By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE During his annual audit presentation to City Council, Peter Schatzel, a partner in the accounting firm Wells, Houser & Schatzel, P.A., told councilors that the city of Seminole "has maintained a very strong nancial position" at their April 24 meeting. He went on to compliment city leaders and staff on how they handle city nances. "I'm pleased to say that of all the cities that we have audited for any length of time, the city of Seminole is one of the best, well administered cities that we have had the opportunity to be associated with as auditors," he said. The city, Schatzel added, has "always been scally responsible" and "has not relied on debt to any great extent." Part of the reason for this nancial position is because of the council's patience when planning project[s] of some consequence," he said. "Instead of going out to get a lot of money, you save for it." The city currently only has one outstanding bond, at $1.8 million, that will be paid off by the end of 2019, he added. The city's accounting records are also "accurate and in very good order." "It's definitely a compliment to all of your staff that you have been very scally responsible," he said. Schatzel said his firm spent more than 300 hours reviewing city records, including all large transactions as well as a random sample of smaller transactions. The city's "financial statements are in accordance with general accepted accounting principles," he said. He told the council that at the end of fiscal year 2017, the city had a balance in its general fund, which is the city's primary fund, that would cover 5.1 months of Seminole's total operating expenses. Last year's balance represented 5.5 months of operating expenses, while there was enough to cover 5.1 months of operating expenses in the fund at the end of 2015. "I think the city has done a very good job as far as the stewardship of the city's assets and I compliment you on that," Schatzel told the council.‘Very strong nancial position’Auditor lauds city’s long-term scal responsibility Tribute to Teachers honors Seminole educatorsPhoto SUBMITTEDThe Seminole Chamber of Commerce recently honored local educators at its annual Tribute to Teachers breakfast.

The agreement is between the county, Dunedin and Rogers Blue Jays Baseball Partnership in Ontario, Canada. The county will use Tourist Development Tax funds of up to $41.7 million to pay about 51 percent of the project cost. Total cost is estimated at just over $81 million. The county will pay its share in three installments, starting with $1.3 million to be allocated in scal year 2018, $14.8 million FY 2019 and the nal payment of $14.8 million in FY 2020. The money will come from the portion of Tourist Development Taxes set aside for capital projects to bene t tourism. The money cannot be used for other purposes. The Dunedin Commission approved the agreement April 23. Now that the county has approved its funding, city staff will complete the necessary paperwork to nalize funding from the state. The city will pay $5.6 million and the state $13.6 million. The Blue Jays' share is $20 million. The team also agreed to pay another $25 million over 25 years for maintenance, operations and repairs. The tri-party deal, which it was called by county staff, continues a long-term relationship with the Blue Jays that began with the team's inception as a Major League Baseball franchise in 1977. The team has used Dunedin as its spring training headquarters for 40 years. The new deal will keep the team in Dunedin and Pinellas County another 25 years. Some of the improvements proposed for the Blue Jays Dunedin Complex include increasing seating capacity to 8,500, additional food and beverage options, a new highde nition video board and expanded parking. It was a long time coming, commented many of the of cials who spoke during the meeting. The city has been asking the county to commit to funding improvements for the Blue Jays for years, as they were needed to keep the team in Dunedin. Negotiations with the team have also been ongoing. The Blue Jays made it clear throughout all the talks that the preference was to remain in Dunedin. And the city, its residents and businesses made it clear that they wanted to keep the team for a number of reasons, including the $92 million in annual economic impact for the county. The team provides jobs. It provides heads in beds for local hotels and it provides exposure of Photo courtesy of TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCILAn artist’s rendering of a renovated Florida Auto Exchange Stadium and training facilities for the Toronto Blue Jays.

4A Community Seminole Beacon, May 3, 2018the county to a large audience in Canada.Support for the deal had been questionable for Commissioner Janet Long; however, testimony for the keeping the Blue Jays in Pinellas from local Dunedin businesses, as well as Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos managed to convince her to make approval for the funding agreement unanimous. Some had questioned whether Tourist Development Tax money should be used to fund stadiums, which is allowable by state statute. After going through the many bene ts spring training brings to the city and the county as a whole, the Commission was convinced. And thanks to a healthy tourism industry the money is available and will likely stay available as Tourist Development Tax collections continues on a record-setting pace. Some concern was expressed that by scal year 2020, the money set aside to pay for capital project from Tourist Development Taxes would be down to only about $3 million; however, staff pointed out that unless something drastic happened, the fund would be replenished with collections the next year. As to what some considered an unequal share being paid by the county more than 50 percent Commission Chair Ken Welch said the Commission had always known the county would have to step in and pay more. He said Dunedin is a small city and unable to pay as much as the city of Clearwater, which has the spring training facilities for the Philadelphia Phillies. Welch also praised the use of a pay-as-you go approach over three years, which keeps the costs down in any one year. "A $40-plus million investment is not too much for a positive step for Pinellas County," he said. The Commission gave earlier approvals to several other capital improvement projects to be paid for with Tourist Development Tax money, including $26 million for Clearwater Marine Aquarium, $6 million for the Museum of American Arts and Crafts Movement, $5.5 million for Ruth Eckerd Hall, $1.9 million for Countryside Sports Complex and $495,000 for Eddie C.

AROUND, from page 3A Home Rule HeroesWaters, Barnhorn honored by Florida League of CitiesSEMINOLE The Florida League of Cities has chosen Seminole's Mayor Leslie Waters and Councilor Thom Barnhorn as two of 75 elected city officials throughout the state to receive the 2018 Home Rule Hero Award. This award recognizes the efforts of city leaders working to protect the Home Rule powers of Florida's cities during the 2018 legislative session. Barnhorn said, "Home Rule institutionalized the idea that local governments should be able to make laws that apply to their cities and their policies. Local elected officials have a better understanding of the needs for its community and its residents. I believe the best government is the one closest to the people." "I am very pleased to receive this honor," said Mayor Waters. "Home Rule is the ability for a city to address local problems through local decision makers without interference from state government." Florida League of Cities President Gil Ziffer said leaders at the city level are among the league's "biggest advocates for municipal issues." Mayor Waters said she appreciates that legislators have scores of important issues to deal with each Legislative Session. "However, my responsibility as mayor is to protect any assault on municipal Home Rule, and to help assure lawmakers do not vote on legislation that could have unintended consequence to cities," she said. Mayor Waters sits on the league's Land and Economic Development Committee, while Barnhorn serves as vice chair of the league's Taxation & Personnel Committee.

Witt, the chief of voluntary service at the Bay Pines Medical Center, spoke April 25 to members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council of the need for volunteers at the center. Witt pointed out the size and scope of the facility. The Bay Pines VA Center is a hospital, a rehab center and a nursing facility. The campus also includes the National Cemetery and a Veterans Benefits Regional office, one of the few places in the country to have all those VA services in one place. Built in 1933, Bay Pines covers 300 acres and 32 buildings. It is such a massive facility the need for volunteers is immense, and Witt says the jobs for volunteers are many and varied. "There are 118 volunteer jobs," he said. "Over 110,000 veterans seek help at Bay Pines each year and last year it took well over a thousand volunteers to keep it moving."Besides its facility on Boca Ciega Bay, Bay Pines has eight outpatient clinics throughout West-Central Florida that stretch from Palm Harbor in the north to Naples in the south and Sebring inland. The veterans that are served by the VA come from a variety of conflicts with the largest number by far from the Vietnam era. Fortythree percent of all veterans come from that era. Fourteen percent of the veterans come from the Desert Storm con ict and 13 percent from the Korean con ict. World War II veterans make up about 10 percent of the veterans getting care at Bay Pines. Witt says they are the most interesting of all. "If you come to visit and pull up a chair next to a World War II veteran, you are going to hear some amazing stories," he said. "They are the greatest patient population ever." Witt said the 1,100 volunteers spent over 170,000 hours helping last year. Translated to money it would amount to well over $5 million. The Bay Pines Voluntary Service is the largest in Florida, said Witt. Volunteer jobs, he said, cover a wide range of things and provide something for just about everyone. "If you have been thinking of becoming a Walmart greeter well we have a better greeter job available," he said. "We have greeters to meet veterans at the door and help bring down the anxiety level of the patient." Other volunteer opportunities include making phone calls to remind patients of upcoming appointments. As well, driving the shuttle carts from the parking lots to whichever building is required. That serves to help patients simply nd their way. Another job is to push wheelchairs for patients who have to move around the campus or inside a facility. Witt pointed out there are other ways to help the VA at Bay Pines if one cannot give time. Donations of personal care items, gift cards or sweatpants and socks are always appreciated. Monetary donations are also accepted. All VA facilities need volunteer help. Since the voluntary service was established in 1946, more than 800 million hours of volunteer work have been provided. This year, nationally, it is expected that 70,000 volunteers will provide 10 million hours of service worth over $300 million. Witt presented a brief video during his talk and in it several volunteers spoke of the return they get by helping. All said they got back much more in satisfaction than they gave. As for Witt, he said it should be the other way around. "They are my boss," he said. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer at Bay Pines can go online to giving.Photo SUBMITTEDNathan Witt, chief of Voluntary Service at Bay Pines VA, speaks to the members of the BIG-C in Madeira Beach.

AUDITOR, from page 1A Councilor Thom Barnhorn said, "I think it's a testament to the leadership we have in the city from us [on the council] all the way to Harry [Kyne, director of the department of administration.]" In other action items, the council: unanimously approved the expenditure of approximately $85,000 in multimodal impact fees for project design and engineering services related to a turning lane improvement project at 70th Avenue and Seminole Boulevard. After conducting a traf c feasibility study in the area, Cardno Inc. recommended the addition of a westbound turn lane. In addition to creating the lane, the project also ultimately includes road widening, milling and resurfacing, drainage modi cations, sidewalk reconstruction, ADA improvements, sign and pavement marking adjustments, signal modifications, and utility relocation. This rst phase of the project includes design, surveying, geotechnical services, and drainage and signalization analysis. tabled a discussion about using $93,000 in Capital Improvement Funds for the demolition, removal and replacement of a playground shade structure at the recreation center. The structure was damaged during Hurricane Irma last fall, said City Manager Ann Toney-Deal, when the canopy fell off and connectors were damaged. She's hopeful that FEMA might partially cover the funds needed for this project. The council had "a few questions" before making a decision on this expense, Mayor Leslie Waters said.


County 5A Seminole Beacon, May 3, 2018Water system maintenance to begin in MayThe method of water treatment for Pinellas County and its wholesale customers will be temporarily modi ed between Monday, May 14, and Friday, June 8. The rst of two short-term changes from chloramine to chlorine disinfection in 2018 is a routine maintenance measure designed to optimize water quality. Those that will bene t from this program include Pinellas County Utilities water customers, as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park and Safety Harbor. The disinfection program is designed to maintain distribution system water quality and minimize the potential for any future problems. There have been no indications of significant bacteriological contamination problems in the system. The water will continue to meet all federal and state standards for safe drinking water. Kidney dialysis patients should not be impacted, but should contact their dialysis care provider for more information about chlorine treatment. Fish owners should not be affected if they already have a system in place to remove chloramines, but should contact local pet suppliers with any questions. Customers may notice a slight difference in the taste and/or odor of the water during this temporary change in treatment. Chlorine was used as the primary disinfectant in the water for more than 50 years prior to 2002. Pinellas County switched to chloramine in 2002 to ensure compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. Many communities using chloramine convert back to chlorine for short periods to maintain system water quality. The second short-term change from chloramine to chlorine disinfection in 2018 will take place from Oct. 1 through Oct. 26. For more information, please visit www. or contact Pinellas County Utilities Customer Service at 727-464-4000.Public workshop scheduled on Airport Master PlanCLEARWATER St. Pete-Clearwater International (PIE) Airport and the Pinellas County commissioners are preparing a comprehensive Airport Master Plan.

To achieve this goal, it is essential to receive input from key stakeholders, including the interested public and surrounding community, and users and tenants of the airport's facilities.

6A Police Seminole Beacon, May 3, 2018 Police beatPinellas deputies investigate drowning of Tampa manST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating what they say appears to be an accidental drowning of a 23-year-old Tampa man on Gandy Beach in St. Petersburg. According to a media release, the drowning occurred about 4:13 p.m. April 28. Deputies say Lino Gomez and his wife 20-year-old Angela Perez were in the water on an in atable oat just south of Gandy Beach in unincorporated St. Petersburg. The tidal current pushed Gomez and Perez's oat into a deep channel that paralleled the beach. As they were trying to paddle back to the beach, Gomez fell off the oat into the water. Perez tried to help Gomez back onto the oat but she also fell into the water. Deputies say Perez was able to grab onto the oat but she lost sight of Gomez who was being swept out with the current. Perez made it back to shore safely and agged down a passing boater who helped search for Gomez. The good Samaritan boater found Gomez oating face down in the water unresponsive. The boater brought Gomez back to shore when a second good Samaritan, 37-year-old Melissa Shaffer of St. Petersburg, performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation until paramedics arrived. Gomez was transported to Tampa General Hospital with life threatening injuries. He was pronounced dead at about 2:10 a.m. April 29. Deputies say neither Gomez nor Perez knew how to swim.Injuries reported in deputy-involved crash in LargoLARGO Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say two people, including a deputy, were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a crash that occurred about 6:03 p.m. April 26 on Seminole Boulevard at Lark Drive Southwest in Largo. According to deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team, 31-year-old Joseph Johnson of Clearwater was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro northbound on Seminole Boulevard when he failed to stop for a red traf c light signal at Lark Drive Southwest in Largo. Deputy Beetz was on-duty and traveling southbound on Seminole Boulevard in a fully marked 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe. Beetz made a left turn on a green arrow, to go east on Lark Drive Southwest from Seminole Boulevard, when he was struck by Johnson. Beetz and Johnson were transported to a local hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries. After Johnson was released from the hospital, he was charged with driving while license suspended and cited for failure to obey traf c control signal and having no vehicle insurance. He was booked into the county jail at 12:56 a.m. April 27. Bail was set at $150. Deputies say it appears that speed may be a factor in the crash.Pinellas deputy injured in Safety Harbor crashSAFETY HARBOR A Pinellas County Sheriff's corporal was injured in a crash that occurred about 7:52 a.m. April 26 just east of the traf c light on State Road 580 and McMullen Booth Road. According to deputies assigned to the Sheriff's Major Accident Investigation Team, Cpl. John Suess IV, 36, was on-duty in his unmarked 2013 Dodge Charger, driving westbound in the median lane on SR 580, in Safety Harbor. Investigators say Suess was stopped for the traf c light on SR 580 at McMullen Booth Road, when 66-year-old Marjorie Nelson, of Safety Harbor also driving westbound on SR 580 in her 2002 Ford Explorer, attempted to change lanes. Nelson failed to see that traf c had stopped for the traf c light and she rear-ended Suess' vehicle, which caused a chain reaction and pushed his vehicle into 19-year-old Amar Basria's, 2017 Honda CRV. Suess was transported to a local hospital by another deputy with minor injuries. Nelson refused medical treatment on scene. Basria and his passenger, Erum Basria, also refused medical treatment on scene. Nelson was issued a traf c citation for careless driving, violation of driver's license restriction (corrective lenses). Deputies say it does not appear that speed or impairment are factors in the crash.Motorcyclist seriously injured in Dunedin crashDUNEDIN Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a crash that resulted in serious injuries for a motorcyclist from Oldsmar. The crash occurred about 7:34 a.m. April 25 near the intersection of State Road 580 and Heather Ridge Boulevard in Dunedin. According to deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team, 55 year-old Jeffrey Shore of Dunedin was driving his 2007 Dodge Ram east on S.R. 580, attempting to make a northbound left turn onto Heather Ridge Boulevard. Traf c in the two westbound lanes of S.R. 580 slowed to allow Shore to make the left turn. At about that same time, 34-year-old Gabriel Dalrymple was driving a 1993 Harley-Davidson motorcycle westbound on S.R. 580 in the curb lane approaching Heather Ridge Boulevard when Shore's truck turned in front of Dalrymple's motorcycle. Dalrymple's Harley-Davidson crashed into the passenger side of Shore's Dodge truck and Dalrymple was ejected off the motorcycle. Investigators say Dalrymple was own to St. Joseph's Hospital for lifethreatening injuries. Shore refused medical treatment at the scene. Dalrymple was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Product Summary: "Our product will be aimed at people who require wheelchairs. It develops a solution for the issue of wheelchair mobility by using a different wheel setup. This will better allow people with wheelchairs to move around urban environments. By using an app to control it, we can both decrease costs for it, and implement additional features for people with other disabilities, such as voice control for those who may not have the dexterity (people with Parkinson's, among others) to control it normally." Second place: NaviGo Lakewood High School Raymond Wong, 12th grade, Israel Graveran, 11th grade, and Kevin Lai, 12th grade. Product Summary: "There are currently no public transportation apps that send live updates for PSTA buses, making it harder for riders to catch buses if the bus is early or they are late. The product will be a mobile application on iOS and Android platforms. It will use the RidePSTA API to pull real-time data on bus routes." Third place: Metero Games Career Academies of Seminole Mary Powell, 10th grade, David Fletcher, 10th grade, and Ashton Anderson, ninth grade. Product Summary: "Many people in coastal communities take for granted how important it is to prepare for hurricanes. Some people don't think that hurricanes will be that bad. Some don't believe that the hurricane will impact them, so they don't adequately prepare. In fact, 32 civilians died during hurricane Irma from causes such as drowning and blunt force injuries that could have been prevented if they had evacuated or prepared correctly. With our serious game, we hope to change people's attitudes concerning hurricanes and give life-saving preparedness tips. We will give the player choices and consequences during situations that frequently happen in hurricanes, and guide them on how they can effectively prevent and prepare for these potentially fatal situations. Essentially, our serious game could save lives." Now in its sixth year, the Foundation's Next Generation Entrepreneurs program celebrates the innovative ideas from high schools students in Pinellas County.

Health & Fitness 13A Seminole Beacon, May 3, 2018Is it wise to remove your wisdom teeth?Usually the last teeth to grow in, the wisdom teeth got their name because they typically grow in between ages 17 and 25 when people are generally "wiser" than at adolescence. Also known as the third molars, there are a total of four, and wisdom teeth are the most common teeth to be impacted (below the gums) as well as the most common to be removed. Today, most jaws are not large enough to accommodate all 32 adult teeth. If your wisdom teeth are erupted (having grown through the gums) or partially erupted (partially grown through the gums) they can be difficult to access due to their position making it a challenge to keep clean. Sometimes food and debris can get lodged in and around those teeth and gums causing pain, swelling, infection called pericoronitis as well as decay. Therefore, it is generally recommended to get these teeth removed. Treatment for issues around wisdom teeth can include warm saltwater or antibacterial rinses, prescribed antibiotics, and pain medication for temporary relief. If problems persist, speak to your dentist about extractions. The sooner the better for removal of wisdom teeth because the roots are not as developed, and the bone is not as dense in younger people. As we get older, healing and recovery tend to take longer. If you plan on having your wisdom teeth extracted, discuss anesthetic and sedation options with your dentist for the most comfortable experience. Most patients prefer to be sedated depending on the dif culty of the extractions and the patient's fear level. Also, plan on some recovery time and a soft diet for a few days. That being said, it's almost summer time and with school out, get those appointments scheduled early if wisdom teeth extraction is on your agenda!

PETERSBURG Bayfront Health St. Petersburg ranked in the top 10 percent of 870 inpatient rehabilitation facilities that quali ed to be ranked in the IRF database of Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation in 2017. "Bayfront's acute rehabilitation team of physician and clinical specialists work hard as a team to achieve great patient outcomes. Patients have a choice, and we strive to be the area's provider of choice for acute rehabilitation services," said John McLain in a press release. McLain is chief executive of cer at Bayfront Health. The rankings were determined by using UDSmr's program evaluation model, a case mix-adjusted and severity-adjusted tool that provides facilities with a composite performance score and percentile ranking drawn from nearly three-quarters of all IRFs in the country. UDSmr's PEM Report Card uses the indicators of ef ciency and effectiveness contained in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Patient Assessment Instrument, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' reporting tool for the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System. The goal of the PEM Report Card is to recognize high-performing facilities for their delivery of quality patient care that is effective, ef cient, timely, and patient-centered. "To recognize the efficient and effective care it provides to its patients, we are pleased to present this award to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg," said Troy Hillman, manager of the Analytical Services Group at UDSMR. "As the creator and caretaker of the nation's largest database of rehabilitation outcomes, and with over 20 years of experience and data, UDSMR continues working with the industry to establish best practices. Development of the PEM Report Card has served as a tool to identify and recognize high-performing facilities, to work with them to learn how they provide ef cient and effective care, and to share what we learn with others to elevate the performance of all. We look forward to working with Bayfront Health St. Petersburg and the other top performing facilities across the country that rank in the top 10 percent to improve care in all inpatient rehabilitation facilities." This is the 11th year that UDSmr has issued these awards. The PEM Report Card was developed as part of a proactive solution to the Institute of Medicine's 2006 recommendation to Congress that every Medicare provider be reimbursed on a pay-forperformance basis. The data used for this report was based on 12 months of 2017 data, drawn from both Medicare and non-Medicare patients. The results were weighted and combined into a single composite score, and each facility was assigned a percentile rank from 0 to 100 relative to the other qualifying IRF subscribers in UDSmr's database. The resulting distribution of the facility PEM scores for UDSmr's IRF subscribers exhibited a normal distribution.Youth soccer club sets tryouts in LargoThe Tampa Bay Rowdies youth soccer club, the Tampa Bay United Rowdies, will conduct tryouts for competitive teams May 7-12 at the Belcher Soccer Complex, 1779 S.

Viewpoints 15A Seminole Beacon, May 3, 2018To the Florida Department of Elections, I am known by the acronym "NPA" no party affiliation. That means I have not registered as a Democrat or Republican. This was a deliberate choice on my part, but it comes with consequences. NPAs will be treated as non-people in the August primaries. We can't cast a ballot for candidates from either of the two major parties, even though the primary determines who appears on the ballot in the general election. The other consequence, as a political operative once explained to me, is that I am targeted by both parties. My phone will ring constantly with suggestions that I vote for this person or that one. And my mailbox will be over-stuffed with yers and pleas from all candidates on the nal ballot. I'm the guy they want on their side. I can live with the second consequence. The rst one, though, is becoming more of a problem for me and the estimated 3.5 million Floridians who have declined to formally choose sides. The Constitutional Revision Commission took a stab at addressing that issue with Provision 62, proposed by Commissioner William Schi no, a Republican from Tampa. It would have allowed voters in November to decide if the state wanted to adopt a so-called "top two open primary" where every candidate appears on one ballot and everybody gets to vote. The top two nishers, regardless of party, then go to the general election. A few states already do this, notably California. The plan passed the Ethics and Elections Committee 6-3, but it was skunked 7-0 in the General Provisions Committee, chaired by Republican Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch. Or, in the parlance of the commission, it was laid on the table. Voters don't get to choose. The result is that we see candidates in both parties run to the extreme left or right in the primary, then disavow much of what they said when the general election rolls around because they have to appeal to the whole state. Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, for instance, spent the early days of his campaign trying to sound like Rambo on steroids talking tough about all the red-meat issues his party's base adores. I think he is a lot more moderate than he has been letting on, but general wisdom is that only the most dedicated voters in each party turn out for the primary in other words, the base. And with challengers Ron DeSantis and more-than-likely Richard Corcoran shooting routinely flames out of their mouths, Putnam is basically forced to prove he won't cave to those lily-livered liberal elites if he is elected. That's no way for anyone to govern. Fun fact: In 2010, when Rick Scott came from nowhere to win the governor's mansion, only 22 percent of registered voters turned out in the primary compared to 49 percent in the general election. In 2016, primary turnout was 22 percent compared to 75 percent in the general. An open system would help moderate some of the primary garbage we hear every time an election rolls around. The same goes for Democrats. Gwen Graham is defending herself from those on the hard left who will settle for nothing less than full support of everything on their agenda. The problem is, most people live somewhere in the middle. That brings us back to the NPA choice a lot of us make. Right now, there are two choices: stay the same, or swallow hard and pick a party. Neither one helps solve the problem. People say they are tired of all the negativity in politics. The CRC had a chance to make a small dent that but laid it on the table instead. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. LETTERS Outside my bedroom window a man with an air blower is walking up and down, directing his nozzle in all directions, with no appreciable effect other than to make an ungodly amount of noise. Plus giving me a topic to write about: the sounds of life. Has anyone ever catalogued the thousands of different sounds that exist? I doubt it. Why bother? A less daunting chore for each of us would be to list the loveliest sounds we can think of, as well as the ones we dislike the most. But even the most unlikeable sounds can be important, and sometimes vital. When triggered, the fire alarm in my condominium threatens to deafen the occupants of all ve oors. But I would not be at peace without its presence. Same thing goes for the angry whine of an oncoming police car or ambulance. Ugly, disgusting sounds in the form of spoken words also can be a warning, especially when uttered by a madman or an elected of cial gone berserk. A sound's reception or effect can depend on its source and timing. Case in point: the first wail of a newborn infant will be like a symphony to the ears of its parents. But later when the baby has a case of colic, its cries will be as unwelcome as someone dragging his ngernails across a blackboard. Which, by the way, was voted as one of the 10 worst sounds we can hear, according to a survey. Another one is the sound of someone vomiting. Also, high in the balloting is the ungodly whine of a power saw cutting through an oak tree branch, especially if it has just fallen on the roof of your new car. If you were forced to give up either your eyesight or your hearing, which would you choose? Hard to say. We learn more from our eyes, but to live in absolute silence could be torture. Especially if you're a nature lover. How many nature sounds can you name? Ocean waves washing up on a beach; a breeze among the trees or through a wheat field; the voices of birds (with some exceptions); gentle rainfall; a Category 5 hurricane blowing your dock into the Gulf of Mexico. (Oops bad example there.) While we're thinking of the blessings of sound, we should not ignore the value of its absence those delightful times when all is quiet and silence reigns. I have often referred to the joy I feel each time I press the "mute" button on my TV remote and thereby squelch a commercial break, a gaseous press conference, or the voice of a kitchen madonna telling me how to prepare a salad of chitlins and collard greens. One reason I love my cat Ellie is that she speaks gently and seldom. In contrast, my sweetheart Carolina Moon gladly puts up with her chihuahua Sparky. He pierces the Gulfport welkin a dozen times a day to warn the populace of a UPS delivery, a wandering front yard possum or a local octogenarian strolling down the street. Allow me to describe the terror and rejoicing that many, if not most, new parents may experience when their rst child comes home from the hospital. You are lled with a mix of love and trepidation. All goes well until one night you arise for your 3 a.m. check of the newborn baby and approach its crib. You lean over to listen and you hear nothing. Zero. Not a breath. Panic lls your heart and mind. But before you call 911 or your spouse, you lean farther into the crib, until your face almost touches your baby's mouth. Please God. Please God. And then you hear the steady faint breathing that was there all the time. Will you ever again hear such a joyful sound from such a tiny source? A couple of "sound" quotes to round this out. For romantics: "The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer." (Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.) For my journalist brethren and sistern: "I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they y by." (Douglas Adams.) Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ White House doctor is downWASHINGTON When he ran for president, candidate Donald Trump promised to hire "the best people" and said he would look at potential cabinet members' "track record, great con dence, love of what they're doing, how they get along with people, references." In many ways, Dr. Ronny Jackson, Trump's choice to be the next secretary of Veterans Affairs, t Trump's list until the doctor pulled his name from consideration Thursday after enduring a torrent of ugly if unsubstantiated allegations, which he denied. Track record, love of the work and references? The rear admiral had worked his way up from serving as a combat trauma doctor to the White House physician. He clearly loved his work, and could boast of glowing praise from President Barack Obama, who wrote, "Ronny does a great job genuine enthusiasm, poised under pressure, incredible work ethic and follow-through. Ronny continues to inspire confidence with the care he provides to me, my family and my team. Continue to promote ahead of peers." Missing from Trump's requirements was an important distinction that his picks be qualified. That ought to top the list for a post that oversees the federal government's second largest department smaller only than the Department of Defense with more than 360,000 employees. In 2016, Trump didn't say he'd pick people just because he likes them but that seems to be the big motivator here. Trump liked Jackson. He especially liked the way Jackson had the White House press corps stammering and too quick to reject good news during a January press conference about the president's good health. Trump recognized Jackson's lack of experience during a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday. "Now, I know there's an experience problem because of lack of experience," he said. But Thursday on "Fox and Friends," Trump suggested no one is quali ed for the job. "You could take the head of the biggest hospital corporation of the world, and it's peanuts compared to the VA," Trump said by phone. "So nobody has experience. You know it's a big monster." Of course, Jackson withdrew from consideration, not because he lacked CEO-type experience, but because of damaging stories about his handing out sleeping pills on foreign trips, alleged drunkenness on the job, including a car wreck, and a toxic management style. Jackson denied the allegations as "completely false and fabricated. If they had any merit, I would not have been selected, promoted and entrusted to serve in such a sensitive and important role as physician to three presidents over the past 12 years." Trump has argued that there was a campaign to smear Jackson, and there is reason to believe the doctor had enemies. A 2012 personnel assessment documented an intra-of ce rivalry between Jackson, then head of the White House Military Of ce, and the then-White House physician. News reports cited unprofessional behavior between the two of cers and low morale overall morale was rated as 2 on a scale of 1-10. A year later, after corrective actions that supported Jackson, the inspector general found that staff rated the unit considerably higher. The White House suggested the toxic work environment was all on the other guy. The same 2013 report also noted the perception among staff that Jackson "had blind ambitions to be the next physician to the president" and his actions were "purely politically driven for his self-advancement." Critics who believed Jackson had overstated Trump's health in January just found another talking point. Ditto those who believe Trump chose Jackson to head the VA because of the glowing health report delivered, as Brookings Institution senior fellow Kathryn Dunn Tenpas noted, with Trumpian "hyperbole." On a human level, the episode left a stain on the 23-year career of a one-time combat physician. "You can't blame the man the way he was getting beat up by anonymous sources and innuendo," said Joe Davis, communications director for the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Jackson's personnel assessments address the toxic work environment issue, but charges that he mixed work with alcohol and was loose with controlled substances need more explanation from the White House. If they are false, the White House should document these reports as irresponsible. The White House should respond, if not for Jackson, then as an act of self-protection. Jackson's example serves as a warning to highly quali ed people that Trump's opposition will go to great lengths to destroy them. Ergo, Tenpas argued, Trump cannot pick people mainly because he likes them and they passed an FBI check. He has to be more careful. He should find a VA head like his Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, she said, who was " awless" in terms of his credentials. Hours after Jackson's announcement, the Senate con rmed Mike Pompeo as secretary of state. Pompeo was a highly quali ed nominee of the Gorsuch mold, and still the White House had to exert muscle to wrangle Republican votes to push him over the hurdle. Note to the White House: Getting nominees through the Senate is not going to get easier, so up your game. Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ or 202-662-7391. Follow @ DebraJSaunders on Twitter.

Shi ett Phone: 727-397-5563 Debra Saunders John Deering is chief editorial cartoonist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the state's largest newspaper. Winner of the National Press Foundation's 1997 Berryman Award, Deering also gained top honors in the 1994 national John Fischetti Cartoon Competition and was the seven-time winner of the Arkansas Press Association's Best Editorial Cartoonist award. Born in 1956 in Little Rock, Deering has been drawing since his childhood fascination with science ction and dinosaurs. He and his wife, Kathy, have a daughter and two sons, and live in Little Rock. He still draws dinosaurs. About the cartoonist Joe Henderson Primary solution was left on tableSupport animalsEditor: It's out of hand! The idea that people can take their pets anywhere and everywhere because they offer support is ludicrous. The situation on aircraft is the worst: people traveling with fake emotional support animals is a growing problem for ight attendants, frequent yers and people with disabilities who have service animals for medical reasons. Airlines are dealing with a growing number of injuries, confrontations and other problems resulting from these support animals. It's not only dogs and cats, but monkeys, parrots, iguanas, peacocks, kangaroos, snakes, turkeys, tortoises, rabbits, goats, wolves, hedgehog, and sheep. I've personally witnessed dogs biting, defecating and yapping. Signs have popped up in airports stating that all pets, except service animals, must be in carriers. It's become a ying zoo! We can thank HUD for allowing emotional support animals who do not need any specialized training and are there to purely give comfort and love. This is a case of government-guaranteed entitlements. What happened to common courtesy and common sense? When folks stepped forward with their peanut allergies, airlines stopped serving them on ights. What about those who are allergic to pet fur? For those who need emotional support I suggest learning meditation, taking medication or staying home. Lil Cromer Belleair


16A Outdoors Seminole Beacon, May 3, 2018FWC discusses Gulf red snapper management; approves changes to tripletail, sheepshead managementAt the April 26 meeting in Fort Lauderdale, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission discussed Gulf red snapper management, including the 40-day Gulf recreational season. The season will run June 11 through July 20. The FWC also approved the creation of a Gulf Reef Fish State For-Hire program for 2018 and 2019. This program will enhance management efforts by requiring for-hire operations that target or harvest certain reef sh in Gulf of Mexico state waters (excluding Monroe County) to report their intention to harvest these species. To learn more about the 40-day recreational red snapper season in Gulf state and federal waters, visit and click on "Saltwater Fishing," "Recreational Regulations" and "Snappers." For-hire operations that do not have a federal reef fish permit but target reef fish in state waters will need to sign up for the Gulf Reef Fish State ForHire program before targeting any of the following species: red snapper, vermilion snapper, gag grouper, red grouper, black grouper, gray trigger sh, greater amberjack, lesser amberjack, banded rudder sh and almaco jack. This effort is part of a fishery-management pilot program also referred to as an Exempted Fishing Permit. The program allows the FWC to manage recreational red snapper harvest in Gulf state and federal waters off Florida in 2018 and 2019. In other business, the FWC approved several changes to the management of tripletail and sheepshead. All approved changes will go into effect July 1. Changes in tripletail management include: Increasing the minimum size limit from 15 to 18 inches total length. Extending all of the FWC's recreational and commercial regulations for this species into federal waters (including the new size limit). To learn more about tripletail regulations, visit by clicking on "Saltwater Fishing." Changes in sheepshead management include: Reducing the recreational bag limit from 15 to 8 sh per person, per day year-round. Creating a recreational vessel limit of 50 sh per vessel, per trip during March and April. Extending all of the FWC's recreational and commercial regulations for this species into federal waters (including the new bag and vessel limits). To learn more about sheepshead regulations, visit by clicking on "Saltwater Fishing." These proactive measures will help conserve both sheries for current and future generations. After listening to public comments and discussing the current and future management of goliath grouper in Florida at the April meeting, the FWC directed staff to continue current goliath grouper research and management, and develop a road map to direct future conservation efforts. They did not pursue a limited harvest.Greater amberjack season open in Gulf state waters The greater amberjack recreational season in Gulf state waters reopened to harvest May 1 and remain open through May 31. The season will reopen again Aug. 1 through Oct. 31. Greater amberjack is overfished and undergoing over shing, and the season has closed increasingly early in recent years due to federal quotas being met or exceeded. This new season structure adopted at the meeting in December will optimize recreational shing opportunities in both the spring and fall while minimizing harvest during the spawning season, helping to rebuild the stock.

Entertainment 3B Seminole Beacon, May 3, 2018If nothing else, “Avengers: In nity War” answers the question “How many superheroes can you cram into one big-budget smackdown?” The answer: “A bunch.” As far as to whether or not the lmmakers can make such a lm attractive to the general masses … apparently they can. Box Of ce Mojo reports that “Avengers: In nity War” shattered records in its opening weekend, taking in $250 million domestically. Worldwide grosses topped $630 million. That suggests that the crowds lling movie theaters are not limited to the loyal members of fandom that faithfully attend comic book conventions. Stan Lee, former editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, has long referred to devoted Marvel fans as “true believers.” This weekend, those long-time enthusiasts were joined by throngs of recent converts. “Avengers: In nity War” drew legions of devotees, old and new, to the box of ce. For the most part, the lm lives up to the hype. Warning for those who have not seen the movie: Read on at your own peril. Though I do not intend to reveal speci c plot points, I can’t guarantee a spoiler-free review. As “Avengers: In nity War” opens in the post Civil War environment, the world’s greatest superhero squad – its membership still evolving – are still committed to protecting the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle. These guys aren’t interested in street-level delinquents and wannabe megalomaniacs (such as MODOK, Baron Helmut Zemo, Klaw, Leader, Mandarin, etc.). They were the special-ops task force called upon when planet-killing enemies threaten humanity. Enter Thanos. Actually, Thanos rst appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe six years ago as the architect of Loki’s nefarious endeavors. The planners and plotters of the MCU have masterfully woven the threads of Thanos’ story throughout the individual movies, showing him manipulating events in his quest to collect all six Innity Stones. It is clear that Thanos intends to use the In nity Stones to do something momentous and universe-changing. And so, the Avengers assemble to face this threat. They are joined by an array of other superheroes, including the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man. Sound like a big showdown? It is. In fact, it’s showdown after showdown after showdown. “Avengers: In nity War” is audaciously larger-than-life, lled with over-the-top battle sequences, relentless action and strong performances. With multiple story threads, this ultimate superhero team crossover incorporates some of the darkest themes of the MCU to date. Even so, Marvel’s distinctive humor is mercifully prevalent, providing much-needed levity that helps offset the more ominous, bleak ideology behind Thanos’ machinations. Visually, it is a mind-blowing spectacle. In terms of the prevailing storylines that converge in Avengers: In nity War,” it is as close as you can get to Shakespearian from material that originated in the pages of mid-20th century comic books. Its tragedies are moving. Its sense of nality is shocking. And yet … “Avengers: In nity War,” though outstanding, is not the end of this story. Its cliffhanger ending is a mix of hope and sorrow. For now, audiences can only speculate how the next lm will resolve all the unanswered questions. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the lm does offer some clues that will fuel that speculation. The sequel is set to be released on May 3, 2019. It is reportedly the nal Phase Three lm of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Additional lms are planned, but the MCU landscape will likely be quite different moving forward. Here are four reasons “Avengers: Infinity War,” though not the best lm in the MCU to date, is such an impressive achievement. 1. Thanos – Brilliantly depicted by Josh Brolin, this is not your run-of-the-mill bad guy. The guy has serious issues with the nature of the universe. He desires power, but for the usual reasons. Brolin manages to portray both his madness and his pain. 2. Thor – Chris Hemsworth has been playing this character since 2011’s “Thor.” It was in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok” that the Asgardian’s quirky humor reached its maturity. In “Avengers: In nity War,” his wit and sarcasm help relieve the tension without undermining the urgency of the overall con ict. 3. Crossover teams – Marvel comic book fans have always loved unusual mashups. Some Bronze Age titles capitalized on this paradigm. Each issue of “Marvel Team-Up” paired Spider-Man with a different character. “Marvel Two-in-One” did the same with Fantastic Four member The Thing. In “Avengers: In nity War,” audiences get to see some new superhero pairings, including Iron Man and Doctor Strange tag-teaming some of Thanos’ minions. 4. The juggling Russos – As directors, Anthony and Joe Russo juggled dozens of characters in a massive ensemble cast, multiple storylines and long-established story threads dating back 10 years on lm (and much longer in comic books) with remarkable skill. Considering the frequent scene shifts, the Russos managed to give voice to all of the characters who needed to be heard. For more movie news, visit Lee Clark Zumpe is TBN entertainment editor.

Now, these Southern rock icons are embarking on the band’s nal sortie, taking to the road one last time for the Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour. The tour will kick off Friday, May 4, at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach before heading to the Tampa Bay area for a performance Saturday, May 5, 6 p.m., at Mid Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre, at the Florida State Fairgrounds, 4802 U.S. 301 N., Tampa. Tickets start at $15. Call 813-740-2446 or visit The tour will cross the country throughout the summer over Fridays and Saturdays to give fans one last memorable night of classic American rock and roll. “It’s hard to imagine, after all these years, the band that Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins and myself started back in Jacksonville, would resonate for this long and to so many generations of fans. I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many,” said Gary Rossington in a press release. Rossington is an original and founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd. “We’ve been blessed by these great songs and the messages they carry to the fans,” said Johnny Van Zant. “It’s been a true honor to try and ll in my brother’s footsteps for the past 31 years, keeping the music and his spirit alive.” In addition to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, the May 5 concert in Tampa also will feature performances by Jimmie Vaughan, Blackfoot and Bobby Lee Rodgers. The tour derives its name from “The Last of the Street Survivors,” Lynyrd Skynyrd’s new song, as well as the band’s fth studio album Street Survivors that is certified multi-Platinum by the RIAA and includes the Platinum-certi ed single, “What’s Your Name.” The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour marks a big moment for the three generation of fans, as the band has been consistently touring since it took a decade off in 1977. The iconic group is widely known for their live performances that usually include their beloved, elongated version of “Free Bird,” most often played at the end of their set, and their live albums including their multi-Platinum certi ed “One More from the Road.” The Southern rockers are best known for the RIAA Platinum-certified “Sweet Home Alabama” and self-proclaimed signature song “Free Bird,” that Rolling Stone said was “easily the most requested live song in existence.” With more than 30 million units sold over their career, the band has become a cultural icon that has spanned five decades. With everlasting hits such as “Simple Man,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “What’s Your Name,” “Call Me The Breeze,” “You Got that Right,” and more, Rolling Stone named Lynyrd Skynyrd one of its 100 Greatest Bands of All Time. Original members Ronnie Van Zant, Bob Burns, Allen Collins, Gary Rossington, and Larry Junstrom formed the band in 1964. Originally known as My Backyard, the band changed to its famous name in the early 1970s, and became popular in the Jacksonville area, where the original members lived. They signed with Sounds of the South Records in 1972, and released their self-titled disc the following year. The album that featured “Free Bird,” arguably the most-recognized single in the Southern rock genre, has sold more than 2 million units since its release. Later down the road the band recorded iconic tracks “Sweet Home Alabama” and “What’s Your Name.” The band’s story took a tragic turn in October 1977 when a plane crash took the lives of Van Zant, Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines, and several members of the band’s road crew. The band took a decade-long hiatus before reuniting for a tour and live album, “Southern by the Grace of God.” Since then, the band has toured and recorded extensively, with their most recent release being “Last of a Dyin’ Breed.” The band’s current lineup includes original member Rossington, Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.Lynyrd SkynyrdSouthern rock icons say goodbye to lifelong fans with Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour Photo courtesy of PATRICIA KOO PHOTOGRAPHYLynyrd Skynyrd takes the stage May 5 at Mid Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre as part of the Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour.Capitol to present Kris Kristofferson May 5CLEARWATER – Multiple Grammy Award winner Kris Kristofferson will perform Saturday, May 5, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $40. Call 727-791-7400 or visit After struggling in Music City for several years, Kristofferson achieved remarkable success as a country songwriter at the start of the 1970s. His songs “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down” and “For the Good Times,” all chart-topping hits, helped rede ne country songwriting. By 1987, it was estimated that more than 450 artists had recorded Kristofferson’s compositions. His renown as a songwriter triggered Kristofferson’s successful career as a performer and that, in turn, brought him to the attention of Hollywood, leading to his ourishing career as a lm actor. Kristofferson has acted in more than 70 lms. In 1977, he won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in “A Star Is Born.” He’s appeared in cult favorites including the Blade trilogy, “Lone Star,” “A Soldier’s Daughter Never Cries,” “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” “Blume In Love,” “Cisco Pike” and “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.” Recent lms include “Fast Food Nation,” “Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story,” “The Jacket,” “Silver City,” “He’s Just Not That in to You” and “Dolphin Tale.” Many would have hung their hat by now. Instead, Kristofferson barely has paused for breath. He’s released several recent high watermarks including the increasingly intimate “A Moment of Forever” (1995), “The Austin Sessions” (1999) and “This Old Road” (2006) and he produced some of his nest work with the deeply personal “Closer to the Bone” (2009) and “Feeling Mortal” (2013). Kristofferson has reached living legend status, but that hasn’t changed or hindered his creativity. His current CD, “The Cedar Creek Sessions,” was recorded live at Austin’s Cedar Creek Recording Studio in June 2014. Released in time for Kristofferson’s 80th birthday in 2016, the double-CD set is a snapshot of the legendary songwriter in the twilight of his life. In addition to many other awards, Kristofferson is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, winner of the prestigious Johnny Mercer Award from the Songwriter Hall of Fame and was honored with the American Veteran’s Association’s Veteran of the Year Award in 2002. In 2007, Kristofferson was honored with the Johnny Cash Visionary Award from Country Music Television and in 2009 BMI lauded Kristofferson with the Icon Award. He received the Frances Preston Music Industry Award from the T.J. Martell Foundation in March 2012. In 2014, Kristofferson was honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
