By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO National Sheriff's Association CEO and Executive Director Jonathan Thompson called it a "historic moment" as he and other law enforcement of cials gathered in Largo the afternoon of Jan. 18 to announce a new partnership between the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and 17 Florida sheriffs. The new Basic Ordering Agreements allow sheriffs to hold people they arrest who are in the United States illegally up to 48 hours so ICE can come and get them. The National Sheriffs' Association and Major County Sheriffs of America worked with ICE to develop the BOA process that assures aliens held in county jails are under federal authority, giving local law enforcement liability protection from potential litigation. ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan thanked Thompson and Pinellas County Sheriff and MCSA Treasurer Bob Gualtieri for their work on the agreement during a press conference at the sheriff's Administration Building in Largo. "Local cooperation and local partnerships are essential to our work and vital to ensuring public safety and strengthening national security," he said. The new agreement with ICE makes communities safer and more secure from criminal activity by ensuring that "dangerous illegal aliens" with no legal standing to be in the United States are not released back into the community," he said. In addition, it allows ICE of cers to take custody of a suspect in the "safety and PCSO enters ICE partnershipPinellas County teams up with 16 other sheriff's of ces in ICE agreement By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersTALLAHASSEE Pinellas County's December not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 3.2 percent, down from 3.4 percent in November and down a full percentage point from December 2016.

Florida reported an unemployment rate of 3.7 percent, a decrease from 3.8 percent in November and 4.7 percent reported in November last year. The U.S. unemployment rate remained unchanged from November at 3.9 percent, but declined considerably from November 2016 when the unemployment rate was 4.5 percent.

For more information, email hosts ex-hater now advocate for toleranceSEMINOLE A former member of a violent right-wing 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 officer, 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. Advance registration is required at See AROUND, page 4A Cannabis Certi cations Call Today!

Since the museum is located in Seminole City Park, sometimes SHS volunteers and board members will stop by the playground to invite families to visit the museum.

On Wednesday, March 28, 7 p.m., a speaker from Sarasota's Mote Marine Laboratory will speak about the facility. "That's a world-class research institution and people don't realize it's so close to us," Etter said. Former Tampa Bay Times reporter and author Jeff Klinkenberg will speak at the museum Wednesday, April 25, 7 p.m. This is his second visit to the museum, Etter said. He gave a presentation last year that attracted around 250 people. Because of the large crowd, the presentation was moved into the Parkview Room at the community center that houses the museum, and Etter said it's likely they're hold the event there again this year. Klinkenberg is releasing a new book this spring "Son of Real Florida: Stories from My Life." The two-time winner of the Paul Hansell Distinguished Journalism Award and recent Florida Heritage Award winner is also the author of "Alligators in B-Flat: Improbably Tales from the Files of Real Florida," "Pilgrim in the Land of Alligators: More Stories about Real Florida" and "Seasons of Real Florida."On Wednesday, May 23, 7 p.m., a speaker from Pinellas County will speak about transportation in the county. They'll discuss long-range transportation plans in the county as well as how planners monitor traf c patterns to determine future needs. The speaker will also discuss specific projects, including planned Pinellas Trail improvements and the Transportation Disadvantage Program. "It will be a wonderful opportunity for people to get [information] face to face rather than read it in a newspaper or see it on TV," Etter said. A speaker from Tampa International Airport will visit the museum Wednesday, June 27, 7 p.m., to discuss its history and plans for growth. The airport "has had a tremendous impact in our area for 50 years," Etter said, and as one of the largest employers in the Tampa Bay region is an economic driving force in the community.Etter is currently booking speakers for the second half of 2018. The museum is open Saturdays and Thursdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.seminole honor of the 50th anniversary of the city’s Pow Wow Festival, Peter Gallagher is the guest speaker Wednesday, Feb. 28.

6A County Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018PSTA and Clearwater team up to improve beach transit options By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER PSTA and the city of Clearwater are working together to solve an age-old problem of how best to get people to Clearwater Beach. Officials from PSTA and the city updated the Forward Pinellas Board Jan. 10 about projects that are part of a cooperative relationship to improve the State Road 60 corridor the main thoroughfare to Clearwater Beach. Cassandra Borchers, PSTA's chief development of cer, talked about the spring break seasonal service partnership between the city and PSTA. The service, rst offered in 2017, will be available again in 2018. In 2017, Spring Break Trolley Park and Ride was from Feb. 24April 30. This year, the free service is scheduled from Feb. 19-April 29. Borchers said much about the behavior of those going to the beach had been learned during the rst year of free trolley rides to the beach. She said PSTA would be asking the city to help fund this year's program, estimated to cost $135,000.Borchers also announced that PSTA's new Clearwater Beach Transit Center should be complete in February just in time for spring break. The new center should help people locate that "hard to nd one seat ride" from the beach to destinations in northern parts of the county and back, she said. The new transit center also will facilitate the county's first "bus queue jump," which will allow buses to bypass and get in front of traf c. PSTA and the city are working together on the project, which will be a necessary part of a future TIA Express service when funding becomes available. PSTA has asked the state legislature for $2.2 million to help fund TIA Express, which would provide rides from Tampa International Airport to Clearwater Beach every 30 minutes from 5 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. Officials estimate annual ridership would be between 115,000-265,000. PSTA also is asking legislators for money to create a Clearwater Memorial Bridge Bus Way. Borchers said a bus way would help eliminate traffic backups from downtown Clearwater to the beach. It would feature an exclusive lane for existing trolley services. The lane also could be used by TIA Express buses and emergency vehicles. Another project on the list is the Clearwater Intermodal Center, which would replace the aging Park Street Transfer Center. Borchers said a $1.2 million grant would fund the planning and design phases of the project. PSTA expects to award the design contract later this year. The site selection analysis is complete and the preferred site is a location owned by the city.Currently, there is no money currently available for construction. The plan is to get everything ready while PSTA works on a funding strategy, Borchers said. Some additional improvements are in the works to improve pedestrian safety, especially near the roundabout, which Paul Bertels, city of Clearwater's manager of Traffic Operations, talked about. Bertels said the roundabout is working well to manage traf c on Clearwater Beach. He said during spring break 6,000-10,000 people ock to the area and about 60,000 cars use the roundabout. No crashes with pedestrians have been reported, he said. However, there is a problem with people thinking the paver area around the inside of the roundabout is a sidewalk. It is actually meant to serve as a truck apron. Bertels said the plan is to remove the pavers and landscape the area to force people to use a crossing area. The city is installing a signalized crosswalk to allow for a safe crossing just west of the new transit center, he said. He said the crosswalk should be complete by the time the new transit center opens. Plans call to remove the pavers after spring break. The cost is $154,000. Doreen Caudell, Clearwater Council member and member of the Forward Pinellas Board, suggested as an alternative that the city fence off the area around the pavers, using the same as fencing as the city currently has in place to keep pedestrians out of other areas on the beach. She said the city should leave the pavers in place to serve their original purpose as a truck apron. She said if the fencing was placed correctly, it would not allow walking in the area. She said it would save the city the cost of removing the pavers, as well as installation and maintenance of landscaping. Caudell advocates the use of an elevated walkway in the future that could accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists. Bertels prefers to remove the pavers "to take away the mindset that it is a walkway."

8A County Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018security of a county jail." "This agreement will keep them (law enforcement) a little bit safer and this agreement will keep citizens of Florida a lot safer," Homan said. Gualtieri said the new agreement with ICE had nothing to do with the "complex topic" of immigration or people who were "simply here illegally." "And it is not about the politics of illegal immigration," Gualtieri said. "It is entirely about public safety, and ICE and law enforcement working together so those we are sworn to protect don't unnecessarily become crime victims." There are an estimated 1 million criminal illegal aliens in the United States, Gualtieri said, adding that recently released statistics show that 94 percent of all aliens in federal custody are here illegally. The sheriff believes that an equally high percentage of those in custody at the state and local level are illegals. For over 25 years, ICE issued immigration detainers to local jails asking that illegal criminals be held until federal of cers could pick them up. Gualtieri said most sheriffs honored those detainers. Then in 2014, federal courts ruled the detainers didn't provide authority for sheriffs to hold illegal criminals for ICE, Gualtieri said. Many sheriffs stopped honoring the detainers. He also said the previous administration made decisions and implemented policies that "strained the relationship between the sheriffs and ICE." "Sheriffs were between a rock and a hard place," Gualtieri said. "We had to choose between releasing criminals from our jails to go out and commit more crimes and victimize our communities or risk being sued and paying six gure judgements on civil rights violations. Both are bad places for sheriffs." Then early in 2017, President Trump issued an executive order that resulted in a policy change. Under the revised system, detainers were only to be issued based on probable cause that the alien was removable and all detainers had to be accompanied with arrest warrants, Gualtieri said. "It was a move in the right direction, but there were and are legal impediments to local law enforcement serving ICE arrest warrants," Gualtieri said, adding that many sheriffs still were not able to honor the detainers. He said sheriffs had been working with ICE for the past year to nd a solution that would allow sheriffs to hold criminal illegals for up to 48 hours after their state or local charges were resolved, giving ICE time to come and pick them up. The new Basic Ordering Agreements does that. Gualtieri explained that it is a housing agreement between the ICE and the sheriffs. Under federal law, ICE can contract with sheriffs to house illegal aliens in their jails. The sheriffs will be paid up to $50 for the 48 hours. "It is a lawful solution that meets our collective legal and public safety needs," he said. He said the 17 sheriffs' offices would begin to implement the new agreements immediately and the use of BOA would be rolled out to the rest of the state and then other parts of the country. He said a timetable had not yet been set. He pointed to two "big misconceptions" about the new process. The rst is that people would claim it is unlawful because federal judges do not issue the warrants detached to the detainers. He said that claim was false. Administrative warrants issued by ICE are in full compliance with the law, Gualtieri said, adding that federal judges have no authority to issue warrants. The second misconception is that some people being held for ICE are not serious criminals and may have only committed minor crimes. Gualtieri said that ICE looks at the "totality of the circumstances" in deciding whether to issue the detainer and book the person into jail. He said in many cases the current charge might be minor but the person has a signi cant criminal history or has been deported many times previously and then reentered the country. "If someone's been deported, they shouldn't come back and they certainly shouldn't come back and commit crimes." Homan said it was ICE's duty to enforce immigration laws responsibly; however, public safety and of cer safety was paramount. The new BOAs create a lawful system where criminal aliens are taken into ICE custody and not only removed from the community where they committed the crime but also the country, he said. "Today's a good day for ICE," Homan said. "Today's a good day for Florida law enforcement. Today's a very good day for the residents of the state of Florida."

Schools 11A Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018Oversight committee watches over school referendum money By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Pinellas County property owners pay a little extra in ad-valorem taxes to supplement the school district's budget. The money pays for a variety of needs to enhance quality of education. In 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016, voters said yes to a referendum question to increase property taxes by one-half mill to pay for necessary school operating expenses. The money pays to recruit and retain teachers. It also pays to supplement reading programs. It provides funds to enhance music and art programs, and it allows the district to buy upto-date materials and technology. The Independent Citizens Referendum Oversight Committee monitors how the District spends the money. It reviews quarterly expenditure reports that include details about purchases in each of the program areas: teacher compensation, reading, visual arts, performing arts and technology. Committee Chairman Mike Meidel, who also is director of the county's Economic Development department, presented a report on the annual review to the school board Jan. 16. The report shows how well the District is following the intent of the referendum guidelines that govern how the money should be spent. In 2016-2017, taxes collected per the referendum provided the District with an additional $30.1 million to spend in the program areas. Meidel said 80 percent went toward teacher's salaries. Thanks to referendum dollars, $3,800 per teacher is available over the base salary, he said. The other 20 percent was spent on visual arts, performing arts, digital learning, elementary reading and language arts, and secondary reading.Visual artsSome examples of how the money enhances education in the visual arts department include buying art equipment or furniture for 26 schools. Eighteen schools received color printers, 19 visual arts teachers received a laptop computer, 15 teachers received iPads and 17 received a camera, tripod and light kits. One high school visual arts classroom got a computer lab, ve middle school classrooms received a 40-unit iPad lab for visual arts and seven elementary students received a 30-unit iPad lab. In addition, two elementary traveling 30-unit iPad labs were purchased for use throughout the District. The money paid for 159 field trips attended by 10,972 students to local art museums and galleries. Seven digital arts camps were attended by 219 students in grades four-eight with 30 teachers providing instruction in a variety of visual arts media. Sixty-three of the District's visual arts students were able to attend the Florida Art Education Association conference, 14 high school teacher attended Advanced Placement Art Studio training and 18 training sessions for teachers provided 135 hours of professional development.Performing artsExamples of how referendum funding helps performing arts are numerous. The money purchased musical instruments, equipment and supplies for 66 elementary classrooms, and 72 secondary schools received funds for music, supplies, equipment, accompanists and other support. Fifty-six elementary teachers and 75 secondary school teachers were able to attend Florida Music Associations professional development training and 16 attended training from the Florida Association of Theatre Educators. Thanks to taxpayer's generosity, a second middle school all-county honor band received support. Two schools were able to order new band uniforms and two more are in the process. All high school band programs have money to pay for auxiliary staff. Musical instruments are expensive to buy or rent. Referendum money provides for an instrument program that allows rental fees to be waived for students on free of reduced lunch program. A choral instructor shared by Bay Pointe Middle School and Lakewood High School and a parttime choral position at Morgan Fitzgerald is paid from money made possible by the referendum. The Committee's report points out that an initiative to rebuild the strings program that was cut in the early 1990s is working with programs in place at 38 schools. Referendum money pays for guitar programs in middle and high schools.Digital learningThe long-term goal for money allocated for digital learning is to provide every classroom and teacher with interactive technologies. Toward that goal, 471 SMART Boards or interactive projectors were installed at 49 schools during the 2016-2017 school year. Meidel said the plan is to equip all schools with a SMART Board as soon as possible to enhance digital learning. Technology is constantly changing, so the District developed a multi-year plan for updates in all classrooms. An advisory team reviews technology referendum projects at least once a year. Other technology projects include implementation of Microsoft Of ce 365 tools and other interactive applications. Teachers are given access to professional development by the Digital Learning team.Elementary reading and language artsReferendum funds for elementary reading supplemented literacy instruction in all 77 elementary schools as well as exceptional education schools. Teachers received reading materials designed to enhance reading skills. Funding targeted the District's youngest readers, kindergarten through second grade. All schools received literacy materials based on enrollment and individual need. Teachers received professional development opportunities, including literacy coaches and a teacher from each school attending Poynter Institute's Language Arts Florida Standards Summer Institute.Secondary school readingTaxpayers' money supported teachers and students with Language Arts Florida Standardsinspired education, according to the Committee's report. Referendum funds provided reading classrooms with materials that would not otherwise be available, including instructional software, grade-level fiction and non-fiction texts, novels and magazines. Schools received a fixed-dollar amount of money based on school-size to address literacy needs based on their School Improvement Plan, allowing them to buy needed technology as well as updating classroom libraries. Professional development for teachers also is provided by referendum funds. School Board Chairwoman Rene Flowers said referendum funding was an "amazing program" that allowed the District to do more, especially in the music department. School Board member Linda Lerner agreed, saying she has visited the schools and sees evidence of what the extra money is able to provide. "It is part of our success for sure," Lerner said. School Board Vice-Chairwoman thanked the citizens for their support. "They understand the need for good education," she said.

14A Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018 012518S


Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018Boom! That sound you heard emanating from the western side of the Tampa Bay area wasn't a sonic blast, or the exhaust fumes from an unidentified flying object. But if you're still searching for answers to why your windows rattled this morning, check out the University of South Florida St. Petersburg or, as that campus likes to call itself, USFSP. Of cials and faculty are no doubt still pondering how their life will be different if a move in the Florida Legislature is to combine USF's three branches Tampa, St. Pete, and Sarasota-Manatee into one big single university is successful. So what, you ask? So, here's what: goodbye relative autonomy for the smaller schools and hello to a new identity of being simply a branch off the giant USF main tree in Tampa. And if you don't know how much they would hate that in St. Pete and Sarasota-Manatee, then you don't understand university politics. USFSP has a history of going rogue against the authority of the Mother Ship on Fowler Avenue in Tampa. The short version is this: the good educators in St. Pete don't want to be a branch on anyone's tree. They have wanted to be a separate entity, making their decisions. With the blessing of the Legislature in the 1990s, that's kind of what they got after faculty and of cials in St. Pete complained about being disrespected by the larger campus in Tampa. There were limitations to that independence, as now-former USFSP regional chancellor Sophia Wisniewska learned in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. She was red by USF President Judy Genshaft for essentially dereliction of duty when she left town during the storm but tried to imply that she was on the job protecting students and the campus. "Your conduct created an intolerable safety risk to our students and the USFSP community," is how Genshaft phrased it. St. Pete got the message: You still belong to me. Not long after that, the St. Pete campus lost one its main defenders when powerful state Sen. Jack Latvala resigned after being caught up in a sex scandal that swirls today. Latvala ercely fought for the autonomy of USFSP while in of ce, and of cials in Tampa were concerned that he might try to break off the St. Pete campus altogether following the model by former state Sen. J.D. Alexander who hijacked the USF campus in Polk County to create Florida Polytechnic University. Tampa officials were concerned Latvala might try to include the prestigious USF College of Marine Science in a hostile takeover. The college, while located on the St. Pete campus, has been under full control of Tampa and is a cash cow in terms of generating donations. With Latvala gone, though, the relative silence coming from Tampa after Tuesday's news that Rep. Chris Sprowls led a bill that would combine the campuses indicates Genshaft probably is smiling quietly. For what it's worth, Sprowls, a Palm Harbor Republican, is a USF graduate. Without Latvala to break knees and lead the opposition, the odds that this consolidation happens would seem to be greatly increased. Sprowls told the Tampa Bay Times that everyone should be happy about this because, "It's an opportunity for St. Petersburg and Sarasota-Manatee to have a pre-eminent university in their community. I think, naturally, it will have them rising together as opposed to being separate limbs." I doubt seriously that's how USFSP is looking at this. It goes back to the long regional rivalry between Tampa and St. Pete, and the complaint from the west side of the Bay that Tampa gets everything. That's not as true as it used to be. In this case though, it might be the best way to describe what might happen. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. LETTERSNarrower lanes raise questions Re: “Which road to take,” Jan. 18. Editor: With Florida law stating the max track width of vehicles is 102 inches (8 1/2 feet) and a lot of trucks with tires exceeding the width of their fenders, are the of cials at Forward Pinellas considering these issues if they plan on constructing narrower lanes along West Bay Drive? Try driving on Mehlenbacher facing one of these behemoths coming from the opposite direction. Thank you for your consideration and any fact corrections. Ronald Skidmore LargoBuild a monument to TrumpEditor: The Donald's determination to build a "border wall" has very little to do with "illegal immigration;" it is clearly an effort to stroke his narcissistic ego. Rather than throw billions of dollars at constructing such a massive "boondoggle," why not compromise build a very massive Trump Shrine right down there at the border between USA and Mexico. Even name it The Donald Trump Immigration Shrine! Trump's own monument! Ooh-La-La! Debbie & Carey Allen Tierra VerdeMaintain home rule in Florida Editor Home Rule was voted on and adopted into Florida's constitution by 1973, thereby ending challenges to city and county powers. In Article VIII, Section 2(b) of the constitution it so states that "Municipalities shall have governmental, corporate, and Proprietary powers to enable them to conduct municipal government, perform municipal functions, and render municipal services, and may exercise power for municipal purposes except as otherwise provided by law." Fiscal taxing authority is reserved to the state. To otherwise revoke or impede the capability of the municipalities within the state of Florida to conduct local business that we as citizens in the state of Florida are accustomed to being solved locally would only serve to make the governing process unwieldy if all has to have its blessing by Tallahassee.Being able to enact ordinances, codes and resolutions as a chartered government working in concert with Tallahassee is a precious gift that should not be impeded. In closing, I have one question. If indeed our state legislature wishes to interfere in the governance of local municipalities, then how can they complain about the federal government impeding a state's right to govern itself? Pamela McAloon Palm Harbor I bring good news for any world travelers who may chance upon this column: you can now dine in Paris without worrying about which suit or dress (or almost anything) that you wear. At the O'Naturel Restaurant you need only to wear a smile. That dining establishment has become open to nudists. Nudity has long been a topic of interest for humankind. Most of us were born nude, but didn't stay that way for long. Blankets and diapers were immediately provided, and we were soon wrapped in the custom of covering ourselves against the weather, prying eyes and other external forces. Exceptions to this practice have occurred over the years. They include nudist colonies, nude beaches and a photographer named Spencer Tunick who specializes in assembling huge throngs of buck-naked volunteer men and women and then taking stupendous crowd shots. Attitudes toward nudity vary greatly. For some examples, just Google "nude Paris restaurant" and read the comments. I'd quote some of the jokes, but many of them are tasteless (excuse the accidental pun) and should not appear in a family newspaper, even though any 15-yearold with an I.Q. of 88 or more can easily come up with his or her own list of raucous quips. The O'Naturel Restaurant seats 40 customers. Clothed and naked diners sit next to one another, which provides conversational topics or else squelches social chit-chat altogether, I suppose. Upon arriving at the restaurant, the noodies (my term, but feel free to use it) are taken to a special cloakroom. There they deposit every stitch of raiment, except that women may wear high heels into the dining area. I'm not sure whether necklaces, bracelets and earrings are also allowed. I'm sure perfume is permitted. Picture this: a hungry couple (let's call them Durand) wander into O'Naturel without knowing it welcomes noodies to its premises. The couple are seated, but suddenly realize they're next to a table full of naked diners. What can the Durands do? If they ask the waiter to nd them a table far from any noodies, they may be called anti-nudists and be banned from ever again setting foot in the restaurant. But this is unlikely to occur, since the French are notoriously open-minded, except toward foreign tourists who speak the French language poorly and know little about wine. O'Naturel's kitchen staff remains fully clothed (I can hear the sighs of "Thank God!"). So do the waiters, waitresses, busboys, busgirls and any stray chanteuses hired to titillate (if that's the appropriate word) the diners. The hazards of nude dining (for both customers and waiters) are obvious. In a conventional restaurant, spilling a cup of hot tea or a bowl of steaming soup might result in little more than a stained dress or pair of trousers. But with no clothing to protect the diner, signi cant injury and subsequent lawsuits could quickly follow. Has the O'Naturel Restaurant been troubled by swarms of paparazzi pointing their cameras at the naked diners inside? Apparently not. To eliminate that possibility, management has hung heavy drapes across the front windows. If many more nude restaurants open throughout Europe or elsewhere, the French haute couture industry, which designs and manufactures fashionable, often overpriced, clothing could be in deep trouble.A nal note: If you're unable to visit Paris and enjoy the atmosphere of O'Naturel, you can still experience it in your own home. Here's how your invitation to your closest friends would read: "Please come to the O'Malley residence next Saturday night and enjoy an evening of French cuisine. Your taste buds will tremble at our veloute de chataignes (creamy chestnut soup), followed by bourride ( sh stew) and nishing with chocolate croissants. And the piece de resistance for the entire evening is this: WE'LL ALL BE NAKED AS JAYBIRDS! See you then."Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@com cast.netDŽjˆ vu the Democrats' playbook WASHINGTON In 2013, House Republicans shut down the federal government in a doomed effort to defund then-President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. It lasted 17 days and accomplished nothing. Amazingly, Democrats have decided to follow the same lame playbook. Back in 2013, Obama called it the "Republican shutdown" and he was right, even if his party controlled the White House and Senate. Top aide Dan Pfeiffer likened the shutdown caucus to terrorists with a "bomb strapped to their chest." Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had a similar view. The solidly conservative congressman called those pushing the shutdown "lemmings with suicide vests." Now some Democrats are pushing to shut down the government if they can't pass a "clean" bill to extend Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which provided legal status for as many as 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought into the country as children. Here "clean" means 100 percent one-sided. Others, like Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., support a bill they see as a compromise, but it doesn't re ect the scales of power. Republicans own the House and the White House. Senate Republicans, with a slim majority of 51, need Democrats to pass a 60-vote hurdle. If they insist on DACA as a condition to keep the government operating, they will have overplayed their hand. Friday morning, when there was time to pass a bill, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney already was calling it "the Schumer shutdown" in reference to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Across town, the Democratic National Committee sent out a press release with the headline, "Republicans Created the Trump Shutdown." The Democrats' push for a shutdown was fueled by a week of saturation news coverage over Trump's reported term for Haiti and African nations "s---hole countries" during a Jan. 11 White House meeting with Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., as the duo pitched their bipartisan compromise to extend and expand DACA. Trump denied using that word. Cable news pundits, however, engaged in precious debates about Trump's exact language. Democrats' wrath could not be contained. During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., berated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as "a threat to this country" after she testi ed she did not hear Trump say the word in question, but she did hear "tough" language. Schumer and Graham seemed to think they were a breath away from a deal. The DNC issued this talking point: "After saying he would sign a deal, Trump rejected a bipartisan agreement and threatened to shut down the government over his wall," referring to the president's desire to build a wall along the southern border. The Durbin-Graham measure has support from senators from both parties, but it also has garnered erce opposition, especially in the GOP House. As a senior administration of cial told reporters, the Trump White House wants a deal that does not "re-create a second DACA wave." She added that border crossings are increasing. Graham himself told CNN on Thursday that the measure is not the Bible; it can be amended. With no Senate DACA deal, House Republicans tried a different approach to woo Democrats. Thursday the House passed a short-term continuing resolution that would reauthorize the Children's Health Insurance Plan, which covers some 9 million children, and fund it for six years. The House passed the measure with a few Democratic votes. But it can't garner 60 votes in the Senate. It doesn't include DACA. Trump has compromised. He campaigned on a pledge to revoke the DACA order but in February he revealed he did not want to go through with it. In September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the administration would rescind the order which the administration deemed to be an illegal act of executive overreach but over six months to give Congress until March 5 to broker a deal. As Trump canceled a planned Friday trip to Mar-a-Lago, Schumer went to the White House for further negotiations. Later Schumer said the two discussed "all of the major outstanding issues. We made some progress, but we still a have a good number of disagreements." Ten Senate Democrats up for re-election this year hail from states Trump won in 2016. As the shutdown drags on, Republicans are more than happy to hammer them for their membership in a party that put undocumented immigrants before CHIP kids, as well as the underfunded military. Meanwhile, a rump of Democrats and Republicans have said they don't want to pass another continuing resolution because temporary xes shortchange defense. Dreamers, a term for DACA recipients, "aren't bargaining chips" that's been the mantra of the Democrats demanding this "clean" DACA bill. That's the sort of talk you get when a party's base pushes a party toward the abyss. What they're really saying is: Compromise is a dirty word. Contact Debra J.

Police 17A Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018 Police beatTarpon Springs PD investigates suspicious packageTARPON SPRINGS Tarpon Springs police evacuated four residences on E. Tarpon Avenue and closed the roadway between Safford and Grosse Avenue Jan. 20 after a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier found a suspicious device. A mail carrier agged down a Tarpon Springs police of cer about 8:30 a.m. to report that a suspicious package had been found in the parking lot at 309 E. Tarpon Avenue. The of cer went to the location and found the device described as being about the size of a football wrapped in gray tape with what appeared to be a wire sticking out of one end. Police say the device was on the ground in the north parking lot, near a concrete parking stop. Police evacuated nearby residences and closed a portion of E. Tarpon Avenue as a precaution and noti ed the Tampa Bay Area Regional Bomb Squad. The bomb squad responded about 11 a.m. and examined the device. The determination was made about an hour later that the device contained sand and the protruding wire was fashioned into a handle to pick up and carry the object. Police say the object was made by a previous tenant of the location. Police allowed occupants to return to their homes and reopened the closed roadway about 12:10 p.m.Motorcyclist crashes while fleeing from deputies in ClearwaterCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a crash that occurred about 3:47 p.m. in the eastbound lane of State Road 590, just west of the McMullen Booth Road intersection in Clearwater. According to deputies assigned to the sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team, Michael Brown, 21, of Clearwater was driving his 2016 Yamaha motorcycle at a high rate of speed northbound on U.S. 19 North, near Drew Street in Clearwater. A deputy observed Brown speeding and driving recklessly as he weaved in and out of traf c. The deputy followed Brown as he made an eastbound turn onto State Road 590. The deputy activated his emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to stop Brown. Investigators say Brown fled from the deputy at a high rate of speed and continued eastbound on State Road 590. The deputy did not pursue Brown and lost sight of the motorcycle. Investigators say Brown continued eastbound on State Road 590 at a high rate of speed passing several vehicles on the roadway. As Brown approached McMullen Booth Road, Douglas Deserre, 60, of Clearwater pulled out of a shopping center on the south side of State Road 590 in his 2004 Subaru Outback. Deserre was making a turn onto State Road 590 when he saw Brown traveling towards him at a high rate of speed. Deserre stopped his vehicle in the roadway and tried backing up to avoid a collision; however, Brown lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into the driver side of Deserre's Subaru. Paramedics responded to the scene and transported Brown to St. Joseph's Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Deserre was not injured. Investigators say Brown's speed was a contributing factor in the crash. Impairment does not appear to be a factor. Criminal charges are pending for Brown.One injured in rollover crash in DunedinDUNEDIN Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a single vehicle rollover crash that occurred about 7:30 p.m. Jan. 19 on Milwaukee Avenue near the intersection of James Street in Dunedin. According to deputies assigned to the Major Accident investigation Team, an on-duty Largo Police of cer, conducting follow-up at Mease Dunedin Hospital, was parked on Milwaukee Avenue near Virginia Street when saw a 2010 Dodge Nitro strike an unoccupied 2012 GMC Arcadia parked on Milwaukee Avenue. Investigators say the driver of the Dodge Nitro did not stop after the collision and continued driving southbound on Milwaukee Avenue. The Largo Police of cer followed the vehicle and activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle. The Dodge Nitro continued southbound towards the intersection of James Street where the vehicle lost control, drove off the roadway and struck a tree. The collision caused the vehicle to rollover and come to nal rest on the roof. The driver of the Dodge Nitro, Jessie Myrick, 60, of Clearwater was trapped inside the vehicle. Paramedics responded and extricated Myrick from the vehicle. Myrick was transported to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg for life-threatening injuries. Investigators say Myrick did not show signs of impairment. They believe he suffered a medical episode that caused his erratic driving and both crashes. – Compiled by SUZETTE PORTERPhoto courtesy of TARPON SPRINGS PDA U.S. Postal Service mail carrier found this suspicious device in a parking lot at 309 E.

It seemed like a natural evolution to bring his two-hundred-plus members and seven chapters into our organization."

Health & Fitness 19A Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018 Health updatesLocal women’s app tracks deadly illnessST. PETERSBURG Two local women have developed an app to track symptoms and treatments of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, a life-threatening and debilitating disease that affects some 60 million worldwide. The app, Me v PMDD, was developed by Brett Buchert and her mother, Sheila Buchert, both of St. Petersburg, after Brett Buchert was diagnosed with PMDD. Brett Buchert experienced "the painful depression, breathless anxiety, unsolicited irritability, and suffocating hopelessness" of PMDD for more than a decade before she began tracking her symptoms and realized that they only arose in the premenstrual phase of my cycle and subsided during my period," she said in a press release. Initially, she used just pencil and paper to track her symptoms before realizing in May 2017 that an app could simplify that task. PMDD causes extreme depression, anxiety, mood swings, and rage, and can even lead to suicide. The app, developed with her mother, Sheila Buchert, a former national communications executive for the American Cancer Society, can rate the intensity of more than 30 symptoms on a 0-10 scale daily and see ratings on monthly graphs to understand how their symptoms change over their menstrual cycle, the distinguishing factor for a PMDD diagnosis. Users also can track menstrual cycles and various treatments within the app. Me v PMDD includes a Self-Love Journal and links to outside resources to cope with and treat PMDD, including the Gia Allemand Foundation for PMDD's life-saving peer support service. "Tracking my PMDD symptoms saved my life," Buchert said. "I got diagnosed, found treatment, and am now living a normal life, like I never thought possible, because of tracking. I need this app to continue my journey of healing. I'm hopeful that my story will become one among the millions of us who will bene t from the Me v PMDD app." Me v PMDD, featured in the January 2018 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, is available worldwide for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. It also can be downloaded at Plant Mease to host community health seminarsCLEARWATER Health experts from Morton Plant Mease will present a number of health seminars in February focusing on smoking cessation, heart and valve conditions, understanding atrial brillation, carbohydrates and coronary artery disease.

20A Outdoors Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018 The great outdoorsAngler's hoping for a rebound after cold snap A much welcomed warm up over the past few days has allowed shing to steadily improve. Last week's cold snap was the biggest we've seen since 2010 and the sh seemed to have come down with a serious case of lockjaw. With this week's warmer temperatures expect the sh to be a bit more cooperative. One bright spot that most inshore anglers are noticing is that the sheepshead have schooled up and are now in their spawning mode. Pass jetties, bridges and inland reefs will attract sheepshead by the masses for the next couple of months. A piece of shrimp or ddler crabs will produce limits of armorplated barnacle buster's. One thing to remember about sheepshead is that they don't yield a lot of meat for their size, so you may want to pass on the barely keepers and keep only the larger sh. Schools of silver trout can be found in 12 to 18 feet of water all along area beaches. Bucktail jigs from one quarter to three eighths of an ounce sink fast and get plenty of attention from the slivers. Other options include tandem rigged Love's Lures or live shrimp rigged on a slip oat. Decent numbers of red sh can be found working oyster bar points along mangrove shorelines in many of the no-motor zone areas from Terra Verde to Dunedin. Clear water conditions have made for awesome sight casting opportunities on the rising tide. Most of the sh have been medium in size, 18 to 24 inches, with the occasional big sh mixed in. The ip side to clean clear water is often spooky sh. Your best bet is to stay as far away from the oyster bar as possible while casting select shrimp suspended underneath a weighted oat towards the bar. Fish the spot for a few minutes; if nothings biting, move along to the next, capitalizing on the short window of opportunity you might have with high water conditions. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at To get a sh photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772.

Top ve diversions Photo by LOREY SEBASTIAN/YELLOW HAWK INC.Christian Bale, left, and Wes Studi star in “Hostiles.” Opening this weekend Western drama ‘Hostiles’ opens; scisaga concludes with ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following lms opening in wide release:‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’Genre: Action and science ction Cast: Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Ki Hong Lee, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter and Patricia Clarkson Director: Wes Ball Rated: PG-13 In “The Maze Runner,” Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) woke up as he was being delivered to the glade. He had no memory of who he was or why he’d become a member of a community of young people – among them Minho (Ki Hong Lee), lead maze runner; Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), a good friend and advisor, Gally (Will Poulter), a leader and adversary and Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), the only female glader, with whom Thomas may have a potentially dark history. Together they are trapped, surrounded by 200 foot walls and an ever-changing maze. Bad turns to worse when the gladers nally escape the maze only to discover they are in the middle of a desolate wasteland called The Scorch. In “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” Thomas and the surviving gladers met new allies while discovering clues about a mysterious group behind all of their “tests” – an organization known as WCKD. With “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” the motives of WCKD become clearer: Dr. Ava Paige, WCKD’s executive director, is close to what she believes is a cure for the disease known as the Flare, an infection that has decimated the world’s population. But the cure comes by sacri cing the few young people left in the world who are apparently immune. In order to free those who have been rounded up as test subjects, including his friend Minho, Thomas must now band together with fellow survivors, old and new, and take the battle to what may be the last remaining city and the nal stronghold of WCKD. He must break into the super-secure WKCD headquarters and try to bring down the organization from the inside. ‘Hostiles’Genre: Drama and western Cast: Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Jesse Plemons, Ben Foster, Wes Studi and Adam Beach Director: Scott Cooper Rated: R Set in 1892, “Hostiles” tells the story of a legendary army captain (Christian Bale), who, after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an isolated army outpost in New Mexico, to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Rosamund Pike), whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche and vicious outliers that they encounter along the way. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters.‘Kickboxer: Retaliation’Genre: Action Cast: Alain Moussi, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Christopher Lambert, Mike Tyson, Sara Malakul Lane, Jessica Jann, Hafr Jlus Bjrnsson, Steven Swadling and Sam Medina Director: Dimitri Logothetis Rated: R One year after nding vengeance for his murdered brother, MMA champion Kurt Sloane nds himself back in Thailand, kidnapped and imprisoned there by a powerful gangster (Christopher Lambert).

Tickets start at $49. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. With multi-platinum and gold records, strings of top 10 hits such as “Fishin’ in the Dark” and “Mr. Bojangles,” multiple Grammy, IBMA, CMA Awards and nominations, the band is often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in country rock and American roots music. Long before Americana music had a name, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band helped lead the charge, mixing elements of country, bluegrass, folk, mountain music, and rock & roll into a sound that celebrated the full range of American music. The guys were traditionalists and trendsetters, performing songs that nodded to the past while still pushing toward the future. Released in 1972 – just six years after the group formed in Southern California – Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” still stands as one of the most beloved albums in the country catalog, pairing the young band with legends like Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs and Mother Maybelle Carter. Many decades have passed since that milestone album’s release, with the members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band now enjoying their own legendary status. According to a biography provided by the Press House, the band continues to blur lines between genres. In 2016, the band released “Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Years,” a live CD recorded live at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The CD captures a group of longtime road warriors who’ve yet to lose their grit, joined onstage by musical artists such as John Prine, Sam Bush, Vince Gill, Jerry Jeff Walker, Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell, Byron House and Jerry Douglas. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (and early Dirt Band member) Jackson Browne joined in, along with longtime member Jimmy Ibbotson, while a sold-out crowd sings along in the background. From country classics to deep cuts, the tracklist finds bandmates Jeff Hanna (guitars/ vocals), Jimmie Fadden (drums/harmonica/vocals), Bob Carpenter (keyboards/ accordion/vocals) and John McEuen (banjo/ fiddle/guitar/mandolin) swapping harmonies, trading solos, and shining new light on a catalog of vital, vibrant music. Most recently, the band released a 21track greatest hits album titled “Fishin’ in the Dark” on Rhino Records. The February 2017 release includes the band’s biggest hits on both country and pop radio, such as “Mr. Bojangles,” “Dance Little Jean,” “Fishin’ in the Dark,” and more. The compilation also features many fan-favorites such as “Cadillac Ranch” and “Ripplin’ Waters.” Today, NGDB – featuring Hanna, Fadden and Carpenter – continue their non-stop touring in their 52nd year together.

Tickets start at $35. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. Rush helped shape both the folk revival in the 1960s and the renaissance of the 80s and 90s. Rush’s music has left its stamp on generations of musicians; his outstanding and versatile voice and a great sense of humor along with his guitar is world renowned. James Taylor calls him one of his heroes and main in uences. A gifted musician and performer, Rush’s shows offer a musical celebration he describes as a journey into the tradition and spectrum of what music has been, can be, and will become. With a distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice, Rush has become something of a legend. His shows are lled with the rib-aching laughter of terri c story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues. Rush began his musical career in the early ‘60s playing the Boston-area clubs while a Harvard student. The Club 47 was the agship of the coffee house fleet, and he was soon holding down a weekly spot there, learning from the legendary artists who came to play, honing his skills and growing into his talent. He had released two albums by the time he graduated. Rush displayed an uncanny knack for nding wonderful songs, and writing his own – many of which have become classics re-interpreted by new generations. In the early ‘70s, folk turned to folk-rock, and Rush, ever adaptable, saw more room to stretch out. Recording now for Columbia, he toured tirelessly with a five-man band, playing concerts across the country. Endless promotional tours, interviews, television appearances, and recording sessions added up to ve very successful but exhausting years, after which Tom decided to take a break and “recharge” his creative side at his New Hampshire farm. Rush returned with a splash in 1981, selling out Boston’s prestigious Symphony Hall in advance. Time off had not only rekindled Rush’s love of music, it had re-ignited music audiences’ love of Rush. He instinctively knew that his listeners were interested in both the old and the new, and set out to create a musical forum like the Club 47 of the early ‘60s to allow established artists and newcomers to share the same stage. In 1982, he tried it out at Symphony Hall. The show was such a hit it became an annual event, growing to ll two, then three nights, and the Club 47 series was born. Crafting concerts that combined well known artists such as Bonnie Raitt or Emmylou Harris with lesser known artists (at the time) such as Alison Krauss or Mark O’ Connor, Rush took the show on the road. From the ‘80s to the present day, Club 47 events have lled the nation’s nest halls to rave reviews, and have been broadcast as national specials on PBS and NPR. In 1999, Columbia/Legacy released a Tom Rush retrospective album that covers his recorded musical history from 1962 to the present, including tracks recorded for Columbia, Elektra, Prestige and his independent years. Entitled “The Very Best of Tom Rush: No Regrets,” the 17-track compilation includes as a bonus a brand new Tom Rush composition, “River Song,” which features vocal contributions from Grammy winners Shawn Colvin and Marc Cohn. Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ‘60s and the renaissance of the ‘80s and ‘90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical in uences. Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor and, in more recent years, his Club 47 concerts have brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were just beginning to build their own reputations.

8B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, January 25, 2018His only shot at freedom is to win an underground death match against a 400-pound killer enhanced with state-of-the-art drugs (Hafr Jlus Bjrnsson). To make it out alive, he seeks training unlike anything he’s ever endured, with the help of the legendary Master Durand (Jean-Claude Van Damme) and fellow prisoner Briggs (Mike Tyson).‘Please Stand By’Genre: Comedy and drama Cast: Dakota Fanning, Toni Collette, Alice Eve and Patton Oswalt Director: Ben Lewin Rated: PG-13 The world is a confusing place for Wendy. As a fiercely independent and brilliant young woman with autism, Wendy longs to leave the regimen of her group home and return to life with her sister’s family and their new baby. But rst she must prove herself. As a lover of all-things-Star Trek, Wendy writes fantasy stories in her free time. To her, people are an indecipherable code; and she uses her Star Trek lter to understand them. When a screenplay competition presents itself, Wendy decides to finish her 500-page Star Trek script and enter. Now the problem is getting it there. In order to meet the deadline, Wendy must travel hundreds of miles outside her protected boundaries to submit her script in person. With her little dog Pete in her purse and a few dollars in her pocket, Wendy boldly goes where she has never gone before. With her no-nonsense therapist and big sister Audrey following close behind, Wendy, with the help of some colorful friends she meets along the way, must learn how to follow her dream and nd her place in a world she hopes will accept her – just like everyone else.

Smith to be featured at DFAC Coffee and Conversation programDUNEDIN – The next Coffee and Conversation program, presented by the Sterling Society, will feature sculptor J. Harrison Smith and will take place Thursday, Feb. 8, noon, at Dunedin Fine Art Center, Admission to these relaxed talks is $5 for nonmembers and free for current DFAC members. For information, call 727-298-3322 or visit www. Smith will be talking about the lost wax bronze sculpture process. He will use props and a 7.5-minute video to give attendees a clear understanding of the process. He will also have a question and answer session with the audience. Smith began sculpting bread dough at the age of 3. He has maintained his ardent passion for sculpting ever since – drawing on the experiences of his life to capture the richness and depth of the human experience, which is of paramount importance to his work. As a father of ve, grandfather of six, and great-grandfather of two, his sculptures of children are some of his most powerfully moving pieces. CLEARWATER – Multiple Grammy Award winning jazz pianist and world-renowned singer Diana Krall will perform Tuesday, Jan. 30, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $58.75. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall. com. The concert stop is part of the third U.S. leg of Krall’s Turn Up the Quiet World Tour. The performer wrapped the second leg of her North American tour with two incredible nights at The Hollywood Bowl in August, along with a stellar performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The tour features material from “Turn Up the Quiet,” Krall’s new album, released in May 2017 on Verve Records. Krall also will be performing a mix of some of her fans’ favorites. “Turn Up the Quiet” is a co-production with Tommy LiPuma, producer of many of Krall’s most acclaimed albums, such as “All For You,” “The Look Of Love” and “Live In Paris.” The record was engineered and mixed by Al Schmitt at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, California. “Turn Up the Quiet” begins with the trio of Krall, bassist Christian McBride and guitarist Russell Malone, who take a marvelous ride through “Blue Skies.” This line-up returns near the close of the record to be at the very heart of Johnny Mercer’s “Dream” which is also graced by one of the album’s most beautifully chosen orchestrations by Alan Broadbent. A quintet with Karriem Riggins on drums and Tony Garnier on bass features the ddle of Stuart Duncan on “I’ll See You In My Dreams,” while Marc Ribot provides some of his most lyrical guitar playing with the band’s exquisite version of “Moonglow.” The third ensemble on “Turn Up the Quiet” – with guitarist Anthony Wilson, bassist John Clayton Jr. and drummer Jeff Hamilton – provides some of the most hushed and cinematic performances of the record. Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart.
