Lexi, who was born with Goldenhar Syndrome, a rare congenital condition characterized by abnormal development of the eye, ear and spine, has had more than 20 surgeries in her life. By LOGAN MOSBY Tampa Bay NewspapersIf you're a betting man, don't lay odds against Lexi Banks. She's been beating them all of her life. "She's one tough cookie," said Tampa Bay-based surgeon Dr. Ernesto Ruas, who has known Banks most of her life. And what a life it's been. Born with Goldenhar Syndrome, a rare congenital condition characterized by abnormal development of the eye, ear and spine, Lexi has more than 20 surgeries under her belt, with her biggest yet slated for next week at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg. And despite all the 17-year-old Seminole resident has faced in her young life, she's always kept a smile on her face. And now that smile will become a whole lot brighter, thanks to Ruas and his team. Lexi, who was born with no right ear and no mandible on the right side of her face, will undergo next week the second of two surgeries to realign the structure of her face, while creating a brand new jawbone grafted from bone harvested from her own leg. And although the surgery is expected to take around 10 hours, for Lexi, it's been a lifetime in the making. On the afternoon of Jan. 22, Lexi woke up in her hospital room, drowsy, in pain and nauseated but she was happy.

By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Nearly two years ago, Christopher Andrew Leinonen was one of 49 people killed in the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. Leinonen, who went by "Drew" as a teenager, was a 2003 Seminole High School graduate who also founded the school's Gay-Straight Alliance. In 2002, the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg awarded him the Anne Frank Humanitarian Award for his work with Seminole's GSA. The GSA honored his legacy Feb. 9, which was Unity Day on campus, with the dedication of a memorial sculpture created in his honor. The bronze sculpture of two clasped hands was made by Kendra Frorup, head of the sculpture department at the University of Tampa. "When Kendra met with my husband and I early on to discuss our ideas for this memorial, we decided that we didn't want just a simple stone and plaque, but we wanted to honor Drew as an artist," said Elizabeth Crawley, the SHS GSA sponsor. "The idea of clasped hands was tossed around early on because we thought the image of hands held together in love and friendship (as opposed to the destruction that can occur at our hands) was a powerful one. When we use our hands to lift each other up instead of tearing each other down, we can achieve great things. Hand in hand, we heal." Leinonen's friends Shawn Chaudry and By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO The Seminole High School Warhawk band will host its rst annual golf event Monday, April 23, at The Bayou Club, 7979 Bayou Club Blvd. The band has organized the event following the loss of one of its annual fundraisers, said band director Gerard Madrinan. They were forced to cancel its annual Seminole Visual Spectacular, a winter guard and indoor percussion competition, after the Florida Federation of Colorguards Circuit determined the SHS gym was too small for such an event. "In an age of accountability, the FFCC is looking out for re marshal regulations and safety issues," he said. This left the SHS band scrambling as it faced a budget shortfall with the cancellation of the SVS. Typically, the annual budget for the Warhawk band program including symphonic, marching, indoor percussion, jazz and color guard is around $400,000 each year, said Timothy Litteral, vice president of the Seminole Warhawk Band Boosters. So Madrinan teamed up with the Boosters to organize the rst of what they hope will become an annual charity event for the band. "These are an amazing group of hard-working kids and we want to do what we can to support them," Litteral said. The day includes a hole-in-one contest, with a chance to win $10,000 or a vacation package; closest to the pin, longest drive and putting contests; an all-American cookout buffet and awards ceremony; silent auction, raf e and 50/50 raf e; and on-course beverages. Standard cost for a single golfer is $100 and $400 for a foursome. The Super Package, which includes a Super Ticket, for a single golfer is $130 and $520 for a foursome. A Super Ticket includes four hole-in-one shots, two raf e tickets, and entry to the closest to the pin, longest drive and putting contests. There are also various sponsor packages available for local businesses, organizations and individuals. Golfers can register online at www. For more information, email or call 727-224-8421.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018 Photos courtesy of the SEMINOLE CHAMBER OF COMMERCEThe Seminole Chamber of Commerce’s March 17 Seminile Stampede 5K and 1-mile Fun Run drew the annual event’s “best attendance yet” with 200 participants, said Donna Phelps-Leynse, assistant director. The Male Overall Winner was Josh Irwin of Glen Llen, Virginia, and the Female Overall Winner was Donna Nesslar of Largo. Above, runners prepare for the start of the race.Seminole Stampede A group from Realty Executives participated in the Seminole Stampede. Pictured from left, Mike Smith, Lisa Grange and broker Amy Hartman.She had just undergone the rst of two surgeries that will create a right mandible for her face. Ruas, who specializes in craniofacial surgery, had just realigned the top portion of Lexi's jaw, which set the stage for the rest of the work to be done. While not the most painful of her surgeries, Lexi said it was one of the more frustrating. "I didn't have much pain but there was a lot of swelling and I couldn't eat anything," Lexi said, adding that she lost 10 pounds following the surgery. Lexi's mother, Kim Cashman, was by her side the whole time, and watched as she struggled in those initial days. "It's hard to see her like that," Cashman said. "Normally she bounces right back, so I know she really wasn't feeling well." But Lexi has always been a ghter. By day two, the petite high school junior had dispensed with the pain medication and by day three, she was ready to head home. After more than 20 surgeries, Lexi and her mom have become accustomed to the post-op recovery process. What they were both unprepared for this time around, however, was the overwhelming outpouring of support from the community. From nurses to neighbors to complete strangers, Lexi and her story have touched the lives of those around her. Cashman said so many people have come forward to show their support for Lexi, many of them complete strangers. We had a church youth group come by the house and pray with us," Cashman said. "People will see us in the store or in our driveway and stop to speak to us. It's just been amazing."Lexi, often a victim of schoolyard bullies, said one such bully, after learning a bit more about her, has come forward and apologized. "A person who used to push me around in the bathroom came to me, messaged me, and said she was sorry and she was crying," Lexi said. Lexi's story even grabbed the attention of of cials with Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, who called Cashman during her daughter's stay in the hospital. "They said we want you to know we read about Lexi and her story and we have been following what's going on," Cashman said. "I was sitting there, stressing about all of it, thinking about all the medical bills and out of the blue, they called me." Cashman said what happened next was as unexpected as it is life-altering. According to Cashman, the hospital has decided to sponsor Lexi and will pick up the cost of her surgery, as well as any future surgeries or hospital stays she might need. Cashman said she was overwhelmed by the hospital's generosity. "It's phenomenal," Cashman said. "It takes such a huge weight off of us." While recovering from her last surgery, Lexi took time away from her school work to be honored by the Suncoast Chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children. The council selects students for the "Yes, I Can" award who have excelled in the arts and academics in the face of adversity. Lexi was selected to represent Pinellas Park High School. "I felt proud of myself, to be able to show a different perspective to people and to represent my high school," Lexi said of the award. It's Lexi's dedication to make the best of any situation that earned the respect of Lisa CurzioBlake, a deaf and hard of hearing counselor for Pinellas County schools. "Despite all of her medical issues, she's still very tenacious and resilient with her academics," Curzio-Blake said. "She's just a great kid a real ghter," she said. "She always tries to stay positive. "It's a part of her spirit," she continued. "She's a sweet but strong young lady." For someone who has stood out for most of her life, Lexi said she is most looking forward to tting in especially for her senior year. "I've been waiting 17 years for this," Lexi said. "I'll be able to eat properly and talk better and nally have a good smile." For all of her excitement, Lexi has no illusions about her recovery. "It's going to be a long surgery and the recovery is going to suck," she said with a laugh. And although the surgery is just a few days away now, Ruas and his team have been laying the groundwork for months. Several months ago, Ruas took a 3D CAT scan of Lexi's face, which allowed him to perform virtual surgery thanks to the digital images. Ruas has been able to map out ahead of time exactly how the surgery will proceed, which will cut its length considerably. Lexi's condition is known as hemifacial microsomia, a condition where one side of her face was underdeveloped. To address this, Ruas will harvest a portion of Lexi's bula, including an artery to maintain its own blood supply, and transfer it to her face, creating a lower right jawbone. This procedure was attempted once when Lexi was younger, but because the bone was immature, it disintegrated over time. "It also didn't have its own blood supply that time," Ruas said. "This time there is a much better chance." The surgery is so delicate that Ruas will be working to connect millimeters of veins and arteries with sutures only as think as a hair on Lexi's head. "It gets a little tricky," Ruas said. Once her new jawbone is in place, Ruas will insert a custom titanium plate to hold it all together. "It's basically fancy carpentry," he said of the operation. Ruas, who takes yearly trips to South America to perform cleft palate surgeries on children, has been a reconstructive surgeon for 30 years. He said it is a joy to work with children like Lexi, who never give up. "We grew up together," he said of Lexi. "I grew old and she's grown into a poised young lady." With her surgery just days away, Lexi said she is already looking forward to summer, and laments all that she will miss out on during her recovery. "Summer's coming up and I'm not going to be able to do much," she said, adding that she is more worried about boredom than she is the pain of recovery. But boredom is a small price to pay for a new lease of life and Lexi said she has big plans on the horizon but rst she wants to give back to those who have given her so much. Lexi will return to where her academic life started Cross Bayou Elementary just three days before her surgery to volunteer with children. Cross Bayou is home to special programs for the deaf, hard of hearing and blind students in Pinellas County. It's there that Lexi rst found her voice and her drive to excel academically. "The deaf and hard of hearing community is a tight knit community," Curzio-Blake said. "She's got a lot of people who support and love her."

The film, "A Plastic Ocean," and a follow-up discussion of the implications of toxic seas will be presented Thursday, April 26, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the SPC Seminole campus, 9200 113th St. N., Seminole. The event is co-sponsored by the University of Florida IFAS Extension Service. Admission is free, but advance registration is requested. To register, visit Following the screening, there will be a discussion of the plastic waste issue led by Lara Milligan, Natural Resources Special Agent for the Pinellas County Extension Service. The program also will include a display of microplastic waste collected by SPC students in the Natural Science Department at the college's Bay Pines STEM Center on the shore of Hurricane Hole on Boca Ciega Bay. The documentary is the product of a four-year odyssey to explore the issue of plastics in our oceans and to assess its effects on marine ecosystems and human health. It was created by two respected documentary lm-makers, Jo Ruxton as producer and Craig Leeson as director, with the assistance of scientists Dr. Bonnie Monteleone and marine biologist Dr. Lindsay Porter. The lm documents the massive scale of plastic waste in the oceans and the toll it takes on marine life. Plastic waste elds pollute all ve of the world's primary ocean systems, but the biggest is what is commonly known as the Great Paci c Garbage Patch, located roughly 1,500 miles west of San Francisco. A study published March 22 by the journal Scienti c Reports found the scale of that garbage patch to be four to 16 times larger than previously thought, an area roughly four times the size of California. But contrary to popular belief, this garbage is not piled up to form a oating island of plastic. "A Plastic Ocean" documents the fact that it is breaking down into small particulates that enter the marine food chain, where they attract toxins like a magnet. These toxins, consumed by sea creatures, are stored in their fatty tissues and eventually are taken in by humans who consume the edible seafood. Because plastic is man-made, it does not disintegrate the way other materials like wood, paper or even metal objects eventually do. This means that every item of plastic that has ever been created is still with us on the planet today, say scientists.

Nearly 100 people gathered for the Feb. 9 event, Crawley added, including guests from Rep. Charlie Crist's of ce; Pinellas County leaders; the school district; Leinonen's friends and family; SHS students, staff and administration; and representatives from The Dru Project and CommUnity Tampa Bay. Friends, family and SHS students both current and former were horri ed to learn of Leinonen's death in 2016. He was remembered as a popular teen, one who fought openly for equality and who bridged the gap between various peer groups at school. At the time of his death, his close high school friend Andrea Laing said Leinonen "was de nitely ahead of his time." She added, "We were like the awkward kids, all of us. But the thing with Chris is he was the popular kid. Everybody loved him. He was totally open and out and not ashamed of who he was. If someone said, You're the gay kid,' he'd say, Yeah, so?'"Another friend, Catherine McCarthy, who had also known him since high school, said, "Not everyone was as brave and strong as Chris. But he had this way of tapping into people and meeting them where they were and bringing them into the fold."Since Leinonen's death, Chaudry and other friends, with the support of his mother, Christine Leinonen, have created a nonprofit called The Dru Project in his honor. The organization, which is named after a blog he wrote in college, is an LGBTQ+ advocacy group that provides templates for high schools to form their own GayStraight Alliances. According to the group's website, The Dru Project also offers scholarships to students that "exemplify Drew's spirit for inclusion and unity."Photos courtesy of ELIZABETH CRAWLEYOn Feb. 9, Seminole High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance dedicated a sculpture created to honor the life of 2003 SHS graduate Ch ristopher Andrew Leinonen, who was killed in the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting.

County 5A Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO By August, a trained resource of cer needs to be assigned to every public school in Pinellas County. It's a mandate from the state. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri is actively recruiting to ll about 100 new positions. As Gualtieri explained to Pinellas County commissioners March 20, 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. To comply with the new law using law enforcement, which is the preference of the School Board, 101 new school resource of cers 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. According to the job description posted under the "careers" tab at, SROs must have the same knowledge, skills and physical abilities of an entry-level deputy. "The School Resource Deputy works in assigned schools as a law enforcement of cer, maintaining effective communication between school of cials, students, parents and law enforcement of cials, and acts as the liaison between all parties," the description says. "Incumbent exercises judgment and individual initiative in the performance of routine law enforcement duties and in emergency situations. The member also performs public relation duties and tasks speci c to the position. Work is reviewed through personal observation, inspections and by discussion and review of periodic reports." There's a long list of qualifications, including that the applicant be at least 21 years old and be certi ed by the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission. Applicants also must be tobacco-free for six months prior to applying. SROs work a Monday-Friday schedule and receive a take-home vehicle. Starting pay is $46,410 and increases with experience. Someone with one year of experience could receive $47,339, and a person with ve years of experience could start at $51,994. In addition, Gualtieri is offering quali ed persons with at least three years of experience a signing bonus of $3,000. The sheriff also is offering to help with relocation expenses. New hires from out of state could get $3,000. Hires from Manatee, Hillsborough or Pasco counties could get $500 and the sheriff is offering $1,500 to help relocate quali ed applicants from other parts of the state. "Combining current and needed SRO's, the total SRO staffing will need to be approximately 201 of cer/deputies/supervisors," Gualtieri said in a letter sent to the County Commission. New SROs have to be ready to go by July 1 to make sure everything is in place before school starts in August. Gualtieri plans to staff many of the schools with personnel on overtime or temporary duty while new deputies and of cers are hired.

6A County Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018Bill expands allowed uses of tourist development tax By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County collected more than $54 million in tourist development taxes in scal year 2017. The money pays for a number of necessities that support the tourism industry as allowed by state statute. Tourist development tax, aka bed tax, is collected when someone rents an accommodation for six months or less. The current tax is 6 percent. The money goes into a trust fund and the County Commission decides how it is spent. Currently, 60 percent goes to the St. PetersburgClearwater Area Convention Visitors Bureau and pays for operations at Visit St. Pete-Clearwater, which is responsible for marketing and advertising the county as a tourist destination. The remaining 40 percent goes toward other allowable expenses, including beach nourishment, an elite event funding program and capital project funding program. Over the years, bed tax money has helped build a stadium for the Tampa Bay Rays and spring training facilities for the Clearwater Threshers and Dunedin Blue Jays, as well as other sports and recreation facilities. It has been used for tourist attractions, such as the Dal’ Museum, Ruth Eckerd Hall and Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Thanks to a bill passed by the legislature and signed into law by the governor, a new list of projects that bene t tourism are eligible for funding. The new law goes into effect July 1. Assistant County Attorney Michael Zas provided an overview of how changes in state statute would affect bed tax spending during the March 21 meeting of the Tourist Development Council. One of the key changes relates to beach nourishment. Added to the list of allowed uses for beach park facilities or beaches is channel, estuary or lagoon improvements and construction of beach groins. TDC member Phil Henderson, president and CEO of StarLite Cruises, said T-groins were "a very positive thing," which have been proven as a way to "hold the beach in place." He said T-groins stop the movement of sand to other areas after beach nourishment projects, which is a problem especially on Clearwater Beach and around John's Pass. He said having more T-groins along the beach, which could be paid for with bed tax money under the new rules, would "hopefully stop the need for more nourishment." Another key change in the statute, and perhaps the biggest, is the ability to use bed tax money for public facilities that would increase tourist-related business activities. Bed tax money can now be used to "acquire, construct, extend, enlarge, remodel, repair, improve, maintain, operate or nance public facilities" "if the public facilities are needed to increase tourist-related business activities," according to the bill amending the state statute. Tax money can be used to acquire land and improve it, as well as for design and engineering costs, and all other "professional and related costs" required. A public facility is defined as a major capital improvement with a life expectancy of five or more years, including but not limited to transportation, sanitary sewer, solid waste, drainage, potable water and pedestrian facilities. However, bed taxes can be used for public facilities only under certain conditions, including the county collecting at least $10 million in taxes the preceding year, which is not a problem in Pinellas. The county governing board, which would be the County Commission, must approve the use by a vote of at least two-thirds. No more than 70 percent of the cost can be paid with bed tax revenue and funding sources for the remaining cost must be identi ed and con rmed. A minimum of 40 percent of all bed tax must go toward promoting and advertising tourism, which also is not a problem in Pinellas, as the Tourist Development Plan requires 60 percent to go toward that purpose. Lastly, an independent professional analysis must be done, paid for by the Tourist Development Council, which con rms the project would have a positive effect on tourist-related businesses in the county. Zas said the Tourist Development Plan would have to be amended to include the new uses, which requires approval by the TDC and the County Commission. "My gut tells me there will be an ask (for public facilities)," said TDC Chair Ken Welch, who is also the County Commission Chair. He explained that Janet Long, who served as the TDC chair last year and is a County commissioner, "definitely wants to use some of the money for transportation." "I foresee that ask coming," Welch said, adding that there had to be a clear tourism link. He also commented that voters had just approved 10 more years of Penny for Pinellas, which would bring in an estimated $2 billion over the years. He said some of the beach communities were already asking to use Penny money for Gulf Boulevard. "Right now, in my view, the highest potential use of that (bed tax) money would be some kind of transit link," Welch said.Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERAssistant County Attorney Michael Zas provided an overview of how changes to state statute affects bed tax spending during the March 21 meeting of the Tourist Development Council. 040518Estate Planning Essentials Tuesday, April 17, 5:30 p.m. RSVP to Ashleigh Fisichella 727-592-5858 8640 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, 33772 Wills v.

County 7A Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018Recall election is off in Madeira Beach By WAYNE AYERS TBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH There will be no recall election April 17 involving Commissioners John Douthirt and Nancy Oakley. The petition to recall Douthirt and Oakley said the two had committed malfeasance, de ned as wrongdoing or an illegal act, when they voted to hire a budget director rather than a nance director at the direction of then City Attorney Thomas Trask. The city charter says only the city manager can hire a nance director. The city manager position was vacant at the time. Trask had told the commission they had to have a budget done to comply with state statutes and needed someone to prepare it. He said the commission could hire a budget director rather than a nance director without violating the City Charter. A ruling by Circuit Court Judge George M. Jirotka of the Sixth District Circuit Court, issued on April 4 at 5:26 p.m., states, in part: "The vote by the City Commissioners to create and appoint a budget director at a duly noticed City Commission meeting held on May 9, 2017, does not violate an express prohibition contained in the City Charter. Pursuant to Section 166.241, Florida Statutes, the City Commission is required to adopt an annual budget. The City Charter does not expressly prohibit the City Commission from creating or hiring a budget director to assist the City Commission with preparing an annual budget. The grounds for recall set forth in the recall petition are legally insuf cient to allege malfeasance as required by the recall statute." The judge's decision, which upheld Douthirt and Oakley's motion for a temporary injunction, cancels the recall election which had been set for April 17. Contacted after the judge's ruling was announced, City Manager Jonathan Evans said that "this administration will remain focused and committed to working with anyone committed to doing what is in the best interest of the residents, visitors, and businesses here in the city of Madeira Beach. Our goal is, and will continue to be, unity and prosperity for all our community." Douthirt told the Beacon that "the judge af rmed what I believed the whole time." Douthirt said he and the other newly elected commissioners relied on the city attorney for his advice. "We have to depend on the city attorney to give us the proper guidance," he said. Now that the uncertainty of a recall election has ended, Douthirt said the commission's job is "to listen to the citizens and to pull the city back together." "It's a good day for Madeira Beach. We can put all this to rest and move forward," Oakley said.City will still have to pay election’s signi cant costThe estimated $100,000 to $150,000 that the recall election was expected to cost will likely not be avoided. In order to comply with requirements for mailing ballots in advance of the April 17 election date, the plan was to send the ballots out by overnight mail on April 3, the same date as the hearing before the judge. It was hoped the judge would announce his ruling on that date. Since the ruling did not come until late on April 4, it was too late to stop the mailing. A check with the supervisor of elections website con rms that 1,192 ballots were mailed on April 3 to registered voters of Madeira Beach. Now, the election is off and the ballots are useless.ST.

8A Faith & Family Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018 Worship calendarGood Shepherd buys Sunshine PlazaDUNEDIN In a landmark decision to expand one of its core ministries, the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd recently purchased the retail facility located at 1714 N. Fort Harrison Ave., in the nearby Greenwood neighborhood of northwest Clearwater, known as Sunshine Plaza. "We were made up of only a few volunteers when we started," said Gus Robbins-Penniman, the store's founder and ministry leader, in a press release. "Now we have over 20 volunteers, employ four individuals from the local community and will soon welcome a store manager in the month ahead. "Our team picks up donations of furniture and other household items throughout Pinellas County for free and resells them at the shop for modest prices. But more than reselling furniture, we provide hope and a sense of community to a neighborhood that is hungry for both. One of the intangibles provided by this ministry is conversation and compassion. There's not a day that goes by when someone from the local neighborhood doesn't stop in just to say hello to a welcoming and supportive group of new friends." When he approached the church leadership about the idea back in 2010, Robbins-Penniman was armed with a background in property management, prior experience with the Lamb of God Thrift Store in the San Carlos district of Fort Myers, and a dream of making the same thing happen in Dunedin. He signed a lease for the rst 1,000 square feet in January 2012. In the last six years, the furniture store has grown to 6,500 square feet, and with an average sales growth rate of 53 percent per year it has generated over $465,000 in revenue. This is signi cant, but more importantly the store has contributed $267,000 to local charities during this time. "Today, most churches depend on their volunteers and not just Sunday morning collections to support the ministries they believe in," according to Good Shepherd's treasurer Joe Nixon. "We have been blessed by having members who have stepped up to the challenge. Just last year we logged over 12,500 hours of volunteer time to support our ministries." With all of this pointing in the right direction, making the decision to purchase and own the facility was still a tough choice. To have a better understanding of the way forward, the Vestry invited all of the parishioners to a town hall meeting. Nearly 80 members attended some expressed their optimism, others were not so optimistic. The tipping point came when the congregation realized that the increased rental structure would put unnecessary pressure on the ministry's ability to serve the community. At the end of the day the town hall meeting was seen as a marked success all had their concerns addressed and expressed con dence that the Vestry would make the right decision on behalf of the parish. UUC Humanist Group to discuss singularity CLEARWATER The Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater Humanist Group will meet Sunday, April 15, 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., in the Octagon Arts Center on the UUC campus, 2470 Nursery Road, Clearwater.

9A Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018 041218


10A Pet Connection Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018Pets of the weekSummers in Florida are hot. It's no wonder that during the summer months we see increased cases of heat stroke in pets. Don't worry, we have some important tips to remember this summer to keep your pets cool and how to recognize that your pet may be getting overheated. Heat stroke, also known as hyperthermia, is caused by a higher than normal temperature. This condition requires veterinary care immediately since it is life-threatening. Any animal that is exposed to high temperatures for long periods of time is at risk of developing heat stroke. The most common situation that occurs is an animal is left in the car in the summer heat without proper ventilation. Other situations include being left outside without adequate shade and water or being exercised for excessive periods of time in the heat (such as running around at the dog park). Something else to be aware of are predisposing factors for heat stroke. Pets that are obese are at greater risk than those that are at an ideal weight. Also, pets that are considered brachycephalic breeds such as Boston terriers, pugs and Persian cats are at a greater risk due to the conformation of their nose and airway. As the owner, it is important for you to recognize heat stroke. When heat stroke is beginning to affect your pet, they will typically begin excessively panting while becoming restless. Hypersalivation (excessive drooling) can also occur. As the pet becomes more distressed, they begin to become wobbly when standing which leads them to collapse. In the more serious stages, your pet may exhibit blue or bright red gums due to respiratory dif culty and elevated blood pressure and temperature. Finally, without treatment, heat stroke victims begin to seizure and at this point without any intervention, most pets will succumb to the disease. If you are concerned that your pet may be having a heat stroke these are some things you can do: Get your pet out of the heat and into an air-conditioned environment if possible. You can direct a fan at them to increase cool air ow Begin cooling your pet with wet towels. The best place to apply is the back of the neck, groin, and armpits. Wetting the paw pads and ear aps will also cool your pet. You may offer water to your pet if they are interested in drinking but do not force water down your pet's mouth. Begin transporting your pet to the nearest veterinary facility. The best way to treat heat stroke is to prevent it from ever happening. You can prevent heat stroke by remembering to: Limit time outdoors during extremely high temperatures Be sure your pet is not over-exercised and takes breaks to cool down while outdoors Provide your pet with ample shade and water when out in the heat Never leave your pet in the car for any amount of time, even in cooler weather Know how your pet's breed and physical condition can affect their risk of developing heat stroke By knowing the symptoms of heat stroke and how to prevent it, you can ensure that you and your furry family member can enjoy the summer safely.Marie C.

11A Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018 041218


12A Health & Fitness Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018 Health newsBay Pines VAHCS named Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality ST. PETERSBURG The Bay Pines VA Healthcare System recently was recognized as a Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the country's largest LGBTQ civil rights organization. The annual Healthcare Equality Index scores healthcare facilities on policies and practices dedicated to the equitable treatment and inclusion of their LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees. This is the fifth consecutive year the healthcare system has received this designation. Bay Pines VAHCS earned top marks in meeting non-discrimination and training criteria that demonstrate its commitment to equitable, inclusive care for LGBTQ patients, and their families, who can face signi cant challenges in securing the quality health care and respect they deserve. "It is an honor to receive HEI's designation as a Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality again this year," said Suzanne M. Klinker in a press release. Klinker is director at Bay Pines VAHCS. "We are committed to ensuring that veterans are provided a safe, all inclusive, high-quality health care experience and this designation demonstrates that commitment." Bay Pines is one of 418 healthcare facilities nationwide to be named a Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality and one of 95 VA healthcare facilities recognized as part of this group. Other VA facilities in Florida honored include the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital in Tampa, Miami VA Healthcare System, North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, Orlando VA Medical Center and West Palm Beach VA Medical Center. The Healthcare Equality Index offers healthcare facilities unique and powerful resources designed to help provide equal care to a long-overlooked group of patients, as well as assistance in complying with regulatory requirements and access to highquality staff training. The Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Health Equity coordinates facility participation in the Healthcare Equity Index. This of ce is responsible for championing equitable health for all Veterans including Veterans from LGBTQ communities.

Throughout the month, LifeLink of Florida honors the spirit of those individuals who make transplants possible organ, tissue and eye donors. LifeLink celebrates the lives of recipients fortunate enough to have received their second chance at life thanks to the generosity of an organ donor and remembers the heroes of organ and tissue donation whose legacies live on in the lives of those they helped save. LifeLink also calls attention to the more than 115,000 men, women and children who still wait, with more than 5,800 patients waiting in Florida alone. One organ donor can potentially save the lives of eight people, and improve the lives of 70 more through tissue donation. Donation, with the primary exception of living kidney donation, occurs after death and deciding to register as a donor does not impact your medical care should you become ill or injured in an accident. People of all ages can choose to donate and help others in need, and donation is supported by all major religions as a personal choice and act of generosity. Donation places no nancial burden on the donor's family. Last year, nearly 35,000 lives were saved throughout the country thanks to organ donation. Thousands more lives were improved through tissue transplantation. Sadly, 22 people die each day because of a lack of available organs for transplant. As tens of thousands of patients await throughout the United States for their chance to receive the gift of life through kidney, heart, lung, liver, pancreas and/or small intestine transplants, everyone has the opportunity to help make a lifesaving difference for critically ill patients, simply by registering as organ and tissue donors. To register, visit Individuals also may register during a driver license transaction while at the local driver license of ce. LifeLink of Florida is a nonpro t community service organization dedicated to the recovery of organs and tissues for transplantation.

The project didn't stop with the rst delivery of 100 boxes in December 2016. Kira's ideas and leadership along with donations from friends and the help of the Morton Plant Mease Health Care Foundation's Skip Cline Society have allowed her to continue to make and donate these boxes. Kira and members of the Skip Cline Society will meet to assemble more boxes Friday, April 13, 4 to 6 p.m., at Mease Countryside Hospital, 3231 McMullen Booth Road, Safety Harbor. Kira created the logo, and with input from her mother and the hospital caregivers, she determined the boxes' contents, which include origami, colored pencils, crayons, pencil sharpeners, pencils, coloring pages, a sketch pad, model magic and wax craft sticks. She has designed boxes for preschoolers and for school-aged children. The art supplies help the children pass time and stay entertained while they are hospitalized or waiting in the ER.TIMB, area chambers to sponsor Health Fair and Trade ShowTREASURE ISLAND The Treasure Island & Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce, Revenue Generating Activities Network, the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Seminole Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the second annual Health Fair and Trade Show Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Treasure Island Community Center, 154 106th Ave., Treasure Island.

Faith & Family 13A Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018The process of transferring land from government to private ownership has a long history in our country, and even a longer history if we look back before the formation of the United States. Examining key ways in which that transfer took place can reveal both a history of the development of the United States as well as sets of records that pertain to our ancestors. In this article, we will look at three ways that land changed hands between the government and private individuals. Over the years there were many programs that opened public land to individual ownership, but the three we will address here are probably the most important for genealogical purposes. The rst method of land transfer was a simple cash purchase. The land act of 1785 was the rst attempt of the United States government to sell land. It was not particularly successful even at the price of about $1.25 per acre because the government required so many acres to be purchased at one time: 640 acres, or one square mile. But over time the kinks were worked out and selected plots of land were put on the market to be purchased by private individuals with greater success. Though documentation was generated in these transactions, often the only piece of paper was a bill of sale kept by the government. But the purchaser ended up with a document from the government showing legal transfer of ownership of the land. That document was called a land patent. The second method of land transfer we will talk about is bounty land. This was essentially free land given to soldiers in connection with their service. Sometimes it was used to incentivize enlistment, and sometimes it was used to reward loyal service. The U.S. government used bounty lands in every war from the Revolutionary War up to but not including the Civil War. The amount of land that a soldier received basically depended on the rank, with privates receiving 50 to 100 acres and generals receiving upwards of 1,000 acres. After each applicable war, the government designated tracts of land, usually on the frontier, wherein soldiers could select their land and exchange their warrant for an ownership document, that again being a land patent. The records generated from the transfer are not voluminous, consisting of mainly the warrant, survey, and the land patent. But even those meager documents can provide proof of service and locate land that may have been in your family for generations. The reason bounty land was not used during and after the Civil War brings us to our third method of land transfer, and that is homesteading. The rst homestead act became effective in 1862 after it was signed by Abraham Lincoln. It essentially gave 160 acres to qualified individuals if they would live on and improve the land for ve years. The nal transfer of Homestead Land from the government to the homesteader was made official again by the land patent. Working up to the issuance of the land patent, several other documents were generated. Those include various af davits, plat maps, witness statements, etc. They chronicle the surveying of the land, the quali cations of the individual to apply for a homestead, the homesteader's statement that the requirements to take possession of the land had been met, witness statements af rming what the homesteader swore to, and the ever-present land patent. You will notice that in each of the land transfer processes described above, the nal step, which was legal transfer of land ownership from the government to an individual, was the issuance of a land patent. You can think of this as the rst deed, but since it was a transfer from the government, that piece of paper has the special designation of "land patent." The document called the deed, with which we are all familiar, is the document that transfers ownership of land from one private individual to another. The records generated from each of the land transfer processes described above ended up at the governmental land office in Washington in a le called the land entry case le. As indicated, some of those les may contain only a few pieces of paper, with the homestead le probably containing the most. Over time those land entry case les were transferred to the national archives and can be requested from there using the process described on the website Requesting the le from the national archives requires that you know some information originally recorded on the land patent that the landowner received from the government. You can most likely nd that information in the land patents which are digitized and online at the Bureau of Land Management website www.glorecords. The database is easily searchable, and when the land patent is found, it can be printed or downloaded for your records. The information contained on the land patent will facilitate ordering the complete land entry case le from the national archives. If you go to the Largo Library, you can get free access to a subscription website called It also gives you information on people who acquired land from the government, and ties in nicely to the Bureau of Land Management website previously mentioned. There are other websites that can also aid in the search for property documents. Familiar standbys such as,,, and can easily be searched for occurrences of your ancestor's name. Print resources are also available, and the Genealogy Center at Largo Public Library is one place to go to access those. The government has sold or given away over 1 billion acres of land and granted over 5 million land patents. It is no wonder that spending time looking at the three land transfer methods we discussed may be pro table in your family research.

14A Community Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018Largo event aims to make women with special needs feel Beyond Beautiful' By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO An area nonpro t is rolling out the red carpet this weekend to make women with special needs look and feel beautiful. On Saturday, April 14, St. Paul United Methodist Church in Largo will host the Beyond Beautiful fashion event organized by Help Us Gather, a Clearwater-based nonpro t that advocates for inclusion and connects people with disabilities of all ages to social events and activities. The group's rst large community outreach event will serve 70 to 80 women with special needs by providing them with a glamorous evening to inspire con dence and friendship, according to HUG founder Robin Lally. "The women are able to come and experience a night of glamour and pampering for the rst half and then we're having an inner beauty fashion show in the second half," she said of the event, which costs guests just $5 to attend. Lally said HUG also has partnered with Miss America and Miss International organizations and 10 title-holding beauty queens from all over the state will be attending and taking photos with participants. The Belleair Shore resident said the pampering will start right away when the women walk into red carpet entry where a photographer will take their photos and a pair of beauty queens will pose with them. From there, they will move on to hair, makeup and nail stations, a glamour table, where each guest will take home two pieces of jewelry, and a friendship table, where guests can connect with others. Lally said the second half of the event will include a pageant highlighting inner beauty and will award several inspirational women. Also, each woman who attends will be invited to walk the runway and tell everyone why she's beautiful. "We just wanted to honor women across all different abilities and show that what's really important after glamming up and having fun with being beautiful is our inner beauty," she said. Lally said the event has attracted a distinguished crowd, including several disability advocates and board members and administrators from Miss America and Miss Wheelchair. In fact, she's been so encouraged by the feedback and the partnership with the St. Paul Handicapable Ministry that she hopes to turn it into an annual event. "It's our rst big community outreach event," she said, adding that she expects about 200 guests, which includes family and caregivers. "We de nitely have been working hard at it and paying attention to all of the details because we want it to be really special and memorable. The goal is to have every woman that attends leave with a sense of friendship, con dence and inclusion." Lally also emphasized that the event is not a fundraiser because it's purpose is solely to support the women. "It's really about creating that sisterhood between the women and the community," she said. For those who wish to attend, Lally said there is still time to sign up by visiting BeautifulWho: Women of 14 years or older and of all abilities are invited to attend. What: A celebratory fashion event. Where: Saint Paul United Methodist Church, 1498 Rosery Road NE, Largo When: Saturday, April 14, 6 to 8:30 p.m. Cost: $5 Dress: Dressy encouraged, but not required.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018WASHINGTON President Donald Trump wants to help federal inmates "who have served their time get a second chance." That's what he said in his 2018 State of the Union address. Thank Trump's senior aide and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, not his attorney general. For Kushner, prison reform is personal. In 2005, his real-estate mogul father was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to tax evasion, witness tampering and making illegal campaign donations. "Like me, Jared understands because of dealing with the BOP (Bureau of Prisons) and his father," observed Pat Nolan, director of the American Conservative Union Foundation's Center for Criminal Justice Reform and a former California GOP state lawmaker who served 29 months in federal prison on a one-count racketeering conviction. Nolan has been at the forefront of a bipartisan movement to overhaul the federal criminal justice system spurred by the left's aversion to big spending on prisons and the right's support for smaller, less invasive government. The conservative side of the initiative calls itself "Right on Crime." He lauded Kushner for quickly learning "what's important to do and what we can't do." During President Barack Obama's second term, congressional standouts like Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, worked together on legislation to reduce federal mandatory minimum sentences designed to put away drug kingpins for decades but too often imposed stiff time on low-level offenders in the drug trade. Obama was ready to sign game-changing legislation and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, was on board. All Congress had to do was pass something. But nothing happened as the 2016 election eclipsed lawmaking inside the Capitol. Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder did encourage federal prosecutors not to seek the harshest sentences for non-kingpins. That was progress. Then the law-and-order Trump won the White House in November and chose Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, to be his attorney general. A former federal prosecutor, Sessions rescinded Holder's instructions. Big change in the federal system seemed dead, and would have been, if not for Kushner. He explained to the Review-Journal, "The administration wants to assist long-time prison reform advocates with their initiative to create a prison system that will rehabilitate citizens who have made mistakes, paid the price and are deserving of a second chance which will ultimately reduce crime and save taxpayer dollars." In practical terms, Kushner has helped in two ways. First, his commitment tells Hill Republicans that Trump is not likely to reverse his support for prison reform. Kushner also found a way to co-opt Sessions by convincing inmate advocates to delay their push for sentencing reform in exchange for Sessions not standing in the way of their rehabilitation goals. Voila. The Justice Department now "is working closely with the White House to develop legislative reforms that further the president's goals for prison and re-entry improvements," said spokesman Drew Hudson. Nolan and others with "Right on Crime" see hope in the Prison Reform and Redemption Act, sponsored by Rep. Doug Collins, R-Georgia, that would require prisons to assess inmates' recidivism risk, encourage drug treatment and offer incentives for inmates to participate in recidivism reduction programs. Collins said that his bill would create "a federal prison-wide system for evaluating the risk of every individual prisoner for re-offending and then offering evidence-based resources like mental health care, vocational skills, substance abuse treatment, and faith-based programs that make them less likely to re-offend when they are released." Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Sheldon Whitehouse, D-Rhode Island, have teamed up behind a similar bill that also seeks to aid prisoner re-entry into society. Offering programs to help inmates turn straight should be a popular idea. "Whatever one's view is of the federal sentencing laws whether you think they are too fair, too harsh, or too lenient there should be agreement that it is critical for the GOP to have programs for transitioning federal inmates back into society," DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote in a 2017 report. Many criminal justice reformers don't think the Collins bill goes far enough. Like Nolan, they want a bill that pares back federal mandatory minimum sentences that too often put away lowand midlevel offenders for decades, even life. Even under Trump, they won't settle for inmate-centered reform only. For example, Eric Sterling, who founded the Criminal Justice Policy Foundation to correct excesses in federal drug laws that he helped write as a Senate aide in the 1980s, thinks Kushner and Nolan have set too low a bar. "A traditional Washington approach is to say, always take half a loaf rather than no loaf," said Sterling. In this case, "conceptually it doesn't make sense to just try x problems with prisons when you're not addressing the ows of people coming into prison." Sterling recalled how drug-war opponents pushed Congress to reduce a sentencing disparity that fell disproportionately on black offenders. The federal sentence for possessing ve grams of crack cocaine was ve years in prison, same as for possessing 500 grams of powder cocaine, a drug of choice for white offenders. It took years for Congress to pass a measure addressing the disparity with the Fair Sentencing Act of 2009, though it merely reduced the disparity rather than eliminating it. "We're now eight years later and it hasn't been addressed again," Sterling said. But Derek Cohen of the Texas Public Policy Foundation sees the Collins bill as "a good rst step." He hopes reformers don't let the perfect get in the way of the good. Over the last decade, Cohen noted, Texas of cials concentrated on strengthening treatment and re-entry programs for offenders and it worked. The number of state inmates declined. Brooke Rollins, the president of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, is leaving her perch in Austin to push for reforms nationwide. And she's going to work for Kushner. Contact Debra J.

LETTERS Food pantry celebration honors volunteersEditor: April 7, the Beach Community Food Pantry, held its second annual Celebration of Giving fundraiser at Calvary Episcopal Church's Parish Hall. The event was held to honor the 60-plus volunteers that work diligently to support the 900 family members who receive food products from BCFP monthly. On behalf of our clients who bene t from our services, we wish to thank the organizations and individuals who support BCFP with their time, talent and funding. We are making a difference in our community! Please visit us at our next fundraiser, IRB's Homeowners Beachfest event to be held on April 21st on IRB's beachfront. The pantry is currently in need of food transport volunteers who can make the weekly trip to Feeding Tampa Bay and RCS to pick up the food products we distribute to our clients. If you have a few hours each week to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate, we can use your help. Volunteers should have a pickup truck or SUV. Please contact BCFP Director David Kline, 727-418-1673, for more information. David Kline Director Beach Community Food Pantry Of the hundreds of newsworthy trends and events passing our way, here are a few that caught my eye: COMING SOON? A MALE CONTRACEPTIVE. Recent research indicates medical science is closing in on a birth control pill to prevent men from getting pregnant or even causing pregnancy in women. The secret ingredient is dimethandrolone undecanoate. This substance, when taken by men facing toward Pittsburgh on a cloudless night in October, lowers the male testosterone level. This reduces the chances of the men impregnating a woman, especially if she is wearing one of the several internal gadgets that during the past 50 years or so science has served up for women to decipher before using. These efforts together with the primary contraceptives used by and for men (i.e., abstinence, condoms and zipperless trousers) have lowered U.S. unintended pregnancy rates (as of 2011) to the lowest level in the previous 30 years. It's possible that the oncoming male pill will drive those rates even lower, until hundreds of neonatal hospital units throughout the world will be converted into used-car lots. MARK ZUCKERBERG, chairman and CEO of Facebook, is one of the richest persons dwelling in our galaxy. However, he attempts to hide that fact by appearing in public wearing only a T-shirt and whatever trousers lie on the closet floor as he starts each day. He explains his sartorial style this way: "I try to eliminate any choices that hinder my serving my company and humankind." Or words to that effect. Good for you, Mark baby. But you could gain several minutes each day by not shaving, which is the style of many of today's hairy male millennials. As I write these words, Facebook is under assault for a number of reasons by investors and millions of unhappy Facebook users. So, hang on to your T-shirt, Mr. Z. One day it may symbolize a chatty madness that hypnotized the world for a time. SLIGHTLY MORE THAN TWO YEARS REMAIN before one of our nation's biggest celebrations will occur: the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage. It was on Aug. 18, 1920, that our 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was rati ed. This accomplished two things: (1) It gave American women the right to vote, and (2) it nulli ed (at least partially) the long-held, monumentally stupid idea that women are not as bright, competent and trustworthy as men. Plus a few other unjusti ed delusions. The upcoming suffrage celebration will take place only a few weeks before the 2020 presidential election, when Donald Trump may (or may not) try for another four years in office. Today signs are appearing that he or Mike Pence (who will succeed Trump after his possible impeachment or conviction for obstruction of justice) may face a female opponent. Rumors are rife that a few women would like to try, and I hope they do. "I CAN'T FIND A JOB." That's been a common complaint in past economic times, but not now, according to many business owners. Instead, "We can't fill our job openings" is a more common cry today, when the U.S. economy is booming. New job offers are climbing, as are minimum wage levels in companies across the land. Employers are ramping up their recruitment efforts by running internships, training programs and apprenticeships. Almost makes me wish I was 20 years old again. WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE IN FINLAND? The United Nations World Happiness Report recently said that Finland is "the best society on the planet." The Finns got high marks for their levels of education, respect for the environment, trust and their general satisfaction. So why isn't Finland ooded with thousands of immigrants each week? Possible factors to consider: Finland has the highest homicide rate in Western Europe, and a suicide rate much greater than the world average. Finns are crazy for guns. Finland ranks fourth in world gun ownership. Alcoholism is rampant. Booze helps Finns withstand the region's horrible climate (both summer and winter). Finally, the economy has sagged following the decline of Nokia, the giant electronics company. But Finland is alive with beautiful music and dancing, including the nation's own versions of the tango. So, think it over. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ will hurt newspapers, readersYou have read about the new tariffs on imported aluminum and steel, and on products from China. Now it seems our own business newspaper printing and publishing will take some casualties in a trade war over paper. Last month, the U.S. government piled huge tariffs onto the imports of newsprint from Canada, including those from our biggest supplier. As a result, the price will jump from $600 to $800 for every ton, and we use about 17,000 tonsevery year. That increase is more than 30 percent, and would add more than $3 million to the Tampa Bay Times' annual newsprint bill. You can multiply our example across the American newspaper industry, which is already facing strong headwinds. Historically, advertising provided the lion's share of newspaper revenue, but in just 10 years, the recession and other market forces have cut those ad revenues by more than half. Newspapers remain vital civic assets nobody else will report on your community with the depth and breadth of a newspaper but publishing them is not an easy business, and these tariffs will make it even harder. This is a kick in the teeth. These tariffs will hurt our readers, because they create pressure to raise our prices, and they will force publishers to re-examine every other expense. Maybe we will drop some puzzles and comics no big deal, unless we cut one that is your favorite. These tariffs also will hurt our employees, because payroll is the only expense that is bigger than newsprint. To help offset the extra expense of paper, publishers will eliminate jobs. Make no mistake: These tariffs will cause layoffs across American newspapers, including this one. These tariffs started with a single American newsprint manufacturer who complained that Canadian companies were "dumping" their product in the U.S. at below-market prices. In the current political climate, that complaint found a friendly ear in Washington. Other American manufacturers opposed these tariffs because they know they will damage newspapers and reduce the demand for newsprint. But now that the tariffs are taking effect, the American companies are hiking their own prices, so we have little room to shop around. Just about every American newspaper and all our trade associations are joining the ght to challenge these tariffs, but even if we succeed, it will take months to reverse this terrible decision. Meanwhile, prices will go up. Jobs will be lost. Important stories will go uncovered. If you believe that newspapers do essential work, we would be grateful for your support. Please let your members of Congress and senators know that these reckless tariffs must be repealed not just because they hurt newspapers, but because they will damage the customers and communities we serve. Thank you for hearing us out. Paul C. Tash is the chairman and CEO of the Times Publishing Company.

16A Outdoors Seminole Beacon, April 12, 2018Bait stocks are looking good for spring shingThe arrival of baitfish into our back waters signifies a change is in the air. Spring has sprung, and the shing is nally going to get good for the next few months. King sh made their entrance into our near-shore waters this week. Plenty of smaller king sh ranging in size from 8 to 15 pounds can be targeted in 20 to 40 feet of water. Live pilchards, thread n herring and blue runners are all available and can be caught on sabiki rigs within a couple of miles from shore. Slow trolling around arti cial reefs and or hard-bottom areas should produce steady action if the water stays clean. Plenty of Spanish mackerel will be mixed in with the king sh; trolling small silver spoons behind a number one planer within a couple of miles of the beach will keep you busy with large early season mackerel. Cobia are real targets right now. Whether your grouper shing or king shing be ready with a rod rigged that you can cast a live pin sh a good distance. We've encountered three cobia in the past week and were finally able to hook and catch one over the weekend. Inshore, trout remain the best bite with some better redfish action expected with the up-coming new moon. Target trout along sharp drop-offs on the edges of the ats, low tide has been the key as it will really concentrate the sh on the edge. Live free-lined pilchards are working best in tempting the larger sh into biting. Snook fishing has been great this past week in Tampa Bay. Water temperatures are now consistently warm enough for snook to be active the entire day. Snook ranging in size from 20 to 26 inches can be found on almost any mangrove shoreline throughout the bay. Live chumming with pilchards to get the sh whipped up into a frenzy is standard practice for those who can nd plenty of bait for the day. Bait can be found holding on the Skyway Bridge and many of the channel markers that surround the area.

Angels Against Abuse was created by a small group of visionaries who saw a need to provide assistance to children beyond the scope of basic services covered by the foster care system. Most often, these children are removed forcibly from their homes due to abuse, and they are placed in the care of agency housing or private foster homes. The experience is traumatic, and the children often leave with nothing but the clothes on their backs. The Angels team set out to help these kids by providing goods and services not covered by the foster care system; helping to reduce the trauma of home removal; trying to create as many traditional childhood experiences for these children living in nontraditional conditions; and working with children and families to stop the cycle of abuse.Creative Behavior Solutions earns SCORE recognitionLARGO Largo business Creative Behavior Solutions LLC, a business that provides therapy to children with special needs, has been named a winner of the 2018 American Small Business Championship by SCORE, the nation's largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors.

Not only is GEOINT essential to national security, but it can also be applied in nearly every industry from city planning to precision agriculture and nancial predictions to disaster management. "We have a wonderful program planned for Tampa students this year," said Lindsay Mitchell, USGIF's lead educational manager, in a press release. "By interacting with technology demonstrations and participating in interactive map activities, the children will be encouraged to think about how GEOINT is used in their everyday lives. They will also learn about the many career opportunities that require GEOINT knowledge and skills." The GEOINT Symposium is hosted annually by USGIF and is the largest geospatial intelligence event in the United States. The event offers the defense, intelligence, and homeland security communities as well as other federal and civil GEOINT users and producers the opportunity to learn from senior leaders through an exciting agenda of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and breakout tracks.

Opening this weekend ‘Rampage’ stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris; Brad Anderson directs thriller ‘Beirut’ Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following lms opening in wide release:‘Beirut’Genre: Thriller and action Cast: Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris, Mark Pellegrino, Larry Pine, Shea Whigham, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Idir Chender and Jonny Coyne Director: Brad Anderson Rated: R In 1972 Beirut, American diplomat Mason Skiles (Jon Hamm) hosts a cocktail party accompanied by his wife and Karim, the 13-year-old Lebanese orphan (Yoau Saian Rosenberg) whom they hope to adopt. The festivities are disrupted when Mason’s best friend, CIA Agent Cal Riley (Mark Pellegrino) arrives with startling information about Karim. Seconds later, terrorists attack the party with tragic results. Ten years later, Mason, now an alcoholic working as a mediator for labor disputes in Boston, gets approached by a stranger in a bar, who hands him a passport, cash and a plane ticket along with an urgent invitation from mutual “friends” that he travels to Beirut. Reluctantly, Mason arrives in Beirut only to nd that the formerly picturesque city on the sea has become a violence-ridden warzone. Mason soon discovers the real reason he’s been called back. CIA and Embassy of cials Donald Gaines (Dean Norris), Gary Ruzak (Shea Whigham) and Ambassador Frank Whalen (Larry Pine) explain that terrorists have kidnapped a CIA agent. Mason’s mission: negotiate a swap for the release of terrorist leader Abu Rajal (Hicham Ouraqa), believed to be imprisoned by Israeli secret police, in exchange for the American. Navigating the rubble-strewn city with the help of his Embassy-assigned handler, savvy “cultural attach” Sandy Crowder (Rosamund Pike), Mason secretly meets with the kidnappers and uncovers clues that help him unravel competing agendas advanced by Israeli military boss Roni Niv (Alon Aboutboul), American politicians, Palestinian Liberation Front minister Bashir (Ahmed Said Arif) and corrupt bureaucrats. Confronting ghosts from his past, Mason faces a formidable question: Who do you trust in a world where the truth emerges only when it’s convenient – or pro table? A taut action thriller from director Brad Anderson and writer-producer Tony Gilroy, Beirut takes an un inching look at the cost of freedom.‘Rampage’Genre: Action and adventure Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, P.J.

The book is a charming yet sneakily speculative YA story that is a must-read for all dog lovers young and old. It’s set in an indeterminate point in the future where dogs are all but extinct, replaced by robot stand-ins. The heroine, 17-year-old Nano Miller lives off the coast of Florida on Dog Island, which serves as a testing ground for the newest prototypes of robot dogs and also houses a sanctuary for the world’s last remaining “organic” dogs. After discovering a living puppy and nding herself unable to part with it, Nano smuggles it out of the sanctuary and goes on the run, preparing to ght for what she believes is right. At the book launch, Greenwood will read from and sign copies of her book and answer questions. The Suncoast Animal League will also be at the event with adoptable dogs. The event is free and is part of the fourth annual SunLit Festival. Greenwood is a former lawyer living in St. Petersburg with her husband, Ray; their dog, Murray; and their cats, Elf, Jack, and Chappy. She was animal welfare editor for The Huf ngton Post, and now writes about dogs, cats, and other critters for The Today Show, The Washington Post, Slate, Creative Loa ng, The Dodo, the American Bar Association Journal, and other publications.

Tickets start at $28.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit According to the biography posted on his website, Lynch will always consider himself a musician trapped in the body of a comedian. His unique blend of musical based comedy has earned him ercely loyal fans around the world who live to experience his sold-out live shows, four best-selling CDs, his RIAA-certi ed Gold DVD and his top-rated Comedy Central Specials. Lynch moved to New York in 1996 with the goal of becoming a performer. While temping during the day, he wrote songs and performed at clubs and underground music venues around Manhattan at night. He quickly developed a devoted fan base and caught the attention of Comedy Central, who invited him to record his rst cable special in 2000. That special became one of their highest rated shows in the series, almost unheard of for an unknown. His second Comedy Central special debuted in January 2008, with similarly high ratings. In 2006, Lynch stepped onto the Broadway stage for the rst time in the title role of “The Wedding Singer.” His performance earned him nominations for some of the highest honors in American theater including the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actor in a Musical, as well as the highly coveted Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical. Lynch’s early discography includes “A Little Bit Special” (2000), “Superhero” (2003), “The Craig Machine” (2005) and “Three Balloons” (2009). In 2012, “Lion,” Lynch’s highly anticipated fth album, was released. Part Americana, part folk, part alt-country, its listeners will notice a more musically sophisticated album with the same cutting humor. Lynch has toured with some of the biggest names in comedy, including Lewis Black and the late Mitch Hedberg. He’s also headlined his own sold out shows throughout the United States, Australia and Europe. When not touring the globe for ardent and enthusiastic fans, Stephen divides his time between New York and Michigan with his wife. Photo by DALE MAYStephen Lynch performs April 21 at Capitol Theatre.

Tickets are available at the ticket of ce at Amalie Arena and at Ticketmaster outlets. Call 800-745-3000 or visit Visit or call 813-301-2500 for venue information. The hard-rocking lineup for one of Tampa’s premier rock festivals will feature performances by headliner Shinedown along with Three Days Grace, Seether, Starset, Fozzy, 10 Years and more. Leading the charge for 21st century rock, multi-platinum, record-breaking band Shinedown – featuring Brent Smith on vocals, Zach Myers on guitar, Eric Bass on bass and production, and Barry Kerch on drums – has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, has 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums. Shinedown averages more than 3.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify as one of the most-listened-to rock bands on the platform with over 600 million streams, contributing to their more than 1 billion total overall streams to date. Every one of the singles released over Shinedown’s nearly two-decade career has ascended to the Top 10 – a feat unmatched by any other rock band, now or ever before. They began their unmatched domination of multi-format rock radio with their 2003 platinum-certi ed debut “Leave a Whisper” and its gold-selling 2005 follow-up “Us and Them.” The follow-up – 2008’s Billboard Top 10, double-platinum LP “The Sound of Madness” – remained on the Top 200 Chart for a staggering 120 consecutive weeks and made rock history with six No. 1 singles including the gold “Devour,” platinum “If You Only Knew,” and the triple-platinum breakthrough “Second Chance,” igniting a mainstream crossover and soaring to No. 1 at Hot AC and Top 3 at Top 40. After contributing gold-certi ed “Diamond Eyes” for the lm “The Expendables” and “Her Name Is Alice” to the album “Almost Alice” inspired by Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland,” the American Music Awardnominated band seized No. 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and No. 4 on the Top 200 with 2012’s gold-certi ed “Amaryllis,” which launched three No. 1 Active Rock anthems – “Bully,” “Unity,” and “Enemies.” The band’s 2015 album “Threat to Survival” marked their third straight Top 10 debut on the Top 200, arriving at No. 5 while also debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums Chart and bringing Shinedown’s total count of No. 1 rock singles to 12 thanks to hits like “Cut the Cord” and “State of My Head.” Hailed as a ery and always exciting live act, the band continues to engender diehard love from millions of global fans and has racked up countless sold out tours and festival headlining sets as well as numerous national television appearances such as “The Tonight Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “TODAY.” Since 2003, Three Days Grace has staked a spot amongst the hard rock vanguard, quietly breaking records, toppling charts, moving millions of units worldwide, and making history by holding the all-time record for “most #1 singles at Active Rock Radio ever” with 13. The Ontario, Canada quartet – featuring Matt Walst on lead vocals, Barry Stock on lead guitar, Brad Walst on bass, and Neil Sanderson on drums, percussion, keyboards and programming – continue to blaze that trail on their sixth full-length album, the aptly titled “Outsider,” released March 9 on RCA Records. “To me, ‘Outsider’ represents the journey to nd your place,” said Brad in a press release provided by RCA Records. “The world feels crazy at times. We try to get away from that every once in a while. We do our own thing, and we’re comfortable doing it. We have always looked forward—and not backwards. That’s an ongoing theme for us here.” “It’s what we’ve done in many ways by being on the outside,” added Neil. “This is all about taking a step back from life’s madness without destroying yourself, cutting everyone off, or going crazy. You get a break and nd the space to create.” That’s exactly what the musicians did in the fall of 2016. Instead of congregating in a downtown Toronto rehearsal space, they initially wrote in a converted garage behind Brad’s house located two hours from the city. Eventually, they retreated to Neil’s 90-acre farm to further hone ideas. Following daytime snowmobile trips, the guys often sat around bon res with acoustic guitars, tapping into the wild spirit surrounding them. “We grew up hanging out in the woods and building res,” said Brad. “Home is where the heart is. This is where we’re most comfortable. We were able to focus on our craft. We spent more time writing this than any other project. It has a sense of seclusion to it. It’s like we naturally migrated back.” “Outsider” feels right at home alongside a catalog of fan favorites from Three Days Grace. In 2015, “Human” marked the group’s second straight bow at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart as well as their fourth consecutive debut in Top 20 of the Top 200. It spawned two No. 1 singles – “Painkiller” and “I Am Machine” – signaling their 13th overall and fth consecutive No. 1 hits on the Active Rock Radio chart. Moreover, the four-piece consistently averaged a staggering 3.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify – remaining “one of the most listened to rock bands in the world.” In 2012, “Transit of Venus” soared to the Top 5 of the Top 200 and garnered a nod for Best Rock Album of the Year at the Juno Awards. The seminal “One-X” in 2006 notched an RIAA triple-platinum certification. The band’s 2003 album “Three Days Grace” was minted platinum and “Life Starts Now” in 2009 went gold. To date, their veritable arsenal of No. 1 hits includes “Chalk Outline,” “The High Road,” “Misery Loves My Company,” “World So Cold,” “Good Life,” “Break,” “Never Too Late,” “Animal I Have Become,” “Pain,” “Just Like You,” and “Home.” Descendants of Nirvana, early Alice In Chains, and Soundgarden, Seether continues to create modern, urgent and memorable music 15 years into an illustrious and highly successful career. The South African band has amassed 20 Top 5 singles, three platinum records, a fan-beloved gold-selling DVD and scores of No. 1 singles including “Fine Again,” “Fake It,” “Remedy,” “Broken,” “Words as Weapons,” “Country Song,” “Breakdown,” “Rise Above This,” “Same Damn Life,” “Truth,” “Gasoline,” “Driven Under” and their infamous cover of “Careless Whisper.” The band has also been recognized by the South African Music Awards, MTV Africa Music Awards, and Revolver Golden Gods Awards. The relentlessly hard-working out t has averaged 90 performances a year, crisscrossing the globe as headlining mainstays and featured performers on many of the world’s biggest rock festivals. Seether songs are familiar to anyone who plays Madden NFL games or watch the WWE.Shinedown, Three Days Grace to play 98ROCKFEST Photo courtesy of ATLANTIC RECORDSShinedown headlines 98ROCKFEST April 20 at Amalie Arena.Capitol Theatre to present Spyro GyraCLEARWATER – Contemporary jazz icons Spyro Gyra will perform Friday, April 20, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. For more than 40 years, Spyro Gyra have performed for international audiences on five different continents, resulting in sales of over 10 million albums. The band’s 2014 tour showcased their breakthrough “Morning Dance” album. After that year of looking back, they decided to spend 2015 concentrating on their more recent material, playing many songs from their post 2000 releases. The audience reaction was so positive to their recent material that bandleader Jay Beckenstein decided that their albums from that period deserved a little more focus. So, in order to spotlight this innovative and productive period, Spyro Gyra released their latest hit, “The Best of the Heads Up Years,” in 2016. “My hope is that our music has the same effect on the audience that it does on me,” said Beckenstein in a press release. “I’ve always felt that music, and particularly instrumental music, has this non-literal quality that lets people travel to a place where there are no words. Whether it’s touching their emotions or connecting them to something that reminds them of something much bigger than themselves, there’s this beauty in music that’s not connected to sentences. It’s very transportive. I would hope that when people hear our music or come to see us, they’re able to share that with us.” Photo courtesy of CAPITOL THEATRESpyro Gyra makes a tour stop at Capitol Theatre April 20.

A native of Seattle, Hilty moved to New York City after graduating from the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University, and quickly made her Broadway debut as Glinda in “Wicked,” opposite Idina Menzel. She went on to perform the role in both the national tour and in Los Angeles. In 2009, Hilty starred on Broadway as Doralee in “9 to 5: The Musical,” and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Actress in a Musical, a Drama League Award and an Ovation Award for Best Actress in a Musical.

In 2015, Hilty returned to the Broadway stage as Brooke Ashton in “Noises Off.” For her performance, she received a 2016 Tony Award nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play, as well as Drama Desk and Drama League Award nominations. Since Noises Off ended its run in March 2016, Hilty has guest-starred on “Project Runway,” “Dif cult People,” “Brain Dead” and “The Good Wife.” She has released two albums, including “Megan Hilty: Live at the Caf Carlyle” and “A Merry Little Christmas.” She also co-starred in the feature lm “Rules Don’t Apply” from director Warren Beatty.
