The decision, made in a consensus vote during its March 27 workshop, followed a unanimous vote in favor of the bill, which would have banned kava, kratom, contraband bath salts and synthetic cannabinoid sales if passed, at its March 13 meeting. The second and nal vote on the bill was scheduled for April 10. Since that March 13 meeting, the city received numerous phone calls and emails from Seminole residents and those from outside the area in support of kava and kratom. During the March 27 meeting that preceded the workshop, several individuals spoke in favor of both substances. Chris Reynolds, an attorney living in unincorporated Seminole, told the council that the items included in the bill should not be lumped together. "Bath salts are certainly very different from the other two things on there, the kava and the kratom, and the kava and kratom are very different things from each other too" he said. He also pointed out that Earth Fare in Seminole City Center carries kava in pill form. "If we regulate that, it's going to have a signi cant impact on the city," he said. The council also heard more personal stories. Diane Fleming, a Seminole resident, said her daughter, who suffers from chronic fatigue and depression, among other ailments, drinks kratom several times a week "to help relieve her symptoms for a few hours." She added, "It is the only thing that has helped to keep her sanity."Brian Snyder, who lives outside the city, but has friends in Seminole, told the council that he recently began taking kratom following a cancer diagnosis. The cancer and pain medications were affecting his daily life at one point, he was taking 12 Vicodins a day to manage the pain. Since drinking kava and kratom six weeks ago, he has stopped taking pain pills and notices immense physical bene ts.Kathleen Johnson, who doesn't drink either kava or kratom, spoke about how local kava bars are committed to the community. "The community aspect of a kava bar is unbelievable. Everybody is so friendly. They're laidback. They're sober," she said. "The thing that's most important to me is that the kava bar owners are community Council nixes kava, kratom ban Overnight AdventurePhoto by KRISTEN MENDOZACub Scouts Sebastian Mendoza, left, and Ian White, right, met astronaut Joe Tanner on a recent trip to Kennedy Space Center. They were part of a group of Scouts and their families from Blessed Sacrament Church Pack #431 in Seminole that participated in NASA’s Overnight Adventure at the Kennedy Space Center. They did hands-on engineering projects, took several tours and slept under a Saturn V rocket. As a special treat, the group also met Tanner, who shared his inspiring journey and told them about the space program. He also discussed his experiences as a Scout, including earning the rank of Eagle Scout. By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Changes to how the Tourist Development Council will award elite event funding this year and in the future resulted in a prolonged conversation during the March 21 meeting. TDC and Pinellas County Commissioners approved the changes to the guidelines last year to take effect in the current year. Elite events that are approved for funding will receive 100 percent this year; however, the amount they can receive will be reduced to 75 percent the following year, and then 50 percent and they "sunset" out of the program the third year. Elite events are defined as those that benefit the county's tourism industry. The elite event program provides funding opportunities to events that qualify per a set of criteria that ensures a return of investment. Last year, 22 organizations applied for a share of the $1.5 million set aside for the program, and funding requests were in excess of $2.5 million, according to Tim Ramsberger, Visit St. Pete-Clearwater's chief operating of cer. According to the county's Tourist Development Plan, the elite event program can be funded up to $2 million; however, historically, the total has averaged $1.585 million, Ramsberger said. VSPC staff met with 12 applicants March 6 to answer questions about the new guiding principles, which are consistency, transparency, return on investment and sustainability. The deadline to apply for funding was March 30. A TDC committee will meet April 13 to review the applications and make Elite event fundingTDC has lengthy discussion on changes Field of dreamsEntrepreneur transforms Pinellas Park junkyard into soccer eldsPhoto courtesy of BRUCE TOFrom left, Sebastian Guenzatti, Tampa Bay Rowdies; Bruce Titan To, owner, BT Sports Academy; Leo Fernandes, Tampa Bay Rowdies; and Zachary Portillos, Tampa Bay Rowdies, at the BT Sports Academy in Pinellas Park before one of the daily pick-up soccer games. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersPINELLAS PARK When the recession hit in 2007, like many people across the country, Bruce To found himself in a nancial crunch. At the time, he owned a mortgage and title company, and the economic collapse forced him to shut his doors and lay off his staff. While out of work for the next year, he struggled to gure out his next move. During this time period, his two oldest sons, Nathan and Ethan, were 9and 7-years-old, respectively, and he began teaching them the game of soccer.To has had a passion for the game since he was a high school student and wanted to share this love with his sons. "We'd go to play in the parks," he said, "and my sons and I were chased off every field. If you weren't part of a club, they didn't want you playing there." This reminded him of his youth, when he was priced out of joining local club teams due to extravagant costs, he said. "We couldn't afford to play club soccer; even back in the 80s it cost money." That's when he made a vow to himself: "I said, one day I'm going to build my own soccer complex," something that would be accessible to players of all ages, nancial situations and skill levels. Of course, this idea got pushed to the backburner. He entered the workforce, again, working in construction and real estate development, buying, remodeling and ipping homes. But he never forgot this vow. In November, To finally realized this decade-old dream when he opened BT Sports Academy, 6351 49th St. N., in Pinellas Park.

2A Seminole Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018Thomas A. Michalski, 76, a longtime journalist and former editor of the Pinellas Park Beacon, died March 25. Michalski worked at Tampa Bay Newspapers from 2005-2010, helping launch the Pinellas Park Beacon, a weekly paper. Michalski covered everything from criminal activities to human interest stories as a journalist, working in New York City. "He was never afraid to jump right into a story and make sure the facts were correct," said his daughter, Dolores McGlone. "His second love was photography. We would go out every Sunday and photograph the community, talking to strangers and learning their stories," she said. Tom Germond, executive editor of TBN, said Michalski was a versatile newsman who relied on his instincts, experience and good sources to continually produce good stories. "Tom loved his job, and it showed," Germond said. "He had a great, sometimes offbeat, sense of humor and often told wacky stories of being a crime reporter decades ago in New York City." He won first place in a Florida Press Association contest for a picture he took of a girl asleep on her horse while waiting to compete in an equestrian event. Michalski also wrote columns for the newspapers, often about his life experiences. Michalski was born in Brooklyn, New York, on Sept. 13, 1941. He was a U.S. Air Force veteran, writing stories about the war. After many years of reporting, he started his own newspaper business catering to police and re ghters all over the country before moving to Vermont and then Florida. "To say growing up with my father was interesting is an understatement. He taught me if you work hard, stay true to yourself and your beliefs that your life will be full of happiness and surrounded by great people," she said. When he retired, Michalski and his wife, Pat, bought an RV and their rst trip was to Alaska. Every year Michalski was planning a trip as soon as he came back from a trip, traveling to almost every state. Based on those experiences, he wrote articles for travel magazines. Michalski is survived by his wife and traveling partner of 22 years, Pat; daughter, Dolores McGlone; stepdaughter, Kerry White; stepson, Kevin Bauer and step grandchildren, Steven and Hailey Bauer. Services will be held at Bay Pines National Cemetery at a date to be announced later.

Community 3A Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018people. They give back into their communities. It is local people investing into their community, providing a space for camaraderie, friendliness and a space for philanthropy." Catherine Enzor, an ambassador for the American Kratom Association, said she's lost a number of friends to opioid addiction and at one point was "a homeless, jobless addict who lost custody of her oldest daughter." By using kratom, she has been able to stay off drugs and has turned her life around, she said. She also knows many others who use kratom to keep sober. She added that it's a natural substance, "a whole ground leaf, absolutely nothing synthetic about it," that acts on opioid receptors in the brain the same receptors affected by cheese, coffee and chocolate. Gary Wilder, owner of Lizard Juice in Seminole, said he hears stories like these every day at his job. He has also seen the effects of kratom firsthand when his wife used it ve years ago while battling cancer to lessen the effects of the illness."I've never had a drink, never done drugs. I don't even eat red meat," he said. "This natural product changed my lifeThese stories that I hear from people I hear these every day by the hundreds in the stores, and I'm the most anti-drug person that you could meet in your life."He added, "This is the greatest exit from opioids that nature's ever given us. This is an incredible product." During the workshop, Mayor Leslie Waters said that since the March 13 meeting, councilors "all had learned a great deal about kava and kratom." Councilor Thomas Barnhorn asked why the council hadn't discussed the bill in a workshop prior to its rst reading. "I want to know why we are here tonight. This workshop should have happened way before we gave a directive, in my opinion, to our attorney to draft something" he said. "We didn't really ever have a discussion on what we wanted." During the council's annual retreat Jan. 7, the council brie y discussed regulation of kratom and kava, and directed City Attorney Jay Daigneault to draft an ordinance to regulate or ban the substances.Councilor Jim Quinn said that after the March 13 meeting, he researched both kratom and kava, and also asked the Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce for guidance. The PCSO told him it does "not think it is a priority to pass an ordinance banning it" after efforts by the Florida Legislature to ban them failed."I'm going to take the advice of the Pinellas County sheriff," Quinn said. Vice Mayor Roger Edelman also spoke of researching the substances by discussing it with local doctors and others who have experience with it."I'm a little on edge about some of the things I've read," he said. "I'd say there are some side effects to both of them. Are the side effects more important than the bene ts that either one of these two things will give the public?"Councilor Trish Springer questioned whether the city has the authority to ban "a product from a business that is operating in our city. "I'm a small business owner. So, I've got to look at it from both sides," she said. "Who are we to advise a business on what to sell and what not to sell when it's not illegal in this state or in this county at this time?" Councilor Chris Burke reminded council that the United States Food and Drug Administration has not approved kava or kratom for consumption. But he was hesitant to ban sales of either in the city. "We're not fortune tellers. We're not going to know the effect kava and kratom will have on you," he said. Councilor Bob Matthews said, "I'd like to see this whole thing go away." Waters said the debate "is an evolving issue," and she'd rather have a decision on the substances made at a state or federal level. Following their consensus vote, she said, "This ordinance is dead at this time."

It's easy to dwell and get wrapped up in the negative. I have always been taught, though from my parents to think of the positive and try to be the person with the glass half full instead of half empty. I know personally, when I look for good things, I do nd them, and it makes my day! I like to call good things that happen each day "lovelies." I recently started telling my daughters about the lovelies in my day and then ask them what kind of lovelies they had in their day. At rst, they didn't have any, but then all of a sudden they would give me a lovely for the day. It could be anything from I got a great grade on a paper to a friend said something nice to me today. The other day my older daughter, Randi, even called me when she was out somewhere to tell me she had a lovely. This was the rst time she called me about a lovely, so I knew this was going to be a good one and it was. She said, "Mom, one of Graci's teammates' moms made a special soup for Graci since she wasn't feeling well. Isn't that a great lovely?" I told her, "Yes, it was a wonderful lovely." I am so happy my girls are looking for what's going right in their day. We need to be on the lookout for good things happening. It's so easy to miss them if we aren't thinking positive. And kids need positive reinforcement, especially today when so much negative news makes the airwaves and social media. Sometimes my lovelies even come after the fact. Have you ever had something good turn out from something you thought was so bad? It has happened to me quite a bit. Do you remember that Garth Brooks song, "Unanswered Prayers" from 1990? The song is about a man who returns to high school and runs into his old ame, a girl he thought he was in love with until he met his wife, who he married and knows is the best person for him. It's kind of like that song. I have experienced things turning for good, when something bad happens or something I didn't want to happen. Now, I don't dwell on it and try and think what good will be coming from it. It keeps my mind positive and I don't get stressed like I used to. I know when you are dealing with something it's hard to do, try it and see if it works for you. Try looking for your lovelies in life and I know you'll start seeing a brighter tomorrow.

The plan is to bring the recommendations to the entire TDC on April 18 for approval. The next step is approval by the County Commission, which is scheduled in May. Ramsberger said the "intent" is to get through the approval process as quickly as possible, so staff can begin negotiations, especially for events that occur in the early fall. TDC member Phil Henderson, president and CEO of StarLite Cruises, started the discussion about the change in how elite events would be funded after this initial year of the new guidelines. He wanted clari cation that as funding was reduced and finally cut off, there would be the possibility of providing support for the events from another source. Ramsberger said it was staff's understanding that the new guidelines were set up to "graduate" organizations out of the program. Then staff would then negotiate one-on-one with organizations the same as they do with the Tampa Bay Rays, Rowdies and others. "The intent is to simplify the process, so staff can negotiate on a regular basis," he said. TDC member George Cretekos, Clearwater mayor, said there was confusion in the community. He said while the guidelines say organizations would no longer get "a direct subsidy" from the TDC after the third year, there were questions about what happened next. Ramsberger said after an organization became ineligible for funding from the program it would be considered for funding from the VSPC's regular budget. TDC Vice-Chairman Russ Kimball, general manager of Sheraton Sand Key Resort, questioned if an organization had to get to the point of receiving no funding before it was eligible to receive support from VSPC's operating budget. He wanted to know if they could get other funds as the amounts they were eligible for moved to 75 percent and 50 percent. Ramsberger said he didn't have the answer to that question, saying that what the TDC empowered staff to do outside the guidelines wasn't clear. "It's important for staff to know what its authority is and what the Council's desire is," he said. David Downing, VSPC president and CEO, said the intent of the program was to give organizations enough support for an event that it "eventually les on its own." He also talked about the dif culty involved with deciding value. For example, he said, staff knows the exact cost of a 30-second spot on a national event such as the Outback Bowl but it is harder to put a dollar gure on the value of an event such as Beach Day. He said the input from the TDC members was important when making those decisions. TDC member Charlie Gerdes, a St. Petersburg councilman, said he voted for the new guidelines with the understanding that as "sun setting" was occurring, staff would be able to make decisions on an ad hoc basis for certain things. "I thought that was going to occur while it was sun setting and you didn't have to get to zero rst," he said. "I felt good about that because I feel good about staff's and this organization's decision making in the other areas (Rowdies, Rays, etc.)." Tom Bogott, TradeWinds Island Resorts CEO, said it was "very important to have exibility and keep our mind open." "We ought not have black and white cutoffs where you drop to 75 percent and 50 percent and then zero before you can come back in and negotiate. In the long run, the goal is room nights and marketing, and if we let other things get in the way of that, we lose sight of what we're here for," he said. TDC member Jen Carlisle, director of Tourism and Marketing for Clearwater Marine Aquarium, reminded members that the elite event program was not a subsidy or a grant program but instead a way to help organizations with the cost of marketing and advertising events that bene ted tourism. She said it was important that all members use the same language when talking about the program. Cretekos asked if the TDC would reconsider the whole process. He said the new guidelines were approved not because of a desire to change the program but more due to pressure from Tallahassee for more accountability to make sure taxpayer money was spent on advertising and marketing not operating expenses. After more discussion, TDC Chair Ken Welch, who also chairs the County Commission, persuaded members to wait until after decisions were made on the rst round of funding before making any changes. Ramsberger suggested bringing the matter back in June or July. Suzette Porter is TBNÂ’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at TDC, from page 1A Photos courtesy of BRUCE TOBefore (below) and after (above) pictures of the BT Sports Academy. Entrepreneur Bruce To transformed a former Pinellas Park junkyard into a state-of-the-art soccer facility. AROUND SEMINOLE, from page 1A includes four outdoor soccer elds, where he hosts pick-up games every evening and also rents them to teams and organizations seeking training space. When he's done with construction, the facility will also include two indoor fields, a 4,000-square-foot fitness training center and gym, meeting rooms, and Hat Trick, a restaurant and sports bar. When he closed on the property, which operated as a junkyard for decades, in August, he knew he had a lot of work ahead of him. "If you were here, you'd see nothing but trailer parts, boats, cars, junk that piled up over 25 years," he said. "I still have people coming by looking for junk parts. They couldn't believe it. They thought they were lost. I tell them we magically made it disappear." With the help of volunteers, he installed the outdoor elds himself, using UltraBaseSystems panels, which minimize the risk of injury, he said, and hand stretched and stapled turf over them. The first night he opened, 20 people came out to play. The second night, 50 people came out for a series of pick-up games. By the third night, he was drawing 100 players. "It just snowballed from there," he said. Many nights, he draws professional players from the Tampa Bay Rowdies and local college players who join the informal games to the delight of fans and younger players. Though he first created the concept for BT Sports Academy 10 years ago, he recognized a long time ago when he was a teenager that soccer and other sports could change lives. Born in Vietnam, To and his family moved to Tampa in 1982 to escape the communist regime. His family owned a 40-feet-long wooden shing boat that they used to catch and transport shrimp and other seafood. "We also used it to plan our escape," he said. He, his mother, older brother and younger sister his father initially remained in Vietnam boarded the boat and attempted to escape under the guise of a shing trip. While they stayed on the deck, many of the 61 people who joined them hid below. They took a Malaysian sea route, which made them targets for Thai pirates, he said. "They were shermen, really, but saw a chance to rob us. It was more lucrative than shing," he said. They were robbed and attacked four times, he said. During one of these robberies, his sister was killed. "It was terrible," To said. "I still remember it vividly." After six nights at sea, they ran out of food and water. "We were just floating in pitch darkness, and we saw this bright light," he said. "Gradually, it became brighter and brighter." It was a Dutch tanker that had just been passing by and stopped to rescue them. For sixth months, they stayed in a refugee camp. Then, they spent another six months in the Philippines learning English. His family moved to Tampa in 1982, when To was 11, after being sponsored by a Lutheran Church in Temple Terrace. Eventually, they moved to South Tampa. Unable to afford playing club soccer, he would sometimes play in local parks with other kids. "I still remember a coach putting four cones together to make goals and letting us kick the ball around," he said. Then, as a sophomore at Plant High School, a friend suggested he try out for the soccer team despite having no formal training. "I was a lot (more) t, a lot lighter, so I was quick on my feet," he said. "That helped when you're playing." The sport shifted To's priorities and helped him learn responsibility and discipline. "It got me away from the bad crowd I was hanging out with at the time," he said. He played on the team for three years, serving as captain during his senior year. Though his grades weren't great, he was able to attend the University of South Florida. Though he wasn't recruited to join the university's soccer team, he tried out and was picked up as a walk-on player. He didn't get much playing time, he said. He also worked two jobs, at a bagel shop and as a hotel banquet server, in addition to attending classes and playing soccer. The hectic schedule began to affect his grades they dropped after he earned straight As his first semester so he quit the team. "I was riding the bench, not getting a lot of time, and my grades were declining," he said. "So I had to make a really tough decision." To continued to play pick-up games, though, and he also played intramural soccer at USF. The team he put together for intramurals even won that season. Since then, his love for the sport has never faltered. So, BT Sports Academy is "a dream come true," he said. He added, "Most people think I'm crazy for doing this. They didn't believe it. It's amazing to see this dream from 10 years ago be a reality."


County 5A Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018Pinellas Industrial Revenue Bonds to help fund CMA expansionCLEARWATER An Industrial Revenue Bond, through the Pinellas County Economic Development Authority, will assist the Clearwater Marine Aquarium as it completes its multi-year expansion by 2020. Working with Pinellas County Economic Development, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium applied for the $15.9 million Industrial Revenue Bond nancing in January 2018 and received approval on March 20. "Expanding our facility will not only enhance the guest experience but will also improve the quality of life for our non-releasable marine residents and increase care for rescued animals while they are hospitalized receiving life-saving treatments." said David Yates, president and CEO of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The Aquarium has frequently had to turn away animals for rehabilitation due to space limitations, and this project will allow it to rescue and rehabilitate many more animals and additional species. Plans for the expansion include ve new dolphin habitats, exhibit space, an elevated deck, the nal phase of a 378-space parking structure and a new building for guest and educational space. It will triple the rescued dolphin habitat and the increased volume of water will allow all non-releasable animals more room for exercise, play, and interaction with conspeci cs, and their team of Animal Care Specialists. CMA will be able to double the number of rehabilitation cases being treated at once. There will be more natural underwater rock formations, large viewing windows for both visitors and the animal care team, and the large medical habitat will be equipped with an elevating oor to minimize stress on the animal during medical checkups. Industrial Revenue Bonds are issued by local governments on behalf of quali ed manufacturers and 501(c)3 nonpro t organizations and offer tax-free, below-market-rate, long term financing of land, buildings and equipment. "The Industrial Revenue Bond program is a fantastic tool for expanding businesses and non-pro ts," states Cindy Margiotta, senior manager with Pinellas County Economic Development. "Using the IRB to help nance their capital costs will enable the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to rescue and rehabilitate many more animals and enhance the guests experience, which is good for the aquarium and Pinellas County." This IRB project was made possible through the work of partners including BB&T, Bryant Miller Olive, Moore & Van Allen and Macfarlane Ferguson & McMullen. In addition to the IRB, in 2017 CMA was awarded $26 million in funding through the Pinellas County Tourist Development Council's Capital Projects Funding Program for some of the renovations associated with the proposed nancing. The total project cost is $66 million, and CMA has received funding from both the state and the city of Clearwater for this unique project. The Aquarium's attendance has grown more than four-fold since 2012 thanks to the aquarium's most famous resident and movie star, Winter the Dolphin. The 2011 "Dolphin Tale" movie and its 2014 sequel tell the story of Winter, an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin who lost her tail after becoming entangled in a crab trap, but learned to swim without a tail and with a prosthetic tail. Winter and the story of her prosthetic tail have inspired millions to persevere through life's toughest obstacles. "Our mission has always been about rescue, rehabilitation and education, but it's exciting to think of the impact we can have on our community; as Clearwater Beach's number one tourist attraction, we're proud to call Pinellas County home and we'll be even more proud to say that we've helped to add jobs and revenue to the local economy," Yates said.

6A County Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018PSTA makes plans to enhance bus service By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersST. PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board members said yes March 21 to accepting a $234,121 grant from the Florida Department of Transportation for the operation of an extension on Route 100X. The money comes from FDOT's Urban Corridor Program. Funds can be used for operating costs related to providing public transit services that relieve congestion, improve roadway capacity and provide inter-county connectivity. PSTA will use the funds for operation of the new Route 100X extension service from Gateway Mall in St. Petersburg to downtown St. Petersburg and on to downtown Tampa. Plans call for starting the new route in June. Cassandra Borchers, PSTA's Chief Development Of cer, said the 100X is one of two express routes running from Pinellas County to Tampa. The 100X runs from St. Petersburg and crosses the Gandy Bridge to connect to Tampa. The 300X runs from the park and ride lot on Ulmerton Road in Largo and uses the Howard Frankland Bridge. Plans call for extending the 300X route to create a stop at Tampa International Airport. The two commuter routes operate Monday-Friday. The fare is $3. One of the concerns with extending the 100X Route and adding a stop at the Tampa airport is maintaining schedules so existing riders can make their connections. Borchers also told Board members about a new pilot project on I-275 that would allow buses to use the shoulders when traf c speeds drop below 35 mph. She said the project should help keep express routes timely. Plans call for that project to begin in 2019. FDOT needs to harden the shoulders to handle bus traf c and make other safety improvements. Another improvement in the planning stage is extending hours for the commuter routes and possibly including weekend service.Direct ConnectBorchers also reported on a planned expansion of PSTA's Direct Connect service, which allows riders to use Uber, United Taxi or a wheelchair access service to reach a bus stop or bus terminal. PSTA launched Direct Connect in February 2016 as a way to provide a " rst-mile/last-mile" option for riders in Pinellas Park and East Lake. In January 2017, the program expanded to include eight zones covering the entire county. Riders who stayed within their zone to begin or end a transit trip receive $5 off their ride. On April 2, PSTA expanded Direct Connect to include 16 additional stops. The new service eliminates zone restrictions and allows user to travel to and from a Direct Connect stop from anywhere in PSTA's service area. PSTA will continue to pay the rst $5 for a qualifying ride $25 for wheelchair transportation. For more information, call 727-540-1900.Park and rideCyndi Raskin-Schmitt, director of Communications and Marketing, provided a report on PSTA's park and ride service to large-crowd community events. She said the service helps alleviate traffic and parking congestion, as well as "generates good will" in the community. The service also provides an opportunity for non-riders to experience public transit. Recent events where PSTA provided the service include PRIDE events in St. Petersburg, Blue Jays Spring Training in Dunedin, spring break on Clearwater Beach, and Oldsmar Days and Gator National BMX in Oldsmar. Other business Board members voted to accept the audit report for scal year 2017. The audit rm of CliftonLarsonAllen gave PSTA an "unmodified opinion," stating that financial statements were "fairly presented." The auditors found no material weaknesses or signi cant de ciencies and questioned no costs associated with federal or state projects. CEO Brad Miller reported that ridership was down 2.9 percent in February and 7.1 percent year-to-date. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

PETERSBURG To recognize National Equal Pay Day and to raise awareness of pay equity and wage discrimination, Business and Professional Women/St. Petersburg-Pinellas will host its 15th annual Unhappy Hour Tuesday, April 10, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at The Arts Xchange, 515 22nd St. S., St. Petersburg. The date of the event coincides with the symbolic day that the average woman in the United States nally earns the same amount of pay that her male counterpart earned in the previous calendar year. According to data released by the U.S. Census Bureau in September 2017, the average woman makes just 80.5 cents for every dollar a man is paid, re ecting a gap that results in hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost wages over the course of a career. Therefore, if a man was paid $50,000 to perform his job from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, it will take a woman in the same position, on average, until April of the following year to earn the same amount. The public is invited to attend this free event. No RSVP is necessary. Light appetizers and a cash bar will be available. For more information, visit www.

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018WASHINGTON, D.C. What if they had negotiations to prevent a war and nobody came? That's the prospect staring down at President Donald Trump who says he wants to remake U.S. foreign policy, but doesn't have a fully staffed army of diplomats and national security gures to lead the charge. Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson two weeks ago and nominated CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him. Even if a speedy con rmation puts Pompeo in charge at Foggy Bottom in short order, he'll end up as the boss of a lot of empty seats. The American Foreign Service Association lists 188 ambassadorial positions, but fewer than 75 have been lled. The administration has failed to name individuals to ll the usual ambassador positions except for a number in the high 30s, according to the administration. The White House points the nger at the antics of Senate Democrats for slow-walking the con rmation of able administration picks. "A stunning 43 percent of the president's highly quali ed nominees are still waiting for con rmation in the Senate," Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said of the overall pool of uncon rmed nominees during a recent brie ng. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's "tactics have led to 102 fewer con rmations than the next closest administration." Observe the Democrats' treatment of Richard Grenell, whom Trump nominated to be ambassador to Germany in September. Grenell is clearly quali ed. A frequent Fox News contributor, he ably served as spokesman to four U.S. ambassadors to the United Nations from 2001 to 2008. In 2012, Grenell served as national security spokesman for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney which made him the rst openly gay spokesman for a GOP presidential hopeful before he resigned amid objections from social conservatives. His con rmation would be a win for gay Republicans, which one would expect to be embraced by Democrats who support gay rights. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee advanced Grenell in October. Then nothing happened. Republicans complained that the Democrats' use of secret "holds" prevented them from knowing which Senate Democrat stood in Grenell's way. It wasn't until March 22, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., asked the Senate to approve a oor vote on Grenell, that a name presented itself. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., effectively blocked the vote. Under Senate "cloture" rules, one objection can delay a con rmation vote until after 30 hours of debate. Those 30 hours of debate mean real work doesn't get done. Merkley explained he objected to Grenell's "lengthy track record of tweets attacking both prominent Democratic and prominent Republican women," as well as his tweets that were "dismissive of the Russian threat." Merkley also has criticized Trump for taking so long to nominate diplomats in troubled regions. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., also has faulted the Trump administration for slamming Democrats' delay tactics while the president neglected to nominate individuals for a large tranche of posts. To be sure, the Trump White House has been slower than other recent administrations to name individuals to key posts. Trump has yet to nominate an ambassador to South Korea, even as he prepares for negotiations with North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un, thanks to an invitation transmitted by Seoul diplomats. The process of vetting potential appointees and clearing would-be ambassadors with host nations has become so time-consuming that this administration cannot move as swiftly as past White Houses moved, an administration of cial maintained. Also, when senior level aides are frozen, the positions below them are held up as well. The bottom line, noted McConnell spokesman Don Stewart, is, "The Democrats have gone out of their way to block even the most highly quali ed nominees that the president has put forward and it has caused necessary delay for our foreign service and national security around the world." Put another way: Trump is taking the slow route because he's a nonpolitician trying to put other novices in the government. Senate Democrats are dragging con rmations precisely because they are political animals. Rules designed to make the Senate a more deliberative body have been perverted to make the Senate nastier and less effective. When President Barack Obama owned the Oval Office, Democrats complained about Republican obstructionism. Now they extol obstructionism as resistance. Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., sees a pattern in cloture votes on nominations in the Senate. There were 12 overall from 1949 to 1992, then nine in 2005, then more than 13 a year from 2009 to 2012. In 2017, there were 63 cloture votes. "We all know the direction of this body," Lankford told the Senate last year. When the Democrats next win the White House, "Republicans will say they did 63 to us, we'll do 120 to them." There is a way to put an end to Senate rule antics. In 2013, when Obama controlled the White House, Senate Republicans helped pass a resolution to reduce post-cloture debate time from 30 hours to eight hours for most executive branch nominees. Lankford wants the Senate to pass another such measure to stop the monkey wrenches through 2018, and let nominees rise with 51 votes or fall without them. They've made it too easy to get nothing done. Contact Debra J. Saunders at or 202-6627391. Follow @DebraJSaunders on Twitter. Once more, baseball has arrived. The major league season lasts six months. It begins when the last spring snowfall occurs, and ends when the rst autumn blizzard threatens. Following is an assortment of baseball facts, myths and memories. A baseball bat is round. A baseball is also round. Some physicists have said these two curvatures make it virtually impossible for a batter to strike an incoming pitch solidly enough to elude defensive players. Somehow this fact was hidden from Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and other hitters. Today's pitchers can propel a ball toward a batter at a speed of 95 miles an hour or more. This gives the batter about one-tenth of a second to decide one of several things: (1) To swing at the oncoming ball; (2) to let the baseball pass by; (3) to dive to the ground before the baseball strikes the batter's face, skull, torso or external reproductive organs. More home runs are hit late in the season than in the springtime. Summer heat lessens the number of molecules in space; this reduces the resistance that ying balls meet as they whiz toward the center field bleachers. Air density is lower in high-altitude cities such as Denver. Batters love to play there, against the Colorado Rockies. A home-plate umpire stands behind the catcher to shout "Ball!" or "Strike!" However, some umpires choose to stay silent if they believe the pitch was outside the strike zone. This ill-defined vertical zone covers the area somewhere between the batter's ankles and his Adam's apple, depending on which optometrist the umpire visits each year to see if his depth perception has changed. Years ago, the ball-or-strike decision was strictly up to the umpire. But as time passed many irate fans became apoplectic because they disagreed with the umpire's judgment. To reduce this danger, the baseball industry began using electronic measuring devices to show precisely where the baseball was when it pierced the strike zone. Or failed to do so. Another device (this one illegal) is used by some home teams. They place a powerful longdistance concealed camera within the center eld scoreboard. There, a photographer (usually a German named Siegenfoos) focuses his camera on the crotch of the visiting team's catcher. This is where the catcher wiggles nger signals to the pitcher to throw a fast ball, curve ball, screwball, spitball, knuckle-ball, slider or change-up. The catcher's signals are then swiftly relayed to the home team's coaches, who somehow inform the hitter what the next pitch will be. By then, however, the hitter has forgotten the signals, but still slaps a triple against the right- eld fence. When I was young, neatsfoot oil was used to soften baseball gloves and increase a elder's chances of scooping up ground balls and line drives. With time, glove manufacturers changed glove design until today many gloves resemble bushel baskets. This has caused the collapse of the neatsfoot oil market throughout much of America. Which professional sport has more action on the eld: baseball or football? Answer: baseball, which averages 25 minutes of ball-in-play per game. That's twice the 12 minutes in which football players are in action between the snap of the ball and the referee's whistle ending the play. With each year it seems that baseball games grow longer. One reason: TV commercials are added to the breaks between innings. This gives team owners more money with which to recruit players from Latin America and elsewhere. As with other professional sports, baseball adheres to the Golden Rule: the person with the gold makes the rules. If a hitter has a batting average of .400 or more, he is frequently awarded an intentional walk. In the past, he stood idly by as the pitcher threw four meaningless balls to the catcher. In 2017 the rules changed. Now the batter is sent immediately to first base. This shortens the average game by 115 seconds, which kills commercial time worth $145,000 per season. Our nation's multi-billion-dollar baseball stadiums often are nanced by taxpayers, i.e. you and me. This allows us and our elected representatives to answer the question "Would you rather have outstanding schools, highways and police forces, or watch a ball game?" Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@'s to all the local businessesWhat if we had to order most of our food over the Internet? That, to me, has all the appeal of bovine cud. OK, I'm exaggerating. I'm sure many people have had good experiences ordering food over the Internet. And I doubt the Internet will spell doom for local diners. But as for some other businesses? Such thoughts were whirling through my mind as I sat in a booth during my lunch hour at one of my favorite pizzerias, watching sports news on television, taking in the aromas and staring out the window. Busy place. And it was good to be back, after several weeks. A slice and a drink, $5.73. Can't beat it. A piece of Americana, in a broad sense. "Your pizza is great as usual," I told the server, who smiled and thanked me. Restaurants are a staple of local businesses. And local businesses help build and define communities. Of course, local businesses give people jobs and pay a variety of local taxes. But they do much more than that. Can't recall how many articles I've written or read in my career about a business owner going to great lengths, either through nancial support or manpower, to assist others in need. Donating a portion of their sales to charities. Helping a child who has cancer, a youth softball team, a civic club project, a toy drive, a food pantry, the homeless, a museum. They work with foundations, help beautify their communities, participate in parades, organize festivals, trim trees, pick up cigarette butts individually or through their chambers of commerces and merchants associations. Local business owners sometimes serve as elected of cials and as members of government advisory boards. They know that taking criticism they may receive goes with the territory. And, yes, some business owners and their associates provide newspaper tips when they feel that something is afoul with their local governments. You can never have enough watchdogs. I also recognize that companies thrive on the Internet, such as Amazon, support good causes. Nevertheless, I prefer to shop local. When I listen to friends boast about the great deals they got buying something over the Internet, I'll smile, but sometimes secretly cringe. Try this on: About 12 years ago in a city where I formerly worked as an editor, a woman bragged about how she was able to do all her Christmas shopping over the internet. She was the wife of the chamber of commerce president. Hope somebody sent her an appropriate holiday gift via the Internet like a package of chocolate-covered lumps of coal. Sure, occasionally I will buy merchandise over the Internet, such as jeans in waist sizes I can't nd locally, but only after I've combed the department stores for such items for weeks. And I recognize Internet sales also create jobs. But enough is enough. I refuse to buy beer online. That to me would be the ultimate sacrilege, considering the great varieties of brew available locally. Yeah, I know. I wrote a column a few weeks ago about how I acquired many play sets through the Sears Toy Catalogue. But my parents also bought a lot of fun stuff for my family at shopping centers. When I was a kid growing up in Ocala in the 1960s, my brother and I used to walk to the Toy King in a plaza along a main thoroughfare in town. Models, games, baseball cards, kites, comic books you name it the toy store had it all and was the closest thing to the North Pole. Wellworth the long trek from our house. Nostalgia taking control, I made a phone call while writing this piece to what's now known as "The Vintage Toy King." Same place and location in Ocala. Doing well, as best as I can determine, despite the Internet competition. Some of the best vacations I have taken is traveling in Virginia, moseying in small picturesque towns brimming with antique shops and looking through the storefront windows at merchandise that aunt the colors of Halloween. Maybe I'll buy something, maybe I won't. Reading the inscriptions on monuments. Having a cold beer at a local tavern. Traipsing through a small park. Enjoying areas rich with history and community pride and not spending one minute on the damned Internet via laptop or other kinds of magic boxes. It's good to see the local merchants hanging in there everywhere you go and taking pride in their success. And I expect our newspapers to be around for years and years, too, thanks to the support of the community. Yup, this is a plug for local businesses of all kinds and sizes, from the boutique shops, to the barber the diner, the hospital, the real estate office, insurance agent, the pet store. Community-minded. Bricks and mortar. Grounded. When I say local businesses, I include many national chain stores, since they too, are involved in their communities in countless ways, creating jobs and supporting other businesses. Curiosity is getting the best of me. I'm going to make a road trip to Ocala one of these weekends. Would love to hear about the Vintage Toy King's secrets of survival in the age of the Internet. I'll de nitely buy something there, just to say thanks. Tom Germond is editor of the Belleair Bee.

Police 13A Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018 Police beat76-year-old dies after single-car crash in SeminoleSEMINOLE A 76-year-old Seminole man died at a local hospital after crashing his car about 4:17 p.m. March 30 on Park Boulevard just west of Ridge Road in Seminole. Deputies assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team say James Moriarty was driving his 2006 Nissan Sentra eastbound on Park Boulevard when he drove over the raised concrete median barrier and into the oncoming westbound lanes of Park Boulevard. The Nissan continued moving up on the curb and sidewalk along the right westbound lane of Park Boulevard where it then drove through a private residential yard before striking a mailbox. The car then moved through a second yard and struck two fences. Deputies say after the Nissan struck a third fence, it collided with a large tree head-on causing the back end of the vehicle to spin counter-clockwise, colliding with an unoccupied Ford F-150 that was parked in a driveway of a private residence at 11635 Park Blvd. Paramedics responded and transported Moriarty to Largo Medical Center Main Campus where he was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. Investigators say Moriarty possibly suffered a medical episode, which may have led to the crash. Speed was a factor in this crash.Three adults, two juveniles arrested for strong-arm robberySEMINOLE Pinellas County Sheriff'sa detectives arrested three adults and two teenagers for forcefully stealing a gold necklace and $10 from a 17-yearold in Seminole. All ve were charged with one count of strong-arm robbery. The robbery occurred about 5:30 p.m. March 17 at Boca Millennium Park, 12410 74th Ave. N., Seminole.

Once the victim arrived, Jordan Hale Wilson, 19, Trevor Conlyn Ahern, 19, and Dakota Mohr, 18, all of Seminole, and an unidentified 15-year-old male came up to the victim from behind and began physically beating him, forcefully taking a gold chain, medallion and $10. All ve suspects ed the scene. Detectives say the victim suffered serious injuries including a fracture to his facial area, multiple lacerations and multiple bruises to his face and body. Detectives were able to positively identify all ve suspects and recovered the stolen necklace and medallion. Wilson, Ahern and Mohr were arrested and booked into the Pinellas County Jail.

PETERSBURG Value Environmental Services Inc. of Largo and Preferred Drilling Solutions of Pinellas Park recently donated an environmental test well to St. Petersburg College. The test well will be used to monitor groundwater at the SPC Bay Pines STEM Center and provide a training tool for environmental science students. The well installation process was video-documented for later use in the classroom. Multiple drilling techniques were utilized to show students a variety of commonly used drilling processes. These local businesses donated the time, labor and equipment for the test well so the limited available funds could be spent instead on equipment to train students in sampling and equipment techniques. The Florida Environmental industry relies heavily upon the availability of quali ed environmental science graduates. Field training opportunities are rare; this test well will greatly add to the practical capabilities of graduates.

Tickets start at $36.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit In addition to being a multi-instrumentalist, Culbertson is a songwriter and producer known for his distinct brand of genre-crossing contemporary jazz, R&B and funk. Mining the urban sounds of musically-rich Chicago, he began his musical studies on piano at age 8 and quickly picked up several other instruments by the time he was 12, including drums, trombone, bass and euphonium. Inspired by iconic 1970s R&B-jazz-pop artists such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Chicago, David Sanborn and others, Culbertson started composing original music for his seventh-grade piano recital. He hasn’t stopped writing since then, amassing 30 Billboard No. 1 singles and a deep catalogue of 18 albums, most of which have topped the Billboard contemporary jazz charts. Having worked and performed with countless industry all-stars such as Michael McDonald, Chris Botti, Ledisi, Barry Manilow, Herb Alpert, Natalie Cole, Maurice White, Chuck Brown and Bootsy Collins, Culbertson has won numerous awards and accolades. Additionally, he has received nominations from the NAACP Image Awards and Soul Train Awards. In 2012, he founded the Napa Valley Jazz Getaway, a ourishing wine, music and lifestyle experience for which he also serves as artistic director. With love, romance and his recent 12th wedding anniversary serving as his inspiration, Culbertson crafted 13 new songs that released as “Colors of Love,” his new album, on Feb. 14. The seduction began with the rst single, the amorous title track, which is a sensual R&B groove illuminated by lyrical acoustic piano melodies typical of the collection’s contents. The current three-month U.S. concert tour brings “Colors of Love” to life in a vivid theatrical production, incorporating video elements in a major way.

Entertainment 3B Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018CLEARWATER – Two-time Grammy Award-winner Jason Isbell and his band The 400 Unit will perform Tuesday, April 17, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $32.50. Call 727791-7400 or visit Isbell and his band are currently touring in support of their highly acclaimed album “The Nashville Sound,” released in June 2017 on Southeastern Records. The album debuted at No. 4 on the U.S. Billboard 200. As of February 2018, the album had sold 128,000 copies. The album earned Isbell his rst CMA Award nomination. It was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2017 ceremony. “The Nashville Sound” went on to win the Best Americana Album at the 2018 Grammy Awards. “If We Were Vampires,” one of the tracks on the album, won the Grammy for Best American Roots Song. As with Isbell’s 2013 breakthrough album “Southeastern” and his double-Grammy-winning 2015 follow-up “Something More Than Free,” “The Nashville Sound” was produced by Dave Cobb. In a biography provided by All Eyes Media, Isbell says that he and Cobb created a simple litmus test for the decisions they made in the two weeks they spent at RCA Studios: They only made sonic moves that their heroes from back in the day could’ve made, but simply never did. It’s a shrewd approach – an honest way to keep the wiz-bang of modern recording technology at arm’s length, while also leaving the old bag of retro rock ’n’ roll tricks un-rummaged. Lyrically, “The Nashville Sound” is timely. Musically, it is timeless. The album isn’t credited to Isbell alone. For the rst time since 2011’s “Here We Rest,” Isbell’s band, The 400 Unit, gets title billing. “Even when I was writing, I could always hear the band’s stamp on the nished product,” Jason said. “These songs needed more collaboration on the arrangements to make them work, and I felt like the band deserved it after the way they played.” Given Cobb’s strict insistence on cutting songs live with no demos or rehearsals, listeners can easily imagine how the brilliantly raw performances on the record will translate to the stage when the band takes these new songs out on the road. According to All Eyes Media, there’s nothing like a 400 Unit show. The band smokes, but that’s only part of the magic. Isbell’s fans are among music’s most ardent. They listen to these songs for months and months on their own, and that momentum rolls them right up to the doors at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, or the Beacon Theatre in New York or the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta – or Ruth Eckerd Hall, for that matter. When the band kicks in, they are ecstatic. It’s a rock ’n’ roll show that feels like fellowship. Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit features Isbell (guitar), Derry deBorja (keyboards), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass), Amanda Shires ( ddle) and Sadler Vaden (guitar). Years of touring and packing venues in the U.S. and abroad has galvanized this group of fantastic musicians and made them one of the strongest acts on the road today. For more information and a complete list of tour dates, please visit: The legendary Richard Thompson will open the show. Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, Thompson is also one of the world’s most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. He has received lifetime achievement awards for songwriting from the Americana Music Association in Nashville as well as Britain’s BBC Awards. In 2011, Thompson received an Order of the British Empire personally bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 1960s, Thompson and his mates virtually invented British folk rock.

4B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018 By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersDUNEDIN – Don your kilt and sporran and prepare for a full day’s worth of piping, drumming, dancing and athletic competition at the 52nd annual Dunedin Highland Games, set for Saturday, April 7, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., in Highlander Park, 1920 Pinehurst Road, Dunedin. Tickets are $15 in advance through Eventbrite and $18 at the gate. Children age 12 and younger are admitted for free with an adult. VIP tickets also are available through Eventbrite. VIP tickets are $75 for adults and $10 for children. Parking will be available at Dunedin High School, 1651 Pinehurst Road, Dunedin. A shuttle bus will be running between the parking lot and the festival grounds. For information, visit The event is expected to attract more than 1,000 competitors vying for awards in Scottish heavy athletics as well as highland dancing, solo piping and drumming and pipe bands. There also will be a 5K Highland Trail Run. A full schedule of entertainment will be presented on two stages. Event headliners include Off Kilter and Seven Nations. In addition, there will be a Kidz Zone with mini-games for children, a selection of Celtic foods and shopping and craft and domestic beers, wine and cider. Attendees will have an opportunity to visit more than 30 Scottish clans and society to research their heritage. Overseeing this massive annual endeavor is the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation – formerly the Dunedin Highland Games & Festival Committee. The foundation works to support the Scottish heritage and culture of Dunedin through the visual and performance arts of dancing, piping, drumming and athletics. The event was created more than half a century ago to raise funds to support the three bands of Dunedin: The City of Dunedin Pipe Band, The Dunedin High School Scottish Highlander Band, and The Dunedin Highland Middle School Band. Joan McHale currently serves as executive director of the foundation alongside husband Alan McHale, current foundation president. The two rst became involved in Dunedin Highland Games in 2008 when they volunteered to help the committee. “We are both Scottish and attended games and live in Dunedin,” Joan said. “We have two Scottish dogs – a West Highland Terrier and a Scottish Terrier. It seemed like a good t.” Since 2008, the two have gone from volunteering to taking on a variety of responsibilities at the foundation. “I’ve done VIP, treasurer, athletics, merchandise, and marketing/advertising,” Joan said. “Alan started out as a eld marshal and became president, after the passing of long-time President Sandy Keith, who had been involved with the Dunedin Highland Games approximately 30 years.” The McHales have watched the Dunedin Highland Games evolve over the last 10 years. “It is in the same location, but it has taken over the entire Highlander Park in size,” Joan said. “All the events are bigger and now have 1,000 participants: highland dancing, athletics, pipes and drumming, and a 5K. We’ve added a VIP area.” She said that a number of new events have been created to extend the celebration. These include a pipe band parade down Main Street the night before the games; a Ceilidh, a Scottish party with live music, following the parade in downtown; the Pipers on the Pier event at Weaver Park, kicking off Highland Games Week; and a 5K Highland Trail Run through the city’s Hammock Park. “A race is traditional in highland games in Scotland,” Joan said. “It’s all to bring more exposure and crowds to the games, and people love it.” Organizers are clearly on the right track. Attendance has doubled from 3,000 to 6,000. “We’ve branded a logo and have grown through more advertising – radio, print, billboards and social media,” Joan said. “We have raised more money, and therefore have donated more money back into the programs. Over the year 2017 we gave $95,000 to piping, drumming, dancing, and awards at our events.” Despite its phenomenal growth and the addition of new festival elements, Joan said both the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation and the Dunedin Highland Games have held true to the original vision. “Our mission was always to raise funds to assist the Scottish music programs in Dunedin,” she explained. “With six pipe bands in Dunedin and a world-class Pipe Major, Iain Donaldson, leading the charge, we reinforce that mission all the time. Most of the people on our board have personal history in Dunedin’s Scottish programs either by their children, or themselves growing up in the program. The Scottish roots run deep in Dunedin, and our members are passionate about keeping these traditions alive. It reaches three generations in some families with grandchildren piping, drumming or dancing.” According to Joan, 18 pipe bands will be competing at the festival this year – that’s the largest turnout in the event’s history. The bands come from communities all over Florida and beyond, including competitors from Maryland, Texas and Georgia. In the Scottish heavy athletics events, festival organizers will introduce a new novice category. Following is a schedule of events at the 52nd Dunedin Highland Games:  8:30 a.m. – Competitions begin (highland dancing, piping/drumming, athletics)  9 a.m. – Highland Trail Run begins; Beer keg lift (also 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m.)  11:45 a.m. – Opening ceremonies  Noon – Massed highland ing  12:10 p.m. – Parade of Clans  12:30 p.m. – National anthems, introductions and welcome  1 p.m. – Competitions resume; Brayzen Heads (main stage); Celtic Conundrum (traditional stage)  1:30 p.m. – K-9 demonstration (Kidz Zone)  1:45 p.m. – Drake Irish Dancers (main)  2 p.m. – Pappy with a Hatchet (main stage); Brayzen Heads (traditional stage)  3 p.m. – Celtic Conundrum (traditional stage)  3:15 p.m. – Drake Irish Dancers (main stage)  3:30 p.m. – Off Kilter (main stage); Super caber contest  4 p.m. – Pappy with a Hatchet (traditional stage); Dunedin Stone contest  5 p.m. – Closing ceremonies; Massed bands, awards ceremony and closing march  6 p.m. – Winning pipe band celebratory march to beer tent  6:30 p.m. – Seven Nations (main stage)  8 p.m. – Games close  9 p.m. – Shuttle bus endsMusic lineupFormed on the idea of playing music as culturally diverse as the crew one might nd on a ship, a dock, or a pub by the port, Celtic Conundrum brings songs and instruments that came with them from the taverns of their home countries. The band has been known to play Celtic tunes and sea shanties as well as songs from Ireland, Scotland, and England, and the great colonies of America and Australia. According to the band’s website, Pappy with a Hatchet is an acoustic Irish-American band based out of St. Louis, Missouri. Featuring four regular house musicians from world-renowned Irish music bar John D. McGurk’s in St. Louis, Pappy presents a creative approach to playing traditional Irish music that incorporates a variety of in uences from jazz, bluegrass and other American musical traditions. Members are Kevin Buckley on ddle, guitar and vocals; Ian Walsh on ddle, mandolin and vocals; Alan Murray on guitar, bouzouki and vocals; and Dan Lowery on ute, guitar, and vocals. Off Kilter – a high-energy, progressive Celtic band that became a staple at Walt Disney World – blends many hard-driving musical styles, bringing a new twist to Celtic music. For 20 years, Off Kilter performed regularly at Epcot’s Canadian Pavilion, harvesting a loyal fan base with their grab-bag of “rocked-up” traditional Celtic tunes, familiar rock and roll with a Celtic twist and original material that incorporates the sound of bagpipes. The band was formed in 1997. Members include Jamie Holton, piper and vocalist; Mark Weldon, bass player and singer; Scott Zymowski, drummer; Randy Holbrook, lead guitar; and Jason Thomas, ddle. Seven Nations is known for a passionate, tender and rollicking style that encompasses everything from roots and traditional folk to dance and fusion-rock. The band is also famous for a relentless touring schedule, sometimes spending more than 300 days a year on the road. Touring full-time since 1994, Seven Nations has performed in Europe, Canada, Puerto Rico, and virtually every state in the United States. They performed an entire show with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra at the Dublin Irish Festival as well as performing at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, a New Year’s Eve concert at Scotland’s Royal Mile and at the New York City Marathon. The band’s most recent album, “Tales from the Eighth Nation,” was released in April 2014. “Seven Nations – the name refers to the seven original Celtic nations of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Galecia, Isle of Man, and Brittany – ofcially began in 1993 in New York City with a standard lineup of drums, guitars and bass,” said lead singer and guitarist Kirk McLeod on the band’s website. “We soon introduced bagpipes into the show, and over time the number of songs utilizing bagpipes grew until it became obvious that they were integral to our emerging sound.” It’s been two decades and over a million miles logged on the road for Seven Nations since their inception and they’re just getting started. With a highly anticipated return to their roots of festivals, touring and recording, this indie band is poised for another amazing decade. “Most of the band members grew up playing Celtic music, and we’ve been performing original compositions since we began,” McLeod said. “Our instrumentation, and bagpipes and ddle mostly, give us a distinctive sound and that’s what makes us different.”Dunedin Highland Games WeekDUNEDIN – The 52nd annual Dunedin Highland Games is the culmination of a series of events that together comprise the Dunedin Highland Games Week. In the days leading up to the annual festival, the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation will present a number of separate events to set the stage and get the party started. Kicking off the Dunedin Highland Games Week will be the Hail to the Chieftain event on Saturday, March 31, 5 p.m., at Weaver Park, 2750 Bayshore Blvd., Dunedin. According to Joan McHale, executive director of the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation, Pat Snair, a Dunedin chiropractor, has been selected as the Honorary Chieftain of the Games. Snair has a special family connection to the Dunedin Highland Games: Her father brought the very rst games to Dunedin in 1967. Pat was a pipe major at Dunedin High School and a member of the very rst City of Dunedin Pipe Band. For the March 31 event, she will arrive in style. “The chieftain will be brought by outrigger canoe to the pier and pipers will march her off,” Joan said. The chieftain will be accompanied by Bonnie Lass Kate Breaux and Bonnie Lad Kurt Kemerer. Both Kate, a piper, and Kurt, a drummer, are high school freshmen who were chosen by Iain Donaldson, city piping director, for their leadership and participation in the program. “We’ll have some highland dancing from the Isle of Skye Highland Dancers, and a free concert by local cover band, The Shakes Society,” Joan added. Vendors will be on site and beer will be available for purchase. The Stuart Liddell Recital will take place Friday, April 6, 2:30 p.m., at the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation Hall, 1134 Douglas Ave., Dunedin. Liddell, pipe major of Inverary & District Pipe Band, 2017 Grade 1 World Champions, will perform. Admission is $15. The fourth annual Pipe Band March also will take place Friday, April 6, beginning at 6:30 p.m., starting out at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Of ce parking lot on Louden Avenue. The parade route will head north to Main Street and then west down Main to Broadway. The parade will next turn south on Broadway to Scotland Street, back east to Douglas Avenue and will end at Pioneer Park. The parade will be a spectacle of color of tartans and sounds of the pipes. Also marching will be highland dancers, Scottish clans and societies. Traveling the route in classic cars will be the Dunedin mayor and commissioners, chieftain, Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation president, Scottish American Society president, and this year’s Bonnie Lass and Bonnie Lad. Immediately following the parade will be the Ceilidh in Pioneer Park, 420 Main St. The Scottish party will run from 7 to 10 p.m. Entertainment will include performances by Brayzen Heads and Off Kilter. The event will include vendors and beer will be available for purchase. Attendees may bring a lawn chair. The event is free. All this will lead up to the 52nd annual Dunedin Highland Games, set for Saturday, April 7, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., in Highlander Park, 1920 Pinehurst Road, Dunedin.

10B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, April 5, 2018‘Spinning Man’Genre: Thriller and mystery Cast: Guy Pearce, Pierce Brosnan, Minnie Driver, Jamie Kennedy, Clark Gregg, Odeya Rush, Alexandra Shipp and Freya Tingley Director: Simon Kaijser Rated: R Evan Birch (Guy Pearce) is a family man and esteemed professor at a distinguished college, where his charm and reputation have made his philosophy class very popular. When a female student named Hannah goes missing, Evan’s previous off-campus dalliances make his wife (Minnie Driver) question his alibi. Gruff police detective Malloy (Pierce Brosnan) has even more reason to be suspicious when crucial evidence makes Evan the prime suspect in Hannah’s disappearance. Suddenly, the questions Evan faces aren’t merely academic – they’re a matter of life or death.‘You Were Never Really Here’Genre: Thriller Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Judith Roberts, Ekaterina Samsonov, John Doman, Alex Manettev, Dante Pereira-Olsen and Alessandro Nivola Director: Lynne Ramsay Rated: R A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.‘The Miracle Season’Genre: Drama and sports Cast: Helen Hunt, William Hurt, Danika Yarosh, Erin Moriarty Director: Sean McNamara Rated: PG In the inspiring true-life drama “The Miracle Season,” one girl’s story leads her team and town to victory. In Iowa, the girls’ volleyball team, from Iowa City West High School, brings their community together, and Caroline Found – or “Line,” as she nicknamed herself – is the inspiration for their 2011 season. The 17-yearold Line (Danika Yarosh) is vivacious and life-loving, compassionate and caring, making sure kids don’t eat alone in the lunchroom and that everyone gives their all at volleyball games. Line is her team’s captain, helping coach Kathy “Coach Brez” Bresnahan (Oscar winner Helen Hunt) rally everyone together to repeat their championship win from 2010. Then, in August 2011, as her senior year is about to begin, Line is in an accident that leaves her team, her school, and her father, Ernie (Oscar winner William Hurt), heartbroken by their loss. Two weeks later, Ellyn, Line’s mother, succumbs to cancer and the grief for all seems too much to handle. But when the team starts to wonder if they can move forward, Ernie’s strength and faith spur them on, and Caroline’s best friend, Kelley Fliehler (Erin Moriarty), won’t let down the girl she loved since childhood. Kelley encourages her classmates, Coach Brez, and even the opponents the City West team faces across the net to “Live Like Line” – to never back down, never stop smiling, and always give 100 percent, even when the odds seem impossible. There were 90 composition contest entries from 16 different countries.

Fullerton will visit the gallery for Dunedin 2nd Friday event, set for Friday, April 13, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. She will bring with her additional paintings for the evening. Fullerton paints with watercolor on Yupo, a slick non-porous surface made of polypropylene. The watercolor paint sits on the surface resulting in intense pigment that can move while wet. She starts with a transparent layer of colors and sometimes adds texture with various materials and tools. Allowing the paint to dry she can carefully add layers of paint. Final layers may use a higher pigmented paint like gouache and sometimes a touch of acrylic. When complete the painting is xed with a UV-resistant clear coat. The results look very different from traditional watercolors. A native Floridian, Fullerton began her art career as an artist at Walt Disney World and Sea World when she was a teenager. After a 20-year career as a professional geologist she returned to her rst calling creating art. She is a signature member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina and the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society. She is also a member of the National Watercolor Society, Florida Watercolor Society, and Southern Watercolor Society. Her art has been juried into shows and has won awards.
