By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersST. PETERSBURG Pinellas County Sheriff sent a message to unlicensed contractors during an Aug. 6 press conference in St. Petersburg. "Go get licensed, stop doing it illegally, or you're going to go to jail," Gualtieri said. At the press conference held at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, 4145 34th St. N. in St. Petersburg Gualtieri announced the results of "Operation Flush Out," which took place Saturday, Aug. 4, through Monday, Aug. 6. Investigators arrested 29 suspects with over 60 criminal charges. These charges include unlicensed specialty contracting violations, workers compensation fraud, and various other criminal charges unrelated to unlicensed contracting. Deputies assigned to the Economic Crimes Unit along with the Florida Department of Financial Services, and the State Attorney Sixth Judicial Court worked collaboratively to charge and arrest unlicensed contractors during the sting operation at a business at 2705 54th Ave. N., Suite 6 in St. Petersburg. Gualtieri said the undercover detectives responded to ads placed on websites, including Craig's List, social media sites and the Nextdoor app. He said people who showed up offered to do a variety of work including electrical, painting, dry wall, tile and framing. None of them was a licensed contractor and they all wanted to do the work without pulling a permit, he said. "Nobody, not one single person who showed up at this business we set up See FLUSH, page 7ASeminole Chamber to host annual health expo Aug. 24 Healthy, Wealthy & WisePhotos SUBMITTEDLast year’s Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Expo organized by the Seminole Chamber of Commerce featured a variety of participating vendors including Seminole Fire Rescue (above), Arden Courts (below left) and Relieg at Hand, LLC (below right.) This year’s event will take place Aug. 24 at Seminole Garden Apartments’ Peacock Center. By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE Seminole High School started the 2018-2019 school year with a new principal Jane Lucas. Lucas is a familiar face to area students. She spent the majority of her 29-year career at Seminole, recently serving as assistant principal over the last several years, and before that was chair of the music department and a music teacher. She steps up to replace Dr. Thomas Brittan, who served as the school's principal for the past four years. At the end of the last school year, Brittan offered the role of principal at Azalea Middle School in St. Petersburg. "I can't wait to see what he and his team will get done there," Lucas said. Brittain wrote in an email to the Beacon, "I had such a wonderful experience at Seminole High School and I feel so good about it because the school is left in such wonderful hands with Jane Lucas at the principal position. Janewill do an outstanding job." Lucas said this summer's leadership transition at SHS has been an easy one because she was an integral part of Brittain's administration. Brittain has actually "tapped (her) for leadership" when he came to Seminole. So, Lucas knew the day for her to lead SHS would eventually come. "It just happened faster than I thought," she said. She's played a key role in improving the school's graduation rates over the past several years from just 86 percent to nearly 98 percent graduating and improving student engagement. "It all came about with relationship building, the personalization of kids' academic plans and behavior plans, and really getting to know the kids, getting them connected with mentors and really getting them involved in at least one thing at the school," she said. The personalized learning opportunities have helped students get By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE The Seminole Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Expo Friday, Aug. 24, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Seminole Garden Apartments' Peacock Center, 8324 112th St. The free event will feature dozens of local businesses offering a variety of goods and services. There will also be giveaways throughout the day, and a 50/50 raffle. Breakfast and lunch, provided by Seminole Gardens, will be available for purchase. CVS will also be offering u shots on site. So, attendees are encouraged to bring their health insurance information with them. The chamber brought the event back last year after a three-year hiatus. At the time, Gretchen Cain, the chamber's then chief of operations, said the organization was "trying to encourage a healthy lifestyle in Seminole." Donna Phelps-Leynse, the chamber's new assistant director, said the event will feature 57 local vendors the same amount as last year's event ranging from healthcare to nancial to lifestyle elds. "Everything you could possibly think of," she said. "All of the resources you need in one place to lead a healthy, wealthy and wise lifestyle." By limiting the number of vendors at the event, participating businesses had more success, Phelps-Leynse said. The event was well-attended last year, she added. With less vendors competing for the attention of those attending, "businesses got more referrals that turned into customers. So, the vendors were very happy." She added, "Everyone who attended thought it was a great event, and the vendors were very happy. They thought it was very good." For more information, call the chamber at 727-3923245.

2A Community Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018Madeira Beach water taxi service to end this fall By WAYNE AYERS TBN CorrespondentMADEIRA BEACH Residents and visitors to the city will soon be missing a popular attraction and means of transportation. The water taxi service, which began in 2015 and was growing in popularity with plans for expansion, will be ceasing operations this fall. The ferry operator said the service would be discontinued after the city ended a $25,000 contribution it has made yearly to offset the ferry's expenses. The City Commission decided by consensus at their Aug. 6 workshop not to include the ferry payment in their upcoming year's budget. Without the money from the city, the water taxi's owners have said the service would not survive. The ending of the ferry operation came as little surprise, and ends a contentious relationship between the majority of commission members and the boat's operators. City Manager Jonathan Evans said the city staff's recommendation was to continue the water taxi service. "We see value in the relationship and service," Evans told the commission prior to the decision to end the $25,000 payment. But most commission members felt otherwise. Mayor Maggi Black said she had a great ride on the ferryboat. The staff was helpful, she said, but she described the ferry service as "more of a boat ride." "It is hard to support this as a water taxi," she said. "It took an hour and a half to get from one place to another. It is not a water taxi." Cory Hubbard of Hubbard's Marina, representing Tampa Bay Ferry, Inc., the boat's operators, spoke to the commission but acknowledged right away the futility of trying to save the water taxi for a fourth year. "The majority of the commission has already made up their minds. We have been alienated and vili ed as asking for a government handout," Hubbard said. "Water taxis have been understood by other communities as a form of transportation. We needed an active partnership with the type of city that really believed in it." Hubbard said, "Our dream of a public-private partnership has come to be a lot of battles. Our ideas have not been really well-received. Our fate has been sealed." She said Madeira Beach "could be a leader in water transportation. I hate to see you give that up, but I don't think there is anything I can do to change your minds." The ferry's fate was sealed when Commissioner John Douthirt, who had been the swing vote in a 3-2 decision to fund the boat for an additional year last July, joined the consensus to end the funding. "I got a lot of calls on this," Douthirt said. "They said none of the other cities are ( nancially) supporting the ferry service but us. Why are we subsidizing a private business?'" Commissioner Deby Weinstein said she values water taxis as an alternate means of transportation. "The boat should be allowed to operate in the city, and dock at locations. But the entire community is better served if the $25,000 is put in our infrastructure fund, where it will impact the most," Weinstein said. "I don't think any funding of our water taxi is a proper use of taxpayers' money," she said. Commissioner Nancy Hodges, who reluctantly agreed to the commission consensus to take the water taxi money out of the budget told Hubbard, "I appreciate all you've done. Madeira Beach has always been a leader in this (water transportation). I'm really sorry." Black had similar comments. "We appreciate your efforts. Maybe in time something will work out," she said. Hubbard had said if the contract with Tampa Bay Ferry is not renewed, the ferry would discontinue service in Madeira Beach in 30 days. "If you change your mind, you know where to nd us," she said.Recycle rightProper recycling techniques were presented by Shelby Lewis of the Pinellas County Recycle Outreach and Education Program. On the list of recyclable items are aluminum, tin and steel cans, cardboard ( attened), cartons (no straws), glass bottles and jars, but no other types of glass. Newspapers, mixed paper and paperboard (cereal boxes) and plastic bottles and containers are all recyclable. The list of items that are not recyclable includes plastic bags, packaging or lm, paper towels, paper plates, cups, tissues or wax paper. No Styrofoam, foam containers or packaging. "When in doubt, throw it out," Lewis said. She said the county's number one goal is to reduce waste. "We don't want a lot of garbage, but also we don't want a lot of recycling either." "Use less of everything," Lewis said.Civility code to be adoptedReacting to some contentious encounters during the public comment section of the meetings and on divisive issues, the commission agreed to move forward with a resolution adopting a civility code. The goal is to promote civil discourse, said City Manager Evans. Evans said staff had recommended adopting a civility pledge, taken from the words of Abraham Lincoln. It will be placed on the podium at City Hall to send the message, "We may disagree. However, we will do it in a civil and respectful manner," Evans said. A number of other communities are adopting similar civility codes, he said. The civility pledge as presented in the agenda reads: "We will always show respect to one another, we will direct all comments to the issue before us, and we will avoid personal attacks. Politeness costs so little." "I think it's warranted and necessary," Weinstein said. "I've been reprimanded and scolded many times and called some really bad things." "We need a resolution," said Commissioner Nancy Oakley. Black also favored moving forward with the civility resolution, but wanted a minor change in wording, which the commission and Evans agreed to do. The commission will vote on the civility code resolution at a future commission meeting.

4A Seminole Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018excited about school, she said. In recent years, SHS has stood apart from other schools in the county by launching seven academies focusing on speci c fields of study, including education; e-commerce, Internet marketing and law; performing and visual arts; engineering; graphic arts; and sports careers. The Center for Education and Leadership, the rst of the seven academies launched by the school, has been so successful that it was selected this year by Pinellas County School to pilot a new partnership with the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, Lucas said. This new program, Stay Sharp, will allow students choosing education as a major to attend the USF St. Petersburg campus on scholarships provided by the university and the school district. At the end of graduation, they will also be offered advance teaching contracts with the school district at salary level 6. "We're growing them back into the Pinellas County pipeline. We're growing our own," Lucas said. "It's really an exciting program. What a great leap ahead for young adults to start not in debt and to have this advance contract." Approximately 450 SHS students nearly a quarter of the total enrolled students at the school - are part of the CEL program. iHawk Academy has also been integral to student success, as well, she added. "This personalized learning (program) was really instrumental the last three years," she said. "It's so important the idea of how personalization, meaning the voice and choice of the student, comes together with project-based learning, hands-on and sometimes cross-content related, and making a difference in our school, our community and globally." Also new this year, SHS will play a "musical transition, a fade up and fade out," over the loudspeaker during class changes. "Before this, we were known as the un-bell' school. We had no bells, no problems," Lucas said. "But we're initiating it this year for our freshmen. We heard our community and its needs and decided to initiate this." She is excited for the new school year and said that big things are in store for Seminole high schoolers. Based "on the excitement and camaraderie" of the school's faculty and staff, she isn't the only one who feels this way, she added. "I can tell this year is going to be amazing," she said. "We're going to have unprecedented learning gains for our students. We're being very targeted about that while continuing to encourage engagement."

5A Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018 081618


6A Viewpoints Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018 Bug out, dude. The decision by Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri not to immediately arrest the shooter in the latest "stand your ground" case in our state has nothing to do with his reluctance to prosecute a crime. If you want to blame someone for this fiasco, blame the Republican-dominated Florida Legislature. And while you're at it, kick Florida Democrats upside their frequently self-righteous backsides for their role in the state's lopsided gun laws. They got their tails out anked as Republicans took complete control of state government over the last 20 years. While the GOP pressed for education reform, pro-growth, anti-regulation, anti-public education and tax-schmax laws, nowhere have the state felt the impact of Republican rule more than in gun laws. Marion Hammer of the National Ri e Association became better-known as a policy manipulator than anyone the Democrats had to offer as a counterbalance. And so we have "stand your ground" rewritten as essentially a license to kill because now a shooter can claim they felt threatened enough in a confrontation to use lethal force. That nuance of law led Gualtieri to decline to arrest Michael Drejka for fatally shooting Markeis McGlockton in an argument over a parking violation that spiraled out of control. At a rally in Clearwater, Sharpton said Gualtieri should "give up his badge" for not immediately arresting Drejka, who is white, for shooting McGlockton, who is black, to death. Nonsense. The better argument is whether, regardless of color, Drejka felt empowered on some level by the state's idiotic interpretation of SYG to use lethal force in what should have been a relatively minor scuf e, if that. A lot of people, including me, warned this type of confrontation was coming once state Republican lawmakers rammed this SYG modi cation through. I asked Gualtieri on Tuesday night if he would have thought differently about arresting Drejka under the old standard of SYG. "This is an extremely complicated case," he told me. "The state statute as I understand it says you can't arrest without probable cause." I believe his interpretation is correct. It's what GOP lawmakers had in mind when they pushed through the NRA-backed enhancements to SYG. And that, folks, is what Gualtieri is required to enforce. If outsiders like Al Sharpton really want to make a difference here more than a headline, stop blaming law enforcement of cers on the front line for enforcing what legislators forced upon them. They should stop pretending this is solely a black-white issue. It's a red issue, as in the blood that is being spilled when lawmakers decide that it's legal to shoot rst and justify later. That's what the protest should be about. Joe Henderson has had a 45-year career in newspapers, including the last nearly 42 years at The Tampa Tribune. LETTERS About the CartoonistBorn and raised by underpaid public school teachers in Sanford, Fla., Andy Marlette graduated from the University of Florida and became staff editorial cartoonist at the Pensacola News Journal in 2007. Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C. Doug's tragic death in July of 2007 made evermore poignant the elder Marlette's erce and faithful devotion to the art form of editorial cartooning as a cornerstone of American free speech. With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle. Andy's editorial cartoons have become both hated and adored by daily readers. His work has been awarded by the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors for best editorial cartoons on state issues and former Governor Charlie Crist referred to himself regularly as Marlette's biggest fan, despite the fact that he was also regularly a target in cartoons. It's important that students learn as much as they can about science, nature, mathematics, first aid and word definitions. Here are some actual answers given by students being quizzed on those subjects. Charles Darwin was a naturalist who wrote the organ of the species.

A person should take a bath once in the summer and not quite so often in the winter. The bookworm larva enters the human body through the soul. It is a well-known fact that a deceased body harms the mind. For fainting: rub the person's chest, or if a lady, rub her arm above the hand instead. For dog bite: put the dog away for several days. If he has not recovered, then kill it. For nosebleed: put the nose much lower than the body. For drowning: climb on top of the person and move up and down to make artificial perspiration. For head colds: use an agonizer to spray the nose until it drops in your throat. For snakebites: bleed the wound and rape the victim in a blanket for shock. Before giving a blood transfusion, nd out if the blood is af rmative or negative. Bar magnets have north and south poles; horseshoe magnets have east and west poles.

Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ highlights Trump’s bad choicesWASHINGTON In June, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis slammed the position of special counsel as a post too easily "deployed as a political weapon" to troll for dirt on targeted adversaries. At the same time, he ruled that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's prosecution of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was legitimate and should continue. Ellis, who is presiding over Manafort's trial in Alexandria, Virginia, was acutely aware that the multiple charges of tax and bank fraud had nothing to do with the 2016 presidential election or Russian meddling in the campaign. But the judge found grounds for Mueller's team to prosecute Manafort as its probe uncovered a fraudulent money trail funded by backers of former Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych. The terms of the Mueller investigation included looking into the "strongly pro-Russian" Ukraine leader. Just don't call Yanukovych's big donors "oligarchs," Ellis later warned prosecutors, as he saw such language as needlessly prejudicial. Federal prosecutors complained about Ellis scolding one of their ranks on Wednesday, and on Thursday, he apologized. There's something to be said for the irascible judge's focus. Ellis also appears to have curbed Manafort's lawyer, Kevin Downing, after Downing grilled star witness Rick Gates about four alleged extramarital affairs. It's irrelevant. Gates is Manafort's former right-hand man who was indicted along with Manafort in October 2017, but later agreed to plead guilty and testify against his old boss as part of a plea deal that should reduce, and possibly eliminate, a prison sentence that threatened to span decades. The jury has seen Gates as an accomplished liar and professional cheat. From Monday afternoon through Wednesday morning, prosecutor Greg Andres walked Gates through a series of fraudulent maneuvers that he orchestrated to avoid paying taxes. Gates also admitted to skimming money from offshore Manafort accounts although, as Downing pointed out, he claimed to have embezzled hundreds of thousands from Manafort after the government had figured Gates skimmed close to $3 million. But Gates looking shifty doesn't make Manafort appear pure not when prosecutors produced documents that gave the impression Manafort hired Gates because they share the same low bar on ethics. In 2015, Manafort emailed Gates about a higher-than-expected tax tab. "We need to discuss actions," Manafort wrote. After some fancy shuf ing, no surprise, his tax bill shrank. Manafort also consulted Gates about the method to doctor a PDF as he applied for a loan. In the long run, the most damaging testimony from Gates had to do with Manafort Inc.'s depleted nances after Yanukovych fell from power. According to the feds, as Manafort advised Yanukovych and other Ukraine entities from 2006 to 2015, $75 million flowed into the big-spending political consultant' offshore accounts and Gates helped launder more than $30 million of that. But when Yanukovych ed, the money went away. In 2015, Gates testi ed, "We had zero clients." Rather than sell one of his many homes, Manafort went on the hunt for big loans by whatever means it took to get them. Then, like a deus ex machina in an ancient theater production, Donald Trump appeared on the political stage. Manafort agreed to advise Trump without pay, as he clearly saw an opportunity to cash in on his work for Trump over time. Through a Kiev staffer, the Atlantic reported, Manafort sent clippings of stories about his political work for Trump to a Russian oligarch this isn't a courtroom, I can use the word "oligarch" to whom Manafort owed millions. Manafort asked, "How do we use to get whole?"Conservative journalists have chronicled ties between Moscow and the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016. Most notably the DNC and Clinton campaign bankrolled the unveri ed "dossier" compiled by a former British intelligence of cer who repeated dirt fed by Russian sources. The opposition research rm that hired the Brit also had worked against the 2012 Magnitsky Act that prescribed sanctions against corrupt Russian players. But if everyone's hands are dirty, does that mean no one's hands are dirty? Trump frequently notes that Manafort served as his campaign chief for only a brief time, a mere three months. But given Manafort's reputation for advising strongmen who oppose U.S. interests, that's three months too long. As a candidate, Trump boasted that he'd hire "the best" people to run his government. But rst he hired the worst guy a politico who made his fortune advising corrupt strongmen to steer his campaign. So even if there was no collusion, there was colossally bad judgment. And there is a price to pay for bad choices. Contact Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ or 202-662-7391. We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

County 7A Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018to do work, not one of them had a license," Gualtieri said. "Every single one was doing this under the table." He said the 29 arrested were charged with a variety of criminal offenses, including possession of cocaine and driving with a suspended license. Several had outstanding warrants for offenses such as DUI, failure to appear, unlicensed contracting and not having workers compensation insurance. Gualtieri singled out one of the persons arrested, Jason White, 47, of Largo who he said was well known to investigators. Gualtieri classi ed White as a "habitual offender." He said White "showed up during this sting" when he had four active arrest warrants. Three were out of Pinellas for failure to have workers compensation insurance, unlicensed contracting and grand theft. The fourth was out of Polk County for unlicensed contracting. White is known to do "extremely shoddy work," Gualtieri said. "We've had a number of complaints about him," he said. The Sheriff's Of ce began doing investigations for the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board, which was an independent agency, about a year ago. As of July 1, that Board is now part of Pinellas County government. The Sheriff's Of ce is continuing to investigate criminal activities. Gualtieri said unlicensed contractors know what they're doing is wrong. He said one of the men that talked to undercover detectives during the sting offered to do the work on the weekends and cover the windows to avoid any "red ags." "This is not something people don't know about," he said. "They know what the obligation is. They know what the law is. They just choose not to follow it because they don't want to get licensed. They don't want to get the permits." Gualtieri said unlicensed contractors prey on vulnerable people by taking their money without doing the work, failing to complete the job or doing shoddy work. "This is very, very frustrating to those who are licensed," Gualtieri said. "They're trying to do the right thing and run their business legitimately. They're abiding by the law, getting the licenses, getting the permits and they're being undercut by unlicensed people. It's not fair to legitimate business owners." Gualtieri described the problem as "pervasive." "It's a serious problem when electrical work is not done right, plumbing is not done right, dry wall is not done right," he said. "Then they (the public) call us and complain," he said. Gualtieri said his office would continue to do sting operations until they start to see the numbers of arrests go down. "Then we'll know we're having an impact," he said. "Right now, we could do these every day and probably get the same results." Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor.

The biggest need is for beds for families who are waiting for a permanent housing solution. Currently, the county has 1,062 beds for homeless individuals and only 282 for families. There are 48 families in the system and 15 are still on the streets. The rest are in shelters. Susan Myers, CEO of Pinellas County Homeless Leadership Board, said the School District estimates as many as 2,400 students, ages 15-16, are couch surfing, meaning they have no home of their own. Money for bridge housing would provide up to 90 days of emergency housing for 100 families and address the shortage of shelter beds. Funding for the Urban Youth Empowerment Program, requested by Commission Chair Ken Welch, would provide job training, soft skills development, mental health, case management and wrap around services for at-risk youth under the age of 24 countywide. "Kids have to see those opportunities or they look for other opportunities," Welch said, adding that the program was looking for partners to help ensure success. Commissioner Charlie Justice asked for the additional funding for Meals on Wheels to help reduce the number of people on the program's waiting list. The budget already included an extra $200,000 to supplement the $96,000 the county had been allocating to the program. The extra money would provide meals to 200 more seniors. Current funding supports meals for 763. There are 839 on the waiting list. Money for a north county business incubator was requested by Commissioner Dave Eggers. The money would go to Florida Business Incubator, which has an agreement with the city of Dunedin to help attract higher paying jobs. Eggers also requested additional money for downtown Palm Harbor to provide for a staff liaison and part-time maintenance position. The recommendation from staff and consensus of commissioners was to delay funding until work is complete to update the downtown master plan utilizing staff from the Planning Department. Commissioners also said no to Eggers request for money to pay for a small business navigator for north county because plans are in the works to use Economic Development staff to provide that service.

County 9A Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018Early voting begins Aug. 18 in Pinellas CountySupervisor of Elections nds no signs of security issues with local databases By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersEarly voting for the Aug. 28 elections begins Saturday, Aug. 18, and continues through Sunday, Aug. 26 at any of three Supervisor of Elections of ces. Hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Early voting locations: County Courthouse 315 Court St., Room 117, Clearwater. Election Service Center 13001 Starkey Road., Starkey Lakes Corporate Center. County Building 501 First Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Early voters are required to present both picture and signature identi cation. Voters who do not bring both types of ID will be required to vote a provisional ballot. As of the voter registration deadline, July 30, the county had 654,451 active registered voters. The latest report of ballots coming in on Aug. 11, showed 7.7 percent had already participated via mail ballots. Just over 19 percent of almost 262,000 mail ballots had been returned to a Supervisor of Elections of ce. Registered voters can request a mail ballot through 5 p.m. Aug. 22 by email at or call 727-464-VOTE (8683). Mail ballots must be returned to an Elections of ce by 7 p.m. Election Day, Tuesday, Aug. 28. The Aug. 28 election includes three primaries Republican, Democrat and Universal, as well as nonpartisan races for circuit judge and school board members. Florida is a closed primary state, meaning only voters who have registered as Republican or Democrat can vote in their respective elections. All registered voters, regardless of political af liation can cast a ballot in the Universal Primary and nonpartisan elections. Republican ballot Republicans will vote for their choice of candidates to run in the General Election on Nov. 6. Races to be decided include United States Senator, Representative in Congress District 13, Governor, Attorney General, Commissioner of Agriculture, State Senator District 16, State Representative District 64, State Representative District 66, State Representative District 69 and Board of County Commissioners, District 6 Single Member. Democratic ballot Democrats will pick their favored candidates for Representative in Congress District 12, Governor, Attorney General, Commissioner of Agriculture and State Representative District 67. Universal Primary Voters registered as Republicans, Democrats and independents will vote for State Representative District 70. All three running for the position are Democrats. Since there is no Republican candidate, the winner of the Universal Primary will be the winner of the election and the race will not appear on the Nov. 6 ballot. Nonpartisan ballot All voters registered by the July 30 deadline will vote for Circuit Judge, 6th Circuit, Group 4; Circuit Judge, 6th Circuit, Group 9; Circuit Judge, 6 Circuit, Group 36; Circuit Judge, 6 Circuit, Group 40; Circuit Judge, 6 Circuit, Group 45; School Board Member, District 2 At Large; and School Board Member, District 3 At Large. Voters, regardless of political af liation, living in District 6, will vote in the race for a School Board member to represent them. Voters living in District 7 also will vote for a School Board member representative. If no candidate wins the majority of the vote in a nonpartisan contest, which is 50 percent plus one vote, the two candidates receiving the most votes will compete in a runoff during the Nov. 6 election. Sample ballots are available on the Supervisor of Elections website, along with additional information, including polling places and more.Election securityThe security of the nation's elections has been a subject of concern with recent media reports of hacking of Florida's systems. Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Supervisor Deborah Clark issued a statement Aug. 9 in response to the reports of Russians penetrating voter registration databases. "There is no indication any of Pinellas County's election systems have been penetrated," Clark said. According to her statement, county Elections staff has been in touch with the Department of Homeland Security, FBI, Florida Division of Elections, the county system administrators and a multi-state informationsharing group that monitors cyber threats, as well as the vendor for the voter registration database, VR Systems. All of these of cials stated that no known penetration occurred, Clark said. "We are actively engaged in cyber threat prevention, protection and have protocols for response and recovery," Clark said. "Elections have been designated as critical infrastructure by the federal government, and we take seriously the responsibility of protecting the integrity of electoral process. "If, for any reason, our voter registration system was not available on Election Day to determine voters' eligibility, back-up paper precinct registers (lists of voter information by precinct) are available to our poll workers. Also, in order to ensure voters are able to cast a ballot, provisional ballots are a part of our continuity of operations plan and are a reliable back-up option." Pinellas County has been approved to receive an Election Security Grant for $666,195 from the Florida Department of State. Grants totaling more than $14.5 million have been awarded to all 67 counties. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at Deborah Clark from Mohave County, Arizona, Lee's Summit, Missouri, and Kansas City, Missouri completed a thorough evaluation of operations during a site visit in June 2018.

10A Police Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018Shooter arrested in Stand Your Ground case By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersThe Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney's Office has decided to charge the shooter in a controversial Stand Your Ground case that occurred July 19 in a convenience store parking lot in Clearwater. Pinellas County Sheriff's Of ce announced Aug. 13 that Michael Drejka, 47, of Clearwater was in custody. He will be charged with manslaughter. He was in process of being booked into the county jail. His bond will be $100,000. "I support the State Attorney's decision and will have no further comment as this case continues to work itself through the criminal justice system," Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in a press release Monday morning. Gualtieri has been the center of a controversy because of his decision not to arrest Drejka for shooting Markeis McGlockton, 28, of Clearwater. McGlockton died soon after the shooting at a local hospital. Gualtieri held a press conference July 20 and explained that the Sheriff's Office could not arrest Drejka because the case fell under the parameters of the Stand Your Ground law. Gualtieri said his of ce would investigate the shooting and then turn the case over to the State Attorney's Of ce to make a decision about any charges. On the day of the shooting, Drejka had been arguing with McGlockton's girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, 24, also of Clearwater because she had parked in a handicapped parking place. McGlockton and their 5-year-old son were inside the store. McGlockton found out about the argument and left the store. He pushed Drejka to the ground. Drejka, who had a concealed weapons permit, pulled out a gun and shot McGlockton. Drejka told detectives that he was in fear of bodily harm, which is why he pulled out a gun to defend himself. Since the shooting, local, state and federal of cials have weighed in on the case with many calling for further investigation. Some questioned whether Gualtieri had made the right decision. Gualtieri has maintained that he followed the law. Many agreed that the state legislature needed to reform or change the Stand Your Ground law to prevent what Pinellas County Commission Chair Kenneth Welch called a "pattern of killings in the guise of self-defense" in a post on Facebook. A call to hold a special session to take up the matter was rejected by the Legislature on Aug. 10. Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County Editor. She can be reached at Michael Drejka Police beatTarpon Springs car dealer accused of fraudTARPON SPRINGS The Tarpon Springs Police Department arrested the owner of Exotic Motorcars about 2:34 p.m. Aug. 10 for his involvement in a fraud involving the sale of a 1965 Ford Cobra Mustang that was on consignment at the dealership. Wassim Rouh Nasr, 50, of Tarpon Springs was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on one charge of fraud involving security interest. Bail was set at $5,000. He was released on surety bond at 12:22 a.m. Aug. 11. According to police, the owner of the vehicle entered into a consignment agreement with the dealership, 41041 U.S. 19 N., on May 8 to sell his vehicle for $57,000. Police say the dealership sold the vehicle on May 19 to an overseas buyer for $57,000. However, representatives from the dealership concealed the sale of the vehicle from the owner and continued to actively communicate with the owner throughout May and into June, insinuating the vehicle hadn't yet been sold. Police say the owner discovered his Ford Cobra Mustang was in the process of being sold when he arrived at the dealership at the end of June and found that it was no longer on the property. The owner was convinced by Wassim that he needed to accept the prospective purchaser's offer of $52,000 because no other higher offers had been received for the vehicle. A check was issued on July 6 to the owner by Exotic Motorcars for $52,000, but the check bounced due to insuf cient funds. Police say the dealership provided the owner with another check, which subsequently cleared. Tarpon Springs Police Department began investigating after being notified of the bounced check by the owner. During the course of this investigation, it was discovered the dealership had deceived the owner into believing his vehicle had only sold for $52,000. In addition to the uncovering of this deception, police say the investigation revealed a power of attorney and certificate of title had been forged by the dealership in the owner's name to assist in perpetuating the fraudulent sale of his vehicle. Police say the crimes uncovered during this investigation pertaining to the sale of the Ford Cobra Mustang don't appear to be isolated. The Tarpon Springs Police Department is currently investigating four other complaints from parties who were issued bounced checks by Exotic Motorcars. The bounced checks that have so far been reported to the police department total over $185,000. In addition, Tarpon Springs Police Department is still actively investigating the dealership for the issuance of multiple worthless checks and possible title fraud. The Tarpon Springs Police Department has been assisted in their investigation by the Bureau of Dealers Services. Anyone who would like to report any similar crimes or have information that could assist in the investigation against Exotic Motorcars is asked to call Detective Lemmon at 727-938-2849.– Compiled by SUZETTE PORTER Wassim Rouh Nasr FLORIDA STATEWIDE NETWORK ADS For information on placing a network ad that will run throughout many of Florida’s community newspapers, contact the classi ed department at 727-397-5563, or via email at classi 2222.

Outdoors 11A Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018No red tide bloom on Pinellas County beaches as of Aug. 10 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersCLEARWATER There is no red tide in Pinellas County. That was the message from Kelli Levy, Environmental Management director, during an Aug. 7 County Commission meeting. Levy talked about the latest information on a red tide bloom that runs from Collier to Manatee counties. The bloom has persisted for about nine months, carried largely by ocean currents. The biggest concern is where it might go in the coming days and weeks. "I can't say it is not going to be in Pinellas County," Levy said, adding that the currents were moving offshore and to the south along the beaches. Previous movement along the beaches had been to the north, prompting speculation that red tide would soon be a problem in Pinellas. However, forecasts by the USF-FWC Collaboration for Prediction of Red Tides as of Aug. 10 for Pinellas to northern Monroe counties predicted "net southern transport of surface waters and southeastern transport of subsurface waters for most areas over the next three days." Red tide in Florida is not new. Levy said it had been recorded in Florida since the 1940s. It is a naturally occurring algae, which normally starts offshore and moves with the currents. The red tide organism, Karenia brevis, is not a problem until it begins to "bloom." A bloom occurs when colonies of the algae grow out of control. Levy said the best available science shows red tide blooms may be made worse and last longer due to large amounts of nutrients (pollutants) in runoff. She said it is unknown if the red tide occurring off south Florida beaches has a direct connection to the blue-green algae being discharged from Lake Okeechobee. Blue-green algae occur in freshwater. Red Tide lives in saltwater environments. When asked if the current red tide bloom was more intense than past years, as evidenced by photos of large mammals, such as manatees, washing up on shore, Levy wasn't sure. She referenced the red tide bloom in 2004-2005 that stretched from New Port Richey to Sarasota that devastated marine life. She did say the current bloom was "unprecedented," with a lot more publicity due to social media. She also said concentrations of the algae were extremely high. The red tide organism produces brevetoxins that can affect the central nervous system of fish and other vertebrates, causing them to die, according to information on FWC's website. While red tide is devastating to marine life, it also can mean disaster for beach communities. Not only do they have the expense of cleaning up the dead sh that wash up on the beach, the tourism industry takes a hit. Visitors shy away from areas that smell due to dead sh and red tide also can cause eye, nose and throat irritation. People with respiratory conditions should stay away. However, for now, Pinellas County beaches are clear of red tide and open for business. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission releases a red tide report twice a week Wednesday and Friday. The report from Aug. 10 said red tide was observed at background to low concentrations in two samples collected from Pinellas. Previous samples from the county had been at background levels. A sample collected Aug. 6 alongshore/inshore on Clearwater Pass showed background concentrations and a sample collected the same day from alongshore/inshore Mullet Key, Gulf Pier showed low concentrations. Red tide was not present in 10 other samples collected from Aug. 4-7. Very low to high concentrations were observed in eight samples collected from Manatee County, very low to high concentrations in 29 samples collected from or offshore of Sarasota County, very low to high concentrations in 13 samples collected from or offshore of Charlotte County, background to high concentrations in 40 samples collected from or offshore of Lee County, and background to high concentrations in 12 samples collected from or offshore of Collier County. FWC said it continued to receive reports of sh kills in Southwest Florida. Over the past week, reports were received for multiple locations in Manatee County, Sarasota County, Charlotte County, Lee County, and in and offshore of Collier County. More detailed information is available at shkill. Respiratory irritation also was reported over the past week in Manatee, Sarasota, Lee and Collier counties. Additional information regarding the current status of algal blooms in South Florida is being consolidated and posted on the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's website: To see the latest conditions, visit Suzette Porter is TBN’s Pinellas County editor. She can be reached at Map courtesy of FWCThe Aug. 10 red tide map shows concentrations from samples collected in Pinellas County at low to background levels as noted by the gray circles. The yellow shows locations where samples with low concentrations were collected, orange medium and red are locations with high concentrations.

2B Just for Fun Seminole Beacon, August 16, 2018Syd Entel Galleries to host Special Art by Special HandsSAFETY HARBOR – Special Art by Special Hands, the 10th anniversary art show for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, will take place Thursday, Aug. 23, 5:30 to 8 p.m., at Syd Entel Galleries, 247 Main St., Safety Harbor. The complimentary art exhibit will feature unique artwork by the local Harborside Studios artists. This event is open for all to celebrate the many talents of the artists.

The headliner for this event will be Parmalee. Admission is free. Other events include a BBQ Cook-Off with local amateur competitors. Contestants can either enter Pork Butts, Ribs or both. First, second and third prize trophies will be awarded for both categories. New this year will be an opportunity for youth to show off their BBQ talents – as there will be a youth cook-off competition. Also, entertainment includes a full rodeo with bull riding, live entertainment, beer, reworks, vendors, children’s blowups, bounce houses, electronic bull, and much more. Parmalee is comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals and drums), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and their best friend Josh McSwain (lead guitar), Parmalee are the quintessential American country band. Named after the small North Carolina town where the band started, the chart-topping quartet pays tribute to their humble Carolina upbringings with their name and their sound. Raised on a diet of Southern rock, country, and blues, they formed in 2001 as a bunch of small-town boys chasing wild weekend nights, but their talents eventually took them beyond the little cement block barn they rehearsed in and onto country music’s biggest stages, not to mention the top of Billboard’s Country chart. The band’s blue-collar persistence made their 2013 breakout single “Carolina” into a Platinum-certi ed No. 1 hit, while their debut album landed in the Top 10. Two more singles – “Close Your Eyes” and “Already Callin’ You Mine” – rose to No. 3 and No. 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, all while they kept their noses to the grindstone, touring hundreds of dates a year. Awards nominations from the Academy of Country Music and Teen Choice Awards came rolling in, and headlining tours were launched but the hard-working virtues of their upbringing stand tall. The work continued with the release of their most recent album, “27861,” released in July of 2017. Both singles from the project, “Roots” and “Sunday Morning,” enjoyed chart time on Billboard’s Top 40 Country Airplay chart and have seen more than 30 million combined streams on Spotify. The proceeds from the BBQ Cook-Off will bene t People Helping People, a local charitable organization that helps residents that are elderly, disabled or incapacitated on xed incomes with their yardwork or minor repairs to their property, as well as Boys & Girls Club and Kiwanis Club of Pinellas Park.Art Trunk Show 7 in Safety HarborSAFETY HARBOR – Art Trunk Show 7 will run Aug. 25 through Sept. 22 at Syd Entel Galleries and Susan Benjamin Glass etc. at 247 Main St. in Safety Harbor.

Tickets for the show – titled “An Unpredictable Evening with Todd Rundgren” – start at $39. Call 727-791-7400 or visit This will be Rundgren’s rst concert at the Capitol Theatre since his sold-out show in April 2014. “A Wizard, A True Star” was the title of Rundgren’s 1973 solo album and it also aptly sums up the contributions of this multi-faceted artist to state-of-the-art music. As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist and interactive artist (re-designated TR-i), Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Rundgren began playing guitar as a teenager, going on to found and front The Nazz, the quintessential ‘60s cult group. In 1969, he left the band to pursue a solo career, recording his debut offering, the legendary “Runt.” But it was 1972’s seminal “Something/Anything?,” on which he played all the instruments, sang all the vocal parts and acted as his own producer, that catapulted Rundgren into the superstar limelight, prompting the press to unanimously dub him “Rock’s New Wunderkind.” That album was followed by such landmark albums as “The Hermit of Mink Hollow” and “A Wizard, A True Star” as well as such hit singles as “I Saw the Light,” “Hello It’s Me,” “Can We Still Be Friends” and “Bang The Drum.” In 1974, Rundgren formed Utopia, an entirely new approach to the concept of interactive musicianship. Standout Utopia offerings included “Oops! Wrong Planet,” “Adventures in Utopia” and “Oblivion.” Along the way, Utopia combined technical virtuosity and creative passion to create music that, for millions, de ned the term “progressive rock.” Rundgren’s myriad production projects include albums by Patti Smith, Cheap Trick, Psychedelic Furs, Meatloaf, XTC, Grand Funk Railroad and Hall and Oates. Rounding out his reputation as rock’s Renaissance Man, Rundgren composed all the music and lyrics for Joe Papp’s 1989 Off-Broadway production of Joe Orton’s “Up Against It,” the screenplay commissioned by The Beatles for what was meant to have been their third motion picture. He also has composed the music for a number of television series including “Pee Wee’s Playhouse” and “Crime Story.” In 2012, Rundgren performed his iconic 1973 album “A Wizard, A True Star” in concert in its entirety for the rst time ever and last year did the same with a double bill featuring the albums “Todd” and “Healing.” “White Knight,” his latest studio album, was released in 2017 and features a stellar line-up of guest performers including Donald Fagen, Joe Walsh and Daryl Hall.

The exhibition will feature new mixed media works by Judy Vienneau. The reception will include live music performed by Carole Shelton. There will be refreshments.

Vienneau is a seasoned professional artist with a BFA in graphic design from Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston. Since working in commercial graphic design and advertising, she has spent the last 25 years studying traditional sculptural techniques, and producing wire and mixed media sculpture.

The equally popular “My Immortal” peaked at No. 7 in the U.S. and U.K., and both songs were featured in the soundtrack for the action movie “Daredevil.” The album produced four singles total including “Going Under,” which hit No. 5 on the U.S. Modern Rock chart; and “Everybody’s Fool.” “Fallen” is one of only eight albums in the history of the chart to spend at least a year on the Billboard Top 50. It spent 104 weeks on the Billboard 200 and is No. 32 on the Greatest of All Time, Billboard 200.” Evanescence has scored two Grammy Award wins – including Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance – out of a total of seven career nominations. Following multiple worldwide tours, Evanescence released their rst live album, “Anywhere But Home,” which sold more than one million copies worldwide. Next, the band released their second studio album, “The Open Door,” which went on to sell more than 5 million copies. Their self-titled third album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart as well as achieving the No. 1 slot on the following Billboard charts: Rock Albums, Digital Albums, Alternative Albums and Hard Rock Albums. After touring European festivals and shows in 2016 and early 2017, Evanescence – lead singer-songwriter and pianist Amy Lee, bassist Tim McCord, drummer Will Hunt, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Troy McLawhorn and guitarist Jen Majura – released their fourth album and most ambitious release to date, titled “Synthesis.” Released in fall 2017 on BMG, the band worked in the studio with producers Will Hunt and orchestra arranger and composer David Campbell. “Synthesis” featured two new Evanescence songs in addition to fan favorites re-imagined with a live orchestra and electronica. Evanescence launched the “Synthesis Live” tour in North America last fall. Augmented by Synthesis producer and live electronicist Will Hunt, cellist and composer Dave Eggar and conductor Susie Seiter, the band combines their intense live performances and timeless songwriting with a powerful live orchestra. The group truly delivered a transcendent concert experience. Lindsey Stirling remains fearless enough to always dream big. It’s been more than ve years since the release of her 2012 self-titled debut, and the electronic music impresario, violinist, dancer, and artist quietly and humbly has become one of the 21st century’s most innovative stars by clinging to her groundbreaking vision of cinematic violin-driven electronic music. After bowing at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Album Chart, holding No. 1 on the Classical Album Chart for 21 consecutive weeks, and receiving a Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Album, her sophomore opus “Shatter Me” would not only garner an RIAA Gold certi cation, but it would rank as the No. 2 Dance/Electronic Album and No. 1 Classical Album on Billboard’s 2015 Year-End charts. Attracting over 10 million subscribers and 2 billion-plus views on YouTube, in 2015 Forbes placed Stirling at No. 4 on its yearly YouTube artists list, making her the highest-ranked female. Her headline tours would play to a cumulative audience of over 500,000 people worldwide, and her literary debut “The Only Pirate at the Party” – co-written with her sister Brook S. Passey – became a New York Times Bestseller. Stirling’s third studio album “Brave Enough” debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, went on to score the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Dance/Electronic Album list and earned Stirling a 2017 Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Album. Recently, Stirling released her first ever holiday album titled “Warmer in the Winter.” Featuring classic and original songs, the album went on to become the No. 1 new Christmas album of 2017, ahead of pop music heavyweights such as Gwen Stefani and Sia. She was also the runner-up on Season 25 of ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars” with her partner Mark Ballas. Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. A motivational speaker in her spare time, Stirling uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have con dence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.Evanescence, Lindsey Stirling to perform at Amphitheatre Photo by PAUL BROWNEvanescence performs Aug. 17 at Mid Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre. Photo by SHERVIN LAINEZLindsey Stirling takes the stage Aug. 17 at Mid Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre.Journey, Def Leppard to bring co-headlining tour to Amalie ArenaTAMPA – Journey and Def Leppard will be “faithfully” performing their classic hits, considered some of the greatest “rock of ages,” when their co-headlining tour pulls into the Tampa Bay area for one show Saturday, Aug. 18, 7 p.m., at Amalie Arena, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Tickets start at $45.75. Call 800745-3000 or visit for tickets. For venue information, visit www. This massive co-headlining tour promises to be one of the biggest shows of the year. Hitting stadiums and arenas across North America, the tour kicked off May 21 in Hartford, Connecticut, at the XL Center. The tour features complete sets and all-new production from both bands, and an arsenal of their hits such as “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Lights,” “Photograph,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Rock of Ages” and “Faithfully.” Journey – featuring Neal Schon, founding member and lead guitarist; Ross Valory, co-founding member and bassist; and longtime members Jonathan Cain, keyboardist; Steve Smith, drummer and Arnel Pineda, lead singer – is one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, creating some of the best-known songs in modern music. Journey’s iconic hits include songs such as “Lights,” “Faithfully,” “Any Way You Want It,” “Wheel In The Sky,” “Separate Ways,” “Who’s Crying Now,” and the seminal “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which is the top-selling digital catalog track in history. Since the group’s formation in 1973, the band has earned 19 top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums and has sold nearly 100 million albums globally. Their “Greatest Hits” album is certified 15 times-platinum, bringing Journey into the elite club of Diamond-certi ed award holders. The band continues to tour and record into the 21st century, performing concerts for millions of fans worldwide, and received the prestigious Billboard Legends of Live touring award. Journey received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, and is the subject of the award-winning documentary “Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey.” In 2017, Journey was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “These co-headlining Journey/ Def Leppard dates will be epic classic rock shows,” said Neal Schon in a press release. “So many hits. It will be great to see you all, friends.” “We are all anxious to share our sound with the world again and, along with Def Leppard, we are part of a world-class package to the rock stage that spans decades and represents a multi-platinum legacy,” Jonathan Cain added. With more than 100 million albums sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards in the U.S., Def Leppard – featuring Joe Elliott, vocals; Phil Collen, guitar; Rick “Sav” Savage, bass; Vivian Campbell, guitar; and Rick Allen, drums – continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music. Over the course of their career, the band has produced a series of classic ground-breaking albums that set the bar for generations of music fans and artists alike. The group’s spectacular live shows and arsenal of hits have become synonymous with their name, leading Def Leppard to be heralded as an institution in both the music and touring industry. Def Leppard’s influential career includes numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums, including “Pyromania” and “Hysteria,” two of the best-selling albums of all time. The band’s classic hits include “Rock of Ages,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Foolin.” The band’s most recent self-titled studio album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Top Independent Albums charts. The album also took the No. 5 spot on Billboard’s Top Current Albums and No. 10 spot on the Top 200, as well as claiming 15 top 10 debuts around the world. For the rst time, in January 2018, Def Leppard debuted their full recording catalog worldwide via streaming and download platforms. “This tour is going to be a blast,” said Joe Elliott. “We’ve toured together before and it was massive. This time it’s going to be even bigger and better.” “Twelve years ago we embarked on a U.S. tour with Journey and it was an absolute blast,” said Rick Savage of Def Leppard. “Looking forward to hooking up again. Believe me, this will be even more spectacular.” 080918 07051811125 Park Blvd. (On Johnson Blvd., by Seminole Mall)  Seminole, FL 33772 727 393-6669Mon.-Thurs., 10:30am-9:30pm, Fri., 10:30am-10pm, Sat., 11am-10pm, Closed Sunday 11 years in a row in the Tampa Bay Area 2008-2018 in Readers ChoiceSeminole Chamber Business of the Year 2017 # 1 T h a n k Y o u F o r V o t i n g U s # 1 A g a i n Thank You For Voting Us #1 Again!

PETERSBURG – “This is Not a Sel e: Photographic Self-Portraits from the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection,” a new exhibition exploring a broad range of approaches to the art of self-portraiture, will open Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg. Long before today’s internet-shattering celebrity sel es, photographers used their cameras to create self-portraits that bend reality, push the boundaries of art, and encourage viewers to look at society in new ways. The exhibition, which features 80 photographs created by 66 artists, is from the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Audrey and Sydney Irmas, with their daughter Deborah, began collecting photography in the mid-1970s. They focused on collecting self-portraiture in the early 1980s, growing the most signi cant collection on the subject in the United States. The exhibition includes compelling self-portraits from the past 150 years by a range of artists, including Cindy Sherman, one of the most in uential contemporary artists; Andy Warhol, a leader of pop art; Diane Arbus, renowned photographer of marginalized people; Alfred Stieglitz, credited for introducing modernist art to America and promoting photography as ne-art; and Alphonse-Louis Poitevin, inventor of early photographic processes, whose c. 1853 work “Self-Portrait” is the oldest piece in the exhibition. The works in “This is Not a Selfie” explore themes such as self-re ection, performance and identity, from early 19th century experiments to contemporary digital techniques. For example, in French artist Yves Klein’s 1960 self-portrait “Leap into the Void,” the artist appears to be leaping from a second-story window, an effect created by combining the negatives from two separate photographs. This image was then distributed as fake news on newspaper stands throughout Paris, predating the viral distribution of photo-shopped imagery common now. In another example, American artist Anne Collier’s 2004 work “Mirror Ball” shows her blurred and fragmented re ection in a disco ball, focusing on the eye as visual shorthand for feelings and emotions. The exhibition has also been on view this year at the San Jose Museum of Art and the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery at the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California. The MFA its only Eastern U.S. stop. “We’re thrilled to bring a large portion of this important collection from LACMA to our visitors, exploring the ways these artists have chosen to present themselves,” said Kristen Shepherd, MFA executive director. “From straightforward self-portraiture to elaborately staged works, this exhibition provides a unique exploration of photography as an art form.” Visitors will have the opportunity to create their own self-portraits while the exhibition is on view. Drawing inspiration from the works in “This is Not a Sel e,” they can use a fun house mirror, a disco ball mirror wall and other projections to create their own self-portraits, which will be digitally displayed in the museum. The exhibition will run through Sunday, Nov. 25. The museum is at 255 Beach Drive, St. Petersburg. Hours are Monday through Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Regular admission is $20 for adults; $15 for those 65 and older, Florida educators, college students, and military; and $10 for students 7 and older. Children age 6 and younger and museum members are admitted free For information, call 727-896-2667 or visit‘This is Not a Sel e’Museum of Fine Arts to present exhibition exploring self-portraiture in a sel e-centered digital age Cindy Sherman, Untitled Film Still #5, 1977, gelatin silver print, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection, Cindy Sherman, Courtesy of the artist and Metro Pictures, New York Nadar (Gaspard-Flix Tournachon), Self-Portrait in Indian Costume, c. 1863, albumen silver print, Los Angeles County of Art, The Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection, photo Museum Associates/LACMA 060718 2801 Tyrone Blvd. N, St. Petersburg, FL 33710Across from Tyrone Mall Floor Tile Wall Tile Backsplash Tile Carpet Laminate Wood 727.851.9937 727-360-8159  Showroom/Design Center  3201 Tyrone Blvd. N., St. Petersburg  Plywood Construction  Dovetail Wood Drawers  Soft Close Glides  Five Star Quality  Excellent Reviews  Satis ed Customers  Topnotch Workmanship Full Interior Remodeling  Family Owned  39 Years Experience COUNTERTOPS: CAMBRIA SILESTONE GRANITE In order to better serve all customers we are currently available by appointment only (temporarily) Monday Friday 10am-5pm.
