Bill Young dies at age 82Public funeral to be held at First Baptist Indian Rocks in Largo By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County lost a powerful ally Friday night. Charles William Bill Young, 82, of Indian Shores, the nations longest serving Republican member of the U.S. Congress, died Oct. 18, 2013. Young served more than 50 years in public office 10 in the Florida State Senate and 42 in the United States Congress. Youngs family was with him when he passed away about 6:50 p.m. at The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. Young died from complications related to a chronic injury, according to a statement from his family. The Congressman had been hospitalized for the past two weeks for treatment of chronic back pain, the result of injuries from a 1970 small plane crash. A public visitation was held Oct. 23, at Bill Young Armed Forces Reserve Center, 2801 Grand Ave. in Pinellas Park. A public funeral is Thursday, Oct. 24, 1 p.m., at First Baptist Indian Rocks, 12685 Ulmerton Road, Largo. A private burial will follow.Local reactionIn these days of social media and email, reaction to Youngs death came quick. Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch posted on his Facebook page shortly after the announcement of Youngs passing. Thoughts and prayers to Congressman C.W. Bill Young and his family. Congressman Young was a great leader and representative. Faith and family will carry you through, Welch wrote. Welch and his family are still recovering from the recent death of the commissioners father, Dr. David Welch, who died Sept. 16. Welch posted photos of himself and his father with Congressman Young. Bill Mischler, former longtime mayor of Pinellas Park also expressed his thoughts on Facebook. I didnt lose my Congressman this evening, Mischler wrote. I lost my friend and mentor. Congressman C.W. Bill Young passed away at 6:50 p.m. this evening. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Doctors Charles Friedman and Philip Bagenski opened Recovery Resources of Florida at the epicenter of an epidemic. The new outpatient substance abuse treatment facility is designed to diagnose and treat patients in a holistic and comprehensive way, reversing the countys worsening trend of addiction due to illicit drugs, alcohol and most recently prescription drugs. The substance abuse in Pinellas County is of epic proportions, Friedman said. The doctors come from different backgrounds. Bagenski has practiced internal medicine for more than a decade and, earlier in his career, had a personal struggle with addiction. Friedman has practiced pain management since opening his practice in 1992 and saw firsthand how the proliferation of pain clinics and pharmaceutical companies turned pain medicine into an addiction for many patients. Friedman and Bagenski met while training in addiction medicine though a unique, year-long fellowship at the University of Floridas College of Medicine. During that fellowship, they recognized a shared goal to return to Pinellas and have an impact on a community struggling with addiction. Theres a lot of tragedy and sadness that goes along with addiction, Bagenski said. A lot of people die. Kids end up in situations they should not be in. We hope to be able to change some of that.The new pain patientWhen Friedman began his practice, Pain Relief Centers, in 1992, pain medication had just become a sub-specialty. In the 1990s, it was controversial to prescribe opiates such as morphine and methadone, and doctors were hesitant to approve pain medications for long-term use for anything other than cancer pain, Friedman explained. But in the early 2000s, there was a significant increase in the use of opioids, which include semisynthetic drugs such as oxycodone. The medical community essentially turned the tables and decided to have a war on pain, Friedman said. This coincided with an explosion of pharmaceutical companies marketing long-acting pain medications to physicians, he added. Education on these medications was often limited to the information the drug representatives provided. We had a proliferation of doctors who were writing for pain medications that were not trained in pain management, resulting in a huge increase in deaths and inappropriate prescribing, Friedman said.

Some motorists received tickets from Largo police during the Halloween Open because their vehicles wheels rested on or across the sidewalk.Good strokesMPO focuses on multi-named roadways By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization is working on a plan to reduce or eliminate multi-named roadways. Residents and tourists often have difficulty traveling through the county due to roadways changing names. Many times these name changes occur when crossing municipal boundaries. With over 6 million tourists per year, it is confusing to give directions throughout Pinellas County with the inconsistent roadway naming, a Sept. 13 report from the MPOs Multi-named Roads Working Group said. The MPO discussed the findings of its subgroup at its Oct. 8 meeting. The past few years, the focus has been on Bryan Dairy Road, aka County Road 296. Motorists traveling through the county also will find that the C.R. 296 corridor changes to 102nd Avenue North and 118th Avenue. Most municipalities have favored the use of one name Bryan Dairy Road from Hamlin to the Interstate, but the city of St. Petersburg opposed using the name east of U.S. 19 (State Road 55). St. Petersburg prefers a unique name that shows the roads function as a connector from the north to the south and east. In 2012, the state legislature approved designating the section of 118th Avenue North (C.R. 298) east of U.S. 19 as the St. Pete Crosstown. The states action was not an official renaming of the corridor. An official name change would require approval of the county and the city of Pinellas Park, which has not occurred. Plans for the future call for the section of C.R. 296 east of U.S. 19 to be reconfigured significantly with the addition of the Roosevelt Connector, the S.R. 690 Corridor extension, and a potential exchange of roadways jurisdictions in the area.

Leader, October 24, 2013Please keep his wife Beverly and the rest of his family in your prayers at this time. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office posted Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Congressman C.W. Bill Young a great friend to our agency and our community for the past 53 years. Many posted condolences and photos throughout the weekend on their Facebook page and messages were frequent on Twitter. Young announced Oct. 9 that he would not be seeking re-election in 2014. Some news sources falsely reported Oct. 17 that he had died. His family released a statement shortly thereafter. Rep. C.W. Bill Youngs condition turned for the worse overnight and he is gravely ill, the statement said. His doctors say his prognosis is guarded. Calls to the Congressmans office the afternoon of Oct. 18 revealed nothing new on his condition. That night, his family announced that the Congressman had died.Pinellas Countys representativeYoung served 10 years in the Florida State Senate, 1960 to 1970. He served Floridas 13th Congressional District in the House of Representatives from 1971 to 2013. The 13th Congressional District is the only one in the state contained within one county. It includes all of Pinellas except for precincts in south St. Petersburg. Young has been a strong advocate for Pinellas County. Despite his poor health, he fought for Pinellas County as long as he could. Only a month ago, he testified during a Sept. 18 hearing of the U.S. Senates Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and Subcommittee on Economic Policy about the problems the implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012 was causing for his constituents. Young relayed the concern, outrage and fear of his constituents, many from Pinellas, about the devastating effect of premium increases. He urged the Senate to delay implementation. Young took on many local issues, including congestion on U.S. 19. He worked tirelessly to attract high-tech jobs to St. Petersburg. He took steps to improve health care for low-income children and families in this county. He was instrumental in the creation of Tampa Bay Water to ensure the areas drinking water supply. The reservoir bears his name. He has been a strong ally in getting funding for nourishment of the countys beaches.Long history of serviceYoungs tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives lasted through eight presidential administrations, including Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. At the time of his death, he was serving as Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, which he also chaired from 1995 to 1998 and 2005 to 2006. He was a member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and the Appropriations Subcommittee on the Legislative Branch. Young served as chair of the House Appropriations Committee from 1999 to 2005. The last time the United States had a balanced federal budget was when he was chair, according to his website. He was a strong advocate for biomedical research. He secured federal funding for increased immunizations for preschoolers, improved public health programs, and cures for Parkinsons and Alzheimers diseases. One of his hallmark achievements is creation of a national registry for bone marrow donors established in 1986. Congress named the program the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program in 2005. The Department of Defense also established the C.W. Bill Young Marrow Donor Center, which is one of 79 centers in the United States. The DODs program focuses on recruiting marrow donors from active military personnel. The C.W. Bill Young Marrow Donor Recruitment and Research Program has registered more than 6 million Americans, including more than 400,000 service members, as marrow donors. More than 9 million volunteer donors are currently registered. The registry has provided matches for life-saving transplants for more than 50,000 individuals. A nine-year veteran of the Army National Guard, 1948 to 1957, and six more as a reservist, Young is known for his work for veterans, including the expansion of the Bay Pines VA Medical Center in Seminole. Youngs website talks about his work to better the lives of veterans and active military personnel through his position on the Appropriations Committee. He met with enlisted personnel and officers to assess their needs and advocated improved base housing, better medical care, increased pay and better equipment. A number of photos on his website show the Congressman meeting with veterans, most recently those participating in Honor Flights from Pinellas County.Humble beginningsYoung was born in Harmarville, Pa., Dec. 16, 1930. He spent the first 14 years of his life in the small coal-mining town located in Harmar Township in Allegheny County, current population 1,200. The Allegheny River Lock and Dam No. 3, built in 1932, was named the C.W. Bill Young Lock and Dam in his honor. When Young was age 6, his father left the family after a flood washed away their home. At age 15, his family moved to Pinellas County to live with an uncle. Young later dropped out of St. Petersburg High School to take care of his sick mother. He joined the Army National Guard at age 18. At age 25, he began a career as an insurance salesman, eventually opening his own agency. He was elected to the Florida Senate in 1960. Young divorced his first wife in 1985, which whom he had three children, and married his current wife, Beverly the same year. They had two children together, Billy, and Patrick, and raised Beverlys son, Rob, from her first marriage. Florida Gov. Rick Scott released a statement on Youngs death. Ann and I join all Floridians as we mourn the passing of Rep. Bill Young. As Floridas longest serving member of Congress, Bill will be remembered as a true statesman and champion for the Tampa Bay area, Scott said. He served with eight U.S. Presidents throughout his career, always putting the families of Florida first, and working across the aisle to find solutions. His work to support military family, our veterans, and his own service with the Army National Guard and as a reservist, will leave a lasting legacy. Rep. Young will be missed by his constituents and our entire nation. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio also released a statement Friday night. Floridians have lost one of the greatest public servants weve ever had in our states history, Rubio said. For over a half century, Bill fought tirelessly for the Tampa Bay region and to strengthen Floridas role as a critical part of our national defense. Largely because of Bill Young, many of our nations brave men and women in uniform have called Florida home at some point in their careers, with many of them spending their golden retirement years here. Throughout Bills career, our military and veterans have had no greater champion than him. My thoughts and prayers are with Bills wife, Beverly, and their entire family.Filling the voidThe U.S. Constitution mandates that members of the House of Representatives be replaced only by an election held in the congressional district of the former representative. It is the responsibility of the state governor to call for a special election to replace the vacant House seat. As of Sunday night, Scott has made no announcement of an election. According to federal law, the office of the former representative remains open until a replacement is elected. Staff operates under the supervision of the Clerk of the House of Representatives. The congressional district no longer has a voting representation; however, constituents can continue to contact the interim office for assistance with a limited range of services.

Municipalities that favored a complete name change years ago may no longer be agreeable, the working group reported. The city of Pinellas Park would likely recommend a delay due to the possibility of changes creating financial issues for the affected properties, the report said. However, the working group did agree that the 102nd Avenue North segment would be the best place to start the renaming to Bryan Dairy Road. The renaming would take place on 102nd Avenue North from Hamlin Boulevard to Lake Seminole Bridge, just west of Starkey Road (C.R. 1). The area is mostly residential and most homes have addresses of interior roadways not 102nd Avenue North. This would initiate the consistent roadway naming effort and provide a test case on proceeding to the rest of this corridor and potentially to other corridors, the working groups report said. This would also provide the uniform name of Bryan Dairy Road for the corridor to the west of U.S. 19 (S.R. 55). Sarah Ward, interim MPO executive director, informed MPO members Oct. 8 of the working groups recommendations. She said the cities of Seminole and Pinellas Park supported changing the name to Bryan Dairy Road on 102nd Avenue North from west of Starkey Road to Hamlin Boulevard. The MPO unanimously accepted that recommendation. MPO members also unanimously agreed to hold off on additional renaming at this time. The MPO subgroup also reviewed a list of other multi-named roadways, including the Alt. U.S. 19 corridor, which has 14 different names, as well as C.R. 321 corridor, aka Clearwater-Largo Road, Ridge Road, 113th Street and Duhme Road; and C.R. 1 corridor, aka Omaha Street, Keene Road, Starkey Road and Park Street. These roadways traverse many jurisdictions and communities identify with the roadway names, the subgroup reported. The consensus was to ask municipalities to modify roadway signs to show the county or state road number along with the road name. One example was C.R. 611 East Lake Road. The road number would provide the consistency along the corridor while the name would still provide the community identity and not necessitate a road name change for property owners and residents, the working group reported. Due to the cost of installing new signs, the MPO recommends that new signs with the roadway number and name be used when existing signs are replaced. Costs for replacement of the small road signs is about $130 each, Ward said. MPO Chair Karen Seel said the idea for the dual designation on signs was the idea of the city of Seminoles Community Development Director Mark Ely. The idea is to phase in the sign changes over time, she said. We will ask the DOT to help fund state roads. Dunedin Vice-Mayor Julie Ward-Bujalski asked about changing the big signs, such as the ones over the interstate. Tourists look for the big signs, she said. Seel said the MPO did not have the authority to require municipalities to make sign changes. She pointed out that it would cost more to change big signs. The MPO would just encourage them to do this as they replace signs unless they want to do it sooner, she said. The MPO agreed unanimously to go forward to work with the municipalities on the plan. This has been one of my pet peeves for many years, Seel said. Im glad to put my peeve to rest.Daytime-only truck routeThe MPO also unanimously approved a request from the city of Clearwater to amend the countys truck route plan to add daytime-only truck routes to a section of Keene Road from Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard (State Road 60) to Sunset Point Road and Sunset Point Road from Keene Road to Hercules Avenue. MPO maintains a truck route plan that identifies roadways that heavy trucks are required to travel and any time-of-day restrictions. Municipalities and the county work in conjunction to maintain consistency across jurisdictional boundaries. Trucks are required to use designated truck routes up to the point closest to their destination. Amending the truck route to provide the new daytime-only route would provide more efficiency for city of Clearwater vehicles. The MPOs Technical Coordinating Committee, which recommended approval of the change, noted that the route would provide easier and more efficient circulation of all truck traffic in the area.

The suspects are using a phone spoofing technique to make it appear they are calling from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Detectives were first notified of the phone scam Tuesday, Oct. 15. The suspects are calling businesses and residents located in Pinellas County. According to detectives, three cases have been identified this week where local businesses and residences have been targeted by the phone scam. The suspects call and tell victims they are detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. They state the victim on the line has an outstanding warrant with the Department of Justice or the U.S. Department of Treasury and if their fines are not paid, they will be arrested. They request the money to be sent via prepaid credit cards, MoneyGram or Western Union. The suspects are using a spoofing technique to link their phone number to the Sheriffs Office nonemergency line. The spoofing technique allows the suspects to use a specialized computer program or phone app to fraudulently display the Sheriffs Office phone number on the victims caller ID. The suspects making the phone calls are male and appear to have foreign accents. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office will never call citizens requesting money over the telephone. Detectives advise citizens that they should not give personal information or account information over the phone unless you are initiating the phone call. Anyone with information on these scams or has become a victim to these scams are asked to call Sgt. Tim Kelly with the Economic Crimes Unit at 582-6200.Help needed to ID burglary suspectCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are seeking the publics help to locate a burglary suspect who stole from a home in Clearwater. According to detectives with the Burglary/Pawn Unit, the burglary occurred about 5:34 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, at a private residence in Clearwater. Detectives said that the suspect drove into the driveway of a private residence in a white regular cab truck. The suspect was observed exiting the truck and walking to the side garage door. It is unknown when the suspect left the residence or which direction she was headed. The suspect is a white female about 30 years old with brown hair and a medium build. She was last seen wearing a light blue T-shirt, black Capri-style pants and white shoes. Her hair was pulled back in a ponytail. Anyone with information on this burglary is asked to contact Detective C. Parkins of the Burglary/Pawn Unit at 582-6976 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppers ofpinellas.org.DUI checkpoint yields resultsCLEARWATER On Oct. 18, Clearwater police officers helped the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office with a DUI checkpoint in Palm Harbor. Of the 1,899 vehicles that passed the checkpoint, 376 were diverted in for evaluation. The results are as follows: 5 DUIs 2 driving with suspended or revoked license 1 possession of marijuana 1 providing false name to a law enforcement officer 1 no valid drivers license 1 fleeing and eluding a police officer 21 citationsPolice warn of scamCLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department warns the public that a man by the name of Richard Hamilton has been calling people saying he is from the Florida State Police in Clearwater. He tells them that there is a warrant for their arrest and can call Robert Bradley at the following number to rectify it: 202-241-5084. The caller ID shows either emergency only or 727-4646415, which is the main number for the Pinellas County Jail. This is a scam, and the number is being spoofed, Clearwater police say. When you call the number, they answer, stating they are the Federal Crimes Network and supposedly look up your information by your phone number. They go on to tell you they are IRS agents and have multiple federal charges against you, as well as you owing money for back tax returns. They give you the opportunity to make a payment using Green Dot money vouchers to settle the matter before it goes to court. They even go so far as to wait on the line while you get the Green Dot cards. If you have been exposed to anything like this, call Clearwater Police at 562-4424.Crossing guards soughtCLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department is searching for crossing guards to help children get to and from school safely. Crossing guards earn $10.41 an hour, and applicants must meet and maintain certain requirements for health and physical condition, which includes basic vision and hearing screenings. People must be at least 19 years old and have a valid drivers license and high school diploma or GED. Applications are accepted at the police department or municipal services building or online at www.myclearwater.com.

Operation Medicine Cabinet is an opportunity for citizens to discard unused or expired prescription medications. The event is part of a multi-agency effort aimed at addressing the problem of prescription drug abuse. An added bonus is the benefit to helping keep a clean environment. Citizens are invited to stop by any one of eight locations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to drop off their unused and expired prescription medications for safe collection and disposal no questions asked.

Please be aware that no bio-hazards or needles will be accepted and that the program is intended for private citizens of Pinellas County and not for commercial use. As a reminder, drop off sites are not located inside the stores but in the parking lot areas. Residents should look for a law enforcement presence at each of the selected drop-off sites. Also, be aware that the drop-off containers inside the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Central Station (Largo) and North District Station (Dunedin) will be temporarily closed during the countywide event. Operation Medicine Cabinet began in May 2009. The events are scheduled semi-annually. The OMC events, along with OMCs permanent drop-off containers within the community, have collected nearly 13,625 pounds of medications as of May of 2013.

The Supervisor of Elections Office has mailed 1,353 ballots to residents for the Nov. 5 election, which is being conducted by mail ballot only. Twenty-one ballots went out Sept. 20 to military personnel and residents overseas. Another 1,332 were mailed Oct. 16. As of Oct. 18, only one ballot had been returned. Belleair Beach City Manager Nancy Gonzalez took some of the mystery out of the legalese of the single referendum question that appears on the ballot. Residents are asked to vote yes or no to approve a charter amendment to appoint a special magistrate for board of adjustment variances as needed. The specific question reads, Shall section 6.03 of the Belleair Beach City Charter pertaining to the board of adjustment be amended by adding the appointment of a special magistrate by the city council to adjudicate requests for variances and other duties assigned by the city code to the board of adjustment under certain circumstances? Gonzalez explained that the special circumstance would only come into play during times that Board of Adjustment didnt have enough members at its monthly meeting to form a quorum. Belleair Beach has a seven-member board of adjustments that meets once a month. Applications for variances must be submitted to the city by noon on the second Tuesday of the month to be heard the next month. In the summer, it is often difficult to get a quorum when many of the members are away, Gonzalez said. Sometimes decisions get put off for three or four months. The city believes that having a special magistrate would solve the problem. We would use the special magistrate only when we couldnt get a quorum, Gonzalez said. Its not See BALLOTS, page 7A

Exp. 11-15-13 LB By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Tampa Bay Waters board of directors voted, 8-0, Oct. 21 to pay HDR Engineerings legal fees and costs, totaling about $21 million. The vote signals the end of litigation against HDR Engineering over the failed soil-cement liner in the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. The fees include costs for the trial, post-trial proceedings and the appeal. The costs will be paid through funds on hand and they will not directly affect water rates, according to a press release. While the outcome has fallen well short of our expectations and was not favorable for the agency, we firmly believe that trying to recoup the publics investment through legal action was the right decision, said Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala, board chair for Tampa Bay Water. We fought hard for what is right, and now we have to do what is in the best interest of the agency and the community to bring this chapter to a close. The United States Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion Sept. 23 agreeing with the judgment of the trial court in the case of the cracked soil-cement at the reservoir. Tampa Bay Water filed a federal lawsuit in December 2008 against HDR, as well as the contractor Barnard Construction and the construction manager CDG after cracks were discovered in the reservoirs interior soil-cement lining. Tampa Bay Waters board rejected a $30 million settlement offer from HDR after the boards advisers estimated the agency could get as much as $97 if they won the lawsuit. A federal jury ruled against Tampa Bay Water April 10, saying that HDR did not breach its standard of care when designing the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. The reservoir began operation in 2005 and provides water storage for Tampa Bay Waters regional system during the dry season, at which time water is pumped from the reservoir to the surface water treatment plant and then on to the customer. Cracks were found in the flat-plate, soil-cement, erosion-control layer lining of the reservoirs interior during an inspection in December 2006. After studies and data analysis of the problem by consulting engineers, Tampa Bay Waters system engineer said in a June 2009 report that the reservoir was safeBoard votes to end reservoir case Photo courtesy of TAMPA BAY WATERThis alligator doesnt mind the cracks in the cement lining of the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. Repairs to fix the problem should be complete by the end of 2014.and could be fixed. Tampa Bay Water spent the next two years looking for the right solution and the right firm to do the work. A $162 million contract was awarded to design-builder Kiewit Infrastructure South in August 2011 to renovate the reservoir and, upon staffs recommendation, increase its storage capacity by 3 billion gallons. Of the $162 million, officials said $42 million would be used to increase the storage capacity, and $120 million was allocated to the reservoirs renovation. About $6 billion was set aside for unforeseen costs. Work is scheduled to occur in two phases. Tampa Bay Water funded the $15 million needed for the first phase through existing bond proceeds, resulting in no rate impact for customers in the nearterm. The reservoir is currently closed as repairs continue. The facility expected to be fully operational by the end of 2014. This long-term fix ensures that the regions reservoir, a key component of our surface water system, is reliable and serving the region for the longterm, Tampa Bay Water said in the press release. Tampa Bay Water provides wholesale water to the public utility systems of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. More information about Tampa Bay Water is available at www.tampabaywater.org. fair to the applicant to have to wait. A quorum is four members, she said, and even if four members can make it to a meeting, decisions have to be unanimous. She said applicants are given the option to table the matter until more members can attend. But it is a hardship on the applicants and contractors trying to keep a schedule, she said. Variances are required anytime someone wants to build something that does not comply with the citys code. Residents apply for building permits from the county, but the county wont grant them if they see something in the plans that violate code. Residents have to go to the board of adjustment for permission via a variance. Gonzalez said variances could be needed because a project encroaches on setbacks or perhaps plans for a fence call for it to be higher than the code allows. She gave an example of a recent project where residents living in a two-story home wanted to build a staircase from the second story down to the garage. City code didnt allow them to build as planned, so they had to go before the board of adjustments. If resident says yes to the referendum, many problems would be solved, she said. We owe our residents the courtesy of being able to do this (grant variances) in a timely manner, she said.All mail ballot electionsThe Belleair Beach Nov. 5 election marks the fourth all-mail ballot election conducted by Pinellas Countys Election Office. All registered voters within the city should have received their ballot. Anyone who has not received a ballot should call the Elections Office at 464-vote (8683).

Ballots must be returned by mail or in person to a Supervisor of Elections Office by 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Expires Friday, Nov. 29, 2013 Pinellas County bed tax collections may hit new high mark By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys tourist development tax, aka the bed tax, is on point to break an all-time record. With August revenue totaled, the 5 percent tax collected on accommodations rented for less than six months for 2013 is up to $28.8 million. And theres one more month to go. Were right on track to break $30 million, D.T. Minich, Convention & Visitors Bureau director, reported at the Tourist Development Councils Oct. 16 meeting. If the $30 million mark is reached, Pinellas will become a high impact tax county one of only six in the state. Then well move into a whole new realm, he said. Qualifying as a high impact tax county would allow the TDC to collect a 6 percent tourist tax, providing more money to pay for the cost of maintaining a high quality destination. TDC tax funds the Tourist Development Council and Convention & Visitors Bureau. Currently 54 percent of the money collected goes to pay for marketing and operations, 19 percent for debt service, 9 percent for beach nourishment, 2 percent goes to the tax collector and 16 percent is set aside for reserves. Dennis Long with the county attorneys office explained that once the county qualifies it would remain a high impact tax county even if collections fall short of $30 million in subsequent years. You dont have to re-qualify each year, he said. $30 million is a big benchmark, Minich added.Tampa Bays beachesMary Delong with BVK Advertising reported on results of a survey done to find out the effect of Visit Tampa Bays new name on local tourism. St. Petersburg-Clearwater combined to make a better destination by a large margin, she said. The only exception was dining. All the most important attributes for a warmweather destination except for dining, (St. Petersburg-Clearwater) was considered best, she said. First time and potential visitors as well as returning visitors were asked a set of questions to determine perception between the two markets. Pinellas was the clear winner for its beaches with a brand personality that says fun, friendly, clean, family, fresh, vibrant and exciting, Delong said. Tampa didnt have a clear brand, but people identified with Busch Gardens, modern, urban and business-oriented. Tampa complemented Pinellas with its professional sports offerings, its city-urban vibe and the airport, she said. However, St. Petersburg-Clearwater was better in every way, according to those surveyed. The only misconception noted in the report is that visitors dont discern that Tampa Bays beaches arent located in Tampa, but instead are across the bridge in Pinellas County. Minich pointed to a couple of events that could boost the areas rating for dining, thanks to two $500,000 grants from BP and a partnership with the Home Shopping Network. The St. Pete & the Bay Area Festival of Food, Wine and the Arts, Friday through Sunday, Nov. 1517, will bring in 18 celebrity chefs for three days of culinary delights, featuring Gulf seafood. This is going to change the perception, he said. Another festival in Clearwater planned for 2014 will center on the same theme, making it clear that Pinellas does have fine dining to offer its visitors. David Downing, CVB assistant director, said BPs grants were very specific in their requirements. Events paid for with BP money has to have a seafood component, Minich said. They have to promote the quality of Gulf seafood, he said. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERD.T. Minich, Convention & Visitors Bureau director, tells the Tourist Development Council that the county is close to reaching the $30 million mark in bed tax collections Oct. 16. If the $30 million mark is reached, Pinellas will become a high impact tax county one of only six in the state. BriefsShop and Stroll setST. PETERSBURG Shop and Stroll, a free monthly event, will be offered Tuesday, Nov. 5, 9:30 a.m., at The Posh Tot, 7232 Central Ave. The Posh Tot, an infant and toddler boutique, and Baby Boot Camp, a mom and child fitness program, will come together to host Shop and Stroll on first Tuesdays.

The store boasts 13,000 square feet of gently used clothing, furniture, antiques and collectables. The store recently underwent a rebranding initiative to generate awareness and to create a more pleasant shopping environment. Initially, the rebranding was designed to bring awareness to the stores tie-in with the Homeless Emergency Project, located one block from the store. There was a definite disconnect between the public and our mission, said Jannie Dupre in a press release. Dupre is the HEP Thrift Store manager. I dont think our customers realized how much they were helping our community by shopping here, and we wanted to inform them. During the grand reopening event, the entire store will be marked 50 percent off, with no exceptions. The event also will include food and drink vendors throughout the day. To make donations or contact the HEP Thrift Store for more information, call 442-9041, ext. 330, or email ashleyc@ethep.org. In addition to the new look, the store has incorporated a new tagline throughout its materials and messaging: Changing lives with every purchase. It helps our customers to realize that were not just a typical thrift store, Jannie said. We have a mission to better our community by helping others. A welcome side-effect from the efforts to create more awareness about the HEP Thrift Store and the organizations mission, the space became a more pleasant shopping environment for store patrons. Signs now direct shoppers to different departments, a TV donated by a local Wal-Mart provides a rotating stream of information about HEP and the population it serves, and the store has an overall more organized and welcoming feel. HEP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing homeless individuals and families with housing, food, clothing and supportive services necessary to obtain self-sufficiency and improved quality of life.Delk Joins HomeBancBELLEAIR BLUFFS Tampa-based HomeBancorp Inc. recently named Jason Delk as vice president, SBA loan specialist for HomeBanc.

As the State of Florida officially observes Healthcare Quality Week Oct. 20-26, I recognize our dedicated VA health care professionals for the work they do to provide the very best health care to our nations heroes. At Bay Pines, our dedicated employees many of whom are veterans themselves come to work every day at our medical center located in Bay Pines and clinics across southwest Florida to deliver high quality health care that is personalized, proactive and patient-driven. They pride themselves for the work they do not only in their own profession, but also for the personalized attention they are able to provide to each Veteran, each family, while honoring service and empowering health. It is by no coincidence that our health care quality achievements are reflective of this unique and personalized model of health care delivery; a model recognized nationally as a best performer. Just this year, our organization celebrated several successful accreditations. Most notably, we were accredited by The Joint Commission in several program areas to include hospital, behavioral health, long-term care and home care. The Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a true symbol of health care quality. It is reflective of an organizations commitment to delivering safe, high quality health care. In addition, we received accreditation or certifications from the Long Term Care Institute, Food and Drug Administration, American Association of Blood Banks, Nuclear Regulatory Commission National Health Physics Program, and American College of Radiology. At Bay Pines, as we celebrate Healthcare Quality Week, I extend personal appreciation to our dedicated professionals as they continue to deliver the very best health care our nation has to offer. I would be remiss if I did not thank the men and women our nations heroes for whom we have the privilege and honor to serve. Thank you for entrusting us with your health care, and most importantly, thank you for your courage, sacrifice, and service to this great nation. You are the reason why we are all here and why we strive to provide the best care anywhere.Suzanne Klinker is director of Bay Pines VA Healthcare System.October brings coolness to the air and the desire to enjoy the outdoors. But while walking in Pinellas County can be fun and practical, it also can be dangerous. The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater area has been named the nations second most dangerous place for pedestrians (only the Orlando metro area is more dangerous). As a whole, Florida has the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the entire United States. Agencies and citizens groups at the local and state level are working to increase pedestrian safety by adding sidewalks and improving street lighting and signs. Those changes help, but changes you can make will help even more. Whether you walk for exercise, as a way to commute to work or school, or simply to marvel at the local wildlife, here are a few tips to help you stay alert and stay alive: Never assume that a car will stop for you You cannot be certain that a car will avoid you or stop for you if you are in the roadway. Maybe his or her cell phone distracts the driver. Maybe the driver is eating a cheeseburger with one hand and tuning the radio with the other. Maybe the driver simply cannot see you because of darkness, weather conditions, or your position in relation to the drivers car. You cannot avoid what you cannot see. A special note for our area: Tourists flock to Pinellas County beaches every year by the thousands. Because these drivers are generally unfamiliar with the local roads, some may end up focusing too much on directions, maps, or simply wondering are we there yet? to notice you. Obey traffic signals Crosswalks, walk and dont walk signals, and traffic lights exist for your safety. Always cross at crosswalks, and always wait for the walk signal. Never hurry across a road with the idea that you can beat the car heading toward you. The consequences can be deadly. Use the sidewalk Whenever possible, walk on sidewalks. You may want to plan ahead and choose the route that provides the most sidewalks. If you must walk on a road without a sidewalk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends that you walk facing oncoming traffic. That way, you will have a clear view of approaching cars. Be aware of your surroundings Distracted walking can be just as dangerous as distracted driving. Pay attention to your route, the cars around you, and all traffic signs. If you have ear buds or headphones on, take them off and look both ways before crossing the street. You cant hear a car if your music is blocking the sound around you. Although your mobile phone can be an asset in an emergency, it can be a dangerous distraction while you walk. If you are looking at your phone screen, you are not paying attention to your surroundings. Texting, Web surfing, or updating your Facebook status can wait until you arrive at your destination. Be extra careful walking at night Nights tend to be more dangerous for pedestrians because the darkness limits sight distance and clarity for walkers and drivers alike. Stay in well-lit areas whenever possible and wear light-colored reflective clothing. In particular, Halloween brings out more children walking in your neighborhoods. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than any other day of the year. Children old enough to walk alone should carry a light stick or flashlight to be more noticeable to drivers. Also, decorate costumes with reflective tape. Avoid alcohol and drugs Alcohol or drug use on the part of a driver or a pedestrian makes it more likely that the pedestrian will be seriously injured or killed in an accident. If you are intoxicated, your safest option is to use a designated driver, call a cab, or take public transportation. This could save your life and the lives of others. Charlene Cobb, community outreach coordinator for Sunstar Paramedics, has been a paramedic, training officer, education coordinator and community education specialist in her career. Sunstar has launched a new initiative designed to promote safety in Pinellas called Stay Alert, Stay Alive. Visit www.Sun starEMS.com/public-safety for more information.At last count, scientists have described 413 different ways to start the day. The great variation is due to the many circumstances people find themselves in, as well as the personalities of the people themselves. In this column I will list only a few of the methods people employ to get underway each morning. THE PERSON WITH A JOB. Many persons are employed, although today many others are not. If I am lucky enough to have a paying job and need the income, an effective way to get going each day is to picture myself living beneath a bridge with no food, no coffee, no TV and no cellphone. In other words, none of lifes essentials. This will be my fate if I dont stir my stumps. So I stir them. THE WOMAN. Unlike men, most women care how they look. Whether theyre 18 or 80, they usually disapprove of their appearance when they wake up each day. Their initial move is to go into the bathroom, peer into the mirror, and groan, Oh, God. Then they begin to transform their faces, their bodies and their clothing. The steps they often take to achieve this are too numerous to list. Whatever the result, these women deserve our applause and great credit for their efforts. THE PERSON WITH SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN. The opening activity of such a person (lets call her Lois) is screaming. She may begin softly, but as the little tykes fail to respond, Lois has no choice but to raise the volume and the threat level, If youre not up and moving in three minutes, Ill feed you castor oil. Here, take a sniff of the bottle! That often does the trick. CURSING THE KITCHEN. The first action of thousands of Americans, usually single men, is to stagger into the kitchen to make coffee. Upon viewing the disgusting wreckage from last nights TV or alcohol binge, the guy stands there and curses the dirty pots and pans, the dishware, the odors, himself, Jimmy Kimmel, his ex-wife, and anything else he can think of. This is not a good way to start the day. A better idea is to spend 10 minutes of cleanup duty the night before. THE ATTACKING WARRIOR. As you roll out of bed each day, do you often feel as if fate, circumstance and people are against you, determined to cause you misery and make you fail? Of course you do. We all do. The reason: we are indeed at war with life. The solution: we fight back. As our feet hit the floor, we assume the attitude of the warrior, the soldier, and the knight who will not be defeated. As the day wears on, we view every problem and opponent as an enemy to be slaughtered. This technique for starting the day can be stimulating and helpful. Of course, it also can get you fired or put in jail. THE PASSIVIST. This is the polar opposite to the attacking warrior. The passivists default attitude as he/she wakes up is Whatever. Let it happen. What me worry? Passivists dont exactly surrender to life; they just ignore it. They relax. They accept life and the universe in its entirety. They practice the philosophy of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick: It is what it is. MEDITATION. This ancient practice usually requires a person to sit quietly for two or 20 minutes, chant Ommm or Punxsutawney, and if possible stay awake. During this time the blood starts to circulate. Nighttime dreams fade. Yesterdays stock market quotes return. The lyrics to Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie enter your mind. If these things happen to you while you meditate, youre doing it wrong. You should start over. But at least youve got your day underway. Sort of. PRAYER. Even if youre not religious in the conventional sense, prayer is an excellent thing to do as each day begins. You can pray to whomever or whatever you wish God, fate, the universe, Ted Cruz, Buddha, Deepok Chopra, the spirit of your dead spaniel, or your IRS adjuster. I know at least one man (an avowed agnostic) whose morning prayer is Baby Jesus, stick with me. (He says he does this just in case.) Ive heard that the most effective prayers are those that ask for the petitioners mind and outlook to be altered, rather than for the world to be changed. TUNE IN TO MORNING TV TALKS SHOW. After 10 minutes of watching peppy, cheerful panelists chuckling and interrupting each other, youll either be bored silly or consumed with rage that such consummate rubbish is allowed to pollute Americas homes. But at least youll have begun your day.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey dautrey@tbnweekly.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli tbniandy@yahoo.com Advertising Director: Jay Rey jrey@tbnweekly.com Classied Advertising Manager: Wendy Edwards wedwards@tbnweekly.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond tgermond@tbnweekly.comProduction Manager: David Brown production@tbnweekly.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter webmaster@tbnweekly.com Beach Beacon: Bob McClure bmcclure@tbnweekly.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Tom Germond tgermond@tbnweekly.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl alundahl@tbnweekly.com Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond tgermond@tbnweekly.comLargo Leader: Juliana A.

Watch how fast they fall in line. For example, instead of cutting off school childrens meals, how about cutting off Congresss free meals, along with their thousands of aides? The cost of feeding one congressman would easily feed 25 to 50 children. Les Milewski SeminoleVote no on aquarium proposalEditor: Clearwater voters should be alert to a very serious flaw in the proposed long-term lease of our valuable City Hall property before our Nov. 5 referendum vote. We should note carefully that the $250,000 annual fee to be paid by the CMA has no inflation clause. Many of us are old enough to remember 60 years ago when a new sedan cost about $3,000 rather than $25,000, when gasoline sold for 29 cents a gallon rather than $3.25, and when a postage stamp cost 3 cents rather than 45 cents. Like it or not, inflation is a way of life, and we can only imagine how much the purchasing power of $250,000 will shrivel over the next 60 years. So, to avoid leaving an unfair legacy to future Clearwater citizens, I urge you to vote no on the referendum ballot. Bioll Schwob, ClearwaterKudos to Belleair policeEditorSeveral weeks ago, my wife and I drove to North Carolina. Several hours into the trip we stopped at a rest stop only to discover I had left the tailgate of the truck open and almost everything we had packed was gone. One of the missing items was a small suitcase containing my Apple laptop and a mini I-pad. After arriving in Charlotte, using the Find my Device app on my I-phone, I could see where these devices were located on the map. Obviously someone had found them because they were no longer along our route and they were still within a few miles of our home. After contacting the Belleair Police Dept., Officer Jeff Clark went to that location and managed to locate the specific individuals that had our suitcase. While their attitude was apparently one of finders keepers, Officer Clark was able to retrieve our suitcase along with the majority of its contents, including all my electronic devices. So thankyou to the Belleair Police Department, and especially to Officer Clark, who went way above the call of duty to retrieve our lost suitcase. We love having our own Police Department in Belleair.Landon Roach Belleair We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

Geared toward a teenage audience and their families, each episode visits and explores a diverse destination around the globe. The goal is to teach its viewers about each citys roots, history and heritage. Its an educational show intended for teens, but has a larger audience, DeMaio said. Older viewers can take away something from it as well. The idea was we didnt want to talk down to kids. Locales from the upcoming season include Louisville, New Orleans, Belize and even St. Petersburg. Weve been to a lot of really cool places, but it was really cool to film the show at home, DeMaio said. The St. Petersburg episode airs Jan. 11, 2014 and visit a variety of familiar locations including The Dali Museum, The Holocaust Museum, The St. Petersburg Museum of History, Fort De Soto Park, and the Ted Williams Museum at Tropicana Field. The show was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Single Camera Video this past June. While DeMaio and his business partner, Joe Dorsey, didnt win, DeMaio said simply being nominated for the award was enough. The pair traveled to Los Angeles for the awards ceremony and luncheon, and got to brush elbows with the creative minds behind popular soap operas, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and other giants of daytime TV. For our little show, it was kind of a big deal for us, DeMaio said. It was weird being part of it. It is extremely rare for an educational show with a small crew like ours to be recognized with a national Daytime Emmy award nomination, but our team endeavored to make it a reality, and we couldnt be more thrilled, said Dorsey in a press release. DeMaio graduated from Seminole High School in 1994 and went on to attend the University of Central Florida, where he majored in communications with a focus on radio and television. After graduation, he stayed in Orlando, doing some work for Skyline Teleproductions and Fox 35. He began focusing on freelance work in 2001 and eventually formed Red 5 Creative with Dorsey. For the past five years, hes worked as director of photography and an editor for Walt Disney World Creative Entertainment. Travel Thru History airs on both weekend days the current season on Saturdays and first season episodes on Sundays on the MeTV network. Visit metvnetwork.com/wherewatch.php for more information on where to view the show. For more information about the show, visit www.travelthruhistory.tv or www.facebook.com/travelthruhistory.

The challenge was a contest in which animal shelters across the nation competed to break their own adoption records for a grand prize of $100,000 throughout the months of June, July and August 2013, the HSP was able to adopt out a total of 852 animals, an increase of 316 from summer 2012, and finish the competition in 16th place overall. The HSP began the competition with a strong start, with 800 Tampa Bay residents visiting the facility during the challenges opening weekend as a result of the avid community interest, the shelter also reached its July 2012 adoption numbers within the first two weeks of the month, despite being closed for two days due to Tropical Storm Andrea. In addition to beating its overall adoption numbers, the HSP started a hosted adoption program at Petco Tarpon Springs, increased retail sales revenue through the Adoption Center by 502 percent summer 2013 over summer 2012 and also met its goal of increasing its community engagement statistics. HSP officials say the facility still has many animals waiting for a good home. The HSP also enlists the help of volunteers and accepts donations.

Between 2000 and 2006, retail sales of oxycodone increased 732 percent and sales of methadone increased 1,200 percent. From 1990 to 2001, the diagnosis of substance abuse rose from 628,000 to more than 2.4 million while emergency room visits for adverse reactions to controlled substances increased 152 percent. This is when we started to become very aware that our efforts to control pain with higher doses was becoming a huge problem, Friedman said. Especially in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Dade and Broward counties, more and more pain clinics were prescribing high doses of oxycodone and alprazolam, or Xanax. In 2009, death rates in Florida for prescription medication was four times higher than illicit drugs, making it the No. 1 cause of death after car crashes. The face of pain patients Friedman was seeing in his practice dramatically changed. They were younger, and their reasons for pain were more convoluted than the patients he had been seeing. We were the epicenter of inappropriate prescriptions, he said. It was at that point that I decided that I lacked enough education to be able to handle this change of environment and patients. Eight university medical centers across the country began offering an addiction medical fellowship in 2012. Friedman jumped at the chance.A personal struggle Bagenski came to the fellowship six months after Friedman. They met on Bagenskis first day working in detox unit. For Bagenski, the reasons for wanting specialized training came from his personal experiences with the damaging effects of addiction. Though he knew better as a practicing doctor, Bagenski turned to a habit of drinking amidst a pending divorce and family problems. The disease of addiction eventually involved cocaine. With the help of friends and family, Bagenski went into treatment in 2007 to sober up. When he returned to the practice of medicine, he was inspired to share his own experiences with those who were struggling as he had. I just felt like there was this area that I needed to explore, he said. It was ... why I had gone into medicine for in the first place, in a way that had a much deeper meaning to me now because of my own history. During the fellowship, Bagenski said he saw how addiction affected people from every walk of life, from movie stars, professional athletes and Fortune 500 company executives to mom and pop and grandma and little kids. Theres no difference in the devastation thats caused, he said. People can buy more time when they have money, but ultimately, the end result is the same: devastation, ruined relationships, ruined lives, death, destruction, horrific disease, illness. Its horrible.Comprehensive recoveryBagenski said treatment at Recovery Resources begins with getting a good history by collecting as much information on the patient as possible. Its this approach that allows the practice to provide more support than Bagenski said he could do in five-minute meetings as a family doctor. Patients who will be most successful with the outpatient services that Recovery Resources provides are those who can be accountable for their actions as the staff seeks to add better structure and coping skills to their lives. Ongoing success and ongoing recovery is directly proportional to the effort they put into the program, Bagenski said. Its a fragile time, early in the recovery. Its our goal to hang on to folks long enough to get them the recovery tools that they need. The doctors treat patients through detoxification, counseling, motivational interviews and cognitive behavioral therapy. They also are able to recognize patients who need a higher level of care and refer them accordingly. Patients at Recovery Resources benefit from Friedmans long experience in pain management as well as Bagenskis experience treating chronic diseases that are caused or exacerbated by longDr. Charles Friedman Dr. Philip Bagenski ADDICTION, from page 1AHealth 13A Starkey Parkies meet for first timeLARGO A new Parkinsons support group called the Starkey Parkies will meet for the first time Thursday, Nov. 7, 1:30 to 3 p.m., in the second floor caf at the Grand Villa, 750 Starkey Road in Largo Due to a growing need in Pinellas County for this type of group to support people with Parkinsons disease, their care partners and special friends, Marcy McCall has taken on this opportunity to facilitate the group. McCall has more than 15 years of experience working with Parkinsons disease, and now works as a patient advocate, educator and research writer for Parkinsons Research Foundation. McCall also co-authored the first edition of the book, One Hundred Questions and Answers about Parkinsons, with Dr. Abraham Lieberman. All ages are welcome to help establish group goals and enjoy new friends in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The location is handicap-accessible with good parking. For questions, contact McCall at 813-985-6874 or mccall.marcy@gmail.com.DOH-Pinellas offers help with obesity, oral healthAs part of its effort to achieve Public Health Accreditation, the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) is providing its residents with profiles of obesity and oral health in Pinellas. Other topics exploring the countys health will follow as part of accreditation. The first two areas profiled were selected because obesity and the lack of accessible dental care are priorities in Florida. Pinellas Countys health picture in obesity and dental health suggests that more work is needed to meet the states goal of becoming the healthiest state in the nation. For example, 2010 obesity figures show that 41.6 percent of Pinellas adults were overweight and 24 percent were obese. About 28 percent of middle-school students werent getting enough vigorous physical activity; the figure jumped to 37 percent for those in high school. Among adults, 60 percent did not eat the recommended fruit and vegetable servings and 22.4 percent were sedentary. The dental health profile shows a need for more dentists who accept Medicaid. Of the 1,667 licensed dentists in Pinellas, 25 accepted Medicaid. Only 6.7 percent of Medicaid-eligible adults received dental services in 2011. More than 4,800 Pinellas residents resorted to visiting the emergency room for treatment of dental conditions that preventive, regular dental care could have alleviated, but which Medicaid doesnt cover. The Oral Health and Healthy Weight profiles are posted at www.PinellasHealth.com, with more information and annotated data at www.pinellashealth.com/HlthProfileRpts.asp. Health news, eventsSupport group to meetLARGO A support group for people with lung disease and their loved ones will meet Thursday, Oct. 24, 3 to 4 p.m., at the Largo Community Center, 400 Alt. Keene Road. Attendees will learn to manage their lung disease, such as COPD, and learn skills that help improve their quality of life. The group provides support, education and socialization for those affected by lung disease and their loved ones. Topics include how the lungs work, understanding chronic lung disease, talking to a healthcare provider, tracking symptoms, understanding medications and treatments, exercise programs and emotional and social well-being. Different guest speakers address the group each month. The support group also will meet Thursday, Nov. 14 and Thursday, Dec. 5. Beginning in January, the group will meet second Thursdays, 3 to 4 p.m., at the center. For information, call JoAnn Pugh at 269-1282.Interventional Vascular Lab opensLARGO A new Interventional Vascular Lab recently opened at Largo Medical Center, 201 14th St. NW. In this lab, physicians can treat their patients who have vascular conditions ranging from diseases of the veins, arteries and lymph vessels to blood disorders that affect a persons circulation. Largo Medical Center continues to recognize the need for and implement the use of diagnostic techniques, using state-of-the art, leading-edge technology, said Anthony Degina in a press release. Degina is CEO of Largo Medical Center. Some of this labs incredible technology includes tools specifically developed for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease and for use in interventional procedures that are ancillary to the heart. Some of the areas most well-respected cardiologists, cardiovascular thoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, electrophysiologists and other specialists will be using this lab. A highlight of all the new high-tech imaging is that it includes a low dose radiation viewing system with 3-D capabilities, said Brenda Simpson, chief nursing officer at Largo Medical Center. It will minimize risks for our patients by giving surgeons access to the vascular system of veins, arteries and capillaries like never before. Largo Medical Center is a Joint Commission accredited, 425-bed statutory teaching hospital serving the community from two campuses.

They want to reverse the epidemic of abuse in Pinellas by helping patients toward abstinence instead of more drugs to treat their addiction. We see a need for more clinics, but clinics manned by doctors with the appropriate training, Friedman said. Theyve reached out to local drug courts, to offer their expertise in evaluating those struggling with addiction and in suggesting alternative treatments that dont involve medicines with an abuse or an addiction potential to them. Many people in the court system are prescribed the very same drugs that theyre addicted to, Bagenski said. For now, their goal is to treat one patient at a time and fight for the miracles that are possible in spite of the widespread tragedy. Itd be nice to have a clean county. We want to reach as many patients as we can, Friedman said. His colleague agreed.

On land, the weather changes leisurely; you have to pay attention. At sea, dolphins also transition leisurely. Again, you have to pay attention because some obvious clues are only obvious in retrospect. A huge gray dolphin ascended from the sea floor. Exhaling heavily as he cleared the surface, he created a small geyser of water and showered in it. A smaller dolphin rose next to him, breathing the silent breath of a new mother. Her teeny 6-weeks-old baby squirted up between them. Schnoz, Stick and her baby ambled through jade-colored waters between islands. When Sticks baby blurted to the surface, Schnoz surfaced with it simultaneously. Experienced adult dolphins do this for newborns. It gives newborns a rhythm to follow and perhaps a wave of water to ride like an invisible magic carpet. The big bulls dorsal fin was enormous compared to the teeny dorsal fin that surfaced in its shadow. Swimming with newborns is a rare pastime for bottlenose bulls. But Schnoz is a singular bull in many ways. He confirmed this clearly over the dozen times Capt. John Heidemann and I have seen him this year. What Schnoz did not clearly confirm were the many obvious clues he left. It took us all summer to see them. Finally, though, we discovered another of Schnoz idiosyncrasies. Maybe. Schnoz idiosyncrasy pertains to his massive dorsal fin. The dorsal fin is the fin that sticks out of the water when a dolphin surfaces to breathe. What does he do with his fin? The dolphin dorsal fin is a target for toothraking. Sometimes toothrakes also scrape the narrow front of the dorsal fin. More rarely the front of the fin is scraped but there are no other marks. In a watery world where dolphins avoid docks and other things that could scrape the front of the fin, the front of the fin is difficult to scrape. Thus I note every episode and wonder how they manage it. One recent September day, Schnoz zinged past like a Ping-Pong ball. I glimpsed the scrape on the front of his fin and wrote: leading edge wound from this spring is taking a long time to heal. It is as if there is a bulge of blubber pushed out from bottom of wound. Wound is still flesh colored. It will leave a big dent in his dorsal fin. Remembering that Schnoz had scrapes on the front of his fin last April, I added, This is an example of how long it can take to heal a dolphin appendage. Does it really take six months for a little scrape to heal? When I got home, I looked up that April date. A mystery was at hand. It was soon solved, which is why data are such fun! The punch line: Schnoz had four consecutive injuries to the front of his fin that looked like one wound that took 6 months to heal! Wound 1 appeared by April 2013. Squiggly little flesh-colored cuts looked like strands of vermicelli stuck on the fin. Two weeks later, the vermicelli had widened into fettuccine, forming fleshy cracks through the surrounding gray skin. A month later in May, the fleshy fettuccine had faded (healed) to light gray. Wound 2 soon appeared. By June 2013, Schnoz was toothraked again with a jagged notch on the front of his fin as well. Was it another spring battle of the bulls? By July, the notch was bigger, deeper and more jagged. Oddly, it also bulged with a bit of blubber the size of a wad of chewing gum. Sixty-five years ago, John Lilly demonstrated that dolphin blubber bulges into and seals any breach of the skin. Lilly did this by punching metal straws of various diameters into captive dolphins (ouch). Blubber bulging prevents bleeding at sea. This is good because bleeding at sea attracts the wrong company. It is very rare to see blubber bulging into Johns Pass dolphin wounds at sea. I wondered if the blubber we saw bulging out of Schnoz wound was related to his own machinations. Did he rub the scrape the way I rub a healing bruise? Like an assembly line, wound 3 appeared by August 2013. Though Schnoz scrape was still bulging with blubber, careful comparisons of photographic data showed that Schnoz had a new scrape right below the one he got in June. But this scrape was clean, as if from a knife. The June scrape was jagged, perhaps from serrated teeth. Wound 3 soon bulged with blubber, which lasted a whole month but also changed shape over time. It waxed, waned, and then doubled in size. A curious thread arose from it like a poised Lilliputian rocket. The changes made me wonder if Schnoz has been itching or rubbing his wound, or if his own activities has created the wound. Each of the scrapes on the front of Schnoz fin healed to a little bump of light gray. The line of tiny moguls from Schnoz previous wounds grew again in October when wound 4 appeared. This new one Photo by ANN WEAVERSchnoz surfaces with a scrape on the front of his dorsal fin, the third of four wounds this summer. Like the kid who skins her knee repeatedly all summer long, are its scrapes due to outside circumstances, the kids own habits, or a little of both? was just below the previous wound. Oh, Schnoz! What happens that the front of your fin keeps taking a hit? Is it in battle, like the guy who keeps getting a black eye? Are you a rare local dolphin who goes under docks but miscalculates and clips the front of your fin every other month? Your repeated skinned knee could be an idiosyncrasy. Or is it an eccentricity?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

End of some perfect fishing weatherFishing has been outstanding over the last week. Perfect weather and light seas allowed many to take advantage of early season kingfish and Spanish mackerel fishing as well as great bottom fishing for grouper and mangrove snapper. Hard bottom areas in 40to 50-foot are holding plenty of keeper grouper. When the conditions are right drift fishing can be more productive than anchoring, accounting for plenty of red grouper and the occasional gag. Keeping a flat-line out during the drift will pick up kingfish, some of which have been over 20 pounds and plenty of Spanish mackerel. Mangrove snapper have been bunched up on this full moon phase. Artificial reefs as well as big ledges are holding huge numbers of snapper. Chumming them with cut pilchards will bring them right behind the boat at times. Free-line or lightly weight one of the pieces youre chumming within a natural drag free presentation, and it wont take long to secure a limit of these scrappy fighters. Inshore, redfish action has been picking up as of late. Target morning low tides for best fishing; as the water finishes falling off your favorite flat right around sunrise so should the redfish. Target flats that have a distinct drop-off often indicated by a slightly shallower sand bar along the edge. The deep side of the sand bar will often be made up of sparse grass, perfect bottom for bouncing soft-plastic jigs. Darker colors will typically produce better as they more accurately represent the shrimp and crabs the redfish are used to seeing. Clear blue skies. Were going to see are first real cold front this week, and when all the clouds finally move out and high pressure builds back in on the backside of the front, the sky is often bright blue and completely cloudless. This might look pretty enough but can make for some tough fishing. Shallow water fish become very wary under these conditions and will often lay on the bottom motionless and wait for more favorable conditions. Slow down your presentation when casting artificial lures, or switch to cut-bait instead of live bait. This will give the fish a better opportunity to find your bait.

16A Schools Leader, October 24, 2013 082913 102413 102413 School notesPCSB launches website for extended learningPinellas County Schools recently launched Beyond the Classroom, an online initiative available to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week, that is aimed at providing extended learning programs and digital learning opportunities for all students. Beyond the Classroom is an online round-up of several free educational resources, including FCAT Explorer, ST Math and InSync Education that are all geared toward boosting student achievement. The exciting software programs included in this virtual world will challenge every student in the district, said Pinellas Schools Superintendent Michael A. Grego in a press release. Students who need that extra bit of support to reach grade level will be motivated and students who are ready to move beyond grade level will be challenged. The resources featured on the Beyond the Classroom site, accessible from the homepage of the districts website provide opportunities outside of the classroom for students to build their skills in various subjects, including reading, language arts, math, science and social studies. While these resources are aimed primarily at elementary students, the district plans to roll out additional educational resources for all grade levels in coming weeks. Included in this initiative is an opportunity specifically for students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. Connect for Success A Title I Digital Enterprise will provide economically disadvantaged students with equal access to technology that supports their learning outside of the classroom. In coming weeks, Pinellas County Schools plans through the Connect for Success initiative to distribute thousands of laptops to thirdand fourth-graders at all Title I elementary schools in keeping with its commitment to provide access to technology and opportunities to succeed for all students. Additional classes of third-graders will benefit from the initiative in subsequent years. Visit www.pcsb.org. CSB, Sheriffs Office partner for PSAIn an effort to educate the public on Floridas new texting while driving ban that went into effect Oct. 1, Pinellas County Schools and the Pinellas County Sherriffs Office partnered to create a one-minute Public Service Announcement. Our driver education program already focuses on teaching our students about the dangers of distracted driving, but this collaboration with the Sheriffs Office will help us further spread awareness about the intent of the law, which really is about saving lives, said Michael A. Grego in a press release. Grego is superintendent of Pinellas County Schools. Educating the public as a whole can help protect our students, whether they are behind the wheel, riding as a passenger, walking or bicycling. Officials with the two public agencies collaborated to create the PSA to help spread awareness about the new law. The new law makes texting or emailing while driving a secondary offense. This means that you must be pulled over for a primary offense such as not wearing your seat belt or speeding before you can be issued a citation for texting while driving. The first offense is a nonmoving violation with a fine of $116. The second or subsequent violation within five years is a moving violation with increased fines and points added to your driving record. The PSA features a Pinellas County Schools student, who is pulled over by a Sheriffs Deputy who witnessed the driver swerving across the road, as she was texting while driving. Because the PSA is educational, the deputy explains the law to the driver before giving her a verbal warning. We are pleased to partner with Pinellas County Schools in the development of this Public Service Announcement, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. Our aim is to educate students and all drivers about the new law and to remind them that no text is important enough to risk their life or that of others on the roadways. Remember, it can wait. The students in the PSA are in the drama program at Osceola Fundamental High School. The student driver is played by senior Zena Griffin, and the student friend is junior Lauren Quinn. Senior Micaela Ensey, an executive intern for the Office of Strategic Communications Multimedia Department, helped edit the video. PCSO Public Information Officer Sgt. David DiSano, an 11-year veteran of the Sheriffs Office, played the deputy in the PSA.Swierk wins poster contestCLEARWATER The Clearwater Bar Association has awarded Nikolas Swierk, a student at Cypress Woods Elementary School, as the first-place winner for the third grade in North Pinellas County in the 2013 Law Day Poster Contest.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:The CounselorGenre: Thriller Cast: Michael Fassbender, Penlope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Brad Pitt Director: Ridley Scott Rated: R Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy have joined forces in the motion picture thriller The Counselor, starring Michael Fassbender, Penlope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt. McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the authors characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyers one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control. Told with wit, and ultimately violence and pathos, The Counselor is a cautionary tale about mistakenly tempting fate. It is, says Cormac McCarthy about people who get involved in something they should have stayed out of. Once dubbed the Shakespeare of the West, McCarthys unforgettable characters have captivated the imaginations of millions of readers. While several of his novels including No Country for Old Men, The Road and All The Pretty Horses have been turned into films, McCarthy surprised everyone when he turned in the screenplay for The Counselor. Its characters are remarkable, the circumstances disquieting, and McCarthys wit and humor make the nightmare scenarios even darker.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30. Call 565-0550 or visit jannuslive.com. This is Greys seventh album his fifth for Alligator Records and his first studio album since 2010s acclaimed Georgia Warhorse. This River, like his previous releases, was produced by Grey and Dan Prothero, and recorded at Retrophonics Studio in St. Augustine, with additional recording done in Greys home studio, known as The Egg Room. As proven by his previous albums, Grey is a meticulous storyteller. Many of the new songs, said Grey in a press release from Alligator Records, are about being your own worst enemy, and about normal folks pushing themselves over the edge. Greys lyrics and sliceof-life scenarios are filled with honest detail, helping to bring his emotionally complex characters to life in songs including Somebody Else, Shades Of Crazy, The Ballad Of Larry Webb and This River. I see a little bit of myself in these songs, Grey said. The difference is in the choices people make. His gritty vocals and punchy horn arrangements add even more depth to the lyrical album. Greys fervent delivery and the expert musicianship of the band pull the listener deep inside each track, making This River a deeply moving and engaging musical statement. I took my time and Im happy for it, said Grey. For This River, Grey brought the whole band in to the studio and cut most of the tracks live. To Grey, the result was a bit more like their live show. It adds so much more to the dynamic of a recording. Its so different when you get to play off each other rather than overdub each track, said Grey. From his early days playing cover music behind chicken wire at a Westside Jacksonville juke joint to playing sold-out shows and some of the largest music festivals in the world, its been a long road. But Grey has no illusions about where hes headed or where hes been. When prompted with questions about his past accomplishments or future plans, Grey lays down a little backwoods wisdom: Im just a salmon swimming upstream, Grey said. Going back home, I reckon. I dont know why and I quit caring why a long time ago. I guess there is no why that my mind could understand anyway. All I do know is that Ive enjoyed and Im still enjoying every second of just being here and doing whatever it is Im doing. JJ Grey is from Jacksonville, He made his recording debut in 2001 with Blackwater, following up in 2004 with Lochloosa. Alligator has reissued both albums. In 2007 Grey released his Alligator debut, Country Ghetto, followed by 2008s Orange Blossoms. With the release of 2010s Georgia Warhorse, Grey stepped further into the mainstream view with the AAA radio breakout single The Sweetest Thing. In 2011 the full fury of the bands live show was captured on the live CD/DVD Brighter Days. Grey has played countless festivals, including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Austin City Limits Festival, the Byron Bay Blues Festival in Australia, Montreal Jazz Festival and Fuji Rock in Japan. Over the course of his career, Grey has shared stages with the likes of Lenny Kravitz, B.B. King, The Allman Brothers Band, The Black Crowes, Los Lobos, Jeff Beck, Ben Harper, Booker T. Jones, Mavis Staples and many others. In 2011 the band extensively toured the UK. That same year, back in the United States, Grey embarked on his first-ever solo tour, playing packed-to-capacity clubs. The band returned to Europe in 2012, playing multiple dates in the UK, Germany and The Netherlands. Grey and his band, who continue to play over 125 shows a year, will return to Europe in 2013. Greys songs have appeared in film and network television including House, Flashpoint, Crash, Friday Night Lights, The Glades, The Deadliest Catch and the film The Hoot. In November 2009, Grey wrote his first film score for the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning documentary The Good Soldier, that appeared in theatres and on Bill Moyers Journal on PBS. In 2010, Grey played piano, sang and contributed the song The Wrong Side to Buckwheat Zydecos Grammy-winning Alligator Records album Lay Your Burden Down. He also appears on Shemekia Copelands Grammy-nominated 2012 CD 1/3.Grey to debut custom craft beer JJ Grey, leader of JJ Grey & Mofro, has teamed with Floridas Rock Brothers Brewery to create a custom craft beer. Grey, a Florida native, worked with the brewery to develop JJ Greys Nare Sugar Brown. The beer will make its debut on Nov. 1 at the JJ Grey & Mofro concert in St. Petersburg at Jannus Live. The beer, an ale named after Greys grandfathers preferred way to drink his coffee nare sugar will only be available in Florida at the present time. Grey was actively involved in the beers creation. We sat down and talked about it for a while, said Grey in a press release from Alligator Records. And during that conversation I was educated on how artful brew mastering really is. We all put our heads together and then these guys went out and created the beer from scratch. The whole process was amazing and I feel really lucky to have been a part of it. In the end I think they made a beer that somehow matches my music sip for sip (or chug) and note for note. Grey and Rock Brothers Brewery will donate 5 percent of net proceeds of Nare Sugar Brown sales to The Snook and Gamefish Foundation, a not-forprofit 501(c)3 corporation that serves as a platform for anglers and conservationists to preserve, protect and enhance game fish populations.Photo courtesy of NEIL OBRIEN ENTERTAINMENTTouring in support of the new album This River, JJ Grey takes the stage at Jannus Live on Nov. 1.Born to Ride comes to England Brothers Park By TIFFANY RAZZANOPINELLAS PARK Are you ready to rock? Born to Ride Day of the Dead jam, a biker and music festival, will bring some of classic rocks heavy hitters to England Brothers Park, Saturday, Nov. 2. The main stage features co-headliners Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and Paul Rodgers (Bad Company, Queen, Free, The Firm), as well as Foghat, Molly Hatchet, Blackberry Smoke, David Allan Coe, and Soul Circus Cowboys. A second stage will feature a bevy of bands as well, including Mojo Gurus, The Stone City, Bobby Lee Rodgers, The Sting Police and Owen Campbell.

Plus, Danny The Count Koker and Kevin Mack from Counting Cars, and pool champion Jeanette Lee, better known as The Black Widow, will be there as well. Its not only for bikers. Its so much bigger than a biker festival, said Ron Galletti, owner of Born to Ride cable TV show and magazine, and co-sponsor of the Nov. 2 event. Its like an old-school concert. Most people would come out to just see one of these bands. We have some real power coming to Pinellas Park. Tom Nestor, the events marketing director, added, Whether youre a biker, a classic rocker, a Southern rebel, an indie kid, part of the LGBT community, theres something for you. The festival came about thanks to the vision of Frank Giglio, president of Born to Ride Jam LLC. Last year, he helped bring major acts Blondie and Sublime to England Brothers Park. So when he envisioned the large-scale biker and music event that would become Born to Ride Day of the Dead Jam, he immediately thought of Pinellas Park. Its the perfect place for this, Giglio said. Its a central location in the heart of Tampa Bay. And its an awesome park. He also immediately reached out to Galletti, who in addition to his cable show and magazine also organizes monthly bike night events at Quaker Steak & Lube. It just made so much sense, Galletti said. I couldnt do this without him. We have a great partnership. Pinellas Park residents should also keep their eyes out for a special coupon mailed with their water bill. The coupon will allow them to purchase up to eight two-for-one tickets. Its our special thank you to the people that live in Pinellas Park, Giglio said. General admission tickets are $25; general admission with VIP access is $79; gold seating is $119; platinum seating is $159; and access to the platinum VIP tent is $250.

OPENING, from page 1BAcua, Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Dave England and Ehren McGhehey Director: Jeff Tremaine Rated: R 86-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, his 8-year-old Grandson Billy in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on film. Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens. Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The SquareGenre: Documentary Director: Jehane Noujaim Not rated The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster over the past two and a half years. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of July 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years. The Square is an immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces: from a brutal army dictatorship willing to crush protesters with military tanks, to a corrupt Muslim Brotherhood using mosques to manipulate voters.The PinGenre: Drama Cast: Milda Gecaite, Grisha Pasternak, Paskal Vaklev and David Fox Director: Naomi Jaye Rated: R An embittered elderly Shomer, a religious watchman responsible for guarding the souls of the dead before their burial, comes face-to-face with his long lost first love Leah when her dead body is wheeled into the morgue one fateful night. Time melts as he relives their days and nights spent hiding in a barn in Lithuania, fighting for survival as World War Two rages around them. Brought together in these extreme circumstances, what starts as mistrust develops into love, marriage and ultimately murder. In the end, the Shomer is able to find peace after a lifetime of regret by fulfilling a promise he made to the young Leah on their last night together.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

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?

For 45 years, Poco has been making music in the realm of the classic country rock sound that they helped found in the late s, one that inspired other acts to follow suit bands such as The Eagles, Firefall, The Little River Band and Pure Prairie League. To endure across six decades, the band knew long ago they needed to attract a rabid fan base that considers their music to be a soundtrack to their lives. At the same time, Poco continued to evolve and refine their sound while staying true to their roots. Over the years, Poco has succeeded at achieving both of these goals. All Fired Up, their new studio album their first in 11 years is a celebration of longevity and unparalleled songwriting. Still led by singer and songwriter Rusty Young, the addition of two more excellent songwriters in bassist Jack Sundrud and keyboardist Michael Webb as well as drummer George Lawrence over the past decade, helped to reshape Poco for another generation. The music has evolved over the years, said Young in a press release from Michael J. Media. Different band members bring different voices to the sound and in many ways keep the music fresh. History shows that Poco has always had great musicians in the band and its no different today. Were growing musically, challenging ourselves and moving ahead to create the best music weve ever made. Released this March, All Fired Up was self-produced and recorded at several studios including Sixteen Tons in Nashville, the home studios of Sundrud and Webb, Wildwood Lodge in Missouri and Sound Emporium in Nashville. The album shows a band that has no problem celebrating its storied past while enjoying every minute of the present. And Young explains the diversity of the material that also manages to stay cohesive. Most of the songs were written in the last year or so, he said. It took me two years to get Regret to the point I was happy with it and A Little Rain is a song weve been doing in concert for the last three years. Jacks Hard Country is a concert favorite weve been playing for a number of years too. The title track was a song that was written just for the CD. We wanted to give a nod to the classic Poco sound that everyone loves from the early days and we think All Fired Up nails it. Michael (Webb) has Bobby Keys playing sax on one of his songs, Thats What Rock n Roll Will Do, which is very cool. Jacks Hard Country is destined to be a Poco classic. Im especially excited about a song called Rockin Horse for a couple of reasons. There is also the tongue-in-cheek Neil Young, which talks about Rusty not being Neils brother. I dont think Neil has heard it yet, Young joked. I would hope hed get a kick out of it and I wonder how many times people have asked him about his brother Rusty. Young is also celebrating his induction into the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in St. Louis alongside other steel players that helped influence him. In addition, Young is in Guitar Player Magazines Gallery of Greats along with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn. In addition Poco boasts a Grammy nomination for Instrumental of the Year and fans can find the bands memorabilia on display at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Poco, which has never stopped touring over the years despite lineup changes, will tour a bit more vigorously in support of All Fired Up. Were anxious to show everyone that were excited about the future for Poco and were fired up and ready to go, said Young. Were hoping to reintroduce Poco to the fans that may have drifted away over the years, and to remind them of why they were fans in the first place. And it would of course be great if the CD captures new fans. Were always trying to attract new Poconuts. Of course, its inevitable that the longer a band stays together, the more it often has to change in order to adapt and stick around and also has to love what they do. Thats the takeaway from a poignant narrative written by Lawrence for the album. There is no manual for a 45-year-old rock band, he said. Long time Poco fans will find plenty of nods to the earlier sound, while new-found fans will hear the new energy and direction, said Sundrud. All Fired Up is aptly titled, relevant to the bands musical roots and blazing a new trail into the future. The songs are rocking, thought-provoking, fun Photos courtesy of MICHAEL J. MEDIA GROUPPoco plays Clearwaters Blast Friday event Oct. 25 in the Cleveland Street district.and most of all, pure Poco. Known as pioneers of the country-rock sound that soared out of California in the late and early s, Poco was founded by Richie Furay, Jim Messina, and Rusty Young, a trio whose lifetime musical journey began while working on the Buffalo Springfields final album, The Last Time Around. With the addition of George Grantham and Randy Meisner, the initial Poco lineup was set. Following the Pocos 1969 debut, Pickin Up The Pieces, the band went through several personnel changes including the departure of Jim Messina and Richie Furay, as well as when bassist Randy Meisner left to join The Eagles. Poco went on to chart several times with hits like Crazy Love and Heart of the Night, both from the critically acclaimed Legend album, as well as Rose of Cimarron, Good Feeling To Know and Youd Better Think Twice. In 1989, the band brought back Messina, Furay and Meisner to record Legacy, which spawned a few more of the bands Top 40 hits, Call It Love and Nothing To Hide. Pocos new millennium releases 2002s Running Horse, 2005s Bareback At Big Sky, the 2004 live CD/DVD Keeping The Legend Alive and 2013s All Fired Up are among the best of their career. With 45 years, more than 25 albums and thousands of fans behind them, Poco was, is and forever will be the defining voice of country/rock. Blast Friday was established in 2009 as downtown Clearwaters free, family-friendly street festival. Supported by the city of Clearwater, the Cleveland Street District and the Downtown Development Board and produced by Ruth Eckerd Hall On The Road, Blast Friday hosts 10 events a year bringing more than 40,000 people to downtown Clearwater. Upcoming Blast Friday featured performers include Little River Band, Dec. 27; Pure Prairie League, Jan. 31; Gregg Rolie, Feb. 28; Firefall, March 28; Mark Farner with Stormbringer, April 25; and the Edgar Winter Band, May 30.

Bill Young dies at age 82Public funeral to be held at First Baptist Indian Rocks in Largo By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County lost a powerful ally Friday night. Charles William Bill Young, 82, of Indian Shores, the nations longest serving Republican member of the U.S. Congress, died Oct. 18, 2013. Young served more than 50 years in public office 10 in the Florida State Senate and 42 in the United States Congress. Youngs family was with him when he passed away about 6:50 p.m. at The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. Young died from complications related to a chronic injury, according to a statement from his family. The Congressman had been hospitalized for the past two weeks for treatment of chronic back pain, the result of injuries from a 1970 small plane crash. A public visitation was held Oct. 23, at Bill Young Armed Forces Reserve Center, 2801 Grand Ave. in Pinellas Park. A public funeral is Thursday, Oct. 24, 1 p.m., at First Baptist Indian Rocks, 12685 Ulmerton Road, Largo. A private burial will follow.Local reactionIn these days of social media and email, reaction to Youngs death came quick. Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch posted on his Facebook page shortly after the announcement of Youngs passing. Thoughts and prayers to Congressman C.W. Bill Young and his family. Congressman Young was a great leader and representative. Faith and family will carry you through, Welch wrote. Welch and his family are still recovering from the recent death of the commissioners father, Dr. David Welch, who died Sept. 16. Welch posted photos of himself and his father with Congressman Young. Bill Mischler, former longtime mayor of Pinellas Park also expressed his thoughts on Facebook. I didnt lose my Congressman this evening, Mischler wrote. I lost my friend and mentor. Congressman C.W. Bill Young passed away at 6:50 p.m. this evening. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Doctors Charles Friedman and Philip Bagenski opened Recovery Resources of Florida at the epicenter of an epidemic. The new outpatient substance abuse treatment facility is designed to diagnose and treat patients in a holistic and comprehensive way, reversing the countys worsening trend of addiction due to illicit drugs, alcohol and most recently prescription drugs. The substance abuse in Pinellas County is of epic proportions, Friedman said. The doctors come from different backgrounds. Bagenski has practiced internal medicine for more than a decade and, earlier in his career, had a personal struggle with addiction. Friedman has practiced pain management since opening his practice in 1992 and saw firsthand how the proliferation of pain clinics and pharmaceutical companies turned pain medicine into an addiction for many patients. Friedman and Bagenski met while training in addiction medicine though a unique, year-long fellowship at the University of Floridas College of Medicine. During that fellowship, they recognized a shared goal to return to Pinellas and have an impact on a community struggling with addiction. Theres a lot of tragedy and sadness that goes along with addiction, Bagenski said. A lot of people die. Kids end up in situations they should not be in. We hope to be able to change some of that.The new pain patientWhen Friedman began his practice, Pain Relief Centers, in 1992, pain medication had just become a sub-specialty. In the 1990s, it was controversial to prescribe opiates such as morphine and methadone, and doctors were hesitant to approve pain medications for long-term use for anything other than cancer pain, Friedman explained. But in the early 2000s, there was a significant increase in the use of opioids, which include semisynthetic drugs such as oxycodone. The medical community essentially turned the tables and decided to have a war on pain, Friedman said. This coincided with an explosion of pharmaceutical companies marketing long-acting pain medications to physicians, he added. Education on these medications was often limited to the information the drug representatives provided. We had a proliferation of doctors who were writing for pain medications that were not trained in pain management, resulting in a huge increase in deaths and inappropriate prescribing, Friedman said.

Some motorists received tickets from Largo police during the Halloween Open because their vehicles wheels rested on or across the sidewalk.Good strokesMPO focuses on multi-named roadways By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER The Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization is working on a plan to reduce or eliminate multi-named roadways. Residents and tourists often have difficulty traveling through the county due to roadways changing names. Many times these name changes occur when crossing municipal boundaries. With over 6 million tourists per year, it is confusing to give directions throughout Pinellas County with the inconsistent roadway naming, a Sept. 13 report from the MPOs Multi-named Roads Working Group said. The MPO discussed the findings of its subgroup at its Oct. 8 meeting. The past few years, the focus has been on Bryan Dairy Road, aka County Road 296. Motorists traveling through the county also will find that the C.R. 296 corridor changes to 102nd Avenue North and 118th Avenue. Most municipalities have favored the use of one name Bryan Dairy Road from Hamlin to the Interstate, but the city of St. Petersburg opposed using the name east of U.S. 19 (State Road 55). St. Petersburg prefers a unique name that shows the roads function as a connector from the north to the south and east. In 2012, the state legislature approved designating the section of 118th Avenue North (C.R. 298) east of U.S. 19 as the St. Pete Crosstown. The states action was not an official renaming of the corridor. An official name change would require approval of the county and the city of Pinellas Park, which has not occurred. Plans for the future call for the section of C.R. 296 east of U.S. 19 to be reconfigured significantly with the addition of the Roosevelt Connector, the S.R. 690 Corridor extension, and a potential exchange of roadways jurisdictions in the area.

Leader, October 24, 2013Please keep his wife Beverly and the rest of his family in your prayers at this time. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office posted Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Congressman C.W. Bill Young a great friend to our agency and our community for the past 53 years. Many posted condolences and photos throughout the weekend on their Facebook page and messages were frequent on Twitter. Young announced Oct. 9 that he would not be seeking re-election in 2014. Some news sources falsely reported Oct. 17 that he had died. His family released a statement shortly thereafter. Rep. C.W. Bill Youngs condition turned for the worse overnight and he is gravely ill, the statement said. His doctors say his prognosis is guarded. Calls to the Congressmans office the afternoon of Oct. 18 revealed nothing new on his condition. That night, his family announced that the Congressman had died.Pinellas Countys representativeYoung served 10 years in the Florida State Senate, 1960 to 1970. He served Floridas 13th Congressional District in the House of Representatives from 1971 to 2013. The 13th Congressional District is the only one in the state contained within one county. It includes all of Pinellas except for precincts in south St. Petersburg. Young has been a strong advocate for Pinellas County. Despite his poor health, he fought for Pinellas County as long as he could. Only a month ago, he testified during a Sept. 18 hearing of the U.S. Senates Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and Subcommittee on Economic Policy about the problems the implementation of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012 was causing for his constituents. Young relayed the concern, outrage and fear of his constituents, many from Pinellas, about the devastating effect of premium increases. He urged the Senate to delay implementation. Young took on many local issues, including congestion on U.S. 19. He worked tirelessly to attract high-tech jobs to St. Petersburg. He took steps to improve health care for low-income children and families in this county. He was instrumental in the creation of Tampa Bay Water to ensure the areas drinking water supply. The reservoir bears his name. He has been a strong ally in getting funding for nourishment of the countys beaches.Long history of serviceYoungs tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives lasted through eight presidential administrations, including Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. At the time of his death, he was serving as Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, which he also chaired from 1995 to 1998 and 2005 to 2006. He was a member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and the Appropriations Subcommittee on the Legislative Branch. Young served as chair of the House Appropriations Committee from 1999 to 2005. The last time the United States had a balanced federal budget was when he was chair, according to his website. He was a strong advocate for biomedical research. He secured federal funding for increased immunizations for preschoolers, improved public health programs, and cures for Parkinsons and Alzheimers diseases. One of his hallmark achievements is creation of a national registry for bone marrow donors established in 1986. Congress named the program the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program in 2005. The Department of Defense also established the C.W. Bill Young Marrow Donor Center, which is one of 79 centers in the United States. The DODs program focuses on recruiting marrow donors from active military personnel. The C.W. Bill Young Marrow Donor Recruitment and Research Program has registered more than 6 million Americans, including more than 400,000 service members, as marrow donors. More than 9 million volunteer donors are currently registered. The registry has provided matches for life-saving transplants for more than 50,000 individuals. A nine-year veteran of the Army National Guard, 1948 to 1957, and six more as a reservist, Young is known for his work for veterans, including the expansion of the Bay Pines VA Medical Center in Seminole. Youngs website talks about his work to better the lives of veterans and active military personnel through his position on the Appropriations Committee. He met with enlisted personnel and officers to assess their needs and advocated improved base housing, better medical care, increased pay and better equipment. A number of photos on his website show the Congressman meeting with veterans, most recently those participating in Honor Flights from Pinellas County.Humble beginningsYoung was born in Harmarville, Pa., Dec. 16, 1930. He spent the first 14 years of his life in the small coal-mining town located in Harmar Township in Allegheny County, current population 1,200. The Allegheny River Lock and Dam No. 3, built in 1932, was named the C.W. Bill Young Lock and Dam in his honor. When Young was age 6, his father left the family after a flood washed away their home. At age 15, his family moved to Pinellas County to live with an uncle. Young later dropped out of St. Petersburg High School to take care of his sick mother. He joined the Army National Guard at age 18. At age 25, he began a career as an insurance salesman, eventually opening his own agency. He was elected to the Florida Senate in 1960. Young divorced his first wife in 1985, which whom he had three children, and married his current wife, Beverly the same year. They had two children together, Billy, and Patrick, and raised Beverlys son, Rob, from her first marriage. Florida Gov. Rick Scott released a statement on Youngs death. Ann and I join all Floridians as we mourn the passing of Rep. Bill Young. As Floridas longest serving member of Congress, Bill will be remembered as a true statesman and champion for the Tampa Bay area, Scott said. He served with eight U.S. Presidents throughout his career, always putting the families of Florida first, and working across the aisle to find solutions. His work to support military family, our veterans, and his own service with the Army National Guard and as a reservist, will leave a lasting legacy. Rep. Young will be missed by his constituents and our entire nation. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio also released a statement Friday night. Floridians have lost one of the greatest public servants weve ever had in our states history, Rubio said. For over a half century, Bill fought tirelessly for the Tampa Bay region and to strengthen Floridas role as a critical part of our national defense. Largely because of Bill Young, many of our nations brave men and women in uniform have called Florida home at some point in their careers, with many of them spending their golden retirement years here. Throughout Bills career, our military and veterans have had no greater champion than him. My thoughts and prayers are with Bills wife, Beverly, and their entire family.Filling the voidThe U.S. Constitution mandates that members of the House of Representatives be replaced only by an election held in the congressional district of the former representative. It is the responsibility of the state governor to call for a special election to replace the vacant House seat. As of Sunday night, Scott has made no announcement of an election. According to federal law, the office of the former representative remains open until a replacement is elected. Staff operates under the supervision of the Clerk of the House of Representatives. The congressional district no longer has a voting representation; however, constituents can continue to contact the interim office for assistance with a limited range of services.

Municipalities that favored a complete name change years ago may no longer be agreeable, the working group reported. The city of Pinellas Park would likely recommend a delay due to the possibility of changes creating financial issues for the affected properties, the report said. However, the working group did agree that the 102nd Avenue North segment would be the best place to start the renaming to Bryan Dairy Road. The renaming would take place on 102nd Avenue North from Hamlin Boulevard to Lake Seminole Bridge, just west of Starkey Road (C.R. 1). The area is mostly residential and most homes have addresses of interior roadways not 102nd Avenue North. This would initiate the consistent roadway naming effort and provide a test case on proceeding to the rest of this corridor and potentially to other corridors, the working groups report said. This would also provide the uniform name of Bryan Dairy Road for the corridor to the west of U.S. 19 (S.R. 55). Sarah Ward, interim MPO executive director, informed MPO members Oct. 8 of the working groups recommendations. She said the cities of Seminole and Pinellas Park supported changing the name to Bryan Dairy Road on 102nd Avenue North from west of Starkey Road to Hamlin Boulevard. The MPO unanimously accepted that recommendation. MPO members also unanimously agreed to hold off on additional renaming at this time. The MPO subgroup also reviewed a list of other multi-named roadways, including the Alt. U.S. 19 corridor, which has 14 different names, as well as C.R. 321 corridor, aka Clearwater-Largo Road, Ridge Road, 113th Street and Duhme Road; and C.R. 1 corridor, aka Omaha Street, Keene Road, Starkey Road and Park Street. These roadways traverse many jurisdictions and communities identify with the roadway names, the subgroup reported. The consensus was to ask municipalities to modify roadway signs to show the county or state road number along with the road name. One example was C.R. 611 East Lake Road. The road number would provide the consistency along the corridor while the name would still provide the community identity and not necessitate a road name change for property owners and residents, the working group reported. Due to the cost of installing new signs, the MPO recommends that new signs with the roadway number and name be used when existing signs are replaced. Costs for replacement of the small road signs is about $130 each, Ward said. MPO Chair Karen Seel said the idea for the dual designation on signs was the idea of the city of Seminoles Community Development Director Mark Ely. The idea is to phase in the sign changes over time, she said. We will ask the DOT to help fund state roads. Dunedin Vice-Mayor Julie Ward-Bujalski asked about changing the big signs, such as the ones over the interstate. Tourists look for the big signs, she said. Seel said the MPO did not have the authority to require municipalities to make sign changes. She pointed out that it would cost more to change big signs. The MPO would just encourage them to do this as they replace signs unless they want to do it sooner, she said. The MPO agreed unanimously to go forward to work with the municipalities on the plan. This has been one of my pet peeves for many years, Seel said. Im glad to put my peeve to rest.Daytime-only truck routeThe MPO also unanimously approved a request from the city of Clearwater to amend the countys truck route plan to add daytime-only truck routes to a section of Keene Road from Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard (State Road 60) to Sunset Point Road and Sunset Point Road from Keene Road to Hercules Avenue. MPO maintains a truck route plan that identifies roadways that heavy trucks are required to travel and any time-of-day restrictions. Municipalities and the county work in conjunction to maintain consistency across jurisdictional boundaries. Trucks are required to use designated truck routes up to the point closest to their destination. Amending the truck route to provide the new daytime-only route would provide more efficiency for city of Clearwater vehicles. The MPOs Technical Coordinating Committee, which recommended approval of the change, noted that the route would provide easier and more efficient circulation of all truck traffic in the area. The city of Dunedin reviewed the truck routes and agreed with the recommendation. Map courtesy of MPOPinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization recommends renaming 102nd Avenue North as Bryan Dairy Road to eliminate name changes along the County Road 296 Corridor, which also is known as 118th Avenue.

The suspects are using a phone spoofing technique to make it appear they are calling from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Detectives were first notified of the phone scam Tuesday, Oct. 15. The suspects are calling businesses and residents located in Pinellas County. According to detectives, three cases have been identified this week where local businesses and residences have been targeted by the phone scam. The suspects call and tell victims they are detectives with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. They state the victim on the line has an outstanding warrant with the Department of Justice or the U.S. Department of Treasury and if their fines are not paid, they will be arrested. They request the money to be sent via prepaid credit cards, MoneyGram or Western Union. The suspects are using a spoofing technique to link their phone number to the Sheriffs Office nonemergency line. The spoofing technique allows the suspects to use a specialized computer program or phone app to fraudulently display the Sheriffs Office phone number on the victims caller ID. The suspects making the phone calls are male and appear to have foreign accents. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office will never call citizens requesting money over the telephone. Detectives advise citizens that they should not give personal information or account information over the phone unless you are initiating the phone call. Anyone with information on these scams or has become a victim to these scams are asked to call Sgt. Tim Kelly with the Economic Crimes Unit at 582-6200.Help needed to ID burglary suspectCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are seeking the publics help to locate a burglary suspect who stole from a home in Clearwater. According to detectives with the Burglary/Pawn Unit, the burglary occurred about 5:34 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, at a private residence in Clearwater. Detectives said that the suspect drove into the driveway of a private residence in a white regular cab truck. The suspect was observed exiting the truck and walking to the side garage door. It is unknown when the suspect left the residence or which direction she was headed. The suspect is a white female about 30 years old with brown hair and a medium build. She was last seen wearing a light blue T-shirt, black Capri-style pants and white shoes. Her hair was pulled back in a ponytail. Anyone with information on this burglary is asked to contact Detective C. Parkins of the Burglary/Pawn Unit at 582-6976 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppers ofpinellas.org.DUI checkpoint yields resultsCLEARWATER On Oct. 18, Clearwater police officers helped the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office with a DUI checkpoint in Palm Harbor. Of the 1,899 vehicles that passed the checkpoint, 376 were diverted in for evaluation. The results are as follows: 5 DUIs 2 driving with suspended or revoked license 1 possession of marijuana 1 providing false name to a law enforcement officer 1 no valid drivers license 1 fleeing and eluding a police officer 21 citationsPolice warn of scamCLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department warns the public that a man by the name of Richard Hamilton has been calling people saying he is from the Florida State Police in Clearwater. He tells them that there is a warrant for their arrest and can call Robert Bradley at the following number to rectify it: 202-241-5084. The caller ID shows either emergency only or 727-4646415, which is the main number for the Pinellas County Jail. This is a scam, and the number is being spoofed, Clearwater police say. When you call the number, they answer, stating they are the Federal Crimes Network and supposedly look up your information by your phone number. They go on to tell you they are IRS agents and have multiple federal charges against you, as well as you owing money for back tax returns. They give you the opportunity to make a payment using Green Dot money vouchers to settle the matter before it goes to court. They even go so far as to wait on the line while you get the Green Dot cards. If you have been exposed to anything like this, call Clearwater Police at 562-4424.Crossing guards soughtCLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department is searching for crossing guards to help children get to and from school safely. Crossing guards earn $10.41 an hour, and applicants must meet and maintain certain requirements for health and physical condition, which includes basic vision and hearing screenings. People must be at least 19 years old and have a valid drivers license and high school diploma or GED.

The Supervisor of Elections Office has mailed 1,353 ballots to residents for the Nov. 5 election, which is being conducted by mail ballot only. Twenty-one ballots went out Sept. 20 to military personnel and residents overseas. Another 1,332 were mailed Oct. 16. As of Oct. 18, only one ballot had been returned. Belleair Beach City Manager Nancy Gonzalez took some of the mystery out of the legalese of the single referendum question that appears on the ballot. Residents are asked to vote yes or no to approve a charter amendment to appoint a special magistrate for board of adjustment variances as needed. The specific question reads, Shall section 6.03 of the Belleair Beach City Charter pertaining to the board of adjustment be amended by adding the appointment of a special magistrate by the city council to adjudicate requests for variances and other duties assigned by the city code to the board of adjustment under certain circumstances? Gonzalez explained that the special circumstance would only come into play during times that Board of Adjustment didnt have enough members at its monthly meeting to form a quorum. Belleair Beach has a seven-member board of adjustments that meets once a month. Applications for variances must be submitted to the city by noon on the second Tuesday of the month to be heard the next month. In the summer, it is often difficult to get a quorum when many of the members are away, Gonzalez said. Sometimes decisions get put off for three or four months. The city believes that having a special magistrate would solve the problem. We would use the special magistrate only when we couldnt get a quorum, Gonzalez said. Its not See BALLOTS, page 7A

Exp. 11-15-13 LB By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Tampa Bay Waters board of directors voted, 8-0, Oct. 21 to pay HDR Engineerings legal fees and costs, totaling about $21 million. The vote signals the end of litigation against HDR Engineering over the failed soil-cement liner in the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. The fees include costs for the trial, post-trial proceedings and the appeal. The costs will be paid through funds on hand and they will not directly affect water rates, according to a press release. While the outcome has fallen well short of our expectations and was not favorable for the agency, we firmly believe that trying to recoup the publics investment through legal action was the right decision, said Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala, board chair for Tampa Bay Water. We fought hard for what is right, and now we have to do what is in the best interest of the agency and the community to bring this chapter to a close. The United States Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion Sept. 23 agreeing with the judgment of the trial court in the case of the cracked soil-cement at the reservoir. Tampa Bay Water filed a federal lawsuit in December 2008 against HDR, as well as the contractor Barnard Construction and the construction manager CDG after cracks were discovered in the reservoirs interior soil-cement lining. Tampa Bay Waters board rejected a $30 million settlement offer from HDR after the boards advisers estimated the agency could get as much as $97 if they won the lawsuit. A federal jury ruled against Tampa Bay Water April 10, saying that HDR did not breach its standard of care when designing the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. The reservoir began operation in 2005 and provides water storage for Tampa Bay Waters regional system during the dry season, at which time water is pumped from the reservoir to the surface water treatment plant and then on to the customer. Cracks were found in the flat-plate, soil-cement, erosion-control layer lining of the reservoirs interior during an inspection in December 2006. After studies and data analysis of the problem by consulting engineers, Tampa Bay Waters system engineer said in a June 2009 report that the reservoir was safeBoard votes to end reservoir case Photo courtesy of TAMPA BAY WATERThis alligator doesnt mind the cracks in the cement lining of the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir. Repairs to fix the problem should be complete by the end of 2014.and could be fixed. Tampa Bay Water spent the next two years looking for the right solution and the right firm to do the work. A $162 million contract was awarded to design-builder Kiewit Infrastructure South in August 2011 to renovate the reservoir and, upon staffs recommendation, increase its storage capacity by 3 billion gallons. Of the $162 million, officials said $42 million would be used to increase the storage capacity, and $120 million was allocated to the reservoirs renovation. About $6 billion was set aside for unforeseen costs. Work is scheduled to occur in two phases. Tampa Bay Water funded the $15 million needed for the first phase through existing bond proceeds, resulting in no rate impact for customers in the nearterm. The reservoir is currently closed as repairs continue. The facility expected to be fully operational by the end of 2014. This long-term fix ensures that the regions reservoir, a key component of our surface water system, is reliable and serving the region for the longterm, Tampa Bay Water said in the press release. Tampa Bay Water provides wholesale water to the public utility systems of Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, as well as the cities of New Port Richey, St. Petersburg and Tampa. More information about Tampa Bay Water is available at www.tampabaywater.org. fair to the applicant to have to wait. A quorum is four members, she said, and even if four members can make it to a meeting, decisions have to be unanimous. She said applicants are given the option to table the matter until more members can attend. But it is a hardship on the applicants and contractors trying to keep a schedule, she said. Variances are required anytime someone wants to build something that does not comply with the citys code. Residents apply for building permits from the county, but the county wont grant them if they see something in the plans that violate code. Residents have to go to the board of adjustment for permission via a variance. Gonzalez said variances could be needed because a project encroaches on setbacks or perhaps plans for a fence call for it to be higher than the code allows. She gave an example of a recent project where residents living in a two-story home wanted to build a staircase from the second story down to the garage. City code didnt allow them to build as planned, so they had to go before the board of adjustments. If resident says yes to the referendum, many problems would be solved, she said. We owe our residents the courtesy of being able to do this (grant variances) in a timely manner, she said.All mail ballot electionsThe Belleair Beach Nov. 5 election marks the fourth all-mail ballot election conducted by Pinellas Countys Election Office. All registered voters within the city should have received their ballot. Anyone who has not received a ballot should call the Elections Office at 464-vote (8683).

Expires Friday, Nov. 29, 2013 Pinellas County bed tax collections may hit new high mark By SUZETTE PORTERCLEARWATER Pinellas Countys tourist development tax, aka the bed tax, is on point to break an all-time record. With August revenue totaled, the 5 percent tax collected on accommodations rented for less than six months for 2013 is up to $28.8 million. And theres one more month to go. Were right on track to break $30 million, D.T. Minich, Convention & Visitors Bureau director, reported at the Tourist Development Councils Oct. 16 meeting. If the $30 million mark is reached, Pinellas will become a high impact tax county one of only six in the state. Then well move into a whole new realm, he said. Qualifying as a high impact tax county would allow the TDC to collect a 6 percent tourist tax, providing more money to pay for the cost of maintaining a high quality destination. TDC tax funds the Tourist Development Council and Convention & Visitors Bureau. Currently 54 percent of the money collected goes to pay for marketing and operations, 19 percent for debt service, 9 percent for beach nourishment, 2 percent goes to the tax collector and 16 percent is set aside for reserves. Dennis Long with the county attorneys office explained that once the county qualifies it would remain a high impact tax county even if collections fall short of $30 million in subsequent years. You dont have to re-qualify each year, he said. $30 million is a big benchmark, Minich added.Tampa Bays beachesMary Delong with BVK Advertising reported on results of a survey done to find out the effect of Visit Tampa Bays new name on local tourism. St. Petersburg-Clearwater combined to make a better destination by a large margin, she said. The only exception was dining. All the most important attributes for a warmweather destination except for dining, (St. Petersburg-Clearwater) was considered best, she said. First time and potential visitors as well as returning visitors were asked a set of questions to determine perception between the two markets. Pinellas was the clear winner for its beaches with a brand personality that says fun, friendly, clean, family, fresh, vibrant and exciting, Delong said. Tampa didnt have a clear brand, but people identified with Busch Gardens, modern, urban and business-oriented. Tampa complemented Pinellas with its professional sports offerings, its city-urban vibe and the airport, she said. However, St. Petersburg-Clearwater was better in every way, according to those surveyed. The only misconception noted in the report is that visitors dont discern that Tampa Bays beaches arent located in Tampa, but instead are across the bridge in Pinellas County. Minich pointed to a couple of events that could boost the areas rating for dining, thanks to two $500,000 grants from BP and a partnership with the Home Shopping Network. The St. Pete & the Bay Area Festival of Food, Wine and the Arts, Friday through Sunday, Nov. 1517, will bring in 18 celebrity chefs for three days of culinary delights, featuring Gulf seafood. This is going to change the perception, he said. Another festival in Clearwater planned for 2014 will center on the same theme, making it clear that Pinellas does have fine dining to offer its visitors. David Downing, CVB assistant director, said BPs grants were very specific in their requirements. Events paid for with BP money has to have a seafood component, Minich said. They have to promote the quality of Gulf seafood, he said. Screenshot by SUZETTE PORTERD.T. Minich, Convention & Visitors Bureau director, tells the Tourist Development Council that the county is close to reaching the $30 million mark in bed tax collections Oct. 16. If the $30 million mark is reached, Pinellas will become a high impact tax county one of only six in the state. BriefsShop and Stroll setST. PETERSBURG Shop and Stroll, a free monthly event, will be offered Tuesday, Nov. 5, 9:30 a.m., at The Posh Tot, 7232 Central Ave. The Posh Tot, an infant and toddler boutique, and Baby Boot Camp, a mom and child fitness program, will come together to host Shop and Stroll on first Tuesdays.

The store boasts 13,000 square feet of gently used clothing, furniture, antiques and collectables. The store recently underwent a rebranding initiative to generate awareness and to create a more pleasant shopping environment. Initially, the rebranding was designed to bring awareness to the stores tie-in with the Homeless Emergency Project, located one block from the store. There was a definite disconnect between the public and our mission, said Jannie Dupre in a press release. Dupre is the HEP Thrift Store manager. I dont think our customers realized how much they were helping our community by shopping here, and we wanted to inform them. During the grand reopening event, the entire store will be marked 50 percent off, with no exceptions. The event also will include food and drink vendors throughout the day. To make donations or contact the HEP Thrift Store for more information, call 442-9041, ext. 330, or email ashleyc@ethep.org. In addition to the new look, the store has incorporated a new tagline throughout its materials and messaging: Changing lives with every purchase. It helps our customers to realize that were not just a typical thrift store, Jannie said. We have a mission to better our community by helping others. A welcome side-effect from the efforts to create more awareness about the HEP Thrift Store and the organizations mission, the space became a more pleasant shopping environment for store patrons. Signs now direct shoppers to different departments, a TV donated by a local Wal-Mart provides a rotating stream of information about HEP and the population it serves, and the store has an overall more organized and welcoming feel. HEP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing homeless individuals and families with housing, food, clothing and supportive services necessary to obtain self-sufficiency and improved quality of life.Delk Joins HomeBancBELLEAIR BLUFFS Tampa-based HomeBancorp Inc. recently named Jason Delk as vice president, SBA loan specialist for HomeBanc.

As the State of Florida officially observes Healthcare Quality Week Oct. 20-26, I recognize our dedicated VA health care professionals for the work they do to provide the very best health care to our nations heroes. At Bay Pines, our dedicated employees many of whom are veterans themselves come to work every day at our medical center located in Bay Pines and clinics across southwest Florida to deliver high quality health care that is personalized, proactive and patient-driven. They pride themselves for the work they do not only in their own profession, but also for the personalized attention they are able to provide to each Veteran, each family, while honoring service and empowering health. It is by no coincidence that our health care quality achievements are reflective of this unique and personalized model of health care delivery; a model recognized nationally as a best performer. Just this year, our organization celebrated several successful accreditations. Most notably, we were accredited by The Joint Commission in several program areas to include hospital, behavioral health, long-term care and home care. The Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a true symbol of health care quality. It is reflective of an organizations commitment to delivering safe, high quality health care. In addition, we received accreditation or certifications from the Long Term Care Institute, Food and Drug Administration, American Association of Blood Banks, Nuclear Regulatory Commission National Health Physics Program, and American College of Radiology. At Bay Pines, as we celebrate Healthcare Quality Week, I extend personal appreciation to our dedicated professionals as they continue to deliver the very best health care our nation has to offer. I would be remiss if I did not thank the men and women our nations heroes for whom we have the privilege and honor to serve. Thank you for entrusting us with your health care, and most importantly, thank you for your courage, sacrifice, and service to this great nation. You are the reason why we are all here and why we strive to provide the best care anywhere.Suzanne Klinker is director of Bay Pines VA Healthcare System.October brings coolness to the air and the desire to enjoy the outdoors. But while walking in Pinellas County can be fun and practical, it also can be dangerous. The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater area has been named the nations second most dangerous place for pedestrians (only the Orlando metro area is more dangerous). As a whole, Florida has the highest rate of pedestrian deaths in the entire United States. Agencies and citizens groups at the local and state level are working to increase pedestrian safety by adding sidewalks and improving street lighting and signs. Those changes help, but changes you can make will help even more. Whether you walk for exercise, as a way to commute to work or school, or simply to marvel at the local wildlife, here are a few tips to help you stay alert and stay alive: Never assume that a car will stop for you You cannot be certain that a car will avoid you or stop for you if you are in the roadway. Maybe his or her cell phone distracts the driver. Maybe the driver is eating a cheeseburger with one hand and tuning the radio with the other. Maybe the driver simply cannot see you because of darkness, weather conditions, or your position in relation to the drivers car. You cannot avoid what you cannot see. A special note for our area: Tourists flock to Pinellas County beaches every year by the thousands. Because these drivers are generally unfamiliar with the local roads, some may end up focusing too much on directions, maps, or simply wondering are we there yet? to notice you. Obey traffic signals Crosswalks, walk and dont walk signals, and traffic lights exist for your safety. Always cross at crosswalks, and always wait for the walk signal. Never hurry across a road with the idea that you can beat the car heading toward you. The consequences can be deadly. Use the sidewalk Whenever possible, walk on sidewalks. You may want to plan ahead and choose the route that provides the most sidewalks. If you must walk on a road without a sidewalk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends that you walk facing oncoming traffic. That way, you will have a clear view of approaching cars. Be aware of your surroundings Distracted walking can be just as dangerous as distracted driving. Pay attention to your route, the cars around you, and all traffic signs. If you have ear buds or headphones on, take them off and look both ways before crossing the street. You cant hear a car if your music is blocking the sound around you. Although your mobile phone can be an asset in an emergency, it can be a dangerous distraction while you walk. If you are looking at your phone screen, you are not paying attention to your surroundings. Texting, Web surfing, or updating your Facebook status can wait until you arrive at your destination. Be extra careful walking at night Nights tend to be more dangerous for pedestrians because the darkness limits sight distance and clarity for walkers and drivers alike. Stay in well-lit areas whenever possible and wear light-colored reflective clothing. In particular, Halloween brings out more children walking in your neighborhoods. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than any other day of the year. Children old enough to walk alone should carry a light stick or flashlight to be more noticeable to drivers. Also, decorate costumes with reflective tape. Avoid alcohol and drugs Alcohol or drug use on the part of a driver or a pedestrian makes it more likely that the pedestrian will be seriously injured or killed in an accident. If you are intoxicated, your safest option is to use a designated driver, call a cab, or take public transportation. This could save your life and the lives of others. Charlene Cobb, community outreach coordinator for Sunstar Paramedics, has been a paramedic, training officer, education coordinator and community education specialist in her career. Sunstar has launched a new initiative designed to promote safety in Pinellas called Stay Alert, Stay Alive.

The great variation is due to the many circumstances people find themselves in, as well as the personalities of the people themselves. In this column I will list only a few of the methods people employ to get underway each morning. THE PERSON WITH A JOB. Many persons are employed, although today many others are not. If I am lucky enough to have a paying job and need the income, an effective way to get going each day is to picture myself living beneath a bridge with no food, no coffee, no TV and no cellphone. In other words, none of lifes essentials. This will be my fate if I dont stir my stumps. So I stir them. THE WOMAN. Unlike men, most women care how they look. Whether theyre 18 or 80, they usually disapprove of their appearance when they wake up each day. Their initial move is to go into the bathroom, peer into the mirror, and groan, Oh, God. Then they begin to transform their faces, their bodies and their clothing. The steps they often take to achieve this are too numerous to list. Whatever the result, these women deserve our applause and great credit for their efforts. THE PERSON WITH SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN. The opening activity of such a person (lets call her Lois) is screaming. She may begin softly, but as the little tykes fail to respond, Lois has no choice but to raise the volume and the threat level, If youre not up and moving in three minutes, Ill feed you castor oil. Here, take a sniff of the bottle! That often does the trick. CURSING THE KITCHEN. The first action of thousands of Americans, usually single men, is to stagger into the kitchen to make coffee. Upon viewing the disgusting wreckage from last nights TV or alcohol binge, the guy stands there and curses the dirty pots and pans, the dishware, the odors, himself, Jimmy Kimmel, his ex-wife, and anything else he can think of. This is not a good way to start the day. A better idea is to spend 10 minutes of cleanup duty the night before. THE ATTACKING WARRIOR. As you roll out of bed each day, do you often feel as if fate, circumstance and people are against you, determined to cause you misery and make you fail? Of course you do. We all do. The reason: we are indeed at war with life. The solution: we fight back. As our feet hit the floor, we assume the attitude of the warrior, the soldier, and the knight who will not be defeated. As the day wears on, we view every problem and opponent as an enemy to be slaughtered. This technique for starting the day can be stimulating and helpful. Of course, it also can get you fired or put in jail. THE PASSIVIST. This is the polar opposite to the attacking warrior. The passivists default attitude as he/she wakes up is Whatever. Let it happen. What me worry? Passivists dont exactly surrender to life; they just ignore it. They relax. They accept life and the universe in its entirety. They practice the philosophy of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick: It is what it is. MEDITATION. This ancient practice usually requires a person to sit quietly for two or 20 minutes, chant Ommm or Punxsutawney, and if possible stay awake. During this time the blood starts to circulate. Nighttime dreams fade. Yesterdays stock market quotes return. The lyrics to Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie enter your mind. If these things happen to you while you meditate, youre doing it wrong. You should start over. But at least youve got your day underway. Sort of. PRAYER. Even if youre not religious in the conventional sense, prayer is an excellent thing to do as each day begins. You can pray to whomever or whatever you wish God, fate, the universe, Ted Cruz, Buddha, Deepok Chopra, the spirit of your dead spaniel, or your IRS adjuster. I know at least one man (an avowed agnostic) whose morning prayer is Baby Jesus, stick with me. (He says he does this just in case.) Ive heard that the most effective prayers are those that ask for the petitioners mind and outlook to be altered, rather than for the world to be changed. TUNE IN TO MORNING TV TALKS SHOW. After 10 minutes of watching peppy, cheerful panelists chuckling and interrupting each other, youll either be bored silly or consumed with rage that such consummate rubbish is allowed to pollute Americas homes. But at least youll have begun your day.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. 9911 Seminole Blvd., Seminole, FL 33772 727-397-5563 Fax: 727-397-5900 www.TBNweekly.comPublisher/President: Dan Autrey dautrey@tbnweekly.com Accounting Manager: Andrea Marcarelli tbniandy@yahoo.com Advertising Director: Jay Rey jrey@tbnweekly.com Classied Advertising Manager: Wendy Edwards wedwards@tbnweekly.com Executive Editor: Tom Germond tgermond@tbnweekly.comProduction Manager: David Brown production@tbnweekly.com Internet Services Manager: Suzette Porter webmaster@tbnweekly.com Beach Beacon: Bob McClure bmcclure@tbnweekly.com Belleair/Beach Bee: Tom Germond tgermond@tbnweekly.com Clearwater Beacon: Alexandra Lundahl alundahl@tbnweekly.com Dunedin Beacon: Tom Germond tgermond@tbnweekly.comLargo Leader: Juliana A.

Tampa Bay Newspapers will not print any more letters pertaining to the election unless they are in rebuttal to letters that ran in previous editions.Election lettersVA employees are dedicated to quality healthcare As I See ItSuzanne Klinker Put Congress on a dietEditor: If Obama wants to get a positive response from Congress, he should start targeting their pork barrel projects for shutdown. Watch how fast they fall in line. For example, instead of cutting off school childrens meals, how about cutting off Congresss free meals, along with their thousands of aides? The cost of feeding one congressman would easily feed 25 to 50 children. Les Milewski SeminoleVote no on aquarium proposalEditor: Clearwater voters should be alert to a very serious flaw in the proposed long-term lease of our valuable City Hall property before our Nov. 5 referendum vote. We should note carefully that the $250,000 annual fee to be paid by the CMA has no inflation clause. Many of us are old enough to remember 60 years ago when a new sedan cost about $3,000 rather than $25,000, when gasoline sold for 29 cents a gallon rather than $3.25, and when a postage stamp cost 3 cents rather than 45 cents. Like it or not, inflation is a way of life, and we can only imagine how much the purchasing power of $250,000 will shrivel over the next 60 years. So, to avoid leaving an unfair legacy to future Clearwater citizens, I urge you to vote no on the referendum ballot. Bioll Schwob, ClearwaterKudos to Belleair policeEditorSeveral weeks ago, my wife and I drove to North Carolina. Several hours into the trip we stopped at a rest stop only to discover I had left the tailgate of the truck open and almost everything we had packed was gone. One of the missing items was a small suitcase containing my Apple laptop and a mini I-pad. After arriving in Charlotte, using the Find my Device app on my I-phone, I could see where these devices were located on the map. Obviously someone had found them because they were no longer along our route and they were still within a few miles of our home. After contacting the Belleair Police Dept., Officer Jeff Clark went to that location and managed to locate the specific individuals that had our suitcase. While their attitude was apparently one of finders keepers, Officer Clark was able to retrieve our suitcase along with the majority of its contents, including all my electronic devices. So thankyou to the Belleair Police Department, and especially to Officer Clark, who went way above the call of duty to retrieve our lost suitcase. We love having our own Police Department in Belleair.Landon Roach Belleair We are proud to offer a forum to our readers.

Geared toward a teenage audience and their families, each episode visits and explores a diverse destination around the globe. The goal is to teach its viewers about each citys roots, history and heritage. Its an educational show intended for teens, but has a larger audience, DeMaio said. Older viewers can take away something from it as well. The idea was we didnt want to talk down to kids. Locales from the upcoming season include Louisville, New Orleans, Belize and even St. Petersburg. Weve been to a lot of really cool places, but it was really cool to film the show at home, DeMaio said. The St. Petersburg episode airs Jan. 11, 2014 and visit a variety of familiar locations including The Dali Museum, The Holocaust Museum, The St. Petersburg Museum of History, Fort De Soto Park, and the Ted Williams Museum at Tropicana Field. The show was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Single Camera Video this past June. While DeMaio and his business partner, Joe Dorsey, didnt win, DeMaio said simply being nominated for the award was enough. The pair traveled to Los Angeles for the awards ceremony and luncheon, and got to brush elbows with the creative minds behind popular soap operas, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and other giants of daytime TV. For our little show, it was kind of a big deal for us, DeMaio said. It was weird being part of it. It is extremely rare for an educational show with a small crew like ours to be recognized with a national Daytime Emmy award nomination, but our team endeavored to make it a reality, and we couldnt be more thrilled, said Dorsey in a press release. DeMaio graduated from Seminole High School in 1994 and went on to attend the University of Central Florida, where he majored in communications with a focus on radio and television. After graduation, he stayed in Orlando, doing some work for Skyline Teleproductions and Fox 35. He began focusing on freelance work in 2001 and eventually formed Red 5 Creative with Dorsey. For the past five years, hes worked as director of photography and an editor for Walt Disney World Creative Entertainment. Travel Thru History airs on both weekend days the current season on Saturdays and first season episodes on Sundays on the MeTV network. Visit metvnetwork.com/wherewatch.php for more information on where to view the show. For more information about the show, visit www.travelthruhistory.tv or www.facebook.com/travelthruhistory.

The challenge was a contest in which animal shelters across the nation competed to break their own adoption records for a grand prize of $100,000 throughout the months of June, July and August 2013, the HSP was able to adopt out a total of 852 animals, an increase of 316 from summer 2012, and finish the competition in 16th place overall. The HSP began the competition with a strong start, with 800 Tampa Bay residents visiting the facility during the challenges opening weekend as a result of the avid community interest, the shelter also reached its July 2012 adoption numbers within the first two weeks of the month, despite being closed for two days due to Tropical Storm Andrea. In addition to beating its overall adoption numbers, the HSP started a hosted adoption program at Petco Tarpon Springs, increased retail sales revenue through the Adoption Center by 502 percent summer 2013 over summer 2012 and also met its goal of increasing its community engagement statistics. HSP officials say the facility still has many animals waiting for a good home. The HSP also enlists the help of volunteers and accepts donations.

Between 2000 and 2006, retail sales of oxycodone increased 732 percent and sales of methadone increased 1,200 percent. From 1990 to 2001, the diagnosis of substance abuse rose from 628,000 to more than 2.4 million while emergency room visits for adverse reactions to controlled substances increased 152 percent. This is when we started to become very aware that our efforts to control pain with higher doses was becoming a huge problem, Friedman said. Especially in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Dade and Broward counties, more and more pain clinics were prescribing high doses of oxycodone and alprazolam, or Xanax. In 2009, death rates in Florida for prescription medication was four times higher than illicit drugs, making it the No. 1 cause of death after car crashes. The face of pain patients Friedman was seeing in his practice dramatically changed. They were younger, and their reasons for pain were more convoluted than the patients he had been seeing. We were the epicenter of inappropriate prescriptions, he said. It was at that point that I decided that I lacked enough education to be able to handle this change of environment and patients. Eight university medical centers across the country began offering an addiction medical fellowship in 2012. Friedman jumped at the chance.A personal struggle Bagenski came to the fellowship six months after Friedman. They met on Bagenskis first day working in detox unit. For Bagenski, the reasons for wanting specialized training came from his personal experiences with the damaging effects of addiction. Though he knew better as a practicing doctor, Bagenski turned to a habit of drinking amidst a pending divorce and family problems. The disease of addiction eventually involved cocaine. With the help of friends and family, Bagenski went into treatment in 2007 to sober up. When he returned to the practice of medicine, he was inspired to share his own experiences with those who were struggling as he had. I just felt like there was this area that I needed to explore, he said. It was ... why I had gone into medicine for in the first place, in a way that had a much deeper meaning to me now because of my own history. During the fellowship, Bagenski said he saw how addiction affected people from every walk of life, from movie stars, professional athletes and Fortune 500 company executives to mom and pop and grandma and little kids. Theres no difference in the devastation thats caused, he said. People can buy more time when they have money, but ultimately, the end result is the same: devastation, ruined relationships, ruined lives, death, destruction, horrific disease, illness. Its horrible.Comprehensive recoveryBagenski said treatment at Recovery Resources begins with getting a good history by collecting as much information on the patient as possible. Its this approach that allows the practice to provide more support than Bagenski said he could do in five-minute meetings as a family doctor. Patients who will be most successful with the outpatient services that Recovery Resources provides are those who can be accountable for their actions as the staff seeks to add better structure and coping skills to their lives. Ongoing success and ongoing recovery is directly proportional to the effort they put into the program, Bagenski said. Its a fragile time, early in the recovery. Its our goal to hang on to folks long enough to get them the recovery tools that they need. The doctors treat patients through detoxification, counseling, motivational interviews and cognitive behavioral therapy. They also are able to recognize patients who need a higher level of care and refer them accordingly. Patients at Recovery Resources benefit from Friedmans long experience in pain management as well as Bagenskis experience treating chronic diseases that are caused or exacerbated by longDr. Charles Friedman Dr. Philip Bagenski ADDICTION, from page 1AHealth 13A Starkey Parkies meet for first timeLARGO A new Parkinsons support group called the Starkey Parkies will meet for the first time Thursday, Nov. 7, 1:30 to 3 p.m., in the second floor caf at the Grand Villa, 750 Starkey Road in Largo Due to a growing need in Pinellas County for this type of group to support people with Parkinsons disease, their care partners and special friends, Marcy McCall has taken on this opportunity to facilitate the group. McCall has more than 15 years of experience working with Parkinsons disease, and now works as a patient advocate, educator and research writer for Parkinsons Research Foundation. McCall also co-authored the first edition of the book, One Hundred Questions and Answers about Parkinsons, with Dr. Abraham Lieberman. All ages are welcome to help establish group goals and enjoy new friends in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The location is handicap-accessible with good parking. For questions, contact McCall at 813-985-6874 or mccall.marcy@gmail.com.DOH-Pinellas offers help with obesity, oral healthAs part of its effort to achieve Public Health Accreditation, the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) is providing its residents with profiles of obesity and oral health in Pinellas. Other topics exploring the countys health will follow as part of accreditation. The first two areas profiled were selected because obesity and the lack of accessible dental care are priorities in Florida. Pinellas Countys health picture in obesity and dental health suggests that more work is needed to meet the states goal of becoming the healthiest state in the nation. For example, 2010 obesity figures show that 41.6 percent of Pinellas adults were overweight and 24 percent were obese. About 28 percent of middle-school students werent getting enough vigorous physical activity; the figure jumped to 37 percent for those in high school. Among adults, 60 percent did not eat the recommended fruit and vegetable servings and 22.4 percent were sedentary. The dental health profile shows a need for more dentists who accept Medicaid. Of the 1,667 licensed dentists in Pinellas, 25 accepted Medicaid. Only 6.7 percent of Medicaid-eligible adults received dental services in 2011. More than 4,800 Pinellas residents resorted to visiting the emergency room for treatment of dental conditions that preventive, regular dental care could have alleviated, but which Medicaid doesnt cover. The Oral Health and Healthy Weight profiles are posted at www.PinellasHealth.com, with more information and annotated data at www.pinellashealth.com/HlthProfileRpts.asp. Health news, eventsSupport group to meetLARGO A support group for people with lung disease and their loved ones will meet Thursday, Oct. 24, 3 to 4 p.m., at the Largo Community Center, 400 Alt. Keene Road. Attendees will learn to manage their lung disease, such as COPD, and learn skills that help improve their quality of life. The group provides support, education and socialization for those affected by lung disease and their loved ones. Topics include how the lungs work, understanding chronic lung disease, talking to a healthcare provider, tracking symptoms, understanding medications and treatments, exercise programs and emotional and social well-being. Different guest speakers address the group each month. The support group also will meet Thursday, Nov. 14 and Thursday, Dec. 5. Beginning in January, the group will meet second Thursdays, 3 to 4 p.m., at the center. For information, call JoAnn Pugh at 269-1282.Interventional Vascular Lab opensLARGO A new Interventional Vascular Lab recently opened at Largo Medical Center, 201 14th St. NW. In this lab, physicians can treat their patients who have vascular conditions ranging from diseases of the veins, arteries and lymph vessels to blood disorders that affect a persons circulation. Largo Medical Center continues to recognize the need for and implement the use of diagnostic techniques, using state-of-the art, leading-edge technology, said Anthony Degina in a press release. Degina is CEO of Largo Medical Center. Some of this labs incredible technology includes tools specifically developed for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease and for use in interventional procedures that are ancillary to the heart. Some of the areas most well-respected cardiologists, cardiovascular thoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, electrophysiologists and other specialists will be using this lab. A highlight of all the new high-tech imaging is that it includes a low dose radiation viewing system with 3-D capabilities, said Brenda Simpson, chief nursing officer at Largo Medical Center. It will minimize risks for our patients by giving surgeons access to the vascular system of veins, arteries and capillaries like never before. Largo Medical Center is a Joint Commission accredited, 425-bed statutory teaching hospital serving the community from two campuses.

They want to reverse the epidemic of abuse in Pinellas by helping patients toward abstinence instead of more drugs to treat their addiction. We see a need for more clinics, but clinics manned by doctors with the appropriate training, Friedman said. Theyve reached out to local drug courts, to offer their expertise in evaluating those struggling with addiction and in suggesting alternative treatments that dont involve medicines with an abuse or an addiction potential to them. Many people in the court system are prescribed the very same drugs that theyre addicted to, Bagenski said. For now, their goal is to treat one patient at a time and fight for the miracles that are possible in spite of the widespread tragedy. Itd be nice to have a clean county. We want to reach as many patients as we can, Friedman said. His colleague agreed.

On land, the weather changes leisurely; you have to pay attention. At sea, dolphins also transition leisurely. Again, you have to pay attention because some obvious clues are only obvious in retrospect. A huge gray dolphin ascended from the sea floor. Exhaling heavily as he cleared the surface, he created a small geyser of water and showered in it. A smaller dolphin rose next to him, breathing the silent breath of a new mother. Her teeny 6-weeks-old baby squirted up between them. Schnoz, Stick and her baby ambled through jade-colored waters between islands. When Sticks baby blurted to the surface, Schnoz surfaced with it simultaneously. Experienced adult dolphins do this for newborns. It gives newborns a rhythm to follow and perhaps a wave of water to ride like an invisible magic carpet. The big bulls dorsal fin was enormous compared to the teeny dorsal fin that surfaced in its shadow. Swimming with newborns is a rare pastime for bottlenose bulls. But Schnoz is a singular bull in many ways. He confirmed this clearly over the dozen times Capt. John Heidemann and I have seen him this year. What Schnoz did not clearly confirm were the many obvious clues he left. It took us all summer to see them. Finally, though, we discovered another of Schnoz idiosyncrasies. Maybe. Schnoz idiosyncrasy pertains to his massive dorsal fin. The dorsal fin is the fin that sticks out of the water when a dolphin surfaces to breathe. What does he do with his fin? The dolphin dorsal fin is a target for toothraking. Sometimes toothrakes also scrape the narrow front of the dorsal fin. More rarely the front of the fin is scraped but there are no other marks. In a watery world where dolphins avoid docks and other things that could scrape the front of the fin, the front of the fin is difficult to scrape. Thus I note every episode and wonder how they manage it. One recent September day, Schnoz zinged past like a Ping-Pong ball. I glimpsed the scrape on the front of his fin and wrote: leading edge wound from this spring is taking a long time to heal. It is as if there is a bulge of blubber pushed out from bottom of wound. Wound is still flesh colored. It will leave a big dent in his dorsal fin. Remembering that Schnoz had scrapes on the front of his fin last April, I added, This is an example of how long it can take to heal a dolphin appendage. Does it really take six months for a little scrape to heal? When I got home, I looked up that April date. A mystery was at hand. It was soon solved, which is why data are such fun! The punch line: Schnoz had four consecutive injuries to the front of his fin that looked like one wound that took 6 months to heal! Wound 1 appeared by April 2013. Squiggly little flesh-colored cuts looked like strands of vermicelli stuck on the fin. Two weeks later, the vermicelli had widened into fettuccine, forming fleshy cracks through the surrounding gray skin. A month later in May, the fleshy fettuccine had faded (healed) to light gray. Wound 2 soon appeared. By June 2013, Schnoz was toothraked again with a jagged notch on the front of his fin as well. Was it another spring battle of the bulls? By July, the notch was bigger, deeper and more jagged. Oddly, it also bulged with a bit of blubber the size of a wad of chewing gum. Sixty-five years ago, John Lilly demonstrated that dolphin blubber bulges into and seals any breach of the skin. Lilly did this by punching metal straws of various diameters into captive dolphins (ouch). Blubber bulging prevents bleeding at sea. This is good because bleeding at sea attracts the wrong company. It is very rare to see blubber bulging into Johns Pass dolphin wounds at sea. I wondered if the blubber we saw bulging out of Schnoz wound was related to his own machinations. Did he rub the scrape the way I rub a healing bruise? Like an assembly line, wound 3 appeared by August 2013. Though Schnoz scrape was still bulging with blubber, careful comparisons of photographic data showed that Schnoz had a new scrape right below the one he got in June. But this scrape was clean, as if from a knife. The June scrape was jagged, perhaps from serrated teeth. Wound 3 soon bulged with blubber, which lasted a whole month but also changed shape over time. It waxed, waned, and then doubled in size. A curious thread arose from it like a poised Lilliputian rocket. The changes made me wonder if Schnoz has been itching or rubbing his wound, or if his own activities has created the wound. Each of the scrapes on the front of Schnoz fin healed to a little bump of light gray. The line of tiny moguls from Schnoz previous wounds grew again in October when wound 4 appeared. This new one Photo by ANN WEAVERSchnoz surfaces with a scrape on the front of his dorsal fin, the third of four wounds this summer. Like the kid who skins her knee repeatedly all summer long, are its scrapes due to outside circumstances, the kids own habits, or a little of both? was just below the previous wound. Oh, Schnoz! What happens that the front of your fin keeps taking a hit? Is it in battle, like the guy who keeps getting a black eye? Are you a rare local dolphin who goes under docks but miscalculates and clips the front of your fin every other month? Your repeated skinned knee could be an idiosyncrasy. Or is it an eccentricity?Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

End of some perfect fishing weatherFishing has been outstanding over the last week. Perfect weather and light seas allowed many to take advantage of early season kingfish and Spanish mackerel fishing as well as great bottom fishing for grouper and mangrove snapper. Hard bottom areas in 40to 50-foot are holding plenty of keeper grouper. When the conditions are right drift fishing can be more productive than anchoring, accounting for plenty of red grouper and the occasional gag. Keeping a flat-line out during the drift will pick up kingfish, some of which have been over 20 pounds and plenty of Spanish mackerel. Mangrove snapper have been bunched up on this full moon phase. Artificial reefs as well as big ledges are holding huge numbers of snapper. Chumming them with cut pilchards will bring them right behind the boat at times. Free-line or lightly weight one of the pieces youre chumming within a natural drag free presentation, and it wont take long to secure a limit of these scrappy fighters. Inshore, redfish action has been picking up as of late. Target morning low tides for best fishing; as the water finishes falling off your favorite flat right around sunrise so should the redfish. Target flats that have a distinct drop-off often indicated by a slightly shallower sand bar along the edge. The deep side of the sand bar will often be made up of sparse grass, perfect bottom for bouncing soft-plastic jigs. Darker colors will typically produce better as they more accurately represent the shrimp and crabs the redfish are used to seeing. Clear blue skies. Were going to see are first real cold front this week, and when all the clouds finally move out and high pressure builds back in on the backside of the front, the sky is often bright blue and completely cloudless. This might look pretty enough but can make for some tough fishing. Shallow water fish become very wary under these conditions and will often lay on the bottom motionless and wait for more favorable conditions. Slow down your presentation when casting artificial lures, or switch to cut-bait instead of live bait. This will give the fish a better opportunity to find your bait.

16A Schools Leader, October 24, 2013 082913 102413 102413 School notesPCSB launches website for extended learningPinellas County Schools recently launched Beyond the Classroom, an online initiative available to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week, that is aimed at providing extended learning programs and digital learning opportunities for all students. Beyond the Classroom is an online round-up of several free educational resources, including FCAT Explorer, ST Math and InSync Education that are all geared toward boosting student achievement. The exciting software programs included in this virtual world will challenge every student in the district, said Pinellas Schools Superintendent Michael A. Grego in a press release. Students who need that extra bit of support to reach grade level will be motivated and students who are ready to move beyond grade level will be challenged. The resources featured on the Beyond the Classroom site, accessible from the homepage of the districts website provide opportunities outside of the classroom for students to build their skills in various subjects, including reading, language arts, math, science and social studies. While these resources are aimed primarily at elementary students, the district plans to roll out additional educational resources for all grade levels in coming weeks. Included in this initiative is an opportunity specifically for students who qualify for free and reduced-price lunch. Connect for Success A Title I Digital Enterprise will provide economically disadvantaged students with equal access to technology that supports their learning outside of the classroom. In coming weeks, Pinellas County Schools plans through the Connect for Success initiative to distribute thousands of laptops to thirdand fourth-graders at all Title I elementary schools in keeping with its commitment to provide access to technology and opportunities to succeed for all students. Additional classes of third-graders will benefit from the initiative in subsequent years. Visit www.pcsb.org. CSB, Sheriffs Office partner for PSAIn an effort to educate the public on Floridas new texting while driving ban that went into effect Oct. 1, Pinellas County Schools and the Pinellas County Sherriffs Office partnered to create a one-minute Public Service Announcement. Our driver education program already focuses on teaching our students about the dangers of distracted driving, but this collaboration with the Sheriffs Office will help us further spread awareness about the intent of the law, which really is about saving lives, said Michael A. Grego in a press release. Grego is superintendent of Pinellas County Schools. Educating the public as a whole can help protect our students, whether they are behind the wheel, riding as a passenger, walking or bicycling. Officials with the two public agencies collaborated to create the PSA to help spread awareness about the new law. The new law makes texting or emailing while driving a secondary offense. This means that you must be pulled over for a primary offense such as not wearing your seat belt or speeding before you can be issued a citation for texting while driving. The first offense is a nonmoving violation with a fine of $116. The second or subsequent violation within five years is a moving violation with increased fines and points added to your driving record. The PSA features a Pinellas County Schools student, who is pulled over by a Sheriffs Deputy who witnessed the driver swerving across the road, as she was texting while driving. Because the PSA is educational, the deputy explains the law to the driver before giving her a verbal warning. We are pleased to partner with Pinellas County Schools in the development of this Public Service Announcement, said Sheriff Bob Gualtieri. Our aim is to educate students and all drivers about the new law and to remind them that no text is important enough to risk their life or that of others on the roadways. Remember, it can wait. The students in the PSA are in the drama program at Osceola Fundamental High School. The student driver is played by senior Zena Griffin, and the student friend is junior Lauren Quinn. Senior Micaela Ensey, an executive intern for the Office of Strategic Communications Multimedia Department, helped edit the video. PCSO Public Information Officer Sgt. David DiSano, an 11-year veteran of the Sheriffs Office, played the deputy in the PSA.Swierk wins poster contestCLEARWATER The Clearwater Bar Association has awarded Nikolas Swierk, a student at Cypress Woods Elementary School, as the first-place winner for the third grade in North Pinellas County in the 2013 Law Day Poster Contest.

Compiled by LEE CLARK ZUMPEA number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:The CounselorGenre: Thriller Cast: Michael Fassbender, Penlope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem and Brad Pitt Director: Ridley Scott Rated: R Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy have joined forces in the motion picture thriller The Counselor, starring Michael Fassbender, Penlope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt. McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the authors characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyers one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control. Told with wit, and ultimately violence and pathos, The Counselor is a cautionary tale about mistakenly tempting fate. It is, says Cormac McCarthy about people who get involved in something they should have stayed out of. Once dubbed the Shakespeare of the West, McCarthys unforgettable characters have captivated the imaginations of millions of readers. While several of his novels including No Country for Old Men, The Road and All The Pretty Horses have been turned into films, McCarthy surprised everyone when he turned in the screenplay for The Counselor. Its characters are remarkable, the circumstances disquieting, and McCarthys wit and humor make the nightmare scenarios even darker. Jackass Presents: Bad GrandpaGenre: Comedy Cast: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, Jason Wee ManOpening this weekendThe Counselor features Fassbender, Bardem; Knoxville stars in Bad Grandpa Photo by KERRY BROWN/TWENTIETH CENTURY FOXReiner (Javier Bardem) and Malkina (Cameron Diaz) are a couple whose relationship is about to undergo seismic changes in The C ounselor.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30. Call 565-0550 or visit jannuslive.com. This is Greys seventh album his fifth for Alligator Records and his first studio album since 2010s acclaimed Georgia Warhorse. This River, like his previous releases, was produced by Grey and Dan Prothero, and recorded at Retrophonics Studio in St. Augustine, with additional recording done in Greys home studio, known as The Egg Room. As proven by his previous albums, Grey is a meticulous storyteller. Many of the new songs, said Grey in a press release from Alligator Records, are about being your own worst enemy, and about normal folks pushing themselves over the edge. Greys lyrics and sliceof-life scenarios are filled with honest detail, helping to bring his emotionally complex characters to life in songs including Somebody Else, Shades Of Crazy, The Ballad Of Larry Webb and This River. I see a little bit of myself in these songs, Grey said. The difference is in the choices people make. His gritty vocals and punchy horn arrangements add even more depth to the lyrical album. Greys fervent delivery and the expert musicianship of the band pull the listener deep inside each track, making This River a deeply moving and engaging musical statement. I took my time and Im happy for it, said Grey. For This River, Grey brought the whole band in to the studio and cut most of the tracks live. To Grey, the result was a bit more like their live show. It adds so much more to the dynamic of a recording. Its so different when you get to play off each other rather than overdub each track, said Grey. From his early days playing cover music behind chicken wire at a Westside Jacksonville juke joint to playing sold-out shows and some of the largest music festivals in the world, its been a long road. But Grey has no illusions about where hes headed or where hes been. When prompted with questions about his past accomplishments or future plans, Grey lays down a little backwoods wisdom: Im just a salmon swimming upstream, Grey said. Going back home, I reckon. I dont know why and I quit caring why a long time ago. I guess there is no why that my mind could understand anyway. All I do know is that Ive enjoyed and Im still enjoying every second of just being here and doing whatever it is Im doing. JJ Grey is from Jacksonville, He made his recording debut in 2001 with Blackwater, following up in 2004 with Lochloosa. Alligator has reissued both albums. In 2007 Grey released his Alligator debut, Country Ghetto, followed by 2008s Orange Blossoms. With the release of 2010s Georgia Warhorse, Grey stepped further into the mainstream view with the AAA radio breakout single The Sweetest Thing. In 2011 the full fury of the bands live show was captured on the live CD/DVD Brighter Days. Grey has played countless festivals, including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, Austin City Limits Festival, the Byron Bay Blues Festival in Australia, Montreal Jazz Festival and Fuji Rock in Japan. Over the course of his career, Grey has shared stages with the likes of Lenny Kravitz, B.B. King, The Allman Brothers Band, The Black Crowes, Los Lobos, Jeff Beck, Ben Harper, Booker T. Jones, Mavis Staples and many others. In 2011 the band extensively toured the UK. That same year, back in the United States, Grey embarked on his first-ever solo tour, playing packed-to-capacity clubs. The band returned to Europe in 2012, playing multiple dates in the UK, Germany and The Netherlands. Grey and his band, who continue to play over 125 shows a year, will return to Europe in 2013. Greys songs have appeared in film and network television including House, Flashpoint, Crash, Friday Night Lights, The Glades, The Deadliest Catch and the film The Hoot. In November 2009, Grey wrote his first film score for the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning documentary The Good Soldier, that appeared in theatres and on Bill Moyers Journal on PBS. In 2010, Grey played piano, sang and contributed the song The Wrong Side to Buckwheat Zydecos Grammy-winning Alligator Records album Lay Your Burden Down. He also appears on Shemekia Copelands Grammy-nominated 2012 CD 1/3.Grey to debut custom craft beer JJ Grey, leader of JJ Grey & Mofro, has teamed with Floridas Rock Brothers Brewery to create a custom craft beer. Grey, a Florida native, worked with the brewery to develop JJ Greys Nare Sugar Brown. The beer will make its debut on Nov. 1 at the JJ Grey & Mofro concert in St. Petersburg at Jannus Live. The beer, an ale named after Greys grandfathers preferred way to drink his coffee nare sugar will only be available in Florida at the present time. Grey was actively involved in the beers creation. We sat down and talked about it for a while, said Grey in a press release from Alligator Records. And during that conversation I was educated on how artful brew mastering really is. We all put our heads together and then these guys went out and created the beer from scratch. The whole process was amazing and I feel really lucky to have been a part of it. In the end I think they made a beer that somehow matches my music sip for sip (or chug) and note for note. Grey and Rock Brothers Brewery will donate 5 percent of net proceeds of Nare Sugar Brown sales to The Snook and Gamefish Foundation, a not-forprofit 501(c)3 corporation that serves as a platform for anglers and conservationists to preserve, protect and enhance game fish populations.Photo courtesy of NEIL OBRIEN ENTERTAINMENTTouring in support of the new album This River, JJ Grey takes the stage at Jannus Live on Nov. 1.Born to Ride comes to England Brothers Park By TIFFANY RAZZANOPINELLAS PARK Are you ready to rock? Born to Ride Day of the Dead jam, a biker and music festival, will bring some of classic rocks heavy hitters to England Brothers Park, Saturday, Nov. 2. The main stage features co-headliners Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and Paul Rodgers (Bad Company, Queen, Free, The Firm), as well as Foghat, Molly Hatchet, Blackberry Smoke, David Allan Coe, and Soul Circus Cowboys. A second stage will feature a bevy of bands as well, including Mojo Gurus, The Stone City, Bobby Lee Rodgers, The Sting Police and Owen Campbell. As if that werent enough, stars from the Sons of Anarchy TV show Katey Segal, Kim Coates and Theo Rossi will be on hand for a meet and greet. Plus, Danny The Count Koker and Kevin Mack from Counting Cars, and pool champion Jeanette Lee, better known as The Black Widow, will be there as well. Its not only for bikers. Its so much bigger than a biker festival, said Ron Galletti, owner of Born to Ride cable TV show and magazine, and co-sponsor of the Nov. 2 event. Its like an old-school concert. Most people would come out to just see one of these bands. We have some real power coming to Pinellas Park. Tom Nestor, the events marketing director, added, Whether youre a biker, a classic rocker, a Southern rebel, an indie kid, part of the LGBT community, theres something for you. The festival came about thanks to the vision of Frank Giglio, president of Born to Ride Jam LLC. Last year, he helped bring major acts Blondie and Sublime to England Brothers Park. So when he envisioned the large-scale biker and music event that would become Born to Ride Day of the Dead Jam, he immediately thought of Pinellas Park. Its the perfect place for this, Giglio said. Its a central location in the heart of Tampa Bay. And its an awesome park. He also immediately reached out to Galletti, who in addition to his cable show and magazine also organizes monthly bike night events at Quaker Steak & Lube. It just made so much sense, Galletti said. I couldnt do this without him. We have a great partnership. Pinellas Park residents should also keep their eyes out for a special coupon mailed with their water bill. The coupon will allow them to purchase up to eight two-for-one tickets. Its our special thank you to the people that live in Pinellas Park, Giglio said. General admission tickets are $25; general admission with VIP access is $79; gold seating is $119; platinum seating is $159; and access to the platinum VIP tent is $250. The festival takes place on Saturday, Nov. 2, at England Brothers Park, 5010 81st Ave. N. Gates open at 11 a.m. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.borntoridejam.com. OPENING, from page 1BAcua, Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Dave England and Ehren McGhehey Director: Jeff Tremaine Rated: R 86-year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, his 8-year-old Grandson Billy in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on film. Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens. Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.The SquareGenre: Documentary Director: Jehane Noujaim Not rated The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster over the past two and a half years. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of July 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years. The Square is an immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces: from a brutal army dictatorship willing to crush protesters with military tanks, to a corrupt Muslim Brotherhood using mosques to manipulate voters.The PinGenre: Drama Cast: Milda Gecaite, Grisha Pasternak, Paskal Vaklev and David Fox Director: Naomi Jaye Rated: R An embittered elderly Shomer, a religious watchman responsible for guarding the souls of the dead before their burial, comes face-to-face with his long lost first love Leah when her dead body is wheeled into the morgue one fateful night. Time melts as he relives their days and nights spent hiding in a barn in Lithuania, fighting for survival as World War Two rages around them. Brought together in these extreme circumstances, what starts as mistrust develops into love, marriage and ultimately murder. In the end, the Shomer is able to find peace after a lifetime of regret by fulfilling a promise he made to the young Leah on their last night together.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

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.

For 45 years, Poco has been making music in the realm of the classic country rock sound that they helped found in the late s, one that inspired other acts to follow suit bands such as The Eagles, Firefall, The Little River Band and Pure Prairie League. To endure across six decades, the band knew long ago they needed to attract a rabid fan base that considers their music to be a soundtrack to their lives. At the same time, Poco continued to evolve and refine their sound while staying true to their roots. Over the years, Poco has succeeded at achieving both of these goals. All Fired Up, their new studio album their first in 11 years is a celebration of longevity and unparalleled songwriting. Still led by singer and songwriter Rusty Young, the addition of two more excellent songwriters in bassist Jack Sundrud and keyboardist Michael Webb as well as drummer George Lawrence over the past decade, helped to reshape Poco for another generation. The music has evolved over the years, said Young in a press release from Michael J. Media. Different band members bring different voices to the sound and in many ways keep the music fresh. History shows that Poco has always had great musicians in the band and its no different today. Were growing musically, challenging ourselves and moving ahead to create the best music weve ever made. Released this March, All Fired Up was self-produced and recorded at several studios including Sixteen Tons in Nashville, the home studios of Sundrud and Webb, Wildwood Lodge in Missouri and Sound Emporium in Nashville. The album shows a band that has no problem celebrating its storied past while enjoying every minute of the present. And Young explains the diversity of the material that also manages to stay cohesive. Most of the songs were written in the last year or so, he said. It took me two years to get Regret to the point I was happy with it and A Little Rain is a song weve been doing in concert for the last three years. Jacks Hard Country is a concert favorite weve been playing for a number of years too. The title track was a song that was written just for the CD. We wanted to give a nod to the classic Poco sound that everyone loves from the early days and we think All Fired Up nails it. Michael (Webb) has Bobby Keys playing sax on one of his songs, Thats What Rock n Roll Will Do, which is very cool. Jacks Hard Country is destined to be a Poco classic. Im especially excited about a song called Rockin Horse for a couple of reasons. There is also the tongue-in-cheek Neil Young, which talks about Rusty not being Neils brother. I dont think Neil has heard it yet, Young joked. I would hope hed get a kick out of it and I wonder how many times people have asked him about his brother Rusty. Young is also celebrating his induction into the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in St. Louis alongside other steel players that helped influence him. In addition, Young is in Guitar Player Magazines Gallery of Greats along with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn. In addition Poco boasts a Grammy nomination for Instrumental of the Year and fans can find the bands memorabilia on display at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Poco, which has never stopped touring over the years despite lineup changes, will tour a bit more vigorously in support of All Fired Up. Were anxious to show everyone that were excited about the future for Poco and were fired up and ready to go, said Young. Were hoping to reintroduce Poco to the fans that may have drifted away over the years, and to remind them of why they were fans in the first place. And it would of course be great if the CD captures new fans. Were always trying to attract new Poconuts. Of course, its inevitable that the longer a band stays together, the more it often has to change in order to adapt and stick around and also has to love what they do. Thats the takeaway from a poignant narrative written by Lawrence for the album. There is no manual for a 45-year-old rock band, he said. Long time Poco fans will find plenty of nods to the earlier sound, while new-found fans will hear the new energy and direction, said Sundrud. All Fired Up is aptly titled, relevant to the bands musical roots and blazing a new trail into the future. The songs are rocking, thought-provoking, fun Photos courtesy of MICHAEL J. MEDIA GROUPPoco plays Clearwaters Blast Friday event Oct. 25 in the Cleveland Street district.and most of all, pure Poco. Known as pioneers of the country-rock sound that soared out of California in the late and early s, Poco was founded by Richie Furay, Jim Messina, and Rusty Young, a trio whose lifetime musical journey began while working on the Buffalo Springfields final album, The Last Time Around. With the addition of George Grantham and Randy Meisner, the initial Poco lineup was set. Following the Pocos 1969 debut, Pickin Up The Pieces, the band went through several personnel changes including the departure of Jim Messina and Richie Furay, as well as when bassist Randy Meisner left to join The Eagles. Poco went on to chart several times with hits like Crazy Love and Heart of the Night, both from the critically acclaimed Legend album, as well as Rose of Cimarron, Good Feeling To Know and Youd Better Think Twice. In 1989, the band brought back Messina, Furay and Meisner to record Legacy, which spawned a few more of the bands Top 40 hits, Call It Love and Nothing To Hide. Pocos new millennium releases 2002s Running Horse, 2005s Bareback At Big Sky, the 2004 live CD/DVD Keeping The Legend Alive and 2013s All Fired Up are among the best of their career. With 45 years, more than 25 albums and thousands of fans behind them, Poco was, is and forever will be the defining voice of country/rock. Blast Friday was established in 2009 as downtown Clearwaters free, family-friendly street festival. Supported by the city of Clearwater, the Cleveland Street District and the Downtown Development Board and produced by Ruth Eckerd Hall On The Road, Blast Friday hosts 10 events a year bringing more than 40,000 people to downtown Clearwater. Upcoming Blast Friday featured performers include Little River Band, Dec. 27; Pure Prairie League, Jan. 31; Gregg Rolie, Feb. 28; Firefall, March 28; Mark Farner with Stormbringer, April 25; and the Edgar Winter Band, May 30.
