Three heroes recognizedCity honors firefighter, bystanders for quick action in bar stabbing By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Rebecca Schaefer, fresh out of physical therapy for stab wounds to her left arm, knew exactly how fortunate she was to be standing in front of the Largo Commission July 2. The 32-year-old bartender thanked the city for orchestrating the reunion. Then she addressed the three men who leaped to her rescue when a disgruntled patron began stabbing her May 19. Im so grateful to you guys, Schaefer said. Without you guys there, I might just be a memory. The city of Largo presented awards to Largo Firefighter/Paramedic Nick Rees, his brother Gordon Rees of Largo and new Clearwater resident Mike Arnold for their heroic efforts that Sunday night. Schaefer said the gratitude and appreciation she felt went beyond words. You guys are my heroes. Youll always be in my heart. You gave me a second chance. You saved my life. Thank you, she said. The three men were merely bystanders at the Red Lion Pub when Schaefer was attacked. It happened so fast, Gordon Rees said. His brother said they went to the Indian Rocks Beach establishment to play foosball, relax and hang out. They were on their way out the door, at around 11 p.m., when they heard screams and commotion behind them. Gordon Rees said he didnt think very much, but knew he had to try to get the knife away from the man who was stabbing the bartender several times. We didnt really see him. We just acted, Nick Rees said. Meanwhile, Arnold said he watched the attack unfold in front of him from around the corner of the bar. He also rushed to help Schaefer. The first-time visitor of the bar had only moved to the area from Bradenton two weeks prior. Arnold tried to take the knife from the man, and he was cut in the hand in the process. The brothers tried to restrain LARGO Largo police arrested a Largo High School teacher June 26 on one charge of child abuse. According to the police report, on the second to the last day of school, May 30, a group of students was playing cards in Thomas E. Farmers technical arts class. Farmer asked them to stop. He also reportedly told them if they did not put the cards away, he would let another student, who practices martial arts, to physically make them, the report said. The students did not put the cards away, and the student was allowed to choke one of the card-playing students at the teachers suggestion.

Lightning more likely to kill males while fishing, camping and boating By SUZETTE PORTERSummer time storms can be deadly. Lightning is one of the biggest hazards, coming in second to flooding as the top weather-related killer. Making the public aware of the danger was the goal of Lightning Safety Awareness Week, June 23-29. Summer is the peak season for one of the nations deadliest weather phenomena lightning, according to the National Weather Service. Though lightning strikes peak in summer, people are struck year-round. In the United States, an average of 53 people are killed each year by lightning, and hundreds more are severely injured. Florida tops the charts when it comes to deaths attributed to lightning with 468 occurring from 1959-2012. Texas ranks Photo by WAYNE CATHELA huge bolt of lightning hits offshore Belleair Beach June 26. A Brandon woman died on Belleair Beach May 28 when she was struck by a bolt of lightning. The last week of June was especially stormy with many lightning strikes and reports of waterspouts and funnel clouds. More of the same is forecast for the coming weeks. Thomas Farmer See LIGHTNING, page 4A See ABUSE, page 4ACouple helps make fitness goals accessible By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Personal trainers Jay and Sarah Sherinsky, each with a past of body insecurities, met in the middle of their respectful fitness journeys, just four months before they ended up married. Sarah, who grew up in Largo, used to be anorexic, weighing only 100 pounds at her smallest. At her worse, she had to see a nutritionist and track her condition through blood work. Jay was obese, 287 pounds and 50 percent body fat at his heaviest. I struggled, Jay explained. I pursued fitness and then personal training and then got into physical competition. The two met through a chance encounter at the gym where Jay worked in 2010 and bonded as they trained for bodybuilding competitions together. Their combined experience and a matured perspective on health and fitness eventually led them to open their own gyms and a desire to share their tried and true methods with others. The Sherinskys, looking for more space to host group training and boot camps, opened their second Fitness Rx Studios at 4760 East Bay Drive in Largo on May 4. The first location at 9089 Fourth St. N. in St Petersburg opened in September. The companys philosophy is one of equipping its clients to take charge of their own fitness. Sarah said she and her husband teach nutrition, how to work-out and the why of everything. We want to help people as much as possible in the beginning and slowly let them start working on their own, she said. Its about increasing your metabolism and not killing yourself with work-outs all the time. Sarah said the couple wants to create a family-friendly environment, one that bodybuilders and those struggling with obesity alike find comfortable. And with her University of South Florida degree in psychology, Sarah often finds herself in the role of counselor. Body weight and image comes with a lot of emotional strings. You have to unconditionally love people, she said. We want to be that gym that helps cheerleaders to people who can barely get off the sofa.

TORRESLARGO In a surprise announcement July 2, the city of Largo honored acting Fire Chief Shelby Willis for completing the U.S. Fire Administrations Executive Fire Officer Program with a perfect score. By successfully finishing the four-year program, Shelby joins a group of less than 3,500 graduates nationwide. She is Largos third executive fire officer in its history to achieve the milestone. However, she is the first in the department and one of only 188 people in the world to receive a perfect 4.0 score, City Manager Mac Craig told the audience. The National Fire Academy offers the fouryear program to teach the countrys senior officers how to transform fire and emergency organizations from reactive to proactive services through leadership development, prevention and risk reduction. The program consists of four, two-week courses at the National Fire Academy in Maryland. At the end of each course, candidates must develop a thesis paper of applied research related to their organization. The applied research project must be completed within six months of the course. Senior fire officials from across the country grade the resulting thesis papers. Only if her thesis is of sufficient quality can the candidate return for the next session at the academy in the following year. Few candidates complete all four classes of the program. The topics are executive development, executive analysis of community, executive analysis of fire service operations and emergency management and executive leadership. The program gives senior officers the (e)nhanced executive-level knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to lead these transformations, conduct research, and engage in lifelong learning, according to the U.S. Fire Administrations website. Craig presented Shelby with a plaque in recognition of her newfound status. Shelby became acting fire chief upon the retirement of former Fire Chief Mike Wallace April 1, following an internal investigation of complaints regarding his leadership. The city has not announced the launch of a search for a permanent replacement. Willis is expected to be eligible for the position. New engine joins Largo Fire Rescues fleet By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO A 2013 Pierce Ultimate Configuration fire engine, destined for Station 41, was delivered to Largo recently. Largo Fire Rescues new engine, named E41, has the latest in technology and innovations in safety. It will be outfitted with tools, hoses, radios and a mobile computer before it goes into service, likely in about a week, said Asst. Chief Michael Handoga. The engine will replace one of the five frontline engines currently in service throughout the city. The nicest thing is this standardizes our fleet, Handoga said. They (the five engines) all are basically the same, which is a huge accomplishment. The uniformity of the vehicles design allows drivers from different stations to be able to operate any of the engines without extra training, as they will find all of the equipment in the same places, Handoga explained. The city will have three reserve engines after the latest vehicle is put into service, with an older engine from Station 43 going into reserve status. Handoga said one of the reserve engines will likely get sold, mostly because the department doesnt have room to store all three. The vehicle cost $559,563 with additional equipment costing $72,875, according to city documentation. Largo commissioners approved its purchase, following the recently updated fire vehicle replacement schedule, on Oct. 16.Above, a brand new vehicle became Largos fifth frontline engine this month. It will be assigned to Largos Station 41, at 180 Fourth St. At left, a side view of the vehicle, to be named E41, as indicated in the design on its side, shown below.Photos courtesy of LARGO FIRE RESCUE City calendar City calendarLargo Central ParkThe Largo Central Park is at 101 Central Park Drive.

Briefs4A County Leader, July 4, 2013Sheriff Bob Gualtieri says molly newest drug threat By BOB McCLUREST. PETE BEACH Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri told members of the Barrier Islands Governmental Council June 26 that his department has shifted gears in its ongoing efforts against illegal drugs. After putting the brakes on the illegal sales of hydrocodone and oxycodone, Gualtieri said drug dealers are now flooding the streets with a substitute called molly, a derivative of MDMA. Its a hallucinogenic that is selling for about $900 an ounce, said Gualtieri. Because weve cracked down on opium-based pharmaceuticals, were seeing this drug molly on the streets. Thats what people have migrated to. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, molly is the powder or crystal form of MDMA. It is considered a Schedule 1 controlled substance, which DEA says means it has a high potential for addiction. The drug can cause confusion, anxiety, depression, paranoia, involuntary teeth clenching, chills, sweating and blurred vision, DEA officials said. Gualtieri said it is the latest example of a continuing problem in society, which is drug addiction in general. This is an addiction problem. The only way we as a society are really going to make a dent in this, I believe, is to put a lot of effort into prevention, education and treatment, Gualtieri said. We can continue on the law enforcement side to do what we do. Were going to continue to do that and do it well. But all were doing is squeezing the balloon because its an addiction problem. Another major issue in Pinellas, Gualtieri said, is the increased sexual exploitation of minors, especially young teenage girls who are being forced into prostitution. Some of this, I believe, is because weve clamped down on some of these people who are selling a lot of these pharmaceutical drugs, said Gualtieri. They dont care how theyre going to make money as long as they dont have to get a real job to do it. If it means selling dope, if it means stealing stuff and selling it or finding these 14and 15-year-old girls and making them prostitute themselves and making them give all their money to them, they dont care. Gualtieri pointed to a recent arrest at a hotel at 54th Avenue North and Interstate 275. These were guys who were involved in drug dealing but they werent dealing drugs, Gualtieri said. They were dealing 15-year-old girls. These girls were seeing six or seven guys a day and if they werent doing what they were supposed to be doing, they were beating the girls and threatening them. This is a big problem and were seeing more of it. To combat the problem, the sheriffs office is launching a special victims unit July 14 with five detectives and a sergeant who will focus on the issue. Gualtieri said the county has also seen a spike in hardcore child pornography cases and his department is assigning two detectives to an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force dedicated to just that. I believe weve had it in the community, Gualtieri said. Were seeing more of it, were aware of it more but weve got to push that back. That is a real threat right now to the kids of Pinellas County. On other points, the sheriff said: A vehicle maintenance facility will be the first building to open at the new Sheriffs Operations Center on Ulmerton Road. It is targeted for Sept. 14. The remainder of the $80 million campus will open in March. The Sheriffs Operation Center, which consists of a new sheriffs administration building and public safety campus, will consolidate emergency communications into one site. The countys 911 emergency system and the Sheriffs Office communication system will be merged. Other police communication departments, such as Largo and Clearwater, may follow. Over the last four years, the sheriffs budget has been cut $108 million, which has resulted in a 28 percent reduction in staff. Over that same time pan, crime in Pinellas has been reduced 21 percent.Most fireworks illegal in Pinellas Independence Day celebrations can be full of flare without fireworks at home. In fact, in Pinellas County the retail sale or purchase of fireworks that project into the air or explode is prohibited. Pinellas County Public Safety Services urges residents to enjoy fireworks displays that are conducted by trained professionals. Its fun, safe and economical. Sparklers remain legal, but parents are reminded they can be dangerous, reaching temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. Only those over 12 years of age should handle sparklers of any type. Many young people are burned by sparklers every year so adult supervision is necessary at all times. Officials urge citizens to use extreme caution and follow basic safety recommendations: Read all cautions and warnings. Use sparklers only outdoors. Use sparklers as intended do not try to alter or combine them. Do not mix fireworks and alcohol. Never pick up fireworks that may be left over after the display, as they may still be active.Hurricane preparedness continuesResidents have been busy the past few months finding their homes evacuation level, stocking survival kits and preparing important papers. But have all of the finer points in those survival plans been considered? With Tropical Storm Andrea serving as a wakeup call, and storm activity traditionally light in July, it is the perfect month to tie up the loose ends for hurricane plans. Some items frequently overlooked include: Pet preparation Should an evacuation be ordered, many pet owners will risk everything because they havent made arrangements for their pets. Create a plan that includes food, medications, identification and anything else a pet will need, and decide now on a pet-friendly shelter such as at a friends home or at a hotel that welcomes pets. The car needs a kit Residents may have their homes prepared, but what about their cars? Jumper cables, a flashlight, a first aid kit, a small tool kit and some extra nonperishable food and water may mean the difference between getting to an evacuation destination safely and being stuck on the road. Need a lift? Residents who are mobility impaired and have no other transportation option can register for special needs evacuation assistance. Should an evacuation order be issued, the local fire department will make arrangements to pick up the registered person and transport him or her to a special needs shelter. Residents who believe they may qualify can call their local fire department for more information. What about medications? Since pharmacies may be closed after a storm affects an area, its critical that residents get enough prescription medication and overthe-counter medications to last a minimum of two weeks. Florida Statute 252.358 and 462.0275 require all insurers and managed-care organizations to suspend refill-too-soon restrictions when a patient seeks a refill in a county under a hurricane warning or in a state of emergency Renters need a plan, too While an apartment may be in a non-evacuation zone, what are the owners or property managers plans to secure the facility in the event of a hurricane? Now is the time to check out the plans.

Due to the reduced availability of reclaimed water, Pinellas County reclaimed water will continue to be unavailable on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays while the system is shutdown for maintenance and storage level recovery. Customers are encouraged to continue limiting their reclaimed water use to help with this resource recovery initiative. As the return of seasonal rainfall helps stabilize reclaimed water supplies, the reclaimed water systems capacity will be re-evaluated. This shutdown schedule is anticipated to remain in effect until storage levels recover, at which time the reclaimed water system will be returned to full operation.

Nick was stabbed in the right forearm.Finally, Gordon Rees and Arnold were able to disarm the man and hold him down until deputies arrived. James Klingbeil, 50, was later charged with attempted murder and two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He remains in jail awaiting trial, unable to meet the $140,000 bond. Nick Rees received eight stitches in his arm and was able to return to work a few days later. Arnold, a mechanic, is still healing from the injury to his dominant hand. I know your lives have not been made any easier for this, and Im sorry for that, Schaefer told the three July 2. Ive thought about all the different ways it could have gone down that night, and Im just so glad it played out exactly the way it did. Schaefer said she encountered Klingbeil while she was working the night before the attack. He had left with a girl and came back with scratches, she said. It was just odd, so I didnt want him to be there anymore, she explained. The intoxicated man was asked to leave. Schaefer, whos worked as a bartender for about 10 years and at Red Lion for five, said he gave her attitude. But it wasnt anything she hadnt seen before. She didnt think anything of it. On the night of the attack, Schaefer wasnt scheduled to work, but had stopped by the Red Lion to socialize. Klingbeil came back and was again refused service. He left, but according to Sheriffs Office reports at the time, he walked along Gulf Boulevard purchased a fillet knife at a convenience store within a few blocks. When he came back, his verbal attacks focused on Schaefer, who said she didnt engage him. When he was again asked to leave, he pulled out the knife and attacked Schaefer. (He) was looking to kill someone, she said. Schaefers injuries required more than 100 stitches, she said. The damage was focused on her left arm, which is unfortunate, given that shes left-handed. Recovery has put her out of work. My life went from crazy busy to a standstill, she said, adding that she is looking forward to things returning to normal. Im doing better, she said. Friends and family of the heroes and victim alike packed the Largo commission chambers July 2. The city presented Nick Rees, one of their own employees, with a National Medal of Honor for Valor. Gordon Rees and Arnold received awards for Meritorious Service. All three were cheered in standing ovations. Its been overwhelming, Nick Rees admitted, as the crowd surrounded the group in the lobby of city hall after the awards, expressing thanks and taking pictures. Im so grateful for everyone to be recognized and for Rebecca to be OK.while being choked, the report said. Instead of stopping the altercation, the teacher instructed the victim to tap out. The victim passed out, fell and hit his head. When class ended, Thomas allegedly told the students to help the victim onto a school bus. The bus driver and other students called the student resource officer about 2 p.m., who found a disoriented student in need of medical attention, the report said. The 14-year-old student was transported to All Childrens Hospital with head injuries. The victim has since recovered from the injuries, police said. After the resource officers investigation, charges of child abuse were sent to the State Attorneys Office where probable cause for the arrest of the teacher was supported. Farmer, 44, of Largo was arrested at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 26, and transported to the Pinellas County Jail. He was released on a $10,000 surety bond just before 2:30 p.m. Farmer resigned his position with the Pinellas County School District effective June 7. Police said battery charges are being filed against the 16-year-old male student who choked the victim. No. 2 for the same period with 215 deaths. Tampa Bay is in the top three areas in the state for the number of lightning strikes that occur each year. Eight people have died from lightning thus far in 2013, including a 51-year-old Brandon woman who was struck by lightning while walking on Belleair Beach May 28. Two more people have died from lightning in Florida this year a 57-year-old male fishing from a boat in Lake Okeechobee June 8 and a 35-year-old male climbing down scaffolding in Naples June 26. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a study June 24 that showed 64 percent of lightning deaths since 2006 occurred while people were participating in leisure activities. John Jensenius, a lightning safety specialist with the National Weather Service, conducted the study and examined demographic information for 238 deaths from lightning over the past seven years. Jensenius found that of the 152 deaths association with leisure activities, fishing was No. 1 with 26 deaths. Camping came in second with 15 deaths and boating was next with 14 deaths. Twelve died while playing soccer and eight were golfing. The other 77 people struck by lightning were either spending time on the beach, swimming, walking, running, riding a recreational vehicle, picnicking or relaxing in their yard. Twelve people died while mowing the lawn. Jensenius said the larger number of deaths from people who were fishing, camping and boating is likely due to the time it takes to get to a safe place. People often wait far too long to head to safety when a storm is approaching, and that puts them in a dangerous and potentially deadly situation, he said. Before the death on Belleair Beach, the last recorded lightning fatality in Pinellas County was a 16-year-old boy who was struck while out on Treasure Island Beach with his mother in 2007. Reports said he was on his way to a safe location when the lightning bolt struck.Males are more likely victimsJensenius also pointed out that 82 percent of the victims killed by lightning were male, and 90 percent of those deaths were in the fishing and sports categories. Females had fewer deaths than males in every category with the most killed while boating or doing routine activities. Jensenius offers several reasons why males are killed more often, including that they may not be aware of all the dangers associated with lightning. He also said males are more likely to be in vulnerable situations and may be unwilling to be inconvenienced by the threat of lightning. Other explanations include more males being in situations that make it more difficult to get to a safe place quickly or that men dont react fast enough to the threat of lightning. In short, because of their behavior, males are at a higher risk of being struck and consequently are struck and killed by lightning more often than females. NOAA and NWS are focusing on males and people who enjoy leisure activities this year to get the word out that many lightning deaths are preventable. In 2001, officials reached out to golfing communities and since that time, lightning deaths on the golf course decreased by 75 percent. Prior to NWS beginning its annual lightning safety campaign, lightning killed an average of 73 people each year in the United States. The average now has dropped to 37. June, July, and August, the peak months for lightning, coincide with the peak months for outdoor summer activities. About 70 percent of the lightning deaths occur in the months of June, July, and August, with Saturdays and Sundays having slightly more deaths than other days of the week. NOAA advises people to protect themselves against lightning dangers by monitoring the weather and cancelling outdoor activities when thunderstorms are in the forecast. A number of venues canceled outdoor events last week. Clearwater moved its last Friday Blast of the season June 28 from Cleveland Street indoors to Ruth Eckerd Hall due to the possibility of thunderstorms. The National Weather Service uses the catch phrase, When it roars, go indoors to bring home the message that lightning can strike from as far as 10 miles away. Officials want people to know if they can hear thunder, they are in danger of being struck by lightning. The only safe places to be during a thunderstorm are in a building with four walls and a roof or in a car. A hut, cabana, tent, or other rain shelter will not protect a person from being struck by lightning. When indoors, do not touch anything that is plugged into an electrical outlet. Stay away from plumbing and do not use corded phones. Cell phones and cordless phones are safe. Also, keep away from outside doors and windows and do not lie on a garage floor.

LIGHTNING, from page 1A HEROES, from page 1A ABUSE, from page 1A FITNESS, from page 1ARecently, Jay and Sarah had an opportunity to give back to the community in a way that hits close to Sarahs heart. On June 28, the couple began training the cheerleading team at Indian Rocks Christian School, Sarahs alma mater. Im mostly excited about this because I get to teach these girls proper nutrition and exercise so early on, she said. (I can) teach them, We dont have to eat salads all the time. Youre training like athletes; you need to eat like athletes. In more ways than one, Sarahs journey has come full circle through working with the cheerleading team. She didnt participate in sports herself during her three years at Indian Rocks Christian School, but was one of the only girls in a weightlifting class her senior year. The concept intrigued her, especially when she found pictures of female bodybuilding competitors. I thought it was impossible to get there theres no way the human body can get that tight and hard and crisp-looking, she said. But the interest followed her into her college years, when she began hiring trainers to help her tone her body. None of them were giving her the results she wanted. They werent educating me enough to understand the science behind bodybuilding, she said. She met Jay during her sophomore year. Their courtship started casually, as he helped her balance fulltime school, a fulltime job and her new competition ambitions. Sarah told Jay he was crazy when he first admitted that he loved her, while cooking tilapia for her one day. But Jay said he had known when Sarah first walked into the Golds Gym, looking for someone to measure her body fat, that he had met his wife. The couple didnt really date, but moved from best friends to marriage very quickly. He told me he was going to marry me, and I still thought he was crazy, Sarah remembered. In three months, Jay had helped Sarah make the journey to the stage for a figure competition. Four weeks later, they were married. Fitness Rx Studios is in part an answer to Sarahs initial frustrations with trainers and the industry that doesnt pay them enough to be invested in their clients progress, she said. There are not many gyms where you walk in and theyre happy to see you and know you by name, she said. The Sherinskys say their program is as unique as it is comprehensive. I can take anyone thats willing to apply what we teach them and get them results. It doesnt matter who you are. Any age, any condition, Jay said. Their programs are designed to be affordable as well, offering guidance for clients to do much of their work on their own. If you want to train more hands on, if you have that much money, well, then thats fine. But if you dont, well, you can still get the same results. You just have to push yourself, Sarah explained. And I teach you how to push yourself, and you have check-ins so youre accountable to me. In general, both find their career and their new business venture rewarding as well as incredibly challenging. When you get people to their goals, thats the more rewarding thing, Jay said. Id be doing this for free if I didnt have to make a living. I love it that much: getting people to their goals. Both have given up competing in bodybuilding competitions while they work to get their business off the ground. Jay, who has about a decade of bodybuilding experience under his belt, hasnt competed in 18 months. Sarah qualified for nationals last year and isnt sure if shell make it back to competing within the two-year time frame shes allotted to go pro. In order to go pro, you have to be on top of it, even a bit selfish. You cant do that when you have two businesses, she said. Thats hard for us to give up because its what we do for a living. Between the two gyms, a house and two cars, the couple has a lot of bills every month, Sarah said. Theres nothing more stressful than this. Everything is on our shoulders, she said. Sarah married at 21 to a husband eight years her senior said she had to grow up quickly in just a few years to manage all the new responsibilities. But both say the experience is worth it. Sarah says some of the feedback she gets from her clients, who express shock theyve been able to transform their bodies so profoundly, is the lift to the spirit she needs to tackle the tougher aspects of running a business. I about cry when they tell me certain things, she said. For more information about Fitness Rx Studios, visit www.fit nessrxstudiosllc.com or call 5636827. Photo by JULIANA A.

County looks to third party to settle dispute with FOG plant By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners agree it is time to ask for help from an impartial third party expert to resolve a continuing dispute between a fat, oil and grease processing plant, its neighbors and county staff. County Attorney Jim Bennett updated the commission June 18 on the status of problems related to Reliable Septic and M&D Grease Disposal located at 6660 90th Ave. in unincorporated Pinellas Park. Despite the owners work to eliminate offensive odors coming from the facility, complaints continue. Fines of $500 a day for confirmed violations are accumulating. The owner is refusing to pay. And he is accusing the county of trying to put him out of business. After testimony and some moments of heated discussion, Commission Susan Latvala said, I find it awkward for us to make a decision when we dont have the information. She suggested asking for a third party review. I want to hear from someone without a vested interest, she said. Odor complaints have come in since Reliable changed its operations to dispose of its liquid waste after it is processed on site instead of taking it to a county facility. Reliable Septic, who operates the FOG facility under the name M&D Grease Disposal, submitted an application for an industrial pretreatment permit July 10, 2010 to allow discharge of wastewater into the Pinellas Park collection system for final treatment by a Pinellas County wastewater treatment facility. The initial permit was for one year. The permit was renewed for a three-year term on Aug. 1, 2011. Beginning September 2011, a series of enforcement actions based on pre-treatment process failures and permit compliance issues (that continue to this day) were documented in a timeline Bennett presented to commissioners. His report said staff was preparing a consent order for M&Ds failure to supply an adequate sample point for M&Ds wastewater discharge. Accurate sampling protocol goes to the heart of the industrial pretreatment programs ability to protect the countys wastewater treatment facilities. Bennett said some reports remain unfiled and some fines unpaid. Since the FOG plant began operation, 110 complaints of odor were received and 59 were verified by a county air quality inspector. During the 90 days prior to the June 18 report, 11 complaints were received and six were verified. The county attorneys office recently sent a draft consent order to M&Ds attorney. Bennett said M&D wants county staff to say the facility had no odor and is incapable of emitting odors and it does not and will not produce objectionable odors, which is something staff cannot do. The countys water quality staff also received a recent complaint from a neighbor about runoff coming from the property entering a stormwater drainage ditch. Samples of the water showed levels of fecal coliform and enteric bacteria that the testing laboratory characterized as too numerous to count and off-scale high. Bennett said staff was preparing a notice of violation advising M&D of the finding and violation of a county ordinance that prohibits discharges into stormwater systems. Additional violations would result in fines, Bennetts report said. Neighbors opposed the commissions decision to rezone the property from C-2 to C-3 Jan. 29 after county staff issued a permit to the facility that could not operate in C-2 zoning. Commissioners John Morroni, Karen Seel and Norm Roche voted against the rezoning. The Local Planning Agency voted 5-0 to deny the rezoning without prejudice to allow Reliable Septic to revise its site plan and then reapply for rezoning. At the Jan. 29 meeting Latvala made the motion to approve, saying approving the zoning would allow staff to work out a development agreement to make sure controls were put into place as fast as possible to address odor, water quality and other complaints. Bennett told the commission back in January that approving a zoning change without a developers agreement was novel, but agreed that the commission could make it a condition on the zoning. Michael Albert, president of Reliable Septic, and his attorney Kevin S. Hennessy with Lewis-Longman & Walker P.A., told the commission work to resolve all the issues could be completed quickly. Albert told commissioners that control measures could be put into place within, days, weeks, a month. According to Bennetts June 18 update, a site plan application was filed soon thereafter. It was approved on May 17 with a final approval on June 6. His report said a previous court case related to the zoning and site plan would be dismissed. Hennessy told county commissioners June 18 that all operations had been moved indoors and scrubbers and filters were operational. He said steps had been taken to remove odors from outside the building. However, Ted Legakis, who owns a neighboring business, complained that M&D had not paid its fines. The odors are stronger now, he said. He said he had visited the countys other FOG facilities, one operated for the county and one operated by a private company, and they smelled, despite spending millions of dollars to control odors. He implied that M&Ds more modest investment in odor control was insufficient. He said the operation should be located on a larger piece of land to provide a better buffer between it and the neighborhood. M&Ds FOG plant is located on 0.4 acres. Hennessy said his client had done his due diligence and worked hard to resolve the matter. He said the odor concerns were addressed quickly and all sources of odor identified by county staff had been eliminated. Everything has been moved inside the facility and nothing is vented to the outside. Certain people are upset about the rezoning decision and have the support of (county) staff, he said. He said his client refused to sign a consent order because of the problem of misrepresentation. County staff revealed June 18 that the meter used to measure M&Ds wastewater entering Pinellas Parks wastewater system was clogged and inoperable. Hennessy said Pinellas Park did not want to spend the money to replace the meter because the city had been told the county was going to shut the facility down. Commissioner Charlie Justice asked Hennessy why he thought the county was in cahoots to put his client out of business. Hennessy avoided the question. Justice pushed for more information, and said Hennessy was making a pretty strong allegation. It wouldnt be the first time county staff misused authority, Hennessy said. Commissioner Chair Ken Welch pointed out that county staff had been receiving complaints from numerous people for quite some time. Im particularly concerned about the allegations, County Administrator Bob LaSala said. Hennessey gave one recent example naming one county employee who allegedly verified an odor complaint when an unnamed person on a neighboring property stated there had been no odors that day. He also said a meter designed to measure odors had recorded zero at the time of the incident. The accusations continued when Albert spoke to the commission. He accused county staff of deleting emails and other actions. I believe staff is trying to shut me down, he said. Ive heard from Pinellas Park, DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) and the health department that the county wants us shut down. He said the county began looking for someone to run a FOG plant not long after he received his permit. Next, he said the county issued a non-court ordered cease and desist order. In addition, county staff had come to his property yelling we were illegally dumping in front of two customers who left and never came back. He said it was awfully peculiar that the county asked for bids for someone to run a FOG plant about the same time he began his operation. A county FOG plant was not a matter of consideration in January, Welch said. He said the commission approved the rezoning out of faith that the odor issue would be resolved in a matter of weeks. We took the heat, he said. Im not saying its you, Albert replied. Welch said the problem was that six months after Screen capture from PCTVAttorney Kevin Hennessy tells Pinellas County Commissioners June 18 that his client has worked hard to eliminate odors coming from a fat, oil and grease processing plant located in unincorporated Pinellas Park.

These allegations are not helping, Welch said. Albert said he was continuing to make improvements to eliminate odors. He said purchasing the meter to monitor the odors was an attempt to move in the right way. He suggested that complaints received recently were coming from a small number of neighbors who were opposed to the plant regardless of the changes made in the way it operates. Now people are saying there is no odor that used to complain, he said. Peter Hessling, director of the countys Air Quality division, confirmed that there had been a decrease in the number of complaints. He said M&D had been fined for three separate odor incidents. As of June 18, fines totaled $5,000. Hennessy said he didnt believe staff had taken the proper steps to verify recent odor complaints. If it was from a year ago, we would probably write you a check, he said. But today, no. We just want the odor to go away do whatever is necessary to make it go away, LaSala said. Commissioner Norm Roche and Justice questioned the quality of equipment M&D was using for odor control. Bennett reminded the commission that odor wasnt the only issue. Id like to see this resolved. If not, well have to go in another direction, Welch said. Hennessy agreed with the commission that it was time to seek a third party expert. Thats an excellent idea, he said. I can suggest some people. It needs to happen quickly, Welch said. We need to keep working toward a resolution.Governor vetoes Police Council bill By SUZETTE PORTERTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced June 28 that he had vetoed a bill that would have allowed the Pinellas Police Standards Council to up its court cost fee assessment. According to Scotts letter, if House Bill 1411 was approved, the council could have increased its current $2 court cost fee assessment on all traffic citations written in the county to $3. Pinellas Police Standards Council is a nonprofit organization of volunteers, which include the state attorney, sheriff, local police chiefs, that recommend countywide police standards. According to its website, www.policestandards.org, the state Legislature created the council in 1972, to conduct research, coordinate policy between agencies, and make recommendations to the legislative delegation for specifically improving the quality of law enforcement in Pinellas County, Florida. In 1975, the Legislature approved the councils request to provide a Police Applicant Screening Service, which administers standardized tests and screening procedures and conducts background investigations to law enforcement offer candidates. PASS was the first regional assessment center for law enforcement applicants in Florida, substantially reducing duplication of effort while establishing a better pool of candidates available to all participating agencies, according to the councils website. The Legislature has since expanded the services of PASS to allow screening of other public safety applicants, such as communications workers, firefighters and paramedics. The $2 court cost fee pays for PASS. If Scott had signed House Bill 1411, $3 per traffic citation would have gone to PASS. The governor explained the reason for his veto in a letter, writing that Pinellas is one of only four counties that use a separately funded governmental entity for background screening and testing for law enforcement applicants. Sheriff and police departments in other counties routinely conduct background screening and testing without the need for an additional layer of government and funding, Scott wrote. In addition, the governor said that two of the countys largest public safety organizations rarely use PASS and instead do their own background checks. But the cost of the council is still borne on all people living and traveling throughout the county, Scott writes. Raising the councils court cost fee is an additional burden on those living and traveling through Pinellas County and will further exacerbate duplication of services. A group of volunteers plants sea oats June 29 at Archibald Park in Madeira Beach. From left are Heather and Ben Hetrick of Redington Beach, and Donna Rose of Madeira Beach. They were among many groups of volunteers along the beaches who planted sea oats as a method of insurance for the future. Sea oats help to form sand dunes, which act as added protection for coastal communities when flooding occurs. PLANT, from page 6APhoto by BOB McCLUREWith all the recent rains, mosquitoes are again on the wing in Pinellas County. Pinellas County Mosquito Control technicians are aggressively treating known breeding areas by ground and by air, as well as responding to calls from citizens. Technicians have noted that many homes theyve inspected have items or areas that contain standing water the ideal breeding condition for mosquitoes, which is contributing to the mosquito problem. Pinellas County Mosquito Control asks all citizens to do their part to reduce the mosquito population. Remember that mosquitoes only need a quarter to half inch of standing water for the larvae to survive. Some simple suggestions are: Empty water from any item that can hold water Flush birdbaths and wading pools weekly Flush ornamental bromeliads or treat with BTI, a biological larvicide available at home stores Clean roof gutters, which can become clogged Change the water in outdoor pet dishes regularly Keep pools and spas chlorinated and filtered Stock ornamental ponds with mosquito-eating fish Cover rain barrels with screening Take steps to eliminate standing water under houses, near plumbing drains, under air conditioner drip areas, around septic tanks and heat pumps Protect your skin from mosquito bites when outdoors. When outdoors, wear mosquito repellent (products containing DEET, picaridin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus), or long-sleeves and pants. The threat of virus, although minimal, is present throughout the year, and precautions should be taken during outdoor activities. No virus has been detected in the Countys sentinel chickens this year.

TORRESPINELLAS PARK A group of business professionals gathered for Pinellas Park Medical Districts monthly Member Mixer June 26. The event, held at the Pinellas Park Cheddars, fulfilled one of the districts primary roles to the medical industry businesses along Park Boulevard and 66th Street: networking. I do lots and lots of networking. Gads of it, said independent insurance agent Helen Fitzell between conversations with other district members. Its my life. Fitzell is not alone in the growing network of Pinellas Park business people working to promote and expand the concentration of healthcare and medical-related businesses in the T-shaped district. Since its inception in August of last year, the medical district has grown to about 207 participants, with more participating in mixers and meetings every month, said Lan Pratt, chair of the districts board of directors The medical district is very dynamic, because it really has a big arena of different types of businesses from surgeons to cancer facilities to community health centers. And then we have our support services as well, Pratt explained. The district is focused on self-promotion currently. Right now, were focusing on getting out there and meeting members and talking to them about what they feel is most important, Pratt said. In March, the district announced that National Strategies Public Relations, a Tampa-based company of which Pratt is a part, would head its marketing efforts. Brochures and packets to offer to physician offices and healthcare-related businesses have been put together to help spread the word. A membership committee was formed to help develop participation. Fourteen volunteers meet with members and potential members to build on that collaboration, Pratt said. Were just really seeing the synergy with everybody beginning to grow, she said.Medical district continues to grow, connect members Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESNetworking at the Pinellas Park Medical District Member Mixer June 26 are newcomers to the district, from left, Dwayne Pate, pharmacy manager for the Neighborhood Walmart opening at 7500 66th St. July 17; Barbara Lally with Tampa General Hospital and Jay Kerrick, store manager for the Neighborhood Walmart.Additional promotional efforts include an increased presence on social media, a monthly e-newsletter, highlighting one of the district members with a press release and participation in Pinellas Parks Country in the Park in March, which Pratt said was a great success. The district, partnered with the city of Pinellas Park, was allotted a whole section of the business promotional space. That was a really big hit and that brought a lot of awareness, Pratt said. The district is a part of the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce. Business participants must be a member of the chamber and then pay a $100 fee to join the medical district itself. The extra fee goes directly back into promotional efforts for the district. Were just really seeing the synergy with everybody beginning to grow, Pratt said. Everybody thats working with medical district is a volunteer. Business membership has its privileges. The district hosts monthly workshops to provide its members with information on relevant topics. Were bringing in speakers that really speak to what healthcare providers and industries would like to know, Pratt said. There (are) a lot of things happening out there. Just trying to keep up with all the regulations, its very confusing, and a lot of people dont have time for that. Past speakers have discussed the economics of healthcare and how to deal with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPPA. This months workshop will cover electronic medical records. Bringing the topics to the districts backyard increases accessibility of the information to its members, Pratt said. The district also helps organize local community events. Most recently, it hosted a spaghetti lunch to raise funds for the family of Eric Kaganis, the 25-year-old killed in a forklift accident June 25 at USP Structural Connectors in Pinellas Park. Our hearts immediately were affected when we heard the news about this tragic accident. We couldnt help but come together in support, Pratt stated in a press release. On Aug. 10, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the district will support the Pinellas County Osteopathic Medical Societys back-to-school health fair, in which it will offer free school and sports physicals for the new year.

DISTRICT, from page 8AFull esteem ahead helping your child gain confidenceThe road to happiness, in our personal life journey, is paved with pebbles. If you have children, you no doubt had lots of ideas about how you would raise them long before they became a part of your family. You probably felt you would be dedicated and committed to doing a good job. Most people take parenthood seriously and give it their all. And then life happens and we realize that our best-laid plans are much more difficult than we imagined. Our little bundles bring us a mixture of joy and delight and worry and guilt, laced with exhaustion and frustration. We deal with diapers, messes and lots of nos, and before you know it, theres running and tattling and fighting. There are always new problems that change, but they never end. And you know theres no turning back. No matter what happens, you do your best and devote yourself to giving your kids your love, time, energy and money. You give them the right food, clothes, toys, doctors and a taxi service. You might have even saved enough for college. Even with the very best of efforts, some parents find that their kids arent doing as well as they hoped. Perhaps they have poor grades, resist authority, exhibit immature behavior, isolate or are withdrawn. Many parents wonder, after they have done so much and tried so hard, how their child can have these types of problems. Quite naturally we begin to wonder what we can do to control their fates and keep them on the path to success and happiness. In your quiet moments you lose confidence, but no matter what, you keep dreaming of what your child can be. We have enough evidence today to know that high self-esteem is the crucial element needed for kids to have a super positive outlook on life. High self-esteem gives children a boost of inner confidence, a sense of purpose and involvement, the ability to have meaningful constructive relationships with others, success at school and work, and most of all happiness. If your child has high self-esteem, it means he likes himself. It presents itself as a quiet sense of self-respect and a feeling of self-worth. When he has it, it means hes happy to be who he is. With high self-esteem he knows he has value and he doesnt waste his energy trying to impress anyone. The way your kid feels about himself directly influences the kinds of friends he will hang out with, how he will get along in relationships and what kind of mate he will choose. It affects his productivity level, creativity, integrity, stability and if hes going to be a leader or a follower. The framework of high self-esteem is built on your child feeling both lovable and worthy. You may love your child and feel he is worthwhile, but there is a difference between being loved and feeling loved. While many parents are sure they love their child and think hes worthwhile, a lot of times kids dont get that message. Jump-start your childs self-esteem early by teaching him that he can trust you. Show him that he can feel secure, accepted and cherished because you are a reliable parent who will always be there for him. When he knows this, he will have the courage to take risks, grow, and explore the world, knowing that if he has problems, he has your supportive relationship to come back to. When you catch your kid doing something good, acknowledge and praise the behaviors you want to see repeated. Learn to correct rather than criticize. Correcting teaches a child that there is no shame, and they can learn from their mistakes. A child learns his basic goodness through the eyes of a parent. When your child sees you with a loving expression on your face they feel lovable and worthy. If they feel you are listening to them, they feel important. Tell your kids that you love them unconditionally, just the way they are. If you learn these and other valuable parenting skills, you will be on your way to empowering your children with the self-esteem they need to travel on a much less bumpy road to success and happiness. A staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013, Dina Meitner, LCSW, is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road. Wishing You WellDina Meitner Industry newsLargo Medical receives awardLARGO Largo Medical Center recently earned another quality achievement award. It is one of two hospitals in Pinellas County to receive the American Heart Associations 2013 Mission: Lifeline Silver Receiving Quality Achievement Award. The award recognizes the hospitals commitment and success in implementing an exceptional standard of care for heart attack patients in our community. Largo Medical Center is dedicated to making our cardiac unit among the best in the country, and it is Mission: Lifeline that is helping us accomplish that by making it easier for our professionals to improve the outcomes of our cardiac patients, said Anthony Degina in a press release. Degina is Largo Medical Centers chief executive officer. I continue to be so extremely proud of our team as it shows its dedication to quality care time after time. Each year in the United States, nearly 300,000 people have a STEMI, or ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, the most severe form of heart attack. A STEMI occurs when a blood clot completely blocks an artery to the heart. To prevent death, its critical to immediately restore blood flow, either by surgically opening the blocked vessel or by giving clot-busting medication. Hospitals involved in Mission: Lifeline are part of a system that makes sure STEMI patients get the right care they need, as quickly as possible. Mission: Lifeline focuses on improving the system of care for these patients and at the same time improving care for all heart attack patients.Sunstar Paramedics earns accreditationLARGO Ambulance/EMS service provider East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System Emergency Medical Services recently announced that the Commission of Accreditation of Ambulance Services has individually accredited all five of the companys divisions. This includes Pinellas Countys branch, Sunstar Paramedics. ETMC EMS is the operator of five wholly owned Paramedics Plus divisions in major metropolitan areas nationwide, and serves as the 911-service provider in each of the five locations. It is unusual for such a large provider to be able to accomplish this across their system, said Ron Schwartz in a press release. Schwartz is vice president of ETMC EMS. I want to commend our administrative staff for the hard work and dedication that these accreditations signify. CAASs stringent standards reflect our companys goals and philosophies. CAAS is an independent commission that established a comprehensive series of standards for the ambulance service industry. CAAS accreditation signifies that an EMS service has met the gold standard determined by the ambulance industry to be essential in a modern emergency medical services provider. These standards often exceed those established by state or local regulation. The CAAS standards are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality, while decreasing risk and liability to the organization. In addition to the CAAS accreditations, Sunstars operations dispatch center is ACE accredited by the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch. Also, the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport System accredits the Pinellas County Paramedics Plus operation, Sunstar, for its critical care transport services. We are thrilled to hear that we renewed our accreditations with CASS, said Mark Postma, COO with Sunstar Paramedics. These accreditations are important to us, as they signify our level of standards for EMS services.Smile for a Lifetime gains Pinellas chapterSEMINOLE Dr. Ernest McDowell, of McDowell Orthodontics, recently announced his newly founded Pinellas County chapter of Smile for a Lifetime as a way to give back to the community and invest in the future of under-served children. Through this nonprofit organization, McDowell provides scholarships for orthodontic treatment to 8 to 10 local children each year on a completely pro bono basis. At Smile for a Lifetime Foundation, the mission is to create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our community in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, underserved individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and the community. The foundation will award one set of braces per month to individuals that could not otherwise afford orthodontic treatment. McDowell has recruited a local board of directors to help inform our community on the benefits of Smile for a Lifetime and to help determine the recipients.

The couple lived and worked in Clarksdale, Miss., before moving to Indian Rocks Beach in 1997, and then to Largo in 2006. Marion served in the U.S. Air Force toward the end of World War II. He is a retired accountant and also enjoyed fishing. Ruth is a retired secretary. They are members of Anona United Methodist Church in Largo. The Coopwoods have three daughters: Jackie Coopwood of Indian Rocks Beach, Janis Aiken of Largo and Julie Carpenter of Jackson, Miss. They also have one granddaughter, Lindsey Singleton, and two great-granddaughters, Samantha and Tracy. Marion and Ruth CoopwoodRecently, headlines about the missing 8-year-old little girl who was abducted from a Jacksonville Walmart June 21 have been all over social media and the news. My heart sank when I saw the report that it was a registered sex offender who was accused of killing the little girl. Usually, I dont let my two little girls who are 7 and 8 watch the news because of stories like this, but I did show them a picture of the little girl so they could see that she was their age. I decided this time I needed to talk to them about this issue a little more. In the past, I mainly focused on them staying close to me when out and not talking to strangers. I didnt want to scare my kids, but felt I needed to take the stranger danger talk a little further. Its sad to think that one bad thing can change not only a childs life, but impact the whole family. I remember several times in my life where incidents could have turned bad, but ended up just being scary. One time when I was in third grade and my sister was in first grade, we were walking home from school and a man on a bike exposed himself to us. We really didnt know what was going on, but luckily, my mom was waiting at the corner for us and could see a man talking to us. He rode off after we said, Theres our mom. That man we picked out of a lineup, and he was arrested. I dont remember too much more than that. Another time, I was at what used to be called Pinellas Park Mall with my mom and siblings. We were looking at shoes and my little sister, who was 8 years old at the time, walked around the corner for a minute to look at the toys. In just a few minutes, a man picked her up from behind and started taking her out of the store. She screamed and kicked and the guy let her go. The mall was locked down, but they never did catch the guy. How our lives could have been changed. I thank God these incidents were just that and not life changing. As a parent, I am always looking out for my kids. I probably am a little too cautious, but if Im not, who else will be? We have to protect our kids, and when they are young we have to warn them that there are bad people out there. Most kids think everyone is nice and thats how sexual predators and sexual offenders seem to operate. Be careful this summer with your kids especially when you send them to camps. Make sure they know whats appropriate and whats not. When you go to the mall or stores keep your eye on your kids. Young kids arent the only ones that need to be cautious. A close friend of mine was on her way home for Thanksgiving break when she was in college when she was abducted by a man with a gun as she stopped at the post office to get her mail. Luckily, she was able to get away after a few days of being held hostage in his home. But the incident changed her life, even though the man was caught and put behind bars. I tell you these stories because they are true and can happen to any family. I know we have to let our kids grow up and have freedom to experience things on their own. But the question is when and at what expense? Its a dilemma I know I face these days. Years ago, you could let your children walk home from school, go play at the neighbors or ride their bike to the local store. Its not that simple these days. The world is different and we are raising our children in a different world. Make sure you talk to your kids, and listen when they talk to you. Its important because protecting our children is our job as parents. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has a website which you can use to look up sexual predators and offenders in your neighborhood or around your schools. You also can sign up for alerts and be notified by email if someone moves within a certain area around you.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERSFeral cat lovers: uninformed and irresponsible Editor: To Pinellas County supervisors and true animal lovers everywhere: I would like to introduce you to one of my three housecats. His name is Ziggy; he was adopted by my daughter while in high school and became my ward upon her departure to college. Ziggy was a loving fun and happy cat. He regularly walked with us to visit the neighbors. If we went inside, he did, too. He loved dogs, brazenly meeting strange dogs whose owners held the leash. He became everyones friend. Ziggy was constantly making friends of any animal or human that would be his friend. There were those that wanted Ziggys and his two sisters territory. Feral, mean and wild, they attacked relentlessly. At my own back door they attacked and even challenged me, a human. Ziggy was a big, strong cat and would defend himself, his sisters and our property. He never lost except his life. Ziggy recently lost weight quickly. He became lethargic and couldnt even come to sit on a lap or his pillow on our bed. We took him to the vet office and had tests run. He had a viral form of feline leukemia. This disease was given to him by a feral cat, fed by a well-meaning human with little understanding of the facts. It is a form for which there is neither inoculation nor cure. Ziggy was buried with his best friend Boomerang, our cattle show dog that died. Why would I tell you this story? It is because there are hundreds of feral cats in our neighborhood. And many who feed them illegally. I have called and reported them. They are usually warned and that is all. They even understand the law after it being explained to them that they can feed the cats but not leave food out for them. I have talked to those that feed them. They tell me of the catch-neuter-release program. However, those same people that tout it only feed all feral cats and do not catch or neuter them. They regularly feed mothers with kittens and do not capture or neuter even though they say that is the program they are on. We have kittens in our sewers, in our garages and carports, and in sheds; they are raised under hedges and in woods nearby, even in my own yard! Why dont these people actually capture and neuter them? Because they dont want to pay for it or be responsible for the tests against disease that must be performed before release to assure the safety of all animals and people around them. Meet Sophie, Ziggys sister. She has been attacked at least 15 times in three months by feral cats on my property. Sophie is flighty and nervous all the time now. She is afraid to be alone on our property. Her sister Sonia (a domesticated adopted feral cat) tries to protect her but usually Sophie has already been scratched and hurt before Sonia arrives and chases the vicious intruder away. These attacks usually happen within a few feet of our back door. At times the intruder will not leave, even when I challenge the intruder. These feral animals are vicious to pets, period. I have captured at least eight of these vicious feral animals in the last couple of months. The last attack was so vicious that I got out my rifle to end it. The intruder left as I approached with the rifle. Yes, I would have fired the rifle aiming to kill in order to protect my property and pets. I will use lethal force to protect my property and pets as allowed under Florida law if it ever comes to it. How many hundreds or even thousands of household pets have to die in this county from these diseased feral felines? When will we see a system that actually eradicates and ends this entire problem? A problem that was caused by well meaning cat lovers who were irresponsible and uninformed? Thank you for your time and effort in reading this review of facts and considerations before making any change to the current laws and for working for the people of this county rather than a small fervent group that is generally uninformed and wrong in their thought process. Dirk Jeanis ClearwaterRude officials need wake-up calls.Re: Parents upset over park incident, by Brian Goff, Belleair Bee, June 27Editor: I would like to first say that I agree with the parents. I have lived in Indian Rocks Beach for three years now. I have had several encounters with local law enforcement and most, not all, of them have what I like to call The Barney Fife Syndrome. A small town cop with a nasty attitude and a control problem that picks on the locals because there is nothing better to do. In other words, those of us who attempt to help the local cops. I am a nurse of 30 years. I have encountered every kind of personality from the sweetest granny to prison inmates who have committed murder. No matter what your job, no matter what you do, respect is earned. That goes for cops and city officials, too. You dont get my respect because you have a badge or a title. And please do not try to instill fear in me with your big, bad look and voice. Seriously? I think that because policemen and women and city officials have to assume some kind of authoritative persona to get the job done, they morph into this higher than mighty power that has a free ticket to talk to everyone like a guilty little child. I pay taxes. I work. I take care of people. I dont commit crimes. I am a grown adult. I raised good kids. I call the police and report things I believe are suspicious. I respect the profession because they do not get paid enough to risk life. I have assisted the local police in trying to keep IRB safe. Never once did I hear a thank you. They are so condescending and thankless. Sometimes, police officers become jaded and adopt the justice system mentality everyone is guilty until proven innocent. I hope these attitude issues are truly investigated but I dont hold much faith in that. Rarely do you truly see the police throw one of their own under the bus. In the nursing field, we have a term called P.R.N. It means as needed. For example, if my patient has a headache he can have Tylenol P.R.N. for pain. I think that the average citizen should be able to administer a small dose of cattle prod P.R.N. to unnecessarily rude officials. A mini-prod just a little zappp nothing life threatening just a little wake up call, if you will. And once you are awake, I will have your full attention to ask you: Did your mother ever teach you manners? How to treat your customers? You get my respect when you earn it. And I expect nothing less from you. I am from Kentucky. We are nice there. We look out for and help one another. We appreciate a smile and a helping hand. Its a shame that rarely happens with the leaders and cops of IRB. And, just for the record, who do these city officials and representatives think pay their paychecks. Elizabeth Royse Indian Rocks BeachRelocate dolphin statue Editor: The recent addition of the dolphins statue to the Pier 60 Park begs the question: Why wasnt this done sooner? However, the statue is too small and transparent to be noticed where it sits today, since its made from a steel wire mesh. About the only thing that can and should be done for the statue now is to elevate it by placing it on a pedestal and moving it to the roundabout where it would command the center of attention there. Also, a larger bronze statue would have looked much better there instead. Youd think someone there at City Hall would have thought of this beforehand? Michael Maribona Clearwater Some Independence Day salutesThis week as we tip our hats to Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Tom Paine, Woody Guthrie and other worthies, Id like to salute a few persons and things that might not otherwise make the Top Ten list of July 4 notables. WOMEN WHO PRODUCE HOMEMADE POTATO SALAD. If youve ever labored for several messy, tension-wracked days to come up with your version of the perfect holiday potato salad, youll know why I think so highly of you. Throughout America this week we will scarf down millions of hot dogs, hamburgers and other undistinguished, easily forgotten July 4 menu items. But standing close behind the picnic tables will be women (and some male cooks, too) who have knocked themselves out to set forth a quality of potato salad whose flavor and texture deserve a 21-gun salute. These women will be hoping for only one thing: a single word or two of praise from anyone who has sampled the potato salad and found it superlative. If you know anyone who fits this description, please clip this column and give it to her (or him) with my compliments. THE OLD GUY COLOR GUARDS. These are the men, usually 50-plus in age and overweight, who on every July 4 come forward and volunteer to serve as color guards in the town parade. They put on their American Legion or VFW hats, spend maybe half an hour rehearsing close order drill commands, and then step out, with their rifles at the ready and Old Glory held high, and lead the town band down Main Street. They may not stay quite in step with the music, but they are by God proud of their flag and country, both the way it used to be and the way it is today. I love those old guys. I would rather watch them march than see a West Point drill team. BRIEF SPEAKERS. Most July 4 ceremonies have one or more featured speakers. The best ones are those men and women who talk for five or six minutes and then step down. Abe Lincoln did that at Gettysburg, and our nation has honored him ever since. Youd think more speakers would take the hint. Id die happy if one day I could be in the audience on July 4 and the guest speaker simply recited his own special recipe for potato salad. SINGERS WHO RESPECT OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM by rendering it straight, without any extraneous jazz, jive, warbles, quavers or other stylistic trimmings. I dont care if the performer is world famous for rock, rap, country-western, disco or opera. The StarSpangled Banner doesnt need or deserve vocal embroidery. The soprano Lucy Monroe knew that. I grew up listening to her sing at the New Yorks World Fair and at New York Yankee games. She sang the national anthem in public an estimated 5,000 times, but she refused to do it when she visited our troops overseas in wartime. Her explanation: Theyre living it. JOHN PHILIP SOUSA. Independence Day would go on even if Sousa The March King had not been born, but the music would surely be less exciting. His musical career was sort of an accident. As a young man, he wanted to join a circus band. His father, horrified, ushered him into the Marine Corps, which quickly made use of young Sousas musical talents. Besides Stars and Stripes Forever and other memorable marches, Sousa composed several operas and three novels. He also became known as the father of American trapshooting. Quite a guy, deserving of our salute on July 4 and throughout the year. CITIZENS WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH U.S. HISTORY and who love our country both for overcoming its defects as well as for its glories. By all rights, the U.S. shouldnt have made it this far. Anyone who studies our Revolution knows that at several points the rebellion against Great Britain was a hairs breadth from foundering. We drafted a constitution that legitimized slavery, and paid for those actions years later with a civil war whose polarizing effects are still being felt. We opened the doors of freedom to millions of foreign immigrants, even as we systematically cheated and deprived our own Native Americans of their rights and their lands. During two world wars our fighting men and women helped to defeat wrongful aggression, but in other conflicts we have clearly been on the wrong side. My point in this partial litany is this: for the past 237 years America has been a land of high aims and heartbreaking fallibility, of heroes and scoundrels alike. But somehow we have made it work, and have made it endure. So this week, as we render our salutes, lets not forget to salute ourselves.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Spy, whistle-blower, hero and celebrity By SUZANNE FIELDSEditors note: Debra J. Saunders is off. The following column is by Suzanne Fields.Bling Ring is a hot new movie about celebrity in our time, all flash and bang, set in Hollywood to rework the mangled clich that almost anybody can get 15 minutes of fame if theyre light enough to float, perverse, and (if female) pretty and skinny enough. Theres a need to know the right labels, ZIP codes, trends and fashions, and you have to know how to appeal to ignorant adolescents who think they know more than they do. (Thats quite a long list.) The movie is about five high school students who actually burglarized a string of homes of the rich and famous in Tinseltown. Paris Hilton, one of the burgled, appears in a cameo role and felt good enough about it to let the moviemakers use her house as a set. The camera found her many closets stuffed with couturier dresses, designer pocketbooks and Louboutin shoes. The rooms were littered with prominently placed pillows on sofas and chairs decorated with life-size photographs of her face. If she doesnt get an Oscar nomination for supporting actress, maybe she can get one for best-set decoration. Fame is fickle, and the gods of celebrity take it away as quickly as they confer it. Edward Snowden, the uber-celebrity of the moment, seems about to be exiled from his celebrity to suffer in a friendless and alien land reserved for the loneliness of the longdistance leaker. Bling Ring illustrates the observation of Clive James, in his television documentary about fame in the 20th century, that when the century started, famous people were still required, as of old, to do something first and then get famous for it later. As the century progressed, people who became famous for what they did got more famous just for being famous. In the 21st century, social media updates ambitions of fame with high tech displays of the grand and gossamer. The young burglars in Bling Ring not only planned their exploits on the Internet, assisted with facts from Google and GPS house maps, but also exposed themselves with their loot in photographic boasts on Facebook. After they were found guilty and on the way to prison, hundreds of fans wanted to be Facebook friends. Behind the tinseled surfaces, a theme emerges in the movie version of amoral youth, untutored, unmoored and inexperienced in anything beyond flash, flesh and filigree, and we are their static spectators. Theres no irony or judgment; spectacle takes precedence over action, character, diction or thought. Aristotle would not approve. Bling Ring coincides with the release of another movie, This is the End, a satire of young famous male stars who play themselves at the very moment the apocalypse arrives; they watch the newly dead ascend to heaven or sink into the fiery furnace. The movie suggests the end of narcissistic male movies like this one, and perhaps the end of the hyperbolic doom-and-gloom preaching about the end of the world as we know it like global warming, although that may be giving Al Gore too much credit. Both films testify to the growing urge to demolish todays celebrity, exposing the depth of the shallows of the popular culture. One of the guilty burglar-girls, schooled in the jargon of the new age, says her crimes have been a huge learning experience and shes sure they will help her grow into the leader for good works in the world. She tells Vanity Fair, in the article on which Bling Ring was based, that she identifies with Angelina Jolie, even stronger, pushing even harder for the universe and for peace and for the health of out planet. She wants to do something that people will notice: I want to lead a huge charity organization. From the intersection of politics and culture, the scene of endless traffic jams, we see the sloppy self-righteousness of political celebrity writ large. We see Edward Snowden, a 30-year-old technology geek clever with computers crowned as a champion of derringdo, admired for breaking his oath and revealing national security secrets. An online petition seeking a pardon for his crimes went to the White House with more than a hundred thousand names on it. Thousands in a poll said they consider him a national hero. Weve made treason cool, New York Post columnist Ralph Peters tells Fox & Friends. He wants to be the national security Kim Kardashian. A celebritys celebrity, you might say. One tweeter (or is that twitterer?) parodying Snowdens ambivalent voice as traitor, spy and hero, concludes, I am in dire need of attention, thats for sure. That sounds about right.

To raise money for the Clearwater High School football team, former Buccaneer cornerback and newly appointed Head Coach Donnie Abraham organized the Clearwater Football Celebrity Golf Tournament, which will take place at 7 a.m. at the Bardmoor Golf and Tennis Club, 8001 Cumberland Road, Largo. Abraham worked in conjunction with the Tornado Touchdown Booster Club to plan the event. Amanda Wood, president of the club, said the group supplements what the Pinellas County School Board doesnt cover, such as Gatorade and meals before the football games. Abraham said hosting a golf tournament made sense because he and a lot of people in Florida enjoy playing golf. The tournament will feature other former Buccaneers and coaches who will play with participants; Abraham said he is hoping Ronde Barber will confirm. I talked to a bunch of guys and Im still trying to get them confirmed, he said. I do have 10 or so players who said they will be committed. Abraham said he would like to garner between $5,000 and $15,000 to pay for new equipment for the football team, such as uniforms, shoulder pads, helmets and end zone cameras. Kyminda Lehman, an organizer for the event, said if there is money left over from the tournament it will go toward a new football stadium. The stadium itself was condemned by the county early this year because of methane gas leaks under the stadium ... Were trying to replace the field itself, she said. Thats going to depend on how much money we raise. All of our money typically goes right to the team as far as equipment and workout gear. However, if we get lucky and raise lots of money and have lots of good sponsors, were going to use the money to fund the stadium rebuild. Abraham hopes to consistently raise $15,000 from the tournament each year, but for now, hes happy the event is being implemented in general. Just us being able to put on the event is already a success, he said. Since he became the new head coach for Clearwater High School, Abraham said he visited the campus every day and interacted with the students. Im more familiar with the campus now, he said. Ive been there every day, trying to get things turned around. I go to the lunches every day. I interact and mingle with the guys. If I get an email about a student, I go check on them and talk with the teacher. Ive been very involved and plan on continuing being involved. He said the football program at Clearwater High School has been down in the past two years, but that he is looking forward to a new beginning. Abraham is no stranger to coaching. He was the head coach at Gibbs High School from 2009 to 2011. He was the defensive backs coach for the Tampa Bay Storm from 2010 to 2012 and for East Lake High School from 2010 to 2011 before becoming head coach at Clearwater. He said coming to Clearwater is similar to how it was when he came to Gibbs in 2009. Both situations to me were very similar, where Im coming in and building the strong foundation, he said. When it comes to his plans for the team, Abraham said he wants to put a strong focus on academics. We have to make sure the players understand that its called student athlete for a reason, he said. The first plan is to make sure the kids are taught properly and that theres a structure and a plan I want our teams G.P.A. to go up and focus on that as well as things on the football field. A higher grade-point average, like a 2.8, will allow for more college recruiters to look at the players, he said. The higher you can get your G.P.A. up, the more schools will come for you, Abraham said. The plan is to make sure we jump on our academics and at the same time build the foundation. This is a longterm goal for me, a long-term situation for me. Abraham said he hopes members of the community will be patient during the football teams transition. Hopefully everybody will come out and support us (at the tournament), he said. Were trying to make changes in Clearwater. There are going to be setbacks whenever there is change. We hope we can get this going in the right direction. Registration will take place at 7 a.m. and the shotgun start is at 8 a.m. Bidding for the silent auction will begin at 7 a.m. and will close once the golfers have started. Prizes for the silent auction are items such as autographed sports memorabilia, vacation getaways, a weekend with a new Cadillac, a Pandora bracelet with a football charm, free dealership oil changes, gift cards, golf swing lessons, spa and salon packages and rounds of golf at various courses. The level of sponsorship will determine celebrity golf groupings and the time the application was turned in. Highly sought after celebrities will go to the highest bidder, and biddings will take place one week before the event. Once the tiered list of celebrities is finalized, it will be emailed to those who entered, along with instructions on how to bid for celebrities. To purchase tickets, visit shop.clearwatertornadofootball.com. Tickets are $125 per individual and $400 for a foursome team. The tickets include the 18-hole greens fee, cart fees, lunch and a goodie bag. For more information about tickets and the tournament, call Amanda Wood at 656-9226 or Kyminda Lehman at 403-4516.Morton Plant, Threshers unite against breast cancer Heres hoping that the weather gets back on trackLets just hope that this weekends weather is a little better than last weekend. If you were one of the few to make it out, you were most likely dodging thundershowers while trying to hide from the wind nerve racking at best. When we get these onshore wind flows like we had last weekend you really need to be on the lookout for storms all day versus the typical afternoon storms that we see this time of year. As Floridians its very easy to become overly comfortable with pending storms. With any luck the weather will get back on track and this new moon will offer a repeat at some of the solid fishing that was occurring around the last full moon. With an abundance of bait holding on some of the deep grass near the passes, look for a fast action bite with trout, ladyfish and Spanish mackerel. Target the strong part of the tide whether its the incoming or the outgoing with a variety of artificial lures and/or live pilchards. Live chumming will get the fish into a frenzy and no doubt help to put a few more fish in the boat. Free-line baits on a long shank hook with a 30 or 40 pound fluorocarbon leader. Gag grouper season opened earlier this week and most if any havent been out due to weather to bring any of those much sought after filets back home for the table. It looks as if thats all going to change with some nice weather on tap for the weekend. Depths as shallow as 20 feet are holding gags right now; however look for greater concentrations of fish to be found in the 50to 80-foot range. Live pinfish are the key to luring the big fish out from under the ledge or away from the reef.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. Fish TalesCapt.

Manatees and sea turtles were among the native wildlife seen by Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon and his crew in 1513, when he named the peninsula La Florida, land of the flowers. Ponce de Leon also designated a cluster of islands 70 miles west of Key West as Las Tortugas, because of sea turtles nesting there. As with other Florida beaches, the islands of Dry Tortugas National Park still have loggerhead, leatherback, green and hawksbill turtles coming back year after year to lay their eggs. Today, the manatee is the states designated marine mammal and the loggerhead sea turtle is the states saltwater reptile. The abundance of wildlife that Ponce De Leon and his crew witnessed when arriving on Florida shores 500 years ago still exists today, thanks to people who support conservation of species such as manatees and sea turtles, said Carol Knox, FWCs imperiled species section leader. People who voluntarily donate $5 for a manatee or sea turtle decal increase the chances that these species will be around another 500 years. The latest editions of the manatee and sea turtle decals went on sale July 1. Floridians can donate $5 to receive a decal when they are registering a vehicle or vessel, or renewing a registration, through the mail or in person at county tax collectors offices across the state. The sale of decals helps support the FWCs manatee and sea turtle research, rescue, rehabilitation, management and education efforts. Manatee and sea turtle decals also can be ordered online at www.myfwc.com/wildlifehabitats/managed/manatee/decals. Purchasing the Save the Manatee and Helping Sea Turtles Survive specialty Florida license plates also supports conservation of the species.

As the weather heats up and kids get out of school, many people will be taking to the waters to cool off and relax. Thats where the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission comes in. In addition to patrolling all of Floridas waterways, FWC staff promotes access to them by developing and maintaining boat ramps. The goal is for everyone to be able to enjoy the water safely. Each year, FWC officers rescue around 1,000 people, many of them on the water. Earlier this year, in Escambia County, two people were left hanging onto the Bob Sikes Bridge after their boat began to take on water and sink. Fortunately, two FWC officers responded and brought them safely to shore. However, not everyone is so lucky. In 2012, there were over 700 boating accidents, and 55 people tragically lost their lives as a result. FWC officers do everything they can to keep people safe, but there are also measures that boaters should take to protect themselves. Remain alert, wear a life jacket at all times and designate a sober boat operator. These three simple actions can mean the difference between a fun day on the water and a tragic one. There are many comfortable life jackets on the market today, including compact styles that automatically inflate if you hit the water. Having it stored in a bin is legal for adults, but you will be much more likely to stay afloat if youre always wearing it. Some popular waterways can get crowded at times. Ensuring that your boat operator pays close attention to the surroundings, including signage, other boats and animals, and hasnt had any alcohol are absolutely necessary to be safe. Recently, FWC officers in Duval County received a complaint of an impaired boater. When they located him, he had three children onboard and was unable to dock his boat. The officers used a rope and pulled his boat to the dock. After sobriety tests and a check of his blood-alcohol level, he was arrested for BUI and taken off the water before he could injure himself or others. If you see someone operating dangerously, putting himself or others in harms way say something! The FWCs Wildlife Alert hotline, 1-888-404-FWCC (3922), is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can report fish and wildlife law violations as well as dangerous boaters. Helping the FWC is another way to stay safe and enjoy your day on the water. Also, if you encounter any FWC officers, remember it is their job to keep people safe, and they have many ways to do that. They may put on a boating safety course for students, be called to rescue someone or in some instances, have to issue a citation. If you are out on the water, you may be stopped briefly so they can check your vessel registration and safety equipment or inspect your fishing licenses and catch. FWC officers are trained to handle public interactions with respect and humility. But you can help ensure a positive experience and even reduce the number of times you are stopped. If an FWC officer spots a boat without the proper registration, it is likely that the officer will stop it. Operating recklessly is another sure way to be stopped. Also, having all of your safety gear onboard and easily accessible not only helps in case of emergency, but it makes checks go more quickly as well. Lets work together to protect this paradise and enjoy it safely! For more information on boating access or boating safety, visit MyFWC.com/Boating.Editorial note: Protecting Paradise by Katie Purcell, Division of Law Enforcement community relations coordinator, provides a glimpse into the world of an FWC officer. Finding lost hikers, checking boaters for safety gear and teaching children about fishing and hunting are just some of the contributions they make. It will feature different topics to help co mmunicate with the public and foster the shared passion and teamwork that are vital to protecting Floridas people and beautiful natural resources for years to come.

Since 1982, Eight OClock Theatre has entertained theatergoers in the Tampa Bay area with live performances, bringing Broadway, Off-Broadway and original productions to the stage for local audiences. The theater first presented its productions in the Largo Community Center. Since 1996, productions have been presented in the Tonne Playhouse at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Winner of Best of the Bay from Tampa Bay Magazine, Eight OClock Theatre recently announced its 2013-14 performance season. All five shows offer a glimpse of the talent we are fortunate to have here in the Tampa Bay area, the brochure explains. We honor the tradition of combining those top-notch performers with the finest backstage technicians and behind-the-scenes stars to ensure a quality show from beginning to end. Eight OClock Theatres 2013-14 season features the following productions: South Pacific, with book by Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan, music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Sept. 6-22, 2013. Set on a tropical island during World War II, the musical tells the sweeping romantic story of two couples and how their happiness is threatened by the realities of war and by their own prejudices. Considered by many the finest musical ever written, the scores songs include such classics as Some Enchanted Evening, Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair, Younger Than Springtime, Bali Hai, There is Nothin Like A Dame, This Nearly Was Mine and A Wonderful Guy. Its portrayal of Americans stationed in an alien culture in wartime is as relevant today as when it first thrilled audiences in 1949. The original Broadway production won 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Libretto. The 2008 Broadway revival won seven Tonys including Best Musical Revival. The production will be directed by Linda Weir with Amy Phillips as music director and James Grenelle as choreographer. La Cage aux Folles, with book by Harvey Fierstein and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman; Nov. 1-17, 2013. After 20 years of un-wedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better or worse get a bit of both when Georges son (fathered during a one-night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right-wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the family business: Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the star performer Zaza. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as straight when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But Albin has other plans, with hilarious results. This production will be directed by Michael Newton-Brown with Emi Stefanov as music director and James Grenelle as choreographer. Thoroughly Modern Millie, with book by Richard Morris and Dick Scanlan, music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by Dick Scanlan; Feb. 28 through March 16, 2014. This fast-paced, energetic musical comedy is set in the roaring 1920s when bobbing your hair and rolling your stockings was considered daring. Millie even colors her lips! Taking place in New York City in 1922, Millie Dillmount has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. Its a New York full of intrigue and jazz a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly See MUSICALS, page 2B Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals place Grease among the worlds most popular musicals. This production will be directed and choreographed by James Grenelle. Hair, with book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, and music by Galt MacDermot; July 11-20, 2014.

Hair features a long list of chart topping hit songs, including Aquarius, Let the Sun Shine In, Good Morning, Starshine and Easy To Be Hard.

Harry KC Wayne Casey started KC & The Sunshine Band out of a Miami record store in 1973. Forty years later, his Sunshine Sound still gets audiences worldwide out of their seats and dancing. The bands brass-oriented disco flavor was developed through KCs exposure to pop, reggae and Latin music and served as the backbone to their iconic hits Get Down Tonight, Thats the Way (I Like it), and Shake Your Booty. With over 30 albums to the bands name, their music has long survived the disco era, selling over 100 million albums, and is featured on more than 200 motion picture soundtracks. Even with the bands songs played in arenas worldwide, KC has never forgotten his roots. He is proud to have never moved farther than 10 miles away from his hometown of Hialeah, saying, Why move from an area that not only do I love, but owe so much to? Nearly four decades after first gaining notoriety, KC & The Sunshine Band is still going strong and continues to perform its enduring music in venues around the country. Single game tickets for Rays 2013 regular season home games are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Rays Tampa Store at 400 N.

The critically acclaimed songwriter released her debut CD Call Me Angel for Blues in 2007. Black songs inspire with stories of life and love. Her sultry, powerful vocals weave potent tales within sumptuous melodies and rhythms. As Blacks fan base continues to grow, she performs often at major music festivals, concert halls and select venues. Her passionate live performances are intensified by the superb musicianship of her world-class band which features Dave Eichenberger on guitar, Michael Johnn on keys, Father Bill Spicuglia on bass and Frankie Timpanelli on drums. Another side of Dunedins historyPinellas residents are well aware of Dunedins proud Scottish roots. The city showcases its Scottish heritage at two annual events: The Dunedin Highland Games and the Dunedin Celtic Festival. It also celebrates its background with the annual Military Tattoo, an exhibition of marching bands, bagpipe bands, brass bands, highland dancers and more. But there is another side of Dunedins history. Like much of Pinellas, the land in and around Dunedin once was covered with seemingly endless orange groves. Several years ago, Dunedin resident and artist Steven Spathelf decided to remind people that Dunedins history is tied to those orange groves to growing citrus trees and packing crates filled with oranges bound for markets around Florida and elsewhere. The citrus industry was important to Dunedin from the late 1800s through the middle of the 20th century. The Skinner and Douglas families were huge names in this industry. As an artist, Spathelf particularly found himself drawn to the beautifully designed labels that were made to go on each side of the fruit crates. The Skinner and Douglas families of Dunedin had many such labels designed. Photo by PAULA SHOWENJulie Black headlines this years Dunedin Orange Festival July 6.

Spathelf has admired, collected and has been inspired by the deand Michael Jibson Director: Farren Blackburn Rated: R Set in Viking Britain in A.D. 871, Hammer of the Gods is a visceral, intense tale set in a world whose only language is violence. A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinars epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne.This Way, Way BackGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolph and Liam James, Amanda Peet and Rob Corddry Director: Nat Faxon and Jim Rash Rated: PG-13 The Way, Way Back is the funny and poignant coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncans (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin). Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in gregarious Owen (Sam Rockwell), manager of the Water Wizz water park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up to and begins to finally find his place in the world all during a summer he will never forget.

In 2009, Spathelf and fellow resident Marsha Goins got up early one morning, stealthily invaded the downtown area and secretly painted a series of loose oranges around the district in an attempt to remind city residents about the importance of citrus. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and the scheme quickly led local merchants to create a festival revolving around the concept. With the help of the Dunedin Historical Museum and the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce, the Dunedin Orange Festival was born. The inaugural event was presented July 3, 2010. The Dunedin Orange Festival serves as a fundraiser for the Dunedin Historical Society and The Dunedin Chamber Foundation. The fourth annual Orange Festival proceeds will help enable the Dunedin Historical Museum to follow its mission to educate and preserve the communitys rich cultural heritage. Funds are used to maintain educational programming such as museum exhibits, traveling exhibits to local schools and community centers and create exciting projects for summer camp students. These programs directly serve and benefit the students and community of Dunedin. For information, visit duned inorangefestival.com.
