Largo High Schools 99th class graduates Commission backs job incentiveNew program for West Bay Drive district gains unanimous approval By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLLARGO This Fathers Day will be particularly special for one Largo single dad. This year, Shawn Brumadge, 30, has his daughter, Ianadene, 3, back and under his full custody. In May, Brumadge was one of the families invited to Eckerd Community Alternatives reunification ceremony that celebrated parents getting their kids back from foster care after having successfully completed their case plans. Not only has Brumadge overcome numerous obstacles in getting his daughter under his care, he has also helped his daughter go from what some called a vegetable to a responsive, functioning little girl. Born at only 24 weeks, Ianadene and her twin brother were very sick infants. She was born at 1.2 pounds and her brother was 1.1 pounds, Brumadge said. At the time, Brumadge was in New Orleans trying to help his godmother, but he called the hospital every day to check to see how they were doing. One day, that phone call was different. This time, it was How soon can you get here? Brumadge said. They said my son wasnt doing well and didnt have much time left and I had to get there as soon as possible. So I called my mother and we got money together so I could come back. He talked with his mother, Essie Walton, to arrange for her to be there at the hospital so that in case he couldnt make it in time, at least someone from his side would be there with his son. However, there was an altercation at the hospital between the two families, and he said that the babies mother had gotten a travel hold put on him by saying things like he was going to come there to harm her or that he was bringing drugs and guns to Florida from New Orleans, all of which he says is not true. Therefore he wasnt allowed on a plane and was having a hard time getting onto a bus. Finally I said, Im getting on this bus. You can call whoever youd like, but Im getting on this bus, Brumadge said. I said, My child is on his last breath. Im going home. I ended up giving the phone to him and he got a hold of my sister who put the doctor on and said, Look, he needs to come home, and they apologized and finally let me on the bus. But then, the bus driver ended up falling asleep and swerved from lane to lane into the ditch. This was approximately the same time my son died. So I dont know if it was God letting me know that my son was gone or whatever the case may be. He was barred from his sons funeral, which broke Brumadges heart, and his ex wouldnt let him see the surviving twin, Ianadene, he said. Brumadge was so frustrated and discouraged that he hibernated for a little while. Ianadene was in foster care, and the case had been open for a while without action on the mothers part to work the case plan. The parents were called in for mediation. We were mediating because the parents were not working their case plan, Cleaning up LargoLargo Commissioners and residents cleaned up Rosery Road June 9, in an effort to organize trash pickup days along various Largo city streets. .

TORRESLARGO Despite commissioners initial opposition to a job creation incentive, the city of Largos economic development staff will implement all four of the proposed incentives designed to revitalize the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment District. Teresa Brydon, economic development manager, provided examples of similar job creation incentive programs created in other communities, as Largo commissioners requested when the incentive program was first brought for their review in January. During the June 11 workshop, she again emphasized the advantage of awarding businesses for bringing high-paying jobs within targeted industries to the downtown area. When you talk about the incentive program, its specifically looking at ways to help lower the cost to come in and redevelop in our downtown, she said. Often the cost of taking down an existing building at a cost of $6,000 or $10,000 can discourage businesses from considering the downtown area, Brydon said. Thats a lot of money when youre talking about going into that location versus going down the street where theres a vacant parcel, she said. Under the program, new jobs would have to pay at 115 percent of the countys annual average wage and fall within specified industries: communications and information technology, life science, business or financial services, clean energy, emerging technologies, aviation or aerospace and corporate headquarters. The grant would be paid to the business over five years and be capped at $10,000 per See INCENTIVE, page 3A By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO In many ways, the 99th class of Largo High School is the schools very best group of graduates. Aside from various awards, the 303 graduates of the class of 2013 earned more than $1.2 million in scholarships for their next level of education, Principal Brad Finkbiner told their friends and family gathered at Bright House Field for the graduation ceremony June 7. Furthermore, the class was integral to the high school achieving its highest state rating this year. When we first arrived at Largo High, it was a D school and since we started, it has increased all the way up to an A, making us the best class yet, Valedictorian Steven Higginbotham reminded his fellow graduates. Were all winners today, and our school colors prove it. In her speech, Salutatorian Adriana Wilson reminded her class of the times when we thought that we would not make it and the obstacles they conquered. I would like to say to the class of 2013, we finally made it, she said. No matter where we stand and no matter where we fall, no one is going to stop us. The senior class chose physical education teacher Jeremy Frioud to speak as their faculty representative. Frioud urged the class to remain humble, treat everyone as a fellow brother or sister and live passionately. Attack life as hard as you can. Love as much as you can. Live as much as you can. Do as much as you can, and do it with passion, he said.

The other three programs include an early sign replacement grant, an urban infill housing grant and new commercial space grant. Commissioners agreed to set aside $80,000 from the redevelopment districts tax increment financing fund for all four programs. Commissioner Robert Murray, who initially questioned the job incentive program, questioned whether that small amount could be better spent elsewhere. Brydon said she didnt think the city would be able to grant funds at the maximum amounts allowed, at least while the program was first starting. But she said she did think businesses would be eager to apply for the funds. The proposed program also would establish a community redevelopment agency advisory committee to oversee the allotment of incentives and make recommendations to the commission. The Largo Commission has to officially approve all four incentive programs within an ordinance at an upcoming meeting. The plans also must be reviewed by Pinellas County. City staff hopes to have the program in place by October 2013.Improving customer serviceAlso during the June 11 workshop, commissioners heard results from a business process analysis study, requested last year and designed to create a more business-friendly environment in the citys community development department. In particular, the study focused on three divisions: building, planning and engineering. The citys consultant for the study, Management Partners, interviewed staff as well as local businesses and community stakeholders to find out how best to improve the departments structure and culture to create better customer service. Amy Paul of Management Partners told commissioners that they should be pleased with the positive things so many of the citys customers had to say about Largo, as well as the high ratings the city received. You should also feel good that people, even if they didnt feel that you were the most business-friendly city in Pinellas County, they recognized that you were trying to get there, she said. The processes in the building, engineering and planning divisions were quite sound, she said. However, the software the city used was outdated and was keeping the city from providing the best service. Customers expect things that your technology just cant give them, Paul said. Efficiency is being wasted because people must call in and talk to a live person instead of checking (for updates) themselves. The city is scheduled to replace and upgrade the software curently in use. Paul also commended the staff for their enthusiasm. They were very excited about the possibility of being able to serve customers better. They are very hungry for that, she said. Management Partners provided the department with list of specific recommendations.ClarificationThe brief, City attorney fees increased, which ran in the June 6 edition of the Largo Leader, should have stated that the fees were increased to the final hourly rates of $180 for attorneys, $115 for paralegals and $120 for law clerks.

4A Largo Leader, June 13, 2013 LARGOHIGHSCHOOLCLASSOF2013 said Susan Hixon, senior case manager with Directions for Living through Eckerd Community Alternatives. She was the case manager for their case. You go to mediation and you kind of figure out where the case is heading. Is the case heading towards adoption? Is the case heading towards reunification? And we find out where the parents are at and what they want to do. Mom didnt show up, but dad did and said, Im here. I want my child. Hixon said that when Brumadge showed up for mediation, she learned that the reason he had not seen his child or had been active in her life was because the mom wouldnt let him, not because he didnt want to. After his first visit with her, he called me and said, I lay eyes on her and it changed everything. He said, I knew at that moment that I needed to do whatever I needed to do to get her back with me, Hixon said. So his motivation to work and complete his case plan was her. At the time, she was definitely severely disabled. She couldnt walk, she was drinking out of a bottle, she wasnt eating table food, and he said to me, I know I can do better for her. I know that I can help her to walk and I can get her to eat table food and I can get her mainstreamed. Since she was born so premature, Ianadene has had major problems her entire life. When she was born, she had a sac on the back of her head that she needed surgery to remove. She doesnt feel pain like other people, so they have to be careful she doesnt hurt herself because she wont react if she has. She was on numerous medications and in therapies, but she basically acted like an infant, even at age 3 drinking from a bottle and eating baby food, not walking, not talking or able to communicate at all. She would also have intense fits, for which she took medications. When I got her, she was labeled like a vegetable and a lot of people that we had to interact with had never met her, never seen her, so theyd just go by the paperwork, Brumadge said, and assume that she couldnt do more. When I started my case plan, they told me basically shed have to have 24 hour care, and its going to be hard to work or take care of the kids. Brumadge has three other kids, and he pays child support for them and therefore has to work full-time at least one or two jobs at once. His mother was going on disability for her diabetes and needed surgery, so the two of them teamed up to live together and figure out how they would cooperate and raise Ianadene together. He helped her out, caring for her when she needed him, and she helped him out with Ianadene. He was working several jobs, including a telemarketing job that paid the bills, but he had a hard time getting the necessary time off of work when he needed to make a drop for his drug program or go to his daughters doctors visits and other important tasks to successfully complete his case plan. He had to put his daughter first, so he left that position and opened a barbershop that allowed him to be more flexible with his time. Now, he still works two jobs in security that allows him to be secure financially and also get to spend time with his children. At first, Ianadene didnt know Brumadge and had kind of an attitude toward him, he said, but he kept trying and kept seeing her, and eventually his day visits turned into overnight visits and then getting her for more and more days. All the while, he was convinced that she has more potential in her and was determined to pull it out of her. As he worked his part of the case plan going to Operation PAR for drug classes, taking parenting and other classes he also worked with Ianadene on her therapy, pushing her more than she had been pushed before. They were saying that she cant be in public, that we cant take her to grocery stores or all of them because she acts out or she has this fear of people, Brumadge said. And I explained, I cant keep her locked up in the house like a monster. So I started out small at the (Pinellas Park Wagon Wheel) Flea Market. Theres a lot of people there. People arent really paying attention there and theres a lot of kids running and youre outside. So if she started to yell, I didnt have to try to find an exit. We were already outside. She did just fine at the market, he said. Sometimes she would reach out to grab people, but he was happy because it showed that she isnt afraid of people. Then he tried taking her to a playground. She hated the swings, so they tried other things. He got the stroller to take her to the mall or out to dinner to see how she would react. As long as me or my mother was there, she was fine, Brumadge said. So I explained to my mom, its not that she has episodes or is afraid of people, its that if shes uncomfortable. Likewise, she used to have major meltdowns every time she had a doctors appointment. When she was still in foster care, Brumadge was allowed to go along to the appointments, but for a while he was not to come inside the examining room so that Ianadene would not associate Brumadge with negative doctors visits. Sometimes he would have to go in, though, to help calm her down when she would have a fit. I would go in there and talk to her and pat her on the back, telling her its going to be okay, so she eventually started getting comfortable with people, Brumadge said. After working with her more to control her tantrums, the doctor couldnt even believe she was the same little girl when he took her back for another appointment, he said. When Ianadene would act up and have tantrums, rather than punishing her, yelling at her or trying to medicate her, Brumadge stayed calm and made her do her walking therapy instead. Hed get her up and get her to practice walking and walk and walk and walk. After a while, she would get so tired that she would quietly go down for a nap, all the while getting stronger. Within a few months, he had her walking. One of Brumadges other goals was to get her eating regular table food instead of baby food and bottles. She was drinking PediaSure that was all she was drinking, Brumadge said. I said, Mom, I cant have her only drinking PediaSure. Shes 3. And whos going to walk around with a bottle? So we are going to try foods. For a while, any time they tried to offer her some other food to eat, she would just smell it then turn her head away. But then, one day was different. One time we were eating Chinese food and I was just like Mmm, so good, so good, and she just kept getting closer and closer, and I kept moving my plate over (away from her) and she kept getting closer, Brumadge said. I moved it over again then said, Do you want some? and she just looked at me. So I just put a little piece on her lips and she just licked her lips and when she started smacking, I said, Oh yes, mom, shes ready, He gave her a plate of his shrimp fried rice and she ate it all up. For the next few days, he kept feeding her more shrimp fried rice because he knows that you have to introduce new foods slowly and not change it up so he could watch for any potential allergic reactions. He used a similar tactic to get her to drink other substances other than PediaSure, which was the only liquid she wanted to drink for a long time. He filled a cup with different liquids and played up how yummy he thought they were, acting a little possessive with them that they were too yummy to want to share. Eventually that got her attention and he found a liquid that she enjoyed tea. Now she can feed herself and eats and drinks all kinds of regular food. He also taught her that if she is hungry, she should walk to the refrigerator and put her hand on it to communicate her needs. Just as patiently, Brumadge got his daughter potty trained. She is smarter than many people think, he said. But she will only do as much as she is made to do. If she can get away with doing less, then she is going to take advantage of it. She now knows that she is safe with her dad and that he loves her, but he is going to stick to it until she does what she is supposed to, so she behaves around him. He also learned that routines are important. Once he got her into a strict routine, she knew what was coming so she calmed down, behaved and fell into the routine, whether it was going potty or getting dressed and undressed. This whole case has been an inspiration for Hixon. He came into his staffing and he was excited. He inspired us, Hixon said. He came in and talked about what hes learned through his drug classes, how he was going to continue on the path that he was on and being able to provide for the child. When Id go to the house to visit, hed say, Look at her. Shes walking now. Look at her, shes talking now. Shes on table food. When Hixon came over for home visits, she used to go over and pick up Ianadene because she loved her too, she said, but then Brumadge said, no, she had to wait until Ianadene asked if it was okay to be picked up. So I had to sit and wait for her to come up who couldnt even speak before he had her and she could repeat words that she could say. And shed say, Please in your lap. I mean, for me, this case is inspirational, Hixon said. He literally has her walking, he has her talking, she can sing, she can play with toys, shes working on potty training, she can walk all over the house by herself, shes doing chores. I was at the house last week and she changed her clothes from school and put them in the laundry basket. This is a kid who was sitting in a high chair and couldnt do anything physical seven, eight months ago. And he keeps telling me, I look at her, and thats my child and she motivates me every day to be a better person. Every day, he says. Thats my motivation. And he has stuck to it ever since he first saw her. Brumadge completed his case plan and officially was reunited with Ianadene in December. Eckerd procedure is that the casworker continues to make home visits for the next six months once a week for the first four months and then every other week for the final two months to make sure they stay on track and that the reunification will be successful. Those visits end and his case officially closes this month. Reunifications are not easy and require a lot of work, Hixon said. But she wants parents to know that it is possible and there is hope. They need to work their case plan and communicate with their caseworker. They want the children to be able to go home, but they also want to make sure that they will be going home to a safe, loving, better environment. And reunifications are not just limited to the mother, she said. Ive reunified quite a few fathers, and they do just as good of a job as the moms do, Hixon said. They get up in the morning and put braids in their daughters hair and put them in a cute little dress. It can happen. If the kid is in foster care, it is fair game for either the mother or the father to get custody of the child in the end. If the child is in foster care, oh absolutely, yeah, (the dad can get the child back,) Hixon said. They can work their case plan and get full custody of the child. Pretty much how it works is if mom is given a case plan and dad is given a case plan, as soon as that parent gets their case plan done, shows that they have learned from their experience and learned from working their program and weve observed visits with the parent and child, that person is going to be the one to get custody of the child and get the child out of foster care. Because we dont want kids sitting in foster care. We dont side with mom because shes a mom. We side with the parent who works their program and continues to work it. Brumadge encourages all fathers out there to step up and care for their kids and do whatever they need to do. His life has been so much more rewarding since hes become more active in his childrens lives. Before he always made sure he provided for them, but now he has realized that it doesnt matter if he spends a bunch of money on them every time he sees them. Sometimes, its just the little things and quality time together that are the most special moments. Hixon continues to be amazed by Brumadge. I think the biggest thing with Shawn is that he is really an incredible guy, Hixon said. Hes done an incredible job with his child. He is an inspiration and should be an inspiration to all fathers. All men. Not only did he get his daughter back, but shes severely disabled, and hes done an incredible job. Hes definitely someone I admire. Its amazing.

At the end of the day, a person is not judged for their successes. Theyre judged on how they react to failure, he said. Are you someone who makes excuses? Are you someone who quits? Are you someone who runs and hides? Or are you someone who refuses to be that person? Frioud also took a moment within his speech to warn graduates about pharmaceutical drugs. This is important. This is an epidemic in this country right now, he said as the crowd roared in agreement. You stand up and say, My life is way too important to put chemicals and crap in my body. It ruins lives. Chris Arbutine, mayor of Belleair Bluffs and a 1984 graduate of Largo High School, addressed the class as the alumni speaker.

I hope that when you drive by Largo High and see this flag flying that you are proud of your history as a Packer, Perez said. Finkbiner urged the graduates to continue the schools goal of becoming lifetime learners and leaders. Be proud of your accomplishments, but never stop learning, because it will lead you to even greater heights than you ever thought you could reach, he said. Youve heard the term: knowledge is power. I submit to you that applied knowledge is even more powerful. Finkbiner later introduced the inaugural Learners and Leaders Award.

Teenage girls, as young as 14, are being forced into prostitution. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri plans to give the growing problem of human sex trafficking more attention. A special victims unit will begin work in July. Gualtieri talked about the issue June 5 during a workshop overview of the Sheriffs Office. He told commissioners that local girls, runaways, are being forced to work in adult entertainment venues and hotels where men are forcing them into prostitution. Weve got to get our arms around this, he said. We have to do something about it. Deputies recently went to a topless bar on U.S. 19 where they found a 15-year-old girl being forced to strip. She also was being forced to do sex acts at a hotel located next door. She received 50 percent of the take. Gualtieri said the men force the girls using intimidation. Some are beaten. The sad part is when deputies find these girls and call their parents, the parents dont want them back, Gualtieri said. The people running the teenage prostitution rings use websites, such as backdoor.com, to advertise their services, he said. He didnt elaborate further on the most recent case because it is still under investigation. He said the victims are girls with no place to stay. They get introduced into the network. The guy sweet talks them and gives them a place to stay. Then he says, now this is what youre going to do, Gualtieri said. He talked about a case from May 2009 where women were being held at a home in Treasure Island and being forced to work at Vegas Showgirls in St. Petersburg and other venues. The case is believed to be the first domestic human trafficking case in the Bay Area and perhaps in the state. Gualtieri said the women could have left any time while they were at work, but didnt due to the threat of psychological and physical intimidation. After work, the girls went back to the house in Treasure Island where they were locked up. If they didnt make enough money, they would beat them, Gualtieri said. Another growing problem is hardcore child pornography. Its out of control, he said. Its hardcore and theres way too much of it going on in Pinellas County. Weve got a problem and were going to deal with it. No new personnel will be hired for the new special victims unit. Instead, Gualtieri will use deputies freed up by contracting out transport services to the jail. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri Police beat Police beatPolice arrest bank robber suspectLARGO Largo police have arrested a 42-year-old man in connection to the bank robbery and bomb hoax at Fifth Third Bank June 3. Detectives identified Anthony Jerome Walker as a person of interest after investigating tips from the community, the department reported. They identified Walker as the suspect after further investigation and forensic analysis of evidence left at the scene. Law enforcement officers throughout the county were alerted to look out for Walker and the truck he was believed to be driving June 7. Within minutes, Largo police spotted Walker, driving the described truck, near North Betty Lane and Palmetto Street. Police followed him until Clearwater officers and Largo detectives made a coordinated traffic stop. Walker was pulled over and taken into custody without incident at 2097 Drew St. in Clearwater. He was transported to Pinellas County Jail and charged with armed bank robbery and placing a hoax bomb. The Fifth Third Bank at 1698 Missouri Ave. was evacuated June 3 after a masked robber left behind a backpack, which he said contained an explosive device. The backpack was found to have nothing inside. Tarpon Springs man dies in crashCLEARWATER A 20-year-old Tarpon Springs man died June 9 in a car crash on northbound U.S. 19 north of Hammock Pine Boulevard. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that Jezreel Lamont Saunders was traveling southbound in the outside lane of U.S. 19 at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his 2003 Honda Accord about 4:51 p.m. The car rotated counterclockwise, crossed over the grass median and into the northbound lanes of U.S. 19 and into the path of a 2007 Ford van driven by Norman Ertel, 36, of St. Petersburg. Ertels van collided with the passenger side of Saunders car, which overturned and vaulted on top of a 1996 Mazda Miata driven by Diane Ryan, 49, of Brandon. As Saunders car overturned, he was ejected and then struck by Ertels van. Saunders died at the scene. Ertel was transported to Largo Medical Center for minor injuries. Ryan, and her passenger, Timothy Ryan, 50, of Brandon also suffered minor injuries and were transported to Mease Countryside.Texas man injured when hit by carSEMINOLE A 28-year-old man from Brownsboro, Texas, was injured when he stepped in front of a car on Starkey Road and 106th Avenue in Seminole June 7. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Spencer P. Saathoff had been walking southbound on Starkey Road in the paved roadway in a construction zone north of 106th Avenue about 1:55 a.m. When he attempted to cross the southbound lanes of Starkey Road, he walked into the path of a 2011 Nissan Frontier driven by Kenneth Sim, 48, of Seminole. Sim was traveling southbound on Starkey Road in the outside lane approaching 106th Avenue North. Saathoff suffered serious injuries and was transported to Bayfront Medical Center. Anthony Walker Clearwater officer recognized for service to homelessCLEARWATER The Clearwater Civitan Club recognized Brian DeWitt at the groups law week meeting at the Clearwater Police Department on May 21. Police Chief Anthony Holloway spoke about DeWitts assignment as part of the Community Liaison Team as well as his work with the City of Clearwaters Homeless Initiative. The Homeless Initiative focuses on providing resources to homeless individuals to improve their resources as well as cleaning up encampments to improve the citys environment. In one instance, DeWitt reached out to a family whose home was in desperate need of maintenance. He contacted several contractors and retailers who donated supplies and labor to make the repairs. The Clearwater Civitan Club presented DeWitt with a plaque in recognition of his service. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Tropical Storm Andrea formed the evening of June 5 in the east-central Gulf of Mexico. It made landfall in Dixie County about 10 miles south of Steinhatchee about 5:40 p.m. June 6. At the time of landfall, maximum sustained winds were 65 mph. Conditions were improving around Pinellas County that Thursday afternoon. Reports of power outages and some flooding were coming in from different locations. The bulk of the damage was reported from Gulfport where a confirmed tornado touched down about 10 a.m. The city reported that the waterspout touched down on Shore Boulevard and Clinton Street and moved north on Beach Boulevard South passing the Public Library, Gulfport Senior Center and Clymer Park. City officials said trees, branches and a power line were down. There was structural damage to Yummys restaurant on Beach Boulevard. National Weather Service confirmed the tornado June 7, reporting damage from winds of 60 mph on a path 1.9 miles long and 50 yards wide. The length of time it was on the ground was two minutes. Twelve homes had damage to fascia, shingles, awnings and fencing. The Humane Society of Pinellas reported around noon that a large section of roof was down in the kennel area where adoptable dogs are kept. Twila Cole, director of events and community relations, said all the dogs were damp but safe. Pinellas County began a survey of its beaches Friday afternoon. The beaches did well with some minor dune erosion along Treasure Island and Long key, and essentially no dune erosion along Sand Key, Andy Squires with the countys Coastal Management Program said by email. There was some sand loss from the lower beach along all the beaches, but since Sand Key was nourished last year, the dunes and much of the dry beach remained intact. University of South Florida geology professor Ping Wang is working on a more detailed report, which will be released later. Wang reported on the substantial damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby, which passed offshore Pinellas last summer. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge was closed due to high winds just before noon and remained closed until about 6:15 p.m. NWS reported a wind gust of 51 mph at Treasure Island about 12:13 p.m. A gust of 48 mph was reported at the Albert Whitted Airport in St. Petersburg at 10:16 a.m. St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport reported a wind gust of 47 mph at 3:10 p.m. Rain totals between 1 inch and 5 inches were reported with some of the highest totals coming from Largo. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations outlook for the 2013 indicates that it could be extremely active with 13 to 20 named storms, seven to 11 hurricanes and three to six major hurricanes. Hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.

Above, thrill-seekers react to large waves crashing up onto shore on Clearwater Beach. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Her job keeps her up at night. Making plans for nearly a million people if disaster were to strike is a big responsibility. Sally Bishop, director of Pinellas Countys emergency management, updated County Commissioners June 4 on emerging plans for the upcoming hurricane season. Bishop and her team stay prepared to deal with disaster 365 days a year. Her job involves planning for a variety of threats fire, flood, hazmat, pandemic, bioterrorism, oil spills, thunderstorms, tornados with a focus on the biggest threat, hurricanes. Bishop said nearly 600,000 county residents are vulnerable to storm surge from a Category 5 hurricane, which is the strongest on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. Sixty-two percent of the population and 60 percent of homes are located in an evacuation zone. Roughly half of the power stations, phone switching stations, water treatment plants and pumping stations are in surge vulnerable areas. All but one wastewater treatment plant is vulnerable. Forty-one percent of the countys medical facilities also are vulnerable to storm surge and about half of the schools. Storm surge, not wind, is the biggest threat from a hurricane, she said, unless you live in a mobile home. Were a peninsula on a peninsula, connected by bridges for nearly all ingress and egress, and the most densely populated county in the state, Bishop explained in her PowerPoint presentation. Tampa Bay is recognized as one of the top hurricane vulnerable urban areas in the country. The Weather Channel picked Tampa as the most vulnerable and overdue hurricane city in a report released June 3. Its been 91 years since a major hurricane hit the Tampa Bay area. Since that time, the population has grown 1,300 percent. Bishop stressed that point. We have never experienced a true Category 1 hurricane unless you were here in 1921, she said. Bishop talked about her departments plans that cover every aspect from the beginning of a disaster up through having the ability to turn the county back on and put things back in a smarter way. Thankfully, weve never done a recovery here, and I hope we dont, she said. Bishops staff travels to disaster areas, including New York City, hit hard by Hurricane Sandy last season. We have lessons learned from others who learned the hard way, she said. Part of the job is education for citizens and visitors about safety threats to help them prepare. Bishop talked about the results of an AAA Consumer Pulse survey released at the beginning of the hurricane season June 1. The survey of residents who live in the southeast revealed that only 51 percent would prepare for hurricane season this year. Fifty-five percent said they would evacuate if a storm were a Category 3 or greater. Sixteen percent said they wouldnt evacuate at all. Applying those percentages to Pinellas would mean about 96,000 people in surge vulnerableEmergency management director talks about planning for disaster See PLANNING, page 7A Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Alex Silversmiths 442-7333010313SILVER & Property appraiser estimates higher values for the current year By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Its been a long time coming, but property values in Pinellas are finally on the rise. Property Appraiser Pam Dubov released the estimated 2013 taxable values by taxing authority May 29. The numbers forecast an overall 3 percent increase countywide. This is good for the taxing authorities, fire districts and municipalities. If the estimates prove true, it means more money for the coffers. The total taxable value for the general fund in 2013 is estimated to be in excess of $55.97 billion compared to $54.35 billion in 2012. The property appraiser forecasts a 2.98 percent increase for the countys general fund, health department, Pinellas Planning Council, Juvenile Welfare Board and Southwest Florida Water Management District. A slightly larger increase of 3.41 is estimated for Emergency Medical Services. The Pinellas County School Board could see a rise in values of 3.18 percent and 3.33 percent for Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority. Tax values for unincorporated countys municipal services district could go up 2.32 percent and 2.26 percent for library services. Pinellas Park Water Management District values could increase by 4.10 percent, according to the estimates, with 1.37 percent increase for Clearwater Downtown Development, 3.89 percent for Feathersound Community Services and 2.2 percent for Palm Harbor Community Services.

Pam Dubovareas would not go anywhere. Getting people to understand its a bad idea not to plan to evacuate and waiting to the last minute is difficult. But, its more difficult for emergency personnel who know when things get bad theres nothing they can do to help until after the storm passes. Bishop talked about listening to 911 calls from people who say the water is coming in to their homes and 911 telling them that no one can come and get them. I get goose chills just thinking of it, she said. She said if people in evacuation zones wait until the wind and rain arrives, they might not be able to get out of harms way. The best we can do is to get them to higher grounds where theyll be safer, Bishop said. A safer place is a shelter, hotel or with family or friends in a nonevacuation zone. Bishop said plans call for only the most at-risk to evacuate. We would never try to evacuate all of Pinellas County, she said. We would have to start three to four days early. Pinellas County residents should have a hurricane kit with enough supplies, food and water to last for seven days, which is longer than recommendations for others who live in coastal areas. Its likely we could lose our bridges in a large storm, she said. Getting everything in and out through North County is not going to happen. She said plans include running ferries across Tampa Bay if need be. The bridges are another reason people should evacuate as soon as the order is given. When the winds arrive, officials will close the bridges and barrier island residents could be cut off from the mainland. At a recent summit with governments on the barrier islands, officials talked about setting up government on the mainland if necessary. They talked about how to set up emergency operations centers and other operations facilities off island, Bishop said. Like citizens, theres a lot they dont want to think of, she said. But theyll need a place to set up business, conduct meetings. Bishops staff also works with local businesses on planning to get back up and running as fast as possible after disaster strikes. Retail is critical to get back in business so the citizens can get what they need, she said. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that the 2013 season could be extremely active with 13 to 20 named storms, seven to 11 hurricanes and three to six major hurricanes. Hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/resident/disas ters.htm or www.TBNweekly.com/special_section/hurricane_guide. PLANNING, from page 6A Not much is left of the I-10 Bridge after Hurricane Katrina. Pinellas County depends on its bridges to connect with the mainland.

It is because your pets veterinarian wears many professional hats. Your pets veterinarian is also your pets dentist, psychiatrist, cardiologist, radiologist, anesthesiologist, surgeon, ophthalmologist, and much more. That is a lot of knowledge that is required of your pets doctor. Now add several species to that knowledge. Taking your pet to one doctor and one location for all of these health care services is a major convenience and requires an equally educated staff to provide exceptional quality service for you and your pet. Have you ever asked yourself why your doctor visit cost is $25 and your pets doctor visit was more? In most cases, what you pay is only your co-pay because you have health insurance. Look at the statement your insurance company sends you to see what your care actually costs you. Today there are so many insurance companies that sell pet health insurance, but not many people take advantage of this opportunity. It can really help when your pet is sick or has an accident. Some policies will even cover wellness care like vaccines and dental cleanings. When you pay for veterinary products or services, dont forget to realize that there is so much more behind the charges you pay for. Here are some insights into the quality and convenience incorporated into veterinary fees: Walk-in appointments If you walk into a veterinary hospital you will most always be worked into the schedule and be seen. That is usually not the case with most physicians offices. Technology The newest technology like digital X-rays and anesthesia monitoring equipment increase the quality of care provided to your pet. Digital X-rays have made it possible to take an X-ray and have your pets doctor go over it with you within 2030 minutes. In most cases with human health care we are sent to another location for imaging procedures. Digital X-rays allow us to pick up subtle changes that wouldnt be as visible if we used X-ray film processing. The newest anesthesia monitoring equipment enables your pets doctor and staff to closely monitor your pet making anesthetic procedures much safer. Laboratory Equipment Having an inhouse laboratory can enable your pets veterinary team to get blood results within 20 minutes to diagnose your pets illness that much quicker. Even if the blood is sent to an outside laboratory you get results the next day. When was the last time you had a blood test done and found out the results the next day? Usually you get a call a week later. When you got those results, how many of you actually got to speak to your doctor about those results? In veterinary health care you have more access to speak directly with your pets doctor. Staff The more educated, experienced and efficient the veterinary staff is, the better quality of service your pet will receive, and the more expensive it will be to employ this kind of staff. If your pets veterinary hospital is unable to keep exceptional staff and are always hiring new staff, this will interfere with the quality of service provided. This is because the staff has to use valuable time to constantly train the new employees, which means more waiting time for you and your pet. In order to provide excellent care for your pet, there has to be enough staff to do it. Wouldnt you feel more at ease leaving your pet at a hospital where the staff knows you and your pets name and the majority of their staff has been there for years? Dont forget that the licensed staff is required to keep up on the most current trends in veterinary medicine by earning continuing education credits. Pharmacy How many of you could walk into a pharmacy now days and get your prescription filled within 10 minutes? Having a well-stocked pharmacy and staff available to provide this service is another convenience you dont find elsewhere. As you can see, your pets veterinary team is providing quality and convenience that cant be found in the human health care field. This quality and convenience is what you must remember when looking at your invoices for your pets veterinary health care.Kim Donovan, D.V.M. is an associate veterinarian at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole with 16 years experience and a special interest in feline medicine. A feathered best friendSpyke, a photogenic 19-year-old blue and gold macaw, has been named the June Pet Photo Winner. Her human is Mike Mularz of Seminole, who adopted her from a breeder in Maryland when she was only 2 weeks old. They have been best friends ever since. Spyke was Spike until he laid an egg. She is a very gentle, loving bird who loves people and especially getting scratched on her head. She has worked a lot with people, particularly children and seniors in nursing homes, bringing joy to whomever she can. In Spykes free time, she loves posing for the camera, going to the beach and playing in the sand (although she hates the water itself,) eating nuts especially shelled pine nuts, and riding with Mularz on his motorcycle. She actually hangs out on the bike in the garage and stays there and wants to go for a ride, Mularz said. If I dont go somewhere, I have to kind of force her to get off the bike. He started small, first with taking her on his boat with him. Then she went four-wheeling with him and then tried mountain biking, which was a bit bumpier. There, she rode on the handlebars and then they worked up to a road bike, which was faster. Now she rides on the motorcycle where the speedometer is behind the windscreen and she loves it. I call it flight without effort, Mularz said. Spyke is such a great bird that she has friends everywhere far more than Mularz said he will ever have. She was stolen a few years ago, and he said the entire community came together to help find and return her, and for that he will always be grateful. As our pet photo winner, Spyke wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@TBNweekly.com.

Residents are urged to evacuate with their pets. The best and most comfortable option for Pinellas County pet owners is a home of a friend, relative or coworker who lives outside of the evacuation zone. Arrangements should be made well in advance of the arrival of a storm. Although some hotels and motels accept pets, it is important to remember rooms in hotels and motels outside of affected areas book quickly. Residents are urged to call ahead to ensure rooms. Pinellas County schools and Pinellas County government have three pet-friendly shelter locations. Residents are urged to consider these shelters as a last resort in the planning process. Residents must call 582-2150 to preregister themselves and their pets for these pet-friendly shelters. Per federal law, service animals are allowed in any public shelter. Pet shelters accept only cats and dogs, and availability is limited. Mobile home residents are given first priority. The pet-friendly shelters are located at: Oak Grove Middle School, 1370 S. Belcher Road, Clearwater Thurgood Marshall Middle School, 3901 22nd Ave. S., St. Petersburg Dunedin Middle School, 70 Patricia Ave., Dunedin Horse and livestock owners need to have preparations in place well in advance. Pinellas County no longer provides any public areas to leave these animals during evacuations so residents need to make arrangements to shelter their horses. The Sunshine State Horse Council has an informative Web page that provides guidance on how to prepare your horse to weather the storm. Visit www.floridahorse.com/hurricane/hurricane.html for details. Animal shelters, such as Pinellas County Animal Services, the Humane Society and the SPCA, cannot accept pets during emergencies. However, these facilities will serve as important collection points for pets separated from their owners after the storm. Some points to remember during evacuation: Take your pet when you evacuate. Do not leave your pet at home. If you cannot take your pet with you, ask friends or family living outside of evacuation areas if they can keep your pet. Keep a pet carrier (portable kennel) for each pet one that allows your pet to stand and turn around. The carrier should be marked with your pets identification. Make sure all your pets vaccinations are current and have proof available of its current countyissued license. If you use a kennel, make sure it is not in an evacuation zone and reserve space as soon as possible. Kennels require proof of vaccinations. All Pinellas County pet owners need a pet hurricane preparation kit that includes food, water, dishes, favorite toys, kitty litter, newspapers, paper towels and medication. Additional tips on how to prepare your pets for emergencies can be found at www.pinellascounty.org/emergency/petpreparedness.htm.

But then the good news came. His dad, Luigi, recalled that day in May as though it were yesterday. That day he called me at the restaurant. He was very excited, and we were all anxious waiting for the word, he said. When he told me, I actually jumped up, right there in the restaurant full of people. But the next second, I was kind of sad with the realization that he was going to be gone. Luigi Gallace said despite his impending absence, the family supports Mike because of the opportunity. It is a fantastic opportunity and it is a prestigious award. Im so proud of him; it is absolutely amazing, we could not be prouder, he said. The 10 months that Gallace will be away will be a long, lonely time for the family, but especially for his mother, according to his dad. She is very excited but she is definitely going to miss him, he said. When he went away to school in Winter Park, she would sit and stare at the chair where he used to sit all the time. He would sit there and be on the Internet, or play the guitar or do his homework. Finally she got a poster of him and put it in the chair and stared at that. Oh, she is going to miss him. Gallace said he is going to miss his family as well. The tough part of all this will be leaving my family and friends. I made so many great friends in college. And it will be tough not being home for all the holidays. There is no chance Ill be able to come home once I leave; Ill be gone for the full 10 months. But the negative isnt that bad when you consider the positives. I think it will be worth it, he said. It is unlikely Gallace will join his family in running the Indian Rocks Beach restaurant. He said he wants to go into a business that involves some sort of community service. Even if he did want to go into the family business it is unlikely his father would let him. No, I dont want him in this business, Luigi Gallace said. I expect more and higher and better things for him. He is much smarter than I am. Beyond that, Mike Gallace isnt sure what he wants to do when he comes back home in June 2014. I want to come back having left a good mark for the U.S. over there and to bring back enlightenment for here, he said. Im going to need time to figure things out. There are a lot of different ways to go, and Im hoping the scholarship will help center me. Gallace joins 1,600 other students or graduates from the United States going overseas on a Fulbright scholarship this year. He is one of seven students from Rollins College to receive the scholarship this year. The Narcotics Overdose Prevention & Education Task Force, Pinellas Chapter, presented scholarship awards to three high school seniors to help cover college costs. The awards were presented during three different award ceremonies between the dates of May 22 and May 29 at Dunedin High School, East Lake High School and Largo High School. The student resource officers presented the awards. Deputy Jim Miller presented $500 to Alex Lebhar a senior at Dunedin High School.

Lebhar plans to continue his education at the University of Central Florida. Militello is the president of the SADD club at East Lake High. Deputy Frazho said in her reference letter, I have worked with Meagan and she has had no problems in or out of school and she is a fine example of what a SADD member should be.

Email jtorres@TBNweekly.com. or call 397-5563, ext. 324. By BRIAN GOFFLARGO It was an email that is about to change a life. When Mike Gallace, 22, of Largo went to his computer last month, he got the news that he had won the Fulbright Scholarship, and his dream to go to Vietnam would be a reality. It was on May 2, the day after my birthday, he said. I checked my email and when I saw it, it changed my whole day. It was the best birthday present I could have gotten. Gallace is the son of Luigi and Jennifer Gallace, proprietors of Villa Gallace on Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach. He just finished four years of studies at Rollins College in Winter Park. The scholarship will pay his way to Vietnam where he will spend the next 10 months teaching English and getting involved in other cultural activities. While there, the scholarship also provides him with living expenses, in effect, a salary, he said. I have a bachelors degree in international business, he said. I will teach English and take part in social and cultural clubs so I can learn about the country. Gallace will work through Mekong University and will live in the town of Vinh Long. He said he has already begun to study Vietnamese on his own and will register for formal language classes once he gets there. The scholarship is named after the late Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright, who was a noted anti-Vietnam war proponent and a promoter of multi-cultural exchange programs. He died in 1995, but the scholarship in his name lives on. Getting the scholarship was a tough chore, according to Gallace. It was an intense process that started nine or 10 months ago, he said. I had to write a personal essay and meet with a special committee. The school also has to support my application; without that the application would never have been submitted. Then there was a screening process, and I found out I made the cut in January. But he didnt get the final notice that he had won the scholarship until May, and waiting was tough. Gallace said he had friends who had won the scholarship and were told in March. As time went on, he Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Greenley Scholarship fund. Katherine Koehler, who will be majoring in retail, merchandising and product development at Florida State University, was nominated for the scholarship based on academic achievements and her strong passion for retail. For Koehler, it was her love of shopping that led her to her interest in buying and developing products for the retail industry. After learning about product development, analysis, and costing this career marries both my strengths, to be both creative and analytical, she wrote in her scholarship essay. With hopes of one day being a developer or buyer for a major company or stores private label, Koehler is big on corporate social responsibility and admires new ways of impacting the community, such as recycling initiatives. She also enjoys participating in Relay for Life. As part of the application process, each recipient submitted essays on their career aspirations, how they would impact their community as a retailer, and the most inspiring retail innovation they have experienced as shoppers. In addition to the $5,000 scholarship, recipients also will receive a travel grant to attend the Shop.org Annual Summit in September. During the 2012-2013 school year, the foundation distributed nearly $375,000 in scholarships to college students. The NRF Foundation is thrilled to be able to provide these deserving students with financial support and experiences as they pursue their passion for retail, said Ellen Davis, executive director of the foundation. The Ray M. Greenly Scholarship Fund was established to honor the memory of a former Shop.org vice president who lost his battle with cancer in the fall of 2005. His generous and kind spirit inspired NRF to establish a scholarship that provides financial support to students pursuing a career in retail. The scholarship is partially funded by a portion of the proceeds from CyberMonday.com, a website launched in 2006 to provide retailers with the opportunity to highlight their online promotions on Cyber Monday and throughout the year.

Deputy Schenique Harris participated in the webcast June 4 from the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center, 14250 49th St. N. Harris works at the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center and is the mother of a professional football player with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Leonard Johnson. Harris was recently asked to speak during a webcast to promote the importance of staying in school and following a career path outside of the NFL. Harris, along with other members of the Professional Football Players Mothers Association, spoke to about 150 fifth graders in North Carolina via the Web. Students at Lebanon Elementary were given the opportunity to hear Harris speak about her responsibilities as a court deputy and how a court deputy and patrol deputy have different job duties. She was able to use this opportunity to inspire the students to stay in school, study and obtain a higher education.

Florida Citrus Country has expressed an interest in purchasing the commercially zoned land should another developer step forward to purchase the residential lot, Hartmann said. If sold separately, the asking price of the commercial portion is $1.35 million and $1.55 million for the residential land. The family would break up the property. But it would need to be timed right, Hartmann said, because the sales would have to be closed simultaneously. The ideal scenario, Edelman said, would be if a low-density residential development was built on the back lot, Florida Citrus Country stays where it is, and new commercial developments were built up around it. I think this would fit nicely with the model of what the city is trying to do, Edelman said. And from a tourist standpoint, a lot of tourists come here looking for that spot. It would be great if it stayed put. Gretchen Cain, the chambers chief of operations, added, Citrus Country has a certain charm and appeal for tourists. It represents old Florida. Al Repetto opened Orange Blossom Groves on Seminole Boulevard with his uncle, Charles Bud Hutchison, in 1946. At the time, this land was considered to be part of Largo. When they first opened, my father was attending [the University of South Florida]. My grandmother wanted him to be an engineer, said Sandy Miller, Repettos daughter. But the family owned many orange groves and his uncle called him back home to enter the thriving citrus business, she said. Eventually, they expanded to build Briefs By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE The family of citrus king Al Repetto, who died last July, has put the iconic property that was once home to his Orange Blossom Groves up for sale. The property, 5800 Seminole Blvd., which was put on the market last week, consists of six parcels of land totaling 9.2 acres, and is listed at $2.9 million, said Realtor Sandy Hartmann, who is handling the sale. Each parcel is zoned separately for its own land use. Five commercial lots, with a frontage on Seminole Boulevard, total 2.2 acres. It includes a 21,400square-foot building as well as a 1,595square-foot office and 3,900-square-foot retail store. Abutting the commercial land to the west are 7 acres formerly a small orange grove, Hartmann said zoned for residential use. Currently, Florida Citrus Country leases the commercial space and operates on the property on a seasonal basis, continuing the tradition of Repettos famous orange-vanilla swirl ice cream, produce stands, and small gifts. Within the first week of the property being listed, Hartmann received half a dozen inquiries regarding the land, she said. Roger Edelman, president of the Seminole Chamber of Commerce, said hes heard of two proposals for the property so far. One would permit a fairly high density development in the back portion and a group of stores in the commercial front portion, he said. He added, The citys going to have a tough time with that one. In my opinion, I dont think it would go down. a second storefront on U.S. Highway 19 in Largo in the early 1950s. Miller recalled her father as the muscle of the business, spending many hours in the fields. He was a hands-on grower, she said. He just loved agriculture. Orange Blossom Groves was forced to shut its doors in 2005, after the familys 270-acre grove in Ruskin succumbed to citrus canker. Miller and her siblings, as well as her own children, grew up on the property, and have fond memories of the community-oriented business and its customers. People would come and meet with friends. Thats what I remember the most. There was always someone you knew there, she said. We wouldnt have been anything without our customers. She added, The decision to sell the land was tough. If we could do it all over again, we would. If I could open back up tomorrow, I would. It was a great place to grow up.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSThe ebb and flow of life in a mobile home parkEditor: Dont say trailer or it will cost you a quarter each time, my friend told me with a smile. She had a jar half full. She transformed my thinking by changing my words. As I approach another birthday (dont ask), I have found some tranquility and serenity living in a mobile home park (community, as the brochures say). I never dreamed I would like it but found this particular situation to be ideal. I have moved four times in 2 1/2 years mainly because most rentals are available for six months at a time. Here you can rent indefinitely. I found this 55+ community perfect because it has 1,100 mobile homes (enough to be anonymous), yet small enough that neighbors look after one another. Beginning in May and extending into early June, a wonderful peace settles on the park, just at the time when temperatures approach 90 degrees and hurricane season begins. Its called the Flight of the Snowbird. Half of the park becomes vacant, a quiet pervades the atmosphere and every amenity turns sweet. The two pools become ours as my girlfriend and I meet to play UpWords (a Scrabble game) poolside with frequent cooling dips. Lawn chairs are abundant, in rows like soldiers at attention. One pool is salt-disinfected; the other uses chlorine. We switch off to enjoy each environment, and rebelliously discuss buying floats to flaunt the rules. Whos to know? The once-busy golf course (my car was almost struck by an errant ball) looks park-like, occupied by birds and bunnies instead of people. Homes facing the course have installed fence walls on the exposed window sides. The park has seven miles of paved roads so I can take my cat for a ride on my tricycle (yes, I got a granny bike because its basket accommodates a squirmy cat without me losing balance). Seasonal residents go through a curious preparation prior to returning north. The homes awnings are shut, making the house look sleepy with its eyes closed. Automobiles are wrapped so not an inch is exposed. Some homeowners express their individuality (and perhaps past career) by, their choice of car cover. The tires trade snowboots for sunshoe coverings that look silly. Even the golf carts are enveloped down to the tires that sit on small pads so even the rubber does not touch the hot pavement. Those left behind for the summer and fall take advantage of this lull, feeling like renegades, running stop signs and speeding through the park. The main clubhouse, usually a hive of activity, is quiet while many events and all club meetings are canceled for the summer. The only people working are the crews assigned to seal the roads with blacktop while most are away. People I pass infrequently as they motor by in cars or golf carts seem like close friends now. We share a brotherhood of Year-round Floridians, and we feel like we are the tough ones. I put faces and names together and while complaining about the heat, secretly enjoy this break from the busy masses. When October comes and the heat keeps burning, I may begin to feel a little lonely for company and think wistfully about the place needing some bustle and commotion. I remember that Thanksgiving is coming soon and with it a loss of cherished freedom as dog-walkers, joggers and bikers peer into my kitchen window as they go by and strangers intrude on my silence by attempting conversation. I reflect on the ebb and flow of life in a Largo, Florida, mobile home park and realize both seasons add complexity, frustration, joy, humor and richness to my life. Cristina Cofn LargoGet rid of red light camerasRe: Red light camera legislation provides due process, letter by Pinellas County Circuit Court Clerk Ken Burke, May 17.Editor: Leave it to Ken Burke, a government bureaucrat, to put a nice spin on red light camera legislation. It almost makes me want to get a ticket so I can furnish an affidavit or request a hearing within 60 days to avoid receiving a traffic citation. What if my brother borrows my car and gets a citation. I can always turn him in, but what if he wont fess up to using my car? Who are you giving a ticket to, Ken? Or what if Im stuck in no mans land to let an emergency vehicle by and the light changes? Or what if Pinellas County decides to shorten the time the light changes from yellow to red? How about we just get rid of the cameras? Its another way for Ken Burke and the rest of the bureaucrats to pick our pockets. Its not about safety; its about the money. Gennaro Diana DunedinWalmart not a good neighborEditor: I was quite surprised not to see any mention of the two new Walmart Supercenters going to be built in our communities of Seminole and Largo in your paper. On Sunday, in the Tampa Bay Times there was an article about the new Walmart Supercenter supposedly going to be constructed on Bay Pines Boulevard on the site of the former Bay Pines Mobile Home Park. Funny that discussions have been ongoing in the city of Seminole for 6-8 months already, yet the public has not heard anything about it until now? Why, also, is the city of Seminole considering this when we already have a Walmart only a few blocks away? It may not be a Supercenter, but I see no need for this retail giant taking over in our communities. Then, I was aghast to see another article in the Tampa Bay Times that another Walmart Supercenter will be constructed at U.S. 19 and Roosevelt. Walmart is overrunning our communities and our community leaders are just fine with it. A very sad day for small business in our communities. Walmart is not a good neighbor and they do not employ those with a good living wage. I just wish the public were more informed as to what our leaders are trying to do to our communities. It seems to me there is not much sunshine in the Seminole and Largo communities. Marilyn Good SeminoleEditors note: Tampa Bay Newspapers has published stories about the two Supercenters based on discussions Seminole and Largo officials have had at their meetings. The papers will continue to write stories as plans go through the development process. What the tornadoes cant destroyYear after year, when tornadoes sweep through Oklahoma and other destructionprone regions of the USA, questions inevitably arise: Why do the victims remain there? Why dont they pack up what few belongings they still have and move elsewhere, far from Tornado Alley? Similar questions are directed to families who persist in building homes on the banks of rivers, on seacoasts, in tinder-dry forests, and on California hillsides subject to periodic mudslides. Responses to such queries are easy to come by. Why dont tornado victims cut and run? Heres why: ECONOMICS. Even if a destroyed home is insured, most owners dont have the money they would need to relocate and establish a new life elsewhere. Existing mortgages must be paid off and the properties then offered to new (and probably reluctant) buyers. EMPLOYMENT. If I have a steady job in the disaster zone between Oklahoma City and Tulsa, who says Ill be able to find another one if I pick up and move to a state thats free of severe weather threats (if such a paradise even exists)? FRIENDS AND FAMILY. Although some Americans live alone and have little contact with neighbors and nearby relatives, most of us do not fit that pattern. We have at least one family member living close by. Theres a church we attend, or a Kiwanis chapter we belong to. We are pack animals: we lean on others, and they lean on us. Often, there are children to think about. Did you ever have to tell a 15-year-old that youre removing her from her high school friends and shoving off for Michigan just because there are fewer tornadoes there? FAMILIARITY: LOVE OF PLACE. If you were raised a Bedouin nomad in the dusty wilds of Morocco, you wouldnt mind folding up your tent every couple of days and moving on to the next oasis. But few of us are Bedouins (although Ive known a few couples whose main reason for living was to try out a new apartment every few months.) Most folks prize familiarity, the sense of place, the security that comes from belonging to a village or even a huge city, and knowing how it works, who is next door or down the street. DEFIANCE. In the face of an enemy, most Americans would rather fight than surrender. A tornado is an enemy. So is a hurricane. If my home is battered or destroyed by such perversions of nature, I may be tempted to give up and crawl away. No one will blame me for doing so. Or I can rise up in the surrounding wreckage, shake my fist at the heavens and vow to overcome whatever fate sends my way. That seems to be what most citizens of Moore and hundreds of other twister towns decide to do. Those are a few reasons tornado victims against all good sense, perhaps choose to stay where they were living on the day the storm struck. There are some things that tornadoes cannot destroy. A couple of other thoughts about tornadoes, while were on the subject. In reviewing the news media coverage of disasters, you will have noticed that our societys favorite allpurpose expression (Oh, my God!) is uttered countless times before, during and after a tornado strikes. As survivors, news media and rescue workers sift through the wreckage, inevitably the merciful hand of God is seen by persons whose lives and loved ones were somehow spared. Oddly enough, a short distance away, a woman whose husband and children died in the tornado may also credit Gods will as the reason for what has happened. I will never cease to be amazed that anyone who views the suffering and loss that took place in Moore, Okla., and other such towns can believe that a loving God, of any religion, was the architect of such a calamity. Only a numbskull or a dupe sees God in the face of a funnel cloud. An equally towering piece of stupidity is the notion that such things as homosexuality, rock music or marijuana are transgressions that can trigger Jehovahs wrath. Ive heard such allegations, and Ive wondered how so many religious folks can stand to worship a god whose left hand holds a bloody scythe and whose right hand grips a smoking shotgun. My own conclusion: If the presence of God is to be found anywhere near a tornado, it will appear in the humble and resilient hearts of the people who emerge from the shambles to mourn, and then start to rebuild their homes and their lives.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. Send him an email at tralee71@comcast.net. Leaping lexicons and dumpster talk The staff language Bible has turned my world upside down. That would be the Associated Press Online Stylebook, a comprehensive reference manual that outlines basic rules on grammar, punctuation, usage and journalistic style. Our editors use the stylebook extensively; otherwise, wed kill each other. Newsroom grammar wars aint pretty. Since the 1970s I have been consulting the stylebook and for years have changed the word underway to under way in letters to the editor and reporters copy probably more than a thousand times. Not anymore. When I pointed out recently that underway was spelled incorrectly in a headline, a co-worker set me straight. The stylebook update in April said that under way is two words, she said. Leaping lexicons! I couldnt believe my ears. I ran to my computer in hopes that she was joking. Sure enough, the APs entry for underway said one word in all uses. Further explaining, the AP said it was complying with the dictionary Websters New World College Dictionary, which is the AP Stylebooks main reference. Dictionary be damned. Its almost impossible for us to keep up with changes in rules for grammar and style, especially since newspaper staffs are shrinking. Papers large and small just dont have the manpower to edit and proofread stories as much as we believe we should. Theres even a new entry for the correct spelling of the North Korean leader: Kim Jong Un instead of Kim jawng oon. Sorry, that North Korean SOB is unacceptable in all references, including letters to the editor. Another recent change: Dumpster is the correct reference for a large metal trash bin. For years, editors were taught to change dumpster in copy to another word, to avoid receiving a nasty letter pertaining to the improper use of trade names from the Dempster Brothers, which made the Dempster Dumpsters. Thats a relief. Its more concise to write in an editorial that Kim Jong Un should be thrown in a dumpster than Kim Jong Un should be thrown in a large metal trash bin. Mo-ped is now moped to conform with the dictionary, AP says. I have no problem with that as long as moped is not used as a verb. Far too much verbing out there. Along those lines, I recently read a news release that said that an accident victim was helicoptered to hospital. Cant remember what the victims injuries were, but the press release required a lot of surgery. More annoying verbing: We dialogued, in box me and efforting. Oops, AP says inbox is one word. The AP Stylebook even has 185 fashion entries, from A-line to Giorgio Armani, bodysuit to pantsuit to zoot suit. I dont even know what a zoot suit is; sounds like clothing that belongs in the dumpster. Fashion guidelines? Somebody please beer me. The AP Stylebook says to abbreviate boulevard, avenue and street in numbered addresses, but not road, drive and terrace. Hopefully, readers will forgive us if we do. Every now and then, we hear from readers chastising us for committing errors in grammar and spelling and for missing typos. Even though a headline may be read three or four times, sometimes a typo slips by us. Nice to hear from the press crew, too, when they catch errors especially before the presses run. Ill probably read this column six times because somebody out there will find an error in this piece and let me know about it. Such is life. Ill just grin and bear it. In the words of Mark Twain, I dont give a damn for the man who can only spell a word one way. However, youll never catch me using any type of aircraft as a verb. And the day that AP says such usage is acceptable, somebody push me out of a helicopter. But not into a dumpster, please.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

who pestered them before and after Keyhole Notch delivered her baby. One dramatic day when the new baby was two months old, the bull Taxus kidnapped it. He raced around, keeping Kale helplessly at his side by swimming at speed. Keyhole Notch and Kelly pursued them but did not approach. Many suspenseful minutes later, the bull dropped off the baby and sped away to join his buddy. Baby Kale sped the other way toward mom. Keyhole Notch and Kelly zoomed over and they were successfully reunited. But it wasnt over. Soon the little trio encountered some of our local females. Though the latter were obviously interested in the newborn Kale, they did not clearly kidnap it. Nonetheless, they too showed that Keyhole Notch could be intimidated. Ultimately they refrained from pressing their advantage. Reunited, the little family receded into that great unknown the sea during the cold months. Yet they were among the first dolphins to return to our backwaters this spring. Kelly is now 4 years old. Unlike bottlenose dolphins that age whose mother has a yearling calf at heel, Kelly has stayed with mom and sibling. It alternates between hunting nearby and swimming side by side with its family. I was going to say that this little family is one in a million out at sea. But that is an exaggeration. They are literally one in a hundred.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Rare dolphin family is just outside your doorstepEvery person has a unique family story. There are endless versions of the stable family of dad, mom and the kids. There also are all sorts of new combinations, created when the first family fissions apart and fusions with others to re-form into second and even third families and beyond. Family is nearly a unique human phenomenon, and I emphasize the word nearly. But our many variations on the human family theme are unique. That is because most of the other animals do not form anything like (any version of) a human family. For example, 98 out of 100 dolphins outside your doorstep came from a family of just two: me and mom. I suspect Oedipus would like to kick in here. But this is biology. Sorry, pal. Capt. John Heidemann and I have seen only two exceptions to the me and mom dolphin family unit among the free-ranging bottlenose dolphins we monitor in the Johns Pass estuary. As such, these two exceptions are conspicuous. The first of these two rare dolphin families existed for a year and a half beginning in 2008. Mom was a dolphin we call Valiant because she survived a nasty shark bite. Son number one was VC, named for the acronym Valiants Calf. VC was born in 2004. Son number two was Viceroy, born four years later in 2008. Like most calves abruptly displaced from moms side by the arrival of a younger sibling, VC hung around his mom for a couple of weeks after the usurper baby was born. Normally, that is about the time that older calves leave (wean). This time, however, nature intervened. Both calves got hurt. About the same time that newborn Vice appeared with fresh shark bites, his big brother VC appeared with the top half of his dorsal fin sliced clean off. A shark may also have bitten VC, but the clean cut implicates a boat propeller. Either way, instead of becoming independent from mom Valiant, older calf VC stayed with his mom and new baby brother for a year and a half before striking out on his own. It worked out well for Vice (and hopefully VC). Big brother VC was a great buddy and babysitter. Vice recovered from his wounds. Understandably pouring precious resources into healing rather than growth, he stayed small for his age. Calves that are injured increase their dependence on mom. At the time, we assumed that VC stayed home because he got hurt. The other dolphin family does not appear to have been provoked by anyone getting hurt, as far as we can tell. This family is also trio of a mom, her older calf and her younger calf. We call the mother dolphin Keyhole Notch after the nick pattern on her dorsal fin. We call her older calf Kelly, which is a good asexual name for a dolphin whose gender we do not know. Kelly was born in 2009. We call the younger calf Kale, born in 2012. Mom Keyhole Notch is one of a group of females we call the Girls of the Gulf. Singly or in subgroups, the Girls of the Gulf appear in our local waters every spring like clockwork. In the years when Keyhole Notch is pregnant, she reappears in time to deliver her newborn in the warm shallow waters around Johns Pass. It is this behavior, shown by numerous resident and nonresident females, which contributes to the idea that Johns Pass is a vital nursery ground for bottlenose dolphins. Keyhole Notch had a rough time of it last year when she and Kelly came to town a month before she delivered baby Kale. She and Kelly stayed around the mangrove islands inside of Johns Pass. But they attracted the questionable attentions of a couple of nonresident bulls Photo by ANN WEAVERMother dolphin Keyhole Notch has been through more than shell ever tell, starting with the Frankenstein scar over her eye. Dolphin WatchAnn Weaver Near shore structures are summertime hot spotsWith our water temperature approaching the mid80s, mid-day fishing especially on the shallow grass flats can get pretty tough. As we approach mid-summer conditions it is imperative to search out those areas that provide good tidal flow, depth and structure. Structure is a relative term; a deep depression just off the edge of a flat, or a deep trough cut through the sand along the pass shoals can both be considered structure. Some more obvious structures would be jetties, beach breakers, and, of course, the many artificial reefs that line our coast. Some of the most productive fishing this time of year happens around our pass jetties. These massive structures will hold all kinds of bait, making them a natural stopping point for just about any predator that swims by. Current is usually always present and fish like snook and tarpon will stage up and wait for their meals to come to them, so free-lining your baits with the current makes for great fishing. A medium sized pinfish or a chunk of fresh ladyfish fished on the bottom will let you know if there are any redfish around. Near-shore mitigation reefs provide excellent habitat for a variety of game fish. These shallow reefs can be found from 50 to a couple of hundred yards offshore. They will hold trout, flounder and cobia and tarpon. Using light tackle and small pilchards will work for the trout, mackerel and flounder, while bigger live baits will attract the attention of the tarpon and cobia. This is the time of year when we start to see a lot of fry bait in the water both off the beach as well as deeper flats inside the bay. Fishing around these schools of fry bait can be really good. Often youll find schools of Spanish mackerel busting through the clouds of microbaits. Live chumming with pilchards will quickly switch the fishes attention to the bigger baits, Until next week Get bent!Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. Fish TalesCapt.

PETERSBURG Bob James and David Sanborn recently introduced their all-acoustic project Quartette Humaine, a tribute to the late iconic pianist-composer David Brubeck, putting a prime spotlight on his work that featured alto saxophonist Paul Desmond. James and Sanborn will perform songs from their new album Saturday, June 22, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N. The concert is part of Ruth Eckerd Halls On the Road series. Tickets start at $45. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. James and Sanborn, performing with Steve Gadd, will bring their latest tour to the Palladium at St. Petersburg College in downtown St. Petersburg. The tour follows the release of Quartette Humaine, the first collaboration between James and Sanborn since their 1986 Platinumselling, Grammy Award winning album, Double Vision. The new album features bassist James Genus as well as drummer Steve Gadd. OKeh released Quartette Humaine on May 21, bringing James legendary composing and skills on the keys together with the sweet sounds of Sanborns alto sax. Im so glad this has finally happened, Sanborn says in a statement on his website. Its so great to work on something that is not only aesthetically rewarding but also fun. Bob is the greatest. We also had great collaborators in James Genus and Steve Gadd. They each brought so much to the music. Im really looking forward to playing this music live. David is one of the most inspiring musicians Ive ever collaborated with, says James on his website. We were long overdue to follow up on the only time we ever did a project together. So this project is very special and has given us the opportunity to share our separate musical experiences and create something new and different. After several months of preparation and discussion, Sanborn and James recorded Quartette Humaine in mid-December, according to a press release promoting the album. On their second go-round, the old masters eschew the pop and R&B production values that mark large one side of the many kinds of music I was doing. Over the past decade, Sanborn adds, his records reflect a side of my sensibility that I hadnt been expressing as much, paying respects to guys like Hank Crawford and David Fathead Newman, who inspired me to start when I was a teenager in St. Louis. Its a poignant coincidence that the recording sessions occurred a week after the death of the iconic pianist-composer Dave Brubeck, who the protagonists were thinking of as they gestated Quartette Humaine. We talked about the interplay of Brubecks quartet with Paul Desmond, Sanborn says. Coming from that, I assumed wed make a quartet date. I like being able to really hear all the individual instruments. We had this beautiful 9-foot grand piano, and you can hear its sound ring out. You get more sonic purity without all those other elements. Quincy Jones at the Notre Dame Jazz Festival originally discovered James in 1963. That same year, James recorded his first solo album, Bold Conceptions, for Mercury Records. Fifty-eight albums and innumerable awards would follow through five decades. He honed his skills working with Creed Taylor, working on albums for artists like Hank Crawford and Grover Washington Jr, among others. While with CTI, James found great popular success overseeing significant hits for Paul Simon, Neil Diamond, Maynard Ferguson, and Kenny Loggins. Born July 30, 1945 in Tampa, David William Sanborn contracted polio when he was only 3 years old according to his biography at PRA Records. As a part of his rehabilitative therapy, he was introduced to the saxophone. It was an introduction with consequences quite beyond the imagination of his parents, doctors or anyone else. The selection of the alto sax a favorite from Davids days spent listening to the radio would prove to be a pivotal moment in the development of his sound. In his three-and-a-half-decade career, Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight gold albums and one platinum album. Having inspired countless other musicians, he has worked in many genres which typically blend instrumental pop, R&B and lately, more and more traditional jazz. He continues to be one of the most active musicians of his genre. Sanborns solo release Taking Off (1975) is still considered a classic and further solidified his career. His 1979 release Hideaway became a popular hit and further propelled Daves ascent with the single Seduction being featured in the movie American Gigolo. Veteran bassist and composer Marcus Miller joined Sanborn on the 1981 album Voyeur. The single All I Need Is You won him his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Instrumental Performance. In 1983, Sanborn released the hit album Backstreet that included Luther Vandross as a featured guest vocalist. Later albums have included guest artists such as Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Charlie Hayden, Wallace Roney, Kenny Barron, Christian McBride, and Eric Clapton. chunks of their respective discographies, and offer instead an allacoustic quartet recital consisting of six new compositions by James, three pieces by Sanborn, and a James-arranged standard. We felt its far more exciting and adventurous to move forward, James says. Times have changed. The music business has changed. We have changed. At this stage of my life, I wanted more than anything to play music thats challenging and fun, outside the style weve been associated with, Sanborn says. For various reasons, a lot of my records only reflected Bob James, left, and David Sanborn Local author donates through book salesLARGO Largo author Vincent Vias will be donating $1 to breast cancer research for every copy of his new novel, The Funeral Portrait, sold between now and July 2.

PETERSBURG The Museum of Fine Arts is opening its doors wide this summer. Admission is now $10 for everyone through Sept. 30, 2013. Groups of 10 or more adults pay only $8 each and groups of 10 or more students pay $4 per person. On Thursday nights, when the museum presents UnchARTed: Random Acts of Culture, college students with current identification pay $5 or can buy one admission, get one free. The MFA has the only comprehensive art collection, extending from antiquity to the present day, on Floridas west coast. It is also one of the few museums in the state where visitors can see so many stellar paintings by Claude Monet and Georgia OKeeffe, as well as works by other important European and American artists. The Museum of Fine Arts has always been the communitys museum, said Kent Lydecker in a press release. Lydecker is director of the museum. The MFA opened to the public in 1965 the first art museum in St. Petersburg and until 1993, was free. Sundays remained free for many years. The high cost of operating the Museum and caring for our collection has forced us to charge admission. We depend on community support. As a thank you, we welcome the opportunity to lower our admission fee this summer from $17 to $10, when many people have more time to enjoy and experience great works of art. The museum has a number of special exhibitions on view this summer. Philip Pearlsteins People, Places, Things, on exhibit through Sunday, June 16, is the most extensive retrospective ever of work by this acclaimed American artist. The 62 paintings, drawings, and prints range from 1941-2011 and encompass his large-scale nudes posed in the studio, as well as unforgettable portraits, landscapes, and historic monuments and sites. Pleasure Grounds and Restoring Spaces: Photographs of our National Parks opens Saturday, June 1. These magnificent photographs of natures bounty and majesty include four signature images by Ansel Adams, including Clearing Winter Storm, Yosemite National Park, California (1944), and two large-scale works by Floridas own Clyde Butcher. Other highlights are images by Carleton Watkins, Timothy H. OSullivan, Eliot Porter, Aaron Siskind, Brett Weston, William Clift, John Pfahl, Laura Gilpin, Don Worth, Jerry Uelsmann, and Linda Connor. A number of these photographers have been influential in preserving our countrys most beautiful and sometimes-endangered lands. Katherine Pill, the new assistant curator of art after 1950, takes a fresh look at the collection in her first MFA exhibition, Color Acting: Abstraction Since 1950, opening Saturday, July 6. The works are by such major figures as Josef Albers, Richard Anuskiewicz, Ilya Bolotowsky, Gene Davis, Hans Hinterreiter, Perle Fine, and Helen Frankenthaler. The Polishing the Jewel project begins in June. Jeff Daly, former chief exhibition designer and senior design adviser to the director at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is the consultant. The galleries in the original building will be refurbished. Tired and worn flooring, wall-coverings, and ceiling-tiles will be replaced, and lighting will be upgraded. Historic architectural details will be revealed and restored. A reinstallation of the collection will follow in preparation for the MFAs 50th anniversary in 2015. Choice works will come out of storage and the museums treasures will be displayed in more imaginative ways. post-production studios in Italy. Only the most sordid horror films have their sound processed and sharpened in this studio. Gilderoy, a naive and introverted sound engineer from England, is hired to orchestrate the sound mix for the latest film by horror maestro, Santini. Thrown from the innocent world of local documentaries into a foreign environment fuelled by exploitation, Gilderoy soon finds himself caught up in a forbidding world of bitter actresses, capricious technicians and confounding bureaucracy. Obliged to work with the hotheaded producer Francesco, whose tempestuous relationships with certain members of his female cast threaten to boil over at any time, Gilderoy begins to record the sound for The Equestrian Vortex, a hammy tale of witchcraft and unholy murder typical of the giallo genre of horror thats all the rage in Italy. Only when hes testing microphones or poring over tape spooling around his machines does this timid man from Surrey seem at ease. Surrounded by Mediterranean machismo and, for the first time in his life, beautiful women, Gilderoy, very much an Englishman abroad, devotes all his attention to his work. But the longer Gilderoy spends mixing screams and the bloodcurdling sounds of hacked vegetables, the more homesick he becomes for his garden shed studio in his hometown of Dorking. His mothers letters alternate between banal gossip and an ominous hysteria, which gradually mirrors the black magic of Santinis film. The violence on the screen Gilderoy is exposed to, day in, day out, in which he himself is implicated, has a disturbing effect on his psyche. He finds himself corrupted, yet hes the one carrying out the violence. As both time and realities shift, Gilderoy finds himself lost in an otherworldly spiral of sonic and personal mayhem, and has to confront his own demons in order to stay afloat in an environment ruled by exploitation both on and off screen.

From punk pioneer to global superstar, Idol has created an unparalleled niche in popular music and remained a household name for over three decades. He is respected as the original punk rocker who long ago found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime. Still as vital as ever, Idol will take to the road in the summer of 2013 giving fans across the generations an opportunity to chant along as he delivers his endless catalogue of hits. In tow for the tour, hes got longtime partner and legend in his own right, Steve Stevens, on guitar. As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent and a fan of the Sex Pistols, Idol was inspired to front the popular British punk band Generation X from 1976 until the bands breakup in 1981. He then decided to try his luck in America. At this point, Idol hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a crucial musical partnership was forged. From there on out, Idol churned out many hits such as Rebel Yell, White Wedding, Dancing With Myself, Flesh For Fantasy, Hot In the City, Eyes Without A Face and Cradle of Love among others.

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.
