schools. Commission Chair Karen Seel thanked fellow commissioners and staff for the work done on next years balanced budgets. I thank you for the unanimous vote, she said. I thank staff for all their hard work. She pointed out that Pinellas was the most fiscally prudent county in the state. Our only debt is the sewer system, the rest is pay-as-we-go, she said. Were clearly mindful were spending the taxpayers money.

Seel brought the matter before the board Sept. 23. She said although the next years chair and vice chair are usually selected in November, she would like to pick earlier than that. She said the early selection was needed since vice chair Susan Latvala was not running for re-election and normally, the vice chair moved into the chairs position. That wont be happening next year. Were losing Susan Nov. 4, she said. Seel asked that a vice chair be selected to serve from Nov. 5 to 18 or Nov. 5 to Dec. 31. Im still here until Nov. 18, Latvala said. The new person will be sworn in on my last day of service. Commissioner Ken Welch moved that Commissioner John Morroni become vice chair as of Nov. 18 and then chair for 2015. Thats disingenuous to new commissioners, Latvala said. She said the commission had always allowed the new board to make that decision. They get sworn in and then elect the new chair and vice chair, Latvala said. She added, This is no reflection on Mr. Morroni. Morroni agreed that the new board had always picked, saying when he was first elected to the commission, he didnt know who would be the right person to serve in those positions. He said he went along with the majority. It was uncomfortable, he said. Three new commissioners came on board in 2000 Latvala, Morroni and Welch. Seel also was elected for the first time in 2000. She began her service with a governors appointment to the commission in 1999. But, the candidates up for election to fill two spots Latvalas and the seat held by Commissioner Norm Roche, who was defeated in the primary know all of us, he said. He asked how the transition (from the current chair, Seel) would work without knowing who would be chair next year. Its not a big deal, Latvala said. Im fine with selecting a vice chair now, but I think the new people should weigh in on the chair, Commissioner Janet Long said, adding that she would not be able to attend the Nov. 18 meeting. Roche objected, saying the process of selecting the chair and vice chair keeps changing. He said the process of the vice chair becoming the chair had been ongoing for years. Youve been playing that a long time, he said. He added that it was important that newly elected commissioners get to decide. Welch withdrew his motion, and then moved that Morroni serve as vice chair from Nov. 18 to Dec. 31. Nov. 18 is the first scheduled commission meeting after the Nov. 4 election. The commission voted 6-1 in support of Welchs motion. Roche abstained. Latvala has represented District 4 on the Board of County Commissioners since 2000. Four candidates are vying for her job Republican Dave Eggers, Democrat Mark Weinkrantz and noparty-affiliated candidates Marcus Harrison and Carl Folkman. Republican Ed Hooper and Democrat Pat Gerard are running for Roches seat.Administrators contract approvedThe commission voted unanimously to approve the contract with new county administrator Mark Woodard. Seel, who negotiated with Woodard on behalf of the commission, announced that the contract called for a salary of $235,000. And the same benefits of any other county employee, she said. Woodard refused travel benefits and deferred compensation that had been part of the former administrators salary package. This was the easiest negotiation Ive ever been through, Seel said. In other business, commissioners: approved changes to the ordinance regulating high prescribing health clinics in the county, including another one-year extension. approved advertising an Oct. 21 public hearing on an interlocal service boundary agreement with nine municipalities. approved the master fire services agreement with eight municipalities for fire protection service in 10 fire districts. approved multiple agreements for health and community services.

Latvala, Seel, Welch and Morroni were elected to the commission in 2000. Seel was appointed by the governor to fill an unexpired term in 1999 and was elected to continue her service in 2000. County newsPinellas County honors fire professionals CLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners named the recipients of the inaugural Fire Service Professionals of the Year awards at the Sept. 23 meeting. The awards are given to those who go above and beyond the call of duty when providing professional fire services to the community and to the members of the fire service. Pinellas County 911 Telecommunicator Patrick Lavender was named Fire Dispatcher of the Year. Lavender routinely assists fellow call takers with radio communications to dispatched units and improving response time by working to better identify locations of victims. When one person stands out, its because everyone is that good around them. You want to do your best for the people that you work with, said Lavender Largo Fire Rescue District Chief Keith Daliendo was named Firefighter of the year. Chief Daliendo is often tasked with making process improvements within his fire station and is relied upon to provide training for the newest to the most experienced members of his department.

The group packed the Pinellas County courthouse in Clearwater Sept. 11 and returned in fewer numbers Sept. 23 to plead with commissioners to defer the higher bills until next year. County staff explained that the tax rolls had already been certified, meaning the bills cant be changed; however, adjustments can be made based on credits for reducing a properties impact on the stormwater system. Staff also is adjusting the credit policy to allow for unique characters of mobile home parks and the trailers themselves. When the county implemented its stormwater fees for fiscal year 2013-2014, some bills were inaccurate, including many mobile home parks. Since those bills were issued, county staff has digitized its data, enabling better calculations of impervious surfaces (that water cannot penetrate). When water from rain, sprinklers and other sources hits impervious surfaces it runs off, eventually making its way to stormwater drains, ditches, ponds where it continues into other waterways, then on to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Pollutants contained in the run off affect the work staff is doing to maintain water quality standards set for the federal and state governments. Keeping the water clean is an expensive measure, and standards are getting stricter. The surface water fee provides a dedicated funding source for maintenance and operations of the countys stormwater systems. Still commissioners were concerned when they learned that for some, bills had gone up as much as 340 percent over last year. Kelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, explained Sept. 11 that last years bills were incorrect incomplete. This years assessments are more accurate, she said. They include all impervious surfaces roads, swimming pools, sidewalks, patios, shuffleboard courts and other structures. Commissioners asked staff to look at removing roadways inside the park and recalculate the bills. Staff did as commissioners asked and also removed walkways in the park to make assessments in mobile home parks be more in line with those for single-family residences. In some cases, bills went down by half the original assessment. Still, mobile home residents, many seniors on a fixed income are facing rent increases of $8 or more a month as property owners pass on the expense. Staff did a good job, said Todd Pressman, representing a conglomerate of mobile home parks. But theres room for improvement. Pressman and other speakers asked that the county consider additional measures to reduce the fee for those who provide affordable housing. He said it could cost thousands of dollars to provide information required to get surface water credits. He said mobile home parks had unique features, such as pervious surfaces underneath the homes. Levy agreed that mobile home parks could have unique features that might qualify them for credits. They need to demonstrate that, she said. Consumers pay for everything, said Commissioner Susan Latvala. This is no different. It is a property tax. Somebody has to pay. It is the way business operates. She said the question is how to make the surface water fee fair to everyone. We havent seen this today, she added. David Scott, DEI director, said staff had done everything the commission had requested in an attempt to make things fair, but at the same time address the need to capture the full contribution properties are making to the stormwater system. Frank Torres, a resident of Oakcrest Mobile Home Park in Largo, told commissioners that the fee increase was a hardship. Im on Social Security. A lot of these people are on Social Se-Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERKelli Levy, Natural Resources Section manager for the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, explains how surface water fees are calculated at a Sept. 23 meeting. He said the majority of properties in the county had not experienced huge spikes in their bills. This is a problem, but it is not big, he said. The commission agreed to assemble a committee to talk about ways to issue credits for surface water measures, such as retention ponds. Meanwhile, residents who have an issue should contact Levys office at 464-8759. Seel pointed out that those who rent mobile homes needed to contact the propertys owner or manager, who needs to apply for credits. curity, he said. He said people considered mobile homes as affordable housing. He said his bill was going up $8.52 a month. Ill have to take one day a week and not eat because I have to pay this extra, he said. Commission Chair Karen Seel brought up a plan she tried to instigate last year, but was foiled by the former county administrator. She wants to set up a we care fund to help people on limited incomes pay their bills. The folks in this room have a problem, Commissioner Ken Welch said. We need to find a solution. He said staff had done some good work, but there is more to be done. LOCAL NEWSwww.TBNweekly.com

These restrictions limit reclaimed water irrigation during authorized hours to three days per week based on house number. Restrictions for reclaimed water irrigation are in effect from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30. Since late May, north Pinellas County reclaimed water customers have been under an extended reduced availability two days per week schedule. Through the successful implementation of reclaimed water conservation measures and the return of seasonal rainfall, the storage levels in north county have returned to normal. Therefore, all Pinellas County Utilities reclaimed water customers may water according to the seasonal restrictions below. Addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8): Tuesday, Thursday and/or Saturday; addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9): Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday; addresses with mixed or no addresses, such as common areas associated with a residential subdivision: Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday. Lawn irrigation is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and on Monday. Pinellas County Utilities customers are encouraged to follow these restrictions throughout the year to promote a healthy, drought-tolerant lawn with deep roots. These restrictions are mandatory during Floridas traditional dry seasons from April through June and October through November. Violations of these restrictions may result in a $193 fine. For more information on reclaimed water, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utili ties/reclaim-irrigation.htm, or call 727-464-4000.Pinellas Clerk hosts domestic violence educational forumThe public is invited to attend a Domestic Violence Educational Forum hosted by the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller on Monday, Oct. 27, 6 to 8 p.m., at the Pinellas County Justice Center, 14250 49th St. N, Clearwater, in the Jury Assembly room.

In addition, volunteer lawyers will be available to provide free legal advice on injunctions and family related matters. October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness month. It is a time to shed some much-needed light on an issue that affects everyone, not just the victim. The opportunity to connect with the community through outreach and awareness events help everyone spread the reality of this serious and preventable crime. One in four women and one in seven men have experienced domestic violence in their lifetime. More than three million children are exposed to domestic violence every year. Intimate partner violence is most common against women between the ages of 18-24. Domestic violence is one of the most chronically underreported crimes. Persons interested in participating should call the Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Courts office at 727-464-3341 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

According to investigators, a group of individuals are targeting elderly residents in Pinellas County. The telephone scam has been in existence for a while and has been called several different names. During the phone scam, the caller identifies themselves as a relative or someone trying to help a relative. The caller is careful not to initially mention a specific persons name, instead engages the victim as if they are the victims grandchild or similar type relative. Eventually the confused victim will mention their relatives name while trying to gather additional information. At times the callers will describe the relative as being in an accident, getting arrested, needing to pay fines or a lawyer or having some sort of gambling debt which needs to be paid immediately. The caller will ask for the money to be sent to distant locations, sometimes out of the country. The suspects will then send a runner with fake identification to pick up the funds, work with a collusive merchant or use other methods to avoid being caught. Detectives encourage residents, if a call such as this is received, to verify the identity of the person calling before completing any transaction. Speak to another relative, law enforcement or other trusted source for assistance. Also consider using your personal bank for the completion of any valid reason to send money. If you have been a victim of this crime or have any information on these phone scams, call Detective Bingham of the Economic Crimes Unit at 727-582-6200.Teen arrested for sexual batteryST. PETERSBURG A 15-year-old St. Petersburg teen was arrested Sept. 25 after admitting to detectives that he had sexually battered a 4year-old girl. Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives said the incidents occurred on two separate occasions at a private residence in the county. Detectives began their investigation on Thursday, Sept. 25, after the victim disclosed to deputies that the suspect had sexually battered her. Deputies talked to the victim during an unrelated call and contacted detectives once the victim disclosed that the suspect had sexually battered her while she was in his care. Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit, identified the suspect as Matthew Wilson. Detectives met with Wilson Sept. 25, and he admitted to the allegations, according to the sheriffs report. Wilson was charged with one count of capital sexual battery and was transported to the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Center.Bicyclist injured when hit by carCLEARWATER A bicyclist was seriously injured when a car struck him just after noon Tuesday, Sept. 23, on NE Coachman Road in Clearwater. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, John Matzke, 40, of Clearwater was transported to St. Josephs Hospital. Matzke was traveling westbound on NE Coachman Road (State Road 590) approaching Old Coachman Road in front of a 1999 Toyota Camry driven by Christopher McBride, 24, of St. Petersburg. As McBride traveled through the intersection, Matzke made a left turn into his path and the car struck the bicycle. Matzke was ejected from his bicycle onto the hood and windshield of the Camry. Charges are pending.Man dies after shooting, car crashCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team are investigating a vehicle crash and the drivers self-inflicted gunshot wound. According to the sheriffs report posted Wednesday, Sept. 24, the crash occurred at State Road 60 west of County Road 611. No time was listed. The report said a deputy patrolling the area of Baby Dolls, 133833 U.S. 19 N., heard a single gunshot and observed a vehicle leaving the parking lot. The deputy followed the vehicle onto U.S. 19 where deputies attempted a traffic stop at Haines Bayshore Road and U.S. 19. The vehicle, a 2011 Red Chevy Cruz, did not stop and fled from the deputies. The Sheriffs helicopter responded and continued to follow the vehicle. The vehicle headed eastbound over the Courtney Campbell Bridge then made a U-turn and returned westbound. Deputies were able to deploy stop sticks at Damascus Road and State Road 60, which the suspect drove over. The red 2011 Chevy Cruze continued westbound on State Road 60 after striking the stop sticks. After passing County Road 611 the vehicle crossed over into the eastbound lanes and then struck a large billboard sign post and a tree coming to rest on its roof on the sidewalk, on the south side of State Road 60. The driver, James A. Smith, 22, was transported to Mease Countyside where he was pronounced dead. Through the investigation it was determined the driver suffered from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Deputies did locate a firearm in the vehicle.Special Victims Unit wins FDLE awardMembers of the Pinellas Sheriffs Special Victims Unit, the Clearwater Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security, as part of the Clearwater/Tampa Bay Human Trafficking Taskforce, recently were awarded the 2013-2014 Florida Missing Childrens Day Law Enforcement Task Force/Team of the Year. The award was presented at the State Capitol in Tallahassee. The Clearwater/Tampa Bay Human Trafficking Task Force were recognized for their exemplary work in a 2013 online sexual predator case in which the suspect intended to take the victim, a 16-year-old female, out of state with the intent of sexually abusing her. The multi-agency investigation led to the arrest of Carlos Santiago Garcia, 22, of Oldsmar Dec. 15, 2013. The arrest was made in Clearwater as he and the victim were putting luggage into the trunk of his car. Garcia was arrested for interference with child custody, traveling to meet a minor, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and use of computer services prohibited. The Task Force was recognized for their proactive sharing of information. The investigation illustrates how local and federal law enforcement working together by sharing information, ideas and responsibilities stopped an online predator from taking the minor out of state for the purpose of engaging her in unlawful sexual activity.Local K-9 teams complete detector schoolSeven K9 teams from four Pinellas County agencies recently completed their two-month K9 detector school. The detector school began on Aug. 4 and concluded Sept. 25. K9 teams from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, Tarpon Springs Police Department, Pinellas Park Police Department, Largo Police Department and Clearwater Police Department took part in the training at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office K9 Compound, 3410 118th Ave. in Pinellas Park. The 320-hour course trained the K9s to detect either drug odor or explosive material odor. All of the teams are currently patrol certified and have been working patrol K9 related tasks, to include tracking and suspect apprehension for the past year to two years. Once the K9 teams show proficiency in their patrol related tasks they are able to be dual certified in the skill of drug or bomb detection. The K9s assigned detection specialty is determined based on the needs of their agency. The K9s are trained to alert to the presence of multiple drug odors or multiple bomb odors. The K9s are made familiar with the odors they will be trained to detect and imprinted as a rewarding odor through various retrieve type exercises with scented tug towels. The K9s are not the only one learning new skills. Their handlers are taught topics regarding K9 training and behavior, K9 senses, record keeping, courtroom testimony, legalities of detection deployments and drug or bomb material recognition. For the K9 team to successfully complete their training and graduate, the K9 has to demonstrate clear alert behavior to the trained odors and tracing them to a source. The handler must then demonstrate the ability to interpret properly those behaviors. All the teams must also pass a proficiency examination proctored by independent FDLE certified K9 evaluators. All seven K9 teams that took part in this recent training passed their evaluations and are now dual certified.

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.

PETERSBURG Scientists, policy makers and business leaders will converge for the Climate Science and Solutions Summit on Monday, Oct. 6, 1:30 to 5 p.m., at Fox Hall at Eckerd College, 4200 54th Ave. S. This summit is a result of the meeting that five scientists had with Gov. Rick Scott in August. Last week, more than 40 scientists sent an open letter to policy makers calling for a climate change solutions summit. Attendees at the Oct. 6 summit at Eckerd College will hear about successful initiatives that are addressing climate change and creating jobs. The summit will bring together business leaders, lawmakers and the public to talk about job creation opportunities in the new low-carbon economy. The summit, which is free and open to the public, is hosted by Eckerd College in partnership with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and the Natural Resources Defense Council. It is crucial for lawmakers to consider science when making important policy decisions, said David Hastings, Ph.D., in a press release. Hastings is an Eckerd College professor of marine science and one of the scientists who met with the governor. Their expertise regarding the current and future threats to Florida is vital. In last weeks open letter to all Florida policymakers, the scientists called for an action plan: Key to that is detailed information regarding the specific climate change impacts already affecting Florida so optimal plans for mitigating future impacts may be formulated, while simultaneously preparing Floridas communities and businesses for the changes already underway, and almost certain to accelerate in coming years.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, October 2, 2014Its candidate debate season. Just about a month out from the election, which this year is Nov. 4, it begins to dawn on people: Oh, theres an election coming up in a month. Wonder whos running, and what they stand for? Civic clubs, special-interest groups and news media are eager to step in to help voters get to know the candidates and whats at stake by offering public debates. At St. Petersburg College, were joining the effort by presenting a candidate debate on Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N. SPCs Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions is partnering with the Tampa Bay Times to engage the candidates for the Pinellas County Commission and state Legislature in a series of debates from 6 to 9 p.m. I hope readers will turn out to get to know those who seek to represent them in county and state government. Television commercials and mailed fliers aside, a live debate is perhaps the best way for voters to get to know the candidates. Besides putting candidates on the record on key issues, these events also test their knowledge of the issues, their ability to articulate a clear position, their skill in thinking on their feet, and a little bit about their personality. As a former journalist, I have been a moderator or panelist for numerous candidate debates over the years. And my experience is, you never know what might happen at these events. I recall one debate by candidates for a county commission seat (in another county) where one candidate showed up with stacks of position papers. Sweating profusely, he referred to the documents for virtually every question, as he obviously knew little about the issues. There was another debate when one of the candidates, after finishing his session, strolled out of the conference room and began pinching cuttings off the philodendrium plants that lined the atrium and stuffing them up his jacket sleeves.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSPSTA needs house cleaningEditor: As a result of recent disclosures, it is evident that we cannot trust Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority to manage the $2.2 billion Pinellas Greenlight mass transit system. Pinellas voters will vote on a referendum to raise Pinellas sales tax 1 percent in November. Recently, PSTA was required to re-pay the government $354,000 for misuse of federal funds and more recently, it was discovered that PSTA agreed to pay $180,000 toward cleaning up soil and water contamination at the site of its former St. Petersburg bus depot. Since Pinellas residents are not riding the buses, why should we raise taxes to provide more transportation? Rather than raising Pinellas County taxes to 8 percent, the highest sales tax in the state of Florida, I suggest that PSTA begin housecleaning and start with Brad Miller and Ken Welch. The sooner the better. Chuck Graham Pinellas ParkStop the Greenlight madnessEditor: In the words of a popular television personality: Stop the Madness. Greenlight Pinellas and its accompanying billion-dollar plus fiscally reckless planned light rail is just another taxpayer extortion referendum initiative. The pervasive stick-it-to-the-taxpayer mentality in Pinellas County must cease. As a former frequent PSTA rider, I have observed firsthand the preponderance of empty buses, and read in the newspaper skewed ridership counts (PSTA counts every transfer as a new rider). Also as a previous PSTA rider, I can express firsthand, that its rarely a pleasant experience when subjected to the following: unkempt individuals, riders with offensive body odors, profane language, unsanitary buses, crying babies, late buses, lippy bus drivers. Need I say more? Additionally, even if the referendum passes, and a bus is scheduled every 20 minutes, if new riders are subjected to any of the aforementioned, or feel unsafe (especially women) they will not ride again. Plain and simple. One million a month riding the train (which will not happen) at a hypothetical $3 per fare generates only $36 million per year. Can you say long-term indebtedness? Tony Riggs ClearwaterDo something, anything to improve public transportationEditor: I am a rail buff and public transportation believer. I used public transportation in Boston during high school and college; I have used the public systems in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle. They are a wonderful, welcome relief from the trauma of road gridlock and car costs. I am very skeptical that Greenlight Pinellas will deliver on the promised improvements. The history of the many transportation schemes in Pinellas County does not favor such fulfillment. Some of the unexplained down sides of the light-rail proposal: Right of way acquisition, eminent domain very likely. Not-in-my-backyard opposition to the right-of-way route and the acquisition process. Legal defense costs of the right-of-way, the acquisition process and NIMBY opposition. Right-of-way construction and maintenance costs. Equipment acquisition and maintenance costs. Hiring, training and retaining system operators and maintenance personnel. A fixed plan that can not be rerouted unlike buses, as needs and events evolve. Selling a tax increase to Pinellas County voters, essentially a rob Peter to pay Paul swap. In all the rhetoric about Greenlight Pinellas, the impact of climate change has been studiously avoided. When the light-rail line is under water due to rising sea levels, and Pinellas County is an island with fewer people, all the tax-for-trax will be gone forever. I will not live long enough to witness this event, or the desperate scramble to protect Pinellas County residents from that sea level rise. Having said all that, I will vote for Greenlight Pinellas, because we need to do something, anything, to improve public transportation in Pinellas County and relief from the trauma of road gridlock and car costs. If voters approve Greenlight Pinellas, I will support every effort to improve Pinellas County bus transportation, a much better use of tax dollars, and a far more flexible system to cope with evolving needs and events. Mike McDonald ClearwaterConsider a tax on yacht ownersEditor: There are ongoing decisions being made as to how to pay for the Treasure Island Bridge upkeep. The rumors about a tax increase and a bridge tool have been bantered about. These bridges are aesthetically unique and offer beautiful views of the waterways. Having to wait in long lines just to stop for a toll would be a total detriment to the tourist and residents of Treasure Island. It seems that I get stopped every time I cross over the TI drawbridge to wait for a sailboat to pass. No matter what day of the week or hour of the day, the drawbridge goes up and people wait with their cars running because it is too hot to turn the air conditioning off. I would like our local government to consider a tax or an assessment on yacht owners. It could be a charge for carbon emissions to pay for the bridges. That may sound crazy since yachters generally do not use much gas, but think about the lines of traffic waiting patiently for the one of two yachters, who have the luxury of sailing on a work day. Today, Sept. 9, I counted about 12 cars in the northbound lane and 16-18 cars on the southbound side waiting about 10 minutes while one single sailboat slowly navigated through the channel under the bridge. An idling car can release as much pollution as a moving car. For every 10 minutes your engine is off, youll prevent one pound of carbon dioxide from being released. Carbon dioxide is the primary contributor to global warming. Idling wastes fuel and money. An idling car uses between one-fifth to seven-tenths of a gallon of fuel an hour. Folks in yachts interrupt the flow of traffic merely for recreation purposes. Even without charging them more for their leisurely time fun, is catering to yachters over motorists really a luxury that Florida can afford? By my calculation the bridge opening recently put an unnecessary 29 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Multiply that by hundreds of Florida drawbridges and hundreds of openings a day. Georgia Hallman Treasure Island Most Americans like to be well informed. When a large or small event occurs, we want to know at least the basics of what happened and whats going on. One of the inventions for handling this desire is the press conference. A well-run press conference is a thing of beauty. The other kind can be a bungled, confusing disaster. The norm is for a senior official or a designated spokesperson to stand at a lectern while speaking into a microphone. The news media and the general public gather around and wait. Then, any of several things can happen. Ideally, the man or woman doing the talking will have a basic command of the English language and his/her own tongue and thought processes. The public address system will be working. The spokesperson will give the essential facts of the news event, and then if time allows will take questions. Many press conferences dont happen that way. The P.A. system squeals. Instead of having one person on the stage, the mayor or police chief has assembled eight or 10 department heads to stand behind him or her. No one knows why. These bored, often drowsy folks are usually window dressing, unless the mayor turns to one of them to supply added information. Occasionally, the spokesperson has a lisp or a stuttering problem, which makes it hard for listeners or viewers to understand. He/she fumbles, stumbles and stammers. Even when the speaker is precise, he may waste time with comments such as The thoughts and prayers of all of us go out to the family of Josiah Femstittle, who was injured in the. ... etc. Thats usually about six points shy of the truth, since very few of us actually knew Mr. Femstittle. Our primary thought is, Im just glad I wasnt in the truck when it ran off the bridge. So lets skip the flowery sentiments, shall we? Just give the facts. Other unneeded remarks, at least up front, are the self-serving compliments on how quickly first responders reached the scene of the accident. With rare exceptions, todays police, firefighters and EMS units are on their way to the trouble spot within a few seconds of being notified. So who cares whether the trip took three minutes or six? What counts is that the troops got their ASAP. The stopwatch statistics can wait until tomorrow. At some press conferences, a painful itch will be the news media rep who uses the Q. and A. period to show off with long-winded questions. If any reporter cant phrase his/her query in 50 words or less, he should go into politics, not the news business. An experienced spokesperson can sometimes quash a blowhard by succinctly rephrasing a gassy question, or by saying: We dont have that answer right now. Lets move on. The most effective press conferences are usually scheduled well in advance, so that news media can be notified and an appropriate venue chosen. Today, many organizations hire their own public relations or media specialists to set up press conferences, write news releases and carry out the dozens of other tasks needed to get the organizations message to the waiting world. The best P.R. people have worked as reporters or editors, and therefore know how to help and cope with news media. Unfortunately, many modern news conferences are slapdash affairs thrown together by someone who simply wants to see his face on TV or her name on a printed page. Today, any event may serve as a reason for a press conference, especially if the event involved human suffering. The death of a student athlete in a car crash may bring within 48 hours a front-yard TV interview with grieving family members or friends. The gist of the statements (He was a great guy) is usually unremarkable, but thats true of much of life, and news. I hope youll forgive my somewhat jaundiced view of press conferences. After several decades as a reporter, editor, columnist and P.R. man, I tend to be underwhelmed by todays avalanche of information being peddled as news or other useful information. Much of it is simply not either of these things. A citizens approach to any and all incoming data should be to ask a few pointed questions: Is this stuff possibly or probably true? Even so, do I need it to help me function? Can I check it out later, such as when I retire? Answers to these queries may not be easy to find. But theyre worth a try, and its better than drinking the Kool-Aid or buying into the okey-doke.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The lady informed me she intended to sue the newspaper to recover the cost of medical treatment she had required as a result of the newspapers endorsement editorial. Why would a newspaper endorsement require medical treatment, I asked? Because the article made me so angry that I flung the paper across the room and threw my shoulder out of joint. True stories, all. I cant promise anything like this at tomorrow nights debates, but I can promise some interesting, enlightening conversations with the men and women who seek your vote on Nov. 4. And really, dont we owe it to those brave folks who are willing to put themselves out there seeking public office to come out and learn who they are and what they stand for? It takes a great deal of courage and no doubt, self-esteem to stand up and say, I think I can be an effective leader. Pick me. They are, in effect, interviewing for a job representing us, in local government. Dont you want to sit in on the interview?David Klement is executive director of the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College. Thursdays candidate debate begins at 5:30 p.m. with an analysis of the Constitutional Amendments, followed by the candidate debates from 6 to 9 p.m. Television commercials and mailed fliers aside, a live debate is perhaps the best way for voters to get to know the candidates.Sit in on interviews with candidates

Community 19A Seminole Beacon, October 2, 2014 100214 A centennial school celebration has big meaning to a mom and her kidsFor the past few years, Ive been wondering just how common it is to have your kids go to the same elementary school you went to when you were a kid. I never attended any of my parents schools, not even their college, which seems to be a little more popular these days. But both of my girls go to the same elementary school I went to when I was younger. When my oldest daughter started kindergarten at the school, one of the teachers I had in fifth grade was still teaching. When I went to say hello, she teased me and said she was retiring because I made her feel old since my kids were now going to school there. She actually did retire the following year, so now there arent any of the teachers that were there when I was. My older daughter does have one of the teachers both my two sisters had when they went to school, which is pretty cool. The school I am talking about is Seminole Elementary School. If you live in Pinellas County, you probably know someone who has gone to school or worked there. Next year, the school will be 100 years old, so thousands of students have walked its halls. The oldest part of the school, which was built in 1915, is the building located off of Park Boulevard. When I went to school there, that particular building was the cafeteria. Today, the building is referred to as the centennial building and is used for the RClub, an afterschool program. I always laugh when I tell my youngest daughter a date in 19something, like my birthday or when I graduated from high school, she says to me, You mean back in the 19s? I guess when you are born in the 2000s, that was a long time ago. It seems like yesterday when I went to Seminole Elementary. I can remember how it was set up and where all the classrooms were. Today, the students have art in what was once the office. The office today is one of the newer buildings on campus, at the opposite end of where the office was when I was there. Even with all the changes, my oldest daughter is in the same fifthgrade classroom I was in when I was there. Whats exciting is she will be graduating from the school the year of the centennial celebration. I somehow ended up on the centennial celebration planning committee, which is something I enjoy helping out with given my history with the school. We have a date for the event, which will be held on the schools campus, on Saturday, May 2, 2015. The community is invited to attend the event. We want to reach out to prior students, teachers and administrators who were at Seminole Elementary. We plan on having the entertainment made up of prior students. We are looking for food vendors and sponsors for our event. If you want more information, you can email the planning committee at SeminoleES100@gmail.com or look on Facebook for Seminole Elementary School Centennial Celebration to get updates on the big days events. If youre interested in helping plan the event, meetings are held first Mondays, 3:15 p.m., at Seminole Elementary School, 10950 74th Ave. N., Seminole. Since I started to help plan for the centennial celebration, I am finding that more and more people in the community have gone to Seminole Elementary School. But I havent run into too many generations of families attending there.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The organization, based in Tampa, has a prevailing emphasis on the abolition of the domestic sex trafficking of minors. Tampa is ranked fifth in the United States for human trafficking. When representatives from the 100+ Women organization visited Sept. 26, Nascimento shared with that she was abused growing up and decided to leave a successful financial career to help young women who have been abused through human trafficking. She is extremely dedicated in fighting the state to recognize this problem and fund these support houses, explained 100+ Women organizer Julie Webster. For more information about Redefining Refuge, visit www.redefiningrefuge.org. Sarita Lastrapes nominated Redefining Refuge during the last quarterly meeting of 100+ Women Who Care Aug. 26. She also came to present the checks to the charity. During the August meeting, each woman who participated voted for their choice of three charities and then wrote a $100 check directly to the winner of the vote. With 75 participating, the group is getting closer to their goal of 100 members. The two other charities up for consideration were Angels Against Abuse, nominated by Sandy Kearney and Bethanne Harff, and the Christian Outreach Center, nominated by Donna Frazier. The 100+ Women Who Care Pinellas County meet quarterly to make a collective monetary impact on community charities, at Ready for Life, 4000 Gateway Centre Blvd., Suite 200, in Pinellas Park. Each member pledges $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket.

But on the occasion of their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing and those contours crack into a maze of fissures. Nick becomes the prime suspect, shrouded in a fog of suspicious behavior. Amy becomes the vaunted object of a media frenzy as the search for her, dead or alive, plays out before the eyes of a world thirsting for revelations. Just as Nick and Amy personified the quintessential romantic match, Amys disappearance has all the markings of an emblematic domestic American crime. But her vanishing becomes a kind of hall of mirrors in which tantalizing and savage secrets lead to tantalizing and savage secrets.Photo by ED ARAQUEL/EGOLI TOSSELL FILMJean Reno, left, and Simon Pegg star in Relativity Medias Hector and the Search for Happiness.

He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights and has invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide an alibi. It's foolproof what could possibly go wrong? Well ... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend.

Those eagerly anticipating the new music can get a taste of oldschool Floyd when the internationally-known tribute band The Australian Pink Floyd Show visits the Tampa Bay area on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $50.50. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerd hall.com. The Set the Controls Tour 2014 will draw heavily from the iconic Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Division Bell albums with anticipated performances of Comfortably Numb, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Time. There will also be an interactive element to the show where audience members will be asked to help choose the material that the band will play during certain sections of their two-hour set. Audiences can expect more than just a competent interpretation of Pink Floyds work. This show is billed as an audiovisual extravaganza featuring a multi-million dollar light show, multiple inflatables and stunning laser effects, all coupled with note-perfect renditions of Pink Floyds biggest hits. This show has already been seen by 4 million people. The name of the tour comes from Pink Floyds classic song Set The Controls for the Heart Of the Sun, which appeared on the bands A Saucerful of Secrets album. The Australian Pink Floyd Show will be performing Pink Floyd linchpins such as Another Brick In The Wall, Money and Wish You Were Here as well as a few surprise tracks. Lorelei McBroom will also be appearing on this tour. Her credentials are staggering: She toured with Pink Floyd on the Momentary Lapse of Reason and Delicate Sound of Thunder tours, appeared in the videos for The Dogs of War, On The Turning Away and the Pink Floyd Live In Venice TV broadcast. She also performed The Great Gig in the Sky with Pink Floyd, a song she will now perform with TAPFS. Colin Norfield is also aboard as sound engineer. He was FOH engineer on Pink Floyds final world tour and has since handled live sound for David Gilmour. The Australian Pink Floyd Show is constantly evolving and honing what they do, having enjoyed 25 years at the top of the game. The show boasts a round screen with intelligent lights arranged around its perimeter. During a concert, movies and animations are displayed on-screen, complementing the bands light show. Inflatables such as the pig used by Pink Floyd during the Division Bell Tour are frequently employed in the bands shows. The band formed in Adelaide, Australia, in 1988. The Australian Pink Floyd Show consists of Steve Mac, Jason Sawford, Colin Wilson, Dave Fowler, Alex McNamara, Paul Bonney, Mike Kidson, Lorelei McBroom, Lara Smiles and Emily Lynn. For those not completely convinced about the tribute bands quality, both Gilmour and Mason have bestowed praise upon them. TAPFS was personally asked by Gilmour to play at his private 50th birthday party; and mason recently told BBC Radio in an interview that the Australian Pink Floyd were probably better than us. Ruth Eckerd Hall welcomes the Australian Pink Floyd Show Oct. 8. The performance is billed as an audiovisual extravaganza.

As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasnt really tasted life, and yet hes offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and childlike curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results. Based on the world-wide bestselling novel of the same name, Hector and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom.Left BehindGenre: Action, adventure and thriller Cast: Nicolas Cage, Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, Nicky Whelan, Lea Thompson, Jordan Sparks, Quinton Aaron and Martin Klebba Director: Vic Armstrong Rated: PG-13 Left Behind is an apocalyptic action-thriller starring Nicolas Cage based on the New York Times bestselling novel that brings biblical prophecy to life in modern times. The most important event in the history of mankind is happening right now. In the blink of an eye, the biblical Rapture strikes the world. Millions of people disappear without a trace. All that remains are their clothes and belongings, and in an instant, terror and chaos spread around the world. The vanishings cause unmanned vehicles to crash and burn. Planes fall from the sky. Emergency forces everywhere are devastated. Gridlock, riots and looting overrun the cities. There is no one to help or provide answers. In a moment, the entire planet is plunged into darkness. The Steele family is caught on the razors edge of that darkness. Ray Steele, an airline pilot, struggles to calm, and ultimately to save the lives of the passengers that remain on his flight, as the world below loses its ability to help his plane, and any other to safety. Running out of fuel, his equipment failing, his crew escalating into panic, Ray must guide the plane with the help of GWN reporter, Cameron Buck Williams who takes over the role of co-pilot in the face of the crisis. For Buck Williams, being trapped at 30,000 feet with a plane full of terrified passengers means a struggle to understand the incomprehensible. On the ground, Rays daughter Chloe Steele struggles to find her young brother and mother, both of whom may have disappeared in the biblical event. Forcing herself through the chaos, Chloe must navigate a world filled with terror and despair.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Drive HardGenre: Action and adventure Cast: John Cusack and Thomas Jane Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith Not rated Former racecar driver Peter Roberts (Thomas Jane) traded the winners circle for a 9 to 5 job as a beginners driving instructor. But his life shifts into overdrive when Simon Keller (John Cusack) hijacks Peter to be his getaway driver in a $9 million heist.The Decent OneGenre: Documentary Director: Vanessa Lapa Not rated A recently discovered cache of hundreds of personal letters, diaries and photos belonging to the Nazi Gestapo chief seems to reveal a thoughtful, loving husband and devoted father to his daughter. The documents first found in the Himmler family house in 1945 were hidden in Tel Aviv for decades and sold to the father of the Israeli documentary filmmaker, Vanessa Lapa. Through readings of Himmlers and his familys most personal writings and rarely seen restored film footage from key German archives, Lapa has fashioned a fascinating case study: a portrait of the man responsible for some of the worst atrocities of the Second World War, who thought of himself in heroic terms.Men, Women & ChildrenGenre: Comedy, drama and romance Cast: Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris and Adam Sandler Director: Jason Reitman Rated: R Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the Internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the Internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose some tragic, some hopeful as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.The Blue RoomGenre: Drama Cast: Matthieu Amalric, Lea Drucker, Stephanie Cleau and Laurent Poitrenaux Director: Matthieu Amalric Not rated A man and a woman, secretly in love, alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words. The Good LieGenre: Drama Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal and Corey Stoll Director: Philippe Falardeau Rated: PG-13 They were known simply as The Lost Boys. Orphaned by the brutal civil war in Sudan, which began in 1983, these young victims traveled as many as a thousand miles on foot in search of safety. Fifteen years later, a humanitarian effort would bring 3,600 lost boys, as well as girls, to America. In The Good Lie, Philippe Falardeau brings the story of their survival and triumph to life. Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon stars alongside Sudanese actors Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, and newcomer Kuoth Wiel, some of whom were also children of war. Mamere and Theo are sons of the Chief in their village in Southern Sudan. When an attack by the Northern militia destroys their home and kills their parents, eldest son Theo is forced to assume the role of Chief and lead a group of young survivors, including his sister Abital, away from harm. But the hostile, treacherous terrain has other dangers in store for them. As the tattered group makes the difficult trek to Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, they meet other fleeing children, forging a bond with Jeremiah, who, at 13, is already a man of faith, and Paul, whose skills become essential to their survival. Thirteen years later, the now young adults are given the opportunity to leave the camp and resettle in America. Upon arriving in Kansas, they are met by Carrie Davis, an employment agency counselor who has been enlisted to help find them jobs no easy task, when things like light switches and telephones are brand new to them. The Hero of Color CityGenre: Animation Cast: Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, Wayne Brady, Craig Ferguson, Owen Wilson and Jessica Capshaw Director: Frank Gladstone Rated: G Each night, when Ben falls asleep, his Crayons jump into their magical Crayon Box that transports them to their home in Color City, a world of dazzling hues, soaring fantasy and the whimsy of childhood. This land is fed by an enchanted rainbow and waterfall that provides the city and its citizens with color. When Yellow, our timid heroine, is accidentally left behind in Bens room, she inadvertently awakens two Unfinished Drawings: King Scrawl, a huge, powerful, mute monster and Gnat, Scrawls motor-mouthed, overactive sidekick. In search of color for themselves, they follow Yellow to Color City, causing panic and concern. If Scrawl and Gnat can claim the waterfall for themselves, Color City will fade, and along with it, our lovable crayon characters will disappear. Its up to Yellow and a motley crew of Crayons, bodacious and brave, Blue, meticulous, fussy Green, satirical Red, pessimistic Black and overanxious White to save the day. Meeting with fantastical creatures and fun adventures along the way, Yellow discovers she has more courage and strength than she knew and learns to believe in herself and to count on the support of her friends.
