Good riddance, DebbyTropical storm causes problems throughout Pinellas County By SUZETTE PORTERTropical Storm Debby stayed well offshore of Pinellas Countys coastline, but that didnt stop it from causing a myriad of problems. For some it was nothing more than an inconvenience, but to others Tropical Storm Debby has caused a heck of a mess. Tropical Storm Debby made the record books June 23 as the earliest fourth-named storm ever to form during the Atlantic Hurricane season. Pinellas County and the west coast of Florida can thank Debby for one of the wettest Junes on the books. Officials say the storm is proof of their message that it doesnt take a direct hit from a tropical storm or hurricane to cause problems. So far, Sundays weather was the worst of it with high winds buffeting the area and torrential rains continuing until about 3 a.m. Monday. Eight to 10 inches of rain fell within a 24-hour period. Low-lying areas and coastal communities experienced flooding. Roads were closed. Tornado warnings were frequent. Thousands were without power. Mariners were warned to stay ashore. Beachgoers were advised to stay out of the water. Pinellas County partially activated its Emergency Operation Center Sunday night and opened its Citizen Information Center the next morning. The National Hurricane Center issued a tropical storm warning for Pinellas County Monday morning. Soon after, County Commission Vice-Chair Ken Welch signed a resolution declaring a local state of emergency to allow a more rapid response to the situation. Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for the entire state Monday afternoon.Record rainfallAccording to the National Weather Service, the most rain ever reported in June at the Albert Whitted Airport in St. Petersburg was 6.38 inches. Dan Noah, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Ruskin, said June 2012 would definitely set a new record. Noah read off some of the four-day totals as of 2 p.m. Monday from NWS reporting stations around Pinellas: 14.28 inches in Tarpon Springs, 13.66 in Largo, 12.60 in Oldsmar, 12.28 in Pinellas Park, 12.27 in Dunedin and 10.61 in St. Petersburg. Storms like Debby is the reason I have flood insurance, Noah said, although he lives inland, well away from the coast. Noah said Mondays weather was much improved over SunBy SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Work on the Sand Key beach nourishment project is on hold for now. Andy Squires, Pinellas Countys coastal manager, said work stopped Friday, June 22, due to the approach of Tropical Storm Debby. As of Monday afternoon, Squires had no estimate as to when work might begin again. We wont know until this system moves out of the area, he said. Officials spent most of Monday and Tuesday surveying damage from Tropical Storm Debby. Heavy rains, high winds, above-normal tides and high surf buffeted the county all day Sunday and Monday, hitting area beaches very hard. We lost a lot of sand, said Squires. A preliminary report of some of the most-damaged areas include the last mile of Sunset Beach, near Johns Pass, and the south end of the beach at PassA-Grille, where the water has cut into the existing sand dune. Squires said both areas were considered erosion hot spots, because the beaches are narrower than other locations. A report from Dr. Ping Wang with the University of South Floridas Geology Department listed some preliminary observations. Wangs report said the most severe erosion had taken place at the following locations. On Long Key (St. Pete Beach) at Pass-A-Grille Beach south of the snack bar Long Key at Upham Beach, erosion to the seawall on northern extreme fronting condominium buildings. Wang reports that Upham public beach received considerable erosion but a wide beach remains in the area. Sunset Beach on Treasure Island from Caddys on 90th Avenue southward, erosion has cut an additional 10 to 15 feet into the existing sand dune at some locations. Sunshine Beach on Treasure Island, erosion in the area of 126th and 125th avenues. As of early Monday afternoon, the inspection was not complete at Sand Key Beach and Squires did not know the condition of the recent addition of 85 feet of new sand from the nourishment project. Squires said citizen reports had indicated that sand had been lost. Squires said although it was unfortunate that sand was lost so soon after it was replenished, it was possible that the new sand might have protected areas that might have been affected if the beach had been narrower. Storm protection is one of the primary reasons for beach nourishment projects. Wider beaches create a bigger buffer between the land and rising seas and wave action that accompany hurricanes and tropical storms. Squires said after the initial inspection was complete, staff would begin actual measurements to make a determination of how much beach had been lost. But, everything will have to wait until Tropical Storm Debby is done, Squires said.

By TOM GERMONDThe city experienced an average of 12.5 inches of rainfall June 24, with some local areas receiving more. City Public Works Director Brian Usher said June 25 the city is doing a detailed damage assessment based upon calls still coming in, as well as known areas of problems from the storm June 24. Tidal waters were on average 3 feet above normal, with some tributaries seeing levels approaching 3.5 feet above normal, Usher said. Wind damage was reported near the area of Walsingham Road, Hamlin Boulevard, Josephine and 145th Street. Localized flooding from June 24 persisted as the higher than normal water levels in Tampa Bay, as well as along the Intracoastal Waterway, is inhibiting the drainage of water from many storm water drainage systems. This condition will not improve until the winds from the south and southwest abate, predicted to happen sometime [June 26]. Until then, drainage in many lower areas of the city will be very slow, and additional rainfall could again lead to localized street flooding, Usher said. City owned buildings suffered some minor damage, which has been provided to the fire department for the overall damage assessment report, which will be provided later.Wind and rain pummel LargoPhoto by CHARY SOUTHMAYDA billboard and plaza on Walsingham Road in Largo just east of the Walsingham Bridge sustain damage from Tropical Storm Debbys strong winds Sunday.

Latest forecast from the NHC calls for the storm to come ashore along the northwest coast sometime in the next couple of days. Debby remained stalled Monday night and forecasters expected it to begin moving erratically to the northeast in the next couple of days.

The proposed monthly increase for these customers is $5.32 cents, 87 cents higher than the current rate. Multi-family customers proposed rates are $3.19, down 37 cents. City officials say that revenue only increases when new customers are annexed or when existing customers redevelop to higher levels of impervious surface. The normally low level of revenue growth cannot keep pace with normal expenditure growth or fund any service enhancements, city officials said. The increase in the fees is the first since April 1, 2008, and was discussed at the commissions May 8 work session and at other city meetings. The multi-family rate is 60 percent of the single-family unit rate. City officials say that high-density residential customers have less impervious surface area than other residential customers because of multi-storied structures. The increase, which is expected to generate $562,000, should be sufficient for five years, city officials said. They base the fees on an equivalent residential unit calculated at 2,257 square feet for singlefamily structures as have many other utility systems. St. Petersburgs monthly fee is $6.84; Clearwaters is $13.04. The ordinance establishing the new rates was passed on first reading.City commissioners tentatively agree to raise stormwater feesFree Genealogy/Family History Classes, Largo Public Library, 120 Central Park Drive.

In Pinellas County, the retail sale or purchase of fireworks that project into the air or explode is prohibited. Pinellas County Public Safety Services urges residents to enjoy fireworks displays that are conducted by trained professionals. Sparklers remain legal, but parents are reminded they can be dangerous, reaching temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Only those over 12 years of age should handle sparklers of any type. Many young people get burned by sparklers every year so adult supervision is necessary at all times. Officials urge citizens to use extreme caution and follow basic safety recommendations: Read all cautions and warnings. Use sparklers only outdoors. Use sparklers as intended do not try to alter or combine them. Do not mix fireworks and alcohol. Never pick up fireworks that may be left over after the display, as they may still be active.

4A Leader, June 28, 2012 night. Gaskins announced the closure about 6:30 p.m. and said that surf and swells were affecting all eight lanes of traffic in both directions. By 8:30 p.m., conditions had improved and southbound lanes reopened. Northbound lanes reopened about 11 p.m. Clearwater Police also closed eastbound lanes on the Courtney Campbell Causeway Monday night due to heavy flooding. It was open again by 2 a.m. For a brief time Monday night, only the Gandy Bridge was open for travel from Pinellas across Tampa Bay.Power restorationAbout 7,324 Progress Energy customers were without power Monday morning. Progress Energy reported that since the effects of Tropical Storm Debby began Sunday, power had been restored to more than 175,000 customers throughout Progress Energys service area. As of Monday afternoon, about 20,000 customers remained without power. Progress Energy expects additional power outages to occur as Debby slowly makes it way toward the west coast of Florida. Officials say that crews are coming in from areas less impacted by the storm, but said repair work is being complicated by high winds and flooding. Customers can report power outages by calling 1-800-228-8485.Storm damageReports of tornados came in from all around Pinellas on Sunday. The NWS released a preliminary report Monday night confirming seven tornados across west central and southwest Florida. Michael Ross of Largo reported damage from what hes sure was a tornado that hit around 3:42 p.m. near Walsingham Road and Hamlin Boulevard. Ross took photos of the damage, including a roof peeled off a unit at a nearby mobile home park. Metal was twisted around a utility pole. At least one sign was down. Debris littered a portion of a sidewalk and bike lane on Walsingham Road. Ross said stores in a nearby shopping area were damaged with several windows blown out. Ross was standing outside and saw the storm coming. I heard it coming and saw the funnel throwing debris over my head, when the windows exploded, Ross said. He said he knew the exact time the storm came through because he received a call on his cell phone as he saw the funnel come down. Ross and his family are safe, just a little shook up. The Largo tornado was not on NWSs list of confirmed twisters. Only one in Pinellas County has been confirmed so far as the real thing. The Pass-a-Grille tornado hit about 8:21 p.m. and traveled about 3.3 miles. It had a width of about 50 yards. The NWS report said that the waterspout moved onshore as a tornado and destroyed the top floor of a tourist rental building. No one was in the top units and no injuries were reported. The tornado had estimated peak winds of 80 to 85 mph. Moderate damage was reported. Baker said no storm damage was found at county facilities. He said an inspection of solid waste operations found no damage. Five lift stations went out Sunday night, but workers used portable equipment to keep up through the night. Officials throughout the county say theyll continue to monitor the weather and respond accordingly. Residents are asked to stay tuned to the media for the latest information.

TORRES Photo by BOB McCLURE Photo by TOM GERMONDStanding water, as seen in front of this condominium complex on Vonn Road June 25, was a typical sight in Largo in Debbys wake. DEBBY, from page 1ADebby is a weak storm, but its big and moving slowly, Noah said. I think well feel the impact most of the week. Tim Closterman, director of Pinellas County Communications, drove out to Redington Beach Monday afternoon to look at conditions. He said Debby was reminiscent of Hurricane Elena, which made landfall near Biloxi, Miss., in 1985. Elena stalled out in the Gulf for a time before making it to land and brought heavy rains to the local area. It was a lot of rain, Closterman said. This is a lot of rain.Flooding problemsPinellas County would remain under a flood warning until at least Tuesday night. Dave Baker, public information manager with Pinellas County Communications, said the NWS had told county officials during a Monday briefing that another 5 to 8 inches of rain could be expected in before the end of the week. Roads in many communities were impassable for a time Sunday afternoon and reports came in from locations throughout Pinellas about stranded vehicles. Clearwater Police report significant flooding in Clearwater Beach, and beach areas were reportedly under water due to flooding. The north end was inaccessible for a time. Flooding was reported on many side streets, including Old Coachman Road and East Enterprise Road, as well as the major thoroughfares of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard and U.S. 19. Largo reported some localized flooding, which persisted into Monday. Officials said higher than normal levels in Tampa Bay, as well as along the Intracoastal Waterway, were inhibiting drainage of water from many stormwater systems. Improvement was not expected until Debby passed out of the area. Pinellas Park police said roads were flooded in several locations and that retention ponds were filled to capacity. They advised motorist to stay home unless travel was necessary. Baker said by Monday afternoon all county roads were open with only a few lingering problems on roads in low-lying areas that typically flood during heavy rains. Baker said the county had closed some roads on Sunday, most of them in northern areas of the county, including Ozona where roads were impassable to normal motor vehicles. Palm Harbor Fire Rescue reported swift, running water flowing over Lake St. George just north of Tampa Road, and Alt. U.S. 19 N. at Tampa Road. Baker said Lake St. George was no longer a problem by Monday afternoon. The Florida Highway Patrol closed I-275 south from the Pinellas Bayway due to flooding. That road remained closed Monday night. Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority suspended service on the Suncoast Beach Trolley, the Central Avenue Trolley, Route 66 and Route 19 north of Westfield Countryside Mall on Sunday. PSTA officials announced Monday morning that several routes were being detoured and that all bus services might be delayed due to flooding. Passengers are advised to check www.PSTA.net for the latest information. The American Red Cross opened one shelter in Pinellas County Sunday night at Chapel on the Hill, 12601 Park Blvd. in Seminole after the Mariners Cove Mobile Home Park in Clearwater was evacuated due to flooding. Janet McGuire, Red Cross regional communication officer, said Monday afternoon that six people had stayed at the Chapel on the Hill shelter Sunday night. She expects them to stay again Monday night, as flooding at the mobile home park has not abated enough for power to be restored. She said the Red Cross is currently looking to open additional shelters in the region as needed. This is going to be an ongoing process, she said. Many roads are flooded and more rain is expected.Bridge closuresThe Florida Highway Patrol closed the Sunshine Skyway Bridge Sunday afternoon after sustained wind speeds reached 40 mph with gusts of 70 mph. Sgt. Steve Gaskins, FHP public affairs officer, confirmed Monday night that the bridge was still closed and would remain closed until conditions improved. Howard Frankland Bridge closed for a couple of hours Monday

Anthony Joseph Giancola, 45, is accused of the stabbing deaths of a man and woman who lived in a group home for the hearing impaired in the Lealman area. Two other women who lived in the home also were stabbed and taken to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Afterwards, authorities believe Giancola traveled to Pinellas Park where he assaulted another man and woman before heading to a third location in Lealman where he used his vehicle to run into four people, before hitting a 13-year-old boy as he fled the scene. He was tracked and arrested by a K-9 Unit with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office a couple of hours later. Giancola remains in the Pinellas County Jail without bond. He is charged with two counts of murder in the first degree and four counts of attempted murder in the first degree. A report from the PCSO shows events beginning about 10:48 a.m., when deputies responded to a call of a stabbing at a group home for the hearing impaired on 35th Way North in St. Petersburg. Detectives say one of the stabbing victims, Justin Lee Vandenburgh, 26, was pronounced dead at the scene.Mary Anne Willis, 59, was transported to Northside Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Two additional stabbing victims, Danielle Gilbert, 25, and Denise Rhoden, 43, were transported to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-lifethreatening injuries. Pinellas Park Police are in charge of the investigation for the next piece of the timeline. Authorities believe that after Giancola left the scene of the stabbings, he traveled to Kenvins Motel on Haines Road in Pinellas Park where two people were assaulted. Pinellas Park police and fire department responded to Kenvins Motel after a report came in about 11:30 a.m. from a tenant that a female was lying face down in a room with a gash in her head and was bleeding. Once on scene, officers began checking the rest of the motel and found another victim, a male, lying on the floor with a head injury. The victims were identified as Kanu A. Patel, 57, and Indiranden Patel, 57, who are husband and wife, and owners of the motel. They were transported to Bayfront Medical Center. Pinellas Park Police Capt. S.A. Forseth said the weapon used during the assault was a hammer. As of Monday, Mrs. Patels condition is stable, while Mr. Patel remains critical. Pinellas Park filed two counts of attempted first-degree murder charges against Giancola. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that about an hour after the stabbings, about 11:40 a.m., Giancola was parked in his 2005 Ford 500 Limited in the parking lot of HCF Foods Discount Store, 5705 58th Ave. N. He then drove across the street to a duplex where he talked to several people standing outside before leaving abruptly. FHP reports that he circled the block, returned to the duplex and collided with three adult females and one adult male head-on as they sat or stood on the front porch of the duplex. He then reversed his truck, drove west on 58th Avenue North and struck a 13year-old child just east of U.S. 19. Tammy Miller, 46, Tammy Dollar, 45, and Sherri Ray, all of St. Petersburg were taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Sgt. Steve Gaskins, FHP public affairs officer, said Dollar and Ray received serious injuries. Darrell Edgar, 45, of St. Petersburg was treated at the scene, as was Kole Price, 13, who was hit as Giancola drove east on U.S. 19. Next, Giancola reportedly drove to the Egg Platter Restaurant, 6767 U.S. 19, which is located across the street from Kenvins. Witnesses told the FHP that he then took off in an older Ford Ranger pickup traveling on U.S. 19. Forseth said a Pinellas Park undercover officer spotted the white pickup near the area of 62nd Avenue and 66th Street North. A PCSO K-9 unit located Giancola about 1 p.m. in the area of 56th Avenue North and 66th Lane North in St. Petersburg. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail about 7 p.m. Giancola is a former principal at a Tampa Middle School. He was fired in 2007 after an arrest for crack cocaine. He was arrested in 2010 by the PCSO for loitering and prowling and possession of cocaine with intent to purchase, which was a violation of his probation with Hillsborough County.Man arrested for sex with minorLARGO A 26-year-old Clearwater man was arrested June 21 after he reportedly had sex with a female under the age of 16, who was known to him. Robert William Bearlepp was charged with lewd and lascivious battery, sexual performance by a child, certain use of computer services prohibited and transmission of material harmful to a minor. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit arrested Bearlepp after he engaged the victim in sexual activity and sent her sexually explicit photos of himself via cell phone. Bearlepp was arrested at the Sheriffs Administration Building located at 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo after he agreed to come in for an interview. Detectives say Bearlepp, developed a friendship and a relationship with the female victim, and engaged her in sexual activity. Detectives say Bearlepp also sent the victim sexually explicit photographs of himself via cell phone and requested she do the same. On June 20, the victim told her parents about the relationship. They in turn reported the crime to the Sheriffs Office. Detectives assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit began to investigate. Detectives made contact with the suspect on June 21 at his place of employment and the suspect agreed to be interviewed at the Sheriffs Administration Building. During the interview, Bearlepp reportedly admitted to the offense and was arrested. He was subsequently transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Detectives say the crime occurred between February and June. Bearlepp is employed by a company that manufactures body lotions. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is a member of the Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.Police look for leads in homicide and arsonPINELLAS PARK The Pinellas Park Police Department is asking for assistance from the public in identifying suspects in the homicide of 69-yearold Gary Yarnell. Police and fire personnel responded to a house fire at 6498 76th Ave. N., on May 28 at around 2 p.m. As firefighters were extinguishing the fire, they found Yarnells body inside the home. After investigating, detectives classified the fire as arson. Anyone with information that could lead to the identity and location of the individuals involved in this homicide can remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County.

By WAYNE AYERSMADEIRA BEACH The city commission took the first steps toward approving what would be the areas only stand-alone full service restaurant located directly on the beach. After hearing plans for the 150-seat upscale eatery at a special meeting June 12, the commission reached a consensus to have principal owner Dave Bekhor and partner Doug Nanni of Tampa work with city staff to move the project forward. The restaurant will be located in a now-vacant property on Gulf Boulevard and 141st Avenue next to Kitty Stuart Park. According to architect Jack Bodziak, a first class chef who has been with a major eating establishment in Tampa has already been hired for the venture. A previous attempt by Bodziak to locate a restaurant at the site was turned down by the commission in October. City Attorney Thomas Trask was concerned that a proposed two-level parking arrangement partly on park property would violate deed restrictions on the parks use. Commissioner Terry Lister had feared the project would turn into another Caddys (a Treasure Island bar often cited for rowdiness). This time, the plans included creation of 14 new parking spaces on the restaurant property that would legally become part of the park. Bodziak said meters on the additional parking spaces could potentially provide the city thousands of extra dollars in parking revenue. A public pavilion would be built with restrooms and a shower for beach patrons. The park currently has no facilities. The city would also be given a seven-foot easement walkway to provide easier access to the beach for pedestrians. Landscaping on the site would be cleaned up too, Bodziak said. Response to the restaurant proposal with amenities added was positive. A great idea, said Commissioner Nancy Oakley. If you can do this and improve that park, thank you very much, said Vice Mayor Robin Vander Velde. Lister was optimistic the park and surrounding area would benefit by the restaurants arrival. Its not a blighted area, but it would be an improvement to put this in, he said. Trask said his concerns were satisfied, except for a couple of minor issues. The project has more steps to go through before becoming a reality. A site plan and development agreement must be approved. Two public hearings on the subject will be held to gauge citizen reaction. But the commissions decision to move forward from the conceptual stage gives the areas first beachfront restaurant a major boost.The restaurant will be located in a now-vacant property on Gulf Boulevard and 141st Avenue next to Kitty Stuart Park. By LESTER R. DAILEYCLEARWATER In 1951, the year he graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in chemical engineering, Ed Collum planned to become a petroleum engineer. But Uncle Sam had other plans for him. Shortly after he began working as a petroleum engineer trainee for Humble Oil, a job that required him to start at the bottom as an oil well roughneck in the Texas oil fields, Collum received orders to report for active duty as an Army officer and fulfill the military obligation he had incurred as an ROTC student in college. He quickly married his sweetheart, Jacquelin Dickson, and headed for his first duty station, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, to learn about guided missile technology. From there, he was transferred to the California Institute of Technology to learn about the workings of the Corporal ground-to-ground missile, Americas first guided missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. After that, he went to the White Sands Proving Grounds, New Mexico, to participate in the test-firing of Corporal missiles. The remainder of his military duty was served at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama, Americas so-called Rocket City. While there, he belonged to the American Rocket Society and rubbed elbows with the pioneers of the aerospace industry, including Dr. Werner Von Braun, the former Nazi rocket scientist who became the father of Americas space program. After completing his Army hitch in late 1954, Collum returned to Humble Oil but found it boring. He had been bitten by the rocketry bug. It was just too exciting, Collum said of rocketry. When you see one missile take off, it gets in your blood. He took a co-workers advice and returned to Georgia Tech to get an advanced degree in something aerospace-related. I really wanted to be a pilot, he said. But I couldnt because Im colorblind. Instead, he got bachelors and masters degrees in electrical engineering. He then was employed by the Georgia Tech Research Center while working toward a Ph.D. in automatic control systems. He completed the classwork for his doctorate but never wrote his dissertation. By then he had two daughters to support, so he took a job at the Honeywell aerospace plant in Clearwater and stayed for the next 35 years. I enjoyed the whole 35 years, he said. One of the things we did was to take commercial computers and miniaturize them for military use. A lot of the computers we used were miniaturized commercial models because we could use the commercial software. Some of the projects that Collum worked on were the X-15 rocket plane; the U-2 and Baby Bird surveillance planes, the Apollo space capsule, a main engine controller for the space shuttle, and the so-called Star Wars missile defense system. He also worked with Lockheed Aircraft, McDonnel Douglas, Boeing Aircraft and Hughes Aircraft to develop advanced missile avionics systems. And he worked with Intel Corporation to create highly sophisticated computer systems for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. These massive parallel computing complexes lead the world in capability, he said. After traveling multi-million miles on airplanes, Collum retired from Honeywell as a Chief Engineering Fellow in 1994. But he stayed on as a consultant for another three years. Now fully retired and widowed, he has exchanged missiles for muskets. As boys, he and his twin brother, Tom, played in the old Confederate trenches that ringed Atlanta, the city where they were born in 1929. The musket balls, rusty bayonets and other Civil War relics he found instilled in him an interest in an-Beachfront restaurant proposed for Madeira Beach

The average price per gallon as of June 24 was $3.42 down 9 cents from last week, 24 cents from last month and 18 cents from a year ago, according to AAAs Fuel Gauge Report. Floridians were paying about 16 cents less than the national average. According to AAAs Fuel Gauge Report, the average price in the state was $3.26 on June 24, which is nearly 6 cents less than last week, 24 cents less than last month and nearly 30 cents less than a year ago. The average pump prices for a gallon of regular in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metro area was $3.20, which was 5 cents under last weeks price, 23 cents less than a month ago and 30 cents less than last year. The good news is retail gas prices continue to drop and are forecast to retreat throughout the month, said Jessica Brady, AAA spokesperson, The Auto Club Group. AAA reported June 19 that motorists in all states within the continental United States were paying less than $4 a gallon of regular gasoline. Media sources reported June 22 that it was possible for gas prices to drop to $3 a gallon by end of October. EIA officials did not speculate on just how low prices might drop this year. However, in its short-term energy outlook released June 12, officials lowered the price forecast for regular gasoline by 19 cents. The EIA now says the average annual price for 2012 should be $3.56 per gallon, compared to $3.53 in 2011. Current projects for 2013 show the price decrease continuing with an annual average price at $3.51 a gallon. Everyone points to hurricane season as one variable that could drastically affect prices this summer. The EIA, based on the 2012 hurricane outlook from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, ran a simulation that resulted in about a 40 percent chance of outages to offshore oil or natural gas production equal or greater than 2011.Other factors that could affect future gas prices are global warfare, economic conditions and the upcoming presidential election.Fourth of July travel projectionsAAA says 4.9 percent more Americans will travel for the 2012 Independence Day holiday, which ties the record set in 2007 for the high volume in the past decade. According to a press release, AAA projects 42.3 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home during the six-day travel period, Tuesday to Sunday, July 3-8. The mid-week holiday date isnt expected to keep people at home. AAA projects that 4 percent more will travel by automobile this year, in part due to lower gas prices. About 35.5 million plan to travel by automobile, setting the high-water mark for the decade, AAA said. Air travel is projected to increase by more than 9 percent, as airfares remain the same as last year. AAA says 2012 is the third consecutive year of an increase in Fourth of July air travel. Hotel rates are higher this year and car rental rates are down, much the same scenario as Memorial Day. Rates at AAA three diamond accommodations are up 4 percent and 9 percent at two diamond hotels. The economy continues to play a part in holiday travel with average spending projected to go down by 7 percent to $749, as compared to $807 in 2011. Most potential holiday-travelers say they plan to spend time visiting with family and friends and sightseeing as opposed to shopping and entertainment.Tow to GoAAA continues to collaborate with Budweiser to provide Tow to Go throughout the states of Florida, Georgia and the western two-thirds of Tennessee. From Wednesday, July 4, through Sunday, July 7, motorists who have had too much to drink at bars or restaurants can call 1-800-AAA-HELP for a free tow and ride home. The service is free to AAA members and nonmembers and is 100 percent confidential. Since its inception in 1988, Tow to Go has safely removed more than 18,000 drunk drivers from roads. In 2011, AAA received 3,000 calls.

BriefsTropical storm Debby has put a halt on the fishing for a few days now, and its certainly too early to say when things will get back to normal around here. Last week before Debby got organized in the Gulf we got a much-needed stretch of days with east winds. The only downside was that these were some fairly stout east winds, making it too rough to do anything offshore and definitely not the greatest conditions for inshore. The only real upside is that early in the week we had some astronomical new moon tides, which for a few days really had the redfish chewing. Tarpon fishing has been slow overall. The beaches have really started to thin out and unless you braved the outgoing tide at Egmont or Anna Maria late last week, you are probably in the same boat as me. Not to worry however, their will still be plenty of tarpon to be caught this summer. Tampa Bay bridges and deep back bay holes will hold good concentrations of late summer tarpon. Target the bridges on an incoming tide with live shrimp or ladyfish. Concentrating your efforts on the up-tide shadow line will produce the best results. Back bay laid up tarpon is a whole different animal. These fish are lazy and wont move far for bait. Often dead bait on the bottom will work best, i.e. mullet, ladyfish or shad. However, these fish will strike a well-presented artificial bait as well. Top tarpon plugs are the TT series by Mirro-Lure and the Baitbuster by D.O.A. Gag grouper season opens on the first and as long as the weather calms down you might get a chance to target both gags and red snapper this weekend. Plenty of gags can be found in shallow depths inside of 80 feet. Target natural ledges, pipeline rubble and major artificial reefs. Many of the published artificial reefs are holding good grouper as well and havent been pressured since the closure went into effect. Red snapper will be found a bit deeper. Depths of 100 feet and out will be a better bet. Bring plenty of frozen sardines and some frisky pinfish and you should be covered for both species.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail .com.10A Outdoors Leader, June 28, 2012 WE BUY G LDALEXISDIAMONDHOUSE13684 Walsingham Rd., Largo(Next to Five Guys and Starbucks)727-518-6191 www.alexisdiamonds.com012612 BANKRUPTCY LAW Free Consultation Save Your Home Eliminate Credit Card Debt Stop Creditor Harassment Obtain a Fresh Start Affordable Attorneys Fee Colin A.

This happens at sea too. The warmer the waters become, the more active our local bottlenose dolphins become. One form of that greater activity is the appearance of new arrivals. There are three kinds of new arrivals: dolphins we havent seen for years and dolphins were meeting for the first time. There are two kinds of dolphins to meet for the first time: adults weve never seen before and newborn babies (also known as neonates). Weve had an encouraging show of all three kinds of new arrivals thus far in 2012. This is a progress report about our tiny shiny newborns. Five new babies have made their tiny shiny appearances in a fairly steady stream over the last three months. Club gave birth in early April. She and the new baby have stayed close to home, using the same bays that Club used to raise her previous calf (born in 2004). J and Face gave birth in early May. J is very cautious with her newborn, switching from social to secretive. Weve only glimpsed them from a distance. J shepherds them up and down narrow winding passages of water created by parallel seawalls, as she did with her 2008 calf Juno. Js seawall haunting habit is good and bad. Its good because she can hunt along the seawalls while keeping the tiny baby at her side, boats motor by slowly and theres a small volume of water to monitor for danger compared to open bays (like newborns everywhere, neonatal dolphins make easy prey). Its bad because theres more stray fishing line to hook. Indeed, Js previous calf Juno was one of the three dolphins weve seen entangled in fishing line over the course of our study, and one of two whose fishing line magically vanished without human intervention. Hes out there now, feeling his way through the first treacherous weeks of life without mom and, perhaps not surprisingly, showing a penchant for seawall hunting.Face has also been very private with her newborn. During the days she uses the waters off our least developed coastlines, which includes the area where we found the body of her previous calf Falco (as told in Dolphin Watchs in a good or bad way, I darent say). During the evenings, she swims on the periphery of other dolphins who gather together at sunset, not yet ready to join the festivities directly. FM and Slightwin had babies by the middle of June. Both moms spend their time swimming very slowly with tiny shiny newborns who bob at their sides more like rubber duckies in the bathtub than slide along as the sleek capitalists of the seas. FMs previous calf Fennel, easily identified by the deep divot behind his dorsal fin, showed that local dolphins occasionally swim in family groups as he briefly reunited with his mom and new sibling the other night. Small from his fight to heal from a shark bite last year, I wish he could stay under his moms protection a little longer. Slightwins neonate is her first, making Slightwin a primipare, mom for the first time. In nearby Sarasota, a primipare returns to her mothers group as she graduates from apprentice to master of the art of mothering. But in Johns Pass, primipares manage motheringA steady stream of babies alone. We used to see Slightwins mom Slight several times a month. But we havent seen her for the last 10 months. I watch for her zealously, hoping her disappearance after the death of her neonate last May isnt permanent (as told in Dolphin Watchs Not a happy mothers day). We havent named any of the newborns. Superstitiously, we wait until the baby dolphin is three months old before choosing a name. Weve seen 71 newborns from 2005 to the present. Two-thirds of these are born to resident moms. One-third belongs to moms who visit our lovely local waters because they are safe nursery grounds. The annual pattern of births forms a beautiful bell curve. June is baby month, host to 38 percent of the newborns. Over 75 percent of our local babies are born in May, June and July. Clubs April baby was an early arrival and September babies are late arrivals. We had bumper crops of babies in 2008 and 2011. It will be interesting to see what happens with the reproductive status of our local bottlenose dolphins throughout the rest of the summer, and I will keep you posted.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Torres jtorres@tbnweekly.com General Editorial editorial@tbnweekly.comCirculation: L. Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563VA wants to hear from veteransU.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki often reminds us: as the tide of war recedes we have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to anticipate the needs of returning veterans. As these newest veterans return home, we must ensure that they have access to quality mental health care in order to successfully make this transition to civilian life. Last year, the VA provided specialty mental health services to more than 1.3 million veterans a 35 percent increase since 2007 in the number of veterans who received mental health services at the VA. Thats why we recently announced that the VA will add an additional 1,600 mental health staff professionals and an additional 300 support staff members nationwide, including 54 new mental health staff at the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System. Currently, the Bay Pines VA employs about 210 mental health clinicians and support staff across the healthcare system, which includes the main medical center campus and satellite outpatient clinics in Bradenton, Fort Myers, Naples, Palm Harbor, Port Charlotte, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, and Sebring. These efforts to hire more mental health professionals build on our record of service to veterans. President Obama, Secretary Shinseki and the leaders of the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System have devoted more people, programs, and resources to veteran mental health services to ensure our nations heroes have immediate access to high quality mental health care. The VA has increased the mental health care budget by 39 percent since 2009. Whats more, weve increased the number of mental health staff members by 41 percent since 2007. That means today, we have a team of professionals thats 20,590 strong all dedicated to providing much needed direct mental health treatment to veterans. While we have made great strides to expand mental health care access, we have much more work to do. The men and women who have had multiple deployments over a decade of combat have carried a tremendous burden for our country. Thats why Secretary Shinseki has challenged the department to improve upon our progress and identify barriers that prevent veterans from receiving timely treatment. As we meet with veterans here, we learn firsthand what we need to do to improve access to care. Secretary Shinseki has sought out the hardest-to-reach, most underserved places from the remote areas of Alaska to inner city Philadelphia to hear directly from veterans and employees. And were taking action to reach out to those who need mental health care instead of waiting for them to come to us. Our mission is to increase access to our care and services. Weve greatly increased the number of Veterans Readjustment Counseling Centers throughout the country. Weve also developed an extensive suicide prevention program that saves lives every day. For example, our team at the Veteran Crisis Line has fielded more than 600,000 calls from veterans in need and helped rescue more than 21,000 veterans who were in immediate crisis. Thats 21,000 veterans who have been saved. The mental health of Americas veterans not only touches those of us at the VA and the Department of Defense, but also families, friends, co-workers, and people in our communities. We ask that you urge veterans in your communities to reach out and connect with VA services. To locate the nearest VA facility or Vet Center for enrollment and to get scheduled for care, Veterans can visit the VAs website at www.va.gov. Immediate help is available at www.VeteransCrisis Line.net or by calling the Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 (push 1) or texting 838255. To learn more about the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, veterans can call 888-820-0230 or visit www.baypines.va.gov.

The city says that this new system of irrigation is cheaper and it will be better on the environment, because high quality drinking water shouldnt be used for lawn irrigation. However, most people, at least in my neighborhood, irrigate using the water from a well, so it is already free. However, it is true that there should be another way to irrigate your lawn if you dont have a well. But is no one thinking of the safety aspects of reclaimed water? There are also safety factors that play a part with reclaimed water. The city says that reclaimed water has no physical effects when coming into contact with our skin. Even so, they say that immuno-compromised persons should irrigate only when they will be inside, and that reclaimed water should not be used for recreational use involving bodily contact. That means parents wouldnt be able to fill up a kiddy pool with the hose for children to play in on a hot, summer day. They also say that vegetable gardens and other edible crops should not be watered with reclaimed water, unless they will be peeled or cooked before consumption. For example, if you have a garden with strawberries or potatoes or carrots, you cant eat them unless they are cooked. Knowing that, would you want to eat food from somebodys garden that had been watered with reclaimed water, even if it had been cooked? Last but not least, some plants cannot grow with reclaimed water. This is because of the high chloride levels in the water that are necessary to clean the water in the first place. Azaleas and Chinese privet have no tolerance for it, meaning they would die if watered with reclaimed water. There are almost 50 other common plants that would probably experience leaf burn if exposed to these high levels of chloride. If plants are dying under exposure to it, then it cant be too good for humans either. All in all, adding reclaimed water to peoples lives may not be the best idea. I agree that using another source of water other than drinking water is better for the environment. However, the solution to this problem should be safe for humans and plants to come into contact with. I think that more research should be done to find a better way to irrigate our lawns in a responsible, environmentally friendly way. I think the city is headed in the right direction, but I dont think this is the best solution. Preston Delaware ClearwaterWriter wrong about ObamaRe: Leaving the party, by Chuck Graham, May 31.Editor: Mr. Graham, you are so wrong about President Obama. He is not taking anything from the 1 percent; he is just asking them to pay their fair share. As a middle class working person, paying my fair share and just making it, why do oil companies get subsidies and large companies get tax breaks? The Republicans wont pass or let anything pass that calls for fair play on big oil making huge profits every quarter or big business companies paying smaller taxes than the middle class people. It would not be taking anything from the 1 percent and making programs that reach everyone like education (who are our future). You call for a change but what is offered is the same old trickle down business running toward another recession. All Republicans worry about is the debt for future generations. But their way is not for the elderly or the middle class. Without some help for education, we wont have to worry about debt for our future generations. Mr. Graham, the wealthy have been given a tax break for eight years, making them richer, while the middle class has not had the same break. Again, what your talents are worth was given to you. As you see Mr. Romney paying 13 percent of his money and still wanting to give bigger tax breaks and outsourcing jobs abroad. That is job killing, sir. President Obama has my vote for government programs that help education and respect seniors too! Barbara Dooley Largo Memories of a third-rate burglaryForty years have passed, and I still miss Watergate. It was a marvelous news story, as well as a mystery tale and morality lesson, all wrapped into one. It didnt have much sex in it, but that didnt matter much when you had spies, burglaries, secret payoffs, lies, betrayal, comedy, a snitch named Deep Throat, illicit tape recordings, blackmail and the gradual, month-by-month unraveling of an attack on our Constitution by the nations highest official: a scoundrel named Richard Nixon. The most endearing virtue of the Watergate story was that, in a city where rogues routinely work their evil and then walk away scot-free, this time the bad guys (or most of them) were caught and punished. Forty of them did prison time. To follow the daily news accounts of Watergate was to watch a large, nasty can of worms turn over, with slimy creatures slithering out at an average rate of two per month. But then good finally triumphed over evil, or seemed to. I never hob-nobbed or even met any of the Watergate-era players, with one exception: Ken Clawson, who became one of Nixons press relations officials. In 1963, just as I was leaving the Toledo Blade after three years, Clawson signed on. I met him briefly, probably at a meeting of Sigma Delta Chi, the journalism fraternity. Clawson became the Blades labor reporter, and did an excellent job, from all accounts. His skills won him a Nieman fellowship at Harvard, and from there he moved on to the Washington Post and, eventually, to the White House. He described himself as one of Nixons spear carriers, and proud of it. He was reputed to have been the perpetrator of dirty tricks that helped to sink Ed Muskies hopes of becoming the 1968 Democratic presidential candidate. That honor went to George McGovern, who Nixon easily defeated. In the marvelous Watergate film, All the Presidents Men, Clawson was portrayed as begging Washington Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein not to mention his friendship with one of the Posts female employees. His memorable defense was Ive got a wife and a family and a dog and a cat. Clawson was not convicted or even implicated in any of the Watergate shenanigans. He died of heart trouble not many years later. One of the few instances of comic relief that brightened the Watergate saga came from Martha Mitchell, wife of Nixons attorney general John Mitchell. Martha (later nicknamed The Mouth of the South) was inclined to drink a lot. When liquored up she telephoned news media and chatted about the hush-hush goings on of her husband and his conniving associates. Nixon later blamed the entire Watergate mess on Martha. He said she so distracted her husband that he was unable to manage the store (i.e., the break-in and coverup). Nixon told interviewer Robert Frost that if it hadnt been for Martha, Watergate never would have happened. I loved Martha. During the Watergate affair I worked in Tampa for a company whose executives tended to be conservative in political outlook. So I revealed little of my satisfaction at watching Nixon and his gang exposed. But each evening I hustled to my home in Indian Rocks Beach in time to catch the network news and the latest Watergate revelation. During those two years I felt shame that the White House was occupied by fascist maggots, but proud that in the end they were hunted down and exterminated. My enduring conclusion is that if the USA could withstand the likes of Richard Nixon, we can withstand anyone. I hope Im right. The achievement of reporters Woodward and Bernstein in smoking out the Watergate crooks resulted in a sharp increase in journalism school enrollments. Young men and women looking for meaningful careers realized the enormous good that could come from journalists who smell a rat and then chase it down despite opposition from People in High Places. Today I find myself wondering how many of those Woodward-Bernstein recruits are still on the job. Investigative reporting is hard, expensive work and many of todays news outlets have chosen to reduce their efforts to find the rottenness that is always present in government, big business and other endeavors. But this truth remains: the loftiest role of any reporter is that of watchdog. Watergate proved that. A tragic fallout of the Watergate affair is that it almost surely cost Jerry Ford his chance to be elected president for a full term. In an attempt to heal the nations wounds, Ford granted Nixon a full pardon for his crimes. This angered millions of voters, who responded by electing Jimmy Carter. What irony: an upstanding, decent man (Ford) shows forgiveness to a bum (Nixon) and by doing so hands the presidency to a vacillating wimp (Carter). They say no kindness goes unpunished.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send Driver an email at tralee71@comcast.net.

I often wonder if raising a child today is easier or more difficult than when I was growing up in small towns in the 1960s. For instance, back then, if mom or dad told you to do something, you did it or else. You cleaned up your room, or else. You piped down or else. You stopped teasing the cat or else. Discipline was meted out quickly; lawyers never got involved. The rules were simple and clear: Speak when you are spoken to. Never put anything smaller than a football in your ear. Dont throw rocks at anybody. There was no need for curfews. Not much crime in Superior, Wis., at least by todays standards. Instructions to the neighborhood kids were simple: You must come in when the streetlights go on. That rule wore thin, but my brother and I obeyed it. However, I took some liberties with the rule about rocks. I tried hurling them at streetlights but never seemed to be able to hit any. We had the run of the neighborhood, keeping a safe distance from the dilapidated house where the old witch lived, exploring the nearby college campus, and yelling like Tarzan for hours. Mom also issued stern warnings or propaganda: Dont go outside without your mittens; youll catch pneumonia. Dont tease your brother; youll catch pneumonia. Dont touch the radiator; youll catch pneumonia. These days, I dont think warning about pneumonia would be considered standard parental practice to modify a childs behavior, but it seemed to work on the Germond boys. I never caught pneumonia just the German measles, mumps, chicken pox and cooties. I suspect that parents have greater challenges in the electronics age, such as making sure their children arent umbilically tied to their cell phones, especially when they are supposed to be studying. Turn that phone off; youll flunk the FCAT. Get off the Internet; youll flunk the FCAT. Dont stay out late; youll flunk the FCAT. Dont drink coffee; youll flunk the FCAT. Dont get a tattoo; youll flunk the FCAT. I didnt have modern accessories, such as cell phones, Kindles, backpacks and laptops, to take to school when I was a kid. That was probably good because I excelled at losing things that I had to carry, such as my report cards. However, I was adept at hanging on to valuable trinkets that lived in my pockets. One of those was a rabbits foot, which was supposed to ward off spells and illnesses, such as pneumonia. I guess it did the trick. I lost interest in rabbits feet about the time the Beatles came along. Dad, in particular, didnt have much use for the Fab Four. Turn down that #$% music, or else! I did, but I did not go quietly into my teenage years despite my parents best attempts to persuade me to accept their advice. You need a haircut. George, Paul, John and Ringo have long hair, and look how much money theyre making. Dad tried his hand at child psychology. What about your hero, Johnny Unitas? He has a crewcut, and hes famous. Dad had a point, but Johnny U. was getting old and teenage girls preferred the Beatles. The rites of puberty took charge of my thought process. We compromised: No crewcut, but hair could grow over my ears. Despite my rebellious tendencies, I made it through college on the seven-year plan. Not sure how I would perform under todays changing and rigorous requirements to enter college. Texting wasnt my forte. Id hate to take the FCAT, especially without a rabbits foot.

Community 15A Leader, June 28, 2012 Obituaries Marjorie Belle Pollock BARGER83, passed away June 16, 2012 in Salem, Va. Marj, and her husband Bruce, moved with their youngest child, David, to Largo, Fla. in 1981. Marjorie earned an art degree from Colby Sawyer College in New Hampshire in 1948 and continued to improve her artistic skills by studying with local artists. She was invited to join Studio 1212, Inc. in 1993. Her extensive travels around the world with her mother provided rich subject matter as she began exhibiting and winning awards for her work. Although her pieces ranged from oil to acrylics to miniatures, she grew to prefer working in pastels and pencils. In 2001, Marj received a diagnosis of Alzheimers disease and they moved to Virginia two years later to be near family. As the fog of dementia slowly blanketed Marjs memories, she remained a cheerful, pleasant and loving person. She is sadly missed by all who knew her. She is predeceased by her parents, Walter and Marjorie Pollock, her brother, Kenneth Pollock and husband, Bruce. She is survived by her children, Betsey Barger of Roanoke, Va.; Carol Buriak and husband, Jim, of Salem, Va.; Bruce Barger and wife, Kelly, of Johnstown, Pa.; David Barger and wife, Kinbly, of St. Augustine, Fla. and grandchildren, Bruce, Jonathan and David Barger, and Jim and Laura Buriak. Private funeral arrangements have been made in Virginia by the family. Contributions can be made to the Marjorie Pollock Barger Memorial Fund found at: alz.org. to benefit the Alzheimers Association.

Tickets range from $49.50 to $125. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. The legendary band Boston returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall with Tom Scholz, seasoned Stryper frontman Michael Sweet, Tommy DeCarlo and musical veterans Jeff Neal, Kimberley Dahme, Gary Pihl. This will be Bostons first concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall since their sold-out show in August 2008. Many remember where they were when they first heard More Than a Feeling or Hitch a Ride on the radio in 1976. Bostons self-titled first album has sold more than 17 million copies in the United States alone, along with their second album, Dont Look Back, in 1978, which has sold more than 7 million copies in the United States. Amanda from Third Stage in 1986 shot to the top of the charts and held a record-breaking stay at No. 1, in spite of being the only hit single that year not accompanied by a music video. With more than 31 million albums sold worldwide, hits like Peace of Mind, Smokin and Rock & Roll Band are still as ubiquitous on rock and roll radio as they were when they were new. Eric Johnson, Saturday, June 30, 8 p.m., at the Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $35. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Johnson is touring in support of his new album Up Close. Johnson will be covering a lot of territory this summer with band members Chris Maresh on bass guitar and Wayne Salzmann on drums with the initial shows scheduled in Florida prior to a highly anticipated tour of Europe. On his return to the United States he will play the legendary Guitar Town Festival in Colorado and the L.A. Guitar Festival. Johnson has long been considered one of rocks most talented six-string players, as evidenced by his platinum-certified 1990 release, Ah Via Musicom, its hit single Cliffs of Dover as well as a Grammy Award win for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1991. Tommy Castro and The Painkillers, Saturday, June 30, 8 p.m., at Skippers Smokehouse, 910 Skipper Road, Tampa. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Visit www.skipperssmoke house.com. Blues/roots artist Tommy Castro and The Painkillers will perform at Skippers Smokehouse. The band will be performing songs from Castros Blues Music Award-winning Alligator Records debut, Hard Believer. In 2010, Castro won four Blues Music Awards including, for the second time in his career, the coveted B.B. King Entertainer of the Year Award (the very highest award a blues performer can receive), and, for his whole group, Band Of The Year. Tommy Castro and The Painkillers lineup includes bassist Randy McDonald, drummer Byron Cage and new member, keyboardist James Pace. Kevin Pollak, Saturday, July 28, 9 p.m., at The Club at Treasure Island, 400 Treasure Island Causeway, Treasure Island. Doors open at 8 p.m. Preferred seating is given to club members. Seats are limited. Tickets start at $35. Call 888-695-0888 or visit www.theclubti.com. Pollak has dazzled audiences as a comedian, an impressionist, a dramatic actor, a writer, a producer, a director and a talk-show host. Pollak will return to his comedy roots for one-night-only in Tampa Bays intimate Treasure Island concert venue. Pollak started performing stand-up comedy at age 10 and was an accomplished touring professional by age 20. In 1989, he earned his first dramatic role in Barry Levinsons Avalon, but it was Pollaks role in Rob Reiners A Few Good Men opposite Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore that proved his ability to hold his own with Hollywood heavy weights. Pollak was named by Comedy Central as one of the Top 100 Comedians of All Time. Ringo Starr and his 13th All Starr Band, Sunday, July 1, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets range from $56 to $153. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. This will be Starrs fourth appearance at Ruth Eckerd Hall all three previous dates sold out. New to the All Starrs are Steve Lukather (Toto) and Gregg Rolie (Santana and Journey) who will join All Starr alumni Richard Page, Todd Rundgren, Mark Rivera and Gregg Bissonette. The tour is being produced by Dave Hart and as always fans can expect to hear a jukebox worth of hits including Starrs own classics such as It Dont Come Easy, Photograph, Little Help From My Friends, Yellow Submarine and Wings, from Starrs just released 17th solo record, Ringo 2012 (Hip-O/Ume). Among the other songs that may make the set list are All Starr member hits such as Rosanna, Broken Wings, Hello Its Me and Black Magic Woman. Top ve diversions Top ve diversions

Visually, the film follows Pixars long tradition of exceptional CGI animation, delivering a feisty barrage of action sequences punctuated by gorgeous highland scenery. Disney/Pixars Brave tells the tale of teenage princess Merida, daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor of Scotland. The queen grooms Merida for betrothal while Merida dreams of ignoring long-honored customs and shaping her own destiny. When the times comes for the unruly lords of the land to sponsor their heirs in a competition for Meridas hand in marriage, the princess takes a stand against tradition and her mothers aspirations. In many ways, Brave is more Disney than Pixar. With the release of Disney/ Pixars Brave, the studio continues to trend away from the damsel-in-distress motif by promoting strong female protagonists. The evolution began with the 2009 Disney theatrical animated feature The Princess and the Frog, which featured Tiana, a female lead with a neurotically strong work ethic, and Prince Naveen, a playboy prince estranged from his royal family lacking any real sense of responsibility. Then, in 2010s Tangled, Rapunzel is rescued by the less-than-perfect male lead Flynn Rider, but the princess reciprocates by repeatedly saving Flynn and, ultimately, inspiring him to become noble to the point of self-sacrifice. But Brave improves further upon the theme, setting up Merida as the single lead protagonist of the story. Her princely prospects play only a minimal part in the plot and are depicted as dim-witted, impotent and unintelligible. Regrettably, the story occasionally borrows from classic Disney devices to propel the plot. Merida, desperate to circumvent a compulsory engagement, turns to a witch as a means to alter her fate. The act somehow diminishes the characters inner strength, making her seem prone to irrational decisions when under duress. The silver lining to this black cloud is that the witch is not the usual Disney crone she is fickle and flighty and, in her own way, seems to be driven by good intentions. Meridas deal with the witch not only changes her destiny but also has wide-reaching repercussions. The key component is a transformation that is a bit too reminiscent of Disneys 2003 animated film Brother Bear. Merida must work to undo this beastly curse involving her mother. Again, while the plot device is clich, what springs from it is innovative: It isnt often that Disney spends so much time exploring mother-daughter relationships in these types of films. The ensemble voice cast helpsMovie reviewBrave offers charming fairy tale sans Prince Charming Brave succeed as both humorous comedy and a thrilling fantasy-adventure. Kelly Macdonald provides the voice of Merida. It is difficult to imagine anyone other than Billy Connolly voicing King Fergus. Queen Elinor is voiced by Emma Thompson. Other voice actors include Kevin McKidd (Lord MacGuffin), Craig Ferguson (Lord Macintosh), Robbie Coltrane (Lord Dingwall) and Julie Walters (the witch). Judging Brave alongside other Pixar films, it meets expectations in that it is spectacularly animated. Still, it falls short of the overall enchantment of Pixar classics it lacks the heart of Finding Nemo and Monsters, Inc. and it doesnt quite achieve the feverish pacing of The Incredibles and Toy Story. As a Disney film, Brave is innovative and enterprising. A strong, self-reliant heroine is long overdue, and Merida fits the bill flawlessly. Even with its minor faults, Brave is a gutsy and thoroughly entertaining addition to the Disney/Pixar canon.

Below, from left, Queen Elinor, King Fergus and Merida and the triplets, Harris, Hubert and Hamish, sit in the throne room. Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe
