TORRESLARGO After a nationwide search, the city of Largo decided to permanently install Deputy Chief Shelby Willis, who has been leading the department since April, as chief of Largo Fire Rescue. Willis took over the department after the resignation of then-Chief Mike Wallace, who left April 1 after an internal investigation revealed low morale and questionable leadership decisions in the department. Since then, Willis has sought to openly collaborate with all levels of fire personnel and handle issues proactively, in an effort to reverse the negative outlook, she said. She was excited to learn Sept. 13 that she had been chosen for the permanent position, though she admitted that a bit of anxiety, followed as she realized that she no longer had the excuse of being just the interim chief. You realize the full responsibility and gravity of the position, she said. The city formally announced the decision Sept. 16. Dozens of applicants ap-I try to meet all levels of the organization, just to get their input and get their feedback. And well continue to do that going forward. Fire Chief Shelby Willisplied to be Largo Fire Chief, a field that was narrowed down to eight semifinalists who were interviewed by telephone, according to a press release. Representatives from fire labor, executive management and command staff interviewed the four finalists, with each of the panels choosing Willis as their pick for fire chief. Willis said including a cross section of the department on decisions was exactly her policy as interim chief. In April, she asked Largos firefighters to be patient as the organization realigned its priorities to work together. And theyve met us. They met me and met the administrative staff halfway, and its been a great experience, Willis said. We have a good collaborative relationship at this point. Its just going to get better. Willis said she emphasized moving past the low morale and well identified issues that plagued the department, bringing fire personnel to the table to discuss solutions instead. I try to meet all levels of the organization, just to get their input and get their feedback. And well continue to do that going forward, she said. A hiring board made up of firefighters, union officers, lieutenants and command officers also interviewed applicants for five open firefighter positions, due to start Oct. 1. They interviewed the people, they ranked the people. They handed me a list on who we want to hire, and thats what I did, Willis said. The ensuing support of the department has been overwhelming, she said. Photo courtesy of the CITY OF LARGOAs of Sept. 16, Shelby Willis is the city of Largos first female fire chief. Recognition, at last Options for animal control considered By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Passions ran high due to a number of diverging opinions, still many took time from their allotted three minutes to thank Pinellas County Commissioners for devoting their attention to the matter of pet overpopulation. Animal advocates are determined that something be done to stop the practice of euthanizing pets in Pinellas County and improve responsible pet ownership. A Sept. 10 work session focused on two proposals trap, neuter, vaccinate and return to the area where they were trapped (TNVR) for the countys feral cat population, and mandatory spay and neuter (MSN) for all cats and dogs. After nearly four hours of discussion, the commission agreed to support a pilot program for TNVR but put a hold on mandatory spay and neuter, opting to continue with the voluntary program already in place. Commissioner Norm Roche is ready to go forward with TNVR without a pilot program and MSN. For years, animal lovers have taken care of the feral cat colonies in locations throughout Pinellas. Most do their work in secret because technically, theyre breaking the law. Officials dont have population figures per geographic location, but they estimate that free roaming cats number somewhere between 92,367 and 172,687. Free roaming cats include those that are owned and domesticated but left free to roam and those that are feral not owned, not socialized and free roaming. Maureen Freaney, director of Pinellas County Animal Services, said a TNVR program would include humanely trapping feral and free roaming cats that would then be spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and, if needed, receive other medical treatment. The left ear would be notched and the cats would be returned to the community from which they were originally trapped. Animal Services currently loans traps to citizens and trapped cats are accepted at the shelter for no charge. The cats are held for four days to give their owner a chance to reclaim them. Kittens are held only two days due to risks for disease in the shelters environment. After the holding period, they are examined and friendly cats are put up for adoption. Freaney said Animal Services has an extensive foster network in use to help socialize feral kittens so they too can be adopted. Older feral cats, those not socialized, are humanely euthanized. Current county ordinances make it difficult for Briarwood ordinance passed as residents relocateWWII POW receives delayed military medalsLARGO After 67 years after his discharge from the U.S. Navy, World War II veteran and prisoner of war McPherson Mac Plecker, 94, received the nine military medals he earned but never received. The medals were awarded in a ceremony Sept. 14 at The Plaza at the Palms of Largo. Plecker, a patient at Suncoast Hospice, said the paperwork for the medals was lost many years ago. Humble as many veterans are, he never mentioned it to others. Upon learning about Pleckers service and missing medals, his Suncoast Hospice care team offered to help work with the Department of the Navy to get his medals and ribbons. Among those he received were the Purple Heart, Prisoner of War Medal and the American Defense Service Medal. Former U.S. Congressman Mike Bilirakis presented Plecker with an American flag that flew over the U.S. Capitol in his honor recently as well as a military congressional coin. Staff from Congressman Bill Youngs office also read a letter of gratitude from Congressman Young. Suncoast Hospice and Palms of Largo co-hosted the event.

TORRESLARGO After asking how the current property owners are continuing to help residents of the Briarwood RV Park relocate, the Largo Commission approved another step in the development of the land into a 260-unit apartment complex Sept. 17. The approved ordinance changes the land use designation of the property at 2098 Seminole Blvd. from its lowdensity residential classification to residential high. The designation was needed before Largo-based Dockside Investors can begin construction on the property, hopefully by March or April, said company representatives. Development of the Briarwood property has been in the works for about a year. Aside from concerns that the complex would cause extra traffic on Seminole Boulevard and be obtrusive to its neighbors, the development of the forested RV park has been delayed several times due to difficulties in relocating its current residents. The property itself was classified as a camping ground, not a mobile home park, but largely due to its former absentee landowner the tenants who rented plots month to month described themselves as permanent residents. Many of their RVs are rundown or have additions constructed that make them hard, if not impossible, to move. Lawyers at Gulfcoast Legal Services offered to help represent residents and succeeded in slowing down the process of development and bringing awareness of the residents hardships to leaders at both the city and county level. County commissioners delayed their approval of the land use designation change in July, requesting the property owners help residents relocate. Dockside Investors agreed, setting aside $30,000 into a relocation fund and contracting with Community Services Foundation to help them in the process. The county approved the reclassification Aug. 6, which sent the issue back to Largo commissioners. Tina Harper, Briarwoods property manager, told the city commissioners that the remaining families were being helped with a variety of ongoing issues. Of the 15 families that remain in the park, seven were scheduled to move by the end of September, she said. Theres no one reason why some of these people still remain, Harper said, offering the example of one resident See CHIEF, page 4A See ANIMAL CONTROL, page 4A See BRIARWOOD, page 4AVIEWPOINTSBob Driver How to get good at gabbing.

4A County Leader, September 19, 2013volunteers trying to help feral cat populations. First, it is against county code to feed strays. People who feed free roaming cats are breaking the law. County code prohibits dogs and cats from running free. In addition, its against state law to release animals that are not indigenous to the state without a permit. Cats are not indigenous to the state of Florida. Lastly, all dogs and cats in Pinellas are required to have a license and current rabies vaccinations. Freaney said Pinellas is a county where all cats are supposed to live indoors. She said it is safer for humans, cats and other wildlife. However, officials realize that not all cats live indoors. They know people let their cats run free. They also know there is a big population of feral cats. But so far, little impact has been made toward solving the problem of free roaming cats. Freaney said officials recognize that trapping and euthanizing feral cats is not affecting the population, and they dont expect a TNVR program to have a significant impact. However, given the choice between free roaming cats that are not sterilized or vaccinated, she said the preference would be to do TNVR. She said officials are aware that many citizens are currently participating in TNR (no vaccination) under the radar. Deciding to support a local nonprofit organizations efforts to do TNVR is a new direction for Pinellas County. SPCA Tampa Bay is very interested in implementing a pilot program, according to its CEO Martha Boden. Freaney outlined conditions for a pilot program, including the ability of the organization to provide a viable business plan and funding sources. The group must get insurance and have liability provisions. Cat colony management must ensure reductions in colonies and cats and include a way to validate the numbers. Independent validation of the programs success also must be included. The organization must decide whether to target specific geographic areas or try a countywide program. It must develop policies and procedures to ensure protection of public lands, parks, beaches, schools and wildlife area. Efforts to respect private property rights have to be included. The process also has to make sure friendly stray cats and kittens are separated from colonies, so they can be adopted or returned to their owners. The program must include an effort to promote the countys policy of keeping all cats indoors. County staff is recommending that the nonprofit bring a business plan to the commission prior to relaxing any of the ordinances in place that might interfere with the program.Mandatory spay and neuterProbably the most controversial subject was mandatory spay and neuter. Both sides had compelling arguments with little neutral ground. The good news is that theres a lot of passion about this on both sides, Freaney said. The bad news is that theres a lot of passion on both sides. Freaney outlined some common provisions from those who advocate a mandatory program to sterilize the countys pet population. However, a number of those opposed to the program spoke against the primary requirement to spay and neuter by age 4 to 6 months, citing a myriad of potential health hazards, some specific to certain breeds and show animals. The mandatory program would prohibit the sale of unsterilized animals older than 4 to 6 month. Exceptions were available for working, service, show and hunting dogs or animals that could not be sterilized for health reasons. The program also called for increased licensing fees and citations for those who did not sterilize their animals. Freaney said that currently all dog and cats available for adoption through Animal Services are spayed and neutered. Animal Services also offers incentives for spaying and neutering to residents who reclaim their pets and to pet owners of dangerous animals and those involved in bite cases. The county offers low cost spay and neuter services for cats to citizens on public assistance and has reduced impound fees for sterilized animals. Animal Services also works with the community to promote voluntary spay and neuter. Freaney conveyed some of the reasons mandatory spay and neuter wasnt the best idea, and several speakers brought up the same concerns. She said in other communities mandatory spay and neuter had led to decreased rabies vaccinations and licensing for pet owners who, for a variety of reasons, had not sterilized their animals. As a result, revenue from license fees went down. Mandatory spay and neuter doesnt help with the problem of residents who cant afford services, nor does it help with the cost of making affordable spay and neuter services available. Freaney said families who could not afford to have their animals sterilized would have to surrender their pets. Some advocates for MSN said people who couldnt afford the service probably should not have pets. Several speakers said the decision to have a pet spayed or neutered should be between the pet owner and their veterinarian. Some feared that pet owners would not get their animals proper care if they were in violation of the law. Cost of enforcement also would be prohibitive, Freaney said. Freaney recommended that Animal Services continue to work with its partners and others to make voluntary low cost spay and neuter more accessible, including providing support for SPCA Tampa Bays efforts to build a low cost spay and neuter clinic and the Humane Society of Pinellas Neuter Scooter. County staff also recommended a new policy that calls for mandatory sterilization at the owners expense of any animal impounded for a second time. A couple speakers asked that the code include time intervals. One woman gave the example of a dog getting out when it was 5 months old and again when it was 5 years old. She said she didnt believe that dog should be sterilized. Commissioners asked staff to consider that issue. Another idea is to increase the license fee for animals that are not sterilized. Freaney cautions that increasing the fee might lead to less people buying their annual license. Hold times for reclaiming animals also could be changed to allow animals to spend less time in the stressful shelter environment. Freaney assured the commissioners that Animal Services was working closely with all interested parties on problems caused primarily by irresponsible pet owners. This is not the time to do mandatory spay and neuter this is a big decision and it should be a community decision, Freaney said.

CHIEF, from page 1A BRIARWOOD, from page 1AStormwater fee approved by Pinellas County Commission By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The public said now is not the time to add more fees. They cited rising taxes, water bills, electric bills and higher insurance costs. However, most did agree that something should be done to fix deteriorating water quality. Kelli Levy, the countys Surface Water coordinator, said 74 percent of Pinellas water bodies are impaired. The public also agreed that aging infrastructure should be repaired. Levy said failing pipes are now an almost daily occurrence. Still, the majority protested fees that are increasing taxes for some by as much as 25 percent. They said it was too much, too fast. Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch sympathized with the 30 or so speakers who attended the Sept. 10 public hearing. Theyll never be a perfect time, he said just before the vote was taken. I understand times are rough. Commissioners voted 6-1 to enact the fee, which will appear on the 2014 tax bill. Many residents complained that they werent aware of the fee until it was included on the Truth in Millage Notice mailed out Aug. 19. Others complained that the notice of Tuesday nights meeting wasnt adequate. A notice had been included in the envelope with the TRIM Notice, but some said they didnt get one. Some complained that their bills were too high. Levy admitted that about 17,000 tax bills had been amended thus far due to calculations that had included pool cages. She urged people to ask for help if they believe their bills are incorrect. For more information, people also can $69.90 a year, $116.60 for a medium home and $266.80 for a large home. The fees are based on properties impervious surfaces from which rainwater flows into streets, ditches, storm drains and then on to streams, lakes and finally Tampa Bay of the Gulf of Mexico. Storm water contains pollutants and those pollutants must be removed from the countys water bodies per federal and state regulations. The county needs money to clean up its water bodies and keep them clean, or face fines, which County Administrator Bob LaSala said would likely require even higher taxes and fees to pay for the cleanup as well as improving the stormwater system. Commissioner Norm Roche voted no and continued to push for a countywide program. Water is everyones problem, he said. He made a motion against approval of the storm water fee to allow consideration of a true countywide approach. His motion died for lack of a second. Commissioner Susan Latvala agreed with Roches theory, but pointed out that the county needed to work on its own problems before asking the countys municipalities to become a partner to combat the problem. Currently 15 of 24 municipalities collect storm water fees, which they have been used for several years to implement storm water management programs. I agree it should be countywide, Latvala said. But we havent done our job in the last 30 years. We need to do our job, cleanup and then got back to the cities. Were way behind the eight ball on this, Commissioner John Morroni said. This should have been done long ago. Pinellas Countys new stormwater fee for unincorporated residents is tiered with a lower cost for smaller properties.visit www.pinellascounty.org/environment/watershed/stormwaterfee.htm. The fees are tiered and unincorporated residents are being charged due to the size of their property. The fee for smaller homes is about BriefsMobile waste collection set for Sept. 21SEMINOLE Pinellas County Utilities is sponsoring a mobile hazardous waste collection on Sunday, Sept. 21, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Seminole High School, 8401 131st St. N.

ANIMAL CONTROL, from page 1AIts just even more exciting, because now, theyre ready to move forward as much as we are, Willis said.The ladder to leadershipWillis, 45, is Largos first female fire chief but said she didnt notice the shattering of any glass ceilings as she rose through the ranks at Largo Fire Rescue. Shes always felt like part of the team. The uniqueness is lost on me, she said. In fire and police in the city of Largo, it doesnt matter if youre male or female, doesnt matter your color or ethnicity. If you can do the job, youre accepted. Willis joined the U.S. Air Force as a security police officer at age 17, fresh out of high school and young enough that her parents had to sign permission for her to join. After serving between 1985 and 1989, Willis returned home to Florida and found her initial career ambitions thwarted. I had a very difficult time finding a job as a police officer. There wasnt a lot of opportunities at the time, she said. She decided to go back to school to become a paramedic, also earned a bachelors degree in psychology from the University of South Florida. While in paramedic school in 1995, an ironic call during a ride along with a Largo engine crew changed Willis career path once more. The engine company I was with got a call for a crematorium, of all places, she said. It was a real fire, a full alarm assignment. She watched as the firefighters began pulling out hoses and running into the burning crematorium. The scene was impressive. I knew that second that I wanted to be a firefighter, she said. She was a volunteer at the Redington Beach Fire Department before Largo Fire Rescue hired her as a paramedic/firefighter in 1997. She set her sights on becoming division chief of emergency medical services first. She achieved that feat in 2006, realizing that it might be possible to achieve the top job as she rose to deputy chief. It was a challenge to accept some of the decisions Wallace made after becoming fire chief in October 2007, Willis said. Its always difficult when you dont agree with policy thats coming out of your supervisors office, she said. Especially given her military background, Willis remained firm in her stance of supporting the policymaker of the organization. I did have the ability to walk into the chiefs office and say, I dont agree with this; heres an alternative perspective. But in the end, my job is to implement the polices that he or she sets, she said.A perfect scoreThe city of Largo surprised Willis July 2 with a plaque commending her most recent educational achievement: a perfect score in completion of the National Fire Academys Executive Fire Officer program. She is Largos third executive officer to complete the program, and one of only 188 graduates in the history of the program to have scored a 4.0. Willis said she didnt expect to earn the distinction when she began the intense, four-year program that involves a thesis paper of applied research. I didnt think it was possible, but I was really, really excited about the topic, and I think that helped tremendously, she said. For her topic, she explored the best way to prepare firefighters for retirement. The process is often difficult for professionals who are used to having a tremendous amount of responsibility and a constant team of peers with them. They dont walk into a scene and take control anymore. Its hard to give up, Willis explained. They have to have something to retire into if theyre just going to do the honey-do list and play golf once a week, its usually not enough to keep them interested and keep them content with their retirement. The study found that the best policy was to prepare retiring firefighters at least five years out, making sure that they knew what major hobby, new career, part-time work or volunteer efforts would become their new passion. Former firefighters without a plan tended to get sick, become depressed and have other medical issues, Willis said.Steady changeWillis said that the department has seen a gradual turnaround since April. Its been a slow and steady change. It certainly didnt happen overnight, and weve still got a ways to go, but were getting there, she said. She plans to maintain a proactive approach to leading the department, involving all levels of the department in decisions and constantly soliciting feedback. She will have to hire a deputy chief immediately, as she was filling the roles of both interim chief and deputy chief while a final decision was being made. A series of successive promotions will follow, but for now, Willis said she doesnt anticipate making any other big changes to the department. It will be important for both the fire leadership and its firefighters to work together to move the department in a better direction, she explained. I think the field is trying to see if we mean what we say. Are we going to be able to keep up this attitude and this forward movement? As we show them that, theyll also meet us with their continued excitement and their contribution, she said. Willis has been married to her husband, Victor, for 21 years, and they have a 6-year-old son, Brody.who planned to stay until the last minute before he moved to New York. But most everybody is finding some place to go, finding apartments. Its progress every single day. Dockside hopes to help the rest find resolution before the park closes Nov. 1. The eight (remaining) families will definitely be taken care of Nov. 1, to the extent that they cooperate, said attorney Ed Armstrong, representing Dockside. We cant force anything. They will continue to have every opportunity to relocate successfully. Per additional commission approval, the city will be amending the developers agreement to remove a provision that requires the apartments on the property to be rented at market rates. The city received a threat that there would be a Fair Housing Act complaint filed, City Attorney Alan Zimmet explained. Rather than fight the battle, administration decided that they were comfortable with this applicant, that we knew what the plans were at this point, and we could go forward without that. Dockside assured the commission that they had no intention to build anything but market-rate apartments, even without the provision. Commissioners unanimously agreed to both the ordinance and the pending change to the developers agreement. After staff prepares the amendment, it will be approved in two public hearings, scheduled for commission meetings on Thursdays, Oct. 1 and 15, 6 p.m. at Largo City Hall, 201 Highland Ave.City concludes pension negotiationsAlso during the Sept. 17 meeting, commissioners unanimously agreed to changes to the pension plan, negotiated with citys fire and police unions over the last year. The changes include a phased increase in the employee payroll contribution rate from 5 percent to 8 percent over the next three years and reduced benefits for new hires. It also allows the use of all premium tax revenue to fund basic plan costs until funding benchmarks are achieved. After that, the revenue will continue to be added to the employees SHARE accounts.Commissioner Robert Murray said he agreed that the change was necessary to keep the citys pension plan going forever. I think this is a step in the right direction in order to make it sustainable, he said. Its very important were taking this step. The Sun Coast Police Benevolent Association membership ratified the changes with a vote of 90-10. The International Association of Firefighters Local 2427 will be voting on this issue in the next two weeks. If approved by both unions, the city is set to save $536,000 in the upcoming budget year, an amount already accounted for in the budget that was set for final approval Sept. 18.

Must present coupon Exp. 12-31-13 Sheriffs Office investigates stabbingsWall Springs Park fire deemed suspicious By SUZETTE PORTERPALM HARBOR Pinellas Countys Parks & Conservation Resources Director Paul Cozzie got an unexpected wakeup call the morning of Sept. 11 from the Palm Harbor Fire Department. Palm Harbor firefighters responded to a fire at Wall Springs Park, 3725 De Soto Blvd. in Palm Harbor, just before 7:30 a.m. They soon discovered that the observation tower was ablaze. Pinellas County officials closed the park for the day shortly thereafter. Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives with the Arson and Auto Theft Unit are investigating the fire that reportedly caused substantial damage to the 35-foot tower. Detectives said the fire appears to be suspicious in nature and asks that anyone with information that could help detectives to call Detective Larry McLean of the Arson and Auto Theft Unit at 727-582-6200. The observation tower was added to Wall Springs Park in 2005 and cost about $315,000. The cost was paid from Pinellas Countys Capital Improvement Fund. The tower allows visitors a panoramic view of the 210-acre Wall Springs Park, which is located on the site of a historical, natural spring that was once a popular spa and bathing area. It is home to an array of wildlife, such as squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, reptiles and birds. County officials report that the fire affected no wildlife, although some vegetation, mostly pine needles and leaf litter, was burned. As of Friday, Sept. 13, the east section of the park was open. The section on the west side remained closed at the bridge. There has been no word of when the west side will reopen. LARGO Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are investigating a stabbing incident that occurred about 11:18 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15. According to the sheriffs report, deputies found stabbing victims at two separate addresses in unincorporated Largo. Deputies said the incidents are connected. Deputies responded to 6463 146th Ave. in unincorporated Largo, where an injured male, Jeffrey Laforge, 28, and an injured female, Amy L. Wilson, 30, both of St. Petersburg were located. The two had been stabbed. Laforge was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Wilson was transported by ambulance to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Deputies also responded to 6262 142nd Ave., where a third person, 23-year-old Andrew Fronczak of Largo was located. He had also been stabbed. Fronczak was transported by ambulance to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-lifethreatening injuries. Detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit said the stabbing incidents are connected and are not random acts, as the individuals involved are known to each other. At this time, they are not seeking any other parties involved. The investigation continues.

Leonard Lanni, 37, also had been taken into custody that same night on disorderly conduct charges. According to investigators with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, at about 10:55 p.m., Morrow and Lanni were being transported to the Pinellas County Jail when Lanni battered Morrow. Morrow was transported to Bayfront Medical Center by ground for treatment of lifethreatening injuries. He was later transferred to Kindred Hospital where he died. The Medical Examiners Office has taken custody of Morrows body and an autopsy will be conducted. Lanni is being held in the Pinellas County Jail on charges of attempted second-degree murder. The State Attorneys Office is reviewing the case and Lanni could face a murder charge.

Our progress has been very rapid since we first opened our doors to students in February 2011.

CIC is a Christian College whose sole area of study is nursing. It is this very combination that makes the college such a unique institution in the Tampa Bay area. The faculty is committed to delivering nursing education with a holistic approach to patient centered care.

Everyone is so busy with work and family no one has time to stop and chat anymore. That is, unless there is something to chat about, and thats where the Little Free Library comes in. The Little Free Library is an idea that seems to be catching on all over North America and has taken root in one particular neighborhood in Clearwater. The concept is based on the premise, If you build it they will come. The idea is to build a small structure, roughly about 2 square feet, and place it outside your house. Fill it with books that are free to borrow or take, then sit back and watch as the neighbors gather and get to know one another. Todd Bol of Hudson, Wis., is the founder of the Little Free Library organization. He says it was something he thought up to honor his mother. It is a free book exchange to promote literacy and the appreciation of books, he said. My mom loved people, and she always made you feel better about yourself. We always had books around and I had a lot of books; when she died, there were a lot of books left. So I celebrated her and put in the Little Free Library. Bol said after he built one, he put it in a garage sale, and it had a special effect on people. People treated it like they would a puppy; they got excited, it was magic the way it opened up neighborhoods, he said. That was four years ago, and people say that they have met more neighbors than they have in years. They stop and talk and just mingle with one another. Since then Bol said there are Little Free Libraries in more than 50 countries. A woman from Ukraine contacted us and she built 100 of them, he said. The library can take any form according to Bol, and they can be located anywhere. It can just be a box, or shaped like a house or cottage or a store then hung on a post outside your front door, or in parks or on docks or even on islands where only fishermen go, he said. The key to success is a passionate steward who looks after it and maintains it and their book exchange. In Clearwater, there is no doubt that passionate steward is Donna Kellner. She lives on North Madison Avenue and is as enthusiastic about her Little Free Library today as she was when she installed it a year and a half ago. I saw a story about the Little Free Library on one of the national news programs one night and immediately said, Ive got to do that, she said. Im a big book lover and have hundreds of books in my house and decided it was something I had to do. So Kellner, 54, went online, found the website, ordered a kit and, with her husband Larry, put it together. From there, she said it was only a matter of filling it with books and get it going. She said it didnt take long to catch on. Photo by BRIAN GOFFClearwaters Donna Kellner stands next to the Little Free Library, which she has erected, outside her home.Im a shy person, so I didnt have a grand opening or anything like that, she said. I just put it out there and I watched. A couple of neighbors thought it was a mailbox, but after about a week, more people came and looked and read the information sheet and suddenly it became very popular, she said. Kellner said there has been no issue with vandalism or theft at all. How can you steal something that is given, free, she said. There are no real rules; give a book, return a book. Some people even add to it and the library is never empty. Each book has a sticker that says this book is always a gift, never for sale. I have a light inside my library so people even come by at night and browse through the books. Founder Bol says it shouldnt be surprising that the Little Free Library manages to bring people together. He says it is a natural instinct for people to want to interact. We want to get along with our neighbors and friends, and this is something that brings us together. The Library is a great statement about how people want to be together and connect to each other face to face. This is Facebook with a face, he said. That has proven true in Clearwater in Kellners Madison Avenue neighborhood. I have met people I hadnt seen in 30 years, she said. Ive met people from Tampa and St. Pete and people on vacation from North Carolina. Ive met a lot of children. They call me the book fairy so it has been great. Ive loved books since I was a little girl and this is my dream. Anyone can start a Little Free Library. For more information go to their website at www.littlefreelibrary.org. PSTA Board approves budget for 2014 yearST. PETERSBURG Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Board of Directors approved the agencys 2014 budget Sept. 11 with no change to the millage rate. The budget includes expanded bus services as part of a three-year balanced budget plan, according to a press release from PSTA. All-time record ridership and higher-than-expected fare-box revenues, along with prudent cost savings have given Pinellas Countys transit leaders the opportunity to approve a slightly increased and balanced budget for 2014, PSTA officials said. The budget plan for the coming year includes the purchase of new buses and minor increases in service. The adopted 2014 PSTA operating budget totals $63,294,731 and with a reduced reliance on reserve funds, is forecasted to remain balanced through FY2015 and FY2016. Not long ago, it looked as though our reserves would be depleted in 2014, said PSTA CEO Brad Miller. But thanks to record ridership generating strong fare-box revenues as well as a diligent effort by staff to identify efficiencies and save dollars, were thrilled to be able to expand our bus services to benefit the community. PSTA projects to save $3.1 million through the end of the current FY2013, which agency leaders plan to use to replace aging buses. A slightly higher than projected increase in property values also will allow the agency to restore some service that was cut several years ago due to falling property tax revenues resulting from the Great Recession. Improvements may include additional service in the evenings and along routes served by the Jolley Trolley, as well as a new transfer and customer service center in Pinellas Park. WiFi on PSTA buses and implementation of Smart Card fare technology also will come on line in 2014. As the planned November 2014 referendum on the Greenlight Pinellas Plan gets closer and the plans for dramatically expanded transit system in Pinellas County are finalized, the FY2014 PSTA Budget provides funds to continue extensive outreach to citizens and communities across Pinellas County to ensure voters are well-informed before they make their vote on Greenlight Pinellas. To learn more about PSTA, its service and budget documents, visit www.PSTA.net. For more information on the agencys transit improvement plan, Greenlight Pinellas, visit www.greenlightpinellas.com.

Viewpoints 9A Leader, September 19, 2013If you think youve seen a flying saucer, dont call us. Our Close Encounters bureau is shorthanded these days, so I doubt we will be able to cover the story. Same goes for sightings of Big Foot, Jimmy Hoffa and the New Jersey Devil. Over the years, weve received all kinds of unusual news tips. Thats good. You can never have enough ears and eyes in this business. But we have to pick and choose. Throughout my career, its been gratifying to hear from so many readers, whether they have news tips, need help or just want to vent. Or, theyre looking for an old article. I recently listened to a voice mail from a woman in California who was searching for any articles about the death of her husband. He was killed in an accident in 1959. Wish I could help, but its not possible. Our archives only go back as far as about 2004. Along those lines, my advice to readers is preserve your memories. Clip newspaper articles or preserve them electronically. We only have a limited amount of old newspapers in bound volumes, and we dont have time to search extensively for articles. We receive a lot of inquiries from readers wanting to know the best way to submit materials for publication, such as notices about fundraising drives, sports teams registration and student awards. The best way to communicate with us is through email. Our general email address is editorial@TBNweekly.com. The staff member who handles email will make sure it gets to the right editor. Here are some other tips for getting materials published in a timely fashion: If you want to submit a photograph, make sure you send it in a JPEG format. Please dont embed it in a word document; we may not be able to retrieve it. You may mail or drop off prints of pictures. We will try to save them, but we cant guarantee we will return them. Please give us adequate notice if you want us to cover an event. We cant cover an event if we are notified about it only hours before its scheduled time. However, we usually will accept pictures from the event that are submitted to us. Simply identify people in the photo, from left to right. First and last names. But if there are a dozen people in the photo, just provide a general description of the event. The shorter, the better. Over the years, photographers have provided us great sunsets, wildlife and other feature photos. We publish such photos with the understanding that we cant compensate the photographers, but will credit them for their shots in the photo captions. Some of these photographers have won awards in Florida newspaper contests for their work. We are happy to submit their photos. We hate faxes, love email. Thats because we can copy and paste email, saving time in typing and editing. On deadline days, especially Mondays and Tuesdays, we may not have time to return your calls immediately. Its easier to communicate through email. If you have opened a business, we will be glad to run a short announcement about it. If you want more free publicity for it, buy an ad. We usually dont attend ribbon cuttings, unless somebody famous plans to attend. The pope would qualify. Did I tell you we hate faxes? We will accept hand written letters to the editor, but it may take awhile for us to have them typed. See the note about faxes. If you are certain that you know the whereabouts of Jimmy Hoffa and will give us the scoop, take me to him. You provide the shovels.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Email him at tgermond@TBNweekly.com.Do you feel tongue-tied when you have to chat with people? Do you fear socializing with strangers? Do words and ideas desert you at the very moment you need to connect with members of the human race? If so, please read these few brief suggestions on how you can become a confident conversationalist. FIND SOMEONE TO TALK TO. Most conversations require at least two persons. Some people talk to themselves, or God, or their dog, but thats really not conversation, is it? What you need is another human, preferably someone who is awake, not drunk and who speaks the same language as you. INTRODUCE YOURSELF. Once you have obtained a suitable other to talk with, you should identify yourself, in this fashion: I am Clyde Moreau, a lung-tissue analyst from Omaha. I would like to converse with you. And your name is? That should get the ball rolling, or at least ease the other persons suspicion that you might be a mugger or a life insurance salesman. ASK QUESTIONS. But make sure theyre not too personal. Dont ask, Are you washed in the blood of the lamb? or Are those dumplings really yours, or have you had some reconstruction work done? Instead, try to draw the other person out with questions about current events or popular culture. Examples: Do you think Hillary will run in 2016? Have you heard about George Zimmermans plan to become president of the National Rifle Association? FIND COMMON GROUND. No matter how varied our personal histories, most of us share certain interests. Restaurants, for example. Have you tried the steak tartare at the Pinellas Park Wendys? No, but Ive discovered this wonderful Greek place beneath the Sunshine Skyway bridge. And so on. A related topic is dieting. A recent survey showed that 94 percent of adult Americans are either on a diet or thinking about one. Another useful fall-back topic is dogs. Or cats. Or children. Do you have a dog? Oh, my, yes. I came home one day last week and found my rat terrier chewing on my 2-yearolds foot. Hes so cute. Your child? No, the terrier. And there you go, two people exchanging unforgettable anecdotes. SEEK HELP. No stranger can resist responding to a person who needs assistance or advice. Sir, can you tell me whether Comcast tells more lies than Verizon, or vice versa? Maam, do you know the way to San Jose? Brother, can you spare a dime? TELL A FUNNY STORY. People like to laugh. When the conversation slows down, dredge up a joke. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain when he went to the dentist because he wanted to transcend dental medication? A few kneeslappers like that will keep the chatter going every time. COMPARE CELL PHONES AND COMPUTERS. If all other attempts fail to find a common ground to discuss, simply say, May I tell you about my new telephone, or my wonderful computer? That should get the conversational ball rolling at warp speed. Todays conversations are oriented not toward feelings, goals, and shared problems, but toward gadgets. Does your phone let you talk to people on Mars? No, but it allows me access to every document in the Library of Congress. Here, let me show you. At that point, instant friendships can take place. REMEMBER TO NOD AND SAY HMMMM. IS THAT SO? Conversation, ideally, is a twoway street. But in real life its often a monologue one speaker, one listener. If youre talking with a woman you hope to charm, or an executive you hope will hire you, its important to show that youre paying attention even if youre not. So be responsive, at least in a minimal manner. Nod your head every few seconds, and say Really? Is that so? My goodness. Hmmm. As long as the other person is doing all the talking, you dont have to worry about being a skilled conversationalist. As the Roman orator Cicero put it, Silence is one of the great elements of conversation. DONT BE AFRAID TO INTERRUPT. On the other hand, you should not hesitate to insert your own important (you hope) viewpoint into the conversation, even when the other guy is speaking. In todays world, interruptions are mandatory and rarely noticed. If you dont agree with that statement, try listening to any of TVs chatter shows or roundtables. On most of them, no one is allowed to complete a sentence. Of course, these gabfests should not be confused with actual conversation, whose highest forms usually involve a civilized give-and-take.Bob Driver is a former columnist with the Clearwater Sun.

The rear of the mailbox was partially blown out and the front was blown open. The event rattled homes windows across the street and a report to the sheriff was made plus pictures taken. The replaced mailbox and wood below it cost just under $45. The negatives this act created was greater than a disabled person or a minority person should worry about, in an area where they have lived for more than 25 years. Concealed guns on this street are being carried by many because of this act. The tubular nature of a mailbox could have allowed the explosive to shoot its stuff like a gun into the home across the street. Thankfully, this did not happen. The acts of Zimmerman were not good but dumb stupid stuff like this could get someone shot no matter the age of the person doing something or looking like they may be doing something. Residents are not trained like the law that is in your area. But having to carry a gun to put the garbage out at dusk or at night is happening on our street. So oh, say can you see the guns we carry in front of our homes or see the bomb in our mailbox? Marshall Deitch Palm HarborA sectarian civil war debacleEditor: The UN has said NO to your proposed adventure in Syria. The NATO (essentially) has said NO to your proposed adventure in Syria. The Islamic world has said NO to your proposed adventure in Syria. The G-20 has said NO to your proposed adventure in Syria. The citizens who elected you twice have said NO to your proposed adventure in Syria. So, Mr. President, what is it about NO that you dont understand? The N or the O? Why is the use of chemical arms more despotic than the slaughter that preceded it, and continues? Why are the millions of refugees created by this sectarian debacle any less important? Why, in this time of budget sequestration, are there funds to support this adventure in Syria? The U.S. should not become involved in the Syrian sectarian civil war debacle! The U.S. should not become involved in this religious conflict! The U.S. has alienated too much of the (Islamic) world to risk any more of the same! Mike MacDonald ClearwaterRaise speed limit for Keystone Road Editor: I was wondering if you or anyone knows why the speed limit on the new, improved, double lane Keystone Road is a measly 35 mph. all the way across? The drive from Eastlake to U.S. 19 is torture. I drove the limit the other day and seriously, I created a mile long back up with people honking and desperate to pass. The outside lane was passing me like I was sitting still. It was agonizing to poke along, but I followed the speed limit. As I was creeping, just past Patriots BBQ, a police officer was writing a ticket. Whats the deal? Did Florida finally make Keystone a double lane to create a speed trap? The limit was faster when it was a pot-holed, rickety two way. Why is the speed limit lowered to 35 on a new double lane? Respectfully, a disgruntled Keystone driver.

They know they ultimately arent responsible, but think: if only they didnt tell the person something before they were killed, or if only they told them to do something different, they wouldnt have died. Even though I have never lost a friend this way, I have seen what it does and how it affects a person. My brother was 29 years old when he lost his best friend, Frank. His friend was killed riding his motorcycle. An older man pulled right out from a stop sign and broadsided Frank. He was killed almost instantly. Frank, 44, was like a brother to my brother, and my family thought of him as part of our family. It was devastating on everyone, but especially my brother. The night Frank was killed he was going to meet my brother and his wife for a special dinner. They were going to tell him the sex of their first child. He was going to be the godfather. It was going to be a celebration. Before Frank left to go to the dinner, he called my brother and asked him what vehicle he should drive. Should he take his truck or his brand new Harley Nitrane? It was a beautiful night out, so my brother told him to take the Harley. Frank never showed up for the dinner. Instead, my brother got a call to go to the hospital. My brother for years, kept replaying the what if question in his mind over and over. What if I would have just told him to take the truck? He would still be alive. I saw how much my brother hurt because his friend had died. There are so many what ifs. We all have them. Every day we could have done something different or said something different. Do you ever pass an accident on the side of the road and think, I could have been in that accident, if I was a few minutes earlier. But this morning, my child right before we were about to leave had to use the bathroom, and I was mad because now we are running a few minutes late. It doesnt do us any good though to keep playing the scenarios over and over. We cant change what happens. I think sometimes theres just no good reason why someone dies accidently and at a young age. We have to have some reason for it, so we think what if. Sometimes we just have to live with what happens and try and make the best of the situation even though it can be hard. If we beat ourselves up, its not going to do any good. My brother told me his faith in God has helped him. He also said a 2002 movie Time Machine, which he watched one day on television, really made it sink in that no matter what, the accident was going to happen. In the movie, a mugger kills Dr. Alexander Hartdegens sweetheart. Hartdegen builds a time machine so he can prevent the mugger from killing his girl, but she dies by getting run over by a horse and buggy. He travels back in time several times trying to prevent her from getting killed and each time she always ends up dying, just a different way. My brother said even though it was just a movie, it helped him realize Frank was going to die, and it didnt matter what vehicle he told him to take. Its been ten years since Frank passed away, and we are all still heartbroken, but my brother realizes he didnt do anything wrong. My brother named his first child after his best friend.

They just do not show it that often.Vive la difference is a pithy celebration of the differences between the two most powerful forces in the world, the male force and the female force. At sea among free-ranging bottlenose dolphins, the male force differs dramatically depending on whether the female force is present or absent. Recently we glimpsed two private portrayals of bullpen politics in the absence of females. The first is ruefully common and the second is tenderly rare. But they were both humbling portrayals that cooperation, communication and congeniality characterize bottlenose bull buddies. An hour after dawn one early autumn day, the waters of the study were flat but not still. Tiny ripples covered their surface as if they were being jiggled gently from below instead of whisked lightly from above. Misty clouds covered most of the sky, which gave the waters a brightness against which dark dolphin forms stood out nicely. Near a short causeway, the water wrinkled in a curious way. Capt. John Heidemann swung around slowly so we could keep an eye on it. Several minutes later, the brawny form of bottlenose bull Brick surfaced. Brick visits our local waters annually in spring and summer. He is part of a super-alliance of bulls we call the Punch Buddies. Punch Buddies BNSB, Brick, Dollop, Grin, Nose, Square Scoop and Twin Dip all used to come to town over the same couple of days. Once here, however, they did not occur in the same groups but rather roamed the seas as pairs of bonded bulls. Consequently, it took some time to recognize that they constituted a coordinated coalition. It seems to me that they cooperate among themselves subtly, cooperating indirectly by not fighting each other rather than cooperating directly by helping their buddy win a fight. Brick surfaced several times to catch his breath from his long submergence as a second dolphin surfaced in the distance. I told Capt. Heidemann, That should be Nose. Within the minute, Nose and Brick joined each other across 100 yards of water and headed under the causeway side by side. On the other side, they surfaced twice; both times Brick arched up specially to glance at us. We waited for the next surface. After we waited several minutes, as before (I might add), we finally realized that the two bulls had ditched us. They had clearly coordinated their separation, convergence and departure. But it was the startlingly clear act of communicating with each other, Ditch em!, that took the sting out of their resolute departure. Do dolphins have a vocalization that literally means, Ditch em!? How did they coordinate their departure so succinctly? Kids growing up in the American suburbs between World War II and the Vietnam War know what Ditch em! means! I recall two reasons to ditch. One was the nasty neighbor lady who hated kids cutting across her lawn. When she glared from a window or doorway, the kids streaming across her lawn knew instinctively to ditch as fast as they could. The other reason was the creepy kid no one wanted to be around. Like the nasty neighbor lady, their mere appearance in the distance often triggered the regrettable response of ditching. I never appreciated the wordless coordination of ditching, but more importantly how we all understood where to meet up later, also without words. Sometime later at sea after being ditched, we again spied curious wrinkles among the distant wavelets and watched to see if they presaged dolphins. It took time, as it always does with bulls in the absence of females. Had we found Brick and Nose again? Eventually, substantial dorsal fins identified big bulls Schnoz and Xiphos. Schnoz is a major longterm player in our local waters. Unlike other mature bulls, he worked alone until last year when he began forming a bond with Xiphos, the burly stranger who first appeared last spring. Maybe the philosophers are right about love being as perennial as the grass. There are, after all, many ways to define love. In the case of bottlenose bulls, love is defined as a firm bond maintained with tender affection and even food sharing. At first, these giants were snoozing. With the lingering tempo of dozing dolphins, they swam about 5 feet apart like bonded bulls. Interestingly, they took the same route that Dolphin Watch reported last month, which suggested that dolphins use something like sunken streets. After a time, they roused to a half-awake state. They maintained their lingering tempo as they began tapping and toying with each other with unexpected tenderness. Oozing through super shallow waters and eventually under the same causeway where Brick and Nose ditched us, they muzzled each other. One would lean lightly against or pet the other by delicately drawing a fluke tip across him as they submerged. At times, a fluke tip briefly poking out of the surface showed that one of them had rolled onto his side, a posture that invites friendly interaction. Schnoz even displayed a unique sign of affectionate interest by briefly wearing a piece of grass. This kind of tender social travel is used by all manner of dolphins to sustain their affectionate bonds. It is rare to see among bulls, especially compared to being ditched, which is ruefully common. Both humbling portrayals argue that cooperation, communication and congeniality characterize bottlenose bull buddies.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

LARGO He comes from a land down under sort of. Colin Hay, former lead vocalist of the Australian band Men At Work, will perform Tuesday, Sept. 24, 7:30 p.m., at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive. Tickets start at $34.50. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. Sure, Hay is probably best known as the lead singer for Men At Work, the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 1980s with anthems like Down Under, Overkill and Who Can It Be Now? It was Men At Work that introduced Americans to the Aussie food paste and sandwich spread Vegemite. The group won a Grammy in 1983 for Best New Artist, beating out Asia, Jennifer Holliday, The Human League and Stray Cats. After three studio albums, Men At Work broke up in 1986. By that time, Hay was already hard at work on his first solo project, Looking for Jack. I made a solo rock album for Columbia called Looking for Jack in 1987, Hay said in his biography provided by Compass Records Group. When it wasnt commercially successful, I got the feeling that Columbia didnt know what to do with me, so I took up an offer from MCA Records, and Columbia let me go. Hay went back to his original musical inspirations for Wayfaring Sons, an album with Celtic folk influences for the MCA record. They dropped him soon after. Id moved to the States in and soon realized Id have to work harder for more modest returns, Hay said. I started my own label, Lazy Eye Records, and set about building a new audience, through writing, recording and touring. Its been hand-to-hand combat ever since, but nourishing work at the same time.Hays musical backgroundThough most people immediately think of Hay as Australian, he was actually born in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, Scotland. I wasnt in bands as a boy, but I was surrounded by music, Hay said. My mom and dad had a music shop, so there were instruments everywhere. The Hit Parade list came in every Monday morning, so obviously I knew The Beatles, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Screaming Lord Sutch, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Freddie And The Dreamers and, of course, Cliff Richard. I startedHay to play LCCFormer Men At Work lead vocalist takes the stage at Largo Cultural Center Photo courtesy of COMPASS RECORDS GROUPColin Hay, former lead vocalist of the Australian band Men At Work, will perform Sept. 24 at Largo Cultural Center. playing guitar when I was 12. Hay taught himself to play guitar. In the late 1960s, he immigrated to Australia with his parents. At 14 years old, he found himself in the middle of a thriving musical community in Melbourne. The late s and early s were remarkable, a golden age for Australian rock music, Hay said. There were lots of places to play, fantastic bands and lots of great musicians. A lot of them never saw the light of day, but there was uniqueness and brilliance. One of those musicians was guitarist Ron Strykert. Hay was impressed by his musicality and technique. The two started playing as an acoustic duo and Hay began writing songs.

Id always wanted to be in a great rock band. So, in the middle of 1979, we were joined by drummer Jerry Speiser, whom I met at university, and sax and flautist Greg Ham, whom Id known since schooldays. That combination of musicians along with bass player John Rees became Men At Work. Men At Work released three studio albums, including Business as Usual (1981), Cargo (1983) and Two Hearts (1985). The band broke up in 1986, but Hay reunited with Ham in 1996 to tour South America. Boasting a new lineup, Hay and Ham continued touring under the Men At Work moniker through 2000. The band even performed Down Under at the closing ceremony of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Men At Work performed infrequently after 2000, with one of the last reunions of Hay and Ham taking place in 2009 when they performed Down Under at the Australia Unites Victorian Bushfire Appeal Telethon. Sadly, Ham passed away in 2012. Recently, Hay celebrated thePhoto by MARTIN SMITHGathering Mercury, Colin Hays 2011 studio album, features serious songs full of optimism.

Marketing executives at Telstra, an Australian network provider, chose to use the new version of Down Under as the theme for their Olympic games advertising campaign in London. Hay is obviously proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, hes recorded 11 solo albums and is confident that his most recent release, Gathering Mercury, is the best of the lot.Gathering MercuryIn 2011, Colin Hay released his critically acclaimed album Gathering Mercury on 18-gram vinyl, followed by multiple performances at the hugely popular Bonnaroo Music Festival. Hay recorded and produced the ten songs on Gathering Mercury in his home studio in the hills of Topanga Canyon, with the help of drummer Randy Cooke, bassist Joe Karnes and guitarist Sean Woostenhulme, from his touring band; and friends like bass player Jimmy Earl and pianist Jeff Babko from Jimmy Kimmels band, drummer Charlie Paxson, Cuban percussionist Luis Conte and his wife Cecilia Noel on backing vocals. The arrangements feature Hays quizzical, instantly recognizable tenor supported by acoustic instruments and melodic electric guitar accents. The album was beautifully mixed by long time friend and composer/producer Chad Fischer. These are some of the strongest songs Ive ever written, Hay said. The loss of my father last year brought an unavoidable emotional contingent to writing and recording. I dont have a definitive belief in an afterlife, but I do feel like I had his help when I was working on this album, especially alone late at night, in the studio. Send Somebody, the albums first single, was co-written with guitarist/songwriter Michael Georgiades, who provides not only the main chord structure, but the understated solo that sets up the songs touching bridge. The hypnotic pop melody is augmented by Chad Fishers work on piano, xylophone and drums. The tune was inspired by a late night phone conversation. You call tech support one night around midnight and actually get a human being on the line, Hay said. The unexpected connection with a stranger is often easier to make than one with people you know. It brings up the longing for connection we all feel. Dear Father is a poignant Celtic folk-like tune with Hays 12-string guitar and melancholy vocal taking center stage. Cellist Oliver Kraus overdubbed the burnished string section. This song was written and recorded almost instantaneously, a gift from beyond, if you will, Hay said. The night my father died, I was in Glasgow on the river Clyde, about 20 streets away from where he was born. Theres some kind of bleak poetry in that, very bleak. Other Gathering Mercury standouts include Michael Georgiades Half a Million Angels, with sublime performances by all; the darkly humorous A Simple Song, which deals with the complexities of long term relationships with Hay on mandola and the buoyant vaudeville tune Where the Sky Is Blue, a song Hay imagined his father singing to his mother before they married. Despite the often-serious subject matter of songs featured on Gathering Mercury, theyre full of optimism. Its not a conscious thing and may have to do with the Scottish mentality, Hay said. We deal with darkness by shining a light on it. It doesnt diminish the charge of the feeling, it just makes it easier to deal with. Tampa Bay area fans will have an opportunity to hear some of the deeply affecting tunes Hay recorded for Gathering Mercury played live on Sept. 24 at Largo Cultural Center. Hay is equally at home in the studio or on stage, playing with either his band or solo acoustic. I started off playing acoustic; its my natural game, if you will, he said. Its the point I started from and may well be the point I end with. Its always what I return to. Photo courtesy of COMPASS RECORDS GROUPColin Hay will perform Sept. 24 at Largo Cultural Center.

The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces his release.

Kicking off the celebration, The Wizard of Oz 3D will be presented in the immersive IMAX 3D format and return to the big screen for an exclusive one-week engagement in IMAX theaters across North America beginning Sept. 20. Adapted from L. Frank BaumsOpening this weekend timeless childrens tale about a Kansas girls journey over the rainbow, The Wizard of Oz opened at Graumans Chinese Theater on Aug. 15, 1939. The film was directed by Victor Fleming (who that same year directed Gone with the Wind), produced by Mervyn LeRoy, and scored by Herbert Stothart, with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg. Dorothy was portrayed by a 16-year-old girl who quickly earned her reputation as the worlds greatest entertainer the incomparable Judy Garland.

Frank Morgan was seen in six different roles, including that of the wonderful Wizard of Oz himself.Battle of the Year 3DGenre: Drama and musical Cast: Josh Holloway, Laz Alonso, Josh Peck, Caity Lotz and Chris Brown Director: Benson Lee Rated: PG-13 Battle of the Year is an international dance crew tournament that attracts all the best teams from around the world, but the Americans havent won in 15 years. Los Angeles Hip Hop mogul Dante (Alonso) wants to put the country that started the Sport back on top. He enlists his hardluck friend Blake (Holloway), who was a championship basketball coach, to coach his team. Armed with the theory that the right coach can make any team champions, they assemble a dream team of all the best dancers across the country. With only three months until Battle of the Year, Blake has to use every tactic he knows to get twelve talented individuals to come together as a team if theyre going to bring the Trophy back to America where it started. The story is inspired by an actual competition in France. The following will open in limited release.

Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems almost perfect except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much.

Enough Said is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again.A Single ShotGenre: Drama Cast: Sam Rockwell, William H.

Academy Award-nominee Mark Ruffalo, Academy Award-winner Tim Robbins and Broadway star Josh Gad anchor a stellar ensemble that includes Academy Award-winner Gwyneth Paltrow, Joely Richard-Local bands van stolen in Chicago By TIFFANY RAZZANOCHICAGO A San Francisco band with Pinellas County roots ran into some bad luck while on tour in Chicago last week when their van and all of their equipment was stolen. After performing at Moes Tavern on Sept. 9, the members of FayRoy parked their van a 1997 maroon Chevy conversion van outside their friends mothers home, where they were staying, near Wicker Park. The next night, they took a cab to meet some friends downtown around midnight, and when they returned after 4 a.m. the van was gone. We saw the van before we left to meet our friends. We double checked that all the doors were locked, said Kyle Fournier, originally from Seminole. All of our stuff was in there. So were always trying to be as careful as we can with it. He added, It was quite a shock. We literally thought the cab had dropped us off on the wrong block. Initially, the band thought the van had been towed, but police told them it likely had been stolen. Last year, another band, Portugal the Man, had their band equipment stolen while they were in town playing Lollapalooza. Their van was eventually recovered, though the equipment was gone. In addition to the van, FayRoy lost all of their musical equipment and personal belongings, because they had gotten rid of their apartments before going on tour. Items lost include: two electric guitars a Fender Telecaster and a Fender Jazzmaster a bass guitar, two synthesizers, three amplifiers, a drum set, microphones and cables, a DSLR camera, film, a hard drive with photographs from the past 10 years, surfboards and clothing. The band is hopeful theyll eventually find their van, at the very least, Fournier said. In the meantime, theyve taken to social media to spread awareness of their situation and collect donations. For friends, family and fans back home in Pinellas, the best way they can assist the band is by buying their new self-titled album that was released in June, Fournier said. Fans are encouraged to visit fayroy.bandcamp.com and pay what they can for the album. Were trying to make our way back to San Francisco, Fournier said. Though, if theyre able to, they might borrow gear from musician friends and continue the tour, he added. People offer to lend us some gear. In addition to Fournier, a Seminole High School graduate, on keys and vocals, the band consists of Zack Hoag, guitar and lead vocals, from Indian Rocks Beach; Alex Gerhard, drums, from Largo; and Ryan Bambery, bass guitar, from Clearwater. The band, which takes its name from a historical beach cottage on Indian Rocks Beach, moved to San Francisco three years ago. FayRoy was recently in town, playing at New World Brewery on Aug. 3 as part of their tour. For more information about the band, visit www.fayroy.com. Photos courtesy of FAYROYAt left, San Francisco-based FayRoy is originally from Pinellas County. The band had its van, equipment and personal belongings stolen while on tour in Chicago earlier this month. Above, the 1997 maroon Chevy conversion van and some of the equipment stolen from FayRoy. OPENING, from page 3B Photo by THIBAULT GRABHERRAbove, Catherine Frot and Jean dOrmesson star in Haute Cuisine from the Weinstein Brothers. At right, Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow star in Thanks for Sharing, directed by Stuart Blumberg.son, Patrick Fugit and pop star Alecia Moore in her first film role. On the surface Adam (Ruffalo), an over-achieving environmental consultant, Mike (Robbins), a long-married small-business owner, and Neil (Gad), a wisecracking emergency-room doctor, have little in common. But all are in different stages of dealing with addiction. Confident and successful in his career, Adam is afraid to allow love back into his life, even if that means losing a chance to start over with smart, beautiful and accomplished Phoebe (Paltrow); Mikes efforts to control his wife, Katie (Richardson), and son, Danny (Fugit), as tightly as he does his impulses are tearing the family apart; and Neil is still deeply in denial when befriended by Dede (Moore), who has just begun to take her own small steps back to health. As they navigate the rocky shores of recovery, Adam, Mike and Neil become a family that encourages, infuriates and applauds each other on the journey toward a new life.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.
