Nearly 83 percent of the county's registered voters said yes Nov. 7 to the referendum question to extend the 1-percent infrastructure sales tax, better known as Penny for Pinellas. A lot had been riding on the election. The renewal extends the Penny for 10 years, from 2020-2030, and is expected to bring in $2 billion to fund long-term capital improvement projects in the county as its 24 municipalities. After the vote, Commissioner Ken Welch expressed his thanks. "Tonight, Pinellas voters affirmed the value of the Penny for Pinellas and made a strong commitment to a safe and sustainable community for years to come," he said. Voters first approved the Penny for Pinellas in 1989 and have subsequently renewed it three times to continue funding for countywide projects. Penny money pays for about 70 percent of the cost of the county's governmental capital projects. Some of the countywide projects planned for the years 2020-2030 include: North County, which includes Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Safety Harbor and Oldsmar. East Lake Library expansion. Dunedin Causeway Bridge. Beckett Bridge replacement projects. Flood control projects in Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs and other areas. Road enhancements, including East Lake Road, Forest Lakes Boulevard, Anclote Road and others. Wall Springs Park expansion. Mid County, which includes Clearwater, Largo, Seminole, Belleair and Belleair Bluffs. Belcher Road/Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard intersection project. Road enhancement projects, including Starkey Road, 102nd Avenue and 126th Avenue. Seminole youth sports facilities Stormwater/drainage enhancements across the community. County park facility infrastructure Animal Services facility upgrades. South County, which includes St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park, Gulfport, South Pasadena and Kenneth City. Lealman recreation center. Lealman ood prevention projects. Joe's Creek water quality projects. San Martin Boulevard Bridge replacement. Roadway enhancements to 22nd Avenue South, 62nd Avenue North and other roads. Regional stormwater systems to prevent oodwater from entering the sewer system. Gulf Beaches Gulf Boulevard enhancement projects. Fort De Soto Visitor Center. Tierra Verde community center. Drainage/stormwater projects. Public safety equipment. In addition, the Penny will help fund construction of new trails to and between the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail, Duke Energy Trail, Tri-County Trail and Coastto-Coast Trail, including gaps in a planned 70-mile loop around the county. County leaders also touted investments of Penny money into hurricane preparedness after Hurricane Irma passed by as a Category 2 on Sept. 1011. Widespread damage was reported throughout the county and tons of debris was left behind. See PINELLAS, page 4A The BeachesBy BOB McCLURE Tampa Bay NewspapersAs in past years, the beaches produced no shortage of news stories in 2017. Following are some of the headlines that made news during the year from Tierra Verde to Indian Shores. The beaches dodged a serious bullet when Hurricane Irma passed east of Pinellas County Sept. 11 with winds in excess of 95 mph. Minor damage was reported along the beaches but the major problem was the cleanup of debris that took upward of two months. A revised plan that significantly reduces the size of buildings in a major development proposed for the Madeira Beach gateway was approved by the city commission Jan. 10. The revised plan significantly reduces the size of four of the five buildings in the project. Two hotels and two condominium buildings will be downsized, while a low-rise marina building will have added space. The two hotels will be reduced in size from 11 stories to eight. One of the hotels will have a 20 percent reduction in rooms, from 180 to 148, with 10 condo units added to the top. The other large hotel is being reduced from 250 rooms to 168, a 30 percent reduction. About 40,000 square feet of retail space will front the property. Former Treasure Island Fire Chief Charles Fant died Jan. 15 at St. Anthony's Hospital in St. Petersburg after a long battle with cancer. He was 64. Fant was a member of the Treasure Island Fire Department for 41 years and served as re chief for 30 years until his retirement in January 2012. Pressure from Madeira Beach residents resulted in another major development in the city being reduced in size and redesigned. A revised plan that features a signi cant downsizing of the Holiday Isle Marina, proposed for the Holton property on the Intracoastal Waterway at the foot of the Tom Stuart Causeway Bridge, was presented at the Feb. 14 City Commission meeting. The number of buildings was reduced from the six approved in 2016 to two. A 122-room condo-hotel is now gone from the plan. The remaining 150room hotel was reduced from seven oors over two floors of parking to five floors over one parking oor. Residential condo units were reduced from 68 to 31 in one ve- oor building that is replacing three previous sevenand nine-story structures. A planned standalone restaurant will now be located in the hotel. A proposed marina will have 124 boat slips, which are 40 less than originally planned. In mid-March, Al Johnson was elected mayor of St. Pete Beach, defeating interim mayor Deborah Schechner and community activist John-Michael Fleig. Johnson's term runs through March 2020. The Treasure Island City Commission took on a new look in March when challenger Deborah Toth defeated longtime commissioner Phil Collins for the District 1 seat and Ralph Kennedy defeated Patrick Jeffares for the District 3 seat. Treasure Island leaders agreed in early See THE BEACHES, page 12A Photo courtesy of Powerboat P1 SuperStock USAThe third race of the Powerboat P1 SuperStock USA series made its Pinellas County debut June 17-18 off St. Pete Beach behind the Post Card Inn.

SeminoleBy TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE One of the biggest stories of the year involves the loss of the Seminole Water Tower. The county demolished the longtime icon, which stood at the northwest corner of 74th Avenue and 113th Street, this summer after much debate. The tower had been decommissioned in 2012. At the end of 2016, Seminole residents and leaders realized the county intended to demolish the tower and sell the scrap metal. A group of citizens formed the Friends of the Seminole Water Tower and launched a campaign to save the structure, exploring various funding options. Meanwhile, the city attempted to negotiate a lease proposal with the county for the tower. But councilors were unhappy with the terms proposed by county leaders and rejected their offer at the end of June. The proposed lease called for the city to pay approximately $52,700 per year with a 3 percent annual increase for 99 years. The city would also be responsible for deferred maintenance of the property, estimated to cost around $135,000. The lease would have also forbidden historic and other special designations, making it dif cult for the city to obtain sponsorships and grants to cover upkeep of the structure. Demolition of the tower began in July and was completed this fall. Other news items from 2017: • The city celebrated the opening of Waterfront Park, 10400 Park Blvd., Nov. 4. The park, which is partially funded by state grants, will be completed in three phases. Phase I, which includes a kayak and canoe launch, waterfront boardwalk, a new concrete entrance and minimal entrance signage, stormwater infrastructure, a shell/crushed concrete driveway and parking area, and a potable water wash down area, was completed this summer. Later phases of the project will include the installation of the county's only allabilities playground. • Incumbents Roger Edelman and Bob Matthews reclaimed their City Council seats in the Nov. 7 election. Edelman, who was named vice mayor in November, took 35 percent of the vote, while Matthews trailed just behind him with 34.7 percent of the vote. They defeated challengers Thomas Christy and Joseph Pacelli. After Hurricane Irma hit the Tampa Bay area as a Category 1 hurricane in September, the storm littered Seminole with debris and left many without power. As city residents regrouped, many heartwarming stories surfaced from the area. In one case, a group of residents collected donations and served a hot meal at Seminole High School to around 400 linesmen working with Duke Energy to restore power to the area. Another story involves an evacuee from Indian Rocks Beach staying at a friend's Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTYThe fate of the Seminole Water Tower was the biggest story in the city of Seminole in 2017.

The Beaches 3A Beacon, December 28, 2017Madeira Beach water quality has improved By WAYNE AYERSTBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH Water samples taken from Boca Ciega Bay and other city waterways reveal the water quality is improving. That assessment was given by Joe Thames, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System coordinator for Pinellas County, at a special City Commission meeting on Dec. 19. Thames was at the meeting to discuss renewal of Madeira Beach's contract for water sampling and monitoring. Public Works and Marina Director Dave Marsicano said the city is continually working with the county to improve and do a better job. Thames said water sampling of Boca Ciega Bay, the Intracoastal and fresh water sources in the city show "everything is improving." The program includes testing for levels of phosphorous, nitrogen, chlorophyll, fecal matter and total suspended solids. Thames said testing shows reduced amounts or stabilizing of those contaminants present in the city's waterways. "We've had very good comments on Madeira Beach," Thames said. He cited the city's permeable pavement, which allows water to soak through, and drainage control projects as examples of what the city is doing to improve water quality in the bay. Marsicano said, "We're working to further improve those numbers. We only want to see it get better." Thames said there are eight sampling periods a year in Madeira Beach. The program costs the city $2,500 annually. Commissioner Nancy Oakley was skeptical of the reported progress in water quality improvement. "I haven't seen it improve much at all," she said, especially in the bay waters behind her house. Thames said the commission's approval was needed for a two-year extension of the water quality monitoring agreement. The program will be re-evaluated in 2020 and changes made if needed. The commission agreed to extend the contract.Wireless microphones for workshopsThe commission moved closer to holding more informal workshop sessions at a table setting, with a review of wireless microphones needed for that purpose. Oakley and Mayor Maggi Black had pushed for having workshop meetings at a table rather than the dais since last April. But the move was resisted by thenCity Manager Shane Crawford, who said broadcasting the sessions would be dif cult and the move would be expensive, costing $10,000 to $15,000.Treasure Island moves ahead on new amber LED streetlights By BOB McCLURETampa Bay NewspapersTREASURE ISLAND City commissioners passed a resolution Dec. 19 requesting the Florida Department of Transportation to grant a lighting variance to Gulf Boulevard, allowing for the installation of more turtlefriendly amber LED streetlights. The variance is necessary to allow Duke Energy to make the change from white to amber LEDs. The variance only affects Gulf Boulevard, which is a state road under FDOT jurisdiction. Streetlights on city streets within view of the beach, such as Sunset Beach, do not require a variance. There is no cost to the city for the resolution to FDOT, but Duke Energy indicated recently it would involve a one-time cost of $30,000 and an additional $3,000 per month rental cost. Retro tting the city's streetlights with amber LEDs is expected to prevent future turtle disorientations and ensure compliance with state and federal laws. As a condition of the city's beach renourishment permit, two beach lighting evaluations are conducted annually. An evaluation completed in May by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium concluded that Treasure Island streetlights were a source of light pollution. No time table has been set for the change by Duke. In other action, commissioners: Decided to take another look at the future of possible medical marijuana dispensaries in the city at the Jan. 16 meeting. Commissioners indicated they would like to have a feeling for the community's perspective on this topic. Moved forward on a resolution to purchase 14 sets of bunker gear for the city's re department at a cost of 26,950, the low bid by Municipal Emergency Services. The equipment is used for protection from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear contamination. Moved forward on a resolution to purchase two replacement police vehicles and the necessary equipment to go with them. The vehicles a 2018 Ford F-150 Crew Cab 4x4 and a 2018 Ford Interceptor SUV all-wheel drive would be purchased from Prestige Ford in Mount Dora for $56,864 after trade-ins. Bartow Ford would provide additional equipment and the transfer of existing equipment to the new vehicles at a cost of $17,900. In addition, two new laptops would be purchased for the vehicles at a cost of $6,028, bringing the entire deal to $80,792. Moved forward on a request by the South Pasadena Community Band to use a 4-foot by 8-foot sign on the Treasure Island Causeway to promote the band's free concerts at the Treasure Island Community Center. 1214 Redken Color Retouch (substitute highlights for $30 additional)Redken Chemistry System Deep Conditioner Haircut and Blow-Dry Hot or Cold CappuccinoO er ends 1-11-18 Limit one o er per customer Hair € Nails € Cappuccino Bar Call 727-545-1905 CELEBRATING 27 YEARS IN BUSINESS5848 54th Ave. N., St. Petersburg www.salonvolo.com122817 THIS OFFER AVAILABLE AS A GIFT CERTIFICATE.70% O Color, Haircut & Style!Your Experience Will Include: Consultation$3995Only PERMANENT MAKE-UPSHAMPOO/CUT/STYLE 25 SPA MANICURE/PEDICURE HOT STONE w/ SHELLAC 39 EYELASH EXTENSIONS MINK LASH 75 COLOR/STYLE/CUT 69 MICROBLADING EYEBROW 250 Regular 450 PARTIAL FOILS/CUT/STYLE 79BROWS OR EYELINER 150 Reg. 250  LIPS 200 (Reg. 350) TBN Offer Expires 01/31/18 TBN Offer Expires 01/31/18 TBN Offer Expires 01/31/18First Time Clients Only.

4A Community Beacon, December 28, 2017However, thanks to $133 million in Penny money spent since 2010, emergency management staff and rst responders had two hurricane-hardened buildings where they could take shelter and stand ready to assist the public before, during and after the storm. The biggest investment, $82.3 million, paid for the 208,403-square-foot Public Safety Complex, which opened in 2014 in a non-evacuation zone at 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo. The ve-building complex, built to withstand Category 5 hurricane winds, houses the sheriff's Administration Building, a Regional 911 Center, Emergency Operations Center, vehicle maintenance building and a central energy plant. The second investment of $28 million paid for an Emergency Responders Building, which opened in 2010, at 22211 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater. It also was designed to withstand Category 5 hurricane winds. Other Penny investments toward hurricane preparedness include $3 million to harden the Animal Services building, $20 million for emergency communications towers and an additional 9,614 shelter spaces. Widespread electrical outages that lasted for about a week had Duke Energy on the hot seat after Irma. Nearly 500,000 of the county's customers were without power right after the storm. Pinellas County was one of the hardest hit areas. The outages caused problems with traffic lights. Lack of air conditioning at the county's facilities that serve the elderly was another major problem. Power outages at pump stations meant residents had to limit water owing into the sewers, so they were asked to postpone doing laundry, running dishwashers and ushing toilets. Harry Sideris, president of Duke Energy Florida, said that Hurricane Irma was the most devastating hurricane in the company's history. It affected 1.3 million of its 1.8 million customers in Florida and affected all 35 counties where Duke provides service. The response to the outages was consequently the largest mobilization in the company's history. In October, Sideris updated the county commission on some of the measures Duke had taken and planned to take to improve its response to major events such as Hurricane Irma. Since 2004, DEF has invested more than $2 billion to harden its electrical system, he said. The investments include "self-healing technology" that allows the grid to "self-identify" problems and react to them by isolating those areas of rerouting power. He admitted that a better job could have been done in some areas, including customer communication. He also said places where lines were located in trees or on private property proved the most challenging. Hurricane season ended Nov. 30 and preparations are already beginning for next season, which begins June 1. The 2017 season produced 17 named storms of which 10 became hurricanes including six major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5) including the rst two major hurricanes to hit the continental U.S. in 12 years. Thanks to lessons learned during Hurricane Irma, of cials say they will be better prepared in the future. Another good reason to celebrate. Commission Chair Janet Long listed a few other accomplishments during the commission's last meeting of the year on Dec. 12, including the commissioner's decision to up the Health Department millage rate so every public school could have a fulltime nurse. Other items on the list were: 31 updated kennels at Animal Services. New committee for persons with disabilities. Designation as a Purple Heart County. Designation as an Age Friendly County. New app Ready Pinellas. 2.1 billion pounds of recycling, giving the county the top rate in the state for the second year. Record season at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport. Bed tax collections of nearly $54.8 million an 11 percent increase over 2016. "It's been a great year," Long said. Suzette Porter is TBNÂ’s Pinellas County editor.

Fire ghter Jim Lundh and returned it to him. The stuffed animal had been given to him by his young daughter 18 years ago and he brought it with him to every call. Then, Sept. 27 through Oct. 2, thousands of Florida residents affected by the hurricane traveled to Seminole when a Food for Florida Disaster Food Assistance Program opened at the Holland G. Mangum Recreation Complex. It was the rst of its kind to open following Hurricane Irma. A proposed plan to build a joint-use Seminole Welcome Center with the Seminole Chamber of Commerce at Waterfront Park, located at 10400 Park Blvd., was derailed after the city learned grant restrictions from the state would make it dif cult to build on that property. At the council's Nov. 28 meeting, it was revealed that the chamber and the Edward J. and Vivian E. Lurie Charitable Foundation, which is providing $500,000 to fund construction of the center, are considering other properties throughout the city that would be a better t for the building with less restrictions. 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. The council established the 2017-2018 millage rate of 2.4793 mills at its Sept. 27 meeting. This is the 11th straight year the city has maintained this rate. The council also approved the 2017-2018 budget, which includes a general fund budget of approximately $16.96 million, a special events fund for approximately $102,000, a debt services fund for approximately $961,000, and the tree and landscape mitigation fund for approximately $50,000. On Feb. 18, the Seminole Chamber of Commerce honored Bill Miller as Mr. Seminole. Miller, who bought the Lewis W. Mohn Funeral Home last year, has contributed to the Seminole community in numerous ways, including through work with Seminole Elementary School, the Kiwanis Club of Seminole Breakfast and the Pinellas Seminole Woman's Club. At the same ceremony, Greek Village was named Business of the Year, while Diane Richardson and Mary Ellen Kramp of Relief at Hand were honored as Bosses of the Year and Pat Alexander of the Alexander Spine Institute won the chamber's Merit Award. Earlier this year, the city mourned the loss of past Mr. Seminole and former mayor Jimmy Johnson when he died July 15 at 74 following a lengthy battle with lung disease. Johnson has long been involved in the Seminole community through various organizations, and also worked in management at Kmart Co. and served as executive director of the chamber.

The boxes will feed 25 local families. Shepard, who has conducted the food collection for the past 13 years during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, said she began the effort because “I was in that situation years ago and had it happen to me and I thought I could turn around and do it back.”Feeding minds, stomachs Photo by DAVID GREENEleven-year-old Graci Tubbs, right, accepts a $200 check from Donna Hayden, vice president/president elect of the Kiwanis Club of Seminole Breakfast.

A second public hearing and adoption of the agreement will take place at the Jan. 9 council meeting. The McDonald's, which sits on .9 acres, was built in 2001. The site upgrades include the addition of a second drive-through lane with a menu board, which con icted with city code, said Mark Ely, community development director. Other upgrades to the property include landscaping and parking improvements, and the removal of two non-conforming free-standing signs. The larger of the signs, which was 48' tall and 400 square feet, was affected during Hurricane Irma and removed, Ely said. McDonald's owners will install a single sign at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Starkey Road for the restaurant. This redevelopment proposal came before council at a Dec. 20, 2016, workshop and councilors authorized City Manager Ann ToneyDeal to negotiate the terms of a development agreement for the site with McDonald's owners. The project was delayed due to a pending legal issue with McDonald's, which was unrelated to the city. In other action items, the council: Approved a request by Addison on Long Bayou LLC, which is developing Seminole Bay Apartments, a 247-unit apartment complex at 10405 Addison Way, to vacate a 15foot right-of-way that runs north and south on the west side of the property. Toney-Deal said the matter "is a simple right-of-way abandonment." Utility companies have indicated they have no further use for the easement, and city staff had no objections to the abandonment, she added. Councilors also approved an ordinance prohibiting the use of a BB gun and other weapons to shoot or shoot at any animal or fowl in city limits. The council approved the ordinance on its first reading at the Oct. 24 meeting. Following that meeting, it was amended to add a ne schedule.

8A Seminole Beacon, December 28, 2017 Photos courtesy of EMPATH HEALTHThe Lights of Lake Park Estates, which operates nightly Dec. 1-31 from 6 to 10 p.m., raises funds for Suncoast Hospice.For a good causeSubdivision’s holiday lights bene t Suncoast Hospice By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay Newspapers SEMINOLE Twenty- ve years ago, Seminole resident Ruby Dow passed away. Her husband, Eddie Dow, was so impressed by his wife's care from Suncoast Hospice at their own home in her nal days that he decided to honor her memory by raising money for the organization. "He was so grateful for the care she received, he wanted to give back to Suncoast," said Sarah Varga, marketing and communication manager for Empath Health, which operates Suncoast Hospice. That year, Dow was joined by a handful of homeowners in his neighborhood, Lake Park Estates, in decorating their homes for the Christmas holidays. With their houses resplendent in festive lights and holiday lawn dŽcor, they set up a donation box on their block for those who came to admire their efforts. They raised around $500 that first year and donated it to the nurses at Suncoast Hospice who needed funds to purchase holiday gifts for their patients. Since then, the Lights of Lake Park Estates has grown to include 3.2 miles of lights and has raised around $780,000 for hospice. Today, the money goes into Suncoast Hospice's general funds "for those little extras that sometimes people might need," Varga said. She added, "People come into our care from all walks of life. Some come in with little or nothing." The funds raised by the Lights of Lake Park Estates has been used for various needs over the years, from purchasing a plane ticket for a woman in their care to travel to her home state of Maine for one last time to purchasing holiday gifts for children of those in hospice care. The neighborhood fundraiser "has made such a difference," Varga said. Even though Eddie has since died as well, the neighborhood still continues the tradition of raising money for the hospice non-pro t through their holiday lights. "They really put aside their holiday time," she said. "We're so grateful for them." The lights will remain up through Dec. 31 and are turned on from 6 to 10 p.m. each night. Visit lightsoflakepark.com for a map of the lights and more information.

Outdoors 9A Beacon, December 28, 2017Local dolphins have old home week Photo by ANN WEAVERShasta the yearling bottlenose dolphin calf leaps out of the water, excited by a recent gathering of local dolphins in a maritime “old home week.”Sparkling in anticipation, a fair-haired lady ew here all the way from England for a blessed winter break. Once here, she effortlessly shook off the damp chill of her island home in our sunny winter days. Rather than sugar plums, her head danced with visions of marine magni cence: elegant shore birds, gulls in garbs of grays and white, pelicans soaring in splendid breeding colors, grizzled half-ton manatees, and daintier quarterton dolphins maybe even a few baby dolphins for garnish the way ribbon adds sparkle to Christmas wrappings. Perhaps it was Father Christmas who transformed a Macy's Christmas Parade into a magnificent dolphin parade just for her. Maybe it was dolphin "old home week" at sea. Either way, the fair-haired lady's wish to see Florida dolphins came true with Christmas bounty: A single boat ride along our local waterways with her new husband became a dizzying day of 21 different groups of dolphins, one right after another like oats in a parade! Get out on the water on any day, and you are likely to see a dozen dolphins on average. That number varies across the year, however, and in winter months you are likely to see half that number. But on this dolphin "old home week," there were four to ve times more dolphins than expected! Getting twice as much as you hoped for is wonderful, but getting ve times as much is wonderful, rare, and memorable, even at Christmas time! What a gift! Local waters are cool in December, and local dolphins become very active the way a dog prances on autumn walks. But the dolphin "old home week" took their characteristic actions even further. Small groups of dolphins formed and faded continuously, the way people mingle at Christmas parties. Around the islands inside of John's Pass, Stick and her little calf Stem mingled with two teens, two junior bulls, and local lady Babyface. Dolphin Watch reported Stem as the little guy that was plagued with strange spasms as a very young dolphin; happily, he has behaved normally for months and we hope he has outgrown his issue. Babyface is the dolphin that was brutally wounded when she was run over by a boat two years ago; happily, she too has managed well despite her disability. We think this is partly because she has many different ways to nd her food. Action was everywhere. The teens jousted with the calf. The junior bulls swung over to the mother dolphin in greeting and kept going. Babyface ambled around without joining anyone, but then she secretly trailed the junior bulls for a couple of miles after they headed out. A mile later the junior bulls greeted three more mothers and their calves, which pitched the baby dolphins into a frenzy of racing, but swung well away to avoid two senior bulls as they headed to the Narrows. The two senior bulls invited a young calf to play but the mother dolphin only let one of bulls play with her baby, not the other one! There was general snacking, sh tossing and lunging but mostly mingling, all part of the lightness of dolphin behavior in cool waters. Entranced by each group of dolphins she saw, the fair-haired lady from England kept thinking that each would be the last of the boat trip. Yet it went and on, until even the lovely lady and her new husband were heady with 21 different groups of dolphins, like showing a child 21 different oats in a parade. They had also been introduced to each dolphin personally but, like most Christmas parties, probably won't remember everybody's name. Why were so many dolphins here that memorable day? Dolphins gather spontaneously when drawn to something attractive. The attraction is often food. But it is often also each other or what the other dolphins are doing. This memorable gathering was probably a little of both. But it sounds like people at a Christmas party, doesn't it?

For more information, call 727-392-3245.Business breakfast plannedSEMINOLE The Seminole Chamber of Commerce will hold its monthly Chamber Business Breakfast Wednesday, Jan. 24, 8 a.m., at the chamber conference center, 7777 131st St. The guest speaker will be Yolanda Cowart from the Florida Small Business Center & Pinellas Economic Development. Her presentation is called "2018 Fresh Start Great Year." For more information, call 727-392-3245.SPC hosts ex-hater now advocate for toleranceSEMINOLE A former member of a violent rightwing extremist group who left that lifestyle and now promotes love will be the featured speaker at a dinner program on Jan. 25 sponsored by the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at St. Petersburg College. Titled "Full of Hate: The Toll of Violent Extremism," the forum will be from 6-8:15 p.m. in the Conference Center at the Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N. Media co-sponsors are the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU Television. Tickets are $25, or $20 for students and educators. Angela King, a Florida native who turned to hate groups as a student to escape being bullied, will describe her journey from extremist hater to author, scholar and crusader against hate. 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 nonpro t 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 gure 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 rst three months of Trump's 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 rst quarter of 2017. What prompts people to join violent hate groups? How do their actions affect the American political scene? How does the Trump administration's 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.

Viewpoints 11A Beacon, December 28, 2017As this year ends it's pleasant to believe that humankind has made some advances. We want to feel we're a little bit ahead of the game, at least in a few categories. Following is a brief recap of some of the discoveries made about Americans (and others) during the past year. (Full disclosure: my source for most of what follows is the Dec. 22/29 issue of "The Week, my all-time favorite news magazine. This issue summarizes 2017 in dozens of ways.) ON THE HEALTH FRONT: Get a dog, and you will have a lower risk of heart disease and premature death. So says a Swedish study of 3.4 million persons. If you also eat chile peppers on a regular basis, you will be (or would have been) 13 percent less likely to die than nonchile pepper eaters during the test period. Even better for you, perhaps, is your coffee habit. During a 16-year study period researchers found that persons who drink two to four cups a day (decaf or regular) were 18 percent less Have you never married? Then you may be 42 percent more likely to be a victim of dementia. This according to 15 separate studies involving 800,000 persons. Possible reasons: Other health notes, in no special order: If you are between ages 50 and 71 and you eat a lot of red meat, you are boosting (by 26 percent) the chance that you will die of eight major diseases. Or at least one of them. Spending too much time (more than two hours a day) on social media can make you feel lonely. Likewise, too much time playing football can badly damage your brain. Of 111 NFL players who donated their brains to science, all but one were found to have CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), a disease that causes the brain to waste away. Tattoo ink may contain harmful levels of assorted metals. Keeping secrets can result in sleep loss, stress and other undesirables. So said Columbia University researchers who asked secretkeepers to talk about their experiences. The lead investigator said the participants actually behaved as if they were burdened by physical weight. Another bad habit is TV binge-watching. Researchers in the USA and Belgium studied 423 young adults who watched back-to-back episodes of their favorite shows. A result was a 98 percent higher risk for poor sleep. I should insert a cautionary note here. Please don't base any of your personal habits on the ndings I've listed above. They probably have some merit, but history has shown that experts are often mistaken. If you don't believe that, just talk to scientists who, 50 years ago, told us that global warming is a stupid idea set forth by pessimists. Along with scientific research, polling has become a source of information about you, me, our country and many other things. Following is a random listing of poll results during 2017: Americans are stressed and troubled. Most of us (59 percent) think we're at the lowest point in our country's history. A slightly higher percentage blame President Trump for this situation. But his backers are rock solid. One out of ve Americans (22 percent) say Trump would still have their support even if he shot someone on Manhattan's Fifth Ave. Will North Korea start a nuclear attack on the USA? Yes, say 73 percent of the persons who were asked. A slightly higher percentage (76) think the U.S. may take part in a nuclear war within the next three years. Almost half of all Americans are afraid to travel overseas, because of the threat of terrorism. Could a worldwide epidemic of yet unknown origins turn people into zombies? Yes, said 28 percent of interviewees. Is same-sex marriage acceptable? Yes, replied 60 percent of persons interviewed in an NBC-Wall Street Journal poll. One-third of Americans fear they may one day lose their jobs to robots. Speaking of which: 24 percent of men say they'd consider jumping into bed with a robot. Cancer patients began to treat their disease by using their own cells. To all of my 38 Faithful Readers and fellow staffers at TBNweekly.com I send sincere wishes for an enjoyable holiday season and a memorable 2018. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net. Largo is looking pretty good for being almost 113 years old. We're a little older, and a little wiser, but we're certainly not your grandmother's Largo anymore. The city is committed to community revitalization and we know that means that we have to be focused on redevelopment for the long haul. Downtown areas and residential neighborhoods that are facing challenging issues require us, as a community, to take a long-term view of economic recovery and reinvestment. We need every tool in the toolbox that we can get to accomplish this important work. We must continue working strategically and methodically on our redevelopment goals and objectives. This past year, we saw exciting changes in the city's community redevelopment area. Deteriorated apartments on West Bay Drive were demolished to make way for new investment. The construction of a new, 29-unit apartment building was completed on Ridge Road and will serve the burgeoning medical arts district, and our Community Redevelopment Agency inherited a weed- lled lot from the Florida Department of Transportation and transformed it into a beautiful pocket park. CRAs are a planning and financing tool created by local governments to revitalize targeted areas that have been neglected or forgotten. Cities use this tool to breathe new life into communities through projects such as roadway and infrastructure improvements, building renovations, and business development and property improvement grants. The money for improvements is funded through tax increment funding, not state or federal dollars. Tax increment nancing is an existing property tax revenue, not an additional tax. When a property's value in the CRA increases incrementally as a result of private and public investment, tax increment funds are re-invested into that speci c CRA right back where the property taxes were originally generated. Largo's CRA was not created in a vacuum. It was established after significant community outreach, public hearings, planning, and with the consent and approval of the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners. Largo's CRA Board is made up of our City Commission, and we have a citizens' advisory board to advise and weigh in on CRA matters. The CRA works hard to ensure that it is in compliance with reporting requirements designed to ensure government accountability and transparency. As local elected of cials, the commission ensures transparency so as to assure city residents that the CRA is a good steward of the public trust. The CRA plans are living, public documents with strategies created by the community (the people) with a shared vision for their neighborhood. This legislative session, state legislators have introduced proposed laws to limit how cities and counties can use this important redevelopment tool. Tallahassee is only in session for 90 days a year, but local government is responsible to its constituents 365 days a year. So, long after House and Senate committee hearings have concluded, after the lights go off in the Chamber hallways, we will be here day-in and dayout serving the needs of our community. My challenge to Florida's Legislature is this; let's continue the good work of revitalizing communities across Florida. Don't take away this important tool or weaken its ability to work well for cities and counties. CRAs in our community and around the State are working well; let's not x something that isn't broken. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, "government closest to the people serves the people best." Woody Brown is mayor of Largo and a resident and business owner in downtown Largo. He is also chairman of the Largo CRA board. He can be reached at wobrown@largo.com | wobrown@largo.com. LETTERS City of Seminole failed to serve residentsRe: City Council turns down rezoning request for low-income housing project,’ Dec. 21 Editor: Designated affordable housing does not exist within the city of Seminole. The city removed the incentives for affordable housing from their code in March 2017. Designated affordable housing rents do not fluctuate above the identi ed percentages of income levels, unlike market rate rental property. As such, the property remains affordable regardless of the market pressures we see in rental property today. Affordable rental property is one of the greatest needs facing Florida communities today. Pinellas County commissioners conduct workshops on how best to incentivize and attract good developers to provide services that will serve our most fragile residents There is a documented need for affordable housing within the city of Seminole limits; this project was the best use for this site a new apartment building, professionally managed, resident background checks, seniors only. Given the denial, PCHA can build 65 units by right. The need also exists for drug rehabilitation, veterans housing, homeless housing to name a few of the services PCHA provides. The city of Seminole missed an opportunity to identify 1) a taxable development for their most fragile residents xed income seniors 2) to mitigate the existing environmental issues on the property and 3) to remove the Pinellas County consent order that encumbers this property. All communities bene t from a healthy mix of age groups, ethnicity and education. Diversity creates a functional community for the bene t of all. The city failed in its mission to serve all of its residents. Dale Johnson Director of Development & ConstructionPrimericagroup. Top CIA spook looks back to 2016WASHINGTON Michael Morell, former acting head of the CIA, became a political animal in August 2016 when he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. This month, he came to grips with the consequences of that decision that it might have played into President Donald Trump's distrust of the intelligence community. It is possible, he told the Review Journal, "I played a role in that." Back to last year. In an opinion piece in The New York Times, Morell not only endorsed Clinton, he also warned that, to the eyes of an intelligence analyst, candidate Trump could be considered "an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation" whom Russian President Vladimir Putin had co opted by playing to Trump's demanding ego. When that impression was reinforced by Trump's description of a phone call with Putin on Thursday: "It was great. He said very nice things about what I've done for this country in terms of the economy, and then he said also some negative things in terms of what's going on elsewhere." In an interview this month with Politico's Susan Glasser, Morell did not describe his Clinton endorsement as a mistake. Even knowing what he knows now, he said, he could not say with certainty that he would not do it again. But he did say, "I don't think I fully thought through the implications." It was an interview that generated Beltway buzz. Morell, who served as CIA deputy director under President Barack Obama, proposed that people put themselves in Trump's shoes and recognize the reasons Trump has to suspect those charged with guarding American security. First, Trump saw a former CIA director (Morell) and former director of the National Security Agenda (Michael Hayden) criticizing him and his policies. Then he became the GOP nominee and received his rst intelligence brie ng. Within 48 hours of that, there were leaks criticizing the disruptive behavior of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn with briefers. Trump won in November and was supposed to get a daily brie ng. "And he doesn't," Morell told Politico. "And within a few days, there's leaks about how he's not taking the brie ng. So he must have thought ... Who are these guys? Are these guys out to get me? Is this a political organization?" In a follow-up interview this week, Morell told the Review Journal that "the intelligence community is not political," and noted that he did not endorse Clinton until three years after he left Langley. OK, but what about the leaks? Morell referred to leaks about Flynn's behavior. "So you don't know whether it's people in the brie ng who leaked it or when they went back to their bosses after the brie ng and gave them the download, whether their bosses did it or whether that information spread to the White House or other places in the government" where people could leak information gleaned third hand, he said. Morell believes that Trump thinks the intelligence community was behind the leak. Morell does not because intelligence staffers have to take regular polygraphs during which they are asked if they leaked information to the media. "Most leaks do not come out of the intelligence community for that reason," he said. Wherever they originated, Morell points out that the Flynn leak did not involve classified material so it wasn't a crime. Morell explained, "It's inappropriate to leak that? Absolutely. Is it a crime? No way." Morell, now a CBS News contributor, says the intelligence community put so much emphasis on ghting terrorism that it was late to see the threat posed by Moscow in the 2016 election. He would not be surprised, he told Politico, if special counsel Robert Mueller concludes the Trump campaign did not break the law in its dealings with Russia. If evidence exists, investigative reporters should have uncovered it by now, he added. Morell talked with the Review Journal in part because he was disappointed that many of the stories missed his most important point in his interview with Glasser. His big fear these days are the divisions in this country, and the news media's place in the schism. "I think the biggest threat to the United States is us," he said. At his son's urging, Morell read a book about former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. After the strongman's election, he said, the Venezuelan news media "becomes the political opposition and thereby it loses all its credibility with the Venezuelan people." He fears the same thing is happening in American journalism as well. When he picks up newspapers, Morell said, "I see a lot of bias. I'm not surprised the president sees all that and (decides) that the media are out to get him." Morell concluded, "What's interesting to me is that nobody in the media picked that up."

12A The Beaches Beacon, December 28, 2017March to accept a settlement for $850,000 in the ongoing lawsuit with Phil Graham Landscape Architecture over cracks in the Central Beach Trail. The mediated deal calls for the construction of a new Beach Trail and the replacement of 17 access modes to the beach, which also have cracks. The current sand wall will remain. Construction is expected to begin in early 2018. St. Pete Beach commissioners voted unanimously April 11 to approve a request for a conditional use permit for a mixed-use development on the site of the Coral Reef hotel property at 5750 Gulf Blvd. Owners of the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort plan to build a 217-room hotel on the site with an 811-space multistory parking garage, which will make up the proposed Sugar Sands at TradeWinds Island Grand Beach Resort. The building will include a timeshare sales center, a spa, tness center, a marketing of ce and a reception area. Madeira Beach officials voted 3-2 on May 4 to suspend City Manager Shane Crawford and re City Clerk Cheryl Crawford, Shane's wife. Newly-elected Mayor Maggi Black, who led the charge, said the move was needed "to make our city whole again." She insisted the move was "not based on retribution." Newly-elected commissioners Nancy Oakley and John Douthirt backed Black. A few weeks later, attorneys from both sides worked out a settlement agreement that ended Shane Crawford's employment with the city after 24 weeks as a consultant. The third race of the Powerboat P1 SuperStock USA series made its Pinellas County debut June 17-18 off St. Pete Beach behind the Post Card Inn. The event, presented by Mercury Racing and Powerboat P1 AquaX Racing, featured a series of SuperStock and high-powered jet ski races. Over 100 AquaX pro and amateur racers from around the world competed on personal watercraft at speeds of more than 70 mph. In addition, a total of nine SuperStock boats competed on a 2-mile oval course about 1,000 feet off the beach. The event is expected to return in 2018. Plans for a new complex that would provide police and fire services to the Redingtons were discussed at the July 12 Redington Shores Town Commission meeting. The proposed facility would be built on 173rd Avenue at the Redington Shores/North Redington Beach boundary. Redington Shores' town maintenance building is currently on the site. Funds from the new Penny for Pinellas are expected to pay for it. After four years of sitting vacant, it was announced in early August the site of the former Wine Cellar restaurant in North Redington Beach will soon be redeveloped into a group of restaurants called Redington Village. The two-acre site at 17307 Gulf Blvd., was purchased for $2.04 million by Redington Village LLC, which is a subsidiary of Tampa-based AG Development Group. Principals in the project are Allen Goins, chief executive of cer of AG Development, and Robert Schmidt of Belleair Shore, owner of Schmidt Investments of South Florida. Goins said the project encompasses four buildings and a total of 16,000 square feet. Plans call for 120 or more parking spaces. As work slowly wrapped up on the rst phase of the Pass-A-Grille Way road project, St. Pete Beach leaders took the rst step on the second phase Sept. 26. St. Pete Beach commissioners voted unanimously to approve a $10.2 million bid by Gibbs & Register, Inc. to complete the next leg of the project, from 19th Avenue south to First Avenue. The total cost will be in the area of $11.5 million after the city pays for new trees, street lights and a Duke Energy connection fee to a city storm water lift station. Madeira Beach gave the go-ahead in early October to a long-awaited drainage and roadway improvement project on Rex Place, approving spending just over $900,000. The work covers the entire road, from the intersection next to Winn-Dixie to the seawall by the Recreation Center. Al Carrier of Duel and Associates, the engineering rm managing the job, said the project includes new roadway construction, new curbs and a new storm water collection system. St. Pete Beach city commissioners passed an amendment to its ordinance regulating fats, oils and grease into the sewer system Oct. 10 that establishes alternative methods for measuring discharge into city sewers and sets an easier method for restaurants and auto repair shops to obtain a necessary commercial wastewater discharge permit. City Manager Wayne Saunders said the amendment gives the city more exibility with businesses on meeting the requirements for FOG discharges. A recall committee in Madeira Beach announced plans in mid-October to oust two city commissioners elected in March. Commissioners John Douthirt and Nancy Oakley, along with Mayor Maggi Black, won their seats in a hotly contested election, fueled mostly by controversy over two major developments planned for the city's eastern gateway corridor. A recall flyer charges Douthirt and Oakley with "numerous charter and Sunshine Law violations," as well as being incompetent and having "questionable ethics." A decision by Florida's Second District Court of Appeals Oct. 27 opened the door for the city of Treasure Island to again stage events on the beach but public parking on the beach remains illegal. After a four-year court battle, the appeals court ruled that it found no error in a lower court's decision that the city violated Section 161.58(2) of the Florida Statutes by allowing public parking of vehicles on the beach during city-sponsored events. However, the appellate court ruled the lower court "went too far" when it declared "any additional conduct illegal, declared the city's ordinance invalid and enjoined the city from hosting or allowing' any vehicular parking and driving on Treasure Island Beach.'" Translation: When the city hosts events on the beach, only vendor vehicles will now be allowed on the beach temporarily to load and unload. Treasure Island city commissioners named Garry Brumback city manager. The decision was announced Nov. 3, following interviews by commissions a day earlier. Brumback, 60, most recently was town manager of Southington, Connecticut where he served seven years. He also served previously as assistant city manager in Clearwater. He replaces Reid Silverboard, who retired in May after 10 years as Treasure Island city manager. After weeks of speculation about his future as Madeira Beach city manager, Derryl O'Neal decided Nov. 13 to return to his old job as city re chief. O'Neal was back and forth on the issue since being named city manager Oct. 10 to replace Shane Crawford. In a letter to the City Commission, O'Neal cited changing advice he was given concerning the retirement benefits he would receive if he made the switch from re chief to city manager. O'Neal said, in consulting with his financial adviser at Raymond James Investments and of cials of the Florida Retirement System and Florida Department of Revenue in Tallahassee, he was given con icting and sometimes incorrect information. O'Neal said he was told, during reviews of his nancial status, that he "would be OK," as the city manager is an appointed position with an exempt status. Later, he was advised "the FRS retirement bene t that I had worked toward for the past 30 years would stop and all my assets would be frozen inde nitely." The barrage of information caused O'Neal, after initially accepting the city manager position to step down and request a return to being re chief two weeks later, on Oct. 27. Then three days later, on Oct. 30, O'Neal announced he wanted to remain in the city manager job, for now, and evaluate his options. As the year ended, Treasure Island officials were still holding out hope the Federal Highway Administration would give them the thumbs-up to return tolls to the Treasure Island Causeway. Commissioners want the endorsement of the FHWA after Interim City Manager Amy Davis received an email from Cynthia Eisenmacher, the federal tolling program manager for the FHWA's Center for Innovative Finance Support, listing ve exceptions to a federal statute that restricts the city's ability to toll Causeway Boulevard. With that in mind, city leaders moved forward on a proposal by Thornton Williams of the Thornton Law Group to engage FHWA to determine if the city is able to qualify for any of the exceptions and return tolls to the causeway again.

Outdoors 13A Beacon, December 28, 2017Fish active, plenty of bait abounds entering JanuaryA December that started off concerning, as far as the weather, no doubt turned into another beauty.As we enter January, water temperatures are holding in the low 70s. For the most, part fish remain active, bait can still be found and whether you fish inshore or offshore there are plenty of options.Spotted seatrout shing remains very good along the spoil banks up and down the Intracoastal Waterway. Free-lining pilchards or select shrimp along the deep-side dropoffs on the incoming tide have been producing good numbers of trout ranging in size from 16 to 20 inches. Occasionally, some have been much larger than that. There are good numbers of the slot-sized sh out there. So we've been releasing the sh over 20 inches. It's the larger sh that will produce the most eggs on the upcoming spawn. Scaled sardines and small to medium-sized thread ns can be found holding on the Bay bridges, as well as the pass bridges at night. Offshore, gag grouper is now closed. Hog sh and grunts will be the staple over the next few months. Hogfish numbers are good and ledges as shallow as 20 feet are holding schools of them. Generally speaking, the deeper you go the better opportunity you have to catch them on rod and reel. The shallow ledges can be holding schools of spot tail pin sh, small sea bass and regular pin sh that can wipe out your shrimp stocks quickly. We have been targeting ledges in 40 feet this past week. Visibility has been good so we have been dropping down to a 25-pound uorocarbon leader in order to get action. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Outdoors notesAmberjack season reopens May 1 The greater amberjack recreational season in Gulf state waters will remain closed through April 30, and will reopen to harvest May 1-31 and Aug. 1-Oct. 31, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has announced. Greater amberjack is over shed and undergoing over shing, and the season has closed increasingly early in recent years due to federal quotas being met or exceeded, FWC said in a press release. This new season structure will optimize recreational fishing opportunities in both the spring and fall while minimizing harvest during the spawning season, helping to rebuild the stock.

All other Gulf state waters (except waters off Monroe County) and all Gulf federal waters will reopen June 1 through Dec. 31. The harvest closure was established to ensure the long-term sustainability of Atlantic grouper species by protecting them during their spawning season.

Beacon, December 28, 2017 Coming attractions: 2018Merger means Disney likely to dominate the box of ce for the foreseeable future By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersThe Walt Disney Company – which already owns Marvel Studios and Lucas lm – announced recently that it will acquire a broad swathe of assets from 21st Century Fox. Yes, that means Disney will recover all those stray Marvel properties that had eluded them, including The X-Men, Deadpool and The Fantastic Four. It also means Disney will be overseeing the upcoming sequels to “Avatar.” What does that mean? In 2018, everything’s coming up Disney. Well, almost everything. As 2017 comes to a close, it’s time to take a look at next year’s slate Hollywood follies. Before jumping into that long list, we should examine 2017’s most successful endeavors. As of Dec. 26, the top domestic box of ce moneymaker is “Beauty and the Beast,” which has made $504 million domestically according to Box Of ce Mojo, a website that tracks box of ce revenue. It is followed by “Wonder Woman,” with $412 million; and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” with $397 million. Looking at the chart for worldwide grosses, “Beauty and the Beast” remains in the top spot with $1.26 billion. Taking second place is “The Fate of the Furious” with $1.23 billion. “Despicable Me 3” comes in at No. 3 with $1.0 billion. Other films making it into the top 10 for domestic box of ce totals include “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “It,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Despicable Me 3,” “Logan” and “The Fate of the Furious.” Five of the top 10 domestic grossing lms leap off the pages of comic books and feature superheroes. Only two family-friendly films – both rated PG – made the top 10 this year: “Beauty and the Beast” and “Despicable Me 3.” Conversely, only two R-rated lms reached the top 10: “It” and “Logan.” Those trends will likely continue in the coming year. Following is a look at 15 of the most anticipated lms of 2018.‘Black Panther’Release date: Feb. 16 Director: Ryan Coogler Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis Genre: Comic book, action Marvel Studios delves deeper into the story of T’Challa and his kingdom, Wakanda. Black Panther is one of the most iconic characters to come out of the Marvel Bullpen during the Silver Age, making his rst appearance in 1966, in issue 52 of Fantastic Four. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Led by Chadwick Boseman in the title role, the upcoming lm boasts an incredibly talented cast and is generating as much excitement among fans as “Avengers: In nity War,” which also hits theaters in 2018.‘Annihilation’ Release date: Feb. 23 Director: Alex Garland Starring: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac Genre: Thriller, action, science ction and adventure Paramount Pictures will release this science fantasy/action/horror lm based on the novel of the same name by author and literary critic Jeff VanderMeer, a resident of Tallahassee and three-time World Fantasy Award winner. “Annihilation” is the rst book in VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy. The story follows an expedition into an environmental disaster zone that has already claimed many victims.‘A Wrinkle in Time’Release date: March 9 Director: Ava DuVernay Starring: Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Chris Pine, Zach Gali anakis, Andre Holland, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard, Will McCormack and Michael Pena Genre: Family, science fantasy If you attended public school during or after the late 1960s, chances are some teacher introduced you to “A Wrinkle in Time.” This 1962 science fantasy novel written by Madeleine L’Engle won the Newberry Medal along with several other prestigious awards. It is long overdue for a serious cinematic adaptation – although Disney did made an earlier attempt in 2003 with a less-than-spectacular TV movie that even the author disliked. This time around, Walt Disney Studios is showing far more respect for the subject matter, tapping director Ava DuVernay to helm the project.‘Tomb Raider’Release date: March 16 Director: Roar Uthaug Starring: Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Sir Derek Jacobi and Kristin Scott Thomas Genre: Action and adventure Do we really need to reboot this franchise? I don’t think so … but Hollywood movie moguls never ask for my opinion – so here we are. Let’s consider the history: “Tomb Raider,” the video game developed by Core Design and published by Eidos Interactive, was originally released in 1996. At the time, it was considered one of the greatest video games ever made. It generated two lms – “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” (2001) and “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” (2003) – in which Angelina Jolie starred in the title role. In 2013, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix releaed “Tomb Raider,” the 10th title in the game franchise. The cinematic reboot is supposedly based on this release.‘Paci c Rim Uprising’Release date: March 23 Director: Steven S. DeKnight Starring: John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Cailee Spaeny, Rinko Kikuchi, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day Genre: Action and science ction In this corner, we have super-sized sea monsters (also known as interdimensional kaiju). In the opposite corner, we have giant humanoid robots (also known as Jaegers). And … ght! It may be a bit of a surprise that this franchise managed to get the Photo courtesy of MARVEL STUDIOSChadwick Boseman stars in “Black Panther,” the next lm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Beacon, December 28, 2017 green-light for a sequel. The rst lm – 2013’s “Paci c Rim” – didn’t do very well domestically, earning $101 million, a little more than half the lm’s production budget of $190 million. Overseas, “Paci c Rim” was a bigger box of ce draw. Foreign revenue exceeded $300 million. ‘The New Mutants’ Release date: April 13 Director: Josh Boone Starring: Charlie Heaton, Anya Taylor Joy, Maisie Williams, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt and Alice Braga Genre: Action, science ction and adventure Look everybody: The X-Men had a baby! Well, a spin-off, so to speak, featuring an ensemble cast of teenage mutant superheroes. In the publishing world, The New Mutants can be traced back to Marvel Graphic Novel No. 4. Created by Chris Claremont and artist Bob McLeod, the original team consisted of Cannonball, Karma, Mirage, Sunspot and Wolfsbane. Some of these characters will appear in the lm. ‘Avengers: In nity War’Release date: May 4 Directors: Anthony Russo and Joe Russo Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland, Paul Rudd and Josh Brolin Genre: Action, science ction and adventure‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’Release date: May 25 Directors: Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Ron Howard Starring: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Michael K. Williams, Ian Kenny, Warwick Davis, Clint Howard and Paul Bettany Genre: Action, science fantasy and adventure The good news is that the screenplay was written by Lawrence “The Empire Strikes Back” Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. The not-so-good news is that the first two directors on the project – Phil Lord and Chris Miller – apparently got sacked over “creative differences.” The unexpected-but-probably-promising news is that Lucas lm tapped Ron “Opie” Howard to come to the rescue. The hope is that the lm will have a space Western feel to it as it gives audiences a glimpse at a young roguish smuggler before that fateful meeting in the Mos Eisley Cantina that drew him into the rebellion. Am I the only person thinking about re-reading Brian Daley’s trilogy “Han Solo at Stars’ End,” “Han Solo’s Revenge” and “Han Solo and the Lost Legacy”? ‘Ocean’s 8’Release date: June 8 Director: Gary Ross Starring: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Richard Armitage, James Corden, Nora ‘Awkwafina’ Lum, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter Genre: Action and adventure OK, let’s start at the beginning because this is complicated. In 1960, Lewis Milestone directed “Ocean’s 11,” a heist lm featuring no less than ve members of the Rat Pack, including Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop. The story follows a group of veterans who are recruited into a scheme to rob ve different Las Vegas casinos in one night. Fast forward to 2001. Steven Soderbergh directed a remake of the 1960 lm, calling it “Ocean’s Eleven.” That lm starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Andy Garca and Julia Roberts. Two sequels – Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and Ocean’s Thirteen (2007) – followed. Fast forward again. “Ocean’s 8” is being described as both a sequel to and an all-female reboot of Soderbergh’s trilogy. ‘The Incredibles 2’Release date: June 15 Director: Brad Bird Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner and Samuel L. Jackson Genre: Action, animation, adventure and family It’s about time, Pixar. Seriously: Why did it take 14 years to get back to this franchise? By comparison, over a 15-year period, three Toy Story movies were released. Over a nine-year period, three Cars movies were released – along with the spin-off DisneyToon lms “Planes” and “Planes: Fire & Rescue.” Maybe the executives at Disney-Pixar didn’t think that audiences were interested in superhero movies – because, there are so few of those around these days. Also, can I just go ahead and ask for a mash-up between The Incredibles and Fantastic Four?‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’Release date: June 22 Director: J.A. Bayona Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum Genre: Thriller, action, science ction and adventure Following are ways in which this movie differs from others in the franchise: 1. It is about dinosaurs that live on an island; and, 2. The dinosaurs occasionally devour people (with all the running and the screaming and the “somebody save my baby!”) So, actually, maybe it is somewhat similar to the earlier lms. It’s OK – they’re dinosaurs. Who gets tired of watching dinosaurs? Maybe this is all leading to a dinosaur apocalypse. Or maybe the dinosaurs will get sick and become zombie dinosaurs. It could be titled “Jurassic World: The Stomping Dead.” If anyone needs a script for that, contact me.‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’Release date: July 6 Director: Peyton Reed Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Michael Douglas, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins and Randall Park Genre: Action and adventure Marvel Studios continues a busy release schedule in with its third offering of 2018 – and the 20th lm in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this sequel to 2015’s “Ant-Man,” the heroes are asked to rescue Hank Pym’s wife from the quantum realm, which is a microverse contained within a spacewall which can only be breached at certain points. Too sciencey? Remember that episode of “Mork and Mindy” when Mork takes a cold capsule to shrink his nasal membranes and ends up shrinking himself into an alternate universe? There you go.‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’Release date: Nov. 2 Director: Simon Kinberg Starring: Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jessica Chastain, Alison Blaire, Lamar Johnson and Evan Peters Genre: Action and science ction Simon Kinberg directs this adaptation of Chris Claremont’s “The Dark Phoenix Saga.” The lm will be set in the 1990s following the defeat of Apocalypse. ‘Aquaman’Release date: Dec. 21 Director: James Wan Starring: Jason Momoa, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Ludi Lin, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Temuera Morrison, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman Genre: Action and adventure Jason Momoa has already succeeded in making Aquaman cool – and that was no simple task. For Gen X kids raised “The Super Friends” and the Bronze Age run of “Justice League of America,” Traditionally, Aquaman was generally the superhero who took the call whenever a ship was off course or when Sandy and Bud Ricks misplaced Flipper. If you were to rank undersea-dwelling comic book and cartoon characters, Marvel’s Namor the Sub-Mariner and Disney’s King Triton would take the top spots. Poor Aquaman would be tied with Hanna-Barbera’s Jabberjaw. Momoa changed all that, giving audiences a Conan-like interpretation of Aquaman. By the way, Momoa’s portrayal of Conan wasn’t as compelling.‘Mary Poppins Returns’Release date: Dec. 25 Director: Bob Marshall Starring: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Dick Van Dyke, Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh, Joel Dawson and Angela Lansbury Genre: Fantasy and musical When “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was released in December 2017, a bunch of whiny naysayers ooded social media with scorn and derision. Among their ridiculous complaints was the frequently repeated pronouncement that the new franchise installment was so bad that it “ruined” their childhood by poisoning their beloved Star Wars nostalgia. There is nothing reasonable nor respectable about these juvenile ravings. However, if Walt Disney Studios isn’t extremely careful with “Mary Poppins Returns,” it could totally ruin my childhood.

Opening this weekend ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ features Bening; Day-Lewis stars in ‘Phantom Thread’ Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersIn the closing days of 2017, only a handful of movies will nd their way into theaters. While Hollywood has nothing slated to open in wide release this weekend, the following lms will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters.‘Phantom Thread’Genre: Drama Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville and Vicky Krieps Director: Paul Thomas Anderson Rated: R Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the con rmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a xture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he nds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest lm, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. “Phantom Thread” is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.‘In the Fade’Genre: Drama Cast: Diane Kruger, Denis Moschitto, Nuan Acar and Johannes Krisch Director: Fatih Akin Rated: R Out of nowhere, Katja’s life falls apart when her husband Nuri and little son Rocco are killed in a bomb attack. Her friends and family try to give her the support she needs, and Katja somehow manages to make it through the funeral. But the mind-numbing search for the perpetrators and reasons behind the senseless killing complicate Katja’s painful mourning, opening wounds and doubts. Danilo, a lawyer and Nuri’s best friend, represents Katja in the eventual trial against the two suspects: a young couple from the neo-Nazi scene. The trial pushes Katja to the edge, but there’s simply no alternative for her: she wants justice.

Entertainment 11B Beacon, December 28, 2017‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’Genre: Drama and romance Cast: Annette Bening, Jamie Bell, Julie Walters and Vanessa Redgrave Director: Paul McGuigan Rated: R Based on Peter Turner’s memoir, the lm follows the playful but passionate relationship between Turner (Bell) and the eccentric Academy Award-winning actress Gloria Grahame (Bening) in 1978 Liverpool. What starts as a vibrant affair between a legendary femme fatale and her young lover quickly grows into a deeper relationship, with Turner being the person Gloria turns to for comfort. Their passion and lust for life is tested to the limits by events beyond their control. For more movie news, visit www. TBNweekly.com. Lee Clark Zumpe is TBN entertainment editor.

Rather than writing in isolation, we simulate a writer’s room: pitching sketches, slinging ideas back and forth, writing drafts, doing readthroughs, cuts and edits, and narrowing focus to perfect the top sketches. This class is part of our ProLab Series: unique elective opportunities for intermediate to advanced improvisers to explore a range of skills that hone improv technique and artistry. Sketch Comedy can still be taken as a one-off experience. We recommend, but do not require completion of Improv Level 2 (or equivalent experience). Sketch Comedy will culminate with a performance of an original sketch comedy show at our Student Improv Festival on March 25.
