Pinellas rakes in record tourismTax collections soar as more visitors than ever visited in the third quarter By SUZETTE PORTERState and local officials are celebrating a banner year for tourism. More people visited Florida during the third quarter of 2013 than ever before, according to preliminary estimates released Nov. 15 by Visit Florida, the states tourism marketing corporation. About 22.9 million visitors came to Florida from July to September, an increase of 1.7 percent over the same time last year. Because every 85 visitors to our state supports one Florida job; a growing tourism industry equates to more jobs for Florida families and a stronger economy, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release. Estimates show that 72.6 million visitors made Florida their destination through the first three quarters of 2013 up 3.4 percent over last year. Visitor spending from January through August statewide was $51.8 billion, a year-over-year increase of 5.8 percent. Direct travel-related employment grew by 2.8 percent, providing an additional 29,700 jobs. So far this year, were up nearly 2.5 million visitors who increased their spending by almost $3 billion, led by a double digit increase in international visitors, said Tammy Gustafson, chair of Visit Floridas board of directors. This continued momentum is a testament to the strength of Visit Floridas marketing efforts, the power of the Sunshine State brand and the dedication of the nearly 1.1 million Floridians who work in the states tourism industry. According to Visit Florida, 19.5 million domestic visitors came to Florida during the third quarter of 2013 a 0.5 percent increase over 2012.

I have been designing and creating since I was a little child, Svyatogor said. I remember crafting dolls from hay and plants and then hand-sewing dresses for them. Svyatogor was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. Her affinity for creativity now apparent in her evening gowns, masquerade costumes, gothic garb, corsetry and even fetish wear started with her family. Both of her parents and her grandmother were artistic people. I inherited a functional toy sewing machine that my mom used to play with when she was a child and started using it for my fashion projects. Then I learned how to knit and crochet from my grandmother, she explained. I was making all sorts of wearable things for myself and my family. Even my macram skills I applied to fashion, making and wearing dresses out of ropes, especially during my hippie years. Svyatogor has lived in Largo for most of the 15 years shes been in the United States. Yet the fact that she hails from the land of caviar and Catherine the Great is apparent in some of Svyatogors designs. Since shePhoto by ANNA KOTLOVA PHOTOGRAPHY Photo by BRETT BRANNINGAbove, fashion designer Ioulia Svyatogor of Largo, shown here modeling one of her own creations, says she likes melding vastly different styles.

Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, the countys destination marketing organization, uses sun and fun to entice visitors to head to Pinellas during the winter months. Photo by WAYNE CATHELA sinkhole formed in the backyard of this home on Robmar Road. By TOM GERMONDDUNEDIN A sinkhole that caused the loss of two homes in a subdivision off Pinehurst Road continued to expand Nov. 14, but nobody was hurt. The sinkhole, which was 60 feet wide by 40 to 50 feet deep by the morning of Nov. 14, formed off Robmar Road, leading to the evacuation of seven homes, four on Robmar Road and three on Mary Jane Lane. Its increasing as we speak, said Dunedin Fire Chief Jeff Parks, who was at the scene along with firefighters, Pinellas Sheriffs Office personnel and other officials. The fire department received a call at 5:40 a.m. Nov. 14. At the one home at 1112 Robmar, the daughter heard a noise that sounded like somebody breaking in the back. The father went out there. Thats when he found the hole. He called us and the sheriffs department and we evacuated the buildings when we got here, Parks said. Between 10 and 11 a.m., the numerous news reporters on the scene heard the sound of what appeared to be glass or tile shattering. The hole was expanding somewhat to the north of the homes on Robmar Road and further to the west, Parks said. The back roof on the back corner of the second structure within an hour will be in the hole, he said Nov. 14. However, he said no other residents were expected to be evacuated. Emergency personnel had put up barricades, and work crews brought in a frontend loader to remove a boat that was in danger of falling into the sinkhole. Demolition crews removed the two severely damaged homes Nov. 15. Information on sink hole activity is available at 737 Louden Ave. Call City Engineering at 298-3178 or email: tburke @dunedinfl.net with any concerns/questions. A neighbor expressed concern about more sinkholes forming along her street.Largo commission considers possible noise ordinance By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO After debating the feasibility of defending a local noise ordinance in court, Largo commissioners decided to wait until legislators clarified a state statute that was declared unconstitutional. Commissioners were hoping to give Largo police officers another tool to target drivers disturbing others with loud music. In particular, Commissioner Curtis Holmes said he had been waiting years for the chance to address the issue. However, City Attorney Alan Zimmet advised caution, warning that the commissioners should not be surprised if the city got caught in a lengthy trial defending the ordinance. Its expensive to defend those; they are frequently appealed, he said. Commissioner Michael Smith asked Police Chief Jeff Undestad how frequently officers were called to address noise from vehicles. Undestad said it depended on the season, which would dictate if more windows were rolled down, but it did happen all over the city. Its not, I would say, one of the hugest problems that were facing right now, he said. Undestad conceded that the standing state statute was tough to enforce, but said a local ordinance was more time consuming for officers, just in the extra paperwork required to cite a violator. The police department does have a vehicle noise complaint form that residents can use to report disturbances. The traffic division tracks the complaints by license plates and sends a letter to offenders, warning them of the complaints. The problem usually resolves itself, because folks dont want to be a nuisance to their neighbors, said Sgt. George Edmiston of the traffic division.

4A Largo Leader, November 21, 2013studied fashion and design in her native Moscow and graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa, its natural that the Old and New Worlds collide in her fashions. I like integrating different cultures for example, Victorian and futuristic cyber, or traditional classic with underground alternative. It makes for a unique and fun mixture, she said. Svyatogors avant-garde apparel includes everything from spiked corsets to dragon-patterned jackets in her arsenal. Her innovative wearable art has turned heads at shows and exhibitions such as Busch Gardens House of Vayne Fashion Show, featured in the parks 2009 Howl-O-Scream event. For a 2011 show Closet Artists: Art to Wear in St. Petersburg, she created several one-of-a-kind pieces including a dress made almost entirely out of red zippers. As head designer at Designs to Shine, a Pinellas Park-based business which sells distinctive ballroom gowns and dancewear, Svyatogor secured a spot on a team, which created attire for national TV, shows Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance? It is always exciting to see your creations on TV, but I feel the most satisfaction and fulfillment when I see people become instantly inspired and even empowered to dance and perform better while wearing my creations, she said. My goal is to create gowns in a way that when you put them on, you cant help but to want to start dancing and smiling. Svyatogor also is quite adept at making leather crafts, elaborate masks, elegant jewelry and stained glass art objects, which are also functional. I make fused glass air plant or orchid holders that you hang in the garden, and the stained glass looks so beautiful sparkling in the sun and moonlight, she said. It has also proven to be very good for the plants as they have all blossomed ever since I placed them in these glass holders. They provide just the right support, air circulation and moisture access for the plants to feel happy in them. Plus, they look pretty. Svyatogor is the owner of the Purring Angels Cattery, a homebased labor of love where she specializes in raising tiny teacup and toy-sized cats. One of the breeds, the lambkin, almost no one else in the country has, she said. They are just starting to become known in big part thanks to my cattery, Svyatogor said. Animal Planet even filmed part of an episode of Cats 101 on the Lambkin breed in her home. Kid inventors, designers awarded in recycling contestsLARGO The city of Largo announced the winners of its fifth annual Recycled Innovations Contest on the CBS mid-day television program, Studio 10, in celebration of America Recycles Day Nov. 15. Local junk geniuses were challenged to construct useful items consisting of at least 75 percent otherwise discarded material. Largo Recycles Facebook friends voted for their favorites by liking pictures of the inventions. The winners, in their respective age category, are as follows: Tiny Inventor : Nicolette Handza made an office supply organizer out of a tissue box, paper towel roll and a plastic container. Junior Innovator : Ian Millers bird feeder made branches, a milk carton and old shoelaces was declared the winner, and Grace Williams Halloween recycled T-shirt quilt was named the runner up. Tween Innovator: Carson Vescovi made a fishing cart with bait bucket out of PVC pipe, a rolling crate, water bottles, a plastic jug and zip ties. Ingenious Innovator : Meaghan Ryan made a purse out of magazines. Carsons invention received the most likes during the Nov. 1-12 voting period. The junior and tween age categories had the fiercest competition. Many of the contestants, and three of the winners, were from Amy Pipers classes at Country Day School. This contest is such a valuable lesson to teach kids and adults about being responsible for their waste, Largo recycling coordinator Marissa Segunda stated. To see all of the entries, visit www.facebook.com/ LargoRecycles. The citys recycling division announced the results of their Largo Recycles More billboard contest last month. Almost 200 students, grades kindergarten through fifth grade, entered the contest, creating a billboard design their passion for recycling and Largos new recycling program. The winners were Jiliene Bronto, 10, of Pinellas Primary Academy and Tiffany Zhou, 10, of Ridgecrest Elementary. The eight-week billboard campaign will start in January and help promote Largos new expanded recycling program. Starting in February of 2014, recycling will be collected in a large wheeled cart instead of a recycling bin to make it easier for families to recycle. The city of Largo also will be adding more materials to its collection, including plastics numbered 1 through 7, paper cartons and colored glass. For more information about Largos recycling efforts, visit LargoRecycles.com.The city also announced the winners of the Largo Recycles More billboard contest. The winning designs belong to Tiffany Zhou, shown above, and Jiliene Bronto, shown below.

Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin welcomed more visitors than any other state park in Florida for the seventh year in a row with more than 1 million visitors and more than $46.3 million in direct economic impact. Record visitor numbers equate to record spending, said Will Seccombe, president and CEO of Visit Florida. With taxable sales up, occupancy rates up, rental car collections up, bed taxes up and average daily room rates up, Floridas tourism industry has never been stronger.Pinellas enjoys record-setting yearPinellas County officials also are celebrating a new record. Bed tax collections topped $31 million during fiscal year 2013 the highest in the countys history. The Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office reported Nov. 5 that over a three-year period, 2011 to 2013, bed tax collections have increased, 7.7 percent in 2011, 12.3 percent in 2012 and another 8 percent in 2013. According to D.T. Minich, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater executive director, reaching the $30 million level is a significant milestone. Collecting $30,000 in bed tax allows Pinellas to meet the states criteria of a high impact tourism county. Local officials could add an additional penny to its bed tax, an increase from five cents to six cents. Bed tax collections pay for tourism marketing, beach restoration, bonds on area sports stadiums and other tourism-related initiatives under the direction of the countys Convention and Visitors Bureau. Fifty-three percent of the tax goes to marketing and operations, 20 percent to debt service, 16 percent to reserves, 9 percent to beach nourishment and 2 percent pays for the Tax Collectors services. Minich attributes marketing efforts by Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, the countys destination marketing organization, for the record year. This is a result of aggressive marketing and very targeted messaging, Minich said. A lot has changed during the past several years, including our marketing approach. Were not relying on print as much, which gives us the ability to better target online within our feeder markets. Visit St. Pete/Clearwater revealed its marketing plan for 2014 on Nov. 13. The plan includes a first-of-its-kind nationwide marketing partnership with Floridas Natural, workplace elevator videos and snow-centric guerrilla marketing in cold-weather feeder markets and a continued evolution of the St. Pete/Clearwater brand that encourages visitors to Live Amplified, according to a press release. Officials say the new direction showcases the youthful vibrancy and diversity visitors experience in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, from soaking in the sunshine to rocking a kayak through mangroves to diving into the mind of Dali. Weve worked very hard to re-invent the St. Pete/Clearwater brand over the last six years, said VSPC Deputy Director David Downing. So this amped-up evolution is built upon a solid foundation, one based on market research and proven results of consistent tourism growth across our target markets. The plan also incorporates a shot of adrenaline for St. Pete/Clearwater logo, which will be bursting into 3-D print, and pulsing and spinning via animation in video and online. The logo will appear on 12 million Floridas Natural orange juice cartons in supermarkets throughout the United States starting in January. A St. Pete/Clearwater vacation sweepstakes teaser will appear on the front panel of the cartons, and a side panel ad will encourage people to enter for a chance to win a trip to the natural choice for a beach getaway. St. Pete/Clearwater is ready to begin its winter marketing campaign in New York and Chicago. Street-level advertising in Toronto will entice visitors with slogans such as We salt margaritas, not sidewalks. TOURISM, from page 1A My kitties were the stars in it, she said with a smile. The rare breed cats, like her art, are for sale, and Svyatogor has even shipped the kittens to such faraway places as Brazil and South Korea in order to find them good homes. To see them, visit purringan gelscattery.com. Even when she is not busy raising rare kittens, conceptualizing fashions or crafting collectibles, Svyatogor always seems to find herself drawn to the world of art. I love visiting galleries, attending art shows and going to costumed and themed events and masquerades, she said. Pretty much anything creative is always of interest to me anything I can learn from, anything that is beautiful, pure, unordinary, meaningful, artistic and inspiring.

She also owns a cat breed business. At right, Tara Lightfoot models one of Ioulia Svyatogors designs. NOISE, from page 1ACommissioner Jamie Robinson admitted to a potentially loud car stereo in the past, but argued that any driver playing loud music only disturbs residents for a few moments while he or she drives by, or for two or three minutes at a stoplight. He was against creating an ordinance when the state statute provided a better process. I have no interest in seeing anything like this at all. I dont understand why we would want to burden the police, he said. Commissioner Robert Murray agreed on the same basis any potential disturbance the ordinance could address would be temporary. I dont think its worth proceeding on this case, for somethings thats temporary, he said. Holmes disagreed. When you have 20 or 30 temporary (disturbances) a day go by your house at 3 oclock in the morning change rattling on your dresser because some moron driving down the road with his blasters on so loud its unbelievable you may think differently about this, he said. Government had an obligation to ensure domestic tranquility, which was violated by drivers with loud music, he argued. Still, Holmes wasnt in favor of attracting excess litigation and agreed that the issue could wait for state clarification. I think somewhere down the road, we really need to address this thing. I am not the Lone Ranger of this. There are plenty of folks that are really chapped about this deal, he said. Im tired of hearing about this. I get calls in my office: When are you going to do something about this? Mayor Pat Gerard said she understood Holmes distress. Its unfortunate that some people are jerks, she said.Mixed recycling moves forwardThe city of Largo will be dropping off the wider range of recyclable materials it plans on collecting in February to the Progressive Waste Solutions facility in downtown St. Petersburg. The commission approved a five-year contract with the company that currently provides the same service to Hillsborough County. Were excited about the partnership, said Ian Boyle, government affairs manager for Progressive Waste Solutions. The city estimates that its three recycle trucks will make the 28-minute trip to the facility at 1190 20th St. N. twice a day each. The company will charge the city a contractor fee of $50 per ton of materials, subtracted from a calculated market value of the recyclables it collects each month.Pending annexations studiedThe commissioners also heard a report from St. Petersburg College public policy student Michele Gray, who conducted a survey to determine the impact of more than 300 impending annexations on city departments. Her findings will assist in next years citywide report on the departments ability to serve the new residents and businesses. Shes been very helpful and insightful, said Teresa Brydon, economic development manager. The city has been weighing how to best handle the excess of annexation agreements properties that are receiving city services but dont have to pay city taxes until an ordinance officially moves the city boundaries. Due to budget cuts, the city does not have a dedicated staff person to process the requests. The more than 300 agreements currently on file could take up to three years to process, and the city receives new agreements every month. Gray cautioned the city to not terminate any agreements, so as not to tarnish any future relationships. She recommended the city eliminate redundancies, particularly by creating a single spreadsheet that would contain all the necessary information for annexations and travel between departments, rather than each department maintaining their own spreadsheet. Gray also agreed with a commissioners suggestion of a temporary hold on new voluntary annexation agreements. An unpaid intern position that would transition into a part-time job could begin the work of processing grouped annexations, she said. Brydon said city staff would be presenting a new report on the progress of the annexations in January, at which time the commission could discuss potential new policies. CorrectionThe story, Traveling wall gives tribute to vets, in the Largo Leader Nov. 14, incorrectly identified the hometown of David Knox, a casualty in the Vietnam War. It is Dolton, Ill.

President Barack Obama signed legislation Nov. 13 by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and others to rename the Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medical Center in Florida after the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young. Nelson, who serves as a senior member of the Senates Armed Services Committee, was able to fast track the bill through the Senate, where it was approved Oct. 31 following House passage the week before. President Obama signed the bill Nov. 13. This is a fitting way to recognize Bill Youngs extraordinary legacy of public service and his unwavering support of our veterans, Nelson said. After 42 years in Congress, Young died Oct. 18 and was laid to rest in the Bay Pines National Cemetery Oct. 24 adjacent to the medical center that will now bear his name. According to the legislation, the Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Bay Pines is now known as the C.W. Bill Young Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center.Qualifying ends for District 13 House seatProspective candidates had only 30 hours to qualify with the state Division of Elections to run in the Jan. 14, 2014 special primary election to fill the position left vacant when Young died Oct. 18. The qualifying period began at 8 a.m. Monday and ended at noon Tuesday, Nov. 19. According to information posted at election.do s.state.fl.us, six candidates qualified by the deadline. Alex Sink, who lists her address as a P.O. Box in Clearwater, is the sole candidate for the Democrats. She qualified by paying a fee of $10,440. Lucas Overby of Clearwater, who represents the Libertarian Party of Florida, also qualified by paying a fee. Michael S. Levinson of St. Petersburg qualified as a write-in candidate. Three candidates qualified on the Republican side by paying the fee. Candidates include Mark Bircher of Seminole, David Jolly of Indian Rocks Beach and Kathleen Peters of South Pasadena. If its here, its there, said Debbie Beseth, who has lived on the street since 1991. Yesterday (Nov. 13) they were bringing cement trucks in and I didnt know what was going on down here, she said. I didnt know it was construction. The neighborhood is usually quiet, she said. Tammy and Chris Ehmig live two doors away from one of the homes that were evacuated. Waking up at about 6 a.m., Chris saw these red flashing lights all over the front yard. I thought, ah man, somebodys hurt, or somethings bad happening. We came outside; there were helicopters, fire trucks all up and down the road, he said. The Ehmigs are concerned about their neighbors. They are friends. They are losing a lot. Its heartbreaking, Tammy said. But thank God, everybody got out safe. One of the houses thats really crumbling on the back side they were able to get their grandson out and everybodys OK. Tammy said about 11 or 12 years ago, a large sinkhole formed at Pinehurst and Robmar roads. It swallowed up half of a neighbors yard and the whole middle of the street, she said. Despite the sinkholes, the Ehmigs dont plan to relocate. Its part of living in Florida, Tammy said. SINKHOLE, from page 1AEndorsements coming in for Greenlight PinellasCLEARWATER After working with partners and colleagues for months to help craft a comprehensive transportation plan for the future of Pinellas County, members of the Greenlight Council fully endorsed the transportation blueprint they helped create during a Nov. 6 meeting at Pinellas Realtors Association, 4590 Ulmerton Road. The Greenlight Council, made up of local civic, business and government leaders, had asked for independent validation of financial assumptions for parts of the plan before granting approval. Those portions involve plans outlining proposed bus improvements and the implementation of a future light rail line. Scrubbing the numbers and being able to answer the publics question, If I give you my penny, can you do what you say youre going to do? with a resounding yes is very important and unusual, said Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority Chairman Ronnie Duncan. Its unusual to do this kind of detailed analysis at this point in the process and for that I commend PSTA and its partners in this process. After receiving validation of the Greenlight Pinellas financial assumptions from experts at Ernst and Young and HNTB Corporation, the council unanimously voted to endorse the plan. Members will now take the plan to Pinellas County Commissioners and request that a funding proposal be placed on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot. Over the next few weeks, county staff will work with PSTA to craft ballot language for the referendum asking voters to change transit funding in Pinellas County from its current .7305 mill property tax to a one percent sales tax. That process will include a Commission workshop on Dec. 3 and a public hearing tentatively scheduled for Dec. 10. To learn more about the plan, along with supporting study documentation, visit www.greenlightpinellas.com. PSTA ridership continues to growST. PETERSBURG On the heels of a new annual record for all-time ridership, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority continues to post exceptionally strong ridership numbers as it starts its new fiscal year. In October, the agency provided 1,278,051 rides making for the second highest total for October in agency history. October 2012 was highest ever. PSTA officials said although ridership was up on their regular routes last month, the temporary closing of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for a movie shoot dropped shuttle ridership between CMA and Winters Dolphin Tale Adventure by more than 15,000 as compared to October 2012. When you consider the probable impact the new movie will have on our economy, the short term dip in ridership is nothing compared to the increases that were expecting after the movie opens, said PSTA spokesperson Bob Lasher. PSTA leaders continue working to find ways to meet the growing demand for ridership and to ease overcrowding on many routes. Our Suncoast Beach Trolley vehicles have 30 seats on every bus. When I rode from Pier 60 to Clearwater on Oct. 26, there were 34 other people waiting at my stop, Lasher said. And, all but three or four were commuters. Agency leaders are also encouraged by the fact that the demand for service remains strong even though fuel prices have dropped precipitously over the past few weeks. They say that its very common for riders to continue using transit when fuel prices drop, since monthly bus passes are still cheaper than the average fill-up and they enjoy the stress relief of not having to drive on crowded roads.

Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced that early voting is scheduled from Jan. 4-12, 2014. Florida is a closed primary state, meaning only voters registered with a political party can vote within their partys primary election. In other words, only registered Republicans can vote in the Republican primary. Mail ballots are tentatively scheduled to go out beginning Nov. 27 for overseas and absent military with ballots for voters in Pinellas County scheduled for mailing on Dec. 13. The deadline to register to vote in the primary election is Dec. 16. The last day to change party affiliations also is Dec. 16. The special general election is scheduled on March 11, 2014.

Its a tradition, and its humbling, said Major Sean Jowell, with the Sheriffs Office Support Services, who has participated in Ride & Run with the Stars for more years than he can remember. This years event is Saturday, Dec. 7, 8 a.m. to noon, at Fort De Soto Park. Ride & Run with the Stars has taken place the first Saturday in December since 1983. The event was the brainchild of three former deputies, Michael Platt, Scott Stiner and Gary Herbine. Back in those days, employees of the Sheriffs Office would donate their own money to try to help families and children they knew needed help, especially during the holidays. But the need was too great. They couldnt do enough on their own. So, Platt, who retired as a captain and now works at the Sheriffs Office as range master, Stiner, now a retired captain, and Herbine, a retired lieutenant, came up with the idea to have a bicycle riding event at Fort De Soto to raise money for the children. It was a very simple thing, but it really took off and grew, Jowell said. Now, its the 20th anniversary. The event is the largest law enforcement organized holiday charity fundraiser in the Tampa Bay area. Over the years, more than $500,000 in donations and proceeds have gone to the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project. The money helps fulfill the wish lists of children, some known to the Sheriffs Office because they were involved with cases of violent crime. Others may come from families who were victims of economic crime. All have interacted with the sheriffs office for some reason. The families fill out an application and provide a wish list of needs. Members of the Christmas Sharing Project closely vet each family to make sure they arent getting help elsewhere and truly have a need. We spend hours going over the applications, Jowell said. The children dont ask for anything big, he said. The wish lists dont include the latest gaming console or newest phone. Its humbling to see that, he said. They ask for clothes, underwear, socks. We have teens asking for their very first bike. They ask for simple things. For the past few years, Bechtel Financial has donated bicycles and others have donated helmets. Jowell said Bechtel would be donating bicycles again this year. Helmets will come from the sheriffs office. No monetary goal has been set for this years event, just as much as we can possibly get, Jowell said. In recent years, the Ride & Run with the Stars has brought in between $40,000 to $50,000. More than a 100 volunteers from the sheriffs agency and others will gather at the Target on Tyrone Boulevard, which will open two hours early Dec. 17, to shop for each child on their list. It is likely that some wont get everything they requested. We purchase as much as we can, he said. It all depends on the number of children. Any leftover money pays for food for a holiday meal. Jowell said the sheriffs office usually collaborates with a local grocery store, in past years it has been Publix. Families get a gift certificate they can use to buy a turkey and sides. Prior to Christmas Day, Community Policing deputies play Santa and personally deliver the gifts to the families. Theyre all appreciative of what they receive, Jowell said. These families dont have a sense of entitlement.About the eventJowell said planning for Ride & Run with the Stars is a year-round activity, which contributes to its success. The main events focus on bicycling, running and walking. All activities are within Fort De Soto Park. Registration begins at 7 a.m. Dec. 7. Advance registration is available online at www.rideandrunwiththestars.com or pick up a form at the Sheriffs Office, 10750 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Registration fee is $35 a person, which includes the selected race, a long-sleeve logo T-shirt (for the first 750 registrants), food and giveaways. For the $35 fee, participants can choose between the 25 mile run, which begins at 8 a.m.; a 10K Family Bike Ride, which starts at 8:15 a.m.; 5K certified race, which begins at 8:30 a.m.; or the 1-mile fun walk/skate, with a start time of 8:45 a.m. Parking fees at Fort De Soto Park are waived for registered participants. Jowell said the 5K chipped race was a first-time event. The electronic chips will accurately monitor each runners time. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded in each age group. He said the new event was part of the effort to make the event better every year. Lots of activities are planned and everyone is welcome whether theyHoliday fundraiser celebrates 20th anniversaryRide & Run with the Stars, set for Dec. 7 this year, raises funds for the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project Photo courtesy of PCSOBicyclists pass under the Ride & Run with the Stars banner as they participate in a past event at Fort De Soto Park.

After three years of steady increases 6.1 percent, 8.9 percent and 7.8 percent, respectively the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) approved a meager 0.7 percent increase for the coming year. Several days ago, the Office of Insurance Regulation signaled they would only accept a 0.7 percent increase, and last week OIR approved the amended rate filing. Chambers of commerce have been a major force helping lead the fight to reduce rates over the past few years. Earlier this year, the Florida Legislature passed SB 662 designed to close a drug repackaging loophole. When signed into law by Governor Rick Scott, workers compensation insurance rates declined by 0.7 percent, which is why rates will remain flat in 2014. The effort of the Florida Chamber on the drug repackaging bill alone meant savings for Floridas businesses of $20 million per year in reduced workers compensation insurance rates Supporting Business & CommunityWe salute the following businesses and organizations that joined or renewed their association with the Chamber during the past month.

The Bowboard merges a bow, frame and spiral gearing mechanism that moves you forward when stepping on the bow. While it shares elements with bicycles, kick scooters and skateboards, its main method of propulsion is completely revolutionary. Theres no pedals, no chains, no motor, no batteries, no sprockets, said Brian Gallagher in a press release. Gallagher is CEO of Bowboard. Its just gravity and you. When riding on the Bowboard its patented technology converts the riders body weight and bouncing motion into forward movement. According to the press release, the underlying idea behind the development of the Bowboard was to design a product that would be both fun and fast to ride, while also possessing that cool factor kids demand. After seven years of hard-work and dedication, the team behind Bowboard is ready to reveal it to the public. Shying away from corporate America, the Bowboard project was launched on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter.com. We want to be backed by those who believe in Bowboard as a safe, fun and alternative way to travel, said Gallagher.Salon West stylists attend Redken ExchangeSeveral Salon West stylists recently sharpened their skills at The Redken Exchange in New York City.

Operation Safe Families concludedLARGO Sheriff Bob Gualtieri recently announced the results of Operation Safe Families, a month-long Florida Sheriffs Task Force statewide operation targeting subjects wanted for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-support. Operation Safe Families began on Oct. 13 and ran through Saturday, Nov. 9. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcements 2012 Uniform Crime Report, 108,046 domestic violence offenses were reported to law enforcement agencies last year, and 202 individuals died as a result of domestic violence, which represents approximately 20 percent of all homicides in the state of Florida. In an effort to create a renewed consciousness and make the public aware of the very serious problem of domestic violence, the Florida Sheriffs Task Force launched Operation Safe Families. The initiative set out to target two classes of fugitives outstanding warrants for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-payment of child support. Across the state, 33 sheriffs offices joined the effort. The month-long operation resulted in more than 5,500 arrest charges, including service of 387 domestic violence warrants and 772 writs of bodily attachment. The unified effort also was successful in making 2,586 probable cause arrests for domestic violence and in placing 89 children into protective custody. Additional arrests stem from other domestic violence related charges, among them resisting arrest with violence and without violence. Domestic violence impacts the lives of countless families and innocent children. Besides the immediate physical pain and emotional trauma often caused by domestic violence, I am greatly concerned because it is a cyclical behavior that harms the growth and development of the next generation our children. While the formal task force known as Operation Safe Families has ended, citizens should rest assured knowing that no matter what day it is, the sheriffs of Florida will continue working to combat domestic violence, Gualtieri said. The partnership between law enforcement agencies, certified domestic violence centers and the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence is critical in our collective efforts to ensure that perpetrators are held accountable for their violence. We always encourage anyone needing assistance to contact their local certified domestic violence center or the statewide Florida Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-500-1119, said Tiffany Carr, president and CEO for the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence. By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri notified his staff Nov. 11 of a new zero-tolerance DUI policy. Driving while impaired by alcohol or controlled substances is not only illegal, it is dangerous and causes serious injury and death, Gualtieri said in his written notice. As members of law enforcement we must set an example for our community and adhere personally to the laws we enforce. Moreover, we must do the right thing and driving while impaired is doing the wrong thing. Every person who drives while impaired makes the bad decision to do so it is a conscious decision and a choice that disregards human life. Before Gualtieri changed the policy, members of the sheriffs office charged with a DUI would receive a seven-day suspension if they had no prior disciplines on their record. The existing general orders allows a discipline range from a seven-day suspension to termination. Gualtieri said, We have experienced more member involved DUIs recently, this troubles me greatly and it is something that must stop. Again the decision to drive impaired is a conscious decision and one that can easily be avoided. Gualtieri said the new policy applied only to DUI charges after the new policy went into effect Nov. 11. He communicated the new policy so everyone was aware in advance of the consequences of their actions. Effective immediately I will no longer impose the minimum seven-day suspension for DUIs and the consequence for any member of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office who operates a vehicle while above the legal alcohol limit of .08 percent blood alcohol content, or is convicted of a DUI will be termination of employment, Gualtieri said. This will be automatic and exceptions will not be made for anyone regardless of rank or position within the agency. Gualtieri said if a member of the sheriffs office refuses to blow during the criminal investigation, as is done now, a member of the Administrative Investigative Division would go to the jail and require an administrative blow. If the blow shows an alcohol level of .08 percent or higher, the employee would be terminated. I never want to be in the position of having to terminate anyones employment; however, I also do not want to be the one knocking on the door of someones home at 2 a.m. telling them that their loved one was killed by a DUI driver especially one that works for PCSO. There is an easy solution to avoid any consequence of this new policy dont drive while impaired. her on multiple occasions at a private residence in Pinellas County. Detectives continued their investigation through the month of October and obtained a warrant for the suspect on Oct. 28. Detectives contacted Willis Tuesday, Nov. 12, in Sumter County. Willis denied the allegations. Willis was arrested and is currently being held at the Sumter County Jail.Students hospitalized after taking drugsSEMINOLE Five students at Seminole Middle School ended up at a local hospital Monday afternoon after they ingested prescription medications illegally brought to school by a classmate. Elizabeth Sauls, 14, of Madeira Beach, an eighth grade student at the middle school, 8701 131st St. N., brought the prescription medication hydroxyzine, which she took from her parents, to the school this morning. She distributed the medication to at least four other female eighth graders, and she took the drug herself. Later in the afternoon, the five teens began to feel ill. They were taken to a local hospital about 2 p.m. as a precaution. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported Monday evening that their condition was non-life-threatening. Sauls will be charged with one felony count of dispensing medication without a license and a misdemeanor count of possession of a prescription medication without a prescription. According to drugs.com, hydroxyzine reduces activity in the central nervous system. Hydroxyzine can cause side effects that may impair thinking or reactions, among other things.Man arrested in accidental shootingSEMINOLE A Seminole man was arrested Nov. 18 after accidentally shooting a 17 year old under his care. James Harrison Wolf, who has prior convictions of crimes in California, is being held on $7,500 bond at the Pinellas County Jail. He is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Wolf also is a registered sex offender. According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives the shooting happened just before midnight Sunday, Nov. 17, at a private residence on Anchorage Circle in Seminole. Detectives said Taylor Titus, 17, left his home about 9 p.m. without telling his caregivers, James Wolf, 55, and Nancy Wolf, 56, and returned home shortly before midnight. When Titus got home, Wolf was preparing to go to sleep and had turned off all the lights in the home. Wolf then heard a noise coming from the back of the home, grabbed his handgun and went to check his residence. Wolf noticed a subject near the backdoor and ordered him to freeze. The subject began to walk toward Wolf. Wolf then fired one shot, hitting the subject. When the subject stumbled toward Wolf, he realized it was Titus. Titus was transported to a local hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries.Sheriff announces zero-tolerance for DUIs James Harrison WolfWKMJ 102.1 FM taken off the airPINELLAS PARK Officers with the Pinellas Park Police Departments Community Redevelopment Area Policing unit and investigators from the Federal Communications Commission wrapped up an investigation Nov. 15 of a pirate radio station operating within the city limits of Pinellas Park. Investigators determined that Joseph Kervenson, 27, of Kenneth City was listed as the CEO of the pirate radio station using the call letters of WKMJ 102.1 FM. According to a report from Pinellas Park police, the radio station was broadcasting over the FM airways without licensing from the FCC a third degree felony in the state of Florida. During the investigation, officers seized the radio transmitter and antenna used for the illegal broadcast. The business located at 6251 Park Blvd. Suite 9-F in Pinellas Park was secured and the radio broadcast was terminated. Kervenson was charged with unauthorized transmissions to, or interference with, a public or commercial radio station licensed by the FCC. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $5,000.Man arrested for molesting childPinellas County detectives arrested a Sumter County man Nov. 12 for Sexual Battery on a Child Under 12 at a private residence at an undisclosed location in Pinellas County. Detectives began their investigation on Oct. 14, when a female disclosed that Charles Michael Willis II, 24, of Bushnell had molested her between the years of 2002 and 2003. The victim would have been age 6 and Willis age 13. The victim advised detectives that Willis molested Firefighters prevent high-rise fireCLEARWATER Clearwater Fire and Rescue firefighters responded to a call at a high-rise condo, 1200 Gulf Blvd., on Nov. 12, according to a fire report.

Last week, Hillsborough County Animal Services announced that several dogs at its shelter tested positive for respiratory coronavirus and pneumovirus. Dogs at the shelter were tested as part of a Cornell University research study. If you notice your dog has runny eyes, a runny nose, or is sneezing and/or coughing, you should immediately contact your veterinarian, said Barry Kellogg, VMD, in a press release. Kellogg is HSVMAs senior veterinary advisor. Management of canine infectious respiratory disease in dogs housed in close proximity to one another remains a challenge, and it is critical that veterinarians working in and with animal shelters are familiar with its various causes. CIRDC is commonly known as kennel cough. The pneumovirus and respiratory coronavirus are just two of the viruses that cause respiratory diseases. Any of these upper respiratory infections cause an illness similar to when a human gets the flu; however, these are not the same disease as the Canine Flu. The viruses are not usually deadly, but infected animals should be given veterinary care, including antibiotics for secondary infections. While respiratory coronavirus and pneumovirus are not contagious to humans or cats, Hillsborough County Animal Services the only shelter in the area has taken steps to confine the viruses. The shelter temporarily halted adoptions, and will only accept sick or injured dogs, dogs who have bitten someone and dogs deemed dangerous. There is no way to prevent outbreaks such as this, but animals vaccinated for the upper respiratory complex may fare better in such situations. Pet owners should make sure their animals are properly vaccinated.FranklinAt 4.5 months old, striking Franklin will delight your soul.

RCS helps many of the poor and homeless of Pinellas County by providing them with food and personal hygiene items. The second-graders working on a Pay it Forward project collected personal hygiene items and food to donate to RCS. A tour of the facility let students see first-hand what RCS does for the community, and opened the eyes of the students to the needs of others. During the tour students were surprised to see that the bins that held the hygiene items were completely empty. Thanks to the donations that the students had collected the bins were once again full of items at the conclusion of their tour. Teachers of St. Cecelia School had talked about the word altruism and the difference between selfish versus selfless, and how the students were selfless for taking a field trip to help others instead of going on a field trip that would be about them.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, November 21, 2013A year ago I made the mistake of subscribing to a nutrition advice publication called Eat right or die! They gave my name to other health and nutrition magazines. Now Im drowning in food-related advice and factoids. Here are some examples. Did you know that if you try to cook a rabbit in your microwave oven, the rabbit will really not appreciate it? You should first boil the rabbit in a large pot; the way Glenn Close did in the film Fatal Attraction. Next time your mother-in-law gives you a box of grapefruit or grapefruit juice, she may be trying to kill you. Thats because science has identified more than 85 common drugs that may interact poorly (i.e., explode) when brought in contact with grapefruit. Not actually explode. Just make you dizzy or cause gastrointestinal bleeding. If you dont eat right and put on too much weight, chances are your brain will turn into oatmeal faster than if you ate properly and stayed slim. Furthermore, if you have a low level of vitamin C and beta-carotene, you may be inviting Alzheimers disease into your life. So check with your doctor. Or at least have a beta-carotene discussion at your next bridge club or Elks meeting. Nutrition newsletters can be disillusioning, even though helpful. For the past 23 years my Aunt Rachel has been giving me 10 pounds of sea salt at Christmas. Its better for you than table salt, she said. And I believed her. So I spent the ensuing 12 months putting sea salt on everything I ate, including tapioca pudding. But Aunt Rachel was wrong. The experts now say that sea salt is not viable as a sodium-reduction measure. It contains almost as much sodium as table salt, and really doesnt taste that much better. For years, scientists and the food industry have been removing transfat and gluten from our diets. Where does all that unwanted stuff go, once its taken away? I have wondered that, and now I have an unconfirmed report: Nebraska. My sources tell me that two separate fields each 5 miles square, 40 miles west of Lincoln have been set aside for the gluten and transfat. Both substances will remain there for the next 20 years while the experts answer this question: What are we gonna do with this stuff? Have you noticed that during the past few years TV programs about food and cooking have increased almost as much as Spanishlanguage channels? Along with whiter teeth, clear skin and trashy sit-coms, Americans love food. One result of that is that more babies are being given the names of food items. Dont be surprised if you hear about infants named Aspic, Watercress, Finocchio, Ratatouille, Cumin and Horehound. Do you suffer from osteoarthritis? Are you easily confused by what you read? If so, forget about doing research on the various drugs and food supplements aimed at reducing arthritis pain. Youll end up not knowing whether to toss out or keep most of the contents of your bathroom shelf. A detailed report in Nutrition Action reported on studies of glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, fish oil, krill oil, Vitamin D and SAM-e all of which have been touted as painkillers for arthritis patients. The verdict on the studies: you might as well flip a coin to decide whether to buy these medicines. Pain reduction was either absent or minimal. Ive been popping glucosamine tablets for years, but now Im quitting. Alzheimers and peanut butter? Those were main items in a University of Florida study, in which subjects were asked to sniff a spoonful of peanut butter as it was held several inches from their noses. Of 94 patients tested, 18 had already been diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimers. All 18 were less able to smell the peanut butter with their left nostrils than their right nostrils. A degraded sense of smell is a recognized Alzheimers symptom. Because Alzheimers usually affects the left side of the brain first, researchers believe the sniffing test may help to better detect the onset of the affliction. But they warn the public that self-administered peanut butter tests be avoided, since odor sensitivity can be affected by many factors. In your nutrition reading, you are sure to find a warning about your favorite food or drink. The experts have a knack for finding something dangerous in almost every food or beverage known. But dont be discouraged. The flip side is that, each week, scientists discover that a previously-banned item has been given the okay. Even as I finish writing this column, I see on the Web that moderate consumption of beer may help ward off cancer. And several times a year researchers change their minds about coffee one month it will bring an early death, but a short time later we learn that caffeine may cure impetigo or conniption fits. So dont give up just keep reading, and eating.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.House Speaker John Boehner told reporters Wednesday that the GOP leadership has no intention of going to conference committee on the Senates comprehensive immigration bill passed in June. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy told Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles Director Angelica Salas last week that the House would not pass its immigration package this year. Not enough time. But in Washington, theres always time for the blame game. This week, The Hill ran a two-part autopsy on immigration reform and concluded: Both parties are responsible for the efforts demise. Boehner wouldnt commit. His rank-andfile didnt trust President Barack Obama to enforce a new law, given the presidents 2012 executive order to flout immigration law and halt the deportation of DREAM Act-eligible residents. The White House pressed House Democrats not to reach a deal before the Senate, even though the House is the linchpin. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., told The Hill: It is clear to me that there was no strategy on the White Houses part post-Senate victory. Because the Senate victory was the strategy. That statement confirms the rights longstanding suspicion that the left doesnt really want immigration reform, not when Democrats can use the issue to lather up anti-GOP anger among Latino voters. Obama did not deliver on his 2008 promise to push an immigration bill during his first year in office, even though Democrats controlled the White House, Senate and House during the first two years of his presidency. Only after Democrats lost the House in 2010 did that lame-duck body pass the DREAM Act to offer citizenship to children brought into the country illegally by their parents. Because supporters couldnt deliver the 60 votes needed in the Senate five Democrats voted no it tanked. Salas told me Tuesday that both parties hold equal responsibility for the measures failing. She insisted her group doesnt want to keep the issue alive to help one party bury the other. There is a way forward. The GOP caucus has been working on piecemeal bills to address immigration reform, including its own version of the DREAM Act, the Kids Act. The problem is, Salas noted, nothing is in writing yet. At least show your cards, she challenged. National Journal reported that Republicans are fighting over whether to allow DREAM kids to sponsor their undocumented parents for green cards. Understandably, Salas objects. Every citizen has that right, she said. If this Kids Act treats all citizens equally, her group would be wise to support it. Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year. Otherwise, their main contribution to the immigration debate will be passage of a measure to resume deporting DREAMers spared by Obamas pen. Is that the message they want to send to Latino voters? Id rather Americans hear the words of Kids Act supporter Eric Cantor. The House majority leader said in February, One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.Email Debra J.

Debra Saunders Jury duty proves interesting for newspaper editor John Deering is chief editorial cartoonist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the state's largest newspaper. Winner of the National Press Foundation's 1997 Berryman Award, Deering also gained top honors in the 1994 national John Fischetti Cartoon Competition and was the seven-time winner of the Arkansas Press Association's Best Editorial Cartoonist award. Born in 1956 in Little Rock, Deering has been drawing since his childhood fascination with science ction and dinosaurs. He and his wife, Kathy, have a daughter and two sons, and live in Little Rock. He still draws dinosaurs. About the cartoonistI have always felt its our civic responsibility to serve on a jury. But when a letter recently came in the mail from the Pinellas County Clerk of the Court, requesting my presence for jury duty, I had mixed emotions. On one hand, I looked forward to the opportunity to serve but on the flip side of the coin, like so many of us, I didnt have the time. After giving it some thought and discussing the matter with a colleague, I decided to postpone my day of duty to early November. The clerk agreed and I showed up on the day specified at the Pinellas County Justice Center on 49th Street. At 8 oclock sharp, about 125 of us filed into a large room where the waiting began. After we all filled out a brief questionnaire, the waiting continued. About a half-hour later we watched a pair of fairly good orientation videos, which outlined the history of the justice system in the United States and explained just why we were there that day. Then there was more waiting. Finally, about two hours into the process, a county employee informed us that there was a light docket that day and a good chance many of us would be excused early. I figured since Im a newspaper editor, I would probably receive that distinction. But no. About a half-hour later, a county employee read out a list of potential jurors who were excused. And, of course, I was not among them. OK, I thought, maybe today is the day I get selected. Time wore on before we were informed the remaining 50 or so of us needed to stay tuned. There might be a need for a jury panel involving some of us, they told us. And guess what, I got the call. So about 30 of us were escorted up to a fourth floor courtroom where jury selection began in the courtroom of Judge Timothy Peters. We were asked a number of questions, including would we be available if the case extended into a second day. I thought, sure, I can do that. But not everybody was on the same page. One woman, for example, got excused because she had two dogs at home that needed to have their medication by 6 p.m. Another said she wouldnt be available because her sons youth football team was playing in a big game over on the east coast of Florida and she would be in transit on the second day. Others had previous convictions, which basically eliminated them, and others had previous issues with being a victim of a crime. Others said they knew law enforcement members or had family members that were law enforcement officers. That pretty much eliminated them. After all of this, we all filed out of the courtroom, had lunch and came back to find out if we were selected. Juries in Florida have six members and an alternate. So seven of us were going to be selected. As the names were being called out, I thought again I might be excused. But no. When it came down to the sixth and final person, I got the call. A woman behind me was selected as the alternate. The jury of three men and three women was there to hear a felony case against a young Clearwater man charged with sale and possession of crack cocaine. The states case was based on the testimony of an undercover informant who said he purchased crack from the defendant in a Clearwater crack house about a year ago. The state reinforced the case with a video it claimed showed the transaction going down. On the night of the alleged deal, the informant was wired with an audio/video system that was invisible to those around him. Unfortunately, the Clearwater Police detective that set the informant up to wear it had no previous experience with the equipment and the camera shot haphazardly in the wrong direction. The audio worked OK but it was unclear who was speaking. So, in essence, the video/audio was inconclusive. We had to toss it out. Then there was the testimony of the informant and the police detective. The informant was doing this task only to keep himself out of jail from a previous drug conviction. He openly admitted he visited the crack house before the date of the alleged deal many times and continued to buy cocaine afterward, spending as much as $200 to $1,000 per week. His credibility was sketchy, at best. The police detectives testimony was good. But since he didnt actually see the deal happen (he was outside driving around in an unmarked car), there was no way of proving the defendant was the person who actually made the sale or was actually in possession of crack cocaine. There were at least seven people in the crack house that evening. So it could have been any number of those people who were in possession of crack and actually sold the drugs to the informant. After two hours of deliberation, we finally came to the conclusion that the defendant could not be found guilty on either charge. Was the defendant guilty? More than likely. But with the evidence the jury had to work with, a not guilty verdict was the only direction we could go. I walked out of the Justice Center that evening with mixed emotions about what had happened. But I took solace in the fact that the justice system did what it is supposed to do. As Judge Peters made clear to us on more than one occasion, we were to base our decision on the evidence. We did just that.Young family touched by show of support Editor: I wanted to take the time to say thank you to all of those who came out to show their respects and honor my brother. Not only at the public viewing and the service. As my family and I drove from the Indian Rocks church to Bay Pines we couldnt help but to notice your presence. My heart was deeply touched by all those who stood on the side of the rode waving the flags, saluting and sharing a piece of history with families and friends. Thank you, to all those who were waiting at intersections and in parking lots while the funeral procession went past. Thank you to all the businesses that have put signs out thanking and honoring Bill. My brother will be sorely missed not only locally and nationally but as well as in out familys hearts. As most of you know my brother and I came from humble beginnings together and I am proud of my brother and all that he has done for this country. The Tom Young family. Pinellas Park Bob McClure Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year.

DOH-Pinellas offers employers free assistance in developing tobacco cessation programs, whether its through the companys health insurance provider or the states free cessation services. Nearly 70 percent of smokers want to quit and getting help through their employers can increase their chance of success while simultaneously benefiting the business. Health care costs are one of the largest expenses facing Pinellas Countys businesses. On average, health care costs for employees who smoke are up to 34 percent higher compared to non-smokers. Every employee who smokes can cost employers an extra $2,056 a year in health care expenses. Tobacco use is also the leading cause of productivity loss at work. In fact, each smoker can cost a business an average of $4,056 every year in lost productivity including sick days, distraction at work and smoking breaks. Workers who smoke at least one pack a day experience 75 percent more productivity loss than non-smoking workers. Businesses who want to help their employees quit tobacco should also implement a tobacco free grounds policy at their workplace, said Tobacco Free Florida Bureau Chief Shannon Hughes. These policies are one of the most effective ways to help employees quit and it creates a healthier environment for all. Tobacco-free grounds policies nearly double the chance that employees will quit. For those that do not quit, the policy will reduce the number of cigarettes smoked by employees during the week. Tobacco-free grounds policies are easy to enforce. More than 80 percent of Floridians do not smoke and research has shown compliance rates for tobacco free grounds policies to be more than 96 percent. For more information, call Healthy Pinellas coordinator Rosie Bailey at 588-4040, ext. 3170 or email Rosie.Bailey@flhealth.gov. The Departments Tobacco Free Florida campaign is a statewide cessation and prevention campaign funded by Floridas tobacco settlement fund. Tobacco users interested in quitting are encouraged to use one of the states three ways to quit. To learn about Tobacco Free Florida and the states free quit resources, visit www.tobaccofreeflorida.com or follow the campaign at www.facebook.com/Tobacco FreeFlorida or www.twitter.com/tobaccofreefla. Volunteers campaign for ObamacareLARGO Members of Organizing for Action in Pinellas County and the National Organization for Women in West Pinellas joined ranks to underline the benefits offered by Obamacare on 118th Avenue North, in front of Beckwith Electric Company, in Largo Nov. 13. The action event was aimed at helping start family conversations about the facts of the Affordable Care Act. Women traditionally take lead roles in family health matters and taking advantage of the laws provisions is expected to be part of their efforts as uninsured Americans sign up for coverage in the next several months. Another action event, an information session at the Dunedin Public Library, attracted two dozen people later in the day. Organizing for Action is a nonprofit grassroots organization not affiliated with any political party or candidate. In the face of opposing campaigns, Organizing for Action volunteers are working to make progress one conversation at a time.

Dr. Parveen Vahora, a board-certified OB/GYN, performed a robotic laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy. Dr. Keith Gregory Chisholm, a board-certified general surgeon, performed a robotic laparoscopic single site cholecystectomy. The da Vinci Surgical System robot allows surgeons the opportunity to perform cervix-sparing hysterectomies and single-incision gallbladder surgeries, like those performed today which would have been impossible just a short time ago. The talent of our surgeons is supported by the range of motion and 3-D vision capabilities provided by the da Vinci robot, said Bruce Bergherm, president and CEO of Florida Hospital North Pinellas. Their passion and drive to provide the most advanced approaches to surgery to our patients is truly enhanced by this incredible technology. With minimally invasive procedures like a single-site/incision gallbladder surgery, patients can expect shorter recovery times, less pain and dramatically lessened scarring. For example, with a single-site robotic laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the gallbladder is removed via an incision in the belly-button, rather than using a larger incision in the abdomen with traditional surgery, or multiple points of entry from a traditional laparoscopic procedure.Morton Plant to offer CarFit CLEARWATER Morton Plant Mease Memory Disorders Clinic and the Aging Well Center are teaming up to offer CarFit, a free, new safety program designed to help older adults learn how the fit of their vehicle affects their driving and how to use their vehicles safety features. The CarFit event will take place Friday, Dec. 13, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Aging Well Center at The Long Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road. Older drivers are considered safer drivers because they are more likely to wear seatbelts and less apt to speed. However, they are more likely to be seriously injured or killed from a car accident due to their bodies fragility and improper fit in their cars, CarFit program organizers say. As people get older, changes happen in vision, strength, range of motion, weight and height that can cause less comfort making it harder to have control behind the wheel, said Celisa Bonner in a press release. Bonner is clinic coordinator at Madonna Ptak Center for Alzheimers and Memory Loss at Morton Plant Mease. The CarFit program is a good opportunity for a driver to find their safest fit with their car and to increase the drivers safety on the road as well as the safety of others. Drivers who attend the free community event will have a 12-point checklist done in about 20 minutes that includes checking if the driver: is sitting correctly and positioned at least 10 inches from the steering wheel; can reach the pedals easily with ones foot instead of toes causing slower reaction time; and has the flexibility to adjust mirrors and minimize blind spots. Trained volunteers will recommend car and driver adjustments after the inspection. Drivers interested in having a CarFit check are asked to preregister. Call 724-3070. CarFit is an educational and safety program created by the American Society on Aging, and developed in collaboration with American Automobile Association, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association.Morton Plant seeks volunteersMorton Plant Mease Health Care provides a variety of volunteer opportunities at hospitals and facilities throughout Pinellas and Pasco counties.

Health 15A Leader, November 21, 2013 11350 66th St. N., Largo 727-538-7771Theres A Comfort Keeper Close ByCovering All Of Pinellas CountyWe provide non-medical in-home care such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, and companionship to help people maintain quality, independent lives in the comfort of their own homes. 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.

Professional 020713 020713 Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder: The unfocused mindToday I jumped up from my chair, headed to the other room to get something, and half way there forgot what I was getting. It wasnt the first time that happened, but Ive learned that if I go back to where I started from, retracing my steps, I tend to remember. Thankfully, this doesnt happen very often because when it does, I lose a little confidence in my memory. The truth is, this happens to most people every now and then and its no big deal. All of our brains have a chemical in them called Dopamine, which, among other things, helps to regulate attention, cognition, motivation, mood, learning and memory. The catch is that we dont all have the same amount. Some of our Dopamine tanks are full at all times while others are only half or onequarter full. That makes a big difference in the way we think and behave. Imagine your Dopamine tank is only half full or one-quarter full and when you go into the other room to get something, you often forget what it is. And as hard as you try, you cant remember, so you lose confidence in yourself, especially about your memory and then you do something else. Imagine while youre doing that something else, you get hungry and have lunch. After lunch, you dont remember what you were doing prior to that, but the television is on and you get interested in a show. Two hours later, you glance at your watch and are surprised to see how long you had been in the TV zone. You look at your dirty dishes with every intention of washing them but something outside the window catches your eye and it makes you think of getting the mail. As you walk outside to get the mail, you look over to the side yard and see your wheelbarrow still full of the junk you meant to put in the dumpster. You tell yourself you better tend to that junk now before you forget it because it looks unsightly on the lawn, so you head over there to take care of it. Im sure you get the idea by now that this is an example of the thinking process of a brain with less than a full tank of Dopamine. This is only one possible scenario of many. Do you know someone who behaves this way? Do you behave this way? Its extremely uncomfortable and you would be surprised how many people dont have a clue that there may be help available. Many people have lived this way their entire lives, never having been diagnosed and always believing that this is just the way they are and theres nothing they can do about it. This is the C or D student, the one who doesnt understand the work and no matter how much help they get, it just doesnt seem to stick. This is the child or adult who has to work two or three times harder than the average person in order to get the same results. Unfortunately, this is also the kid or adult who is often belittled or made fun of due to their forgetfulness or inability to concentrate. Its also the person who can be moody sometimes or even seem defiant. Living with undiagnosed ADHD is harder than you may think. Its confusing, exhausting and even more, depressing. ADHD and depression go hand in hand. When ADHD is treated, very often depression improves. ADHD is lifelong, not something that will just get better with time, so it robs people of their optimism that it can get better. The good news is that ADHD can be managed very well and many symptoms do greatly improve. If you suspect you have ADHD, seek a good treatment program. While ADHD may have fueled your depression, the good news is that addressing the ADHD has the potential to really turn things around, in more ways than one. Remember that as your ADHD is treated, your life will improve and there are some good reasons for optimism about the future something that depression often robs us of. Take action, even if you arent motivated. Depression robs us of motivation and interest. Tell yourself that this will help you to feel better or at least take a chance that it might. Symptoms are generally treated with medicine, but its not just about taking a pill. There is much to learn about practical things like getting organized, and on other emotional issues that often come with ADHD. See my article next time on practical problem solving, learning organizational skills, setting goals, planning and time management.Dina Meitner, LCSW,a staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013 is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

PETERSBURG More than 4,000 Pinellas County residents joined together at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk on Oct. 19.

The race options include the 10K Turkey Trot, the 5K Wingding, the 5K Fun Run, the 1-mile Gobbler, and the Clearwater Challenge, which is the 5K, 1mile and 10K. The races all are on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, and all begin at Keene Road just south of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard except for the 5K Fun Run, and they end in Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School. The Wingding begins at 7 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 5K Fun Run begins at 7:30 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 1-mile Gobbler begins at 8:30 a.m. and costs $14 in advance or $15 on race day. The 10K Turkey Trot starts at 8:45 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day, and the Clearwater Challenge begins at 7 a.m. and costs $35 in advance or $40 on race day. Competitors can register online at www.tampabay.com/ turkeytrot, or at Fit 2 Run in either St. Petersburg or Tampa. The cost of registration includes the race, a T-shirt and goodies at the end of the race, said Skip Rogers, race director. People can register early through Friday, Nov. 22, at 3 p.m. For a full list of on-site registration locations, see the website. Late registration is available at limited locations through Monday, Nov. 25, at 3 p.m. Early T-shirt pickup and lastchance registration is available at the following times and locations: Monday, Nov. 25 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Bright House Networks, Westfield Countryside Mall on the second floor mall entrance near JC Penney, 27001 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or their T-shirt with race number and T-shirt tag. Tuesday, Nov. 26 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Fit 2 Run, 256 Second St. N., St. Petersburg. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or T-shirt with race number and T-shirt tag. The Turkey Trot Kickoff Party is set for Wednesday, Nov. 27, 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School, 540 S. Hercules Ave. Money needs to be the exact amount in cash or check format. The public is invited to enjoy a fun, free evening that includes live music, games, snacks, and the chance to buy official Turkey Trot merchandise in preparation for race day. Racers also will be able to pick up their T-shirts and race numbers. Its a community event, Rogers said. Wednesday night is like Homecoming. We provide free food and drinks, and people come out and sign up for Turkey Trot. We get college kids who come home for the holidays and they meet either at Turkey Trot or the day before. They can meet up with friends who they wouldnt otherwise have time to see. The race began in 1978 at Howard Park in Tarpon Springs and was on a Saturday and run by the YMCA. The director was from Buffalo, N.Y. He said, We do it on Thanksgiving morning, Rogers said. We kind of looked at him like he was nuts. But we moved it to Thanksgiving morning and we had 999 people who were at the race. And its naturally grown from that. Last year we had a record of 17,678 who ran it. The Clearwater Challenge is the newest addition to the race, which was added last year, Rogers said. A number of competitors already were doing it and nicknamed it the Turk-Can-Do, he said, and they asked if it could be made official. I interviewed a lot of people last year who were doing the challenge, and their interpretation was that it was a challenge, Rogers said. Those runners could easily do any one of the races, but doing all three is an extra challenge, especially since there is about a half mile from the finish line back to the start of the course and having to make it back there in time for the next race to begin. So in all, the runners are completing about 11.3 miles. The proceeds from the race benefit local charities, including the West Florida Y Runners Club Scholarship programs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Pinellas County and the Childrens Heart Foundation. Last year, $48,000 was given out in 24 $2,000 scholarships, and about another $100,000 was given to local charities, Rogers said. People are encouraged to also bring canned goods and nonperishable food items on race day to donate to the RCS Food Bank. People are encouraged to arrive at least an hour before the race because parking gets tight. Spectators and racers should not stand or walk on neighbors yards and instead should use the sidewalks. Competitors should line up according to speed, with the fastest runners at the front, the slowest and walkers in the back. Noncompetitive wheelchair participants should also start at the back of the crowd, and animals, bicycles, wagons, roller blades and skates are not allowed on the course. There will be one water station in the Wingding and three water stations in the Turkey Trot course. At the end, there will be free refreshments for all registered participants. Medical personnel at a medical tent also will be at the finish line. The first three male and female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot races in the Open, Master and Grand Master levels will receive trophies. The Master level is for people age 40 and older, and the Grand Master level is for people ages 50 and older. In the Gobbler race, the first-place male and female winners will receive trophies. Additionally, the first 125 male and 125 female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot will receive top finisher awards. People must be present to collect their awards, as they will not be mailed. The city of Clearwater is one of the major sponsors, and theyre very supportive of it and very happy, Rogers said. As far as demographics, it brings anywhere from 6-month-old kids to 90-yearolds doing it. Its probably one of the biggest events in Clearwater. At last count, Rogers said there are registered runners from everywhere, including Alaska, Washington, D.C., California, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Canada.

Call 587-6793 or visit largoarts.com. McGuinn is best known for being the lead singer and lead guitarist of The Byrds, an American rock band that flourished from 1964 through 1973. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with The Byrds. The band boasted a signature sound featuring harmony singing mixed with McGuinns innovated jangly 12-string Rickenbacker guitar. Among the bands most enduring songs are their cover versions of Bob Dylans Mr. Tambourine Man and Pete Seegers Turn! Turn! Turn! along with the self-penned originals, Eight Miles High, Ill Feel a Whole Lot Better, So You Want to Be a Rock n Roll Star, Ballad of Easy Rider and Chestnut Mare. According to McGuinns bio, provided by Skyline Music, the innovative guitarist was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scene when he co-founded The Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Prior to forming the Byrds, McGuinn toured and performed folk music with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player. He was also the musical director and guitarist on Judy Collins #3. McGuinn, a Chicago native, studied at the Old Town School of Folk Music and was active on Chicagos folk scene, where he was strongly influenced as a teenager by Bob Gibson. Within a few weeks of finishing high school, McGuinn was working with the Limeliters in California, playing guitar and banjo on their album Tonight: In Person. McGuinn is also on the Chad Mitchell Trios albums Mighty Day on Campus and The Chad Mitchell Trio at the Bitter End. After touring with singer Bobby Darin, McGuinn moved to New York at Darins request to work for his publishing company, TM Music, in the fabled Brill Building as a songwriter. He and Frank Gari co wrote the song Beach Ball and performed it with Darin, as the City Surfers in July 1963. After hearing the Beatles for the first time at the Brill Building, McGuinn began playing folk songs to a rock beat in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village.

Mandolin player Chris Hillman was asked to join the group and to learn how to play the bass guitar. During a Thanksgiving dinner the band settled on the name Byrds, and success was just around the corner. Columbia Records signed the Byrds in January 1965 and they recorded their first No. 1 hit, Mr. Tambourine Man. In 1968 McGuinn and Hillman hired Gram Parsons and headed for Nashville where they recorded the now critically acclaimed Sweetheart of the Rodeo. McGuinn disbanded the Byrds in 1973 to pursue his dream of a solo career. He made five solo albums on Columbia Records. McGuinn rejoined Gene Clark and Chris Hillman in 1978 on Capitol Records for three albums. In 1981 McGuinn decided it was time to return to his folk roots and began touring solo acoustic. Arista records released Back From Rio in 1991, a rock album that included his friends, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello, Chris Hillman, David Crosby, Michael Penn and John Jorgensen. After touring extensively to support the album he returned to his roots folk music. In November 1995, McGuinn began recording and uploading to the Internet a series of traditional folk songs to his website. The recordings are available for free download at the FOLK DEN section of McGuinns official website mcguinn.com. The autobiographical one-man show, Live from Mars, was released on Hollywood Records in November of 1996. The album includes two studio tracks, May The Road Rise To Meet You, and Fireworks, recorded in Minneapolis with members of the Jayhawks. McGuinns next CD was recorded on Appleseed Recordings, titled Treasures From The Folk Den. The CD offered favorite songs from the Folk Den with the added bonus of duets with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Odetta, Jean Ritchie, Josh White Jr. and Frank and Mary Hamilton. It was nominated for a Grammy in 2002 in the category of Best Traditional Folk Album. On April 1, 2004 McGuinn released a CD, which he called Limited Edition because he sold it only via the Internet and at his live performances. Limited Edition is an eclectic blend of rock and roll, traditional folk music, new compositions and hip-hop. In 2011, McGuinn released CCD. According to the album notes, CCD reflects McGuinns love of sea shanties. His intricate finger work on various stringed instruments and the haunting quality of his Irish heritage vocal style will take the listener back to the days when mighty sailing ships explored the seas from the Kamchatka Bay to the Greenland whaling fisheries. The CD is wrapped in an eight-panel package that compliments the music. Along with photos of the ocean and three sailing ships, each song is briefly explained, enabling listeners to enjoy the intricate and historical lyrics as their feet tap to the rhyme of the waves. McGuinn was reportedly honored to be able to do a small part in preserving these songs of the sea on this CD. Following the release of CCD, McGuinn was asked what he thought his legacy would be. His response was not what one might expect The Byrds. Instead, McGuinn said he hoped to be remembered for using the modern age of technology to help keep the songs of old from vanishing in the wind.Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project to present Longtime CompanionST. PETERSBURG As a prelude to Worlds Aids Day, the Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project will present a staged play reading of Craig Lucas screenplay Longtime Companion on Monday, Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m., at American Stage Theatre, 163 Third St. N. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Admission is pay-whatyou-will at the door. Advance purchase tickets are available for $15 each. A cash bar will be available. For information, call 823-7529 or www.americanstage.org. The production stars Katherine Michelle Tanner, Chris Crawford, Steve Garland, Brian Shea, Vincent Stalba, Drew DeCaro, Larry Alexander, Joey Panek, Jim Sorenson, Chris Jackson, Jonelle Marie Meyer and Daniel Harris. Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder, the audience watches the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of the protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry the audience from the it-couldnt-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on everyones lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as Longtime Companions of the deceased. By special permission from Craig Lucas, this one-night-only performance will benefit People with AIDS programs at Metropolitan Charities of Pinellas. The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness, provide assistance, and perpetuate a life of dignity for those affected and infected by HIV and AIDS. To learn more about The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project, call Garry Allan Breul at 941-758-6399 or garallan@msn.com. LCC, from page 1B Discover Bermuda known as the jewel of the AtlanticWhat has pink sand and is only 650 miles from the USA? If you said Bermuda, you are correct. This island known as the jewel of the Atlantic is actually 181 islands and rocks. Due east of South Carolina, and with 75 miles of coastline, this 21-square-miles of paradise has much for you to explore. Discovered by Juan de Bermdez in 1505, this uninhabited island became a British colony by accident. In 1609 the Sea Venture bound for Jamestown was shipwrecked in a storm off the eastern coast. Sir George Somers and his entire crew miraculously survived, making the shipwreck the first colony on the island. In 1612 the Virginia Company surrendered the island to the Crown, making it Britains oldest colony. Have no doubts; this is a British colony. The influence is everywhere. Come and see why some folks tell you that Bermuda is more British than Britain is. Bermuda shorts are everyday wear. From policemen directing traffic, to businessmen dressed in business jackets and shorts, you soon are accustomed to seeing them everywhere. St. Georges was the first capital of the island before it was moved to Hamilton in 1815. This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts a protected harbor. Enjoy a taste of history with centuries old lanes, alleyways and unique cottages. Nearby Tobacco Bay is popular for snorkeling and is a destination for many visitors. It is easily reached by bus or from the ferry terminal. The Crystal and Fantasy Caves are a surprise and include a 55-foot deep lake in one of the chambers. Hamilton was purpose-built to be central to most islanders. Thriving from day one it is Bermudas hub of international and local business and is an offshore financial center. It is packed with historic buildings, churches, shops, museums, galleries, alleys, parks and gardens; all constructed on a beautiful natural harbor. Gibbs Hill Lighthouse was built in 1844 and is the oldest cast iron lighthouse in the world. The Navy Dockyards are a short ferry or bus ride from Hamilton and offers shopping, museums, dining and a historical perspective of the island. Built by the British Navy in 1809, it played a role in the war of 1812. During World War II the USA also had a navy base here and both bases were closed in 1995. For golfers there are nine courses, offering stunning views and challenges. The most popular are Belmont Hills Golf & Country Club, Fairmont Southampton Golf Club and Port Royal Golf Course; one of the greatest public courses in the world. Yes, the sand is pink. A combination of crushed coral, calcium carbonate and shells are what create the color. The most famous beaches are Horseshoe Bay and Elbow Beach although there are several more. The offshore waters are a paradise for snorkeling and diving. You can visit Bermuda either by air or by cruise ship. Flights from Florida take six hours. Accommodation and food tend to be on the pricier side, so visiting by cruise ship makes a lot of sense. You cannot rent a car but you can rent a scooter. Beware though, as driving on the left side of the road with traffic circles can be confusing. The public transit system is incredibly reliable. Come visit any month of the year, although May through October is popular. The warmest time is July and August (86 degrees) and the coolest is January and February (58 degrees)Scene from the Road is contributed by Enrico (Rick) Saltarelli the owner of Salty Breeze Cruise Planners.

New Century presents Don Giovanni TARPON SPRINGS New Century Opera will present Mozarts Don Giovanni Friday through Sunday, Dec. 6-8, at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, 324 Pine St. Performances will be Friday, 7 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $24 and $20 for students and members. Call 942-5605 or visit TarponArts.org. The opera is sung in English. Director Constantine Grame brings the New Century Opera production to the stage. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Don Giovanni explores the Spanish legend of Don Juan, the worlds most notorious womanizer. Don Giovanni is the second of the three great operas Mozart wrote in collaboration with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte. The opera, the most famous telling of Don Juan, is host to some of Mozarts most genius melodies: the famous duet L ci darem la mano and Don Giovannis heart-melting serenade, Deh vieni alla finestra. The cast features Christopher Holloway as Don Giovanni, Chris Romeo as Don Ottavio, Kevin Nickorick as Leporello, John Short as The Commandant and Masetto, Linda L. Hines as Donna Anna, Rachael Marino as Donna Elvira and Megan Schmidt as Zerlina.

How I Live Now takes a tale of teenage romance and plants in the middle of World War III. How I Live Now blends themes of love, loss and familial accountability with a bleak dystopian near-future scenario. Daisy, a neurotic American teenager, is sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside by a father who doesnt seem to want to deal with her. She is initially portrayed as highly unlikable: She is bratty, self-obsessed and impolite. Her attitude toward her cousins Piper, Isaac and Eddie ranges from indifferent to belligerent. Gradually, however, she begins to let down her defenses. She discovers her deceased mother spent time at the home and that she even slept in the same room where Daisy is staying. More importantly, she finds a kindred spirit in her cousin Eddie. The two fall in love. That aspect of the story may be off-putting to some. Love stories between first cousins are controversial. In production notes provided by Magnolia Pictures, Saoirse Ronan makes the case that the relationship is more compelling. I think its stronger and almost more romantic that they are cousins, Ronan says. It makes their connection stronger. She tries to go against it because she knows it defies convention but its a lot more interesting than, Daisy goes to summer camp and meets this dude. Everything is against them but the fact that he understands her better than she does and figures her out straight away gives her such an attraction to him. Even as the romance blossoms in How I Live Now, the couples idyllic summer days are punctuated with increasingly alarming news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. The mood changes drastically when an unnamed enemy detonates a nuclear device in London, killing thousands and spreading fallout across the countryside. England is dragged into the conflict and martial law ensues. The family is forcibly separated by the British military, with the boys, Eddie and Isaac, conscripted into the army and the girls, Daisy and Piper, recruited as farm laborers. The remainder of the film depicts how Daisy takes responsibility for her 10-year-old cousin Piper and struggles to survive and find a way back to the house in the English countryside where she hopes to find Eddie. How I Live Now brings to mind some of the more notable World War III movies of the 1980s, including World War III, Testament, The Day After, Threads and the animated When the Wind Blows. Like these movies, How I Live Now delivers numerous sequences highlighting the brutality of war with startling realism. Most striking is a scene in which Daisy picks through a pile of corpses to see if either of her cousins is among the dead. Unlike its predecessors, How I Live Now shrewdly keeps the identities of its combatants a mystery. In the 1980s, the backstory of such films generally pitted the United States against the Soviet Union. Since the end of the Cold War, the likelihood of that showdown has greatly diminished and the threat of a global conflict has shifted to other potential adversaries. Because How I Live Now is seen through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, it is fitting that the political elements are downplayed in the film. Ronan gives a solid performance as Daisy. She has screen chemistry with her costar, George MacKay, but it is her rapport with Daisys young cousin Piper that is truly transfixing. For Eddie, MacKay employs the strong-and-silent template, serving up an appealingly provincial persona. Harley Bird plays Piper with stunning depth and range. Tom Holland is equally gifted as Isaac, who seems the only welladjusted member of the family from the onset. The film is based on Meg Rosoffs novel of the same name, first published in 2004. It earned a number of prestigious literary awards, including the Guardian Childrens Fiction Prize. The book is written entirely in the voice of its heroine. The filmmakers, including director Kevin Macdonald, manage to replicate Daisys internal monologue in a series of well-placed scenes. A tale of endurance and survival, How I Live Now is oddly mesmerizing. Featuring exceptional performances from its young cast, led by Ronan, and bolstered by striking cinematography and a vivid sense of dystopian anxiety, Macdonalds adaptation of Rosoffs novel is a modern coming-of-age story with emotional impact.

Pinellas rakes in record tourismTax collections soar as more visitors than ever visited in the third quarter By SUZETTE PORTERState and local officials are celebrating a banner year for tourism. More people visited Florida during the third quarter of 2013 than ever before, according to preliminary estimates released Nov. 15 by Visit Florida, the states tourism marketing corporation. About 22.9 million visitors came to Florida from July to September, an increase of 1.7 percent over the same time last year. Because every 85 visitors to our state supports one Florida job; a growing tourism industry equates to more jobs for Florida families and a stronger economy, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a press release. Estimates show that 72.6 million visitors made Florida their destination through the first three quarters of 2013 up 3.4 percent over last year. Visitor spending from January through August statewide was $51.8 billion, a year-over-year increase of 5.8 percent. Direct travel-related employment grew by 2.8 percent, providing an additional 29,700 jobs. So far this year, were up nearly 2.5 million visitors who increased their spending by almost $3 billion, led by a double digit increase in international visitors, said Tammy Gustafson, chair of Visit Floridas board of directors. This continued momentum is a testament to the strength of Visit Floridas marketing efforts, the power of the Sunshine State brand and the dedication of the nearly 1.1 million Floridians who work in the states tourism industry. According to Visit Florida, 19.5 million domestic visitors came to Florida during the third quarter of 2013 a 0.5 percent increase over 2012.

I have been designing and creating since I was a little child, Svyatogor said. I remember crafting dolls from hay and plants and then hand-sewing dresses for them. Svyatogor was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. Her affinity for creativity now apparent in her evening gowns, masquerade costumes, gothic garb, corsetry and even fetish wear started with her family. Both of her parents and her grandmother were artistic people. I inherited a functional toy sewing machine that my mom used to play with when she was a child and started using it for my fashion projects. Then I learned how to knit and crochet from my grandmother, she explained. I was making all sorts of wearable things for myself and my family. Even my macram skills I applied to fashion, making and wearing dresses out of ropes, especially during my hippie years. Svyatogor has lived in Largo for most of the 15 years shes been in the United States. Yet the fact that she hails from the land of caviar and Catherine the Great is apparent in some of Svyatogors designs. Since shePhoto by ANNA KOTLOVA PHOTOGRAPHY Photo by BRETT BRANNINGAbove, fashion designer Ioulia Svyatogor of Largo, shown here modeling one of her own creations, says she likes melding vastly different styles. At left, Tatiana Kuzmina models one of Ioulia Svyatogors designs, made largely out of zippers and featured in the St. Petersburg show, Closet Artists: Art to Wear.

Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, the countys destination marketing organization, uses sun and fun to entice visitors to head to Pinellas during the winter months. Photo by WAYNE CATHELA sinkhole formed in the backyard of this home on Robmar Road. By TOM GERMONDDUNEDIN A sinkhole that caused the loss of two homes in a subdivision off Pinehurst Road continued to expand Nov. 14, but nobody was hurt. The sinkhole, which was 60 feet wide by 40 to 50 feet deep by the morning of Nov. 14, formed off Robmar Road, leading to the evacuation of seven homes, four on Robmar Road and three on Mary Jane Lane. Its increasing as we speak, said Dunedin Fire Chief Jeff Parks, who was at the scene along with firefighters, Pinellas Sheriffs Office personnel and other officials. The fire department received a call at 5:40 a.m. Nov. 14. At the one home at 1112 Robmar, the daughter heard a noise that sounded like somebody breaking in the back. The father went out there. Thats when he found the hole. He called us and the sheriffs department and we evacuated the buildings when we got here, Parks said. Between 10 and 11 a.m., the numerous news reporters on the scene heard the sound of what appeared to be glass or tile shattering. The hole was expanding somewhat to the north of the homes on Robmar Road and further to the west, Parks said. The back roof on the back corner of the second structure within an hour will be in the hole, he said Nov. 14. However, he said no other residents were expected to be evacuated. Emergency personnel had put up barricades, and work crews brought in a frontend loader to remove a boat that was in danger of falling into the sinkhole. Demolition crews removed the two severely damaged homes Nov. 15. Information on sink hole activity is available at 737 Louden Ave. Call City Engineering at 298-3178 or email: tburke @dunedinfl.net with any concerns/questions. A neighbor expressed concern about more sinkholes forming along her street.Largo commission considers possible noise ordinance By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO After debating the feasibility of defending a local noise ordinance in court, Largo commissioners decided to wait until legislators clarified a state statute that was declared unconstitutional. Commissioners were hoping to give Largo police officers another tool to target drivers disturbing others with loud music. In particular, Commissioner Curtis Holmes said he had been waiting years for the chance to address the issue. However, City Attorney Alan Zimmet advised caution, warning that the commissioners should not be surprised if the city got caught in a lengthy trial defending the ordinance. Its expensive to defend those; they are frequently appealed, he said. Commissioner Michael Smith asked Police Chief Jeff Undestad how frequently officers were called to address noise from vehicles. Undestad said it depended on the season, which would dictate if more windows were rolled down, but it did happen all over the city. Its not, I would say, one of the hugest problems that were facing right now, he said. Undestad conceded that the standing state statute was tough to enforce, but said a local ordinance was more time consuming for officers, just in the extra paperwork required to cite a violator. The police department does have a vehicle noise complaint form that residents can use to report disturbances. The traffic division tracks the complaints by license plates and sends a letter to offenders, warning them of the complaints. The problem usually resolves itself, because folks dont want to be a nuisance to their neighbors, said Sgt. George Edmiston of the traffic division.

4A Largo Leader, November 21, 2013studied fashion and design in her native Moscow and graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Tampa, its natural that the Old and New Worlds collide in her fashions. I like integrating different cultures for example, Victorian and futuristic cyber, or traditional classic with underground alternative. It makes for a unique and fun mixture, she said. Svyatogors avant-garde apparel includes everything from spiked corsets to dragon-patterned jackets in her arsenal. Her innovative wearable art has turned heads at shows and exhibitions such as Busch Gardens House of Vayne Fashion Show, featured in the parks 2009 Howl-O-Scream event. For a 2011 show Closet Artists: Art to Wear in St. Petersburg, she created several one-of-a-kind pieces including a dress made almost entirely out of red zippers. As head designer at Designs to Shine, a Pinellas Park-based business which sells distinctive ballroom gowns and dancewear, Svyatogor secured a spot on a team, which created attire for national TV, shows Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance? It is always exciting to see your creations on TV, but I feel the most satisfaction and fulfillment when I see people become instantly inspired and even empowered to dance and perform better while wearing my creations, she said. My goal is to create gowns in a way that when you put them on, you cant help but to want to start dancing and smiling. Svyatogor also is quite adept at making leather crafts, elaborate masks, elegant jewelry and stained glass art objects, which are also functional. I make fused glass air plant or orchid holders that you hang in the garden, and the stained glass looks so beautiful sparkling in the sun and moonlight, she said. It has also proven to be very good for the plants as they have all blossomed ever since I placed them in these glass holders. They provide just the right support, air circulation and moisture access for the plants to feel happy in them. Plus, they look pretty. Svyatogor is the owner of the Purring Angels Cattery, a homebased labor of love where she specializes in raising tiny teacup and toy-sized cats. One of the breeds, the lambkin, almost no one else in the country has, she said. They are just starting to become known in big part thanks to my cattery, Svyatogor said. Animal Planet even filmed part of an episode of Cats 101 on the Lambkin breed in her home. Kid inventors, designers awarded in recycling contestsLARGO The city of Largo announced the winners of its fifth annual Recycled Innovations Contest on the CBS mid-day television program, Studio 10, in celebration of America Recycles Day Nov. 15. Local junk geniuses were challenged to construct useful items consisting of at least 75 percent otherwise discarded material. Largo Recycles Facebook friends voted for their favorites by liking pictures of the inventions. The winners, in their respective age category, are as follows: Tiny Inventor : Nicolette Handza made an office supply organizer out of a tissue box, paper towel roll and a plastic container. Junior Innovator : Ian Millers bird feeder made branches, a milk carton and old shoelaces was declared the winner, and Grace Williams Halloween recycled T-shirt quilt was named the runner up. Tween Innovator: Carson Vescovi made a fishing cart with bait bucket out of PVC pipe, a rolling crate, water bottles, a plastic jug and zip ties. Ingenious Innovator : Meaghan Ryan made a purse out of magazines. Carsons invention received the most likes during the Nov. 1-12 voting period. The junior and tween age categories had the fiercest competition. Many of the contestants, and three of the winners, were from Amy Pipers classes at Country Day School. This contest is such a valuable lesson to teach kids and adults about being responsible for their waste, Largo recycling coordinator Marissa Segunda stated. To see all of the entries, visit www.facebook.com/ LargoRecycles. The citys recycling division announced the results of their Largo Recycles More billboard contest last month. Almost 200 students, grades kindergarten through fifth grade, entered the contest, creating a billboard design their passion for recycling and Largos new recycling program. The winners were Jiliene Bronto, 10, of Pinellas Primary Academy and Tiffany Zhou, 10, of Ridgecrest Elementary. The eight-week billboard campaign will start in January and help promote Largos new expanded recycling program. Starting in February of 2014, recycling will be collected in a large wheeled cart instead of a recycling bin to make it easier for families to recycle. The city of Largo also will be adding more materials to its collection, including plastics numbered 1 through 7, paper cartons and colored glass. For more information about Largos recycling efforts, visit LargoRecycles.com.The city also announced the winners of the Largo Recycles More billboard contest. The winning designs belong to Tiffany Zhou, shown above, and Jiliene Bronto, shown below.

Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin welcomed more visitors than any other state park in Florida for the seventh year in a row with more than 1 million visitors and more than $46.3 million in direct economic impact. Record visitor numbers equate to record spending, said Will Seccombe, president and CEO of Visit Florida. With taxable sales up, occupancy rates up, rental car collections up, bed taxes up and average daily room rates up, Floridas tourism industry has never been stronger.Pinellas enjoys record-setting yearPinellas County officials also are celebrating a new record. Bed tax collections topped $31 million during fiscal year 2013 the highest in the countys history. The Pinellas County Tax Collectors Office reported Nov. 5 that over a three-year period, 2011 to 2013, bed tax collections have increased, 7.7 percent in 2011, 12.3 percent in 2012 and another 8 percent in 2013. According to D.T. Minich, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater executive director, reaching the $30 million level is a significant milestone. Collecting $30,000 in bed tax allows Pinellas to meet the states criteria of a high impact tourism county. Local officials could add an additional penny to its bed tax, an increase from five cents to six cents. Bed tax collections pay for tourism marketing, beach restoration, bonds on area sports stadiums and other tourism-related initiatives under the direction of the countys Convention and Visitors Bureau. Fifty-three percent of the tax goes to marketing and operations, 20 percent to debt service, 16 percent to reserves, 9 percent to beach nourishment and 2 percent pays for the Tax Collectors services. Minich attributes marketing efforts by Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, the countys destination marketing organization, for the record year. This is a result of aggressive marketing and very targeted messaging, Minich said. A lot has changed during the past several years, including our marketing approach. Were not relying on print as much, which gives us the ability to better target online within our feeder markets. Visit St. Pete/Clearwater revealed its marketing plan for 2014 on Nov. 13. The plan includes a first-of-its-kind nationwide marketing partnership with Floridas Natural, workplace elevator videos and snow-centric guerrilla marketing in cold-weather feeder markets and a continued evolution of the St. Pete/Clearwater brand that encourages visitors to Live Amplified, according to a press release. Officials say the new direction showcases the youthful vibrancy and diversity visitors experience in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, from soaking in the sunshine to rocking a kayak through mangroves to diving into the mind of Dali. Weve worked very hard to re-invent the St. Pete/Clearwater brand over the last six years, said VSPC Deputy Director David Downing. So this amped-up evolution is built upon a solid foundation, one based on market research and proven results of consistent tourism growth across our target markets. The plan also incorporates a shot of adrenaline for St. Pete/Clearwater logo, which will be bursting into 3-D print, and pulsing and spinning via animation in video and online. The logo will appear on 12 million Floridas Natural orange juice cartons in supermarkets throughout the United States starting in January. A St. Pete/Clearwater vacation sweepstakes teaser will appear on the front panel of the cartons, and a side panel ad will encourage people to enter for a chance to win a trip to the natural choice for a beach getaway. St. Pete/Clearwater is ready to begin its winter marketing campaign in New York and Chicago. Street-level advertising in Toronto will entice visitors with slogans such as We salt margaritas, not sidewalks. TOURISM, from page 1A My kitties were the stars in it, she said with a smile. The rare breed cats, like her art, are for sale, and Svyatogor has even shipped the kittens to such faraway places as Brazil and South Korea in order to find them good homes. To see them, visit purringan gelscattery.com. Even when she is not busy raising rare kittens, conceptualizing fashions or crafting collectibles, Svyatogor always seems to find herself drawn to the world of art. I love visiting galleries, attending art shows and going to costumed and themed events and masquerades, she said. Pretty much anything creative is always of interest to me anything I can learn from, anything that is beautiful, pure, unordinary, meaningful, artistic and inspiring.

She also owns a cat breed business. At right, Tara Lightfoot models one of Ioulia Svyatogors designs. NOISE, from page 1ACommissioner Jamie Robinson admitted to a potentially loud car stereo in the past, but argued that any driver playing loud music only disturbs residents for a few moments while he or she drives by, or for two or three minutes at a stoplight. He was against creating an ordinance when the state statute provided a better process. I have no interest in seeing anything like this at all. I dont understand why we would want to burden the police, he said. Commissioner Robert Murray agreed on the same basis any potential disturbance the ordinance could address would be temporary. I dont think its worth proceeding on this case, for somethings thats temporary, he said. Holmes disagreed. When you have 20 or 30 temporary (disturbances) a day go by your house at 3 oclock in the morning change rattling on your dresser because some moron driving down the road with his blasters on so loud its unbelievable you may think differently about this, he said. Government had an obligation to ensure domestic tranquility, which was violated by drivers with loud music, he argued. Still, Holmes wasnt in favor of attracting excess litigation and agreed that the issue could wait for state clarification. I think somewhere down the road, we really need to address this thing. I am not the Lone Ranger of this. There are plenty of folks that are really chapped about this deal, he said. Im tired of hearing about this. I get calls in my office: When are you going to do something about this? Mayor Pat Gerard said she understood Holmes distress. Its unfortunate that some people are jerks, she said.Mixed recycling moves forwardThe city of Largo will be dropping off the wider range of recyclable materials it plans on collecting in February to the Progressive Waste Solutions facility in downtown St. Petersburg. The commission approved a five-year contract with the company that currently provides the same service to Hillsborough County. Were excited about the partnership, said Ian Boyle, government affairs manager for Progressive Waste Solutions. The city estimates that its three recycle trucks will make the 28-minute trip to the facility at 1190 20th St. N. twice a day each. The company will charge the city a contractor fee of $50 per ton of materials, subtracted from a calculated market value of the recyclables it collects each month.Pending annexations studiedThe commissioners also heard a report from St. Petersburg College public policy student Michele Gray, who conducted a survey to determine the impact of more than 300 impending annexations on city departments. Her findings will assist in next years citywide report on the departments ability to serve the new residents and businesses. Shes been very helpful and insightful, said Teresa Brydon, economic development manager. The city has been weighing how to best handle the excess of annexation agreements properties that are receiving city services but dont have to pay city taxes until an ordinance officially moves the city boundaries. Due to budget cuts, the city does not have a dedicated staff person to process the requests. The more than 300 agreements currently on file could take up to three years to process, and the city receives new agreements every month. Gray cautioned the city to not terminate any agreements, so as not to tarnish any future relationships. She recommended the city eliminate redundancies, particularly by creating a single spreadsheet that would contain all the necessary information for annexations and travel between departments, rather than each department maintaining their own spreadsheet. Gray also agreed with a commissioners suggestion of a temporary hold on new voluntary annexation agreements. An unpaid intern position that would transition into a part-time job could begin the work of processing grouped annexations, she said. Brydon said city staff would be presenting a new report on the progress of the annexations in January, at which time the commission could discuss potential new policies. CorrectionThe story, Traveling wall gives tribute to vets, in the Largo Leader Nov. 14, incorrectly identified the hometown of David Knox, a casualty in the Vietnam War. It is Dolton, Ill.

President Barack Obama signed legislation Nov. 13 by U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and others to rename the Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medical Center in Florida after the late U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young. Nelson, who serves as a senior member of the Senates Armed Services Committee, was able to fast track the bill through the Senate, where it was approved Oct. 31 following House passage the week before. President Obama signed the bill Nov. 13. This is a fitting way to recognize Bill Youngs extraordinary legacy of public service and his unwavering support of our veterans, Nelson said. After 42 years in Congress, Young died Oct. 18 and was laid to rest in the Bay Pines National Cemetery Oct. 24 adjacent to the medical center that will now bear his name. According to the legislation, the Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Bay Pines is now known as the C.W. Bill Young Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center.Qualifying ends for District 13 House seatProspective candidates had only 30 hours to qualify with the state Division of Elections to run in the Jan. 14, 2014 special primary election to fill the position left vacant when Young died Oct. 18. The qualifying period began at 8 a.m. Monday and ended at noon Tuesday, Nov. 19. According to information posted at election.do s.state.fl.us, six candidates qualified by the deadline. Alex Sink, who lists her address as a P.O. Box in Clearwater, is the sole candidate for the Democrats. She qualified by paying a fee of $10,440. Lucas Overby of Clearwater, who represents the Libertarian Party of Florida, also qualified by paying a fee. Michael S. Levinson of St. Petersburg qualified as a write-in candidate. Three candidates qualified on the Republican side by paying the fee. Candidates include Mark Bircher of Seminole, David Jolly of Indian Rocks Beach and Kathleen Peters of South Pasadena. If its here, its there, said Debbie Beseth, who has lived on the street since 1991. Yesterday (Nov. 13) they were bringing cement trucks in and I didnt know what was going on down here, she said. I didnt know it was construction. The neighborhood is usually quiet, she said. Tammy and Chris Ehmig live two doors away from one of the homes that were evacuated. Waking up at about 6 a.m., Chris saw these red flashing lights all over the front yard. I thought, ah man, somebodys hurt, or somethings bad happening. We came outside; there were helicopters, fire trucks all up and down the road, he said. The Ehmigs are concerned about their neighbors. They are friends. They are losing a lot. Its heartbreaking, Tammy said. But thank God, everybody got out safe. One of the houses thats really crumbling on the back side they were able to get their grandson out and everybodys OK. Tammy said about 11 or 12 years ago, a large sinkhole formed at Pinehurst and Robmar roads. It swallowed up half of a neighbors yard and the whole middle of the street, she said. Despite the sinkholes, the Ehmigs dont plan to relocate. Its part of living in Florida, Tammy said. SINKHOLE, from page 1AEndorsements coming in for Greenlight PinellasCLEARWATER After working with partners and colleagues for months to help craft a comprehensive transportation plan for the future of Pinellas County, members of the Greenlight Council fully endorsed the transportation blueprint they helped create during a Nov. 6 meeting at Pinellas Realtors Association, 4590 Ulmerton Road. The Greenlight Council, made up of local civic, business and government leaders, had asked for independent validation of financial assumptions for parts of the plan before granting approval. Those portions involve plans outlining proposed bus improvements and the implementation of a future light rail line. Scrubbing the numbers and being able to answer the publics question, If I give you my penny, can you do what you say youre going to do? with a resounding yes is very important and unusual, said Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority Chairman Ronnie Duncan. Its unusual to do this kind of detailed analysis at this point in the process and for that I commend PSTA and its partners in this process. After receiving validation of the Greenlight Pinellas financial assumptions from experts at Ernst and Young and HNTB Corporation, the council unanimously voted to endorse the plan. Members will now take the plan to Pinellas County Commissioners and request that a funding proposal be placed on the Nov. 4, 2014 ballot. Over the next few weeks, county staff will work with PSTA to craft ballot language for the referendum asking voters to change transit funding in Pinellas County from its current .7305 mill property tax to a one percent sales tax. That process will include a Commission workshop on Dec. 3 and a public hearing tentatively scheduled for Dec. 10. To learn more about the plan, along with supporting study documentation, visit www.greenlightpinellas.com. PSTA ridership continues to growST. PETERSBURG On the heels of a new annual record for all-time ridership, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority continues to post exceptionally strong ridership numbers as it starts its new fiscal year. In October, the agency provided 1,278,051 rides making for the second highest total for October in agency history. October 2012 was highest ever. PSTA officials said although ridership was up on their regular routes last month, the temporary closing of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for a movie shoot dropped shuttle ridership between CMA and Winters Dolphin Tale Adventure by more than 15,000 as compared to October 2012. When you consider the probable impact the new movie will have on our economy, the short term dip in ridership is nothing compared to the increases that were expecting after the movie opens, said PSTA spokesperson Bob Lasher. PSTA leaders continue working to find ways to meet the growing demand for ridership and to ease overcrowding on many routes. Our Suncoast Beach Trolley vehicles have 30 seats on every bus. When I rode from Pier 60 to Clearwater on Oct. 26, there were 34 other people waiting at my stop, Lasher said. And, all but three or four were commuters. Agency leaders are also encouraged by the fact that the demand for service remains strong even though fuel prices have dropped precipitously over the past few weeks. They say that its very common for riders to continue using transit when fuel prices drop, since monthly bus passes are still cheaper than the average fill-up and they enjoy the stress relief of not having to drive on crowded roads.

Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced that early voting is scheduled from Jan. 4-12, 2014. Florida is a closed primary state, meaning only voters registered with a political party can vote within their partys primary election. In other words, only registered Republicans can vote in the Republican primary. Mail ballots are tentatively scheduled to go out beginning Nov. 27 for overseas and absent military with ballots for voters in Pinellas County scheduled for mailing on Dec. 13. The deadline to register to vote in the primary election is Dec. 16. The last day to change party affiliations also is Dec. 16. The special general election is scheduled on March 11, 2014.

Its a tradition, and its humbling, said Major Sean Jowell, with the Sheriffs Office Support Services, who has participated in Ride & Run with the Stars for more years than he can remember. This years event is Saturday, Dec. 7, 8 a.m. to noon, at Fort De Soto Park. Ride & Run with the Stars has taken place the first Saturday in December since 1983. The event was the brainchild of three former deputies, Michael Platt, Scott Stiner and Gary Herbine. Back in those days, employees of the Sheriffs Office would donate their own money to try to help families and children they knew needed help, especially during the holidays. But the need was too great. They couldnt do enough on their own. So, Platt, who retired as a captain and now works at the Sheriffs Office as range master, Stiner, now a retired captain, and Herbine, a retired lieutenant, came up with the idea to have a bicycle riding event at Fort De Soto to raise money for the children. It was a very simple thing, but it really took off and grew, Jowell said. Now, its the 20th anniversary. The event is the largest law enforcement organized holiday charity fundraiser in the Tampa Bay area. Over the years, more than $500,000 in donations and proceeds have gone to the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project. The money helps fulfill the wish lists of children, some known to the Sheriffs Office because they were involved with cases of violent crime. Others may come from families who were victims of economic crime. All have interacted with the sheriffs office for some reason. The families fill out an application and provide a wish list of needs. Members of the Christmas Sharing Project closely vet each family to make sure they arent getting help elsewhere and truly have a need. We spend hours going over the applications, Jowell said. The children dont ask for anything big, he said. The wish lists dont include the latest gaming console or newest phone. Its humbling to see that, he said. They ask for clothes, underwear, socks. We have teens asking for their very first bike. They ask for simple things. For the past few years, Bechtel Financial has donated bicycles and others have donated helmets. Jowell said Bechtel would be donating bicycles again this year. Helmets will come from the sheriffs office. No monetary goal has been set for this years event, just as much as we can possibly get, Jowell said. In recent years, the Ride & Run with the Stars has brought in between $40,000 to $50,000. More than a 100 volunteers from the sheriffs agency and others will gather at the Target on Tyrone Boulevard, which will open two hours early Dec. 17, to shop for each child on their list. It is likely that some wont get everything they requested. We purchase as much as we can, he said. It all depends on the number of children. Any leftover money pays for food for a holiday meal. Jowell said the sheriffs office usually collaborates with a local grocery store, in past years it has been Publix. Families get a gift certificate they can use to buy a turkey and sides. Prior to Christmas Day, Community Policing deputies play Santa and personally deliver the gifts to the families. Theyre all appreciative of what they receive, Jowell said. These families dont have a sense of entitlement.About the eventJowell said planning for Ride & Run with the Stars is a year-round activity, which contributes to its success. The main events focus on bicycling, running and walking. All activities are within Fort De Soto Park. Registration begins at 7 a.m. Dec. 7. Advance registration is available online at www.rideandrunwiththestars.com or pick up a form at the Sheriffs Office, 10750 Ulmerton Road, Largo. Registration fee is $35 a person, which includes the selected race, a long-sleeve logo T-shirt (for the first 750 registrants), food and giveaways. For the $35 fee, participants can choose between the 25 mile run, which begins at 8 a.m.; a 10K Family Bike Ride, which starts at 8:15 a.m.; 5K certified race, which begins at 8:30 a.m.; or the 1-mile fun walk/skate, with a start time of 8:45 a.m. Parking fees at Fort De Soto Park are waived for registered participants. Jowell said the 5K chipped race was a first-time event. The electronic chips will accurately monitor each runners time. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded in each age group. He said the new event was part of the effort to make the event better every year. Lots of activities are planned and everyone is welcome whether theyHoliday fundraiser celebrates 20th anniversaryRide & Run with the Stars, set for Dec. 7 this year, raises funds for the Sheriffs Christmas Sharing Project Photo courtesy of PCSOBicyclists pass under the Ride & Run with the Stars banner as they participate in a past event at Fort De Soto Park.

After three years of steady increases 6.1 percent, 8.9 percent and 7.8 percent, respectively the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) approved a meager 0.7 percent increase for the coming year. Several days ago, the Office of Insurance Regulation signaled they would only accept a 0.7 percent increase, and last week OIR approved the amended rate filing. Chambers of commerce have been a major force helping lead the fight to reduce rates over the past few years. Earlier this year, the Florida Legislature passed SB 662 designed to close a drug repackaging loophole. When signed into law by Governor Rick Scott, workers compensation insurance rates declined by 0.7 percent, which is why rates will remain flat in 2014. The effort of the Florida Chamber on the drug repackaging bill alone meant savings for Floridas businesses of $20 million per year in reduced workers compensation insurance rates Supporting Business & CommunityWe salute the following businesses and organizations that joined or renewed their association with the Chamber during the past month.

The Bowboard merges a bow, frame and spiral gearing mechanism that moves you forward when stepping on the bow. While it shares elements with bicycles, kick scooters and skateboards, its main method of propulsion is completely revolutionary. Theres no pedals, no chains, no motor, no batteries, no sprockets, said Brian Gallagher in a press release. Gallagher is CEO of Bowboard. Its just gravity and you. When riding on the Bowboard its patented technology converts the riders body weight and bouncing motion into forward movement. According to the press release, the underlying idea behind the development of the Bowboard was to design a product that would be both fun and fast to ride, while also possessing that cool factor kids demand. After seven years of hard-work and dedication, the team behind Bowboard is ready to reveal it to the public. Shying away from corporate America, the Bowboard project was launched on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter.com. We want to be backed by those who believe in Bowboard as a safe, fun and alternative way to travel, said Gallagher.Salon West stylists attend Redken ExchangeSeveral Salon West stylists recently sharpened their skills at The Redken Exchange in New York City.

Operation Safe Families concludedLARGO Sheriff Bob Gualtieri recently announced the results of Operation Safe Families, a month-long Florida Sheriffs Task Force statewide operation targeting subjects wanted for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-support. Operation Safe Families began on Oct. 13 and ran through Saturday, Nov. 9. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcements 2012 Uniform Crime Report, 108,046 domestic violence offenses were reported to law enforcement agencies last year, and 202 individuals died as a result of domestic violence, which represents approximately 20 percent of all homicides in the state of Florida. In an effort to create a renewed consciousness and make the public aware of the very serious problem of domestic violence, the Florida Sheriffs Task Force launched Operation Safe Families. The initiative set out to target two classes of fugitives outstanding warrants for domestic violence and writs of bodily attachment for non-payment of child support. Across the state, 33 sheriffs offices joined the effort. The month-long operation resulted in more than 5,500 arrest charges, including service of 387 domestic violence warrants and 772 writs of bodily attachment. The unified effort also was successful in making 2,586 probable cause arrests for domestic violence and in placing 89 children into protective custody. Additional arrests stem from other domestic violence related charges, among them resisting arrest with violence and without violence. Domestic violence impacts the lives of countless families and innocent children. Besides the immediate physical pain and emotional trauma often caused by domestic violence, I am greatly concerned because it is a cyclical behavior that harms the growth and development of the next generation our children. While the formal task force known as Operation Safe Families has ended, citizens should rest assured knowing that no matter what day it is, the sheriffs of Florida will continue working to combat domestic violence, Gualtieri said. The partnership between law enforcement agencies, certified domestic violence centers and the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence is critical in our collective efforts to ensure that perpetrators are held accountable for their violence. We always encourage anyone needing assistance to contact their local certified domestic violence center or the statewide Florida Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-500-1119, said Tiffany Carr, president and CEO for the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence. By SUZETTE PORTERPinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri notified his staff Nov. 11 of a new zero-tolerance DUI policy. Driving while impaired by alcohol or controlled substances is not only illegal, it is dangerous and causes serious injury and death, Gualtieri said in his written notice. As members of law enforcement we must set an example for our community and adhere personally to the laws we enforce. Moreover, we must do the right thing and driving while impaired is doing the wrong thing. Every person who drives while impaired makes the bad decision to do so it is a conscious decision and a choice that disregards human life. Before Gualtieri changed the policy, members of the sheriffs office charged with a DUI would receive a seven-day suspension if they had no prior disciplines on their record. The existing general orders allows a discipline range from a seven-day suspension to termination. Gualtieri said, We have experienced more member involved DUIs recently, this troubles me greatly and it is something that must stop. Again the decision to drive impaired is a conscious decision and one that can easily be avoided. Gualtieri said the new policy applied only to DUI charges after the new policy went into effect Nov. 11. He communicated the new policy so everyone was aware in advance of the consequences of their actions. Effective immediately I will no longer impose the minimum seven-day suspension for DUIs and the consequence for any member of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office who operates a vehicle while above the legal alcohol limit of .08 percent blood alcohol content, or is convicted of a DUI will be termination of employment, Gualtieri said. This will be automatic and exceptions will not be made for anyone regardless of rank or position within the agency. Gualtieri said if a member of the sheriffs office refuses to blow during the criminal investigation, as is done now, a member of the Administrative Investigative Division would go to the jail and require an administrative blow. If the blow shows an alcohol level of .08 percent or higher, the employee would be terminated. I never want to be in the position of having to terminate anyones employment; however, I also do not want to be the one knocking on the door of someones home at 2 a.m. telling them that their loved one was killed by a DUI driver especially one that works for PCSO. There is an easy solution to avoid any consequence of this new policy dont drive while impaired. her on multiple occasions at a private residence in Pinellas County. Detectives continued their investigation through the month of October and obtained a warrant for the suspect on Oct. 28. Detectives contacted Willis Tuesday, Nov. 12, in Sumter County. Willis denied the allegations. Willis was arrested and is currently being held at the Sumter County Jail.Students hospitalized after taking drugsSEMINOLE Five students at Seminole Middle School ended up at a local hospital Monday afternoon after they ingested prescription medications illegally brought to school by a classmate. Elizabeth Sauls, 14, of Madeira Beach, an eighth grade student at the middle school, 8701 131st St. N., brought the prescription medication hydroxyzine, which she took from her parents, to the school this morning. She distributed the medication to at least four other female eighth graders, and she took the drug herself. Later in the afternoon, the five teens began to feel ill. They were taken to a local hospital about 2 p.m. as a precaution. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office reported Monday evening that their condition was non-life-threatening. Sauls will be charged with one felony count of dispensing medication without a license and a misdemeanor count of possession of a prescription medication without a prescription. According to drugs.com, hydroxyzine reduces activity in the central nervous system. Hydroxyzine can cause side effects that may impair thinking or reactions, among other things.Man arrested in accidental shootingSEMINOLE A Seminole man was arrested Nov. 18 after accidentally shooting a 17 year old under his care. James Harrison Wolf, who has prior convictions of crimes in California, is being held on $7,500 bond at the Pinellas County Jail. He is charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Wolf also is a registered sex offender. According to the Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives the shooting happened just before midnight Sunday, Nov. 17, at a private residence on Anchorage Circle in Seminole. Detectives said Taylor Titus, 17, left his home about 9 p.m. without telling his caregivers, James Wolf, 55, and Nancy Wolf, 56, and returned home shortly before midnight. When Titus got home, Wolf was preparing to go to sleep and had turned off all the lights in the home. Wolf then heard a noise coming from the back of the home, grabbed his handgun and went to check his residence. Wolf noticed a subject near the backdoor and ordered him to freeze. The subject began to walk toward Wolf. Wolf then fired one shot, hitting the subject. When the subject stumbled toward Wolf, he realized it was Titus. Titus was transported to a local hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries.Sheriff announces zero-tolerance for DUIs James Harrison WolfWKMJ 102.1 FM taken off the airPINELLAS PARK Officers with the Pinellas Park Police Departments Community Redevelopment Area Policing unit and investigators from the Federal Communications Commission wrapped up an investigation Nov. 15 of a pirate radio station operating within the city limits of Pinellas Park. Investigators determined that Joseph Kervenson, 27, of Kenneth City was listed as the CEO of the pirate radio station using the call letters of WKMJ 102.1 FM. According to a report from Pinellas Park police, the radio station was broadcasting over the FM airways without licensing from the FCC a third degree felony in the state of Florida. During the investigation, officers seized the radio transmitter and antenna used for the illegal broadcast. The business located at 6251 Park Blvd. Suite 9-F in Pinellas Park was secured and the radio broadcast was terminated. Kervenson was charged with unauthorized transmissions to, or interference with, a public or commercial radio station licensed by the FCC. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $5,000.Man arrested for molesting childPinellas County detectives arrested a Sumter County man Nov. 12 for Sexual Battery on a Child Under 12 at a private residence at an undisclosed location in Pinellas County. Detectives began their investigation on Oct. 14, when a female disclosed that Charles Michael Willis II, 24, of Bushnell had molested her between the years of 2002 and 2003. The victim would have been age 6 and Willis age 13. The victim advised detectives that Willis molested Firefighters prevent high-rise fireCLEARWATER Clearwater Fire and Rescue firefighters responded to a call at a high-rise condo, 1200 Gulf Blvd., on Nov. 12, according to a fire report.

Last week, Hillsborough County Animal Services announced that several dogs at its shelter tested positive for respiratory coronavirus and pneumovirus. Dogs at the shelter were tested as part of a Cornell University research study. If you notice your dog has runny eyes, a runny nose, or is sneezing and/or coughing, you should immediately contact your veterinarian, said Barry Kellogg, VMD, in a press release. Kellogg is HSVMAs senior veterinary advisor. Management of canine infectious respiratory disease in dogs housed in close proximity to one another remains a challenge, and it is critical that veterinarians working in and with animal shelters are familiar with its various causes. CIRDC is commonly known as kennel cough. The pneumovirus and respiratory coronavirus are just two of the viruses that cause respiratory diseases. Any of these upper respiratory infections cause an illness similar to when a human gets the flu; however, these are not the same disease as the Canine Flu. The viruses are not usually deadly, but infected animals should be given veterinary care, including antibiotics for secondary infections. While respiratory coronavirus and pneumovirus are not contagious to humans or cats, Hillsborough County Animal Services the only shelter in the area has taken steps to confine the viruses. The shelter temporarily halted adoptions, and will only accept sick or injured dogs, dogs who have bitten someone and dogs deemed dangerous. There is no way to prevent outbreaks such as this, but animals vaccinated for the upper respiratory complex may fare better in such situations. Pet owners should make sure their animals are properly vaccinated.FranklinAt 4.5 months old, striking Franklin will delight your soul.

He practices fine leadership skills.St. Cecelia second-graders visit RCSCLEARWATER The second-grade students of St. Cecelia Catholic School in Clearwater recently took a field trip to Religious Community Services. RCS helps many of the poor and homeless of Pinellas County by providing them with food and personal hygiene items. The second-graders working on a Pay it Forward project collected personal hygiene items and food to donate to RCS. A tour of the facility let students see first-hand what RCS does for the community, and opened the eyes of the students to the needs of others. During the tour students were surprised to see that the bins that held the hygiene items were completely empty. Thanks to the donations that the students had collected the bins were once again full of items at the conclusion of their tour. Teachers of St. Cecelia School had talked about the word altruism and the difference between selfish versus selfless, and how the students were selfless for taking a field trip to help others instead of going on a field trip that would be about them.

Viewpoints 13A Leader, November 21, 2013A year ago I made the mistake of subscribing to a nutrition advice publication called Eat right or die! They gave my name to other health and nutrition magazines. Now Im drowning in food-related advice and factoids. Here are some examples. Did you know that if you try to cook a rabbit in your microwave oven, the rabbit will really not appreciate it? You should first boil the rabbit in a large pot; the way Glenn Close did in the film Fatal Attraction. Next time your mother-in-law gives you a box of grapefruit or grapefruit juice, she may be trying to kill you. Thats because science has identified more than 85 common drugs that may interact poorly (i.e., explode) when brought in contact with grapefruit. Not actually explode. Just make you dizzy or cause gastrointestinal bleeding. If you dont eat right and put on too much weight, chances are your brain will turn into oatmeal faster than if you ate properly and stayed slim. Furthermore, if you have a low level of vitamin C and beta-carotene, you may be inviting Alzheimers disease into your life. So check with your doctor. Or at least have a beta-carotene discussion at your next bridge club or Elks meeting. Nutrition newsletters can be disillusioning, even though helpful. For the past 23 years my Aunt Rachel has been giving me 10 pounds of sea salt at Christmas. Its better for you than table salt, she said. And I believed her. So I spent the ensuing 12 months putting sea salt on everything I ate, including tapioca pudding. But Aunt Rachel was wrong. The experts now say that sea salt is not viable as a sodium-reduction measure. It contains almost as much sodium as table salt, and really doesnt taste that much better. For years, scientists and the food industry have been removing transfat and gluten from our diets. Where does all that unwanted stuff go, once its taken away? I have wondered that, and now I have an unconfirmed report: Nebraska. My sources tell me that two separate fields each 5 miles square, 40 miles west of Lincoln have been set aside for the gluten and transfat. Both substances will remain there for the next 20 years while the experts answer this question: What are we gonna do with this stuff? Have you noticed that during the past few years TV programs about food and cooking have increased almost as much as Spanishlanguage channels? Along with whiter teeth, clear skin and trashy sit-coms, Americans love food. One result of that is that more babies are being given the names of food items. Dont be surprised if you hear about infants named Aspic, Watercress, Finocchio, Ratatouille, Cumin and Horehound. Do you suffer from osteoarthritis? Are you easily confused by what you read? If so, forget about doing research on the various drugs and food supplements aimed at reducing arthritis pain. Youll end up not knowing whether to toss out or keep most of the contents of your bathroom shelf. A detailed report in Nutrition Action reported on studies of glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, fish oil, krill oil, Vitamin D and SAM-e all of which have been touted as painkillers for arthritis patients. The verdict on the studies: you might as well flip a coin to decide whether to buy these medicines. Pain reduction was either absent or minimal. Ive been popping glucosamine tablets for years, but now Im quitting. Alzheimers and peanut butter? Those were main items in a University of Florida study, in which subjects were asked to sniff a spoonful of peanut butter as it was held several inches from their noses. Of 94 patients tested, 18 had already been diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimers. All 18 were less able to smell the peanut butter with their left nostrils than their right nostrils. A degraded sense of smell is a recognized Alzheimers symptom. Because Alzheimers usually affects the left side of the brain first, researchers believe the sniffing test may help to better detect the onset of the affliction. But they warn the public that self-administered peanut butter tests be avoided, since odor sensitivity can be affected by many factors. In your nutrition reading, you are sure to find a warning about your favorite food or drink. The experts have a knack for finding something dangerous in almost every food or beverage known. But dont be discouraged. The flip side is that, each week, scientists discover that a previously-banned item has been given the okay. Even as I finish writing this column, I see on the Web that moderate consumption of beer may help ward off cancer. And several times a year researchers change their minds about coffee one month it will bring an early death, but a short time later we learn that caffeine may cure impetigo or conniption fits. So dont give up just keep reading, and eating.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@com cast.net.House Speaker John Boehner told reporters Wednesday that the GOP leadership has no intention of going to conference committee on the Senates comprehensive immigration bill passed in June. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy told Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles Director Angelica Salas last week that the House would not pass its immigration package this year. Not enough time. But in Washington, theres always time for the blame game. This week, The Hill ran a two-part autopsy on immigration reform and concluded: Both parties are responsible for the efforts demise. Boehner wouldnt commit. His rank-andfile didnt trust President Barack Obama to enforce a new law, given the presidents 2012 executive order to flout immigration law and halt the deportation of DREAM Act-eligible residents. The White House pressed House Democrats not to reach a deal before the Senate, even though the House is the linchpin. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., told The Hill: It is clear to me that there was no strategy on the White Houses part post-Senate victory. Because the Senate victory was the strategy. That statement confirms the rights longstanding suspicion that the left doesnt really want immigration reform, not when Democrats can use the issue to lather up anti-GOP anger among Latino voters. Obama did not deliver on his 2008 promise to push an immigration bill during his first year in office, even though Democrats controlled the White House, Senate and House during the first two years of his presidency. Only after Democrats lost the House in 2010 did that lame-duck body pass the DREAM Act to offer citizenship to children brought into the country illegally by their parents. Because supporters couldnt deliver the 60 votes needed in the Senate five Democrats voted no it tanked. Salas told me Tuesday that both parties hold equal responsibility for the measures failing. She insisted her group doesnt want to keep the issue alive to help one party bury the other. There is a way forward. The GOP caucus has been working on piecemeal bills to address immigration reform, including its own version of the DREAM Act, the Kids Act. The problem is, Salas noted, nothing is in writing yet. At least show your cards, she challenged. National Journal reported that Republicans are fighting over whether to allow DREAM kids to sponsor their undocumented parents for green cards. Understandably, Salas objects. Every citizen has that right, she said. If this Kids Act treats all citizens equally, her group would be wise to support it. Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year. Otherwise, their main contribution to the immigration debate will be passage of a measure to resume deporting DREAMers spared by Obamas pen. Is that the message they want to send to Latino voters? Id rather Americans hear the words of Kids Act supporter Eric Cantor. The House majority leader said in February, One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents.Email Debra J.

Debra Saunders Jury duty proves interesting for newspaper editor John Deering is chief editorial cartoonist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the state's largest newspaper. Winner of the National Press Foundation's 1997 Berryman Award, Deering also gained top honors in the 1994 national John Fischetti Cartoon Competition and was the seven-time winner of the Arkansas Press Association's Best Editorial Cartoonist award. Born in 1956 in Little Rock, Deering has been drawing since his childhood fascination with science ction and dinosaurs. He and his wife, Kathy, have a daughter and two sons, and live in Little Rock. He still draws dinosaurs. About the cartoonistI have always felt its our civic responsibility to serve on a jury. But when a letter recently came in the mail from the Pinellas County Clerk of the Court, requesting my presence for jury duty, I had mixed emotions. On one hand, I looked forward to the opportunity to serve but on the flip side of the coin, like so many of us, I didnt have the time. After giving it some thought and discussing the matter with a colleague, I decided to postpone my day of duty to early November. The clerk agreed and I showed up on the day specified at the Pinellas County Justice Center on 49th Street. At 8 oclock sharp, about 125 of us filed into a large room where the waiting began. After we all filled out a brief questionnaire, the waiting continued. About a half-hour later we watched a pair of fairly good orientation videos, which outlined the history of the justice system in the United States and explained just why we were there that day. Then there was more waiting. Finally, about two hours into the process, a county employee informed us that there was a light docket that day and a good chance many of us would be excused early. I figured since Im a newspaper editor, I would probably receive that distinction. But no. About a half-hour later, a county employee read out a list of potential jurors who were excused. And, of course, I was not among them. OK, I thought, maybe today is the day I get selected. Time wore on before we were informed the remaining 50 or so of us needed to stay tuned. There might be a need for a jury panel involving some of us, they told us. And guess what, I got the call. So about 30 of us were escorted up to a fourth floor courtroom where jury selection began in the courtroom of Judge Timothy Peters. We were asked a number of questions, including would we be available if the case extended into a second day. I thought, sure, I can do that. But not everybody was on the same page. One woman, for example, got excused because she had two dogs at home that needed to have their medication by 6 p.m. Another said she wouldnt be available because her sons youth football team was playing in a big game over on the east coast of Florida and she would be in transit on the second day. Others had previous convictions, which basically eliminated them, and others had previous issues with being a victim of a crime. Others said they knew law enforcement members or had family members that were law enforcement officers. That pretty much eliminated them. After all of this, we all filed out of the courtroom, had lunch and came back to find out if we were selected. Juries in Florida have six members and an alternate. So seven of us were going to be selected. As the names were being called out, I thought again I might be excused. But no. When it came down to the sixth and final person, I got the call. A woman behind me was selected as the alternate. The jury of three men and three women was there to hear a felony case against a young Clearwater man charged with sale and possession of crack cocaine. The states case was based on the testimony of an undercover informant who said he purchased crack from the defendant in a Clearwater crack house about a year ago. The state reinforced the case with a video it claimed showed the transaction going down. On the night of the alleged deal, the informant was wired with an audio/video system that was invisible to those around him. Unfortunately, the Clearwater Police detective that set the informant up to wear it had no previous experience with the equipment and the camera shot haphazardly in the wrong direction. The audio worked OK but it was unclear who was speaking. So, in essence, the video/audio was inconclusive. We had to toss it out. Then there was the testimony of the informant and the police detective. The informant was doing this task only to keep himself out of jail from a previous drug conviction. He openly admitted he visited the crack house before the date of the alleged deal many times and continued to buy cocaine afterward, spending as much as $200 to $1,000 per week. His credibility was sketchy, at best. The police detectives testimony was good. But since he didnt actually see the deal happen (he was outside driving around in an unmarked car), there was no way of proving the defendant was the person who actually made the sale or was actually in possession of crack cocaine. There were at least seven people in the crack house that evening. So it could have been any number of those people who were in possession of crack and actually sold the drugs to the informant. After two hours of deliberation, we finally came to the conclusion that the defendant could not be found guilty on either charge. Was the defendant guilty? More than likely. But with the evidence the jury had to work with, a not guilty verdict was the only direction we could go. I walked out of the Justice Center that evening with mixed emotions about what had happened. But I took solace in the fact that the justice system did what it is supposed to do. As Judge Peters made clear to us on more than one occasion, we were to base our decision on the evidence. We did just that.Young family touched by show of support Editor: I wanted to take the time to say thank you to all of those who came out to show their respects and honor my brother. Not only at the public viewing and the service. As my family and I drove from the Indian Rocks church to Bay Pines we couldnt help but to notice your presence. My heart was deeply touched by all those who stood on the side of the rode waving the flags, saluting and sharing a piece of history with families and friends. Thank you, to all those who were waiting at intersections and in parking lots while the funeral procession went past. Thank you to all the businesses that have put signs out thanking and honoring Bill. My brother will be sorely missed not only locally and nationally but as well as in out familys hearts. As most of you know my brother and I came from humble beginnings together and I am proud of my brother and all that he has done for this country. The Tom Young family. Pinellas Park Bob McClure Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year.

DOH-Pinellas offers employers free assistance in developing tobacco cessation programs, whether its through the companys health insurance provider or the states free cessation services. Nearly 70 percent of smokers want to quit and getting help through their employers can increase their chance of success while simultaneously benefiting the business. Health care costs are one of the largest expenses facing Pinellas Countys businesses. On average, health care costs for employees who smoke are up to 34 percent higher compared to non-smokers. Every employee who smokes can cost employers an extra $2,056 a year in health care expenses. Tobacco use is also the leading cause of productivity loss at work. In fact, each smoker can cost a business an average of $4,056 every year in lost productivity including sick days, distraction at work and smoking breaks. Workers who smoke at least one pack a day experience 75 percent more productivity loss than non-smoking workers. Businesses who want to help their employees quit tobacco should also implement a tobacco free grounds policy at their workplace, said Tobacco Free Florida Bureau Chief Shannon Hughes. These policies are one of the most effective ways to help employees quit and it creates a healthier environment for all. Tobacco-free grounds policies nearly double the chance that employees will quit. For those that do not quit, the policy will reduce the number of cigarettes smoked by employees during the week. Tobacco-free grounds policies are easy to enforce. More than 80 percent of Floridians do not smoke and research has shown compliance rates for tobacco free grounds policies to be more than 96 percent. For more information, call Healthy Pinellas coordinator Rosie Bailey at 588-4040, ext. 3170 or email Rosie.Bailey@flhealth.gov. The Departments Tobacco Free Florida campaign is a statewide cessation and prevention campaign funded by Floridas tobacco settlement fund. Tobacco users interested in quitting are encouraged to use one of the states three ways to quit.

Volunteers campaign for ObamacareLARGO Members of Organizing for Action in Pinellas County and the National Organization for Women in West Pinellas joined ranks to underline the benefits offered by Obamacare on 118th Avenue North, in front of Beckwith Electric Company, in Largo Nov. 13. The action event was aimed at helping start family conversations about the facts of the Affordable Care Act. Women traditionally take lead roles in family health matters and taking advantage of the laws provisions is expected to be part of their efforts as uninsured Americans sign up for coverage in the next several months. Another action event, an information session at the Dunedin Public Library, attracted two dozen people later in the day. Organizing for Action is a nonprofit grassroots organization not affiliated with any political party or candidate. In the face of opposing campaigns, Organizing for Action volunteers are working to make progress one conversation at a time.

Dr. Parveen Vahora, a board-certified OB/GYN, performed a robotic laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy. Dr. Keith Gregory Chisholm, a board-certified general surgeon, performed a robotic laparoscopic single site cholecystectomy. The da Vinci Surgical System robot allows surgeons the opportunity to perform cervix-sparing hysterectomies and single-incision gallbladder surgeries, like those performed today which would have been impossible just a short time ago. The talent of our surgeons is supported by the range of motion and 3-D vision capabilities provided by the da Vinci robot, said Bruce Bergherm, president and CEO of Florida Hospital North Pinellas. Their passion and drive to provide the most advanced approaches to surgery to our patients is truly enhanced by this incredible technology. With minimally invasive procedures like a single-site/incision gallbladder surgery, patients can expect shorter recovery times, less pain and dramatically lessened scarring. For example, with a single-site robotic laparoscopic cholecystectomy, the gallbladder is removed via an incision in the belly-button, rather than using a larger incision in the abdomen with traditional surgery, or multiple points of entry from a traditional laparoscopic procedure.Morton Plant to offer CarFit CLEARWATER Morton Plant Mease Memory Disorders Clinic and the Aging Well Center are teaming up to offer CarFit, a free, new safety program designed to help older adults learn how the fit of their vehicle affects their driving and how to use their vehicles safety features. The CarFit event will take place Friday, Dec. 13, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Aging Well Center at The Long Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road. Older drivers are considered safer drivers because they are more likely to wear seatbelts and less apt to speed. However, they are more likely to be seriously injured or killed from a car accident due to their bodies fragility and improper fit in their cars, CarFit program organizers say. As people get older, changes happen in vision, strength, range of motion, weight and height that can cause less comfort making it harder to have control behind the wheel, said Celisa Bonner in a press release. Bonner is clinic coordinator at Madonna Ptak Center for Alzheimers and Memory Loss at Morton Plant Mease. The CarFit program is a good opportunity for a driver to find their safest fit with their car and to increase the drivers safety on the road as well as the safety of others. Drivers who attend the free community event will have a 12-point checklist done in about 20 minutes that includes checking if the driver: is sitting correctly and positioned at least 10 inches from the steering wheel; can reach the pedals easily with ones foot instead of toes causing slower reaction time; and has the flexibility to adjust mirrors and minimize blind spots. Trained volunteers will recommend car and driver adjustments after the inspection. Drivers interested in having a CarFit check are asked to preregister. Call 724-3070. CarFit is an educational and safety program created by the American Society on Aging, and developed in collaboration with American Automobile Association, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association.Morton Plant seeks volunteersMorton Plant Mease Health Care provides a variety of volunteer opportunities at hospitals and facilities throughout Pinellas and Pasco counties.

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.

Professional 020713 020713 Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder: The unfocused mindToday I jumped up from my chair, headed to the other room to get something, and half way there forgot what I was getting. It wasnt the first time that happened, but Ive learned that if I go back to where I started from, retracing my steps, I tend to remember. Thankfully, this doesnt happen very often because when it does, I lose a little confidence in my memory. The truth is, this happens to most people every now and then and its no big deal. All of our brains have a chemical in them called Dopamine, which, among other things, helps to regulate attention, cognition, motivation, mood, learning and memory. The catch is that we dont all have the same amount. Some of our Dopamine tanks are full at all times while others are only half or onequarter full. That makes a big difference in the way we think and behave. Imagine your Dopamine tank is only half full or one-quarter full and when you go into the other room to get something, you often forget what it is. And as hard as you try, you cant remember, so you lose confidence in yourself, especially about your memory and then you do something else. Imagine while youre doing that something else, you get hungry and have lunch. After lunch, you dont remember what you were doing prior to that, but the television is on and you get interested in a show. Two hours later, you glance at your watch and are surprised to see how long you had been in the TV zone. You look at your dirty dishes with every intention of washing them but something outside the window catches your eye and it makes you think of getting the mail. As you walk outside to get the mail, you look over to the side yard and see your wheelbarrow still full of the junk you meant to put in the dumpster. You tell yourself you better tend to that junk now before you forget it because it looks unsightly on the lawn, so you head over there to take care of it. Im sure you get the idea by now that this is an example of the thinking process of a brain with less than a full tank of Dopamine. This is only one possible scenario of many. Do you know someone who behaves this way? Do you behave this way? Its extremely uncomfortable and you would be surprised how many people dont have a clue that there may be help available. Many people have lived this way their entire lives, never having been diagnosed and always believing that this is just the way they are and theres nothing they can do about it. This is the C or D student, the one who doesnt understand the work and no matter how much help they get, it just doesnt seem to stick. This is the child or adult who has to work two or three times harder than the average person in order to get the same results. Unfortunately, this is also the kid or adult who is often belittled or made fun of due to their forgetfulness or inability to concentrate. Its also the person who can be moody sometimes or even seem defiant. Living with undiagnosed ADHD is harder than you may think. Its confusing, exhausting and even more, depressing. ADHD and depression go hand in hand. When ADHD is treated, very often depression improves. ADHD is lifelong, not something that will just get better with time, so it robs people of their optimism that it can get better. The good news is that ADHD can be managed very well and many symptoms do greatly improve. If you suspect you have ADHD, seek a good treatment program. While ADHD may have fueled your depression, the good news is that addressing the ADHD has the potential to really turn things around, in more ways than one. Remember that as your ADHD is treated, your life will improve and there are some good reasons for optimism about the future something that depression often robs us of. Take action, even if you arent motivated. Depression robs us of motivation and interest. Tell yourself that this will help you to feel better or at least take a chance that it might. Symptoms are generally treated with medicine, but its not just about taking a pill. There is much to learn about practical things like getting organized, and on other emotional issues that often come with ADHD. See my article next time on practical problem solving, learning organizational skills, setting goals, planning and time management.Dina Meitner, LCSW,a staff member at the Bay Pines VA Hospital from 2006-2013 is currently in private practice at 2081 Indian Rocks Road.

The race options include the 10K Turkey Trot, the 5K Wingding, the 5K Fun Run, the 1-mile Gobbler, and the Clearwater Challenge, which is the 5K, 1mile and 10K. The races all are on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, and all begin at Keene Road just south of Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard except for the 5K Fun Run, and they end in Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School. The Wingding begins at 7 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 5K Fun Run begins at 7:30 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day; the 1-mile Gobbler begins at 8:30 a.m. and costs $14 in advance or $15 on race day. The 10K Turkey Trot starts at 8:45 a.m. and costs $18 in advance or $23 on race day, and the Clearwater Challenge begins at 7 a.m. and costs $35 in advance or $40 on race day. Competitors can register online at www.tampabay.com/ turkeytrot, or at Fit 2 Run in either St. Petersburg or Tampa. The cost of registration includes the race, a T-shirt and goodies at the end of the race, said Skip Rogers, race director. People can register early through Friday, Nov. 22, at 3 p.m. For a full list of on-site registration locations, see the website. Late registration is available at limited locations through Monday, Nov. 25, at 3 p.m. Early T-shirt pickup and lastchance registration is available at the following times and locations: Monday, Nov. 25 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Bright House Networks, Westfield Countryside Mall on the second floor mall entrance near JC Penney, 27001 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or their T-shirt with race number and T-shirt tag. Tuesday, Nov. 26 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Fit 2 Run, 256 Second St. N., St. Petersburg. Online registrants can pick up their race numbers with their confirmation number and/or T-shirt with race number and T-shirt tag. The Turkey Trot Kickoff Party is set for Wednesday, Nov. 27, 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Jack White Stadium at Clearwater High School, 540 S. Hercules Ave. Money needs to be the exact amount in cash or check format. The public is invited to enjoy a fun, free evening that includes live music, games, snacks, and the chance to buy official Turkey Trot merchandise in preparation for race day. Racers also will be able to pick up their T-shirts and race numbers. Its a community event, Rogers said. Wednesday night is like Homecoming. We provide free food and drinks, and people come out and sign up for Turkey Trot. We get college kids who come home for the holidays and they meet either at Turkey Trot or the day before. They can meet up with friends who they wouldnt otherwise have time to see. The race began in 1978 at Howard Park in Tarpon Springs and was on a Saturday and run by the YMCA. The director was from Buffalo, N.Y. He said, We do it on Thanksgiving morning, Rogers said. We kind of looked at him like he was nuts. But we moved it to Thanksgiving morning and we had 999 people who were at the race. And its naturally grown from that. Last year we had a record of 17,678 who ran it. The Clearwater Challenge is the newest addition to the race, which was added last year, Rogers said. A number of competitors already were doing it and nicknamed it the Turk-Can-Do, he said, and they asked if it could be made official. I interviewed a lot of people last year who were doing the challenge, and their interpretation was that it was a challenge, Rogers said. Those runners could easily do any one of the races, but doing all three is an extra challenge, especially since there is about a half mile from the finish line back to the start of the course and having to make it back there in time for the next race to begin. So in all, the runners are completing about 11.3 miles. The proceeds from the race benefit local charities, including the West Florida Y Runners Club Scholarship programs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Pinellas County and the Childrens Heart Foundation. Last year, $48,000 was given out in 24 $2,000 scholarships, and about another $100,000 was given to local charities, Rogers said. People are encouraged to also bring canned goods and nonperishable food items on race day to donate to the RCS Food Bank. People are encouraged to arrive at least an hour before the race because parking gets tight. Spectators and racers should not stand or walk on neighbors yards and instead should use the sidewalks. Competitors should line up according to speed, with the fastest runners at the front, the slowest and walkers in the back. Noncompetitive wheelchair participants should also start at the back of the crowd, and animals, bicycles, wagons, roller blades and skates are not allowed on the course. There will be one water station in the Wingding and three water stations in the Turkey Trot course. At the end, there will be free refreshments for all registered participants. Medical personnel at a medical tent also will be at the finish line. The first three male and female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot races in the Open, Master and Grand Master levels will receive trophies. The Master level is for people age 40 and older, and the Grand Master level is for people ages 50 and older. In the Gobbler race, the first-place male and female winners will receive trophies. Additionally, the first 125 male and 125 female finishers in the Wingding and Turkey Trot will receive top finisher awards. People must be present to collect their awards, as they will not be mailed. The city of Clearwater is one of the major sponsors, and theyre very supportive of it and very happy, Rogers said. As far as demographics, it brings anywhere from 6-month-old kids to 90-yearolds doing it. Its probably one of the biggest events in Clearwater. At last count, Rogers said there are registered runners from everywhere, including Alaska, Washington, D.C., California, the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Canada.

He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with The Byrds.

According to McGuinns bio, provided by Skyline Music, the innovative guitarist was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scene when he co-founded The Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Prior to forming the Byrds, McGuinn toured and performed folk music with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player. He was also the musical director and guitarist on Judy Collins #3. McGuinn, a Chicago native, studied at the Old Town School of Folk Music and was active on Chicagos folk scene, where he was strongly influenced as a teenager by Bob Gibson. Within a few weeks of finishing high school, McGuinn was working with the Limeliters in California, playing guitar and banjo on their album Tonight: In Person. McGuinn is also on the Chad Mitchell Trios albums Mighty Day on Campus and The Chad Mitchell Trio at the Bitter End. After touring with singer Bobby Darin, McGuinn moved to New York at Darins request to work for his publishing company, TM Music, in the fabled Brill Building as a songwriter. He and Frank Gari co wrote the song Beach Ball and performed it with Darin, as the City Surfers in July 1963. After hearing the Beatles for the first time at the Brill Building, McGuinn began playing folk songs to a rock beat in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village.

Mandolin player Chris Hillman was asked to join the group and to learn how to play the bass guitar. During a Thanksgiving dinner the band settled on the name Byrds, and success was just around the corner. Columbia Records signed the Byrds in January 1965 and they recorded their first No. 1 hit, Mr. Tambourine Man. In 1968 McGuinn and Hillman hired Gram Parsons and headed for Nashville where they recorded the now critically acclaimed Sweetheart of the Rodeo. McGuinn disbanded the Byrds in 1973 to pursue his dream of a solo career. He made five solo albums on Columbia Records. McGuinn rejoined Gene Clark and Chris Hillman in 1978 on Capitol Records for three albums. In 1981 McGuinn decided it was time to return to his folk roots and began touring solo acoustic. Arista records released Back From Rio in 1991, a rock album that included his friends, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Elvis Costello, Chris Hillman, David Crosby, Michael Penn and John Jorgensen. After touring extensively to support the album he returned to his roots folk music. In November 1995, McGuinn began recording and uploading to the Internet a series of traditional folk songs to his website. The recordings are available for free download at the FOLK DEN section of McGuinns official website mcguinn.com. The autobiographical one-man show, Live from Mars, was released on Hollywood Records in November of 1996. The album includes two studio tracks, May The Road Rise To Meet You, and Fireworks, recorded in Minneapolis with members of the Jayhawks. McGuinns next CD was recorded on Appleseed Recordings, titled Treasures From The Folk Den. The CD offered favorite songs from the Folk Den with the added bonus of duets with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Odetta, Jean Ritchie, Josh White Jr. and Frank and Mary Hamilton. It was nominated for a Grammy in 2002 in the category of Best Traditional Folk Album. On April 1, 2004 McGuinn released a CD, which he called Limited Edition because he sold it only via the Internet and at his live performances. Limited Edition is an eclectic blend of rock and roll, traditional folk music, new compositions and hip-hop. In 2011, McGuinn released CCD. According to the album notes, CCD reflects McGuinns love of sea shanties. His intricate finger work on various stringed instruments and the haunting quality of his Irish heritage vocal style will take the listener back to the days when mighty sailing ships explored the seas from the Kamchatka Bay to the Greenland whaling fisheries. The CD is wrapped in an eight-panel package that compliments the music. Along with photos of the ocean and three sailing ships, each song is briefly explained, enabling listeners to enjoy the intricate and historical lyrics as their feet tap to the rhyme of the waves. McGuinn was reportedly honored to be able to do a small part in preserving these songs of the sea on this CD. Following the release of CCD, McGuinn was asked what he thought his legacy would be. His response was not what one might expect The Byrds. Instead, McGuinn said he hoped to be remembered for using the modern age of technology to help keep the songs of old from vanishing in the wind.Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project to present Longtime CompanionST. PETERSBURG As a prelude to Worlds Aids Day, the Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project will present a staged play reading of Craig Lucas screenplay Longtime Companion on Monday, Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m., at American Stage Theatre, 163 Third St. N. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Admission is pay-whatyou-will at the door. Advance purchase tickets are available for $15 each. A cash bar will be available. For information, call 823-7529 or www.americanstage.org. The production stars Katherine Michelle Tanner, Chris Crawford, Steve Garland, Brian Shea, Vincent Stalba, Drew DeCaro, Larry Alexander, Joey Panek, Jim Sorenson, Chris Jackson, Jonelle Marie Meyer and Daniel Harris. Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder, the audience watches the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of the protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry the audience from the it-couldnt-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on everyones lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as Longtime Companions of the deceased. By special permission from Craig Lucas, this one-night-only performance will benefit People with AIDS programs at Metropolitan Charities of Pinellas. The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness, provide assistance, and perpetuate a life of dignity for those affected and infected by HIV and AIDS. To learn more about The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project, call Garry Allan Breul at 941-758-6399 or garallan@msn.com. LCC, from page 1B Discover Bermuda known as the jewel of the AtlanticWhat has pink sand and is only 650 miles from the USA? If you said Bermuda, you are correct. This island known as the jewel of the Atlantic is actually 181 islands and rocks. Due east of South Carolina, and with 75 miles of coastline, this 21-square-miles of paradise has much for you to explore. Discovered by Juan de Bermdez in 1505, this uninhabited island became a British colony by accident. In 1609 the Sea Venture bound for Jamestown was shipwrecked in a storm off the eastern coast. Sir George Somers and his entire crew miraculously survived, making the shipwreck the first colony on the island. In 1612 the Virginia Company surrendered the island to the Crown, making it Britains oldest colony. Have no doubts; this is a British colony. The influence is everywhere. Come and see why some folks tell you that Bermuda is more British than Britain is. Bermuda shorts are everyday wear. From policemen directing traffic, to businessmen dressed in business jackets and shorts, you soon are accustomed to seeing them everywhere. St. Georges was the first capital of the island before it was moved to Hamilton in 1815. This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts a protected harbor. Enjoy a taste of history with centuries old lanes, alleyways and unique cottages. Nearby Tobacco Bay is popular for snorkeling and is a destination for many visitors. It is easily reached by bus or from the ferry terminal. The Crystal and Fantasy Caves are a surprise and include a 55-foot deep lake in one of the chambers. Hamilton was purpose-built to be central to most islanders. Thriving from day one it is Bermudas hub of international and local business and is an offshore financial center. It is packed with historic buildings, churches, shops, museums, galleries, alleys, parks and gardens; all constructed on a beautiful natural harbor. Gibbs Hill Lighthouse was built in 1844 and is the oldest cast iron lighthouse in the world. The Navy Dockyards are a short ferry or bus ride from Hamilton and offers shopping, museums, dining and a historical perspective of the island. Built by the British Navy in 1809, it played a role in the war of 1812. During World War II the USA also had a navy base here and both bases were closed in 1995. For golfers there are nine courses, offering stunning views and challenges. The most popular are Belmont Hills Golf & Country Club, Fairmont Southampton Golf Club and Port Royal Golf Course; one of the greatest public courses in the world. Yes, the sand is pink. A combination of crushed coral, calcium carbonate and shells are what create the color. The most famous beaches are Horseshoe Bay and Elbow Beach although there are several more. The offshore waters are a paradise for snorkeling and diving. You can visit Bermuda either by air or by cruise ship. Flights from Florida take six hours. Accommodation and food tend to be on the pricier side, so visiting by cruise ship makes a lot of sense. You cannot rent a car but you can rent a scooter. Beware though, as driving on the left side of the road with traffic circles can be confusing. The public transit system is incredibly reliable. Come visit any month of the year, although May through October is popular. The warmest time is July and August (86 degrees) and the coolest is January and February (58 degrees)Scene from the Road is contributed by Enrico (Rick) Saltarelli the owner of Salty Breeze Cruise Planners. He can be reached at 290-4998 or esaltare lli@cruise planners.com. Scene From the RoadRick Saltarelli Photo courtesy of SKYLINE MUSICRoger McGuinn performs Nov. 22 at Largo Cultural Center. New Century presents Don Giovanni TARPON SPRINGS New Century Opera will present Mozarts Don Giovanni Friday through Sunday, Dec. 6-8, at Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center, 324 Pine St. Performances will be Friday, 7 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets are $24 and $20 for students and members. Call 942-5605 or visit TarponArts.org. The opera is sung in English. Director Constantine Grame brings the New Century Opera production to the stage. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Don Giovanni explores the Spanish legend of Don Juan, the worlds most notorious womanizer. Don Giovanni is the second of the three great operas Mozart wrote in collaboration with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte. The opera, the most famous telling of Don Juan, is host to some of Mozarts most genius melodies: the famous duet L ci darem la mano and Don Giovannis heart-melting serenade, Deh vieni alla finestra. The cast features Christopher Holloway as Don Giovanni, Chris Romeo as Don Ottavio, Kevin Nickorick as Leporello, John Short as The Commandant and Masetto, Linda L. Hines as Donna Anna, Rachael Marino as Donna Elvira and Megan Schmidt as Zerlina.

How I Live Now takes a tale of teenage romance and plants in the middle of World War III. How I Live Now blends themes of love, loss and familial accountability with a bleak dystopian near-future scenario. Daisy, a neurotic American teenager, is sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside by a father who doesnt seem to want to deal with her. She is initially portrayed as highly unlikable: She is bratty, self-obsessed and impolite. Her attitude toward her cousins Piper, Isaac and Eddie ranges from indifferent to belligerent. Gradually, however, she begins to let down her defenses. She discovers her deceased mother spent time at the home and that she even slept in the same room where Daisy is staying. More importantly, she finds a kindred spirit in her cousin Eddie. The two fall in love. That aspect of the story may be off-putting to some. Love stories between first cousins are controversial. In production notes provided by Magnolia Pictures, Saoirse Ronan makes the case that the relationship is more compelling. I think its stronger and almost more romantic that they are cousins, Ronan says. It makes their connection stronger. She tries to go against it because she knows it defies convention but its a lot more interesting than, Daisy goes to summer camp and meets this dude. Everything is against them but the fact that he understands her better than she does and figures her out straight away gives her such an attraction to him. Even as the romance blossoms in How I Live Now, the couples idyllic summer days are punctuated with increasingly alarming news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. The mood changes drastically when an unnamed enemy detonates a nuclear device in London, killing thousands and spreading fallout across the countryside. England is dragged into the conflict and martial law ensues. The family is forcibly separated by the British military, with the boys, Eddie and Isaac, conscripted into the army and the girls, Daisy and Piper, recruited as farm laborers. The remainder of the film depicts how Daisy takes responsibility for her 10-year-old cousin Piper and struggles to survive and find a way back to the house in the English countryside where she hopes to find Eddie. How I Live Now brings to mind some of the more notable World War III movies of the 1980s, including World War III, Testament, The Day After, Threads and the animated When the Wind Blows. Like these movies, How I Live Now delivers numerous sequences highlighting the brutality of war with startling realism. Most striking is a scene in which Daisy picks through a pile of corpses to see if either of her cousins is among the dead. Unlike its predecessors, How I Live Now shrewdly keeps the identities of its combatants a mystery. In the 1980s, the backstory of such films generally pitted the United States against the Soviet Union. Since the end of the Cold War, the likelihood of that showdown has greatly diminished and the threat of a global conflict has shifted to other potential adversaries. Because How I Live Now is seen through the eyes of its teenage protagonist, it is fitting that the political elements are downplayed in the film. Ronan gives a solid performance as Daisy. She has screen chemistry with her costar, George MacKay, but it is her rapport with Daisys young cousin Piper that is truly transfixing. For Eddie, MacKay employs the strong-and-silent template, serving up an appealingly provincial persona. Harley Bird plays Piper with stunning depth and range. Tom Holland is equally gifted as Isaac, who seems the only welladjusted member of the family from the onset. The film is based on Meg Rosoffs novel of the same name, first published in 2004. It earned a number of prestigious literary awards, including the Guardian Childrens Fiction Prize. The book is written entirely in the voice of its heroine. The filmmakers, including director Kevin Macdonald, manage to replicate Daisys internal monologue in a series of well-placed scenes. A tale of endurance and survival, How I Live Now is oddly mesmerizing. Featuring exceptional performances from its young cast, led by Ronan, and bolstered by striking cinematography and a vivid sense of dystopian anxiety, Macdonalds adaptation of Rosoffs novel is a modern coming-of-age story with emotional impact.
