By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Growing up in Seminole, Sarah Sunderland, 22, attended nearly every Pow Wow Festival. So when the city's Recreation Department staff suggested, jokingly, that she and her ancŽ, Michael Moseley, 25, get married at the annual event, the couple immediately thought it was a great idea. "Michael and I have always been very untraditional and he was like, I love the idea,'" Sunderland said. Initially, they were inquiring about the availability of Seminole City Park. They planned to wed in the park and follow it up with a bowling alley reception. But when the weekend they initially inquired about was booked, city staff suggested the weekend of March 9-11 instead. Sunderland was worried it would interfere with the Pow Wow festivities. "I was like, don't you need the park for Pow Wow?'" she said. Since the Pow Wow is held at the recreation complex on 113th Street North and not Seminole City Park, there would be no interference, she was told. But Duane Crandall, recreation program coordinator, told her, "But if you want to get married at the Pow Wow, we can make that happen." He added, "It just seemed like such a fun SEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives charged a 33-year-old Seminole man Feb. 27 with two counts of first-degree arson in connection with fires at two local churches. Detectives assigned to the sheriff's Arson & Auto Theft Unit say Brody Allen Seiger is responsible for starting fires at two churches in Seminole sometime between 11 p.m. Feb. 3 and 1 a.m. Feb. 4. The fires occurred at the Seminole United Methodist Church, 5400 Seminole Blvd., and Universal Harmony Church, 5903 Seminole Blvd. Detectives say both churches were unoccupied at the time and the fires caused minor property damage. Detectives believed the res were set intentionally and were related. Detectives obtained surveillance video of the man they believed was responsible for the church res. The surveillance video was placed on social media and detectives received a tip that helped to identify Seiger as the suspect. Detectives interviewed Seiger at the Sheriff's Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo Feb. 27. Detectives say Seiger admitted to setting the church res claiming that he set the res for God. According to detectives, Seiger broke a window at the Universal Harmony Church during the late-night hours of Feb. 3. Seiger lit a doormat on re and pushed the doormat through the broken window of the church. About an hour later, he broke a window at the Seminole United Methodist Church, poured gasoline through the broken window and ignited the gasoline. Seiger was transported to the Pinellas County Jail. Bail was set at $100,000. Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay Newspapers SEMINOLE Those involved with Seminole's original Pow Wow Festival in the late 1960s hardly recognize what the event has grown into today, 50 years later. After all, what started as a simple barbecue chicken dinner organized by the Seminole Volunteer Fire Department has evolved into three days of carnival rides, a variety of entertainment and activities, numerous food vendors, and a parade. This year's event will take place March 9-11 at the Holland G. Mangum Recreation Center, 9100 113th St. N. "It's unbelievable," said Doug Meyer, who volunteered at the rst Pow Wow as a high school student and member of SHS's Civitan Club, and remained involved as a volunteer re ghter. He later stayed on with Seminole Fire Rescue, when the city took over the re department, and retired as deputy chief of operations. "It's so different now. To watch it grow over the years It still brings a sense of a community, but it's not like it used to be nothing is ever like it used to be but it still brings out good community participation." Harold "Doc" Kinsey, a volunteer re ghter at the time who currently sits on the city's Pow Wow Committee, said, "Originally, the only thing they had [at the Pow Wow] was just the barbecue chicken dinner and from there it grew." The rst Pow Wow Festival was held in 1967, before the city was even incorporated, as a way to raise funds for Seminole High School's rst football stadium. The volunteer re ghters decided to host a chicken dinner at the original re station at 113th Street North and 70th Avenue. Those who wanted to support the fundraiser could get half a chicken, cole slaw and baked beans for a nominal price "compared to today, maybe $3.50 or $4," said Meyer. Most of the food was donated to the re ghters for the event or sold to them at a steeply discounted price. "I remember we had a deal with Kentucky Fried Chicken for their cole slaw," he added. The re ghters built the barbecue pits themselves, using cement cinder blocks and metal trash cans, said Scott Eddinger, originally a volunteer re ghter who joined in the early 1980s, and currently a lieutenant for Seminole Fire Rescue.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018"The pit was amazing," he said. Meyer said, "We'd used cinder blocks to create the pit, and in the middle of the hot box were garbage cans lined with aluminum foil." The firefighters would start building the fire at 5 a.m., he added. "Then we'd all go to Mama's Kitchen for breakfast and by the time we got back to the re station at 7 a.m., the re was ready for us to start cooking," he said. They'd start serving chicken meals by 11 a.m. Some people would drive up to pick up an order they had called in. Many others would eat their meals on site and enjoy the company of their neighbors and friends. "It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun at the same time," Kinsey said. That rst year, they sold about 2,000 meals, Meyer said. "From there, it just grew and grew proportionally each year. It was quite an event." He added, "In its heyday, I remember serving as many as 5,000 chicken dinners." It was Kat Mangum, wife of eventual mayor Holland Mangum, who suggested naming the event the Pow Wow, Kinsey said. The re ghters had been trying to come up with a name to tie the event together, something that would provide a theme. Chief Joe Osceola and members of the Seminole tribe attended the Pow Wow the rst few years, even setting up a Native American village, complete with tee pees, on the eld in front of the re station. "It was like a full western town set up," Meyer said. "They even had fake gun ghts." That very rst Pow Wow dinner also featured a football match between the re ghters and the Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce, Eddinger said. "It was a lot of fun and made sense because they were fundraising for a football eld at the school," he added. The re ghters introduced the Pow Wow Parade by the second year, Kinsey said. "At one time, we used to have about 70 units, back in the beginning." They also used to have more oats, decorated by local businesses and organizations, in the parade. These days, the parade mostly features cars driving through the parade and groups from schools to bands marching. "Cost was a factor, I think," he said. "A oat today costs about $250. Back then, it was nothing." With so many other events featuring parades the Strawberry Festival, the St. Pete Festival, Fun n Sun Clearwater people were overwhelmed by events, he added. After that rst year, the Pow Wow dinner served as a fundraiser for the volunteer re ghters. Before additional taxes were implemented to pay for re services in the city, re ghters went from door to door to asking for donations. "Usually about $25 per household," Meyer said. So these early Pow Wow dinners funded the Seminole Volunteer Fire Department's Men's Association essentially re services in the city, he said. Money raised at these events bought everything from new re trucks to gear for the re ghters. As the Pow Wow chicken dinner grew over the years, it became more dif cult for the re department to handle, Eddinger said. For several years, after a new re station was built, the event was moved to Seminole City Park. But they faced more scrutiny by both city and health department of cials. "With the health department, we couldn't do now what they did then," he said. Kinsey said, "The health department came in on us and it was a major blow. They'd tell us what to do and what we couldn't do." Meyer added, "It became that there were so many regulations that it was no longer fun." Several years before the volunteer department became Seminole Fire Rescue, a professional re com-pany operating as part of the city, in 1995, it stopped hosting the Pow Wow Festival and Parade. There was a gap in the annual festivities at some point no one the Beacon spoke with for this article could remember the year, but all believed it was in the mid-1980s, when the Seminole Volunteer Fire Department was still a mix of volunteer and full-time professional re ghters. When the city took over the event, it was reimagined as a full weekend with more entertainment, food and activities than ever before. Barbara Koyutis, a member of the Seminole Historical Society board, moved to Seminole in 1971, and attended a couple of the early Pow Wows. Later, after the Pow Wow transferred to the city, she participated in the parade with her son-in-law's business and also sat on the Pow Wow Committee. "I think it's absolutely fantastic. I can't believe how much this event has grown," she said. "It's really a lot of fun to get involved." The parade has ebbed and owed over the years, she added. When she sat on the committee a decade ago, they actively pursued local businesses to participate in the parade. "It's great advertising," she said. This year's Pow Wow Festival & Parade celebrates its 50th year in the community with a new generation of Seminole-area residents enjoying the festivities. Those involved in its start can't help but yearn for the early days, though, Kinsey said. "Like I hear from a lot of the other people, they just wish they could have the old chicken dinner," he said. "The old-timers in Seminole wish they had the chicken dinner, but that's not gonna happen." He added, "Back then, we just had a good ol' time. There were a lot of hard-working people cooking all that chicken and making it happen." Photos courtesy of SEMINOLE RECREATIONAbove, below, participants in some of the rst Pow Wow Parades..

The idea snowballed from there. "It all happened so fast," Sunderland said. Moseley said, "Honestly, I kind of thought, this is like a movie. What the hell is happening? The way everything kind of came up, I was like, this is real, right?" Now the couple will exchange vows on the Pow Wow main stage Sunday, March 11, 11:30 a.m., in front of everyone attending this year's festival. Sunderland plans to write her own vows, while Moseley plans to adlib his on stage. She also made her own wedding gown, altering her high school prom dress and instead of a veil, donning a cape that matches the ensemble. After the ceremony, "we're going to go on the rides in full garb," she said. "It's going to be crazy. Lots of fun photos. I don't want to be disrespectful to the whole thing but I de nitely think we're out there." Moseley added, "We're kind of relaxed and have as much fun as we can." The couple met in 2009 through mutual friends during a trip to Tyrone Square Mall. "In true millennial fashion," Sunderland said. She was just 14 at the time, a student at Seminole High School. He was older, 18 years old, and attended Dixie Hollins High School. She was enamored with him from the moment she met him. Because of the age difference, he wouldn't date her though. "I understood that just ne," she said. "I just wanted to be his friend." They became close friends, and when she was 19, following a bad breakup on his end, they decided to nally date; their relationship lasted three days, though. "But something just wasn't right about it," she said. They broke up and lost touch for a period. She tried to move on, but found it dif cult. "Everybody I ever dated before him and every friend I'd ever met who didn't know me when [he and I] were really, really close, I told them about him," Sunderland said. "I'd tell them, Yeah, there's this guy I can't get over, even though I try really hard.'" Then, three years ago, he reached out to her "out of the blue," she said. "And I dropped what I was doing because he was always the one who kind of got away from me. I've always been in love with him, pretty much since we were just friends." He invited her over to hang out, and later told her he was overcome with emotions when she arrived. The timing was nally right for them. "Once we started dating this time, it was very right," she said. "It seemed absolutely right. It was a good time in both of our lives for us to get together." They began dating on Valentine's Day three years ago. She moved in with him August of that year, and they became engaged that December. "But I wasn't in a super rush to get married," she said. "I was just waiting for, again, the timing." So, when their Pow Wow wedding fell into place, she knew it was meant to be. "We're so excited about this," she said. Moseley said, "I'm de nitely looking forward to it. It's going to be a lot of fun. But I get to marry the love of my life. It's going to be awesome." POW WOW, from page 1A


County 5A Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018County staff reveals budget forecast for FY 2019-2024 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County staff presented the ninth annual multi-year budget forecast Feb. 27, covering scal years 2019-2024. The purpose of the stand-alone document is to assess long-term nancial sustainability and understand the effect of decisions made now in the future, according to Jim Abernathy, budget and nancial management analyst. Jim Abernathy highlighted the local economic outlook and reviewed four of the 10 key funds that make up the budget, as well as the potential effect of a third homestead exemption should voters approve it in November. The current economic outlook is good. The county's unemployment rate in December was down to 3.2 percent. The tourism industry continues to bring in record bed tax collections. The median sales price for single-family homes is up 12.7 percent, and taxable values are up 7.9 percent. Thanks to bed tax collections, the Tourist Development Tax Fund is balanced through all six years of the forecast. Abernathy pointed out that bed tax collections had set record highs for six consecutive years and brought in $54.8 million in FY 2017. In FY 2018, $25 million in bed tax is set aside for capital funding projects. The fund does not rely on ad valorem taxes. It is completely sustained by the six cents in taxes collected on accommodation rentals. On the other hand, the sewer fund is not balanced through the forecast period. Abernathy said the Commission had approved multi-year rate increases for FY 2016-2019, which provided revenue to maintain reserves, provide for debtservice payments and continue operations. However, by 2019, major capital projects are expected to deplete reserves. He said a rate study would be done this year to see if additional rate increases would be necessary. Staff also plans to look at reducing planning capital projects to balance the budget. The General Fund budget is balanced throughout the forecast period, if there is no change in homestead exemptions. For the immediate future, no millage rate increases are needed and reserves remain at 15 percent. All is well for now with the Emergency Medical Services Fund. However, the same as the General Fund, the scenario changes if an additional homestead exemption is approved. Abernathy said the statewide ballot initiative is scheduled for the Nov. 6 election. It requires 60 percent approval to pass. If it passes, staff estimates it would reduce money available for the See BUDGET, page 9A 030818 Expires 3/13/18 Exp. 3/13/18 030118 030818


6A Pet Connection Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018Pets of the weekBoth dogs and cats explore their world with their mouths. We see a lot of problems with pets ingesting things that are not meant to be eaten. They do not have the cognitive function to think about the consequences of their actions. Their motto is "if it looks or smells good eat it." One of the most common poisons that we see in practice is ethelyne glycol (anti-freeze) intoxication. This liquid has a sweet taste to it and pets love it. The chemical that lowers the freezing point of your radiator causes havoc with your pet's kidneys after it makes them look like they are drunk. They will stumble and seem demented and sometimes will have vomiting, diarrhea or seizures. When ingested, it causes the liver to change the alcohol in the anti-freeze to a solution that ultimately ends up as oxalic acid and aldehyde, which are very toxic to the kidneys. The treatment for the disease if we can diagnose it soon enough is to give them intravenous ethanol. That is why we keep a bottle of vodka at the clinic, for anti-freeze treatment only of course. This treatment gives the liver something else to do so it can't work on the anti-freeze and the poison is excreted. Some other common poisons that are caused by well-meaning owners when they give their pet a "treat" are xylitol, chocolate and grapes. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that is used in gum and candies. It causes low blood sugar in dogs, which can turn into seizures and death; it does not cause problems in cats. Sorbitol and sucralose is safe for dogs, but a good rule is if it says "sugar free" don't give it to your dog or cat to be safe. Most all homes have chocolate in the form of candy or baking items. It contains methylxanthimes, theobromine and caffeine that if ingested in high enough concentration will cause increase heart rate, increase breathing rate, increase blood pressure and life-threatening heart arrthymias. Milk chocolate has much less of a poison than cocoa powder or Baker's and dark chocolate, but to be safe no chocolate is safest. Grapes cause the same type of clinical signs as anti-freeze, but the exact chemical is still in question. Thankfully, both grapes, raisins and chocolate need to be eaten in fairly large amounts to cause life-threatening problems, but please do not feel safe about knowingly given them to your pet. The number of grapes that are considered toxic seems to be getting smaller all the time. Most toxicologists say even one is cause for alarm. Many of our owners have medical conditions of their own and need to take medicine. Many of these drugs we use in veterinary medicine, but a dog's mentality when something is dropped on the oor is "eat it fast before the mean owner takes away my treat." There is a tremendous size difference in the vast majority of our pets and their owners, so dosing is quite different and at too high a dose most all medicines can cause problem. Always read the label on medication to verify that the right species is getting the right drug. Veterinarians are very helpful in answering questions about most of the common poisons in pets and if they run into one they are not familiar with there are a few "pet poison control hotlines" that for a small fee will have a board-certi ed toxicologist help them with the speci c problem. The best way to avoid problems is for the owners to make a deal with their pets to not take each other's food or medications.

County 9A Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018General Fund by $17 million in FY 2020, $2.3 million for the MSTU (unincorporated Pinellas) and $2.9 million for the EMS fund. "The biggest risk to the forecast that is tangible right now," Abernathy said, is the homestead exemption, pointing out that it is a statewide election, so even if Pinellas votes it down and it passes in the rest of the state, it will go through. To combat lost revenue, staff recommends several potential strategies to balance the budget, including reducing or eliminating service enhancements, reducing or eliminating support for state and federal services, focusing on charter responsibilities and/or millage increases. Some of the services the county now pays for that could be considered for elimination include funding for homeless services, mental and behavioral health services, 211 Tampa Bay Cares, Meals on Wheels, school nurses, educator for Heritage Village and many others. Bill Berger, director of the Of ce of Management and Budget, said even taking away funding for only some of the services might not be enough to make up the losses. Commissioners are concerned about taking away funding given to supplement services, such as meals on wheels and others that are really the responsibility of the federal or state government. "We just have to make some tough decisions," said Commission Chair Ken Welch, "And if we have to raise the millage to keep needed services I have no problem explaining that to the public." Staff will continue to work on the budget with department budget submission scheduled during March and April followed by budget work sessions in April, May and June. The County Administrator will submit his proposed budget in July. Public hearings to adopt next year's budget are scheduled in September. The next scal year begins Oct. 1 For more information, visit Suzette Porter is TBN's Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at sporter@TBNweekly. com.Pinellas County continues mission to add affordable housing By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Many in Pinellas County struggle to nd an affordable place to live. The availability of housing for minimum wage workers is not adequate to meet the needs. Kathryn Driver, executive director of Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County, talked about the problem at the Feb. 27 Pinellas County Commission meeting. She said in Pinellas, the Fair Market Rent for a twobedroom apartment is $1,014. To afford rent and utilities on that apartment, a household must earn $3,380 a month to avoid paying more than 30 percent of their income on housing. If a person worked a 40-hour workweek, 52 weeks a year, it would take an hourly wage of $19.50 to afford a Fair Market Rent two-bedroom apartment in this county. Minimum wage in Florida is $8.10. In other words, a household would need to have 2.4 full-time minimum wage jobs just to pay rent and utilities. That's a problem for single parents, seniors and even two-person households. It's also a problem for anybody who lives paycheck to paycheck, who might not have paid sick leave or savings for an emergency. The HFA of Pinellas County was created by state statute to alleviate the shortage of affordable housing. It is a dependent special district of the county. It has programs to help rst-time homebuyers and to assist lowto moderate-income renters among others. The county's housing program includes the Community Housing Trust Fund and the Affordable Housing Land Assembly Fund. The HFA administers both through an interlocal agreement with the County Commission. From 2006-2016, Housing Trust Fund money was allocated to HFA, Pinellas County, Clearwater, Largo and St. Petersburg. More than 2,000 units of affordable housing have been provided. The County Commission contributed more than $19.2 million to the fund. The program generated nearly $5.6 million. Outside sources contributed nearly $212.4 million. The result was 219 units made available for special needs residents, 195 units for households who make 50 percent of Area Median Income, 751 units for households who make 60 percent of AMI, 95 units for those who make 80 percent AMI and 592 units for household who make 120 percent of AMI. AMI in Pinellas County is $59,800 for a four-person household. Thirty percent AMI for a four-person household is $24,600, 50 percent is $29,900, 60 percent is $35,880, 80 percent is $47,850 and 120 percent AMI is $71,760 for a four-person household. The AMI income is lower with fewer persons in a home. For example, for a one-person household, 30 percent AMI is only $12,600. The Land Assembly Fund receives Penny for Pinellas money, which can be used only for acquisition. The land purchased is held in separate land trusts and affordability of housing units constructed by others on that land is ensured for 99 years with the right to renew for another 99 years. Through this program, 360 new affordable housing units will become available and another 160 units will be preserved. The majority, 80 percent, is for households at 60 percent AMI or lower. Driver reviewed the inventory of properties in the program, including those that have been completed, those still under construction and those still in the closing process.FAST wants assurancesMore money for affordable housing will come from Penny for Pinellas during the years 2020-2030. Of the $2 billion in revenue estimated to be collected during the 10 years, 8.3 percent is dedicated to economic development and affordable housing. Faith and Action for Strength Together, commonly referred to as FAST, a local organization comprised of 40 church congregations, continues to ask commissioners to commit 4.15 percent of that money to affordable housing. Six of the seven commissioners have verbally committed to spending 4.15 percent; however, FAST wants it in writing. Several members showed up at the Feb. 27 meeting to speak on the issue. "Right now, the written plan says that 8.3 percent will be spent on affordable housing and economic development," said the Rev. Robert Ward of Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in St. Petersburg. "We know when push comes to show, the needs of the poor never win out over businesses. That's why we want the commission to pass an ordinance that would make sure at least 4.15 percent gets spent on affordable housing." Commissioners say that understand the concerns of FAST members, but pointed out that even if an ordinance was passed, it could be changed in the future. The recommendation was to make sure elected leaders in the future have a commitment to affordable housing.Habitat for HumanityA major partner in the county's crusade to create more affordable housing is Habitat for Humanity. Last year, the organization built 59 new homes and served 18 families through its Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, according to Mike Sutton, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County. To date, 1,300 Habitat homes have been built in Pinellas, making the local organization the second largest in nation based on new construction. The largest is in Collier County, Sutton said. The County Commission donated some of the land where the new homes were built, including several parcels in the Danville area of Largo. On Feb. 27, commissioners unanimously approved giving Habitat nine parcels in the Greater Ridgecrest area also near Largo to construct additional affordable housing. Sutton said it was a misconception that Habitat "gave away houses." He said the homeowners do work in exchange for their new houses. In addition, they pay taxes with more than $496,000 paid collectively by Habitat homeowners in 2017. Sutton thanked commissioners for their help. "We're so blessed to have support throughout the county," he said. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

10A Viewpoints Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018WASHINGTON For President Donald Trump, the family that works together works best. But the appearance of con icts of interest with senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, the inappropriate behavior of Kushner and Trump family members who don't work in the administration, and Trump's remaining ties to his family-run billion-dollar empire add up to a picture that makes the opportunistic Clinton Foundation look like, well, a charity. When president-elect Trump picked Kushner for a top slot, the pick signaled that the unconventional candidate would continue to out convention in of ce by hiring (a) a family member, (b) a successful businessman with little experience in politics, and (c) someone with no experience in the military or public of ce for a plum political post. Supporters largely shrugged off charges of nepotism. Trump always said that he would hire outsiders to shake up Washington, they argued. Perhaps the outside-the-beltway approach that won Trump the White House would produce results in the push for Middle East peace which he added to Kushner's portfolio and other efforts where career bureaucrats had failed. Also at the time, Kushner impressed many as a moderating in uence on Trump. In a country that prides itself for being a meritocracy, however, Barbara Perry, of the University of Virginia's Miller Center thinks it's wrong for elected of cials to hire family members when they should be looking for the best staffers. President Lyndon Johnson clearly thought the same when he signed an anti-nepotism bill seen as a rebuke of the late President John F. Kennedy's choice of attorney general, his brother Bobby. (In January 2017, a Justice Department career attorney determined that the law applied to agency staff, not White House staff.) And face it, there's been a dynastic element to Ivanka Trump's behavior. When she sat in her father's seat at the G20 meeting in Hamburg last year, scolds thought the act of assuming an unearned place of power showed disrespect to other world leaders. Last month while representing the United States at the Olympics in Seoul, Ivanka Trump chastised NBC's Peter Alexander when he asked the senior adviser if she believed women who accused her father of sexual harassment. She told Alexander she believed her father, and said the question was "inappropriate" to ask the president's daughter. Perry sees an undemocratic element to political dynasties, established or in the making. In a meritocracy, the cream rises to the top. When politicians hire family members, they're not necessarily picking the best aides, so much as the most loyal. In real life, Kushner has saddled Trump with bad headlines, which Trump had no trouble garnering on his own. Kushner's participation in the Russian Trump Tower meeting left him exposed in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Last week The New York Times reported on two large loans made to Kushner's family's after principals met with Kushner in the White House. During the transition, Kushner met with foreign investors, even as he was seeking capital for a large New York property facing more than $1 billion in debt. Spokespersons say there is no relationship between the meetings and Kushner's business. Indeed, the meetings did not lead to any inappropriate transactions. But it doesn't make the administration look good. Last week, The Washington Post reported that intelligence of cials had learned that China, Israel, Mexico and the United Arab Emirates had looked into how they could manipulate Kushner "by taking advantage of his complex business arrangement, nancial dif culties and lack of foreign policy experience." Kushner's top-secret security clearance was downgraded so that he no longer has access to the presidential daily intelligence brie ngs, which he liked to peruse. No surprise there, observed the Miller Center's Perry. Connections with other governments, severe debt and bad personal behavior are red ags that can doom a background check. "He sends up two of the red ags." Like the Clintons, the Trumps have seemed oblivious to how their nancial ties present multiple appearances of potential con icts of interest. Trump, his daughter and Kushner are all working without pay. All three have relinquished management control over some businesses, but not necessarily their ownership share. So there is no way to separate Trump from his properties. When GOP donors attend a fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago, the president stands to pro t. The president set up a fund for pro ts from foreign visitors who stay at his hotels the proceeds are supposed to go to charity but that scheme does not interrupt pro ts from U.S. special interests who spend money at Trump properties. Last month, eldest son Donald Trump Jr. traveled to India "as a businessman." But there was no escaping his promotion of high-rise properties that brandished the Trump name across India. In May, Kushner's sister, Nicole Kushner Meyer, was caught trying to woo potential investors in Beijing with the potential to win investor visas to the U.S. at an event that billed her as the senior adviser's sister. The New York Times reported that Kushner Companies, the senior adviser's family business, received super-size loans from two businessmen who met with Kushner in the White House. Spokespersons for Kushner, the company and businesses told the Times there was no connection between the meetings and the loans but these are issues voters have to take on faith. And it's not as if the president cannot nd quali ed individuals who don't carry Kushner's baggage. "Each of these individual stories could have been the end" of another president, said Perry. An ad campaign for an air freshening product warns how consumers can become "nose blind" that is, blind to certain smells because they have lingered for so long. She offered, "I've kind of become Trump blind, deaf to all the noise." Contact Debra J. Saunders at or 202-6627391. Follow @DebraJSaunders on Twitter. Not long ago a breath of badly-needed fresh air was injected into the news broadcasting business. It took the form of Newsy, a video news network and cable news channel. It specializes in several things. One of them is a refusal to engage in the "You're a right-wing fascist!" and "You're a left-wing commie!" warfare that so many news outlets seem to be taking part in today. A second welcome trait is Newsy's style of TV presentation. It is brief and to the point. For each news item, the camera hits on a young man or woman, wearing ordinary street clothing, who delivers the essential guts of the news story in maybe 30 seconds. That's it. Then on to the next presenter and the next news clip. No sixexpert panel of analysts or alleged experts. No tedious, 20-minute evisceration of the news event and its possible consequences in the months ahead. What a relief. Thirdly, Newsy seems to believe that (1) places other than the USA and Washington, D.C. exist, and (2) political happenings, no matter their point of origin, do not necessarily outrank other news topics. If this attitude could be converted into a bene cial disease, I would pray for its infecting ABC, NBC, Fox, MSNBC and a dozen or so other national news TV outlets. Finally, as far as I can tell, Newsy does not pander to viewers who delight in watching interviews with weeping relatives and friends following the deaths of loved ones. This often re ects TV networks' ceaseless quest for higher TV ratings more than a desire to show genuine emotion. Newsy is owned by the E.W. Scripps broadcasting company. Newsy's headquarters are in Columbia, Missouri; other offices are in Chicago, Denver, Washington, D.C. and Cincinnati.During a 24-minute span on a recent afternoon, I watched as Newsy gave its news-headline treatment to a wide variety of 15 separate news stories. During that same amount of time, the panelists assembled on screen by the big boys (CNN, Fox, NBC et al.) would have barely begun to clear their throats. Did I end up with an in-depth thorough knowledge of the 15 news items? Of course not. That's what Google, Wikipedia and other websites are there for, if and when we really need to know. The term "unbiased" is sprinkled through Newsy's self-descriptions. The company seems intent on staying clear of the "us vs. them" political and economic warfare that is tearing our country apart today. Instead, Newsy takes viewers around the world to get glimpses of actual warfare, plus brief but informative looks at less-bloody events in dozens of news categories. In addition to its 24/7 broadcasts, Newsy presents "Why," a 7-to-9 p.m. TV program each weeknight. It's Newsy's way of digging deeper into one or more important or at least very interesting aspects of today's worldwide panorama. (At this point, a full-disclosure admission: I live near Boston, where Newsy's TV broadcasts are available. I assumed that they would also be shown in the Tampa Bay area. I was mistaken; after writing most of this column, I learned that at present the Scripps organization does not have a Newsy TV outlet in this region. However, on March 1 a spokeswoman told me that Scripps is trying hard to establish one. When that day arrives my 38 Faithful Readers may understand why I turn on my TV set to Newsy several times each day.) Is skimming the tops of daily events the perfect answer to the problem of keeping track of this global nut-house you and I live in? Of course not. In an ideal world we'd all spend at least an hour a day reading printed accounts of what's going on. And there would be no never-ending medical and car insurance advertisements to interrupt our attention. Additionally, Newsy may face the same temptations that the big networks do: succumbing to points of view that violate the principles of objective journalism, plus the uploading of more commercials than are justi ed. Also, as time passes, some fans may drift away if Newsy fails to develop big-name newscasters like Wolf Blitzer, Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow, Laura Ingraham, Lester Holt and others.But that's in the realm of tomorrow. Today I must say: America needs Newsy. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ voices in opioid debateAnyone who follows the news knows that opioid abuse and drug deaths are a national problem; 63,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in 2016, an increase of 21 percent over 2015. Opioid deaths in Florida increased to 5,725 in 2016, a 35 percent increase over the previous year. It is important to remember that opioid abuse covers a range of things, including street drugs and prescription opioids. Of the 63,000 drug deaths in 2016, most were not related to prescriptions from doctors. Fentanyl, which attracted national attention due to the death of Michael Jackson, accounted for 19,000 deaths. Most of these deaths came from illegally made pills or powder that was then mixed with heroin or other drugs. Most of the fentanyl was illegally imported from China. Heroin accounted for 15,500 of the drug deaths. No physician prescribed this for their patients. Pain meds accounted for 14,500 deaths, but less than one-third of opioid abusers got their drugs from a doctor. Everyone wants to reduce drug deaths, but the legislature must adopt a plan that focuses on the real problem. Most drug deaths do not come from doctor-prescribed pain meds, so the plan to attack drug abuse must concentrate on the real source of the problem. Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature are focusing on abuse of prescription opioids. This is important, but the Legislature must realize that this is not the primary source of drug abuse. They must also be careful not to impose burdens on Floridians who need the pain meds prescribed by their doctor. We all want to eliminate illegal drug use and limit the over-prescription of drugs to those suffering from temporary pain. At the same time, we must realize that individuals suffering from a terminal illness, chronic pain or major surgery should not be denied access to pain meds that will allow them to function with minimal pain. That decision should be made by the doctor, not the Legislature. It is estimated that 11 percent of Americans suffer from chronic pain. This is a particular problem for the elderly, and Florida has more elderly citizens than any state. I have had chronic pain since age 12. When I was 20, I could no longer sit in my university classes because of the pain. I was forced to withdraw from classes and had my rst major back surgery. My physician wrote the draft board, which had just requested I appear for my physical, that I was un t to serve due to "chronic discogenic back pain." That surgery would be the first of three major back surgeries. I have had seven surgeries total, and ve were major surgical procedures. This does not include more than a dozen other medical procedures ranging from numerous epidurals to a procedure where surgeons attempted to thread a wire up my spinal canal. Nor does it count the osteoarthritis that led to a total knee replacement. I worry about the proposed threeand seven-day limits on pain meds. This means that many Floridians will no longer be able to travel to visit friends and family because they won't be able to get their pain meds. Vacations, especially overseas, will no longer be possible. Many pain patients are elderly and will have dif culty seeing a doctor every three to seven days. Instead of one visit to a pain specialist a month, patients must now visit the doctor as many as 10 times a month. The cost will be prohibitive for many patients. Then imagine the dif culty of going to the pharmacy every three to seven days. Prescription costs will skyrocket. Many in need of pain meds will likely go days without their meds because of the new guidelines. Withdrawal will happen. Melissa Sanders-Self, a teacher who suffers from neuroendocrine cancer who must have radiation treatments every three weeks, describes her withdrawal symptoms because she often cannot get the pain meds the doctor has prescribed. Sanders-Self writes: "Without medicines, I begin to vomit, shake and cry. I cannot concentrate." Every chronic pain patient can relate to her experiences. A nal issue is that the Legislature is attempting to become the doctor. Remember when Republicans across the nation opposed "Obamacare" because they said it interfered with the doctor/patient relationship. Isn't that precisely what the Legislature is now doing by dictating what medicines we may have and in what quantity? We can cut down on illegal drug use, but we must realize that most problems do not come from doctors prescribing pain meds for their patients. The Legislature does have a responsibility to see that Floridians who have documented pain needs can get the medicines they need. Imposing additional time and nancial costs on those who are already suffering from severe medical problems is hardly compassionate.

County 11A Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018Pinellas County celebrates another good year of tourism By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Beautiful weather, miles of sandy beaches coupled with a clever plan to market the destination has resulted in another good year for Pinellas County's tourism. David Downing, president and CEO for Visit St. Pete-Clearwater, presented a "snapshot" of December statistics and a report on statistics from January-December 2017 during the Feb. 21 Tourist Development Council meeting. According to the report, local hoteliers sold 5,216,603 rooms in 2017, a 6.3 percent increase over 2016. The average daily rate was $143.31, up 3.2 percent from last year. The revenue per available room was $102.82, a hike of 5.1 percent. And tourist development tax money rolled in with collections of more than $56 million up 8.5 percent from last year. December was a good month with a 12 percent increase in the number of rooms sold with an average daily rate up 4.9 percent from last December, giving hoteliers a 10.2 percent increase in revenue per available room. The county collected nearly $3.94 million in tourist development taxes, a 14.83 percent hike over 2016. Downing said the county had enjoyed 52 straight months of growth in tourist development tax collections year-over-year. And, according to a forecast from Smith Travel Research, the county's tourism industry should continue to grow through at least the rst quarter of 2019. Part of the success of the county's tourism market is attributable to the marketing campaigns by Visit St. Pete-Clearwater, including those designed to entice those who live in areas, such as New York City, where it is cold in the wintertime to come visit.Airbnb contributes to local economyVisit St. Pete-Clearwater recently added a portal to its website ( allowing visitors to book Airbnb accommodations. Kenny Montilla, Mobilization Program director for Airbnb, presented information Feb. 21 about how the service worked and contributes to the local economy. The concept began 10 years ago when three guys needed a way to make money to pay the rent. They rented out space in their home, which sparked the birth of Airbnb. The company now allows others to supplement their income by renting out a room or rooms in their home. Montilla says Airbnb's website has 140 million users and the vacation rental platform is available in 191 countries. Airbnb provides an economic opportunity for homeowners and a way to "enable anyone to belong anywhere." And the company contributes to the local economy. In 2015, Airbnb collaborated with the Florida Department of Revenue on an agreement to collect and remit state sales tax on behalf of 40,000 vacation rental hosts in the state. That same year, Airbnb began working with the state's counties to collect and remit tourist development (bed) taxes. Pinellas County was one of the rst to make an agreement with Airbnb. Because of these agreements, in 2017, Airbnb paid in more than $33 million in sales tax to the DOR and $12.7 million was shared among the 39 counties that now have an agreement for bed tax collections. Pinellas County received $1.87 million in bed tax revenue. Some TDC members expressed concerned about Airbnb competing with others that provide lodging in the county. Montilla said Airbnb's intent was not to compete with existing hotels but to provide guests with accommodations in specific neighborhoods. He said 91 percent of those using Airbnb wanted to say local. They like to visit favorite venues recommended by their hosts. They support local businesses that might not be located in places such as Clearwater Beach. He said 71 percent of Airbnb hosts were located outside main tourist areas. He also said the typical person using Airbnb stayed 2.1 times longer than at traditional lodging and spent 1.8 times more money with 41 percent of that spending in local neighborhoods. TDC members asked if Airbnb hosts had to meet re, health and other regulations. They asked if they had re inspections the same as hotels, motels and other lodging facilities. Montilla said they did not have the same regulations since they are homes, not hotels. "That's not to say that some safety measures should be taken," he said. But, he said renting a bedroom in someone's home was different than using a hotel, adding that a "safer place is better for all parties." TDC member Eric Waltz, general manager for the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach, believes Airbnb is competition for local hoteliers. He said they should be on the "same playing eld" with the same regulations and rules and visits from the re marshal. Joanne Kennedy, TDC member and Indian Rocks Beach commission, talked about pending state legislation that would prohibit local governments from regulating rentals. Kennedy has rental property, so she feels "caught in the middle." However, she said something needed to be done about short-term rental properties that become party houses and cause problems with noise and parking. "We want people to be able to make money and supplement income," she said. Montilla said Airbnb can regulate host accommodations and didn't want to advertise party houses or those that cause a problem with trash or noise. He said if enough complaints came in about a property, they would be removed from the platform. He said it was the host's responsibility to research local regulations about renting out rooms or their home. He said they are encouraged to reach out to the local clerk or city councilperson. "If they cause a nuisance, we will reach out and take care of it," he said. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

12A Schools Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018School Board supports governor’s safety plan, opposes arming teachersMembers favor a ban on military-style semi-automatic assault weapons By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Pinellas County School Board members voted unanimously Feb. 27 to support Gov. Rick Scott's action plan and funding proposals to keep students safe. Of cials also expressed opposition to a plan to train and arm teachers. In a separate vote, members agreed 6-1 to support a ban on militarystyle semi-automatic assault weapons, as proposed by Board member Linda Lerner, and to encourage other school boards in the state and nation to consider doing the same. Board member Carol Cook voted no. School Superintendent Michael Grego traveled to Tallahassee Feb. 20 to participate in one of three workshops hosted by Scott to address school safety in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which killed 17 people. Scott held three separate workshops education, mental health and child welfare, and law enforcement. Grego took part in the one with other education of cials. Grego told School Board members that he had spent the two weeks, since the shooting in Parkland, "entrenched" in the subject of school safety. He talked about Scott's proposal that came out of the Feb. 20 workshops and the work being done by the House and Senate, including passage of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act by the Senate Feb. 26. "The shooting in Parkland brought our state to what it feels like a boiling point a call to action, so to speak," he said. "But this action, let me be honest, is long overdue." He said looking at recent history in the state and country, "it is absolutely appalling that we have taken as long as we have to reach this point." "When we experienced Sandy Hook in 2012, this country was shaken," Grego said. "How could such a thing happen to elementary school children? Since then, nothing really, truly has been done. That's the sad note." Grego noted that since 2012 there have been 239 school shootings nationwide, 438 people shot and 138 killed. And that doesn't count other mass shootings, such as the church in Texas or the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. "It is my sincere hope that we begin to end the discussion about this and translate into some level of action," he said. He thanked school leaders, teachers and support staff for what they've been doing for students to help them since the Feb. 14 shooting. He thanked parents for "expressing" and encouraged them to write to him, school board members and school principals about their child's campus and safety. He said local law enforcement agencies were doing a "remarkable job" of paying attention to every threat no matter how incredible it might appear. "No matter what we do, no matter the perspective that it might be we all want the same outcome and that is to never see a school shooting happen here or anywhere else, and we need to do enough now so we'll never nd ourselves in this predicament or in this situation again," he said. The school district is looking at opportunities to improve school safety. The Board met in executive session Feb. 20 to make plans to work on security and training. The governor's plan aims at keeping guns out of the hands of people who would misuse them, Grego said. It would increase the age from 18 to 21 or older to be able to purchase a gun with exceptions for active military personnel, law enforcement and some others. It would ban bump stocks, which Grego said, using words of a middle-school student, is a "no-brainer." The governor's plan would enhance penalties for threats made to schools via social media, which is not included in the Senate's bill. Scott's plan also would make it mandatory to have a school resource of cer in every school that must be a sworn deputy or police of cer. The governor proposed a ratio of one SRO per 1,000 students with consideration given to the size of the campus. The ratio is not in the Senate's plan, he said. "Scott does not support arming teachers and I absolutely agree with that," Grego said. School Board members agreed. Grego said while some teachers might be capable of handling a gun, not all would be. He believes students need the very best trained to protect them, which would be law enforcement personnel. "Teachers don't sign up for that. They sign on to teach and nurture students," he said. Grego does agree that students and faculty should undergo active shooter training. He also agrees with the governor's proposal to increase funding for Safe Schools to provide money for metal detectors, bulletproof glass and other protective measures. However, he said the idea to provide additional funding comes up after every school shooting, but nothing ever happens. Grego also supports Scott's plan to establish a new anonymous K-12 "See Something, Say Something" campaign, which would include a dedicated hotline, website and mobile app. Access to mental health counselors also is part of the governor's plan. Each school would be required to have a threat assessment team. Grego said Pinellas already has a threat committee, but it doesn't include everything in the governor's proposal. The district also has a safety and security council, safety and security team, giving Pinellas the structure to build on to create a team based on the governor's plan. Scott's plan includes $50 million in funding for mental health initiatives, which was not included in the Senate's plan, Grego said. He said if the house included it in its plan, then negotiations might get the funding. School Board member Eileen Long said mental health had to be the No. 1 issue with help available not just for students but for all age groups. She said no matter what the weapon was used in tragedies, such as mass shootings, mental health was always the underlying issue. Grego said the governor's plan was a "not a quick x" but it did address some actions. "There is nothing more important that the safety of our children," he said, adding that the governor's plan was a "good start" towards getting weapons out of the hand of people who shouldn't have guns. "We pray it never happens here," he said. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

TAMPA – Red-haired ’80s pop sensation Tiffany will perform Sunday, March 18, 7:30 p.m., in Jaeb Theater at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $34.50. Call 813-229-7827 or 800955-1045. Visit www. Tiffany charmed America with her legendary mall tour that gave a generation “I Think We’re Alone Now” and “Could’ve Been.” From skyrocketing teen success, Tiffany settled in the tight-knit Nashville songwriting community in her adult years – which led to her acclaimed EP “Rose Tattoo” and latest album “A Million Miles.” Tiffany’s record “The Color of Silence” landed in Billboard’s Top 10 Best Albums of 2000. This storied singer appears with a pop-country concert packed with her greatest hits and more. Growing up in Norwalk, California, Tiffany had dreams of becoming a country singer at a very early age. She started singing the songs of her favorite country artists Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and Emmylou Harris. By age 9 she was performing with her own band. The following year she was discovered by legendary country music songwriters Hoyt and Mae Axton, who first brought Tiffany to Nashville, Tennessee. Although she opened for country stars and performed on various Nashville television programs, major record labels were not interested in signing the young singer because of her age. She returned to Los Angeles, and within four years she became an international pop superstar going on to sell over 16 million albums. Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018Joshua Radin to perform March 13 at Capitol TheatreCLEARWATER – Joshua Radin will perform Tuesday, March 13, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $34.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthe Love and the complications surrounding it have long proven to be Radin’s songwriting forte. Though he never intended to be a live performer, there was little choice when the rst song he ever wrote, “Winter,” was featured on an episode of “Scrubs.” The resulting fervor around the song soon led to a record deal, and over the last decade, Radin has toured the world countless times, sold hundreds of thousands of records and topped the iTunes charts, earned raves from Rolling Stone Magazine to The Guardian, performed on “The Tonight Show,” “Conan” and more. He performed at Ellen DeGeneres’ wedding at her personal request and had his songs featured in more than 150 different lms, commercials and TV shows. Radin, born in Cleveland and now living in Los Angeles, released his latest studio LP, “The Fall” in 2017. “The Fall” is a 10-track collection of Radin’s personal stories told with raw, tremulous vocals with soothing and heartfelt songs. “‘The Fall’ is my seventh studio album but it’s the rst album I’ve produced myself, so this feels like the most honest work I’ve released in my 12-year career,” said Radin in a press release from Wilspro Artist Management. Special guest William Fitzsimmons also will perform. Fitzsimmons is known best for his hot songs such as “I Don’t Feel It Anymore,” “So This Is Goodbye,” and “It’s Not True.” Photo courtesy of CAPITOL THEATREJoshua Radin plays March 13 at Capitol Theatre in Clearwater.

Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light. Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.‘Gringo’Genre: Comedy and action Cast: David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried, Thandie Newton and Photo courtesy of AMAZON STUDIOS/STX ENTERTAINMENTFrom left, David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron and Joel Edgerton star in “Gringo.”Photo courtesy of THE ROOTS AGENCYThe Irish Rovers play Capitol Theatre March 10.

CLEARWATER – The Irish Rovers will bring their Unicorn Tour to Pinellas with one performance Saturday, March 10, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $39. Call 727-791-7400 or visit The Irish Rovers have charmed and entertained audiences around the world with their exciting stage shows for nearly 50 years. The past year has seen them excite yet another generation by returning to the radio airwaves, expanding their visibility on YouTube and returning to the small screen with two television specials in the last two years. It was 50 years ago that The Irish Rovers had a breakout hit with “The Unicorn,” their second album. The album and title track took them from folk clubs in America to concert halls and television sets worldwide. This tour is a tribute to that collection of songs and one particular ditty that left a mystery for a generation, “Whatever happened to the unicorns?” The current tour supports the 2017 album release of “The Unicorn, The Continuing Story.” According to the Roots Agency, the story of the Rovers begins in 1963 in Canada, where the 16-year old George Millar and 23-year old Jim Ferguson, both new emigrants from Northern Ireland, met in Toronto at an Irish function. They ended up singing together until dawn. That night, the Irish Rovers were launched. They performed as a duo until George’s cousin, Joe Millar, immigrated to Canada the following year. Joe, who sang traditional ballads and played button-key, was recruited as he stepped off the plane. George’s musician father Bob Millar, who was also a button key accordion player, became the band’s rst manager. For the next several months he guided the new band which started their career playing folk song festivals, clubs, hootenannies, The Port o’ Call, and Toronto’s Royal Alexandra Hotel. George, Jimmy and Joe left Toronto for Calgary to stay with brother Will who was singing folk songs at Phil’s Pancake House which led to a daily Photo courtesy of THE ROOTS AGENCYThe Irish Rovers perform March 10 at Clearwater’s Capitol Theatre.

Mike Garson is the Celebrating David Bowie band leader after having made his mark on numerous Bowie albums, including his much talked about masterly solo on the “Aladdin Sane” track. Garson was Bowie’s longest and most frequent band member. They performed together for both Bowie’s rst and last concerts in the United States as well as 1,000 concerts around the globe in between. Legendary guitarist Earl Slick, who worked on landmark Bowie albums such as “Diamond Dogs,” “Young Americans” and “Reality,” is on board in North America along with Bowie band leader Gerry Leonard (A Reality Tour) and Bowie’s Let’s Dance/Serious Moonlight Tour bassist Carmine Rojas. Between them, they have over 30 years of experience of recording, writing and playing live with Bowie. Also joining the tour will be CdB 2017 standouts including vocalist Bernard Fowler, who is known for his work with The Rolling Stones, along with 2017 Grammy nominee Gaby Moreno, plus special guests and other former Bowie band members who may make surprise appearances along the way.

This annual concert event offers audiences an opportunity to cruise back in time to relive the greatest hits from America’s Doo Wop era. This year’s lineup will feature performances by Bobby Rydell, The Crests featuring Tommy Mara, Lou Christie and Rock & Roll Hall of Famers The Coasters. Bobby Rydell made his debut in the late ’50s as a rock and roll teen idol starring in movie roles such as “Bye, Bye Birdie” and plays such as “West Side Story.” He was a semi-regular on the “Red Skelton Show” and “American Bandstand.” His recording career earned him 34 Top 40 records, which puts him in the top ve of all single artists from his era. Rydell’s hits include the million selling singles “Volare,” “Wild One,” “We Got Love” and “Forget Him.” With the blessing of original lead singer Johnny Maestro, Tommy Mara took over the lead singing duties and today Tommy Mara and The Crests continue to wow audiences around the world performing many hit songs including “16 Candles,” which rose to No. 2 on the Billboard chart and sold more than one million copies. Born in Brooklyn, Mara has been dubbed the Pavarotti of Doo Wop. His brilliant career has encompassed three genres of music. Mara has performed with the who’s who in the music industry. Lou Christie’s chart-topping, multi-million selling career as a songwriter, recording artist and performer started in a two-track studio in Glenwillard, Pennsylvania, his rural hometown near Pittsburgh. Born as Lugee Alfredo Giovanni Sacco, his first million-selling song – “The Gypsy Cried” – transformed him from a teenage choirboy into a national teen idol. Through the 1960s, Christie followed his rst success with even greater successes. “Two Faces Have I” was his next big hit featuring his stratospheric falsetto. Christie forever embedded himself and his uniquely talented voice into America’s consciousness with his No. 1 multi-million selling success “Lightning Strikes.” His chart-topping success continued with two more million selling hits: “Rhapsody in the Rain” and “I’m Gonna Make You Mine.” “Down in Mexico,” The Coasters’ rst hit, was released in 1956. In 1957, the hit the charts with the double-sided smash “Young Blood” and “Searchin’” which put them on the road to a long career. It was 1958 when The Coasters released two of their biggest hits. “Yakety Yak” and “Charlie Brown” stayed on the Billboard Top 10 list for several weeks, with “Yakety Yak” sitting in the No. 1 spot followed by “Charlie Brown” at No. 2. The Coasters continued to roll out hit after hit, with songs such as “Poison Ivy,” “Along Came Jones,” “Little Egypt” and “Love Potion No. 9.” LOCAL Spring SpecialIncludes bottle of wine, entree, soup or salad, and dessert.

5B Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018St. Patrick’s Day is here. To celebrate, one can certainly binge on corned beef, down a pint or two of Guinness or display shamrocks in all of their Kelly green glory. But there are many other ways to celebrate Ireland and its rich culture and history. Music lovers who can’t pass up a good tune can use St. Patrick’s Day as an excuse to explore the music of Ireland and the many musicians who the island has spawned. U2: U2 formed in 1976 in Dublin, but it wasn’t until the group’s fth album, “The Joshua Tree,” released in 1987, that they became international superstars. That album produced U2’s only No. 1 singles to date in the United States, “With or Without You,” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” However, the band continues to be a driving force in music as well as sociopolitical activism. U2 is made up of Bono, the Edge, Larry Mullen, Jr., and Adam Clayton. Glen Hansard: Hansard was part of both The Frames and the duo The Swell Season and has recently been performing on his own and collaborating with many other musicians. Hansard was rst introduced to the world after appearing in the BAFTA-winning lm “The Commitments,” as well as starring in the lm “Once” with his The Swell Season partner Markta Irglov. The movie earned Hansard an Academy Award for the song “Falling Slowly.” Hansard cites Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison as in uences. Van Morrison: Speaking of Van Morrison, he was born in Belfast as George Ivan Morrison in 1945. Morrison rose to prominence in the 1960s as the lead singer of the Irish R&B band Them. He then began his solo career in the late 1960s with the release of “Astral Weeks.” Morrison’s best-loved songs include “Brown-Eyed Girl,” “Domino” and “Wild Night.” Flogging Molly: While lead singer Dave King is a native of Dublin, his band, Flogging Molly, was formed in Los Angeles. A Celtic punk band with heavy-metal roots, Flogging Molly fuses traditional Irish music and rock. Before making it big, Flogging Molly was a weekly staple at Molly Malone’s pub in Los Angeles. Among the band’s most popular tunes is “If I Ever Leave This World Alive.” The Cranberries: Fronted by Limerick vocalist Dolores O’Riordan, who died suddenly in early 2018, The Cranberries have dabbled in indie pop, punk, Irish folk, and other musical elements. Their 1993 debut studio album, “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?”, became a fast commercial success. The Dubliners: Founded in Dublin in 1962, the band was originally known as The Ronnie Drew Ballad Group and was instrumental in bringing lively Irish folk songs to Europe and elsewhere. The band spanned more than 50 years with various lineups and in uenced other Irish artists like The Pogues and The Dropkick Murphys. Beyond these performers, The Script, Thin Lizzy, Damien Rice, Stiff Little Fingers, Snow Patrol, and Enya are some of the other talented musicians to come from Ireland.Ireland is a small island nation, but its diminutive size does not mean it doesn’t have a storied history. Celtic in uences and Christianity have played a strong role in helping Ireland become what it is today. Prior to the arrival of Christianity, there was not much written history of Ireland, as much information was passed through rich but spoken tales. It’s believed the Celtic culture began to evolve in Ireland between 800 and 400 BC. The ancient Celts were various tribes living in several parts of Europe north of the Mediterranean. Although it’s easy to imagine Celtic warriors invading Ireland like the Vikings and Normans did many years later, historians believe the Celts integrated their customs more gradually through trade and travel. The last of the Celts to arrive in Ireland, the Goidelic and Gaelic, are perhaps best known for their in uences on the country. St. Patrick is revered and celebrated for bringing Christianity to Ireland, but in his book, “The Story of Ireland,” Irish author Neil Hegarty states that early Christians were most likely Britons who were brought to Ireland as slaves. In 431 A.D. Bishop Palladius arrived from Rome to minister to any “Irish believing in Christ.” However, St. Patrick is more widely credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. Proximity to Britain put Ireland in the eyes of the monarchy. In 1167, Anglo-Normans under the direction of England’s King Henry II were able to take possession of the island. When Henry VIII became king in 1541, Ireland became formally united under the British crown. The area that would eventually be called Northern Ireland has seen its share of con ict. In 1601, Scottish farmers, craftsmen and other settlers arrived at the port of Donaghadee to create the Plantation of Ulster, a British (Protestant) settlement. Gaelic landowners were expelled, and this area would be in turmoil for a century to come. An effort to regain an Irish-controlled country and one that supported Catholicism became a common theme in Irish history. The Irish Catholic Confederation was one attempt to do just that, as was the Irish Rebellion of 1798. In 1829, Daniel O’Connell’s Catholic Association frightened the British with the threat of anarchy in Ireland. The Easter Rising in 1916, which seized key government buildings in Dublin, would help set the course for the Irish War of Independence. In this uprising, the Irish Republican Army fought against British security forces. As a result of this uprising, Northern Ireland, a small area of the island, was partitioned to become a British-controlled area. From 1916 to 1937, Ireland held the status of a dominion. In 1937, a new constitution was adopted and Ireland became a republic, though Northern Ireland remained under British control. Northern Ireland continued to be a conflict-driven portion of the island, and tensions boiled over when British soldiers shot 28 unarmed civilians during a peaceful protest on January 30, 1972, in Derry. Known as “Bloody Sunday,” or the “Bogside Massacre,” this incident was just one of many signi cant events that were ultimately referred to as “The Troubles.” More peaceful interactions have occurred in recent years thanks in part to the Good Friday Agreement signed in 1998. Today, Ireland ranks among the 25 wealthiest countries in the world. Though Irish history has its fair share of turmoil, the country has endured and is today among the most in uential nations in the world.Events that helped shape IrelandPopular Irish bands and solo artists 030818 GetOne FREE Green BeerWith entree purchase during St. Pats week long celebration.

For tour details, visit Mraz recently completed an extended Broadway debut run in the hit musical “Waitress.” Since getting his start 15 years ago performing in coffeehouses in his adopted city of San Diego, Mraz has brought his positive message and soulful, folk-pop sound to rapt audiences around the world through his recordings, vibrant live performances, and philanthropic efforts. Along the way, he has earned platinum or multi-platinum certi cations in more than 20 countries for his various releases, sold 48 million singles, made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, “I’m Yours,” racked up two Grammy Awards among six nominations, won a prestigious Hal David Songwriter Hall of Fame Award, performed in amphitheaters and arenas across the globe, and sold out such iconic venues as The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and London’s O2 Arena. Mraz released “Yes,” his most recent studio album, in 2014. The way Mraz sees it, everything in life boils down to people saying “yes.” “Yes inspires creativity,” he explained in a press release. “It’s what allows creativity to occur. Yes is love. Yes is what gave us life. We’re all here because two people said yes.” Saying yes has given this singer, songwriter, musician, photographer, lmmaker, and social activist a life beyond his wildest dreams. His rst-ever acoustic album and fth album overall, “Yes” was written and recorded with his friends in the L.A.-based folk-rock band Raining Jane. “The whole album is the product of yes,” he said. “Whether it’s Raining Jane saying yes to our annual songwriting retreats, which led to this collection of songs, or my label giving us the green light to let them become my next album. If anyone on our journey had said no, we wouldn’t be where we are. ‘Yes’ really is the connector.”Mraz to bring acoustic show to Mahaffey Photo courtesy of ATLANTIC RECORDSThe Mahaffey welcomes Jason Mraz March 17.The event will feature exhibition drone races, electrathon car races, makers market vendors, young makers village, workshops and demos, a deconstruction zone, gaming expo and more.

Entertainment 7B Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018CLEARWATER – Foreigner will perform with the Dave Eggar Orchestra Sunday, March 18, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $53.25. Call 727-791-7400 or visit This will be the band’s rst appearance at Ruth Eckerd Hall since 2014. For information and a complete list of tour dates, visit Foreigner is responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems such as “Juke Box Hero,” “Cold as Ice,” “Hot Blooded,” “Waiting for A Girl Like You,” “Feels Like the First Time,” “Urgent,” “Head Games,” “Say You Will,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Long, Long Way from Home” and the No. 1 hit “I Want to Know What Love Is.” The band continues to rock the charts more than 40 years into the game with massive airplay and continued Billboard Top 200 album success. With 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. In September 2017, Foreigner’s catalog sales were celebrated in Business Insider magazine as hitting the Top 40 among the best-selling music artists of all time. On April 27, Foreigner will release “Foreigner with the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus,” a live album, via earMUSIC. In May 2017, the band performed two sold-out shows in Lucerne, Switzerland, together with the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, conducted by Ernst van Tiel. The live album represents this yearlong collaboration between Foreigner founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones and Grammy nominated composing/arranging team Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer, exploring the deep symphonic potential of these classic and iconic songs. Eggar, Juilliard protg and cellist/pianist/composer; and Palmer, producer/writer/percussionist, have toured, performed and recorded with artists such as Paul Simon, James Taylor, Patti Smith, Coldplay and many more. The two sold-out shows in Switzerland have also inspired the current U.S. orchestral concert series which kicks off March 16 in St. Augustine. Together with The Dave Eggar Orchestra, Foreigner provides a once-ina-lifetime opportunity for U.S. fans to experience the band’s most popular hits in full orchestral sound. “I could never have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner 40 years ago that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later,” said Jones in a press release. “Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer’s orchestral arrangements have shown us a new symphonic dimension of our music, which I hope our fans will enjoy.” Foreigner members include Mick Jones (guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums).Foreigner, Dave Eggar Orchestra to play Ruth Eckerd Hall Photo by KARSTEN STAIGER/VANESSA MENKES COMMUNICATIONSForeigner plans to release “Foreigner with the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus,” capturing a live sold-out 2017 performance in Lucerne, Switzerland. That concert inspired the band’s current U.S. tour which includes a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall March 18.Ana Gasteyer to play Tampa’s Straz Center as part of 2018 Cabaret SeriesTAMPA – Stage and screen star Ana Gasteyer will perform Sunday, March 18, 7 p.m., in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $35.50. Call 813229-7827 or 800-955-1045. Visit Part of the 2018 Cabaret series sponsored in part by the Tampa Bay Times, the concert evokes the swagger of an era when a lady ruled a nightclub and an audience knew they were in for a good time. When Gasteyer steps up to the mic, the patter is real, the themes adult and the lyrics are timeless. The music swings like crazy. This six-season “Saturday Night Live” alum graduated from Studio 8H to Broadway, eventually landing in her ultimate element – the cabaret. A violin player from the age of 5, Gasteyer always had an ear for music and a knack for timing. Years later, after a formal education as a classically trained singer, she made the fateful discovery that she could get people laughing – and laugh they did. Eventually, Broadway came calling and Gasteyer spent several years belting out superstar vocals in shows like “Wicked” and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” But she felt most at home crooning and chirping with a big band in a nightclub, amidst laugher and the inviting clink of ice in a glass. “Let it Rip” and “Elegant Songs from a Handsome Woman,” her acclaimed shows, earned praise from audiences and critics alike. From songs like “One Mint Julep” and “Proper Cup of Coffee” to a surprisingly smooth rendition of Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” Gasteyer’s saucy selections tell stories with humor, heartbreak and just a little splash of soda. Her vibe recalls that of a time when entertainers truly entertained, an era when a broad could bring home the bacon, wing a set of sultry standards and still be a gracious hostess.

Entertainment 9B Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018TAMPA – Jobsite Theater will present the absurd, subversive family comedy “Hir” (pronounced “here”) by Taylor Mac, running March 9 through April 1, in the Shimberg Playhouse at the Straz Center, 1010 N. Macinnes Place, Tampa. Regularly priced tickets start at $29.50. For tickets and information, including performance times, call 813-2297827 or visit www. Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from Afghanistan to help take care of his ailing father, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mother. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, and with Isaac’s newly-out transgender sibling Max as her ally, she’s on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Mac’s sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it. The cast includes Robert Spence Gabriel, Ned Averill-Snell, Roxanne Fay and Salem Brophy. The show is directed by David M. Jenkins, who also provides sound, and features designs from Ryan Finzelber (set, lights) and Katrina Stevenson (costumes). Jobsite is also working with Massachusetts-based dramaturg Finn LeFevre to better tackle the play’s many complexities. Gabriel is a relative newcomer to the Tampa Bay area, having previously appeared as Crookfinger Jake in Jobsite’s “The Threepenny Opera.” This is Brophy’s professional theater debut, having recently graduated from Eckerd College under the tutelage of Gavin Hawk. Fay and Averill-Snell are no strangers to area stages: Fay has most recently been seen in Jobsite’s “The Tempest” and Averill-Snell in “Gloucester Blue.” “Hir,” the title, refers to a popular gender-free pronoun in the genderqueer community. “It’s not simply a reference to the character of Max, but a commentary on what it is all four of these characters are trying to do with masculinity,” said Jenkins in a press release. “Mac sets up a very traditional, very familiar-feeling kitchen-sink play – one that is positively hilarious -and then spins it on its axis, or maybe better stated tries to burn it all down.” Mac is a playwright, actor, singer-songwriter, performance artist, director, and producer considered to be one of the world’s leading theater artists. Mac has performed at Lincoln Center, Chicago’s Steppenworlf, the Sydney Opera House, the Spoleto Festival, and MOMA. Mac is a MacArthur Fellow, a Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama, and is the recipient of multiple awards such as the Kennedy Prize, the NY Drama Critics Circle Award, a Guggenheim, and two Obies. Jobsite is the resident theater company at the Shimberg Playhouse.

Pictured are, clockwise from top left, Roxanne Fay (Paige), Ned Averill-Snell (Arnold), Robert Spence Gabriel (Isaac), and Salem Brophy (Max). children’s TV show, “Just 4 Fun.” After their rst disastrous television appearance, the four Rovers headed off to “Americay,” landing in at San Francisco’s famous folk club “The Purple Onion” where they ended up headlining for an unprecedented 22 sold-out weeks. The folk clubs of California became the learning grounds for the young Rovers, and (through old-fashioned hard work and a wee bit of Irish luck) they were offered a recording contract with Decca Records. The success of “The First of The Irish Rovers,” their debut album, led to their second album, “The Unicorn.” At this time, the addition of Wilcil McDowell enhanced their sound. In 1968, the predecessor of the Juno Awards named The Irish Rovers Canada’s Folk Group of the Year. The following year, they received a Grammy nomination for Folk Performance of the Year. Through the 1970s and early ’80s, the Rovers brought their magic to television guest starring in several television programs, and then starring in three of their own television series: “The Irish Rovers Show” for the CBC, as well as “Party with the Rovers” and “The Rovers Comedy House.” They were also on Global Network in conjunction with Ulster Television in Ireland, which was syndicated around the world. In 2012, The Irish Rovers released “Drunken Sailor” on Rover Records. As well as featuring the title track, the album includes the single “Whores and Hounds” as well as a tribute to the great ship Titanic on its 100th anniversary. “The Irish Rovers Christmas,” a DVD and television special, was lmed in Canada on the ski slopes and in the streets and pubs of Banff National Park. It includes their live Christmas concert lmed at Chatham, Ontario’s historic Capitol Theatre, with musical guests from Ireland such as Morris Crum, Patrick Davey and Gerry O’Connor. With original members George Millar, and Wilcil McDowell, the band includes John Reynolds and Sean O’Driscoll who have been playing with the band for near 25 years. Will Millar left the group in 1994, and sadly Jimmy Ferguson passed away in 1997. In 2005 Joe Millar retired to the golf course, while his son, Ian, took up the family ranks. All members hail from Ireland. The Irish Rovers are still passionate about performing and will continue to tour and entertain their legions of fans. Like the Unicorn, the Rovers are legendary and magical, and a good time is guaranteed for all.

Since their whirlwind debut nine years ago on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” The Texas Tenors have accumulated a long list of accolades and awards – including three Emmy Awards. They have performed more than 1,000 concerts around the world, including a 24-city tour in the United Kingdom and Shanghai, China. They also have performed collaborations with some of the most prestigious symphonies in the United States. They were recently named the No. 10 Classical Artist in the world according to Billboard magazine.

They use breathtaking vocals, humor and a touch of cowboy charm to create an unforgettable live show. The Texas Tenors have also used their talent beyond concert halls.

Other notable performances have included NBA games, the PBR World Championships in Las Vegas and a variety of charity events. They are currently touring in support of “Rise,” their most recent release. “Rise,” released in September 2017, is a collection of timeless classics and original songs. The album features a 65-piece orchestra and full choir with original orchestrations. From John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” to “E lucevan le stelle” from Puccini’s Tosca, “Rise” showcases the wide-ranging talent of Fisher, Collins and Hagen, who pour their heart and soul into favorites such as “Desperado,” Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are” and a stirring rendition of “God Bless America.” The new album also features a duet with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers on the iconic “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.” Along with the title song, The Texas Tenors debut several more originals including the haunting ballad “I Don’t Want to Let You Go” and the electrifying, boot-scootin’ “Bootdaddy.” Collins, Hagen and Fisher are always ready to give back and promote awareness for organizations near and dear to their hearts including The Child Fund International, Homes for our Troops and The Mission Project. All proceeds from downloads and streams of the lead single, “Rise,” which is available now at and iTunes, benefited victims of Hurricane Harvey through the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. “The devastation of Hurricane Harvey has impacted many of our loved ones,” said Collins in a press release. “Our hearts go out to all those affected by this catastrophic disaster. We believe that no matter the crisis or strife, we will all come together to lift each other up and rise to help those in need. “Our title song ‘Rise’ is inspired by the strength and perseverance of Americans in times of great adversity. It is only tting that 100 percent of all proceeds of the song will go toward supporting the ongoing relief efforts.” The Texas Tenors proudly remain self-produced and managed with a commitment to quality, family entertainment for all ages. Whether it be stage, television, recording or multi-media projects, these “three friends with a dream” never forget their roots.

10B Outdoors Seminole Beacon, March 8, 2018Cooler weather slows snook bite downLast weekend’s cold front was a de nite indication of change. Soaring water temperatures have quickly been put back in their place from what we normally should see for this time of year. The reality is that things were happening much too quickly and at the pace we were on we would have been shing in mid-summer patterns in April. As it sits right now our bay water temperatures are around 65 degrees and as we brace for what appears to be a steady dose of cold fronts we might not see 70-degree water for at least a couple of weeks. The cooler water has slowed the snook bite down from a week ago. With the season opening the first of March, anglers should concentrate their efforts for a chance at good-sized sh around bridges and creek mouths during the warm part of the day. Cast slow sinking jerk-baits or weighted shad style lures. Trout are thriving in the cooler water. A lot of good sized trout have returned to the shallows during the mid-afternoon incoming tide. Target spoil island dropoffs and mullet schools as they work their way onto the ats. Live sardines are best, however soft plastic jigs in shrimp colors will catch plenty of trout. Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at To get a sh photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to edito or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772. Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein The great outdoorsLights out: Keep beaches dark for nesting turtlesAccording to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, keeping beaches dark at night and free of obstacles will help sea turtles during their nesting season. The nesting season in Florida began March 1 and will continue through the end of October. Bright artificial lighting can misdirect and disturb nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings, so beachgoers should avoid using ashlights or cellphones at night. Turning out lights or closing curtains and shades in buildings along the beach after dark will ensure nesting turtles are not disturbed as they come ashore and hatchlings will not become disoriented when they emerge from their nests. Clearing away boats and beach furniture at the end of the day and lling in holes in the sand are also important because turtles can become trapped in furniture and get trapped in holes on the beach. Florida’s beachfront residents and visitors taking these actions will help conserve the loggerhead, leatherback and green sea turtles that nest on the state’s coastlines. “Keeping Florida’s beaches dark and uncluttered at night can help protect sea turtles that return to nest on our beaches,” said Dr. Robbin Trindell in a press release. Trindell heads the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s sea turtle management program. “Many agency partners, such as nature centers, marine turtle permit holders and local governments, contribute greatly to sea turtle conservation. But caring beachgoers can also make a signi cant difference in helping nesting and hatchling sea turtles survive.” Exactly when sea turtle nesting season starts depends on where you are in Florida. While it begins in March on the Atlantic coast from Brevard through Broward counties, it starts later in the spring, in late April or May, along the northeast Atlantic, the Keys and Gulf coasts. Wherever you are, other ways to help sea turtles include properly disposing of fishing line to avoid entanglements, and reporting those turtles that are sick, injured, entangled or dead to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922 or #FWC or *FWC on a cellphone. Purchasing a Helping Sea Turtles Survive Florida license plate at contributes to sea turtle research, rescue and conservation efforts. People also can donate $5 and receive an FWC sea turtle decal. Visit for more information on Florida’s sea turtles, and click on “Research,” then “Nesting” for more data on sea turtle nesting.
