By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay Newspapers SEMINOLE American Legion Cross Bayou Post 252, 11433 Park Blvd., will host its rst Four Chaplains ceremony in honor of the 75th anniversary of the U.S.A.T. Dorchester sinking Saturday, Feb. 3, 10 a.m. The ceremony celebrates the lives of the Four Chaplains who were aboard the Dorchester when it was torpedoed and sunk on Feb. 3, 1943. These chaplains John P. Washington a Catholic priest, Alexander D. Goode a Jewish rabbi, George L. Fox, a Methodist minister and Clark V. Poling of the Reformed Church were killed along with 672 servicemen. "Two ministers, a rabbi and a priest it almost sounds like a joke," said Edward Lewis, Cross Bayou commander. "But this is a celebration of unity." The four chaplains sacri ced their lives by giving up their life vests to several of the servicemen on the Dorchester. "They gave their lives for those men," Lewis said. While many people know about the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and loss of life there, they are unaware of the Dorchester, he added. "One of our jobs as legionnaires is to inspire and educate people about stories they might not know about," Lewis said. "The Dorchester is one of these stories. When it went down, [more than] 670 men were lost in an instant." It was one of the largest losses of life at sea during World War II. Robert Vick, the American Legion's national chaplain, will officiate the non-denominational ceremony, which is open to the public.

A plaque, above, on the wall of the building marked the capsule's location. Unfortunately, what was found inside a Plexiglas container old newspapers, a record album and a roll of 8-millimeter lm, were in deteriorating condition. Some of the contents will be displayed at the Seminole Historical Museum. A new capsule may be buried in the near future. By TIFFANY RAZZANOTampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Mayor Leslie Waters provided the annual State of the City address at the Jan. 23 City Council meeting. She told the audience that she entitled the presentation "The city of Seminole is still booming." She added, "You only have to look around to see all of the positive residential and commercial development that is occurring throughout the community." Waters pointed to the city's approximately $17 million budget for 2018 that represents " scally responsible spending" while offering "exciting, diverse events" and "infrastructure improvements" all based on "a millage rate that has not increased in 11 years." The Seminole Fire Rescue's re ghter's pension fund is 89 percent funded. "One of the best funded levels in Florida," she said.The city has also experienced "unprecedented development and redevelopment throughout the community," she added.Not only have these developments helped to diversify Seminole's tax base, but they've added "$49 million taxable value to our city," Waters said. One of these developments, the 40-acre Seminole City Center, has more than 30 storefronts open "and more to come," she State of the CityMayor says: ‘The city of Seminole is still booming’Flu activity on the rise; moderate in Pinellas By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersHealth of cials are urging people to stay home if they think they have the u. Thirty-nine states are reporting high activity, including Florida, where cases are on the rise. Activity increased sharply and was above the peak amount from previous flu seasons, according to the Week 3: Jan. 14-20 report from the state Department of Health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported elevated activity that same week throughout the United States. DOH's report shows Pinellas County with moderate activity. The county was one of 59 counties with an increasing number of flu cases. The panhandle continued to experience the largest increases in activity. Fifty-two outbreaks were reported from Jan. 14-20 the largest number reported in a single week. Pinellas was among the counties reporting ve outbreaks or more. So far this season, 159 outbreaks have been reported in Florida, more than previous seasons. Most of the outbreaks occurred in facilities that serve adults age 65 and older, but outbreaks also were reported in daycare facilities, schools, health care facilities and jails. Visits to the emergency room by pregnant women and adults over 65 increased sharply and are above peak activity from previous seasons. Calvary Christian High School in Clearwater closed its doors Jan. 26 after 100 students and ve teachers called in sick due to u symptoms. A cleaning crew worked to disinfect and clean the school over the weekend, so classes could resume on Monday. The Florida Department of Health is recommending that sick people stay home until their fever is gone for at least 24 hours without the use of feverreducing medication. Everyone is urged to wash his or her hands often. Those who haven't had a u vaccine are asked to get one as soon as possible, especially people at high risk, including pregnant women, children and adults ages 65 and older. Flu can be deadly. Three children have died this season.

In his address, titled VA Reform: Modernization and Transformation, Bowman will discuss VA's efforts to modernize and transform the VA to meet veterans' needs in the 21st century. Following his remarks, Bowman will join a panel of local VA of cials and veteran advocates to discuss progress and challenges for the agency in this transformation. Reform of the VA has been a promise of presidential administrations since last reformed more than two decades ago. Yet, despite passage of a $16.3 billion VA Reform Act four years ago, challenges remain.

Robert "Bob" Swick, retired Marine Corps captain, chaplain and veterans advocate.

Dorchester was torpedoed during World War II. FOUR CHAPLAINS, from page 1A Crossing our ngersThousands of applications have gone in recently for the Pinellas County District Application Program. This program is done once a year where parents can put an application into the school of their choice for Magnet, Fundamental or Career Academy for the following year. It’s a lottery system and this year on Feb. 14 parents go back and log into their application and see if they were one of the lucky ones to get in. This application program has been going on for years, at least as long as my two girls have been in school and they are 12 and 13 now. The problem is there aren’t enough seats for every student to get their rst choice, so the district does it by a lottery system. This year I asked how many applications were put in for the schools in Pinellas and was told 11,215 unique students completed the application. That’s a lot of students! Some of the schools around our area where parents want their children to go are the fundamental schools like Madeira Beach Fundamental and Osceola High Fundamental. These schools are highly sought after by parents because there are almost no discipline problems at fundamental schools; if there is a discipline problem the student is not allowed to go to that school anymore. Also, parent involvement is mandatory at fundamental schools. There is also a stricter dress code. This year some 1,414 total applications were submitted for Madeira Beach K-5 and 1,106 for Madeira Beach 4-8 grades. You could almost make another school for the number of students that want to go to this school. I remember trying to get my kids into Madeira Beach Fundamental when they were in elementary school. One time we were number 450 on the list and another time number 3. We never got in and after a few years of trying, I decided I liked the school we were zoned for, which was Seminole Elementary, and didn’t want to move them. I am also very happy at their middle school, which is Osceola Middle. I hear great feedback about the fundamental schools from parents and from teachers. Teachers love working at fundamental schools. My brother-in-law Mark works at Thurgood Marshall Fundamental and says it’s so nice to not have the discipline problems you would have in the regular schools. Most teachers who are at fundamental schools don’t want to leave. Plus, parents are involved with the school because they have to be or their child can’t attend the school. Obviously, parents don’t mind or we wouldn’t see the numbers we are seeing to get into these schools. Osceola High Fundamental is another school many parents try to get their children into for high school. This year there are 1,225 applications. The school has a good reputation in the area and was the rst fundamental high school in Florida and one of only a handful in the country. My oldest daughter, Randi, is going into high school next year and it’s a big decision where you want your child to go their four years of high school. In my opinion, a school has a big impact on kids from the teachers to the staff to the other students. I want my child going to the school I think is best suited for them. I am thankful for this application process, I just wish it wasn’t a lottery system. A new school is opening up this year in Seminole I think would be the perfect t for Randi. It’s called Tech High. This school is smaller with 150 kids only being accepted for the freshman class and has exactly what she wants to do as far as a career. They offer a vet assisting program. They also offer other programs such as building trades and construction design, commercial and digital arts, electricity, game and simulation programming and nursing. The school is being built right now and will be ready for the 2018-2019 school year. It’s seems like an ideal place for my daughter, but there are 715 applications for just a few spots. I am praying and crossing my ngers she will get in. If you are a new parent or new to the area, you should really look into all the options you have as far as schooling for your child. I only highlighted a few schools; there are quite a few more with different opportunities for kids. There are so many choices today. A lot more than when I went to school. Parents do need to be involved, though, because if you aren’t you will miss the opportunity to at least apply. If you did apply, don’t forget on Feb. 14-21 to log on and see if your child got into the school of their choice. You must go online and accept your invitation to the school if you received an invitation. If you don’t accept it, you lose your spot. Even Pre-K3 and VPK students can put in an application. They have until Feb. 2. For more information about the District Application Program, log onto the Pinellas County School website at www.pcsb.org. Good luck!

4A Community Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018Madeira Beach may raise public parking feeMuseum presents exhibit on Washington’s spiesDUNEDIN – Starting on Tuesday, Feb. 20, following President’s Day, The Dunedin History Museum presents the AMC television production “Turn; The Story of Washington’s Spies.” The exhibit will present costumes, artifacts, photographs and other material used on the actual television production portraying the story of a group of individuals whose heroic acts during the American Revolution helped General George Washington defeat the British and gain American Independence. The exhibit is based on the 1986 novel “Washington’s Spies; The Story of America’s First Spy Ring,” by Alexander Rose. The television production is based on the story related to the Culper Spy Ring, whose members lived in Setauket, Long Island, during the British Occupation of New York and Long Island. The museum exhibit takes the visitor from the nave Nathan Hale who was captured as an American spy and executed, to the cunning Benjamin Tallmadge, who organized the ring in 1778, to the traitorous Benedict Arnold. The true story explains the background of the ve men and two women who helped gather the information and travel their secrets through the British patrols that surrounded Long Island and New York. These seven individuals were composed of a farmer, a Quaker, a sherman, barmaids and servants who were able to gather military secrets from the British and passed them on to Benjamin Tallmadge, who informed General Washington. One of the interesting stories relates to the capture of Major Andre a British spy who was caught with the secret forti cation information of the strategic fortress West Point on the Hudson River given to him by the traitorous Benedict Arnold, who had turned his back on his friend and commander George Washington. When captured, Andre was wearing civilian clothes and was later found guilty and hanged as a spy. Benedict Arnold escaped to New York City and became a British of cer to ght the Americans in the Carolinas. The story is told with the help of photographs and video from the production and actual historic material related to the real individuals involved in the Culper Ring. Visitors to the Museum will also see production costumes, battle material, paper goods, camp material, dinnerware, glassware and other props used for the show. A children’s interactive corner is included with the exhibit that allows children and their parents to dress in colonial costumes, use decoding material to write secret messages, draw pictures of colonial soldiers and camp life, and practice writing The Declaration of Independence with a quill pen set. A computer program also provides historic facts and paintings of the American Revolution to understand the importance of Washington and his armies to win the War for American Independence. On President’s Day, Monday, Feb. 19, teachers and home-school teachers are invited to participate in a program which will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the museum with lunch being provided. This program will include a lecture by American Revolution historian, Jack Warren, and a program related to the American Revolution as a learning tool for students through history and art. On Wednesday, Feb. 28, 6 p.m., at the Dunedin Public Library, museum director Vincent Luisi will give a special program on the True Story of the Culper Spy Ring. The museum exhibit is open to the public on regular museum hours from Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Teachers, with proper IDs, and veterans are admitted free for this exhibit. The admission fee is three dollars for adults and children under age 12 are free. The exhibit will remain at the museum until April 14. For further information, contact the museum at 727-736-1176.

But this past weekend, it was all about sand. With the NHL All-Star Game returning to Amalie Arena in Tampa, Clearwater Beach played host to the NHL All Star Beach Bash, a six-hour event at Pier 60 that featured over 400 youth hockey players competing on multiple rinks on the beach’s famed sugar sand, live music, a sand sculpture and an appearance by the most iconic trophy in sports, Lord Stanley’s Cup, which since 1893 has been awarded to the league’s champion at the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Cup’s appearance in Clearwater delighted the hockey fans that came from around the country for the All-Star weekend festivities, including Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos. “It was an honor for the city of Clearwater to have this iconic trophy on its sugar sand beaches for hockey fans and children of all ages so they could see,” Cretekos said after posing with several local lawmakers surrounding the 3-foot-tall trophy. “Let’s root for the Lightning to bring it back to Tampa Bay at the end of the regular NHL season!” While Cretekos was naturally cheering for the hometown team, there were plenty of fans at the Beach Bash rooting for other National Hockey League clubs and cities. Colorado residents Anna Tarassova and Andrei Tiovmentsev made the trip courtesy of their 11-year-old son, Dimitri, who won a one-on-one shootout competition sponsored by the Colorado Avalanche that included an all-expenses-paid trip for All-Star weekend. “Thanks to our son for being a really good hockey player!” Tarassova said as Dimitri competed in the beach tournaments. “Yes, he brought us here,” Tiovmentsev added. The family was quick to praise the NHL for facilitating the experience, which included tickets to the All-Star Game as well as the opportunity to enjoy the beach. “We had no idea it was going to be this big of a deal,” Tarassova said, noting they got to meet Lightning players Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov and Vladislav Namestnikov during an event the night before the Beach Bash. “And the sand here is amazing. So white and clean. The whole thing has been so exciting for us.” New Port Richey resident Orin Lincoln, whose wife, Denise, was coaching a Dayspring Academy youth squad, agreed. “The Lightning went over the top with what they’ve done here with supporting the schools and our community,” he said. “Awesome is the only word I can come up with.”Clearwater Beach the site of NHL All-Star Beach Bash Photo by JEFF ROSENFIELDMore than 400 youth hockey players participated in tournaments on Clearwater Beach as part of the NHL AllStar Beach Bash at Clearwater Beach on Jan. 27, 2018. By WAYNE AYERS TBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH – The city is looking at upping its hourly parking rate at city-owned lots, including John’s Pass Village. The increase would be 25 cents an hour, on Fridays and Saturdays only. City Planning Director Linda Portal proposed the parking rate hike along with other administrative fee increases at the Jan. 23 city commission workshop meeting. The last increase in the city parking fee was in 2015, when the rate was raised from $1.50 to $2. The charge would affect nonresidents only. City residents can park for free in city-owned lots. Raising the city parking rate can have a big impact on revenue, according to an analysis done by former Finance Director Vince Tenaglia in 2016. That study projected a $200,000 to $300,000 yearly increase in revenue for each 25-cent per hour increase, seven days a week. Finance Director Walter Pierce said the parking rate hike would help revenues and be competitive with what other communities charge. “We think there is room for an increase. It’s warranted,” Pierce said. “We’re trying to get revenue where we can to meet some of our needs.” He also said the new parking machines make it easier for visitors and “we would like a little bit of a return” on that new technology. Mayor Maggi Black said it was OK with her. “As long as we’re not gouging people, they will get used to it.” Commissioner Nancy Oakley was opposed. “I don’t want to see the parking rate raised,” she said. “We’ll hear from the people in John’s Pass, who will say people are paying more money to park and now they’re not spending as much money in their stores.” Commissioner Terry Lister, who supported an unsuccessful attempt to raise the rate to $2.50 in 2017, was not at the meeting. Portal proposed raising the fees for planning and development activities “so that we’re covering the cost of doing business.” She said revenue raised from these fees in the past “has not even come close to covering what it was costing the city to provide those services.” Portal also proposed raising the charge for site plan reviews of residential properties to bring it in line with the commercial property rate. “The residential rate is much lower than commercial. It makes no sense,” she said. Portal said the rate should be based on the size of the development, regardless of whether it is residential or commercial. When asked by Commissioner John Douthirt whether the proposed higher fees were comparable to other cities, Portal said “the planning fees went up quite a bit, but it’s still much cheaper than what’s being paid everywhere else.” The rate increases will be put on the agenda at a regular meeting for a vote by the commission. John’s Pass improvements, challengesThe John’s Pass power and lighting project has improved the lighting and safety in the area, Marina and Central Services Director Dave Marsicano said. The project is being totally paid for with a $340,000 state grant. The large Medjool palm trees have been up-lighted, and new light towers with speakers have been installed along the boardwalk, Marsicano said. Electrical power outlets have been added throughout the Village, bene tting the outdoor events and activities being held there. The Seafood Festival saved money by no longer having to bring in a generator for power, Marsicano said. An 18-foot light pole has also been installed at the east end of the boardwalk, where merchants said there was not enough light. While working on the project, the pavers in the Village were discovered to have been installed without the proper base, and are dropping several inches a year, Marsicano said. That is a potential safety hazard, Marsicano said, and plans are being made to x the problem in the future. The power and light project is now complete, Marsicano said. As a result, “the Boardwalk is de nitely safer, and the John’s Pass area is much safer than it was before.” Marsicano also said residents on Pelican Lane are requesting a sidewalk. That is not possible, he said, without the elimination of resident parking spaces, due to right of way issues. “The issue is parking,” Marsicano said. “If a sidewalk is put in, a lot of parking spots will be lost.” He did say he would take another look at a sidewalk and talk to the property owners, “but I don’t think I’m going to have much luck.” Marsicano said improvements are being made along Pelican Lane where the back sides of shops are facing the road. Trash barrels and dumpsters are being enclosed, and fences put around some properties. More needs to be done to clean up the area, he added. Marsicano said he plans to work with Portal on some code changes that would make business owners responsible for putting their trash containers in enclosures.

6A County Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018Pinellas commissioners concerned about CareerSource controversy By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners talked about the latest controversy surrounding a board for which they have responsibility to appoint members and approve the budget Jan. 23. Per an interlocal agreement with CareerSource Pinellas, the Commission is designated as the Chief Elected Official as required by the Personal Responsibility Reconciliation Act of 1996, Workforce Innovation Acts, applicable federal, state and local regulations, and federal workforce initiatives and laws. The agreement outlines the responsibilities of the county and CareerSource Pinellas and requires that one county commissioner be appointed to the CareerSource Board to serve as second vice-chair. County Commission Chair Ken Welch currently serves in that capacity. A series of recent articles by the Tampa Bay Times spotlighted some potential issues, including whether the nonpro t agency accurately reported the number of people it helped to get a job. The Times also reported on what appeared to be a disproportionate salary for the president and CEO of CareerSource Pinellas Ed Peachey, who also serves as president and CEO of CareerSource Tampa Bay in Hillsborough County. Since the articles were published, the state Inspector General has launched an investigation into both agencies and a federal investigation is reportedly in the works. County Commissioners questioned whether the county should begin its own investigation during the Jan. 23 meeting. Commissioners expressed concern Jan. 9 when they tabled making an appointment to the CareerSource Pinellas Board. Commissioners wanted more information about criteria used to select recommended board members. More than one person had applied to serve on the board through the county's website, but only one name came back from the CareerSource Board as a recommended candidate. Commissioners wanted to know why. The Times published an article the same day, which compared the appointment process to that of the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board, which underwent its own investigation last year. Due to issues unearthed by the Times, PCLLB will likely become under the authority of county government if a bill currently being considered in Tallahassee is approved. Peachey then sent a letter to the CareerSource Board outlining the process used to appoint board members. He wrote that the process had been in place since 2004, when the initial interlocal agreement with the county was approved. Peachey wrote that potential board members were approved by the WorkNet Board (the agency's former name) prior to submitting names to the county commission for appointment. "While this process took place, it had no signi cance to the appointment of the board member, as that authority rests solely with the BOCC (Board of County Commission)," Peachey wrote. Peachey objected to the comparison to the appointment process used for the PCLLB, saying that Welch had attended the CareerSource Executive Committee meeting and "voiced no concern over the process or the potential appointee." Peachey said he had "regretfully" reviewed the names of potential CareerSource board nominees, as requested by county staff and gave his opinion as to whether they met minimum standards per federal regulations. "Again, this is not part of my job description," Peachey wrote. "I thought I was doing the county a favor and it will not happen again." Peachey wrote that the BOCC had duciary responsibility for the actions of the CareerSource Board. He said the BOCC was supposed to be the "liaison/bridge between the two organizations, not the divider." He also said that CareerSource Pinellas had been "extremely successful over the last 14 years under the leadership of the president and CEO and the board of directors." He said audit reports had been clean and that state and federal monitoring requirements had been met and exceeded. In addition, Peachey asserted that CareerSource staff had brought in millions of dollars through the state and "significantly increased the number of job seekers and employers served." "We don't hear this lauded at the BOCC meeting nor do we read it (in) the papers," he wrote. Welch sent a letter Jan. 18 to the chair of the CareerSource Pinellas Board Aundre Green, asking for additional information about the appointment process. He also asked to modify the process due to the county commission's "heightened focus on transparency and improving the appointment process for organizations for which we have duciary responsibility and board appointment authority." The Times published another article two days later that said Peachey "was paid $464,000 in 2016, more than almost any other public gure in the area." The article also said that CareerSource is funded in part, by how many people it trains and places with employers. Board chair Green wrote a response to the Times article which disclaimed Peachey's salary amount. Green said Peachey had been paid $291,997 in 2016 for serving as CEO and president of both CareerSource agencies. Green provided a breakdown of Peachey's compensation and said his salary was funded 50 percent by CareerSource Pinellas and 50 percent by CareerSource Tampa Bay. Green speculated that the Times reporter had combined wage reports from the two agencies to get to the gure in the Jan. 20 article. Green also wrote that CareerSource does not receive funding based on placements, but instead the funding is based on a formula that includes a number of factors, some of which are labor force, total unemployed, economically disadvantaged, excess unemployed and others. However, the controversy didn't end with Green's explanation. The Times reported Jan. 22 that Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce had ended its relationship with CareerSource Pinellas after Sheriff Bob Gualtieri found out that "the job center told the state it had helped 624 sheriff's employees get hired since 2014." The sheriff reportedly told the Times "he has no records of CareerSource Pinellas ever sending his agency any potential job candidates to review, let alone help them get hired." The same Times' article revealed that both CareerSource agencies headed by Peachey were under investigation by the state Department of Equal Opportunity. On the same day (Jan. 23) that the county commission asked if it should ask for an investigation, the Times reported that the ruckus had reached the ears of federal lawmakers who also were calling for an investigation. Gov. Rick Scott and state lawmakers also were reportedly requesting action. Meanwhile, the county commission has asked its attorney and administrator to nd out how much authority it has in the matter and will continue to work with the CareerSource Board to improve the appointment process. "It is going to be an ongoing issue," Welch said. "It's a work in progress." Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

County 7A Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018 County newsCounty commissioners recognize Human Traf cking Awareness MonthCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Commission presented a proclamation Jan. 23 recognizing January as Human Traf cking Awareness Month. As part of continuing efforts to reduce human traf cking in Pinellas, the Commission highlighted the efforts of the county's Of ce of Human Rights.

Since the Commission adopted the ordinance, 1,700 locations have been reviewed and veri ed for compliance throughout the county to ensure the required signage is posted. Staff from Pinellas County Consumer Protection continues to coordinate with partnering agencies on compliance efforts, seek new avenues for community education and identify additional locations requiring signage. County residents are encouraged to take part in the ght against human traf cking in the community by reporting concerns to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce or other law enforcement, or to the National Human Traf cking Hotline by phone at 1-888-373-7888.

This declaration also will allow the state to continue providing important resources and assistance needed to best accommodate the needs of families impacted by the hurricane in Florida. Families displaced by Hurricane Maria are continuing to arrive in Florida. Scott said the state will continue to coordinate with FEMA to provide Maria survivors who have traveled to the state with important services such as housing assistance, crisis counseling and unemployment assistance.

8A County Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018Walking the talkPinellas County’s Eco Fun Festival teaches sustainable practices and practices what it teaches By LIBBY BOLLING TBN CorrespondentSustainable. The word is bandied about so frequently these days that it may beg the question: what does "sustainable" really mean? According to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, sustainable, as it relates to the environment, means involving methods that do not completely use up or damage natural resources. That's what organizers with Pinellas County Solid Waste say the Eco Fun Festival is all about, creating an event that walks the talk. "The goal is to teach residents small ways they can positively impact the environment," said Stephanie Watson, Solid Waste program supervisor for recycling outreach and lead organizer of the Eco Fun Festival. "These are small changes that can add up to big impacts." The annual event, held this year on Sunday, Feb. 25, is designed to teach sustainable techniques that people can use every day while learning about local environmental efforts, all presented in a fun, activity-driven atmosphere on the grounds of Bridgeway Acres Commons, a dedicated green space at the Solid Waste facility, 11418 34th St. N., Clearwater. Watson acknowledges that it seems paradoxical to hold an environmental event at what most people think of the Solid Waste facility a dump. "It's simple, really: Pinellas County does not operate a dump. We operate a 700-acre, award-winning and wildlife-friendly integrated solid waste management facility with the primary means of disposal being a garbage-fueled' power plant. The plant burns the garbage and the result is ash a 90 percent reduction in volume. The ash is buried in the land ll along with bulky items that can't go through the facility, like berglass boats. This process also generates enough electricity for 45,000 homes a day," she said. Watson says it is part of being good stewards of the only disposal facility in the county. But, she adds that Solid Waste has more to do. According to Watson, the more to do is teaching residents about the four Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle and recover. The latest statistics available from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reveal that, in 2013, Americans generated about 254 million tons of trash. That's enough trash to ll all of Tampa Bay to more than half its depth. Pinellas County's trash makes up 1.2 million tons of that total annual gure, but the Bridgeway Acres Waste-to-Energy facility can process just 1 million tons of garbage a year. Once the 1 million ton volume is reached, according to Watson, the remaining garbage must be put in the land ll a land ll with about 83 years of capacity left. By encouraging people to reduce the amount of household garbage they create, reusing materials when appropriate and recycling the right things, there will be less garbage and ash to put in the land ll and more years our land ll will be operable. Now, that seems like something everyone in Pinellas County can do to be sustainable. The Eco Fun Festival will offer guests the opportunity to learn about the direct connections between the choices they make every day at the trash can and recycle bin and how those choices impact their local environment. Visitors also will be able to take tours of the solid waste facility, including the tipping oor where all the trash generated in Pinellas County comes to be incinerated. They also will be able to learn about ways to reduce and reuse materials that would end up at the facility, as well as the right way to recycle and how Solid Waste recovers metals from the ash and sells them to fund recycling programs. Organizers have planned a lot of fun, too. There will be a Touch-a-Truck display for children and adults to enjoy, including WaterVentures' mobile freshwater spring exhibit that teaches responsible stewardship of Florida's resources. In addition, the walking excavator is back this year with its contortionist-like abilities to "walk" into any conceivable area to clear vegetation and debris, Pinellas County Mosquito Control's helicopter and airboat, Clearwater Marine Aquarium's rescue vehicle and a sewer inspection camera truck, to name a few. Exhibitors will include a variety of electric vehicles, Edible Peace Patch demonstrating composting food waste, Boyd Hill Nature Preserve offering live animal encounters, the Girl Scouts' new science, technology, engineering and math badge program, Pinellas County Environmental Management demonstrating water quality testing and its relationship to aquatic invertebrates, and Tampa Bay Watch demonstrating habitat restoration projects. Last year's Eco Fun Festival drew more than 1,200 visitors, and those visitors taught the organizing staff an important lesson about walking the sustainability talk. After doing some post-event "dumpster" diving of the event waste receptacles, the staff found that even though bins were labeled recyclables were in the trash bins and trash was in the recycling bins, demonstrating the confusion people experience when asked to make decisions between what to toss and what to recycle. "We found it was hard to make the best decision," said Watson. "So, this year, we will have educators at the point of disposal to talk to guests about what is recyclable and what is trash and help them to always make the right decision." That also led organizers to reach even further to practice what they preach. Realizing that generating any trash from the event presented them with an obvious challenge, they reviewed their event participation criteria and asked all exhibitors and food vendors to commit to using recycled materials where possible. Giant event maps will be staged in convenient areas and visitors will be encouraged to take a photo instead of a paper map. Another waste generator is the plastic water bottle. Staff is encouraging visitors to bring a reusable water bottle to ll at one of the multiple free tap water stations that will be placed around the event grounds. The goal: to model a low waste event. According to Watson, they've taken it even a step further by planning to conduct a formal waste analysis after this year's event. If they are successful, they hope to be certi ed as a zero-waste event by diverting 90 percent or more of the event's waste to recycling or composting. Watson said she and the staff are proud of the festival and are always excited to share their place of work with visitors. "We're very proud of our facility and it is a beautiful site for guests to come to. We're also very proud of what we do here and we're very excited to show guests how they can help make improvements for the environment and their lives."

Police 9A Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018 Police beatDetectives investigate death of inmate at Pinellas County JailCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives are investigating the death of an inmate at the county jail, 14400 49th St. N. in Clearwater. Stephen Gregory James, 29, of St. Petersburg died about 7:55 a.m. Jan. 28 inside his assigned housing area. Fellow inmates alerted jail staff that James was unresponsive in his assigned sleeping area. Detention and medical staff responded. Medical Staff performed CPR and paramedics responded to the jail and continued life saving measures until he was pronounced dead. Detectives say inmate James had a criminal history of drug abuse and drug related charges. There were no obvious signs of injuries on the inmate's person and no incidents of confrontation or use of force. His death does not appear to be suspicious in nature. James was arrested Jan. 18 by the Florida Department of Corrections, Probation and Parole. He was charged with violation of probation on drug related charges. The Medical Examiner's Of ce will conduct an autopsy to determine cause and manner of death.Suspect arrested in Jan. 26 shooting in ClearwaterCLEARWATER A 22-year-old Winter Haven man was arrested about 4 a.m. Jan. 28 on second-degree murder charges in connection with the homicide of a Clearwater man. Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies responded to a home on Suffolk Drive in unincorporated Clearwater about 4:11 a.m. Jan. 26 regarding reports of gunshots. Detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit say a citizen heard the gunshots and reported it to deputies. A male victim was found at the end of the driveway. The victim, identified as Jesse D. Cairo, 22, who lived at the home, was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died. Detectives identi ed Dale Eugene Washington as a suspect and located him in Orlando. With the help of Polk County and Orange County sheriff's of ces, Washington was taken into custody and booked into the Orange County Jail. He will be brought back to Pinellas County to face charges.Deputies arrest man after Lealman Fire District chief’s vehicle stolenLEALMAN Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 31-year-old St. Petersburg man Jan. 27 after he reportedly stole a Lealman Fire District chief's vehicle and evaded deputies. Michael James Chick was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on charges of burglary to an occupied structure; fleeing and eluding; grand theft auto; unlawful transmission on police or re radio frequency; and driving with a suspended license (second offense). Bail was set at $51,000. Deputies responded to Lealman Fire District Station 18, 4150 66th St. N. in St. Petersburg, about 1:15 p.m. in reference to a report of a stolen 2014 Ford Expedition. Deputies located the vehicle in the area of Park Street North and 84th Lane where they attempted to stop the vehicle driven by Chick, who initially refused to stop for deputies. Deputies say they attempted low speed interventions including Stop Stick deployment and were unsuccessful because of Chick's evasive actions. Deputies say Pinellas County ight support arrived and deputies were able to follow from a safe distance. Deputies say Chick appeared to stop several times but then continued to evade deputies. Chick eventually stopped at the Arby's restaurant on 6640 Ulmerton Road in Largo. Deputies took Chick into custody when he left the vehicle and attempted to enter the Arby's restaurant. Deputies say the vehicle sustained minor damage.Palm Harbor teacher charged with sexual battery on a 16-year-oldPALM HARBOR A teacher at Palm Harbor University High School is being held in the Pinellas County Jail on $100,000 bail on charges of sexual battery on a 16-year-old. Matthew Franklin Pinder, 43, was arrested at 1 p.m. Jan. 24 at the high school. He has since resigned. Detectives with the sheriff's Crimes Against Children Unit began their investigation Nov. 11 after the victim, who is now age 24, informed a school of cial of past inappropriate sexual contact with Pinder. The school of cial then told the school resource deputy and school of cials. Detectives said the victim was 16-years-old and a student at Calvary Christian High School in Clearwater when the alleged crime occurred on or about Nov. 1, 2009. Pinder was a teacher at the school and serving as the victim's mentor. Detectives said Pinder admitted to engaging in inappropriate activity with the 16-year-old at least two times. Detectives believe there may be more victims and are requesting the public to come forward with any information regarding inappropriate contact Pinder may have had with other children. Pinder was employed at Indian Rocks Christian School from 2000 to 2002 and Calvary Christian High School from 2002 to 2004. Pinder then moved to Kentucky. He returned to Pinellas County and worked as a teacher at Calvary Christian High School from 2009 to 2011. Pinder has been employed as a teacher at Palm Harbor University High School since 2011.

10A Health & Fitness Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018monitoring that statistic as u activity continues to rise. As of Jan. 6, 310 people had died from flu or pneumonia, which is a common complication of the u. Symptoms of u include body aches and pain; cough and chest discomfort; early and signi cant exhaustion; fatigue and weakness that may last two-three weeks; headache; fever of 102104 degree for three to four days; stuffy nose, sneezing and sore throat. It is possible to have respiratory symptoms without a fever. Most people don't need to see a doctor if they get the u; however, if your symptoms get worse or you run a high fever for more than a few days, it would be best to seek out medical attention. People with u or think they might have u, should refrain from sharing cups and eating utensils and wash their hands often, scrubbing for at least 20 seconds. Drink plenty of uids and get lots of rest. Over-the-counter cold or cough medicine could help, but check with a doctor before taking aspirins. Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help with fever and aches. Stay home and limit contact with others. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use your elbow, or better yet a tissue. Throw the tissue away. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Disinfect surfaces and objects that have flu germs. Healthy people should avoid close contact with sick people.Antivirals can be used to treat the flu and may make the illness milder and shorten the time you are sick. They also might prevent complications, such as pneumonia. For people at high risk, taking an anti-viral could mean the difference between having a mild illness or a serious condition that could result in hospitalization.Anti-viral drugs work best if started within two days of getting the u, but they can still help if started later, especially for those at high risk. Flu season is likely to continue for another few weeks. More people will get sick and more will die. Health of cials are asking everyone to help prevent the spread. An average of 36,000 die each year from the flu, and 114,000 are hospitalized due to flu complications. Florida DOH reminds the public, "Anyone can get the flu (even healthy people), and serious problems can happen at any age." Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at sporter@TBNweekly.com. FLU, from page 1A Health updatesWalmart stores to host blood driveFebruary is American Heart Month.

The games offer seniors ages 50 and older the opportunity to meet and compete in over 65 separate sporting events. Amateur athletes from around the county and their visiting friends and family from around the country gather to see who can outdo the other. Some compete for the medals. Some compete to better their personal best. Some compete to stay t. Some compete to try a new sport, and some compete just for the fun of it. So you think you can sink ve basketballs in a row? Prove it. Ever drop a 20-foot putt in the cup? You'll get six tries to do it or come closer to the cup than any of the other competitors. Can you throw a football through a 2-foot hole or kick a soccer ball between the poles? Can you walk quickly for almost a mile? How fast can you swim or run? How far can you jump or throw? If you think you don't stand a chance against some of the younger jocks out there, not to worry. You only compete against people in your own five-year age group. Think you're too old? Think again. Previous Games have had competitors in their 80s, 90s and at times over 100 and sometimes they outperform those 20 and 30 years younger! Last year a gentleman did softball skills, including running the bases, while dragging his wheeled oxygen tank behind him. He won a medal, too. Not all the competition requires physical strength.

Although our current weather pattern is seemingly ushering in three cold fronts a week, the cold fronts thankfully haven't been as strong as they were at the beginning of the month. With that said, water temperatures are slowly rising and brief warm-ups after the fronts pass through have helped for more consistent action than a couple of weeks ago. Speckled trout shing is holding strong in areas like Fort DeSoto and St. Joseph's Sound, sh areas around the main channel that have a bit of grass on the bottom. It seems as if the trout are congregated more heavily in that deeper water. Also with the cooler water plenty of sh have moved into the canals around the passes. Colder overcast days will have the trout hunkering down on the bottom in the middle of the canals. Try shing shad tail jigs in a variety of colors or a free lined shrimp for best results. This week's full moon should have the sheepshead preparing to spawn. Masses of sheepshead will make their migration toward near shore structures all throughout Tampa Bay and reefs and rock piles just off our beaches. Look for inland bridges and pass jetties to really start to load up with huge populations of sheepshead over the next couple of weeks. Anglers should target the sheepies with small pieces of fresh shrimp or ddler crabs. It's always a good idea to do some chumming with some fresh barnacles that you can scrape from any of the pilings at low tide. Daytime dock shing has been reliable when the wind is too high to sh the ats. Live shrimp either free-lined or shed on the bottom will work for any predators under the dock. Finding productive docks can take many trips of trial and error. A quicker way to nd a good dock is at night. Lighted docks that consistently hold sh at night also will hold sh during the day. Use these docks as starting points, and try some of the surrounding docks, as sh are likely to spread out a little during the day. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail. com.

Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018I'm writing to voice my opposition to a measure now before the Constitutional Revision Commission: To amend the state constitution to establish the right of all abused, neglected and abandoned children to their own attorneys in dependency court. After more than 40 years in law enforcement including 26 as the statewide coordinator of FDLE's Crimes Against Children Program I've seen too many cases where children and adolescents had their own attorneys, with the result that the dependency court could not adequately protect the child. And so, I see great potential for this measure to harm children, not help them. Why? Because the truth is that children love their parents, and the vast majority of my child victims no matter how badly they'd been abused wanted to go home even if it placed them in danger. I've had kids say to me, I love my dad. I just wish he'd stop doing what he's doing.'" And so, when you put an attorney in the midst of this, it's not in the best interests of kids as far as I'm concerned. When the kids do go home or somewhere else they're at risk, they often instruct the attorney not to tell the judge. I've dealt with attorneys who actually hid kids' whereabouts while they were in touch with the abusive parents and having them change their stories. And I know dependency judges who have had the same experience many times. The truth is that abused children already have access to attorneys. For one thing, the dependency judge can appoint them. For another, the Legislature approved a measure in 2014 to have children with special needs represented by attorneys on a registry; a bill that would incentivize more attorneys to do this pro bono is before the Legislature now. Above all, the Guardian ad Litem model we already have in Florida law provides children with a three-person team that includes a Best Interest Attorney; a GAL volunteer who advocates for the child in court, school, medical settings and more; and a case advocate manager who knows local resources and helps the volunteer gain access to services for the children. In short, the Guardian ad Litem Program acts as the judge's eyes and ears, providing all the information they believe the judge needs to make decisions that are in the child's best interest. I have investigated too many child homicides to allow dependent children to take still more risks. Vote NO on Proposal 40, and let the courts do their jobs.

People around the world may complain about it, but few people do anything to change it. Like old man river, it just keeps rolling along. Just when you think the composers have written every possible song about loneliness, someone comes up with a new one. But now the British have decided to face loneliness full on. The government has established a Ministry of Loneliness, and appointed a woman, Tracey Crouch, to ll the post. According to a piece in Forbes Magazine, research in the U.K. shows that 9 million Brits, or possibly more, always or often feel lonely. Things aren't much better here in the USA. Our loneliness rates have doubled since the 1980s. One high ranking expert has said loneliness has reached epidemic proportions. Health problems tied to loneliness include sleeplessness, substance abuse, depression and suicide. I would add that huge numbers of unwise love affairs and marriages are surely the result of little more than the fear of being alone. Thousands of years ago, humans communicated with each other via smoke signals or drums. Then came spoken language, writing, mail, the printing press, the telegraph, telephone, radio waves and Morse code, radio voice broadcasting, television, the computer, the internet and Facebook. This poses the question: With so many ways for people to be in touch with each other, how can anyone ever feel lonely? The answer to that, of course, is that loneliness is often more than simple connectedness with another human being. It can take various forms. One is the feeling of being unwanted. Author Amy Tan said it is the fear of never being able to share who we really are. Actress Audrey Hepburn said, "I don't want to BE alone. I just want to be LET alone." Is loneliness the same as solitude? Hardly. Loneliness is usually connected with pain. But solitude has been de ned as the glory of being alone. I often think of celebrities and others who, upon achieving wealth and fame, lose no time in buying a home in Montana or Alaska just to achieve aloneness. What are some of the causes of loneliness? Simply being alive is a big one. If you have never experienced loneliness, you may actually be a zombie. Check in with your doctor. Another source of loneliness is excessive self-concern. That includes not giving two whoops in hell about other people, but also not caring much about ideas and the problems that humankind faces. Loneliness can be treated (if not defeated) in dozens of ways. Sex, alcohol, music, bungeejumping, knitting, and volunteering at hospice centers are a few approaches that have been tried. Take any job, such as a complaint desk, that puts you in constant contact with the general public. A few days of that will make you so glad to be alone you will weep in gratitude. I may be mistaken, but I'd guess that genuinely religious persons suffer as little from loneliness as any other group on earth. I'm not religious myself, but I often check in with some of the TV channels that show pastors of various (mostly Christian) denominations addressing huge gatherings of worshippers. A common theme set forth is that God is the answer to every problem. If so, then faith in God must be or may be the answer to loneliness. On the other hand, many religions have a track record of insisting that their beliefs are the only right ones, and that all other faiths are mistaken and should be ignored. Can you imagine any greater highway to worldwide contention and the loneliness that must surely follow? Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net.Save us from spring forward, fall backThe ritual of spring forward, fall back has always seemed stupid to me. Just settle on a single time schedule and stick with it daylight saving, Eastern Standard, whatever. The bouncing back and forth every few months is a pain in the neck, not to mention disorienting. You have to change all the clocks and watches in your house, car, and wherever. Schedules and sleep patterns get disrupted during the changeovers, and for what? That's why I'm hopeful about a ploy from state Sen. Greg Steube to get Florida united under Eastern Standard Time, and then to observe daylight saving time all year. He attached an amendment to SB 585 to bring the western part of Florida, which is currently in the Central time zone, in line with the rest of the state. He is right about the confusion that can result from someone in Jacksonville trying to do business with someone in Pensacola, since the cities are in the same state but different time zones. We need a consistent way of telling the time. I know the arguments against daylight saving particularly the one that says school kids can have to wait in the dark for their morning bus. Objection noted. That's why I wouldn't raise a hissy t if we just stuck with standard time. I'd prefer to stay under daylight saving, but it's no big deal either way. As with most things, there have been a lot of studies that reach contradictory conclusions about which time-keeping system is best. The website Smart Asset reported one study said daylight savings cost the nation $1.7 billion annually, partly because we spend time doing things like changing clocks than instead of something more productive, like watching Property Brothers or something. Other studies put the actual cost much lower. I couldn't care less about the cost estimates. That's all accounting gobbledygook anyway. How about we make the change just because it seems like the thing to do? Danny McAuliffe reported for Florida Politics that Steube got the idea during a trip to his barber shop, which is where all great ideas are hatched. Patrons talked about how changing back and forth between time standards messes with school kids. Well, it can be confusing. I'll also admit that those rst few days when we "fall back" and it gets dark around 5 p.m. are really depressing. That's not what we need in the Sunshine State. If this gets past the Legislature, it will take an act of Congress to make the change of cial. Could be a problem, since Congress doesn't ever seem to guratively know the time of the day, let alone how to come together and pass a commonsense change. We can hope though. In the meantime, set your alarms for March 11. That's when daylight saving time begins again. Spring forward. With any luck, maybe we won't have to fall back again.

No letters from candidates or their supporters will be published after March 1.Election letters policy Joe Henderson Why we need Mayor KaticaEditor: Gary H. Katica and his lovely wife, Mary, moved to Belleair in 1984. He rst served as a town commissioner in 2000 and was elected mayor in 2006. As a young man, Gary served with distinction in the United States Air Force in Korea. It would be hard to overstate the contributions of Mayor Katica to our town. He handled the dif culties surrounding the closing of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel with real skill. The disappearance of such a landmark was a psychological blow to all. The loss of revenue to Belleair required many long and careful meetings with the commissioners and the town manager in order to restructure the town's nances. Gary's hard push to improve Belleair's infrastructure is well known. A highlight of that effort was the changing of the original plan for Belleair's "jewel," our town's bluff. This original plan could have weakened the bluff by mandating the cutting of several trenches through it in an effort to provide proper drainage. It also would have required a massive amount of ll being brought into our town. It was estimated that it would have taken 5,500 truckloads of ll coming and going on town infrastructure to accomplish this rst plan. Gary said, "No!" A superior plan was adopted that buried the drainage pipes under Bayview Drive. They funneled the water to a single exit to the Intracoastal at the south end of the bluff. Gary was also instrumental in the town's purchase of the Belleview Biltmore Golf Course from the Ades brothers. When Mr. Dan Doyle, Jr. later offered to purchase and massively improve the property, everything worked out very neatly. Belleair will have another "showstopper" when the old course reopens next year as the Pelican Golf Course. In order for towns to be successful, it is necessary to build great relationships among their many departments. Gary's role in this for Belleair should not be underestimated. Mutual respect in our town government runs both upward and downward, which is a mark of good leadership. A good leader sets the course and backs his men and women as they carry out their respective tasks. Gary does all of this and more. There will be lots of "issues" in the future, as there always are. Let's reelect a man who has been tested and found solid, both in character and ability to solve all manner of problems. Whether he's working behind a desk or socializing at all of our town's functions, you can count on Gary to be there. Gary Katica is affectionately called by one and all, "Mr. Mayor." Let's keep it that way! Mr. and Mrs. Daniel H. Hartshorne BelleairMayor should work for residents’ happinessRe: ‘Plenty of questions remain for West Bay project,’ Largo Leader, Jan. 17 Editor: I nd the reaction of Largo Mayor Woody Brown typical of what I have seen of Largo itself in the ve plus years I have lived here. He showed he does not understand his relation to the public when he said all options should be explored, even those that would anger the people. This is typical of the arrogance I have seen in politicians around the country in general, and locally in particular. I understand that it is a valid function of government to encourage businesses, but what I don't understand is the willingness to inconvenience the general public to do it. He is not interested in spending money to improve the ow of traf c on the road. Apparently, he would gladly slow them down to a crawl everyday if it would increase revenue that would give them even more capability to control the lives of the residents. Taking lanes away from people on their way to the beach would only make them more anxious to get through the aggravation of the area. Having said that, Option 2 could be an improvement by keeping bicyclists separated from the cars. It would keep them safer and prevent them from impeding traf c ow. So how about the mayor and his associates look at doing things the public would be happy with rather than imposing some kind of scheme to inconvenience the taxpayers. Larry Miller Largo

Schools 15A Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018 School newsSeminole High chosen as a model school SEMINOLE Seminole High School has been chosen by the International Center for Leadership in Education as a 2018 Model School. As a result of the recognition, Seminole High School will present at the annual Model Schools Conference to be held in Orlando in June. Seminole High was chosen for the positive learning gains it achieved through the school's commitment to career and college readiness and the strong relationships created through its academy model. Seminole High School is the second school in Pinellas to be recognized by ICLE. Clearwater High School has achieved the recognition three times. The award recognizes schools that are high-performing and demonstrate rapid improvement. Pinellas schools hold groundbreaking ceremoniesThree Pinellas County schools recently held groundbreaking ceremonies. The school district held a groundbreaking ceremony for its newest high school, Pinellas Technical High School, 12611 86th Ave. N., Seminole, on Jan. 22.

Opening this weekend Academy Award winner Helen Mirren stars as Sarah Winchester in horror lm Winchester' Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following lm opening in wide release:‘Winchester’Genre: Horror Cast: Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook, Angus Sampson and Finn Scicluna-O’Prey Directors: Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig Rated: PG-13 On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester (Academy Award winner Helen Mirren), heiress to the Winchester fortune, it is a house that knows no end. Constructed in an incessant 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week mania for decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the troubled Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke) whom she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters.‘A Fantastic Woman’Genre: Drama Cast: Daniela Vega and Francisco Reyes Director: Sebastin Lelio Rated: R Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. After celebrating Marina’s birthday one evening, Orlando falls seriously ill. Marina rushes him to the emergency room, but he passes away just after arriving at the hospital. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly Marina is treated with suspicion. The doctors and Orlando’s family don’t trust her. A woman detective investigates Marina to see if she was involved in his death. Orlando’s ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral. And to make matters worse, Orlando’s son threatens to throw Marina out of the at she shared with Orlando.

Entertianment 3B Seminole Beacon, February 1, 2018Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando’s family, her sexual identity is an aberration, a perversion. So, Marina struggles for the right to be herself. She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime ghting just to become the woman she is now – a complex, strong and forthright woman.‘Bilal: A New Breed of Hero’Genre: Action, animation and adventure Cast: Ian McShane, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jacob Latimore, China Anne McClain, Cynthia Kaye McWilliams, Thomas Ian Nicolas and Michael Gross Directors: Khurram H. Alavi and Ayman Jamal Rated: PG-13 1,400 years ago, Bilal, a 7-yearold boy, with a dream of becoming a great warrior, is abducted into slavery with his sister and taken to a land far away from his home. He is thrown into a world where corruption and injustice rule all. Throughout his life he undergoes many hardships, through which he discovers an inner strength he did not realize he possessed. Through these experiences, Bilal comes to realize that if he is brave enough to raise his voice and choose his own path – everything becomes possible. Through his courage, he frees himself and his community. It is through the power of his voice and faith that his lifelong dream of freedom comes true. Bilal grows into a man who will inspire the world. OPENING, from page 1B ST. PETERSBURG – Some of the world’s most stellar wines will ow and be auctioned during Wine Weekend St. Pete 2018, running Feb. 2-4 in St. Petersburg.

It is the largest fundraising event for the museum representing all that is exquisite, including an elegant wine pairing dinner, an exciting auction and a celebratory champagne brunch as well as optional events. This year’s theme is “Be Seduced,” re ecting the opulence of the reign of Louis XV of France – a pinnacle of art, architecture, and lavish parties. The weekend begins Friday, Feb. 2, in the museum with Ftes Versailles for sponsors and VIPs, bringing back the masked balls of Louis XV and the Palace of Versailles. Award-winning chefs Bernard Guillas of the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club in California and Tyson Grant of the Parkshore Grill in St. Petersburg will prepare a ve-star dinner of French cuisine. Louis Latour Grand and Premier Cru wines will be served. The International Wine Auction follows on Saturday, Feb. 3. A wine tasting and auction preview will begin at 2 p.m., offering attendees an opportunity to sip wines and champagnes as they preview the International Wine Auction under the tent on the North Lawn of the Museum of Fine Arts. The auction will follow at 4 p.m. Participants may bid on rare wines, ne jewelry and luxury trips. Russell Rhodes, co-anchor of “Good Day, Tampa Bay” on FOX 13, will be the emcee and Jeffrey Burchard, Tom DuPont, and Elizabeth Flower will serve as the auctioneers. To view auction lots, visit one. bidpal.net/wineweekend/browse/all.

The museum is at 255 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg.‘Finest wine auction of the season’The Margaret Acheson Stuart Society, the Museum of Fine Art’s fundraising auxiliary, has assembled “the nest wine auction of the season,” according to a press release from the museum. Patricia Rossignol has returned as chair. Rossignol has chaired (2013) and co-chaired (2015) two previous Wine Weekends, including “Cheers to 50 Years,” which celebrated the museum’s 50th anniversary in 2015. Both set event fundraising records for the MFA. Gail Phares, Stuart Society president that year, is the vice chair, along with Dawn Zachman. Carol Treichel and Jason Champion are coordinating the international auction. Maggi McQueen is the current Stuart Society president. The historic and acclaimed Maison Louis Latour, located in Burgundy, France, is the guest vintner. This is the rst time the winery has been featured at a charity event in the Tampa Bay area. Bernard Retornaz, president of the North American subsidiary, Louis Latour Inc., will introduce Grand Cru and Premier Cru wines at the Friday night masked ball. Since its founding in 1797, Maison Louis Latour has been one of France’s treasures. Louis-Fabrice Latour represents the 11th generation of the family to maintain great traditions and to chart the future. He follows in the footsteps of his distinguished father Louis Latour, who passed away in 2016. The son was featured in the July 31, 2017, issue of Wine Spectator, which praised him on the cover as “Prince of Burgundy.” Maison Louis Latour has a domaine of 125 acres and the largest collection of Grand Cru Vineyards in France. The Winery Corton Grancey was built in 1834 and is one of the country’s oldest and most cherished. Award-winning chefs recruited for event Event organizers have announced that Bernard Guillas of the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club in California and Tyson Grant of the Parkshore Grill in St. Petersburg will prepare a ve-star dinner of French cuisine at the Feb. 2 Ftes Versailles for sponsors and VIPs. Guillas has described a good chef as “a sorcerer who dispenses happiness on a plate.” He began his formal training in 1978 at Le Bretagne Restaurant in Questembert, France, where he apprenticed with the legendary Georges Paineau. He expanded his artistry at some of France’s leading restaurants. In 1984, he was appointed chef tournant, chef saucier, and sous chef under Pierre Chambrin, former White House executive chef, at Maison Blanche in Washington, D.C. He relocated to San Diego in 1989, serving ve years as chef de cuisine at the Grant Grill in the historic U.S. Grant Hotel. Guillas was inducted into the American Chefs’ Hall of Fame by the International Restaurant & Hospitality Rating Bureau, one of only 14 to be so honored. His rst cookbook, Flying Pans, was named a Top 10 Cookbook in America at the 2010 Book Expo America. It also received two Book of the Year awards from the International Association of Culinary Professionals in the Chefs and Restaurants category and as the People’s Choice. Chef Guillas has made numerous television and radio appearances, including with Martha Stewart and on the “Rising Chef” series on PBS. He has been invited to serve as guest chef at the prestigious James Beard House in New York for many special occasions. With Grant’s creativity and innovation, the Parkshore Grill on Beach Drive has become a dining destination. He has been named Best Chef multiple times by area publications and has earned the restaurant a Florida Trend Golden Spoon Award and coveted Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence. He has also served as guest chef for a wealth of fundraisers, including at the MFA, and has generously supported many nonpro ts. With his wife Sommer, Chef Grant created Zoe’s Edible Garden at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in memory of their daughter. He has also served as Chef Ambassador to Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin’s Healthy St. Pete project. Grant has been a leader in making St. Petersburg an emerging city for ne food and wine.Wine Weekend St. Pete 2018Stellar wines, culinary delights, dancing & live music all play a part in a fundraiser for Museum of Fine Arts Bernard Guillas Doors Open at 11:00am Early Bird Games Begin at Noon Bright, Clean, Friendly Environment!!
