Pinellas protects gender rightsCounty commission approves contended amendment with 6-1 vote By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Despite a wall of opposition, the Pinellas County Commission added protection from discrimination for gender identity Aug. 20 via an amendment to its Human Rights code. Commissioners listened to those for and against the amendment for nearly three hours before discussing the matter amongst themselves. In the end, the vote was 6-1 to approve. Commissioner Norm Roche voted no. Chapter 70 of Pinellas Countys codes relating to human relations gives protection against discrimination for race, color, religion, national origin, marital status, familial status, pregnancy, gender, sexual orientation, sexual harassment, age, disability and now gender identity as well. The countys Office of Human Rights is responsible to protect all citizens from discrimination in the areas of fair housing, employment, public accommodations and government programs and assistance. The amendment prohibiting discrimination due to gender identity and gender expression applies in three of those areas: fair housing, employment and public accommodations. Paul Valenti, director of the Human Rights Office, said 17 states have already passed laws prohibiting discrimination based on a persons gender identify. Florida is not one of those states; however, several of its counties and municipalities have such protections, including Gulfport and Dunedin in Pinellas County. Legislation is pending in the U.S. Senate. Roche made it clear that he was not voting against the amendment because he did not believe discrimination should be prohibited. He is unhappy with changes to the ordinance that redefine gender. He prefers providing the protections using different words. Supporters of the amendment were given first chance at the podium to tell commissioners why they should By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO By all rights and sense of reason, Jimmy Weyant should never had bought the dozens of boxes of hardback books currently stacked in the back of his new store space in Largo. This he admits freely. Weyant is retired. He suffers from multiple sclerosis and walks with a cane. He had no space for the books in the mobile home where he lives. The Vietnam veteran lost his last used book business in a divorce and was content to let it end there. But the collection a fellow seller at the Mustang Flea Market offered was enticing: about 5,500 books, many of them hardback, and all of them in reported good condition. Still, Weyant said he checked out the collection out of a courtesy. Frankly, I didnt go in thinking it would be anything, he said. On the way to her house, I mused Id be seeing broken sets of encyclopedias, Readers Digest condensed, etc. He was wrong. The woman, who Weyant would not name, once was a very active collector who has very, very good taste, he said. The books were mostly nonfiction titles on interesting topics and in good shape. He checked out the books on three different occasions, just to make sure he wasnt about to make a mistake Every time, I was more impressed, he said. He decided he couldnt resist. It took a couple of months to negotiate the deal when he finally made up his mind. He began renting out a business space in mid-July and moved all the boxes of books to a back room. Its like Christmas, every time I open a new box, he said. He opened too many boxes, faster than he can process and sort them, he said. Its a weakness. Weeks into the project, the 65-year-old bearded book guru sat on a rolling chair, his legs crossed in a yoga pose, surrounded by stacks upon stacks of books. Many of the books have slips of paper stuck between their pages. Those are ones hes ready to list online, just as soon as he figures out some technical issues with the website hes working with, he said. Theyll go on his shelves too, and sell in-person for half the listed price. The vast majority of the books are still in their boxes.

TORRESJimmy Weyant sits with his dog, Princess, behind a stack of books ready to be posted for sale online in his store, The Scribes Perch in Largo. The once-retired bookseller is now going through a collection of about 5,500 books, mostly hardbacks. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Robert DiMarco, Curtis McClendon and their team of fellow firefighters, the Ballbarians, werent the best kickball players in the tournament at Whitesell Softball Complex Aug. 24. We got crushed the first game, DiMarco said in an exaggerated lament. They didnt even have any sympathy for the two guys with cancer. It was like 10 to nothing. Their second and final game, this time in the losers bracket, also ended in a shutout. But McClendon, 42, and DiMarco, 36, who serve the city of Largo on the same shift together, will still walk away with almost $10,000 split between them. Both have battled cancer this year, and the Largo firefighter union, Local 2427, organized the tournament to help them pay for medical bills. Firefighter Macho Liberti, secretary and treasurer for the union, said he and other organizers were still collecting funds and paying out bills associated with the fundraiser. But he knew the tournament brought in about $9,330, and the group already had about $500 in donated funds. I think when its all said and done, were going to be close to $10,000, he said. The successful fundraiser was one that the union plans on repeating next year, he said. Unfortunately, McClendons and DiMarcos separate cancer diagnoses were less than coincidental. We as firefighters have an increased risk over normal workers, Liberti said. Well keep this as an annual event to benefit other possible firefighters that may come down with cancer, not just in Largo. In fact, Liberti said the union was discussing starting a nonprofit organization and an ongoing benevolent fund to that end. Liberti is passionate about addressing the issue. He teaches a class on the risk of cancer based off one put together by the Firefighter Cancer Support Network, a national organization. I hope by educating more and more firefighters about the increased risk we have of developing cancer, we will turn the tide on some of these statistics, Liberti explained. According to a report published this month by the Firefighter Cancer Support Network, cancer is See KICKBALL, page 3A See BUDGET, page 5A See GENDER, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County employees will likely see a small boost in their paycheck during fiscal year 2014, which begins Oct. 1. County Administrator Bob LaSala told commissioners during a meeting Aug. 20, he was budgeting for a 3 percent raise for county employees, who are part of the Unified Personnel system a small boost from 2.8 percent he recommended in his initial budget released July 9. LaSala said he was suggesting the increase in consideration of the work done by employees and trends in the workplace that merit the bigger pay raise. He said the money would come from departmental budgets and would not require a change to the proposed millage. The proposed general fund millage rate for FY 2014 is 5.2755, an increase from the current years rate of 5.0105. If approved county residents will pay just over $5.27 for every $1,000 of their properties assessed value. The portion of the tax bill for the general fund on a home with an assessed value of $99,967 would increase $26.49 if the rate is approved. Tentative millage rates are shown on Truth in Millage Notices (TRIM) mailed from the Property Appraisers Office Aug. 19. The rates can be lowered during the public hearings and final See BOOKSELLER, page 4A5,500 old booksUnable to resist the discovery, retired bookseller takes one last business venture: The Scribes Perch in LargoPhotos by JULIANA A.

A HEALTHY CONCEPT FOR BREAKFAST & LUNCH082913Lunch Specials$695Monday-Friday the most dangerous and unrecognized threat to the health of firefighters. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has been working on a multi-year study to determine the risks of cancer, using data from more than 30,000 firefighters from San Francisco, Philadelphia and Chicago. The results of the study are expected to be completed this year. Smaller scale studies already have reported that firefighters are 2.2 times more likely to develop testicular cancer and 1.5 times more likely to develop NonHodgkin lymphoma, according to the support networks report Taking Action Against Cancer in the Fire Service. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma was DiMarcos diagnosis on Feb. 6. The paramedic said he had been experiencing chest pains at night and had higher blood pressure for months. He knew, from hooking himself up to a heart monitor at the station, that he didnt have a heart problem. Initially, his doctor put him on antibiotics, saying his condition was the result of bronchitis. Nothing went away; it just kept getting worse and worse, DiMarco said. When a lump formed in his neck, DiMarco had a biopsy that proved he had cancer. Two days later, he began the first of six rounds of chemotherapy. Through the process, he gained 40 pounds, mostly due to the high dose of steroids he was on. Initially, his doctors told him radiation would follow. But his CAT scan came back so clean that it was canceled. So I got very lucky, he said. There was (only) a very short time frame that I looked sick. Only a month before DiMarcos diagnosis, McClendon discovered that he had renal cell carcinoma, a common kidney cancer. What turned out to be a tumor showed up in a yearly examination all Largo firefighters undergo during the previous summer. McClendon initially thought nothing of it, but followed up with his doctor. By January, a new test showed that the mass had quadrupled in size, and he had surgery to remove the cancerous tumor. Doctors are still keeping an eye on business on hold. But both have had each others support. The two have worked in shift C at Station 41 for more than three years. Weve become very, very close over the past year, sharing a lot of the same emotions and mental lapses and stresses, McClendon said. Its really been good to have him as a companion to talk to. Liberti said that the union was committed to helping firefighters, specifically in their cancer battles, because the state doesnt have presumptive disability laws for firefighters diagnosed with cancer. Currently, Florida statutes outline that tuberculosis, heart disease, or hypertension resulting in disability for law enforcement or firefighters is presumed to be a result of their line of duty. Select states extend that presumption to specific types of cancer, but Florida has no such protection. Chemicals released during fires, especially when synthetic materials are burning, can be absorbed or inhaled by firefighters and then cause cancer, Liberti said. The problem is gradual exposures over the life of the career that leads to us being more likely to develop cancer, he explained. Typically, we try to police ourselves, he said. Any time there is visible smoke, we have to have respirators on Now we dont take our masks off until we use our air monitors to see that at least the CO levels are down. Given the two most recent instances, Liberti said he would work harder to bring the cancer awareness classes to his fellow firefighters. The kickball tournament included not only from Largo firefighters, but representatives from several other Tampa Bay fire and police agencies. DiMarco said he couldnt believe how many players, at $250 per team, showed up to support him. Its overwhelming at times all the love and the support that they get. Its nice, said his wife, Stephanie. The community can continue to donate to a joint fund for McClendon and DiMarco at any BB&T Bank. For more about the Largo Professional Firefighters, visit www.iaff2427.org.Photo by JULIANA A.

4A County Leader, August 29, 2013 GENDER, from page 1Aapprove it. Susan McGrath, president of the Stonewall Democrats of Pinellas County, and other members of that organization, pointed to a missed opportunity in 2008 when the commission voted against adding protection for gender identity to the human rights code. We support the Ts (transgendered) in our community and applaud your efforts today, she said. She said approving the amendment would create greater equality and inclusiveness. Katee Tully, Equality Florida board member and member of the St. Petersburg Chamber, said both organizations supported the amendment, which she called an appropriate right for everyone. Andrew Santino, a transgendered man, and his wife Sasha, who are business owners in St. Petersburg, also asked for the commissions support to stop discrimination because people dont fit. Not all can accept people who look different, he said. He said people who identify with a gender other than the one they were born become homeless and unemployed simply because of who they are. His wife told commissioners that before she met her husband she didnt even know what transgendered was. She talked about rights for human beings. Its disturbing that people are discriminated against for what they are and that they dont fit, she said. Several women talked about being bullied and being pushed out of restrooms because they dont like to wear dresses and high heels. The underlying theme was a desire to be protected from discrimination. Those opposing the amendment outnumbered supporters about two to one, and they were by far more vocal. One woman traveled from Tampa to speak against the change. They objected to exemptions in the law for religious organizations and the school district. They objected because the amendment would give protections not available under state or federal law. They objected to the codes definition of gender, saying it was different from the one found in the dictionary or medical books. Some cited Biblical scripture. Local pastors tried to persuade commissioners to vote no. People said it was wrong to change the gender a person is born with, as that was strictly an act of God. They said a persons gender should be decided by fact not feelings. A few said gender identity was a mental disorder. Others warned that the amendment would open the door to lawsuits with more than one person saying it would open Pandoras Box. They said businesses would leave the county due to fear of lawsuits. Some said creating protection for a small sub-class of people created more victims. Regina Brown, speaking for herself and four others, talked about reverse discrimination and the hate she has been shown due to her opposition. Brown said she has been called names because she opposes same-sex marriage. She pointed out that just because she opposes the amendment doesnt mean she approves of discrimination. Brown is against more government regulation. She said government should not step in to protect people who are unhappy with their assigned sex. I used to be so skinny and people made fun of me, she said. Are you going to put in your ordinance that people cant call me skinny and point at me and make me cry? However, the most pressing concern of most of the objectors was about the restroom. I dont want a man who because of his gender identity has become a female to use the same restroom that I do, said Dorothy Bonds of Palm Harbor. Several objectors talked about voyeurism and sexual abuse. Nancy Davis of Seminole said she didnt want to go to the shower in the gym and find it occupied by men and women. Im very concerned, she said. I have certain values. She said she had a right to her privacy. Others talked about the danger to young children who might encounter a pedophile posing as a transgendered person. They were afraid providing protections for people expressing themselves as a different gender would be confusing to children and cause problems. Several people said the amendment would not be needed at all if people would just be kind to one another. They pointed out that the commission could not require people to be kind to each other. You cant legislate against discrimination, said Rex Brown of Largo. I was taught to love everyone and I think you should. Commissioner Charlie Justice made the motion for approval as soon as the public was done speaking. He said while he understood and empathized with the speakers, it was possible to legislate against discrimination, although it was not possible to legislate what is in peoples hearts and minds. But we can set a policy to not discriminate against a group of people whether it is 2 percent, 20 percent or 40 percent. He referred to statements by the public to the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He said many had talked about faith, which is what he uses as his moral compass. He said his faith was the rock I am standing upon to vote in favor of this tonight. In an interview after the meeting, Valenti clarified which public restrooms would be covered under the definition of public accommodation, including public lodging, motels and hotels; restaurants, eateries, places where food is sold and ate on premises; businesses where drinks alcoholic and nonalcoholic -are sold and consumed on premises. In addition, the law applies to establishments that sell goods and services; clinics and hospitals; bathhouses and swimming pools; entertainment and sports venues; all public places on land or water essentially most places of public business. A complete list is provided in the code. The amendment does not apply to private clubs. Valenti said the amendment in no way changes the law to allow improper behavior in public restrooms, including touching or display of genitalia, which was a fear of a few of the female speakers at the Aug. 20 meeting. Commissioner Janet Long received several emails asking her how as a parent she could support the amendment. I have children and grandchildren, Long said. It is not good public policy to make decisions based on fear. She said she too uses her faith as a moral compass to make decisions. Im very proud to support this ordinance tonight, Long said. Ive labored over this beyond, Roche said. Ive talked to people all over this county. In the end, he voted against the amendment due to the way the language was changed in the ordinance. I believe people who are transgendered should not be discriminated against and those who do that should be punished swiftly and publicly, he said. I dont have the authority to give or take away a right. It is not our role to redefine a word. He preferred leaving the ordinance as it was and adding the term transgender with a definition. He said just as same-sex marriage, gender identity rights was a state and federal issue that should be not be decided on by local jurisdictions. Commission Chair Ken Welch said it was within the commissions responsibility to protect the minority and to protect all people, including the gay and lesbian people in the community. Other places have this and there have been nightmare scenarios, he said. Change is never easy, said Commissioner John Morroni. He talked about the changes made in the county over the past 100 years. Blacks were kept out of the bathrooms. We had black and white restrooms, he said. Not long ago, women werent allowed to vote, but now they can. The seven of us think a lot about how we vote. It affects us. We want to listen to you, then make our decisions. But we may not always agree. Commissioner Karen Seel said it would be nice if we could all live by the Golden Rule, treat others as we wish to be treated. People tonight said, be nice and kind to each other, we cant legislate that, she said. This is trying to cover all human beings in the county. Many of our lives are dictated by the circumstances of our birth. She said people most likely would continue to use the restroom of their choice, as they do today. She said the amendment could help promote more use of unisex restrooms. Pass on the Golden Rule. Live it every day, Seel said.Commissioners deny conditional use permit for waste facility By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER In November 2012, Pinellas County Commissioners rescinded a conditional use permit for an outdoor vegetative solid waste management facility at 16604 U.S. 19 N. in unincorporated Clearwater. On Aug. 20, the commission unanimously voted to deny a new application for the same conditional use on the property. The property is owned by Berati #2 LLC, headquartered in Belleair Beach, co-owned by Fatbardh and Soloi Shehu. The company first requested a permit for its business in 2010 and approval was granted with nine conditions, plus a 10th that said if any of the nine conditions were not met, the County Commission could rescind the permit. Berati #2 also runs a landscape business from the location. The conditional use permit only deals with the transferring and storage of vegetative debris. At a meeting on Nov. 27, 2010, staff told commissioners that six of the nine conditions were unmet despite the business being in operation for two years since the permit was issued. The commission voted unanimously to rescind the permit. County staff recommended approval of the new permit Aug. 20 with 15 conditions set by the Local Planning Agency. John Cueva, Planning Department zoning manager, said the new concept plan differed from the previous one. The conditions, as recommended by the LPA, address a number of past and present concerns, including those from neighboring properties. The final condition allows the commission to rescind the permit anytime Berati #2 fails to meet any of the other 14 conditions. Todd Myers, Code Enforcement supervisor, told commissioners that progress had been made to clean up the property since 2010, with much happening in the last six weeks. He said a number of issues were on the road to being corrected. In 2010, Myers showed photos of fuel tanks in an inappropriate location. He brought up fuel tanks when he talked about the property again in 2013. He said the plan called for one fuel tank, but six are located on the property along with an unpermitted light pole. In addition, when code enforcement visited the property in August, a hissing sound led officers to find employees in the process of spray-painting a semi-tractor truck in unsafe conditions. Largo Fire Rescue was called to address those concerns. The property is located in the Largo Fire District. Timothy Wedin, Largo fire marshal, said he was met with some resistance when he visited the property. He said he waited for about 10 minutes while employees had a private meeting and then asked him to wait until the owner could arrive. He said he tried to talk to the owner, who had been told previously that no spray painting was allowed unless a paint booth was installed and other requirements were met. I told him why we were there, Wedin said. He got agitated, cussing me and arm waving. He refused access. When I tried to exit, he followed me, continuing the verbal abuse and beat on my car. Wedin said he was very concerned about the spray painting, the location of what appeared to be single-wall fuel tanks and the unpermitted electrical use on the site. It looks like a lot of violations, he said. County Attorney Jim Bennett suggested that Commissioners consider approving the conditional use subject to the property owner first coming into compliance with existing conditions and regulations. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERLargo Fire Marshal Timothy Wedin tells Pinellas County Commissioners Aug. 20 about an inspection visit that went awry.Wedin said he wanted to inspect the property without having to pursue a warrant to do so in the company of Sheriffs deputies. Ive never had to go this far, he said. Ive never been denied. Commissioner Karen Seel made her opinion known even before the applicants representative, Todd Pressman, had a chance to speak. I cant even consider this, she said, citing the outstanding code violations and potential fire dangers. Pressman told the commission that a lot of progress had been made and much had been done since code enforcements visit. He blamed the problem on a language barrier. People on site dont speak good English, he said. He had requested that he be notified in advance of inspections so he could be present to translate, which was not done before Largo Fire Rescue visited the property. He said an email had been sent to Largo Fire Rescue to apologize for the owners behavior. Pressman said there would be no conditional use on the property until all the code violations were satisfied and a new site plan approved. Weve made every effort to rise above and work with the neighbors, he said, admitting that the owner had created a lot of the friction. Code enforcement has been hard on him, which caused frustration, he said. One neighbor from an adjacent mobile home park spoke in support of the permit and three wrote letters in support to the LPA. Three neighbors wrote letters to the LPA in opposition and three spoke at the meeting against the permit. They referred to problems with rats and snakes, noise, problems with the employees and others. Its not a transfer station, said Sally Robinson from Embassy Mobile Home Park. Its a dump, pure and simple. Cueva said the reason staff recommended approval was that the permit meets the general standard of our code. County Administrator Bob LaSala recommended continuing the matter until Largo Fire Rescue could make a report on any safety issues. I think the board is ready to vote, said Commission Chair Ken Welch. Pressman said if the commission approved the permit, a meeting would be set up with Largo and he would make sure what is needed is done. We have to come into compliance, he said. The system worked. We got the message and cleaned it up. A motion to deny was made and seconded. The decision was unanimous. BriefsPrestigious honor awarded to Pinellas housing officialThe Florida Community Development Association presented the Friend of Community Development award to Anthony Jones, executive director of the Housing Finance Authority and director of Pinellas County Community Development at its state conference in Clearwater Aug. 16.

Scientists at the county believe that the focus on stopping the mosquitoes before they even grow into flying biting machines is the most effective means of control. To do so, they monitor and larvicide on a daily basis throughout the county, and fog in locations where it is specifically needed. According to entomologist Jason Stuck, the county monitors mosquito populations daily through traps in 40 locations throughout the county. Technicians also monitor standing water for live mosquito larva Monday through Friday. There are 56 caged chickens kept in eight target locations on which routine blood tests are performed, testing for virus antibodies. When a positive result is confirmed, the information is conveyed to the public and efforts are intensified in that area, with fogging to kill the adult mosquitoes. Fogging also may be done when a trap shows an unusually high increase for several days, or if Mosquito Control receives numerous service calls in a specific area. A technician may then request that fogging be done, usually during nighttime hours. The public is a vital part of the fight against mosquitoes and they can help by being vigilant in the prevention of and protection from mosquitoes by following the three Ds: Drain: even small amounts of standing water can breed mosquitoes Dress: light colors, loose fitting, long sleeves and pants Defend: effective repellents include Deet, Picaridin, or Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus. A mosquito control request form, links to videos and general information can be found at www.pinellascounty.org/mosquito. Questions can also be directed to 464-7704. Videos about mosquito control can be viewed at www.youtube.com/pcctv1.reading glasses, were enlivened rather than overwhelmed by the scope of his task. His tastes are very specific. If it aint a book or a bookend, Im not interested, he admitted. His new business, named The Scribes Perch, is an updated version of a successful used bookstore and rare book auction operation he ran in Rhode Island for more than 10 years. Hes been in the business for a long time. But Weyant said he didnt read a book of his own volition until he was drafted into the Army. While he was stationed in Vietnam, his passion for books sparked after he realized that you couldnt go down and get drunk every night. Instead, the company clerk, who was a reader, and got him interested in the books supplied by the Red Cross. It was wonderful when a box of books came because we got first pickings, Weyant said. After he was discharged, he lived in Australia, working as a traveling salesman for three years. He re turned to get an education through the G.I. Bill, enrolling in Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. My granddad passed away and left me a barrel of money, he explained. At that stage, I thought, Well gee, Id rather not do anything but this. So I opened my store. He opened The Scribes Perchs predecessor in 1984, in Newport, R.I. The business started out as a simple used bookstore. But Weyant had a brilliant idea: why not advertise the business and an associated 800 number as a used book search service in major newspapers in other parts of the country? The idea was too quickly a success. My phone wouldnt stop ringing, Weyant said. We couldnt keep up. He later used the skills he had learned as a traveling salesman to become a used book dealer, visiting bookstores within a 1,500-mile circuit and collecting rare books the owners were sick of looking at. He then sold the books on their behalf in an auction. His niche operation began to grow a solid reputation and was very successful, he said. But all that fell apart in the divorce, he said. Weyant has been a casual seller since moving to Florida. Sometimes he helps nonprofit thrift stores sort through their book collection. It takes a long time, but he has the expertise to help them earn money off books, he said. For his own business, he doesnt keep bestsellers or mass-market paperbacks on his shelves, nothing that hasnt been around for a while. If youre still talking about it 50 years later, OK, I want it on my shelf, he said. He can provide or find books on anything people have a passion for: growing a perfect rose or building a boat from scratch, he said. As shopkeeper, his job is to keep interesting titles on the shelves and keep his customers spouses occupied with conversation while the bibliophile gets lost searching for the perfect book. Weyant expects that about 40 percent of the books he has will be listed online and sold in his store. The books have to be valued at least $12 to be worth his time. All others he will sell for cheap in the parking lot in front of his store on the weekends. Any not sold in those yard sales will be donated to charities. By sorting out the chaff in this way, Weyant will slowly go through all the boxes of books. Every week, the sale in front of his store will be a new collection, he said. Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESJimmy Weyants used bookstore in Largo, The Scribes Perch, is new version of a successful business he once owned in Newport, R.I.The books on his shelves will be constantly changing. It will take at least a year to go through his new collection, but Weyant doesnt expect his business to be a long-term venture. Im too old to expand, he said. Im too old to do this. But the business is a passion he hasnt been able to quit. I love selling books. I love talking books. I love people who read books, he said. For now, The Scribes Perch is a hidden niche, quite off the beaten path and without a typical storefront, located in suite 200 of the American Business Center, at 8340 Ulmerton Road in Largo. But Weyant thinks that will change. Once bibliophiles find me, theyre going to be delighted, he said. Email him at kingweyant1@yahoo.com.

The commission has scheduled two public hearings on the millage rates and budgets. The dates are Thursday, Sept. 5, and Tuesday, Sept. 17. The hearings begin at 6 p.m. in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St. in Clearwater. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/budget.Social action fundingCommissioners used $561,550 in funds from the Service Level Stabilization Account to provide money for social action and homeless initiative agencies in FY 2014. Staff was asked to include that money in next years budget. Commissioners have been debating the timing of changes to how money is awarded to nonprofit organizations providing services to needy residents next year. The final decision was to wait until next year to give the organizations time to prepare. Priority funding was given to Neighborly Care Network, which provides meals for homebound seniors, to help the agency deal with federal sequestration and budget cuts. Priority also was given to agencies providing emergency shelter for the homeless and shelter beds for families with children, agencies providing food access services, such as food pantries and food distribution centers, and agencies that use county fund to meet requirements for a matching grant.

Seventy percent (of the money) is not getting to people who need help, said Commissioner Norm Roche. Seventy percent ought to go to help people and the rest to salary and administrative costs. Health and Human Services Director Gwendolyn Warren said she planned to begin working with the agencies in the spring closer to the time they begin work on their budgets. BUDGET, from page 1ASurface water feesCommissioners also approved the non-ad valorem assessment agreement with the county tax collector to add a surface water management utility fee to the tax bills of property owners in unincorporated parts of the county. They talked about a plan to assist with hardship cases to help make sure people dont lose their homes because they couldnt pay the new fee. The utility tax will be part of the property tax bill and must be paid in full within two years or risk the property being sold at auction. Kelli Levy, section manager for Natural Resources section of the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, said no cities within the county offered exemptions or reduced rates for low-income property owners. However, she said, staff did find a policy in Bay County for qualifying senior citizens, low income seniors and disabled veterans and others who qualify for additional ad valorem homestead exemptions. Levy said another county funding source was needed to fund the exemptions. She said any exemptions to the assessment fee must be paid back and that surface water assessment funds cannot be used. She said one funding source could be the Municipal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU) contingency fund. Some people cannot pay another $10 a month, Commission Chair Ken Welch said. I thought a waiver would be there to protect these folks. Commissioner Karen Seel suggested looking at starting a Good Neighbor Fund, which is used by Duke Energy and the city of Clearwater. The programs allow private citizens to donate to the fund to help those in need pay their bills. Levy said Duke Energys program was funded by a federal grant. She did not know how Clearwater operates its program. The commission directed staff to work on establishing a Good Neighbor program.In other business: The commission approved fee increases for FY 2014 LaSala announced that Health and Human Service had received a $600,000 federally funded Navigator Grant to help guide the process of the Affordable Healthcare Act. The commission approved an applicant for the Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund program. LaSala said the application was for 143 jobs with pay exceeding 115 percent of the annual wage requirement. The commission heard an appeal from an attorney representing Bright House about a lawsuit over cut cables during the construction of the Belleair Beach Causeway. The commission approved an amendment to an agreement with the countys constitutional officers allowing them to terminate and withdraw from the Business Technology Services Board.In divided vote, commission votes to spread business around By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER A routine piece of business on the Aug. 20 consent agenda turned into an unusual move by the Pinellas County Commission. Commissioners voted 4-3 to accept the second ranked firm, instead of staffs first-ranked recommendation, to begin negotiations for a contract for design-build services for the Pinellas County health facility. Commission Chair Ken Welch voted no, as did Commissioners Charlie Justice and Norm Roche. Twelve firms submitted proposals for the $12.5 million contract. After a two-part process, five evaluators ranked the firms by score. Peter R. Brown Construction received the most points, 872.20, a slight lead over Creative Contractors with 869.40 points. The third ranked firm, Charles Perry Partners, received 846 points. Commissioner Susan Latvala began discussion on the matter. She was concerned because the topranked firm had recently received a $9 million contract for the parking garage at the Justice Center in Clearwater. These contracts provide jobs in our community, she said. I think we should spread the work around. She pointed to the close score between the two top ranked firms. She asked if staff considers if firms recently have been awarded contracts in their evaluation. Latvala said she had talked to the county administrator about staffs recommendation. That didnt go anywhere, she said. Latvala also said the No. 1 ranked firm was no longer a local company. Peter R. Brown has its headquarters in Clearwater, but recently became a division of Moss & Associates, LLC, based in Fort Lauderdale. The No. 2 ranked firm, Creative Contractors, has its corporate office in Clearwater. I think we should be involved in setting some parameters as we move forward, Latvala said. This should go to the No. 2 firm so we spread the work around. Then she asked the county attorney if it was legal for the commission to reject the No. 1 ranked firm. These things come to us for a reason, she said. It appears to me we have the authority. There is less than 1 percent scoring points between the two companies. County Administrator Bob LaSala explained that staff follows state law when evaluating firms during the bid process. He suggested that a work session be scheduled to discuss the law and the commissions authority. He gave two options: approve the ranking and begin negotiations or start the bid process anew, potentially delaying the project. However, the money for the project is a federal grant. The project must be completed by 2015. Joe Lauro, purchasing director, reminded commissioners that they had approved the bid process, which follows state statute, two years ago. He said the trained evaluators followed the law to the best of their ability. He said the results of the process had resulted in two firms extremely qualified. Either could do the job, he said. Commissioner Karen Seel, a longtime proponent of local business, along with Commissioners Janet Long and John Morroni, supported Latvalas argument. We sent a clear message to staff that to spread work around was a priority, Seel said. Dont we have an obligation to as much as we can to employ people in Pinellas County and hire companies that are local, Long said. Justice, Roche and Welch were concerned about changing precedent before having a work session. Roche said he would consider changing the criteria for awarding bids after learning more about the process and legalities involved. Im not doing anything today on the fly that smacks of favoritism, Justice said. I think it is possible to agree with everything Ive heard today, Welch said. He said he had heard a desire from several commissioners to give a preference to local firms, minority hires and to set objective criteria. He, too, said he might support local hiring after a workshop, but not a change today. Roche pointed out that the contracts would be paid for from two different pots of money. The parking garage will be paid for with Penny for Pinellas funds. The health center will be built with federal grant dollars. I support going forward and changing the criteria down the road, Morroni said. These are both good companies that do good work. Latvala repeated that she didnt want to change the bid process, which she said was done exactly according to procedure. It is my desire, and ours if we vote yes that way, to spread the work around, Latvala said.About the facilitySeel commented that she did not want to vote to award the final contract on the health center until she knows the costs to the county to run the facility. Staff will likely schedule a work session on the matter for an update on the project. The Department of Health and Human Services was awarded a $5 million Health Resources and Service Administration capital grant in May 2012 to construct a facility to increase access to health care for those most in need in Pinellas. The facility will be an extension of the countys mobile medical unit that currently serves the homeless population at 12 locations. According to staff, the goal is to provide a new health care facility to serve as a patient-centered medical home that uniquely serves the needs of homeless individuals through in-house medical care and social support services. The facility, to be constructed at 14790 49th St. in Clearwater, will house a 24-hour (day) respite facility to provide convalescent care for those recently released from the hospital.

The crash occurred when Kelli Kupfer of Largo was forced off the road by an unidentified vehicle moving northbound on Seminole Boulevard, according to Brad Dykens, public education officer for Seminole Fire Rescue. Kupfer refused medical care at the scene. Kupfers vehicle crashed into the Trans Mini Mart, 5050 Seminole Blvd. No one inside of the structure was injured. Building officials from the city of Seminole responded to the scene to assess damage to the building. Pinellas County Sherriffs deputies were investigating. CLEARWATER A Coast Guard crew pulled two men out of the water Aug. 24 after their 19-foot boat capsized offshore near Sand Key in sight of the Belleair Beach Causeway. A Good Samaritan notified Coast Guard Station Sand Key about 9 a.m. of a boat taking on water and capsizing with two people aboard. A 24-foot special purpose craft-shallow water boat crew from the station arrived on scene, pulled the two men from the water with no medical concerns and transported them to the Belleair boat ramp. Both gentlemen were partially in the water when we arrived on scene, their lifejackets had already drifted away, said Petty Officer 2nd Class Craig Sappo, a crewmember at the station. Everyone is very lucky we got there when we did. Our concern is that because they were not wearing their lifejackets initially, it could have been a much different outcome. We want to stress that the Coast Guard may not be able to get there in time. So wear your lifejackets at all times.Jail drug smuggling operation bustedCLEARWATER A Trinity woman was arrested Aug. 19 after she concealed suboxone strips behind stamps on envelopes and mailed them to two inmates at the Pinellas County Jail. The inmates in turn distributed and sold the controlled substance to other Pinellas County Jail inmates. Since the investigation began on Aug. 1, 2013, deputies intercepted a total of 11 pieces of mail containing the opiate. Kaitlyn Pergola, 29, was charged with two counts of introducing/possession of contraband into a county detention facility. Bond was set at $10,000. She also is being held without bond on charges of violation of probation on doctor shopping charges. Pergolas boyfriend, Michael David Gavin, 29, was arrested for introduction/possession of contraband in a county detention facility. He was transferred to Jefferson County Jail on Aug. 1 on burglary and grand theft charges. Gavins cellmate, Jermonte Russell Rushing, 30, of St. Petersburg also was arrested for introduction/possession of contraband into a county detention facility. He was last booked into the Pinellas County Jail on March 7 on a charge of carjacking without a weapon. Bond was set at $50,000. According to the sheriffs report, on Aug. 1, Gavin was being prepared for transport and transfer to the Jefferson County Jail. Investigators said detention deputies began to grow suspicious when Gavin began to ask every deputy and jail employee he saw or passed to help him get his mail. Mailroom clerks were asked to examine Gavins mail more closely. Four pieces of stamped mail were initially found addressed to Gavin and closer examination of the pieces revealed small square pieces of orange paper concealed behind each of the stamps. The contents of the envelopes were provided to the inmate for his transport to Jefferson County; and detectives retained the envelope and began their investigation to identify the substance behind the stamps. Through their subsequent investigation, detectives discovered additional pieces of mail addressed to Gavin; as well as other pieces of mail addressed to Rushing, which had the same type of orange paper concealed behind the stamps and appeared to have similar handwriting to the letters addressed to Gavin. Research and testing of the orange paper determined the substance to be suboxone or heroin in a breath strip. Detectives further described the substance to be an opiate in the form of a sublingual film. The investigation further revealed that Gavin recruited his cell mate Rushing to have the mail sent to him in exchange for payment; and that the two sold and distributed the contraband to other inmates at the Pinellas County Jail. Investigators say that each stamp was sold for $20; and that each stamp was five dosage units if cut into five individual strips. Through their investigation, detectives were able to identify Pergola as the source of supply of suboxone to Gavin and Rushing. Detectives said she used two fictitious return addresses that were later connected to her. During her interview with detectives Aug. 19, Pergola allegedly admitted to the crime. She was transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.

7A Leader, August 29, 2013 Stop. Listen. Do you have to strain to hear things that once came easily to you? Do you have ringing in your ears? Now think. Do you have to ask people to repeat themselves? Do you get frustrated when speaking to family or friends because you have difficulty following the conversation? Have you begun to avoid social activities because it is difficult to hear? These are a few of the more common signs and symptoms of hearing loss cues that many people sadly ignore. Studies indicate that nearly 40 million people in the United States suffer from some degree of hearing loss ... yet, as few as a quarter of the people who could benefit from hearing aids actually use them because many simply refuse to acknowledge the problem. The patient has to admit they want help, says Lynda Evans of Bob Evans Hearing Center. Others may think their hearing loss cannot be aided by hearing devices. Many times patients dont know what questions to ask or who to trust. If you think you have hearing loss, schedule an appointment with the hearing professionals at Bob Evans Hearing Center. The staff will look at your hearing with one thing in mind hearing health.Like Visiting FamilyServing Pinellas County for more than 22 years, Bob Evans Hearing Center is a family practice with three locations. Bob is a Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist. Lynda, his business partner and wife, is Community Relations Director and Outreach Coordinator. Angelika Stieren, the centers Certified Audiologist, earned her degree at the University of South Florida. Bob Evans proudly sells American made products. We gain our patients confidence by working with them until they achieve optimum satisfaction, Bob says. Patients who choose Bob Evans Hearing Center will find quality service with a personal touch. As is the case in so many health care specialties, theres an appreciable difference between choosing a privately held practice over a nationwide chain. We are a family-owned, multi-line independent practice, Lynda says. We take the time to care for you as we would for our family. As one patient stated, you have treated me so well, I feel like I just got a hug. I know what its like to experience hearing loss, Bob says. He developed hearing loss while serving in the U.S. Marines. Having hearing loss enables him to understand his patients challenges and he knows how to help them. Trustworthiness is the key. Trust and confidence in the hearing specialist is as important to people when buying a hearing aid as cost. The most important components for patient success is our follow-up and Patient Care Coordinators, said Angelika. Those who are new to hearing aids really need support and encouragement.The Hearing Evaluation: What to ExpectNew patients are warmly greeted and made to feel welcome. After an ear inspection, the patient will undergo a thorough hearing exam in a booth certified by the American National Standards Institute. Each center is outfitted with an audiometric testing room that has been tested for sound pressure levels and meets the specifications required by Florida law. The results are evaluated and discussed in detail during the appointment. Bob Evans then makes a recommendation a solution that fits your lifestyle and your preferences.Bob and Lynda Evans stress the importance of having routine hearing evaluations. The hearing test is vital: Its important to have a baseline for their medical records, Lynda explains. Because hearing loss is usually gradual, many people dont realize its happening and wait too long to seek treatment, Bob said. Delaying treatment can impair the brains ability to understand speech. If not discovered in time, the condition can become permanent. In other words, use it or lose it. If you are missing the sounds of your life, what better time than this to schedule a hearing screening? A simple screening will determine if you have a hearing problem, Lynda said. A full evaluation will assess the origin of the loss, degree of loss and its impact on speech perception and discrimination. Dont let hearing loss distance you from friends and family and lead to isolation. Its about quality of life: To enhance their ability to stay connected to the world, Angelika says. The saddest thing we see is when a person suffering from hearing loss starts to withdraw because they feel embarrassed, Bob says. Were here to help a person to recapture some of the sounds their missing.

9A Leader, August 29, 2013 Is the high cost of living and insurmountable debt problems putting stress on your health? Its in the news everyday: the cost of living today is rising much faster than it has in the past. We are seeing higher fuel costs, higher insurance premiums, higher food costs, etc. Many of these costs are well out of our control, and can push us to live outside of our means just trying to maintain a reasonable lifestyle. One way that some people deal with these rising costs is to take out a short-term, high interest loan that can lead to even more problems trying to keep that monthly budget intact and resulting in stress overload. These financial strains can have a significant negative effect on your health, so getting your finances under control should be a top priority. There are solutions to your problems, but it can take time. You will want to review your expenses, cutting any spending that is unnecessary. Try to manage short term finances closely. Put in a plan to repay the outstanding amounts without having to borrow more money. Next, you will want to start a savings plan, no matter how small, and put a bit aside each month for emergencies and other unexpected expenses. Sometimes your situation may be caused by circumstances out of your control. A loss of income due to job loss, illness, divorce, or even the passing of a loved one can cause spiraling debt problems. In many cases a simple budget adjustment just wont help. You may need to seek advice as how to best deal with the debt in these situations. Many times a legal expert can assist you in determining what options are available to decrease or even eliminate your debt, resulting in less stress for you and your family. If you find that your financial problems are accompanied by mental anguish, stress, depression, or other physical health problems, reach out to your physician and ask for help. If you dont have a physician, you can contact your countys mental health center (www.samhsa.gov ) for support options. The most important thing to remember is not to allow financial stress to take a toll on your most valuable asset your health! Find Financial PeaceManaging Financial Stress!

Admired by her clients as both persistent and meticulous, Van Selow discovered her proclivity for drafting in high school. She began her design career at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in California as a receptionist but that didnt last long. Turns out I had a talent for Computer Aided Design when it was first being used, Van Selow said, I taught it to young engineers and learned I really enjoyed designing. Soon they were sending me to Hawaii, Boston, everywhere to teach and I really loved it. Eventually, Van Selow settled down in the Tampa Bay area and was dismayed when she heard tales of substandard work customers had received from some area builders and remodelers. Those grievances led her to earn a license and launch her own business in 2005. In addition to being thorough and focused on each project, Van Selow remains personally involved in every job and also brings other advantages to the table as well. The first advantage is Van Selow has integrated both the design and build phases. In years past, the design phase and the build phase were separated and when these two phases are separated it often leads to problems. Van Selow said, I recognized that many customers here in the Tampa Bay area were unhappy when their design conflicted with what could be built. In order to eliminate this issue I took my design and construction abilities, integrated them and specialized as a design build contractor. This design build system is able to bring both the design and build phase together where all aspects of the build is under one company bringing convenience as well as cutting costs, time and errors. Using one company improves communication as well as resolves disagreements between the designer and the construction crew. The second advantage working with Van Selow is one she embraces in her motto: Quality Construction with A Womans Touch She said, I have found that most of my time is spent with the women who manage the household and they are much more comfortable communicating with a woman contractor. It has also been long known that one of the customers biggest complaints is that the design layout was not developed from the perspective of the woman who manages the household in most cases. I am able to bring both communication and organization of the designs from a womans perspective. Susanne Van Selow has been associated with the Tampa Bay Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry since 2005 and she now serves as the ethics chair. She is a past president of the chapter and a recipient of the Remodeler of the Year Award. The Remodeler of the Year Award is presented to recognize outstanding contributions in the remodeling industry and community service as well as awards and certifications obtained. Van Selow has received a multitude of awards for projects in many categories over the years but is particularly proud of her Kitchen and Bath design build recognition. Van Selow is a certified kitchen and bath remodeler and a Green Certified Remodeler. She said, I am in my eighth year as a Certified Building Contractor and have over 20 years of experience as a designer, working with architects and engineers. Van Selow Design Build, LLC., handles a wide variety of projects specializing in room additions, kitchens, baths and master suites. We also can handle much larger projects as well, Van Selow said. Professional services available through Van Selow Design Build include: Design/Create Plans Residential Remodeling Additions Bathroom & Kitchen Updates Commercial Build-outs New Construction I am a hands-on design build contractor from the design development through to the completion, she said. Painstaking detail in design and workmanship integrating the owners lifestyle needs within the building footprint makes my clients feel comfortable during the construction process and overjoyed with the end results.

10A Leader, August 29, 2013 CG0813 Today's market is presenting specific fixed income risks and opportunities for investors according to Elizabeth (Liza, pronounced Lizza) Campa-Flanagan, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER with Raymond James Financial Services Inc. Liza is attuned to the financial climate. She recently sat down and explained how important it is that investors are aware that rising rates also pose some risks for portfolios. Interest rates have been at historic lows for a number of years and while no one is certain when or how fast rates will rise, the situation presents risks and opportunities to investors, Liza said. Although rising interest rates may provide an opportunity for increasing income, the value of many fixed income investments may decline as rates begin to rise. According to Liza, one concern is that many investors have sought higher yields in this lo interest rate environment and some have taken on additional credit risk to obtain it. Given these and other risks, its important for investors to understand the risks associated with widely held products particularly packaged products in the current, low-interest rate, yield-stretching environment. Credit quality of bond holdings within portfolios should be assessed to determine if they remain aligned with risk tolerance and investment objectives, Liza explained. The ability to predict interest rates is, at best, speculative. To put it politely, no one is very good at it, but lately many industry experts and media pundits collectively seem to agree that there is a rise in interest rates on the horizon. The CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professionalsays the market sentiment for rising interest rates stems from the current historic low interest rate environment paired with an implication that rates can either stay relatively the same or increase. Given this possibility, the questions that follow include: Will interest rates rise? If they rise, by how much? How could this affect an investment portfolio? Liza urges investors who own fixed income securities to be aware of the relationship between interest rates and the price of those securities. As a general rule, the price of a bond moves inversely to changes in interest rates, Liza said. A bonds price will increase as rates decline and will decrease as rates move up. This relationship impacts not only individual bonds, but also investments that contain or attempt to mimic bonds. In view of these facts, now may be an opportune time for investors to review not only how much price volatility they are willing to accept, but also and more importantly to discuss whether changes in interest rates are likely to affect their cash flow and impact the portfolios ability to continue to satisfy their financial needs and goals.DurationIt is helpful to understand a risk measurement known as duration. There are different types of duration, but typically when duration is quoted, it is referring to a bonds modified duration, an attempt to estimate how much the price of a bond will fluctuate in response to changes in interest rates, Liza said. Simply put, a duration of 3 means that a 1 percent (100 basis point) change in interest rates will result in an approximate 3 percent change in the market value of a bond. Remembering the inverse relationship between interest rates and prices, a 1 percent rise in interest rates means approximately a 3 percent decline in market value. According to Liza, this happens because, as interest rates rise, the valuation of existing securities must be adjusted to stay competitive in the new rate environment. For example, since a fixed coupon doesnt change when interest rates rise, the market adjusts the value of the bond in the form of a lower price. With individual bonds, this price adjustment is an unrealized change in value, Liza explained. The lower value of the bond resulting from an interest rate increase is not realized unless you actually sell the security prior to maturity. If you hold onto the bond, the cash flows generated will remain unchanged. Barring a call at the issuers option or a default by the issuer, the individual bond will return interest via its coupon payments and return the face value of the security upon maturity. Regardless of changes in interest rates and market value, if you hold a bond to maturity, cash flows will continue as originally scheduled, subject to the previously outlined conditions. Any sale of a bond prior to maturity may result in the investor realizing a gain or loss. Of course, duration is more complex when evaluating multiple securities or investments that hold bonds. With multiple securities, a duration of three years could be a blend of five securities with a duration of 3 or a portfolio holding five securities with durations of 7, 4, 2, 1 and 1 respectively, Liza said. Each portfolio has a very different profile despite sharing a blended duration of 3. The second portfolios duration risk could change quickly should any of the securities be sold prior to maturity. Investors who own bonds in packaged investments rely on the managers decisions to buy, sell or hold those securities. In these investments, such decisions are influenced by a managers strategy and other factors.Risk managementLiza advises investors to review their portfolio regularly and to know what they own. In any interest rate environment, its a good idea to review your investments periodically to ensure that you are comfortable with the risks inherent in your portfolio, Liza said. If you heed the advice of your financial adviser, you probably already review your account statements on a regular basis to monitor performance and change any investments whose time has passed. The bottom line, according to Liza: Investors should know what they own and how it will react to rising rates and understand todays risks. Most advisers have the ability to run an analysis of individual bonds held to quantify the potential impact of rising rates on the value and total return of the bonds, she said. Liza offers some strategies that investors can consider to manage risks with fixed income allocations: Shorten average duration Shorten the average maturity of bond holdings to reduce sensitivity to interest rate movements. Purchase premium or higher coupon bonds Higher coupons tend to be less volatile in a rising rate environment. Yield curve positioning/diversification Yield curve positioning may help under various interest rate scenarios. Currently, the steepness of the yield curve offers opportunities to generate roll returns from a strategy known as rolling down the curve. This may help protect principal and generate additional return in a rising interest rate environment and allow an investor to capture higher yields. Invest globally Invest globally by seeking sovereign and corporate debt in both developed and emerging countries. Not every country will experience the same monetary policy as the United States. Bank Loan, Floating Rate Bonds, High Yield and other specific bond sectors Some sectors of the bond market are less sensitive to interest rate risks and allow investors to accept different risks. Manage credit quality Minimum A rating for municipal bonds. Investment grade or higher for corporate bonds and preferred securities. Match risk and return with investors needs, goals and overall risk tolerance. Diversify holdings among issuers Maximum of 5 percent concentration per issuer state of sector. Limit risks of a single issuer downgrade or default creating large losses for the overall portfolio.Navigating the financial mazeLiza helps her clients navigate the financial maze by first getting a grasp on their situation and then trying to help them find solutions that make sense for them. Since no one has a crystal ball, its a matter of the client keeping me abreast of their situation, she said. That includes emotions and feelings, because if they are becoming frightened, then we need to make a change. She believes investors should diversify income sources. One way is to reallocate a portion of fixed income holdings to other income-generating securities, such as dividend paying stocks, she said. In addition, an investor can consider other low-correlation strategies besides bonds and dividend paying stocks to mitigate interest rate risk and equity risk. Liza is focused on providing an integrated advice platform for all clients offering investments and capital markets solutions, as well as a full range of trust, banking and credit services accessible through the Raymond James Bank FSB, and Raymond James Trust Company. Through Raymond James she can offer an array of investment alternatives and services equivalent to almost anything Wall Street has to offer.

12A Leader, August 29, 2013 For more than four decades, Diagnostic Clinic has sought to provide the residents of Pinellas County a unique medical experience, combining technology, good service, and board certified physicians to deliver care with compassion, skill, and integrity. Their expansive 150,000-square-foot, six-floor facility, located at 1301 Second Ave. SW in the heart of Largos medical arts district, is specifically organized to maximize efficiency. Its design, however, evokes a feeling of a small physicians office. They also have a 50,000 sq ft multi-specialty clinic in the Countryside area at 3131 North McMullen Booth Road. Altogether, Diagnostic Clinic boasts more than 100 highly trained professionals on staff and thats just the beginning. We are a little bit different, said James F. Rivenbark III, M.D. Chief Medical and Operations Officer at Diagnostic Clinic. Few people realize that more than 60 percent of physicians in America now work for a hospital. However, we think that care is best directed by physicians and can be delivered more cost effectively in a non-hospital environment. Simply put, Diagnostic Clinic seeks makes healthcare less complicated and more efficient by eliminating the need to travel to multiple locations for doctor visits, medical tests, surgeons and healthcare specialists, Diagnostic Clinic has established a kind of one-stop medical home. Patients can get almost all of their medical care in one location, said Rivenbark. Our patients appreciate the fact that they can get all their laboratory tests, imaging tests, see their doctor or specialist and have therapy treatments all under one roof. It seems to be a successful approach given that we now have approximately 100,000 active patients. Integrated Services Diagnostic Clinic was founded in 1969 by four physicians and has now grown to more than 100 healthcare providers serving as a one-stop medical home providing comprehensive integrated ambulatory care. Diagnostic Clinic has sought to leverage technology and new processes to integrate diverse medical specialties and services for the benefit of the patient, said Dr. Rivenbark. This allows us to provide efficient, quality care with good outcomes and an enhanced patient experience. Diagnostic Clinic healthcare providers include primary care physicians, medical specialists and surgical specialists. Primary care physicians include internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics and geriatrics. There are many medical specialists at Diagnostic Clinic working in fields such as cardiology, pulmonary medicine, gastroenterology, endocrinology, oncology, rheumatology, and dermatology. Surgical specialties include general surgery, urology, plastic surgery, gynecology, ophthalmology, and orthopedics. In the both of Diagnostic Clinics multispecialty facilities, patients will find an on-site laboratory and digital imaging services, including X-ray, ultrasound, mammography, CT, and MRI. The Largo facility also has an advanced PET/CT scanner. In keeping with its one stop medical home philosophy, Diagnostic Clinic also offers an ambulatory surgery center, as well as, ancillary services, such as physical therapy, an optical shop, podiatry, interventional spine care and audiology. If the primary care physician notes a problem needing urgent specialty care, they are able to walk the patient to the specialists office, Dr. Rivenbark said. I did this many times during my clinical career and integrating the personal touch with a wide variety of services and technology makes Diagnostic Clinic unlike any other provider in the local market. When it comes to great medical care with efficiency and service, we cant be beat. A Model of Efficiency with a Human Touch Diagnostic Clinic utilizes a sophisticated electronic medical record that is shared by all of its providers. That means no more paper charts, no more waiting for reports to be mailed from one physician to another and no duplication of tests. All of the physicians at Diagnostic Clinic primary care physicians, surgeons, specialists can view a patients chart simultaneously which confers a tremendous advantage in terms of staying on top of what is happening with their medical care, Dr. Rivenbark explains. At Diagnostic Clinic, if you see one physician and go to see another, they can log in and view your entire medical history from the desktop. Communication between physicians is nearly instantaneous, yet patients can rest assured that the clinic's electronic records meet all Federal guidelines for security and privacy. This state-of-the-art technology enables Diagnostic Clinic to provide a much higher level of integrated and comprehensive medical care for patients. Contrast this with what medical consumers face elsewhere with reports having to be faxed or mailed in a paper format. Diagnostic Clinic also offers an online patient portal allowing patients the ability to contact their physicians via secure email. The patient can request prescription refills, make appointments, or even ask questions without having to make a telephone call, Dr. Rivenbark said. The system is secure and meets all HIPAA guidelines. Patients also can use the portal to update their personal information and pay medical bills. Care Coordination Weve worked hard to build a care coordination component within Diagnostic Clinic as another way to better serve our patients, Dr. Rivenbark said. The program targets those patients with chronic conditions who may be in need of a little extra TLC. In addition, we focus on patients who have been hospitalized. Care coordination nurses at Diagnostic Clinic meet with patients in the hospital, schedule a follow-up appointment with their primary care physician within 6 days of discharge, as well as, arrange transportation if needed. After a hospital stay, they follow patients very closely for the first 30 days. We are proud of the fact that this program has cut the readmission rate by about half and we hope to improve that even further, Dr. Rivenbark said. Accountable Care Organization Patients may also be surprised to learn that there is a Walgreens Pharmacy on the second floor of Diagnostic Clinics Largo location. In keeping with its goal of improving patient experience, increasing quality, while reducing the cost of care, Diagnostic Clinic formed an accountable care organization with Walgreens. An ACO applies a physician-led, team approach to patient care in an innovative model that features pharmacists as an integral part of patients care teams. Walgreens pharmacists and clinicians will work closely with primary care physicians in a collaborative program aimed at improving patient health and access to quality care, while reducing overall health care costs. Walgreens works together with Diagnostic Clinics healthcare providers to support and extend the care currently provided to patients by their primary care physicians. The partnership delivers personalized pharmacy care, emphasizing the benefits of physician-pharmacist collaboration. We are proud to continue Diagnostic Clinics leadership as a premier provider of highly coordinated and integrated care, and are thrilled to form this collaborative relationship with Walgreens. Patient Response Patients overwhelmingly approve of Diagnostic Clinics one-stop approach to healthcare. Testimonials posted on the clinics website applaud the best healthcare in town, praise the staffs outstanding care, treatment and concern and liken the rehab therapy program to a well-oiled machine. "I used to run all over town, to this doctor's office for appointments and that laboratory for tests, reports one patient. Since discovering Diagnostic Clinic, I now have to make just one stop for all my healthcare needs. From my husband to my kids, we all take advantage of the excellent care, timely referrals and quick results we receive at Diagnostic Clinic." Every new patient is offered a physician service survey, said Dr. Rivenbark. He explained that the clinic believes surveying first-time patients is the best way to gauge their quality of service. Its a pretty tough survey. Survey responses range from the lowest, 1, to the highest, 5 The Best. According to Dr. Rivenbark, 54 percent of the responses rate a 5 The Best. More than 90 percent are rated as Above Average or The Best. Additionally, to ensure Diagnostic Clinic maintains that level of satisfaction with good quality of care, they have an active physician quality improvement committee. Community Involvement Diagnostic Clinic takes pride in its dedication to the community through programs such as free health seminars the clinics doctors reach out to local residents. This kind of out-reach allows Diagnostic Clinics healthcare providers an opportunity to help Pinellas County residents stay on the road to healthy living. They also have been active in the Pinellas County Schools employee health fairs for the past 3 years. Diagnostic Clinic helps to improve the quality of life in the area by supporting many Pinellas County organizations. They are a trustee sponsor of the Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce, where Dr. Rivenbark has held a number of executive positions and will serve as its Chairman beginning in September 2013. They also sponsor the annual Diagnostic Clinic Golf Classic, with proceeds benefitting Diabetic Charitable Services.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563Dual citizenship wont do it for tea party favoriteLike another erstwhile freshman senator, named Barack Obama, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, blew into Washington and promptly began eyeing the Oval Office. Also like Obama, the Cuban-American Cruz has to suffer the charge that hes not really American and hence not presidential material. Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, to an American mother and a Cuban father. According to most legal eagles, he is natural born in the eyes of the U.S. Constitution. In 2011, President Obama felt compelled to release his birth certificate to counter louche louts such as Donald Trump, who questioned whether the president was born in the United States. Now its the GOPs turn. To inoculate against birther rumors and show that he has nothing to hide, Cruz released his Canadian certificate of birth to The Dallas Morning News. The paper concluded that Cruz is a dual American and Canadian citizen. And dual citizenship wont do for the Texas tea party favorite. Assuming that is true, quote Cruz in a statement released to the media, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but Im an American by birth, and as a U.S. senator, I believe I should be only an American. On the one hand, an elected officials allegiance to this country and its Constitution should be unassailable. Hence, Cruz did what he had to do. On the other hand, Canada is a valued ally whose troops have fought and died beside Americans in Afghanistan. And Canadians are so polite. I once saw a group of Canadian bikers in Montana, and they obeyed the speed limit. Cruz told CNN this brouhaha shows the silly season of politics. No lie. Think Canadian Bacon, the 1995 comedy in which the U.S. president, played by Alan Alda, saber rattled against kindly Canada in a bid to boost his flagging poll ratings. Cruz argues that he didnt think he was Canadian, because his mom was born in Delaware, his family left Calgary when he was 4 and he has lived the rest of his life in America. Seeing as he never took affirmative steps to claim Canadian citizenship, he explained, he assumed that was the end of the matter. Thats very close to the argument made by dreamers illegal immigrants whose parents brought them to America when they were minors. Cruz strongly opposes DREAM Act legislation that would allow those kids, who grew up seeing themselves as Americans, to become citizens. Through no fault of his own, Canada imposed citizenship on him, quipped Democratic communications consultant Roger Salazar. Hes a reverse dreamer. This was going to be a column about the circus-ification of politics and how the birther movement has made solid Americans suspect. Born in Hawaii to an American mother and an African father, Obama represents this countrys constant reinvention. Born on a U.S. military base in the Panama Canal Zone, Sen. John McCain rightly is proud of his familys military history. The son of a Cuban immigrant, who came to America with nothing, and an American mother, Cruz should be proud of his familys attainment of the American dream. But the insanity runs deeper than I first thought, because when I think about it, there is no way Cruz didnt know he is a dual citizen. My guess is he never looked into it, said Sal Russo, co-founder of Tea Party Express. Russos group supported Cruz in his Senate bid. At the time, Russo told me, Cruz gave the lawyer answer about his natural U.S. citizenship. Sorry, but I dont buy it. Dont tell me Cruz didnt know about his dual citizenship. Cruz says his mother told him that when he was in high school, he could claim Canadian citizenship. He was a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist. Hes an expert on the Constitution. He understands the intricacies of Article 2s requirement that the president be a natural born Citizen. He is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School who, in that heady environment, seemed to believe he was the smartest guy in the room. If Cruz didnt know, he didnt do his homework. And Ted Cruz always does his homework.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com. LETTERSGod deserves betterEditor I have spent a better part of my life speaking well of God. I am a follower of Christ, a broken man, who is being put back together again and again by the loving work of Gods holy spirit. I am quite sure that I will never be made perfect in this life, but look forward to the day when I may kneel down before a holy and loving God in eternity who has found a way to save me from myself and all the evil that contaminates the world in which we live. So what I am about to say comes from a grateful heart with no religion to defend, ax to grind, or compelling need to be right. I only want to speak from my heart about someone I have come to love. Remaining quiet no longer is an option. God deserves better than he is receiving from the voices that criticize and ostracize Him in our society. It seems in this day that the critics are on every front. The national discussion is truly void of respect for the God of the Old and New Testament. Jesus has been minimized to no more than a character of a book that is considered unreliable, outdated, and merely an opinion of men rather than a miraculous revelation given to mankind by a God who is seeking to restore his relationship with them. Few people have spent a lifetime studying, researching, and examining the Bible as I have. Public opinion has its foundation today on hearsay rather than fact. Many people search for truth on the Internet, in the newspaper, or the classroom rather than in the Bible. If the celebrity or news media personalities express their opinion, then it must be true. Truth is relative in the national soul of our country and we have missed God. The truth is Jesus said, God did not send the son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him. It was the love of God for all of his creation that was at the core of everything that he did. It was Gods love that crushed the man-made rules of religion that separated ordinary people from God. It was the love of God that healed the sick and raised the dead. It was the love of God that cast out demons and delivered people from the power of evil. It was the love of God that found a way to heal the soul, through total and complete forgiveness of sin because Christ laid down his life on a cross for our sins that we might be able to one day stand in the presence of a holy God in all eternity. The truth is that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, and whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus Christ deserves greater respect than the public opinions of today proclaim. I am saddened that as a nation, it has become politically correct and even in vogue to disrespect Jesus Christ. I really believe we know not what we are doing. My heart breaks for my grandchildren and the future generations if we do not find our way back to God. Mike Rogers, Pastor, First Baptist Church Palm Harbor A salute to my older brother DaveThis week my brother Dave reaches his 84th birthday, and so I thought Id scribble a few words about him, even though hell probably chew me out for doing so. He usually avoids the spotlight, even when he deserves it. For the first 17 years of our lives, Dave and I were not only brothers but also best buddies. With our parents and our younger sister, Dave and I trekked from one tiny Pennsylvania hamlet to another, about 20 of them. When Dave was 6, our parents enrolled him in first grade. I was 14 months younger than Dave, but our landlady happened to be the first-grade teacher. So she squeezed me into the roster without anyone noticing. This allowed Dave and me to share our ragged academic careers including two one-room schools and others of doubtful merit side by side. Moving to a new town each year can be a daunting adventure. Legend paints small town people as friendly and open-handed. Dave and I learned that those hands sometimes contained a rock or a snowball, ready to be aimed at any new kids on the block. Whatever the reception, Dave and I stuck together. Daves presence at my side made life a lot less lonesome. Once we settled into each new location, Dave made friends more easily than I did. Although neither of us was especially athletic, we spent a thousand hours a year in the back yard, playing pitch and catch. Dave was the pitcher, and by our junior year he had developed a blazing fastball. During his two-year career he pitched a no-hitter and won almost all the games he started. I was proud of him. But when he was 17, a touch of rheumatic fever ended Daves pitching. Not long after we finished high school, J. Edgar Hoovers agents came calling. The FBI needs you two boys in Washington to search fingerprints and smoke out Commies in government. With cardboard suitcases in hand, Dave and I boarded a bus for the big city. For the next six months we shared a room at 1923 N. St. NW, just west of Dupont Circle. We rode streetcars to our night shift duties in the shadow of the Capitol. We ogled the women, and were told what a great man Mr. Hoover was. It was an exciting life for two country boys. Our lives separated in July 1948 when I joined the U.S. Navy. Dave stayed in Washington for a while and married a fabulous woman named Pat. During the next 40 years they lived and worked in Pennsylvania, the Virgin Islands, Las Vegas and finally in Pinellas County. Dave usually worked two jobs, and Pat pulled on her oars right beside him. Their married daughters, Linda and Sue, had settled up north. Early in 1990 Pat felt pain. Within a few weeks she died of cancer. Dave was suddenly alone. He stayed put in his home on a peaceful side street in north Pinellas. He found enough employment to give his days some structure. He formed friendships with a few congenial ladies. He and I swapped occasional visits. In 1999 my own wife died and I moved to New England. During the next decade, on each of my six-times-a-year visits to Pinellas, I hooked up with Dave for lunch or supper and a couple of hours of jawboning. He is a lively conversationalist, opinionated but always interested in the ideas of others. Dave and I slowly grew old together. Two years ago Dave stopped meeting me, or anyone. He quit his job. Depression had set in, big time. I urged him to seek help. So did his daughters. He declined. The darkness deepened. Then two angels stepped in. They took the form of a neighbor couple, Chris and Sharyn. They hadnt seen Dave for many days, and were worried. They entered his home and found him with one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. Soon came an EMS squad, a hospital room, a brief stay in a rehab center. Daves daughters quickly arrived and took charge. With the help of those ladies and their husbands, Dave was returned to the real world. He moved back to Pennsylvania and settled into a firstclass independent living complex. Today Dave is as happy as Ive ever seen him. His health is good, his mind is sharp, and hes delighted to be alive. Hes grateful to Linda, Sue, their husbands, Chris and Sharyn and others who served as his rescue squad. And so am I. Next time you see someone who seems to be beyond help, I hope youll think of my brother Dave. Happy 84th, bro!Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

Do you know that theres a television show specifically for dogs? Brad said, between questions. He wasnt kidding. Now comes the First Television Channel for Dogs DOGTV. The pay channels 24/7 programming helps stimulate, entertain, relax and habituate dogs with shows that expose them to various movements, sounds, objects, experiences and behavior patterns, all from a dogs point of view, its website says. Depending on the cable provider the cost is between $4.99 and $9.99 a month. Yup, its the latest contribution to the advancement of the joys of pampering pets. Whats next? Brad asked. Pet pornography? Oh, why not. If Richthofen the Doberman seems moody or out of sorts, whats wrong with perking up the Pinscher with a DVD such as Penelope the Promiscuous Poodle. Dont you like the way that gal wags her tail, Richthofen? Beats hell out of watching Scoobie-Doo, doesnt it? More on pet pampering: Many communities are embracing regulations allowing people to bring their pets to restaurants. I have mixed feelings on this matter. I dont mind eating at restaurants where dogs are sitting at their owners feet as long as the dogs dont smoke. However, I also have seen people bring their dogs to restaurants and put them on blankets on the ground under the blazing summer sun. That borders on animal abuse, to me. I just hope I never have to give CPR to a dog, even if shes as cute as Penelope. Speaking of animal abuse, I wonder if the time will come when mistreated, neglected or slandered dogs show up in court with an attorney? One of the most clear-cut cases of cruelty to animals that has been ongoing for decades is practiced by one of our lower institutions of learning, the University of Georiga. There ought to be a law against any dog being forced to be a mascot bearing the name UGA after that loathsome school. Of course, being from Georgia, the poor bulldog is probably too dumb to figure that out. Along those lines, what about pet protests? What if cats and dogs get tired of being paraded around in funny clothes, sunglasses and bonnets? Shouldnt they be allowed to march down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washingion, D.C., marking every tree and fire hydrant they pass by en route to the White House? Could be interesting. The longhaired Russkiys against the K9 unit. Film at 11, on DOGTV. Ever been to a pet cemetery? As a cub reporter, I wrote about one near Vero Beach several decades ago. One of the gravestone epitaphs read, Sleep well, sweet nose. There also was a plot for a monkey. I guess my light-hearted angle to the story angered some readers. I received a letter from a lady chastising me for not taking the death of a lifelong pet seriously. Her point was that pets are people, too. I let her have her say and didnt respond to her. Sometimes it is better to let sleeping dogs lie. I wonder what DOGTVs ratings will be? This from the FAQ about the pay channel:My dog seems extra excited when watching DOGTV. Is this ok? DOGTV was designed to offer your dog a variety of stimulations both exciting and relaxing. For the first few times, your dog might be extra excited just like when meeting a new friend.Wait till the dog gets a load of Penelope. Im wondering if there will ever be a time when pets will enjoy the same constitutional rights and societal privileges as their owners. Will they wear tuxedos to weddings? Be the best man or flower girl? What about death right for pets? Reason number 100 why I want to be cremated is that I dont want to be buried near any animal, such as a monkey. Even worse, next to a Georgia Bulldog.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond@TB Nweekly.com.

Exp. 9-30-13 Ashley Marie Lovelace and Jeffrey Michael Robbins were married on Saturday, May 25, 2013, at Church by the Sea, Madeira Beach. Pastor David Ruth and Pastor Charles Reeb officiated.

They reside in Largo.Lovelace-RobbinsMom advocates the benefits of kids learning musicIn the past few months, both of my girls started playing musical instruments. My oldest daughter Randi, who is almost 9 years old, plays piano and my youngest daughter Graci, who is 7, plays guitar. We were fortunate to find two wonderful teachers. I am amazed at how fast they picked up on learning to play. I have always heard that it is good to start kids young if you want them to learn a second language, and I guess that goes for musical instruments too. They pick up so much faster at a young age. I know that for a fact because I am trying to learn guitar with my daughter. At her lesson and while she is strumming away, I just cant seem to get the chords. Recently Randi had her first piano recital. She had to play two pieces of music. The first piece she had to memorize and the second piece was a duet with her teacher. Randi was a little nervous since this was her first time playing in front of a group. The recital was held inside a chapel, and it was full with excited parents, grandparents, siblings and friends. There were about 10 other students who played. Their musical abilities ranged from beginner to intermediate. All of them did a fantastic job. While I was watching these young students play, I could only imagine how beneficial this performance was for them. It was such a great experience for my daughter and for the other students. It built their confidence and their self-esteem. After the recital my daughter asked her teacher when the next recital would be because she had enjoyed this one so much. I know the parents enjoyed it too. I was watching their faces as their kids were performing, some taking photos and videos. I know I was proud of my daughter, and I could tell that the other parents were proud of their children too. I had a similar experience with Graci about a month before when she had her first concert after only playing guitar for a few weeks. Because she was so new at playing guitar her teacher just had her sing the song while he played. Vocals are part of her lessons; I think thats why she loves guitar so much, because she loves to sing. We heard Taylor Swifts songs White Horse and Never Grow Up more times than we wanted to, but at least she was practicing. Her concert was at a local restaurant and there were quite a few people there too. When her teacher called her up to sing, she got up and sang her little heart out. She had no fear whatsoever. I was shocked that she wasnt nervous at all. I guess all those modeling and etiquette classes shes been taking since she was 3 are paying off. After she got done she said how much she loved singing in front of people. In a few weeks, she has another concert in which she will be playing the guitar and singing. My kids take private lessons because their school doesnt offer guitar or piano, but I do know there are public elementary and middle schools that offer guitar, piano and band classes. I know most high schools offer band. If your child has the chance to play an instrument, encourage them to do so. It is such a wonderful gift, and it will benefit your child throughout their life. Remember, getting them involved when they are younger may make it easier for them to learn.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 8, lives in Seminole.

Some of these Jews are not affiliated with a synagogue; others will be traveling on business; and a sizable percentage simply dont feel comfortable in a synagogue setting. Another alarming issue, particularly in light of todays flailing economy, is that many cannot afford the cost of services, which can run $1,000 or more for a family of five. Whatever the case is, many of these would-be worshippers are feeling the pangs associated with being left out of the holiest days of the Jewish calendar. Chabad of Clearwater, the local branch of the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, has presented its own High Holiday services option, providing free Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services in a warm and inclusive setting. Chabads services are user-friendly, making it enjoyable and meaningful for both the beginner and the advanced. Song, commentary, and the use of English-Hebrew prayer books, enable those of all levels to become active participants in the services. Chabad of Clearwater will be presenting Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services this year at the Holiday Inn Express in Clearwater. The ballroom space will enable congregants to have spacious seating. Following is a schedule of High Holiday services: Rosh Hashanah Wednesday, Sept. 4: evening services, 7:30 p.m. Rosh Hashanah Thursday, Sept. 5: morning services, 9:30 a.m.; youth program, 10:30 a.m.; shofar sounding, 11:30 a.m.; mincha and tashlich service, 7 p.m.; evening services, 8:15 p.m. Rosh Hashanah Friday, Sept. 6: morning services, 9:30 a.m.; youth program, 10 a.m.; shofar sounding, 11:30 a.m. Yom Kippur Friday, Sept. 13: Kol Nidrei services, 7:30 p.m. Yom Kippur Saturday, Sept. 14, morning services, 9:30 a.m.; Yizkor memorial service, noon; Mincha and Neila closing services, 6 p.m.; final shofar blowing, 8:10 p.m.; gala break-the-fast buffet, 8:15 p.m. There is no cost but donations are appreciated.

PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority announced that 23-year veteran Julio Palmer is the 2013 Driver of the Year. Palmer has an outstanding record and will now vie for the title of Florida Driver of the Year, facing off against the best drivers from other transit agencies across the Sunshine State. Before joining PSTA, Palmer spent 23 years in the U.S. Army, serving as a tank commander and drill sergeant. He said that training is invaluable when it comes to navigating a bus along the roads of the most densely populated county in Florida. Theres a lot of responsibility when it comes to protecting the safety of our riders, he explained. But, I wouldnt have spent my last 23 years driving a bus if I didnt enjoy it. When asked what he likes best about his job, Palmer smiled and said he enjoys the fact that every day is a new experience, plus theres a special joy of getting to meet and know the people who regularly ride his routes. Those who know Palmer and his calm, easy-going demeanor are usually surprised to find out that he was a drill sergeant for much of his military career. In fact, that experience has helped develop his ability to keep cool and not let outside influences rattle him that he credits with being the key to winning Driver of the Year honors. Letting things roll off of my back, like a car cutting me off, is essential, he said. Ensuring the safety of a busload of passengers is too important to let little things get to you. Palmer credits his mother for his healthy dose of empathy as well. She always taught me that you never know what other people are going through or what theyre dealing with, so try to put yourself in their shoes before you make any judgment, he said. As a driver, Palmer has learned that something, even as simple as a smile and a pleasant greeting, can change a persons day and when you can do that, he said, its a great feeling. Palmer is currently driving PSTAs new North County Connector routes. For more information, visit www.psta.net.

Rick Scott announced Aug. 20 that PODS Enterprises, a national leader in the moving and storage industry, is expanding its headquarters to the Feather Sound Corporate Center in Pinellas County. The project will create 40 jobs and $2.1 million in capital investment by 2016. Scott said, PODS decision to expand in Pinellas County and create 40 jobs is great news for Florida families. PODS considered other locations like Georgia, but realized that Floridas business climate is one of the best in the nation. Since taking office, our focus has been on job creation and turning Floridas economy around. With the creation of more than 330,000 private-sector jobs created since December 2010 and our unemployment below the national average, at 7.1 percent, we know that our pro-growth policies are working. This is great news for Pinellas County and the state of Florida and we look forward to PODS continued growth in the Sunshine State. PODS has experienced tremendous growth over the past year and a larger space to accommodate the number of new associates became necessary. PODS will occupy the entire third and fourth floors of a six-story, Class A office facility by the end of the year. Our growth and our desire to provide a great place to work for our associates has driven our need for expansion, said John B. Koch, president and CEO, PODS Enterprises Inc. Moving our corporate headquarters into the larger location in Feather Sound also allows us to expand the size of our National Sales and Service Center at our current location. We are very excited about our relocation and are happy to be staying in Pinellas County. PODS has hired 324 new associates this year. In addition to the expansion to Feather Sound, the existing facility at Rio Vista Drive for the National Sales and Service Center in Pinellas will be upgraded to include additional training facilities and room for additional growth. Industry leaders, like PODS, have found that Pinellas County is an ideal headquarters location, said Mike Meidel, director of Pinellas County Economic Development. We look forward to assisting the team at PODS, as they expand their headquarters and create 40 new high-wage jobs in Pinellas. The project was made possible through strong partnerships between Enterprise Florida, Pinellas County, Pinellas County Economic Development and the Department of Economic Opportunity. The expansion of PODS Enterprises headquarters is welcome news for Clearwater families and will significantly benefit Pinellas County and all its residents, said Florida Department of Economic Opportunity executive director Jesse Panuccio. Creating jobs for Floridas families is the top priority for this administration and this announcement is another example that the pro-business policies aimed at getting Florida back to work are succeeding.Big Vito LoGrasso opens wrestling academy By TIFFANY RAZZANOCLEARWATER Wrestling star Big Vito LoGrasso is bringing a taste of the ring to Clearwater with his new wrestling academy. LoGrasso will celebrate the grand opening of Big Vitos Wrestling Academy at Sports Club 24, 2147 Pine Forest Drive, Saturday, Aug. 31, starting at 1 p.m. Its another stepping stone in my legacy, he said. With over 23 years of wrestling experience, LoGrasso has done it all, he said, from top to bottom. The superstar has wrestled for the likes of World Championship Wrestling (WCW), World Wresting Entertainment (WWE), World Wrestling Federation (WWF), and other professional and independent leagues around the world. Ive made it and Ive learned the business from the bottom up, he said. The one thing you learn in wrestling is that you pass it on. Now its my turn to pass it on. LoGrasso emphasizes that his program is an academy, not a school, and stands apart from other local programs because of its focus on discipline and honing the craft of wrestling. Most of those schools dont have someone with my experience behind it, he said. A lot of schools out there maybe dont have the credentials. In addition to guiding his future students on the athleticism and finesse required in the ring, LoGrasso also will teach them about the business side of the sport. I will teach my students everything from how to be a well-grounded grappler to how to take care of and present themselves, he said. LoGrasso, originally from Staten Island, N.Y., has called the Tampa Bay area home for about eight years. He began wrestling in 1990 on the independent circuit before being approached by NOW Wrestling Federation based in Japan. Since then, hes wrestled for a number of wrestling organizations, donning ring names such as Skull Von Krush, Von Kruss and Big Vito. I got to travel the world, live with different cultures, experience different people, he said. Its been wonderful. It made me a well-rounded person.

He also is eager to align himself with the Clearwater community, and hopes to use his name and his wrestling academy for the good of local nonprofit groups and those in need. I think its important to be a part of your local community, he said. For more information about Big Vitos Wrestling Academy, visit www.bigvito.com or call 813-409-0469.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerSocialization is critical for all people, regardless of age. But seniors can be more prone to a state of loneliness if there is little contact with others. Most seniors have spent a good portion of their lives, raising children and/or in the workforce. Once the children build lives of their own or possibly plans for retirement are near, socialization decreases, especially if the seniors are losing some of their independence such as driving. An active social lifestyle is more important than ever in helping seniors maintain a sharp mind that will help keep them connected to the world around them and increase their feelings of happiness. Helping others is one of the best ways to feel better about you and at the same time continue to stay socially involved. Seniors who stay connected have less depressionVolunteering in the local community is also a great way for seniors to stay active, involved and will enhance the feeling of belonging. There truly is a need for volunteers in various organizations. The skills and talents of seniors in our society are valuable and needed. Volunteering in a local hospital is very rewarding. Escorting patients, assisting with clerical tasks, staffing the gift shop or greeting visitors is just a few examples of possibilities. If you have a parent or loved one whom you care for, acting as an advocate can be an intimidating task. But there are ways to remain positive, and proactive with your aging parents. The key is to be attentive, understanding, and involved with your parents as they age. Your positive attitude and your efforts to understand their feelings is a wonderful way to say thank you for all they have done for you over the years. If your parent is spending a lot of time alone and finding difficulty in completing tasks, call Comfort Keepers to learn about the companionship we provide along with assistance with meals, errands, walks, grooming and other daily tasks.Comfort Keepers approach to in-home care is centered around a concept called Interactive Caregiving. Comfort Keepers plan activities appropriate to each clients health conditions and physical abilities, from walks in the neighborhood or grocery store, to playing games to sorting through pictures for albums. Transforming daily activities into interactive activities helps keep our seniors strong, improves outlook on life and reduces the risks for injury, depression and dementia.082213Keeping Our Seniors Socially Connected Clinical study for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Are Diarrhea and Abdominal Discomfortputting a cramp in your lifestyle?Diarrhea, abdominal discomfort and bloating may be signs of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Boot Camp with Instructor Darrell Philip is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., at the Highland complex.Manatee Alert App availableA Florida-based corporation, EarthNC, through their conservation venture Conserve.IO, has teamed up with Save the Manatee Club to help boaters reduce the chance of hitting and harming manatees in Florida waterways, with the free Manatee Alert App. This smart phone-based map displays instructive visual alerts, notifying boaters when they are approaching manatee speed zones. It also helps facilitate the reporting of injured manatees and manatee harassment to the proper authorities to ensure urgent help where needed. The new Manatee Alert App is a good example of how smartphone technology can help the public become better informed, help protect an endangered species, and contribute to preserving our environment, said Brad Winney, of Conserve.IO., in a press release. With the majority of the public now having some form of smart-phone or tablet, applications like Manatee Alert can provide safety and conservation messages in real-time. During the busy Labor Day weekend and throughout the year, manatees are especially vulnerable to the heavy boat traffic moving through the waterways in every direction. Floridas manatees have already suffered a catastrophic year due to a prolonged red tide event in southwest Florida and an unknown toxin in the Indian River Lagoon. There have been 717 manatee deaths from all causes so far since Aug. 9, 2013, which is higher than any previous years total mortality, with exception of the cold stress mortality event in 2010. At the current rate, the mortality for 2013 will likely break all previous yearly mortality records since record keeping began. In addition to these complex events, boat collisions continue to pose a serious long-term threat to the manatee population. Since many manatees inhabiting Florida waters bear the scars from past encounters with boats, use of the Manatee Alert App can go a long way toward preventing such injuries and deaths, said Katie Tripp, Save the Manatee Clubs director of science and conservation. Tripp is excited about the new apps ability to help boaters help manatees. People from all over the world vacation in Florida and many recreate on Florida waters, she said. The Florida boating community is encouraged to get the free Manatee Alert App as well as Save the Manatee Clubs free public awareness materials to help prevent manatee injuries, suffering, and death. Waterproof boating banners, dock signs for Florida shoreline property owners, boating decals, and waterway cards containing safe boating information, are available by contacting Save the Manatee Club at education @savethemanatee.org, by regular mail at 500 N. Maitland Ave., Maitland, FL 32751, by calling 800432-5646 or visiting www.save themanatee.org/boatertips.htm. To download the free Manatee Alert App, visit bit.ly/15EYen6. Photo by JIM LAYFIELDRed-eared sliders line up on a fallen palm tree in a pond off of Ulmerton Road and 66th Street in Largo Aug. 25. These turtles, often sold as pets, are the most commonly exported reptile species, but are not native to Florida, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. However, they can breed with yellow-bellied sliders, native to north Florida.Follow the leaderFishing good despite heat, humidityWe are undoubtedly right in the thick of the dog days of summer. Blistering heat and high humidity can make it uncomfortable at times out on the water. Thankfully weve had a little breeze and some great tides with the passing full moon. Despite warm water temperature fishing on a whole has been very good. For the past six weeks or so weve watched small fry bait mature into the size good for casting. Target these baits at sunrise right along the beach swash channel. A quarter-inch mesh cast net is a must for this size bait. Relocate the small white bait to near-shore artificial reefs, jetties and or deep grass patches just inside of the passes. Schools of Spanish mackerel have settled into our area and will respond well to handfuls of free baits at any of these locations. Those wanting to use artificials should do well with Mirro-dines, silver spoons and white buck tail jigs. Grouper fishing has been really good in 40 to 60 foot of water. Plenty of keeper sized red grouper are holding in these depths and can be taken on frozen sardines. The gag grouper also will take the sardines. However, those willing to spend the time collecting big grass grunts are sure to be rewarded for their efforts. Target 2to 4-foot ledges, giving special attention to any bait shows you mark on your depth finder. Redfishing was good around this last full moon; look for the fish to bunch up again on the approaching new moon. Target spoil island edges that are attracting schools of mullet to be holding the redfish. Freelined, tail trimmed pinfish have been working great. Running a top-water lure around the mullet schools early in the morning will help to locate the school.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Yesterdayze will perform Sept. 13. Yesterdayze plays a selection of Top 40 hits from 1960 through 1969 everything from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to Jimi Hendrix and Steppenwolf. According to Alex Kinlaw, Yesterdayze was created in 2007 by a group of like-minded professional musicians who wanted to celebrate the incredible genius of the songwriters and performing artists of that tumultuous time period. Kinlaw, a founding member, had come up with the name Yesterdayze during the early 1990s while performing with his wife, MaryLu, who fronts the band. It resonated with this group, and Yesterdayze was born. The music from the decade that was the s impacted society like no other before or since, said Kinlaw in an email.

In 1976, after changing his surname from Mahoney to Money, Eddies fate changed when he was introduced to legendary promoter Bill Graham while performing at one of Grahams events. The two quickly became close, with Graham serving as both his mentor and manager. Money burst onto the scene with his eponymous debut album in 1977. Fans immediately fell in love with his sound, and the album, which went double platinum, featured hits like Baby Hold On and Two Tickets to Paradise. Money followed the success of his debut album with a stream of Top 40 hits, as well as some of the eras most creative videos for songs like Think Im in Love and Shakin. In 1986, the singer released Cant Hold Back, which featured the classic, Grammy-nominated duet with Ronnie Spector, Take Me Home Tonight.Photos courtesy of the artistsAbove, Yesterdayze is the second act in this years Music in the Park concert series, taking the stage Sept. 13 at Seminole City Park.

Tickets also may be purchased at The Florida Orchestra ticket center, found in the St. Petersburg College Building at 244 Second Ave. N., St. Petersburg. Business hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The season opener will be Beethovens Symphony No. 9, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 11, 8 p.m., at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N. W.C. MacInnes Place, Tampa; Saturday, Oct. 12, 8 p.m., at The Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S., St. Petersburg; and Sunday, Oct. 13, 7:30 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.

There also will be three morning Coffee Concerts at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Wednesdays. The Florida Orchestra has sold out many concerts in the past few years and has grown its attendance base by 27 percent since the 2008-09 season, contributed to in part by lowering its ticket prices significantly on the Masterworks and Pops series, which was initiated as part of an accessibility initiative in the 2011-12 season. Because of the communitys interest in a variety of musical styles, the orchestra has also introduced a three-concert Rock Concert series, and in recent seasons has staged some special performances that have include classic films with live orchestra accompaniment and programs of video game music.

Some local fans who live in the Seminole area asked why the band hadnt played the Music in the Park series. We thought that was a good question, Kinlaw said. So we looked into it, and the folks in charge thought we were a good fit. So here we are! The outdoor setting at Seminole City Park suits Yesterdayze perfectly. Probably the best thing about playing outdoor festivals is the closeness and intimacy with the fans, Kinlaw explained. Every show can be a miniature Woodstock experience. Following SPANs salute to Sinatra and the s revival performed by Yesterdayze, the Music in the Park series will continue with Troy Duncan playing American country on Sept. 20, Tommy Roxx and the Big Deal serving up Southern rock on Sept. 27, The Sounds of Soul reliving the hits of Motown on Oct. 4 and Rus Anderson paying tribute to Elton John in his Rocket Man Show on Oct. 11. Anderson takes the final slot in this years Music in the Park lineup and the show is sure to be a must-see event for area Elton John enthusiasts. The Rocket Man Show is an exact re-enactment of a young Elton John concert, featuring replica costumes, 100 percent live instrumentation and a grand piano. Anderson has spent years perfecting his playing, vocals and mannerisms to deliver a compelling and energetic tribute, one that has been endorsed by the official Elton John Fan Club. Anderson is originally from Scotland. He has lived in Clearwater for about 10 years. I attended SPC Seminole campus, Anderson said in an email interview. So I have a lot of friends in Seminole. As a full time Elton John tribute, most of my shows are out of town often out of state, so when I was approached by a local agent about performing a summer concert series here in Seminole with my band I was super excited. Its not too often I get to play to a home crowd! Andersons show features a solid catalogue of Elton Johns greatest hits, from the touching ballads to the blazing rock anthems. At every performance, he strives to give the audience a memorable night filled with nostalgia, singing, laughing and participation. Hes particularly looking forward to performing at Music in the Park. The atmosphere at the band shell in the park here in Seminole is electric, Anderson said. The backdrop is beautiful with all the trees and the lake, but most of all, there is a family-friendly, exciting energy when an event is taking place there. Anderson has attended several events at Seminole City Park as an audience member, but this will be his first time on the performing end. It doesnt get much better than playing an open air stage at sunset to a rocking outdoor audience! In addition to the city of Seminole and Waste Management of Pinellas, other presenting sponsors include the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake, DeLoach and Hofstra PA, Seminole Title Company, Keller Williams Realty Gulf Coast, Dr. Sandra Lilo and Barnhorn Financial. Event sponsors include Humana Marketpoint, Oakhurst Medical Center, Seminole Historical Society, First Home Bank, Greater Seminole Area Chamber of Commerce, Ritas Italian Ices, Sapphire Signs, Seminole Beacon, Seminole FireFighters Local 2896, Suncoast Chrysler Jeep Dodge and Yoga4All.
