By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Every week, the city of Largo receives three to five requests from property owners who want to join the city, agreeing to pay its taxes in exchange for the extra services it provides. The requests come without any advertising from the city or any active attempt to extend its boundaries, said Teresa Brydon, the citys economic development manager. Its a good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless: the city currently has a backlog of 240 annexation agreements for properties waiting to be added to the tax roll. We have a lot of people that want to be a part of us, the city of Largo. Its a reasonable assumption that we want to be bringing them in, Brydon said. Given budget constraints, the city doesnt have a dedicated staff person to handle the issue. But during the Jan. 14 work session, Brydons twoperson department committed to tackling what she called the beast to try to get ahead of the curve in the upcoming year. Largo commissioners suggested she solicit the help of other city staff, an intern or a temporary hire to complete the project.Dont let us be the hold up, Commissioner Woody Brown said. Well do whatever needs to be done, I think.The city may schedule extra hearings solely to authorize the ordinances needed to annex the properties, but not until May or June, Brydon said. Each property thats not adjacent to another needs its own annexation ordinance, which must be read by the city clerk during two public hearings.

The current U.S. 19 construction project from north of Whitney Road to State Road 60 in Clearwater has a new estimated completion date October of this year instead of the summer of 2015. Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. Jack Latvala and Ananth Prasad, Florida Department of Transportation secretary, announced that the project had been accelerated Jan. 10 during a meeting at the Embassy Mobile Home Park, 16416 U.S. 19 in Clearwater. Thanks to Sen. Latvala and families in the region, Im proud to announce that FDOT has formed an agreement with the contractor to accelerate work to get everyone off these service roads sooner, Scott said in a press release. The cost to accelerate the project is $4.8 million. When complete, the 2.7-mile project, which began in November 2009 with an estimated cost of $113.5 million, will allow for uninterrupted travel from 49th Street to Sunset Point Road, according to FDOTs project description. Project plans calls for removing traffic signals and replacing them with interchanges at Seville Boulevard and Belleair Road. Frontage roads will provide access to businesses with improvements to the interchange at State Road 60 to improve traffic flow. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO With the widening of Ulmerton Road around Largo Mall and the busy Seminole Boulevard intersection completed last month, the Florida Department of Transportation is working on the final two portions of the project. The roadway starting at 119th Street just before Ulmerton turns south to meet up with Walsingham Road, and extending until the Seminole Bypass Canal, right before the railroad, was completed Dec. 23. The widening of the road to three lanes in each direction was a $16.9 million project. The project included additional turn lanes for the two major intersections in the area, namely that of Seminole Boulevard and Ridge Road. Additionally, the roads traffic poles and signals at those intersections, along with the ones at 101st Street and the Largo Mall entrance, are now hurricane resistant. Medians also were altered. They were closed complete at Palm Avenue, Block Drive, 10th Street Southwest and the west entrance to Lowes. Full median openings were changed to left-turn-only medians at the entrance into Oak Ridge A memorial of fitness Photo by JULIANA A.

4A Leader, January 16, 2014This project improves the safety of the traveling public, reduces travel time by eliminating congestion and separates local traffic from through traffic by including frontage roads, Prasad said. In the summer of 2013, the contractor began construction of the main roadway lanes from south of Harn Boulevard to Whitney Road. Plans called for completion of southbound bridges and approaches for use by northbound and southbound traffic by early 2014. Construction on the northbound bridge over Seville Boulevard was next, followed by removal of the old bridge over State Road 60. In the spring of this year, plans called for the contractor to begin construction on the northbound bridge and approach with completion of the bridge over Belleair Road and Allens Creek slated for completion by summer. The entire project was to be finished by summer of 2015. Accelerating the U.S. 19 project will not only benefit the business community, but it also will help the motorists who travel this corridor every day, Latvala said, giving credit for fast tracking the project to Scott, FDOT and the contractor, Hubbard Construction. New plans call for the contractor to shift traffic to a free flow configuration by Oct. 15, Scott said. All signals on U.S. 19 within the project area will be removed, creating a signal-free corridor between Republic Drive/Hammock Park Boulevard in Clearwater to Mainlands Boulevard in Pinellas Park. Pinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel reacted favorably to the governors announcement. I am very pleased with the news that U.S. 19s construction will be accelerated, Seel said in an email Sunday afternoon. Seel has long been a champion for improvements to U.S. 19. She chaired the U.S. 19 Task Force, which put forth a list of recommendaApartments, the east entrance into Lowes, the west entrance into Pinellas County Sheriffs Department, at 117th Street, at Railroad Avenue and at the Ridge Road west of 113th Street. Pepper Contracting Services was the states contractor for the project, which began in 2011.Construction moves eastConstruction has already begun on the next two miles of the road from the canal until El Centro/Ranchero Boulevard, a few blocks east of Belcher Road. The Florida Department of Transportation hired Conalvias USA for the $21.5 million job, slated for completion in late 2015. The contractor on this project is working on finishing the widening on the south side of the job, department spokeswoman Kris Carson explained in an email. When the south side is complete, traffic will be shifted to the south side and then the widening on the north side will start. The south side of the road will be completed in a few months, she added. Both sides will each gain an extra lane, making the road six lanes wide and reducing traffic congestion in the area. The project includes hurricane-resistance upgrades for traffic signals and poles at Starkey Road, Tall Pines Drive, Belcher Road and replacements for the emergency signals at Rosetree Lane. Eventually, the project will entail median closures at Washington Avenue, Center Avenue, Clay Avenue, Southwind Lane, 90th Road, Fountain Way, 34th Way and Cumberland Drive. Medians will be altered to prevent left turns onto eastbound Ulmerton from Cheryl Road, Coral Way and Monterey Lakes and onto westbound Ulmerton from 93rd Street and Rosetree Plaza. Construction is scheduled primarily during the day, with additional lane closures permitted between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. The final projectThe final portion of the widening project is already underway on the east side from 38th Street, just past the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport, to the on-ramp to Interstate 275. The $20.5 million price tag covers widening Ulmerton Road to six total lanes and widening Roosevelt Boulevard, between 28th Avenue and Ulmerton Road, to three lanes in each direction. The construction, contracted to Lane Construction Corporation, also includes replacing the Roosevelt Boulevard bridge over Ulmerton. The contractor is working on the bridge deck pours on the new bridge, Carson wrote. The department estimates that traffic will be switched to the new bridge in either late summer or early fall of this year. Work also is starting on widening 34th Street,Developer withdraws application to rezone Tides property By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Developer Taylor Morrison twithdrew its application with Pinellas County to rezone the Tides Golf Club for residential development. The property, 11832 66th Ave. N., is located in an unincorporated part of the County along Boca Ciega Bay. The homebuilder withdrew its proposal to build up to 170 singleand multi-family homes on nearly 96 acres just two days before the Jan. 9 Local Planning Agency meeting, the first of several hearings the county would have held while considering the plan. Just days earlier, a County staff report recommended that the rezoning request be denied because the proposed development was inconsistent with the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan, particularly with the plans policies regarding open space. In a built-out county it is difficult to compensate for such a sizeable loss should these lands be developed, staff wrote in the report. The economic, environmental, and community (social and quality of life) consequences of conversion of open space to developed uses are at the center of its recommendation to deny the proposed development. Taylor Morrisons plan designated 18 acres for open space. Once that space is gone, its gone and its not coming back, said William Kimpton, the Dunedin-based attorney who represents Save the Tides, a group of citizens who were opposed to the proposed development. Kimpton expressed his surprise that Taylor Morrison withdrew its application just days prior to when the hearings were supposed to begin. We prepared for a very long battle and the battle went away, he said. Ed Methfessel, president of Save the Tides, said that because of public opposition to the project and the staffs recommendation, Im sure the homebuilder recognized it wouldnt get approved. He added, Its really great news. Losing the Tides would have affected quality of life in the area, he said. They wanted to take away something that made Pinellas County great and made Seminole magical. But at the end of the day, [the County staff] stayed true to following the comprehensive plan and protecting green space. Ed Armstrong, a Clearwater attorney representing Taylor Morrison, declined to comment on the matter. Save the Tides formed at the end of 2012 when Tides neighbors began noticing surveyors on the property. As rumors swirled, Methfessel called the County and learned that Taylor Morrison had submitted a proposal to rezone the parcel. Tides, which still operates as a golf course, is currently bank-owned, after Wells Fargo took over ownership of the land when it purchased Wachovia and then foreclosed on the property in 2009. At the time, Wells Fargo still owed about $6.8 million on the mortgage, said Ron Stephens of Save the Tides. The organization, opposed to the proposed zoning and land use changes, sprung to action. More than 10,000 people signed a petition circulated by the group and Methfessel said he was expecting between 400 and 500 activists to attend the Jan. 9 meeting if it were to go forward. One of Save the Tides primary concerns is that the development would have increased density in an already highly populated area. Pinellas is the most densely populated and second smallest county in the state. The group also was concerned about conservation. The Tides property makes up 20 percent of recreational open space for the Countys District 9, Kimpton said. The parcel, which serves as a buffer to Boca Ciega Millennium Park, is a great natural aquifer and is also home to many different types of wildlife, Methfessel said. Ive even seen bald eagles nest there occasionally, he added. The fight to save the Tides isnt over. Just because Taylor Morrison has backed away from the property doesnt mean another developer wont step in, Kimpton said. Thats why we want a permanent solution for preserving this space, he said, so future generations dont have to go through what we have. Kimpton said hes proposing that the County create a special district for the Tides land. He submitted a letter outlining his proposal and plans to meet with representatives from the County soon. His hopes are that the local community will be able to purchase the property from the bank, with the help of the County government, to preserve the green space. According to the staff report, there are 5,318 privately owned recreation sites in Pinellas; 5,017 of these acres are golf and country clubs. As the economy ebbs and flows, these properties could eventually find themselves for sale, Kimpton said, reflecting the different interests and needs of the people. There may be too many golf courses. Are we going to be able to preserve them all? He added, The Tides is really the perfect case to have this debate. Thats why were going to go forward with additional steps to try to preserve this land for the future.

Developer Taylor Morrison withdrew its application to rezone the property for residential development two days before the Local Planning Agencys first hearing on the proposal. ANNEXATION, from page 1Aprocess for the ordinances takes about 45 days.Brydon said she saw the benefit of getting the annexations all cleaned up. She wasnt in favor of putting a hold on new annexation agreements until the backlog was cleared, as Commissioner Michael Smith suggested. I think we need to continue that to show that we are a friendly city, she said. If we were to tackle this and get this under our belt, then bringing in annexation agreements in the future will be a simple process. The city has been treading water on annexations since the backlog was first brought to the commissioners attention in March, fluctuating right around 340 eligible annexation agreements despite completing numerous annexations in the last year. Of the 340 annexation agreements currently eligible, 125 are on hold because they are within a county community development district of some sort, leaving 215 for the city to tackle in the coming months. The city also has 36 single-parcel and eight multiple-parcel properties that have a sewer indenture agreement with the city, which grants residents use of Largos sewer system but nothing else. Eighteen of those properties are eligible to join the city, including four multifamily properties that account for 143 residential parcels. Last month, the county drafted an interlocal agreement to resolve Type A enclaves, unincorporated areas that are surrounded on all sides by a single municipality. Should Largo, the county and the other eight cities involved approve the agreement, Largo would be able to annex another 44 properties that are in a Type a enclave but arent contiguous to current city boundaries. Largo commissioners will be considering an ordinance to approve the agreement in the next few months. To help prevent a future backlog, the city will be eliminating some of the financial incentive residents have to sign annexation agreements, especially when it will be a while until the properties are eligible to join the city. Under new annexation agreements, residents wont receive a waiver of a 25 percent surcharge until they are annexed in or become continuous to a municipal boundary. Per the commissions previous direction, annexation agreements that are outside the citys planning service area have been canceled, Brydon said. The commission also agreed with staffs recommendation for a consultant who would examine the fiscal impacts of annexing even more properties within the planning service area. The city has an additional 700 annexation agreements on properties that are not contiguous with city boundaries and cant be annexed in right away, Brydon said. There is a greater percentage that are still outside that we havent touched, she said. Such a study which would analyze if the city would need to hire more police officers, for example could cost between $50,000 to $75,000, said Community Development Director Carol Stricklin. During the Jan. 15 meeting, the commission also: Agreed to hire Water Company of America to review the citys utility billing; the company is paid 46 percent of any revenues it discovers are not being paid to the city for three years worth of billings after the mistake is identified Gave suggestions for changes to the charter review committee, much of which involved clarifications of language Discussed the merits of enacting term limits within the charter, but ultimately discarded the idea tions in 2000 to improve the roadway. Many of those recommendations were added to FDOTs work list, including current projects, such as the one from Whitney Road to State Road 60. However, she acknowledges that the work has been an inconvenience for many, which is why acceleration of the project is so important. Our citizens and businesses have endured this construction far too long, Seel said. We look forward to the completion of U.S. 19 for safety and traffic reasons. Yeah!Photo courtesy of FDOTA U.S. 19 construction project from north of Whitney Road to State Road 60 in Clearwater is expected to be finished by October, months ahead of the original completion date of the summer of 2015. FAST TRACK, from page 1A just east of Roosevelt Boulevard, Carson added. The project includes adding sidewalks to the north side of the road, where there are none, and replacing the sidewalks on the south side, between 34th and 38th streets and between Egret Boulevard and Mercury Insurance. The medians at this portion of Ulmerton will be altered: closing the opening at 35th Street and changing all the openings at the east end of the road to directional openings. FDOT advises that detours will be necessary to complete the project, though lane closures will occur mainly at night. The project, which will bring the entire length of Ulmerton Road to three lanes each way, is scheduled to be completed in spring 2016.Photo by JULIANA A.

Sale of Belleview Biltmore Hotel could be pending By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR The Belleview Biltmore Hotel soon may be under new ownership. Details of the sale are nearly finalized and the closing date will be Friday, Jan. 24, said a source, who asked not to be identified. While the prospective new owners of the hotel have not been identified, the source has indicated it is a Real Estate Investment Trust, which are companies that are interested in developing property, not in preserving historic properties. Ed Armstrong, the Clearwater Attorney who represents the current owners of the hotel, the Ades brothers of Miami, all but confirmed the sale is pending. I cannot say much, he said. There is potentially a closing date pending, it depends on how things play out, nothing is set in stone yet. When interviewed on Jan. 13, Armstrong said things should be clearer in 10 days, which would be on or around Jan. 24. I think the situation will be clarified in the next 10 days or so, he said. It will be more real, much more real in 10 days. Armstrong, who confirmed he is part of the negotiations, would not confirm the possibility of a REIT becoming the new owner of the property, but said that the current talks do not involve preserving the hotel. The intended use of the property would be residential, he said. When asked if Miami area architect Richard Heisenbottle was the person involved in the talks, Armstrong was quick and to the point. No he is not, he said. Back in April 2012 Heisenbottle and two partners appeared before the Belleair Commission and outlined plans to buy the hotel and refurbish it to save it from the wrecking ball. Since then difficulty in raising the estimated $200 million for the project stalled his bid. All along he has said he was confident that the money could be raised given enough time. Now it appears time has run out and he isnt happy. Well be hugely disappointed if after taking it this far were not able to bring it to closing, he said. Ive put more effort into this project than anyone else by far. Frankly, Im devastated and feel it is unfortunate for the people of Belleair. The hotel was, and is, the identity of this town. Heisenbottle said he knew nothing about this latest development and potential sale and indicates that it might not be over yet. If it goes to a developer Ill obviously be very, very disappointed, he said. We were close to a deal and getting the financing for the entire property. We believe we are still hugely close and I continue to be in touch with Daniel (Ades). Word of the pending sale did not surprise Mayor Gary Katica. I said a long time ago that the Ades brothers are not developers so the fact that they might be selling the hotel to a developer doesnt surprise me, he said. Im sorry Heisenbottle isnt in the mix. They say the closing date is the 24th; at this point Ill believe it when I see it. Katica said he has no idea who the potential new buyers are, but hed been told they are developers. I get the feeling that were getting down to the end run stage, he said. Enough is enough. Youd love to see the hotel restored but you hate to see it just sitting there. It is not fair to the people of the RPD Photo by BRIAN GOFFThe Belleview Biltmore hotel might soon be sold. The hotel, which was built at the turn of the last century, has been closed since 2009.

As part of Targets ongoing forensic investigation, it has been determined that certain guest information separate from the payment card data previously disclosed was taken from Target, the company revealed in a press release posted at Target.com. This theft is not a new breach, but was uncovered as part of the ongoing investigation, company officials said. At this time, the investigation has determined that the stolen information includes names, mailing addresses, phone numbers or email addresses for up to 70 million individuals. Much of this data is partial in nature, but in cases where Target has an email address, we will attempt to contact affected guests. This communication will be informational, including tips to guard against consumer scams. Target will not ask those guests to provide any personal information as part of that communication. In addition, guests can find the tips at Target.com/databreach, along with updated information in the Data Breach FAQs to help answer questions and provide additional resources. I know that it is frustrating for our guests to learn that this information was taken and we are sorry they are having to endure this, said Gregg Steinhafel, chairman, president and chief executive officer. Our guests expect more from us and deserve better. And I want them to know that understanding and sharing the facts is important to me and the entire Target team. Guests will have zero liability for the cost of any fraudulent charges arising from the breach. To provide further peace of mind, Target is offering one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to all Target guests who shopped our U.S stores. Guests will have three months to enroll in the program.Online booking photos removedLARGO Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Jan. 9 that the Sheriffs Office has restructured the Whos In Jail page and eliminated the suspects booking photo from the record. The sheriffs decision to eliminate the photos was made due to the activities of several websites, including mugshots.com, justmugshots.com, and arrests.org, that have in recent years used the Sheriffs Office site to mine and post photos to their website; and then charge citizens exorbitantly high fees for their removal. After visiting mugshots.com myself I saw that citizens were being charged anywhere from $399 to $1,700 to remove their booking photos from just that one site I decided that it is more than a rip-off it is extortion, said the sheriff. The changes to the Whos In Jail page at www.pcsoweb.com will go live Monday, Jan. 13. Starting Jan. 13, online public access will be limited to the same inmate demographic information as in the past, however, there will be no photograph displayed, thereby eliminating the mug shots websites ability to mine the images in bulk. The Sheriffs Office will continue to honor individual public records requests regarding booking photos. According to the sheriff, A person may have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to go from site to site to remove these booking posts. A lot of these people have committed relatively minor crimes or made a bad decision. The reposting of their booking photo isnt illegal, but charging a fee to remove it is unconscionable, verging on blackmail and clearly taking advantage of someones circumstances. So we are doing our part to take away their ammunition. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office has allowed public access to the photographs of incarcerated subjects within the Pinellas County Jail via our Whos in Jail page since 2005. Understanding the investigative value of this site, and the needs for other law enforcement agencies to view and elicit inmate photograph; and in consideration that media entities that regularly work with the Sheriffs Office also will continue to need access to these photographs for purposes of their news stories, the Sheriffs Office has established a process by which their access will be maintained through an authorized members log-in area. Authorized Members (media entities and law enforcement agencies) may access the clean booking photographs in the following manner: Open the Whos In Jail page. Click on the Authorized Members link tab to logon Click request an account Fill out the application to include first and last name, company name, contact phone number and email address and click submit. You will receive an automatic email, providing a password for your initial access. You may then change your password. For more information, contact the Sheriffs Public Information Office at 582-6221. To report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873TIPS (8477) or submit a tip at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHospital to Home: The Importance of Transitional CareAfter a long or even a short hospital stay, anyone appreciates the value of sleeping in ones own bed. No one to wake you during the night, no more pokes, prods or beeps and buzzes. Just you snuggled up under your own covers within the familiar sights and smells of home. As wonderful as that sounds, there are a few things to consider regarding transitioning from a hospital back into the home. For many seniors, this process may be complicated depending on their circumstances.Seniors are of special concern during this phase, especially those who suffer medical conditions and are required to take different medications at varying times of the day. Sending someone from a care facility such as a hospital, where aroundthe-clock monitoring is prevalent, to an environment where little or no interaction occurs requires advance planning to ensure the transition is smooth and safe. Some things to consider include: The mobility of the senior Medical conditions that may need monitoring Administration of medicine(s) Future appointments with health care providers NutritionAttention needs to be given to the mobility of the person going home. Challenges in that area should be addressed and solved before less-mobile seniors arrive home. Ensure walkways in the home are clear. Remove trip hazards such as rugs. Rearrange extension cords so they are not a hazard. Handrails in the bathroom can prevent falls.Proper administration of medications is essential for seniors required to take them even for a short period of time. Sometimes, if multiple medicines are needed, seniors may need help remembering time schedules. Pill dispensers can be used for this purpose, as well, and are the best option for ultimate safety to keep medications organized and aid in preventing accidental overdose.Following the above tips can help pave the way to a positive transition from hospital to home. Successful transitions help eliminate returns to the hospital which are common when transitions are not well planned. If you are unable to assist a senior in need, now might be the time to hire a home health care provider, such as Comfort Keepers. Comfort Keepers attend to seniors in need on a full or part-time basis performing such duties as cooking, light cleaning, running errands and simply by providing company to keep the seniors spirits up.011614 011614 $799Haircut*Seminole Hair & Nails1250 Seminole Blvd., Largo727-582-9979*Mens & Senior Haircut.

There is little the town can do about the pending sale. It has no jurisdiction or power to stop a sales transaction between two private parties. It can, however, have some say in what goes on the property. Town Manager Micah Maxwell said there is a process that must be followed, particularly because the hotel is an historic property. The new owners would have to get a certificate of appropriateness first, he said. That would then allow them to get a demolition permit, but that cant happen without their presenting a site plan, and that must be approved by the commission. At the commission meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 21, commissioners are scheduled to vote on the proposed new zoning designation designed especially for the property. The new RM-10 designation would limit the number of units per acre to 10, but it would allow the height restriction of 32 feet be increased to 80 feet in some instances. Commissioners were told the new designation would allow a developer more freedom to diversify the type of townhouses or condominiums that can be built on the property. Residential Planned Development residents recently voted in favor of the new zoning designation but wanted to make sure that no more than 160 units would be built on the property and each would be a minimum of 15 hundred square feet. Before the sale of the hotel can be finalized the towns lien must be satisfied. There is an $83,000 lien on the property. It is the result of a $250 a day fine because of the deteriorating state of the hotel. At one point the fines totaled $250,000 but they were forgiven when the Ades brothers agreed to sell the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club to the town for $3.5 million.

Missouri Ave. and lunged at the clerk, according to Clearwater police. Largo patrol received a call on Jan. 8 that a man had brandished a large kitchen knife at the CVS at 2390 Belcher Road. He lunged at the clerk before reaching into the drawer and grabbing money, police said. The suspect was seen running to and leaving in a maroon Dodge pickup truck. His description matched that of the suspect in Clearwaters two cases. The Clearwater Police Department had a solid tip/lead from Collins wife, who said she thought her husband was the suspect in their robberies, Largo Detective Jill Freire wrote in a citywide email. Further, the wife said her husband had mentioned committing suicide by cop, Freire explained. The special operations units from both departments got involved Jan. 8. That afternoon, Clearwater detectives pinged Collins cellphone, which determined that he was in Largo. As detectives in Largo were alerted to his general location, another call for an armed robbery at the Largo Lowes, 11101 Ulmerton Road, came in. A suspect there robbed a clerk in the garden center at knifepoint before grabbing money and running back to his vehicle. Detectives began searching the area for the Dodge pickup truck identified in the former robberies. An undercover Clearwater detective found the truck and began following it, alerting both agencies to Collins location. The suspect spotted the police cars headed toward him and sped away as Clearwater officers tried to pull him over. He headed east on Palmetto Street, losing control of the truck east of Highland Avenue. The truck crashed into a power utility pole, flipped and landed in the backyard of a residence, destroying a fence. He continued to fight officers trying to arrest him, Largo police reported. He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg for injuries suffered in the crash. A passenger who was with him in the truck was not injured. Clearwater police found the machete, smaller knife and both shirts he wore in the Clearwater robberies in his truck. Clearwater police had matched a shirt worn by the suspect in the Jan. 7 robbery with one Collins was seen wearing in a photo he had posted on Facebook. Collins is charged with four counts of robbery with a deadly weapon as well as aggravated fleeing and eluding law enforcement, according to Pinellas County Jail records. Largo also charged him with burglary of an unoccupied structure and fraudulent use of a credit card.Help needed to find missing womanCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are asking for the publics assistance in locating a missing Clearwater woman. Roberta Rene Cable, 41, who goes by Rene has been missing since Dec. 14. Cable went missing after leaving her home on Owen Drive in Clearwater and has not had contact with friends or family. She was supposed to begin a new job on Dec. 16 and never showed up. Cable is a white female, 5 foot tall, weighing 115 pounds. She has hazel eyes and blonde hair. She was last seen wearing a yellow tank top, blue jeans and white tennis shoes. According to detectives, Renes disappearance is considered suspicious in nature. Anyone with information that may assist detectives in locating Rene Cable is urged to call Detective Jeff Capra with the Robbery/Homicide Unit at 582-6200 or to remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS or www.crimestoppersof pinellas.org.

Leader, January 16, 2014 Many reports tell us that the cost of living today is rising faster than it has in the past. Mortgage payments, left over from higher property values in Florida, are saddling many today. There are government programs available to those with high mortgage payments. Did you know that you may be able to reduce your mortgage payment to a more affordable level? I may be able to take advantage of one of these programs to reduce your mortgage payment to a level equal to 31percent of your income. In many situations these high mortgage payments, along with high credit card debt, can cause us to live outside of our means just to try to keep a steady lifestyle. One way that some deal with these rising costs is with short term high interest loans, which, in turn, can lead to even more problems trying to keep finances in order. There are better solutions to your problems, but it can take time to get your finances back under control. You will want to review your expenses, cutting any spending that is unnecessary and put it back into levels less than your total income. Try to manage short term finances closely. Sometimes your situation may be caused by circumstances out of your control. Maybe a loss of income due to job loss, illness or even the passing of a loved one can cause spiraling debt problems. In many cases a simple budget adjustment just wont help. You may need to seek advice about how to best deal with the debt in these situations. Sometimes the best solution to your problem may be a fresh start, but every situation is different. What may work for your neighbor might not work for you. Thats why I offer free consultations at any of my three offices located in Clearwater, Pinellas Park, or Tampa.

Suite 252 Clearwater Baby Boomers have begun reaching retirement age. For many, the retirement they anticipated is no longer a guarantee. Social Security probably won't meet their needs and most companies do not provide cushy pensions. "Baby Boomers are living longer, and in many cases caring for children, parents, and often even grandchildren," says Elizabeth (Liza, pronounced Lizza) Campa-Flanagan, Certified Financial Planner with Raymond James Financial Services Inc. Liza is keenly attuned to the financial climate. She is focused on providing an integrated advice platform for all clients. Financial Assessment According to Liza, Baby Boomers are in need of good financial advice in today's economic climate. She encourages Baby Boomers to begin by assessing their current situation. "The first thing I ask someone at or near retirement is if they know how much income they need their assets to generate once they retire," she explains. "Realistically determining the income your investments can generate and building in a buffer to preserve your retirement under difficult conditions takes considerable time and work." Part of building a retirement plan is articulating your priorities and goals for life in retirement. Many factors play a key role in a successful retirement plan, such as: Your income sources Your assets and anticipated expenses The rate at which you'll be able to spend in retirement "Having a plan and continuing to adjust it over time can help put you on the path to a comfortable retirement," Liza says. Make a Plan The next step in the process is making a plan. "First, make sure your retirement team is in place, starting with your financial advisor," Liza says. "Depending on your situation, the financial advisor may also act as your team's 'quarterback,' coordinating and working with family members, your CPA, an estate attorney, and insurance and trust professionals." Establishing priorities is an important part of the process. "The financial advisor can assist you in understanding factors that will impact your retirement plan, such as your retirement lifestyle, risk tolerance, retirement date, unknown risks and your desire to support your family members or a favorite charity." Managing Risks Every investment decision entails some sort of risk, Liza stresses. I work with my clients to identify the factors and risks most relevant to their situation and plan for them. Liza lists a number of factors and risks facing Baby Boomers, including: Longevity Baby Boomers may live 20 or 30 years after they retire. Inflation Inflation increases the cost of living, erodes the value of savings and reduces purchasing power. Spending and withdrawals Overspending can adversely affect how long your assets last. Market risks Market declines and the timing of these declines pose risks. Unknown risks Major health events, disability, long-term care needs and other unexpected occurrences can complicate a retirement plan. The Unexpected Many retirees underestimate how much theyll need to cover healthcare expenses, Liza says. Income from investments and Social Security can go toward paying ongoing medical costs, such as Medicare premiums, deductibles and copays, but as healthcare costs continue to rise, this could place a significant strain on your retirement, Liza says. I work with my clients to try to anticipate healthcare expenses in retirement and account for them within their overall retirement income plan. Additionally, widespread economic weakness and market fluctuations have taken a toll on many investors, including Baby Boomers. If you are at all concerned your retirement plan may no longer be sufficient to meet your needs, dont delay taking action, Liza says. While there are no magic fixes, a number of effective strategies do exist for potentially minimizing losses, generating additional income and planning for growth. Liza can help Baby Boomers: Plan for long-term care needs not covered by Medicare or other insurance Evaluate and/or reallocate 401K or other employer provided retirement plans Review income and expenses and examine the household budget Assess insurance coverage to ensure it is cost effective and appropriate for current needs Review and update beneficiary designations Allocate a portion or a greater portion of their portfolio to undervalued, growth-oriented investments Address lifetime income needs Hedge income against rising inflation with certain investment options. We can help you look at your retirement plan comprehensively, determine if you have any gaps, and help you identify ways to potentially minimize losses in order to stay on track in retirement, Liza says. Thus, with proper planning, retirement may still be an option for baby boomers.

The Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce is excited to welcome another Walmart Neighborhood Market to our community. New construction and new employment opportunities are always greatly appreciated, said Bob Clifford, president and CEO of the Clearwater Regional Chamber. Having the worldwide leader in retail business expanding its presence in our community sends a clear signal that Clearwater is a great place to live, work and play. We are pleased that Walmart has remained committed, both now and through the recession, to invest in our community, said Largo Mayor Patricia Gerard. We anticipate the new store will help grow and revitalize the Roosevelt and U.S. 19 corridor, and we look forward to its grand opening. The new Clearwater Neighborhood Market is approximately one-quarter the size of a Walmart Supercenter. It offers a full grocery department, including organic and natural selections.

One of the oldest Wendys in Pinellas County, the building was recently demolished and a new one, consistent with the companys current branding, will be constructed.Out with the old Price of postage stamps going upPinellas County residents might want to restock their supply of postage stamps before Jan. 26. The United States Postal Service is increasing the price of a First-Class Mail single-piece letter from 46 cents to 49 cents. The proposed changes are intended to generate $2 billion in incremental annual revenue for the Postal Service. Letters that weigh more than one ounce will cost a penny more per ounce and postcards also will cost a penny more with the price increasing to 34 cents. Letters, weighing one ounce or less, going to all international destinations will cost $1.15. Stamp prices have stayed consistent with the average annual rate of inflation of 4.2 percent since the Postal Service was formed in 1971, according to a press release. The Postal Service recorded a $15.9 billion net loss last fiscal year and expects to record a loss of roughly $6 billion in the current fiscal year, and has an intolerably low level of available liquidity even after defaulting on its obligation to make prefunding payments for retiree health benefits. A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation: 152 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. With more than 31,000 retail locations and the most frequently visited website in the federal government, usps.com, the Postal Service has annual revenue of more than $65 billion and delivers nearly 40 percent of the worlds mail.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Curtain rises on Downton AbbeyAlthough the BBC-PBS series Downton Abbey has entered only its fourth season, it seems to me its been around ever since Queen Victoria died. Its splendid story-telling, which is one big reason PBS has no shame in running each episode about 20 times. This allows you and me to keep from losing track of the plot and characters. It also allows PBS to frequently interrupt each episode and beg for money, and thus keep giving the world topquality programs. If youre not familiar with DA (as Im sure show-biz folks call it) please be assured I wont try to spell out complete details of the goings-on. They are too complex to be captured in any column less than 10,000 words long. A capsule outline might go this way: Downton Abbey is a 1,000-acre West Berkshire spread whose center is a threeor four-story mansion topped by dozens of prickly spires. Inside this English fortress are a married couple named Robert and Cora Crawley. They have three daughters and several layers of servants whose duties and status rankings would make a Pentagon organizational chart seem like a childs scrawlings. Ownership and control of the premises depends on who is married to whom, and for how long, provided none of the main characters are killed off in war, childbirth or traffic accidents. The Crawley parents want their daughters to find suitable husbands. Of course they do. If youve read much British fiction you already know that spouse-hunting was the chief activity of the upper-classes from the Battle of Hastings until the end of World War II. But the daughters have minds of their own, and therein lie many of DAs primary plot lines. One daughter, Mary, dares to do a quick roll in the hay with a visiting Turkish diplomat, who immediately collapses and died. This left Mary vulnerable to later blackmail threats. Her sister Sybil ventures into the new world of womens rights. The third sister, Edith, wants to find the right guy, but keeps getting dumped. Other complications arise from war with Germany, battle wounds, Spanish flu, death from childbirth, and financial disaster when Robert Crawleys investments in railroads go off the tracks. His wife Cora has a miscarriage resulting from her slip on a bar of soap, strategically placed by a vengeful servant, Mrs. OBrien. Sweetness and light, tinged with acid, stream out of the Abbeys several hundred windows. DAs talented creator and sole scriptwriter, Julian Fellowes, promises to churn out at least a fifth season, and wont say how many more might follow. Perhaps our grandchildren will slip into adulthood enjoying DA as much as todays fans do. Fellowes has caught flak from several directions because of his abrupt killing off of some major cast members. His defense, in some cases: he had to do it because the actors suddenly quit or their contracts ran out. For many viewers, part of the fun is figuring out the pecking order of the servants. Some work upstairs, some downstairs (a la the similar TV series of many years ago.) As a servant climbs the slippery status pole, he/she seems to grow increasingly protective of his/her position. The DA staff contains many more women than men, which should imply pleasant pickings for the men. Except that some of the male servants are gay. This is one TV series that demands viewers pay extra close attention, just to keep track of whos knifing (or shagging) whom. The DA story opened just before the start of World War I, when British society was still highly structured into a few socio-economic classes, and everyone was expected to stay in the level he/she was born into. But then a few million young men were killed in the War to End All Wars. Women won the right to vote. Labor unions grew stronger. Nazi Germany began to make threatening noises. Telephones and electric food mixers invaded homes. Housemaids and hod carriers began to find employment as secretaries and skilled factory workers. As DA leads its viewers through all these changes, you feel like a passenger in a gilded, drama-filled time machine. Like most BBC productions, the writing and acting of Downton Abbey are superb. You dont have to be an Anglophile to appreciate DA. But it will help if, like me, you are fed up with the obscenities, explosions, gunfights and curbstone grammar that dominate so many of American movies and TV shows. DA illustrates a culture that is long dead. But its delightful to see it resurrected again on our TV screens, if only for a few hours each year.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Behind the erosion of public trust If you robbed a bank and got caught, you would go to jail. If you waited in the getaway car while your cohort robbed the bank, you would go to jail as an accomplice, right? Of course you would. Thats what the law mandates. So how come, after a bank stands mute as customers are robbed, do they get deferred prosecution? I ask these questions after this weeks decision by the feds to merely fine JPMorgan Chase for failing to report their very real suspicions about mega-fraudster Bernard Madoff. No criminal charges, no one is held responsible and faces jail time just $2.5 billion in fines and penalties for an organization that experts say will likely make as much as $23 billion in profit this year. Under the settlement agreement, announced by the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, any criminal charges were deferred for two years and maybe forever if the bank keeps its nose clean. All JPMorgan had to do was admit its bad conduct, pay the fine and agree to strengthen its anti-money laundering policies. JPMorgan immediately issued a statement saying, We recognize we could have done a better job pulling together various pieces of information and concerns about Madoff from different parts of the bank. Really? Pulitzer Prize-winning business reporter Michael Hiltzik, writing in the Los Angeles Times, declared the JPMorgan admission, Resembles hay after its been passed through the digestive system of a horse. Hiltzik also believes JPMorgan has re-written the history of what it knew about Madoffs criminal practices and when they knew it. JPMorgan, where Madoff kept his major bank accounts and which profited handsomely off its relationship in numerous ways, knew Madoff was crooked. Bank executives had him figured out ... early, Hiltzik wrote. Look, I dont know much about high finance, but lets review some facts about what JPMorgan did and didnt do after it had reason to believe Madoff was a conman of mammoth proportions. Keep in mind the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 requires banks to file whats called suspicious activity reports with federal regulators if they think a customer is dealing in ill-gotten gains. JPMorgan consistently stayed mum about its Madoff concerns, and under the law, that is a felony. In October 2008, the banks branch in London apparently saw great financial doom looming and finally registered their concerns about Madoff with British regulators. While required to file the same report in the U.S., JPMorgan did not. Over the next few weeks, the bank quietly withdrew some $300 million of its own money invested in various Madoff funds. By December, Madoff was in handcuffs, paraded as a master Ponzi perp before his horrified investors and the world. In other words, JPMorgan never lifted a finger to help protect clients, but when it came to protecting itself against risk, bank executives made sure they were ahead of the curve. JPMorgan executives likely consider the just-imposed $2.5 billion fine as simply the cost of doing business. Over the last year the organization has agreed to pay out a collective $20 billion for various serious banking violations. Imagine if you robbed a bank of, say, $1 million, and prosecutors agreed to let you pay $1,000 to make the criminal charges go away. Being able to pay away your crimes would never happen with an individual, but when it comes to financial institutions, the legal playing field is suddenly different. Why is that? Because our Department of Justice says thats okay. Remember the days when prosecutors actually came to the aid of cheated investors to punish those responsible? The days when charlatan convicts actually went to prison and names like Mike Milken, Ivan Boesky, Jeffery Skilling and Charles Keating made the news? Today, swindlers such as former Countrywide Financial Services CEO Angelo Mozilo a man widely considered to have been a kingpin of the sub-prime mortgage crisis can walk away from the financial messes they create by simply opening up their fattened wallets. Mozilo was four days away from the opening of his criminal fraud trial when the Security and Exchange Commission suddenly dropped the charges in exchange for his payment of a $67.5 million fine. Thats justice? Is it any wonder so many Americans have grown distrustful of both the federal government and big institutions? This is why so many citizens have come to believe that there are two justice systems in this country one for the average citizen and one for those with money and connections. While watching the U.S. Attorneys news conference announcing the latest settlement, I couldnt help but notice not one word was said regarding the federal governments failure to monitor Madoffs years-long misdeeds. Certainly the bank was wrong, but where had the SEC, the FBI and other government agencies been all those years that Madoff was scamming people? If someone as blatant as Madoff slipped through the cracks, how many other financial fraudsters are operating unnoticed today? There seems to be no end to the number of fingers of blame that can rightfully be pointed. Yet, hardly anyone has been held personally responsible for the myriad of financial crimes weve seen over the last few years. U.S. District Court judge Jed Rakoff recently wrote a brave essay about Wall Streets watchdogs. Rakoff, who has an expertise in securities law, wrote that exacting fines and promises to do better from institutions is, little more than window dressing, and he lambasts the shift in DOJ policy toward negotiating with companies. Companies do not commit crimes, the judge wrote. Only their agents do. ... So why not prosecute the agent who actually committed the crime? Is anyone at the Justice Department listening? Visit Diane Dimonds official website at www.dianedimond.com for investigative reporting, polls and more. Diane Dimond Protect Belleairs heritageEditor: We urge residents to please attend the Jan. 21 Commission meeting in Belleair at 6:30 p.m. and encourage officials to vote no on the RM-10 zoning change. This no vote will send a clear message to the hotel owners that the hotel must be saved and that the commission will continue to enforce the preservation ordinance until a buyer is found who will restore the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. The only place in Belleair where the new R-10 zoning classification would serve any useful purpose would be on the property where the Belleview Biltmore currently sits. Therefore, to pretend that the added classification doesnt promote the demolition of the Belleview Biltmore and the rezoning of the property is preposterous. The new classification would send a clear message to the current owners that the Town is willing to allow the hotel to be demolished and for the property to be rezoned and developed. It increases the value to the property as land that can be developed and provides an incentive to the owners to pursue demolition of the hotel rather than selling the historic hotel for less profit. When the same owners of the hotel property threatened to sell the golf course property to developers for the construction of town homes, town officials sprang to the defense of town residents who own property surrounding the golf course by actually buying the golf course and classifying it as a green space in perpetuity. The reasons the commission gave for stopping the developers was that those Belleair residents who purchased homes on the golf course would lose their view, their quality of life and their property values might decrease. Even though it was a huge cost and a big financial risk for our town, it was deemed necessary to protect the citizens who owned properties surrounding the course. It was the right thing to do because the job of town government is to protect the welfare of residents, even at great cost to the town. Those who own property surrounding the Belleview Biltmore deserve the same consideration of their view, quality of life and property values. The Belleview Biltmore used to provide residents with restaurants, a spa, ballrooms, meeting rooms, historic tours and hotel rooms for their out-of-town guests while generating good income for the town. If restored, it could do so again. If the commission stands firm and lets the current owner know that their plans to destroy the hotel and develop the property will never bear fruit, then they would be more willing to negotiate a fair purchase price with those who want to restore the hotel rather than seeking top-dollar for the property. The commission should be doing everything possible to prevent the developers from changing the entire landscape and culture of the area by demolishing the hotel and building condos and town homes that would absolutely destroy the view, the quality of life and decrease the property values of those who live near the hotel as well as many others who cherish the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Incorporating a new R-10 zoning classification sends the opposite message. It says we dont care about protecting the welfare of those residents who own property adjacent to the hotel. The R-10 classification isnt different enough from the existing R15 classification to create completely different types or sizes of residences than currently exist in Belleair. Therefore, construction of new condos and townhomes would almost certainly decrease the property values of existing condos by creating a surplus of new and comparable housing in the immediate vicinity. The current owners have done everything in their power to destroy the historic icon that is responsible for the town of Belleairs existence. We should do nothing to help these people profit from their despicable behavior. Instead, we should send them a strong message that we will do what it takes to protect Belleairs heritage and the property values of Belleair citizens, even if it costs the town substantial sums in lost income while waiting for them to sell the hotel at a fair price to those who would restore the hotel. Just like when Belleair decided to buy the golf course from the current owners to protect the property values of our residents and the heritage of our town, refusing to change our land use code to incorporate the new R-10 zoning classification would protect the property values of residents and would force the owners to sell the hotel for a reasonable amount.

Diane Hein President, Save the Biltmore Preservationists BelleairSave the Tides; the fight goes onEditor: Pinellas County is the most densely populated county in Florida. Our county leaders are currently caught in a struggle between further developing the last vestiges of our county green space or maintaining and protecting what little of it remains. The Tides Golf Course is a 66-acre golf course located off of 113th Street in Seminole. It is adjacent to Millennium Park and Boca Ciega Bay. The course has been in operation for over 40 years. It is home to varied species of wildlife. It acts as wildlife spill over from the park and compliments the entire Seminole and beaches area as a wildlife refuge and manatee sanctuary. The course also serves many tourist visitors who stay on our beaches just 2 miles down the road. Unfortunately, this land had been targeted for another residential housing project. Taylor Morrison, a residential building company, headquartered in Arizona, previously submitted a contract to purchase the Tides. The contract was contingent upon approval of a rezoning application to rezone the land from recreational open to residential. Taylor Morrison had submitted a housing development plan to county officials to build 172 houses and townhomes on the 66-acres. Their plan proposed a density of 2.5 units per acre. Recently, county officials suggested against approval of this plan. About three days ago Taylor Morrison withdrew their re-zoning application. The current owner of the property is Wells Fargo bank. Wells Fargo acquired the property after the previous owner defaulted on his mortgage in 2009. The previous owner did not default on the mortgage because the golf course was losing money. The previous owner of the golf course simply paid too much for the Tides in 2003, during the real estate bubble. Like so many of our fellow Americans, the Tides owner suffered from the sluggish economy and could not maintain the burden of an overvalued piece of property.Pinellas County property appraisers now value the course at nearly $2 million. Shortly thereafter, the bank assumed responsibility over the property. Ironically, about the same time the Tides owner defaulted on his obligation, Wells Fargo Bank received $36 billion of your tax dollars to keep the bank from failing. We were told that the bailout of Wells Fargo and other banks and financial institutions were for our own good. Remember that? To add insult to injury, about three months ago the New York Attorney Generals Office filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging Wells Fargo violated the terms of the recent multi-state mortgage fraud settlement. Now as 2014 begins, I am happy that we were able to repel Taylor Morrisons application. Many of us worked hard and donated thousands of dollars and hours of time in an organized, professional and effective effort to thwart this multi-state developer that is headquartered in the Cayman Islands. We won this battle, but not the war. With your help, the Save the Tides movement will continue to work with the county to protect this valuable piece of land. We also will continue to remain ever vigilant in its protection. Andy G.

The problem is its hard to find a job that works around children. Most jobs are not the kind that allow for you to take off when your child is sick or go on a class field trip or other school events during the day. Most full-time jobs are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and its hard for moms who work fulltime for a company to get off during the day. Because some moms dont want to be constrained to a set schedule, I have noticed a lot of them are starting their own companies or working for businesses where you can be your own boss like Pampered Chef, Thirty-One, Origami Owl and Mary Kay Cosmetics. This way they can work from home or work when their husband gets home from his job. I recently ran into a bunch of moms at a networking group called Business Mamas Referral Group Pinellas County. I had heard about the group from my sister-in-law and then again through a co-worker. I wanted to find out what this group was all about, and I thought I could maybe get some leads. For me, small businesses like this would be great for the marketing, public relations and social media that I do for small businesses. Since my co-worker couldnt attend, she asked me to fill in for her. You see, with this group, you cant miss more than two meetings a year without someone substituting in your place at the meeting. I thought how neat an idea it is to have moms gather and talk about their businesses and refer clients to each other. The Business Mamas was started by Realtor Lindsay Discus-Harrison, a mom with a young child who wanted to create leads for her business but couldnt get to the other referral groups and organizations because they didnt fit her schedule or her needs. She decided to create her own group with a few other business moms a little over a year ago and now they have about 28 members and are growing. They have a group in the Largo/Seminole area that meets once a month on the first Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Panera Bread in Bardmoor. The group is expanding and forming another group in the northern part of the county that will meet the second Thursday of the month. I thought it was fun listening to the moms give a 30-second elevator pitch about their company and giving one about the company I work for. The group does this to give each person time to introduce their business, so fellow members can get to know each company a little better. They feel that everyone in the group is a salesperson for each member in the group. Part of the rules and regulations of the group include that they cant have more than one person of the same business in the group. The members also have to make one referral a month to another Business Mama member or bring a potential new member to the monthly meeting. It seems to be working for these women. Some of the other businesses include moms who work as a photographer, pediatrician, hairdresser, professional organizer and fitness instructor. I found it also great to see they have business play dates. A lot of the moms in this group have young kids, so this is a way for them to socialize and network at the same time. What a great way for moms to join forces and help each other so they can work and be able to be with their kids.

The lecture and book signing is at 2 p.m. in the Pinellas Room at Heritage Village, 11909 125th St. N. Kilbys book, published in 2013 by the University Press of Florida, describes how the search for treasures along Floridas waters 500 years ago continues to remain part of the mystique of Florida. Dreamers, opportunists, developers, young families, tourists, and retirees often seek to enrich themselves and enjoy Floridas bountiful wealth. Kilby illustrates that the fictional mythology that has sustained the legend has actually transformed the historical record of our populous peninsula. For more than 25 years, Orlando graphic designer Rick Kilby has studied Floridas popular history and helped his clients in presenting historical topics in interesting, visual ways. A 1986 graduate of the University of Florida, he was creative director of the Church Street Station attraction in Orlando before launching his own design studio, Kilby Creative. In 2008, Kilby launched a blog about Florida history and culture, Visual Ephemera: Musings from the State Im In, on which hes posted more than 400 articles and received more than 200,000 page views. He also has contributed articles to the Society for Commercial Archeologys Road Notes and presented papers at the Societys conferences, including one on Floridas Fountain of Youth as a roadside attraction.

When he enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters and was first matched with his Big Brother Derrick Jackson, he didnt listen and resisted his Big Brothers advice. But over time, their relationship grew stronger. Now 30 years later, Richardson and Jackson are still in contact. Richardson continues to look up to his Big Brother and even followed in his footsteps. Jackson is a former sports writer and now an award-winning columnist for the Boston Globe. Richardson has become a successful sports writer for Yahoo! NFL. Richardsons story is just one example of the thousands of children the program serves every year. Bigs are ordinary people in regular professions who have something in common: a desire to help kids succeed. The organization has learned former Littles that to them, Bigs were superstars. Longstanding independent research and Big Brothers Big Sisters Youth Outcomes Survey data find children enrolled in the program improve academically and socially. According to the latest data, 94 percent of Littles in the program maintained or improved in their attitudes toward risky behaviors; 88 percent maintained or improved in parental trust and 83 percent maintained or improved in scholastic competence. However, the reality is more than 800 children in the community are on waiting lists for a Big. Part of the challenge is money: each of the Big/Little matches is professionally supported and costs the program more than $1,000 a year. Yet the results are truly priceless: happy, healthy, confident and successful children who had previously been at risk for failure. National Mentoring Month is a great time to join the ranks of superstars, by volunteering or donating today at www.bbbs.org.

(305) 923-4153011614 Above, a diamondback rattlesnake, about 5 feet in length, went from basking in the sun along the Botanical Gardens nature trail to a defensive position as his photo was being taken Jan. 11. After the photo, the snake and photographer went in separate directions. At left, a juvenile gopher tortoise, about 3 inches in length, suns himself on the apron of his burrow along the edge of the same nature trail. Cold-blooded reptiles burrow underground, under logs and dense vegetation to protect themselves from cold such as the area has experienced in the past week. They emerge to warm their bodies and search for food when the temperature rises. Cold-blooded reptiles Photos by JIM LAYFIELD Visit theLargo Leader @www.TBNweekly.comA heavy dose of winter will keep the anglers guessing Big changes have been taking place in our inshore waters; last weeks cold front dropped our water temperature nearly 10 degrees, and if dealing with those frigid temps wasnt enough to keep you inside, the bone-chilling north winds might have done it. Unfortunately, it appears this week well have yet another cold front and possibly windy conditions until late into the weekend. Speckled trout anglers may want to target those deeper mud bottom areas near to the flats that have been holding trout. When it gets super cold like this the trout will often school up right on the bottom, trying to warm up over the mud. Work quarterounce soft plastic jigs very slowly through the area, always remaining in good contact with the bottom, kind of like bass fishing. Dark colored jigs like D.O.A.s 4-inch C.A.L. jerk shad in the gold and bream or root beer would be good options for the darker water. Redfish have been more structure oriented, docks especially. Stretches of docks that have good concentrations of mullet are ones to look for. Cast Berkley Gulp! underneath docks and let the baits soak and wait for the bite. Look for those extreme low tides next week to provide some tailing redfish opportunities. Channel edges as well as the outside of the flats (often marked by no combustion motor zone signs) are good places to find the redfish bunched up, waiting for the tide to come in. Windy, inconsistent weather will keep many off the water this weekend. Those willing to brave the elements should focus their attention to the inland bridges and docks. Sheepshead fishing is in full swing right now and anglers looking to bring home some dinner should capitalize. Scrape barnacles around the bridges, and free-line them back behind the pilings for easy action. Around the docks try live or frozen shrimp fished on the bottom around the pilings.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

PETERSBURG High school juniors residing in St. Petersburg are invited to broaden their cultural horizons by applying to serve as one of St. Petersburgs student ambassadors to Takamatsu, Japan, next summer. The deadline to apply is March 14, 2014. Following interviews by the citys International Relations Committee, a citizen group charged with cultivating relationships between St. Petersburg and cities around the world, one or two students will be selected to live with host families in Takamatsu and experience Japanese life and culture. During their three-week visit, student ambassadors will meet local government officials, including Takamatsus mayor; attend high school and participate in daily activities with their host families. During past visits, student ambassadors have tried their hand at Japanese cooking, honed noodle-making skills, practiced Kendo, attended sporting events, and visited some of the areas historic landmarks. Upon their return to St. Petersburg, the student ambassadors will share information about their overseas visit with City Council and IRC members, as well as with schools, civic groups and others interested in the cultural exchange program. To apply, students must be a resident of St. Petersburg and have completed their junior year by summer 2014. Along with the official application, available online at www.stpete.org/irc/ambassadors.asp, students should submit an original essay and introduction letter to their host family as well as a class photo; a copy of their high school transcript, including verification of honors and/or activity involvement; an introduction letter to the host parents written by the applicants parents and two reference letters, including one from a school faculty member, must accompany the application. All students meeting eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply, regardless of their financial situation. Applications may be hand-delivered to the Marketing and Communications Department, City Hall, 175 Fifth St. N.; or mailed with a postmark of 5 p.m., Friday, March 14. Applications submitted via email will not be considered. While all international travel arrangements, costs, including round-trip airfare and insurance and home stays are complimentary, students should be prepared to cover personal living expenses abroad, including local transportation, visits to local attractions, restaurant meals or other incidentals. Since the programs inception, 48 students have visited Takamatsu as student ambassadors. Past participants have used the experience to pursue studies in international relations, Japanese studies, and international business, while others have deepened their understanding of world cultures. Host families also are needed for late July through early August when St. Petersburg welcomes students from Takamatsu for two weeks during the annual student exchange. Families of current and previous applicants and ambassadors are encouraged to participate in the sister city relationship by serving as a host family. Since becoming a sister city in 1961, St. Petersburg is believed to have one of the longest continuous relationships in the organization, commemorating its 50th anniversary with Takamatsu in 2011. Following official delegations to both cities, an informal sister schools relationship was formed in 2012 for younger students. For the last two years, students attending St. Petersburgs Perkins Elementary and Kinashi Elementary schools have participated in a virtual arts and culture exchange to commemorate the opening of Takamatsus annual Bonsai Festival.

Butcher, who has the ability to make Floridas wild places resemble scenes from the Garden of Eden, will be Januarys featured speaker at the St. Petersburg College Village Square Series. Butcher has been called the Ansel Adams of Florida and a national treasure. He will speak on the subject of Preserving Eden. Advance reservation is required. Registration is $25 for Village Square members, $30 for guests, and $20 for educators and students. Visit spcollege.edu/solutions, click on the Village Square tab. By mail, send checks to Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733. For information, call 394-6251. Butcher, who in a digital age relies upon simple, old-fashioned box cameras to capture his large-scale images, is being sponsored by SPCs Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council. Media cosponsors are the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU Television. An exhibit of 36 of Butchers photographs hangs at the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art at SPCs Tarpon Springs campus through Feb. 16. The exhibit includes photographs that express the personal bond between Butcher and Floridas natural landscapes. Some are as large as 4-by-5 feet. Butchers dramatic black-and-white photographs of Florida wilderness landscapes have been said to make your heart beat faster or even to change your life. Florida has recognized Butchers talent by giving him the highest award offered to a private citizen: the Artist Hall of Fame Award. He has also received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the North American Nature Photography Association and was named Humanitarian of the Year for 2005 from the International University. In 2011, he received the 2011 Distinguished Artist Award from the Florida House in Washington, D.C. Butcher is meticulous, and deliberately slow, in choosing and then executing his shots. He often takes months to scout out the right location, and often the shot involves standing in waist-deep swamp water for hours waiting for just the right light or the right cloud formation, sharing the swamp with alligators, snakes and other wildlife. His goal, he says, is to take pictures that make people feel like they want to walk into them. I want people to be drawn in and feel their way through the environment. He considers wilderness areas to be a sacred necessity, and that the mysterious experience of being close to nature is restorative healing to the human soul. The Village Square at SPC is a forum for nonpartisan debate of key state and national issues that operates under the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Institute serves as a resource for academic enrichment, a non-partisan venue for civil debate and civic engagement. Photo courtesy of ST.

They have just released their second studio album, Made Up Mind. The bands previous album, Revelator, won the Grammy Award for Best Blues Album in 2012. Now, with the release of Made Up Mind, there isnt a shred of doubt that Susan Tedeschi, her husband and creative collaborator, Derek Trucks, and their superb bandmates are on to something something very big. For Derek and Susan, TTBs strength in numbers the band presently comprises 10 members virtually guaranteed that a wide range of influences would steer the music to new, previously unexplored places. That diversity is evident throughout Made Up Mind. I felt that with the personnel in this band, it was just a matter of time before all of these ideas started leaking out, said Trucks in a press release promoting the Sunshine Music and Blues Festival. But we had a lot of confidence that it was going to be really good right out of the gate. Today, as the result of carefully building it from scratch, Tedeschi Trucks Band is nothing less than one big happy family a traveling roots music circus of sorts, roving from town to town and pulling out all the stops along the way, never knowing just what will be the highlight of tonights show or which band member will be the one to shine in the next moment.

When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks hes earned the seasoned policemans respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela.

When a global terrorist network is about to be activated, brilliant CIA analyst Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) has no choice but to become operational. Yet when everyone who could stop the impending international catastrophe has something to lose or something to hide, who can Ryan possibly trust? Caught between his tight-lipped handler Harper (Academy Awardwinner Kevin Costner), his in-the-dark fiance Cathy (Keira Knightley) and a fearsome Russian oligarch (Kenneth Branagh), Jack must confront a new reality where secrets and lies are everywhere, yet the fate of millions rests on his finding the truth. With the urgency of a lit fuse, hes in a race to stay one step ahead of everyone around him.

It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.Generation WarGenre: Drama Cast: Volker Bruch, Tom Schilling, Miriam Stein, Katherina Schttler and Ludwig Trepte Director: Philipp Kadelbach Not rated Valor, courage, and betrayal come to the fore in this remarkable epic that shows the everyday realities of wartime life from a deeply personal perspective. Billed as a German Band of Brothers, Generation War vividly depicts the lives of five young German friends forced to navigate the unconscionable moral compromises of life under Hitler. In Berlin in 1941, on the eve of Hitlers invasion of the Soviet Union, level-headed officer Wilhelm (Volker Bruch) is full of patriotic fervor as he heads for the eastern front with his sensitive younger brother Friedhelm (Tom Schilling). Charlotte (Miriam Stein) is a young nurse in love with Wilhelm who is serving in the Red Cross. Greta (Katherina Schttler) is an ambitious singer who longs to become another Marlene Dietrich, while her boyfriend Viktor (Ludwig Trepte) faces a daily struggle for survival as a Jew in an increasingly oppressive regime.Big Bad WolvesGenre: Crime and thriller Cast: Lior Ashkenazi, Rotem Keinan, Tzahi Grad and Dov Glickman Director: Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado Not rated A series of brutal murders puts the lives of three men on a collision course: The father of the latest victim now out for revenge, a vigilante police detective operating outside the boundaries of law, and the main suspect in the killings a religious studies teacher arrested and released due to a police blunder.Reasonable DoubtGenre: Crime and thriller Cast: Dominic Cooper, Samuel L. Jackson, Gloria Reuben, Erin Karpluk, Ryan Robbins and Dylan Taylor Director: Peter Howitt Rated: R When up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run, he feels compelled to manipulate the case to acquit the accused criminal who was found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitchs worst fears come true when he realizes that his actions freed a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.Summer in FebruaryGenre: Drama and romance Cast: Dominic Cooper, Dan Stevens and Emily Browning Director: Christopher Menaul Not rated A sweeping romance set at a bohemian artist colony on the picturesque coasts of pre-war England, Summer In February is based on the true story of painter sir Alfred Munnings (Dominic Cooper) and his blue-blood best friend Gilbert (Dan Stevens).

Required 727-593-3900010914 011614 studio album since 2010s acclaimed Georgia Warhorse. This River, like his previous releases, was produced by Grey and Dan Prothero, and recorded at Retrophonics Studio in St. Augustine, with additional recording done in Greys home studio, known as The Egg Room. As proven by his previous albums, Grey is a meticulous storyteller. Many of the new songs are about being your own worst enemy, and about normal folks pushing themselves over the edge, says Grey in a press release from Alligator Records. Greys lyrics and slice-of-life scenarios are filled with honest detail, helping to bring his emotionally complex characters to life in songs such as Somebody Else, Shades Of Crazy, The Ballad Of Larry Webb and This River. I see a little bit of myself in these songs, Grey said. The difference is in the choices people make. His gritty vocals and punchy horn arrangements add even more depth to the lyrical album. Greys fervent delivery and the expert musicianship of the band pull the listener deep inside each track, making This River a deeply moving and engaging musical statement. I took my time and Im happy for it, said Grey. JJ Grey is from Jacksonville. He made his recording debut in 2001 with Blackwater, following up in 2004 with Lochloosa. In 2007, Grey released his Alligator debut, Country Ghetto, followed by 2008s Orange Blossoms. With the release of 2010s Georgia Warhorse, Grey stepped further into the mainstream view with the AAA radio breakout single The Sweetest Thing. In 2011 the full fury of the bands live show was captured on the live CD/DVD Brighter Days. From his early days playing cover music behind chicken wire at a Jacksonville juke joint to playing sold-out shows and some of the largest music festivals in the world, its been a long road. But Grey has no illusions about where hes headed or where hes been. When prompted with questions about his past accomplishments or future plans, he lays down a little backwoods wisdom: Im just a salmon swimming upstream, Grey said. Going back home, I reckon. I dont know why and I quit caring why a long time ago. I guess there is no why that my mind could understand anyway. All I do know is that Ive enjoyed and Im still enjoying every second of just being here and doing whatever it is Im doing.More blues on the billAlso appearing at this years festival are New Orleans favorites Galactic, legendary Leon Russell, the great acoustic blues of Hot Tuna with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady; the incredible jazz bassist Stanley Clarke, guitar virtuoso Bobby Lee Rogers and British blues guitarist and singer Oli Brown as well as The Ringers. Jimmy Herring, Wayne Krantz, Michael Landau, Gary Novak and Etienne Mbappe will join forces as The Ringers to perform at the festival. The Ringers first debuted in early 2013 for a very exclusive tour on the east coast. The tour proved quite fulfilling for the iconic five-some, bringing together their varied backgrounds of rock, funk, jazz, blues and African styles. The original concept behind The Ringers was to bring five guys together, not to just perform as a super-group, but to work as a unifying artistic force, one where people put music ahead of their egos to collectively create great music. These five veteran musicians will perform together on new Ringers material written exclusively for this band, as well as each individuals solo material, covers tunes chosen by the players and brand new tunes each artist will debut for the live audience. The Ringers are also planning to record an album of originals, for release in 2014. Jimmy Herring, as the founding member of The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Project Z and Jazz is Dead, in addition to playing with everyone from The Allman Brothers Band, The Grateful Dead to Phil Lesh and Friends, and Bla Fleck, has made his indelible impact on the music world. He currently serves as the lead guitarist for the very popular American band Widespread Panic and released his second solo album, Subject To Change Without Notice, last year. Wayne Krantz released his tenth album, Howie 61, last year to glowing critical praise. Krantz has played with Randy Brecker, Leni Stern and Steely Dan, among others. Musician and composer Michael Landau is a prolific session guitarist and performer who has played on hundreds of records since the 1980s, some session highlights include: Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, B.B. King, Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. He has toured with Robben Ford, the Steve Gadd Band, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and his own project The Michael Landau Group. Bass player Etienne Mbappe, is best known for his years with the Zawinul Syndicate. In the s, he was the masterpiece of the jazz fusion band Ultramarine which incorporated jazz with elements of African and Caribbean influences. He also played with Ray Charles on his last album and is currently a member of John McLaughlins 4th Dimension. Gary Novak, an amazing drummer, began his career at the young age of 10, playing in his famous pianist fathers trio in Chicago. Novak has recorded and/or toured with such musical luminaries as Chick Corea, Alanis Morrisette, Allan Holdsworth, Andrew WK, Michael McDonald, Natalie Cole, David Sanborn, George Benson and Anita Baker along with many more. Galactic was formed 18 years ago in New Orleans, and they cut their teeth playing the biggest party in America: Mardi Gras, when the town shuts down entirely to celebrate. Galactic is a collaborative band with a unique format. Its a stable quintet that plays together with high musicianship. Though the band hasnt had a lead singer for years, it is not purely an instrumental group. Galactic is part of a diverse community of musicians, and in their own studio they have the luxury of experimenting. So on their albums, they do something thats unusual in rock but not so controversial an idea in, say, hiphop: they create something thats a little like a revue, a virtual show featuring different vocalists (mostly from New Orleans) and instrumental soloists each taking their turn on stage in the Galactic sound universe. Leon Russell is a music legend and perhaps the most accomplished and versatile musician in the history of rock n roll. In his distinguished and unique 50 year career, he has played on, arranged, written and/or produced some of the best records in popular music.

A lot of her ideas come from customers who cant find exactly what they are looking for. She then goes home, develops a pattern that will be useful and fun. She has been working with American Craft Endeavors for just over four years and truly enjoys working with them and the customers they bring out to the craft fairs. Richard D. Wise is a nature photographer based in Northeastern Ohio. Wise has been in the photographic business for 40 years in one form or another. He was a Navy photographer in Vietnam. He served as an aerial photographer in the Pacific and in Washington, D.C. Wise photographed former President Nixons inaugural and other political events in the Washington, D.C. area. He worked as a photographic technician for NASA in Greenbelt, Md. He has worked at numerous studios, producing images for advertising, models portfolios, weddings, and portraits. At times, looking for refuge from the pressures of everyday commercial work, Wise would step lightly into the quiet world of photo art. Working with still lifes and nudes, he found relief from the routine of commercial work. Although he enjoyed his work, he was searching for photographic satisfaction on a higher level. Because of his lifelong outdoor background, he gravitated to the world of nature photography. Wises photographs have been published in magazines, calendars, and have earned high honors in regional photography competitions.

By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO Every week, the city of Largo receives three to five requests from property owners who want to join the city, agreeing to pay its taxes in exchange for the extra services it provides. The requests come without any advertising from the city or any active attempt to extend its boundaries, said Teresa Brydon, the citys economic development manager. Its a good problem to have, but a problem nonetheless: the city currently has a backlog of 240 annexation agreements for properties waiting to be added to the tax roll. We have a lot of people that want to be a part of us, the city of Largo. Its a reasonable assumption that we want to be bringing them in, Brydon said. Given budget constraints, the city doesnt have a dedicated staff person to handle the issue. But during the Jan. 14 work session, Brydons twoperson department committed to tackling what she called the beast to try to get ahead of the curve in the upcoming year. Largo commissioners suggested she solicit the help of other city staff, an intern or a temporary hire to complete the project.Dont let us be the hold up, Commissioner Woody Brown said. Well do whatever needs to be done, I think.The city may schedule extra hearings solely to authorize the ordinances needed to annex the properties, but not until May or June, Brydon said. Each property thats not adjacent to another needs its own annexation ordinance, which must be read by the city clerk during two public hearings.

The current U.S. 19 construction project from north of Whitney Road to State Road 60 in Clearwater has a new estimated completion date October of this year instead of the summer of 2015. Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. Jack Latvala and Ananth Prasad, Florida Department of Transportation secretary, announced that the project had been accelerated Jan. 10 during a meeting at the Embassy Mobile Home Park, 16416 U.S. 19 in Clearwater. Thanks to Sen. Latvala and families in the region, Im proud to announce that FDOT has formed an agreement with the contractor to accelerate work to get everyone off these service roads sooner, Scott said in a press release. The cost to accelerate the project is $4.8 million. When complete, the 2.7-mile project, which began in November 2009 with an estimated cost of $113.5 million, will allow for uninterrupted travel from 49th Street to Sunset Point Road, according to FDOTs project description. Project plans calls for removing traffic signals and replacing them with interchanges at Seville Boulevard and Belleair Road. Frontage roads will provide access to businesses with improvements to the interchange at State Road 60 to improve traffic flow. By JULIANA A. TORRESLARGO With the widening of Ulmerton Road around Largo Mall and the busy Seminole Boulevard intersection completed last month, the Florida Department of Transportation is working on the final two portions of the project. The roadway starting at 119th Street just before Ulmerton turns south to meet up with Walsingham Road, and extending until the Seminole Bypass Canal, right before the railroad, was completed Dec. 23. The widening of the road to three lanes in each direction was a $16.9 million project. The project included additional turn lanes for the two major intersections in the area, namely that of Seminole Boulevard and Ridge Road. Additionally, the roads traffic poles and signals at those intersections, along with the ones at 101st Street and the Largo Mall entrance, are now hurricane resistant. Medians also were altered. They were closed complete at Palm Avenue, Block Drive, 10th Street Southwest and the west entrance to Lowes. Full median openings were changed to left-turn-only medians at the entrance into Oak Ridge A memorial of fitness Photo by JULIANA A.

The next phase of construction includes the south side of the road east of the canal, pictured in the background of this photograph.Last parts of Ulmerton widening in the worksPhoto courtesy of FDOTTwo new interchanges, including one at Belleair Road, are designed to improve traffic movement between U.S. 19 and frontage roads that provide access to businesses.

Collins was suspected in two armed robberies in Clearwater on Jan. 5 and 7 before Largo police joined the search.

4A Leader, January 16, 2014This project improves the safety of the traveling public, reduces travel time by eliminating congestion and separates local traffic from through traffic by including frontage roads, Prasad said. In the summer of 2013, the contractor began construction of the main roadway lanes from south of Harn Boulevard to Whitney Road. Plans called for completion of southbound bridges and approaches for use by northbound and southbound traffic by early 2014. Construction on the northbound bridge over Seville Boulevard was next, followed by removal of the old bridge over State Road 60. In the spring of this year, plans called for the contractor to begin construction on the northbound bridge and approach with completion of the bridge over Belleair Road and Allens Creek slated for completion by summer. The entire project was to be finished by summer of 2015. Accelerating the U.S. 19 project will not only benefit the business community, but it also will help the motorists who travel this corridor every day, Latvala said, giving credit for fast tracking the project to Scott, FDOT and the contractor, Hubbard Construction. New plans call for the contractor to shift traffic to a free flow configuration by Oct. 15, Scott said. All signals on U.S. 19 within the project area will be removed, creating a signal-free corridor between Republic Drive/Hammock Park Boulevard in Clearwater to Mainlands Boulevard in Pinellas Park. Pinellas County Commission Chair Karen Seel reacted favorably to the governors announcement. I am very pleased with the news that U.S. 19s construction will be accelerated, Seel said in an email Sunday afternoon. Seel has long been a champion for improvements to U.S. 19. She chaired the U.S. 19 Task Force, which put forth a list of recommendaApartments, the east entrance into Lowes, the west entrance into Pinellas County Sheriffs Department, at 117th Street, at Railroad Avenue and at the Ridge Road west of 113th Street. Pepper Contracting Services was the states contractor for the project, which began in 2011.Construction moves eastConstruction has already begun on the next two miles of the road from the canal until El Centro/Ranchero Boulevard, a few blocks east of Belcher Road. The Florida Department of Transportation hired Conalvias USA for the $21.5 million job, slated for completion in late 2015. The contractor on this project is working on finishing the widening on the south side of the job, department spokeswoman Kris Carson explained in an email. When the south side is complete, traffic will be shifted to the south side and then the widening on the north side will start. The south side of the road will be completed in a few months, she added. Both sides will each gain an extra lane, making the road six lanes wide and reducing traffic congestion in the area. The project includes hurricane-resistance upgrades for traffic signals and poles at Starkey Road, Tall Pines Drive, Belcher Road and replacements for the emergency signals at Rosetree Lane. Eventually, the project will entail median closures at Washington Avenue, Center Avenue, Clay Avenue, Southwind Lane, 90th Road, Fountain Way, 34th Way and Cumberland Drive. Medians will be altered to prevent left turns onto eastbound Ulmerton from Cheryl Road, Coral Way and Monterey Lakes and onto westbound Ulmerton from 93rd Street and Rosetree Plaza. Construction is scheduled primarily during the day, with additional lane closures permitted between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. The final projectThe final portion of the widening project is already underway on the east side from 38th Street, just past the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport, to the on-ramp to Interstate 275. The $20.5 million price tag covers widening Ulmerton Road to six total lanes and widening Roosevelt Boulevard, between 28th Avenue and Ulmerton Road, to three lanes in each direction. The construction, contracted to Lane Construction Corporation, also includes replacing the Roosevelt Boulevard bridge over Ulmerton. The contractor is working on the bridge deck pours on the new bridge, Carson wrote. The department estimates that traffic will be switched to the new bridge in either late summer or early fall of this year. Work also is starting on widening 34th Street,Developer withdraws application to rezone Tides property By TIFFANY RAZZANOSEMINOLE Developer Taylor Morrison twithdrew its application with Pinellas County to rezone the Tides Golf Club for residential development. The property, 11832 66th Ave. N., is located in an unincorporated part of the County along Boca Ciega Bay. The homebuilder withdrew its proposal to build up to 170 singleand multi-family homes on nearly 96 acres just two days before the Jan. 9 Local Planning Agency meeting, the first of several hearings the county would have held while considering the plan. Just days earlier, a County staff report recommended that the rezoning request be denied because the proposed development was inconsistent with the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan, particularly with the plans policies regarding open space. In a built-out county it is difficult to compensate for such a sizeable loss should these lands be developed, staff wrote in the report. The economic, environmental, and community (social and quality of life) consequences of conversion of open space to developed uses are at the center of its recommendation to deny the proposed development. Taylor Morrisons plan designated 18 acres for open space. Once that space is gone, its gone and its not coming back, said William Kimpton, the Dunedin-based attorney who represents Save the Tides, a group of citizens who were opposed to the proposed development. Kimpton expressed his surprise that Taylor Morrison withdrew its application just days prior to when the hearings were supposed to begin. We prepared for a very long battle and the battle went away, he said. Ed Methfessel, president of Save the Tides, said that because of public opposition to the project and the staffs recommendation, Im sure the homebuilder recognized it wouldnt get approved. He added, Its really great news. Losing the Tides would have affected quality of life in the area, he said. They wanted to take away something that made Pinellas County great and made Seminole magical. But at the end of the day, [the County staff] stayed true to following the comprehensive plan and protecting green space. Ed Armstrong, a Clearwater attorney representing Taylor Morrison, declined to comment on the matter. Save the Tides formed at the end of 2012 when Tides neighbors began noticing surveyors on the property. As rumors swirled, Methfessel called the County and learned that Taylor Morrison had submitted a proposal to rezone the parcel. Tides, which still operates as a golf course, is currently bank-owned, after Wells Fargo took over ownership of the land when it purchased Wachovia and then foreclosed on the property in 2009. At the time, Wells Fargo still owed about $6.8 million on the mortgage, said Ron Stephens of Save the Tides. The organization, opposed to the proposed zoning and land use changes, sprung to action. More than 10,000 people signed a petition circulated by the group and Methfessel said he was expecting between 400 and 500 activists to attend the Jan. 9 meeting if it were to go forward. One of Save the Tides primary concerns is that the development would have increased density in an already highly populated area. Pinellas is the most densely populated and second smallest county in the state. The group also was concerned about conservation. The Tides property makes up 20 percent of recreational open space for the Countys District 9, Kimpton said. The parcel, which serves as a buffer to Boca Ciega Millennium Park, is a great natural aquifer and is also home to many different types of wildlife, Methfessel said. Ive even seen bald eagles nest there occasionally, he added. The fight to save the Tides isnt over. Just because Taylor Morrison has backed away from the property doesnt mean another developer wont step in, Kimpton said. Thats why we want a permanent solution for preserving this space, he said, so future generations dont have to go through what we have. Kimpton said hes proposing that the County create a special district for the Tides land. He submitted a letter outlining his proposal and plans to meet with representatives from the County soon. His hopes are that the local community will be able to purchase the property from the bank, with the help of the County government, to preserve the green space. According to the staff report, there are 5,318 privately owned recreation sites in Pinellas; 5,017 of these acres are golf and country clubs. As the economy ebbs and flows, these properties could eventually find themselves for sale, Kimpton said, reflecting the different interests and needs of the people. There may be too many golf courses. Are we going to be able to preserve them all? He added, The Tides is really the perfect case to have this debate. Thats why were going to go forward with additional steps to try to preserve this land for the future.

Developer Taylor Morrison withdrew its application to rezone the property for residential development two days before the Local Planning Agencys first hearing on the proposal. ANNEXATION, from page 1Aprocess for the ordinances takes about 45 days.Brydon said she saw the benefit of getting the annexations all cleaned up. She wasnt in favor of putting a hold on new annexation agreements until the backlog was cleared, as Commissioner Michael Smith suggested. I think we need to continue that to show that we are a friendly city, she said. If we were to tackle this and get this under our belt, then bringing in annexation agreements in the future will be a simple process. The city has been treading water on annexations since the backlog was first brought to the commissioners attention in March, fluctuating right around 340 eligible annexation agreements despite completing numerous annexations in the last year. Of the 340 annexation agreements currently eligible, 125 are on hold because they are within a county community development district of some sort, leaving 215 for the city to tackle in the coming months. The city also has 36 single-parcel and eight multiple-parcel properties that have a sewer indenture agreement with the city, which grants residents use of Largos sewer system but nothing else. Eighteen of those properties are eligible to join the city, including four multifamily properties that account for 143 residential parcels. Last month, the county drafted an interlocal agreement to resolve Type A enclaves, unincorporated areas that are surrounded on all sides by a single municipality. Should Largo, the county and the other eight cities involved approve the agreement, Largo would be able to annex another 44 properties that are in a Type a enclave but arent contiguous to current city boundaries. Largo commissioners will be considering an ordinance to approve the agreement in the next few months. To help prevent a future backlog, the city will be eliminating some of the financial incentive residents have to sign annexation agreements, especially when it will be a while until the properties are eligible to join the city. Under new annexation agreements, residents wont receive a waiver of a 25 percent surcharge until they are annexed in or become continuous to a municipal boundary. Per the commissions previous direction, annexation agreements that are outside the citys planning service area have been canceled, Brydon said. The commission also agreed with staffs recommendation for a consultant who would examine the fiscal impacts of annexing even more properties within the planning service area. The city has an additional 700 annexation agreements on properties that are not contiguous with city boundaries and cant be annexed in right away, Brydon said. There is a greater percentage that are still outside that we havent touched, she said. Such a study which would analyze if the city would need to hire more police officers, for example could cost between $50,000 to $75,000, said Community Development Director Carol Stricklin. During the Jan. 15 meeting, the commission also: Agreed to hire Water Company of America to review the citys utility billing; the company is paid 46 percent of any revenues it discovers are not being paid to the city for three years worth of billings after the mistake is identified Gave suggestions for changes to the charter review committee, much of which involved clarifications of language Discussed the merits of enacting term limits within the charter, but ultimately discarded the idea tions in 2000 to improve the roadway. Many of those recommendations were added to FDOTs work list, including current projects, such as the one from Whitney Road to State Road 60. However, she acknowledges that the work has been an inconvenience for many, which is why acceleration of the project is so important. Our citizens and businesses have endured this construction far too long, Seel said. We look forward to the completion of U.S. 19 for safety and traffic reasons. Yeah!Photo courtesy of FDOTA U.S. 19 construction project from north of Whitney Road to State Road 60 in Clearwater is expected to be finished by October, months ahead of the original completion date of the summer of 2015. FAST TRACK, from page 1A just east of Roosevelt Boulevard, Carson added. The project includes adding sidewalks to the north side of the road, where there are none, and replacing the sidewalks on the south side, between 34th and 38th streets and between Egret Boulevard and Mercury Insurance. The medians at this portion of Ulmerton will be altered: closing the opening at 35th Street and changing all the openings at the east end of the road to directional openings. FDOT advises that detours will be necessary to complete the project, though lane closures will occur mainly at night. The project, which will bring the entire length of Ulmerton Road to three lanes each way, is scheduled to be completed in spring 2016.Photo by JULIANA A. TORRESConstruction on Ulmerton Road, from 119th Street to the intersection of Seminole Boulevard, pictured here, has been completed and cleared from the six lanes that now make up the major roadway.

Sale of Belleview Biltmore Hotel could be pending By BRIAN GOFFBELLEAIR The Belleview Biltmore Hotel soon may be under new ownership. Details of the sale are nearly finalized and the closing date will be Friday, Jan. 24, said a source, who asked not to be identified. While the prospective new owners of the hotel have not been identified, the source has indicated it is a Real Estate Investment Trust, which are companies that are interested in developing property, not in preserving historic properties. Ed Armstrong, the Clearwater Attorney who represents the current owners of the hotel, the Ades brothers of Miami, all but confirmed the sale is pending. I cannot say much, he said. There is potentially a closing date pending, it depends on how things play out, nothing is set in stone yet. When interviewed on Jan. 13, Armstrong said things should be clearer in 10 days, which would be on or around Jan. 24. I think the situation will be clarified in the next 10 days or so, he said. It will be more real, much more real in 10 days. Armstrong, who confirmed he is part of the negotiations, would not confirm the possibility of a REIT becoming the new owner of the property, but said that the current talks do not involve preserving the hotel. The intended use of the property would be residential, he said. When asked if Miami area architect Richard Heisenbottle was the person involved in the talks, Armstrong was quick and to the point. No he is not, he said. Back in April 2012 Heisenbottle and two partners appeared before the Belleair Commission and outlined plans to buy the hotel and refurbish it to save it from the wrecking ball. Since then difficulty in raising the estimated $200 million for the project stalled his bid. All along he has said he was confident that the money could be raised given enough time. Now it appears time has run out and he isnt happy. Well be hugely disappointed if after taking it this far were not able to bring it to closing, he said. Ive put more effort into this project than anyone else by far. Frankly, Im devastated and feel it is unfortunate for the people of Belleair. The hotel was, and is, the identity of this town. Heisenbottle said he knew nothing about this latest development and potential sale and indicates that it might not be over yet. If it goes to a developer Ill obviously be very, very disappointed, he said. We were close to a deal and getting the financing for the entire property. We believe we are still hugely close and I continue to be in touch with Daniel (Ades). Word of the pending sale did not surprise Mayor Gary Katica. I said a long time ago that the Ades brothers are not developers so the fact that they might be selling the hotel to a developer doesnt surprise me, he said. Im sorry Heisenbottle isnt in the mix. They say the closing date is the 24th; at this point Ill believe it when I see it. Katica said he has no idea who the potential new buyers are, but hed been told they are developers. I get the feeling that were getting down to the end run stage, he said. Enough is enough. Youd love to see the hotel restored but you hate to see it just sitting there. It is not fair to the people of the RPD Photo by BRIAN GOFFThe Belleview Biltmore hotel might soon be sold. The hotel, which was built at the turn of the last century, has been closed since 2009.

Much of this data is partial in nature, but in cases where Target has an email address, we will attempt to contact affected guests. This communication will be informational, including tips to guard against consumer scams. Target will not ask those guests to provide any personal information as part of that communication. In addition, guests can find the tips at Target.com/databreach, along with updated information in the Data Breach FAQs to help answer questions and provide additional resources. I know that it is frustrating for our guests to learn that this information was taken and we are sorry they are having to endure this, said Gregg Steinhafel, chairman, president and chief executive officer. Our guests expect more from us and deserve better. And I want them to know that understanding and sharing the facts is important to me and the entire Target team. Guests will have zero liability for the cost of any fraudulent charges arising from the breach. To provide further peace of mind, Target is offering one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to all Target guests who shopped our U.S stores. Guests will have three months to enroll in the program.Online booking photos removedLARGO Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Jan. 9 that the Sheriffs Office has restructured the Whos In Jail page and eliminated the suspects booking photo from the record. The sheriffs decision to eliminate the photos was made due to the activities of several websites, including mugshots.com, justmugshots.com, and arrests.org, that have in recent years used the Sheriffs Office site to mine and post photos to their website; and then charge citizens exorbitantly high fees for their removal. After visiting mugshots.com myself I saw that citizens were being charged anywhere from $399 to $1,700 to remove their booking photos from just that one site I decided that it is more than a rip-off it is extortion, said the sheriff. The changes to the Whos In Jail page at www.pcsoweb.com will go live Monday, Jan. 13. Starting Jan. 13, online public access will be limited to the same inmate demographic information as in the past, however, there will be no photograph displayed, thereby eliminating the mug shots websites ability to mine the images in bulk. The Sheriffs Office will continue to honor individual public records requests regarding booking photos. According to the sheriff, A person may have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to go from site to site to remove these booking posts. A lot of these people have committed relatively minor crimes or made a bad decision. The reposting of their booking photo isnt illegal, but charging a fee to remove it is unconscionable, verging on blackmail and clearly taking advantage of someones circumstances. So we are doing our part to take away their ammunition. The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office has allowed public access to the photographs of incarcerated subjects within the Pinellas County Jail via our Whos in Jail page since 2005. Understanding the investigative value of this site, and the needs for other law enforcement agencies to view and elicit inmate photograph; and in consideration that media entities that regularly work with the Sheriffs Office also will continue to need access to these photographs for purposes of their news stories, the Sheriffs Office has established a process by which their access will be maintained through an authorized members log-in area. Authorized Members (media entities and law enforcement agencies) may access the clean booking photographs in the following manner: Open the Whos In Jail page. Click on the Authorized Members link tab to logon Click request an account Fill out the application to include first and last name, company name, contact phone number and email address and click submit. You will receive an automatic email, providing a password for your initial access. You may then change your password. For more information, contact the Sheriffs Public Information Office at 582-6221. To report information about a crime anonymously and be eligible for an award, call Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County at 800-873TIPS (8477) or submit a tip at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.

WWW.COMFORTKEEPERS.COM NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, Diane Genovese OwnerHospital to Home: The Importance of Transitional CareAfter a long or even a short hospital stay, anyone appreciates the value of sleeping in ones own bed. No one to wake you during the night, no more pokes, prods or beeps and buzzes. Just you snuggled up under your own covers within the familiar sights and smells of home. As wonderful as that sounds, there are a few things to consider regarding transitioning from a hospital back into the home. For many seniors, this process may be complicated depending on their circumstances.Seniors are of special concern during this phase, especially those who suffer medical conditions and are required to take different medications at varying times of the day. Sending someone from a care facility such as a hospital, where aroundthe-clock monitoring is prevalent, to an environment where little or no interaction occurs requires advance planning to ensure the transition is smooth and safe. Some things to consider include: The mobility of the senior Medical conditions that may need monitoring Administration of medicine(s) Future appointments with health care providers NutritionAttention needs to be given to the mobility of the person going home. Challenges in that area should be addressed and solved before less-mobile seniors arrive home. Ensure walkways in the home are clear. Remove trip hazards such as rugs. Rearrange extension cords so they are not a hazard. Handrails in the bathroom can prevent falls.Proper administration of medications is essential for seniors required to take them even for a short period of time. Sometimes, if multiple medicines are needed, seniors may need help remembering time schedules. Pill dispensers can be used for this purpose, as well, and are the best option for ultimate safety to keep medications organized and aid in preventing accidental overdose.Following the above tips can help pave the way to a positive transition from hospital to home. Successful transitions help eliminate returns to the hospital which are common when transitions are not well planned. If you are unable to assist a senior in need, now might be the time to hire a home health care provider, such as Comfort Keepers. Comfort Keepers attend to seniors in need on a full or part-time basis performing such duties as cooking, light cleaning, running errands and simply by providing company to keep the seniors spirits up.011614 011614 $799Haircut*Seminole Hair & Nails1250 Seminole Blvd., Largo727-582-9979*Mens & Senior Haircut.

There is little the town can do about the pending sale. It has no jurisdiction or power to stop a sales transaction between two private parties. It can, however, have some say in what goes on the property. Town Manager Micah Maxwell said there is a process that must be followed, particularly because the hotel is an historic property. The new owners would have to get a certificate of appropriateness first, he said. That would then allow them to get a demolition permit, but that cant happen without their presenting a site plan, and that must be approved by the commission. At the commission meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 21, commissioners are scheduled to vote on the proposed new zoning designation designed especially for the property. The new RM-10 designation would limit the number of units per acre to 10, but it would allow the height restriction of 32 feet be increased to 80 feet in some instances. Commissioners were told the new designation would allow a developer more freedom to diversify the type of townhouses or condominiums that can be built on the property. Residential Planned Development residents recently voted in favor of the new zoning designation but wanted to make sure that no more than 160 units would be built on the property and each would be a minimum of 15 hundred square feet. Before the sale of the hotel can be finalized the towns lien must be satisfied. There is an $83,000 lien on the property. It is the result of a $250 a day fine because of the deteriorating state of the hotel. At one point the fines totaled $250,000 but they were forgiven when the Ades brothers agreed to sell the Belleview Biltmore Golf Club to the town for $3.5 million.

Missouri Ave. and lunged at the clerk, according to Clearwater police. Largo patrol received a call on Jan. 8 that a man had brandished a large kitchen knife at the CVS at 2390 Belcher Road. He lunged at the clerk before reaching into the drawer and grabbing money, police said. The suspect was seen running to and leaving in a maroon Dodge pickup truck. His description matched that of the suspect in Clearwaters two cases. The Clearwater Police Department had a solid tip/lead from Collins wife, who said she thought her husband was the suspect in their robberies, Largo Detective Jill Freire wrote in a citywide email. Further, the wife said her husband had mentioned committing suicide by cop, Freire explained. The special operations units from both departments got involved Jan. 8. That afternoon, Clearwater detectives pinged Collins cellphone, which determined that he was in Largo. As detectives in Largo were alerted to his general location, another call for an armed robbery at the Largo Lowes, 11101 Ulmerton Road, came in. A suspect there robbed a clerk in the garden center at knifepoint before grabbing money and running back to his vehicle. Detectives began searching the area for the Dodge pickup truck identified in the former robberies. An undercover Clearwater detective found the truck and began following it, alerting both agencies to Collins location. The suspect spotted the police cars headed toward him and sped away as Clearwater officers tried to pull him over. He headed east on Palmetto Street, losing control of the truck east of Highland Avenue. The truck crashed into a power utility pole, flipped and landed in the backyard of a residence, destroying a fence. He continued to fight officers trying to arrest him, Largo police reported. He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg for injuries suffered in the crash. A passenger who was with him in the truck was not injured. Clearwater police found the machete, smaller knife and both shirts he wore in the Clearwater robberies in his truck. Clearwater police had matched a shirt worn by the suspect in the Jan. 7 robbery with one Collins was seen wearing in a photo he had posted on Facebook. Collins is charged with four counts of robbery with a deadly weapon as well as aggravated fleeing and eluding law enforcement, according to Pinellas County Jail records. Largo also charged him with burglary of an unoccupied structure and fraudulent use of a credit card.Help needed to find missing womanCLEARWATER Pinellas County Sheriffs detectives are asking for the publics assistance in locating a missing Clearwater woman.

Leader, January 16, 2014 Many reports tell us that the cost of living today is rising faster than it has in the past. Mortgage payments, left over from higher property values in Florida, are saddling many today. There are government programs available to those with high mortgage payments. Did you know that you may be able to reduce your mortgage payment to a more affordable level? I may be able to take advantage of one of these programs to reduce your mortgage payment to a level equal to 31percent of your income. In many situations these high mortgage payments, along with high credit card debt, can cause us to live outside of our means just to try to keep a steady lifestyle. One way that some deal with these rising costs is with short term high interest loans, which, in turn, can lead to even more problems trying to keep finances in order. There are better solutions to your problems, but it can take time to get your finances back under control. You will want to review your expenses, cutting any spending that is unnecessary and put it back into levels less than your total income. Try to manage short term finances closely. Sometimes your situation may be caused by circumstances out of your control. Maybe a loss of income due to job loss, illness or even the passing of a loved one can cause spiraling debt problems. In many cases a simple budget adjustment just wont help. You may need to seek advice about how to best deal with the debt in these situations. Sometimes the best solution to your problem may be a fresh start, but every situation is different. What may work for your neighbor might not work for you. Thats why I offer free consultations at any of my three offices located in Clearwater, Pinellas Park, or Tampa. Contact my office today to set up some time so we can discuss your particular situation.

Suite 252 Clearwater Baby Boomers have begun reaching retirement age. For many, the retirement they anticipated is no longer a guarantee. Social Security probably won't meet their needs and most companies do not provide cushy pensions. "Baby Boomers are living longer, and in many cases caring for children, parents, and often even grandchildren," says Elizabeth (Liza, pronounced Lizza) Campa-Flanagan, Certified Financial Planner with Raymond James Financial Services Inc. Liza is keenly attuned to the financial climate. She is focused on providing an integrated advice platform for all clients. Financial Assessment According to Liza, Baby Boomers are in need of good financial advice in today's economic climate. She encourages Baby Boomers to begin by assessing their current situation. "The first thing I ask someone at or near retirement is if they know how much income they need their assets to generate once they retire," she explains. "Realistically determining the income your investments can generate and building in a buffer to preserve your retirement under difficult conditions takes considerable time and work." Part of building a retirement plan is articulating your priorities and goals for life in retirement. Many factors play a key role in a successful retirement plan, such as: Your income sources Your assets and anticipated expenses The rate at which you'll be able to spend in retirement "Having a plan and continuing to adjust it over time can help put you on the path to a comfortable retirement," Liza says. Make a Plan The next step in the process is making a plan. "First, make sure your retirement team is in place, starting with your financial advisor," Liza says. "Depending on your situation, the financial advisor may also act as your team's 'quarterback,' coordinating and working with family members, your CPA, an estate attorney, and insurance and trust professionals." Establishing priorities is an important part of the process. "The financial advisor can assist you in understanding factors that will impact your retirement plan, such as your retirement lifestyle, risk tolerance, retirement date, unknown risks and your desire to support your family members or a favorite charity." Managing Risks Every investment decision entails some sort of risk, Liza stresses. I work with my clients to identify the factors and risks most relevant to their situation and plan for them. Liza lists a number of factors and risks facing Baby Boomers, including: Longevity Baby Boomers may live 20 or 30 years after they retire. Inflation Inflation increases the cost of living, erodes the value of savings and reduces purchasing power. Spending and withdrawals Overspending can adversely affect how long your assets last. Market risks Market declines and the timing of these declines pose risks. Unknown risks Major health events, disability, long-term care needs and other unexpected occurrences can complicate a retirement plan. The Unexpected Many retirees underestimate how much theyll need to cover healthcare expenses, Liza says. Income from investments and Social Security can go toward paying ongoing medical costs, such as Medicare premiums, deductibles and copays, but as healthcare costs continue to rise, this could place a significant strain on your retirement, Liza says. I work with my clients to try to anticipate healthcare expenses in retirement and account for them within their overall retirement income plan. Additionally, widespread economic weakness and market fluctuations have taken a toll on many investors, including Baby Boomers. If you are at all concerned your retirement plan may no longer be sufficient to meet your needs, dont delay taking action, Liza says. While there are no magic fixes, a number of effective strategies do exist for potentially minimizing losses, generating additional income and planning for growth. Liza can help Baby Boomers: Plan for long-term care needs not covered by Medicare or other insurance Evaluate and/or reallocate 401K or other employer provided retirement plans Review income and expenses and examine the household budget Assess insurance coverage to ensure it is cost effective and appropriate for current needs Review and update beneficiary designations Allocate a portion or a greater portion of their portfolio to undervalued, growth-oriented investments Address lifetime income needs Hedge income against rising inflation with certain investment options. We can help you look at your retirement plan comprehensively, determine if you have any gaps, and help you identify ways to potentially minimize losses in order to stay on track in retirement, Liza says. Thus, with proper planning, retirement may still be an option for baby boomers.

Opening celebrations are scheduled on Saturday, Jan. 18, noon to 3 p.m. The Clearwater Walmart Neighborhood Market at 2171 Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Largo store at 2677 Roosevelt Blvd. (at the intersection with U.S. 19) also will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Both stores will offer pharmacy services. The Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce is excited to welcome another Walmart Neighborhood Market to our community. New construction and new employment opportunities are always greatly appreciated, said Bob Clifford, president and CEO of the Clearwater Regional Chamber. Having the worldwide leader in retail business expanding its presence in our community sends a clear signal that Clearwater is a great place to live, work and play. We are pleased that Walmart has remained committed, both now and through the recession, to invest in our community, said Largo Mayor Patricia Gerard. We anticipate the new store will help grow and revitalize the Roosevelt and U.S. 19 corridor, and we look forward to its grand opening. The new Clearwater Neighborhood Market is approximately one-quarter the size of a Walmart Supercenter. It offers a full grocery department, including organic and natural selections. The store features prepared food options, fresh-baked breads, self-serve deli, a bakery, rotisserie chicken, and beer and wine. The Clearwater store is tailored to the community, offering local favorites, including Mediterranean and kosher items. The Largo store features general merchandise, including apparel, electronics, toys, sporting goods, and lawn and garden items. It also offers a full line of groceries, including organic and natural selections in addition to local favorites. The grand-opening celebration at both stores will include presentations of $8,000 in grants from Walmart to local community groups, including Clothes to Kids, Eckerd Community Alternatives, Fraternal Order of Police Pinellas Lodge 43, Frontier Elementary, Central Pinellas Chamber of Commerce, Lighthouse of Pinellas, WorkNet Pinellas and the city of Largo Police Department.Largo storeThe Largo store employs approximately 300 fulland part-time associates. Store manager Ron Freitas began his Walmart career in 1998 as an assistant manager at a store in Sarasota. Were excited to bring this new store with good jobs, great prices and one-stop shopping convenience to Largo, said Freitas. We hope everyone will stop by on grand-opening day to see the new store and take advantage of vendor promotions and giveaways. The new Largo Walmart also plans to celebrate with a Big Family Welcome on Saturday, Jan. 18, noon to 3 p.m. Customers can meet Freitas and enjoy family activities the same as those planned in Clearwater. For more information, visit www.face book.com/walmart3372.Clearwater storeThe Clearwater store employs up to 95 fulland part-time associates. Store manager Sarah Parker began her Walmart career in 2006 as a manager trainee. Were excited about bringing value, convenience and new jobs to Clearwater and about becoming involved in this community, said Parker. We invite all our neighbors to stop by on grand-opening day, see the new store, and take advantage of vendor giveaways and promotions. On Saturday, Jan. 18, noon to 3 p.m., the Clearwater store will host a Big Family Welcome that will give customers a chance to meet Parker and enjoy family activities such as face painting, cupcake decorating and free food samples while supplies last. Join the celebration from noon to 3 p.m. For more information, visit facebook.com/walmart5670.Pinellas County welcomes two new Walmart stores Photo by TIFFANY RAZZANOThe redevelopment of the Wendys fast-food restaurant at 10751 Park Blvd. is underway. One of the oldest Wendys in Pinellas County, the building was recently demolished and a new one, consistent with the companys current branding, will be constructed.Out with the old Price of postage stamps going upPinellas County residents might want to restock their supply of postage stamps before Jan. 26. The United States Postal Service is increasing the price of a First-Class Mail single-piece letter from 46 cents to 49 cents. The proposed changes are intended to generate $2 billion in incremental annual revenue for the Postal Service. Letters that weigh more than one ounce will cost a penny more per ounce and postcards also will cost a penny more with the price increasing to 34 cents. Letters, weighing one ounce or less, going to all international destinations will cost $1.15. Stamp prices have stayed consistent with the average annual rate of inflation of 4.2 percent since the Postal Service was formed in 1971, according to a press release. The Postal Service recorded a $15.9 billion net loss last fiscal year and expects to record a loss of roughly $6 billion in the current fiscal year, and has an intolerably low level of available liquidity even after defaulting on its obligation to make prefunding payments for retiree health benefits. A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation: 152 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. With more than 31,000 retail locations and the most frequently visited website in the federal government, usps.com, the Postal Service has annual revenue of more than $65 billion and delivers nearly 40 percent of the worlds mail.

Shiett Phone: 727-397-5563LETTERS Curtain rises on Downton AbbeyAlthough the BBC-PBS series Downton Abbey has entered only its fourth season, it seems to me its been around ever since Queen Victoria died. Its splendid story-telling, which is one big reason PBS has no shame in running each episode about 20 times. This allows you and me to keep from losing track of the plot and characters. It also allows PBS to frequently interrupt each episode and beg for money, and thus keep giving the world topquality programs. If youre not familiar with DA (as Im sure show-biz folks call it) please be assured I wont try to spell out complete details of the goings-on. They are too complex to be captured in any column less than 10,000 words long. A capsule outline might go this way: Downton Abbey is a 1,000-acre West Berkshire spread whose center is a threeor four-story mansion topped by dozens of prickly spires. Inside this English fortress are a married couple named Robert and Cora Crawley. They have three daughters and several layers of servants whose duties and status rankings would make a Pentagon organizational chart seem like a childs scrawlings. Ownership and control of the premises depends on who is married to whom, and for how long, provided none of the main characters are killed off in war, childbirth or traffic accidents. The Crawley parents want their daughters to find suitable husbands. Of course they do. If youve read much British fiction you already know that spouse-hunting was the chief activity of the upper-classes from the Battle of Hastings until the end of World War II. But the daughters have minds of their own, and therein lie many of DAs primary plot lines. One daughter, Mary, dares to do a quick roll in the hay with a visiting Turkish diplomat, who immediately collapses and died. This left Mary vulnerable to later blackmail threats. Her sister Sybil ventures into the new world of womens rights. The third sister, Edith, wants to find the right guy, but keeps getting dumped. Other complications arise from war with Germany, battle wounds, Spanish flu, death from childbirth, and financial disaster when Robert Crawleys investments in railroads go off the tracks. His wife Cora has a miscarriage resulting from her slip on a bar of soap, strategically placed by a vengeful servant, Mrs. OBrien. Sweetness and light, tinged with acid, stream out of the Abbeys several hundred windows. DAs talented creator and sole scriptwriter, Julian Fellowes, promises to churn out at least a fifth season, and wont say how many more might follow. Perhaps our grandchildren will slip into adulthood enjoying DA as much as todays fans do. Fellowes has caught flak from several directions because of his abrupt killing off of some major cast members. His defense, in some cases: he had to do it because the actors suddenly quit or their contracts ran out. For many viewers, part of the fun is figuring out the pecking order of the servants. Some work upstairs, some downstairs (a la the similar TV series of many years ago.) As a servant climbs the slippery status pole, he/she seems to grow increasingly protective of his/her position. The DA staff contains many more women than men, which should imply pleasant pickings for the men. Except that some of the male servants are gay. This is one TV series that demands viewers pay extra close attention, just to keep track of whos knifing (or shagging) whom. The DA story opened just before the start of World War I, when British society was still highly structured into a few socio-economic classes, and everyone was expected to stay in the level he/she was born into. But then a few million young men were killed in the War to End All Wars. Women won the right to vote. Labor unions grew stronger. Nazi Germany began to make threatening noises. Telephones and electric food mixers invaded homes. Housemaids and hod carriers began to find employment as secretaries and skilled factory workers. As DA leads its viewers through all these changes, you feel like a passenger in a gilded, drama-filled time machine. Like most BBC productions, the writing and acting of Downton Abbey are superb. You dont have to be an Anglophile to appreciate DA. But it will help if, like me, you are fed up with the obscenities, explosions, gunfights and curbstone grammar that dominate so many of American movies and TV shows. DA illustrates a culture that is long dead. But its delightful to see it resurrected again on our TV screens, if only for a few hours each year.Bob Driver is a former columnist for the Clearwater Sun. His email address is tralee71@comcast.net. Drivers SeatBob Driver Behind the erosion of public trust If you robbed a bank and got caught, you would go to jail. If you waited in the getaway car while your cohort robbed the bank, you would go to jail as an accomplice, right? Of course you would. Thats what the law mandates. So how come, after a bank stands mute as customers are robbed, do they get deferred prosecution? I ask these questions after this weeks decision by the feds to merely fine JPMorgan Chase for failing to report their very real suspicions about mega-fraudster Bernard Madoff. No criminal charges, no one is held responsible and faces jail time just $2.5 billion in fines and penalties for an organization that experts say will likely make as much as $23 billion in profit this year. Under the settlement agreement, announced by the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, any criminal charges were deferred for two years and maybe forever if the bank keeps its nose clean. All JPMorgan had to do was admit its bad conduct, pay the fine and agree to strengthen its anti-money laundering policies. JPMorgan immediately issued a statement saying, We recognize we could have done a better job pulling together various pieces of information and concerns about Madoff from different parts of the bank. Really? Pulitzer Prize-winning business reporter Michael Hiltzik, writing in the Los Angeles Times, declared the JPMorgan admission, Resembles hay after its been passed through the digestive system of a horse. Hiltzik also believes JPMorgan has re-written the history of what it knew about Madoffs criminal practices and when they knew it. JPMorgan, where Madoff kept his major bank accounts and which profited handsomely off its relationship in numerous ways, knew Madoff was crooked. Bank executives had him figured out ... early, Hiltzik wrote. Look, I dont know much about high finance, but lets review some facts about what JPMorgan did and didnt do after it had reason to believe Madoff was a conman of mammoth proportions. Keep in mind the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 requires banks to file whats called suspicious activity reports with federal regulators if they think a customer is dealing in ill-gotten gains. JPMorgan consistently stayed mum about its Madoff concerns, and under the law, that is a felony. In October 2008, the banks branch in London apparently saw great financial doom looming and finally registered their concerns about Madoff with British regulators. While required to file the same report in the U.S., JPMorgan did not. Over the next few weeks, the bank quietly withdrew some $300 million of its own money invested in various Madoff funds. By December, Madoff was in handcuffs, paraded as a master Ponzi perp before his horrified investors and the world. In other words, JPMorgan never lifted a finger to help protect clients, but when it came to protecting itself against risk, bank executives made sure they were ahead of the curve. JPMorgan executives likely consider the just-imposed $2.5 billion fine as simply the cost of doing business. Over the last year the organization has agreed to pay out a collective $20 billion for various serious banking violations. Imagine if you robbed a bank of, say, $1 million, and prosecutors agreed to let you pay $1,000 to make the criminal charges go away. Being able to pay away your crimes would never happen with an individual, but when it comes to financial institutions, the legal playing field is suddenly different. Why is that? Because our Department of Justice says thats okay. Remember the days when prosecutors actually came to the aid of cheated investors to punish those responsible? The days when charlatan convicts actually went to prison and names like Mike Milken, Ivan Boesky, Jeffery Skilling and Charles Keating made the news? Today, swindlers such as former Countrywide Financial Services CEO Angelo Mozilo a man widely considered to have been a kingpin of the sub-prime mortgage crisis can walk away from the financial messes they create by simply opening up their fattened wallets. Mozilo was four days away from the opening of his criminal fraud trial when the Security and Exchange Commission suddenly dropped the charges in exchange for his payment of a $67.5 million fine. Thats justice? Is it any wonder so many Americans have grown distrustful of both the federal government and big institutions? This is why so many citizens have come to believe that there are two justice systems in this country one for the average citizen and one for those with money and connections. While watching the U.S. Attorneys news conference announcing the latest settlement, I couldnt help but notice not one word was said regarding the federal governments failure to monitor Madoffs years-long misdeeds. Certainly the bank was wrong, but where had the SEC, the FBI and other government agencies been all those years that Madoff was scamming people? If someone as blatant as Madoff slipped through the cracks, how many other financial fraudsters are operating unnoticed today? There seems to be no end to the number of fingers of blame that can rightfully be pointed. Yet, hardly anyone has been held personally responsible for the myriad of financial crimes weve seen over the last few years. U.S. District Court judge Jed Rakoff recently wrote a brave essay about Wall Streets watchdogs. Rakoff, who has an expertise in securities law, wrote that exacting fines and promises to do better from institutions is, little more than window dressing, and he lambasts the shift in DOJ policy toward negotiating with companies. Companies do not commit crimes, the judge wrote. Only their agents do. ... So why not prosecute the agent who actually committed the crime? Is anyone at the Justice Department listening? Visit Diane Dimonds official website at www.dianedimond.com for investigative reporting, polls and more. Diane Dimond Protect Belleairs heritageEditor: We urge residents to please attend the Jan. 21 Commission meeting in Belleair at 6:30 p.m. and encourage officials to vote no on the RM-10 zoning change. This no vote will send a clear message to the hotel owners that the hotel must be saved and that the commission will continue to enforce the preservation ordinance until a buyer is found who will restore the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. The only place in Belleair where the new R-10 zoning classification would serve any useful purpose would be on the property where the Belleview Biltmore currently sits. Therefore, to pretend that the added classification doesnt promote the demolition of the Belleview Biltmore and the rezoning of the property is preposterous. The new classification would send a clear message to the current owners that the Town is willing to allow the hotel to be demolished and for the property to be rezoned and developed. It increases the value to the property as land that can be developed and provides an incentive to the owners to pursue demolition of the hotel rather than selling the historic hotel for less profit. When the same owners of the hotel property threatened to sell the golf course property to developers for the construction of town homes, town officials sprang to the defense of town residents who own property surrounding the golf course by actually buying the golf course and classifying it as a green space in perpetuity. The reasons the commission gave for stopping the developers was that those Belleair residents who purchased homes on the golf course would lose their view, their quality of life and their property values might decrease. Even though it was a huge cost and a big financial risk for our town, it was deemed necessary to protect the citizens who owned properties surrounding the course. It was the right thing to do because the job of town government is to protect the welfare of residents, even at great cost to the town. Those who own property surrounding the Belleview Biltmore deserve the same consideration of their view, quality of life and property values. The Belleview Biltmore used to provide residents with restaurants, a spa, ballrooms, meeting rooms, historic tours and hotel rooms for their out-of-town guests while generating good income for the town. If restored, it could do so again. If the commission stands firm and lets the current owner know that their plans to destroy the hotel and develop the property will never bear fruit, then they would be more willing to negotiate a fair purchase price with those who want to restore the hotel rather than seeking top-dollar for the property. The commission should be doing everything possible to prevent the developers from changing the entire landscape and culture of the area by demolishing the hotel and building condos and town homes that would absolutely destroy the view, the quality of life and decrease the property values of those who live near the hotel as well as many others who cherish the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Incorporating a new R-10 zoning classification sends the opposite message. It says we dont care about protecting the welfare of those residents who own property adjacent to the hotel. The R-10 classification isnt different enough from the existing R15 classification to create completely different types or sizes of residences than currently exist in Belleair. Therefore, construction of new condos and townhomes would almost certainly decrease the property values of existing condos by creating a surplus of new and comparable housing in the immediate vicinity. The current owners have done everything in their power to destroy the historic icon that is responsible for the town of Belleairs existence. We should do nothing to help these people profit from their despicable behavior. Instead, we should send them a strong message that we will do what it takes to protect Belleairs heritage and the property values of Belleair citizens, even if it costs the town substantial sums in lost income while waiting for them to sell the hotel at a fair price to those who would restore the hotel. Just like when Belleair decided to buy the golf course from the current owners to protect the property values of our residents and the heritage of our town, refusing to change our land use code to incorporate the new R-10 zoning classification would protect the property values of residents and would force the owners to sell the hotel for a reasonable amount.

Diane Hein President, Save the Biltmore Preservationists BelleairSave the Tides; the fight goes onEditor: Pinellas County is the most densely populated county in Florida. Our county leaders are currently caught in a struggle between further developing the last vestiges of our county green space or maintaining and protecting what little of it remains. The Tides Golf Course is a 66-acre golf course located off of 113th Street in Seminole. It is adjacent to Millennium Park and Boca Ciega Bay. The course has been in operation for over 40 years. It is home to varied species of wildlife. It acts as wildlife spill over from the park and compliments the entire Seminole and beaches area as a wildlife refuge and manatee sanctuary. The course also serves many tourist visitors who stay on our beaches just 2 miles down the road. Unfortunately, this land had been targeted for another residential housing project. Taylor Morrison, a residential building company, headquartered in Arizona, previously submitted a contract to purchase the Tides. The contract was contingent upon approval of a rezoning application to rezone the land from recreational open to residential. Taylor Morrison had submitted a housing development plan to county officials to build 172 houses and townhomes on the 66-acres. Their plan proposed a density of 2.5 units per acre. Recently, county officials suggested against approval of this plan. About three days ago Taylor Morrison withdrew their re-zoning application. The current owner of the property is Wells Fargo bank. Wells Fargo acquired the property after the previous owner defaulted on his mortgage in 2009. The previous owner did not default on the mortgage because the golf course was losing money. The previous owner of the golf course simply paid too much for the Tides in 2003, during the real estate bubble. Like so many of our fellow Americans, the Tides owner suffered from the sluggish economy and could not maintain the burden of an overvalued piece of property.Pinellas County property appraisers now value the course at nearly $2 million. Shortly thereafter, the bank assumed responsibility over the property. Ironically, about the same time the Tides owner defaulted on his obligation, Wells Fargo Bank received $36 billion of your tax dollars to keep the bank from failing. We were told that the bailout of Wells Fargo and other banks and financial institutions were for our own good. Remember that? To add insult to injury, about three months ago the New York Attorney Generals Office filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging Wells Fargo violated the terms of the recent multi-state mortgage fraud settlement. Now as 2014 begins, I am happy that we were able to repel Taylor Morrisons application. Many of us worked hard and donated thousands of dollars and hours of time in an organized, professional and effective effort to thwart this multi-state developer that is headquartered in the Cayman Islands. We won this battle, but not the war. With your help, the Save the Tides movement will continue to work with the county to protect this valuable piece of land. We also will continue to remain ever vigilant in its protection. Andy G.

The problem is its hard to find a job that works around children. Most jobs are not the kind that allow for you to take off when your child is sick or go on a class field trip or other school events during the day. Most full-time jobs are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and its hard for moms who work fulltime for a company to get off during the day. Because some moms dont want to be constrained to a set schedule, I have noticed a lot of them are starting their own companies or working for businesses where you can be your own boss like Pampered Chef, Thirty-One, Origami Owl and Mary Kay Cosmetics. This way they can work from home or work when their husband gets home from his job. I recently ran into a bunch of moms at a networking group called Business Mamas Referral Group Pinellas County. I had heard about the group from my sister-in-law and then again through a co-worker. I wanted to find out what this group was all about, and I thought I could maybe get some leads. For me, small businesses like this would be great for the marketing, public relations and social media that I do for small businesses. Since my co-worker couldnt attend, she asked me to fill in for her. You see, with this group, you cant miss more than two meetings a year without someone substituting in your place at the meeting. I thought how neat an idea it is to have moms gather and talk about their businesses and refer clients to each other. The Business Mamas was started by Realtor Lindsay Discus-Harrison, a mom with a young child who wanted to create leads for her business but couldnt get to the other referral groups and organizations because they didnt fit her schedule or her needs. She decided to create her own group with a few other business moms a little over a year ago and now they have about 28 members and are growing. They have a group in the Largo/Seminole area that meets once a month on the first Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Panera Bread in Bardmoor. The group is expanding and forming another group in the northern part of the county that will meet the second Thursday of the month. I thought it was fun listening to the moms give a 30-second elevator pitch about their company and giving one about the company I work for. The group does this to give each person time to introduce their business, so fellow members can get to know each company a little better. They feel that everyone in the group is a salesperson for each member in the group. Part of the rules and regulations of the group include that they cant have more than one person of the same business in the group. The members also have to make one referral a month to another Business Mama member or bring a potential new member to the monthly meeting. It seems to be working for these women. Some of the other businesses include moms who work as a photographer, pediatrician, hairdresser, professional organizer and fitness instructor. I found it also great to see they have business play dates. A lot of the moms in this group have young kids, so this is a way for them to socialize and network at the same time. What a great way for moms to join forces and help each other so they can work and be able to be with their kids.

The lecture and book signing is at 2 p.m. in the Pinellas Room at Heritage Village, 11909 125th St. N. Kilbys book, published in 2013 by the University Press of Florida, describes how the search for treasures along Floridas waters 500 years ago continues to remain part of the mystique of Florida. Dreamers, opportunists, developers, young families, tourists, and retirees often seek to enrich themselves and enjoy Floridas bountiful wealth. Kilby illustrates that the fictional mythology that has sustained the legend has actually transformed the historical record of our populous peninsula. For more than 25 years, Orlando graphic designer Rick Kilby has studied Floridas popular history and helped his clients in presenting historical topics in interesting, visual ways. A 1986 graduate of the University of Florida, he was creative director of the Church Street Station attraction in Orlando before launching his own design studio, Kilby Creative. In 2008, Kilby launched a blog about Florida history and culture, Visual Ephemera: Musings from the State Im In, on which hes posted more than 400 articles and received more than 200,000 page views. He also has contributed articles to the Society for Commercial Archeologys Road Notes and presented papers at the Societys conferences, including one on Floridas Fountain of Youth as a roadside attraction.

Former Little Brother Anwar Richardson said he was tough and rebellious growing up in the area. When he enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters and was first matched with his Big Brother Derrick Jackson, he didnt listen and resisted his Big Brothers advice. But over time, their relationship grew stronger. Now 30 years later, Richardson and Jackson are still in contact. Richardson continues to look up to his Big Brother and even followed in his footsteps. Jackson is a former sports writer and now an award-winning columnist for the Boston Globe. Richardson has become a successful sports writer for Yahoo! NFL. Richardsons story is just one example of the thousands of children the program serves every year. Bigs are ordinary people in regular professions who have something in common: a desire to help kids succeed. The organization has learned former Littles that to them, Bigs were superstars. Longstanding independent research and Big Brothers Big Sisters Youth Outcomes Survey data find children enrolled in the program improve academically and socially. According to the latest data, 94 percent of Littles in the program maintained or improved in their attitudes toward risky behaviors; 88 percent maintained or improved in parental trust and 83 percent maintained or improved in scholastic competence. However, the reality is more than 800 children in the community are on waiting lists for a Big. Part of the challenge is money: each of the Big/Little matches is professionally supported and costs the program more than $1,000 a year. Yet the results are truly priceless: happy, healthy, confident and successful children who had previously been at risk for failure. National Mentoring Month is a great time to join the ranks of superstars, by volunteering or donating today at www.bbbs.org.

After the photo, the snake and photographer went in separate directions. At left, a juvenile gopher tortoise, about 3 inches in length, suns himself on the apron of his burrow along the edge of the same nature trail. Cold-blooded reptiles burrow underground, under logs and dense vegetation to protect themselves from cold such as the area has experienced in the past week. They emerge to warm their bodies and search for food when the temperature rises. Cold-blooded reptiles Photos by JIM LAYFIELD Visit theLargo Leader @www.TBNweekly.comA heavy dose of winter will keep the anglers guessing Big changes have been taking place in our inshore waters; last weeks cold front dropped our water temperature nearly 10 degrees, and if dealing with those frigid temps wasnt enough to keep you inside, the bone-chilling north winds might have done it. Unfortunately, it appears this week well have yet another cold front and possibly windy conditions until late into the weekend. Speckled trout anglers may want to target those deeper mud bottom areas near to the flats that have been holding trout. When it gets super cold like this the trout will often school up right on the bottom, trying to warm up over the mud. Work quarterounce soft plastic jigs very slowly through the area, always remaining in good contact with the bottom, kind of like bass fishing. Dark colored jigs like D.O.A.s 4-inch C.A.L. jerk shad in the gold and bream or root beer would be good options for the darker water. Redfish have been more structure oriented, docks especially. Stretches of docks that have good concentrations of mullet are ones to look for. Cast Berkley Gulp! underneath docks and let the baits soak and wait for the bite. Look for those extreme low tides next week to provide some tailing redfish opportunities. Channel edges as well as the outside of the flats (often marked by no combustion motor zone signs) are good places to find the redfish bunched up, waiting for the tide to come in. Windy, inconsistent weather will keep many off the water this weekend. Those willing to brave the elements should focus their attention to the inland bridges and docks. Sheepshead fishing is in full swing right now and anglers looking to bring home some dinner should capitalize. Scrape barnacles around the bridges, and free-line them back behind the pilings for easy action. Around the docks try live or frozen shrimp fished on the bottom around the pilings.Tyson Wallerstein can be reached at capt.tyson@hotmail.com.

PETERSBURG High school juniors residing in St. Petersburg are invited to broaden their cultural horizons by applying to serve as one of St. Petersburgs student ambassadors to Takamatsu, Japan, next summer. The deadline to apply is March 14, 2014. Following interviews by the citys International Relations Committee, a citizen group charged with cultivating relationships between St. Petersburg and cities around the world, one or two students will be selected to live with host families in Takamatsu and experience Japanese life and culture. During their three-week visit, student ambassadors will meet local government officials, including Takamatsus mayor; attend high school and participate in daily activities with their host families. During past visits, student ambassadors have tried their hand at Japanese cooking, honed noodle-making skills, practiced Kendo, attended sporting events, and visited some of the areas historic landmarks. Upon their return to St. Petersburg, the student ambassadors will share information about their overseas visit with City Council and IRC members, as well as with schools, civic groups and others interested in the cultural exchange program. To apply, students must be a resident of St. Petersburg and have completed their junior year by summer 2014. Along with the official application, available online at www.stpete.org/irc/ambassadors.asp, students should submit an original essay and introduction letter to their host family as well as a class photo; a copy of their high school transcript, including verification of honors and/or activity involvement; an introduction letter to the host parents written by the applicants parents and two reference letters, including one from a school faculty member, must accompany the application. All students meeting eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply, regardless of their financial situation. Applications may be hand-delivered to the Marketing and Communications Department, City Hall, 175 Fifth St. N.; or mailed with a postmark of 5 p.m., Friday, March 14. Applications submitted via email will not be considered. While all international travel arrangements, costs, including round-trip airfare and insurance and home stays are complimentary, students should be prepared to cover personal living expenses abroad, including local transportation, visits to local attractions, restaurant meals or other incidentals. Since the programs inception, 48 students have visited Takamatsu as student ambassadors. Past participants have used the experience to pursue studies in international relations, Japanese studies, and international business, while others have deepened their understanding of world cultures. Host families also are needed for late July through early August when St. Petersburg welcomes students from Takamatsu for two weeks during the annual student exchange. Families of current and previous applicants and ambassadors are encouraged to participate in the sister city relationship by serving as a host family. Since becoming a sister city in 1961, St. Petersburg is believed to have one of the longest continuous relationships in the organization, commemorating its 50th anniversary with Takamatsu in 2011. Following official delegations to both cities, an informal sister schools relationship was formed in 2012 for younger students. For the last two years, students attending St. Petersburgs Perkins Elementary and Kinashi Elementary schools have participated in a virtual arts and culture exchange to commemorate the opening of Takamatsus annual Bonsai Festival.

Butcher, who has the ability to make Floridas wild places resemble scenes from the Garden of Eden, will be Januarys featured speaker at the St. Petersburg College Village Square Series. Butcher has been called the Ansel Adams of Florida and a national treasure. He will speak on the subject of Preserving Eden. Advance reservation is required. Registration is $25 for Village Square members, $30 for guests, and $20 for educators and students. Visit spcollege.edu/solutions, click on the Village Square tab. By mail, send checks to Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions, P.O. Box 13489, St. Petersburg, FL 33733. For information, call 394-6251. Butcher, who in a digital age relies upon simple, old-fashioned box cameras to capture his large-scale images, is being sponsored by SPCs Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council. Media cosponsors are the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU Television. An exhibit of 36 of Butchers photographs hangs at the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art at SPCs Tarpon Springs campus through Feb. 16. The exhibit includes photographs that express the personal bond between Butcher and Floridas natural landscapes. Some are as large as 4-by-5 feet. Butchers dramatic black-and-white photographs of Florida wilderness landscapes have been said to make your heart beat faster or even to change your life. Florida has recognized Butchers talent by giving him the highest award offered to a private citizen: the Artist Hall of Fame Award. He has also received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the North American Nature Photography Association and was named Humanitarian of the Year for 2005 from the International University. In 2011, he received the 2011 Distinguished Artist Award from the Florida House in Washington, D.C. Butcher is meticulous, and deliberately slow, in choosing and then executing his shots. He often takes months to scout out the right location, and often the shot involves standing in waist-deep swamp water for hours waiting for just the right light or the right cloud formation, sharing the swamp with alligators, snakes and other wildlife. His goal, he says, is to take pictures that make people feel like they want to walk into them. I want people to be drawn in and feel their way through the environment. He considers wilderness areas to be a sacred necessity, and that the mysterious experience of being close to nature is restorative healing to the human soul. The Village Square at SPC is a forum for nonpartisan debate of key state and national issues that operates under the Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions at SPC. The Institute serves as a resource for academic enrichment, a non-partisan venue for civil debate and civic engagement. Photo courtesy of ST.

Renowned organist comes to Largo ST. PETERSBURG The second annual Sunshine Music and Blues Festival will take place Sunday, Jan. 19, 11:30 a.m., at Vinoy Park, 701 Bayshore Drive, St. Petersburg. Tickets start at $49.50. For tickets, call 800-745-3000 or visit www.livenation.com. For information, visit www.sunshinemusicandblues.com. This year the festival headliner will be the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

The second annual Sunshine Music and Blues Festival also will be presented Saturday, Jan. 18, at Mizner Park Amphitheatre in Boca Raton.Tedeschi Trucks BandWhile last year was an amazing year for the Tedeschi Trucks Band, or TTB as their loyal prefer to call them, this year has been another strong showing as well. They have just released their second studio album, Made Up Mind. The bands previous album, Revelator, won the Grammy Award for Best Blues Album in 2012. Now, with the release of Made Up Mind, there isnt a shred of doubt that Susan Tedeschi, her husband and creative collaborator, Derek Trucks, and their superb bandmates are on to something something very big. For Derek and Susan, TTBs strength in numbers the band presently comprises 10 members virtually guaranteed that a wide range of influences would steer the music to new, previously unexplored places. That diversity is evident throughout Made Up Mind. I felt that with the personnel in this band, it was just a matter of time before all of these ideas started leaking out, said Trucks in a press release promoting the Sunshine Music and Blues Festival. But we had a lot of confidence that it was going to be really good right out of the gate. Today, as the result of carefully building it from scratch, Tedeschi Trucks Band is nothing less than one big happy family a traveling roots music circus of sorts, roving from town to town and pulling out all the stops along the way, never knowing just what will be the highlight of tonights show or which band member will be the one to shine in the next moment.

An eloquent champion of his instrument, arguing that the organ for too long has been excluded from the mainstream of classical music, Jacobs is known for his imaginative interpretations and charismatic stage presence. He has also been an important influence in the revival of symphonic music featuring the organ. The first and only organist ever to have won a Grammy Award in 2011 for Messiaens challenging Livre du Saint-Sacrement Jacobs combines a probing intellect and extraordinary technical skills with a repertoire that spans the gamut of music written for his instrument, both old and new. He has transfixed audiences, colleagues, and critics with landmark performances of the complete works for solo organ by J.S. Bach and Messiaen, as well as a vast array of other composers. The concert is free and open to the public. For information, visit poplargo.org or call 585-9969. See TOP FIVE, page 2B Paul Jacobs performs Jan. 26 at Prince of Peace Church. See SUNSHINE, page 4B

Required 727-593-3900010914 011614 studio album since 2010s acclaimed Georgia Warhorse. This River, like his previous releases, was produced by Grey and Dan Prothero, and recorded at Retrophonics Studio in St. Augustine, with additional recording done in Greys home studio, known as The Egg Room. As proven by his previous albums, Grey is a meticulous storyteller. Many of the new songs are about being your own worst enemy, and about normal folks pushing themselves over the edge, says Grey in a press release from Alligator Records. Greys lyrics and slice-of-life scenarios are filled with honest detail, helping to bring his emotionally complex characters to life in songs such as Somebody Else, Shades Of Crazy, The Ballad Of Larry Webb and This River. I see a little bit of myself in these songs, Grey said. The difference is in the choices people make. His gritty vocals and punchy horn arrangements add even more depth to the lyrical album. Greys fervent delivery and the expert musicianship of the band pull the listener deep inside each track, making This River a deeply moving and engaging musical statement. I took my time and Im happy for it, said Grey. JJ Grey is from Jacksonville. He made his recording debut in 2001 with Blackwater, following up in 2004 with Lochloosa. In 2007, Grey released his Alligator debut, Country Ghetto, followed by 2008s Orange Blossoms. With the release of 2010s Georgia Warhorse, Grey stepped further into the mainstream view with the AAA radio breakout single The Sweetest Thing. In 2011 the full fury of the bands live show was captured on the live CD/DVD Brighter Days. From his early days playing cover music behind chicken wire at a Jacksonville juke joint to playing sold-out shows and some of the largest music festivals in the world, its been a long road. But Grey has no illusions about where hes headed or where hes been. When prompted with questions about his past accomplishments or future plans, he lays down a little backwoods wisdom: Im just a salmon swimming upstream, Grey said. Going back home, I reckon. I dont know why and I quit caring why a long time ago. I guess there is no why that my mind could understand anyway. All I do know is that Ive enjoyed and Im still enjoying every second of just being here and doing whatever it is Im doing.More blues on the billAlso appearing at this years festival are New Orleans favorites Galactic, legendary Leon Russell, the great acoustic blues of Hot Tuna with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady; the incredible jazz bassist Stanley Clarke, guitar virtuoso Bobby Lee Rogers and British blues guitarist and singer Oli Brown as well as The Ringers. Jimmy Herring, Wayne Krantz, Michael Landau, Gary Novak and Etienne Mbappe will join forces as The Ringers to perform at the festival. The Ringers first debuted in early 2013 for a very exclusive tour on the east coast. The tour proved quite fulfilling for the iconic five-some, bringing together their varied backgrounds of rock, funk, jazz, blues and African styles. The original concept behind The Ringers was to bring five guys together, not to just perform as a super-group, but to work as a unifying artistic force, one where people put music ahead of their egos to collectively create great music. These five veteran musicians will perform together on new Ringers material written exclusively for this band, as well as each individuals solo material, covers tunes chosen by the players and brand new tunes each artist will debut for the live audience. The Ringers are also planning to record an album of originals, for release in 2014. Jimmy Herring, as the founding member of The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Project Z and Jazz is Dead, in addition to playing with everyone from The Allman Brothers Band, The Grateful Dead to Phil Lesh and Friends, and Bla Fleck, has made his indelible impact on the music world. He currently serves as the lead guitarist for the very popular American band Widespread Panic and released his second solo album, Subject To Change Without Notice, last year. Wayne Krantz released his tenth album, Howie 61, last year to glowing critical praise. Krantz has played with Randy Brecker, Leni Stern and Steely Dan, among others. Musician and composer Michael Landau is a prolific session guitarist and performer who has played on hundreds of records since the 1980s, some session highlights include: Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, B.B. King, Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. He has toured with Robben Ford, the Steve Gadd Band, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and his own project The Michael Landau Group. Bass player Etienne Mbappe, is best known for his years with the Zawinul Syndicate. In the s, he was the masterpiece of the jazz fusion band Ultramarine which incorporated jazz with elements of African and Caribbean influences. He also played with Ray Charles on his last album and is currently a member of John McLaughlins 4th Dimension. Gary Novak, an amazing drummer, began his career at the young age of 10, playing in his famous pianist fathers trio in Chicago. Novak has recorded and/or toured with such musical luminaries as Chick Corea, Alanis Morrisette, Allan Holdsworth, Andrew WK, Michael McDonald, Natalie Cole, David Sanborn, George Benson and Anita Baker along with many more. Galactic was formed 18 years ago in New Orleans, and they cut their teeth playing the biggest party in America: Mardi Gras, when the town shuts down entirely to celebrate. Galactic is a collaborative band with a unique format. Its a stable quintet that plays together with high musicianship. Though the band hasnt had a lead singer for years, it is not purely an instrumental group. Galactic is part of a diverse community of musicians, and in their own studio they have the luxury of experimenting. So on their albums, they do something thats unusual in rock but not so controversial an idea in, say, hiphop: they create something thats a little like a revue, a virtual show featuring different vocalists (mostly from New Orleans) and instrumental soloists each taking their turn on stage in the Galactic sound universe. Leon Russell is a music legend and perhaps the most accomplished and versatile musician in the history of rock n roll. In his distinguished and unique 50 year career, he has played on, arranged, written and/or produced some of the best records in popular music.

A lot of her ideas come from customers who cant find exactly what they are looking for. She then goes home, develops a pattern that will be useful and fun. She has been working with American Craft Endeavors for just over four years and truly enjoys working with them and the customers they bring out to the craft fairs. Richard D. Wise is a nature photographer based in Northeastern Ohio. Wise has been in the photographic business for 40 years in one form or another. He was a Navy photographer in Vietnam. He served as an aerial photographer in the Pacific and in Washington, D.C. Wise photographed former President Nixons inaugural and other political events in the Washington, D.C. area. He worked as a photographic technician for NASA in Greenbelt, Md. He has worked at numerous studios, producing images for advertising, models portfolios, weddings, and portraits. At times, looking for refuge from the pressures of everyday commercial work, Wise would step lightly into the quiet world of photo art. Working with still lifes and nudes, he found relief from the routine of commercial work. Although he enjoyed his work, he was searching for photographic satisfaction on a higher level. Because of his lifelong outdoor background, he gravitated to the world of nature photography. Wises photographs have been published in magazines, calendars, and have earned high honors in regional photography competitions. American Craft EndeavorsAmerican Craft Endeavors produces some of the nations most exciting high-end juried craft shows in many of Floridas vibrant downtown areas and popular tourist destinations including the Lauderdale by the Sea Craft Festival in Fort Lauderdale, the Holiday Craft Festival on the Ocean in Jupiter and Juno Beach and the Siesta Fiesta Craft Festival in Sarasota. The groups founders personally select unique, culture rich cities for their show locations providing a complete outdoor experience unmatched by other festivals. All crafters are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants in order to ensure a superior event featuring diverse art media and the highest quality of original handmade crafts.
