By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE At its Feb. 20 meeting, the St. Petersburg College Board of Trustees voted unanimously to accept a $500,000 donation from the Edward J. and Vivian E. Lurie Charitable Foundation to construct a 2,800-square-foot modular building at the college's Seminole campus. In accepting the donation, the board also approved a 15-year contract between the Seminole Chamber of Commerce and SPC for this joint-use construction project. The building will be a partnership between SPC and the chamber, and will serve a variety of purposes in the community. Not only will it be used as a permanent home for the chamber and local civic organizations, but it will also be used as classroom and event space for SPC's business students. Mark Strickland, Seminole campus provost, said this partnership will also offer certain advantages to SPC students. "It's a fair deal," he said. "Our students will have access to chamber members for job shadowing, internships and jobs." He added, "And none of this would be possible without the generous donation of Dr. [Edward] Lurie and his wife, By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Although it didn't make a direct hit, Hurricane Irma was a big deal in Pinellas County last year. As part of the budget preparation process for fiscal year 2019, county departments are making presentations that focus on things done in the previous year and plans for the future. Most included the effect of Hurricane Irma in their reports delivered during work sessions on Feb. 13 and 15. Emergency Management Director Sally Bishop had the most news to report, after all her department is responsible for planning for hurricanes and other hazards, as well as overseeing disaster response and recovery. Hurricane Irma was only the third time in 32 years that the county has orchestrated a large-scale evacuation, Bishop told commissioners Feb. 15. Her department managed the largest and longest power outage in at least 32 years with 80 percent of the population without electricity at one point. It was the rst full activation of the new Public Safety Campus and the longest activation of the Emergency Operations Center in more than 13 years. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay Newspapers SEMINOLE Gerry Cachia was never planning on attending this year's Mr./Ms. Seminole awards banquet. So, the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the awards ceremony each year, had to trick him into attending the Feb. 24 event at the Parkview Room in Seminole City Park. First, chamber volunteers asked Cachia, president of William Clare Entertainment, for a PA system that could accommodate two microphones. But when Cachia revealed that he still didn't plan to attend, Dr. Stephen Nickse, the event's host, told him that he would be receiving an award for The Red Sled, an initiative he helped found through Seminole Lake Rotary Club to collect holiday gifts for area foster children. "I had no clue anything else was happening," Cachia said. "That was how they got me there." To his surprise, he won the main honor of the evening, taking home the Mr. Seminole title for 2018. "I'm extremely, extremely humbled and I certainly won't take the honor lightly," he said. "I'm in a fraternity of some pretty amazing people. I've been in Seminole since 1977 and know most of those individuals who have been Mr. Seminole. They are amazing people. They've done so many things for the city." Bill Miller, the 2017 Mr. Seminole who led the selection committee that chose Cachia, said "it was quite an honor" to present the award to him. "We couldn't have picked a better person," Miller said. "He's a wonderful gentleman and very, very active in the community." Miller said he's known Cachia for more than 30 years through a variety of community events. "He's always there if we needed anything and is always willing to help. He never wants credit. He just wants to help." Cachia has been involved with the Seminole community since graduating from the University of South Florida with a bachelor's degree in marketing and advertising in 1977. His rst job out of college was at the Seminole Mall. Jobs were scarce for young college graduates at the time. So, when he saw the job listing, he pounced on it. "It was for promotions director. I had no idea what it was or what they did," Cachia said. "If it had anything to do with marketing, I applied for it." He was thrust into "a learn-as-you-go situation," he said, and is thankful to "the million mentors in Seminole" who Green light for Chamber homeCounty reviews Irma reportsSPC board votes to accept Lurie funds for new chamber building at the Seminole campus See IRMA, page 4A See MR.

2A Seminole Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018Sports are valuable for kids to playThis past weekend, my daughter played six games of softball and four of the games were played in one day. Yes, softball is in full season. Both of my girls play softball and they are on two teams each. One is recreation softball and the other is an extreme team, which is a travel ball team. It is quite a commitment. I know a lot of families who are on travel teams that travel all over the U.S. We are fortunate our travel team plays within a few hours radius from home. My daughters have been playing sports since they were 4 and 5 years old. The rst sport they wanted to play was tennis. I think they started out with tennis because their cousins played tennis. The next sport was soccer, then T-ball, baseball and eventually leading to softball. Being in sports has helped my girls in so many ways. They learn how to win and to lose. They learn how to play as a team and as an individual. They learn how to work for a goal. They also learn camaraderie and sportsmanship. Another bene t is they are exercising and in today's world of electronics it's important to get them some physical activity. Since my girls have been playing softball for the past four years, it's amazing to see how their skills have developed. My husband and I always try to encourage our kids. Sometimes they get upset if they strike out, don't get a hit or make a bad play. When we go to baseball games or watch on television our favorite teams the Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago Cubs, we are able to show the girls even the professionals strike out and don't get hits every time. We tell them even their favorite players make errors, but they don't let it get them down and get right back in the game. I know from my own experience that when I was playing sports and going to school, I didn't have time to do much else. I played soccer, basketball and softball. I wasn't good enough to go to college on a scholarship, but I still enjoyed playing. I think it was even more important for kids to play sports in middle and high school because those are the years that kids seem to get into trouble if they don't have anything to do. When you are involved in sports, you don't have time to be bored and get into trouble. The other good thing is you have to keep up your grades to play sports. Most kids like playing sports, so they get good grades. Parents, try to help your kids nd a sport they like to do, whether it's a team sport or an individual sport. It can make a big difference in your child's life and, who knows, they may even end up receiving a scholarship for college.

Presented by Helping Hands Foreign Missions, the concert was to feature the Uganda Esangalo Children's Choir. Unfortunately, several members of the choir have become ill forcing the church to cancel the event. For information, visit Square to host seminar on reducing fall risksSEMINOLE A seminar on reducing the risk of falling will be offered Wednesday, Feb. 28, 1:30 p.m., in the Hamilton Building at Freedom Square, 10951 Johnson Blvd., Seminole. The event includes tips on lifestyle changes that can help prevent falls, a balance clinic to help assess attendees' risk and information on resources that can help. Admission is free. One in four Americans age 65 and older has a fall each year according to the Centers for Disease Control. Falling causes 95 percent of all hip fractures. The National Council on Aging says the fear of falls can cause older adults to limit their activities, potentially leading to physical decline, depression and social isolation.

County 3A Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018 County newsSheriff Gualtieri offers spring break safety tipsPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri offered ve tips for staying safe during the spring break season. "Whether you are visiting somewhere new or checking out a local, familiar favorite, expect larger-than-usual crowds at family-friendly attractions like beaches, parks, and museums," Gualtieri says. He advises to keep small children close, and make a plan with your family about what to do if you get separated for any reason. Agree on a place and time that you will regroup. If your spring break plans include a swim, never swim alone, the sheriff says, and instruct children to stay within sight of a responsible adult or lifeguard. Sunscreen is another tip on the sheriff's list. "Whether you're at the beach, on the boat, or in the backyard, your spring break plans likely include outdoor activity, so don't forget the sunscreen," Gualtieri says. The Centers for Disease Control recommends using broad spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 15, even if it's slightly cloudy. Make sure to apply it 15-30 minutes before you head outdoors to allow your skin suf cient time to absorb it. Home safety is another concern at the sheriff's of ce. "If you're hitting the road, secure your home," Gualtieri advises. "Lock your doors and windows, and put valuables in a safe place. Tell a friend or neighbor that you will be out of town, and ask him/her to pick up your mail and newspapers, because a packed mailbox or a stack of newspapers at your front door signals would-be burglars that you are not there." If you would like someone to check on your home while you are away, contact your local law enforcement agency. If you live in the sheriff's of ce jurisdiction, call 727-582-6200, and a deputy or Volunteer Patrol member will be glad to conduct a vacation home check. The sheriff also has advice on roadway safety for drivers and pedestrians. "Whether you are taking a long trip out of town or driving the pedestrian-packed beach streets, be extra vigilant behind the wheel," Gualtieri says. "Drive defensively. Make sure everyone is properly buckled up and using the appropriate child safety restraints. Allow extra time to get where you're going to prevent rushing and making careless, dangerous mistakes. Conversely, if you are the pedestrian, be on the lookout for distracted drivers, use crosswalks, and always be aware of your surroundings." Lastly, the sheriff cautions people about the use of alcohol. "If you are at least 21 years old and choose to drink alcohol, do so responsibly," he says. "Be mindful of area laws and ordinances related to the possession of open containers in public, and never accept a drink from a stranger. Know your limits, and remember that time in the sun maximizes the effects of alcohol. Of course, never drink and drive. Instead, designate a sober friend or use taxi services and ride-share apps."Tax Collector relocates concealed weapon license servicesCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Tax Collector's Of ce recently relocated its concealed weapon license services. Effective Feb. 26, this service will be available on the second oor of the building that houses the North County Tax Collector's Of ce, 29399 U.S. 19 N. in Clearwater.

"We have also expanded the number of applicant stations, allowing up to four people to begin the concealed weapon process simultaneously." The total fees for the Tax Collector's concealed weapon license services are $119 for an original license and $57 for renewals, with reduced fees for active and retired law enforcement of cers.

Pinellas County Tax Collector Charles W. Thomas recently announced that the Florida Tax Collector Association's Service Corporation is partnering with Auto Data Direct to provide low-cost vehicle history reports at www.title National Motor Vehicle Title Information System reports are part of a U.S. Department of Justice program designed to protect buyers from fraud, unsafe vehicles, and to keep stolen vehicles from being resold.NMVTIS reports give potential buyers information on the vehicle's title history, most recent odometer reading, and brand history. A brand is a descriptive label that states assign to vehicles to identify the vehicle's current or prior condition, such as "junk," "salvage," " ood," or "prior taxi." NMVTIS reports can also protect buyers from VIN cloning, a common practice where car thieves copy a legitimate vehicle's Vehicle Identi cation Number to a stolen car.

Irma was a big deal and tested the plans and training that had been ongoing for years.And it was dif cult for rst responders, according to James Fogarty, director of Safety and Emergency Services, who talked about implementing "condition six" during the height of the storm when crews were instructed not to respond to emergencies. "We've never before had to say, we can't get there," he said. For 12 hours, no medical help was available. Instead, calls were routed to physicians to help talk people through emergencies. Fogarty gave an example of a mother who called because her child was having a breathing problem. The doctor talked to the mother about ways to help using "old school medicine." As soon as there was a break in the storm, St. Petersburg Fire Rescue made a "dramatic rescue," he said. Hurricane Irma was the largest evacuation since Hurricane Elena in 1985. Bishop said 113,000 residents used emergency shelters that year compared to only 23,000 when Irma passed by. She's not sure why the numbers were lower, but speculated it might be that more people are prepared to shelter in their homes or that due to Hurricane Harvey, which preceded Irma, more people took the threat seriously and left the area. She reminded residents that no place in Florida is safe when a hurricane threatens and it's always better to plan to go "10s of miles instead of hundreds of miles" unless you leave very early. She rehashed the fuel problems and traf c issues as millions of people tried to vacate the state moving from south Florida north. "The state did a good job keeping fuel replenished," she said. She said she was grateful for the new Public Safety Campus, which opened in June 2014. It was designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane and houses the Sheriff's Office Dispatch, Regional 911 Emergency Communications, Emergency Medical Services and a new Emergency Operations Center. Doug Brightwell, director of Animal Services, told commissioners that Hurricane Irma had shown his department needed to make some changes. When evacuations began, plans had called for three petfriendly shelters, but that wasn't enough so a fourth was added. County officials wanted to make sure adequate space was available for pets because they know many people won't leave home unless they know their pets are safe. He said 2,013 animals had been housed in shelters. In the future, plans call for using high schools instead of middle schools because they have more space and could house more animals. Also, staff learned that locker rooms aren't good areas for dogs. The county needs more shelter space. Currently there is a de cit of 412 spaces, Bishop said. And there is a need for more storage space to keep emergency supplies and resources, such as generators, cots and medical supplies (walkers and wheelchairs) for special needs shelters. "We're imposing greatly on the school board warehouse," she said, adding that many of the county's facilities where supplies could be stored are too old "to hold up." The county needs about 25,000 square feet of space. Staff is looking at the new Lealman Community Center as a possible space to store supplies as well as create additional shelter space. She said people should understand how small a space they would have if they need to evacuate to a shelter 15 square feet per person and even down to 10 square feet in a full (Level E) evacuation event. She said she heard stories from others in the state about people showing up to shelters with U-hauls, recliners and in general "too much stuff." Commissioner Karen Seel suggested looking at county buildings rather than schools to create more shelter space. "We've run out of schools," Bishop said, agreeing with Seel that other alternatives were needed. Seel said using schools as shelters posed a problem because it didn't allow students to return to class as soon as they might otherwise. Bishop agreed again, saying shelter space was needed before and during the hurricane as well as after, especially if homes were damages and power was out. "There's a ne balance between community needs versus getting schools back in session," she said. One solution is to keep encouraging residents who live in non-evacuation zones to prepare their homes so they can shelter in place, so they are less dependent on the government for help. A big concern is health care facilities. She said the county had 175 facilities, which house about 10,000 patients. She said to move such a vulnerable population outside the county would mean they would need to evacuate up to 96 hours before an of cial order might be given to have time to get them out of harm's way. While most of the county's plans worked as intended, she said there was some confusion with employees' expectation about working and their role during a hurricane or other emergency. County Administrator Mark Woodard said a complete report on the "after action" for Hurricane Irma would be available soon. Bill Berger, director of the Of ce of Management and Budget, updated commissioners on the cost hurricane season and its effect on the FY 2017 and 2018 budgets, as well as the reserve fund. Hermine cost $2.3 million and Irma $27.4 million. Berger expects FEMA to reimburse about $24 million of the costs, but it will take months, maybe years. Without the FEMA reimbursements, the general fund reserve fund is down to about 10 percent. Commission policy requires 15 percent be kept in reserves. Berger said that after the reimbursements come in, reserves should be back up to about 13-14 percent, adding that with "frugal spending" by county departments the de cit could be even less.

It wasn't long before he was promoted to handle promotions for both the Seminole Mall and the Gateway Mall. He eventually left to manage larger regional malls, and also carved out a career in marketing entertainment. He landed back at Seminole Mall twice, since, though. The last time, he worked under Brad Sebring, part of the Johnson family, the mall's original owners. They opened Showoff Theatre Cachia helped bring entertainment and events, such as Seminole Sings, to the mall. "I wanted to make it a place where shopping was entertaining," he said. "That was kind of my theme." He also played a role in the creation of a nighttime holiday parade held the day after Thanksgiving. Eventually, that "transitioned from a mall thing to a city thing," he said. He's been involved with a number of community organizations over the years. He's a longtime member of the chamber, sitting on its board of directors for four years. In the past, he's received both the Merit Award and the Business of the Year Award. When he rst came to Seminole, he was a member of The Lion's Club. Three years ago, he joined the Seminole Lake Rotary Club. "They're great people who do a bunch of things for the community and around the world," Cachia said. "I really like those people and everything they do." Last year, The Red Sled initiative raised more than $40,000 in toys and monetary donations for Eckerd Youth Alternatives, which works with children in the local foster care system. The signature event of this initiative, The Red Party, doubled in size last year to more than 300 attendees. Next year he hopes they can raise more than $50,000 for the organization. "It's grown to huge proportions," he said. "I always envisioned it to be the premiere holiday event in Seminole. I think eventually it will be that way. We're going to run out of places to hold it based on the size." Though the initiative was born out of the annual holiday parties thrown by Cachia and his wife, Rene, he's quick to nod to the Rotarians when discussing The Red Sled's success. "They jumped on this thing and called it their own," he said. "I'm just a small cog in that machine." Several other awards were also presented at the Mr./Ms. Seminole banquet. Harold "Doc" Kinsey received the Merit Award. Arden Courts of Seminole was named Business of the Year. Culver's T.J. Schwebke was named Boss of the Year.

Longtime Seminole residents, the Luries originally gifted the $500,000 to the city of Seminole and the chamber for a jointuse building in 2015. They planned to construct the building at Waterfront Park on Park Boulevard. But the deal fell through last year when the city learned that grant restrictions would make it dif cult to utilize the property for anything other than outdoor recreational purposes. Dr. Lurie addressed the SPC board during the Feb. 20 meeting. "We appreciate that the college wishes to work with the chamber of commerce and other service clubs in Seminole to create this building for the use of the community," he said. "I'm thankful that this thing is nally getting off the ground and we really look forward to the establishment of this building." He told the board that he has had a long relationship with the college, and helped establish SPC's entrepreneurial program with the Seminole campus' founding provost, Dr. Jim Olliver. "This will just add to that type of use," Dr. Lurie said. Nathan Stonecipher, board of trustees chair, told Dr. Lurie, "We appreciate your patience that you've shown in getting this done, and the vision to make a commitment like this at the Seminole campus for St. Petersburg College. I'm excited for the next steps to see this come to fruition." CHAMBER, from page 1A AROUND, from page 2A Photo courtesy of THE SEMINOLE CHAMBER OF COMMERCEAt its Feb. 20 meeting, the St. Petersburg College Board of Trustees app roved a partnership between the Seminole Chamber of Commerce and the SPC Seminole campus to build a multi-use community building on the property. The building will be funded by a $500,000 donation fro m Edward J. and Vivian E. Lurie Charitable Foundation. Dr. Edward Lurie presented the check to SPC following the board’s vote.


County 5A Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018Pinellas County introduces new IT departmentDepartment presentations highlight things done and things planned By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County has begun work developing a budget for scal year 2019. The process actually began Jan. 30 when commissioners gathered at Weedon Island to talk about their strategic plan. A series of departmental presentations started during a Feb. 13 work session and continued Feb. 15. The Of ce of Management and Budget presented the nancial forecast on Feb. 27. Budget information sessions will be scheduled next, starting with the constitutional of cers and independent agencies. Bryan Zumwalt, the county's former Chief Technology Of cer and now director of the new Of ce of Technology and Innovation, gave the rst of seven presentations on Feb. 13. The new department is a partnership with Business Technology Services. The department has 23 full time employees, which includes 18 former BTS employees and ve from the asset management team. Zumwalt explained that BTS would continue to provide the county's technology "foundation," including the network and enterprise systems, including Microsoft applications and employee equipment, while the Of ce of Technology and Innovation will be responsible for business applications and support services. The new department will provide training and integration services, and will manage the business application portfolio. Zumwalt said about 70 applications are now his department's responsibility, including those used by employees and the public. The new department will take over development of the county's website. He said the plan is modernize the site and make it more user-friendly. The Of ce of Technology and Innovation also is responsible for the budget detail application used by the Of ce of Management and Budget. During preparations for the current budget year, BTS experienced problems providing data using Oracle Hyperion in a timely fashion. Zumwalt said two experienced employees as well as an outside contractor now support the Hyperion system. "Everything is ready for this year's budget," he said. County Administrator Mark Woodard added that having the new department take over the budget application work would save about $200,000. The other changes to move business applications to the new department are "budget neutral," he said.Other presentation highlightsReal Estate Management Director Andrew Pupke updated the commission on some of the projects being worked on, including the jail infrastructure building, sheriff's purchasing warehouse/facility operations building, courts consolidation project, north county service center driving course and recycling center, sheriff's new North District Station lease, recent purchase of the Windsor school in Lealman, and the sale of the STAR Center. He also reported on efforts to lease vacant space in the 501 Building in downtown St. Petersburg. So far, those efforts have not yielded any new tenants and additional space will be available when the courts consolidation project is nished. Commission Vice-Chair Karen Seel would like to sell the antiquated building. Commission Chair Ken Welch prefers to keep it. Commissioners asked Pupke to put together a report about the building so they could discuss its future. Virginia Holscher, director of Risk Management, has 18 employees responsible for safety, insurance and claims. They manage risks associated with onthe-job injuries, damage to county property and accidental injury or damage to non-employees. They manage insurance policies and handle claims, including Worker's Compensation. Safety is an important part of the job. Holscher said there had been 180 percent increase in CPR and rst aid training for employees with 100 percent of Parks and Recreation, Risk Management and Management and Budget employees completing training. The county also is implementing OSHA safety requirements with the goal of having every department compliant by 2021. Fifteen classes were taught in 2017 with 21 percent of the workforce participating.Marketing and Communication Director Barbra Hernandez supervises 26 employees who are responsible for public information; marketing; customer service; graphic and digital design; audio and video production; and public meeting broadcasting.

6A County Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018Hernandez talked about some of the accomplishments from last year, including the successful Penny for Pinellas public education campaign, work done during Hurricane Irma, sponsoring the rst fully bilingual community event, marketing of county events and the increase in social media followers, especially during Hurricane Irma. Her department will be working with the Of ce of Technology and Innovation to create a new age-friendly website as well as increasing community outreach and engagement this year. Human Services has 106 full time employees that do a variety of work, including implementing the county's health program, social services, veterans services, consumer protection, justice coordination, contracts, grants and business services. Daisy Rodriguez, who oversees the health program, talked about efforts to meet the needs of the homeless and others that come under Human Services umbrella. Doug Brightwell, director of Animal Services, updated commissioners about the work of his 57 employees, who are responsible for enforcement, customer services, kennel operations and veterinary services. He talked about the improvements made in the live release rates with dogs up to 81 percent and cats at 58 percent, the highest numbers since 2013. The numbers of lost pets being reunited with their owners also showed improvement last year. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at sporter@ DEPARTMENT, from page 5A By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER More people are calling 911 and the number of ambulance transports in Pinellas is steadily rising. The increase in call volume coming in to the regional 911 center is exceeding the county's population growth, according to James Fogarty, director of Safety and Emergency Services. Fogarty delivered the news to Pinellas County commissioners during a Feb. 15 work session. The regional 911 center processes about 1.2 million calls each year. Telecommunicators are responsible for dispatching re and EMS personnel. They handle calls for the sheriff's of ce and contracted cities. In scal year 2016-2017, an average of 633 EMS calls a day came in resulting in 231,000 EMS responses. Of that number, 184,000 were transported to a medical facility about 510 people a day, Fogarty said. And the numbers went up January-April with about 600 people transported a day. Fogarty and staff aren't sure what is driving the increase. Some is social with people using 911 as a safety net. Tourism could be another cause; however, Fogarty said there is no proof that the hike is due to the in ux of tourists, although he admits it would be a logical assumption with 20 million tourists coming into the area during the season. Projections show those numbers could grow to 34 million in the near future. Fogarty said there is capacity in the system to handle some increase. The question is whether it will be enough. "We're looking at that," he said. Work is ongoing to manage the growth in calls and transports. The biggest factor is analyzing why people call. Some are acute emergencies a heart attack or someone hit by a car. However, some calls could be prevented and staff is working on that. County staff and municipal partners are targeting fall prevention, which accounted for about 15 percent of calls in 2016-2017 the second largest number. The goal is to reduce the number of fall calls to 10 percent a year. The No. 1 reason people call is because they're sick. Currently, fall prevention campaigns are taking place in South Pasadena, Largo and Pinellas Park that includes outreach to locations with high risk, which typically are facilities that house a high number of elderly patients. He said simple xes could help, such as modifying light xtures so they come on at night when someone enters a room. Fogarty also told commissioners about the Sleep Safe campaign aimed at preventing infant death. He said on average one infant dies each month in Pinellas due primarily to the way they are sleeping. The campaign aims to change long-held beliefs about how to put a baby to sleep. Priority dispatch continues to be used with telecommunicators making a determination about the best response for each call. Fogarty said some calls require them to "send the cavalry," while others can be routed to a skilled nurse. He said the skilled nursing protocol had been in the testing phase for the past couple of years and plans are in the works to expand it. He said priority dispatch continues to be "applied cautiously." He also said basic life support had been added to the system that used to include only advanced life support. Basic life support units are sent out for calls such as broken bones and transports between facilities. Fogarty talked about a partnership with St. Pete College on an education program for new hires at the 911 center, which has a 22-23 percent turnover in staff. He said the program provides training that allows graduates to become eligible to take an exam for certi cation from the state. He said changes in what third party providers, such as insurance companies, were willing to pay for transport to the hospital also was a factor these days. There's a movement encouraging some to use Uber instead of an ambulance for non-emergencies. Ambulance service continues to be a revenue maker with $56 million collected in FY 2017 with 191,000 claims billed, compared to $50 million and 172,000 claims the year before. Fogarty encourages residents to sign up for Sunstar Paramedics FirstCare membership saving program. It is not an insurance plan, but works with your insurance plan to cover 100 percent of expenses associated with deductibles and copayments. It also will pay 50 percent of costs for any trips denied for non-covered charges by the insurance plan. Uninsured members will receive a 20 percent discount on ambulance transport services. The cost is $66 for a single membership and $101 for a family. The average cost of an emergency ambulance transport is $761. For more information, visit or call 727-582-2008. Fogarty said his department would continue to work with its 18 partners using a "data-driven approach" to improve services and relationships. He said response times still were being met with responders arriving on site within 7.5 minutes or less 90 percent of the time.Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

8A Police Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018PCSO ‘drops the hammer’ on unlicensed contractors By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersDUNEDIN Undercover detectives arrested 26 people on 57 charges in less than three days all part of a sting to catch unlicensed contractors doing business in the city of Dunedin. At a press conference Feb. 19, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri talked about a "huge problem" in the county with unlicensed contractors "engaging in work inappropriately" and "ripping people off." "It shows the ineffectiveness of enforcement over the last several years, because this operation was too easy. It was like shooting sh in a barrel," he said. The sheriff's office worked with the city of Dunedin, which provided a house, to conduct Operation Drop the Hammer Feb. 17-18 and a "couple hours" the morning of Feb. 19. Gualtieri said it was easy to get the people to show up after detectives called ads found in a variety of publications, and it was easy to get them to offer to do work as an unlicensed contractor. "There's no fear of consequences and it runs rampant," he said. "We see this time and time again in a whole bunch of areas." He blames the problem on the lack of enforcement by the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board, which came under re last year for a number of problems uncovered by a series of newspaper articles as well as two independent investigations. The sheriff's office took over enforcement of unlicensed contractors about six months ago, Gualtieri said. "We've done a couple of operations and, because of what we saw, we realized that we needed to do this undercover operation and this sting to identify more people who are doing this and establish that it is a problem of great magnitude." During the sting, 27 arrests were made of unlicensed contractors, a misdemeanor, and 20 arrests were made of persons who had no worker's compensation insurance, which is a felony. One person on probation for working as an unlicensed contractor showed up at the sting, violating his probation. He was arrested again, Gualtieri said. And another was arrested for dealing with stolen property and grand theft related to unlicensed contracting. He gave one example of a "guy who shows up with his buddy" and agrees to do a number of projects. "In order to memorialize this very formal and straight-up agreement, he whips out this yellow piece of paper and on this yellow piece of paper, he handwrites what they're going to do and how much," the sheriff said, pointing to a poster of the agreement beside him. The agreement gives a cash price of $9,000, which is a discount for doing the work without permits, which would cost $10,500. The "guy" was identi ed as Charles Eugene Scoon, 50, of St. Petersburg, and his "buddy" was Howard Ownbey, 47, of Holiday. Detectives charged Scoon with two counts of failure to secure workers compensation and two counts of unlicensed specialty contracting. Ownbey was charged with unlicensed specialty contracting and failure to secure workers compensation. Gualtieri said a number of people showed up that acknowledged they didn't have licenses and that they didn't have permits. "They weren't going to do it the right way," he said. "And all this under the table nonsense, they are very openly willing to do." But it gets worse, Gualtieri said. He gave another example of a man named Anthony Gianunzio, 26, of Largo, who was working with his girlfriend, an employee at Home Depot on U.S. 19. Gualtieri said the girlfriend was referring customers to Gianunzio, an unlicensed contractor. The sheriff said not only was Gianunzio doing work as an unlicensed contractor, he was also stealing from people. Gualtieri said in early February, he took $19,000 in jewelry and other personal belongings from a woman in Dunedin while working on her house. He then took the merchandise to various pawnshops around the county. Gianunzio was charged with one count of grand theft, three counts of dealing in stolen property, as well as unlicensed specialty contracting and failure to secure workers compensation. Gualtieri said these arrests explain why there is a licensing requirement for contractors. "We have to make sure people have the skills, have the ability and do it in a reputable way and there's some accountability and you don't have thieves out there scheming with their girlfriend getting referrals and going in and ripping people off," Gualtieri said. A bill is currently pending in the state legislature that would restructure the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board and give certain responsibilities to Pinellas County government. Gualtieri said if the bill passes and the governor signs it, he is unsure what his of ce's role will be. He is currently in talks with the county. For now, he intends to enforce the law. "Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce is going to continue its efforts to protect the citizens and stop this," he said, adding that while the sting took place in Dunedin, the problem is likely worse in south county and St. Petersburg. He also sent a message to the public. "Please make sure you engage people who are licensed, insist on seeing their license," he said. "And that old adage, if it's too good to be true, it probably is when they're doing work for thousands of dollars less than anybody else you get a quote from, there's a problem there. Don't engage unlicensed people." Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at Insurance Premium Increased?

9A Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018 030118S


10A Schools Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018Governor reveals plan to improve school safetyTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott announced a major action plan Feb. 23 that he says will make the state's schools and communities safer. Scott's action plan includes three sections: gun laws, school safety and mental health. He set a two-week window, while the legislature is in session, to get things done. Scott said he wanted "to make it virtually impossible for anyone who has mental issues to use a gun" and "anyone who is a danger to themselves and others to use a gun." He wants to create a new program violent threat restraining order to allow a court to prohibit violent or mentally ill people from possessing a rearm or other weapon. The program would allow family members, community welfare experts or law enforcement of cers to le a sworn request accompanied by evidence asking the court to take action. Anyone who makes fraudulent or a false statement would face criminal penalties.In addition, Scott proposes to strengthen gun purchase and possession restrictions for mentally ill persons under the Baker Act. When a court involuntarily commits an individual because they are at risk to themselves or others, the person would be required to surrender all rearms. To regain the right to purchase or possess a rearm would require waiting a minimum of 60-days and then asking the court for a hearing.The governor also proposes requiring that all individuals buying a rearm be at least age 21. Exceptions will be made for active duty and reserve military and spouses, National Guard members and law enforcement. The governor's plan calls for prohibiting a person from possessing or purchasing a rearm if they are subject to an injunction for protection against stalking, cyberstalking, dating violence, repeat violence, sexual violence, or domestic violence. Criminal penalties for threats to schools, such as social media posts of shooting or bombings would be "enhanced," as would penalties for anyone who possesses or purchases a gun that is prohibited by state law. Sale and purchase of bump stocks would be banned.The governor also wants to allocate $450 million to a plan to improve school safety. Scott wants to make it requirement for a law enforcement of cer to be assigned to every public school a sworn deputy sheriff or police of cer who will be on campus whenever students are present. The number of of cers will depend on the school with Scott proposing to require at least one of cer per 1,000 students. As part of the governor's plan, sheriff's of ces would be given authority to train additional school personnel or reserve law enforcement of cers to protect students, upon request by the local school boards. Mandatory active shooter training would be required as outlined by the Department of Homeland Security. All training and code red drills would have to be completed during the rst week of each semester in all public schools. Faculty and students would be required to participate in active shooter drills and local sheriff's of ces would be required to approve and be involved in training. The governor also wants to increase funding in the Safe Schools Allocation to pay for school safety needs, such as school hardening measures, including metal detectors, bulletproof glass, steel doors, and upgraded locks. The Florida Department of Education, with Florida Department of Law Enforcement, would be charged with providing minimum school safety and security standards by July 1 to all school districts. Schools would be required to submit their safety plans to their county sheriff's of ce by July 1 each year for approval. Once plans and requests for school hardening have been approved by the county sheriff's of ce, in consultation with local police, they would be forwarded to the Department of Education by the school district to receive any state funds. Scott's plan requires school districts to take all capital outlay funds received from taxpayers and use it for school hardening before it can be spent on any other capital outlay. All safe school allocations must be spent in accordance with the sheriff approved plans. School districts that receive a Safe Schools Allocation will be required to enter into an agreement with the local sheriff's of ce, the Department of Juvenile Justice, the Department of Children and Families, the Department of Law Enforcement and any community behavioral health provider for sharing information. In addition, the state would establish a new, anonymous K-12 "See Something, Say Something" statewide, dedicated hotline, website and mobile app. Scott also wants to create funding to require access to dedicated mental health counselors to provide counseling services to students at every school. According to his plan, counselors cannot serve dual roles, such as teaching or academic advising. Every student must have the opportunity to meet one-onone with a mental health professional, and receive ongoing counseling as needed. Each school would be required to have a threat assessment team, including a teacher, a local law enforcement of cer, a human resource of cer, a DCF employee, a DJJ employee, and the principal. The team would meet monthly to review any potential threats to students and staff at the school. The last requirement in the school safety part of the plan is required crisis intervention training for all school personnel. This training must be completed before the start of the 2018 school year. The third part of the governor's action plan includes $50 million in additional funding for mental health initiatives. Scott wants to expand mental health service teams statewide to serve youth and young adults with early or serious mental illness by providing counseling, crisis management and other critical mental health services. The plan would require every sheriff's of ce to have a DCF case manager in their department to work as a crisis welfare worker for repeat cases in the community. This measure will require 67 additional employees be hired at DCF by July 15. Lastly, the plan would provide law enforcement and mental health coordination matching grants to allow sheriffs to establish special law enforcement teams to coordinate with DCF case managers.

Business 11A Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018Kona Ice now serving Southwest PinellasSEMINOLE Bringing tropical tunes and cups of shaved ice everywhere it stops, Kona Ice is introducing southwestern Pinellas to its distinctive blend of entertainment and gourmet frozen treats. "The communities' rst taste of our cool treats and colorful truck will keep them coming back for more," said Charles Parker, the Seminole resident and entrepreneur who has teamed up with his wife, Stacey Parker, to shift good times into overdrive in southwestern Pinellas with the launch of their new food truck franchise. "It will only be a matter of time before our Kona truck captures the hearts, minds and taste buds of the communities we serve," he said. "It's an opportunity to enjoy a unique, tropical treat," said Stacey. "For a few dollars you can experience the excitement of the truck, avor your own Kona Ice, donate to an organization you care about and kick back for a few minutes enjoying the sounds of the tropics. It's an escape that everyone can enjoy." Equally as appealing as the launch of Kona Ice of Southwest Pinellas is its philanthropic commitment to the communities it serves. The couple is continuing the mobile franchise's tradition of donating thousands of dollars each year to local school groups, teams and community organizations. As they book events with these groups, they pledge to give back a percentage of the proceeds from each stop. Nationwide, Kona Ice has donated $50 million to community-based organizations since the launch in June 2007. "Charles and Stacey share our commitment to giving back," said Tony Lamb, founder and president of Florence, Kentucky-based Kona Ice. "From being foster parents in the area for more than a decade and serving on state and local boards for foster/adoptive parent associations, it is clear that they want to have a positive in uence on the people in their community, whether it's new text books, sports uniforms or, simply, a smile. We are proud to have them on board. Together, we are excited to make a difference in the lives of those around us."Patchington hosts Awareness through Fashion Trade-in Event CLEARWATER The Awareness through Fashion Trade-in Event will run through Monday, March 5, at Patchington boutiques. Patchington partners with domestic violence centers across the state of Florida year-round. Domestic violence is a persistent problem in our society. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, nearly 20 people per minute are victims of physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner in the United States. That equates to approximately 10 million men, women and children that will suffer from domestic violence each year. Patchington has a long history of partnering with local charities to rally awareness for the cause. Each year, Patchington engages in a number of efforts to support domestic violence victims. The most popular is the Trade-in Event. Patchington customers participate by bringing gently-used clothing or personal care items or a $10 donation to any Patchington boutique. In return, customers receive up 20 percent off their purchase. Patchington is a collection of women's resort-wear boutiques with 12 locations across Florida.Oak & Stone partners with Tampa Bay RowdiesST.

We're on board and excited to grow with the Rowdies organization, with a focus on supporting the team throughout this 2018 season."

12A Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018 030118


Viewpoints 13A Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018LETTERSStop the madnessI, like many other Americans, are sick and tired of our politicians, including the president, telling us after mass shootings, including the latest at Parkland in south Florida, that now is too soon to talk about solutions to gun problems in our country. How many times have we heard it in the last few years? We need help, immediately. There were plenty of disturbing signs about the recent shooter in Parkland that were either ignored or not followed through. If we had a National Gun Register, on the Internet, naming everyone who possesses or has purchased a gun, for all the public to see, it would call attention to your neighbors, no different than the public information about pedophiles who live near you. That law, Sex Offender Registration and Noti cation, after challenges, has twice been upheld by SCOTUS. We need a complete revision or overturn of the The Firearm Owners' Protection Act of 1986 that many states ignore anyway. Along with more stringent background checks, and a much longer waiting period, purchasing weapons should be limited to anyone 21 years or older. Additionally, we need a ban on all contributions to our elected of cials from the National Ri e Association that has a stronghold on them. They are being bought and it is disgusting. John Tischner DunedinThe greatest good for the wholeEditor: The harm we face today in terms of a nation and society with guns is not how or who they are sold to, but more importantly, how they are used. The gun assailant wants to maximize carnage and impact in a non-hostile, centralized or con ned environment, with little or no apparent resistance, almost parallel in nature to the hijacked jet airliners used on 9/11. While there is no "one-size- ts-all" solution to the dilemma we currently face, a consideration that warrants further investigation is the use of a "sleeping gas" or immobilization effort that could be released via new/ existing ventilation systems, and, could be installed or retro tted cost effectively. While this approach will not address all applications or use needs, it will offer a more controlled response, fewer total fatalities, higher levels of safety, quicker response to the immediate need, and, a safer means for law enforcement efforts on all fronts to "move-in" to make the necessary arrests. Will there be individuals who will die or perish because of their own health conditions, age, etc., most assuredly. Will there be some deaths because of system mis res or delay in the release of the gases, of course there will be. Can the perpetrator acquire a gas mask? Yes, but this will give us yet another level of advance warning of who a likely candidate for committing a crime of this nature might be and lead to better advance planning and control. What about stadiums for professional and college events. If they are outside, aeriated facilities, no it won't, but it will assist and control in a facility of a domed nature. "The Greatest Good for The Greatest Number" quote in its shortest form, is an approach best de ned by Jeremy Bentham as "A goal put forth for governments, that they should be judged by the results of their policies, and speci cally, whether those policies bene t the majority." Lorian J. Tripp LargoVote carefullyEditor: In today's Beach Beacon, I read the letters to the editor as I always do. I found it interesting. A candidate for election as a commissioner was commenting on a letter published the previous week from a citizen. Now I do not know either of these people up close and personal, but I have seen them express their views and feelings at meetings. The contrast is revealing. In 1939, I was 7 years old and I heard neighbors speaking a word I didn't know. The word was (purge). So, I asked what it meant and they explained it to me that it basically meant to get rid of. And the context in which it was being used had something to do with a man in a faraway country who felt it was his mission in life to purge the world of all Jewish people. It had to be further explained to me that this meant killing them all. I was incredulous. I simply could not understand. Now I am not Jewish, but one of my close little friends was, his name was George Lewinger. I was unable to comprehend why anyone would want to kill George and his family. Well, that was a long time ago but I still can't understand hate, prejudice, intolerance and all the masquerading terms that are used to hide them. Such words as clean house, opposing views, too permissive, when they are intended to sti e anyone who is different. To me the most heinous crime is committed when one person forces his or her will upon another. In this country, all people are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are blessed; vote carefully! Rees E. Noren Madeira Beach Belleair candidate discusses issuesEditor: My name is Spencer Connerat, and I'm running to be mayor of Belleair. The reason that I write to you today is to introduce myself, as a political candidate, and as a leader. In a 2018 interview, Heisman Trophy winner and, now, professional baseball player Tim Tebow stated, "A leader is someone people will follow." During the qualifying period, in December, I met with many residents to hear their concerns and to propose a new kind of leadership for our town. Many were frustrated with the failure of the town to keep its promises regarding road improvements. The worst part of this predicament is that we are now about $9 million in debt, with very little to show for it. With a degree in economics from the University of Virginia plus over 20 years of experience in nancial services, I bring a unique set of skills to address these issues. An example of how I would lead comes from my public statement, in 2016, that the town should refrain from selling the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club. We owned a public golf course, had a great staff, and made about $250,000 per year in cash. Now, we have no ownership. We already have a private club which needs no further competition, especially from within the town limits. Although the current owner may be benevolent, let's see what happens with a few ownership changes down the road. My leadership would have fought to preserve the status quo, where we made money and kept control of the property. Here are some of my current ideas for leadership: We must address our water issues immediately. We are losing control of our water supply; good water is one of the reasons why the town was founded. This is likely the most critical issue we face. It has been ignored since I spoke about it, in 2016. We must oppose any increase in the millage rate for property tax. Belleair residents are taxed enough already. We must endorse the creation of written goals for our town. A business (or town) cannot reach its destination if it doesn't know where it is going. We must correspond with any constituent who takes the time to write a letter. Some of our elected leaders forget who put them in of ce. A mayor reports to the people; they don't report to him. In sum, Belleair is at a pivotal point in history, after years of dealing with millions of dollars of debt, poor water pressure and quality, promises of road repairs which are routinely postponed, and "demolition by neglect" of the historic Belleview Biltmore Resort and Spa. During a visit to the governor's conference room in Madison, Wisconsin, I noticed a quote on the ceiling, which read, "the will of the people is the law of the land." I heartily encourage all Belleair electors to exercise their will on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, by voting for a new kind of leader, one with a bright, creative, energetic, positive, and results-driven vision of our town's future.Spencer ConneratBelleair The meanest man I've ever known (I'll call him Savage) was the master-at-arms of my ship many years ago. One of his duties at 6 a.m. each day was to wake up the crew. He did this by sounding a bosun's pipe over the ship's loudspeakers, and then shouting it was time to get up. Savage could have quit at that point. Instead, he went from one compartment to the other, cursing and shouting insults at us. His favorite trick was to physically shake any bunk in which a retread was sleeping. This was during the Korean War, when many World War II sailors had been called back to duty. We called these men retreads. We never knew why Savage especially hated them. He hated almost everyone. And we returned the favor. He is rotting in hell now. I sometimes think of him when I peacefully roll out of bed at 10 or 11 in the morning, of my own volition. I think "Savage, go kiss a dead ape!" That is my lifelong revengeful attitude to Savage or anyone who takes pleasure in waking up a sleeper. Songwriter Irving Berlin captured the feelings of countless service men and women in his 1942 Broadway musical, "This Is the Army." He wrote "Someday I'm going to murder the bugler. Someday they're going to find him dead. I'll amputate his reveille and stamp upon it heavily, and spend the rest of my life in bed!" I hear a lot about the agony of sleeplessness, which can be a major problem. But where are the suggestions for the pain of getting up each day? The answers are on Google. Almost everything is on Google. My cat Ellie is one of my solutions. After I've snored half my day away she silently sidles up to my cheek or ear and sniffs. Then she climbs all over my carcass, as if to make sure I haven't died during the night. I've trained her not to stand on my chest and its quintuple-bypass history, or on my bladder zone, which by that time of the morning is screaming "CONDITION RED! PREPARE TO FIRE!" During our November-to-May New England winters my second morning stop (after the loo) is my condo unit's thermostat. I goose it up to the "Icicle-melting-zone area" and then dive back into bed to await a civilized temperature. While there I often read a page or two of my "Daily Stoic" book. Lately I've also been performing sets of leg exercises dictated by local rehab therapists who are helping me remain mobile. Coffee and music taken separately or together can be wonderful ways to shake off slumber. I know people who are uncertain of their own names, or anything else, until they have ingested a cup of coffee each morning. Automatic coffee-makers start the day for thousands of heavy sleepers around the globe. Same way with iPod devices and other pre-set music sources that can ease us into reality.If you had to make a choice, what would your favorite wakeup music be? Classical? Rock? Rap? Hymns? Golden oldies? Sousa marches? I think I'd choose college fight songs, full of sure-to-win energy and optimism. If I woke up each day to the football-music of Ohio State, Columbia and Notre Dame plus the University of Maine's stein song, I might be transformed into a dynamo, rather than the snoozer I often am.As some of you may already know, one of the worst ways to wake up each day is with a hangover. I'm an expert on that. I spent my earlier years as a practicing, dues-paying drunk. But 52 years ago this week I turned in my membership card. Waking up sober every day since then has been as close to heaven as I'm going to get. Many Hollywood screenwriters would be lost without wakeup calls not for themselves but as a solution to "How in God's name will I start my next movie script?" A simple and overused answer: a 6 a.m. phone call to the main character. If you're a movie buff, you may agree with me. Or not. Final word, from French poet-philosopher Paul Valery: "The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up." Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@’ feelings on TrumpOXON HILL, Md. One year ago, when the Conservative Political Action Conference convened for its annual gathering, participants were positive about Donald Trump's 2016 election victory, gleeful that Hillary Clinton did not win, but unsure about what the future would bring. So, they danced around their new leader's ascent gingerly. (There was also the issue of CPAC's failure to endorse Trump as wholeheartedly as his base. In 2016, Trump ended up cancelling his planned speech at CPAC under threat of a walkout, and he came in third in CPAC's presidential straw poll.) Matt Schlapp, whose American Conservative Union puts on the event, noticed the change this year from 2017. "Last year I think people were a little bit still little in a state of shock. You know, did this really happen?" Schlapp told the Review Journal. "This year I think there's more of a feeling of, it's working. For conservatives, the agenda that the president put out there is just working so well." Trump was aware of the group's misgivings. At the start of his 75-minute address Friday, he said, "Remember when I rst started running? Because I wasn't a politician, fortunately. But do you remember I started running and people would say, Are you sure he's a conservative?' I think now we've proved that I'm a conservative, right?" A year ago, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus sat with Chief Strategist Steve Bannon at a session designed to defuse stories about a feud between the two. Bannon famously announced that the Trump administration was committed to "the deconstruction of the administrative state." Trump later red both aides. The important thing is "the president is still deconstructing the administrative state," David Bossie, longtime Trump adviser and head of the conservative group Citizens United, asserted after Trump's CPAC address. John Cox, a businessman who is running for California governor as a Republican, said he didn't think that Trump, a former Democrat whose positions often varied from GOP doctrine, was truly conservative. "I didn't vote for him," said Cox, who has attended CPAC conferences for years. Would he vote for Trump in 2020? "Absolutely, with bells on," Cox answered, who is thrilled with Trump's judicial picks and the effective U.S. assault on ISIS. Trump still grates on Cox, who acknowledged that for all the policy pluses, "the trouble is the personality." Cox described Trump as the opposite of President Barack Obama, who is highly likable as a human being, but whose policies offended Cox. As a candidate in a very blue state (with no Republicans in statewide of ce), Cox is aware of the dif culties Trump could present for his campaign. And it's not just because of Trump. Cox also blames the media for "unrelentingly negative" coverage. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson thinks Trump's tenure in the White House will make it impossible for a Republican to win statewide in another blue state, New Mexico. "If you're running," he explained, "you'd be expected to defend him." As for Nevada's governor's race, Johnson predicted a Democratic win then posited that his 2016 election loss suggests he is no expert. It says something about CPAC that Johnson met well-wishers and sel e-seekers wherever he walked at the conference even though he ran against Trump as a Libertarian candidate for president in 2016. While most attendees seemed happy to embrace Trump as a fellow conservative, Johnson was not so sure. Yes, he said, Trump is conservative "in some ways. He reduced taxes but he didn't reduce spending and I think that's part of the conservative equation." Johnson presented a view on Trump that runs contrary to what others say. He thinks Trump doesn't rate as a conservative because he does not communicate well. "I don't know his thought process," said Johnson. "Part of the art of governing is to communicate why you do things. I think he's done a really poor job of that." As an example, Johnson said, he doesn't understand Trump on Afghanistan. "What's your information on Afghanistan that you're doubling down on Afghanistan, instead of getting out, which is what you said during the campaign?" (Presidents can change their mind, Johnson stressed, he just wants to know what factors led to the change.) Other CPAC attendees con ded their misgivings on an off-the-record basis, but they wanted to stay on the Trump train. Schlapp, whose wife, Mercedes, a high-pro le defender of conservative causes in her own right, joined the White House communications team in September, said, "The room itself with the president, we've never had that many people in that room. And he had a lot of fun in the speech. He connects with these people." Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ or 202-662-7391. Follow @ DebraJSaunders on Twitter.

Outdoors 15A Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018Recent warm spell brings variety to local shing sceneSummer like temperatures have encouraged snook to leave the safe haven of their wintering haunts for surrounding grass ats and their mangrove shorelines. The snook are looking to bulk up after an extremely cold January and at the right time and tide have fed with recklessness. Target shorelines close to the many small creek mouths that can found from Pinellas Point all the way north past the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Fish the mouth of the creeks during the higher tides. Trout are still holding strong around spoil islands in northern part of the country as well as rock jetties. This week's stronger tides should have the trout feeding. Target the incoming tide with free-lined live baits including shrimp, whitebait and /or small pin sh. Tripletail are showing up in our area. Scan crab trap oats both inshore and along the beach to nd them. Live shrimp or a small whitebait under a oat usually will draw a strike. Sheepshead shing is improving as schools of larger sized sh group up for their spawn. Fish pass bridges and jetties when targeting the bigger sh. Use fresh pieces of shrimp shed on either a jig head or a small hook with a split shot for weight. Also, now is a good time to have a few pompano jigs on hand, especially when shing in or near the passes. Look for the pompano to stage up and feed on the strong part of the tide. First thing in the morning or early evening is the best time to trick these tasty speedsters. Keep your eyes open for a chance at spotting a school of breeder sized black drum. These giants will often hang out over deep grass ats and can sometimes be seen tailing in the shallows usually early in the morning. Pinellas point is a good area look as well as the ats around the Dunedin causeway. Cast gulp shrimp on a stout jig head into the school and hang on.

show and a roster of fun and hook-laden original songs. According to the band’s of cial website, Billings and Tom King were original members of Stranger and were there through it all. Billings’ vocal range and ability were equally matched by his magnetic personality and his ability to make everyone in the audience feel like a friend. During the band’s 16-year run, Stranger released several independent CDs in addition to the initial Epic release, solidifying their catalog of “Florida music,” and spawning hits such as “Swamp Woman,” “Okeechobee Whiskey,” “3D,” “Hit and Run,” “Alligator Joe” and “Wrong Side of the Tracks.” Following the breakup of Stranger, Billings formed Damn the Torpedoes in 1996 followed by the founding of the Greg Billings Band in 2003. Current band members include Billings on lead vocals, Tom King on bass guitar, George Harris on guitar and vocals, Rob Stoney on keyboards and vocals, Mark Busto on drums and vocals and Kyle Ashley on guitar. Another one of the Tampa Bay area’s best-known bands will be performing Sunday. The Black Honkeys will be serving up a shot of soul, R&B and funk for this year’s festival. The Black Honkeys rst hit the stage in 2000. Phil Esposito – a diehard fan of the old Motown and R&B sound of the ’60s and ’70s – and then guitarist Joe Sanders – who was into the J. Geils Band, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones – combined their musical interests and launched the project that would become The Black Honkeys. The band started rehearsing in September and played their rst show at Club More in Clearwater on New Year’s Eve. The eight-piece band is led by vocalist Esposito – better known as “Brother Phil.” The supporting cast includes Nicole “Ms. Groovalicious” Coley eld Davids on vocals, Wil “The Thrill” Harris on bass and vocals, Greg Czink on guitar and vocals, John Dash Dixon on keyboards, Stephen Tanner on drums, Terry Clark on trumpet and vocals and Scott Meyers on trombone and vocals.

Eighth Ave. C-112, Tampa. “Fresh off the Bloat” is Cho’s sickest stand-up comedy show to date. A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Cho doesn’t take anything for granted as she continues to tackle dif cult subjects with sensitivity and her razor-sharp insight with her takes on addiction, abuse, activism and Asianness. It’s all about the politics of disgust and what is disgusting about politics. An accomplished performer in all formats, Cho could be called the “Queen of all Media” having conquered the worlds of lm, television, books, music and theatre. She has ve Grammy Award nominations (two for the music albums “Cho Dependent” and “American Myth”) and one Emmy nod for her groundbreaking work on “30 Rock.” Never one to shy away from a dif cult or taboo topic, her socially aware brand of stand-up comedy has made her both a thought leader as well as a teacher to those with open minds and open hearts. In 2017, Rolling Stone named her one of the 50 Best Stand-Up Comics calling her “the sort of funny, sex-positive feminist and LGBT activist younger comics continue to look up to.” Equally as important as her creative side is the causes she is passionate about. Cho is widely recognized for her charitable work with gay rights and anti-bullying campaigns. In every segment of her life, she is honest, forthright, passionate, uproarious and always entertaining.

SEAFOOD, from page 2B Photo by BILL KINNEYSt. Petersburg Seafood and Music Festival welcomes the Sarasota Steel Pan Band March 3.Howie Mandel to present stand-up comedy at CapitolCLEARWATER – Internationally renowned actor and comedian Howie Mandel will return to Clearwater for one night only to perform his stand-up comedy Thursday, March 1, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $49. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. Mandel has been in show business for more than 30 years. Known for such television gigs as being a judge on “America’s Got Talent,” he’s also received an Emmy nomination for his role as the host on “Deal or No Deal” and a Daytime Emmy nomination for his role as host for the syndicated version of the show. Mandel’s versatile career has encompassed virtually all aspects of the entertainment spectrum including television, lm and stage. From his work on the Emmy Award-winning “St. Elsewhere” to the international animated children’s series “Bobby’s World,” Mandel has become a mainstay of the American comedy scene. Mandel recently added another title to his rsum: author. He released “Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me,” his frank, funny, noholds-barred memoir, in 2009. The memoir revealed his ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD and how it has shaped his life and career. The book made the New York Times Bestseller list on its rst week and remained on the list for several consecutive weeks. The stand-up comic came to the attention of the U.S. television viewers during the six-year run of the 1980s medical drama “St. Elsewhere.” Mandel portrayed Dr. Wayne Fiscus on the show. Mandel has done countless comedy specials both on cable and network television. He’s hosted his own syndicated talk show – “The Howie Mandel Show” – and continues to be a mainstay on the talk show circuit and performs as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the U.S. and Canada.

8B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, March 1, 2018CLEARWATER – Legendary solo artist and guitarist Robin Trower will make his way to Pinellas for one show on Thursday, March 8, 8 pm., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $39.50. Call 727-7917400 or visit According to a biographical sketch provided by Robin Trower Publicity and Media Relations, Trower’s story began in the mid 1960s when he launched his recording career in the Southend rhythm and blues band The Paramounts. It wasn’t until 1967 that his talent was rst detected on any rock and roll radar screens. In that year, Trower joined Procol Harum shortly after they recorded their mega-hit “A Whiter Shade of Pale.” He completed ve albums with Procol Harum and toured with the band before breaking away for a solo career in 1971. “The big break for me was Gary Brooker getting me to join Procol,” Trower said of the experience. “That opened up the whole world. Without that I would never been able to go on and do what I’ve done.” Using bands such as Cream, Taste and the Jimi Hendrix Experience as models for his own power-trio, Trower joined forces with vocalist and bassist James Dewar and drummer Reg Isidore to form the Robin Trower Band in 1973. Trower’s atmospheric, effects-laden Stratocastering brought inevitable initial comparisons with Hendrix, but he quickly made his own mark. The band was soon outselling Procol Harum. “Bridge of Sighs,” released in 1974, reached the Top 10 in the United States. It went on to influence an entire generation of musicians. Its success also allowed Trower the freedom to explore his musical limits on subsequent albums. “In City Dreams” and “Caravan to Midnight” both demonstrated Trower’s maturing song writing abilities and strong connection to the blues. In the era that saw punk and new wave attempting to rede ne the musical landscape, Trower’s distinctive style of performance retained a sizeable live following in the United States. At the same time, radio was listening in another direction. In 1984, he split from long-time label Chrysalis Records. By the late 1980s, Trower’s recorded output became more sporadic. That set the stage for a brief reunion with his old bandmates in Procol Harum in the 1990s. Following the reunion, Trower reassessed the direction of his solo career. He chose a path that would allow him to ful l himself musically, putting less emphasis on sales numbers and revenue. That path led him to found V12 Records alongside manager Derek Sutton. In 1994, “20th Century Blues,” the rst V12 album, was released. Trower was backed by drummer Mayuyu and bass player/vocalist Livingston Brown. As the decade progressed, Trower decided to take on a share of the lead vocals. “I thought to myself there aren’t any blues artists that aren’t singers,” he explained. “I thought I’d give it a go. When you write songs, you’re always gonna get a twist put onto them by whoever sings them. When you sing it yourself it tends to come out how you heard it in your head when you wrote it.” With his stock still high among his fellow performers thanks to albums such as 1997’s “Someday Blues,” the late 1990s saw Trower hooking up with Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry for two albums, “Taxi” and “Mamouna.” The albums also led to a European tour. Since 2000, Trower has released a number of albums, including “Go My Way” (2000), “Living Out of Time” (2004), “Another Days Blues” (2005), “What Lies Beneath” (2009), “The Playful Heart” (2010), “Roots and Branches” (2013), “Something’s About to Change” (2015) and “Where You Are Going To” (2016). The legendary British blues-rock guitar statesman released “Time and Emotion,” his latest work, in 2017. The new album showcases Trower’s evocative note bends and signature tone along with his powerful lead vocals. There are plenty of tightly knitted bass lines and drum grooves supporting his gut-lifting sound to titillate the listener’s ear. It is an unadulterated combustion of rock, blues and soul – exactly what Strat-fans crave from this unique artist. Track highlights include “The Land of Plenty,” “I’m Gone,” “Bitten by the Snake,” “If You Believe in Me” and “You’re the One.” Trower powerLegendary British blues-rock guitarist Robin Trower takes the stage at Clearwater’s Capitol Theatre Robin T rower plays Capitol Theatre March 8.
