TORRESLARGO Largo commissioners approved the final cost to build the hotly debated Data Center within Largo Central Park Oct. 1. The commission authorized a guaranteed maximum price of construction at $2,245,910 with a 4-2 vote. Biltmore Construction Company will build the 3,000-squarefoot building designed to house a main computer server room and data communications infrastructure. Construction is projected to take 259 days, with the project substantially completed by June 18, 2014, per the amended agreement with the company. Commissioners Curtis Holmes and Jamie Robinson voted against the measure. Mayor Pat Gerard, who has voted in favor of the construction in the past, was absent. I thought this was a bad idea when this was first proposed. My opinion has never changed, Holmes said. He argued again that the servers and equipment to be housed in the Data Center could be moved to the second floor of the citys Emergency Operations Center. We can do this for a fraction of $3 million. EOC has virtually nothing in it now, he said. He also said that given advances in technology, the information technology department likely wouldnt need a whole building to house its equipment. You give it a couple years, this is going to be obsolete, he said.

Governor Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 52 into law May 28. It prohibits a person from manually typing or entering multiple letters, numbers, symbols or other characters into a wireless communications device. This includes text messaging, emailing and instant messaging through smart phones or other like devices. Florida legislators enacted the new law in an attempt to improve roadway safety for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians, according to the bills text. The goal is to prevent crashes related to texting or emailing and driving. The bill includes exemptions for law enforcement, fire and emergency personnel using a device in performance of their duty, and motorists reporting an emergency, criminal, or suspicious activity to law enforcement or emergency personnel. Motorists are allowed to receive messages that are related to the operation or navigation of their vehicle; safety-related information, including emergency, traffic or weather alerts; data used primarily by the vehicle; or radio broadcasts. Motorists also can use wireless communications devices for navigation purposes. The devices can be used while a vehicle is off the roadway and not in motion. At any given daylight moment across America, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving, a number that has held steady since 2010, according to distraction.gov. Engaging in visual-manual subtasks (such as reaching for a phone, dialing and texting) associated with the use of hand-held phones and other portable devices increased the risk of getting into a crash by three times. Sending or receiving a text By SUZETTE PORTERSEMINOLE It was a packed house at the Digitorium on St. Petersburg Colleges Seminole campus Sept. 25, as area experts talked about the effect of changing flood insurance rules. Elected officials, insurance and real estate agents, as well as concerned citizens attended, all wanting more information on Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012. People who live along Pinellas Countys beaches, lakefronts, bays and other waterways, as well as owners of properties in low-lying inland areas are facing a nemesis as scary as any natural disaster. Changes in federal law are forcing flood insurance policy rates to spiral out of control. In this time of recovery after a devastating recession, many are worried that this manmade disaster will create a backward slide for property values, the real estate market and tourism industry. Foreclosures could increase as people become unable to pay their mortgage due to high flood insurance rates. Robin Sollie, president of the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce introduced the panel for the Sept. 25 program, including event moderator Ron Holehouse with Holehouse Insurance in St. Petersburg. Panelists were Patty Templeton-Jones from Wright Flood of St. Petersburg, Tim Fellabaum from Bankers Insurance in St. Petersburg, Jacob Holehouse from Holehouse Insurance, Doug Swain from RE/MAX in St. Pete Beach and Pinellas County Property Appraiser Pam Dubov. Fellabaum started the presentation with a brief explanation of Biggert-Waters, aka BW-12. He said passage of the act by Congress in 2012 was a really important thing because it continued the National Flood Insurance Program for five more years. In previous years, there had been starts and stops in NFIP, which caused a problem for policy holders and those needing flood insurance to satisfy mortgage requirements on a new home. BW-12 affects all the major components of the FEMA administered NFIP, including insurance rates, flood maps, grant programs and flood plain management plans. The purpose was to make the program, Texting while driving bannedFirefighters build hose kids Mannequins from recycled hose help department raise, save money By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Little Freddy DLargo and his fellow fire hose mannequins are on a mission. The kid-sized mannequins, designed and built by Largo firefighters, help teams in fire and rescue training, saving money on the purchase of expensive mannequins. The idea came to the A crew of Station 42, at Belcher Road and East Bay Drive, about a year ago, explained Lt. Warren Cargill. I mentioned it to the guys that we were just going to throw the hose away, Cargill said. They asked, Do we have any purpose for this? The hose, folded into a starfish shape and dressed with some clothes firefighters children had outgrown, mimics the weight and shape of a real child enough to be used in various training scenarios. I try to implement them every time we train, Cargill said. Whenever were using victims, we use them. Left out in the sun, the mannequins will absorb heat enough to show up on thermal imaging cameras firefighters use to search out bodies in a smoky building. When you go into zero visibility, its easier to find an adult than a child. Unfortunately, children tend to hide from us; theyre afraid, Cargill said. The fire-hose kids can stand in for purchased mannequins, saving the department thousands of dollars. The two mannequins firefighters built initially have held up in more extreme training. The firefighters at Station 42 serve as Largos technical response team, helping in more difficult scenarios where the victim needs rescue from a trench, at a high angle, from swift water, a structural collapse or a confined space. Theyre great we throw them under cars and buses, Cargill said. Theyve been thrown in a trench, buried in dirt, thrown in the Intracoastal for search and rescue in the water. Theyve been around quite a bit.

4A County Leader, October 3, 2013takes a drivers eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent at 55 mph of driving the length of an entire football field, blind. Floridas law makes texting while driving a secondary offense, meaning law enforcement cant stop a vehicle just because a driver is observed in the unlawful use of a communications device. However, a driver can be ticketed for the offense if pulled over for another offense, such as speeding or reckless driving. Motorists who violate the texting while driving ban will be guilty of a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a nonmoving violation. A motorist who is caught disobeying the ban a second time within five years will be guilty of a noncriminal traffic violation punishable as a moving violation. Violations of the texting and driving ban will result in points assigned to a motorist drivers license, which can be suspended when 12 points are accumulated. Unlawful use of a wireless communication device resulting in a crash costs six points. A moving violation committed in conjunction with the unlawful use of a wire communications device within a school safety zone will cost a motorist an additional two points. If a driver is involved in a crash resulting in death or personal injury, records from a wireless device that may have been in use at the time are admissible as evidence of wrongdoing. Distraction.gov lists several activities that could be considered driver distractions, including texting, using a cell phone or smartphone, eating, drinking, talking to passengers, grooming, reading (including maps), using a navigation system and watching a video. But, because text messaging requires visual, manual and cognitive attention from the driver, it is by far the most alarming distraction, the website concludes. which is deeply in debt, financially stable, Fellabaum said. NFIP has about 5.5 million flood insurance policies in the United States. More than 2 million, or 37 percent, of those policies are in Florida. The second highest state is Texas with 600,000 policies. Since NFIPs inception in 1968, premiums were able to keep pace with the cost of claims. In 2005, with Hurricane Katrina, everything changed, Fellabaum said. Cost of claims was $16 billion. In 2008, Hurricane Ike added $2.6 billion. Tropical Storm Debby cost $41 million in claims. Then in 2012, superstorm Sandy tacked on $7 billion. In 2012, NFIP collected $3.5 million in premiums not nearly enough to cover the costs of Sandy or put toward paying down the debt. Fellabaum said some are concerned that if a major storm hit this year, Congress might deny NFIPs request for additional funding. NFIP doesnt collect enough to pay for its losses, Templeton-Jones said. She said prior to Katrina, NFIP had been forced to borrow money from the federal government to cover claims and had always paid it back with interest. Now, the debt is too high to retire, TempletonJones said. Everyone agrees change is needed to sustain the program. When BW-12 first passed, everyone thought five years would give time to work on needed changes, she said. Now that the second phase of the Act is about to take place, Oct. 1, people are finding out that affordability (of flood insurance) is a huge, huge issue. She said an affordability study ordered by Congress had not been completed. It was recently discovered that there is not enough funding to get it done. She said many are asking that implementation of the changes be halted until the study can be done. This is not a Florida-only problem, TempletonJones said, as she urged the audience members to reach out to legislators nationwide. Pinellas County has more subsidized flood insurance policies than any county in the state with more than 50,000 or 35 percent of all NFIP polices. Dubov, aka the grim reaper, as she said some are calling her because she is relaying so much bad news, explained that the premium price for flood insurance could have a devastating impact on the real estate market. I thought something would be coming in the 11th hour to make it OK, he said. This is a very scary situation. Holehouse said no one ever imagined that the law would retroactively change building codes to cause financial harm. This is a longtime problem and cant be fixed in five years, he said. We need to slow it down, talk about it and bring some intellect to the table. Dubov said many people believe this is a problem of rich property owners out on the beach. But, more subsidized policies are on inland properties than on the beach, she said. Of the 33,000 single-family homes in Pinellas with subsidies, more than 2,500 receive property tax exemptions as widows or widowers. Thousands more receive low income, veterans and disabled tax exemptions. She said 20,000 of the homes were located inland and a whole bunch has median values under $100,000. This is our whole communitys problem, she said. Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce has taken a lead in communications efforts to the community about BW-12. For more information, visit www.tampabaybeaches.com/chamber/government_affairs.aspx. Information is also available from a link on the front page of Pinellas Countys website, pinellascounty.org. The U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill delaying implementation of the act for one year. Legislation also is pending in the Senate. If the Senate does not act to delay the bill, as of Oct. 1, owners with subsidized policies on property that has experienced severe or repeated flooding will see their bills increase by 25 percent annually until the rate reflects true risk. Owners of business/nonresidential properties in a Special Flood Hazard Area also will see rates increase by 25 percent annually beginning Oct. 1. In addition, higher rates will affect any property that is sold and any policy that lapses. Severe, repeated flood losses will trigger rate hikes. Higher rates also will be charged for any new policies. All policies will pay a 5 percent surcharge to fund a reserve. Policyholders of with subsidized policies on nonprimary/secondary residences in Special Flood Hazard Area received a 25 percent increase on their rates Jan. 1, 2013. Those rates also will increase until rates reflect true risk.

Subjects ran the gamut from traffic signals, sidewalks, trails, roadway expansions, bus service, light rail and taxes. Sarah Ward, interim executive director of the countys Metropolitan Planning Organization, said plans were underway that consider all areas and needs countywide. We recognize that not one plan fits all, she said, which is the impetus behind including a full range of options for transportation throughout Pinellas. Julie Ward-Bujalski, city of Dunedin Vice Mayor, MPO board member and PSTA board member, talked about the outreach being done as part of Greenlight Pinellas. She said a lot of public engagement had been occurring through meetings with local organizations. Brad Miller, executive director for Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority, said he had talked to at least 100 different clubs, as had Ward-Bujalski and Jeff Danner, member of the St. Petersburg City Council, chair of the PSTA board, MPO member and the fourth panelist at the Sept. 24 eTownHall. People want a growing, thriving Pinellas County, Miller said. They want what is best for the community. He said people seem to understand the Greenlight plan and the need to invest in transit. Most of the questions he hears are about when the plan would be put into action, how it will be paid for with taxpayer money ad valorem tax or sales tax. Danner said people want more transportation options, instead of being forced to have to own cars, even multiple cars, to get to destinations. Residents were able to ask the panel questions or make comments via the phone, a blog and Twitter. One person wanted to know if it was possible to take a bus to the airport on the weekend. The answer was no. However, Ward-Bujalski said part of the transportation plan included regional connections with Hillsborough, Pasco and Manatee counties and beyond. Miller talked about the need to expand transportation services later at night. He said that currently most buses end service at 6 p.m. You can get to work or a baseball game (on a bus), but you cant get home, he said. The Greenlight plans calls for most buses to run to 10 p.m. and some to continue service to 2 a.m. It (bus service) has to be there when people need it, he said. He said the plan included layers of solutions depending on needs. One example was to provide more express bus service to employment centers and parking lots where people could park and ride. Ward talked about PSTAs new Flex Routes in north county that allowed buses to deviate off their regular routes to pick up people at their residence. There was a real need in that area, she said. She said there is a great demand for service along the beaches and late night service to entertainment venues. She said people want a way to get to Pinellas County from the airport in Tampa without having to have a car. Current plans call for a light rail system to run from Clearwater through the Gateway area to St. Petersburg and eventually on to Tampa. Ward-Bujalski said people in north county would be able to take limited stop buses to connect with rail lines. Danner said the business community is interested in improving Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County transportation experts answer questions during a Sept. 24 eTownHall meeting.

Improved transportation would be an attraction for businesses to move to Pinellas, he said. He said transportation improvements were vital to keeping and attracting young people. Young people dont want to have to have a car, he said. They want to get to entertainment venues and work without a car. In many part of the United States, social networking revolves around transit hubs another goal of the Greenlight plan. We want a network of options to get to all parts of the county, Danner said. Len Ciecieznski, information specialist with Pinellas County Communications, moderated the MPO-sponsored event and asked the questions coming in, including one about the wisdom of spending money on light rail. Miller said the Greenlight plan is all about creating a different type of transportation system that could affect land use without changing the complexion of existing single-family neighborhoods. He said over time, development around transit hubs and corridors resulted in areas where there was no need for parking lots and residents could get to where they wanted to go without having a car. Danner said the cost to build a light rail system was estimated at between $1.5 billion and $1.7 billion, which would pay for the rail, improved buses service to get to the rail lines and operating costs for 30 years. This plan is not just about light rail, Ward-Bujalski added. She said about 35 to 45 percent of planned spending was toward the rail with the rest going to improve bus service and other transportation options, such as trolley service, which has shown to be very successful on nights and weekends. The Greenlight plan would expand the trolley service to seven days a week, providing a lot more access to the fun stuff you want to do. Miller pointed out that parking was limited on the beaches and tourists were benefiting from the new PSTA beach trolley. Greenlight would expand that service as well. Theres not a trolley everywhere in Pinellas County, but just because theres not doesnt mean you dont do it (have trolley service), Ward-Bujalski said of a question from someone who lives outside the area planned for light rail. She said the beauty of the Greenlight plan is to have the right transportation in the right areas and have it all connect. Were not repurposing anyones community, Danner said. Redevelopment will occur where it needs to in underutilized areas, near employment centers and activity centers. He said the plan allows for about 80 percent of the countys population to have access to transportation services. Were looking at the uniqueness of a community and responding to it, he said. Miller took on the question about funding. He explained that PSTA currently is funded by ad valorem taxes that bring in about 50 percent of the agencys $60 million budget. The remainder of funding comes from fares and grants from state and federal entities. About 25 percent of costs are paid for by fares, which he said is more funding than most transit systems bring in from fares. No system in the world is funding entirely from fares, he said. Pinellas County voters will have a referendum question on the November 2014 ballot asking them approve a switch from ad valorem taxes to a 1-cent sales tax to fund transportation. Miller said a penny sales tax would double the funding available from taxes, plus PSTA would still have funding from fares and grants, meaning money would be available to make big transportation improvements. Ward answered the question about benefits to seniors by saying more money into the system would allow more services so county residents could age in place and still get out into the community. Miller added that statistics show that people outlive their ability to drive by about seven years. Improved transportation system would allow seniors to still get around. Ward-Bujalski pointed out that Florida and Pinellas County has a saturation of seniors. Just because they cant drive doesnt mean they cant walk and get around. This would help people keep from withering away inside their homes, she said. Ward answered the question of how long will it take? She said current plans look out to the year 2040 with phases of work tied to revenue streams. She said complex projects take time to complete, pointing to the U.S. 19 improvements that began in 2009 and are expected to be complete by 2014. Complex projects take a long time to build. Were looking at phasing as effectively as we can, she said. Miller said Pinellas needed to make sure it had a transportation system that could serve the younger generation and their needs while preserving neighborhoods of single-family homes. One caller asks about how the plan could improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Thats a priority throughout the county, Danner said, which he said was addressed in the transportation plan, as well as work happening now to improve safety. Miller seems confident that the transportation plan can work in Pinellas. Twenty-six cities in the U.S. have a multi-modal transit system (bus and rail) and 25 of 26 are in the process of expanding, he said. We need to get people to their destinations with whatever mode of transportation we can provide, Danner said. Its about where you live and what you need.

Scam workshop offeredLARGO Operation S.A.F.E., or Stop Adult Financial Exploitation, will host Be Scam Smart, a free workshop for seniors, their families and caregivers Thursday, Oct. 24, 10 to 11:30 a.m., at the Largo Community Center, 400 Alt. Keene Road. Registration begins at 9 a.m. The workshop is designed to inform, empower and protect Floridas seniors from financial scams and fraud. Participants will learn about the psychology of a scam, how to spot fraudulent behavior, common scams that target seniors and how to fight identity theft. The workshop, brought in partnership with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, is part of Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwaters On Guard for Seniors initiative. For more information and to register, visit www.MyFloridaC FO.com/SAFE or call 877-MY-FL-CFO (693-5236).Scam warningCLEARWATER Clearwater police warn the public of a new phone scam coming from a 978 Massachusetts area code. The caller identifies himself or herself as being in contact with a relative of yours who needs money immediately and that failure to wire the money will result in harm coming to the relative. Sarasota County law enforcement has been getting reports of this, so it could become a problem here as well. Police remind the public that they should not trust anyone who calls them out of the blue like this and to not give out any money in such a situation. If anyone has questions about this or any other scam, call the fraud hotline at 562-4424, or if you have been the victim of a crime, call 562-4242. As long as this woman sends text messages standing beside her vehicle, shes immune from the state of Floridas new texting and driving ban that began Oct. 1. TEXTING, from page 1A CRISIS, from page 1AShe said countywide there are homes people have lived in for a very long time, who have paid off their mortgage and have no flood insurance. They are fine today. They wont have a rate increase, she said. But if they sell, theyll need to find a cash buyer or someone who can pay the full actuarial premium based on risk. Many in the audience wanted to know how they find out the risk of their property. They best advice from the panel was to invest in an elevation certificate, which will be required to acquire or renew a flood insurance policy. Ron Holehouse said an elevation certificate costs around $150 to $200, upwards to $400 currently, but cautioned he had heard talk that the price could be going up due to increased demand. A number of new property owners are being caught in a scenario that Templeton-Jones said no one anticipated. BW-12 was signed into law July 6, 2012. Every flood insurance policy written since that date is considered new, and thus will be billed at actual-risk rates beginning Oct. 1. Fellabaum said there were 1,400 businesses and 5,200 homes purchased after July 6, 2012 in Pinellas. They didnt know, he said. Dubov said she had heard many scary stories about rate hikes. She said an insurance agent at a BW-12 forum in Indian Rocks Beach told her she had a client with a property built prior to 1972 with flood insurance rates jumping to $71,000. Dubov said policyholders could reduce premiums some by dropping coverage on the properties contents and increasing the deductible. Assessing value on properties in flood zones is going to be a challenge for next year, Dubov said. She encourages residents to get an elevation certificate and bring it to the property appraisers office so an accurate assessment can be made. She said people might be reluctant to bring in certificates if they think the elevations are too low. The point of concern is the elevation of the floor of the lowest living area. She said she has had complaints from people that if she devalues their property, it will cause them to go back underwater on their mortgages. Folks, I have to respond to the market, she said. She added that the property appraisers office did not have information on individual properties within FEMA flood zones. She advised people to contact FEMA or their insurance agent. Swain talked about the real estate market and said people were already backing out of contracts. They dont want to make a move, he said. It is the fear of not knowing. He said when information about BW-12 started coming out, he wasnt concerned.

Above right, Doug Swain from Preferred RE/MAX in St. Pete Beach says changes mandated by Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012 are already having an effect on the real estate market. Swain gave several examples during the seminar. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

The Excelsior designation is the highest recognition available through the CFA. It is reserved for agencies that demonstrate continued excellence in law enforcement accreditation. To achieve Excelsior status, the agency must have received initial accreditation through the commission and then five successful re-accreditation assessments without conditions. In 1999, the CFA accredited the Largo Police Department, with reaccreditation occurring every three years. The CFA re-accreditation comes on the heels of the departments Aug. 3 re-accreditation with excellence award through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, or CALEA.

Tanya Pistillo of the Wandering Star Art Gallery thought the idea of repurposing fire hose was really crafty. Theres not a lot of funding going around for a lot of things so I stepped in and asked if there was some way, I could help them raise money, she said. Along with creating and selling art from the recycled fire hose, Pistillo suggested the firefighters make more hose kids and put them up for adoption as a way of raising money for the fire departments public education fund. The firefighters of Station 42 have made five more mannequins to be auctioned off during a reception on Saturday, Nov. 9, 6 to 10 p.m., at the Wandering Star Art Gallery, 220 West Bay Drive. The reception, a partnership with the Downtown Largo Merchants Associationand the Largo Professional Firefighters Local 2427, will feature all firefighter-related art. The proceeds will be split to benefit both the Largo Fire Explorers program and the Childrens Burn Foundation. Im kind of proud of my crew for coming up with this idea. Its pretty useful for us, Cargill said. Hopefully itll take off, with the fundraiser too. Cargill said that the hose kids are not toys. Theyre safe, but we just want to make sure that the kids dont get a hold of them and play, he said. He voiced enthusiasm for the unions new partner. Im looking forward to doing more with the downtown business district. I think its long overdue, he said. The Nov. 9 reception will be held after the a Community Festival at Ulmer Park, held second Saturdays starting this month. The first community festival, organized by the Downtown Largo Merchants Association, will be Saturday, Oct. 12, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Ulmer Park, 301 W. Bay Drive. The event will feature live music, food trucks, arts and crafts, games, face painting and raffle prizes. Call Tanya Pistillo at 465-8558.

TORRESLARGO Fairy tale characters converged on the Largo Cultural Center Sept. 28 to support local performing arts. The Suncoast Performing Arts Foundations 17th anniversary gala was themed Once Upon a Time and attracted an array of colorful costumes from the community supporters who attended. The black tie event featured dinner from The Stuffed Mushroom and Indulge Catering, a silence and live auction, dancing and, of course, a show. Largo Cultural Centers inhouse theater company, Eight OClock Theatre, performed the title show of the evening. Once Upon a Time told the story of Princess Rona, who searches for her groom, Prince Daniel of Largothia, kidnapped by the magic-wielding antagonist Nefaria just returned from her exile to Hillsborough. Along the journey, she encounters various fairy tale characters and their accompanying music who try to help her in her search. The simple plot of two-act production showed off the theater companys proficiency at musical numbers from a host of fairy-tale based shows, including Rodgers and Hammersteins Cinderella, Into the Woods and Wicked as well as Disney musicals The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Sleeping Beauty. The evening also honored dedicated supporters of the Suncoast Performing Arts Foundation through the Tonne Awards.

LARGO, from page 1ACommissioner Robert Murray said it was important to protect the citys infrastructure. The Data Center would be 40 feet above sea level, out of the flood plain, include an emergency electric generator fuel enough for five days of operation. The building also is designed to withstand hurricane winds, featuring a cast-in-place concrete framed structure with masonry infill and a structural steel-framed roof with standing-seam metal roof panels. I think the Data Center is desperately needed, Murray said. As we continue doing software upgrades and everything else as we go along, it just continually expands. I personally dont see how its going to decrease in size as we become more dependent (on technology) in all city functions. The total cost of the project is $3.1 million, which includes the design, permitting, furniture and new equipment. The Data Center will be built behind the Largo Feed Store within Largo Central Park, moved from its originally proposed location due to complaints from nearby residents.Union agreements ratifiedLargo commissioners approved two changes to agreements with its unions Oct. 1. First, they ratified an agreement with the Communications Workers of America Local 3179, giving a 2.5 percent pay increase to represented city employees. The agreement includes increases to the minimum and maximum pay range and adjustments to positions in fleet maintenance and recreation.Second, the city agreed to a wage reopener with Sun Coast Police Benevolent Association, offering the same 2.5 percent pay increase. The new agreement also addresses numerous inequalities in the pay plan, using the salary saved from a recent retiree and increasing the pay for police officers and sergeants with a minimum of eight and 10 years of service, respectively, among other adjustments. In other business, the city commission approved the first reading to amend agreements with the following entities: Dockside Investors: removing a requirement that the apartment complex to be built on the former Briarwood RV Park be market-rate housing, due to legal reasons. The developer still intends to build 260 market-rate apartments. Florida Department of Transportation: allowing the parks division to use $200,000 left in the multi-year agreement to landscape the medians at the interchange of U.S. 19 and East Bay Drive. The second hearing of both amendments will be held Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Largo City Hall. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

The campaign raises funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which is a recipient of Charity Navigators highest fourstar rating for nine consecutive years. The campaign means everything to me, said Tiffany Hutto in a press release. Hutto is a Hungry Howies Distributing associate who is a one-year breast cancer survivor. If my story inspires one woman to get a mammogram, it brings me hope. Early detection saved Huttos life. The key to recovery is support, Hutto said. When I was going through my treatment, my co-workers shaved their heads to show their love and support. That meant the world. Cancer makes you think about how much time you have left and what you want to do with it. Dont dream its over. Dont you dare, said Andrea Adair, who is a Hungry Howies associate and a two-time breast cancer survivor. Adair volunteers extensively and will be featured in the book about Bodies of Courage. She is passionate about sharing her story of early detection and post-mastectomy options and participates in numerous breast cancer causes including Love, Hope & Pizza. During the month of October, Hungry Howies will go pink with large pizzas being served in pink boxes and the NBCF logo. For every story shared on Facebook, every new Facebook fan, every picture tagged #LOVEHOPEPIZZA and every large pizza purchase, Hungry Howies will make a donation to NBCF. Supporters also may purchase $1 Love, Hope & Pizza wristbands with all proceeds going to NBCF. Tote bags made of recycled vinyl from 2012 Love, Hope & Pizza billboards have been produced and may be purchased from G2 GreenGear with a donation being made to NBCF. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer 33 years ago, I knew little about the disease, said Janelle Hail, NBCF Founder and CEO. I was forced to make a decision about my health without knowing my options. Fortunately, early detection saved my life, and now thanks to the customers and employees of Hungry Howies, we are ensuring that women across America are educated about breast cancer and dont have to face it alone. In the last four years, Hungry Howies has raised nearly $800,000 for breast cancer research and hopes to surpass $1 million this year.Horse and Jockey Pub celebrates renovationSOUTH PASADENA A ribbon-cutting ceremony, set for Saturday, Oct. 5, noon, will celebrate the grand opening of the newly renovated Horse and Jockey British Pub, 1155 Pasadena Ave. S.

PETERSBURG A USF St. Petersburg graduate student has won third prize in a national essay contest sponsored by the Jane Austen Society of North America. Ashlie Flannigan, who is pursuing a master of liberal studies, was honored at the societys general meeting in Minneapolis, Minn. Her essay, The Empirical Austen: Finding Nature and Nurture in Pride and Prejudice, was entered in the graduate division and was one of more than 200 submissions. She received a $250 scholarship and a membership in the Jane Austen Society. The essay explores the idea of natured and nurtured traits and characteristics as witnessed among the friends and families in Jane Austens Pride and Prejudice. It also looks at the language Austen uses to delineate the two influences on behavior and personality. Flannigans essay grew out of a course by Amy Robinson, visiting assistant professor of English literature, called, Selected BritishStudent places in national essay contest www.TBNweekly.comAuthors: Jane Austen. It is the second time one of her students in that course has been honored in the Jane Austen Society essay contest. April Sopczach, who graduated from the English Education graduate program, placed second in the 2011 contest. Flannigan has been a Jane Austen fan since she first read Pride and Prejudice as a teenager and enjoyed delving into more scholarly aspects of her work. I think its whats underneath the stories, what she was trying to do as a woman, Flannigan said.

10A Viewpoints Leader, October 3, 2013Liz Cheney, political pundit and daughter of a former vice president, might have trouble unseating three-term GOP Sen. Mike Enzi in the Wyoming primary next year. On vacation in Casper last week, I had dinner at Boscos, where owner Susan Bosco proudly displays signed photos of local political luminaries including Enzi, Sen. John Barrasso, Gov. Matt Mead and Dick Cheney himself, Republicans all but there was no head shot of Liz Cheney. Every town has a restaurant like Boscos, GOP strategist Liz Brimmer noted, and its not just about a face on the wall. Enzi has won re-election with more than 70 percent of the vote twice because he truly represents Wyoming. As for Cheneys aspirations to represent Wyoming, said Brimmer, this is all so recent. Cheney has had a rough ride since moving from Virginia to the Equality State last year. In August, the Casper Star-Tribune reported that Cheney improperly received a state resident fishing license. (She had lived in the state for 72 days, not the 365 consecutive days required by law.) Worse, her application wrongly claimed that she had lived in Wyoming for a decade. Thats the kind of thing that really makes people mad, observed C.J. Box, author of a mystery series that features a Wyoming game warden/sleuth. Thats kind of sacrosanct in Wyoming. You cant just make that error. When Angus M. Thuermer Jr. of the Jackson Hole Daily reported that Cheney had to file a $220 bond for filing a false statement, blogger Jim Romenesko reported, Cheney told a tea party gathering that the papers staff suffered from liberal bias and newspapers are dying, and thats not a bad thing. Strike 2. Cheney had to walk back that quote with a Facebook posting that praised Wyomings hardworking objective journalists. To Box, it was a rookie Wyomingite mistake. Her campaign rejects any notion that Cheney is new to the state. Shes a fourth-generation Wyomingite, spokeswoman Celeste Colgan maintained in a statement, who split her time between Washington and Wyoming since her father was elected to Congress in 1978. The campaign positions Cheney, 47, as the true conservative in the race, with the experience, values and roots to represent Wyoming well. I would add that Enzi, 69, doesnt own his seat for life. Others have every right to challenge him, including in the Republican primary. But when the challenger hasnt been a fulltime Wyoming resident since childhood and she owes her high profile and ability to raise campaign cash largely to her father, locals might want to remind the Cheneys: Wyoming is an oil-and-gas state, not nepotistic MSNBC. Money raising has always been a problem for me, Enzi told The New York Times in July as Cheney was about to throw her cowboy hat into the ring. At the time, Enzis campaign had a quaint $488,000 in the bank. Cheney can raise beaucoup bucks and turn the Wyoming primary into an ugly, bigmoney slugfest. In this red state, whoever wins the Republican primary wins the general election. The only way Cheney wins is by turning voters against Enzi. I would be surprised if it went all the way to the primary, said Box, secure in the belief that his neighbors dont want an ugly primary. That might make people more angry.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com. Visiting a restaurant has several steps. One of the first is to find a parking space. If you have a handicapped sticker for your car, youll have no problem. Most restaurants have twice as many handicapped spaces as they ever need. Researchers tell us that on April 20, 1997, at a Dennys in Harrisburg, Pa., all the handicapped parking slots were filled. This is the only time in restaurant history this has happened. Another aspect of dining out is to discover that all restaurant greeters know how to count. As you and your date enter, the greeter smiles, inspects you and says, Two? If you are with a party of four, he/she looks at your group and says, Party of four? All my life I have wanted to reply, Yes, but we have 16 friends arriving in half an hour. Theyll be roaring drunk and riding polo ponies, just to see what the greeter might say. But, coward that I am, I always remain silent and go to my designated seat. Dont be afraid to state your choice of a table or a booth. A table seat exposes you to the stares of other diners, but it gives you a better chance to watch the TV screen instead of facing your unshaven, yawning husband for the next hour. A booth is more physically intimate, but it increases the odds of your having to listen to the Texan in the next booth regale his buddies with the story about the red-headed pole dancer in Waco, as he (the Texan) bounces his 265-pound body against the back of your seat just as you ingest the first spoonful of your clam chowder. Next, your server will arrive with menus and an introduction. My name is Andrew (or Elaine) and Ill be your server today. Can I offer you a drink, to start with? If youre hung over or have lots of money you should order a drink. It will settle your nerves, but will cost you anywhere from five to fifteen bucks. In the 1960s, when I quit drinking, you could buy a beer for a dollar and a martini for two dollars. No more. But today if you dont immediately order an alcoholic beverage, your server may disappear for 15 minutes, as he/she attends to drinking customers who will probably be bigger tippers than pinchy-faced teetotalers (thats you.) Studying the menu is a critical part of the restaurant adventure. The typical menu gives as many as 1,822 choices, grouped in categories that may include starters, steaks, salads, chicken, fish, pasta, vegan, seniors, Mexican, desserts, side dishes, Weight Watchers, and sushi. The latest trend in many restaurants lets you choose two or three different entrees, instead of just one. This encourages the customer to believe that the new list price ($16) for the selections is a bargain. Its not. Its an inflationary scam meant to screw the customer. When two or more diners are seated, they give up their original identity such as Joe Jones and wife or the hospital luncheon group. They immediately become you guys. Thats how almost every server in the USA refers to his/her customers. Are you guys ready to order? I have some great recommendations for you guys. Im not sure how the you-guys custom started, but its harmless and quite democratic even an all-female table of customers is known as you guys. Another common practice is for restaurants to serve customers twice as much food as they can eat. Thats because food is the smallest expense the owner will bear. If you dine out several times a week and eat everything you are served, you will die six years earlier than you otherwise might have. Its important to be kind to your server. She (or he) is pursuing one of the toughest, lowest-paid occupations known. If your food is slow in coming, or is not prepared as well as it could be, its seldom your servers fault. The defect is usually in the kitchen or in the office of the owner, who has hired three fewer servers than the restaurant should have. You should routinely tip the server at least 20 percent of the bill. If you are on a tight budget, skip ordering coffee or iced tea (at $2.50 a glass) and add the savings to the tip. Avoid noisy restaurants. If you cannot easily hear what your dinner companion is saying, you are in the wrong place. If the restaurant requires its servers to drop everything and go sing happy birthday to a customer, leave the restaurant at once and never go back. These are only a few suggestions. If you agree with all of them, Id be surprised.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

He claimed that using the phrase tax swap was not proper because, in his case, he would be paying more if the current PSTA property tax were replaced by a 1 percent sales tax. However, for many Pinellas County residents that funding change would mean lower taxes to support a vastly improved transit system in our community. Here are some of the facts that the letter writer omitted and people need to know: A 1 percent sales tax for transit would not be levied on groceries or medical costs. A complete and long list of exemptions can be found here: dor.myflorida.com/dor/forms/2010/dr46nt.pdf. The 1 percent sales tax would be capped at $5,000 so if you were to make a large purchase such as a car, the most that could be levied is an additional $50. How the tax affects people is on a case-by-case basis depending upon income, property value and spending habits. To see how it will affect your family, you can use the IRS Sales Tax Deduction Calculator found here as a guide: www.irs.gov/Individuals/Sales-Tax-Deduc tion-Calculator. Youll have to divide the final number by 7 (our current sales tax rate) to get your final number. Based on my TRIM notice, income and home value, which is right at the median home value for Clearwater (where I live), my family and I would be paying about $24 a year more under the proposed funding change, nothing near the $300 increase that the letter writer claims. The bulk of PSTAs current funding comes from the property taxes levied on Pinellas Countys 434,104 parcels. Switching to a 1 percent sales tax will increase the tax base to the entire county population (approximately 921,000) PLUS the 5.4 million tourists and visitors who enjoy our wonderful community every year. I encourage this writer and all residents of our fine County to visit www.GreenlightPinellas.com to learn the facts about the transportation plan, its funding proposal, background data, studies and potential impact on Pinellas County no matter what voters decide in 2014. Bob Lasher External affairs officer Pinellas Suncoast Transit AuthorityCartoon inaccurateEditor: I dont get the political cartoon in the Sept. 19 issue of the Beach Bee. It seems to imply that President Obama is in the pocket of the Russian president. Why would that be? President Obama has gotten Putins ally Assad to admit for the first time that he has chemical weapons. And the president says the U.S. retains the option to strike Assad if the Syrian reneges on his promise to allow U.N. inspectors to locate and eventually destroy the chemical weapons. Or is Obama in Putins pocket because the New York Times published an op-ed article by Putin? I just dont get it. It looks like the cartoonist doesnt follow the guidelines you give for letter writers and which should be valid for all editorial content refrain from making unsubstantiated allegations. Allegations along the lines of the president is a mini-Putin is what weve come to expect from factions who dont mind sabotaging our American government and our economy if they can just prevent Obama from being successful. Our community deserves better. Surely you can choose more accurate cartoons and maybe something from closer to our home than Arkansas.Arthur HermanBelleair BeachRepublican Party supports extreme policiesEditor: There is a pervasive belief in this country that our two major political parties are diametrically opposed in every respect. That each party is equal promotes extreme, fringe policies, thus are equally at fault when nothing gets done. This fallacy assumes that over time, the Left has moved further to the left, and that the Right has moved further to the right. The problem with this view is that the true fringe views are far more pervasive in the Republican Party than in the Democratic. There are countless examples of politicians from the Republican party pushing fringe agendas. In particular, we can look to the recent version of the Farm Bill passed in the U.S. House of Representatives. Hoping to end the SNAP and WIC programs, conservatives slashed the food stamp program by $40 billion. By the reasoning explained earlier, this would imply the Democrats are actively seeking to expand food stamps such that all people are given their food by the government. This reasoning assumes that the Democrats are fighting tooth and nail for the government to seize control of agricultural/food industry and equally distribute food to the populace. Obviously, this is a ludicrous assumption. There are no Democrats demanding that all people receive equal food as distributed by the government. No progressive/left activists, commentators or politicians would support such a ridiculous and unconstitutional measure. An identical claim can be made for the Republican position on welfare, unemployment benefits, gun control and certain aspects of Social Security. Democrats do not hold the polar opposite view on any of these issues. Supporting the welfare program is not the same as demanding the government ensure all people are given jobs (i.e: that the government be the sole employer in the nation). Supporting certain gun controls is not equivalent to demanding that all guns be confiscated from all citizens. This undeniable, yet unseen truth can be best described in a single phrase, There is no left equivalent. Its time for the electorate to realize that while stark differences absolutely exist between the polices of the right and the left, it is the right who have moved to the fringe. It is the Republican Party, under the influence of the Tea Party, the religious right and other organizations that has become the poster child for supporting politically extreme policies. Cuthbert Hutton Redington BeachDont fret about us, VladEditor: Dear Vlad, How nice to hear from you. We certainly hope all is well with you and yours. We must admit to our surprise when you wrote, and also to the unusual candor with which you expressed not only your concern for America but also in taking issue with what you apparently view as our predilection for proclaiming ourselves to be exceptional. There are a few things that should be cleared up before addressing your concerns. First it is a small and nowhere near representative group of American citizens that consider the nation itself to be exceptional. Most Americans would prefer to suggest it is and always has been citizens and not the nation that should be proclaimed exceptional. As to the American nation, like all nations, we have had our good days and our bad days. We take great pride in pointing out that the good we have done for Americans and for the rest of the world far outweighs the bad. Nevertheless you can rest assured we are working diligently to get better at it. Having said that we want to go on to point out what it is America does best. We serve as a shining beacon attracting people from all the nations of the world with the promise here they will have the freedom and the opportunity to use their talents to join the ranks of the exceptional. That nearly everyone who comes stays, serves as mute testimony to the fact we keep that promise. It is notable that many of those of whom we speak came from your own Mother Russia. We refer to people like theoretical physicist Alexeevitch Abrisikof, Aviation Pioneer Prokofief de Servesky, Choreographer George Balanchine and composers Igor Stravinski and Sergi Rachmanioff to name just a few. Perhaps this drain of exceptional people is one of the reasons there was such a dearth of political talent in Russia it became necessary to alter your Constitution so as to allow you to remain in office. The assumption one must make in view of this action is that you were convinced the sole Russian left exceptionable enough to run the Country was yourself. Conversely, largely due to the exceptionalism our system encourages, every four years we find ourselves confronted with a plethora of exceptionable American talent seeking the presidency. As a result we have been able to seamlessly switch leadership for nearly 250 years. So Vlad, all we really have to say is dont fret about us, well be OK. After all we always have been, without exception! A grateful American. Robert A. Shaw Madeira Beach Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Bill Young Regional Reservoir. Tampa Bay Water officials announced the news the afternoon of Sept. 23. While the outcome of the appeal was not favorable for the people of the Tampa Bay region, the judicial system has made its decision and the agency must continue to focus its attention on the future, Tampa Bay Water said in a media statement. Tampa Bay Waters No. 1 priority is, and always has been, its commitment to provide clean, safe drinking water to the region. Tampa Bay Water filed a federal lawsuit in December 2008 against HDR, as well as the contractor Barnard Construction and the construction manager CDG after cracks were discovered in the reservoirs interior soil-cement lining. Tampa Bay Waters board rejected a $30 million settlement offer from HDR after the boards advisers estimated the agency could get as much as $97 million if they won the lawsuit. A federal jury ruled against Tampa Bay Water April 10, saying that HDR did not breach its standard of care when designing the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. Saying we are disappointed is an understatement, former Tampa Bay Water General Manager Gerald J. Seeber said in a press release issued after the April 10 verdict was announced. We feel strongly that the public shouldnt have to pay twice for a fully functional reservoir. We hired HDR to design the facility. HDR certified its design and the construction to the state, so we believe HDR is liable. Well discuss the verdict with our board and consider our legal options, including a possible appeal. The board decided on the appeal. Former Pinellas County Commissioner Neil Brickfield, who was on the Tampa Bay Water board at the time, said public opinion had been loud and clear that the board should not take the smaller amount. But theres always a risk (when going to court), he said. This is a complicated case with a lot of opinions.The problem and solutionThe reservoir began operation in 2005 and provides water storage for Tampa Bay Waters regional system during the dry season, at which time water is pumped from the reservoir to the surface water treatment plant and then on to the customer. Cracks were found in the flat-plate, soil-cement, erosion-control layer lining of the reservoirs interior during an inspection in December 2006. After studies and data analysis of the problem by consulting engineers, Tampa Bay Waters system engineer said in a June 2009 report that the reservoir was safe and could be fixed. Tampa Bay Water spent the next two years looking for the right solution and the right firm to do the work. A $162 million contract was awarded to design-builder Kiewit Infrastructure South in August 2011 to renovate the reservoir and, upon staffs recommendation, increase its storage capacity by 3 billion gallons. Of the $162 million, officials said $42 million would be used to increase the storage capacity, and $120 million was allocated to the reservoirs renovation. About $6 billion was set aside for unforeseen costs. Photo courtesy of TAMPA BAY WATERWhen the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir is operational, it can hold 15.5 billion gallons of water. The reservoir is currently closed due to repairs.Work is scheduled to occur in two phases. Tampa Bay Water funded the $15 million needed for the first phase through existing bond proceeds, resulting in no rate impact for customers in the near-term. The reservoir is currently closed as repairs continue. TBW provides wholesale water to the public utility systems of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. BriefsWater restrictions in place through Nov. 30Pinellas County reclaimed water seasonal restrictions began Tuesday, Oct. 1.

TORRESCLEARWATER The Whitmans have committed their lives to serving their country and community. Clearwater residents Phil and Lauren Whitman, who have both served as St. Petersburg firefighters, gathered their family in South Carolina to celebrate the graduation of their second son, Gregory, from U.S. Marine Corps boot camp on Sept. 20. We were very fortunate to have all of our family at the graduation, said Lauren Whitman. Pvt. Gregory Whitman, 18, is a 2013 Largo High School graduate and the third member of his family to join the Marines. His brother, Gunnery Sgt. Christopher Whitman, 31, has served as a Marine for 13 years, earning a Bronze Star with Valor and a Purple Heart. A Clearwater High School graduate in 2000, Christopher currently is stationed at Camp Geiger in North Carolina, serving as an instructor to instructors of the Infantry Training Battalion. Their brother-in-law, Lance Cpl. Jacob Faulkner, 21, graduated from Largo High School and has served three years in theThe grass isnt always greener on the other sideAs parents, it is important to take time out and go on dates. I remember the pediatrician telling my husband and me when we had our first daughter that we should go out on a date at least once a month. Over the past nine years, it has been hard to find the time with two young kids and busy schedules. It is also expensive when you have to pay for a babysitter and the date. But we have managed to get out every once in a while, and for one of our recent outings, we went out to dinner. After dinner, we decided we would check out a local restaurant/pub that we had never been to before and have a drink. Its not too often we get to just sit, relax and talk without being interrupted by our kids. We sat at a high-top table in the bar area and started people watching. We noticed a lot of the people at the restaurant were wearing white nametags and asking each other, Whats your number? Some of them even came up to our table and asked us if we were POFers. We had no idea what they were talking about until we asked our waitress. Somehow, we landed in the middle of a Plenty of Fish social. Plenty of Fish, we learned, is an organization to help single people meet other single people. My husband and I continued to observe the people and noticed that it was a crowd of all different ages, ranging from people in their 30s to about 70. It was interesting to say the least to watch these people trying to get to know one another. While we were there, we noticed two guys in their early 40s sitting in a booth. They didnt have nametags on, but they were checking out the scene. We asked them if they were part of the social. They said they came to see what it was like, but didnt want name tags just in case they didnt want to be a part of it. We started talking to them about why they were there. One of them said he was there to help his friend find a date, but he personally didnt need help with dating. He told us several times that night that he was 6 feet, 7 inches tall and 300 pounds and that he had plenty of dates. Maybe size does matter. Anyway, his friends wife had died recently, and he wanted to take him out. What was interesting was they told us they had each been married three times. They were both nice-looking and very nice guys, as far as we could tell. They said their marriage track record wasnt something they would bring up with in conversation though with the ladies. My husband and I started talking about what it must be like these days to be single and looking for companionship. It wasnt what we had remembered from dating when we were younger in the good ol times. This was different. We actually were clinging to each other as we watched, commenting that this was good couples therapy. Even the people who were a part of the social told us: Be glad you have each other. I know in my own life, its hard to be a wife and mom and with all the demands of every day. I know marriage takes work, but it is such a blessing. I thank God for my husband and kids. I saw that the grass isnt always greener on the other side. What we may think is fun just may not be what its cracked up to be. By the way, we found out the Whats your number? question was part of a game where everyone got a number when they registered, and they won a prize if they found the person who had their matching number. My husband and I are glad our numbers are always the same these days.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

Lauran Whitman said that she and her three daughters Bridgett Faulkner, 21; Carole Whitman, 20, and Olivia Whitman, 14, are so proud of the incredible sacrifice and call to service that has been such an important part of our family. Lauren Whitman was a firefighter/paramedic for St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue. Her husband, Lt.

A new report released Sept. 26 by HHS finds that in Florida, consumers will see increased competition in the Health Insurance Marketplace, leading to new and affordable choices for consumers. According to the report, Florida consumers will be able to choose from an average of 102 health plans in the Marketplace. Nationally, the vast majority of consumers will have a choice of at least two different health insurance companies usually more. Premiums nationwide also will be around 16 percent lower than originally expected with about 95 percent of eligible uninsured who live in states with lower than expected premiums before taking into account financial assistance. We are excited to see that rates in the Florida Marketplace are even lower than originally projected, said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. In the past, consumers were too often denied or priced-out of quality health insurance options, but thanks to the Affordable Care Act consumers will be able to choose from a number of new coverage options at a price that is affordable. The new Marketplace opened for business Oct. 1, and millions of Americans are able to shop for and purchase health insurance coverage in one place. Consumers will be able to find out whether they qualify for premium assistance and compare plans side-by-side based on pricing, quality and benefits. No one can be denied coverage because of a preexisting condition. October 1 marked the beginning of a six-month long open enrollment period that runs through March 2014. Coverage begins as early as Jan. 1, or in as little as 100 days from Sept. 26. The new report found that individuals in Florida have an average of 102 qualified health plan choices. Plans in the Marketplace will be categorized as either gold, silver, or bronze. Young adults also will have the option of purchasing a catastrophic plan, increasing their number of choices. In Florida, the average premium for the lowest-cost silver plan will be $304 and for the lowest cost bronze plan will be $257. The average premium nationally for the second lowest cost silver plan will be $328 before tax credits, or 16 percent below projections based off of Congressional Budget Office estimates. About 95 percent of uninsured people eligible for the Marketplace live in a state where their average premium is lower than projections. And states with the lowest premiums have more than twice the number of insurance companies offering plans than states with the highest premiums. Premium and plan options are broken down by state where information is available. For example, the report shows that a 27-year old living in Florida who makes $25,000 per year will pay $96 per month for the lowest cost bronze plan and $145 per month for the second lowest cost silver plan, taking into account tax credits. For a family of four in Florida with an income of $50,000 per year, the lowest bronze plan would cost only $104 per month. In Tampa-St.Petersburg-Clearwater, a 27-year old who makes $25,000 per year will pay $113 per month for the lowest cost bronze plan and $145 per month for the second lowest cost silver plan, taking into account tax credits. For a family of four in the local area with an income of $50,000 per year, the lowest bronze plan would cost only $165 per month. And Tampa-St.Petersburg-Clearwater consumers will be able to choose from among 102 qualified health plans. The majority (around 6 out of 10) of the individuals who are uninsured today will be able to find coverage for $100 or less per month in the Marketplace taking into account premium tax credits and Medicaid coverage. Consumers can get help finding Marketplace coverage through a number of different resources. They can get more information through HealthCare.gov, or cuidadodesalud.gov. They can participate in an online web chat, or call 1-800-318-2596 toll free (TTY: 1-855-889-4325) to speak with a trained customer service representative with translation services available in 150 languages. There also will be people in local communities who can provide inperson help with coverage choices. Those will include Navigators and other assisters, community health centers across the country and local libraries. Pinellas County is finalizing plans to launch its Navigators program with more information coming in the near future.

A district representative from Congressman Bill Youngs office, the vice mayor of Largo and other community dignitaries attended the event. HealthSouth earns re-certificationsLARGO The Joint Commission has again awarded HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Largo with certifications for Disease-Specific Care in hip fracture rehabilitation and stroke rehabilitation. The Joint Commissions Gold Seal of Approval was awarded to the hospital for its compliance with the organizations national standards for healthcare quality and safety in disease-specific care. In achieving Joint Commission certification, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Largo has demonstrated its commitment to the highest level of care for its patients with hip fractures, said Jean Range, M.S., TR.N., C.P.H.Q., in a press releae. Range is executive director of Disease-Specific Care Certification, The Joint Commission. Certification is a voluntary process and I commend them for successfully undertaking this challenge to elevate its standard of care and instill confidence in the community it serves. To earn these certifications, both rehabilitation programs underwent an extensive, unannounced, on-site evaluation by a team of Joint Commission reviewers. The programs were evaluated against Joint Commission standards through an assessment of the programs processes, the programs ability to evaluate and improve care within its own organization, and interviews with patients and staff. HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Largo was recertified by The Joint Commission for the care they deliver to patients that have had strokes and hip fractures, said Tripp Smith, CEO of HealthSouth of Largo. This recertification highlights that HealthSouth Largo has implemented evidence-based protocols and best practices to ensure stroke and hip fracture patients receive the best care possible.Able Medical Aids to host ostomy eventLARGO In conjunction with World Ostomy Day, a Celebration of Ostomy Life will be presented Saturday, Oct. 5, 10 a.m. to noon, at Able Medical Aids, 1280 Missouri Ave. N.

Dr. Richard Liles, medical director of HealthSouth Largo, takes part in the recent Celebration Reunion. Being responsible for your own healthWhen I was in physical therapy about a year ago, there was a lady on the table next to me who was grunting and groaning and huffing and puffing her way through her exercises. At one point, when it seemed to be particularly hard for her, she looked over at me and said do you know why I do this? I have to stay in shape so that my son doesnt have to take care of me. I dont want him to spend his young life that way. Then, she started huffing and puffing again. Last week, I overheard a conversation between two ladies who were smoking. One told the other that she knew she should quit, but that she had to die of something, and hey, I took care of my kids so they have to take care of me, and laughed. I instantly felt bad for people I didnt know. I had images of middle-aged children with jobs, houses and families of their own. And while they were dealing with their dayto-day responsibilities and pressures of life, having to take their mother from doctor appointment to doctor appointment, from treatment to the hospital and home, planning meals and caring for her throughout the week. I felt bad for her too and wondered if she understood the gravity of her statement. I imagine she loves her children and she would not want to take time away from their lives, saddling them with years of taking care of her when it could be avoided. It is a beautiful thing when family steps up and supports us in our old age and I believe in that. Accidents happen and were also not responsible for things we dont know. Many families have the means and would prefer to take care of their loved ones in their golden years. Thats not what Im talking about here. Im talking about becoming educated while you have time and before you get to that place. Im also talking about people who know better but do it anyway. Its a new way of thinking. If you are 60 years old or younger, you are probably aware of the drawbacks of inactivity, eating bad food and indulging in alcohol, tobacco and drugs. There was a time when very little education was available but those times are behind us now. If youve chosen a sedentary life or you have a problem with food or anything in excess including smoking, drinking and/or drugging, information is available that will give you insight into your potential future. More importantly, help is available. If youre a smoker, imagine how mentally empowering it would be to say, I quit smoking so I dont get COPD. I wont have to carry oxygen around and my kids wont have to take care of me. How good do you think you would feel about yourself if you were pre-diabetic, and before it was too late, you could say, I stopped eating ice cream to avoid diabetes so my husband doesnt have to spend his golden years wheeling me around from doctor to doctor? Whats the worst thing that could happen if you decide to make today the day to start getting healthy? Youre never too old to learn how to take care of yourself. When you decide to take responsibility for your own health, youll be on this planet a whole lot longer, youll feel better physically and mentally and you wont be a burden to your family. You will be a more valuable member of your family and the community and it feels great to be in control. Being responsible for your own health is a win-win; you love yourself and your family. Its double happiness.A staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013, Dina Meitner, LCSW, is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

If I Can Get Well, So Can You! 100313 Fishing on the rebound after heavy rainsWith a small cold front and a ton of rain behind us, the gradual transition into fall continues. Last weekends beautiful weather was perfect for fishing either inshore or offshore. The water clarity was excellent by Saturday and the beaches were again full of life. Schools of small Spanish mackerel can be seen driving baitfish to the surface, a sight that was sure to get you exited about fishing. We live in such a fishy area. Inshore fishing slowed down a bit last week most likely due to all the rain. Too much fresh water in that short of a time period will disrupt the bait patterns and in turn the predators. By the weekend it showed good signs of improvement. Redfish remain top targets. With slightly cooler water temperatures this week look for the fish to push up onto the flats as the shadow mullet schools. These fish should be plenty hungry and willing to track down a top-water plug or a gold spoon. Offshore fishing was very good this past weekend. Gag and red grouper are abundant on hard bottom ledges in 60 to 80 feet. Standard tactics of firing up the bottom with frozen sardines or herring then switching to frisky pinfish and grunts worked very well. One of our keys to success lately has been the willingness to move as soon as the bite slows. In these shallower depths a move of a couple hundred feet can yield more fish. Near-shore fishing is absolutely on the verge of breaking loose, and who knows with the overnight temps in the low 70s all week this might be a good weekend to break out the stinger rigs and do some slow trolling in close. Small Spanish mackerel, a favorite food of kingfish dominate our near shore waters. Slow trolling legal sized mackerel around the schools of bait is an exciting way to fish. Many times the kingfish will skyrocket many feet into the air when they strike a slow trolled mackerel. Other good baits would include mullet, blue runners, ladyfish and shad.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. To get a fish photo in the paper, send the photo along with your name, when and where it was caught to editorial@TBNweekly.com or mail it to Tampa Bay Newspapers, 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772. Fish TalesCapt. Tyson Wellerstein Tournament helps buy childrens life jacketsPINELLAS PARK The second annual Fireman John Memorial Fishing Tournament Sept. 14 raised $1,800 to help purchase life jackets for children. With the assistance of 70 anglers and sponsors, the fishing tournament benefitted All Childrens Hospital in support of Florida Safe Pools, to purchase life jackets for children with special needs as well as children found in boats not wearing life jackets. The tournament was held in honor of retired Pinellas Park firefighter and avid fisherman John Litz. In September 2011, while fishing with a friend, Litz was thrown from the boat and drowned. He was not wearing a life jacket. Visit www.facebook.com/Fire manJohn-FishingTournament.

LARGO American rock musician Gary Wright will weave melodic dreams when he performs Friday, Oct. 4, 8 p.m., at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets start at $34.50, plus applicable service fee. Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. Best known for his 1975 synthpop hit Dream Weaver, Wright has recorded more than a dozen solo albums in a career that has spanned more than half a century. His biggest hit, Dream Weaver, has been featured in many movies including Waynes World, The People vs. Larry Flynt and Toy Story 3. Wright has continued to have success on the Billboard charts with Love Is Alive, Really Wanna Know You and Phantom Writer. In 1986, he contributed the song Hold On to Your Vision on the soundtrack of Sylvester Stallones movie Cobra. Better By You, Better Than Me, a song written by Wright, was covered by Judas Priest on their 1978 album Stained Class. In recent years, Wright has been seen touring with Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band.The Dream WeaverWrights signature song, Dream Weaver, appeared on the 1975 album The Dream Weaver. It is generally considered the first synthpop hit song as all instrumentation in Dream Weaver was created by synthesizer, except for percussionist Jim Keltners drums. Synthpop, defined by its primary use of synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers, had roots in electronic art music by artists such as Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Tomita. By the late 1970s, an increasing number of musicians began dabbling with the sound, including Devo and The Human League. As a genre, synthpop did not achieve mainstream commercial success until the early 1980s and the introduction of the New Romantic movement associated with bands such as Duran Duran, ABC, Soft Cell and Ultravox. The Dream Weaver stretched the pop music envelope by featuring the first-ever all keyboard/synthesizer band, pioneering technologies in cut-down versions of synthesizers and drum machines that revolutionized the musical instrument business and changed the sound of pop, rock and R&B forever. In 1976, the song Dream Weaver hit No. 1 in the charts, and its follow-up release Love is Alive climbed to No. 2. In all, The Dream Weaver resulted in sales of over two million albums and two million singles. In a business where even the biggest success is often written in the wind, the popular appeal of Wrights songwriting genius has endured. Wrights Dream Weaver has directly or indirectly inspired and influenced Dream WeaverSynthpop pioneer Gary Wright to play Largo Cultural Center Photo courtesy of LARGO CULTURAL CENTERGary Wright takes the stage Oct. 4 at Largo Cultural Center.

Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuarn directed the film. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.Runner RunnerGenre: Drama and thriller Cast: Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck, Gemma Arterton and Anthony Mackie Director: Brad Furman Rated: R Princeton grad student Richie (Justin Timberlake), believing hes been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). Richie is seduced by Blocks promise of immense wealth, until he learns the disturbing truth about his benefactor. When the FBI tries to coerce Richie to help bring down Block, Richie faces his biggest gamble ever: attempting to outmaneuver the two forces closing in on him. Richie is chasing a new version of the American dream: easy, instant and limitless wealth. Once on the Wall Street fast track, Richie lost everything when the market crashed and is now starting over, hustling his way through graduate school. After being cheated by an online gambling site and watching his tuition money disappear, Richie flies to Costa Rica to confront the gambling legend behind the site: Ivan Block. Block is impressed by Richies savvy and takes the younger man under his wing, promising to show Richie the ropes. Soon thereafter, Richie falls for Blocks associate sophisticated COO Rebecca Shafran (Gemma Arterton) and he embraces a world that sees all of his fantasies come to life. But Richie soon learns that Block is wanted for racketeering, extortion and bribery, and that FBI Special Agent Shavers (Anthony Mackie) is obsessed with bringing Block and his associates to justice. Block decides to pull up stakes and leave Richie behind as the fall guy. With Shavers closing in, Richie must figure out a way to stay a step ahead of Block and Shavers or risk a future behind bars.The following will open in limited release.

Tormented by a manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place) with a boyfriend a third her age, a deadbeat new age dad (Stephen Root), and a sweet, yet pressuring,Opening this week wife (Gillian Jacobs), his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction. Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pintsized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.

She takes on a new project and purchases a pied-terre in Manhattan. Walking around the city streets reminds Abby what it feels like to be sexy, and her pent-up libido shakes off its inhibitions. Her desire is not a take-home item for the minivan ride back home, so Abby inaugurates a double life that draws her deeply into a world of prostitution for women. In an auspicious debut effort, director Stacie Passon draws out a pitch-perfect performance from her lead actor, Robin Weigert, as a sexy, shut-down family woman stretching to bloom again. Palpably sensual and deliciously contained, Concussion is a keen observation of the complicated contours of midlife crisis.Grace UnpluggedGenre: Drama and music Cast: AJ Michalka, James Denton and Kevin Pollak Director: Brad J.

Subramanian. Wright continued recording and releasing solo albums through the 1980s and 1990s. His output included The Right Place (1981), Who I Am (1988), First Signs of Life (1995) and Human Love (1999). In 2008, Wright became the newest touring member of Ringo Starrs All Starr Band before releasing an instrumental album of ambient music called Waiting To Catch the Light and an EP called The Light of a Million Suns that featured a duet with his son Dorian on a rerecord of his hit song Love Is Alive. Wright began another new decade in the music industry with the 2010 release of Connected, his first pop-rock album in more than 20 years. Connected is described as a culmination of Wrights vast life experiences, songwriting ability and production know-how. Wright, a visionary songwriter, performer and all-around musical pioneer, has spent more than 40 years shattering conventional ideas about how to make chart-topping rock music, according to Larkio Music. His classic songs Dream Weaver, Love is Alive and Really Wanna Know You have given ample evidence of Wrights musical genius by achieving hit status in four different decades while his musical wizardry has helped shape and redirect the very sound and texture of contemporary pop. Jeremy Strong and Tom Welling Director: Peter Landesman Rated: PG-13 Exclusive Releasing Parkland recounts the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas, on Nov. 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Parkland weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and JFKs security team, witnesses to both the presidents death and Vice President Lyndon Johnsons trise to power over a nation whose innocence was forever altered.The SummitGenre: Documentary Director: Nick Ryan Rated: R In August 2008, 18 mountain climbers reached the top of K2 48 hours later, 11 people were dead. While memorials paid tribute to those killed, there were also condemnations about the why why do these athletes risk everything to reach a place humans are simply not meant to go? With breathtaking cinematography and jaw dropping reenactments based on the testimony of those who survived the climb, this thrilling film is about the very nature of adventure in the modern world.For more movie news including whats playing at local theaters and trailers, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Wright joined Billy Markle in 1959 to record as Gary & Billy. The duo released Working After School and Lisa for the 20th Century Fox Records label. Wright was 16. Prior to that, Wright appeared on Broadway in Fanny, originating the role of Acolyte and, later, replacing Lloyd Reese in the role of Cesario, the son of Fanny. In the 1960s, Wright put his recording career on hold to complete his education. He earned a degree in psychology. According to the artists biography, provided by Larkio Music, Wright met Island Records founder Chris Blackwell in 1967 and moved to London, where he formed the rock group Spooky Tooth. That year, Island released the groups first record, Its All About, which immediately won critical acclaim and launched the group on a successful career path that included sold-out U.S. tours with rock legends Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones. The band followed up with its classic second album, Spooky Two. Wright next released two solo albums on A&M Records, Extraction (1971) and Footprint (1972). He also recorded three more albums with a revived Spooky Tooth featuring Mick Jones, who would later found the band Foreigner. In 1974, Wright signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records, which resulted in his groundbreaking 1975 release The Dream Weaver. The 1970s proved an extremely prolific period for Wright. He produced records for Traffic and Rolling Stones producer Jimmy Millers production company. He quickly became a part of Londons elite session musicians, playing keyboards on George Harrisons 1970 classic All Things Must Pass, which also featured Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Phil Collins and other greats. Together with Harrison, Wright visited India in 1974 as a guest of Ravi Shankar. That visit developed into a long term relationship with DREAM WEAVER, from page 1Band family ties are tested when she defies her worship-pastor father and pursues pop-music stardom in Grace Unplugged, a moving and inspiring new film that explores the true meaning of success. Grace Trey (AJ Michalka) has just turned 18 and aspires to do more than sing in her churchs worship band, which is led by her father, Johnny Trey (James Denton), a onetime pop star who gave up his life in secular music when he became a Christian. Grace longs to escape his shadow and make a name for herself singing songs about something other than God, but Johnny warns her that fame is not as glamorous as it looks and reminds her that serving and worshipping God with the talent shes been given is a far more worthwhile goal. When Johnnys former manager, Frank Mossy Mostin (Kevin Pollak), shows up 20 years after the two parted ways to offer him another shot at the big time, Johnny declines the opportunity. But Grace takes it without telling her parents. She records a cover version of her fathers old Top 10 hit, runs away to Los Angeles and, under Mossys guidance, begins to taste the kind of success shes always dreamed of. But with each rung of the ladder she climbs, Grace feels pressure to compromise her Christian values and learns not everyone who says theyre on her side really is. The one exception is Quentin (Michael Welch), an intern at her record company and a fellow Christian who urges Grace to reassess her choices and put God first again in her life. Will everything she experiences lead her to reject her faith ... or rediscover it?ParklandGenre: Drama Cast: Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver, Paul Giamatti, James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Colin Hanks, David Harbour, Ron Livingston, Photo by CLAIRE FOLGER/EXCLUSIVE MEDIA ENTERTAINMENTBilly Bob Thornton stars as Forrest Sorrels, the head of the Secret Service in Dallas, in Parkland.

PETERSBURG As part of the Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road series, multi Grammy-winning singer/songwriter India.Arie will bring her Soulbird Presents A SongVersation with India.Arie 2013 North American tour to the Tampa Bay area on Saturday, Oct. 12, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Tickets start at $45. Call 791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com before the day of the show. On the day of the show, call 822-3590 or visit www.mypalladium.org. The tour comes in support of India.Aries acclaimed fifth studio album, SongVersation, released on Soulbird/Motown Records. SongVersation, released June 25, has received rave reviews. The album is the artists fifth No. 1 on the Billboard R&B Album Chart and fifth top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Its also her first release following a self-imposed four-year hiatus. This is where Ive been for the last four years, said the singer in a biography provided by 42 West, a public-relations firm. Ive struggled most of my career to feel comfortable with how things were, how I was treated, the politics of the music industry. I needed to pull back from the public eye to ground myself and rebuild my life and career. Its a process many of us go through: spiritual maturation, spiritual awakening, clearing out the old and starting anew.Success, departure and returnBorn in Denver and later relocating to Atlanta as a teen, India.Arie went from singing under a tree in the park to the Grammy Awards stage over the course of five years. Acoustic Soul, her debut album, was released in 2001. She earned seven nominations for her the double-platinum album which featured her first hit single Video. In 2002, India.Arie followed up the successful debut with the platinum-selling Voyage to India, The album debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and boasted first-week sales of 109,000 copies. The album took Best R&B Album at the 2003 Grammy Awards and the single Little Things won Best Urban/Alternative Performance. Another song on Voyage to India, Get It Together went on to appear on several film soundtracks such as Brown Sugar in 2002 and Shark Tale in 2004. In 2006, India.Arie released Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship which was followed in 2009 by the sequel Testimony: Vol. 2, Love & Politics. The first album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200; the sequel debuted at No. 3. By this time, India.Arie had garnered 21 Grammy nominations, four Grammys and 10 million albums sold but something was wrong. In 2009 I let go, said India.Arie in her biography. I realized I had to seize the chance to make the career and life I wanted, not accepting what others wanted me to do. So I decided to retire, asking God to show me where I am supposed to be. Music did eventually come back into her life through a series of vulnerable songs she began writing for a self-funded new project called Open Door. But three years into the project, she shelved it. I was confronted by the same questions, said India.Arie. Who are you? How are you shaping the big picture of your life? Exhausted from writing and recording Open Door, the singer didnt feel like doing another album. But instead of waiting another three years, she took a day to pray. Six months later she finished SongVersation. That was my first glimpse of a new resilience, of stepping into my Photo courtesy of 42 WESTIndia.Arie performs Oct. 12 at the Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College. power, she said. Its about not having anything to prove except to simply express myself because its who I am not as a means to an end. Chasing that and topping that is not me. Its about being more me in both my life and career. India.Arie recently embraced the former by expanding Soulbird, her label imprint, into a multi-faceted company housing her other entrepreneurial endeavors: jewelry, apparel, merchandise, film and TV, music and book publishing. Shes also ready again for fans to hear India.Arie, the singer/songwriter. I wasnt ready until now, she said. I love where things are on and offstage. I trusted my intuition through every line and note of every song on this album, following the flow. And the ease of the flow is always a sign that I am in the right place, doing the right thing. And that is all Ive ever wanted. I created SongVersation from that place.Beach Art Center to host Red exhibitINDIAN ROCKS BEACH The Florida Artists Group, Area IV, and its board of directors will exhibit artwork in a show entitled Red, running Oct. 4-31, at the Beach Art Center, 1515 Bay Palm Blvd., Indian Rocks Beach.

Torres, a philanthropist and Realtor, will be the star of a gala.

She committed to continuing financial support for those concerts for 20 years. Now, to accommodate huge crowds, the concerts are presented in St. Petersburg on the downtown waterfront in Vinoy Park.
