Ulmer Park festival begins New development breaks groundThe corner of U.S. 19 and Roosevelt will see new apartments, Walmart By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Developers of a new 342-unit luxury apartment complex called Gateway North broke ground on the project Oct. 10, at the southeast corner of U.S. 19 and East Bay Drive. The redeveloped corner will include a Walmart Supercenter, currently under construction and due to open in January, as well as a new Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority station. Additionally, a 6,119-square-foot Wawa convenience store is in the middle of development review with the city of Largo. Gateway North, at 2681 Roosevelt Blvd., is the first high-end apartment community in Largo in roughly 20 years, bringing a new residential character to the area, said Carol Stricklin, Largos development director. This is an extremely important project for Largo Town Center, she said. Its also a very important catalyst for redevelopment. Developers of the apartment complex, Pollack Shores Real Estate Group, worked with Walmarts development team to completely redo the infrastructure of the entire parcel, revamping shared roadways and the sewer system, explained Teresa Brydon, Largo economic development manager. According to Pollack Shores, Gateway Norths 16.25 acres will include a lake with a walking trail, a resort-style clubhouse with a waterscaped pool, cabanas, a fitness center, a business center and outdoor grilling and entertainment areas. The three-story apartments will have private patios or balconies, washer and drier connections, walk-in closets, ceramic tile, microwaves and dishwashers. This project meets our goal of developing along high-visibility, high-traffic locations with access to a substantial and growing base of employers coupled with numerous retail/entertainment options, Steven Shores, company president stated.

TORRESLARGO Ulmer Park came alive with activity during the first monthly market and community festival Oct. 12. Community groups joined artists, crafters and vendors selling their wares to the passing community while live music played from the gazebo. A food truck sold barbecue meals, and Largos own Dolcinis Gelato provided frozen treats. The market, organized by Tanya Pistillo of Wandering Star Gallery, started as a monthly sidewalk sale outside the businesses along West Bay Drive. The market will be held second Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Ulmer Park, 301 W. Bay Drive. Pistillo said she already had vendors and entertainment lined up for next months market. Based on the feedback she received from the community, she wants to make the market a weekly event. To participate, call Pistillo at 465-8558. County staff takes on flood insurance issue By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER As local property owners and the real estate market struggle to cope with the backlash of federal flood insurance reform, Pinellas County staff is working on ways to help reduce the pain of rising rates. Oct. 1 came and went, and the U.S. Senate failed to pass a bill delaying implementation of Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012. The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill in July delaying implementation of the act for one year. Now, many property owners with subsidized policies from the National Flood Insurance Program are facing rate increases of 25 percent annually until their rate reflects true risk. Those who are not currently dealing with increased costs are unable to sell their homes due to exorbitant rates new property owners would have to pay. The real estate market is reeling with reports of lost sales coming in from all over the county. Larry Arrington, director of Strategic Planning and Initiatives, told Pinellas County Commissioners Oct. 8 that staff was exploring options and working to identify actions at the administrative level that could help mitigate the adverse effect of BW-12. Congress passed BW-12 in an attempt to reduce the debt of the NFIP after claims outpaced revenue following Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ike, Tropical Storm Debby and super-storm Sandy. BW-12 affects all the major components of the FEMA administered program, including insurance rates, flood maps, grant programs and flood plain management plans. Arrington explained that FEMA plays a critical role in assessing flood risk and creation of a flood plain map that reflects risk in geographical areas. That map directly affects insurance rates, he said. Its a very involved process, he said, which includes not only risk from flooding but protective measures taken in a community, type of land use and other factors. Pinellas County uses FEMAs map when it considers zoning changes and regulations within a flood plain. The map plays a factor in economic development plans. It provides guidance with disaster and evacuation planning, among other things. Pinellas is ground zero for this problem with 50,000 subsidized policies, more than any other county in the nation, he said. If we develop a first class flood plain management plan, we will have a better community rating with a direct bearing on rates.

4A Largo Leader, October 17, 2013The first apartments should be ready for residents in late spring 2014, with final completion scheduled for the fall. Matrix Residential will lease and manage the community, according to the press release.The fee moratoriumThe Pollack Shores praised the city for Largos development team as well as its temporary waiver of city impact fees. The citys moratorium on park and facility impact fees is the reason this project is a reality, stated Anthony Everett, director of Central Florida for Pollack Shores. Largos moratorium is due to expire by June 2014. Developers of projects that wont be completed by that point have petitioned the city to extend the deadline. Meanwhile, the citys parks division and its community supporters have argued for the necessity of replenishing the fund that allows the city to purchase more parkland. The new apartments will provide new housing for workers in Pinellas Countys Gateway area, one of the states largest employment areas, according to the press release. We support high-quality projects of this kind because Largo believes that being businessfriendly is extremely important to promoting economic development, stated Mayor Pat Gerard.An incoming WalmartWalmart recently opened a temporary hiring center to staff up to 300 full and part-time jobs at the supercenter, scheduled to open at the end of January. Everything just finally is all starting to unfold, said store manager Ron Frietas earlier this month. I think its a great site. Frietas added that based on his interaction with neighbors so far, Department, said flood plain management was a voluntary program that most counties, including Pinellas, do that involves going above and beyond minimum requirements. Pinellas County has participated in the program since the 1990s and has gone beyond the requirements to the point that the ISO rating for unincorporated areas is a seven. He said other jurisdictions within the county also participate. Ratings throughout Pinellas range from a six to an eight. Flood insurance policy holders in communities that rate a 10 receive no discount. A rating of a seven, earns property owners a 15 percent discount on their flood insurance. A community that rates a six receives a 20 percent discount. Beardslee said staff was looking at what is being done currently and what else could be done to lower the countys rating and subsequently reduce flood insurance premiums. FEMA awards points toward an ISO rating based on a number of criteria including such things as the amount of open space and land set aside for preservation along with a communities land development code. FEMA also awards points based on the quality of water drainage and conveyance systems. The countys recent undertaking to improve its stormwater system with a dedicated funding source via a surface water fee could prove very instrumental in ultimately lowering insurance rates. Rahim Harji, senior engineer with the Department of Environment and Infrastructure, explained some of the work staff was doing, including assessing the minimum requirements needed to comply with FEMAs flood insurance program regulations. Staff also is working on a list of things that could be done to improve the countys rating and looking for the items that would be most cost beneficial. He said they were exploring leading practices in flood plain management and looking at what is being done in other communities. Staff is checking the consistency of county codes in relationship with flood plain management and development. Harji said staff also recognized it was important to embrace technology and merge data correctly. Were looking at a strategy to mitigate flood insurance rates and reduce the number of properties in the flood plain by land use and zoning planning, he said. Arrington said part of the plan includes appointing a current employee as a flood plain management coordinator. He said having a dedicated employee would allow the county to realize the best return on investment toward getting to a first class program. We see the stakes are high and were giving the best response we can, Arrington said.

INSURANCE, from page 1ASeveral new development projects underway in Largo By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The Walmart, Gateway North apartment complex and potential Wawa planned for the corner of Roosevelt Boulevard and U.S. 19 could describe a representative sample of the many development projects in the works in Largo.Along MissouriOn the opposite side of the city, the former Kmart at 990 Missouri Ave. is ready to be demolished. In its place, an 118,000-square-foot Walmart will be built to replace the existing store across the street. The company is securing a contractor for the project and will likely request demolition approval from the city of Largo in December, with construction to begin after that, said Teresa Brydon, Largos economic development manager. But thats just the beginning of projects announced for the corridor surrounding Missouri Avenue and Rosary Road. In the next two years, that whole area is going to be completely redeveloped, and its kind of exciting, Brydon said. Its going to look really nice. On the north side of Rosary Road, L.A. Fitness is seeking approval of a new 41,000-square-foot building to replace the Publix at 1229 Missouri Ave. In fact, the entire plaza is set to get an updated facade designed to attract new tenants, with L.A. Fitness as the driver for the stores, Brydon said. Kimco Realty, which owns the property Walmart is currently leasing on the south side of Rosary Road, has been talking with a couple of new tenants to fill the plaza and soon-to-be-vacant space. On the northeast corner of Missouri Avenue and Rosary Road, Wawa is seeking approval for another location at 1215 Missouri Ave. The only unoccupied space in that corner will be the property behind the potential convenience store and gas station, a space which Brydon said wont remain vacant for long. Theyre going to have a very good chance of being able to put a tenant on the footprint with all the new retailers that are coming into that immediate area, Brydon said. To facilitate development, the city has been working with Walmart to improve its side of Rosary Road with sidewalks and serious landscaping, designed to make the roadway more pedestrian and bicycle friendly, Brydon said. The city will be encouraging developers on the centers on the other side of the road to do the same.Ulmerton CrossingsThe city of Largo is waiting to hear back from the developers of Ulmerton Crossings, a 12,510-square-foot retail plaza. Brydon said Carlos Yepes of Belleair Development Group was working on developing the entire footprint of the block at the southwest corner of Ulmerton and Starkey roads. New tenants for the plaza have not been confirmed, but Yepes is aggressively trying to pick up another restaurant, she said. A 3,750-square-foot bank is slated for the corner of the plaza. Another Wawa has been approved within the block, at 9010 Ulmerton Road. An 118,000-square-foot Walmart Neighborhood Market will be built at 9020 Ulmerton Road. Brydon credited recent development in the area, including the new Thortons at 8875 Ulmerton Road, to the road modifications of the major roadway. We do see that having that intersection completed and developed just helps with the rest of the community in that area, she said. Were redeveloping the corners now. Well continue to see the impact of those redevelopment projects in (the) future. The owner of the parcel north of Thortons, for example, is waiting for improvements to the sewer infrastructure, tied in with the road project, before redeveloping, she said. The entire Ulmerton Road project wont be finished until 2015. Another large factor in the development of the area will be the relocation of Great Bay Distributors, at the northwest corner of the intersection 1.

Development of 7-Eleven, pending approval 19. Site improvements at Clearwater Ice Arena 20. Rubin Professional Offices 21. Family DollarDevelopment projects shown on the map include: of Starkey and Ulmerton roads. The company has outgrown the space and will be consolidating its Largo and north county locations to an industrial property in north St. Petersburg. Our expectation is in the next five to 10 years, that entire site will be available for redevelopment as well, Brydon said. The city doesnt know if the company planned to sell or lease its property. Its unfortunate that they had to leave. At the same time, there was no place for them to grow in that location, Brydon said. We look forward to working with them.New housing to be builtA housing complex called Bayside Townhomes, to be built at 15400 Roosevelt Blvd., is seeking approval with the development review committee. The property, just off Bayside Bridge, used to be a mobile home park and has been vacant a long time, Brydon said. Largo recently annexed the property, to be developed into 93 townhomes. Construction has already begun on three other housing projects. Two are very similar. The Seasons of Belleair, at 1704 ClearwaterLargo Road, and the Seasons of Largo, at 4175 East Bay Drive, will both be 80-bed assisted living facilities. Construction on Pinellas Heights, a 154-unit senior housing complex, is ahead of schedule, Brydon said. Their exceptions are to be open probably in April, she said.Other projectsProjects set for construction include the property at 12022 Indian Rocks Road, to be redeveloped into a new Publix and a Family Dollar at 705 Eighth Ave. SW. A new Chase Bank is being designed for the West Bay Drive redevelopment area. A couple of businesses in the city are expanding their operations. Tech Data wants to build a new 46,800-square-foot office building on its existing campus. Its great to have their headquarters expanding in Largo, Brydon said. Theyre kind of bursting at the seams. The Clearwater Ice Arena, 13940 Icot Blvd., Barley Mow Brewing Company, at 140 Sixth St. NW., and Metro Storage at 13100 66th St. are all renovating their properties with small construction projects. The Sheriffs Office administration building and emergency operations center, currently under construction at 10750 Ulmerton Road, is part of the redevelopment of the Seminole Boulevard corridor, south of the Ulmerton intersection. Thats going to be a huge plus for us, Brydon said. In fact, the sale of Twedts Bowling Center was likely prompted by that project, she said. While the new owners of the property have yet to submit plans to the city for the new retail mall, Brydon said they have secured the interest of a few restaurants and stores. For a list of the citys development projects, updated monthly, visit www.largo.com/projects.Graphic by CEDRIC ROCHEFORT Graphic courtesy of PSTAThis conceptual drawing shows the Largo Commons bus station, currently being designed. DEVELOPMENT, from page 1Athe community is excited to see a Walmart coming to the area. The company is looking to transfer only 10 percent of its existing employee base to the new store. Walmart was able to apply for state job creation tax credits with the promise of bringing 150 full-time jobs to the area. To that end, the city of Largo approved a brownfield designation to the property in March, acknowledging that the previous occupants including a truck stop and an auto repair shop potentially left behind contamination that would have to be cleaned up. At the time, only two commissioners voted against the designation, arguing that tax credits should reward higher paying jobs. The Walmart hiring center is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. To 5 p.m., in suites 209 and 211 of Newport Square Office Park, 4625 E. Bay Drive. Applicants also can apply at careers.walmart.com. Through its Veterans Welcome Home Commitment, Walmart offers jobs to veterans who have been honorably discharged from active duty in the last 12 months. The address of the new Walmart will be 2677 Roosevelt Blvd.The transfer stationPSTA has an agreement with the site developers and the city to use a portion of the Crossroads parcel for a transfer facility. The station is slated for the east side of the Walmart, along a retention pond. It would provide a safer place to transfer between four existing PSTA routes, replacing the current station along U.S. 19. PSTA has allocated $600,000 in its current budget for the design and construction of four bus bays, shelters, benches and real time bus arrival information display boards.Reconstruction at Tri-CityMeanwhile, Tri-City Plaza across the street from East Bay Drive is set for a renovation. Properties owners, Kimco Largo, have submitted plans for the construction of 229,884 square feet of new retail space, after the demolition of the existing plaza. The redeveloped footprint will be built in two phases to allow some of the tenants to remain and relocate during construction. Theyre going to bring the (disjointed buildings) in line with one another, so its not so dysfunctional, Brydon explained. Right now, when you try to drive around it can get a little difficult. Thats all getting changed. The Publix will remain, but the buildings to the east of the store including the AMC movie theater will be redesigned. The two banks at the front of the property are independently owned and thus, along with the Wendys and the Chilis, wont be part of the redevelopment. The Applebees restaurant will be torn down and reconstructed.Largo to extend fee moratorium By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO The moratorium on Largo parkland impact and facility/capital improvement fees likely will be extended another two years, at the request of businesses planning new projects within the city because of the lower costs. The decision was unofficial; Largo commissioners will vote on the issue in November after city staff prepare an ordinance outlining the terms. But the developers of the Gateway North and Briarwood apartment complexes who both have experienced delays that endangered their ability to cash in on the moratorium could breath a sigh of relief as the city leaders spoke in favor of the program Oct. 16 I like the parks, but weve got all kinds of money to buy more of them We already have problems maintaining the parks that we have, said Commissioner Curtis Holmes. I think we ought to really work with the developers and give them a little slack and a break. The parkland impact fees are collected for the purchase of more land as it becomes available, allowing the city to offset development with more parks. But the fees can be significant, roughly $2,000 per housing unit, said Community Development Director Carol Stricklin. The purpose of the moratorium was to take advantage of the increasing real estate market and to stimulate residential development. I think from the level of interest and activity it has certainly had that effect, she said. Stricklin and her staff also proposed to extend the window within which projects must be completed from 12 months to 18 months, allowing developers more construction time. Projects that are being built in the city of Largo because of the moratorium include: Pinellas Heights senior housing; Gateway North apartments; the apartment complex slated at the former Briarwood RV Park, expected to start construction in November; Bay Isle Landing, a property that annexed into the city and is seeking approval for the construction of 96 townhouses; the restart of Whittington Court and Beacon Trace, both townhouse projects that began development in 2006, and finally Plantation, a 17-unit, single family residential project. The commissioners all said they liked seeing so much development, arguing that more time was needed to allow projects to take root in Largo. The parkland dedication fund is currently $1.5 million, and the facility/capital improvement fund has about $670,000, Stricklin said. While the moratorium continues, those funds cannot increase. Commissioner Woody Brown asked if projects within the citys downtown redevelopment districts could be entirely exempt from the fees, given that the citys largest and most popular park, Largo Central Park, was so nearby. City Attorney Alan Zimmet said he would research that possibility.Low income housingTwo projects proposing to build affordable senior housing within the city will be seeking federal funds to support their efforts. Commissioners agreed to support both projects, committing $75,000 of the citys State Housing Initiatives Housing Partnership, or SHIP, funds in hopes that at least one will receive the federal tax credits. No more than one project per county will be funded through the program. The Palms of West Bay, at 1260 W. Bay Drive, would be an 80-unit apartment complex; 70 percent of those apartments would be affordable. All 64 units of the Ibis Point housing project, at Mehlenbacher Road and 10th Street NW., would be affordable housing. Both projects would develop vacant properties. City Attorney Alan Zimmet, left, swears five members of the Largo Police Department into their new roles Oct. 16.

The drill involved using windows as a means of evacuating the building at 12301 Indian Rocks Road. These required windows are a secondary means of egress when the main door or hallway is compromised during a fire, explained Largo Fire Marshal Timothy Wedin. The goal of the drill was to better equip school staff and students to handle a real evacuation as well as demonstrate Largo Fire Rescues response to an evacuation incident. Fire Inspector Ronald Kinsey, who runs egress drills at private schools on a regular basis, organized and ran the drill. Bringing firefighters to perform the drill was designed to be a promotional event for Fire Prevention Week.

Crime beat Crime beatLanni, 36, during an altercation in the transport van. Lanni also was drunk and disorderly at the time. According to Gualtieri, We intend to determine whether our policies requiring inmate restraint and separation in the transport van were followed and to also review our training in this regard. The incident occurred shortly after the firm G4S was contracted by the Sheriffs Office to provide the prisoner transport services. On July 21, jail inmate Kelly Damon Harding was strangled by his cellmate Scott Alexander Greenberg, 27, when Greenberg forced wet toilet paper down Hardings throat. Greenberg has been charged with murder in this case. Along with the death investigation, Gualtieri ordered a review of jail booking and classification policies in late July. Based upon what we have learned, these two inmates should never have been housed together. We believe there was a serious lapse in classification policy compliance here. We intend to further investigate the actions of those responsible. All documentation from the two death investigations will be turned over to Administrative Investigations. According to the Sheriff, once the internal investigations are complete, any disciplines that may result will be made public and posted on the agencys website, where all agency disciplinary actions are currently posted.22-year-old man arrested for child pornPINELLAS PARK Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives arrested a 22-year-old man Oct. 9 on 11 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of promotion of child pornography. Detectives assigned to the Special Victims Unit served a search warrant at the Pinellas Park residence of Aaron Ray Barnhart, after conducting an undercover internet investigation that ran from June 10 to Aug. 31. Through their investigation, detectives identified Barnhart as a potential suspect, who was sharing child pornography videos via the Internet. Detectives obtained a search warrant, which was served at approximately 6:30 a.m. Barnhart was interviewed by detectives and reportedly admitted to the allegations. Barnhart was arrested and transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident. Bond was set at $130,000. Detectives said downloaded material that was found while serving the search warrant is currently under review and additional charges are pending. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office is a member of the Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.Gualtieri requests death investigationsLARGO Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri has initiated internal affairs investigations involving two separate in-custody death incidents. Based upon the results we have received from the initial inquiries into the deaths of Inmate Kelly Damon Harding (DOB 4/29/65) and detainee Thomas Morrow (DOB 10/4/53), I believe there are agency policy violations that require in-depth review by Internal Affairs, Gualtieri said in a press release, and I also see a possibility for discipline for some members involved in these cases. On July 6, Thomas Morrow was being transported to the Pinellas County Jail after being arrested by Treasure Island Police. Morrow was intoxicated and was severely injured by a second detainee, Leonard Aaron Barnhart Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Bill Young announced Oct. 9 that he is not running for reelection in 2014. Charles William Young, 82, of Indian Shores has served Floridas 13th Congressional District since 1971. The 13th Congressional District is the only district in Florida contained entirely within one county, according to information on the Congressmans website. It includes all of Pinellas County south of Clearwater except for precincts in south St. Petersburg, which are part of the Tampa-based 14th District. As Floridas longest serving Congressman, we appreciate Congressman Bill Youngs more than 50 years of service to Florida families, Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release. Throughout his career, Congressman Young has fought to make sure Washington acted in the best interests of the brave men and women who serve in our military. His unwavering dedication to Pinellas County and the Sunshine State will be missing in Washington. Young served 10 years in the Florida State Senate and 42 in the U.S. Congress. Young has been a strong advocate for Pinellas County, taking on local issues, including the congestion on U.S. 19. His website points to his work to attract high-tech jobs to St. Petersburg; improve health care for low-income children and families; protect the neighboring MacDill Air Force Base; build a state-of-the-art medical center for veterans at Bay Pines; ensure a steady supply of water for the Tampa Bay area; and offset the effects of erosion on the areas beaches. Young was born in Harmarville, Pa., and moved to Pinellas County at the age of 15. Congressman Young and his wife Beverly have three adult sons, Rob, Billy, and Patrick. Floridians owe Bill Young a debt of gratitude for his 53 years of service to our state and country, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio said in a statement released shortly after Youngs announcement. Bill has fought tirelessly for the interests in Pinellas County, St. Pete and the Tampa Bay area in the state legislature and U.S. Congress by helping to strengthen the states defense industry and creating thousands of jobs. Additionally, no one has fought harder for the servicemen and women in this country and for returning veterans than Bill and his wife, Beverly. Bill is a true statesman whose wisdom, commitment and expertise will be sorely missed in Congress. Jeanette (Rubios wife) and I wish Beverly and Bill all the best as they begin the next chapter of their life.Speculation beginsWho will run to fill Youngs position in Congress is the big question. Many names have been tossed around, including Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch. Welch posted Oct. 11 on his Facebook page that he would not be running. Welch stated that he doesnt live within the district, but more importantly, he wants to continue his work as county commissioner and focus on his family. State Senators Jack Latvala and Jeff Brandes also have stated they dont intend to run. Other names up for speculation include Alex Sink, even though she doesnt live in Pinellas, as well as County Commissioners Karen Seel, John Morroni, Charlie Justice and former commissioner Neil Brickfield. Even Youngs son Billy and his wife Beverly have been mentioned. Rep. C.W. Bill YoungFlorida supports lawsuit against FEMATALLAHASSEE Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Oct. 10 that they will be filing an amicus brief, or friend of the court brief, in Mississippis lawsuit against the federal governments National Flood Insurance Programs rate hike. Scott thanked Florida senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio for the work they were doing on behalf of the states property owners. He said the unfair rate hike could devastate Floridas real estate market and homeowners. Bondi said, Due to Congress failure to better protect consumers, Floridians are now facing increased flood insurance rates that could force them from their homes and hurt the economy. While we are in frequent communication with OIR to determine whether we can legally take additional action, we support Mississippis lawsuit. BriefsWest side of Wall Springs Park opensPALM HARBOR The west section of Wall Springs Park in Palm Harbor has reopened, after being closed Sept. 11 when a fire destroyed the observation tower. Pinellas County Parks and Conservation Resources staff has cleared the area; but, the public is asked to stay away from the immediate area of the towers foundation. The tower, which cost $315,000 to build, is expected to be rebuilt. The parks staff is currently working on the plans with engineers.Roche meets with international delegatesCLEARWATER Pinellas County Commissioner Norm Roche met with international delegates visiting from Afghanistan on Oct. 4. The delegates were taking part in World Partnerships Inc., which is a division of the U.S. State Departments International Visitor Leadership Program. Accompanied by department interpreters, the visitors toured several regions in the United States starting in Washington, D.C., and ending their 22-day visit with their final stops at the Pinellas County Courthouse in Clearwater and Clearwater City Hall. Roche spoke to the group, stressing the importance of the Florida Sunshine Law, which addresses accountability and transparency in county government and all government levels in the state of Florida. It was a great opportunity to share governance concepts with representatives from another country, said Roche. They asked insightful questions and I hope my responses added value to their experience, he added.Officers finish leadership programLARGO The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office announced the graduation of Capt. Jim Main and Lt. Michael Holbrook Oct. 10 from the Senior Leadership Program at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement headquarters in Tallahassee. The graduating class includes 35 senior managers representing criminal justice agencies from around the state. The goal of the Senior Leadership Program is to help graduates continue to develop their leadership skills and to prepare Floridas criminal justice professionals for future challenges. The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institutwas established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature in recognition of the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education of criminal justice professionals. Main has been employed with PCSO since June 1988 and Holbrook since July 1987.

St. Petersburgs CRA could become countywide model By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Despite budget concerns, Pinellas County Commissioners unanimously agreed to continue to work with the city of St. Petersburg to create a Community Redevelopment Area to combat the problem of blight and poverty. Commissioner Janet Long was absent. A study released last year identified five areas in the county that were most impoverished: south St. Petersburg, north Greenwood, east Tarpon Springs, Highpoint and Lealman. County Administrator Bob LaSala told commissioners during an Oct. 8 meeting that the plan the city and staff were working on to address the problem made sense. It may well serve as a precursor or model for the other four areas, he said. He recommended that the county approve conducting a blight study for the Southside St. Petersburg CRA and extend the deadline 120 days to come up with an interlocal agreement between the city and county to establish two tax increment financing districts and two redevelopment trust funds within the CRA. The proposed redevelopment area is about 4,700 acres, about 12 percent of the citys land, with a population of about 34,000, or 14 percent of the citys total population. Commissioner Susan Latvala asked why the countys wasnt considering work for all five identified areas. The volume of work is enormous, LaSala said. He also said he didnt think any other city was ready to begin, adding that the county didnt have the capacity to undertake multiple blight studies at one time. Latvala said she preferred to wait until the commission had a discussion to prioritize need and balance that need with county resources. Commissioner Charlie Justice said he thought the county should prioritize the Lealman area to make sure it had the appropriate level of support. Four areas have city support and one doesnt. Lealman should have our focus, Justice said. Commissioner Karen Seel assured Justice that Lealman was on the countys radar and she said the Juvenile Welfare Board would be working in that area. She also agreed with Latvalas concerns. If we do this for one city we have to be prepared to do for others, she said. St. Petersburg is the No. 1 city in our county, Commission John Morroni said. Their CRA will be a great exercise for the others. St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster urged the commission to approve continuing with the project. It is most important that we pass this and work together, he said. He echoed LaSalas thinking that St. Petersburg could provide the model for other areas. He said the plan allowed the resources necessary to go after grants and provide long-term service to the community. This is important. This is of countywide importance, he said. Its all about change. Its all about people. There are still many details to work out, but everyone agreed that it was time to move forward. Final approval of the CRA is not expected until sometime in 2014. Forty-five percent of our kids live in poverty, Commission Chair Ken Welch said. This is just as important as the sea level rising or flood insurance. Our community is not stable with this level of poverty.

Jeanyth Richard, known as Nicey, will have a procedure for keratoconus, which causes the cornea, the outer clear window of the eye, to progressively herniate outward and turn cone shape. We had people lined up when I opened the garage sale. The first person was an elderly woman on a walker who didnt even buy anything but handed me $20 for Nicey, Diana Flory said. Through other fundraising efforts the Florys collected enough money, $7,400, to pay for the cost for the first procedure, which is expected to stop the progression of the disease and prevent her corneas from rupturing. Richard has an appointment with Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler, in Beverly Hills, Calif. The specialist pioneered the Holcomb C3-R procedure that is named after Steve Holcomb, an Olympic bobsledder who was legally blind due to keratoconus until Wachler treated him. As a member of the First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks Beach, Flory went to St. Lucia on a mission trip in 2007 and first met Richard at a church function. She and her husband, Edward, have made arrangements to have Richard stay with them while she is in the United States. Richards medical visa was finally approved Oct. 10. Her medical procedure is slated for Oct. 24. Other treatments are expected. She will go back in on the 25th early morning for a final examination and we will fly back to Seminole that same day. I was hoping she would have a couple of days rest between flying to the U.S. and California but it just isnt working out, Flory said. Nevertheless, Flory is grateful for the support from the community and the turn of events. For a one and half day garage sale, we were able to make enough to pay for her flight to California, Flory said. Ive never doubted this day would come because I know that God has been in charge since day one when I first noticed that she had a very serious vision problem.

The job involves Mehlenbacher Road, which runs along the boundary of the two communities. A finish date of mid-August has not happened, and the project will not likely be done until mid-December, Public Works Director Robert David said at the Oct. 14 City Commission workshop. He said rainy weather has been the main cause. Belleair has been awarded quite a few rain days, David said. Work on Mehlenbacher has been ongoing for weeks, resulting in road closures and inconvenience for residents living in the area. Electronic signs have been placed indicating detours needed and construction dates. Resident Darlene Kavanagh had wanted to know when the work would be completed. She also had concerns about losing some of the right of way in front of her house, where her trash containers and mailbox sat. The curbing on the Belleair and Belleair Bluffs sides of the road does not match, Kavanagh said. Most of the grass area bordering the road will be replaced when the sidewalks are done, David said. The trash cans and mailboxes will be placed where they were, he told Kavanagh, but added she should expect a little less green area. There are different types of curbing on each side of the road for a reason, David said. Belleair has Miami curbs, while Belleair Bluffs uses F-type curbing. He said the F-type is more costly but directs water better. They drain better too, a significant advantage in Belleair Bluffs with its flooding issues, David pointed out. Commissioner Jack Nazario said the F-type curbs make Belleair Bluffs distinctive from Belleair and are something to be proud of. They increase property values too, said David.

Industry updatesLife Planning Center opensLARGO Project GRACE, an affiliate of Suncoast Hospice and its family of programs, and Diagnostic Clinic recently established the Life Planning Center, located in Diagnostic Clinics Largo office, 1301 Second Ave. SW. The center is designed to encourage patients and families to consider having conversations about healthcare decisions and options, complete and sign advance directive forms and share them with family members and health care providers. Their doctors refer patients for consultations at the center. For years, people have been advised to let their families and health care providers know what medical care and procedures they want or do not want, should they ever become unable to speak for themselves. Still, many individuals put off discussing advance care planning with their families and delay putting their preferences in writing. In todays changing health care climate, doctors are encouraged even evaluated regarding whether they discuss advance care planning with patients. We are so pleased to partner with Project GRACE in what I believe is the first such endeavor of its kind, said Dr. James Rivenbark in a press release. Rivenbark is chief medical and operations officer at Diagnostic Clinic. The Life Planning Center benefits patients and families by encouraging open, frank discussions, providing advance care planning forms and helping to sort out care options. Our doctors appreciate being able to offer this service to our patients. Diagnostic Clinic patients are invited to meet with Project GRACE representatives at the Life Planning Center, learn about advance care planning and take forms home with them as a basis for discussion. We offer information and guidance about living wills, choosing a healthcare surrogate and other considerations, said Rafael J. Sciullo, president and CEO of Suncoast Hospice. Advance care planning allows individuals to make their own decisions and provide a wonderful road map for families when questions about care options arise and patients may not be able to speak for themselves.

I am amazed at their involvement in their childs life and how much they do to make sure their child has as much of a normal life as possible as other kids their age. I can only imagine how challenging it is, but also how rewarding it can be to raise a child with special needs. One of my friends Linda Duart has a daughter, Kendal, 17, who has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autistic features. Kendal is the oldest of Linda and her husband Jeffs three children. The other two are Ryan, 15 and Zach, 9. Linda is her daughters caregiver almost 24/7. As you can imagine, not everywhere you go accommodates kids with special needs. I know we have come a long way, but if it werent for moms like Linda taking part and helping provide services for special needs kids, children like Kendal and others wouldnt be able to experience what other kids their age get to do. It melted my heart recently to see Kendal and some other special needs children be able to go in a bounce house during summer vacation bible school. You see, Kendal is confined to a wheelchair and to see her bouncing and laughing like the other kids was truly a blessing. Until I saw Kendal in the bounce house, it didnt hit me how I take for granted even something as simple as my kids jumping not to mention walking putting on their clothes by themselves, feeding themselves, washing themselves and going to school by themselves. Kendal does have a school that she goes to for kids with special needs. On Sunday, the family likes to be together and go to church together. Finding a church was a daunting experience for the Duarts. Linda recalled a few instances at church. Kendal was unable to sit through a church service and behave, she said. One time, she tossed her shoe and hit someone. She giggled at sounds she found amusing, like when someone went in and out of the door or even if someone coughed. One time, she got annoyed and just blurted out knock it off during the sermon. Even when the family found a church they all loved Faith Presbyterian Church there was no place for Kendal to learn and grow with God in fellowship. Linda asked the church if she could start a special needs Sunday school class. They said yes, and she started Gods Special Friends in 2008. Kendal was the first student and her son Zach was Lindas assistant. It seemed to be a great fit for Linda because she was already a substitute teacher in the Pinellas County school system for kids with special needs, and she had run a Moms Morning Out program. The Sunday school class, offered at 9:20 a.m., has been good for Kendal, but Linda would love to see it grow. She knows there is a need, but people just dont know the class is available. Another outreach program Linda started for special needs students is a class on Wednesdays, 6:15 to 7:30 p.m., during the Faith Presbyterians Pioneer Club. Pioneer Club is a learning and service club for kids. Lindas class involves not only a Bible study lesson, but praise music and even dancing. Its important to Linda and her husband to give Kendal the joys of life her other kids have. You will see Linda, her family and other kids in her classes out bowling, cheering at Thrashers games, line dancing and having parties for Christmas and Valentines Day. I think I have learned more from these children than they have learned from me, she said. They are such an inspiration and I love them. They are so accepting of everyone, no matter what. They dont put on any airs or worry about fashion or designer names. They dance and sing like no one is watching! We should be more like them. And if more of us were like Linda, this world would definitely be a better place for everyone. Gods Special Friends will have a glow party Wednesday, Oct. 23, 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Harvest Festival at Faith Presbyterian Church, 11501 Walker Ave. in Seminole. If you would like to know more about Gods Special Friends email Linda at jduart1@tampabay.rr.com.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 9, lives in Seminole.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, October 17, 2013I wonder if psychiatrists have a name for the mental condition whose victims are powerless to resist watching a favorite film when it comes on the TV movie channel. If there is such a recognized affliction, I have succumbed to it. I lead a very busy life, with enormous time pressures on my schedule. I serve on eight different community organizations, and my phone rings incessantly with calls from the White House, the Heritage Foundation, the Pentagon, one or two United Nations committees and the Dr. Phil and Jerry Springer shows. I have almost no time to call my own, but I dont complain, because of the satisfaction I derive from serving humankind as a beacon of wisdom and learning. Despite the need to ration my time like John D. Rockefeller handing out dimes to beggars, I am infected with an inability to switch off the TV set when I accidentally run across an old movie that captured my attention and love years ago, even as far back as the Spanish-American War when the film industry was just getting on its feet. Three days ago I was about to leave my home to catch a plane for Singapore and a conference on the meaning of the expression tsong ruk fui in newly-discovered Buddhist writings from the 5th Century B.C. As the taxi outside my door tooted its horn at me, I noticed that my local movie channel was broadcasting The Godfather for the next four hours. I have watched The Godfather roughly 75 times in the past 40 years. I have memorized most of the dialogue, including Marlon Brandos most galvanizing grunts. The movie has no surprises for me. And yet I cant turn it off, once it appears on my TV screen. Once again my God-given volition vanished, and I sank helplessly into my easy chair until the movie finished. I got up only to toss another packet of extra-butter popcorn into my microwave. Soon my airport taxi drove off without me, and I realized that I will surely be kicked off the invitation list for all future Buddhist scripture conferences. But I dont care. The Godfather must be obeyed. This morning, a similar attack on my sensibilities occurred. I was all set to scrub some stains off my living room carpet, to prepare for my hosting a gathering of fellow grammar Nazis who meet once a month to plan peaceful, yet forceful, vigilante assaults on writers, TV news readers and political figures who abuse the English language. As I prepared to mix a bucket of hot water with Oxycontin oops, Oxyclean I glanced at my TV set. There on the movie channel was the beginning of The Red Dragon, based on the chilling novel by Thomas Harris, and starring the brilliant Anthony Hopkins as the demented Dr. Hannibal The Cannibal Lecter. Once again I was mesmerized and stripped of my willpower. Need I tell you the rest? My carpet stains were forgotten, as were several other important items on my to-do list. Tonight as I write this I am filled with self-loathing, wondering what I must do to outwit my obsession to watch beloved old movies. I have become afraid to turn on my TV set, for fear of encountering re-runs of My Fair Lady, The Music Man or Young Frankenstein at the very moment that I receive a conference phone call from the White House situation room. If I were given a reserved seat on the last rocket to heaven and had only 20 minutes to boarding time just as a re-run of Heaven Can Wait came on the movie channel, Im not sure what my decision would be. I live in hope that someone will form a self-help therapy organization, perhaps titled Film Freaks Anonymous, that can help weak-willed persons like me to overcome our addiction. Or perhaps there really arent that many fellow sufferers out there, whose selfcontrol vanishes at the sound and sight of the MGM lion announcing the start of another immortal 1954 Oscar-winning blockbuster. After all, most Americans are not addicts. Because our ideal citizen is a Presbyterian Rotarian, Im certain all will be well. (Full disclosure: The stuff I wrote in the second paragraph, above, is pure fiction. I am actually a near-recluse living in obscure contentment on the fringes of society. I just thought Id jazz up this column in an innocent attempt to keep you reading. Please forgive me if my fraudulence caused you to look for my name on the recent list of Nobel Prize recipients.) Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net.The founts of wisdom on the Affordable Care Act spent the past year anguishing over whether young invincibles young adults with low medical costs and no health coverage would buy policies under the act. If young adults instead chose to pay the $95 fine, experts predicted, Obamacare would falter. Since the Oct. 1 rollout, however, Im hearing from a different group healthy middle-aged, middle-class adults whose individual policies lapse at years end. They qualify for comparable coverage through an Affordable Care Act exchange. Theres just one catch: Their premiums are going up a lot. For some, they may double. Obamacares first big headache in California isnt the young invincibles; its the mature vulnerables. Some tell me they didnt expect to see $2,500 in premium savings promised for a typical family by candidate Obama. They knew that providing care for those with pre-existing conditions would drive up costs. Ditto the extra benefits. But they didnt know that theyd carry the burden because they earn more than 400 percent of the poverty rate $45,960 for a single adult, $94,200 for a family of four and hence do not qualify for federal subsidies. How representative are these jacked-up insureds? Providers arent talking, and state officials say they dont know. Probably these readers represent a very small but very vocal minority. They feel betrayed, and many of them were staunch Obama voters who feel doubly betrayed because they have to pay much higher premiums that go to not a singlepayer model but the vaults of private insurers. These over-squeezed, middle-aged consumers are having discussions rarely anticipated by the experts. Who knew the real rub might lie with a 60-something San Francisco couple who dont want to pay $13,000 for a bare-bones plan? Like other readers, the wife of that couple tells me she is considering dropping family health coverage. Maybe shell cut the cord, or maybe shes just talking and, in the end, shell put up because she doesnt want to risk hard-earned assets. The couple also are considering not dipping into the husbands individual retirement account hes retired so that they can earn less and qualify for subsidies. An Alamo, Calif., father who earns $95,000 tells me the platinum plan he likes for his family of four costs $2,500 per month. But if he made $94,000 a year, subsidies would reduce his premiums to $1,500. That last lousy $1,000 of income will cost me $11,532! He tells me he wont try to game the system by earning less, but how many other fathers will think otherwise when they can pay less by succeeding less? And how many healthy families will decide to opt out and bank the difference? Oregon health care consultant Tim Breaux wrote me that for healthy families, its a smart choice. I dont think thats a responsible choice especially if you have assets. But thats what you get when the president promises something for nothing. The higher Obamacare premiums are the less likely healthy adults will be to enroll. That means more chumps and people with health problems will sign on, and theyll drive costs even higher. Its the classic insurance death spiral.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaun ders@sfchronicle.com.By 4 p.m. on the first day of Floridas new law banning texting while driving, one person in my neighborhood proved you can still take to the streets and text on a bicycle. I checked Florida Statutes and that is not against the law. The bicycle-riding texter appeared skilled in texting while bicycling and comfortable doing so. Her left hand steadied the handlebar, the thumb of the right hand moved across the face of the phone. She clearly had BNS (bent neck syndrome). A closer look, as we slowly passed by her, revealed that she was wearing headphones, too. She probably didnt hear us at all. She made me nervous. She was definitely distracted a risk to herself and the rest of us sharing the street with her. Should texting while bicycling be banned, too? A search of the World Wide Web answered my second question, Does any city ban texting while bicycling? The Chicago Tribune reported on October 5, 2011, that the Chicago City Council adopted such an ordinance the night before. The Tribune also said: Fines will start at $20 for a first offense and go up to $100 for a third or subsequent violation. If an accident is involved, the fine could shoot up to $500. Tough fines for bicycle riders for sure. In fact, they are tougher than the fines for Floridas new texting ban on drivers. First, the officer has to see the person breaking another law with its own set of fines before he issues a ticket for texting while driving. While the fine for the primary offense could break someones bank, the texting ban fine is $30 for the first offense and $60 for the second and subsequent offenses, plus three points on your drivers license. Points against your driving record though can cause your insurance to go up, too. Bicycles are all over my downtown, on the main highways and especially on State Road A1A to the South Beaches and the back roads of western St. Johns County. Bicycle rentals are popular in Tourist Mecca St. Augustine where narrow streets are fun to explore but not car-friendly. The expense of cars in big cities has put more bicycles on urban streets, too. Who says riders cant be distracted like drivers are? Maybe, it is time for the texting ban to apply to bicycle riders, too.Margo C.

Debra Saunders Margo Pope Time for a ban on texting while riding a bicycle Other viewsMiami Herald, Oct. 9Locked out of federal treasuresAmong the many casualties of the federal government shutdown are the nations 401 national parks, the people who work in them, the gateway communities that benefit from their existence and the millions of visitors left standing outside their locked gates. The financial repercussions are deep. In the Florida Keys, fishing guides are locked out of some of the best catch areas in Biscayne and Florida Bays. Forget about the big Columbus Day weekend festivities at Biscayne National Park. The park is closed and visitors are warned to stay away. The shutdown is depriving the public of many other vital services for example, the operations of the National Institutes of Health. The House has passed a few bills to fund some of these programs as recalcitrant members of Congress awaken to the horrible consequences of the shutdown, but thats no solution. The only way to provide relief is to reopen the government. All of it.Pensacola News-Journal, Oct.11Insurance reform will harm Floridians The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act, unnecessarily harms Floridians and poses a serious threat to our businesses, communities and our economy. While the intent of the act to stabilize the National Flood Insurance Program may appear practical, it in fact burdens Floridians with the lions share of the programs financial responsibility, which is simply unfair and unreasonable. Second only to Alaska in terms of shoreline, Florida has 37 percent of the nations flood insurance policies. Floridas homeowners, however, have supported the NFIP with more than $16 billion in payments during the past three decades, claiming only $3.7 billion during the same timeframe. Now, Floridians face insurance rate increases that are simply unaffordable. As our economy and real estate market begins to recover, now is not the time to create massive hikes for potential real estate buyers, businesses and home owners.Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Oct. 13Stolen ones: Our communities dark secretIt is hard to ascertain exactly how many children and young women are entrapped in prostitution. But experts believe that at least 100,000 U.S. teenagers are prostitutes, against their will, and three times that many are at risk. Helping these girls coerced into the sex trade is difficult and complex. Research shows that an overwhelming percentage of them were sexually abused as children; that abuse often leads the victims to run away from home or drives them toward substance abuse. They often develop bonds with their pimps, despite the abuse they suffer; those so-called trauma bonds make it difficult to protect, isolate and stabilize victims for their own good. Our region and state lack secure shelters, for both shortand longterm protection and rehabilitation of victims children and young women alike. This undermines the efforts of advocates to provide even modest help to those who seek to break the shackles of modern-day slavery.The higher Obamacare premiums are the less likely healthy adults will be to enroll. That means more chumps and people with health problems will sign on, and theyll drive costs even higher. Tampa Bay Newspapers: All rights reserved www.tbnweekly.com

Cleared Artist applies her talents to fight against childhood cancer By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR Penrhym Penny Young of Belleair can remember the pain of losing her son Joey to leukemia back in 1971 as though it were yesterday. Young is determined to do what she can so others wont have to experience what she did back then. She is spearheading Paintings for a Cause, an auction and fundraiser, which will be held at the Belleair Country Club Tuesday, Oct. 29, 6:30 p.m. Youngs memory of having her son diagnosed, and his battle to the end, just wont fade. After a routine checkup our doctor noticed Joeys spleen was swollen and together with some other questionable things, he determined that it was leukemia. He actually came to my house in Clearwater at the time, and broke to news to us, she said. Right away we made plans to go to St. Judes Hospital in Memphis. I ended up staying there for eight weeks. The whole purpose was to get him into remission right away, which we did. But the testing and treatments continued, and Young said it wasnt easy. Our trips were pretty grueling. There was bone marrow testing and whatever new drugs they would try on him, she said. That was the toughest part. I developed a real strength that came from this. It was important to learn everything about the disease and keep him happy. Between the year Joey was diagnosed, 1969, and his death in 1971, Young said her son lived a fairly normal life. Joey was very much a trooper, she said. We treated him like any other child. He was a good swimmer and he loved to go to the beach and get involved in everything. He loved going to church and school and he had lots of friends. We just had to make sure that he didnt come in contact with anyone who had shingles or chicken pox because that would bring him out of remission immediately. Young is a painter so her role in the fundraiser is a natural. It is to support the work of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The executive director of the Foundation, Nancy our trials; we call it our Sunshine Project. Last year we were able to give $750,000 to the Sunshine Project. This year we hope to give $1 million. Crane said she is often amazed at the way the children handle the disease and the treatment. Children are good at it, she said. It is rough, it is rigorous and many times it is a very long treatment cycle for kids, but they seem to take it in stride. She said families are deeply affected when a child is diagnosed with cancer. The entire family is affected, not just the child. Parents, siblings, grandparents. People lose their jobs over it because somebody has to be with the child during all the treatments, she said. Paintings from a dozen local artists are being auctioned off and calendars will be for sale at $20 each at the Paintings for a Cause fundraiser. Cost of admission to the event is $75. The events main sponsor is DEX Imaging of Belleair. Other sponsors include The Thorn Collection, Coldwell Banker. More information can be found at www.fastercure.org. Young is more than familiar with the toll a child with cancer can have on the family. She said her family, unlike many others who have to deal with a cancerstricken child, managed to stay together. His Dad, Joe, who has since passed away, was very supportive. We were together the whole time and he was very compassionate. We went to Memphis together often, she said. Joeys sister Heather, who was a year and a half older, was a trooper as well. She knew when he was going for treatment and helped him tremendously. Keeping the faith and making every day count was my philosophy. We have a big family and he may have experienced more love in his short life than many children have in a lifetime. The fight for a cure continues and until a cure is found many parents are going to have to deal with childhood cancer. Young said she would be happy to help Help libraries, invest in the futureWhen I was 12, the only place I knew I could escape to was my local library. This was before the days of teen sections, kids play sessions and computers. One day, I was forced along with everyone else that was under 18 and alone in the library to listen to a man talk. Turns out, this was the day that would change my life. My friend had died that day shot in the chest. From my two-step front porch a block away, I could see the dark red spot where he was killed. The police found him with the car running, all of the pizzas in the back seat, two pockets full of money, a cellphone and dead. The only reason he was killed was because it was fun. My mother had a terminal illness, and the doctors said she might be gone in a year or five. My moms boyfriend broke things, screamed at us, hit us and caused fights that went on for hours and hours. I listened to my mom yell for him to stop, but its like he didnt hear her. Thursday through Sunday, I spent my evenings at a neighbors until the porch light at my own house went on. That was the signal that her boyfriend had gone to bed, and I could go home. As I lay in my bed, listening for him to wake up and trying to sleep, I counted the gunshots. The only peace that existed in my house or neighborhood was when no one was there. But going to the library was like going to a foreign land. Inside, silence was mandatory and I welcomed it. When you are around yelling, shooting, banging, roaring and slamming all the time, silence is amazing! The library became my sanctuary and my haven. It was where all my questions about life and the world were answered, and where many adventures were waiting for me through the research as I strove for knowledge and understanding. These books, manuals, and volumes reached out to me to help me, inspire me, motivate me and direct me. I dont know who the man was who spoke on the day my friend was shot. He explained how we all have choices in life. We can choose to be like everyone else, or we can choose to be our own self. We can choose violence, or we can choose nonviolence and acceptance and peace. He explained that we could be whoever we want to be. We just have to decide to do it. He showed us how violence solves nothing, and the world is not as violent as we think it is. When that man stopped talking, I was a changed person. This story happened many years ago, but the situations havent changed for many kids. The library is still a safe place, a haven of quiet, and a place where they can take a vacation from the violence and anger of their normal life. Back in the s, when this story began, libraries were given a lot more money. Since then, I have watched the library budget get cut more and more each year. Ive watched the library staff accept lower and lower wages for doing the things they love: helping people find knowledge as the caretakers of this sanctuary for so many young people. So what can you do its not like you have the time or money to help, right? Wrong! Helping the library is a lot easier than you know. All libraries have a store run by the friends of the library association. This store sells donated books for a very cheap price and all of the money goes directly to library services such as the kids and teens programs. To help, you can collect all of the books you arent using and ask others to donate their books. You can start a book drive in your community, your neighborhood, and church or even in your place of business. Each book you donate will help the library. Donations of time and money help as well. During that hour you spend flipping channels, you could be volunteering at your local library: stacking, collecting or simply reading to kids. You can become the change you want to see. Kids and teens see you will see that you not only care about the library, but you also care about them. Every penny you donate, every book you drop off and every minute you volunteer to your local library, you are helping change the youth of the world. You are teaching a young inventor that they have the ability to use their mind in amazing ways. You are showing a young entrepreneur that donating time and money is a great idea. Or, you could be helping hire a speaker who will inspire teens, perhaps prompting one of them to write a column like this in hopes of changing the world.Chad Herman, a Largo resident, is a motivational speaker dedicated to inspiring his audiences toward social change, ending violence and affirming others ability to create a better future.

We have been active for the past 22 years and we must find new therapies; we must find a cure, she said. Were a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancers. Crane said childhood cancer is different from adult cancer and often people are unaware of the differences. People have to understand that funding for cancer is not funding for all cancers. Childhood and adult cancers are different, Crane said. She said the drive now is to find less toxic therapies for children who are battling cancer. In years past adult cancer drugs have been used on children. They are very harsh and very rough, she said. We have to find less toxic drugs with fewer side effects for children. The Pediatric Cancer Foundation is now funding for phase one trials in hospitals across the country. That means that new drugs or combinations of drugs will soon be tested for use in children. There are not a lot of drugs out there. Recently a 16-year-old young woman relapsed for the fourth time; there isnt anything else for her. That is devastating and it is not right, said Crane. We think there is a light at the end of the tunnel, she said. I ask doctors all the time whether we will ever find a cure and they always say yes. It will take a lot of money for that. We run our own trials with the hospitals. They are Belleair artist Penny Young is helping a young art student learn to paint. Inspiring ChangeChad Herman anyone who asks and knows what she would tell them. My approach would be not to try to look too far into the future, she said. Dont surmise what is to come, live in the moment and take each day and make it a happy day for the child. The child can feel what the mother and father are going through. You have to try not to show your fear. I went from fear to courage during that time and I would want to instill that in every parent. That courage is what carries you through. 100 Women Who Care to meet Nov. 19PINELLAS PARK The 100 Women Who Care, a group uniting Pinellas County women to make a collective monetary impact on community charities, will meet Tuesday, Nov. 19, 7 to 8 p.m., with a social time at 6:30 p.m., at Ready for Life, 4000 Gateway Centre Blvd., Suite 200, Pinellas Park. Patterned after a similar group in Michigan, this concept has been very effective in other communities around the United States. The local group seeks to encourage 100 women or more to attend four meetings a year and pledge $100 per meeting, totaling $400 for the year. At each meeting, any member wishing to request donations for a local charity or nonprofit will place her name into a basket. Three names will be drawn from the basket. These three members will have the opportunity to present a five-minute explanation of the local organization they nominated. After an opportunity for questions, members vote for one of the three charities. Each of the participating women then writes a check directly to the winning organization. It is powerful, simple and can make a tremendous impact on local charities and neighbors in need. So far, the organization has donated to Community Action Stops Abuse or CASA, Ready for Life and Girls Inc. of Pinellas. For information, call Julie Webster at 374-4854 or Brenda George at 515-1868.

The storms developed so quickly that they caught many boaters off guard and unprepared. The U.S. Coast Guard Station in St. Petersburg referred to it as Armageddon Weekend because so many boaters requested emergency assistance from the Coast Guard as well as Tampa Police Marine Units, Tampa Fire Rescue, St. Petersburg Fire Rescue, Eckerd College Search and Rescue, Florida Wildlife Enforcement Unit, and Tampa Police Departments Aviation Unit. Fortunately, no one was killed or seriously injured, but that is often not the case. Rapid changes in weather conditions are potentially dangerous for any boating trip, so you should always hope for the best but prepare for the worst even if the weather appears perfect for boating. Following are some things every boater should keep in mind, especially with our frequent thunderstorms here in Florida. 1. Know before you go Always check the weather before leaving the dock and continue to monitor it throughout the day. To be a safe boater, you must understand the terminology and what it means. If, for example, a weather report says that the average waves are 2to 4-feet, what that really means is that 65-70 percent of the waves are that high and other ones may be significantly larger. On average, about 15 percent of waves will equal or exceed the predicted wave height. The highest 10 percent of waves could be 25-30 percent higher than the predicted wave height. And on occasion (about one per hour) one can expect to see a wave nearly twice the predicted wave height. In addition there are the often feared rogue waves that exceed twice the highest predicted wave. Before you depart for your day on the water, be aware of what the boat you will be on can handle. If the boat can handle 4 feet waves, but have trouble with 8 footers, then 4 to 6 foot waves will mean you will face some 8-foot waves and you need to plan your journey accordingly. 2. Take a few minutes to prepare and file a float plan. Filing a float plan only means that you will leave certain information with someone who knows if you are overdue or suspects you may be in trouble. The U.S. Coast Guard provides a simple form that you can download from this website: www.floatplancentral.org/down load/USCGFloatPlan.pdf. Put your life preservers on. The U.S. Coast Guard recommends you wear a life jacket at all times you are on your dock and on a boat. Dont be macho the sea contains plenty of bodies of people who failed to respect its awesome force. Prepare your emergency gear. Have your flares, two way radio charged, turned on, and set to Channel 16 for emergency hailing, and emergency beacons, PLB, ELT or EPIRB, (tracking transmitters that aid in the detection and location of boats and people in distress via international satellite systems). No vessel traveling offshore should ever be without an emergency beacon of some type it simply isnt worth the risk. Close any topside openings and make sure bilges are on, or can be on and operational. See and be seen; Listen and be heard (lights on, sound signals operational and ready) Secure loose gear on the deck, including loose lines that can cause life-threatening entanglements. Update position. Are you off of Egmont or Sarasota or Tarpon Springs? Write it down if you can in case your electronics fail. Look for shelter and attempt to get to a safe harbor immediately but not at the expense of safety. In rough seas, you should cross the waves at a 45-degree angle, and dont race over waves surf them. Adjust your speed as necessary. Find the right balance between being bounced around and maintaining control. Use speed cautiously but maintain control and forward motion. Do not panic. 3. Arrive alive. Dont go out in weather that you think may be close to your limits or those of your crew and boat. Make sure your boat has all its safety equipment and it is working properly. Your local Coast Guard Auxiliary can arrange a free vessel safety check, so you know you have the right gear. Get in the habit of filing a float plan with a relative, a neighbor, or another responsible individual. Stick to your float plan and call the person ashore if there are changes. 4. Take a boating safety course. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary offers boating safety courses that will assist you in learning how to deal with emergencies on the water, and boating safety in general. For more information or to register for the course nearest you please send an email to foglejcgaux@tampabay.rr.com or call 727-898-1324 and you will be advised of the nearest Boating Skills and Seamanship Course in your area.Loren D.

This monthly meeting of all available personnel is for the purpose of sharing new information and the presentation of awards to both military and civilian personnel assigned to the Sector headquarters. Miller and Davis were cited by Rear Admiral John H. Korn, the commander of Coast Guard District 7, for their extraordinary efforts during the past year in supporting the Coast Guard Ready For Operations program. Korn thanked them for their unselfish efforts in greatly helping to reduce the time for these annual top-to-bottom inspections from a full week by two inspectors down to a matter of a few days. Ready for Operations inspectors evaluate the unit training program, administer written tests, evaluate equipment condition and documentation, evaluate the boat and crews for readiness and safety according to the appropriate Coast Guard regulations and manuals, conduct underway drills, review the physical fitness of all boat members and assists the unit in preparation for the Standardization Team assessments. Coast Guard District 7 is responsible for Coast Guard air and sea operations covering the Southeast United States with more than 15,000 miles of shoreline from South Carolina, Georgia and Florida to the Caribbean Basin, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Near perfect weather conditions over the last several days has the bait firmly settled into our area. With the water temperature just over 80 degrees were not quite where we need to be to have the fishing just explode, but its only a matter of a few days. Areas of bait, birds and hard-bottom are what you want to look for when scouting for kingfish. Traditional top-spots would be the many artificial reefs that lie anywhere from 3 to 12 miles offshore, the channel markers along the shipping channel just west of Egmont Key, and all along the beach if Spanish mackerel can be seen working schools of bait close to shore. Rig your live baits on stinger rigs, place them out behind the boat and troll at a very slow speed, often bumping the engines in and out of gear to keep those baits looking natural behind the boat. Best live baits for trolling include; blue runners, threadfin herring, and cigar minnows. When the tide is running real good anchoring and chumming can bring the fish right to you. Rig your baits on those same stinger rigs and attach a small balloon 8 to 10 feet above your bait. This helps you monitor were your baits are at and allows you to fish multiple baits. Next and most importantly is to constantly chum. Cut small pieces of threadfins off the side of the boat, meanwhile always have a fresh chum block out. Land based anglers can get into the action too. The Redington Long Pier and the Skyway piers attract plenty of kings each fall. Watch and observe how pier veterans fish for the kings and ask local tackle shops for any information that will help you better target this great gamefish.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

Several notable animal cruelty cases in Pinellas history will be presented, including Eldred/Pettyjohn. This case broke in October 2001 and is best known in Pinellas County as the llama case. It is considered the most horrendous animal cruelty case in recent history. SPCA Tampa Bay was founded as a nonprofit organization in 1940.

Its October, and Halloween is just around the corner what better way to celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year than with a helping of macabre musical merriment? The New Stage Theatre production of Little Shop of Horrors, the comic rock musical that pays tribute to classic B-movie horror flicks of the 1950s and s, is a rollicking good time. The show runs through Nov. 3 at New Stage Theatre, 11650 131st St. N., Largo. Performances are Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 3 p.m. Tickets are $25.88. Call 813-817-2585 or visit newstagelargo.org. New Stage Theatre, a new professional theater company located at Country Day World School in Largo, put a great deal of time and effort into making this production a success. Being a fledgling company, the theater space is small and a bit rough around the edges. Its a challenge to get comfy in the utilitarian chairs; the wooden floorboards beneath the audience seem to amplify the scuffling of shifting feet. All in all, it is still a bare bones affair exactly as it should be at this point. The fully functioning black box theater space was just built, its doors opening in March just in time to host a series of summer camp programs. Time will bring about material improvements. In the meantime, the real reason to visit New Stage Theatre is whats happening on its stage. For the second show in its 2013-14 season, New Stage chose Little Shop of Horrors by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman. For those unfamiliar with the musical, it was inspired by the cheesy 1960 Roger Corman black comedy The Little Shop of Horrors. Ashman adapted the story and Menken composed the music in the style of early 1960s Motown and doo-wop. The show features a number of recognizable songs, such as Suddenly, Seymour and Somewhere Thats Green. As for the story: Seymour, a lowly assistant in a floral shop on skid row, discovers an exotic plant. He names the plant after his coworker, a young woman with poor taste in men. Soon, Seymour realizes that his plant will only flourish if he provides it with a specific diet: Audrey II likes fresh blood. The New Stage Theatre production is directed by Chris Jackson.Theater reviewNew Stage delivers dreadfully delightful Little Shop of Horrors Photos courtesy of NEW STAGE THEATREFrom left, Alison Burns, Chris Crawford and John Lombardi star in New Stage Theatres production of Little Shop of Horrors, playing now through Nov. 3. Choreography is provided by Scott Daniel with musical direction by J.P. Kavanaugh. Daniel also handled costume design, while Ty Fickes oversaw scenic design and construction. Thaddeus Engle is tasked with lighting design. Miriam Rochford serves as stage manager. The casting is truly inspired. If New Stage Theatre continues to attract this kind of talent, it is sure to be an ongoing success. Chris Crawford portrays Seymour.

Crawford, the 2007 National Winner of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Irene Ryan Award for Acting, makes his debut at New Stage Theatre in the role. Crawford also earned the Mark Twain Award for Outstanding Comedic Performance. He worked with the Tony Award winning Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C., before moving to Tulsa, Okla., to found Playhouse Tulsa. He served there as artistic director until April 2013. Starring as Audrey is the talented Alison Burns. Burns appeared in New Stage Theatres season opener, Maybe Baby, Its You! She has a long list of Tampa Bay area credits, including roles in The Rocky Horror Picture Show and RENT at American Stage Theatre; and Bernard Alba, Comedy of Errors and Man of La Mancha at freeFall Theatre. As Audrey, Burns is charmingly sweet, convincingly nave and hopelessly hapless. She delivers a flawless rendition of Somewhere Thats Green that will have audience members wishing for their own Betty Crocker kitchens and well-manicured lawns enclosed by a fence of real chain link. John Lombardi takes on the role of Mr. Mushnick, Seymours boss and owner of the flower shop. Lombardi colors Mushnick with a tender shade of crotchetiness. Even when the shop starts making money, Lombardi maintains the characters chronic exasperation. Lombardi has appeared locally in productions staged by freeFall Theatre, American Stage Theatre and Show Palace Theatre. Calvin C. Jones provides the voice of Audrey II. His vocals are solid and melodious. Jones joined the singing group Men of Note at age 13, traveling the world for 25 years as one of the lead singers. He is currently a singer in Lets Get Loud at Busch Gardens, lead singer for SouthTown Fever and a sub for Rockapella. Jones may provide the voice, but someone has to make Audrey II come to life on stage. That job belongs to puppeteer Jerid Fox of Bluefox Arts and Entertainment. Scott Daniel plays Orin as well as a number of other characters. This isnt Daniels first experience with this show. He has been a part of four other productions of Little Shop of Horrors over the years, serving in every imaginable capacity, from director and choreographer to designer and, more than once, starring as Seymour. He has never played the part of Orin until now. Daniels Orin is riotously over the top. He breaks the fourth wall on several occasions, startling audience members and scoring big laughs. It is memorable performance, particularly for the front row. As outstanding as the rest of the cast is, there are three individuals who really make this production exceptional: Ericka Womack-Brown, Eileen B. Lymus Sanders and Whitney Drake. It is evident from the first few moments of the prologue, as the three 1960s street urchins begin singing Little Shop of Horrors, that New Stage Theatre was very selective in casting these three characters. The street urchins serve as a musical chorus to guide the story. These three talented women have powerful voices and, more importantly, they seamlessly shift back and forth between the background and the spotlight depending on the scene. Womack-Brown, who plays Crystal, is a singer, dancer and choreographer. Shes been seen in shows at Stageworks in Tampa, American Stage Theatre in St. Petersburg and Show Palace Theatre in Hudson. Womack-Brown also performs and choreographs for shows at Busch Gardens. Lymus Sanders, who plays Chiffon, also performs at Busch Gardens. Shes also appeared in the Blues Brothers R&B Revue at Universal Studios Orlando and in a number of regional theater productions, such as RESPECT A Musical Journey of Women at Jaeb Theatre. Drake, who plays Ronette, graduated from New World School of the Arts before taking the stage onboard Royal Caribbean International Cruise Line. The talented cast of New Stage Theatres wickedly fun Little Shop of Horrors proves this new theater company has a bright future in Pinellas.

Attendees also will enjoy plenty of workshops and demonstrations as well as filking. For those unfamiliar with this convention tradition, filk songs, as explained on Stone Hills Necronomicon website, are parodies of real songs, and originals, too, all with a fanish bent. Filk songs may be about a favorite book, film, television show, game, comic book or other science fiction or fantasy content. Filkers can participate in song sessions throughout the weekend. Convention organizers have selected dozens of panel topics for Necronomicon 2013 covering subjects as diverse as Firefly, how to write a mystery, costuming, social media and the author, game design, how to build a flying saucer and selfpublishing. For space buffs, Jeff Mitchell will host a presentation on whats new in astronomy and Ed Wysocki will host a panel discussion on exoplanets.Guest of honorBorn in Southern California, Christopher Paolini was raised in Montana. According to his website, the tall, jagged Beartooth Mountains that tower on one side of Paradise Valley provided Paolini with creative inspiration: Those mountains stirred his imagination and gave rise to the fantastic scenery depicted in his debut novel, Eragon. Eragon, initially self-published in 2001, was novel in Paolinis Inheritance Cycle, a young adult tetralogy of epic fantasy novels. He was only 15 when he wrote the first draft of the book. Paolini was homeschooled by his parents. In his spare time, he wrote short stories and poems, made frequent trips to the library, and read widely. After Paolinis family published Eragon, he traveled to promote it, visiting high schools and doing book signings. Author Carl Hiaasen is credited with discovering the book: The story goes, Hiaasen found his stepson reading Eragon one day. He was so impressed with it, he brought it to the attention of his publisher, Alfred A. Knopf. The publisher bought the rights and reprinted it 2003. The book suddenly found a worldwide audience. notated as not for sale. Organizers hope to return to the standard process next year, when we have some experience under our belt. The art show is split into two distinct areas: The Art Gallery Here, visitors will find 2,500 square feet of space in which artwork is exhibited and is available for purchase. The gallery features six-foot tables for 3-D work, as well as vertical panels for hanging space. There is a 10 percent commission charged on all artwork sold. The commission goes entirely to the conventions chosen charitable organization. The Print Shop This area, located inside the Art Gallery, is used to display multiple copies of fixed price prints and 3-D works. There is a 10 percent commission charged on all artwork sold here, with the commission benefiting the charity. Necronomicon offers ribbons for first, second and third place in color, black and white and 3-D, as well as an award for Best in Show. The attendees do judging and winners will be announced during the costume contest on Saturday night.Gaming at the conNecronomicon 2013 will present a wide variety of gaming opportunities for attendees.

The son of renowned actress and singer Veronica Castro and comedian Manual Valdes, Castro started as a child actor appearing alongside his mother on the telenovela El Derecho de Nacer. He branched out with the release of his first album, Agua Nueva, in 1992. His music career was launched a year later with the song, Nunca Voy a Olidarte (I Will Never Forget You) which became a No. 1 hit on the Hot Latin Tracks chart. Touring catapulted him into the limelight. Castro was nominated for Pop New Artist of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Awards (best of Latin music) in 1993 and Male Pop Artist of the Year in 1993. His biggest hit to date is Amor Eterno, a Hot Latin Tracks topper that cracked the Billboard Hot 100 climbing all the way to No. 78 despite its Spanish-language vocals. He continues to record romantic love ballads in Spanish. Earlier this year Castro released a live album, Primera Fila, that features well-known favorites and original songs.

So why doesnt anyone seem to be having any? And why is Sister Clarissa so concerned for his immortal soul when there are 1,300 other religions to choose from? Sometimes a play comes along that creates a special magic that allows us to see how all of us question that Normal family, long to kick down that white picket fence, and question perfect faith.Pinellas Park M o v i e s i n t h e P a r k Saturday, Oct. 19, at dusk, at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N., Pinellas Park.

Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, Carrie is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Lawrence D. Cohen and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.Escape PlanGenre: Thriller Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jim Caviezel, Curtis Cent Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent DOnofrio and Amy Ryan Director: Mikael Hafstrom Rated: R One of the worlds foremost authorities on structural security agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called The Tomb. Deceived and wrongly imprisoned, Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built.
