Impressed by the group's response, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recognized Seminole CERT's work in its December newsletter. The Seminole CERT program launched in 2015, training more than 115 people since its first class, said Brad Dykens, SFR's community preparedness and life safety coordinator. Though members of the group have assisted with nonemergency community events and responded to re ghter rehabilitation calls, Hurricane Irma "was the very rst test we've had," Dykens said. "That's what impressed FEMA so much." Following Irma, he responded to a survey distributed by FEMA asking Florida CERT programs about their hurricane efforts. "They replied quickly, and said, You did this, this and this? Holy cow,'" Dykens said. "[CERT members] helped prepare [for the hurricane,] they helped respond to and mitigate problems, and they helped with recovery. They saw our needs and members dove right in." Prior to the storm, CERT members helped to transport wheelchair bound residents and connected seniors to the busses they needed to take to shelters and other safe havens. After Irma, their work included distributing supplies, surveying neighborhoods for power outages and manning CERT program honored Photos courtesy of SEMINOLE FIRE RESCUEMembers of Seminole’s Community Emergency Response Team train for a variety of disaster and emergency scenarios throughout the year.

PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board of Directors said yes Jan. 29 to spending up to $150,000 on autonomous vehicle feasibility studies and a demonstration project. PSTA Transit Planner Jacob Labutka said engineering rms were interested in evaluating the use of autonomous vehicles for PSTA. He said that due to the quickly evolving development of AV technology, rms are looking for market experience. Two rms have proposed to provide their services as a grant to PSTA. The rst rm is AECOM, headquartered in Los Angeles, which has been providing in-kind consulting services to develop an AV demonstration project in downtown St. Petersburg. Labutka said the project could launch as early as spring 2018 and would likely run from the Vinoy Hotel, 501 Fifth Ave. NE, to the Dal’ Museum, 1 Dal’ Blvd. PSTA's share of the cost would be $100,000. The second is a Tampa-based firm. Stantec would develop an AV feasibility study and concept plan with a geographic focus in northern Pinellas, most likely Clearwater Beach, Dunedin and Tarpon Springs. PSTA's cost would be $50,000.

See CERT, page 3A By TIFFANY RAZZANOTampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE At its Feb. 20 meeting, the St. Petersburg College Board of Trustees will decide whether to partner with the Seminole Chamber of Commerce on the construction of a new community building at its Seminole campus. The building, which will be funded by a $500,000 grant from the Edward J. and Vivian E. Lurie Charitable Foundation, was originally set to be built through a partnership between the chamber and the city of Seminole at Waterfront Park on Park Boulevard. This deal fell through last year when the city learned that grant restrictions would make it difficult to utilize the property for anything other than outdoor recreational use. "[SPC] is the perfect place to put it," said Roger Edelman, chamber president. "It was the perfect solution to the problem. Having it at the college is an incredible opportunity for students and for the chamber." He also said that he believes this to be the rst collaboration of this kind between a college and a chamber in the country. "So we're very excited about it," he said. The building will serve as a permanent home for the chamber, with space for the city's various civic organizations and a community room,. The space also will be utilized by the college for various uses, At the box of ce"Fifty Shades Freed" starring Dakota Johnson to open this week.

Seminole 3A Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018the Citizen Information Center set up at Seminole City Hall. "They were on the frontlines with connecting with residents," Dykens said. Beyond that, CERT members, knowledgeable about storm updates and storm emergency skills, stepped up as leaders within their own neighborhoods, he said, often taking charge. "An informed resident that can handle themselves is one less stress on the infrastructure during a crisis," he said. Weeks later, when the Florida Department of Children and Families and the U.S. Department of Agriculture set up a Food for Florida tent at the Seminole recreation center to assist with doling out emergency food bene ts to state residents, CERT members stepped up again. This time they handed out water and snacks to individuals waiting in the long lines. The next CERT basic training class starts Monday, Feb. 26. An introduction to disaster preparedness and response for civilian members of the community, this free class runs through March 3 and takes place Monday through Thursday, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., at Seminole Fire Station 29, 11195 70th Ave. N.

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. Joining Bowman on the panel will be Suzanne Klinker, director, Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, Dr. Alfonso Carreno, chief of Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences Service at Bay Pines VA Medical Center, and the Rev. Robert "Bob" Swick, retired Marine Corps captain, chaplain and veterans advocate. VA's transformation efforts are looking to provide greater choice for veterans on how they receive their care, modernize systems, better focus resources, improve timeliness in delivery of care and bene ts, and prevent veteran suicide, the VA's top clinical priority. These efforts look to address common veterans' complaints regarding outdated systems for scheduling appointments, long waits for processing of disability claims, and gaps in PTSD and mental health treatment.

If approved, the building will likely sit behind the lake on the east portion of the campus where a handful of portable classrooms and of ces were previously located, Edelman said. Plans call for construction of a 2,800 square foot building, though he hopes to increase this by at least 200 square feet to include a welcome center with information about area attractions, dining and entertainment, Edelman added. He said they could partner with the organization Visit St. Pete/Clearwater for this portion of the structure. Once the SPC board accepts the grant from the Luries and approves the partnership, he anticipates that construction of the building would take about six months.Staff changesIn addition to a new home in the works, the chamber is undergoing "a metamorphosis" in other ways, Edelman said. Gretchen Cain Wells, the chamber's chief of operations, retired in December after 20 years. Donna Phelps-Leynse has been hired as assistant director in her place. Wells, originally from Chicago, earned a degree in teaching English with a concentration in communication and journalism from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She covered school board meetings for the Elgin Courier-News and was also a columnist at the Barrington Countryside newspaper. "I got the job at the Courier through persistence," she said. She inquired about writing for the publication, but was told they weren't hiring. "I told them, Well, I'm a mom with kids in school, so I'm going to the school board meeting anyway, and I'll just take a few notes,'" Wells said. One evening, during a blizzard, the newspaper's regular reporter didn't show up for the meeting, but she was there. So the editor called her up and asked her to write about it. "They put me on the beat after that," she said. More than 30 years ago, she relocated to Seminole. She worked at Tampa Bay Newspapers for 13 years, most recently as editor of the Seminole Beacon. "Then I decided I wanted a change," she said. Wells reached out to Patricia Schmoranz, then director of the chamber, to ask her to write a letter of reference. "Then she called me back an hour later and said, How'd you like to work for me?'" Wells said. Initially, she was hired as an administrative assistant and office manager with the plan to eventually take over as executive director. Eventually, former Mayor Jimmy Johnson was hired in that position, though, and she became the assistant executive director. "We worked as partners," she said. "We worked hand in hand. Everything we did was a partnership. We were de nitely on equal footing from day one." Six years ago, when Edelman was hired as president, Wells was named chief of operations. While she worked on the many events organized by the chamber each year, education and training were her "forte," she said. "I love getting people together so they can hear something useful and take away a nugget from that sessions," she said. Edelman said he's sad to see Wells go. "She's incredible," he said. "You've got 20 years of experience right there. She knows everybody in this city and her contributions have been wonderful." Wells and her husband, Larry, will eventually move north to Inverness to be closer to one of her daughters in Citrus County. Phelps-Leynse, born and raised in upstate New York, has lived in the Seminole area since 1979. She has a medical background, working as a respiratory therapist for a number of years, before working in marketing and admissions. She most recently worked for the Bon Secours Health System. She was also a member of the chamber for several years in 2004 when, in addition to her healthcare profession, she sold jewelry. "I was a single mother at the time and I was selling jewelry to make some money," she said. "I got to know Gretchen. I got to know everybody in town and I was part of the ambassador program." She volunteered regularly at events, including the holiday and Pow Wow parades, and the golf tournament. When Phelps-Leynse saw the chamber was hiring, she was excited to apply for the position. "I I love Seminole and I got to know Seminole so well and I always remembered my relationship with the people of Seminole when I was with the chamber," she said. "They were my support group and such an important part of my life when I was a member. I love Seminole. This is home." Longtime administrative assistant Donna Miller will also be leaving the chamber in June when she moves to Colorado.

6A County Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018the projects. PSTA CEO Brad Miller said staff had asked the firms for information on liability concerns. St. Petersburg Councilmember and PSTA Board Member Darden Rice asked how PSTA would avoid problems such as the ones hampering a pilot in Tampa. Labutka said the issue in Tampa was with the vehicle manufacturer, adding that the project was on delay for now. He said PSTA staff would meet with vehicle manufacturer early in the process. He said both manufacturers under consideration had vehicles available. Rice also asked whether the vehicles would be driverless. Cassandra Borchers, chief development of cer, said they would not have a driver or operator, but would likely have an observer in case of emergencies. Pinellas County Commissioner and PSTA Board Member Dave Eggers preferred using a Request for Proposals process to choose firms to avoid liability and other potential issues. He made a motion to deny approval, but did not receive a second.Union contract approvedBoard members unanimously approved a three-year contract with Service Employees International Union that represents PSTA's 29 supervisors in transportation and maintenance. James Bradford, chief operation of cer, said the contract was within PSTA's projected budget. The contract includes annual wage increases with a bigger increase in the first year followed by a 2 percent increase in years two and three. He said annual pay increases were based on pay parity, meaning wages would be commensurate with expectations, duties and authority of position. He explained that meant that wages wouldn't be based on seniority but on the rationale of paying people based on them doing the same job with the same duties. The new contract provides for more vacation exibility and bonus checks retroactive to Oct. 1, 2017. PSTA's 29 supervisors work 24/7, 365 days a year overseeing more than 480 employees in dispatch and scheduling; radio controls and road supervision; mechanical repairs and vehicle servicing; building and asset management; accident response; and hurricane and emergency response.Community bus plan updateBoard members also approved spending up to $550,000 with Tampa-firm WSP to update the community bus plan. Heather Sobush, Planning manager, said the last plan done in 2013 included an on-board survey, which is typically done every ve years. The new plan update will include an on-board survey and a comprehensive analysis of pertinent data, including demographics and fare box data. Case studies on system redesigns and outcomes will be done and a white paper on innovative best practices. WSP also will prepare scenarios based on different factors and make recommendations and implementation plans. The update will consider the fact that transit ridership is declining nationwide and in Pinellas, and the unpredictability of future federal funding. It will consider the county's greater than anticipated population growth, transit-oriented land use changes and growth in residential development along major corridors and in downtown areas. It also will look toward more transportation collaboration and partnerships, including working with Forward Pinellas, Florida Department of Transportation and local governments. The update should be completed by fall.Recent ridership numbersRidership was down 7.9 percent in November compared to last year and down 7 percent year-to-date. Ridership was down 9.6 percent in December compared to 2016 and 7.9 percent year-to-date. Miller said the 21 percent drop in ridership on the Jolley Trolley in December was attributable to the elimination of the free service that had run from Dolphin Tale Adventure at the Harborview Center in downtown Clearwater to Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The exhibit closed in early October. In addition, CMA has opened a parking garage. Miller said other Jolley Trolley routes were growing, such as the one to the Clearwater Beach and the route from Clearwater Beach to Tarpon Springs. Miller reported good news about the half-price sale of $70 monthly passes from Nov. 24-Jan. 31. He said results for December were "very positive," and it looked like it would be the same for January. He said selling the passes for $35 brought in more money because PSTA was selling more passes, which is the same thing that happened during a half-price sale in June 2017. He recommended taking a closer look and maybe making the lower pricing permanent. He talked about the trends in ridership demand and said people were buying fewer monthly passes nationwide as different modes of transportation and more options became available for commuters. Board members asked if people were buying half-price passes in bulk, which they could hold and use after the sell. Miller said the system only allowed people to buy two monthly passes during any single transaction. He said the passes expiration timer began the rst day it was used. He said while it was possible for someone to stock up on passes during the sale, "I don't think that is happening." Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

County 7A Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018PSTA’s C-Pass offers free rides to employees and hotel guests By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersST. PETERSBURG After its success with U-Pass, a program that provides free rides for students attending the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg College and St. Petersburg employees, PSTA recently implemented a C-Pass program available to hotels and guests, as well as other corporations. Mandee Oglesby, director of business development, explained some of the bene ts during a Jan. 29 meeting of the PSTA Board of Directors. She said C-Pass reduced parking requirements, helped promote a healthy stress-free work environment and gave businesses a new way to attract employees, as well as providing a new amenity for hotel guests. Partners signed up for the new program thus far include TradeWinds Grand Resort in St. Pete Beach, and Marriott Suites Sand Key and Sheraton Sand Key, both on Clearwater Beach. Oglesby said corporate partners pay a discounted annual fee based on existing ridership. Employees present their ID badge and hotel guests show their room key to bus operators and ride free on all PSTA's trolleys and buses. Russ Kimball, general manager of the Sheraton Sand Key, said the program had "intrigued us" due to its value to guests, but he had been concerned whether it would work and be of value to the hotel's 350 employees. He said approximately 10 percent of his employees were using the free ride bene t, mostly on their day off to travel to places like Tampa and Tarpon Springs. He said one employee whose car broke down is now using the bus instead of xing his vehicle. He said the program could be a way to attract employees. He said the hotel had a job fair coming up and he would be able to offer potential employees free transportation and free parking. Kimball added that he had been "unsure of the numbers," but his legal team had got together with PSTA and made it work. "We'll see how it goes," he said. "This is a test period." Kimball also talked about the importance of the attitude of PSTA's drivers. He said they helped his guests, acting as a host to those unfamiliar with the area. He said he had no complaints so far. He remains unsure about the cost. "I'm not sure if the numbers are right or not on both sides," he said. Kimball was responding to a complaint from resident Tom Rask, who spoke during public comment. Rask said the price corporate partners were paying for C-Pass was too low. He requested that the number of riders participating in the program be tracked to make sure the price was fair. Michael Miraglia, general manager of the Marriott Suites Sand Key, said his hotel had started the program in January and so far was nding it to be an "excellent program." He said it helps with traf c congestion going to the beach. "It's been a great partnership so far," he said. Oglesby said she had 30 potential partners in the works to try the new program with the possibility of thousands of employees using the service. "I look forward to the potential and continued growth," she said. For more information, call 727-540-1853 or email Moglesby@psta.net.

8A County Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018Plans for nation’s rst underwater veterans memorial announcedCLEARWATER Plans for the nation's rst underwater dive memorial honoring veterans were announced in Clearwater Feb. 2. Called "Circle of Heroes," the attraction will be located roughly 10-miles off the Pinellas County shore and include 24 different life-size concrete statues of men and women serving in the United States Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy. "I can't imagine a better way to share the beauty of our coastal waters and support our troops than this unique, rst of its kind memorial," said Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch. "Circle of Heroes will be an iconic attraction for the region, highlighting the service and sacri ces of those who have fought to protect the freedoms we all enjoy." The concrete statues, which stand 6-feet tall, will be placed in a 100-foot circle. A 4-foot high, 5,830-pound monument will be placed at the center of the memorial featuring ve bronze emblems representing each of the U.S. Armed Forces. "Creating the nation's rst underwater veterans memorial will not only enhance Florida's reputation as a premier dive site, but it will undoubtedly grow dive-related tourism to the St. Pete Clearwater area," said President and CEO of Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, David Downing. "Having Circle of Heroes will honor our veterans while supporting our area's number one employer tourism via increased business to dive shops, hotels, and restaurants and serve as another tool we can use to promote our region as a top vacation destination." "This underwater memorial will not just honor our veterans, but it will also serve them," added retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Bill Wilson of Clearwater. "Diving trips to Circle of Heroes may be used in conjunction with sports therapy programs for disabled veterans struggling with PTSD, depression, trauma and other anxiety disorders." Located a quarter mile from the popular dive site Veterans Reef, Circle of Heroes will be 40 feet below the surface of the water. "This underwater exhibit will honor our nation's heroes, while helping sustain marine life in our precious gulf waters as an arti cial reef. Its impact will be everlasting and our county and state are better for it," said former Congressman David Jolly. Jolly's nonpro t, Brighter Future Florida, is spearheading the campaign to complete the memorial. During the Feb. 2 announcement, Jolly thanked and recognized his uncle, Dr. Heyward Mathews "who is the reason we are all here today." "Dr. Mathews is no stranger to the recreational diving community and certainly not to the community as a whole, when it comes to the marine community," Jolly said. "But, what you all don't know is that this idea came from him in large part because of his commitment to drawing divers from near and far to our area, for tourism reasons and also because of his love of diving. Dr. Mathews has spent countless hours on this project, building statues, researching how to best create this memorial and gaining community support." To date, four of the 24 statues have been purchased using $12,000 in seed money from the county. Additional money from private and corporate donations and other sources is being sought to complete the underwater memorial. The entire project is expected to cost about $450,000 to complete.

10A Pet Connection Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018Pets of the weekSome pet owners may not realize that cats should have an annual checkup and regular visits. Some may mistakenly believe that cats aren't exposed to dangers and diseases since they live mainly indoors. Regular checkups and annual exams are important for such health considerations as maintaining a healthy weight, preventing disease and keeping teeth and gums healthy. Make an appointment in February, which is National Cat Health Month. Annual visits can help your veterinarian monitor your cat's health and take preventive measures to keep your cat healthy, including: Vaccines: Kittens need additional vaccinations at an earlier age in order to boost their immune system, and as your cat grows, your veterinarian will ask about any lifestyle changes that may necessitate different vaccines. For example, if your cat has always stayed indoors, but eventually you start to let them outside, your vet will recommend different vaccines, such as feline leukemia, which is a dangerous communicable disease for cats that are likely to come into contact with unfamiliar and possibly unhealthy cats. Rabies is required by law as this disease can be transmitted to people and is fatal. Heartworm prevention: All cats, even an indoor cat, need a monthly preventive to guard against heartworm and eas. It just takes one bite from a mosquito that has entered in an open door to cause heartworm, so it's essential your cat sees the vet each year to stay up-to-date on heartworm prevention. Often heartworm disease is undetected and can contribute to a number of issues such as blood clots or kidney disease. Spay or neuter: Cats can become pregnant as young as 5 months old, so it's important to spay or neuter them at a young age. Kittens should be at least three months old (12 weeks) and weigh 2 pounds or more before being spayed or neutered. It's never too late to spay or neuter adult animals. Additional tests may be recommended for senior pets undergoing a surgical procedure. Weight: It's common for cats to have weight issues, and your vet can detect increases in weight more quickly if he or she sees your cat annually. Techniques for weight loss are available. Excess weight gain can put stress on your cat and lead to diseases like diabetes or arthritis. Dental care: Cats may accumulate tartar and plaque build-up on their teeth, just like humans. This can lead to gum disease and tooth decay, which can be uncomfortable and cause things like gingivitis, tooth decay, discomfort and inappetence. Your vet can recommend ways to support your cat's dental care at home, like special food or pet-friendly toothpaste, or provide dental cleanings during your visit. If your cat develops an oral disease, your vet will recommend the necessary medical care, like prescriptions or tooth extractions. Health concerns in older cats: When your cat reaches middle age, your vet can use your medical history and blood tests/imaging to determine if your cat is at risk for medical problems like kidney or thyroid disease. Our goal is to identify and manage diseases that can be controlled with medications. Symptoms can be vague and hard to catch, but your veterinarian is specially trained to recognize signs as they start to appear and guide you with care.

She and her mother were sent to work at Emalia, Oskar Schindler's enamel and ammunition factory. "It's so special and important to hear a Holocaust survivor's story firsthand. The holocaust becomes more real when they share their stories, especially with the younger generation," said Rabbi Alter Korf, director of the Chabad Jewish Center of Greater St. Petersburg. He said Finder's story is especially unique. Finder was born in 1929 in Krakow, Poland, to a well-to-do family. An only child, she lived with her parents in a brand-new apartment next to Wawel Royal Castle. A good student in school, Finder often was chosen for parts in the school's play. On Sundays, her father would take her to soccer games, or her aunt and uncle would take her to see children's plays or movies. In September 1939, everything changed. Forced to leave their home, the family moved into the ghetto. There her father was arrested and later killed at the death camp Auschwitz. Finder and her mother worked in a printing shop in the ghetto and one day, Finder and her mother were put on a list to work in Schindler's factory. "It was like going from hell to heaven," she said. "I expected [Schindler] to grow wings. He treated us like human beings." "You didn't have to dread every day you were going to be killed because you knew Oskar Schindler was there, and he was going to protect you," Finder said.FUMC to host annual Heritage SundayCLEARWATER First United Methodist Clearwater historian Kay Holley recently announced that the church's annual Heritage Sunday will take place Sunday, April 15, 11 a.m., with special presentations in the sanctuary at 411 W. Turner St., Clearwater. The event also will feature a display of historic artifacts and light refreshments in the adjoining fellowship hall. This year's theme will be 50 Years of the United Methodist Church. The celebration commemorates when the Methodist church and the Evangelical United Brethren came together in 1968 to form the UMC. The annual local commemorative event celebrates FUMC ministries in Clearwater dating back to 1859. One highlight is honoring those individuals with 50-years of continuous membership at FUMC. "We are delighted to welcome seven new members to our 50-year honor roll," said Holley.

Health & Fitness 13A Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018 Health updatesDOH-Pinellas reminds residents there’s still time to get vaccinatedFlu season is well upon us and the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County wants to remind residents that there's still time to receive your u shot to protect yourself and your loved ones from the u. DOH-Pinellas is seeing higher flu activity this year than last year, however, u activity remains widespread and consistently increasing in Pinellas County as well as the state. This u season is especially affecting individuals age 65 years and older, followed by those age 50-64 years old. This is different than past seasons that typically see children 0-4 years old as the second most adversely affected age group. "Around this time every year we see an increase in influenza cases and we are seeing a higher number reported compared to previous years," said JoAnne Lamb, DOHPinellas epidemiology program manager. "We are hopeful people will take this season as a reminder of how important it is to receive your u shot. The earlier in the season, the better, but if you haven't received it yet, there is still time." Not only does getting your annual flu vaccine protect you, it protects those closest to you who may not be able to receive the vaccine (infants and those with compromised immune systems). The u vaccine is safe and recommended for everyone age six months and older, including pregnant women. DOH-Pinellas also recommends that sick people stay home/keep children home until they are fever-free for at least 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication). If you become ill with flu-like symptoms, contact your health care provider. Your health care provider can prescribe antiviral treatment if appropriate. Treatment is most effective within 48 hours, so calling as soon as you become ill is important. It is essential to practice good hygiene by properly washing your hands often to help prevent the spread of seasonal flu. Make a habit to clean and disinfect commonly used surfaces in your home, school or office. Take additional steps to ward off the u by coughing or sneezing into a tissue or elbow and avoid touching your face. Last year, the flu season peaked around early February, however, peak season for the u varies each year. There are still weeks of u activity to come which means don't wait for u to nd you; get vaccinated now to protect yourself for the rest of the u season. DOH-Pinellas offers u shots to adults for a fee at any of its ve main clinics. Eligible children ages 0-18 may receive them at no cost through the Vaccines for Children program. For other flu shot locations, visit www. oridahealth.gov/ nda ushot. For more information on flu, go to www.

14A Police Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018 Police beatDunedin man arrested in Georgia after telling police he killed his sister By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO A 39-year-old Dunedin man is being held in the Bibb County Jail in Macon, Georgia, on second-degree murder charges for reportedly killing his sister. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri talked about some of the details of the case during a press conference Jan. 29 in Largo. According to Gualtieri, Christopher Scott Horan went up to a police of cer at the Navicent Health Police Department in Macon about 6 p.m. Jan. 28 and told the of cer to "put handcuffs on him because he was there to turn himself in for killing his sister." Gualtieri explained that Navicent Health Medical Center, 777 Hemlock St., is a large hospital system with its own police department. Horan reportedly told the of cer he and his sister had argued inside her apartment in a complex on Duncan Loop North in Dunedin. He also told the of cer that after killing his sister, he had bought a ticket to Mexico. Gualtieri said Horan claimed to have used his sister's credit card to make the purchase, but it still unknown whether he actually did buy a ticket. Of cers found the sister's car in the medical center's parking lot. The of cer contacted Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce and deputies went to the sister's apartment where they found 42-year-old Leanna Horan lying in a pool of blood. Gualtieri said she had been stabbed "well over" 20 times in the head, neck and back. Deputies found the knives used to stab the sister in the apartment. "The attack was so violent one of the knives appeared to be bent from stabbing her in the head," Gualtieri said. Late in the night Jan. 28, sheriff's detectives traveled to Macon where they interviewed Horan. Gualtieri said he was cooperative at rst but became less cooperative as the interview progressed. Horan told detectives he had killed his sister about 7 p.m. while they were arguing. "According to Horan, he stabbed her too many times,' and from the crime scene there's no doubt about that," Gualtieri said. A Pinellas County judge issued a warrant for Horan's arrest and he was booked into the Bibb County Jail on second-degree murder charges. Bail was set at $500,000. Gualtieri said he would remain in the Bibb County Jail until he is extradited to Pinellas County, which could take months, unless Horan waives extradition. Horan's family told detectives that he has mental health issues, although detectives can find no record of any law enforcement contact with Horan due to mental health. He has no record of any involuntary examinations in Pinellas County. His record shows some misdemeanor arrests for DUI, disorderly conduct and trespassing. Gualtieri said it is possible that Horan's mental health is a factor in the case. He said it was still early in the investigation and detectives did not yet know much about Horan or his sister. He said it did appear as if Horan had been living with her for some time. He noted that all the information about the case was coming from Horan, so it is dif cult to know exactly what happened. "But something happened there. It's one thing to get into an argument with somebody and another thing to take a couple of knives, but she was stabbed well over 20 times," Gualtieri said, adding that people with mental health issues can "go off and they snap and this is what happens."

Deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team are investigating the two-vehicle crash that occurred about 3:22 p.m., causing non-life-threatening injuries to a Largo woman. According to investigators, a sheriff's of ce corporal, who was on-duty and operating his fully marked agency vehicle, was traveling north on Oakhurst Road, just north of 102nd Avenue North, in unincorporated Seminole. While traveling northbound, the corporal observed a 2014 Toyota Camry, which was traveling south on Oakhurst Road, cross the centerline into on-coming traf c, nearly striking his patrol vehicle. The corporal turned around and began traveling south on Oakhurst Road in an attempt to conduct a traf c stop on the vehicle. The vehicle drove through the red-light traf c signal at 102nd Avenue North and Oakhurst Road, and continued to travel south while weaving all over the roadway, striking a road sign. The corporal activated his emergency lights, but the vehicle did not stop. The corporal did not pursue the vehicle. As he turned off his emergency lights and slowed down, he observed the vehicle continue south and run off the right side of Oakhurst Road just south of 94th Place North. The vehicle ran over a traf c sign, struck a Duke Energy Pole, and sideswiped a tree, which caused the vehicle to go airborne and crash into a parked 2011 Chevrolet Frontier work van. The vehicle then rolled onto its roof and came to a stop facing north, against a chain link fence. The driver, 68-year-old Leslie Ann Rooney, was transported via Bay ight to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injures. The Frontier van that was struck was parked along the southbound shoulder of Oakhurst Road in the grass. There were no occupants in the van at the time of the crash. Investigators say Rooney did not show signs of impairment. They believe Rooney suffered a medical episode that caused her erratic driving and the crash. Sheriff’s Of ce begins initiative to reduce U.S. 19 traf c crashesLARGO Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are conducting an initiative focused on reducing crashes speci cally targeting traf c violators along U.S. 19 from Pinellas Park to Tarpon Springs. During the eight-week initiative, deputies will conduct strict traf c enforcement in areas with a high number of vehicle crashes and during hours of peak traf c volume. The purpose of the initiative is to reduce the number of traf c crashes along U.S. 19. Deputies will conduct high-visibility traf c enforcement to educate drivers about safe driving behavior and will issue citations for traf c violations that often lead to crashes. These violations include but are not limited to speeding, failure to yield right-of-way, careless driving and distracted driving. The "Educational Phase" of the initiative started Feb. 1. This phase will focus on education and the issuance of warnings. The "Enforcement Phase" will begin on Thursday, Feb. 15, and continue until Sunday, April 1. This phase will focus on the issuance of citations. At the end of the initiative, the Intelligence Led Policing Division will analyze crash data to determine the effectiveness of the initiative. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce will conduct traf c enforcement along U.S. 19 continuously throughout the year.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER 13870 Walsingham Road  727-595-5222(Just East of Indian Rocks Road) Mon.-Fri. 8am-6pm, Sat. 8am-5pm 13870HAMMOCK HARDWARE595-5222 13870HAMMOCK HARDWARE595-5222 POOL SUPPLIES020818 $5 OFF Purchase of $25 or more.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018LETTERSICE arrests for ‘national security’Editor: The front page of last week's newspaper announced a new partnership! Pinellas County's sheriff department announced a "historical partnership" between the U.S. Immigration & Customs (ICE) and 17 Florida sheriffs. Now, the sheriffs can arrest any people who are in this country illegally and hold them up to 48 hours so ICE can "come get them." ICE Deputy Director Homan praised this operation as "vital to ensuring public safety and strengthening national security." The article goes on to say that 94 percent of all aliens in federal custody are here illegally. It is important to note that ICE is NOT talking about those who are real felons murderers and rapists. ICE is talking about rounding up aliens (from other countries) because they are here illegally. "Illegal aliens" is a broad brush for ICE to paint with. When the Nazis occupied Paris during WW II, it wasn't their "goonies" that rounded up thousands of Jews. It was the Paris police themselves working with the occupied government. I am sure this, too, was in the name of national security. Gary Worby LargoArticle on IRB candidates helps sort facts from ction Editor: The time when I most appreciate the Belleair Bee's coverage of Indian Rocks Beach issues is leading up to an important election. As we prepare to elect a new mayor in March, the Bee's Feb. 1 article entitled "Stating their views" provided a concise recap of IRB's Meet the Candidates forum. The article was a solid synopsis of the candidate's statements and positions, helpful to those who were part of the standing-room only audience as well as those who missed the event. Being able to refer back to your articles over the last couple of years to help sort out fact from ction has been invaluable. Nancy Obarski Indian Rocks BeachLocal elections are not a team sportEditor: In recent years in Indian Rocks Beach we have seen the emergence of races for commissioner or mayor-commissioner where candidates campaign together as a team, instead of acting independently. This is not healthy in a democratic system. With team elections, we can end up with a commission lled with members indebted to each other. My fear is too much gratitude among teammates can lead to years of quid pro quo. I never want to see a commission where everyone is anxious to agree with each other. What we want and need is civil, yet spirited debate. That's what has always produced the best policies. I am asking for all of us to consider this in the greater context of our system of government. We need candidates who are not beholden to anyone, especially not to each other. Kelly Cisarik Indian Rocks BeachBelleair bene ts with Mayor Gary KaticaEditor: On March 13, 2018, the 4,500-plus residents of Belleair will have the opportunity to re-elect Mayor Gary H. Katica, who has served our great town for the past 12 years. During his tenure, the town bene ted from multiple infrastructure enhancements, including storm water drainage and road resurfacing. Meanwhile, citizens of all ages continued to participate in a wide range of meaningful programs through Belleair's Recreation Department. And we are fortunate to maintain our own police department providing safety, security and peace of mind for all residents. Mayor Katica, and the town's commissioners, had the business acumen and integrity to patiently analyze various Belleview Biltmore development proposals. The resulting selection of JMC Communities will enhance not only this property, but the entire town. As residents of Belleair, we will all bene t from another three years of Mayor Katica's effective leadership. Jim Spencer BelleairKatica has worked for better BelleairEditor: Belleair is a great place to live. It's a great place to raise a family and take care of family. We are a little town that carries a big punch. I'd like to think that we are perfect even with all our imperfections. The current commission is working hard to x the imperfections. As the deputy mayor, I am asking my fellow residents to re-elect Mayor Gary Katica. I believe in the democratic process where citizens have the right to run for of ce. Holding of ce in Belleair is different. It's a labor of love. You get involved because you want to make a difference. Each current commissioner has volunteered to be on a town board prior to getting into of ce. Mayor Katica has served on many. He has encouraged change that will better our community. He attends ag football games, most town events, Thursday with the Mayor and represents our town at the Mayor's Council, serving as president. This is what it takes to move our town forward. You have to step up and get involved by attending meetings and volunteering. That is how you make a difference and this is exactly what Mayor Katica does every day! Karla Rettstatt deputy mayor Town of BelleairThe choice is clear in Belleair raceEditor:This year there is only one item on the ballot for Belleair; the election for town mayor. The incumbent, Gary Katica, has admirably served the Town for many years, both as commissioner and the last 12 years as mayor. I can tell you if there's one thing Katica is passionate about it's Belleair and its residents. Spencer Connerat is running "to provide competition for the job." Doesn't matter that he has zero experience; he has attended a few town commission meetings since he arrived in town in 2011. He has not volunteered nor served on any town advisory boards. If I walked into a nancial brokerage of ce and asked for a job, I'm sure the rst question they would ask is if I had any experience. If I replied, "No, but I want there to be competition in the eld of brokers," they would have laughed me right out of the of ce. Connerat wants the election campaign to be a platform to discuss and solve community issues like the town's water department, the budget and the infrastructure. "I'm a big believer in civil discourse, I want to have discourse about issues in a civil fashion. I hope to provide an alternative." Since I attend most of the commission meetings and have sat on two advisory boards, I can tell you that if Connerat did come to meetings or participated at all in town politics, he would know civil discourse is standard operating procedure in Belleair. Connerat sent a certi ed letter to President Barack Obama requesting "proof of his natural born status as required under our Constitution." When Obama did not respond, he led a "tacit admission of ineligibility" in Pinellas County court in March 2010, alleging Obama's failure to supply him proof of his citizenship represented a "confession in open court" and "the basis for an action of treason." He also led a petition in federal court in 2011 asking for "injunctive relief to require the respondent to cease and desist posing as president of the United States of America," according to court records. If you like living in Belleair and appreciate the effective and orderly government we have, your choice is crystal clear mark your ballot for Gary Katica. Lil Cromer Belleair What is your celebrity count? In your lifetime how many honest-to-goodness celebrities have you actually met face to face? Had dinner with? Spoken to? Slept with? Or at least shaken hands with? Before you begin counting, do you actually know what a celebrity is? Does the mayor of your town qualify as a celebrity? To qualify as a celebrity, must he or she have been a host or a guest on a national TV talk show? I ask these questions because we seem to be living in an age of celebrity worship. This became apparent late in 2016 when voters elected a celebrity as our 45th president. Since then he has become an even bigger celebrity. Donald Trump is not the first celebrity president to qualify as such. The rst one, in my lifetime, was Dwight David Eisenhower, known for supervising the successful military invasion of mainland Europe, or parts of it. The second one was Ronald Reagan, famous as an actor in several second-rate movies. Recently another celebrity Oprah Winfrey is being talked about as a possible presidential candidate. I have met several people who regarded themselves as lifetime failures because they had never met a genuine celebrity. On the other hand, we have persons who feel they are a success simply for having known or met a large number of celebrities. You can usually identify these persons by how they speak. Given half a chance, they will talk endlessly about their celebrity friends. They are known as name droppers. Name droppers come in at least two classes: Clean and Dirty. The clean ones say only nice things about their celebrities. "Mrs. Streep Meryl is so thoughtful she always sends me a birthday card." The dirty name-droppers will tell you every nasty detail of what Sinatra said to Cher the night in Vegas when she got more applause than he did. It's a good thing I did not want to become a celebrity hound. I never would have made the grade. After a modest career in journalism and public relations, I can't list more than a handful of celebrities I've met or rubbed elbows with. In an earlier column, I told about my frightening four-minute interview with labor thug Jimmy Hoffa. My second wife was a longtime pal of big band singer Helen O'Connell, whom we entertained in our Indian Rocks Beach home. In the 1960s I sat in on a press conference with ex-President Harry S. Truman. With the aid of a translator I interviewed the head of the Eastern Orthodox Church. As editorial page editor with the Clearwater Sun I quizzed a few dozen former, current and wouldbe Florida governors, U.S. Senators and House candidates. I had an interesting chat with Andy Rooney. The column you're reading was triggered by a recent news item announcing the forthcoming return of Candice Bergen to a revival of the hit 1980's Murphy Brown TV show. On a cold winter day in 1966 I came face-to-face with Ms. Bergen as we passed each other outside the University of Pennsylvania book store, in Philadelphia. She studied at Penn for a year or two before moving on. I was an employee in the university's news bureau. We somehow failed to get each other's autograph that day. We didn't even smile or say hello. A pity. What is the value of having been a celebrity fan? Next to nothing, or thereabouts. Or so it seems to me. In your dotage, it ranks with recounting the number of restaurants you've dined in, or how many of our 50 states you've visited. If you're baby-sitting your grandchildren and wish they'd drift off to sleep, just tell them about the celebrities you've met. That should do it. If I had the chance to meet any celebrity I chose, I'd select Dave Barry. He has been called the funniest writer on earth. I tend to agree with that opinion. A piece of advice: If you're ever forced to choose between meeting a hundred worldrenowned celebrities or forming a genuine friendship with an obscure, decent person, go with the friendship. Friends last; celebrities fade. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net.Editor says farewell, so long ... see ya!I once had a colleague tell me journalism is a marathon, not a sprint. By that, he meant perseverance, hard work and some thick skin would lead to success. He was right. Today, I'm ending a 45-year marathon that, quite frankly, has been a very good ride. I'm one of the few who's been able to live a dream, rub elbows with some of the biggest names in sports and work with some great people in municipal government. For me, it started innocently enough as the sports editor of my high school newspaper and a degree in mass communications from the University of South Florida. Then the fun began. In 1973, I was lucky enough to get a job as a sports writer for The Ledger, a ne afternoon paper in Lakeland owned by the New York Times. It was there that I sank my teeth into the business under the mentorship of sports editor Patrick Zier. Zier, a former U.S. Marine with hair down to his butt, was perhaps the most intelligent person I've ever worked with. He read a book a week and once won the Kennedy Award for a series he authored on substandard housing in Lakeland. He was also a former auto racing writer for the Atlanta Constitution who counted racing great Richard Petty among his closest friends. They were so close, in fact, that Petty was the godfather to Zier's kids. Zier set the tone for me. He was one of the few writers covering the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the early days that told it like it was. There was no sugar coating and often it got under the skin of Bucs coach John McKay. Speaking of McKay, he was the king of dry humor. Perhaps his best quip was an answer to a question from a writer during the team's early 0-26 start. "What do you think of your team's execution," he was asked. McKay replied, "yes." From Lakeland, I moved on as assistant sports editor of an afternoon paper in Hollywood, Florida where there were some real characters. The job itself was pretty cool. As the No. 2 sports guy, I served as backup beat writer for the Miami Dolphins, six years off the famous 17-0 season of the Dolphins. Head Coach Don Shula was still king in Florida and he was pretty good on a tennis court too. I had the unfortunate luck of nding out just how good a couple of times before camp opened at Biscayne College (now St. Thomas University). From there, the caravan took me back to Lakeland where I was hired by the Tampa Tribune as sports bureau chief for a four-county edition. I took over for a legend by the name of Jack Slayton and worked beside a newsman's newsman, Garth Germond, who taught me even more about being a news professional. It was during my second stay in Lakeland that I covered the nationally-ranked baseball and men's basketball programs at Florida Southern College where NCAA Division II national championships were a way of life. Also included in that stop was coverage of the Detroit Tigers for six weeks each year during spring training and getting to know Manager Sparky Anderson. Great guy, Sparky. Very easy to chat with, as were his players. I'll never forget Darrell Evans and his UFO stories and the day Kirk Gibson set an altitude record in a twin-engine plane. Detroit brass were sweating bullets that day, not knowing if their star right- elder would make it back alive. He did, and you know the rest.I could go on Chris Evert, O.J. Simpson, Bobby Bowden, Woody Hayes, Mark Fidrych, Hank Aaron, Eric Dickerson, Phil Esposito, Rob Dibble, Lee Janzen, John Reaves and more. But the real memories I'll always keep involve the people I've worked with. Topping the list is the late Tampa Tribune sports editor Tom McEwen. Without him, we wouldn't have Tampa International Airport, as we know it today. Without him, some say no USF and de nitely no Tampa Stadium, which preceded Ray Jay. Few realize how powerful McEwen was but also how down to earth he was. Great guy, the best. So, as I happily fade into the sunset and cleanse my veins of the ink, I wish all my current colleagues the best of luck. Hopefully they too will make it to the nish line.Bob McClure can be reached at bobmcclure28@ yahoo.com.

Walmart, Sam’s Club helps out All Children’s HospitalWalmart and Sam's Club associates are helping "put the money where the miracles are" again this year with a combined fundraising effort raising $472,825 for Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg following the annual Children's Miracle Network Hospitals campaign. The fundraising efforts are part of a broader national effort that raised more than $35 million in support of the 170 member hospitals across the country. "So many of our associates have been touched by the great work done at Johns Hopkins All Children's," said Tina Gardner, store manager at the Palm Harbor Walmart Supercenter, in a press release. "Year after year, our associates and our customers really step up to help make a signi cant impact in our local community. It's really quite amazing and astounding to see how we've all come together to help our local CMN hospital provide lifesaving treatment to children." Over the past two years, Gardner's store raised nearly $18,000 for the hospital during the campaign. "We're so grateful to Walmart and Sam's Club associates, their customers and members for their longtime support," said Stephanie Hall, director of corporate engagement at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital. "Walmart and Sam's Club's generous gift will be used where needed most and to help us continue our research to cure and prevent childhood disease and train the next generation of pediatric experts." Walmart and Sam's Club have supported Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for 30 years. Funds raised impact each of the 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, which treat 10 million kids annually across North America. Hospitals utilize the funds based on what they need most including lifesaving equipment and research, top therapy programs, charitable care and more. Fundraising efforts have evolved over the last 30 years. While donations at the registers drive most of the fundraising at stores and clubs during the campaign, associates also get creative by hosting fundraising events, such as softball tournaments, popcorn sales, root beer oats, community events and face painting.

Schools 17A Seminole Beacon, February 8, 2018Pinellas County makes plans for later start times for high schools By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO If plans work out, students attending Pinellas County high schools can sleep in an extra 15 to 20 minutes longer next year. High school start time is currently 7:05 a.m. A proposal from the Transportation Department calls for start times next year to be somewhere between 7:20 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. School Superintendent Michael Grego, who supports later start times, called the move a "healthy and progressive rst step" toward nding a "school start time that is best for everybody." Recent studies have shown that teens are not getting enough sleep. Some point to early school start times as one of the reasons. Most experts agree that teens need 8.5 to 9 hours of sleep each night. Without adequate sleep, academic performance declines and behavioral problems increase. Pinellas County School District has been wrestling with this problem for years. Later start times come with a number of challenges with one of the biggest being the bus system. Clint Herbic, associate superintendent in charge of Operational Services, updated school board members Jan. 30 about the district's efforts to move high school start times. "Moving just high school (start times) in isolation is extremely dif cult if not an impossible task," Herbic said. Instead, the district is taking a holistic approach to minimize the effect on middle school and elementary schools. Staff is using a software program, Edulog, to try to nd a solution. "What we've discovered is that we are unique," Herbic said. One "huge challenge" is the county's population density. Pinellas is the state's most densely populated county, meaning it has a very high level of traf c, Herbic said. "Our buses sit in traf c not moving for longer than most other buses in most other districts across the state and across the nation," he said. A second challenge is the district's high number of hazardous walking conditions. State law requires transportation be provided to students in grades K- ve who live in those areas. "It is very dif cult sometimes when you look at our network of roads to gure out how we're going to get kids, where their bus stop will be to provide a safe stop," he said. A third challenge is the district's "extraordinarily extensive" Choice Program. Other districts in the state provide fewer choices at fewer schools than Pinellas. "We offer more programs in more schools than almost anyone else in the nation," Herbic said. A transportation committee studying the problem has looked at how other districts across the nation have moved start times. Herbic said most had done one of two things: either ipped elementary and high school start times or they cut into their Choice transportation network. He used the city of Seattle as an example. Seattle ipped high school and elementary start times, moving high school to about 8:30 a.m. However, he pointed out that Seattle doesn't provide bus transportation to high school students. Instead, the students are expected to get themselves to class or use the public bus system. "In Pinellas, our public transportation system won't allow us to do that," Herbic said. Brevard County School officials chose to cut into its Choice transportation network and required Choice students to nd their own rides to a "school attendance zone," where they could catch a bus to take them the rest of the way. Herbic singled out the city of Boston, which had approved a ip in start times, only to nd it had a disproportionate effect on lower income families. He said the city had since reversed the ip and would take more time to study the issue. Herbic is not recommending a ip in start times. He said the plan is to maintain the current times for the other schools as much as possible. "The large majority of middle school and elementary school parents like the times they have right now, so we don't want to impact those times very greatly, especially when you talk about elementary school ipping to the morning," he said. He said staff was "very uncomfortable with having the possibility of 5-year-old and 6-year-old children standing at a bus stop in the pre-dawn hours, especially considering the traf c density in Pinellas." He also said staff was not comfortable with the "increased burden" a ip would put on some of the families, especially lower income, that would have to provide an extra hour of childcare in the afternoon. The plan on the table now is to adjust start times for elementary and middle schools 5-10 minutes, depending on what is optimal.Worried about legislative sessionHerbic talked about two bills currently being considered in Tallahassee that could cost the district millions of dollars. The rst is a bill that proposes to decrease the transportation zone around schools from 2 miles to 1.5 miles. "That would have a devastating effect on the transportation network of every single school," Herbic said. If the bill passes, the district would be required to pick up every student within 1.5 miles of the school, not the current 2 miles. Herbic said it would require buses to make a lot more stops. Currently, buses make close to 12,000 stops. A companion bill would require the district to expand the hazardous walking conditions transportation plan to include students K-12, not just K- ve, which is the current requirement. Herbic said he had run some preliminary numbers, and for Pinellas if both bills are passed it could cost an additional $10 million to $15 million a year. He said the district would have to purchase 100 new buses and hire 125 to 150 new drivers, as well as pay to equip the buses, more diesel fuel and other costs. He said that while things were improving with the current shortage of bus drivers, it would be "catastrophic" to the transportation network to be obligated to have 125-150 additional drivers by August. He also said if the bills passed "all bets are off" in terms of changing start times for high schools. "We'd be scrambling to hire bus drivers and buy buses to have them here by August and have them equipped, tested and ready to go," Herbic said. "It would mean big big changes again and it would affect everybody." Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County Editor. She can be reached at sporter@TBNweekly.com.

OPENING, from page 1B TAMPA – Love is in the air and legendary tenor Andrea Bocelli is back in the United States for his annual Valentine’s Day performances in three select cities. In addition to concerts in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Miami, Bocelli will make a stop in the Tampa Bay area with a performance on Wednesday, Feb. 14, 8 p.m., at Amalie Arena, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Call 813-301-2500 or visit www.amaliearena.com. Tickets start at $75 and are available at the McDonald’s ticket of ce at Amalie Arena, Ticketmaster outlets and online at Ticketmaster.com.

The February 2018 shows mark the rst time Bocelli has performed in Charlotte, his 11th performance in eight consecutive years in Miami, and Bocelli’s rst time ever playing Valentine’s Day in Tampa. Bocelli’s Valentine’s Day performance at Amalie Arena is presented by Opera Tampa, the resident opera company of the Straz Center. In celebration of the Valentine’s holiday, Bocelli will treat fans to a unique holiday repertoire combining the most beloved arias, crossover hits and famed love songs. As one of the most recognizable and romantic voices in the world, Bocelli has been thrilling audiences for over 20 years, counting over 80 million records sold worldwide. Thrilling audiences for over 20 years, Bocelli exploded onto the world’s stage with his hit, “Con te Partiro” and has since sold over 80 million albums worldwide. In 2016, he was nominated for three Latin Grammy Awards including Album of the Year. He received a 2017 Grammy Award nomination for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for “Cinema.” Emmy and Tony Award winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth and distinguished soprano Nadine Sierra will join Bocelli as guest performers for his annual Valentine’s Day performances. Chenoweth’s career spans lm, television, voiceover and stage. In 2015, Chenoweth received a coveted star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2009, she received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in “Pushing Daisies.” In 1999, she won a Tony Award for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” and she was also nominated for her original role of Glinda the Good Witch in “Wicked” in 2004. Chenoweth has been nominated for two Emmy Awards and for a People’s Choice Award for her role on “Glee.” In 2009, she wrote an upliftingly candid, comedic chronicle of her life so far, “A Little Bit Wicked,” which debuted on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best Seller List. In 2015, Chenoweth earned a Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award and Broadway.com Audience Choice Award for her lead role in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s “On the Twentieth Century.” She also earned nominations for a Tony Award and a Drama League Award. Chenoweth has performed to sold-out audiences across the world, including performances at Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall. In 2016, Chenoweth received rave reviews for her two-week run of “My Love Letter to Broadway”, a solo performance at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. This past September, Chenoweth traveled to Rome in support of Celebrity Fight Night, where she generously helped raise funds for the Andrea Bocelli Foundation with a show-stopping performance with Bocelli. Sierra is hailed as one of the most promising new talents in opera today. Having recently made a string of successful debuts at the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Paris, La Fenice, and the Berlin State Opera, the American soprano – recently named the winner of the 2017 Richard Tucker Music Award – is quickly on her way to becoming a xture at many of the world’s top houses. In 2016-17, Sierra returned to the Paris Opera, where she debuted as Zerlina in Don Giovanni last year, and opened its season at the Palais Garnier as Flavia in a new production of Cavalli’s Eliogabalo. Shortly after, she performed at the Opra Bastille as Pamina in Die Zauber te and Gilda in Rigoletto. In 2007 and 2009 respectively, Sierra became the youngest winner to date of both the Marilyn Horne Foundation Vocal Competition and the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. In 2010, she also took home first prizes at the George London Competition, Gerda Lissner Foundation International Competition, and Loren L. Zachary Society Vocal Competition, and was a recipient of a Richard Tucker Music Foundation Study Grant. In 2013, she placed rst at the Neue Stimmen, Caball, and Dunne International Singing Competitions, and won a Richard Tucker Music Foundation Career Grant. She recently signed a joint record deal with Universal and Deutsche Grammophon, and is in the process of recording her rst album.Valentine’s Day concertItalian tenor Andrea Bocelli’s three-city Valentine’s tour includes Feb. 14 performance at Amalie Arena Photo by MASSIMO SESTINI/ROGERS & COWANAmalie Arena welcomes Andrea Bocelli for a Valentine’s Day concert Feb. 14.Capitol to present Gordon LightfootJudy Collins to perform at CapitolCLEARWATER – Legendary singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot will perform Tuesday, Feb. 13, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $49. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. After 50 active years of hit song making and international album sales well into the multi-millions, it’s safe to say that esteemed singer-songwriter and musician Gordon Lightfoot resides with some very exclusive company atop the list of all-time greats. His song catalog is incredibly vast and includes such timeless hits as “Early Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Carefree Highway,” “Sundown,” “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald” and “Rainy Day People.” In 2012, Lightfoot was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Lightfoot recently announced plans for a cross-country U.S. tour that will feature his well-known hits as well as some deep album cuts for the die-hard fanatics. These songs will be woven together with some of Lightfoot’s own behind-the-scenes stories and personal anecdotes about his historic 50-year musical career. The event is sure to be a great thrill for live audiences and anyone who enjoys hearing great music and seeing a living legend in person. It was 2004 when music icon Gordon Lightfoot last delivered a new song to fans, but in 2016, the song “Plans of My Own,” was released worldwide. The song, recorded in 2001, is a sentimental story about moving on to new things. It was recorded solo, featuring Lightfoot’s signature voice and classic fingerpicking style on 12-string acoustic guitar. It’s classic Lightfoot, with an addictive melody. CLEARWATER – Grammy Award winner Judy Collins will perform Thursday, Feb. 15, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $33.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com. Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs and a rm commitment to social activism. In the ’60s, she evoked both idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50album body of work. The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Her stunning rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from her landmark 1967 album, “Wild owers,” has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Collins’ dreamy and sweetly intimate version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical “A Little Night Music,” won Song of the Year at the 1975 Grammy Awards. She’s garnered several top-10 hits goldand platinum-selling albums. Recently, contemporary and classic artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Shawn Colvin, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez and Leonard Cohen honored her legacy with the album “Born to the Breed: A Tribute to Judy Collins.” In March 2017, Collins released the DVD special “Judy Collins: A Love Letter to Stephen Sondheim.” In 2016, she released “Silver Skies Blue,” a collaborative album with writing partner Ari Hest, which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Folk Album. In 2015, Collins released “Strangers Again.” For the album, she invited a cast of icons and young talents to sing with her. The fresh collection features appearances by Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Jeff Bridges, Glen Hansard, Ari Hest and Bhi Bhiman. Photo courtesy of B.C.
