See the three-story indoor playground and more June 2.VIEWPOINTSBob DriverBeware of Beneficent Delusional Wackery. Page 10A. Highland Recreation Center reopensLargo officials invite public to tour innovative 40,000-square-foot facility By JULIANA A. TORRESLARG0 The much anticipated Highland Recreation Center complete with an interactive game room, fitness facility, indoor and outdoor basketball courts and a three-story indoor playground will open for tours on Sunday, June 2, noon to 5 p.m. Krista Pincince, the centers recreation program manager, said the updated center will become as much of a draw for the city as the popular Largo Central Park. The 40,000-square-foot facility at 400 Highland Ave. offers a unique array of recreation options. I dont think theres anything like it in the Tampa Bay area, let alone Pinellas County. I think it will definitely be a destination for people from several areas, Pincince said. The city has been developing and building the project for about a decade. Its total cost, including the site work, construction, permitting, furniture and furnishings, is $17.15 million, Pincince said. The facility now boasts the largest municipal slide in the county, the focal point of the PlayWorld playground. A double gymnasium includes a lofted indoor walking track along its perimeter. A traditional fitness center features several types of cardiovascular equipment and strength machines. But the city also will encourage active lifestyles with unique equipment in the Exerplay Game Room. The room will boast a Lightspace wall and floor, an Express Bike, a Makoto Arena 3 Kick, Konami Dance and Xbox Kinect gaming system. Exerplay will be available for birthday parties, along with the facilitys party rooms. Highland also will offer a number of games and equipment that can be checked out from the PlayZone including air hockey, a basketball shoot, foosball, bubble hockey, bowling balls, bumper pool and skeeball. Its a destination for all ages. Theres something to do for little tiny preschoolers all the way up to seniors, Pincince said. Families can come together. Highland Rec will join the rest of the city and open for summer camps on June 10. The new facility will offer seven summer sports camps and eight specialty camps such as Barbie Camp, Start Your Engines Camp, Volleyball, Basketball and Indoor Hockey Camp. Along with camps, Highland will open for an expanded number of classes for all ages. A modern feelThe difference between the old Highland Recreation building and the new one is night and day, said Pincince, whos overseen recreation at the facility for the last nine years. The old building was really pretty much just a metal building, she said. By contrast, she described the new building as an open, spacious and modern building. The environment already has had a positive effect on city staff, who have had to deal with a lot of changes in the construction and recent transition between the two buildings, Pincince said. The staff has been amazing through the whole process, she said. Just seeing it all come together, I think it raises the whole morale across the board. Anticipation for the opening of the new facility has been growing as its moved from design to construction to near completion. The fact that its a reality and were actually in there setting it up every day its more and more exciting, Pincince said. Everyone is ready for it to be open.An ongoing projectThe June 2 grand opening celebrates the completion of phase two of the Highland project. Dur ing the first phase, the city demolished the By SHANNON COLLINSLARGO The husband of a Largo woman knows how an explosion, crash, gunshot, sickness or emotional trauma can push a military service member to a place of unfamiliarity the sidelines. And through the healing process, Paralympic sports give many survivors the chance to prove anyone can overcome disability. Army veteran Jimmy Green, husband of Margarita Green of Largo, competed for the Army team during the 2013 Warrior Games at the U.S. Olympic Training Center and at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., May 11-17. Throughout the seven-day event, wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans from the Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard, as well as some from Special Operations Command, and a team from the British military competed. Track and field, shooting, swimming, cycling, archery, wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball made up the events. Green competed for the gold in field and wheelchair basketball. He was excited to compete. I am extremely pleased and honored to have made the team, said Green. I feel great about being here as a soldier. I feel like Im back in the Army again. The Army is going to win the cup this year. Green is a lifelong athlete and veteran of adaptive sports competitions. He plays for the Orlando Magic Wheels and holds the 2008 Division III Wheelchair Basketball national title. He and his wife moved to Largo because of their commitment to adaptive sports and for the many programs and opportunities Largo offers. Green said his wife is his biggest supporter. She has been my coach, adviser and motivator throughout my training, he said. Green was injured 26 years ago while serving as a solider, in an off-duty vehicle accident that left him partially paralyzed. The accident ended his Army career. He said the toughest challenge for him was losing his identity as an athlete. His life turned around when he was invited to a new wheelchair basketball team in Louisville, Ky. He realized how much was still possible. As soon as I rolled into that gym, a light came over me, said Green. I realized I could still be an athlete. I picked up wheelchair sports and redefined the term athlete. For the last 24 years, Green has competed in a wide range of sports year-round, such as wheelchair Features Business . . . . . . . . . . .9A Classieds . . . . . . . . .5-7B County . . . . . . . . . . .4-7A Entertainment . . . . . . .1-4,8B Faith & Family . . . . . . . .13A Health & tness . . . . . . . .11A Just for fun . . . . . . . . . .2B Largo . . . . . . . . . . .1-3A Outdoors . . . . . . . . . . .8A Schools . . . . . . . . . . .12A Viewpoints . . . . . . . . . .10A Call 397-5563 For News & Advertising Grammy winner comes to REHPeter Frampton is back on the road with Framptons Guitar Circus.

Rick Scott signed House Bill 7013, aka the Elections Bill, into law May 20, which is good news for Pinellas County, according to Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark. The law, which is effective Jan. 1, adds options for more early voting locations, additional early voting days and hours, and it shortens the length of future ballots. Clark talked about the potential changes when she presented her budget to county commissioners during a budget information workshop May 9. There are a lot of improvements, she said. One improvement involves early voting. The new law allows early voting to increase from eight days to 14 days and from eight hours to 12 hours. Early voting the Sunday before an election is up to the discretion of each countys supervisor of elections. Clark said her budget for fiscal year 2013-2014 includes money for 14 days, 12 hours a day and early voting on the Sunday before. Shell make a final decision about exact time and hours closer to the next election. The new law also gives local elections offices more flexibility for setting up early voting locations. Given this new latitude, supervisors will be able to assess the needs of their local communities, re-evaluate current sites and consider other locations, Clark said in a press release sent out May 3 after the bill passed the state legislature. Clark said May 9 that additional early voting locations had to meet the same criteria as an established polling place a large facility with plenty of parking that has accessibility per the American Disability Act. Currently, there are no early voting sites in Pinellas north regions and the only south location is downtown, which has Not forgottenPhoto by TOM GERMONDThe Florida Fanfare Brass, which has been entertaining in the area since 1991, performs during the Memorial Day ceremony May 27 at Largo Central Park as members of the Largo Police and Fire Honor Guard stand at attention.

4A County Leader, May 30, 2013 existing tennis courts and constructed a new vehicle entrance from Lake Avenue, among other parking, drainage and utility improvements. Phase 2 encompassed the construction of the new recreation building at a slated cost of $13.4 million, according to city documentation. Aside from minimal amounts for improvements paid from the citys sewer fund, the majority of the renovation and construction was paid with Local Option Sales Tax dollars. Phase 3 is still under construction, due to be completed in early September, Pincince said. The final piece of the project will include additional parking, four new tennis courts and a multipurpose field that will connect back to the lake. Pincince said shes looking forward to welcoming the public to view the final results of Highland Recreation Center. It adds to the strong recreation department that we already have, she said. After public tours on June 2, the facility will be open daily starting Monday, June 3. The hours of the different recreation rooms and facilities will vary.

CENTER, from page 1Alimited parking but good access to public transit. Having more options will allow Clark to make better decisions on locations that would best serve local voters. Locations could include libraries, city halls, civic centers and any government-owned senior or community center. It will be interesting to see how voters respond as we go through the election cycles and see what the voters want, she said. Mail ballots are popular with Pinellas County residents. Clark said voters like having drop boxes to return ballots to instead of using the mail. We have a good system in place, she said. The new law adds an improvement for mail ballots, in particular for those who forget to sign their envelope. Anyone who forgets will have until 5 p.m. the day before the election to file an affidavit with his or her signature. Clark said approximately 170 forgot to sign their ballots during the 2012 November election and about 400 failed to sign during the 2008 general election. She explained that ballots without signatures would be posted to the Elections Office website, votepinellas.com. Elections staff will not personally contact voters. We expect that the political parties or candidates will give them a call, Clark said. While Pinellas did not have major problems with long lines at polling places during the November 2012 election, other places around the state reported big issues. The new law limits the length of some ballot summaries for constitutional amendments, which should help. The long ballot contributed to the long lines, Clark said. Other improvements made possible by the new law include the ability to use voter signatures on precinct registers to update records, providing a larger pool of current signatures for the Canvassing Board to use when validating mail ballots. In addition, voters who make out-of-county address changes at the polls will be allowed to use a regular ballot if the county uses electronic poll books as precinct registers. Currently, those voters are required to vote using a provisional ballot. Electronic poll books are on Clarks budget list, which she said would dramatically change the process. Now it takes about two minutes to check in a voter. With an electronic poll book, it would take 35 seconds to one minute, she said. Electronic poll books would streamline check in and allow files to be updated as ballots are cast. We could eliminate 80 percent of calls (from the polling place to the Elections Office) on Election Day if a name is not on the book and be able to update information, she said. Clark is asking for an increased budget for the coming fiscal year, not just for the electronic poll books, which amounts to 37 percent of the increase, but also for additional cost of providing elections. She said for the past six years, the Elections Office had been able to decrease its budget. Moving forward, were asking for a substantial increase, she said. Clark is asking for about $2.2 million more about 13 percent over the current budget of $4.45 million. Clark said her office had experienced an increase in insurance costs. The bill from Verizon is more. The budget includes money to pay the countys Business Technology Services for new computers and battery replacements for optical scanners. The proposed budget also factors in personnel and supply costs to support the next general election, even though it is in the next budget year. ELECTIONS, from page 1A basketball, wheelchair softball, scuba, kayaking and skiing. He said adaptive sports such as the Warrior Games are essential to recovery and regaining that athletic identity. An athlete can find his or herself again through the Warrior Games, said Green. I wanted to compete in the Warrior Games because its a different dynamic than other adaptive sports competitions, and I wanted to compete with my Army team. Green encourages newly wounded warriors who may not feel comfortable to leave their house to take those baby steps and try out for the team camps. Get out there and meet other guys with similar injuries. You can learn from them, he said. Dont allow your injury to define you.Story provided by Joint Hometown News Service. By SUZETTE PORTERThe time to prepare is now. The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season could be extremely active. That was the message from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Climate Prediction Center May 23, as experts delivered the outlook for the season that begins June 1 and runs through Nov. 30. The outlook forecasts an active or extremely active six-month season with a 70 percent chance of 13 to 20 named storms, with seven to 11 strengthening into a hurricane and three to six becoming major hurricanes, category 3, 4 or 5. The seasonal average is 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with the Climate Prediction Center, explained that the predictions are based on a variety of weather patterns. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic Basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, Bell said. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive wind patterns coming from Africa. Kathryn Sullivan, NOAA acting administrator, explained that while the predictions were just that an estimate of what could be the real purpose of the outlook was to encourage families to take time now to prepare. Its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding and tornados often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall, she said. Bell said one of the significant factors with this years forecast is the lack of mitigating factors that would suppress hurricane activity. El Nio is not expected to form this year, he said. All factors point to an active or very active season. Bell also pointed out that NOAAs forecast did not include information about when or where hurricanes might form or make landfall. Historically, 90 percent typically form in August, September and October, but some years that are conducive for an active season, may have storms in June or July, he said. But, weather patterns (for the season) are just now evolving. We cant predict that at this time. Bell explained that the past few years with no major hurricanes making landfall were due to weather patterns, specifically low pressure in the atmosphere that kept hurricanes out to sea. He said high pressure in the years 20032005 brought the storms farther west and the east coast experienced more storms. Its not possible to predict these patterns, he said. He said where a storm might strike and how strong it might be will depend on the weather pattern in place when the hurricane is approaching. The unpredictability of hurricanes makes preparedness before the storm essential. Joseph Nimmich, associate administrator for the Office of Response and Recovery, talked about preparedness and the need for a plan. Its important to know what to do before (the storm arrives), he said. Theres no sense in complacency. The time to prepare is now. Its not uncommon for a hurricane to form before June 1 or after Nov. 30. Nimmich said a plan should include having resources of food, water and shelter to last at least 72 hours. Pinellas County officials advise residents to plan for five days or more, due to the possibility of being cut off from the mainland. Residents should have an evacuation plan and communicate that plan to all family members. Its time to listen and prepare, so you dont become a statistic or find yourself dependent on others, he said. He reminded everyone that local responders would be the first line of response after a storm. FEMA will come in later with food, water and shelter, he said.

A HEALTHY CONCEPT FOR BREAKFAST & LUNCH 53013 By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved a name change for the Criminal Justice Center in Clearwater May 21. The change removes the work criminal, making the new name simply, Pinellas County Justice Center. Chief Judge J. Thomas McGrady requested the change so the name would better represent the proceedings that take place inside. We do a lot of noncriminal activities, adoptions, civil matters, etc., he said. It is more of an image use than anything else. It is just taking a word out. He said the new name, Justice Center, was a better fit. Its just what we try to do there justice, he said. Cost to make the change is estimated at $15,000, which includes new building signs, a monument sign and several street signs that will come from the general fund capital outlayoperating budget. It was timely business, the last meeting before Memorial Day for commissioners to approve a plan from the Department of Health and Human Services to provide memorial tributes to families of fallen soldiers from Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. The recommendation was to include military service members who had been residents of Pinellas or had immediate family members living in the county at the time of the service members death. Staff will confirm that the person died while in the line of duty and was a resident of Pinellas or has family living in the county. Then a memorial proclamation will be prepared to be read at a meeting of the commission. Family members will be contacted in advance to make sure they want to have a proclamation and a time for the reading will be scheduled within 90 days of the death. The presentation of the proclamation will include a presentation of the colors. A copy of the memorial presentation will be presented to the family. In other business, the commission: Approved a non-ad valorem assessment agreement with the property appraiser for surface water management program services. The action does not approve the new tax, but only makes it possible should the measure pass during the June 18 public hearing. Approved two resolutions for projects under the Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund Program. The first applicant could qualify for a refund of up to $2.5 million, which is $12,500 per job for 200 new jobs that pay at least 200 percent of the average annual wage. The second application could quality for a refund of up to $1.2 million, calculated at $6,000 per job for 200 new jobs with pay scales of at least 150 percent of the average annual income.Building renamed Pinellas County Justice Center New signs for Pinellas Countys Justice Center, 14250 49th St. N. in Clearwater, are coming soon. Commissioners approved removing the word criminal from the name May 21.CLEARWATER The method of water treatment utilized by Pinellas County and its wholesale customers will be temporarily modified between May 29 and June 17. This short-term change from chloramine to chlorine disinfection is a routine maintenance measure designed to optimize water quality. Those impacted by this maintenance program include Pinellas County customers as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor and Tarpon Springs. Many communities using chloramine convert back to chlorine for a short period to maintain system water quality. Pinellas County switched to chloramine in 2002 to ensure compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. There are no major indications of significant bacteriological contamination problems and this disinfection program is designed to maintain distribution system water quality and minimize the potential for any future problem. The water will continue to meet federal and state standards for safe drinking water. Customers may notice a slight difference in taste and/or odor of the water during this temporary change in treatment. Conditions experienced by water customers will be identical to the more than 50 years prior to 2002 when chlorine was used as the primary disinfectant in the water.

After months and in some cases, years, children and parents were reunited May 17 after being separated by the foster care system. The difference between the parents holding their children that day and the parents they were when their children were taken away was immense to those who knew them back then. The families gathered for a reunification ceremony at the Pinellas County Justice Center in Clearwater.The darkness before the lightGina Ullio, 30, of St. Petersburg endured a childhood of abuse, and by the time she hit her 20s, she was exhausted. She didnt want to feel anymore. Ullio had never done real drugs, but when someone introduced her to prescription pain pills such as Roxycodone, they made her feel numb and finally let her not feel any pain. I was overwhelmed by things, and then someone introduced me to pills and I thought, Okay, Im numb I dont want to laugh, I dont want to cry, Ullio said. I was just chilling. But little did I know, it was making everything all worse. Its all just a Band-Aid. Band-Aids peel off, and then you need another and another and another, and before you know it, thats your life. Your addiction is your life. For eight years, this was her life as were other abusive and bad relationships. All that began to change when she found out she was pregnant. I actually weaned myself off (of the pills) with Methadone, and that was a couple of weeks and then I was good to go, Ullio said. Which was really hard because I was on the opiates for about eight years. But its one thing to screw my life up. Its another thing to screw up an innocent life thats growing inside me. It wasnt the easiest thing to do, but it was like something clicked in my brain where I felt like I loved her so much, even before she was born, I didnt want to ruin it for her. Ullio was admitted into the PAR Village treatment program after she was caught selling pain medications and was placed on probation. There she gave birth to her daughter, Gianna, who is now 20 months old. Ullio participated in Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous classes while in the program, but no one realized that her deeper problems were depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, nor were there programs there for her to help her deal with these issues, she said. When she relapsed, in an admittedly poor attempt to fix or numb her problems, she was kicked out of the program for violating her parole, and her daughter was removed and placed into foster care with Eckerd Community Alternatives. It was the first time in many years of actually being sober, so when I started feeling things again, I became extremely overwhelmed, and since they werent helping me with what was going on mentally, I kind of just lost it, I guess you could say, Ullio said. (My daughter) ended up in foster care, which was a blessing in disguise because Im still very close to the (foster) family to this day. The (foster) father is my pastor, and they support me. I attend their church every Sunday. Theyre like a second family. Meanwhile, teen mom Tiffany Zell also was struggling. Zell, now 19, of Kenneth City got pregnant with her first child at age 15, gave birth at 16, and gave birth to her second son at age 17. It started out with my partying and drinking and drugs, Zell said. Being rebellious I guess, hanging out with my friends. I was really young so I didnt know the meaning of being a parent. They got removed from me when I was 17. I worked my case plan, everything that they asked me to do, and it took me about two years to complete everything. I kind of lost hope in the process, but thanks to Barry (Greer with the Family Reunification Team,) I got it back. The pain of losing her kids is still raw when she thinks back to that time. Tears sprung to her eyes, and she had to stop to compose herself. It was like the most depressing time of my life, Zell said. It was like, guilt, shame, loneliness, just a dark cloud. Mostly guilt. Her case plan included anger management classes, family counseling, parenting classes, drug classes the first three which she did twice. Zell hadnt been hooked on any particular drugs, she said, but she went through a wild, partying, experimental phase where she tried a bunch of things, from Xanex and other pills to other things. During that time, her mom, Christine, was taking care of her kids, and it took working her case plan to understand what it really means to be a parent. It was a hard process, but all of a sudden, something registered in her head. My son got older during this process, and he began to talk and he told me that he wants to come home, Zell said, choking up with tears. Thats when she knew things had to change.Kids say goodbye to their life of foster care, go homePhoto by ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLFrom left, former foster mom, Shawnon Krimmel of St. Petersburg; Elijah Zell, 1; Tiffany Zell, 19, of Kenneth City; Christine Zell; and Jorden Zell, 3, all sit during the family reunification ceremony on May 17.

It is a long and difficult process, but the goal is to help both the parents and children and work toward the best situation for all involved.Overcoming their obstaclesZell and Ullio have made such wonderful transformations that they were asked to speak at the family reunification celebration on May 17 at the Criminal Justice Center in Clearwater. Ullio said she felt both nervous and excited to finally get her daughter back and that it was an honor to be asked to speak. Initially, in the beginning, I didnt see myself with this kind of outcome, Ullio said. Its kind of a shock, you know. Im still trying to process it all. But at the end of the day, I did what I had to do, which Im still working every day towards my goals, and I have her back with me, so its just awesome. Through working her case plan, Ullio said that she learned how to cope with addiction and depression, learned how to set boundaries and how to handle life in a healthier way. Being a perfectionist, she wanted to do everything just right, which could be stressful, but she made it through the process. She has also learned how to make life different from now on. I learned that there are signs ahead of time, Ullio said of bad relationships. Now that I am in my sobriety and Im clear-minded, I pay attention more. Ive learned again to set boundaries with people. If I dont feel comfortable, I can walk away and thats okay. I dont have to settle and feel like Im stuck. Ive learned that when I do get stressed out and I want to be numb and all that, the coping skills come in and Ill go down to the beach or Ill journal or Ill pick up the phone and call a friend and vent. That helps out a lot. And all that, Ive been 25 months sober now and that has helped me along the way. That and (her daughters) beautiful little face. Ullio said that she has met many women in NA and AA who ask her how shes done it. She tells them that its all possible and that it is all worth it for bettering the life of their children. Ill bluntly come out and say initially I screwed up, but when it comes to a little life that youve created, you go above and beyond to get your child back, Ullio said. If I had to jump through a hoop of fire, I would. I might not be successful, but I would. You set goals, maintain your counseling and your sobriety. Support systems are very important. And just deal with whatever is going on, even if you need someone to lend a hand. Its okay. Zell was overwhelmed with emotion when it was her turn to speak, so she had Greer read her speech for her. Just before I was reunified, I started working with the Family Reunification Team, and as things progressed and I got closer to the point where I was going to get my children back, I got it, her speech read. I realized what parenting is all about. I didnt always agree with what was required of me, but I knew I had to do what it took to get my children back. My mother and I now are starting to get along and communicate much better. Now, Zells friends who have kids are coming to her to ask her how she did it and how they can change. She has also completed her CNA certification and is going on to become a medical technician so she can support her children as well as help others. She has also realized that she wants to work with children in particular, disable children, she said and is well on her way to achieving her goals. Shawnon Krimmel of St. Petersburg, the former foster mom to Zells two boys, Jorden, 3, and Elijah, 1, said she has seen a huge transformation in Zell and she is overjoyed that this day has arrived. Im so happy, Krimmel said. Mom has worked very, very hard. She never gave up. She had a long process and she was young when she started, but shes really grown up and matured, and she is a good parent to her boys. She worked hard. She deserves it. I dont see too many reunifications. It doesnt happen very often, so I am very happy to be on this case from beginning to end and glad to support them and to still have them in our lives. Krimmel has seen a huge change in how Zell and her mother get along and work together now compared to how it was in the beginning. She also said that in the beginning, Zell was young and immature, but she has grown up a lot since then. Shes a responsible adult, she cares about her kids and she works really hard, Krimmel said. Lots of maturity. Zell advises other young moms who are like how she once was to really examine their life and try to change before its too late. They should probably look to see what makes them happy before they lose what really makes them happy, Zell said. If they have children, they should appreciate that and not take it for granted because they could lose them as fast as they had them. And theres nothing that makes you happier than being a parent. Watching your child develop and grow up and trying to say words and trying to do things and the funny things that they say and the sweet things that they say. Tucking them in at night. In Zells mind, becoming a mom saved her life. Id probably be strung out on drugs and just like the people I left behind, Zell said. Theyre strung out on drugs and cant live life without that drug, and theyre partying and theyre basically just rotting away. And Id probably be right there with them.

Early trips are a must for the serious angler. Sunrise is around 6:30 a.m. and that first hour of daylight has made the day more than once lately. Redfish have been good for those inshore anglers capitalizing on the afternoon high tides. Target oyster bars and small creek mouths on the latter stages of the incoming tide, and the first part of the outgoing tide. Live chumming with pilchards, also known as whitebait, has helped to get the fish into a feeding frenzy. Other bait options would be fresh cut ladyfish skipped way back under the overhanging branches. Tarpon are going strong off area beaches as well as the Skyway Bridge and many of the passes in the southern region into Manatee County. Hit the beaches early. As long as the wind stays out of the east these calm conditions will make it perfect for targeting schools of fish as they migrate along our beaches. Set up on the fish quietly with a trolling motor, or wait for the fish to come by. The fish have all been traveling south fairly quickly and not showing much on the surface; the best option for us the past few days, has been to keep fresh baits out while anchored along the swim buoys. Trout fishing has been good along the area beaches. Target near shore reefs and pass jetties. Free-line small whitebait on a 2/0 hook, with a light leader to fool the bigger trout. Most of the trout have been ranging from 15to 17-inches, with plenty of fish over 20 inches mixed in. Until next week get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hot mail.com.

Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wallerstein People and dolphins share a strong social nature. Both species prefer company to solitude. Both have a large brain to keep a large number of others of their kind, called conspecifics, in mind. Theres a term that neatly summarizes this behavior but doesnt mean anything when you first meet it. The term is fissionfusion. Fission means separating. Fusion means joining. At sea, fission-fusion means a dolphin has a big circle of friends and acquaintances. (To those who dont believe animals are capable of friendship, my apologies.) This big circle gives them a dizzying number of social options, something like your social life in high school. Bottlenose dolphin life is like being part of a giant extended family. With dozens of potential schoolmates to choose from, a dolphin never has to be alone, and rarely is. In addition, dolphins travel a lot. This increases their chances of running into many different schoolmates with whom to pass a little time. The upshot is that dolphin groups form and fade in endless combinations of different dolphins. It is this endless forming and fading of social groups that is summed up as fission-fusion. Fission-fusion combinations arent really endless. But there are enough of them to keep the biologist on her toes. There are also the times when dolphins display fission-fusion behavior to the extreme. One lovely May day provided aDolphins recall high school social lifeparticularly zestful example of fission-fusion behavior at its extreme. Without sinking you in the specifics, in just five hours we saw 25 dolphins 56 times in 18 different combinations! Briefly, we saw five sets of bulls 2-5 times each. We saw six mother-calf pairs 1-6 times each. There were three more local ladies and two teens in the mix. With little obvious drama, they meandered around the study area in different combinations that took over 1,200 pictures to document. And I wondered why I was tired when I finished figuring all this out. I thought you might like to know the meaning of a fission-fusion social organization, because you live in one too.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Ruling sensible on term limitsPinellas County Commissioners can breathe a sigh of relief. A recent circuit court ruling prevents a trip back in time to 1996 when voters approved a referendum to add term limits to the countys charter. The late1990s was a very different time in state history, and tensions ran high in political circles. After the 1996 election, Commissioners and Constitutional Officers sued, calling the referendum decision unconstitutional. After years in the courts, the state Supreme Court agreed. Term limits never became part of the charter. In the spring of 2012, a Supreme Court ruling reversed a final decision on the matter made in 2003, meaning term limits could become part of our future. However, according to the circuit court judge, the new ruling doesnt change history. Last summer, soon after the Supreme Court reversed its earlier decision, a small group of very vocal citizens made it clear that in their opinion, the new ruling meant Pinellas had to make a change. They insisted that the county follow the wishes of voters back in 1996. They demanded resignations from Commissioners Karen Seel, John Morroni, Susan Latvala and Ken Welch. They werent very nice. Some went so far as to accuse commissioners of a variety of misdeeds. It is worthy to note that just before the lawsuit by the three citizens was filed, the commissioners had been poised to place a referendum on the November 2012 ballot. Pinellas voters would have been given another chance to decide if term limits were right for this county. The lawsuit put a stop to the possibility of a referendum. Commissioners were forced to let the matter play out in the courts. And now the judge has spoken, and he agreed with the arguments made by commissioners. Thats good news in our opinion. The entire county can breathe a sigh of relief unless the citizens who filed the lawsuit decide to appeal. Then it is back to limbo land. Lets look at what could have been. If the lawsuit filed in 2012 had been won, four of seven commissioners could have been declared ineligible to serve. Then the governor would have appointed new leadership. Several residents had already sent in their rsums. There was even talk that every decision made by the county commission since 1996 would become invalid. Can you imagine the chaos? The thing is every one of those commissioners who would have lost their job if the lawsuit had been won has been re-elected at least once. Voters have had an opportunity to limit their terms by voting against them for years. But, they didnt. Some commissioners even ran unopposed. It seems as if voters had their say, and the majority was happy with things as is. As it stands now, voters will get to continue to decide the fate of the countys elected officials on Election Day. Home rule remains in the hand of Pinellas County citizens and out of the governors control. We think Pinellas should continue to choose its leaders as it has for years by election. As long as our leaders are doing their job, why should they be limited by a rule that has proven ineffective for state leaders? We admit there is value to having new faces on any governing board. Despite the longtime service by four of seven county commissioners, new leaders have served in the remaining three slots, including the two elected in 2012, after the voters decided to limit their predecessors to a single term. All this brings an old saying to mind, if it aint broke, dont fix it. Lets leave well enough alone.LETTERS EDITORIALError in local history should be correctedEditor: Your report on the history of Fort De Soto in the May 9 issue was very well written and illustrated. Suzette Porter should be congratulated. I will preserve a copy of that excellent article to share with my friends and visitors from out of state. One thing that bothered me, however, was the statement Panfilo de Narvaez landed somewhere between St. Pete Beach and Clearwater. Most historians agree that he landed in Boca Ciega Bay, near what is now Park Street in St. Petersburg. One of his crewmen survived an arduous trip to Texas and wrote an accurate history of their voyage when he returned to Spain. I note that the Pinellas County Historic Guide was the source of this incorrect information. Their history of Weedon Island and the native culture in the northern parts of the county is accurate and thorough, but they missed this bit of local history. My fellow members of the Seminole Historical Society continue to try to present the most accurate details of local history land. Hope that this error will be corrected. Robert A. Stanton Seminole Historical SocietyCity shouldnt subsidize new stadiumEditor: The City of Dunedin should not subsidize a new Blue Jays stadium or any other big priced projects. Its political scheming to cutting the citys service levels because our city leaders are using our tax dollars for other projects other than the city services, infrastructure and the welfare of the Dunedins taxpaying citizens. Clearwater, St. Petersburg and the county commission is using the same scheme using bed taxes, so-called $5 park fees, taxes. Promoting a fee/tax for one purpose and using the funds for another is deceptive political scheming. During the regular season, do the Blue Jays complain about riding the buses between the hotels and the airports and stadiums of other teams cities? These private sports corporations feel the citizen taxpayers should provide them with everything. Its sports corporate welfare. If the teams can pay their players such high salaries, they can pay for their own multimillion-dollar stadiums. The tax-paying citizens of Dunedin should not be subsidizing private sports corporations corporate welfare. What a lame reasoning. Why is the city of Dunedin mandating the citizens pay for a stadium for the Blue Jays? Tax dollars are not for corporations. Walter Gay Dunedin New ailments, possible remediesIf youre feeling good, youre probably misinformed. If you have no serious aches, pains or other physical/mental complaints from day to day, you may be suffering from Beneficent Delusional Wackery (BFW). This is an affliction that strikes people who do not watch, read or listen to the latest medical advertising. Because they are not up to date about the hundreds of new health threats sweeping the land, these benighted folks lead happy lives.But some of us know better. It is the duty of us watchdogs to reach out to BFW victims so that they may wake up and pay attention to todays medical and drug advertisements. Following is a sampling of the warnings and alarms that are sweeping through TV, Web, radio and print outlets. How many of them apply to you? TRANSMARGINAL MESH OUTBREAKS. These occur when any form of surgical mesh, stitching or fencing begins to rust or break loose and wander all over a patients duodenum or colligular rectus. If this has happened to you, you may be entitled to huge amounts of compensation. You should immediately call the Chicago law firm of Hookim and Screwm. BOJANGLES. As a child, did you ever suffer from measles, mumps, whooping cough, skinned knees, earache or hives? If so, then the viruses from these ailments are still within you, and you are in grave danger of developing the horrors of bojangles. This affliction causes painful, jagged rashes to appear across the victims back. These are accompanied by an obsessive urge to imitate the footwork of renowned tap dancer Bill Bojangles Robinson. If you live anywhere between Boston and San Diego, you may want to try a vaccine that has been designed to prevent bojangles. It costs $660 for each injection and does not guarantee full immunity. But few things in life do, right? MAY-VILIFY is a new drug used to treat depression. But only if the anti-depressant medicine youre already taking doesnt seem to work any more. Ask your doctor about MayVilify. He will surely have heard about it. In fact, his latest vacation to the Bahamas may have been paid for by the manufacturers of May-Vilify. The name of this drug comes from its possible side effects. They include deeper depression, suicidal thoughts and the urge to serenade small dogs. AMBER MOUTH. The toothpaste industry has discovered something that had gone unnoticed for the previous 8,000 years. Namely, if your teeth are not getting whiter each day, then theyre getting yellower. Theres no middle ground. Check it out for yourself. Spend half an hour with a mirror, squinting to see the traces of this condition in your own mouth. Youre sure to discover something alarming, even if its only a couple of strands of antique spinach. In todays demanding world, its almost impossible to find a job, a sex partner or even a bridge partner unless your blinding-white smile sets off burglar alarms within a six-block radius. The solution: Holy Molars, the new spiritual-based antidote to amber mouth. This whitening mouthwashs main ingredient is water from the springs of the Church of Latter Day Druids, based in Kotch, Tex. STOMATOGURGLIA. Throughout our land are many thousands of carpenters, roofers, warehouse and shipyard workers, plasterers and lumberyard employees who are at risk of stomatogurglia and do not know it. These men and women have spent years working with wood cut from loblolly pines. They have inhaled minuscule loblolly dust fragments that lie dormant in the victims bodies for years. Then one evening when a victim is in a music hall enjoying a performance of Puccinis La Boheme, the victims stomach and upper G.I. region will erupt in a raucous gurgling that drowns out the music and singing. Outraged at the interruption, audience members may attack the stomatogurglia sufferer. There is no known remedy for this mysterious affliction except to sue all known manufacturers of loblolly pine products. The leading firm in this legal specialty is Jaime Jockaloff & Associates, whose famous Six Months slogan promises to begin action within half a year of a victims first contact with the firm. FEDERAL DEFICIT ATTENTION DISORDER (FDAD). Unlike the more common Attention Deficit Disorder (in which persons cannot focus on a topic for more than a few seconds), FDAD causes a victim to worry for hours about the U.S. budget deficit and what may occur if our government finally goes flat broke. This ailment is usually found in people of above-average intelligence and limited financial resources. There is no legal remedy for FDAD. Shooting members of Congress has been suggested, but this is wrong. Temporary relief can be obtained by indulging in large quantities of alcohol and sex. Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send him an email at tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Dont blame teachers; help themBill Gates is finally admitting what people who actually work in schools have been saying for the past 10 years. Trying to hastily evaluate teachers by over-reliance on standardized test results is a fools errand. Many of the most important things counselors, social workers and many teachers do (think art, music, drama, PE) for our kids cannot be measured by standardized tests. Yet, current law requires that 50 percent of their evaluation, which is now tied to possible termination, should rely on them. Before you know it, PE teachers will be balking when an overweight child (who might not pass the physical fitness test) is put into their class, and AP Physics teachers will want to teach only those students who get top test scores. Please, schools dont need the added distraction of pitting teachers against each other (my test is harder than your test) or, more tragically, having them vie for the best and brightest students to help them keep their jobs. Their job is to educate every kid who walks in the door, rich or poor, fat or skinny, gifted or not. You will hear that the value-added scores will take care of that, but with all the variability in teaching assignments, expense of scoring and lack of valid assessments, its just not going to happen. When test scores become the most valued indicator of what makes a good school, then teachers and administrators will spend all of their time focusing on that. Our children are the real losers. If you are the parent of a high-school student in Florida, you received a notice that looks something like this: Upcoming testing schedule: April 8: FCAT Math retakes April 9-10: FCAT Reading retakes April 15-16: FCAT 10th graders April 22-23: FCAT 9th graders April 29: U.S. history EOC (end-of-course exam) May 1-2: PERT for Seniors May 6: Biology EOC May 13: Algebra EOC May 20: Geometry EOC This does not include required practice tests, make-up dates or Advanced Placement tests. Think about the logistics for a minute. For each of these tests, students have to be pulled out of their classes and go to the media center or computer lab (and kick out the students who were in there learning) to take the tests. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. The tests above cover only about 20 percent of the classes taught in a typical high school. This is why so many Florida teachers at all grade levels had to use scores of kids or subjects they didnt teach to have a test score assigned to them to meet the law. As soon as all the EOCs are developed for the 400 high-school course offerings that arent included above, there will not be a moment during the last three months of school when some type of high stakes/high security test is being administered at your childs school. Not one of these tests is necessary for a student to graduate; theyre used only to satisfy this misguided law to tie teachers pay to standardized tests. Ah, remember the good old days when teachers could give and grade their own final exams and students could see what they missed? Do the folks who are dreaming these laws up have any idea of the disruption and wasted learning time that results? Almost every teacher I know wants to do a good job. After much research, we know which teacher practices are the most effective. The challenge is to help weaker teachers learn to incorporate them. This can come about only in a coaching and collaborative approach. We dont need an outof-control bulldozer to weed the garden. School districts in collaboration with teachers can do this. Heres what I recommend we get started with: School boards, superintendents and principals: Roll up your sleeves and do what it takes to help the teachers who need it, get rid of the ones who cant or dont want to do a good job and give tons of support to the ones who are in there doing a good job every day. Teachers unions: Fight for teachers rights, but dont protect the few bad apples. The majority of teachers will thank you. Parents: Get involved with your school and your child. Ask how you can help. Speak up if your childs teacher is not doing a good job. Dont forget to thank them when they do! Legislature: Quit thinking you know how to best evaluate teachers. You dont. Back off. Citizens: Make funding our schools, pre-K20, your top priority. Boost salaries and working conditions so principals can attract and hire the best qualified teachers in the country. Recognize that all schools are not created equal, and give the most support to schools and teachers who are serving our neediest families. Dont blame them help them.Rosanne Wood is the president of Reform Works Inc. and a retired principal of SAIL High School in Tallahassee. Contact her at rosanne wood@gmail.com.

During the 1970s, a new brand of pop music was born, one that was steeped in African and African American styles particularly jazz and R&B but appealed to a broader cross section of the listening public. As founder and leader of the band Earth, Wind & Fire, Maurice White not only embraced but also helped bring about this evolution of pop, which bridged the gap that has often separated the musical tastes of black and white America. It certainly was successful, as EWF combined high-caliber musicianship, wide-ranging musical genre eclecticism, and s multicultural spiritualism to produce numerous hit singles such as Shining Star and the classic ballad Reasons. The groups multi-platinum greatest hits set The Best Of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. I included a cover of The Beatles Got To Get You Into My Life that went to No. 1 R&B and No. 9 pop in summer 1978. The group performed the song in the 1978 Bee Gees/Peter Frampton movie Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Another single, September, made it to No. 1 on the R&B charts and No. 8 on the pop charts. The multi-platinum album I AM hit No. 3 on the pop charts in the summer of 1979 on the strength of the million-selling single Boogie Wonderland and the phenomenal ballad After The Love Has Gone, written by David Foster, Jay Graydon and Bill Champlin, which stayed at No. 2 on the R&B/pop charts for two weeks. In 2000, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Founding members Philip Bailey, Verdine White and Ralph Johnson continue to tour with the legendary band performing at sold-out shows around the world.
