Volume 40, No. 26 September 6, 2018 Top: Kyle Travers takes the reins of a horse and carriage alongside instructor Melissa Yarbrough on the grounds of Inspire Equine Therapy Program in Clearwater. Right: Valrico’s Isaiah Graham is in place and ready to, with help from Yarbrough.“It was sudden, but it’s what I had been working toward for many years,” said Yarbrough, who has spent her career as a behavioral analyst. The new digs are a far cry from the of ce setting Yarbrough had known. Located on Doncaster Road on Clearwater’s east side, the land includes 10 tree-lined picturesque acres and the meandering Allen’s Creek as a backdrop. There is a sprawling ranch-style house, state-of-the-art stables, an of ce, a barn, a riding arena, a pasture, and a garden. “The setting is certainly part of the equation. It puts people at ease,” Yarbrough said. Inspired by what Yarbrough offered, Gagnon offered up her barn for Yarbrough to lease and start a business. “She wanted to create a community for Kaylee, and for others,” she said. Today, 21 participants enjoy riding horses or driving horse-drawn carriages on Saturday mornings. The SEMINOLE – Beth Travers can barely contain herself when she describes what she saw from her son Kyle. Just like that, his inner Casanova had emerged. “It was only his second date with a girl in all his life but there he was, taking her for a romantic horse-and-carriage ride,” the proud mother said. “It makes me emotional. It was really, really precious.” And he knew just where he was going. After all, it happened on the home turf for Kyle, a 19-year-old Seminole resident who has lived with Asperger By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE – The city is seeking guidance from residents as redevelopment plans for Blossom Lake Park move forward, said City Manager Ann ToneyDeal. “This is exciting because seldom does a community have an opportunity to completely redevelop a park,” she said. The city will host a community charrette, a meeting for residents to provide input on the redevelopment master plan, Sept. 25, 6 p.m. The meeting will be held at the park, which is located at 10407 Blossom Lake Drive “We thought it was important for this rst meeting to be held at the park itself,” Toney-Deal said. “Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.” Following voter approval of a referendum renewing the Penny for Pinellas tax in November 2017, Seminole City Council added the park’s refurbishment to a list of priority capital projects, she said. Though the 10-year Penny renewal period that will fund this project doesn’t begin until 2020, the city needs to start planning now, she added. “We need to start well in advance of receiving those funds,” she said. The park, which is located along the Pinellas Trail, offers a 1/3-mile fitness trail used by those walking or biking on the trail as well as nearby residents, Toney-Deal said. There’s also a “heavily used” basketball court that was redone a little over two years ago, she added. According to the city website, the park also includes a “number of small gazebos with charcoal grills, a Blossom Lake a ‘diamond in the rough’City leaders seeking community input on proposed redevelopment master plan By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE – The Seminole City Council gave the green light to KB Homes’ plan to build a 49-lot detached single-family residential subdivision on 9.76 acres at 9180 82nd Ave. The council gave its nal approval to the project at its Aug. 28 meeting following the second reading of an ordinance regarding a development agreement for the property and a public hearing on the matter. At the same meeting, the council also approved an ordinance to rezone a 3.69-acre portion of the property from residential rural to residential low. This new designation will allow the developers to build up to five units per acre. The remaining 6.07 acres of the property are already zoned residential low. Members of the Turner family have owned the land since 1953. The family will combine their properties to create a By TIFFANY RAZZANO Tampa Bay NewspapersSEMINOLE – It was just three years ago that the Seminole Historical Society nally found a permanent home. The space was a gift from the city. When the new community building was completed at Seminole City Park, 7464 Ridge Road, a portion of the building, 3,597 square feet, was set aside as museum and meeting space for the historical society. It was a blank slate for the museum. “Literally, there was nothing in there,” said president Michele Abramo. “The walls were white.” The organization’s board members had long stored historic artifacts and city records in their homes. Slowly, they began bringing them all to the space. Initially, it was overwhelming, as items piled up and board members determined how to organize them, as well as which Seminole stories they wanted to tell in their new museum. The museum has come a long way since then. The board created thoughtful, attractive and informative exhibits based on various Seminole and Pinellas County City OKs residential subdivision ‘A jewel for Seminole’Planned development to include 49 single-family homes across 10 acres H o r s i n g A r o u n d Horsing AroundNOT JUST Stories by JOHN MORTON  Tampa Bay NewspapersLearning to drive a horse and carriage helps a young man with special needs come of ageA smooth operatorCLEARWATERMelissa Yarbrough had been a therapeutic horseback instructor on the lookout for a home base For 15 years.

2A Community Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018larger parcel for the subdivision and will sell the land to KB Homes. The developer has worked closely with city staff on the project since last summer. The development was initially brought before council at its July 10 meeting. After hearing concerns about privacy, drainage and traffic congestion from numerous neighbors of the property, councilors tabled their vote on the project and asked developers to address these issues. After meeting with neighbors Aug. 8, KB Homes revised the development’s design to mitigate some of these concerns. These changes included a larger buffer along the western boundary of the property and adding additional trees to the landscaping plan to address privacy concerns. They also hired a traf c consultant, Robert Pergolizzi of Gulf Coast Consulting, who conducted a traf c study of 82nd Avenue just west of Starkey Road and east of 91st Street in July. Just over 700 motorists used the two-lane undivided roadway each day, he said, though it has a daily capacity of 10,000 vehicles. Developers brought the project back to council for reconsideration at its Aug. 14 meeting. The council gave initial approval to the development following a rst reading of the ordinance and public hearing. In other action items at the Aug. 28 meeting, council also authorized the city manager to purchase a pavilion for Waterfront Park, which is located on Park Boulevard next to Home Depot, for $78,000. The state awarded the city a $100,000 grant to develop the park under the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program. The grant requires the city to install a pavilion at the park. COUNCIL, from page 1A Pinellas deputies seek vehicle involved in pedestrian fatality crashOLDSMAR – Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a fatal vehicle versus pedestrian crash that occurred about 10:24 p.m. Aug. 24 at the intersection of Tampa Road and St. Petersburg Drive in Oldsmar. According to deputies assigned to the Major Accident Investigation Team, Mark Coomes, 55, of Oldsmar was driving his 2010 Toyota Four Runner, traveling westbound in the curb lane of Tampa Road approaching St. Petersburg Drive, with a green traf c light. Investigators say a pedestrian, Eric Feinstein, 64, of Dunedin, was walking in an unknown direction, crossing the intersection of Tampa Road and St. Petersburg Drive. Coomes’ vehicle struck Feinstein in the intersection, near the right curb lane of Tampa Road and St. Petersburg Drive. Coomes told deputies he did not see Feinstein and was unable to take evasive action to avoid the collision. Deputies do not know if Feinstein was in the crosswalk. Investigators say after Feinstein was struck by Coomes’ Four Runner, he was immediately struck again by another unknown vehicle that continued traveling west on Tampa Road. Deputies are investigating to determine the identity of the second driver. No description of the second vehicle is available at this time. It is also unknown if the impact from Coomes’s Toyota Four Runner caused the fatal injury to Feinstein. Paramedics immediately responded to the scene and pronounced Feinstein deceased. Investigators do not believe speed or impairment were factors in the first crash involving Coomes. Deputies are attempting to locate and identify the driver of the second vehicle that struck Feinstein.Pinellas deputies investigate fatality crash in Palm HarborPALM HARBOR – A 22-year-old man died at a local hospital from injuries suffered in a single-vehicle crash that occurred about 6:55 p.m. Aug. 28 on Curlew Road in Palm Harbor. Deputies assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Major Accident Investigation Team say Austin Marr was driving a 2014 Volkswagen GTI westbound on Curlew Road when the crash occurred. Witnesses, including Deputy Derrick Gregory, who was off-duty, drove past Marr who initially appeared to be slowing and/or stopped along the curb lane of Curlew Road just west of Belcher Road. Gregory told investigators that before he could safely turn around to check on Marr, the Volkswagen abruptly accelerated westbound on Curlew Road at a high rate of speed, turning left in a southerly direction across all lanes of traf c. The vehicle struck a light pole, a utility box, and traf c sign then became airborne, striking a large oak tree before coming to a stop. Paramedics arrived on scene and extricated Marr from his badly damaged vehicle. He was transported via Bayflight to St Joseph’s Hospital where he later died from his injuries. Investigators say it is unknown what caused the erratic driving that led to the crash.

Community 3A Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018 By SUZETTE PORTER Tampa Bay NewspapersST. PETERSBURG – PSTA Board members unanimously approved what staff described as signi cant route changes during an Aug. 22 meeting. Cassandra Borchers, chief development officers, said staff typically analyzes routes three times a year to make needed changes. Each October, February and June staff looks at the routes to ensure service is being provided to riders in an efficient manner, including whether service should be reduced or expanded. Borchers said most changes are not noticeable to the public; however, she said changes staff is proposing for October are more than usual. The Board unanimously approved merging routes 97 and 98 with route 52, the agencies highest ridership route, saving more than $1.2 million in scal year 2017. Routes 97 and 98 were implemented to provide limited express service during the morning and afternoon peak commuter periods, according to a staff summary. Route 98 runs between Park Street Terminal and Carillon office park, as well as the PSTA layby. A layby is an area at the side of a road where vehicles may pull off the road and stop. With the exception of the Carillon loop, Route 98 travels nearly the same routing as Route 52, which runs between Park Street Terminal in Clearwater and Grand Central Station in St. Petersburg. Route 97 operates between downtown St. Petersburg and the Pinellas County Justice Center on 49th Street North. The route includes Grand Central Station, Carillon and the PSTA layby. The primary routing is almost identical to Route 52. Staff recommends combining routes 97 and 98 with 52 as a way to increase service frequency for route 52. To ensure continued service to Carillon, several Route 52 runs will be extended into that of ce complex during peak hours. A public hearing took place Aug. 14. Borchers said it had been a “good experience.” Route 52 currently operates on weekdays at 20-45 minute intervals from 5:25 a.m. and 11:55 p.m. When the change goes into effect, it will run at 30-minute intervals from 5:30 a.m.-11:30 p.m. A new Route 52 LX will be added to offer 15-minute service during peak hours. The proposed schedule for Route 52 is from 5 a.m-11:30 p.m. on weekdays, 5 a.m.-10:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and 7 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sundays. Another change coming in October involves the Looper service in downtown St. Petersburg. The change includes the addition of new electric buses and service to the innovation district. Service hours will be expanded to start at 7 a.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. on the weekends. Other changes approved for October are:  First northbound trip on Route 16 will depart ve minutes earlier to connect with the 100X.  Route 20 will be rerouted onto Third and Fourth streets in downtown St. Petersburg.  Route 23 will again run along MLK between 22nd Avenue South and Seventh Avenue South in St. Petersburg.  Route 66L will truncate at Park Street Terminal.  Suncoast Beach Trolley will change its time point from Beach Walk to new Clearwater Beach Transit Center.

They also host six home games per season that draw more than 400 athletes as well as their families, friends and fans. Joining the Chiefs’ family of sponsors gives businesses the opportunity See SEMINOLE, page 8Aprogram aims to build con dence and leadership skills for those 10 years of age and older who have special needs, such as autism. “The majority have never been on a horse before,” Yarbrough said. “This helps get them out of their comfort zone and out into the environment – something many of them often tend to try and avoid. This is a way to take simple steps in becoming social.” Working with disabled veterans is also a focus, especially with those suffering post-traumatic stress disorder. Some are even prescribed to enter such a program. “They feel a sense of bonding and trust,” Yarbrough said. “This is a very calm and peaceful place.” Yarbrough is a board-certi ed behavioral analyst and serves as the program’s director. Beyond that, the nonpro t operation is all volunteer-driven. “We get volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life,” Yarbrough said. “Many are teens who have interest in the veterinary led, or are looking to receive scholarship hours for the Bright Future Program. We also get many seniors who are looking to stay active and be in the outdoors. Then there are those who just love horses.” Yarbrough has been delighted to see them often get as much out of the experience as the participants. “Many of them build strong relationships with one another,” she said. “They’ll do things away from the program, doing things like shing together.” As a 501(c)3 nonpro t, Yarbrough depends on tax-deductible sponsorships to help keep lessons as cost-feasible as possible. And next month, the program will host its second “Boot Scootin’ Barn Dance” as a fundraiser. “A lesson is $30 for 30 minutes, but that amount of time actually costs us as an organization $150. We make up the difference with grants and donations. “Let’s face it – horses eat a lot and cost a lot to house. They’re expensive,” Yarbrough said. And when serving in this eld, they require a lot of training. “They are picked very carefully for their temperament,” Yarbrough said. “They need to be very quiet and very forgiving.” The seven horses at the property range from age 3 to 30. On the program’s website, you can visit the pro les of Simon, Rascal, Bear, Leo, Sunny, Buc and Beau. Which is most popular? “Well, they all are,” Yarbrough said emphatically, followed by a chuckle. At next month’s fundraiser, guests will get the chance to meet them all. “They all have such great personalities,” Yarbrough said, “and you’d be amazed at how horses feed off of an individual’s emotions. “We use that message in our therapy. If a rider is grumpy, well tell them ‘If you want your horse to be in a good mood, you’ll need to do the same.’ The horses really do mirror our behavior.” The success comes as a relief to Christine Gagnon. Her property was vacant when she bought it and it was built out for such an operation in mind, she said, but then her business partner became ill. “For two-and-a-half years, my hands were up in the air,” Gagnon said. “So, this has worked out great. I can still walk the property and think of ways to give even more to the community – things like art classes, archery, kayaking. This land has endless possibilities.” As for Yarbrough, her challenge now is to promote her equine program, make it sustainable, and educate the public. “We have a good foundation of support, but nding more sponsors is always critical,” she said. “One big problem is that only one insurance company (Staywell) covers this – and it’s for only 10 lessons per year. That has to change. “A lot of people do know about this kind of therapy, but they don’t know how to get started. What I do know is the need is certainly out there. It’s a matter of spreading the word. syndrome – a developmental disorder characterized by struggles with socializing. The ride took place at the Inspire Equine Therapy Program ranch, where Kyle rides horses or steers carriages most Saturdays. For eight years, he’s been working with Melissa Yarbrough, a behavior analyst who two years ago established her operation in Clearwater. “He started at 12, and back then he didn’t like the outdoors,” Yarbrough said of Kyle. “Now, he can’t get enough of it.” Kyle’s growth is a common outcome for Yarbrough, who during her time as an instructor has seen mini miracles. “We’ve had people who could barely walk become so much stronger,” she said. “And I’ve had a person who had never spoken a word before have the words ‘walk on’ – that’s our command for our therapy horses – be the rst words ever out of their mouth.” Kyle’s transformation is equally profound. Travers attributes it to watching her son learn leadership and bonding through Yarbrough’s calm and trusty horses. “His sensory issues always made it dif cult for him. In school, if things got too loud or too active, he’d melt down,” Travers said. “And being outside was even harder on him. If he was asked to play with the others at recess he felt he was being yelled at. From his perspective, everything was always accelerated.” Desperate to evoke change, she tried the equine therapy. “A year later, I watched him on the same playground, out playing touch football instead of being off on his own in a corner playing a video game.” Travers was so encouraged with the horse therapy that she followed Yarbrough all the way to New Port Richey when she temporarily relocated. “That drive was sometimes an hour-and-a-half, and Kyle would be pretty much done by the time we got there. But it was worth it,” she said. “His core was strengthening (thanks to time in a saddle) and his con dence was soaring.” Now, she cherishes having his therapy so close to home. “I’m so impressed with what I see take place there,” said Travers, who even volunteers as Yarbrough’s event coordinator. “I’m the ultimate testimonial.” As for that triumphant carriage ride, Kyle’s smooth sailing has Travers thinking of further expanding her son’s horizons. “It might be time to think about working toward that driver’s license,” she said. “He’s come a long way and he might be ready.” Photo by JOHN MORTONA stroll along Allen’s Creek offers a picturesque setting.

County newsSheriff’s Of ce awarded contract to target pedestrian and bicycle safetyThe Pinellas County Sheriff’s Of ce recently received a $26,800 contract from the Florida Department of Transportation for a High Visibility Enforcement Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Project. The project began Sept. 4 and continues through May 17, 2019. Deputies will be conducting on-the-street high visibility education and enforcement details that stress the importance of pedestrian and bicycle safety. The details are funded through a contract with the University of North Florida in partnership with FDOT’s focus initiative to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety. The purpose of the project is to educate and enforce safe pedestrian, bicyclist and driver behavior in designated hot spot areas in an effort to reduce traf c crashes and fatalities involving pedestrians and bicyclists. The operation will include the distribution of educational materials, as well as the issuance of warnings and/or citations to pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists in accordance with Florida Statutes. Assigned deputies will conduct high visibility patrol details at eight different pre-designated “hot spots,” over the eight-month period. The 8 different “hot spot” locations include:  54th Avenue North (34th Street to Haines Road)  Gulf Boulevard (75th Avenue to 37th Avenue)  Gulf Boulevard (129th Avenue West to 131st Avenue West)  Main Street/State Road 580 (Belcher Road to Patricia Avenue)  Main Street & Pinellas Trail  U.S. 19 North & Alderman Road  Seminole Boulevard (122nd Avenue to 102nd Avenue North)  U.S. 19 North (SR 580 to Curlew Road)Tampa Bay Water making progress on master planCLEARWATER – At an August workshop for the Tampa Bay Water Board of Directors, Tampa Bay Water staff previewed the initial results of four years of detailed analyses that composes the agency’s Long-term Master Water Plan. The plan includes several evaluations that help determine how much new water is needed by the member governments, when it is needed and how the agency can meet that new demand. Updated conservation and facility analyses show that Tampa Bay Water and its members could delay the need for new water supplies until after 2030 through active conservation and facility improvements. Current projections show Tampa Bay Water’s member governments will need approximately 10 million gallons per day of new supply in the 2028 timeframe and an additional 10 million gallons per day in the 2035 timeframe. However, Tampa Bay Water has identi ed ef ciency and conservation initiatives that the members could implement to save at least 6 million gallons per day by 2025 and a total of 11 million gallons per day by 2030. Those conservation measures would cost less than 40 cents per 1,000 gallons to delay the need for new water supplies. In October, the agency will apply for a block grant from the Southwest Florida Water Management District for cofounding of the identi ed conservation measures. Tampa Bay Water will work with its members to determine how to allocate and spend funds to achieve the savings and help delay capacity development. Upgrading existing facilities to yield more water could also delay capacity development by 5-10 years. For example, the Tampa Bay Regional Surface Water Treatment Plant could provide an additional 5 million gallons per day annual average by re-rating the ltration capacity and existing processes. Upgrades and enhancements at the desalination plant could yield similar results. Even with conservation and facility upgrades, the region will need additional water at some point in the future, so Tampa Bay Water has analyzed potential new projects to bolster our regional drinking water supply. Over the next four months, Tampa Bay Water will nalize its Long-term Master Water Plan and present the completed plan in December to its board of directors for approval. The agency anticipates asking the board to approve a short-list of potential new supply projects for further study to meet demand, when needed.Operations manager hired for Heritage VillageLARGO – Pinellas County recently announced it had completed its search for a new operations manager for Heritage Village.

5A Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018 090618


6A Community Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018history. Orange groves, the Pinellas Trail, local schools, pioneer families, Seminole Fire Rescue – it’s all there in the museum for residents to explore. “This is the only venue of this type in Seminole,” Abramo said. “I think this is a jewel for Seminole.” The exhibits are never done, she added. Residents are always bringing new items to the historical society. One woman dropped off a dingy framed aerial photograph of Seminole Boulevard at 70th Avenue in the 1950s after her father passed away. At rst, the historical society wasn’t sure what to do with it, Abramo said. “It smelled like smoke and had hung in someone’s of ce for years.” So, they put it in storage at the museum. Then, on a whim, the board decided to have the frame cleaned, and had the photograph itself spruced up as well. “It was like a completely different photograph,” she said. The framed image now stands near the front door atop an easel made by artist Chad Craig using limbs from trees that fell in City Park when Hurricane Irma hit the area last September. Dr. Roger Block, an expert on Native American culture and history, has brought in numerous items to complete the Native American exhibit in the center of the museum. The historical society was recently contacted by a thrift store in Naples which had obtained artwork depicting a Seminole wedding. The piece was one of four originally created for Whole Foods in Naples in 2008. “(The thrift store was) just reaching out to everyone that had ‘Seminole’ in their name,” Abramo said. “We knew we had to have it. We love it. It’s such a great piece.” With the completion of this exhibit, the Seminole Historical Society Museum has been added to the Florida Native American Heritage Trail and will be included in the guidebook that will be distributed in the fall. “This is signi cant for us,” Abramo said. A new exhibit featuring vintage shing equipment is currently in the works, she added. The majority of the pieces – the oldest dating back to the 1800s – are being loaned by Jerry and Jan Bachus, the recently retired owners of Holy Mackerel shop in Pinellas Park. Abramo said she is “just tickled” by the historic pieces. “It’s amazing,” she said. “(Jerry) just keeps bringing more from home.” Jerry, who attended several events at the museum, said he’s happy to put them on display. “I’m just glad to share it, nally,” he said. “That stuff has been sitting at home with nobody else seeing it. If (they) get some more walls, we’ll get some more (equipment) up there. My wife would love that.” Other newer pieces donated to the museum include an old school desk and banner from Seminole Elementary School, and a vintage Marine uniform and other military collectibles provided by the now-closed Armed Forces History Museum in honor of its late founder, John Piazza. Abramo is also excited that the museum library has “been completely redone and organized” by librarian Elaine Deja. With Deja’s help, the board learned it was more appropriate to change it from a lending library to a research library. “She really revamped the library and did a beautiful job,” Abramo said. “It’s our new charm. There’s lots of interesting stuff for people to come in and look at.”Speaker SeriesFor more than a year, the Seminole Historical Society has hosted a popular monthly Speaker Series at the museum. The event “packs the house,” said board member Jeff Etter, who organizes the series. “We’ve had some really fabulous speakers,” he added. “So much of our community doesn’t even know that we have a museum until they come in for one of our speakers.” He’s excited about this fall’s programming. Tampa Bay Newspapers will kick it off Wednesday, Sept. 26, when Executive Editor Tom Germond and Publisher Dan Autrey visit the museum. They’ll be followed by Marti Giancola, principal of the new Pinellas Technical High School, Wednesday, Oct. 24, and J. Michael Francis, chair of the department of history and politics at University of South Florida’s Florida Studies Program. Abramo said people have traveled from as far away as Daytona and Sarasota for the Speaker Series. The board is also seeking speakers that are of interest to residents of all ages and backgrounds. “Our pioneer people are slowly fading away or can’t get out,” she said. “Sometimes they can’t make it for these things. In order to keep attracting newer people or people period, we need to keep bringing speakers on all types of things.” She recalls getting some push back on booking a speaker from Tampa International Airport. “A lot of people asked us, ‘Why? Why?’ Well, you know what? We had a full crowd,” she said. “They talked about the past history of the airport and where it’s going. That was a huge event for us.” Already, they’re starting to book speakers for 2019 and hinted that Mayor Leslie Waters might present on a topic relating to veterans and suggested that author Jeff Klinkenberg might return for a reading and presentation.Getting involvedThe key to the historical society’s success is drawing new members and volunteers to the museum, Etter said. “We have such a beautiful place here,” he said. “Most historical societies don’t have such a wonderful facility. So, we’re starting to do outreach to get them here.” The museum is open Thursdays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Initially, it only opened Saturdays, but expanded its hours nearly a year ago, Abramo said. This allowed those unavailable on weekends the opportunity to visit the museum, she said. They also found that there were homeschool children and their parents visiting the park on weekdays for various lessons. The board is reaching out to Pinellas County Schools so that classes might visit the museum. The museum has been included on the school district’s approved list of eld trip venues, and the historical society has provided a children’s exhibit booklet to the social studies department. There are also fundraising opportunities for the historical society. One upcoming event is the second annual OctoberFish, an Oct. 19 sh fry at the museum. All food will be provided by Crabby Bill’s, and all proceeds will bene t the museum. Last year, so many people showed up “that we had to keep bringing out more tables and chairs,” Abramo said. “It was such a nice evening and probably the biggest fundraiser we’ve ever had.” Outreach has been the board’s main focus over the past two years, and the museum is in need of volunteers. “We’re not at the point where we’re going to close during hours we’re scheduled, but we could really use some new people to help out,” Abramo said. Etter added, “We need to remind people that we are here. We’re a great resource. So, come by. It’s also a fun thing to be involved with, and we’re doing more and more in the community.” For more information, visit Photo by TIFFANY RAZZANOThe Seminole Historical Society Museum features exhibits that represent a wide range in the city’s history from information about its pioneer families to fossils found at Boca Ciega Millenium Park to Native American culture. One exhibit pays homage to the city’s founder, Jesse Johnson. The historical society took a high-resolution photograph of tiled artwork depicting Johnson in his orange g roves to create the display. The original artwork was located outside the former Publix at the Seminole Mall, which was demolished to make way for the new Seminole City Center.

Viewpoints 11A Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018WASHINGTON – Lanny Davis became a TV news staple during President Bill Clinton’s second term as the White House lawyer who battled a Senate investigation into Clinton fundraising practices, with a focus on suspected Chinese attempts to in uence the 1996 election. Davis left the White House only to rail against independent counsel Kenneth Starr as he homed in on Clinton’s false testimony about his relations with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Twenty years later, as President Donald Trump is under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, Davis is back – but on the side of prosecutors and partisan critics he once derided. Then as now, there’s indignation over a special counsel straying from his original mandate, surreptitiously recorded audiotapes of conversations and an old-school regard for men who lie about sex. The arguments are the same, but now Republicans are taking umbrage and Democrats are on the attack. Hillary Clinton blamed a “vast right-wing conspiracy” for Starr’s pursuit of the Lewinsky story. Trump blames the “deep state” for Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The Clinton White House constantly gnawed at Starr’s motives and reputation. On Twitter, Trump accuses Mueller’s team of engaging in a “witch hunt.” “It’s going to sound very much like the Clinton investigation all over again,” noted Saikrishna Prakash of the University of Virginia’s Miller Center. This time, Davis is playing offense as the spokesman and attorney for Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, who pleaded guilty last Tuesday to felony charges of tax fraud, bank fraud and campaign nance violations. Those charges have nothing to do with Russian interference in the 2016 election. As Davis tells it, Cohen was so troubled by Trump’s news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki that he decided to offer up information on his former client. Through Davis, Cohen provided an audiotape of a conversation with Trump that Cohen secretly recorded about paying off two women who say they were Trump’s lovers. Likewise, Lewinsky friend Linda Tripp recorded private conversations that went public. Davis rejects the notion that Democrats who bashed Starr are the mirror image of Republicans who deride Mueller. “I’ve met Ken Starr and I’ve met Bob Mueller,” Davis told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “And Ken Starr is no Bob Mueller.” Davis compared Mueller to “a silent submarine” that operates underwater and out of public view, while Starr made himself the public face of the Clinton saga and his staff leaked like sieves. As for charges that Mueller has exceeded his mandate, Davis noted that U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis, a special counsel critic, ruled that the prosecution of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was in keeping with Department of Justice instructions. Starr, on the other hand, won approval to pursue the Lewinsky angle from Clinton Attorney General Janet Reno. If Mueller has learned from Starr’s missteps, Trump may have learned from Clinton. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani has claimed that Mueller is trying to lay a “perjury trap” to ensnare a president who frequently offers different versions of the same event. “The arrogance of Bill Clinton that he could just waltz in and perjure himself,” observed California-based Republican strategist Sean Walsh. “Lesson learned there.” Twenty years ago, Democrats were arguing that everyone lies about sex; hence Clinton’s less-than-truthful statements under oath were not worthy of impeachment. However, Republicans saw his actions as obstruction of justice, one of two successful charges in the House articles of impeachment that passed a oor vote. Now Republicans defend Trump’s payments of hush money to a porn actress and a former Playboy playmate as irrelevant, despite Cohen’s guilty plea on two counts of campaign nance violations relating to those transactions. Former Federal Election Commissioner Bradley Smith argued that paying off one’s mistress is not a campaign matter. Top Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have urged other Democrats not to use the word “impeachment” ahead of the November midterm elections, in which they hope to ip more than 24 seats and regain control of the House. “The last time they impeached a president, the president’s poll numbers went up,” Prakash observed. After the GOP House impeached Clinton, his Gallup poll approval rating hit its highest point, 73 percent. Democrats credited the strong economy under Clinton for his high approval. That doesn’t mean the House won’t vote to impeach. Given the Democratic base’s fury at the GOP president, it’s hard to imagine a Democratic House not moving toward impeachment. But conviction is another matter. After the GOP-controlled House voted to impeach Clinton in 1998, the Senate failed to convict and remove the president. Conviction requires a two-thirds vote, and the GOP Senate voted against convicting Clinton 55-45. Contact Debra J. Saunders at or 202-6627391.

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. If someone asked you to name your favorite hymn, could you do it? When is the last time you joined in singing one? I’ve enjoyed hymns, or at least been interested in them, ever since I was a boy. In a Sunday School I once attended, I joined several kids who carried Christian flags around the perimeter of the church congregation as we sang “Fling out the banner Let it float skyward and seaward, high and wide; The sun that lights its shining folds, The cross, on which the Savior died.” Marvelous lyrics and imagery. It made me feel good, as if I were part of something big. The word “hymn” comes from a Greek word meaning “A song of praise.” Thus defined, a hymn need not be religious in nature. It can be devoted to a nation, an event, a holiday such as Christmas or Easter, or a person living or dead. Protestants and Roman Catholics share many of the same hymns. Muslims don’t have hymns or other religious music. Listings of America’s favorite hymns usually include Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art, Jerusalem, Rock of Ages, In the Garden and Blessed Assurance. Catholics might vote for Ave Maria as their favorite hymn. Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus easily meets the standards of a bona de hymn. Less so, to my way of thinking, (despite its of cial title) is The Battle Hymn of the Republic. I’ve always thought of the Battle Hymn as a warlike, vengeful expression of the Union’s dislike, if not outright hatred, for the Confederacy and slavery. You may disagree. A number of Christian hymns have a military air about them. I’m thinking of “Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war” and “Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross.” In Martin Luther’s “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God,” references are made to an ancient foe, armed with cruel hate, who seeks to work us woe in a world lled with devils. As with other religions, Christianity has a paranoid side to it, often with cause.A popular song can sometimes have a hymnlike feel to it. “You Light Up My Life,” written by Leeann Rimes and sung by Debbie Boone, was intended to be a love song. But its lyrics, without undue bending, could easily be seen as a declaration of religious faith in God or Christ. Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” is a statement of encouragement and hope, spoken by whom? A friend? A lover? Or by a spiritual power that will never desert us? Take your pick. I would guess that this song, heard at a moment of despair, may have saved many almost-lost souls from climbing over the bridge railing. A composer of hymns is known as a hymnodist. I thought you might enjoy knowing that. Famous hymnodists include Julia Ward Howe, Franz Schubert, Isaac Watts and William Cowper. Don’t feel bad if their names don’t ring a loud bell for you. Should gospel music, spiritual songs, and certain memorable musical statements from Hollywood lms and Broadway productions be regarded as hymns? If so, then we’re crawling with hymnodists, living and dead. A hymn can sadden as well as inspire. I’m writing this during the week in which we say farewell to Sen. John McCain. I expect that the Navy Hymn will be played during the ceremonies. If so, it will surely re-awaken memories of those tragic days in November 1963 when another distinguished sailor and American servant was laid to rest. “Eternal father, strong to save ...” Do you weep, inwardly or otherwise, when you hear those words? I do.The civil rights anthem “We Shall Overcome” may not be technically regarded as a hymn, but it has become a centerpiece for millions of Americans – black, white, rich, poor, young, old, gay, straight, multi-otherwise – to sing and rally around as we traipse through today’s swamps and along hopelled highways. In this turbulent time, is there not a composer out there who can write a new anthem-hymn, one that might re-capture the ideas and ideals that have sustained America through other dark days we have faced? I’d like to think so.Bob Driver’s email address is tralee71@ alert! Here’s a colorful reporterEver since I began my new job here, I’ve been up to my neck in it. No, not work (sorry boss!), but the Gulf water. I come to you as the new Clearwater reporter from Fort Myers Beach – a place where, thanks to the releases from Lake Okeechobee that travel downriver to the beach, it’s polluted beyond belief. Think of a cup of coffee that goes on forever, and that’s how it looks. And whatever it is that’s oating among it – well, let’s just say those aren’t sugar cubes. So, despite living across the street from the Gulf of Mexico while there, I never dared go into the water above my knees – and that was only to track down an occasional errant Frisbee throw. Otherwise, I avoided it. Then, just before I came here, the mother of all red tides arrived. Fort Myers Beach was ground zero for it, and there was at least a week where the island bordered on uninhabitable. So, you can understand why I’ve spent each and every available hour the past week bobbing up and down in Pinellas County’s warm and crystal-clear Gulf. An even bigger relief is this: The red tide hasn’t followed me. Or at least not yet. People would certainly blame me for that one. And it doesn’t help that your city is called CLEARwater! That’s a lot of pressure. So yes, I’m knocking on wood, crossing my ngers and toes, and praying to the stars above. Any day now, for good measure, my rabbit’s foot should be arriving by FedEx. That beats the seahorse head that would no doubt wind up in my bed if that dreaded blue-green algae shows up here. Anyway, now that I’m in the clear for now, I’ve enjoyed reacquainting myself with a place I haven’t visited since the late ’70s. How charming to see you haven’t changed one bit. Ha! Just joking, of course. The grand and glorious hotels and resorts are sure impressive and I was awestruck as I rst approached them. I truly had no idea. My goodness how big you’ve gotten. But, seeing as everyone seems to be friendly, it’s nice to know it hasn’t gone to your head. Nor your Hilton head (you’ll get used to my bad jokes). Then there’s your No. 1 beach in America ranking. I’m pinching myself that I’ll get the chance to be a part of that setting. Another delight I’ve discovered is your steady stream of world-class entertainment in your downtown. The rst weekend I’m here and you’re telling me The Fixx is in town? I’ve always loved their alt-rock classic “Red Skies.” But there’s that word again – red. (Hey, I just checked the tour schedule of Sammy Hagar, the Red Rocker, just in case. How’s that for paranoia? No plans for Clearwater anytime soon. Whew. As for the members of Simply Red … don’t you even think about it.) OK, now I’m back in my car, visiting the outskirts. Belleair Bluffs looks nice, but where are the bluffs? Yes, I know your max elevation of 46 feet makes you the county’s tallest town, but come on now. Funny, in Wisconsin (my home state, Go Big Red!) I’ve covered a place called Menomonee Falls, where the longest drop-off of water is a foot and a half, and a place called Summit, where the highest point came in the form of a speed bump. So, I’ll give the folks in the Bluffs a break. Now I’m out in the countryside, east of Belcher Road. Just like that, one turn to the right and there’s rural tranquility and Allen’s Creek to anchor it. How nice this manages to exist in such an urban region. I’ve rolled down the windows, the breeze in a face that is turning a bit red – of course. Next stop is … well, every block or so! My goodness there are a lot of red lights here. And there’s that word again. But with traf c comes lots of energy and a clear sign that people want to be here. And that includes yours truly. And speaking of red skies, looks like another perfect sunset is easing its way down to end this perfect day. Wow. Look at those colors. Here’s to me becoming an asset to your community – you know, on the positive side of the ledger. By no means do I want to put you in the red.John Morton is a staff reporter for Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Faith 13A Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018My two girls Randi, 14, and Graci, 12, are at the age where they can stay home alone and now babysit. My sister just had a baby boy and has a 2-yearold little girl, but before they can start babysitting for her kids they thought it would be good to take a babysitting course. We heard from a friend about Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and their one-day Safe Sitter Essentials program at their Education and Conference Center, 701 Fourth St. S., St. Petersburg. It is offered several times a year from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for $55. The program is limited to 16 students, so you need to register early. The spots fill up fast. The class is offered to boys and girls from ages 11-14. My girls recently took the class and loved it. They both told me they feel so much more con dent about working with young kids after taking the class. As a parent, it eases my mind knowing they feel this way so when they are offered a babysitting job they will be able to handle it. The two instructors, Kristi Dahl and Iris Merryweather, have been teaching the course for years together. At the end of the day parents were invited to a short ceremony to hear what the kids learned and to see them receive their certi cates. After the instructors went over what they learned and hearing my girls tell me all about their day at the class, I was so happy my girls attended the program. It’s something I wish I would have had as a teen. They learned how to change a diaper, feed a baby, not to warm a bottle in the microwave or it could burn a baby’s esophagus, what to do with kids if they are having temper tantrums, how to do CPR on a child and infant and what to do if a child is choking. These are great skills everyone should know. What’s great about this course is they got hands-on instruction and practiced CPR and the choking rescue on mannequins. What a great way to learn and feel confident so if you ever needed to perform CPR you would know how to do it. My girls know how important CPR is as a little over a year ago their grandpa had sudden cardiac arrest and the man who performed CPR helped save his life. That man had just learned CPR, so it can happen and you need to be prepared. The instructors also had an infant simulator to show what happens to the brain of the baby when you shake a baby for just a few seconds. They also went over some reasons babies and children cry and what to do. And if you feel frustrated or can’t calm the baby to put the baby in the crib or playpen and to call the parents. These skills are not only for kids who want to babysit, but they are life teaching skills and lifelong skills. The next class is Sept. 29.

Presented by American Craft Endeavors, the annual craft showcase will feature an array of handmade items. The unique and affordable arts and crafts found at the festival comes from some of the state’s top crafters and green market vendors. The outdoor craft festival offers a chance for residents and visitors to peruse and shop from thousands of quality, handmade works while meeting the individual artisans and discovering the inspiration and practical use behind each piece. The craft festival is pet-friendly for leashed animals, and includes a full greenmarket of live plants, handmade soaps, delicious edibles and more. The festival is free and open to the public. A juried outdoor craft showcase, participating artisans are handselected from hundreds of applicants. On display will be a vast array of artistic media, including folk art, pottery, personalized gifts, handmade clothing, basket weaving, beaded utensils, candles, cork assemblage, fabric design, ber quilts, fused wax and glass, hair accessories, handbags and accessories, handmade cards, leather, mosaic, wood, painted wood, plaster craft and stained glass, among others. The festival also will include a green market with exotic live plants, handmade soaps, savory dips, and gourmet sauces. The Palm Harbor Craft Festival bene ts the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce and Merchant Association. Taking part in this year’s festival is Martha Stolz of Clearwater. She will be displaying and selling her pottery. “I began my love for working in clay in the late 1970s after taking classes through the city of Clearwater,” Stolz said in an email from American Craft Endeavors. “At that time, the city of Clearwater did not have electric wheels, so I learned to throw on a kick wheel, creating my own power in making my pottery.” In the ensuing years, marriage, kids and life got in the way of her new pursuit and she fell away from the creative side of pottery. The love of the craft stuck with her, though. She found herself drawn to pottery when visiting art festivals. “In early 2010, my family and I visited St. Petersburg Clay Company and Highwater Clay as our daughter needed a tool for her high school ceramics class,” Stolz said. “My husband and daughters encouraged me to enroll in classes through the Morean Arts Center for Clay that summer. I found that, like riding a bicycle, I had not really forgotten the basics of how to throw a pottery bowl.”See HAPPENINGS, page 10B Palm Harbor  Sept. 8-9, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 1023 Florida Avenue, Palm Harbor Getting crafty in Palm Harbor Photos courtesy of AMERICAN CRAFT ENDEAVORSTop: Clearwater’s mixed media artist Amanda Harris crafts beautiful, themed wreaths.

Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018 Entertainment Extra3B CLEARWATER – Pablo Cruise will perform Friday, Sept. 14, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $29. Call 727-791-7400 or visit In 1975, Pablo Cruise released its rst A&M album simply entitled “Pablo Cruise.” According to the band’s Facebook page, the album cover was shot in the tropical gardens of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park and featured a huge gorilla standing front and center. The band – including David Jenkins on guitars and vocals, Cory Lerios on keyboards and vocals, Steve Price on drums and Bud Cockrell on bass and vocals – was nowhere in sight. Back in those days, it wasn’t unusual to hear someone ask the question “which one’s Pablo?” The band, which is a quartet, would answer, “he’s the guy in the middle.” When asked what Pablo Cruise meant, the band’s well-rehearsed answer explained that Pablo represents an honest, real, down-to-earth individual; and Cruise depicts his fun-loving, easy-going attitude toward life. From 1975 through 1985, Pablo Cruise toured the United States, Canada and Japan extensively, reaching the top 10 with mega hits such as “Whatcha Gonna Do When She Says Goodbye?,” “Love Will Find a Way” and several other Top 20s. The band went on to sell several million albums and singles collectively and established themselves as well respected writers and performers within the industry. By 1985, after completing several national tours and releasing seven studio albums in all, the band decided to go on hiatus. In 2005, a reunited Pablo Cruise picked up where they left off and today the band performs all over the U.S. and Canada. Since getting back together, they have released two live CDs and a DVD all through Sony Music documenting their exceptional live shows. “One of the great things about playing shows after all these years is that the core band, David, Steve and myself are still here and lovin’ it,” said Lerios. “Going out and playing shows these days gives us the opportunity to not only pay tribute to our timeless repertoire, it gives us a chance to see old friends and fans from back in the day as well as gaining a whole new audience.” For information and a complete list of tour dates, visit www.pab courtesy of CAPITOL THEATREPablo Cruise takes the stage Sept. 14 at Capitol Theatre. PABLO CRUISE Capitol Theatre Boy nds gun. It’s kind of obvious that with an opening like that, the ensuing story will likely take a tragic turn. In “Kin,” the kid is 14-year-old African-American Eli (Myles Truitt). Living in a neighborhood of Detroit seemingly surrounded by derelict industrial complexes and abandoned houses, Eli has come to a crossroads as the lm opens: He’s gotten into some trouble at school and his adoptive father Hal (Dennis Quaid) – raising Eli as a single parent after the death of his wife – senses that the teenager is on the verge of choosing a path of delinquency. In fact, Eli has already made some bad decisions. He makes money scraping copper and other metals he nds in shuttered factories, ignoring the encircling fences and the “no trespassing” signs. It is during one of these excursions that he nds something inexplicable and clearly dangerous. Bad decision No. 2: He acquires a weapon. And this isn’t just any gun. This is a high-tech, futuristic, self-evidently not-made-on-Earth gun. This is the kind of gun that you need to have in order to kill the nal boss in a video game. Yet, Eli decides to toss it in his duf e bag, take it home and shove it under his bed. To be fair, it is the arrival of Eli’s brother – Hal’s biological son – that takes a potentially bad situation and makes it a million times worse. Jimmy (Jack Reynor), who has just been released from a sixyear stretch in prison, shows up on the doorstep. Jimmy may be hoping to reconcile with both his father and Eli, but he also has an ulterior motive. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that Jimmy is the King of Bad Decisions. His recklessness eventually infuriates Taylor (James Franco), a local gangster. Jimmy owes Taylor $60,000 for “protection” in prison. A plan to steal funds to pay off the debt goes awry with disastrous consequences and puts both brothers on the road and on the run. In addition to raving mad Taylor and his gang, two otherworldly uniformed soldiers are pursuing them, trying to recover the weapon Eli is still carrying in his duffle bag. “Kin” desperately wants to be both relevant and entertaining. It wants to address social issues. It wants to explore family dynamics. It wants to mimic a morality play. It also wants cool special effects, big explosions and two Daft Punk wannabes weaving in and out of traf c at high speeds as if they’re riding Light Cycles from “Tron.” In this case, blending too many genres resulted in a disjointed film that has sporadic moments of brilliance and poignancy but is otherwise awkward, dull and plodding. The fault lies mainly with the filmmakers, including directors Jonathan and Josh Baker; and Daniel Casey, who wrote the screenplay. The actors all handle their roles tidily, with particularly strong performances by Truitt and Reynor. Franco’s Taylor brings to mind Gary Oldman’s Drexl Spivey in “True Romance.” One of the biggest problems in “Kin” is that the audience has difficulty finding compassion for the protagonists. The script focuses too little on Eli and too much on Jimmy. Even though we know Jimmy wants to protect his brother, his impudence and unreliability make it impossible for the audience to empathize with his plight. The most likable character in the story turns out to be Milly (Zo Kravitz), a stranger the brothers latch on to while crossing the country. Kravitz does an exceptional job in a role that should have been much expanded. Sadly, “Kin” squanders the talents of a ne cast as it meanders from genre to genre trying to nd purpose. Though disappointing, the lm has periodic passages that transcend the filmmakers’ many missteps and a denouement that salvages the scithread of the muddled storyline.

Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret.

Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018 5BcravingsTAMPA BAY By LOGAN MOSBY Tampa Bay NewspapersRoosterFish Grill may not be located within view of the Gulf, but don’t let that fool you – this restaurant is serious about its seafood. Nestled along Missouri Avenue, just north of West Bay Drive in Largo, RoosterFish is cozy and appealing, with its pine walls, nautical decor and relaxed atmosphere. A variety of maritime-themed rooms, including the Cove, the Boathouse, the Hammerhead Lounge, or during more temperate weather, an outside deck seating area, evoke a casual, unhurried char acter that invites customers to come in and take a load off. “If you’re looking for super stuffy and white linen tablecloths, you’re not going to nd that here,” RoosterFish co-owner Fred Hurley said. But if you’re in the mood for high quality fresh seafood on a family-friendly budget, RoosterFish is just what you’re looking for. And Hurley knows what he’s talking about. He teamed up with co-owner Sean Mullaney almost six years ago to open RoosterFish after having worked together for more than 10 years in Manatee County. The lifelong restauranteurs wanted to spread their wings – and their love of seafood – and decided to settle a bit inland. “We decided to go out and do our own thing,” Hurley said. Mullaney said that while crafting the menu, he really wanted to showcase fresh sh. “A lot of places that have the million-dollar view of the ocean, don’t have to have the million-dollar food,” Mullaney said. “Everything we can buy fresh, we do buy fresh.” And what they’ve done is create a menu any seafarer or landlubber can enjoy. “I like to put it, we are a casual seafood restaurant with non-swimmers items available,” Hurley said. RoosterFish’s menu is a compilation of traditional seafood offerings, from sh and chips, peel and eat shrimp and Maine lobster, along with a variety of non-seafood options, including grilled chicken, baby back ribs and steaks. But it’s the sh that’s the star of the show. Some of the restaurant’s best sellers include the cedar plank salmon, which is marinated in bourbon, soy and pineapple and sesame; the mahi-mahi, served blackened or grilled, and the fresh from the Gulf grouper, which can be grilled, blackened or fried. Portions are plentiful and the avors bold. The restaurant, open seven days a week, features daily specials and an extensive margarita menu. Appetizers range from $6 to $10; lunch items $8 to $16; and dinner items $13 to $20. But for regular customers Bob Carr and Maryann LaGrossa of Largo, it’s the good food and the good fellowship that brings them back for more. “It’s like Cheers – everybody knows your name,” LaGrossa said. “The food is fabulous and they don’t kill you price-wise,” Carr said. “It’s so fresh, so good and so consistent.” From your kitchen Ingredients3 4 lbs. beef, cubed (I use a Sirloin Tip Roast) 1 can golden mushroom soup l package of onion soup mix Fresh garlic, minced Fresh or canned mushrooms 1 can burgundy wine or other red wine like merlot or cabernetDirectionsCombine all ingredients, put in a casserole, cover and bake 350 degrees for 3 hours.

Melt all of the above, and add onion, cheese, corned beef and sour cream. Cook on low and when it’s all mixed together and creamy looking, it’s ready for dipping with cocktail rye bread or crackers!

Children may be learning eating habits from their parents, potentially contributing to rising obesity rates in children as well. Recent ndings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate one in five school-aged children and young people in the United States is obese. In Canada, the Public Health Agency says roughly one in seven children is obese. Teaching children healthy eating habits starts at home and can extend to what students are given to eat while at school. The Center for Science in the Public Interest says schools across the country are working hard to improve school nutrition. Here’s how parents and school districts can help make school lunches more nutritious and delicious and lower in calories.  Control snack intake. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that more than one-fourth of kids’ daily caloric intake comes from snacking. Choosing smarter snacks may help reduce overeating. Good snacks can include grain products that contain 50 percent or more whole grains by weight; snacks in which the primary ingredient is a fruit, a vegetable, dairy product, or lean protein; snacks that are a combination food that contain at least a 14 cup of fruits or vegetables; and foods that contain no more than 200 calories.  Read nutritional information. When selecting foods for school lunches, parents should read the nutritional information to make sure they know exactly what they are feeding their children. Select foods that are low in saturated fats and cholesterol and high in ber and nutrient-rich fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes.  Go with water. Rethinking beverage choices can help control kids’ caloric intake. Many people don’t realize just how many calories beverages add to their daily intake. Even a sixounce, 100-percent apple juice can include as many as 96 calories. Sodas and other soft drinks pack a hefty caloric punch. Water, seltzer and unsweetened iced tea are healthy beverage options. If milk is the go-to beverage, choose a reduced-fat version.  Introduce new foods. Children can be notoriously picky eaters, but with patience and perseverance, parents can introduce new, healthy foods at lunchtime. Yogurt, hummus and salsa are healthy and can add avor to vegetables and fruit. When making sandwiches, exchange re ned breads for whole-grain varieties. Choose lean protein sources, and go heavy on vegetables and fruits for natural ber.  Read the school menu. Let children indulge in ordering from the school menu when healthy options are featured. Urge them to try something unexpected, rather than sticking to chicken nuggets or pizza days. Promote healthy weight starting with school lunch Kid’s Corner Healthy eating habits begin in childhood and can be initiated with school lunch. Although there are a variety of theories behind the growing obesity problem plaguing North American adults and children, the most consistent ndings point to caloric intake as the culprit. Here’s a simple equation to get to the root of the problem: Calories eaten > calories spent = weight gain. 090618 090618 090618 081618 15031 Gulf Blvd., Madeira Beach, FL 33708 frabottasitaliankitchen Happy HourEveryday 2-6pmEarly Dinner Specials M-F Daily Featured Specials Outdoor Patio Across From The Beach with purchase of $25 or more Exp. 10-5-18 PIZZA SUBS CALZONES SANDWICHES BEER WINE DAILY SPECIALS PIZZA BY THE SLICE 15% off Where The Locals Eat Lunch & Dinner Specials Childrens Menu Outdoor Patio Takeout Always Available Tripadvisor Certi cate of Excellence Award 2011-2018 Keegan's Seafood Grille Open Sun.-Thur. 11am-10pm Fri.-Sat. 11am-11pm16th Ave. & Gulf Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach 727-596-2477 090618 090618

10B Entertainment Seminole Beacon, September 6, 2018Attendees may bring chairs and blankets. Alcohol and glass containers are not permitted in the park. For more information, visit or call 727-391-8345. Following is a look at this year’s scheduled performers:  Sept. 7 – Trop Rock Junkies, sponsored by Waste Management of Pinellas  Sept. 14 – Tailspin, sponsored by Largo Medical Center  Sept. 21 – Rockin’ Raccoons, sponsored by Barnhorn Financial  Sept. 28 – Erica DiCeglie, sponsored by Bluegreen Vacations  Oct. 5 – Comfort Zone, sponsor to be determined  Oct. 12 – LaTraia Savage: Divas of Soul, sponsored by the law of ces of DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis In addition to the music, Seminole Recreation’s special events coordinator Duane Crandall said attendees also will have an opportunity to check out a recent addition to the park. “This year people can come out and meet the park’s newest resident, a yet-to-be-named Gator on our playground,” Crandall explained. Don’t worry: It’s not real. “Also, on Sept. 14 we will have our National Anthem sung by local Ceirra Reynolds in conjunction with our Fire Fighters Local 2896 Honor Guard presenting the colors and performing their bell ceremony.” The special presentation on Sept. 14 will begin at 6:45 p.m. The annual music series is one of the city’s signature events. The outdoor shows attract area concertgoers. “On average, we get between 500 and 2,000 people at each concert,” Crandall said. “This draws folks from all over, even across the bay.” The Trop Rock Junkies will kick off this year’s Music in the Park series performing Friday, Sept. 7, 7 p.m., at the park. The band has earned a reputation as one of the top acts in the “trop rock” music genre nationwide. The Trop Rock Junkies scored Band of the Year nominations from the Trop Rock Music Association in 2016 and 2017 in addition to four Trop Rock Music Award nominations in 2012 and in 2013. Steve Tolliver, the band’s front-man, won the association’s Songwriter of the Year award in 2014. The band is known by trop rock fans nationwide for high-energy, tropical-themed rock, beach, surf and party favorites. They have performed on Bourbon Street in New Orleans as well as Duval Street in Key West. They’ve made appearances at festivals throughout the Southeast. Concertgoers can expect a mix of Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band and other favorite tropical-themed covers in addition to Trop Rock Junkies’ originals. Tolliver can’t wait to hit the stage at Seminole City Park. “Besides always having a love for music and being a creative person, there is nothing more rewarding than looking out into an audience and seeing someone singing along to the words of a song you wrote or just tapping their feet, clapping and dancing to something you created,” Tolliver said. Visit for more information about the band. Tailspin secured the second spot in the Music in the Park lineup, performing Friday, Sept. 14. Tailspin is a four-piece band playing a variety of music from classic rock songs of the ’60s and ’70s to current hits as well as Americana, R&B, soul and country. According to the band’s website, Tailspin features Charlie Boice on guitar and lead vocals, Ted Feinman on keyboards and vocals, Jim Lafrinere on drums and vocals and John Baccoli on bass and vocals. Boice, the band’s front-man, hails from New Jersey but relocated to Florida in 1974. He has been singing for most of his life, performing everywhere from choirs to street corners. His early in uences include Bob Bylan, Frank Zappa and The Beatles. Visit for more information about the band. Rockin’ Raccoons will perform Friday, Sept. 21. The band plays classic to contemporary covers. Band member Malissa Myers has lived in Florida since 1983. She joined her sister in a band called Road Doll, recording at Criteria Studios based in Miami. “We love playing for people who appreciate live music,” Myers said. “Outdoor venues like this are a great place for likeminded people to sit back and forget about their troubles and sing along to their favorite songs.” Visit for more information about the band. Erica DiCeglie will perform Friday, Sept. 28. DiCeglie, an accomplished singer/songwriter, brings to the stage a sweet and soulful vibe with a hint of country air. She and her band perform regularly throughout the Tampa Bay area and beyond. She has opened for national acts such as Big Daddy Weave and Ginny Owens, and most recently for the Temptations at the prestigious Clearwater Jazz Holiday. “Some Rainy Day,” the rst release from DiCeglie’s upcoming EP “My Blue,” is now available on all music platforms. “I’ve always been singing, since I was a little girl, and I always knew that there is no greater joy than sharing the gift of music with others,” DiCeglie said. “The Tampa Bay area has a very unique music scene and it’s been very rewarding to be a part of it.” DiCeglie shared a glimpse at what concertgoers can expect when she and her band perform at Music in the Park. “As a singer/songwriter, I am inspired by a diverse range of artists,” she explained. “My band and I make our own arrangements of some of my favorites: Norah Jones, Aretha Franklin, Glen Campbell, Alison Krauss, Stevie Wonder – a mix of jazz, soul and country, and some of my original songs, as well. It’s always fun, classy and upbeat.” Visit for more information on DiCeglie. Comfort Zone will take the stage Friday, Oct. 5. The band burst onto the musical scene six years ago with their inaugural gig taking place at the prestigious Ruth Eckerd Hall as the preconcert entertainment for Crosby, Stills and Nash. Hailing from Treasure Island, Comfort Zone has performed for thousands at concerts, festivals, private events and select clubs. This powerful six-piece band features four lead singers and delivers music from classic icons such as Queen, Styx, CSN, The Rolling Stones and the Little River Band. In addition, Comfort Zone performs hits from contemporary bands such as Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry and more. Every member of the band developed a love of music at an early age. Each can recall what inspired them to start performing. “The rst Chicago record did it for me,” said Brad Yerger, singer. “Heard it and was hooked for life to perform.” For Cherie Leal, singer, the inspiration came from her musical family. She said she “can’t remember a time I wasn’t singing.” Watching Don Kirchner’s Rock Concerts did it for Ray Boucher, guitarist. “I started playing at 12 years of age and couldn’t imagine doing anything other than playing guitar,” he said. Drummer Tom Baumgartner started at 12 years of age. Hearing Grand Funk Railroad, Boston and Styx on the radio, he knew this was what he wanted to do. Bassist Howard Kleinfeld sums up his inspiration in one word: “Beatles.” Keyboard player Bert Hansen learned to play piano at age 6 and began performing at age 10. Visit for more information about the band. Closing out this year’s series, LaTraia Savage will bring her Divas of Soul tribute show to Seminole City Park Friday, Oct. 12. According to her website, Savage is a vocalist well known for covering a wide variety of genres including jazz, R&B, country, big band, dance, Motown and more. She’s opened shows for several national acts including Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, SOS Band, Frankie Beverly & Maze and Brian Culbertson. Currently she is on the road with her Divas of Soul tribute show. Savage performs hits from Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Donna Summer, Beyonce, Diana Ross and several others. For more information about Savage, visit FEST, from page 1BStolz said it was an adjustment to use an electric wheel, but she was able to make the transition. She is now a member at the Clay Center of St. Petersburg where her work is on exhibit and available for purchase. “My work is also on display and available for purchase at the Cat’s Meow in Pineville, Georgia, near Calloway Gardens and at Creativity in Largo,” she added. Also taking part in this year’s festival are Christine and David Goshorn of Largo. Christine and David have been making jewelry ever since attending jewelry classes together in the early 1980s. They make all their work from materials such as sterling silver, 14k gold, dichroic glass and Swarovski crystals. All work is done in their fully equipped jewelry shop in Largo, and exhibited at ne art festivals across the Southeast United States. Palm Harbor’s own MaryAngela Smith will be on hand at the festival with her paintings. “When I was in preschool, my favorite time of way was when I was allowed to draw and paint,” Smith said. “I preferred nature as my source of inspiration. Today, my work re ects my move from Ohio, where I studied ne art at the University of Toledo, to the Gulf Coast of Florida.” Smith is inspired by the beauty of the many beaches and sea life. These, combined with the color palette, work together to form the body of work created in her “Textured Treasures.” “Realism was once my style of choice,” Smith said. “Now the freedom I have found in mixed media has captivated me. No longer bound by technical rigidity, I combine several elements together to bring a unique, 3D element. My coastal scenes invite you to touch the artwork and experience the tactile qualities of each piece. I use many different mediums, such as acrylic, oil and pen and ink, with each piece being an adventure in combined mediums, and embedded, found objects.” Other Pinellas craft artisans scheduled to participate in this year’s festival include Amanda Harris of Clearwater, Amy Wiley of Palm Harbor, Don and Cristina Williams of St. Petersburg, Ken Rosenberger of Safety Harbor, Mark James of St. Petersburg, Rasa Saldaitis of Pinellas Park and Robin Short of Gulfport. American Craft Endeavors produces some of the nation’s high-end juried craft shows in many of Florida’s vibrant downtown areas and popular tourist destinations including the Siesta Key Craft Festival, Sarasota; Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival, Dunedin; and the Downtown Delray Beach Craft Show, Delray Beach. The group’s founders personally select unique, culturally rich cities and towns for their show locations, providing a complete outdoor experience unmatched by other festivals. All crafters are handselected from hundreds of applicants in order to ensure a superior event featuring diverse art media and the highest quality of original handmade crafts.

After all these years, ‘Crazy World’ is still a good motto for our upcoming world tour. We are very much looking forward to seeing all of you out there.” With over 100 million records sold around the world, the band will play fan favorites from their incredible catalogue including “Wind of Change,” “Still Loving You,” “Rock You Like A Hurricane,” “Send Me An Angel” and many more.
