St. Petersburg College has teamed up with Pinellas County educators and business, community and faithbased leaders to create "educational ecosystems" for K-12 students to prepare them for success in school and life. The Pinellas County Education Ecosystem, as school of cials explained during the reception, is based on the idea that it takes a community to educate a child. The rst ecosystem was started in Seminole "This experience being in the Seminole ecosystem has been amazing," said Wendy Bryan, principal of Seminole Middle School. The ecosystem program was launched as grassroots effort in 2013 among five school principals and their School Advisory Committee members who wanted to broaden their impact with students. Since then the ecosystems have been operating in Seminole, St. Petersburg and Tarpon Springs with additional ecosystems planned in other areas of the county. According to literature distributed that evening, educational ecosystem activities target student success on many levels, such as regular principal's breakfasts, parent and school workshops to discuss transitioning to high school, college campus tours for elementary, middle and high school students, SPC’s ‘educational ecosystem’Collaborative program helps many Pinellas County students nd clear paths Photo by TOM GERMONDFourth and Fifth grade students come to Bauder Elementary School before classes one day a week and study with their music director.

See ECOSYSTEM, page 4A By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE The Bay Pines Boulevard Landscape Rehabilitation Project will move forward after the Seminole City Council accepted a bid on the project made by Morelli Landscaping, Inc. at its May 8 meeting. The project will span from Long Bayou Bridge to State Route 666 and the Seminole Boulevard overpass and includes the installation of nine 20-feet tall Medjool date palms in the medians along this roadway as well as ornamental landscaping. City Manager Ann Toney-Deal said that there's "an opportunity in the medians to really improve that corridor." Morelli's bid for the landscaping project came in just under $75,000, which was the amount of a state Department of Transportation grant the city was awarded last year, said Toney-Deal. She added that she was "very happy" that they were able to complete this project "within the con nes of the grant that we received." Morelli was the only contractor to bid on the project. This vendor is awarded the majority of the DOT projects in the area, said Jeremy Hockenbury, director of the Public Works Department. These types of projects are the company's "specialty," he added. "He's local and the DOT respects him." At the same meeting, councilors also approved a list of 2018 goals. The goals include purchasing property near Seminole City Park and on Seminole Boulevard if such properties become available; enhancing holiday decorations; purchasing a Bobcat skid loader for Public Works; consider the use of Penny for Pinellas money to purchase new cameras and speakers for City Hall; focusing on improvements to the 113th Street, Park Boulevard and Seminole Boulevard corridors; study neighborhood identity and branding programs in other communities; creating a redevelopment plan for Blossom Lake Park; and initiating planning for the city's 50th anniversary celebration, which takes place in 2020.

Jeremy Newton, city of Seminole re inspector Sonya Mugenski, re ghter/EMT Adir Yacoub and re ghter/paramedic Ryan Gregg in front of Engine 30 at the May 12 Fire Ops 101 training program in Clearwater. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Fire departments and firefighter organizations from across Pinellas County came together for the ninth annual Fire Ops 101 training program May 12 at St. Petersburg College's Fire and Public Safety Training Center in Clearwater. The program isn't designed to train re ghters, though. Instead, it's geared toward community leaders who have no formal re training, said Seminole Fire Rescue Chief Heather Burford. "It's a way for us to educate elected officials and prominent folks who are in our community," she said. Lt. Jeremy Newton, president of Seminole Professional Fire ghters Local 2896, added, "It's set up for city leaders, city officials, administration or even members of the community involved in politics and decision making so they get a little taste of all the different things we do. They get a better sense of what we do and see we're not just sitting around in our recliners all day." Nearly 50 individuals from throughout the county participated in this year's program, which featured four hands-on scenarios for them to experience. One scenario had attendees participating in a vehicle rescue, utilizing a cutter and spreader better known as "the jaws of life" during a wrecked vehicle extrication. "They can actually use the jaws of life' and work on cutting open a window and get a feel for what using that gear weighs and feels like, and what that equipment feels like," Burford said. During the Emergency Medical Services segment, attendees learned about becoming an EMS provider and practiced hands-on CPR techniques on a dummy. In the search-and-rescue scenario, participants entered a "burning" building to search for victims. "As soon as the door closes, it's pitch black," said Jim Millican, a division chief for Lealman Fire District and Fire Ops 101's public information of cer. "You can't see your hand in front of your face. They have to touch and feel their way around." Seminole Fire Rescue partnered with the Pinellas Park Fire Department for the fourth scenario, re operations, where participants entered a "burning" building with the re hose to extinguish a " re."

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018mentoring programs, events that feature motivational speakers and annual collaborative meetings to evaluate progress and other programs. Bryan and three other principals from Seminole area schools discussed different aspects of the ecosystem, such as educational eld trips. Lisa Bultmann, principal of Bauder Elementary School, who has been a part of the Seminole ecosystem since its onset, said children loved the visits to the college. "Both students and teachers are very inspired," she said. "We also have quite a few parents that come, and parents love the opportunity to visit the college campus." For teachers, the experience reminds them that they are a piece of an educational journey for a child, she said. "It makes us realize we have to be intentional about the things we do each and every day we do with children because we want them to have all the choices and opportunities that they can have in their lives," Bultmann said. Bryan said she likes to picture a middle school as a "middle puzzle piece that puzzle piece that ts things together." In middle schools, children are nding themselves, she said. "They are adolescents; they are at the most amazing time in their life," she said For the Seminole ecosystem, school of cials were able to go to the elementary schools and talk to the parents and the kids. They were able to arrange meetings with local high school principals. The students wanted to hear what they have to say because they are excited about high schools, she said. Through the ecosystem, planning for the children's future for when they are done with school starts in kindergarten, she said. "It's a true blessing for your community of Seminole," she said. Jesse Coraggio, vice president for institutional effectiveness and academic services at SPC, asked Thomas Brittain, principal of Seminole High School, how the relationships he has built in the ecosystem contributed to the dramatic increase in the graduation rates. Brittain said the idea is not to reproduce the wheel. "What are they doing at the elementary school? What are they doing at the middle school so that we are not going over the same material over and over again," Brittain said. "What are our strengths, what are our weaknesses? When we have our teachers together and collaborate like that, that's when we have success." Marti Giancola, principal at Pinellas Technical High School, said her school is proud to be part of the ecosystem. A lot of emphasis is placed on career choices at her school, she said. "I feel like what we have done, what we have been able to contribute and what the ecosystem has meant for Pinellas Technical High School at Seminole is that we have been able to round out a powerhouse of educational opportunities for Seminole students," Giancola said. The college has invited all fifth graders from the eight elementary schools in the greater Seminole area to come to the digitorium to have a conversation about the importance of college and undergo experiences so they can see what a college campus looks like. More than 3,300 fth graders have come to the college in the past ve years for a half day, Coraggio said. Coraggio discussed efforts to help students take the speci c courses and have the experiences they need when they graduate from high school to have a clear path on deciding what they want to do when they grow up. "That's so important especially today when we have jobs changing so much and it's really about understanding those core skills students need to have," Coraggio said. "Really giving them a path a path to improving their lives." Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

PETERSBURG The fifth annual "LiFT Your Spirits at the Preakness" Party, a Preakness Stakesthemed mixer and auction fundraiser for Seminole's LiFT Academy and LiFT University, is set for Saturday, May 19, 5 to 10 p.m., at The Coliseum, 535 4th Ave. N. LiFT is a not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to students with neurodiversities. Between LiFT Academy, which caters to students in grades K through 12, and its college program, LiFT University, the school had around 125 students enrolled last year. Jodie Miller, director of development, expects this number to continue to grow. This year's fundraiser will benefit not only an expansion of LiFT University, but also a new postgraduate program, Miller said. LiFT University already offers its students handson, "real world experience," she said. The program prepares students for entering the workforce through classes and the opportunity to run micro-businesses, including CafÂŽ Leo at the school and The Morning LiFT, a breakfast cart for staff. The school plans to expand into other areas of business, including horticulture, culinary arts, creative creations and grounds maintenance. LiFT is also raising the funds to add a Practical Assessment Exploration System (PAES) lab at the university. PAES curriculum takes the handson experience offered by LiFT even further through simulated work environments in five work areas: business and marketing, consumer service, construction and industrial, computer technology, and processing and production. Next year, LiFT will also introduce a post-graduate program for its recently graduated university students. This will be a part-time program, Miller said. Many LiFT graduates go on to nd part-time work, but still need to work on social interaction and life skills, she added. This post-graduate program will address those topics. This year's fundraiser will benefit both of these programs. Those attending will view the Preakness race and Preakness/Kentucky Derby attire is encouraged. Awards will be given to the best-dressed man and the ladies' hat contest winner. The event also includes open bars, live music, a grande gourmet buffet, and silent and live auctions. Tickets are $150 per person. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

FIRE OPS, from page 1A and they see how hard it is to work their way around corners with it and find their way around, all while they're supposed to be crawling on their hands and knees," Burford said. During this exercise, which Burford called "a man-power intensive evolution," participants used the hose from Seminole's Engine 30, which was set up at the event throughout the day. She added, "It's pretty extensive. There's a lot of actual physical work that [participants] can do. We don't push anybody into doing anything they shouldn't do. Some of these folks are very senior, not in great shape. It's hard work." Millican said, "It gives public officials the opportunity to see what we do well, a small part of what we do. They're in the gear, doing what we do for hours sometimes in just 15 minutes. But it gives them an idea." Several Seminole councilors and city staff members have participated in Fire Ops 101 in the past. This year, the city had one participant, Sonya Mugenski, a re inspector. She called the event "super intense" but also "a really cool experience." She added, "My adrenaline [was] rushing As a civilian fire inspector, completely non re, it's amazing to do this. After going through the building and doing the extrication, I never realized how much work and physical labor all the [ re ghters] do. I knew they did a lot and it was super physical, but I guess I didn't realize how physical until [participating in] this."Seminole Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Bill Morelli, center, instructs participants prior to the re operations exercise led by Seminole and the Pinellas Park Fire Department.

BAY PINES, from page 1A annual retreat in January, is "a uid document" that can be amended at any time if the council decides to do so. Several of the goals, speci cally those that address major corridor and signage improvements, will likely be combined, she added. The council also authorized a budget amendment to increase the legislative, administration and Public Works accounts by $1.5 million through the reallocation of funds from the scal year 2016-2017 fund balance. This includes $344,000 to prepay for the fiscal year 2019-2020 CIP obligation; $251,000 to replace generators at City Hall and the Community Building; $300,000 for park land acquisition; $100,00 for lighting replacement at Tennis Court Park; $98,000 to replace the shade structure at the Seminole City Park playground; $181,000 for park development; and $46,000 for engineering costs at Waterfront Park. This also allows for an increase of $113,000 to the Administration Department Interfund Transfer Account to fund the city's share of Fire Station 32 construction and $86,000 to correct an overpayment by Pinellas County for this project.


5A Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018 051718


6A County Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018County sends SRO funding back to school boardCommission stands ready to help as last option only By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Funding school resource officers should be the responsibility of the School District and the state, Pinellas County commissioners concluded after a lengthy discussion on the matter May 8. However, they stand ready to help as a last resort because, "They're our kids, too," said Commission Chair Ken Welch and Commissioner Dave Eggers. Gov. Rick Scott signed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act into law in early March. It requires a Safe School Officer at every school in the state. Since that time, Pinellas County school of cials and Sheriff Bob Gualtieri have been scrambling to comply with the new law in time for the new school year, which begins in August. Gualtieri talked to the County Commission March 20, asking for assistance to pay for more deputies to meet the new law. He said 101 new school resource officers are needed 81 for elementary schools, which currently don't have SROs, and 18 for charter schools. Ten more are needed at high schools to meet the one of cer per 1,500 students guideline. An additional 31 relief SROs are needed to cover assigned of cers, who are sick or on vacation or other reasons not to be on the job. Plus, 10 supervisors are needed. Gualtieri estimated the cost at about $20 million with a gap in funding available from the state, School District, Sheriff's Office and municipal police department estimated at $12.4 million. The total didn't include the $11.2 million in startup costs the sheriff said also was necessary. The School District is now offering to pay $58,000 for new SROs at a total cost of just over $6.4 million, which includes nearly $1.87 million for the District's police operations. According to a letter from School Superintendent Michael Grego to Gualtieri, the District will use reserves to pay the $2.5 million difference in cost versus the money provided by the state. When Gualtieri first brought the problem to the Commission, the information available was that the School District didn't have the money to pay for extra SROs and it would not be able to hold a referendum to ask taxpayers to pay more. County commissioners seemed willing to help. But as things evolved, information about the District's ability to pay turned out not to be quite accurate. Apparently, the School District could hold a referendum this year, it just prefers not to. In addition, it has $46 million in unrestricted reserves to pay the additional cost at least for now, according to County Administrator Mark Woodard. Gualtieri said when discussions rst began, the School District told him it couldn't hold a referendum until 2020, which he said was an important distinction. "I was told couldn't," he said. "Won't versus don't want to versus can't." He said he was willing to "help someone out who can't who has a de cit hole that can't be lled then I nd out subsequently, that information is not correct." Still there is a $2.7 million gap in the money the School District is offering to pay and what Sheriff Gualtieri says he needs to comply with state law, not including startup costs. And the sheriff says he is running out of time to get enough law enforcement personnel hired, trained and ready to go when school starts Aug. 13. He said the School Board and superintendent had decided to go with SROs, armed law enforcement of cers, instead of considering use of the Guardian Program, which would comply with the state mandate to put a Safe School Of cer in every school. Safe School Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri talks to County commissioners May 8 about issues complying with state law to put a Safe School Of cer in every school by August. Officers do not have to be a law enforcement of cer; however, they do have to go through 140 hours of training. They can be school personnel but not teachers. Gualtieri agrees with the District that rst responders at the schools should be law enforcement of cers. "But you have to pay for that," he said. "If you can't drive a Cadillac, you have to get something else. We need someone on campus with a gun that can protect the kids." He said the Guardian Program wasn't the best option, but it was a viable one. Plus, the School District has its own police department and pays SROs $30,000 for a 10-month contract, Gualtieri says. The District is proposing to take over the SRO program within the next 12-18 months. And that causes another dilemma for the Sheriff's Office, which is actively recruiting for SROs.

County 7A Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018is actively recruiting. The sheriff questions whether the District can hire 60-70 of cers in time and he is concerned about hiring people for a job at the Sheriff's Of ce that might not exist in a year. He's not sure he would be able to nd another position for everyone. Woodard questioned who should absorb the extra cost. The County has been paying $1.3 million for SROs provided by the sheriff for years. The Commission questioned whether it should continue to pay, especially in light of the potential for reduced revenue if voters approve an additional homestead exemption in November. Eggers pointed out that however the new SROs are funded, it is county residents that are really footing the bill. "This is a statewide issue imposed by the state legislature. They created the problem," said Commissioner Janet Long, adding that legislators haven't had any discussions on hardening schools "so crazy people can't get in." Long thinks the state legislature and the School District should take care of the problem. She also believes that the Commission has already stepped up and paid for things that should be paid for by the state and School District. The commission raised the Health Department millage rate this year to help pay to put a nurse in every school. "At some point, we have to say enough is enough," she said. "I'm sick of the constant ask." Commissioner Pat Gerard said as far as is known, no one other county commission in the state is stepping up to help pay for SROs. She said it wasn't something she would want to do permanently. Welch said the Commission would have to vote to raise the millage to pay for it. Commissioner Charlie Justice said he would be willing to talk about it after the School Board had explored all its options. "The School District needs to move forward," Welch agreed. "We stand by if there is a way we can help. But they have the capacity. They have reserves." "I don't like playing poker with kid's lives," Eggers said. "This falls on them completely." Gualtieri said if the School Board didn't decide to go with a referendum, he would have to advocate for the Guardian Program. Even if the District hires its own (SROs), it still requires money on a temporary basis of one year to 18 months, he said. If the School District is not willing to pay, the Guardian Program will have to be the way, he said. "When school starts, we have to have a gun on every campus," Gualtieri said, adding that he didn't want to "stand up" the Guardian Program until he had "done everything I possibly can do."

She can be reached at SRO, from page 6A Pinellas County reveals 2018 EMS Professionals of the Year By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners proclaimed May 20-26 as Emergency Medical Services Week and presented the 2018 EMS Professionals of the Year awards during the May 8 meeting. The award for Emergency Medical Dispatcher went to Sandy Stoinski, public safety telecommunicator III, Pinellas County Emergency Communications/Regional 911. The award for Emergency Medical Technician went to Aaron Dill, eld training of cer/EMT, Sunstar Paramedics, and the award for Paramedic went to Stephen Bailey, lieutenant/paramedic, Largo Fire Rescue. They each received a small monetary reward from Pinellas Credit Union, which has supported the program for 28 years. The narrator for a video introducing the awardees said, "911 telecommuncators are often the rst of the rst responders. The role requires staying cool under pressure and being the calm during the storm." That's the reason Stoinski, a 20-year veteran telecommunicator, received this year's award. An example of the work she does happened Sept. 10, 2017, during Hurricane Irma when she helped the mother of a child who was having an asthma-related emergency. Storm conditions were too dangerous to send an ambulance. "I talked to her for a little while and tried to use the tools I have as an EMS (emergency medical dispatcher) to help her," Stoinski said in the video. The goal was to "keep him going until rescue could respond," she said. "Eventually, I ran out of options, and I was so worried about this little boy," she said. "The only thing I could think of was to transfer (the mother's call) to an actual paramedic." The paramedic talked to the mother over the phone and offered "old school remedies" she could try. "I guess between all of these steps, we actually saved this little boy's life," Stoinski said. "And there's nothing better than that. That feeling." "Known for being punctual, meticulous and always Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County's Emergency Medical Services Professionals for 2018 are, from left, Lt.

8A County Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018ready to help in case of an emergency," is how the narrator described Dill and the reason he was named EMT of the year. He is also known for his empathy for his patients. During transports, he asks patients if their homes are locked or if their pets are cared for and will nd a friend or loved one who can help. He stays focused on the wellbeing of others. "Just helping people every day whatever that is that they need," Dill said in the video. "If they just need some comforting words or they need some actual intervention. Whatever I can do to help them to make them better." Dill's decision to become an EMT was in part to honor his late father and make his younger sister proud. "I wanted to be a positive role model for her and someone she could look up to," he said. "Something like this profession means a lot to me in that regard." "Serving the public is in his blood," the narrator said in introducing Lt. Bailey, paramedic of the year. His father is a firefighter and his mother is a nurse, meaning Bailey is "continuing the family business." He is both a re lieutenant and registered nurse. And he spends a lot of time in the classroom teaching others. Classes he teaches include CPR, orientation for new medics and continuing education to veteran medics. "Anything really that has to do with the medical side of things, I try to delve right into and learn everything about it and have the opportunity to come in and teach it," Bailey said in the video. He believes passing on what he has learned to other paramedics makes the entire community safe. "The citizens who live here actually deserve the highest quality of care and that's something we want to provide them," he said. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

Outdoors 9A Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018Make an early start to maximize opportunitiesSummer is upon us and it won't be long before anglers and sh alike begin to feel the heat. It's time to get out early in order to maximize your opportunities. That rst hour of safe light before the sun rises can be spectacular. If you are tarpon shing, this is when you will nd schools of sh laying so close to the surface that their tails look like sickles slicing through the waters The beach tarpon migration is in full swing. Each day will have more and more sh traveling through our area as they begin to form spawning aggregations. To hook up, stage your boat a cast length away from the approaching fish. Cast pinfish, pumpkin seeds, thread ns and pass crabs either free-lined or suspended underneath a oat. This weekend's new moon outgoing tides will have the crabs ushing out of the bays. Look for the tarpon to stage up heavily at pass bridges and the 90-foot hole at Egmont Key. Drift live crabs with the tide near the surface or slightly weighted with a split shot for best results. Catch and release snook shing is excellent this time of year, and these big sh can be targeted both day and night. The snook bite should be good on both the incoming and outgoing tides this weekend. Target pass shoals and jetties for some trophy-sized snook. Live grass grunts or pin sh are big sh baits. You can either free-line them right close to the structure or weight them on the bottom just off the rocks. Use 30or 40 pound leaders so the sh can be landed quickly and released unharmed. Offshore waters have been crystal clear recently. Fishing for mangrove snapper and king sh can be tricky in these conditions. However, amberjack don't seem to be too leader shy. Schools of amberjack can be found holding over wrecks in 70 to 100 feet of water. Chumming with live pilchards can really re these sh up. Other live bait options would be pin sh and fresh-caught thread n herring.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at To get a sh photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772. Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein The great outdoors Boat host volunteers sought for annual eventST. PETERSBURG Boat host volunteers are currently being sought for the sixth annual Boat Kids Event, set for Saturday, May 19. Every year a group of local business leaders and boating enthusiasts pool their resources to provide special needs individuals and their families with a fun- lled day trip aboard a caravan of boats to Caladesi Island. Organizers invite those in the community to get involved by either becoming a boat host or by becoming a sponsor of the event. Boat hosts provide their own boat and transport a family for the day, navigating from the Dunedin Marina to Caladesi Island, helping their guests enjoy the day on the water. Event organizers also are seeking those interested in making a donation or becoming an event sponsor. Supplies such as T-shirts, food, beverages, paper products and sunscreen are needed. Boat Kids was organized to initiate and provide the opportunity for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and developmental disabilities, and their families/guardians to interact with one another in a sports outing event. The goal is to help reduce anxiety and help learn different ways of expressing feelings and relating to others in a safe and natural outdoor environment under close supervision. Event sponsors include Waters Wealth Management of Raymond James, Statement Marine, Olde Bay CafŽ, Special Needs, ParrotDise Express Boat Tours, Panera Bread, TAPS Restaurant Bar & Lounge, Publix, West Marine, Performance Foodservice, TradeWinds Island Resorts, TSE Industries, and Moretrench.

The train ride was an hour, and we had to walk about 15 minutes on the boardwalk to get to Bay 10. The boardwalk smelled of cotton candy and hot dogs, and the famous roller coaster, the Cyclone, raced up and down the tracks and all you heard were the screams of the people as the Cyclone sped faster and faster. When we nally reached Bay 10, we spread our blanket on the beach and jumped into the cool water. When we returned to the beach, a bunch of boys had their blanket close to ours. They started to talk to us and we told them we lived an hour away in South Brooklyn. However, these boys lived close to Coney Island and told us if they didn’t have enough money to ride the train, they could walk home. On that day, we met quite a few of these boys and one whom I eventually married. His name was Eddie, but I didn’t care for him that summer. He was just a boy I knew; I didn’t date him or any of his friends. A whole year passed, and I once again went to Bay 10. I was now almost 16 and when I saw Eddie that summer, my feelings towards him changed. We began dating and it was not easy because I lived an hour away. All that winter, we only saw each other on the weekend because we were still in school. Eddie would take the train to see me, get back on the train to take me to the movies, take me home and then make the return trip back to Bensonhurst. His parents thought he was crazy. Why couldn’t he nd a girl in his own neighborhood? The following spring, Eddie got his driver’s license; he got his father’s car and said good bye to the subway. We both graduated at the same time and I went to his prom which was held at the Waldorf Astoria. I wore a strapless dress and a sparkling tiara in my hair. After the prom, we went to the Copacabana where Paul Anka was appearing. The whole night was beautiful and memorable. Eddie and I were married in my church on July 4, 1964. During the course of ve years, we had three children and are the grandparents of two granddaughters and three grandsons. In July, we will celebrate our 54th anniversary. Who would have guessed that a chance meeting on the beach so many years ago would have brought us together and cemented our love? Eddie and Linda GentileHow did you and your signi cant other meet? On a train, on a plane? At school or work? Was it a blind date or are you childhood sweethearts? We want to hear your stories! Contact editor Logan Mosby at for more details!


Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018While it unquestionably is the right time for Richard Corcoran to go home to Land O'Lakes, as he promised to do if he didn't run for Governor, that doesn't mean he will stay there. At age 53, Corcoran has a lot of hop left on his political fastball. I would be stunned if we don't see him in a signi cant role if Adam Putnam is elected Governor this fall. It became clear in recent weeks that a Corcoran candidacy was attracting sti ed yawns from the electorate. I'll give him credit for seeing the landscape as it really was and not pushing a losing hand. Aligning with Putnam was the smart play for him, and we'll see how that unfolds. I'm not saying there was a quid-pro-quo between Putnam and Corcoran that led to the outgoing Florida House Speaker's exit Wednesday from a race he never of cially entered. But his rapid endorsement of Putnam means we shouldn't be surprised if Corcoran shows up somewhere in a Putnam administration. For instance, would anyone be shocked if he took a prominent role in education leadership? Those aren't elected positions, and Corcoran is passionate about changing the way Florida's children receive their education. He is a lawyer, so he can go back to that full-time if he chooses. He is a family man with growing children, so staying closer to home would have appeal. His political expertise would be in demand if he wants to do some consulting. Obviously, all that is speculation until we see how the election shakes out. And while pundits are combing through the story of Corcoran's gambit looking for deeper meaning, I doubt it will have much impact on the Republican primary or general election. Corcoran had raised a lot of money and spent time trying to build drama for what looked like a commitment to run, but his campaign that technically wasn't a campaign didn't go anywhere. It wasn't happening. It's interesting how someone who spent as much time in the headlines as Corcoran couldn't penetrate the public consciousness. His name recognition, for good or not, should have been considerable. Political writers penned a lot of stories about Corcoran, and the impact of his two years as Speaker was considerable. Florida's public-school leaders basically spit on the ground when his name is mentioned. He was an unapologetic antagonist to the education status quo, and that meant shepherding through laws that bene tted charter schools and forced cash-strapped public schools to look for pennies in the seat cushions. For all that impact, though, his name didn't connect with a big majority of Florida voters. Even after his ill-considered attempt to terrify citizens with that horrible commercial about undocumented immigrants and murder, his name still didn't register on the radar of everyday Floridians. So, even though he is in Putnam's corner, it's likely nothing that will tilt the election. Corcoran would have been the X-factor in the Republican primary, which now is a two-man scrum between Putnam and Fox News darling Ron DeSantis. But even though he won't be on the ballot this time or maybe ever again, we haven't seen the last of Corcoran. It's up to the individual to decide if that's good news or ill. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. How should we regard the millions of people who spend most of their spare time staring down at their laps, squinting at an iPhone or similar device? Should we assume that these folks are just swapping emails, doing crossword puzzles or watching "The Young and the Restless" and wondering if and when Victor Newman is ever going to die? I'd like to believe that many of the lap-squinters are reading Shakespeare, Tolstoy, James Joyce, Stephen King or other worthy authors. A form of unfair prejudice in this digital age is for bibliophiles to scorn people who don't buy, borrow or steal dozens of books each year. Or in a lifetime. Confession here: I used to feel ill at ease if I entered someone's home and discovered that it contained not one single book. I'd wonder "How can they live this way?" But one day I remembered that I had grown up in a bookless family. We had magazines and an occasional newspaper, but no books except for those my siblings and I brought home from school. Today I know that absence of books is not an indictable offense any more than a home lled with books is a guarantee that someone has actually read them. If you don't own a solitary book but you do have a computer, Kindle or other PDD (personal digital device), you possess the power to access thousands of books just by punching a few keys. This can connect you immediately to the digital equivalent of God or the Library of Congress. This latter-day miracle is called The Cloud. It consists of thousands of computer storage devices scattered across the globe. They stand ready to tell us anything we need to know, except (1) how to always be happy, and (2) what women (and men) want. Will digital devices ever become as lovable as a book? Maybe, but I doubt it. An average iPhone may be able to connect me with unlimited information, but it has no smell to it. A leather-bound book will carry its own odor, even if the book is a hundred years old. A book's contents will probably be the work of a single author. Inside the book are words, thoughts and ideas, not just gigabytes dealing with a thousand topics (as marvelous as that capability might be). You may have seen a TV series called "Hoarders." It featured homeowners apparently suffering from an addiction that prevents them from discarding virtually any object that enters their homes. The result is a nightmare of clothing, bottles, furniture, soap, cheese, bedding, eyeglasses you name it, and a hoarder will have it. Except, maybe, for books. I haven't watched the program carefully, but I don't recall seeing a book on any of the premises shown. Is that signi cant? I don't know. The modest home of my friend Lola contains about 3,000 books (rough estimate). They are neatly stacked on shelves, table tops and other horizontal surfaces. Lola was delighted recently when she saw an advertisement for a T-shirt that reads "It isn't hoarding, if it's books!" She does not pretend to have read every page of every book she owns. She hopes to do so, but her most intense pleasure comes from just acquiring any book that sounds interesting. She will buy books for her friends, but she will not give away any members of her collection. They are her beloved children. I own fewer than 200 books. My attitude toward many of them is utilitarian. If they make me laugh, help me worry less, or give me hints about how to write, I will keep them. Otherwise they are subject to one of the occasional clearances I carry out. As I review my modest book collection I ask two questions of each volume: Have I opened you up during the past six months or a year? Is it likely I will do so in the coming year? If the answer is "no" to either question, I will give the book to my local library. I take delight in my books, but I'd make a lousy hoarder. Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ time is breaking with traditionWASHINGTON President Donald Trump has the White House running on fast forward. He is pushing the once crusty and creaky foreign policy apparatus to move at the speed of Twitter. Is Trump's at-a-blur pace for better or worse? Consider Trump's action-packed Thursday. At 3 a.m., the president and rst lady shared a triumph at Joint Base Andrews as they greeted three buoyant American prisoners released by the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in advance of June's big meeting between Trump and Kim. "This is a wonderful thing that he (Kim) released the folks early. That was a very big thing," Trump exclaimed. Fast is good. Hours later, Trump tweeted more big news: "The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!" That's right. Trump scheduled a summit that leaves his national security staff and the hollowed-out State Department bureaucracy about a month to prepare for complicated negotiations involving highly technical issues. It would have been nice if Trump were this quick at lling vacant positions in Foggy Bottom. Did he schedule the summit too fast? "Yes," answered Ty Cobb, a foreign policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan now with the National Security Forum. In Cobb's experience, summits follow extensive preparation over minute details all resolved before a summit begins, so that the summit itself is simply a ceremony. Trump is leapfrogging over the usual order. And yet, Cobb nds himself thinking maybe Trump has found a smart approach with North Korea. Cobb said he had just nished a panel discussion with two other national security veterans, and all three "were struck at the success this president has had relying on his instincts instead of the bureaucracy." Americans pretty much had become used to the glacial pace of statecraft. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are ripping up the old playbook. While Trump was announcing U.S. withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear pact on Tuesday, Pompeo was already on to the next thing. "At a Key Moment, Trump's Top Diplomat Is Again Thousands of Miles Away," read a disapproving headline in The New York Times. The Times didn't look all that hot when Pompeo returned from Pyongyang with three freed prisoners in tow. In December, when Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and said he would move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy City D.C.'s chattering class expected the move to take years. Wrong. On Monday, some six months after Trump's declaration, the United States opened the new embassy and thus make good on a promise in legislation enacted in 1995. Yes, the new Jerusalem embassy will be carved out of an old compound a few rooms inside what has been the U.S. consulate of ce in Arnona, a suburb of Jerusalem. "It's not real," scoffed former Obama Undersecretary of State Ellen Tauscher. "This is like changing the sign on a hotel." Tauscher added there will not be enough room for most of the staff stationed at the longstanding embassy in Tel Aviv, so "I don't think that the embassy is moving." Cobb posited that past administrations would have moved at a snail's pace to relocate the embassy. Various staffs would have picked through all the angles, he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and then "would have reached a compromise decision that satis es no one." James Carafano, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, offered that he would have recommended against the embassy move. "Nobody really cares about the embassy," Carafano said, "not even the Palestinians. It's all symbolic." Trump? He "does it anyway," Carafano continued to show the Palestinians that Trump is serious about their leaders' need to change. If year two of Trump's foreign policy seems to be moving fast, Carafano added, it's because Trump is an intuitive decision-maker. In the rst year, America didn't see these rapid- re moves because, "You can't be an intuitive decisionmaker if you don't know the issues." But now Trump is up to speed. Trump brought Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton on board, said Carafano, "to get the government to move on Trump time." Trump time those two words no doubt send shivers through the saggy spines of foreign policy solons. Cobb sees an executive "overturning decades of tradition and caution." Is he worried? "Yes, we're all worried about that," said Cobb. But to Trump's credit, "it's worked out so far." Despite all the doomsday predictions, Carafano noted, "He hasn't started World War III yet. That's good." Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ or 202-662-7391. Follow @ DebraJSaunders on Twitter. We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

Shi ett Phone: 727-397-5563 Debra Saunders Joe Henderson Floridians haven't seen the last of Richard CorcoranHistory shows ALS too valuable to loseRe: Special task force hears about local EMS services, May 10 Editor: It was with considerable interest (and alarm) that I read of the possible reduction of the proven life-saving record of our Advanced Life Support system. It was near my fifth (and final) term as mayor of Treasure Island when I was asked by Fire Chief Art Lind if we might acquire ALS for our community. After he explained the bene ts of the program at his former FD post in Columbus, Ohio, allowing radio and telemetry contact from an emergency scene directly to the nearest hospital's ER physician, I found that our budget for the year had already been set, but the idea was proposed to the Treasure Islettes by my soul mate, and a major contribution made. Other large contributions were made by the Motel Association, the TI Business Committee, civic associations, and individuals. It was a very proud moment when the rst ALS contact was made between TIFD and Dr. Norton in the Palms of Pasadena ER, in 1974. It was the rst in the Tampa Bay area, if not the state, and has proven its value in saving lives. It is a program which must be preserved. Julian W. Fant fromer myor and commissioner Treasure IslandSwimming project called a successEditor: We want to thank our private and public sponsors for the 34th Annual Every Child A Swimmer program this year. I know the students learned a lot and many progressed to the point of swimming on their own. It's amazing to see the progress they make over the three-week period. We helped 20 children be safe and healthy swimmers and you helped make their experience important. Together we provided 160 hours of instruction with over 100 hours of volunteer and Kiwanis Club help. We couldn't make this program work without the help of our citizen volunteers, Kiwanis Club members, the City of Seminole Recreation Dept., the Seminole Pinch A Penny pool store, Publix, McDonald's and others. Thank you again for making this project the success that it is! Cliff Englert, President, Kiwanis Club of Seminole

DOH-Pinellas to host no-cost hepatitis tests May 18To mark National Hepatitis Testing Day on May 19, the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County is urging individuals to take advantage of no-cost hepatitis testing and education. The screenings and education presentation will take place Friday, May 18, 9 a.m. to noon, at the following locations: 205 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N., St. Petersburg 8751 Ulmerton Road, Largo It is especially important for Baby Boomers those born between 1946 and 1964 and those who share needles to know their status because hepatitis can reside in the body without symptoms for decades. Knowing one's status can mean an opportunity for early treatment before symptoms are up. Staff will provide the screenings and education on hepatitis A, B and C. The term "hepatitis" means an in ammation of the liver. Hepatitis A, B and C are the most common form of viral hepatitis in the United States. These viruses can have similar symptoms, but different ways of being transmitted: Hepatitis A is a very contagious live infection that's usually spread when objects, food or stool from an infected person are eaten by others. An effective vaccine is available to prevent the spread of hepatitis A. Hepatitis B spreads via bodily uids from one person to another. Sex and contact with contaminated blood can pass it on. There is a vaccine to prevent hepatitis B. Two-thirds of people with hepatitis B don't know they are infected. Hepatitis C spreads when blood from a person with the infection enters another person's body. Sharing needles is a possible mode of transmission. Adults born between 1945 and 1965 have the highest hepatitis C rates among age groups over 30. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that Baby Boomers get tested for hepatitis C at least once in their lifetimes. The CDC has an online tool to help adults determine their hepatitis risk. Visit to take the quiz.

While waiting, they talk, they play games, they wrack their brains to think of anything to pass the time until Godot arrives.  Classic Albums Live: Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours,” Friday, May 18, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater.

W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $29.75. Call 813-229-7827 or visit The company, under the artistic direction of Alonso, legendary prima ballerina, last performed in Tampa at the Straz Center in October 2003. Founded by Alonso, Ballet Nacional de Cuba stands as the preeminent international cultural export of the island country. Technically awless with an ineffable style born of the unique, multi-cultural in uences of Cuba’s heritage, Ballet Nacional de Cuba performs unlike any classical ballet company in the world. The company ascended to the high order of international ballet companies and continues to excite audiences as one of the greatest classical dance companies in the world. Blending contemporary Cuban technique with classical lines and the duende captured by some of the most expressive dancers in the world, the company will present Alonso’s unforgettable and enthralling staging of “Giselle,” set to Adolphe Adam’s haunting score. The Straz Center performance will be one of only four engagements in the United States in 2018, including The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the historic Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. Alonso began her training in Havana and later studied at the esteemed School of American Ballet in New York City. One of the enduring legends of George Balanchine’s early crop of young dancers, Alonso’s signature role in “Giselle” launched her to stardom. Her interpretations in such ballets as Agnes DeMille’s “Fall River Legend,” Antony Tudor’s “Undertow” and Balanchine’s “Theme and Variations” galvanized her career as a riveting dramatic dancer with pristine technical execution. In 1948, Alonso returned to Cuba to found her own company, the Alicia Alonso Ballet Company, which became Ballet Nacional de Cuba, the country’s signature ballet company. Alonso retired from the stage in 1995, after performing her work “The Butter y.” She was 75. She continues to direct Ballet Nacional de Cuba and is regarded as one of the greatest ballet dancers in history.

Entertainment 3B Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018TAMPA – As part of the Club Jaeb series, Shannon McNally will perform Monday, May 21, 7:30 p.m., in Jaeb Theater at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $30.50. Call 813229-7827 or visit With an ancestry stretching back to Ireland and a current home squarely in the Mississippi hills, McNally is the right sooty-winged angel to deliver the lilting blues-Americana message of “Black Irish,” her latest hit album. Part Muddy Waters and part Emmylou Harris, McNally doesn’t just play music – she becomes it. “Black Irish” is McNally’s most personal project yet, speaking to the power of connection and the power of music to create it and to re ect it. The kickoff track “You Made Me Feel for You” was written by her producer, Americana icon Rodney Crowell, and serves as a metaphor for their collaboration – how his particular understanding of her unique gifts pulled out the career-de ning album many have been waiting for since she came on the scene. The album concept began in 2013, as she was going through what she calls “a miserable divorce,” raising her daughter Maeve, and nursing her terminally ill mother Maureen. Her parents had relocated to Holly Springs, Mississippi, and McNally moved in, caring for her mom until her death in 2015. “I had no vim or vigor in me for a couple of years,” she admits in a biographical sketch provided by Compass Records. What saved her was her email relationship with Crowell, who’d been talking about producing her since 2012. He wrote in the liner notes for “Black Irish” that their musical connection was immediate, describing McNally as “this dark-eyed beauty who wrote grown-up songs, played a pretty mean Fender Stratocaster and, at times, sounded a lot like Jesse Mae Hemphill. From our rst meeting, I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was the right man for the job of shepherding the next Shannon McNally record into existence.” It wasn’t easy. Too depressed to write, McNally recorded a favorite Emmylou Harris song on her laptop and worked up the nerve to email it to him. With lines like “There’s a river of darkness in my blood,” “Prayer in Open D” spoke to pain she couldn’t verbalize. “And he called me back and said, ‘That’s gorgeous, you were meant to do that song. Do more.” That was all she needed. “We started this really wonderful thing of just lobbing song titles back and forth,” McNally said. “And I just sat at that table and learned about a dozen tunes, my favorite covers, anything to spark a re in this really dark turn.” She co-wrote three of the album’s 12 songs – one with producer Crowell, who also penned two more for her. The rest include personal favorites such as Stevie Wonder’s “I Ain’t Gonna Stand For It,” Robbie Robertson’s “It Makes No Difference,” and J.J. Cale’s “Low Rider.” The result is an album that stands with the best of classic vocal interpreters – artists such as Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and Maria Muldaur. “I just love great songs,” McNally said. “I’m inspired by Willie Nelson, Muddy Waters, Emmylou Harris, Bill Withers, Mavis Staples. None of them hesitate to sing any song they feel like singing, even if they didn’t write it. I think great songs need to be spotlighted, they need to recycle back up into the consciousness.” Sponsored by Rock Brothers Brewing, Club Jaeb transforms the Straz Center’s Jaeb Theater into an intimate music space featuring folk, Americana, alternative, country and other “hand-picked music that matters.” Rock Brothers Brewing will provide tastings of a special brew prepared exclusively for Club Jaeb audience members.

8B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, May 17, 2018(Candice Bergen) is still working through a decades-old divorce. Carol’s (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. Four lifelong friends’ lives are turned upside down to hilarious ends when their book club tackles the infamous “Fifty Shades of Grey.” From discovering new romance to rekindling old ames, they inspire each other to make their next chapter the best chapter. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters. ‘On Chesil Beach’ Genre: Drama Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle, Anne-Marie Duff, Adrian Scarborough, Emily Watson and Samuel West Director: Dominic Cooke Rated: R Adapted by Ian McEwan from his bestselling novel, the drama centers on a young couple of drastically different backgrounds in the summer of 1962. Following the pair through their idyllic courtship, the lm explores sex and the societal pressure that can accompany physical intimacy, leading to an awkward and fateful wedding night. ‘Pope Francis – A Man of his Word’ Genre: Documentary Director: Wim Wenders Rated: PG Wim Wenders’ new documentary, “Pope Francis A Man of His Word,” is intended to be a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him. The pope’s ideas and his message are central to this documentary, which sets out to present his work of reform and his answers to today’s global questions. From his deep concern for the poor and wealth inequality, to his involvement in environmental issues and social justice, Pope Francis engages the audience face-to-face and calls for peace. ‘First Reformed’ Genre: Thriller Cast: Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried and Cedric Kyles Director: Paul Schrader Rated: R Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong ock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman nds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he nds redemption in an act of grandiose violence.

Tickets start at $35. Call 727-791-7400 or visit According to a press release from Artisan Agency, 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s remarkable arrival onto the music scene. Since its formation in the early 1990s in Ventura, California, the band has toured virtually nonstop, performing on average more than 150 shows a year while simultaneously producing a sizable catalog of recorded music with sales of over 2 million albums to date. Early on, during their legendary residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, they reminded the world – in the midst of the grunge era no less – that it was still cool to swing. The band, co-founded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing, and Dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s all original core line-up includes Scotty Morris on lead vocals and guitar, Kurt Sodergren on drums, Dirk Shumaker on double bass and vocals, Andy Rowley on baritone saxophone and vocals, Glen “The Kid” Marhevka on trumpet, Karl Hunter on saxophones and clarinet and Joshua Levy on piano. Levy also serves as the band’s arranger. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s efforts to promote and revitalize swing music have taken shape as much more than a simple tribute. Taking inspiration from the creators of this uniquely American art form, the band’s original horn-infused music and legendary high energy show introduces the genre to a new and younger generation while remaining cognizant and respectful of the music’s rich legacy. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s rst phase of stardom featured an appearance in the 1996 indie lm “Swingers,” a movie that not only launched the careers of Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau, but introduced Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to an audience beyond their Los Angeles base. The band’s music has appeared in countless lms and television shows, including “The Wild,” “De-spicable Me,” “Phineas & Ferb,” “Friends,” “Third Rock from the Sun,” “Ally McBeal” and “So You Think You Can Dance.” They have appeared live on “Dancing with the Stars,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center” and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in addition to seven appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and the Super Bowl XXXIII Halftime Show. The band has also appeared as special guests with many of the country’s most distinguished symphony orchestras, and has performed for three U.S. presidents. After 25 years, 11 records, more than 2,800 live shows, and countless appearances in lm and television, the members of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are showing no signs of slowing down. They are looking forward to celebrating the band’s 25th anniversary in 2018. The band’s unique take on American swing and jazz music has thrilled audiences around the world with hit songs such as “I Wanna Be Like You,” “Mr. Pinstripe Suit,” “Why Me,” “You & Me & The Bottle Makes 3 Tonight” and more. “Louie, Louie, Louie,” the band’s 2017 release, is a rousing celebration of music legends Louis Armstrong, Louis Jordan and Louis Prima. These remarkable artists revolutionized American music and popular culture and set the standard for what great entertainment and artistic expression could be, bandleader and vocalist Scotty Morris says, “We really want people to know about these great men that have so deeply influenced us, and perhaps help spark a new creative interest in them and their music,” said Morris is a press release. “It’s important to educate people – if artists don’t continue to spread the word, this music is going to go away and that’s something we can’t afford to have happen.” For information on the band, visit For venue information, visit to present swing revival band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Image courtesy of ARTISAN AGENCYBig Bad Voodoo Daddy is touring in support of their 2017 release “Louie, Louie, Louie.” Photo by DON MILLERBig Bad Voodoo Daddy performs May 27 at Capitol Theatre.
