The event, organized in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, drew thousands of people from around the county. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE The Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, 10000 Bay Pines Blvd., invites the public to visit its Fisher House during a community open house Thursday, March 29, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For those unfamiliar with the Fisher House, it's "a home away from home" for families of veterans and those currently serving in the military who are receiving care at Bay Pines VA, said Shentrela Diggins, Fisher House manager. Those staying at the home must live 50 miles or more from the VA center. Built by the Fisher House Foundation (FHF), Fisher Houses, which are cost-free to the families who use them, are located at military and VA medical centers around the world. "It's right on our campus so families are able to just walk over to see their loved ones," she added. The Fisher House provides families with everything they need during their stay from home-cooked meals to toiletries. "If they need something, we try to get it for them," Diggins said. "We're here to take care of them so they can take care of their loved one. We provide everything. Their laundry needs. Their food. Any resources they need, I am there for them." With nine bedrooms, the Bay Pines Fisher House is one of the smaller of these homes, she said. "They're only building 16to 21-bedroom homes, now," she added. This means the Bay Pines Fisher House is often at full capacity, she said. Often, they'll utilize the FHF's program Hotels for Heroes, where people donate their hotel rewards points, to ensure the family of those receiving treatment has a place to stay. "So, if we can't get them in the house, they still have somewhere to go," Diggins said. "We're not turning anyone away." Due to the demand at Bay Pines, the VA center has been approved for a second Fisher House, a 16-room facility that will be built next to the original home. It's tentatively scheduled to open in 2019. "There's a real need for a second home here," she said. Donations are accepted for the project, she added, as the FHF needs to purchase everything for the home from furniture to linens to games, books and other forms of entertainment. "We need anything we can get that helps us run this place," Diggins said. She added, "Anything helps. I tell people that two pennies matter in the building of the house here." Those attending the March 29 open house will receive a guided tour of the house. There also will be an information booth, light refreshments, music and more.

PETERSBURG When 17-year-old Madison Vogel took the stage to address the crowd that had gathered at St. Petersburg's Poynter Park March 24, a sea of faces full of frustration and anger, but also hope, focused their attention on what she and the other Pinellas County high school students who later spoke had to say. These teens shared a resounding message: schools should be a safe haven for students, not a place where they "might be murdered," Vogel said. In the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that killed 17, these students demanded "common sense gun control," she added. Thousands of individuals, young and old, joined them at Poynter Park in their quest for gun legislation reform. Vogel was both humbled by and in awe of the turnout. "We all kind of looked at each other in disbelief [at] different times during the day with tears in our eyes because we were so happy we were able to bring together our community," she said. "I honestly cannot really put into words how I felt then. It was beyond [what] words can describe." This is only the beginning of their ght, she added. "It's incredible to think it's only up from here." Theirs was one of hundreds of March for Our Lives events that took place around the globe that day, the largest, set in Washington, D.C., attended by hundreds of thousands of people. Vogel, a junior at Osceola Fundamental High School, led the charge at the St. Petersburg gathering, which was the of cial Pinellas County march. She was "absolutely horrified" when she learned about the Parkland massacre. School shootings are all too common, she said. So when she returned home from school Feb. 14, as her mother followed the scene unfolding in South Florida on the TV news, she took to Twitter. Vogel's message was clear: "Somebody needs to do something." Then, she realized, maybe that somebody could be her. "I turned it around on myself and thought, wait, what am I doing? How am I trying to make a change," she said. Two years earlier, she had been equally affected by the Open HouseBay Pines VA welcomes public to Fisher House Seminole resident breaks Cannonball Run record with Tesla Model 3 Photo by TURODaniel Zorrilla with his Tesla Model 3 while his children check out smaller versions of the car. They’re posed in front of a St. Petersburg mural of Nikola Tesla, the inventor and namesake of the Tesla company. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay Newspapers SEMINOLE Dan Zorrilla has always been a self-described "car guy." Growing up, he had subscriptions to a variety of car magazines, and could recognize the make, model and engine type of most vehicles he saw on the road. This interest and knowledge extended into adulthood. So, when Tesla began manufacturing electric cars, it was no surprise to anyone that knew the Seminole resident that he was intrigued by them. He was especially taken with Tesla's Model S. But in 2014, used Teslas were expensive, he said. Less than a year later, though, the car's value depreciated, and he was able to nd a preowned Model S within his price range at Tesla's Houston dealership. For two years, he drove that car, but when Tesla announced its new Model 3 vehicle with a starting base price of $35,000, a much lower price point than the Model S, even used Zorrilla knew he wanted "the newest technology," he said. He added, "I wanted the best and most cutting-edge [vehicle.]" In 2016, he put a deposit down on the car. To increase his chances of receiving one sooner, he changed his address and zip code on the order, using a friend's address in California, where Tesla is based. Those on the West Coast received their orders first, he said. By using a California zip code, he became the rst nonemployee to have the Tesla Model 3 on the East Coast.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando that killed 49. She tried to do her part by giving blood, but was turned away because she was too young at the time. Then, a day after the Stoneman Douglas shooting, someone pulled the re alarm at Osceola. Everyone teachers and students froze when it happened, Vogel said. "Nobody knew what to do," she said. "Not even our teachers. They were asking us what we should do. We were wondering, are we going to die today? Nobody should have to ever go to school and have that question cross their mind." She learned about protests surrounding gun law reform and school safety scheduled in Parkland. But the distance was too far for her to travel. So she decided to organize her own protest. Once again, she turned to Twitter. This time, she began following students from other Pinellas County high schools, teenagers she didn't already know, and put out a call: "Who wants to help?" Under the name Pinellas 4 Parkland, 20 students attended the rst meeting she organized. That was less than six weeks ago. Today, the group comprises 38 teens representing the majority of high schools in the county, Vogel said. As they organized their own protest, they learned their Parkland peers were pushing March for Our Lives, a global student-led march against the epidemic of mass school shootings set for March 24. Vogel and her new friends quickly changed gears for the protest they had been planning to turn the event into the of cial Pinellas County March for Our Lives event. At the event, following a 1.5-mile march, the student organizers spoke to the crowd of thousands, re ecting on gun control and school shootings. They were joined at Poynter Park by St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman and Congressman Charlie Crist. Several organizations were also in attendance to register students to vote. This is key to their plan for reform, Vogel added. In the past, low numbers of those aged 18 to 25 have turned out to vote, especially in non-presidential election years, she said. "That's 110 percent going to change," she said. "I even got my friends who are not politically involved to get registered to vote. If people don't want to hear us, if they don't want to help with gun control, then we're going to vote these people out." She also stresses that she and others who organized the St. Petersburg March for Our Lives protest are dedicated to working towards eradicating school gun violence. "This is a long ght," she said. "It's not going to happen overnight because of the force the NRA has over [those in] of ce." In recent weeks, the group formed a nonpro t organization called We the Students to tackle its long-term goals. They continue to use the Pinellas 4 Parkland brand at the moment, but Vogel, the group's CEO, said they consider that more of a movement. She said they have a long list of goals they hope to accomplish through We the Students, and it starts with the ban of assault ri es and bump stocks. From there, they'd like to see additional reform, including increasing the legal age to purchase a gun, improving background checks and mental health resources, and pushing for racial acceptance and equality. Leading up to March 24, members of We the Students met with local leaders mayors and councilors in their towns, state representatives, directors of nonpro t organizations, anyone who would talk to them. Vogel has met with Kriseman, former Congressman David Jolly and a representative of Senator Marco Rubio. Moving forward, she plans to keep knocking on the doors of city, state and federal leaders with her message, and also hopes to connect with Parkland students to discuss how they can work together. With March for Our Lives behind them, they can only look to the future, she said. "There's a lot of work to do." She added, "It's been absolutely out of this world. It's amazing what we've been able to accomplish in such a short time. Now we need to think about what's next."

Because their vehicle was electric, they needed to charge their car along the way. Charging stations were less common than gas stations, Zorrilla said. Still, they had a map of charging stations around the country, which helped them navigate their way. Being the end of December, the weather was frigid. To conserve power, they decided to make the trip without turning on the heater. This reduced the number of times they had to stop to charge the car. But it was dif cult for Zorrilla. "I'm a Florida guy," he said. "I'm not used to the cold weather." For the most part, it was an easy trip and they were excited that they might beat the previous Cannonball Run record for an electric car. Then came Pennsylvania. It began to snow and they ran out of windshield wiper uid. While Roy charged the car, Zorrilla traveled by foot in search of uid. They were out of it at the rst gas station he found, and with little cash on him, he was forced to hitch a ride with someone getting gas there to another nearby station. Eventually, he found what he was looking for. But his phone battery was low, so low it was about to die, and Roy was having dif culty nding him because there were several gas stations of the same name a few miles apart. "I was really worried that we weren't going to make it," Zorrilla said. "I thought that was it for the record." Then, he was able to borrow a charger and get enough battery life to contact Roy. They hit the road and didn't stop again until they reached New York. The pair completed the cross-country drive in 50 hours, 16 minutes and 32 seconds, setting a new Cannonball Run record. "It was an amazing experience," Zorrilla said. Since then, he's sold his Model 3. He didn't initially intend to sell it, though. "But I got an offer I couldn't refuse," he said.Plus, with young children, it wasn't the most practical car for his family, he said.Still, he's put his name back on the waiting list to purchase another Model 3. "It's a great car," he said. No word yet as to whether he'll attempt to break his own Cannonball Run record when he receives it.Photo by TURODaniel Zorrilla with his Tesla Model 3.

County 5A Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018Fewer residents recommend Pinellas in annual survey By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Fewer residents recommended Pinellas County as a place to live, work, raise children and retire, according to the 2018 Telephonic Study of Citizens Values. Sarah Lindemuth, senior research director at HCP Associates, a marketing consulting company in Tampa, presented results of the survey to County Commissioners March 20. HCP conducted the phone survey Dec. 4-28, 2018 with 800 complete calls including 200 from north, mid, south and beaches regions of the county. Callers were asked if they would recommend Pinellas as a place to live. Ninety-two percent answered de nitely or probably down from 96 percent in 2017 and 94 percent in 2016. Four percent said they were unsure, an increase from 2 percent in 2017 and 3 percent in 2016. Four percent said probably not or de nitely not, which was up from 2 percent in 2018 and 3 percent in 2016. A signi cant downward slide was noted in answers to the question of recommending the county as a place to work. Seventy-seven answered de nitely/probably, down from 92 percent in 2017 and 89 percent in 2016. Many more were unsure, 18 percent, compared to 6 percent in 2017 and 7 percent in 2016. Five percent answered probably not/ de nitely not, up from 3 percent in 2017 and 4 percent in 2016. The same trend was evident for the question of recommending Pinellas as a place to raise children with a 10 percent downward dive over last year. Eighty-two percent answered de nitely/probably in the 2018 survey, 92 percent in 2017 and 91 percent in 2016. Twelve percent were unsure compared to 5 percent in 2017 and 2016. Six percent said probably not/de nitely not with only 4 percent giving that answer in the two previous years. Ninety-two percent said they would definitely/probably recommend the county as a place to retire down from 95 percent in 2017 and 94 percent in 2016. Four percent were unsure, a slight increase from the 3 percent reported in the two previous years, and four percent answered probably not/de nitely not, up from 2 percent in 2017 and 3 percent in 2016. Lindemuth said due to the signi cant decline in favorable recommendations of the county being a place to work and raise children, researchers looked at demographic information to see if there were certain segments of the county's population disgruntled with conditions. They also looked at the answers to open-ended questions to search for clues. Residents who live in northern areas of the county most often noted public infrastructure as a reason the county wasn't the best place to work. Residents in mid-county areas said public infrastructure, job availability and "sense of things getting worse." In the south, the top issue was traffic congestion, and along the beaches, residents commented about development. Answers to open-ended questions by demographic groups who were least likely to recommend the county as a place to raise children also offered information as to why. Residents with a high school education or less were concerned about career opportunities for their children, available mental health resources, job availability, the economy, a general sense that things were getting worse and no visible change in conditions. Residents from households making $50,000 or less indicated problems with public space cleanliness, job availability, personal safety, opportunity for quality education and career opportunities for their children. Residents under age 40 commented about job availability, opportunities for quality education, traf c congestion and public space cleanliness. Residents with children in the household gave traf c congestion and opportunities for quality education as their reason for not recommending the county as a place to raise children. Lindemuth reported on a few bright spots in the results. Seventy-four percent said the quality of life was better or just as good as compared to ve years ago, which was up from 71 percent in 2017 and 69 percent in 2016. Eighty-eight percent said they believed the next ve years would be better or just as good, compared to 85 percent in 2017 and 84 percent in 2016. Some of the reasons given by those who believe their quality of life is worse than it was ve years ago included traf c congestion, personal safety, lack of support services, quality of schools, employment opportunities, public infrastructure and housing affordability.A new question was added to this year's survey to gauge residents' thoughts on the impact of sea-level rise on quality of life. Eight percent said it concerned them a great deal, 34 percent said it concerned them to a certain extent and 34 percent said they haven't given it much thought, and 24 percent said it doesn't concern them at all.While 93 percent of those surveyed still report having a great deal to a fair amount of trust and con dence in Pinellas County government the same percentage as last year and a slight increase from 91 percent in 2016, fewer reported they had a "great deal" of con dence. Only 21 percent said they had great confidence in government's handling of county issues, which was the same as 2016, but down from 31 percent reported last year. The 10 percent decline shifted to the "fair amount" of trust column at 72 percent compared to 62 percent last year and 70 percent in 2016. Lindemuth pointed out that despite the downward slide, residents still trusted county government more than the national average. According to Gallup polling, only 70 percent of citizens reported they had a great deal or fair amount of trust in their local governments. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

6A County Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018Forward Pinellas OKs grant recommendations By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Forward Pinellas Board members approved staff's recommendations for grant awards for two separate programs March 14. Planning Manager Chelsea Favero presented information about Complete Streets applicants. In its second year, the program awards $100,000 for concept planning projects and puts construction projects for up to $1 million on a priority list for funding by the Florida Department of Transportation. Favero said staff was recommending that the city of Dunedin received $100,000 for its concept-planning project for Skinner Boulevard from Alt. U.S. 19 to Bass Boulevard. The city will provide a 50 percent match. The only other applicant was the city of St. Petersburg for an East-West Transportation Plan. Favero said St. Petersburg received a grant last year and staff wanted to ensure equity in funding. In addition, Dunedin's plan had a greater potential for land use transformation and for economic development. Forward Pinellas Board member Michael Smith, who also is a Largo Commissioner, objected to staff's pick for the construction project to add to the FDOT priority list. Largo and the city of Oldsmar both applied and staff chose the Oldsmar project to construct 1/2 mile of roadway from St. Petersburg Drive from Dartmouth Avenue to Bayview Boulevard within the city's redevelopment area. Largo had applied for money for a 1.25 mile, two-lane roadway on Rosery Road from Missouri Avenue to Eagle Lake Park, which would connect to the Pinellas Trail. The $1 million request, with a matching $5 million from the city, also would pay for improvements to sidewalks and bicycle accommodations. Smith argued that Largo's project would provide "more bang for the buck" than the one in Oldsmar. He said it was a life-safety project due to the number of crashes in the area and pedestrian and bicyclists' deaths. Staff had recommended the Oldsmar project because it had a higher ability for "transformational impact," and the roadway has a greater mix of land uses than Largo's, which is primarily single family residential. Oldsmar's targeted roadway also has been identi ed as a multimodal corridor on the Future Land Use Map. Staff questioned whether Largo would be able to bring a regional trail connection through the corridor or just bike lanes. Smith asked why Forward Pinellas couldn't recommend both projects for FDOT's priority list. In the end, the Board agreed to recommend both projects with a higher ranking for the Oldsmar project. Board member Sandra Bradbury, who is also Pinellas Park Mayor, asked what criteria staff used to rank projects for grants and other recommendations, giving the example of a points system. Whit Blanton, Forward Pinellas executive director, said staff looks for projects that are most creative and exible for Complete Streets funding. "We didn't want to be overly restrictive using a point based system to inhibit creativity," he said. Board members also discussed giving priority to projects that provide matching grants; however, Board member Dave Eggers, who also serves on the County Commission, said that could disadvantage smaller municipalities. Blanton said staff would evaluate the situation and make recommendations for the future. Concept Planning funding will be available July 1, and construction projects will be added to the priority list in September.Planning and Place-Making grantsRodney Chatman, Planning Division manager, said when the application period ended for the Planning and Place-Making Grant pilot program, staff had received four applications vying for a share of $50,000 in money allocated by the Pinellas Planning Council. The main requirement for applications was that projects had to be related to the implementation of Planning and Urban Design Principles.Pinellas County requested $50,000 to help pay for a project estimated to cost $141,000 to implement formbased code for downtown Palm Harbor. According to the Form-Based Code Institute, "Formbased code is a land development regulation that fosters predictable built results and a high-quality public realm by using physical form (rather than separation of uses) as the organizing principle for the code. A form-based code is a regulation, not a mere guideline, adopted into city, town, or county law. A form-based code offers a powerful alternative to conventional zoning regulation." Staff recommended that the county receive a $25,000 grant. The city of St. Petersburg submitted an application asking for $50,000 for two projects of $25,000, which was the total cost of the projects. The rst part was to develop graphic illustrations of nine "missing middle" housing typologies and the second part was an analysis of current lending practices for "missing middle" housing project nancing. According to information on missingmiddlehousing.com, "Missing Middle is a range of multi-unit or clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for walkable urban living." Staff recommended that the city receive a $25,000 grant. St. Pete Beach had requested $37,500 for design, fabrication and installation of three way nding signs, and Tarpon Springs put in an application for $50,000 to conduct a market analysis, highest and best use redevelopment scenario exercises, business retention/recruitment strategy and charrettes. The board unanimously approved staff's recommendations. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

Pinellas County made over $1 billion in investments last year and received a clean audit report again, he said. John Grady, a member of the executive team at Public Trust Advisors, a consultant hired to assist the Clerk's Finance Division with investments, told commissioners that the county's investment portfolio was in compliance with its written investment plan and state statutes. The portfolio is "well diversi ed" in highly rated U.S. Treasury notes and federal agency notes. In addition, the county has cash and money market funds to provide for short term expenditures. And investments are paying off. As of Feb. 28, year-to-date earnings were just over $5.3 million compared to nearly $3.6 million on the same date last year. He said interest rates are higher compared to a year ago and in ationary pressures may continue the trend. County commissioners approved spending $60,000 during last year's budget talks to hire an investment consultant. Grady said his Public Trust Advisors provides the Clerk's Finance Division with additional resources for investment decisions and overall portfolio strategy via monthly calls and provides advice for each investment. Public Trust is working with the Finance Division to develop a formal cash ow analysis. John Weber, a partner with Crowe Horwath, provided a report on the recent audit on the Comprehensive Financial Report, which came back with an "unmodi ed opinion," which means all is well. The independent auditing firm also found "no material weaknesses of signi cant de ciencies" with the county's internal control and compliance. Weber reported that the county received an unmodified opinion with no material weaknesses, signi cant de ciencies, nding or questioned cost in the handling of federal or state grants. And the good news continued for audits for the Constitutional Of cers and other funds. Weber reported that the county's General Fund Balance was slightly less in 2017, nearly $117 million enough to pay the bills for 2.5 months. In 2016, the general fund balance was about $124 million, which is enough to sustain the county operations for 2.8 months. The county had less debt in 2017, thanks to paying off some sewer bonds. The outstanding debt last year was just over $154 million compared to $166 million in 2016. The county's debt per capita remains the lowest in the state at $160 million. In other business, the Commission: Approved a contract with Cone & Graham Inc. for design and construction of the Pinellas Trail Loop north segment. Approved an agreement with The Forestry Company for ecosystem management for Al-Bar and Cross Bar ranches. Awarded a bid to Manhattan Construction for the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport ticketing "A" in-line check baggage inspection system project. Awarded a bid to Walbridge Aldinger LLC for phase 3 of terminal improvements (Gates 7-10) at the airport. Approved a resolution in support of Jabil Inc. as a quality applicant for an economic development ad valorem tax exemption. Commissioner Karen Seel voted no. Sitting as the Emergency Medical Services Authority, approved the second amendment to the contract acknowledging the purchase of Paramedics Plus by Paramedics Logistics Florida. Approved a TEFRA resolution for issuance by the Industrial Development Authority of revenue bonds not to exceed $15.9 million on behalf of Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

8A County Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018Pinellas needs millions of dollars to fund school safety By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County officials are scrambling to find a way to ful ll a state mandate to put a school resource of cer in every public school. Everyone agrees it's a good idea. The problem is cost. Nobody has the money to pay for it. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri brought the problem to the County Commission March 20. In a letter to County Administrator Mark Woodard, Gualtieri explained that the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, passed by the legislature and signed into law by the governor March 9, mandates that a safe school of cer be placed in every elementary, middle and high school, including charter schools. A SSO is defined as a sheriff or police department employed law enforcement of cer, a school district employed law enforcement of cer, or a school guardian (armed school personnel). The school board and the sheriff must approve use of the guardian program, and the school board has voted against arming school personnel. While the sheriff respects that decision, he isn't against using armed school personnel, as long as a law enforcement of cer is the "line of rst defense" and has primary responsibility for safety on school campuses. But, cost is the real issue. To comply with the new law using law enforcement, 101 new school resource officers are needed 81 for elementary schools, which currently don't have SROs, and 18 for charter schools. Ten more are needed at the high schools to meet the 1 of cer per 1,500 students guideline. And, 31 additional "relief" SROs are needed to make sure there are enough when SROs are sick, need training, are on vacation or have off-campus duties, etc. About 46 SROs are assigned to middle and high schools now all provided by the sheriff's of ce or municipal police departments. Gualtieri said the average cost of an SRO is $100,000. Currently, the school board pays $57,944 of that cost and the Sheriff's Of ce or municipal police department pays the difference. The cost to the school board per year is about $2.2 million. The Sheriff's Of ce and police departments are paying about $1.6 million plus the cost of providing relief personnel and supervision. Gualtieri said 14 supervisors would be needed to provide one per every 10 SROs. "Combining current and needed SRO's, the total SRO staf ng will need to be approximately 201 of cer/deputies/supervisors," Gualtieri said in his letter. The cost would be about $20.1 million. The School District will receive about $6.1 million from the state, and the Sheriff's Of ce and police departments will contribute $1.6 million. But that leaves a gap of $12.4 million plus another $11.2 million in startup costs, including cars, guns, uniforms, computers and other equipment. Gualtieri said he doesn't have the money. The School Board doesn't either. And to raise the millage to get more money, would require the School Board to hold a referendum, which couldn't happen until 2019. If the referendum passed, no new revenue would come in until 2020. Gualtieri said he was on a "very, very tight timeframe." New SROS have to be ready to go by July 1 to make sure everything is in place before school starts in August. He said $12.4 million is needed now. He plans to staff many of the schools with personnel on overtime or temporary duty while new deputies and officers are hired. He said the full amount of the start-up funding wouldn't be needed immediately. Law enforcement also is required to assist every school to conduct a threat assessment, in addition to providing active shooter drills every month, which Gualtieri said was good, but that costs money too. Another cost stemming from the new law comes from the new ability to seize weapons of people who are Baker Acted. "Before, we couldn't take their guns, now we can get a court order, which is a great thing," he said. But it is up to the Sheriff's Of ce to implement the new program. He said he would need a whole unit just to get the job done. Gualtieri supports the new law. He said the legislators did a lot in a short time after the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. But he is disappointed that the state didn't provide adequate funding. Commissioner Dave Eggers described the situation as a "community challenge." He agrees that additional armed personnel on campus could be bene cial. "It would only take one bullet to take out an of cer and there would be a gap in time to get law enforcement to respond," Eggers said. Gualtieri said law enforcement officers couldn't be everywhere. He supports people's right to defend themselves. Gualtieri doesn't have a problem using trained school personnel who feel comfortable carrying a weapon as a secondary line of defense. Gualtieri said to participate in the guardian program, school personnel would have to go through 145 hours of training, go through psychological testing and drug testing, and have a background check. It would be up to the sheriff to decide if they would be approved as part of the program. He said "guardians" would not be considered as law enforcement but could serve a good role as backup. Gualtieri will be meeting with police departments to talk about active shooter training and other aspects of the new law. He said the Sheriff's Of ce is willing to ll any gaps in service if needed. He is reaching out to retired deputies and some are willing to consider coming back. He also will begin recruiting new hires.He said there was no choice but to figure out a way to comply with the law. When asked what the consequences would be if the county couldn't comply, he said "an incident." "I don't want to knock on a door to tell them their 7-year-old was killed in a massacre at school," he said. "The penalty for not complying is we're all going to be held responsible." County staff was asked to schedule a work session with the School Board. County Commission Chair Ken Welch oated the idea of possibly giving the School District a bridge loan even though the School Board has not yet asked for help. "If I had the funding, I'd just do it," Gualtieri said, adding that he would nd a way to make sure "kids are as safe as they can be." "They need to feel safe and parents need to feel that their kids are safe," he said. Commissioner Karen Seel asked if the Commission wanted to consider extending the waiting period to buy a gun to ve days the same as the Hillsborough County Commission had done. Gualtieri said he didn't care, but he didn't think it would make a difference, as the waiting period only applied to purchases made at a gun store. He described the move as a "feel good window dressing" that wouldn't prevent people from buying a gun at other places."This is a people problem, not a gun problem," he said.

Deadline to pay property taxes extended to April 2Pinellas County Tax Collector's Of ce is mailing payment reminder notices to everyone who hadn't paid their bill by early March. If you already paid and still receive a notice, you can check the status of your payment by selecting the Property Tax tab at taxcollect.com. Property owners can search by the owner's name, address, property parcel number or account number. The deadline to pay 2017 property taxes has been extended to Monday, April 2. Mailed payments must be postmarked by March 31. Property taxes are usually due on March 31, but Florida law requires an extension whenever the due date falls during a weekend. If you miss the deadline, interest is added to unpaid taxes, including 3 percent interest for real estate taxes and 1.5 percent for tangible personal property taxes. Property owners are encouraged to pay online at taxcollect.com to ensure they beat the payment deadline. There is no extra fee to pay by eCheck. While you're online, you can sign up for paperless billing to receive your next property tax bill by email. Property owners also can sign up online for a quarterly payment plan for future property tax bills. "More than 60,000 Pinellas County property owners paid their last tax bill online, and we expect to see that number continue to grow due to the convenience and security of our online payment system," said Pinellas County Tax Collector Charles W. Thomas. The Florida Constitution established the office of Tax Collector to collect property taxes and distribute the money to various taxing authorities, such as the School Board, County, and cities. Taxing authorities set their own tax rates to fund their budgets.

Police 11A Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018Largo of cer shoots, kills driver in self-defense, police say By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Police have identi ed the man who was shot and killed during a "violent, explosive situation" at a Largo gas station Friday night. Police said Linus F. Phillip, 30, was killed at the Wawa at 1215 N. Missouri Ave. when he injured an of cer while trying to elude arrest. According to police, Of cers Matthew Steiner and Prentice Ables were on patrol at 5:55 p.m. when they noticed a Nissan Altima with illegally tinted windows. Police said they engaged Phillip in a conversation at the Wawa, which one independent witness described as "polite" on the part of the of cers. While standing near Phillip's car, police said the officers smelled marijuana emanating from the vehicle, and, as they attempted to detain Phillip, he jumped into the driver's seat and tried to ee. Police said Steiner, a seven-year veteran with the LPD, was trapped halfway inside the vehicle and dragged while Phillip put the vehicle in reverse and accelerated. The driver's door was open and the concrete bollards were close, so police said Steiner red his weapon in self-defense, fell from the driver's compartment and passed beneath the driver's door, which brushed him. Police said Steiner narrowly avoided being run over as the car slammed into the bollards. After striking another car and hitting more bollards, the vehicle came to rest between the rows of gas pumps, police said. Both of cers and responding backups began medical assistance to Phillip and called for Fire Rescue paramedics. Steiner was taken to Morton Plant Hospital with minor injuries, and Phillip was taken to Largo Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. During a news conference Friday night, Lt. Randall Chaney, public information of cer for the LPD, said the actions of Steiner, an of cer with the department's Problem Oriented Policing unit, may have done more than save his own life. "At the time that the of cer felt he was in peril for his own life and took action, it stopped the actions of the suspect at the time and it may very well have prevented people from being injured or possibly killed at that parking lot tonight," said Chaney, who estimated there were probably about a dozen people at the store. Police said a signi cant amount of crack cocaine, powdered cocaine, marijuana and cash were found in Phillip's car. Phillip served two stints in prison for sales and possession of cocaine and methamphetamine, and was out of prison on early release. He has previous arrests for driving while his license was suspended or revoked, eeing and eluding police, tampering with evidence and traf cking in methamphetamine. Chaney added that Steiner is in good condition. "He's doing OK, all things considered," he said. "It's a very dif cult situation to go through something like this." Linus F. Phillip Police beatLargo man charged with video voyeurismPINELLAS PARK Police arrested a 49-year-old Largo man March 22 on nine felony charges of video voyeurism. At least ve additional charges are pending. Pinellas Park police began an investigation March 2 after responding to an office building at 12360 66th St. N. to investigate a suspicious incident in one of the women's restrooms. Of cers then found separate video recorders above the ceiling tiles in two women's restrooms in the building that houses 60 small businesses. Detectives searched the recorders and found video images of multiple women and two men "during the private act" of using the restroom, according to a press release. Detectives also found images of John Phillip Gibbs, who was a maintenance worker at the building. Gibbs was booked into the Pinellas County Jail March 22. Bail was set at $90,000. Detectives spent several days working on identifying the victims, and as of March 22, have identi ed 14 different women. Several more remain unidenti ed, police say. Detectives noti ed the of ce building management of their ndings. Building management has since noti ed 60 small businesses inside the building where the common restrooms are located. Detectives believe that Gibbs had been recording such videos since the beginning of February. Police are asking anyone who works, visited, or has been a customer of any of the businesses inside the of ce building, who thinks they may have been a victim, to contact detectives at 727-369-7864. The investigation is ongoing.SPC student arrested for having knife on campusST. PETERSBURG St. Petersburg police arrested a 21-year-old St. Petersburg College student March 21 after she displayed a knife on the Gibbs Campus, 6605 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg.

PETERSBURG St. Petersburg College will present the St. Pete Tiny Home Festival Saturday and Sunday, April 7 and 8, at the SPC Allstate Center, 3200 34th St. S., St. Petersburg. Organized by LocalShops1 and Ivy Group Consultants, the festival features the latest in tiny home living trends. In addition to the tiny structures, the festival will bring a lineup of more than two dozen leading experts in the Tiny House movement. The event also will showcase local food trucks, mobile boutiques, artists and home-related businesses, plus free activities for children and more. Tiny houses are homes typically sized under 500 square feet, and sometimes as small as 100 square feet, and can be on wheels, for mobility, or built on foundations. Tiny Houses are becoming more and more popular throughout the nation, thanks to their reduced cost and reduced carbon footprint. The Tiny Homes coming to the St. Pete Festival include model homes by builders such as Tampa Bay Tiny Homes, as well as custom-built homes that are owner-occupied, including Tiffany the Tiny Home, the 1920s craftsmanstyle bungalow, complete with a stained glass window; Shorty's Tiny Home, the beautifully appointed Victorian home; Biggie Bus, the bright green converted school bus; and "Brad," the sticker van micro-home. St. Pete Eco-Village, a local nonpro t focused on sustainable living practices, also is bringing two of its own Tinies. Altogether, more than 20 Tiny Structures are expected at the festival. More than 5,000 people are expected at the St. Pete Tiny Home Festival, many traveling from throughout the state and even across the country. General admission includes full access to the festival grounds, where guests will get to explore the Tiny Homes and speak directly with the homeowners and builders. Admission also includes access to SPC's ballroom, which will feature presentations about zoning and building regulations, decluttering your home, living green and much more.

The accreditation represents the HEP staff's dedication to meeting rigorous CARF Policies and Procedures and undergoing an in-depth peer review process to earn the highest mark a facility can earn. "HEP has maintained a longtime commitment to continually improving and expanding our services to the homeless population and the community," said Zachary White in a press release.

The American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys is a third-party attorney rating organization that publishes an annual list of the Top 10 Personal Injury attorneys in each state. Attorneys who are selected to the "10 Best" list must pass AIOPIA's rigorous selection process, which is based on client and/or peer nominations, thorough research, and AIOPIA's independent evaluation. AIOPIA's annual list was created to be used as a resource for clients during the attorney selection process. One of the most signi cant aspects of the selection process involves attorneys' relationships and reputation among his or her clients. As clients should be an attorney's top priority, AIOPIA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved signi cant success in the eld of Personal Injury law without sacri cing the service and support they provide. Selection criteria therefore focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of client satisfaction. 010418 C o l d w e l l B a n k e r S u n V i s t a Coldwell Banker Sun Vista # 1 C O L D W E L L B A N K E R #1 COLDWELL BANKER A f l i a t e Af liate S A L E S & L I S T I N G S SALES & LISTINGS I n P i n e l l a s In Pinellas 032918 Cell: 727-902-1437 Off: 727-595-1604RichRippetoe@gmail.com www.BeachRealEstatePro.comwww.CBSVR.comCall Rich Rippetoe at (727) 902-1437 Presented By:Rich Rippetoe, Realtor, MBA Newer SUNSATIONAL Townhome in Indian Rocks Beach!The Cove in IRB!

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018LETTERSDrink from fountain raised eyebrowsEditor: After what my husband and I witnessed at Eagle Lake Park the other afternoon after completing our walk I will never drink from another park or public drinking fountain again. This was sickening. We saw a young woman lift her small dog she had been walking and place it on the fountain and allowed the dog to lap from the drinking fountain and began to do its business there, also. We were parked near where she was parked and just getting into our car to leave when we saw this. She saw us looking at her in horror, proceeded to laugh at us, and pranced away with her dog in her arms. I could not believe what we had witnessed and wondered how many times I or some other unsuspecting person had taken a drink from one of these fountains without the knowledge I had just acquired ... UGH! Angie Simon LargoCommissioners misguided on speed limitsEditor: Largo city commissioners are moving to reduce residential speed limits from 30 mph to 25 mph to reduce accident rates. While this action may seem reasonable, when the facts are known it is so ridiculous as to be laughable. Complaints of speeding on certain residential streets, endangering pedestrians, have prompted this action, even though city engineers said they don't think the speed reduction will reduce accident rates because none of the crashes with pedestrians last year occurred on residential roadways. As the lone common-sense opinion, expressed by Commissioner Holmes, "This thing looks like a solution in search of a problem. I mean, there's no safety aspect here." And yet, the commissioners are willing to spend $50,000 on the reduced speeding issue. Why? In their own words, they "want to show citizens at least that the commission cares." In other words, they want to appear to be doing something, even though the facts show the action will have no real effect on solving the problem. In fact, studies show that "most people hovered around the 30 mph limit." Yes, the occasional wacko is barreling down a street at 60 mph. Those are the reasons for the complaints. Doesn't it make more sense to go after those rare speeders than change the speed limit for all? Is this perhaps more about increasing revenues from increased speeding tickets than solving a problem? Mayor Brown even admits he doubts changing the speed limit will solve the problem, yet says he wants to give the impression that they are doing something. So, they are willing to do something that makes no sense and costs $50,000, just to create the appearance that they care! Yes, ridiculous! Bob Radez LargoFrom the musical standard – spring is hereEditor: As we still recover from the whirlwind of gala festivities in the wake of Ground Hog Day; putting on the St. Patrick's Day "ritz" with an Irish "jig" to the bass drum and bagpipe corps of the Shannon Rovers marching band to the calendar "benchmark" of the semi-annual anachronistic time change of "Rock Around the Rock" for what is hopefully the last one we have to deal with. Begging the rhetorical, but who if anyone would welcome this outdated "time-worn" ritual except maybe the dairy farmers and their herds but deep down they probably feel like the rest of us preferring to leave it one way or the "udder" pun intended spring has sprung! Art Bailey SeminoleHow will we mark centenary of WWI?Editor: It will soon be the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War I "The Great War." How will this event be celebrated/honored on the 11th hour of the 11th month of the 11th day of 1918 in 2018? The brave men (women?) who offered up their futures, their bodies, their lives for victory and freedom. My own uncle was one of those who "made the supreme sacri ce." (New Hampshire). I am re-reading the article in the Beacon of April 26, 2013. A related article suggested all military organizations in the area work together to reproduce from photos and microfilm this wall and additional researched names it suggested this might be at Crest Lake Park (perhaps it could be in Coachman Park by the library). The two statues which were replaced at Memorial Causeway can only be seen if one looked left while steering right to enter the causeway and that only as the trees behind allow a clean view. A plaque on each base is noticeable but un-readable unless one got out of the car and looked closely for it. Could these be re-set in the area of a reproduction of the WWI Wall of Honor? I hope at the least to see several articles commemorating this important event. May I hear your thoughts about this? Ruth Zammit ClearwaterReader enjoys her newspapersEditor: This note is to thank you for the exceptionally well-organized, insightful and entertaining weekly publications of The Beacon(s). I fully agree with the post on page 18A (March 22) in the Seminole Beacon titled: Free Papers and the reasons for why we need them. I am a newish/younger senior and have always (from a very young age), enjoyed reading hard copy, as opposed to online. I nd it more relaxing and all around enjoyable. There's no extra noise, strain in any way or discomfort from reading a paper on a comfy sofa or outside in a comfy chair, at my leisure; leaving it; going back to it and not being concerned with a bleep, blip or what have you, from an electronic device. Thank you again for your publications (I usually read both the Seminole and Beach Beacons as well as the Sunday, Tampa Bay Times). I have also shared the Beacons with many of my fellow residents and friends, at my condo and again, I/we, thank you kindly. Wishes for continued success and kindest regards. Sharon Sade SeminoleKiwanis: Thanks to Pow Wow volunteersEditor: The Kiwanis Club of Seminole wants to thank all the community, nonmember and club member volunteers that helped us provide beverages to the thirsty visitors to the Seminole Pow Wow last weekend. We had over 150 hours of volunteer help from individuals and the Junior Woman's Club of Seminole while our own Kiwanis Club spent another 200 hours of time to provide this service. We also had our 11th Annual Fire Truck Pull! This is a sponsored event for teams of athletes competing for boasting rights for the fastest time to pull a full-sized re truck across a 100-foot course. Over 40 sponsors provided the opportunity for 18 teams and 100plus participants a chance to win first place! The Bauder K-Kids, Seminole Middle School Builders Club, Seminole High School Key Club, Seminole High School Band (Woodwinds) and Float Enterprises teams all won trophies in their respective classes. The last pull, just for fun, was made by a combined group of youth, adults, parents and spectators in a record 14 seconds! The fastest team time was by Walgreens of Clearwater. Many thanks to all the sponsors, members, volunteers, participants and city of Seminole staff in helping make these events and fundraisers successful. We use the proceeds to "Help the Children of the World, One Child at a Time!" Cliff Englert President Kiwanis Club of SeminoleDictionary needs new de nitionEditor: Merriam-Webster de nes fake news as a "frequently used description of a political story which is seen as damaging to an agency, entity, or person." Since its recent proliferation, Webster might consider rede ning its explanation to "the continual dumbing down of America." John Tischner Dunedin During the past few years something quite pleasing to me has taken place: the growth in the number of women who deliver news to us via our TV screens. I haven't done a precise comparison count, but I'd guess that at least two-thirds of the TV news anchors/analysts/ contributors that we now see in an average day are females. Not many years ago TV news programs were dominated by men such as Walter Cronkite, Peter Jennings, Ted Koppel, Mike Wallace, Chet Huntley and David Brinkley. They would be supported by a cast of correspondents and editors, who would also be mostly males. That balance has now shifted toward the increased use of women throughout the elds of news gathering and delivery. What's equally notable is that most of these women are young and bright. In con dent tones and with self-assured manners they discuss news events and issues so complicated that it makes my head (and maybe yours) spin as I try to comprehend the stories they're giving us. Some readers will reply, "What's so surprising about any of this? Why should age and gender make any difference in reporting the news?" I agree. It shouldn't, but it has, and in many cases still does. But it's encouraging to see these irrelevant criteria gradually lessen or disappear. However, a regrettable factor that doesn't seem to fade with the years is that many of the women (and more than a few men) who speak to the world by way of TV microphones have lousy voices. You don't like "lousy"? Okay then try whiny, nasal, regrettable, irritating, ear-piercing, childlike or simply unpleasant. One or more of those adjectives t many of the voices I hear each day as I watch TV. Such is their frequency that I increasingly press the "mute" button and turn on the closed captions alternative that, praise God, most of today's TV sets are equipped with.I'm enough of a stoic and realist to accept the fact that in most cases a person's voice is what it is, good or bad. What your voice and the words you speak are like when you're 15 or 20 is what they will sound like when you're 80. However, exceptions to that rule of thumb do exist. They are common in motion pictures, in stage plays, in the world of politics, spoken advertisements and salesmanship in general. Some of the voices we hear from successful practitioners in those arenas may be exactly as they were 20 or 50 years earlier, but not many.Instead, they are often the hard-won product of vocal instruction, speech training and similar disciplines. This sometimes includes surgery on the lips, tongue, vocal cords, nose and sinuses. The enormous cost of all of this in time, pain, money, patience and other factors is one of the reasons most of us don't spend any time worrying about how we sound when we speak, sing, shout, pray, gargle, belch or say good morning to our neighbors. Another reason is that Americans are much more interested in how people look than how they sound. If you doubt that, just count the rarity of advertisements (via any medium) that promise customers better voices and speaking techniques. In contrast, print, TV and digital media are loaded with ads for whiter teeth, smoother skin, skinnier bodies, glossier hair and tighter abs. When signing up on the Web to search for a lifelong partner, how many applicants list "A high quality, easy-listening voice" as a mandatory qualification for their future spouses? Very few, I'd guess. I doubt if more than one marriage candidate in 20 approaching the altar on their wedding date has asked themselves "Am I actually prepared to listen to the sound of my soulmate's voice for the next 40 years?" On the other hand, a less-than-soothing set of tonsils has proved to be no impediment for persons you may have heard of. Such as Ethel Merman, Joan Rivers, Whoopi Goldberg, Janis Joplin, Fran Drescher and Carol Channing. A similar list for men would include Jimmy Durante, Al Pacino and who was that raving lunatic who used to scream at his adoring fans? a guy named Hitler. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net.A lesson everyone needs to learnWhen someone complains the government did something they don't like, I sometimes engage in a fun little exercise known as "name your lawmaker." Sure, everyone knows Donald Trump, and Stormy Daniels is on the way to becoming a household name. However, the laws that most directly affect our lives are made closer to home. So, I'll ask someone to name the state representative or senator from their district. Or the county commissioner that represents them. Or who is running for those of ces in November from both major parties. Most of the time they can't. I've had people look at me blankly when I mention outgoing House Speaker Richard Corcoran in a conversation. It's clear they don't know who he is, or that arguably he has been the most powerful person in the state for the last couple of years. Usually, the conversation ends with "well, I don't really care about politics" and that's the problem. In about seven months, these same folks are going to be asked to help choose Florida's next governor, a U.S. senator, and a whole bunch of other important positions that will determine the state's course for the next several years. That's why it's interesting that the Constitutional Revision Commission is considering a proposal to place an amendment on the ballot in November to ensure public schools continue teaching how the government works. A nal decision on that will be made in April. Yes, sponsor Don Gaetz a former senate president noted, there already is a civics requirement in public schools. And his proposal admittedly is short on specifics, and schools already grapple with enough mandates from Tallahassee. It's also true that adding another amendment for voters to consider shouldn't be taken lightly. But as we have seen, the Legislature (I'm looking at you, Mr. Corcoran) can't resist messing with public education. "The Legislature changes its mind," Gaetz told the Tampa Bay Times. "Especially education issues go in and out of fashion. The constitution enshrines what we don't change our minds about." That's a strong point. How much longer until someone in Tallahassee gets the bright idea that it's a lot better for their job security to eliminate that messy how-it-works requirement and just add on more math and science, lest future graduates decide to vote them out of of ce. Given recent events, I imagine some of them look at the determined and well-informed students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and wish they had never heard of civics. Without their raised voices, I seriously doubt the gun-control bill would have even been considered, much less passed, by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Scott. It's normal to complain about the in uence of money on politics, but people can and sometimes do make a difference. Yes, politics can be more than a little tedious and can go deep into the weeds. As the high school students learned on their trip to Tallahassee, not every lawmaker is willing to listen. I mean, who can forget the rude brushoff state Rep. Elizabeth Porter gave on the House oor when she said lawmakers should ignore students because they lack the "wisdom" to make the laws. But the point of all this is to learn how things work and, if need be, work around those who think they have a copyright on "wisdom" and knowledge. That's a lesson everyone needs to learn.

16A Outdoors Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018Dolphins have seaside spring training year-roundThree dolphins burst out of the water together, gaining traction by leaving the sea as they fled pursuers at top speed. A fourth dolphin leapt behind them to catch up. Two more dolphins were giving chase several yards behind the quartet. They too leapt out of the water to gain traction. When the pair nally caught the quartet, all six dolphins toppled down into the sea. Swaying waters and occasional flying body parts were all that revealed the struggle below. Then individual dolphins pounced on a rival by bursting out of the water, arching high over its surface, and curling tightly to dive back in at the same spot where it had emerged. The swaying waters were soon muddy, the sea floor churned up by agitated dolphins shoving each other against it to renew the ight and end the battle. It might have been the dead of winter, but the battle was over love. Five bottlenose bulls, two pairs of bonded bull buddies and one singleton, fought over little local lady Paisley. One pair was made up of senior bulls Rippington and Trigger. Working together, they formed a first-order alliance that out-gunned their rivals in bulk and experience. The other pair was made up of junior bulls Oyster and VC. They have steadily ascended the ranks of local bulls in the last three years because of Oyster's confrontational attitude. His buddy VC, wise or shy, lets Oyster do most of the ghting and plants his punches more deliberately. The singleton, Fugazi, himself a junior bull but confrontational like Oyster, helped the junior pair against the senior pair. By working together, the trio formed a second-order alliance. Repeatedly the two alliances lined up, faced each other, and dashed at each other head-on, diving at the last minute and kicking rivals with flailing flukes upon descent. Again and again, they skirmished under water as the lady swam round and round the circumference of their ght. After several rounds, with breathing breaks in between, their pounces weakened and were eventually replaced with mere heavy breathing. The pair and trio seemed to have established that they were evenly matched. The ve bulls then opted to form a fairly organized, shoulder-toshoulder rank and simply followed the lady around without accosting her, ultimately wandering off in different directions. There were no clear winners. Apparently, their ght had not paid off. The next time we saw Ms. Paisley, she was again being following by a fairly organized, shoulder-to-shoulder rank of evenly-matched bulls. But they were different bulls than before. In fact, Ms. Paisley spent her entire winter like that. Each skirmish gave Paisley time to judge the bulls vying for her attention. Each skirmish provided the bulls with key information on their rivals' spirit, stamina and skill. This was good preparation for spring. Spring is the season of love. Many species have their breeding and birth seasons in spring. Spring in Florida comes early. About the time local citizens are recycling their dried Christmas trees, local birds are beginning their breeding season. Many advertise amour by changing colors. Great white herons develop brilliant green seres. Smaller snowy egrets develop blood orange seres the color of Texas grapefruits. Pelicans advertise with yellow heads offset with glowing white or velvety chocolate necks. Great blue herons do not obviously change colors but can be seen flying solemnly by, holding twigs in their mouths as they head to their nest to enhance its spiky nursery. In this light, the dolphins' winter try-outs and tournaments in love's arena make sense compared to other animals' breeding behavior. Both males and females are preparing for spring competition, courtship and breeding. However, other animals get on with the business of babies and, once accomplished, do not think of love the rest of the year. Rivalries cease. Peace reigns. In striking contrast, local dolphins skirmish all year round. Their winter skirmishes intensify and continue through spring and summer. They continue into the autumn when they cool slightly like the waters. But courtships, alliances and rivalries never cease. This does not make sense compared to other animals' breeding behavior. But it makes sense to people. We can irt and fall in love any time of the year. The idea that we must wait for a speci c season to make love and have our babies, as other animals do, is absurd. Love may not always be visible but it is always available. Similarly, local dolphins are not bound to a strict breeding and birth season like local birds. Dolphins can reproduce any time of year.Is year-round availability of love related to dolphins' yearround skirmishes? Year-round skirmishes cannot occur at full intensity or rivals would kill each other off and the behavior would vanish. Perhaps some are try-outs or tournaments metaphorically akin to practice ball games during baseball's spring training. The difference is that seaside spring training lasts all year and is periodically punctuated by successful fertilizations, usually in summer, with each female serving metaphorically as her own personal World Series playoff game.If this metaphor fits, it was incorrect above to say that the bulls' fight had not paid off. It would be correct to say that every bull ght provides valuable social information to those who are paying attention.

Call 727-565-0550 or visit www.jannuslive.com. The Revivalists skyrocketed to massive success in 2017 with their hit single “Wish I Knew You,” which hit No. 1 at Alternative and Adult Alternative Radio, reached Top 15 at Hot AC, and spent nine consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Featuring front man David Shaw’s unmistakable soulful rasp, an indelible melody and a mix of bluesy rock and Southern R&B swagger, “Wish I Knew You” has helped the band rack up more than 100 million streams to date and earned them multiple national TV appearances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Today” and “Conan.” “Men Amongst Mountains,” the band’s latest album, was released in July 2015. According to a press release from Press Here Publicity, 2018 is already gearing up to be another major year for the New Orleans seven-piece. The Revivalists recently received two 2018 iHeartRadio Music Award nominations for Best New Rock/Alternative Rock Artist and Alternative Rock Song of the Year and announced sets at Bonnaroo, BottleRock Festival and Peach Music Festival among others. The Revivalists features David Shaw (lead vocals/guitar), Zack Feinberg (guitar), Andrew Campanelli (drums), George Gekas (bass), Ed Williams (pedal steel guitar), Rob Ingraham (saxophone), Michael Girardot (keyboard and trumpet) and PJ Howard (percussion). According to the band’s website, the seeds of The Revivalists were planted in 2007 when Feinberg, out riding his bike, came across Shaw sitting on his front porch belting an original song called “Purple Heart” – which wound up on The Revivalists debut album “Vital Signs.” Shaw had moved to New Orleans two weeks prior for its rich musical history and because he had heard the city was in need of construction workers to help rebuild the city after Hurricane Katrina. Feinberg had also moved to New Orleans for the music scene and to study psychology at Tulane University. He had only been in the dorms for an hour when everyone was forced to evacuate due to the impending hurricane. That day in August 2007, Feinberg and Shaw struck up a conversation and instantly began to jam and collaborate, establishing an immediate musical connection and friendship. Within weeks they had invited Campanelli, whom Feinberg had met through workshops at New Orleans music venue Tipitina’s, to join them. Rounding out the band’s lineup is Ingraham, Gekas and Girardot, whom Feinberg and Campanelli knew from Tulane and Loyola respectively, as well as Williams, whom they all knew from the local music scene.

Entertainment 3B Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018 By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersSAFETY HARBOR – The Safety Harbor Art & Music Center will present the fth annual Safety Harbor SongFest Saturday, April 7, noon to 10 p.m., at Safety Harbor Waterfront Park, 110 Veterans Memorial Lane, Safety Harbor. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the gate. Visit www.safetyharborsongfest.com. The festival will feature performances by Fantastic Negrito, Josh Ritter, Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root, Larkin Poe, Selwyn Birchwood, Meiko, Daniel Mohr, Betty Fox, Mountain Holler, Kristopher James, Ari Chi, The Urban Gypsies of Florida, Jonnie Morgan, and Ezra Huleatt of Black Taxi. Fantastic Negrito, who returns for the second year in a row, won a Grammy award last year for Best Contemporary Blues Album. “Safety Harbor is becoming my second home,” said Negrito in a press release. “I was first introduced to this community through Chris Cornell. I feel the truest vibration of love from these good people.” Born Xavier Dphrepaulezz, Negrito’s musical style is self-described as “black roots music for everyone,” blending old school blues with modernized loops, slide guitar and drums. “We are so happy Xavier and the band are coming back,” said Todd Ramquist, SHAMc co-founder and festival organizer. “He truly embodies the spirit of our festival and his talent is limitless.” Negrito recently unveiled plans for “Please Don’t Be Dead,” his next album due to be released June 15 on the Cooking Vinyl and Blackball Universe label. “I wrote this album because I fear for the life of my black son,” said Negrito in a press release from Big Hassle. “I fear for the lives of my daughters. I am uncertain about what kind of future they will face. Will someone shoot up their school? Will they become addicted to prescription pills? Will they wind up on the street, sleeping under freeways and overpasses? Will the police murder my son? I came up with the name ‘Please Don’t Be Dead’ because I felt like we’d lost our way as a society – and I know what happens when you chase the wrong things. It’s the story of my life.” “Please Don’t Be Dead” is heralded by “Plastic Hamburgers,” the lead track. “With ‘Plastic Hamburgers’ I wanted to come out swinging,” added Negrito. “With everything happening in the world, I wanted to take it head on. Addiction, guns, censorship, overconsumption. I wanted people to feel like this is our song, our rallying cry: Let’s tear down the walls that separate us and face who we really are.” Negrito is truly an artist for these times: a multi-talented, genre-agnostic original whose life and work embody the struggle, energy, truth and creativity of black music. Negrito was raised in an orthodox Muslim household, the eighth of 14 children of a deeply religious Somali-Caribbean immigrant. The family moved from western Massachusetts to Oakland, California, when Negrito was just 12 years old. His new hometown’s vibrant black community provided a massive culture shock after what was an extremely conservative childhood. Raised by the streets of Oakland, Negrito discovered a passion for music and by the time he was 20, he had taught himself a range of instruments. Sensing that he was on the wrong path and fearing for his life, he knew he had to make a change so, armed with only his demo on cassette, he moved to Los Angeles where he eventually signed a million-dollar major record label deal. But Negrito’s soulful music was not made for those times. His debut album – released under his own name – went largely unnoticed. His con dence shattered, he pondered his next move. Before making any decisions, fate intervened. In 2000, Negrito suffered a near-fatal car accident. The event left him in a coma for three weeks and caused permanent damage to his playing hand. Determined, he fought hard, enduring hours of painful physical therapy. The birth of his son would provide the inspiration Negrito sought to return to music. Once again, he picked up his guitar. Encouraged by his childhood friend, co-founder/ co-owner of artist collective Blackball Universe, and Empire writer/ producer Malcolm Spellman, Negrito began exploring the roots of black music, ultimately winding back to the original source, the DNA of all American music: the blues. Rather than simply updating the delta blues, Negrito created something altogether new and unique, building bridges to the 21st century by weaving the original sounds of Lead Belly and Skip James with loops and samples of his own live instruments. Josh Ritter was named one of the Top 100 Songwriters Alive Today by Paste Magazine. Ritter has collaborated with Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), recently toured with Jason Isbell, is a proli c painter whose works adorn his album covers, and a New York Times bestselling author. He has appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” was featured on CBS News This Morning, and most recently performed on “Austin City Limits.” One of his biggest fans of his songwriting is novelist Stephen King. Selwyn Birchwood released “Pick Your Poison,” his forward-looking new CD on Alligator Records, in May 2017. On the album, Birchwood – along with his band-saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright and drummer Courtney “Big Love” Girlie – takes a major step forward, crafting visionary blues for a new generation of forward-looking fans. With his ery guitar and lap steel playing; his trailblazing, instantly memorable songs; and his gritty, unvarnished vocals, Birchwood is one of the most remarkable young stars in the blues. According to a biographical sketch provided by Alligator Records, Birchwood possesses a deep familiarity with blues tradition, which allows him to bust the genre wide open, bringing innovative new sounds, colors and textures. He delivers these with a distinctive style that blends a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma. Since the 2014 release “Don’t Call No Ambulance,” Birchwood’s Alligator Records debut, the powerhouse guitarist’s journey from playing small Florida clubs to headlining international festival stages can be described as phenomenal. “Don’t Call No Ambulance” received the Blues Music Award and Living Blues Critics’ Award for Best Debut Album Of 2014. Birchwood also walked away with the 2015 Blues Blast Rising Star Award. Over the last few years, Birchwood and his band have crisscrossed the United States and Europe repeatedly, delivering unforgettable live performances. Now, with “Pick Your Poison,” Birchwood, along with his band – saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright and drummer Courtney “Big Love” Girlie – is taking another major step forward, crafting visionary blues for a new generation of forward-looking fans. “There’s nothing I’d rather be doing than playing the blues,” Birchwood said. “And I try to convey that with every song and with every performance.” Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root also will be performing at Safety Harbor Songfest. According to a press release from Devious Planet, Glabicki’s solo project – aptly titled Uprooted featuring Michael Glabicki – will introduce new material at the event. In the 1990s, Glabicki had a vision he was driven to pursue. He left college, started a band despite the fact that he had no idea where the journey would deliver him. He spent two years developing this vision while learning the craft of songwriting. That vision grew into Rusted Root, the multiplatinum band out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Glabicki became one of music’s most unique voices. While Rusted Root is on hiatus, Glabicki has been devoting his time to creating an entirely new soundscape. His solo project promises to bring back parts of the Rusted Root of old, but will also include more percussion and female vocals. Collectively, the band hopes that the new material will deliver it to a special place. Glabicki will continue to play Rusted Root’s entire catalogue but promises to deliver fresh inspired versions, as well as introducing new and exciting music under the moniker of Uprooted. Uprooted will feature members from the most recent Rusted Root touring band, including electric guitarist Dirk Miller, drummer Zil Fessler, bassist Bobby Schneck and Daisie Ghosts Flower singing backups. The Safety Harbor SongFest is presented by the Safety Harbor Music and Art Center. SHAMc is a nonpro t 501(c)(3) organization.

8B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, March 29, 2018unravels the mystery, she must confront her own understanding of friendship, truth, and celebrity.‘Finding Your Feet’Genre: Comedy Cast: Imelda Staunton, Timothy Spall, Celia Imrie, Joanna Lumley and David Hayman Director: Richard Loncraine Rated: PG-13 When Lady Sandra Abbott (Imelda Staunton) discovers that her husband of 40 years (John Sessions) is having an affair with her best friend (Josie Lawrence) she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie). The two could not be more different – Sandra is a sh out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where gradually she starts nding her feet and romance as she meets her sister’s friends, Charlie (Timothy Spall), Jackie (Joanna Lumley) and Ted (David Hayman). This colorful, de ant and energetic group start to show Sandra that retirement is in fact only the beginning, and that divorce might just give her a whole new lease on love and life.‘The China Hustle’Genre: Documentary Cast: Dan David, Matthew Wiechert, Carson Block, James Chanos, Soren Aandahl and Maj Soueidnn Director: Jed Rothstein Rated: R In the midst of the 2008 market crash, investors on the fringes of the nancial world feverishly sought new alternatives for high-return investments in the global markets. With Chinese indexes demonstrating explosive growth, the country suddenly emerged as a gold rush opportunity with one caveat: U.S. investors were prohibited from investing directly into the country’s market. Makeshift solutions led to a market frenzy, until one investor discovered the massive web of fraud left in its wake. Jed Rothstein’s documentary rings the alarm on the need for transparency in an increasingly deregulated financial world by following those working to uncover the biggest heist you’ve never heard of.‘Lean on Pete’Genre: Drama Cast: Charlie Plummer, Travis Fimmel, Steve Buscemi and Chloe Sevigny Director: Andrew Haigh Rated: R Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer) arrives in Portland, Oregon, with his single father Ray (Travis Fimmel), both of them eager for a fresh start after a series of hard knocks. While Ray descends into personal turmoil, Charley nds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging quarter horse named Lean On Pete. The horse’s gruff owner Del Montgomery (Steve Buscemi) and his seasoned jockey Bonnie (Chlo Sevigny) help Charley ll the void of his father’s absence – until he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures to spare his new friend’s life. Charley and Pete head out into the great unknown, embarking on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a loving aunt Charley hasn’t seen in years. They experience adventure and heartbreak in equal measure, but never lose their irrepressible hope and resiliency as they pursue their dream of nding a place they can call home.‘The Last Movie Star’Genre: Drama Cast: Burt Reynolds, Ariel Winter and Chevy Chase Director: Adam Rifkin Rated: R Vic Edwards (Burt Reynolds) was the biggest star in Hollywood, a college football legend turned stunt double turned leading man. Now, in his 80s, he’s convinced by an old friend (Chevy Chase) to accept an invitation to receive a Lifetime Achievement award at a twobit lm festival in Nashville. The trip launches him on both a hilarious sh-out-of-water adventure and an unexpectedly poignant journey into his past. For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.
