But the little girl isnt able to go to school, because touching the table where another child was eating a peanut butter sandwich could kill her in a matter of minutes. Her mother, Allison Feeley, said that Sammy was born with nothing wrong. I remember counting 10 fingers, 10 toes. She was just perfect, she said. As an infant, Sammy would break out after her mother ate dairy or peanuts before nursing her. But it wasnt until Sammy was 6 months old that Allison realized something was severely wrong. She had prepared a bottle of formula for her in an effort to give her some more nutrition. As soon as the bottle touched Sammys mouth, she went into full anaphylactic shock: a full-body, severe allergic reaction. Her eyes were swollen shut; she had mucus everywhere. She was fading into unconsciousness. She had hives, head to toe.

See SERVICE DOG, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners set tentative millage rates for fiscal year 2013-14 during a morning work session July 30.

Unlike many previous meetings on ways to balance the EMS fund, the room wasnt packed with fire chiefs, firefighters and paramedics opposed to a consultants findings and recommendations. The Thursday morning meeting concluded in about an hour. This is a very important day, Commission Chair Ken Welch said at the beginning of the work session. He said the work done by the consultant, Fitch and Associates, was a good process toward a necessary discussion. That doesnt mean well agree on everything in the report, but it does give us enough information to make decisions. He said the consultants conclusion that Pinellas County had the finest EMS system in the United States maybe the world was good news. He also said it was time to move forward to maintain the excellence of the system in an affordable way. Robert Polk with Pinellas Suncoast Fire Rescue and president of the Pinellas County Fire Chiefs Association, outlined the areas in which the association agreed with the Fitch report, which he described as the most comprehensive set of data weve ever had. He complimented Fitch for its interesting use of the data, which consisted of EMS calls from the year 2011, and said the association also agreed with Fitchs conclusion that the countys system was one of the most sophisticated in the United States. The association agrees with Fitch in its opinion that the plan proposed in a 2011 study by consultant See EMS, page 4AGirl Scouts help turn plastic bags into mats for homeless Photos by JULIANA A. TORRES By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Six 11-year-old girls from troop No. 422 earned Girl Scout Bronze Awards by learning how to croquet plastic bags into sleeping mats for the homeless. The award, the highest honor a troop of Girl Scout Juniors can achieve, is given after the girls each complete 20 hours of service. The girls worked with women at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Largo to learn how to cut the grocery bags into rings, tie the pieces into balls of plastic string and then croquet the strands into a soft sleeping mat. All of us made enough so somebody would be able to pick up the bag of the balls of yarn and be able to croquet the mat, explained Girl Scout Samantha West. Samantha said she was able to croquet about a fourth of a mat on her own. Im very slow at it. It took me probably 15 hours to do that, she said. The girls divided the tasks, most taking on the task of cutting and stringing the bags together. The task was tedious, and the plastic often ripped. The girls discovered that Target bags made the strongest links. In the end, the girls made enough balls of plastic yarn to make seven mats. It took us months, fellow Girl Scout Catherine Litchy said. Above, Girl Scouts from Troop No. 422 earned a Bronze Award by working with a ministry at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Largo to croquet plastic bags into sleeping mats for homeless individuals the church serves.

The public hearing was a continuation from July 9 when commissioners delayed action to change the existing classification of Residential Estate and Residential Low Medium with Resort Facilities Overlay. Commissioners wanted to make sure remaining residents of Briarwood Recreational Vehicle Park would have an affordable place to go. They asked the city of Largo to work with the property owner to provide additional assistance. Attorney Ed Armstrong, representative for the property ownerDockside Investorswho plan to build a 260-unit apartment complex at the site, said $30,000 had been deposited in a fund to help pay relocation costs. The property owner also contracted for services from Community Services Foundation. At the July 9 meeting, commissioners were told that about 50 adults were still living in the park, several testified about hardships that prevented them from moving. As of July 24, approximately 30 families were still working on relocation plans, according to Tina Harper, Briarwoods property manager. Harper said four families were relocating Aug. 6 and two others planned to move this week. In addition, she said Community Services Foundation had been meeting with residents about two times a week to assist them. The property owner has agreed to pay $1,375 to those who would turn over the title to their RV to the property owner. Others could receive up to $1,200 to help cover moving expenses. Some cant just drive off, she said. All have different needs. Commissioner Norm Roche talked about making sure four residents, who are registered sex offenders, found a place to move and didnt end up on the streets. Roche was assured that efforts were ongoing to help all the remaining residents. Christine Allamanno, a lawyer with Gulfcoast Legal Services, said $30,000 might not be enough to help all the remaining residents, especially those with special needs. She said best estimates showed moving costs of $1,200 to $2,000. She also talked about a rumor that one park was discriminating against residents who were receiving her legal services. Im still concerned about the lack of affordable units set aside in the new development, she said. The property owners agreement with the city of Largo calls for the units to be rented at market rates. Carol Stricklin, Community Development director of the city of Largo, also talked about the relocation efforts by the property owner and the city. In 30 days, weve accomplished a great deal, she said. Stricklin said Largo had one more public hearing to get through the second reading of an ordinance to amend the future land map. The rest of the approvals would be administrative, she said. She said the city would remain involved in the relocation process and would address outstanding concerns. Commission Chair Ken Welch asked what would happen if the $30,000 was not enough to help everyone. Stricklin said information was available about other relocation resources. She said the city would look at additional resources if necessary. The city of Largo asked for this and it is a significant improvement in their minds to the city, Commissioner Charlie Justice said. Its up to them to make sure their residents are taken care of.

4A County Leader, August 8, 2013Mc Gunderson, one of the principals with Integral Performance Solutions, was in theory achievable, but not implementable. The countys system is not in such disrepair to need such a move, he said. The association agreed with Fitch that using Sunstar instead of fire department first responders for low-level emergency calls would not save money. He also agreed with the findings that a centralized system created efficiencies. However, he said, Surge capacity must be present in the system to ensure response to disasters. He also pointed out that fire departments and districts contribute to the system by providing equipment and personnel that doesnt cost the county a dime. He said for the first time, in 2014, the firefighters contracts for EMS would be less than the contract with Paramedics Plus, a private company that provides ambulance service under the countys Sunstar brand. He cautioned that any changes made to the system would be complex and time consuming. This report provides a positive framework for dialogue and potential savings and long-term savings enhancements, he said. Lt. Scott Sanford with Palm Harbor Fire Rescue said he was glad that Fitch had demonstrated that a plan he co-authored with Capt. Jim Millican with Lealman Fire Rescue would work. The plan advocates ambulance transport by local fire departments instead of private ambulance service. However, he wasnt happy with the revisions made in the plan to address excessive workload, which Fitch said was a problem with the Sanford-Millican plan. Adding in units to balance workload made fire department transport too expensive to implement. Its somewhat of a relief to find closure on this, he said. This is a life and death decision were passing on to you. Lealman Fire and Rescue Chief Rick Graham said the Fitch report showed the countys system was effective and efficient. He objected to the notion that the system had excess capacity as opposed to reserve capacity. Reserve capacity is required, he said. He gave the example of recent thunderstorms as proof of its need. Its the difference between life and death. Its safety, he said. Graham is not sure that the CARES plan recommended by Fitch is something that can be implemented immediately. Its a good platform, he said. The CARES plan calls for a reduction in EMS staff during nighttime hours. John Klinefelter, president of the Clearwater Firefighters Association, talked about problems with the IPS and Fitch study, saying neither had been fully vetted. He objected to the countys move on priority dispatch. He said the CARES plan, cutting 10 hours from midnight to 7 a.m., did not ensure enough firefighters were on duty to respond at all times. Its not just about medical, its also about fire, he said. He said if the county did not fund personnel for those 10 hours, cities and fire districts would have to fund their own units. He said one-third of Clearwaters units were funded by the city now. He said if the county made cuts, they would have to do more with their advance life support engines, which could influence the level of service on Clearwater Beach. Its a huge cost shift to the cities and fire districts, he said. Thus far, municipalities and fire districts have been silent in terms of a formal response to Fitchs report and the CARES plan. Commissioner Chair Ken Welch said the response had been favorable in conversations with some fire chiefs. The commission directed staff to begin conversations with all interested parties as soon as possible to begin work toward implementing any possible cost savings from Fitchs plan. While the consensus was to push ahead sooner rather than later, commissioners realize it could take two to three years. Meanwhile, millage rates may have to be increased to pay for costs. The commission agreed that boundaries of the discussion should center on the CARES plan, reduction of staffing for 10 hours between midnight and 7 a.m., addressing excess capacity, long-term financial sustainability and protecting the level of service. Commissioners also asked for a status report on phase 3 priority dispatch. The commission had voted to implement phase 3 on June 1. Phase 3 calls for Sunstar to respond to low-level emergency calls instead of fire department first responders. The Fitch report recommends the opposite approach response by fire personnel instead of the private ambulance provider. County Administrator Bob LaSala said the decision would be up to the EMS medical director and Medical Control Board, but staff supports Fitchs recommendation. He said that Phase 3 was not in effect at this time. Welch asked if the medical control board was still planning to move ahead with eliminating response to certain calls, such as hiccups. Bruce Moeller, director of Public Safety Services, said that plan was still undecided. Commissioner Susan Latvala commented on the results of the Fitch study. Were now in a better place. Theres more consensus in the community, she said. We need a system that will sustain us in the future while maintaining the most clinically sophisticated system that we have and addressing excess capacity. Commissioner Karen Seel, along with other commissioners, thanked Sanford and Millican for their contribution toward solving the EMS issue. But we still have a long-term sustainability issue. Thats still the elephant in the room, she said. 29 times. Once, the whey protein from a protein shake went airborne, and Sammy had to be rushed to the emergency room. What people dont understand is its not just allergies, Allison said. Its a disease that will kill her an invisible illness, unless she has a reaction. Since Sammys diagnosis, her mother and three younger siblings are limited to where they can go. Theyre often confined to their apartment in Pinellas Park. Theyve learned the hard way that places that were safe once might later cause a reaction in Sammy. If she wants to play with friends, they have to come to her house. Shes never been able to attend daycare or kindergarten. Her mother prepares all her meals. I have to read every single thing that goes into her mouth. I need to know exactly whats on every surface. I need to know exactly whats on every table, chair, door handle, anything. Otherwise it could kill her, Allison said. How do you tell a 6year-old she cant go to the park? The constant vigilance, never knowing what might kill her daughter, is like living a nightmare, she said. But a dog named Angel, currently being trained in Colorado, could help Sammy live a normal life as a kid. Angel Service Dogs is a nonprofit organization that began unintentionally, said its founder, Sherry Mers. She and her husband have a daughter, now 12, who also suffers from severe anaphylactic reactions to peanuts. We suddenly had to look at the world as a place that could kill our kid, she explained. Our circle of friends started getting smaller because we werent going out to meet people; we werent going to amusement parks or the mall.

Her mother, Allison, wants to bring home a service dog that will help Samantha avoid allergens that could kill her so she can lead a normal life. SERVICE DOG, from page 1Amillage changes on the average single-family residence. A home with an assessed value of $99,967 would be taxed an additional $26.49 for general fund millage and 35 cents for the Pinellas Planning Council. Residents living in a single-family home with an assessed value of $191,018 in East Lake will save $47.75 on library taxes. Residents living in a singlefamily home with an assessed value in the Gandy Fire District will pay $1.87 more in taxes. Taxpayers in a home with an assessed value of $104,176 in Highpoint Fire District will save $92.81. Homeowners of a residence with an assessed value of $115,305 in Pinellas Park Fire District will pay $34.98 more, and owners of a single-family home with an assessed value of $131,949 in Safety Harbor Fire District will pay $5.62 in additional taxes for fiscal year 2014. Commissioner Karen Seel pointed out that the figures did not include the 3.4 percent increase in property values countywide. Staff said the numbers were representational of the changes, not exact numbers. Staff offered estimates of tax increases for the countys portion of the tax bill for some municipalities, including: $20.66 for a home with an assessed value of $76,945 in St. Petersburg $27.07 for a home with an assessed value of $100,835 in Clearwater $17.63 for a home with an assessed value of $65,660 in Largo $26.96 for a home with an assessed value of $100,428 in Tarpon Springs $25.31 for a home with an assessed value of $94,256 in Dunedin The assessed values are the average for the municipality. The total includes millage for the general fund, EMS, Health Department and Pinellas Planning Council. County Administrator Bob LaSala pointed out that the figures did not include the school board, municipal millage or any others not levied by Pinellas County. Tentative millage rates will be reflected on the Truth in Millage notices to be sent from the Property Appraisers Office on Aug. 19. The rates can be lowered, but cannot be increased. Commissioners will continue to take public comment on next years budget and millage rates at two hearings in September. The first is on Sept. 5. The budget and millage rates will be approved at the second hearing on Sept. 17. For more information, visit www.pinellas county.org/budget/14budget/budget/fy2014.html.Social action fundingCommissioners also discussed a plan to change the way nonprofit organizations that provide food and shelter to the needy are funded. The consensus was to restore the money for that funding to the budget for the coming year and take the difference from the stabilization fund. Commissioners agreed that it was better to implement changes in fiscal year 2015 to give organizations time to prepare. Gwendolyn Warren, director of health and human services, is working on a plan that would ensure that the countys money is not used to pay administrative costs or duplicative services. This needs time to phase in and not just pull the rug out (from under), said Commissioner John Morroni. We just need to say that this is the last year. Warren agreed that care should be taken. We have a need and its significant, she said. The problem is the way we distribute the funds. Commission Chair Ken Welch agreed that the process should be simplified and transitioned into the future. But Im all for having this in the budget recurring every year, Welch said. Its a community partnership that people understand. MILLAGE RATES, from page 1A EMS, from page 1APinellas returns to twice-a-week watering schedule By SUZETTE PORTERSouthwest Florida Water Management District Governing Board voted July 30 to eliminate all water shortage orders effective Aug. 1. Residents are encouraged to maintain year-round conservation and adhere to local government schedules. This summers above-normal rainfall has brought significant improvement to aquifer and river levels. Major public water suppliers, such as Tampa Bay Water, now have enough water for meeting customers needs. The U.S. Drought Monitor report issued July 23 shows no signs of drought in any part of Florida. The outlook through October continues to show Florida as drought-free. Customers of Pinellas County Utilities can now return to the twicea-week watering, according to a schedule set on street addresses. Customers using potable (drinking), well, lake or pond water can irrigate their lawns twice a week. Addresses ending in an even number, 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, can water on Thursday and Sunday. Addresses ending in odd numbers, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, can water on Wednesday and Saturday. Addresses with mixed or no address can water on Tuesday and Friday. Properties that are two acres or more in size may water half the land on Thursday and Sunday and half on Wednesday and Saturday. No watering is allowed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Restrictions have been lifted on activities such as car washing, hand watering of plants, trees and shrubs, as well as pressure washing and operating fountains. Irrigation of new lawns and landscaping must follow an 60-day establishment period. Reclaimed water customers follow a different schedule with addresses ending in even numbers allowed to irrigate on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Addresses ending in odd numbers can irrigate on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Addresses with mixed or no addresses can water on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Watering with reclaimed water is not recommended between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Residents should be aware that watering restrictions can change with little notice. Watering violations can result in a $193 fine. Utilities customers can receive email notification of schedule changes. Make sure to update email addresses at www.pinellascounty.org/utilities.

Residents who do not receive water from Pinellas County Utilities are encouraged to check with their provider about possible watering restrictions. The resulting mat, made of about 365 plastic bags, is a soft and strong cushion against the hard ground. Catherine said the project was fulfilling, just knowing that it was going to help people. Its something you dont really do every day, Sydney Chiles added. You have fun together and while youre having fun you do a really good thing for the world. Identifying their community was the first step in the project, said troop co-leader Melanie Litchy. Samantha pointed out that their project introduced the troop to new people in the community. Youre giving them something to sleep on at night, and its much better than the ground. And youre also recycling, Samantha said. Maggie Corrigan of St. Paul United Methodist Church worked with the girls, giving them the large croquet hooks needed for the project and showing them how to complete the task. The church members, after learning the skill from another church, began sleeping mat ministry in February. The mats are given out to people that need them through the churchs Open Arms ministry, she said. When she met with the girls July 29, Corrigan brought a completed mat, so the girls could see the end result of their hard work. I thought that it was important for the girls to see the mats, she said. Corrigan and other members of the church worked on the mats on their own time, like the girls did. I would hazard a guess that I probably put 10 hours into a mat, she said. Its kind of hard to tell because you cant stay at it verylong because its hard on the hands. She also brought the giant bag of rolled up plastic yarn the girls donated to the ministry. I just made a dent in that big bag of bags, Litchy said the girls were a bit disappointed that they werent able to complete a mat themselves, though Sydney and Samantha are still working on their partial mats at home. I think each girl truly felt like they made a difference, that what they did was really going to help someone, she said. Thats what its about. The troop had trouble initially picking out a project, They wanted to help so many people and so many different things that narrowing it down was difficult for them, Litchy said. The troop was at first inspired to help animals before Litchy proposed the sleeping mat project. The girls were all excited about the idea and unanimously agreed to pursue it. Even a few months after the project was completed, Litchy said she still hears the girls talk about it, as well as talking about their next service project to earn the more prestigious Girl Scouts Silver Award. Theyre really making the connection in how the project worked, she said. Other members of the troop who helped with the project are Autumn Hodrick, Alexa Berg and AnnaRose Brown.

I thought, If a dog can find a pineapple, why cant a dog find a peanut? Mers said. After much research and working with a dozen trainers, a dog named RockO was able to keep Riley from deadly traces of peanuts. Word of the familys success spread, and suddenly other parents wanted to know how they could train a dog like RockO. Now, more than 60 children have been paired with a dog that is trained to guard them from whatever substances are harmful to them. Some of the children have an additional medical issue or special need that makes the dog necessary. Others are extreme cases like Sammy. For kids that need this, theres really nothing else out there that can help them, Mers said. The dogs cost $32,000 to train. The organization asks the families they partner with to raise $20,000, which also covers the cost of flying them to Colorado Springs to attend a two-week class that will teach them how to work with the dog. The organization receives applications for their specially trained dogs almost daily, but can only train dogs so fast, Mers said. Currently, the organization tries to train 10 dogs for each training class, held about three times a year. The Feeley family has until Sept. 15 to meet their goal in order to be able to attend the class in October. A 2-year-old Australian labradoodle named Angel who has been selected for Sammy almost has the scent of peanuts down and next will train to alert for dairy, Allison said. Im so excited, she said. (Sammy) wants to be able to go to dance class. She wants to be able to go to school. She just cant. Mers has been in communication with the family over the phone almost daily, she said. Angel, who was not intentionally named after the organization, can change Sammys life, allowing her to go to school and be a normal kid. We know that a dog like Angel can totally open that up to her without the fear of touching and eating something thats going to cause her to go into an anaphylactic shock, Mers said. Sammys anaphylaxis not only affects her mobility, but also that of her two younger sisters and baby brother, who also are limited to where they can play and eat. As a single mom, its hard for Allison to stay strong for her daughter. She tries to remain calm when Sammy has a reaction so her daughter doesnt get scared, she said. But it kills me, absolutely kills me, to have to stick her with an EpiPen and hope that the EpiPen works, she said. After a trip to the emergency room, once her daughter is stable and another family member has arrived, Allison said she often goes outside and just breaks down. Youre staring death in the face and thats your child, Allison said. Im thankful every time she wakes up in the morning, because thats another day I can spend with her. Because who knows? Mers said she loves her job because she is able to make the lives of children, like Sammy, better. Plus its a cute little dog thats going to be a good companion for her, she said. She also gets to see the fundraising efforts rally a community. Theres not a lot of things in this world where you get to truly help improve someones life, Mers said. This is a situation where we come together as a society and help these kids live a life that they would never dream to live. The family has already raised about $14,000, most of which was raised in the last week. A benefit, complete with dinner and family-friendly activities, will be held on Sunday, Aug. 11, 5 to 7 p.m., at Christ The King Lutheran Ministries, 11220 Oakhurst Road in Largo.

Police also released further details about the incident that began about 7:30 p.m. as a disturbance between the deceased and a female. According to the police report, after the domestic disturbance, the female left and then returned with three male relatives. The deceased, Paul Adjutor Doyon Jr., 43, of Pinellas Park, reportedly brought a handgun outside to confront the three males. During a physical fight between the four, a shot was fired from the gun, but no one was hit. Doyon then attempted to go back inside the house, but he was locked out by one of the visiting males. Doyon went around to the back of the home and entered through a broken glass window. The male who had locked the front door, exited and Doyon remained inside. Police responded to a call received at 7:15 p.m. Witness reports indicated that Doyon was inside the house with a firearm. The SWAT team was activated at 7:33 p.m. Several calls were made to Doyons home phone with no answer. Police then used a bullhorn, but Doyon didnt answer. A SWAT phone was deployed into the house and activated, but no one answered. Blood was detected on the floor by a surveillance camera, deployed inside the house. When the camera located Doyon, he was not moving. The SWAT team then entered the house. Medics were called in, and Doyon was declared dead at the scene. No one else was inside the house. Doyons body was taken to the medical examiners office. Preliminary cause of death is loss of blood due to lacerations. He did not have a gunshot wound. Police said the case is an active homicide investigation. Everyone involved in the initial disturbance and physical fight has been identified. Police are attempting to sort out the details of what occurred prior to police arrival and if there will be any criminal charges to be filed against any of the participants in the disturbance and fight. Doyon was a self-employed fisherman. CLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported Aug. 1 that three men had been charged after a fishing expedition led to arrests in connection with introducing contraband into a county detention facility. The incident took place at the central division of the Pinellas County Jail, 14400 49th St. N. According to the sheriffs report, at least two inmates and one civilian concocted a scheme where the inmates would lower a nylon rope from the sixth floor recreation yard of the detention facility to a subject waiting outside on the ground. The subject outside would in turn tie contraband to the rope so the inmates could pull it up through a rain drainage hole on the top floor. Members of the detention investigations unit recently received a tip from other inmates this activity may be occurring. After a failed attempt to bring in contraband Monday, July 29, the detention investigations unit discovered a grocery-sized bag hanging from the fourth floor of the facility. Inside the bag was approximately 29 grams of marijuana (valued at about $1,500 in the jail), tobacco products, lighters and other items. Inmate Mark Matthew Red Keating, 44, of St. Petersburg was charged with introducing contraband into the jail. He is being held without bond on a warrant from Palm Beach in connection with two burglary charges. He is also charged with grand theft and armed robbery in Pinellas County. Inmate Phillip William Henderson, 38, of St. Petersburg also had introducing contraband into a detention facility added to his list of charges that include petit theft, grand theft and retail theft. The man on the outside, Eric Scott Snook, 41, of Pinellas Park also was charged with introducing and possession of contraband into a detention facility. Bond was set at $5,000. Measures have been taken to prevent this activity from occurring in the future, according to a media release from the sheriffs office. A 6-foot chain link fence was erected in the courtyard where Snook tied the contraband to the rope. Other measures to deter this activity are being discussed. As the investigation continues, additional charges and arrests are possible.Two injured in two-vehicle crashSEMINOLE Sunstar paramedics delivered two people to area hospitals Aug. 1 after a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Seminole Boulevard and 119th Avenue in Seminole. A crash report from Florida Highway Patrol indicates that the incident occurred just after 9 p.m., when a 2000 Nissan Sentra collided with a 1995 Nissan pickup truck. The Sentra was east in the driveway access of Winn Dixie Supermarket, 11900 Seminole Blvd., attempting to cross Seminole Boulevard onto 119th Avenue North. The Nissan was traveling northbound on Seminole Boulevard in the middle lane approaching 119th Avenue. The Sentra failed to yield the right of way and the front end of the Nissan crashed into the right side of the Sentra. The driver, John Richard Walsh Dietrich, 23, of Seminole was cited for failure to yield at sidewalk from alley, building, private road or drive. According to an eyewitness report, Seminole Fire Rescue was first on scene and extricated one of the injured, who was trapped inside a vehicle. One of two passengers in the Sentra, Ryan Laprova, 23, of Largo was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Nissan, Helen Marie Roop, 30, was transported to Largo Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Largo Fire Rescue and Pinellas County Sheriffs Office also assisted on scene.Bicyclist airlifted to medical centerCLEARWATER A bicyclist was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center with critical injuries after being hit by a car about 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, Gerald Mullen, 48, of Clearwater was riding his bicycle southbound on McMullen Booth Road crossing in the marked crosswalk for Union Street. Brian Wolstein, 50, was driving his 2009 Porsche eastbound in the right turn lane of Union Street west of McMullen Booth Road. Wolstein failed to stop for the red light at the intersection prior to turning right onto McMullen Booth Road. He didnt see Mullen and struck him. Charges are pending.

We are located off the beaten path in a warehouse district and really needed to get the word out so folks could find us. We tried door hangers, direct mail, yard signs to newspapers and the one that consistently works for us is, TampaBayNewspapers, the Beacon-Leader-Bee publications. We've run pre-printed inserts, a special Fix-It section and regular ads in their weekly and monthly editions and have had great results from every paper. People are telling us they found us from our ad in their local community paper. We are very pleased with the response and will continue to advertise as our inventory changes every day.Building Your Business... 080813 Joseph and Louie DiNicolaOwners Home Improvement Warehouse1650 N.

Nearly two years since he got the idea to build a memorial wall to honor members of the U.S. military, a total of 47 memorial bricks have been attached to the wall next to an attractive, colorful mural. His goal is to fill the wall to capacity with about 360 more bricks, which are actually individual tiles. I think its our responsibility to remember those who have decided to unselfishly serve our great country, said Traficante, the division vice commander of Auxiliary Flotilla 11-3. This is an opportunity to honor a family member or anyone who has served in the military. The concept came about after two of Traficantes friends were killed in Afghanistan. Their wives were afraid their children would grow up not knowing who their father was, said Traficante. We have memorials in Washington but really nothing out there nearby. In February 2012, Traficante went to work. He advertised on Craigs List for an artist to paint the mural and found Belinda Davis of St. Petersburg. She began work on the mural about four months later and a year ago it was dedicated at the Auxiliary headquarters, located at 299 Boca Ciega Drive. After we got the mural finished, I thought why not do memorial bricks to honor current and past military members? Traficante said. We wanted to make sure the bricks were made in the U.S. and that was tough. After a little more searching, he found Miami-based Bricks R Us, which not only sells the bricks but also does laser engraving. The Auxiliary sells two sizes a 4-inch by 8-inch brick for $59 and an 8-inch square brick for $79. Proceeds help to support public safety programs at the Auxiliary. Both de Miranda and Traficante stressed that bricks can be purchased by anyone, military or civilian, for anyone who has served in the U.S. military, past or present. One family, the Allaire family of Madeira Beach, purchased three bricks for World War II U.S. Navy veteran Richard Allaire, U.S. Army Iraq veteran Patrick Allaire and his son Matthew, who is currently serving with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. They were among the initial 47 bricks to go up that took a little longer than originally anticipated. We discovered we needed to stucco the wall so the bricks would adhere better and then we had to seal them to protect them from the weather, said Traficante. We werent anticipating (the extra cost), but we wanted it done right. The Auxiliary spent $1,300 for the stucco work and $400 for the sealant. More bricks will soon be added to the wall. Amenities planned for the wall include a battlefield marker encased in plexi-glass, landscaping, lighting that will allow 24/7 viewing of the wall and two benches facing the wall, compliments of the city of Madeira Beach. For information on buying a brick, call 391-5185 or 482-6204.

This large FDA-regulated clinical trial will likely screen thousands of cats to help provide important evidence-based research that may lead to new insights, treatments, and improvements in patient health. If feline hypertension is diagnosed and treated early, then irreversible organ damage may be prevented. Hypertension is a serious problem that is frequently associated with kidney disease in cats, but most cat owners are unaware that their cat could be at risk, said Dr. Deborah Edwards in a press release. Edwards is a veterinarian and the participating investigator at All Cats Hospital. We most commonly see hypertension in older cats. This is an important study because unfortunately, we dont have any FDA-approved medications to treat it in cats. This veterinary clinical trial offers free study-related medical care for participating pets, which can be very beneficial during tough economic times. For qualified cats, this trial provides some of the most advanced veterinary care available, including diagnostics and on-going medical evaluations that are conducted by trained veterinarians, many of whom specialize in feline medicine. To qualify for the study, cats must: Be at least 1 year old Be diagnosed with kidney disease Have high blood pressure (need not be diagnosed before being screened for the study) Be without severe signs of hypertension (blindness, retinal detachment, nervous system signs) Be well enough to participate for up to six months (participation time depends on many factors, but may be from two weeks to six months) Not have any other severe uncontrolled diseases Meet all other study requirements (which will be explained by the investigator when the cat is evaluated) Cats that meet all the criteria for the study receive free studyrelated medical evaluations and diagnostic tests. If enrolled in the study, cats will receive study medication or placebo, and required monthly exams at no cost. In addition to free study-specific care, owners of enrolled cats also are eligible to receive compensation for their time, and to have funds credited to their account at their referring family veterinarian. For more information, visit www.MyCatCanHelp.com or call 855-254-3971. LARGO A veterinary clinical trial with 35 study sites in the United States and Canada is currently evaluating cats with kidney disease to determine if they also have hypertension (high blood pressure). All Cats Hospital in Largo is among the veterinary practices participating. Kidney disease and hypertension often occur together, especially in older cats. Hypertension is a dangerous condition and is difficult to diagnose because there are no visible clinical signs in cats. As in humans, if left untreated, hypertension in cats can lead to serious consequences, including blindness, heart disease, bleeding in the brain, seizures, worsening of kidney disease, and even death. There are currently no treatments approved by the Food and Drug Administration for hypertension associated with kidney disease in cats, so veterinarians must treat this condition with off-label drugs.

Karla Morenos family of Clearwater fell in love with him, and soon Gizmo entered their home and their hearts. He is a big cheese lover but only the expensive kind and adores sunbathing in the morning. He is very sweet and loving and loves to cuddle, sleep on pillows and going to the beach. Although always playful, sometimes he thinks he is a guard dog, barking very loudly at things. He is definitely tiny but mighty, and his family lovingly calls him their little sugar cube.

Vet discusses this diseaseI can still remember the first case of parvo virus that I ever saw. Unfortunately, it was only a necropsy sample of a dogs small intestine to take back to the University of Florida for evaluation for parvo. I was working in Branford Florida as a veterinary technician the year before I started veterinary school in 1980, and dogs were dying of a new disease in the area and we needed help in solving the dilemma. These dogs would start to become depressed, most would vomit and all of them had severe diarrhea with lots of blood in it. We did everything we knew how to do at that time to save them, but we couldnt. It was a severe time for us because we really had nothing to offer the owners as their pet died from dehydration, despite having intravenous fluids given to them. Vaccine companies had been working on a cure for some time before the outbreak, and the next year, the veterinary profession had a new weapon to fight parvo. It was like night and day difference when we were able to vaccinate puppies for this disease. When the disease first started, no pets had any immunity to it so very few actually lived to pass on the antibodies on to their young. Now with the aid of vaccines, female dogs have antibodies to the disease and can pass them on through their colostrum, which is in the first 24 to 48 hours that the puppies nurse.Why is Parvo so bad in dogs?Pets need to have a certain amount of hydration for the body to work properly. They get water, electrolytes, minerals, carbohydrate, fat and protein from whatever they eat and drink. The bowel has billions of villi that form the lining of the bowel and that is where water and nutrients are absorbed. The parvo virus actually enters the villi to replicate, and this process causes the villi to die very quickly. With other viral diseases, the same thing happens, but the reason parvo is so severe is that it kills the whole villi and not just part of it. It leaves the bowel unable to digest or absorb almost anything. Even if the pet eats or drinks something, it passes right through the bowel undigested and un-absorbed. The villi will regenerate, but it takes many days for that to happen, so the pet is at major risk of dying during that time.What can I do to protect my pet?When you buy a puppy, make sure that the mother was vaccinated before she was bred. This will help protect the puppy when it is very young. As they grow, they need to develop their own antibodies to protect them. Puppies should be vaccinated at least twice, and the second vaccine needs to be at 16 weeks of age or older. Our standard puppy vaccine schedule is to vaccinate them for parvo at 6 weeks, 9 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks to do everything possible for them not to get this life threatening disease.Dr. Wade Matthews graduated from The University of Florida in 1984 and has practiced at The Animal Hospital of Dunedin for 28 years.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563A former Obama White House press aide is calling for an end to the White Houses daily press briefings. The daily briefing has become a worthless chore for reporters, an embarrassing nuisance to administration staff, and a source of added friction between the two camps, Reid Cherlin wrote in New Republic. Its time to do the humane, obvious thing and get rid of it altogether. Amen to that. My complaints about the briefings are different from Cherlins. I dont think theres enough friction between the camps. As I watched Mondays briefing on streaming video, I spied a number of journalists looking at or typing on their phones. The press corps and White House spokesman seem like an old married couple; one knows what the other is going to say before the other says it. The press corps doesnt come off well in many exchanges. President Barack Obama met for lunch with Hillary Clinton. America wants to know: What was on the menu? Spokesman Josh Earnest was ready with an answer: grilled chicken, pasta jambalaya and salad. Theres this awful trend in journalism that, in the rush not to be late, produces stories that preview what is going to happen. Then when, say, a speech is over, its already old news, and so no one covers it. So at the briefings, reporters ask: What will the president say? Then theres the inevitable answer: I dont want to get ahead of the presidents speech tomorrow. Your average American would want to know why an administration does what it does, yet your average journalist wants to know when. In its first interview with the president since 2010, The New York Times asked the president when he would announce his decision on the Keystone pipeline and when he would name a successor to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. When reporters stray from the usual routine, it doesnt do much good. On Monday, CBS News correspondent Major Garrett tried to get a yes or no answer as to whether the administration thinks the Egyptian military is responsible for the violence that has left so many dead. Garretts tactic enabled Earnest to engage in a typical press secretary dodge referring to other officials cryptic statements. Another handy tool: telling reporters to talk to another press secretary in a different department. It cannot be good for reporters to just sit there as press secretaries spin and drill the same old talking points without saying anything revealing. As Cherlin wrote, if there were a Hippocratic oath for press secretaries at daily briefings, it would begin: First, make no news. No problem there; the beat reporters know the rules, including what not to ask. After George Zimmerman and his family received death threats, Gabe Finger, a high-school intern at The Daily Caller, asked press secretary Jay Carney whether the president planned on taking any action to protect the Zimmermans or were they on their own. Carney answered that he was not aware of any threats another favorite dodge in this White House. Then he hit the intern for making a ridiculous statement. You see, Finger asked a question that a conservative might ask. And to this White House, with this press corps, that is utterly ridiculous.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.LETTERSInvest in residents safetyEditor: I have lived on Indian Rocks Beach for three and a half years and consider it paradise. The people, the nightlife, and of course the beach are splendid. One bothersome issue however is the lack of crosswalks at the beach accesses and for years I have heard that something will be done about it. Now its too late. One of my neighbors was recently hit by a vehicle while walking across Gulf Boulevard and has been seriously injured. I wonder if there is a quota on how many accidents have to happen before the city can invest in a few gallons of paint and make it safe for pedestrians to cross? It is too late for my neighbor but hopefully our local officials can see this as the one too many lives endangered by a lack of safety for pedestrians on Gulf Boulevard. I have seen many close calls with children and their parents lugging stuff back from the beach and no safe place to cross. One resident seriously injured is one too many. Can we please make the investment in safety for our residents and especially our children? Jimmy Suvoy Indian Rocks BeachRestaurant couponers, bewareEditor My husband and I had a very bad experience with a local restaurant when we tried to use our $25 coupon. We were told that they were out of lobster tails and fillet mignon at 4:45 p.m. on a Monday, July 29. We had to order a minimum of $37.50 in order to use the coupon. My husband ordered a special at the restaurant, which was not covered by the coupon so the entire $37.50 was for me to order. Wow, have you tried to order that much without that steak or a lobster tail? This was our 52nd anniversary so needless to say, we walked out and wont ever go back. I do think that this restaurant pulled a fast one on us. Only wish that we could name it and give all the folks a heads-up on how they treat their customers. Linda Simon LargoA charity worthy of supportEditor: Here in Pinellas County we have the Religious Community Services, which is not well known but has been in existence for the past 40 years and serves thousands of people every year. The RCS is comprised of a thrift store on East Bay Drive, which helps finance the RCS Food Bank on Druid Avenue, the Grace House, which provides housing for homeless families, and the Haven of RCS and its outreach ministries for battered women and their children. This is a charity most worthy of community support with less than 9 percent for administrative costs. Rev. Timothy Nehals, Board of directors of RCS Palm Harbor On the many uses of small talkOne of the most practiced conversational art forms is small talk. Sooner or later we must all engage in it, whether we want to or not. Mrs. Havisham is waiting for her bus. Her neighbor, Mr. Flark, whom she barely knows, approaches and stands beside her. Neither of them really wants to chat, but neither wants to appear standoffish. What is the compromise solution? Small talk. Lovely morning, isnt it? Oh, yes. Although some rain is predicted. Ah, yes. But we can use it. Weather is probably the most common topic in doing small talk. Thats because everyone is subject to it. The same thing goes for sex, although that sex small talk is trickier, and is usually confined to persons who know each other well. Another area that small talkers are wise to avoid is religion. Mr. Partridge, Ive been reading that your church is trying to attract Guatemalan atheists into the fold. Are you crazy? Such a remark usually ends the small talk, and may lead to gunfire. Health issues can lend themselves to small talk. Again, discretion must be exercised. To use My hemorrhoids are killing me! as an opening line pretty well dooms the conversation from the very start. Chitchat is an alternative form of small talk. Chitchat exchanges usually go on longer than small talk. Also, chitchat is more common among women. No self-respecting man would say, Charlie and I were just chitchatting. Or just chatting. The No. 1 small-talk topic for men is sports. The opening line is usually, How bout them Rays? Better-educated men say, How bout those Rays? The British say, Have you noticed the superlative performance of the Kent-Sheffield cricketeers recently? Smashing, wouldnt you say, old boy? A frightening side of small talk is when you meet someone who obviously wants to do more than make idle, inane comments. This sometimes occurs when the airline pilot has developed food poisoning and the plane youre on will be 80 minutes late taking off. How do you thwart a determined would-be gabber, when youre hopelessly trapped alongside him or her? Here are a few lines that usually bring a halt to unwanted small talk: I have a knife in my pocket. It will stay there as long as you stay silent and dont move. Are you washed in the blood of the lamb? The spirit of L. Ron Hubbard shall never die! Another method of avoiding small talk is to speak in a foreign language, preferably one youve just made up. On one occasion, a wedding reception, I was placed next to a woman who began to regale me about her grandchildren. I replied, Da novia meskup fa rangoo per ellingstork. From that point we just sat quietly and enjoyed our duck lorange. At other times you may welcome small talk. To encourage a person to open up, just ask leading questions. Have you ever been divorced? Please tell me about it. Whose fault was it? Your spouse was a real dork, right? Art shows are the toughest places to make small talk with complete strangers, especially if you know very little about art. When that happens, you should gossip about the net worth of the guy hosting the show, and how he made his bundle. Were you aware that his first wife was a bisexual niece of Picasso who stole six of his paintings and cashed them in? I live in a condominium complex, most of whose residents own a dog or a cat. These pets provide an excellent entry point for small talk. Thats a magnificent Great Dane you have, sir. Where did you buy his saddle? What a pretty kitty, mam. What is her name? Its a boy. His name is Cedric. And so on. I know the names of more pets than I do their owners. A lady on the 4th floor has a tiny dog, a female, called Fenway. The lady is a Boston Red Sox fan. Their home field is Fenway Park. Thats how it goes with small talk. If you pay attention you can compile a huge amount of information. At parties, a useful tool in escaping from a boring small-talk session is to carry a kitchen timer in your pocket. Set it in advance so that the beeper goes off after five minutes. When that happens, just smile and say, Sorry, but its time for my dialysis. Then walk away. Better yet, ask a friend to come to your rescue when you give him/her a high sign, such as tugging your ear. When you signal, the friend rushes up excitedly and says to you, Spielbergs office just called. He wants to talk about that script you sent him. Youd better ring him back right away.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee 71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Wrong playing field for town meetingMore sunshine, pleaseI wonder if I should bring beer or a dessert to Belleair Shore meetings? The town of Belleair Shore commission decided to hold a workshop meeting on July 22 at Commissioner Robert E. Schmidt Jr.s home. Such meetings, at the very least, violate the spirit of the states Sunshine Law, which requires meetings of public boards to be open to the public. According to a 2008 state attorney generals opinion, public boards or commissions are advised to avoid holding meetings at places where the public and the press are effectively excluded. Im not sure that everybody, including some town residents, would feel comfortable walking into a home where a government meeting is held, even if there was a sign on the door that said, Yall come on in! The attorney generals opinion was in response to a question about whether the Village of Highland Park, located south of Lake Wales, would violate the Sunshine Law by meeting in a private home. The attorney writing the opinion said he was not aware that this office has directly addressed the matter of a public meeting being held in a private home, but suggested that the concerns expressed would apply to any space in which the Village of Highland Park chooses to hold its public meetings. I know its hard sometimes for Belleair Shore, population 87, to make meeting arrangements, and even get quorums among its board members. However, if the towns government fails to hold its commission meetings in places that are easily recognizable as public facilities, then the government may leave the impression that it is indifferent to the publics right to know, which is a cornerstone of a free society. Even if baseball star Ryan Howard offered to open his mansion to the public for a commission meeting, Id cry foul. Getting thereFor those motorists who travel frequently through the intersection of Seminole Boulevard and Ulmerton Road and want to know whats up with the construction work, heres an update. According to Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kristen Carson, the section of the road work from 119th Street to the Seminole Bypass Canal is on schedule and expected to be finished in the fall. the contractor is on time, however, we have had a pretty wet summer so we will continue to grant weather days as necessary, Karson said. The right sections of Seminole Boulevard and Ridge Road are currently being widened and are having new curbs and gutters installed. The left roadway for 101st Street needs to be widened and have new curbs and gutters installed still. There is still remaining median work that needs to be done. Resurfacing and final striping also remains, she said. Another phase of the project, from the Seminole Bypass Canal to El Centro/ Ranchero Boulevard, is expected to be completed in the summer of 2015.Remembering Matthew Slightly over a year ago, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton of Largo died of wounds he suffered while encountering an enemy explosive device in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. In a show of strong support, hundreds or more of area residents lined Ulmerton Road and other streets Aug. 10, 2012, as the soldier was brought in a mortorcade to a Belleair Bluffs funeral home. Sitton, a paratrooper, was an outstanding soldier having been awarded a Bronze Star Medal, the Purple Heart, the Army Commendation Medal with one oak leaf cluster, the Army Achievement Medal and the Army Good Conduct Medal. His training included Airborne School, Long Range Reconnaissance Course, U.S. Army Ranger Course, U.S. Army Sniper School, Warriors Leader Course and Advanced Leaders Course. When he died Aug. 2, 2012, Sitton was on his second combat deployment to Afghanistan. I wish his family well and hope that he remains in the thoughts and prayers of the community as when we honor the men and women in the Armed Forces who put their lives on the line for our country.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers.

Teacher from Largo attended Space AcademyLARGO A teacher who lives in Largo joined middle school teachers from around the world on a learning adventure of a lifetime during the Honeywell Educators @ Space Academy program this summer. Megan Higbee, who has taught at Academy of Holy Names in Tampa for seven years, participated in the simulated astronaut training and professional development program at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. The five-day program, which started June 14, included 45 hours of professional development as well as an intensive educator curriculum focused on space science and exploration. As part of the simulated astronaut training, each teacher participated in a high-performance jet simulation, a scenario-based space mission, land and water survival training and interactive flight dynamics programs. Higbee feels that her teaching excels from experience and hopes to bring back the knowledge from Space Academy to the classroom this year, according to a press release about the academy. Only about one-third of eighth-graders have the skills to perform even basic mathematic computations. Honeywell Educators @ Space Academy, created in partnership with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in 2004, is designed to address these trends in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, education by providing teachers with new technical skills and teaching techniques that help motivate students not only in the United States but around the world. Inspiring students begins with inspiring teachers, said Tom Buckmaster, president of Honeywell Hometown Solutions. HE@SA gives teachers an engaging and unforgettable learning experience that heightens their ability to become even more effective educators. Since the programs inception, more than 1,755 teachers have attended this unique and innovative program. In the last 10 years, Honeywell has awarded 210 scholarships to teachers from 27 countries and 42 states. As a leading technology and manufacturing corporation, Honeywell understands the importance of STEM education and its impact on the global economy. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 15 of the 20 fastest growing occupations over the next 18 months require significant mathematics or science preparation. Honeywell is a world-class leader when it comes to educating teachers in STEM education and theyre proving it again, noted Dr. Deborah Barnhart, CEO and executive director of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. These teachers, in turn, inspire tens of thousands of students around the world.

School prepClubs partner for back-to-school drive With support from Staples, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast kicks off the back-to-school season with an in-store call for school supplies or monetary donations to prepare kids and families in the Pinellas community for academic success in the 2013-14 school year. While an alarming number of Pinellas youth fail to graduate from high school each year, the truth is that many kids are falling behind in school, and life, before they even get started, said Nita Smith, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast. Kids need basic school supplies, and through the Supply Drive, these donations will help us provide the needed supplies for back-to-school to keep kids on track for academic success and a great future. From now until Sept. 21, the community can help Boys & Girls Clubs put thousands of school supplies in the hands of Boys & Girls Clubs members by donating money or supplies in local Staples stores collection bins. The National Supply Drive is part of Boys & Girls Clubs of Americas Tools for Back-toSchool initiative, a national backto-school campaign designed to raise awareness about the need for community-based Boys & Girls Clubs that support academic success for youth during critical out-of-school hours. Visit www.greatfutures.org /backtoschool.Hungry Howies raises funds for backpacksHungry Howies is partnering with Blessings in a Backpack and local radio stations to raise $24,000 by Aug. 16 to feed 100 underprivileged children in Tampa Bay for three years. According to Blessings in a Backpack, there are more than 20 million children in the United States at risk of hunger. Providing access to nutritious food results in improved health, positive behavior, increased school attendance and higher academic achievement. The Blessings in a Backpack program feeds elementary school children on the federal Free and Reduced Price Meal Program with a backpack of food to take home for 38 weekends during the school year. The program was named Charity of the Year in 2012 by People Magazines Help Feed a Child Campaign. Blessings in a Backpack feeds the future of America and the value to our community is long lasting, said Jennifer Hearn in a press release. Hearn is president of Hungry Howies Pizza Inc., which was founded in 1973 and is celebrating its 40th anniversary. Many of these children go home to households with little food, and we are proud to help families with hunger relief and to give back to our community. Backpack deliveries coincide with back-to-school time in August for Tampa Bay area schools. To contribute to Blessings in a Backpack, visit www.blessingsinabackpack.org. Were thankful that Hungry Howies is sponsoring this effort, and were excited at the opportunity to inform the Tampa Bay community about who we are and what we do, said Nikki Grizzle, National Director of Marketing & Public Relations for Blessings in a Backpack. There are many children to feed in Tampa Bay, a lot more than people realize.Youth committee hosts open houseCLEARWATER Students who serve on the Pinellas County Youth Advisory Committee invite high school students who live in the county to attend an open house Wednesday, Aug. 21, 3 p.m., in the fifth floor Commissioners Conference Room at the courthouse, 315 Court St. The open house will provide teens with information on the advisory committee and ways they can participate in local government. Refreshments will be served. The Youth Advisory Committee, established in 2001, was developed as a vehicle for young people to provide input and assistance to the Pinellas County Commissioners. The committee assists the commission by helping to identify the needs of young people locally, to organize youth-based activities that benefit the local community, to suggest services needed by young people within Pinellas County and to become active participants, with their adult counterparts, in county programs. Youth Advisory Committee members coordinate the Teens Behind the Scenes program that gives high school students a look at several county facilities to see how services are provided. Other projects, including community service, will be planned for this school year. To RSVP for the open house, or for more information on the Youth Advisory Committee, call 582-2656 or visit www.pinellas county.org/yac.

To dolphins, the underwater world may be a maze of well-trodden streets.In the tropical temperatures of midsummer Florida, Tommy Bahama probably comes to mind more readily than does Robert Frost. Yet it is the cool wisdom of the latters famous poem, The Road Not Taken, that wistfully frames something marvelous and mysterious that the dolphins do at sea: use roads.Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth.A vivid example of dolphins using something like sunken streets occurred recently. Capt. John Heidemann and I watched 11 bottlenose dolphins trekking along one of their watery roads alone or in pairs. That there are roads at sea at all is startling. Dolphin Watch reported this in 2006 as Do as I Do behavior, wherein one or more dolphin groups take the same course across a waterway as a dolphin group that preceded it. It is hard to get used to the idea of undersea roads. From a boat, estuarine waters appear to be molded only by the visible shoreline. Yet, underwater paths appear to be as obvious to dolphins as paths through cornfields to Nebraska teenagers, mountain foliage to Utah moose, or thick reeds to African elephants.Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same.The dolphin road we watched, a little grassy and just as fair, certainly was in want of wear. It stretches across a boxy bay that was more popular with dolphins years ago than it is today. X and her yearling Xanion were the first to appear. Like this stretch of road, X is a periodic visitor. Her yearling announced their presence by bouncing and blurting around the boat. X may have called him back, for he abruptly returned to her side. They let us amble along as they flowed to the north shoreline and headed west. About to head north ourselves to continue our survey, we glimpsed dolphins behind us. We headed back to see Forest and her 2-year-old Meadow. Done with the mornings hunting lesson, they literally rambled along the same route that X and Xanion had taken. Again about to head north to continue our survey, we again glimpsed dolphins behind us. In a nautical dj vu, we retraced the route yet again. Face and her yearling Facet took the same path as the two pairs before them. En route, Face demonstrated how dolphins sometimes encounter food that entices them to stop, spin and scare up a snack like an idly munching hiker. And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way I doubted if I should ever come back.As Face and Facet got to the north shoreline and headed west as X and Forest had done, the dorsal fin of a single dolphin flashed in the distance behind us. Js unmistakable fin showed that she had taken a side road to the north shoreline. We saw no sign of her newborn, which should have been four days old. J headed west like the three pairs before her, but unlike them vanished at speed. Ready to head north to continue our survey, we scanned the waters behind us. A fourth pair appeared in the distance where we first found X. Heidemann retraced our steps once again. Valiant fell in step with us, swimming with protracted strokes that moved her forward gradually. Thus lingering, she waited for the small fin darting off the path to eventually catch up: her calf Vidalia. Back on the path, they ambled to the north shoreline and headed west. We had spent over an hour tracing the same watery route to watch four mother-calf pairs and one mom. But it wasnt over. Unbelievably, a fifth pair of dolphins appeared behind us. It was difficult to catch up to them, for they were propelled by the vigor of youth. They veered off the path to surf a passing yacht. Only then did teen Juno and Pastel reveal themselves by slowing and strolling with X, Face and their baby boys.I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.If tomorrow a behaviorist can say, that at two roads of low and high, a dolphin paused to ponder his way, regretting his choice some distant day, I too shall be telling this with a sigh.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Know how to combat summer attacksChinch bugs may be the best known lawn pest, but there are diseases that are pests too. Humid, sticky, muggy and wet welcome to the dog days of summer in Florida. Whereas we like to hide out in the air conditioning during the summer, lawn diseases are having a field day out in the wet, hot weather. High temperatures and lots of rain and moisture are the perfect combination for fungus to thrive and infect our lawns. St. Augustinegrass is susceptible to three major fungal attacks during this time of year, namely gray leaf spot disease, Phythium root rot and take-all root rot. Gray Leaf Spot can slow growth, thin established lawns and kill large areas of the lawn during hot, humid and wet weather usually from May through September. The easiest way to spot the disease is to look for an oblong leaf blemish that has a dark edge with a center that is a gray color. Only watering in the early morning hours just before sunrise can reduce disease occurrence. The longer the leaf blades stay wet the more likely they are to become infected. If we are getting rain every few days then there is probably no need to apply more water. It is important to minimize stress and avoid excessive flushes of lush rapid growth during the rainy season. Applying Atrazine to the grass is stressful, so timing is important. Once temperatures get above 85 degrees avoid applying this herbicide. Consider spot-treating problem areas and make sure the grass is being mowed at the proper height. Phythium root rot can appear any time of year, but it is always associated with wet soil conditions. Excessive watering, abundant rainfall or poor drainage conditions can all promote this disease. Since the roots are affected, the symptoms on the leaves are due to what is happening to the root system. There is a general decline in lawn quality. Small or large areas become yellow, light green, or brown in color and become thin. The lawn will seldom die from this root rot. Roots will appear thin with few root hairs and will be discolored, but not black and rotted. To prevent the disease, improve drainage and reduce watering the lawn, especially before periods of high rainfall. Avoid watering schedules that keep the soil wet. During periods of high rainfall mow grass at the proper height and mow frequently enough to only remove onethird of the leaf blade per mowing. Apply a fertilizer that has an equal amount of nitrogen and potassium. Take-all root rot is naturally present on the roots of warm-season grasses. The trigger for disease development is high rainfall and stressed grass. The disease is normally seen during the summer and early fall months, especially during periods of prolonged rainfall. Since this is a root disease, the early symptoms can only be seen on the roots. If the grass is only slightly stressed you may never see the above ground symptoms of this disease. Irregular, yellow or light green patches ranging in diameter from a few inches to a few feet will be the first above ground symptoms. Once you do see above ground symptoms on the grass, the roots have been under attack for two -three weeks or longer and they will be thin and off-white in color with isolated black lesions. As the disease progresses the roots will become short, black and rotted. The grass stolons or rhizomes (runners) may have black lesions and may even begin to rot. Entire plants will die and can lead to large dead patches. This disease can easily be mistaken for chinch bug damage, so the first step in any pest management program is to identify the pest (weed, insect or disease). Once above ground symptoms are seen this disease is very hard to control, so prevention is the key. The grass must be mowed at the correct height and mowed frequently enough so that only one-third of the leaf blade is removed each time it is mowed. Scalping is very stressful because it damages the growing point. Apply equal amounts of slowrelease nitrogen and potassium. Avoid nitrate-nitrogen products. Micronutrients should be applied as a foliar (leaf) feeding and they should all be in the sulfate form. If the root system is badly damaged the roots will not be able to get their nutrients from the soil so frequent foliar feeding of all nutrients (N, P, K and micronutrients) in small amounts will be necessary. Remember to follow local and county ordinances. Avoid using herbicides on St. Augustinegrass as this is a stressor.

The event is a resource-monitoring program where community volunteers snorkel to search for scallops in select areas within Boca Ciega and Lower Tampa bays. The event has been conducted annually since 1993 with the goal to monitor and document the health and status of the bay scallop population. Tampa Bay Watch will coordinate 45 volunteer boaters with more than 180 participants to search selected sites for the elusive bay scallops. Volunteers with shallow draft boats are still needed for the event. For information, visit tampabaywatch.org. We can witness the health of the bay by tracking the number of scallops found each year, said Peter Clark in a press release. Clark is president of Tampa Bay Watch. Every year we hope the number of scallops found increases, which means that water quality and habitat are also improving in our estuary. Some years, volunteers find many scallops and other years they dont. Factors that may affect the scallop population include red tide, high rainfall and storms. An all time event high of 674 scallops were found in 2009. Bay scallops, disappeared from Tampa Bay in the early 1960s when the bay water was highly polluted from dredging operations and industrial and municipal wastes. Tampa Bays water quality and seagrass beds have since improved to levels that will once again support the bay scallop population. In fact, a 2013 research study data by Southwest Florida Water Management Districts Surface Water Improvement and Management Program states Tampa Bay now supports 34,642 acres of seagrass beds, the largest amount of seagrass measured since the 1950s. Reservations are required for the Great Bay Scallop Search. Registered scallop searchers will meet Saturday, Aug. 24, 9 a.m., at the eastern side of the boat ramp at Fort De Soto County Park, in Tierra Verde. There, they will receive survey equipment and instructions for the monitoring event. At each site, a weighted transect line 50 meters in length is laid along seagrass beds. Snorkelers count scallops along each side of the transect line, within one meter of each side, creating a 100-square-meter survey area. This year the Sea World Busch Gardens Conservation Fund and the Tampa Bay Estuary Program sponsor the scallop search. Bay scallops or Argopecten irradians are secretive bivalves in the same family as clams and oysters. They may reach a shell size of 3 inches and spend their short 12to 18-month life span hiding in seagrasses of waters like Tampa Bay. Scallops are filter feeders, therefore they are highly sensitive to changes in water quality and can be used to measure an ecosystems health and signal changes in water quality. Adult bay scallops can pump as much as 15.5 quarts of water per hour improving water quality resulting in long term growth of seagrass beds. Although bay scallops are edible, it is illegal to harvest scallops in Tampa Bay in order for restoration efforts to be successful. Tampa Bay Watch is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) stewardship program dedicated exclusively to the charitable and scientific purpose of protecting and restoring the marine and wetland environments of the Tampa Bay estuary encompassing over 400 square miles of open water and 2,300 square miles of highly-developed watershed. Tampa Bay Watch involves more than 10,000 youth and adult volunteers each year in hands on habitat restoration projects. For information on upcoming events, becoming a volunteer or member, call 867-8166 or visit www.tampabaywatch.org.

Tampa Bay area residents will have an opportunity to see Leftover Cuties live in concert when the band takes the stage Friday, Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m., in Jaeb Theater at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa. Tickets start at $23. Call 813229-7827 or visit www.straz center.org. From the opening theme of Showtimes The Big C to the infectiously happy Big Smile that propelled this summers Olympic Samsung Galaxy S III commercial, Leftover Cuties are a band millions have heard but its entirely possible that many may not know who is behind the music. Securing Game Called Life as the theme for The Big C helped put Leftover Cuties on the map, but whether its the artful placement of Through It All on the hot FX series Justified, or their cover of When Youre Smiling that is now leading the way on a worldwide Hyundai campaign, the Cuties sound is starting to catch fire thanks to their irresistible combination of sultry vocals, pop-perfect songwriting and old-school musicianship. According to the bands biography provided by Girlie Action a media, marketing and management company Leftover Cuties embodied all of the good things in life on their debut album Places To Go things such as Love songs, California sunsets and the ukulele. The album was produced by Tony Berg and features 11 breezy, sophisticated songs evoke a magic-hour stroll on the beach with a special someone. Their sound is difficult to describe. To call Leftover Cuties retro or throwback would be too easy, yet, their music fits beside Billie Holiday. At the same time, its remarkably current in its sex appeal, its sophistication and its confidence. The Cuties music plied with upright bass, accordion, the brushed drums and ukulele is not slavishly oldtimey, but honors its forebears in an appropriate and appealing way. There is a faithfulness to melody combined with sharp playing and stylized, confident, character-laden singing. According to Girlie Action, when Leftover Cuties chanteuse Shirli McAllen steps up to the microphone, she commands attention because shes got something to say not to mention a beguiling way of saying it. Her voice is sultry and aching with longing, yet in control. When McAllen first moved to Los Angeles from her native Israel (where she served in the army), she was still finding her way musically. I grew up listening to Israeli music, s grunge rock and singer songwriters, McAllen says in the Girlie Action bio. After a couple of years trying to make her mark in the citys crowded singer-songwriter scene a lot of good writers and singers, but not a lot of memorable personalities she struck up a friendship with multi-instrumentalist and Cuties bass player Austin Nicholsen. One day, Austin walks in with a ukulele, McAllen says, I thought it was a toy. He started playing and I started singing the lyrics. We wrote Game Called Life in about five minutes. With a newly defined musical direction, the duo dubbed themselves Leftover Cuties. Stuart Johnson (drums), and Mike Bolger (keys, horns, and accordion) came on board to flesh out the sound, and the band was off and running. In 2010, that sweet tune written on a napkin in five minutes was tabbed as the theme song for the acclaimed Showtime series The Big C starring Laura Linney. The bands fan base swelled exponentially. The Spark & The FireNow the band has a new album to promote. The Spark & The Fire was released July 23. The title of the album stands for that yearning to hold on to the beginning of things, says McAllen on the bands website, www.leftovercuties.com.

The Los Angeles-based noirpop quartet Leftover Cuties released their sophomore full-length album as well as its first single, One Heart, a powerhouse track filled with handclaps and stomping percussion. The band also released a video for One Heart. The Barcelona-filmed video features a brassy jazz-pop orchestra lead by McAllen in a prohibitionera mansion. This time around, the band has created a 12-track journey that swings easily from smoke-filled Bourbon Street speakeasies to quiet island getaways. McAllens silky voice provides the hook as the bands sound pulls listeners in with upright bass, accordion, piano, brass, brushed drums, and the trademark ukulele. Like many second albums, the creation of The Spark & the Fire proved to be a difficult process. I think we all came into it with big expectations, and we put a lot of pressure on ourselves, McAllen says. Sometimes that can get in the way, but we managed to rise above and make something were West Coast Players to audition for Wedding Secrets Sally (any age) The maid. She isnt particularly fond of Betty and will take whatever advantage she can. Hooker 1 The more aggressive and street savvy of the two Hookers. Hooker 2 The more sexually dressed, but less intelligent of the Hookers. Millie The male caterer. Production dates for the comedy Wedding Secrets are Sept. 20 through Oct. 6. Visit www.wcplayers.org. CLEARWATER Tom Costello will host auditions for the West Coast Players production of the comedy Wedding Secrets, by Joe Starzyk, on Sunday and Monday, Aug. 11-12, 7 p.m., at the theater, 21905 U.S. 19 N. Donna Donnelly will be co-directing and Cathy Winchester will be stage manager. Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Costello is looking for six men and eight women as follows: Betty (45 -60) Mother of the groom to be. She is going through menopause and is not particularly happy about her sons upcoming marriage. He is her pride and joy. Robert (45-60) Father of the groom-to-be. He is a successful businessman who has difficulty showing physical affection. Lately that has been intensified, as his business is failing and so is his sexual prowess. Joan (45-60) Mother of the bride-to-be. She loves her kids, though she is having issues with her youngest daughter. She and her husband had been growing distant and now are getting divorced. Dan (45-60) Father of the bride-to-be. He loves his kids and though they arent communicating, he loves his wife. He doesnt want a divorce, but doesnt know how to stop the process. Grace (40-55) Joans out of control sister. She is a larger than life figure, who jumps from one bad relationship to another. Bill (20s) The groom. He loves Susan. He loves his mother. Therein lies the dilemma. He is a mommas boy and doesnt know how to deal with the two women in his life. Susan (20s) The bride. She loves Bill. She could do without his mother. She wants to make a good impression, but quickly realizes that Betty will have none of it. Samantha (16) Susans angst ridden teenage sister. She struggles against her mother in a very age appropriate way. She is anxious to garner negative attention. Jake (17) The kindly but dumb boy next door. He is however very charming and this quickly attracts the interest of Samantha. Jake is in over his head with Sam. Joey (40-55) The grooms uncle. He is a man of multiple personas and ironically the conscience of the play.

Proving its no fluke, she soon lines up two more projects in quick succession. At an industry party, Carol has a one-night stand with the seductive Gustav, neither realizing who the other is. Its only later that Gustav learns Carol is the thief who stole the V.O. job from him and vows to make her pay. Soon afterwards, Sam discovers Carol is in the running to become the official voice of a blockbuster, female-centered movie quadrilogy. Threatened by his own daughters rising star, Sam tries to discourage her while secretly pushing his reps to land him the gig instead.
