Volume 39, No. 40 December 7, 2017 Florida Local Government WeekPhoto courtesy of MAYOR LESLIE WATERSSixty fourth-graders from Indian Rocks Christian School visited Seminole City Hall to celebrate Florida Local Government Week Oct. 20. They watched a fun PowerPoint presentation entitled My City Your City and participated in a mock City Council meeting at the dais. They also met Seminole Fire Rescue Chief Heather Burford and Pinellas County Sheriffs Of ce Deputy Dan DiFrancesco, observed a re ghter demonstration, and then climbed in a re engine and deputy vehicle. This is the third year Mayor Leslie Waters has organized this City Hall visit from IRCS fourth-graders with teacher Michelle DiFrancesco. County loses two top employeesBP money makes a difference around PinellasScreenshot by SUZETTE PORTEREast Lake Tarpon Special Fire Control District new water rescue boat is one of the many improvements made possible by BP settlement money. By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County accepted a $7.1 million settlement from BP in July 2015 for damages caused by the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. For more than a year, commissioners worked with the public to gure out how best to spend those one-time dollars. Finally, in December 2016, the commission approved a number of projects designed to help in a variety of ways throughout the county. Staff provided an update on three of the projects that had been completed during the Nov. 28 commission meeting. They included $70,000 for the Arts Conservatory for Teens (Community Access Project for At Risk Youth) to buy two vans, $150,000 to the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance for phase II of the Veterans Memorial Plaza at Crest Lake Park in Clearwater and $150,000 to East Lake Tarpon Special Fire Control District for a water rescue boat. These projects hits on three of the priority areas identi ed when commissioners were deciding how best to spend the money recognizing veterans, art and education, and public safety. In a video about the projects, Father Bob Swick, with the Tampa Bay Veterans Alliance, talked about the beauty of the plaza and how its central location was designed to be of value and use throughout the year. Alex Harris, CEO and founder of ACT, said the two 15-passenger vans had been very instrumental literally becoming a vehicle to get students to opportunity to be exposed by attending educational and cultural workshops and events. Chief Thomas Jamison with the East Lake Tarpon Special Fire Control District said the new rescue craft would be used on Lake Tarpon, which he described as the largest fresh water body in the county used for thousands of people each year. He said the purchase of the new water rescue craft t in well with the whole approach of the county right now trying to get an integrated water rescue system in place throughout the county. Other projects that have been completed include $30,000 for landscaping of the Tiki Gardens Beach Access in Indian Shores, $350,000 for ferry pilot project to travel between St. Petersburg and Tampa, $250,000 to the city of Dunedin to purchase land in Hammock Park and $125,000 to the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary in Clearwater to acquire property for training classes. Commissioners also approved an agreement with Creative Pinellas for $500,000 in BP money for a traveling sculptures/ See BP SETTLEMENT, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County Administrator Mark Woodard had some unwelcome news as part of his report at the County Commissions Nov. 28 meeting. Two top employees Utilities Director Randi Kim and Assistant County Administrator John Bennett have submitted their resignations. Woodard said when Kim took the leadership role for Utilities in April 2016, she had planned for it to be her forever job. She has since changed her mind and taken a position as Utilities director at Grand Junction, Colorado. Kim is a licensed professional engineer with a degree in chemical engineering with a specialization in environmental engineering. Kim came to Pinellas from Hillsborough County where she served two years as division director of Technical Services for the Utilities Department. Before that, she worked 24 years for CDM Smith, an engineering and construction rm that provides integrated solutions in water, environment, See EMPLOYEES, page 4A Features Business . . . . . . . . . . .16A Classi eds . . . . . . . . . .4-7B Community . . . . . . . . .4, 18A County . . . . . . . . . . . .6-7A Entertainment . . . . . . . .1-3, 8B Faith & Family . . . . . . . . .11A Health & Fitness . . . . . . . .13A Just for Fun . . . . . . . . . . .2B Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .17A Police Beat . . . . . . . . . . .9A Schools . . . . . . . . . . . .12A Seminole . . . . . . . . . . . .3A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . . .15ACall 397-5563 For News & Advertising At the box of ceJust Getting Started starring Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones and Rene Russo, to open this weekend.

Page 13A. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Plans to build a Seminole Welcome Center at Waterfront Park, 10400 Park Blvd., have fallen through after the city learned that grant restrictions would make it dif cult to utilize the property for anything other than outdoor recreational use. The joint-use project between the city and the chamber was initially conceived in 2014, when the Edward J. and Vivian E. Lurie Charitable Foundation offered a $500,000 donation to the city to build a multi-use public facility as a permanent home for the chamber. Last year, the city and chamber decided Waterfront Park would be the ideal location for the welcome center. City Manager Ann Toney-Deal told the City Council at its June 27 meeting that because the land was purchased using money from a $200,000 Department of Environmental Protection land acquisition grant, the land was restricted to outdoor use only. The city could have requested a land conversion, but it would have been required to swap the restrictions from the parcel at Waterfront Park to another of comparable size owned by the city. It also had the potential to be a lengthy process, Toney-Deal said at the June meeting. At the councils Nov. 28 meeting, ToneyDeal said that members of the chamber and the Luries have determined other parcels of land, which arent owned by the city, that are being considered for the welcome center. A couple of options arose that were not anticipated back when we rst started talking about this, Toney-Deal said. She said they are very viable, very positive sites that are very conducive to the function of the chamber. She was not able to publicly reveal these potential sites at the time of the meeting, she added. To allow the project to move forward at these new sites, the council voted unanimously to return any funds that had been released to the city by the trust, minus the funds used to appraise Waterfront Park, and to nullify any agreement between the city and the Luries. Councilor Roger Edelman, who is also president of the chamber, recused himself from the vote. In other action items, the council also selected Edelman as vice mayor. Edelman, Councilor Trish Springer and past Vice Mayor Chris Burke each nominated themselves for the role. Mayor Leslie Waters said vice mayors are always self-nominated because the individual needs to be able to serve if something happens to the mayor, she said. Edelman received four votes, while Springer received two and Burke received one.Chamber eyes new locations for Welcome Center Get $100 for a newTrendSettersChecking AccountA club packed with bene ts for customers age 50 or better!*To qualify for the $100 bonus, you must be a new First Home Bank checking customer and quali ed to open a checking account in accordance with our normal standards.

4A Community Seminole Beacon, December 7, 2017installation project. Creative Pinellas will be responsible for selecting artists to create a public art project for display in publicly accessible locations throughout the county over a period of at least 12 months. Creative Pinellas will receive $100,000 to pay for management services, $17,000 for the artist solicitation and selection process and $325,000 to support creative, production and placement of the art installations. Another $10,000 will be available for marketing with $48,000 for a contingency fund. Preliminary plans call for the rst display to go up in November 2018 and remain in place for three months. One month is scheduled to tear down and relocate the display to a new location by March 2019 with the schedule continuing through May 2020. The project would be dismantled/recycled/reused or stored in June 2020. Commissioner Dave Eggers commented that the scope of the project had been cut back since Creative Pinellas rst proposed having 10 locations over three years. The new schedule calls for ve locations over 18 months. Barbara St. Clair, Creative Pinellas executive director, said the organization had engaged a lot of people throughout the county about the project and had been told that three years was too long. She said the advice had been to let the artists and jury of people that would approve the projects, make the decision about the program. She said having a de nitive plan that called for three years and 10 places wouldnt necessarily allow enough exibility and creativity. She said the proposed schedule was still tentative and Creative Pinellas would begin reaching out to the artists to get more opinions about locations and a timeframe for the project. She said Creative Pinellas would return to the commission in the future with a full package of its plans. She thanked the commission for the opportunity. Were holding onto the reins and the horse is ready to go out the gate, she said. Suzette Porter is TBNs Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at BP SETTLEMENT, from page 1A EMPLOYEES, from page 1A transportation, energy and facilities for public and private clients. Woodard praised the work Kim has done to improve the countys aging infrastructure and her valuable input on the Wastewater/Stormwater Task Force. The task force formed in October 2016 in response to the millions of gallons of sewage that spilled into waterways around the county due to torrential rainfall that ooded the system from Hurricane Hermine Aug. 31-Sept. 2, 2016. Bennett came to the county in July 2015, a time when relations with many of integral partners, including rst responders and health care providers, were at a boiling point. John Bennett is Mr. with partners we can do more, Woodard, adding that Bennett is the personi cation of that theme. He said Bennett had not only repaired damaged relationships, he had also built newer stronger ones. Bennett served on the Tampa police force for 30 years, retiring as assistant chief of police in February of 2015. Woodard said he has chosen to return to this true calling of law enforcement. Bennett has a bachelors degree in criminology and a masters in homeland security and defense. He also is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. Hes out to make the world a safer place for all, Woodard said. Before Woodards announcement, Thomas Jamison, chief of the East Lake Tarpon Special Fire Control District, pre-empted the county administrator when he thanked Bennett for all he had done earlier in the meeting. It was a pleasure to work with you, he said. Were sad to see you go. Commissioner Ken Welch joked at the time, saying were working on an ordinance to keep Bennett here. Commissioners had nothing but praise for Kim and Bennett and wished them well. One of the goals you have when you join an organization is to leave it better than when you arrived, said Commissioner Charlie Justice, adding that both Kim and Bennett had done that.Windsor School purchaseWoodard also updated the commission on the latest information regarding the purchase of the former Windsor School in the Lealman Community Redevelopment Area. He said staff had negotiated a price of $11 million. The seller had asked for $13 million. Woodard said two appraisals had been done with one valuing the property at $9.5 million and the other at $10 million. He said although the negotiated price was higher than the highest appraisal, he felt comfortable with the price. The next step is to complete the due diligence on the site, which needs to be completed by Dec. 12, and barring any adverse ndings or objections from the commission, he would likely go ahead and execute the contract. The purchase will be funded in part by state grants. One for $2 million was awarded by the legislature last year and there is a request for a second $2 million grant before state lawmakers this year. The remainder of the money will come from Penny for Pinellas. Justice called the purchase a game changer for the residents of Lealman. I want this property very badly, he said. These folks dont have anything like this close to them. Suzette Porter is TBNs Pinellas County editor.

She will be joined by a panel of experts representing groups most often targeted by hate groups: Jews, Muslims, blacks and LGBTs. Serving a six-year term for her part in a hate crime in 1998, King found kindness and respect in prison from some of the very people she had hated on the outside. That transformative experience led her to co-found Life After Hate, a non-profit organization dedicated to compassion and forgiveness that helps hate group members disengage from that lifestyle. Hate groups are on the rise as is the violence their members generate. Since the violent marches last August in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one woman dead and dozens injured, Americans are regularly confronted by white nationalists, neo-Nazis and patriot militias spewing messages of hate at political rallies, street marches, over the air waves and, most predominantly, on the internet. Since the presidential campaign of 2015-2016 and the populist movement sparked by President Trump, the hate industry has undergone a resurgence. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported 917 hate groups in 2016, a figure which includes a 197 percent increase in anti-Muslim groups, from 34 in 2015 to 101 currently. There were only ve such groups in 2010. That surge was accompanied by a spike in hate crimes, with almost 1,400 reported in the first three months of Trumps presidency and 6,121 reported in 2016, a 4.6 percent increase from 2015. The Anti-Defamation League reported an 86 percent spike in anti-Semitic incidents in the first quarter of 2017. What prompts people to join violent hate groups? How do their actions affect the American political scene? How does the Trump administrations nationalistic bent broaden their appeal to mainstream America? And how do these groups impact the lives of the minority groups they despise? King and the panel will discuss their real-world experiences as they explore these questions in depth at the forum. Joining her in that discussion will be: Gina Duncan, director of Transgender Equality, Equality Florida; Hassan Shibly, chief executive of cer, Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida; and Jack Packer, professor of history, St. Petersburg College. The moderator will be Maura Sweeney, principal, Living Happy Inside Out.

6A County Seminole Beacon, December 7, 2017 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners began their Nov. 28 meeting with a moment of silence in remembrance of an employee who died on the job the day before. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies responded to McKay Creek in Taylor Park just north of 134th Avenue North between Adams Circle and 121st Street in unincorporated Largo about 11: 56 a.m. Nov. 27 after receiving a report of a deceased person. Largo Fire Rescue pronounced 63-year-old Rafael Lorenzo Ufret Ortiz of St. Petersburg dead about 12:14 p.m. Ortiz was a Senior Spray Technician, who had been employed by Pinellas County Mosquito Control since July 2002. Detectives with the sheriffs Robbery/Homicide Unit say Ortiz was conducting tests of the water along McKay Creek for Mosquito Control. He was last seen heading to his assigned area about 7:30 a.m. About 11:44 a.m., a park ranger was noti ed that a county truck appeared to be stuck on the easement and the front driver door was open. The park ranger and another employee drove to the area and found Ortiz face down in the creek. Detectives say the cause of death is unknown but does not appear suspicious in nature. Rafael was an exemplary person and an outstanding employee. The Pinellas County family is mourning today, said Public Works Director Rajim Harji in a press release Nov. 27. Rafael was a good man, good father and good husband, County Administrator Mark Woodard said during the Nov. 28 meeting. He said his fellow employees commented that Ortiz was quick with a smile and proud of what he did as a county employee. Woodard said the county was mourning the loss and expressed his condolences to the family. He said everyone at the county was doing what he or she could to support the family. Ortiz was born July 7, 1954, in San German, Puerto Rico. He was the son of the late Francisco Ufret Seda and Cleofe Rodriguez Ortiz. Pastor Dawn Haeger of Peace Memorial Presbyterian Church in Clearwater took a moment to express her condolences and talk about Ortiz before delivering the invocation at the Nov. 28 meeting. She said his friends had told her that he was an exemplary employee and more importantly an exemplary human being. She said he had considered retiring, but loved his job so much he did not do so. He enjoyed time at home with his family where he loved to cook, listen to music and sharing stories with friends. He is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart, Mirian Rios Henriquez and their son, Rafael L. Ufret Rios, as well as many brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.

Blue Christmas is a service for those who are having a dif cult time during the holiday season. It is often the emotions of some kind of loss that is hard to reconcile with the joy and carols and trees and lights all around, said the Rev. Daphne Johnson, FUMC pastor. It may be the loss of a spouse or child or friend. It could be the loss of a job, a nancial loss or a medical issue. These dif cult times are hard enough to handle, yet the irony is the holiday celebrations can magnify the feeling that the Christmas season and message is not for them.

Clearwater is looking to send four local high school students on an educational trip to Japan. Four students will be selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship that will go toward spending one week during the summer of 2018 in Clearwaters Sister City of Nagano, Japan, as part of the Sister Cities International Exchange Program. The program is a partnership between the city of Clearwater and the Pinellas County School Board. This opportunity will give four high school students a chance to immerse themselves in Japans culture, giving them a hands-on learning opportunity they cant get from just reading books. During their stay, the students will reside with homestay families and visit junior and senior high schools. As part of their visit, the students will make numerous presentations at each school, and actively participate in educational exchanges between Clearwater and Nagano students. Those eligible must be a Clearwater resident, enrolled in high school, have a minimum GPA of 3.5 or higher, and be enrolled in a world language class, international business, or comparative cultures or have completed a sequence of similar study. Those interested must apply by Jan. 12. The requirements and an application can be found at Click on the Arts & Culture tab. Quali ed students also can call Michael Lavery at 727-562-4819 or email, offers telecommunications trainingSt. Petersburg College, in partnership with Pinellas County Safety and Emergency Services and several local public safety agencies, will be offering a Public Safety Telecommunicator Certi cation Program starting Jan. 22, 2018. This certification will provide training to Pinellas County Emergency Management agencies to ll the employment gap for Public Safety telecommunicators countywide. With this partnership, SPC will provide 232 hours of training and pay for the state-mandated testing after completion. Telecommunicators in 911 call centers serve a mission critical role in Life Safety communication, said Pinellas County Safety and Emergency Services Bureau Director James Fogarty. As a rst point of contact for the public, and the ongoing communication conduit for all police, re and EMS responders, telecommunicators training and education cannot be underestimated. This new program provides a sound educational background and promotes the rigorous standards expected of any public safety industry. The PST curriculum is a hybrid learning environment with 80 hours of interaction with current dispatchers, 52 hours of face-to-face training and 100 hours online. After completing the certi cation, students could potentially receive 12 college credits. This educational program for telecommunicators is long overdue. Years from now the industry will not understand how we could have done without it, said Fogarty.

Health & Fitness 13A Seminole Beacon, December 7, 2017 Health updatesThree BayCare hospitals to participate in Operation Walk USAAs part of a nationwide effort to help patients in need receive potentially life-changing joint replacement surgery, three BayCare hospitals are providing total joint replacements to ve uninsured patients who are living with debilitating joint pain. These patients will be given an early holiday present at no cost to them as three BayCare hospitals Mease Dunedin, Morton Plant and St. Anthonys are participating in Operation Walk USA. At Mease Dunedin Hospital, orthopedic surgeon David Whiddon, M.D., will perform a total knee replacement surgery. Orthopedic surgeon Andrew Cooper, M.D., will perform a total hip replacement surgery at Morton Plant Hospital. Michael Wanger, M.D., is assisting with preand post-operative evaluations and care for both patients. St. Anthonys Hospital is helping three patients. Orthopedic surgeon Kurt Hirshorn will perform all three surgeries, and Ali Saberi, M.D., has seen the patients to clear them for surgery and will see them after the surgery. Due to extenuating circumstances, one of the St. Anthonys patients has already received surgery. The surgeries are scheduled for the week of Dec. 4. The doctors, anesthesiologists and radiologists involved are donating their time and expertise, while the hospitals are covering the cost of these surgeries, as well as medicine for 30 days and post-op physical therapy and home health. Erin Kilgore, orthopedic physician assistant at Morton Plant Hospital, brought Operation Walk USA to Morton Plant Hospital last year. She spent hours nding quali ed patients, navigating the patients through the process, lining up doctors to give up their time and expertise, and coordinating hospital and home care. At the end of the process, four individuals had received total joint replacements. In Florida, four hospitals are participating in Operation Walk USA and three of those are part of BayCare. Operation Walk USA is an independent medical humanitarian organization that provides free hip or knee replacement surgeries to uninsured patients in the United States who do not qualify for government assistance and are at or below 300 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. From Dec. 4-9, an estimated 60 patients are scheduled to receive free joint replacements from 40 volunteer orthopaedic surgeons at 36 hospitals across the United States.

The healthcare system is one of 115 VA facilities nationwide out of 144 to receive recognition, and one of 111 that received the gold award. The award recognizes facilities for transparent incident reporting processes and for using root cause analyses to improve health care delivery systems and patient safety. Our professionals consistently work to deliver safe, effective, and high-quality care to veterans who choose Bay Pines as their trusted health care provider. The cornerstone achievement is the result of our culture of safety, transparency and open communication, said Suzanne M. Klinker, director, Bay Pines VAHCS. We are very proud to be recognized as a gold winner for the eighth straight year by the National Center for Patient Safetys Cornerstone program, she said. The NCPS was established by VA in 1999 to develop and nurture a culture of safety throughout the Veterans Health Administration. The Cornerstone Recognition Award program was later established by the national center in 2008 to enhance the RCA process and recognize the work done in patient safety across the VA health care facilities across the country. RCA is the process VA health care facilities use to improve the delivery of care by identifying prevention strategies to mitigate health care-related adverse events or close calls.

Registration will open at 7:30 p.m. The ride will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the 5K run/walk will get underway at 10 a.m. Presented by the Clearwater Threshers and the ALS Association Florida Chapter, this one-day endurance event for cyclists and runners raise funds to nd a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease. ALS progressively paralyzes its victims, attacking nerve cells and pathways in the brain or spinal cord, taking away their ability to walk, talk, eat and eventually breathe. ALS has no known cause or cure, but the ALS community is rallying together to change that. Participating again this year is Mike Leist along with his wife Lis and his family and friends on Team Blade Runners. Mike, an athlete, dragon boat racer, and a former history teacher at Steinbrenner High School, was diagnosed with ALS in early 2016. Determined to make a difference, Mike has made the choice to challenge ALS each and every day. ALS is a horrible, terminal disease that is not well understood, has no cure, and whose research is not well funded. It is a very dark journey to be on for those af icted with it, and those close to them, said Mike. I am on that journey now, and ride with other good people to help raise awareness and funds to nd a cure. I ride because right now I can. His Ride team to date has raised almost $20,000 to ght ALS. Following the event, participants will be treated to a lunch and celebration at the Holiday Inn Harbourside Hotel in Indian Rocks Beach.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, December 7, 2017Ban dog racingEditor: A racing greyhound dies every three days at a Florida dog track. The unfortunate truth is that thousands of dogs are injured and die or are killed in the training process and are forced to endure intensive con nement when off the track. Fortunately, state Sen. Tom Lee has led a measure to end greyhound racing in our state. The proposed amendment to the Florida constitution would phase out commercial dog racing over three years, and eventually end the state mandate for greyhound racing. If the Amendment is approved by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission, it will appear on the 2018 ballot for our vote. A 60 percent yes vote would be needed to approve the amendment. Greyhound racing is a dying industry, and 40 states already ban live greyhound racing. People no longer see the entertainment value in subjecting dogs to run for their lives and this amendment should be approved. Jaimee Parry Tarpon SpringsYou payEditor: The businesses that would reap the bounty of the impact the proposed dredging of the Anclote River would have on the estimated $252 million in revenue from marineand tourism related commerce in Tarpon Springs should probably be footing the $676,046 that is being requested for the dredging project. If each of the 150 marine and tourism businesses kicked in, the amount each would pay would be $4,506. If it isnt worth $4,500 to each business to reap $252 million in economic benefit, then why should taxpayers pay for it? Our country, state and county are all buried in debt that will take multiple generations to pay off, even if we stopped overspending today. Yet there still seems to be an expectation that taxpayers should whip out the credit card to pay a $676,000 bill for a bunch of businesses that appear to be pro ting handsomely. This mindset needs to change. Stop begging taxpayers to subsidize the Anclote River dredge project. Let the businesses bene tting from the project gure out how to split the bill amongst themselves. Steven Murray Palm HarborGetting old isnt what it used to beEditor: Years ago, it used to be said that you were getting old when the policemen looked young and especially when they referred to you as Sir or Maam. Being one of many who are at the start of the Baby Boomer era, we are refusing to accept our age, with phrases like is the new 30, or even is the new 40. No cardigans or slippers warming by the re for us. I particularly like the phrase growing old disgracefully to describe how we act. I remember at my reunions with my school friends, in our 30s we de ned getting old as when we walked straight past a music store and into a do-it-yourself or hardware store. Now its walking past the hardware store and into a pharmacy! If I may digress for a moment onto a personal story I went on one of my very infrequent trips to my doctors, to get some sleeping tablets for the plane for one of my long-haul trips from Australia to the U.S. After checking my blood pressure, the physician said, I havent seen you for a while and I see in that time you have passed 55, so I had better check your prostate, and my eyes widened when he started purposely pulling on a rubber glove! When I got home I said to my wife, Youll never guess what happened to me just in order to get some sleeping tablets! Digression over, so what are our de nitions of aging? I have collected some I really like, but I encourage you to share yours (if you can remember them!) with your family and friends. I think that you are getting old when: Your back goes out more often that you do You have to lean against the wall to put on your underwear Your teeth and you no longer sleep together You have a party and the people next door dont even notice You know the layout of all the medicines at your local pharmacy (for the ladies) You look at shoes and think Theyll be comfy You ask your kids to program your smart TV or DVD player You look for buy-one-get-one-free spectacles, because you know that you will certainly lose one pair You start liking karaoke The older you get, the earlier it gets late Your garden shed is just not big enough You start looking for matching pairs of gardening gloves and kneeling pads You know the Latin names of all the plants in your garden The only heavy breathing you hear nowadays is when you climb the stairs and nally you realize that in a hostage situation, you would be the rst one released! Andy Rooney encapsulated what every aging Baby Boomer believes and that is that life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer it gets to the end the faster it goes. However, I think that the last word should go to Woody Allen, who said, its not that I am afraid to die, I just dont want to be there when it happens. Continue to have fun growing old disgracefully! Nigel Thomas Largo, Florida, and Perth, AustraliaMadeira Beach recall thisEditor: Disrespect for one another, disruption at meetings, harassment of elected of cials, impugning of residents, unsolicited photographing of residents all this seems to be the norm for the Madeira Beach political scene. This behavior is what we should be recalling. A valid election in March produced the peoples choice for better stewards of city assets, for more integrity of character and for transparency. These candidates turned out to be a retired corporate manager, a former city commissioner and a retired military veteran. There is no nancial or personal agenda for these very respected, experienced, retired citizens. Their goal, their civic duty take the city back, reign in spending, stop the pet projects and remove the favoritism displayed by the ousted group that the voters rejected. However, the political split is deep. A group of antagonists have formed a recall committee citing several reasons. One recall supporter states as a reason, theyre not for the tall building developments. Truthfully, anti-development is not a viable argument. We should recall that the former city manager and mayor worked in concert with the developers, cozy and close, to give us these developments, erring in the process all along. Recall the turmoil this created. In contrast, this commission is working to solve the problems the development projects have created. The new commissioners have been in mediation with the developers and it is proving fruitful. There are serious discrepancies in the citys agreement with the developers, and they are being reviewed. These projects can move forward, but with corrections and changes. This commission has done everything according to the city charter. They have upheld their oaths of of ce. Recall that they have been guided by the city attorney, whose rm has been in place in our city for several years, interpreting the charter and rules for the city. As residents, we should recall that Madeira Beach suffers from chronic political unrest. Why have we not been able to alter the decades of political division that has eroded our peace? It is embarrassing. If it is possible to lower the temperature of the hot heads and drain the ood of insanity, maybe we can recall that we are all neighbors and citizens of this beach town, our home. Gerri Gallo Madeira BeachMillions were stunned Wednesday morning when the Today show led with the news that NBC fired host Matt Lauer after receiving a detailed complaint about what it called inappropriate sexual behavior from its high-pro le morning anchor. Twitter exploded, the Internet erupted, and President Donald Trump couldnt resist taking a jab at NBC, saying top executives also should be red for putting out so much fake news. This comes while the president apparently now is saying the infamous Access Hollywood tape might be a fake. Thats where he bragged about the advantage he believed his power gave him over women and he apologized for the behavior last year when the story broke during the campaign. The New York Times reported the president now is suggesting that the tape was all some Clintonian plot and that it might not have been his voice that we heard. He said his staff is investigating. I guess it means he made a fake apology last year, unless Hillary somehow created a devious hologram that made it sound like he was admitting to saying bad, bad things. Really bad. But seriously folks, keeping it in the here and now, he has also urged Alabama voters to choose accused pedophile Roy Moore in the upcoming U.S. Senate race because Republicans need his vote to get their political agenda passed. Way to take a stand, sir. So, who is doing the right thing here NBC, or the president? While no one is saying that a morning news anchor packs the same clout as the president, he loss to NBC is immense. Forbes reported that the Today show generated an estimated $435 million for NBC in 2015 and accounts for about half of the networks annual news budget. Lauer was paid handsomely for his role in this, an estimated $25 million per year. He sat in the anchors chair for 20 years and often was the rst face TV viewers saw in the morning. People liked and trusted him. A recent report on said Lauer was planning to leave when his contract expired in 2018, but, if true, that would have been an exit complete with hype, celebration and blockbuster ratings. Instead, it is in disgrace. NBC has pledged transparency on this story, so I assume we will learn more details soon enough about what Lauer did. It had to be reprehensible and veri able to get him red, but it had to be worse for the person he harassed. It took guts for her to come forward. By now, there should be no need for another lecture about the disgusting ways powerful men use their status to intimidate women. Heaven knows weve had enough examples lately. This story, though, is more about how a major corporation or the American people decide how they will handle these stories going forward. NBC likely will take a major nancial hit with Lauers departure. Viewers will feel betrayed. There will be much work to do to regain the kind of trust the audience gave to Lauer. The rst step toward that already has been taken, though. NBC didnt equivocate once executives believed they had all the facts. They acted swiftly and will take whatever is coming their way from the public. Thats how it should be. The Today show will continue to come on the air, promptly at 7 a.m. Reporters will continue to cover the major stories from Matt Lauer, to Roy Moore, o President Trump. This is what real news outlets do, even when the dirty laundry is their own. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. A hundred years ago, one of historys most important events occurred: the Russian Revolution. Youd think someone on your block or at city hall would hold a celebration lled with vodka-fueled toasts and singing. But I havent heard of one. Lets explore some of the reasons why. Possibly its because Russia and its government are not very popular these days. Rumors abound that Russians tried to in uence the results of our 2016 presidential election. They allegedly favored the Republican candidate and spread ugly gossip about his opponent. This has led to accusations of GOP-Russian collusion. This is a legal term, sometimes mistaken as a form of collision or contusion. But how can you have a decent Russian party without Russians? And how long has it been since you met a Russian, or someone who spoke uent Russian? Years ago, I visited the Congressional Library with a woman (Ill call her Alicia) who had studied Russian and spoke it well. We were standing in line, and she overheard Russian being spoken by the couple just in front of us. Alicia a friendly soul said to them Do you come here often? in Russian. Her unexpected question almost scared the bryuki (Russian for pants or underwear) off them. I guess they thought the Soviet secret police agency, the NKVD, might be after them. Another reason Americans arent remembering the Russian Revolution is that it was so complicated unlike the American Revolution, which had a much simpler beginning. In the 1770s the English king was a nut case who unfairly taxed American colonists. So, we tossed his tea into Boston Harbor and then assaulted the kings soldiers, who wore bright red coats just begging to be shot at. From that point, things were fairly predictable: Brave Yankees vs. British swine. But the Russian Revolution was too complex for most of us simple-minded clods to understand. In fact, at your next cocktail party, if some Russian history expert corners you, fake an attack of shingles and make your escape. Better yet, ask the expert to explain in 50 words or less the precise differences between a Menshevik and a Bolshevik. That should shut him up. A brief and over-simpli ed version of the Russian Revolution might go this way: For centuries the or dinary people (serfs) had been governed by aristocrats and plutocrats who believed that God had appointed them to of ce. Finally, the serfs got fed up and shouted, This is a load of osadok! (You can look up meanings of that word on Google). An initial rebellion took place in February 1917, and a second one in November. By 1922 the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, consisting of Russia and 14 other states, was formed. Years of political rivalries followed. Joseph Stalin came out on top. He secured his victory by starving millions of his fellow Soviet citizens. The ones who survived were used to defeat Nazi invaders. By 1945 the Soviets controlled most of eastern Europe. But in 1991 the Soviet dream collapsed, for ve or six reasons I will spare you from reading. Today, as you know, Russias president is Vladimir Putin, a former Soviet spy who has retained his professional skills during his climb to the top. He is intelligent and crafty enough to have achieved disturbing friendships with at least one or two other world leaders you may have heard about. Putins control of Russia is great but not absolute. A recent column by Marvin Kalb in Time magazine said that Putins one great fear is the Russian people. And the possibility that one day they may overthrow him. Such events have occurred many times in many lands. No nation, including our own, is exempt from the uprisings of nally-out-of-patience citizens. A saying increasingly heard today is Better to live in hope than to die in despair. Or words to that effect. A nal thought: In the old days, when you ran out of insults for an enemy, you could always call him A no-good Commie rat. No more. Most of the Communists have faded away. A worthy successor insult has not appeared. Unless its mudak. Thats another Russian word you may want to Google.

Its probably safe to say that we wont see a weekend like the last one for a while. The long-range forecast shows a couple of cold fronts on their way, so it looks like we will be feeling the arctic air by this weekend. What does it mean for the fishing? Not good unfortunately. Options will be limited and if the wind is really blowing it could be a total shutdown. Looking back at last week, we had no wind but sunny skies and strong tides. All things that help to make excellent fishing. Offshore anglers have been catching everything from kingfish to red grouper. While inshore the trout bite has certainly turned on and will remain a good option for the next couple of months. Bottom fishing can be tricky on the full moon. However, most people Ive talked to had good reports for red grouper, mangrove and lane snapper and hogfish. If youre after red grouper, depths of 100 to 110 feet have been producing very well. Frozen sardines and whole squid will work fine for the grouper, but having a few dozen pinfish and or grass grunts will tempt the larger fish into biting. Hogfish are on most peoples radar by now as December is traditionally a great time to fish for them. Depths of 40 to 55 feet have been full of hogfish. Knocker rig fishing with a 2-ounce egg sinker and a fresh shrimp is all you need for them. Look for hard bottom spots with a good variety of fish, not just grunts, and you should be able to catch a few. Spotted sea trout thrive in cooler water. The spoil islands north of Dunedin Causeway are no secret in the fishing community. All the islands hold schools of trout this time of year. Anglers can choose to bounce soft-plastic jigs or free-line select shrimp or sardines for the large trout.

The following lm will open in wide release this weekend:Just Getting StartedGenre: Comedy and action Cast: Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, Rene Russo, Joe Pantoliano, Glenne Headly, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Elizabeth Ashley, George Wallace, Graham Beckel, Mel Raido and Nick Peine Director: Ron Shelton Rated: PG-13 From Ron Shelton, writer/director of Tin Cup and Bull Durham comes the new comedy Just Getting Started. Morgan Freeman stars as Duke Diver, the freewheeling manager of the Villa Capri, a luxury Palm Springs resort. Diver may have a mysterious past, but hes a pro at making sure that life for the high-spirited residents is one big, nonstop party. But the status quo is challenged when ex-military charmer Leo (Tommy Lee Jones) checks in, triggering a competition between Duke and Leo for the top spot of Alpha male, as well as for the affections of the newly-arrived Suzie (Rene Russo). When Dukes past suddenly catches up with him, the rivals put aside their differences and the two men reluctantly team up to stop whoever is trying to kill Duke, and also save the Villa Capri. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters.I, TonyaGenre: Comedy and biography Cast: Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney, Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson, Bobby Cannavale and McKenna Grace Director: Craig Gillespie Rated: R Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a darkly comedic tale of American gure skater Tonya Harding and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the rst American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever de ned by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the ery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespies I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Hardings life and career in all of its unchecked and checkered glory.

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance believes the citys murals should be accessible to all. The organization chose 40 centrally located works to focus on, spotlighting the Shine St. Petersburg Mural Festival, several special murals, plus two murals commissioned by AARP Tampa Bay. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is putting our community on the map through Shine, highlighting our city as a world-class arts destination and hub of creativity, said Congressman Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, in a press release.

The audio portion of our tour provides vivid descriptions of each mural, the artist and its setting. The online guide includes transcriptions of the audio recordings, photos and a map, with notes on accessible parking and mobility barriers. This project is likely to serve as a model for other mural programs around the country, said Jennifer Sabo, executive director, VSA Florida. To our knowledge, no other organization in the United States offers mural tours designed for the needs of those with visual, hearing or physical disabilities. VSA Florida has been honored to assist the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance as they develop this much-needed resource and fully supports the Arts Alliances leadership in providing access to public art in St. Petersburg with this innovative and creative program.

Seminole Beacon, December 7, 2017Entertainment 3B A&E NEWS, from page 2B Young Americans InitiativeBeginning in January 2018, American Stage is making live theater free to young people under the age of 20ST. PETERSBURG As American Stage celebrates its 40th anniversary season, the St. Petersburg professional theater company will launch a new initiative focused on the long-term future of the organization by developing the next generation of theater professionals, theater audiences and advocates. As part of the initiation, beginning January 1, 2018, American Stage is making live theater free to young people under the age of 20. As I thought about the American Stages role as an arts leader, I began to think more seriously about our responsibility to this art form and to the community we serve, said Stephanie Gularte in a press release. Gularte is producing artistic director at American Stage. With a quickly evolving cultural landscape, there are some questions that need to be addressed with some urgency: Who will shape the future of the American theater? Who will perform on, design and direct for our stages? Who will market, advance and lead our theaters? And who will ll the seats, champion our programs and engage with our work? These questions led Gularte, along with her leadership team at American Stage, to create an unprecedented initiative committed to developing the future artists, audiences and advocates of professional live theatre in Tampa Bay. The Young Americans Initiative is comprised of three major pillars of forward-looking opportunities, including one pillar which is being considered a bold experiment for the year 2018. The three pillars of the Young American initiative include the following: Pillar 1 The American Stage apprenticeship program. This program is dedicated to building the skills and careers of future theatre artists and arts leaders. This year-long residency provides young people who have recently completed their undergraduate degrees, to be fully immersed in American Stages operations and programming, receiving hands on experience and impactful mentoring by industry professionals to prepare them for careers in the theater. Pillar 2 The Under 30 Pass. This pass offers unlimited theater to young people under the age of 30 for only $15 per month. Pass holders may attend American Stage mainstage productions, improv, cabaret and American Stage in the Park as often as they like. Pillar 3 The Under 20 Free Passport. This is a bold experiment in 2018 that allows young people under the age of 20 to have access to American Stages full mainstage season at no cost. With our Young Americans initiative, teens and young adults will have unprecedented access to our work and will have the opportunity to make theater a regular part of their lives, said Gularte. The initiative is exciting, its bold, and its absolutely imperative: Live theatre must engage todays youth to survive and thrive. The third pillar, making professional live theater free to young people under the age of 20, is a particularly ambitious effort aimed at eliminating cost as a barrier to this art form. It is also a potentially risky move for the theater. With full priced tickets covering only 55 to 60 percent of the costs of producing, giving away thousands of dollars of ticket inventory is sure to have a nancial impact. The theater is counting on the generosity of the community and arts supporters to help fund this initiative and to keep it going throughout 2018 and beyond. Scott Wagman and Beth Houghton, two St. Petersburg residents actively involved in the philanthropic community, recently offered a $25,000 matching gift, speci cally to support the Young Americans initiative. Beth and I love American Stage and were inspired by the Young Americans initiative to increase accessibility by radically cutting costs for students and young Photo by KARA GOLDBERGAmerican Stage is currently presenting an adaptation of William Shakespeares Much Ado About Nothing, running through Dec. 10. Tampa Bay areas longest-running professional theater company recently announced its Young Americans Initiative, which includes the Under 20 Free Passport. Visit for details.people, said Wagman. We are happy to support this outstanding initiative and are grati ed that American Stage trustees and supporters were able to meet our match of $25,000. The company is preparing for an aggressive outreach plan with the community to let young people know of this opportunity and to nd additional supporters who will help sponsor the effort. We believe in this effort and are committed to making it work for the community and for American Stage, Gularte said.

Tickets start at $54.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit Crosby, the two-time Rock N Roll Hall of Famer, is a co-founder of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash. He is currently on the road touring in support of Sky Trails, his third solo album in the last four years. The Clearwater performance is the nal stop on this tour that boasted 25 dates and got underway in Chicago on Oct. 30. The band backing Crosby will feature his son James Raymond on keys, Mai Agan on bass, Steve DiStanislao on drums, Jeff Pevar on guitar and Michelle Willis on keys and vocals. Sky Trails continues Crosbys unexpected late-period resurgence. In his eighth decade, Crosby is not only surviving, but thriving personally and creatively. The album takes Crosby in a new musical direction as the set tilts toward a full band sound and deep, soulful grooves. Its a natural thing for me, says Crosby on his website. Crosby embraced the challenge of the shifting song structures. Ive always felt more comfortable there. Theres complexity, intricacy and subtleties in the music. I like that stuff. Sky Trails follows last years critically acclaimed Lighthouse which received praise from outlets including Rolling Stone, Stereogum and NPR Music. Before that, Crosby released Croz in 2014. Croz was Crosbys rst solo album in 20 years. Though Crosby wrote many of the songs for Sky Trails as he was working on Lighthouse, the two are distinctly different projects. Lighthouse was conspicuously and deliberately acoustic, Crosby says. Sky Trails was intended to be a full band record from the start. Crosby found himself reinvigorated by the stellar musicians with which hes surrounded himself. All the people in the Sky Trails band are much younger than me, so I have to paddle faster to keep up, he says. In Crosbys unparalleled six-decade career, the native Californian has created songs that resonate as indelible cultural touchstones for more than three generations, not only as a solo artist, but as a founding member of The Byrds in the mid-1960s, Crosby, Stills & Nash (recipients of the Grammy for best new artist in 1969), and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Hes collaborated with dozens of artists, including Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Pink Floyds David Gilmour, Phil Collins, Elton John and Carole King. The folk-rock pioneer, who was inducted into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009, has also served as our social conscience, not only eloquently writing about societal issues on such songs as Almost Cut My Hair and Wooden Ships, but continuously donating concert proceeds to likeminded causes. His towering in uence and brilliant ability to capture the spirit of our times in his music remains undiminished.

8B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, December 7, 2017Rickie Lee Jones to play Murray TheatreCLEARWATER Rickie Lee Jones will perform Friday, Dec. 8, 8:30 p.m., in Murray Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $65. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall. com. Jones, a two-time Grammy winner, exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. A cultural phenomenon, Rolling Stone magazine put her on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance. Jones is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing, defying convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and the mixed bag of jazz, rock and what has come to be known as confessional songwriter performances. The Other Side of Desire, her latest album, was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennessee Williams. Produced by John Porter of Roxy Music and Mark Howard, this is the rst new music Jones has written in over a decade. This work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with, said Jones in a press release promoting the concert. I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known in on the west coast. Here is another record then, made of my imagination and whatever else that has no words, using the clay of this place and the shapes of my eyes to form some kind of picture of my life, or my heart, that I alone can understand and hopefully that others can enjoy. Rickie Lee Jones, her debut album, was released in 1979. Jones followed up with Pirates in 1981 and the EP Girl at Her Volcano in 1983. Other studio albums include The Magazine (1984), Flying Cowboys (1989), Pop Pop (1991), Traf c from Paradise (1993), Naked Songs: Live and Acoustic (1995), Ghostyhead (1997), Its Like This (2000), The Evening of My Best Day (2003), The Sermon on Exposition Boulevard (2007), Balm in Gilead (2009), The Devil You Know (2012) and The Other Side of Desire (2015). Photo courtesy of RUTH ECKERD HALLRickie Lee Jones takes the stage Dec. 8 in Murray Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Murray Theatre to present Celebrating SinatraCLEARWATER Audiences will hear classic stories, see videos and enjoy a question-and-answer session at Celebrating Sinatra, featuring Sinatras manager and author Eliot Weisman, on Sunday, Dec. 10, 7 p.m., in Murray Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Each ticket includes one rst edition hardcover signed copy of Weismans book The Way It Was: My Life with Frank Sinatra. Tickets also include a pre-show reception with a complimentary glass of wine and an assortment of cheeses. Call 727-791-7400 or visit Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times lm critic, will moderate the presentation. This candid and exciting glimpse into Sinatras life will feature compelling anecdotes, rare video clips and behind the scenes recollections discussed by the man who accompanied Sinatra by his side for over two decades. Weisman was more than Sinatras long-time manager. He was an advisor, con dant and at times a psychiatrist and protector of some of the most notable names in entertainment. Relying on him for management and tour bookings were the careers of Liza Minnelli, Sammy Davis Jr., Don Rickles, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorm, Joan Rivers, Paul Anka, Julio Iglesias and many others. But his Boss from 1975 through 1998 the man with whom he shared his most transformative memories and whose friends and family he would come to know intimately was legendary singer Frank Sinatra.
