Commissioners debate their raisesLargo commission votes 5-2 to raise their salaries equal to staff pay increases By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Admitting that the process always feels very awkward, Largo Mayor Pat Gerard opened the debate on whether she and her fellow commissioners should receive the 2.5 percent pay increase the commission approved for the rest of city staff Sept. 3. Of all the votes that we take in a years time this is the one that makes everybody sitting up here squirm, because youre voting on your own compensation, Gerard said. Unfortunately, its the only way it ever gets voted on. The mayor currently receives an annual salary of $19,688. Commissioners are paid $13,125 a year. Earlier in the meeting, commissioners unanimously agreed to a 2.5 percent raise or the rest of city staff. But during the budget workshop Aug. 16, they were divided when Commissioner Michael Smith suggested they forgo the same pay increase for themselves. Smith remained adamant in his position on the issue, promising that he would give his increase back to the city if he lost the vote.I really think people run for this office because they have a passion and care for this city, not for the pay, he said. From my gut, I cannot support us getting (a raise) this year.Smith works for the Pinellas Park Public Library and said that as a city employee, hearing that city leaders were giving up their raises while rewarding employees, even with a small raise, would be a big morale boost. He and Commissioner Jamie Robinson were the sole votes against the increase. Smith and Robinson also are the newest additions to the commission, winning elections for their seats in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Commissioner Harriet Crozier reminded the new Music sceneTampa Bay will welcome a diverse selection of musical artists in September including Maroon 5 performing Sept. 13 at the Mid Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fair, Diana Ross at The Mahaffey Theater Sept. 10 and Steely Dan, who takes the stage at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Sept. 14. ...

Grego was speaking at a Pinellas Education Foundation event at the foundations headquarters on Starkey Road. We need to be concerned, Grego said. We cannot test ourselves to excellence. Grego and other panel members gave their views on Common Core standards, which were established by the state in 2010 for English language arts and mathematics. Florida is in a group of 19 states called the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. Under consortiums plan, Florida students would take PARCC assessments in place of the FCAT by the 2014-2015 school year. Grego said he is a champion of accountability but was skeptical of the 20 days of assessments that PARCC had initially proposed, saying it equates to a full month of assessments on the school calendar. So you are going to take too short of a calendar which is 10 months and really should be 11, and take it down to nine , he said. He also wants to make sure that students are being tested for the subject content and not the ability to maneuver through a computer test. Is the student knowledgeable about mathematics or is he knowledge about solving a math Photo by TOM GERMONDPinellas County Superintendent Mike Grego gives an update on the state of education in the county at a Pinellas Education Foundation event Aug. 29. Later, a panel discussion was held on topics such as Common Cores educational standards.Overflow crowd vents frustrations on flood insurance By MELINDA GREENETREASURE ISLAND About 200 people turned out at the Treasure Island City Hall Aug. 27 to hear a panel of speakers and vent their concerns over the controversial Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. The overflow crowd was funneled into the nearby community center where the presentation was televised simultaneously. Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning introduced the speakers for the evening who included Patty Latshaw, vice president and principal flood coordinator, Wright Flood; Anita Ford, agency principal of Insurance Resources; Anita Ryals Wright Insurance Regional Sales Manager; Pam Dubov, Pinellas County Property Appraiser; Jim White of Century 21, and Ron and Jacob Holehouse of Holehouse Insurance. The aim of the bill is to end federal flood insurance subsidies or discounts for owners of homes and business buildings built prior to 1974 and the implementation of the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). Opponents of this legislation say it is guaranteed to send the cost of flood insurance premiums soaring for many Pinellas County policyholders. The bill has been approved by the House of Representatives and is scheduled to take effect Oct. 1, pending a final vote from the Senate when it reconvenes in September Under this legislation, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) has the ability to increase premiums by up to 20 percent a year. Premiums will increase an average of 10 percent for policies By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO On Sept. 2, the family of bowlers and staff met for one last time at a small bowling alley in Largo. Twedts Lanes, first opened in 1967, shut its doors this week, the property sold to an out-ofstate corporation. Tracy Bolton, who worked at the bowling center for 20 years, got teary-eyed as she echoed the sentiment of many in the room that day. Its sad, very sad, she said. Were like a big family. Bolton was pregnant with her second daughter while she worked at Twedts. Her daughters, now 18 and 22, grew up in the center, which hasnt changed much over the years, she said. She, her daughters and other family members the ones who werent working came to bowl one last time and say goodbye to everyone Sept. 2. Everybody all week long has been making an appearance, coming to see the building one last time, come bowl a game or two, Bolton said. Its a shame. Everybodys getting together too late. The waiting list for a lane was an hour long that afternoon. Many of those bowling said they would miss the family atmosphere. A lot of bowling alleys are a lot larger than this. This one, its all family, said Kay McAleer, who sat at the bar eating lunch with her husband,Photos by JULIANA A.

4A County Leader, September 5, 2013applause from the audience of civic and school leaders as he made his final remarks on the issue. Florida needs a sound assessment that works, that is balanced with instruction as we just cant keep testing ourselves to some kind of glorified state. Gus Bilirakis, a Republican U.S. representative of Palm Harbor, also had some concerns about Common Core standards and said he would listen to local school officials. Im worried about too much testing now, he said. He said that Common Core is not a national mandate, and Congress passed legislation to make sure the federal government does not force this on our states. Regarding Common Core as a whole, State Rep. Larry Ahern, RSeminole, said he thinks the bottom line for Florida is that the standards described are what the student should know or learn. They dont spell out the how for teachers. I think thats the important part to understand about this set of standards, Ahern said. Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford said lets stop and take a longer look at how Florida goes about writing its own set of standards. Again, thats our prerogative. Theres been no federal mandate for that, he said. Gaetz and Weatherford have recommended that the state dont participate in PARCCs testing plan that is in conjunction with the new Common Core State Standards. School Board chairwoman Carol Cook said the district has to reach the standards set by the state, and the board and superintendent will determine curriculum. School Board members had a lot of training in Common Core over the summer, she said. So you as citizens have the opportunity to have input through your school board members as well as the employees of the school district will have an opportunities to have input. And how we do it and what we choose as far as books and curriculum, that is still a local decision, Cook said. Common Core internationally benchmarked standards define what students in kindergarten through 12th grade should know in English language arts and mathematics. The standards include changes in how teachers teach to help children succeed in the areas that matter most, the Pinellas school districts website says. Also on the panel was St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster. The moderator was Gypsy Gallard, publisher of the Power Broker Magazine, which targets Blacks in the Tampa Bay Area. Local officials, civic and education leaders attended the event, called the Superintendents Roundtable, State of Education. written or renewed on or after Oct. 1, 2013. The law also eliminates grandfathering, which now allows owners of properties built to previous standards to keep their current rates. A proviso to this is that structures built during that time having a certain base elevation in compliance with a construction date on or after the communitys initial FIRM date and before Jan. 1, 1975 are still eligible for built-in compliance grandfathering. Commercial property, homes used as a secondary residence and condominiums built pre-FIRM would also be impacted. Banks and other lending institutions require flood insurance for most mortgages in low-lying, high-risk areas. Under the pre-FIRM, policy owners living in towns and cities that participate in the Community Rating System have qualified for insurance discounts of up to 20 percent. Subsidized rates are based on how high the lowest living area in a building is with respect to that communitys base flood elevation. Treasure Islands base elevation, for instance is between 11 to 12 feet; under the current pre-FIRM rules. If you are rated at the lowest level for base flood youre going to be paying about $1,835; those who live 2 feet below you will see your premiums increase to $6,442; you go 6 feet and your annual premium jumps up to $15,183, said Latshaw. Philyss McMillan, general manager of Treasure Bay Hotel and Marina on Treasure Island, said she got quite a shock when the business changed insurance carriers and needed to acquire an elevation certificate. We learned we are 5 feet above sea level, i.e., minus-6, she said. We now have the pleasure of paying an additional $3,000 a month for the same coverage of our hotel. Unfortunately, the fact is commercial businesses will have no choice but to share some of this cost with the consumers and the effect it will have on tourism in our area is of deep concern. Well, its great to be the property appraiser, joked Pam Dubov, Pinellas County Property Appraiser, as she took the podium, Ive come to you with no good news at all. With regard to the impact the bill is likely to have on local market values, Dubov said, The evidence from what I have heard from Realtors and bankers is mixed. There are people who can afford to pay those rates, but they are very few in number compared to those who have been participating in the market. Information regarding the age of a home and whether it lies within a flood zone can be found on FEMA maps. With the base elevation level now a major factor in determining how much insurance costs will be, Dubov said that without a certificate of elevation, its impossible for her office to ascertain how high the lowest living area of a house is with respect to the base flood elevation. Currently, no clearinghouse exists where this type of information can easily be found. Base flood elevation levels, she added, vary from house to house regardless of the street or neighborhood in which it is located. The federal government has moved ahead to put this program into effect, but they have yet to identify a database we really need to determine in advance who is most likely to be affected, Dubov said. A certificate of elevation can be obtained from either the property developer or from community officials such as the city or towns planning and zoning office for a cost of $200 to $500. Hiring a licensed land surveyor to prepare the document is an option as well. Some property owners seeking to renew their policies on or after Oct. 1 will see a 25 percent annual increase in their flood insurance policies until they can supply a certificate of elevation that indicates their full-risk premium rate is lower than the subsidized rate using the current FIRM. The Biggert-Waters Act signed into law in 2012, was designed to stabilize the Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA) federal flood insurance program which found itself $18 billion in debt after Hurricane Katrina; in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy that figure has ballooned to about $24 billion. Residents hoping to relegate this bill to the ash bin were to make their voices heard and to contact Sens. Bill Nelson, Marco Rubio and Congressman Bill Young. Were small, but were mighty, Minning told the crowd. Contact our elected officials; its the only mechanism we have to get a reprieve from this. FLOOD INSURANCE, from page 1A EDUCATION, from page 1A BriefsEducation center helps pair find a new career through service By BOB COSTIGANThe Pinellas Technical Education Centers along with its Public Works Academy has been offering students various career and technical education courses since 1962. Today they offer a wide range of programs, everything from accounting and automotive service technology to computer systems technology to dental assistant and practical nursing more than 60 programs in all. Their mission is to provide students the opportunity to develop national workplace competencies to fill the needs of business and industry. Edward Davidson, 55, of St. Petersburg and Rashard Young, 22, of Clearwater are both currently unemployed and are students in PTECs Public Works Academy. They volunteer at Pinellas Countys South Cross Bayou water reclamation plant as part of the curriculums volunteer requirement time needed to graduate. Young said he is interested in someday becoming a wastewater or water treatment plant operator. He discovered that PTEC enabled him an opportunity to get his foot in the door with a big city or municipality while going to school and getting his license. Davidson, who previously worked in construction, said he was looking for a career change when he heard about PTEC. He likes PTEC, saying it prepares you to get a job with a city or county and it gives you the hands-on training needed. And you get to network with a lot of different people. Davidson also would like to become a facility operator. While he notes no one knows for sure what the future holds, this is really going to help us. While they have only been volunteering at the plant for a few weeks, together they have done and are learning to do a variety of things, such as working with the plant operator to determine how much chemicals, such as chlorine, is in the water. Christina Pellegatti, technical project coordinator at South Cross Bayou, believes Davidson and Young as well as PTEC and the Public Works Academy are very helpful. With the budget shortfalls that county has seen in recent years, they have come to rely on volunteers more and more. Its a win-win situation for everyone, she said. Ray Gorman is a teacher at the Public Works Academy and agrees with Pellegatti, He notes that for students like Davidson and Young its a training and education program to help them get entry-level jobs in public works, which has about 14 different career paths. The academy has supplied South Cross Bayou with volunteer students in the past. Its a great relationship because without the assistance we have with Pinellas County it would be very difficult for us to do our program, said Gorman. Our students have to have 195 hours of intern on the job experience so the volunteer program has been a real success in helping our students meet that requirement. Both Davidson and Young receive financial aid through the school. They offer Federal Pell Grants and other agency scholarships, which are available to eligible students and is used to help students meet their educational expenses. Pinellas County volunteers can expect to make a difference in the life of their community, while exploring interests, sharing knowledge, assisting others and making friends.

This short-term change from chloramine to chlorine disinfection is a routine maintenance measure designed to optimize water quality. Those impacted by this maintenance program include Pinellas County customers as well as customers in the cities of Clearwater, Pinellas Park, Safety Harbor and Tarpon Springs. Many communities using chloramine convert back to chlorine for a short period to maintain system water quality. Pinellas County switched to chloramine in 2002 to ensure compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards. Kidney dialysis patients should not be impacted, but should contact their dialysis care provider for more information about chlorine treatment. Fish owners should not be affected if they already have a system in place to remove chloramines, but should contact local pet suppliers with any questions. There are no major indications of significant bacteriological contamination problems and this disinfection program is designed to maintain distribution system water quality and minimize the potential for any future problem. The water will continue to meet federal and state standards for safe drinking water. Customers may notice a slight difference in taste and/or odor of the water during this temporary change in treatment. Conditions experienced by water customers will be identical to the more than 50 years prior to 2002 when chlorine was used as the primary disinfectant in the water. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities or contact Pinellas County Customer Service at 464-4000.Education workshop free to homebuyersFor those thinking about buying a home but unsure of where to start, a free homebuyer education workshop is a good place to begin. The workshop is being offered on Saturday, Sept. 14, 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., at the Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County, 600 Cleveland St., Suite 800, Clearwater. Attendees will learn the basics of the home buying process, including helpful resource information on down payment assistance and homes for sale. The workshop is especially helpful for those who are working with a lender and need a homebuyer education class certificate or have owned a home before and are considering a new purchase. Course materials from NeighborWorks America will be available for purchase by check or cash. The books feature comprehensive materials, helpful in navigating the home buying process. The cost is $17. Those who complete the class also will have the opportunity to win door prizes. The class size is limited so those interested should call 464-8210 or email housingfinanceauthority@pinellascounty.org to register. The Housing Finance Authority of Pinellas County and the Pinellas Community Housing Foundation sponsor the workshop. Master Food & Nutrition Volunteer program beginning soonThe Pinellas County Extension Master Volunteer University is looking for volunteers to help whip up a healthier community. Scheduled to begin in October, the Master Food and Nutrition Volunteer program allows persons to share with county residents valuable lessons about nutrition, fitness, wellness and culinary arts in a fun environment. Volunteers reach a variety of citizens including seniors, children and families through faith-based organizations, family centers, schools, recreation centers and other organizations. Prior training, education and nutrition knowledge are not needed. What is required is a personal commitment to volunteer and a sincere desire to learn and help others along the way. To rise to the level of a Master Food and Nutrition Volunteer, participants will take a 40-hour training course developed by Extension experts. The classes will run from Tuesday, Oct. 1 through Tuesday, Dec. 3. Classes will be spiced up with lectures, workshops, demonstrations and field trips to give volunteers all the tools necessary for success. Applications for the program must be submitted by Friday, Sept. 20. A $50 training fee covers class supplies and course materials. For an application, email Nan Jensen at njensen@pinellascounty.org or call 582-2104. RAISES, from page 1Acommissioners that past commissions had debated whether the city charter should dictate when Largo leaders receive raises, instead of the commissioners themselves. But past leaders always came back to basing any increases on what the rest of city staff received, she said. None of us ran to get the salary. We ran for the city and to help the residents. I think everybody understands that, but I also think we work very hard, Crozier said. The last raise commissioners received was a 4 percent increase, equal with staff, in 2009. Commissioner Curtis Holmes said that the increase, which amounted to about $7 a week, almost covered the gas he spends running errands around town. We dont get any reimbursement for expenses whatsoever, he reminded his fellow commissioners. Smith argued that every event he attended and every board he participated on was a choice he made for which he shouldnt have to be compensated. Commissioner Woody Brown said that he thought it was good that Largo commissioners had other day jobs, but had no problem voting for the pay increase. Personally, I give up income so I can be a city commissioner, he said, adding that the role commissioners provided was very valuable to the taxpayers and the city of Largo. The debate came after the commission passed the first reading of the 2013-14 budget and tax rate. Holmes correctly predicted that he would be the sole vote against raising the city property tax rate from 5.0 mills. The proposed rate, at 5.21 mills, is equivalent to $5.21 for every $1,000 in taxable value. The increase is designed to bring in 5 percent more in property tax revenue as was collected last year. It helps fund the 2.5 percent employee salary increase, an additional police officer and another IT administrator to cover growing service needs. Largo resident and Friends of Largo Nature Parks President Pat Edmond spoke in favor of the tax rate increase. I did the math and its extraordinary to me, but that increase is $4.57 a month more than what Im paying now, she said. I cannot imagine what I can buy for 15 cents a day, let alone have to give it up. So I think Im going to be fine. This simply is not a catastrophe, and I feel that way about this budget as a whole. Holmes argued that while the citys increase was small compared to other taxing entities in the county, it was part of a cumulative increase that was hurting Largo residents. Yes, the services are great, but you still have to draw the line somewhere, he said. Commissioner Robert Murray pointed out that the citys annual survey showed residents continually support the services it provides, especially parks and recreation options. Gerard asked city residents to speak out if she was wrong. But I believe that the people of Largo trust us, she said. The services we have are a benefit to the people who cant afford to go pay for those things. The final public meeting on the budget and tax rate will be held Wednesday, Sept. 18, 6 p.m., at Largo City Hall, 201 Highland Ave. Residents are invited to attend and voice their opinions. TWEDTS, from page 1Ason and parents. They know our names, what we like to eat and drink. You get the same thing every time, ribbed General Manager Todd Janssen, who played on a bowling league with McAleer. Twedts is special because of its size, Janseen said. The staff has time to chitchat with the bowlers. When youre this small, of course we know everybody by name and face. We get to know them on a more personal level, he said. They just pop their head in my door because they know they can. Janssen came to work at Twedts 15 years ago, moving from Ten Pin Lanes in Pasadena, the second bowling alley owned by Barbara Stealy and jointly called the little centers with the big heart. Janssen said Twedts has had its highs and lows, but he would miss the people most of all. You fight with them one week. And the next week, you come back, and youre having a drink with them, he said. Stealy received a very generous offer to buy the property at an opportune time, Janssen said. According to Pinellas County property records, the sale closed Aug. 19, transferring the property at 13100 Seminole Blvd. to a company based in Kansas City, Mo., called Legacy Largo for $1.85 million. Janssen said the new property owners plan to convert the bowling alley into a strip mall. It doesnt surprise me at all. Everything around heres being bought up, said Janssen, who will become a general manager at Ten Pin Lanes. I dont know why theyre going to put a strip center here when theyve got one (next door) thats got three empty spots in it. Photos by JULIANA A. TORRESAbove, Olivia Hughes, 7, of Largo bowls with her family on the last night Twedts Lanes was open Sept. 2. At right, General Manager Todd Janseen chats with longtime customers Wesley Germann and Debbie Minkel of Seminole, enjoying a meal with their family During the winter, Twedts was home to about 16 leagues, some bringing a bus full of residents from nearby mobile home parks. The staff helped some of those leagues reestablish themselves at nearby bowling centers, Janssen said. Others were divided up into other leagues elsewhere. Jim Thompson, a member of the bowling league from Lincolnshire Estates in Largo, said he wasnt happy that the league would be playing at Liberty Lanes from now on. Were comfortable here, said the 83 year old. The staff helps out every way they can. Lifelong Largo resident Erin Hughes and her family bowled one last time with the Kilpatrick family Sept. 2. She said she was sad that the family lanes were closing down. She remembered coming to the bowling center as a kid for youth groups and events. Her 93-year-old stepfather played on a league for 15 years. Her husband, Jeff, and Michael Kilpatrick played on a mens league together. At least two of the families kids have had birthday parties at Twedts. Youre always connected somehow, even if you dont come regularly, she said. Everybody knows everybody.

Pinellas County Coastal Manager Andy Squires told members of the Barrier Island Governmental Council Aug. 28 that work may not begin until next spring. It was previously hoped the projects would be done later this fall. More details will be known in the next few weeks. Squires said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is expected to award a bid Sept. 13. Once they award it, the contractor has 10 days to submit a schedule, he said. So it looks like by the third week of September well know what their schedule is. Squires said there have been changes because of the dozen projects across Florida that the Army Corps is trying to complete due to the storms last summer. Theres a shortage of dredges, said Squires. Several of the dredging companies originally had a May 1 completion date for the project. But it was strongly suggested by the Corps to extend that to Sept. 30, 2014. Otherwise we may not get a bid or the bids would be extremely high. So, we dont know what their schedule is going to be, Squires added. Theres a good chance it wont start until next spring. On the other side, weve been monitoring the beaches and theyve been doing rather well. So if we dont have any bad storms in the meantime, I think well be OK.Restore Act fundsPinellas County officials are considering ways to spend about $22 million it will receive as part of a civil lawsuit settlement through the Restore Act and the U.S. Clean Water Act. Altogether, Squires said Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas would receive about $15 billion in fines related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. There are three main pots of funds that will be coming to Pinellas County, said Squires. Theres one pot that will be coming directly to Pinellas County not through the governor and not through a federal council. Squires said he has been tasked with developing a plan for the county to come up with a set of projects to implement when the money becomes available. He said the county doesnt know when that will be. So Ive been talking with county administration and our commissioners regarding a process to basically come up with a plan and the direction Ive been given is to develop a county-wide advisory committee of maybe seven individuals, Squires said. He said it would consist of a BIG-C rep and perhaps a couple from the cities, the MPO and possibly staff from a couple of agencies. So Im asking the BIG-C if they would like to recommend a representative that I can move forward to administration for approval, Squires said. He said it would be a four to six-month process with three to five meetings. He said projects selected must help the ecosystem or the economy. Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning, who is chairman of the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council and is familiar with the Restore Act, was later selected as the BIG-C rep. Squires said Pinellas County would receive its share over a 10to 15-year period, which means youre looking at about $1.5 million to $2 million per year. It sounds like a lot of money but when you think about it, it wont pay for undergrounding (of utilities) on Gulf Boulevard, said BIG-C president and Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos. By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE After leading Seminole Fire Rescue for the last three years and 31 years of total service to the city, Fire Chief George Bessler has stepped down. Bessler informed City Manager Frank Edmunds of his retirement, which went into effect on Aug. 30, by email on Aug. 1. Terry Tokarz, currently the assistant fire chief, will take over as interim fire chief while Edmunds conducts a nationwide search for a permanent replacement. In his email to Edmunds, Bessler wrote: It has been my pleasure to serve the City of Seminole and the greater Seminole community for over 31 years. I have truly enjoyed and have found it very rewarding to work with dedicated emergency response personnel that sincerely care about the wellbeing of each other and our community. I have also been fortunate to work for a City Manager that genuinely cares about the welfare of our employees and of the community. Bessler, 53, will join the East Lake Fire Rescue Department as assistant fire chief of training/EMS. He served as training chief with Seminole Fire Rescue for seven years and said he dearly loved doing that work, providing training for firefighters. While he said serving as fire chief has been extremely rewarding, he wants to finish up his career in public service in a position he loves. I enjoyed that aspect of the position, but Im young enough and healthy enough to go back and do what I love doing, he said. He plans to permanently retire when hes 60. George has served the greater Seminole area very well during his successful career and has demonstrated true leadership skills during his tenure as Chief of the department, Edmunds said. Bessler, who lives in Seminole, is president of the Rotary Club of Seminole Lake and is involved with the local Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of America. Tokarz, who has 25 years with Seminole Fire Rescue, said hes interested in applying for the fire chief position permanently. My belief is that most people start jobs with expectation of advancing throughout the rank, he said. You dont start in fire service immediately as fire chief; you work your way up. And Ive done that here. He added, Im excited about the opportunity and looking forward to the number one challenge of being interim fire chief and ultimately applying for the job and seeing what happens. It would be the final exclamation point on a fabulous career here. Tampa Bay Newspapers print publications are online at www.TBNweekly.com.

TORRESSEMINOLE A construction pickup truck rolled over and spilled diesel fuel on Park Boulevard near Lake Seminole Park Aug. 29, causing traffic delays on both Park and Seminole boulevards while crews cleaned up the spill. Seminole Fire Rescue responded to the scene of the crash at around 11:20 a.m. The driver of the Dodge Ram, who has not been identified, was transported to Bayfront Medical Center with non-lifethreatening injuries via ambulance, according to agency spokesperson Brad Dykens. Between 20 to 40 gallons of fuel spilled onto Park Boulevard from the pickup truck, which was also carrying construction equipment, Dykens said. He must have fueled up this morning, he said. Crews worked to contain the spill Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESSeminole Fire Rescue firefighters block off eastbound Park Boulevard to contain a diesel fuel spill after a Dodge Ram pickup truck rolled over Aug. 29.and to keep it from going into the estuary. Firefighters used hazardous containment products that operated like dams to keep the fuel from spilling down the gutters and into the sewer system. They also laid down a flame-retardant blanket to keep the fuel from catching fire. But the agency called a private contractor to the scene to help clean up the mess, Dykens said. It exceeded the capabilities we had, he explained. Officials cordoned off eastbound Park Boulevard while the spill was cleaned up. Without an easy detour around the blocked roadway, traffic was severely affected throughout the area. Police beat Police beatLARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are investigating a deputy-involved shooting that occurred about 12:12 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, in Largo. According to detectives, Deputy Ethan Taylor was on routine patrol when he ran the tag of a gray 1994 Acura. The vehicle came back as a stolen vehicle reported out of St. Petersburg Police Departments jurisdiction. Taylor requested backup and began to follow the vehicle. The suspects vehicle pulled into a gas station located on the corner of 142nd Avenue North and S. Belcher Road.

According to the sheriffs report, on Friday, Aug. 16, between 11:10 a.m. and 1:32 p.m., a black male, wearing a green buttoned-up collared shirt and jean shorts was observed walking through the parking lot of JAR Medical Group. The suspect then walked toward the back of the building, removed a bicycle and rode off traveling southeast. The bicycle is a pink/purple girls Huffy bike with flower prints on the sides and seat of the bike. The tires, handlebars and pedals are turquoise in color.

Earlier this month, detectives with the Sheriffs Office Crimes Against Children Unit began conducting an investigation into allegations that Calvin Dowd, 35, had sexual contact with a minor under the age of 12. The alleged events took place in December of 2006 at Dowds residence. During the reported incident, Dowd approached the victim as she slept and inappropriately touched and fondled her. Detectives interviewed Dowd and the victim on multiple occasions. At the conclusion of the investigation it was determined Dowd had nonconsensual sexual contact. Dowd allegedly admitted to the allegations.

Taylor and Deputy Lorie Fagan entered the gas station parking lot and began to approach the suspect near the gas pumps. The suspect noticed the deputies approaching him and put his vehicle in reverse. He then accelerated the gas, causing his vehicle to hit the unmarked car driven by Fagan. The suspect then put the car in drive and attempted to exit the parking lot. Out of concern for officer safety and the safety of those in the area, Taylor began to fire shots at the suspects vehicle, the sheriffs report said. The suspects vehicle then hit the curb and drove into a retention pond where it came to a stop. The suspect, Bryant Collins, 32, of Clearwater was taken into custody and transported to the Pinellas County Jail where he was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and driving while license was suspended/revoked. No injuries were reported. Deputies Taylor, 47, and Fagan, 52, are on routine paid administrative leave.

According to the Center For Disease Control, 1.3 million people are abused in the United States alone. Of those 1.3 million, 80 percent of them are women. According to the Pinellas County Domestic Violence Task Force prevention committee the number one way to end domestic violence is by speaking out against it and the prevention of it, protecting the survivors, and always saying something when you see it happening. Last year, 13 people were killed in Pinellas County, by people who told them they loved them. In 2011, 11 people were killed by their partners. These people were doctors, teachers, pastors, horse enthusiasts and mothers people who you may have seen every day. Domestic violence isnt biased. It affects all races, all genders, all tax brackets and all ages. The Center For Disease Control has called it a plague on our society and killing more people than most cancers. So what can you do to help? Pinellas County has two domestic violence outreach centers and offsite shelters to assist in ending these problems and helping the survivors heal. The Haven of RCS (call 441-2029) handles all incidents and neighborhoods north of Ulmerton Road. Community Action Stops Abuse, or CASA (call 895-4912) handles all incidents and neighbors south of Ulmerton Road. Both are nonprofit organizations, which means that they survive off the donations from the community. Your donations will keep them working toward the end of this disease. You could organize a neighborhood, church or community donation drive for one or each of these shelters or take up the cause on your own. Both of the shelters need the same items on a continuous basis: bras of all sizes, wipes, socks, bath robes of all sizes, shoes, flip flops and slippers of all sizes, childrens clothes, hair brushes and combs, twin-size sheets, hair care products, bath towels, feminine hygiene products, blankets and quilts, body wash and soap, hand towels and wash cloths, facial scrub, lotions, purses and organizers, journals, deodorant, alarm clocks, razors, calculators, bus passes, cosmetics, strollers, gift cards and phone cards. Donations arent the only way you can help. You can pick up the palm cards from each of the outreach centers and put them in dressing rooms, sitting rooms, restaurants and bathrooms. You have the ability to assist in ending domestic violence in our community and save the lives of people like the young woman in our story. Chad Herman, a Largo resident, is a motivational speaker dedicated to inspiring his audiences toward social change, ending violence and affirming others ability to create a better future. Visit his website at www.motivat ingforpositivechange.com.The story often begins in a similar way: a young lady becomes involved with a wonderful young man. They spent most of their time together. It feels like love at first sight. After many months, this young man begins suggesting that the lady wear only the things he likes. She wants to please him, so she wears things that make him happy and by doing this, she is happy too. A few months later, he makes comments on her weight, her friends and even her view of herself. His words echo statements shes heard from others that she loved in the past. By the end of the first year, she wears what he tells her to, speaks only to the people he allows her to and feels horrible about herself. She believes he is right about everything. She explains to concerned friends that it is mostly her fault that he gets angry sometimes. One day, her sister asks her to lunch. She is happy to go and having a great time until her phone begins ringing. The text messages and voice mails become increasingly more threatening until he arrives at the restaurant. He screams at her and when her sister speaks up he yells at her as well. He puts the woman into his car and drives away. Its four months before her sister sees her again. She wont look anyone in the face and she has fresh bruises on her arms, her chest and her face. Her friends, her family, even people passing on the street ask to help her but she looks the other way for fear of being seen talking to someone. Two years into the relationship, the young woman walks into a bathroom and finds a card. It asks: Does your partner hurt you? She cries, calls the number and is soon on her way to a domestic violence shelter and a wonderful new life. Domestic violence affects all of us! Whether we are friends, acquaintances or neighbors to the abused or the abuser, we are affected. One in three women will be in an abusive relationship in their lifetimes. One in four teenage girls will be verbally Inspiring ChangeChad Herman Health briefsSams Club to host health screeningsSams Club will host free diabetes awareness health screenings to promote early detection and prevention of diabetes and prediabetes, and to help with blood sugar measurement.

Viewpoints 9A Leader, September 5, 2013When public schoolsopened earlier thismonth, classroomsupply cabinets were well stocked. It wasnt because of some great windfall of tax dollars. Rather, it was the willingness of teachers and parents to dig deeper into their own pockets for the common good general classroom supplies. Hand sanitizers, tissue boxes, and paper towels, for example, along with the usual stash of crayons, pencils, pens and paper fill these cabinets. Its a given that classroom supplies will be fronted by teachers and the parents. A nationwide survey of 800 teachers for the National School Supply and Equipment Association (www.nssea.org) found that teachers annually spend $1.6 billion of their own money on classroom supplies. On average, teachers said they spent $485 of their own money on school supplies, instructional materials and other classroom materials during the 2012-2013 school year. Ten percent said they annually spend $1,000 or more out of their own pockets. Another finding was that 25 percent of teachers surveyed required parents to purchase general classroom supplies but that was down from 47 percent surveyed in recent years. There did not seem to be an explanation of the drop. Since 1998, Florida has allocated a public school teacher stipend for classroom supplies and materials. This year, the Florida Teachers Classroom Supply Assistance Program will provide up to $250 per teacher. Gov. Rick Scott initiated a debit card for teachers for that amount to ease the process. But the Tampa Bay Times reported last week that only seven districts out of 67 had enrolled Miami-Dade, Orange, Hamilton, Hendry, Jefferson, Lafayette and Levy. But thats not to say other districts teachers wont see the money. Most districts for years have provided the state funding directly to teachers by check. Districts also are concerned that the state debit system doesnt take effect until late September, six weeks after most schools opened. We look for improvements in the system next year. Community response to the classroom supply dilemma is growing. Civic groups and businesses organize drives for students in need and teachers. Tax dollars will only stretch so far.Margo C. Pope is a former opinion editor of The St. Augustine Record. In my next life I hope I can be a songwriter. I can think of few achievements more satisfying than to compose the lyrics of a beautiful song that captures love, courage, heartbreak, sweet memories, struggle, regret, revenge, faith or other emotions. I cant recite more than a few lines of the Gettysburg Address or Dr. Kings I Have a Dream speech. But I can give you every word of This Land Is Your Land, Dont Fence Me In and dozens maybe hundreds of other popular songs. I bet that you can, too. How do song lyrics get so deeply embedded in our brains? Repetition, probably. In the cradle we are treated to lullabies. By age 3 were exposed to nursery rhymes. Unless were hearing-impaired or living in a mine shaft, at every stage of our lives the songs keep coming at us from radios, TV, iPods, computers, movies, our own children. The best songs, and some of the worst ones, will be repeated so often in an average lifetime that the words and melodies become pinned to the corkboards of our minds. The first songs I can recall were The Way You Look Tonight and The Music Goes Round and Round. Our nations entry into WWII brought Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition and Der Fuehrers Face. I entered my teens in the company of Sinatra, Como and Nat Cole. I must confess that after the advent of rock music in the 1950s I memorized many fewer lyrics. Today Im an illiterate when the conversation turns to rap, hip hop and other noise-ridden varieties of music. For an intriguing exercise, try listing 20 or so events of your own personal life, and then name the pop hits that were current at that time. It shouldnt be hard to do. I go into nostalgic shock each time I hear Jo Stafford sing You Belong to Me, at the top of the charts in September 1952, when I entered college and life was greener than its ever been for me, before or since. Can you name the tune thats triggered in your mind when you remember the first time you kissed your true love? Or the love that got away? Im a sucker for love songs with happy endings. Maybe some day the Pew Research Center will launch a study to determine how many love songs have a happy theme vs. those that deal with romances that ended badly. Among the upbeat titles might be Youd Be So Nice to Come Home To, When Your Hair Has Turned to Silver, Till There Was You, Our Love Is Here to Stay, Just in Time, and Long Ago and Far Away. The sad songs might include Are You Lonesome Tonight?, I Cried for You, Autumn Leaves, Dont Get Around Much Any More, and one of the most poignant tunes in all of song-writing history, Yesterday. Legend has it that Paul McCartney produced that song in about 10 minutes. Examples like that pretty well demolish the notion that great works of art must, or should, be the product of years of suffering. Other countries and cultures have rich histories of songwriting and memorable ballads, but offhand I cant name any other nation that has churned out the volume of popular music that the USA has. A history of America could be written based on the songs that reflected the struggles, triumphs, madnesses and enthusiasms of our country and its people. Although the USA has steadily become more citified, I recently heard that countrywestern songs are the music category most requested and played on American radio stations. Despite my lifelong admiration for many music performers, Ive had personal contact with only two people in the music business. One was the late Helen OConnell, who sang with the Jimmy Dorsey band and alongside Bob Eberle during the 1940s. My wife had known Helen in Los Angeles, and when Helen performed in the Tampa-Orlando region in the s and s we would sometimes hook up with her for a visit. My other musical acquaintance was my Bucknell University fraternity brother Bruce Lundvall, whose skill at discovering and developing talent led him to become the head of the prestigious Blue Note label. In recent years Bruce has lamented the radical changes in the music industry. People used to pay cash for song records and take them home to play. In todays digital era, you can just switch on a radio or computer and download songs, free of charge. Pop music has changed in other ways. Too often, dignified performance has given way to tawdry exhibitionism. Can you picture Ella Fitzgerald or Rosemary Clooney displaying their pudenda the way Miley Cyrus did a week or two ago at the video music awards? I cant, and I dont want to. Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.CNNs Dr. Sanjay Gupta admitted earlier this month that he had been wrong in his opposition to medical marijuana during the rollout for his documentary Weed. Gupta reported on research that demonstrated the proven benefits of marijuana in treating neuropathic pain. Medical marijuana was the only drug that helped a 5-year-old girl with Dravet syndrome live without constant seizures. It calmed the constant hiccupping of a 19-year-old. Israelis use it to treat Parkinsons disease and other ailments. Gupta took on the federal governments classification of marijuana as a Schedule I drug, which has no accepted medical use but has a high potential for abuse. (Heroin also is a Schedule I drug. Methamphetamine is Schedule II.) Gupta now believes that classification is an outrage. The doctor didnt say marijuana is all good. He cited research that found that regular use by teens can lead to a permanent decrease in IQ. But Gupta could find no documented case of a death from a marijuana overdose, whereas someone dies every 19 minutes from a prescription-drug overdose. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 80,000 Americans die each year from excessive alcohol use. Last week, Guptas sentiments were echoed on the right when columnist Charles Krauthammer, a former psychiatrist, told Fox News that alcohol is much more harmful than marijuana. Quote Krauthammer: If I were starting a society from scratch and had to choose the intoxicant, I would outlaw alcohol and Id allow marijuana. (Side note: But seeing as he cant reset the world, Krauthammer said he wouldnt legalize pot.) Guptas about-face might well signal a sea change in how this country looks at marijuana. Gupta told CNNs Erin Burnett that he used to look at medical marijuana advocates as malingerers who are just looking to get high. But he came to see that cannabis not only helps severely ill people but also averts the dangerous side effects of more potent pharmaceuticals. Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy announced Monday that his committee will hold a hearing Sept. 10 about the correct federal response to state laws legalizing the use of medical marijuana and, in the cases of Washington and Colorado, recreational use of marijuana. Is President Barack Obama paying attention? Reporter Jessica Yellin asked White House spokesman Josh Earnest last week whether the administration was considering changing marijuanas Schedule I designation. Earnest responded with a long-winded no. Before the American Bar Association recently, Attorney General Eric Holder delivered a speech that was supposed to signal big changes in the administrations approach to nonviolent drug offenders. But he didnt mention marijuana enforcement, even though his Department of Justice has waged a ruthless war against medical marijuana dispensaries. Federal prosecutors have not only sent registered California dispensary operators to prison but has also gone after their landlords, their bankers and contractors. Listen to Gupta and Krauthammer and its fair to surmise that marijuana is the least harmful of all controlled substances. Its less toxic than alcohol, which is legal. Its less lethal than prescription drugs. So why is Washington still waging a war on weed?Email Debra J.

Debra Saunders As I See ItMargo Pope Public helps keep classroom supply cabinets stockedLackeys of big insuranceE d i t o r : News reports say Citizens insurance will raise rates again? This despite the fact that Citizens already charges three times the national average for insurance. It is now time to put an end to Citizens price gouging by constitutional amendment. If the state Legislature actually represented the people of Florida, overcharging to the level of extortion by Citizens would have been stopped years ago. However, as everyone knows our state legislators are nothing but lackeys for big insurance and the price gouging by Citizens will continue. It therefore looks like the only way for the hurricane lashed property owners of this state to have reasonable insurance rates is a constitutional amendment that would not allow Citizens to ever charge more than the national average for insurance.

The fall snook season is now open. Remember, for snooks the regulations are as follows: size limit on snook is 28 to 33 inches with a pinched tail, with a bag limit of one fish per person per day. Pinching the fishs tail requires anglers to measure the fish at its absolute maximum length. And as always a snook stamp is required in any situation that a saltwater fishing license is required. After what were a much improved catch and release summer for snook, its hard to argue with the way the snook fishery has been managed. The largest concentrations of snook right now are still going to be found in or around any of the inlets leading out to the Gulf. These fish have been hanging around bridge structures, jetties and sand shoals for the past few months and has undoubtedly received their fair share of catch and release angling pressure. Concentrate your efforts on peak tidal movement and always keep in mind that snook feed best on a major solunar period. When these two events align, the bite can be awesome. Fishing up next to bridge pilings requires pretty heavy tackle. Drop down hand sized grass grunts on a good moving tide and be ready to turn the fish away from the pilings just like you were grouper fishing. The pass shoals and jetties require a downsizing of tackle, light leaders and a loose drag will catch far better in these spots. Big grass grunts still work great here, as does a good-sized pilchard. Many of the fish have actually begun to move out of the passes and began their trek inland. Nocturnal anglers know that this is the time of year that dock light fishing starts to get good. Those deepwater dock lights off the beaten path can often hold their fair share of keeper-sized snook as we head into the fall months. Live threadfins work great and as for artificial lures, the Maverick Golden eye gets the nod. Beach snook remain a viable option. Early morning sight-casters can walk the beach looking for snook cruising the shallows. Though their numbers have thinned out some, anglers should still expect to encounter a decent amount of fish holding on most Pinellas County beaches. Shallow diving plugs or lip-less twitch baits work great on the beach, as does a free-lined shrimp.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

(305) 923-4153011013 Dolphin baby season ends on a high noteLife at sea does not play out for our benefit, but it is to our benefit to watch it play out. This summers 2013 birth season of the Johns Pass bottlenose dolphins has played out like an Alfred Hitchcock movie, at least for those of us who monitor the health and well-being of the local dolphin community. The suspense has been nothing like the terrible dolphin die-off on the east coast of Florida, however. We have much to celebrate, though only one newborn bottlenose dolphin has appeared each month between April and July, two of whom perished. The lack of newborns was eased this week with the appearance of two new babies at the end of August, delivered on par with Hitchcocklike suspense. Eight dolphin subgroups recently assembled near a tidy little causeway and included all of the calves born to local moms this year, some calves from previous years and the two new bonus babies. Dolphin-like, the best action was a combination of fantastic and frustrating. The fantastic part was watching Sticks brandnew baby attempt its first hours of life. So new that its dorsal fin had not quite stiffened and its baby mouth still bore the traces of mammalian whiskers that would vanish that day, it revealed one of the first challenges of learning to swim like a dolphin. This challenge involved the glistening newborns tailstock, which apparently has a mind of its own, or rather a musculature of its own. The dolphin tailstock is the back half of the dolphins body that serves as the propeller that pushes the dolphin forward via up-and-down strokes (in contrast, fish and shark propellers move side-to-side). This biological propeller is fitted with an efficient muscular mechanism that conserves energy: A dolphin has to create the down stroke through muscular effort but the up stroke is accomplished with a springlike mechanism that bounces the tailstock up and ready for theFind snook at inlets in large concentrations Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wellerstein Photo by ANN WEAVERNewborn baby bottlenose dolphins like Jellys newborn typically pop up at the surface with their eyes closed, either snoozing or cringing against the sudden bright light above the sea. In contrast, mother keeps a close [open] eye on her baby.next down stroke. This mechanism was amusingly obvious as Sticks new baby jiggled clumsily to the surface. Perhaps the down stroke is instinctive because the newborn surfaced alongside Sticks measured strokes with fair success. But the newborn was clearly thrown off, literally, by the up stroke. Every time it surfaced at Sticks side, its miniature tailstock seemed to bounce up without restraint, pitching the tiny shiny baby forward uncontrollably into a headlong smash landing on its chin, the fresh new tailstock trailing innocently behind in its best ready-for-thedown-stroke position. Sticks little nursery group included two other moms but also one of our local bull giants, Schnoz. For years, Schnoz gender was a mystery due in part to his habit of swimming with a group of mom dolphins with newborns like this. This is unusual bull behavior; bulls are usually seen with moms when the calf is older. The frustrating action was the other mom with a tiny shiny newborn. She was frustrating because, with a second larger dolphin nearby, she moved away from us so concertedly that we were only able to see her from behind. This meant that the vital dorsal fin pattern we use to identify individual dolphins was never clearly visible. After a handful of such surfaces, we backed off to avoid harassing her. There are two possibilities as to the identity of the new mom, but a Hitchcocklike suspense continues until that part of the movie unfolds. There were two other little dramas with our slightly older calves of the season. One drama was striking. Front Slashs 6-week-old baby was busy with behavior associated with the tail stage. The tail stage is characterized by a tiny dolphin that has acquired a modicum of control over its tail and fluke movements and is now better able to move smoothly between water and air for breathing. But the baby in the tail stage is now subject to sudden accelerations; as if its propeller operates at will, abruptly thrusting the little one forward from moms side in an uncontrolled spurt that sometimes pitches the baby into a headstand or forward somersault! The other drama was melodramatic. It involved first-time mom Sharkeys calf. Born by the Memorial Day weekend, it is our oldest local calf. Now that it is 3 months old, it is old enough to get a name. But it was far too young and unlearned to be embroiled in an enthusiastic but disorderly social exchange between three teens and big bull Xiphos. This exchange was so vigorous that all you saw with lots of splashing, punctuated by tauntingly sporadic glimpses of a tiny baby, which we finally figured out was Sharkeys calf. Sharkey haunted the sidelines, as many moms do when their baby is caught up with other dolphins. Ultimately, we glimpsed Sharkey swimming away with her baby while the wild splashing continued. The suspense about whether the calf is OK continues until that part of the movie unfolds. Life at sea play does not play out for our benefit, but knowing the stages of growth and development in young lives and the entire dolphin community is ecologically essential.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Tampa Bay Watch is honored to receive this generous support from the Coca-Cola Foundation, said Peter Clark in a press release. Clark is Tampa Bay Watch president. Especially for such an important, high-impact project. The goal of the project at McKay Bay is to establish a communitybased oyster creation project that will construct approximately 2,900 linear feet of new oyster shell communities on the northern shoreline of McKay Bay. McKay Bay is an ecologically important estuary located in the heart of a heavily industrialized area in the city of Tampa that has suffered from many years of impacts from dredge and fill construction, urban and industrial runoff and dredged material disposal. Through the creation of 2,900 linear feet of new oyster communities on the northern shoreline of McKay Bay, many new ecological benefits will occur. These benefits include improved water quality that will lead to the reintroduction of sea grasses in McKay Bay, increased water filtration capacity which will directly benefit the McKay Bay estuary and the new oyster reefs will provide habitat, foraging areas and sanctuary for various species of fish and wildlife that frequent coastal and estuarine shorelines. The CORE project at McKay Bay will have a measurable, positive impact on the health of McKay Bay and, ultimately, the Tampa Bay estuary. For us, water stewardship begins at home in our own facilities, where process improvements and technologies have allowed us to save more than 3 billion gallons of water since 2005, said Jeff Ortmeier, vice president of sales, Central Florida Market Unit, Coca-Cola Refreshments. Tampa Bay Watch is also committed to water stewardship. Their McKay Bay project joins more than 100 water stewardship initiatives that we support in North America. Community-based oyster projects are a cornerstone of Tampa Bay Watchs restoration programs. These projects encourage oyster growth through the construction and installation of oyster domes and oyster shell bars. Oyster shell reefs prevent erosion of bay islands and fragile coastlines and improve water quality through the natural biological filtration of living oysters. Natural water filters, oysters are also a food source for other bay inhabitants. Increasing oyster populations means a reduction in erosion and better overall water quality while restoring vital hard-bottom habitats in the bay. Tampa Bay Watch is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) stewardship program dedicated exclusively to the charitable and scientific purpose of protecting and restoring the marine and wetland environments of the Tampa Bay estuary encompassing over 400 square miles of open water and 2,300 square miles of highly-developed watershed. Tampa Bay Watch involves more than 10,000 youth and adult volunteers each year in hands on habitat restoration projects.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human hes encountered.

As the Beatles devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded; she was witness to the evolution advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges of the greatest band in history. In Good Ol Freda, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years. One of few films with the support of the living Beatles and featuring original Beatles music, the film offers an insider perspective on the beloved band that changed the music industry.SalingerGenre: Documentary Cast: Rgis Roinsard Philip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton, John Cusack, Danny DeVito, John Guare, Martin Sheen, David Milch, Robert Towne, Tom Wolfe, E.L. Doctorow, Gore Vidal, A. Scott Berg and Elizabeth Frank Director: Shane Salerno Rated: PG-13 For more than 50 years, J.D. Salinger, the elusive author of The Catcher in the Rye, has been the subject of a relentless stream of newspaper and magazine articles as well as several biographies. Yet all of these attempts have been hampered by lack of access and the recycling of inaccurate information. Thus, Salinger has largely remained an enigma to the public and media alike. During the nine years in which Salinger was in production including the six years while the project was being shot under wraps filmmaker Shane Salerno interviewed hundreds of people the world over, many of whom had previously declined to go on the record about their relationship with the iconic author. Salernos much speculated-upon documentary, which has made front page news since 2010, offers direct eyewitness accounts from Salingers World War II brothers-in-arms, his family members, his close friends, his lovers, his classmates, his neighbors, his editors, his publishers, his New Yorker colleagues, and people with whom he had relationships that were unknown even to his own family. Providing unparalleled access to never-before-published photographs, diaries, letters, legal records, and documents, the highly anticipated Salinger paints a definitive portrait of one of the most fascinating figures of the 20th century. Particularly illuminating the last 56 years of the writers life a period that, until now, had remained completely dark to biographers Salerno has, for the first time, gotten beyond Salingers meticulously built-up wall.PopulaireGenre: Comedy and drama Cast: Romain Duris, Dborah Franois, Brnice Bejo, Shaun Benson, Mlanie Bernier, Nicolas Bedos and Miou-Miou Director: Rgis Roinsard Rated: R Spring, 1958. Rose Pamphyle, a 21-year-old, lives with her grouchy widower father who runs the village store. Engaged to the son of the local mechanic, she seems destined for the quiet, drudgery-filled life of a housewife. But thats not the life Rose longs for. When she travels to Lisieux in Normandy, where charismatic insurance agency boss Louis Echard is advertising for a secretary, the ensuing interview is a disaster. But Rose reveals a special gift she can type at extraordinary speed. Unwittingly, the young woman awakens the dormant sports fan in Louis. If she wants the job shell have to compete in a speed typingMuseum host Happy Hour with the HistorianST. PETERSBURG For those wondering what would Ponce De Leon think of his La Florida 500 years after his arrival on the peninsula and the beginning of Spanish influence in Florida, the next installment of Happy Hour with the Historian will explore the subject. The lecture series will feature historian and author J. Michael Francis on Thursday, Sept. 5, at the St. Petersburg Museum of History, 335 Second Ave. NE. Francis will present Rethinking La Florida From Ponce De Leon to Jamestown. Doors will open at 6 p.m. for a happy hour cocktail meetand-greet with Francis. Admission is a $5 suggested donation. The event runs 6 to 8 p.m. and will feature a full cocktail bar, wine and beer. Admission includes viewing of the museum. Francis is the Hough Family Endowed Chair of the Florida Studies program at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge and received a fouryear appointment as a research fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and a research fellow at the Library of Congress. U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar appointed Francis as one of only two historians on the St. Augustine 450th Commemoration Commission. His teaching fields include colonial Latin America, Early Florida, Spanish Borderlands, the Pre-Columbian Americas and Spanish Paleography. Francis published Invading Colombia in 2008 by Penn State University Press. His most recent book, Murder and Martyrdom in Spanish Florida: Don Juan and the Guale Uprising of 1597, was published in 2011 by the American Museum of Natural History.

Whatever sacrifices Rose must make to reach the top, Louis declares himself her trainer. Hell turn her into the fastest girl not only in the country, but also in the world! But a love of sport doesnt always mix well with love itself.AdoreGenre: Drama Cast: Naomi Watts, Robin Wright, Xavier Samuel, James Frechevile and Ben Mendelsohn Director: Anne Fontaine Not rated Naomi Watts and Robin Wright deliver riveting performances in Adore, a sensual and provocative drama about two lifelong friends who find unexpected happiness in relationships that cross the bounds of convention. An unpredictable tale of misguided love and a heartfelt celebration of the enduring nature of female friendship, the film is the Englishspeaking directorial debut of distinguished filmmaker Anne Fontaine. It is adapted for the screen by Academy Award-winning writer Christopher Hampton, from a novella by Nobel Prize winner for Literature Doris Lessing.Touchy FeelyGenre: Comedy Cast: Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Josh Pais, Scoot McNairy, Ron Livingston and Tomo Nakayama Director: Lynn Shelton Rated: R Touch Feely is a closely observed examination of a family whose delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels. Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), is a sought after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine and convention, running a flagging dental practice and co-dependently enlisting the assistance of his emotionally stunted daughter Jenny (Ellen Page). Suddenly, transformation touches everyone. Abby develops an uncontrollable aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her occupation impossible but severely hinders the passionate love life between her and her boyfriend (Scoot McNairy). Meanwhile, rumors of Pauls healing touch begin to miraculously invigorate his practice as well as his life outside the office. As Abby navigates her way through a soul-searching identity crisis, her formerly skeptical brother discovers a whole new side of himself. Touch Feely is about the experience of living in ones own skin, both literally and figuratively. The film, written and directed by Shelton, and co-starring Allison Janney, Ron Livingston, and newcomer Tomo Nakayama (of the indie rock band Grand Hallway), is filmed on location in Sheltons hometown and urban muse of Seattle.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

8B Entertainment Leader, September 5, 2013 btn frnfrf fbbffrfn ffbbffrfn nbbffrfn b nbbfr tnb tt !fttfn 090513 Cage, Cusack spar in unexceptional serial killer drama The Frozen GroundMovie reviewNot every movie can be an Oscar contender. It also stands to reason that actors who have previously won Academy Awards cant wait around for the perfect script and another shot at critical acclaim. Nicholas Cage is a perfect example. Back in the 1990s, he scored Oscar gold with his performance in Leaving Las Vegas. In that era, he was amassing a huge list of award wins and nominations, for everything from Moonstruck to Adaptation. More recently, he has been less choosy about his films. A string of lackluster performances Season of the Witch, Drive Angry, Trespass, Seeking Justice and Stolen have damaged his once distinguished reputation. Personal problems broadcast and undoubtedly exaggerated by the tabloids have further tarnished the actors standing. Cage shows a glimpse of his enduring potential in Lionsgates new thriller The Frozen Ground. His performance is relatively minimalist, and the brooding, conscientious character he portrays Jack Halcombe suits his demeanor. In The Frozen Ground, Halcombe an Alaskan State Trooper is assigned a daunting case, tracking a serial killer who has virtually gone unnoticed for 13 years. When one of the killers victims manages to escape, she reports her abduction and rape to authorities. Due to her background as a runaway and prostitute, investigators initially discount her account. Eventually, the 17-year-old escapee Cindy Paulson, played capably by Disney alum Vanessa Hudgens provides enough details to Halcombe to allow him to start connecting the dots. John Cusack portrays the killer, Robert Hansen. Cusack gives a consistently chilling performance throughout, painting the murderer as a coldly sadistic predator. Cusacks Hansen is meticulous and manipulative outwardly reserved and retiring until cornered. This very adult role for Hudgens proves the High School Musical actress is serious about her career. Her depiction of Paulson is surprisingly multifaceted. She showcases the characters cynicism, underscores the tragedy of her past experiences and delivers some particularly unsettling moments in the backrooms of an Alaskan strip club. Whenever the film achieves a certain level of gritty realism, The Frozen Ground is actually difficult to watch. These solid performances unfortunately dont fully compensate for the films flaws. The Frozen Ground is based on a true story. Director Scott Walker spends too much time exhibiting the formulaic police procedural sequences that have become monotonously common on television crime dramas. He asks the audience to follow three separate story arcs but fails to fully develop any one of the central characters. He further fails to fully exploit the talent of the supporting cast, which includes 50 Cent as Clate Johnson, Katherine LaNasa as Fran Hansen, Dean Norris as Sgt. Lyle Haugsven and Jodi Lyn OKeefe as Chelle Ringell. Theres nothing particularly inspired or innovative about The Frozen Ground its filled with genre clichs, from bureaucratic bickering and ready-toretire heroes to moral certitude and a bulky textual epilogue. Walker tried to make a story based on actual events conform to the generic police procedural motif in this case, the square peg did not fit the round hole. There have been a number of exceptional films based on authentic serial killer cases, such as Monster and Citizen X. The Frozen Ground lacks the psychological depth of Monster, about real-life serial killer Aileen Wuornos. While Citizen X a made-for-TV film about Soviet serial killer Andrei Chikatilo spends a great deal of time examining bureaucratic hurdles and demoralizing procedural obstacles, it delivers a brilliant and thorough study of its central character, forensic specialist Viktor Burakov. Both Monster and Citizen X are masterpieces in this distinct crime drama subgenre dominated by sensationalistic and subpar filmmaking. Not every movie can be a masterpiece. The Frozen Ground isnt a complete failure, but it could have been much better. The subject matter is engrossing, and the acting is exceptional: It is arguably Cages best performance in years. The breakdown is all in the execution. The fine cast makes the film compelling and watchable. The unfocused script and failure to fully develop the characters make it regrettably unmemorable. The Frozen Ground was released theatrically Aug. 23 to a select few markets. To date, the film hasnt been featured at any Tampa Bay area locations. The Frozen Ground is currently available for rental viewing on Bright House On Demand, iTunes and Amazon Instant Video.

Better By You, Better Than Me, a song written by Wright, was also covered by Judas Priest on their 1978 album Stained Class. Wright has continued to produce and create records through the decades and you may have seen him recently in 2008 and 2010 touring with Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band.
