Gulf Coast Maker & Comic ConMore than 100 exhibits, presentations and performances are scheduled at the March 24 eventPhotos SUBMITTEDCosplay performers are always a popular part of the Gulf Coast Maker & Comic Con, said Chad Mairn, who runs the Innovation Lab at St. Petersburg College. This year’s event is set for Saturday, March 24. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE City Council took the first step towards banning kava, kratom, contraband bath salts and synthetic cannabinoids at its March 13 meeting. Councilors unanimously voted in favor of a bill banning these substances in the city upon its rst reading. A second reading of the bill will be held at a future council meeting. During the council's annual retreat Jan. 7, members discussed regulation of kratom and kava, and directed City Attorney Jay Daigneault to draft an ordinance to regulate or ban the substances. While researching the bill prior to drafting it, he determined a more comprehensive ordinance adding synthetic cannabinoid herbal incense and contraband bath salts to the list of substances to be banned was preferable. During the March 13 meeting, he said there is no research indicating "what the long-term and short-term effects [of kratom and kava] are." He added, "We just don't know." He said that though he can't say banning these substances "is a widespread trend in municipal government," some Florida municipalities, including the county of Sarasota, have. Councilor Chris Burke, who works for the Largo Police Department, requested that Daigneault speci cally add spice, a mix of herbs and manmade materials, to the bill since it wouldn't fall under the ordinance the way it is designed. He added that spice "causes the most trouble for law enforcement." Daigneault said he would add spice to the bill ahead of its second reading and vote by the council. In other action items, the council also: approved the revision of the procedures the council and city boards use in quasi-judicial proceedings. authorized City Manager Ann Toney-Deal submit applications for the annual Florida Municipal Achievement Awards. The city will nominate the recreation department's Digital Den for the City Spirit Award and the Community Emergency Response Team for the Florida Citizenship Award. Toney-Deal also announced that Willie Jewells Old School Bar-B-Q has been issued an interior build-out permit and will begin work on its space in the Seminole City Center. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE After taking 2017 off, the Seminole Community Library at St. Petersburg College's Seminole campus is bringing back its popular comic and maker convention Saturday, March 24, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library has partnered with the Gulf Coast Makers to revamp and rebrand the event as the Gulf Coast Maker & Comic Con, said Chad Mairn, who manages the Innovation Lab at the library. This free showcase celebrates the DIY inventive and artistic spirit by offering more than 100 exhibits, presentations and performances throughout the SPC campus. "It was kind of a risk to take a year off and a lot of people were disappointed, I think, but I think it's rebranded and maybe it will be better, I hope," he said. Though there's a focus on science, this year, there's something for everyone, Mairn added. "There's a lot to see and do," he said. Electrathon will offer electric car races, and there will be drone races as well. "That's going to be really cool," he said. Tesla will set up with their latest models of electric cars. There also will be heritage makers blacksmiths, weavers and woodworkers showing off their skills, make and take activities, pop-up concerts by students in SPC's music industry recording arts program, virtual reality demos, an inventors showcase and ash mobs. Gamers on the Edge will be back with their video game room. "Every year they've been here and they've done really great work," Mairn said. "That room has always been lled to capacity." Serenity Games also will host a board game room, which "was really popular last year," he said. Programming includes a science show hosted by Mike Davis, SPC's natural science chair based out of the Tarpon Springs campus. "He does these shows that has crazy smoke coming out of a petri dish or has a book catch on re," Mairn said. "He does these really engaging, fun science activities that kids can be really blown away by. It's really just fun science." The Really Live Literature Series will feature improv actors performing their versions of various book titles. Author Mark Muncy also will discuss Florida myths, monsters and legends featured in his book "Eerie Florida." Laura Spence, the Pinellas County Schools STEM coordinator, will lead a workshop on comic strip creation and STEM. Film and video game animation veteran Tony Mecca (XMen Days of Future Past, Rio 2, Furious 7, Snow White and the Huntsman) will answer questions about his career. Council moves to ban kava, kratomSeminole, Osceola students protest gun violence Photo by JOSH JONESStudents at Osceola Fundamental High School participated in a nationwide walkout in protest of gun violence at schools March 14. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Joining thousands of students across the country March 14, hundreds of teens attending Seminole High School and Osceola Fundamental High School participated in a nationwide walkout bringing awareness to gun violence in the schools. The walkout was spurred by the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida where 17 students were killed last month. In addition to protesting gun violence, many schools also honored the young lives lost that day with 17 minutes of silence. Both Seminole and Osceola high schools' administration supported the walkout, helping students to orchestrate the events. "We wanted to make sure they had an appropriate environment to go into for it," said Osceola Principal Michael Bohnet. Staff worked with students to organize the event, he added. "It was student led. We wanted to make sure it was the way they wanted it to be," he said. "We listened to them." Following 17 minutes of silence at 10 a.m. in the school's Rose Garden, an outdoor dining area adjacent to the cafeteria, 17 students each released one orange biodegradable balloon one of the OFHS school colors to represent those killed in the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland.

Caregivers of family members suffering from dementia are generally overworked and under-appreciated, on call 24-7 to confront a disease that often turns their loved ones into strangers. The conference, with the theme Finding Meaning in Caregiving, will feature an array of experts who will address the needs of those caregivers along with those of their affected family members. The conference is co-sponsored by the SPC Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, Maria's Adult Day Care Center, and AARP Florida. The event, which includes a buffet lunch, is free, but advance registration is required. To register, visit, or email, or call 727-393-7711. Along with advice for caring for themselves, the conference will offer caregivers information on medical advances into cures for dementia, on the legal aspects of dementia care, and on services covered by Medicare. During breaks, conference attendees will be able to visit informational tables of vendors offering services for family caregivers, volunteers working with older adults, and professionals in aging and related services. The conference will introduce two new featured speakers. Leading off will be Monica Stynchula, AARP Florida Executive Council member and chair of the Caregiver Accelerator. She will speak on "Building a Local Family Caregiving Ecosystem." The luncheon speaker will be Christine Sherrill, program coordinator for the Florida Department of Elder Affairs, who will highlight local resources under the DEA's Dementia Care and Cure Initiative. Returning speakers include Eileen Poiley, director of education at the Byrd Alzheimer's Institute at the University of South Florida, who will speak on "Coping with the Stress of Caregiving." Back also with positive insights on caregiving will be Linda Burhans, author and nationally recognized expert on caregiver advocacy, who will speak on "Connecting Caregivers with Reality." Another returning speaker from 2017, the Rev. Dr. Richard Deibert, medical director of Tidewell Hospice and an ordained minister, will address the physical and spiritual needs of caregivers. The use of medical marijuana to treat dementia patients, a subject not previously addressed by the conference, will be taken up by Jeffrey Leimbachrer, M.D. Some preliminary research indicates that the chemical THC in marijuana may have positive effects in Alzheimer's treatment. Leimbacher will explain that treatment in the context of Florida law, which allows use of medical marijuana for certain medical conditions under very restrictive rules. Other speakers will include David Bernstein, M.D.; Tracy Christner, community partnership specialist with Empath Health; D. "Rep" DeLoach III, estate planning, elder law and probate attorney at DeLoach & Hofstra; and Becky Herring, a local caregiver. Dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, is one of the world's biggest global public health challenges. Worldwide, at least 44 million people are living with dementia, and that number is expected to double by 2030 and more than triple by 2050 to 115 million. Much of the increase will be in developing countries like Western Europe and North America. Already 62 percent of people with dementia live in developing countries. There is no treatment available to slow or stop the brain damage caused by Alzheimer's disease, but several medications can temporarily help improve the symptoms of dementia for some people.Orchid Friends’ sale setSEMINOLE Orchid Friends will host a plant sale on Saturday, March 24, 9 a.m. to noon, at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, 10891 102nd Ave. N., Seminole.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018For Our Lives in St. Petersburg, spoke about the shooting and gun violence following the balloon release, Bohnet said. Carol Sterling, a librarian at Seminole, said she was surprised that the majority of students participated in the walkout. "Initially, we expected some kids to want to stay in the library," she said. Most students participated, she said, adding that several Seminole staff members had connections to Stoneman Douglas. A SHS guidance counselor graduated from the Parkland school, she said, while another teacher at Seminole had been taught by Stoneman Douglas athletic director Chris Hixon, who was killed protecting students during the shooting. SHS did the walkout a bit differently from other schools, she added. Students walked out at 10:17 and then had 17 minutes of silence at that time in memory of the Parkland victims. Students hung banners around the school, even on the roof of the building, she said. Student musicians performed "Taps" and "Amazing Grace." Horn players stood at various points around the school and played in unison, she said. Principal Dr. Thomas Brittain spoke over the loudspeaker about gun violence, as well. "He said some stuff about being supportive and hoping nothing like this ever happens again," Sterling said. Brittain did not respond to requests for comment for this article. Via email, Lisa Wolf, public information of cer for Pinellas County Schools, said that in preparation of the walkout at Seminole, staff involved student leaders in planning, "respected the right of students to participate or not," "designated an appropriate location for students choosing to participate and any other expectations necessary to ensure a safe and peaceful expression of support by students." She added that while students participating weren't disciplined, those participating in the protest could only participate "during non-instructional times and with principal's approval."

6A County Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018Economic Development helping businesses, Pinellas grow By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Economic Development Director Mike Meidel had lots of positive news to share with Pinellas County Commissioners on March 13. With what Meidel described as a "17-member dream team," and a host of partners, the county's Economic Development department performs a host of services designed to retain and expand existing businesses, assist new business start-ups and attract new high-wage employers that preferably have markets outside the county, so they bring new money into the local economy. Economic Development also helps businesses gain access to capital, and the department works to improve the business climate by supporting low taxes and regulations, and it ensures availability of a trained workforce. In addition, the department identifies available sites, which isn't the easiest thing to do in a built-out county, and promotes those sites for potential development. Now, thanks in part to the work of the "dream team," the county is rebounding nicely from the recession, especially in the area of employment. Meidel said during the recession, April 2006 to December 2009, the county lost 60,000 jobs. Since that time, Pinellas has regained all 60,000 and added 40,000 more. "So, we have 100,000 more people working in the county than we did in 2009," he said. "That's pretty exciting, especially to the people who are employed now but weren't back then." In the past year, Economic Development has worked to bring in 19 corporate relocations and expansions throughout the county. Meidel said his department doesn't just work in unincorporated Pinellas; instead, it ignores city limits to nd the best possible space for companies in need. Thanks to those relocations and expansions, 2,048 new jobs are expected in the county in the next three to ve years, and 1,812 jobs were retained. On top of that, more than $335.67 million in capital investment is projected, which translates into tax dollars. "That's an opportunity for us to fund every other program from public safety to health and human services," Meidel said. "And that's why we do what we do to create jobs to create that tax base to help bene t all the citizens and to create that new volume of money in the local economy." In addition, he said, for every $1 of county incentives, $161 comes back in direct and indirect wages, which equals a 161 percent return on investment. Meidel talked about some of the success stories and the work Economic Development did with Hillsborough County to try to entice Amazon to build its new headquarters in the area, which would have brought in 500,000 new jobs. He said while the local proposal didn't make Amazon's short list, the company did call with a thank you for the proposal. Commissioner Dave Eggers asked about plans for the next 10 years of Penny for Pinellas. Meidel said staff was looking toward the future and would use a consultant to nd the best opportunities for housing and employers to work together in a mixed-use environment. He said they would be looking at barriers to construction and how to structure the program to decide what types of incentives would be attractive to developers. Staff also will begin putting together the 12-member committee that will be vetting projects. Eggers questioned Meidel's comment on residential development, saying he thought the goal was to look for industrial land for office or warehouse use to create more jobs and expand businesses. He asked if the plan was to look for land to accommodate both. Meidel said the Penny money $16.5 million for 10 years is for housing and economic development, so the committee will be looking at projects for both uses. "It's going to be a complex process. Each site has special criteria to look at," he said. Staff had been directed to balance the need for housing and economic development, so the committee that will be vetting projects will have experts on both subjects, he said. "It's the best way to leverage the limited amount of money we have," he said. "It sounds like a lot, but when you have $500,000 an acre for most of the properties, it doesn't go very far." Commission Chair Ken Welch asked about ownership of Tropicana Field and the 85 acres around it. Technically, the stadium is owned by the county; however, Meidel said if the Tampa Bay Rays leave, the stadium goes back to the city of St. Petersburg, which also owns the land surrounding it. Meidel's staff is working closely with the city's staff on plans for redevelopment of the site whether the Rays stay or if the team moves to its chosen site in Ybor City. Welch pointed out that it "wasn't a done deal yet," and said the Rays had until January to talk to St. Petersburg about their plans. Meidel said even if the Rays stay, initial plans put together by the city to redevelop the surrounding land provides opportunities for office space, research and housing. "It will be a tremendous project and an even better project if the Rays stay because it would have an entertainment component too," Meidel said. "Needless to say, there's going to be a lot of community conversation about that 85 acres and how it gets repurposed and where the bene ts go," Welch said. Meidel also talked about a population study done by a new employee, who is doing research for Economic Development. The study shows that 350,000 will be moving to the county over the next several years while 325,000 will be moving out. He described it as a "churn" and said it explained why local Realtors stay so busy. Meidel said based on information from the IRS, people moving in are wealthier than those leaving the county. In addition, college students are returning and bringing their friends, and people in their 50s empty nesters are moving into the county. Commissioner Charlie Justice expressed concern that having wealthier people moving in would "tip the scale," toward having people at the high end and low end ( nancially) and no one in the middle. "There's no shortage of challenges," Welch said. "As much as we need the economic base, we need affordable housing." Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

8A Community Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018Old Salt Fishing Tournament gets 5-year contract, by citizens’ demand By WAYNE AYERS TBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH The city will likely host the Old Salt Fishing Tournament for at least the next ve years. The City Commission made that decision at a special meeting held March 16, unanimously agreeing with Commissioner Terry Lister "that a proposed veyear contract with the Old Salt Foundation be passed." Mayor Maggi Black opened the discussion by recommending only a six-month contract that would allow the upcoming King of the Beach Tournament on April 26-28 to be held. She said the city needs to get more data, then do an evaluation "and come to a better conclusion on how long the contract should be and what should be in it. Then we can look at a multiple year contract." At that time, Commissioner Nancy Oakley said she agreed with Black. But the majority of a standing-room-only crowd of residents and business owners disagreed. A number of them spoke passionately about the tournament's value to the city, and urged approval for at least a ve-year contract. Commissioner Terry Lister, who earlier learned of his narrow defeat for re-election, said he strongly wanted a new contract that would keep the Old Salt Tournament in Madeira Beach "for ve, 10, or even 20 years." City Manager Jonathan Evans said he had worked with of cials of the Old Salt Foundation to come up with a contract "that would ensure the Tournament stays in Madeira Beach." "This (contract) will solidify Madeira Beach as the home location of the shing tournament," Evans said. "We understand its economic value and the tourism that it generates to the region." Under the terms of the agreement, the Old Salt Foundation agrees to pay all the actual costs associated with the tournament, including re, EMT, sanitation, etc. Evans said. "We will track the hours of who was actually out there, and bill appropriately," he said. He also said if the Foundation asks for any additional support during the event "we will track that and make sure the city does not incur any additional costs." In return, the city agrees to waive the recreation fees normally charged, which would amount to $9,000. The contract is cancellable by either the city or the Foundation by giving a year's notice. The foundation also will put money in escrow "to ensure the elds are protected and returned to the pristine condition in which they were before the event," Evans said. Evans spoke of the many bene ts the tournament brings to the city. "It's a great marketing tool to use in future promotions of the city," he said. The city gains much for hosting the Old Salt Fishing Tournament, Evans said, including opportunities to join in cross promotion and cross branding and be involved with their award-winning presentations. "There are many marketing and press opportunities," Evans said. Citizens and business owners spoke, strongly urging the city to approve the Old Salts contract for at least another ve years. Sue Patzschke said the tournament gives the city "hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising this is the cheapest advertising you could ever get." "The King of the Beach Tournament is well known everywhere," said Robert Preston. "It's unreal what they can do for the city. Madeira Beach is a shing village. The citizens want this tournament, and the ( ve-year) contract, cancellable with a year's notice." Missy Hahn, president of the Treasure Island and Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce, said the economic impact of the tournament is "so much." "If they leave the area, it will hurt all our businesses," she said. Incoming Commissioner Deby Weinstein said she agreed. The Old Salt Tournament has been in the city for a long time "and everybody wants to keep it here." But she also said the Foundation has not provided a pro t and loss statement for a number of years. "It is extremely critical that we know where the money they give to charities goes, and how much they gave, and to make sure the monies are paid," Weinstein said. Old Salt Foundation President Tom Verdensky said the shing tournament "is a win-win situation for the entire city." The event takes about 18 months to put together, he said, adding "a six-month contract would really tie our hands." After the public comment, Lister was the rst to speak from the dais, praising the proposed ve-year contract. "This is a well-written contract, and it's written by this man, Jonathan Evans, who is the new city manager. He brought this to us in all confidence knowing that this is the best deal for the city of Madeira Beach. It doesn't get any better than this," he said. Lister made the motion, seconded by Commissioner Nancy Hodges, that "the proposed ve-year contract be passed." I just want to say, I certainly want the Old Salts to stay. I was trying to make a compromise because I know other people feel differently. And if that's not a good compromise, it's not a good compromise," Black said. When the roll was called, the commission unanimously voted approval, giving Lister one last victory before leaving the commission in April.Weinstein wins commission seatA recount of the votes in the race between incumbent Terry Lister and Deby Weinstein for the District 1 commission seat showed Weinstein the winner by ve votes, 600-595. She had been ahead by four votes at the end of the nal count on election night, making the race too close to call. The recount at the Board of Elections on the Friday after the election showed Weinstein gained one vote, and she was declared the winner. The election results were announced at a special meeting of the Board of Commissioners on March 16, but Weinstein was not sworn in. That will happen at the next regular commission meeting on April 10. In the other contested seat, District 2 Commissioner Nancy Hodges was re-elected by a margin of more than 100 votes, 647-540 (55 percent of the vote), over opponent Eric Breslin.Beach Art Center offers art, poetryINDIAN ROCKS BEACH The exhibit "April Medley" will open with a reception Friday, March 23, 6-8 p.m., at the Beach Art Center, 1515 Bay Palm Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach.

Sand placement will begin on Treasure Island beaches, and then move north to Sand Key at North Redington Beach and continue along the beaches to Clearwater. A brief presentation will be followed by a question and answer period. Contractors will renourish critically eroded shoreline using dredge material from Egmont Shoals as well as Johns Pass. The federal project, led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in partnership with Pinellas County and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, is cost-shared between the federal government, paying 75 percent, with the remaining 25 percent split between the county and the state. The Sand Key project will place 1.4 million cubic yards of sand along the shoreline from Clearwater Beach to North Redington Beach. The Treasure Island project will place 250,000 cubic yards of sand along the shoreline from Sunshine Beach to Sunset Beach. Beach nourishment bene ts property owners and the public by providing increased storm protection, recreational opportunities and restoration of critical habitat for shorebird and marine turtle nesting. The Pinellas County Shore Protection Project totals 21.8 miles of shoreline. Three constructed and authorized segments are actively maintained by the federal government in a cost share agreement with Pinellas County. These segments include Sand Key, Treasure Island and Long Key (currently not funded). The federal government has invested nearly $120 million to date in restorative beach erosion control measures, including beach renourishment and the construction of groins.

10A Police Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018 Police beatSheriff’s lieutenant red after DUI arrestLARGO A 19-year veteran of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce lost her job March 18 after she was arrested for DUI in Largo. Deputies assigned to the Sheriff's DUI unit arrested Lt. Christi Ruhtz, 41, about 1:49 a.m. in the area of 130th Avenue and Wild Acres Road in Largo. She was booked into the county jail about 5:37 a.m. and released on her own recognizance at 10:50 a.m. Bail was set at $500. Deputies responded to a concerned citizen calling about a disturbance due to a vehicle honking its horn in a neighborhood. When deputies arrived, they saw a vehicle driving in reverse while its horn was honking. Ruhtz was the only person in the vehicle. Deputies say Ruhtz showing signs of impairment by having bloodshot, glassy, and watery eyes and a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her mouth. Ruhtz agreed to perform field sobriety tests, but performed poorly. Deputies say that Ruhtz refused to submit a breath sample for the criminal investigation; however, she was required to submit to an administrative breath sample due to her employment with the Sheriff's Of ce. Her breath sample showed she had a blood alcohol concentration of .14/.13. Florida's drunk driving laws prohibit driving any type of vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or above. Ruhtz was hired by the Sheriff's Of ce Dec. 21, 1998. She worked as a lieutenant in the Public Records Processing Unit. Ruhtz's employment was immediately terminated following the arrest, which is consistent with Sheriff's Of ce policy.PCSO releases results of DUI Wolf Pack operationPinellas County Sheriff's deputies and other local law enforcement of cers conducted a countywide DUI Wolf Pack from 7 p.m. March 17, through 5 a.m. March 18.

Bruce William Joseph was released from the Pinellas County Jail on surety bond the same day. His bail was set at $50,300. According to arrest affidavits, Joseph had a "romantic relationship" with a female, who had been a student at his wife's place of employment. The relationship began after she graduated high school. Police say he "continually" traveled to meet the victim at her college in North Carolina until the end of 2017 when the victim ended the relationship. According to police, during the relationship, the victim sent nude pictures of herself to Joseph. Joseph is accused of creating numerous ctitious social media sites in the victim's name and uploading pictures of her. He then used the sites to make contact with other men while pretending to be the victim. Police say Joseph gave directions to the victim's home and on two occasions, men showed up at her house expecting to have sex with her. The victim told police that she became "extremely afraid to leave her house and fears for her safety," according to the af davit. Police say she also told them she has become "emotionally distressed" due to the harassment. Police say Joseph was the only one who had the nude photos of the victim. They also say he sent the photos to numerous friends and family of the victim through fake social media site accounts. An IP address was obtained from one of the phone numbers and a fake snapchat account that was registered to the victim's home. Joseph's activities were discovered during a two-month investigation by Hubbard Investigations, a Clearwater-based business. Hubbard was contacted by the victim's mother. Hubbard's investigators say Joseph used more than 35 different phone numbers, numerous aliases, email addresses and screen names to pretend to be the victim. – Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER Christi Ruhtz Bruce William Joseph Tile Roof Repair Specialists  727.577.2468 Roof Leaks?

14A Health & Fitness Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018 Health newsMissing multiple natural teeth? Or perhaps several teeth that are damaged beyond repair? Not only can absent teeth be harmful to your appearance, the loss also can contribute to health issues by not allowing you to properly chew food. Whether you have lost teeth due to periodontal gum disease, age, decay or injury, dentures could help you get your smile back. Dentures are custom-made removable appliances that replace one's natural teeth. Dentures can aid in speaking and eating and ll out the sagging facial muscles after tooth loss that can contribute to looking older. Though it may take weeks or months to become comfortable with wearing dentures, the overall bene ts are worth it. There are a few types of dentures: Conventional This denture is fabricated several months after the remaining teeth have been extracted and healing of tissue has taken place; therefore, you will go without teeth for a period of time. Immediate Prior to having teeth removed, the dentist constructs your custom denture. This allows the denture to be delivered the same day as remaining teeth are taken out and you are never without all your teeth. However, after healing takes place you will most likely need to reline your denture. Overdenture This option utilizes either some of your natural teeth or implants to help stabilize the denture. If some teeth are able to be preserved or dental implants placed, the denture is fabricated to go over these supporting structures, which is very helpful to hold the denture steady. It is important to take proper care of your dentures and gums. Even if you wear full dentures, you must still brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth to eliminate plaque buildup. It is crucial to store your dentures in a moist environment/water when they are not in your mouth to prevent damage. Brushing the dentures with a non-abrasive cleaner daily is also recommended. At least once a year, see your dentist to check your tissue, the t and professionally clean your dentures. This routine will help prevent issues and prolong the life of your smile! Dr. Edward Busch’s dental practice is at 10170 Seminole Blvd.Bringing smiles back to life Largo Medical Center using new ICM with Smartphone technology LARGO Largo Medical Center is one of the rst hospitals in the area to use the new Con rm Rx Insertable Cardiac Monitor, the first and only smartphone compatible ICM designed to help physicians remotely identify cardiac arrhythmias. The rst procedure at the hospital was in late January. "This rst-of-its-kind technology assists physicians in quickly identifying some of the most dif cult forms of heart arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation," said Dr. Malay Gandhi in a press release. Gandhi is a cardiac electrophysiologist at Largo Medical Center. "In turn, the information I receive assists me in creating a personalized treatment plan for each patient." The ICM monitors a patient's heart rhythm and proactively transmits information via Bluetooth wireless technology to the device's mobile app which is what gives the physician remote access to a patient's condition. Patients can also track their own symptoms proactively through the app without having to contact their doctor. Once implanted, just under the skin in the chest during a quick, minimallyinvasive outpatient procedure, the ICM can begin to monitor and detect a wide range of heart rhythms. "It's specialized cardiovascular services like this one that we offer that helps get our patients on the road to recovery quicker than ever before," said Anthony Degina, CEO at Largo Medical Center. An arrhythmia is an abnormal heart rhythm that develops when disease or injury disrupts the heart's electrical signals, causing the heart to beat erratically. As the heart begins to beat too fast or too slow, changes in blood ow can expose patients to symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath or fainting. Cardiac electrophysiologists Dr. Ronald Walsh and Dr. Shalin Shah also perform this procedure at Largo Medical Center.Walmart to host blood driveBlood drives will take place Monday, March 26, 2 to 7:30 p.m., at select Tampa Bay area Walmart locations.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018 LETTERS We are a oat on a sea of suggestions about gun control. It's an important issue, one on which citizens should feel free to talk about regardless of our quali cations and experiences. Here are some of my own thoughts. I come from a gun-owning family. My father kept a rifle and a shotgun in the hall closet. Once every ve years or so he'd say to me and my brother, "Let's go rabbit hunting." So, we'd load up and go nd some woods. For half an hour we'd tramp through thickets and underbrush, trying not to scare off rabbits, squirrels and other wildlife. We usually failed to achieve that goal, although one time Dad spied a squirrel and shot at it, with no result except to scare the tar out of my brother and me. But I think it made Dad feel justi ed in owning a rearm. When I was 12 I bought a Red Ryder BB gun. I used it for target practice, not for hunting any live creature. Except for one day I took aim at a robin. I had no idea that I would kill it. But I did. I picked up the dead bird and let it rest in my hand. It was soft and beautiful, and had meant no harm to me. Years passed before I pulled another trigger. That day occurred when I was 17 and lying on my belly in a shooting range of the U.S. Navy boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois. For reasons never made clear, my entire recruit company was required to qualify at target-shooting with ri es. The instructors were U.S. Marines, young, tough, impatient and only a few years removed from aiming at live Japanese targets on Iwo Jima, Tarawa and other Paci c island resorts. I did not do well at hitting the bull's eye. Halfway through the drill, the Marine observer tapped me on the shoulder, said "Give me your !!#@! weapon. I'll qualify for you." Which he did. I was embarrassed but grateful. Thus ended my career as a sharp-shooter, hunter or gun-lover.Even so, I have pronounced opinions about rearms. I sometimes think their use should be restricted to persons aged 70 and older. The record shows that few oldsters are armed terrorists. Journalists should be allowed to carry guns to defend themselves against contentious readers. Gun-buyers should be required to recite the Second Amendment in at least three languages, and then write 500word essays on exactly what the phrase "well regulated Militia" means to them. The same test should apply to all members of the NRA. (Don't hold your breath until any of these suggestions become law.)Are cars, vans and pickup trucks driven at 60 mph into a crowd any less lethal than an assault ri e red from a hotel room into a rock concert crowd below? Who is more dangerous: a person who screams "Fire!" in the middle of a crowded movie hall, or a psychotic who sets a 3 a.m. re in the basement of a 10-story apartment house? My point: rearms are only one class of offensive weapons available to wrong-doers in America. The Pilgrims came to our land in 1620 seeking religious freedom. They had guns. They shot deer and other game to keep from starving. In the 398 years since then guns have been used for hundreds of reasons, good and bad, reasonable and wicked. In April 1775 a gathering of colonial farmers in Concord and Lexington repelled British soldiers sent from Boston to seize weapons and supplies. It can be said that without their muskets the Minutemen would have been powerless, and the American Revolution might never have started. Our Second Amendment was based on a simple, powerful idea: our citizenry must never again be subject to domination by an evil, unwanted force, either foreign or domestic. That idea has helped to sustain us through many trials. But today that Amendment is again threatened, not so much by persons who would repeal it, but by fanatic, fearful gun-worshippers who would gladly use the Second Amendment to defeat and silence their opponents. I believe these zealots are a minority of our country's gun owners. But they are rich, powerful, dedicated and entrenched. They are to be feared as much or perhaps even more than the twisted, armed, would-be assassins who lie in wait to assault innocents throughout our land. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ meets his match in DanielsWASHINGTON During a GOP debate in the 2016 election, Donald Trump repeated a frequent boast. "I don't settle cases. I don't do it because that's why I don't get sued very often, because I don't settle, unlike a lot of other people," he declared. Then, in the month leading up to the election, Trump, who had been accused by several women of sexual misconduct, also vowed to sue "all of these liars" as soon as the election was over. Stormy Daniels, a porn actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has put a lie to all that. In October 2016, days before the presidential election, Trump's longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about what her present attorney describes as "an intimate relationship" with Trump that began in the summer of 2006 and continued into the next year. Cohen says that he paid the money himself. Daniels has offered to pay back the $130,000 so that she can break the nondisclosure agreement. The CBS news program "60 Minutes" is set to air an interview with her on March 25. On Friday, her attorney, Michael Avenatti, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that Daniels had been threatened physically to keep her from talking, though he would not say by whom. Here is a man who knows how to tease a story. Or as Republican strategist and CNN contributor Alice Stewart put it, he knows how "to keep on the re and potentially keep it the eternal ame." By carefully parsing his words and doling out twists in the story, "he's almost trying to out-Trump Trump." There is some justice in Trump finding himself on the receiving end of Daniels' and Avenatti's determination to og this story for all it is worth presumably appreciably more than six gures. Daniels has put conservatives in a quandary. During the 2016 election, more than 10 women accused the GOP nominee of unwanted kissing and groping. But many of their stories were years, even decades, old. That is, they predated Trump's engagement in electoral politics. Besides, Trump denied his accusers' claims. Most of the accusers came forward just before the election, which made some supporters suspect the timing. In the United States, the burden is on the accuser, not the accused. Trump's base gave him a pass. In January, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told Politico that evangelicals were willing to give Trump a "mulligan" on the harassment accusations. Last week, Perkins told Christian Broadcasting Network News that his viewpoint had not changed. "To date, what has the president done?" Perkins said. "(Trump) has not engaged, to our knowledge, and I think we would know, in any of the behavior that he did in the past, prior to the election. What he has done is he's actually followed through on political promises." Problem: As Stewart put it, if Trump paid Daniels "$130,000 12 years ago for her services, that's between him and Melania. If he paid her $130,000 a month before the election, then we've got an issue." Some campaign ethicists argue that the $130,000 hush payment would constitute a violation of the $5,400 cap on political campaign donations per election cycle. But in 2012, a federal jury refused to convict former Sen. John Edwards of campaign- nance fraud after a big donor paid to cover up an affair Edwards had with a campaign videographer who gave birth to their child. At the time, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Melanie Sloan argued it was wrong to consider the payments to conceal Edwards' mistress to be campaign contributions. But even if the Cohen payments to the porn actress were not illegal campaign contributions, the documents reveal how reckless Trump's behavior and attitude are. The list of materials Daniels agreed to hand over still images, text messages prompt the reader to imagine the worst. Ever the entrepreneur, Daniels is soliciting contributions to her legal fund. "She's trying to raise money to pay for her legal fees," late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel mugged, adding, "So now you can give money to a porn star just like the president of the United States." So, Americans know: The president had a relationship with a porn actress, and his lawyer paid her off to cover it up because, like President Bill Clinton before him, Trump would not admit that he did what he did. "In my view, the president would do himself a favor and just come clean, tear off the Band-Aid and move on," Stewart opined. That is, Trump should man up. Like that's going to happen.

And without a kiss! Duke Energy CEO Lynn Good made $21.4 million last year, an increase of 55 percent from the year before and her highest ever as chief executive, according to the company's latest proxy ling. In a statement, Duke said it maintains competitive, market-based compensation for all of its jobs, including the CEO, to ensure that it attracts and keeps top talent. If CEOs expect to be paid over $20 million per year, what chance does the average person have? It's bad enough that the executives and shareholders are reaping huge pro ts, but we are expected to pick up the cost of Duke doing business. Remember the defunct nuclear facility in Crystal River that went of ine because of a botched DIY repair by Progress Energy? This resulted in a $1.7 billion bill for consumers. And let's not forget Hurricane Irma! The storm knocked out electricity to about 78 percent of Pinellas, more total customers than anywhere else in Duke's service area. Many of Duke's customers, who already pay some of the highest rates in the state, were shocked by the number of outages and how long it took in some areas for power to come back on. State lings show that the company cut its tree-trimming budget in the area by more than $2 million last year, from $9.9 million to $7.4 million. Would an extra $2 million for tree trimming have made a signi cant difference? Could CEO Lynn Good live with $2 million dollars less per year? She'd still have $19.4 million. And if that's not enough, Duke won approval to raise prices on about half its North Carolina customers by 6 percent, and wants to increase rates on the rest of its largest markets by 10 percent. Where does the greed end?Lil CromerBelleairMayor thanks votersEditor: I want to thank the 1,003 voters in Belleair who cast their ballots to reelect me as your mayor.

It has also reduced adult smoking from 21 percent in 2006 to less than 16 percent in 2015. Despite these gains, the Constitution Revision Commission aims to undercut Tobacco Free Florida with Proposal 94. The proposal seeks to remove language in our state's constitution protecting the ability of Tobacco Free Florida to counteract the mammoth marketing efforts of Big Tobacco. Although Proposal 94 would undoubtedly bene t the tobacco industry, its biggest impact would be on Florida's most impressionable residents ... our kids. By giving Big Tobacco unfettered access to target our kids without effective opposition, Proposal 94 will put more money into the pockets of Big Tobacco and put our children one step closer to the grave.

18A Outdoors Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018Fishing conditions expected to improve with warmer weatherMarch winds and below average temperatures continue to be the headline on the shing scene. Water temperatures have crawled back up to near 70 degrees. Not quite warm enough for consistent shing just yet. However, with a big warm up coming this weekend we should see an improvement by next week. Inshore, trout and red sh are your best bet as snook have been inactive for the most part. Trout fishing has been good in Tampa Bay. Patchy grass bottom mixed with sand holes in 3to 5-feet of water will hold plenty of medium sized trout. Fish live shrimp under a oat or cast soft plastics in shrimp colors for good action. The larger trout have been hanging around mullet schools along the shallow ats. Try casting weedless jerk baits or if you can find live bait, small pinfish and or sardines have been working very well. Red sh also can be found hanging with the mullet schools. The big reds have been skittish for the most part so anglers will do best to cast out a few pin sh well away from the boat and wait for them to swim by and pick one up. Offshore shing has been very tough with all the wind we've had. Those that have been able to get out have found red grouper holding in 80 feet of water and the action has been good with both live pinfish and or frozen sardines for bait.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein Garden sproutsIf you have bats roosting in your attic, eaves or chimney spaces, now is the time to give them an eviction notice. Bat maternity season begins April 15 and runs through Aug. 15. Exclusions of bat colonies must be completed before the season starts. "During bat maternity season, bats gather to give birth and raise their young," said Terry Doonan, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist and mammal conservation coordinator. "The season lasts until the young bats can y and feed themselves. In Florida, this occurs from mid-April through mid-August for most bat species." Bat exclusions are illegal during this maternity season to prevent young bats that cannot yet y from being trapped inside structures and dying. Florida is home to 13 resident bat species, including threatened species such as the Florida bonneted bat. Some bat species roost in arti cial structures, including buildings and houses. Although it is illegal to harm or kill bats in Florida, guidelines have been developed allowing for the legal exclusion of bats outside of the maternity season. Exclusion guidelines on how to remove bats from buildings can be found at Materials and methods to exclude bats can affect the success of that process. For more information on how to conduct a bat exclusion, watch this YouTube video: How to Get Bats Out of a Building. Further details on how to conduct a legal bat exclusion can be found at Bat Conservation International. Bats are bene cial to people and are an important part of the ecosystem. The state's native bats help keep insect populations under control, with the average bat eating hundreds of insects a night. In addition to the bene t of keeping mosquitoes and other insects at bay for residents enjoying the outdoors, the value of insect suppression by bats to U.S. agriculture has been estimated to be in the billions of dollars. There are several ways that Florida residents and visitors can help bats: Preserve natural roost sites, including trees with cavities and peeling bark. Dead fronds left on palms can also provide roosting spots for bats. Put up a bat house. Report unusual bat behavior to: BatMortality. Bats can carry rabies. Although infected bats may not become aggressive, like any other wild animal, they can bite to defend themselves if handled. Don't touch or go near any wild animal, especially one that's not acting normally. For more information about rabies, visit the Florida Department of Health website at For more information on Florida's bats, go to eviction time about upFlorida West Coast Bromeliad Society to meetPINELLAS PARK The Florida West Coast Bromeliad Society will meet Tuesday, April 3, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., at Good Samaritan Church, 6085 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park.

20A Health & Fitness Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersPinellas County is a little bit healthier, according to the ninth annual County Health Rankings released March 14 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. The county's overall health rank is 26 this year compared to 28 in 2017. St. Johns County ranked No. 1, as the healthiest in the state, and Union County ranked 67, as the least healthy. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County put out a press release saying it "recognizes the value in measuring health outcomes and pointed out that the results of the County Health Rankings highlights many community factors that in uence health." "Fortunately, Pinellas County is rich in partnerships and residents who are committed to developing innovative ways to improve the health of our communities," said Dr. Ulyee Choe, director of DOH-Pinellas. "Thanks to these unique collaborations, we've made great strides in Pinellas; however, we need to continue to address areas of concern including health behaviors and the socioeconomic factors that have a profound effect on the health of our residents." Pinellas' ranking for health behaviors climbed to 23 compared to 26 in 2017. Behaviors include adult smoking, which was 17 percent both years; adult obesity, which was 26 percent in 2017 and 2018; and physical inactivity, at 22 percent in 2017 and 23 percent in 2018. Access to exercise opportunities was 100 percent in 2017 but only 96 percent this year. Twenty-one percent of Pinellas County residents were drinking in excess in 2018 compared to 20 percent last year; however, alcohol-impaired driving deaths dropped 1 percent from 29 percent in 2017 to 28 percent. The county's percentage is higher than the state average at 26 percent. Some of the social and economic factors measured include high school graduation rate. Pinellas' graduation rate was 78 percent both years. Sixty-four percent of residents had some college in 2017 and 65 percent this year. Only 4.4 percent were reportedly unemployed in 2018 compared to 4.9 percent last year. There was a slight improvement in the number of children living in poverty 20 percent in 2018 and 21 percent in 2017. The state average this year was 21 percent and the national rate was 20 percent. Forty-one percent of children live in single-parent households, a slight improvement over last year with 42 percent. The state average is 38 percent. Physical environment includes severe housing problems in which Pinellas had 19 percent in 2018 and 20 percent in 2017. Eighty percent of county residents drove alone to work both years and about a third have a long commute 33 percent in 2018 and 32 percent in 2017. Clinical care measures included the number of uninsured. Pinellas had 18 percent uninsured in 2017 and only 14 percent this year. The state average is 16 percent. Another bright spot in the information from the County Health Rankings report was the length of life enjoyed by residents of Pinellas. In 2017, the county ranked 29 for length of life and, in 2018, the measure had improved to a ranking of 23. DOH-Pinellas points out that while the rankings are a "snapshot of the health of counties across the country," they also "emphasize that health in not a singular effort but a combined work in progress across all community partners." The local health department works with governments, nonpro t organizations, health care facilities, business groups, schools, faith-based groups and others. The county's Community Health Improvement Plan includes ways to improve health and Pinellas DOH tracks progress of the plan's implementation. Reducing infant mortality and increasing behaviors that improve chronic disease health outcomes are two of the plan's initiatives.

The exhibitions opened March 9 and will continue through May 6 at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin.

As curator at DFAC, Bergmann has a deep involvement with the show. “Square footage wise this is certainly the biggest show we have. To see the breadth of talent represented in this exhibition is truly inspiring.” That breadth of talent challenged this year’s judge, John Seals, who was charged with choosing the most exceptional work from both the student and member exhibits. Seals’ choices, which were awarded at the opening reception March 9, were as follows: #SMF | DFAC Members Exhibition  Best of Show – Jan Richardson, “Ancient Vessel II,” sodared stoneware  First Place – Christina Bertos, “Love,” carved alabaster  Second Place – Nathan Beard, “Exit Music #58,” acrylic on panel  Third Place – Anne Emslie, “Hanging Out on the Serengeti,” wall quilt Member Merit Awards  Kristen Santucci, “Sheree,” oil  Donna Linder, “Lygia,” watercolor CLEARWATER – The soulful Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes will perform Thursday, March 29, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $40. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. For Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, “comfortable” has never been a word associated with their brand of raucous, roots-tinged rock and bluesy reverie. The Jukes have more than 30 albums on their rsum, thousands of acclaimed live performances across the globe and a vibrant legacy of classic songs that have become “hits” to their large and famously-dedicated fan base. “With the Jukes, you’re out there every night leading this great rock ’n’ roll circus, giving it everything you’ve got,” said Southside Johnny Lyon in a press release promoting the show. The iconic Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes released “Soultime!” on Leroy Records in 2015. Their most recent studio release, “Soultime!” celebrates the transformative power of ’70s soul music and represents a return to – as Southside sings – “just letting the music take us away.” This release encapsulates everything that fans cherish about Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes including patterns of horns and rhythm plus each song painted with catchy choruses, top-notch string arrangements and gospel-charged vocals. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes first achieved prominence in the mid-1970s emerging from the same New Jersey Shore music scene as now legendary contemporary and pal Bruce Springsteen. Southside’s first three albums – “I Don’t Want to Go Home,” “This Time It’s for Real” and “Hearts of Stone” – were produced by Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band. The albums featured songs written by Van Zandt and Springsteen. “I Don’t Want to Go Home” became Southside’s signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and soul-searching lyrics. Rolling Stone magazine voted “Hearts of Stone” among the top 100 albums of the 1970s and 1980s. With a decades-long successful career, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes continue to deliver their soul-searing brand of raucous blues and R&B, with material mined from their many albums, featuring hits such as “I Don’t Want to Go Home,” “Love on the Wrong Side Of Town,” “The Fever,” “This Time It’s For Real,” “Talk to Me” and their definitive fun-time cover of “We’re Having A Party.” The Jukes’ legendary high-energy live performances always satisfy with their classic blend of Stax-influenced R&B and gritty, Stonesy rock ’n’ roll.

I’ve been making this type of art for three years.” According to Brown, each piece is designed, drawn and then cut out of metal according to her customers’ requests. “I create everything myself with my own hands out of car steel or aluminum, and in any color imaginable,” she explains. “The art I create is and has always been a passion of mine. I am in my third year at St. Petersburg College.” For information, visit Abcollisioncreations. com.

Loudon Wainwright III to perform at Murray Theatre4B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, March 22, 2018Williams to play State TheatreST. PETERSBURG – Genre-hopping multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Keller Williams will bring his signature solo looping show to the Tampa Bay area for one show Friday, March 30, 8 p.m., at State Theatre, 687 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $21.50. Call 727-895-3045 or visit Williams has built a reputation for his dynamic and unpredictable solo performances, where he creates samples on the y using a special looping effect live on stage, playing both original songs and select covers. Nothing is pre-recorded and no two shows are alike, making for a completely unique experience of sonically infused alt-folk and groovy electronica. With a career spanning more than 20 years, and just as many releases, the ever-evolving performer refuses to settle for the status quo. Williams’ unmatched creativity and ability to collaborate with a variety of artists have established a cult-like following among fans. He’s toured with bands like the String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Rhythm Devils and Umphrey’s McGee, as well as his various side projects. Williams recently announced via Billboard a new Tom Petty-inspired live project titled “Keller Williams’ PettyGrass,” which nds him performing select covers in a rollicking bluegrass style. In early 2017, Williams released “Sync,” the debut studio album from his acoustic dance project KWahtro. KWahtro infuses reggae, folk, jazz, afrobeat and dance rhythms into new, and innovative arrangements. Led by Williams on guitar and vocals, the collective includes bassist Danton Boller, guitarist and longtime Williams’ collaborator Gibb Droll and drummer Rodney Holmes. In addition to “Sync,” Williams also released “Raw,” a 10-song collection of solo acoustic material that simply showcases the artist and his instrument. These straightforward performances are not enhanced by any of his signature looping. Williams released “Freek,” his rst album, in 1994. He has since given each of his albums a single syllable title: “Buzz,” “Breathe,” “Loop,” “Laugh,” “Home,” “Dance,” “Stage,” “Grass,” “Dream,” “Twelve,” “Live” “Odd,” “Thief,” “Kids,” “Bass,” “Pick,” “Funk,” “Vape,” “Sync” and “Raw.” Each title serves as a concise summation of the concept guiding each project. For example, “Grass” is a bluegrass recording cut with the husband-wife duo The Keels. “Stage” is a live album and “Dream” is the realization of Williams’ wish to collaborate with some of his musical heroes. Each album showcases Williams’ comprehensive and diverse musical endeavors. His collaborative and solo albums reflect his pursuit to create music that sounds like nothing else. Unbeholden to conventionalism, he seamlessly crosses genre boundaries. The end product is astounding and novel music that encompasses rock, jazz, funk and bluegrass, and always keeps the audience on their feet. Photo by C. TAYLOR CROTHERS/ALL EYES MEDIAKeller Williams performs March 30 at State Theatre in St. Petersburg. Image courtesy of ALL EYES MEDIA“Sync,” released in 2017, is the debut studio album from Keller Williams’ acoustic dance project KWahtro. CLEARWATER – Grammy-Award winning folk-singer/songwriter Loudon Wainwright III will return to the all-new Murray Theatre for a performance Thursday, March 29, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $39.50. Call 727791-7400 or visit Wainwright came to fame when his novelty song “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright and Mose Allison, among others. In 2011, the songs were commemorated in a comprehensive ve-disc retrospective, “40 Odd Years.” In 2016, Wainwright released “Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet),” his 26th and most recent album of his long and illustrious career. It follows his acclaimed “Older Than My Old Man Now” album. Wainwright refers to that album as his “death n’ decay opus.” Prior to that, Wainwright released 2010’s Grammy-winning “High Wide & Handsome.” In his newest release, Wainwright broadens his scope with a 14-song, genre-bounding set dealing with varied subject matter including depression, drinking, senior citizenship, gun control, heartbreak, pet ownership and New York City’s arcane practice of alternate side-of-the-street parking. Wainwright co-wrote the soundtrack for Judd Apatow’s hit movie “Knocked Up.” He also composed topical songs for NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” and ABC’s “Nightline.” An accomplished actor, Wainwright has appeared in lms directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, Judd Apatow and Steven Soderbergh. Wainwright has also starred on television in “M*A*S*H” and “Undeclared.” Most recently, he appeared in Soderbergh’s lm “Mosaic.” This September, Wainwright will release a memoir titled “Liner Notes, On Parents & Children, Exes & Excess, Death & Decay, & a Few of My Other Favorite Things.” In the book, he continues to emphasize the personal. Wainwright details the family history his lyrics have referenced and the fractured relationships in the Wainwright family throughout generations – the alcoholism, the in delities, the competitiveness, as well as the closeness, the successes and the joy.

10B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, March 22, 201815-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale. ‘Paul, Apostle of Christ’Genre: Drama Cast: Jim Caviezel and James Faulkner Director: Andrew Hyatt Rated: PG-13 “Paul, Apostle of Christ,” is the story of two men. Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero’s darkest, bleakest prison cell. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians, and does not inch from executing them in the grisliest ways possible. Before Paul’s death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of “The Way” and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. Bound in chains, Paul’s struggle is internal. He has survived so much – oggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure – yet as he waits for his appointment with death, he is haunted by the shadows of his past misdeeds. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten … and if he has the strength to nish well. Two men struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.‘Final Portrait’Genre: Biography Cast: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clemence Poesy, Tony Shalhoub and Sylvie Testud Director: Stanley Tucci Rated: R In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. So, begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. “Final Portrait” is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a lm which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.‘I Kill Giants’Genre: Action, fantasy and adventure Cast: Zoe Saldana, Imogen Poots, Madison Wolfe and Sydney Wade Director: Anders Walter Not rated From the acclaimed graphic novel comes an epic adventure about a world beyond imagination. Teen Barbara Thorson (Madison Wolfe) is the only thing that stands between terrible giants and the destruction of her small town. But as she boldly confronts her fears in increasingly dangerous ways, her new school counselor (Zoe Saldana) leads her to question everything she’s always believed to be true. “I Kill Giants” is an intense, touching story about trust, courage and love.‘Isle of Dogs’Genre: Animation Cast: F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bud Cort, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood Director: Wes Anderson Rated: PG-13 “Isle of Dogs” tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies to Trash Island in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire prefecture.‘Midnight Sun’Genre: Drama and romance Cast: Bella Thorne, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Quinn Shephard, Ken Tremblett, Suleka Mathew and Rob Riggle Director: Scott Speer Rated: PG-13 “Midnight Sun” is a romantic tearjerker about 17-year-old Katie Price (Bella Thorne), sheltered at home since childhood with a rare genetic condition, a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight.

As they embark on nightly summer excursions, Katie’s risk to sunlight grows and she’s presented with the gut-wrenching dilemma of whether she can live a normal life with her newfound soul mate.‘Unsane’Genre: Thriller and suspense Cast: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharaoh, Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins and Amy Irving Director: Steven Soderbergh Rated: R Scarred from the trauma of being stalked, quick-witted Sawyer Valentini (Foy) has relocated from Boston to Pennsylvania for a new life.
