Largo to connect to Pinellas TrailCommissioners OK new trailhead, landscaping around West Bay Drive By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO During a workshop discussion Nov. 12, Largo commissioners initially agreed with conceptual designs for a trailhead and landscape improvements that would connect the West Bay Drive downtown district to the Pinellas Trail. The plans are a real critical factor for the west section of the redevelopment district, Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon later explained. It shows a visible commitment to enhancing the existing infrastructure in downtown and will help tie the western boundary of the district to the eastern side that has undergone improvements, she told commissioners. The trailhead improvements would be concentrated around Pinellas Trail overpass over West Bay Drive, but would include landscaping, street parking and pedestrian bridges over stormwater ditches as far north as Fourth Street Northwest and as far south as Washington Avenue. The objective would be to attract pedestrians and bicyclists to and from the Pinellas Trail and Largos redevelopment district. We want people to see these enhancements and be drawn to Largos trailhead, said Christin McLachlan, city program planner. Theres not a whole lot going on right now. The city incorporated crime prevention through environmental design principals into the concept plan. These principals include natural surveillance through improved lighting and low-ground vegetation, attractive fencing and signage and emphasize low maintenance costs, including durable and graffiti-resistant materials as well as drought-tolerant native vegetation. We want this trailhead to be attractive and safe, McLachlan said.

Biomedical entrepreneurFormer substitute teacher runs her own business, has helped write state laws and cleans up crime scenes By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO When Theresa Drakes adopted daughters were younger, the threat to their potential boyfriends was not only the proverbial shotgun, but their mothers expertise in cleaning up crime scenes. Oh, dont worry about my moms gun. She wont shoot you, theyd say. Shell red-bag you. No body, no crime. You wouldnt assume that the pleasant-faced grandmother walking her rescued terrier in heeled pumps had a concealed weapon under her brightly colored dress suit. Nor would you assume that the woman within questionable reach of the gas pedal to the company truck had helped write the state laws that regulate her business. But then you would be underestimating Theresa Drake, owner of American Medical Transporters, which collects and disposes biomedical hazardous waste like needles and bodily fluids from doctors offices and small practices. Drake founded the company in 1988, reasoning that somebody should be doing the neglected job of keeping contaminated needles from accidentally infecting unwary garbage collectors and curious children. Drake was a substitute teacher on a class field trip at Indian Rocks Christian School when she first recognized the problem. On a trip to the county landfill to teach the children about the damaging effects of Styrofoam, she saw potentially hazardous syringes mixed in with the trash. So she asked the manager about it. She found out that Florida was one of the last states to enact any biomedical laws. In 1988, it was still legal for doctors in Florida to throw their medical waste away in with their office waste, Drake explained. It was suggested that they not throw needles away, but for the private practice, there were no rules and regulations. Now if a syringe shows up in the trash, the whole dumpster has to be decontaminated. If its traced back to the doctor who carelessly tossed it, fines can be up to $7,500. But that wasnt the case when Drake decided to start up a medical waste transporting company See ENTREPRENEUR, page 4ATraveling wall gives tribute to vets By BRIAN GOFFLARGO Dozens of people showed up at Indian Rocks Christian School Nov. 7 to see and pay their respects to the American Veterans Traveling Tribute and kickoff a busy Veterans Days weekend at the school. The wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veteran Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., and contains 58,286 names of veterans who died as a result of the war in Vietnam. Among those who arrived early was Mike Solava of Seminole. He was there with his children, 11-year-old Madison and 9-year-old Michael. He said it was important that his children see this. I saw the monument in Washington and I wanted to show the kids what it was all about, he said. It is very important that they see what our family has done. Solava located the name of his uncle, David Knox of Dalton, Ill., who was killed in Vietnam in 1968. History is important for us to know, because if we dont know it, were going to repeat it, he said. With that, they moved into the fellowship hall for the formal ceremonies opening up the wall exhibit and the weekend of tribute to veterans. The event began with the schools high school choir singing the national anthem and America the Beautiful. The guest speaker was Largo resident Master Sgt. Ben Pigsley, who retired after a 21-year career in the Army. He served in tours all over Europe as well as Desert Storm and in Iraq. His was an emotional speech. He broke down several times as he related what life was like serving in the armed forces. When I hear about someonePhoto by JULIANA A. TORRESBusiness owner Theresa Drake steps out of a truck for her company, American Medical Transporters, a company she founded to properly dispose of medical waste in 1988. By SUZETTE PORTERAt least four names will be on the ballot for a special primary election on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, to decide candidates for the March 11 special election for the District 13 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The county has been abuzz with speculation since the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young died Oct. 18, 2013. Young represented House District 13 for 42 years. The special election will pick a new representative for Pinellas County to serve until the next election cycle. As of Friday, Nov. 8, three candidates had filed paperwork with the Florida Division of Elections, including Republicans David W. Jolly of Indian Rocks Beach and John-Michael Fleig of St. Pete Beach. The third candidate is Lucas T. Overby of Clearwater representing the Libertarian Party of Florida. Democrat Alex Sink, who is reportedly moving to Pinellas County, was the first candidate to announce that she is running since the governor set the election dates. Sink, Floridas former Chief Financial Officer, made her announcement Oct. 30. She has not yet filed paperwork with the state, according to the Division of Elections website.Will not runDemocrat Jessica Ehrlich announced Nov. 6 that she was pulling out of the race. On the Republican side, former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker has said he will not run, as has Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos, Pinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch, Pinellas County Commissioner Karen Seel, former state Rep. Larry Crow and Youngs son, Billy. Former Pinellas County Commission Neil Brickfield announced Friday afternoon that he would not run.

4A Largo Leader, November 14, 2013getting killed in the service of our country, I think about a child who is going to have to grow up without a parent, or a parent who has lost a child, he said. We have to take responsibility for those sacrifices and honor all men and women who serve. Pigsley said there are three reasons why most people volunteer to join the armed forces and serve their country. The first one is that the person is patriotic and wants to make a difference, he said. Second is that the person wants to make a life change after things havent worked out quite the way they had hoped. And third is economic: they join to get work. He said he joined because of a combination of reasons No. 2 and 3. I wanted to make a life change, and I needed a job. Were all born selfish, he said. But he said not long after a young person joins the military, a change takes place. Something begins to happen quickly. It begins the first day of boot camp when you get your hair cut off, so everybody looks the same. You get a uniform, and everybody dresses the same. Then, you are told how to stand and walk and speak and even with that, you are the worst example of a soldier ever, according to your sergeant, he said laughing. He said as a soldier, you soon learn that you as an individual will never be successful until the entire group is successful. You learn it isnt about you. You learn that it is service before self, he said. Then there came a lesson on what it is like to be the family of a parent serving in the military. Emily Speicher, a senior at Indian Rocks Christian School, told the gathering what it is like growing up with a father who is always away. Her dad is currently serving in Afghanistan. I miss my dad at most of the important family events, she said. For example, he wasnt here to help me celebrate when I got my drivers license. He wasnt here at homecoming and proms. No daughter-daddy pictures just my mom and me. He missed all of my marching band competitions. And hes not here tonight to tear up listening to me speak. His little girl is growing up. Speicher said she wasnt complaining, just the opposite. She quoted scripture on the importance of serving. If God came on this earth to serve us, then surely we should too, she said. Service is about giving of yourself for someone else. We all have something we can give. Were all different, but you should do with what you have. She said serving isnt always a sacrifice. Serving is not about me. It is about helping someone else, and there is a reward in doing that. We should look for the small everyday things where we can help and make a difference, she said. Dave Turngren, a deacon at Indian Rocks Baptist Church, was responsible for organizing the event and bringing the wall to the school. He said he did it so the children at the school would have the opportunity to see the sacrifice and potential sacrifice of serving our country. To that end there was a prominent display honoring two graduates of Indian Rocks Christian School who were killed while serving in Afghanistan. Cpl. Frank Gross and Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton were friends who were killed within a year of one another in Afghanistan. Both graduated from the school, in 2003 and 2004, respectively. Gross was killed in 2011 and Sitton in 2012. Their parents and families sat in the front row throughout the ceremonies. The event ended with a performance by the schools Regiment band, but the final word went to Pigsley, who during his speech told of an encounter he had with a Vietnam veteran many years ago. My children were still very young, and I had just come back from overseas, he said. There was an event honoring all veterans at the old Tampa Stadium, so I put on my best uniform and my medals, and I went over there. On his way to the stadium, an older man with an old green jacket confronted him. The jacket displayed his rank and other insignia indicating that he was a Vietnam veteran. He grabbed my hand and thanked me for my service, Pigsley said. I hardly knew what to say, so I thanked him for his service. As we parted, I was thinking how it must have been for him coming back after the Vietnam War. I was moved by the fact that he didnt worry about how he was treated; he was worrying about how I was treated. As Pigsley ended his speech with those words and a private, quiet moment of tears, he received a standing ovation thanking him for his service. The wall was located in the fellowship center of First Baptist Church Indian Rocks through Veterans Day. For more information about the traveling tribute, visit www.avtt.org. ENTREPRENEUR, from page 1Aout of her home garage. A year later, her husband quit his job as a new car salesman to help her drive the truck. At first I was calling on new clients in a suit and going and picking up the waste from the clients that we had and coming home and invoicing them on a typewriter, Drake said. Finally, it got where I couldnt do it all. As American Medical Transporters grew, the company moved into its first warehouse. Its current address at 12345 62nd St. N. in Largo is its third location. The small company currently enjoys the distinction of being the oldest medical transport company licensed in Florida. A lot of men didnt want to see me succeed. So, Ive proved quite a few of them wrong, Drake said. Im one of those that likes to succeed, especially when youre supporting two children. And of course, Drake still thought it was important for Florida to have laws regulating the biomedical waste she was picking up and dropping up at the incinerator. It took quite a bit of legislation. I traveled around the state, she said. I tried to get input from my doctors. They didnt want to give input at first. They didnt think it was going to pass. But pass it did. Drakes was the seventh company to be licensed under the new state laws. Most of her clients are private practice medical facilities with only a small amount of waste. Bigger companies dont want to deal with these $50 accounts, she explained. Drake still keeps a close relationship with her clients, visiting them personally if there is a problem with one of the inspections that happen either annually or once every three years. My clients are able to say, Im with American Medical. Well get the problem corrected right away, because they know I will, she said. Thats one of the reasons I havent expanded beyond our three counties.The cleanupsDrake is still passionate about keeping her community safe. Weve been called many times to go clean up needles that have been found on the street, found on school grounds, she said. American Medical Transporters regularly clean up the inside police cruisers, soiled by irate arrestees. Cops are not going to clean up feces or urine. Theyre not just going to do it. So my guys have to go out, she explained. And once in a while, her team will be called to clean up a crime scene. These days, however, she and her two drivers only take a few cases at the call of specific victims advocates when she knows the family dont have insurance and cant afford for the clean up. Drake still remembers that very first crime scene. The bodies were that of a girl and the boyfriend who had killed her before turning the high-caliber weapon on himself. The first one was really hard, she said. The blood was in four rooms. She asked her two drivers how they felt about doing the cleanup. They admitted that they wouldnt know until they got there. She decided to go with them. I have never asked my employees to do anything I wont do. So I went. I physically went and I physically helped, she said. You start, usually at the ceiling, and work your way down. Once, an employee who worked at the incinerator that destroyed the medical waste started collecting American Medical Transporters cardboard boxes and making his own biohazard pickups. The Florida Department of Health informed Drake of their suspicions. I said, Im going to find him. If yall cant find him, I will. It took me a week. I tracked him right to his front door, Drake explained. The man had no place to store the waste, so he kept the boxes in his garage, and then his own home, which was filled with cats, in the dining room and in his bedroom. The media called it a house of horrors. Drake said the cleanup took four days, a job for which the state never compensated her team. But I had to protect my company, she said.Not disposableThe one job Drake wont take is the medical waste of an abortion clinic. I do get the calls, because usually theyll pay whatever. You can more or less set your prices with them, she said. I know they have to have the service. But not in my trucks. Once, Drake was called back to a Guatemalan orphanage where she regularly did missionary work and handed a cardboard box with a baby inside, only 2.5 pounds and still covered in blood. They said, Dont fall in love with her, because we dont know if shes going to live, Drake remembered. Too late. She called her husband to inform him that he was a father. Angelina, who did survive, was their first daughter, born on Christmas Eve. Ten years later, the Santa Claus hired for her birthday told Drake she had a problem. Angel had asked for a baby sister. A year later, she got her wish. Drake was preparing a baby shower for a teenage mother with the women in her church, when the girl called to say she was leaving the state. Drake made sure she had a notarized authorization, though handwritten, to at least allow her to give the 2-month-old child medical care before the mother fled. When the mother didnt come back a year later, Drake started the adoption process. Tiffany was now as much her daughter as Angel, she said. Unfortunately, the process cost her more than $150,000 in legal fees and 13 years to finalize. Drake once had to travel to Texas to seek the legal means to retrieve 13-month-old Tiffany from the Air Force Base where her biological mother and boyfriend had fled with her. The state Department of Children and Families made the process very difficult for her, Drake said. And thats a shame, because there are so many (children) in foster care, she said. Even her husband of 18 years couldnt take the ongoing battle, and they divorced. I would go through it all again for Tiffanys adoption. I would just handle it differently, she said. People think children are disposable. Theyre not. Her daughters, now 22 and 33, live out of state. Drake said she misses them and her three grandchildren. She would adopt more children even now, she said. To me, people have babies that dont deserve them, and there are so many people that do want them, she said. Children dont ask to be born into this mess. They just asked to be loved.

Call Ellen at 584-8314 or Pat at 584-0297. The planners suggested adding picnic seating, information kiosks, rock borders, integrated lighting, swing seats, fencing, a rain garden, wayfinding signs and public art to the trailhead Were not trying to just be another one of the surrounding municipalities, like a Dunedin. Were trying to be the best Largo we can be, McLachlan said. Were trying to bring in amenities that makes sense for our area. The overpass itself also could use an upgrade, she said. The highly visible bridge over the roadway was a great place to advertise Largos downtown with new branding. The concept design suggested upgraded fencing, repainting, decorative lighting and signage. Around the overpass, the plans called for a gathering area, a rain garden and lots more trees and landscaping. What wed like to do is really bring some activity to this space, McLachlan said. To the north and south of the overpass, less intensive changes were needed, but city planners did recommend improving connection points by adding wider sidewalks and minimal improvements like a bench or a bike rack. The city would upgrade the stormwater ditch that runs alongside the trail into a bioswale. Minimal lighting and pedestrian bridges over the swale, especially in residential areas, would encourage use of the trail. Were not trying to promote nighttime use of the trail. We do recognize, however, if we put in improvements like bridges from residential areas, we do need to put in a small bit of lighting if only to show where the bridges are and make it a safer area, McLachlan said. One of the significant changes would be converting one lane of 12th Street Southwest into parallel parking, making it a one-way road. City planners said they recognized the need for parking in the area, especially if they hoped to attract more use of the trail starting from the downtown district. The area directly surrounding the trail is the countys right-of-way, and they wouldnt allow parking. Similarly, city planners said they didnt want to use up parkland for parking. Overall, the project is projected to cost $952,300. But the city has multiple potential funding sources, city engineer Leland Dicus said.Most directly, the project falls within the scope of the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment funding, and the city also intends to use some of its local option sales tax funding. Because so much of the landscaping involves planting trees, the city can tap into its tree fund to fund that part. Planners also intend to pursue transportation and stormwater grants as well as business sponsorships from the surrounding area.Similar funding sources could be used for annual operation and maintenance costs, estimated at $3,500 to $6,500 per year. The project would fall within overall plans to improve West Bay Drive between 20th Street and Clearwater-Largo Road. The city hopes to enhance the roads medians to reduce pedestrian fatalities. The whole corridor is one of the highest areas for crashes with pedestrians and bicycles, Dicus said. That larger project is currently funded at $1.67 million, but doesnt include the entire costs of the trailhead improvements, as the city hadnt completed the design until recently. City staff asked commissioners for feedback and direction for funding. Commissioners had a few logistical questions, some involving details not yet worked out, but gave their unofficial consent. City staff now will prepare more detailed funding to be approved during a public hearing in April. Should the project move forward, a consultant would be hired to complete the design of the project by 2015, with construction starting in 2016. Were really excited, Brydon said after the presentation.Largo to endorse Greenlight PinellasThe commissioners also heard a presentation on the Greenlight Pinellas Plan, designed to enhance public transportation with improved bus routes and a future passenger rail in Pinellas County. A referendum to increase the sales tax by 1 cent in order to fund the project will be added to the November 2014 ballot. The majority of the commissioners were in favor of the plan, agreeing that it would directly and positively impact the economy of Largo. I think its so important that we do this in the future, Commissioner Robert Murray said. I hope the whole thing gets together while Im still here. Commissioner Curtis Holmes said the commissioners ought to hear a presentation from the No Tax for Tracks group opposed to the project, before agreeing to an endorsement. Mayor Pat Gerard asked if anyone else had an interest in hearing that presentation. No one spoke up. OK, that wont be happening, Gerard said. The endorsement itself will be approved in an upcoming public meeting. For more information about the countywide plan, visit green lightpinellas.com. Photo by JULIANA A.

Belcher Rd. S. Kens Quality Golf Crime beat Crime beatTwo arrested in human trafficking caseLARGO Detectives assigned to the Special Victims Unit arrested two individuals Thursday, Nov. 7, in connection to human trafficking of a juvenile victim. On Nov. 4, the 14-year-old victim disclosed to detectives that the female suspect arranged for her to engage in sexual activity with an adult male for money. The victim told detectives that on Oct. 25, the female suspect told her she was having a male visitor come to her home. The victim was to have sex with him and collect money from him when they were done. Through their investigation, the two suspects were identified, as 60year-old Wanda Ann Ringgo, aka, Wanda Ann Taylor of Largo and Mohand Rashid, 25, of St. Petersburg. On Nov. 6, a search warrant was obtained and was served at Ringgos residence on Nov. 7. Both suspects agreed to meet with detectives at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo, Nov. 7. Rashid reportedly admitted his involvement with the allegations and was arrested and charged with one count of lewd and lascivious battery. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail Nov. 8 on $10,000 surety bond. Ringgo was not cooperative with detectives during the interview, according to the report from the Sheriffs Office. Ringgo was arrested and charged with one count of human trafficking involving a minor under 15 years of age. She is being held without bond in the Pinellas County Jail.PCSO seeks armed robber and carjackerLEALMAN Pinellas County Sheriffs Detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit are seeking the publics assistance in locating an armed robbery and armed carjacking suspect(s) who attempted to steal a purse and money from one victim and stole a vehicle from a second victim Nov. 7 in the Lealman area. According to detectives, on Thursday, Nov. 7, about 6:30 p.m., the first victim was walking in the area of 38th Street North and 46th Avenue North when the suspect approached her from behind. The suspect began to yell at the victim, demanded money and implied he had a gun. The victim began to open her cell phone and the suspect fled on foot toward 29th Street North. Two hours later, at approximately 8:30 p.m. the second victim was exiting the Oleys Food Mart, 3891 46th Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. The victim was entering her vehicle when the suspect approached her car. The suspect began to yell at the victim then swung his arm back, striking the victim in the face with what appeared to be a handgun. The victim exited the vehicle and the suspect entered the drivers seat and began driving westbound at 46th Avenue North. The vehicle is described as a four-door Kia Rio, silver in color with a Texas license plate that reads BJG5000. The suspect in the first incident is described as a black male, approximate age 15 to 18, 5-foot, five-inches or taller, thin build, wearing a white tank top, dark colored pants and a brimmed hat worn backwards. The suspect in the second incident is described as a black male, approximate age 20 to 23, 5-foot, 10-inches tall, medium build, wearing a white tank top and possibly a brimmed hat. Due to the similarities of each suspect description and the time frame of each occurrence, detectives believe the suspect in both incidents may be one and the same. Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to contact Detective J. Loftus of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 727-582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

Detectives suspect there may be other victims and ask anyone with information to contact the Sheriffs Office. According to investigators, the crime was reported to the Sheriffs Office Aug. 16, after adult relatives of one of the victims found inappropriate text messages on the girls phone. Detectives said the messages included solicitation for nude photos as well as sexually explicit conversations. Detectives began investigating and determined that during the latter part of this summer the girls were frequenting the bouncy house and inflatable slides on Clearwater Beach. The suspect, identified as Leonardo LopezNavarro, 33, befriended the girls and allowed them to go on the slides and bouncy house without paying. Detectives further determined that inappropriate physical contact took place at that location between the suspect and the victims. On Nov. 6, detectives obtained a warrant and arrested Lopez-Navarro. During the interview, he reportedly admitted that he had shared his phone number with various juveniles. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $100,000. Detectives suspect there may be other victims and request that anyone with information that may assist in this investigation to call Detective Holly Tsanakaliotis of the Special Victims Unit at 727-582-6200.

CAMPAIGNS, from page 1AWelch delivers final state of the county address for the year By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch embarked on a different way of communicating with citizens this year with a quarterly state of the county address made available on the countys website and YouTube. Welch delivered his inaugural address on March 27. His second came Aug. 2. The third and final became available via the Internet Nov. 8. Welch began his address by saying that 2013 had been a productive year. The county has tackled a diverse set of issues this year from revising our Emergency Medical Services, or EMS system, to modernizing our efforts to manage stormwater and improve water quality, and addressing the growing impact of poverty on our countys productivity, potential, and taxpayer funded services. Welch talked about the budget in all three addresses. In the final one, he focused on the work by staff to develop the current $1.7 billion balanced budget that prioritizes public health and safety, community development, environmental sustainability, tourism development and other services, including water quality and an improved surface water management program. Dealing with the cost of emergency management services has been a sore spot for county commissioners for the past several years. Welch talked about the ongoing work to incorporate suggestions from a study by a consulting firm, Fitch and Associates to stabilize the system while continuing quality service. Another topic the chairman focused on during previous addresses is transportation, which is on a fast track to a Nov. 4, 2014 referendum to allow citizens to decide the best way to fund improved transit initiatives. Pinellas County and Tampa Bay lag behind every other metropolitan area when it comes to modern, efficient public transit services, Welch said in his third address. Greenlight Pinellas will change that by funding a modern, dependable and easy to use countywide bus system and a modern local rail system connecting our downtown centers from Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park, the Gateway Area and St. Petersburg, with a future connection to Tampa. Welch outlined the benefits of improved transportation including jobs and new development while preserving existing neighborhoods and green spaces. The Pinellas County Commission began an in depth look into the economic impact of poverty and the need for healthy communities in 2012. Staff has been working on a plan to address these challenges in an integrated and comprehensive way, Welch said. A recent report estimates that the impact of poverty in Pinellas is at least $2.5 billion annually. The goal is to provide more effective service delivery, based on collaboration, data management and preventive services, he said. This is a holistic, collaborative approach focused on measurable outcomes and community impact. Healthcare is a related area staff is working to address. Pinellas is a great community, Welch said. But for many of our citizens, healthcare is an ongoing challenge. Pinellas ranks 38 out of the states 67 counties for overall health outcomes. Poverty and lack of access to early preventative health care is a primary driver for our poor health outcomes ranking, he said. We can and must do better, for the benefit of our citizens lacking preventive healthcare and for the Pinellas taxpayers. Work on reducing poverty and associated issues is the focus of a Community Redevelopment area for south St. Petersburg, which officials believe could become a model for redevelopment in other pockets of poverty located in Pinellas. Im excited that the commission is partnering with the city of St. Petersburg to bring new tools to this important effort, Welch said. An area Welch didnt talk about in either of his other state of the county addresses was the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012, which was intended to stabilize the national flood insurance program, but has resulted in unaffordable increases in flood insurance rates. The potential impact to our citizens, businesses and local economy is substantial, Welch said of the new threat. Pinellas County has the most subsidized policies in the nation, including thousands of non-waterfront properties. Your county commission is working with community stakeholders, our legislative delegation and congressional representatives to develop sensible alternatives to stabilize the flood insurance program without having a draconian impact on our property values and economy, Welch said. He thanked Property Appraiser Pam Dubov for her work to assess and educate others about the potential effect of flood insurance reform in Pinellas. This will be a priority for your county commission until an acceptable resolution is crafted, Welch said. Welch also thanked county staff for the work done to move the county forward during his year as commission chair. He praised the strong partnership between the commission and the countys constitutional officers, its districts and municipalities. Pinellas County works well because of the collaborative spirit between our elected officials and the active participation of our citizens, Welch said. Your participation is vital and encouraged. Welch will continue to chair the commission through the remainder of 2013 before passing on the gavel. If the commission follows tradition, Vice Chair Karen Seel will serve at the commissions helm in 2014. The State of the County message can be viewed atwww.PinellasCounty.organd on PCC-TV at noon, 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on weekends.

The Tampa Bay Storytellers Guild presents Tellabration!, an evening of family-friendly stories for grownups, at Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd., Saturday, Nov. 23, 7:30 to 9 p.m. The event is actually part of a global movement, said Ross Tarr, storyteller and guild member. Storytellers around the world participate in Tellabration! and will be sharing their art form on the same day. The first Tellabration took place in Connecticut in 1988, organized by J.G. Pinkerton, who created the event to preserve the art of storytelling. He wanted to get communities more active and telling stories, Tarr said. The idea was to preserve family histories so future years can understand what happened in the past. The guild has hosted Tellabration! since the mids, originally held at the Pinellas Park Library. But this is only the second year it will take place at Park Station. Its a great little venue, Tarr said. A fundraiser for the Chamber, this years Tellebration! features 10 area storytellers, local to Pinellas County: Tarr, Deborah Frethem, Suzanne Nelson, Shari Layne, husband-and-wife tandem storytellers Maureen and Gene Belote, Geneva Nelson, Katie Adams, Sarah Harris (ASL), and a visit by Chicago-based storyteller Sandi Sylver. Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. There will be a silent auction.For information or to purchase tickets, visit www.pinellasparkchamber.com.

Charges are perplexing to sanctuary founder By BOB McCLUREINDIAN SHORES Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary founder Ralph Heath said last week he cant understand why he was arrested and charged with insurance fraud on Nov. 2. Heath, 68, was arrested early Nov. 2 by Indian Shores police and booked into Pinellas County Jail on charges of workers compensation insurance fraud, a felony. He was released about 16 hours later on his own recognizance. According to an affidavit filed by the Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud, Heath is accused of operating the Sanctuary for seven months in 2012 without workers compensation insurance for his employees. The state also charges that part of that time he operated in spite of a stop-work order from the state. Heath said he had no knowledge of the insurance lapse and was not contacted by either an insurance broker or state officials about the matter. Obviously, if we knew we had lapsed on the insurance, we would have taken care of it immediately, Heath said. This happened over a year ago. Why didnt somebody contact us (before the arrest)? We had zero warning from the state, he added. No contact, no letter and no meeting to discuss it. Heath called the insurance lapse a total accident. As soon as we found out about it, we got it reinstated, he said. The Sanctuary, which opened in 1971 and is a well-respected facility for treating injured birds, has had a rocky financial existence the past two years. The Internal Revenue Service filed liens against the nonprofit for unpaid taxes, which Heath said last spring were being paid back in installments. Then, two weeks ago, the owner of a warehouse on Starkey Road foreclosed on a mortgage against the Sanctuary. Heath said he is currently trying to raise about $770,000 to take care of the issue. In March, the Sanctuary was forced to close its hospital when supervisor Barbara Suto left. The facility still performs triage on injured birds, much of which is done by Heath who is a long-time zoologist. Heath hopes to ultimately hire another veterinarian and reopen the hospital. Through all of this, the Sanctuary continues to operate and pay its bills, Heath said. But Heath admits the latest obstacle is making the stream of donations slow down. Donations were good until we got attacked again, Heath said. Were trying to build ourselves up and then people try to shoot us down.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COMNO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerWith November upon us, we enjoy the beautiful fall colors, trips to fruit stands to shop for our favorite apples, and then most importantly, the Thanksgiving holiday, with warm thoughts of spending this day with family and friends. On Thanksgiving Day, many of us are reminded of the blessings of our families and the many treasured memories that will always will be part of our lives. We look forward to this day of sharing a wonderful meal and visiting with family, creating yet another great memory. Yet there are those in our senior population, who may not look forward to this day for a number of reasons. They may live alone with families in other states, unable to come for a visit or often many seniors are not physically able to travel away from home. It can be a lonely time with feelings that no one in their world views them as valuable or worth listening to. Take a moment and reflect on what you may possibly do to fully express the meaning of Thanksgiving throughout the year. Can you think of a way to free-up a couple of hours each week so that you can give that time to someone you know who is in need of company? Everyone has a story and the longer you live, the more stories you have to share. Invite a senior you know who lives alone to your table on this special holiday. Listen to their stories and know in your heart that they will go home thankful for the memory you helped create for them. The true meaning of Thanksgiving should not end after a prayer or a few shared moments of thanks. Thanksgiving consists of two special words, thanks and giving. Thanksgiving 2014, let us all try to set some time aside for a senior who could use our attention. The joy and the caring you provide will leave a lasting touch on a heart yearning for someone to take an interest in them, and listen to their stories as each of us has a life story. Pull up a chair and just listen, then feel fulfilled with the gift you have given. 111413Every Life has a StoryFor every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it." ~Ivan Panin 101713 110713 Mom is concerned the bullying lesson can go a little too farI dont know about your kids, but my kids especially my fourth grader have been inundated with the bullying topic lately. I know it is a serious issue, but sometimes I think we can overdo something, and it can have a negative effect. In the last month, my daughter has been a part of a week-long anti-bullying campaign, which included dress-up days, and a five-week program called Peacemakers from CASA, or Community Action Stops Abuse, where an instructor comes into the classroom for an hour a week and talks about bullying and other issues. The most recent effort was an hour-long music program called Didgeridoo Down Under, which talked about anti-bullying. You would think we have a bullying problem at my daughters school, but they dont. Its just the hot topic and a buzzword right now. I dont usually watch the evening news with my kids around, because its usually about violence and things I dont want my young kids to hear about. But the other day I had it on, and there was that horrible story about the little 12-year-old girl who committed suicide because of being bullied at school. My 9-year-old daughter stopped what she was doing. Somehow, she heard the reporter say the word suicide and knew about that story. I asked her how she knew about it. I have never talked about it, and I really didnt want her knowing about something like that, because I thought she was too young. She said they talked about it at school in her Peacemakers class. I was kind of surprised and asked her what was talked about. To my dismay, I was shocked and mad at what my daughter told me happened in this class. My daughter told me the Peacemaker instructor talked about bullying, and in her presentation, there was a fake person made out of paper that she wanted the kids to come up to and say something mean and then rip off part of the paper. Most of the kids in my daughters class did not want to say anything mean, but the Peacemaker instructor said she strongly encouraged them to come up and do it. She said they had a choice, but pretty much pressured them into doing it. My daughter was one of those kids who didnt want to do it, but ended up going up to the paper person and telling it she didnt like its new haircut. Most kids ended up saying something mean even though they didnt want to. There were two kids that absolutely didnt want to do it. At the end of the presentation, the instructor told those two kids they were the only ones who werent bullies. She gave them a reward, and the others had to write apology notes to the paper person. My daughter told me she felt terrible. She said she only did it because she felt like the instructor was a teacher, and she had to listen to her. The instructor then asked the students how they thought this made the paper doll feel when it was bullied. My daughter said the answers the kids gave were sad, mad, angry, upset and wanted to run away. The instructor said there was one more answer they were missing. This is where the word suicide came up. Something I dont think kids in fourth grade need to know. A message that was meant to be good, in this instance, was not. I ended up calling the organization that presented the program, and they told me the lesson might have been presented wrong by the instructor. I talked to the principal of my daughters school who said she would talk to the presenter and by no means should fourth graders be taught about the word suicide or influenced to do something they didnt feel was right. This was an opportunity for me as a parent to talk to my kids about what had gone on in school. I told both of my daughters that if ever they dont feel something is right, they dont have to do it, even if it is a teacher, instructor or an adult telling them to do something. As far as the word suicide, I talked to my fourth grader about it, even though I think she was too young to know about that just yet. My advice to all parents is to communicate with your kids. Ask them about their day, about their friends and whats going on in their lives. There are serious topics that need to be addressed with our kids in and out of school. We need to be careful, though, in how we address these issues.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The psychology of life without walls: inside a dolphin fightSomething very rare happened at sea the other day. Three big bottlenose dolphins had a big fight. In every way, it was a glaring example of the psychology of life lived without walls. It was two against one: N and Riptab against DD2. DD2s alliance partner BB was not there. This was most unusual, but whether the pair took advantage of it to fight the single bull is unknown. If so, it did not appear to work. We first saw them in the distance. Thought the situation was desperate, the vista was beautiful. The sea glittered like a field of diamonds. It created a shimmering Las Vegas stage curtain against which the dolphins suddenly exhibited their most sensational aerial behavior: One dolphin leaps wildly into the sky to avoid a second one lunging out of the water beneath it, trying to ram it. We rushed over but were too late. DD2 had rocketed away to the east, leaving N and his buddy Riptab to mill around and surf a passing wave. Such behavior was out of place for the tension of the moment, and was an example of displacement behavior. In the same way, I might be really mad at you so I safely attack a sandwich. The seas quieted, but the moment would not last. Bottlenose dolphins fight in rounds like professional boxers; either they get winded quickly or just back off to catch their breath. But their fights are onagain-off-again. It is often hard to tell when the fight is over. It is not hard to tell when the conflict starts again. Round two began when DD2 rocketed back from his point of retrieval; we glimpsed something large and gray shooting past underwater. He could have stayed away but did not. The seas erupted in another round of conflict. Like most fights, Round two was mostly underwater. But you could occasionally see the dolphins circling each other, trying to arch over each other, or rolling in the water onto their backs or sides. The latter appeared to be efforts to make contact with another dolphin only with their back rather than the less impervious belly region. When N rolled and pressed against Riptab to squash DD2 between them, DD2 squirted out only to whirl around and continue circling them, vying for position. It was really surprising to see N and Riptab rush away. They left together at speed, using the classic skim behavior in which the dolphin creates a rooster off either side of the body in its haste. This time, it was DD2 who came and milled around the boat as we watched his two rivals become distant silhouettes in the diamond field. Then DD2 vanished and we awaited Round three. It was not long in coming. Curiously, N and Riptab had sprinted into the distance, turned around, came back and launched into Round three. They had acted the same way DD2 acted before Round two. Another wild bout of circling, arching and rolling commenced. Conflict is a fact of life. It is not comfortable. But there is one nice thing about it: Conflict is rare, in its natural state anyway. Constant or predictable conflict is indicative of a destructive situation that must be resolved and is not normal conflict. Because conflict is rare in the natural state, it is hard to study. Many scientists study animal conflict because people are too self-conscious to be studied; they change their behavior when scientists start taking notes! Official studies of animal conflict also are hard because you can never tell what the animals are fighting about. The best you can do is try to figure out the context in which conflict takes place. Today, this was not possible to do. The study of dolphin conflict is especially difficult because it is very hard to tell when dolphins are fighting. Fighting creates lots of splashing. The problem is that other happier behaviors, which are just as active like zesty sex and play, also create lots of splashing. All that splashing obliterates the details. I actually once devoted two years of my life to studying conflict among 13 captive bottlenose dolphins to inform field biologists so they could recognize conflict at sea and differentiate it from those other happier behaviors. I did not know at the time that I would be the field biologist that my study would inform. The feature that best identifies dolphin conflict is the tail whip. The tail whip looks like a dolphin doing a headstand with the back half of his body out of the water and vertical. Clear of the water, the tail is then punched wildly sideways at anyone who is near. DD2, N and Riptab only did fake tail whips like a guy who clenches his fist without throwing the punch. But that did not stop Round 3 from happening. It ended when N and Riptab rushed away again as before, skimming to the south as fast as they could. Again, DD2 swung by the boat and submerged like dolphins do. We waited for Round 4. But the dolphins were totally gone and we never saw them again. In a life without walls, they could take their fight wherever it led them. And they did.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

On the average, age 7 equates to 55-65 human years. Our pets bodies and organs begin aging at a more rapid rate once they become a senior at 7. What does this mean for your pet? As he or she ages, we can see signs at home that clue us in to decreasing function of his or her body systems. Drinking more water, and in turn urinating more, can be our only sign of diabetes, kidney insufficiency/failure, or endocrine (hormone) disease. Reluctance to exercise may be the result of arthritis or heart disease. Changes in appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, and sneezing can be indicative of various disease processes that involve the liver, kidneys, heart and lungs. Many of these changes happen over time and are sometimes difficult to recognize because we see our pets everyday. Identifying these signs early and bringing your pet in for a physical exam leads to a greater chance of early diagnosis and treatment. Most of our pets have been generally healthy in their younger years and have never needed a full biochemical profile, complete blood count (CBC), thyroid hormone level, urinalysis, electrocardiogram, radiographs, or any other diagnostic procedure apart from yearly heartworm testing and intestinal parasite screening. The physical exam performed yearly can provide a great deal of information; however, without the benefit of biochemical profiles and other diagnostic tests, it is difficult to assess how well the internal organs are functioning. In many cases, performing these tests alert us to problems that are just beginning and early diagnosis leads to early treatment. Early detection, and early treatment, can extend your pets longevity and quality of life. The American Veterinary Medical Association and the Animal Hospital of Dunedin recommends yearly screening of your senior pet. Your veterinarian will make recommendations for your pet according to the physical exam findings. At the Animal Hospital of Dunedin, our goal for our patients in their golden years is to prolong life with quality.Dr. Heather Manfredi, D.V.M., is a veterinarian at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin.

For years, Florida has relied on tourism as a major source of revenue, but in order for the state to continue economic growth, it must invest in other key industries as well. The Florida Legislature has recognized the importance of an efficient logistics network to job creation, retention, and the recruitment of companies from other states and around the globe by increasing investment in Florida ports and other infrastructures. These improved facilities have enhanced Floridas global competitiveness, provided jobs to thousands of Floridians and improved our international trade and tourism. Investments in Floridas infrastructure also provide a steady stream of local, state, and federal government revenues. Florida is home to 15 seaports that handle about 40 percent of total U.S. exports, welcome the largest number of cruise passengers in the world, and employ more than 680,000 Floridians. These jobs generate $26.1 billion in personal income, produce $96.6 billion in direct business revenue, and contribute to more than $2.4 billion in local and state taxes. The direct economic impact of ports will be even greater if Florida capitalizes on opportunities for growth. The growing population in Florida and in the southeast mega-regions, the latter which currently account for more than one-third of the U.S. population, is expected to increase the demand for goods entering Florida. Growth of international markets will add to that demand, especially those located in the Latin American region. Trade with Latin America and the Caribbean is of utmost importance for Florida, as seven of its top 10 trading partners have been from this region in recent years. Florida should expect higher seaport traffic in the coming years, if and only if the right investments are made in order to maintain seaport competitiveness. While several of our ports are already expanding and improving their facilities, it is important for Florida seaports and logistics centers to work together toward a statewide development vision rather than a local or regional one. A statewide vision would avoid connectivity issues, redundancies, and inefficiencies in the system. Several reports have called for this vision, including The Florida Department of Transportation 2060 Transportation Plan and the Florida Chamber Foundations Florida Trade and Logistics Study. While Florida has the chance to benefit from changing international landscapes and further domestic investment, we should be aware of how other states are developing their seaports and intermodal systems. This is particularly true for states in the southeastern region that have successfully increased their exports at a high growth rate for the past years. For example, Louisiana is currently experiencing increases that may well position them at a higher ranking than Florida in the near future. The Florida seaport industry continues to grow, as shown by the increase in sea and coastal transportation jobs since the end of the recession. In order to maintain this growth and help Florida remain a world trade hub, policy makers should continue to appropriate the necessary resources to this industry, as our ports ability to efficiently handle freight will determine if Florida will take a larger share of both domestic and international trade, however, doing so will require the right investment and careful planning. While looking for opportunities to further diversify Floridas economy and make the Sunshine State a better place to live, work and play, state leaders should continue to support Florida ports.Dominic M. Calabro is President and Chief Executive Officer of Florida TaxWatch, a statewide, nonprofit, nonpartisan government watchdog and research institute for taxpayers.What do Tuesdays resounding re-election of Republican Chris Christie as governor of Democrat-friendly New Jersey and the excruciating defeat of tea party stalwart and gubernatorial wannabe Ken Cuccinelli in once reliably Republican Virginia say about Republican chances of retaking the White House in 2016? Christie won by 22 points after badmouthing the federal government shutdown, which these days makes him a moderate. Now some pundits are wondering out loud whether Christie is the 2016 front-runner. In losing to oily Democrat Terry McAuliffe, Cuccinelli drove another nail in the tea party coffin. I wouldnt declare Christie the GOP frontrunner. As Ethics and Public Policy Center senior fellow Henry Olsen opined, Christie has a unique outsize appeal that works in New Jersey but will not necessarily translate to the national stage. But sometimes the conventional wisdom is right. Here are the lessons I take away from the voters verdicts: The tea party strategy of bucking the party establishment is a loser. Cuccinelli supporters are venting against the GOP establishment for not giving more money to their man when polls showed that McAuliffes lead was dwindling because of the glitch-rich Obamacare rollout. Knowing that Christie was going to win that race without their help, why would they not help Cuccinelli more? Tea Party Express head Amy Kremer complained to The Washington Times. She has a point, but she ignores the laws of cause and effect. In maneuvering the nomination process from a primary election to a convention, the Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote in a biting none-of-the-above endorsement, Cuccinelli engaged in an expression of raw power (that) would have delighted sachems of Tammany Hall. Virginia does not welcome an in-your-face governor. Tea partyers boast that the GOP cannot win without them. But guess what. They cannot win without the establishment, either. Successful candidates appeal to those outside their base. During his acceptance speech, Christie boasted that he won because he campaigned outside the GOP base. He talked about the need to listen to voters a novel concept. In his concession speech, Cuccinelli talked to dead people. We fought for the principles that were first articulated for the whole world by Virginians, Cuccinelli told his supporters. He mentioned George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Were New Jersey, Christie said. We fight, but for whats important. Cuccinelli? He told his supporters, We home-school. There is a right way and a wrong way to oppose abortion rights. To talk to all America, you have to start with the proposition that we are happy that women have a different role in life and control over their bodies, Olsen noted. We are a pro-life party, Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling told The New York Times, but if were going to be the party of fetal ultrasounds, were going to have a problem. Christie opposes abortion rights. He vetoed Planned Parenthood funding more than once. The difference is that Christie talks as if he knows governing is his most important mission. There are two kinds of Republicans: those who think Democrats are the big problem with Washington and those who blame other Republicans. From opposing corners, Cuccinelli and Christie fall into the latter category. Cuccinellis tea party shut down the federal government in a failed effort to defund Obamacare. That stunt boomeranged and cost Cuccinelli votes from angry families of furloughed federal workers. Sometimes I feel like our party cares more about winning the argument than they care about winning elections, Christie told CNN. Hes right. The shutdown was a bust. But if Christie wants to win in 2016, he shouldnt lecture the base. If lectures won elections, Cuccinelli would be governor-elect.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.

Its unlikely well see an end to it in our lifetimes. Heres what we may look forward to in years to come. WASHINGTON, D.C. June 20, 2022. The National Rifle Association today announced complete control of almost half of Congress. An NRA spokesman said, We now can state that forty-four of the Senates 100 members and 238 of U.S. representatives have pledged their absolute support for all NRA policies and goals. This will guarantee that no new guncontrol laws will be adopted during the current session of Congress, and that several existing anti-NRA laws will be repealed. The spokesman added, The loyalty of these pro-NRA legislators was obtained without a single bribe being extended or accepted by these gallant Second Amendment defenders. We simply made them an offer they couldnt refuse. If they agreed to become a willing servant of the NRA, we would give them our full backing for the remainder of their political lives. If, on the other hand, they chose to remain independent, we would oppose them with a level of enthusiasm that would make them wish they had been born in Bangladesh. This arrangement now referred to as the Bangladesh Deal almost always brings the Congresspersons around to our way of thinking. WASHINGTON, D.C. Feb. 14, 2018. The Pew Research Center says that most Americans fully expect there will be at least one shooting incident per week at a college, public school or shopping mall.It seems to have become part of the American Way of Life, said Lillian Armstrong, a Pew vice president. We view this attitude as neither pessimistic or optimistic. During the past decade or so, shootings in public places have become so common that anyone with a grain of sense has concluded that most citizens are in danger the moment they open their front door and step outside. Ms. Armstrong said, Whats disturbing is the fact that millions of Americans no longer are greatly disturbed by all the gunfire and death that surround us. Our media studies show that, unless the shooting occurs within a two-mile radius of their homes, the average citizen spends less than seven seconds viewing a TV report or reading a news account of the gunfire, before passing on to other news items. Like cellphones or football, shootings have become an accepted part of our culture. One interviewee summed up Americans feelings with this remark: What do you expect, when most people you pass on the street are carrying at least one weapon? A firearm is much like your sex drive: use it or lose it. Ms. Armstrong said. EUGENE, Ore. Sept. 22, 2016. A sixthgrade student at the Lincoln Elementary School has been expelled for using the word rifle in an essay written for a composition class. The schools principal, Todd Farmhorst, told local news media that the expulsion of the boy identified only as Joey was an expression of the schools zero-tolerance policy with regard to firearms. Other schools may pussy-foot around when it comes to guns, but Lincoln Elementary is not one of them, he said. He added, We began by prohibiting the possession of any sort of weapon by students. Later we added pencils and pens to the list, along with perfume or cologne that might be sprayed into a victims face during an attack. Our next step was to cleanse our schools library of all books with the words gun, bomb, shoot, stab, or pistol in a books title. Students were forbidden to use those and other incendiary terms in their daily speech while attending classes. Finally, we cracked down on any written materials that contained words referring to guns, explosives or violence of any kind. The principal said, Joeys essay told about a hunting trip his father had taken ten years ago. He could have used a synonym for rifle, but he chose not to. Now he must pay the price. If I could, I would expel any student who even thought about guns. An unexpected result of Principal Farmhorsts actions was a false report that a serial killer carrying six kinds of firearms and an assortment of hand grenades had invaded the school. Police from Eugene and five nearby communities surrounded the school, ordered a lockdown, and summoned attack helicopters to the scene. Before the mistaken report was cleared up, the noise and confusion had scared the school children out of a years growth, according to one parent, who added, But it was worth it, to keep our kiddies safe from these gun nuts.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The money would have covered the entire cost of the expansion for three years and 90 percent subsequently. Conservative lawmakers were worried about having to pay more later, so they decided that no one gets covered by the expansion now. At least 21 states have taken the money, including several with Republican-controlled statehouses. The politics that have led to the states failure to act will prove costly to its citizens and hospitals. The solution is for Florida to do the math and swallow the extreme, anti-Washington ideology and accept the $55 billion in federal funding to expand Medicaid.The Miami Herald Nov. 9Florida governors race: All signs point to rough ride aheadAlmost as soon as former Gov. Charlie Crist made his expected announcement last week that he intends to run for his old seat in 2014, negative ads against him started popping up on television. Welcome to Election Year 2014. Its going to be a rough and mud-spattered ride. By now, most voters are resigned to the sad reality that negative campaigns are a driving force in most races. This time around its starting far earlier than usual, with the promise of lots more to come.Florida Today Nov. 8Hazing and other NFL failuresNot long ago, NFL coaches routinely rushed injured players back onto the field before they were ready. Coaches also ran their teams like despots, with their ears closed to player concerns. Nowadays, things are a bit different. Sensitive to its image and the possibility of litigation, the league requires teams to treat injuries, particularly concussions, much more seriously. And coaching styles have evolved away from the General Patton-like model. But if coaches have changed with the times, the locker rooms they rule havent changed much since players wore leather helmets. The mess in Miami, where Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin left the team after being subjected to epithets and other abuse from fellow offensive lineman Richie Incognito, exposes how destructive outdated player rituals can be.

By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER Middle school can be a breeding ground for bullying, especially as kids grow into themselves, hit puberty and are trying to navigate the awkward space between childhood and the teen years. Thats why the Juvenile Welfare Board, Pinellas County Schools and Gulf Coast Jewish Family Community Services have teamed up to provide the Violence Prevention Program with the Second Step curriculum to select Pinellas County schools. We identified 10 middle schools based on the level of special needs students, the disciplinary referral rates, inand out-of-school suspension rates, academic performance and those kind of criterion, said Rod Cyr, senior contract manager with the Juvenile Welfare Board. These schools are Oak Grove Middle School in Clearwater, Tarpon Middle, Dunedin Highland Middle, Largo Middle, Pinellas Park Middle, Morgan Fitzgerald Middle in Largo, and Meadowlawn, Azalea, Tyrone, and John Hopkins Middle Schools in St. Petersburg. The JWB issued a request for proposals in 2002 and Gulf Coast Jewish Family Community Services won the bid. JFCS provides a prevention specialist that is assigned to each of the 10 schools, delivering Second Step curriculum to sixth graders. The curriculum consists of 15 50-minute lessons that focus on violence prevention including bullying using tools such as workbooks, videos, role-playing and exercises in conflict resolution. prevention specialist at Oak Grove. She said the lessons start with empathy and communication and working on socialization and being able to work in a group with other people. Empathy is huge, she said, and its important that kids can grasp the concept. The program discusses different aspects of empathy and communication for the first five weeks, including working in groups, discussing friends and allies, considering different perspectives, disagreeing respectfully and being assertive. Then the class directly discusses bullying prevention for two weeks, including how to recognize a bully and how bystanders can help the situation. Next it discusses emotions for two weeks, including strategies to calm down, followed by two weeks of problem solving skills. The program concludes with four lessons about substance abuse. The program is interactive, so the kids actively participate in the lessons, including a lot of roleplaying. Nancy Friedman, director of the JFCS, said that the program gets the kids engaged by experimenting and being involved instead of just sitting and listening. Pam Hole, school guidance counselor at Oak Grove, said that the role-playing especially helps. Fran Bradshaw, social studies teacher for sixth-grade at Oak Grove agreed that sixth-grade is perfect for these kinds of lessons and the means of delivery. I make it clear that theyre teaching each other, Dice said. This is more effective than me teaching or Miss Bradford because its kids teaching kids. Another interactive aspect is a corresponding poster contest the kids do each fall, drawing posters to illustrate problems like bullying and substance abuse. Hole said that bullying can be a problem in any middle school, but she thinks the prevention program in sixth-grade helps a lot. Its important to have a program like that in place, she said, because bullying reaches its peak in middle school. Im not sure they understand the consequences of bullying, but it increases in middle school and then kind of goes away again in high school, Hole said. To help stem this and other problems, Oak Grove assigns a guidance counselor to each grade, and that counselor stays with the same group of students, so the counselor assigned to the sixth-graders this year will therefore be next years seventh-grade counselor and so forth. So we have a good relationship with our kids, and theyll come tell me immediately if something is going on, Hole said. Whereas the person being bullied wont necessarily, but others tell me what they see. Bradford said that this and also having the prevention specialist is helpful because it gives other people students can confide in. The students are not as threatened by reporting to Jan if there is an incident or something that happened as they might be to school personnel, Bradford said. I think they feel safe. The program seems to be working. The data shows that. We administer preand postassessments to the students, and those assessments determine change in students perceptions as it relates to physical or verbal aggression, their perception of social exclusion, and their perception of social and emotional conflicts, Cyr said. And were able to measure change in that perception from the beginning of training to the end, and on average its about 81 to 95 percent of the students that are showing a positive change. Students are already taking away important lessons from the program. Quinton Leveutte, 11, and Zani Hannah, 12, both of Clearwater and sixth-graders at Oak Grove are both in Bradfords social studies class. In one of Dices recent violence prevention lessons, Leveutte and Hannah acted out a role-playing skit. (Were learning) how to be kind to others and help prevent bullying, Leveutte said. In a previous lesson, Leveutte said they learned how to imagine being in another persons shoes. (Im learning) not to dwell on things that happened a long time ago, Hannah added. So far, all the lessons they had been learning focused on some form of empathy, and both boys agreed that it is an important thing to learn. Because maybe when you get older you can have it and carry it on, Hannah said. Empathy also can help you make friends, Leveutte added. Like if you help them, they might get to know you and you might end up being friends. For most students, these larger classes are sufficient in giving them the skills they need. But for those students who may need more intensive help, there are small groups available, whether its to deal with aggression and bullying problems or to work on being assertive and confident. These small, skill building groups meet for six weeks during one class period and typically consist of six or seven students who share a similar problem or area they need to work on, Cyr said. It might be emotional management, it might be anger management, it might be that theyve gotten into a conflict with a teacher or another classmate, Cyr said. So they all have a similar issue that theyre trying to deal with. And its all voluntary... Most do participate. For those with behavioral issues, sometimes they are given the choice between suspension and participating in the small group sessions, and usually the student and parent agree that the group is the better option. Ive sat in on some of the groups, and theyre usually the ones sitting in the back of the room with their arms crossed, Cyr said. Theyre under duress at first. But you visit it later, after three or four weeks, and then theyre like okay, it works. Friedman said that its important that parents know that the groups are not just for the challenging students. Were really talking about strengthening communication skills, Friedman said. Theyre skills probably a lot of our parents and grown-ups could use. Dice added that many of the parents she has talked to said they wished they had a program like this when they were younger. Sometimes the kids are picked on at home, Friedman said. Other times they have low self-esteem or maybe they are overweight themselves or are short and therefore pick on others to try to steer any negative attention away from themselves, Hole said. Friedman said that part of the talent of the staff is how good they are at forming these groups. Because you have all different levels of need, Friedman said. Thats why I say this is a prevention program. So you have students who are maybe a little bit quieter, taking a little more time to get their thoughts together. One wouldnt want to put those students in with a bunch of more talkative, self-confident students because the first student could get overshadowed. The dynamic has to be right, Friedman said. So one group can work on being more assertive and getting better communication skills while another could work on aggression issues or something else. Each student in the small groups privately come up with a personal goal with Dice, and each week the group does a goal check. They rate their progress on a scale from 1 to 10 and say where they think they are on that scale each week. Then the group talks about the lesson of the week and ways they can start incorporating that lesson into their lives. The great thing about these groups, Friedman said, is that they often can prevent negative situations in the future. They give people tools to settle differences without getting physical, without getting verbally aggressive, Friedman said. The final component of the Violence Prevention Program is that the prevention specialist provides information, training and in-services to school personnel about bullying and the other issues the program touches on. Typically, theyll work with 400 to 500 school personnel during in-service training and will share information that the teacher can use in the classroom to help de-escalate a situation or deal with a particular problem or at least identify that theyre here in the school and here to help them, Cyr said. So if Rod is disruptive in your class, invite him to my small-group skill building class and Ill work with him and see if we can help. This training also teaches the faculty and staff some of the key words and concepts that are used and discussed in the program, and they are encouraged to use the terminology with their students. That way the entire school is using the same language and these concepts continue to be reinforced, Cyr said. The teachers and counselors at Oak Grove agreed that all of them work hard to use these words and to enforce these lessons whenever possible with their students. I think (it helps) because everyone is speaking the same language, Friedman said. For the rare instances where bullying continues despite other attempts of intervention, it can be referred to the state attorney. Hole said she has done that a few times, but usually just the threat of it causes the students to back off. All the components together are having a positive effect at Oak Grove and throughout the participating schools. Last school year, a total of 1,336 students participated in the small group sessions at the 10 participating middle schools, Cyr said. The small groups also do preand post-assessments that deal with their understanding of conflict resolution, he said. In the last year, 97 percent of the students increased their understanding of conflict resolution and personal relations, Cyr said. Additionally, about 75 percent of the students from the smallgroups had no inor out-ofschool suspensions during the school year after participating in the group, which is excellent, considering that at some of these schools, the likelihood of this group of students to have suspensions is upward of 50 percent. In addition to the statistics, there are the personal stories that show that its working. Just that day, Dice said one of the boys in her assertiveness group volunteered to participate in one of the role-playing skits. In another case, Friedman said that she sat in on a small group once and a girl told a story about how she and her friends witnessed a bully walk by and knock a boys books and papers out of his hands. (After) the bully left, the boys papers were still flying, and they ran down and they picked up all the papers and helped him, Friedman said. And what struck me was she said, I felt like Superwoman. They felt they came to the rescue, they were allies. They were so empowered you could see it on her face. The purpose of the program is to reduce inand out-of-school suspensions, disciplinary referrals particularly those referrals that center around aggression and antisocial and disruptive behaviors, Cyr said. The program consists of three major components. Theres a classroom component and then a small skill-building group component and then theres the in-service training for school personnel. Last school year, a total of 3,301 sixth-graders received the curriculum, which the prevention specialist delivers once a week or every other week through one of their regular classes. At Oak Grove Middle, its during their social studies class.

Behar is set to be rotated to a new assignment at the end of the school year. According to the Pinellas Park Police Department this rotation is part of a department protocol that rotates officers after five years on one assignment. But a group of parents, students and staff have stepped up to ask Chief Dorene Thomas to reconsider Behars move. Not only does he have the respect of the parents and faculty, but the students as well, said Elise Crepeau, whose daughter attends PPHS and turned to Behar for assistance when being bullied. He helps them make better choices. Behar goes above and beyond whats expected of him in order to forge connections with students, Crepeau said. Everyone from good students to rebellious students with troubled pasts. Crepeau is behind the effort to keep Behar at PPHS. She circulated an online petition that now has more than 150 signatures and organized the protest. Scores of comments on the petition, as well as a Facebook page created for the protest, show how beloved Behar is in the PPHS community. One grandmother, Judy Davis, wrote about the impact Behars mentorship had on her two grandsons, who had behavioral issues and were required to attend special classes. If you want a success story, I can give you one, she wrote. Her grandsons no longer need to attend these special classes and achieved mostly As and Bs. Officer Behar is loved and respected by the students and is a necessity there. Please, please reconsider moving him. He is someone they look up to and feel they can go to if needed, Davis wrote. Pinellas Park students would suffer terribly with his removal. In a day and time where young people are so impressionable and literally have little respect for police, he is your guy to turn that around. Former PPHS student Megan Drumm wrote on the petition that it would be a tragedy to see him go. During my time at PPHS, Officer Behar made everyone feel welcome and safe, she wrote. He takes his job very seriously while being able to hold strong relationships with his students. Behar is overwhelmed by the support. Its unbelievable, he said. Im honored. While the most important aspect of his job is ensuring the safety of all students and faculty on campus, Behar said he also participates in various student events, including drivers safety classes and a 9/11memorial ceremony. At the heart of his work is the connection he forges with students, he said. Respect is not given, its earned, he said. Behar worked for the New York City Police Department from 2000 to 2004, before moving to New Port Richey. He enjoyed his time as an SRO in New York City and when he joined the PPPD, he indicated he would like to take on a similar role in Pinellas Park. He spent one year as SRO at Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School before moving to the high school. His five-year rotation as SRO has already been extended by one year. Crepeau said that removing him from the school would be detrimental to the students. Chief Thomas said that so far no decision has been made regarding Behars fate at PPHS. We have to determine what is in the best interest of all parties involved, she said. Behar said he understands and respects the Chiefs decision, no matter what it is. But he indicated that he would prefer to stay at PPHS. The petition can be found at www.ipetitions.com/petition/keepofficer-behar.

Weve really been fortunate this fall season. We have had a steady cool down rather than the dramatic shock that we had the past two years. With that said its looking like this weeks front might be packing a bigger punch, with overnight lows getting down around 50 degrees, we can expect some big changes. A combination of high winds and plummeting water temperatures will most likely be enough to push dwindling bait stocks out of the area. Looking on the bright side, however, everything eats a live shrimp. Free-lining live select shrimp over grass areas with good current flow can yield a wide variety of species. Although select sized shrimp may cost a bit more they are well worth it. Not only do they cast farther; they are quicker than the smaller shrimp, allowing them a better chance at escaping predation from the droves of pinfish. Pinfish and grass grunts are another great bait option, especially when the pilchards disappear. Small pinfish can easily be chummed up and castnetted in the shallows and work great for redfish and trout. Use them under a cork when trying to keep them out of the grass when fishing for trout and trim their tails and free-line them when searching for redfish. As cold fronts become more numerous were going to have days when conditions are just not acceptable for fishing. When the wind howls strait out of the north directly following a passing cold front, the Intracoastal Waterway can get pretty dirty. Most people will agree that a north wind is the hardest to fish around here. Just because there are few places to seek protection on a wind blocked shoreline. Fish are not happy in dirty, muddy water. Even if you fish a spot that youve had great success at recently, but now the water is dirty, dont stay there long if youre not getting any bites. Those fish are probably still there or somewhere nearby but there most likely not going to bite too good until it cleans up again. Email Tyson Wallerstein at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. Fish TalesCapt.

Movie reviewThor: The Dark World adds thunder to Marvels expanding film franchise Photos courtesy of MARVEL STUDIOSChris Hemsworth, left, stars as Thor and Anthony Hopkins as Odin in Thor: The Dark World. choly with charisma a snarky sense of humor. Hiddleston, meanwhile, continues to be a scene-stealer. His Loki is devilishly deceitful. Hiddleston does a wonderful job stacking of layers of false personas for Loki so its never quite clear whether the face he is showing is genuine or just another faade. Natalie Portmans portrayal of Jane Foster is somewhat disappointing. She fails to stand out as Thors inspiration for wanting to protect Earth and she is less effective at relating to the other characters. Her mentor, Erik Selvig, is played once again by Stellan Skarsgrd. Skarsgrd provides some of that comedic relief in his performance,Natalie Portman portrays Jane Foster and Chris Hemsworth stars as Thor in Thor: The Dark World.

With ample action and strong performances, Thor: The Dark World successfully blends mythology and science fiction to craft a visually spectacular, deliciously entertaining entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perhaps a little less pretentious than its predecessor, Thor: The Dark World benefits from a goofy sense of humor that helps soften the grim aspects of its unnecessarily complicated plot. Actually, the pivotal conflict is rather simple: The Dark Elf Malekith isnt fond of any form of radiance and wants his neighbors to turn off their porch lights, permanently. And that means ALL of his neighbors, throughout the nine regions of the Asgardian dimension, including Midgard, the Earthly plane of existence. The film opens with a Tolkienesque prologue covering the backstory of how Bor, the father of Odin, managed to stop Malekith from destroying the universe with the Aether untold eons ago during the Convergence, a rare alignment of the Nine Realms. After defeating Malekith, Bor hides the weapon. Malekith and a few of his henchmen slip away and go into hiding. Fast forward to the present day. Astrophysicist Jane Fosters intern Darcy Lewis discovers an abandoned factory where the laws of physics seem to be breaking down. While exploring the site, Foster accidentally stumbles into another dimension where she is infected by the Aether, which, apparently, causes Malekiths alarm clock to start buzzing annoyingly. The vengeful Malekith awakens and threatens to reclaim the Aether and plunge the universe into darkness. The awkward exposition ends there and the pace picks up dramatically as the bad guys attack Asgard. From that point on, Thor: The Dark World is all action, character interplay and well-placed humor. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston excel in their performances. Hemsworths Thor is heroic and larger-than-life, as is required. The character is a bit of a brooding, idealistic lunkhead at times, and Hemsworth manages to counterbalance Thors Shakespearian melanReel TimeLee Clark Zumpe See TOP FIVE, page 2B Top five diversions Joe Bonamassa, Friday, Nov. 15, 8 p.m.; and Saturday, Nov. 16, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.

Gypsy Stage Repertory presents The Book of Liz By TIFFANY RAZZANOGypsy Stage Repertory Company presents the following performances of The Book of Liz: Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15 and 16, 8 p.m., at the Silver Meteor Gallery, 2213, E. Sixth Ave., Tampa Friday, Nov. 22, 8 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 23, 2 p.m., at the SAFI Space, 1714 CR1, Suite 2, Dunedin This off-beat comedy, written by the Sedaris siblings author David and his sister actor and comedienne Amy is uber over the top, said director Lil Barcaski, and really, really funny. Farcical in nature and driven by the Sedaris signature quirky humor, The Book of Liz tells the story of Sister Elizabeth Donderstock (Brianna Larson), a cheese-ball making member of the Squeamish, a vaguely Amish sect. Shes used to being pushed around by Rev. Tollhouse (Zackhary Meyers, who stepped up to take on the role just two weeks before performances began), but the bullying gets worse when Brother Nathanial Brightbee (Jordan Harner) arrives at Clusterhaven and demands she fork over her famous cheese ball recipe, which sustains the existence of their religious community. Feeling frustrated and unappreciated, Liz decides to leave her cloistered home and enter the real world. Along the way she dons a peanut costume, befriends a Ukrainian couple with Cockney accents (Tamara Spiri and Ricky Jones) and finds a job at Plymouth Crock Restaurant, which is run by recovering alcoholics. And while the play is funny, the message is just as important, Barcaski said. This play, with all its silliness, reminds us that it may be better to improve things where you are than run away to that always perfect place, the other side of the fence, where the theoretical grass is greener, she wrote in the playbill. And maybe more importantly, to be kind and respectful of the people we love, lest we lose them. The shows first performance in Tampa Bay was in Largo.

Comic, cosmic, painterly and stunningly beautiful scenes abound as the Devil takes Faust on a strange, unforgettable journey that ends in Hell itself.NebraskaGenre: Drama Cast: Bruce Dern, Will Forte, Stacy Keach, June Squibb and Bob Odenkirk Director: Alexander Payne Rated: R After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks hes struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.Sunlight Jr.Genre: Drama Cast: Naomi Watts, Matt Dillon, Norman Reedus and Tess Harper Director: Laurie Collyer Not rated Sunlight Jr. spotlights the story of hard-working convenience store clerk Melissa (Naomi Watts) and her disabled boyfriend, Richie (Matt Dillon), who are trapped in a generational cycle of poverty. Their luck may be changing when they learn that Melissa has become pregnant. But as soon as she loses her job and they get evicted from the motel they live in, their joy vanishes. Through this adversity, the couple realizes that they can never lose everything as long as they have each other.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com.

Malekith is played by Christopher Eccleston, best known as ninth incarnation of Doctor Who. Eccleston is barely recognizable beneath the makeup, but he is to be commended for not making the antagonist overly megalomaniacal. Malekith is vengeful, but single-minded. The character doesnt seem concerned about racking up a large body count hes mainly interested in one specific objective. Eccleston confines the characters malevolence to his primary goals. Other standouts in the film include Idris Elba as Heimdall, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Rene Russo as Frigga and, surprisingly, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis. Chris ODowd, best known as Roy Trenneman on the comedy The IT Crowd, has a small but perfectly fitting role. Taking a cue from The Avengers, director Alan Taylor thankfully realized that a successful superhero film cant rely solely on action and good casting. While the story is important, it isnt the key ingredient: It is the way the characters interact within the story. Taylor manages to imbue the tale with glimpses of romance, camaraderie, familial affection and humor, making the scenes between bombastic clashes equally compelling. Not to worry, though: The story spins inexorably toward a Greenwich showdown that is pure popcorn-munching spectacle. Its an epic brawl that would have looked perfect on the pages of Journey Into Mystery back in the early 1960s, when Thor was still evolving under the custodianship of co-creators Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby. Back then, fans of the series could hardly wait for the next issue. Thor: The Dark World will leave audiences just as eager to see the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The three-day event is set for Friday, Nov. 22 through Sunday, Nov. 24 at the Long Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road. Hours that it will be open to the public are Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., with Santa arriving at 10 a.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $5, and kids age 10 and younger are free. Friday is senior day, where it is buy one ticket, get one free. This years theme is Santas Workshop, and in keeping with the theme, there will be a in for people to bring unwrapped presents for Toys for Tots. If people donate a toy, then their admission will be free. Friday, Nov. 22 is also the Premiere Night Gala, which begins at 7 p.m., and tickets cost $75. Junior tickets for people age 30 and younger cost $50. Tickets are available either online at www.uparcfoundation.org or even at the door. Premiere Night includes live music, dancing, and food from the following local restaurants: E&E Stakeout Grill, En Garde Catering, Bon Apptit, Island Way Grill, Marlin Darlin, Salt Rock Grill, Salt Rock Tavern, Clear Sky Beachside Caf, and Rumba Island Bar & Grill. Additionally, there will be two kinds of auctions. The live auction features numerous exciting prizes, including a Clearwater dolphin statue painted by UPARCs developmentally disabled clients. Other auction items include an experience for a child to be an honorary batboy or batgirl for the Tampa Bay Rays, and also a trip to Miami that includes a ride on the Goodyear blimp. The festival will have more than 100 trees and wreaths that members of the public, local businesses and organizations have donated, said Madison Hauenstein, development and communications coordinator for the UPARC Foundation. Some of the themes of the trees include North Pole Christmas; Hark the Champ-angel; Christmas Peace; A Candy Cane Christmas; Signs of City Elves, which is by the city of Clearwater and its mayor; Sandy Beach by the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce; The Old Red, White and Blue by MacDill Air Force Base families and personnel; and many others. On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a milk-and-cookie bar with Santa and live entertainment throughout the day. Not only is Festival of Trees a fun, family event, all of the proceeds benefit a good cause. One hundred percent of our proceeds stay here at the UPARC Foundation and go to UPARC to serve their programs, Hauenstein said. We serve about 300 people with developmental disabilities at three different day programs. One being at the Long Center in Clearwater. Thats our biggest facility. One is in Tarpon Springs and we have an art studio in Safety Harbor called Harborside Studios, and we also run 19 group homes. So many of our consumers who receive services from us during the day also live in some of our group homes where they receive 24-hour care from UPARC. The day centers consist of many opportunities and activities. At some of them, they receive piecemeal jobs from businesses in the communities where UPARC clients can come and work on the projects and earn an hourly wage. There are also development enrichment classes and activities for when UPARC clients retire, which is often around 45 years old when they start to slow down a little, Hauenstein said. Then they can participate in numerous outings in the community, classroom activities, crafts, physical activities and other opportunities. The art studio is another service offered to all ages. We have our art studio where they can grow and be enrichedFifth annual Sanding Ovations event setTREASURE ISLAND All it takes is a pile of sand, some buckets of water and lots of imagination to build a masterpiece at least for 10 master sculptors who return to Treasure Island for the fifth annual Sanding Ovations Masters Cup Sand Sculpture Competition and Music Festival Nov. 20-24. The top four sculptures and a peoples choice sculpture will be awarded more than $12,000 in cash prizes. The masterful exhibition of sand sculpting talent at the world-class level is the big appeal, supplemented by the giant sponsor sculpture created by Treasure Islands Meredith Corson and Dan Doubleday of Sanding Ovations professional sand sculptors. The popular event also includes a beach food court, an arts and crafts marketplace and three days of live music on the beach behind the Bilmar Beach Resort. When sculpting is done for the day and the sun sets, the stage lights go up when Sanding Ovations welcomes the hottest band in the bay, the Black Honkeys to the Bud Light Lime-a-Rita Stage at 8 p.m. on Friday. Opening for the Honkeys are the breakout band of the year, the ukulele funk of Applebutter Express, playing at 6 p.m. Saturday, the biggest day of the event, includes fireworks on the beach at 10 p.m., the Masters Cup awards presentation at 7 p.m. and an all-out party starting at 3 p.m. with Treasure Islands bluegrass rockers Cornfused. The always-popular Rocket Man Show, starring Rus Anderson as Elton John, is back by popular demand this year. Elton plays Saturday night at 8. Beach goers can kick back Sunday beginning at noon with WMNFs Pete Gallagher and the Florida Folk Show, followed by the eclectic funk of rising stars Come Back Alice at 2:30 p.m., and wrap up Sunday with rockin blues from the always-great Sarasota Slim at 4 p.m. Sanding Ovations Week kicks off with a party for the sculptors at the Crystal Sands Ballroom at the Bilmar Beach Resort, 10650 Gulf Blvd. in Treasure Island, on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 7 p.m. Admission is $5 and includes a spread of tasty hors doeuvres from Sloppy Joes Restaurant, along with an assortment of beers from Great Bay Distributors. Tickets are available at the door. This years lineup of sculptors includes reigning champ Jonathan Jobi Bouchard of Montreal, along with Benjamin Probanza of Acapulco, Mexico, whose surreal sculpture Fusion took top honor in the 2010 competition. Treasure Islands Dan Doubleday, a Sanding Ovations first-place winner from 2009, is back and 2011 winner Jan Selen of the Netherlands is back after a year of new baby duties. Rusty Croft, one of the Travel Channels newest personalities, is back for his fifth year. Dan Belcher, the third-place winner in 2011, makes his fourth visit and critter-trapper Chris Guinto and Marianne van den Broek breeze in from Key West to do some creature sculpting. Sue McGrew, quite possibly the worlds youngest professional sand sculptor, comes in from Tacoma, Wash., for her second year. Newcomer Elianne in her Veld of the Netherlands brings a serious challenge for the $12,000 prize money with her breathtaking detailed sculptures. Sanding Ovations is a City of Treasure Island Parks and Recreation Department event, sponsored in part by Bud Light Lime-a-Rita, and is free and open to the public. Parking is available at 110th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard for $15 or $10 at Treasure Island Park at 104th Avenue. For additional details, visit www.mytreasureisland.org or call 5474575, ext. 237. through art, through clay, through painting, Hauenstein said. They have a gallery where they can sell their art and 50 percent of the proceeds they keep for themselves, and the other half goes back to the studio to purchase supplies. The total UPARC budget is about $13 million, and it gets much of its funding through state and federal grants and the UPARC Foundation. Fundraising is also key, and each year it sets a goal of raising about $100,000 from the Festival of Trees. This year, UPARC has something else to celebrate in addition to the start of the holidays and the funds raised. This year for the Premiere Night, were celebrating UPARCs 50th anniversary, Hauenstein said. Its 50 years of service to people with developmental disabilities, and its pretty incredible that its been around as long as this and never discontinued services and has changed the lives of a lot of people. The executive director of UPARC will receive an award on Premiere night in addition to the rest of the festivities.

The show runs through Jan. 8. Numerous awards, workshops, and teaching experience give us accomplished artist Adamo, whose fine art treats us to watercolors Serving Time, a masterful application of reflections, and Buttercup, one of her many visits with a tree climbing friend. Mixed media Maya, overseer of King Tuts treasure and a glowing Aged in Oak give us harmonious palettes of color. Chase, a commercial artist and teacher, tries to infuse her art with the sheer exhilaration of the journey. Working with ink on canvas, she brings us aboard with Sunflowers, washed in a dazzling display of saturated hues. Her sensitivity to color and technique spills into Sunshine on a Stem and The Blaze of Trumpets. Composition complements form in Angel Trumpet. A people person and music lover, primarily self-taught artist Franks, with banjo and sketchbook in hand, gleans inspiration for her work from the art of living. ST. PETERSBURG A conversation with Christopher Still will be presented Tuesday, Nov. 19, 6:30 p.m., at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE. This Collectors Circle Lecture, sponsored by Northern Trust, is free and open to the public. Still is a quintessential Florida artist, as he paints about the state he loves. The conversation will offer a rare glimpse into his inspiration and work. A native of the Tampa Bay area, Still received a full scholarship through a national competition to attend the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he received his bachelors degree in fine arts. While there, he was recognized for outstanding accomplishment in painting and received the Pennsylvania Governors Award for fine art. He also took courses in human anatomy at Jefferson Medical School and completed an apprenticeship in Florence, Italy. Still returned to Tampa Bay in 1986 and has a studio in Tarpon Springs. He is represented in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Florida Governors Mansion, and the Polk Museum of Art, among others. His painting, Orchids (1991), which seems to burst from the frame, is part of the MFA collection. His work has been part of exhibitions at museums around the state and across the country. His commissions have encompassed paintings for St. Petersburg City Hall, 10 murals for Floridas House of Representatives, and the official portrait of legendary Gov. Lawton Chiles. He also created a large-scale painting and sculpture for the Tampa International Airport and the 25th anniversary painting for Ruth Eckerd Hall. In 2010, he was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame at 49, the youngest ever to receive this distinction. Call 896-2667 or visit www.fine-arts.org.

Look for links to the online calendars in the left column. Her work shines in acrylics Memories, a once upon a time entrance into the Cole Brothers Circus, and Cabin in the Gardens. A pen and ink sketch of Lawrence Olivier in The Legend and a striking pastel Warrior showcase her versatility. Award winning pastel portrait artist Marsh attempts to capture that illusive spirit which breathes life into her work, as in a glowing Lady with a Fan, after the French Impressionist Renoir. With subtle strokes, she creates a comely, daydreaming Nicole. Young Man reflects layers of prismatic hues. Vibrant complements spark the mood of Fed Up in D.C.? Acrylic artist Vanasse, who teaches our Bay Pines Center veterans, gives us with a limited palette, a thought provoking The Door. Strong values and dynamic composition energize Tampa Bay Lights in contrast to Fisherman, a placid scene filled with soft transparent layers of color. A unique textured effect, combining forest debris with acrylics, adds to the chill of a winter Forest. The Treasure Island Community Center is located on 106th Avenue just east of Gulf Boulevard. Call 547-4575 for hours of operation. The Treasure Island Art Guilds holiday art show includes Serving Time by Eleanor Adamo, shown at top left, Warrior by Diann Franks, shown above, and Sunflowers by Pat Chase, shown at left.

It isnt the first time West Coast Players has staged a musical, but it isnt something the theater is necessarily known for doing on a regular basis. WCP is known for taking chances, though and for bringing to the stage productions that are at times bold, often unconventional and sometimes a bit cheeky. The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) fits that last descriptor perfectly and, as such, is a perfect fit for WCP. The show runs through Nov. 24 at West Coast Players, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call 437-2363 or visit www.wcplayers.org. Be forewarned: Theres little spectacle in The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) instead, its all about melodic parodies. The stage is sparsely adorned with only rudimentary props. The recurring melodramatic plot is drolly simplistic. The show is a clever concoction written by composer Eric Rockwell and lyricist Joanne Bogart. The two take to task some of the true titans of musical theater, lampooning their signature styles. Their targets include Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and John Kander and Fred Ebb. Back in 2005, I saw this show in New York in a tiny off-Broadway theater, writes director Domenic Bisesti in his message to the audience. Having grown up loving musicals, all the references and one-liners made a night full of memories and recollections. I hope that we are recreating the magic I felt all those years ago. Bisesti and his fine cast do more than just evoke memories. WCPs production of The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is wildly entertaining, full of zany characters and affectionate satire. The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is divided into five minimusicals, each revolving around the same story but boasting a different musical style. The story is about a young woman the ingnue who cant pay her rent. The villain is a dastardly landlord. Theres a hero, of course, as well as a matron an older woman who offers advice of varying value to the leading lady. Amy Dobbert plays the ingnue. Dobbert recently won a STAR Award for Favorite Actress in Musical for her performance in Eight OClock Theatres production of Forbidden Broadway, another show that lampoons Broadways greatest musical legends. In this production, she is just as enjoyable and effective. In her role, Dobbert has a wide array of personalities to portray, from the unsophisticated June in Corn, in the style of Rodgers and Hammerstein, to the wicked Juny in Speakeasy, in the style of Kander and Ebb. The matron is portrayed by Susan Jones Williams. Williams has apparently been away from the stage for some time. She pursued a full time career as a vocalist, raised a family and sang at the Wine Cellar for 16 years. In this production of The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), she gives little doubt that she still has what it takes to make it in theater. Brian Chunn does a great job depicting the multiple faces of the storys hero. In Corn, he is hysterically goofy as Big Willy and blissfully brooding in A Little Complex, in the style of Stephen Sondheim. Dave Russells villain is consistently naughty, ranging from devious to criminally insane depending upon the sequence. Russell serves up a hilariously twisted phantom of the opera and a thoroughly naughty and multilingual cabaret master of ceremonies in Speakeasy. Bisesti is omnipresent, acting as narrator. Hes particularly playful with his cast (and with Eriene LeGendre, the shows musical director and pianist), which is a constant reminder that the The Musical of Musical (The Musical!) exists to poke fun at the genre as well as those who perpetuate it. The final number, Done, even sends up the audience to some degree. Even though its a parody, the show is demanding: The cast proves its versatility crafting different aspects of the archetypes. Each member possesses spot-on comic timing. As vocalists, they all do a marvelous job. The wonderfully overstated characters and inspired comical lyrics simultaneously satirize and pay homage to Broadways musical icons. Granted, those not familiar with the source material may not get all the references but The Musical of Musicals (The Musical) is still witty enough with its discordant puns and comical caricatures to induce plenty of laughs. The show is delectable silliness and classy spoof a fun treat featuring some very talented individuals.

Caillat has sold more than six million albums worldwide and more than 10 million singles. The Goo Goo Dolls made their mark 20 years ago and recently released their latest album, Magnetic.

Iris was ranked No. 1 on Billboards Top 100 Pop Songs 1992-2012 chart last October.

Band members are primary singer, songwriter and guitarist John Rzeznik, bassist Robby Takas and drummer Mike Malinin.

The single, Over My Head (Cable Car), became a Top 10 hit in the United States, and the release of their second single, How to Save a Life, brought them worldwide fame.

Largo to connect to Pinellas TrailCommissioners OK new trailhead, landscaping around West Bay Drive By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO During a workshop discussion Nov. 12, Largo commissioners initially agreed with conceptual designs for a trailhead and landscape improvements that would connect the West Bay Drive downtown district to the Pinellas Trail. The plans are a real critical factor for the west section of the redevelopment district, Economic Development Manager Teresa Brydon later explained. It shows a visible commitment to enhancing the existing infrastructure in downtown and will help tie the western boundary of the district to the eastern side that has undergone improvements, she told commissioners. The trailhead improvements would be concentrated around Pinellas Trail overpass over West Bay Drive, but would include landscaping, street parking and pedestrian bridges over stormwater ditches as far north as Fourth Street Northwest and as far south as Washington Avenue. The objective would be to attract pedestrians and bicyclists to and from the Pinellas Trail and Largos redevelopment district. We want people to see these enhancements and be drawn to Largos trailhead, said Christin McLachlan, city program planner. Theres not a whole lot going on right now. The city incorporated crime prevention through environmental design principals into the concept plan. These principals include natural surveillance through improved lighting and low-ground vegetation, attractive fencing and signage and emphasize low maintenance costs, including durable and graffiti-resistant materials as well as drought-tolerant native vegetation. We want this trailhead to be attractive and safe, McLachlan said. Holiday Lights opens to VIPsThe Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation is hosting a VIP preview of the 2013 Holiday Lights in the Gardens on Friday, Nov. 22, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Guests will be the first to stroll through this years display of more than 750,000 twinkling lights and holiday decorations while enjoying live musical entertainment and a tempting array of food and cocktails. ...

Biomedical entrepreneurFormer substitute teacher runs her own business, has helped write state laws and cleans up crime scenes By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO When Theresa Drakes adopted daughters were younger, the threat to their potential boyfriends was not only the proverbial shotgun, but their mothers expertise in cleaning up crime scenes. Oh, dont worry about my moms gun. She wont shoot you, theyd say. Shell red-bag you. No body, no crime. You wouldnt assume that the pleasant-faced grandmother walking her rescued terrier in heeled pumps had a concealed weapon under her brightly colored dress suit. Nor would you assume that the woman within questionable reach of the gas pedal to the company truck had helped write the state laws that regulate her business. But then you would be underestimating Theresa Drake, owner of American Medical Transporters, which collects and disposes biomedical hazardous waste like needles and bodily fluids from doctors offices and small practices. Drake founded the company in 1988, reasoning that somebody should be doing the neglected job of keeping contaminated needles from accidentally infecting unwary garbage collectors and curious children. Drake was a substitute teacher on a class field trip at Indian Rocks Christian School when she first recognized the problem. On a trip to the county landfill to teach the children about the damaging effects of Styrofoam, she saw potentially hazardous syringes mixed in with the trash. So she asked the manager about it. She found out that Florida was one of the last states to enact any biomedical laws. In 1988, it was still legal for doctors in Florida to throw their medical waste away in with their office waste, Drake explained. It was suggested that they not throw needles away, but for the private practice, there were no rules and regulations. Now if a syringe shows up in the trash, the whole dumpster has to be decontaminated. If its traced back to the doctor who carelessly tossed it, fines can be up to $7,500. But that wasnt the case when Drake decided to start up a medical waste transporting company See ENTREPRENEUR, page 4ATraveling wall gives tribute to vets By BRIAN GOFFLARGO Dozens of people showed up at Indian Rocks Christian School Nov. 7 to see and pay their respects to the American Veterans Traveling Tribute and kickoff a busy Veterans Days weekend at the school. The wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veteran Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., and contains 58,286 names of veterans who died as a result of the war in Vietnam. Among those who arrived early was Mike Solava of Seminole. He was there with his children, 11-year-old Madison and 9-year-old Michael. He said it was important that his children see this. I saw the monument in Washington and I wanted to show the kids what it was all about, he said. It is very important that they see what our family has done. Solava located the name of his uncle, David Knox of Dalton, Ill., who was killed in Vietnam in 1968. History is important for us to know, because if we dont know it, were going to repeat it, he said. With that, they moved into the fellowship hall for the formal ceremonies opening up the wall exhibit and the weekend of tribute to veterans. The event began with the schools high school choir singing the national anthem and America the Beautiful. The guest speaker was Largo resident Master Sgt. Ben Pigsley, who retired after a 21-year career in the Army. He served in tours all over Europe as well as Desert Storm and in Iraq. His was an emotional speech. He broke down several times as he related what life was like serving in the armed forces. When I hear about someonePhoto by JULIANA A.

Sink, Floridas former Chief Financial Officer, made her announcement Oct. 30.

4A Largo Leader, November 14, 2013getting killed in the service of our country, I think about a child who is going to have to grow up without a parent, or a parent who has lost a child, he said. We have to take responsibility for those sacrifices and honor all men and women who serve. Pigsley said there are three reasons why most people volunteer to join the armed forces and serve their country. The first one is that the person is patriotic and wants to make a difference, he said. Second is that the person wants to make a life change after things havent worked out quite the way they had hoped. And third is economic: they join to get work. He said he joined because of a combination of reasons No. 2 and 3. I wanted to make a life change, and I needed a job. Were all born selfish, he said. But he said not long after a young person joins the military, a change takes place. Something begins to happen quickly. It begins the first day of boot camp when you get your hair cut off, so everybody looks the same. You get a uniform, and everybody dresses the same. Then, you are told how to stand and walk and speak and even with that, you are the worst example of a soldier ever, according to your sergeant, he said laughing. He said as a soldier, you soon learn that you as an individual will never be successful until the entire group is successful. You learn it isnt about you. You learn that it is service before self, he said. Then there came a lesson on what it is like to be the family of a parent serving in the military. Emily Speicher, a senior at Indian Rocks Christian School, told the gathering what it is like growing up with a father who is always away. Her dad is currently serving in Afghanistan. I miss my dad at most of the important family events, she said. For example, he wasnt here to help me celebrate when I got my drivers license. He wasnt here at homecoming and proms. No daughter-daddy pictures just my mom and me. He missed all of my marching band competitions. And hes not here tonight to tear up listening to me speak. His little girl is growing up. Speicher said she wasnt complaining, just the opposite. She quoted scripture on the importance of serving. If God came on this earth to serve us, then surely we should too, she said. Service is about giving of yourself for someone else. We all have something we can give. Were all different, but you should do with what you have. She said serving isnt always a sacrifice. Serving is not about me. It is about helping someone else, and there is a reward in doing that. We should look for the small everyday things where we can help and make a difference, she said. Dave Turngren, a deacon at Indian Rocks Baptist Church, was responsible for organizing the event and bringing the wall to the school. He said he did it so the children at the school would have the opportunity to see the sacrifice and potential sacrifice of serving our country. To that end there was a prominent display honoring two graduates of Indian Rocks Christian School who were killed while serving in Afghanistan. Cpl. Frank Gross and Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton were friends who were killed within a year of one another in Afghanistan. Both graduated from the school, in 2003 and 2004, respectively. Gross was killed in 2011 and Sitton in 2012. Their parents and families sat in the front row throughout the ceremonies. The event ended with a performance by the schools Regiment band, but the final word went to Pigsley, who during his speech told of an encounter he had with a Vietnam veteran many years ago. My children were still very young, and I had just come back from overseas, he said. There was an event honoring all veterans at the old Tampa Stadium, so I put on my best uniform and my medals, and I went over there. On his way to the stadium, an older man with an old green jacket confronted him. The jacket displayed his rank and other insignia indicating that he was a Vietnam veteran. He grabbed my hand and thanked me for my service, Pigsley said. I hardly knew what to say, so I thanked him for his service. As we parted, I was thinking how it must have been for him coming back after the Vietnam War. I was moved by the fact that he didnt worry about how he was treated; he was worrying about how I was treated. As Pigsley ended his speech with those words and a private, quiet moment of tears, he received a standing ovation thanking him for his service. The wall was located in the fellowship center of First Baptist Church Indian Rocks through Veterans Day. For more information about the traveling tribute, visit www.avtt.org. ENTREPRENEUR, from page 1Aout of her home garage. A year later, her husband quit his job as a new car salesman to help her drive the truck. At first I was calling on new clients in a suit and going and picking up the waste from the clients that we had and coming home and invoicing them on a typewriter, Drake said. Finally, it got where I couldnt do it all. As American Medical Transporters grew, the company moved into its first warehouse. Its current address at 12345 62nd St. N. in Largo is its third location. The small company currently enjoys the distinction of being the oldest medical transport company licensed in Florida. A lot of men didnt want to see me succeed. So, Ive proved quite a few of them wrong, Drake said. Im one of those that likes to succeed, especially when youre supporting two children. And of course, Drake still thought it was important for Florida to have laws regulating the biomedical waste she was picking up and dropping up at the incinerator. It took quite a bit of legislation. I traveled around the state, she said. I tried to get input from my doctors. They didnt want to give input at first. They didnt think it was going to pass. But pass it did. Drakes was the seventh company to be licensed under the new state laws. Most of her clients are private practice medical facilities with only a small amount of waste. Bigger companies dont want to deal with these $50 accounts, she explained. Drake still keeps a close relationship with her clients, visiting them personally if there is a problem with one of the inspections that happen either annually or once every three years. My clients are able to say, Im with American Medical. Well get the problem corrected right away, because they know I will, she said. Thats one of the reasons I havent expanded beyond our three counties.The cleanupsDrake is still passionate about keeping her community safe. Weve been called many times to go clean up needles that have been found on the street, found on school grounds, she said. American Medical Transporters regularly clean up the inside police cruisers, soiled by irate arrestees. Cops are not going to clean up feces or urine. Theyre not just going to do it. So my guys have to go out, she explained. And once in a while, her team will be called to clean up a crime scene. These days, however, she and her two drivers only take a few cases at the call of specific victims advocates when she knows the family dont have insurance and cant afford for the clean up. Drake still remembers that very first crime scene. The bodies were that of a girl and the boyfriend who had killed her before turning the high-caliber weapon on himself. The first one was really hard, she said. The blood was in four rooms. She asked her two drivers how they felt about doing the cleanup. They admitted that they wouldnt know until they got there. She decided to go with them. I have never asked my employees to do anything I wont do. So I went. I physically went and I physically helped, she said. You start, usually at the ceiling, and work your way down. Once, an employee who worked at the incinerator that destroyed the medical waste started collecting American Medical Transporters cardboard boxes and making his own biohazard pickups. The Florida Department of Health informed Drake of their suspicions. I said, Im going to find him. If yall cant find him, I will. It took me a week. I tracked him right to his front door, Drake explained. The man had no place to store the waste, so he kept the boxes in his garage, and then his own home, which was filled with cats, in the dining room and in his bedroom. The media called it a house of horrors. Drake said the cleanup took four days, a job for which the state never compensated her team. But I had to protect my company, she said.Not disposableThe one job Drake wont take is the medical waste of an abortion clinic. I do get the calls, because usually theyll pay whatever. You can more or less set your prices with them, she said. I know they have to have the service. But not in my trucks. Once, Drake was called back to a Guatemalan orphanage where she regularly did missionary work and handed a cardboard box with a baby inside, only 2.5 pounds and still covered in blood. They said, Dont fall in love with her, because we dont know if shes going to live, Drake remembered. Too late. She called her husband to inform him that he was a father. Angelina, who did survive, was their first daughter, born on Christmas Eve. Ten years later, the Santa Claus hired for her birthday told Drake she had a problem. Angel had asked for a baby sister. A year later, she got her wish. Drake was preparing a baby shower for a teenage mother with the women in her church, when the girl called to say she was leaving the state. Drake made sure she had a notarized authorization, though handwritten, to at least allow her to give the 2-month-old child medical care before the mother fled. When the mother didnt come back a year later, Drake started the adoption process. Tiffany was now as much her daughter as Angel, she said. Unfortunately, the process cost her more than $150,000 in legal fees and 13 years to finalize. Drake once had to travel to Texas to seek the legal means to retrieve 13-month-old Tiffany from the Air Force Base where her biological mother and boyfriend had fled with her. The state Department of Children and Families made the process very difficult for her, Drake said. And thats a shame, because there are so many (children) in foster care, she said. Even her husband of 18 years couldnt take the ongoing battle, and they divorced. I would go through it all again for Tiffanys adoption. I would just handle it differently, she said. People think children are disposable. Theyre not. Her daughters, now 22 and 33, live out of state. Drake said she misses them and her three grandchildren. She would adopt more children even now, she said. To me, people have babies that dont deserve them, and there are so many people that do want them, she said. Children dont ask to be born into this mess. They just asked to be loved.

Its members invite new residents and any fun and caring people to attend the meetings and business lunches, which include entertainment. The monthly meetings, held September through May, are $8 and include lunch. The Christmas party featuring the Royal Palm Singers, a gift exchange and games is Dec. 3. The club was founded to build sidewalks along Bay Drive. Its next project was building the Largo Public Library. The library and the Womans Club will be 100 years old in 2015. Call Ellen at 584-8314 or Pat at 584-0297. The planners suggested adding picnic seating, information kiosks, rock borders, integrated lighting, swing seats, fencing, a rain garden, wayfinding signs and public art to the trailhead Were not trying to just be another one of the surrounding municipalities, like a Dunedin. Were trying to be the best Largo we can be, McLachlan said. Were trying to bring in amenities that makes sense for our area. The overpass itself also could use an upgrade, she said. The highly visible bridge over the roadway was a great place to advertise Largos downtown with new branding. The concept design suggested upgraded fencing, repainting, decorative lighting and signage. Around the overpass, the plans called for a gathering area, a rain garden and lots more trees and landscaping. What wed like to do is really bring some activity to this space, McLachlan said. To the north and south of the overpass, less intensive changes were needed, but city planners did recommend improving connection points by adding wider sidewalks and minimal improvements like a bench or a bike rack. The city would upgrade the stormwater ditch that runs alongside the trail into a bioswale. Minimal lighting and pedestrian bridges over the swale, especially in residential areas, would encourage use of the trail. Were not trying to promote nighttime use of the trail. We do recognize, however, if we put in improvements like bridges from residential areas, we do need to put in a small bit of lighting if only to show where the bridges are and make it a safer area, McLachlan said. One of the significant changes would be converting one lane of 12th Street Southwest into parallel parking, making it a one-way road. City planners said they recognized the need for parking in the area, especially if they hoped to attract more use of the trail starting from the downtown district. The area directly surrounding the trail is the countys right-of-way, and they wouldnt allow parking. Similarly, city planners said they didnt want to use up parkland for parking. Overall, the project is projected to cost $952,300. But the city has multiple potential funding sources, city engineer Leland Dicus said.Most directly, the project falls within the scope of the West Bay Drive Community Redevelopment funding, and the city also intends to use some of its local option sales tax funding. Because so much of the landscaping involves planting trees, the city can tap into its tree fund to fund that part. Planners also intend to pursue transportation and stormwater grants as well as business sponsorships from the surrounding area.Similar funding sources could be used for annual operation and maintenance costs, estimated at $3,500 to $6,500 per year. The project would fall within overall plans to improve West Bay Drive between 20th Street and Clearwater-Largo Road. The city hopes to enhance the roads medians to reduce pedestrian fatalities. The whole corridor is one of the highest areas for crashes with pedestrians and bicycles, Dicus said. That larger project is currently funded at $1.67 million, but doesnt include the entire costs of the trailhead improvements, as the city hadnt completed the design until recently. City staff asked commissioners for feedback and direction for funding. Commissioners had a few logistical questions, some involving details not yet worked out, but gave their unofficial consent. City staff now will prepare more detailed funding to be approved during a public hearing in April. Should the project move forward, a consultant would be hired to complete the design of the project by 2015, with construction starting in 2016. Were really excited, Brydon said after the presentation.Largo to endorse Greenlight PinellasThe commissioners also heard a presentation on the Greenlight Pinellas Plan, designed to enhance public transportation with improved bus routes and a future passenger rail in Pinellas County. A referendum to increase the sales tax by 1 cent in order to fund the project will be added to the November 2014 ballot. The majority of the commissioners were in favor of the plan, agreeing that it would directly and positively impact the economy of Largo. I think its so important that we do this in the future, Commissioner Robert Murray said. I hope the whole thing gets together while Im still here. Commissioner Curtis Holmes said the commissioners ought to hear a presentation from the No Tax for Tracks group opposed to the project, before agreeing to an endorsement. Mayor Pat Gerard asked if anyone else had an interest in hearing that presentation. No one spoke up. OK, that wont be happening, Gerard said. The endorsement itself will be approved in an upcoming public meeting. For more information about the countywide plan, visit green lightpinellas.com. Photo by JULIANA A.

Belcher Rd. S. Kens Quality Golf Crime beat Crime beatTwo arrested in human trafficking caseLARGO Detectives assigned to the Special Victims Unit arrested two individuals Thursday, Nov. 7, in connection to human trafficking of a juvenile victim. On Nov. 4, the 14-year-old victim disclosed to detectives that the female suspect arranged for her to engage in sexual activity with an adult male for money. The victim told detectives that on Oct. 25, the female suspect told her she was having a male visitor come to her home. The victim was to have sex with him and collect money from him when they were done. Through their investigation, the two suspects were identified, as 60year-old Wanda Ann Ringgo, aka, Wanda Ann Taylor of Largo and Mohand Rashid, 25, of St. Petersburg. On Nov. 6, a search warrant was obtained and was served at Ringgos residence on Nov. 7. Both suspects agreed to meet with detectives at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Administration Building, 10750 Ulmerton Road in Largo, Nov. 7. Rashid reportedly admitted his involvement with the allegations and was arrested and charged with one count of lewd and lascivious battery. He was released from the Pinellas County Jail Nov. 8 on $10,000 surety bond. Ringgo was not cooperative with detectives during the interview, according to the report from the Sheriffs Office. Ringgo was arrested and charged with one count of human trafficking involving a minor under 15 years of age. She is being held without bond in the Pinellas County Jail.PCSO seeks armed robber and carjackerLEALMAN Pinellas County Sheriffs Detectives assigned to the Robbery/Homicide Unit are seeking the publics assistance in locating an armed robbery and armed carjacking suspect(s) who attempted to steal a purse and money from one victim and stole a vehicle from a second victim Nov. 7 in the Lealman area. According to detectives, on Thursday, Nov. 7, about 6:30 p.m., the first victim was walking in the area of 38th Street North and 46th Avenue North when the suspect approached her from behind. The suspect began to yell at the victim, demanded money and implied he had a gun. The victim began to open her cell phone and the suspect fled on foot toward 29th Street North. Two hours later, at approximately 8:30 p.m. the second victim was exiting the Oleys Food Mart, 3891 46th Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. The victim was entering her vehicle when the suspect approached her car. The suspect began to yell at the victim then swung his arm back, striking the victim in the face with what appeared to be a handgun. The victim exited the vehicle and the suspect entered the drivers seat and began driving westbound at 46th Avenue North. The vehicle is described as a four-door Kia Rio, silver in color with a Texas license plate that reads BJG5000. The suspect in the first incident is described as a black male, approximate age 15 to 18, 5-foot, five-inches or taller, thin build, wearing a white tank top, dark colored pants and a brimmed hat worn backwards. The suspect in the second incident is described as a black male, approximate age 20 to 23, 5-foot, 10-inches tall, medium build, wearing a white tank top and possibly a brimmed hat. Due to the similarities of each suspect description and the time frame of each occurrence, detectives believe the suspect in both incidents may be one and the same. Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to contact Detective J. Loftus of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 727-582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

Detectives suspect there may be other victims and ask anyone with information to contact the Sheriffs Office. According to investigators, the crime was reported to the Sheriffs Office Aug. 16, after adult relatives of one of the victims found inappropriate text messages on the girls phone. Detectives said the messages included solicitation for nude photos as well as sexually explicit conversations. Detectives began investigating and determined that during the latter part of this summer the girls were frequenting the bouncy house and inflatable slides on Clearwater Beach. The suspect, identified as Leonardo LopezNavarro, 33, befriended the girls and allowed them to go on the slides and bouncy house without paying. Detectives further determined that inappropriate physical contact took place at that location between the suspect and the victims. On Nov. 6, detectives obtained a warrant and arrested Lopez-Navarro. During the interview, he reportedly admitted that he had shared his phone number with various juveniles. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail where bond was set at $100,000. Detectives suspect there may be other victims and request that anyone with information that may assist in this investigation to call Detective Holly Tsanakaliotis of the Special Victims Unit at 727-582-6200.

CAMPAIGNS, from page 1AWelch delivers final state of the county address for the year By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Commission Chair Ken Welch embarked on a different way of communicating with citizens this year with a quarterly state of the county address made available on the countys website and YouTube. Welch delivered his inaugural address on March 27. His second came Aug. 2. The third and final became available via the Internet Nov. 8. Welch began his address by saying that 2013 had been a productive year. The county has tackled a diverse set of issues this year from revising our Emergency Medical Services, or EMS system, to modernizing our efforts to manage stormwater and improve water quality, and addressing the growing impact of poverty on our countys productivity, potential, and taxpayer funded services. Welch talked about the budget in all three addresses. In the final one, he focused on the work by staff to develop the current $1.7 billion balanced budget that prioritizes public health and safety, community development, environmental sustainability, tourism development and other services, including water quality and an improved surface water management program. Dealing with the cost of emergency management services has been a sore spot for county commissioners for the past several years. Welch talked about the ongoing work to incorporate suggestions from a study by a consulting firm, Fitch and Associates to stabilize the system while continuing quality service. Another topic the chairman focused on during previous addresses is transportation, which is on a fast track to a Nov. 4, 2014 referendum to allow citizens to decide the best way to fund improved transit initiatives. Pinellas County and Tampa Bay lag behind every other metropolitan area when it comes to modern, efficient public transit services, Welch said in his third address. Greenlight Pinellas will change that by funding a modern, dependable and easy to use countywide bus system and a modern local rail system connecting our downtown centers from Clearwater, Largo, Pinellas Park, the Gateway Area and St. Petersburg, with a future connection to Tampa. Welch outlined the benefits of improved transportation including jobs and new development while preserving existing neighborhoods and green spaces. The Pinellas County Commission began an in depth look into the economic impact of poverty and the need for healthy communities in 2012. Staff has been working on a plan to address these challenges in an integrated and comprehensive way, Welch said. A recent report estimates that the impact of poverty in Pinellas is at least $2.5 billion annually. The goal is to provide more effective service delivery, based on collaboration, data management and preventive services, he said. This is a holistic, collaborative approach focused on measurable outcomes and community impact. Healthcare is a related area staff is working to address. Pinellas is a great community, Welch said. But for many of our citizens, healthcare is an ongoing challenge. Pinellas ranks 38 out of the states 67 counties for overall health outcomes. Poverty and lack of access to early preventative health care is a primary driver for our poor health outcomes ranking, he said. We can and must do better, for the benefit of our citizens lacking preventive healthcare and for the Pinellas taxpayers. Work on reducing poverty and associated issues is the focus of a Community Redevelopment area for south St. Petersburg, which officials believe could become a model for redevelopment in other pockets of poverty located in Pinellas. Im excited that the commission is partnering with the city of St. Petersburg to bring new tools to this important effort, Welch said. An area Welch didnt talk about in either of his other state of the county addresses was the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Act of 2012, which was intended to stabilize the national flood insurance program, but has resulted in unaffordable increases in flood insurance rates. The potential impact to our citizens, businesses and local economy is substantial, Welch said of the new threat. Pinellas County has the most subsidized policies in the nation, including thousands of non-waterfront properties. Your county commission is working with community stakeholders, our legislative delegation and congressional representatives to develop sensible alternatives to stabilize the flood insurance program without having a draconian impact on our property values and economy, Welch said. He thanked Property Appraiser Pam Dubov for her work to assess and educate others about the potential effect of flood insurance reform in Pinellas. This will be a priority for your county commission until an acceptable resolution is crafted, Welch said. Welch also thanked county staff for the work done to move the county forward during his year as commission chair. He praised the strong partnership between the commission and the countys constitutional officers, its districts and municipalities. Pinellas County works well because of the collaborative spirit between our elected officials and the active participation of our citizens, Welch said. Your participation is vital and encouraged. Welch will continue to chair the commission through the remainder of 2013 before passing on the gavel. If the commission follows tradition, Vice Chair Karen Seel will serve at the commissions helm in 2014.

The Tampa Bay Storytellers Guild presents Tellabration!, an evening of family-friendly stories for grownups, at Park Station, 5851 Park Blvd., Saturday, Nov. 23, 7:30 to 9 p.m. The event is actually part of a global movement, said Ross Tarr, storyteller and guild member. Storytellers around the world participate in Tellabration! and will be sharing their art form on the same day. The first Tellabration took place in Connecticut in 1988, organized by J.G. Pinkerton, who created the event to preserve the art of storytelling. He wanted to get communities more active and telling stories, Tarr said. The idea was to preserve family histories so future years can understand what happened in the past. The guild has hosted Tellabration! since the mids, originally held at the Pinellas Park Library. But this is only the second year it will take place at Park Station. Its a great little venue, Tarr said. A fundraiser for the Chamber, this years Tellebration! features 10 area storytellers, local to Pinellas County: Tarr, Deborah Frethem, Suzanne Nelson, Shari Layne, husband-and-wife tandem storytellers Maureen and Gene Belote, Geneva Nelson, Katie Adams, Sarah Harris (ASL), and a visit by Chicago-based storyteller Sandi Sylver. Tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20. There will be a silent auction.For information or to purchase tickets, visit www.pinellasparkchamber.com.

Charges are perplexing to sanctuary founder By BOB McCLUREINDIAN SHORES Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary founder Ralph Heath said last week he cant understand why he was arrested and charged with insurance fraud on Nov. 2. Heath, 68, was arrested early Nov. 2 by Indian Shores police and booked into Pinellas County Jail on charges of workers compensation insurance fraud, a felony. He was released about 16 hours later on his own recognizance. According to an affidavit filed by the Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Insurance Fraud, Heath is accused of operating the Sanctuary for seven months in 2012 without workers compensation insurance for his employees. The state also charges that part of that time he operated in spite of a stop-work order from the state. Heath said he had no knowledge of the insurance lapse and was not contacted by either an insurance broker or state officials about the matter. Obviously, if we knew we had lapsed on the insurance, we would have taken care of it immediately, Heath said. This happened over a year ago. Why didnt somebody contact us (before the arrest)? We had zero warning from the state, he added. No contact, no letter and no meeting to discuss it. Heath called the insurance lapse a total accident. As soon as we found out about it, we got it reinstated, he said. The Sanctuary, which opened in 1971 and is a well-respected facility for treating injured birds, has had a rocky financial existence the past two years. The Internal Revenue Service filed liens against the nonprofit for unpaid taxes, which Heath said last spring were being paid back in installments. Then, two weeks ago, the owner of a warehouse on Starkey Road foreclosed on a mortgage against the Sanctuary. Heath said he is currently trying to raise about $770,000 to take care of the issue. In March, the Sanctuary was forced to close its hospital when supervisor Barbara Suto left. The facility still performs triage on injured birds, much of which is done by Heath who is a long-time zoologist. Heath hopes to ultimately hire another veterinarian and reopen the hospital. Through all of this, the Sanctuary continues to operate and pay its bills, Heath said. But Heath admits the latest obstacle is making the stream of donations slow down. Donations were good until we got attacked again, Heath said. Were trying to build ourselves up and then people try to shoot us down.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COMNO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerWith November upon us, we enjoy the beautiful fall colors, trips to fruit stands to shop for our favorite apples, and then most importantly, the Thanksgiving holiday, with warm thoughts of spending this day with family and friends. On Thanksgiving Day, many of us are reminded of the blessings of our families and the many treasured memories that will always will be part of our lives. We look forward to this day of sharing a wonderful meal and visiting with family, creating yet another great memory. Yet there are those in our senior population, who may not look forward to this day for a number of reasons. They may live alone with families in other states, unable to come for a visit or often many seniors are not physically able to travel away from home. It can be a lonely time with feelings that no one in their world views them as valuable or worth listening to. Take a moment and reflect on what you may possibly do to fully express the meaning of Thanksgiving throughout the year. Can you think of a way to free-up a couple of hours each week so that you can give that time to someone you know who is in need of company? Everyone has a story and the longer you live, the more stories you have to share. Invite a senior you know who lives alone to your table on this special holiday. Listen to their stories and know in your heart that they will go home thankful for the memory you helped create for them. The true meaning of Thanksgiving should not end after a prayer or a few shared moments of thanks. Thanksgiving consists of two special words, thanks and giving. Thanksgiving 2014, let us all try to set some time aside for a senior who could use our attention. The joy and the caring you provide will leave a lasting touch on a heart yearning for someone to take an interest in them, and listen to their stories as each of us has a life story. Pull up a chair and just listen, then feel fulfilled with the gift you have given. 111413Every Life has a StoryFor every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it." ~Ivan Panin 101713 110713 Mom is concerned the bullying lesson can go a little too farI dont know about your kids, but my kids especially my fourth grader have been inundated with the bullying topic lately. I know it is a serious issue, but sometimes I think we can overdo something, and it can have a negative effect. In the last month, my daughter has been a part of a week-long anti-bullying campaign, which included dress-up days, and a five-week program called Peacemakers from CASA, or Community Action Stops Abuse, where an instructor comes into the classroom for an hour a week and talks about bullying and other issues. The most recent effort was an hour-long music program called Didgeridoo Down Under, which talked about anti-bullying. You would think we have a bullying problem at my daughters school, but they dont. Its just the hot topic and a buzzword right now. I dont usually watch the evening news with my kids around, because its usually about violence and things I dont want my young kids to hear about. But the other day I had it on, and there was that horrible story about the little 12-year-old girl who committed suicide because of being bullied at school. My 9-year-old daughter stopped what she was doing. Somehow, she heard the reporter say the word suicide and knew about that story. I asked her how she knew about it. I have never talked about it, and I really didnt want her knowing about something like that, because I thought she was too young. She said they talked about it at school in her Peacemakers class. I was kind of surprised and asked her what was talked about. To my dismay, I was shocked and mad at what my daughter told me happened in this class. My daughter told me the Peacemaker instructor talked about bullying, and in her presentation, there was a fake person made out of paper that she wanted the kids to come up to and say something mean and then rip off part of the paper. Most of the kids in my daughters class did not want to say anything mean, but the Peacemaker instructor said she strongly encouraged them to come up and do it. She said they had a choice, but pretty much pressured them into doing it. My daughter was one of those kids who didnt want to do it, but ended up going up to the paper person and telling it she didnt like its new haircut. Most kids ended up saying something mean even though they didnt want to. There were two kids that absolutely didnt want to do it. At the end of the presentation, the instructor told those two kids they were the only ones who werent bullies. She gave them a reward, and the others had to write apology notes to the paper person. My daughter told me she felt terrible. She said she only did it because she felt like the instructor was a teacher, and she had to listen to her. The instructor then asked the students how they thought this made the paper doll feel when it was bullied. My daughter said the answers the kids gave were sad, mad, angry, upset and wanted to run away. The instructor said there was one more answer they were missing. This is where the word suicide came up. Something I dont think kids in fourth grade need to know. A message that was meant to be good, in this instance, was not. I ended up calling the organization that presented the program, and they told me the lesson might have been presented wrong by the instructor. I talked to the principal of my daughters school who said she would talk to the presenter and by no means should fourth graders be taught about the word suicide or influenced to do something they didnt feel was right. This was an opportunity for me as a parent to talk to my kids about what had gone on in school. I told both of my daughters that if ever they dont feel something is right, they dont have to do it, even if it is a teacher, instructor or an adult telling them to do something. As far as the word suicide, I talked to my fourth grader about it, even though I think she was too young to know about that just yet. My advice to all parents is to communicate with your kids. Ask them about their day, about their friends and whats going on in their lives. There are serious topics that need to be addressed with our kids in and out of school. We need to be careful, though, in how we address these issues.Kadi Hendricks Tubbs, mother of two girls ages 7 and 9, lives in Seminole. Visit her blog at Mom2MomFamilyFun.blogspot.com.

The psychology of life without walls: inside a dolphin fightSomething very rare happened at sea the other day. Three big bottlenose dolphins had a big fight. In every way, it was a glaring example of the psychology of life lived without walls. It was two against one: N and Riptab against DD2. DD2s alliance partner BB was not there. This was most unusual, but whether the pair took advantage of it to fight the single bull is unknown. If so, it did not appear to work. We first saw them in the distance. Thought the situation was desperate, the vista was beautiful. The sea glittered like a field of diamonds. It created a shimmering Las Vegas stage curtain against which the dolphins suddenly exhibited their most sensational aerial behavior: One dolphin leaps wildly into the sky to avoid a second one lunging out of the water beneath it, trying to ram it. We rushed over but were too late. DD2 had rocketed away to the east, leaving N and his buddy Riptab to mill around and surf a passing wave. Such behavior was out of place for the tension of the moment, and was an example of displacement behavior. In the same way, I might be really mad at you so I safely attack a sandwich. The seas quieted, but the moment would not last. Bottlenose dolphins fight in rounds like professional boxers; either they get winded quickly or just back off to catch their breath. But their fights are onagain-off-again. It is often hard to tell when the fight is over. It is not hard to tell when the conflict starts again. Round two began when DD2 rocketed back from his point of retrieval; we glimpsed something large and gray shooting past underwater. He could have stayed away but did not. The seas erupted in another round of conflict. Like most fights, Round two was mostly underwater. But you could occasionally see the dolphins circling each other, trying to arch over each other, or rolling in the water onto their backs or sides. The latter appeared to be efforts to make contact with another dolphin only with their back rather than the less impervious belly region. When N rolled and pressed against Riptab to squash DD2 between them, DD2 squirted out only to whirl around and continue circling them, vying for position. It was really surprising to see N and Riptab rush away. They left together at speed, using the classic skim behavior in which the dolphin creates a rooster off either side of the body in its haste. This time, it was DD2 who came and milled around the boat as we watched his two rivals become distant silhouettes in the diamond field. Then DD2 vanished and we awaited Round three. It was not long in coming. Curiously, N and Riptab had sprinted into the distance, turned around, came back and launched into Round three. They had acted the same way DD2 acted before Round two. Another wild bout of circling, arching and rolling commenced. Conflict is a fact of life. It is not comfortable. But there is one nice thing about it: Conflict is rare, in its natural state anyway. Constant or predictable conflict is indicative of a destructive situation that must be resolved and is not normal conflict. Because conflict is rare in the natural state, it is hard to study. Many scientists study animal conflict because people are too self-conscious to be studied; they change their behavior when scientists start taking notes! Official studies of animal conflict also are hard because you can never tell what the animals are fighting about. The best you can do is try to figure out the context in which conflict takes place. Today, this was not possible to do. The study of dolphin conflict is especially difficult because it is very hard to tell when dolphins are fighting. Fighting creates lots of splashing. The problem is that other happier behaviors, which are just as active like zesty sex and play, also create lots of splashing. All that splashing obliterates the details. I actually once devoted two years of my life to studying conflict among 13 captive bottlenose dolphins to inform field biologists so they could recognize conflict at sea and differentiate it from those other happier behaviors. I did not know at the time that I would be the field biologist that my study would inform. The feature that best identifies dolphin conflict is the tail whip. The tail whip looks like a dolphin doing a headstand with the back half of his body out of the water and vertical. Clear of the water, the tail is then punched wildly sideways at anyone who is near. DD2, N and Riptab only did fake tail whips like a guy who clenches his fist without throwing the punch. But that did not stop Round 3 from happening. It ended when N and Riptab rushed away again as before, skimming to the south as fast as they could. Again, DD2 swung by the boat and submerged like dolphins do. We waited for Round 4. But the dolphins were totally gone and we never saw them again. In a life without walls, they could take their fight wherever it led them. And they did.Dr. Weaver studies wild dolphins under federal permit 16299, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

On the average, age 7 equates to 55-65 human years. Our pets bodies and organs begin aging at a more rapid rate once they become a senior at 7. What does this mean for your pet? As he or she ages, we can see signs at home that clue us in to decreasing function of his or her body systems. Drinking more water, and in turn urinating more, can be our only sign of diabetes, kidney insufficiency/failure, or endocrine (hormone) disease. Reluctance to exercise may be the result of arthritis or heart disease. Changes in appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, and sneezing can be indicative of various disease processes that involve the liver, kidneys, heart and lungs. Many of these changes happen over time and are sometimes difficult to recognize because we see our pets everyday. Identifying these signs early and bringing your pet in for a physical exam leads to a greater chance of early diagnosis and treatment. Most of our pets have been generally healthy in their younger years and have never needed a full biochemical profile, complete blood count (CBC), thyroid hormone level, urinalysis, electrocardiogram, radiographs, or any other diagnostic procedure apart from yearly heartworm testing and intestinal parasite screening. The physical exam performed yearly can provide a great deal of information; however, without the benefit of biochemical profiles and other diagnostic tests, it is difficult to assess how well the internal organs are functioning. In many cases, performing these tests alert us to problems that are just beginning and early diagnosis leads to early treatment. Early detection, and early treatment, can extend your pets longevity and quality of life. The American Veterinary Medical Association and the Animal Hospital of Dunedin recommends yearly screening of your senior pet. Your veterinarian will make recommendations for your pet according to the physical exam findings. At the Animal Hospital of Dunedin, our goal for our patients in their golden years is to prolong life with quality.Dr. Heather Manfredi, D.V.M., is a veterinarian at the Animal Hospital of Dunedin.

For years, Florida has relied on tourism as a major source of revenue, but in order for the state to continue economic growth, it must invest in other key industries as well. The Florida Legislature has recognized the importance of an efficient logistics network to job creation, retention, and the recruitment of companies from other states and around the globe by increasing investment in Florida ports and other infrastructures. These improved facilities have enhanced Floridas global competitiveness, provided jobs to thousands of Floridians and improved our international trade and tourism. Investments in Floridas infrastructure also provide a steady stream of local, state, and federal government revenues. Florida is home to 15 seaports that handle about 40 percent of total U.S. exports, welcome the largest number of cruise passengers in the world, and employ more than 680,000 Floridians. These jobs generate $26.1 billion in personal income, produce $96.6 billion in direct business revenue, and contribute to more than $2.4 billion in local and state taxes. The direct economic impact of ports will be even greater if Florida capitalizes on opportunities for growth. The growing population in Florida and in the southeast mega-regions, the latter which currently account for more than one-third of the U.S. population, is expected to increase the demand for goods entering Florida. Growth of international markets will add to that demand, especially those located in the Latin American region. Trade with Latin America and the Caribbean is of utmost importance for Florida, as seven of its top 10 trading partners have been from this region in recent years. Florida should expect higher seaport traffic in the coming years, if and only if the right investments are made in order to maintain seaport competitiveness. While several of our ports are already expanding and improving their facilities, it is important for Florida seaports and logistics centers to work together toward a statewide development vision rather than a local or regional one. A statewide vision would avoid connectivity issues, redundancies, and inefficiencies in the system. Several reports have called for this vision, including The Florida Department of Transportation 2060 Transportation Plan and the Florida Chamber Foundations Florida Trade and Logistics Study. While Florida has the chance to benefit from changing international landscapes and further domestic investment, we should be aware of how other states are developing their seaports and intermodal systems. This is particularly true for states in the southeastern region that have successfully increased their exports at a high growth rate for the past years. For example, Louisiana is currently experiencing increases that may well position them at a higher ranking than Florida in the near future. The Florida seaport industry continues to grow, as shown by the increase in sea and coastal transportation jobs since the end of the recession. In order to maintain this growth and help Florida remain a world trade hub, policy makers should continue to appropriate the necessary resources to this industry, as our ports ability to efficiently handle freight will determine if Florida will take a larger share of both domestic and international trade, however, doing so will require the right investment and careful planning. While looking for opportunities to further diversify Floridas economy and make the Sunshine State a better place to live, work and play, state leaders should continue to support Florida ports.Dominic M. Calabro is President and Chief Executive Officer of Florida TaxWatch, a statewide, nonprofit, nonpartisan government watchdog and research institute for taxpayers.What do Tuesdays resounding re-election of Republican Chris Christie as governor of Democrat-friendly New Jersey and the excruciating defeat of tea party stalwart and gubernatorial wannabe Ken Cuccinelli in once reliably Republican Virginia say about Republican chances of retaking the White House in 2016? Christie won by 22 points after badmouthing the federal government shutdown, which these days makes him a moderate. Now some pundits are wondering out loud whether Christie is the 2016 front-runner. In losing to oily Democrat Terry McAuliffe, Cuccinelli drove another nail in the tea party coffin. I wouldnt declare Christie the GOP frontrunner. As Ethics and Public Policy Center senior fellow Henry Olsen opined, Christie has a unique outsize appeal that works in New Jersey but will not necessarily translate to the national stage. But sometimes the conventional wisdom is right. Here are the lessons I take away from the voters verdicts: The tea party strategy of bucking the party establishment is a loser. Cuccinelli supporters are venting against the GOP establishment for not giving more money to their man when polls showed that McAuliffes lead was dwindling because of the glitch-rich Obamacare rollout. Knowing that Christie was going to win that race without their help, why would they not help Cuccinelli more? Tea Party Express head Amy Kremer complained to The Washington Times. She has a point, but she ignores the laws of cause and effect. In maneuvering the nomination process from a primary election to a convention, the Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote in a biting none-of-the-above endorsement, Cuccinelli engaged in an expression of raw power (that) would have delighted sachems of Tammany Hall. Virginia does not welcome an in-your-face governor. Tea partyers boast that the GOP cannot win without them. But guess what. They cannot win without the establishment, either. Successful candidates appeal to those outside their base. During his acceptance speech, Christie boasted that he won because he campaigned outside the GOP base. He talked about the need to listen to voters a novel concept. In his concession speech, Cuccinelli talked to dead people. We fought for the principles that were first articulated for the whole world by Virginians, Cuccinelli told his supporters. He mentioned George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Were New Jersey, Christie said. We fight, but for whats important. Cuccinelli? He told his supporters, We home-school. There is a right way and a wrong way to oppose abortion rights. To talk to all America, you have to start with the proposition that we are happy that women have a different role in life and control over their bodies, Olsen noted. We are a pro-life party, Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling told The New York Times, but if were going to be the party of fetal ultrasounds, were going to have a problem. Christie opposes abortion rights. He vetoed Planned Parenthood funding more than once. The difference is that Christie talks as if he knows governing is his most important mission. There are two kinds of Republicans: those who think Democrats are the big problem with Washington and those who blame other Republicans. From opposing corners, Cuccinelli and Christie fall into the latter category. Cuccinellis tea party shut down the federal government in a failed effort to defund Obamacare. That stunt boomeranged and cost Cuccinelli votes from angry families of furloughed federal workers. Sometimes I feel like our party cares more about winning the argument than they care about winning elections, Christie told CNN. Hes right. The shutdown was a bust. But if Christie wants to win in 2016, he shouldnt lecture the base. If lectures won elections, Cuccinelli would be governor-elect.Email Debra J. Saunders at dsaunders@ sfchronicle.com.

Its unlikely well see an end to it in our lifetimes. Heres what we may look forward to in years to come. WASHINGTON, D.C. June 20, 2022. The National Rifle Association today announced complete control of almost half of Congress. An NRA spokesman said, We now can state that forty-four of the Senates 100 members and 238 of U.S. representatives have pledged their absolute support for all NRA policies and goals. This will guarantee that no new guncontrol laws will be adopted during the current session of Congress, and that several existing anti-NRA laws will be repealed. The spokesman added, The loyalty of these pro-NRA legislators was obtained without a single bribe being extended or accepted by these gallant Second Amendment defenders. We simply made them an offer they couldnt refuse. If they agreed to become a willing servant of the NRA, we would give them our full backing for the remainder of their political lives. If, on the other hand, they chose to remain independent, we would oppose them with a level of enthusiasm that would make them wish they had been born in Bangladesh. This arrangement now referred to as the Bangladesh Deal almost always brings the Congresspersons around to our way of thinking. WASHINGTON, D.C. Feb. 14, 2018. The Pew Research Center says that most Americans fully expect there will be at least one shooting incident per week at a college, public school or shopping mall.It seems to have become part of the American Way of Life, said Lillian Armstrong, a Pew vice president. We view this attitude as neither pessimistic or optimistic. During the past decade or so, shootings in public places have become so common that anyone with a grain of sense has concluded that most citizens are in danger the moment they open their front door and step outside. Ms. Armstrong said, Whats disturbing is the fact that millions of Americans no longer are greatly disturbed by all the gunfire and death that surround us. Our media studies show that, unless the shooting occurs within a two-mile radius of their homes, the average citizen spends less than seven seconds viewing a TV report or reading a news account of the gunfire, before passing on to other news items. Like cellphones or football, shootings have become an accepted part of our culture. One interviewee summed up Americans feelings with this remark: What do you expect, when most people you pass on the street are carrying at least one weapon? A firearm is much like your sex drive: use it or lose it. Ms. Armstrong said. EUGENE, Ore. Sept. 22, 2016. A sixthgrade student at the Lincoln Elementary School has been expelled for using the word rifle in an essay written for a composition class. The schools principal, Todd Farmhorst, told local news media that the expulsion of the boy identified only as Joey was an expression of the schools zero-tolerance policy with regard to firearms. Other schools may pussy-foot around when it comes to guns, but Lincoln Elementary is not one of them, he said. He added, We began by prohibiting the possession of any sort of weapon by students. Later we added pencils and pens to the list, along with perfume or cologne that might be sprayed into a victims face during an attack. Our next step was to cleanse our schools library of all books with the words gun, bomb, shoot, stab, or pistol in a books title. Students were forbidden to use those and other incendiary terms in their daily speech while attending classes. Finally, we cracked down on any written materials that contained words referring to guns, explosives or violence of any kind. The principal said, Joeys essay told about a hunting trip his father had taken ten years ago. He could have used a synonym for rifle, but he chose not to. Now he must pay the price. If I could, I would expel any student who even thought about guns. An unexpected result of Principal Farmhorsts actions was a false report that a serial killer carrying six kinds of firearms and an assortment of hand grenades had invaded the school. Police from Eugene and five nearby communities surrounded the school, ordered a lockdown, and summoned attack helicopters to the scene. Before the mistaken report was cleared up, the noise and confusion had scared the school children out of a years growth, according to one parent, who added, But it was worth it, to keep our kiddies safe from these gun nuts.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun.

The money would have covered the entire cost of the expansion for three years and 90 percent subsequently. Conservative lawmakers were worried about having to pay more later, so they decided that no one gets covered by the expansion now. At least 21 states have taken the money, including several with Republican-controlled statehouses. The politics that have led to the states failure to act will prove costly to its citizens and hospitals. The solution is for Florida to do the math and swallow the extreme, anti-Washington ideology and accept the $55 billion in federal funding to expand Medicaid.The Miami Herald Nov. 9Florida governors race: All signs point to rough ride aheadAlmost as soon as former Gov. Charlie Crist made his expected announcement last week that he intends to run for his old seat in 2014, negative ads against him started popping up on television. Welcome to Election Year 2014. Its going to be a rough and mud-spattered ride. By now, most voters are resigned to the sad reality that negative campaigns are a driving force in most races. This time around its starting far earlier than usual, with the promise of lots more to come.Florida Today Nov. 8Hazing and other NFL failuresNot long ago, NFL coaches routinely rushed injured players back onto the field before they were ready. Coaches also ran their teams like despots, with their ears closed to player concerns. Nowadays, things are a bit different. Sensitive to its image and the possibility of litigation, the league requires teams to treat injuries, particularly concussions, much more seriously. And coaching styles have evolved away from the General Patton-like model. But if coaches have changed with the times, the locker rooms they rule havent changed much since players wore leather helmets. The mess in Miami, where Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin left the team after being subjected to epithets and other abuse from fellow offensive lineman Richie Incognito, exposes how destructive outdated player rituals can be.

By ALEXANDRA LUNDAHLCLEARWATER Middle school can be a breeding ground for bullying, especially as kids grow into themselves, hit puberty and are trying to navigate the awkward space between childhood and the teen years. Thats why the Juvenile Welfare Board, Pinellas County Schools and Gulf Coast Jewish Family Community Services have teamed up to provide the Violence Prevention Program with the Second Step curriculum to select Pinellas County schools. We identified 10 middle schools based on the level of special needs students, the disciplinary referral rates, inand out-of-school suspension rates, academic performance and those kind of criterion, said Rod Cyr, senior contract manager with the Juvenile Welfare Board. These schools are Oak Grove Middle School in Clearwater, Tarpon Middle, Dunedin Highland Middle, Largo Middle, Pinellas Park Middle, Morgan Fitzgerald Middle in Largo, and Meadowlawn, Azalea, Tyrone, and John Hopkins Middle Schools in St. Petersburg. The JWB issued a request for proposals in 2002 and Gulf Coast Jewish Family Community Services won the bid. JFCS provides a prevention specialist that is assigned to each of the 10 schools, delivering Second Step curriculum to sixth graders. The curriculum consists of 15 50-minute lessons that focus on violence prevention including bullying using tools such as workbooks, videos, role-playing and exercises in conflict resolution. prevention specialist at Oak Grove. She said the lessons start with empathy and communication and working on socialization and being able to work in a group with other people. Empathy is huge, she said, and its important that kids can grasp the concept. The program discusses different aspects of empathy and communication for the first five weeks, including working in groups, discussing friends and allies, considering different perspectives, disagreeing respectfully and being assertive. Then the class directly discusses bullying prevention for two weeks, including how to recognize a bully and how bystanders can help the situation. Next it discusses emotions for two weeks, including strategies to calm down, followed by two weeks of problem solving skills. The program concludes with four lessons about substance abuse. The program is interactive, so the kids actively participate in the lessons, including a lot of roleplaying. Nancy Friedman, director of the JFCS, said that the program gets the kids engaged by experimenting and being involved instead of just sitting and listening. Pam Hole, school guidance counselor at Oak Grove, said that the role-playing especially helps. Fran Bradshaw, social studies teacher for sixth-grade at Oak Grove agreed that sixth-grade is perfect for these kinds of lessons and the means of delivery. I make it clear that theyre teaching each other, Dice said. This is more effective than me teaching or Miss Bradford because its kids teaching kids. Another interactive aspect is a corresponding poster contest the kids do each fall, drawing posters to illustrate problems like bullying and substance abuse. Hole said that bullying can be a problem in any middle school, but she thinks the prevention program in sixth-grade helps a lot. Its important to have a program like that in place, she said, because bullying reaches its peak in middle school. Im not sure they understand the consequences of bullying, but it increases in middle school and then kind of goes away again in high school, Hole said. To help stem this and other problems, Oak Grove assigns a guidance counselor to each grade, and that counselor stays with the same group of students, so the counselor assigned to the sixth-graders this year will therefore be next years seventh-grade counselor and so forth. So we have a good relationship with our kids, and theyll come tell me immediately if something is going on, Hole said. Whereas the person being bullied wont necessarily, but others tell me what they see. Bradford said that this and also having the prevention specialist is helpful because it gives other people students can confide in. The students are not as threatened by reporting to Jan if there is an incident or something that happened as they might be to school personnel, Bradford said. I think they feel safe. The program seems to be working. The data shows that. We administer preand postassessments to the students, and those assessments determine change in students perceptions as it relates to physical or verbal aggression, their perception of social exclusion, and their perception of social and emotional conflicts, Cyr said. And were able to measure change in that perception from the beginning of training to the end, and on average its about 81 to 95 percent of the students that are showing a positive change. Students are already taking away important lessons from the program. Quinton Leveutte, 11, and Zani Hannah, 12, both of Clearwater and sixth-graders at Oak Grove are both in Bradfords social studies class. In one of Dices recent violence prevention lessons, Leveutte and Hannah acted out a role-playing skit. (Were learning) how to be kind to others and help prevent bullying, Leveutte said. In a previous lesson, Leveutte said they learned how to imagine being in another persons shoes. (Im learning) not to dwell on things that happened a long time ago, Hannah added. So far, all the lessons they had been learning focused on some form of empathy, and both boys agreed that it is an important thing to learn. Because maybe when you get older you can have it and carry it on, Hannah said. Empathy also can help you make friends, Leveutte added. Like if you help them, they might get to know you and you might end up being friends. For most students, these larger classes are sufficient in giving them the skills they need. But for those students who may need more intensive help, there are small groups available, whether its to deal with aggression and bullying problems or to work on being assertive and confident. These small, skill building groups meet for six weeks during one class period and typically consist of six or seven students who share a similar problem or area they need to work on, Cyr said. It might be emotional management, it might be anger management, it might be that theyve gotten into a conflict with a teacher or another classmate, Cyr said. So they all have a similar issue that theyre trying to deal with. And its all voluntary... Most do participate. For those with behavioral issues, sometimes they are given the choice between suspension and participating in the small group sessions, and usually the student and parent agree that the group is the better option. Ive sat in on some of the groups, and theyre usually the ones sitting in the back of the room with their arms crossed, Cyr said. Theyre under duress at first. But you visit it later, after three or four weeks, and then theyre like okay, it works. Friedman said that its important that parents know that the groups are not just for the challenging students. Were really talking about strengthening communication skills, Friedman said. Theyre skills probably a lot of our parents and grown-ups could use. Dice added that many of the parents she has talked to said they wished they had a program like this when they were younger. Sometimes the kids are picked on at home, Friedman said. Other times they have low self-esteem or maybe they are overweight themselves or are short and therefore pick on others to try to steer any negative attention away from themselves, Hole said. Friedman said that part of the talent of the staff is how good they are at forming these groups. Because you have all different levels of need, Friedman said. Thats why I say this is a prevention program. So you have students who are maybe a little bit quieter, taking a little more time to get their thoughts together. One wouldnt want to put those students in with a bunch of more talkative, self-confident students because the first student could get overshadowed. The dynamic has to be right, Friedman said. So one group can work on being more assertive and getting better communication skills while another could work on aggression issues or something else. Each student in the small groups privately come up with a personal goal with Dice, and each week the group does a goal check. They rate their progress on a scale from 1 to 10 and say where they think they are on that scale each week. Then the group talks about the lesson of the week and ways they can start incorporating that lesson into their lives. The great thing about these groups, Friedman said, is that they often can prevent negative situations in the future. They give people tools to settle differences without getting physical, without getting verbally aggressive, Friedman said. The final component of the Violence Prevention Program is that the prevention specialist provides information, training and in-services to school personnel about bullying and the other issues the program touches on. Typically, theyll work with 400 to 500 school personnel during in-service training and will share information that the teacher can use in the classroom to help de-escalate a situation or deal with a particular problem or at least identify that theyre here in the school and here to help them, Cyr said. So if Rod is disruptive in your class, invite him to my small-group skill building class and Ill work with him and see if we can help. This training also teaches the faculty and staff some of the key words and concepts that are used and discussed in the program, and they are encouraged to use the terminology with their students. That way the entire school is using the same language and these concepts continue to be reinforced, Cyr said. The teachers and counselors at Oak Grove agreed that all of them work hard to use these words and to enforce these lessons whenever possible with their students. I think (it helps) because everyone is speaking the same language, Friedman said. For the rare instances where bullying continues despite other attempts of intervention, it can be referred to the state attorney. Hole said she has done that a few times, but usually just the threat of it causes the students to back off. All the components together are having a positive effect at Oak Grove and throughout the participating schools. Last school year, a total of 1,336 students participated in the small group sessions at the 10 participating middle schools, Cyr said. The small groups also do preand post-assessments that deal with their understanding of conflict resolution, he said. In the last year, 97 percent of the students increased their understanding of conflict resolution and personal relations, Cyr said. Additionally, about 75 percent of the students from the smallgroups had no inor out-ofschool suspensions during the school year after participating in the group, which is excellent, considering that at some of these schools, the likelihood of this group of students to have suspensions is upward of 50 percent. In addition to the statistics, there are the personal stories that show that its working. Just that day, Dice said one of the boys in her assertiveness group volunteered to participate in one of the role-playing skits. In another case, Friedman said that she sat in on a small group once and a girl told a story about how she and her friends witnessed a bully walk by and knock a boys books and papers out of his hands. (After) the bully left, the boys papers were still flying, and they ran down and they picked up all the papers and helped him, Friedman said. And what struck me was she said, I felt like Superwoman. They felt they came to the rescue, they were allies. They were so empowered you could see it on her face. The purpose of the program is to reduce inand out-of-school suspensions, disciplinary referrals particularly those referrals that center around aggression and antisocial and disruptive behaviors, Cyr said. The program consists of three major components. Theres a classroom component and then a small skill-building group component and then theres the in-service training for school personnel. Last school year, a total of 3,301 sixth-graders received the curriculum, which the prevention specialist delivers once a week or every other week through one of their regular classes. At Oak Grove Middle, its during their social studies class.

Behar is set to be rotated to a new assignment at the end of the school year. According to the Pinellas Park Police Department this rotation is part of a department protocol that rotates officers after five years on one assignment. But a group of parents, students and staff have stepped up to ask Chief Dorene Thomas to reconsider Behars move. Not only does he have the respect of the parents and faculty, but the students as well, said Elise Crepeau, whose daughter attends PPHS and turned to Behar for assistance when being bullied. He helps them make better choices. Behar goes above and beyond whats expected of him in order to forge connections with students, Crepeau said. Everyone from good students to rebellious students with troubled pasts. Crepeau is behind the effort to keep Behar at PPHS. She circulated an online petition that now has more than 150 signatures and organized the protest. Scores of comments on the petition, as well as a Facebook page created for the protest, show how beloved Behar is in the PPHS community. One grandmother, Judy Davis, wrote about the impact Behars mentorship had on her two grandsons, who had behavioral issues and were required to attend special classes. If you want a success story, I can give you one, she wrote. Her grandsons no longer need to attend these special classes and achieved mostly As and Bs. Officer Behar is loved and respected by the students and is a necessity there. Please, please reconsider moving him. He is someone they look up to and feel they can go to if needed, Davis wrote. Pinellas Park students would suffer terribly with his removal. In a day and time where young people are so impressionable and literally have little respect for police, he is your guy to turn that around. Former PPHS student Megan Drumm wrote on the petition that it would be a tragedy to see him go. During my time at PPHS, Officer Behar made everyone feel welcome and safe, she wrote. He takes his job very seriously while being able to hold strong relationships with his students. Behar is overwhelmed by the support. Its unbelievable, he said. Im honored. While the most important aspect of his job is ensuring the safety of all students and faculty on campus, Behar said he also participates in various student events, including drivers safety classes and a 9/11memorial ceremony. At the heart of his work is the connection he forges with students, he said. Respect is not given, its earned, he said. Behar worked for the New York City Police Department from 2000 to 2004, before moving to New Port Richey. He enjoyed his time as an SRO in New York City and when he joined the PPPD, he indicated he would like to take on a similar role in Pinellas Park. He spent one year as SRO at Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School before moving to the high school. His five-year rotation as SRO has already been extended by one year. Crepeau said that removing him from the school would be detrimental to the students. Chief Thomas said that so far no decision has been made regarding Behars fate at PPHS. We have to determine what is in the best interest of all parties involved, she said. Behar said he understands and respects the Chiefs decision, no matter what it is. But he indicated that he would prefer to stay at PPHS. The petition can be found at www.ipetitions.com/petition/keepofficer-behar.

Weve really been fortunate this fall season. We have had a steady cool down rather than the dramatic shock that we had the past two years. With that said its looking like this weeks front might be packing a bigger punch, with overnight lows getting down around 50 degrees, we can expect some big changes. A combination of high winds and plummeting water temperatures will most likely be enough to push dwindling bait stocks out of the area. Looking on the bright side, however, everything eats a live shrimp. Free-lining live select shrimp over grass areas with good current flow can yield a wide variety of species. Although select sized shrimp may cost a bit more they are well worth it. Not only do they cast farther; they are quicker than the smaller shrimp, allowing them a better chance at escaping predation from the droves of pinfish. Pinfish and grass grunts are another great bait option, especially when the pilchards disappear. Small pinfish can easily be chummed up and castnetted in the shallows and work great for redfish and trout. Use them under a cork when trying to keep them out of the grass when fishing for trout and trim their tails and free-line them when searching for redfish. As cold fronts become more numerous were going to have days when conditions are just not acceptable for fishing. When the wind howls strait out of the north directly following a passing cold front, the Intracoastal Waterway can get pretty dirty. Most people will agree that a north wind is the hardest to fish around here. Just because there are few places to seek protection on a wind blocked shoreline. Fish are not happy in dirty, muddy water. Even if you fish a spot that youve had great success at recently, but now the water is dirty, dont stay there long if youre not getting any bites. Those fish are probably still there or somewhere nearby but there most likely not going to bite too good until it cleans up again. Email Tyson Wallerstein at capt.tyson@hotmail.com. Fish TalesCapt.

Movie reviewThor: The Dark World adds thunder to Marvels expanding film franchise Photos courtesy of MARVEL STUDIOSChris Hemsworth, left, stars as Thor and Anthony Hopkins as Odin in Thor: The Dark World. choly with charisma a snarky sense of humor. Hiddleston, meanwhile, continues to be a scene-stealer. His Loki is devilishly deceitful. Hiddleston does a wonderful job stacking of layers of false personas for Loki so its never quite clear whether the face he is showing is genuine or just another faade. Natalie Portmans portrayal of Jane Foster is somewhat disappointing. She fails to stand out as Thors inspiration for wanting to protect Earth and she is less effective at relating to the other characters. Her mentor, Erik Selvig, is played once again by Stellan Skarsgrd. Skarsgrd provides some of that comedic relief in his performance,Natalie Portman portrays Jane Foster and Chris Hemsworth stars as Thor in Thor: The Dark World.

With ample action and strong performances, Thor: The Dark World successfully blends mythology and science fiction to craft a visually spectacular, deliciously entertaining entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perhaps a little less pretentious than its predecessor, Thor: The Dark World benefits from a goofy sense of humor that helps soften the grim aspects of its unnecessarily complicated plot. Actually, the pivotal conflict is rather simple: The Dark Elf Malekith isnt fond of any form of radiance and wants his neighbors to turn off their porch lights, permanently. And that means ALL of his neighbors, throughout the nine regions of the Asgardian dimension, including Midgard, the Earthly plane of existence. The film opens with a Tolkienesque prologue covering the backstory of how Bor, the father of Odin, managed to stop Malekith from destroying the universe with the Aether untold eons ago during the Convergence, a rare alignment of the Nine Realms. After defeating Malekith, Bor hides the weapon. Malekith and a few of his henchmen slip away and go into hiding. Fast forward to the present day. Astrophysicist Jane Fosters intern Darcy Lewis discovers an abandoned factory where the laws of physics seem to be breaking down. While exploring the site, Foster accidentally stumbles into another dimension where she is infected by the Aether, which, apparently, causes Malekiths alarm clock to start buzzing annoyingly. The vengeful Malekith awakens and threatens to reclaim the Aether and plunge the universe into darkness. The awkward exposition ends there and the pace picks up dramatically as the bad guys attack Asgard. From that point on, Thor: The Dark World is all action, character interplay and well-placed humor. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston excel in their performances. Hemsworths Thor is heroic and larger-than-life, as is required. The character is a bit of a brooding, idealistic lunkhead at times, and Hemsworth manages to counterbalance Thors Shakespearian melanReel TimeLee Clark Zumpe See TOP FIVE, page 2B Top five diversions Joe Bonamassa, Friday, Nov. 15, 8 p.m.; and Saturday, Nov. 16, 8 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater.

Gypsy Stage Repertory presents The Book of Liz By TIFFANY RAZZANOGypsy Stage Repertory Company presents the following performances of The Book of Liz: Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15 and 16, 8 p.m., at the Silver Meteor Gallery, 2213, E. Sixth Ave., Tampa Friday, Nov. 22, 8 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 23, 2 p.m., at the SAFI Space, 1714 CR1, Suite 2, Dunedin This off-beat comedy, written by the Sedaris siblings author David and his sister actor and comedienne Amy is uber over the top, said director Lil Barcaski, and really, really funny. Farcical in nature and driven by the Sedaris signature quirky humor, The Book of Liz tells the story of Sister Elizabeth Donderstock (Brianna Larson), a cheese-ball making member of the Squeamish, a vaguely Amish sect. Shes used to being pushed around by Rev. Tollhouse (Zackhary Meyers, who stepped up to take on the role just two weeks before performances began), but the bullying gets worse when Brother Nathanial Brightbee (Jordan Harner) arrives at Clusterhaven and demands she fork over her famous cheese ball recipe, which sustains the existence of their religious community. Feeling frustrated and unappreciated, Liz decides to leave her cloistered home and enter the real world. Along the way she dons a peanut costume, befriends a Ukrainian couple with Cockney accents (Tamara Spiri and Ricky Jones) and finds a job at Plymouth Crock Restaurant, which is run by recovering alcoholics. And while the play is funny, the message is just as important, Barcaski said. This play, with all its silliness, reminds us that it may be better to improve things where you are than run away to that always perfect place, the other side of the fence, where the theoretical grass is greener, she wrote in the playbill. And maybe more importantly, to be kind and respectful of the people we love, lest we lose them. The shows first performance in Tampa Bay was in Largo.

The story of Faust is one of the most popular in western literature. Using elaborate camera movements, a dense soundscape, intricate production design and spectacular locations, Faust conjures up a unique and phantasmagoric vision of the Faustian legend. Faust(Johannes Zeiler) is a man in search of the ideals of the Enlightenment, but becomes obsessed with the lovely Margarete (Isolda Dychauk) and eventually sells his soul to the Devil (Anton Adasinsky), also known as the Moneylender, so that he may possess her.

Through this adversity, the couple realizes that they can never lose everything as long as they have each other.For more movie news, visit www.TBNweekly.com. Click on the Movie News & Reviews link on the left-side menu.capturing the good-hearted eccentric perfectly. Malekith is played by Christopher Eccleston, best known as ninth incarnation of Doctor Who. Eccleston is barely recognizable beneath the makeup, but he is to be commended for not making the antagonist overly megalomaniacal. Malekith is vengeful, but single-minded. The character doesnt seem concerned about racking up a large body count hes mainly interested in one specific objective. Eccleston confines the characters malevolence to his primary goals. Other standouts in the film include Idris Elba as Heimdall, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Rene Russo as Frigga and, surprisingly, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis. Chris ODowd, best known as Roy Trenneman on the comedy The IT Crowd, has a small but perfectly fitting role. Taking a cue from The Avengers, director Alan Taylor thankfully realized that a successful superhero film cant rely solely on action and good casting. While the story is important, it isnt the key ingredient: It is the way the characters interact within the story. Taylor manages to imbue the tale with glimpses of romance, camaraderie, familial affection and humor, making the scenes between bombastic clashes equally compelling. Not to worry, though: The story spins inexorably toward a Greenwich showdown that is pure popcorn-munching spectacle. Its an epic brawl that would have looked perfect on the pages of Journey Into Mystery back in the early 1960s, when Thor was still evolving under the custodianship of co-creators Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby. Back then, fans of the series could hardly wait for the next issue. Thor: The Dark World will leave audiences just as eager to see the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The three-day event is set for Friday, Nov. 22 through Sunday, Nov. 24 at the Long Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road. Hours that it will be open to the public are Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., with Santa arriving at 10 a.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $5, and kids age 10 and younger are free. Friday is senior day, where it is buy one ticket, get one free. This years theme is Santas Workshop, and in keeping with the theme, there will be a in for people to bring unwrapped presents for Toys for Tots. If people donate a toy, then their admission will be free. Friday, Nov. 22 is also the Premiere Night Gala, which begins at 7 p.m., and tickets cost $75. Junior tickets for people age 30 and younger cost $50. Tickets are available either online at www.uparcfoundation.org or even at the door. Premiere Night includes live music, dancing, and food from the following local restaurants: E&E Stakeout Grill, En Garde Catering, Bon Apptit, Island Way Grill, Marlin Darlin, Salt Rock Grill, Salt Rock Tavern, Clear Sky Beachside Caf, and Rumba Island Bar & Grill. Additionally, there will be two kinds of auctions. The live auction features numerous exciting prizes, including a Clearwater dolphin statue painted by UPARCs developmentally disabled clients. Other auction items include an experience for a child to be an honorary batboy or batgirl for the Tampa Bay Rays, and also a trip to Miami that includes a ride on the Goodyear blimp. The festival will have more than 100 trees and wreaths that members of the public, local businesses and organizations have donated, said Madison Hauenstein, development and communications coordinator for the UPARC Foundation. Some of the themes of the trees include North Pole Christmas; Hark the Champ-angel; Christmas Peace; A Candy Cane Christmas; Signs of City Elves, which is by the city of Clearwater and its mayor; Sandy Beach by the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce; The Old Red, White and Blue by MacDill Air Force Base families and personnel; and many others. On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a milk-and-cookie bar with Santa and live entertainment throughout the day. Not only is Festival of Trees a fun, family event, all of the proceeds benefit a good cause. One hundred percent of our proceeds stay here at the UPARC Foundation and go to UPARC to serve their programs, Hauenstein said. We serve about 300 people with developmental disabilities at three different day programs. One being at the Long Center in Clearwater. Thats our biggest facility. One is in Tarpon Springs and we have an art studio in Safety Harbor called Harborside Studios, and we also run 19 group homes. So many of our consumers who receive services from us during the day also live in some of our group homes where they receive 24-hour care from UPARC. The day centers consist of many opportunities and activities. At some of them, they receive piecemeal jobs from businesses in the communities where UPARC clients can come and work on the projects and earn an hourly wage. There are also development enrichment classes and activities for when UPARC clients retire, which is often around 45 years old when they start to slow down a little, Hauenstein said. Then they can participate in numerous outings in the community, classroom activities, crafts, physical activities and other opportunities. The art studio is another service offered to all ages. We have our art studio where they can grow and be enrichedFifth annual Sanding Ovations event setTREASURE ISLAND All it takes is a pile of sand, some buckets of water and lots of imagination to build a masterpiece at least for 10 master sculptors who return to Treasure Island for the fifth annual Sanding Ovations Masters Cup Sand Sculpture Competition and Music Festival Nov. 20-24. The top four sculptures and a peoples choice sculpture will be awarded more than $12,000 in cash prizes. The masterful exhibition of sand sculpting talent at the world-class level is the big appeal, supplemented by the giant sponsor sculpture created by Treasure Islands Meredith Corson and Dan Doubleday of Sanding Ovations professional sand sculptors. The popular event also includes a beach food court, an arts and crafts marketplace and three days of live music on the beach behind the Bilmar Beach Resort. When sculpting is done for the day and the sun sets, the stage lights go up when Sanding Ovations welcomes the hottest band in the bay, the Black Honkeys to the Bud Light Lime-a-Rita Stage at 8 p.m. on Friday. Opening for the Honkeys are the breakout band of the year, the ukulele funk of Applebutter Express, playing at 6 p.m. Saturday, the biggest day of the event, includes fireworks on the beach at 10 p.m., the Masters Cup awards presentation at 7 p.m. and an all-out party starting at 3 p.m. with Treasure Islands bluegrass rockers Cornfused. The always-popular Rocket Man Show, starring Rus Anderson as Elton John, is back by popular demand this year. Elton plays Saturday night at 8. Beach goers can kick back Sunday beginning at noon with WMNFs Pete Gallagher and the Florida Folk Show, followed by the eclectic funk of rising stars Come Back Alice at 2:30 p.m., and wrap up Sunday with rockin blues from the always-great Sarasota Slim at 4 p.m. Sanding Ovations Week kicks off with a party for the sculptors at the Crystal Sands Ballroom at the Bilmar Beach Resort, 10650 Gulf Blvd. in Treasure Island, on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 7 p.m. Admission is $5 and includes a spread of tasty hors doeuvres from Sloppy Joes Restaurant, along with an assortment of beers from Great Bay Distributors. Tickets are available at the door. This years lineup of sculptors includes reigning champ Jonathan Jobi Bouchard of Montreal, along with Benjamin Probanza of Acapulco, Mexico, whose surreal sculpture Fusion took top honor in the 2010 competition. Treasure Islands Dan Doubleday, a Sanding Ovations first-place winner from 2009, is back and 2011 winner Jan Selen of the Netherlands is back after a year of new baby duties. Rusty Croft, one of the Travel Channels newest personalities, is back for his fifth year. Dan Belcher, the third-place winner in 2011, makes his fourth visit and critter-trapper Chris Guinto and Marianne van den Broek breeze in from Key West to do some creature sculpting. Sue McGrew, quite possibly the worlds youngest professional sand sculptor, comes in from Tacoma, Wash., for her second year. Newcomer Elianne in her Veld of the Netherlands brings a serious challenge for the $12,000 prize money with her breathtaking detailed sculptures. Sanding Ovations is a City of Treasure Island Parks and Recreation Department event, sponsored in part by Bud Light Lime-a-Rita, and is free and open to the public. Parking is available at 110th Avenue and Gulf Boulevard for $15 or $10 at Treasure Island Park at 104th Avenue. For additional details, visit www.mytreasureisland.org or call 5474575, ext. 237. through art, through clay, through painting, Hauenstein said. They have a gallery where they can sell their art and 50 percent of the proceeds they keep for themselves, and the other half goes back to the studio to purchase supplies. The total UPARC budget is about $13 million, and it gets much of its funding through state and federal grants and the UPARC Foundation. Fundraising is also key, and each year it sets a goal of raising about $100,000 from the Festival of Trees. This year, UPARC has something else to celebrate in addition to the start of the holidays and the funds raised. This year for the Premiere Night, were celebrating UPARCs 50th anniversary, Hauenstein said. Its 50 years of service to people with developmental disabilities, and its pretty incredible that its been around as long as this and never discontinued services and has changed the lives of a lot of people. The executive director of UPARC will receive an award on Premiere night in addition to the rest of the festivities.

The show runs through Jan. 8. Numerous awards, workshops, and teaching experience give us accomplished artist Adamo, whose fine art treats us to watercolors Serving Time, a masterful application of reflections, and Buttercup, one of her many visits with a tree climbing friend. Mixed media Maya, overseer of King Tuts treasure and a glowing Aged in Oak give us harmonious palettes of color. Chase, a commercial artist and teacher, tries to infuse her art with the sheer exhilaration of the journey. Working with ink on canvas, she brings us aboard with Sunflowers, washed in a dazzling display of saturated hues. Her sensitivity to color and technique spills into Sunshine on a Stem and The Blaze of Trumpets. Composition complements form in Angel Trumpet. A people person and music lover, primarily self-taught artist Franks, with banjo and sketchbook in hand, gleans inspiration for her work from the art of living. ST. PETERSBURG A conversation with Christopher Still will be presented Tuesday, Nov. 19, 6:30 p.m., at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE. This Collectors Circle Lecture, sponsored by Northern Trust, is free and open to the public. Still is a quintessential Florida artist, as he paints about the state he loves. The conversation will offer a rare glimpse into his inspiration and work. A native of the Tampa Bay area, Still received a full scholarship through a national competition to attend the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he received his bachelors degree in fine arts. While there, he was recognized for outstanding accomplishment in painting and received the Pennsylvania Governors Award for fine art. He also took courses in human anatomy at Jefferson Medical School and completed an apprenticeship in Florence, Italy. Still returned to Tampa Bay in 1986 and has a studio in Tarpon Springs. He is represented in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the Florida Governors Mansion, and the Polk Museum of Art, among others. His painting, Orchids (1991), which seems to burst from the frame, is part of the MFA collection. His work has been part of exhibitions at museums around the state and across the country. His commissions have encompassed paintings for St. Petersburg City Hall, 10 murals for Floridas House of Representatives, and the official portrait of legendary Gov. Lawton Chiles. He also created a large-scale painting and sculpture for the Tampa International Airport and the 25th anniversary painting for Ruth Eckerd Hall. In 2010, he was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame at 49, the youngest ever to receive this distinction. Call 896-2667 or visit www.fine-arts.org.

Look for links to the online calendars in the left column. Her work shines in acrylics Memories, a once upon a time entrance into the Cole Brothers Circus, and Cabin in the Gardens. A pen and ink sketch of Lawrence Olivier in The Legend and a striking pastel Warrior showcase her versatility. Award winning pastel portrait artist Marsh attempts to capture that illusive spirit which breathes life into her work, as in a glowing Lady with a Fan, after the French Impressionist Renoir. With subtle strokes, she creates a comely, daydreaming Nicole. Young Man reflects layers of prismatic hues. Vibrant complements spark the mood of Fed Up in D.C.? Acrylic artist Vanasse, who teaches our Bay Pines Center veterans, gives us with a limited palette, a thought provoking The Door. Strong values and dynamic composition energize Tampa Bay Lights in contrast to Fisherman, a placid scene filled with soft transparent layers of color. A unique textured effect, combining forest debris with acrylics, adds to the chill of a winter Forest. The Treasure Island Community Center is located on 106th Avenue just east of Gulf Boulevard. Call 547-4575 for hours of operation. The Treasure Island Art Guilds holiday art show includes Serving Time by Eleanor Adamo, shown at top left, Warrior by Diann Franks, shown above, and Sunflowers by Pat Chase, shown at left.

It isnt the first time West Coast Players has staged a musical, but it isnt something the theater is necessarily known for doing on a regular basis. WCP is known for taking chances, though and for bringing to the stage productions that are at times bold, often unconventional and sometimes a bit cheeky. The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) fits that last descriptor perfectly and, as such, is a perfect fit for WCP. The show runs through Nov. 24 at West Coast Players, 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call 437-2363 or visit www.wcplayers.org. Be forewarned: Theres little spectacle in The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) instead, its all about melodic parodies. The stage is sparsely adorned with only rudimentary props. The recurring melodramatic plot is drolly simplistic. The show is a clever concoction written by composer Eric Rockwell and lyricist Joanne Bogart. The two take to task some of the true titans of musical theater, lampooning their signature styles. Their targets include Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and John Kander and Fred Ebb. Back in 2005, I saw this show in New York in a tiny off-Broadway theater, writes director Domenic Bisesti in his message to the audience. Having grown up loving musicals, all the references and one-liners made a night full of memories and recollections. I hope that we are recreating the magic I felt all those years ago. Bisesti and his fine cast do more than just evoke memories. WCPs production of The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is wildly entertaining, full of zany characters and affectionate satire. The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is divided into five minimusicals, each revolving around the same story but boasting a different musical style. The story is about a young woman the ingnue who cant pay her rent. The villain is a dastardly landlord. Theres a hero, of course, as well as a matron an older woman who offers advice of varying value to the leading lady. Amy Dobbert plays the ingnue. Dobbert recently won a STAR Award for Favorite Actress in Musical for her performance in Eight OClock Theatres production of Forbidden Broadway, another show that lampoons Broadways greatest musical legends. In this production, she is just as enjoyable and effective. In her role, Dobbert has a wide array of personalities to portray, from the unsophisticated June in Corn, in the style of Rodgers and Hammerstein, to the wicked Juny in Speakeasy, in the style of Kander and Ebb. The matron is portrayed by Susan Jones Williams. Williams has apparently been away from the stage for some time. She pursued a full time career as a vocalist, raised a family and sang at the Wine Cellar for 16 years. In this production of The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), she gives little doubt that she still has what it takes to make it in theater. Brian Chunn does a great job depicting the multiple faces of the storys hero. In Corn, he is hysterically goofy as Big Willy and blissfully brooding in A Little Complex, in the style of Stephen Sondheim. Dave Russells villain is consistently naughty, ranging from devious to criminally insane depending upon the sequence. Russell serves up a hilariously twisted phantom of the opera and a thoroughly naughty and multilingual cabaret master of ceremonies in Speakeasy. Bisesti is omnipresent, acting as narrator. Hes particularly playful with his cast (and with Eriene LeGendre, the shows musical director and pianist), which is a constant reminder that the The Musical of Musical (The Musical!) exists to poke fun at the genre as well as those who perpetuate it. The final number, Done, even sends up the audience to some degree. Even though its a parody, the show is demanding: The cast proves its versatility crafting different aspects of the archetypes. Each member possesses spot-on comic timing. As vocalists, they all do a marvelous job. The wonderfully overstated characters and inspired comical lyrics simultaneously satirize and pay homage to Broadways musical icons. Granted, those not familiar with the source material may not get all the references but The Musical of Musicals (The Musical) is still witty enough with its discordant puns and comical caricatures to induce plenty of laughs. The show is delectable silliness and classy spoof a fun treat featuring some very talented individuals.
