By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Largo staff presented new promotional materials and branding for the citys expanded recycling program Aug. 13, along with reporting that the yearlong implementation of the program is still on schedule. The curbside, mixed recycling program for residents is scheduled to start Feb. 3. We are very excited with the program. Were very excited about how its going so far, Public Works Director Brian Usher told commissioners. The new program would allow residents to collect 11 new types of materials in the same type of wheeled carts the city currently uses for trash collection. Three automated side-load vehicles already purchased and in the process of being built will collect the recyclables from residents driveways. The city also has already purchased 18,000 new recycling carts for the program. In them, residents will be able to collect aluminum foil; steal and tin cans; clear, brown and green glass; milk and juice paper cartons and juice boxes as well as many more types of plastic than the city currently can accept. Part of the citys marketing materials includes labels for the carts themselves, explaining what types materials the city will accept. The new carts will be delivered with a bag of educational fliers and a refrigerator magnet, customized with the residents specific recycling By LEE CLARK ZUMPELARGO Theres a new professional theater in Pinellas County, and it has found a home at Country Day World School in Largo. New Stage Theatre and Conservatory was the brainchild of Chris Jackson and cofounders Alison Burns and Bruce Danielson. The theater was officially established last year when it joined forces with Country Day School. A fully functioning black box theater space was built, its doors opening last March just in time to host a series of summer camp programs. According to Jackson, New Stage Theatre and Conservatory came about fortuitously as analogous objectives merged. After being hired as Country Day World Schools performing arts director, I helped design the black box theater in the new campus the school was building for their middle school program, said Jackson. After seeing the success of the schools performing arts program, I presented Bruce Danielson with a program Alison and I were developing for the Largo area. It eventually became New Stage Theatre and Conservatory. The relationship between the two entities the theater and the school is mutually beneficial. Jackson explained New Stage Theatre is in residence at Country Day World School. They have provided the theatre with a luxurious space to perform professional theater, Jackson said. The partnership between these two entities certainly provides opportunities for Country Day students to explore performing arts in classes that are much more personalized than their regular curriculum. That said, the professional productions planned by New Stage Theatre are just that: professional. As far as participating in the professional shows, there isnt much room for LARGO Kickball event to benefit firefightersThe Largo Firefighters are hosting a charity kickball tournament to raise funds for two of their own on Saturday, Aug. 24, 9 a.m., at Whitesell Softball Complex, 12555 119th St. .

TORRESLARGO The imminent retirement of Chief John Carroll, ending his 33-year career with the Largo Police Department, has been a long time coming. In fact, even when he took the departments top position in June 2010, succeeding Lester Aradi as he retired, Carroll had an end date set, due to pension considerations set in motion seven years ago while he was deputy chief. Since then, Ive been consciously preparing for transition and succession, said Carroll, 54. Deputy Chief Jeff Undestad, 48, will take over responsibility of the department Sept. 7The way he tells it, Undestad has been following the chief up the ranks since he joined the department in 1990, and Carroll acted as his first field-training officer. Through my entire career as well as his, every time he had a promotion, shortly thereafter, Id be promoted, Undestad said with a laugh. Carroll said hes pleased to be leaving the department gracefully, on the high of receiving accreditation with excellence from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies Aug. 3, one of only a small handful of agencies to earn the distinction. The department has prepared for the transition, he added. Its nice to hand the reins to Jeff and to know that things are running well, Carroll said. The reputation of officers and the cases they work and the service they provide is, to me, exemplary, and its nice to be associated with that.A legacy of consistencyUndestad said his overall goal will be keeping the department running as well as it has under Carroll. Hes created quite a legacy here. Hes a modest man (and) wont brag about himself, but hes done a tremendous job for this police department, Undestad said. A native of Oswego, New York, Carroll moved to Largo with his family in 1967 and has maintained close ties to his community ever since. After graduating from Largo High School at age 17, he entered the U.S. Army to serve in the military police, knowing he was unable to Photo courtesy of AUBREY DANIELSONChris Jackson and Alison Burns star in Maybe Baby, Its You, which kicks off the inaugural season for New Stage Theatre and Conservatory Aug. 15 through Sept. 1. The production will be performed at Country Day World School, 11650 131st St. N., Largo.County to consider gender identity protections By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners will consider amending its human rights ordinance to protect gender identity during a public hearing on Aug. 20. The amendment would prohibit gender identity discrimination under Chapter 70 of county code relating to human relations that prohibits discrimination in employment, housing and places of public accommodation, Human Rights director Paul Valenti, said during a commission meeting Aug. 6. Jurisdictions throughout Florida, as well as 17 states, have taken steps to stop discrimination stemming from a persons gender identity. In addition, legislation providing for those protections is pending in the U.S. Senate. Pinellas County leaders are evaluating the need in the local community. Valenti said the countys code currently prohibits discrimination based on ones sex. He recommends striking references to sex and replacing it with gender. County code would define gender as including but not limited to sex, pregnancy, childbirth or medical conditions relating to pregnancy, gender-related self-identity, self-image, appearance, expression or behavior, whether or not such gender-related characteristics differ from those associated with the individuals assigned sex or physiology at birth. The code exempts religious corporations, associations and societies and religious educational institutions in the areas of employment and places of public accommodation. The code also would not apply to the school district as an employer. Under the ordinance, persons who identify with a sex different from their physiology, or their sex at birth, wouldPhoto by JULIANA A.

He joined the Largo Police Department in 1980 and has worked in patrol, as a detective and as a SWAT team commander, gradually working his way through every rank except sergeant. Ive had the opportunity to work on pretty complex investigations. Ive traveled on homicide cases. Ive been to the FBI National Academy. Ive put some bad guys in jail, Carroll said. So I have lots of war stories, but through all of those things its all been done as a team, and thats really gratifying. During the eight years as a detective in the crimes against persons unit Carroll said he worked a number of homicide and sexual battery cases. There are people serving prison sentences that will be in jail long after Im retired, he said.

4A Largo Leader, August 15, 2013pre-professional students, Jackson explained. For our productions we strive to hire union actors and designers so there is higher standard. The community also has had a hand in helping New Stage Theatre a reality. The community thus far has been extremely kind to us, said Jackson. There has been a great outreach via our website asking for volunteer opportunities, a really great way to get involved. We have even had a few sponsorship offers from local businesses. Professional theater is so healthy for this community both culturally and economically, and I think that is recognized already in these early stages. The theater is currently prepping for its first full season of main stage productions. Kicking off the theaters inaugural season will be Maybe Baby, Its You, by Charlie Shanian and Shari Simpson. The production will run Aug. 15 through Sept. 1, at New Stage Theatre, inside Country Day World School, 11650 131st St. N., Largo. Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 3 p.m. Tickets are $25. Call 813-817-2585 or visit newstagelargo.org. Maybe Baby, Its You boasts a comedic night about the search for that most elusive of entities, the soul mate. Jackson and Burns star in the show. The production covers ground from the first kiss to the not-so-golden age of marriage. The show promises to be a heart-felt night mixed with high energy as these two actors transform into 26 characters throughout the evening. Jackson explained that for this first season, New Stage Theatre selected plays the audience will have fun with. Our goal is for our patrons to relate to the material, to enjoy their experience, Jackson said. We have chosen very difficult shows for our professional actors and designers, which is great. Artists love a challenge. The plays we have selected are award winning, critically recognized pieces. New Stage Theatre and Conservatorys stated mission is to strengthen our communities, our artists and our youths minds by producing high caliber theatre and offering affordable pre-professional performance training for all. Jackson echoes that objective in describing the importance of theater in the community and what he, as artistic director, uses to measure the theaters success. Box office sales are great, it keeps the theater healthy, he said. However, that should never be the goal of an artistic director. Professional theater offers something special to a community, on an economic level, a cultural level, and a spiritual level. As the first real form of storytelling, theater has evolved and transformed as much the people who create and view it. Success of a theater is reflected in the experience its audience has. If the audience doesnt feel fully satisfied, we are missing something. If the audience hasnt experienced professional theater, than we have a mission to get them in the theater. Jackson observed that as technology increasingly serves as societys primary source of entertainment, live theater is perhaps more valuable than ever before. In a technological world, where our children our digital natives and we are stimulated constantly, theater can provide an escape, Jackson said. In my experience, the real jewel of professional theater is being able to both entertain and rediscover that human connection. Its amazing, that complete strangers will laugh at the same jokes and applaud at the same time.The people behind New StageJackson, originally from Tampa, graduated from Blake High School for the Performing Arts in 2007. He began acting locally and regionally, taking his first professional role as Rick in a production of Six Degrees of Separation. At age 18, he became the first performer to write, act, and direct in the Young Dramatist Program in its 12-year history. Jackson was cast in the lead role of Film Ranch Internationals first feature film Brain Jacked, and scored several commercials as well as the recurring role of Donovan on MTVs The Inbetweeners. Burns, a co-founder of New Stage Theatre, is the music director at Country Day School and serves as educational director of New Stage Conservatory. Burns graduated from New York Citys American Musical and Dramatic Academy in 2001.

Described as an entrepreneur and a theater enthusiast, he relocated to the Tampa Bay area in 1993 and has lived in the Largo area since then. Danielson serves as the director of admissions at Country Day School and as producing director at New Stage Theatre.The inaugural seasonNew Stage Theatre will present five productions in its inaugural season. Following Maybe Baby, Its You, the 2013-14 season will continue with the following shows: Little Shop of Horrors, by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken; Oct. 10 through Nov. 3. Holiday Party of One, by Alison Burns with musical arrangements by Stan Collins; Dec. 5-20. Title of Show, with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and book by Hunter Bell; Feb. 6-23. The Rainmaker, by N. Richard Nash; April 327. New Stage Theatre offers theatergoers more than just a new venue: It provides an opportunity to see professional productions in an intimate setting. While the Tampa Bay area is already to home to several exceptional professional theaters, there is room for one more and Jackson believes Largo, at the heart of Pinellas, is the perfect spot. We chose Largo to be our home base, because the area was lacking what we offer as a theater and conservatory, Jackson said. Jackson is confident the county can support another professional theater. On a grand scale, I feel Pinellas County is growing a theater community and our audiences show that, Jackson said. From the breathtaking productions of freeFall Theatre and American Stage, St. Petersburg hosts something very special. Now our community has a new theater company to feel proud of.

THEATER, from page 1Abe permitted to use restroom and other facilities of the gender with which they identify. If there are objections, every effort should be taken to ensure fair, non-discriminatory use of the facility for all people. Businesses can still maintain dress codes, Valenti said, as long as they allow individuals to dress in a style that best fits their gender identity. Commissioner Karen Seel, who along with Commissioner John Morroni voted against a similar amendment in 2008, asked if other jurisdictions had found it difficult to apply discrimination laws. Valenti said they had not. There was no nightmare scenario or apoplectic issue that came to fruition, he said. She also asked if there had been problems with single-sex facilities. Valenti said there had been no widespread issues. He added that improper conduct could happen regardless of sex, race or religion. He said the amendment did not require adding separate facilities for transgendered persons. He said no one would have to install a third set of restrooms. Todd Richardson with Equality Florida told commissioners that the amendment would be a very important addition for Pinellas County, making it more attractive for employers and employees. It adds protection for all people, he said, Protection no matter who they are. Michael Keefe, executive director of Trans*Action Florida, thanked the commission for moving forward with a courageous conversation. Only former sheriffs candidate Greg Pound spoke against the amendment, accusing the commission of doing evil. Commission Chair Ken Welch said it was time for the fear mongering to stop. Forty years ago it was black people in restrooms No more fear mongering. Im so over that, he said. Commissioner Norm Roche said he supports scheduling a public hearing on the matter, but he didnt voice support for the amendment. Im not into creating laws that make attorneys money The way this country is going were going to be back here adding political parties. The public hearing portion of the Aug. 20 meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St., Clearwater.

GENDER, from page 1A RECYCLING, from page 1ALargos negotiations with county over Highland Avenue fail By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO During the Aug. 13 work session, staff reported to the Largo commission that negotiations with the county for the city to take over the portion of Highland Avenue between Rosary Road and East Bay Drive have failed. The city has been anticipating taking over responsibility for the maintenance of Highland Avenue, which staff sees as a vital conduit between city amenities, for many years. Earlier this year, the county offered to transfer the right of way along with a fund of $300,000 toward any improvements, but would not promise any future funds. Along with the transfer, the city would be responsible for the cost of relocating any county utilities needed to make improvements. The city asked the county to reconsider what the commission deemed unacceptable terms, but to no effect. As such, the city can no longer pursue its intended improvements to the roadway. The city will reallocate the more than $3.3 million set aside for the Highland Avenue back to the original funding sources. We feel there is no longer any viable options for this moving forward, Community Development Director Carol Sticklin said. The city will be improving the sidewalk along Highland Avenue between the new Highland Recreation Complex and Eagle Lake Park, both opened since negotiations with the county began. The improvements would be done within the Rosary Road project, set to be designed in the upcoming fiscal year. Largo also will ask the county to commit at least the offered $300,000 amount toward bringing Highland Avenue up to acceptable conditions, currently an unfunded project at the county level. While repaving the existing road wont transform it to the community street one friendly to pedestrians and bicycles as Largo had anticipated, its a needed improvement, Stricklin said.City to spend $31.5 million on infrastructure The work session also included a detailed update on the wet weather monitoring and pumping system project, a major infrastructure improvement project estimated to cost $31.5 million. The project, in the final design phase, is intended to tackle overflows in the system caused by heavy rainfall, said Leland Dicus, city engineer. It will include the construction of about 14 miles of sewer mains and the reconstruction of seven pump stations within Largo, according to city documentation. The project will not only address the overflows that are occurring today, but provide capacity in the collection system for future growth and redevelopment within the city, Dicus said. The improvements will help the citys economic development goals by creating a more business-friendly environment with a capacity for growth, he added. Given the magnitude of the project, it was important for the commission to hear the details of how the improvements were developed and how they will address the overflows, City Manager Mac Craig said, explaining hour-long presentation that resulted. The project is slated to be completed in the spring of 2015. The improvements are expected to have a life of 20 to 40 years. The construction will involve some temporary roadway lane closures and night work, but the project should move through the city fairly quickly, Dicus said. The city will be launching a public outreach campaign to let residents know of the projects impacts. City staff also asked the commission for direction regarding financing for the project. Commissioners agreed that the city should try to save financing costs by pursuing a low-interest loan from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The city also will be exploring other financing options, should the project not be granted enough of a loan to cover the expenses. pickup day of the week. The citys communication and marketing division also is preparing to advertise the changes through city LED signs, a promotional video on Largo TV, a dedicated website, social media, newspaper advertisements, billboards and artwork on the recycle trucks themselves. A new logo for the mixed recycling program features the updated slogan Largo Recycles More. The city would eventually transition back to the original Largo Recycles logo after an extended period using the updated, though similarly looking, logo, explained Kate OConnell Oyer, communications and marketing supervisor. The city has reserved the site www.largorecyclesmore.com to promote changes to the system. Additionally, staff will try to engage its younger residents by asking them to come up with their own design for a promotional billboard. The winning design will be featured on a real billboard. The new recycling carts will be blue, and the collection trucks will be orange, OConnell Oyer said. Usher emphasized that the trucks must be unique enough to identify them as Largo collection trucks but also must be distinct from the citys own garbage trucks. I can tell you from experience that one of the largest public relations difficulties is when people perceive that recyclables are going into a garbage truck, Usher said, explaining that color is the quickest way to determine if a complaint concerns a Largo truck. We can tell very quickly if its one of ours or not. A lot of people dont bother looking at the details but they definitely notice the color. As part of the process, the public works department is still working with IT staff to assess the appropriate technology needed to utilize the Radio Frequency Identification microchip tags that will be installed on the recycling carts. The tags will help the city to track the carts and could allow for recycling incentive programs. The city wants to make sure any implemented software will be able to handle the citys future plans, Usher said. Its enough of an investment that we dont want to do it more than once if we can avoid it, he said. One way the technology could be useful would be in addressing increases in contamination coming from a specific neighborhood through focused notices or advertisements, Usher said. Materials like plastic bags and six-pack plastic holders can cause mechanical problems for the company processing the recyclables. Usually, the vendors ... know that theres going to be a certain amount of material in there thats not going to be acceptable to them, Usher said. Its only when we start exceeding that amount that theyll notify us. Staff clarified that recycled material would not be rejected if the lid or the label were still attached. The city will be requesting bids from recycling processing vendors in September. In total, the project is budgeted to cost $2 million in capital funds. Staff anticipates savings in garbage-tipping fees as well as operating costs due to efficiencies will offset the cost.

CHIEF, from page 1A Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESRetiring Police Chief John Carroll, left, poses with current Deputy Chief Jeff Undestad at the Largo Police Department. satisfaction of getting a case, working with a victim, helping bring justice and closure to a victim, thats very important to me. Hes always found working in his hometown advantageous, though arresting people in the same community where he lived with his wife and two children, now ages 29 and 26, can be a little awkward, he said. I think if you treat people right, you dont have to worry about that, even if you do have to arrest them, he said. I never had any incident. I never lost any sleep over that. He became deputy chief in 2002, assuming the responsibility for the operations of the department under Aradi. Thats a really, really good foundation for becoming the chief, Carroll said. Lester (Aradi) did that for me, and I tried to do that for Jeff. Over the years with the department, the city of Largo has grown in population as well as physical size, creating a budgetary challenge for the police department. The city now serves a static population of 75,000, though for the police department, its more than that, Carroll said. Were in the middle of a county with a million people in it and everybody drives through Largo to get somewhere else. So we serve a bigger population than 75,000, Carroll said. I would say there are times when it seems like, it feels like, its double that. He added that he did not anticipate having to compete with other city services for funding as the city budget got tighter and tighter over the last several years. The challenge was making sure the service got provided and delivered with the shrinking budget, he said. Its a balancing act. Carroll said he and his wife of 33 years, Linda, will be enjoying some travel in their joint retirement for the immediate future. After that, they are considering some business ventures, and Carroll said he might enter politics. Probably next election season, Ill look for a seat on city commission, he said. My wife tells me I have to have something to do or Ill drive her crazy. It would be another opportunity to serve. As far as his time with the police department, Carroll said he hopes he will be remembered for just consistent service over a long period of time.The new chiefUndestad has a lot of experience in all parts of the organization; he is a skilled collaborator, diplomat, compromiser and independent thinker, Carroll said. He cares about people, cares about the employees, cares about the citizens, he said. Undestad has never worked for any other law enforcement agency. He started off his career in property management in Minnesota where he grew up. When he realized he would have to earn a second degree in order to become a police officer in Minnesota, an instructor encouraged him to try to get experience in another state first. Through some connections in Florida, he ended up applying in Pinellas County. Within just months, he was moving his few possessions to Florida to start the police academy. As luck would have it, at that time, Largo was going through a pretty significant hiring, he said. Everything kind of just fell right into place. He never anticipated becoming a police chief. In the beginning years with the department as he worked as a K9 officer, on the SWAT team, as an evidence technician and for the volunteer program Undestad was determined to not seek a promotion. But around year eight, he tried out for sergeant and got the position, he said. Then he was promoted to lieutenant, despite his continued determination to not rise through the ranks. I had to concede by the time I was given the opportunity to be the deputy chief knowing that the current chief was on a strict timeline, that yes, my goal here is to become the police chief, Undestad said. He said he hopes to gradually increase the departments number of sworn officers beyond its current force of 137. My intent is to come in as chief and evaluate the department for the first year, because theres really no need for changes. Theres nothing broken, nothing that needs to be fixed, he said. He said he would like to reinstate some of the public outreach programs the department has cut due to budget concerns. Those targeted to children are especially important to him. He sees the departments ongoing battle against pedestrian traffic fatalities and the recent increase in gang activity as ongoing challenges. He also pointed out an increase in violence against officers on service calls. At the beginning of the year, the departments had about 10 percent of its patrol officers out on light duty due to injuries related on violence from calls for service. (That) is a little alarming to me, especially taking over as chief, he said. Undestad and his wife of 10 years, Michelle, have two boys, ages 5 and 7. They live on the border between Largo and Clearwater. I love my kids, and I love to spend as much time as I can with them. This job and location has been to provide that. Undestad said. Undestad already has been transitioning to chief over the last five months or so, he said. In preparation, he named current Capt. Brian Brown as the next deputy chief and recently hired a new administrative assistant, a position that has been vacant since May. Ive kind of been doing three jobs, he said. Im looking forward to the next couple of weeks where order can be restored in the office up here, and things can get back to normal operation. Though hes been with the department for 23 years, Undestad doesnt have a retirement date in mind. With little kids, I dont want to be too hasty in picking a retirement date when theyre still in middle school, he said. My goal is to keep the department stable and moving forward, and not have to worry about any changes in command for the next few years. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Topics included next years budget, emergency medical services, transit and surface water management. The video is posted on Pinellas Countys website, www.pinellascounty.org, the countys Facebook, Twitter and on YouTube, www.youtube.com/pcctv1. This address is part of our ongoing effort to help our citizens stay connected with their local government, Welch said in a press release. Its a way of keeping our citizens up to date with important issues as initiatives and projects move forward throughout the year. Welch began his address with an update on development and the approval process for the fiscal year 2014 budget, which he describes as one of the main responsibilities of the commission. The $1.7 billion proposed budget is available for review at www.pinellascounty.org/budget. There is still time to weigh in on next years budget, Welch said. From now through early September, the Commission will receive additional public comment on the 2014 budget, and we encourage your feedback via the website, by calling the budget office at 727-464-3596, or by attending and speaking at one of our Commission meetings or work sessions. Two public hearings on the budget are scheduled. The first is Thursday, Sept. 5, and the second and final hearing is Tuesday, Sept. 17. Both begin at 6 p.m. in the fifth floor Assembly Room at the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St.Emergency management servicesOne of the most important budget challenges facing our county involves our emergency medical services, or EMS fund, Welch said. EMS is a vital service provided by the county in partnership with our cities and fire districts, and with our ambulance provider, Paramedics Plus doing business as Sunstar. The countys EMS system responds to more than 136,000 calls for emergency medical assistance each year. When you dial 911 for a medical emergency in Pinellas County world class medical response is only minutes away, Welch said. The reality is however, that while the system is clinically excellent, it does face fiscal challenges due to a number of factors, including the decline in property values in recent years, combined with an increase in the cost of EMS services, including personnel, fuel costs, and medical supplies. Welch promised to update the public in his November address about efforts to implement a plan by consultant Fitch and Associates that could reduce the cost of EMS. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org and look for the link to the Fitch Report in the Special Interest section.TransportationOne thing about our community that is not yet world class is our system of public transportation, Welch said. This is especially true in the area of public transit where Pinellas and the broader Tampa Bay region lag behind every other major metropolitan area in the United States. He provided an update on the transportation and economic development plan, and the community transportation conversation GreenLight Pinellas. The foundation of this initiative is a November 2014 referendum for a 1 percent sales tax to modernize our bus system (PSTA), and add light rail connections between Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park, Gateway and St. Petersburg, with an eventual connection to Tampa, Welch said. The plan also includes the elimination of the current PSTA property tax. For more information, visit GreenLightPinellas.com.Surface water managementAn important part of our countys infrastructure is our surface water management program, Welch said. Surface water management entails two important focus areas water quality and storm water management. While many Pinellas cities have a dedicated funding source for surface water management, the county does not. With higher federal and state standards for water quality, combined with an aging infrastructure of pipes, ditches and drains in the unincorporated area, the time has come for Pinellas County to address the issue of water quality and storm water management in a more effective and sustainable way. The commission is considering levying a dedicated fee to property owners in the unincorporated areas to pay for a comprehensive surface water management program. Welch said the fees would provide money to repair and refurbish older sections of stormwater pipe, dating back to 1978, which is at high risk of failure. The program will extend the life of the entire stormwater drainage system and improve the health of our environment, he said. If the commission approves the new fee, it would become effective in October. The 2014 fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

The two were later arrested and charged with burglary of a boat and are suspects in a number of vehicle thefts in the same area. According to the sheriffs report, deputies received the initial call from Daren Nailos, 36, of Palm Harbor, who reported that his girlfriend was missing. When deputies arrived on scene, Nailos informed them he had been swimming in the water with Jessica Frehe, 36, of Dunedin and at some point lost sight of her. Frantic she could be in distress, Nailos called for emergency personnel to respond to the scene. As efforts to locate Frehe were underway, a deputy in the area spotted Frehes vehicle driving from the scene. The deputy conducted a traffic stop and discovered Frehe as the driver. While talking with Frehe and verifying her well-being, multiple reports of burglarized vehicles in the immediate area began coming into the Sheriffs Office Communications Center. After conducting further interviews with both parties it was discovered they had broken into a boat at 2671 St. Josephs Drive East. While on the boat, they stole various items to include food and alcohol. After burglarizing the vessel, they both began to swim back to shore, and Nailos lost sight of Frehe and eventually reported her as missing and possibly in distress in the water. Both admitted to the vessel burglary and were possibly involved with several vehicle burglaries nearby, the report said. Deputies are awaiting forensic results for additional charges. Nailos and Frehe were booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Each charged with burglary. Bond was set at $5,000. Frehe also is being held without bond on a Pasco County warrant.Missing sunglasses prompt investigationPALM HARBOR Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are asking for help from the public to locate a man wanted in connection with the theft of sunglasses from a Palm Harbor store. According to detectives assigned to the burglary/pawn unit, the crime occurred between 3:50 and 4 p.m. July 29 at East Lake Eye Care located at 3434 East Lake Road, #3 in Palm Harbor. A suspect was seen viewing sunglasses at the store. When he left, an employee noticed sunglasses missing from open racks. Surveillance photos show the man removing various types of sunglasses from the racks and putting them in his jacket pockets. The suspect is described as a white male in his 50s, approximately 6 feet tall, heavy build with black, straight, collar length hair and a mustache. The suspect was last seen wearing a medium blue polyester s style suit with a white button down dress shirt and dark dress shoes. Anyone with information on this theft is asked to contact Detective Mitchell Smithies of the Burglary/Pawn Unit at 727-582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.Police arrest 21 in prostitution crackdownCLEARWATER Clearwater police completed a two-night crackdown on prostitution in the East Gateway area, finishing early in the morning on Aug. 10. A total of 21 arrests were made, according to Clearwater police. There were 15 prostitution-related charges, with eight men and seven women arrested. The arrests were made between Drew and Court streets and Missouri and Highland avenues. This is all part of the departments efforts to crack down on these crimes that affect the quality of life for residents and merchants in the area.

Exp. 9-30-13 This is the last of a five part series on operations at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County government delegates its responsibility to provide jail services to the sheriff. The cost takes a big chunk from the general fund budget. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri explained the job of detention and corrections bureau during a June 5 work session. He said the bureau is divided into five divisions central, north (medical included), south, support and court security, he said. The central division is responsible for booking, intake, direct supervision for housing, hospital details and supervision. The north divisions duties include a checkpoint, compound transports posts and administration of the juvenile assessment center contract. The jail has a capacity for 3,112 inmates. In 2012, the average daily population was 2,993. About 100 sleep on the floor in makeshift beds each night. About 1,277 beds are located in areas currently closed due to budget cuts. Gualtieri explained while the numbers showed sufficient capacity for population numbers, classification issues did cause a lack of capacity. He explained that felons couldnt be housed with non-felons. Males and females must have separate areas. Violent offenders must be segregated from non-violent inmates. Sometimes, theres just no room, he said. Each deputy is responsible for 80 inmates for a 12-hour shift. Its dangerous, Gualtieri said. They have no guns, Tasers, back up is outside if a fight breaks out. Its a tough job. Its a dangerous job. Many of the jails inmates are pre-trial detainees. Others are those sentenced to less than one year who will serve their time in the county jail. PCSO received $8 million each year from the federal government for housing federal inmates. Gualtieri said the money that comes in from taking in federal inmates is very important to us. In 2012, 46,339 people were booked into the Pinellas County Jail and 46,681 were released. The average length of stay is 24 days at a cost of $105 a day per inmate. Gualtieri said the range of stay is two hours to two years. All inmates, except those who come from the federal government, are charged $20, which about 60 percent pay. The remaining 40 percent will stay in collections for three years. In 2012, the jail took in $500,000 in fees. The jail population has gone down in recent years, from a high of 3,368 in 2008. Gualtieri attributed the trend to alternative sentencing and electronic monitoring. The sheriff reported that use of force in the jail was down, going from 548 incidents in 2009 to 447 in 2012. The deputies who work in the jail do a great job, he said. Inmate health care provides basic level medical care, Gualtieri explained, something he feels the jail is legally, ethically and morally obligated to do. Inmates are charged a $10 co-pay for voluntary medical care initiated by the inmate, which has cut down on those going to sick call for alternative reasons. Males and females were using it as a dating service, he said. They would sit and talk in the waiting room. More than 100 local specialty providers are under contract to provide medical services at the jail at rate discounted by 10 percent. Negotiated rates include Medicare and Medicaid rates and others per individual contract. Were as cost-effective as anyone in the state, Gualtieri said.Safe HarborPCSO opened Safe Harbor on Jan. 6, 2011 to provide a cost-effective jail diversion program aimed at the countys homeless population. The facility has a capacity of 470 beds 370 inside the facility and 100 in the outside courtyard. The building has space for 85 females and 285 men. Both men and women can be placed in the courtyard. Gualtieri said over the past two months, fewer people were staying at Safe Harbor. He said the problem was less people are willing to go. Theyd rather go to jail, he said. He said at Safe Harbor there are rules, and they have to seek services. In jail, they can just sit on their cot, watch TV and get their meals. They dont have to do anything. He said staff was working on the problem, especially now that the number of ordinance arrests was going back up, especially in the city of Clearwater. We have to work to make jail less attractive, he said, adding that for the most part it was the hardcore homeless and people from out of town that preferred going to jail. As the population decreases at Safe Harbor, it increases at the jail. It costs $13 a day to house someone at Safe Harbor versus $105 in jail. We dont have too far to go until there is no room in the jail, he said. It is a daily juggling act. Gualtieri also said there is a need for another secure facility in the county for mental health and substance abuse issues. The Marchman Act is a state statute requiring temporary holding of persons under the influence of intoxicants for a maximum of 72 hours, if not charged with a criminal offense. The sheriff said there is no place to take them except for the jail and Safe Harbor. Other alternative centers in the county only take intoxicated people if they are already enrolled at the center. If alcohol poisoning is suspected, intoxicated individuals can be taken to a medical facility. We dont have the capacity or the funding, he said. Sheriff explains agencys oversight of county jail operations Each detention deputy is responsible for 80 inmates for a 12-hour shift at the Pinellas County Jail.Community invited to help plan for future water supplyCLEARWATER Tampa Bay Water is seeking community input on the regions future drinking water supply as it updates its longterm master water plan. The agency is asking residents, businesses and community groups to complete an online survey at www.tampabaywater.org/FutureWater. The survey will be available until Aug. 23. Tampa Bay Water is asking for input on seven future water project concepts, source water protection and regional water efficiency efforts. Community participation is a critical element to everything we do at Tampa Bay Water, said Ivana Blankenship, planning and outreach program manager for Tampa Bay Water. More than 2.3 million people in the region receive our drinking water through our member governments. It is important for those residents to have a say in the planning process. Updated every five years, this 20-year plan takes into account more than what the agenadhering to regulatory requirements for water quality and protecting regional drinking water sources. The long-term plan studies the current water supply system to determine if there are operational efficiencies that could yield additional water supply. It also identifies potential water supply projects that could meet the future drinking water needs of the Tampa Bay region. Tampa Bay Waters current system should meet the regions drinking water needs for the next decade, said Blankenship. But, it takes planning to ensure the region has enough drinking water for future generations. For more information on the long-term master water plan and to participate in the process, visit www.tampabaywater.org/ FutureWater.

She would see a patient present initially with a single complaint, and start on one medication. At times the medicine would create another problem, so a new medicine was ordered, and then another, etc. Cate felt that she needed to choose a different path of healing. A four year Master's Degree Program prepared her for National Boards, and the title Acupuncture Physician. This 3,000 year old medicine is one which recognizes the mind/body connection. The goal of treatment is to restore harmony, which allows energy to flow in a smooth, unobstructed manner, and all systems benefit. Recognizing the wonderful things about Western Medicine, Cate does not encourage patients to disregard, or alter the instructions of their MD, rather to discuss with them their desire to try this complimentary medicine.

Cate Emily 081513 Where did the summertime go?The summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye. It seems like every summer goes faster and faster. I thought maybe it was just me, so I asked a few friends if they thought this summer just flew by, and they agreed. I am trying to figure out where the time goes. As I started thinking about the summer, I realized how fast my kids are growing up. They are moving up another grade level this year. Its hard to believe that my oldest daughter is going into fourth grade. In my mind, it seems like just the other day she was born. My youngest, my baby, isnt really a baby anymore: she is going into second grade. I remember the first time I took my oldest daughter to preschool. I thought it was going to be hard for her, but I think it was harder for me to let go. She was almost 4. She went to the preschool at our church and was in the VPK program, short for Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten, a state-funded preschool program. I remember thinking three hours a day, five days a week is just such a long time to be away from my daughter. By the end of the year, those hours and days went by quickly. Before I knew it, she was graduating from VPK. After VPK, I had another first with my daughter: kindergarten. It was her first time going to school all day. I had a hard time leaving my daughter, but my daughter had a harder time letting me go. It was awful the first few weeks of school. My daughter cried every day for me not to leave her. She had a wonderful teacher, so it wasnt that. She just wanted me to be with her. After a few weeks it got better. Its just a transition kids have to go through, some more than others. In first, second and third grades, it wasnt so hard leaving my daughter. Each year, it has gotten easier. I think I am more relaxed because I know the school more, and I know the teachers better. As a parent, its hard letting your kids go to school when you watch the news and see school shootings and kids being bullied. You want to protect your kids, but most of us cant be at school with our kids. We just have to just trust that they will be safe. I would say it gets easier with the second child and it does, but I still have had my moments. I remember leaving my second daughter for the first time at preschool and just bawling my eyes out. I was sad because I knew she was the last child I would have in preschool. With my oldest daughter, everything is a first. With my second daughter, everything is the last. I still keep asking myself, Do I really have a fourth-grader and a second-grader? Moms with young kids, my best advice is to make sure you take the time to enjoy them. You cant get years back and you cant make time go any slower. Ive tried by telling my girls they cant grow up, but it hasnt worked yet.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 8, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2Mom FamilyFun.blogspot.com.

Weiner, Spitzer and Milner are only three of a crowded list of office-holders who have been damaged after being caught with their knickers down. After witnessing the furor over these sexual adventures, I got to wondering: In todays culture, what other behaviors, traits or beliefs might be equally harmful to a politicians career? I came up with several possibilities, stated below in no special order. GROSS TABLE MANNERS. If I were running for mayor or governor and assaulted a plate of spaghetti the way George Costanza of Seinfeld does, I wouldnt have a chance of being elected. Few things can turn off a potential voter faster than to see a candidate shovel food down his or her piehole and then compound the offense by talking with his mouth full. OBESITY. William Howard Taft, our 27th president, tipped the scales at about 330 pounds. Obviously, his corpulence did not prevent his being elected to high office. But can you name many other really fat political leaders? I cant. Given their druthers, Americans prefer their politicians to be on the lean and good-looking side. New Jersey governor Chris Christie violates that dictum, but hes reported willing to shed significant poundage as he explores the path to the White House. CHEATING AT CHESS. Would you vote for someone who cheats while playing chess with his 12-year-old daughter? I wouldnt. How could you trust such a person? I dont know of anyone like that whos now in politics, but as soon as we get all our hacking, wiretapping and illegal surveillance tools fully in place well be able to smoke out and prosecute such nasty people. FACE LIFTS. Ive run into recent reports that Hillary Clinton has undergone some cosmetic surgery. Shes looking awfully good these days, said one informant. It may be because shes no longer Secretary of State and can get some rest. But my money is on a face lift. Which indicates shell be going for the presidency in 2016, right? If so, would you be biased against her for undergoing some cut-and-paste work? Some folks would, but I believe most voters would not. Cosmetic surgery is so common today its almost not worth noting, except when the procedure is botched and the patient (whether male or female) ends up looking like a squint-eyed, frozen-smile kewpie doll. In such cases, pity not criticism is usually in order. HYPER-FLATULENCE. Can you imagine a candidate winning a major election if he or she repeatedly broke wind, without meaning to, while making a speech or shaking hands with a crowd? Ive never heard of that occurring with a candidate, although I have met a number of ordinary citizens thus afflicted. Would that handicap discourage voters from supporting the candidate? I believe such a delicate question should be widely debated beforehand, just in case a gaseous but otherwise highly qualified public servant one day comes on the scene. GRAMMATICAL IGNORANCE. I hesitate to list this shortcoming as a possible black mark on a politicians score sheet, because so many Americans neither know nor care about the basics of good grammar. Also, a significant number of excellent public servants have shown that their employing such linguistic lapses as between he and I and nearly unique have really not mattered. ATHEISM. There was a time when a stated belief in God, Christ or some other well-established deity was an absolute requirement for anyone seeking an office more lofty than Animal Control. Americans even those who themselves lack any well-defined religious faith have felt more secure with a self-confessed Methodist, Jew, Catholic, or Muslim holding the reins of authority. That day may have passed. Recent surveys have shown that increasing numbers of citizens have no religious affiliation, and dont especially care whether you or I do. I doubt if many candidates in the next few years will blatantly declare themselves as atheists or agnostics, but a number of them will. And many voters will do themselves proud by viewing such a declaration as irrelevant to a candidates overall merit. SPEAKING THE WHOLE TRUTH. Pile all of the above-listed election risks together and they would not total half of the defeat-guaranteed potential as would total honesty. Someone has said that a completely forthright person in high office, such as the presidency, would be a catastrophe for the nation. He/she would be a ticking time bomb, just waiting for the moment to reveal some scandalous or distasteful fact about himself, his deepest beliefs, his enemies, allies, donors and his previously undisclosed track record. Two weeks of such absolute honesty could tear our country apart.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun.

Drivers SeatBob Driver Snowden savors the taste of libertyAn absolutely true news item: After spending a month confined inside a Moscow airport, former U.S. intelligence contractor and NSA leaker Edward J. Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia. Sweet freedom, at last! I thought Id never get out of that crummy terminal. After a month of gagging on Cinnabon fumes, even this sooty Moscow air smells like daisies. Today I walk the streets a free man, accompanied by my two new best friends, Anatoly and Boris. They do NOT work for the KGB, OK? Theyre professional tour guides who came strongly recommended by President Vladimir Putin. By the way, Vlad (thats what he told me to call him) has been a totally righteous dude about this whole fugitive-spy thing, unlike a certain uncool American president, who keeps trying to have me arrested and prosecuted for espionage. The Russians have generously given me a Wi-Fi chip and free Internet, so I can go online anytime I want and see what the world is saying about me. A recurring theme in many blogs and chat rooms seems to be: What was that kid thinking? First of all, I believe with all my heart that Americans have the right to know about the far-reaching surveillance tactics employed by our government to monitor its own citizens. I also believe Ive restarted an important debate about national security and privacy. Could I have handled this whole thing differently? Sure. In retrospect, theres definitely something to be said for anonymity. But, hey, cut me some slack. Im only 29 and this was my first time leaking classified intelligence data. Ill be the first to admit that my plan wasnt 100 percent seamless. For example, I should have figured out what new place I wanted to live in before I revealed my identity as the leaker. Clearly, I underestimated how difficult it would be to find a country that would welcome me, especially a country as free and open as the United States. I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong, I declared in a video interview. This was weeks after Id left my place in Hawaii and flown to Hong Kong to meet secretly with reporters. The hotel was nice, but after the stories broke I couldnt go out anywhere. How do you like your accommodations, Mr. Snowden? Can we bring you another pitcher of green tea? More noodles, perhaps? I found another place to crash in Hong Kong and gave a new interview revealing that the U.S. National Security Agency had hacked government computers in China. I assumed that in gratitude for receiving this heavy-duty info, the Chinese authorities would let me stay as long as I wanted. Wrong. No problem, Eddie Boy, says some WikiLeaks dude. Well get you into Cuba. Now I was seriously jazzed because Cubas supposed to be a lot like Hawaii sunshine, great beaches, good surf, a chill music scene. First connection (or so I thought) was at the Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow. There I scored a ticket to Havana on Aeroflot (which is sort of the Russian version of Jet Blue, minus the TVs in the seatbacks), and Im ready to roll. Load up my iTunes with the Buena Vista Social Club but then?... More bad news. Apparently the Cuban regime wasnt super excited about me moving there. I never really got the whole story. The plane left without me is all I know. So I was stuck in the Moscow airports transit area, feeling not so great about how this whistleblower stuff is playing out. The security guys wouldnt even let me into the main terminal to hit a Starbucks and check out the Sharper Image. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama kept bugging the Kremlin to hand me over. Putin basically flipped him off, which bought me some time to scout other destinations that had fewer ice storms. The Bolivian government has offered me asylum, but Ive been thinking about what happened down there to Butch Cassidy and Sundance. I might take a pass. Venezuela also said I could come down, and maybe thats where Ill end up in a few months. At least its warm there. Ecuador sounds pretty sweet, too. Dont get me wrong; I love the Russian people. Anatoly always insists on carrying my laptop for me, and Boris gave me a cell phone with unlimited minutes. The coverage here is so amazing that somebody usually answers even before I finish dialing!Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. Carl HiaasenThe definition of a republicE d i t o r : What is our Republic? Perhaps you have asked this question yourself recently. There seems to be good reason for any confusions and uncertainty. Many different forms of government have called themselves a republic. For instance, there was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the current Peoples Republic of China. Both of these governments were formed out of communist revolution. Both are quite different from each other and neither stands up to the definition of a republic. And then there is the United States of America, a republic by definition. It too was formed out of the ashes of a revolution. What makes our republic different from others? The basic description of republic found in dictionaries is that the power of a country is held by the people and their chosen representatives. But these definitions omit an important part that defines the uniqueness of our republic that the people gain control of their own lives and fortunes. The government of our republic serves the interests of the people the people do not serve the governments interests. This is an important distinction. This is the dream and ideal arrangement for men who wish to be free. The basic mission statement of any republic includes transferring political power from an oppressive government (such as a dictator, emperor or monarch) to the people. This is the purpose which fires up the society to stand against an oppressive and often powerful government. However, there are differences in the actual formation of all these republics. The United States republic was unique, because its founders were unique men. Where communist leaders rose to be masters of their populations, our founding fathers refused to take on that role. They served as elected leaders and then stepped down to live free lives amongst the rest of us, leaving society to select its leaders and representatives. Instead of grabbing and holding the powers gained by the Declaration of Independence and the revolution, they forged two vessels in which the powers of the people were enshrined and locked away from tyrannical hands. Nestled within these vessels were the power and future freedom of the people of the United States. These two vessels are the Constitution and Bill of Rights, both based on ideals envisioned in the Declaration of Independence. It is ironic that these documents sit in Washington, D.C., so they can be viewed by those who visit them, and yet have no home in our schools and education system. Instead, today our schools teach communist doctrine. The only vaults that guarantee the safety of the contents of these vessels and their continued use are the minds and hearts of each American and our future generations. If you have a desire to understand what our republic consists of, you should not need to ask another person. The answers you seek lay in these three documents. Just because you did not learn about them in school is no reason to remain ignorant of them. By using various dictionaries and references on the Internet you can read and understand them. If you have trouble with reading the originals, modern versions exist which make them easier to understand. Read these if you must, but never rely on any single interpretation and always go back to the original documents. Mass ignorance of these documents is why we are losing what was fought for and created for how can we continue to create something we no longer understand? So, Ill answer the question now what is our republic? It is the concepts laid down in these three priceless documents. Lose them, fail to understand them, fail to educate every generation on them and we lose the republic so bravely fought for so caringly and intelligently forged to guarantee freedom and equality under the law for all men. That so many people are now asking the question, gives hope that we may someday actually achieve our republic. That we were never taught these documents in school and now have to ask the question is frightening. D a v i d R Y o u n g ClearwaterMedian landscaping unimaginativeE d i t o r : Failed attempts to beautify the road medians on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard have raised a lot of eyebrows around Clearwater. The recently relandscaped medians look even worse than the old ones did but, more to the point, why did they need to be replaced? And who do we need to thank for such a dismal and unimaginative piece of work and waste of money? The city of Clearwater could learn something from Largos road medians landscaping on East Bay Drive. For one thing, they do not use any drab, dull or messy bark mulch, instead they use flowering yellow ground cover. They also make good use of low maintenance blue liriope and other colorful shrubs such as Cuban gold duranta, plumbago and firecracker plants. The difference is very striking and obvious; it shows how well chosen plants and creatively landscaped medians can make a difference. The Clearwater Beach Causeway is another fine example of good landscaping. A trip to Sunken Gardens would have been more enlightening. M i c h a e l M a r i b o n a ClearwaterWalsingham Park: a wastelandE d i t o r : Thanks to the current county commissioners, all the monies spent on Walsingham Park has turned into an unused, bug-infested wasteland of dead foliage everywhere and infested with exotic vines killing not only roadside foliage but trail paths that are impassable at times. After personally burning up two expensive trolling motors in trying to negotiate just the upper portion of the lake, I have not put my boat in the water but once this year. There have been times when people could not put a boat in the water due to clogged up ramps. So much for the millions of dollars spent to build a park that nobody uses. Now the fishing museum is being forced to vacate its premises, which is a valuable tool for locals, visitors and especially the young people to learn valuable lessons on what Florida has to offer them. Apparently, these things are no longer important enough for our leaders. If you are not going to repair an empty property, tear it down. If you are not going to care for a park that costs millions to complete, close it up and prepare to pack your bags. My last inquiry into the conditions at the lake and park in general resulted in the same old excuses: budget cuts and lots of personnel. Apparently, the people that still have jobs are not interested in the conditions. How about this? Pool all the resources and personnel from all the parks and send them to a different park, the worst first, for several days to do cleanup, mowing, cutting out area foliage, removing exotics and cleaning up pathways and trails. If they cant do the job, get rid of them and hire people who are willing to work. Also, ask for volunteers. This was done years ago on Lake Seminole by the local fishing club and was a big success until people looking for political gains got involved. I would also be interested in learning if our commissioners as a whole have ever walked, biked or driven through our parks in the last couple of years?

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerAccording to the 2012 Alzheimer Disease Facts and Figures, one out of eight older Americans has Alzheimers, therefore it is likely you have a loved one or close friend touched by this disease. The more you learn to better understand this disease will help in how you communicate with your loved ones. As tempting as it might be to say, "Mom/Dad, you just said that," this is not helpful. If his/her statement seems to beg for a response, just say, "Oh, OK, Mom/Dad," or "Thanks for telling me," in a positive way, and move onto something else. When you remind him/her they are repeating themselves, what you're really doing is lowering their self-esteem. It is best not to make a person with Alzheimer's disease feel impaired or ashamed. Try to respond in a positive manner, directing conversation to focus on a memory topic they are still familiar with, thereby supporting their self worth.Caring for a person with dementia is stressful. Seeking the help of support groups, and finding a responsible caregiver who can give you a break when needed is important. It is one thing to finally realize someone close to you has Alzheimers. Its a completely different thing to accept that fact. Comfort Keepers provides our caregivers with extensive, hands-on training, which includes preparing them to care for persons with Alzheimers disease and dementia. Comfort Keepers in-home care services are available in all of Pinellas County. Loved ones who need special Alzheimers care can benefit from Comfort Keepers services because the caregivers are specially trained to address the needs of people from early on-set to late stages of dementia and Alzheimers. The unique Interactive Caregiving system Comfort Keepers integrates, allows each caregiver to develop a real and personal relationship with each senior. Its meaningful, honest and helps to develop trust, companionship and a feeling of safety between the caregiver and the elderly loved one.Consider Comfort Keepers Alzheimers care services for any loved ones or friends who are in need of extra care around the home, visits in assisted living or to provide respite care relief, knowing they are being cared for by people who truly care.081513Alzheimer Disease Facts SPC focuses on campus enhancements during summer break By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE In preparation for the fall 2013 semester, which begins on Monday, Aug. 19, St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus saw significant changes and construction this summer. The college spent $4.5 million, primarily from the states Public Education Capital Outlay funds, to enhance 12 areas on campus. Its all part of a major thrust to put the facilities in place to ensure students success, said Provost Dr. James Olliver. The first construction project was completed in mid-July, when the college bookstore relocated from the University Partnership building to a larger space in the library building that once housed a caf. This move cost $150,000 and was funded entirely by Barnes and Noble. The vacated space in the UP building will be used to expand the caf in that building, doubling its size, Olliver said. This project will begin in the fall. The most significant changes made to the UP building this summer include the construction of a large recreational Student Activities Center and technology upgrades to the Digitorium video wall. A computer lab was remodeled to create the SAC, which was previously located in a much smaller office. The college also recently promoted Malena Buck, formerly a student adviser, to coordinator of Student Life and Leadership. With this new space, shell begin a peer advisory program this semester. The Digitorium Video Wall, which hadnt been upgraded since it was originally constructed over 10 years ago, now features leading edge technology, Olliver said. Previously, the wall used three screens, but now its one solid wall and the image covers the entire wall, he said. The UP buildings Artway, a small hallway used to showcase area and SPC artists, also saw enhancements this summer, including the installation of track lighting and more visible signage. The Technology Learning Center building also saw significant improvements. The Learning Center, where the majority of tutoring takes place, added an informal lounge area, with a TV, couch and reference materials. This is more of a relaxation area, said Jennifer Gregor, information services librarian. It gives students the opportunity to see whats going on in the center. Technological and visual enhancements were made to the writing and math labs, with new smartboards and a wall-to-wall whiteboard. And the main area of the Learning Center was repurposed, with more seating where students can plug in their laptops, and a layout that encourages collaboration and group projects. Were being much more intentional about our tutoring services, Olliver said. Our focus is on student success. The college also constructed a brand new addition to the TL building, a more informal area with TVs, tables and vending machines. Olliver is most proud of the new science lab in the TL building, which allows SPC to offer chemistry and microbiology for the first time. A new classroom also was constructed in that wing and is ready to be converted into a second lab as soon as the funding and need is there, he said. This is a big deal for us, he said. Its very important programmatically. Now we can offer things we werent able to before. New faculty offices were also created in the TL building, as well as in the library. For the first time since we opened this campus, all full-time faculty has an office, Olliver said. These faculty members previously utilized space in the portable offices. Because they have relocated to new, permanent offices, this allowed the college to expand some of its programs into the portable buildings. The veterans program now has more than double the space it once had, making a more inviting environment for veterans seeking services on campus. Military Times named SPC one of the top 15 most veteran friendly colleges in the country. Student Support Services also was able to expand into more space. With so much space available for study groups and those collaborating on projects around campus, Olliver saw the need for a quieter study space. So the college created the Silent Study Room in the library. Some students need that kind of quiet environment, Olliver said. Other changes in the library building include the relocation of Dr. John Chapin, the dean of Natural Sciences, as well as the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions to new second-floor offices, and the construction of the Center of Excellence in Teaching and Leaning, and Faculty Development Center. The major project in the library building, though, was the construction of a state-of-the-art tiered classroom. The classrooms design is based on Seminoles City Council chambers at City Hall, and Olliver said he hopes to hold a council meeting at SPC at some point. I think the community can be proud of what weve done this summer, Olliver said. Weve added functionality and activities that ensure students success.

All humans have a personal relationship with stress, but most of us dont understand how prolonged stress can damage our bodies to the point of death. Do you remember watching Mutual of Omahas Wild Kingdom on TV when you were a kid? Almost every episode involved some critter getting into trouble and ultimately facing the fight of their life or running like the dickens to get away. When the deer escaped, her stress response shut down. Humans are designed with the same kind of fight or flight system, which was meant to be a momentary event until we are out of harms way. Its not meant for the long haul. Our bodies go through amazing changes when we are in tremendous fear. The blood pressure goes up, while our immune system goes down, the good cholesterol is decreased while the bad goes up and we get a power packed surge of adrenaline that gives us the feeling we can handle anything. The problem I am seeing more often is that many of us cant seem to find our off switch, and we have a strong tendency to switch on our fight or flight system for only psychological reasons. Thinking about global warming, job security, traffic, politics, impressing other people, family problems and death, we turn on the same stress response. The important difference is that were not doing it for real physical reasons and were doing it non-stop. When we dont turn off our stress reaction, we unwittingly do harm by overexposing ourselves to hormones that are only meant to kick in when we are in dire straits. Thats one of the reasons why so many Americans have fuzzy brain, weight gain, heart and stomach problems and suffer from anxiety and depression. So, if we witness a small child running toward traffic, this beautifully designed alert system will kick into high gear and move us into taking fast action now! The not-so-wonderful thing is that a large percentage of illnesses are caused by mental and emotional stress, and we, as a society, are no longer experiencing fearful thoughts every now and then. Many of us are getting sicker and sicker because we are living in constant fear and struggling with uncontrollable worry and doubt. Were wearing ourselves out. I recently visited the National Institute of Mental Health website where I read that Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in America. In essence, 19 million people suffer from mental illnesses that involve irrational fear responses. These disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. Most stress, anxiety and depression is caused by imaginary challenges or by falsely believing that we have no choice or possibility to succeed or win, to be healed or be financially independent or create and keep private or professional relationships. Did you know that most healthy successful, strong people do not have fewer challenges in life? They simply have learned how to deal with the daily tasks and challenges more effectively, so they dont even create stress. If you talk with highly successful folks, many will tell you that they actually enjoy overcoming challenges and difficult tasks in life and to do this on a daily basis. You may want to try some of these ideas: Our thoughts can create illness and if they are strong enough to make us sick, then they are strong enough to make us healthy. Pay attention to what you allow in your mind. Keep it positive. Talk about your fears with someone you trust as this will help make the problem appear smaller and more manageable. Develop an understanding of what youre afraid of and this will help you to begin to learn how to erase it. If youre afraid to try something, start working in small steps. When you become familiar with a scary thing slowly, it can be more manageable. Stop trying to figure out why youre afraid. Knowing why you developed a particular fear probably wont help you in overcoming it and may actually delay your progress. Notice if you hold your breath. Sounds funny, but good, regular breathing is vital. Dont underestimate the importance of sleep. Your body and mind require rest. Prolonged stress negatively impacts our performance. Learn to take control of your thoughts, emotions, and surroundings and how you deal with problems. If you want a longer, healthier life full of success, learning to manage your stress is of paramount importance.

About 75 to 80 youths participated in the allday tournament.Belleairs Got AirSpanish mackerel and trout fishing heats upSpanish mackerel fishing is only getting better with each passing week. Hard-bottom areas within a mile of shore are holding good numbers of fish. Try Sand Key, Blinds Pass and the Redingtons. They should all be holding Spanish mackerel as well as the occasional cobia. Also, the artificial reefs from three to 10 miles out are also good places to target. On a recent snapper trip to one of the near-shore reefs we had the snapper and the mackerel chummed up behind the boat. Although only a few baits made it past the mackerel to the snapper, it was still really good fishing. Upon returning from our trip offshore we decided to try for some trout along a deep grass flat just inside the pass. The tide was moving in quickly and packs of terns were dipping on schools of small fry bait. It definitely looked promising. After tossing out a couple of handfuls of frisky chummers, it didnt take long for the water to begin to boil. There were trout anywhere from 12 inches up to 18 inches, popping all around the boat. As we caught trout after trout all the while continuing to chum to keep the bites coming, we managed to lure in a school of Spanish mackerel, ranging in size from 18 to 24 inches, and they definitely were the best mackerel of the day. Catching bait has been good lately; small pilchards have been staged up right inside the swash channel all along the beach. These baits are anywhere from an inch and a half up to 2 1/2 inches long so I would definitely recommend a quarter inch mesh cast net. It also is a good idea to lighten up your hook so that your bait swims naturally. A size 1 gold Aberdeen hook has been working great with the small baits and the slightly longer shank than a traditional live bait hook will help to prevent cut-offs from the Spanish mackerel.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

This second half push is designed to get all Rays fans out to the ballpark for One More Game. Were grateful to our partners WDAE and the Tampa Bay Times for helping bring all this together.

Its a rare thing that a bigbudget Hollywood summertime action flick turns out to be better than expected. Elysium bucks the trend of cookie-cutter summer blockbusters by constructing a narrative around real-world political issues. The film is director Neill Blomkamps second, following 2009s surprise hit, District 9, an action sci-fi film that revolved around themes of xenophobia and social segregation and served as an allegory for race relations in South Africa. With Elysium, Blomkamps social consciousness is again at work, this time crafting a science fiction thriller around a story about the haves vs. the have-nots the 99 percent against the 1 percent, in more contemporary terms. Set in the year 2154, Blomkamp paints a dystopian future in which only two recognizable classes endure. Most everyone lives in squalor in the global shantytown that is Earth. A handful of uber-wealthy aristocrats have escaped the post-industrial decay on the planet and inhabit the seemingly immaculate, exclusive orbital colony, Elysium. Blomkamp gives the audience plenty of visual prompts to distinguish how very different these two extremes truly are. The rich have gone to a great, gated community in the sky: They dwell in comfort, breathe clean air, host poolside parties in a park-like setting and live in mansions equipped with medical devices that look like tanning beds and heal everything from minor boo-boos to cancer. Down below, Earth is looking pretty bleak. Everything that could collapse probably has, from the economy to the ecosystem. Cities are in ruins. There is rampant overpopulation, poverty, crime everywhere the viewer looks, Blomkamps future Los Angeles is filthy, overcrowded and inhospitable. Oppressive police in the form of robots hassle the masses, and one gets the impression that all are assumed guilty of something until proven otherwise. In this vision, the American Dream has been displaced by a daily struggle for survival.

Offer expires 8-31-13080113 St. Augustine: a city rich in history and attractions Todays Scene from the Road takes us a half-day trip up the east coast of Florida to St. Augustine. With its milder year-round climate you can visit anytime. Founded in 1565 by the Spanish, St. Augustine is the oldest continuously occupied European established settlement in the continental USA. This could be the real birthplace of America, as the Pilgrims didnt step onto Plymouth Rock until 1620. It served as the capital for Spanish Florida, then as British-controlled Eastern Florida until the capitol was established in Tallahassee in 1824. But you can go back further to 1513 when explorer Juan Ponce de Len discovered the area as he searched for, and some say found, the fountain of youth. Visit St. Augustine and step into 500 years of history. It has been influenced by its first residents the Timucua Native Americans, the Spanish, French and British before being influenced by a name synonymous with Florida history. Henry Flagler, arrived in the 1880s and promoted the area as a winter resort for wealthy northerners. Acquiring several local railroads, he created the Florida East Coast Railway and established its headquarters in St. Augustine. Parking is a premium so park your car in one of the convenient parking lots and take the local trolley. Here are some of the places you will want to visit; St. George Street is lined with historical homes from different periods of St. Augustines history. Historic churches abound, such as Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine built in the late 1700s, or Trinity Church, the oldest Protestant church in Florida, or Grace United Methodist Church built by Flagler in 1886-87 or Memorial Presbyterian Church, also built by Flagler in 1889. The Castillo de San Marcos National Monument is located in the downtown area. Construction started in 1672, costing Spain the equivalent of $30 million to build. Plan to spend at least two hours, but even then you will want to return. The park is open daily except Dec. 25. By now youve seen several signs inviting you to the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park. The park contains a spring of fresh water and is considered the likely landing spot of Ponce de Len. Groups are welcome. Take a sip from the Spring of Eternal Hope. Who knows? Old City. This multi block area is made of narrow pedestrian only streets lined with places to shop and eat. Stroll into history at a slow pace and peel back the centuries. Ponce de Leon Hotel was built in the late 1880s by Flagler and is now part of Flagler College. Designed in the Spanish Renaissance style it is constructed of poured concrete, and had electricity supplied by D.C. generators. Lightner Museum was built as The Hotel Alcazar by Flagler. Step back into the Gilded Age with collections of costumes, Victorian art glass and furnishings of a bygone era. At Ripleys Believe It or Not Museum youll see hundreds of exhibits ranging from the strange to the unusual. You can believe it, or not. There are plenty of places to stay, either in the downtown area, with a selection of small motels and or grand hotels like the Casa Monica, or a short drive to the motels located near the interstate. There also are campgrounds in the area. St. Augustine is more than shops, teahouses, museums, churches and forts. Be sure to head to the beach, a short drive away.Scene from the Road is contributed by Enrico (Rick) Saltarelli, the owner of Salty Breeze Cruise Planners.

The director contrasts the crimes of the destitute and deprived against the ruthlessness of the ascendant class. The privileged residents of Elysium obviously dont care for ships full of immigrants crash-landing in their beautifully landscaped gardens and the space habitats Secretary of Defense Delacourt, played by Jodie Foster, takes homeland security quite seriously. Casting Damon and Foster in leading roles could have been a misstep. A-listers generally impede suspension of disbelief in these kinds of films, particularly when someone less recognizable might give just as compelling a performance. For instance, when Damon is engaged in a brutal fight scene, it immediately calls to mind his role as Jason Bourne. Still, Damon aided by a bunch of temporary tattoos manages to make Max credible and authentic. Sad to say, but the degree to which a viewer finds Damons Max sympathetic may depend largely upon that viewers own socioeconomic status. Damon sells it effectively enough its up to each individual audience member to buy it, or not. Foster is less effective in her fascist persona. The actress employs a peculiar British/European accent, possibly to cast her as an Aryan princess type, which proves to be a distraction. One thing she does get right is that unsettling air of self-righteousness: Delacourt, even when she is spouting the most malevolent and immoral viewpoints, always looks as though she believes what she is saying is ethically sound. Meanwhile, Delacourts go-to henchman, a psychotic mercenary named Kruger, is much easier to read: This is one bad dude. He is the big stick totalitarians use to beat the masses into submission. Kruger is portrayed by Sharlto Copley. Copley, who played the mild-mannered dupe Wikus van de Merwe in District 9, does an excellent job bringing this character to its full potential. Copleys performance as Kruger is nearly as chilling as Heath Ledgers Joker. Other notable cast members include Alice Braga as Frey Santiago, Wagner Moura as Spider, William Fichtner as John Carlyle and Jose Pablo Cantillo as Sandro. Emma Tremblay, who plays Freys young daughter Matilda Santiago, gets few lines but scoresFHM announces current exhibits ST. PETERSBURG The Florida Holocaust Museum is currently hosting three exhibitions. The following exhibitions are currently on display: there is no why here, through Sept. 8 Courage and Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers, through Sept. 29 Pursuing Justice: Nurembergs Legacy, through Dec. 8there is no why hereThe exhibit, there is no why here, features artwork from the permanent collection of the Florida Holocaust Museum. Documentary photos and artifacts often speak for themselves and do not require discourse with their viewer. Likewise, in a digital age where photographs of the Holocaust are readily available, people can become desensitized to photographs of the Holocaust. Art, on the other hand, requires a dialogue with its viewer, forming a bridge between knowing and understanding the history of the Holocaust. Because of this, the Florida Holocaust Museum has had a long-term commitment to collecting and exhibiting art about the Holocaust and other genocides and human rights abuses. Artworks now on view are just a small sampling of the museums holdings. Viewers can expect to see works by artists such as Samuel Bak, Kathe Kollwitz, Emanuel Romano, Maureen Drdak and more. Works included in the show represent a number of different mediums including mixed media, sculpture, installation, painting and prints.Courage and CompassionCourage and Compassion: The Legacy of the Bielski Brothers is a Florida Holocaust Museum original exhibition and is presented nationally by Bank of America. This multi-media exhibition showcases the heroic efforts of three brothers who helped save more than 1,000 Jews during World War II, which was featured in the 2009 major motion picture, Defiance. In 1941, three brothers, Tuvia, Zus and Asael Bielski made the decision to take refuge in forests near Novogrudok, now Belarus, to avoid falling victim to the Nazis as they began their takeover of Poland. In the forest, they formed a community of men, women and children that numbered more than 1,200 by the end of the war. The brothers led their group in acts of sabotage and defense against the Nazis. It is through the brothers leadership that the group survived starvation, harsh winters, and the threat of Nazis and their collaborators. My father believed that saving an old Jewish woman was more important than killing Germans, said Robert Bielsky, son of Tuvia Bielski. My father and uncles risked their lives to mount the largest armed rescue of Jews by Jews in World War II. Their courage and leadership in the face of so much horror and death is a story that finally needs to be told.Pursuing JusticePursuing Justice: Nurembergs Legacy includes photographs and documents from the collection of the Florida Holocaust Museum as well as on loan from Stetson University College of Law. Those objects on loan from Stetson University include the papers and books of Judge Harold L. Sebring, a judge at the Nuremberg Tribunal and former Florida State Supreme Court Judge and former Dean of Stetson University College of Law. The exhibition focuses on the two sets of trials that have become known as the Nuremberg Trials: The International Military Tribunal for the major Nazi war criminals and the 12 subsequent trials conducted under Control Council Number 10 at the U.S. Nuremberg Military Tribunal for those not tried at the IMT. The IMT set the pattern for the subsequent trials as well as hundreds of trials of war criminals tried in the decades since 1945.About FHMThe Florida Holocaust Museum is at 55 Fifth St. S., St. Petersburg. FHM honors the memory of millions of innocent men, women and children who suffered or died in the Holocaust. The museum is dedicated to teaching members of all races and cultures to recognize the inherent worth and dignity of human life in order to prevent future genocides. Admission is $16 for adults. Discounted admission is offered to seniors, students, adult and student groups. Admission is free to active duty military, FHM members and children 6 and younger.

PETERSBURG/CLEARWATERThe Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg is the third largest of its kind in the United States containing photographs, memorabilia, books, films, videotapes and other material from and about the era.

Look for links to the online calendars in the left column. one of the films most memorable moments. Blomkamp is manipulating his audience a bit with this story twist involving the girl, but it doesnt cheapen the argument. There are lapses of logic in the plot. There are omissions that could have been avoided with careful revision. Blomkamp may have sacrificed better character development in some instances to make time for more of the prerequisite action sequences Hollywood deems necessary to pack theaters. The ratio of brain to brawn may not be ideal but Elysium is easily the most intelligent, socially relevant entry into this summers blockbuster pageant. Elysium isnt nearly as perfect as District 9, but it is far better than anticipated. It boasts a fresh story in a summer filled with sequels and retreads and it manages to blend exhilarating action sequences with evocative themes and a solid story. Out of necessity, the film leaves plenty of unanswered questions. Blomkamp cant possibly resolve all of the problems facing this future dystopia thats not his intent. Elysium is an entertaining sci-fi thriller that features provocative concepts about social stratification and future challenges.

Simmons and Matthew Modine Director: Joshua Michael Stern Rated: PG-13 It only takes one person to start a revolution. Jobs is the extraordinary story of Steve Jobs, the original innovator and ground-breaking entrepreneur who let nothing stand in the way of greatness. The film tells the epic and turbulent story of Jobs as he blazed a trail that changed technology and the world forever.Lee Daniels The ButlerGenre: Biography and drama Cast: Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Mariah Carey, John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Melissa Leo, James Marsden, David Oyelowo, Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Redgrave, Alan Rickman, Liev Schreiber and Robin Williams Director: Lee Daniels Rated: PG-13 Lee Daniels The Butler is set against the tumultuous political backdrop of 20th century America. Academy Award nominated director Lee Daniels epic drama tells the story of fictional White House butler Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), who serves during seven presidential administrations between 1957 and 1986. The film is inspired by Wil Haygoods 2008 Washington Post article A Butler Well Served by This Election which chronicled the real life of former White House butler Eugene Allen. The film begins in 1926 and follows a young Cecil as he escapes the tyranny of the fiercely segregated South in search of a better life. Along his arduous journey to manhood Cecil learns invaluable skills that ultimately lead to an opportunity of a lifetime: a job as a butler at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. There, Cecil becomes a firsthand witness to history and the inner workings of the Oval Office as the civil rights movement unfolds. At home, his loving wife Gloria (Oprah Winfrey) raises their two sons, and the family benefits from a comfortable middle-class existence enabled by Cecils White House position. But Cecils commitment to his First Family fosters tensions at home, alienating Gloria and creating conflict with his antiestablishment son (David Oyelowo). Through the eyes and emotions of the Gaines family, Daniels film follows the changing tides of American politics and race relations; from the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to the Freedom Riders and Black Panther movements, to the war in Vietnam and the Watergate scandal, Cecil experiences the effects of these events as both an insider and a family man. Kick Ass 2Genre: Action and comedy Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chlo Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Jim Carrey Director: Jeff Wadlow Rated: R Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) do-ityourself vigilante bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) reborn as a super-villain only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young masked hero Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do with their shared calling, Dave decides to start the worlds first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, shes forced to retire leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a bornagain ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, a new self-proclaimed super-villain assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But theres only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.ParanoiaGenre: Thriller Cast: Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, Amber Heard, Harrison Ford, Lucas Till, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Richard Dreyfuss Director: Robert Luketic Rated: PG-13 The high stakes thriller Paranoia goes deep behind the scenes of global success to a deadly world of greed and deception. The two most powerful tech billionaires in the world (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) are bitter rivals with a complicated past who will stop at nothing to destroy each other. A young superstar, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth), seduced by unlimited wealth and power, falls between them and becomes trapped in their twisting, turning, life-and-death game of corporate espionage. By the time Adam realizes his life is in danger, he is in far too deep and knows far too much for them to let him walk away.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The Patience StoneGenre: Drama Cast: Golshifteh Farahani, Hamidrez Javdan, Hassina Burgan and Massi Mrowat Director: Atiq Rahimi Rated: R In a country torn apart by war, Afghanistan or elsewhere, a young woman in her 30s watches over her older husband in a decrepit room. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. He has been abandoned by his fellow combatants and even by his own brothers. One day, the womans vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her childhood, her suffering, her frustrations, her loneliness, her dreams, desires, and secrets. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, she says things she could never have spoken before, even though they have been married for 10 years. Her husband has unconsciously become syngu sabour (the patience stone) a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. The womans confessions are extraordinary and without restraint: about sex and love, her anger against a man who never understood her, who mistreated her, who never showed her any respect or kindness. Through the words she delivers so audaciously to her husband, the woman seeks to free herself from suffering. But after weeks of looking after him, she begins to act, discovering herself in the relationship she starts with a young soldier. The legend of the patience stone also says that when it has absorbed all that it can handle, it explodes, causing the world to end. But, for one brave Afghan woman, it is a risk shes willing to take to unburden herself and be free. The Patience Stone is adapted from the bestselling novel by Atiq Rahimi, director and co-writer, with Jean-Claude Carrire, of the film adaptation.Kutcher stars in Jobs biopic; Whitaker portrays The ButlerOpening this weekend The novel The Patience Stone has been translated in 33 languages and was winner of the 2008 Goncourt Prize, the most prestigious book award in France.Aint Them Bodies SaintsGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Keith Carradine, Nate Parker, Rami Malek, Kennadie Smith, Jacklynn Smith, Robert Longstreet, Charles Baker, Augustine Frizzell, Kentucker Audley and David Zellner Director: David Lowery Not rated Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), an impassioned young outlaw couple on an extended crime spree, are finally apprehended by lawmen after a shootout in the Texas hills. Although Ruth wounds a local officer, Bob takes the blame. But four years later, Bob escapes from prison and sets out to find Ruth and their daughter, born during his incarceration. Set against the backdrop of 1970s Texas Hill Country, director David Lowery paints a poetic picture, evoking the mythology of westerns and saturating the dramatic space with an aching sense of loss. Featuring powerful performances by Affleck, Mara as well as Ben Foster and Keith Carradine, Aint Them Bodies Saints is a story of love, motherhood and searching for peace while faced with an unrelenting past.AustenlandGenre: Comedy Cast: Keri Russell, J.J. Feild, Bret McKenzie, James Callis, Jennifer Coolidge, Jane Seymour and Rupert Vansittart Director: Jershua Hess Rated: PG-13 Austenland is a romantic comedy about 30something, single Jane Hayes (Keri Russell), a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her obsession with all things Jane Austen. But when she decides to spend her life savings on a trip to an English resort catering to Austencrazed women, Janes fantasies of meeting the perfect Regencyera gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Based on the novel by Shannon Hale (who also co-wrote the script), the film was written and directed by Jerusha Hess and produced by Stephenie Meyers Fickle Fish Films.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

The production will run Friday through Sunday, Nov. 810, at the Safety Harbor Public Library. The show will then run the following two weekends, Nov. 15-17 and Nov. 22-24, at Venue Theatre in Pinellas Park. The theater is hoping to use the same cast for the whole run of the play. The cast and crew will be receiving monetary compensation for the two-week run at Venue, based on the box office receipts for the six Venue performances. Double casting of certain roles is possible. This unique production schedule requires a cast that should be open-minded, creative, flexible and resourceful. The play is set in the Cloisters, a private New England asylum, in the early 1950s. The plot involves Ethel Savages greedy children trying to commit her to the Cloisters in order to control her vast fortune. The available roles and their suggested ages are as follows: Ethel Savage, 60-plus Fairy May, 20-40 Lily Belle, 30-plus Miss Willie, 20s Florence, 40s Mrs. Paddy, 50-plus Hannibal, 40-plus Jeffrey, 20s Titus, 50-plus Samuel, 50-plus Dr. Emmett, 40s Rehearsals will be at Venue Theatre most Sundays, 7 to 9:30 p.m.; and at Safety Harbor Library, most Mondays, 6 to 9 p.m. Small group scene work will be at Safety Harbor Library on Wednesdays, 6 to 8:30 p.m. A specific schedule will be available at auditions. Auditions will include a cold reading from the script. For information, email Richard Rosen at upstage111@yahoo.com. Venue Ensemble Theatre also will host auditions for the musical The Last Room, by Donna Tripp, on Sunday, Sept. 15, 7 p.m., at Venue Theatre. The play tells the story of the Nativity from the viewpoint of the innkeeper, and how it affected his life. Director Vic Carr is seeking 12 men, ages 30 to 60; and three women, ages 30 to 50+. All candidates should be good singers, with minimal choreography. Those auditioning should prepare 16 bars of a ballad from a musical and bring sheet music in their key, or a CD accompaniment in their key, or sing a capella. The production will run Dec. 6-22, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 3 p.m. All roles will receive a stipend based on ticket sales.

MULTI PERSON BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS WELCOMED.62713 Friday All-You-Can-Eat Grouper Fish Fry $14.95 Geckofest brings circus to the streets of Gulfport Aug. 31 GULFPORT The 13th annual Geckofest will bring entertainment to the streets during a daylong spectacle on Saturday, Aug. 31, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., along Beach Boulevard in Gulfport. Amid the thousands of festival-goers, hundreds of vendors and dozens of live musicians on two stages, attendees will come face to face with live mermaids, magicians, jugglers, acrobats, fire dancers and more, creating an up close and personal circus atmosphere throughout the village. Each year, Gulfport celebrates the end of summer with its largest festival of the year, dedicated to the towns unofficial mascot and favorite reptile. The festival has grown to become one of Tampa Bays most anticipated events of the year. Entertainment in the streets is one of the hallmarks of Geckofest, with many both strolling and stationary performers interacting with visitors. This years festival will bring more action, fun and thrills to the streets than ever before. Live mermaids will be visiting in a rare display. The curator of the exhibit will give details on the history of mermaids, their habits and habitats, before drawing the curtain to reveal one of the visiting mermaids. These sea women of lore can be viewed up close behind the glass of a giant water tank. Naturally curious, a mermaid may surface from the water to interact with onlookers. Getting close to her may mean getting splashed. The mermaid exhibit will be located in the heart of the festival. The Mcandless Aerial Troupe will be on hand to perform acts of anti-gravity grace, including aerial acrobatics, long distance drops, hanging Spanish web rope maneuvers and more. The Acromaniacs will show off an array of thrilling acrobatics including extreme flipping and body balancing stunts combined with comedy. Dallas, a well-known Tampa Bay area performer, will combine comedy and juggling, as well as amazing feats of strength and balance. Donning his trademark color orange, stunt comedian Wacky Chad will combine clowning with such stunts as carrying passengers on a miniature bicycle to balancing shopping carts on his face. His extreme pogo stick stunts will amaze festival goers and his comedy antics will keep visitors in stitches. Seasoned magician, mentalist and entertainer Anton James will display a variety of illusions, including assorted magic tricks large and small, mind reading and mind games, and other entertainment in a high-energy style. Capping off the festivities, the Fireshow by Mayhem will showcase a troupe of performers who will dance with, play with, manipulate, swallow and have full body contact with fire. The finale will include a rocket staff spun by a performer like a baton with live fireworks attached to each end. Audience members will gather in a circle surrounding the performance area and are able to view the pyrotechnics from close up. The fire show returns to Geckofest by popular demand and has thrilled audiences on every occasion. Attendees also will find face painters, balloon artists, stilt walkers, drummers, a living statue and more street entertainers throughout the day. Other costumed performers, including pirates, gypsies, faeries, and of course geckos will be strolling through the village during Geckofest, creating a quirky, vibrant and colorful scene enjoyable for visitors of all ages. Geckofest visitors are encouraged to come in costume. Many of the Geckofest performers also will march alongside costumed visitors in the annual walking parade, which will be led by Gulfports Mayor Emeritus, and include the o-FISH-al Gecko Goddess, as well as the new Gecko Queen and her Court. A costume contest with prizes will be held HMS Pinafore auditions setTARPON SPRINGS Auditions for HMS Pinafore will be Monday, Aug. 26, 7 p.m., at the Heritage Museum, 100 Beekman Lane.
