Though East Lake moved the ball at will, Largos defense made key plays at the beginning of the game. The Packers managed to hold the Eagles to only three points through the first two and a half quarters. The Packers suffered from injuries during the game, and two top players including running back Jarvis Stewart were suspended before kickoff. Eventually, the Eagles wore them down, putting up 19 more points. The game was Largos second of the season. The Packers claimed a decisive victory over Northeast on Aug. 30, winning 46-0. The Packers play Gibbs at home Thursday, Sept. 12, 7:30 p.m. The Eagles have yet to allow any points this season, shutting out Palm Harbor University 49-0 in their season opener. They play Dunedin at home this week. See ANNEXATIONS, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The public was mostly absent from the first hearing on Pinellas Countys fiscal year 2014 budget Sept. 5. Millage rates and budgets received tentative approval ahead of a final hearing on Tuesday, Sept. 17. Donna Henry, a retired schoolteacher on a fixed income, protested the increase in the countywide millage rate from 5.01 mills to 5.27. She said inflation, rising food costs, rising everything was creating a burden on a lot of people. The resident of unincorporated Pinellas also objected to the new stormwater fee that added $266 to her property tax bill. Im opposing such a large increase, she said. Shelby Harvey asked commissioners to just say no to the millage increase. She said the 3.4 percent increase in revenue from property values should be enough. Please just live on that as your budget thats plenty, she said. People in the private sector are not getting pay raises. Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala has recommended a 3 percent pay raise for county employees effective Oct. 1. Harvey said many residents had gone many years without a pay raise. She also pointed out that many were now working part time jobs and received no benefits. She said due to the increase in property values and the millage rate, many were seeing big increases on the property tax bill. It is way too much in one year, she said. The economy has not rebounded. According to a graphic shown by LaSala, the tax increase from the proposed millage rate on a home with a taxable value of $100,000 receiving a $50,000 homestead exemption would be $26.50. The millage rate increase is expected to generate an additional $14.1 million in revenue for fiscal year 2014. Commissioner Norm Roche made a motion to reduce the general fund tax increase to 5.14 mills. The motion died from a lack of a second. Roche also attempted to make a change in the Capital See BUDGET, page 4A By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously approved acceptance of a $600,000 federal grant Sept. 5 that will fund the hiring and support of navigators, who will assist residents with the new insurance coverage exchange. No matching funds are required. Open enrollment in the Affordable Acts Health Insurance Marketplace begins Oct. 1. Gwendolyn Warren, the countys executive director of Health and Human Services, requested that the commission accept the grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to be used with a cooperative agreement to support navigators in federally facilitated and state partnership exchanges. The $600,000 will be used to hire and train navigators and market their services to county residents through the soon-to-be created Pinellas County Health Coverage Exchange. Warren also asked approval to subcontract with the Florida Department of Health to recruit, hire, train and supervise health exchange navigators and volunteers for the countys exchange, which is a collaborative effort with the state DOH, the Juvenile Welfare Board, St. Petersburg College, St. Petersburg Free Clinic, Clearwater Free Clinic and Young Mens Christian Association. The county plans to hire up to 15 navigators to assist residents at 22 access points located throughout Pinellas. Navigators will be trained through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services program and will receive cultural and linguistic training from St. Petersburg College. Navigators will educate residents on available health plan options, assist with the selection of and enrollment in a chosen health plan and make sure the participant knows about options to change plans and available tax credits. Warren said an estimated 200,000 of the 921,319 people living in Pinellas County are uninsured. The one-year project targets individuals and families with incomes ranging between 0 and 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Warrens goal is to enroll at least 16,875 in a federal health plan during the project, which could save the county and local hospitals more than $19.2 million a year. Many of the people being targeted for enrollment currently receive health care through the countys plan for uninsured residents. Hospitals will save by having See GRANT, page 4A By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO To date, 342 properties along the border of Largo are benefiting from city services but have not been officially annexed into the city. Those properties most of them single-family homes could represent $500 to $700 in annual net revenue for the city. The property owners have signed agreements for annexation, and staff has determined that they are eligible to be added city tax rolls. But annexing properties takes time about 45 days to pass an ordinance through two public hearings, and only after the paperwork is all in order. The community development department has no staff person dedicated to processing the annexations, the task falling to the economic development manager, Teresa Brydon. Residents are signing new agreements all the time, most often so they can capitalize on garbage collection, which the city provides and the county doesnt. When commissioners requested a comprehensive count on potential annexations in March, there were 340 properties that were eligible for annexation and already had an agreement in place. Despite bringing 25 of these properties into the city since then, that count has remained almost unchanged. Community development staff asked the city commission for feedback and a clear policy on the annexation program Sept. 10, specifically requesting a citywide ability to serve report that would analyze the impact of annexations more thoroughly. When we talk about the net projected annual revenue that a city residence brings into the city upon annexation, this does not necessarily identify all of the costs that are associated with bringing the property under our jurisdiction, Brydon said. Impacts to the various city departments have not been thoroughly analyzed since the 2001 annexation impact study was conducted. That study, complied by a consultant, looked only at annexations east of U.S. 19. The commission did approve a staffgenerated citywide report on the issue in February 2010, but due to budget cuts, community development never had the staff time to dedicate to the project.

Leader, September 12, 2013Improvement budget change the way money was being appropriated to the affordable housing land assembly program over the next three years. He wanted to approve the funding for one year instead of three to allow consideration of repurposing the funds toward razing of dilapidated buildings. That motion also did not receive a second. By law, the commission is required to vote on each millage rate and budget separately. The vote was as follows: Approved 6-1 the tentative countywide millage of 5.27 mills, which represents an 8.29 percent increase in property taxes over the rolledback rate of 4.87, which is the amount needed to generate the same revenue as the previous year. Roche voted no. Approved 6-1 the tentative countywide budget of more than $1.649 billion, which includes $511 million for the general fund, $171 million for special revenue funds, $207 million for capital improvements, $193 million for internal services and nearly $567 million for enterprise funds. Roche voted no. Approved unanimously the tentative millage rate of 0.62 mills for the Pinellas County Health Department, which represents a 2.98 percent increase in property taxes over the rolled-back rate of 0.06 mills. Roche pointed out that the millage rate is a 0 percent change of the current year. Approved unanimously the tentative health department budget of $3.6 million. Approved unanimously the tentative millage rate of 0.91 mills for Emergency Medical Services, which represents a 3.07 percent increase over the rolled-back rate of 0.88, or as Roche noted a 0 percent change. Approved unanimously the tentative budget for EMS of $113 million. Approved unanimously the tentative millage rate for the Pinellas Planning Council of 0.016 mills, which represents a 32.23 percent increase over the rolled-back rate of 0.012 mills. Roche said the proposed rate was a 28 percent increase over the current year. The budget of $1.1 million also was approved. Approved unanimously the tentative millage rate of 2.08 mills for Municipal Services Taxing Unit, paid by residents living in unincorporated areas of the county. The rate, which is the same as the current year, represents a 2.55 percent increase from the rolled-back rate of 2.03 mills. Approved unanimously the tentative MSTU budget of nearly $59 million. Approved 6-1 the tentative millage rate for the Pinellas County Public Library Cooperative of 0.50 mills, which represents an 8.73 percent decrease over the rolled-back rate of 0.54 mills. Roche, who voted no, pointed out that the rate is in reality a12.69 percent increase over the current rate. Approved 6-1 the tentative budget for the library cooperative of nearly $4.4 million. Approved unanimously the tentative millage rate of 0.50 mills for Palm Harbor Community Services District, which represents a 1.92 percent increase over the rolled-back rate of 0.49 mills. The rate is the same as the current year. Unanimous approval also was given for the tentative budget of nearly $1.7 million. Approved unanimously the tentative millage rate of 0.50 mills for the Feathersound Community Services District, which represents a 4.12 percent increase over the rolled-back rate of 0.48 mills. The rate remains unchanged from the current year. The budget of $298,760 also was approved. Approved unanimously the tentative millage of 0.25 for the East Lake Library Services District, which is a new taxing district requested by East Lake residents. Approval also was given for the tentative budget of $555,470. Commissioners also unanimously approved tentative millage rates and budgets requested by 12 fire districts. Four of the 12 are changed from the current year. Residents in the Gandy Fire District have an increase of 1.6 percent and Safety Harbor Fire Districts millage rate is up 1.76 percent. The largest increase is for Pinellas Park Fire District with an increase of 27.4 percent. Thanks to a new contract for services, the millage rate in High Point Fire District is decreasing by 36.3 percent. Commissioners approved advertising for the final public hearing on the budget. That hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 17, 6 p.m., in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse, 315 Court St., Clearwater. For more information, visit www.pinellascounty.org/budget. Graphic courtesy of PINELLAS COUNTY COMMUNICATIONSThe proposed increase in the countywide millage rate on a home with a taxable value of $100,000 receiving a $50,000 homestead exemption costs an additional $26.50 in taxes. The millage rate increase is expected to generate an additional $14.1 million in revenue for fiscal year 2014. BUDGET, from page 1Afewer unpaid bills because more of the countys population will be insured. Currently, the state estimates the cost of providing health care for the uninsured and indigent in Pinellas County at $2 billion a year. Warren said county residents could enroll in the new federal insurance exchange on their own, but as with any new government program, they could have problems, which is what officials hope to avoid by using the navigators. This is a group of people who may not have had insurance before, she said. At least one commissioner asked about the lack of radio ads in Warrens marketing budget of $25,125. Franco Ripple, director of Public Affairs and Producer/Host at CBS Radio Tampa Bay, not only objected to the lack of radio advertising in the budget, but also commented on the small percentage of the budget being spent on marketing. He suggested eliminating some of the full time employees and increasing the marketing budget for all types of media. Warren explained that for the first phase of enrollment, the effort would be more about informing residents already in the system and assisting them with getting signed up for the federal program. She was leery of a big push to inform the masses without having a staff in place to help them understand the process. Our clients are largely uninsured, County Administrator Bob LaSala said of the residents currently receiving services through Health and Human Services. We already have this captive audience we can enroll. Warren pointed out that having only 15 people to help more than 16,000 applicants would be challenging. This staff is small given the task, she said. Resident Regina Brown, who was speaking for herself and four others, said she was not in favor of accepting the grant for Obamacare. She asked if staff would be liable if mistakes were made during the enrollment process. Warren told the commission that since the state was doing the hiring, the state would carry the liability. Brown also said the countys project seemed to go against the states wishes. Lawmakers have refused to expand the states eligibility for Medicaid. Commission Chair Ken Welch said the state had reversed its position on the Affordable Health Care Act and those currently enrolled for Medicaid are eligible. Regardless of the states position, Affordable Health Care Act is a federal program and Pinellas County citizens are eligible to participate, he said. Browns main objection seemed to target Obamacare. She said there were too many unanswered questions. Obamacare plans are not finalized, she said. She added that the grant was a way to sell bad ideas to good people. Were not going to fight Obamacare at 315 Court Street, Welch said. I fully support this and hope the board approves it. Big ideas take bold action and leadership, said Commissioner Janet Long, who admitted that the program likely would need tweaks to improve it as it was implemented. None of us can afford the enormous cost of the uninsured, she said. Im extremely supportive because it will help our citizens.

Commissioner Woody Brown suggested the city terminate annexation agreements for properties far outside current city boundaries, particularly those in Feather Sound. I dont think its ever a possibility that were annexing those properties in Feather Sound, he said. Community Development Director Carol Stricklin said her staff would bring back a proposal to make changes to future annexation agreements as well as a strategy for streamlining the annexation process and bringing the 342 eligible properties into the city. She said she also would like to bring specifics on the potential cost and scope of a consultant who would prepare a citywide ability to serve report. The commissioners agreed to her suggestion. The issue will be discussed again at a future commisBeyond the 342 properties eligible for annexation, the city has the same agreement with the owners of 700 other properties that dont immediately qualify for annexation because they are not continuous with existing city boundaries. Along with garbage pickup, these property owners enjoy a 25 percent discount on sewer rate and perks as Largo residents, such as use of the citys recreational facilities. Of the 700 additional agreements, 44 properties are within a type A enclave, an unincorporated area boxed in on all sides by incorporated properties, essentially a hole in the city of Largos map. The city expects an agreement with the county to make those properties eligible for annexation by the end of the year. Additionally, the city has 44 sewer indentures, encompassing a total of 280 parcels, in which the city provided access to its sewer system. Residents with those agreements pay 25 percent extra for use of the sewer system and benefit from no other city services. Commission Curtis Holmes first asked if the city was confident it was making money off of those properties that are annexed. The city gains additional revenue from property taxes, franchise fees, utility taxes, telecommunication taxes, stormwater fees and solid waste fees associated with the property. Taking into account the citys loss of fire district fees and the higher sewer rate, an average single-family residence would still bring in $500-$700 in net annual revenue. But that doesnt account for the cost of providing city services to the new residents. Holmes contended that a consultant wasnt needed for the city to calculate the costs, department by department. Commissioner Michael Smith asked if it wouldnt help the community development department if they stopped taking in new annexation agreements until they caught up. But the goal is to annex a group of adjoining properties together, as they can come into the city within the same ordinance, thus streamlining the process, explained City Attorney Alan Zimmet. If the city just concentrated on the 342 eligible annexations it had and annexed 10 a month, it would still take a few years to get through the backlog, he said. Plus, given that accepting the agreement was the easy part of the process for staff, the city did not want to discourage the accumulation of new agreements, any of which could provide a better grouping for future ordinances, Brydon said. Mayor Pat Gerard asked for guidance from staff on what they could and prefer to do. Sure, we want to have those people who want to be part of the city, but we cant tell you how quickly we want you to do that, without saying, Heres a staff person to focus on doing just that, she said. Zimmet said staff could come up with a strategy and a schedule for the 342 properties, taking into account that some properties would be less cost effective to annex than others. Several of the eligible properties are within two of the countys Community Development Block Grant areas, such as the Ridgecrest neighborhood, or five Healthy Community areas, such as Highpoint, Brydon explained. The county has committed federal funds for programs in those areas. Are we ready to absorb those individuals, with the ramifications of now our housing department is responsible for assisting them in some of the goals and objectives that the county had outlined under their CDGB? Brydon asked. Other properties could be avoided as a way of evading a potential conflict with the county, Gerard pointed out. The city is concentrating on properties within the Largo Planning Service Area, a boundary broader than city limits that was established in an interlocal agreement with the county from October 2000 to September 2010. Though that area is no longer valid, the city does have agreements in place with neighboring cities, establishing rules on specific, previously contended boundaries. The city has the ability to terminate annexation agreements if it so chooses, saving money on providing services to those properties, Zimmet said. He suggested that future annexation agreements could not include the 25-percent discount on sewer rates unless the property was contiguous. If we stop anything, I think maybe we stop offering those services to annexation agreements that ANNEXATIONS, from page 1A Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

County commission concerned about flood insurance changesAbout NFIP and BW-12U.S. Congress established NFIP in 1968 because insurance companies were excluding flood damage from homeowners insurance. The program allowed property owners in communities that adopted floodplain management ordinances and minimum standards in new construction to purchase flood insurance through NFIP. Owners of existing homes and businesses did not have to rebuild to higher standards, and many received subsidized rates that did not reflect their true risk. Costs of flooding have continued to increase since 1968. Claims following Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy make it clear that NFIP was not sustainable without an increase in rates that reflects true risks and costs. FEMA says that currently Tranquil twilightinformation presented in a recent public forum on the matter had shown that Florida was the No. 1 recipient of the changes. Theres not a lot of time to take action, she said. The first phase of the laws implementation began Jan. 1. A second phase, involving a much larger group of properties, begins Oct. 1. Its unbelievable how many people dont have a clue (the change is coming), Long said. LaSala said the Communication Department was part of the group working on the issue. We want to make sure were not yelling fire in a crowded theater, he said. He said Congressman Bill Young and others were working on trying to get officials to hit the pause button until more is learned about the effect of the new law. Commission Chair Ken Welch suggested that the commission write a letter in support of Young and send a copy to the states senators. Commissioner Susan Latvala pointed out that law didnt just affect the beaches. Its all waterfront property, she said. By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas County officials are deeply concerned about the effect changes in federal law governing flood insurance could have on local residents and businesses. County Administrator Bob LaSala told commissioners Sept. 5 that county employees were combining their expertise in a number of areas to learn all they could about the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agencys website, www.fema.gov, BW-12, requires FEMA and other agencies to change how the National Flood Insurance Program is administered to make it more sustainable. Key provisions of the legislation will require the NFIP to raise rates to reflect the true flood risk, make the program more financially stable and change how Flood Insurance Rate Map updates impact policyholders, the website says. Bottom line, the changes will result in insurance premium increases for many homeowners and businesses living in floodprone areas, including waterfront and beachfront properties in Pinellas County. I consider this a high priority, LaSala said. He said changes in the law were more complicated and technical than anticipated. He said it would take staff some time to prepare a presentation.

Of the 20 percent that do, about 25 percent will be charged higher premiums starting this year. Rates will increase annually until they are full-risk premiums. FEMA also says that 5 percent of policyholders with subsidized policies for non-primary residences, businesses and severe repetitive loss properties will experience rate hikes of 25 percent immediately. Subsidies will no longer be offered on policies for newly purchased properties, lapsed policies or new policies covering properties for the first time. All policyholders, subsidized or not, will pay more for flood insurance as NFIP increases its reserve fund, as required by the new law. In addition, FEMA says remapping of communities, a task scheduled to begin in 2014, could result in premium changes for all policyholders. Full risk rates will be phased in for all policyholders over five years at a rate of 20 percent a year, and subsidies and discounts will no longer be available.

INSURANCE, from page 5AChanges coming to Memorial Causeway because of fatal crash By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER There will soon be designated bicycle lanes on both sides of the Memorial Causeway between Clearwater and the beach as the result of a fatal hit and run accident on Labor Day. Rob Lemon, 25, of Largo was killed when a vehicle struck him shortly after 6 a.m. that day. His girlfriend, Hilary Michalak, 27, remains in critical condition at the Bayfront Medical Center as a result of injuries she received in the same accident. The two were riding a tandem bike on the Causeway when they were struck. Kris Carson of the Florida Department of Transport said the bike lanes will be designated on paved shoulders, which are already in place. The paved shoulders are out there, she said. Now it is a matter of adding the symbols to let motorists know that the bikes have a right to be there and to be cautious. When asked if adding the bicycle symbols are a direct result of the fatal hit and run Carson replied, Definitely. Carson said FDOT is undertaking a statewide campaign to add and designate bicycle lanes wherever possible. We have a campaign, Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow to draw attention to safety because there are too many bicycle and pedestrian fatalities all across the state, she said. The victims of the hit and run were no strangers to bicycle safety. Lemon worked at a local bike shop and according to friends, always rode his bike to work. Michalak moved to the area from Michigan a year ago. Her family is by her side at Bayfront. She is the Director of Youth and Families at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Seminole. Pastor Pam Wellons said they were honoring the familys request for privacy and didnt have much to say about the situation. We are praying for her, Wellons said. Were praying for her and her family. That is about all I can say. Attempts to reach her family at Bayfront were unsuccessful. In the Pinellas County Jail is 29-year-old Christopher Weed of Dunedin. He is being held on two felony charges: leaving the scene of an accident causing death and leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury. Weed works at a hotel on Clearwater Beach. His 1997 Nissan pickup truck was seen in the roundabout shortly after the victims tandem bike had been there. Clearwater police say an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers indicated that Weed might have been involved in the fatal crash, and detectives found his truck in his mothers backyard in Dunedin with the windshield missing and damage to the front end. Weed told investigators that he passed out and didnt know what happened. He came forward on his own to say his truck was involved, but he didnt say he was responsible, said Rob Shaw, the Clearwater Police public information officer. Shaw said the police are confident they have arrested the right man. This is a horrible tragedy and were happy to have gotten the person and have him where he needs to be, Shaw said. Area roadways are no strangers to tragedies. DOTs Carson says the Tampa Bay area accidents are twice the national average for bicycle and pedestrian fatalities. Despite the fact that there is a bicycle trail running parallel along the Causeway, Carson says many cyclists would prefer to use the paved shoulder. Cyclists who like to go faster want to avoid the walkers and joggers who regularly use the trail. They would prefer to use the roadway, she said. She said the bike lanes on the Causeway should be designated before the end of the year.At left, Christopher Weed, 29, of Dunedin has been charged in connection with a fatal hit and run accident on the Memorial Causeway on Labor Day. Above, Memorial Causeway near where two cyclists were struck. DOT will be designating the paved shoulders as bicycle lanes soon.

Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies were called to Pelican International, 6140 Ulmerton Road in Largo, where they found Sergio Alvarez, 45, trapped between the sheets of quartz and another pallet. According to deputies, Alvarez was unloading several pallets of quartz being delivered to Pelican International. The pallets were up on their side. As he released one of the pallets to unload it, the supports broke. Deputies said the approximately 10 sheets of quartz contained in the pallet fell on him and pinned him between the sheets and another pallet. Deputies said that each sheet weighs approximately 1,000 pounds for a total of 10,000 pounds. Firefighters from various agencies responded to extricate the man. The process took about 30 to 45 minutes. Alvarez was subsequently transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries. Deputies initially responded to assist with the landing zone for the helicopter and are investigating the incident. At this time, deputies said it appears to be accidental in nature.Boy nearly drowns during partyPINELLAS PARK Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies and Lealman Fire Rescue were called to a private residence in Pinellas Park about 2:41 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, when a 5-year-old boy was found unmoving in a swimming pool. According to deputies, the victim was at a birthday party with about 30 to 40 people, including some who had been swimming outside in the pool. Another child noticed the victim in the pool, not moving. The victim then was taken out of the pool and someone called 911. Lealman Fire Rescue arrived on scene and was able to revive the victim. The victim, Cashus Pashaun Elias, was transported to a local hospital via ambulance with life-threatening injuries. The near drowning does appear to be accidental and no charges are pending.Pedestrian dies after being hitST. PETERSBURG A St. Petersburg woman died at a local hospital after she was hit by a car about 9:54 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, on U.S. 19 south of 50th Avenue North in St. Petersburg. Amy Melissa Peachy, 27, was attempting to walk westbound across U.S. 19 when she failed to yield the right of way to a 1992 Ford Mustang driven by Nathaniel Allen Eanes, 26, of Pinellas Park, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The front of the mustang then collided with Peachy. She was transported to Northside Hospital in St. Petersburg where she later died. Results of an alcohol test for Peachy are pending. Charges are pending.Suspect arrested in bank robberyDUNEDIN Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives arrested a St. Petersburg woman in connection with the Sept. 5 robbery of the BB&T Bank, 1478 Main St., Dunedin. Renita Mount Rayner, 52, was charged with one count of unarmed robbery. According to detectives with the Robbery/Homicide Unit, Rayner entered the BB&T bank at approximately 9:45 a.m. She handed a note to a bank employee, demanding money and implying she had a gun. She told the employee if she was given what she wanted, no one would be hurt. The employee complied and Rayner left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was hurt. Citizens in the area found evidence that was disposed of nearby and provided it to detectives. This information assisted in the identification of Rayner. With the assistance of undercover detectives from the St. Petersburg Police Department, Rayner was located and held until Sheriffs detectives arrived. Rayner was found shopping at a Save-A-Lot store located at Ninth Street and Seventh Avenue N. in St. Petersburg.PCSO seeks shoplifting suspectCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are asking for help to identify a shoplifting suspect who stole from a department store in Clearwater July 23.

Normally, if a woman fails to get pregnant after several cycles of in vitro fertilization, doctors do not have any techniques left to offer them other than using donor eggs, donor sperm or both. For many families, they have their hearts set on using their own sperm and eggs. The new, free THRIVE-IFV study could make that happen. Doctor Edward Zbella, medical director for The Florida Fertility Institute in Clearwater, is administering one of the 20 study sites at his office. He said the study is for women who have had three unsuccessful attempts at in vitro fertilization, at least two of those being fresh cycles and, at most, one of those three being a frozen cycle, yet theyve had good eggs and embryos. This study is looking at an immunogenetic agent to give to those women, in hopes that it would improve their chances of getting pregnant, Zbella said. And the thought is that these women, they have something going on within their uterus that basically is attacking the embryos. So macrophages. And by taking this research agent or medication it changes that and hopefully increases their chance of conception. Other inclusion criteria are that the women must be younger than 38, produced good quality eggs and at least two good quality embryos that are classified as grade A. They must have gone through three transfers of embryos with good quality embryos, with none of those resulting in a live born baby, Zbella said. The advantage of qualifying (to participate in the study) is that, one, we have something different to offer them for IVF, Zbella said. And two, the cost of the program the entire IVF cycle, is going to be covered by the participating pharmaceutical company.The facts about infertilityThere are many reasons someone may struggle with infertility, Zbella said. But in general, half of the fertility issues are on the male side, so some kind of trouble with the sperm. Most likely in this case, it is a low sperm count. The other half of the cases involves an issue on the female side. The most common reason a woman is not conceiving is that shes not ovulating, Zbella said. So she has very irregular cycles. And usually thats the easiest to solve and the easiest to evaluate. So those women have some hormonal tests done, and depending on those results, they typically go on fertility pills or fertility injections. If they have regular cycles, then the basic workup includes hormone testing, semen analysis, and then an X-ray called a hysterosalpingogram. And that X-ray determines whether their uterus is normal and whether their fallopian tubes are open. The results of those tests help determine the treatment of the patient. However, by the time Zbella sees them, usually they have already had all of those tests, and they come in with more advanced issues. Perhaps they have had a history of severe endometriosis, which may have caused scarring on the fallopian tubes. Perhaps the man has had a vasectomy reversal but his sperm count is still low. Other more serious problems on the female side include blocked tubes due to infection, damage from prior surgeries or a previous tubal ligation, Zbella said. And then another large group is unexplained infertility, Zbella said. Meaning, theyve been tested for all types of fertility factors, and nothing has come up. So theres no apparent reason why theyre not getting pregnant. And a lot of times, those are the ones we do in vitro on. And a lot of times they may be unsuccessful because they may have some underlying immune issue that we cant identify. And thats why this study may be important to them. The first successful IVF pregnancy was in 1978 in England, and the first successful one in the United States was in 1981, Zbella said. The procedure stimulates the ovaries using fertility injections so they produce several eggs, he said. Doctors monitor the development of the eggs using ultrasounds and a blood test called estradiol. When the eggs appear mature, the patient is brought into the office to extract the eggs. Theyre sedated, an ultrasound is then used to place a needle through the back of the vagina into the ovaries, Zbella said. The eggs are aspirated out. The procedure typically takes 10 minutes. The eggs are then fertilized in a Petri dish with the partners sperm. We would expect 70 percent of those matured eggs to fertilize. And then, in our program, three days after we retrieve the eggs, we would place the embryo or embryos back inside the uterus. And thats dependent on the age of the patient and the quality of the embryos, which determines the number of embryos that we put back. For younger women under age 35, doctors would place one or two embryos back so they would not need to worry about having three or more babies at once. For older women, they may replace an additional embryo. Any extra embryos after the transfer can be frozen. That way, if the patient does not get pregnant in that round, they can thaw the embryos to use instead of having the patient go through all of the injections and the whole cycle again. Or, if the couple does get pregnant and want an additional child a few years later, they could use the frozen embryos at that time, Zbella said. Many times it is unknown why someone suffers from infertility, but there are risk factors that can contribute to its likelihood. For instance, being overweight or obese could cause someone to have irregular periods, because as women gain weight, it affects their hypothalamus, which affects their pituitary gland, Zbella said. This affects their ovulation cycle, resulting in difficulties in getting pregnant. Tubal problems sometimes can be attributed to having a history of gonorrhea, chlamydia or prior abdominal surgeries, he added.The ticking clockThere are many misconceptions about how long a woman is able to get pregnant, Zbella said. He said that women often feel they can get pregnant until theyre 50 or for as long as they are still having their period regularly. Thats a misconception, Zbella said. And the reason for that is their A-quality (eggs) have diminished so that those eggs dont fertilize. Or if they do fertilize, they dont result in a pregnancy because those embryos are typically genetically abnormal. It doesnt help that many celebrities are seen having babies in their 40s and 50s, and many of Zbellas patients point to them as proof that they, too, can get pregnant at an older age. What I say to them is look at what they had, Zbella said. Many have twins, and the reason they have twins is that they used donor eggs. Eggs from a younger woman that they fertilize and that the movie star carried. But thats not mentioned in the stories on the birth of these children. So a lot of laypeople feel that they can conceive just like the movie stars. When a girl is born, she already has all the eggs she will ever have. By the time she reaches puberty, it is estimated that she has about 300,000 eggs, Zbella said. Each month, about 1,000 eggs start to process toward maturation. However, at the end of that month, only one egg matures and ovulates, and that is the egg that could result in conception. The other 999 eggs die. So basically, women use up their best quality eggs when theyre young, and when they get older, that A-quality diminishes, Zbella said. Therefore, Zbella said that most reproductive endocrinologists say that up until age 35, the average woman has a good chance of conception. But after that, the ovarian reserve starts to diminish. Typically, age 43 is the last year Zbella said his office can usually get someone pregnant using their own eggs. The success of a normal IVF process without being a part of this study depends on each womans situation, Zbella said. What is this study about?Infertility treatment can be relatively inexpensive if all one needs is fertility pills the initial tests are either covered by insurance or else cost maybe $100, Zbella said. If fertility pills are needed, those cost maybe about $25 a month, he said. However, then things start to get more expensive. If the woman had previously had her tubes tied, a tubal reversal costs around $5,000, he said. But by far, IVF is the most expensive procedure, which is about $12,000 each time. Therefore, an additional and big benefit for participating in the study is getting the IVF for free. And keep in mind, if youve done this three times and have not been successful, no matter what someone offers you (otherwise,) its really a roll of the dice, Zbella said. So the problem is, up until this study, there was not anything else to offer these women. And on top of it, for those women, theres no cost to participate in the study. The women in the study will be given a medication by injection they will be trained how to give these to themselves, similar to an insulin shot. This agent medication has never been used for IVF, Zbella said, which is why this offers an advantage and uniqueness. What its doing is having an affect on the immune system within the uterus itself, Zbella said. Basically its saying to the uterus that were going to decrease the rejection of the foreign tissues, i.e. the embryo. And it does that by increasing neutrofils and increases stem cells and it probably has some unknown effects. This drug may increase pregnancy rates for all women, Zbella said. But they are taking the most difficult group of women those who have already failed to have a baby through three or more IVF cycles with good quality embryos and seeing if this helps increase pregnancy rates. This will be a double-blinded study, meaning the patient will not know if they are getting the actual drug or a placebo. Likewise, the doctors, like Zbella, will not know which the patient is getting, either, until the study is complete. At the end, professionals will look at the two groups out of the 120 total participants, and see if one group had more pregnancies than the other. A Phase I safety study has already been conducted, and now the study is in Phase II. Observations have shown that this drug increases ones white blood cell count, Zbella said. The patients are monitored to make sure that this level starts to decrease after the initial spike. In this case, its thought that the nutrofils will have a positive affect on any of the immunosuppressant problems (that may be preventing a pregnancy,) Zbella said. It will override that and may help with the implantation of the embryos and may stimulate stem cells, which may have the same type of benefit. A crude example to help explain this, he said, is to imagine taking a kidney and placing it in ones spouse. In all likelihood, the partner would reject the kidney because the tissue types are different. We give patients immunosuppressant agents when we do kidney transplants, even when the tissue type is very, very similar, because the chance of rejection is so high, Zbella said. When a woman becomes pregnant, the resulting embryo is a combination of her tissue type and her partners tissue type. And so when that embryo enters the uterus, whether its naturally or through in vitro fertilization, in theory, it should not implant. The uterus should reject that embryo HealthSouth celebrates National Rehabilitation WeekLARGO HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Largo will join rehabilitation providers across the nation Sept. 15-21, in celebration of National Rehabilitation Week. During National Rehabilitation Week, HealthSouth hospitals provide the roadmap to recovery for patients overcoming challenges after an illness or injury. True stories of inspiration are made possible through HealthSouth Largos dedicated team approach to patient care, offering personalized programs and advanced technologies.

Tripp is HealthSouth Largo CEO. National Rehabilitation Week provides a great opportunity for our hospital to honor how much each of our patients have accomplished since their injury or illness. We invite the community to join in our celebrations and to learn of the successes that rehabilitation brings to patients at our hospital every day.

And the reason for that is there are blocking antibodies that prevent the immune system from recognizing that tissue and allowing it to not be attacked by the immune system. The uterus has its own immunosuppressant factors and its own macrophages, Zbella said. While in normal circumstances, an embryo is not rejected, obviously there are some women that even with good quality embryos, they cannot get pregnant. The doctors involved in the study wonder if this is because of factors in the immune system. If so, they hope that this new drug can help override the system and allow embryo implantation to occur. The Florida Fertility Institute is one of a number of clinics in the nation to participate in this study. So far, Zbella has several women in the study, including one from Melbourne, one from Orlando, and a few from his practice. So far, one of those patients is pregnant with twins. He does not know if she was one of those given the actual drug, but he is hopeful, because if this works, it could make a huge difference for so many women.Whats next?Gradually, women across the country will be added to this study, and any resulting pregnancies will be monitored. It will probably take about a year to fully recruit patients, then another year to await the outcome of the pregnancies and analyze the data, Zbella said. If it seems the drug was successful, then it will be presented to the FDA. At that point, the FDA may want another study, or it could say this study was enough, he said. Then, the sponsoring pharmaceutical company NORA Therapeutics will apply for a new drug application, get screened, and all the studies that have been done will get analyzed by a committee with the FDA, Zbella said. If all goes well, it would get approved. Though even if everything goes perfectly, it probably is at least three years before this drug would make it to the market. If women think they may qualify and are interested in participating in the study, they can call the Womens Medical Research Group at 724-9730 or the Florida Fertility Institute at 796-7705.

His furry pal Bart was rescued when he was 9.5-months old and is now 2 years old. Sadly, he was purchased from Craigslist from someone trying to make a quick buck, and when his new family received him, he was in very poor health. Bart almost didnt survive, but now he is doing amazingly well.

This also may include some facial structures around the oral cavity. In the state of Florida, as written in the Florida Statutes, veterinary medicine includes, with respect to animals, surgery, acupuncture, obstetrics, dentistry, physical therapy, radiology, theriogenology (reproduction), and other branches or specialties of veterinary medicine. Dentistry is included in the above definition of veterinary medicine. This means that anyone doing dental procedures with specific dental instruments and/or ultrasonic scalers on an animal, who requires payment for these services, is practicing veterinary dentistry. Anesthesia or anesthesia-free dental work must be done under the supervision of a veterinarian, just as dental hygienists only clean teeth under the supervision of a dentist. In order to do a thorough job of evaluating the oral cavity, a probe is needed to check for pockets around each individual tooth, and x-rays need to be taken to look for problems under the gum line. No one, not even your veterinarian, can see all these problems by just looking in the mouth in a conscious dog or cat. Anesthesia-free dental cleanings only provide a false sense of proper dental care and treatment because the teeth look cleaner. These types of cleanings do not address the pathology, pain, or the infection that is occurring in the mouth and spreading throughout the entire body. Dental infections need to be treated with antibiotics, and their underlying cause must be addressed. Many of our companion animals will not tolerate ear cleanings and/or nail trims, let alone cleaning and probing inside their mouth when they are fully awake. Forcing animals to remain calm while being restrained for an anesthesia free-dental procedure is not only dangerous for the animal but can also be dangerous to the person performing this procedure. This is a very stressful situation to be in. Ultrasonic scalers get very hot to the touch and can destroy enamel if not used properly. In order to cool the dental scaler tip during a teeth cleaning, water needs to be constantly spraying from the scaler. Aspiration pneumonia may result if a dog or cat is not intubated while this water, bacteria, and tartar are being dispersed throughout the oral cavity. Anesthesia is very safe for healthy companion animals. Prior to any anesthetic procedure, your veterinarian should perform a thorough physical exam and blood work to determine if your dog or cat is a healthy candidate. Postponing proper dental care for whiter teeth at a minimal fee could prove more costly and problematic down the road. Proper home dental care products and instructions can be provided to you by your veterinary health care team. Their goal is to do what is in the best interest of your companion animal.

Viewpoints 11A Leader, September 12, 2013Fm: Commanding Officer, Earth Invasion Spy Team. To: Headquarters of Planet T55-B, Constellation 23 Skiddoo Subject: How to capture Planet Earth. TEXT FOLLOWS: After a six-month visit to Planet Earth by our undercover Spy Team, we believe we have found a simple, effective means to cripple or disarm the Earthlings a short time before Planet T55-B forces land on Earth to conquer it. Our suggested method: Remove all balls from the Earth. During our intense spy research, our team discovered that billions of Earthlings are afflicted by forms of madness based on the worship of balls. Following is a brief description of several of these ball-centered obsessions. GOLF. Vast areas of prime real estate have been set aside and divided into nine or 18 segments. At the end of each segment is a small hole, or cup. Each week, hordes of Earthlings armed with expensive clubs savagely attack small white balls and attempt to direct the balls into the cups by using the smallest number of strokes. BASEBALL. This pursuit occurs primarily in nations of the upper Western Hemisphere. There, large cities some of them afflicted by gross poverty have built luxurious stadiums where nine-member groups of players center their attention on a stitched, leather-covered ball. The players throw the ball in various directions, or violently strike at the ball with wooden sticks, and then run wildly to reach canvas-covered bags of sand called bases. Meanwhile, spectators cheer, curse, hurl insults and consume huge quantities of overpriced, ill-prepared food, as well as beer, a liquid that often causes delusions and destructive behavior. FOOTBALL. Two opposing teams, in heavily padded uniforms, attempt to gain possession of an elongated ball known as a pigskin. Each advances it toward a goal line by throwing, kicking or carrying the pigskin. Opposing players bodily assault the team holding the pigskin. Lifelong injuries often occur. On the sidelines, young women in skimpy skirts dance, cheer and shout code words such as You can win, Winsockee! and Go, you Gators! BASKETBALL. At opposite ends of a large room, two metal rings, or hoops, are suspended 10 feet above a wooden floor. Beneath each ring is an open-ended net that slows the descent of a large leather ball after it has been inserted into the hoop by any of the players. Each team has five players on the floor at one time. Most of the players are about 8 feet tall. Each team has a head coach who stands on the sideline, screaming advice and obscenities. Victory is attained by stuffing the ball through the hoop more often than the opposing team does. The losing team shuffles back to a locker room, and for a short time considers suicide. (In basketball, as with other sports, Earthlings tend to despise losers.) TENNIS. Two players face each other on opposite sides of a net stretched in the middle of the combat zone. Using oval-shaped weapons (rackets), the players strike at a small ball and try to propel it so that it eludes an opponents ability to whack the ball back across the net. Victory goes to the player who successfully returns the ball more often than his/her opponent. Some players grunt loudly with each whack at the ball. Children are employed to scamper after loose balls in the combat zone. Players occasionally berate a sideline official who decides if and when a ball is playable. SOCCER. In this sport, players pursue a medium-sized ball on a large field surrounded by a hundred thousand homicidal supporters of the two teams. Players are permitted to kick the ball or butt it with their heads. The object of the game is to put the ball into the opponents net. Although the sport requires enormous skill and stamina, a score seldom occurs, usually by accident or dumb luck. After major soccer matches, spectators try to kill each other before burning down the stadium. A common feature of several of these activities is the payment of extravagant sums of money to the participants. Most of the money comes from unimaginative TV advertisements by companies that produce beer, automobiles, fattening food and insurance coverage. By destroying all the balls on Earth, our forces will cause Earthlings to become confused, heartbroken and bereft of any reason to go on. With no balls to play with, Earthlings will find little meaning in their lives. The next step in our plan to conquer Earth is to eliminate all of the planets abilities to produce balls of any kind. We will do this by launching cyber attacks on the ball manufacturers. The attacks will cause any future products to be shaped like cubes, not balls. Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net. In 2007, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led a congressional visit to Damascus, where she met with Syrian President Bashar Assad. We came in friendship, hope, and determined that the road to Damascus is a road to peace, Pelosi famously proclaimed. She met with Assad in defiance of then-President George W. Bush and his efforts to isolate Syria for its role as a state sponsor of terror. Now Pelosi supports the use of military force against Damascus. I asked Pelosi as she visited the high-tech firm Square in San Francisco on Wednesday: What changed since her famous proclamation? Since then, this regime has used chemical weapons on its people, Pelosi responded. Opposition to chemical weapons is a pillar of U.S. society, she said. U.S. intelligence officials report that they assess with high confidence that the Syrian government carried out the chemical weapons attack against opposition elements in the Damascus suburbs on Aug. 21. An estimated 1,429 are dead, including at least 426 children. This intelligence, Pelosi told reporters, is solid, unlike the intelligence supporting the case for war against Iraq. Pelosi also said she opposes putting U.S. boots on the ground: This isnt about going to war. Its about not ignoring the use of chemical weapons with a strategic strike. Under an acceptable congressional resolution, said Pelosi, U.S. military force would be finite in duration. Its tailored. Its targeted. Its over. Never have the drums of non-war sounded so softly. Theyre like the San Francisco fog coming in on little cat feet. Theres a spurt of outrage followed by a long list of nocan-dos. I share Pelosis outrage at Assads use of chemical weapons. Its about time she saw through Assad. I also fully appreciate why Democrats and Republicans would support President Barack Obama in his drive to strike back at the Assad regime for gassing its own people, but I dont see how Pelosis idea of non-war helps Syrians or the United States. Secretary of State John Kerry told senators they must ask themselves, What is the risk of doing nothing? I ask: What is the risk of doing not much of anything? When the top House Democrat argues that morality demands U.S. military action, but only if its short and sweet, she has announced a military withdrawal before the first bomb drops. No matter what Pelosi says about how an attack is not a real war, it will feel like war in Syria. And who wants to die in a military strike designed not to change the countrys leadership but to make a point? As The New York Times reported, some insiders believe that a cosmetic attack would help rejuvenate Mr. Assads fortunes, at least temporarily, adding to the decadeslong list of confrontations with the West in which Syria has prevailed merely by waiting out the uproar, by surviving. Assad has outlasted Egypts Hosni Mubarak and Libyas Moammar Gadhafi. Hes tangling with two people Pelosi and Obama with so little resolve that theyre arguing about whether Obama himself drew a verbal red line against the use of chemical weapons. Does Assad think he can outplay these not-war warriors? Of course he does.Email Debra J.

Debra Saunders John Deering is chief editorial cartoonist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the state's largest newspaper. Winner of the National Press Foundation's 1997 Berryman Award, Deering also gained top honors in the 1994 national John Fischetti Cartoon Competition and was the seven-time winner of the Arkansas Press Association's Best Editorial Cartoonist award. Born in 1956 in Little Rock, Deering has been drawing since his childhood fascination with science ction and dinosaurs. He and his wife, Kathy, have a daughter and two sons, and live in Little Rock. He still draws dinosaurs. About the cartoonistDriver off key on pop music columnE d i t o r : I must take issue with Bob Drivers most recent op-ed piece in the Seminole Beacon on the state of Pop Music. By the fourth paragraph of the piece, Mr. Driver admits that he is an illiterate when the conversation turns to rap, hip-hop and other noise-ridden varieties of music. Unfortunately, the term Pop Music is used to identify what is popular today. Seeing as how his articles most recent reference is of a song written in 1965, how is this op-ed current at all? I didnt get the point of his editorial. Mr. Drivers assertion that Yesterday by Paul McCartney is a shining example that demolishes the notion that great works of art must, or should, be the product of years of suffering. Seeing as how he was not hanging out with Mr. McCartney during that time (Mr. Driver has only met two people in the music industry), how can Mr. Driver say that song was not out of suffering; did he know what was going on in Pauls head? Just because a piece of art was created in 10 minutes, no one can definitively say what is in an artists mind when he actually created the piece, except of course, the artist. A more interesting note regarding Yesterday, The Beatles did not release this song as a single in the U.K. until 1976 because it did not sound like a Beatles song. (I would say Paul suffered with that for a while). Which brings me to This Land is Your Land. Seeing as how Mr. Guthrie did endure for years during the dust bowl and Mr. Guthries music was an absolute offshoot of travelling the country during that time, I would argue that years of suffering created one of Americas greatest musical pieces. But that song not only celebrated the many great attributes of our country, the song was written as a protest to Kate Smiths God Bless America and of class inequality. Does Mr. Driver know the words to the two controversial verses that were often left off of many pop recordings? The verses about the hungry and the no trespassing signs? My point being. Please do not claim to be illiterate about a subject, and then expound as if nothing great has happened in the music industry in the last 50 years. If you just want to talk contemporary crooners, Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble and Adele are three of many great vocalists born after 1945. Listen to them Mr. Driver and you will change your opinion about POP music. I agree with Mr. Driver if he wants to call Miley Cyrus performance at the MTV music awards terrible. But to compare her to Ella or Rosemary Clooney? How about saying that her performance was just a very poor pastiche of Cher, Madonna and Britney? They did it before her and are much more talented. Then I can understand the criticism. I did try Mr. Drivers exercise and do agree that my life and events have their own soundtrack. But it is music from my era. Genesis Follow You, Follow me during my wedding vows is the one that sticks out to me. But that was written long after 1965 and played by a rock band. I assume that Mr. Driver has never heard it. E W a l t e r L e w i s SeminoleSnack Shack operator appalled by citys actionE d i t o r : I am writing to you as the current operator of the Old Snack Shack as I feel there is important information our local citizens need to know regarding the City Commission and current City Manager, Shane Crawford. First of all, my husband and I have been operating the Snack Shack since September 2010 and since that time, not once has the City Commission or city manager contacted us regarding any concerns about the management of the Snack Shack. We were stunned last week by the Citys arbitrary decision to put the Snack Shack and cabana concession up for bid. Last week, upon hearing about the workshop meeting, we left phone messages with the City Manager who failed to return any of our calls but on September 3, emailed us a brief response, the city has chosen to rebid the project as the premise will be much different than when it was bid. The contract allows for a 90-day notice of termination. The BOC has chosen to exercise that clause. Yet, at the City Commission workshop meeting Crawford said he did not expect new managers to make significant changes to the Snack Shack. He states The Snack Shack will be the Snack Shack. Yet he tells us the premise will be much different than when it was bid? So what is it? We have spent thousands of dollars, time and energy on the Snack Shack and have heard the Citys empty promises of improvements for the Snack Shack for the past three years. They have done nothing. They have said nothing. In fact, at the workshop meeting, the majority of the Commission had nothing to say except for Commissioners, Terry Lister and Elaine Poe. Commissioner Poe used to love the Snack Shack so I cant understand why she doesnt like it now. Elaine Poe states she would like to see a higher class than what we are seeing over there. She says we have not had the quality over there we would like to see. Yet, the citizens of Madeira Beach were good enough for her during her campaign party which she held at the Snack Shack. At that time she was looking for everyones vote whether she considered them people of poor quality and low class or not. We are dismayed at the disloyalty of our now former Snack Shack staff, disgusted with the city manager, and appalled by the brazen arbitrary decision making by the City Commission of Madeira Beach. R i t a J a n e c e k Redington ShoresBy destroying all the balls on Earth, our forces will cause Earthlings to become confused, heartbroken and bereft of any reason to go on.

PETERSBURG Continuing the recent progress in developing a comprehensive modern transit plan for Pinellas County, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board voted 13-1 Aug. 28 to accept the Greenlight Pinellas Plan Vision. County Commissioner Norm Roche cast the lone vote in opposition. The vote signals an acceptance of more than three years of detailed engineering and technical work that is the foundation of the Greenlight Pinellas Plan, according to a press release from PSTA. The plan calls for new bus service, passenger rail, regional connections and complementary transit-oriented land use. The Aug. 28 vote sets the stage for financial implementation, planning and a parallel Greenlight Pinellas public outreach process to be completed this fall. These coordinated transportation planning efforts will allow the Pinellas Board of County Commissioners to approve the Greenlight Pinellas Plan and craft ballot language this December to prepare for a 1 percent transit sales tax referendum in November 2014. PSTA Chief Executive Officer Brad Miller detailed the proposed improvements, which include: Elimination of PSTAs nearly three-quarter mill property tax when the potential sales tax takes effect Jan. 1, 2016 A 65 percent increase in overall bus service throughout Pinellas County Bus Rapid Transit lines on most major Pinellas corridors. Buses running to and from Tampa and the airport in the evenings and on weekends Longer service hours to accommodate second shift workers and evening travelers Plans for a future passenger rail from St. Petersburg to Clearwater via the Gateway area A four-fold increase in bus service in northern Pinellas County Its not just for the people who are here today that we are trying to move this initiative forward, said PSTA Board member and Pinellas County Commissioner Janet Long. Its about the economy and the ability to keep our region vibrant, thriving, bustling and robust for the next generation and generations to come. Board members expressed enthusiasm for both the Greenlight vision and the process through which it was created. Every step has required an approval process so that were all on board with every assumption and every piece of the plan, said Dunedin City Commissioner Julie Ward-Bujalksi. Board members also acknowledged that there is still plenty of work remaining before the plan goes to the voters. We have many more decisions to make before we move forward in November of next year, but I strongly support moving forward with this, said County Commissioner Susan Latvala. Belleair Bluffs City Commissioner Joseph Barkley, who said he fully supports the plan, also added some advice regarding the requested change in the PSTA funding structure. This is, in fact, not a tax that were adding on, its simply an exchange from one tax to another and its very important that people not view this as an additional tax. The final plan is scheduled to be presented to the PSTA Board for approval at their Nov. 20, meeting.

Nelson, selected by her fellow tax collectors for the leadership role, has served on the associations executive committee since 2011, serving as first and second vice president. I am honored to serve my fellow tax collectors as president of their association, Nelson said. Our tax collectors today face many challenges, particularly when it comes to adding new driver license services that have historically been handled by the state. I look forward to working with my colleagues to create solutions that will help us continue to provide outstanding service to our citizens. As president, Nelson is responsible for directing the organizations strategic planning and working with other tax collectors to build consensus on legislative and policy issues. She will represent the association before the Florida Legislature on items with statewide implications and serve as a liaison to various state departments, including the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Department of Revenue. One of the reasons the people of Pinellas County keep returning Diane Nelson to office is the honest, responsive, courteous and prompt service they receive, said Ken van Assenderp, general counsel for FTCA. As the newly elected president of the Florida Tax Collectors Association, Diane will lead her colleagues to new and exciting ways to serve the people of Florida. Nelsons term as president runs until September 2014. The FTCA Executive Leadership Committee also includes: Brevard County Tax Collector Lisa Cullen, first vice president; Highlands County Tax Collector Eric Zwayer, second vice president; Santa Rosa County Tax Collector Stan Nichols, treasurer; and Walton County Tax Collector Rhonda Skipper, secretary.

Concert to promote cyberbullying awareness LARGO Gulf Coast Giving has received a first-ever proclamation from the Pinellas County School Board and Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners recognizing Sept. 23 to 27 as Cyberbullying Awareness Week. As part of the week, Gulf Coast Giving will be hosting a STOP, BLOCK, TELL concert celebration featuring local professional artists on Friday, Sept. 27, 6 to 9 p.m., at Madeira Beach Fundamental School, 591 Tom Stuart Causeway, Redington Shores. The event, free for Pinellas schools and the community-at-large, will include food, games, contests, vendors, local celebrities, favorite team mascots and more. Gulf Coast Giving hopes to inspire cyberbullying awareness and suicide prevention and intervention efforts across schools and homes of Pinellas County. As technology use increases, the risks and dangers of cyberbullying also increase. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the Center for Disease Control. Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims. These efforts are designed to help the community make the strides it needs to move forward with technology in a positive way. Gulf Coast Giving is a 501(c)(3) charity, located at 12597 Walsingham Road, Suite 2 in Largo, whose main mission is to provide schools and nonprofit organizations with needed technology equipment and training while increasing cyberbullying awareness to build integrity when using interactive technologies.

Immigration: Is the Melting Pot Boiling Over? will kick off the fall season of The Village Square dinner series sponsored by SPCs Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions. Media sponsors include the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU. The program is planned as Congress grapples with competing views on how to deal with the problems associated with more than 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country. A comprehensive reform bill passed the Democratically-controlled Senate in June by a wide margin, but the Republican-controlled House is reluctant to take up the Senate bill. Many Republicans favor a piecemeal approach, first securing the nations borders, then addressing the problem of how to deal with the millions of undocumented immigrants already here. A distinguished panel will discuss the pros and cons of the two approaches to resolving the debate. They include: Tim Curtis, chairman of the Tampa 912 Project, representing the anti-immigration point of view Edwin Enciso, coordinator for Comprehensive Immigration Reform Now, based in Tampa, representing the pro-immigration point of view Tara Newsom, associate professor of social and behavioral sciences, St. Petersburg College. The moderator will be Rob Lorei, news and public affairs director of WMNF radio and host of the weekly news review show on WEDU-TV Florida This Week. The Village Square is a forum for non-partisan debate of key state and national issues. Past programs have focused on gun control, climate change, FCAT and testing, and American civil liberties. Reservations for this dinner event are required by Friday, Sept. 13. They may be made online or by mail: Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733. Admission is $25 for Village Square members and educators, $30 for guests and $20 for students. For more information, please call the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at 394-6251.

The FSASE awards one $1,200 scholarship each year, and this years scholarship is named in memory of a former Highlands County Supervisor of Elections. Nominated by Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark, Morgan is a senior at the University of Florida, majoring in Political Science. She was selected for her exceptional academic achievements, as well as her commitment to not only work toward her own educational and personal goals but to also help others along the way. Her leadership, positive attitude and passion for volunteering were among the qualities Clark recognized in Morgan. The scholarship winner was announced at the FSASE Annual Conference in Marco Island, and Supervisor Clark later presented the check and commemorative certificate to Morgan at the Election Service Center in Largo. I commend Chelsea for her many accomplishments especially her volunteer service with pediatric cancer patients and her work with bone marrow donor registration, Clark said. To register more than 1,800 people in the bone marrow database and to see the results of 10 life-saving matches is phenomenal. Morgans strong motivation for volunteering at Shands Hospital and working with pediatric cancer patients springs from her experience as a cancer survivor herself. These children have a special place in her heart. We are honored for Chelsea to represent Pinellas County and to be selected from among all 67 counties in Florida, Clark said. Scholarship applicants are required to be junior or senior students in a Florida college, registered to vote, and majoring in political science, public administration, business administration, journalism or mass communications.

I know its still blistering hot in the afternoon, but if youve been outside at sunrise lately you can feel the change. The fishing has been great recently with the arrival of our fall baitfish. Opportunistic anglers can keep rods bent for the majority of their day both inshore and offshore. Inshore fishing has been spectacular on the low incoming tide all week. Live chumming with scaled sardines can lead to a malay of fish activity. Everything from jack crevalle to redfish will respond to a steady flow of free sardines. Setting up a long cast away from tidal flat edges will allow you to concentrate your efforts in a high percentage area. Find the pelicans and youre going to find the bait. A quarter-inch castnet will prevent gilling some of the smaller baits. There is also plenty of bait holding on grass flats adjacent to the passes. You can either chum them up with jack mackerel or drift and throw them on the flashes. Offshore, red grouper fishing remains excellent in the 45 to 55 foot range. Target Swiss cheese bottom with either live or dead bait, drifting is your best bet as these areas are vast and the fish can be spread out. Gag grouper are holding in these same depths; however, youll need to find a ledge and anchor up tide of it. Start with the frozen bait to get the fish fired up and then switch to the live once you catch a few.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson @hotmail.com. Fish TalesCapt.

South Pacific is a moving classic filled with wonderful melodies, simultaneously upbeat and heartbreaking. Richard Rodgers composed the musical, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and book by Hammerstein and Joshua Logan. It premiered in 1949 on Broadway. Things were different: American audiences were less cynical and less jaded and more charitable and broadminded. Based on stories found in James Micheners Pulitzer Prize-winning Tales of the South Pacific, South Pacific revolves around two romances. It also depicts a burgeoning shift in values that was beginning to change the cultural landscape. Eight OClock Theatre delivers a rousing, engaging South Pacific that reminds audiences that this show is more than a simple love story. South Pacific runs through Sept. 22. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. The action takes place on a small island in the South Pacific during World War II. The American military has been stationed there and is actively trying to dislodge the Japanese from the region. Ensign Nellie Forbush a nurse falls in love with French plantation owner Emile de Becque. Her feelings for him are put to the test when she discovers he has two children and that he was previously married to a Polynesian woman. Nellie wrestles with her own entrenched prejudice. Meanwhile, in a parallel story, LieutenantTheater reviewEight OClock Theatre presents emotional, entertaining South Pacific Photos courtesy of PICTURE THIS OF PALMA CEIAEnsign Nellie Forbush (Sadra Bostick), center, takes center stage during a presentation of The Thanksgiving Follies center, in Eight OClock Theatres production of South Pacific, running through Sept. 22. Joseph Cable falls for Liat, a native islander. Cable from a wealthy Philadelphia family wants to marry her, but cant bring himself to because of his own racial intolerance. The dual romances play out in the timeless, soaring music of Rodgers and the eloquent lyrics of Hammerstein songs such as Some Enchanted Evening and Younger Than Springtime. The productions keynote address on the theme of racism is supplied by the song Youve Got to Be Carefully Taught, a piece that carries as much relevance today as it did 60-odd years ago. Director Linda Woodruff Weir readily acknowledges that the theme remains topical in her notes. I think that South Pacific is as relevant today as it was when it was first written over 50 years ago, she writes. The music is timelessAmerican servicemen congregate around a boars tooth bracelet held by Luther Billis (Stephan Bielawski), in South Pacific.

The meticulously constructed set and colorful, stylish backdrop certainly helps establish the milieu. James Grenelles marvelously adaptable choreography is exuberant and sprightly when appropriate, slick and stirring at other moments. Its during the lively, studiously choreographed numbers like There Is Nothing Like a Dame and Honey Bun that the show scores some of its most memorable moments. The dominant love story, between Ensign Nellie Forbush and Emile De Becque, is made compelling by leads Smith and Bostick. Bosticks Nellie is suitably charming with her rural Arkansas accent. She doesnt play it too cute her Nellie may be a bit nave, but shes no pushover. Vocally, she demonstrates her talent in numbers such as Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Outa My Hair and Im in Love with a Wonderful Guy. Nick Abounader portrays Lieutenant Joseph Cable, delivering a credible performance of a man struggling with indoctrinated bigotry. The production boasts two standout performances. Mona Lim plays Bloody Mary. Lim imbues the character with bawdy charisma. Stephan Bielawski plays Seabee Luther Billis, the comedic central core of the musical. Bielawski underscores the importance of the character the kind of noble, wheeling-dealing everyman who keeps the world moving, keeps the crowd smiling and gets the job done no matter the odds and obstacles. Two other supporting actresses must be praised: Emiles daughters Ngana and Iritana are played by Kiersten Steagall and Kortney Steagall, both age 7. The two have been performing since age 3. They do an outstanding job on stage. Eight OClock Theatres production of South Pacific is gorgeous and entertaining. It evokes the optimism of another era and gives a glimpse of the societal transformation that was just beginning. Despite the fact that some of the material is dated, the love stories in South Pacific remain emotionally stirring and the theme of racism is certainly relevant.

Yet few people outside the fashion world have heard of her ... until now. Mademoiselle C chronicles Roitfelds launch of her new magazine, CR Fashion Book.

And of course, its filled with the models, celebrities, and eccentric personalities that make the fashion world so entertaining.Blue CapriceGenre: Drama and thriller Cast: Isaiah Washington, Tequan Richmond, Joey Lauren Adams, Tim Blake Nelson and Leo Fitzpatrick Director: Alexandre Moors Rated: R The striking feature film debut of writer-director Alexandre Moors, Blue Caprice is a harrowing yet restrained psychological thriller about an abandoned boy lured to America into the shadows of a dangerous father figure. Inspired by true events, Blue Caprice investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two perpetrators, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork, and a unique and bold structure, Blue Caprice documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence.

Soon after, he co-founded Common Ground, a successful grassroots relief organization. But over the next few years, he began hiding a shocking secret. After two young protestors were arrested at the 2008 Republican National Convention, Darby revealed he had been instrumental in the indictment as an FBI informant. The only film with access to Darby since his public confession, Informant meticulously constructs a picture of his life before and after the death threats through interviews and tense reenactments starring Darby himself. Darbys version of events is accompanied and often contradicted by evidence from acquaintances and expert commentators on various points along the political spectrum, posing complicated questions about trust and the nature of reality. WadjdaGenre: Drama Cast: Reem Abdullah, Waad Mohammed and Abdullrahman Algohani Director: Haifaa Al-Mansour Rated: PG Wadjda is a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.

After a fight with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldnt be playing with, Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale. She wants the bicycle desperately so that she can beat Abdullah in a race. But Wadjdas mother wont allow it, fearing repercussions from a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girls virtue. So Wadjda decides to try and raise the money herself. At first, Wadjdas mother is too preoccupied with convincing her husband not to take a second wife to realize whats going on. And soon enough Wadjdas plans are thwarted when she is caught running various schemes at school. Just as she is losing hope of raising enough money, she hears of a cash prize for a Koran recitation competition at her school. She devotes herself to the memorization and recitation of Koranic verses, and her teachers begin to see Wadjda as a model pious girl. The competition isnt going to be easy, especially for a troublemaker like Wadjda, but she refuses to give in. She is determined to continue fighting for her dreams.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.

Whenever thoughts turn to Ireland and Irish music, The Irish Tenors immediately spring to mind. Ranked as Irelands premier ambassadors of song, they entertain audiences worldwide with a quality of performance which is unrivalled, incomparable and, most importantly in their eyes, worthy of the rich cultural heritage of the country of Ireland and the exquisite musical treasury created by Irish people everywhere throughout history. Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns and Ronan Tynan return with a heartfelt and patriotically charged performance not to be missed. M a r c C o h n Friday, March 21, 2014, 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $45. Folk rock, singer-songwriter and musician Marc Cohn combines the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Hes a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales. His career took off in 1990 with the recording of his critically acclaimed, self-titled debut disc, which yielded such classics as Grammy Award-winning Walking In Memphis, Silver Thunderbird and True Companion. A l S t e w a r t Saturday, March 22, 2014, 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $29. Like the fine wines that are his hobby, Al Stewarts gifts as a singer and songwriter have matured and ripened over the course of his musical career, stretching from the early s to the present and beyond. He is best known for Year of the Cat which was released in 1976 and spawned two Top 20 hits, the title song and On the Border which became a million-selling record. As he nears the 20-album mark, Stewart remains a distinctively literate and vivid storyteller, time traveling and teleporting himself and his listeners from World War I battlefields to s bedrooms, from ships to airplanes to ice floes, from the specific to the mysterious.

Steve Hacketts work is featured on some of the greatest songs of the past four decades. Whether with Genesis, GTR or on his solo output, the man has been a giant of the prog-rock genre. His guitar style and range has been both innovative and inspirational and hes most definitely among the greats on the instrument, as you can tell by listening to Genesis classics like Firth Of Fifth, Suppers Ready or The Musical Box. His sense of drama and diversity was accentuated by a desire to try different ideas, something thats still true. N o b u y u k i T s u j i i Wednesday, April 9, 2014, 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $35. Known for his refined and effortless playing, Nobuyuki Tsujiis spellbinding performances at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition introduced him to hundreds of thousands of new fans around the world and elevated him to superstar status in his home country of Japan.
