This is part 1 of a five-part series on operations at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office receives taxpayer money from county government for three primary missions law enforcement, corrections and judicial operations. Sheriff Bob Gualtieri spent most of the day June 5 presenting an operational overview to help county commissioners better understand the job and cost of providing public safety services. County Administrator Bob LaSala explained that the meeting was a continuation of strategic planning started during the winter of 2012 to explore ways to provide maximum delivery of core services. The commission has been taking deep dives into different areas. Last year, the subject was community development. This year attention turns to public safety. Its a big undertaking. Understanding what we do, Gualtieri said. But hes willing to engage in dialogue that benefits us all. The Sheriffs Office has a good working relationship with the board and I want that to continue, he said, adding that not all sheriffs offices get along with their county leaders. State law provides a unique relationship between sheriffs and county government. You set funds you have no control over (for the constitutional office of sheriff). Me, Im responsible for public safety but cant raise a dime, he said. Gualtieri began his presentation with a brief look at the history of the county sheriffs office, which started in 1912 when bootlegging, moonshining and gambling were daily occurrences. Up until the 1950s, deputies drove their own cars, wore plain clothes and carried their own weapons. There was no centralized jail. Since that time, the sheriffs office has grown into a large organization with more than 2,700 members who work in five major service bureaus patrol operations, detention and corrections, investigative operations, support services and inspections bureau. PCSO is the 15th largest sheriffs office in the United States. The sheriff is an elected position and part of the executive branch of government.

TORRES and SUZETTE PORTER CLEARWATER Instead of ruling on Largos request July 9, Pinellas County Commissioners decided to give the city, along with owner of the Briarwood Recreational Vehicle Park, more time to help the RV parks remaining residents find an affordable place to live. The current owner of the Briarwood property needs the countys approval to reclassify the 13.8-acre site from its current future land use designation to residential high in order to build a planned 260-unit apartment complex. The new designation would allow as many as 30 units per acre on the property enough to build the market-rate apartment buildings, up to four stories high, that the developers have proposed. But the new development would displace about 50 remaining residents who still call the RV park at 2098 Seminole Blvd. their permanent home. County commissioners are concerned that those residents may have no place to move and could become homeless. Im really concerned about the people left, said Commissioner John Morroni. In this economy, it is not the time to put people on the streets. Largo Commissioner Harriet Crozier, who attended the morning meeting, helped recap the countys decision during Largos evening meeting July 9. She explained that both Largo officials and the attorney representing the property owner began to realize that they didnt have enough supportive votes from the county board to pass the designation change. After much discussion, Attorney Ed Armstrong suggested delaying the decision for 30 to 60 days in order to work with city staff to set up a relocation fund administered by the county, if that would satisfy the Group awards Largo Eagle ScoutThe Clearwater chapter of the Florida Society of the Sons of the American Revolution presented Matthew Galiano with an Eagle Scout Certification of Recognition on June 22 at his Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony at St. Paul United Methodist Church. ...

Cottage Shoppes promote shop local campaign By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Debbie Jetters idea was a simple one: unite the unique and locally owned shops in northeast Largo and Belleair Bluffs to create a network of small businesses that supported and promoted one another. Cottage Shoppes Along the Shore is the resulting group of 14 storeowners who jumped at the chance for their own shop local campaign. As a group, they sell everything from antique, French, shabby and country home furniture and dcor, florals, gifts and even coffee, yogurt and lunch. Almost all of us do one-ofkind things, Jetter said. The stores range as far south as Walsingham Road, west to Indian Rocks Road, north as far as Antique Alley in Belleair Bluffs and East Bay Drive and Missouri Avenue to the east. Jetter explained that Cottage Shoppes form a full circuit and could represent several days of exploring. I tried to choose shops that kind of made a little circle so women can make a shopping day of it, she said. I wanted to keep it mostly retail, but when youre shopping, you have to stop for coffee or lunch or something, especially if you want to keep going. On the front counter of Jetters shop, Country Porch Antiques & Country Dcor, Jetter displays bright pink pamphlets that feature a list of the Shoppes and a map, as do all of the participating stores. At this day and time, its very tough for small business.

CALENDAR, from page 3Athe citizens not the county commission. The most recognizable function is law enforcement, Gualtieri said. By state law, the sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer of the county conservators of the peace. Sheriffs also are responsible to serve legal process from the courts, such as writs, warrants, subpoenas and other legal documents. The county commission delegated authority to the sheriff to manage and operate the county jail. Those responsibilities are not the sheriffs by state law or county charter. The Pinellas County Jail is the 28th largest in the United States. The sheriff is responsible for more than 3,000 inmates on a daily basis. Nearly 50,000 are booked into the jail each year. No city jails exist, and the jail on 49th Street in Clearwater is required to accept all prisoners from city police departments. In the old days there were city jails, Gualtieri said. Thats no more. Theres just one jail now. The sheriffs budget for fiscal year 2013 is $213,320,410 or 46.3 percent of general fund expenditures. Of that total, $82,835,435 is allocated to law enforcement, $112,791,663 for detention and corrections. and $17,693,312 for judicial operations. Gualtieri pointed out that only 21.8 percent of the budget goes to services he is mandated by law to provide. The remainder pays for the jails, which is the responsibility of the commission. Im the management company for detention and corrections, he said. He said people should know how much of the budget goes to detention and corrections as opposed to law enforcement. Its a huge part of the budget. I wanted to point it out, he said. PCSO provides security for five county courthouses and 50 sitting judges. More than 100,000 people pass through the courthouses each day. The local sheriffs office also provides countywide services for sexual predator and offender tracking; flight services (helicopters and plane); civil process, violent offender warrants; marine unit and child protection investigations. At the end of the day, the responsibility that is No. 1 is making sure Pinellas County stays safe, everyone stays very safe, he said. We have a very safe community overall. He talked about his agencies triple accreditation international and national law enforcement, corrections and healthcare. PCSO is one of only 47 to receive a Triple Crown Award. The agency was first accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Inc. in 1988, the American Correctional Association in 1984 and the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare in 1987.Organizational structureNext, Gualtieri talked about PCSOs organizational structure. Bureaus are at the top and the biggest. Divisions come next, then sections and units. Captains are in charge of divisions, lieutenants command sections, and sergeants oversee the units. The rank of corporal is an appointed position that designates supervision for specific programs and is not a permanent promotion, he explained. The chain of command starts with the sheriff, followed by the chief deputy, majors, captains, lieutenant, sergeant, corporal and deputy. The sheriff is responsible for service in unincorporated Pinellas as well as the 13 cities that contract its services. PCSO is responsible for public safety for 382,428 people, or 42 percent of the population. Gualtieri said there have been talks about contract services with Kenneth City and Treasure Island, but city leaders have not been favorable toward disbanding their city police departments. Treasure Island said no June 4 to a request to ask the sheriff for a bid. Contracting police services for the city would take referendum approval to disband the police department. Treasure Island leaders admitted the move could save money. Any city that contracts with us will get as good as or better than they have now and save a boat load of money, Gualtieri said. He said Kenneth City paid $1.2 million of its $2 million budget on police services. We could do it for $400,000, Gualtieri said. He said contracting services to cities was the right thing to do where we can, where it is appropriate. He said cities were reluctant due to concerns of future price increases and a loss of small town service. Gualtieri said the service a city would receive is specified in the contract. We do whatever they want, he said. As long as they tell us what they want, theyll get it. The city of Seminole has never had a police department, he said. Deputies always have been assigned to police that city. Currently, 10 of the countys 24 municipalities have their own police departments. The Belleair Police Department serves a population of 1,550 and is the smallest. St. Petersburg police is the largest, serving 247,673 people. Clearwater follows with a population of 107,906, Largo with 77,836, Pinellas Park serving 49,653, Tarpon Springs with 23,767, Gulfport with 12,016, Treasure Island serving 23,767, Kenneth City with 4,949 and Indian Shores with a population of 3,549. The sheriffs office and municipal police are not the only police agencies in Pinellas. Bay Pines VA has its own police, as does Pinellas County Schools. The state Department of Agriculture has police that may do work in Pinellas, as well as the Department of Corrections, state Environmental Protection Agency, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Highway Patrol and Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. The University of South Florida has its own campus police. Gualtieri recently talked to the school district about taking over law enforcement services. The school board refused to put the matter on the agenda.Dispatch servicesGualtieri talked about the upcoming consolidation with the county to provide dispatch services. Currently, PCSO has 67 communications personnel that provide dispatch services to the sheriffs primary service areas as well as Gulfport, Kenneth City, Belleair and Indian Shores. Treasure Island was added to the list on July 13. The new consolidated communications center is scheduled to open on Feb. 15, 2014. The sheriff and the county still will maintain separate staff, but calltaking functions will be merged to eliminate the need to transfer 911 calls. The sheriff expects to relinquish call-taking responsibilities by March 2015. Im excited about it, Gualtieri said. Its the right thing to do to consolidate for efficiency and a more effective product. The sheriff wants other municipalities to follow his lead. I hope other cities join us, he said. This has been a long time coming.Speeding motorcyclist crashes into carLARGO A speeding motorcyclist popped a wheelie before crashing into a silver two-door car on Missouri Avenue July 8, Largo police reported. Witnesses told police that the motorcyclist identified as Jonathon Parris, 18, of Largo was speeding north on Missouri Avenue and doing wheelies right before the crash, which occurred at around 9:28 p.m. Thats probably why the driver didnt see him, said department spokesman Sgt. George Edmiston. Annie Booth, 42, of Clearwater was driving west on Auburn Street when Parris motorcycle crashed into her car, hitting the car on the drivers side, behind the back wheel. Parris suffered apparent bone fractures but was wearing his helmet, according to personnel at the scene. He was transported to the hospital via ambulance. His condition was reported stable, Edmiston said. The crash is still under investigation, Edmiston said. Northbound Missouri Avenue was closed while police investigated the scene that night. No one has been citied or charged. Photos by STEVEN HIRSCHFIELDLargo police and firefighters investigate the scene at Missouri Avenue and Auburn Street after a motorcycle crashed with a car July 8. Above, the motorcycle left on the roadway. At left, the two-door car was damaged on the rear of drivers side. concerns of the board. The hearing will resume Tuesday, Aug. 6. Crozier said she felt the county commissioners didnt trust Largo to honor with their commitment to find the Briarwood residents new homes. Even though I stood there and I told them, We are not going to let this falter, she said. In six months, a lot of good work had gone into helping (the residents) and assisting them. The developer has gone way above and beyond. The Largo-based company Dockside Investors purchased the Briarwood property out of foreclosure. Briarwoods previous owner was an absentee landlord who didnt prevent tenants from making their homes parked on what is designated a temporary camping ground, not a mobile home park more permanent. The citys partnership with Dockside Investors began as the city considered annexing the wooded property, near the intersection of Seminole Boulevard and Ulmerton Road, last year. In August, Largo commissioners approved an annexation agreement that would cap development of the land at 19 units per acre, allowing the exact amount of apartments intended. That cap was reiterated in a development agreement, which added the assurance that any future changes would have to be approved in a public hearing, giving nearby leery residents a chance to voice any potential objections. In approving that agreement in May, city commissioners urged staff to do everything they could to help the developers relocate the residents, many of whom described their respective plights to the commission during the citys hearing. Carol Strickland, Largo community development director, assured county commissioners that those efforts were ongoing. She said the property owner had shown real commitment in the relocation plans. County Commission Chair Ken Welch said he had toured the park on Monday and noticed there were a number of RVs that could not be moved. There are quite a few folks still there, he said. County commissioners questioned why the relocation plan wasnt part of the developers agreement. Strickland said City Attorney Alan Zimmet had advised against it, as it is really the citys commitment to relocate the people. Zimmet also had questioned whether the varying needs of the residents could be delineated in a development agreement. Commissioner Susan Latvala said she supported the countywide plan amendment. My concern is for people with no place to go, she said. Commissioner Janet Long talked about the cost of moving, including electric, water and other deposits on top of rent. It really adds up, she said. Commissioner Karen Seel also talked about the fees and the difference in assistance available for people displaced from a mobile home park versus a RV park. Armstrong said his client, the parks owner, had done everything needed by law to satisfy requirements for the countys approval of a land use change. The elephant in the room is the residents, he said. He said the commission they should judge only the land use change. He said while concerns about the residents showed a great humanitarian effort, they werent legally viable. He introduced Tina Harper, Briarwoods property manager, who has been working to help residents. She said about 36 RVs were still located on the property. Two are being towed out at our expense to another RV park today, she said. She talked about her personal commitment to help residents find a place to live. Im very committed to this and have spent hours and hours reaching out to them, she said. Harper has located a grant from RCS to help people who are able to move during the month of July, which would help them cover deposits. The park also is refunding one months rent to people who move. Harper has located several comparable RV parks with low rent willing to accept Briarwood residents. She said Briarwood had even donated an RV to one renter. He is moving today, she said. She said people should move during July if possible because RV park owners who have vacant spaces told her that the snowbirds would begin returning in August. About 50 adults are left in the park. I dont want to force people into homelessness, Welch said. Where are the teeth in this to make sure this happens? Armstrong said it was the city of Largos responsibility to work with the developer to address those types of issues. Im not sure it is the countys to administer, he said. Youre grappling with a serious social issue manifesting as part of a land use plan. He said he didnt see the linkage. Its all connected, Welch said. If we approve this, we want to make sure theyre not displaced. Its not legally relevant, Armstrong argued. But out of respect for your concern, well address the concern to be constructive and proactive about a social issue. We just want to make sure the last 50 have a place to go, Welch said. Several residents spoke to the commission about their hardships. Christine Allamanno, a lawyer with Gulfcoast Legal Services spoke on behalf of her clients, who she said were living on assistance of $700 to $800 a month. She said the average moving expense was $1,200. We need to have a serious discussion about how to help these folks, Seel said. I dont want to contribute to one more homeless person, Morroni added. In my heart, I just cant do it. He talked about past rezoning cases where the commission did not consider the residents. I dont want to see even one person on the streets, he said. He admitted that Briarwoods property owners had done more to help residents than others had. But in light of todays conditions, we need to do more, he said. After Armstrong suggested continuing the matter in order to set up the county relocation fund, Latvala objected. She said the move was setting a precedent. A lot of homeless need what were offering, she said. This is a category of people no one wants to talk about. Welch disagreed. This last set of people is different, he said. Lets get this funded and get them relocated. Were on the right path. Crozier said she was disappointed that the county didnt ask about the developers negotiations with the city to make the complex as amendable as possible to the lower density residential neighborhoods that surround it. The preliminary site plan for the complex places the apartment buildings toward the interior of the property, away from the townhomes and mobile homes to the north. The property is designed so that parking and landscaping provides an extra buffer between the apartments, allowed at a maximum of 70 feet high, and the established residences. Crozier said there should be no reason for the county to not trust Largo, but added that the city would be prepared in time for the next public hearing. When we go back on Aug. 6, we know what theyre going to hit us on. We know how to address it. It will be corrected, she said. The problem is (the Briarwood owners) do have residents who stay there that dont want to move, and theres not much more we can do. Prior to the countys hearing, the Pinellas Planning Council voted 10-0 to recommend the land use change with three conditions, including limiting the vehicle entrance on 20th Terrace Southwest for emergency vehicles only. The only access to the complex would be from Seminole Boulevard. County staff also supports the land use change. Seel talked about the traffic at the intersection of Seminole Boulevard and Ulmerton Road. Strickland said the city was working with the Florida Department of Transportation as part of the Ulmerton Road improvement project. Strickland said the traffic issue was not part of the development agreement because it is part of the citys process. BRIARWOOD, from page 1A SHERIFF, from page 1A SHOPPES, from page 1Ait makes it even harder, said Julie Papalardo. Papalardo has owned her silk flower store, Julies Cottage at Provence, since 1998 and explained that the Cottage Shoppes network is a welcome idea. Lets all come together and be one presence instead of like a whole bunch of little people out on our own. Thats what were trying to do, she said. We have some great things that happen on this side of town, and we just want more people to know about it. Cathy Ottaviani has owned Provence Art & Antiques since 1994 and said she appreciates the collaborative nature of the group. She said shes seen other such networks fail because members didnt want to promote each other. They didnt want to network because they were afraid that business would be taken from them, she said. Jetter said it was important for the group to have well established businesses and newer ones like her own, which opened only 14 months ago. Weve got some old blood and new blood. It isnt just newbies that are trying to get together to get advertising out there, she said. Among the new blood are Joy Madden and Patti Quinn, gradeschool friends who opened a flower shop 10 months ago called Petal & Vine Garden Shop and Market. Its a totally new adventure for us, Madden said. The network helps the individuals in organic ways. If some of Papalardos silk flowers customers are looking for fresh arrangements, she can send them to Petal & Vine and vice versa. Its all about building word-of-mouth promotion. A lot of what I have enjoyed is the personal relationships, Madden said. People come in and theyll stop, and you may talk to them for 20 minutes. They may not buy anything. But chances are, theyre coming back. Next time, they have two friends with them, Papalardo said. Sometimes, hearing that just the atmosphere of the shop has been therapeutic is one of the greatest compliments, she explained. While the idea has been several months in the making, the Cottage Shoppes Along the Shore have been actively promoting themselves with the brochures for only about four weeks. The feedback so far has been encouraging. Some people tell me theyre not aware of some of the shops that are on the brochure, Jetter said. After the winter residents leave, the summer tends to be slower for small shops in Florida. But the season allows the time for the shops to try something new, like a self-promotion network targeted at local customers. Thats what my goal is: to increase my base of local people, so I dont have to starve through the summer and pray for winter to get here, Jetter said. These days, small shops are experiencing increasing competition from big box stores that can sell items cheaper than the shops can even buy them, Papalardo said. But theyre going to walk out with it in a big plastic bag. No ones going to help you. No ones going to say, Hey, what if you put this with that? But the price the price we cant compete with, she said. Yet items bought at local shops are unique and built to last. For example, Ottaviani repurposes some of the furniture she sells along with the antiques. A couple of times, people will come in and theyll say to me, Remember when I bought that table back like, 10 years ago? I still have it! she explained. There are some things where you can duplicate an idea, but you really cant duplicate it, her daughter Andrea Ottaviani added. Getting customers to notice your store requires a little more these days. Its hard to just put a sign on the road and say Here we are. You have to take the extra effort, Papalardo said. And the word-of-mouth promotion gained through an effort like the Shoppes can be a lot more effective than a sign, Jetter said.

Pinellas County sheriffs deputies arrested William C. Wilson, 47, of Pinellas Park. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and charged with two-counts of burglary to an occupied dwelling and violation of community control supervision probation. No bond was set on the probation violation. Bond was $20,000 each for the burglary charges. Wilson is a career criminal, deputies said. He was released from prison in November of 2012 after serving 20 years of a 30-year sentence for armed burglary. He was on conditional release and under community supervision. According to the sheriffs report, Wilson arrived at the home on Arcadia Drive in Palm Harbor on a scooter just after noon. He rang the doorbell, and when no one answered, he parked the scooter in a nearby plaza. He then pried open the kitchen window and started filling a duffel bag with coins, video games and jewelry. When Angelina Scisco, 13, realized someone was breaking into the home, she hid in a bedroom closet and called her mom, who called 911. Deputies responded to the call about 12:24 p.m. When deputies arrived, Wilson was still inside the residence. When he realized deputies had pulled up near the front of the house, he fled out the back door. A witness flagged down the deputy and showed him the direction Wilson had traveled. The deputy chased Wilson on foot and saw him enter the lanai area of another occupied residence on Longleaf Lane. The deputy watched Wilson try to enter the home through the sliding glass door. The deputy challenged the suspect and pointed an electronic control device at him until backup deputies arrived and secured the suspect. Wilson was arrested at 12:34 p.m.Seminole man dies in July 6 crashST. PETERSBURG A Seminole man died and two others were injured in a one-vehicle crash about 2:26 a.m. July 6 on the northbound exit ramp of I275 to State Road 686. According to a report from Florida Highway Patrol, Jared Sam Demontimorency, 29, had been driving his 2009 Chevrolet pickup truck north on I275 before exiting on the ramp to S.R. 686 to go west to 118th Street North. Demontimorency lost control of the truck when negotiating the curve on the exit ramp. When the truck reached the shoulder of the roadway, it overturned multiple times and collided with the barrier wall on the inside shoulder of the overpass. Demontimorency nor his two passengers were wearing seatbelts, and he along with a passenger in the front seat were ejected from the truck. All three were transported to Bayfront Medical Center where he died. Michelle Marie Demontimorency, 24, of Seminole, suffered serious injuries, and Gary Arthur Mygdal, 24, of Seminole, suffered critical injuries. The crash is under investigation. No charges were filed. Results of alcohol tests were pending at the time of the report.Man arrested in Seminole carjacking caseSEMINOLE A St. Petersburg man was booked into the Pinellas County Jail July 1 on charges of carjacking, attempted carjacking and felony fleeing and eluding. According to a report from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, the suspect, Anthony Eugene Sutton, 37, first attempted a carjacking just after 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Sweetbay Supermarket, 10370 Seminole Blvd., in Seminole. Detectives said the victim, Michelle Hingley, 54, of Largo was getting out of her car with her children when Sutton approached and pointed a gun at her. Hingley was able to run away with her children and the keys to her vehicle. Sutton then approached the vehicle of Gerald Kolar, 82, of Seminole, who was parked just outside the Sweetbay waiting for his wife to come out of the store. Detectives said the suspect approached the drivers side tapped on the window, pointed a gun at Kolar and ordered him out of the car. Kolar complied andExplorer Post 900 wins championshipLARGO The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post 900 recently won the State Competition Championship at the Florida Association of Police Explorers competition in Crystal River June 24-28. Competing against 31 other law enforcement explorer posts from Florida, Pinellas Countys Team Alpha received the overall championship trophy. The state team was comprised of Explorer Capt. Kyle Hughes, Explorer Lt. Spencer Shaw, Explorer Lt. Melinda Mujidzic and Explorer Sgt. Paige Boldt. They received a first place trophy in the Crisis Intervention event, second place trophy in the In-progress event and fourth place trophies in the Traffic Stop, Traffic Crash and Arrest and Search events. The Search and Arrest event involved the teams response to a call about a suspicious person at a school after hours and was caught in the act of planting bombs at the school. The in-progress event involved a homeless man found in a closed business who turned out to be deaf and a mute. The crisis intervention event involved an incident at a school between a mother and her daughter that included a teacher being battered. The traffic crash event involved a collision between a vehicle and a school bus. The traffic stop event required the team to complete several citations. The team consistently reacted to every challenge using the officer safety and investigative techniques they received during their training. It was also imperative for members of the team to use good communication skills and have an understanding of Florida statutes. The Post 900 Pistol Team was also victorious at the competition. Hughes, Shaw, Explorer Sgt. Elizabeth Vogt and Explorer Cpl. Kristen Crooks placed fourth overall. Ten members of Explorer Post 900 took the opportunity to compete. Hughes took an individual shooting award of first place in the Expert division. Hughes and Explorer Kelley Butterfield were named at the top of the range masters top 10 overall shooting averages for the year. Success on the pistol range is attributed to the hours of range time provided at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Range, as well as, the instruction an encouragement of Post advisers. In addition to the pistol trophies, several post members participated in individual optional events including the Honor Guard competition, Drill Team competition, the Physical Agility competition, the Police Mountain Bike competition and the F.A.T.S. Computer Simulated event. Honor Guard members Melinda Mujidzic, Hughes, Boldt, and Connor Davis received a first place trophy.

Volunteer shows why its never too late to learn a new trick By EVAN MALLOYMark Ward spends his Tuesdays and Thursdays giving back to the community that has been his home for more than 26 years. In that time, Ward has spent the majority of his career working in purchasing. He got involved with industry shortly after high school going straight to work while others went off to college. For the past 13 years, Ward has been working specifically in the building automation industry integrating systems such as HVAC, lighting and keyless entries. During the recession, he saw so many around him lose their jobs and began to wonder what he would do in this scenario. Ward, married to Christina for 13 years, had no degree to fall back on. The couple made a decision to change this. In 2010, Ward enrolled in St. Petersburg Colleges Emergency Management program. The degree gives him the added versatility he desired as the role and scope of emergency management broadens throughout the country. For Mark, the interest in the program went deeper than that. Even as a young boy in Norfolk Virginia I always wanted to be a storm chaser, he said. Fascinated by disaster and fueled by his professors Ward graduated with his associates degree last May. While in school, Ward took advantage of an opportunity to volunteer with Pinellas County government. Mark Tobert, senior emergency management coordinator and Wards supervisor, described the volunteer program as an opportunity to save the county and taxpayers a tremendous amount of time and money while adding value to our emergency management planning efforts. Since beginning in August of last year, Ward has spent his volunteer time focusing on special projects for the Emergency Management department. He was able to locate, research, and document a number of Photo courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONS.Since beginning in August of last year, Mark Ward has spent his volunteer time focusing on special projects for the Emergency Management department.churches in evacuation routes to see if they could be a potential last resort shelter in the event of a disaster. Ward describes his role as one piece of a larger puzzle and is amazed at how everyone works together at the Emergency Operations Center. Ward is taking a year off from school to spend time with his wife and to play his favorite sport, Jai Alai. He will continue to volunteer and consider the idea of pursuing a bachelors degree in public safety. He hopes at some point the stars will align and he may be able to work full-time in the emergency management field. Until then, Ward said, I am happy to make a difference in the community that has given me so much.This article was provided by Pinellas County Communications.

Sutton fled in the victims Buick. An undercover detective subsequently spotted a vehicle matching the description in the area of Clearwater-Largo Road and Mehlenbacher Road. Marked patrol units responded to the area and a brief pursuit ensued. The sheriffs flight unit helicopter assisted and supported deputies in the pursuit. Sutton exited Kolars vehicle at Gladys Street and 19th Street in Largo. Sutton fled on foot and officers apprehended him. No injuries were reported.Police arrest suspect in bank robberies BELLEAIR Police arrested a Largo man July 7 in connection with two bank robberies. Daniel Christopher Williams, 29, 1017 16th Ave. NW, Apartment B, was charged with two counts of strong-armed robbery. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on $40,000 bond. Belleair Police Chief Tom Edwards said that a man disguised in dreadlocks and a cap on his head entered the Third Fifth Bank June 26 at 601 Indian Rocks Road and presented a note to a clerk and got cash. One of the bank clerks seems to think that the subject might have been in the bank five or six days earlier, Edwards said. Belleair police obtained a picture of the subject without the disguise from his earlier appearance. Through showing his picture around, police determined that he lived near the ClearwaterLargo Road. They also found a couple of locations where the suspect buys items, such as food and snacks. Police knew he lived in the area and after several days of surveillance, he had not returned to the store.

Egmont Key Alliance leads charge to save popular island By BOB McCLUREEGMONT KEY Theres a crisis brewing at the mouth of Tampa Bay that only a few nature conservationists and boaters are aware of. Egmont Key, a one-time 500acre gateway to Tampa Bay, is eroding away at a dangerous pace. The site of the former Fort Dade was estimated to be down to about 250 acres five years ago. Now it is estimated to be about 200 acres. Thats why the Egmont Key Alliance, an 85-member volunteer group, has gone into emergency mode to educate government leaders and the public on the plight of the popular island and nature preserve. Fortunately, the situation recently got the attention of the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers who routinely dredge the shipping channel into Tampa Bay every seven years. In the past they (Army Corps) would just take the spill and take it 20 miles out in the gulf and just dump it, said Richard Sanchez, president of the Alliance. It was the easiest and most inexpensive way to handle the spoil. But theyve committed to bringing it to Egmont. Even though it costs money, they consider it to be the best use of the sand and were desperate for it. Sanchez said efforts by former Alliance president Jim Spangler and others have led to plans to nourish the beach on the islands the same time. During the Civil War, both the Confederacy and the Union Navy used the island. Due to the Union blockade of shipping points throughout the South, Confederates were unable to get supplies and abandoned the island early on. The Union then used it as a haven for about 200 anti-slavery supporters in the Tampa Bay area. Around the time of the Spanish-American War, when Tampa was used as a staging point for U.S. Army operations, Fort Dade was built. A similar installation, Fort De Soto, was built across the shipping channel on Mullet Key, providing defense to the Tampa Bay area from the risk of a possible attack from the gulf. Both facilities never saw combat action and were closed shortly after World War I. Since the early 1990s, the Alliance has acted as the volunteer stewards of the island. Most of its members have joined because of a love for history or the environment. For Sanchez, his involvement started when a member of the Alliance approached him about six years ago at the Florida Aquarium where he was serving as a volunteer diver. Ive been a history buff for a long time but had never been to Egmont Key, said Sanchez. So Im walking around this place and thinking this is amazing Photo courtesy of RICHARD SANCHEZMembers of the Egmont Key Alliance clean a section of the beach.whats out here. I had no idea. From the red brick roads, to the remaining gun batteries and the lighthouse, he was sold. It is now a serious avocation for him, as it is for all the Alliance members. As president, Sanchez gives presentations to groups, such as the Indian Rocks Beach Boaters Association and the Anna Maria Island Library, to educate residents on the history of the island and its ecological significance. We have a contract with Egmont Key State Park to provide volunteer hours and provide, in some cases, for something that comes up that may not be budgeted for, Sanchez said. We basically do what the park ranger needs. So if he needs a fence painted, we do that. But the groups primary goal is stopping the erosion. When you talk about historic preservation and preservation of wildlife, you have to have an island there for those things to exist, said Sanchez. Longer term, were involved with restoring one of the buildings on the island, the guardhouse. The Alliance would also like to restore the lighthouse, which was altered during World War II, when an observation deck was built on top. The U.S. Coast Guard currently owns the site but is in the process of shopping it around to other agencies. Nobody knows what agency will end up with the building but Sanchez thinks it could be the Florida Division of Recreation and Parks. If so, the Alliance might be able to work out a partnership agreement. Regardless, the Coast Guard will maintain the cost of the beacon and replace it whenever necessary. For those who have never been over to Egmont Key, there is a daily ferry service from the Fort De Soto Park pier to the island. Cost is $20 per person. For information, call 867-6569.

Police found out the suspect committed a bank rTobbery at First United Bank, 1465 South Fort Harrison Ave. a month earlier. In that robbery he was dressed as a female. Police were able to call Clearwater detectives, and they charged the suspect in that case, Edwards said. Police made contact with Williams and asked him to come talk to officers at the station, where he was arrested. west side with 1.3 million cubic yards of sand in the fall of 2014. We could use three times that to get a jump on the erosion, Sanchez said. Its hard to put a dollar value on old gun batteries and bird and turtle nesting locations, but we think its a pretty important thing. Its not just the historic aspect or nature. Its all of those things. Last year, Tropical Storm Debby completely flooded the island but surprisingly, Sanchez said, there was little, if any, damage to turtle nests. Now the concern is what will happen on the southern end of the island. Theyre afraid the island may be breached all the way through (from sand washing away), said Sanchez. Its starting to get narrow and thats where the harbor pilots are. So it could end up cutting that end of the island off and create something equivalent to Passage Key that just completely disappeared. If the island is cut in half, the scouring effect would be magnified and the erosion would really pick up. In addition to home for the harbor pilots, the south end is also the site of a large bird sanctuary. Egmont Key dates back to 1858 when it was used as a staging area for transporting captured Seminole Indians to Oklahoma following the third Seminole Indian War.

DAILEYPINELLAS COUNTY Improving higher education and fighting homelessness are two of State Rep. Kathleen Peters favorite causes. But on a recent visit to the Art Institute of Tampa, a branch of Miami International University of Art and Design, the Pinellas County Republican (of South Pasadena) had a brainstorm: Why not combine the two causes? Do you do pro bono work for social causes? she asked the schools president. Of course we do, he replied. That was the genesis of a plan to have a handpicked group of outstanding AIT students design an advertising program, similar to the 1998 anti-tobacco campaign that has had some success in curtailing smoking, to dispel the myths about homelessness. We are going to start protecting our most vulnerable citizens, Peters vowed. On July 8, a press conference was held at the countys Safe Harbor homeless shelter, near the St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport, to announce the formation of a partnership between AIT and the Homeless Leadership Board of Pinellas County to change the publics perception of the homeless population. A standing-room-only crowd of county and municipal officials, AIT students and faculty, and representatives of the local print and broadcast media attended it. Homelessness is a huge problem in Pinellas County and the State of Florida, Carlen Peterson, a former Clearwater City Councilwoman who now chairs the Homeless Leadership Board, told the crowd. It doesnt look like what you see on the street corner or the park bench, Rep. Peters added. Its so much more. Peters added that for every wino passed out on a park bench, there might be several children or young families sleeping in cars or couch surfing at the homes of friends. Without the help they need, many of those people wind up in the criminal justice system and become the taxpayers problem. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said that doing everything possible to keep them out of the criminal justice system should be a no-brainer because it only costs $13 a day to keep a homeless person at the Safe Harbor shelter, but it would cost $105 a day to keep that same person in the nearby county jail. The criminal justice system should not be used as a dumping ground for a social problem, Gualtieri said. We need to address the problem of the criminalization of homelessness, Pinellas County Public Defender Bob Dillinger agreed. It doesnt work; it only creates more problems. Slowly, several speakers said, people are realizing that homelessness is not just a law enforcement problem or a social services problem; its everybodys problem. Bob Clifford, president of the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce, said that the business community is discovering that it, too, must be part of the solution. We believe the students at the Art Institute of Tampa will be creative in their messaging and the Chamber can gather the business community to support and generate resources to execute their plan, Clifford wrote in a letter to members and friends of the chamber. We dont want to put parameters on the students at this time, Rep. Peters said when asked how the AIT team would approach the project. She said that the students would interview several homeless people, and devise a plan that they will unveil four to six months from now. After that, she said, the project might go statewide. But she cautioned that this project, or any project, alone will not eliminate homelessness. Its truly going to take a village to do this, she said. It will take all of us.

The Foundation consistently achieves its organizational mission and responsibility to students and educators, as well as its responsibility to donors, supporters and volunteers.New partnership serves Pinellas childrenBig Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County is establishing a partnership with the Department of Juvenile Justice dedicated to serving more children who have incarcerated parents or guardians with a history in the justice system. Exposure to this lifestyle throughout the fragile years of childhood is critical. The partnership strives to reduce the number of at-risk youth who are more likely to repeat the sequence, said a press release from Big Brothers Big Sisters. The Department of Juvenile Justices investment will provide the funds to conduct level two screenings on prospective volunteers, help recruit Big Brothers, Big Sisters and Big Couples and provide ongoing professional support and supervision for incarceration-related matches. The partnership is expected to reduce expenditures on juvenile incarceration. The cost to house a juvenile in a residential facility for one year is $51,000. An encounter with the justice system after the age of 18 leads to another $20,000 expense to incarcerate one individual. Yet, it only costs $1,200 to make and support one Big Brothers Big Sisters match, the press release said. However, Big Brothers Big Sisters is called the nations largest volunteer and donor supported mentoring organization.

Pre-construction for the new Whole Foods Market is underway, which is by far the largest of the new stores lined up. The Whole Foods Market will take up just less than 40,000 square feet of the first floor of what is now the Sears store, said Lauren Clark, marketing director for Westfield Countryside. Currently, Sears is doing its part of the construction to prepare for Whole Foods to come in, she said. They are rearranging some of their floor sets in order to make room because they wont be losing any departments or anything like that, so its going to be a lot of adjusting that has to take place in the front of house and back of house to accommodate that, Clark said. According to a Whole Foods spokesman, there is no definite start date on construction or opening, but Howard Riefs, director of corporate communications for Sears Holding, shed some light on at least when that phase of construction will start. He also added that Sears is pleased to share its space with the market. Sears Holding has a long and successful history of value creation through the inclusion of complementary retailers, outparcel development and alternative uses within our large asset footprint, Riefs said. At the Sears store at Westfield Countryside Mall, weve subleased 37,000 square feet of our space on the ground floor to Whole Foods. We will turn the raw space over to Whole Foods in January 2014. Sears has a history of such partnerships, Riefs said, but the two businesses will operate completely separately. Whole Foods will reconfigure the internal space and external appearance for their needs, Riefs said. Theres a separate entrance for Whole Foods customers and no internal connection between the grocery store and Sears store. Weve worked with Whole Foods on additional locations, including Albany, N.Y., and Greensboro, N.C. Its important to note that we are not closing any of these Sears stores. The two entrances and position of where Whole Foods will be located is convenient because it will not interfere with current parking issues, Clark said. The good thing is that it shouldnt affect the restaurant row parking because it will be more towards the entrance of where U.S. Highway 19 is, so it shouldnt really affect the area of parking that is normally more congested, Clark said. So it will actually be using parking that isnt used as often, so that will be a good thing. Whole Foods officials have not revealed a specific opening date, but Clark guesses it will likely be spring of 2014, though there is a lot of construction to do. She said the mall is excited about the addition of Whole Foods to their location. Its great because this location will be the first Whole Foods in Pinellas County, and people wont have to travel to Tampa anymore to get organic Whole Foods produce, so that is great, Clark said. But not only that, Whole Foods really brings a whole different product offering than some of the other organic food stores and farmers markets might offer. Whole Foods offers a whole lot more variety, so the opportunity for people to get high quality organic produce just makes sense for them here. And Countryside is such a central location, its easily accessible, we have a lot of built-in parking already, and then coupled with the demographics of the area, its just a perfect place for Whole Foods to be. Whole Foods itself is still mostly tight-lipped on details about construction and the store, though Jeremy Jones, spokesman for the company, said they are excited to come to Clearwater and that they felt the location is a good fit. It also wants to continue its tradition of being good neighbors and supporting the community. The brand itself, we are really big on local products, Jones said. We believe in supporting the products that are produced locally and giving back to the community. Thats something we do in any market when we open a store. Jones said that Whole Foods draws a very diverse group of shoppers. Clark agreed, saying there is a wide price range, so it brings in lots of different people. It really appeals to everyone, especially the healthy eater who is smart and conscious about what theyre putting into their body, Clark said. The addition of Whole Foods is just part of a general positive direction that the mall is heading in, Clark said, especially since its big renovation project a few years ago. Everything with the mall is going great, Clark said. Were very leased-up at this time and sales and traffic continue to be on the upswing, so we continue to be very happy with everything thats happened since the 2009 development and is showing positive results, and we think that was instrumental in getting Whole Foods. Although shoppers still have to wait to enjoy the offerings of Whole Foods, they can have immediate satisfaction with a number of other new stores. Some of them that have recently opened include Pandora Jewelry, which is on the second level by the food court; Crocs shoes, which is on the first level near the ice skating rink; Shalimar Jewelers, which is on the first level near restaurant row; PeachMac the Apple Specialist, which is an authorized specialist of Apple products; and a Taco Bell, which took the last opening in the food court, Clark said. Additionally, Earth Bound Trading will be opening in the fall, which will be a first-to-market store, she said. Clark compares it to an Urban Outfitters or Anthropology it will sell clothing, accessories and jewelry. Also, La Macarone is now under construction, which will be a French pastry shop upstairs across from the movie theater.

Make way for Roger the Red or walk the plank. He is the July Pet of the Month winner. Roger was placed in the drop-off box at Pinellas County Animal Services and in September 2005 chose Annabell Raulerson of Clearwater as his new mom. Raulerson always thought Roger would be a great name for a dog, but she wanted a pirate name. Her brother, James, came by to meet Roger and suggested Roger the Red because of his coloring. The name stuck. Wherever Roger the Red goes, people and dogs remember him, and he has accumulated many friends. He acquired the nickname handsome ever since his first veterinarian said, Well, arent you handsome. Roger has also been a big help watching over his family. He gives comfort, protection, love and humor. He even helped Raulersons mother when she became ill. Roger was able to detect when her sodium level was dropping and would give a special alert bark. It took the family three trips to the ER to figure out that the alert bark meant that they needed to give her mom salt. When she died a year ago, Roger helped the family cope and stuck close to his grandfather during the funeral. He lay down in the aisle at the funeral next to him, protecting him in his difficult time. As our pet winner, Roger the Red wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park.

Thunderstorm anxiety in our petsThunderstorms in Florida are unlike those in any other state in frequency, severity and just plain volume. Many pets get fearful with the incredibly loud noises, sometimes shaking, panting, and unable to leave their owners side. It can be heartbreaking to see your pet in that much distress. While some dogs are purely scared of noise, there is a smaller subcategory of dogs that may not be fearing the noise at all. These pets tend to be weathermen, able to predict a storm long before the rain even begins. They also may go to strange places in the house during bad storms, such as in a bathtub, behind the toilet, or deep in a closet. These dogs may actually not be reacting to the thunder noise, but rather a build up of static electricity on their fur as the weather front approaches. Effectively, they are being shocked repeatedly, and do not understand why. They might climb into bathtubs or near other plumbing because the metal can ground them, and stop the repeated shocks. Dogs with this staticelectricity problem do not respond well to the standard thunderstorm anxiety treatments. As long as they keep getting shocked, they will be scared. The ThunderCape (available at www.stormdefender.com) helps to discharge static electricity, and is a huge help to these poor suffering creatures. The results can be nearly instantaneous. There are many options for pet owners with standard noise-based thunderstorm anxiety. Emergency medications, either tranquilizers or anti-anxiety medicines, can be used during severe storms. Some pets develop such a problem that they require daily medication, even when the weather is nice. If you think of thunder anxiety like a phobia in a person, daily medicine would be used to prevent panic attacks, and an emergency medicine used if there is a panic breakthrough. Herbal remedies have been tried as well, with variable success. Many herbal antianxiety drugs have recently been shown to be only effective as placebos, while others have proven effects. Talk to your own veterinarian about what they would recommend as an herbal anti-anxiety drug. There are non-pill remedies as well. The ThunderShirt was originally designed to feel like a hug and may help some pets. It does not help with the static electricity, so it is only of use for those noise-phobic pets. Some people have also had success with desensitization, which involves playing noises of thunder while you give your pet rewards and attention, so that we teach them that thunder is a good thing. Severe thunderstorms can be scary for everyone. I think jumping when the window-rattling booms hit is unavoidable. When your pets reaction drifts from surprise to panic, further action should be taken. Panic attacks are terrible for pets and their owners.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Chess tip: Avoid waterboardingThe queen must die. I have her surrounded. One more move and I will knock her off the computer chessboard. Then came a voice: Mr. Germond, your car is ready. You can sign for it at the desk behind the glass window. Oh Ill be there soon, I replied. So close to victory. Cant leave the auto service center at the dealership until I have crushed my annoying electronic opponent. Ten minutes later, the fortunes of war have changed, and I fall prey to checkmate again. Took all my willpower to avoid doing a Serena Williams on my computer right then and there. Its just a game, I told myself at least four times, reminding myself there are probably laws against committing domestic violence on a laptop, even though it harbors an electronic game that is condescending, cruel, weaselly and insensitive. Its almost human. Chess has been around for centuries, and so have I, thinking how long Ive had a love and hate affair with it. My father or my brother taught me how to play the game when I was 6 or 7 years old, back during a time when children actually played games against each other such as Risk, checkers and Parcheesi. But for me, chess has always been the ultimate war game. No dice, cards, uneven terrain, drones or sharp instruments. White has the first move, its only game-given advantage. In the summer of 1972, when I graduated from high school, I played fervently in Lakeland, winning some, losing some. Studied books on chess and replayed historic games of the grandmasters, such as the late Bobby Fischer, an eccentric prodigy and a reputed sore loser. Try telling Bobby it was only a game. Back then I was young and impatient. Waiting what seemed like hours for my elderly opponent to move a piece seemed like an interminable sentence on a hot summer night inside the walls of a community center devoid of air conditioning. Other than the sounds of a few grunts and chess pieces, all you could hear was a refrigerator rattling. It all wore thin, and I gave it up. Chess is like an old friend. You always came back to it, a former co-worker once told me. I played at clubs off and on throughout the years, hoping that continuous dabbling at the game would pay off mentally in some way, such as at least helping to remember what else I did for fun in 1972 besides play chess. These days, I actually have a live opponent, Paul, who I spar with on some Thursday nights. Both of us, in his words, suffer occasionally from chess blandness, which occurs when you lose a piece by not concentrating. Other than the sounds of frogs barking near a retention pond or one of us crunching potato chips, its pretty peaceful. Oh, I see how you are, I said the other night. Take the pawn with your queen and run like hell. Mild profanity is allowed. Against the computer, the gloves are off. Im determined to keep playing against it no holds barred. Just when I think Im getting better, my unnamed opponent swoops a bishop across the board and sends my bishop into oblivion. You #x%! I resisted the temptation to waterboard my computer to death. A few years ago I inadvertently discovered that laptops are highly allergic to any liquids. A neighbor also plays computer chess. Surprised you dont hear me cursing late at night, he said. Nope. Only because I was cursing louder at my machine, I replied. We should form a support group. Despite my frustration, Ill continue to spar with my computer. As I get older, Ill need to have hobbies such as chess to keep my mind sharp. Chess is like an old friend; you always come back to it. Right, But if I keep coming back to it, somebodys going to put me in the nut house. Just hope they let me bring my laptop.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Whats not so amusing is the appearance of Big Brother snooping into our private lives by both the IRS and the National Security Agency. One wonders, though, how is it that the Obama Administration, which is seemingly obsessed with intelligence gathering, is cryptic about what happened when four dedicated Americans died in Benghazi? Also one wonders how the leader, Edward Snowden, slipped through the cracks. Can we say, the most transparent administration ever with straight faces? Laurence Veras ClearwaterWar of religionEditor: The Obama administration has declared war on religion by policies on abortion, gay issues, contraceptives, Obamacare, threats against religious liberty in the U.S. military, just to name a few. Unfortunately, most of our pastors and religious leaders are doing little to counter these attacks on our religious beliefs and conservative values, possibly because of fear of the disgraced IRS or because they fear that it is not politically correct. In either case, they are wrong. I urge everyone, and especially our Pastors and religious leaders, to go to your computer and type Political and Legislative Guidelines for Pastors and Churches, make copies for yourself and to post in your church. Following are just four of the guidelines that both church and pastor may authorize: Introduction of political candidates at church, voter registration programs and campaigns, educate members of the public about viewpoints of candidates and use of church facilities by lobbying groups to discuss social issues. If your church and pastor is not actively fighting the war on religion, then you need to advise your pastor of his rights under the abovementioned guidelines. Chuck Graham Pinellas Park The harpooning of Paula DeenBy the time this column appears the uproar surrounding celebrity chef Paula Deen may have virtually disappeared. The public often tires quickly of one controversy and then demands another. But on the offhand chance that all possible angles to the Paula Deen story have not been touched on, Id like to stick my oar in by blurting out a few thoughts that came to my mind as I read about the controversy. Ms. Deen provided a first-class target for her critics. Under oath in a lawsuit against her, she admitted to having used the N word in the distant past. In todays super-politically-correct culture, thats all that was needed to unleash the fury of millions of Americans who presumably never once in their lives have uttered the N word or any other racist expression. Because Ms. Deen is rich and well known, she was more subject to attack than if she was a nobody, obscure and poor. Her enemies could therefore assure themselves that even if Ms. Deens sponsors and employers throw her under the bus, she will still survive. That must have been a comforting thought for her foes as they hurled their harpoons. Ms. Deens southern accent also encouraged the critics to jump on her. She was born in Albany, Ga., and sounded like it. If she had grown up in Boston or Brooklyn and spoke with the distinctive accents that those cities tend to impose on their natives, Ms. Deen would not have faced nearly as much heat. But once the right-and-proper-thinking citizens heard Ms. Deens corn-pone-and-collards accent issuing from a woman who then admitted a long-ago use of a racial slur, one thought formed in the minds of many of the righteous: That redneck hussy needs to be taught a lesson. If shes from the South, shes automatically a racist. So lets nail her butt to the wall. Question: If Paula Deen can be crucified for something she said years ago, when does the statute of limitations set in for something any of us may have uttered in the schoolyard, boot camp, or on that night in New Orleans when we took drunk and maligned that saxophone player who smiled at our girl friend? Question: If use of the N word is forbidden to Paula Deen and (I assume) the rest of us, when does the prohibition take effect for the dozens of black comedians who routinely apply the term nr to anyone (black or white) they feel like? And if a black person refers to whites as honkies, shouldnt he be jumped on with at least as much ferocity as has been shown to Paula Deen? Question: If Ms. Deen had admitted calling someone a no-good mother-f-r at some point in the past, would she have caught as much flak as shes now receiving? I doubt it. Today it seems as if most of the obscene, disgusting expressions we can think of are acceptable for use any time and anywhere, while a few words have been declared so offensive they are simply not fit to be spoken. This, in a nation where freedom of speech is supposedly the law of the land. Now that public opinion has banished Paula Deen to the outer rim of polite society, I can only assume the same treatment will be shown for the late novelist Joseph Conrad, who in 1897 wrote The Nigger of the Narcissus. Same thing goes for Mark Twain, in whose writings the N word is profusely scattered. On the road we seem to be traveling, by 2020 or so well be ransacking our public libraries and (in the finest Nazi tradition) burning all books containing the N word or any other expression deemed offensive by the literary lynch mobs. Christ told his followers, Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. Id like to know how many of Paula Deens inquisitors imposed that standard on themselves before lofting their sanctimonious yelps. Let me be clear: I regard the N word and all other forms of racial, ethnic, religious and sexual slurs as abominations. Id be delighted if they all disappeared overnight from our language and our speech. But I also hate the thought of a person being crucified for telling the truth, under oath, about thoughtless comments she made many years ago. If nothing else, the Paula Deen incident has taught us this: throughout our land, on the Left as well as on the Right, the spirit of McCarthyism and the Salem witch hunts is alive and well. Its just waiting for suitable victims. In Ms. Deen, it seems to have found one.Bob Driver is a former columnist and editorial page editor for the Clearwater Sun.

Id like to know how many of Paula Deens inquisitors imposed that standard on themselves before lofting their sanctimonious yelps.Immigration reform can be simplerThe Senate is so out of touch that some leaders think the way to pass a path-to-citizenship bill for immigrants in the country illegally is to budget $40 billion for extra immigration enforcement over the next 10 years. This is the type of cynical ploy that makes everyone hate Washington. The Senate wants to reward people who have broken immigration law and then tell voters its OK because it wants to spend billions more to enforce the laws it will have overridden. The Heritage Foundation panned the Gang of Eights measure with amendments, it runs more than 1,100 pages as a massive, sweeping, complicated bill that works at cross-purposes to its stated goals. Supporters say the bipartisan Senate bill would make immigrants in the country illegally stand in the back of the line, pass a background check and pay fines and back taxes to qualify for citizenship. The process would take 13 years. Senate Democrats might say they are willing to live with a 13-year waiting period before applicants can register to vote, but you just know that theyll try to find ways to change the law or allow authorities to ignore it. Its not fair to the 4.4 million people waiting to immigrate legally, argued Heritages Jessica Zuckerman. GOP Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee and John Hoeven of North Dakota sponsored a border surge amendment, which, sorry, only reminds voters how feckless immigration enforcement is already, when there is no path to citizenship for immigration scofflaws.Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is desperate to pass the bill because, he warns, if Congress does not pass a big immigration bill, the Republican Party will alienate Latino voters further. I agree that the GOP has to find ways to reach out to Latino voters. This bill could not do it, however, especially because Republicans have announced that theyll vote for the measure only if Washington spends billions to secure the border. Those who see illegal immigration as a function of a porous border ignore the fact that an estimated 40 percent of those in America illegally entered legally and then overstayed their visas. During the 2012 election, President Barack Obama deftly played the immigration card. He signed an order for a temporary Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allowed some young adults in the country illegally to apply for work permits and avoid deportation. That action was in concert with the presidents support of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, legislation that would provide citizenship to young people whom, as children and through no fault of their own, entered America illegally with their parents. These kids never set out to break immigration law; the government should not punish them for their parents decisions. These kids want to live the American dream, just as they want to honor their parents sacrifices. House Republicans should feel free to ignore whatever mega-bill the Senate approves. Instead of a Senate-lite bill that would legislate in opposing directions, the House should focus on measures that would address distinct problems. Let members start by passing a DREAM Act to legalize adults who didnt break the law because they were too young to consent.Email Debra J.

Medicaid Certied.CNAs, HHAs, RNs, LPNs and HomemakersAccepting All Long Term Care Insurance 011013 Bluffs woman received transplant thanks to neighbors By BRIAN GOFFBELLAIR Four years ago Myra Bowen of Belleair Bluffs learned she needed a kidney transplant. Now she has one, but only after a long and difficult road. Hers is a story of compassion and community and shes anxious to share it. It began in January 2009, when Bowen, 51 at the time, had an abscessed tooth. It turned out to be much more serious. She suffered kidney failure and had to go on dialysis three times a week. She hoped to be able to get a transplant only to discover that because she was on Medicare she didnt have the 20 percent needed to pay for it. That is when the community stepped in. People from Belleair and Belleair Bluffs got together and staged fundraisers, so Bowen could get her transplant. Then the wait began. In May 2013 the wait ended, or so she thought. I was four and a half years on dialysis and when I got the phone call I was excited, said Bowen. They called me on a Thursday and said they had a match. But it was not to be. When Bowen got over to Tampa General Hospital where the transplant would be done they discovered it wasnt a match after all. I was very down, she said. But she wouldnt be down for long. She got another phone call just two days later. On Saturday I got another call. They said dont rush we have two good kidneys, she said. They belonged to a man in his forties who is on life support. When Bowen got to the hospital and registered she got talking to the man in the line with her. It turns out he needed a kidney, too, and, as it happened, they will be forever linked. Later when I met the man again we compared notes and discovered that I had gotten the left kidney and he had gotten the right one from that same man, she said. It has been three months since the transplant and Bowen says she is recovering nicely, but it hasnt been without its complications. Photo by BRIAN GOFFMyra Bowen sits with her pet Maltese, Angel, just two months after receiving a kidney transplant.that we did to help her out and get some funds. She was pretty excited back then when she got on the list and she recently came into the store to let us know that she got the kidney. It was awesome news because it doesnt always happen. It is spectacular. Franzese said he got involved because one of his employees used to work with her. Jay Hall knew her well and he got us to jump on board; he was actually the one who led us. It is always about people helping people, amen, he said. Another fund-raiser back then was Karla Rettstatt, then a Belleair commissioner. I feel overjoyed, overjoyed, she said. It is wonderful to see how a community can come together and help another person. We are so blessed. I was just one person of many people. It really is what life is all about; it is all good. Bowen, now 55, is divorced and lives in Belleair Bluffs with her pet Maltese, Angel. She is quick to remember those who helped her get the money for the transplant. I got $7,000 from people I didnt even know, she said. Then when I needed money for my medication and insurance my cousin, Allen Goodkind, who lived in Pittsburgh, helped me every month. He passed away last year but I will never forget him or his kindness. Bowen, who was born in Chicago, moved to Florida 19 years ago. Until just before her surgery she worked at a convenience store. She had been there for 15 years until new owners let her go because she was too ill to carry out her duties. Now she said shed like to get back to work somewhere. Right now I cant work, I have good days and bad days, but Im going stir crazy, she said. I need a job; I have too much time on my hands. I love to cook so Ill look for something along that line I think. For now however Bowen said she is just happy to be alive without having to go through dialysis. I feel like I got a new life, I really do. I wouldnt turn the clock back at all on the decision to have the transplant. I feel like I have a second chance at life. Shortly after the surgery I got infected so I ended up spending six hours in Morton Plant Hospital. They got it cleared up with antibiotics and pain pills, she said. Now I take 30 pills a day and Ill be on antirejection medicine for the rest of my life but my kidney is working great. I couldnt stand dialysis, three hours a day three times a week. Some of the people who helped raise money for Bowen over four years ago are pleased with the news of her transplant and happy to have been part of it. It is awesome news, it was a long time coming, said Brian Franzese of Bella Vino Wine and Cheese Market. It was something Health brieyAmputees Together plans meetingST.

They are usually the result of cumulative sun exposure from the suns emission of ultraviolet rays, UVA and UVB, that penetrate the ozone layer and lead to damage of the skin at the cellular level. Over time, the built in repair mechanisms malfunction, resulting in damage which appear as crusty, red spots called actinic keratoses. Actinic keratoses are most often pink or red crusty patches found on sun-exposed areas commonly in fair skinned individuals. Some AKs may have a darker pigment. These are called pigmented actinic keratoses. Men tend to get actinic keratoses on the scalp, especially if hair is thinning. We often see these lesions on the hands, faces, chest, and legs of women in the areas of sun exposure from the years before they were 30 years old. If left untreated, actinic keratoses can grow into squamous cell carcinoma, appearing pink or red, volcano-like growths, sometimes growing quickly. Many times patients come in to our office thinking a spider had bitten them, but they were not! A great analogy for actinic keratoses is to think they are weeds in your lawn, where the lawn is your skin. We have many methods to treat actinic keratoses, but just like weeds, no matter which method we choose, new ones often arise. The goal of treating the AK is to treat them early and hopefully prevent or delay their progression into skin cancers. There are several methods to treat actinic keratoses depending on the number of lesions, their location(s), insurance restrictions, patient expectations, and patients tolerance of potential irritating treatments. Common treatments include: cryosurgery, photodynamic therapy and topical chemotherapy agents. Cryosurgery is a procedure done in the office using a canister of liquid nitrogen to spray each individual lesion to be treated. The spray itself is extremely cold, can be painful, and often creates a blister on the treatment site within 24 hours and usually heals within two weeks. The advantages of this method are convenience, insurance coverage, and efficacy. Photodynamic therapy or the blue light as it is often called, is another office procedure for treatment of actinic keratoses. The patient can expect to be at our office for approximately two hours and must avoid sun exposure for at least 48 hours afterwards. The procedure itself includes preparing the face with acetone to remove any oils, and then we apply an acid called Levulan Kerastick to the skin and let it incubate for an hour prior to placing the patient under the blue light for 16 minutes 40 seconds. We often will place an electric blanket on the patient to heat up their body as recent studies suggest a better response when the skin is warmed. Some patients report feeling a stinging sensation during the procedure and sometimes will have irritation on the treatment site for a week following the procedure. There are now many topical therapies to treat actinic keratoses. The medication 5fluorouracil (brand names: Carac, Fluoroplex, Efudex, generics) has been around for decades. They are chemotherapy creams and are quite effective, especially at treating larger areas. They can be quite irritating and take weeks of application at home by the patient to do their job. If you have pets, be very careful with them licking this cream, as it can be very dangerous to animals. Imiquimod (brand names: Zyclara, Aldara, generics) is a very interesting cream that was originally marketed to treat genital warts. It still works for genital warts, but it is also very effective at treating AK and superficial skin cancers such as Basal Cell Carcinoma. It is thought that this medication works by stimulating the immune system to fight the precancers/cancers and warts. The branded variety, Zyclara, now comes in a convenient pump dispenser, making application quite easy. Some patients report an intense reaction and few patients may experience flu-like symptoms. The application protocol is two weeks on, two weeks off, then two weeks on. The advantages to this treatment are its effectiveness, ability to treat a moderate sized area at once, and its cosmetic results are usually quite good. Diclofenac gel (brand name Solaraze) is a topical anti-inflammatory medication that works by blocking the inflammatory cascade of prostaglandins. This comes in a generous sized tube and it is an easily spreadable gel. The treatment protocol is to apply the gel twice daily for approximately three months. The advantages include minimal irritation or redness, ability to treat large areas at once, and studies show benefits when used on the lips for sun damage called actinic chelitis. Ingenol Mebutate (brand name is Picato) is the newest treatment option we have. It is a gel derived from a bush in the Australian Outback. It was released in the United States a little over a year ago. There are two strengths, one for the face and scalp and one for the body. The application for the face and scalp is once daily for three days and the stronger formulation for the body applied once daily for two days. The disadvantages are insurance coverage, amount of packaged medication, and potential irritation to treatment site. The biggest advantage to this medication is its extremely short treatment time of two or three days as opposed to weeks or months like the before mentioned options. The above treatments are an overview of the more common treatments used today to treat actinic keratoses. This does not substitute for you being evaluated by your dermatology provider and discussing all the options.Whitnie Saron, ARNP is a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner and Tampa Bay native.

Each year, the Healthcare Advertising Awards are presented by the nations leading healthcare marketing publication, Healthcare Marketing Report. Competing against more than 4,000 entries from across the United States, the hospital was awarded for its I Choose television campaign, produced with one of Tampa Bays largest advertising agencies, ChappellRoberts. As we evolved from Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital to Florida Hospital North Pinellas, we realized there was an opportunity to raise awareness and explain the value of Florida Hospital to patients in Pinellas and Pasco county communities, said Bruce Bergherm in a press release. Bergherm is president and CEO of Florida Hospital North Pinellas. After investing heavily into capital improvements and topnotch medical expertise, Florida Hospital wanted members of the community to see evidence of why we should be their hospital of choice. The I Choose campaign began in late 2012 and features testimonials that showcase patient experiences and the life-saving care people can expect from the hospital. The patient stories highlight how residents are already seeing the difference in Florida Hospital North Pinellas. These videos were distributed through an integrated media buy and a microsite that houses these stories and additional hospital information. Since the I Choose campaign launch, the hospital has seen an increase in top-of-mind consumer awareness, demonstrating the power and effectiveness of narrative marketing. When optimized, narrative marketing campaigns are extremely powerful because they emotionally connect with audiences they become authentic brand storytelling, said Colleen Chappell, president and CEO of ChappellRoberts. Any sustainable healthcare brand must create a personal connection with consumers in order to thrive, and we were proud that the I Choose campaign delivered that powerful connection.Sleep apnea support group meets monthlyST. PETERSBURG A.W.A.K.E., a sleep apnea support group, meets fourth Tuesdays, 6 to 7 p.m., at St. Petersburg General Hospital, 6500 38th Ave. N., St. Petersburg.

The center is using a treadmill called the AlterG for several types of treatment. Imagine not being able to comfortably walk for any reason, said Michelle Newton in a press release. Newton is director of rehabilitation at the center. It could be a stroke or balance issue, obesity, pain in the ankle, knee, and hip or back these are the problems that were trying to solve for our patients and we see the real world use and outcomes with the AlterG. The AlterG operates with differential air pressure. Its patented gravity know-how thats rooted in science. Robert Whalen, a NASA researcher, is founder of the concept using advanced DAP machinery for weight support and the biomechanics of astronaut exercise in space. For patients, it means they can start post-surgical lower extremity therapy earlier than expected because of the ability to offset weight. Belleair Health Care Center offers comprehensive outpatient and inpatient therapy services for short or long term care. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

At sea, it turns out that some things are just not for sale. Field reporter Debbie Arfman called in the nicest news of the day: Ann, I am watching a baby dolphin being born! She watched the entire event from an overhead vantage point that did not disturb the dolphins. Not only was she able to report the date of the birth. She was also able to pinpoint the precise time of the birth. That is a tremendous feat. Few people have observed an actual dolphin birth at sea. In fact, many dolphin field researchers are limited to giving a general estimate the most likely season spring, summer, fall, or winter in which a new dolphin was born. In our research, we feel fortunate to be able to pinpoint birth dates to within a few days. Thanks to Debbies good dolphin karma and careful observation, we now have this valuable new information along with other vital revelations about the process. At 3:45 p.m., four adults and two teens began splashing around the surface in an unusual way. It was difficult to say if they were playing, fighting, or what. Three of the adults surfaced very close together. One of them rolled, exposing its great white belly to the sky. The white belly gleamed with a momentary tinge of crimson. That tinge marked the moment of birth. The first two critical responses to being born are breathing and making sure that wonderful dolphin tail (tailstock or peduncle) works. The trio continued to swim close together. They rolled and splashed with their tailstocks as they went. A tiny tail appeared among them and slapped the water surface. One or another of the adults supported the newborn at the surface by rising gently under it, helping the newborn lean its face on the adults back as they went. Throughout the folk and professional literatures, there are tales of auntie dolphins that help by pushing the newborn to the sea surface and life-giving air. Debbies report confirms these. I think that this is the same lifesaving response that is triggered in dolphins that see people who are struggling to swim and are inspired to lend a hand. By 3:47 p.m., the dolphins were very excited. As they clustered around the new mom and babe, they slapped and slugged the water with their tails. There were several leaps into the air. The leaping may have been done by the two teens responding to a strange new experience. The little one surfaced in the ensuing tumult: tiny new dorsal fin, tiny new tail. As if with immediacy, the new nursery group left the scene of the birth and was soon out of Debbies sight. The dorsal fin patterns we use to identify individual dolphins are not commonly known. The identity of the new mother is still a mystery. But let us speculate. What are the chances that mom is one of our local ladies rather than a dolphin tourist? That is, is the new mom more likely to be a resident or nonresident female? Neither. There is a 50-50 chance. Fifty-two percent of the 91 newborns we have seen were born to residents. Forty-eight percent were born to nonresidents. This statistic is the main reason to believe that Johns Pass is a vital nursery area for mother bottlenose dolphins. Current aquatic conditions must be maintained or improved so that the dolphins continue to live and flourish here. Last week, Dolphin Watch reported how local lady DD1 came over and slowly rolled at the boat, frankly displaying her bulgintg white belly. Why she did it is unknown. The reason lies somewhere between coincidence and showing us her belly on purpose. Consequently, it is of great interest to me to see if she has a baby. Debbie said there was a splitfinned dolphin in the group. DD1 has a split fin. But so does a bull we call DD2. The plot thickens. What are the chances of being born in July? Without a dolphin horoscope, we will use the database. The chances of being born in July are one in five (19 percent). This is a tad higher than the chances of being a May baby (16 percent). This is half as likely as being a June baby (37 percent) but twice as likely as an August birth (10 percent). It is four times more likely than an April birth (4 percent) and 19 times more likely than a February or September birth (both 1 percent). Oddly, we have never noted a March newborn. What are the chances it will survive? The chances are very good. July is the best month to be born when it comes to surviving. A higher percentage of July babies survive than those born in any other month. The survival rate of July dolphin babies is 71 percent compared to 65 percent for June births. That is not much of a difference. But if you are that baby dolphin, it definitely matters! The babys chances of surviving if it was born in August are about half (56 percent). Chances are less than half for May babies (40 percent). Debbie might be the only person who has witnessed a bottlenose birth at sea twice. What wonderful dolphin karma she has! It is priceless, and not for sale. I dont care what those online bidding sites say.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and AtmosphericAdministration.

Teams competed in the National Tennis Ratings Program divisions of 3.5, meaning each doubles team consisted of players rated 3.5 or below, and 4.5. While South Florida teams are historically dominant in USTA League play, Pinellas was the only county to put two teams in finals. In the mens 3.5 title, the team from the Shipwatch Tennis Club from Largo proved victorious over Kendalltown Tennis Club in Miami winning their final matches 2-1. The Pinellas duo Franek Gajdeczka and team captain Stephen Mullis won their matches with the scores of 7-6 and 6-3 while their teammates Neil Corella and Joseph Finn beat the second Miami double team with scores of 3-6, 7-6 and 1-0. The third doubles team to play in the final matches consisted of Phil Horton and Robert Compton. Others on the roster were John Finlayson, John Main, Henry Van Drunen, Garry Cook, Norbert Beck, Edward Busch and James Fitzgerald. In the womens 4.5 division, the team from St. Petersburg Tennis Center tied with the winning team from Jonesville Tennis Center in Gainesville in round robin play.

For more USTA Florida Leagues information visit, www.florida.usta.com/usta_adult _senior_leagues/home.Find cooler water for better fishingHot air temperatures for a couple of weeks now have warmed our inshore waters to a balmy 85 degrees, and midday temperatures on the shallow flats can be close to 90 degrees. These warm temperatures can make for some pretty tough fishing. Targeting deep-water flats and structure in and around the passes will definitely put you in position to catch more fish. Trout and mackerel can be found just inside the passes hanging on grass edges that have good concentrations of bait. Productive areas can often be located by the presence of diving pelicans and dipping terns. Newly hatched sardine and threadfin fry is the cause for all the commotion. Most of this bait is too small to be cast-netted and used for bait. Your better option would be the use of small artificial lures, soft plastic or buck tail jigs in white or silver should do the trick. The many spoil islands that dot the Intracoastal Waterway are excellent places to find redfish and trout year-round but are especially good when the water gets as warm as it is. Their close proximity to deep water provides good current flow with water that might be a degree or two cooler. Deep bridges with good current are good places to find snook, gag grouper, black drum and flounder. Targeting the first couple of hours of the tide change with a variety of baits can be very productive. The snook and grouper love big pinfish and grunts. Be sure to drop them down on some heavy tackle at least 50 pound test with an even heavier leader. For the flounder try fishing a small grunt or live shrimp on a jig head. Offshore gag grouper fishing remains good despite the warm water temperatures. Depths of 30 to 60 feet are loaded with gags. Natural limestone ledges and artificial reefs are both holding plenty of fish, the grouper have been responding quite well to big frisky pinfish.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Lenny (Adam Sandler) has relocated his family back to the small town where he and his friends grew up. This time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day notoriously full of surprises: the last day of school.Pacific RimGenre: Action and science fiction Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff Director: Guillermo del Toro Rated: PG-13 When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanitys resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankinds last hope against the mounting apocalypse. The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Crystal FairyGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Michael Cera, Gaby Hoffmann, Juan Andrs Silva, Jos Miguel Silva and Agustn Silva Director: Sebastin Silva Not rated In this freewheeling comedy from the director of The Maid, Michael Cera stars as Jamie, a shaggy, boorish young American traveling through Chile.

With more than 120 million albums sold worldwide and numerous awards, including a staggering 20 Grammy Awards, Springsteens music defines a generation. In celebration of 40 years of iconic music, Springsteen and I will take audiences on an emotional journey through the personal insights and reflections of their fellow Springsteen fans according to NCM Fathom Events. Directed by Baillie Walsh and produced by Ridley Scott Associates and Mr. Wolf, Springsteen and I incorporates the efforts of more than 2,000 fans around the world who submitted personal video clips to make the ultimate collective filmmaking experience about how Springsteen and his music became the soundtrack to so many lives. Including Springsteen performing some of his greatest hits and exclusive never-before-seen archival concert footage, the cinema event features unreleased big-screen performance highlights from the London Hard Rock Calling Wrecking Ball tour and a behind-the-scenes fan meet-and-greet with their hero. This beautifully crafted film provides a unique insight into the powerful bond between a recording artist and those who connect so profoundly with his music, said Ridley Scott in a press release promoting the film. Springsteen and I is totally unique audiences have never seen Bruce and his influence presented like this before, said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of business development for Fathom Events.

Sunshine DaydreamThis summer, fans across the United States will get to see a highly sought-after 1972 Grateful Dead show captured on film when NCM Fathom Events presents the previously unreleased concert Sunshine Daydream as part of Grateful Dead Meet Up at the Movies 2013.

According to NCM Fathom Events, Sunshine Daydream spotlights the bands epic performance against a pastoral background in the Oregon countryside. Shot originally on 16mm film and painstakingly restored to HD resolution, this special event encapsulates the quintessential Dead Head experience and documents the bands performance at the Oregon Country Fair in the summer of 1972. Special features include never-before-seen footage of the concert day as well as recently recorded interviews with key participants such as Ken Babbs, Sam Cutler, Wavy Gravy and Carolyn Mountain Girl Garcia. The host of adventuresome characters provides insight on the sense of community that made possible a special day when the culture came together to help raise money to keep the local towns Springfield Creamery afloat. With appearances by key members of the Grateful Dead community, including masters of ceremony Ken Kesey and Babbs, and a cavalcade of cohorts and Merry Pranksters, Sunshine Daydream stands as the definitive document of the phenomena that changed the lives of millions forever, and proved to the world that theres truly nothing like a Grateful Dead concert.

Jordan), a 22-year-old San Francisco Bay area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Octavia Spencer), whose birthday falls on New Years Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz), who he hasnt been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to Tatiana (Ariana Neal), their beautiful 4-year-old daughter. Crossing paths with friends, family, and strangers, Oscar starts out well, but as the day goes on, he realizes that change is not going to come easily. His resolve takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Years Day. Oscars life and tragic death would shake the city and the entire nation to its very core.The HuntGenre: Drama Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Annika Wedderkopp and Lasse Fogelstrm Director: Thomas Vinterberg Rated: R Directed and co-written by Thomas Vinterberg, The Hunt is a disturbing depiction of how a lie becomes the truth when gossip, doubt and malice are allowed to flourish and ignite a witch-hunt that soon threatens to destroy an innocent mans life. Mads Mikkelsen won the Best Actor Award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for his penetrating portrayal of Lucas, a former schoolteacher who has been forced to start over having overcome a tough divorce and the loss of his job. Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered when an untruthful remark throws his small community into a collective state of hysteria. As the lie spreads, Lucas is forced to fight a lonely fight for his life and dignity.V/H/S/2Genre: Horror and thriller Directors: Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Edardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Timo Tjahjanto, Gareth Evans and Jason Eisener Not rated Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static-white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil. From the demented minds that brought you last years V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes a second generation with no loss of quality.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.
