"I'm so excited about this," Jamie Giammona, marketing and event coordinator. "We have 20 authors with all different kinds of books." Authors attending represent a variety of genres, she said, from self-help to young adult ction. Staff at the independent living facility have long wanted to host such an event, Giammona added. But the timing was never quite right. Her interest in organizing an author event was revived earlier this year when she realized several people close to her were published authors. Her niece, Angela Parkhurst, is a young adult writer who authored The Forgotten Fairytale series. Meanwhile, her hairstylist, Maureen Sevilla, who writes under the pen name Eliza March, has published fantasy ction titles. Giammona said she hopes the event will appeal to "book clubs, bookworms and aspiring writers." Many residents of Lake Seminole Square are avid readers, she added. "We have a book club here that residents love and beautiful library," she said. Each writer will discuss their books and their background for 10 minutes each starting at 10:30 a.m. Refreshments will be served throughout the day. Free lunch will be provided to those who RSVP. For more information, contact Giammona at or 727-393-3932.

Seminole 3A Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018Late Historical Society president served community for many years By TOM GERMONDTampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE A longtime resident of the community who was recognized by Seminole officials for her outstanding volunteer work died at her home March 17. Dorothy Phillips, 96, had a 37year career in education, spending her last 10 years of teaching as a rst-grade teacher at Walsingham Elementary School. For 43 years Dorothy and her husband, the late Bill Phillips, lived at the Seminole Lake Country Club. Dorothy was a founding member of the Seminole Historical Society, where she served as its first president. She worked toward getting the society firmly established and known in the community, coordinating efforts to preserve Seminole's history in artifacts and documents, and nding a permanent home and meeting place for the society. In 2016 the Seminole City Council honored Phillips with the first Legacy Proclamation Award for her many years of community service as a volunteer for the city of Seminole, and presented the key to the city to her that evening, along with naming July 12, 2016, as "Dorothy Phillips Day." Dorothy loved working as a volunteer for the city of Seminole. Since 1964 she was associated with the Seminole Community Library in a multitude of capacities, as a member of the Friends of the Library, serving as its president for eight years, and helping to increase the friends' membership during her service as president from a few members to over 200. She also served on the St. Petersburg College Library Resource Committee and as chairperson of the Seminole Library Advisory Board. As a strong supporter of the Joint College and Community Library of Seminole, she helped in guiding the formation of the joint use library partnership between the City of Seminole and St. Petersburg College. Since 1963 she was a resident of Seminole and in 2006 moved from Seminole Lake Country Club to Lake Seminole Square. Over the past 15 years Dorothy performed stage readings of several former rst ladies, such as Dolley Madison, Lady Bird Johnson and Jacqueline Kennedy. Her neighbors and members of various community organizations enjoyed her well-researched and vigorously presented stage readings, in which Dorothy brought history to life. Dorothy was a member of Delta Kappa Gamma society for women educators, Chapter HK of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, and the PinellasSeminole Women's Club. Dorothy graduated with honors from the University of Florida with bachelor's and master's degrees in teaching exceptional children. Dorothy is survived by her son Bill Phillips of Seminole; her daughter Jamie Phillips Stone of Seminole and her granddaughters, Julie Phillips of Tampa, and Amy Phillips of Chicago.A private graveside service was previously held at the historical Seminole Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations either to Oakhurst United Methodist Church, 13400 Park Blvd., Seminole, FL 33776; the Seminole Historical Society, P.O. Box 7652, Seminole, FL 33775 Dorothy Phillips the interests of each resident, she said. For instance, one resident was a longtime ballroom dancer before moving into the facility. So, Arden Courts brought in a dance instructor. Other activities include cooking classes, card games, Ping Pong, art appreciation gatherings and a biography club. Additionally, Arden Courts is dedicated to community education, Ceasare said. The facility regularly offers caregiver seminars that are open to the public. Though no dates are currently set, Arden Courts locations in Largo and Palm Harbor will host 20th anniversary events later this year. For more information, visit www.arden-courts. com.

5A Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018 071218S


6A County Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018Commissioners hear update on Capital Improvement ProgramVoter approval of Penny IV allows advance funding for critical projects By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER Pinellas County commissioners listened to a lengthy update June 14 on the Capital Improvement Program as well as reports on projects recently completed or in the works. County staff maintains a sixyear CIP that is updated during the annual budget process for the next fiscal year. The first year of the CIP must be balanced and funds to pay for projects must be legally appropriated, explained Jackie Trainer with the Office of Management and Budget. The rest of the years in the program, in this case years two-six, reflect a nancial and production plan for the future needs. Trainer started with an overview for FY 19 CIP to be paid for from Enterprise Funds, including $22.5 million for the St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport, $14.5 million for the Water Department, $39.1 million for Sewer and $33.4 million for Solid Waste. She then talked about $222.1 million in projects to be paid for with Governmental Funds, which include $160.3 million in infrastructure sales surtax, aka Penny for Pinellas; $19.3 million in grant money; $17.5 million in Local Option Fuel Tax; $19.1 in Tourist Development Tax revenue; and $5.9 million from other revenues and fees. A breakdown of "where the funding goes" shows $92.9 million for transportation, $34 million for public safety, $32.6 million for general government services, $31.5 million for physical environment, $28.1 million for culture and recreation, $2.3 million for human services and $725,000 for economic environment. Trainer said voter approval of Penny IV for FY 2020-2030 took the uncertainty out of the ability to fund projects in the CIP after FY 2019, allowing staff to advance proposed Penny IV critical projects so they can be started sooner. She said requests had come in to begin preliminary design of 26 new Penny funded projects at a cost of $4.4 million. The plan is to do the design work in FY 2019 so the projects will be "shovel ready" in FY 2020, said County Administrator Mark Woodard. Requests for full funding for new Penny projects also are coming in and include $3 million for the Affordable Housing Land Assembly Fund, $2.2 million for Taylor Lake Seawall Replacement, $900,000 for Lakeshore Estates Phase 2 roadway and drainage, $1.8 million for sidewalks on 42nd Avenue North, $983,000 for an HVAC for the Lealman Community Campus, $1.6 million for replacement of dog kennels at Animal Services, $10 million to replace radio equipment shelters, $4.5 million to replace the EMS Ridgecrest radio tower and equipment shelter and $3 million for the Redington rescue station. Requests for new Penny funded projects, including the preliminary design, total $32.2 million. Woodard said some of the Graphic courtesy of OMBThe $222.1 million in projects to be paid for with Governmental Funds include $160.3 million in infrastructure sales surtax, a.k.a. Penny for Pinellas; $19.3 million in grant money; $17.5 million in Local Option Fuel Tax; $19.1 million in Tourist Development Tax revenue; and $5.9 million from other revenues and fees.

To submit an application, visit Spring and summer bring elevated outside temperatures that can be life threatening to ourselves and to our pets. Every year hundreds of pets die because they are left in parked cars, tethered outside without shade and water, or exercised in hot, humid weather. Heat stroke is a serious threat in Florida. Brachycephalic (short nosed) breeds (Pug, Boston Terrier, Bulldog, Pekingese, and Lhasa Apso) can be more susceptible to heat stroke because panting in these breeds is less effective in decreasing body temperature compared to others. Young dogs that overexert themselves and older dogs with pre-existing diseases are also vulnerable. Dogs have sweat glands only on their feet so sweating will not cool them like it does for us. A normal temperature in a dog or cat is around 101.5 F plus or minus 1-2 degrees. It is considered an emergency when a dog or cat's temperature rises above 105 F. Extremely elevated body temperatures can cause multi-systemic organ failure leading to death. Symptoms of heat stroke include restlessness, panting, excessive drooling, unsteadiness, bright red gums, muscle tremors, seizures, dif culty breathing, increased heart rate, bloody vomit or feces, shock, cardiac arrest, and/or behavior changes. If your pet is showing these signs, remove your pet from the heat source. It would make perfect sense to use ice cold water to decrease core body temperature; however, emerging a dog that is suffering from heat stroke in an ice cold bath could cause serious complications. This may cause constriction of the blood vessels in the skin that will trap heat inside the body. Tap water (room temperature or slightly cool) is recommended in order to cool a heat stroke victim. The goal is to decrease the body temperature to about 103 F. If your dog has heat stroke, it is important that you do not leave him/her unattended for at least 24 hours. Take your pet to a veterinarian immediately to be monitored for serious complications. Some of the symptoms noted above may not occur until later in the day. Leaving pets in a car to run a quick errand can be deadly as temperatures in a parked car may increase by 40 F within one hour. Even on a relatively cool day (70 F) dogs have perished when left in a parked car. Cracking a window will not make a difference even if the car is parked in the shade. Walk your pets in the early morning or late evening when it is cooler. Don't leave them outside for extended periods of time. Also, you do need to worry about their feet as the hot cement and sand can burn their pads. If it is hot to the touch to your foot then it is hot for their feet as well. If you love your pet enough to take them with you, then love them enough to never leave them in a car with the ignition off.

County 9A Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018projects could be completed in one year, such as replacement of the dog kennels at Animal Services, and some projects would take several years. Trainer also reviewed several CIP projects to be funded from Transportation Trust Fund reserves at a cost of $17 million during FY 2019 and FY 2020. These projects include LED street light replacement at $1.25 million, sidewalks at $3.5 million, roadway resurfacing at $5.5 million, bridge rehabilitation at $1.5 million, Belleair Road Complete Street design at $250,000, safety improvements at $1 million, and $4.3 million in Intelligent Transportation System and Advanced Traf c Management System projects, which would be funded by the 9th cent fuel tax. Woodard told commissioners about what he called a "structural imbalance" in the Transportation Trust Fund due to less revenue coming in from the gas tax. He said revenue coming into the fund remains at while the cost of expenditures is going up. He said Penny revenue could be used for capital expenses but not operations and maintenance. Additional money will be needed to pay for expenses in the future, he said, adding that the Commission could consider an additional gas tax levy.Aubrey Phillips, who takes care of OMB's Strategic Performance Management, updated commissioners on staff's plan to use a "portfolio approach" for CIP projects. She said using portfolio management for capital projects would help prioritize and manage development to provide the best value to the county. Using the portfolio approach, projects with multiple bene ts would move to the top of the list. The plan calls for starting to use the new method in FY 2019 with full implementation in FY 2020. Woodard said it would be important to communicate the reason for the new method to the public and make sure that some don't feel neglected when their project doesn't make it to the top of the list. An example of a portfolio approach on a roadway project would take into consideration not only the roadway itself but additional needs such as drainage and sidewalks. The plan is to do all the work at one time so areas aren't impacted more than once by construction. For more information about the CIP, visit www. htm.Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

10A Schools Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018 NotebookPinellas School District highlights improvements in school grades By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO Pinellas County School District recently announced that many of its schools had shown improvement in the 2018 school grades report released June 27 by the Florida Department of Education. For the fourth consecutive year, the District maintained a B grade on a scale ranging from A-F and improved its overall score 22 points across the school grade categories, according to a press release. The District also showed improvement in eight of 11 categories, of cials said. In the press release, District of cials said they were "especially proud of the overall performance of our high schools and middle schools, and is pleased that a vast majority of schools throughout the district earned an A, B or C." "Our dedicated teachers and school leaders have worked diligently to improve academic achievement in all of our schools. I am encouraged by the progress we have achieved, particularly in our high schools. I am con dent Pinellas will actualize the goal of becoming an A district, with every school earning an A or B," said Michael Grego, Pinellas County Schools superintendent. According to school grade improvements highlighted by the District, 90 percent of all Pinellas schools earned an A, B or C and nearly half had an A or B. In addition, every Pinellas high school earned an A, B or C grade. Overall, the number of schools scoring an A increased from 32 to 36. District of cials pointed out that six schools improved to an A: Frontier Elementary, Oldsmar Elementary, Orange Grove Elementary, Palm Harbor Middle, Palm Harbor University High School and Southern Oak Elementary. Six schools improved to a B: Clearwater High, Countryside High, Largo High, North Shore Elementary, Osceola Middle and Pinellas Park High School. Five schools improved to a C: Azalea Middle, Largo Middle, Maximo Elementary, Mildred Helms Elementary and John M. Sexton Elementary. In addition, two schools improved by two letter grades: Southern Oak Elementary improved from a C to an A and Azalea Middle from an F to a C. Four alternative education sites improved their rating, including Clearwater Intermediate, Lealman Innovation Academy, Pinellas Gulf Coast Academy and Richard L. Sanders School. However, not all the news was positive. Twenty- ve schools lost at least one letter grade, according to a report released by the state. Four of those schools received an F, including Campbell Park Elementary, which went from a C to an F; Lakewood Elementary, D to F; Ponce De Leon Elementary, C to F; and Pinellas Virtual K-12, C to F. An additional five schools declined two letter grades from an A to a C: Bear Creek Elementary, Curlew Creek Elementary, Leila Davis Elementary, Lakeview Fundamental Elementary and Lake St. George Elementary. The Florida Department of Education calculates school grades annually based on up to 11 components, including student achievement and learning gains on statewide standardized assessments and high school graduation rate. Some highlights of performance of schools statewide include an increased number earning an A in 2018. According to a press release from Gov. Rick Scott, the state now has 1,027 schools with a grade of A, up from 987 in 2017 and 763 in 2016. The percentage of schools earning an A increased to 32 percent, up from 30 percent in 2016-17. High schools had the largest increase in the percentage of schools improving their grade, with 26 percent (115 schools) moving up one or more letter grade. The number of schools earning an F decreased by 23 percent (10 schools), from 43 schools in 2016-17 to 33 schools in 2017-18, and 96 percent of schools graded F in 2016-17 improved their grade in 201718 by one or more letter grade (23 of 24 schools).

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018All this talk about civility is making me crotchety. It's hard to be civil when I get numerous daily reminders that I'm a senior 64 years old in case you want to know. If I get one more phone call from the Medusas of Medicare trying to sell me their snake oil, I swear I'll I'll Not sure what I'll do since I can't reach into the telephone and apply my stapler to their slimy forked tongues. And here comes that darn earworm again: “When I get older losing my hair, many years from now … when I’m 64.” Cursing at the callers seem to cause the opposite of the intended effect because the more I swear at the Medusas, the more they breed. I can't sign up for Medicare until September and yet I'm deluged daily with their calls. I'm spending hours trying to interpret all the nuances of Medicare's Part A, B, C, etc. Tempted to go to Part S: "Screw it." I'll just sign up for the same plan a buddy has and hope Medicare doesn't leave me destitute or drive me nuts. Seek help? I date a psychologist, and she knows I'm waaay beyond help. And I think she's getting the earworm, too. “When I get older losing my hair … will you be calling me crotchety?” That's more like it. How do I embrace civility when we are surrounded by mayhem? Take driving. I like road trips, but I hate traf c. Frequently, I run with the wildebeests on I-4, on my way to Central Florida, where my girlfriend lives. If you think I'm a few clowns short of a circus now, you should hear me by the time I reach her place. "That $@#$%% intersection at I-27 was backed up for miles. You'd think by all the $@#$%% traffic congestion in the area, the theme parks were offering free admission and close encounters with wildlife which would be safer than traveling on I-4." As I was sandwiched among the wildebeests in that area a couple of Saturdays ago, I noticed that a vehicle was weaving from lane to lane. What the $@#$%% is wrong with t hat guy? I muttered to myself. How am I supposed to act civil when I'm irting with death every time I make the trek across the state? And now Gov. Scott nally comes around to getting on board mass transit; a high-speed rail is proposed that would link Tampa and Orlando. Better late than never, I guess. Transit opponents need not worry. If ridership is at, maybe the trains can be put to good use transporting accident victims to the hospitals or the morgues. Yeah, I know. I'm cynical as well as crotchety. And as I write, my cell phone is ringing again. Ain't answering it. In fact, in this day and age, with all the concerns about scams and identity theft, I think that making cold calls to individuals is not a good strategy for acquiring customers especially to those of us who are "getting older, losing my hair," to quote Paul McCartney singing the Beatles' "When I'm 64." Shoo, you darn earworms. I doubt Sir McCartney gets calls from solicitors. Bet he doesn't have to run with wildebeests, either. Civility is overrated. Here's what also makes me uncivil: New and improved products, such as razor blades. Why does corporate America keep trying to build a better mousetrap? Makes me uncivil enough to lacerate myself every time I shave. Computers. Would love to buy one that has all the programs I need installed. Buying a new laptop these days is like buying a car without wheels. And I hope it will be easier to sign up for Medicare than installing software. Endless strings of commercials between television programs especially movies. I'd rather shave than listen to them. Lobbies or waiting rooms in some medical and other professional of ces. The magazines and other reading material in these places are often ancient. I get uncivil and crotchety if I have to watch daytime television or stare at a terrarium or a framed college degree while I'm waiting for somebody to poke or probe me. Such moments invite earworms, too. So I bring my own magazines, sometimes National Geographics, and leave them for others once I'm summoned to the world beyond the waiting rooms. Yeah, I know, if I'd buy something more sophisticated than a ip phone to play with, I'd have something to do and be less prone to suffering from earworms. Once I'm through battling the Medusas of Medicare, this crotchety, uncivil cheapskate might warm up to the idea of buying a magic box, aka a smartphone. When I’m 65. Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. He can be reached at 727397-5563, ext. 330, or by an email at tgermond@ Tom Germond In the 1964 musical "Fiddler on the Roof," the main character, Tevye, told his village friends what he (a milkman) would do "If I were a rich man." Many of us have toyed with that fantasy; then we've gone back to the reality of our bank accounts. Lately I've been thinking of what I might do if, in a miracle, I'd be granted (A) unlimited funds to spend as I chose to, and (B) another hundred years to live. After studying recent predictions on how the world is going, I came up with a few ideas on how I might wisely use my vast wealth. (1) My rst thought would involve real estate. I would buy coastal properties and acreage at least five miles inland and 60 feet above sea level. That move should protect me from the ooding that will almost certainly occur during the next century or so, especially in Florida. I have wondered if and when coastline homeowners from Pensacola to Miami to Jacksonville will be trapped in a sudden sellers' market. Perhaps that trend has already begun. I'd also invest in properties situated safely distant from any river, creek, pond or lake. Weather experts have said the frog-strangling deluges of recent years may continue to descend on waterways and, in a few short hours, wash away homes, businesses and entire towns. (2) However, I would plow billions of my dollars into water its preservation, production, puri cation and desalination. Our nation's water resources are already in danger from population growth, droughts, pollution, and Flint, Michigan, style mismanagement. As I write this, other countries notably Iran and South Africa are in big trouble because of existing or oncoming water shortages. The scientists and nanciers who can solve humankind's water problems will be swimming in unimaginable wealth. (3) What will it take to reduce the number of gun-related deaths in the USA, especially in our schools and colleges? Ban all weapons? Tighten the laws of gun use and purchase? Very unlikely. The gun lobby already controls a large percentage of lawmakers in Washington and state capitals. That is not likely to change in years to come. So, what can we do? One possibility (although a sad one): make body armor a standard item of clothing, especially for school children, who seem to be a favorite target of demented shooters. Bullet-resistant vests will not be an easy item to sell to the public, but such garments can substantially reduce the target zones presented by potential victims. As body armor research and development grow, investors in this commercial area will seldom end up collecting welfare. (4) I'm not sure if or when the USA will achieve just and manageable immigration policies. Today immigration especially involving refugees trying to escape the hellholes in their home countries has become a political football that will not shrink in size soon. One thing seems likely: America is not going to slam our doors and completely shut out people who want to come here to live. If you or I don't like the sound of foreign languages in our midst, we'd better not venture past our front doors. So, let's learn to deal with it. As the Stoics like to say, "Id est quod id est." It is what it is. If I had unlimited dollars to spend as I saw t, I would establish a thousand language centers throughout our land. Their purpose would be to teach spoken and written English to every newcomer. I'd also have classes to teach any of 50 foreign languages and dialects to those of us who grow up speaking English. Would all of this completely halt the con ict, misunderstanding and mistrust that now dominate immigration debate? Probably not. But it would help. And from the sound of things, we're going to need all the help we can get. Real estate, water, bullet-proof vests and language training. I grant you, that's not a very impressive or creative list of suggestions on how to nancially cope with the tsunami of problems coming our way in the next century or so. But as the 4-foot-tall man said when as he married the 8-foot tall woman, "You've got to start somewhere."

I don't know what the Council is thinking but accessibility to their of ces by the citizens has been ignored. I am handicapped and on several occasions have had to go to City Hall on personal business. Parking for anyone is a breeze especially the handicapped. Just where is anyone, especially the handicapped, supposed to park to get to our elected of cials? This supposed savings of $50,000 per year is nothing but pocket change to Clearwater's budget. Have they considered the increased cost of moving the meeting to the library? Here again, what about handicapped access? And will the library be open on meeting days, which will make parking even worse. For years now there has been talk of replacing City Hall with a commercial building. For what? First it was the building was 50 years old and needed replacement. I guess more than half the homes in Clearwater need to be torn down because they are over 50 years old. To me the City Hall and its location are ideal. To me the Hall is the best looking building in downtown Clearwater and does not need replacement. If Council members don't like the building then don't run for re-election. John Blechschmidt ClearwaterTides’ closing ruf es snowbird’s feathers Editor: With respect to the closing of the Tides golf course: The reasons given are a bunch of nonsense. I am a December-March snowbird in Madeira Beach and play at the Tides at least twice a week with 8-16 friends. We usually have to wait for even larger groups (up to 80 players) to nish their outing before we can start. There never seem to be any open tee times. In fact the Tides is noted for being one of the more crowded courses in the area. The claim that there is "no support from the gol ng community" is simply not true. The new carts last year were much appreciated, but they aren't of much use if there is no golf course. I hope the responsible Seminole of cials will take a close look at what the truth is behind the closing.

LOL Bob, and to go on like you did and to end your bit with the children crying and the vision they hold on each of us, and it would Bob, if it were all true. Do you not realize each day felons of us citizens are arrested for violations and their children pulled? Sadly, most those bringing the children are doing so to advance their chances. You don't believe in securing our boarder; I do. And plenty of the Trump supporters do. I am so proud of Trump and what he is doing. Facts are facts and this president will be considered one of the best ever perhaps. Be negative and knock the president. That's not a band wagon I care to show my children, grand kids. To me Bob, that's really sad and not very American! Bob Davis ClearwaterBicyclists should use paths on bridge’s roadway Editor: I have written before about picking up glass on the Belleair Beach Causeway walkway, and now I have to write about me having to be picked up off of the walkway. I was taking my morning walk recently about 7:30 on a Sunday and heading back down toward the beach when a man walking towards me moved over to my side of the walkway. As I moved to my left to let him pass, I was slammed in the back of my leg by a bicyclist. Neither the man walking toward me nor the man on the bike ever said a word to warn me although after the fact the walking man said he should have told me he was coming. The bike and bicyclist both landed on me and left his tire tracks on the back of my leg. After both men pulled me up and took off, I called my husband to come pick me up. I ended up having to get X-rays and had a severe sprain of the ankle. I have always tried to be courteous of bicyclists on the road and don't understand two things. #1. Why was he riding on the walkway when there is a marked bicycle path on the roadway? #2. Why didn't he warn me he was coming at a fast speed behind me? This unfortunate accident hasn't stopped me from walking the causeway but I'm enjoying the beautiful scenery less due to looking behind me more. Patsy Sullivan Indian Rocks BeachCharity, respect for laws begins at homeEditor: As the heat rises in political rhetoric about the borders, such as separated families, an image without truth clouds the hearts and minds of the nation's conversation. What is the truth? Parental irresponsibility, children being used as pawns and human traf cking come to mind. We are a nation of laws. Another truth focuses upon the homelessness and hunger our own American children are experiencing. In 2014, NBC News reported that one in 30 American children or about 2.5 million are homeless. Charity and respect for our laws both begin at the home. Let us not forget it.

12A Business Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018Revenge of the NerdsIf success is the best revenge, then Largo geek bar has silenced doubters after capturing national acclaim in its rst year By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO About 10 days after Waypoint 6 Tavern & Geekery opened, a patron of the bar that had been there before, O'Houston's Irish Tavern, walked in, looked around and ordered a beer. When he nished, he paid and told co-owner Kevin Daniels his bar would be shut down in three months and walked out. "Whoever that guy is, come July 21 is one year, and we won," Daniels said. Tampa Bay's first geek bar, which caters to avid gamers, cosplayers, fans and nerds, didn't just win by surviving the always dif cult rst year. As it prepares for its rst anniversary party later this month, it has plenty more to celebrate, including recently being selected by the Syfy network's website, Syfy Wire, as the fth-best geek bar in the U.S. or Canada. "The only way it could get better is if George Lucas walked in here and gave us the thumbs-up and went nice job," said Daniels, a Star Wars superfan who owns the tavern off Ulmerton Road with his wife, Stephanie, and mother, Marsha. When Stephanie found out about the list via Twitter in June, she was so excited she couldn't even get the words out to tell Kevin, so she just pulled the article up online for him. "I mean we're in the list with places in New York, California, Canada, Las Vegas and then there's Largo, Florida," Kevin said. This isn't the first time, Waypoint 6 has received national attention online. About a month after opening, when football season was ramping up, Stephanie placed a sign on the door in an effort to inform new customers of what they were walking into. It read in part: "Sports Fans. Please be advised this is not a sports bar! Waypoint 6 Tavern & Geekery was designed by geeks for geeks to enjoy all of their geeky delights. We do not have a cable sports package. We will not be showing sports unless it is BattleBots, drone racing or Quidditch. There are over eighty-seven sports bars in this area to choose from but only one geekery." It didn't take long for a picture of the sign to go viral and for the nerd community to rejoice. "Last time we looked, it had like 700,000 views," Stephanie said. "We were getting messages from people in like New Zealand, Australia, Germany asking when are you going to open one here?" "The guy from Australia was like, I'm digging a hole from Brisbane right now to you,'" Kevin added. Local customers are also starting to take notice, if only by reading the sign. "We had one guy who said, I drove by and saw your sign. It looked weird. I pulled in. I looked at the sign and it said Geekery. It can't be. Is this place all about stuff for nerds and geeks?' We were like, yes it is," Kevin said. "He was like, I'm home.'" Lifelong geeksWhile Internet fame happened upon them quickly, the road to opening Waypoint 6 was much longer in the making for Kevin and Stephanie, who say they were proud geeks long before it became trendy. "From Day 1, I grew up watching Star Trek' with my dad, or Creature Feature on Channel 44 every Saturday," said Kevin, whose family moved to the area at a young age. Not to be outdone, Stephanie, who was raised in Largo and went to Ridgecrest Elementary and Seminole High School, said she remembers faking an illness just so she could stay home and nish the "Lord of the Rings." The self-proclaimed theater nerds even met at the Bay Area Renaissance Festival when it was in Largo. Kevin was directing the human chess match and Stephanie was part of the street cast. Kevin continues to work at festivals and conventions, performing a stage combat comedy show. His skill isn't limited to swords, though. For 10 years, Kevin served as a Kenneth City police officer. He had hoped to keep his job and still run the tavern, but he learned a state statute makes it a misdemeanor for a sworn law enforcement of cer to own an establishment that sells liquor. So, now he teaches rearms and vehicle operations at the police academy. "I still get to do all the fun stuff, all the driving and shooting and not all the paperwork," he said. The tavern’s about what?Before law enforcement, he was a commercial fisherman with his family, who had owned a seafood restaurant on Seminole Boulevard. About two years ago, his family was looking for a new venture when Kevin suggested giving the food and beverage business another shot but with a twist. "We pitched them this idea, and it was met with some skeptic looks," he said. Family members weren't the only ones who needed convincing. When hunting for locations, the couple had to nd a simple way of explaining the business to real estate agents. "We eventually had to start explaining it like someplace the guys from the Big Bang Theory' would go hangout," Stephanie said. "Or like a Beef O Brady's for nerds. You can bring kids. There's no sports. Some people are going to be drinking, some people aren't." A year's worth of hunting paid off when they came across the former Irish pub that already had the look and feel they were hoping for. All they had to do was change some of the decor by adding some nerdy touches, such as paintings, comic books and memorabilia. "Eighty percent of everything on the walls is ours from our house, and then the rest of it is from artists and people who have donated," Kevin said. The tavern also features a full menu of comfort food and drinks that re ects genres from Star Trek to Harry Potter. Some of the items include Dragon Ball Cheeze (pimento cheese fritters), Alien Eggs (jalapeno poppers) and Mario's fried mushrooms, while the kids' menu is under the heading you guessed it "The Next Generation." Waypoint also hosts several events, such as watch parties for shows like "The Walking Dead," trivia nights or most recently its Summerween, which gave the Danielses an excuse to celebrate their favorite holiday, Halloween, twice. Something for everybodyWhile the point of Waypoint might be fun and games, the couple said the most satisfying part of the rst year has been how the tavern brings different kinds of people together. Whether it's the customer who comes in with a tie and briefcase to play Magic the Gathering or a woman who learns about live-action role playing from other patrons so she can better understand her grandson, the Danielses say the tavern is for everybody. "That's the best thing about this place," Stephanie said. "You don't have to be a fan of everything, but somewhere they (patrons) are going to nd that common ground." The tavern is also a place to gather for like-minded patrons to discuss or argue their favorite topics, such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When "Avengers: Infinity War" came out, "we practically had to have support groups in here," Kevin said. "These groups like to come here because we cater to them. We're their people." With Orlando and its scores of themed restaurants and bars nearby, Stephanie said the hardest part has been living up to everybody's expectations.

Business 13A Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018 By CHRIS GEORGE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO In 2016, Albertsons Companies invested roughly $10 million into rebranding and renovating its Largo Mall store into a Safeway in a bid to battle Publix and Winn-Dixie for market share in the Tampa Bay area. It appears the investment was for naught, as Publix announced June 28 that it has entered into an agreement to purchase Safeway's only three Florida stores, which includes the one at Largo Mall. The others are in Altamonte Springs and Oakland Park. "Publix continues to look for ways to expand within our operating area to better serve our customers," Publix CEO and President Todd Jones said in a press release. "We are excited for this opportunity to acquire existing stores within our home state." The store at 10500 Ulmerton Road, which is just down the road from another Publix at 10411 Ulmerton Road, will continue operating as a Safeway until early September, but its pharmacy will close before then. Posters will be displayed within the pharmacy to advise customers once their prescriptions have transferred to the Publix pharmacy. According to a press release, Safeway employees will be encouraged to pursue job opportunities at Publix and will be provided with details on how to apply for employment. A grand opening date is expected to be announced within the fourth quarter of this year, according to Publix spokesman Brian West. It took about six months of work and millions of dollars to revamp what was Tampa Bay's last Albertsons into the Safeway store, which had its grand opening in June 2016. The grocer hoped the store's fresh look, which included a Starbucks, on-site juice station, pizza bar and sushi bar, and new services such as grocery delivery, would help it compete with the Lakeland-based Publix, which has dominated the industry in Florida. Publix, the largest employee-owned grocery chain in the U.S., employs more than 190,000 people at its 1,187 store locations, 787 of which are in Florida. In 2017, its retail sales reached $34.6 billion and show no signs of slowing, as the grocer's sales in the rst quarter of 2018 were $9.3 billion, a 6.8 percent increase from last year's $8.7 billion.So long, SafewayPublix buys grocer’s three Florida stores, including the one at Largo Mall 727-596-2995  WeSellPinellas.com081017 America’s Leading Discount Real Estate Company WeWill Sell Your Home For As Low As$2,995!PAID AT CLOSING 070518 071218 Century 21 Real Estate Champions4350 Duhme Road, Madeira Beach, FL  www.c21c h a m Amazing community located on Seminole By-Pass Canal, backs up to Lake Seminole Park.

14A Faith & Family Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018What’s your child’s playlist when it comes to social media?It's summer and that means most kids are out of school, on vacation and have more time to be on their phones or other electronics. It's the age we live in and we can't do too much about it. As a mom, I try to keep up with my kids and what they are doing on their electronics. I have two daughters ages 12 and 13, so as you can imagine they are on either their phones or iPads quite a bit. What's interesting is what my kids do on their phones and iPads. Most of the time they are watching videos made by YouTubers. YouTubers are people who create videos and usually star in the videos. These videos can be anything from their everyday life to do-it-yourself (DIY) videos. These YouTubers or video creators have a fan base. It's incredible when you really start learning about this whole new world of social media stars. These YouTubers are like Hollywood actors and actresses; most of them though aren't on the big screen or on television. They are on social media sites, mainly YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and And yes, they do make money, some of them make millions of dollars. I recently went with my girls and my friend's twin boys to a convention called Playlistlive in Orlando. It's a place where fans and YouTubers meet. I took my older daughter Randi by herself the year before and she loved it so much that my other daughter Graci wanted to go this year. It's the eighth year the convention has gone on and it truly was an eye opener to me. I had no idea what it was all about until going the rst year and this year I learned even more about this whole new world of social media from how my kids are in uenced to how companies are marketing. This convention had all types of YouTubers and creators. There are about 500 of them and more than 13,000 fans from all over the United States. The convention sells out every year. It is three days long and brings in fans from all walks of life and ages, mainly from 13-25 with about 80 percent who are female. The event includes concerts, panels, meet-and-greets and a fan convention. My kids have their list of YouTubers they watch daily and some of them were at this convention. They also met new people whom they now follow. When you buy your passes, you can purchase meet-and-greets with the YouTuber or creator you want to meet. These meet-and-greets are great for the fans. The fans get to talk to their favorite celebrities, take photos and get autographs. The YouTubers are wonderful and really take time with each fan. Most of the kids I saw and talked to love this part of the event. Some were even star struck. It's funny as a parent to watch some of the YouTubers who have a huge following go in the lobby of the hotel and have kids yelling and chasing them down the hall. It's as if the Beatles were there. I am not kidding! There's lots of security at this event, so not to worry too much, but still you have to watch your kids. I found there was plenty to do throughout the three days. My kids had meet-and-greets and we watched some of the concerts. One of the concerts my daughter Randi loved was with Scotty Sire, a YouTuber who does daily vlogs and some music. She actually had been practicing one of his songs, "Mr. Glassman," on piano for a few months prior and when she heard he was coming to Playlist, she was so excited to see him live. Yes, she even got a photo with him when he was walking down the hall. The convention has an area where merchandise is sold. This year there were more vendors. I always like to ask the vendors how the YouTubers help them with their products. One of the vendors was trying to launch a makeup website called wheesearch, where they help people find the right makeup products. They were looking for a vlogger to help them out. I interviewed the founder of the company and she told me by the end of the convention it looked like they had found someone. Another company, Crofter's Premium Spread, sells organic jams and they were there because last year a YouTuber, Thomas Sanders, said in one of his videos, "This is the only jelly I'll put in my belly," and their jelly sales skyrocketed. They ended up making him a spokesperson for their jelly and even came out with a special jelly called "Logan's Berry" named after one of the characters on his YouTube channel. They were giving out samples at the convention and of course my daughter had me buy it. Yes, YouTubers are huge influencers on our kids of today. It's important to know who your kids are watching.

For venue information, visit The Grammy Award-winning, acclaimed alternative rock pioneers hit the road July 12 for a 36-city tour produced by Live Nation. “Some 30 years ago, as The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha and I began a musical journey in the cramped rear bedroom of my father’s house,” Corgan said in a press release promoting the tour. “And so it’s magic to me that we’re able to coalesce once more around the incredible Jimmy Chamberlin, to celebrate those songs we’ve made together.” The monumental tour, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation, will highlight music from the group’s inception through 2000, and will exclusively feature material from their groundbreaking debut “Gish” through “Siamese Dream,” “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness,” “Adore,” and “Machina.” Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will also take part, as the band moves to a three-guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums. “This show and staging will be unlike any we’ve ever done and will feature a set unlike any we’ve ever played,” said Corgan. “For if this is a chance at a new beginning, we plan on ushering it in with a real bang.” Formed in Chicago, Illinois, in 1988, The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album “Gish” in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993’s multi-platinum “Siamese Dream” and 1995’s multi-platinum “Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.” With nine studio albums and over 30 million albums sold to date, the band remains an in uential force in alternative rock.

Please include contact information. A&E, from page 2BHere’s the buzz: 2018 is really a good year for Marvel Studios. In February, the much-anticipated lm “Black Panther” hit theaters. Directed by Ryan Coogler, the lm has grossed more than $1.34 billion globally. According to Box Of ce Mojo, it is the highest-grossing solo superhero lm to date – as well as the ninth highest-grossing lm of all time. In April, Marvel Studios launched its next blockbuster. “Avengers: In nity War” brought together all the threads that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, pitting the studio’s pantheon of superheroes against Thanos. The lm grossed $2.039 billion, making it the fourth highest-grossing lm of all time. Both “Black Panther” and “Avengers: In nity War” boasted some fairly heavy thematic content. The latter ended on a stunning cliffhanger, and fans will have to wait until next May to nd out what happens. In the meantime, Marvel Studios mercifully delivered a mid-summer treat. “Ant-Man and The Wasp” is the perfect blend of high-octane action and light-hearted humor. In this outing, the heroes aren’t facing an extinction-level event or an omnipotent foe – so relax, sit back and enjoy the fun, breezy rollercoaster ride. The lm addresses the aftermath of the events that took place in “Captain America: Civil War.” Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man, is dealing with the consequences of his siding with Captain America against the Avengers, violating the Sokovia Accords. Under house arrest, Lang has effectively disavowed his role as a superhero to focus on being a better father. When circumstances reunite him with Hope van Dyne, aka The Wasp, and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang has a dif cult decision to make. What makes “Ant-Man and The Wasp” so much fun? For starters, the scale-shifting action sequences. As amazing as it sounds, seeing things that are supposed to be big suddenly shrunk down to a fraction of their size can be hilarious. Likewise, seeing commonly diminutive objects suddenly enlarged beyond expectation evokes laughter. It’s all in the timing, and this lm gets it right over and over again. Paul Rudd makes Ant-Man work: He’s an imperfect superhero, awkward, looking for direction but re exively compelled to do the right thing. Rudd brings charm and a keen sense of comic timing to the role. He underscores Ant-Man’s oa shness along with his integrity. The professional superhero in this lm is clearly The Wasp. Evangeline Lilly owns the role, depicting the character as ercely con dent, courageous and compassionate. Director Peyton Reed injects pathos into the role of Ava Starr, a woman with molecular instability. She nds herself at odds with the protagonist due to her predicament. Starr is portrayed by Hannah JohnKamen. The lm also features solid performances by veteran actors Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne. Reprising his role as Luis, Michael Pea’s comedic contribution to the lm cannot be overstated. Although Ant-Man appeared in “Captain America: Civil War,” the character exists in a cozy corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “The rst ‘Ant-Man’ was a deliberately smaller, more intimate movie,” said Reed in the film’s production notes. “I like that about the Ant-Man universe, and really in ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ we’re doubling down on that.” Audiences may not feel the same kind of deep emotional attachment to these characters as they did for T’Challa, Nakia and Shuri in “Black Panther,” but that doesn’t make them less compelling. If anything, the personal relationships in this lm – particularly between Scott and Hope as well as the father-daughter relationship between Scott and Cassie – are surprisingly tender and well rendered. With a lm this fun, it’s easy to ignore the fact that the science is all technobabble uff. It’s equally easy to forget the heaviness of the apocalyptic MCU lms framing this lighthearted, spirited side adventure.

Tickets start at $39. Call 727791-7400 or visit www.atthecap. com. Comedian, actor, television writer, author, and musician Paul Reiser has spent more than 30 years acting in Oscar and Emmy award-winning movies and television shows. He was voted one of Comedy Central’s Top 100 Comedians of All Time. The New York-bred and Los Angeles-based Reiser has made a number of appearances on screen and even lent his talents behind the camera. Reiser has had notable performances in lms such as “Diner,” “Bye Bye Love,” “The Marrying Man,” “Aliens,” “One Night at McCool’s” and “Beverly Hills Cop.” He also co-created and starred in the critically acclaimed NBC series “Mad About You,” which garnered him multiple Emmy, Golden Globe, American Comedy Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations. More recently, Reiser earned acclaim for his supporting role in the 2015 Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-winning lm “Whiplash,” starring JK Simmons and Miles Teller. Reiser’s book “Couplehood” has sold over 2 million copies and reached the No. 1 spot on The New York Times Bestseller List. Reiser’s second bestseller, “Babyhood,” features his trademark humorous take on the adventures of being a first-time father, followed by his third bestseller, “Familyhood.” More recently, Reiser created and produced the seven-episode series ‘There’s … Johnny!’ The series, which Reiser co-created with filmmaker David Steven Simon and co-produced with David Gordon Green, intertwines authentic footage from “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” with the coming-of-age story of Andy, a wide-eyed 19-year-old Nebraskan who stumbles into a job at the iconic show. The show premiered on Hulu in November, receiving praise for its warmth and creative use of vintage footage. Reiser joined the cast of Net ix’s “Stranger Things” for the series’ highly anticipated second season, which was released in October and recently renewed for a third season. In a role created by the Duffer brothers with him specifically in mind, Reiser played Dr. Owens, a high-ranking member of the Department of Energy who is brought to the small town to investigate the supernatural situations at play. Reiser collaborates once again with David Gordon Green as well as with Steven Soderbergh on the critically-acclaimed hit Amazon series “Red Oaks.” Reiser’s role as Doug Getty, the president of a New Jersey country club in a nostalgic ’80s themed setting, was called “one of his absolute nest, not just of late, but of ever.” The show’s third and nal season premiered in October.

Running low on air, the team must work together when a vicious alien boards their ship and hunts them down, determined to become the dominant species. But the key to survival may be the secret that is buried deep within Miller’s own mind.‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot’Genre: Drama and biography Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Jonah Hill, Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon Director: Gus Van Sant Rated: R After nearly dying in a car accident, the last thing Oregon slacker John Callahan intends to do is give up alcohol. Encouraged by his girlfriend and a charismatic sponsor, Callahan reluctantly enters a treatment program and discovers that he has a knack for drawing. The budding artist soon nds himself with a new lease on life when his edgy and irreverent newspaper cartoons gain a national and devoted following.‘Eighth Grade’Genre: Comedy Cast: Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson, Elsie Fisher and Missy Yager Director: Bo Burnham Rated: R Kayla, a 13-year-old, endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school – the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year – before she begins high school.‘Puzzle’Genre: Drama Cast: Kelly Macdonald, Austin Abrams, Mandela Bellamy and Myrna Cabello Director: Marc Turtletaub Rated: R “Puzzle” is a closely observed portrait of Agnes, who has reached her early 40s without ever venturing far from home, family or the tight-knit immigrant community in which she was raised by her widowed father. That begins to change in a quietly dramatic fashion when Agnes receives a jigsaw puzzle as a birthday gift and experiences the heady thrill of not only doing something she enjoys, but being very, very good at it. After years of concerning herself exclusively with the needs and wants of her husband Louie and sons Ziggy and Gabe, Agnes has found something that she wants to do. Stepping out of her domestic bubble to pursue her new hobby, Agnes meets Robert, a wealthy, reclusive inventor who immediately recognizes her talent and recruits her as his partner for an upcoming world jigsaw tournament. Each day she spends out in the world, puzzling and conversing with Robert, takes Agnes further along on the road to a new understanding of herself and her strengths. With that understanding come new insights and an assertiveness that finds her speaking out on her own behalf and pushing back against the assumptions and routines that have until now de ned her role in her family. Ultimately, Agnes will decide for herself what comes next.‘7 Splinters in Time’Genre: Thriller and science ction Cast: Edoardo Ballerini, Al Sapienza, Lynn Cohen, Laurence Fox, Greg Bennick and Emmanuelle Chriqui Director: Gabriel Judet-Weinshel Not rated A detective investigates a murder, only to nd that the victim is … himself. Soon, he discovers multiple versions of himself, not all of them friendly.‘Shock and Awe’Genre: Drama Cast: Woody Harrelson, James Marsden, Rob Reiner, Milla Jovovich, Jessica Biel, Tommy Lee Jones and Richard Schiff Director: Rob Reiner Rated: R In 2003, the White House administration made a case for the invasion of Iraq. The facts didn’t add up, and only one team of journalists got the story right. “Shock and Awe” is the true story of these journalists, and what it is like to hunt for the truth when the stakes are life, death, and American democracy.

8B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, July 12, 2018 By LEE CLARK ZUMPE Tampa Bay NewspapersLARGO – It’s been 10 weeks since Eight O’Clock Theatre announced it would be auditioning for its summer production of “Spring Awakening.” During that time, Jason Tucker, the show’s director and choreographer; and Justin Havard, music director, have planned, practiced and prepared with the cast and crew, working tirelessly to bring this rock musical to the stage. “Spring Awakening” will run July 13-22 at Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Performances will be Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $28.50 for adults, $13.50 for students age 22 and younger. Call 727-587-6793 or visit According to Sarah Dawson Roehm, public relations director at the theater, the audition turnout surprised everyone. “We believe that this show is a huge step for our local community, as evidenced by the 87 people that showed up to auditions,” she said. “This show is obviously something that the young people in our area are quite passionate about.” The winner of eight Tony Awards – including Best Musical – as well as a Grammy Award, “Spring Awakening” explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. The show features music by Duncan Sheik and a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. It is based on the 1891 German play “Spring Awakening” by Frank Wedekind. The landmark musical is a fusion of morality, sexuality and rock and roll. Set against the backdrop of late-19th century Germany when adults held all the cards, the play’s characters navigate teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety in a powerful celebration of youth and rebellion. This show contains strong adult language, sexual content and situations, and references to suicide and death. Because of the content, Roehm believes it is important that Eight O’Clock Theatre expand its reach. “A lot of our regular audience may be wary of it because of the topics and content, so we really want to open up to a whole new demographic,” she said. The audition notice indicated that Eight O’Clock Theatre was thinking outside the box with this summer production. Tucker and Havard advertised that they were “looking for a diverse group of smart, energetic, and adventurous young people to ll these roles.” Havard has a special appreciation for “Spring Awakening.” “I saw it on Broadway with the original cast in 2007, and I remember it affecting me deeply,” the music director said. “I didn’t know the show going in, and I was stunned by how vividly it brought back memories of my own adolescence: the confusion, the frustration, the shame, and the excitement.” Havard explained how audiences relate to the characters in the show. “I think it can be such a lonely time for anyone, because you just don’t realize how universal all these feelings are,” he said. “The fear that you’re a freak, or that you’re not supposed to feel these things, and just not knowing what the heck is going on with your body. When you add repression into the mix, it just makes it so much worse, which is shown really clearly in the play.” According to Havard, “Spring Awakening” is an important show for any theater at any time because of its message. “We as adults often dismiss teenagers as overly emotional and ‘angsty,’ but we forget how dif cult that transition can be for them,” he explained. “They are neither children nor adults, and they are desperately looking for someone to show them the way, and to be taken seriously. The play shows how harmful it can be when these pleas go unanswered, or worse, when they are dismissed as something shameful.” For Havard, one of the highlights of bringing this show to the stage has been working with Duncan Sheik’s folk-rock score. “The rst time the girls sang the group version of ‘Mama Who Bore Me,’ we all just burst into cheers afterwards, Havard said. “It’s such a cool song with lots of interesting harmony, but the rst time made us realize what a special cast this is.” Another highlight of this production: seeing it actualized. “Watching Jason Tucker create the staging for the show has been inspiring,” he said. “I’ve seen many different productions of this musical, so I didn’t necessarily expect to see a lot of new things during the process, and I couldn’t have been more wrong. Jason is such a creative storyteller, and his staging is so fresh and thought-provoking.” Christina Capehart serves as assistant director of “Spring Awakening.” Like Havard, Capehart saw the original cast of “Spring Awakening” in New York. “I immediately fell deeply in love with the story that was being told in such a visually interesting and new style,” she said. “It was such an eye-opening experience about what theater could be.” Capehart said she had never seen anything like it. “Since then, I have always wanted to be a part of a production that creates an energizing impact on the audience the way seeing ‘Spring Awakening’ did for me.” Capehart has appeared in many productions at Eight O’Clock Theatre, but this show marks her rst experience on the creative side of a production. “Getting the opportunity to work alongside Jason Tucker has been tremendously educational,” she said. “I could not have asked for a more tenured or skillful mentor. Being able to watch the relationships in the cast has been one of the most enjoyable experiences.” According to Capehart, Eight O’Clock has one of the very best facilities around as well as an extremely capable staff. As such, EOT is especially qualified to present productions such as “Spring Awakening” in a way that preserves the original integrity of the show. “’Spring Awakening’ will expose our audiences to the possibility of theater and allow them to have an authentic experience in a way they might not have before,” Capehart explained. “It is absolutely a daring move that I believe our audiences will nd rewarding.” The production’s subject matter has brought cast and crew closer together. “The production deals with some very heavy topics and our cast has become so supportive and intrinsic understanding of one another,” Capehart said. “It creates magic on stage – it’s beautiful. Truly this production feels like kismet on all sides. It is really something spectacular.” The director of the production applauds Eight O’Clock Theatre for taking on a show like “Spring Awakening.” “EOT has always done a good job of mixing the modern with the classic and the profound with the silly, so it’s not surprising,” Tucker explained. “But this is a particular moment in our culture when ‘Spring Awakening’s” story of repression, forced ignorance, and the struggle to connect make it incredibly relevant.” Tucker said he believes that audiences who see the show at Central Park Performing Arts Center in Largo will love these characters and be thrilled with the actors portraying them. For Tucker, the most exciting thing about creating this production was working with what he describes as a “truly special group of 15 young, local performers.” Cast members range in age from 16 to 20, with one 29-year-old thrown in for good measure. “To a person, they are smart, thoughtful, engaged, and powerful,” Tucker said. “I looked forward to every rehearsal because I knew I was about to create with these talented actors. I hope someday I’m lucky enough to get a cast like this again – but I doubt it …” “Spring Awakening” opens Friday, July 13, 8 p.m., at Central Park Performing Arts Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. The show runs through July 22, giving audiences a limited number of opportunities to experience Eight O’Clock Theatre’s production.
