Investigative operations focus on Pinellas crimeThis is part four of a five part series on operations at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri explained the work of the investigative operations during a June 5 work session. Detectives assigned to PCSO investigative operations are divided into specialized units. One sergeant, one corporal and nine deputies staff the homicide/robbery unit. The unit is responsible for homicides, suicides, missing persons, shootings, physical abuse of the elderly, kidnappings, bank/commercial robberies, individual robberies, suspicious/unusual deaths, sexual batteries, attempted murders, stalking, aggravated assaults/Largo cross country alumni honor legendary coach By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Largo High School cross country alumni from classes as far back as 1968 gathered July 27 to honor a coach who meant much more to them than the sum of his accomplishments. And Brent Haleys accomplishments are considerable. In his 40 years of coaching, the Largo High School team won 10 state championships a feat that has never been matched by any other Florida school. During that time, two of the teams were ranked No. 1 in the nation. In 1976, Haley was named the National Cross Country Coach of the Year. The alumni from his program, connected through the Largo Packers cross country alumni Facebook page, met for a 2-mile alumni race in Taylor Park the morning of July 27. It was the first time cross-country alumni have attempted to reconnect on such a large scale. Chris Palmer, one of the organizers, wrote on the group Facebook page that after months of anticipation, the event came and went in what seemed like an instant. It was filled with beautiful, funny, compelling and poignant moments, with memories simultaneously recalled and newly Photos by JIM LAYFIELDLargo High School cross-country and track coach Brent Haley, right, talks with Keith Johnstone, class of 1989 and current resident of Plantation, at the Largo Cross Country Alumni Reunion held in Taylor Park July 27. made, leaving all of us immersed in both the past and present, paying homage to a program, coach and friends that are so special to us that we were willing to come from thousands of miles away to be part of it, he wrote to the group. Before the race, Haley greeted the dozens of former student runners and their family members who attended the reunion. He then recognized each team from 1968 to 1992, listing their respective accomplishments without notes.SPOT tracks more than 1,700 sexual predators, offenders and career offenders each month. See SHERIFF, page 4A See COACH, page 10A By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO For most of the skateboarders trying out Bayhead Action Park for the first time July 25, the rounded slopes of the dry swimming pool designed to look just like a real one were too steep. But J.T. Griffiths, 15, dropped the 7 feet into the empty bowl effortlessly, the wheels of his skateboard grinding against the concrete as momentum carried him along the edge of the other side, his body going parallel with the level ground above him. I cant do like he does, commented Nick Cushing, 14, of Largo, who was testing out the rest of the park with his scooter. I cant get out of them. Griffiths said he saw the park as he drove past it on Seminole Boulevard. His father, Jason Kylis of Largo, was surprised that a skate park was so close by. The Largo High School graduate said he was more into football when he was young. But Kylis younger son, Jake, takes after his brother and brought his own small skateboard and helmet to the park. Jake is just like him when he was 6, Kylis said. They like it. Now theres (a skate park) right down the street. The city of Largo opened Bayhead Action, at 375 Seminole Blvd., on July 24. Many neighborhood residents had been anxiously watching the construction of the lighted, 7,000square-foot park complete with a concrete mini ramp, empty pool, half pipe and a street section with rails, steps and a grind box. One skateboarder admitted that he had been cited for trespassing, caught more than once trying out the skate slopes before the park was completely finished. The attendance was crazy even on the first night the park was open, Kylis said.

4A County Leader, August 1, 2013 batteries, deaths, home invasion robberies and carjackings. Crimes against children unit are led by a sergeant and have one corporal and eight deputies. The unit investigates crime and other incidents involving juveniles, including homicides, suspicious/unusual deaths, suicide, sexual offenses, attempted murders, kidnappings/abductions, stalking, aggravated/battery, parental abductions and child abuse with great bodily harm. Victim advocates help crime victims throughout the process, including navigating the justice system. PCSO only has two advocates on the job now, as opposed to either in previous years. Despite cuts in the labor force, Gualtieri said advocates still provide decent service. Advocates provide crisis intervention, assistance with filing crimes compensation, criminal justice information and social service referrals. Theyre on call 24/7. In 2012, the two advocates handled 624 cases. One sergeant, one corporal and three deputies make up the arson/auto theft unit. They investigate motor vehicle, and trailer and vessel theft, as well as grand theft involving other types of vehicles. The job includes chop shops, fraudulent title applications, vehicle identification number offenses, suspicious or intentionally set fires and accidental fires with serious injury. The burglary/pawn unit deals with property crime, Gualtieri said. Its one of the biggest areas, he said. The unit includes two sergeants, two corporals and 17 deputies. They investigate cases of burglary, grand theft, dealing in stolen property, Harassing phone calls, felony criminal mischief, felony animal cruelty, pawn violations and jail escapes and erroneous releases. One sergeant and 10 deputies staff the economics crime unit. The unit investigates cases involving forgery, grand theft, organized fraud, credit card fraud, real estate/mortgage fraud, exploitation of the elderly, political investigations, counterfeit checks, Internet crime, extortion/bribery, corruption, money laundering and counterfeit currency. Economic crime is becoming more of a problem, from electronic gadgets to tax fraud, Gualtieri said. They stay very busy. PCSO created a sexual predator and offender-tracking unit in 2000 due to the growing number of sexual predators and sexual offenders within unincorporated Pinellas, according to Gualtieris presentation materials. He said the sheriffs office took countywide responsibility of the program, called SPOT to improve management practices and to reduce duplication of efforts by law enforcement agencies. He said most return to the county where they lived where they have family or friends when they are released from prison. Laws limit where sexual predators and offenders can live to keep them away from schools and other places where children are common. He said they often find housing in the most economically depressed areas. Many live in the Palace Mobile Home Park in St. Petersburg. Some are supervised and some are not. The SPOT unit also keeps an eye on career offenders. Gualtieri said there are about 170 career offenders living in Pinellas. Eight deputies and one sergeant staff the unit, which is responsible for the initial registration of the people they track, as well as the bi-annual re-registration and maintenance of registration paperwork. Predators and offenders are required to register with SPOT when they move to the county and plan to stay for five days or more even if the person plans to be on vacation in the county for six days. If they come to Pinellas after they are released from prison/jail, they must register within 48 hours. Predators and offenders who move to Pinellas from another county also must register within 48 hours. Predators also are required to re-register on a quarterly basis their birthday and every three months thereafter. Offenders must re-register on a bi-annual basis their birthday and every six months after: however, some offenders are required to re-register every quarter, as determined by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. SPOT also does neighborhood notifications, addresses verifications, conducts surveillance operations, gathers and analyzes intelligence and provides community awareness. They also initiate criminal cases of suspected registration violations. From 2009 to 2012, there has been a 55 percent increase, 88 to 136, in the number of sexual predators being tracked monthly by SPOT. However, the number decreased from 225 in 2011 to 136 in 2012. In 2012, SPOT tracked 1,411 sexual offenders a month an 11 percent increase over the year 2009. The unit tracked 169 career offenders a month in 2012, a 61 percent increase since 2009. The narcotics unit is another with a big job, Gualtieri said. People who sell drugs know no boundaries. Its countywide, he said. Prescription drugs are still the No. 1 problem, he said, followed by synthetics. The newest trend is molly, he said, which is a synthetic form of MDMA (ecstasy). It sells for $900 or more on the streets. Gualtieri compared narcotics enforcement to squeezing the balloon. He talked about the vicious cycle of addiction and the need for more prevention, education and treatment. We deal with it as we can, he said. But we cant stop it. One captain, two lieutenants, five sergeants, four corporals and 33 deputies staff the narcotics unit. The intelligence unit has one sergeant, one corporal and five deputies.Special programs and investigatorsIn 2009, PCSO began offering courses in Spanish as a way to reach out to the growing Hispanic population. The agency collaborated with pTec, Pinellas Technical Education Center, to develop a two-year program. Gualtieri said it had proven to be a good investment. Its paid for itself in improving communication with an ever growing segment of our population, he said. Pinellas County has the only in-house customized Spanish course of its kind, which teaches basic Spanish through instruction and scenarios with an emphasis on law enforcement vocabulary. Child protection investigators are funded 100 percent by the state with no cost to the county. He described their job as very significant, as they are responsible for cases of abuse, abandonment and neglect. State law requires that reports of abuse or neglect that come in through the abuse hotline be investigated. PCSO is one of six in the state that provide the child protection investigations. Staff totals 140 people, including 80 investigators. Its a real challenge, Gualtieri said. Funding is totally inadequate. In 2012, 11,244 calls were made to the abuse hotline. There were 817 cases, involving 1,340 children, and 835 were removed from their parents custody an average of 2.3 a day. Of the children removed from their parents, 280 were placed in foster care and 555 went to live with a relative or non-relative, such as a family friend. The other 505 children received court-ordered services in their home. Gualtieri said the state wanted the sheriffs office to continue providing child investigation services. But, theres not enough funding, he said. We may have to give it back, if we cant do it in the right way. He said investigators work an average of 15 cases. The recommended number is 12. The No. 1 stressor is the case load, he said. Most would forego a wage increase for a decrease in workload. But we cant get new investigators because we cant pay enough. Commissioners agreed to add funding for child investigations to its list for the Legislative Delegation. SHERIFF, from page 1ASt. Petersburg wins contract for Highpoint fire services By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Despite objections from the city of Pinellas Park, Pinellas County Commissioners awarded a contract to the city of St. Petersburg July 23 for fire and emergency medical services for the east Highpoint Fire District. Pinellas Park has provided those services since the 1980s with the city of Largo servicing west Highpoint. A contract for west Highpoint is still pending as county staff continues to negotiate for the lowest price. The commission also approved on July 23 a waiver of purchasing requirements for those negotiations. The cost of the fixed-cost five-year contract with St. Petersburg is $1.48 million. Of that amount, $296,652 is the cost to the fire district a net annual savings of more than $1 million However, the savings is at a cost to the city of Pinellas Park. The city will lose $537,000, as Pinellas County will no longer fund a rescue unit at Station 37. Pinellas Park did not bid on the Highpoint contract and instead proposed two alternatives for providing services by changing equipment and staffing at Station 37. Largo only submitted a bid for service to west Highpoint, which was not accepted. Staff plans to continue talks with Largo and solicit Clearwater and others to find the most cost-effective service provider. With the acceptance of the bid from St. Petersburg, staff estimates that the millage rate for the east Highpoint fire district will go from 4.1 mills to 2.6 mills. An owner of a home with an assessed value of $200,000 will save about $300 a year in taxes. Commissioners also approved a resolution making the east Highpoint Fire District part of St. Petersburgs service area. While no one is disputing the savings from the five-year contract with St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park is questioning how EMS services became bundled with a bid request for fire service. Bruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, said Station 37 does not run enough EMS calls to meet minimum requirements of 11 calls a day. He said the station only runs about six calls a day. St. Petersburg can provide necessary services using stations 13, 35 and 36, Moeller said. This will save money and improve service, he said. It makes no sense to expend that extra money. Pinellas County awarded the contract for fire service to South Pasadena in 2012 for substantial savings to that citys residents. Bidding out service in Highpoint was an attempt to duplicate that cost-effective move in more areas of unincorporated Pinellas. County leaders are counting on the competitive bidding process to reap additional savings in the future. Doug Lewis, Pinellas Park fire chief and assistant city manager, said while the city understood the countys need to reduce costs, the bid process for Highpoint had not included EMS. Pinellas Park had not expected to lose the money it receives to provide first responder service to Highpoint. Lewis is upset that county staff did not communicate the effect on EMS funding. Lewis also questioned how service levels could be improved in the area with the loss of Station 37. County officials explained that they had followed the rules associated with the competitive bidding process, which prohibits any discussion about the bids. Lewis said there was not enough communication, especially among local governments accustomed to working together. Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch asked if the change in EMS funding could happen over time to go along with ideas from a consultant to contain rising costs. Moeller said a delay would cost an additional $600,000 in the coming year for EMS. Highpoint residents would still save on fire service. The contract with St. Petersburg for east Highpoint is effective Oct. 1 the beginning of the fiscal year. Welch pointed out that the EMS consultant (Fitch and Associates) had included Station 37 in its plans. He also expressed concern about a potential loss of cooperation if the county took EMS funding from Pinellas Park in fiscal year 2014. Commissioner Norm Roche said he would vote no to award the contract. However, he was absent during when the vote was taken, having left the room to take a conference call on another matter. Roche said he preferred to wait until after decisions on potential changes to the EMS system are made, which could affect all local fire service providers. He said awarding the bid could create more disparity in a system we need to pull together. The decision is premature, he said. Commissioner Karen Seel pointed out that historically Pinellas Park and Largo have helped pay the cost of fire protection in Highpoint when St. Petersburg did not. Commissioner Susan Latvala reminded fellow commissioners the reasoning behind bidding out fire service. Why we put this out to bid was not Fitch (consultant), not the future of EMS. It was about the cost to the citizens in Highpoint, she said. This issue is one of the most complicated of what we do here, Welch said. Seel asked staff to look for ways to be more collaborative in the future. Im disappointed in that regard, she said. I support this, but I also support working with Pinellas Park. Commissioner John Morroni supported Seels request and added that communication was really important. We should ask one more time to be sure all the questions have been answered, he said. I dont want to be in this position again. This is a tough one, Welch added. Pinellas Park is one of our best partners but I have to vote for this (the contract), its the right thing to do. Photo courtesy of PCCTV SCREEN CAPTUREDirector of Public Safety Services Bruce Moeller (not shown) points out the close proximity of stations 37 and 36 on a map of the Highpoint area. Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESthe city hadnt advertised the parks opening, but was pleasantly surprised that it was loaded with kids already. Im happy with it, he said. Brown said he moved up the parks grand opening ceremony to before school starts. Members of the community are invited to the ribbon cutting Saturday, Aug. 17, 11 a.m. The event will feature skate and bike demonstrations, DJ music and giveaways sponsored by 688 Skateshop FLA, Dukka Skateshop, Westside Skateshop and Misiano Skatepark Construction. The skate park was originally moved to Bayhead in the wake of renovations at the Highland Recreation Center. The mostly flat skate park at Highland featured modular steel structures that required more maintenance than the 100 percent concrete ramps at Bayhead, Brown said. I still have all that old equipment. Were thinking about putting it in somewhere else in future years, but with staff reduction this stands up to the test of time a whole lot better than what we had, he said. The budget for the Bayhead skate park started at around $150,000, but the city spent about $11,000 more on the project, Brown said. Added to the park was a wall and railing along the top of the pool, giving some division between the skaters and the walking path below it at a cost of about $4,500. A quarter pipe also was added to finish off the other side. Aside from the skate park, Bayhead Action Park, open daily from dawn to dusk, features two lakes, four lighted sand volleyball courts, two lighted basketball courts, a lighted multipurpose field and a 1/3-mile asphalt loopwalking trail. Amenities include a variety of park benches, picnic tables and trash and recycling bins. The Bayhead skate park, open daily, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., welcomes skateboarders, bikers and scooters.

He then showed the victim a handgun and a police badge, stating the victim was under arrest. The suspect continued driving to a house in Dunedin where he then sexually battered the victim. The victim was held in the house for several hours until the suspect fell asleep and she escaped. Upon her leaving the house, the victim was able to get the vehicles tag number, which she gave to detectives. Kobielnik denied the allegations when detectives interviewed him. Kobielnik is reportedly a former employee of the Tarpon Springs Police Department and the federal Transportation Security Administration.Arrest made in animal cruelty caseST. PETERSBURG A complaint made to Pinellas County Animal Services, resulted in the St. Petersburg Police Department arresting Anthony Duane Stanislas, 21, of St. Petersburg on one charge of felony animal cruelty and eight counts of misdemeanor animal neglect. St. Petersburg police and staff from Pinellas County Animal Services responded to Stanislas St. Petersburg home in June in reference to an animal cruelty complaint phoned in by a neighbor. They found an adult female pit bull, six puppies and a young Rottweiler/pit bull mix in abusive conditions in a makeshift dog run in the rear of the suspects house. The animals were emaciated and suffered from internal parasites. The animals were confiscated and brought to Animal Services. One puppy died on the way. The young Rottweiler mix was healthy enough to be adopted, but the other puppies and the mother dog had to be euthanized because of poor health brought on by neglect. Subsequent to a warrant issued by the Pinellas/Pasco State Attorneys Office, Stanislas was arrested and booked into the Pinellas County Jail July 26. Bond was set at $18,000. The felony animal cruelty charge carries with it a penalty of five years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine. Each misdemeanor charge of animal neglect carries with it a penalty of one year in prison and/or a $1,000 fine. Pinellas County Animal Services responds to more than 3,000 reports of animal cruelty and animal neglect each year. To report a case of animal abuse or neglect, call Pinellas County Animal Services at 582-2600 or their local law enforcement agency. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/animalservices.

Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies, assigned to the major accident investigation team, are investigating the pedestrian fatality. According to deputies, L.C. Dudley of Seminole was driving a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis southbound on 113th Street North at 74th Avenue, as James Morris Wheeler was crossing east on 113th in the crosswalk. Wheeler had already crossed over the first two southbound lanes before being struck by the Grand Marquis. Deputies said Dudley was unable to avoid the collision. Wheeler was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and his 11year-old passenger were not injured. Deputies said neither alcohol nor speed appear to be a factor in this case. The southbound lanes of 113th Street North were closed for about four hours during the investigation and have since reopened. Wheeler is the second pedestrian killed by a vehicle this weekend. Another pedestrian was reportedly struck by a SUV in Largo Friday night and later died at a local trauma center.

(Present this Article). Meet your neighbors this National Night OutI was talking with a friend the other day about knowing the people in your neighborhood. My friend is a Realtor and said she went around her neighborhood on New Years Day, greeting her neighbors and giving them coffee mugs filled with cookies. She thought it was a good way to meet them and to let them know she was a Realtor in case they ever needed one. She said most of the people she met were very friendly, though some were a little apprehensive. I thought about what she said and realized how important it is for us to know our neighbors. I probably have a unique situation because the house I live in is the house I grew up in as a little girl. Some of the neighbors I have known for more than 35 years. Some have moved way and some have passed away. But when I see my two girls with their friends on the street, like I was with my friends, I feel so blessed to be in the house I grew up in. As I asked myself the question, How well do I know my neighbors? I realized I know most of my neighbors I would say about 75 percent but not all of them. I then remembered one big day a year where people get out and meet their neighbors called National Night Out. It is coming up on Tuesday, Aug. 6. I thought that might be a good night to meet the rest of the neighbors. Years ago, we had a lady in our neighborhood who went around as part of the Neighborhood Watch group, compiling a list of everyones name on the block and their phone numbers. This was actually something I thought was a good idea. If we ever had an emergency on the block or we thought something was suspicious, we could give the neighbor a call and let them know. We did have some older neighbors on the block who had emergency situations. The ambulance came and took them to the hospital, and a few times Ive had to call their emergency contacts. Their family members were so appreciative. I really think as parents we need to know who is in our neighborhood.

If I see kids playing on the block and someone gets hurt, I know the parents and can contact them right away. When you know your neighbors, you can help them and they can help you. For instance, I remember when I had surgery a few years ago, some of the neighbors brought my family a meal. It was so nice. I too have brought meals to neighbors who have been sick or recovering from surgery. We also have fantastic neighbors who have helped take care of our animals when we are on vacation. As we approach National Night Out, take the opportunity to meet a few neighbors. Turn on your porch lights, go outside and socialize. Maybe take charge and get a neighborhood watch group together in your community. I know some of my neighbors have become lifetime friends.

Inside cabins starting at $1,696 ppd Dolphin Tale sequel comingWinter will share the spotlight with another rescued dolphin, Hope By LESTER R. DAILEYCLEARWATER The press release that the Clearwater Marine Aquarium sent out on the morning of July 26 was short, cryptic and unexpected. Florida Gov. Rick Scott would be at the aquarium at 3:30 that afternoon to assist its executives and staffers in making a major announcement regarding the facility. This is a big day, not just for CMA but also for our city, county and state, David Yates, the aquariums CEO, told the hastily assembled crowd of reporters and dignitaries. He then introduced Scott, who explained the importance of CMA and its movie star dolphin, Winter, to Clearwater, Pinellas County and the state of Florida. To marine biologists, Winter is an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. But to CMA officials, she is a cash cow. Scott said that 750,000 people, including 400,000 from out of state, visited CMA last year. They were part of the 93 million visitors to our state last year. And he said that Winter was one of the states major tourist attractions. Scott then gave Yates an award for directly or indirectly bringing 3,000 jobs to Florida. Scott said that, on a previous visit to CMA, he got into the frame of a photo of Winter that his wife was preparing to take. She told him to get out of the photo, thereby proving that Winter was a bigger celebrity than the governor of Florida. Scott then said that at the urging of two lawmakers from Pinellas County, State Sen. Jack Latvala and State Rep. Ed Hooper, the state Legislature has agreed to subsidize a Dolphin Tale sequel to the tune of $5 million. The odds are that well get a great return on our investment, Scott said. Im thrilled that Dolphin Tale II is going to be filmed right here in Florida. Photo courtesy of CMAHope, seen in the foreground, is Winters co-star in a sequel to a Dolphins Tale, scheduled for release in September 2014. This photo was taken in January not long after the two bottlenose dolphins began sharing the same tank at Clearwater Marine Aquarium.abled veterans. Its hot in Clearwater, Cretekos added. But weve got Winter 365 days a year. Films can work; we just need to get a great return. How cool is that? Yates asked the crowd. We have a sequel, guys. Like the original Dolphin Tale, the sequel will star Winter, who was rescued from a crab trap line near Cape Canaveral when she was 3 months old. She subsequently lost her necrotic tail but learned to swim using a prosthetic tail and became the star of the CMA show. It will co-star Winters friend, Hope, whose story is similar to Winters except that she didnt lose her tail. The $5 million will be given to CMA with the stipulation that it only be used for the production of a Dolphin Tale sequel. Warner Brothers affiliate Alcon Entertainment, which produced the original movie, will also produce the sequel. The good news is that all the (original) actors are back, Yates said. They include Morgan Freeman, Kris Kristofferson, Harry Connick Jr., and Ashley Judd. Dolphin Tale was a great success, becoming a top hit, Yates said. The story will basically pick up Winters life story and introduce Hope. Production is expected to start in September of this year and end next January. The movie is scheduled to be released on Sept. 19, 2014. It is exciting, Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos said of the sequel. Winters is a story that inspires people such as handicapped children and disBriefsAcceletry offers online tutoringAcceletry, a local student tutoring service since 2002, is now offering an online version of the proven ACES tutoring model.

8A Viewpoints Leader, August 1, 2013It just so happens that when President Barack Obama gave his moving speech on racial disparities and the death of Trayvon Martin on Friday, it was a year almost to the day since the White House said it wanted to review the commutation petition of a black man sentenced to life without parole in 1993 for a first-time nonviolent drug conviction. As the president spoke on the AfricanAmerican communitys acute awareness of racial disparities in everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws, he ignored his own failure to redress a racial inequity by freeing Clarence Aaron. You might say that under different circumstances, Barack Obama could have been Clarence Aaron. As a 23-year-old college student with money problems, Aaron set up two large cocaine deals between a pair of career drug dealers. Aaron broke the law, so he earned time in prison. But how did he get a life sentence when the two kingpins were sentenced to shorter time? One was released in 2000; the other kingpin, who threatened to skin an accomplices sister, is serving 24 years. Federal laws designed to put away kingpins are being used instead to over-incarcerate small fish. Unlike the drug bosses, Aaron didnt win a reduction in sentence for testifying against co-conspirators; he lied on the stand, which increased his sentence. So he gets life while the dons get out. During his remarks Friday, Obama criticized state and local stand your ground laws, over which he has no authority. But he wont clean up his own turf. The Constitution grants the president the unfettered power to commute federal sentences. To date, Obama has commuted only one sentence. Pardon Power blogger P.S. Ruckman placed Obama among the most merciless presidents in the history of the United States. Obama did sign the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, which reduced the disparity between cocaine and crack sentences, which used to disproportionately subject African-Americans to draconian sentences even more. To correct the disparity for those convicted before the new law, however, the president could use the pardon power to apply the law retroactively or to reduce the sentences of nonviolent offenders serving life without parole, but he hasnt. Its not life without parole really, said Families Against Mandatory Minimums President Julie Stewart. Theyre serving death in prison. Knee-jerk apologists have lectured me that if Obama commuted more sentences, conservatives would criticize him. Ha. Was there a controversy after Obama commuted the 22year sentence of crack offender Eugenia Jennings in 2011? A growing number of conservatives ranging from Jeb Bush to Ed Meese have signed the Right On Crime statement of principles, which challenges Washingtons reliance on prisons and policies that harden low-risk offenders who could be rehabilitated. With this movement, Obama could use the pardon power in a cause that brings left and right together. Alas, it appears the president seems interested in racial disparity only when he can use it as a crowbar to pry the country further apart. When he has the authority and ability to correct federal racial inequities, he is missing in action.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. To find out more about Debra J. Saunders and read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate Web page at www.creators.com. They took my friend Harry Hownds away last week. Hell be gone for at least two months at a Georgia mental institution, to be treated for a breakdown caused by Harrys desire to live longer and healthier. Harry is on the far side of 75. But he was enjoying life. He had a few beers each day, chased an occasional widow, and ate any food he wanted. But as time passed he got somewhat porky and low in energy. This worried Harry and his friends. One day he fell in love with a sleek matron named Arianna. She in turn cared for Harry, to the point that she issued an ultimatum to him: Harry, get in better shape or its over with us. I cant stand to watch you die. Harry at once launched a campaign to learn all about nutrition, diet, exercise and helpful drugs. And thats when his mental breakdown began. He ran head first into what is one of our cultures dirtiest non-secrets: our health experts cant agree on what we should do to stay fit and healthy. One institute says its okay to have an occasional steak. But then I get a report that lists six reasons not to eat red meat, because it might give me heart disease, cancer or diabetes, Harry wailed to me. One expert advises me to take an aspirin each day, but next day I encounter a TV guru who says no, be careful, aspirin can make me bleed to death internally. So what should I do? A week later Harry discovered the warnings about gluten. He told me, Did you know that we are surrounded by gluten, that gluten is in almost all our food, and that it can frazzle your enzymes? Then there were the water-intake contradictions. Harry showed me two separate nutrition magazines. One said we should drink at least 32 ounces of water each day; the other one said, Thats silly. Ten ounces is plenty. Harrys voice trembled as he asked me, Why cant the medical geniuses agree on these things? While learning more about nutrition, Harry ran into a number of unpleasant surprises dealing with prescription drugs. For years Harry had read that Lipitor was one of the better anti-cholesterol medicines. But a few months ago, Harry learned that Lipitor may have some serious side effects, one of which involves the likelihood of diabetes. As his investigations continued, Harry was shocked by the two-faced arrogance of the pharmaceutical industry. For every benefit cited in the average drug advertisement, disturbing possible side effects were also listed. How can any intelligent consumer take the risk of using such drugs? Harry never resolved that question, and it certainly contributed to the scrambling of his brain. He found blatant lies or contradictions about food supplements. Garlic, for instance. Everyone knows that garlic keeps vampires away, right? Tie a few garlic cloves around your neck and those two-fanged nippers will never come near you. And for years weve been told that garlic also lowers your cholesterol level. So Harry began popping garlic pills as if they were candy. One day he ran into a Stanford University study that proved garlic makes absolutely no difference in the levels of either bad or good cholesterol. When Harry told me about the deflated garlic myth, he was near tears. What can I believe in? he asked. What finally drove Harry over the edge was this: He discovered that even when the nutrition people agree on something, Americas food industry conspires to drive us all into an early grave. Example: sugar and salt. The health publications blare this message: Avoid excess sugar! Cut back on salt! Are they kidding us? Harry said to me. You go into a supermarket and all you see are products loaded with sugar even the fresh fruits, vegetables and bread contain sugar. The doctors warn us that extra salt in our food kills tens of thousands of us each year because of strokes and heart attacks. They say that 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day should be the maximum for young, healthy persons, and even less for oldsters, African-Americans and people with high blood pressure. What a joke, Harry continued. A single cup of canned soup will have 400 to 800 mg. of sodium. A plate of lasagna can contain 2,800 mg. or more. The solution to this? Oatmeal and broccoli? I give up. And thats what Harry did. He fell silent one day, and soon his grown children had to take over. Are there many people out there like Harry, who go nuts trying to eat right by following the confusing rulebooks? I dont know. Most of us just keep on eating as much of whatever we feel like. Meanwhile, millions of our fellow humans go hungry. Thats the angle that could drive us all over the edge, if we stopped to think about it.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

I would like to know that no store in any country in any state would be allowed to or secretly sell this poison, and they should be shut down if they do. No fine will stop them from doing things illegally. They just find another way to do it. Shut em down, take away their livelihood, which is money. Boycott all stores that have been caught doing this also. People need to stand up for themselves. Thank you, Clearwater Police Department. L i v i a B a r r e c a ClearwaterEliminate laws deficienciesE d i t o r : On Aug. 23, 2011, the Pinellas County Board of Commissioners passed into law an ordinance regulating recreational open burning (Code section 58-217). During the discussion and commentary of the proposed ordinance prior to the vote, there was unanimous agreement among all present that the proposal had serious deficiencies that allowed for astonishingly easy and legal circumvention of its expressed intent. It was universally agreed that the proposal should be passed as an interim first step toward implementing its full intent, and that solutions for the deficiencies would be forthcoming as amendments. After two years the deficiencies have not been addressed. During those two years and for the foreseeable future, the weak and toothless ordinance allows for unlimited recreational open burning in residential neighborhoods if a few minor prohibitions are obeyed. As a result, there are residents who are deprived of the enjoyment of their domiciles, and in some cases suffer injury to their health, by frequent smoke pollution. Although it seems incredible, there are neighbors in our densely populated communities who engage in recreational open burning on many or even most days, for hours upon hours, especially during the fall, winter, and spring months. The citizens who are adversely affected by inconsiderate frequent open burning need to contact their county commissioners and tell them that action is needed to eliminate the laws deficiencies, as was promised two years ago. R o b e r t K r a u s e LargoWomen seek gold, find nickelE d i t o r : My girlfriend and I are two 60-year-old women who worked to support the family and successfully launch our kids into adulthood. What now? we asked ourselves. Having time and a budget, we decided to create a bucket list. Things we want to accomplish before we kick the bucket. Our first choice required a modest investment. For $45 each we purchased a Fathers Day special at Radio Shack, a metal detector called the Bounty Hunter. Our eyes glistened as we dreamed about the gold we might find. We excitedly donned our floppy hats, sunglasses and sunscreen and looked for a public park on the Gulf side to pillage. We put two hours worth of quarters into the meter and realized how the city fathers made their budget targets. Impatiently reaching the waters edge, my friend started scanning the flotsam thrown up by the recent storm. My job was to dig when the beep sounded. It did. Many times and each time detected iron. We quickly moved on, learning to ignore the iron beeps. After two hours, we were hot, sweaty and empty handed. What was wrong? Was it our technique? As we started back across the wooden bridge, I silently whispered a prayer, Lord, let us find something to encourage us in this new hobby. We stopped in the middle and I thought, try here. Everyone walks on the wooden planks to get to the beach. Maybe someone dropped a coin in their haste. I took the detector and started scanning along the handrail. Beeep! This time it signaled it was a coin. My friend eagerly started sifting with her hand. A dime! Ten cents! Delight and relief showed in our faces. This proved we were doing it correctly and we could see ourselves as treasure hunters! Our next expedition took us to a narrow, hard-packed, pot-holed beach that ran alongside a highway on Tampa Bay. We backed the car into an alcove flanked by mangroves. The rippling tide was only 5 feet from our bumper. After metal detecting for 20 minutes, we looked up to see the tide splashing against the tires. I was shocked the tide moved so fast and again moved the car forward. Twenty minutes later I looked up again, and was stunned as to the tides speed. This happened three times. We learned a lot about how quickly Tampa Bay fills and empties each day. Bottle caps littered the area so when we scanned I ignored all the aluminum beeps. I thought that beer consumption alone would make it a target-rich environment as tipsy beachgoers might drop their change (and hopefully nothing else!). I was right it beeped coin three times and we dug up a quarter, a nickel and a penny. Still hoping to find gold rings, we comforted ourselves as we realized we had netted 41 cents in our two outings. Our hobby will probably take us to some of Pinellas Countys most beautiful beaches and this will be (almost) a reward in itself. Look for us one day we will keep seeking treasures lost on land and sea!

The award recognizes outstanding achievements in housing and community development programs throughout the nation. The award will be presented for the organizations Educational Contractor Workshops and its Peer-to-Peer Training Program. PCHA determined that many contractors view the housing authority bidding procedures overwhelming due to the amount of paperwork and bonding requirements. In an effort to better inform the local contracting community on the various types of solicitations and their differing requirements, PCHA held educational workshops for contractors providing various types of services. Two types of workshops were presented: a general how-to workshop titled How to Do Business with PCHA and a workshop aimed to simplify contractors understanding of the requirements relating to the Davis Bacon Related Act. The Peer-to-Peer Training Program came about in an effort to maintain efficient and effective operations in the Housing Choice Voucher program as HUD regulations change and PCHA policies are revised. Continuous learning opportunities are necessary to reinforce regulatory requirements and agency policies and procedures to maintain high performance. In a climate of significant funding decreases it is more important than ever that innovative, cost-saving techniques are used to maintain a level of staff training to continuously improve and maintain the efficiency and effectiveness of HCV program operations without significantly impacting the budget. The implementation of the Peer-to-Peer Training Program provides the solution. NAHRO members have been leading the way with innovative solutions to address resident services, management and operations, affordable housing preservation and sustainable development and economic revitalization in their communities, said organization President Betsey Martens. They have stepped up, taken advantage of opportunities to find new and creative ways to address local housing needs and we are proud to recognize their achievements. The 2013 NAHRO Awards of Merit recognize outstanding achievement in housing and community development programs in five categories. Pinellas County Housing Authority is the largest housing authority in Pinellas County, currently providing housing and rental assistance to approximately 8,500 individuals through agency-owned affordable housing, public housing, assisted living and the administration of the Housing Choice Voucher program. SPC orthotics program makes waves in the KeysCLEARWATER Perhaps you take swimming in the water for granted. For amputees without legs, however, just getting from a beach chair to the waters edge can be forbidding. When they go to the beach they have to take their leg off and hop to the water, said Michael McCauley, a graduate of St. Petersburg Colleges orthotics and prosthetics bachelors degree program. We want them to be able to swim without a care in the world like the rest of us. Thats my goal. This week, McCauley and O&P program director Arlene Gillis are traveling to the Florida Keys with a group from the Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge to conduct research on prosthetic swim legs. McCauley will observe amputees swimming with and without their prosthetic legs to measure their air intake, heart rate and buoyancy and how long it takes to swim certain distances. The results will help improve prosthetics built for water and thereby the quality of life for amputees who want to pursue active lifestyles. Founded in 2010, the CWCV works to improve the lives of wounded and injured veterans through rehabilitative challenges and to further the science related to their injuries and treatment. Some of their recent trips have taken them to glaciers in Alaska, the depths of the Grand Canyon and the heights of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africas highest peak. St. Pete College O&P students and graduates have joined these trips to conduct research, such as anatomical reactions to changes in environment; the effects of stress, extreme weather and altitude on prosthetics, post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury and the effects of temperature change on overall pain levels, spastic moments in the lower extremity and hand function. McCauleys love of the ocean has prompted him to focus on activities beyond land. Theres very limited research on underwater prosthetics, said McCauley, who graduated from SPC in 2011 and manages an orthotics and prosthetics practice in Nashville. Right now, they make swim legs just so they dont rust. Theres so much more we can do, but we need the research. Technology advancements in just the past decade have helped transform modern prosthetics. Today, amputees can reasonably rely on their new limbs to help them conduct daily activities. Beyond that, however, sports like diving require specialized limbs that can be costly. Buoyancy is a pretty big deal, McCauley said. When we dive, we have to get neutrally buoyant. For amputees, we have to weigh the legs Photo courtesy of SPCChris Corbin and Evan Olson participate in last years Combat Wounded Veterans Challenge trip to the Florida Keys.down so they can stay down. For his part, McCauley will focus partly on able-bodied swimmers to monitor their swimming styles, propulsion of kicks and angles of feet and knees.

Funding will be used to support key program activities within HEPs Family Transition Program, which is designed to assist families in crisis to access and sustain affordable housing and achieve community integration and economic stability. The program is anticipated to serve at least 50 families, many with young children, by the end of 2013. We are incredibly grateful to have been a chosen recipient of the TD Charitable Foundations generous gift, said Zachary White, HEPs director of programs. Recent census data from Pinellas County reveals an increase in the number of homeless children, from 1,944 in 2009 to 2,100 in 2011 a 10 percent jump. The funding provided by TD Charitable Foundation will be used to help families who are struggling within our very own communities. The foundation has donated more than $100,000 to help various HEP programs and supportive services aimed at breaking the cycle of homelessness. The recent grant follows a gift of $5,000 made to HEP in August 2012 to support the same program. In fall of 2011, the foundation awarded HEP $100,000 in support of the capital campaign to raise funds to build HEP West, which consists of a 32-unit apartment complex designed specifically for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and a clubhouse for use by all HEP veterans.

Haleys legacy was not just about achieving cross-country feats but about creating an experience for his team that was fundamentally formative in the shaping of who they were and are. Over a third of a century later, we all see that Largo (Cross Country) and the experiences Coach Haley gave us were really lessons about life, he wrote. Coach Haley received exactly what he selflessly gave: love, admiration, friendship and respect. He does not know any differently. Alumni at various ages and levels of fitness ran a 2-mile race through Taylor Park. Joe Palmer, class of 1991 and current resident of Palm Harbor, came in first with a time of 11:38. The day concluded with a reunion dinner at Largo Cultural Center that evening. It was an amazing day that will provide a lifetime of memories, wrote Scott McCracken, who currently lives in Daytona Beach. Everyone is so honored to be a part of Coach Haleys life and so blessed that he will always be a part of ours. Freedom Spirit of Florida takes silver in National Senior GamesCLEVELAND The Freedom Spirit of Florida, a 70-plus womens softball team that practices in Clearwater, brought home silver from the National Senior Games in Cleveland, Ohio, held July 24-27. The team won the first two games in their tournament with scores of 20-0 and 9-6. Shortstop Ethel Lehmann, 83, of Largo was named one of five Humana Game Changers for the Senior Games. The honor recognizes senior athletes who exemplify lifelong wellbeing through the spirit of determination, personal strength and dedication to their sport. Lehmann was a co-founder for Freedom Spirit of Florida, one of the few senior softball teams in Florida. Leading the lineup, she scored the first run of the second game in the tournament after walking. The team has a long history with the National Senior Games, which are held every two years. Since the 1995 games, they won four golds, four silvers and two bronzes three of those won in back-to-back years between 2001 and 2005. During the season, the team plays on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Clearwater. Many of the grandmothers and great-grandmothers that make up the team are older than 75. In fact, they recently competed in a Softball Players Association tournament in Pensacola as a 75-plus team, playing in the 70-plus division because there werent any other teams to compete against. Freedom Spirit took home the gold. In the first three games of the tournament, they didnt need the five extra runs they were allotted because of the age discrepancy they played. Lehmann and first baseman Ruth Fellman have been playing softball together for more than 60 years.Photos by TED WATHENAbove, softball shortstop Ethel Lehmann, 83, of Largo takes a swing at the National Senior Games on July 24 in Cleveland, Ohio.

PETERSBURG Gazing down the lane, Mini Tvaska could barely make out the pins standing at the other end. Im blind, you know, the 95-year-old bowler said. Then, she quickly corrected herself. Shes not actually blind. But she does have macular degeneration, a chronic eye disease, and her eyesight grows a little worse each day. To her, the pins are nothing more than blurry white spots at the end of the lane. Her teammates have to let her know which pins are still standing after her turn. I cant see any details. Youre standing right in front of me, but I cant even see your face, Tvaska said. Still, this doesnt keep her from her favorite pastime. On Thursdays, Tvaska practices at Sunrise Lanes in St. Petersburg, and on Mondays and Tuesdays, she bowls in leagues at Seminole Lanes. She knows the game so well, she said, that all she has to do is look down at the floor before she bowls. Details arent necessary for her to differentiate the lane from the gutters, and she estimates where and when she should release the ball. Prior to the eighth-frame turn of one of her weekly practice games she bowls two games simultaneously on Thursdays she readies her tiny body and shuffles to the lane before releasing the ball. These days, she bowls with an 8-pounder, though she proudly noted that when she was much younger she was able to lift a 16-pound ball. The result: a strike. I was just lucky, Tvaska said. Ive never been a good bowler. I just love doing it. But her subsequent turns indicated otherwise: a spare, two frames with just one pin standing, another spare, a strike. Tvaska insisted it was just her lucky day. The highest shes ever bowled is 232 and she averaged 160 during her better years; these days her scores hover around 100. Never good enough to be competitive, she said. In May, Tvaska added to her participation record at the annual United States Bowling Congress Womens Championships, this year held in Reno, Nev. As the player with the most consecutive appearances, she hasnt missed a single tournament in 67 years. But shes always bowled for fun, focusing on the social aspect of the sport, not the competition. She never minded that most of her accolades have been due to the number of years shes bowled, rather than her prowess, she said. The most money shes ever won in a tournament was $250 and that was split with her doubles partner, her niece Nancy Nelson. Tvaska grew up outside of Detroit in Dearborn, Mich. She was always athletic, playing softball as a teen, but had never bowled before. When Tvaska was 18, she and a group of friends decided to give bowling a try. By the time she was 22, she was bowling in a league womens only, as there were no mixed leagues then. It was a different era, and bowling alleys were considered seedy joints, where men went to drink and to smoke without their wives and children, a far cry from todays familyfriendly entertainment centers. Her mother-in-law routinely referred to Tvaska and her friends as a bunch of bums whenever they went bowling. Tvaska married her husband, Charles, in 1940. They were married for 58 years, until he died in 1998. He bowled, too, she said, but she was the real bowler between the two. Often, her husband would drive her and her friends to their league games. In many ways, she and her husband embodied Detroit. She worked as a riveter for Ford Motor Company during the Second World War. Later, she became a clerk for a fishing lure company. Her husband was first a car mechanic, and then worked as a lithographer for Ford, helping build various machines for the company. And Tvaska easily took to bowling in the city she calls the bowling capital of the world. Tvaska first bowled in a USBC tournament in 1947, that year conveniently held in Grand Rapids, Mich., an easy trip from Dearborn. From there, she got hooked on attending the annual championships. Without hesitation, she went back the next year. She and her husband made friends throughout the country, and, because they never had children, were able to travel often, to all 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii, she said, because of the tournaments. In 2001, Tvaska moved to Florida. Her mother had lived in St. Petersburg, before dying in 1956, and her uncle and cousin owned the Dew Drop Inn in Tampa. Growing up, Tvaska often visited her family in Tampa Bay. One of the first things she did when she moved to Pinellas County was to find a new bowling home at Sunrise Lanes and later in Seminole. And Tvaska sees no end in sight. I love it, she said. Ill keep bowling until I cant.

The deadline to purchase is Sept. 19 or until supplies run out.Weather favors good grouper actionLight winds for much of this week and through the weekend should give many anglers a chance to head offshore for some gag grouper fishing. Both gag and red grouper can be effectively targeted in 40 to 50 feet of water. Ledges that are holding bait in these depths are likely to have plenty of gags holding on them. Frozen sardines have been producing better numbers of fish than the live baits. However, if youre looking for the larger fish big grass grunts are the ticket. Inshore, redfish remain top targets. Early morning high tides will have the reds pushed up close to shore as they patrol the many oyster bars that dot the Intracoastal Waterway. Live shrimp under a float is a great way to target reds in this situation. Also try a cut pinfish placed on the outer edge of the oyster bar. Outgoing tides have still been productive for snook fishing. Target jetties and pass shoals with free-lined grass grunts on the strong part of the tide. Shark fishing has also been very productive, whether youre targeting small 3 to 5 foot blacktips or bigger bulls. Set up in deeper water adjacent to shallow flats. Areas that are holding schools of fry bait indicated by dipping terns working the surface will be more productive. Typically we use the same size equipment used for redfishing when targeting the smaller blacktips, and tarpon rods work great for putting out bigger baits for the bull sharks. Keep a fresh chum block out and fish with live pinfish under a float or with oily baits on the bottom such as shad, mullet or ladyfish. Typically the bigger the bait, the bigger the shark.

By the time he released his first solo album Friend or Foe in 1982 and became an icon of the MTV generation, he had already spent more than five years fronting Adam and the Ants, a cult band that flourished during the waning years of punk rock and the emergence of New Wave in England. Now, hes back again, with a new album and world tour that brings him to the Tampa Bay area this month. Adam Ant will perform with his band The Good, The Mad & The Lovely Posse on Friday, Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $25. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Fans can expect a massive, full-on musical attack thats bigger and better than ever, Ant said in a press release promoting the tour. It took years to record this very personal and intimate album. And Im excited to share the experience with my friends and fans. The new album, titled Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunners Daughter, was released in January by Ants own label, Blueblack Hussar Records. It is available in a deluxe doublegatefold vinyl edition as well as a CD with a 36-page deluxe booklet.Early careerAdam Ant was playing bass in the band Bazooka Joe in 1975 when he caught the first ever performance of punk rock pioneers The Sex Pistols. The band had a significant impact on Ant, who soon after left Bazooka Joe to work on other projects. In May 1977, his newly formed band, The Ants, played their first concert at the ICA restaurant and theater in London. According to Ants website, the audience was stunned. The website summarizes the next few years as The Ants followed this debut with shows in the basement of the Man in the Moon pub. The band at this time featured Adam on vocals and occasional guitar, Andy Warren on bass, Dave Barbe on drums, Mark Ryan on guitar and Jordan on vocals. Adam and the Ants spent several years playing the club circuit in London, performing at venues such as The Vortex, The Roxy and the Marquee. They also landed dates outside London, playing towns such as Liverpool, Birmingham and Plymouth. In 1979, the band released their debut album Dirk Wears White Sox. The big break came in 1980 when millions of UK viewers saw Adam and the Ants perform Dog Eat Dog on Top of the Pops. Following a personnel shakeup, Adam and the Ants signed a record deal with CBS records which produced 1980s Kings of the Wild Frontier, which included the single Antmusic which peaked at No. 2 on the UK singles chart. Around this time, Ant had perfected his distinctive warrior sound, putting it into practice with a band that included two drummers. The band followed up with the album Prince Charming in 1981. The album included two chart-topping singles: Stand and Deliver and Prince Charming. In March 1982, Ant decided to change gears again. He dissolved the group as he prepared to launch a solo career. That same year, the band earned a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.The 1980sAnts solo career began with the release of the single Goody Two Shoes. Ant retained his songwriting partner Marco Pirroni (a late addition to the Adam and the Ants lineup), a decision that proved rewarding. According to Ants website, the collaboration with Marco would end up as the longest-lasting and most fruitful working relationship that Adam would have. Friend or Foe was Ants first solo album, released in October 1982. It would become Ants most successful solo album and included the hit song Goody Two Shoes, which peaked at No. 1 on the UK charts, and at No. 12 in the United States. The innovative video was in heavy rotation on MTV, helping Ant reach wider audiences in North America. Friend or Foe employed Ants traditional sound as well as an added element of rockabilly. Two other singles from the album also charted: Desperate But Not Serious and the title track Friend or Foe. Ant followed up Friend or Foe with his second album Strip in 1983. Strip did not achieve the same level of chart success as its predecessor. The albums lead single was Puss n Boots, which hit No. 5 on the UK chart. The title track, Strip, was released in 1984 and reached No. 41 on the UK singles chart and No. 42 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. In the mid 1980s, Ant put his music career on hold to focus on acting. During this period, he appeared in several American television programs such as The Equalizer, Amazing Stories, Sledge Hammer!, Tales from the Crypt, Northern Exposure and La Femme Nikita. On stage, he appeared in Joe Ortons Entertaining Mr. Sloane and scored the lead in the Steven Berkoff play Greek. Recent historyIn 1990, Ant recorded and released Manners and Physique that included the hit Room at the Top. A follow-up album, Persuasion, would have been Ants fifth solo studio effort but the album was never released due to conflicts with the record label. In 1995, Ant released Wonderful and supported it with successful tours of the UK and North America. Following the tour for Wonderful, Ant did not perform live again until 2006 when he read extracts from his autobiography Stand & Deliver. The book laid bare Ants childhood and his well-documented struggles with mental illness. In 2008, Adam received the Q Music Icon Award alongside fellow recipients Paul McCartney and Bryan Ferry. According to a press release promoting the current tour, this recognition led directly to a series of performances in 2010 and it inspired Ant to form his new band, Adam Ant & The Good, the Mad & the Lovely Posse. After a string of sold-out shows during 2012 tours, Ant released his new album, Adam Ant is the Blueblack Hussar in Marrying the Gunners Daughter. The album, a musical autobiography with 17 musical stories about Ants life and things that interest him, debuted at No. 8 on The Official Chart in the UK and climbed to No. 3 on the UK Indie Albums Chart. Many people know that Ant lived in Los Angeles for several years while pursuing film roles. But most people never knew that later in life, he quietly bought a house and lived in the small town of Dayton, Tenn. With its swampy, southern flavor, Cool Zombie, the debut single from Ants new album, speaks to this aspect of his life. I lived in Tennessee for a couple of years, Ant recalls. And after a while I started to think about music. I missed it, the creative process and the live side of it. The first part of the albums enigmatic title is a nod to Ants iconic Kings of the Wild Frontier character who wore the trademark white stripe. Ant now refers to the character as The Blueblack Hussar, a fictional reference to a European cavalry hussar officer of the 19th century. The second half of the title, Marrying The Gunners Daughter, is the name given to a form of 18th century naval punishment chosen to reflect some of his experiences in the music business. In concert, fans can expect to hear all of Ants hits including Goody Two Shoes, Stand and Deliver, Prince Charming, Ant Music, Strip and Wonderful as well as deep cuts from his early days and selections from the new album.

The Dukes of Dixieland embody 39 years of tradition, offering jazz as its meant to be: both durable and flexible.

Lang Lang is cultural ambassador for Shenzhen and Shenyang. And if the Chinese passion for piano isnt solely due to him, he has played no small part as a role model a phenomenon coined by The Today Show as the Lang Lang effect.

8B Entertainment Leader, August 1, 2013 080113 Designers, artists fuse fashion, art for Dunedins Wearable ART 9DUNEDIN Wearable ART 9 will once again mix the worlds of fashion and art on Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd. The pre-party will kick off at 7 p.m. The runway show will start at 8:30 p.m. Following the show, there also will be an afterparty event. General admission tickets are $20 with reserved seating priced from $35 to $75. Call 298-3322 or visit www.dfac.org. What exactly is Wearable ART? According to the DFAC, the annual event is part art exhibit and part fashion show. More than that, the gala has become one of the most anticipated artistic events in the community. With a new director at the helm this year, Wearable ART 9 is bound to continue to be the standard against which all other art/fashion shows are measured. The DFAC tapped Dawn Scott to oversee this years event. This is a great rush for me, said Scott in a press release. Scott is the centers new events director. Ive come to the show before, but being on the ground floor of building the show is exciting. There is just such incredible talent working here in the Tampa Bay area. That talent has consistently manifested itself in groundbreaking work exhibited at past Wearable ART shows. Attendees have seen everything from raw meat as body adornment to alarming breasts. We have new designers, and some repeating favorites with new and exciting work, as well as a gallery installation, Scott said. Then of course, theres live music at the after-party. Wearable ART was one of the first shows of its kind in the area nine years ago, showcasing a growing contingent of artists working in fashion-related ways. It continues that tradition in its ninth year featuring a gallery installation by Kate Cummins, an exciting new collaboration with local artistic legend Rocky Bridges and his wife Kathleen Bridges, as well as work by newcomers, Julian Hartzog, Lina Teixeira, Neva The Diva, Melissa Dolce, Eve Kuczynski, with return engagements by performance artist Alice Ferrulo, Johnny Hunt, Mark Byrne, the Garden Fairies, and perennial crowd pleaser Rogerio Martins with new work. Martins, a Brazilian fashion designer and a mixed-media artist, is known for his unique wearable art and fashion creations inspired by the feminine existence, nature and the use of unusual fabrics and materials. He has a bachelor of fine arts from International Academy of Design and Technology. His creations have been exhibited in museums and venues such as DFAC, Tampa Fine Arts Museum, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bay Magazine, WOW World of Wearable Art in New Zealand and on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in France. Martins used raw meat as a body adornment at one of the previous Wearable ART shows. At Wearable ART 8, he presented his Predatory collection, inspired by birds of the Amazon rain forest. Rocky and Kathleen Bridges also are Wearable ART veterans. Rocky is a distinguished mixed media, found-objects artist. The Tarpon Springs native began his artistic career at age 14 when he exhibited work in the student category of the 1978 Palm Harbor Fine Arts and Crafts Festival. Since then, he has gained national acclaim for his work. Rocky is a professor of art at Lakelands Harrison School for the Arts. He formerly served as an adjunct professor of art at St. Petersburg College and the University of South Florida. He has been awarded a number of fellowships and grants for his work. Rockys work has been exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. His entry in Wearable ART will once again be a collaboration with his wife, Kathleen. Tickets are limited and because of the popularity of this event the DFAC expects a good turnout. We expect another sell-out and just an incredible show, said Scott. There seems to be many fashion shows now around town. I guess we have to consider that the greatest compliment, based on what DFAC has built here. Photo courtesy of DFACDunedin Fine Art Centers Wearable ART 9, set for Aug. 17, features fashions such as this by Julian Hartzog.years of tradition, perfection, spectacle and awe-inspiring entertainment. Among Chinas most gifted performers, live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments accompany this troupe. Daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs, trick cycling, powerful precision tumbling and gymnastics, astounding displays of contortion, flexibility and control, incredible balancing feats, and extraordinary displays of agility and grace are combined in this impressive display of ancient artistry.
