By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Seminole City Center announced that Outback Steakhouse and Maple Street Biscuits have signed leases to move into the outdoor mall in a Jan. 3 post to its Facebook page. Jeff Preston, a managing partner at North American Development Group, the site's developers, initially told the Beacon in a Jan. 8 phone interview that the deal with Outback was "not 100 percent." But in an additional interview later that day, Preston said a lease has been signed with Outback. "I have not heard that the site plan and final design has been approved by the tenant and the city," he added. "I fully expect it to be done, but have not heard anything yet." In a Jan. 8 email, Mark Ely, the city's community development director, wrote, "Outback is still in concept review, no city approvals yet." He added that Outback will be located on the vacant lot next to Pollo Tropical. Elizabeth Watts, director of media and community relations for Bloomin' Brands, Inc., which owns Outback, declined to con rm that a lease had been signed with Seminole City Center. "What I can confirm is that we are interested in the area," she said. In a Jan. 8 email, Dale Johnson, director of development and construction for Primerica Group One, which is overseeing the site's redevelopment for NADG, wrote, "The Outback Steakhouse addition to Seminole City Center dining has been in the works for some time. We expect construction to commence very soon." Preston also said the deal bringing The Lucky Dill to the Seminole City Center is now up in the air. "There is no valid lease at this very moment," he said. City Manager Ann Toney-Deal announced that The Lucky Dill, along with several other retailers and restaurants, had signed a lease with the developers at the July 12, 2016 City Council meeting. Johnson wrote in a Jan. 8 email that though she hasn't seen a lease with The Lucky Dill yet, "I was told that construction would commence by March." Karen Wiewiura, a manager at The Lucky Dill's Palm Harbor location said By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Through its third annual Red Sled initiative, the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake raised more than $40,000 in toys and other gifts, gift cards and cash for foster children in the Tampa Bay area, said Gerry Cachia, one of the founders of the project. All funds and items collected are donated to Eckerd Youth Alternatives, a nonpro t agency that works with foster care children in Pinellas County. The club hosts a variety of events throughout the holiday season, working with a variety of businesses and organizations. Events included a pancake breakfast with the Gulf Beaches Rotary Club, an appearance by Santa riding the club's Red Sled in the city's Holiday Night Parade, and a Madeira Beach Pub Crawl. The Red Sled's signature event is The Red Party, which took place Dec. 8 at Chapen on the Hill's Evans Hall. The event featured local restaurants and businesses offering appetizers and other giveaways to attendees. The Sounds of Soul also performed. In a November interview, Cachia called the Red Party "Seminole's biggest holiday event." He said, "This thing is progressing by leaps and bounds. Without a doubt, this has become for Seminole Lake Rotary Club the event we do the most concentration on each year. For more information, visit www. seminolelakerotary.org.

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 20152016 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 first 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 See AROUND, page 4A 122817SBL 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 Â 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.

"We wanted to get somebody who isn't in Florida that often," Ritchie said. "Professional wrestling is very popular in Florida, and there's a lot of fantastic talent here and a lot of great organizations putting on wrestling shows. We try to bring in top-notch talent from all over the country, and sometimes all over the world, that way fans will be able to see people they're not able to see every week. I don't think there's a better metropolitan area for wrestling in the country." FTWP got its start in south Florida nearly two years ago. Since then, the company has booked shows around the state Orlando, Tampa, Palm Beach County. In March of 2017, Ritchie moved to Tampa from West Palm Beach, and he set his sights on booking more shows in the Tampa Bay area. "We found that people in Central Florida love wrestling, especially in Tampa Bay," he said. They booked a show in Tampa for September, but Hurricane Irma forced FTWP staff to cancel it. After the storm, he began scouting locations for future wrestling showcases and discovered the Seminole recreation center. "I was floored. It's a fantastic venue," he said. "For wrestling, it's really important to have the right space. If it's a constricted venue, and there's not enough space, then wrestlers are not able to put on the same level of performance as they can in a building like the Seminole recreation center. I don't care how high you can jump. You're not going to hit your head on that ceiling." Irma forcing them to cancel their September show "was a blessing in disguise," he added. As he hands out flyers around Seminole, he says residents seem excited about professional wrestling coming to their city. "It's fantastic how many fantastic conversations I've had with people," Ritchie said. "People talk to me about their favorite memories growing up with the sport." He stressed that Fight Club: Reloaded is for all ages. "It's a good, family-friendly affordable show on a Saturday night," he said. "Everyone from a 5-year-old kid to grandpa is going to have a good time at the show." For more information, visit www. fullthrottleprowrestling.com.

5A Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018 011118-SEB
6A County Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018Experts say gas prices will trend higher in 2018 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersHouseholds planning budgets for 2018 likely should add a bit more money to the fuel category. Experts are predicting that Americans will pay the highest gas prices since 2014. The upward trend actually began in 2017, with the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded at $2.39. The average in 2016 was $2.12, according to AAA's analysts. Motorists paid slightly more in 2015 with the national average coming in at $2.40, and they paid a lot more in 2014 when the average price was $3.34 a gallon. The federal Energy Information Administration predicts that gas prices will average $2.51 in 2018, 12 cents more than the average in 2017, partially due to higher crude oil prices. EIA reports that 2017 ended with crude oil prices at $60 to $65 a barrel the highest prices since 2013. The agency says oil prices are expected to average $52.77 in 2018, almost $2 more than last year. Gas Buddy released its 2018 fuel outlook Jan. 3. The report's authors predict that gas prices will average $2.57 this year. On Jan. 3, the national average was $2.49 a gallon, 13 cents more than the same date last year. The state average was $2.45 a gallon, which is 3 cents more than 2016. Motorists in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metro area were paying an average of $2.42 cents, about 1 cent more than last year. U.S. gasoline spending is expected to reach $364.6 billion this year, compared to $339.2 billion in 2017 and $302.5 billion in 2016, according to Gas Buddy's report. The average cost per household is expected to be $1,899, which is $133 more than last year. The highest pump prices, $2.70 and $2.73, coming in April and May, respectively, coincide with the time that re neries stop production of winter blend gasoline and go through an annual maintenance period that occurs before they begin production of the more expensive summer blend. EPA regulations require production and sale of summer blend gasoline from June 1-Sept. 15 in an effort to reduce smog and pollution during the peak driving season. The transition from the winter blend to the summer blend can increase gas prices from 25 cents to 75 cents a gallon, according to Gas Buddy's experts. Other in uences on gas prices include unscheduled problems at re neries and the weather, as was evidenced by the hurricanes of 2017, which greatly affected production and consequently gasoline supplies and prices, especially in Texas and Florida. Additional factors that affect gas prices include the strength of global economies; the relative value of major currencies; supply and demand of oil and gasoline; pipeline logistics; state and local taxes; and politics, Gas Buddy points out in its report. Mark Jenkins, spokesman for AAA, said prices are now relatively stable across the southeastern U.S., and January pump prices are expected to go down soon. They will likely be among the lowest of the year with the national average forecast to be $2.41 a gallon. "Gas prices normally decline during January and February, as gasoline demand hits the lowest levels of the year," Jenkins said. "The pump-price plunge has faced resistance from oil prices which have been trading at two-year highs. Oil analysts believe the oil market is somewhat in ated due to geopolitical tensions and supply concerns, but prices should decline soon."The EIA says decisions to curtail production by members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, more commonly referred to as OPEC, have had a profound effect on crude oil prices even though the crude oil production in the United States has remained relatively high. U.S. product supplied for crude oil and petroleum products last year was the highest level since 2007. "The OPEC agreement to curtail crude oil production in 2017 and subsequent extension of that agreement through 2018 tightened oil supplies, which put upward pressure on crude oil prices," the EIA says. But gas prices aren't expected to reach levels that will stop motorists from traveling for work and pleasure. And despite increasing demand, none of the experts expects that this year's prices will eclipse the record set in 2008 when the national average reached $4.11 in July. Still, there are a lot of factors that can't be controlled. Remember hurricanes Harvey and Irma? "Motorists probably won't be getting pumped up to pay more at the pump this year, but should find some solace in knowing we won't come anywhere near record prices this year while most of the country will continue to see plenty of prices in the $2 per gallon range," said Patrick DeHaan, Gas Buddy's head of petroleum analysis. Florida's gas prices averaged $2.44 a gallon Jan. 1, 3 cents more than the same date last year. As of Jan. 7, the state average was $2.45. Motorists in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metro Area $2.41, about the same as the day before and almost 1 cent less than last week. According to Gasbuddy.com's price nder, on Jan. 7 motorists in Pinellas County were paying between $2.39 and $2.31 with the cheapest price available at a station in Pinellas Park.Photo by TERRE PORTERMotorists ll up Sunday afternoon at a Shell station in Largo. County newsTax Collectors Of ce gears up for driver license renewalsAccording to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, one in six Pinellas County drivers will renew their driver license in 2018. That's an estimated 125,630 license renewals, a 38 percent increase over 2017. This number doesn't include new drivers, people who move to Pinellas County or residents who don't drive and need to obtain a Florida ID card. To avoid long waits, drivers are encouraged to renew online at www.taxcollect.com. If you move, you can also change your address online. There's one catch: before you renew online, make sure your license is REAL ID compliant. If your license has a yellow star icon or a star inside a circle, your license is REAL ID compliant. Under federal law, all U.S. adults will need a REAL ID driver license or other acceptable form of identification, such as a U.S. passport, to board commercial domestic ights beginning Oct. 1, 2020. Non-REAL ID licenses will continue to be valid for driving purposes until they expire. Florida's online driver license renewal system allows people to renew non-REAL IDs online. Pinellas County Tax Collector Charles W. Thomas encourages drivers to check their license before deciding how to renew. "If your license is already a REAL ID, we advise you to renew online. However, if your license is not a REAL ID, you cannot upgrade to a REAL ID online," said Thomas. "The only way to obtain your rst REAL ID is by renewing in person." If you must renew your license in person, you can make an appointment online at www. taxcollect.com. Wait times are typically shortest between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. Of ces are busiest the day before and the day after federal holiday. For more information, visit www.taxcollect.com. One more thing for drivers who renew their license in 2018: Florida recently changed its driver license design with a new look and increased fraud protection. Drivers who renew online or in person in 2018 will both receive the new license design.Registration opens for 12th annual ValentineÂ’s group weddingKen Burke, Pinellas County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller, announced that registration is now open for the 12th annual Valentine's Day Group Wedding. Up to 50 couples are expected to be joined together for one group wedding ceremony on Valentine's Day, Wednesday, Feb. 14 in the Wedding Garden of the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo. "Our Valentine's Day Group Wedding event continues to be a very popular option for couples interested in celebrating the most romantic day of the year," said Burke. The Clerk's of ce is showcasing the special event complete with an eye-catching window display at the downtown Clearwater Courthouse.

A single ceremony will unite all couples in attendance. Everyone will be serenaded with a cappella melodies performed by the Charmonizers Barbershop Quartet. In addition, the couples will be treated to beautiful melodies performed by Deputy Clerks Tiffany Clayton and James Beaty.

7A Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018 011118S
8A County Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018Juvenile arrests drop to historic 42-year low statewide By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersGov. Rick Scott announced some good news toward the end of 2017. Juvenile arrests statewide have dropped to the lowest point in 42 years. According to a recent delinquency report from the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice, arrests dropped 7 percent in the last scal year and 25 percent in the last ve years. "Our state has made signi cant strides in reforming our juvenile justice system and I am proud to announce today that juvenile arrests have dropped to a historic 42-year low," Scott said in a Dec. 28 press release. Scott highlighted ve of the state's counties with the largest populations, including Orange County, which had a 15 percent decrease in juvenile arrests. Hillsborough County came in next with a 14 percent reduction, followed by Broward and Miami-Dade counties with a 7 percent decrease. Juvenile intake arrests were down 5 percent in Pinellas for scal year 2016-2017, according to the report. Arrests totaled 4,133, down from 4,356 in FY 2015-2016. And, compared to FY 2012-2013, arrests were down 12 percent in Pinellas with 4,691 juveniles being arrested that year.By the numbersA breakdown of the numbers for Pinellas County shows that juvenile males run afoul of the law more than females with 3,320 males arrested last year compared to 813 females. In FY 2015-2016, 3,528 males were arrested and 828 females, and in FY 2012-2013, 3,652 males were arrested and 1,039 females. The majority of those arrested were black 62 percent in scal years 2016-2017 and 2015-2016, and 52 percent in FY 2012-2013. Thirty percent arrested in 2016-2017 were white, 39 percent in 2015-2016 and 41 percent in 2012-2013. Less than 10 percent were Hispanic juveniles. Juveniles age 17 and older made up about 24 percent of arrests in all three scal years. Most of the arrests were juveniles ages 15-16. In FY 2016-2017 48 percent were ages 15-16, 50 percent in FY 2015-2016 and 46 percent in FY 2012-2013. Juveniles ages 13-14 made up 24 percent of arrests in FY 2016-2017, 22 percent in FY 2015-2016 and 24 percent in FY 2012-2013. Arrests of ages 5-12 accounted for less than 10 percent. In FY 2016-2017 and FY 2015-2016, most of the offenses committed by juveniles in Pinellas were felonies 47 percent compared to only 35 percent in FY 2012-2013. In FY 2016-2017, 27 percent of offenses were misdemeanors; 35 percent in FY 2015-2016; and 44 percent in FY 20122013. The remainder of the arrests was classi ed as "other." The top three felonies were burglary, aggravated assault/battery and auto theft. More burglaries were committed in FY 2016-2017, 735, compared to 706 in FY 2015-2016 and 588 in FY 2012-2013. Last scal year, 250 juveniles were arrested for aggravated assault/battery, down from 282 in FY 2015-2016 and 314 in FY 2012-2013. Local law enforcement has been battling a big problem with auto theft among juveniles, which in some cases had led to tragic endings. Three teens died in October 2017 in a stolen car that crashed in Palm Harbor. In March 2016, three teenage girls drowned when they crashed a stolen car in a pond in St. Petersburg. Of cials have been working on solutions and that work is ongoing. The good news is that the numbers are going down. Last year, only 350 juveniles were arrested for auto theft, down from 418 in FY 2015-2016. Still 350 is still a big number compared to only 130 arrested for the same crime in FY 20122013. Of those arrested for auto theft last year, 14 percent were females and 86 percent were males about the same as prior years. Statewide, the DJJ's report shows a 4 percent drop year-to-year statewide in auto theft arrests, including a 19 percent year-to-year decrease in auto theft arrests in the Central Florida region. DJJ Secretary Christina Daly said, "More than six years ago, DJJ committed to improve Florida's juvenile justice system through innovative and aggressive reforms. The continued decline in juvenile arrests year after year demonstrates our reform efforts are working. We will continue to work with law enforcement and our community partners to keep even more kids out of the juvenile justice system, provide the very best services for those that do come into our system, and work hard to help steer every youth down the right path."

10A County Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018PinellasÂ’ November unemployment rate at 3.4 percent By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersPinellas County's not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November was 3.4 percent, up from 3.1 percent reported in October, according to the state Department of Economic Opportunity.

The state had an unemployment rate of 3.8 percent, up from 3.6 percent reported in October but down considerably from the 4.8 percent for the same month last year. The national rate was 3.9 percent, the same as it was in October and down from 4.4 percent reported in November 2016. The county's labor force declined from 496,554 in October to 494,516 in November. In November, 16,669 were unemployed compared to 15,367 in October and 20,921 in November 2016. The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area followed the trend with the unemployment rate in November up to 3.6 percent compared to October at 3.3 percent, however, unemployment declined from November 2016 with a reported rate of 4.6 percent. The local MSA held on to the No. 2 spot for job creation. In November, 22 out of 24 metro areas reported over-the-year job gains. Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford had the biggest gain, adding 38,800 jobs, followed by Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater with 30,600 and Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall with 27,100 new jobs. The two metro areas that lost jobs were Cape Coral-Ft. Myers with a loss of 300 jobs and Homosassa Springs down 100 jobs over the year. The local area continued to hold its No. 1 position for demand in highskill, high-wage STEM occupations with 14,839 openings in November, and it was rst in job demand with 44,792 openings. "It is clear that Tampa Bay continues to be a great place for businesses to grow and create jobs," Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release.

Here and There Here we are a few days into 2018 and we're all working diligently to stay true to the vows we made moving into the New Year.Many of us began the year promising to improve our well-being by eating healthier foods, avoiding stressful situations and getting more exercise. These are all good New Year's resolutions ... but the beginning of a new year also happens to be the perfect time to resolve to improve your financial fitness. Elizabeth (Liza) Campa-Flanagan, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER with Raymond James Financial Services Inc., offers a few financial exercises that can help set you on the course to fiscal health. "With 2018 underway, instead of rushing to what's next', it's a good time to pause and reflect on 2017 to better understand any existing constraints, strengths, and weaknesses before making plans for the year ahead," Liza says. "2017 can best be described as a year of synchronized global growth among the world's major economies." This was evident by soaring equity markets in Europe, Asia, and the United States. In the World Economic Outlook report published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the global growth forecast for 2017 was estimated at 3.6%, while 2018 is forecast at 3.7%. This is an acceleration from 3.2% recorded for 2016. The IMF said the pickup in activity that started in the second half of 2016 "gained further momentum" in the first six months of 2017. "The global upswing in economic activity is strengthening," the IMF said in its executive summary (IMF World Economic Outlook, October 2017). According to Jeffrey Saut, Raymond James Chief Investment Strategist, the United States is in the midst of a secular bull market with years left to run. This is not to say that he does not expect downturns, instead he believes pullbacks are likely to be muted, normal in nature, and treated as buying opportunities. Steps to Fiscal Fitness Ready to go over your new financial fitness regimen? Like all good exercise programs, begin with a warm-up session. Get your balance sheet in order Review your budget and spending habits Revisit your portfolio's asset allocation Set up a regular review schedule with your advisor Make appropriate changes or adjustments Once you have the groundwork out of the way, move on to some of the more advanced exercises: Review the titling of your accounts Account titling often occurs haphazardly an individual opens an account, meets Mr. or Miss Right, then decides to live together or get married and down the line there's a problem. If one partner dies and that account is still titled only in the original holder's name, those assets can't be accessed readily by the survivor. The solution may be as straight forward as changing to joint accounts, but it's not always that simple. Designate and update your beneficiaries If you don't correctly document and update your beneficiary designations, who gets what may be determined not according to your wishes, but by federal or state law, or by the default plan document used in your retirement accounts. You should update your beneficiaries on anything that affects your heirs (wills, life insurance, annuities, IRAs, 401(k)s or qualified plans). Retirees: Evaluate your sources of retirement income Many retirees have several sources of income such as Social Security, pensions, retirement portfolios, rental properties, notes receivable, inheritances, etc. Think about how secure each source is. Know which income sources are reliable and which are less certain, and how much of your total income each category represents. If too much of your retirement income is from sources you consider less than solid, it may be time to reposition your assets. Pre-Retirees: Review your Social Security statement If you're not yet retired, you may wish to go online and establish an account with the Social Security Administration the SSA no longer sends individual statements of accrued benefits in the mail. Review your statement, and be sure all your earnings over the years have been recorded. Use the SSA's online calculator to compute your benefits at various retirement ages. Review the tax efficiency of your charitable giving If appropriate for your situation, think strategically about your contributions donate low-cost-basis stocks rather than cash, for example. Or, consider establishing a donor advised fund, which enables you to take an upfront deduction for contributions made over the next several years and potentially provides other benefits. Evaluate your cash holdings Everyone should have a certain amount of easily accessible assets six or more months of living expenses is a common rule of thumb set aside in cash accounts that can be accessed quickly and easily. Think about where your cash reserves are located, bearing in mind that only member banks of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. can offer FDIC insurance, and only up to a maximum of $250,000 per account. Stick with it Since we all know that resolutions tend not to survive very long, add one more resolution to the list: Resolve to really follow through this year. Moving into 2018 As you begin improving your fiscal health for 2018, Liza discusses some considerations that may affect your planning. Social Security the Social Security Administration has announced a cost of living adjustment (COLA) to recipients' monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. More than 66 million Americans will see the 2% increase in their payments beginning in January of 2018. The increase is tied to the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers and was put in place to ensure the purchasing power of these benefits isn't eroded by inflation. The increase is the largest since the 3.6% hike in 2012 (AARP). Retirement Contributions for both the 2017and 2018 tax years, individual investors can contribute up to $5,500 to either a traditional or Roth IRA. If you're over 50, you can contribute an extra $1,000. This is a reminder to help you take full advantage of your ability to save toward retirement. Contributing as much as you can as early as possible allows those assets more time to grow and compound. Keep in mind that IRA contributions generally must be made before you file your tax return in April. For 2018, you may contribute up to $18,500 (an increase from 2017's $18,000 limit) to applicable 401(k), 403(b) and 457 plans; as well as the federal government's Thrift Savings Plan. The catch-up contribution limit for individuals age 50 or older remains at $6,000.

Even though listing inventory shrunk by 4 percent in 2017, demand remained high, which helped to bolster real estate values throughout Tampa Bay. Bob Glaser, president and CEO of Smith & Associates Real Estate, said 2017 was a healthy year for the Tampa Bay real estate market, despite low inventory. "We are bullish on the Tampa Bay real estate market in 2018 and beyond," Glaser said in a press release. "Florida's population continues to grow, and there are no signs of it slowing down in the next few years. I still believe there are great values to be found because we are lagging behind other coastal areas." Pinellas County saw the most signi cant decline in listings.

14A Community Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018 NotebookGrant improves access to STEM degrees by minority students in Tampa Bay A new "bridge" is coming to Tampa Bay. However, instead of carrying harried commuters back and forth, this bridge will help underrepresented minority students move into high-demand baccalaureate programs in STEM. The Tampa Bay Bridge to the Baccalaureate (TB-B2B), a partnership between St. Petersburg College, Hillsborough Community College and State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, has been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation, under its Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation program, to increase the number of minority students transferring into a STEM program at the University of South Florida. The three colleges typically see more than 400 of their minority students transfer into STEM programs at a four-year university every year. The partnering institutions will aim to boost that number by 50 percent over the three-year grant period. "We are so honored to be a part of this partnership, which will give underrepresented, minority students opportunities to pursue baccalaureate degrees in STEM elds leading to high-wage jobs that can help end generational cycles of poverty," said Dr. Tonjua Williams, SPC president. "We are grateful to the National Science Foundation and our educational partners for their commitment to equity and diversity in STEM elds a commitment that is crucial to meeting the ever-evolving needs of the 21st century workforce." A cohesive system of new activities, peer and faculty connections and academic supports will help the TB-B2B partner schools move the needle for STEM minority student engagement. The grant also will leverage existing connections through USF's FUSE initiative, a guaranteed admissions program for students who complete their associate degree at a participating Florida College System institution. "By preparing and retaining an underutilized talent pool for STEM careers, the LSAMP TB-B2B will have a signi cant impact on our local, state, and national workforce," said Bernard Batson, director of diversity and inclusion programs at the USF College of Engineering. "We look forward to partnering with the program leaders and faculty on new efforts that will increase access and broaden participation of underserved students in STEM." SPC will serve as the lead of TB-B2B. Faculty and administrators from each of the partner institutions will work collaboratively with local school districts, STEM industry representatives and other educational institutions to ensure underrepresented minority students have the support, engagement and sense of "self" necessary to successfully pursue and complete a baccalaureate education in STEM. "This Bridge to the Baccalaureate grant exemplifies the great partnerships that exist among our educational institutions in the Tampa Bay area," said Dr. Jesse Coraggio, vice president, institutional effectiveness and academic services at SPC. "With this grant opportunity from the National Science Foundation, we can open doors and provide opportunity for underserved students by building line-of-sight pathways to baccalaureate STEM programs at our local state colleges and the University of South Florida System schools." TB-B2B students will engage in undergraduate research and hands-on experiential learning opportunities, increasing their research knowledge base and exploration of STEM interests and careers. A four-year STEM degree leads to higher wages, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. STEM workers earn about 30 percent more than their nonSTEM counterparts do. "The Tampa Bay Bridge to the Baccalaureate Alliance positions HCC and its partners to expand and enhance our efforts to recruit, retain, and graduate more students from underrepresented minorities with STEM degrees," said James Wysong, dean of mathematics and sciences at HCC. "A diverse scienti c and technical workforce is critical to America's future, and this alliance supports that goal." "We are delighted that the National Science Foundation has funded this Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation consortium grant. In our region and throughout the state, there is a critical need for a well-educated workforce with degrees in a STEM eld," said SCF President Dr. Carol Probstfeld. "In collaboration with our alliance partners, St. Petersburg College and Hillsborough Community College, this grant will help SCF to signi cantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students that are pursuing a STEM bachelor's degree." Tampa Bay is fast becoming the epicenter of STEM industry and innovation within the state, and currently ranks as Florida's leading technology hub, according to the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation. Enterprise Florida estimates that 15 out of the 20 fastest growing job elds will require a STEM education, and projects the need for 120,000 new STEM workers by 2018 alone.Open car and truck show bene ts scholarship programPINELLAS PARK An open car and truck show is scheduled for Sunday Jan. 21, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at Wagon Wheel Flea Market, 7801 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park.

PETERSBURG The Kosher Pickle Factory and Rabbi Pickle also known as Mendy Margolin will present a program on making kosher pickles on Monday, Jan. 22, 7 p.m., at Chabad Jewish Center of Greater St. Petersburg, 4010 Park St. N., St. Petersburg. "Kosher pickle making is one the most creative educational programs I've seen lately," said Rabbi Alter Korf of Chabad of St. Petersburg in a press release. "Kosher is so much a part of our lives, but how much do we know about it?" Learning how to make the authentic Kosher Pickle, while discovering the pickle's amazing history, is sure to excite the taste buds of any pickle lover. So, what does make a pickle kosher? This and many other questions will be answered during the presentation. "People will have the chance to personalize their own pickles," said Korf. "The program is going to answer a lot of questions people have about kosher and of course, pickles. And they will de nitely have a lot of laughs." According to program organizers the event is open to the public and they claim you'll never look at a pickle the same way again. Since inception, the Kosher Pickle factory brought the love of Kosher pickle making and the joy of Kosher to thousands of participants in the United States of America, Canada and Australia. The fee is $15 for the event which includes one jar of pickles. To RSVP or for more information, visit www.

PETERSBURG Chabad of St. Petersburg will present guest speaker Rena Finder on Monday, Feb. 12, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Finder was only 10 years old when the Nazis invaded Poland. Her father was killed at Auschwitz. She and her mother were sent to work at Emalia, Oskar Schindler's enamel and ammunition factory. "It's so special and important to hear a Holocaust survivor's story rsthand. The holocaust becomes more real when they share their stories, especially with the younger generation," said Rabbi Alter Korf, director of the Chabad Jewish Center of Greater St. Petersburg. And he said Finder's story is especially unique. Finder was born in 1929 in Krakow, Poland, to a well-to-do family. An only child, she lived with her parents in a brand-new apartment next to Wawel Royal Castle. A good student in school, Finder often was chosen for parts in the school's play. On Sundays, her father would take her to soccer games, or her aunt and uncle would take her to see children's plays or movies. In September 1939, everything changed. Forced to leave their home, the family moved into the ghetto. There her father was arrested and later killed at the death camp Auschwitz. Finder and her mother worked in a printing shop in the ghetto and one day, Finder and her mother were put on a list to work in Schindler's factory. "It was like going from hell to heaven," she said. "I expected [Schindler] to grow wings. He treated us like human beings." "You didn't have to dread every day you were going to be killed because you knew Oskar Schindler was there, and he was going to protect you," Finder said. Finder's riveting firsthand account of life as a Schindler child is a story of strength, courage, and determination. Early bird tickets are $12 through Jan. 25. Tickets after Jan. 25 are $18.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018WASHINGTON As a candidate for president, Donald Trump assured voters that, if elected, he would hire "the best people." It was a claim that suggested Trump didn't need years of Washington experience because, well, as Trump boasted in "The Art of the Deal," "my philosophy is always to hire the best from the best." A shrewd eye for top talent? That's not the view from Washington. The fallout from the release of Michael Wolff's new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," with its devastating quotes about Trump and family unloaded by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, reveal how overrated Trump's instincts have been when it comes to choosing the best people for the job. Bannon had told Wolff he saw a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., former campaign manager Paul Manafort and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous." Thus, a once trusted lieutenant breathed new life into the Russian collusion story just as it was losing steam. The White House has cited inaccuracies in the book. For example, there's an account of Trump not knowing who former House Speaker John Boehner was when the late Fox News giant Roger Ailes recommended that Trump hire Boehner as his chief of staff. In fact, Trump mentioned Boehner repeatedly before then. Also, Wolff himself acknowledges that at times he chose which con icting version of events to report. And Wolff did not enhance his credibility when he told the "Today" show, "I certainly said what was ever necessary to get the story." Thing is, you don't have to see Wolff's words as gospel for example, you don't have to believe Trump initially wanted to name Bannon or his son-in-law to be his chief of staff to see how awed Trump's judgment has been when it came to staf ng the West Wing and his campaign. Don't take Wolff's word for it. Listen to Trump. Wednesday the White House released a statement in which Trump savaged Bannon. "Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well," read the statement. On Friday, Trump gave his former chief strategist a new Twitter nickname, "Sloppy Steve." Trump also made the mistake of hiring Manafort to run his campaign, despite Manafort's known ties to Moscow. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office has charged Manafort with multiple felony counts. Manafort says he is not guilty. When Trump is unhappy with a member of his team, he lets everyone know. Trump has berated Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian probe. Just last month, Trump complained to The New York Times that Sessions was less loyal to him than former Attorney General Eric Holder had been to President Barack Obama. Trump undercut his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson when he tweeted that Tillerson was "wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man," aka North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. After Trump red FBI chief James Comey in May, Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that Trump acted on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. "It was all him," Spicer said. "No one from the White House. That was a DOJ decision." Two days later, Trump told NBC's Lester Holt, "I was going to re Comey" no matter what Justice of cials recommended. While Trump's demand for loyalty from White House staff is legendary, it is not returned. In one interview, Trump had turned his own spokesman into a liar, if an unwitting one. In Washington, credibility is a currency and Trump snatched it from an aide for no apparent gain. Add Mueller to the mix, and former staffers have added reason to counterpunch the counterpunching president. Max Bergmann of the left-leaning Center for American Progress opined that with the Russia probe staring down at Trump, Trump Jr., Kushner and Manafort, "This is Bannon seeing the avalanche coming and running for the exits." Or maybe working for Trump doesn't bring out the best in a person if you actually hire the best person. "What can it be like to work for Donald Trump?" University of Virginia Miller Center researcher Ken Hughes asked. "You have to let off steam." Contact Debra J. Saunders at email@example.com or 202662-7391.

This city, the counties and the state of Florida have zoning rules for a very good reason. If a developer presents a project that meets the zoning rules of Seminole, I do believe all seven council members would have voted for the 65 units that were allowed on that project. I also believe the zoning board and the community development director would also have recommended that this project be allowed to proceed. If it was presented as a 65-unit affordable housing project meeting our zoning regulations. The city of Seminole does have affordable senior housing. It is called Seminole Garden Apartments. It is a co-op community. It is a 55-acre property, 30 buildings, 740 apartments, 28 of the 30 buildings are required to be at least 55 years of age. It is in a non-evacuate zone, it is not in a ood zone. You can buy a unit for less than the cost of a mobile home in a land-owned park, and you don't have to evacuate. I believe the city staff, the city manager and the city council have up until now served the residents of the city of Seminole, and we will continue to do so, as elected of cials, as long as residents want us to continue. Jim Quinn Councilor, city of Seminole Have you heard about collusion lately? Of course you have. The air, the news, the conversation at the laundromat are all lled with chatter about collusion. As far as I can tell it involves Russia, the 2016 presidential election, secret meetings at Trump Tower and what was said and done (or NOT said and done) by dozens of possible collusionists. To my surprise, I've learned that very few persons of my acquaintance actually know what collusion is. I approached several of them recently and said to them "Please de ne collusion." Their answers follow: "Collusion is when two motorists smash into one another on Tyrone Boulevard or the Howard Frankland raceway." (Fact: that's collision.) "Collusion is a region of skin or esh where capillaries are broken and discoloration may result." (Fact: that's contusion.) "Collusion is when you try to gure out what Bob Driver is writing about this week." (Fact: That's confusion.) "Collusion is the passage of fluid (usually blood) through the circulatory or lymphatic system to an organ or a tissue." (Fact: That's perfusion.) "Collusion is when a political candidate promises to drain the swamp and make America great again within six weeks after his/her election." (Fact: that's illusion.) And so on. None of my interviewees came close to giving the dictionary definition of collusion, which is (short form) "Secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose." Now that we have pinned down the meaning of collusion, other questions remain. Such as: Exactly when does collusion occur? If two people collude but only one of them is the chief planner, is he/she referred to as the colluder or the colludee? A common example of collusion may occur when two men Joe and Harry join forces to hustle a lovely lady named Marie. Joe wants to win Marie's affection, so he asks Harry to tell Marie dozens of complimentary things (all of them lies) about Joe. Marie is fooled into believing the falsehoods, and soon falls for Joe. And later regrets it. Doesn't this fit the official definition of collusion? It's a secret agreement in which Joe and Harry agree to deceive Marie, right? So lock em up, dad blame it! I imagine collusion takes place on Wall Street thousands of times each week. Let's say the Snake Oil Company wants to buy its biggest rival, Jigger Lotion. So Snake Oil quietly contacts speculators who own several million shares of Jigger. At an agreed-upon moment on a quiet Wednesday, Snake Oil tells its secret collaborators, "Sell Jigger! Unload every share!" Wall Street goes crazy. Jigger Lotion's stock goes through the oor, and Snake Oil swoops in to take control of Jigger. Is that collusion? Sounds like it to me. Is it illegal? Probably. But maybe not. It could be conspiracy instead. If you'd like to wrap your brain around a confusing question, try researching the differences between collusion and conspiracy. It might help if you already have a law degree. That will get you through the next year or two, which is how long it may take for special investigator Robert Mueller to complete his search for evidence of collusion (or conspiracy) between Russia and the Trump team. I recently watched a TV re-run of the Watergate scandal in the 1970s. I love to see a replay of that story. In beautiful detail, it told how a hate- lled scoundrel and his associates were pursued and then defeated in their attempt to use the U.S. Constitution as their personal toilet. That triumphant process took most of two years to complete. Is a similar tale being spun in our nation's capital today? Will it take two years or more to nish? Stay tuned. And don't bet your grocery money on the nal outcome. The playing elds of collusion are slippery indeed. Bob DriverÂ’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.netInk in his blood Â– now and foreverOn a chilly evening in early January 1978 I stood along a boardwalk in Vero Beach, watching the waves break and wondering if I would nd an affordable place to live. Three days after starting my first job as a professional journalist at the Vero Beach Press Journal, I realized I'd have to tighten my belt and get a roommate if I expected to make ends meet. That's just the way it was. My parents gave me a suitcase as a college graduation present a not-so-subtle hint of what they expected me to do. In other words, leave the nest. I still have that suitcase, which is lled with newspapers and clippings of stories that I've written. Hard to cram 40 years of anything into a piece of luggage, especially memories. I opened the suitcase a few nights ago. Reading the papers, I wished I had spent more time on this story or that story. Some needed stronger verbs, shorter sentences, better quotes. Regrets? Sure. But overall, I'm humbled and thankful to be still doing what I think I was put on earth to do. Many journalists have lost their jobs in recent years because of economic woes in this profession. Some left for jobs in other industries; others were laid off. Opportunities are fewer for journalists these days, especially at newspapers. I remember sitting at a press table covering a county commission meeting in the small community of Vero Beach along with reporters from two radio stations, Cocoa Today, the Palm Beach Post, the Miami Herald and even a television station. Competition was erce and it remained so in the 1980s as I worked at other small newspapers, such as the Winter Haven News-Chief. On May 8, 1981, a News-Chief editor told me at 7:30 a.m. to go to Winter Park and get comments from local residents about a 75-feet deep sinkhole that developed 60 miles away from our of ce, way out of our circulation area. "Be back by noon," he said. I made it back to Winter Haven just in time to bang out the story, which was short and sketchy. Guess the editor was happy. He was often gruff and stingy with compliments. Nevertheless, I thought my time would have been better spent covering a local government meeting or reporting on something in our backyard that our competitors didn't consider news. The wire services and the larger dailies were better staffed and equipped to cover the regional stories than we were. Conversely, my favorite story I wrote at the News-Chief involved the sleepy town of Davenport's police chief, who charged into the city council chambers during a council meeting. "Somebody just stole my g-dd--police car," he said. The perpetrator actually gave a ticket to a motorist, who went to the police station that evening to pay it. A clerk notified the police chief, who, after the prankster was arrested, announced that there was a new policy in effect immediately at the police department: "Police of cers are not allowed to leave their keys in their unattended vehicles." I practically had to beg my editor to run the story on the front page, telling him that no other reporter was at the meeting. Though he argued that there was little room on the front page that afternoon because of the coverage of the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, he nally relented and put my piece on Page 1. I was ecstatic when AP picked up the story. Right time, right place. Sometimes the best stories just fall in your lap. Other thoughts from the past 40 years and lessons learned: Relationships with sources are priceless. I'll never forget in the 1980s what a Kissimmee city manager, who was under re from local gad ies, told me: "Dissension is healthy in a free society." Those words to me are still golden. The best officials readily embrace that concept, recognizing that even the most vociferous critics of government have a right to be heard. Thinskinned officials' whining about the press or their critics only raises suspicion at all levels of government. On the positive side, in recent decades I think local governments have developed a better understanding of the role of the press and do a better job of disseminating written information than when I first got in the business. I remember that I often had to call an of cial just to get the square footage of the building or the cost of a new ambulance. Geez. Technology changes in our industry, as I recently lampooned in jest, have been mindboggling. The Internet. Better design programs. Faster word processors and production equipment. More ef cient tape recorders. I love being able to record a conversation over the phone. Perhaps the biggest change pertaining to tools for journalist has been the advent of digital photography, saving newspapers millions of dollars in the cost of buying and processing lm. Digital cameras are easy to operate. Can't remember the last time I used my twin-lens re ex camera, which now rests behind me on my office credenza. Same goes for the 1940s Underwood typewriter that I slaved over in college. I'm often approached by parents seeking advice for their kids who want to be journalists. I don't think students should put too much weight solely on teachers telling them that they can write in deciding whether to pursue such a career. The profession also requires a solid work ethic, determination and the willingness to adapt to continuous changes in our industry. "A newspaper is a train wreck waiting to happen." Those words came from a longtime journalist, a friend. Yes, we make mistakes. Deadlines often are to blame as well as lapses in judgment. Made some whoppers myself. Our credibility requires that we acknowledge our mistakes. For the most part, I think trained journalists strive for accuracy and fairness, at least those in the mainstream media, whether they are conservative or liberal in their personal beliefs. Opinions are best left on the editorial pages, such as this one. How long will newspapers survive? Won't hazard a guess. All I know is that at Tampa Bay Newspapers, we continue to increase our circulation and now also publish papers in Pasco County. We hear from readers when they don't get their papers. That's reassuring. I know as long as there are papers to read, I'll read them. I'd rather turn pages than scroll on a screen, especially at at my breakfast table. For what I've learned, I owe a great debt to many editors and other newspaper types, especially my colleagues at TBN and all my former co-workers. I'm fortunate to be a son of a former Orlando Sentinel reporter, my stepmother Ginny Germond, and a longtime Tampa Tribune bureau chief, Garth Germond, who died in 1992. When I was attending community college, dad introduced me to his staff: "This is my son, Tom. God help him; he wants to be a journalist." Have given it all I got, dad, and still enjoy it. It's great to have ink in my blood. And ink in a suitcase, too, as long as I'm alive. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Below are common reasons veterinary professionals hear as to why dental cleanings under anesthesia are not performed on pets in dire need of care: Anesthesia Heart murmurs Too old Cost Still eating so teeth not causing a problem (not painful) Not an important health issue, if they are bad they will just fall out on their own Anesthesia is so much safer today than it used to be. Many of the drugs used today are short acting and so pets go under quickly and wake up quickly. Pets are also monitored better today than in the past. Blood pressure, heart rhythms (EKG), end tidal CO2 (carbon dioxide monitors), oxygen saturation and temperatures are monitored throughout the dental procedure in the best veterinary hospitals. Pets should be on IV uids during anesthetic procedures because this helps keep pets hydrated, perfuses the organs, and allows the veterinary team to maintain proper blood pressures. Anesthesia is needed for a proper assessment of a pet's oral cavity. Many animals will not let you look at every single tooth on an awake physical exam. Therefore, many issues found in a pet's oral cavity are found after a thorough examination is done under anesthesia. Not only can the teeth be a problem, but pets also get tumors in the oral cavity and many of these are found when teeth are cleaned under anesthesia. Dental cleanings under anesthesia should include full mouth X-rays. This is now considered standard practice. There are so many issues that veterinary professionals cannot see just by looking in a pet's mouth. It is what is found under the gum line in dental X-rays that can reveal a tooth root abscess that couldn't be seen by the awake or anesthetized oral exam. It is very important that a pet is deemed a good candidate for anesthesia by doing pre-anesthetic work ups. This would include blood work to make sure a pet's organ status is appropriate and can metabolize the anesthetic drugs appropriately. Any other diagnostics that need to be done prior to anesthesia like chest x-rays or cardiac ultrasounds are commonly recommended for those pets that have heart murmurs or may have pre-existing issues. Cats can be a little tricky because they can have heart problems while not having a heart murmur or showing clinical signs. A blood test called "ProBnP" may help determine if a cat or dog has a heart issue prior to anesthesia. This test will pick up enzymes of stretched cardiac muscle. If this blood test is abnormal then other diagnostics can be done to be sure a pet can tolerate anesthesia. Just because a pet has a heart murmur does not mean they cannot have their teeth cared for. There are anesthetic drugs today that are safe for cardiac patients. The luxury that veterinary professionals have is that they can tailor their anesthetic protocols for each individual patient depending on their anesthetic risk class and diseases. Many dogs and cats with cardiac disease have gone under anesthesia and have done great. Pets with heart murmurs can't go under anesthesia is a misnomer that is not true. If the right work up is done, the pet is a good candidate, the right anesthetic drugs are used, and your pet is monitored thoroughly a cardiac patient can do well with anesthesia. Another misnomer is that a pet is too old to have anesthesia. Age is not a disease. Just because a pet is old does not mean it does not deserve the care it needs. If the right work up is done, the pet is a good candidate, the right anesthetic drugs are used, and your pet is, monitored thoroughly an older patient can do well with anesthesia. Cost is a big reason pets don't get dental care. Dental cleanings for pets are not emergency services and therefore can be saved up for. The unfortunate fact is that veterinary professionals cannot always give caretakers an exact dental estimate before the dental cleaning because they won't know what exactly needs to be done until they get into the mouth and do a full oral exam, take full mouth x-rays, probe under the gum line of each tooth and then come up with a more exact estimate. That is why most dental estimates seem low initially but end up much more when the patient is discharged. Dental disease in pets is a very serious health issue. Pets with dental disease are in pain. It is a chronic throbbing pain and therefore they will not yelp in pain and they will compensate for the pain by eating on one side of their mouth. Pets won't stop eating until their health is very dire and at this point disease is too far advanced by then. They are very good at hiding pain. Just because a pet is eating does not mean they are not in pain. Pets with bad dental disease are most likely living with bad migraines. Dental disease can affect their other organs including their heart, liver, and kidneys. There are many ways to help pet's teeth. Brushing pet's teeth is by far the gold standard. However, there are many dental diets that can help to keep the tartar at bay. They are designed so that the whole tooth will sink into the food kibble before it crumbles so it cleans higher up on the tooth. The kibbles are also larger. The more surface area to a food kibble, the more likely it is a pet will chew it. Hill's T/d or Science Diet Oral Care are some diets that are designed like this. There is also a water additive that has the VOHC seal that is designed to help decrease tartar which is called "Healthy Mouth." It comes in different avors as well. There are wipes, rinses, and gels that can also be used if brushing is too difficult. Using these products should not replace regular dental cleanings, but may help increase the time in between dental cleanings.

Outdoors 19A Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018FWC monitoring sea turtles, manatees during cold weatherAs Florida's residents and visitors manage the current cold-weather conditions, the state's unique and treasured sh and wildlife species may need some extra care as well. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is prepared and ready to prioritize this critical mission. "We are committed to conserving our natural resources, and are staged and ready in strategic areas throughout the state," said Eric Sutton, FWC executive director, in a press release. "Our team of FWC staff, partners and volunteers are monitoring the status of marine species affected most by the cold, and are prepared in case rescues are needed." Sea turtles are one species that can be affected by cold weather. When the water temperatures drop, stunned sea turtles may oat listlessly in the water on or near shore. Although these turtles may appear to be dead, they are often still alive. It is important to report these turtles to the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline as soon as possible. "Our staff, partners and permitted volunteers are already working to rescue sea turtles in northwest Florida. Nearly 100 turtles have been rescued so far. We are also monitoring the Mosquito Lagoon and other areas of the state to see if sea turtles are being impacted there," said Kipp Frohlich, director of FWC's Division of Habitat and Species Conservation. The Florida manatee is another species that can be impacted by extreme cold weather. When water temperatures drop, manatees gather in warm-water habitats such as discharge canals at power plants and natural springs. The FWC asks that boaters be extra vigilant in watching for manatees in shallow waters near the coast, both inland and coastal, and obey all posted manatee speed zone signs. "Boaters should avoid areas where large numbers of manatees are gathered," said Gil McRae, head of FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. "Aggregated animals should not be disturbed, as this could cause them to leave the warm-water sites that help them cope with cold temperatures." Sustaining adequate winter habitat for manatees remains a statewide conservation goal. To report a dead or distressed manatee, call the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922. Extended periods of unusually cold weather can kill sh outright by cold stress or make sh more susceptible to disease. Warm-water species, including the popular game sh snook, are particularly vulnerable to cold temperatures. Affected sh may appear lethargic and may be seen at the surface where the water may be warmer from the sun. The FWC monitors fish disease and mortality events around the state. Report dead and dying sh to the FWC Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511. All other distressed wildlife may be reported to the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922.

Temperatures that low aren't too good for shing around here, but a warm up this week will certainly help. The sh are still there and at some point, they will eat. Dealing with cold water is nothing new for trout anglers, and there's a couple of ways to look at it. Most often sh will head to deeper water as they seek out more stable temperatures. Consequently, deep water near your favorite grass at will often hold schools of trout until the water temperature moderates a bit, sending them back to the pothole laden grass ats we associate good trout habitat with. Often this deeper water will be the actual marked channel that runs along the Intracoastal. Often overlooked by inshore anglers, the main channel usually has a mud bottom that holds heat, and trout look for these spots for refuge. Slowly bouncing soft plastics along the bottom, especially along the drop-off, will often yield trout along with other winter time targets like ounder, pompano and silver trout. As the sun reappears after the front moves through, its rays will warm the very shallows during an afternoon incoming tide. Big trout instinctively know this. They often throw caution to the wind and risk overhead predation from ospreys or perhaps escape the harassment of dolphins as they move up to shin-deep water. With the water being so clear now, one of a shallow water angler's favorite thing to do is to slowly work along the shallows, usually less than 3 feet of water, and sight cast to big trout. These sh can usually be seen sitting in the sand holes and will readily take a weedless jerk-bait tossed their way. We get only a handful of clear windless days each winter so this type shing is really special. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at email@example.com.

20A Community Seminole Beacon, January 11, 2018Tarpon student emerges from icy depths with Epiphany cross, year of good luck By JEFF ROSENFIELD TBN CorrespondentTARPON SPRINGS The 112th edition of Tarpon Springs' Feast Day of the Epiphany was unusual in many ways. Below-normal temperatures forced parishioners to seek the warmth of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church as well as the few establishments that were open early Saturday morning, including Tulo's CafÂŽ on the Pinellas Trail. Other anomalies included a shorter than usual parade procession following the late Mass because the Tarpon Springs High School band did not participate this year, increased security measures for the event in the wake of the recent church shootings, and Bishop Alexios Panagiotopoulos of Atlanta stepping in for Archbishop Demetrios, whose ight was canceled because of the inclement weather in the northeast. Throw in some last-minute snags, such as one of the 55 teens chosen to dive for the cross in Spring Bayou not receiving the designated white Epiphany 2018 T-shirt until minutes before the late service began, and another having to drop out after he woke up with ulike symptoms, and it made for an unusual start to the city's daylong celebration. "My oldest son, Stephen, woke up this morning sick as a dog, so unfortunately he's not going to be able to dive this year," Matt Whyte of Bradenton explained. "It was going to be his third time and he was so excited because he knew where to stand and when to jump. There's a lot of prep that goes into it, a lot of hard work. He had been looking forward to this for years, the only chance to dive with his younger brother, James. But that's the way life goes sometimes."Cold weather doesnÂ’t dampen spiritsDespite the cold temperatures and unforeseen circumstances, nothing could dampen the spirit of the event, which is considered the largest of its kind in the world, drawing Greek Orthodox Catholics from all over the state and the entire country. "This is a good turnout, all things considered," diver committee member Michael Kouskoutis said after he gave the teenagers their last-minute instructions, which included removing all jewelry and cellphones and being aware of the low tide in the bayou. "We've had numbers as low as in the 40s and as high as the 70s, so 55, considering the cold and other factors, is a good showing." As the early morning chill temperatures were in the low 40s before the 8 a.m. service began to thaw, the late Mass got underway at around 10 a.m., and, as usual, it was standing-room only inside the ornately decorated cathedral. After the 90-minute service, the boys, all between the ages of 13-18 who were chosen for the honor of retrieving the cross following a stringent selection process, lined up outside the church for the procession to the dock. There, Catherine Mitseas cheered for her son, Dean, who missed the orientation session earlier in the week and did not receive his T-shirt until the morning of the event. "I'm proud of his courage and willingness to be a part of something signi cant like this. And to face this weather!" she said. "These boys don't have to do this. They do it because they want to and because they love their religion and the camaraderie that comes with being part of the group. It's a rite of passage and I couldn't be more proud of him for doing it." The 17-year-old Mitseas, a senior at Strawberry Crest High School in Tampa, took the blame for not having received his shirt beforehand. "This is my second time doing this and the rst time I was in charge of everything and I screwed up," he admitted. "But I got it all squared away and I'm here and ready to go." Asked how he felt about his chances for recovering the cross, Mitseas was realistic. "About 1 in 60," he said, noting last year he managed to get in the photograph with the winning diver, Tarpon Springs native Joseph Cooley. Unfortunately, the shallow waters preempted Mitseas' attempt as soon as it started. After the Bishop blessed the water and gave the word for the divers to enter, he landed awkwardly in the water and had to immediately be pulled from the bay. Once it was determined Mitseas didn't need medical attention, the ceremony continued.Two minutes, one cross and plenty of tearsDove bearer Kiersten Spanos, a 15-year-old TSHS student, released the white bird, which is the representation of the Holy Spirit, and Bishop Alexios said his nal words of prayer before the cross was tossed into the crescent-shaped area as bystanders lined every available inch of grass and concrete, hoping to get a glimpse of the annual tradition. Within two minutes of the cross and 55 teenage boys going into the water, a hand emerged from the icy depths clutching the T-shaped religious symbol tightly. Christosomos "Christian" Chrysakis, an 18-yearold Tarpon Springs High student, was the one who came up with the cross, a ritual that is said to bring good luck to the nder for the next year. As the senior was surrounded by his fellow divers, he was overcome with emotion, clutching the cross and hugging his friends while not trying to hold back his tears of joy. "This is unbelievable," Chrysakis said as he was carried back to the church on the backs of his fellow divers. "I don't know what to say right now. It's an unbelievable feeling." At the church, Christian and his family received well-wishes from dozens of people as the Epiphany Glendi, a festival featuring music and dancing, food and drink, got underway in the courtyard next to the church. As Christian took a few minutes to dry off and get changed for the ceremony, Emmanuel Chrysakis spoke about his son's accomplishment. "I'm very proud of him, very proud of all the divers," he said, adding, "I'm sure he'll be on Cloud 9 for a few days. It was a great blessing." Asked about his retrieving the cross on what was his third and final year attempting to do so, Emmanuel Chrysakis said it was meant to be. "It was all in God's eyes," he said. "If it was meant to be, it was meant to be, and I guess this year it was meant to be."Photo by JEFF ROSENFIELDChristosomos Â“ChristianÂ” Chrysakis, an 18-year-old Tarpon Springs High School student, retrieved the cross from Spring Bayou in Tarpon Springs as part of the cityÂ’s 112th annual Feast Day of the Epiphany celebration Jan. 6. FHM exhibition to document capture, trial of Nazi war criminal Adolf EichmannST. PETERSBURG "Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann" will open to the public on Saturday, Feb. 10, at The Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S., St. Petersburg. The exhibition is a co-production of The Mossad (Israel's secret intelligence service); Beit Hatfutsot, the Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, Israel; and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, Cleveland, Ohio. This exhibition is made possible by a grant from the Maltz Family Foundation. "Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann" is the rst exhibition in the United States to fully document the pursuit, capture, extradition, and trial of a Nazi war criminal. Adolf Eichmann, who had been in charge of transporting millions of European Jews to death camps, sat in a courtroom in 1961 for a trial that would be among the rst in history to be completely televised. The trial captivated millions of people across the globe and it was the rst time that many of them learned the details of the Holocaust. "There was a march of survivors, I would say approximately 100 survivors, who came into the witness box and told the story of what happened to them. And people watched them and listened to them and heard them in a way they hadn't heard them before," said Deborah Lipstadt, renowned historian and professor of religion and Holocaust studies at Emory University. The dramatic story behind one of the world's most notorious escaped Nazi war criminals being brought to justice is told using recently declassi ed artifacts from the Mossad. The exhibition includes objects and images made available outside the country for the rst time, such as original 1960s-era artifacts, photographs, Telly Award winning films and audio, as well as contemporary design elements and interactive features, to tell a story of espionage, intrigue and, ultimately, justice served. Also included in the exhibition is one of the most iconic objects of the century the bulletproof glass booth in which the accused sat as the courtroom drama was broadcast around the globe. During World War II, Eichmann was the key functionary in the Nazis' attempt to annihilate all of Europe's 11 million Jews. After the war he disappeared, but his crimes made him a wanted man. Operation Finale the code name of Israel's effort to nd him reveals exactly how Mossad agents located Eichmann in his hiding place in South America, and how they abducted and smuggled him safely to Israel to stand trial. Career Mossad agent Avner Avraham curated the espionage artifacts featured in "Operation Finale: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichmann." This exhibition is the rst time that the recently declassi ed Mossad materials have been seen outside of Israel. "I also see it as a new way to share the Holocaust story. We must learn from the Holocaust, especially as you see what is happening around the world today with bombs, international tensions, and crimes against humanity. This exhibition illustrates what we are talking about when we say, "never again." That message is even more important as survivors turn 80 and 90 years old because they will not be able to tell their stories forever," said Avraham. One of the largest Holocaust museums in the country, and one of three nationally accredited Holocaust museums, the FHM honors the memory of millions of men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The FHM is dedicated to teaching members of all races and cultures the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides.

W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $20. Call 813-229-7827 or visit www.strazcenter.org. Rocker Hannah Wicklund formed The Steppin Stones when she was 9 years old and has been ripping on guitar ever since. With the intensity of Janis Joplin and the guitar chops of Jimi Hendrix, 20-year-old Wicklund delivers pounding classic American rock that brings the golden age into the millennium. Hailing from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, the band is now based out of Nashville. Wicklund and company recently announced their new album will drop Jan. 26. Produced by Sadler Vaden, guitarist for Jason Isbell & the 400 Units, the 10-track, self-released album was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, and is a fresh take on WicklundÂ’s musical in uences drawn from Â’60s, Â’70s and Â’80s guitar-driven rock. Â“Once we started writing some songs, I saw that she had a real, raw talent,Â” said Vaden in a press release promoting the album. Â“I was inspired to work with her by her love of classic rock music and blues. I wanted to honor that in making this album, but also add a little modern edge to it.Â” Â“Bomb through the Breeze,Â” the lead single off the project, was released in October. Â“Sadler and I wrote this song as a response to feeling backed into a corner by someone who doesnÂ’t get the hint,Â” said Wicklund. Â“This is the type of song to hopefully inspire some self-con dence when it comes to standing up for yourself and others. Unfortunately, when someoneÂ’s volume is on loud for so long, the only way to get their attention is to do something even louder.Â” The rst rehearsal of The Steppin Stones was back in 2005, after which they were playing six to nine shows every week. The rst song they ever played was Neil YoungÂ’s Â“RockinÂ’ in the Free WorldÂ” at a charity event in South Carolina. By the time Wicklund graduated from high school at 16, they had logged well over a thousand gigs together. She grew up knowing that her life would be consumed by music. She understood that this meant working hard but never losing touch with the intensity that music requires. Wicklund credits her father with instilling that lesson. Her rst guitar was a present from him, as a kind of atonement for getting rid of her backyard trampoline. That very night, he taught her to play Â“RockinÂ’ in the Free WorldÂ” and Tom PettyÂ’s Â“ItÂ’s Good to Be King.Â” Wicklund ramped up her songwriting as well, based on the insights sheÂ’d picked up from playing carefully selected covers with The Steppin Stones. Â“To craft a song well, you look at whose songs you love,Â” she explained. Â“I love that we were a cover band because we got to see what worked and what didnÂ’t through other peopleÂ’s music Â– and, as a three-piece, how to make it work.Â” Wicklund & The Steppin Stones continue to tear it up on the road. In late 2017, they toured Europe and then performed more shows in the U.S., nishing the year out with a string of shows with The Marshall Tucker Band.

OPENING, from page 1B Â‘Days of Future PassedÂ’Moody Blues to perform iconic album in its entirety with a rock symphony orchestra at Ruth Eckerd HallCLEARWATER Â– The Moody Blues, on the road celebrating the 50th anniversary of Â“Days of Future Passed,Â” will perform Saturday, Jan. 13, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $68.75. The venue reports the show has sold out. For information, call 727-791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Â“Days of Future Passed,Â” the iconic, landmark album, was released in 1967. The band will re ect back on ve decades of some of the most well-beloved music in pop culture history when they perform live onstage, for the rst-time ever, this epic album that marked the first time a rock band had fused their sound with a symphony orchestra. The tour Â– titled Â“Days of Future Passed: 50th Anniversary Â– will bring the live excitement of seeing the band perform their greatest hits in the rst half of the show, and then nish with Â“Days of Future PassedÂ” performed in the second half. Fans have waited 50 years to experience this moment in time. Â“Days of Future Passed,Â” the bandÂ’s rst full-length studio album, was a ground-breaking concept album when it was rst released. Unique in its approach, the recording of their rst studio album turned out to be a piece of music history. Decca Records, the bandÂ’s music label, had requested that the band record an album to test Â“stereo recording,Â” which was in its infancy at the time. Being primarily a classical label, The Moody Blues were asked to record a rock version of DvorakÂ’s 9th Symphony. The band complied, but wanted to record it on their own terms. Behind closed doors, they came up with the concept of fusing classical music with rock, but written to their own soundtrack. The result was Â“Days of Future Passed,Â” an album that many consider a masterpiece. Â“Days of Future PassedÂ” features one full album without breaks, chronicling Â“a day in the life ofÂ” a person with songs that include Â“The Day Begins,Â” Â“Dawn: Dawn Is a Feeling,Â” Â“The Morning: Another Morning,Â” Â“Lunch Break: Peak Hour,Â” Â“Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon),Â” Â“(Evening) Time to Get Away;Â” Â“Twilight TimeÂ” and Â“Nights In White Satin.Â” From the album, the song Â“Tuesday AfternoonÂ” became a massive worldwide hit, and Â“Nights In White SatinÂ” marked one of the first four-minute songs played on the radio, going on to become one of the biggest selling singles in history. The ultimate result: Â“Days of Future PassedÂ” became one of the greatest-selling albums of all-time. Â“Little did we know when we made Â‘Days of Future PassedÂ’ that it would eventually change our lives,Â” said Justin Hayward in a press release promoting the tour. Â“It took ve long years to make it the top of the charts. But we mustnÂ’t take all the credit for this remarkable project Â– there were many creative minds who contributed at the time, and who believed in us when we were young and inexperienced. We just wrote the songs Â– about every-man. My dearest wish is that maybe the album has made the world a better place. It will be a joy to return to it, live.Â” From the time the British band rst hit the rock scene, The Moody Blues have continued to produce music that bridge the gap between rock, classical and pop-rock genres. Featuring guitarist/vocalist Justin Hayward, bassist/vocalist John Lodge, and drummer Graeme Edge, The Moody BluesÂ’ sound has held its ground in a genre of music that is ever-changing. The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide and have been awarded 14 platinum and gold discs. Their roster of hits includes Â“Nights In White Satin,Â” Â“Tuesday Afternoon,Â” Â“Ride My See Saw,Â” Â“The Story In Your Eyes,Â” Â“IsnÂ’t Life Strange,Â” Â“Question,Â” Â“IÂ’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),Â” Â“Your Wildest DreamsÂ” and Â“I Know YouÂ’re Out There Somewhere,Â” to name a few. The Moody BluesÂ’ No. 1, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, Top 40, multi-platinum, platinum and gold albums and singles, have generated sold-out tours on a consistent basis over the course of several decades, making them one of the top-grossing album and touring bands of all time.

PETERSBURG Â– The Sunshine Musical Festival will take place Saturday, Jan. 13, noon, at Vinoy Park, 701 Bay Shore Drive NE, St. Petersburg. General admission tickets are $64.95 and $129.95 for reserved seats. For tickets, visit www.livenation.com, call 800-745-3000 or visit a TicketMaster outlet. The award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band will be making their sixth headlining appearance at the 2018 Sunshine Music Festival. The band has handpicked an unparalleled line-up of exciting acts on two live music stages along with a wider array of refreshing craft beers and a larger variety of food vendors. The festival will kick off at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg before moving on to Mizner Park Amphitheater, Boca Raton, on Sunday, Jan. 14. For the sixth year in a row the Tedeschi Trucks Band, or TTB as their loyal fans prefer to call them, appear in what has fast become their signature musical event. Now with a catalog of ve albums and nearly a decade of steady touring in the U.S. and abroad, Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation earned from both audiences and critics as one of the premier live bands in the world. The 12-piece powerhouse, led by the husband-andwife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and guitarist-singer Susan Tedeschi, continues to expand a growing repertoire of original material written both individually and as a band, plus tasty covers deep-seated in American Roots, embracing genres, from rock, jazz, blues, and Americana to gospel, country, soul, and funk. Their latest release, Â“Live from the Fox OaklandÂ” (March 2017), was recorded in a single night and beautifully captures the groupÂ’s incredible power in concert. The double-disc live recording, which debuted at No. 1 on BillboardÂ’s Blues and No. 6 Rock Albums chart, showcases the bandÂ’s ability to move seamlessly from blistering rock and blues to soulful ballads and includes their take on classics from Derek and the Dominos, Leonard Cohen, and even Miles Davis among TTBÂ’s original songs. The film also gives a behind-the-scenes look at the band on the road. Curated by Tedeschi Trucks Band, other exciting top acts announced on this yearÂ’s bill for the festival include Phish bassist and multi-instrumentalist Mike Gordon who has just released his new solo album Â“OGOGOÂ”; Medeski Martin & Wood effortlessly straddling the gap between avant-garde improvisation and accessible groovebased jazz; Galactic, the seminal New Orleans funk band that is consistently pushing their artistic boundaries; Hot Tuna featuring the legendary guitar and bass bluesy sounds of former Jefferson Airplane members Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady; Foundation of Funk featuring the legendary backbone of The Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and bassist George Porter Jr. with special guests Eric Krasno and John Medeski; and The Suffers a 10-piece band from Houston, Texas, who are rede ning the sound of Gulf Coast Soul.

The DeadPhish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played music together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together. But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jam-band scene. While these two bands have their surface similarities, most fans realize that their actual musical styles are quite different. The Grateful Dead are an earthy, folky, bluesy band where Phish is sharper around the edges Â– funky and more aggressive. But both bands have an improvisational approach to their live shows, and it is in that spontaneity where the magic really happens. The guys in DPO have posed themselves a unique challenge in merging the two styles. Band members include Chris Sheldon (drums and vocals), Paul Murin (guitar and vocals), Brian Adams (bass and vocals) and Ted Tilton (keyboards and vocals).

The instructor works with each student independently. Students learn about paints, brushes, color mixing, composition, all of the basics needed to form a foundation in traditional oil painting. Individual creativity is emphasized. New skills are taught in a fun and friendly atmosphere. The instructor is Betsy Schoepf of Indian Rocks Beach. She has been painting for over 40 years and particularly enjoys still life and beach scenes.
