By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO An intoxicated driver of a vehicle that crashed on Christmas night 2011, killing two of its passengers, was extradited from Uruguay to face two charges of vehicular homicide Oct. 4. Diego Cavalieri, now 24, was driving with alcohol and THC in his system when he attempted to pass another vehicle on Indian Rocks Road, lost control and crashed, according to the Largo Police Department. Witnesses saw the 2007 Ford Fusion driving recklessly that night. It was later determined he was driving 70 mph in a 35 mph zone. At around 10:55 p.m., in front of the Indian Rocks Road campus of the Largo Medical Center, Cavalieri tried to pass a 2000 Buick Century. He lost control and drove off the road. He attempted to correct the swerving, but instead, crossed in front of the Buick and was T-boned. The resulting crash killed two of his passengers Thomas Williams, 25, and Sean Wilson, 22, and seriously injured another, Timothy Talbot, 23. Cavalieri fled the country days after the crash and before the investigation of the crash was completed. Largo Police Department charged him with two counts of vehicular homicide and two counts of reckless driving causing serious injuries. With the help of the State Attorneys Office and the State Department, a warrant for his arrest was served and an international warrant was entered via Interpol. U.S. Marshals arrested Diego in Uruguay, and the Uruguayan Supreme Court signed off on his extradition; the first extradition from Uruguay since the 1950s, according to U.S. Marshals Service. Largo police booked Cavalieri into the Pinellas County Jail the evening of Oct. 4, after the U.S. Marshals escorted him from Uruguay. He remains in jail awaiting trial.

TORRESLARGO Asking for just a few more minutes before Largo commissioners left the workshop Oct. 8 to catch the Rays game, City Manager Mac Craig emphasized the importance of the stormwater presentation they had just heard. Your action on that in the future will probably be the most important thing that you do for the city of Largo, he said. Some day, were going to be drinking that stormwater. The citys entire stormwater system which is designed to carry rain and the ensuing runoff pollution off of streets and lawns and out to major bodies of water is getting old. What we are seeing more and more of is localized flooding: street flooding and yard flooding. And while the localized flooding is not a risk of major public safety and property damage, it is a nuisance to our residents, said city engineer Leland Dicus. The problem has been compounded over the last year due to higher rainfall. But thats not the only reason why localized flooding has increased. Much of the stormwater infrastructure was built 30 and 50 years ago, when most of the city was developed. Its reaching the end of its service life, Dicus said. Its not that we just need to mow a ditch, or mow a swale or clean out a driveway culvert. Its that the culvert is crushed. And that the ditch and the swale is completely silted in, and its going to require major rehab to return it to good condition. The increasing infrastructure failures have diverted the attention of staff away Largo High defeatsClearwater 35-7Osceola scored on its first possession to tie the game 7-7 but Largos defense took over and Osceola never made it to the end zone again.

The Largo Golf Course hosted an open house featuring the sport Oct. 5, followed by the Tampa Bay FootGolf Open Oct. 6. The event was a joint venture of the Florida FootGolf Association and the American FootGolf League. FootGolf is played on shortened holes with players kicking a soccer ball toward 21-inch diameter cups. The Largo FootGolf course, a par-71 course with a 2,447yard layout, is the eighth certified course in the nation to offer the new sport and one of only two such courses in Florida. Regular tee times for FootGolf will be available Saturdays and Sundays, noon to close beginning Saturday, Oct. 12. Rates are, for 18 holes: $20 to ride and $15 to walk or for nine holes: $15 to ride and $10 to walk. A $5 discount is available for groups of 12 or more. Largo Golf Course is at 12500 Vonn Road. For more information or to book a tee time, call the Pro Shop at 518-3024. An electronic FootGolf tee time system is still in the works, but more details about the sport and the course are available at www.largofootgolf.com.New sport, FootGolf, opens at Largo Golf CourseCounty readies navigator program By SUZETTE PORTERNational media sources reported a huge surge in interest when the federal Health Insurance Marketplace opened Oct. 1. But, the same wasnt true at Pinellas County Health and Community Services. Natalie D. Jackson, program administrator, at the countys H&CS, said Oct. 3 that only about 20 to 25 calls had come in from people asking about the marketplace. As of yesterday, weve had seven people come in, she said. She wasnt concerned about the low numbers since the agency is still working to get its Navigator program up and running. Pinellas County received a $600,000 grant from the federal government to fund the hiring and support of navigators, who will assist residents with the new health insurance exchange. Jackson said all navigators hired by H&CS had not yet completed the certification process required to do their jobs. She said the shutdown of the federal government had reduced the number of project officers available to certify navigators. Still, she is confident that everyone will be certified and the countys program would be up and running by the target date of Oct. 14. October 1 marked the beginning of the period when people could begin exploring the program to find out about the different plans and their eligibility for tax relief. This is the time to understand what it is and whether it is beneficial to you, Jackson said.

The city will begin a comprehensive assessment of the stormwater system in order to tackle more projects like this one.

4A Largo Leader, October 10, 2013your plan, do your research to make sure the plan meets your needs. Open enrollment continues until March 31, 2014, so there is no rush to get signed up right away, she said. People who have health insurance through their employer dont have to worry about a penalty come tax time. People without insurance, however, should be looking into the new program to learn what they need to do. She recommends visiting www.healthcare.gov, which has information on many health insurance topics and provides specific plans and prices per state. Health insurance coverage can start as soon as Jan. 1, 2014. County residents also can call 464-8411 to set up an appointment with a counselor. Maggie Hall, spokesperson for the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, said due to a state edict, the health department is not allowed to participate in the navigator program. Instead, the agency is directing people who come in to their clinics to the county.Scammers are geared up and readyWhile the government continues to fine tune and ready programs to respond to people interested in the health insurance marketplace, scam artists are already on the prowl. There are three aspects of the Affordable Health Care Act that make it easy for scams to thrive, said a press release from Pinellas County Communications. First, the law affects nearly every American in some way, so consumers across the U.S. are vulnerable to getting scammed. Second, the act is not standardized nationwide, allowing each state to administer the law in different ways. Third, the complexity of the law leaves consumers confused. The countys Department of Justice and Consumer Services offers some tips to help protect against becoming a victim. Most important is to protect personal information. Individuals should never give out information such as credit card, bank account or social security numbers over the phone, by email or in person outside an official government office, especially when unsolicited. When meeting in person, ask to see the representatives credentials. Government agencies usually communicate via the United States Postal Service and their employees would never ask for personal information over the phone or by email. Be aware that scammers can spoof caller IDs and display fake names and phone numbers. Lastly, remember there is no rush to get signed up for health insurance right away. Anyone who phones or emails and pressures you into an immediate decision is likely a scammer. The best advice is to hang up the phone and dont answer the email. If you think youre a victim of a scam, call Justice and Consumer Services at 464-6200 or visit www.pinellascounty.org/consumer.

City calendar City calendarMixson named new deputy fire chiefLARGO Former Division Chief David Mixson was promoted to deputy fire chief of Largo Fire Rescue, Chief Shelby Willis announced Oct. 3. Mixsons new roles and responsibilities include administrative oversight of the department as well as assuming the role of emergency management coordinator for the city. Mixson has been with Largo Fire Rescue for almost 20 years. He began his career in January 1994 as a firefighter/paramedic. He was promoted to lieutenant in January 2003 then district chief in December 2006. In April 2009, Mixson was promoted to the rank of division chief and has served in both the operations and logistics divisions for the department. In addition, Mixson was a SWAT medic and was asked to lead the Pinellas County Hazmat Team as the teams commander from January 2007 through April 2011. Mixson has a bachelors degree in business administration from St. Leo University and is currently pursuing a masters of science in safety, security, and emergency management from Eastern Kentucky University. Chief Mixsons leadership and commitment to our city and our organization is without reproach, Willis stated in her citywide announcement.

Willis was named permanent fire chief last month and stated then her intentions to make successive promotions to fill her place. Deputy Fire Chief David Mixson Big Brothers Big Sisters calls all couples to actionLARGO To increase the number of mentors for young boys in Pinellas County, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas launched The Next BIG Thing on Oct. 1 the very first Big Couples campaign in its history. Statistically, one in five African-American boys in the county will graduate from high school this year. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas will run a 50-day campaign with the goal of recruiting 50 new Big Couples to remove 50 boys from the agencys waiting list. There currently are more than 200 children ready to be matched. As a Big Couple, you and your long-term significant other become adult mentors otherwise known as Bigs to a young boy waiting for someone to guide him down the path to success. The three of you can do things together or spend time with your Little individually, from simple activities like playing catch in the park to eating a hot dog at a Tampa Bay Rays game. Your presence has the power to enrich a childs life by exposing him to things he would otherwise never get to experience. There are 744 hours in the average month; it only takes four to eight hours to be a Big Couple. To get started, contact Big Brothers Big Sisters by calling 5188860 or visiting www.bbbspc.org. Volunteers then must pick one of three programs: C o m m u n i t y b a s e d : meeting with the child for four hours each month to spend quality time together in the community. S p o r t s B u d d i e s : an extension of Community Based, this program stems from building an instant friendship from the common interest of sports. S c h o o l b a s e d : meeting with the child on school grounds for one hour per week; your visit will typically range from playing on the playground to helping with academic work or simply talking about your day. You are not responsible for seeing the child when school is not in session. Volunteers then would meet with a degreed Match Manager for an interview and training session before meeting a new Little Brother. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides a system of ongoing evaluation and support, which is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that Littles will perform better in school and avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others. The organization has been in existence for more than 100 years at a national level, and more than 45 years locally.

NAVIGATOR, from page 1Afrom routine maintenance, such as ditch mowing schedules and preventative measures. Were being pulled more and more into these urgent emergency repairs. Theyre very time-consuming for in-house maintenance staff and often require long-term planning, Dicus said. Since 2008, urgent, unplanned repairs have cost the city $2 million. Those dont include capital projects that have been completed. Most recently, the Sunset Manor ditch rehabilitation project, part of the overall goal to retrofit the McKay Creek stormwater system, was completed this year. That particular ditch was both extremely difficult for our public works crews to maintain and in some cases, extremely dangerous to even access, said Sean VanDerGracht, the citys stormwater administrator. With working with our public works crews, our engineering division was able to turn it into what you see there today. If not addressed, localized flooding will turn into structure flooding that will cause widespread damage to city residences and businesses. On top of the age of the infrastructure, much of it never achieved what the system needs to be now. Many of state environmental regulations and development standards were not in place before the 1980s, VanDerGracht said. The majority of the city was already developed at that time, he explained. The infrastructure needs to be upgraded not only because its old, but because it was never designed to clean the stormwater of pollutants that can harm Gulf waters and ecosystem. Stormwater runoff is public enemy No. 1, VanDerGracht said. The reason the stormwater runoff can be so bad for the environment is unlike our sanitary sewer system, its not connected to any sort of treatment plant. The city plans to retrofit much of its stormwater system for water treatment as its first initiative in confronting the problem. On Jan. 1, the city completed its state-required total maximum daily living plan, which identifies which water bodies are exceeding pollution limits and how the city plans to clean the water that flows into it. Despite many of water quality improvements that the city as well as the county have implemented the past 10 years, the vast majority of the water bodies in Pinellas County are currently classified as impaired (meaning they are) not meeting one or more state water quality standards, Dicus said. The city is waiting for state approval of its prioritized list of water bodies that need to be addressed. The city also is looking at developing a comprehensive stormwater infrastructure maintenance rehabilitation program. To do this, it will need to completely assess the entire system to determine the condition of different components. Then we can start predicting where we need to invest in replacing infrastructure, Dicus said. This plan that we are proposing is to identify where are these areas, what will be the cost to rehab them, when do we want to rehab them, what will that mean to our fund. Finally, city staff will continue to look for opportunities to tackle multiple infrastructure improvements at one time. A local roadway and community street infrastructure project also provides an opportunity to retrofit some of the urban stormwater treatment practices weve been talking about, Dicus said. In the coming months as city staff seeks to upgrade the entire system, commissioners will be considering raising the stormwater fee charged to residents and businesses. City staff couldnt hazard a guess on the total cost of the rehabilitation, but Craig said, its going to take millions. Weve got a lot of work to do Craig said. The system is old, and its in terrible shape were seeing it every day. And we cant keep up with it. City commissioners will be updated on the progress of the plan at a later meeting.Photo courtesy of the CITY OF LARGOLargo public works employees clean out a catch basin, designed to catch organic and inorganic pollutants in the stormwater system.

Clearwaters Pier 60 walk-on rates double By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER For years it has cost 50 cents to walk out to the end of Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach. As of Oct. 1, that price has doubled to $1. Clearwater officials say the increase was long overdue. The rates havent changed in the 14 years I have been here, said Harbormaster Bill Morris. It has been something of a loss leader if you will, it was just something that we hadnt raised. Morris, who is also the director of Clearwaters Marine and Aviation Department, said costs dictated the increase. We just try to remain competitive with the market to be able to provide the revenue back to the city that we can, he said. We dont cover the cost of what it might take to rebuild that, but we do our best to remain competitive with the other piers up and down the coast. We have to keep prices such that people will use it. We watch what everybody elses rates are. Morris said he hasnt heard much feedback from residents about the fee increase. He said he expects that to change once the rates go into effect. I expect to get some complaints when it becomes a reality, he said. Some people have grumbled but until they have to reach into their pockets I dont anticipate hearing a whole lot. Who will likely complain the most? Morris said the casual visitor is likely to bear the brunt of the new rate. The local folks who go out there on a regular basis probably have a weekly or monthly pass, he said. However, somebody who has a number of out of town guests and wants to bring them for a walk on the pier will be hit for sure. They will complain then Im sure. On a bright, sunny afternoon recently a couple from Chicago was strolling on the beach, enjoying the first day of their vacation. Tim and Annie Wilson were on a five-day stay. It was Tims birthday and one of their plans was to take a walk on the pier. That is until they discovered it was going to cost them 50 cents to do so. The pier was definitely on our to-do list, said Annie Wilson. But now were not going; we dont have any change. Who carries money on them when they go for a walk on the beach? Tom Wilson wondered why there had to be a charge at all. In Chicago we have a pier and there is lots to do on it and it is free, he said. It would be nice if it were free here, too. When told about the pending increase to a dollar, Annie Wilson was quick to say what effect that would have on their plans. We wouldnt go out there at all in that case, she said. Not far away Karl Artt and Victoria Justin, visitors from Northern Ireland, had just come back from a short walk on the pier. They hadnt gone out far enough to have to pay and in fact were surprised when told they would have had to pay 50 cents to go all the way. They didnt seem to mind, even when told of the pending increase. We loved it out there, said Justin. We didnt go far enough to have to pay but we would if we come back again. A dollar would be OK, said Artt. Mind you it would be quite costly for someone coming here every day. The increase in rates was approved by the Clearwater City Commission, as does every financial increase over 10 percent. Morris said the ongoing maintenance of the pier has to be paid for somehow. Right now the pier is undergoing a midlife extension, he said. The entire railing all the way around the pier is being replaced. Photo by BRIAN GOFFTim and Annie Wilson of Chicago celebrate Tims birthday on the pier on Clearwater Beach.Right now it is pressure treated lumber which has deteriorated and it is being replaced with new plastic railings. Morris said the state-of-the-art in plastic lumber has matured and improved significantly in recent years, He says the railing replacement should be finished in two weeks in time for the Super Boat races. He said the replacement of the decking on the pier also was done with a hybrid form of lumber, which has lasted longer than wood ever did. Original lumber had to be replaced every five years or so, he said. Fifteen years ago we replaced the decking with this new composite and it has lasted this long and we feel it has another 15 years left in it. When it first went in it was brown, since then it has turned gray but that is the only change. It has paid for itself many times over. The new walk-on rate of 1 dollar went into effect on Oct. 1. The other rates remain unchanged. The daily fishing fee is $8 or $6.75 for seniors. The weekly rate is $30 or $25 for seniors and the annual pass is $250 or $200 for seniors. Those rates will remain the same at least for the year ahead.Elections Office offers sample ballots by emailLARGO Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced that voters now have the opportunity to receive sample ballots for countywide elections by email. House Bill 247, effective Oct. 1, provides that the statewide voter registration application include a space for an email address and the option for voters to request that their sample ballots be emailed to them. We are pleased to give voters a new option for receiving sample ballots, Clark said. Many people prefer electronic communication, and we welcome the technology to accommodate them. Voters who request sample ballots for countywide elections by email will no longer receive sample ballots for countywide elections by regular mail. Voters will also need to need to keep their email addresses current with the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Office. Please note that sample ballot email information provided by the voter is not exempt from public record under Florida law. To request sample ballots by email: Visit www.votepinellas.com Email sampleballot@votepinellas.com (include date of birth) Call 464-VOTE (8683) New registration applications are being revised by the Division of Elections by Administrative Rule and are expected to be available by mid-October in all Supervisor of Elections Offices as well as voter registration agencies such as public libraries, tax collector offices, public assistance offices and military recruitment offices.Elections Office receives $1.8 million grantLARGO Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced the award of a $1.8 million grant to enhance the absentee voting process for military and overseas citizens. The award is an expansion on an original grant to a coalition of supervisors of elections, which includes Pinellas County. The coalition, named Our Mission: Your Vote, originally included 13 counties, and this grant will help expand the project and bring 21 additional Florida counties into its consortium as part of the Electronic Absentee Systems for Elections grant funded by the Federal Voting Assistance Program. Using the system, voters can request, mark and track their absentee ballots electronically. The system is designed to provide greater online access, automate absentee requests and expedite ballot delivery, making the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act voting process more seamless. Speeding up ballot delivery is expected to increase ballot request and return rates of military and overseas voters. Providing ballot access to our men and women serving our country overseas is of the utmost importance, Clark said. We will continue to do everything we can to protect their right to vote, just as they are defending our freedoms. We are excited that this project was funded once again to provide this electronic system for ballot delivery to our voters who are stationed overseas. Original members of the Our Mission: Your Vote coalition include Baker, Bay, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Escambia, Leon, Nassau, Okaloosa, Pinellas, Putnam, Sarasota, and Wakulla counties. Joining the coalition include Alachua, Charlotte, Citrus, Collier, Hernando, Highlands, Indian River, Jackson, Levy, Madison, Manatee, Martin, Miami-Dade, Okeechobee, Osceola, St. Johns, Santa Rosa, Sumter, Suwannee, Walton and Washington counties.

At its monthly meeting Sept. 27, the board, which includes elected officials from Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas and Sarasota counties unanimously endorsed a resolution to support the new transit improvement plan for Pinellas County. Greenlight Pinellas is a multimodal comprehensive transit improvement plan incorporating feedback from the public, the business community, planning agencies, the Pinellas Alternatives Analysis and the Community Bus Plan. The goal of the plan is to help the county develop the most efficient and economically viable transit service possible.

Call Betty at 360-3971.Hurricane season not over yet By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Emergency Management recently reminded residents to stay prepared for possible tropical weather in October, which is the third busiest month for hurricane development. More than 16 percent of all storms historically have formed in October. When cold fronts blow out of Canada, bringing cooler air to our neighbors up north, the winds they generate tend to pick gulf storms up and push them from west to east making Floridas West Coast particularly vulnerable, Tom Iovino, public information specialist with Pinellas County Communications, said in a press release. The last time Pinellas County took a direct hit from a hurricane was Oct. 25, 1921. On Oct. 7, 1996, Tropical Storm Josephine caused flooding along the countys beaches and swept a tremendous amount of sand onto Gulf Boulevard, Iovino said. Hurricane Wilma, which made landfall on Oct. 24, 2005, broke several records, eventually becoming the most intense hurricane recorded in the Atlantic Basin. Iovino said that since October storms form much closer to the county, the warning time could be considerably shorter than storms forming in August and September. Residents should visit www.pinellascounty.org/emegency to verify evacuation levels and get information on disaster planning. Renowned hurricane forecasters Phillip Klotzbach and William Gray, professors with the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University, released their forecast for activity in October and November. The forecast, released Oct. 1, calls for above-average hurricane activity in the Caribbean basin. However, in a report issued Sept. 27, the two Colorado professors agreed that the season might not be as active as earlier predictions indicated. The most recent seasonal forecast called for an above-normal season, the Colorado experts said. Obviously, at this point, we realize that the seasonal forecast was a significant over-prediction, and we therefore do not expect to see the levels of activity this year that we earlier anticipated. But, it only takes one thats the anthem emergency management personnel and meteorologists sing every hurricane season, which runs June 1 through Nov. 30 in the Atlantic basin. Residents who live in areas vulnerable to hurricanes should be ready to put emergency plans into action if necessary. The Atlantic basin includes the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Season summaryIt was Sept. 11 before the first hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season formed. Three days later, a second hurricane formed about 195 miles east of Tuxpan, Mexico. According to NHC records, 2013 is the first year since 2002 that no hurricane formed through the month of August. Records show that on average at least one hurricane forms in a season by Aug. 10. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations climate experts have predicted that as many as six to nine hurricanes could form during the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. As of Oct. 6, 11 named storms have formed. NOAAs forecast calls for 13 to 19. No major hurricanes have formed.

PETERSBURG USF St. Petersburg is developing the nations first graduate certificate in food writing and photography and has gathered an advisory board to help guide the program. Janet Keeler, the award-winning food editor of the Tampa Bay Times and an adjunct journalism professor at USFSP, is coordinating the program, which is overseen by Deni Elliott, Ph.D., chair of the Journalism and Media Studies. The program, which will offer its first classes next fall, is designed for graduate students, mid-career culinary professionals and professional communicators. The 15-credit program can be completed fully online or through a combination of traditional short and semester-long classes. Public interest in all things food has exploded in recent years, whether on television, in print or on the Web, said Elliott in a press release. Elliott is the USF St. Petersburg Eleanor Poynter Jamison chair in media ethics and press policy. Food is more than sustenance. It defines cultures, provides jobs, and brings people together. We are excited to be able to offer cutting-edge knowledge and skills to harness the passion so many have for food. The program includes four required courses in multimedia reporting, digital law and ethics, special topics in food communication, and a final threecredit project. The remaining class can be earned by taking elective courses in literary food writing, science food writing, blogging/entrepreneurship, Web publishing, social media, photojournalism, or visual communications design and theory. Up to 12 credit hours from the certificate program can be applied to a masters degree in journalism and media studies or digital journalism and design. Instructors will be seasoned reporters, worldrenowned ethicists and experienced Web developers. The program is aimed at graduate degree and non-degree seeking students interested in improving their food communication skills, including food service professionals using digital media to promote their business and engage with customers, and writers and photographers looking to build an audience for online ventures and traditional media. The advisory board includes media and food industry representatives such as Kay Clark, publisher, Edible Tampa Bay; Gail Eggeman, manager, St. Petersburg Saturday Morning Market; Jeff Hearn, founder/host, Eat Cheap, Drink Rich; William T. Jackson, Ph.D., USF St. Petersburg entrepreneurship program director; Scott Keeler, photographer, Tampa Bay Times; Cathie Koch, vice president of corporate communications, Bloomin Brands Inc.; Steven Kovich, photographer; Isabel Laessig, founder and editor, Family Foodie; Pamela Lunn, owner, Dancing Goat; David Snyder, First Amendment lawyer; Terry Tomalin, outdoors editor, Tampa Bay Times; and Brian West, media and community relations manager, Publix.

Plymouth State University is a regional comprehensive university with an enrollment of approximately 4,300 undergraduate and approximately 3,000 graduate students. By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER The students are glued to their computer screens, their faces full of concentration. One student has a hard time tearing himself away from clicking and the brightly colored images on the monitor long enough to answer a reporters questions. To the kids, its like theyre playing a computer game, even though they are actually taking a placement test for reading and math. Belcher Elementary in Clearwater is one of 22 elementary and six middle schools in Pinellas County that were selected for the inaugural year of the Promise Time program with the i-Ready curriculum. These all are Title I schools, which means they have a high amount of students from low-income households. Promise Time is a partnership between the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County and Pinellas County Schools. PCS Superintendent Dr. Michael A. Grego approached JWB last spring to design an out-of-school time program to help raise reading and math scores, and out of that, Promise Time emerged. What makes Promise Time different than past programs is that now instead of having a totally separate school day and after school program, they are connected through a facilitator position. Theyre a person who during the school day is an employee during Pinellas County Schools and after school they shift to being an employee of the after school provider, whether thats the city or the YMCA, said Matt Spence, early learning project manager for JWB. Research says is really important is connecting the academic portions of the school day with whatever the academic portions of the after school program are. The facilitator can talk to the students teachers to find out if they want their student to work on anything in particular during Promise Time, and both teachers, parents and the after-school program provider can come to the facilitator with any questions, concerns or ideas, and the facilitator can organize it all and help make a seamless connection all around. The school system was able to fund 50 hours over the course of the school year for the facilitator position, and JWB is able to pick up funds for additional hours. The participating schools are divided into moderate or intensive intervention schools. For the moderate ones, JWB added funds to total 130 hours for the position, or an average of five hours a week. In the intensive intervention schools, JWB added funds for the facilitator position to total 360 hours of facilitator times, or about 10 hours each week. So that really gives the opportunity for that facilitator to individualize instruction, Spence said. To make sure students are being met on level, where they are, and with the support that they need from where they are and not where they should be. If a student is reading at a second-grade level, handing them a fourth-grade level text doesnt help. Twenty schools were deemed a moderate intervention level. Eight others are intensive intervention. For about the first two weeks of school, all of the participating students took a placement test innovatively designed to feel more like a computer game than a test that then gives instant feedback to the facilitator and tutors exactly where the students are in their studies. The program is also adaptive, Spence said. If a student gets a question right, the next one will be a little harder. If they get one wrong, the next will be a little easier, so it can find exactly what they do and do not know. But along with all of the reports the teachers get is one that shows if a student is spending less than 11 seconds on each question. If that is the case, then the teacher will know that he or she is just clicking through without trying, so the teacher can instruct the student to go back and spend more time actually working through the questions. After the initial diagnostic is complete, the program itself divides the students into groups by level. For instance, Spence said, if five students are struggling with vocabulary, they will be grouped together to work on that skill, and the program automatically provides the teacher with curriculum and lesson plans that they can use or modify that will directly address these specific areas the students need to work on. Kristen Cross, age 8, of Largo is a third-grade student at Belcher Elementary. While on one of the last days of the diagnostic placement testing, she said she enjoyed the program and likes that she gets to learn new things, like math and reading. It helps you with things that youre stuck on, Cross added. Jacobi Jackson, also an 8-year-old third-grader from Belcher Elementary who lives in Largo, hardly even noticed he was taking a placement test. His eyes kept drifting back to the monitor, wanting to keep going on it. He did stop long enough, however, to explain what he likes about the i-Ready program. It lets you play games, Jackson said. Parts of the actual test and later, the learning tools feel like games, even though the kids are acPhoto by ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLAndres Cortes, left, and Jacobi Jackson, both of Largo focus intently on the i-Ready program.

Though the program does actually reward kids progress with actual games. If they answer enough questions correctly, a game will pop up that is purely a reward, though the game will be activated only for a limited amount of time, then its back to learning again. Raylee Fleisch of Clearwater is the library, media and technology specialist at Belcher Elementary and also the facilitator for Promise Time. Belcher Elementary was the pilot program for a version of the connected school day/after-school program last year, but that was before the i-Ready program. Back then, they had to wait for their fall FAIR testing to be completed so they would have an idea of what they need to work on. However with this new program, even though the students werent even done with their diagnostic test, Fleisch had already been Briefs See PROMISE TIME, page 18A Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

During the annual enrollment period, from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to make changes to their Medicare Prescription Drug or Medicare Advantage plans. SHINE encourages beneficiaries to review their benefits each year for a variety of reasons. Individuals often experience subtle changes in their health over the course of the year, and these changes may alter the kind of care they need. This could directly affect their need for more or less health insurance, the types of prescription drugs they require or their access to particular doctors or pharmacies. Health changes also can increase costs, which can be particularly critical for Medicare beneficiaries on fixed incomes. SHINE volunteer counselors through the Area Agency on Aging, Pasco/Pinellas, provide free, unbiased one-on-one insurance counseling and information on Medicare options and prescription drug assistance for elders, their families and caregivers. Beneficiaries are encouraged to act quickly to assure a smooth transition into the 2014 benefit year. To receive help from SHINE to review and enroll in a plan, individuals may visit designated SHINE counseling sites, attend enrollment events in their local communities, or contact trained SHINE volunteer counselors at 1-800-963-5337. For a listing of SHINE counseling sites and enrollment events, visit www.floridashine.org. Ghost Run to benefit Huntingtons Disease SocietyST.

Hospital joins clinical research trialCLEARWATER Morton Plant Hospital recently enrolled a patient in a clinical research trial for Absorb, a small mesh tube that is designed to open a clogged heart vessel, restore blood flow to the heart, and then dissolve into the blood vessel over time. The clinical research trial is called ABSORB III, which is enrolling patients in the United States. Absorb, manufactured by the global health care company, Abbott, is an investigational bioresorbable vascular scaffold that is the focus of ABSORB III, the first U.S. clinical trial to evaluate the potential benefits of Absorb in comparison to a medicated metallic heart stent, also called a drug eluting stent, in patients with coronary artery disease, a form of heart disease. Morton Plant Hospital is among the few hospitals in the Tampa Bay area to be selected to participate in the ABSORB III trial, which is a double-blind research study which means neither the patient nor the doctor know if the research scaffold will be used. Normally, we have relied on metallic and drug eluting stents, to keep blocked arteries clear, which allowed many patients to avoid open heart surgery, but required patients to have a permanent metallic implant, said Patrick Cambier, M.D., in a press release. Cambier is a Morton Plant Mease interventional cardiologist and co-principal investigator. The hope of this research is that the Absorb device will allow us to use a similar procedure, but implant a device that will eventually dissolve after it has opened the artery and restored blood flow to the heart. Unlike a metallic stent that remains permanently in the body, Absorb is referred to as a scaffold to indicate that it is a temporary structure. The Absorb BVS is made of a naturally dissolvable material that is commonly used in medical implants such as dissolving sutures. Research indicates that the support provided to the coronary artery by a metal stent may only be necessary for a few months after the stent is implanted, said Bernardo Stein, M.D., Morton Plant Mease interventional cardiologist and co-principal investigator. In theory, the most significant potential advantage to an absorbable scaffold is that it not only provides the necessary support when needed after restoring blood flow, similar to a metallic stent, but also once the scaffolding is absorbed by the body, motion could return to the artery. Once the scaffold is implanted, it releases a medication intended to prevent restenosis (narrowing of the artery). The procedure is similar to angioplasty or stent placement. Absorb is placed into the artery on a balloon at the end of a thin, flexible tube. Absorb is expanded by inflating the balloon, pushing the plaque against the artery wall to enable greater blood flow. The balloon is removed, leaving Absorb to slowly release medication to the diseased area. With blood flow restored, Absorb begins dissolving. Coronary artery disease, a narrowing of one or more arteries that supply blood to the heart, is a leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Patients with CAD can experience symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath when the demand for blood to the heart is more than the hearts ability to supply blood due to blockages in the vessels that supply blood to the heart. These blockages are caused by the buildup of fat and cholesterol inside the vessel.Hancock joins dental practiceST. PETERSBURG Dr. Wade W. Hancock recently joined Dr. Paul A. Mevolis dental practice in St. Petersburg. Hancock is a graduate of the University of Florida College of Dentistry. He was handpicked because of his dedication to serve the community, offering all phases of exceptional dentistry with an individual approach. He has been an active member of various community service, church, and dental mission trip organizations. Daire receives community awardST. PETERSBURG Barbara Daire, president and CEO of Suncoast Center Inc. of St. Petersburg, recently was named the recipient of the 2013 Lois Potter Hill Community Health Partnership Award presented by the Florida Association of Community Health Centers. During Daires tenure as CEO and president of Suncoast Center Inc., the agency has grown to serving more than 25,000 children, adults, families and seniors in Pinellas, Pasco, Manatee, and Hillsborough counties. For the past 11 years Daire has been a steadfast collaborator and partner in assuring access to behavioral health services for the patients of Community Health Centers of Pinellas, embodying the mission to ensure access to everyone regardless of ability to pay. This is a unique partnership in which both are willing to take financial risks that ultimately benefit the individual and the community. Pat Mabe of Community Health Centers of Pinellas nominated Daire. The Lois Potter Hill Community Health Partnership Award recognizes individuals, civic, or religious groups who have advanced health services to the underserved by financial, material, or voluntary services to a community or migrant health organization and created public awareness and support for private participation in community health care. Suncoast Centers mission is to strengthen, protect and restore lives for a healthy community. The centers programs and services include Pinellas Countys Childrens Advocacy Center, Pinellas Countys only accredited Rape Crisis Center, and the Child Protection Team. Florida Hospital donates school suppliesTARPON SPRINGS As part of a yearly promise to assist the needs of Tarpon Springs Elementary Schools more than 500 elementary students, Florida Hospital North Pinellas employees recently donated a truckload of backpacks and school supplies for the schools teachers and students. The hospital delivered the supplies on Aug. 16, prior to the start of the new school year this week. We are thrilled to be able to help provide much needed school supplies and backpacks to our local school, said Vernon Elarbee in a press release. Elarbee is the hospitals human resources director, and coordinator of the project. Every school year our employees are very generous and donate to our School Supplies Fund so that our communitys kids can benefit. We made a promise to the school a long time ago that we will continue this effort every year Im hoping we can keep increasing our donations year by year. Florida Hospital North Pinellas, in Tarpon Springs, is a member of The Florida Hospital network of the Adventist Health System. Breath of Life center offers nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesiaLARGO Breath of Life Womens Health & Birth Center is the first in the Tampa Bay area to begin offering nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia for laboring women with their Nitronox System. This system delivers a fixed mixture of 50 percent oxygen and 50 percent nitrous oxide (better known as laughing gas) that is safe, effective, simple and popular with many laboring women. It is a primary aim of Breath of Life to allow clients free choice and autonomy in selecting the best form of labor pain management for each particular situation, said Chris Hilderbrandt, CNM, in a press release. Hilderbrandt is director of the center. In the interest of allowing clients this process of choice, we now offer nitrous oxide analgesia which has been, and is currently, used extensively worldwide as a primary form of analgesia for labor and birth.DOH-Pinellas offers no-cost mammogramsOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and many facilities are offering mammograms at reduced rates to encourage women to be screened. Should a reduced-rate mammogram detect an issue in a woman who is uninsured, there may not be low-cost alternatives for further testing or treatment. At the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, the Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program and Mammography Voucher Program offer these screenings all year at no cost to eligible low-income women who are uninsured and between the ages of 40 and 64. If a woman has her screening through these programs and a problem is found, she can get further testing at no cost and can receive treatment if she is diagnosed with breast cancer. DOH-Pinellas provides initial appointments at several locations throughout the county. To see if you qualify, call the number that corresponds with your age. If 40 to 49 years old, call 820-4117; women 50 to 64 years old should call 824-6917. For information online, go to www.PinellasHealth.com and click on the Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program link. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the U.S., and the third leading cause of cancer deaths. When to start mammogram screenings, and how often to repeat them, is a decision for a woman and her doctor, based on her health history, her risk factors and the current recommendations of professional medical organizations.

Now 5 months old, this photo was taken when he was just 6 weeks old and only four pounds. His human family Glenn, Renee and their son, Michael Cohen, all of Indian Rocks Beach wanted to always remember how small he was when he was a puppy, so they snapped this photo next to a beer can to use as size comparison. The Cohens got Baxter from a breeder in Tallahassee. Baxter loves to chase sticks and cuddle and is especially fond of belly rubs. He accompanies his human parents to work, so he gets plenty of playtime throughout the day and loves visiting with everyone. He is now learning basic tricks and commands, with Glenns favorite being high five. But the biggest reason his family thinks Baxter is so special is how lovable he is. He sleeps in his parents bed and has to always be leaning against them or resting his head on their pillow. Baxter also has a Siamese kitty sibling, Kasey. As our pet photo winner, Baxter wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@ TBNweekly.com.

Missing pets are always heartbreaking, but a new modern twist has made the lost dog or cat sign even more disturbing. Pet flipping is becoming a common occurrence, of which all pet owners need to be cautious. Pet flipping occurs when unscrupulous people find a lost pet, and instead of looking for the rightful owner, they will attempt to sell it on Craigslist or similar websites. Craigslist is an online, and free local classified ad website. Some villains have gone so far as to steal a pet from someones back yard to try and sell it on Craigslist. While this may seem farfetched, more and more stories are coming out about this practice. In Seminole, Danielle, a veterinary nurse, had her Boston terrier, Misfit, run out the front door. Within 45 minutes, it was listed for sale on Craigslist. As is usually the case, the sellers argued that it was not her dog and that they were rescuing it. This is where the great difficulty comes. Often times the police, or even the court system, must become involved to prove who the rightful owner is. Many people rely on a collar, a tag and their dog or cats appearance for identification. Collar and tags can be easily removed, and many times purebred pets can be very similar in appearance. Even if you think youve found your lost pet on Craigslist, proving it can be much more difficult. Luckily, protection is readily available in the form of a microchip. Microchips, which are the size of a grain of rice and implanted beneath the skin, are the best way to have permanent, unalterable identification of your pet. When the microchips are appropriately registered to the owner, the proof is certain. Registering the microchip, which pairs the owners information with the individual microchip number, is vital. A pet owner should always register their pets microchip with the database held by the individual microchips manufacturer. An Avid microchip should be registered in the Avid database, while an AKC microchip should be registered in the AKC database. In the United States, there is no centralized database registry, so registering with the manufacturer is the best way to ensure your name and information is attached with your pet. Lastly, if you buy (or adopt for a fee) from a stranger online or on Craigslist, please immediately take the pet to an animal hospital, animal shelter or animal services to be scanned. You do not want to be an accomplice in the theft of someones four-legged family member. Microchips have always been important in hurricane-prone Florida. We all remember the horrible stories of pets lost forever after Katrina and Charlie. Now with Pet Flipping, danger can occur on a clear day in your own backyard. Get your pets microchipped, and register the microchips, as soon as possible.Michael Rumore practices at Lake Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, and at online at www .LakeSeminoleAH.com.

Below, Wierenga blesses Linda Novacks dog Holly.Blessing of PetstSooner or later in your genealogical research you will probably develop an interest in maps. It seems a natural progression to move from an interest in recording dates and places of birth, marriage, and death, to having an active interest in exactly where those places are located on the ground and perhaps even what they look like today. Maps can go a long way in satisfying that interest. The variety of maps available also contributes to that interest. We have all seen the familiar road map, of course, but the list goes on to plat maps, insurance maps, migration maps, battle maps, topographical maps, railroad maps, and more. Each of them has been constructed to serve a definite purpose, and as a byproduct, each serves to give us genealogists information about our ancestors and their lives that is often available nowhere else. Some maps, such as plat maps, give use information specific to our ancestors. Those maps will show outlines of actual plots of land owned by individuals. We can see where they lived in relation to neighboring towns, as well as places of worship, burial, and education. We can see who their neighbors were neighbors who possibly became extended families through marriage, or life-long enemies because of property disputes. Other maps are of a more general nature, and rather than tell us about our specific ancestors, instead help up gain an understanding of their lives in a general sense. Migration maps are a good example of that. They will show routes that families followed as they moved west into the frontier. If an ancestor was located at one place for one census and then showed up in another place on the following census, knowledge of migration routes may give us clues about how that distance was covered and what life was like during the trip. As realization of the value of map research increases, we see an accompanying increase in access to maps on the Internet. Ancestry.com has a large collection of county land ownership maps covering the period 1860 to 1918, and early land ownership and township plats from 1785 to 1898. These are only a few of the many map collections on that website. The site FamilySearch.org also has many map collections in its holdings, as does the Library of Congress site at LOC.gov. Libraries are a good source of maps also. The Genealogy Center at the Largo Public Library has an extensive map collection. It is located in four locations in the Genealogy Center. The most obvious place is the Atlas stand located near the computers. Here you will find historic atlases such as for Warren County, N.Y. in 1874, Niagara County, N.Y. in 1875, and Green County, Ohio in 1896. A modern day atlas of Great Britain is also found there. One of the more valuable collections in the Atlas stand is that of Civil War maps. Another location for maps is the map case located in the print collection. Here you will find individually protected maps covering many places the world over. On top of the case is an index to help locate the specific drawer for the map you are interested in. The third location is on the bookshelves for call numbers ranging from 311 to 314. There you will find mostly gazetteers and items like the Atlas of U.S. townships in 1991, dictionaries of English and French place names, and an Atlas of historic Poland. The fourth and final location for maps is two drawers of vertical files at the opposite end of the Genealogy Center from the map case. The first drawer contains historical maps kept in binders arranged alphabetically first by states of the U.S. and then foreign countries. The second drawer contains road maps, again arranged alphabetically by state and then by foreign country. Although in genealogy we find ourselves mostly involved in searching through historical maps, modern-day maps also can be useful. In fact, to beneficially use old maps, we often have to start with modern versions and work backward. In this approach, the modern map tools found online at Google and other websites are extremely valuable. Some unique websites actually help us visualize how county and state boundaries have changed over time, especially helpful if you are trying to track down a courthouse that may house your ancestors vital records. Two sites that do this especially well are www.mapofus.org and publications.newberry.org/ahcbp. The websites I have mentioned in this column are, of course, only a few examples of the many sites available today. If you are interested, a simple Internet search will reveal many, many more. If you are at a place in your research where maps can be of value, you might find classes offered by Pinellas Genealogy Society to be helpful. Since there are so many different types of maps to make use of, the topic is divided up between two classes, free and open to the public. Keep an eye on the class schedule at the PGS website www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~flpgs/index.htm to see when they will be offered. The class list is updated frequently, so keep checking back if you at first dont see it on the schedule.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

Viewpoints 15A Leader, October 10, 2013When you write a column, you hear from people who think they have a clever magic-wand solution to intractable political issues. Washington has run up $17 trillion of debt? Pass term limits. Throw the bums out. Take away their pensions. Sure, these ideas sound as if they might help, and it must feel good to propose something, but they ignore the entrenched forces that created these morasses in the first place. In a swamp that requires hard-nosed solutions, these folks instead have faith in what is known in political parlance as shiny objects. The shiny-object-mongers have taken over the House GOP caucus. They think that gimmicks can overcome basic math and that with the right tactic, they can win a political battle without controlling either the White House or the Senate. They repeatedly have tried to defund Obamacare; they repeatedly havent had the votes in the Senate. Then they added defunding Obamacare to a bill to keep the government running; they still didnt have the votes in the Senate. Then they stuck a one-year delay of Obamacares individual mandate on the spending continuing resolution. Guess what. They didnt have the votes in the Senate. These antics did win House Republicans a government shutdown. Too bad; the Republican shutdown is what President Barack Obama and Democratic leaders wanted all along. GOP dysfunction is their shiny object that distracts voters from their inability to fix the U.S. economy. Now, for the GOP House, its all about face saving and stunts. House Speaker John Boehner keeps tossing out piecemeal funding bills to garner headlines, for example, about Democrats rejecting funding for veterans. Some GOP solons are urging party leaders to hang on for a face-saving win. Get Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to agree on a spending bill that includes a provision to delay the individual mandate or Obamacares ill-conceived medical device tax. There are two problems with that approach. First, though Democrats should be interested in compromise, theyre not. For years, the president has said that in a divided government, no one gets 100 percent of what they want, Boehner complained in USA Today. But when will his words match his actions? The answer: not when hes getting what he wants. But also, delaying the worst parts of Obamacare only helps Obamacare. Thats why the president delayed the employer mandate and other provisions in his signature legislation. Republicans shouldnt help the Affordable Care Act by kicking its shortcomings down the road. Theres no covering up the fact that the tea party already has lost. When solid conservatives such as Rep. Devin Nunes, RCalif., say the shutdown is suicidal he called the shutdown crowd lemmings with suicide vests its over. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., warned that the shutdown would lead GOP acolytes into a box canyon. Republicans know what happened and who led them into a trap. Savvy Republicans know that the best way to defeat the Affordable Care Act is to leave it alone and let it fall from its own weight. Smart partisans know when to pick their battles.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.I have an elbow problem. And it has nothing to do with drinking. For some reason, my left arm stopped working. Until I met with my doctor, I wasnt sure if I needed to take pills or spray it with WD-40. I know what you are thinking: Germonds writing about one of his silly maladies again. Why doesnt he write about somebody elses serious health problems? Point taken. How about Sen. Ted Cruz. What type of affliction would cause anybody to blabber for more than 21 straight hours? Id rather listen to the Turtleman on Animal Planet all day or one of the snarling critters he traps in somebodys barn. Hope I never run into Sen. Cruz in a bar. Hes not the kind of person Id care to bend an elbow with. Especially not my aching left elbow. Funny what goes through your mind when an extremity fails to function for a few days. Made me appreciate even more the challenges people face coping with the loss of a limb. For two days, I didnt floss with my left hand because I couldnt bend my elbow. So I bought a package of disposable miniature dental floss holders. After a 15-minute odyssey using my right hand to control the device, I was struggling to yank the string out of my mouth. The damn package didnt come with a tutorial. Coincidentally, I had a dental appointment a few days later, and I asked my hygienist for specific advice. Just do the best you can, she said. She gave me high marks for at least trying to fight the good fight against gum disease, saying shes heard it all when it comes to people not flossing, such as a patients excuse that she didnt bring floss with her when she flew to Atlanta. They dont have dental floss in Atlanta? the hygienist said.And, as far as I know, its still legal to put dental floss in your suitcase, although the airlines might charge you for flossing on the plane. Not sure how I suddenly came down with a case of tendonitis, arthritis or whatever 18letter medical term describes my condition, but I suspect it was caused by the cumulative effect of years of brandishing a racquetball racket and pounding computer keyboards. Participating in keg throwing at the Oktoberfest at Indian Rocks Beach a few years ago probably wasnt a good idea, either. Wont be doing it this year. Goliath, I aint. I also vow to refrain from pounding my fist on my furniture and speaking in the pejorative about long-winded politicians in D.C. For a couple of days, since I control my electronic mouse with my right hand, I was able to read email and perform some computer tasks with one notable exception. Typing with one hand leaves a lot to be desired. So I apologize to my readers who received some rather terse replies to their emails last week, such as yes and no. Finally, after receiving some pills from my doctor and icing down my elbow for 21 straight hours, the pain subsided. Im also studying ergonomics, which is kind of vague on whether keg throwing is a risk factor for muscular-skeletal disorders. Though Im feeling better, all the antics of our elected senators and representatives in Washington continue to leave a bad taste in my mouth. Yet another reason to floss. Try spearmint. You dont have to go to Atlanta to find it.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tger mond@TBNweekly.com.Im starting this column on Oct. 1, the first day of the federal government shutdown. So by the time the column appears, Oct. 10, the impasse in Washington may have been patched up. Also, the thoughts Im about to write may have even less validity than they do as I write them today. But Im still going to record whats on my mind at this juncture. FIREARM PURCHASE. I dont own a gun, and never have. I havent harbored strong feelings on either side of the gun ownership debate, because I know too many gun and anti-gun advocates who are equally intelligent and trustworthy. But today I feel myself tilting toward buying a handgun, learning how to use it, and keeping it handy in my home and as I go about my outside errands. My feelings stem from a growing and, I hope, unjustified suspicion that the day may come when huge numbers of Americans, of all persuasions, take to the streets in search of someone (and maybe anyone) to shoot. They would shoot out of rage, out of fear, or just out of the hope that the shootings would somehow mow down some of the scoundrels who have brought this proud nation to its knees, or close to it. If or when such anarchy arrives, I think Ill want to have a firearm close at hand to defend myself against whoever breaks down my door. One handgun, or even several, probably wont be enough to turn back the enraged, bloodthirsty marauders who will fill our streets. But at least Ill have the short-lived satisfaction that I went down fighting, instead of passively awaiting my fate. This morning, within hours of the shutdowns beginnings, angry veterans broke open the fences that prevented them from visiting a WWII memorial site in Washington. Could this be a harbinger of what may happen on a grander scale if our alleged leaders in Washington dont soon stop the national disintegration that is taking place? I hope not, because violence has seldom been a solution to any major problem. A final argument for my buying a firearm is this admittedly superficial reason: If most of my friends and neighbors are packing heat, why shouldnt I? MOVING TO NEW ZEALAND. As much as I love my country, I cant help asking myself, at times, where on earth I could go that would be a refuge from the turmoil that keeps spilling out of Wolf Blitzers yap every time I switch on CNN. Ive heard that Fiji and Bora Bora, in the South Pacific, are idyllic spots. Someone once told me that Sweden is a lovely place to live if you like blonde women and dont mind the cold. Costa Rica has attracted many American retirees in recent years. The nation that sticks in my mind, however, is New Zealand. Im not sure why, unless its the location of the place, far away from much of civilizations troubles. The flaw in all of those getaway fantasies, of course, is that theres nowhere on earth in 2013 where you completely escape from todays looming threats. Over the past 50 years, or less, the finances and economics of the 194 nations of the globe have become more closely tied up with each other. To a frightening degree, we are all co-dependent for food, energy sources, scarce metals for computer products, military support, consumer spending and other important things. We are in the grip of globalism, and now theres no safe place to run to. THE SAVIOR ON A WHITE HORSE. In the history of nations, governments have occasionally fallen into such confusion and disrepair that the panic-stricken citizenry has cried out for salvation from any direction. Such times are tailor-made for someone on a white horse who promises to ride to the rescue and set things straight, even at the risk of eventually making things worse. Napoleon Bonaparte comes to mind, as does Adolph Hitler. They saved the day, but led their countrymen down the road to ruin. In the 1950s Sen. Joseph McCarthys anti-communist crusade caused millions of frightened Americans to cry out, Save us, Joe! I dont think the USA is ripe today for a white-horse savior, but that could quickly change. Later this month, if our geniuses in Washington manage to default on paying the bills the government owes, it could trigger the collapse of our economic system and that of many other nations. If that should happen, neither a handgun nor a plane ticket to New Zealand will save any of us. A centuries-old Chinese curse says, May you live in interesting times. Lets hope we soon see the arrival of worldwide boredom.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

But it appears that reforms approved last year by Congress may make things much worse, in unexpected and unintended ways. To avoid disrupting lives, businesses, markets and government, Congress could and should have suspended the floodinsurance rate hikes.Miami Herald, Oct. 3Texting and driving ban not tough enoughIt took a frustrating five years, but, finally, texting while driving is officially banned in the Sunshine State. The ban, along with several other new laws, went on the books Tuesday, Oct. 1 and while critics say it is too weak to become an effective publicsafety tool, its supporters say that at least it is a good start. Maybe so, but well only know how good this new ban is after its been enforced for a while. The major weakness is that the Legislature made texting while driving a secondary offense, meaning texting drivers can only be ticketed if they are pulled over for another traffic violation.The Tallahassee DemocratOur opinion: This is greatness?Its time to assign some blame in this government shutdown mess. So, lets place it squarely where it belongs: on everybody. This is not a disagreement about government funding, or even about the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. No, this is a battle that has been brewing for years, with our nations capital slowly breaking into factions that each seem to have only one goal wiping out the opposition.

These supplemental recreational red snapper seasons are for 2013 only. The minimum size limit in state and federal waters is 16 inches, and the daily bag limit is two per harvester, per day. There is a zero daily bag and possession limit for captain and crew on for-hire vessels. Anglers are required to use circle hooks and use devices to take hooks out when fishing for any reef species, including red snapper, in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters. The requirement to use venting tools in federal waters was removed on Sept. 3. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will consider adopting similar changes at a future meeting. The intent of these rules is to help conserve fishery resources by increasing the chances for a fish to survive after being caught and released.

Leader, October 10, 2013 Robert Bob Lee TROUTRobert Bob Lee Trout, age 92, passed away September 26, 2013, in SedroWoolley, Washington, of a lung infection. He was born to Helen and Howard Trout on October 18, 1920, in Pontiac, Michigan. Bob moved to Marion, Indiana in 1960 and worked for General Motors until he retired in 1976 after 34 years of service. Prior to working at General Motors, Bob served his country in the Navy as an Aviation Machinist Mate Second Class during WW II. Bobs time in the Navy gave him a love for world travel and other cultures. He loved sharing his many photo albums that journal his travels abroad. He was never short on stories and always eager to show the foreign currency collection he had accumulated. In addition to his love for travel, early in life Bob loved to ride his motorcycles, spend time hunting, and was a very accomplished golfer. For his retirement, he relocated to Largo, Florida. Bob was an avid fisherman and loved spending time on the Pier in Indian Rocks Beach or dancing at the supper club with his friends at Villa Capri. He is survived by his two sons, Lewis Robert Trout and his wife, Susan, and Kevin Bex Trout and his wife, Deborah; grandchildren, Adam Trout and his wife, Aimee, and Cody, Bex, David and Rachel Trout; and great-grandchildren, Savanah and Caleb. Bob lived a long, full life; he was a loving, supportive friend, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be missed and remembered fondly by the many people he touched. An Interment Ceremony will be held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, October 26, 2013, at Sylvan Abbey, Clearwater, Florida.

Capt. John Heidemann and I had arrived at the southern end of our study area, a quietly notorious bay for its general lack of dolphin sightings. What with the mackerel running offshore, there had been few dolphins in the estuary that day. But conditions also made it hard to spot them. Utterly blue skies blending with peat-colored seas from recent rains created an unexpected (and unwelcome) camouflage for gray animals. Nonetheless, we spotted a small group of dolphins at the far end of the notorious bay and headed over. Each of the five dolphins surfaced near the boat in turn. Two of them, Bet and her 2-year-old calf Ballou, surfaced a second time. Bet is particularly likely to greet the boat with a close encounter like this. I leaned over the gunwale eagerly to see how they were doing, especially Ballou, who had recovered from a particularly tough early childhood physically. But they did not surface again. In the marvelous cooperation among wild dolphins, the quintet somehow communicated to one another that the plan was to duck underwater and zip to a little bridge as fast as they could without breathing. We next spied them in distant tea-colored waters, their vaporous exhalations creating gossamer columns against the dark shadows of the little bridge. We needed to secure a few more photos for the federal record before they went under the little bridge and approached a little faster than normal. But as Capt. Heidemann skillfully applied what passes for boat brakes, Bet and Ballou launched over the water in the gesture dolphins use to ask to surf. Consequently, instead of stopping, Capt. Heidemann swung past at modest speed. Indeed, Bet and Ballou vanished into our wake. They mostly surfed underwater upside-down, their gleaming bellies skyward. This was no simple surfing moment, though: It was the first time I have seen little Ballou surf! Considering that some dolphins outside your doorstep have surfed by the tender age of two weeks, it was good to see this undaunted 2-year-old catch up on lost time. Her leap in todays picture was spectacularly reinforcing. Then, as a team, Bet and Ballou leapt out of the wake together and headed back to their schoolmates. As they left I thought, I have some bad news for you, Bet. The risks of living in nature have nothing to do with human superstitions. It was just coincidence that it was Friday the 13th, when that speeding boat zoomed over a local female bottlenose dolphin, Face, and her delightful yearling son, Facet, in a fatal encounter. In the two weeks since that grizzly incident, Bet and Ballou were the only new dolphins to appear in the study area. Bottlenose dolphins are very intelligent in general, and our local dolphins have shown some startlingly profound timing at times. YouTube videos of emotional reunions assure us that lions, gorillas and elephants have long-term memories of their friends, human and animal. I had to wonder if there was anything notable about the timing of Bet and Ballous return. There were lots of other good reasons to go into our database to see what kind of relationship Bet had with Face before she died. One when Bet was wounded by a shark in 2007, it was Face who accompanied her through the first tenuous days of her recovery. By doing so, Face may have put herself and yearling Babyface in danger. As such, Faces behavior raised questions about the basis of the famous dolphin reputation for empathy for the injured and dying. For a species to get credit for empathy, that empathy must start by appearing in individuals. Face may have been one of those exceptional individuals. Two Face had been very friendly with Bets mom Tanks. That meant that when Bet was a baby at her mothers side, she saw Face often. After Tanks passed on in 2011, Bet and Face quadrupled their time together. Three in 2012, Bets calf Ballou was struck by a singular body condition that made her very sick for many months. When she was almost fully recovered, she still could not quite get away and a shark bit off part of her dorsal fin. During those months, Face and Bet doubled their time together. This year in 2013, before Friday the 13th, they were spending almost half of their time together. How can I say that Bet and Face began to spend more time together than before? Data. The technical scientific term for animal friendship is an association. Associations between animals are measured with the coefficient of association or COA. There are a couple of formulas for calculating COAs. Generally, the coefficient is a ratio calculated by doubling the number of times a pair of animals was seen together and dividing it by the combined number of times they were seen at all. Mother-calf pairs have a COA of 1.00, indicating that they are together 100 percent of the time. COAs of .30 to .50 are often used to indicate true friendship. I generated COAs for Face and Bet across the years of our study and found evidence of what we might call, in human terms, a growing friendship. Their COAs for the last two years are .35 and .45, respectively. As Dolphin Watch has reported, Face had many associations. Bet mainly had Face.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Old Pinellas Bayway Bridge becomes artificial reefThe old Pinellas Bayway Bridge became part of the Pinellas Countys artificial reef system in the Gulf of Mexico over the summer. About 12,500 tons of bridge material from the demolition of the old Bayway Bridge went to the South County Reef. The deployments began in May and were completed by mid-September. Orion Marine Group Inc., who was contracted by the Florida Department of Transportation to demolish the old Bayway Bridge and construct a new four-lane high-level bridge, donated the bridge material. The Indian Shores and Treasure Island II Reefs also received some new material; each received 50 large reef balls. The project was funded in part through a grant from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to provide new fishing and diving opportunities. The reefs provide valuable underwater habitats for marine life. There are 43 reef sites along the Gulf Coast of Pinellas County from Tarpon Springs to St. Pete Beach, located from 200 yards to 38 miles offshore, and one in Tampa Bay located northeast of the St. Petersburg Municipal Pier. Pinellas County Solid Waste manages the Pinellas County Artificial Reef Program in coordination with state and federal agencies.

PROMISE TIME, from page 10A18A Schools Leader, October 10, 2013 LOWTLOWT091913 100313 101013 092613 able to pull a preliminary report to see how they were doing so far. Im able to see right away, pinpointing, so were not losing time trying to find out what the kids need, Fleisch said. Its right there. Before, we were able to find out what the kids needed with our FAIR testing and our FCAT, but what to do about it? And thats the nice thing about this i-Ready program because it gives you ready-made lesson plans. These lesson plans are written out by professionals, Spence said, and help make better use of teachers time. The students will re-take the diagnostic mid-year and at the end of the year, said Debbie Volk, senior researcher at the JWB. Meanwhile, tutors and the facilitators have plenty of real-time data at their fingertips to track progress, included colorcoded charts that indicate what grade-level each student is at in each area. Michele John of Clearwater is an English as a Second Language teacherat Belcher Elementary as well as a tutor for the Promise Time program. If a teacher tells students to open up a book, some kids will immediately shut down, John said. However, these computerized lessons speak the kids language and engages them in the lessons. A lot of times, when students are in that situation, theres that constant, I dont think Ill ever succeed because Im being held back by the situation Im living in, John said. But if they realize that their lives are dictated by the actions that they do, not what other people do, and the only people who can hold themselves and they realize the potential that they have, they will be much more willing to become involved and focus on achieving their dreams and different successes in school. Especially when programs such as this are exciting and not dry, it can help those students realize that these skills are something that will help them move forward in their future, John said. Promise Time also has a take-home component where kids can log on through the Internet at home to continue their lessons and games at home. Because of how individualized i-Ready is, kids will be met on their level, no matter what level that is. If after-school kids happen to be gifted students, the program will allow them to work ahead and encounter new challenges, lessons and projects so they wont be bored. Additionally, the Promise Time program helps teach more than just academics. The ability to stay on task in the classroom, the ability to stand in line and to exhibit appropriate behavior and all of those things that are non-cogitative skills, Spence said. Those are all skills that, given more time in the day, you can really focus on, Spence said. But during the school day, with 18 to 20 students in a class, the teacher really doesnt have time to do those extra pieces. So thats really where you see enormous gains socially, emotionally and academically. Also, after school programs in general help keep kids on track and out of trouble, Spence added. Research has shown that the prime time for kids to get into trouble is between 3 and 7 p.m., so this offers positive, structured, supervised activities. Of course, the kids have already had a long day at school, so the Promise Time program is broken up so it isnt all continuous studying. Tutoring at Belcher Elementary begins at 3:05 and lasts for two hours, Fleisch said, and tutors spend 30 minutes each day with each child or group. The remaining time is organized by the sponsoring after-school program organization. In the case of Belcher Elementary, that is the YMCA of the Suncoast. They get to work on other, broader skills, fun activities, and hands-on projects that connect to what kids are learning during the regular school day. Some of the components that we cover are leadership skills, college and career readiness, arts education, and 21st century skills, said Jennifer Crabtree of Clearwater, operating director of Pinellas School-Aged Programs of the YMCA of the Suncoast. The YMCA staff is also able to do hands-on projects and games that disguise learning, Crabtree said, such as learning fractions with dice or M&Ms. Linda Thomas, school-age program management director with the YMCA of the Suncoast, added that they learn how to cook healthy recipes which they can then take home to their families. Therefore, the Promise Time program is also encouraging healthy eating which also can filter into the home life. On Fridays at Belcher is Club Day, when the kids partake in fun activity clubs and field trips. Having all of these fun additions to the traditional school day can make kids excited to come to school and change their attitude about school, Crabtree said. In the end, what all of the parties involved want, from the JWB and Pinellas County School system to the individual schools and sponsored after-school providers, is to help the kids learn, have fun while doing it, and make a positive impact for their futures.

When I was about 8, we took a trip to Las Vegas and the Cirque du Soleil show Love had billboards all over the place, Charlie explained. I asked my dad what that was all about. It was the first time I really listened to The Beatles. Charlies dad bought him every Beatles CD. I was hooked, Charlie said. I was learning the drum parts to every song, trying to sing like Paul McCartney and trying to figure out all those chords. That really took me to the next level. Charlies younger brother Kevin followed the same path. My brother and my dad were always listening and playing music, so I was always around it, Kevin said.

Clockwise from left are Klyde Jones, Freddy V, Rocky Bryant, Alan Gorrie and Onnie McIntyre.The Ries Brothers will be the youngest lead-in act to the headliner in the 34-year history of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday. This local band from Clearwater consists of Charlie, 18, and Kevin, 14. They will be joined on stage by Vini Lopez, Bruce Springsteens original drummer and founding member of the E Street Band. It was 40 years ago when Lopez along with Springsteen and the E Street Band opened up for Chicago on a 36-venue tour, which included Madison Square Garden. The Ries Brothers play extensively around the Tampa Bay area and have played in Los Angeles and the Midwest. Older brother Charlie has a very unique talent of playing multiple instruments at once. He is the lead singer for the band, plays drums with his right hand and simultaneously plays keyboard base with his left. Kevin is an extremely talented guitar player who also helps out with the background vocals and songwriting for the duo. The brothers have recorded CDs of their original music in both Tampa and Nashville. They even filmed a video for the song I Need You, which can be viewed on YouTube. The Ries Brothers success hardly came overnight. Their passion for music began at an early age. I have just always felt connected to it, said older brother Charlie. Listening to the radio, I wanted to be able to produce those sounds and figure out what they were doing. See JAZZ, page 4B Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

If those elements make up the recipe for a successful flick, the chefs in charge of preparing Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 doubled no, tripled most of the ingredients. Seriously, the filmmakers must have been binging on sugar cubes from preproduction through postproduction. Kids will find the shiny packaging irresistible: The visuals are surprisingly stunning, the pacing extraordinarily brisk and the cuteness level well, its as cute as a button on a kitten in a tutu with a pink polka-dot bow. Fortunately, there is a respectable story to buttress all that glittery surface material. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where the first film in Sony Pictures Animations franchise left off. At the end of the first film, inventor Flint Lockwood and his friends believed they had saved the world. They thought they had destroyed his most infamous invention the Flint Lockwood Diatomic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator, or FLDSMDFR for short. The FLDSMDFR turned water into food causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes. In the sequel, Flint discovers his invention actually survived and that it is now creating food-animals. These foodimals soon take over Swallow Falls, the island home of Flint and his friends. In charge of a clean-up operation, super-inventor Chester V, Flints childhood idol and CEO of Live Corp., taps Flint to locate FLDSMDFR before the foodimals have a chance to leave the island and take over the world. Flint and his friends travel back to Swallow Falls and face hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other foodimals. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 borrows the sense of wonder expressed in the early scenes of Jurassic Park when revealing the world of the foodimals. Audiences also will find a similar theme at work: Science, unchecked by a moral compass, often leads to bad things. In this film, it is Chester V who lacks principles. Though his friends are quick to spot Chester Vs duplicity, Flint, blinded by his adoration, is easily manipulated and gradually finds himself estranged from his comrades. The voice cast includes Bill Hader as Flint, Anna Faris as Samantha Sam Sparks, James Caan as Tim Lockwood, Will Forte as Chester V, Andy Samberg as Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Movie review Photo courtesy of SONY PICTURES ANIMATION From left, Manny (Benjamin Bratt), Earl (Terry Crews), Flint (Bill Hader), Brent (Andy Samberg), Steve the Monkey (Neil Patrick Harris) and Samantha (Anna Faris) react to one of the foodimals on Swallow Falls in Sony Pictures Animations Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

The film showcases two relationships as it develops its narrative. Flint continues to have issues with his widowed father, unable to connect fully with him despite his fathers newfound confidence in his son. Interestingly, it is Tim who finds greater purpose and, in doing so, bridges the fatherson gap. Equally important is the evolution of the relationship between Chester V and Barb, the superinventors talking and lipstickwearing orangutan with a human brain. Barb plays the role of obedient assistant, mistaking Chester Vs endless mandates and demands for signs of friendship. Barb is eventually forced to recognize his bullying demeanor as tyrannical oppression. Visually, the animation in Sonys franchise differs from Disneys animated features. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 features larger-than-life character designs, sometimes wildly exaggerated facial expressions and radiantly outlandish landscapes. The foodimals gradually become the heart of the film, and the filmmakers went to great lengths to deliver a delectable smorgasbord of brilliantly imagined food-animal mash-ups. Kids will love the look of the film as well as the comic wordplay. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is full of fun foodie puns that keep younger audiences laughing, from the leek in the boat to a necessary cutting of the cheese web. What else would a cheespider weave? Adults will appreciate the stunning visuals and cultural references, although overindulging in REVIEW, from page 2Bthe endless puns may lead to an upset tummy for some. The key ingredients in the narrative keep the film interesting for adults and serve as subtle lesson for younger viewers. Overall, the second course in the franchise is as appetizing as the first, even though watching it is likely to lead to brief episodes of hyperactivity.Photo courtesy of SONY PICTURES ANIMATION Flint and his friends discover how FLDSMDFR has transformed Swallow Falls in Sony Pictures Animations Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

At left, Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth star in Romeo & Juliet. Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Captain PhillipsGenre: Action, drama and thriller Cast: Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Barkhad Abdi, Max Martini, Yul Vazquez, Michael Chernus, Chris Mulkey, Corey Johnson, David Warshofsky, John Magaro and Angus MacInnes Director: Paul Greengrass Rated: PG-13 Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is through director Paul Greengrasss distinctive lens simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabamas commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.Machete KillsGenre: Action Cast: Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr., Walt Goggins, William Sadler, Demian Bichir and Mel Gibson Director: Robert Rodriguez Rated: R Machete Kills is an action-packed thrill ride about the adventures of legendary secret agent Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo). In his latest mission, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President (Carlos Estevez) to stop a crazed global terrorist (Mel Gibson) from starting a nuclear war. With a bounty on his head, Machete faces death at every turn from an all-star cast of deadly assassins. Breaking all the rules, visionary director Robert Rodriguez leads this star-studded ensemble on one of the wildest adventures to save the world ever captured on film!Romeo & JulietGenre: Drama Cast: Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgard Director: Carlo Carlei Rated: PG-13 The families of Montague and Capulet use any excuse to publicly fight in the streets of Verona, drawing a strict rebuke from the Prince (Stellan Skarsgrd). But young Romeo (Douglas Booth) of the Montagues is not interested he is far too in love with Rosaline, a cousin to the Capulets, a romance which his cousin Benvolio (Kodi Smit-McPhee) urges him not to pursue. But that night, there is to be a masked celebration at the Capulet estate, and Romeo manages to secure an invitation. The Capulet household prepares for the event, where Lord and Lady Capulet (Damian Lewis, Natascha McElhone) hope that their daughter Juliet (Hailee Steinfeld) will accept the advances of young Count Paris (Tom Wisdom). A free spirit little interested in romance, Juliet seems more interested in bantering with her nurse (Lesley Manville) than listening to her parents. At the ball, Romeo instantly forgets his feelings for Rosaline when he spies Juliet; she is likewise struck dumb when she sees Romeo. They dance briefly, noted by Juliets cousin Tybalt (Ed Westwick), who is told by Lord Capulet to let them be and not start trouble. Later, Romeo and Juliet are dismayed to learn that their new loves are of the rival family; undaunted, Romeo spies Juliet on her balcony and boldly declares his love for her. Will their boldness and bravery in love result in eternal happiness or tragedy?For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the leftside menu.

We went to visit the Hard Rock Caf and took a tour of the memorabilia they had there Kevin was particularly floored by something he saw in the John Lennon Room. I saw a video of Jimi Hendrix and also one of his guitars, Kevin said. I couldnt believe what he was doing. After that, I had to find out and had to try to do that. It took a while to learn some of his songs, but there is nothing like that feeling when you learn something you thought was so hard. This summer, the brothers were two of only 25 musicians ages 14 to 21 in the state of Florida to be selected for the LA Grammy Museum Music Revolution Project in conjunction with Ruth Eckerd Hall. Following that honor, the brothers learned that they would be performing at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday. Its hard to describe how it feels, The Ries Brothers said in a recent email interview. Its been our dream for as long as we remember, to play on a huge stage like that. The fact that were playing before Chicago makes it even more amazing. Finding out that they would be opening for an iconic group like Chicago delighted the brothers. Theyre music legends, the brothers said. We really couldnt believe it when we heard the news. I know there was a lot of jumping up and down. Were just really pumped and excited now. The Ries Brothers also are looking forward to being part of the audience at this years festival. Really, we are looking forward to seeing all of the acts, they said. Chicago, of course, is our No. 1, but there are going to be so many amazing bands that we really want to watch and learn from them all. For information on The Ries Brothers, visit www.riesbrothers.com.Festival headlinersC h i c a g o headlines the first day of the festival, taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. The legendary rock band with horns, Chicagos wealth of lifetime achievements include a Grammy Award, multiple American Music Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor and keys to and proclamations from an impressive list of U.S. cities.

An incredible 25 of their 32 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards.

He has since expanded his career into producing hit jazz albums, such as Boney James Trust in 1992, and releasing four of his own albums since his debut release Up Front in 2004. The 2011 Canadian Smooth Jazz Best Vocalist nominee currently has more than 40 No. 1 hits on the Radio & Records smooth jazz chart, and is considered to be the genres top producer. Carlton is an American jazz guitarist, dividing his recording time between solo recordings and session appearances with popular bands. He has won four Grammys for his performances and compositions as well as 19 nominations. T o w e r o f P o w e r headlines Saturdays lineup. According to a press release from Webster & Associates LLC, Towers musical odyssey actually began in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen Doc Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilios house, Emilios father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: Hire that guy, hes got something. Doc and his signature baritone sax sound were now in the band, and on Aug. 13, 1968, Tower of Power, as they are known today, began playing gigs and soon became very well known in the area. Many other bands came out of the San Francisco Bay area in the late s bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Big Brother, Journey, Cold Blood and others all helped to define the San Francisco Sound. Tower of Powers big break came after playing at a Tuesday night audition at the Fillmore in 1970, when the band was signed to Bill Grahams San Francisco records and their first album, East Bay Grease, was recorded. All of the compositions were original tunes written by Castillo and Kupka. Their next album, Bump City, was recorded on the Warner Bros. label, and this led to a string of hits and memorable albums that include many of the songs that fans come out in force to hear, even to this day. Tower of Power celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2008 at a very special reunion show at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco. In addition to the 10 current members of the band, another 20 musicians and vocalists that at one time held a position with the band appeared with them. The show was filmed and is available on DVD. Of the 10 current members, Emilio Castillo, Rocco Prestia, Stephen Kupka, and David Garibaldi are four of the bands founding members. B r a n d i C a r l i l e takes the stage Sunday evening, closing out the festival. In her early 20s, Carlile landed a record deal with Columbia Records and with the guidance of producer Rick Rubin recorded and released her debut album in early 2005. She recorded the album with her twin bothers and initially reluctant band members Phil and Tim Hanseroth. T-Bone Burnett produced Carliles second effort, the 2007 album The Story. The album reached No. 58 on the Billboard 200 and features her brothers along with drummer Matt Chamberlain, cellist Josh Neumann and backing vocals by the Indigo Girls on the Cannonball track. The song The Story received significant television exposure, helping to broaden Carliles audience base. The song was used in an episode of Greys Anatomy and later in advertisements for the Travel Channel series Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. Her most recent album, Bear Creek, was released in 2012.

PETERSBURG In support of his latest album Feeling Mortal, country music icon Kris Kristofferson will make his only Tampa Bay appearance Wednesday, Oct. 16, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Presented as part of the Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road series, tickets start at $45. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Kristofferson is a Country Music Hall of Famer who ranks among the most versatile of American talents. Hes been a Golden Gloves boxer, a Rhodes scholar, a college football player, an acclaimed actor, a military officer, a helicopter pilot, a Grammy-winner, a screw-up and an icon, and now he finds himself releasing the third Don Wasproduced album in a twilight years trilogy. Feeling Mortal follows 2009s Closer To The Bone and 2006s This Old Road in examining hardwon grace. Born in 1936, Kristofferson took a tortuous path toward country stardom. An award-winning short story writer as well as a Golden Gloves boxer, he graduated from Pomona College in 1958 with a degree in creative writing. From there, he attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. While in England, he began performing as Kris Carson, playing country and folk music. In 1960, Kristofferson joined the United States Army, serving as a helicopter pilot in Germany. He was offered a teaching position at West Point. He turned it down in order to pursue his dream of becoming a successful songwriter. At first, Kristofferson struggled. He took whatever work he could find to pay the bills, including working as a janitor at Columbia Records. Dave Dudley best remembered for his country hit Six Days on the Road recorded Kristoffersons Viet Nam Blues in 1966. This single helped establish Kristofferson as an emerging songwriter and, over the next few years, more of his original songs reached the charts, recorded by musicians such as Billy Walker & the Tennessee Walkers, Ray Stevens, Jerry Lee Lewis and Faron Young. In 1969, Roger Miller recorded Kristoffersons song Me and Bobby McGee. The song reached No. 12 on the U.S. Country chart. Gordon Lightfoot also had success with the song in 1970. Janis Joplin covered the song on her 1971 album Pearl. Her version reached No. 1 on the U.S. Hot 100 chart. Kristofferson released his own debut album on Monument Records in 1970. Kristofferson featured both new songs and previous hits. His second album, The Silver Tongued Devil and I, reached No. 4 on the U.S. Country charts in 1971 and was followed by Border Lord in 1972. Kristoffersons fourth album, Jesus Was a Capricorn, was released in 1972 and featured the No. 1 hit Why Me. Kristofferson also spends part of his time focusing on an acting career which began in 1971 in The Last Movie, directed by Dennis Hopper. Over the years, he has appeared in dozens of films, including roles in Alice Doesnt Live Here Anymore, Convoy, Heavens Gate, Blade and Payback. He won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor Musical or Comedy for his role in A Star Is Born in 1976. More recently, he portrayed Reed Haskett, father of Clay Haskett, in the film Dolphin Tale about Clearwater Marine Aquariums best-known dolphin resident, Winter.Limited immortalityKris Kristofferson remembers immortality. Nothing could kill me, he says, recalling his 1960s days in Nashville, when he roared for years on end, somehow finding time amidst the chaos to change the language of country music. In a biography provided by his publicist, he reflects on his wild days. I was rolling cars and wrecking motorcycles, drinking and doing everything I could to die early. But it didnt work. In fact, Kristofferson is 76 now and on his 28th album the aptly titled Feeling Mortal. Going back to the beginning, the songs have been reflections of where I was at that point in my life, he says. I always try to be as honest as I can in the songwriting, otherwise theres no point in doing it: I might as well be doing an advertising job or something. And what Im finding, to my pleasant surprise at this age, is that Im more inclined to laughter than tears. I hope Ill feel this creative and this grateful until they throw dirt over me. Kristofferson and Was spent three days recording Feeling Mortal, cutting 20 songs and picking 10, then bolstering the basic tracks with stellar instrumental work from guitarist Mark Goldenberg, pedal steel master Greg Leisz, keyboardist Matt Rollins, violinist and vocalist Sara Watkins, bassist Sean Hurley and drummer Aaron Sterling. Above all, Kristofferson is happy to be happy, grateful to be grateful, and wholly unwilling to take the credit for the wondrous way its all worked out. In the end, Feeling Mortal is a melodic note of gratitude. Photo by MARY ELLEN MARKKris Kristofferson is touring in support of his new album Feeling Mortal. He will play the Palladium at St. Petersburg College Oct. 16. LOOKING AHEAD, from page 2B Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO An intoxicated driver of a vehicle that crashed on Christmas night 2011, killing two of its passengers, was extradited from Uruguay to face two charges of vehicular homicide Oct. 4. Diego Cavalieri, now 24, was driving with alcohol and THC in his system when he attempted to pass another vehicle on Indian Rocks Road, lost control and crashed, according to the Largo Police Department. Witnesses saw the 2007 Ford Fusion driving recklessly that night. It was later determined he was driving 70 mph in a 35 mph zone. At around 10:55 p.m., in front of the Indian Rocks Road campus of the Largo Medical Center, Cavalieri tried to pass a 2000 Buick Century. He lost control and drove off the road. He attempted to correct the swerving, but instead, crossed in front of the Buick and was T-boned. The resulting crash killed two of his passengers Thomas Williams, 25, and Sean Wilson, 22, and seriously injured another, Timothy Talbot, 23. Cavalieri fled the country days after the crash and before the investigation of the crash was completed. Largo Police Department charged him with two counts of vehicular homicide and two counts of reckless driving causing serious injuries. With the help of the State Attorneys Office and the State Department, a warrant for his arrest was served and an international warrant was entered via Interpol. U.S. Marshals arrested Diego in Uruguay, and the Uruguayan Supreme Court signed off on his extradition; the first extradition from Uruguay since the 1950s, according to U.S. Marshals Service. Largo police booked Cavalieri into the Pinellas County Jail the evening of Oct. 4, after the U.S. Marshals escorted him from Uruguay. He remains in jail awaiting trial.

TORRESLARGO Asking for just a few more minutes before Largo commissioners left the workshop Oct. 8 to catch the Rays game, City Manager Mac Craig emphasized the importance of the stormwater presentation they had just heard. Your action on that in the future will probably be the most important thing that you do for the city of Largo, he said. Some day, were going to be drinking that stormwater. The citys entire stormwater system which is designed to carry rain and the ensuing runoff pollution off of streets and lawns and out to major bodies of water is getting old. What we are seeing more and more of is localized flooding: street flooding and yard flooding. And while the localized flooding is not a risk of major public safety and property damage, it is a nuisance to our residents, said city engineer Leland Dicus. The problem has been compounded over the last year due to higher rainfall. But thats not the only reason why localized flooding has increased. Much of the stormwater infrastructure was built 30 and 50 years ago, when most of the city was developed. Its reaching the end of its service life, Dicus said. Its not that we just need to mow a ditch, or mow a swale or clean out a driveway culvert. Its that the culvert is crushed. And that the ditch and the swale is completely silted in, and its going to require major rehab to return it to good condition. The increasing infrastructure failures have diverted the attention of staff away Largo High defeatsClearwater 35-7Osceola scored on its first possession to tie the game 7-7 but Largos defense took over and Osceola never made it to the end zone again.

The Largo Golf Course hosted an open house featuring the sport Oct. 5, followed by the Tampa Bay FootGolf Open Oct. 6. The event was a joint venture of the Florida FootGolf Association and the American FootGolf League. FootGolf is played on shortened holes with players kicking a soccer ball toward 21-inch diameter cups. The Largo FootGolf course, a par-71 course with a 2,447yard layout, is the eighth certified course in the nation to offer the new sport and one of only two such courses in Florida. Regular tee times for FootGolf will be available Saturdays and Sundays, noon to close beginning Saturday, Oct. 12. Rates are, for 18 holes: $20 to ride and $15 to walk or for nine holes: $15 to ride and $10 to walk. A $5 discount is available for groups of 12 or more. Largo Golf Course is at 12500 Vonn Road. For more information or to book a tee time, call the Pro Shop at 518-3024. An electronic FootGolf tee time system is still in the works, but more details about the sport and the course are available at www.largofootgolf.com.New sport, FootGolf, opens at Largo Golf CourseCounty readies navigator program By SUZETTE PORTERNational media sources reported a huge surge in interest when the federal Health Insurance Marketplace opened Oct. 1. But, the same wasnt true at Pinellas County Health and Community Services. Natalie D. Jackson, program administrator, at the countys H&CS, said Oct. 3 that only about 20 to 25 calls had come in from people asking about the marketplace. As of yesterday, weve had seven people come in, she said. She wasnt concerned about the low numbers since the agency is still working to get its Navigator program up and running. Pinellas County received a $600,000 grant from the federal government to fund the hiring and support of navigators, who will assist residents with the new health insurance exchange. Jackson said all navigators hired by H&CS had not yet completed the certification process required to do their jobs. She said the shutdown of the federal government had reduced the number of project officers available to certify navigators. Still, she is confident that everyone will be certified and the countys program would be up and running by the target date of Oct. 14. October 1 marked the beginning of the period when people could begin exploring the program to find out about the different plans and their eligibility for tax relief. This is the time to understand what it is and whether it is beneficial to you, Jackson said.

The city will begin a comprehensive assessment of the stormwater system in order to tackle more projects like this one.

4A Largo Leader, October 10, 2013your plan, do your research to make sure the plan meets your needs. Open enrollment continues until March 31, 2014, so there is no rush to get signed up right away, she said. People who have health insurance through their employer dont have to worry about a penalty come tax time. People without insurance, however, should be looking into the new program to learn what they need to do. She recommends visiting www.healthcare.gov, which has information on many health insurance topics and provides specific plans and prices per state. Health insurance coverage can start as soon as Jan. 1, 2014. County residents also can call 464-8411 to set up an appointment with a counselor. Maggie Hall, spokesperson for the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, said due to a state edict, the health department is not allowed to participate in the navigator program. Instead, the agency is directing people who come in to their clinics to the county.Scammers are geared up and readyWhile the government continues to fine tune and ready programs to respond to people interested in the health insurance marketplace, scam artists are already on the prowl. There are three aspects of the Affordable Health Care Act that make it easy for scams to thrive, said a press release from Pinellas County Communications. First, the law affects nearly every American in some way, so consumers across the U.S. are vulnerable to getting scammed. Second, the act is not standardized nationwide, allowing each state to administer the law in different ways. Third, the complexity of the law leaves consumers confused. The countys Department of Justice and Consumer Services offers some tips to help protect against becoming a victim. Most important is to protect personal information. Individuals should never give out information such as credit card, bank account or social security numbers over the phone, by email or in person outside an official government office, especially when unsolicited. When meeting in person, ask to see the representatives credentials. Government agencies usually communicate via the United States Postal Service and their employees would never ask for personal information over the phone or by email. Be aware that scammers can spoof caller IDs and display fake names and phone numbers. Lastly, remember there is no rush to get signed up for health insurance right away. Anyone who phones or emails and pressures you into an immediate decision is likely a scammer. The best advice is to hang up the phone and dont answer the email. If you think youre a victim of a scam, call Justice and Consumer Services at 464-6200 or visit www.pinellascounty.org/consumer.

City calendar City calendarMixson named new deputy fire chiefLARGO Former Division Chief David Mixson was promoted to deputy fire chief of Largo Fire Rescue, Chief Shelby Willis announced Oct. 3. Mixsons new roles and responsibilities include administrative oversight of the department as well as assuming the role of emergency management coordinator for the city. Mixson has been with Largo Fire Rescue for almost 20 years. He began his career in January 1994 as a firefighter/paramedic. He was promoted to lieutenant in January 2003 then district chief in December 2006. In April 2009, Mixson was promoted to the rank of division chief and has served in both the operations and logistics divisions for the department. In addition, Mixson was a SWAT medic and was asked to lead the Pinellas County Hazmat Team as the teams commander from January 2007 through April 2011. Mixson has a bachelors degree in business administration from St. Leo University and is currently pursuing a masters of science in safety, security, and emergency management from Eastern Kentucky University. Chief Mixsons leadership and commitment to our city and our organization is without reproach, Willis stated in her citywide announcement. Willis served as deputy chief until she was named interim chief in April, after Mike Wallace retired from the post amidst an internal investigation into his leadership. Willis was named permanent fire chief last month and stated then her intentions to make successive promotions to fill her place. Deputy Fire Chief David Mixson Big Brothers Big Sisters calls all couples to actionLARGO To increase the number of mentors for young boys in Pinellas County, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas launched The Next BIG Thing on Oct. 1 the very first Big Couples campaign in its history. Statistically, one in five African-American boys in the county will graduate from high school this year. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas will run a 50-day campaign with the goal of recruiting 50 new Big Couples to remove 50 boys from the agencys waiting list. There currently are more than 200 children ready to be matched. As a Big Couple, you and your long-term significant other become adult mentors otherwise known as Bigs to a young boy waiting for someone to guide him down the path to success. The three of you can do things together or spend time with your Little individually, from simple activities like playing catch in the park to eating a hot dog at a Tampa Bay Rays game. Your presence has the power to enrich a childs life by exposing him to things he would otherwise never get to experience. There are 744 hours in the average month; it only takes four to eight hours to be a Big Couple. To get started, contact Big Brothers Big Sisters by calling 5188860 or visiting www.bbbspc.org. Volunteers then must pick one of three programs: C o m m u n i t y b a s e d : meeting with the child for four hours each month to spend quality time together in the community. S p o r t s B u d d i e s : an extension of Community Based, this program stems from building an instant friendship from the common interest of sports. S c h o o l b a s e d : meeting with the child on school grounds for one hour per week; your visit will typically range from playing on the playground to helping with academic work or simply talking about your day. You are not responsible for seeing the child when school is not in session. Volunteers then would meet with a degreed Match Manager for an interview and training session before meeting a new Little Brother. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides a system of ongoing evaluation and support, which is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that Littles will perform better in school and avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others. The organization has been in existence for more than 100 years at a national level, and more than 45 years locally.

NAVIGATOR, from page 1Afrom routine maintenance, such as ditch mowing schedules and preventative measures. Were being pulled more and more into these urgent emergency repairs. Theyre very time-consuming for in-house maintenance staff and often require long-term planning, Dicus said. Since 2008, urgent, unplanned repairs have cost the city $2 million. Those dont include capital projects that have been completed. Most recently, the Sunset Manor ditch rehabilitation project, part of the overall goal to retrofit the McKay Creek stormwater system, was completed this year. That particular ditch was both extremely difficult for our public works crews to maintain and in some cases, extremely dangerous to even access, said Sean VanDerGracht, the citys stormwater administrator. With working with our public works crews, our engineering division was able to turn it into what you see there today. If not addressed, localized flooding will turn into structure flooding that will cause widespread damage to city residences and businesses. On top of the age of the infrastructure, much of it never achieved what the system needs to be now. Many of state environmental regulations and development standards were not in place before the 1980s, VanDerGracht said. The majority of the city was already developed at that time, he explained. The infrastructure needs to be upgraded not only because its old, but because it was never designed to clean the stormwater of pollutants that can harm Gulf waters and ecosystem. Stormwater runoff is public enemy No. 1, VanDerGracht said. The reason the stormwater runoff can be so bad for the environment is unlike our sanitary sewer system, its not connected to any sort of treatment plant. The city plans to retrofit much of its stormwater system for water treatment as its first initiative in confronting the problem. On Jan. 1, the city completed its state-required total maximum daily living plan, which identifies which water bodies are exceeding pollution limits and how the city plans to clean the water that flows into it. Despite many of water quality improvements that the city as well as the county have implemented the past 10 years, the vast majority of the water bodies in Pinellas County are currently classified as impaired (meaning they are) not meeting one or more state water quality standards, Dicus said. The city is waiting for state approval of its prioritized list of water bodies that need to be addressed. The city also is looking at developing a comprehensive stormwater infrastructure maintenance rehabilitation program. To do this, it will need to completely assess the entire system to determine the condition of different components. Then we can start predicting where we need to invest in replacing infrastructure, Dicus said. This plan that we are proposing is to identify where are these areas, what will be the cost to rehab them, when do we want to rehab them, what will that mean to our fund. Finally, city staff will continue to look for opportunities to tackle multiple infrastructure improvements at one time. A local roadway and community street infrastructure project also provides an opportunity to retrofit some of the urban stormwater treatment practices weve been talking about, Dicus said. In the coming months as city staff seeks to upgrade the entire system, commissioners will be considering raising the stormwater fee charged to residents and businesses. City staff couldnt hazard a guess on the total cost of the rehabilitation, but Craig said, its going to take millions. Weve got a lot of work to do Craig said. The system is old, and its in terrible shape were seeing it every day. And we cant keep up with it. City commissioners will be updated on the progress of the plan at a later meeting.Photo courtesy of the CITY OF LARGOLargo public works employees clean out a catch basin, designed to catch organic and inorganic pollutants in the stormwater system. City staff emphasize that mechanisms like this arent doing enough to clean the stormwater before it goes into the Gulf. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Clearwaters Pier 60 walk-on rates double By BRIAN GOFFCLEARWATER For years it has cost 50 cents to walk out to the end of Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach. As of Oct. 1, that price has doubled to $1. Clearwater officials say the increase was long overdue. The rates havent changed in the 14 years I have been here, said Harbormaster Bill Morris. It has been something of a loss leader if you will, it was just something that we hadnt raised. Morris, who is also the director of Clearwaters Marine and Aviation Department, said costs dictated the increase. We just try to remain competitive with the market to be able to provide the revenue back to the city that we can, he said. We dont cover the cost of what it might take to rebuild that, but we do our best to remain competitive with the other piers up and down the coast. We have to keep prices such that people will use it. We watch what everybody elses rates are. Morris said he hasnt heard much feedback from residents about the fee increase. He said he expects that to change once the rates go into effect. I expect to get some complaints when it becomes a reality, he said. Some people have grumbled but until they have to reach into their pockets I dont anticipate hearing a whole lot. Who will likely complain the most? Morris said the casual visitor is likely to bear the brunt of the new rate. The local folks who go out there on a regular basis probably have a weekly or monthly pass, he said. However, somebody who has a number of out of town guests and wants to bring them for a walk on the pier will be hit for sure. They will complain then Im sure. On a bright, sunny afternoon recently a couple from Chicago was strolling on the beach, enjoying the first day of their vacation. Tim and Annie Wilson were on a five-day stay. It was Tims birthday and one of their plans was to take a walk on the pier. That is until they discovered it was going to cost them 50 cents to do so. The pier was definitely on our to-do list, said Annie Wilson. But now were not going; we dont have any change. Who carries money on them when they go for a walk on the beach? Tom Wilson wondered why there had to be a charge at all. In Chicago we have a pier and there is lots to do on it and it is free, he said. It would be nice if it were free here, too. When told about the pending increase to a dollar, Annie Wilson was quick to say what effect that would have on their plans. We wouldnt go out there at all in that case, she said. Not far away Karl Artt and Victoria Justin, visitors from Northern Ireland, had just come back from a short walk on the pier. They hadnt gone out far enough to have to pay and in fact were surprised when told they would have had to pay 50 cents to go all the way. They didnt seem to mind, even when told of the pending increase. We loved it out there, said Justin. We didnt go far enough to have to pay but we would if we come back again. A dollar would be OK, said Artt. Mind you it would be quite costly for someone coming here every day. The increase in rates was approved by the Clearwater City Commission, as does every financial increase over 10 percent. Morris said the ongoing maintenance of the pier has to be paid for somehow. Right now the pier is undergoing a midlife extension, he said. The entire railing all the way around the pier is being replaced. Photo by BRIAN GOFFTim and Annie Wilson of Chicago celebrate Tims birthday on the pier on Clearwater Beach.Right now it is pressure treated lumber which has deteriorated and it is being replaced with new plastic railings. Morris said the state-of-the-art in plastic lumber has matured and improved significantly in recent years, He says the railing replacement should be finished in two weeks in time for the Super Boat races. He said the replacement of the decking on the pier also was done with a hybrid form of lumber, which has lasted longer than wood ever did. Original lumber had to be replaced every five years or so, he said. Fifteen years ago we replaced the decking with this new composite and it has lasted this long and we feel it has another 15 years left in it. When it first went in it was brown, since then it has turned gray but that is the only change. It has paid for itself many times over. The new walk-on rate of 1 dollar went into effect on Oct. 1. The other rates remain unchanged. The daily fishing fee is $8 or $6.75 for seniors. The weekly rate is $30 or $25 for seniors and the annual pass is $250 or $200 for seniors. Those rates will remain the same at least for the year ahead.Elections Office offers sample ballots by emailLARGO Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced that voters now have the opportunity to receive sample ballots for countywide elections by email. House Bill 247, effective Oct. 1, provides that the statewide voter registration application include a space for an email address and the option for voters to request that their sample ballots be emailed to them. We are pleased to give voters a new option for receiving sample ballots, Clark said. Many people prefer electronic communication, and we welcome the technology to accommodate them. Voters who request sample ballots for countywide elections by email will no longer receive sample ballots for countywide elections by regular mail.

The award is an expansion on an original grant to a coalition of supervisors of elections, which includes Pinellas County. The coalition, named Our Mission: Your Vote, originally included 13 counties, and this grant will help expand the project and bring 21 additional Florida counties into its consortium as part of the Electronic Absentee Systems for Elections grant funded by the Federal Voting Assistance Program. Using the system, voters can request, mark and track their absentee ballots electronically. The system is designed to provide greater online access, automate absentee requests and expedite ballot delivery, making the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act voting process more seamless. Speeding up ballot delivery is expected to increase ballot request and return rates of military and overseas voters. Providing ballot access to our men and women serving our country overseas is of the utmost importance, Clark said. We will continue to do everything we can to protect their right to vote, just as they are defending our freedoms. We are excited that this project was funded once again to provide this electronic system for ballot delivery to our voters who are stationed overseas. Original members of the Our Mission: Your Vote coalition include Baker, Bay, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Escambia, Leon, Nassau, Okaloosa, Pinellas, Putnam, Sarasota, and Wakulla counties. Joining the coalition include Alachua, Charlotte, Citrus, Collier, Hernando, Highlands, Indian River, Jackson, Levy, Madison, Manatee, Martin, Miami-Dade, Okeechobee, Osceola, St. Johns, Santa Rosa, Sumter, Suwannee, Walton and Washington counties.

At its monthly meeting Sept. 27, the board, which includes elected officials from Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas and Sarasota counties unanimously endorsed a resolution to support the new transit improvement plan for Pinellas County. Greenlight Pinellas is a multimodal comprehensive transit improvement plan incorporating feedback from the public, the business community, planning agencies, the Pinellas Alternatives Analysis and the Community Bus Plan. The goal of the plan is to help the county develop the most efficient and economically viable transit service possible. It features a significantly expanded bus network with buses running more frequently and throughout greater portions of the day. The countywide bus service improvements will then build a foundation for a future light rail line connecting St. Petersburg, the Gateway/Carillon area and Clearwater.

Call Betty at 360-3971.Hurricane season not over yet By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Emergency Management recently reminded residents to stay prepared for possible tropical weather in October, which is the third busiest month for hurricane development. More than 16 percent of all storms historically have formed in October. When cold fronts blow out of Canada, bringing cooler air to our neighbors up north, the winds they generate tend to pick gulf storms up and push them from west to east making Floridas West Coast particularly vulnerable, Tom Iovino, public information specialist with Pinellas County Communications, said in a press release. The last time Pinellas County took a direct hit from a hurricane was Oct. 25, 1921. On Oct. 7, 1996, Tropical Storm Josephine caused flooding along the countys beaches and swept a tremendous amount of sand onto Gulf Boulevard, Iovino said. Hurricane Wilma, which made landfall on Oct. 24, 2005, broke several records, eventually becoming the most intense hurricane recorded in the Atlantic Basin. Iovino said that since October storms form much closer to the county, the warning time could be considerably shorter than storms forming in August and September. Residents should visit www.pinellascounty.org/emegency to verify evacuation levels and get information on disaster planning. Renowned hurricane forecasters Phillip Klotzbach and William Gray, professors with the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University, released their forecast for activity in October and November. The forecast, released Oct. 1, calls for above-average hurricane activity in the Caribbean basin. However, in a report issued Sept. 27, the two Colorado professors agreed that the season might not be as active as earlier predictions indicated. The most recent seasonal forecast called for an above-normal season, the Colorado experts said. Obviously, at this point, we realize that the seasonal forecast was a significant over-prediction, and we therefore do not expect to see the levels of activity this year that we earlier anticipated. But, it only takes one thats the anthem emergency management personnel and meteorologists sing every hurricane season, which runs June 1 through Nov. 30 in the Atlantic basin. Residents who live in areas vulnerable to hurricanes should be ready to put emergency plans into action if necessary. The Atlantic basin includes the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Season summaryIt was Sept. 11 before the first hurricane of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season formed. Three days later, a second hurricane formed about 195 miles east of Tuxpan, Mexico. According to NHC records, 2013 is the first year since 2002 that no hurricane formed through the month of August. Records show that on average at least one hurricane forms in a season by Aug. 10. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations climate experts have predicted that as many as six to nine hurricanes could form during the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. As of Oct. 6, 11 named storms have formed. NOAAs forecast calls for 13 to 19. No major hurricanes have formed. Pinellas County is offering information on hurricanes and ways to prepare through its eSeries: Prepare to Survive. The 15-minute programs are available at www.youtube.com/PCCTV1 and www.pinellascounty.org/eseries. Additional information is available at www.tbn weekly.com/special_section/hurricane_guide. Community calendarObedience classes offeredLARGO A new series of dog obedience classes offered by Pinellas County Animal Services starts Oct. 16 with subsequent sessions offered beginning Jan. 8, Feb. 26 and March 19.

Tuition is $100 for all six weeks. Interested parties must submit their class registration and tuition payment in advance of the start of each class session. Registration forms are available at the Pinellas County Animal Services facility or online at www.pinellas county.org/animalservices. Pinellas County Animal Services is at 12450 Ulmerton Road in Largo.

PETERSBURG USF St. Petersburg is developing the nations first graduate certificate in food writing and photography and has gathered an advisory board to help guide the program. Janet Keeler, the award-winning food editor of the Tampa Bay Times and an adjunct journalism professor at USFSP, is coordinating the program, which is overseen by Deni Elliott, Ph.D., chair of the Journalism and Media Studies. The program, which will offer its first classes next fall, is designed for graduate students, mid-career culinary professionals and professional communicators. The 15-credit program can be completed fully online or through a combination of traditional short and semester-long classes. Public interest in all things food has exploded in recent years, whether on television, in print or on the Web, said Elliott in a press release. Elliott is the USF St. Petersburg Eleanor Poynter Jamison chair in media ethics and press policy. Food is more than sustenance. It defines cultures, provides jobs, and brings people together. We are excited to be able to offer cutting-edge knowledge and skills to harness the passion so many have for food. The program includes four required courses in multimedia reporting, digital law and ethics, special topics in food communication, and a final threecredit project. The remaining class can be earned by taking elective courses in literary food writing, science food writing, blogging/entrepreneurship, Web publishing, social media, photojournalism, or visual communications design and theory. Up to 12 credit hours from the certificate program can be applied to a masters degree in journalism and media studies or digital journalism and design. Instructors will be seasoned reporters, worldrenowned ethicists and experienced Web developers. The program is aimed at graduate degree and non-degree seeking students interested in improving their food communication skills, including food service professionals using digital media to promote their business and engage with customers, and writers and photographers looking to build an audience for online ventures and traditional media. The advisory board includes media and food industry representatives such as Kay Clark, publisher, Edible Tampa Bay; Gail Eggeman, manager, St. Petersburg Saturday Morning Market; Jeff Hearn, founder/host, Eat Cheap, Drink Rich; William T. Jackson, Ph.D., USF St. Petersburg entrepreneurship program director; Scott Keeler, photographer, Tampa Bay Times; Cathie Koch, vice president of corporate communications, Bloomin Brands Inc.; Steven Kovich, photographer; Isabel Laessig, founder and editor, Family Foodie; Pamela Lunn, owner, Dancing Goat; David Snyder, First Amendment lawyer; Terry Tomalin, outdoors editor, Tampa Bay Times; and Brian West, media and community relations manager, Publix.

To the kids, its like theyre playing a computer game, even though they are actually taking a placement test for reading and math. Belcher Elementary in Clearwater is one of 22 elementary and six middle schools in Pinellas County that were selected for the inaugural year of the Promise Time program with the i-Ready curriculum. These all are Title I schools, which means they have a high amount of students from low-income households. Promise Time is a partnership between the Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County and Pinellas County Schools. PCS Superintendent Dr. Michael A. Grego approached JWB last spring to design an out-of-school time program to help raise reading and math scores, and out of that, Promise Time emerged. What makes Promise Time different than past programs is that now instead of having a totally separate school day and after school program, they are connected through a facilitator position. Theyre a person who during the school day is an employee during Pinellas County Schools and after school they shift to being an employee of the after school provider, whether thats the city or the YMCA, said Matt Spence, early learning project manager for JWB. Research says is really important is connecting the academic portions of the school day with whatever the academic portions of the after school program are. The facilitator can talk to the students teachers to find out if they want their student to work on anything in particular during Promise Time, and both teachers, parents and the after-school program provider can come to the facilitator with any questions, concerns or ideas, and the facilitator can organize it all and help make a seamless connection all around. The school system was able to fund 50 hours over the course of the school year for the facilitator position, and JWB is able to pick up funds for additional hours. The participating schools are divided into moderate or intensive intervention schools. For the moderate ones, JWB added funds to total 130 hours for the position, or an average of five hours a week. In the intensive intervention schools, JWB added funds for the facilitator position to total 360 hours of facilitator times, or about 10 hours each week. So that really gives the opportunity for that facilitator to individualize instruction, Spence said. To make sure students are being met on level, where they are, and with the support that they need from where they are and not where they should be. If a student is reading at a second-grade level, handing them a fourth-grade level text doesnt help. Twenty schools were deemed a moderate intervention level. Eight others are intensive intervention. For about the first two weeks of school, all of the participating students took a placement test innovatively designed to feel more like a computer game than a test that then gives instant feedback to the facilitator and tutors exactly where the students are in their studies. The program is also adaptive, Spence said. If a student gets a question right, the next one will be a little harder. If they get one wrong, the next will be a little easier, so it can find exactly what they do and do not know. But along with all of the reports the teachers get is one that shows if a student is spending less than 11 seconds on each question. If that is the case, then the teacher will know that he or she is just clicking through without trying, so the teacher can instruct the student to go back and spend more time actually working through the questions. After the initial diagnostic is complete, the program itself divides the students into groups by level. For instance, Spence said, if five students are struggling with vocabulary, they will be grouped together to work on that skill, and the program automatically provides the teacher with curriculum and lesson plans that they can use or modify that will directly address these specific areas the students need to work on. Kristen Cross, age 8, of Largo is a third-grade student at Belcher Elementary. While on one of the last days of the diagnostic placement testing, she said she enjoyed the program and likes that she gets to learn new things, like math and reading. It helps you with things that youre stuck on, Cross added. Jacobi Jackson, also an 8-year-old third-grader from Belcher Elementary who lives in Largo, hardly even noticed he was taking a placement test. His eyes kept drifting back to the monitor, wanting to keep going on it. He did stop long enough, however, to explain what he likes about the i-Ready program. It lets you play games, Jackson said. Parts of the actual test and later, the learning tools feel like games, even though the kids are acPhoto by ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLAndres Cortes, left, and Jacobi Jackson, both of Largo focus intently on the i-Ready program.

Though the program does actually reward kids progress with actual games. If they answer enough questions correctly, a game will pop up that is purely a reward, though the game will be activated only for a limited amount of time, then its back to learning again. Raylee Fleisch of Clearwater is the library, media and technology specialist at Belcher Elementary and also the facilitator for Promise Time. Belcher Elementary was the pilot program for a version of the connected school day/after-school program last year, but that was before the i-Ready program. Back then, they had to wait for their fall FAIR testing to be completed so they would have an idea of what they need to work on. However with this new program, even though the students werent even done with their diagnostic test, Fleisch had already been Briefs See PROMISE TIME, page 18A Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

During the annual enrollment period, from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to make changes to their Medicare Prescription Drug or Medicare Advantage plans. SHINE encourages beneficiaries to review their benefits each year for a variety of reasons. Individuals often experience subtle changes in their health over the course of the year, and these changes may alter the kind of care they need. This could directly affect their need for more or less health insurance, the types of prescription drugs they require or their access to particular doctors or pharmacies. Health changes also can increase costs, which can be particularly critical for Medicare beneficiaries on fixed incomes. SHINE volunteer counselors through the Area Agency on Aging, Pasco/Pinellas, provide free, unbiased one-on-one insurance counseling and information on Medicare options and prescription drug assistance for elders, their families and caregivers. Beneficiaries are encouraged to act quickly to assure a smooth transition into the 2014 benefit year. To receive help from SHINE to review and enroll in a plan, individuals may visit designated SHINE counseling sites, attend enrollment events in their local communities, or contact trained SHINE volunteer counselors at 1-800-963-5337.

Hospital joins clinical research trialCLEARWATER Morton Plant Hospital recently enrolled a patient in a clinical research trial for Absorb, a small mesh tube that is designed to open a clogged heart vessel, restore blood flow to the heart, and then dissolve into the blood vessel over time. The clinical research trial is called ABSORB III, which is enrolling patients in the United States. Absorb, manufactured by the global health care company, Abbott, is an investigational bioresorbable vascular scaffold that is the focus of ABSORB III, the first U.S. clinical trial to evaluate the potential benefits of Absorb in comparison to a medicated metallic heart stent, also called a drug eluting stent, in patients with coronary artery disease, a form of heart disease. Morton Plant Hospital is among the few hospitals in the Tampa Bay area to be selected to participate in the ABSORB III trial, which is a double-blind research study which means neither the patient nor the doctor know if the research scaffold will be used. Normally, we have relied on metallic and drug eluting stents, to keep blocked arteries clear, which allowed many patients to avoid open heart surgery, but required patients to have a permanent metallic implant, said Patrick Cambier, M.D., in a press release. Cambier is a Morton Plant Mease interventional cardiologist and co-principal investigator. The hope of this research is that the Absorb device will allow us to use a similar procedure, but implant a device that will eventually dissolve after it has opened the artery and restored blood flow to the heart. Unlike a metallic stent that remains permanently in the body, Absorb is referred to as a scaffold to indicate that it is a temporary structure. The Absorb BVS is made of a naturally dissolvable material that is commonly used in medical implants such as dissolving sutures. Research indicates that the support provided to the coronary artery by a metal stent may only be necessary for a few months after the stent is implanted, said Bernardo Stein, M.D., Morton Plant Mease interventional cardiologist and co-principal investigator. In theory, the most significant potential advantage to an absorbable scaffold is that it not only provides the necessary support when needed after restoring blood flow, similar to a metallic stent, but also once the scaffolding is absorbed by the body, motion could return to the artery. Once the scaffold is implanted, it releases a medication intended to prevent restenosis (narrowing of the artery). The procedure is similar to angioplasty or stent placement. Absorb is placed into the artery on a balloon at the end of a thin, flexible tube. Absorb is expanded by inflating the balloon, pushing the plaque against the artery wall to enable greater blood flow. The balloon is removed, leaving Absorb to slowly release medication to the diseased area. With blood flow restored, Absorb begins dissolving. Coronary artery disease, a narrowing of one or more arteries that supply blood to the heart, is a leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Patients with CAD can experience symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath when the demand for blood to the heart is more than the hearts ability to supply blood due to blockages in the vessels that supply blood to the heart. These blockages are caused by the buildup of fat and cholesterol inside the vessel.Hancock joins dental practiceST. PETERSBURG Dr. Wade W. Hancock recently joined Dr. Paul A. Mevolis dental practice in St. Petersburg. Hancock is a graduate of the University of Florida College of Dentistry. He was handpicked because of his dedication to serve the community, offering all phases of exceptional dentistry with an individual approach. He has been an active member of various community service, church, and dental mission trip organizations. Daire receives community awardST. PETERSBURG Barbara Daire, president and CEO of Suncoast Center Inc. of St. Petersburg, recently was named the recipient of the 2013 Lois Potter Hill Community Health Partnership Award presented by the Florida Association of Community Health Centers. During Daires tenure as CEO and president of Suncoast Center Inc., the agency has grown to serving more than 25,000 children, adults, families and seniors in Pinellas, Pasco, Manatee, and Hillsborough counties. For the past 11 years Daire has been a steadfast collaborator and partner in assuring access to behavioral health services for the patients of Community Health Centers of Pinellas, embodying the mission to ensure access to everyone regardless of ability to pay. This is a unique partnership in which both are willing to take financial risks that ultimately benefit the individual and the community. Pat Mabe of Community Health Centers of Pinellas nominated Daire. The Lois Potter Hill Community Health Partnership Award recognizes individuals, civic, or religious groups who have advanced health services to the underserved by financial, material, or voluntary services to a community or migrant health organization and created public awareness and support for private participation in community health care. Suncoast Centers mission is to strengthen, protect and restore lives for a healthy community. The centers programs and services include Pinellas Countys Childrens Advocacy Center, Pinellas Countys only accredited Rape Crisis Center, and the Child Protection Team. Florida Hospital donates school suppliesTARPON SPRINGS As part of a yearly promise to assist the needs of Tarpon Springs Elementary Schools more than 500 elementary students, Florida Hospital North Pinellas employees recently donated a truckload of backpacks and school supplies for the schools teachers and students. The hospital delivered the supplies on Aug. 16, prior to the start of the new school year this week. We are thrilled to be able to help provide much needed school supplies and backpacks to our local school, said Vernon Elarbee in a press release. Elarbee is the hospitals human resources director, and coordinator of the project. Every school year our employees are very generous and donate to our School Supplies Fund so that our communitys kids can benefit. We made a promise to the school a long time ago that we will continue this effort every year Im hoping we can keep increasing our donations year by year. Florida Hospital North Pinellas, in Tarpon Springs, is a member of The Florida Hospital network of the Adventist Health System. Breath of Life center offers nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesiaLARGO Breath of Life Womens Health & Birth Center is the first in the Tampa Bay area to begin offering nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia for laboring women with their Nitronox System. This system delivers a fixed mixture of 50 percent oxygen and 50 percent nitrous oxide (better known as laughing gas) that is safe, effective, simple and popular with many laboring women. It is a primary aim of Breath of Life to allow clients free choice and autonomy in selecting the best form of labor pain management for each particular situation, said Chris Hilderbrandt, CNM, in a press release. Hilderbrandt is director of the center. In the interest of allowing clients this process of choice, we now offer nitrous oxide analgesia which has been, and is currently, used extensively worldwide as a primary form of analgesia for labor and birth.DOH-Pinellas offers no-cost mammogramsOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and many facilities are offering mammograms at reduced rates to encourage women to be screened. Should a reduced-rate mammogram detect an issue in a woman who is uninsured, there may not be low-cost alternatives for further testing or treatment. At the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, the Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program and Mammography Voucher Program offer these screenings all year at no cost to eligible low-income women who are uninsured and between the ages of 40 and 64. If a woman has her screening through these programs and a problem is found, she can get further testing at no cost and can receive treatment if she is diagnosed with breast cancer. DOH-Pinellas provides initial appointments at several locations throughout the county. To see if you qualify, call the number that corresponds with your age. If 40 to 49 years old, call 820-4117; women 50 to 64 years old should call 824-6917. For information online, go to www.PinellasHealth.com and click on the Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program link. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the U.S., and the third leading cause of cancer deaths. When to start mammogram screenings, and how often to repeat them, is a decision for a woman and her doctor, based on her health history, her risk factors and the current recommendations of professional medical organizations.

She was put into foster care until she was old enough to get spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Now 5 months old, this photo was taken when he was just 6 weeks old and only four pounds. His human family Glenn, Renee and their son, Michael Cohen, all of Indian Rocks Beach wanted to always remember how small he was when he was a puppy, so they snapped this photo next to a beer can to use as size comparison. The Cohens got Baxter from a breeder in Tallahassee. Baxter loves to chase sticks and cuddle and is especially fond of belly rubs. He accompanies his human parents to work, so he gets plenty of playtime throughout the day and loves visiting with everyone. He is now learning basic tricks and commands, with Glenns favorite being high five. But the biggest reason his family thinks Baxter is so special is how lovable he is. He sleeps in his parents bed and has to always be leaning against them or resting his head on their pillow. Baxter also has a Siamese kitty sibling, Kasey. As our pet photo winner, Baxter wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park. Send your pet photos to Alexandra Lundahl at alundahl@ TBNweekly.com.

Missing pets are always heartbreaking, but a new modern twist has made the lost dog or cat sign even more disturbing. Pet flipping is becoming a common occurrence, of which all pet owners need to be cautious. Pet flipping occurs when unscrupulous people find a lost pet, and instead of looking for the rightful owner, they will attempt to sell it on Craigslist or similar websites. Craigslist is an online, and free local classified ad website. Some villains have gone so far as to steal a pet from someones back yard to try and sell it on Craigslist. While this may seem farfetched, more and more stories are coming out about this practice. In Seminole, Danielle, a veterinary nurse, had her Boston terrier, Misfit, run out the front door. Within 45 minutes, it was listed for sale on Craigslist. As is usually the case, the sellers argued that it was not her dog and that they were rescuing it. This is where the great difficulty comes. Often times the police, or even the court system, must become involved to prove who the rightful owner is. Many people rely on a collar, a tag and their dog or cats appearance for identification. Collar and tags can be easily removed, and many times purebred pets can be very similar in appearance. Even if you think youve found your lost pet on Craigslist, proving it can be much more difficult. Luckily, protection is readily available in the form of a microchip. Microchips, which are the size of a grain of rice and implanted beneath the skin, are the best way to have permanent, unalterable identification of your pet. When the microchips are appropriately registered to the owner, the proof is certain. Registering the microchip, which pairs the owners information with the individual microchip number, is vital. A pet owner should always register their pets microchip with the database held by the individual microchips manufacturer. An Avid microchip should be registered in the Avid database, while an AKC microchip should be registered in the AKC database. In the United States, there is no centralized database registry, so registering with the manufacturer is the best way to ensure your name and information is attached with your pet. Lastly, if you buy (or adopt for a fee) from a stranger online or on Craigslist, please immediately take the pet to an animal hospital, animal shelter or animal services to be scanned. You do not want to be an accomplice in the theft of someones four-legged family member. Microchips have always been important in hurricane-prone Florida. We all remember the horrible stories of pets lost forever after Katrina and Charlie. Now with Pet Flipping, danger can occur on a clear day in your own backyard. Get your pets microchipped, and register the microchips, as soon as possible.Michael Rumore practices at Lake Seminole Animal Hospital in Seminole, and at online at www .LakeSeminoleAH.com.

Below, Wierenga blesses Linda Novacks dog Holly.Blessing of PetstSooner or later in your genealogical research you will probably develop an interest in maps. It seems a natural progression to move from an interest in recording dates and places of birth, marriage, and death, to having an active interest in exactly where those places are located on the ground and perhaps even what they look like today. Maps can go a long way in satisfying that interest. The variety of maps available also contributes to that interest. We have all seen the familiar road map, of course, but the list goes on to plat maps, insurance maps, migration maps, battle maps, topographical maps, railroad maps, and more. Each of them has been constructed to serve a definite purpose, and as a byproduct, each serves to give us genealogists information about our ancestors and their lives that is often available nowhere else. Some maps, such as plat maps, give use information specific to our ancestors. Those maps will show outlines of actual plots of land owned by individuals. We can see where they lived in relation to neighboring towns, as well as places of worship, burial, and education. We can see who their neighbors were neighbors who possibly became extended families through marriage, or life-long enemies because of property disputes. Other maps are of a more general nature, and rather than tell us about our specific ancestors, instead help up gain an understanding of their lives in a general sense. Migration maps are a good example of that. They will show routes that families followed as they moved west into the frontier. If an ancestor was located at one place for one census and then showed up in another place on the following census, knowledge of migration routes may give us clues about how that distance was covered and what life was like during the trip. As realization of the value of map research increases, we see an accompanying increase in access to maps on the Internet. Ancestry.com has a large collection of county land ownership maps covering the period 1860 to 1918, and early land ownership and township plats from 1785 to 1898. These are only a few of the many map collections on that website. The site FamilySearch.org also has many map collections in its holdings, as does the Library of Congress site at LOC.gov. Libraries are a good source of maps also. The Genealogy Center at the Largo Public Library has an extensive map collection. It is located in four locations in the Genealogy Center. The most obvious place is the Atlas stand located near the computers. Here you will find historic atlases such as for Warren County, N.Y. in 1874, Niagara County, N.Y. in 1875, and Green County, Ohio in 1896. A modern day atlas of Great Britain is also found there. One of the more valuable collections in the Atlas stand is that of Civil War maps. Another location for maps is the map case located in the print collection. Here you will find individually protected maps covering many places the world over. On top of the case is an index to help locate the specific drawer for the map you are interested in. The third location is on the bookshelves for call numbers ranging from 311 to 314. There you will find mostly gazetteers and items like the Atlas of U.S. townships in 1991, dictionaries of English and French place names, and an Atlas of historic Poland. The fourth and final location for maps is two drawers of vertical files at the opposite end of the Genealogy Center from the map case. The first drawer contains historical maps kept in binders arranged alphabetically first by states of the U.S. and then foreign countries. The second drawer contains road maps, again arranged alphabetically by state and then by foreign country. Although in genealogy we find ourselves mostly involved in searching through historical maps, modern-day maps also can be useful. In fact, to beneficially use old maps, we often have to start with modern versions and work backward. In this approach, the modern map tools found online at Google and other websites are extremely valuable. Some unique websites actually help us visualize how county and state boundaries have changed over time, especially helpful if you are trying to track down a courthouse that may house your ancestors vital records. Two sites that do this especially well are www.mapofus.org and publications.newberry.org/ahcbp. The websites I have mentioned in this column are, of course, only a few examples of the many sites available today. If you are interested, a simple Internet search will reveal many, many more. If you are at a place in your research where maps can be of value, you might find classes offered by Pinellas Genealogy Society to be helpful. Since there are so many different types of maps to make use of, the topic is divided up between two classes, free and open to the public. Keep an eye on the class schedule at the PGS website www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~flpgs/index.htm to see when they will be offered. The class list is updated frequently, so keep checking back if you at first dont see it on the schedule.Peter Summers is an amateur genealogist who has been working on his family history since 1972.

Viewpoints 15A Leader, October 10, 2013When you write a column, you hear from people who think they have a clever magic-wand solution to intractable political issues. Washington has run up $17 trillion of debt? Pass term limits. Throw the bums out. Take away their pensions. Sure, these ideas sound as if they might help, and it must feel good to propose something, but they ignore the entrenched forces that created these morasses in the first place. In a swamp that requires hard-nosed solutions, these folks instead have faith in what is known in political parlance as shiny objects. The shiny-object-mongers have taken over the House GOP caucus. They think that gimmicks can overcome basic math and that with the right tactic, they can win a political battle without controlling either the White House or the Senate. They repeatedly have tried to defund Obamacare; they repeatedly havent had the votes in the Senate. Then they added defunding Obamacare to a bill to keep the government running; they still didnt have the votes in the Senate. Then they stuck a one-year delay of Obamacares individual mandate on the spending continuing resolution. Guess what. They didnt have the votes in the Senate. These antics did win House Republicans a government shutdown. Too bad; the Republican shutdown is what President Barack Obama and Democratic leaders wanted all along. GOP dysfunction is their shiny object that distracts voters from their inability to fix the U.S. economy. Now, for the GOP House, its all about face saving and stunts. House Speaker John Boehner keeps tossing out piecemeal funding bills to garner headlines, for example, about Democrats rejecting funding for veterans. Some GOP solons are urging party leaders to hang on for a face-saving win. Get Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to agree on a spending bill that includes a provision to delay the individual mandate or Obamacares ill-conceived medical device tax. There are two problems with that approach. First, though Democrats should be interested in compromise, theyre not. For years, the president has said that in a divided government, no one gets 100 percent of what they want, Boehner complained in USA Today. But when will his words match his actions? The answer: not when hes getting what he wants. But also, delaying the worst parts of Obamacare only helps Obamacare. Thats why the president delayed the employer mandate and other provisions in his signature legislation. Republicans shouldnt help the Affordable Care Act by kicking its shortcomings down the road. Theres no covering up the fact that the tea party already has lost. When solid conservatives such as Rep. Devin Nunes, RCalif., say the shutdown is suicidal he called the shutdown crowd lemmings with suicide vests its over. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., warned that the shutdown would lead GOP acolytes into a box canyon. Republicans know what happened and who led them into a trap. Savvy Republicans know that the best way to defeat the Affordable Care Act is to leave it alone and let it fall from its own weight. Smart partisans know when to pick their battles.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@sfchronicle.com.I have an elbow problem. And it has nothing to do with drinking. For some reason, my left arm stopped working. Until I met with my doctor, I wasnt sure if I needed to take pills or spray it with WD-40. I know what you are thinking: Germonds writing about one of his silly maladies again. Why doesnt he write about somebody elses serious health problems? Point taken. How about Sen. Ted Cruz. What type of affliction would cause anybody to blabber for more than 21 straight hours? Id rather listen to the Turtleman on Animal Planet all day or one of the snarling critters he traps in somebodys barn. Hope I never run into Sen. Cruz in a bar. Hes not the kind of person Id care to bend an elbow with. Especially not my aching left elbow. Funny what goes through your mind when an extremity fails to function for a few days. Made me appreciate even more the challenges people face coping with the loss of a limb. For two days, I didnt floss with my left hand because I couldnt bend my elbow. So I bought a package of disposable miniature dental floss holders. After a 15-minute odyssey using my right hand to control the device, I was struggling to yank the string out of my mouth. The damn package didnt come with a tutorial. Coincidentally, I had a dental appointment a few days later, and I asked my hygienist for specific advice. Just do the best you can, she said. She gave me high marks for at least trying to fight the good fight against gum disease, saying shes heard it all when it comes to people not flossing, such as a patients excuse that she didnt bring floss with her when she flew to Atlanta. They dont have dental floss in Atlanta? the hygienist said.And, as far as I know, its still legal to put dental floss in your suitcase, although the airlines might charge you for flossing on the plane. Not sure how I suddenly came down with a case of tendonitis, arthritis or whatever 18letter medical term describes my condition, but I suspect it was caused by the cumulative effect of years of brandishing a racquetball racket and pounding computer keyboards. Participating in keg throwing at the Oktoberfest at Indian Rocks Beach a few years ago probably wasnt a good idea, either. Wont be doing it this year. Goliath, I aint. I also vow to refrain from pounding my fist on my furniture and speaking in the pejorative about long-winded politicians in D.C. For a couple of days, since I control my electronic mouse with my right hand, I was able to read email and perform some computer tasks with one notable exception. Typing with one hand leaves a lot to be desired. So I apologize to my readers who received some rather terse replies to their emails last week, such as yes and no. Finally, after receiving some pills from my doctor and icing down my elbow for 21 straight hours, the pain subsided. Im also studying ergonomics, which is kind of vague on whether keg throwing is a risk factor for muscular-skeletal disorders. Though Im feeling better, all the antics of our elected senators and representatives in Washington continue to leave a bad taste in my mouth. Yet another reason to floss. Try spearmint. You dont have to go to Atlanta to find it.Tom Germond is executive editor of Tampa Bay Newspapers. Send him an email at tger mond@TBNweekly.com.Im starting this column on Oct. 1, the first day of the federal government shutdown. So by the time the column appears, Oct. 10, the impasse in Washington may have been patched up. Also, the thoughts Im about to write may have even less validity than they do as I write them today. But Im still going to record whats on my mind at this juncture. FIREARM PURCHASE. I dont own a gun, and never have. I havent harbored strong feelings on either side of the gun ownership debate, because I know too many gun and anti-gun advocates who are equally intelligent and trustworthy. But today I feel myself tilting toward buying a handgun, learning how to use it, and keeping it handy in my home and as I go about my outside errands. My feelings stem from a growing and, I hope, unjustified suspicion that the day may come when huge numbers of Americans, of all persuasions, take to the streets in search of someone (and maybe anyone) to shoot. They would shoot out of rage, out of fear, or just out of the hope that the shootings would somehow mow down some of the scoundrels who have brought this proud nation to its knees, or close to it. If or when such anarchy arrives, I think Ill want to have a firearm close at hand to defend myself against whoever breaks down my door. One handgun, or even several, probably wont be enough to turn back the enraged, bloodthirsty marauders who will fill our streets. But at least Ill have the short-lived satisfaction that I went down fighting, instead of passively awaiting my fate. This morning, within hours of the shutdowns beginnings, angry veterans broke open the fences that prevented them from visiting a WWII memorial site in Washington. Could this be a harbinger of what may happen on a grander scale if our alleged leaders in Washington dont soon stop the national disintegration that is taking place? I hope not, because violence has seldom been a solution to any major problem. A final argument for my buying a firearm is this admittedly superficial reason: If most of my friends and neighbors are packing heat, why shouldnt I? MOVING TO NEW ZEALAND. As much as I love my country, I cant help asking myself, at times, where on earth I could go that would be a refuge from the turmoil that keeps spilling out of Wolf Blitzers yap every time I switch on CNN. Ive heard that Fiji and Bora Bora, in the South Pacific, are idyllic spots. Someone once told me that Sweden is a lovely place to live if you like blonde women and dont mind the cold. Costa Rica has attracted many American retirees in recent years. The nation that sticks in my mind, however, is New Zealand. Im not sure why, unless its the location of the place, far away from much of civilizations troubles. The flaw in all of those getaway fantasies, of course, is that theres nowhere on earth in 2013 where you completely escape from todays looming threats. Over the past 50 years, or less, the finances and economics of the 194 nations of the globe have become more closely tied up with each other. To a frightening degree, we are all co-dependent for food, energy sources, scarce metals for computer products, military support, consumer spending and other important things. We are in the grip of globalism, and now theres no safe place to run to. THE SAVIOR ON A WHITE HORSE. In the history of nations, governments have occasionally fallen into such confusion and disrepair that the panic-stricken citizenry has cried out for salvation from any direction. Such times are tailor-made for someone on a white horse who promises to ride to the rescue and set things straight, even at the risk of eventually making things worse. Napoleon Bonaparte comes to mind, as does Adolph Hitler. They saved the day, but led their countrymen down the road to ruin. In the 1950s Sen. Joseph McCarthys anti-communist crusade caused millions of frightened Americans to cry out, Save us, Joe! I dont think the USA is ripe today for a white-horse savior, but that could quickly change. Later this month, if our geniuses in Washington manage to default on paying the bills the government owes, it could trigger the collapse of our economic system and that of many other nations. If that should happen, neither a handgun nor a plane ticket to New Zealand will save any of us. A centuries-old Chinese curse says, May you live in interesting times. Lets hope we soon see the arrival of worldwide boredom.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

But it appears that reforms approved last year by Congress may make things much worse, in unexpected and unintended ways. To avoid disrupting lives, businesses, markets and government, Congress could and should have suspended the floodinsurance rate hikes.Miami Herald, Oct. 3Texting and driving ban not tough enoughIt took a frustrating five years, but, finally, texting while driving is officially banned in the Sunshine State. The ban, along with several other new laws, went on the books Tuesday, Oct. 1 and while critics say it is too weak to become an effective publicsafety tool, its supporters say that at least it is a good start. Maybe so, but well only know how good this new ban is after its been enforced for a while. The major weakness is that the Legislature made texting while driving a secondary offense, meaning texting drivers can only be ticketed if they are pulled over for another traffic violation.The Tallahassee DemocratOur opinion: This is greatness?Its time to assign some blame in this government shutdown mess. So, lets place it squarely where it belongs: on everybody. This is not a disagreement about government funding, or even about the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. No, this is a battle that has been brewing for years, with our nations capital slowly breaking into factions that each seem to have only one goal wiping out the opposition.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission suggests when removing crab claws follow all protective regulations for stone crab harvest. To be harvested, stone crab claws must be at least 23/4 inches in length when measured from the elbow to the tip of the lower immovable portion of the claw. To see how to properly remove the claw, view a video at youtu.be/YTgXTS8gLjU.Gulf red snapper season has begunThe recreational harvest of red snapper opened Oct. 1 in state and federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In state waters, which are from shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf, the season will remain open through Oct. 21, closing on Oct. 22. In federal waters, which are from 9 nautical miles out to 200 nautical miles, the season will remain open through Oct. 14, closing on Oct. 15. These supplemental recreational red snapper seasons are for 2013 only. The minimum size limit in state and federal waters is 16 inches, and the daily bag limit is two per harvester, per day. There is a zero daily bag and possession limit for captain and crew on for-hire vessels. Anglers are required to use circle hooks and use devices to take hooks out when fishing for any reef species, including red snapper, in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters. The requirement to use venting tools in federal waters was removed on Sept. 3. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will consider adopting similar changes at a future meeting. The intent of these rules is to help conserve fishery resources by increasing the chances for a fish to survive after being caught and released.

Leader, October 10, 2013 Robert Bob Lee TROUTRobert Bob Lee Trout, age 92, passed away September 26, 2013, in SedroWoolley, Washington, of a lung infection. He was born to Helen and Howard Trout on October 18, 1920, in Pontiac, Michigan. Bob moved to Marion, Indiana in 1960 and worked for General Motors until he retired in 1976 after 34 years of service. Prior to working at General Motors, Bob served his country in the Navy as an Aviation Machinist Mate Second Class during WW II. Bobs time in the Navy gave him a love for world travel and other cultures. He loved sharing his many photo albums that journal his travels abroad. He was never short on stories and always eager to show the foreign currency collection he had accumulated. In addition to his love for travel, early in life Bob loved to ride his motorcycles, spend time hunting, and was a very accomplished golfer. For his retirement, he relocated to Largo, Florida. Bob was an avid fisherman and loved spending time on the Pier in Indian Rocks Beach or dancing at the supper club with his friends at Villa Capri. He is survived by his two sons, Lewis Robert Trout and his wife, Susan, and Kevin Bex Trout and his wife, Deborah; grandchildren, Adam Trout and his wife, Aimee, and Cody, Bex, David and Rachel Trout; and great-grandchildren, Savanah and Caleb. Bob lived a long, full life; he was a loving, supportive friend, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be missed and remembered fondly by the many people he touched. An Interment Ceremony will be held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, October 26, 2013, at Sylvan Abbey, Clearwater, Florida.

Capt. John Heidemann and I had arrived at the southern end of our study area, a quietly notorious bay for its general lack of dolphin sightings. What with the mackerel running offshore, there had been few dolphins in the estuary that day. But conditions also made it hard to spot them. Utterly blue skies blending with peat-colored seas from recent rains created an unexpected (and unwelcome) camouflage for gray animals. Nonetheless, we spotted a small group of dolphins at the far end of the notorious bay and headed over. Each of the five dolphins surfaced near the boat in turn. Two of them, Bet and her 2-year-old calf Ballou, surfaced a second time. Bet is particularly likely to greet the boat with a close encounter like this. I leaned over the gunwale eagerly to see how they were doing, especially Ballou, who had recovered from a particularly tough early childhood physically. But they did not surface again. In the marvelous cooperation among wild dolphins, the quintet somehow communicated to one another that the plan was to duck underwater and zip to a little bridge as fast as they could without breathing. We next spied them in distant tea-colored waters, their vaporous exhalations creating gossamer columns against the dark shadows of the little bridge. We needed to secure a few more photos for the federal record before they went under the little bridge and approached a little faster than normal. But as Capt. Heidemann skillfully applied what passes for boat brakes, Bet and Ballou launched over the water in the gesture dolphins use to ask to surf. Consequently, instead of stopping, Capt. Heidemann swung past at modest speed. Indeed, Bet and Ballou vanished into our wake. They mostly surfed underwater upside-down, their gleaming bellies skyward. This was no simple surfing moment, though: It was the first time I have seen little Ballou surf! Considering that some dolphins outside your doorstep have surfed by the tender age of two weeks, it was good to see this undaunted 2-year-old catch up on lost time. Her leap in todays picture was spectacularly reinforcing. Then, as a team, Bet and Ballou leapt out of the wake together and headed back to their schoolmates. As they left I thought, I have some bad news for you, Bet. The risks of living in nature have nothing to do with human superstitions. It was just coincidence that it was Friday the 13th, when that speeding boat zoomed over a local female bottlenose dolphin, Face, and her delightful yearling son, Facet, in a fatal encounter. In the two weeks since that grizzly incident, Bet and Ballou were the only new dolphins to appear in the study area. Bottlenose dolphins are very intelligent in general, and our local dolphins have shown some startlingly profound timing at times. YouTube videos of emotional reunions assure us that lions, gorillas and elephants have long-term memories of their friends, human and animal. I had to wonder if there was anything notable about the timing of Bet and Ballous return. There were lots of other good reasons to go into our database to see what kind of relationship Bet had with Face before she died. One when Bet was wounded by a shark in 2007, it was Face who accompanied her through the first tenuous days of her recovery. By doing so, Face may have put herself and yearling Babyface in danger. As such, Faces behavior raised questions about the basis of the famous dolphin reputation for empathy for the injured and dying. For a species to get credit for empathy, that empathy must start by appearing in individuals. Face may have been one of those exceptional individuals. Two Face had been very friendly with Bets mom Tanks. That meant that when Bet was a baby at her mothers side, she saw Face often. After Tanks passed on in 2011, Bet and Face quadrupled their time together. Three in 2012, Bets calf Ballou was struck by a singular body condition that made her very sick for many months. When she was almost fully recovered, she still could not quite get away and a shark bit off part of her dorsal fin. During those months, Face and Bet doubled their time together. This year in 2013, before Friday the 13th, they were spending almost half of their time together. How can I say that Bet and Face began to spend more time together than before? Data. The technical scientific term for animal friendship is an association. Associations between animals are measured with the coefficient of association or COA. There are a couple of formulas for calculating COAs. Generally, the coefficient is a ratio calculated by doubling the number of times a pair of animals was seen together and dividing it by the combined number of times they were seen at all. Mother-calf pairs have a COA of 1.00, indicating that they are together 100 percent of the time. COAs of .30 to .50 are often used to indicate true friendship. I generated COAs for Face and Bet across the years of our study and found evidence of what we might call, in human terms, a growing friendship. Their COAs for the last two years are .35 and .45, respectively. As Dolphin Watch has reported, Face had many associations. Bet mainly had Face.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Old Pinellas Bayway Bridge becomes artificial reefThe old Pinellas Bayway Bridge became part of the Pinellas Countys artificial reef system in the Gulf of Mexico over the summer. About 12,500 tons of bridge material from the demolition of the old Bayway Bridge went to the South County Reef. The deployments began in May and were completed by mid-September. Orion Marine Group Inc., who was contracted by the Florida Department of Transportation to demolish the old Bayway Bridge and construct a new four-lane high-level bridge, donated the bridge material. The Indian Shores and Treasure Island II Reefs also received some new material; each received 50 large reef balls. The project was funded in part through a grant from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to provide new fishing and diving opportunities. The reefs provide valuable underwater habitats for marine life. There are 43 reef sites along the Gulf Coast of Pinellas County from Tarpon Springs to St. Pete Beach, located from 200 yards to 38 miles offshore, and one in Tampa Bay located northeast of the St. Petersburg Municipal Pier. Pinellas County Solid Waste manages the Pinellas County Artificial Reef Program in coordination with state and federal agencies.

PROMISE TIME, from page 10A18A Schools Leader, October 10, 2013 LOWTLOWT091913 100313 101013 092613 able to pull a preliminary report to see how they were doing so far. Im able to see right away, pinpointing, so were not losing time trying to find out what the kids need, Fleisch said. Its right there. Before, we were able to find out what the kids needed with our FAIR testing and our FCAT, but what to do about it? And thats the nice thing about this i-Ready program because it gives you ready-made lesson plans. These lesson plans are written out by professionals, Spence said, and help make better use of teachers time. The students will re-take the diagnostic mid-year and at the end of the year, said Debbie Volk, senior researcher at the JWB. Meanwhile, tutors and the facilitators have plenty of real-time data at their fingertips to track progress, included colorcoded charts that indicate what grade-level each student is at in each area. Michele John of Clearwater is an English as a Second Language teacherat Belcher Elementary as well as a tutor for the Promise Time program. If a teacher tells students to open up a book, some kids will immediately shut down, John said. However, these computerized lessons speak the kids language and engages them in the lessons. A lot of times, when students are in that situation, theres that constant, I dont think Ill ever succeed because Im being held back by the situation Im living in, John said. But if they realize that their lives are dictated by the actions that they do, not what other people do, and the only people who can hold themselves and they realize the potential that they have, they will be much more willing to become involved and focus on achieving their dreams and different successes in school. Especially when programs such as this are exciting and not dry, it can help those students realize that these skills are something that will help them move forward in their future, John said. Promise Time also has a take-home component where kids can log on through the Internet at home to continue their lessons and games at home. Because of how individualized i-Ready is, kids will be met on their level, no matter what level that is. If after-school kids happen to be gifted students, the program will allow them to work ahead and encounter new challenges, lessons and projects so they wont be bored. Additionally, the Promise Time program helps teach more than just academics. The ability to stay on task in the classroom, the ability to stand in line and to exhibit appropriate behavior and all of those things that are non-cogitative skills, Spence said. Those are all skills that, given more time in the day, you can really focus on, Spence said. But during the school day, with 18 to 20 students in a class, the teacher really doesnt have time to do those extra pieces. So thats really where you see enormous gains socially, emotionally and academically. Also, after school programs in general help keep kids on track and out of trouble, Spence added. Research has shown that the prime time for kids to get into trouble is between 3 and 7 p.m., so this offers positive, structured, supervised activities. Of course, the kids have already had a long day at school, so the Promise Time program is broken up so it isnt all continuous studying. Tutoring at Belcher Elementary begins at 3:05 and lasts for two hours, Fleisch said, and tutors spend 30 minutes each day with each child or group. The remaining time is organized by the sponsoring after-school program organization. In the case of Belcher Elementary, that is the YMCA of the Suncoast. They get to work on other, broader skills, fun activities, and hands-on projects that connect to what kids are learning during the regular school day. Some of the components that we cover are leadership skills, college and career readiness, arts education, and 21st century skills, said Jennifer Crabtree of Clearwater, operating director of Pinellas School-Aged Programs of the YMCA of the Suncoast. The YMCA staff is also able to do hands-on projects and games that disguise learning, Crabtree said, such as learning fractions with dice or M&Ms. Linda Thomas, school-age program management director with the YMCA of the Suncoast, added that they learn how to cook healthy recipes which they can then take home to their families. Therefore, the Promise Time program is also encouraging healthy eating which also can filter into the home life. On Fridays at Belcher is Club Day, when the kids partake in fun activity clubs and field trips. Having all of these fun additions to the traditional school day can make kids excited to come to school and change their attitude about school, Crabtree said. In the end, what all of the parties involved want, from the JWB and Pinellas County School system to the individual schools and sponsored after-school providers, is to help the kids learn, have fun while doing it, and make a positive impact for their futures.

When I was about 8, we took a trip to Las Vegas and the Cirque du Soleil show Love had billboards all over the place, Charlie explained. I asked my dad what that was all about. It was the first time I really listened to The Beatles. Charlies dad bought him every Beatles CD. I was hooked, Charlie said. I was learning the drum parts to every song, trying to sing like Paul McCartney and trying to figure out all those chords. That really took me to the next level. Charlies younger brother Kevin followed the same path. My brother and my dad were always listening and playing music, so I was always around it, Kevin said. We took a trip to Orlando when I was 9 years old.

Clockwise from left are Klyde Jones, Freddy V, Rocky Bryant, Alan Gorrie and Onnie McIntyre.The Ries Brothers will be the youngest lead-in act to the headliner in the 34-year history of the Clearwater Jazz Holiday. This local band from Clearwater consists of Charlie, 18, and Kevin, 14. They will be joined on stage by Vini Lopez, Bruce Springsteens original drummer and founding member of the E Street Band. It was 40 years ago when Lopez along with Springsteen and the E Street Band opened up for Chicago on a 36-venue tour, which included Madison Square Garden. The Ries Brothers play extensively around the Tampa Bay area and have played in Los Angeles and the Midwest. Older brother Charlie has a very unique talent of playing multiple instruments at once. He is the lead singer for the band, plays drums with his right hand and simultaneously plays keyboard base with his left. Kevin is an extremely talented guitar player who also helps out with the background vocals and songwriting for the duo. The brothers have recorded CDs of their original music in both Tampa and Nashville. They even filmed a video for the song I Need You, which can be viewed on YouTube. The Ries Brothers success hardly came overnight. Their passion for music began at an early age. I have just always felt connected to it, said older brother Charlie. Listening to the radio, I wanted to be able to produce those sounds and figure out what they were doing. See JAZZ, page 4B Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

If those elements make up the recipe for a successful flick, the chefs in charge of preparing Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 doubled no, tripled most of the ingredients. Seriously, the filmmakers must have been binging on sugar cubes from preproduction through postproduction. Kids will find the shiny packaging irresistible: The visuals are surprisingly stunning, the pacing extraordinarily brisk and the cuteness level well, its as cute as a button on a kitten in a tutu with a pink polka-dot bow. Fortunately, there is a respectable story to buttress all that glittery surface material. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where the first film in Sony Pictures Animations franchise left off. At the end of the first film, inventor Flint Lockwood and his friends believed they had saved the world. They thought they had destroyed his most infamous invention the Flint Lockwood Diatomic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator, or FLDSMDFR for short. The FLDSMDFR turned water into food causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes. In the sequel, Flint discovers his invention actually survived and that it is now creating food-animals. These foodimals soon take over Swallow Falls, the island home of Flint and his friends. In charge of a clean-up operation, super-inventor Chester V, Flints childhood idol and CEO of Live Corp., taps Flint to locate FLDSMDFR before the foodimals have a chance to leave the island and take over the world. Flint and his friends travel back to Swallow Falls and face hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other foodimals. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 borrows the sense of wonder expressed in the early scenes of Jurassic Park when revealing the world of the foodimals. Audiences also will find a similar theme at work: Science, unchecked by a moral compass, often leads to bad things. In this film, it is Chester V who lacks principles. Though his friends are quick to spot Chester Vs duplicity, Flint, blinded by his adoration, is easily manipulated and gradually finds himself estranged from his comrades. The voice cast includes Bill Hader as Flint, Anna Faris as Samantha Sam Sparks, James Caan as Tim Lockwood, Will Forte as Chester V, Andy Samberg as Reel TimeLee Clark Zumpe Movie review Photo courtesy of SONY PICTURES ANIMATION From left, Manny (Benjamin Bratt), Earl (Terry Crews), Flint (Bill Hader), Brent (Andy Samberg), Steve the Monkey (Neil Patrick Harris) and Samantha (Anna Faris) react to one of the foodimals on Swallow Falls in Sony Pictures Animations Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

The film showcases two relationships as it develops its narrative. Flint continues to have issues with his widowed father, unable to connect fully with him despite his fathers newfound confidence in his son. Interestingly, it is Tim who finds greater purpose and, in doing so, bridges the fatherson gap. Equally important is the evolution of the relationship between Chester V and Barb, the superinventors talking and lipstickwearing orangutan with a human brain. Barb plays the role of obedient assistant, mistaking Chester Vs endless mandates and demands for signs of friendship. Barb is eventually forced to recognize his bullying demeanor as tyrannical oppression. Visually, the animation in Sonys franchise differs from Disneys animated features. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 features larger-than-life character designs, sometimes wildly exaggerated facial expressions and radiantly outlandish landscapes. The foodimals gradually become the heart of the film, and the filmmakers went to great lengths to deliver a delectable smorgasbord of brilliantly imagined food-animal mash-ups. Kids will love the look of the film as well as the comic wordplay. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is full of fun foodie puns that keep younger audiences laughing, from the leek in the boat to a necessary cutting of the cheese web. What else would a cheespider weave? Adults will appreciate the stunning visuals and cultural references, although overindulging in REVIEW, from page 2Bthe endless puns may lead to an upset tummy for some. The key ingredients in the narrative keep the film interesting for adults and serve as subtle lesson for younger viewers. Overall, the second course in the franchise is as appetizing as the first, even though watching it is likely to lead to brief episodes of hyperactivity.Photo courtesy of SONY PICTURES ANIMATION Flint and his friends discover how FLDSMDFR has transformed Swallow Falls in Sony Pictures Animations Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

At left, Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth star in Romeo & Juliet. Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:Captain PhillipsGenre: Action, drama and thriller Cast: Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Barkhad Abdi, Max Martini, Yul Vazquez, Michael Chernus, Chris Mulkey, Corey Johnson, David Warshofsky, John Magaro and Angus MacInnes Director: Paul Greengrass Rated: PG-13 Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is through director Paul Greengrasss distinctive lens simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabamas commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.Machete KillsGenre: Action Cast: Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr., Walt Goggins, William Sadler, Demian Bichir and Mel Gibson Director: Robert Rodriguez Rated: R Machete Kills is an action-packed thrill ride about the adventures of legendary secret agent Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo). In his latest mission, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President (Carlos Estevez) to stop a crazed global terrorist (Mel Gibson) from starting a nuclear war. With a bounty on his head, Machete faces death at every turn from an all-star cast of deadly assassins. Breaking all the rules, visionary director Robert Rodriguez leads this star-studded ensemble on one of the wildest adventures to save the world ever captured on film!Romeo & JulietGenre: Drama Cast: Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti and Stellan Skarsgard Director: Carlo Carlei Rated: PG-13 The families of Montague and Capulet use any excuse to publicly fight in the streets of Verona, drawing a strict rebuke from the Prince (Stellan Skarsgrd). But young Romeo (Douglas Booth) of the Montagues is not interested he is far too in love with Rosaline, a cousin to the Capulets, a romance which his cousin Benvolio (Kodi Smit-McPhee) urges him not to pursue. But that night, there is to be a masked celebration at the Capulet estate, and Romeo manages to secure an invitation. The Capulet household prepares for the event, where Lord and Lady Capulet (Damian Lewis, Natascha McElhone) hope that their daughter Juliet (Hailee Steinfeld) will accept the advances of young Count Paris (Tom Wisdom). A free spirit little interested in romance, Juliet seems more interested in bantering with her nurse (Lesley Manville) than listening to her parents. At the ball, Romeo instantly forgets his feelings for Rosaline when he spies Juliet; she is likewise struck dumb when she sees Romeo. They dance briefly, noted by Juliets cousin Tybalt (Ed Westwick), who is told by Lord Capulet to let them be and not start trouble. Later, Romeo and Juliet are dismayed to learn that their new loves are of the rival family; undaunted, Romeo spies Juliet on her balcony and boldly declares his love for her. Will their boldness and bravery in love result in eternal happiness or tragedy?For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the leftside menu.

We went to visit the Hard Rock Caf and took a tour of the memorabilia they had there Kevin was particularly floored by something he saw in the John Lennon Room. I saw a video of Jimi Hendrix and also one of his guitars, Kevin said. I couldnt believe what he was doing. After that, I had to find out and had to try to do that. It took a while to learn some of his songs, but there is nothing like that feeling when you learn something you thought was so hard. This summer, the brothers were two of only 25 musicians ages 14 to 21 in the state of Florida to be selected for the LA Grammy Museum Music Revolution Project in conjunction with Ruth Eckerd Hall. Following that honor, the brothers learned that they would be performing at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday. Its hard to describe how it feels, The Ries Brothers said in a recent email interview. Its been our dream for as long as we remember, to play on a huge stage like that. The fact that were playing before Chicago makes it even more amazing. Finding out that they would be opening for an iconic group like Chicago delighted the brothers. Theyre music legends, the brothers said. We really couldnt believe it when we heard the news. I know there was a lot of jumping up and down. Were just really pumped and excited now. The Ries Brothers also are looking forward to being part of the audience at this years festival. Really, we are looking forward to seeing all of the acts, they said. Chicago, of course, is our No. 1, but there are going to be so many amazing bands that we really want to watch and learn from them all. For information on The Ries Brothers, visit www.riesbrothers.com.Festival headlinersC h i c a g o headlines the first day of the festival, taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. The legendary rock band with horns, Chicagos wealth of lifetime achievements include a Grammy Award, multiple American Music Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor and keys to and proclamations from an impressive list of U.S. cities. According to Chicagos official Facebook page, the bands record sales top the 100,000,000 mark, and include 21 Top 10 singles, five consecutive No. 1 albums, 11 No. 1 singles and five Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 32 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards. Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in five decades. The lineup on tour will include original band members Robert Lamm on keyboards and vocals, Lee Loughnane on trumpet, James Pankow on trombone and Walt Parazaider on woodwinds, as well as Jason Scheff on bass, vocals, Tris Imboden on drums, Keith Howland on guitar, Lou Pardini on keyboards, vocals and Drew Hester on percussion. The second day of the festival will present an evening performance featuring P a u l B r o w n and L a r r y C a r l t o n Brown a two-time Grammy Award winning jazz producer, engineer, and guitarist started off as a sound engineer at the age of 15. He has since expanded his career into producing hit jazz albums, such as Boney James Trust in 1992, and releasing four of his own albums since his debut release Up Front in 2004. The 2011 Canadian Smooth Jazz Best Vocalist nominee currently has more than 40 No. 1 hits on the Radio & Records smooth jazz chart, and is considered to be the genres top producer. Carlton is an American jazz guitarist, dividing his recording time between solo recordings and session appearances with popular bands. He has won four Grammys for his performances and compositions as well as 19 nominations. T o w e r o f P o w e r headlines Saturdays lineup. According to a press release from Webster & Associates LLC, Towers musical odyssey actually began in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen Doc Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilios house, Emilios father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: Hire that guy, hes got something. Doc and his signature baritone sax sound were now in the band, and on Aug. 13, 1968, Tower of Power, as they are known today, began playing gigs and soon became very well known in the area. Many other bands came out of the San Francisco Bay area in the late s bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, Big Brother, Journey, Cold Blood and others all helped to define the San Francisco Sound. Tower of Powers big break came after playing at a Tuesday night audition at the Fillmore in 1970, when the band was signed to Bill Grahams San Francisco records and their first album, East Bay Grease, was recorded. All of the compositions were original tunes written by Castillo and Kupka. Their next album, Bump City, was recorded on the Warner Bros. label, and this led to a string of hits and memorable albums that include many of the songs that fans come out in force to hear, even to this day. Tower of Power celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2008 at a very special reunion show at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco. In addition to the 10 current members of the band, another 20 musicians and vocalists that at one time held a position with the band appeared with them. The show was filmed and is available on DVD. Of the 10 current members, Emilio Castillo, Rocco Prestia, Stephen Kupka, and David Garibaldi are four of the bands founding members. B r a n d i C a r l i l e takes the stage Sunday evening, closing out the festival. In her early 20s, Carlile landed a record deal with Columbia Records and with the guidance of producer Rick Rubin recorded and released her debut album in early 2005. She recorded the album with her twin bothers and initially reluctant band members Phil and Tim Hanseroth. T-Bone Burnett produced Carliles second effort, the 2007 album The Story. The album reached No. 58 on the Billboard 200 and features her brothers along with drummer Matt Chamberlain, cellist Josh Neumann and backing vocals by the Indigo Girls on the Cannonball track. The song The Story received significant television exposure, helping to broaden Carliles audience base. The song was used in an episode of Greys Anatomy and later in advertisements for the Travel Channel series Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. Her most recent album, Bear Creek, was released in 2012.

PETERSBURG In support of his latest album Feeling Mortal, country music icon Kris Kristofferson will make his only Tampa Bay appearance Wednesday, Oct. 16, 7:30 p.m., at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College, 253 Fifth Ave. N. Presented as part of the Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road series, tickets start at $45. Call 7917400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com. Kristofferson is a Country Music Hall of Famer who ranks among the most versatile of American talents. Hes been a Golden Gloves boxer, a Rhodes scholar, a college football player, an acclaimed actor, a military officer, a helicopter pilot, a Grammy-winner, a screw-up and an icon, and now he finds himself releasing the third Don Wasproduced album in a twilight years trilogy. Feeling Mortal follows 2009s Closer To The Bone and 2006s This Old Road in examining hardwon grace. Born in 1936, Kristofferson took a tortuous path toward country stardom. An award-winning short story writer as well as a Golden Gloves boxer, he graduated from Pomona College in 1958 with a degree in creative writing. From there, he attended Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. While in England, he began performing as Kris Carson, playing country and folk music. In 1960, Kristofferson joined the United States Army, serving as a helicopter pilot in Germany. He was offered a teaching position at West Point. He turned it down in order to pursue his dream of becoming a successful songwriter. At first, Kristofferson struggled. He took whatever work he could find to pay the bills, including working as a janitor at Columbia Records. Dave Dudley best remembered for his country hit Six Days on the Road recorded Kristoffersons Viet Nam Blues in 1966. This single helped establish Kristofferson as an emerging songwriter and, over the next few years, more of his original songs reached the charts, recorded by musicians such as Billy Walker & the Tennessee Walkers, Ray Stevens, Jerry Lee Lewis and Faron Young. In 1969, Roger Miller recorded Kristoffersons song Me and Bobby McGee. The song reached No. 12 on the U.S. Country chart. Gordon Lightfoot also had success with the song in 1970. Janis Joplin covered the song on her 1971 album Pearl. Her version reached No. 1 on the U.S. Hot 100 chart. Kristofferson released his own debut album on Monument Records in 1970. Kristofferson featured both new songs and previous hits. His second album, The Silver Tongued Devil and I, reached No. 4 on the U.S. Country charts in 1971 and was followed by Border Lord in 1972. Kristoffersons fourth album, Jesus Was a Capricorn, was released in 1972 and featured the No. 1 hit Why Me. Kristofferson also spends part of his time focusing on an acting career which began in 1971 in The Last Movie, directed by Dennis Hopper. Over the years, he has appeared in dozens of films, including roles in Alice Doesnt Live Here Anymore, Convoy, Heavens Gate, Blade and Payback. He won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor Musical or Comedy for his role in A Star Is Born in 1976. More recently, he portrayed Reed Haskett, father of Clay Haskett, in the film Dolphin Tale about Clearwater Marine Aquariums best-known dolphin resident, Winter.Limited immortalityKris Kristofferson remembers immortality. Nothing could kill me, he says, recalling his 1960s days in Nashville, when he roared for years on end, somehow finding time amidst the chaos to change the language of country music. In a biography provided by his publicist, he reflects on his wild days. I was rolling cars and wrecking motorcycles, drinking and doing everything I could to die early. But it didnt work. In fact, Kristofferson is 76 now and on his 28th album the aptly titled Feeling Mortal. Going back to the beginning, the songs have been reflections of where I was at that point in my life, he says. I always try to be as honest as I can in the songwriting, otherwise theres no point in doing it: I might as well be doing an advertising job or something. And what Im finding, to my pleasant surprise at this age, is that Im more inclined to laughter than tears. I hope Ill feel this creative and this grateful until they throw dirt over me. Kristofferson and Was spent three days recording Feeling Mortal, cutting 20 songs and picking 10, then bolstering the basic tracks with stellar instrumental work from guitarist Mark Goldenberg, pedal steel master Greg Leisz, keyboardist Matt Rollins, violinist and vocalist Sara Watkins, bassist Sean Hurley and drummer Aaron Sterling. Above all, Kristofferson is happy to be happy, grateful to be grateful, and wholly unwilling to take the credit for the wondrous way its all worked out. In the end, Feeling Mortal is a melodic note of gratitude. Photo by MARY ELLEN MARKKris Kristofferson is touring in support of his new album Feeling Mortal.
