By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE – Though she hasn’t lived in the city for several years, Barbara Dandro – writing under the pen name B.J. Dandro – decided to set her debut murder mystery novel, “Banking on Deceit,” in Seminole. It’s the perfect setting for such a tale, said the Lutz resident. “It’s a nice, calm, little community,” she said. “Who knew that something like this would happen there?” For decades, Dandro lived in the greater Seminole area, particularly the Bardmoor area. She was also a member of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake. She earned a degree in creative writing from the University of South Florida, and went on to work for the St. Petersburg Times (now called the Tampa Bay Times) in retail advertising and also writing news features. She went on to open her own advertising agency and teach at DeVry University. Currently, she works in real estate. At heart, she was always a writer, though. And she always loved mysteries, from the Nancy Drew book series to the “Murder She Wrote” television show. Then, about five years ago, the seed for the plot to “Banking on Deceit” was planted when a snafu at Dandro’s bank led to her safe deposit key not being rekeyed. She said, “I thought, isn’t this interesting that something like this could happen, and maybe you can pull something diabolical out of it.” She created the character Toni Jasper, a former newspaper employee who started her own ad agency, loosely based on herself. Jasper nds herself involved in the investigation of a bank robbery and murder when she begins looking into what happened to a client and friend. “She takes the initiative even though the detective doesn’t really want her interfering,” Dandro said. “She’s kind of a persistent, curious woman, and she feels like she has to be the hero and help everybody out.” Seminole residents might recognize local landmarks, including the Seminole Community Library and City Hall, as well as Seminole City Center. “I try to have some basis of reality with ctional elements,” Dandro said. For more information, visit bjdandro.com. “Banking on Deceit” can be purchased on Amazon. Volume 40, No. 12 May 24, 2018 www.TBNweekly.com By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersMonday morning the news spread quickly and people reacted with sadness and praise. Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni died Sunday night after spending 25 years in public service. Morroni, 63, had been ghting cancer since April at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. “John Morroni was a dedicated public servant with a passion for our community,” Commission Chair Ken Welch said on his Facebook page. “Our hearts are saddened by his passing, but we are eternally grateful for his leadership and his vision for Pinellas. He has run his race and at peace with the Lord. His wife, Eileen, and son, Mike, are in our thoughts and prayers.” Morroni, a 10-year cancer survivor, did battle with the deadly disease four times and won all but the last one, Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a rare type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. His Facebook page quickly filled with comments May 21 as family, friends, neighbors, elected officials and constituents expressed their feelings about his death. “John Morroni was a joy to know. He had such joy in life and put that joy to work for all of us as a neighbor, friend, county commissioner and state representative. Always gracious and giving, he was an example of the best we can be. My heart goes out to his family at this sad time. RIP, John. You fought hard and well, and I’m so grateful to have known you,” shared Billie Noakes, who had posted her message on the Treasure Island and Madeira Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page. Morroni was a resident of Treasure Island. He also lived for many years in the Feather Sound community. His public service goes back to 1992 when he was elected to the Florida House of Representatives, where he served until Saying goodbye to MorroniPinellas County mourns passing of long-time commissioner John Morroni John Morroni See MORRONI, page 4A VIEWPOINTS Bob DriverYou never know what you get with the New Yorker. ...

By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE – In 2015, Lake Seminole Square’s resident program manager Donna MacKenzie launched a walking club for those who called the assisted living community home. The group of nearly 20 walkers would meet daily at 9 a.m. to walk around the facilities. As schedules con icted and their lives got busier, “it became too challenging for everybody to walk together at the same time,” MacKenzie said. So rather than disbanding, the group got creative. Members decided to walk on their own time and meet monthly to talk about their experiences. To further bond the group, which would no longer meet daily, they decided to combine the miles they walked each month to walk towards a speci c destination. The new version of the club began Nov. 1, 2016 with members tallying their monthly miles towards a destination of Laguna Beach, California – 2,474 miles from Seminole. The group “arrived” in Laguna Beach March 6, 2017. Once they reached their original destination, the group wanted to keep going. So, they decided to keep walking north, this time with the goal of reaching Anchorage, Alaska. This trek totaled 3,599 miles, which the group completed by July of 2017. From there, the group set a new destination, Toronto, which was 4,168 miles from Anchorage. They reached Toronto Feb. 25 Walking clubLake Seminole Square residents ‘walk’ across North AmericaAuthor pens murder mystery set in SeminolePhoto by TIFFANY RAZZANOBarbara Dandro, writing as B.J.

4A Community Seminole Beacon, May 24, 20182000. He then served as a Pinellas County commissioner from 2000 until he died.He had announced earlier this year that he would not be seeking reelection. Morroni rst learned he had non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the fall of 2008. He was 53. He spent six months undergoing chemotherapy and ve weeks of radiation before he could share the good news that the cancer was gone. Four years later, during a follow-up CAT scan done the second week in December, he found out the cancer had returned. Morroni underwent a stem cell transplant and “toxic” chemotherapy. That treatment was more dif cult and took longer. It also required a lengthy hospital stay. After the treatment, Morroni’s doctors had believed that the stem cell treatment would keep his cancer in check for a long time, the commissioner said in a Dec. 20, 2011 interview. “Hopefully until I’m at least 80,” he said. “And they’re nding out stuff about stem cell transplants all the time. It’s so exciting and promising. Maybe they’ll nd the cure in my lifetime.” However, it was not to be. County Communications sent out a news release July 5, 2016 announcing that Morroni would be undergoing treatment at Mof tt Cancer Center for a rare blood disorder known as secondary myelodysplastic syndrome, which was a secondary effect of the chemotherapy he received to treat non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2012. His fourth diagnosis came in April of this year. Morroni was born Feb. 15, 1955 in Chicago, Illinois and moved to Florida in 1980. He and his wife, Eileen, have one son, Mike. Morroni is known for a number of good deeds, but perhaps the one he was most proud of was his annual Appreciation Dinner for Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical and Fire Personnel. At his 23rd dinner this year, more than $80,000 was raised for Mof tt Cancer Center. A Go Fund Me page has been started, www.gofundme.com/ JohnMorroniLegacy, to raise money to continue Morroni’s legacy. “In support and love of a Pinellas public servant, political icon, father and friend to many that we lost on 5.20.2018. … “John cared about all those around him and this is a sincere way we can pay respect to our friend,” it says on the page. The money raised will go to Morroni’s Law Enforcement and Emergency First Responders Foundation. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at sporter@TBNweekly.com.long-term care planning and more.

AROUND, from page 3A MORRONI, from page 1A of this year. “Then we decided it was time to come home,” MacKenzie said. The group headed south to come back to Florida, totaling 1,358 miles on this leg of the journey. They completed the trip April 20. By then the group had grown signi cantly to 57 walkers. “As we get new residents, we have new people join the walking club all the time,” she said. “So, it really has grown from those original 20 folks. It’s just a really cool way to get together … there’s a lot of camaraderie. It’s a real social thing.” The group celebrated the completion of its journey with a ceremony at Lake Seminole Square on May 11. MacKenzie honored the walkers who tallied the most miles as well as those with the most inspiring stories. Some walkers, when they started, could barely make one lap around the all-purpose room that serves as a gym at Lake Seminole Square, but by the end of the journey were walking more than a mile a day without using their walkers. Others had signi cant visual impairments but were committed to walking each day. “It’s really inspiring,” she said. A newer resident, Everett Stevens rst joined the group when he moved to Lake Seminole Square in October. Then, in January and February, he fell ill and spent 30 days in a hospital. When he returned home, he was con ned to a wheelchair and “couldn’t even hold a fork,” he said. He got back to the walking club immediately, though, he said, using it as part of his rehabilitation. Now, he’s back to walking a mile a day without using a walker. “Everything came back together,” he said. “I’m really happy about that.” Marge Bradshaw, who walked the most miles with 882.5 tallied throughout the entire journey, said she keeps track of her miles wherever she happens to be. “I walked a lot of them at Disney and kept track,” she said. “It adds up. You don’t realize how fast.” She added, “Walking every day, it’s been very good for me health wise. I’m a bike rider, but I haven’t done near as much walking.” Though this journey is complete, the group isn’t done walking. At its next meeting, members will choose their next destination – possibly Mexico or the Grand Canyon or Humboldt, Canada to honor the junior hockey team affected by a bus crash in April.

By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersAAA says to expect crowded roadways and airports this Memorial Day as more than 41.5 million Americans will likely spend the rst of cial holiday of the summer season taking a trip. That’s nearly 5 percent more than last year and the most since 2005. And Floridians are following the trend with more than 2.2 million expected to travel for the holiday – 5.5 percent more than last year. About 36.6 million Americans planning a trip will travel by automobile, 5.5 percent more than 2017, and about 2.2 million Floridians planning to take a road trip, about 5.5 percent than last year, which equals about 100,000 more people. AAA says gas prices, which are expected to be the most expensive in four years, are not affecting travel plans. AAA’s Assistant Vice President for Travel Sales Development Vicky Evans says, “Higher gas prices will not be enough to keep travelers home this Memorial Day weekend. A strong economy and growing consumer confidence are giving Americans all the motivation they need to kick off what we expect to be a busy summer travel season with a Memorial Day getaway.” Gas prices averaged about $2.72 for a gallon of unleaded in April, an increase of 33 cents from the same time last year. AAA says rising prices are due to expensive crude oil, record gasoline demand and shrinking global supply. The national price of gasoline on Memorial Day was $3.66 and $3.62 in Florida. As of May 20, the national average was $2.92 and in Florida, it was $2.82. In the Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater, the average price was $2.77, which was down 3 cents from the week before. INRIX, a global transportation analytics company who collaborated with AAA for the Memorial Day travel predictions, advises travelers who plan to travel by automobile to expect more traf c on Thursday and Friday, May 24-25, especially in the late afternoons when commuters begin to leave work. “Ranked the most congested country in the world, U.S. drivers are all too familiar with sitting in traf c,” said Graham Cookson, chief economist and head of research at INRIX. “Drivers should expect congestion across a greater number of days than in previous years, with the getaway period starting on Wednesday, May 23. Our advice to drivers it to avoid peak commute times in major cities altogether – traveling late morning or early afternoon – or plan alternative routes.” While travelers may pay more at the gas pump, those using other means of travel may save money compared to last year. More people also are expected to fly to their destination, about 6.8 percent more nationally and 7.6 percent more Floridians. AAA projects they will pay about 7 percent less with an average price of $168 for a round-trip ight to the top 40 domestic ights. Hotels are less expensive with AAA’s Three Diamond hotels charging 14 percent less than last year and Two Diamond hotels offering a 7 percent savings.

cars are expected to average about $59 a day, the lowest rate in four years. Trains, buses and cruise ships can expect more passengers as well, about 2.4 percent nationally and 1.3 percent in Florida. For those planning to stay close to home, expect the beaches to be busy. And if you’re thinking a trip to Disney might be in order, AAA says Orlando will be the most-visit Memorial Day destination this year. Also, be advised, Florida Highway Patrol and other law enforcement are participating in the national “Click It or Ticket” campaign, which runs through June 3. “Not wearing a seatbelt is deadly,” said Col. Gene S. Spaulding, FHP director. “FHP will continue to collaborate with our law enforcement partners to ensure everyone’s safety on Florida’s roadways.” FHP offers the following safety tips:  Buckle up and make sure rear-seat passengers also are wearing their seat belt.  Obey all speed limits. Traf c congestion and construction may require you to drive slower.  Drive sober.  Don’t drive distracted.  Use caution around bicycles and large commercial vehicles and always look twice for motorcycles.  Remember: Safety on the road is a shared responsibility.

8A County Seminole Beacon, May 24, 2018Caudell pulls out of race for County commissioner By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersDoreen Caudell announced May 14 that she is pulling out of the race for Pinellas County Commissioner District 2, leaving incumbent Pat Gerard running unopposed for the position. Caudell made the announcement on her Facebook page, saying “it is an honor to serve the citizens of Clearwater as their City councilmember and vice mayor.” “There are many exciting opportunities facing the city of Clearwater over the next several years and I feel compelled to dedicate my full time and attention to passionately represent Clearwater and its citizens on the numerous boards and committees that I have been appointed to by the City Council,” Caudell said. “It has become clear to me that running for Pinellas County Commission in 2018 is not the best way for me to serve the citizens of Clearwater.” Caudell’s announcement means only one commissioner spot will likely be on the Aug. 28 primary ballot. Commissioner Dave Eggers is running unopposed for the District 4 seat. The big race is for the late longtime Commissioner John Morroni’s spot representing District 6. Four have announced their intention to run for his job. Three Republicans, Larry Ahern, Barb Haselden and Kathleen Peters, will vie for the opportunity to take on the one lone Democrat, Amy Kedron, in the November election. However, there is still time for more candidates to announce their intentions to run for office. Prequalifying for statewide, multi-county, county and district candidates (other than judicial, state attorney and public defender) begins June 4. During the 14-day period, qualifying papers can be accepted for processing and filing during the qualifying period, which runs June 18-22. For information on how to run for office or how to qualify, visit votepinellas.com or call 727-4644987. Morroni, who died May 20 after a fight with cancer, decided not to run last year after serving on the commission since 2000. Eggers has represented District 4 since 2014 and Gerard has represented District 2, which is a countywide position, since 2014. Ahern currently represents District 66 and Peters serves District 69 in the state House of Representatives. Haselden is best known for her work as an activist to defeat the Greenlight initiative with her “No Tax for Tracks” campaign. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

It completes a loop in the gardens’ trails that will provide visitors a closer look at the native plants and animals that live there. The walkway includes a boardwalk, viewing areas and new native plantings to attract wildlife by providing additional habitat. The boardwalk and walkway paths lead guests through part of The Gardens’ wetland area and opens into an overlook to give a broader view of the nature and wildlife that reside there including numerous bird species, mammals and reptiles. The project was primarily funded by donations the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation collects during the annual Holiday Lights event. The Foundation partners with Pinellas County’s Parks and Conservation Resources department to continue making The Gardens a world class experience for both residents and tourists. The Florida Botanical Gardens is at 12520 Ulmerton Road in Largo, with an alternate entrance at 12211 Walsingham Road. The Gardens are open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. every day, with free admission.

Police 9A Seminole Beacon, May 24, 2018 Police beatOff-duty Largo re ghter arrested for DUI in DunedinDUNEDIN – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested an off-duty Largo re ghter May 9 for driving under the in uence. Deputies say they saw a 2013 Dodge Dart, facing westbound and stopped in the intersection of Main Street and Bass Boulevard in Dunedin about 4 a.m. Deputies pulled behind the vehicle and noted the brake lights were activated despite there being a steady green light. Deputies activated their overhead emergency lights, but the vehicle remained stationary. Deputies made contact with the driver, identi ed as 26-year-old Michael Cruz. Deputies say Cruz was sleeping, with his foot on the brake. The vehicle was in drive and there were no other occupants inside. Deputies knocked on the window multiple times before Cruz responded. They say they had to assist Cruz with opening his vehicle door and placing the vehicle in park. Deputies say they noticed that Cruz showed signs of impairment by having bloodshot, glassy eyes and a distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his mouth. Cruz agreed to perform Field Sobriety Tests, but performed poorly on them. Cruz also submitted a breath sample, which indicated he had a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit. Cruz was booked into the County jail on one count of DUI and then released on his own recognizance.Clearwater police seek help to ID woman who tried to rob WalgreensCLEARWATER – Police detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify a woman who tried to rob the Walgreens at 703 Court St. about 7 a.m. May 15.

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, May 24, 2018The only way to avoid Rick Scott’s ad blitz thus far in his campaign for the U.S. Senate is to unplug your TV set and, well, who wants to do that? That would mean you missed the royal wedding and the Tampa Bay Lightning’s ongoing run toward the Stanley Cup, so I guess being subjected to Scott’s “approved” attack on his opponent and incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson is a price we just have to pay. The latest ad is a real gem. Scott, the two-term governor, has been attacking Nelson, the three-term senator, as a “career politician.” Now, he is using what looks like the cast of Everyday Folks to paint Nelson as a rubber stamp who always votes the party line for the Democratic agenda – whatever it is. One guy in the commercial even says Nelson is too in uenced by Nancy Pelosi, and while I suppose their paths have crossed I doubt the House minority leader has much in uence over Nelson’s votes in the Senate. Ah, but that’s how the game is played. Republicans believe Pelosi is such a hot-button item that merely hearing her name or seeing her face will send thousands of voters stampeding to the polls to back any GOP candidate. Scott is not above playing the guilt-by-association game, either. A big part of his strategy as an unknown outsider in 2010 was to label Republican front-runner Bill McCollum as liberal for supporting – wait for it – “pro-abortion and pro-homosexual” Rudy Giuliani in the 2008 presidential primary. Painting McCollum as liberal was (and is) laughable, except it worked. Scott then put “let’s get to work” on an endless loop that we’re still repeating eight years later, and I guess he gures if a little distortion worked before, why mess with success? Besides, Nelson is absorbing a ton of body blows from these ads while sitting on about $10.5 million in his campaign chest. It’s reasonable to ask when he will start throwing punches back before Rick Scott de nes himself as an agent of change and Nelson as the face of partisan politics. While Scott has already spent $8 million on TV ads, including Spanishlanguage ads, Nelson has essentially been a ghost on TV and puzzling to the Democratic base. For instance, he voted to con rm Gina Haspel as director of the CIA, choosing not to hold the fact she oversaw “enhanced interrogation” (torture) for a time. He tweeted his support for relocating the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, calling it the “appropriate place.” That doesn’t sound like a Democratic rubber stamp to me. As long as Nelson lets Scott keep pounding away though, it doesn’t really matter what is true and what is misleading. Yeah, I know – the leadup to major elections is all about being misleading. Voters can usually sort through the nonsense, and it is still about 5 1/2 months until the election. Neither candidate faces a serious primary challenge. If I were Democrats though, I’d be worried that Scott is managing to plant enough seeds with voters that it could be hard for Nelson to change minds. If they doubt that, just ask Bill McCollum. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. LETTERS Is the New Yorker magazine on the skids, or is it my brain that has lost whatever sharpness it may have had? I re-subscribed to the magazine a few months ago, and I seem to have detected a lower quality in its cartoons, which have always been its main attraction for persons of questionable intelligence, such as me. Even some of the covers puzzle me. The artwork out front doesn’t always match the title of the piece. When the New Yorker was founded by Harold Ross in 1925, he said it would become a unique and sophisticated publication. “This won’t be edited for the old lady in Dubuque,” he said. He certainly succeeded. The magazine’s cartoons as well as its writing and reporting have made it famous. Having one’s short story, poem or nonfiction article published in the New Yorker has been the dream of thousands of writers. On the other hand, the only dream of many of the New Yorker’s readers has simply been to comprehend even a few of the poems the magazine publishes. The same thing goes, to a lesser extent, with the short stories. Although it’s possible for a reader of average intelligence to become a dyed-in-the-wool fan of the New Yorker, odds are strong that such an allegiance will be rooted in the cartoons, more than in the print pages. Perhaps the best remembered New Yorker cartoonist is Charles Addams. His dark, spooky and twisted cartoons were in a class of their own. His characters and their bizarre adventures achieved an even wider audience when the TV series, the Addams Family, appeared. Addams attended the University of Pennsylvania in 1930-31. One of its oldest buildings is said to be the model for the Addams family TV home. In the mid-1960s I worked in the university’s news bureau, directly across the street from that building. Tales of Addams’ talent and personality were common.One of them went this way: His New Yorker editors could often tell when Addams was entering an over-the-edge state of mind. At such times his cartoon submissions were so outrageous as to be unpublishable. Example: A proud father stood staring through the viewing glass of a hospital’s maternity ward. On the other side of the window, a nurse held not just one, but twin newborn babies for their father to admire. After a few seconds, with a smile, he told the nurse, “They’re ne. I’ll eat them here.” That cartoon gave a hint of Addams’ reallife attitude toward children: he hated small ones. He divorced his rst wife after eight years of marriage because she wanted children. He didn’t. Weirdness and eccentricity at the New Yorker has not been confined to its cartoonists and writers. The lives and attitudes of its editors have generated a number of fascinating biographies. On one extreme were men who were born with sophistication and worldly wisdom coming out of their ears. On the other end of the scale were men whose literary erudition was symbolized by the editor who stuck his head into the doorway of a colleague and asked, “Was Moby Dick the man or the whale?” Side note: the New Yorker has had only one female editor, Tina Brown. During her sixyear tenure, she made a number of changes that moved the magazine further into the 20th century. Why should anyone read a publication as unpredictable and unclassifiable as the New Yorker? The answer lies in the question: Because you never know what you’ll get – politics, art, movies, history, humor, sports, books, science – the entire marvelous uncertain nut-house we’re living through, all told through the best writing we’re likely to encounter this side of John McPhee, James Thurber or Joyce Carol Oates. Plus, of course, the cartoons. Today if you purchase a New Yorker at a newsstand you’ll pay $8.99 for a single issue. But if you subscribe, you’ll pay only one buck – and you’ll also have full access to each issue via the Internet. Final fact: You should be advised that 77 percent of the magazine’s readers have political views that are left of center. Which means that even if Donald Trump could read (which he cannot, or does not), he wouldn’t be caught dead with a copy of the New Yorker.Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ comcast.net.Time to pause in a moment of unity For the cost of 50 cents, I’ve been spellbound by a work of non ction that will remain on my bookshelf as long as I live. That’s how much I paid for Tom Brokaw’s “The Greatest Generation” at the Dunedin Friends of the Library’s book sale a few years ago. Published in 1998, the journalist’s masterpiece provides stirring stories about Americans from all walks of life who served their country in World War II. I’ve read it twice – and I’m sure I read it again – to help me be forever mindful of the sacri ces these men and women made and to help share their stories, some disturbing. There’s Johnnie Holmes, a black soldier from the Chicago area. Here’s a snippet from the book: “He remembers the German POWS were allowed to go to the PX when Holmes and his friends could not. He remembers white of cers saying, ‘If you boys don’t behave, we’ll have those Germans guard you.” Holmes served in the 761st Tank Battalion and was in combat for 138 straight days, including during the Battle of the Bulge. His outfit liberated Jewish prisoners from three concentration camps. After the war he worked for the city of Chicago, became involved in real estate and died in 2013 at 91 years old – a hero. Brokaw’s book also has some lighter accounts. There’s John Caulfied, who served in the Navy. After the war he was a principal and eventually founded the ROMEO Club at a Bar and Grill in Cambridge. Club members shared their camaraderie and their sense of patriotism with visitors. ROMEO? Retired Old Men Eating Out. Thoughts about the war have been whirling through my head, beginning with a recent interview I had with Martin Abrams, 92, a World War II infantryman who received a Purple Heart for severe frostbite. The Palm Harbor retiree talked with me for almost three hours, vividly recalling being extremely cold in the Ardennes Forest and removed from combat in November 1944. He still suffers from leg and feet pain caused by the cold weather. It was an honor to be invited to his house to hear his stories. We are losing 372 American World War II veterans per day. About 558,000 of the 16 million Americans who served remain alive, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs says. Whether they served in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War or the many engagements since then, countless veterans suffered some hardships – and have stories to tell. And our allies as well. My late father was a bombsight technician in the U.S. Army in World War II, stationed for some time in Alaska. I remember my mom bringing up the possibility of taking a vacation to Alaska. “Have fun,” Dad said. I remember visiting an uncle in 2004 who told me anecdotes of serving in World War II on a sub chaser off Okinawa, I believe. Whenever his crew would sink a submarine, they would y a broom attached to a mast. Chuckling, he said that the ritual indicated “a clean sweep.” Close to 1,000 of the nearly 1.8 million troops who served in the Korean War die every day. More valuable lives and stories lost. Certainly, Americans have diverse views on war, foreign policies, religion and politics. That’s symbolic of our enduring love of freedom – which many of our brethren have died for. I hope Americans will take time on Memorial Day to honor our veterans for the sacrifices they made – whether by attending a ceremony, visiting a cemetery, displaying an American ag or simply saying thanks to a friend or loved one for their military service. The National Moment of Remembrance, established by Congress asks Americans at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute. The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday. It is called an act of unity. Perfect. Please join us.

Why do smokers think they can toss cigarette butts wherever they want? Cigarette butts are litter. Littering is against the law. Butts do not disintegrate, deteriorate, dissolve or degrade. Publix has garbage cans, butt disposals, and yet people empty their car ashtrays in the parking lot. Do they do this at home in their driveways? Walmart has lovely landscaping and garbage cans/butt disposals at all their doors – and butts among all the bushes and sidewalks. Speedway on Gulf Boulevard, where maybe there should absolutely be no smoking, has the garbage cans and disposals – and the butts! One cannot even eat at some outdoor patio restaurants; McDonald’s please note. Now the worst part is the beaches. Beaches are not ash trays. Birds eat butts and get clogged up, sh eat butts. If lters are in and made with toxic materials, are the sh we eat toxic? Emoji, the baby manatee, was reported to have butts and plastic bags in its stomach when it died. The beach at John’s Pass is sometimes really scattered with butts and children are playing in this sand. Am I the only one bothered by the lack of respect for our beautiful Florida? Nancy Petritis Madeira BeachStrong mayor model sounds like a dictatorshipEditor: I live in Clearwater for many reasons. Not the least of which is the more laid-back community that we are. If I wanted to live in an overcrowded city with no transportation solutions, I would move back to Tampa or St. Petersburg. We already have no traf c solution for Clearwater Beach. Proponents of a strong mayor make the point that cities that have that model allows for the mayor to hire, re and make deals as he/she sees t. Sounds more like a dictatorship to me. I like the current system of community input with a responsive city council and manager. Ken Marlow Clearwater

12A Faith Seminole Beacon, May 24, 2018 Faith & FamilyFaith leaders to host LGBTQ panel at library GULFPORT – A panel of local faith leaders from the Interfaith Tampa Bay Pride Worship Service, including both Christian and non-Christian viewpoints, will give short presentations about how their faith traditions are working to make themselves more open and accepting to LGBTQ seekers. This free program will take place Tuesday, June 19, noon, at Gulfport Public Library, 5501 28th Ave. S., Gulfport. All are invited. Since many traditions say we are made in God’s image, does that mean God can be gay too? What does it really mean that Jesus never even mentioned homosexuality? How does being gay affect the quest for enlightenment in non-Western traditions? These and other provocative topics will be covered and there will be time for questions and answers too. Come enjoy a great “lunch and learn” program. Attendees may bring their own lunch. For more information, email Greg Stemm at gstemm@aol.com. The event is presented by the LGBTQ Resource Center at Gulfport Public Library. The center was established in 2014 and is the rst of its kind in a public library setting in Florida, providing collections, services and events throughout the year to the local LGBTQ community, its friends and family. The center is a project of the nonpro t Circle of Friends of the Gulfport Public Library. New vicar welcomed at Seminole churchSEMINOLE – St. Anne of Grace Episcopal Church welcomed the Rev.

One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. That doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan (Elle Fanning), a beautiful and rebellious alien teenager who, despite her allegiance to her strange colony, is fascinated by Enn. Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these lms appear in local movie theaters.

Tickets start at $25. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www. atthecap.com. Waite got his start as the lead singer of British rockers The Babys. Their hits include “Isn’t It Time?” and “Every Time I Think of You.” After ve albums with The Babys, Waite released “Ignition,” his rst solo album which boasted the hit rock single “Change.” Waite’s next solo effort, 1984’s “No Brakes,” did exactly what the title inferred, barreling at runaway train speed to international acclaim and U.S. platinum success thanks to the smash hit, “Missing You.” The song is considered one of the all-time greatest pop/rock ballads. It topped the international charts and today remains a radio staple around the globe. The following up single, “Tears,” was a top 10 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. Continuing to evolve as both a songwriter and formidable stage presence, “Mask of Smiles” was released in 1985. The album included the hit melodies “Every Step of the Way” and “If Anybody Had a Heart,” which appeared on the soundtrack to the 1986 motion picture “About Last Night” starring Demi Moore. In 2014, Waite released “Best,” a greatest hits album that provides a snapshot representing the inspired artistic breadth of this legendary artist’s entire career tallying more than 40 years on the rock and roll highway. The album includes re-recorded versions of signature classics such as “Back on My Feet Again,” “Isn’t It Time” and “Missing You” as well as hard-hitting live renditions of “Head First,” “Saturday Night” and “Change.” “Songs, and songwriting keeps me inspired, moving forward,” Waite states on his Facebook page. “I tend to scribble down notes, lyrics or just random thoughts on pieces of paper, backs of cigarette packs, sometimes on my shirt cuff. Rock and roll is closest thing I’ve got to a spiritual power. It’s been the higher voice in my life and it’s never let me down.” Photo courtesy of CAPITOL THEATREJohn Waite plays Capitol Theatre June 1.

For information or to register, call 727-298-3322 or visit www. dfac.org. “Deadpool 2” – which is actually a better lm than its predecessor – made me think of Alexander Pope’s “The Rape of the Lock.” Before condemning me for comparing an R-rated superhero ick with a celebrated work by the 18th-century English poet, think about it. According to college professors who still include it in their curriculum, “The Rape of the Lock” is considered the best mock-heroic poem in English literature. Pope superimposed the high style of the traditional epic upon a real-life conict over something trivial. In doing so, the poet satirizes high society and made caricatures of the antagonists. To be honest, I don’t know if David Leitch, director of “Deadpool 2,” is a fan of Pope. But Leitch, along with the team of writers who worked on the script, certainly understand satire. “Deadpool 2,” like its predecessor, simultaneously lampoons and transcends the superhero genre through the use of meta references, in-jokes and self-deprecation. It’s important to note that all of that snark and vulgarity come from the character of Deadpool. Remove that character and the lm is just another run-ofthe-mill, no-frills superhero movie with no outstanding qualities to set it apart from its contemporaries. To be fair, Deadpool has never been a cookie-cutter superhero. Most of the giants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – characters such as Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow and Hulk – date back to the Silver Age of comic books, debuting in the 1960s. Captain America is the old man in the group, having made his rst appearance in 1941. Deadpool is a baby compared to all of those superheroes. He made his debut in issue 98 of “The New Mutants” in 1991. Before claiming his moniker, he was Wade Wilson, a mercenary and assassin. He earned the nickname “Merc with a Mouth” due to his proclivity for constant sarcasm. He is also known for breaking the fourth wall. In both print and film, he is an antihero cut from the same cloth as Snake Plissken, Max Rockatansky and Eastwood’s Man with No Name. Deadpool is the part Ryan Reynolds was born to play. He doesn’t smooth the character’s rough edges one bit – he makes them even more jagged and disheveled. At the same time, he gives glimpses into the pain behind the pessimism and the sorrow behind the cynicism. It is the writing that makes “Deadpool 2” superior to the previous lm. “Deadpool” never got beyond the basic origin story. Good as it was, it felt un nished. In “Deadpool 2,” Deadpool has to face the consequences of his work as a mercenary before dealing with Cable (Josh Brolin), a cybernetic soldier from the future determined to kill a young mutant named Russell Collins (Julian Dennison). Aiding him at various points in the story are X-Men members Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). Deadpool also enlists the help of some new heroes, with Domino (Zazie Beetz) playing the biggest role. Brolin gives a riveting performance as Cable. Kapicic’s Colossus is the straight man to wisecracking Deadpool, often providing an additional source of humor as a prim and proper goody-two-shoes preoccupied with cleaning up the antihero’s act to make him an upstanding X-Men member. Make no mistake: “Deadpool 2” is purposefully offensive and earns its R rating. The central character is irreverent and obscene. He’s less interested in jailing villains than chopping off their limbs – particularly if it’s shot in slow motion. Viewed from a certain perspective, it probably seems like a gory nihilistic orgy. Taken as superhero absurdism depicted in mock-heroic context, “Deadpool 2” is gleefully subversive and relentlessly funny. For more movie news, visit www. TBNweekly.com.

After evading violent raiders on motorbikes led by the Warlord (James Franco) and his enforcer (Cliff “Method Man” Smith), Prince meets Ash (Suki Waterhouse), the Warlord’s robot sex companion-assassin who’s in search of her own soul. As Prince is captured by the Druglord (Milla Jovovich), the Warlord’s forces roar in – and Prince ghts to save the remnants of humanity.‘Mary Shelley’Genre: Drama, romance and biography Cast: Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Douglas Booth, Joanne Froggatt and Stephen Dillane Director: Haifaa Al-Mansour Rated: PG-13 “Mary Shelley” tells the story of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) – author of “Frankenstein,” one of the world’s most famous Gothic novels – and her ery, tempestuous relationship with renowned romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (Douglas Booth.) The pair are two outsiders constrained by polite society but bound together by a natural chemistry and progressive ideas that are beyond the boundaries of their age and time. Mary and Percy declare their love for each other and much to her family’s horror they run away together, joined by Mary’s half-sister Claire (Bel Powley.) In the midst of growing tension within their relationship during their stay at Lord Byron’s (Tom Sturridge) house at Lake Geneva, the idea of Frankenstein is conceived when a challenge is put to all houseguests to write a ghost story. An incredible character is created, which will loom large in popular culture for centuries to come, but society at the time puts little value in female authors. At the tender age of 18, Mary is forced to challenge these preconceptions, to protect her work and to forge her own identity.‘In Darkness’Genre: Thriller Cast: Natalie Dormer, Ed Skrein and Emily Ratajkowski Director: Anthony Byrne Not yet rated A blind musician is pulled into London’s gritty criminal underworld after she hears a murder being committed in the apartment above her.

8B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, May 24, 2018CLEARWATER – Legendary rock musicians and cultural icons John Fogerty and ZZ Top will come together for the Blues and Bayous Tour, kicking off May 25 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Presented by Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road and the city of Clearwater, the tour makes a stop in the Tampa Bay area Saturday, June 2, 7 p.m., at Coachman Park, 301 Drew St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $40 and may be purchased through ETIX.com. For information, call 727-791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. For tour information and a complete list of tour dates, visit www.johnfo gerty.com and www.zztop.com. As co-founder of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Fogerty’s career spans 50 years and he is hailed as one of the most in uential musicians in rock history. As the writer, singer and producer of numerous classic hits including “Born on the Bayou,” “Green River,” “Proud Mary” and “Bad Moon Rising,” Fogerty has been honored as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists, 100 Greatest Songwriters and 100 Greatest Singers by Rolling Stone. Earning induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriters Hall of Fame and Baseball Hall of Fame, he is also a New York Times best-selling author for his memoir “Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music.” Fogerty’s fervent vocals and modernized rockabilly songs built on his classic guitar riffs made Creedence Clearwater Revival the preeminent American singles band of the late 1960s and early 1970s. CCR’s rough-hewn rockers often dealt with political and cultural issues, and the quartet appeared at the Woodstock Festival. Creedence had seven major hit singles in 1969 and 1970, including “Bad Moon Rising,” “Green River,” “Fortunate Son,” “Down on the Corner,” “Travelin’ Band,” “Up Around the Bend” and “Lookin’ Out My Back Door.” Immediately after the breakup of CCR, Fogerty released a bluegrass/ country album “The Blue Ridge Rangers,” on which he played all the instruments. Two songs, the Hank Williams classic “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)” and “Hearts of Stone,” made the Top 40. In 1985, Fogerty re-emerged with the album “Center eld,” a typically simple, tuneful collection that sold 2 million copies and produced hit singles in “The Old Man Down the Road,” “Rock and Roll Girls” and “Centereld.” “ZZ Top is one of my favorite bands, and Billy F. Gibbons is one of my all-time favorite guitarists,” Fogerty said in a press release announcing the tour. “Riffs, blues and bayous ... bucket list!” ZZ Top holds the distinction of being one of the longest running bands with the original line-up. Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard re ect their Texas roots in everything with their non-stop rock and blues, resulting in over 50 million albums sold worldwide. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Keith Richards, calling the band’s relationship to the blues, “the heart of the matter.” Somewhere in Houston in 1969, ZZ Top coalesced from the core of two rival bands. The new group debuted with the appropriately titled “ZZ Top’s First Album” in 1971 and followed up in 1972 with “Rio Grande Mud.” Both albums re ected their strong blues roots. The band’s third, 1973’s “Tres Hombres,” brought them national attention with the hit “La Grange,” still one of the band’s signature pieces today. The album “Fandango!” followed in 1975 and featured the hit “Tush.” The band’s momentum and success built during its rst decade, culminating in the legendary “World Wide Texas Tour,” with a production that included a longhorn steer, a buffalo, buzzards, rattlesnakes and a Texas-shaped stage. Following a lengthy hiatus during which the individual members of the band traveled the world, they switched labels from British Decca’s London label to Warner Bros. and returned with “Deguello” – which boasted fan favorites “I Thank You” and “Cheap Sunglasses” – and “El Loco” – which included the provocative songs “Tube Snake Boogie” and “Pearl Necklace.” By the time “Eliminator” was released in 1983, MTV had been around for a few years. ZZ Top experienced a paradigm shift as they incorporated a synthesizer, drum machine and sequencer and created serialized videos to help promote their music. The album charted songs such as “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Got Me Under Pressure,” “TV Dinners,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Legs.” The melding of grungy guitar-based blues with synth-pop was seamless and continued with the follow-up album “Afterburner” as they continued their chart juggernaut. ZZ Top has become a certi ed rock institution, contemporary in every way, yet still completely connected to the founding fathers of the genre. “John Fogerty along with ZZ Top have been followers of blues and rock since the beginning and we’re looking forward to rippin’ it up together this spring,” said ZZ Top’s Gibbons. “We’ve got a great show lined up for ya’!”Blues & Bayous City of Clearwater, Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road to present John Fogerty and ZZ Top at Coachman Park Photo courtesy of MAD INK PRJohn Fogerty, who co-founded Creedence Clearwater Revival, takes the stage June 2 at Clearwater’s Coachman Park.
